Several of us talk about “NTIS” in our podcasts because it is such a big deal for us. It has really helped so much! It’s a great tip for learning to separate “memory time” and “now time”. That can be really hard to do with dissociation, and we are so grateful for our T for coming up with it.
NTIS stands for “Now Time is Safe”.
It helps us remember that some of those bad memories, that can so often feel so very present like it is happening right now, is really in the past.
We have already been through the hard part.
That was memory-time.
But now, in the present, in now-time, we are safe. Our husband and children are safe. Our house is safe. Our T is safe. Her office is safe. We are safe.
