Spirit Release and Sub-Personalities
by David Furlong

One of the most important elements in the release of spirit attachments and invasions is appreciating the role that sub-personalities play in this process. This article looks at sub-personalities or ‘ego-states’, as they are sometimes named, and the methods of healing the inner trauma that they hold. These traumas can, in some cases, attract alien spirit entities, in the sense of elements that are not native to the psyche, which then further reinforce or compound the original problem.

The concept of an inner world peopled by different aspects of the self has been recognised for many years in psychotherapy, through such authorities and Jung, Berne, Rowan, Wilber and Schwartz. Effectively the primary ‘ego’ aspect of the psyche creates split off parts of itself to hold the energy of specific traumas. From a spiritual perspective, for these fragments to exist independently, they require a small portion of the soul essence, which allows them to inhabit their own psychic space, as independent characters within the inner world. They normally reside below the level of the conscious mind or primary ego self, except when they are triggered by an outer stimulus. When this occurs they release some of their emotional content that can generate physical, emotional and psychological responses.

For example, let us imagine a young child that is attacked by a dog. In order to deal with the trauma of this experience the psyche creates a sub-personality to hold the pain of the occurrence. When accessed in trance states these parts are often perceived at the age when the trauma occurred. So the adult, linking back to the sub-personality might recognize this part as a terrified child. Whilst this might be the norm, in practice, any form could be created. This split off part retains the trauma of the experience and only releases an aspect of the pain in response to an outer world stimulus, such as when the primary ego is again confronted by a dog, whether playful or aggressive. In these cases a feeling of panic or terror can spontaneously emerge, sometimes causing physical symptoms, such as palpitations or sweating.
