This is the critical exercise that ended up changing my life as of last year. Our Inner Child is basically the deeply sensitive part of us. This stems from childhood. If you’re unable to have difficult conversations, don’t have values, and people often walk all over you….it’s because your inner child doesn’t have a choice.
I actually gave an example of this last year by talking about my inner child being tucked away in a corner, crying, in a fetus position. This is how I had been for such a long time; and it would be so hard for me to stand up for me…because that inner child was abused verbally for such a long time.
Through meditative practice and so many other practices, I began giving that child a voice. A voice that was needed and a voice that needed to come together with my verbato self. To have both of these together was life-transforming to the point that I had quit so many jobs, terminated relationships that had me pinned down for such a long time, and that’s when I went into an entire new level of consciousness and life in general.
Here’s the practice.
Ask your Inner Child how they NEED to feel in every LIFE AREA. Their answers are likely simple and pure. Add those feelings to your lists.
My core desired feelings in these areas. Alive and sacred. These are two critical words that I mentioned in my previous podcast. Alive because I as if he was in the corner, and sacred because this is a part of us that needs to be treated in absolute wholesome and with care.
Your Inner Superhero: Every day is your best day ever. You have superpowers and are undefeatable. You are full of confidence and make no hesitations. You assume victory.
Here are my core desired feelings in this specific area. Dynamic, Gaia, Majestic, Holistic, Cosmic, Rapture. These are all the words that I had written down. These are also superpowers of some superheroes in the world. So for me to unconsciously pick some of these words and do this exercise…it all makes sense!.
Ask your Inner Superhero how they INTEND to feel in every LIFE AREA. Add those feelings to your lists.
Here are my core desired feelings in this area. Now, given the life areas and the words I have above, I would love to feel Dynamic in my career, Rapture with my mental health, holistic in relationships, erotic in s** (gonna keep in PG13), but you get the picture!
Your Future Self: You don’t need to see the specifics, but let’s say in three to ten years from now, you’re doing something incredible with your life. You’re deeply well, you’re where you belong with people who feel like home, you’re full of Love.
Ask your Future Self how they are ALREADY FEELING in every LIFE AREA. You’re getting their perspective from the future that has unfolded. These core desired feelings will again, pop up in my future self. My foundational work will be especially important holistically. I would love to give bliss as well as feel it with what I do.
