This Is How You Can Test Your Chakras By Yourself

Published

chakra test image

Are you concerned about the state of your chakras but you don’t want to use any professional help? You don’t need to! Our chakra test will help you find out which chakras you need to activate and which ones you need to balance. To do your chakra test is essential to understanding how energy circulates in the body.

In fact, the chakras react to any external stimuli and very clearly indicate an energy imbalance. If you are one of those people who face the same problems over again and over again or have to be treated for the same diseases time after time, then this is a sign that the energy doesn’t circulate in your chakras harmoniously.

It is not difficult to analyze the state of your chakras, if you’re willing to watch yourself, your feelings and behavior carefully enough.

Take a notebook and a pencil for taking notes and let’s get our chakra test started!

Muladhara Chakra Test

Muladhara chakra test image

You should always start your chakra test with Muladhara chakra.

Signs of balanced Muladhara:

  • good physical health;
  • activity;
  • courage;
  • self-confidence.

A person with a balanced Muladhara loves the whole world: people, animals, and plants. He has certain earthly wisdom.

Signs of imbalanced Muladhara:

  • you seem that you are not able to control your life;
  • you’re dissatisfied with your body – height, weight, appearance in general;
  • you feel like you’re a victim of circumstances;
  • you’re trying to escape from the physical reality (in different ways – alcohol, smoking, drugs, etc.);
  • you feel fear and nervousness.

Signs of hyperactive Muladhara:

  • If your Muladhara is too active you can be angry for no reason.
  • It is difficult for you to control your negative emotions.
  • Greed, arrogance, lust, frequent injuries and bruises also indicate hyperactive Muladhara.

Question to ask:

Another way to test your Muladhara is to ask yourself  – “what do material things mean to me?”

If you tend to answer:

  • “everything” – it means that your Muladhara chakra is hyperactive;
  • “nothing ” – your Muladhara is blocked;
  • if, in answering this question, you begin to argue that money is just a tool that gives new opportunities – it means that your Muladhara is closer to balance.

How to balance your Muladhara?

Muladhara chakra can be blocked due to fear. Yes, it is your fear that blocks this chakra. In order to improve energy circulation in your Muladhara chakra and remove the block from it, you need to face your fear. To get rid of fear, you must first recognize it, accept it and identify its root cause. Then – transform your fear into love. Do what you’re afraid of! For example, if you are afraid of water – learn to swim! The overcoming of fear is the key to removing the block from your Muladhara.

Svadhisthana Chakra Test

The second chakra, which you need to check is Svadhisthana.

Signs of balanced Svadhisthana:

  • harmonious relationships with people;
  • feeling your own attractiveness and sexuality;
  • you love your body;
  • you have good self-esteem.

Signs of imbalanced Svadhisthana:

  • it is difficult for you to be joyful;
  • low self-esteem;
  • problems in relations with people;
  • you often feel guilty;
  • sexual problems;
  • indulgence in bad habits;
  • diseases of the reproductive organs.

Signs of hyperactive Svadhisthana:

If your Svadhisthana is hyperactive you often cry and suffer from disappointment. You are jealous, touchy and irritable.

sacral chakra healing image

Question to ask:

Another way to test your chakra is to ask yourself – “what do pleasure and sexuality mean to me?”

If you:

  • often indulge yourself with food, various entertainment (nightclubs, parties, etc.), bodily pleasures; find it difficult to cope with sexual desires – then your Svadhisthana is hyperactive;
  • do deny yourself any pleasure, constantly limit yourself to everything, if you find it difficult to talk about your desires – it indicates the block in your Svadhisthana;
  • respect your body and your right to have fun in a “healthy” way, and you don’t have food or/and sex addiction your Svadhisthana chakra is balanced.

How to balance your Svadhisthana?

The reason for blocking Svadhisthana is guilt. In order to remove this block, it is necessary, first of all, to understand the root cause of your guilt. Then make every effort to transform the blame into forgiveness.

