Who’s in There, Anyway?

By Sarah Biermann

The human psyche is a complex, fascinating and sometimes, confusing thing.  The true Self is the natural leader of your inner world and is a very good leader.  It is mature, compassionate, loving and curious.  Unfortunately, it is surrounded by a crowd of hurt parts from the past, as well as the protector parts that do their best to keep you from feeling the negative emotions in the hurt part.  Other parts are trying to protect you from potentially painful actions.

Example: Your father would hit you if your raised your voice.  A part of you makes sure that you keep your voice low so you don’t get hit.  Since the protector was created when you were a child, it is not as sophisticated as an adult and you end up being afraid to express anger with anyone.

Your unconscious mind holds beliefs and emotions that the conscious mind is not aware of or able to control or change.  Most of these beliefs were developed or learned in childhood, often a hurtful, powerless time of life.  Since the unconscious mind communicates through images, emotions and physical sensations, you must use that language to understand and “talk” to it.  The unconscious inner parts are just like any other entity.  They seek to be seen, heard and understood.  To “get gotten”.  Below is a fictional representation of how the inner parts operate and what you can do to help them to heal from the past traumas, function as adults and be an asset instead of a liability.

When Susie was a little girl she was harshly teased by schoolmates.  Her family had moved from across the country and Susie had a distinct and different accent.  The other kids would mock her every time she talked.  She felt humiliated and powerless to change the situation.  She developed a strategy of being generally quiet and making sure she would never “stand out”.

As an adult she occasionally needs to give a verbal presentation to a group of people as part of her job.  For days in advance she is anxious to the point of distraction.  During her presentation, she is  panicky, in a cold sweat, stuttering and blushing.  Afterward she “beats herself up” for being unable to do something “so simple”.  The experiences are traumatizing AND it is negatively affecting her job.  She knew she had to do something to change this.

During her session, she told me she had always been shy and anxious around people, but she didn’t remember most of two or three years of her childhood.  She was also embarrassed to tell me about the problem.  Her inner world was inhabited by a seven-year-old girl who was sitting on the floor, arms wrapped around her legs, face tucked down and rocking slowly.  Standing over her was a scowling woman, hands on hips and intently on the look-out for strangers.  It was her job to guard the girl and make sure the girl stayed quiet, especially in front of others.  There was another part that was very angry with the girl and berated her, “Stand up!  Talk to me.  Why do you alway hide?  You are so stupid… just talk!”

Susie was aware of this critical, judgmental part.  The critic showed herself rather frequently.  The guard part prevented Susie from accessing the girl.  Susie was not even aware of the guard or the girl.  Both the critic and the guard needed to be listened to and be “gotten” before they trusted Susie’s Self enough to let her approach the girl.  Talking to them from a non-judgmental and truly curious place allowed them to express their opinions and how they felt. When she was given permission (never try to force this, they will just fight back harder), Susie sat down next to the girl.  The girl was apprehensive about talking, but Susie’s Self was not at all judgmental or pressuring her, and was truly curious.

One thing I love about this process is that the hidden part can hold the memories of the events that caused you the problem.  Once you contact the hidden part, you get the memories back.  Susie was quite surprised when she suddenly remembered the lost years.

“How could I have forgotten all that?”

Susie felt a surge of love for the girl.  It was the critic part that was angry at her.  Susie told the girl that she loved her, that it wasn’t her fault and that she loved her accent.  Both Susie and the girl cried tears of joy as Susie hugged the girl.  Then came some giggles.

The last step is to bring the, now unstuck, part into the here and now.  She wasn’t really in the past, but she believed that she was.  Over the next few weeks, Susie spent time with the girl, reinforcing her safety and lovability.

The guard and the critic changed too.

The next time Susie had to make a presentation, she was a little nervous, but could  assure the girl that her Self would protect the girl.  She also had her supportive, new nanny (the transformed guard) to be with her.  At one point the, much gentler, critic came out.  Susie’s Self listened to her concerns without judgment, and helped her to understand that criticizing was not actually helping and was, instead, making it harder.

