FIREDANCE: Healing the Inner Child

Steven Barnes
2 min readNov 8, 2023

I totally violated my relationship with my “child” back in the 1980s. Ask me about “Friday the 13th” sometime, or “Purple Heart.” Another time.

But the point is that due to a poor decision I was cut off from the child aspect.

This manifested as disruptions of

1)Joy

  1. Creativity
  2. Energy
  3. Confidence
  4. Motivation
  5. Sense of personal integrity

And more. It hurts just to discuss it. And once I decided on a healing strategy, I used a specific visualization for 30–60 minutes for an entire year. I’ll be at Orycon this weekend, but WILL stop whatever else I’m doing at 12 Pacific to do FIREDANCE. Please join us, and we’ll continue creating the healthiest “internal family” imaginable.

Some of you have heard this story before, this technique before. Just remember: Repetition is the Mother of Mastery.
