What The Heck Is “Inner Child” Work, Anyway? (Let’s Demystify It)

I was doing a podcast interview with a friend the other day, and the subject of doing inner child work came up.

He’s a very reasonable, practical, and successful business coach, and one of the things we were discussing was how the spiritual community makes things all mystical and ethereal, to the point that the knowledge becomes inaccessible to the general public and, to be frank, downright confusing.

Jokingly, he took a jab at inner child work and how it wasn’t clear how someone hugging their little boy/girl was going to help them get more clients or increase their income this year.

Let me tell you, I went passionate Italian-Brazilian Latina on him 😂.

Because actually? Your relationship with your inner child has everything to do with what kinds of clients you’ll attract and your ability to confidently raise your rates, to name some.

I went deep into explaining and simplifying this concept (check out my Instagram for the recorded live!) but that conversation inspired me to create an IGTV series called “Demystifying The Inner Work” because I’ve been noticing how many terms like inner child work, alignment, subconscious reprogramming, collapsing timelines, etc. get thrown around with little explanation as to what it actually means, why it’s important to YOU in your life and business, and how to apply the principles to create transformation in your life. 

Anyway, let’s get to it.

Inner child work: what the heck is it actually, and why is it important for you in your business?

I created a video to demystify this concept and how it’s affecting you in your day-to-day life, so you can be empowered to do something about it.

The spark notes are this:

It’s important to get curious about the gap between where you are now, and where you desire to be (i.e. your goals).

Here’s a few things to know about the subconscious mind:

👉 Approximately 95% of your thoughts are subconscious

👉 The subconscious mind has no concept of linear time (it only knows the present)

👉 We develop our critical filter (the ability to evaluate and accept or reject information before it passes onto the subconscious mind for long-term storage) at around the age of 7

This means that before 7, we were walking talking subconscious minds, absorbing the belief systems and habit patterns of our caretakers, culture, environment like thirsty sponges.

A significant chunk of who you are today and what you believe in has been shaped by your childhood conditioning.

Which is great for the habit patterns you’ve developed that serve you, but not so great for the ways that you’re holding yourself back or not believing in yourself because of what you learned as a child.

The short version:

You’re now an adult, likely still making important decisions in key areas of your life based off a 7-year old’s belief system 😅.

Can you see how that would be problematic for your business?…

and why working with your inner child is an important process to step into your adult sovereignty?

This is why the inner work is a key part of my programs. None of that fluffy stuff, though — one of my gifts is taking ethereal concepts and making them PRACTICAL so you can create tangible results in your life and business.

If you want to learn how to do this work on yourself so that you can set yourself free of past conditioning and create a brand and business that is authentically you, I’m currently enrolling for my Master Your Story mastermind (doors are now open!).

I teach you how to do the “inner work” so that you can quantum leap into your desired future and create the magnetic brand and business you’re here to transform lives with.

If you’re interested in applying, you can do so here so we can hop on an enrollment call or message me on Instagram if you have any questions.
