What does late fall have to do with feelings of victimization, you may ask? Well, perhaps you didn’t think to ask, but after reading our articles, you will. Around the first week of November the state of mind for Malaria looms in our human consciousness. Here’s a snippet:
“The state of mind of malaria is one of irritability, and to an even greater degree than in psora. It also surpasses psora in its degree of fatigue, as well as pessimism. The core feeling in malaria is of being victimized, which departs from psora’s feeling of simply not having enough (energy, time, money, etc.). In the classic infection of malaria, the typical carrier is the mosquito, and if you think of any time you’ve ever felt ‘bugged’ or even ‘victimized’ by mosquitos, then you will start to have a sense of this feeling in the malaria miasm. Malaria may feel overly sensitive, either physically or emotionally, and that their environment is hostile towards them.”
Why do the Genetic Miasms (the roots for chronic disease) correspond to the seasons you may ask? Great question. The answer lies in the evolution of human consciousness. Our Jeff has provided part of the answer here:
“…the progression of these diseases has a general tendency from the most superficial organs and functions, down into the deepest ones. Clearing all of these miasms gives everyone a tremendous increase in their total state of health, and really gets at one of the primary goals of the “high school” level of the Heilkunst curriculum, namely to fully restore the function of the etheric body, and to restore its full capacity for pulsation and ultimately in “digesting life”.”
As he mentions, the order is important, from the more superficial (skin as per Psora) to the deeper issues (bones as per Lyme). There was a book entitled ‘Rediscovering Real Medicine’ written by a Swiss Physician, by J.F. Elmiger, MD. He took Dr. Hahnemann’s foundational teachings of chronic diseases and through scientific observation recognized that each Miasm seemed to loom in his patients most profoundly at certain junctures in the year related to the Equinox or Solstice at the change in seasons.
Since we are creatures of nature, subject to natural laws, it would make sense that we’d be governed by these same laws. Specifically, our diseases are layered based on the ‘law of succession of forces.’ See more here if you’re interested: https://arcanum.ca/2018/10/11/what-is-sequential-therapy/
This month’s blog articles are related as one of the other chief remedies for victimization is Staphysagria. In fact there is so much to learn about this state of mind that we’re working on writing a whole book about it:
Until this book is completed, we’re furnishing you with these articles, a bird’s eye view into anger, powerlessness and victimization and why the fall, when the lifeblood of the trees and flowers retreats back into the earth for another season of dormancy affects you. As feeling bereft and victimized is a function of disease, not whole robust or restored health.
To solve this state of bereftness and victimization, we often have to treat both states in our patients, especially as it relates to fall. When all these ingredients show up in their symptom picture, we act accordingly. Then the patient’s inner nature will feel the power to transcend what the diseases Malaria and Staphysagria have beguiled her to believe; she’s bugged and victimized beyond repair. On the other side, there is more liberty, a juicier taste of freedom.