Another reason for the blocking is the presence of excessive attachments, overgrown in addiction. In this case, it is necessary to make every effort to overcome your dependence on the people and addiction to your desires. Try to analyze what emotions you hide behind your obsession? Let these emotions go, do not block them inside yourself. Focus on recreating your spiritual harmony!

Manipura Chakra Test

Manipura Chakra Test Image

The third chakra you need to test is Manipura.

Signs of balanced Manipura:

  • self-confidence;
  • self-esteem;
  • the desire to achieve your goals;
  • optimism;
  • financial well-being;
  • career success.

Signs of imbalanced Manipura:

  • a feeling of powerlessness in stressful situations;
  • weakness in the body;
  • nausea;
  • dizziness;
  • disruption of the gastrointestinal tract.

Another way to “check” Manipura is to measure body temperature. If you constantly feel cold, your body temperature is usually low then your Manipura is blocked and unbalanced.

sun meditation image

Signs of hyperactive Manipura:

The hyperactive activity of Manipura chakra makes a person imperious, control-obsessed, abusing, aggressive, demanding, critical. Hyperactive Manipura can also be manifested through difficulties with money, anxiety, and uncertainty in the financial sphere, workaholism. If we look at the taste preferences of people with hyperactive Manipura, they can not imagine their life without coffee. If you constantly feel the heat in your body, it means your Manipura is overactive.

How to balance your Manipura?

The reasons of blocked Manipura are shame and frustration. As with the previous two chakras, to unblock Manipura you need to find out the root cause of the problem. You need to find out what you are ashamed of. After that, negative emotions need to be transformed into positive feelings – acceptance, forgiveness, and love.

Anahata Chakra Test

Anahata Chakra Test Image

The fourth chakra you need to test is Anahata.

Signs of balanced Anahata:

  • you give love and feel loved;
  • happiness;
  • you are kind, caring, and benevolent.

Signs of imbalanced Anahata:

  • you feel indifference to people;
  • the absence of self-love;
  • you are callous;
  • self-pity;
  • you are unable to sympathize;
  • the absence of joy;
  • problems in relationships;
  • capriciousness;
  • heart disease.

Heart Chakra Healing image

Signs of hyperactive Anahata:

  • you often blush;
  • in stressful situations, your pulse is rapidly accelerating;
  • excessive compassion and sacrifice;
  • the desire to please others;
  • you have a frequent feeling of antipathy to others.

Another way to test your Anahata

A good way to “check” your Heart chakra is a breath-holding test. Take a light breath, then exhale and hold your breath for as long as you can. If you can not breathe for only 20-30 seconds, then your Anahata is weakened. If you can hold your breath for a minute or more, your heart chakra works well.

How to balance your Anahata?

Anahata blocking occurs when a person feels grief. It is quite difficult to remove the block from the heart chakra because the feeling of grief is usually accompanied by a state of apathy and unwillingness to do anything. In this state, it is difficult to take a sober look at the problem. It takes a great deal of willpower to try to understand the problem in a state of grief, to see its root cause and to look at everything from another perspective.

Vishuddha Chakra Test

Vishuddha Chakra Test Image

The fifth chakra you need to test is Vishuddha.

Signs of balanced Vishuddha:

  • you are able to harmoniously express yourself;
  • successful realization of your inner potential and production of ideas;
  • a successful communication;
  • you have a constructive influence on other people through your speech.

Signs of imbalanced Vishuddha:

  • it’s difficult for you to tell the truth;
  • you stutter;
  • sometimes it’s difficult for you to clearly and convincingly express your thoughts;
  • you always doubt your own opinion;
  • it’s hard for you to speak convincingly, arrogance, deceit;
  • you have problems with your self-expression and self-realization;
  • you have difficulties in communication;
  • at the physical level, the imbalance can be expressed by frequent angina, as well as increased appetite.

Throat Chakra Healing Image

Signs of hyperactive Vishuddha

When Vishuddha is overactive you tend to speak first and then you think what you’ve just said. Often your words can hurt people.

Other ways to test your Vishuddha

To determine how well your Vishuddha “works” you can analyze your voice.

