(((Antigua))),

> What you wrote appears to me to contradict what you have written elsewhere.

<<< I don't know how to address your concern over your understandings of what I posted.

> This implies that your mentor DID want the person to resolve their childhood trauma.

After the minutes of silence were the patients "cured?" Now that would be incredible and I would certainly go for it! Seriously.

<<< David practiced that the person does the healing so he would make every tool available to them for their quest. He was a master coach, I suppose. Overcoming the trauma was always couched as a process, not an event. Even the tears at the end of the [out of body guided imagery] wasn't the end. What the client took with them was a technique useful anytime circumstances conspired to high-jack the emotions. They are then guirded for warefare with their bad feelings, behaviors, and motives.

> Also, I am interested in your idea of the child growing up to be that person. For me, I don't want that child to grow up to be me, I want for the adult me to take the best parts of that child before she was damaged by the abuse and help her to grow into a better me today.

<<< Sounds like you feel your adult person is somehow bad. When you look in the mirror, do you see what I see, or do you see the damage? I submit that seeing the damage, is seeing a distortion, since that's not what the rest of see. Is that wise to continue down that road, assuming that you are wearing your damage when you aren't in the current tense? What benefit will that assumption be for you to continue? I'm OK if you see a benefit, just please share it with me.

<<< None of this is crossing-swords with you. I'm four-square on your side.