The presentation wasn’t “perfect”, but there wasn’t the traumatic emotional “bomb” like before and Susie was confident that it would only get easier.

The human psyche is indeed a fascinating and complex thing, but it doesn’t have to be confusing.  Even though the whole process was “all in Susie’s head”, just imagination, it made a huge difference in her out world.  The other benefit isß she understands her inner world and has tools to navigate therein, making it easier to transform any other inner parts if and when they show up.

To forgive is to let go of blame and release the negative feelings from within yourself.  Forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself more than to the other (unless the one you need to forgive is yourself – then it is a double gift!)  This doesn’t mean that you forget.  You remember, but the memory is no longer charged with hurt, anger or resentment.

Example:  My father was passive aggressive and very athletic.  Over and over he would promise to be kind (to hold the bike, to hit the tennis ball gently, etc.) and every time I would end up hurt and scared while he laughed or feigned innocence, “I thought you could hit the ball. ” or “I thought you could turn the bike” (he laughed from 20 feet away since he had let go of the bike and I crashed into a fence ).  When I was seven he convinced me to sit in his lap as he was driving on the freeway so I could hold the steering wheel.  Yes, I was scared, especially when he drew closer and closer to the car in front of us.  As always, I ended in frightened and humiliated tears,  “Daddy, why are you getting so close?!”  He laughed and replied,” I wanted to see if you would change into the other lane.”  That was my dad.

I had lots of therapy, even a few sessions with my father, and chose to forgive him because I still loved him.  I never allowed him a minute alone with my children, however.  That is not quite accurate.  When my first born was just old enough to sit up we played a game sitting on the grass rolling a big soft ball back and forth.  My dad took a turn and gently rolled the ball, over and over.  The telephone rang in my house.  I could see through the window from where the phone was attached to the wall, so I took a couple of steps into the house, grabbed the phone and turned to see my father toss the ball firmly into my sons face, knocking him over and leaving him in tears.  “Sorry” he said, “I thought he would catch it.”

My father had some really wonderful parts to his personality.  He had a wicked sense of humor, could barbecue like a pro and was a great dancer.  I had more than just forgiveness for him, I had compassion and love too.

Compassion is going beyond the point of view that someone did something bad, but you are willing to let it go.  True compassion is beyond the polarity of good and bad to the place of understanding that people are not “perfect”.  It is not possible to be perfect.  I know why my dad acted like he did.  I know enough of his childhood horrors to realize that he was being the best person he could be.  I know he tried to be a better man his whole life.  So really, there was nothing to forgive.  I also trusted my father.  I trusted that he would be himself and would do something mean any time I turned my back. So I never let him alone with my children.

The Breaking Free from the Earth Game Teleseminar audio recording is now available.

This is a super powerful teleseminar. I was working with a huge group of Beings to clear as much old limitations as possible and to bring in the New Energy. I think we kicked a few butts (in a good way)!

“I thoroughly enjoyed your seminar on Sunday….I think I was teary eyed through the entire thing….not sure why, but it seemed to resonate with me so much….can’t explain even to myself. I suppose I really needed to hear what you had to say. Thanks again for a wonderful seminar. It was perfect….I love your style of work.” Janet Keith

What’s up with this reality anyway???

Does the world seem crazy to you?

Are the “normal” people just nuts?

It seems that a lot of us “first wavers” are experiencing some intense emotional stuff. I mentioned in an earlier email that I cried more in one week than I had in over a year. So many people have told me that they are having what could be described as depression. It’s a feeling like you can’t stand living in this reality anymore.

I’ve heard things like:

If it’s going to be like this the rest of my life, then I don’t want to be here anymore.

When is it ever really going to get better?

When do I get to feel like I fit in or that I am understood?

Why are people so crazy/ messed up/ impossible to be around?

I’m still feeling bad (hopeless, less than [shame], unfulfilled, not appreciated, etc.).