If you:

  • constantly seek to attract attention with the help of a loud voice, while you don’t want to hear others – this indicates hyperactivity of your Throat chakra;
  • constantly oppose yourself to others – your Throat chakra is hyperactive;
  • often involved in quarrels and conflicts – this also indicates hyperactivity of your Throat chakra;
  • if your voice sounds timid, you usually feel like you don’t have enough words to express your thoughts – it means that your Vishuddha is blocked.

It is also possible to determine the activity of your Throat chakra is to test your auditory memory. If you have a good auditory memory, then your Throat chakra “works” well. If it is difficult for you to remember what you said – this indicates weak activity of your Vishuddha.

How to balance your Vishuddha?

Vishuddha blocking occurs when a person is lying. That is why it is very important to understand the nature of lies. A lie is like a virus that’s spread from one person to another. It is dangerous to communicate with people who are constantly deceiving because lies are contagious. When we are surrounded by people who tell a lot of lies, we, without noticing, begin to lie too. It doesn’t matter how honest we originally are. Our environment always affects us whether we want it or not. Therefore it is very difficult to develop immunity to this “virus”, but it is still possible. To do this learn to distinguish truth from lies. Be honest with others and with yourself. Respond with the truth on every lie you hear. Don’t let your environment change who you are! But at the same time, do not judge those who lie.

Ajna Chakra Test

Ajna Chakra Test Image

The Sixth chakra you need to test is Ajna.

Signs of balanced Ajna:

  • wisdom;
  • good intuition;
  • psychic abilities;
  • empathy;
  • understanding other people.

Signs of imbalanced Ajna:

  • problems with visualization;
  • nightmares;
  • fears;
  • anxiety;
  • illusions;
  • pride;
  • shyness;
  • timidity;
  • insomnia;
  • headaches.

Third eye chakra activation image

Other ways to test your Ajna

You can determine the activity of your Ajna by using the following test: ask someone to write down five two-digit numbers, for example, 17, 84, 35, 47, 62. Look at this number row for 5 seconds and then write it down in memory. If you managed to write correctly all five or at least four numbers, then your Ajna works well. If you correctly wrote only one or two numbers, then your Third eye chakra is blocked.

How to balance your Ajna?

Block in Ajna is a result of a sense of separation and illusory reality. To remove the block you need to stop trying to seem better than other people. Accept yourself as you are and stop comparing yourself to others. Accept your uniqueness and the uniqueness of other people. If each of us is unique then any comparison doesn’t make any sense.

Sahasrara Chakra Test

Sahasrara Chakra Test Image

To complete your chakra test you need to test your Sahasrara chakra.

Signs of balanced Sahasrara:

  • you feel unity with other people and the whole world;
  • a strong connection with God and the Universe;
  • you realize your uniqueness.

Signs of imbalanced Sahasrara:

  • the inability to think clearly in a stressful situation;
  • you seek to “taste” all the “fruits” of spiritual achievements without learning to “plant”, “water” and “cultivate” them;
  • depression;
  • loneliness;
  • unwillingness to communicate with other people;
  • loss of zest for life;
  • fear of death.

Amethyst Crystal Image

Another way to test your Sahasrara

To determine how well your Sahasrara “works” test your nose-breathing. If you have both nostrils working evenly, then both halves of your brain are working well, indicating that Sahasrara is harmonized.

How to balance your Sahasrara?

You should not forget that Sahasrara chakra cannot be completely closed because we cannot be completely disconnected from the Universe.

In order to harmonize it, you need to learn how to trust the Universe and consciously accept Its help. Express your intention:” I trust the Universe and boldly move forward!” After that, you will notice how the power of the Universe leads you along the road of life and protects you. This will give you a sense of ease and unity.

Conclusion

All chakras are rarely balanced. There is a need to pay close attention to the areas where problems exist. This is an indication of what chakras you should work with to improve your life and health.

For balancing your chakras you can use affirmations, mantras, ritual baths, crystals, yoga, reiki, and other energy practices. Don’t forget to test your chakras and balance them consistently!

