Chapter 11. Why Do We Need to Correct Inner Child
You see commentators on the news claim, “You, authorities, should apologize to victims,” or “You should pay more compensation money to victims.” This indicates that they believe things happened beyond their control and there must be somebody else to blame. Those people think that the act of blaming means justice.
In the world where thoughts create reality, there is no blaming game. There is nothing for which one can blame somebody else. Without understanding this law, people end up having a sense of victimization and blaming others as if that constitutes justice. This victim mentality is Inner Child. Yet, those commentators on the news have social status, and they are well-educated. Most people perceive the commentators’ remarks as rational and acceptable, so we interpret these remarks incorrectly as thoughts of Adult Self, instead of deeming it as thoughts of Inner Child. Still, we, Fractal psychologists, do not do it. Why do we deem these blaming thoughts as Inner Child?
As we learned from Lesson 3 (page 8), what the surface conscious experiences presently is the reality created out of the deep conscious. In order to change the current reality, you must modify and reeducate your deep conscious, especially the old part of it which has very limited and unintelligent viewpoints. Because of this “limited and unintelligent” inclination, we call it “Child.”
We all have this part in our deep conscious, so we call it Inner Child.
Visualizing yourself as a child has another effect. The law of “Thoughts Create Reality” can be explained physically as follows: Thoughts as water vapor turn into emotions as liquid water, and they form reality as ice. Therefore, you must go back at least to the stage of liquid water in order to change the ice. Since water means emotions in this case, you need to access the emotional part of the brain that is called the cerebral limbic system, which you used in your childhood. In order to do this, you need to imagine that you are a child, and feel the old emotions as much as possible. It allows the ice to remold into a new shape. Thus, your reality changes accordingly.
This process is also useful when one wants to develop a new ability. If the surface conscious is likened to leaves of a tree, the deep conscious is likened to its root. We can expect the tree to grow taller and faster when we give nutrients to the root of the tree, not to the leaves. The root is the old mind, called “Inner Child.”
As shown above, it is an effective method to visualize Inner Child in order to modify the old deep conscious and to develop new abilities.
