Not a lot to report this week – lots of sitting in class and a little sitting on the beach. It was interesting that Vithoulkas chose Cancer as his topic to discuss this week and we had several cancer cases we observed.
In summary Vithoulkas feels that Cancer is caused by either or both
1. external pollutants like medicines, chemicals and food additives
2. internal stress and a feeling of not being at peace with self.
He sees it affecting many spiritual, highly sensitive people where they are not supported by their bodies. They are mentally and emotionally healthy, but their body says good bye.
Prevention consists of having clean air and ecological (organic) food and live in a way that brings peace, security and true balance in life. Express anger and disappointment, don’t hold it in.
I can look back and see how I have been unwilling to the rock the boat and express my opinion or clearly state my needs. I would then felt a lot of pressure. It created a division and internal argument about what to do – so being consistently clear and honoring of my needs, even if it is not easy, is my goal.
I purchased Vithoulkas’ second volume of The Science of Homeopathy and am enjoying it. It is a discussion of the twelve levels of health we are born with and move to and how that affects the prognosis when treating someone with homeopathy. The first volume is a classic I have really enjoyed over the years and I am enjoying the second.
This is from a restaurant I had lunch with a friend, then went down to the beach during our afternoon break. The water was shallow and warm. There was shade and lounge chairs available to sit and read on the beach. It was lovely afternoon.