Proper Ways Of Using Essential Oils For Chakras

Published

on

Essential Oils For Chakras Image

In this article, I will share with you how to use essential oils for chakras properly. I will tell you where the chakra projections are located on the body and what essential oils work the best for chakra balancing. After reading this article, you’ll have all the necessary information to start using essential oils for chakras!

Projections Of The Chakras On The Body

All chakras have their own projections on the human body: on the palms, feet, head, are the areas where they are located. For chakra balancing, massage, and oil application, you should consider only the most accessible projections.

Root Chakra (Muladhara)

Muladhara, the first chakra, has projections at the base of the palms, at the base of the nape of the neck, and at the heels.

Also, a foot massage is a great way to balance your Muladhara chakra which regulates your sense of stability and promotes grounding.

Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana)

The projections of Svadhisthana, the second chakra, are the thumbs and middle toes, the right and left sides of the nape of the neck.

Also, a lower back massage is a great way to balance your Sacral chakra which influences your sensuality.

Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)

Projections of Manipura, the third chakra, are the middle fingers and big toes.

Also, a gentle tummy massage influences the functioning of the solar plexus chakra which increases your gut instincts.

Heart Chakra (Anahata)

Projections of the Anahata, the fourth chakra, are the little fingers and little toes.

Also, the heart chakra benefits from a supportive perfumed anointing oil applied to the breast bone or massage into the middle back area.

Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)

Projections of Vishuddha, the fifth chakra, are the index fingers and pointer toes.

Also, a body spray applied to chest and neck areas is an efficient way to influence the functioning of the Throat chakra which influences your expressiveness and communication.

Third Eye Chakra (Ajna)

Projections of Ajna, the sixth chakra, are the ring fingers and fore toes.

Also, an anointing oil applied to the forehead or through simple diffusion and inhalation is another great way to balance your Third eye chakra.

Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)

Projections of the Sahasrara, the seventh chakra, are in the middle parts of the palms and feet.

Also, a room diffusion applied to the airspace around you is a great way to balance the transcendent Crown chakra which occupies the space above the crown of your head. 

Massage With Essential Oils For Chakras

Chakra Oils

One of the most effective ways to use essential oils for chakras is to massage the body projection of the chakra. There are two ways of performing such a massage.

#1

Apply 3-4 drops of essential oil (but do not RUB) on the projection area of the chakra. Lie down and relax. Visualize how your chakra is unwinding and shining with its color:

  • Muladhara — red;
  • Svadhisthana — orange;
  • Manipura — yellow;
  • Anahata — green;
  • Vishuddha — blue;
  • Ajna — indigo;
  • Sahasrara — purple.

#2

Add essential oils to the base oil ( such as grapeseed, walnut, sesame, almond, peach oil) in a two-percent concentration. Apply the mixture to your palm and massage clockwise and counterclockwise on the front and back zone of the chakra projection. You need to practice massage for at least a week for each chakra, or better-21 days.

How Do Moon Cycles Affect Our Energy Levels?

Published

on

Moon Cycles Image

Chronic fatigue, burnout, lack of strength, and energy… Does it sound familiar? Well, you’re not alone! We all get influenced by Moon cycles. Unfortunately, not all of us know how to live in harmony with lunar phases and therefore we can periodically suffer from their effects on us.

In this article, we want to share with you how Moon cycles might be affecting your energy levels and how to balance its influence on your life.

The Affect of Moon Cycles

Every day the Moon changes its position, and depending on this, its influence on us changes.

The moon acts very harmoniously: some days it gives us more energy, and we feel a surge of strength and cheerfulness, and some days on the contrary — less so that we can stop and rest.

But more often than not, we don’t take into account these cycles and continue working hard every day. Eventually, this lifestyle leads to exhaustion which affects our wellbeing.

Most people overspend their energy, and therefore the energy levels often do not have time to be replenished.

Therefore, it is essential to always follow the rhythm of lunar cycles.

