"There is no coming to consciousness without pain"-Carl Jung
~Reality in Consciousness
I do understand how strange and "touchy" it might sound or be when a topic such as healing an inner-child is brought up during discussion when a person has reached a full-grown stage in their adulthood. People might think critically about you, question your identity, and consciously assume that you should just get over these things as time progresses, and you know what, they may be right. But what are the tools for you to use so that past childhood experiences no longer hold you back in life?
Connecting your inner-child to whom you are today is pertinent in the succession of life. When you learn how to hear and understand the wounded child that is always communicating or observing the naturally optimistic one, you are made aware of your heart’s desires. Having discernment of the scarred child or reconnecting with your natural enthusiasm should be recognizable to you.
Even if you are 55+years or more in years, there were experiences in your childhood that landed you into the emotional, mental, physical, and Spiritual spaces of today. If you are in disarray right now because of a “faulty” childhood, always remember that it was an experience to get you to the next vehicle in life. What route you take to get to the next destination is completely up to you.
The inner-child is one of those concepts that is being used regularly today. Other ways to describe the same meaning are the wounded child, the child within, or child-like behavior. The wounded child exists as the child-like aspect within your unconscious mind. It indicates the child you once were, in both positive and negative facets.
HOW TO RECOGNIZE IN YOU A WOUNDED INNER-CHILD
~Constantly criticizing yourself
~Zero sense of a strong identity
~Clingy relationships even when toxic
~Unforgiving to yourself

Inner-child healing or work, is a crucial part of inner healing, while the Spiritual processes of evolving to become the person that you know you can still be today is a steady pace, full of self-realizations. The reconnection allows you to approach the fragmented parts of yourself to understand the root of your fears, insecurities, and self-defeating imbalances during your childhood.
GIVE NOTICE TO YOUR FEELINGS
Oftentimes, our environment as children reflects who we are and where we’re going in life. Even so, that in certain cultures to bring up healing of any form can begin to separate those people who care about you and your goals, or bring you closer to them. Not everyone is prepared to handle your healing process because it is meant for you only, and not for other people. Healing or inner work is sacred and should be reflected as such. In the long run, you will be a greater example of mankind in developmental growth.
Formulate a dialogue with your inner-child by expressing nurturing words, such as I love you, and I hear you. You can always recall what you loved doing when you were younger to balance out childhood wounds and forgive yourself for not being able to acknowledge them in your past.
