Sometimes, clients come in and say I would like to cut that crazy part out of me. I don't want to remember that trauma. I hate my brother and I will simply lock him out of my life. Usually, they have already tried doing something like that and it does not work.....
So then, what do we do when we wake up with our angry cousin's voice inside of us? So instead of ignoring the communication from the unconscious,we listen to it. So if we dream about that cousin, then we take the time to ask what he is trying to communicate? We take a moment and remember why the memory is important for us.
What if the cousin's anger is a reminder that we don't have to say yes all of the time.
What if your mother in law's sweet voice is reminding us that sometimes we can be happy to just be alive?
What if the disappointed voice of your father is a memory that we need to be kinder to our own children?
If we look at the parts or voices as memories of what we have forgotten to change than we can begin to let go of the crazy and create lasting health. We are really not the victims that we think we are.
