[Episode 11 – Bringing Awareness To Your Inner Child Begins]
Hello beautiful soul, I’m so excited to bring to you another episode of The Grow Through It Podcast with Phi Dang.
Today’s episode requires going back in time. Back in time to when you were a child.
Bet you hadn’t thought about that in a while right? How long ago was that for you?
It’s interesting as adults we hardly revisit or think about ourselves as a child.
By child – the full spectrum from the early years of our life to when we hit puberty to when we become an independent adult.
Psychologically so much of who we are has been shaped by these early years of life.
What’s prompted this episode is the work I’ve been doing with a few of my clients.
We are exploring how the inner child can impact who we are today.
It shows up in relationships – our fears and what keeps us from being open and vulnerable. For my clients its manifested in feeling like you need someone to complete you, to save you, that everything in your life will be instantly better when you are in a relationship. It shows up in anger and resenting a partner for not meeting your needs, feeling the need to be the caretaker or parent of your partner and being scared of rejection and abandonment.
It shows up in our belief systems – a client recalls how her parents migrating to Australia have shaped her view of what it means to have a job, career particularly as a woman. Another on how it’s shaped the way she sees money, how hard it can be to make money, how money always feels scarce even when it’s not. Fears around investing money and spending money.
