Thoughts on Healing: Inner Child Work

By  Rianne Collignon     June 20, 2024    Labels:, 




Dear people,


I've already written some Inner Child Energy Affirmations, have a Creating Joy: Inner Child video and spoken about Inner Child Work in my Dutch Column, but today I'm writing about it again. That's because I find Inner Child work so important. When our Inner Child doesn't get what it needs, we either have childish tantrums and self sabotage or feelings of depression and meaninglessness. Play is so important. So, today, let's do some Inner Child work!

Inner Child


What is our Inner Child? Spiritually speaking, a lot of people believe that we have this Archetype or part of us that needs nurturing, safety, time, energy and attention. If we had a rough childhood, our Inner Child often has a lot of needs that have been neglected. Giving ourselves what we need, heals in deep ways, that help us find a better balance.

Yet even people who have had great childhoods have an Inner Child who has needs. I am on the side of C.S. Lewis who said: "When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." We all need wonder, amazement, innocence, creativity, passion, trust and play just like we did in our childhood. 


Why do Inner Child Work

For one: it's nice to be balanced. Secondly, it's wonderful to have that inner child energy running through your life. And last, but not least, most humans have a tendency to take things too seriously, to get stuck in to-do lists and forget the meaning of life. 

Allow this youthful energy in your life revitalizes you and allows you to connect to yourself in a deeper way. And you can connect with people of all ages. A lot of energy healers have a youthful demeanor and/or youthful energy. It's because they are able to connect to this energy.


Doing Inner Child work also helps greatly to reduce our childish behaviors: tantrums, anger, unable to say sorry, unable to admit faults or  mistakes, rebelling, you first mentality or quid pro quo mentality. This behavior sabotages our adult connection. What we are willing to accept from children of teenagers, we won't accept from adults. 


When we are harmed in our childhoods, we sometimes stay stuck in childish behaviors. Or if we feel harmed in the same way again, we return back to that childhood state. Sometimes people are aware of the fact that they are acting like a 3, 5 or 12 year old. Sometimes it's a subconscious response. Yet in both cases doing Inner Child work will help heal us.

Inner child work ideas:

While it's nice to spend 15 minutes in meditation/manifestation or visualization, sometimes it's much simpler to reconnect to our Inner Child and access this energy within us. 


So here is a small list of idea's:

  • Take the time to play (with childhood toys, with something you never got in childhood, but still long for)
  • Take the time to connect to nature or animals with the wonder of a child
  • Take the time to return to childhood hobby's or activities! Enjoy those nerf guns or that swing.
  • Eat childhood favorites
  • Have breakfast for dinner or eat your dessert first  
  • Go to bed late 
  • Have a pillow fort or sleep over
  • Watch TV from your childhood
  • Give your Inner Child room to tell you what it needs/wants


 Inner child work exercise:


  • Take around 10-20 minutes for this exercise
  • Make sure you are comfortable and can't be disturbed by your phone etc.
  • Close your eyes
  • Imagine yourself as a child
  • Allow that child to be the age that is necessary for your healing - baby, toddler, child, tween, teenager etc.
  • Simply hug that part of yourself and give it your love
  • Tell that part you are proud
  • Ask what this part of you needs from you
  • Listen carefully
  • Discuss if you can give that at this moment or at a later time
  • Allow the Inner Child energy to revitalize you
  • Say goodbye
  • Gently open your eyes, drink a bit of water and do some grounding 
  • Do what you promised or plan to do it in the agreed upon timeframe
