Such deity is set up as the powerful source to whom to turn for help-- yet that source is set up by the person oneself.

It entails simultaneous input from some experiential event (A) into two (or more) parts of a hierarchically organized psychological system ("tendencies" which are "not normally isolated"): X ==>>== Y (where >> indicates the previous dominance relation in the holistic system). By way of A relating to Y, it becomes related to X, and integrated into the hierarchical structure, letting the latter be transformed (similarly to assimilation/ accommodation notion of Piaget).
