Homeopathy: practicing medicine as an art

banner3

Hello dear readers,

In today’s world, most of us accept medicine as a science. Conventional medicine today divides the body into infinitely small and separate systems, and our problems are treated as dysfunctions of a system, requiring repair much like a broken machine. We are given foreign substances as treatment, but our emotional suffering is generally considered irrelevant and goes unheard and unnoticed.

We no longer associate the medical profession as an artful, holistic practice requiring insight and even wisdom. This is changing, and French homeopathic practitioner and doctor of sports medicine for France’s national soccer team, Martine Gardenal, says she prefers the term “médecine de vie” or life medicine to alternative medicine. She explains that the holistic process of healing the human being using living materials from plants, animals, and minerals is at the foundation of homeopathy, which treats like with like. The idea being that a substance which might make people who are healthy become sick or out of balance might allow those who are ill to become well.

Much like a vaccine, the basic principle behind homeopathic medicine is to figure out what is causing harm or disharmony within a person. Once the source of harm is found, which is often described as an unspoken word or an unconscious form of suffering which has translated to the body, the doctor finds an equivalent to this suffering in a natural substance. Based on the practitioner’s knowledge of the human body and the symbolic and chemical composition of pollutants, poisons, venom, and other noxious substances, a treatment is designed for that particular patient’s illness. The patient is then “inoculated” with this substance in a highly diluted form. In the French language, the word for “words” – “mots” sounds exactly the same as the plural form of the word for suffering, or “maux”.

The diagnostic process is interesting. The practitioner must figure out by questioning the patient about his or her personal as well as family life. Unresolved issues and pain caused or experienced by previous generations can spark disease in a person living today. The emotional body and cellular structure of the human being are extremely sensitive and subtle. To become an effective practitioner of homeopathy requires a great understanding of human nature, physiology, biology, natural sciences, psychology, wisdom, and compassion. The homeopathic doctor is almost a detective, carefully questioning the patient and analyzing each symptom.

homeopathy

Homeopathy was invented around 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), born in the German town of Meissen, then Saxony. Hahnemann was a brilliant intellectual, writer, and tireless researcher. Convinced that the medicine of his time, devoted to dulling symptoms rather than curing diseases was not only a waste of time but also dangerous, Hahnemann spent years translating medical texts from all over the world. He stopped practicing medicine for many years, and he moved frequently with his family. His curious mind and scientific spirit caused him to put his entire family to work collecting poisonous plants, venomous insects, and other toxins, once he hypothesized that a very small dose of what would generally be considered a poison could possibly definitively cure a disease.

Hahnemann had sought to develop a medical system that relied solely on single drugs in harmless doses and based upon pure observation, empiricism and experiment. He sought to “do away with the blind chimney sweeper’s methods of dulling symptoms,” [Gumpert, 99] then so much in vogue. He fought “with redoubled energy for the purity of medicine. He struck deadly blows at three points: first, he believed that the doctor should prepare his own medicines; second, he advocated ever more definitely the administration of small doses; and, third, he was a most passionate opponent of mixed doses that contained a large number of ingredients.” [Gumpert, 96]

Working with a compounding pharmacist in his own home during the 8 years he spent in Paris, France, Hahnemann experimented with dosages and substances for various afflictions, eventually diluting the substances to a degree where only an infinitely small portion of the original substance remained. The medications were then activated by vigorous shaking. The shaking would cause the identity of the substance to be communicated to the remainder of the carrier (water, oil, sugar, or alcohol). In the theory of the memory of water developed by French researchers Jacques Benveniste and more recently Luc Montaigner as well as Japanese naturopath Masaru Emoto, the water retains an electromagnetic signal of the original medicine or substance that was diluted . As you can see, homeopathy is a form of quantum medicine, which relies on consciousness and electromagnetic fields. Water is a carrier of consciousness, acting much like a liquid crystal in a computer.

