As an adult do you sometimes feel like an unloved child? What is energy healing and how can it heal your wounded inner child?
Eric Robins, M.D. says, Someday the medical profession will wake up and realize that unresolved emotional issues are the main cause of 85% of all illnesses.
In the previous article Self-Esteem: What is the Effect of Sexual Abuse on Your Inner Child I discussed abuse. Also, in Healing Your Inner Child: Feeling Your Feelings I gave some ways to begin healing your inner child. One way involves finding an energy healer who has done their own emotional healing to assist you.
What is energy healing and how can it heal your wounded inner child?
Remember as an adult our wounded inner child lives within us as parts of ourselves as we were as young children. Aspects of our inner child may have separated from our being because of trauma.

Did you know in countries around the world up to 36% of girls and 29% of boys have suffered child sexual abuse (The 57th session of the UN Commission on Human Rights 2001)? This works out to about 1 in 3 children affected by sexual abuse.
Fortunately, I never suffered sexual abuse as a boy. I, however, experienced as a result of emotional abuse some of the same feelings and beliefs which plague sexually abused children. Living with an alcoholic father for 18 years I picked up his deep anger and sadness and for most of my life believed it belonged to me. Like some sexually abused children I felt shy, socially awkward, and believed I stood on the lowest rung of the self-esteem ladder.
Growing up in the Western world we have been taught as children and adults to avoid showing any emotions. So when feelings begin overtaking us we stop breathing and apologize for feeling. As a result, our inner child, the emotional part of us, lives with its wounds and suffers.
Emotions or E for energy in motion wants to express naturally through our bodies. When we stop the flow of these feelings, they gather and become trapped in different parts of our bodies and our inner child. Repressed and suppressed over periods of time, they can develop into physical conditions such as heart disease or cancer etc.
What is the Truth about Feelings?
1. Denying our childhood emotional wounds will not make them magically disappear. As I said earlier, emotions manifest as energy. Suppression causes them to stay trapped in our bodies and our inner child. Pressure builds until we explode outward or the energy implodes inward and we suffer heart disease or cancer. Note: PTSD represents emotional trauma begging for release trapped in the bodies of war survivors.