In Vedic astrology, the Moon is responsible for the most important processes of our life, such as breathing, sleep, digestion, energy level, comfort, mood and emotions. The Moon is responsible for our mood swings, swelling, fatigue, and cheerfulness.

When the Moon changes its position, moves from one Zodiac sign to another, wanes or waxes — we can feel these changes. It affects our health, emotions, and mood.

What Are The Moon Cycles And How To Live In Harmony With Them?

Moon phases Image

The Moon has four main phases:

  1. Waxing Moon;
  2. Full Moon;
  3. Waning Moon;
  4. New Moon.

One Moon cycle lasts approximately 28 calendar days.

In accordance with these Moon phases, our energy levels also change. And in order to always be in a good mood, we need to learn to live in harmony with these cycles.

Gradually Increasing Activity

The lunar cycle begins with the New Moon — this is the first lunar day. The Moon is just beginning to grow and gain its strength, so at the beginning of the Lunar cycle, we have very little energy.

At this time, we should spend our energy wisely, rest more and do some simple things, so that we can start acting more actively.

On 1st and 2nd Moon days you need to conserve your energy. Try to focus more on planning rather than action. Make plans for the month.

By 3rd-5th Moon day the Moon gradually begins to give us more energy. Now you can start to act more actively and implement your plans.

Starting from 3rd and up to 16th Moon day, we have more energy. During this period we need to be more active and implement our plans.

Please note! During this period, you can not save energy! Your main task is to spend it on achieving your goals and working hard.

How to use the power of the Full Moon?

Full Moon energy Image

The Full Moon (day 13-15) is the peak of our activity. This is the time when the Moon gives us the maximum amount of energy. Therefore, during this time we need to be especially active! If we work hard during this period, spend energy, then we feel great, and it gives us strength and desire to do even more.

But if during the Full Moon you feel like you don’t have the motivation to work on your projects, you feel apathetic and tired then it means that you are not spending the energy that was given to you, and therefore do not cope with it. The energy circulation in your energy body was disrupted.

You see, the energy in your body has to circulate. But if you’re spending all your time laying on the couch and watching TV during the Full Moon you don’t let your energy move and therefore you feel tired and apathetic.

Therefore it’s important to remember that starting on the 3rd and ending on the 16th Moon day we need to increase our activity and spend energy!

Slowing down

After the Full Moon phase, the Moon begins to wane, and with it our energy decreases.

After 16th-17th Moon day, we need to gradually reduce the level of our activity, allow ourselves a little more rest.

From 26th to 2nd Moon days, our energy becomes very low. Therefore it is better to deal with current affairs that do not require too much energy. It is important to rest more and do not overwork.

The end of the lunar month is given to us to rest, heal, and restore our energy.

Why Do We Feel Apathy and Fatigue?

fatigue image

If you start working hard on the 26th – 2nd Moon day you’re taking energy “from the future”. You spend all your energy reserves during that time and instead of restoring it, you’re just spending it. Then on the 3rd-5th Moon day the energy you receive from the Moon goes to compensate the energy that you lost. It turns out that the new energy is spent just to restore strength, and it is not enough for any other activity.

Now imagine that you work hard several cycles in a row on such exhaustion! This will inevitably lead to burnout, apathy, and chronic fatigue. You keep pushing yourself until you are exhausted and then complain that you don’t have energy and feel tired.

The good news is you can get out of this state if you start following the Moon cycles and live in harmony with them.

The Bottom Line

Try to live in harmony with the Moon cycles for a few months, and you will notice a big increase in your energy levels. It would be great to start a diary and mark your state, health, emotions and mood every day. The diary will help you track your progress and changes. Be attentive to yourself and live in harmony with the Moon!

Inner Child Healing: 4 Surprisingly Effective Practices

Published

on

Inner Child Healing Image

No matter how big or small we are, almost all of us have experienced some kind of trauma as children. 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 soulwork because it reconnects us with the wounded element of ourselves – the inner child. When we reconnect with this fragmented part of ourselves, we begin to discover the root of many of our fears, phobias, insecurities, and self-sabotaging of life.

