What Makes Me a Good Homeopath

What Makes Me a Good Homeopath


What makes me a good homeopath is that I am not the doer. I take the case, I type the notes, I do the repertorization. I make the charts. I attempt to analyze and make sense of all the data. All of this is just the work.

The final step is where I surrender doership to something mysterious, unknowable, unfathomable within myself that takes over. That something in me is inseparable from that something in the client and something happens. I have no idea how it happens, only that it happens, and I am so happy that it does.

I feel good because the work is accomplished and accomplished well. My clients are happy because they have been prescribed a good remedy by a conscientious person in alignment with a transcendent force that knows what is needed, and healing and love transpire. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

The question may be asked, “Why do I not stop at the first step, which is the accomplishment of the work.” The reason for this is that life and experience have taught me that the rational mind is extremely good at thinking it knows something, and creating supporting arguments for its theories, ideas and beliefs. The truth, however, is that the mind has only a limited view. It loves its own cleverness and its ability to make judgments and form opinions.

All of this is well and good, except that believing something to be true does not make it true, and supporting false arguments does not make them correct.

This is why I trust intuition far more than the reasoning mind. Surrendering the ego’s assumptions and presumptions to a higher power with humility, love, trust and faith, is, from my experience, the best way to come to truth, and be able to spread health and love in the world.

Note regarding blog comments:

Dear Friends,
I appreciate your visiting my website and reading my articles and taking the time to write your comments. I welcome your comments and will post them if it looks like what you have to say will be helpful to others. I may not write a comment back, but will let the article itself present my point of view.

I am no longer responding to people’s questions regarding personal health matters on my blog, because it becomes stressful for me due to the volume of such questions that I get.

Also there is no way I can actually answer these questions properly without familiarizing myself with the person’s  health.

For anyone who is interested in working with me, please complete the appropriate questionnaire and send it to me. This way I will know that you are ready to move forward with a consultation.

I wish you the best of health.

Peace be with you,

Deborah Olenev CCH RSHom (NA)

  1. Dear Anandkumar,
    Thank you very much for writing. I was very moved by reading your words. This is the greatest way to practice homeopathy: totally surrendering your ego to the higher power and being an instrument of the Divine will. I do not trust my ego with anything, even how much garlic to put in a soup. I ask God or Atman for guidance on everything that I do. I would be terrified to practice homeopathy without that assistance.

    Paraphrasing Anandamayi Ma, I am just a little girl who knows nothing. You show me the way.

    Your words “That something in me is inseparable from that something in the client and something happens. I have no idea how it happens, only that it happens, and I am so happy that it does” are appealing and impressive because that is the truth.

    I have experienced the same in my practice in homoeopathy. I used to wonder that with my little knowledge, my prescription works wonders, because they are not truly mine but are through me.
    May God Bless entire humanity.
