Mary Hawkins, RN
Aletheian Therapy Practitioner
I found him crumpled on the floor in front of the old couch in the basement. He had soiled himself and rocking back and forth his sobs sounded like a child’s as he repeatedly cried out “Oh No! Oh No!” When he saw me he abruptly became quiet, stood up and rushed past me to the bathroom. When he returned, in clean dry cloths, I asked him what had so badly upset him. He couldn’t tell me. He had no memory of the event that had just taken place.
That was 1997, just a few months after he and I had married at the church where we had met. I knew that he had been abused by a grandfather, but I did not know the full extent. As the days and time passed by, more of his story was revealed as he allowed the memories to come forward. Through my training as a Registered Nurse, I knew the causes and signs of DID/MPD. We began to realize that this was his diagnosis and the answer to many of the confusing questions in his life.
So began my journey discovering the amazing ability of the mind to maintain stability, survival and a form of normalcy in the face of unimaginable trauma. This also started my quest to assist these incredible survivors to find a place of peace and rest that many had never experienced before.
I have now worked with dissociation/multiplicity for over 20 years. This passion has led me to, what we now call, Aletheian Therapy. ALETHEIA is a Greek word which means “Truth”. The Therapy is a collaboration between the Spirit-of-God and the spirit-of-man in order to establish “truth in the inner parts”. This is accomplished by purposefully being assisted to a state of relaxed stillness and narrowed Spiritual focus before God. As Holy Spirit lives within each of us, He is the One Who directs the mind and its memories in safety and completion to the restful place of His design.
Only under His leadership can we be guided safely down this path so nothing is lost, everything is given a purpose and the “House” never collapses. There are some I’ve worked with that do not know or understand God as we begin our time together. This never stops Holy Spirit’s gentle guidance and direction because of Father God’s Great Love and Desire for ALL to be set free and find peaceful rest.
Scripture speaks of the calming or stilling of the mind in Psalms 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God”. It is this state of mind that we aspire to so that He can restore our soul. In Psalms 23 it states, “He makes me to lie down in green pastures: He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul”.
