We now have a Star in our system

At therapy today I had intentions of talking about the labyrinth and ended up having a new alter emerge. Totally different direction than I expected. My T told me that this alter is very young, perhaps 2 or 3, and was lost underneath the table at Grandma and Grandpa's house. She would hide under the table and hear the dice rolling on the table from the Yahtzee game the adults were playing and there was a lot of drinking going on. While under the table this alter would eat dog food and lap water out of the dog bowl. If the other dogs would come near the bowls she would growl at them. My T asked what her name was and she said "Retard" and m T told her that was not a nice name to have and maybe she could come up with a nicer one. Our T gave the alter a wand with water, sand and stars in it and it would shift when she turned it upside down. She liked he stars floating in the water and asked if her name could be Star. So now we have a Star in the system  This is now 27 insiders and Seraphim has heard chattering in the labyrinth so there are more waiting to emerge. This Therapist is so awesome! She is so good with the littles and can sense when there are new ones near the surface. I don't know whether or not to be happy, sad, frustrated or what. Just when I think I know everyone I get hit with a surprise alter. But I suppose it is a good sign that they are all emerging because then that means I am healing and dealing with parts of me that need to be healed.

  1. I believe they surface when they feel safe enough and believe you're ready to face what they have to share. I think that fits with your T and my experience with Debra. You have a good support system!
