• Many of us still have a wounded child alive within us. Our wounds may have been caused by our father or our mother. Our father may have been wounded as a little boy, too. Because he did not know how to heal the wounds from his childhood, he has transmitted his wounds to us. If we do not know how to transform and heal the wounds in ourselves, we are going to transmit them to our children and grandchildren. This is why we have to go back to the wounded child in us, to help him or her heal.

    Your wounded child may represent several generations. Maybe your parents and grandparents had the same problem. If you generate the energy of mindfulness, understanding, and compassion for your wounded child, you will suffer much less.
