Publisher's Summary

Most people don't realize how much unresolved emotional pain they carry around. They don't know why they always feel depressed, anxious, victimized, or disappointed. They wonder why they keep making the same self-sabotaging impulsive decisions.

These patterns often stem from their lost inner child, which carries a false narrative that has been on repeat since childhood. The hurt emotions resulting from childhood experiences of abuse, neglect, or trauma show up in adulthood as explosive anger, isolation, bad relationship choices, negative self-talk, feelings of being overwhelmed, being a people pleaser, and keeping others at arm's length.

In Healing Your Lost Inner Child, Psychotherapist and Reiki master Robert Jackman takes you on a personal journey to explore unresolved wounds from your early life using the HEAL process for healing and embracing an authentic life. Through stories and exercises, this easy-to-understand book will encourage you to learn how to stop giving in to your wounded inner child's emotional pain frozen inside a snow globe within you. Each chapter gently takes you closer to this original wounding, so you can acknowledge and finally heal your pain. Move from being an impulsive reactor to an authentic, conscious creator in your life.

The Healing Your Lost Inner Child Companion Workbook is also available to help you develop a deeper understanding of your relationships, codependency patterns and triggers, and create a self-nurturing plan.

Excellent book for healing your inner child

I can't recommend this book highly enough! it has been life-changing for me. no other book that I have read has come close to identifying the core issues that I've been living with my entire life. that being my wounded inner child. I never realized how I carried the pain from my childhood into adulthood and how it manifests in everything from poor career choices to failed relationships. I'm 65 and I feel like I've been given a new lease on life. no matter what happens from here on in, I at least have a fighting chance to live authentically and make the choices that work for me! thank you Dr Jackman!

very helpful

I wanted to listen first and it was inspiring! I will be picking up the actual work book and redoing this. I think that the comfort of hearing the audio version made it easier to take in for the emotional work ahead.

I already want to listen to the book again.

One of the best books I've listened to as far as far as for Self Help and trying to I'm to rule out the problems that causes us to behave in ways that are unbecoming and take away from our relationships with our loved ones and friends I see myself gaining a lot from this book and from the stories. I recommend this book to anyone who has gone through childhood trauma or has friends who are dealing with trauma within their life to listen to this book and to utilize it in order to gain an understanding of what is going on with themselves or their friend and then refer the friend to read or listen to the book.

Amazing book to heal your inner child

There was some resistance im not gonna front. But this book really helped me see how my younger child wounds showed up in my adult life and ways I can begin the process of letting her know it’s okay and we are okay. I’ll definitely be ready a second time!

Life changing

If you’re ready (because you have to be) this book will absolutely crack your brain open. It’s exhausting work if you do it right, so make sure to clear your schedule for a few days to do this intensive self work book.

Deep reflective book

I found the book at the perfect time. After listening to the audio book i bought a hard copy and the accompanying workbook. This enabled me to take myself on an incredible journey. Love the prompts ans starting points for your own reflection. Thank you!

Easy to follow and insightful

The information was easy to follow and not technical. The exercises are useful in getting to know yourself better and understand why you react to certain things the way you do. I’ve ordered the hard copy to have as an easy reference and the work book to go with it. We all have a wounded inner child and this book helps you to help yourself. Definitely recommended.
