Teachings on the
Medicine Buddha Sadhana
Ven. Thrangu Rinpoche
"If one meditates on the Medicine Buddha, one will eventually attain enlightenment, but
in the meantime one will experience an increase in healing powers both for oneself and
others and a decrease in physical and mental illness and suffering."
— Lama Tashi Namgyal --Whether or not we have a very strong motive to attain Buddha hood, we all desire these sorts
of relative objectives, so deity meditation provides tremendous incentive for the practice of
dharma medicine.
This is all possible with meditation because of the special quality of the vajrayana, which
takes enlightenment as the path, rather than seeing it merely as a goal. Through the three
processes of abhisheka, which ripens the mental continuum; oral transmission, which supports
one’s practice; and the teachings, which liberate, one is connected directly to the enlightened
state transmitted by the guru and the lineage. Thereafter, when one practices or merely brings
to mind those teachings, one is instantly reconnected with that compassionate primordial
awareness, and this constant reconnecting then becomes one’s path, bringing with it the rapid
purification of mental defilements and the rapid accumulation of merit and wisdom. The
recognition of this connection is the uncovering of one’s own wisdom. If it goes
unrecognized, it still exists in the practitioner’s mental continuum as a seed, which will
gradually ripen according to conditions."
Reasons for a practitioner to choose this kind of practice: "We might think that fundamentally
we are practicing the Medicine Buddha in order to benefit our own bodies, whereas the
motivation of bodhicitta is the wish to benefit all beings. But in fact there is no contradiction,
because, in order to be effective in benefiting other beings, we need to accomplish an
excellent Samadhi or meditative absorption; and in order to accomplish that, together with the
insight and realization that it brings, we need to have a stable practice. In order to have a
stable and profound practice, we need to be physically and mentally healthy or comfortable,
because by being comfortable in our body, and comfortable in our mind, we will be free of
obstacles to diligence in practice and free of obstacles to the cultivation of meditative
absorption. So therefore, we are practicing the Medicine Buddha in order to attain states of
mental and physical health or balance, not merely for our own benefit, but for the benefit of
others as well."
***
"The primary technique in the meditation consists of imagining ourselves to be the Medicine
Buddha, conceiving of yourself as the Medicine Buddha. By replacing the thought of yourself
as yourself with the thought of yourself as the Medicine Buddha, you gradually counteract
and remove the fixation on your personal self. And as that fixation is removed, the power of
1

2
the seventh consciousness is reduced. And as it is reduced, the kleshas or mental afflictions
are gradually weakened, which causes you to experience greater and greater well-being in
both body and mind."
***
"It is through regarding oneself as the deity that defects are gradually eradicated and qualities
gradually revealed. The primary technique of visualization is to visualize ourselves as the
deity, because the potential to transcend our problems is innate rather than external to us."
***
"We supplement the visualization of ourselves as the deity with visualizations such as
imagining the actual wisdom deities themselves dissolving into ourselves again and again, by
means of which we receive their blessing. Sometimes we visualize the deity in front of us,
separate from ourselves, thinking that rays of light from the deity’s heart engulf and pervade
us, granting the blessing of the deity. And sometimes we visualize that rays of light, which
embody the blessing of that deity in front of us, strike all beings, removing their obstacles,
increasing their longevity, wisdom, and so on."
***
"The practice of the Medicine Buddha comes primarily from the uncommon tradition of the
vajrayana, which means that the transmission of the practice is done using three processes
called the empowerment, which ripens; the instruction, which frees; and the reading
transmission, which supports. The function of empowerment, the formal ceremony or ritual of
empowerment, is to introduce you to the practice and to the process of visualization and so
forth, which will make up the practice. The function of the instruction, which frees, is to give
you complete access to the practice by means of telling you literally how to do it— what you
do with your body, what you say with your speech, and what you think with your mind. The
function of the reading transmission, which supports, is to transmit the blessing of the lineage
of the practice which serves to consecrate or bless your practice in the form of sound. Because
the lineage has been transmitted as the sound of the words of its transmission, when the
reading transmission is given to you, you simply listen to the sound and think that by doing so
you receive the blessing of the lineage."
***
"With regard to the empowerment, you should understand that the Medicine Buddha practice
is not solely a vajrayana practice. Like the practice of mahamudra, it is a combination of
vajrayana [tantra] and sutra. For example, while we could say that mahamudra is primarily
taught in the vajrayana, it is also found in certain sutras, such as the Samadhiraja Sutra, and so
forth. In the same way, this practice of the Medicine Buddha is a combination of what the
Buddha taught about the Medicine Buddha in the sutras of the Medicine Buddha and in
various tantras. Because it is connected with vajrayana, it is most appropriate to receive the
empowerment to enhance the practice; but because it is also connected with the sutras, it is
acceptable to do the practice without the empowerment as well."
The reading transmission or lung for the Medicine Buddha practice tells what the practitioner
should actually be doing at that point in the liturgy, and what the various symbols and
symbolic actions mean.
The liturgy begins with a supplication of the Medicine Buddha and his retinue, including the
holders of the lineage of this teaching, in order to invite the awareness of and to receive the
blessings of the deity and the lineage.
3
The invocation of the principle Medicine Buddha begins with these lines:
You are endowed with an oceanic treasury of qualities and merit;
by the blessing of your inconceivable compassion
you calm the suffering and torment of sentient beings.
I supplicate you, Light of LAPIS LAZULI.
The description and commentary on the arms and hands points out how they symbolize the
Medicine Buddha's mastery of both physical and spiritual aspects of healing:
The Medicine Buddha has two arms: his right hand in the mudra of supreme generosity holds
an arura. His left hand in meditation mudra holds a begging bowl.
His right hand is extended, palm outward, over his right knee in the gesture called supreme
generosity. In it he holds the arura, or myrobalan, fruit. This plant represents all the best
medicines. The position of his right hand and the arura which he holds represent the
eradication of suffering, especially the suffering of sickness, using the means of relative truth.
Sickness can be alleviated by adjusting the functioning of interdependent causes and
conditions by the use of relative means within the realm of relative truth, such as medical
treatment and so on. The giving of these methods is represented by the gesture of the
Medicine Buddha’s right hand.
His left hand rests in his lap, palm upward, in the gesture of meditative stability or meditation,
which represents the eradication of sickness and suffering— and, indeed, the very roots of
samsara— through the realization of absolute truth. From the point of view of either relative
truth or absolute truth, the fundamental cause of sickness and suffering is a lack of
contentment and the addictive quality of samsara. Therefore, to indicate the need for
contentment, in his left hand he holds a begging bowl.
Visualization is much more than merely wishful fantasy:
"More important than how many deities you visualize is to understand what you are doing.
And most important is to understand that by visualizing yourself as the Medicine Buddha you
are not pretending to be something that you are not, and that by visualizing the Medicine
Buddha and his retinue in front of you, you are not pretending that they are in a place where
they are not. By definition, Buddhas are omniscient. Whenever someone thinks of them,
brings them to mind, or supplicates them, they are aware of it and respond with their
compassion and blessing. In the final analysis, the situation is identical to their actually being
present anywhere they are thought of. Therefore, it is always appropriate to regard a Buddha
that is present in one’s mind as actually being present in front of one. When you think that the
Medicine Buddha, together with his retinue, is present in front of you, it is really true that they
are.
Visualizing yourself as the Medicine Buddha is also appropriate, because your fundamental
nature— what you truly are— is Buddha nature. Buddha nature is essentially the potential to
attain awakening. At some point in the future you will attain the same awakening or Buddha
hood as the Medicine Buddha himself. By visualizing yourself as the Medicine Buddha, you
are assuming the appearance of what fundamentally you are even now and what manifestly
you will be upon your awakening. It is to acknowledge this truth that you assume the aspect
4
of the body, speech, and mind of the Medicine Buddha, which is, therefore, entirely
appropriate.
"If you can visualize clearly, it is best to do all of this very slowly and gradually. While you
continue to say the mantra, you think that rays of light emerge from the self-visualization, go
to the front visualization, and then from the front visualization outwards to the pure realms,
proceeding gradually and slowly. Especially when the blessings of body, speech, and mind
rain down upon and dissolve into you, you can do the visualizations in sequence: first,
visualizing the blessings of body raining down, without being in any kind of a hurry and so
quite distinctly; and then visualizing the blessings of speech and then the blessings of mind. If
you find that the visualization is extremely unclear, if you wish, you can do it all at once. But
if you do it gradually and slowly, you will find that you will get a much stronger sense of the
blessings actually entering into you. By taking your time with the visualization, you will
develop real confidence, a real feeling of the blessings entering into you."
A special type of visualization when the main point is the actual alleviation of sickness:
You can visualize yourself as the Medicine Buddha, if you wish, but the main focus is to
actually visualize a small form of the Medicine Buddha, no larger than four finger-widths in
height, in the actual part of your body that is afflicted. So if it is an illness or pain in the head,
visualize a small Medicine Buddha in he head; Visualize the Medicine Buddha in that place,
and think that from this small but vivid form of the Medicine Buddha rays of light are
emitted. These rays of light are not simply light, which is dry, but liquid light having a quality
of ambrosia. This luminous ambrosia or liquid light actually cleanses and removes the
sickness and pain— whatever it is. You can do this not only for yourself, by visualizing the
Medicine Buddha in the appropriate part of your own body, but you can do it for others as
well by visualizing the Medicine Buddha in the appropriate part of their body or bodies. The
radiation of rays of light of ambrosia and so on is the same.
This can be applied not only to physical sickness but to mental problems as well. If you want
to get rid of a particular type of anxiety or stress or depression or fear or any other kind of
unpleasant mental experience, you can visualize the Medicine Buddha seated above the top of
your head and think in the same way as before that luminous ambrosia or liquid light emerges
from his body, filling your body and cleansing you of any problem, whatever it is.
5
Bhaisajyaguru Tathagata,
you who shine in the eastern realm,
May we know your healing purity
which cures all sorrow, pain, and ill.
In your land of Lapis lazuli,
your power revealed through meditation:
You dispense your medicine of wondrous Dharma
that sentient beings might know Relief.
Never are we apart from your Pure Love,
though clouds of karma oft’ obscure our sight.
Help us walk the Path through suffering and its cause;
the end: Nirvana, ceaseless joy.
May peace of Heart pervade all beings,
without, within, and through boundless time and space.

Introduction
In my fascination for homeopathy I have always strived to experience more and more of it.
It has always been clear to me, that through experience the knowledge grows and takes its
place in a lot faster and efficient way. I love reading about remedies and substances but often
I can not image exactly how that information would come to life until I have had a similar
experience myself or with someone or something around me.
The reason why I have chosen to write about a trituration and therefore to go into the
experience is because I did not only want to read about something and leave the rest to
imagination. To me a trituration or a proving covers the totality of what I find essential to
know in homeopathy.
If I look at it from the four main pillars of homeopathy; I can relate to these in the following
manner:
•
•
•
•
Minimum dose: it gives me a little of something, not too much of one thing that would
enough to make me tired of it.
Like cures like: it gives a bit of thinking and a bit of feeling; it gives me what I need to
keep motivating myself, it is a form of healing, if you like.
Totality: it covers all the subjects in homeopathy, the proving, symptom registration,
symptom translation, pathology, repertory, writing the Materia Medica and finally
understanding the substance as a whole.
Individuality: a proving meets my necessities in this process where I can learn all of
that necessary to be a good homeopath.
I can only say that these two years of triturations have been a very exciting and most of the
time pleasant journey, even if at times, I cursed myself for having taken part in something so
dynamic. Sometimes it was hard to keep up with the experiences. During the trituration of
Lapis lazuli one of the most rewarding experiences was the collective painting we did, in
which some essential themes of the remedy became clear to us. Please view the painting on
the previous page.
I do recommend everyone to do this, even if it is just once in your life, it will certainly
broaden your views. I hope my text encourages you to gather strength or even just curiosity to
take on such adventure.
I dedicate this work to all the brothers and sisters around the world that have taken on the
challenge and I thank my mentor, Alize Timmerman for her passionate guidance during this
journey.

Chapter 1
1. Rocks and Gem stones: an introduction to formation; history, religion & medicine
1a. Transformation cycle of rocks and formation of gems in term definition :
2
Magma: Molten rock material that forms igneous rocks upon cooling. Magma that reaches
the surface is referred to as lava.
Igneous rock: A rock formed by congealing rapidly or slowly from a molten state. This
forms sediment. These are generally very hard. These are liquid lava rocks underground.
Igneous rock = born of fire. It’s a solidified rock.
Sedimentation: is the process of deposition of mineral grains or precipitates in beds or other
accumulations. Here comes sedimentary rock from.
Sedimentary rock: A rock formed by the accumulation and cementation of mineral grains
transported by wind, water, or ice to the site of deposition or chemically precipitated at the
depositional site, built layers on layers. Many years of slow build up. Fossils clear prove
sedimentary - here we look for history of rocks, made gently enough to preserve living things.
They are easy to tear apart. Cooling or breaking down process. Impressions and experiences
built up over a longer period of time. This is the opposite of igneous rocks.
•
Shale or mudstone is made of tiny particles of clay. It forms in the sea bottom.
Metamorphic rock: These are what happen when sedimentary and igneous rocks become
changed, or metamorphosed, by conditions underground. The four main agents that
metamorphose rocks are heat, pressure, fluids and strain. These agents can act and interact in
an infinite variety of ways. As a result, most of the thousands of rare minerals known to
science occur in metamorphic ("shape-changed") rocks.
The fiery element is important in all the gems, fire melds down to basic form. The heat can
bring about sudden change.
•
•
•
Marble: lime stone turns into marble.
Gneiss: (pronounced nice) is a typical metamorphic rock type, in which a sedimentary
or igneous rock has been deeply buried and subjected to high temperatures and
pressures.
Migmatite: it is partly melted. This is an extreme example of metamorphism, like
putting gneiss through a taffy-puller.
Crystals (gems) are formed when igneous rocks (born of fire) and sedimentary rocks (sand
stone that contains water) meet. The result of this meeting is nothing like the original
substances, a big transformation takes place.
Crystals3: are homogenous solid formed by a repeating, three-dimensional pattern of atoms,
ions, or molecules and having fixed distances between constituent parts.
A crystal is a mineral, especially a transparent form of quartz, having a crystalline structure,
often characterized by external planar faces.

Characteristics of crystal structures:
• Crystals can’t be seen with the naked eye.
• Crystals are formed through tension and pressure.
• Andesite: have small crystals very small volcanic.
• Plutonic: have bigger crystals.
• Pegmatite: have very large crystals. Where most crystals form, hot magma comes in
contact with water (fluid) then crystals start to form. Brought up by slow cooling.
Rock identification tables
4
These tables will help you identify almost any rock you're likely to find. First determine
whether your rock is igneous, sedimentary or metamorphic. The quick way to tell is:
•
•
•
Igneous: little texture or layering; mostly black, white and/or grey minerals; may look
like lava.
Sedimentary: layers of sandy or clayey rock (strata); tends to split along layers;
mostly brown or grey; may have fossils and water or wind marks.
Metamorphic: layers of light and dark minerals (foliation), often wavy; various
colours; glittery from mica.
Then start in the left column of the appropriate table and work your way across. Follow the
links to pictures and more information. If you don't find a match, try another of the three big
types.
Grain Size has two values: "coarse" grains are visible, and the minerals can usually be
identified using a magnifier; "fine" grains are invisible to the naked eye and cannot be
identified with a magnifier. The cut-off is about 0.1 millimetres, between sand size and silt
size.
Hardness has three values: "hard" rock scratches glass, which usually signifies the minerals
quartz or feldspar (Mohs hardness 6-7 and up); "soft" rock does not scratch glass but scratches
fingernails (Mohs 3-5); "very soft" rock can be scratched with a fingernail (Mohs 1-2). All
igneous rocks are hard.

1b. Gem stones in history and religion.
Gem stones have been present throughout history. They have always been a symbol of wealth
and high social status, especially during the middle ages and after. For instance diamonds
12
were only to be worn by aristocratic families in Europe; diamonds were the first symbol of
engagement and eternal love. In Asia gem stones were only meant for highly important people
like kings and emperors. Rubies were especially appreciated in India and Jade in China and
Japan.
Long before the middle Ages, during the Egyptian empire, Roman and Greek empires gems
had more of a spiritual character. Amulets made of gemstones were used in religious and
spiritual ceremonies. The Assyrians considered Lapis Lazuli to be sacred. The stone brought
the blue of the sky and the light of the Gods to earth.
In Egypt they often used Carnelian gems, which they called the blood of Isis (the Egyptian
Goddess of nature). The Carnelian amulet was placed at the throat of a corpse during
embalming. It was thought to instill Isis’ protection on their journey through the underworld.
Also were the Egyptians to write the 26th chapter of their “Book of the dead” on Lapis Lazuli,
which was used for religious carvings. One should always hold and rub the Lapis Lazuli with
one hand while reading that particular chapter of the book.
Also in the pre- Colombian cultures gems were cherished, emeralds where especially
appreciated by the Muzo Indians, who controlled the emerald mines of what is now known as
Colombia.
Gems are said to posses some metaphysical properties and therefore superstitious believes
surrounded the gems, as people were convinced that wearing amulets made of some of these
gem stones would keep them from being harmed. So the Holy Roman Emperors wore crowns
set with opals, which were thought to protect them and their families.
In Europe amber was worn as protection against witches and warlocks and even ill luck.
Sailors wore amethyst to protect them and take them to safe harbor, as emeralds were thought
to exorcise demons.
5
In more recent religions like Judaism “Declaration” was a holy diamond with some negative
aspects. If people erred in their worship or private lives, the stone was reputed to turn murky.
This murky changed was a predictor of pestilence and death. If the stone turned red, they
would die by the sword. If the diamond was bright and clear, the Jewish people of Israel knew
they were free from sin and could celebrate each of their religious festivals without fear.
In Christianity the Ruby symbolized the blood of Christ. The emerald denoted peace and
happiness given by God and the diamond was symbolic to fidelity to Christ and God, so the
popularity of wedding rings made of diamonds.
Lapis Lazuli is the color of the Medicine Buddha. The Medicine Buddha is invoked for
physical and Spiritual Healing. Bhaisajya-guru, Lapis Lazuli Radiance Buddha, Master of
Healing, taught the “Four Treatises on Medicine,” which form the basis of the Tibetan healing
arts. His colour is the blue of Lapis Lazuli. The begging bowl in his left hand is made of lapis
and contains the elixir of immortality. His right hand makes the gesture of giving and holds a
branch of myrobalan, the yellow fruit of which is said to cure all illnesses. To invoke healing
power it is sufficient to call the name of Medicine Buddha. With this, if one is not
immediately healed, one can count on improved karma in one’s next lifetime. About Medicine
Buddha, please see pages previous to Index (page 7).
1c. Gem stones in ancient medicine and today’s therapies.
5
Metaphysical means literally, beyond the physical realm, beyond that which we can realize or discover with our five senses. It also means a
branch of philosophy which studies the “being ness” or inherent nature of reality.
13
Unfortunately little is known about the use of gems in ancient medicine. The only known
complete Materia Medica that it is said to have described over 200 gem stones and their
healing powers is that of Dioscorides , which is mainly a book about herbal medicine, in
which over a 1000 plants are described.
6
Some brief general information about the use of gems as medicine in ancient times follows.
During cholera plagues in ancient Egypt, slaves that mined malachite were usually unaffected,
since malachite is a basic copper carbonate. Copper helps rheumatism, asthma, and colic. A
powder of Carnelian was though to stop wounds from bleeding
Eastern physicians thought the emerald could cure epilepsy, remove both mental and body
pain, stop vomiting, purge the blood, act as an antidote to poison and bites from wasps, bees,
and scorpions; helped diabetes, was a remedy for jaundice, and treat leprosy when ground
finely and applied as a poultice.
In 500 A.D., Chinese doctors used finely powdered jade in fruit juice for the relief of
heartburn, asthma, and diabetes.
Diamonds were also used as a poison. The stones were ground into powder and put into the
enemy's food and drink. Many prominent people's deaths were attributed to diamond
poisoning.
The use of gem stones today are more energy orientated, this means that the gems are not
usually crushed and prepared as a medicine but they are either worn or placed on to strategic
body parts to enhance harmony of the charkas during the healing sessions and after. This is
believed to stimulate the body’s own healing powers by balancing the chakra energy.
Balancing the chakra energy means balancing the own body’s energy therefore enhancing the
body’s own healing properties. Gem stone therapy can be used either as an independent form
or therapy or as a complement to massage, Reiki or other alternative healing techniques like
Tibetan Gong therapy .

In Ayurvedic medicine triturated gems have been used as remedies and beauty products for
thousands of years. Other methods like wearing so called “astrological jewels” are believed to
have a uniquely powerful way to mitigate and nullify the unfortunate effects of past wrong
actions (negative karma), as described in Bhattacharya’s gem therapy.

Dioscorides: Pedianos Dioskourides, also known as Pedanius Dioscorides, probably lived between 40CE and 90CE in the time of the
Roman Emperors Nero and Vespasian. A Cilician Greek, he was born in Anazarbos (now Nazarba, near Tarsus) within the Roman Empire of
the day, and today in Turkey. A learned physician, he practiced medicine as an army doctor, and saw service with the Roman legions in
Greece, Italy, Asia Minor, and Provence in modern-day France.

Chakras: In some belief systems, it is believed that the human body has seven energy vortexes located in different areas of the body. These
vortexes are located at the base of the spine, the navel, the solar plexus (diaphragm area), the heart, the throat, the third eye (area between the
eyes, centred on the forehead), and the crown (top of the head). Every chakra has its own properties in the form of emotions or organs in the
body. An unbalance in the chakra can lead to disease in the correspondent organ or emotional/mental state of the person (emotions).

Chakra therapy is widely used in India (Ayurveda) and in other eastern therapies like Reiki (Japanese healing technique).

Tibetan gong therapy: a form of relaxation therapy in which gongs are played in a certain way.

In homeopathy some gems have been proved to be used as remedies. Dr P. Sankaran proved
Diamond in the 1950’s in which the remedy was made of triturated diamond. The first
proving of this gem stone was done by Dr. Fincke in 1879, the proving was conducted by just
holding a large diamond in the prover’s hands.
10
In 1994 Jeremy Sherr proved the diamond with a remedy made from diamond dust, in Peter
Tumminello’s proving the remedy used was made of diamond immersion, in which the gem is
not crushed but immerged in water and the water is then used to make the homeopathic
remedy. Other gem stones like pearl, amethyst, and Lapis lazuli have been proved and used in
the same way. There have also been meditative provings carried out on gem stones, from
which the acquired information may be a little less acurate, and therefore considered to be less
reliable by most homeopaths.

The method used by homeopathic researchers to define the symptom profile of a particular substance. Most provings were done and
recorded in the late 1800's, although in the last ten years many homeopathic researchers have begun proving new substances. Provings are a
very specific type of research and usually follow a standard protocol.
They are carried out in a number of ways depending on the type of homeopath carrying out the trial. This can involve anything from
following Samuel Hahnemann’s strict protocol to a person taking the remedy and meditating on the effects.
15
1d. Gem stones in homeopathy - common themes of gems as a collective
Rare, special, beautiful and magic
Stand apart from common substances, are very attractive. They are very hard to find.
Durability, last very long.
They served to heal and to protect from illness and associated with power, natural of psychic
powers.
Transformation and opposite forces
They are product of transformation, appear when lower and common rocks become beautiful
and magical.
Opposing forces: the fire element is very important in all gem stones. Fire changes things in
their basic form. Excess of energy = YANG; a lot of hot energy. It can bring about sudden
changes. The opposite of this is the water element, feminine, sedentary; a breaking down
process. YING: Water – Cold / YANG: Fire – Heat.
Light and darkness:
Light coming out of the darkness: come out of mess of minerals, come from deep places.
Magic is in what they do with light. Gems are translucent.
Irreconcilable forces and transmutation, completely opposite, how can they live together?
Darkness and death VS Light – new awareness – letting of & rebirth
The darkness of imprisonment; shackled by negativity, culture, relationship, situation. The
person lives in the underworld.
The results of a death experience - a journey through Hades (underworld of the psyche).
Leaving something behind, letting go of something to make the change/transformation.
Darkness = old patterns. Light new perspective, new way of looking at things.
Darkness of old crystallized belief systems about self and the potential and light of a new
perspective, new awareness.
Most of gems > Light and < by the darkness.
Go into darkness to find the light.
Related to the journey into darkness
Faith in the process of life, in the whole process: Low self – esteem, low confidence.
Loss of faith is the deepest – deep lost of sense of the self.
Faith in self = SELF – connection to spirit and the divine.
Death of ego and exclusivity - Transition from ego to universal feeling – not exclusive, it is
all connected. It means taking down the big egos.
Result = New life, new self – giving birth and babies. (Signature for renewal after the death).
There may be some greed and money- issues about wealth.
16
Family & structure & relationships
Minerals are elemental compounds in geometric and fixed relationships = Working
relationships, class relationships, political relationships.
Aluminum and Silica (are common in the gems). In the periodic table these are the primary
substances for relationships and their development.
Seamless bonding and integrity of relationships; highly developed in a healthy way.
Relations bring order and structure in someone’s life.
The issues around family alignments are mostly seen in the Amethyst, Golden topaz, Lapis
lazuli, Black opal and Ruby.
Order and perfection
Uniform structure: they look for basics and structure in their lives; the search for the perfect
order. Often perfectionism is an issue: “this is how I am supposed to be”.
Believe systems that we have as human, family, religious.
Animal/instinctual VS enlightened attitude
What you want, deep inside feeling and what you are expected to do. They have a sense of
being a very aware human being; a universal feeling, if you like.
Violence, sexual energy, something like a very fix attitude, f.i racism and the other side is
enlightened attitude about these things.
They can go from one extreme of hate to a complete integrated relationship.
Fever – Obsession – Passion
Fever = obsession, passion, feel very deeply about something, usually something about
themselves. It can eventually be turned around to something about the environment.
They want to achieve something higher. There are high possibilities and leadership.
1e. Common themes of the gem remedies psyche

Abusive, betrayal, violence and protection.
Search for beauty and perfection.
Boundaries and light, energetic boundaries – out of the body (Amethyst and Gold
topaz) or grounded feeling.
Durability strength and hardness. (When you go through a big or difficult process you
need to be strong).
Geometry order and structure. They are very structured people and sense of order,
more than ordinary minerals. Geometric images, squares, triangles.
Heat and pressure (Diamonds and Rubies) in your life, sense of imprisonment and
pressure feeling. Passion.
Serious and humorous or silly happening, completely letting go. Comic things.
Humorous dreams, desire to play practical jokes on people. Even in very depressive
remedies, black humor kinds. Situation is so heavy that is silly.
Imagery and symbolism: animals, faeces and toilets, flowers, volcanoes, gods, saints,
masters and holy men, sun and the moon.
Intellect, memory, focus and concentration. Loss of memory (Diamond) or ability to
focus and concentrate. (Ruby)

Generals relations to the periodic table:
In general gems relate to series 3 and 4 in periodic table.
The Silicum series are relation orientated, family and friends, communication, puberty
and teenage years. Many gems contain Aluminum and Silicon.
The Iron series are work, duty and task orientated, highly perfectionist. Other themes
are routine, order and rules, as well as control. Task and control and being put to the
test. All come out of a transformation process. These metals (Titanium to Cobalt)
often taken up in the gems. Safire (Titanium) Ruby (Chromium)

