SRA/DID Series: Post 1– Surmises On Working With Survivors and Those With Parts

By survivors, I mean those who survived SRA (Satanic Ritual Abuse)

By parts, I mean those who are divided and those who are DID.

They do not need you to be the all-knowing, all-seeing, benevolent counselor who can fix everything and MAKE them be a certain way, or fix them or their disintegration or dividedness.

They just need to you to be available, willing to connect with them, authentic, just flat-out willing to foster trust with them, and listen to them.

Their problems are not like those of others. They are not a problem to be fixed. They cannot be forced to integrate.

Nor is integration necessarily the goal.

They need you to be present. Not capable of fixing their pain.

They want to know you are willing to invest something.

Are you available to walk a mile or two, or three, or twenty?

Just being available makes a massive difference.

Even if you don’t understand everything…

Even if you don’t have a counseling degree or are not an expert, your affectionate presence makes a massive difference.

Some of them have parts that don’t trust Jesus but hate Jesus.

But the question I work have for us is, can they trust you to be present and close your mouth and just manifest the Lord in his gentleness, tenderness and love.

A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory. And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

Are you available and will you listen as they process without trying to tell them the answer?

In some cases, we will respond with what we think the Holy Spirit is saying. Or a glib Scripture reference.

A knee-jerk or quick reaction is not what they need.

Just your presence.

Be there, family. For they are family, even if they are programmed by the enemy.

No greater power in the world than the tender affection of the Lord, and the willingness to invest in these survivors.
