This is a summary of my Heilkunst (sequential homeopathy) update from mid-December to late January (7 weeks). Read more about our Heilkunst journey here.
On December 10, 2015, I started the following droppers:
1) Mitch. 30C – (Physical -Digestion/ Plantars warts/Neck and shoulder pain/TMJ)
2) Puls. nutt. 200C – (Emotions – stress/anxiety related to uncertainties at work)
3) Sars. 1M – (Mentals – life purpose / coping skills)
4) Peri-Menopausal Symptoms – Visc. 200C – a drop a day plus a drop in a glass of water and sip throughout the day.
Chronic miasm wafers: Psora 12C/30C/200C/1M/10M
Psora is one of the chronic miasms and I’d previously cleared Psora to 10M in May 2012. (Alas, I didn’t keep track of my experiences back then, so I can’t remember what it was like for me to clear it the first time, but in general, my healing reactions weren’t bad back in 2012. Had it been note-worthy, I likely would have written about it). I cleared Psora out of season (i.e., Psora is typically cleared around the the autumnal equinox) because my Heilkunstler cues into what it is that I need and currently my body needs to clear this miasm.
Psora is considered the first of the typical eight miasms that are cleared. The psoric state of mind is not feeling like it has enough and anxiety. Of course, it’s also related to Psoriasis. Find out more about Psora here.
A day after starting my droppers, I was feeling down / depressed. Feeling like I wasn’t enough and was lacking a purpose. My boss had asked me to use some of my vacation time, and so I had some unexpected time off and I was completed deflated. It showed me how much my sense of purpose is linked to my day job (which I don’t even love to do, oddly enough). Within a couple of days, I had a new rash on the right side of my neck.
On December 14, I started the Psora wafers (one per day for five days). On Day 2 of the Psora wafers, I had hives on the back of my left leg and a new rash on my lower back. Lovely.
The dropper for my peri-menopausal symptoms helped and my feelings of running hot went away. Yay!
On December 21, I was hit by a wall of exhaustion / fatigue and had a migraine (very uncommon for me), so I assume that it was related to clearing Psora. This feeling passed after I had a good night’s sleep. Also, I had developed a rash on both hips, on my lower back, my upper back and both sides of my neck. They were itchy, but not as itchy as the Lepr. clearing was.
Around this same time, I was feeling the emotional effects of clearing Psora – feelings of anxiety and not feeling good enough.
It’s now the end of January, which is a long time to go between clearings (~ 7 weeks) because I schedule my clearings for every two of Moses’ clearings to save some money and because it’s not urgent for me to receive frequent clearings, since my issues are relatively minor.
The itchiness associated with the Psora clearing eventually faded. Thankfully.
One positive thing that happened last month is that I started to have time and energy to write about things that don’t involve Moses’ health and our Heilkunst journey. I started writing in my “Enjoying Our Simple Life” blog, where I write about whatever inspires me (simple living, exploring themes about finding your life purpose, things that bring me joy). I feel that this is a huge sign of a positive shift in my own inner health. The last time that I wrote in this blog was September 2009, so it had been a long, long time since I’d had energy to write about topics just for me and just for the fun of it.
Another shift that I’ve noticed is that I used to exclusively read blogs that involved health, healing, essential oils and autism (because parents of children with autism are so knowledgeable about healing). Now, I’ve been spending a lot of time reading blogs about simple living, financial independence, investments and financial health. What a switch!
I have continued to be stressed about how the economic downtown is affecting my industry and my work load. It is quite unsettling to say the least. I have reduced my hours to parttime hours, and am currently taking 4 weeks of holidays because there is very little work to go around. Eep!
The truth is that I have found not working to be very challenging, since a lot of my self-worth is tied up with my work. I can very easily be unmotivated and sloth-like with all of this extra time on my hands.
Last week was my first week of “holidays” and I took a two day first aid course and spent most of the rest of the week with Moses because he’s had a challenging couple of weeks. Yesterday, I also spent some sweet time hanging out with one of my dear friends. My intention during my time off includes spending time with friends, helping a friend with her campaign for the municipal election, dance, practice yoga, attend a deep water fitness class with a friend (!), meditate, lots of reading, writing, self-care (massage, physiotherapy, acupuncture, chiropractic), clean the house (something that I tend to avoid), declutter, cook some meals (when I’m busy at work, DH typically does most of the cooking), do some professional reading, explore my life purpose, work on our taxes, find ways to save money, think about our family’s financial health, go for walks, and otherwise do things that feed myself. Whew! That sounds like a lot of stuff! I also don’t want to be too busy (and truthfully, I haven’t been). Trying to find a middle ground.
I’ve been a bit down / stressed because of Moses’ recent health issues – especially needing general anaesthesia twice in a 12 day period and making a decision to start him on a new prophylactic antibiotic, but I’m hoping that next month will be a gentler month for us all. My focus is to stay grounded. Breathe in and out. Trust that everything will be okay.
I’m sure that my next round of homeopathic droppers will help to support me emotionally, mentally and physically, and I plan on receiving a karmic healing in mid-February, which I’m sure will help too.
May February be a good month for our family and yours.
