Hands on Tarot
Connecting With Your Inner Child
Show Notes

Your inner child is a part of your subconscious that has been picking up messages way before it was able to fully process what was going on (mentally and emotionally). It holds emotions, memories and beliefs from the past as well as hopes and dreams for the future.  It consists of what a person learned and experienced in the earliest years of their lives (birth to age 8 or 9). While for some this is a happy and exciting time, for others this can be quite the opposite.  Our inner child holds onto memories of our childhoods which include times of learning, comfort, and processing information before our brains were developed enough to understand. .  When we connect to our inner child, we are inviting joy, hope and play so they come out of hiding.  We make ourselves vulnerable and this welcomes healing.   Using tarot is a perfect way to connect with your inner child because it speaks to us in images and symbols and by doing so it bypasses our conscious mind and can get to the root of emotions, memories and trauma.
