I also wish I had a super small emergency kit. One that I can throw in my pocket or a small bag.
2. The reason, I need more tools for dealing with stuff. I don't think DD is sick in the sense that I usually think of being sick, she's got this lingering cough from us being sick a while ago, and sometimes it's getting irritated and I don't know why. And poor kid threw up twice this morning from the coughing--I really don't think she has a gastro bug, I think it was just the irritation from coughing fits, and I don't know enough to do to help her. The coughing has subsided a bit and she's looking at a book relatively patiently waiting for me to finish this, but this cough has lingered (sounds dry, not productive, um, happens periodically during the day, sometimes correlates to high activity levels but not always).
The thing is, as I understand it, it is not the remedy that is doing the healing, it is the person's body.
This is correct.
So it is just finding the magic match (both remedy and amount) that is needed.
yes, and no. You need a similar enough remedy. In acute prescribing there are often more than one that can fit the bill. It's not as needley-in the haystack as finding the one *perfect* match.
Interesting about the picture changing so rapidly that it looked like it wasn't working, but really was. I believe that has happened to me. I find that it is not unusual for my remedies to change and on occasion that can make me feel uncomfortable.
Why? That's what acute illnesses often do! The remedies are a catalyst, really that's it. They stimulate your body to move. Often acute illnesses have different stages (remedies are even written this way...hepar sulph is a "final stage" remedy.) don't feel skittish about following the illness. However if things keep shifting and feel very changeable it's always good to keep pulsatilla in the back of your mind!
I think partially for me is I am working off of two approaches and I don't have full confidence in either. My intellectual knowledge of homeopathy is still new, (although I do think I am over the very new newbie hump), so I sometimes have a hard time trusting myself. And then, I haven't always had success with my pendulum, so when my responses aren't clear I tend to self-doubt. Yet, so often my pendulum is so crystal clear. Intellectually it totally made sense that my body needed colocynthis yesterday and today and I received a pendulum yes and then a no soon after, and then I didn't seem to respond and hours and much thinking and tries later sepia seemed to be the answer but then not clear and just no relief. (plus there were so many other trials inbetween.)
Remember too it's all about how you ask. I can ask about a remedy and get a yes, ask about two more and then get no on the first. Is my testing method inaccurate, is my question inaccurate, or was that remedy a good fit, but then I tried something better? There is no "gold standard" for muscle testing...but the right remedy generally gets tested more than once to make sure that it's still the best choice. And, again...I just don't have fear around this. It doesn't need to be so stressful. Try the remedy and if you need to change it, it's okay.
It just seems to be so much harder to find a remedy when you are really sick.
Ummm, yes. For anyone!
I remember sitting up in bed with H1N1, and little vials scattered around me, holding my necklace and just crying. I couldn't figure it out. But this is why I need to figure it out now, so I have more tools when times are bad.
We've been going through so many illnesses recently. It has been so bizarre. This experience seems to be going into a spiritual journey for me. I don't mean religious, nor it is having me question my beliefs in general. Yet, there seems to be a reason for this. I feel the need to embrace this journey and not just slog or grumble through it. hmmm are those FEs speaking? I've started pondering things beyond my regular boundaries, including EFT. I feel like this is the time for my introspective learning. Also, maybe it is just needed for me to get deeper into this energy medium.
it opens new doors in the consciousness...I think for everyone who does experience anything that works that logically shouldn't. It is about discovering that spiritual side and experiencing that we are more than just matter. It's a total shift.
Recently I asked about muscle pain due to illness. (I had been really uncomfortable and not able to find a solution). When I finally found the response on this thread, I was beyond the illness, so I didn't feel the need to go beyond surface knowledge -just info to tuck away until needed later. So now what is happening? I am experiencing muscle pain in my neck and shoulder so intense that I can't talk above a whisper and I am so thirsty and hungry but I can't swallow well.
speaking of bryonia....
(ok I took an aspirin an hour ago because I needed to eat and relax my muscles - so I am not currently hungry or thirsty.) So I feel like I am having this challenge and I keep on hitting an energy brick wall. Sometimes it is challenging in a fun and exciting way - like a puzzle. I just feel desperate now, and that desperation must be clouding things. Talking this through, and having some currently physical relief, is helping me find my peace.
I just started tapping Thursday night. Could that being stirring things up? Is it a coincidence that soon after I tapped for a mild asthma reaction, I started experiencing pain?
nope. but keep tapping. You can tap on what comes up, too.
I just tested positive for sepia. I am going to commit to it for a while and see what happens.
eta: interesting about sepia. I have a sore throat due to my muscle stuff, but am also currently ending a cold (kali bi -like). Sepia description seems to be combining my muscle pain with my cold. - well I will see what happens.
absolutely it can! homeopathy is really never just a band-aid. IF it helps in the instance but it always comes back and with little improvement, then you need a deeper remedy. However if it addresses the issue well then you'll see just what you are seeing...fewer episodes further apart and with less severity. It was a good remedy. I've no doubt that everything else you have been doing helped it along though.
