I do hope you enjoy receiving these newsletters-- I enjoy sending them out to you! I am considering what more I can be providing for you through these monthly contacts. I will continue on next month with the "FAQs", as I have in the last two newsletters. But this time I thought I would present something just a wee bit different.
As we are beginning to see the seasons change once more, I thought I would simply share with you a few thoughts on "life" itself and how we see this reflected in everything around us. This is homeopathic thought-- which is based on quite anient principles and philosophies as well. And it fits right in with wellness and wholeness. -
This is fundamental, foundational "stuff"-- I think it's great to always remember this! Life is warmth, heat, movement. Death is coldness, stillness. Life can also be seen in wetness, death in dryness.
Now, I am not one who likes to generalize. There are many exceptions to almost every rule. Are there warm things which are dry? Cold things which are also wet? Of course, there are.
But there is nothing born that isn't, in some way, warm and moist-- and can move. Nothing that dies that isn't, in some way, cold and dry-- and quite still.
Now, try expounding on what this all means and implies. Take, for example, the case of illness. What is a fever, but a raising of the body's temperature-- raising the temperature to help the body fight off something that is negatively affecting your life. Heat can and does destroy disease producing pathogens. It helps rid the body of illness. A fever is something promoting of life! Also, think about what is the first thing that happenes when your body is exposed to coldness. Your fingers get stiff and cold-- so do your toes. And even your nose and ears. Why is this? In short, it is because your body is realizing the temperature is too cold for life in a comrotable, homeostatic state to be sustained. So it goes into a kind of "preservation" mode, restricting blood flow to areas determined to not be essential, focusing it-- therewith, the life-sustaining heat-- on the internals. In other words, your vital organs remain warm and full of life, but the extremities are left to be cold and, if allowed to remain as such, will die.
Please allow yourself to continue thinking on from these points-- see what more you can think of!
Homeopathy is a wonderful, holistic medical approach that works gently with the body to help it do what I firmly believe it was designed to do, and that is to be well! What a wonderful, ennobling thought!
As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
Have a wonderful month!
