What is a Child Soul Wound?

A soul wound is a physical, mental and/or spiritual wound caused by an incident that is so traumatic it cannot be processed consciously. The wounding trauma becomes buried in the subconscious mind and depletes a person of their life force energy. Childhood soul wounds keep a person stuck in time, can cause them to react out of fear and have power over decisions and choices a person makes unconsciously.

What I want to share with you is what you need to know about your subconscious mind and soul wounds to your inner child. A happy child which has grownup loved and well nourished will acquire few soul wounds. Children who suffer abuse, or misinterpret comments too literally, or witness a traumatic event can take on soul wounds. There are more ways a child can acquire a soul wound.

The traumatic nature of a soul wound takes a direct route to the subconscious mind to become encapsulated and stored to eventually be release when a person is better equipped to process them. It takes a tremendous amount of energy from everyday living to maintain a soul wound. The more soul wounds a person experiences the more energy they consume. Negative energy and emotions of a soul wound can become the driving factor in a persons life. Storing a soul wound is a wonder in that it protects a person from emotions and feelings that they are not capable of processing at the time of the wounding. What a beautiful mechanism for protecting a person.

A child will do one or two things when he experiences a soul wound. Energetically a part of the child will step out of his body out of fear. That part of the child often does not spontaneously return, resulting in energy loss for the child. Energy loss results in poor memory, stress, poor coordination, heightened emotional sensitivity, inability to focus and concentrate, and sometimes frustration and anger. The child as a result of the soul loss is operating on less than 100% energy functioning while he is trying to learn and grow. This diverted energy causes deficits in growing and learning. In extreme cases of abuse, soul wounds to a child can create distinct personalities that will absorb the trauma. 

Soul Wounds can also cause the one or more specific personalities to come forth and take control in triggering situations. We all have specific personalities within ourselves. I have the artist personality, writer personality, a “Stone” personality who can be tight with her money at the stupidest of times. Each of those personalities come forth depending on what activity I’m engaged in. A personality created in response to a soul wound has great intensity and feeling.

Adults who grow up carrying an inner child with soul wounds can have dysfunctional beliefs and actions that have great power over an adult’s life. The adult should cultivate a relationship with the inner child (or children) to address their fears, shame and/or anger in some manner. 

Ways to heal the inner child is to do a soul retrieval or soul healing in an “out of time state”. Why out of time state? Because the wounding was created in an “out of time state”. The subconscious mind doesn’t evaluate what it experiences as real or unreal but will adapt and accept according to what it experiences through the use of signs and symbols.

Hypnosis is a great tool for healing soul wounds. It is non invasive and the client has control over the experience. The signs and symbols used during hypnosis can easily release a soul wound and free up energy for the individual to use in their daily life.

As a consulting hypnotist we refer anyone with a mental diagnosis or who we suspect needs a mental diagnosis to the health care practitioner. We do not diagnose or treat mental illness.
