WEEK 4: Nurture The Inner Child
"Childhood traumas, or the way we were parented, can result in deep wounds that in turn create
behavioral and emotional patterns that even the most aware may be unaware of.
That's because we don't know what we don't know. Our world is our normal, and it takes a lot of
effort to uncover the unhealthy patterns that we picked up. To us, they may be reality, while in
truth, they're false beliefs. You may have beliefs that are causing you pain that you can't even
see because they're so deeply ingrained in you.This is the crux of shadow work: Shedding light on those things we'd rather hide. Accepting it, all
of it, and then having the courage to grow into healthier patterns and beliefs.
Many times, our childhood wounds are the most painful and persistent. These are the wounds
that say we're not worthy of love, or that our feelings are wrong, or that we have to take care of
everything because nobody was around to take care of us.

ASSIGNMENT 🔯Imagine a time in your life when you felt the most vulnerable. Maybe there's a scene(s) you
remember or a time in your life you'd like to recall. (Ex. Being bullied in school, the passibg of a loved one)Hold the image of yourself in your mind's eye, and stay aware, taking in any messages that arise. 🔯Give that younger you compassion. Tell yourself, "I love you and I'm here for you. It's not
your fault. You did nothing to deserve this. You deserve love and you have a wonderful
life ahead of you." You may even imagine yourself giving the younger you a hug traveling back in time to give yourself love like this is very powerful. This may sound strange, but
I guarantee you will feel shifts if you include this practice in your shadow work. 🔯 Journal this Experience. Be detailed and write what you felt, good or bad.
Happy shadow hunting!
