A ‘Shack’ Experience
I was overseas and travelled to the home where a client lived and I hired a small cottage where the counseling took place. She arrived with two friends for support. She was a fully-dissociative client.
That means that when I asked the dissociative parts (alters) to come to the front of her mind, the person was no longer aware of what was happening. The part completely takes over the functioning of the person. When I interact with each of these parts, it is just like interacting with a completely different person. For example, a fully dissociative person with 100 parts will have 100 distinct personalities, each with its own name, sex (male or female), opinions, etc. Each part ‘dresses’ differently, each looks different from the next, they are different ages, have different likes and dislikes and function differently in the life of the client. All completely distinct and different from the client herself.
I usually begin by asking the client to read some prayers first. She couldn’t. The whole page was completely blank and it always had been whenever she had to read the Bible or read any prayer. I asked the dissociative part that was making the page go blank to come forward. It did. I introduced the part Jesus but it could not see Jesus. I then asked to speak to the part in charge of blocking visual images of Jesus. The part came forward. It is common when dealing with the highly dissociative parts that come forward for there to be a lot of resistance. This was the case here and it took quite some time to persuade the parts to cooperate.
However, I have a powerful aid at my disposal that makes the process go quicker: angels. Fully dissociative parts can see angels and other spiritual beings, such as Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit, demons and astral travellers easily. I can’t see them but they can. Whenever I ask Jesus to send angels into the room he always does and this was no exception. The whole room is filled with angels. The parts are very impressed with these helpers of mine. They are always male, tall, muscular but not intimidating. Very kind and they smile a lot. I asked this part to describe the angels. It said, reluctantly, “Very buff… and friendly…but why are they smiling so much, there is nothing to smile about?”
Eventually the part agreed to stop blocking the client and all the other parts from seeing Jesus. It receded and I returned to the part that was making the pages go blank. Now it could see Jesus but couldn’t hear what he was saying. I asked for any new part to come forward that affected the client’s ( and the part’s) ability to hear the truth and part came forward. After some persuasion and the presence of the angels, this part agreed to no longer block the client’s hearing.
I called back the part that was blanking the pages of the Bible and other truth. Now it could see and hear Jesus and it was surprised that Jesus said that how much he appreciated the part and how much he loved the client. Jesus said the part didn’t have to blank the truth anymore. The part agreed that it wouldn’t do that. Whew!
Now I asked the part to recede and for the client to come back. I asked the client to read the prayer and for the first time in her life she could see and read the words, and the Bible as well! Hallelujah!
I asked the client whether she could see and hear Jesus and, again, for the first time she had a very clear image of Jesus standing in the room and she could hear the words of affirmation he was speaking to her.
Now we were starting to cook with gas! Soon more and more parts decided that they wanted to meet Jesus. It is important to state that almost all the parts believed that the kingdom of darkness was more powerful than the kingdom of light. That is why they were reluctant to engage with me. The reason the parts hold this belief is because the client was physically taken, in dissociative state, to satanic rituals throughout her life, without her knowledge of any of these events, and these parts were formed in these satanic rituals. They had watched the client go to church and believed that if singing and talking in the church service was the best the Kingdom of Light could do, it was nothing compared to the spectacular supernatural things the parts saw happen in coven rituals. They believed demons were more powerful than Jesus and his angels.
As they saw how big and powerful the angels were and as they watched me bind and remove the demons, they soon began to see that our kingdom was far more powerful than the kingdom of darkness and they felt cheated that they had been lied to by the demons all this time.
The process of the healing for the client requires the client to see what happened to her in these rituals and feel the pain, physical and emotional, of what was inflicted on her in those rituals. When the client sees that Jesus was there at the time and helping her cope in amazing ways, the loneliness, pain and rejection experienced in the ritual is simply lifted off. To confirm that the memories of the rituals the client is experiencing are real, she feels the physical pain in her body, right here, right now of what she sees happening in the ritual, even if that ritual happened when she was 6 years old. It is important that she feels the pain in the present moment of what was a historical event because it breaks denial, which understandably can be quite strong, and it releases locked up energy in her body which would come out in other ways, through aches and pains, if it is not released when she sees the memory.
The parts were watching carefully and were really surprised that Jesus was there. When they see how compassionate and kind he is, they realize that the demons were lying to them when they told them that Jesus was horrible and not to be trusted at all.