2. Introduction to Lapis Lazuli
2a. Physical properties of Lapis Lazuli and its chemical composition
Lapis lazuli is a rock composed mainly of the following minerals:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Lazurite: Sodium Calcium Aluminum Silicate Sulfate Sulfide Chloride
Hauynite: Sodium Calcium Aluminum Silicate Sulfate
Sodalite: Sodium Aluminum Silicate Chloride
Noselite: Na 8(AlSiO4)6SO4?
Calcite: Calcium Carbonate
Pyrite: Iron Sulfide
Lapis lazuli is a rock composed of a mixture of several different minerals including lazurite,
huaynite, sodalite, noselite, calcite and pyrite. Diopside, augite, mica and hornblende may
also be present in small amounts.
Lapis lazuli usually occurs in crystalline lime stones as a result of contact metamorphism.
Lapis lazuli is characteristically recognized by its colour. It yields H2S gas (smells of rotten
eggs) when subjected to HCl. The presence of pyrite can distinguish natural lapis lazuli from
many (but not all) of the lapis simulates.
2b. Lapis Lazuli historical information and uses
The name Lapis lazuli comes from the Persian word lazhward meaning blue, in allusion to its
colour. In ancient times, lapis lazuli was known as sapphirus, which is the name that we use
today for the blue corundum variety sapphire.
Lapis lazuli has been highly valued for many thousands of years. The most famous locality
for fine quality lapis lazuli is the same ancient deposit high in the mountains of Afghanistan
where it was originally mined at least 6000 years ago. Lapis lazuli was often made into
jewellery, carvings, amulets and talismans which were believed to have occult powers. It was
19
used by the ancient Egyptians in many religious ceremonies, and was often used as an
inscription stone for various passages from the Book of the Dead, most important being
Chapter 26th.
Lapis lazuli was one of the stones in the 'Breastplate of Judgement' of Aaron, described in the
Bible (Exodus: xxviii, 15-30). Lapis lazuli was said to dispel melancholy and depression, and
to cure recurring fevers. It was also said to impart ancient knowledge, and the wisdom to use
it.
Up until the nineteenth century, Lapis Lazuli was ground up and mixed with oil to produce
the deep blue-green pigment known as ultramarine which meant literally beyond the sea, as
the Lapis Lazuli was brought from far away by ship. Since 1828, this pigment has been
produced synthetically from a roasted mixture of kaolin clay, sodium sulphate and charcoal.
Lapis Lazuli today is still a very popular lapidary material. It is made into a variety of handcrafted objects such as carvings, spheres, beads, cabochons and other jewellery items.
Lapis Lazuli is imitated by a number of methods typically involving the use of dyes on a
variety of natural rocks and synthetic materials. Sometimes dyes are used in combination with
the crushing and reconstitution of lower grade Lapis Lazuli.
2c. Lapis Lazuli and its metaphysical properties & healing powers
Lapis lazuli is said to enhance one's awareness, insight and intellect. It is also said to impart
ancient knowledge and wisdom, bringing peacefulness and self-acceptance. It helps people to
rid themselves of influences of past situations that still cause trouble in the present. It liberates
from compromises and restraint. It takes away fears and blockages of the emotional realm and
helps to work through denial.
Lapis Lazuli is said to help cure depression, insomnia, recurring fevers, vision and hearing
problems, and disorders of the throat, lungs and immune system.
It is also associated with self-confidence, truthfulness, openness and inner tranquillity.
The astrological sign corresponding to Lapis Lazuli is the sign of Sagittarius. The qualities of
Sagittarius include: change-loving he governs long-distance travel, matters of the higher mind
(philosophy, religion and the law), cultural pursuits – and having a good time! It is a fire sign,
so Sagittarians are positive, forthright communicators who love travelling – although you do
tend to be restless and hate to take orders.
2d. Links between stone and the trituration proving of Lapis Lazuli
A cutter will make a face when cutting the Lapis Lazuli stone, because as soon as the stone
comes into contact with the cutting wheel, it will emanate a typical, slightly foul smell. Many
of the provers experienced strong and sharp smells during triturations and after, proving list of
symptoms page 29.
Lapis Lazuli was used in Egypt to write a few chapters of “The book of the Dead”. At higher
levels of the triturations there were visions and associations with Egypt as well as death and
the dead, proving list of symptoms page 34.
20
Before it was possible to reproduce the ultramarine colour artificially the paint made of Lapis
was used in many works of art. Many portraits of the Virgin Mary are coloured with this blue,
for instance Raphael’s “Alba Madonna”. During the proving, after taken a few drops of Lapis
Lazuli C40/4 the figure of the Virgin Mary appears in channelling sessions and songs, page
65.
The metaphysical properties of Lapis Lazuli according to gem therapy are associated with
self-confidence, truthfulness, openness and inner tranquillity, as well as helping people to rid
themselves of influences of past situations that still cause trouble in the present. It liberates
from compromises and restraint. All of these things have been strongly experienced by many
of the provers during or after the triturations.
2e. A description of the components of Lapis Lazuli according to the periodic table
The main component of Lapis Lazuli is lazurite (25 to 40 percent). Lazurite is a
feldspathoid silicate mineral composed of sodium, aluminium, silicon, oxygen, sulphur and
chlorine. Because these are the main components of this gem, we can assume that their
properties, as described in the periodic table of Jan Scholten , should be clearly found in the
proving symptoms. If not all, at least some of the elements mentioned, to check this I have
listed some of the themes and properties of these elements, at the end I present a short list of
the themes I think should certainly be found in the trituration proving of Lapis Lazuli.
12
13
14
Chloride (from Chlorum) Aluminum, Silicon, Sulphur all belong to the 3rd series or the so
called “Silicium series”.
In this series the main themes are relationships, family, you and the other and the relationship
between these two. Also language, communication, learning and playing, as well as
presentation to the public are all present in this series. The teenage years are the time of life
related to this series, which makes sense since puberty is the time when it is all about learning
from relationships, with parents, friends, the time when we start gaining interest in the
opposite sex and relations become the core of our lives. Also what others think of you and the
image you present is important in those years. Learning and playing to learn in relationships
are part of the formation of human teenagers.
Muriatricums: Chlorum and Natrium Muriatricum
Chlorum: the essence of this remedy is the idea that care and attention is all or nothing. They
are hypersensitive to this. The slightest cause can make them scream and shout that nobody
takes them into consideration. Their feeling is that nobody cares about them. The reality is
that they need so much nurturing that other give up trying to fulfil their demands.
The other side to this are the ones who never ask for any attention. The choice of this people
is to manage them selves and deal with their own things.
12
Lazurite is a popular but generally expensive mineral. Well-formed, deep blue crystals are rare and valuable. It is more commonly found
massive and combined with other minerals into a rock called lapis lazuli. Class: Silicates. Group: both Sodalite and feldspathoids.
13
The feldspathoids are not a typical mineral group like other mineral groups that are related by structure and chemistry. Their relation to
each other is due primarily to their relationship to the feldspar group of minerals. Feldspathoids are low silica igneous minerals that would
have formed feldspars if only more silica (SiO2) were present in the original magma. The aluminum to silicon ratio is nearly 1:1 in most of
the feldspathoids but is closer to 1:3 in most of the feldspars. As would be predicted, feldspathoids are not found in igneous rocks that
contain primary quartz.
14
Jan Scholten “Homeopathy and Minerals”
21
Chlorum is located at Stage 17 of the periodic, according to Luc de Schepper , these elements
have consumed themselves in the process of great, often misplaced activity. These are
consumed with anger, irritability, indifference as well as morose and sad feelings.
15
In the case of Chlorum this may mean that he has put all the effort on getting the attention he
needs, and exhausting himself by doing so, not achieving his goal, he becomes irritated and
angry as well as suffering from grief.
Nat-m needing people can be very spontaneous and naïve, and initially cheerful. Because they
tend to see things through pink glasses they are prone to big disappointments, giving room for
grief and forgetting all about the happy times. Natriums are located in the first stages when
learning to communicate and relate to others is still an issue, they are not very handy with
relationships, and this usually leads to rejection and isolation after being hurt.
They are alone, lonely, forsaken feeling and still wanting to be alone.
Muriatricum also stands for mother.
Physically we see mainly headaches, great thirst and emaciation.
16
Aluminum
The Stage 3 on the periodic table stands for alternating behaviour because of a struggle. There
is apprehension about the future, a social struggle, difficult fitting in. There are feelings of
guilt (anxiety as if a crime has been committed). They are sensitive to criticism. It is possible
to see improved mental functions as well as confusion.
In Alumina we see confusion of thoughts versus clarity. There is internal hurry and feeling of
being hurried, at times with the sensation that time passes too slowly.
In relations Alumina struggles with domination and a desire to be independent, this result in
alternating behaviour. They can not free themselves from the chains of dependence.
Physically we see general dryness and itch of the skin, problems with gastrointestinal tract,
slow digestion and bloating.
Silicon – Silicate – Silica element
Silicates – which contain the Silica element, are all about family, image and timidity.
Stage 10 of the periodic table, freshly formed ego, still unpolished (meaning that we be
influenced), and narrowed perception of things, they can be quite stubborn. These are people
hardened on the outside, still vulnerable on the inside. They are obstinate in their opinions but
often do not share them to avoid hurting others or being criticised.
They have fixed ideas of delusions. Intolerance of contradiction,
We see varying degrees of haughtiness and egotism.
15
16
Luc de Schepper “Homeopathy and the Periodic Table” Volume 1
All lists physical symptoms from: Frans Vermeulen “Prisma – The Arcana of Materia Medica Iluminated”
22
Physically we see tremendous chilliness, easy perspiration, very thirsty, suppuration,
glandular affections and headaches.
Sulphur
Stage 16 of the periodic table is about the good old memories. It is about the loss of power
and still remembering these times. The more power lost, the more compensation or
acceptance is needed. If adaptation is impossible, life seems worthless, and one might as well
commit suicide.
There is a lack of reality; in order to be convincing about whom they are, still passionate is
body and spirit. They have the delusions about still being in power. Theorizing about
everything, about the power they imagine or remember, the influence wealth, respect, sexual
powers. They act as if they still were in power, especially at home, with family.
They tend to be antisocial, do not ever listen to anybody, they always want to be the centre of
attention or complete outsiders.
Sulphur focuses in religion and philosophy. He is still being great at this, wanting to invent
the something special and being unique at this. Sulphur has clear ideas and is mostly selfsatisfied.
Physically we see burning pains and sensations, many skin symptoms, slow, lazy and always
tired. Sulphur desires sweets and spices.
Oxygen belongs to the “Carbon series” or 2nd series
The carbon series are about “Ego”. The individual forming himself; it is about self-worth, Iweakness, lust and possessions. The age in which these elements of the personality are formed
is childhood.
Oxygen is located at Stage 16 in which decay is the main theme. The possible feeling of
Oxygen at this stage is one of selfishness, being used and abused, feeling the victim,
indignation and debt.
According to Jan Scholten , the issues of Oxygenium are around finding balance between
taking and giving. They are afraid of losing their material things. It can be so extreme that
they become greedy and avaricious. The opposite can be also true, complete indifference
towards material goods.
17
They feel they are worth it and others need to see this. Because of this, they tend to claim
attention; they feel that they did not get what they deserve. If they do not get this, feel angry
and insulted. If this goes any further, the feeling is that of being abused. They feel others have
taken away a lot; they have lost their possessions or self-esteem. After this there may be an
attitude of being the victim, they complain about everybody and feel they have been done
wrong.
17
Jan Scholten “Homeopathy and the Elements”
23
Iron and Calcium belong to the 4th series or the “Iron series”
The main themes in the Iron series are task, work, duty, ability, perfectionism, order and rules,
control, being observed and exams, failure, guilt, crime and being persecuted.
Calcium stands at the second stage where being observed, questioned and evaluated are
important. In Calcium we see especially many fears and anxieties, fear of being observed and
timidity. It is a great deal for them what others think, they are insecure and very sensitive to
criticism.
Physically we see coldness, gland affections, heart problems, stomach problem and thyroid
problems.
Iron stands at eighth stage. At this stage force, struggle, concentration, endurance are some of
the main themes. According to Luc de Schepper, this stage is about the struggle to establish a
balanced ego. These are fighting, battling remedies. Delusion of being at war, alternating
behaviour because of a struggle, apprehension about the future, social struggle, difficult fitting
in. There is anxiety as if a crime had been committed, feelings of guilt. They are very
sensitive to criticism.
Physically we see hammering headaches, vomiting, and diarrhoea and circulation problems.
If we assume that the contents of this gem give part of their characteristic to the remedy made
of Lapis Lazuli we can expect problems related with the following:
a.
b.
c.
d.
e.
f.
g.
h.

relationships and problems with these
grief/disappointment and introspection
need for attention, forsaken feeling
instability – alternating states
ego problems
religion, philosophy, spirituality
feeling of being used or abused
difficulty with sharing things
battling and struggling, possible feelings of guilt
The most prominent physical symptoms that we in these elements are:
j.
k.
l.
m.
n.
coldness – heat - circulation
skin problems – dryness and itch
gland affections
headaches
thirst
It is though very important to remember that even if Lapis Lazuli is made of these elements,
the combination and the presence of these elements in the stone are unique and therefore
should also be able to produce other unique and specific symptoms for this stone. A more
detail analysis of this can be found throughout the proving data and under the chapter about
“Differential Diagnosis”.

3. The trituration proving of Lapis Lazuli in the Netherlands
3a. The conduction of the trituration
The trituration of Lapis Lazuli was conducted under the lead and supervision of Alize
Timmerman from December 2004 until June 2005 in The Hague, the Netherlands.
The proving was conducted with a group of about 20 provers, 19 women and just 1 man, ages
28 to 58 years. The substance was unknown to all provers up to the fourth trituration except
for the supervisor and the Institute assistants, provers 6, 15 and 18. Prover 3 knew from
intuition what the substance was but did not share it with anyone until it was made public.
The first trituration of the proving was conducted on December 8th 2004, the second one took
place on January 26th, the third on February 1st, the fourth on March 16th 2005 and the fifth
trituration took place on April 1st 2005. In May of 2005 some of the provers also took a single
dose of Lapis Lazuli C40/4, see page 61. Not all the provers did all the triturations for
different reasons, the main one seemed to be some sort of fear for what was about to come,
which was not usual in other triturations.
Some of the provers chose to start or finish some of the triturations at home (Prover 1, 2, 3,
16, 17, 19). After every trituration we would have group meetings in which all the
experiences were shared.
The method used in this proving was that of trituration, there are four levels and we take one
hour to triturate each level. This is done like described by Hahnemann in his Organon. See
reference 18.
C1 represents the physical level, C2 the mental level, C3 the emotional level, C4 the
individual spiritual level and C5 the collective spiritual level or archetypical level. The
experience teaches us that the symptoms produced at each level are not always just the one
corresponding to that level; it is likely that most provers produced physical symptoms at other
levels, not just at the C1 level. The same applies for instance to symptoms of emotional nature
that can appear at the C1 level. It is also interesting to see that often physical symptoms are
accompanied by emotions.
The goal of such trituration provings it is not only to make your own good quality remedies as
Hahnemann encouraged us to us in his Organon , but also to connect directly with the energy
of the substance by engaging in a meditative way of trituration, doing it in a group is said to
enhance the resonance with the substance and with each other, which means that the
symptoms and sensations are experienced more clearly or strongly. It is believed that this way
you enhance the perception of yourself and the environment and that, just like a regular
proving, this kind of practices can bring about healing. In some cases some spectacular
healing processes take place, like some old masters in homeopathy have experienced as well
in the past . The special thing about this method is that you do not stop at the third trituration

25
or C3, like Hahnemann did with the non soluble substances, you go one step further, to the
C4 in which you connect with still unknown spiritual information of the substance. This level
touches the individual plane of spirituality; the C5 brings about a collective experience or as it
is called the archetypical information of a substance. The existence of this “collective
knowledge” as Jung described it, has not only been confirmed by Jeremy Sherr during his
Hahnemannian provings but also by more contemporary provers like one of the pioneers of
the C4- homeopathy Jürgen Becker or Rajan Sankaran himself .
20

22
23
These kind of triturations are usually done in a silent, meditative way, even though in this
case we also took the chance to paint, which was a beautiful experience because in this way
we created a situation in which we could interact with each other under influence of the
substance, giving us a much better inside in the feelings and sensations of this remedy. One of
the most striking things that came up was about territories and boundaries, the feeling that
someone could go over these with no respect awoke a lot of anger and irritation, all of these
elements come back repeatedly in the proving. The “conflict” was mainly going on between
provers 7 and 15, the rest were mostly spectators with an opinion about what was going on.

Archetypical: representing or constituting an original type after which other similar things are patterned; "archetypal patterns"; It also
means subconscious collective information of the human race.( www.answers.com)
22
The collective unconscious is a part of the unconscious mind common to all humans. According to Carl Jung, the collective unconscious
contains archetypes, universal mental predispositions not grounded in experience. (http://skepdic.com/collectiveun.html)

3b. Classification of symptoms in the trituration proving
Disadvantages in this kind of trituration proving affecting the symptom classification
As soon as it was decided that I was going to work on this proving as my graduation work I
read Sherr’s book about the methodology of the provings and I consulted the proving
guidelines of the “European Council of Classical Homeopathy (ECCH)”24. I soon realized that
those proving guidelines are written for the so called “Hahnemannian provings” in which a lot
of things are taken in consideration before accepting a prover into a proving.
Unfortunately the set up for this trituration only met a few of the requests on which a proving
is considered reliable. These were that the group had between 10-20 provers, that there were
no pregnant women of lactating women participating and old the provers were older than 18
years and the group was formed with people from different backgrounds and professions, not
all of them being homeopaths or students of homeopathy.
The probably most important requests that are not met are the fact that every one’s medical
history was and is still unknown to me, that a big number of those provers were receiving
homeopathic treatment at the time of the triturations.
It is thus necessary to consider that the methodology of these types of provings is different to
the trituration ones and therefore is it very difficult to classify the symptoms according to the
“official method”.
Sherr gives us a list of guidelines25 to include symptoms which unfortunately I am afraid I can
not use consistently since it if often unknown whether the symptoms are old, new, cured or
altered. Only a few of the provers mention this in their texts. It is a fact that these provers did
not use the official guidelines for keeping and registering their symptoms, even though a list
of these was mailed beforehand. I would imagine that the reason for this is that these provers
all have families, jobs, studies and even pets to take care of. The symptoms, from which this
information is known, have been classified accordingly.
Another disadvantage in this kind of trituration proving is that often modalities are not
mentioned, because sometimes they are just not visible or are discovered by coincidence.
There is also the fact to be considered that some provers did not know if what they were
experiencing was due to their treatments or circumstances in their lives. The supervisor did
provide some guidance in these matters but since the time was limited not everyone got to be
screened before, during and after the proving.
General advantages that come out of this kind of trituration provings
There is some time and quietness to really go into the substance and experience the
symptoms, this can last for just the trituration times or can be there for days, even weeks.
It gives the prover the chance to know the remedy really well because you get to experience
the deepest insides of it, which can be very helpful for the prescribing practitioner. These
24

27
experiences can be healing and helpful to everyone willing to experience them and embrace
them fully.
It creates a bond with the group since you are constantly sharing the most intimate
experiences, even those of spiritual or religious character. It can create a sense of togetherness
and sympathy that is not possible when the provers are not in touch with each other, like it is
requested by the official proving guidelines.
3c. Classification of the symptoms
As I have just mentioned above it is very difficult to classify these symptoms according to the
official guidelines. What I have done instead is translate all the symptoms given to me by the
provers. I have included almost all of those symptoms in this work. The reason why I have
done this is because as I started classifying the symptoms I realised that there were hardly any
symptoms showing that were outrageous or seemed to make no sense at all. All the symptoms
I have come across have either a strong resemblance or connection to the general themes of
gem stone remedies as described by Peter Tumminello , or show a strong resemblance to the
components of the gem Lapis Lazuli as described in the previous chapter.
26
Therefore I have no reason to doubt that the symptoms are genuine and belong to the
substance we were triturating. Another confirmation is the fact that all of the provers
experienced very similar things, sometimes experienced literally the same. Other loose
symptoms experienced by some provers where also included in the list, only time can teach us
whether these are part of the proving or not, as again Sherr states in his book
27
3d. Following order of lists of symptoms
The mental symptoms are the first ones you find in the next pages. The mental/emotional
symptoms have been grouped under main themes. The main themes are chosen according to
the different mental symptoms and are mention with prover number and level of trituration
beside each symptom. The choice not to translate the mental symptoms into rubrics is meant
for keeping the symptoms as intact as possible and easier to understand. Peter Tumminello
also uses this theme method in his book “Twelve Jewels”. The physical symptoms have been
grouped under the corresponding body part and translated into rubrics as seen in the Synthesis
repertory and Frans Vermeulen’s “Concordant Materia Medica”. A list with the proving
dreams has been added right before a brief explanation of the C5-level linking it to the fairy
tale “Sleeping Beauty”. The C5-level has only been summarized with those symptoms that
give a deeper or broader understanding of the remedy. I have not listed again all the other
symptoms that have been widely described in the first for levels of the triturations. For
instance symptoms like ice coldness, violent anger and etcetera. The last information given is
about the symptoms produced after taking a single dose of Lapis Lazuli C40/4, potentized by
the provers themselves on May 11th 2005.

After that a summary of the proving classified by trituration level as well as a small
summarized text between the mental and physical symptoms has been added. A few sentences
describing the essence of the remedy have also been added to this summary.
3e. Mind Symptoms
MIND – THEMES and related symptoms to the themes
Wild animals & territories – Instinct – Acute Senses – Nature
* Awakened instincts, feeling of being an animal with acute senses, shaper vision and
hearing. Sensation and need to break from human bonds. Freedom of wild animals, no
borders, like in nature*
•
•
•
•
•
A lion – I felt more animal than human. I could not think like a person. I could
experience moistness, the sun on the skin. I tried to rationalize it and it did not work. I
could only see a big gray mass, no shape. I had lost the human sight on things. I
checked twice in the mirror to see if I was really a lion. (11/C1)
I can smell stronger and vision is sharp. (17/C1)
I saw wolves walking, there is an interesting conflict going on with the painting,
people talk of having no boundaries and at the same time you come there in the
territory, space and border by arguing about it. In territories there is always a border.
(9/C2)
People do not belong in cities, but in nature like animals. Animal necessity of breaking
links and bonds. (13/C3)
Delusions of smell peppermint, camphor, trees, fruit, sweet smells, burned coffee,
fresh soap, gasoline. (1/C3 5/C4, 1/C1, 3/C2, 17/C1, 8/C2)
Alternating moods – Changing states – Contradictions
* Some sort of emotional instability is experienced. Often joy, alternates with either anger or
sadness, sometimes both, also contradictory states*
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Strongly going from anger to the humoristic side of this remedy. (6/C1)
I feel like a yo-yo; one minute I am happy, the next very sad, melancholic without
reason. I wish death. (7/C1)
I was feeling good after clearing up the house, in an instant enormous argument with
partner even though I felt love. There was a quick shift in my moods. (16/C1)
After anger and being goofy, teasing, I keep on singing the song it my head “Let it be
love”. (1/C2)
Irritation and then laughing. (3/C2)
The fear and anxiety are gone, now I feel good, relaxed, and happy and free. (3/C2)
Hyperactivity alternating with dullness. (2/C3)
Everything feels opposite. I can either take everything or nothing. (8/C3)
I am either cautious or not at all. (8/C3)

29
•
Depressed # light feeling. (12/C4)
30
Bullying – fights – teenage years – doing forbidden things – feeling of injustice/borders
* There is a feeling of being teased, bullied, not understood, the way things go is unfair.
There is a feeling of someone crossing the line and this leading to anger. Some of the provers
associate this with puberty *
•
•
•
•
•
•

•
•
I see a 4-6 year old, he is doing something that his mother disapproves and he is
laughing about it. I did it and you did not even see it! (3/C1)
I think of puberty, I know how everything is! (5/C1)
I get angry with my mother, enormously angry, I yell. She is not reasonable, it is all
unfair. She does not get it! It makes me think of puberty. (7/C1)
Fights and arguments with teenage sons. (7/C1)
The feeling of injustice leads to anger. (14/C1)
I see images of the past, situations in which I was very angry, it all had to do with
crossing the line, the border, the limit. I feel the anger boiling in me. It is violent but I
know where it comes from, I am not clear; I let it happen. (17/C1)
I have a goofy feeling. I feel goofy, I tease my husband. (1/C2)
Teasing and suppressed aggression is how I experience the painting issue. Anger
because someone crossed the line. (4/C2)
Feeling of being bullied, teased with almost physical pain, I observe, wait until they
cross the line, I do not know what I am going to do if they do cross the line, when I
see that does not happen I relax and start to see it differently, I can let go. (7/C2)
There is something I do not like, do not want to follow the group, I do not want to
resist, but participating is difficult. From resisting, I think of war. (7/C3)
I want to make noise, fart, I feel childish, 12-13 years old. (17/C3)
Inner dark side – goals
* There is the feeling of being drawn to your own dark side, to the that you would not want to
see, those things that your gladly ignore about yourself. It seems that from ignoring the dark
side the goal in life is not visible*
•
•
•
Something hard, strong, is drawing me from the inside. Something wants to come out
of me but it cant, something takes me to the inside; I feel almost breathless, almost sad
but calm. I feel as if I was pushed into a big, dark inner side. (10/C3)
I feel like this trituration is a conversation with my inner self. At some point in the
conversation I understood one half and then got headache on the third eye area,
between eye brows. It is about the things that clash in my life. It all feels very heavy.
(12/C3)
It feels like there is a protected wholeness, can not get to the essence or the goal. It
feels it is almost there. (13/C3)
Death – cemeteries – ghosts – associations with the elderly and terminal patients
* Death and dying associated with the elderly, terminal patients, and cold places, lean people
and bones, all death symbols. Delusions of seeing dead people, grave and dying. Death seen

I wish death. (7/C1) (17/C3)
I see old people all over. I think they are lonely. I am afraid of getting old. (7/C1)
Death – people of the world in a circle, hand in hand, Hallelujah. A huge iron plate,
surrounded by grass crashes all the people, some came crawling out as if nothing had
happened. The feeling is: ok we are going to die, come from down under and go on.
(11/C1)
I had images of Auschwitz (in snow and cold). (15/C1)

follows BEECH. (3/C3)
I wonder what I am doing on earth; wish to be on the other side. (3/C3)
I do not feel depressed and in fact I do not wish death, but I just felt so good on the
other side, on top of the mountain. I was not down here then, I was up there and it felt
good. (3/C3)
A friend of mine had an operation; he is probably going to die. It touches me
enormously. This means another good-bye. (16/C3)
The material world is too heavy; I can not get through it. I want to be up there, in the
spiritual world, a world with no thoughts. This life is too much for me. I want to be up
there. (17/C3)
I feel I need to say good-bye to this world. (17/C3)

have seen too much already. (1/C4)
I yearn for music to help me float away from here. (1/C4)

Detachment – Indifference – Soberness – Recklessness
* A sense of detachment, indifference, like nothing matters anymore, not caring anymore.
There is a strong feeling of being unmoved by things, no feeling of any kind. Emotional
coldness*

