My therapist and I are working with Richard Schwartz’s ideas, developed over the last 20 years as Internal Family Systems. Instead of being able to deal with parts who can talk individually, I get flooded by parts who are desperate and terrified. I suspect that these parts are pre-verbal and so I have to “tune in” to what’s going on for them. It is very hard work just to be able to cook breakfast and walk the dog, and almost impossible to do things like call Toyota and make an appointment for a badly needed checkup for my car — which I did manage to do. I have not yet been able to make an eye appointment. Someone suggested I call Kirsten for help, but I haven’t even been able to do that. I have posted about a couple of parts, and also about rescuing babies, one from as long ago as 2016. Don’t even remember how I knew about that technique of soul-retrieval.
Here are some relevant earlier posts:
