The Healing Sciencies have been both an art and a science for Humanity. That much progress has been made by reasoning and an experiment based approach cannot be disputed. But allopathy does not have all the answers!! An allopath is little different from a soldier in his approach to holistic healing. Healing should take into account the entire organism and then treat it.not just the physical component. Both homoeopathy and energy systems like pranic healing have this idea in mind when looking at a patient. Unfortunaly both have not yet achieved mainstream status as yet. But then, both are very young. The ancient subject of the hindus on healing is called ayurveda and is quite comprehensive but takes years to master under the carefull guidance of a guru.
At the outset let me mention that "Homoeopathy is Prana in a bottle!". Dr.Hahneman's bold approach led him to formulate the basic principle of homoeopathy: 'Similia Similibus Curanter'. Dr.Scussler's studies led to the discovery of the decimal titratution. Dr.John Kent and Dr.Boerike have made immeasurable contributions and have compiled both a comprehensive materia medica and a repertory. But a study of standard text books like Gray's anatomy, Guyton's physiology, Baron's psychology, Biochemistry and allopathic pharmacology are also necessary to give a complete picture prior to prescribing homoeopathic remedies based on Classical provings.
A retired principal of a reputed homoeopathic college introduced me to the subject. In a few years I was able to study about 850 remedies in various potencies starting from mother tincture all the way to CM. Besides this my guru, Shri P.Venkateswara Sharma was kind enough to teach me pranic healing as outlined by Master Sawakashi. The first thing I realized was that homoeopathic potencies were basically forms of prana!
During the days of experimenting with homoeopathy a striking incident occurred.I was using "CROCODILE 6X", a little known remedy made by a company in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh. I had imbibed it for a few days, when one day I was sitting in a small restaurant and having tea. A family came along and sat at the table next to me. They were a grandfather, a mother and her six year old daughter. The child was staring at me and I realized that somebody was looking at me. So I turned around and a few moments later while I was still looking at her, she turned to her mother and said : " CROCODILE!!". Her mother calmly nodded her head in agreement. The grandfather, obviously besotted with his grand daughter immediately said " and u are a penguin!", laughing happily. I was thunder struck! I wondered if I had heard right. But I could still hear them talking clearly.they were just one and half foot away from me. I left in a dizzy state.
The Theosophical society's books ( Col A.E. Powell) had mentioned about the higher bodies of living creatures and I was familiar with my guru's research on the pineal gland. From these I was able to deduce :
That this was the ultimate goal of homnoeopathy: to set man free once again!
A healer should not concern himself only with physical disease but with all the problems besetting his patient.in all walks of life: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual etc. Classical homoeopathy's approach to treat the patient on the basis of general and peculiar provings of the various remedies will prove to be a limitation when seen from this view point. Biochemic Remedies are one step closer to the goal..but a comprehensive system will use traditional allopathic knowledge of the body's working, classical homoeopathy's emotional and mental symptoms of the higher bodies from astral all the way to the causal, mother tincture and biochemic decimal potencies for physical and etheric body deficiencies and a deeper understanding of the individuals belief system, based on the individual's horoscope like ayurveda does.
So the general approach should follow a pattern as follows:
As I have previously pointed out using classical homoeopathic approach only, is a limitation.understand that at the 200C potency and higher the persons belief system can be changed resulting in permanent cure ..even from onerous karma! Hence a vast repertoire is unnecessary.
It is said in the ancient hindu writings, particularly the "Pursha Sukhta" that 22 sticks of sound fire constitute the Kala Purusha. Hence a repertoire of well chosen 22 remedies is usually sufficient to cover the entire spectrum facing the healer! Ocassionally it may be necessary to use others too! The 22 remedies will depend on the healer's horoscope and need not be same for every healer.
The following remedies have been used by me regularly:
Alfa Alfa, Sterculia,Arnica,Jaborandi,Jasmine,Brahmi,Cantharis etc.
From the above it should be obvious that all people are pretty much similar and that a small number of medicines can be used to bring about a stable condition reasonably rapidly.Remedies at the higher potencies are to be used with utmost caution as the results are not immediately visible.Remedies at CM potency affect the star/Soul it self.and the concept in many circles that finding that single medicine will automatically correct all defects is not completely true.
I prefer Dr.John Taylor Kent's view that each individual is composed of many layers and that each layer has to be PEELED OFF /CORRECTED/RATIONALISED before treating the next one.It is true that the Star/Soul will have to be finally treated but finding that single remedy normally takes years of effort.and without adequate preparation is futile. This concept also proves the Christian theological idea of "Original Sin!".
Understand the individual as composed of an inner source of light, which is covered by many layers/sheaths, each of different densities and individual properties. So when all have been correctly rectified, the light shines forth!This proves the Hindu Concept of "Antar Atmane""god as the innermost soul-soul of the soul"is true! See Osho's book "The sun behind the sun behind the sun".
It should also be understood that the healer will not be using the same remedies all his life..as he himself progresses, his inclination for using particular remedies will keep changing.particularly relevant will be the vimshotari dasa, progression and the aspects to the natal horoscope by transiting planets..ie gochara!.
The periodicity of homoeopathic medicines makes it easy for compliance of treatment for the patientbut sometimes in men it may not be present..then it is easy to establish it by piercing the left ear and wearing some ear ringi.e The so called "IDA nadi " is activated and the periodicity of the woman in the man is used to achieve the final goal automatically.
It should also be remembered that the last 100 years have seen an explosion in the physical sciences and organic and biochemistry are not lagging..today allopathy has a vast range of medically usefull chemicals which have not been converted and proved as per homoeopathic principles..so consider this an invitation! A CALL TO ARMS! Death to ignorance!.
The concept of purity makes so much trouble to people on the path of sadhana.what is required is not purity per se but a neutral standpointlike brazing of metals by an oxy acetleyene torch can be done with three flames..
This neutral flame is literally the state of consciousness to be achieved..when done it initially leads to net zero and over a period of time to gross zero of the karma phala.
Caution: Only a rectified,stable individual with correct birth data, should take up homoeopathic proving.Otherwise the results would be murky and useless!
A final worda good homoeopath considers no man his enemy and treats all with the conviction : "Forgive Them FatherThey know not the truth".
