Welcome to the Akashic musings podcast. My name is Laura Mazzotta and I will be your guide during the sacred experience. I'm an Akashic healer and teacher, and I've also been a therapist for almost 20 years. This podcast is your go to opportunity for all things healing, inspiration and Empowerment. I will be sharing potent wisdom from divine intelligence in the space of the Akashic Records. For more understanding of what the Akashic Records are, I encourage you to listen to episode one, or head over to my website at www.theakashictherapist.com. I'm so grateful to have you here, receiving the powerful energetic shifts that radiate through these messages. Just by listening in you're doing your part to raise the vibration of the planet, and fully realize our natural state of wellness and vitality. Without further ado, here's today's episode.
Welcome back to the Akashic musings podcast, today, we're going to be talking about the inner child, the inner child is a buzzword that's been going around for a number of years now. And I want to clarify what the inner child is and the purpose that it serves, and why it's so important in our healing process, especially if you've had a history of trauma. The inner child is an energetic version of us, basically, carrying a lot of the core essence of us. And it exists in our sacral chakra, which is right around our belly button a little lower than our belly button in our womb space. And this is the part of you energetically that carries the codes and the blueprints from your soul from previous lifetimes from ancestry, it carries your wounds from this lifetime and previous lifetimes. And it's also a very playful, raw, authentic version of who you are. So getting in touch with getting to know and developing a relationship with your inner child is such an important component to your healing journey. Because it allows you to get to a level of intimacy with yourself. That's just really raw. Without any of that conditioning or all of the rules. It's a way for you to get in touch with who am I actually, what do I truly value and what do i root myself, and how do I define myself. So connecting to the inner child is typically done through a meditation. Once you're accustomed to connecting with your inner child, you can do it in a hot second, you can snap your fingers, place your hand on your lower belly, and be there in a hot second. Just like with any other relationship that we're cultivating in our lives, it can take some time. And it can take some conversation, to get to know how this other person communicates, how they operate, what their energy is like, and what how you are meant to be in collaboration with them. So the same thing goes with your inner child. So to connect to your inner child, it's really about taking on a re parenting stance. If you have followed the holistic psychologist at all, she talks a lot about re parenting. And re parenting is a brilliant way for us to recover from trauma and a brilliant way for us to access our sovereignty. Because what we're doing is we're allowing ourselves to realize we are not attached to our human parents, we are not placing blame or responsibility on them for us becoming who we're meant to become, for us to be as happy and vital and well as we desire to be. We're taking that on ourselves. And that requires that we serve many roles for ourselves. We don't look outside of us for those things to stabilize us. Yes, we need collaboration with other people. And yes, it benefits us to receive things from others. That's what we're meant to do here. But we want to make sure that our core foundation is solid first and foremost, because at the end of the day, that's what we're left with. At the end of this lifetime is ourselves. We come into this earth by ourselves, we leave this earth by ourselves. So when we connect to our inner child, we start with a meditative experience. So if you
Driving right now or at work or doing something else, return to this later when you can connect to this meditation. And then what I'm going to do is give you some prompts that you can write down. And there's always going to be a transcription of these episodes on my website as well at the Akashic therapist.com, just click on the podcast tab, and you'll be able to see the transcriptions for each of the episodes of this podcast. So then I'm going to give you some prompts, so that you can write down different statements and questions to connect more deeply with your inner child if you're not sure how to navigate this conversation. So this begins with placing your hand on your lower belly, placing your feet on the floor, closing your eyes, and taking a nice deep breath in.
And slowly release.
Now I want you to breathe deeply into your lower abdomen, into that womb space. Allow yourself to fill this space completely and hold.
And now breathing a little bit more to fill to its fullest capacity and hold.
And when you release, allow your body to feel relaxed, let your shoulders fall back and down. Loosen your jaw, allow your tongue to hang in the base of your mouth.
Allow your head to feel heavy, your arms and legs to feel heavy
as you're supported by the space in which you're sitting.
And just continue to breathe slowly and deeply at a pace that's comfortable for you.
And just bring your attention to that womb space. Bring your attention to that tiny version of you that tiny energetic version of you that exists within this womb space that's been waiting for you to connect with it.
And as you connect to the energy of your inner child, get an idea of what it wants to do. Sometimes it wants to stretch sometimes it wants to get up and out and say Dude, I'm out of here, I'm sick of being in here. Sometimes it wants to play sometimes it wants to vent and cry, sometimes it wants to be held just witness and observe it for a brief moment.
And as you connect to the energy of your inner child,
I want you to jot down or just allow it to come forward.
What is the first thing that comes to mind was the first feeling you have your first sentiment towards your inner child, it could be you're so beautiful. I love you so much. I'm so excited to connect with you. It's been so long.
