1. INNER CHILD MEDITATION FOR CODEPENDENCY
Meditating is one of the best ways you can connect with your inner child.

2. EFT TAPPING – LOVING YOUR INNER CHILD
Tapping, also known as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), is based on a combination of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology.
So basically, you use your fingertips to tap specific meridian points (or energy hot spots) on your body while speaking life-changing affirmations to help balance your body’s energy.
The first time I tried tapping for my wounder inner child, I cried out years worth of blocked emotions.
