    Except from    Your Inner Child of the Past

    by W. Hugh Missildine, M.D. published by Simon and Schuster New York 1963

                    "Once you were a child

                 That child still lives within
                     you  — influencing and interfering
                     in your adult life"

                        p. 13

                        WHO IS YOUR INNER CHILD OF THE PAST?

                        The Persisting Child of the Past

    Somewhere, sometime, you were a child. This is one of the great obvious, seemingly meaningless and forgotten common denominators of adult life. Yet the fact that you were once a child has an important bearing on your life today. In trying to be adults we mistakenly try to ignore our lives as children, discount our childhood and omit it in our considerations of ourselves and others. This is a basic cause of much adult distress and unhappiness. It is a way of mistreating ourselves.

                        p. 25

                        HOW THE CHILD OF THE PAST INFLUENCES ADULT LIFE

                        No One Outgrows His Feelings of Childhood

    No one outgrows or becomes too old to have an "inner child of the past." A few years ago when President Dwight D. Eisenhower announced a new record-breaking budget, newsmen promptly interviewed his older brother, Edgar, for his views. Edgar severely criticized the budget as inflationary. Next morning the President was asked what he thought of his brother's comments. According to The New York Times, the President, smiling broadly, said, "Edgar has been criticizing me since I was five years old." His remark, frank in its human quality and its implication that he had learned in childhood not to heed Edgar, drew laughter from the correspondents. It revealed one facet of the President's "child of the past"—the attitude of Edgar toward his younger brother and the attitude which young Dwight had developed to cope with Edgar's criticism. More than half a century later these attitudes were still functioning vigorously.

                God can restore us to peace and
                    sanity —
                    We need to put our trust in God
                    We need to realize His Might
                    We need to trust Him
                    We need to obey Him

                We need to be willing to trust God — really
                    trust God

                We need to really believe in His Might —
                We work on our relationship with God —

                Continuing to act in a self-destructive
                    manner will lead us deeper into
                    unhappiness, misery and isolation.

                We need God's help — we are to love others,
                    be grateful for what we have been given.

                We must be honest — We look at the truth
                    about ourselves and our lives —
                    We don't blame others — We want to
                    change destructive behavior patterns
                    that hurt ourselves, God and others —

                    We are not prideful seeing ourselves as perfect —
                we walk humbly, seeking to know our imperfections
                and grow in the spiritual life —

                In admitting the truth about our faults we are
                    set free — We have hope —
                    We trust God

                    We believe in God and His Might to heal us —
                        if we are willing to cooperate with
                        His grace and let Him remove our
                        defects of character -

                As children we learned how to be boys and girls
                    from our father and mother — they were
                    our role model —

                If a child is subjected to violence, anger acted
                    out at home — they learn this is a suitable way
                    to handle problems in human relationships —
                    Where others may learn in balanced loving
                    homes — how to give and take, love and be
                    loved —
                    other children may learn about these violent,
                        forceful ways from birth and they think
                        this violence is normal —

                There may be fights in the neighborhood —
                    fighting in communities — One who
                    enables another to act out rage and
                    violence, must control others who
                    do not want it through suppressing
                    their wishes and needs

                A violent person can be triggered easily —
                    or project anger on innocent others
                    for nothing —

                Children living in homes like this
                    violence are confused — they can
                    think it can be their fault and
                    store up guilt if the parent's
                    anger is blamed on them —

                Violent people have learned to control
                    others with their violence —
                    Women are not as strong — so it can
                    be used to control another weaker sex —

                Anger from these situations is acted out
                    on innocent others and very often
                    forced on them by the angry person
                    and the enabler who actually —
                    clears the way for them because of their own
                    fears of them and their own dysfunctional
                    upbringing

                Sometimes children become over responsible
                    for the unviolent spouse and in
                    protection of other siblings from the
                    angry or violent person —

                If anger or violence continues over a period
                    of time — these involved with the angry
                    person are robbed of life and must develop
                    survival behavior to deal with the angry
                    person

                    Like always being on guard —
                    Ready to fight in ways to protect oneself —

                Everyone suffers from this violent angry
                    behavior —

                Even if it is not acted out before some —

                Tension and anger affects the atmosphere and
                    it is not peaceful and loving —

                Children in abusive or violent homes are
                    taught to accept this behavior —

                Later when given the chance — they may force
                    others to put up with their violence
                    and control —

                Life is a roller coaster —

                    The angry person sets the pace —

                    The enabler sees they get away with it —
                        it can be because of fear of the guy's
                        anger — so they roll out the carpet
                        for them and tolerate anger and suppress
                        others from trying to stop it —

                The elephant in the living room —

                The merry-go-round called denial —

                This atmosphere makes for low self-esteem for all —

                Children suffer when parents hurt each other —
                Children are confused —

                When others in normal homes are learning
                    about life, loving relationships, peace —
                    children in these abusive homes
                    learn these destructive behaviors
                    for relating and settling conflict

                Children may want to protect a parent and
                    feel guilty when the abuse/anger
                    doesn't stop

                People from these families can develop
                    depression or low self-esteem

                There can be aggressive acting out of
                    anger by children later in life —

                There can be passive-aggressive behavior
                    where one acts passive, but may
                    subtly be abusing through
                    hidden ways —

                Some children when growing up or
                    grown will use alcohol, drugs,
                    other addicted forms to handle
                    the pain —

                We can choose other needy partners, other
                    partners who were abused —
                    and the cycle goes on — more
                    violent and angry homes

                An angry person will act out their anger —
                    anger is an energy — where one knows
                    love — we feel anger, this energy —
                    active in a person

                In some it takes little pressure to explode —
                    others start fights over nothing to vent
                        their anger

                    others provokes others in hidden
                        ways — passive-aggressive to
                        watch others act out their anger

                Children who learned anger — may use
                    anger on spouses, their children,
                    their friends etc.