Whatever feels natural, allow me to come forward.
And then when you're ready, if you haven't done so already open your eyes. And you can start to jot down some of these prompts. So prompt number one is thank you for
and just fill in that sentence thank you for and you can listen to this until the ends of the earth. And I'm going to give you some examples here.
You can thank your inner child for its service to you. Like thank you for speaking to me and connecting with me. Thank you for loving me so much to desire my attention. Thank you for being patient and resilient. Thank you for carrying all of this energy, all of these wounds for me. Thank you for expressing yourself to me.
So you're thanking your inner child for its role, because it holds a very, very vital role in our development.
And the second prompt is you are and you just fill in the blanks, right for as as long as you'd like. You're listing your reflections as you witness your inner child. So you could write, you're so strong,
you're feisty, you're spunky, and you don't give a shit what other people think.
You only care to play and feel free.
You're so much fun.
So you're just going to list what you witness and allow your inner child to be seen.
And at this point, your inner child may want to speak.
So give it space to say and do whatever it needs. Offering that space and attention is sometimes all it needs. Sometimes you don't have to go through this whole journaling process.
Just opening up the opportunity to connect is sometimes all it takes
And the third prompt is, it's okay for you to
it's okay for you to, and you're going to fill in the blanks there as much as you'd like. So this is where does your inner child feel restricted in expression or inaction.
You can say things like, it's okay for you to come out now. It's okay for you to be to be demonstrative.
It's okay for you to be bold. It's okay for you to be loud.
It's okay for you to be playful and free.
And now you're going to turn it around. This is prompt number four.
Let your inner child tell you that it's okay to.
And you may list some of the things that you wrote above four, what you gave permission to your inner child to do.
But just allow your inner child to speak what it's okay for you to do, to say, to embody to feel to be.
And then the fifth prompt is I promised to
what do you promise your inner child that you're going to do going forward?
Again, you can make a list as long as you'd like. And some examples are I promise to play with you.
I promise to prioritize excitement and celebration.
I promise to prioritize joy.
I promise to connect with you weekly, or daily.
And something that may help with this, this prompt number six, which is what do you need from me?
What is it that you need from me.
And you may want to weave some of those answers into what you're promising, whatever feels, align whatever it feels like you're available for.
And then you can finish this up.
By asking your inner child how you can ensure that you remain connected. So that this connection continues to be cultivated continues to strengthen continues to heal you and give both of you information to become the highest version of yourself. So you're going to ask how you can ensure that you remain connected?
And then finally, you ask Where would you like to go from here.
Your inner child might want to hang out with you for a while, spend the day with you, your inner child might want to snuggle back in and say alright, dude, I'm done, I'm tired. Your inner child might say, hey, I want to play a little bit. But then I want to go back in and your inner child might want to chat a little bit longer, or go out on on its own and get away from everybody entirely. So just giving it choice, because a lot of us, especially with a history of trauma did not have choice. So it's very freeing to be able to give your inner child the ability to choose. So you're going to do that here. Where would you like to go from here.
And then you're going to take a deep breath into your lower abdomen, expanding it more and more with each sip in
and you're going to release and relax.
I'm actually going to link a reel that I did on Instagram in the comments of this podcast.
And this is an inner child dyad that I think is absolutely brilliant. I use it all the time. I literally just used it a couple of days ago. It's massively effective. And dyads are something you can do with any relationship in your life and even with yourself. But this reel is specifically bringing it forward to have a chat with your inner child. And it gives you another narrative and another way of communicating and exchanging information and getting to even deeper awareness of what's coming forward from your inner child. So I'm going to link that here, you can click over to my Instagram, and use that as a healing tool as well. And just allow yourself to be guided through it as well. Sometimes that's helpful to just see someone guide you through it. But I would love to know any takeaways that come from this episode. And any experiences that you have had with your inner child that have been really revelatory for you. And really life changing. This work is beautiful. And it doesn't have to be heavy. It doesn't have to be super deep either. Sometimes it can just be a connection. When I connected to my inner child the other day it was really about stop being so freakin serious. Like let's just play, bring more fun, bring more creativity, bring more play into your life, into your business into your world into your relationships. And sometimes that's all we need. So this doesn't you don't necessarily have to go through all
Have these processes and journal prompts feel into what feels right for you. But this is just a scaffolding for you to get started. And a narrative that you can use to start understanding how your inner child operates and how that relationship works. And then once you learn that you're going to communicate in your own way. And I would love for you to share that with me. Take a screenshot of this episode posted on your story for Facebook or Instagram and tag me at emerge healing & wellness so that I can share the love and celebrate that we're in this together. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you on the next episode of the Akashic musings podcast.
