1. The description of “little Libby” was rather tear-jerking, especially after reading about your childhood fears and trauma. This does seem like a powerful exercise and I’m definitely going to try it out. I do feel that there dwells an unhealed little soul within myself. Sometimes, I really “act out” when I feel a tremor within. When people talk loudly, I yell even louder because I feel it “doing something” within me. My parents were divorced when I was 2 years old and my grandmother tells me that as a child, I’ve seen a lot of violence which I may not even remember now. I remember it vaguely and I think that has to do something with my anger issues. The inner child was quite wounded. Thank you so much for this post! I really needed this. Haven’t listened to the podcast yet but shall do so soon. Thanks again and sorry for the long comment. I want you to know that your post is of help to me. 🙏

    1. Thank you soooooo much for this! And no need to apologize for a long and thoughtful comment. I’m so happy to hear that this is helpful to you, I knew it would be to someone! I would LOVE to hear how the exercise goes for you. It’s true it’s soooo powerful and healing and happens so fast actually, it can be really gentle, even if it’s doing deep healing. Thank u again and keep me posted 🌺🌺🌺❤️❤️❤️🌺🌺🌺

  2. It is crazy how I identified traumas from my normal childhood – once I moved away from home. So many insecurities, trust issues, self belief issues – stemming from a seemingly normal childhood.
    This exercise sounds very intimidating and I am SO scared to talk to childhood me – so much unhealed trauma. But I’m definitely going to try this exercise.
    Thanks for this post – so helpful for so many adults – going through life not knowing how to heal their childhood hurt.

    1. Thanks Moksha, it’s crazy right? No matter how nice our child seems there’s always stuff underneath I think. I know it seems scary, no pressure! Remember u can exit the meditation and any time and come back when you’re ready ❤️ I’m soooo interested to hear how it goes, keep me posted! xo

  3. That sweet pic of you is heartbreaking knowing what you and your sister must have gone through. I love that you’re putting this out there and loved getting to see a deeper part of you. We have similar stories, my dad was also an alcoholic and often when he came home it was my young sisters and I that had to get him from one spot to another or help him with his shoes.

    Such an interesting exercise to see yourself as a completely separate human than your inner child and recognize all the your inner child must have felt, had to deal with and find healing through that. Thanks for sharing, Libby. Takes courage!

    1. Thank you so much for this beautiful comment 🌺 And for sharing a bit of your story as well, that really means a lot. I know the pic is soooo sweet, it’s crazy what we survive as children, and to overcome ANY of that mess and achieve any amount of happiness from all that darkness, is nothing short of a miracle I think! Thank u always for reading and supporting 😊