                When a person is under stress — old patterned
                    behavior comes out

                There isn't like a violent/angry person
                    doesn't affect everyone
                    others become fearful, withdrawn,
                    irritable, aggressive - provoking —
                    or detached — the anger in a
                    system, family, community is
                    acted out — the whole family
                    suffers

                One under pressure can lie —

                One can be addicted to lying and secrets —
                    provoking and being punitive

                A person who is angry can lie — call
                    others things or say things they themselves
                    did that was wrong — projecting onto
                    others

                A person who does not know how to be
                    with others may start arguments,
                    provoking to get alone — they may
                    have so much anger they just
                    provoke others to act out their own anger
                    and get relief

                A person that can't relate can hurt others
                    so they can live their own uncommunicable
                    way — they can play games — in and
                    out games

                Children in homes are in the middle of
                    all this anger, manipulation and
                    confusion

                Dear Jesus, we ask for healing for all these
                    things we may have suffered as children —
                    We are called to love —
                    I know the Father's family is dysfunctional —
                    We pray for the priests, the Church and the world —

                We are to die to our imperfect ways and love others —
                    work in kindness — work in one mind
                    and one heart

                Jesus says: Come unto Me all who are burdened
                    and find rest for your soul —

                Jesus we beg for peace in our lives and
                    the human race

                Jesus be one with us

                Thank You God — I give You my whole
                    heart and soul

                Thank You for the gifts You have given me —
                Thank You for Your grace
                Thank You for my talents

                Help me to do Your work, Jesus.

                Jesus help us to be gentle — Thank You Jesus
                    for our Mother Mary

                Dear Holy Spirit fill me

                God cloth me with Your grace

                Jesus, My Lord, My God

                Children in abused homes suffer — they did
                    not usually get their love needs met —
                    they did not learn normal ways to relate
                        with others — including God —

                    There may be alcoholic or drug abuse by parents
                        used to numb their pain —

                    These children live on a roller coaster
                        an unpredictable life — Dysfunction
                        with a Capital D

                A person drinking or using, is in a cycle —
                    (1) drinking or using
                    (2) thinking about drinking or using
                    (3) having a hang over

                Anger can be passed down from generations
                    past — children can be taught to be angry —

                Children in these homes can be blamed
                    by sick parents and children grow
                    up with guilt — "maybe it was my fault
                    they think"

                    Alcoholic mothers teach little boys
                about women — this modeling hurts
                children's understanding of women,
                men and relationships —

                    A child of an alcoholic or addiction
                who should experience security —
                suffers great insecurity that lasts
                until they deal with this —

                    How does a child learn to have
                self-respect and feel good about
                themselves? How does a child
                learn not to fear, not to be anxious?
                Someone in a house like this can
                be very fearful and learns shouting,
                throwing is okay — if mom and dad do it.

                    Some parents throw things when they
                saw their parents do it — When adults
                throw things at another adult — they
                are using force to establish their rules —
                It's like saying

                    "You will put up with my behavior
                and put up with my control"

                Little children in these homes can be
                deprived of getting their needs met ie
                when they are sick —

                    The mother or father who never had
                their needs met probably deprives their
                children of many needs — Money
                may be spent on an addiction and
                children deprived of ample food
                and drink — This affects their
                health — mom or dad have money for
                their addiction — not for children's needs —
                Parents can make false promises they
                make when drinking or using and never
                keep up to their promise when sober —
                this teaches children not to trust —
                to be disappointed — they may act out
                on others —

                    In such homes where needs are not
                met — many children cannot express
                feelings — if they cry they may
                get spanked

                    The rule  Don't Talk
                                  Don't Trust
                                  Don't Feel

                    Is the rule of an addicted home —

                Children learn to love from their
                young home life — many may learn
                in these homes to punish those
                who treat them nice because
                of how they are treated by mom or dad
                not in a reliable way

                    Children in these homes may not
                know how to resolve conflict in
                relationships — So they must learn
                later on in life what some children
                learned as a toddler —

                    Life is full of problems
                We need to learn to resolve conflicts
                Laziness —

                These are a few abuses children
                may have to deal with to live
                fruitful - harmonious lives —
                There can be generational anger —
                There may be physical or emotional abuse —
                What were the safe places in your house —
                Was there tension in certain rooms
                Was life unpredictable
                Are you afraid to trust anyone —
                Do you have push - pull
                                    love - hate relationships

                If you trusted anyone did you
                    end up with anger,
                    hurt, abuse, unpredictability

                Were you always a nuisance
                                always wrong —

                Was mom and dad there for you? 

 

                over and over and over and over again

                (1) building tension — provoking accumulative
                                                stress accumulates

                (2) explosion — climax, violence
                                        physical, emotional

                (3) calm phase
                            I'm sorry
                            makes promises they don't keep
                            This lasts about 24-48 hours

                In advanced stages — constant abuse


                Emotional abuse
                    (1) attack self-esteem
                    (2) blame other
                    (3) excuse for violence
                    (4) has all the control

                In the calm phase or honeymoon
                    cycle — they say they do
                    nothing wrong
                    I love you

                Starts again

                Isolates friends and the failure

               

               

 

Give a gift that lasts.

July 31, 1994

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
