Do you ever feel like you’re carrying around a lot of emotional baggage from your childhood? Do you find yourself repeating the same patterns in your relationships, or struggling with low self-esteem? If so, you may be in need of some inner child healing.

As children, we all experience pain and trauma. Some of us may have been neglected, abused, or abandoned. Others may have simply felt unloved or unsupported. During our childhood, pain, and trauma are inevitable. Neglect, abuse, abandonment, or the feeling of being unloved and unsupported may have shaped our experiences. Regardless of the cause, these encounters can inflict emotional wounds that persist into adulthood, influencing our relationships and self-esteem.

Our childhood experiences have a profound impact on our lives, shaping our beliefs, behaviors, and emotional well-being. The inner child represents the vulnerable, innocent, and authentic part of ourselves that carries the wounds, traumas, and unmet needs of our past.

If you want to break persistent behaviors and boost self-esteem, inner child healing requires treating unhealed emotional traumas from childhood. By understanding and addressing our emotional needs, encouraging self-compassion, and building a foundation for personal development and fulfillment, we may nurture and heal our inner child and build stronger relationships.

Healing the inner child is a transformative journey that allows us to address these unresolved issues, nurture our inner selves, and cultivate a sense of wholeness and self-compassion.

5. Revisit joy

Revisit joy

Revisiting the joys of childhood can be a powerful way to start healing your inner child. When we do things that bring us joy, we reconnect with the child within us.

There are many different things that can bring us joy. Some common examples include spending time in nature, playing with children, listening to music, dancing, or creating art. The important thing is to find activities that make you feel happy and carefree.

If you’re not sure what brings you joy, take some time to reflect on your childhood. What activities did you enjoy when you were a child? What made you laugh? What made you feel happy? Once you have a better understanding of what brings you joy, you can start to incorporate more of these activities into your life.

Revisiting joy is a journey, not a destination. Be patient with yourself and with your inner child. With time and practice, you can begin to heal the wounds of your past and create a more joyful and fulfilling life.

Here are some additional tips for revisiting joy to start healing your inner child:

  • Be creative:

    Let your imagination run wild and try new things.

  • Be playful:

    Don’t take yourself too seriously and have fun.

  • Be kind to yourself:

    Forgive yourself for any mistakes you’ve made in the past and focus on the present moment.

  • Be grateful:

    Appreciate all the good things in your life, big and small.

Remember, healing your inner child is a process. There will be ups and downs, but with time and effort, you can create a more loving and compassionate relationship with yourself.

6. Be open to receiving love and support

love and support

To start healing your inner child, it’s important to be open to receiving love and support. This means allowing yourself to be cared for by others, both physically and emotionally. It also means being willing to ask for help when you need it. When you’re open to receiving love and support, you’re giving your inner child the gift of healing.

Here are some specific ways to be open to receiving love and support:

  • Spend time with people who make you feel loved and supported

    This could be family, friends, a therapist, or a religious or spiritual community.

  • Ask for help when you need it

    Don’t be afraid to reach out to others for help with tasks, emotional support, or anything else you need.

  • Take care of yourself

    This means eating healthy, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly. It also means taking time for activities that you enjoy and that make you feel good.

You’re giving your inner child the priceless gift of healing when you let yourself be vulnerable to receiving love and encouragement. This can help you to feel more loved, supported, and secure. It can also help you to overcome past pain and trauma, and to build a stronger, healthier sense of self.

7. Talk to a therapist

Talking to a therapist can be a helpful way to start healing your inner child. A therapist can help you to understand your childhood experiences, to process your emotions, and to develop healthy coping mechanisms. They can also provide you with support and guidance as you work through your healing journey.

If you are considering talking to a therapist, there are a few things you can do to prepare. First, it is important to find a therapist who is experienced in working with childhood trauma. You can ask your friends, family, or doctor for recommendations, or you can search online for therapists in your area.

Once you have found a therapist, it is important, to be honest with them about your childhood experiences and how they are affecting you in the present. The therapist will need to understand your specific needs in order to provide you with the best possible care.

Healing your inner child is a journey, and it takes time and effort. However, with the help of a therapist, you can begin to heal the wounds of your past and create a more positive future for yourself.

