025 - Loyalty
Many Minds on the Issue

Sometimes things happen, and we get shame-triggered. This week, when something happened, we realized almost immediately that it was an attempt to exile us from community and that we were feeling shame and where it originally came from. We were able to work on it and heal it. We share a post-mortem of that exploration and journey as an example of memory reconsolidation. We wrote & recorded that section of this post on Monday (May 22, 2023) & Tuesday (May 23, 2023), respectively. Saturday — we're positive this bit of healing really took. We're good on this issue. It's been put to bed. St ..read more

Onboarding is what we call helping stuck residents become more present in the Here & Now, and work on coconsciousness. What does it generally take to help system members who are stuck in PTSD loops or trapped in the There & Then to get free, or become more present in the Here & Now? We give a little history for how we figured it out, and an overview and big picture of the process we use in the United Front Boot Camp and the book United Front: Recruits, with hints on how you can work on freeing your lost headmates. Trigger warning: As always, these episodes may not be appropriate wh ..read more

Everyone needs an anchor or a base for exploring life. Some get it from family or friends, and if something shakes it, it can be devastating.

Many Minds on the Issue
by The Crisses

A discussion of how important names and re-naming can be for individuals, both external and within a plural system. Names have power, and what we name our headmates can create harmony or friction within the plural system.

Trigger warning: If you have a problem with a certain nickname of `Richard`, this episode may bother you. As always, these episodes may not be appropriate while driving.

021 - Serenity Two Ways
Many Minds on the Issue

United Front: Serenity Two Ways (021) A daily exercise in serenity; one of the many ways to be more present and less dissociated. The opposite of dissociation is presence. Presence is not just one thing going on, it's a collection of subtle arts including being mindful, anchored in the Here & Now, calm or serene, and being aware of one's surroundings. It was during a daily course in self-improvement that we discovered the passage "Serenity" from James Allen's As a Man Thinketh (1903), made a personal recording of it, and for a period of time we listened to it daily. Between the words and o ..read more

United Front: Please Wipe Your Feet Before You Come In (019) Starting with and expanding on the United Front Boot Camp post of the same name: leaving your baggage and triggers outside of your meetings and greetings to form internal community. When you're starting your internal community, it's best to be on your best behavior with one another and leave your mess outside the meeting room. We go into our "As inside, so outside (and vice versa)" metaphor of treating your system like any household, and wiping the slate and starting over again as new acquaintances in your internal "home".

Trigger Topics: Coffee and Deprogramming Triggers (016) Recording on trigger deprogramming and managing triggers from 2011 when we were triggered by the smell of coffee. Even once you have managed to work on most of your triggers, new ones can come up, ones you didn't expect or new aspects of old triggers. Here's a recording of when we were triggered in May 2011 and some of the ideas we've used to manage and work on triggers. Trigger warning: This discusses an active trigger, having switched between a protector or persecutor and a little, and is recorded by Hart, who is working on managing the ..read more