Hahnemann carefully documented case histories, treatment plans, and various dilutions and experiments. These documents can still be read and studied today. The art of homeopathy continues to develop and is being used to treat ordinary ailments as well as complex diseases such as autoimmune disorders. Many believe that homeopathy is a pseudo-science, or else that it is only effective for minor troubles such as cuts, bruises, or sore throats. But experienced practitioners deny this claim. The problem being that homeopathy cannot be evaluated according to conventional medical standards. For example, double blind studies cannot be conducted because of the individualized nature of the treatments.

What works for one person may not work for another. In each case, the practitioner carefully listens to the person’s symptoms, expression of feelings, and analyzes family dynamics and family history. If a person self-treats, the full effect of the treatment may not work, because the wisdom and the intent of the practitioner participate in the healing process of the patient. Homeopathy is not about chemistry; it is based on physics. Physics and energy medicine will most likely emerge as powerful healing technology, possibly soon replacing the chemistry based drugs upon which we now rely.

In spite of the continued debate regarding the validity of homeopathy, about 56% of French people trust in it and use it regularly. It is much easier to find homeopathic practitioners and products in France than it is in the United States to date, but prejudice against the profession and its products is deep-rooted even in Europe, where the practice originated.

As humanity moves closer to a global shift into higher consciousness, I predict an expansion of the healing arts and an increased respect for holistic practices and wisdom in medicine. As human knowledge of quantum physics, entanglement, the powerful effects of human consciousness on the creation of reality expand, we will see patients becoming increasingly self-aware, responsible, and empowered in their own healing process.

The mapping of the human genome indicates that we each have 23 pairs of chromosomes. Esoteric teachers such as the channeled magnetic master Kryon have revealed that the Universe is built on a base of 12, and that all mathematics of the universe and in nature follow this pattern. He explains that there is a 24th pair of chromosomes in the human genome remaining to be discovered, and that the hidden pair is quantum. According to Kryon, when we discover the missing laws of physics  – the 5th and 6th laws involving strong and weak inter-dimensional forces, we will have at hand new keys for understanding reality and for self-healing.

Homeopathy is a bridge leading towards quantum healing, which requires on the part of healer and healed pure intent and discarding of negative energies and blockages. The intuitive human being knows how to remove the blockages which prevent the human body from living unhindered in the quantum or unified field. This is the definition of disease – living outside of harmony. Current understanding of consciousness takes into account that the consciousness of the scientific observer has an effect on the outcome of experiments. We will soon begin to understand how the intent of the medical practitioner as well as the intent and attitude of the patient inform the healing experience. The placebo effect does play a role in homeopathy and is a recognized though not yet understood process. Placebos as well as homeopathic treatments are effective for humans as well as animals, and the consciousness of intent may well play a key role in the success of these treatments.

Homeopathic medicine requires a sensitive and compassionate ear. A qualified practitioner is a person who is able to sense and understand the suffering and blockages which prevent a person from healing herself. By removing the blocks, the human being is freed, and the body restores itself to its natural state – harmony. This is the new medicine.

What our forests can teach us about building wiser human societies

 

8404634227_246cd48a9a_b

Dear readers,

I’ve been waiting with much anticipation to get my library copy to read “The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate”, by German forest ranger, Peter Wohlleben. And just the other day, NPR radio’s TED Radio Hour broadcast Canadian ecologist Susan Simard’s TED Talk, How Trees Talk to Each Other.

While I was already aware of the vast underground cooperative networks between fungi and tree roots, what I learned from Susan Simard’s talk is that trees cooperate with one another, and that certain trees, called Mother Trees or Hubs, are the matriarchs or elders of the forest. Other younger trees depend on these older, more experienced trees to flourish. Different varieties of trees share nutrients because they have different needs at varying times of the year. Using this Internet like web of mycelium (fungi), the tree roots are like nerve endings in the brain – the forest being a sort of living intelligent organism which is always changing. It seems as if the trees truly care about the well-being of all other trees, even those who are of different species, though trees do recognize and give preferential treatment to their own seedlings.

