I was going to write about my “savior/rescuer” complex–and I still intend to (that will be my next post, which will probably be up tomorrow), but I wanted to post this first. This video was just sent to me by a friend and I’m BLOWN AWAY.
I’m a Christian. I’m not a fundamentalist or a strict Biblical Christian by any means, but I still believe in the Trinity. I know many readers of this blog don’t believe in God, and I don’t think that this is the right place or time for me to try to convert anyone, since my own faith is still so shaky. But still–this deserves to be seen, even if you don’t believe in God.

A little background, if you’re interested, can be read about in the following post. I’m going to be attending a 4 day Christian healing program that has been effective for people suffering from trauma, PTSD, C-PTSD, DID, and even personality disorders. I’m a little scared but very excited. The reason I’m not posting the entire article here is because I don’t write about my religious or spiritual views on this blog–or at least I try to avoid it as much as possible. This is a blog about trauma, therapy and healing, but not spirituality or religion. That being said, I’ve come to believe that spirituality must be very much a part of recovery for the most effective results–and certain disorders–Cluster B disorders especially–must have some kind of spiritual element for treatment to work at all (even if that just means being prayed for). Here is the article I wrote on my other blog, if you’re interested in reading it.
