Although difficult to prove in a way, I do believe that the healing of one individual creates an energy shift in others. We see this most easily in the shifts observed in the proximate family of a patient, but we can see this also on a larger scale. I have at least 2 cases where an orphan patient, immediately following the remedy, was contacted by his birth family living on another continent, after several decades of searching for their roots without any success. This clearly indicates an effect on a larger scale, not just the immediate surroundings of the patient, and this effect is bound to reflect some healing occurring at the level of the birth family.
When someone heals, I believe that something in the group heals, because we all participate in the energetic make-up of the universe, so the shift in one's energy is bound to be experienced by others, without limitations of time and/or space.
An interesting related question is whether each successful or accurate prescription of a remedy decreases the need for that particular field of consciousness to express itself through human experience. If that were the case it might help us understand why some homeopaths are perceiving fewer cases of the well known “polycrests”, and working on perceiving the fields of consciousness of up-til-now little known remedies.
I will say that it has been clear to many of us that some groups of remedies have appeared when there was a new need for humanity. I can think for example of bird remedies a few years back, then radioactive remedies, and now lanthanides. This evolution indicates that humans are facing new challenges at the level of the vital force, and that we need to continue investigating homeopathic answers to these challenges, and maybe this is the area where previously little-known remedies become important, and become relatively big remedies. Whether polychrests or other well-known remedies are less required or less recognized by homeopaths, I cannot say this. I believe that there will always be an important role for these remedies and I see them daily in my practice. In my opinion they constitute the backbone of our prescribing, and we simply add additional options to this backbone with newer remedies in order to be able to face new challenges and modern diseases.
How stable is our macroscopic world?
New world views emerges from the deep collective subconsciousness and appears here and there as theories like monistic idealism. Matter is based on mind and not the other way around. So we know today with 100% certainty that atomic processes are unstable if we direct our attention to them. Then it even depends on our intention on what kind of result we get. This was for example proven by Dean Radin and colleagues in experiments performed at the Princeton University. A true random number generator reacts on the intention of an “operator”, throwing out numbers which reveals negentropic patterns.
George de la Warr was a engineer who worked on the very controversial field of “radionics”. He created a camera which produced images by intention. Well, the camera worked almost only for him, or at least he needs to be present. But the photos was like a radiography, revealing very interesting details.
This experiments cannot be reproduced with a digital camera. De la Warr used the classic silver plates in his radionic camera. Maybe his mind imprinted in some way the image on the silver emulsion. But for sure the water involved in the development process contributed to the strange phenomenon too.
So how stable is our macroscopic world?
It depends on so many factors. And I doubt that the limit is only the atomic level.
The Pauli effect
The Pauli effect is a term referring to the apparently mysterious, anecdotal failure of technical equipment in the presence of Austrian theoretical physicist Wolfgang Pauli. The term was coined using his name after numerous instances in which demonstrations involving equipment suffered technical problems only when he was present.
The Pauli effect is not to be related with the Pauli exclusion principle, which is a bona fide physical phenomenon named after Pauli. However the Pauli effect was humorously tagged as a second Pauli exclusion principle, according that a functioning device and Wolfgang Pauli may not occupy the same room. Pauli himself was convinced that the effect named after him was real. Pauli corresponded with Hans Bender and Carl Gustav Jung and saw the effect as an example of the concept of synchronicity.
Methods to reproduce the Pauli Effect
One method to reproduce the Pauli Effect is to create a device which is in a very unstable mode, like a true random number generator and to protocol with a software each deviation from normal randomness. A open minded person will produce exceptional patterns. Someone who has the habit to throw his own world view away in a regular manner, will produce hot patterns. A software programmed to track such anomalies will begin to ring the alarm bell and blink and so on. But a closed minded man, which denies any mind over matter phenomena, will have also a effect on the device: it will produce an absolute absence of anomalous patterns, which is indeed not normal, because every true random number generator should produce here and there some “patterns” which divert from “normal” 50:50 chance. Interesting fact is that this absence of anomalies is reflected also in the absence of ideas in this people. In homeopathy this is known for the remedy Alumina, which is known to produce a hyper-pathological skeptic type of mind set. Nihilism is the end-state of Alumina personalities.
Another method is to take a homeopathic remedy of the Lanthanides series. This elements produces a state of mind which triggers anomalous errors in electric devices. Maybe the true random number generator will even break down and stop to producing any numbers. It’s a interesting phenomenon known by many homeopaths who proved this remedies for themselves. Neodymium or Praseodymium can alter the consciousness in a manner which let break down electronic devices like computers or cell phones in proximity. The law of energy conservation is not broken by this phenomena, but it reveals that there was already a weakness in the device and it should have broken sometime in the future, but the probability when it happened was altered. This preserves the law of energy conservation in a elegant manner.
All kind of altered states of mind can trigger “strange phenomenas”. The quantum state is leveled up to a more macroscopic level. Don’t forget the fact the our mind alters biological process inside our brain cells, producing synchronic firing patterns of the neuron cells.

