Inner Child Healing ~ The Path to Empowerment, Inner Peace, and Freedom from the Past (aka A Formula for Spiritual Integration and Emotional Balance)

By Robert Burney

"It is necessary to own and honor the child who we were in order to Love the person we are. And the only way to do that is to own that child's experiences, honor that child's feelings, and release the emotional grief energy that we are still carrying around."
Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls by Robert Burney

Learn to Love your self. Easy to say, hard to do. Love is like faith, in that both are pretty meaningless as intellectual concepts. Love is a verb. Verbs are about action, behavior. Learning how to be more Loving to our self is the challenge.

The approach to healing detailed in this e-book is a formula that can help people learn to be more Loving to themselves. We learned how to relate to self, to life, and to other people in early childhood from people who were wounded in their childhoods. We have been reacting to the intellectual programming and emotional wounds of our childhood ever since then. In order to change our relationship with self and life, it is necessary to change the subconscious and conscious programming that is causing our relationship with self and life to be dysfunctional. In order to start having some peace within us, it is necessary to heal our emotional wounds and stop our minds from being our own worst enemy.

The approach to inner child/emotional healing shared herein is the missing piece - the missing perspective - of the puzzle of life that so many people have been seeking. It is a formula for integrating intellectual knowledge and spiritual Truth into one's emotional relationship with life. It is the key to learning how to be more Loving to your self - and to turning life into an adventure to be experienced instead of an ordeal of suffering to be endured.

Book Review by Sam Vaknin
Another great self-help book by Robert Burney, author of "Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls". I like Burney's lucid prose, compassionate yet practical healing recipes, and experience-driven approach.

Burney is no intellectual revolutionary. He adheres to the venerable (mostly psychodynamic) tradition of attributing most of our problems as adults to faulty "intellectual programming" and to emotional wounds inflicted on us during childhood. It follows that the solution is simple: get rid of both ...More
