The Seer discusses the New Age tendency to emphasize the expression of only the Inner Child:
Because of the fulfilled feeling it gives to express a previously dormant subpersonality, one can easily become so dependent on expressing only one subpersonality, that it becomes over-emphasized at the cost of the other subpersonalities. But unexpressed subpersonalities become dysfunctional and distorted in their expression. To only express one, disrupts the support network of the entire inner family. With the majority of inner subpersonalities expressing dysfunctionally, the person becomes a needy, self-centered being. If only the inner child were to express, for instance, it creates a nameless fear within, because the responsibilities the other subpersonalities were supposed to take on, falls on the unprepared shoulders of a five-year-old (the age of the inner child). The information of the four subpersonalities is one of the greatest blessings we have received along our eternal journey. It is the key to inner peace and a self-fulfilled life of happiness.
