A healing mantra is a combination of sounds of a certain frequency. By chanting a healing mantra, we affect the area of the body that needs healing with healing sound vibration. Sound vibrations get into resonance with the diseased organs and at a subtle level correct their condition.

#7: Reparenting Your Inner Child
No matter how big or small we are, almost each of us has experienced some kind of childhood trauma. These traumas can be different: your favorite toy was thrown in the trash; you were abandoned by your childhood best friend; physical or emotional abuse by parents or adults. Inner child healing is a vital component of your self-healing because it reconnects us with the wounded element of ourselves – the inner child.
Working on your inner child healing is the process of communicating, understanding, accepting, and healing your inner child. Your inner child represents your first true identity when you entered this world. She/he contains your ability to experience surprise, joy, innocence, sensitivity, and playfulness.
When we reject and stifle the voice of the inner child, we accumulate heavy psychological baggage. This unexplored and unresolved baggage causes us to face problems such as mental illness, physical ailments, and the inability to build healthy relationships.
When we reconnect with the wounded element of ourselves – our inner child, we begin to discover the root of many of our fears, phobias, insecurities, and self-sabotaging of life. And then we become able to understand the psychological reason that led us to our health problems and heal.
