Pierre: You told me on the phone you are in great pain, please tell me about it.
Pierre: Could you tell me more about the sensitivity?
Pierre: Please, tell me more about the suffering.
Pierre: Please tell me about being horrified.
Pierre: Talk to me about fighting.
Pierre: Could you describe these feelings a little more, please.
I present this case because the intensity of the physical pain matches the intensity of the emotional and mental level. This is common but we never quite see it that way. It is generally “lost in translation” as I call it. Lost in translation means that the inter-intensity as well as the inter-connectivity of the PEM is not acknowledged within the connected whole. At best, in the alternative world there is a disconnected whole where one can make lifestyle changes, often with great efforts to achieve limited results. With homeopathy it is not the case. We do not ask people to make changes. We approach this matter as the changes should happen from the inside out. The inside is where the strength really is. In that sense, a frail looking body with a strong life force on all levels is better than a big body with a frail Vital Force.
The spontaneous choice of words is always very interesting because they are the only way to transport us into the interior. Here she uses the word “vicious” and “strong stabbing pain.” These words are very telling of the nature of the disorder. As the case goes on, we’ll see how important what “lost in translation” really is. “Lost in translation” makes me think of fishermen who used to use lobster for bait until they realized how good it really is and how much people liked it once introduced to it. It is all around us but we just don’t notice it.
As we see over and over in these cases, seemingly disconnected features are threaded into the condition with no apparent logic and yet it leads to the root that brought all of it up in the first place. Here she is talking about her extreme fear of rats and the potential rage in her. The question was about “suffering.” An open question and letting her describe the web of her suffering takes us straight down the Golden Thread all the way to the root of her ill.
What is really great about this case is that the intensity is beautifully well reflected on all levels: Physical, emotional and mental.
There is nothing quicker to restore health than the right remedy acting in similarity upon the Vital Force.
