Common Audiences Served
Discovering MErcy has largely grown through counseling to people who have endured severe abuse with a spiritual component, sometimes resulting in trauma-based mind control for a survivor.
When a person survives events that are overwhelming and do not make sense during childhood, a child creates a defense mechanism to live out of to survive and function. This defense mechanism helps them survive the unsurvivable. At Discovering MErcy, we help people and all parts of themselves to understand the language of their heart to live in love rather than rely on a defense mechanism.
Some of the complex issues we help counsel include:
- Ritual Sexual Abuse
- Satanic Ritual Abuse
- Developmental Trauma
- Trauma-based Mind Control
- Sexual Abuse-Child Sexual Abuse/Assault, Molestation, Rape, Sexual Harassment
- Emotional Abuse
- Loss and Violent Traumas
- PTSD (Post Trauma Stress Disorder)
- Abandonment, and others
At this time Discovering MErcy does not work with children, teenagers, or those seeking marital counseling.
Commonly Reported Reactions to Trauma are:
- Anxiety or fear of danger to self or loved ones, being alone, being in other frightening situations, having a similar event happen again.
- Avoidance of situations or thoughts that remind you of the traumatic event.
- Being easily startled by loud noises or sudden movements.
- Flashbacks where images of the traumatic event come into your mind suddenly for no apparent reason, or where you mentally re-experience the event.
- Physical symptoms such as tense muscles, trembling or shaking, nausea, headaches, sweating, and tiredness.
- Lack of interest in usual activities, including loss of appetite or interest in sex.
- Sadness, feelings of loss, or aloneness.
- Sleep problems, including getting to sleep, waking in the middle of the night, dreams or nightmares about the traumatic event.
- Problems with thinking, concentration, or remembering things (especially aspects of the traumatic event).
- Preoccupation with thinking about the trauma.
- Guilt and self-doubt for not having acted in some other way during the trauma, or for being better off than others, or feeling responsible for another person’s death or injury.
- Anger or irritability at what has happened, at the senselessness of it all, at what caused the event to happen, often asking “Why me?”.
Characteristics of People Who have Suffered Ritual Abuse or Trauma Based Mind Control without knowing it include:
- They have an inexplicable feeling that their own family is dangerous, that they don't feel safe with parents or siblings.
- They feel guilty all the time but don't know why.
- They have a sense of self-loathing and that they deserve to hate themselves.
- They have a sense that God can't forgive them and doesn't love them, no matter what the Bible says.
- They feel detached from normal family relationships—with their spouse, children, parents, or siblings. Women in particular fear sex or find it traumatizing.
- They fear their problems are too complex to be solved.
- They feel attacked by the quotation of Scripture which ought to ordinarily comfort them.
- They interpret all of the above as "spiritual attack" by the enemy (Satan or demons).
