Her Place in the Sun
In the Logosynthesis Live seminar, the client made a map of her family situation when she was three years old. Her father had been absent, travelling, and her mother as well as her nanny were occupied with their newly born babies. She felt extremely lonely, her place in the sun taken up by her new sister and by the nanny’s baby.
In the treatment process, she went through the positions of the adults involved, one after the other. She discovered how much each of them had suffered in his or her own way. Here we applied the Logosynthesis technique of treating the introject. Father had lost his mother as a young boy and had decided to transfer the love for his deceased mother only to his daughter, thereby excluding his wife, and making a mother out of his daughter. Mother felt abandoned by her husband. After applying Logosynthesis to these parental introjects, the client felt utter relief.
The icing on the cake of this process: immediately after it was finished, her phone rang. She was annoyed, because she always carefully switched it off. When she looked at the display, she couldn’t believe her eyes. Her younger sister had just called her from Hong Kong. This sister hadn’t called her in 20 years.