Here are some additional tips for talking to a therapist about your inner child:

  • Be open and honest about your experiences.
  • Be patient with yourself and the process.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Hi, Avisha : You are an incredibly gifted tarot card reader and the reading with you recently was truly an enlightening experience. Your readings are both insightful and accurate, providing valuable guidance and direction for those seeking answers. Your intuition and ability to connect with the cards is truly remarkable. You have a deep understanding of the tarot and how to interpret the meanings of the cards. The reading was delivered with compassion and understanding, and I left feeling reassured and positive. Your ability to help people gain clarity and direction in their lives is admirable. Your readings are not only precise but also very helpful in providing deeper understanding. You possess a unique talent in deciphering and interpreting the messages of the cards. I appreciate the time and energy you put into every reading. Most importantly you said exactly same as what my horoscope guru has told before. I thank you for sharing your gifts with me.

"One of the best experiences of my life! I have worked with many healers, but the experience with Avisha was unique. Above all, we covered and healed as many areas in 11 days as we would “normally” in 4 months. With her range of knowledge, she is a real gift to anyone who will work with her."

Often heard that " life is a roller coaster", experienced this recently.

Life is unpredictable, what is happening next is next to impossible to explain, a time came in my life where there was darkness everywhere, my sister was inch by inch by my side. Lots of talks, discussions, and solutions were done but all in vain. Then my sister introduced me to Avisha Mathur.

Words fail to describe her. If you are stuck in life and have lost your direction of life Avisha is the google.

Right from the first meeting my problems became smaller and smaller and I became clearer and clearer. She is a perfect blend of not less and not too much. Her tough and appropriate counselling gave me an awakening and nudge to move away from the inflicted dilemmas, she helped me to come out of my mental loop of problem and solution. She made me realize that the remote control of my life is in my hands.Avisha guided me like a small child lost in woods .My life is still under construction but now I know which step to take next.

A big difference, a huge change and I regained my lost smile which was very dear to me. Thank you Avisha. Buzz her if vou are stuck in life. # rise above the problems with AVISHA.

I connected with Dr Avisha at the lowest point in my life (both personally and professionally). I had lost my confidence and doubted myself even for simple tasks.

Routine jobs would overwhelm me.

I couldn't talk to my dear ones and gradually felt disconnected from everyone. A painful miscarriage made me realize that i needed help.

Trealised how paralysed i was with all the negative thoughts and energy inside me. That's when i took 11 day session with Dr. Avisha, who was referred by a common friend. In the first session itself i could feel a connect with her and conversing with her (online) came very easy to me. What amazed me the most was how Dr. Avisha could perceive my feelings even when we were not talking. So after 3-4 sessions, one day i was troubled by something and i had a restless night going through the issue. In the next session Dr. Avisha told me how she could feel me having a debate last night (which i was doing mentally with my self).

Other sessions revealed how i was affected by my childhood events and how i can let go of my thoughts and inhibition to be myself again. Her non-judgmental and kind conversations helped me to be true to myself. After the 11 day session, i really did feel as if the mist of negative energy was lifting away from me. Gradually i took hold of my life and started bringing in positive changes in my routine which boosted my mental and physical health. Her sessions helped me find myself again and de-clutter my negative thoughts.

Since her sessions, i feel more confident in taking charge of my life. earlier i used to find various reasons for how i will fail a task and now even when i find myself in a challenging situation, i find a solution. Her continued support for the last one year has kept me being mentally stronger and more active.
Much gratitude

v\Living away from parents, siblings itself takes a toll on your health mind and soul, that too during the covid times, when you had no idea whether you will meet your dear ones again...

During these dreadful times, I came across Dr Avisha's energy healing sessions.

It was the bestest thing that happened to me during those tiring times.

It brought a ray of sunshine in my gloomy mind.

It made me relaxed not only physically but also mentally.

The energy healing sessions with her were the best part of the day and slowly the therapy lead me into positivity. It gave me hopes and made me a happy healthy soul.

I would totally recommend these beautiful healing session to everyone who is having a hard time in their lives.
