Healing the Child Within You

Healing the Child within you

When was the last time that you visited the child within yourself?

The child who has a playful nature, the child who is resilient and the child who is generally happy.

The child who is lost in his or her world without any regard for negativity, judgment or agenda of others.

Compassion, love and hugs should be given to that playful side of you. We get so serious and so quickly without the playful nature of dealing with situations. We are so scared to reveal that child amongst others.

I usually go and talk to that child often, telling the child within that I am a fried, a protector and an advocate of the inner self.

So be kind, joyous and heal the child within, it may just save in your life in a most vibrant, joyous and living light.

Healing the Child within you is an open dialogue and below are some books that you may enjoy.


Healing the Child Within

Have you ever heard of your inner child? Well, this is the classic book that started it all.

In 1987, Charlie Whitfield’s breakthrough concept of the child withinthat part of us which is truly alive, energetic, creative and fulfilledlaunched the inner child movement. Healing the Child Within describes how the inner child is lost to trauma and loss, and how by recovering it, we can heal the fear, confusion and unhappiness of adult life.

Eighteen years and more than a million copies sold later, Healing the Child Within is a perennial selling classic in the field of psychology. And it is even more timely today than it was in 1987. Recent brain research, particularly on the effects of trauma on the brain of developing children, has supported Whitfield’s intuitive understanding as a psychiatrist.
