The Inner Child is a concept used in popular psychology and spiritual healing to denote the childlike aspect of a person’s psyche.
It is often viewed as an independent entity – so that it may be viewed subjectively.
Exploring the concept of your Inner Child can be useful to address the remaining effects of childhood experiences on your adult life. Traumatic events, habits and misconceived ideas from your childhood all stay with you.
Your current behaviors can be drawn from emotional memory and even the experiences stored in the brain below conscious thought.