I leave the house and leave the heaters on. I do not usually do that, learned from my
dad to be cautious but today I just do not care. (3/C1)
I have been taking distance. I had to get away from it all. I knew things and that was
enough.
I have been detaching from reality. It is a sober feeling. (9/C1)
Sober – that you do not get taken over by the feeling or emotion (10/1)
I could dose the news about the Tsunami very well, could cry when TV on, but I could
go on easily when it was off. (11/C1)
I feel sober, very manly, a farmer man. (11/C1)
I felt some sort of soberness. (12/1)
Seeing the grief around me does not move me, I just perceive it. (17/C1)
Things go wrong at work, it is very busy but it does not affect me. (1/C2)
I feel neutral, nothing specific. (3/C2)
Trance like feeling – neutral feeling – detached from reality – things around appear
vague. (3/C2)

every one is theorizing. (18/C3)
Feeling of distance and death. (2/C4)
I feel indifferent, detached. (2/C4)
Neutral feeling, walking on a golden aisle to the other world. (3/C4)
Deep indifference, it does not do me anything. (17/C4)
No connection with the environment. I am fine alone. (17/C4)
Different dimensions – wider view (C3/C4)
* In a deeper level the pain of experiencing things as unfair not being understood and others
crossing the line, transforms into the possibility to see things from a wider perspective, a
different point of view. It is about seeing without borders*
•
This remedy gives us the energy to see that facts and reality can change real quickly.
People can experience different truths and that is why there is separation and
arguments. People relate to truth and injustice, just like kids feels it is not fair! (15/C3)
•
Cruel dreams are not cruel in a different dimension. The time and culture define this.
The cruelty can be normal in another culture of time. Living in different dimensions
produces grief. (18/C3)
33
•
Having the feeling of wanting to be up there and not down here. (3/C3) (17/C3)
•
I want to go to other dimensions, for this I need to let go. I do not want to be on earth.
(1/C4)
•
Feeling of being in the eternal mountain world, on a snowy mountain top, looking
down the world. I have an overview. I am above of the people’s non-sense. Feeling of
eternity. (5/C4)
•
Der Untergang. There was no overview; those people were too deep into it. (7/C4)
•
I am so far across the borders that I do not even see the earth. It is not fair how people
cheat each other, everyone does it. (13/C4)
Ego – selfishness – a way to deal with your pain (C3/C4)
* Again in a deeper level we find that to have a wider view and being able to see further than
your own perspective you need to let go of your ego. Selfishness seems to be a way to protect
balance your extreme feelings and to help you carry what might be unbearable otherwise*
•
I have had quick thoughts about what selfishness really is. A few years ago a patient
died in my practice while doing her follow up. The remedy had done her well, felt
very happy, realized. Back then, when she died I was not sad and I was angry at
myself for not being sad. I was sad for her husband and children but not for her. Later
I understood why I did not feel the sadness. That was a logical time for her to die. We
people have an aversion of situation of others. We have a problem ourselves, sadness
about someone who has died, we only really feel our own sadness but project it into
the death of that person; feelings that you reuse through the others. This stabilizes our
extreme feelings. (15/C3)
•
Association of the angry sea with violent waves. Young boys who are disobedient or
even almost hard, seem to have no feelings. This rebellious feeling is where the pain
hides. Young boys have the strength to do it like this. (15/C3)
•
I do not want to prove myself, I am ok like this. It is the horrible egos to which I need
to prove myself. (1/C4)
•
You can all have the EGO- existence, it is fine by me, and I am gone! I feel sad but
proud. (1/C4)
•
As I walk down the golden aisle I ask myself. Did I learn enough? I got the feeling
that this does not touch me, move me. What is the opposite of this? That everything
comes in goes through you. Give and take. Selfishness can be harmful but also
healthy. You do not need to miss anything, what you need will be provided.
•
I see a farao, the Queen Nefertiti and a slave, I ask myself, who is privileged? The one
who can forget his ego. In reality it is all the same, you have to walk the golden aisle
by yourself. (3/C4)
34
•
You lose awareness and overview when you get stuck in your ego. To be able to walk
down the golden aisle, you have to grow. Growing comes from overview, a wider
perspective. (3/C4)
•
This remedy is for people who have lost their wide perspective because of their ego,
therefore being unable to see from other perspectives. The opposite is too little ego,
therefore not feeling understood what leads to grief. The solution to this is being able
to see from ALL the perspectives. (3/C4)
•
When do we need EGO? It all has to do with boundaries. Boundaries do not exist, but
you can only understand this when you can let go of your ego. (3/C4)
•
Why do not we get to know things? Is our ego in the way? (7/C4)
•
People are beautiful in the way we try to strive for truth, reaching the BEING state.
(7/C4)
Egypt
* Egypt associated with death and a passage to the after life. Another way to see the
transformation process*
•
•
•
•
Smell of old rags, like from the pyramids. (17/C1)
I see Egypt, an oasis in the dessert. I see the orange sky and Nefertiti’s head. I have a
neutral feeling. It feels like the passage to the other world. I walk in a golden aisle,
going somewhere but the aisle does not seem to end. (3/C4)
Dry skin associated with mummies. (17/C4)
I had something with Egypt. (18/C4)
Excitement – joy – feeling happy
*Feeling of happiness and thankfulness. Feeling understood*
•

I get a little pile of this blue stuff in the mortar. It looks very beautiful. I feel excited, I
am curious about the result of this trituration. (3/C1)
I feel this excitement (in the stomach). Then I feel that my bladder is full and that I
might pee myself from the excitement. (3/C1)
I see a group of children at some park, playing with a ball. They throw the ball in the
air and then I see the sky. I see the clear, blue sky. I have happy thoughts. (3/C1)
I feel happy and open, intense conversations. I feel that my conversation partners
understand exactly what I mean. (5/C1)
I feel excited, surprised of how beautiful the color blue is. (17/C1)
I feel good. (17/C1)
Gay and happy feeling, I feel thankful to be able to experience this. (1/C2) (7/C4)
I think of color times, happy times. I feel happy thinking of the past a lot, I see
pictures of my family and me, old pictures. (2/C2)
Smiling, sensation of happiness. (3/C2)
Excited, want to get on with painting and do not want to be stopped in this. (7/C2)
I feel happy, happy that I got the information I got about the ego. (3/C4)
35
Fear – anxiety, of the intensity of the symptoms, feeling of threat with anger
* Violent fears and anxieties for what it is about to come. There is a fear of the intensity of it
and not being able to handle it or cope with it, most of these fears are felt in the stomach or
abdomen*
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Fear, I walk back and forth, I feel like a caged animal. (1/C1)
I feel threatened, as if the powder was going to attack me. (1/C1)
On the day of the trituration very anxious before I came to the meeting. I felt the fear
in the abdomen. (12/C1)
I am afraid of finishing the trituration, I am afraid of my own anger and violent
explosions. (17/C1)
Anxious, fearful, something is going to happen, somebody is going to die, it is
someone I care about.(3/C2)
Something needs to explode, meteorite, fireball with a feeling of being attacked.
(7/C2)
Anticipation fear, fear of the future, I feel it in the stomach. I do not know how to do
things in the future; I do not know what is going to bring me. (13/C2)
Fear of the trituration. (15/C3) Fear of the trituration and that is why does not do it.
(16/C3)

My abdomen hurts because of this. (16/C3)
Fear associated with good-byes, death and transformation. (16/C3)
Danger comes from an unexpected corner. (18/C3)
Fear of triturating the C5 level, I am afraid of losing the good feeling, the knowledge,
afraid something bad will come. (3/C4)
I am afraid, it is a deep fear of existence, and this goes to fast for me. (7/C4)
Freedom from time, material things, bonds, ties and guilt
* Breaking loose from everything. Being able to be free from boundaries, time, material
things and eventually guilt*
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Freedom from material things. Connection with the soul, spirit. (3/C2)
Freedom, breaking loose feeling. Freedom in relation to material things. (3/C2)
Blue butterflies, sensation of freedom – I paint this on the wall. (3/C2)
Feeling of freedom after painting, I am done! (3/C2)
I feel free and happy. (3/C2)
Allowing yourself to feel things, gives u freedom. (3/C2)
Time has to go; universe has a timeless existence. (15/C2)
Animal necessity of breaking bonds and ties. Do not feel attached to rules, anti-social.
I want to be free, a drifter, being free means being strong. (13/C3)
Blaming each other is the way to get the freedom; it gives you the answer and the
solution. Like terminal patients blaming the environment. It is needed to get the
freedom to go. (15/C4)
Something with prejudices and blaming others, I do not know what. It is so heavy that
you do not know if you can go on with it yourself. First negative prejudices, and then
36
something beautiful. Blaming is necessary to come out of something and see that it
can be the solution. (20/C4)
Forgetfulness – not concentrated
* There is a feeling of not being able to concentrate, forgetfulness and word hunting*
•
•
•

•
I forget things I usually do automatically, like taking the shopping box for the
groceries. (5/C1)
I have a vague feeling. Very forgetful. (12/C1)
Looking for the right words when speaking. (12/C1)
I had things in my head and then I lost them in 3 seconds. Gone! (12/C1)
I do not remember how to triturate, that is why I postpone the trituration. (19/C1)
I can not concentrate, difficult to remember names, though all over the place. (19/C1)

Wandering thoughts. (2/C2) (7/C4)
I can not concentrate of the trituration, I am distracted. (3/C2)
It is difficult to stay with one subject. (7/C4)
Chaos, I forget everything. No thoughts – Mind is Blanc. (13/C4)
Hard and heavy – too much going on – trying to ignore reality
* The symptoms are so violent and the emotions so intense that there is a feeling of it all
being really hard and heavy to handle, being to much and therefore trying to ignore it is there
or suppressing it *
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Already all these symptoms, oh jeez, how violent! My God, can I take it? (1/C1)
I do not want to bother anyone; I have to solve things myself. At the end I call
someone and spit it all out. I can not handle it all by myself, it is too much. After this I
sleep for 2 nights straight since a couple of months. (7/C1)
It feels heavy, stuck; slow. (19/C1)
Heavy and tired feeling with the grief. The grief is too much, too heavy. (1/C3)
Heavy and tired feeling. (6/C3)
Heavy, have to triturate with both hands. (6/C3)
There is too much going on, it is so much, it does not stop, it feels like I can not tell or
my head shall explode. (11/C3)
The unbearable being helped by a drug produced in our bodies. I feel the childish
element of not understanding the cruelties of humanity and being relieved by the
thought of this drug. There is a feeling that there is no solution, just an illusion that
there is. I feel resistance to go into the illusion. If the must not go too deep into the
emotion, the way should be opened to a bigger wholeness but that is an escape,
suppression and so we should not leave the pain and inflicted pain behind to make it
easier!! (15/C3)
A friend is going to die, the pain he suffers is horrible and his death means another
good-bye, this all feels like it is too much for me. I meditate after this and feel a bit
calmer. (16/C3)
The material world is too heavy; I can not get through it. I want to be up there, in the
spiritual world, a world with no thoughts. This life is too much for me. I want to be up
there. (17/C3)

•
Life is very heavy, not physically but emotionally heavy. (17/C3)
ICE COLD - Associations with glass, ice, snow – blue, dark blue
* Extreme ice cold, not only physically but also mentally and emotionally, these translate to
indifference and wishing death. The strongest associations to cold and ice in color is blue *

Beautiful blue color, as if there was some glass. (1/C1)
The mortar looks like skating field, the powder of all the skates that have gone over it,
trituration sounds like skating on ice. I think of the past, on the ice field.
Cold, winter cold, it is nice. Cold makes me think of the film “Snow Queen”. She lives
in an ice castle. (2/C1)
It is very cold outside and that is why I do not feel like going out. I can not sleep at
night, because I am so cold. (3/C1)
Dark blue and black. (4/C1)
Ice age. (8/C1)
I had images of Auschwitz in snow in cold, ice cold mind to think that up. It was a big
plan. (15/C1)
I see images of winters in the past; snow and ice. I feel sorry that those winters are not
there, maybe in the next life, it feels comforting. (2/C2).
Blue is beautiful, blue waves, the sea, water. (3/C2)
Hail, cold, still and cold world. I see lines of people walking through the snow. I find
it painful and close my eyes. (2/C4)
Feeling very cold, also mentally. (15/C4)
Deep sea, floating. (13/C4)
Northern cold. White and snow. (15/C4)
Cold in needed to be in quietness. Cold is needed to make the transformation. (15/C4)
Dr Zhivago – deep love that comes out of coldness. The coldness is needed to reach
the deeper love. Coldness develops strength through cold and winter sleep. Gathering
energy to be able to come out of the cold. (15/C4)
I feel frozen inside, like there is nothing. (17/C4)
Cold and going on, a transformation that is needed to gather strength and grow.
Feeling cold and loneliness. (20/C4)
Northern, cold countries. (20/C4)
Introspection
* Following the feeling of not being understood, not being listened to, there is introspection,
closing up and not wanting to share emotions with others. Feeling of being estranged and
belonging somewhere else (spiritual world) *

Obs: provers do not want to share the information on the webpage as it is usually
done.
I do not want to bother anyone; I have to solve things myself. At the end I call
someone and spit it all out. I can not handle it all by myself, it is too much. (7/C1)
I feel I do not belong here, from that moment on introspection, taciturnity. There is no
use in talking if I do not get understood. (16/C1)

estranged, things do not get through to me, I am slow, I do not want to work and can
not force myself to do so. (16/C1)

(1/C3)
It is nice to be in this trance, no thoughts, and emptiness. (17/C3)

I have an explosion of anger over the mail. Argue with my boyfriend as soon as I
come in. He does not understand what is happening. I go to my room, cry and cry. I
feel ice cold inside and out. I feel that I am doing so much from the bottom of my
heart and he does not see it. He only sees the sharpness of my words. To avoid more
arguing he walks away whistling, this feels like a confirmation that he does not care.
At one I am at this very hysterical state, it feels like a nervous breakdown. I can not
stop weeping, sobbing like crazy. I feel that I destroy relations but I do not understand
how. I have changed. I try hard but he does and says the same as my ex-boyfriend. I
feel desperate. I do something wrong and do not see what, I do not see it. Feelings of
guilt. I think of my mother’s family, the guilt that my grandfather must have felt when
he abandoned 3 daughters and a wife. The hysteria stopped but I am still crying. My
partner and I talk and things go back to normal. Analysis of this: explosion of anger
about nothing, after that grief, crying and guilt. Very, very old issues come back up
that I did not have for years and years. (3/C2)

3h. Dreams of the Lapis Lazuli trituration
DREAMS of the Lapis Lazuli trituration
Prover 3/C1
Dream – night of the trituration day
I dream that I have some sort of tumor in my knees, they are purple and swollen. I can see the
veins in them. Then they fall on the ground and leave these ulcers behind. Once on the
ground, they grow and this enormous bee comes and feeds from them. My father and sister
are standing in the street, I meet them there. My sister tells me then that my mother has cancer
and that she is going to die sometime in November. She knows the exact date. My mother is
standing behind my sister and she looks like she does not know anything. I find that
distressing.
I have dreamt a couple of times that my teeth fell off. Healthy, sound teeth, with no holes but
were thin. It felt like having sea shells in my mouth. In the second dream I had no teeth and
though: I look like sh..! How horrible!
Prover 3/C2
I dream that my teacher has taken over one of my patients. She prescribed some other remedy.
She tells me the story of this other remedy, hoe it is made and where from. It is an animal that
looks a bit like an armadillo. She claims that this remedy is better for the child. She tells me
this seriously but the people around her are laughing, as if they knew that what she is telling is
not right. I feel angry and frustrated; I feel powerlessness and can not believe it. How is this
possible? I can just not believe it. I think that I have deep respect for my teacher and I always
ask you about things. I do that gladly, and this can not be. This is my patient I would have
liked to be asked first, before anyone did anything.
Prover 4/C1
Dreaming of something broken, it is done with the teeth and then spitting it all out. It is like
some soft and bloody stuff.
Prover 5/C1
Dream a lot about every day things like doing the groceries or cleaning.

* = new rubrics

Prover 5/C4
I saw the church tower of my parents’ village crushing down. My parents live close to the
church, everything was destroyed. I saw my parents’ house from the other side of the street.
There was no much going on, just that everything was destroyed.
Prover 12/C1
I dreamt a lot about everyday things like vacuuming of doing the dishes. In the morning I had
forgotten the dreams and then around 15 pm I remembered some of it.
Prover 16/C1
I dream a lot about my father and the past.
Prover 8/C2
I dream of bees in my room. They sting me. They are in the curtain, they are flying at me.
Some unknown person takes the curtain and shakes them off.
Prover 3/C3
I dream that I am so angry at someone that I can not stop yelling and end up beating up this
person. I have drawn that person violently into a room and start beating her up. The reason for
this is that I feel she crossed the line, disrespected the boundaries. This is a female family
member coming on to my partner. My thoughts about this: you are not touching the most
sacred in my life. After this I feel very sad and cry a lot because my partner is very angry at
me for what I have done. He says to me in the dream: you have made a scene at a family party
and that is not the place to do it! You have no respect for anybody!!
Prover 5/C3
Dreams of strange situations in family, daughter had 3 children in dream instead of one.
Also dreamt that my father in law, at 91 years went off to get something and fell, he ended
standing on his feet one floor lower and walked away. I was surprised he was not injured. I
had not emotions with this, I just watched it.
Prover 18/C3
Cruel dreams. Felt shocked in the dreams.
I dreamt of turtles eating a fish head, association with suppression and cruelty.
Dreams of dancing, a lot of dreams, often.
Prover 18/C4
I dreamt of a snake, 2 days in a row. The snake was very thin, was in my pocket and bite me. I
let it fall, and goes away. Children are walking up the stairs they get bitten but do not feel it.
57
Prover 8/C5
I dream about the war. I and my children are in some attic. Somebody knocks strongly on the
door. And then there is silence. One of my sons climbs on the roof to see what is going on. He
then gets threatened with a gun by a soldier that was on the roof. They tell us that we shall be
picked up in two days. I say good bye to the attic. I look through its round windows, I see a
long and wide ditch full of weed, green plants, and it extends for as long as my eyes can
reach. I get up with a heavy feeling.

3i. C5 level – “Sleeping Beauty”
C5 level – the archetypical information of Lapis Lazuli
During the fifth trituration of the remedy the main feelings expressed were:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Resistance to things – to old things that come back, to what there is to come,
especially negative things like the coldness and cruelty of humanity. (Hitler as
example) (3/C4 7/C5 15/C5)
Fear that joy will turn around into misery – (3/C4 6/C5 7/C5)
Feeling that maybe you can not be yourself because of duties and time, responsibility
– wanting to break loose from these - (8/C5 13/C5)
Feeling of being gone, detached – with “Sleeping beauty” as comparison in this gone
feeling as well as the contradictions in it. (6/C5 15/C5)
Experiencing the dark side as cruelty and wanting to skip that part. Anger about
having to go through it forcibly. ( 2/C5 15/C5)
Living in paradox – contradictory emotions – the solution being : believing in
yourself and going above that feeling. (5/C5 7/C5 9/C5 11/C5 15/C5)
29
Ultimately what seems to be the core of this information is the paradox, having to go through
the darkest of times to see the light and experiencing many contradictions in feelings, deeds,
wishes, just like seen in the previous four triturations.
-
It is difficult to get to the light, that is why the darkness feels like isolation to me,
because I can not see it right. (8/C5)
I am in the darkness and I feel isolated, there is just one beam of light. (8/C5)
There is resistance to go through darkness because it is brought on by someone’s cruelty.
Someone’s cruelty brings on the darkness, a darkness that is so hard to bear that someone has
no choice but to grief intensely and be consumed with anger, like we see in the proving.
Most of the above mention feelings are reflected in the fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty”. In the
next page two pages I explain the links between the proving and the fairy tale. The text used
for this is that of Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch.

Paradox (disambiguation).
A paradox is an apparently true statement or group of statements that seems to lead to a contradiction or to a situation that defies intuition.
Typically, the statements in question do not really imply the contradiction, the puzzling result is not really a contradiction, or the premises
themselves are not all really true or cannot all be true together. The recognition of ambiguities, equivocations, and un stated assumptions
underlying known paradoxes has led to significant advances in science, philosophy and mathematics. Wikipedia encyclopedia

Comments about “Sleeping Beauty” in relation to the trituration proving
In the fairy tale there are contradictions in which we see that a family that could wish nothing
else was in grief because they did not have a child (paragraph 2). Another one could be that in
a palace where everything runs around the princess, at the time of the unfortunate event there
is no one around to save her completely from her fate (paragraph 17-23). Instead of dying she
would fall into a deep sleep, which to her father the king, this sounded like “cold comfort at
the best” (paragraph 14). It is interesting to see that this sensation of coldness is seen
throughout the proving as well.
All of these elements we find in the fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty” where as in history, a family
who has and enjoys everything, lives happily in light (paragraph 1) is brought cruelly into
darkness by someone who has issues, in the fairy tale’s case the Fairy Uglyane , who curses
the young Princess Aurora to die by piercing her hand with a spindle; bringing her
unexpectedly from light into darkness for many, many years (Paragraph 11). This reflects the
element of the unexpected that we see in the proving, where there is resistance to go on
because of the fear of misfortune, fear of what it about to come. Once in the darkness you can
not do anything but wait, wait to see the glimpse of light, like Princess Aurora had to wait for
the prince to come by and break the spell. We can all imagine how such state can give us the
feeling of isolation, being by your self in the darkness not being able to get help from anyone.
31
Another curious link between this fairy tale and the proving is the “sleeping sickness”
(paragraph 31) where everyone sleeps deeply. In the proving we see an extreme feeling of
tiredness with great need for sleep, wanting to go to sleep. This sleep symbolized death, as it
is experienced by the Prince when he first enters the castle to rescue Princess Aurora
(paragraph 40-42).
The other similarity between the tale and the proving is the hunger everyone experiences on
waking up, they all think of food (end paragraph 49 & 50), even the Queen herself who was
first devastated by the events.
The fairy tale shows that at the end, if you do dare to suffer the darkness as it comes, the light
will show itself sooner or later, but even then there will be less joyful events, as these all
belong to life itself and can not be avoided. The Princess and Prince lived happily ever after
but had to see their fathers die of old age (paragraph 42-58).

3j. List of symptoms after one single dose of Lapis Lazuli C40/4
On May 11th 2005 we potentize the remedy up to C30/4 and then C40/4 by hand according to
the Korsakov method. After this most of the provers take one single dose (one drop) of the
C40/4 remedy. Provers 1, 2 and 12 do not take it, they are afraid of the reaction. Only a few
provers send in their experiences after taking the remedy.
Observations & mentioned reactions at the time
-
Provers look young and fresh.
Accelerated heartbeat – feeling a rush of energy on the chest.
Feeling that thyroid works faster, feeling of hurry.
The letters in the paper seem to dance & feeling of hurry.
There is a lot of humor, people teasing each other.
Mental Symptoms
-
-
-
Feeling of not being here anymore, having lost yourself (1, 8)
My relationship with this remedy is that of love/hate. It attracts me but I am afraid of
its dark side. (3)
I feel courageous or coward. I postpone things that I do not like but they keep coming
back. Then I feel that I need to confront them. I feel like a warrior before the battle. (3)
I wake up singing ‘Let it be´ by the Beatles and need to listen to it many times on
waking – feeling of unity and trust (3)
I feel moved by provers 3 story with the Beatles, it is about mother Mary. In one of the
sessions with a patient I drew something in an intuitive manner; a dark blue bow
appeared with the contours of mother Mary beside it. It feels like we can now contact
this high and healing entity, please read “Let it be” (8)
I have the feeling of overview in my life, I feel relaxed, like an old soul, feel the
wisdom, the emotions get quieter. Things are like they are, that is nature! Even if it
means that I shall loose loved ones. I shall miss them but it won’t destroy me. All the
contradictions in my life are clear now. If there is something very beautiful, something
horrible will follow, this is nature’s law; I accept it and embrace it. I have a terrible
need to mother others; I am not a mother so I play mother with my parents and friends.
(13)
Trying not to make room for those deeper feelings that you would rather suppress (15)
Strong need to suppress emotions (15)
Sympathy towards those who suffer (15)
Anger about trifles, be nice, let it be, function from a higher perspective (15)
Superficial attitude towards cruel events & emotions that these bring up (15)

Can not remember, woke up singing “Let it be” the Beatles (3)
I am walking around the Church’s yard, someone is being followed and shot at, and he
dies. I become afraid and hide behind a small building with a little porch. I am
convinced that I can not be seen. I am afraid the shooter is going to shoot more people.
I feel save and think I am not seen, then someone I know comes by and asks: are you
coming? And then I ask: How do you know I was there? He could see me from the
distance, I had made a mistake (5)
Someone does not want to believe what I am telling, denies what I did and tells the

her on the finger because I feel powerless. The bite is so hard that I can taste the blood

I am giving birth with 3 other women. The contours of the baby could be felt through

me and I know that it is a boy. (8)

“The Mother Mary”
Mosaic by Sano di Pietro
Symbolism
Painting “Mother and child” Sano di Pietro33
34
The Virgin mother is the prima materia, the matrix, the virgin earth, the bearer of light,
transforming power; she is symbolized by the tree, flowers and fruits.
Virgin goddesses are not necessarily “virgo intacta” but unwed, free. Their chief symbols are
the moon and the serpent. Virgin birth is the union of the divine and the human, heaven and
earth, which results in the birth of God or superior being. It also symbolizes the birth of
intelligence, or the higher faculties in men. The Great Mother, Queen of Heaven, is a virgin
and her son is born of the spirit of the will, or she is born of her own son, symbolizing original
identity.
The Christian Virgin Mary is associated with a number of symbols; all enclosed places such
as the walled garden; sealed fountain, the Ark, the living spring; also with the “living bush”
from the burning bush, a place of divine manifestation; the closed gate and the gate of heaven,
the light cloud, pure and unattached from which blessing falls in spiritual rain; the untilled
soil of Eden; the never extinguished lamp, a bridge leading to heaven, a ladder by which
Christ descended to earth; Star of the sea, and many other attributes.
The great Mother’s archetype
35
The Great Mother, however, can frighten as well as sustain. Nothing is quite as unnerving as
watching the Moon transformed from the nurturing light in the midnight sky into a black disk
cutting away the light of the sun during an eclipse. Mother Earth may sustain the crops, but
Mother Earth can generate terrible forces--earthquakes, floods and volcanic eruptions. Our
primitive psyches enshrine the ecstasy of hunger banished by mother's breast, but we also

harbour dark shadows of her absence, of her inability to make everything better. The Great
Mother not only pours her love out upon the earth, but she also generates an image in our
shadow, smothering, devouring, implacable, and too terrible to contemplate.
This is the mother-love which is one of the most moving and unforgettable memories of our
lives, the mysterious root of all growth and change; the love that means homecoming, shelter,
and the long silence from which everything begins and in which everything ends. Intimately
known and yet strange like Nature, lovingly tender and yet cruel like fate, joyous and untiring
giver of life--mater dolorosa and mute implacable portal that closes upon the dead. Mother is
mother-love, my experience and my secret. Why risk saying too much, too much that is false
and inadequate and beside the point, about that human being who was our mother, the
accidental carrier of that great experience which includes herself and myself and all mankind,
and indeed the whole of created nature, the experience of life whose children we are? The
attempt to say these things has always been made, and probably always will be; but a sensitive
person cannot in all fairness load that enormous burden of meaning, responsibility, duty,
heaven and hell, on to the shoulders of one frail and fallible human being--so deserving of
love, indulgence, understanding, and forgiveness--who was our mother. He knows that the
mother carries for us that inborn image of the mater natura and mater spiritualis, of the
totality of life of which we are a small and helpless part.

