Louise Hay wrote,”There is a parent inside each of us, as well as a child. And most of the time, the parent scolds the child almost nonstop! If we listen to our inner dialogue, we can hear the scolding. We can hear the parent tell the child what it is doing wrong or how it is not good enough. We need to allow our parent to become more nurturing to our child.”
We all have that little child within us who longs for recognition and acceptance. Sometimes our inner child speaks up quite strongly by feelings of low self-esteem, anger, negative self talk, among many others.
One of the most important statements by Louise Hay is “IF we listen to our inner dialogue…” IF we are willing to be honest with ourselves we will recognize what kind of parent we are to our inner child. It is so easy to find ourselves in all that negative talk. We have been speaking it so long unconsciously. Now it is time for us to become more mindful and conscious of our relationship with our inner child if we wish to heal. Healing and nurturing our inner child will allow us to heal on all levels. We can heal physical habits and ailments, mental stress, and find our way to our spiritual truth when we consciously help our inner child heal.
Let’s all make a conscious effort to be better parent’s to our inner child. Let’s make a safe place for that child to exist and grow.
