We all have many aspects to community and integrating those parts into wholeness is an important step in healing.

Sometimes the many different people living the community, expressing themselves in voices that seem distinct from one another, can make the inner child with its wants and needs and the angry voice that expresses its opinion too much for us at times.  With all these different parts express differing desires and needs and opinions, we may begin to feel as if we have no clarity. It is difficult to know which voices to pay attention to and which ones to ignore or dismiss. Even if we manage to move forward amidst the confusion, doubts and concerns may linger in our psyches simply because they have not been fully expressed and examined. As a result, we may have trouble being at peace with the decisions we do make. 

One way to handle this dilemma is to consciously make time for a meeting of the minds within our psyche. This can be done with meaningful dialogue and action. In both we can summon the many fragments that make up the whole of who we are and give them each a chance to speak. This can be a helpful tool in the face of a decision we need to make, and it can also be a fruitful path to take in the interest of self-exploration and self-care. When we gather the many fragments of our psyche together, the health and power of the whole is greatly increased. 

Let’s imagine the roundtable in which we gather all the various representatives of our being, allowing them to name themselves and giving them a chance to speak. We allow each one to weigh in, fully expressing the perspective they represent and we listen without comment. As we listen, we may be amazed at the wisdom and energy stored in these fragments of our community. This gathering brings the fragmented pieces of our psyche into a closer relationship, enabling us to move forward as a unified whole.
