"The "Inner Child" is a concept that we often hear about but don"t fully understandAND NOT understanding how our "inner child" functions can sabotage everything we wish for as an adult!Your "inner child" is a unique part of you that originated when you were growing up. It was shaped by the reality and stresses that you experienced as a child and by the ways you tried to cope and survive as a child facing an often dysfunctional, sometimes frightening, adult environment."These childhood experiences are literally still alive within you, suspended in time. Only now, they have become a part of your subconscious mindand you are no longer conscious of their impact upon your behavior.Your inner child is a creative, intelligent and adaptive part of yourself that responds to stress the same way you did when you were that child.This makes your inner child both a resource and a problem.Because it means that your child's "voice" -- its needs, its pain and its confusion -- still exists inside you even though you are now an adult, and that part of you is still a child.""
