Are you ready to meet your inner child?
More importantly… Do you know who they are and why they matter?
Inside all of us there’s an inner child that was once wounded. And that inner child can have some pretty big effects on who we are and how we function.
Inner child work, also referred to as inner child healing, is a way to address our needs that haven't been met as children and heal the attachment wounds we formed. When you do inner child work, you become open to — and aware of — an entirely new world of possibilities for yourself.
In this week's episode I’m joined by speaker, coach, and entrepreneur Matt Cama to take a look at why understanding your inner child is so important and discuss how you can begin healing your inner world so you can experience emotional freedom in your life.
