Inner Child Work
1)'The importance and significance of healing the Inner Child will improve so many aspects of one’s life. When the past continues to reflect in our present it can manipulate every action we take and make for an undesirable outcome for the future.
Mike is a retired cop who never felt safe, no matter what. We dove straight into Inner Child work to find the root cause of feeling unsafe. To our surprise, when Mike was three years old, his five-year-old sister locked him out of the house.
To and adult, it’s no big deal but for a child as young as three to be locked out of the house and not let in can rock your world to the core with insecurity and fear. Mike came feeling unsafe and left feeling new direction and independence with a beautiful horse for a power animal. ' pg 21
2) 'As we will see with case Shane, some childhood imprints are not so benign and can cause anguish against parents and other family members. It can also be the cause of not knowing why some feelings occur or what can cause some people to act out horrific crimes because it was the same thing done to them.
It is when a victim turns into a perpetrator because the energy imprint is so strong that is it has nowhere to go except to replicate again and again. Shane was seeking refuge from childhood trauma of being exposed to pornography at such a young age by older siblings.
He had a rough exterior but an incredibly kind heart. As the regression rolled back to childhood Shane literally curled up into the fetal position and sobbed uncontrollably. He was brave enough to let the five-year-old out to express what was buried deep within. Feeling unprotected by his parents, vulnerable and shocked. As his story unfolded there was a time when he and another child who, in the same family, was exposed to pornography at an early age almost molested another younger family member. Thankfully, an adult walked in before the damage was done.
This is a prime example of how the victim turns into the perpetrator and acts out their pain. So many perpetrators are locked up for life, guilty of committing atrocities but only acting out of their own trauma. When the situation is seen from a higher perspective an understanding turns fear and anger into compassion. Acting out isn’t okay, ever, but to understand the ‘why’ softens the heart.' pg 21
1)'Jamie had PTSD from witnessing a friend being murdered and this allowed her great-grandfather to attach himself to her. She could feel her great-grandfather’s presence and it amplified the PTSD to an alarming rate.
There was a gun shot in her neighborhood and him/her jumped in the bathtub and cried in the fetal position. This was very interesting to me because how did the fear of guns come into play so strongly?
As we dove into the past, we discovered that great-grandfather had an entity attachment of an old friend who died in a gun fight. After removing this double entity from her, Jamie’s PTSD decreased incredibly, also a few weeks later there was gun fire in their neighborhood and she calmly picked up the phone and dialed 911 to report. No tub diving or tears!
Interestingly enough, two weeks later her ill great-uncle passed away. Jamie’s great-grandfather and the great-uncle were very close, and it seemed that once the great-grandfather was freed into the light, permission was given to the great-uncle to follow.' pg 32
