Recovering from Shock

Candles_960x350_scaled_cropp.jpg

Here in Australia we are lighting candles and sending prayers for the people of Manchester, the victims and their families.  Although we are so far away, we are also so very close.

For those who are feeling shocked, and most of us are access to Bach Flowers Rescue Remedy, which is readily available in both countries, is a comforting and safe all around shock support remedy.   Sometimes people do not realise they have gone into shock and Dr. Bach’s remedies have long formed a part of all quality homeopathic practices, and are available in Holland and Barrett, Boots the Chemist and other quality stores in the United Kingdom.   Here in Australia, they are also available at many chemists, and good health food stores.

Follow the directions on the bottle.  They can also be added to your drinking water, and a few drops in the bath before bed is a soothing way to calm down before a good night’s sleep.

Metaphor, Dreaming and Casetaking

Hermes

Hermes, as pictured above, was not only known to be the messenger of the Gods, but also the messenger within dreams, the translator of the truth and also trickster, ensuring that the truth is sought for and not just Googled at the surface level.    So much can be gained from the dream, for dreams always reveal the truth of the matter, the origin of the pathology.

Today we are presented with hair colouring, fake tanning, plastic surgery, perfumed skin and  veneered smiles, something Hahnemann never had to face.  The miasmatic presentation is trickier than it ever was before, when we are sifting to find the truth, to find the origin of the pathology;  the pathology that won’t quit.  We will, however,  find it in the realm of Hermes and Morpheus (Greek God of the Dreams).

The dream itself is a remedy, and by that I do not mean the poor sections of the repertory, old and bereft side effects of ancient provings,  but the adjuncts which can re-position, prescribe and move a patient deeper into the truth and away from the prison of the pathology.    Side stepping the aesthetic two step between pleasure and pain, and searching for depth, reveals the direction of the pathology.   This is not something which floats on the surface, like oil on water, but involves diving deeply, with astounding results.    With all things worthwhile, this takes time and commitment.