In this article, I want to share with you different methods of inner child healing. I believe that these powerful methods will help you to rebuild a strong connection with your inner child and heal your past traumas which will surely improve the quality of your life and your relationship to the world.

You will probably be surprised at what you discover when working with your inner child. Instead of just looking at the symptoms of your trauma, you will go straight to the core and identify when a fear, phobia, or certain lifestyle has started to form.

Types Of Childhood Trauma

childhood trauma image

First of all, it is important to understand that there are different types of childhood traumas. They can be physical (including sexual), emotional, and mental. In addition, when the childhood trauma was too severe or repeated so many times that the soul got lost behind these wounds. The return of the soul is the process of extracting hidden or inaccessible parts of the soul.

However, not all childhood traumas lead to “loss of soul”, but they may well lead to a vulnerable psyche. This can lead to problems such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, phobias, destructive behaviors, and even chronic diseases.

For better understanding, let me share with you different examples of the childhood traumas.

The examples of the childhood trauma:

  • An emotionally unavailable parent who hides the affection.
  • Physical punishments by means of slapping, beating, pulling by the hair, pinching, scratching, or washing the mouth with soap, etc.
  • Molestation, showing pornography, or any other sexual activity.
  • Parents’ divorce.
  • Inappropriate or burdensome responsibilities (for example, taking care of your parents).
  • Not having food or a safe place to live.
  • Being left unattended for a long time.
  • Emotional neglect, lack of support.
  • Name-calling and verbal abuse.
  • Humiliating the child’s personality.
  • Damage to the child’s personal belongings.
  • Excessive requirements.
  • Humiliations.
  • Death of people you love.
  • Car accidents, or other traumatic events, etc.

Of course, there are more examples of childhood trauma. These examples are given so that you can get an idea of what the inner child could be dealing with.

It is also important to remember that our parents were not the only ones responsible for provoking childhood trauma – our grandparents, brothers, sisters, other family members, family friends, school teachers, childhood friends, and even strangers may have also played a role.

What Is Inner Child Healing?

reconnecting with your inner child image

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 to enter this world. She/he contains your ability to experience surprise, joy, innocence, sensitivity, and playfulness.

Unfortunately, we live in a society that forces us to suppress our inner child. But the truth is that while most adults are physically “grown-up,” they never reach emotional and psychological maturity. In other words, most “adults” are not really adults from a maturity perspective. Most people remain in a state of childish fears, anger, and trauma that has festered in the subconscious for decades.

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 inability to build healthy relationships.

In fact, we can say that the lack of a conscious attitude to our own inner child is one of the main causes of serious problems that we see in modern society. From environmental abuse to self-abuse, we have completely separated ourselves from our innocence and true nature.

4 Methods of Inner Child Healing

Learning to work with your inner child does not mean becoming a child; it is about reconnecting with the sincere, childlike part inside.

Inner child healing leads us to a state of purity and innocence. We all have the potential to experience true simplicity by reconnecting with and healing a period of our lives when we saw the world with openness and wonder.

In order to eliminate the feelings of guilt, shame, fear, hatred, disgust, and anger that we carry with us throughout our lives, we must heal the child inside. To do this, we need to earn the trust of our inner child through unconditional love and self-nurturing.

Now let me share with you the 4 ways of inner child healing.

#1: Talk to your inner child

self-talking image

Recognize your inner child and let him/her know that you from now on you promise to treat him/her with love, kindness, and respect.

I like to use a picture of myself in the age of trauma has happened. I’m looking at her and telling her kind words like:

  • I love you!
  • I hear you!
  • I understand you!
  • I’m sorry!
  • Thank you!
  • I forgive you!
  • I respect your choices and desires!
  • I always care about you!
  • You’re allowed to cry and express whatever emotions you feel!
  • You’re allowed to be yourself!
  • Everything is going to be ok! You will be living a life full of blessings and miracles!
  • You’re allowed to be happy even if everyone else doesn’t feel this way!