Mother Mary and Lapis Lazuli
As seen in the beginning of this work (Chapter 2, 2d) the link between Lapis Lazuli and the
Virgin Mary can not be denied. Most of the paintings of the Mother Mary in history have
been painted with ultramarine blue , made out of Lapis Lazuli.
37
If we compare the symbolism of the Mother Mary with the proving information we see some
links. The first is her transforming power and the bearer of light. In the trituration proving,
levels C1-C4 we see death as the transformation process. In the higher potentized Lapis Mary
appears as the transformation power. She brings light into darkness, she is the light bearer.
She is often symbolized by the moon – the female principal – appear both in the level 4 of the
trituration (Pr 8, 15, 18). Also symbols like old, big trees are mentioned in the proving, the
rainforest (Pr 3, 4, 8).
There is also a link mentioned between heaven and earth, which are complementary but
opposite, the birth of a superior being or the higher intelligence of mankind. This we can link
to the proving at the higher levels when some of the provers feel a sensation of arising above
all the problems and seeing everything from a higher perspective (see list of mental
symptoms, page 32).
It seems so that Mary is the highest female symbol for the light, reaching the wisdom to
overcome the worst of darkness periods. The spiritual feelings during the proving might be
linked directly to her and not so much to Jesus himself as he is not mentioned at all. The
provers mention bells, sacristy, nature, high mountains and trees, some of these being directly
Mother Mary’s symbols.
It is quite amazing to see that in the proving the song “Let it be” comes up where it literally
mentions Mother Mary as a comfort and source of light. The analysis of the song’s lyrics is
found at the end of the “Let it be” text.

she is standing right in front of me
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be. 1
And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be. Yeah
There will be an answer, let it be. 2
And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me,
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be,
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be 3
Analysis
Verse 1: In this part of the song it literally says that when things do not go right the source of
light appears, she brings comfort and light in the hour of darkness.
Mother Mary is telling that “letting it be” is the answer to the problem. Letting it be being the
opposite of dwelling and trying to fight things, suppression. Letting things happen, letting
things come as they are. Not fighting, not resisting.
The listener, the son that listens to Mother knows very well that what she is telling is what
needs to be done.
Verse 2: When there is unity in people that have been hurt, this probably meaning to
sympathize with each other instead of blaming or hating others the solution to the darkness
will show itself. This applies even to the ones that have already departed; the dead ones.
67
Verse 3: The message here seems to refer to “cloudy nights” or times when things are not
clear, when you do not know the answer, when you hesitate or experience some dilemmas.
There will still be glimpse of light shining to show you the way, also tomorrow there will be
that light, there is always hope. Music might be a way to let go of thoughts and fears and in
this letting go, you will see the light at the end and find the solution.
Another thing I would like to add to this, is that while looking at the title of the song I realised
that it also symbolizes the kind of dilemma seen in the Lapis Lazuli proving. The person is so
hurt and so damaged that can not let go of things and that creates the illness.

being
To be able to just BE, you need to be able to let go; like it is mentioned in many holistic and
naturals healing arts where the mental, emotional and physical state are all related. In
meditation this is a common practice. Thinking of this I found a very interesting text that also
confirms that in Lapis, the incapability to let go of anger, fear and pain can lead to illness.
Letting Go
Simple Tips to Staying in Balance
By Petrene Soames, author of The Essence of Self-Healing 38
An important part of becoming healthy and staying in balance is letting go of tension, stress
and deeply buried or surface negative emotions such as anger, frustration, fear, hurt, pain and
hate. I mentioned these so-called negative emotions because I have not yet found anyone who
was ill or out of balance because he or she was living in or holding onto an abundance of joy
and love. However, people are often ill because of the loss of joy and love from their lives;
some have never known either of these emotions.
Although I always look at each person as a unique individual being, and never apply
generalities to anyone, it is possible to recognize patterns and links between some illnesses
and certain emotions or mix of emotions. For example, lower backache, cancer, rheumatism,
and irritable bowel syndrome are often linked with holding on to anger, pain and fear. I'm not
suggesting that these illnesses are not very real in the body, but that letting go of these
emotions is necessary to initiate and to allow the healing process to move towards completion.
If you are in perfect health and shape you have found ways to let go already or not to hold on
to what you do not need. You let go quite naturally. When you were young and carefree
perhaps you let go of things more easily and never seemed to be ill; you were excited then and
busy exploring life. There is some truth in the idea of not having time to be ill, a philosophy
that works for many people. But as time goes by, letting go is often not so easy or
spontaneous.
Perhaps we simply do not make time for it; we get overloaded. Some people become more
relaxed once again in their older years. They live life from a more relaxed perspective
believing that the smaller events and problems that they used to worry about are no longer

Summarizing the proving by linking the main themes of mental and the physical level
As I try to make a round circle in the proving information I can say that the Lapis shows us
clearly what it is about. We see different symptoms at each level and these are no more than a
deeper understanding of the same feeling or its possible origins.
There seem to be very strong emotions. These strong emotions are mostly anger and sadness.
The anger is most prominently accompanied by abdomen complaints, like cramping pains.
Also heat in the head and other parts is seen as an expression of this anger. And the sadness
with palpitations of the heart and stitching pains in this area.
There is also a heavy, hard feeling and fear and anxiety of the violence of these experiences.
This reflects physically on the heavy and tired feeling in limbs and general loss of energy.
It seems so that the pain has been so hard and so heavy that to be able to bear it, it has to be
either ignored or suppressed initially. These emotions at this time are old grievances that have
been there for long. The suppressed pain is associated with war, concentration camps, death,
leaving home and saying good-bye to the dearest things. On a deeper level we see
indifference and a wish for death. This indifference or emotionless state is associated with
extreme cold, which is also experienced physically. The coldness brings on associations with
ice bergs, cold Northern countries and even Auschwitz in winter, which has a link with the
pain, loss, cold and emaciation and bones also mentioned during the proving.
This remedy seems to bring up all kinds of old, suppressed dark feelings and brings them into
the light, where one can deal with them and get rid of them for good. This seems to be a form
of “cleaning up”, this is how it is experienced by the provers and it is literally told in this way.
Also literal cleaning sessions have taken place at some prover’s homes.
The anger seems to be related to a feeling of not being heard or understood, a feeling that
someone is crossing the border, it is all going beyond what you can understand and tolerate.
This can lead to introspection later on, as the person feels that there is no point in trying. The
bonds and borders come back in the proving in the form of animal feelings and wanting to
break ties. The ultimate way of breaking ties is death itself, which is also a big theme in this
trituration.
70
The sadness seems to be also a part of feeling lonely and having the feeling not to belong
here, being estranged, having to leave, and say good-bye. The prominent nausea can be
related to the feeling that someone is so bad, so cruel, so beyond the human understanding
that makes one sick. This can be explained better at the C5-level of the trituration. (See 3i)
At a deeper level we see a swift in these feelings. What was death and end, feels like a
transformation process, there is calmness and quietness and a sense of a base, no fear.
The anger and the feeling that the boundaries are being crossed are replaced by understanding
selfishness and ego, and letting go of this for a wider understanding. A whole understanding
that would mean having no borders.
3l. The Essence of Lapis Lazuli
The Essence of Lapis Lazuli according to what is seen through the trituration.
It is not always easy to describe the essence of a substance with a few sentences. At this point
I find it necessary to give a description of the essence as I have learned it through
summarizing this proving. I hope that these words will help you remember the striking
characteristics of Lapis Lazuli making the recognition in practice a bit easier for you and your
colleagues.
The essence of this remedy:
A sudden misfortune brought on by someone’s cruelty or something (fate/mother nature); this
cruelty that goes beyond all human boundaries and understanding causes the deepest of grief
and anger, bringing on a state of almost total darkness; this darkness also being a metaphor for
death. It is so painful that it kills something in you and you resent and blame that person for it,
because it all goes beyond the human understanding. The pain seems to involve mainly family
members, loved ones, the mother, children, losing your loved ones.
These feelings of grief and anger can be so hard to bear that need to be suppressed to the
deepest, maybe also because of a feeling of responsibility towards the human existence, being
able to go on with everyday tasks. In this suppression there is a tendency to act superficially
or focus on unimportant things, not to look at the truth lying underneath. The suppression can
be the cause of instability and therefore alternating states sadness, isolation, and anger.
But why does this happen? I think that it is just part of life. What goes around comes around.
There are times of abundance, when we take things for granted and focus on the trivial things
in life, forgetting what really is essential. A cruel event can bring you to the most essential in
matter of minutes, a survivor of the Katrina who had lost everything material said on TV: this
hurricane has taught me that I can live with nothing. I think that the reaction to this can be
either confronting the pain and going on (if you do not know darkness, can never appreciate
the light) or you get stuck with it get bitter and eventually become cruel yourself.
An example for this would be the life of Jewish people being pretty happy until Hitler decided
to go after them. During Hitler’s time many families were torn, fathers, mothers and children
were separated, tortured, killed. I have always wondered, why Jews? Why them? Maybe it is
just pure coincidence, being at the wrong place at the wrong time but after this remedy’s
proving I thought that maybe it was something they needed because they were heading down
71
the wrong road. It is widely known that Jews have always been wealthy; maybe they were
focussing too much on this and taking things for granted? We will never know..
Also the fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty” shows a similar situation between the Princess’s family
and the fairy Uglyane. Someone’s cruelty that goes beyond human understanding brings on
darkness and death at some unexpected time in your happy life. Here we see how the daughter
is taken away from her parents and put into the darkness.
Rajan Sankaran writes in his book “The Sensation in Homeopathy” that:
39
•
•
•
Sensation and action are equal and opposite: actions are equal to what we perceive is
happening to us.
The opposite is equally true of what is said: sensitivity, we mention the things that are
issues to us and therefore means we are sensitive to these.
There is no one or nothing out there other than myself: we only perceive that what we
are sensitive to; other things we may not perceive at all.
If all of these are true we can assume that Lapis Lazuli does not only have a sensation of
being the victim of cruelty but also is cruel to others or would want to be cruel to others.
“I do not have or feel warmth, nurture, love, so I shall make sure that nobody else around me
does”.
The sensitivity of Lapis lies within the issues of cruelty (towards oneself and family), getting
warmth/love and nurture. The reaction to these sensations could be active, passive or
compensated. In the active reaction we would see someone being cruel to others; the passive
would be compassion and the compensation could be constant fighting against cruelty. In the
trituration proving itself we see suppressed aggression (cruelty), some sort of sympathy and
the feeling of something being unfair and feeling the need to quarrel about it. These
symptoms confirm Sankaran’s theory.

4d. Summary of the proving by Anne Schadde
42
•
Consolidation and disintegration:
Symptoms of consolidation appear, like metal plate in the head, petrification, swelling
of indurated lymph nodes and the matching dream about a lump in the breast. One
prover dreamed that the substance was granite.
There is also deep sadness leading to feelings of disintegration which showed itself in
physical symptoms as joint is as if disintegrated, sensation of disintegration of the
back and in delusions of transparency.
• Lightness & heaviness:
A sensation of heaviness appears repeatedly as in now I will petrify completely, the
Colossus of Rhodes. It comes in constant fatigue, exhaustion, weakness. On the other
hand the discrepancy between internal lightness and external heaviness and tiredness
becomes apparent. It could be said that there is something tender, subtle versus
rigidity, sluggishness, as well as slowness and lack of concentration, versus being
rushed and nervous.
• Womanliness, motherhood, pregnancy:
Two provers express the sensation as if they were pregnant. The great mother, being
pregnant, breast feeding, mother milk play a role in dreams as well, so does the above
mentioned dream of the lump in the breast.
• Religion:
42
Anne Schadde “ Listening to Stone, Wood and Shell” p. 55-58
81
•
•
•
•
We find religious symbolism in dreams about altars, paintings of saints, trip to Buddha
and also about witches and heathen rituals for the great mother.
Order:
Three different provers mentioned order and as a contrast clumsiness as an important
theme. In the big picture it is of importance that the remedy brought up the things that
were out of order: malfunctions of the car appeared, weaknesses in the organism
surface.
Water and dryness:
The water is mentioned as part of the synchronicity: the matching dreams about
Noah’s Ark and animal Polonaise, as a contrast: dryness of the skin, lips, mouth, dry
cough, coryza with running discharge, but also congestion of the nose.
Heat and cold:
Sensation of heat combined with abundant perspiration in the face, cheeks, forehead,
ears and the entire body, as well as dryness of the skin increased; also but less
sensitivity to cold and sensations of coldness.
Disease pictures:
Numbness, stiffness and trembling of the hands, arms as well as staggering gait,
sagging in the knees when trying to walk, also the dream about shuffling gait .
Pain in limbs and rheumatic complaints.
Four provers noticed heart disorders, including the sensation of cardiac arrest.
Three different provers noticed various symptoms of vertigo and sounds in the ears.
This included whistling high frequency sounds twice.
Bleeding from the anus and bloody stool, nose bleeding complaints regarding the head
as if vessels were rupturing.
43
4e. The comments by provers and supervisors (before the substance was revealed):
Prover 1
I experience a strong discrepancy between inside and outside, between physical and
mental/emotional.
Aversion to talk, but also enjoyment in meeting and exchanging with others.
I respond more sensitively to critics; I feel treated unfairly. But I also experience a lack of
sensitivity and emotion, I am indifferent and observing.
There was a non-specific longing and later the feeling of change and sometime euphoria.
Physically I became more and more immobile: hip, knee, thumb (not being able to tackle
something) with weight gain.
I thought now I will petrify completely, I became more and more apathetic. I felt like the
Colossus of Rhodes.
There was a feeling that something was going to change, as if it was about to happen; certain
clairvoyance, prophetic dreams, more sensitive in regards to myself and others.
Prover 3
Desire to retreat, I cleaned out the practice, cleaned the house. I spent one sleepless night
because of the fire in the oven was not supposed to be out, that was very important to me.
Followed by a dream:
43
Ataxic gait -- Awkward, uncoordinated walking (http://teachmefinance.com/Scientific_Terms/ataxic_gait.html)
82
Dream about the mountain of Ararat (where Noah’s ark landed). I am riding in a train, sharing
a compartment with my family, there is an announcement: the weather forecast calls for
strong winds on the way to Westland (?), please dress warm.
I think to myself that such wind does not penetrate the walls of a train. I feel a breeze going
through me in the dark. I can not see my children and my husband in the dark I apparently
brought the wrong wardrobe for the trip. In the morning through the trees of a big forest I can
see a mighty gigantic white mountain. It is the Ararat, how magnificent; I had no idea that this
is where this trip brings us. It is way more beautiful than I had even imagined. The mountain
is covered with pure snow. I cried out of happiness.
Association: wind – flood- feeling the ark.
She reported sudden moments of deep sadness “not even crying helps this state”, it is as if
everything disintegrated.
She cut her hair during the active phase of the remedy “as if cutting the umbilical cord”. Her
periods of sadness improved after that. Physically she felt clearly better after cutting her hair.
“I desire clarity and being grounded”.
Supervisor of prover 3:
“Everything prepares for something new. She has to create order”.
Prover 4
The radiator of our car explodes on Sunday after receiving the remedy. It turns out later that
this was due to a defect in the construction of the radiator. The car is 12 years old and drove
just fine, in spite of the defect.
One week later, on another Sunday, I ran into a roadside ditch: the car was totalled. Nobody
was injured.
On another Sunday a waiter poured water over my shirt.
Prover 8
The remedy brings me closer to my true being, reliable and friendly on the other side,
physically and mentally rigid on the other.
It confronted me with my own rigid side. Listless and sluggish, rigid, no interest in
cooperation.
The remedy also inspires something very deep, genuine, tender and subtle inside of me, the
dimensions of which I can only imagine, because defence, blockage and not-wanting to see
dominate me.
Prover 9
I had a lot of technical problems in my house: can’t install the software, the phone does not
work; I am cut off from the world.
One night the toilet was running, I was not able to turn off the water. I had to ask a friend for
help the same night, because I could not handle the rushing sound of the water.
Prover 13
I was clumsy, dropped the globules all over the desk; poured water of files. I was trembling
like an old woman. Many incidents involving water: it rained during the entire vacation. The
bad on top of the car got wet and all homeopathy books got soaked.
83
4f. The immersion proving of Lapis Lazuli by Peter Tumminello
44
The substance used: High quality stone in its natural unpolished state.
Method: Immersion. The gem is immersed in distilled water and left it exposed to sun and
moon for 24 hours before drawing off the water and mixing it with 50:50 with 90% alcohol,
which is the mother tincture. The potencies were made out of this tincture.
Potencies used 30K, C30, 200K & 10MM, as well as meditation.
Provings:
•
•
•
Experiment A: group proving. 13 June 1997. Single blind. Meditation/Hahnemannian.
Experiment B: Group proving, 22 June 1997. Single blind. Meditation/Hahnemannian.
Experiment C: Independent provers. 2 provers, 3 separate experiments.
Total of provers: 11 (5 women and 6 men)
Negative Seed Essence
Fruitless digging and the search for meaning
•
•
Being stuck in the small picture and wanting to get to the bigger one. Finding the
meaning of life, meaningful things to do, instead of being stuck with “Mundane, daily
things, price of food I had bought, things to clean at home, things to organise. This
was frustrating to me, as I wanted to move on to bigger more meaningful things” This
situation causes anger; anger at being constrained, being disconnected and having to
lead a mundane existence, frustrated at life’s trivialities.
Anxious about things that have nothing to do with the cause (of the disease), she
focuses on all her little aches and pains, these become major issues, she is unable to let
go and she cannot transcend them.
No mirrors, no mirrors
•
She is not willing to look at herself; it would be unbearable because she would see the
truth, the reality that she does not really have a life, just a token gesture for vibrancy,
joy and living.

84
The underlying cause: Embrace of the Mother, care and nurturing of the child.
The fundamental problem is in the relationship between mother and child. It is an outstanding
medicine for those who have not received the love they needed from their mother or for a
mother who does not know how to give that love.
It is common in the personal history that love has not been expressed: affection, kisses, hugs,
loving support or that zealous protection that a natural mother affords her child in the threat of
danger.
Indicated in situations where carers were absent of unaware of the child’s needs. They will
say that their mother was cold and distant, of that they were robbed of nurture.
The lack of mothering, caring and nurturing generates an inability to see and to embrace the
whole. The positive dimension of this perspective is that of a caring mother who looks after
all the needs of her children and family, like Jung states in his book “The Four archetypes”,
see page 56-57, the giver of all in abundance, like mother earth.
Positive seed essence
•
•
The resolution of this state is realizing that there is a bigger picture, that she can let go
of the small things and detail to concentrate on seeing things from a higher perspective
and not just focus on the problem at hand. There is a program that had to be removed;
the program that the little things were the issues. She realises that she has chosen the
painful, hard path, and that she always soldiered through. On letting this program go,
she can see her way through, let go of remorse and punishment, and be understanding
and compassionate to herself.
Ultimately it is a move to embrace herself, to mother herself, to nurture herself and
love herself. With this come love, nurturing, abundance and the ability to give birth to
her real self.
The field and the sky.. Earth to the heavens
•
The central issue in Lapis Lazuli often appears around the idea of the field. This word
was used prominently in the proving and in cured cases. On one hand a person who is
searching, digging in a defined place in the field. The field here means a place where
you find a natural resource. This place is limited, a place of finite possibilities. Here
she is only finding bareness. The other side of this is the sky, a place with a full aerial
view, unlimited with unlimited possibilities. It envelopes everything. Lapis allows a
sense of expansiveness and freedom, in terms of perspective, understanding, beauty
and love.
Positive keywords

Compassionate with herself; Embraced, feels; Embraces, self; Embrace, the whole; Higher
perspective; Loves, self; Mothering, self; Nurtures, self; Protected; Skyward, moving; Soft on

4g. Key mental themes
The amusement park
•
It is as if he lives in an amusement park. He, his family & friends are all engaging in
rides of pleasure and thrill. The world of materialism and the senses. Life is nothing
but the seeking of material excitements, a superficial existence. When he realises this
is empty and there is nothing there spurs his search for real connection,
communication, love and nurturing. He needs to see the big picture, to let go of the old
programs and travel beyond the superficial amusements of life to find a sense of
meaning.
Communication, freedom of expression and connectedness
•
•
Implicit to the search for meaning in Lapis is connection to others. It can be with
partner, family or friends. Lapis may feel that the communication with others is
ineffective, mundane or focused on the trivial or superficial. His relationships have
descended into offensive nuances, the persistent chatter of superficialities, swearing or
persistent arguments. There is a great desire to communicate on an intimate level, to
exchange, understand, feel and experience that joy of togetherness.
Lapis enables people to communicate and express their feelings and activates the
throat charka. It may help autism and shy introverted individuals. It is excellent for
personal articulation and the expression of buried emotions.
Grieving over death of the mother
•
•
For people, especially women who are still mourning over the death of someone in the
family long after the natural time. Mediterranean women who dress in black forever
after such a death. These women have been totally focused on the trivial aspects of
home and being a housewife. Having identified so deeply with their role of nurturer
they are unable to receive nurture themselves. Their lives have become dead, empty
and purposeless. In the loss of a loved one their whole world is lost and they
themselves become as if dead and empty.
The very process of being a mother seems to naturally invoke an eternity of loving,
caring and protection that has the power to transcend death.
4h. Psyche
Animals & colours
•
•
Many animals appear in meditations and dreams. The most prominent being the
African Savannah animals. The characteristics of this are a profusion of wildlife.
Colours: go hand in hand with the profusion of life. Deep aqua, jade, deep blue, deep
purple; red, yellow, gold and black. Primary colours being red, yellow and blue.
Intellect
•
It stimulates mental clarity and the ancients recommended it in dementia.
86
Mundane things and the mother
•
There is much investment in the mundane things of life; they often become the whole
focus, preventing perception of a bigger picture and the meaningful things in life.
There can also be a frustration with these mundane things.
Character and dress
•
•
•
Women in black and are in permanent mourning.
Men who are coarse, ignorant and mouth off offensively.
Refugees who are coming home.
4i. Spiritual themes
Embracing the whole Earth
•
•
On the spiritual plane Lapis stimulates a movement from the small picture of our small
human existence to the big picture of connectedness with everyone and everything, a
sense of unity and universal loving.
Lapis calls for nurturing and healing for all persons, beings and things on earth. It is a
true movement to the bigger picture in which everyone is included in the loving acts
and a healing poultice of motherly love is wrapped around the Earth.
Hanuman, the monkey god
•
•
The monkey god of India appeared in the proving. He was a great warrior and inertly
he was profoundly devoted to loving nature. Although a monkey and a warrior he is
renowned for this gentlemanly manners, his etiquette, his great sensitivity and
kindness even to foes. Sensitivity to the pain of others and at all times his motive was
deep devotion to Rama, the Divine King of ancient India. The quality of this kindness,
sensitivity and undying love link him to the love of the mother.
Hanuman was the incarnation of strength, vitality and virility. In a cure case it was
commented “my issue is about protection and strength, I had given my parents role to
protect me”.

•

gland. Additionally cleaning the emotions through this charka is clearly indicated.

5b. Conclusion from comparing Schadde – Timmerman.
Anne Schadde did triturate the remedy up to C3 to potentize it to a C30, which was the
potency used for the proving. As explained before, in the trituration proving the substance is
triturated up to a C5-level (2 hours longer than a C3). These triturations are the main
information source for the trituration proving. So basically the preparation of the remedy in
the beginning of both provings is the same, the substance needs to be grinded or triturated in
order to be able to potentize it further. The reason for this is that the stone in its ungrounded
form would never dissolve in water and its healing powers would never come apparent .
46
In Schadde’s proving there are a lot more modalities mentioned in the physical symptoms.
This can be due to a more thorough follow up of the provers and their symptoms. In
Hahnemannian provers a supervisor is assigned to every prover or every two provers . The
meaning for this is not to miss any information, like modalities and observations and to make
symptoms as complete as possible. So the loss of information is most probable in the
trituration proving, since there was no supervisor assigned to each prover. Provers were
basically writing down the symptoms their own and sharing them afterwards in the group
meetings. Often, if people are not reminded of something unusual remains ignored or is just
forgotten, this is the disadvantage of such trituration provings but it could be avoided by
assigning supervisor/s to a small group of provers, this of course takes more time and effort to
be put into the whole process and sometimes that is not possible due to people’s everyday
responsibilities.
47
In Schadde’s proving though there is a lack of C4 level awareness, the possible real cause
behind the symptoms remains unfolded. There is no mention of cruelty possibly being behind
the anger, nor lack of warmth and nurture from the mother. Prover 8 does mention the feeling
of other dimensions that he can not reach because of the “not wanting to see” attitude. In the
trituration proving this is expressed as superficial way to dealing with things, ignoring or
suppressing them.
There is also no C5 level or archetypical information in which the archetype of the mother is
mentioned, only the physical aspect of the mother is expressed in the form of “Delusion being
pregnant”, which peculiar enough is absent in the trituration provings, since no prover
expressed that particular feeling or association.
Most of symptoms are otherwise the same or similar, just expressed in other words by the
provers and there are other symptoms that are completely absent in either one of the provings,
this can have to do with the provers susceptibility or the fact that there has been some
information lost. It can also be due to the provers groups, Schadde used 12 provers for the
proving, in the trituration proving there were 20 provers . In this case it does not seem to have
anything to do with the method the remedy is prepared by, as it is almost the same. The
grinded stone is in the remedy either way.

Very important is to recognize that the symptoms mentioned from the trituration of Lapis
Lazuli for Schadde’s proving were basically the same as the ones experienced by the provers
in The Hague. Some examples of these symptoms are :
50
-
Sensation of awareness and clarity.
Sensation of meditative calm and relaxation.
Gazing into empty space.
Slow oncoming sadness, melancholy with the sensation of constriction in the chest, as
if something was weighting on the chest. She has to take deep breaths; it feels
burdensome, which makes her sad.
Cardiac irregularity.
Burning of the eyes.
Pressure on ears.
Stabbing in left ear.
Pleasantly cool sensation on the body’s surface.
The conclusion to this would be that the substances give away the same kind of information if
prepared the same or similar way and that the slight alteration or differences in symptoms can
be mostly due to susceptibility of the provers and loss of information. It seems to be true
though that as claimed by the C4-practicing homeopaths , triturating the substance up to C4
and C5 level does add extra information that mostly remains unveiled in a regular proving. It
may be possible to gain this kind of information by other methods, like meditation. Peter
Tumminello is known for adding meditation provings to his Hahnemannian provings.

