hi Chess,
I agree with you about the best reassurance coming from within. It's interesting though, but some people seem to really derive a calming influence from an item or talisman of some kind - for example, a picture of their T, or a special rock, or a stuffed doll/animal. My guess is that they're starting to internalize the comfort that came first from another, and the object acts as a "bridge" to help them make the transition.

But I think that if one tries to rely on that "bridge" item forever, it will eventually lose the power unless the person is able to internalize the comfort.

What do you think? Do you ever use a rabbit's foot or other thing like that?