I feel like I’m all alone, surrounded by people who want to make me feel stupid, wrong and/or not good enough.

I can’t make it work....

When I looked into the core dynamic causing this sadness and despair what I got is that we are really, really needing to completely let go of the Old Reality. It’s about surrendering, once again.

Surrendering doesn’t mean losing, it means giving up. There is a big difference between the two, though we tend to think it is the same thing.

Historically, we see the picture of surrender as the king who loses the battle and loses his sovereignty. It was the ultimate humiliation and failure. Most of us feel this way about the idea of surrendering. But in the spiritual sense it means something else. It means letting go of the human/Old Reality way of trying to stay in control.

All our efforts of trying to control things, from the Old Reality point of view, are all strategies to avoid being judged and feeling negative emotions like fear, shame and powerlessness. Are you willing to be out of control?

Giving up means letting go of trying to fit in or make it work in the Old Reality. (You can’t really make it work anymore anyway, can you?) It seems we need to get to the point when we say, “I’m done”, “I’m not willing to follow the old rules”, “I don’t care what I have to let go of, I’ll do it so that I don’t have to live there anymore.”

Giving up… giving it up… releasing the Old Reality up to the Greater Self Reality.

Are you ready to give up?

This is not easy and it is not fun (at least at first), but, evidently, it is necessary.

And it will not last forever.

The bottom line is that what keeps us locked into the Old Reality are the emotions that we don’t want to experience and express. All limiting belief systems and past hurts are held in place by emotions. Every physical challenge has a core emotional component. The only reason that people can “get to us” is that they trigger suppressed emotional stuff. They “make us feel bad” (stupid, less than, wrong, etc.)

It’s time to release the Emotional Roller Coaster Program and really be free. It’s time to be who we really are, without fear of what others might think or do to us.

Are you ready to be your authentic self? Are you willing to break free from the limiting programs of the Old Reality?

This is the challenge and the promise of the pressure and intensity that we are experiencing now.

And there is a huge wave of people who are waking up now who need us as the inspirations and the teachers. If you are feeling the pressure, then you are being called, called to step up and be the spiritual teacher that you have dreamed about for so long.
(Remember you do not need to be perfect! (Read Confessions of a Spiritual Teacher: Thank God(dess) That I Don’t Need to be Perfect)

How do you get free of the emotional crap?

This is why I’m teaching the ImagiCreation Emotional Freedom Program. I think this is the most powerful material that I teach. And I absolutely love teaching it!

This is what made it so that I could step up and be a Spiritual Teacher. This is what made it so that I could open to receiving and trusting the cosmic wisdom that is available to all of us. This is what has brought me clarity and peace regardless of what is going on “out there’.

I invite you to join me this Saturday, May 28, 2011.

I think Diana says it best:

“Hi Sarah, I would like to express my gratitude for the great and incredibly effective sessions on emotional work I had with you.

Here is a small testimonial which I would like to write for everybody who is on the Path to Enlightenment. We all know we have shadow energies within us, and most of the times we spend our positive energy trying to suppress them and pretending we are above all of that, without realizing how badly this approach affects all areas of our lives. For the past 10 years I was individually working on releasing my shadow energies such as fear, and most importantly – shame (which disguised itself skilfully under various masks). However the effect was minor and I was making slow progress, until I came across Sarah Biermann’s articles, and subsequently website, and sessions. The results of her work with me were /still are amazing! Sarah’s techniques are on the cutting-edge of Emotional Spiritual Healing and they are so effective, that one would be surprised by the speed with which the old patterns / problems and shadow energies disperse and new and Divine begins to unfold. It affected my entire life from relationship with people to financial issues within the matter of days! Overall I am now a very Happy Expanding Shameless Being on incredible life journey which would be (and used to be) bumpier and pricklier if I had not had these emotional freedom sessions with Sarah.

I recommend this course to everyone who is tired of vicious circle of troubles and mood/fortune swings, and really wants to break through to live full, happy and creative life! With love and light.” Diana Falby
