Can anyone release their inner child? The answer is both yes, and no. We can heal the wounded or misinformed inner child and release it from much of its suffering, but we cannot make it leave the body, nor would we want to. The inner child is part of the psyche/ego, without which there is no free will or choice.
Part of the reason for being incarnated to experience enough “pressure” on the soul to help it expand into new levels of consciousness. The seemingly “negative” experiences we have on this Earth plane are created to exercise our spiritual muscles and that help us move forward on our return to oneness with Source.
Someone recently asked me about being a walk-in and releasing the inner child of the former soul. I felt led to share what I wrote to that person because it applies to all of us.
“What you are actually working with are the cellular memories and residual energy of the conditioning and experiences the former soul had while in body. Those core issues are part of the psyche/ego that you have inherited, and this will continue to influence you as long as it is not healed. Once it is sufficiently dealt with, the triggers that cause relapse are lessened and you will be able to offer healing to others who have similar needs in that area.
“As a walk-in, you have accepted the mission to heal this wounded aspect of the human experience and transform the suffering left by the walk-out soul. And then to radiate that healing outward to all humanity. It’s no easy job, and many who come here to help get sucked into the illusion, forgetting who they are as empowered light beings. What you hear in your head and feel in your emotions is not always real—many times we pick up on the human collective conscious crying out for help, or we sense the frequencies of the torment being projected into the planetary field.
“We are here to transmute the negativity of the dark and chaotic energy of the Earth matrix that is causing terrible suffering in humanity. We have the ability to reprogram the misinformed mind/psyche so it learns to respond more positively to outer stimuli. This is an “inside” job that means we must diligently maintain the vibration of the higher realms from whence we came. I recommend doing inner child work to re-parent the inner child/wounded ego so it no longer gets to “drive the bus” so to speak.
“Being mindfully present in every moment is the key to accomplishing this. It means paying attention at all times without offering any judgement or commentary. Feel your body, listen to every sound you hear, notice every physical sensation, be aware of what you see, taste your food, and simply be aware. Pausing before reacting, and dropping into your awareness, gives you a chance to discern guidance from higher realms. You will then be able to wisely determine your best response in any situation. The energy we give out in any situation either anchors more light in the world or reinforces the negativity we came here to dispel. The more we practice, the easier it gets.
“There will always be challenges, so jump in there and get started. You can do this!”
We can all do this, so let’s encourage one another with some comments here.
