Self Spontaneously Emerging

"Beneath the surface of the protective parts of trauma survivors there exists an undamaged essence, a Self that is confident, curious, and calm, a Self that has been sheltered from destruction by the various protectors that have emerged in their efforts to ensure survival. Once those protectors trust that it is safe to separate, the Self will spontaneously emerge, and the parts can be enlisted in the healing process"

-Bessel Van der Kolk from The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma
