    Inner Child Healing & Healthy Relationships

    Inner Child Healing & Healthy Relationships

    EPISODE 49   

    When we lack integration in our own identity, we do not have the power to love ourselves or others well. The work of interior integration helps us to love not only much but also love others well.

    In this episode I share how inner child healing helped grow my capacity to love others well:
    - Made me more self-aware of when I was using connection with others to avoid connecting with myself
    - Helped me to stop shape-shifting in relationships
    - Helped me learn to recognise where healthy boundaries are and act on them

    Loving Much vs Loving Well

    Loving Much vs Loving Well

    EPISODE 48

    Have you ever felt the frustration and bewilderment of why your love for someone pushes them away or why your beloved feels harmed by your best intentions?

    Loving Much ≠ Loving Well. We can love much and harm ourselves and others if we do not also learn how to love well.

    In this episode I share how loving well is something we simply cannot do unless we heal and integrate our core selves from the unconscious traumas we may have accumulated in our lives.

    Inner Child Reparenting: Healing My Relationship with God & Self

    Inner Child Reparenting: Healing My Relationship with God & Self

    EPISODE 47         

    Have you ever experienced a dissonance between knowing that you are loved and really FEELING that you are loved in your body? For the longest time I used to think there was something wrong with me because I couldn't really experience the love that I cognitively believed God loved me with.

    In this episode I share about why this dissonance existed and how inner child healing finally helped me to bridge that gap. Inner child work was the practical healing I didn't know I needed to help me experience God's love for me - and my love for myself - in an embodied way.

    How Inner Child Healing Transformed Me

    EPISODE 46 

    Just what kind of impact can healing your inner child make in your life? In this follow-up episode to the interview with Dr Jean Cheng, I share about three ways that inner child healing helped me increase my capacity for authenticity and integrity by:

    - Helping me to stop people-pleasing;
    - Helping me grow my moral courage to use my voice and stand by my choices calmly

Becoming Me

Ann’s honesty and sincerity in sharing her own past struggles echoed so much with my own life. She gave me the courage to start digging up my well manicured cemetery lawn of buried aspects of me and allowing Jesus to breathe life into them again. I’m becoming me, can’t find a better word for it. If you feel burnt out, directionless, overwhelmed or just want to give up, listen to Ann, her stories and down to earth manner will definitely speak to your heart.

Byteresalee ,

Helps me figure out where I was, am at, and where I need to be

These podcasts have accompanied me through a trying season in my life so it’s very timely. Grateful for this life-giving resource which teaches me how to dig deep and begin my own interior journey of authenticity. Still struggling and grappling, but I sincerely hope to grow and be better after doing the inner work. Life-changing podcast and I look forward to similar future digital products!

J0cedishappy ,
