Some metaphors really describe homeopathy better than simple descriptions. One I use often to describe homeopathy as being “life medicine” is the image of a crystal ball.
We are born into this world a pure spirit. If our miasm is not too very strong we are like a pure smooth crystal ball. Flawless. We can see through it and our life is an expression of this perfection. As time passes and the challenges of life grind on us, the smooth crystal ball becomes faceted, like the ones we hang in windows that reflect beautiful rainbow colors.
Each challenging situation or event, be it physical, emotional, mental or spiritual leaves it’s facet on the surface of our crystal ball. The crystal ball is still the same crystal ball that we started life with but now has a new surface to reflect our inner purity. Though the perception of the different colors that are reflected change, we are still looking at the core essence of the person.
When I receive a case I am looking at the all of the different facets of the person. They all shine a different color and change in different conditions but are still expressive of the persons pure vital force. These facets amount to the ways a person has survived in life. They show the suffering, the challenges, the way they have made choices in response to life’s challenges. They can equal our mental, emotional and physical states of being. This is what is asking to be healed for a person.
We may accumulate many facets in a lifetime but it is still representative of one vital force expression. There will always be a core issue that the person has been born with that eventually gets expressed through the patterns or similarities in their facets. Our job as the homeopath is to help them polish these facets smooth. This is the healing process.
Because the facets reflect the inner part of the crystal, we can do healing of one aspect and still have other aspects or facets to heal and polish. I do not think we ever really return to the smooth crystal we were born with. But with proper homeopathic treatment we can heal and polish the majority of our facets smooth. When this has happened we are in a much better place and life is easier, we are healthier and a more true reflection of our spiritual purity.
We often wish we had a crystal ball to gaze into and see the future; to get answers to all our questions. When our crystal ball of life has done great healing we have evolved. In a more evolved state our psychic abilities to know develop. In many ways the return to a healthier state is just like having or being the crystal ball. We may then move through life easier to express our more divine purpose. The only form of medicine that I know of that can help a person accomplish this is homeopathy. Let these images of the crystal ball, being representative of our life, help you understand the real power of homeopathy. Homeopathy is life medicine!
