*A letter to my younger self*
My dear sweet girl,
you are so bold. So loving. So kind.
You are so courageous. So compassionate. So wild.
Your heart is more powerful than you know.
Your ability to dream is more important than you know.
Some people in this world are going to tell you that you are too much.
Some people in this world are going to tell you that you need to grow up and be realistic.
You are perfect. Just as you are.
You are enough. Just as you are.
This world is going to challenge you. Try to break you down. Try to prevent you from being who you deserve to be.
This world is going to tell you that you can't. That you shouldn't. That you won't be able to.
And one day, you'll realize that 'the world' has been you all along.
That you've been telling yourself you aren't good enough, that you should be more realistic, that you need to change who you are, that you can't accomplish your dreams, that you aren't worthy of love.
Forgive yourself for falling for the lies you've told yourself.
Forgive yourself for believing them to be true.
My dear sweet girl, you are so lucky. So blessed. So loved.
You will discover the secret to a happy and fulfilled life.
And the beauty of it, is that it's been inside of you all along. ✨
Working with my inner child has been a key piece to my healing, and I frequently use younger self techniques with my clients. If you have been struggling with guilt, shame, anger, grief, regret, sadness - this work will benefit you. I promise. I keep a photo of myself as a child on my phone at all times so I can do this. This tool has healed parts of myself that I didn't even know were hurting and needed love. Pent up emotions get stored in the body and can show up in a multitude of ways, that energy has to go somewhere! So feel those feelings and heal my friends! ❤