Simard explains that when a mother or hub tree is cut down, the entire forest must take stock and reorganize around the loss. If too many hub trees are destroyed or if the diversity of the forest is disturbed too extensively, it becomes much more difficult for the forest to recover. The trees, seedlings, underbrush are in constant communication. They share news of threats and windfalls, and when a tree is about to die, it distributes its wealth of nutrients to its neighbors, as well as its accumulated knowledge.

So what can our societies learn from the forest? Animal societies often have matriarchal figures – elders who bring cohesion and coherence to the group. Among such animals, and there are many others, are orcas, wolves, and elephants. If a matriarch is unexpectedly killed, the animal group often falls into chaos.

In traditional human societies, this type of system of organization is also common. We have lost wisdom from our human societies by focusing too much on male, rational side of the mind, and by intentionally and often savagely suppressing the feminine characteristics of nurturing, cooperation, compassion, and intuition. As humanity and human nature evolve, rising to a higher level of consciousness, we are beginning to see the paradigm shift at work in human societies.

I believe we will soon see evidence of more cooperative social systems at work. Our new societies will organize around wisdom of elders, both male and female. Diplomacy and exchange will be valued over egocentric competition or winning at all costs. Like the trees of the forests, a win-win philosophy will prime.

The constant web of communication which we now enjoy with the Internet will become an intuitive interactive web, once humans begin to discover the power of human consciousness. The old paradigm has had our creative powers restrained in a passive and hierarchical system in which only certain privileged elites have enjoyed access to power and wealth and where class systems were intentionally designed to divide and control people. This has made it difficult to create understanding and unity between different social and ethnic groups. This is the system which is now in deconstruction.

In the intuitive web, the human being understands that the creative source and force is within each of us. By connecting to this invisible web which is the unifying field or matrix with a high level of awareness over our thoughts and feelings, we create outcomes through synchronous thought and action. Because the quantum field is unified by a bias for harmony and love, these outcomes benefit all people, animals, and the planet. We are on the verge of discovering how the underpinning of the physics of the universe is the energy of love. What was once esoteric or spiritual knowledge is about to enter the field of science. And it is by marrying science and technology to feminine wisdom that we will reach new heights in medicine, communications, travel, energy systems that have never before been possible in human history.

It is already possible to access this system which religions may call a state of grace or illumination. By mastering your own thoughts and intentions and releasing all negativity, you can eliminate all separation from the unified field. In this way, you gain mastery over your individual consciousness as you connect to the matrix, and your thoughts create the reality you experience. Self-love is a prerequisite for mastery.

What was once considered only available to highly spiritually evolved beings will increasingly become part of the normal way of perceiving and living on our planet. We will become more conceptual and intuitive, as well as cooperative…just like the trees in the forest, who anticipate one another’s needs. The forest is a unified field of being, and each tree plays a cooperative role. Everyone’s needs are met, and the whole being of the forest is an expression of harmony. In the new human societies, as an increasing number of humans finds joy and inner peace, harmony will also become characteristic of human societies.

Pineal (a poem)

69c473928a9c24b5b4c014b4d040de52

In the bedrock of soft ooze

sprout the rods and cones of a ladder to Jacob’s dream

spruced upwards

gazing inwards

the hallucination of a dream left behind for too long

the yearning of a sunken volcano

a sisterhood of souls abandoned

yearning for the connection

sailing towards the energetics of a wise and warm embrace.

I am told humanity has folded its legs

tucked its head

and wound itself into the embrace of a temporary womb.

the pine cone falls from a lofty place

dropping swirling shedding

layers of forgotten dreams

shattering the brutal murder from the shards of history’s mind wipe

she lies in a tomb shrouded in moss and cobwebs

vines entangle the stone, hair, bone, twig, and flower

enwised

a new being unfolds

tentatively stretches a sticky limb

through a film once designed to hold and protect

she is reborn

looking inward

to revise the heart of humanity
