Dear Friend and Reader:
Some time during writing your Light Bridge astrology reports, I started reading about a relatively new method in homeopathy, called Sensation. Since it’s had such a deep influence on this project, I thought I would tell you a little about it.
The Sensation method was created by my favorite homeopath, Rajan Sankaran. For those not familiar, homeopathy is a branch of medicine discovered in the early 19th century that uses the law of similars: like heals like. Someone with a bee sting, or something that feels like one, can be successfully treated by a remedy made from bees.
Modern homeopathy is deeply psychological and works very well to help us unravel complex issues — the kind that therapy can barely ever get near. It explores and addresses the connection between a physical ailment and the mental and emotional states that surround it. Often, those mental and emotional states give the clue how to heal the physical symptom. Homeopathy is the original holistic medicine. You might have asthma, but how do you feel when it’s acting up? That feeling will give the clue to the correct remedy.
We are living incredibly complex lives right now, moving very quickly, through both personal and world events that we often don’t understand. We live in a time when medicine cannot help most of what ails us. It’s too rigid, and along with being insensitive to actual human experience (a condition not helped by the industry’s obsession with profits and maddening political involvement).
Homeopathy is driven by the quest to help people and to understand the nature of human reality. It’s beautiful that way.
