The Healing Room at Heartspace
Module Six - 60 minutes
Focusing on a Part
Knowing about parts, (including Exiles and Protectors, as well as Self), from earlier modules and from your therapy, prepares you to get to know them more deeply in your journey to healing. You have already identified a number of parts. You may have been observing them, checking in with them, and discovering new ones since learning about parts.
Recognizing parts and how they become activated and sometimes take over, will lead you to become curious about how they got this way and wonder if you could help them become less extreme, feel better, & become more harmonious with the rest of you inner family of parts.
When this happens, we call it a trailhead. A trailhead is something about a part or parts that has our attention and curiosity. It is a place to start an exploration. It can be helpful to keep a list of trailheads.

Alternating Bilateral Stimulation
ABS can enhance the work you do with your parts; increasing Self-Energy and deepening your relationship with the part.
Remember, The Healing Room is set up with a stereo system that can provide audible Alternating Bilateral Stimulation (ABS) which is a component of EMDR therapy (Eye-Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing). The unique Alternating Bilateral Stimulation sample played continuously in The Healing Room is called Ocean Crossover and mimics ocean waves moving back and forth across the room at a gentle low volume in the background. It has a relaxing effect and supports the neural integration of new perspectives and healing of negatively charged memories, particularly when it is paired with specific tasks.
Having the ABS playing at a volume loud enough to hear it, but low enough that it seems to fade into the background while you learn these skills, is optimal.