5d. Conclusion from comparing Tumminello – Timmerman.
At first sight it seems quite obvious that the differences between Tumminello’s proving (from
Immersion) and the one in The Hague are a lot more prominent than between Schadde’s
proving and Timmerman’s. In this case we need to take into consideration that the method of
preparation of the remedy is different. Tumminello did not choose to grind or triturate the
stone but made a “Bach- remedy” out of it (see beginning page 83). This might be the reason
why most of the symptoms seem to be different. There are some similarities as you can see in
the tables above but the differences (in Italic) are much more prominent.
The peculiarity about the Australian proving is that besides taking the remedy, there were
meditation sessions upon the substance, which in this case, delivered the spiritual or aetiology
of the pathology in this remedy that we can not find in Schadde’s proving. In Tumminello’s
proving the essence of the remedy is given as:
“It is about someone that focuses on small, trivial, superficial things and therefore can not
see the big picture, the purpose of his life and the abundance of natural love & nurturing
available around him. It seems then easier to avoid the pain by not wanting to see and
focussing on a superficial existence that ultimately will lead to melancholy and isolation, and
not being able to find the way to the bigger picture, the light or spirituality”. According to
Tumminello’s proving the cause of this is a lack of love and or nurturing by the own mother
in childhood.
Tumminello’s conclusion about the essence of the remedy comes closer to the C4-C5
information of Timmerman’s trituration in which the archetypical figure of the Mother
appears in the form of mother Mary, the one who brings light in time of darkness.
Throughout the trituration proving we see indeed some sort of superficial way of
communicating with others, blaming others, not wanting to see yourself and therefore
suppressing emotions. In the trituration proving there seems to be an unbearable grief and
darkness that is brought on by life’s cruelty, in which eventually the love and nurturing of the
mother (Mary) will bring on the solution and relief. But it does not directly link this grief to
the death of the mother and it does not literally tell that is due to a lack of love and nurturing
although we could conclude that the pain and grief, the death and darkness are there when the
mother is not, and they disappear when she comes back.
52
Frans Vermeulen “Prisma” Arcana of Materia Medica Illuminated p. 967
96
So the conclusion to this comparison would be that in this case the way in which the remedy
is prepared does alter the outcome of the symptoms, at least partially, there are different and
new symptoms added to the remedy’s picture. It seems to be so that this method is more
effective in revealing spiritual information than a regular Hahnemannian proving, even
though this could be due to the meditation techniques added to this proving and not only due
to the susceptibility of the provers.
Chapter 6
Differential Diagnoses
53
Going back to my comments on 2e (page 24) about the issues to be expected in Lapis Lazuli
according to its components proved out to be pretty close. In the provings we have indeed
seen problems with relating to others; grief & introspection, need for attention and forsaken
feeling, ego problems, religion, spirituality, difficulty with sharing things (deep emotions).
The feelings of being used or abused and the battling and struggling seem to be a bit less
prominent; these are more Ferrum issues which are also found in Lapis Lazuli in small
amounts. What we do see is the fighting (quarrelsome), battling, concentration problems and
haemorrhages from nose and anus (Schadde 4b page 72).
On the physical level we see among other symptoms and sensations coldness and heat,
dryness, gland affections, headaches, thirst, and haemorrhages, most of these themes were
already expected (2e page 24).
Therefore we could conclude that the components in a substance bring out similar or the same
symptoms as they would by themselves. Example: substances containing alumina would bring
out dryness, which is a prominent feature in the remedy Alumina.
Since Lapis has a lot of symptoms in common with Alumina, Silica, Calcium Carbonicum,
Sulphur, Natrium Muriatricum, etc I am just going to list the differences that are worth
mentioned for being completely different or opposite, I also mention a general list of
similarities. All the information about detailed similarities can be found in any good Materia
Medica book.

99
6b. Minerals/Metals – remarkable differences & common traits.
Alumina – Lapis Lazuli:
-
-
Alumina has dryness of mucus membranes & skin plus a tendency to faulty motoric
paralysis with coordination problems. In Lapis Lazuli we see motion problems that
have to do with rheumatic or arthritic processes. (Unable to stretch out legs & painProver 16/C3). No coordination problems.
Confusion of identity is absent in Lapis Lazuli: Lapis wonders more about the goals
and purpose of life (Provers 10, 12, 13 C3).
Alumina – no heat or violent sensations and symptoms, has only lack of heat.
Eyes – Alumina dryness, Lapis lachrymation (Prover 2 C1)
Menses – scanty, in Lapis profuse (Prover 7 C4).
Alumina: dryness, lack of concentration, confusion, being hurried, gastrointestinal problems.
Silica – Lapis Lazuli:
-
Silica has a prominent lack of confidence and is very sensitive and yielding. In Lapis
we see more of an indifference to others, communication problems and not yielding,
rigid attitudes and quarrelling (3, 7, 17 C1).
Menses too early and scanty. Lapis profuse with swelling of breasts (Prover 7 C4).
Slow, chronic processes, no violent symptoms.
Silica: Neurasthenic symptoms and increased irritability of the nervous system & strengthen
reflexes. Abscesses (see also Tumminello’s proving of Lapis under Skin & Generals page 87)
& lymphatic symptoms (throat, tonsils).
Calcium Carbonicum – Lapis Lazuli:
-
Calcium does not want to be seen by others, Lapis does not want to see himself.
Again, slow processes in Calcium, especially lymphatic, rather violent symptoms in
Lapis (Prover 1, 7, 11, 17, C1/C3).
Profuse perspiration of Calcium, Lapis a lot more dryness (of skin, mucus membranes,
stool).
Calcium can not bear cruelty and it affects him a lot. Lapis experiences more of
soberness and indifference (1, 3, 9, 10, 11, 12, 17 C1-C4)
Calcium Carbonicum: Gland affections, skin and bones. Issues with food & eating. Ice
coldness, to the bones.
Sulphur – Lapis Lazuli:
-
Sulphur seems to be untidy; Lapis wants order & cleanness around him.
Sulphur is < Bathing, Lapis wants to wash off (Prover 1/C1 16/C1).
< Warmth, Lapis > warmth of sun.
Sulphur: heat, congestion, burning & redness. Lack of reality. Do not listen to anybody, want
to be the centre of attention. Desires sweets.
100
Natrium Muriatricum – Lapis Lazuli:
-
This remedy is the most similar to Lapis. It is hard to find any remarkable differences.
Periodicity of Nat-m is not (yet) seen in Lapis.
Nat-m is worse 9-11 am. Lapis seems to be worse at night (cold, sleeplessness & pain
– Schadde)
Natrium Muriatricum: Depression, forsaken feeling, withdrawal & suppressed grief, easily
hurt, headaches, dryness. Bitterness about what has been done to him.
Muriatricums – Lapis Lazuli:
-
Feeling of pity & unfairness
Self pity from a need to be nurtured and cared for.
Problems with the mother, mother figure.
Want of attention & lost hope of getting it.
Themes of water & the sea (Schadde).
Arsenic – Lapis Lazuli:
-
Fear of death of Arsenic is not present in Lapis. Death seems like a rather appealing
option (Aurum) (4, 3, 6, 7, 17 C1-C3).
Arsenic’s drinks often but small sips. Lapis drinks a couple of glasses of water after
each other (1, 17/C1)
Arsenic > company. Lapis aversion to company.
Arsenic: Restlessness, anxiety, fear, obsession for tidiness & weariness, lack of heat. Burning
pains. Quarrelsome, materialistic and cruel. Terminal patients.
Aurum – Lapis Lazuli:
-
Aurum, also suicidal from pains, Lapis more sadness.
Aurum, workaholic, industrious but with ambition and strong sense of responsibility.
Lapis does not seem to have that kind of ambition, does not need to be at the top.
Lapis indifference to work, can not concentrate there (1, 16)
Aurum > Cold bathing.
Putrid taste in mouth, Lapis, bitter (3), sweetish (5) & metallic (Schadde)
Aurum: Depressed, melancholic mood (everything black inside, life has no value). Suicidal.
Mental exertion. Reserved & alone; no friends, just a few superficial contacts. Heaviness.
Congestion in various organs.
Mercury – Lapis Lazuli:
-
Mercury is sensitive to temperatures, to cold. Lapis ice coldness to the bones.
Mercury skin, almost constantly moist, (persistent dryness of skin contraindicates
Mercury), Lapis dry skin, shrivelled, like a mummy (17).
Mercury, profuse salivation during sleep. Lapis dryness of mucus membranes & also
mouth (11, 20).
101
Mercury: Memory weakened and loss of will power. Weary of life. Time passes slowly.
Extremely closed. Quarrelsome complaining of relations and surroundings. Indifference to
everything. Cruelty, mischief. Dreams of water & floods, trembling in limbs (Schadde).
Ferrum – Lapis Lazuli:
-
A lot more similarities than differences. Anger in Lapis seems to be more prominent &
violent.
Ferrum does not seem to be suicidal, loathing of life or any of these symptoms. Lapis
does (1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 15, 17).
Ferrum: Irritability. Desire solitude. Alternation of moods. Circulation problems. Headaches.
Argentum Nitricum – Lapis Lazuli:
-
Arg-n: can not hide his feelings. Lapis can not hide his anger, though he tries.
Arg-n: desires sweets & < sweets. Lapis does not < from sweets.
Arg-n: one of the hottest remedies. Lapis ice cold.
Arg-n: desires company to express feelings, Lapis avoids company, does not want to
share feelings, only when it seems too much (7).
Arg-n: loud eructations. Lapis, not in the proving.
Argentum Nitricum: Anticipation, hurry, anxiety when time is set. Brain fag, weakness of
memory. Distension, flatulence in abdomen.
Causticum – Lapis Lazuli:
-
Caust has a lot more sympathy and issues with the group. Lapis has more tendency to
isolation.
Caust paralysis due to damage in nervous system & then muscles. Lapis’s pathology
seems to focus more on rheumatic like complaints (Schadde/16)
Caust > wet weather, > sips of cold water. Aversion to sweets. Lapis does not seem to
have these modalities, has a strong desire for sweets. (7, 8)
Causticum: Anxious forebodings, can not stand injustice & sensitive to authority. Chronic
grief. Fanatism & rigidity. Quarrelsome & excitable.
Phosphor Acid – Lapis Lazuli:
-
Ph-ac: mild & yielding disposition. Lapis seems to be more of a rigid or quarrelsome
type (page 38/39).
Ph-ac: craves fruit & juicy refreshing things mainly.
Ph-ac: strong debility from loss of fluids. Lapis does not.
Ph-ac: ailments from prolonged grief, disappointed love, homesickness. Apathetic, burn-out

APPENDIX A
Lapis Lazuli POEM 54
I have heard that hysterical women say
they are sick of the palette and fiddle-bow.
Of poets that are always gay,
For everybody knows or else should know
That if nothing drastic is done
Aeroplane and Zeppelin will come out.
Pitch like King Billy bomb-balls in
until the town laid beaten flat.
All perform their tragic play,
There struts Hamlet, there is Lear,
That's Ophelia, that Cordelia;
Yet they, should the last scene be there,
The great stage curtain about to drop,
If worthy their prominent part in the play,
Do not break up their lines to weep.
They know that Hamlet and Lear are gay;
Gaiety transfiguring all that dread.
All men have aimed at, found and lost;
Black out; Heaven blazing into the head:
Tragedy wrought to its uttermost.
Though Hamlet rambles and Lear rages,
And all the drop-scenes drop at once
Upon a hundred thousand stages,
It cannot grow by an inch or an ounce.
On their own feet they came, or On shipboard,'
Camel-back; horse-back, ass-back, mule-back,
Old civilisations put to the sword.
Then they and their wisdom went to rack:
No handiwork of Callimachus,
Who handled marble as if it were bronze,
Made draperies that seemed to rise
When sea-wind swept the corner, stands;
His long lamp-chimney shaped like the stem
Of a slender palm, stood but a day;
All things fall and are built again,
And those that build them again are gay.
Two Chinamen, behind them a third,
Are carved in lapis lazuli,
Over them flies a long-legged bird,
A symbol of longevity;
The third, doubtless a serving-man,
Carries a musical instrument.
Every discoloration of the stone,
Every accidental crack or dent,
Seems a water-course or an avalanche,
Or lofty slope where it still snows
Though doubtless plum or cherry-branch
Sweetens the little half-way house
Those Chinamen climb towards, and I
Delight to imagine them seated there;
There, on the mountain and the sky,
On all the tragic scene they stare.
One asks for mournful melodies;
Accomplished fingers begin to play.
Their eyes mid many wrinkles, their eyes,
Their ancient, glittering eyes, are gay.

APPENDIX B
Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch (1863–1944). The Sleeping Beauty and other Fairy Tales 55
“The Sleeping Beauty”
ONCE upon a time there lived a King and a Queen, who lacked but one thing on earth to make them entirely happy. The King was
young, handsome, and wealthy; the Queen had a nature as good and gentle as her face was beautiful; and they adored one another,
having married for love—which among kings and queens is not always the rule. Moreover, they reigned over a kingdom at peace, and
their people were devoted to them. What more, then, could they possibly want?
Well, they wanted one thing very badly, and the lack of it grieved them more than words can tell. They had no child. Vows,
pilgrimages, all ways were tried; yet for a long while nothing came of it all, and the poor Queen especially was in despair.
At last, however, to her own and her husband’s inexpressible joy, she give birth to a daughter. As soon as the palace guns announced
this event, the whole nation went wild with delight. Flags waved everywhere, bells were set pealing until the steeples rocked, crowds
tossed up their hats and cheered, while the soldiers presented arms, and even strangers meeting in the street fell upon each other’s neck,
exclaiming: “Our Queen has a daughter! Yes, yes—Our Queen has a daughter! Long live the little Princess!”
A name had now to be found for the royal babe; and the King and Queen, after talking over some scores of names, at length decided
to call her Aurora, which means The Dawn. The Dawn itself (thought they) was never more beautiful than this darling of theirs. The
next business, of course, was to hold a christening. They agreed that it must be a magnificent one; and as a first step they invited all the
Fairies they could find in the land to be godmothers to the Princess Aurora; that each one of them might bring her a gift, as was the
custom with Fairies in those days, and so she might have all the perfections imaginable. After making long inquiries—for I should tell
you that all this happened not so many hundred years ago, when Fairies were already growing somewhat scarce—they found seven.
But this again pleased them, because seven is a lucky number.
After the ceremonies of the christening, while the trumpeters sounded their fanfares and the guns boomed out again from the great
tower, all the company returned to the Royal Palace to find a great feast arrayed. Seats of honour had been set for the seven fairy
godmothers, and before each was laid a dish of honour, with a dish-cover of solid gold, and beside the dish a spoon, a knife, and a fork,
all of pure gold and all set with diamonds and rubies. But just as they were seating themselves at the table, to the dismay of every one
there appeared in the door-way an old crone, dressed in black and leaning on a crutched stick. Her chin and her hooked nose almost
met together, like a pair of nut-crackers, for she had very few teeth remaining; but between them she growled to the guests in a terrible
voice:
“I am the Fairy Uglyane! Pray where are your King’s manners, that I have not been invited?”
She had in fact been overlooked; and this was not surprising, because she lived at the far end of the country, in a lonely tower set
around by the forest. For fifty years she had never come out of this tower and every one believed her to be dead or enchanted. That,
you must know, is the commonest way the Fairies have of ending: they lock themselves up in a tower or within a hollow oak, and are
never seen again.
The King, though she chose to accuse his manners, was in fact the politest of men. He hurried to express his regrets, led her to table
with his own hand, and ordered a dish to be set for her; but with the best will in the world he could not give her a dish-cover such as the
others had, because seven only had been made for the seven invited Fairies. The old crone received his excuses very ungraciously,
while accepting a seat. It was plain that she had taken deep offence. One of the younger Fairies, Hippolyta by name, who sat by,
overheard her mumbling threats between her teeth; and fearing she might bestow some unlucky gift upon the little Princess, went as
soon as she rose from table and hid herself close by the cradle, behind the tapestry, that she might have the last word and undo, so far
as she could, what evil the Fairy Uglyane might have in her mind.
She had scarcely concealed herself before the other Fairies began to advance, one by one, to bestow their gifts on the Princess. The
youngest promised her that she should be the most beautiful creature in the world; the next, that she should have the wit of an angel;
the third, a marvellous grace in all her ways; the fourth, that she should dance to perfection; the fifth, that she should sing like a
nightingale; the sixth, that she should play exquisitely on all instruments of music.
Now came the turn of the old Fairy Uglyane. Her head nodded with spite and old age together, as she bent over the cradle and shook
her crutched staff above the head of the pretty babe, who slept on sweetly, too young and too innocent as yet to dream of any such
thing as mischief in this world.
“This is my gift to you, Princess Aurora,” announced the hag, still in her creaking voice that shook as spitefully as her body. “I
promise that one day you shall pierce your hand with a spindle, and on that day you shall surely die!”
At these terrible words the poor Queen fell back fainting into her husband’s arms. A trembling seized the whole Court; the ladies
were in tears, and the younger lords and knights were calling out to seize and burn the wicked witch, when the young Fairy stepped
forth from behind the tapestry, and passing by Uglyane, who stood scornful in the midst of this outcry, she thus addressed their
Majesties:—
“Take comfort, O King and Queen: your daughter shall not die thus. It is true, I have not the power wholly to undo what this elder
sister of mine has done. The Princess must indeed pierce her hand with a spindle; but, instead of dying, she shall only fall into a deep
slumber that shall last for many, many years, at the end of which a King’s son shall come and awake her. Whenever this misfortune
happens to your little Aurora, do not doubt that I, the Fairy Hippolyta, her godmother, shall get news of it and come at once to render
what help I may.”
The King, while declaring himself infinitely obliged to the good Fairy Hippolyta, could not help feeling that hers was but cold
comfort at the best. He gave orders to close the christening festivities at once, although the Fairy Uglyane, their spoil-joy, had already
taken her departure; passing unharmed through the crowd of folk, every one of whom wished her ill, and riding away—it was generally
agreed—upon a broomstick.
To satisfy the King’s faithful subjects, however,—who were unaware of any misadventure—the palace fireworks were duly let off,
with a grand set-piece wishing Long Life to the Princess Aurora! in all the colours of the rainbow. But His Majesty, after bowing from
the balcony amid the banging of rockets and hissing of Catherine wheels, retired to a private room with his Chamberlain, and there,
still amid the noise of explosions and cheering, drew up the first harsh proclamation of his reign. It forbade every one, on pain of death,
to use a spindle in spinning or even to have a spindle in his house. Heralds took copies of this proclamation and marched through the
land reading it, to the sound of trumpets from every market-place: and it gravely puzzled and distressed all who listened, for their

women folk prided themselves on their linen. Its fineness was a byword throughout the neighbouring kingdoms, and they knew
themselves to be famous for it. “But what sort of linen,” said they, “would His Majesty have us spin without spindles?”
They had a great affection, however (as we have seen), for their monarch; and for fifteen or sixteen years all the spinning-wheels
were silent throughout the land. The little Princess Aurora grew up without ever having seen one. But one day—the King and Queen
being absent at one of their country houses—she gave her governess the slip, and running at will through the palace and upstairs from
one chamber to another, she came at length to a turret with a winding staircase, from the top of which a strange whirring sound
attracted her and seemed to invite her to climb. As she mounted after the sound, on a sudden it ceased; but still she followed the stairs
and came, at the very top, to an open door through which she looked in upon a small garret where sat an honest old woman alone,
winding her distaff. The good soul had never, in sixteen years, heard of the King’s prohibition against spindles; and this is just the sort
of thing that happens in palaces.
“What are you doing, goody?” asked the Princess.
“I am spinning, pretty one,” answered the old woman, who did not know who she was.
“Spinning? What is that?”
“I wonder sometimes,” said the old woman, “what the world is coming to, in these days!” And that, of course, was natural enough,
and might occur to anybody after living so long as she had lived in a garret on the top of a tower. “Spinning,” she said wisely, “is
spinning, or was; and, gentle or simple, no one is fit to keep house until she has learnt to spin.”
“But how pretty it is!” said the Princess. “How do you do it? Give it to me and let me see if I can do so well.”
She had no sooner grasped the spindle—she was over-eager perhaps, or just a little bit clumsy, or maybe the fairy decree had so
ordained it—than it pierced her hand and she dropped down in a swoon.
The old trot in a flurry ran to the head of the stairs and called for help. There was no bell rope, and, her voice being weak with age
and her turret in the remotest corner of the palace, it was long before any one heard her in the servants’ hall. The servants, too—in the
absence of the King and Queen—were playing cards, and could not be interrupted by anybody until their game was finished. Then they
sat down and discussed whose business it was to attend on a call from that particular turret; and this again proved to be a nice point,
since nobody could remember having been summoned thither, and all were against setting up a precedent (as they called it). In the end
they decided to send up the lowest of the junior page-boys. But he had a weakness which he somehow forgot to mention—that of
fainting at the sight of blood. So when he reached the garret and fainted, the old woman had to begin screaming over again.
This time they sent up a scullery maid; who, being good-natured and unused to the ways of the palace, made the best haste she could
to the garret, whence presently she returned with the terrible news. The servants, who had gone back to their game, now dropped their
cards and came running. All the household, in fact, came pouring up the turret stairs; the palace physicians themselves crowding in
such numbers that the poor Princess Aurora would have been hard put to it for fresh air could fresh air have restored her. They dashed
water on her face, unlaced her, slapped her hands, tickled the soles of her feet, burned feathers under her nose, rubbed her temples with
Hungary-water. They held consultations over her, by twos and threes, and again in Grand Committee. But nothing would bring her to.
Meanwhile, a messenger had ridden off posthaste with the tidings, and while the doctors were still consulting and shaking their heads
the King himself came galloping home to the palace. In the midst of his grief he bethought him of what the Fairies had foretold; and
being persuaded that, since they had said it, this was fated to happen, he blamed no one but gave orders to carry the Princess to the
finest apartment in the palace, and there lay her on a bed embroidered with gold and silver.
At sight of her, she was so lovely, you might well have supposed that some bright being of the skies had floated down to earth and
there dropped asleep after her long journey. For her swoon had not taken away the warm tints of her complexion: her cheeks were like
carnations, her lips like coral: and though her eyes were closed and the long lashes would not lift, her soft breathing told that she was
not dead. The King commanded them all to leave her and let her sleep in peace until the hour of her awakening should arrive.
Now when the accident befell our Princess the good Fairy Hippolyta, who had saved her life, happened to be in the Kingdom of
Mataquin, twelve thousand leagues away; but news of it was brought to her in an incredibly short space of time by a little dwarf who
owned a pair of seven-league boots. (These were boots in which you could walk seven leagues at a single stride.) She set off at once to
the help of her beloved goddaughter, and behold in an hour this good Fairy arrived at the palace, in a fiery chariot drawn by dragons.
Our King met her and handed her down from the chariot. She approved of all that he had done; but, greatly foreseeing as she was, she
bethought her that, as all mortals perish within a hundred years or so, when the time came for the Princess to awake she would be
distressed at finding herself orphaned and alone in this old castle.
So this is what she did. She touched with her wand everything and everybody in the palace: the King, the Queen; the ministers and
privy councillors; the archbishop (who was the Grand Almoner), the bishops and the minor clergy; the maids-of-honour, ladies of the
bedchamber, governesses, gentlemen-in-waiting, equerries, heralds, physicians, officers, masters of the household, cooks, scullions,
lackeys, guards, Switzers, pages, footmen. She touched the Princess’s tutors and the Court professors in the midst of their deep studies.
She touched likewise all the horses in the stables, with the grooms; the huge mastiffs in the yard; even Tiny, the Princess’s little pet
dog, and Fluff, her black-and-white cat, that lay coiled on a cushion by her bedside.
The instant the Fairy Hippolyta touched them they all fell asleep, not to awake until the same moment as their mistress, that all might
be ready to wait on her when she needed them. The very spits at the fire went to sleep, loaded as they were with partridges and
pheasants; and the fire went to sleep too. All this was done in a moment: the Fairies were never long about their business in those days.
But it so happened that one of the King’s councillors, the Minister of Marine (his office dated from a previous reign when the
kingdom had hoped to conquer and acquire a seaboard) had overslept himself that morning and came late to the palace without any
knowledge of what had befallen. He felt no great fear that his unpunctuality would be remarked, the King (as he supposed) being
absent in the country; nevertheless he took the precaution of letting himself in by a small postern door and so missed being observed by
the Fairy and touched by her wand. Entering his office, and perceiving that his under-secretary (usually so brisk) and all his clerks
rested their heads on their desks in attitudes of sleep, he drew the conclusion that something had happened, for he was an excellent
judge of natural slumber. The farther he penetrated into the palace, the stronger his suspicions became. He withdrew on tiptoe. Though
by nature and habit a lazy man, he was capable of sudden decision, and returning to his home he caused notices to be posted up,
forbidding any one to approach the castle, the inmates of which were suffering from an Eastern but temporary affliction known as the
Sleeping Sickness.
These notices were unnecessary, for within a few hours there grew up, all around the park, such a number of trees of all sizes, and
such a tangle of briars and undergrowth, that neither beast nor man could find a passage. They grew until nothing but the tops of the
castle towers could be seen, and these only from a good way off. There was no mistake about it: the Fairy had done her work well, and
the Princess might sleep with no fear of visits from the inquisitive.
One day, many, many years afterwards, the incomparable young Prince Florimond happened to ride a-hunting on that side of the
country which lay next to the tangled forest, and asked: “What were those towers he saw pushing up above the midst of a great thick
wood?”
They all answered him as they heard tell. Some said it was an old castle haunted by ghosts.
Others, that all the wizards and witches of the country met there to keep Sabbath.
The most general opinion was that an Ogre dwelt there, and that he carried off thither all the children he could catch, to eat them at

