Thanks guys. You've helped me very much. Today, when I started having some sort of flashbacks, I felt overwhelmed and scared. I then thought of the little boy inside me and suddenly I became strong and protective towards him and the fear went away. The big me came out to protect the little me. This is new to me, but I've really got to check into this. Thanks again guys. You are the best!!

LW, this is such a major thing making this connection. And your last post above where you realize the need to protect the little guy emphasizes that all the more. I'm really glad for you for all this. Thanks for sharing it with us here.

I am so glad for you that you connected with your inner child. Take care of him, he needs you! I feel you will in time learn to Love that "little guy". You will never be alone again. You always have him to talk to, to hold, to relate to now that you are an adult.

my Experience,

My therapist suggested I get some pictures of myself as a child, and start journaling.(So my mom gave me some pictures on her last visit)

Still, I didn't know how to get in touch with this child, or what I wanted to say. I couldn't find a book on the subject, chiefly because I didn't know where to look.

I did read, Raising Cain (subtitled: protecting the emotional well being of boys), which was a good read.

The real breakthrough for me was when I found a cassette (on the garbage pile)
it was called, The Forgotten Child Within (subtitled: discovering,nuturing and Healing your Inner Self) By Louise Hay.

After listening to that..I had no problem tapping into the little guy.

Hey kid ego,

island