Scientific work is in it’s essence art. The investigation on a certain topic starts in a similar way as a poet describes a emotion, very simple, but deep, with one question. And this one question may even not be expressed in words, nonverbal. It’s a desire to know and to dive into the deep. Some people are artists, prone to investigate the subconscious mind, or the collective subconsciousness, and they come back from their journey with something new. That is exactly the same for a scientist.
In homeopathy, especially in element theory of homeopathy, scientists as also artists relates to the silver series of the periodic table of chemical elements. Only few relates to gold or lanthanides series, and very very few to the actinides.
But in Bach flower remedies therapy the point of view on scientists and artists is different, or there is lacking the big revolution like it happened in homeopathy a decade ago.
So which remedy can help the people who suffers of the typical health problems of this category?
Those who are quick in thought and action and who wish all things to be done without hesitation or delay. When ill they are anxious for a hasty recovery.
They find it very difficult to be patient with people who are slow, as they consider it wrong and a waste of time, and they will endeavour to make such people quicker in all ways.
They often prefer to work and think alone, so that they can do everything at their own speed.
Many scientists are almost too quick in thoughts. But art and science needs a lot of time. Being impatient can cause headache. All kind of illness related to the gall and liver meridians can then be the result. Anger is a common symptom.
Those with fixed principles and ideas, which they are confident are right, and which they very rarely change.
They have a great wish to convert all around them to their own views of life.
They are strong of will and have much courage when they are convinced of those things that they wish to teach.
In illness they struggle on long after many would have given up their duties.
I know this remedy as a typical “burn-out” remedy. It helps to relax and to make one step back in order to see the whole picture. The worst thing that for a over enthusiast scientist can happen, is that after a long research, after spending a lot of money and time the expected result is not achieved. Then a depression can be a result, manifesting as a “burn-out” syndrome. The scientist then can even become skeptical, yes even doubt his own good results achieved in the past. I can imagine that many pseudoskeptics once was former over enthusiast scientists, but something traumatized them and they retreat and loosed their faith in their ideals.
For those who do not take full advantage of observation and experience, and who take a longer time than others to learn the lessons of daily life.
Whereas one experience would be enough for some, such people find it necessary to have more, sometimes several, before the lesson is learnt.
Therefore, to their regret, they find themselves having to make the same error on different occasions when once would have been enough, or observation of others could have spared them even that one fault.
Chestnut is the one remedy which is given to students with difficulty in learning. They are distracted by other things and find it difficult to concentrate.
Those who have suffered much mentally or physically and are so exhausted and weary that they feel they have no more strength to make any effort. Daily life is hard work for them, without pleasure.
Scientists who are workaholics could take this remedy. For many scientists a 12 hour work day is almost normal, because they love what they do for living. But it’s important to learn to stop at a certain point and care for family, friends and other important things in life.
For those who cannot prevent thoughts, ideas, arguments which they do not desire from entering their minds. Usually at such times when the interest of the moment is not strong enough to keep the mind full.
Thoughts which worry and will remain, or if for a time thrown out, will return. They seem to circle round and round and cause mental torture.
The presence of such unpleasant thoughts drives out peace and interferes with being able to think only of the work or pleasure of the day.
Very like a overdose of coffee the White chestnut’s type of person’s brain is running 120% even when it’s time to go to sleep. And this is a problem! The thinking is then ineffective, many thoughts, but no real insight or aha-effect. The best ideas comes when one is relaxed, almost thoughtless. Then White chestnut can help to go back to a more calmer mind.
These was just a few examples of how Bach flower remedies can help a brainy, geek, nerd, scientist, artists, strange guy … humor helps too! And don’t forget to exercise!
What happens when you visit a homeopath? This animation helps to explain what happens when you visit a homeopath and receive individualised treatment. This is what to expect when you consult with a professional, registered homeopath.
Language is the most basic and essential tool of homeopaths. The anamnesis is the best source of information. And despite of that, some homeopaths fall back on primitive tools for analysis like radionics. According to Jan Scholten most homeopaths are the “Lanthanides series” type, persons who search inside themselves, try to be independent, or at least they can be found on the “Silver series”, people who loves sciences and search for new insight, experts in communication. But there seems another kind of therapists who has not reached that level. Let’s see how we can apply element theory of homeopathy on the therapists.
Hydrogen to Silicium series
Normally they have no interest in healing arts and much less in homeopathy.
They work, work, work, real workaholics. Repetition is their core essence. Imitation, learning from others. They need instructions, feedback from some kind of machine (radionics, biofeedback, meridian measurement) but without to understand the underlying principles. They are able to understand new concepts, but they need a teacher, a guru. Learning from books is rather difficult, only possible with a teacher. They can be found at every seminar for beginner, learning the basics of the Organon, the basics of the materia medica. They do not perform a homeopathic proving on their own, only in a group. In analyzing a case they rely heavily on a software with an expert system. Thinking out the box is not an option, they live inside the box, the fabric. Some of them even use complex or combination remedies and other compromises in the worst case. New therapy systems which are labeled with some kind of trademark under the control of a franchise could unfortunately attract them. Usually they confuse homeopathy with herbalism or other naturopathic therapies.
