Developing your meditation plays a central role in working with your inner child. Meditation in the sense of witnessing what is inside you. In witnessing you can learn to let go of your identification with your feelings, your thoughts and your emotions. You can discover that in essence you are neither of those. There is a space of peace and silence inside you, a place of knowing and trusting.
To practice this we use active meditations among others. These are meditations in which the body is actively involved. They have been developed specifically for the western person, because he often is too restless inside to sit still from the start. Often, we first need space for expressing our resistance and bottled up emotions. By making space for this we deepen the peace and quiet that follows.
