Have you ever said, "well, part of me wants one thing, and another part of me wants something else!" ("Part of me wants to feel better, but another part of me doesn't! Part of me wants to wait, but another part of me is so excited. Part of me agrees with them and another part of me doesn't. Part of me is annoyed but another part of me feels like it's all just totally fine and I should relax...)
Does this sound familiar to you?
I like to call this: "inner conflict between parts".
I listen with my clients to all their inner parts, offering them deep understanding and extending compassion until each part can relax.
When these parts of you are no longer taking up so much energy and time, it opens the door for you to live in the present moment.
Being in the present is a creative and enthusiastic experience, not a lethargic and naive one.
Imagine the freedom you'll have once you're no longer pushed and pulled between the past or the future. It's similar to shutting down programs that are running in the background of your computer, creating problems. We discover those programs, and the inherently good reasons why they exist, only to close them and find the system instantly returns to a state of equilibrium.
This work is called Internal Family Systems and it's a style of counseling created by Rick Schwartz about twenty years ago.
