Erikson’s Theory, growth, assessments, healings, deliverance


Planting a seed and waiting for the plant to rise and become fully expressed takes time and patience. As one knows, the feelings and outcomes of this are incredible and amazing. Waiting and watching for a new living thing to emerge and unveil its beauty. As a student, I recognize that the material I've studied, understood, practiced, and implemented has had a continuous or accumulative effect. I was rather reserved as I began my master's degree journey, but as I progressed through my studies, I started noticing a transition from guarded to assertive while maintaining an open mind. My learning strategies and development have evolved as a result of my own growth and the various settings I encountered during my graduate studies. Both assessments and the people interviewed have come to the same conclusion about who I am. I have been given healings and deliverances from the gravestones and confirmation in the milestones that have been incurred in five and half decades of life.
