Here I am speaking about your own family of alters. When I was in full blown Dissociative Identity Disorder I had 56 other alters besides myself being one of the core alters. I remember being told by my therapist to take it one step at a time, try not to get over stressed and be willing to ride this journey out to the end which of course for me meant full integration. I keep remembering those words and they helped me as I moved clear across the United States to the State of Maine.
When I honestly started to get to know my alters and wanted to help them and have them all trust me this was a great turning point. However this took several years. The more I learned through the aide of Harmony who was our Mediator then the closer I felt to them and I would begin to give each alter time to take control if they did not do anything that was against my moral code. I must admit that there were a handful of alters ho tested me to the limits and there was a type of rivalry with others. I knew at this time I should keep my stress to the minimum because if I did not do that then my alters basically had free reign over me.
This was the greatest journey I have ever taken, one of self-realization. I am so thankful I did not miss the ride!