his ease. No one could follow him, for he alone knew how to find a passage through the briars and brambles. The Prince could not tell
which to believe of all these informants, for all gave their versions with equal confidence, as commonly happens with those who talk
on matters of which they can know nothing for certain. He was turning from one to another in perplexity, when a peasant spoke up and
said:—
“Your Highness, long ago I heard my father tell that there was in yonder castle a Princess, the most beautiful that ever man saw; that
she must lie asleep there for many, many years; and that one day she will be awakened by a King’s son, for whom she was destined.”
At these words Prince Florimond felt himself a-fire. He believed, without weighing it, that he could accomplish this fine adventure;
and spurred on by love and ambition, he resolved to explore then and there and discover the truth for himself.
Leaping down from his horse he started to run towards the wood, and had almost reached the edge of it before the attendant courtiers
guessed his design. They called to him to come back, but he ran on, and was about to fling himself boldly into the undergrowth, when
as by magic all the great trees, the shrubs, the creepers, the ivies, briars and brambles, unlaced themselves of their own accord and
drew aside to let him pass. He found himself within a long glade or avenue, at the end of which glimmered the walls of an old castle;
and towards this he strode. It surprised him somewhat that none of his attendants were following him; the reason being that as soon as
he had passed through it, the undergrowth drew close as ever again. He heard their voices, fainter and fainter behind him, beyond the
barrier, calling, beseeching him, to desist. But he held on his way without one backward look. He was a Prince, and young, and
therefore valiant.
He came to the castle, and pushing aside the ivies that hung like a curtain over the gateway, entered a wide outer court and stood still
for a moment, holding his breath, while his eyes travelled over a scene that might well have frozen them with terror. The court was
silent, dreadfully silent; yet it was by no means empty. On all hands lay straight, stiff bodies of men and beasts, seemingly all dead.
Nevertheless, as he continued to gaze, his courage returned; for the pimpled noses and ruddy faces of the Switzers told him that they
were no worse than asleep; and their cups, which yet held a few heeltaps of wine, proved that they had fallen asleep over a drinkingbout.
He stepped by them and passed across a second great court paved with marble; he mounted a broad flight of marble steps leading to
the main doorway; he entered a guardroom, just within the doorway, where the guards stood in rank with shouldered muskets, every
man of them asleep and snoring his best. He made his way through a number of rooms filled with ladies and gentlemen, some standing,
others sitting, but all asleep. He drew aside a heavy purple curtain, and once more held his breath; for he was looking into the great
Hall of State where, at a long table, sat and slumbered the King with his Council. The Lord Chancellor slept in the act of dipping pen
into inkpot; the Archbishop in the act of taking snuff; and between the spectacles on the Archbishop’s nose and the spectacles on the
Lord Chancellor’s a spider had spun a beautiful web.
Prince Florimond tiptoed very carefully past these august sleepers and, leaving the hall by another door, came to the foot of the grand
staircase. Up this, too, he went; wandered along a corridor to his right, and, stopping by hazard at one of the many doors, opened it and
looked into a bath-room lined with mirrors and having in its midst, sunk in the floor, a huge round basin of whitest porcelain wherein a
spring of water bubbled deliciously. Three steps led down to the bath, and at the head of them stood a couch, with towels, and courtsuit laid ready, exquisitely embroidered and complete to the daintiest of lace ruffles and the most delicate of body linen.
Then the Prince bethought him that he had ridden far before ever coming to the wood; and the mirrors told him that he was also
somewhat travel-stained from his passage through it. So, having by this time learnt to accept any new wonder without question, he
undressed himself and took a bath, which he thoroughly enjoyed. Nor was he altogether astonished, when he tried on the clothes, to
find that they fitted him perfectly. Even the rosetted shoes of satin might have been made to his measure.
Having arrayed himself thus hardily, he resumed his quest along the corridor. The very next door he tried opened on a chamber all
panelled with white and gold; and there, on a bed the curtains of which were drawn wide, he beheld the loveliest vision he had ever
seen: a Princess, seemingly about seventeen or eighteen years old, and of a beauty so brilliant that he could not have believed this
world held the like.
But she lay still, so still … Prince Florimond drew near, trembling and wondering, and sank on his knees beside her. Still she lay,
scarcely seeming to breathe, and he bent and touched with his lips the little hand that rested, light as a roseleaf, on the coverlet. …
With that, as the long spell of her enchantment came to an end, the Princess awaked; and looking at him with eyes more tender than a
first sight of him might seem to excuse:—
“Is it you, my Prince?” she said. “You have been a long while coming!”
The Prince, charmed by these words, and still more by the manner in which they were spoken, knew not how to find words for the
bliss in his heart. He assured her that he loved her better than his own self. Their speech after this was not very coherent; they gazed at
one another for longer stretches than they talked; but if eloquence lacked, there was plenty of love. He, to be sure, showed the more
embarrassment; and no need to wonder at this—she had had time to think over what to say to him; for I hold it hot unlikely (though the
story does not say anything of this) that the good Fairy Hippolyta had taken care to amuse her, during her long sleep, with some
pleasurable dreams. In short, the Princess Aurora and the Prince Florimond conversed for four hours, and still without saying the half
they had to say.
Meanwhile all the palace had awaked with the Princess. In the Council Chamber the King opened his eyes and requested the Lord
Chancellor to read that last sentence of his over again a little more distinctly. The Lord Chancellor, dipping his quill into the dry
inkpot, asked the Archbishop in a whisper how many t’s there were in “regrettable.” The Archbishop, taking a pinch of snuff that had
long ago turned to dust, answered with a terrific sneeze, which again was drowned by the striking of all the clocks in the palace, as they
started frantically to make up for lost time. Dogs barked, doors banged; the Princess’s parrot screamed in his cage and was answered
by the peacocks squawking from the terrace; amid which hubbub the Minister for Agriculture, forgetting his manners, made a trumpet
of his hands and bawled across the table, begging His Majesty to adjourn for dinner. In short, every one’s first thought was of his own
business; and, as they were not all in love, they were ready to die with hunger.
Even the Queen, who had dropped asleep while discussing with her maids-of-honour the shade of mourning which most properly
expressed regret for royal personages in a trance, lost her patience at length, and sent one of her attendants with word that she, for her
part, was keen-set for something to eat, and that in her young days it had been customary for young ladies released from enchantment
to accept the congratulations of their parents without loss of time. The Prince Florimond, by this message recalled to his devoirs,
helped the Princess to rise. She was completely dressed, and very magnificently too.
Taking his beloved Princess Aurora by the hand, he led her to her parents, who embraced her passionately and—their first transports
over—turned to welcome him as a son, being charmed (quite apart from their gratitude) by the modest gallantry of his address. They
passed into a great dining-room lined with mirrors, where they supped and were served by the royal attendants. Violins and hautboys
discoursed music that was ancient indeed, but excellent, and the meal was scarcely concluded before the company enjoyed a very
pleasant surprise.
Prince Florimond, having no eyes but for his love, might be excused if he forgot that his attendants must, long before now, have
carried home their report, and that his parents would be in deep distress, wondering what had become of him. But the King, the
Princess’s father, had a truly royal habit of remembering details, especially when it concerned setting folks at their ease. Before dinner
he had dispatched a messenger to carry word to Prince Florimond’s father, that his son was safe, and to acquaint him briefly with what

had befallen. The messenger, riding through the undergrowth—which now obligingly parted before him as it had, a while ago, to admit
the Prince—and arriving at the out-skirts of the wood, found there a search-party vainly endeavouring to break through the barrier,
with the Prince’s aged father standing by and exhorting them in person, to whom he delivered his message. Trembling with relief—for
he truly supposed his son to be lost beyond recall—the old man entreated the messenger to turn back and escort him. So he arrived, and
was ushered into the hall.
The situation, to be sure, was delicate. But when these two kings, both so well meaning, had met and exchanged courtesies, and the
one had raised the other by the hand to a place on the dais beside him, already and without speech they had almost accorded.
“I am an old man,” said the Prince’s father; “I have reigned long enough for my satisfaction, and now care for little in life but to see
my son happy.”
“I think I can promise you that,” said the Princess’s father, smiling, with a glance at the two lovers.
“I am old enough, at any rate, to have done with ambitions,” said the one.
“And I,” said the other, “have dreamed long enough, at any rate, to despise them. What matters ruling to either of us two, while we
see your son and my daughter reigning together?”
So it was agreed, then and there; and after supper, without loss of time, the Archbishop married the Prince Florimond and the
Princess Aurora in the chapel of the Castle. The two Kings and the Princess’s mother saw them to their chamber, and the first maid-ofhonour drew the curtain. They slept little—the Princesshad no occasion; but the Prince next morning led his bride back to the city,
where they were acclaimed by the populace and lived happy ever after, reigning in prosperity and honour.
MORAL
Ye Maids, to await some while a lover fond,
Rich, titled, debonair as Florimond,
Is reason; and who learns on fate to attend
Goes seldom unrewarded in the end—
“What! No one kiss us for a hundred years!”
There, la-la-la! I understood, my dears.
ANOTHER
Further, the story would suggest a doubt
That marriage may be happiest when deferr’d—
“Deferr’d?” you cry—“Deferr’d,” I see you pout,
—We’ll skip this moral, and attempt a third.
ANOTHER
Thirdly, our fable then appears to prove
Disparity of years no bar to love.
Crabb’d Age and Youth—But that’s an ancient quarrel,
And I’ll not interfere. There’s no third moral.

‘Savonds 8-12-04
Ik kom thuis met enorme honger gevoel, na 1 boterham vol
Ik kan niet direct in slaap vallen, raar meestal doe ik dat wel
Honger snachts
Koud- vooral de benen
Droom:
Ik heb een soort condylomata op mijn knieën, paarsig en gezwollen, ik zie vaten die erin lopen. Daarna vallen ze op de grond en laten ze
gaten (zweren) achter. Op de grond gaan ze groeien en een enorme bij komt en gaat erin om te eten.
Mijn zus en vader staan op straat, ik kom ze tegen. Mijn zus vertelt me dat mijn moeder kanker heeft en dat ze ergens in November dood zal
gaan. Zij weet precies de datum. Mijn moeder staat op eens achter mijn zus en kijkt alsof ze van niets weet. Ik heb het gevoel dat ze van niets
weet. Ik vind dat heel erg.
‘sochtends 9-12-04
Ik ga de deur uit en laat ik de verwarming aan staan. Doe ik nooit. Ik doe altijd alles uit. Van mijn vader overgenomen die gewoonte. Het kan
me niet schelen dat de verwarming aan blijft.
Irritatie omdat het heel druk is op straat. (meestal ook wel maar nu was ik heel snel geïrriteerd)
‘snachts 9-12-04
Wakker van de pijn (ongesteld geworden) dit heb ik altijd. Opvallend is dat bij het leggen van mijn linker hand op de buik, mijn inwendige
organen heel gedetailleerd kan voelen, alsof ik met mijn hand door de huid heen kan. Ik voelde mijn uterus heel goed.
‘sochtends 10-12-04
Ik weet dat ik gedroomd heb maar ik weet niet wat.
Ik voel me koud. Gedoucht met heel warm water, heet. Het brandt mijn huid maar ik vind het lekker. Dit is voor mij heel raar. Nooit eerder
gehad. Ik ben meestal heel warm.
Ik kijk in de spiegel en ik zie er ontzettend rond en gezwollen uit, mijn buik, heupen en benen. Ik vind dat lelijk, vreselijk. Het ziet er uit
alsof de verhouding met de rest van het lichaam niet klopt. Ook nog nooit eerder gehad.
Nog steeds koud. Verwarming aan (20 C) meestal staat ie op (15 C) en ik vind het warm zat.
Ik heb een T-shirt aan, fluwelen vest aan en een fleece trui erop. Alles blauw. Ook mijn ondergoed is vandaag blauw.

S’nachts heel kou, kan niet in slaap vallen wegens kou. Moet extra deken halen, dubbel gevouwen, vooral mijn bovenbenen en knieen zijn
koud. Ook mijn voeten, ijskoud. Dit is zeer ongewoon voor mij. Ik slaap meestal met een deken en de verwarming bijna uit. Nu 2 dekens een
111
dubbel gevouwen en de verwarming hoger.
14-12-04
Pukkeltjes met jeuk op borst en voorhoofd. Heel erg klein, bijna niet te zien. In de nacht van 13 tot 14 december de jeuk op voorhoofd al
gevoeld.
2 keer gedroomd dat mijn tanden eraf vielen. Gezonde tanden zonder gaatjes maar wel dun. Alsof ik schelpen in mijn mond had. In de
tweede droom was er iets over het uiterlijk. Ik had geen tanden en dacht “ nu zie ik er niet uit” wat erg!!
16-12-04
Wakker geworden met keelpijn, stekend links, voelt dik van binnen.
Warm drinken is verschrikkelijk, het steekt enorm. Eten gaat wel.
Woede onderdrukken als ik me niet gezien of gehoord voel. Zin om te schreeuwen voor aandacht en om dingen tegen de muur te smijten.
Verdriet gevoeld in mijn borst, zo voel ik het altijd.
17-12-04
Vieze gal smaak in de mond weer
Kriebelhoest, had ik al sinds september of zo. Tijdje niet gevoeld, nu terug.

C1 trituatie op 9 december 2004
Hoofdpijn direct na begin.
Voel mij heel open en blij. Raak in een intensief gesprek met Gert en Alize. Heb het gevoel precies te begrijpen hoe alles in elkaar zit. Doet
mij erg denken aan mijn puberteit. Ik weet wel hoe het zit.
De eerste 2 weken elke dag misselijk, de hele dag door. Daarna regelmatig als ik wakker wordt.
Slaap erg onrustig. Droom over alles en nog wat, heel banale dromen ( b.v. over huishouden, boodschappen doen). Wordt elke !!!! nacht
wakker. Minimaal 1 keer meestal 2 of 3 keer.
Ben ’s morgens doodmoe.
Zweet ’s nachts regelmatig (doe ik normaal nooit)
Heb ijskoude voeten en handen.
Enkele keren een heel erg opgeblazen buik.
Voel mij als een Jojo. Het ene moment blij het volgende moment erg droevig, verdrietig, zonder aanleiding. Wil wel dood.
Maak via de telefoon ruzie met mijn moeder. Wordt enorm boos op haar, schreeuw. Ze is niet redelijk, erg onrechtvaardig. Ze begrijpt het
echt niet!
Ook dat doet mij denken aan mijn puberteitsjaren!
Heb veel en stevige aanvaringen met mijn twee puberzonen.
Koop voor het eerst in mijn leven een lichtblauw kledingstuk.
Ben mij erg bewust van oude mensen. Zie ze overal. Ik denk, dat ze erg eenzaam zijn. Ben bang om oud te worden.
Ik wilde niemand tot last zijn, moet dat alleen oplossen, maar uiteindelijk bel ik met Jacqueline en gooi het er allemaal uit. Ik kan het niet
meer alleen aan, het wordt mij teveel. Dat luchtte al op. De dag daarna gaat het ook nog. Slaap daarna voor het eerst sinds begin december
twee nachten door!!
Val weer terug en tel de dagen, en op het laatst zelfs uren totdat het eindelijk lesdag is en ik hopelijk wordt bevrijd.

Prover 17
na de trituratie een enorme woede uitbarsting gehad 9-12-2004 19.30
een explosie.
VRESELIJK
mijn familie is zich rot geschrokken
mijn zoon riep dit ben je niet!
vraag me af of ik door wil gaan?
Ruik de hele avond zeeplucht.
Als de stof in mijn vijzel komt verbaasd het mij hoe mooi de kleur blauw is.
Ik ruik eraan om te controleren of de zeeplucht van de stof komt. Dat is niet zo.
Het voelt heel spannend. Een soort opwinding maakt zich van mij meester. We gaan beginnen!
Dan luidt Sjaq de bel en direct komt het gevoel alsof de bel luidt voor de sacristie.
Er komt een soort heilig gevoel over me een gewijd gevoel. Dit ervaar ik als spiritueel en komt openheid vanaf boven, in mij. (begint bij
kruin chakra) (gebeurd soms als ik mediteer, maar niet zo intens zo opeens zo allesomvattend)
Alize begint te praten en het irriteert me. Houd je mond denk ik. Dan sluit ik me ervoor af.
Zie in mijn kom mooie patronen lagen, opgebouwd van beneden naar boven als richels.
De stof blijft hangen.
Dan opent zich mijn linker neusgat. Als of er zuivere zuurstof doorheen komt. Later mijn re ook maar niet zo open als de li.
Ik adem diep en rustig en er komt een diepe rust over me. Mijn borstkas opent zich en vult zicht met zuurstof, lucht.
S 1 Ik zie mooie, blauwgrijze substantie met glans.
W2 Ruik opnieuw de zeeplucht. Het valt me op dat Evelien een roze rood glittertje op d´r wang heeft. Mijn ogen staan wijdt open, neem heel
helder waar. Ik ben me bewust van de omgeving en als ik rondkijk zie ik diep triest, treurig en lijden op een aantal gezichten. Wat mij niet
raakt, ik neem alleen waar.
Ik krijg opeens jeuk ik de kleine ruimte tussen neus en bovenlip. Dan overvalt me ineens een slaperigheid.
S2 Krijg de stof niet los. De inhoud in de kom lijkt veeel kleiner. Dan in een impuls wil ik een hapje nemen, doe het niet. Mijn haren irriteren
en ik denk dat ik snel naar de kapper moet om het af te knippen. Ik krijg dorst en ga naar de keuken. Het water in mijn kopje is vrij warm,
maar als ik mijn vinger in steek is het lauw tot koud.
Ik voel me heel goed, prettig.
Opvallend. Bij het vertellen van mijn verhaal was ik alleen daar mee bezig. Dit is bijzonder meestal ben ik me bewust dat iedereen kijkt ook
dat de camera draait. Na het vertellen was ik me wel bewust dat iedereen keek en voelde ik me heel verlegen.

Volgende dag
In de avond na sporten om 19.30 thuis. Spoedje aan telefoon!
Zoon riep van boven. Maak je het eten klaar. Papa komt zo thuis.
Ik vroeg of hij wilde helpen maar hij liep weer naar zijn kamer. Man kwam thuis. Wat eten we?
Ik explodeerde, extreem!!!!
Ik ging tekeer als een viswijf. Ik kan boos zijn maar zo, nog nooit! Zo explosief! Zo onredelijk. Tijdens schreeuwen herkende ik mijn eigen
stem niet en ik dacht: stop stop. Maar kon niet stoppen.
Later na mijn excuus zei mijn zoon: mam dit ben je niet.
Man zei: je bent je nog nooit zo boos geweest zo hysterisch.
Ik ben erg geschrokken. Was daarna zo mak als een lammetje. Erg in mezelf gekeerd
Wel bewust dat deze heftige reactie van de testing komt.
14-12
Voel me goed en relaxed ondanks veel activiteiten in het weekend. Ik voel me open en toegankelijk.
Patiënten komen niet opdagen vanaf donderdag zonder afbellen . Iedere dag eentje.

Bewust dat ik de C1 niet af wil maken ivm explosie gevaar.
7-1
conflict met mijn dochter.
Nee, gezegd wat een enorme ruzie veroorzaakte.
Daarna intens verdrietig en uren gehuild. Het verdriet van de afgelopen jaren kwam eruit, (Ik huil zelden)
Afmaken C1 27-1-2005
Tijdens de verwrijving komen beelden naar boven over situaties waar ik in het verleden boos over ben geweest. Hebben allemaal te maken
met het overschrijden van mijn grenzen. De woede borrelt in me op vanuit mijn lenden.
Heftig maar ik ben me bewust van de kern van de woede. Ik ben niet duidelijk, ik laat het gebeuren.
Gevoel van dorst.
Ga water drinken 2 glazen vol. Mijn geur is versterkt.

komt steeds naar boven.
Thuis heb ik hevige dorst en reageer ik ondeugend, plagen.
Als ik in bed lig blijft er een liedje in mijn hoofd hangen, de tekst die zich herhaalt in mijn hoofd is : “let it be love”.
Ik slaap lekker, voel me “wollig”, warm
De volgende dag 27 januari op weg naar mijn werk zie ik diverse auto’s om mij heen, die allemaal een cijfer 8 (?) in hun kenteken hebben.
Zelf hebben wij ook een auto met het cijfer 8 in het kenteken.
Op het werk is het ontzettend druk, er gaat van alles mis, maar ik voel me er totaal niet verbonden mee. De dagen erna heb ik moeite met
concentreren, voel me afwezig, duf, duurt ongeveer een week.

Neutraal en lekker
Ik denk ik ga zo stoppen met tritureren
Ik voel dat ik ‘privilege” heb
Ik heb met Hahnemann geknuffeld in de lucht – het voelde warm –lachen daardoor.
Hier ga ik mijn levenstaak van maken. Homeopathie- provings- trituraties.
Het voelen geeft je vrijheid.

Blij gevoel
Zorgen over tijd – voel dat in de maag, alsof ie krimpt
Gevoel dat de tijd langzaam gaat – tegenstrijdig net gestresst alsof tijd te kort
Maak plannen in mijn hoofd mbt proving & trituratie van dit middel
Irritant gevoel over de tijd – tijd moet weg

Dood – ben ik er bang voor? Weet ik niet
Neutraal gevoel over de dood
Kramp in rechter arm van het tritureren, ik ga verder met linker arm
Jeukend bultje in rechter hand, ziet er uit als een Flea bite. Misschien van insect. In ieder geval bewust ervan geworden tijdens de trituratie.
IJskoud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
26 januari 2005 avond na de les
Ik ga naar huis. Ik ben angstig, alsof er iets gaat gebeuren. Iemand gaat dood. Ik geef heel veel om die persoon. Dit had ik al 4/5 dagen.
Gedroomd: Alize heeft een van mijn patiënten overgenomen van Marije. Heeft een andere middel voorgeschreven. Vertelt mij het verhaal
over dit andere middel. Waarvan het wordt gemaakt en hoe. Het gaat om een beest, lijkt op een Armadillo. Een stuk van het beest wordt
gekrust en gepotentieerd. Alize beweert dat dit middel beter is voor het kind. Zij vertelt het serieus maar mensen om haar heen lachen, alsof
ze weten dat wat zij vertelt niet klopt.
Ik ben boos en gefrustreerd, een soort onmacht en ongeloof. Hoe kan dit nou. Ik kan er niet bij met mijn hoofd. Ik denk: Alize: ik heb diep
respect voor jou. Ik vraag je altijd om dingen. Ik overleg graag maar dit kan niet. Dit kind is mijn patiënt en ik had graag overleg met jou
gehad.
Anxiety tijd, een soort angst. Ik haal het niet. Gevoel even snel dit afmaken want ik moet nog dat en dat doen en ik heb te weinig tijd.
27-januari-2005
Ochtend: Koud en heel moe.
Avond:
Enorme woede uitbarsting omdat hij mij vraagt mijn post op te ruimen als ik binnen kom. Wij krijgen ruzie. Hij snapt er niets van, vertelt hij
achteraf.
Ik loop naar mijn kamer. Ik huil en huil.. Ik heb het ijskoud van binnen en buiten. Ik denk en voel : Ik doe zoveel uit de bodem van mijn hart
en jij ziet dat niet. Jij ziet alleen dat scherp ben in mijn woorden, jij ziet de rest niet.
Om geen verdere ruzie te maken loopt hij fluitend weg. Dit voelt voor mij als bevestiging dat hij mij waardeert. In een klap ben ik terug naar
een soort hysterisch nerveus breakdown. Ik kan niet stoppen met huilen, snikken als een gek. Ik voel dat ik mijn relaties kapot maak. Ik snap
niet hoe het kan. Ik ben zo veranderd. Ik doe zo mijn best. Maar hij doet en zegt hetzelfde als mijn huidige vriend. Ik ben wanhopig. Ik doe
iets fouts maar ik zie niet wat. Ik zie het niet, ik zie het niet, ik zie het niet.
Achteraf begrijp ik dat dit een soort schuldgevoel is. Ik denk dan aan de familie van mijn moeder. Het schuldgevoel van mijn opa die zijn
vrouw en 3 dochter in de steek heeft gelaten. De jongste was mijn moeder en was nog geen 3 jaar oud. Ondanks ik niet meer hysterisch ben.
Huil ik gemakkelijk. Mijn vriend het ik praten erover en maken het goed.
Ik snap niets van deze reactie. Ik ben in een klap teruggegaan naar het moment die mij aan de therapie heeft gezet. Jaren lang heb ik eraan
gewerkt en was weg, dealt with.
Volgende dag om niets huilen. Nog steeds het gevoel van Ik maak alles kapot wat mijn dierbaar is omdat ik een negatief deel van mijzelf niet
kan veranderen omdat ik niet zie wat er nou fout aan is!
Dan pijn in de borst, links, alsof ik een klap heb gehad. Blauw plekje. Tepel gezwollen aan een kant. De volgende dagen nog meer pijn. Voelt
als een ballon, gevuld met vocht. Rechter borst gaat ook pijn doen, maar links is erger. Ik hoor binnen 5 dagen (rond 2-2) ongesteld te
worden.
29/01/05
Angst is weg. Borsten nog pijnlijk. Ik voel me goed. Rustig. Best vrolijk en vrij.

C2 trituatie 26 januari 2005
Na binnenkomst zie ik het grote vel papier en de potten verf. Ik voel mij er meteen erg toe aangetrokken. Ik wil eigenlijk niet praten maar zo
gauw mogelijk beginnen aan de C2 om eindelijk verlost te worden. Nog voordat wij beginnen mag/moet ik verven. De kleuren staan vast:
blauw, geel en rood. Ik wil ze het liefst niet door elkaar op het papier brengen. Wil de verf heel dik opdragen. Jammer dat ik niet over meer
technieken beschik. Ben mij niet bewust wat ik doe, maar weet tegelijk dat het zo moet en niet anders. Voel mij daarna heel opgelucht en blij
alsof er iets van mij afgevallen is.
Tijdens de trituratie kijk ik naar de vijzel en heb de indruk dat de stof bijna oplost. Ik kijk naar mijn tekening, er moet meer blauw bij!. Ik ben
117
euforisch als ik aan verven denk. Opgewonden, wil de tekening verfijnen. Ben trots op mijn schilderij. Nu is het opgelost. Tijdens het verven
denk ik aan een vuurbal en aan een meteoriet.
Nu komt er schot in. Ik kan vliegen!!! Zou graag meer verfijning aan willen brengen in het schilderij.
Moet gapen, maar dat past niet bij mijn opgewonden zijn.
Roer haastig, snel.
Wil dat vasthouden. Zie anderen voor zich uit staren, dat wil ik niet. Wil niet remmen / geremd worden.
Ik ben in de tijd.
Alize en Jacqueline gaan door mijn tekening. Voel bijna lichamelijke pijn. Observeer nauwkeurig wat zij doen. Ze willen mij pesten. Ik
probeer rustig te blijven. Bepaal voor mijzelf een grens op het schilderij tot waar zij mogen komen. Hoop intensief dat zij niet over die grens
gaan. Ik weet niet wat ik dan ga doen. Als ik merk dat Alize er niet overheen komt wordt ik innerlijk rustiger. Neem wat meer afstand en
wordt benieuwd naar wat het wordt. Alize weet volgens mij niet, dat blauw en geel groen wordt anders zou zij dat nooit doen. Begin de
humor van wat er gebeurt in te zien. Kan het loslaten.
Tijdens de nabespreking houd ik mij eerst bewust stil. Wat er gebeurde heeft mij erg diep geraakt. Als ik uiteindelijk uitleg, dat zij bijna over
een grens gingen en Alize daarop zegt dat het haar daar helemaal niet om gaat, zij voelt geen grenzen, geen tijd, het is een universum, voel ik
mij erg gekwetst. Ik ervaar het alsof zij haar ervaring- gewaarwording boven de mijne stelt. De hare is beter. Mijn emotionele ervaring is
minder. Sowieso is mijn emotionele reactie niet goed. De interventies van enkele te hulp schietende aanwezigen voelen maar even goed. Ik
moet hier alleen doorheen. Ik herken dit. Het is mijn projectie. Ik breng de normen en waarden erin en de waardering van mijn emotionaliteit
is erg laag.
De volgende dag ontmoet ik kort Alize. Wij praten over wat er is gebeurd. Dat doet erg goed. Nu kan ik vanuit overzichtsniveau ernaar
kijken. Voel mij daarna rustig en blij.
Slaap nu weer normaal.

C2
Een hele reeks van gedachten, alles wat gezegd was, verteld was, hoe ik met mijn innerlijk kind moet verbinden, ben ik
onderdrukt?
-Het is lekker om alleen te zijn, bij mijzelf te zijn, met mijn gedachten te zijn. Ik vind het jammer dat de trituratie afgelopen is.
Het was een beetje als een droom – een stroom van gedachte die voorbij ging, gedachten die ik beleefd heb, ik voelde me
afgezonderd -van de groep, van mijzelf.
2-2-05
Ik weet niet hoe ik me voel, een beetje eenzaam, Ik doe dingen om tijd te vullen? Tijd vullers,? Dag vullers? Ik zou graag naar een
diepte willen gaan van totaal verveeld te zijn & hopelijk terugkomen. Iets slaapt in mij en ik kan het niet wakker maken dus ik blijf
proberen en diegene wat slaapt trekt tegelijk mij, vooral zwaar op mijn rug, het trekt mijn naar voren & beneden.