Make it a habit to talk to your inner child. You can also communicate by keeping a diary, asking your inner child a question, and then writing down the answer.

The more you talk to your inner child the easier it’s going to be to hear his/her voice and the faster you will be healed.

#2: Recreate what you loved to do as a child

Sit down and think about what you loved to do as a child. Maybe you enjoyed climbing trees, hugging a teddy bear, or dancing? Take the time to remember all the activities that you loved to do as a child.

Through working with the inner child, people find aspects of themselves that they, as adults, did not even know existed. These discoveries are life-changing. Keep your heart open!

#3: Practice Inner Child meditation

One of the most powerful ways to reconnect with your inner child and to heal childhood traumas is a meditation.

In order to make this meditation possible, it is essential that you first gain the trust of your inner child through the methods I already described above. Once you have developed a strong connection with your inner child, you can then ask him/her to reveal what earlier life circumstances created the trauma you are struggling with today.

Instructions:

Take a deep breath, relax, allow yourself to witness your thoughts, and ask your question. For example, you can ask: “Dear child, when did I first experience trauma in my life?”

Allow yourself to witness thoughts that arise and disappear. Your inner child can help you find answers. Remember that it is important to be patient, to love, and to accept. If your inner child doesn’t want to reveal the answer, accept it. It is important that your inner child feels safe, secure, and ready.

You can repeat your question from time to time if no answer arises inside your mind. This process can take from a couple of minutes to an hour or more.

For performing this practice, you need to have a meditation experience. Learning to be a witness to your thoughts can take a lot of practice, so if you are not used to meditation, you can resist this technique at first.

#4: Meditation-visualization

A more active way to connect with your inner child and early trauma is through visualization.

To connect with the inner child through visualization, you need to create an “energy space” or a safe place for your inner child. To do this, you need to visualize a beautiful garden or any place where you feel safe, inspired, and whole. That could be a place that you used to love spending time in when you were a child – the one that has good memories and associations with safety. After entering the energy space, you can invite your inner child to talk.

Instructions:

Relax, close your eyes, and take a deep breath.

Imagine that you are walking down the stairs.

At the bottom of the stairs is your safe place. In this place, you feel strong, reliable, and ready to support.

Spend some time in your safe space. Dive into it. What does it look, smell, and sound like?

After you have become familiar with your safe space, imagine that your inner child enters this place, perhaps through the door or waterfall.

Welcome your inner child. Give him/her a hug. Let him/her feel at home.

When you are ready, ask your inner child your question, for example: “When did you feel sad or scared for the first time?” It is important to formulate the question in children’s terminology.

Wait for his/her answer.

Then visualize how you’re sending your love and healing energy to that traumatic event and your inner child. Tell your inner child that you love him/her and you will always be there for him/her, to protect and comfort him/her.

Pay attention to the inner child’s emotions, facial expressions, reactions. If he/she is crying, let him/her cry. Give him/her a hug, try to comfort him/her. Let your inner child feel safe to express whatever he/she needs to express. Tell him/her how much he/she means to you.

Visualize how a warm green light is coming from your Heart chakra and going to your inner child’s Heart chakra. Focus on that light and let this beautiful energy heal all the traumas. Stay in this state for 5-20 minutes. Let the healing process complete.

Now give another hug to your inner child and say goodbye to him/her. Tell him/her that you’re always there for him/her whenever he/she needs you and all he/she needs to do is to call you and you promise to always attentively listen. Tell him/her how grateful you are!

Return from your safe place by going up the stairs.

Come back to your normal consciousness and open your eyes.

The Bottom Line

self-healing methods image

Children perceive the world differently than adults. We assume that some events or phenomena from childhood could not cause us trauma, but they could leave deep scars on a child’s heart. Therefore, it is important never to make assumptions about your inner child.

Through working on your inner child healing, you can learn to grieve, heal, and resolve the traumas that you have unconsciously held for so many years. This can liberate you and allow you to live a life of true maturity, emotional balance, and well-being.

I hope this article has inspired you to reconnect with your inner child and take your self-healing practice to the next level!
