‘Inside Out’ Movie ~ MUST WATCH!

The movie ‘Inside Out’ illustrates important issues regarding the relationship between childhood memories and programming, and ongoing mental health and wellbeing.

This movie will help you understand where chronic depression stems from (basically your dominant childhood emotion)..

It had me in tears and caught me off guard but not in a bad way, in an enlightened way.

A must watch ..

SG xInside Out (2015) Poster

Inside Out focuses on an 11-year-old girl named Riley.

Well, more specifically, it focuses on the little voices inside of Riley’s head. Those voices are her emotions — Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, and Disgust.

Like many kids, Riley’s dominant emotion is Joy.

She’s generally happy and, when she’s not, everything inside of her works to restore equilibrium and get back to that happy place.

When Riley’s family moves from Minnesota to San Francisco, her world is turned upside down and everything that makes her, well, her (her “Personality Islands” — being a goofball, being honest, loving hockey, caring about her friends and family) is challenged.

The Number One Cause Of Depression — Everywhere

Mood disorders are among the most common mental health problems experienced by children and adolescents. They include all types of depression as well as Bipolar Disorders (formerly called Manic-Depression) and are sometimes referred to as “affective disorders.” Children with mood disorders often are either depressed, manic (unrealistically “up” or hyper), or alternating between the two.

According to a group of researchers from around the world (including those from London and various regions in Spain), people who have suffered from abuse during their childhood are more likely to be diagnosed with clinical depression — and even more so if they are genetically predisposed to the condition.

Over a three-year period, scientists analyzed patients from 41 different health clinics in seven Spanish provinces who ranged in age from 18 to 75. And here’s what they discovered through genetic testing: The participants who were shown to have limited gene function implied in both BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor, a protein-coding gene) and serotonin transmission were extra-sensitive to the damaging effects of child abuse — whether the abuse was psychological, physical or sexual. In other words, this particular lack of gene activity mixed with an abusive history can result in an increased risk for suffering from depression.

Blanca Gutiérrez, a professor in the psychiatry department at the University of Granada and the lead coordinator of this study, says that these findings — which were recently published in the Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience — are significant in terms of treatment.

Healing the Wounded Child

As the wounded child heals, he learns to accept all people – even those whose behavior was evil towards him. He develops a greater understanding of others and for why they behave the way they do. This sets him free to forgive and to stop judging and to stop fixing.

Wisdom through suffering, acceptance, compassion and forgiveness heals the wounded child and from their own wisdom and experiences they can then go on to assist in the healing of other wounded children.

Love & baby steps,

The Wounded Child – Movies

Watching movies related to one of your archetypes, especially when going through the process of healing your shadow aspect is a powerful tool to help you understand yourself (your motivations, your passions, your fears – why you behave the way you do).