Ik ruik gelijk al een sterke lucht, kan het niet thuis brengen, benzine?
118
Steken in mijn rechterzij, gebied lever
Hoofdpijn
Voel me weemoedig
Vervlogen tijden, zit in een ouderwets straatbeeld, zwartwit, mensen in ouderwetse kledij, lijkt op een oude ansichtkaart. Er is iets wat me
benauwd.
Gevoel alsof er iets in mijn keel zit
Daarna is er stilte, sereniteit.
Slaperig
(sonar) trillingen in mijn lichaam
Verdriet, oud zeer: oorlog, joden, zie rijen magere, trieste mensen staan die afgevoerd worden naar de concentratiekampen, voel stekende
pijn in mijn hart
Moet diep zuchten
Steken linkeroor
Brandend gevoel bovenlip
Opgezette buik
Hoesten
AFSLUITING (wil me het liefst omdraaien, met mijn rug naar de groep toe gaan zitten, maar denk: dat kan ik niet maken en doe het niet)
Gedachten aan vroeger komen naar boven: mijn oma’s en opa en aan wat zij gevoeld moeten hebben in de oorlog
Verdriet van familie
Moe, zwaar gevoel
Marije begint erg te hoesten en ik denk: zie je wel: gaskamer!
VERDRIET IS TE ERG, TE ZWAAR
Later tijdens bespreken in de groep heb ik het enorm koud en last van hartkloppingen.

Ik zou zo eeuwen kunnen zitten!
Tijd bestaat niet
Er is heel veel ruimte om me heen
Heel moe- slaperig
Medelijden maar zonder gericht object – naar wat of wie gericht niet bekend.
Ik zit op de top van de berg waar de engelen niet durven
Alles daarboven is compleet en geheel
2e deel lactose
Oranje om me heen
Ik ruik een zoetig/fruitig geur. (Als de thuja) Ik ruik bomen
Toestand van “purity” = zuiverheid, Nederlands woord komt later in me op
Verbergen – ik ga zitten boven op een plek waar niemand mij kan zien toch weet ik dat alles er is.
Neutrale meditatieve toestand
Heel moe – slaperig
Denk aan mijn oma, tante, oom en nog een oom. Allemaal overleden, ik heb ze ook gekend

Ik ben de stier en ook de stiervechter en tegelijkertijd neem ik het van boven waar.
Steken in linker borst, van tepel recht naar binnen dwars door de borst heen
Ik zie grote, gigantische bomen, ik denk aan de dood, moeder aarde. Dit volgt na de beuk.
Opeens helder, helemaal terug, gevoel van herboren zijn. Honger gevoel, lege maag.
Ik wil graag naar de C4!
Ik weet even niet zo goed wat ik op aarde doe.
Rustig doorgaan, misschien komt het nog (weten wat ik hier doe)
Neutraal gevoel.
Nacht van 2-2-05
Dezelfde nacht gedroomd dat ik zo boos was op iemand dat ik niet kon stoppen met schreeuwen tot dat ik overging in slaan. Ik heb die
persoon met geweld een kamer ingeduwd en ik ging erop los. De reden: zij was ver over mijn grenzen heen gegaan. Een vrouwelijke
familielid die verliefd is op mijn vriend en daar op af ging. Mijn gedachten: “ jij komt niet aan het meest heilig in mijn leven” Daarna enorm
verdriet en huilen omdat mijn vriend boos was over mijn actie. Hij zegt in de droom: You have made a scene at a family party and that is not
the place to do it! You have no respect for anybody!!
Donderdag 3-2-05
Volgende ochtend droge hoest met een ruw gevoel in mijn sternum. Herken dit gevoel van de tijd dat ik bronchitis heb gehad op mijn 18e. Ik
hoest steeds een keer. Doe ik al een tijdje zo, als ik moet hoesten, bedoel ik.
Ongelofelijke trek in yoghurt. Na vorige trituraties ook maar was me niet van bewust dat het misschien hierdoor kwam. Ik ben gewend
periodes door te maken waarin ik steeds trek heb in iets concreets.
Ik ben geschrokken van het feit dat ik me bewust ben dat ik liever aan de andere kant wil zitten. Ik voel me niet depressief en in feite wens ik
ook niet dood te gaan maar ik voelde me daar zo goed. Als ik in contact ben met de andere kant doe ik het vanuit de aarde, vanuit mijn
wezen, met als het ware een klein lijntje dat omhoog gaat. Dit doe ik meestal met Reiki-oefeningen of behandelingen. Tijdens de trituratie
119
zat ik niet beneden maar boven. Het lijntje was geen lijntje, het was alles, ik was alles. Het geeft mij een raar gevoel om hier te zijn en een
aardse bestaan te lijden. Ik ben echter als ik daar boven op de berg zit, want dan ben ik wat ik ben in mijn kern.
Ik heb 4 cases uit te werken en ik kom er niet aan toe om er aan te beginnen. Ik heb geen kracht vrijmaken hiervoor. De kracht moet binnen
mijzelf blijven. Morgen college, weet niet of ik het kan opbrengen om daarheen te gaan. Ik voel me neutraal. Het enige wat ik wil is mijn
kracht voelen en ervaren wat ik werkelijk ben, en dat is, wat ik boven op die berg was.
Ik weet niet zo goed wat ik hier mee aan moet. Mijn neiging is nu, rustig wachten en de aandacht op mijzelf richten. Ik voel trouwens ook
enorme, overweldigende liefde naar de mensheid, in het bijzonder mijn vriend (niets nieuws). Gevoel van eenheid.

3ex tritt.
Na de C2 en
C3 trit.
1e x:
-denk aan het boek Psalmen uit de Bijbel
-prik oog, begint rechteroog bovenlid. Doorgaans ooghoek bij de
neus links gaande naar rechts.
-tijd gaat zo langzaam
-stof voelt lekker en maakt lekker geluid, als rustig door goede
sneeuw zoeven. Fijn, gelukkig gevoel in bovendeel romp.
--stof voegt zich makkelijk naar mijn hand, lijkt bij schrapen meer te
worden. Oogst makkelijk, i.t.t. het schrapen ban lac.h.
2e x:
-fijn geluid, maakt me gelukkig
-triest om dood kindje van 6 maanden in baarmoeder
-ruik de geur van droogkokende koffie (was niet echt zo)
-tijd gaat zo langzaam
-neusgat links helemaal vrij, alsof koude vrieslucht tot diep in je
longen kan gaan. Fris koud gevoel als in ijle lucht hoog in de bergen,
wat me ook altijd blij maakt.
-natuurrijken werken nu in deze tijd mee om de aarde voor te
bereiden op Kerstmis.
2ex schrapen:
-Gulle stof.
- gevoel van Rust tussen borstbeen en bekken.
-Veel meer op buik gaan slapen met knie, aan dezelfde zijde als
waarheen het hoofd gekeerd is, opgetrokken.
Wil dit eigenlijk niet om knieen niet zo te belasten, maar is wel de
prettigste houding als ik al iets van bewustzijn heb ’s morgens bij het
wakker worden (soms al om 4 uur)
dromen zijn helder, geen emotievolle situties, kan ze meer helder
maar gedeeltelijk vasthouden.
- dr: 23-01-05: dochter bleek ineens 3 kinderen te hebben terwijl ik
alleen de 1e goed ken
-schoonvader van 91 jaar stapte op een balustrade om iets te pakken
en viel, kwam rechtstandig op zijn voeten terecht 1 verdieping lager
en liep gewoon weer weg.
Dat hij op de balustrade stapte gaf me wat zorg en ik was verbaasd
dat hij geen letsel had. Geen emoties, alleen constateren.
Bij beide dromen was ik logisch aan het waarnemen.

C3 trituatie, 2 februari 2005
Vanaf ’s ochtends op mijn linker oor een vreemd vegend geluid op het ritme van mijn hartslag. Ik heb al een constant ruisen in mijn oren
maar wordt hier toch niet paniekerig van. Het is heel rustig.
Thuis heb ik even getwijfeld over mijn kleding. Heb besloten zonder BH, met grote trui, stretchbroek en gemakkelijke schoenen te gaan. Dat
voelt heerlijk. Het maakt mij niet echt uit wat anderen vinden. Bij binnenkomst wordt ik blij als ik het schilderij van laatste keer zie. Ik vind
het nog steeds heel mooi.
Aan het begin van de trituatie lichte hoofdpijn rechts.
Vijzel en stamper voelen koud.
Voor het eerst komen Duitse woorden, waarvan ik niet naar de vertaling zoek.
Roerend in de vijzel wijkt de substantie van het midden: Mittelpunktfliehend.
Ik ruik Kampfer (ik zou niet weten hoe dat ruikt en hoe het in het Nederlands heet).
S1 Wil alles energiek naar het midden toe schrapen.
Roer met gesloten ogen. Dat voelt goed.
S2 Ben hel rustig. Prettig.
Ben moe, gaap vaak.
Kijk om mij heen, zie anderen zwaar kijken en denk: wij zijn niet blij.
Ruik 4711 (weer in het Duits, Eau de cologne, werd vroeger vooral door oudere dames gebruikt).
S3 Ik wil niet schrapen!
Er gebeurt niets.
Denk in het Duits: Bin nicht bei der Sache. (Ben er niet bij).
Iets staat mij tegen. Ik wil niet met de stroom mee! Sta op en haal thee.
Ik wil mij niet verzetten – maar meedoen is moeilijk.
Heb pijn in mijn hart.
Denk na over het woord verzetten – verzet – oorlog. (Ik lees op dit moment een boek waar over een aantal Concentratiekampen wordt
geschreven).
Kijk naar het schilderij en zou iets soortgelijks willen schilderen. In de linker hoek beneden. Het zou anders worden, rustiger, wel met
dezelfde kleuren. Maar de energie om het daadwerkelijk te doen ontbreekt.
Discipline.
Nog een keer roeren! (Nee toch!)
Der Gang nach Kanossa!
Ik wil dit niet – is dit weer verzet?
Ik ben hier waarschijnlijk niet goed in – SORRY!
Er zit iets creatiefs in. Ik wil bij het schrapen van de substantie een windroos maken.
Wil de C4 tritureren!
Wacht met vertellen. Ik heb niet direct de behoefte het kwijt te moeten.
Geluid in mijn linker oor is er nog steeds.
IJskoude voeten en onderbenen.
3 februari 2005
Heb goed geslapen. Opgeblazen buik. Buikkrampen. Voel mij heel rustig.
Zoek in het woordenboek naar de precieze betekenis van : Gang nach Kanossa.
In het Duits: jemandem schwer fallende, aber von der Situation geforderte tiefe Selbsterniedrigung.
De eerste uitleg in de Van Dale bevalt mij niet, pas in de aanhang vind ik een uitleg die aansluit bij mijn gevoel.
Naar Canossa gaan: zich op deemoedige wijze onderwerpen, en boete doen.
‘s middags erg moe. Val tijdens lezen in slaap. Het is goed zo.
Krijg een enorm (vanaf het middenrif) opgezette buik, heel hard. Het voelt vreselijk. Winderig. Laat een boer (dat doe ik echt nooit).
Ik denk erover morgen niet naar de opstelling te gaan. Ik wil liever de kamer schilderen.
4 februari 2005
Ben niet naar de opstelling. Voel mij een beetje schuldig maar begin blij aan het schilderen van de woonkamer. Dit was een goede beslissing.
Heb in de hele periode een koude rechter arm. Mijn rechter schouder doet zeer. De ene dag is het erger dan de andere.
Mijn stemming is wisselvallig. Soms heel eenzaam en onbegrepen, dan heb ik weer het gevoel het allemaal te weten. Voel mij net als in mijn
puberteit. Heb de indruk mijn puberzonen beter te begrijpen. Sta er dichter bij. Wat is het toch een moeilijke fase. Aan de ene kant alles
weten aan de andere kant zo onzeker. Klein en groot willen zijn, maar wat ben ik nu?
Prover 8
Bij aanvang van de trituratie voelde ik erg me moe, verdrietig en boos.
Voor mij voelde alles tegengesteld bij het tritureren.
Verdraagzaamheid/onverdraagzaamheid
Dan toch maar het weer laten gebeuren
Kippenvel; echt koude rillingen
Geremdheid/ongeremdheid
Voel me draaierig en slaperig
linksom draaien/rechtsom draaien
dan alles weer terugdraaien; dan is het goed

Prover 15
Dag Allemaal,
Na deze trituratie een immens verdriet en eenzaamheid, en onbegrip dat wij (ik) als mens in staat is om tot planmatige wreedheid in staat te
zijn.
Door het weglaten van gevoelservaringen is dit mogelijk=rationele verklaring
Maar wat mbv de trituratie terugkomt is het kinderlijke element,
en dat is het niet begrijpen ervan. het niet begrijpen met het gevoel, de onmogelijkheid op gevoels nivo jezelf te begrijpen en te ervaren, en
de behoefte te oefenen en fantaseren tot je dat misschien wel kan begrijpen, .
De kinderlijke opluchting dat het lichaam een stof produceert die je beschermd voor het lijden wat de mens aan zichzelf kan ervaren en
zichzelf aan kan doen. Het ondraaglijke te verhelpen met een drug, die je lichaam zelf produceert. Maar toch te voelen dat de oplossing niet
is, maar de illusie. De weerstand om in de illusie te gaan..die is heel sterk.
niet naar het grotere geheel te vertrekken, de illusie op te geven, dat is de pijn.
Als we niet in de emotie / pijn teveel hoeven te gaan, wordt de weg opengebroken naar een groter geheel. maar is dat een escape,
onderdrukking, en laten we de pijn, en de aangedane pijn dan maar niet gemakshalve achter!????
Dat is de pijn die ik nu beleef.
Prover 16 (zit erbij, tritureert niet)
Hele angstige voorgevoelens als ik opsta, dit blijft de hele dag hangen.
Last van m'n buik hierdoor
Ik zie een begrafenisauto
Afscheid, dood, transformatie
Heb enorme hartkloppingen
Alize geeft haar mortier en dit voelt als delen een fijn gevoel, ik schraap.
Gevoel te willen uitbreken.
Arm links boven doet pijn
Stroomt in linkerbeen en tintelt
Bovenbenen voelen aan de binnenkant schraal
Boven op hoofd aan binnenkant tintelingen
Ik voel me intens moe
Ik zie een enorme ijsberg en die gaat smelten, alsof het zachter wordt.
Een onherbergzaam gebied zo een eenzaam gebeuren.
Schouders en bovenarmen zo zwaar en pijnlijk.
Nek pijnlijk
Achter rechter oog pijn
Ik zie een skelet, het doet van achter naar voren pijn aan de binnenkant.
Ik voel medelijden en liefde.
Ik hoor donderdag d.d. 03-02-2005 dat heel slecht gaat met een lieve vriend, hij heeft die dag een operatie en zal het waarschijnlijk niet
redden.
Het lijden voor hem is afschuwelijk.
Dit grijpt me zo aan.
De week ervoor heb ik een afscheidsgesprek met hem gehad.
Het voelt als veel.
Ik ga in meditatie en kom als nog met hem in een geestelijk contact,
daarna wordt het rustiger in mijn gevoel.
Ik heb het besef dat dit weer een afscheid betekent.

INDIVIDUELE SYMPTOMEN C4 TRITURATIE
Prover 1
C4 trituratie d.d. 16 maart 2005
Voel al snel pijn, druk op mijn borst, rechterkant
Koud
Pijn voorhoofd
Wil heel erg in mezelf zitten, laat me met rust!
Loslaten, wil hier niet op aarde zijn, wil naar andere dimensies
Ik wil doorwrijven, nu al schrapen
Ik wil me niet bewijzen, ben goed zoals ik ben, al die verschrikkelijke Ego’s waarvoor ik mij moet bewijzen
Wil weg, weg van deze aardbol, heb het wel gezien hier!
Voelt als bevrijding.
Misselijk, zuchten, geeuwen.
Gert is hard aan het schrapen en dat irriteert enorm: hou op: je verstoort mijn gevoel!
Schrapen duurt me te lang, wrijven duurt te kort
Verlang naar muziek om lekker bij weg te zweven
Zit in een draaikolk, heel veel kleuren, word daarin meegezogen
Daarna is er LEEGTE
Jullie mogen het allemaal hebben, het hele Ego-bestaan, ik vind het prima, ik ga weg!!
Voel me verdrietig, maar ook trots
Pijn in rechteroor
Ruik een licht frisse geur, doet me denken aan de lente.
Dan weer: Ik wil weg!! Voel het in het diepst van mijn ziel: ik wil hier niet zijn!
Daarna gevoel alsof ik echt “weg” ben: ik word steeds lichter, dunner, alsof ik oplos
Dan kom ik terug: waar ben ik? En meteen voel ik: Dit is mijn lot….
Voelt heel zwaar….
Daarna ben ik uit mijn concentratie en heb ik heel veel trek in zoet.
Tijdens de bespreking heb ik wel het gevoel dat ik er “ben”, maar moet daar erg mijn best voor doen, steeds de neiging om weg te willen
“glippen”.
Eenmaal thuis duik ik de koelkast in en werk een Magnum naar binnen, heb behoefte aan zoet en kou om zo te proberen weer meer “hier” te
komen. Daarna word ik overmand door een immens verdriet en moet heel hard huilen. Ik slaap goed, maar word wakker met hoofdpijn. De
volgende dag krijg ik ’s avonds last van kriebelhoest wat zich ’s nachts doorzet met pijn in spieren en koorts, kortom: ik heb de griep. Blijf
thuis (18/3), moet veel hoesten, overal pijntjes in hele lijf en voel me heel erg sloom, alles wat ik doe, doe ik in slow motion.

Tegenpool  te weinig Ego daardoor onbegrepen = verdriet
Oplossing van alle perspectieven leren zien. Ego wanneer nodig?

Grenzen bestaan niet maar dat kan je pas begrijpen als je ook zonder ego kan.
Als ik hierover denk, raak ik verward. SE het gaat even boven mijn pet.
Stem in mijn hoofd – schrijf gewoon op – je bent een boodschapper en nu is je denken- je ego niet nodig. Als je thuis bent, ga eens goed
nadenken wat ego is, inhoud, nu niet.
Ik ben vrienden met de stof.

Mijn leven is nu voorgoed veranderd
OBS: mensen heel geconcentreerd. Ik zie een dilemma in de gezichten. Slaap of pijn?
SE dat ik te snel gaat (3 keer)

1 nacht
-droom: zag kerktoren van het dorp waar mijn ouders wonen ineens in elkaar zakken.
Ouders wonen dicht bij die kerk, alles was verwoest.
Zag het huis van mijn ouders vanuit de plaats aan de andere kant van de straat tegenover
de buren. Was verder niets aan de hand, alleen alles kapot. Dit had geen verdere
consequenties.
- ik was met een trituratie groep in een voor mij gewijde ruimte, ik had een zwart boek in
mijn hand. Iedereen sprak over zijn ‘spirituele ervaringen’, alsmaar, en ieder had wel wat,
de een al mooier dan de ander.
Ik voelde dat de ruimte wat ontwijd werd of zo, waarop een iemand uit de groep
laatdunkend zei: jij verkoopt toch ook alleen maar loten!
Het boek bleek het homeopathische woordenboek te zijn.
- was me bij het wakker worden in eens bewust dat iemand mij incorrect benaderd had,
waarvoor ik een verklaring gegeven had vanuit mijzelf, terwijl me nu duidelijk was, dat
die ander zich had moeten verontschuldigen voor zijn gedrag.

Blij gevoel.
Alize en Jacqueline kletsen veel, ik zeg er wat van en schrik daarvan: hoe haal ik het in mijn hoofd. Voel schaamte – sorry!
Substantie voelt lekker rond in de vijzel, soepel.
Moet aan Irene denken, ik zou iets voor haar willen doen, het lichter willen maken.
Lisanne studeert af op het onderwerp Duitsland en moet de film: “Der Untergang” zien. Wat moet zij inhalen. Iets wat in de familie nog een
plek moet krijgen?
Vanuit onzekerheid belangrijk willen zijn. Dat hoeft nu niet meer. Ben nog onzeker wanneer ik dan wel iets moet zeggen.
Ben blij en dankbaar, dat ik tritueer, dat er geen PC’s op tafel staan, dat wij hier zitten en dit doen. Het voelt verbonden, ook al kan ik niet
iedereen helpen, omdat ik ook weet dat ieder zijn stuk heeft waar hij zelf doorheen moet.
Geert schraapt heel fanatiek, ik maak mij zorgen om hem: “komt het wel goed?”
Voel mij heel heel, wil eigenlijk in deze toestand blijven, hoef niet meer verder.
Es kann doch nur noch besser werden. Oud liedje komt in mij op: Das kann doch einen Seemann nicht erschüttern, keine Angst, keine Angst
Rosmarie!
Voel mij blij. Hauptsache das Ganze zerplatzt nicht wie eine große Seifenblase!
Moet aan het verhaal van Marije denken. Wat erg al die experimenten in de oorlog, dat mensen moeten ervaren dat zij tot iets in staat zijn
waarvan zij dachten dat zij het nooit zouden doen. Die Erkenntnis muß schrecklich sein. Er was geen overzichtsniveau. Ze zaten er te diep in.
“Der Untergang” zien – men kan dingen weten zonder ze meegemaakt te hebben. Als het al in je ziel zit.
Waarom komen wij soms niet aan ons weten? Zit ons Ego ons in de weg? Alles is er toch. Wat zijn wij mensen toch prachtig in ons streven
naar waarheid , het zijn te bereiken!
Zouden wij nog veel moeten wrijven? Geeft niet, wij komen er wel uit met z’n allen.
Volgens mij ziet iedereen alles aan mij, maar dat geeft niet, het is goed zo. Voel mij erboven staan. Dat maakt dat ik mij schaam. Ik hoef dus
niet meer te schrapen.
Ik ben moe, ik wil slapen.
Fanatieke Geert!
Heb het gevoel, dat ik een spel speel. Kan mijzelf geen houding geven. Zou het liefst willen slapen maar weet niet hoe en waar. Kijk naar mij
en schaam mij daarvoor. Durf niet echt ergens te….
Ben een stuk kwijt…….
Weet niet wat er allemaal in mij zit. Ben bang. Existentiële angst.
Nu weet ik het weer: het ging te snel!
Als wij nog doorgaan blijven wij in die toestand.
Is dat de angst voor wat erna komt?
Jacqueline waar zijn de zakjes?
Eintüten – und jetzt weiter!
Heb enorm behoefte aan zoet, gelukkig is er chocola bij Alize. Wanneer gaan wij de C5 doen?
De volgende ochtend kom ik nauwelijks mijn bed uit. Intens moe! Sleep mij de dag door, doe dingen en ben toch niet echt aangesloten.
Functioneer op de automatische piloot. Erg moe. Krijg heftige menstruatie, het lijkt alsof mijn borsten groter zijn. Ben zo moe. Eet een hele
blok chocola. Behoefte aan zoet. Veel geluid in mijn hoofd. De gedachten gieren door mijn hoofd.
In het weekeind voel ik mij erg onzeker over alles. Wandelen en praten helpt. Eet veel zoet. Kan moeilijk bij een onderwerp blijven.

Begin de trituratie met een lamme rechterarm.
Ga links draaien.
Mag ik zijn wie ik ben?
Tijd en plicht altijd aanwezig
Verlang naar tijdloosheid en vrijheid
Ruik sterke chloorlucht
Rechterneusgat verstopt.
Ik zit vrijwel in het donker en voel me geïsoleerd.

Het voel heel onrustig om mij heen.
Lijkt wel of iedereen in de lesruimte "op springen" staat
Alsof de bom gaat barsten
Poolster/schraapwand lijkt op ijspegels
ijsberen.
"geloof in jezelf overstijgen = vertrouwen hebben.
Ik droom kort na de trituratie over de oorlog. Mijn kinderen en ik
zitten in een soort zolderhuis. Er wordt op de deur gebonkt. Wij doen niet open.
Dan wordt het weer stil. Een van mijn zoons klimt op het dak om te kijken wat er aan de hand is. Hij wordt direct met een pistool bedreigd
door een soldaat die kennelijk al op het dak aanwezig was. Er wordt ons verteld dat wij over 2 dagen opgehaald worden. Ik neem
afscheid van onze zolder. Ik kijk door een van de ronde zolderramen; zie een hele lange brede goot die helemaal begroeid is met groene
planten zo ver ik maar kan kijken. Ik word met een loodzwaar gevoel wakker.
Prover 15
heb ik je verteld dat bij de laatste bijeenkomst ik weer over Hitler en de wreedheden begon.

de vraag kwam op. waarom heeft dit moeten gebeuren, waarom hebben we dit zo gedaan, waar is het goed voor. wat is de bedoeling ervan.
en dan wel vooral de geplande wrede organisatie van dit al, het wrede en koude.

Maar vooral haar hele uitstraling pakte me.
Veel herkenbare dingen.
De dagen erna heb ik veel hoofdpijn en buikpijn gehad. Vooral de hoofdpijn was heel erg. Verdween na 4 dagen maar blijft op de achtergrond
sluimeren.
Alles leek zwaar. Ik was erg gedeprimeerd. Erg labiel. Eigenlijk nog. Ook het beeld van de vrouw blijft bij me..

INDIVIDUELE ERVARINGEN NA INNAME LAPIS LAZULI C40/4
Prover 1
Ondanks dat ik vorige week het middel niet heb ingenomen, heb ook ik last van mijn onderrug.
Afgelopen vrijdagochtend "schoot" het er ineens in, het was pijnlijk, maar nog wel uit te houden. Totdat het afgelopen zondag het er
nogmaals in "schoot", en ditmaal 3x zo hard in mijn beleving, met als gevolg hevige pijn die uitstraalt naar mijn buik, opgezet en een gevoel
alsof de boel "op slot" zit.
Zitten is bijna onmogelijk, lopen en staan gaan wel maar met moeite, alleen als ik lig heb ik nergens last van. Heb inmiddels via mijn eigen
homeopaat een middel ingenomen, maar helaas tot nu toe nog niet zoveel resultaat.
Klachten met mijn onderrug heb ik vroeger ook wel gehad, echter niet zo heftig als deze keer en het is ook alweer een tijdje geleden.
Toeval??
Ook het gevoel van dat "ik niet meer ben, jezelf kwijt zijn" is herkenbaar, dit heb ik alleen niet deze keer, maar dit had ik al na de C4
trituratie.
Ben benieuwd naar jullie ervaringen/reactie.
Prover 3
11 mei 2005
Vanochtend allemaal plannen. Ik heb veel af te handelen. Beslis eerst een homeopathisch middel langs een patiënt brengen. Normaal
gesproken neemt dit 45 minuten in beslag.
Ik begin dat ik in de verkeerde tram stap, waardoor ik terecht kom in een buurt in Den Haag die ik meestal vermijd, als het kan, omdat die
buurt veel herinneringen naar boven brengt waar ik meestal geen zin in heb. Ik beslis langs de (verkeerde) boekenwinkel te gaan. Ik zeg
verkeerde omdat ik graag naar Verwijs in de stad wilde omdat ik daar een boekje over Differentiaal Diagnose moet gaan ophalen.
Ik loop op straat met een enorme boosheid: Waarom zit ik hier? Waarom moet ik dingen zo doen? Waarom moet het zo?
Eenmaal in de boekenwinkel, zoek ik een cadeau. Wat ik oorspronkelijk wilde is er niet meer dus ik kan dat niet kopen. Uiteindelijk kom ik
de boekenwinkel uit met een boek over xxxxxx (als kado) en een boek van Kubler Ross “Lessen voor levenden”. Ik koop dit boek met een
soort spanning in mijn buik. Ik vermijd al een hele tijd boeken over dit onderwerp omdat ik vind dat ik er niet aan toe ben.
Bij deze twee boeken krijg ik een boekje cadeau over Duitsland and then it hits me...!
De lapis natuurlijk!
Mijn relatie met dit middel is een van love-hate. Het doet me goed en het trekt me aan maar het maakt me ook bang voor de duistere kant
ervan. Ik voel me moedig of juist het tegenovergestelde. Ik besef dat ik dingen vermijd, uitstel, de dingen die ik niet leuk vind en dan blijven
ze terug komen. Op een gegeven moment denk ik: het is nu klaar! Ik ga de confrontatie aan! Tegelijkertijd voel ik de adrenaline in mijn lijf.
Ik voel me net een warrior even voor the battle.
Het valt me op dat ik vaak, als ik dingen schrijf over de Lapis veel woorden in het engels komen. Ik vergeet de Nederlandse woorden.
Lieve allemaal,
Ik heb veel opgeschreven ivm proving, dit komt later wel. Iets opmerkwaardigs voor mij is het afgelopen nacht gebeurd toen ik aan het
dromen was. Droom wist ik niet meer toen ik wakker werd. Het enige wat ik weet is dat ik in de droom Let it be (The Beatles) aan het zingen
was en zo ben ik ook wakker geworden, met dat nummer in mijn hoofd. Ik heb pas rustig kunnen worden nadat ik het nummer een aantal
keer heb beluisterd. Hierbij dus ook de tekst van Let it be, merkwaardige ervaring, vind ik dit. Het gaat om darkness/unity/answers/Mother
Mary.
Ik hoor graag wat jullie ervan vinden.
De keelklachten, met heesheid herkende ik heel goed van vroeger, dus voor mij was dat wel duidelijk. Dit keer heb ik echter ook oogklachten
gehad, een soort ontsteking < links. Dit ken ik niet zo maar goed het kan toeval zijn. Ik dacht aan de Lapis omdat ik sinds de proving
probleempjes heb gehad met mijn ogen. Ik kan de zonlicht niet meer uitstaan zonder zonnebril. Voorheen kon dat prima.
Nu gaat het wel beter. Ik heb mijn stem terug, ontsteking in larynx is weg, ook bloed en mucus.

