Have you ever found yourself talking to yourself?

How we feel about a situation and what we do with it in action requires paying attention to an internal dialogue. However, we are often confused by the prevalent language in our heads as the "right" one. We take the stronger voice as rational while that may be our inner child's voice of fear, anxiety, depression, anger, loss, jealousy and other signs of disappointment that controls the outcome of our action.
In pursuit of growth, what mostly helps my clients is their understanding of the developmental age/stage that they are stuck in. Since many of their current choices are based on their childlike attitudes, they cannot become successful in any undertaking unless they learn how to rely on an internal adult voice.

Carl Jung, Emmet Fox, Charles Whitfield, John Bradshaw and Dr. Hugh Missildine have all used the concept of the "inner child" as the sum of all the mental, emotional, and sensational memories or beliefs that are stored in the brain. In this program I will be discussing the importance of having a clear outlook on "the child that lives inside you" and how it prevents your potential growth. I will also share some techniques that can facilitate a more realistic dialogue between the adult that you are and the happy child that is supposed to be playfully living with you.
