The foundations of toxic masculinity are built on the crushed heart of the inner child.
When man and woman come together if there is any wounding that remains from childhood the inner child will soon let you know about it!!
I thought that my inner child was feeling pretty safe and content but he was not and he wreaked havoc with emotional tantrum after emotional tantrum as my beloved and I tried to come close. All this was fear-based. I don’t believe it was particularly toxic because I have a high level of self-awareness but I concur totally with MacKenzie’s words because without self-awareness the wound will be projected into the world and blame will be cast upon the partner when there is little or no clarity and understanding and one fails to take responsibility.
Inside each of us, there is a little boy and little girl. Just when I think that my inner child is at peace something else comes up for me to see and clear. Something from the deep arises when your childhood was a patchwork of trauma.
This has been happening of late and has triggered a recurring of physical symptoms that I suffered when I was a boy. The body brings my awareness to letting go of another old story, another old timeline to be dissolved with love and tenderness and vigilance. Letting go, letting go…surrendering; surrendering deeper and deeper. Softening more and more. Less external and therefore internal judgement. It is time for peace, for good health.
I bless the current situation that triggered the old wound that needed to be seen so that the light of consciousness could shine it’s light upon it, so that it may be released with love and compassion and forgiveness for all involved.
Yes, maybe the treatment we suffered was inexcusable but now it is time to find peace. Now is a new day, a new moment a new present is gifted.
Travel slow and listen to Life’s whispers because She will show you all that needs to fall away to reveal the Love and Light that you truly are.
When the inner child of a man and woman meet in peace and harmony and joy, then there will be a dance to behold unlike anything you could have imagined. Then divine union becomes inevitable.
