Is Your Inner Child Running Your Life?
What part of you makes decisions?
Is it the adult part of you…or is it a quietly insistent, potentially angry, fearful child who makes your decisions?
I ask because if things aren’t going well; it is time to get to know that part of your Self.
Your inner child is in charge if any of the following rings true:
1. You are drawn to difficult people in love or at work – are you coming across like a bully in the schoolyard or is your rational Self in charge?
2. You spend money freely – or perhaps being miserly – getting a physical rush of satisfaction when you act like this, despite any financial or personal mayhem that ensues
3. You eat that last jelly doughnut or drink the extra martini, even though you know it isn’t healthy. Because … well, it’s been a difficult day
4. Financial, career or business chaos seems to follow you, no matter how diligent you are you can’t shake it
5. On some level you feel addicted to excitement and drama, even though you ‘know’ it’s draining and debilitating and you’re sick of it
6. You consistently attracted people who encroach on your boundaries in some basic way
7. You find yourself feeling angry for no apparent reason sometimes
8. You long to do things you can’t get started with. Yes, you’re scared but … why?
9. Procrastination is second nature … though somehow you get things done. But not without a fair amount of adrenaline because you need to rush
10. You buy things on impulse and return them later more often than not – or stockpile things in a room or closet filled with unused items
Basically, the foot-stamping or frightened little Self who, lives in your heart is so entwined with your life that there is little you can do WITHOUT your inner frightened child involvement.
Sometimes you might feel a little out of control.
For most of people, their inner child is firmly in charge. And the inner child operates like … well … a four-year-old. Or perhaps, even younger depending on the circumstance of your childhood.
Decisions get made and impulses follow that mirror that distinct 4-year-old logic. Which is why, the last jelly doughnut is impossible to resist.
Your inner child becomes the source of many of the unbreakable patterns and habits that show up again and again. And it is not until you begin to work with this formidable power source that things can begin to shift.
Like most people, you will need to spend active time first of all identifying your inner child … and then listening to her/him, like no one has listened to her/him before.
But there is something deeper going on as well. Somewhere back behind the annoyance and upset there is anxiety, as well as a strange, subtle desire to feel that feeling. Like a moth to the flame…, that familiar feeling is a powerful part of you.
You will experience a palpable gut-level fear around this part of yourself … the same fear you experienced as the kid, who was bullied at school and is now assuming others will bully you at work unless you keep your guard up or initiate an offense.
Indeed, it is incredibly familiar. Your inner 4-year-old knows this anxiety, this sense that ‘they can strike at any time’, and she/he knows how to manipulate her/his way to safety. So when you found your Self being drawn to and repelled by this part of your Self, it is the indoctrination and conditioning being reenacted. It’s this kind of recognition that will help you to begin to break the log-jam and end the pattern.
Now that you recognize it, you can call your inner child out into the sunlight and get to know her/his fears, needs and desires, day by day. It is best to sit quietly, tuning in and letting your ‘Little 4-year-old Self’ show up.
When you do this, you may be surprised how she/he shows up. In the beginning, your Little 4-year old Self might be pissed; furious really, because you had shown such a complete lack of interest in her/him.
You need to listen intently and carefully while she/he tells you how she/he feels. When you listen to her/him and affirm that you understand; your 4-year-old Self will began to lighten up. And at the same time, you need to begin to tune in to her/him more and more deeply.
Inevitably, your four-year-old Self wants your grown up Self to pay attention. Or maybe give her/him opportunities to express her/him Self in different ways. Such as: going for ice cream, going to the park, climbing a tree, etc.
Moreover, your big take away is that your 4 year-old Self is bewildered by the circumstances of her/his childhood all those years ago. And so all that anger, sadness, fear, frustration, anxiety you’ve held has begun to finally dissolve.
You no longer need to rant at your Self or others for opportunities missed and mistakes made. Instead, you can be compassionate as you tune into this sweet little soul’s innocent heart. You can remind your 4-year-old Self, everything will be Okay.
You are a child of the Universe throughout your life. It is when you recognize that and feed your Self accordingly that life becomes more and more beautiful. And as you become more and more transparent, allowing God’s grace to shine through you, you will reach a new level of happiness.
Take a moment right now to close your eyes and say, ‘Hello’ to your inner child, who lives within. No doubt your 4-year-old Self has been waiting for you to recognize her/him and give her/him the opportunity to express her/him Self in an empowered way.