Positive: they love to work in a team, work hard and long, asks questions, asks for help, accept criticism very well
Negative: they don’t think much on their own (even dogmatic or too skeptic like alumina) and their learning progress is rather average
They are attracted to homeopathy because of it’s interdisciplinary requirements in science, medicine, language (linguistics), psychology, and so on. They are ready to learn new methods, acquire new skills. They love books and they are autodidacts. They search for a teacher only to achieve a certain level of skill faster. They understand that language is the most powerful tool and they do not rely on software or the repertory too much, because they are aware that these are just tools. They even regard teachers as “tools“. With the time they create their own system, write their own books and become a teacher on their own. They love to communicate new ideas to their colleagues or patients, organizing seminars and congresses. They are rather creative and have a inclination to self-presentation (like a actor).
Positive: (almost) independent, autodidacts, creative
Negative: don’t ask for help and could appear a little arrogant, don’t like criticism
Their profession can be felt as a “burden”, heavy and they have sometimes the delusion that without them the world would stop spinning. It is like they behave as a prophet, someone with a divine mission. They listen, but it’s like they are in some kind distant, isolated from the patient. But they do their very best for their patients. They regard their patients as their “children”, they hug them and they care very much. Maybe they get more responsibility with the time. They lead a school for homeopathy, publishing house for homeopathic literature, manage congresses for homeopathy and so on. It’s all about a greater responsibility.
Positive: A warm quality of interest and very responsible like a father
Negative: They can retreat and isolate themselves, becoming very depressed, too much responsibility, never asking for help (which can be dangerous for themselves) … or they become very arrogant because they fear to loose their higher status
They go on a lonely journey in their inner world. They love independence and stillness. During this calm moments they find new and very deep insights, which are very helpful for the entire homeopathy society. But to find this calm moments becomes more and more difficult. It is like they need to find all fragments of themselves first and reunite them (like Arnica which is related to the Lanthanides). Their task is “inner unity“, the magnetic field which reorders the particles to one whole. But when they finally reach their goal, when they come back from their (inner) journeys, they have a lot to tell and we have a lot to learn from them. Whatever they find, it was buried in the deep and it needs a lot of time to digest. They can recognize invisible morphic fields, even without the powerful tool of language, because they look inside and recognize the patterns.
Positive: deep thinkers, innovative, they see the whole picture (of the entire family or even society in relation to the patient) and their therapy can be very effective
Negative: they spend too much time with their inner world, they have no time for their patients, they get easily bored with “superficial cases” (or what they may regard as superficial)
Like the Lanthanide series, the Actinides type of therapist is able to recognize the invisible morphic field, the invisible force which influence entire societies. But in contrast to the Lanthanide the Actinides are also able to manipulate this vast fields for their own purpose. A rare kind of person, because they may die young or they will not have any interest in helping others. But if they decide to help and to become a therapist, they are the most powerful. They seem to have endless energy, bright in many fields, from art to science and so much more. They reach insight so much more easily as the Lanthanide type. When Lanthanide needs a journey, the Actinides needs just a nap.
Positive: powerful healers
Negative: no interest in the individual person, manipulative in a very subtle way
Apotemnophilia is sexual arousal based on the image or fantasy of one’s self as an amputee. It can be associated with Body integrity identity disorder (BIID) in which otherwise sane and rational individuals express a strong and specific desire for the amputation of a healthy limb or limbs.
Body integrity identity disorder (BIID, also referred to as amputee identity disorder) is a psychological disorder wherein sufferers feel they would be happier living as an amputee. It is related to xenomelia, “the oppressive feeling that one or more limbs of one’s body do not belong to one’s self”.
Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric or fly amanita, is a mushroom and psychoactive basidiomycete fungus, one of many in the genus Amanita. Amanita muscaria is noted for its hallucinogenic properties, with its main psychoactive constituent being the compound muscimol.
Perceptual phenomena such as macropsia and micropsia may occur. Macropsia (also known as megalopia) is a neurological condition affecting human visual perception, in which objects within an affected section of the visual field appear larger than normal, causing the person to feel smaller than they actually are. Macropsia, along with its opposite condition, micropsia, can be categorized under dysmetropsia. Macropsia is related to other conditions dealing with visual perception, such as aniseikonia and Alice in Wonderland Syndrome (AIWS, also known as Todd’s syndrome).
Agaricus muscarius should be considered in homeopathic therapy of such conditions like Apotemnophilia or Body integrity identity disorder.
– Kingdoms in Homeopathy
Most literature in homeopathy describes the ill state, but to find a description of how it feels to become healthy again is very rare. Case reports concentrates more on the symptoms, the repertorization and analysis, but only 5% describes the effect of the remedy when the person experience the healing effect. I encourage homeopaths to interview their patients on their journey to a more healthier individual person. How did their point of view change? Did even their world view change? How deep is their breath and how does this affect their thoughts? Do they now recognize the interdependence of all life forms? Did something change in their spirituality and relation to other people? This are only few examples, but the patient will benefit from this interview too, because they will become more aware of how healing occurs.
For homeopaths Jan Scholten’s work about elements and plant group theory is worth more than gold.
