Love Your Symptoms
Love your symptoms for they are the road map to your health. The homeopath looks for the story the symptoms are trying to tell us about the nature of the illness being experienced. Homeopaths look at symptoms in context of the whole person to understand what the symptoms are pointing to.
Homeopaths do this because they know that the symptoms are guiding lights that show the nature of the inner disturbance. A mysterious pattern underlies the symptom image that may not be considered logical. It is something more poetic, like the stories that a dream tells.
The job of the homeopath is to decipher the underlying pattern of the symptoms to see what substance in nature it is pointing to, just as it is the job of the dream interpreter to understand the significance of the dream symbols. or to help the dreamer understand their inner meaning, so that he has a better understanding of himself.
So please love your symptoms. Without them it would be like a night without stars, and we would be like a ship in the ocean trying to navigate our way home, but we have no star light to guide us.
May your symptoms point the way to your healing, and may you find someone who can read the language of your symptoms to help you achieve the gift of good health.
Wishing you health and happiness,
