Spiritual Healing through Inner Child Work


For those of us who are on our spiritual journeys, we are all seeking spiritual healing.  Those of us who grew up in dysfunctional families, inner child work is essential for our emotional healing, and emotional healing also is necessary for spiritual ascension.  I want to share my own experiences with inner child work with you. If you are experiencing any of the following, then inner child work is for you:

  • running into the same trouble over and over again
  • never being content with yourself
  • feeling distrust towards other people
  • finding it hard to feel your emotions
  • feeling closed and isolated
  • always sacrificing yourself and making yourself invisible
  • always taking up the responsibility
  • not being able to say no or stand up for yourself
  • putting yourself under pressure
  • judging yourself
  • wanting to understand everything

Here are some exercises to begin your inner child work:

Play – Find an activity that you enjoy and that you inner child would like. I like rock climbing, caving, hiking, or kayaking.  You can pick drawing, painting, or playing in dirt through gardening. Play with utter abandon in that you play without paying attention to time, so don’t wear a watch and turn off your cell phones.  Stay in the moment, focus on your senses, and feel the pure pleasure and joy of this activity.  Play until it feels like meditation, where you feel peace, joy, and focus with no distractions on your play.

Love – Take time to love and nurture your inner child. When s/he feels fear, sadness, or loneliness, this is the time we need to spend with them.  First, sit or lie down in a safe, warm, and secure location; I prefer lying down.  Hold your inner child in your arms or lap, then stroke your arm, shoulder, head, or hair.  In a calm gentle voice, tell her that you love her, that everything will be okay, tell her you will love her no matter what (unconditional love), and that you are here to protect her always.  Allow her to cry deeply, until she feels calm and safe. Repeat, whenever your inner child is afraid, sad, or lonely.

Pray – I do not mean to pray in the religious sense. You can pray with your inner child to the Universe, God, your Higher self; it really doesn’t matter. Know that there is a higher power who can hear your prayers, and will be there to guide your life, and help you and your inner child find your way together. Trust in this higher power, and that we can let go of control of things we cannot control, and allow ourselves to let go of expectations of outcome in our lives.

Try these exercises and see if you gain more trust of others, have better self esteem, feel less fearful, and feel more secure in your life. Blessings and love to you always, Brooke (Copyright 2013 Kundalini Spirit with All Rights Reserved)

  1. Brooke you are an amazing woman. Everyday you get up and find the courage and the motivation to write and share. You are so consistent in this journey. It amazes me. My attention drifts all over the place. I was actually thinking of deleting my entire account and moving on to something else. Anyways love you Brooke. May God’s grace and blessings be with you.


    1. Hi Divine Grace, You are too kind. It has to do with my type A personality I’m afraid. I have set my sights on emotional soul recovery in this lifetime and maybe I will succeed with my Kundalini to guide me. I think of you often. With all my love, Brooke


  2. You sound great here. However loose the disfunctional family label. It is just another family show to a cliche judge. I come form the surface judgement of the supporeme dysfunctional. There is any part of my family that cant be surface judged as dysfunctional. What does the twin mean? I see it as what you can own to support yourself independantly without need for bailout.