De avond van de dag daarop volgend, bijna 2 dagen na inname van het middel vond de inname van C4/C30 Lapis
Lazuli plaats.
De lumbago met constrictie op buikwand in het bekkengebied, waardoor ik me in de loop van de dag afvraag of er
soms sprake was van een latente optrekkende cystitis, nam na c.a. 1 uur na inname van C4/C30 af om ook weg te

Ik ben bang en ga achter een klein gebouwtje met een zuilengang er in staan en denk dat ik zo niet gezien wordt,
want de schutter kon het eens in zijn hoofd halen nog meer mensen te beschieten.
Ik denk dat ik veilig ben en niet gezien wordt. Dan komt er een bekende langs, die tegen me zegt: ga je mee?
Ik vraag hem hoe hij weet dat ik daar sta en dan blijkt: ‘dat hij van een afstand me gewoon kon zien staan’. Ik had

Wil graag even mijn reactie op de inname van lapis lazuli op 11 mei jl. met jullie delen.
De nacht na de avond van de inname voelde het alsof mijn onderrug "uit elkaar ging".
Een branderig pijnlijk gevoel. Nu, bijna een week later zit er nog steeds een soort brok/
steen in mijn onderrug. Ik meen me te herinneren dat ik een jaar of 3 geleden een
vergelijkbaar gevoel heb gehad in mijn onderrug.
Verder heb ik veel hartkloppingen gehad. Die zijn nu veel minder. en koude uiteinden
(voeten en handen) Voorts veel "instralingen" bij mijn kruin.
Ik heb steeds een heel onwezenlijk gevoel alsof "ik" "ik" niet meer ben. To be or not
to be, zoiets.
Ik droomde een paar nachten na de inname dat ik met 3 andere vrouwen aan het
bevallen was. De contouren van het kindje waren helemaal voelbaar door de huid van
mijn buik. Dan ga ik rechtop zitten en zie het hoofdje tussen mijn benen. Het kindje
kijkt mij aan. Ik "weet" dat het een jongetje is. Daar eindigt de droom.
Ook herinner ik me een droom in de afgelopen week, waarbij ik eerst een schoen en
een rode laars draag. Ik ruil de schoen om voor de andere rode laars (met veters).
Ze zitten heerlijk en ik heb er een blij gevoel over.
Dat was het even voor nu.
hallo allemaal,
129
Het verhaal van Prover 3 raakte me recht in mijn hart. In de tekst van het liedje gaat het o.a. over "Moeder Maria".
In kleur zie ik haar mooie positieve donkerblauwe energie.
Vorige week maakte ik voor iemand een "bijenwas" tekening. (encoustic art), waarbij ik "boodschappen doorkrijg".
aan de hand van de beelden die verschijnen op de tekening. Intuïtief maak ik deze tekeningen. Het frappante nu is dat
op deze tekening een donkerblauwe boog verscheen met daarnaast de contouren van de "Mariafiguur".
Voor mij voelt het nu zo dat wij middels de trituratie van Lapis Lazuli in contact mogen komen met deze "hoge" en helende
entiteit. Zie ook de tekst van het liedje van de Beatles.
Prover 15
Weinig gemerkt na inname veel minder als na trituratie,
opnieuw erg koud geweest en boven en onderrug koud en stijf, bang dat ik last zou gaan krijgen, maar is niet echt gebeurt.
Het woord omarming kwam in een meeting met collega homeopaten steeds terug.
De onderrug pijnen hebben met onderdrukte boosheid en geen ruimte scheppen voor wat je werkelijk wilt "uiten" te maken.
En de diepere gevoelens die er zijn, die toch maar liever te willen onderdrukken, Of er geen ruimte voor maken of kunnen maken.
Ik zou zeggen spreek je uit..
Dat is wat er aan de hand is.
Ik ben benieuwd, of dat gaat werken
Prover 16
Pijn in onder rug en buik, met steken in de blaas,
vlijmscherp.
Heel koud gevoel in onderste deel van de rug.
Een aantal dagen ijs en ijskoud en dan een hele hete huid,
met koorts, de koorts kwam meestal tegen einde van de dag.
Ik kon ook niet warm worden, zelfs niet in mijn bed.
Heel veel hartkloppingen en overslaand hart met schokken door lichaam.
Hartkloppingen heb ik nu nog bij opwinding.
GROEPSERVARINGEN TIJDENS TRITURATIES
Supervisor – Alize Timmerman
C1 Trituratie – 8 December 2004
Observaties:
Obs: er worden sommige dingen met veel humor verteld.
Voor trituratie begint: rommel, mensen zoek, net na pauze normaal?
A: waar is J, G? Moeten ze niet meedoen? Doet ze altijd
C staat al te tekenen. Wil niet dat Alize aan haar tekening komt. Alize zegt dat: wil niet eens da t ik aan haar tekening kom.
M: waarom moet je altijd bij iemand zijn gevoel?
A tekent iets tussen mijntekening en die van C, gaat direct klagen. Zag ik al aankomen.
C : dit is niet de bedoeling. Wat ben je nou aan het doen!!!!
Kijkt zo van: jeetje.. wat erg, wat een zooi maak je ervan?
G kijkt naar Alize en lacht.
C: blijft naar Alize kijken met een soort afschuw.
Blijft er naar kijken. Gefixeerd. Staart.
De groep vindt Alize een puber omdat ze de tekening van C verpest.
Er wordt gelachen om wat Alize zegt: je moet de mensen in de concentratie laten
C: Wie doet dat dan?
A klaar met tekening “ verpesten” kijkt tevreden
C lacht en zegt zie je dat? Terwijl ze naar Gert kijkt.
A: kijkt rond, wij kunnen overal gaan schilderen.
V Lacht: ze heeft die van mij ook verpest... A kijkt boos.
V Kijkt naar de tekening en probeert een betekenis te vinden voor de groene strepen die A heeft getekend op haar vlinder. Eerst hoort het
niet, daarna denk ik het zou het bos kunnen zijn, of gras, of een bloem waar de vlinder beland maar Ik mis de kleuren van die bloem.
Door de web cam van Gert ziet de tekening er prachtig uit! Ontroerd daardoor.
J: zit de hele tijd te lachen over de Al-Co situatie en maakt sarcastische opmerkingen over.
G kijkt naar mij terwijl ik mijn spullen opruim en ik zeg Mind your own business, soort irritatie maar niet echt serieus.
Hij zegt: doe ik ook! En dan even samen slappen lach.
G zucht een aantal keren tijdens de trituratie.

Sobrio  niet dronken: dat je niet laat gaan door emoties.
Door nuchter zijn neem je afstand (Prover 7).
Prover 10
Sober – dat je niet meegenomen wordt in het gevoel of emotie.
Nuchterheid: is het niet vertrouwen? Een soort basis?
Emotionele basis is daarin redelijk stevig.
Prover 11
Tsunami: ik kon het doseren.
Tv aan - kijken invoelen en huilen – tv uit kon ik door
Eerste 3 weken ontzettend helder geweest
Gevoel basis geweest (Prover 5)
Laatste 2 weken ingestort.
Constant over boerenland en bouwvakkers bleven terugkomen.
Lopen in boeren land met voeten in grond zakken.
Nuchterheid – ik voelde me heel mannelijk – boeren man
Achter me een huis – basic gevoel
Dood – mensen hele wereld in kring, hand in hand Alleluja woord kwam naar boven
IJzer plaat omringt door gras pletten al die mensen, mensen kwamen er onder uit kruipen alsof er niets aan de hand was. Ok we gaan doodonder plaat vandaan en weer verder.
Leeuw- vorm van Ik voelde me meer dier als mens. Tijdens tritureren werd ik een leeuw.
Ik kon niet denken als een mens. Ik kon ervaren van vocht, de zon op je huid. Proberen er een mentaal verhaal van te maken, lukte niet. Heel
raar voor mij.
Grijze energie massa en niet meer met vorm. Ik keek anders. Kaarsen branden, allerlei energieën ging erdoor heen, geen vorm. Menselijk
zicht op dingen kwijt.
Wel een paar keer in de spiegel naar kijken. (om te checken of ze een leeuw was). (zie ook Prover 4)
Emoties kon ik anders doseren dan normaal. Mentale laag eronder die gedoseerd naar binnen kreeg. Intensiteit was niet minder, Niet
overspoeld worden dat gevoel
A: Een leeuw ziet een mens niet – zien alleen een grijze massa dat beweegt.
Prover 12
Helderheid in dingen die ik voel, reactie
Vreselijk kwaad, wel met aanleiding
Kramp in maag, ken ik niet van mijzelf
Stoom kwam er uit
Vaagheid. Ik vergeet heel snel, heel veel.
Ontzettend naar woorden zoeken. Heel vreselijk voor mij. Herken ik niet.
Dag van trituratie: heel angstig voor dat ik hier heen kwam.
Angst gevoeld in buik.
Niezen
Gevoel alles eruit kwam tijdens trituratie
1,5 week ziek geweest. Ook niet zoals normaal. Conclusie: komt niet van middel maar wel versneld door het middel.
132
Griepbeeld: Extreem koud, neusloop. 8 uur koud, 8 uur in bed, 1 uur opvlieger raam open..
Dingen in je hoofd hebben dat is goed – en dan binnen 3 seconden kwijt
Veel gedroomd: over huishoudelijke dingen, elke dag taken. (stofzuigen, afwassen)
Ochtend vergeten en dan Smiddads 3 uur stuk herinneren
Nu iets positiefs: Een soort nuchterheid
Tsunami: kon niet mee in vrolijkheid tijdens voorbereidingen kerst. Soort van ondertoontje niet helemaal vrolijk of gezellig. Beelden wilde ik
niet zien. Nu al gezien.
Heel boos met krampen in de maag door beelden telkens, raakte me. Geen zin dat even binnenkwam.
Prover 13
Dit na trituratie
Heel heftig op tsunami, anders heel nuchter
Heel boos, gevecht met verzekering. Boze brief geschreven, anders nooit.
Ongelijk, dingen waar ik niet mee eens was.
Niet nuchter, helemaal niet
Heel emotioneel door t
Tsunami – ik ken daar mensen – er naar gezocht via TV doorzoeken tot alle info had. Zo ben ik helemaal niet, nog nooit gedaan.
Heel zenuwachtig en teleurgesteld.
Tijdens trituratie
Stijve nek daarna rustig gevoel
Weken opgeblazen buik
Prover 14
Boosheid, slaan op tafel
Schreeuwen, gewoon grof
Oneerlijkheid aanleiding van boosheid Dat kan niet!!!!! zo oneerlijk!
Wat voor soort oneerlijkheid?
Conny: afspraak met moeder en familie, opeens moeder zei dingen die niet klopte. Oneerlijk wat ze deed. Ik ben er niet zacht mee omgegaan.
Geschreeuwd!
Prover 15
Allemaal beelden Auschwitz in sneeuw en kou. IJskoud heel groot plan geweest. Welke hersenen bedenken zulke dingen?
Prover 17
C1 buiten mijzelf geraakt van woede en agressie. Zwaar, Heftig. Daardoor C2 niet durven doen.
Kinkhoest waardoor beschadiging strotklep. Klep slaat om. Snachts stikken, flauwvallen. Sinds trituraties niet meer snachts. Denk dat het aan
het genezen is.
Gedacht nu moet ik stoppen, niet gestopt en dan hoesten.
Kinkhoest – Lac-H is een van de belangrijkste middelen voor Kinkhoest. Iemand uit praktijk Vaak longenphyseem erachter aan omdat
blaasjes opgetrokken worden.
C2 TRITURATIE 25 januari 2005
Observaties: Met deze proving heeft men moeite met de website, dat is gebleken
Supervisor vraagt of we door gaan. Ik (Prover 3) SE dat er echt geen animo voor is. Prover 12 en 3 zelf geen behoefte.
Prover 1
Gloeien, branden, oog
Explosief
Ondeugend, bleek ook uit de rest
Rustig, lekker
Prover 2

Gedachten rondfladderen
Stekende pijn boven linker oog, verloop erger, komt het gaan

Het leven is een cirkel, met begin en eind
Laatste stap niet gemaakt
Prover 4
Hitte en branden
Droge neus
Droge slijmvliezen in het algemeen
133
Voor de rest is het gewoon lekker
Pesten/verborgen agressie: zo ervaar ik het ook die acties over de tekeningen.
Stel kinderen die elkaar aan het pesten zijn.
Grenzen: boos omdat anderen je grenzen heen gaan.
Conflict die op 2 verschillende niveaus wordt
Niveau zit ver van elkaar af.
Komt langs elkaar heen.
Prover 7
Er moet iets exploderen
Meteoriet
Vuurbal
Gevoel dat we aan haar komen. Grenzen stellen.
Speelse ervan te zien, eigenlijk is het wel komisch en toen begon het luchtiger te worden.
En dan weer met dat groen, dacht ik uhhh!
Daar is mijn grens en dat is alles.
Voelde alsof ik iets los kon laten.
Ruzie over kleuren in tekening: Dat voel ik als een strijd, al in het begin. Wat doe je nou? Je moet iemand laten!
Prover 7 ik heb een lichtblauw jas gekocht; ik had dat nog nooit gedaan!
Prover 8
Verre planeet die explodeer
Kou nog steeds, ijsbergen
Wezenloos gevoel
Onbegrensd erbij ook
Kleur blauw ook. Lucht in wezen.
Prover 9
Alleen maar wolven zag lopen
Boeiend conflict. Prover 15 zegt geen territorium. En dan tegelijkertijd kom je wel in het territorium, ruimte, grens.
Jij zegt dat je daar niet in leeft.
Bij territorium hoort altijd een grens. Ik voel dat er geen grenzen zijn. (Supervisor en prover 15)
Prover 10
Heerlijke tijd gehad
Bezig met gesprekken uit begin avond
Lekker gevoel
Prover 11
Van de week 2 conflicten van hetzelfde soort
Verdrietig
Daarna letterlijk spugen dat wat ik binnen had gekregen die niet bij me past
Dit heeft te maken met oneerlijkheid.
Alize: dacht kinderen vinden altijd alles oneerlijk.
Wolven, leeuwen en slangen Iets gemeens met elkaar – dieren die enorm het instinct aanwakkeren in mensen.
Prover 12
Alleen voet vanaf enkel ijsblokken, voeten bloedsomloop voelt gaan.
Linker continu kouder naar rechts
Nu rechts kouder naar links
Natte stenen geur.
Genoten van de spel

Dieren: 2 kleuren blauw, kop van wolfachtig kanivoor
Prover 3 walvis
Prover 13
de zon getekend, moest oorspronkelijk rond, spontaan kwamen de stralen erbij
Ontzettende keelpijn – niet meer slikken (Alize tijdens C1)
Ontspannen
Warm lekker warm
Heel ontspannen
Anticipatie angst, gevoeld in maag voor de toekomst Ik weet niet hoe het moet in de toekomst en tot weet ik niet wat de toekomst brengt.
Duizelig. Licht in hoofd.
Prover 15
Uitgeput en moe
En als ik maar naar bed kon
Kon ik ajb gaan slapen
Ineens in hoofd ik wil van de tijd af
Universum een tijdloos bestaan is.
Verlangen tijd los te laten
134
(Prover 4 ook) overgaan anderen dimensie, tijdloos, licht, zon naar boven. Kleur donker blauw.
Warm hoofd maar voelde koud van buitenaf.
Grijs-blauw hoort hier niet bij. Donker blauw moet het.
Prover 15: wil de licht blauw
Prover 7: helemaal niet!
Alles blauw turquoise, licht blauw
Heel warm hoofd
Stekende pijn aan beide kanten
Mijn behoefte beeld uit te drukken
Beeld was universele donkere, blauwe hemelschepper
Bal kort klein en tijdelijk
Zag geen evenwicht met de rest en daarom geheel ervan gemaakt
Ik zou geen probleem hebben als iemand anders daar iets meedoet
Niet mijn territorium of zo.
Het universum is tijdloos en gaat in rondgaande golving.
Het is pijnlijk dat je iets doet dat bij anderen als kwaad of anders wordt opgevat.
Je doet iets en dat wordt zus of zo uitgelegd en klopt het niet.
Mensen komen met projecties en het klopt niet.
Pijn is omdat je niet veroordeeld wil worden omdat je iets in een andere dimensie zit.
Andere dimensie en daarom niet mogelijk om je grenzen te overschrijden. Dat zou mij niet beperken. (discussie over grenzen).
Voor mij is het allemaal niet af. Hele laatste maand bezig ben geweest met die kleuren.
Blauw, licht blauw of turquoise bezig.
Prover 7 ik heb een lichtblauw jas gekocht; ik had dat nog nooit gedaan!
Prover 16
Warm
Beetje blij
Opgelucht
Behoefte iedereen te bekijken wat ze doen
Of ze hetzelfde gevoel hebben
Energie, meer energie

Prover 6
Klopt ik haal eruit wat erin zit en het was ook zo veel...
zit steeds met zakje zit te wriemelen (enige) mooi middel maar ook veel zwaarte in zich.
Begint duurde zolang de trituratie. Duurt veel te lang.
Laatste melklactose gaat het opeens heel snel,d e tijd.
Heel zwaar, eerst voor mijn leven met beide handen zitten tritureren. Het is heavy.

(7 is wel Duits)
Ik wil niet schrappen (17, 3 en 15)
Opmerkelijk dat er niets gebeurde, was niet lamlendig
Ik ben er niet bij, ik ben niet aangesloten
Het staat me heel erg tegen, niet met stroom mee
Ik wil niet roeren, moeilijk
Ik wil me nu niet verzetten, ik moet dat nu niet doen
Meedoen moeilijk
Pijn in hart, verzetten = oorlog
Boek aan het lezen over concentratiekampen
Schilderij gelijk willen schilderen in die hoek maar geen energie ervoor. Rustig heel anders als de vorige keer.
Discipline. Nog een keer roeren, ik vond het zo erg!
Op z’n knieën
Ik wil niet meer. Is dit meer verzet.
136

Prover 9
Het enige wat ik graag wil zeggen
Ik zie van vorige keer dat jij een vissen kop gemaakt hebt en ik dacht ja de dimensies vloeien uit elkaar voort, het is onvermijdelijk. Kennis
van aarde in zicht. Het moest dus zo, de tekening.
Prover 10
Beeld van de zee, voelde een soort getrokken of gedrukt naar een donker plek binnen.
Misschien was het de zee. Diep, diep in iets.
Rustiger maar heel zwaar. Dat is wat ik herken wat van jullie hebben gezegd.
Moe, gapen.
Gevoel in donkere? Zwaar alsof ik vastgehouden werd maar niet angstig maar ook niet rustig of prettigs. Iets nieuws.
Enorme angst om te beginnen.
Prover 11
Heel veel
C1 -2 -3 door elkaar heen
Niet vervelend
Het is zo veel
Het stopt niet, het blijft doorgaan, dadelijk explodeert mijn hoofd.. dat allemaal moet gaan vertellen.
Prover 12
SE sereniteit

Zee zwart met rimpels.
Vorige keer maar blauwe lucht.
137
Ik nam Prover 7 waar, gezicht veranderd gezicht was opeens vrouw 35 jaar.
Prover 7 gaat helemaal in haar kracht staan. Als een vrouw uitzien. Zo zag ik het eigenlijk.
Marije begint trituratie. Omgekeerd werd en soort jong meisje van 13-14 jaar. Zag er heel anders uit dan nu, bijna ander persoon. Hoe zijn
geplaagd is. Hoe geplaagd ze is moet zijn geweest in die tijd. Vandaag andere kleding aangedaan dan anders om dit te laten zien.
Dat klopt: ik zat in de auto en ik ben terug gegaan. Ik kon niet gaan.
Geen BH, geen make up opgedaan, uitzonderlijk!
Vluchtige gedachten over egoïsme. Wat egoïsme echt is.
Toeeigenen van gevoelens en ineens.
Daarvoor beeld gehad. Aantal jaren geleden vrouw overleden in de praktijk. Tegenover mij vertelde hoe goed het met haar ging. Kwam op
consult voor haar kinderen. ¾ woorden opgeschreven. Weten welk middel 9 maanden is geweest, dat is mijn middel. Ging doorschrijven naar
andere homeopaten. Vervuld gevoel. In deze trituratie, mijn gevoel was Nanny kwam als volgende patiënt bij me binnen. Gewoon binnen
komen, Het verdriet wat je nu hebt moeten we bespreken. Kijk dat is nou wat mensen doen. Ik was boos op mijzelf in die tijd dat ik niet...
Geschokt geen verdriet toen de tijd. Veel verdriet voor haar kinderen en man.
Later begreep ik ook waarom ik dat niet gehad heb. Logisch moment voor haar. Aversie voor wij mensen die toestand van iemand anders.
Zelf een probleem, verdriet hebben over overledene vrouw, alleen verdriet van eigen probleem maar dan projecteren op dood van die vrouw.
Gevoelens die je weer gebruikt via de andere. Woorden door me heen: dit stabiliseert onze extreme gevoelens. Pijn in linker schouder.
Jonge jongens woedige zee tegen golven in bewegen. Dwarsliggende golven veroorzaken. Stout doen en bijna hard, weinig gevoelens zijn.
Ivm patiënt, verdriet was goedkoop geweest.
Stout of rebelse in verborgen ligt. Jonge jongens in de zee hebben kracht om dit zo te doen.
Zee zwart en donker en diep.
Vloer veel prachtige kleuren, stenen prachtige kleuren in zich dragen.
Meer energie.
Droge hoest.
Zuivert gevoelens die de ruimte innemen van anderen.
Ik hoor niet wat er gezegd wordt. Steken linker borst.
Gaperig en zo. (melksuiker)
Over ruzie omtrent tekening
Eind van de avond even gaan staan, aan de andere kant en toen begreep ik waar jullie het over hadden. Paar meter verandering van betekenen
zien vanuit andere dimensie.
Dit middel prikkel gegeven dat het zo is. Werkelijkheden heel snel kunnen veranderen. Mensen kunnen tegelijkertijd verschillende
waarheden zien en ervaren waardoor scheiding, ruzie. Mensen relateren aan waarheid en onrecht.
Kinderen hebben dat gevoel – het is niet eerlijk.
Prover 16
Allemaal angsten
Lichaam in buikgebied
Opstaan met enorme angst en niet kunnen herkennen omdat er is niets.
Na C1 veel gebeurd daarom nu erbij zijn
Dood en afscheid
Vandaag werd ik wakker, zo een angst de hele dag
Gevoel voorgevoelens had
Begrafenisauto tegenkomt en daarna gebeurd iets heel heftigs.. al jaren zo dat als ik ze tegen
Gespannen, hartkloppingen
Gelukkig ik kan nu iets delen, toen Alize vijzel meegaf
Gevoel van losbreken
Linker benen en arm, binnenkant benen schraal
Enorme ijsberg, heel indrukwekkend van boven begon te smelten
Bergen, eenzaam en verlaten
Nek zat vast
....
Skelet beweging van achteren naar binnen
Achter rechter ook pijn
Medelijden, liefde gevoel
Heel koud en zo ontzettend moe
Daarna dagelijkse dingen af te dwalen
IJsberg voor staan? Smelten alsof verharding van het middel, iets zachter kan worden. Vanuit al die dood, afscheid en verdriet. Uitbreken,
doorbreken daaruit, dat gevoel.
Dat lot zo zwaar is om te kunnen dragen (Prover 17 zegt dat ook)
Gevoel hoe moet je dit doen? Periode hiervoor.
Prover 17
Ook boom schilderen, mist de bladeren, doe maar niet.
Verkleed van Praktijkkleren, zat in de auto en ik ben teruggegaan. Ik kon niet gaan.
Enorme rust en sereniteit
Dorst
Alwetend oog, oog van orka wordt oog van havik (weet het ook maar kleiner en meer gefocust, verfijnde blik)
Orka moeder aarde oog
Scherpe zeelucht
Ik mis de bomen en de kracht van de boom
Tijdloosheid
Diepe trance
138
Geen gedachten
Prettig om te zijn leegte en stilte
Wil niet schrappen, dan kom ik uit stilte en rust
Stampen niet door kom heen
Heel emotioneel
Materie is te zwaar, je kan er niet doorheen
Ik wil daar omhoog in de spiritualiteit
Wereld zonder gedachten
Dit leven is me veel te veel
Stoppen met trituratie fysiek te zijn op deze wereld
Ik wil daarboven zijn
Omhoog uit mijn lijf getrokken
Ik wil bewust niet meer hier zijn
Afscheid neem van deze wereld, gevoel
Schrappen, veel herrie maken
Scheten te laten
Herrie maken
Kinderlijke neiging
12-13 jaar gevoel
Bewust vergeten middel te leggen voor patiënt, mag een keer
Verplicht om door te gaan en dan hoesten en stoppen ermee
Bijna dood ervaring, al een keer gehad op andere middel, zo voelde dit ook.
Nu ok
Beeld terminale patiënt. (Prover 4 ook)
Het leven is zwaar. Niet fysiek zwaar is.. emotioneel zwaar vooral.
Prover 18
Terug te kijken naar vorige
Beelden zijn essentieel bij dit middel
Geen woorden kunnen vinden
Dromen heel belangrijk
Constant wakker geweest gevoel van onderdrukking, allemaal Carc innemen in LM1. gaat het weg.
Wrede dromen – vraten kaken vis eruit. Shock dat ik het zag.
Oude schildpadden aten kop van de vis. Associatie over onderdrukte wreedheid.
Tijdens verwrijving stil gevoel harmonieus
What is the name of the game? Iets met spel, soort verleiding en dat slaat het toe
Gevaar komt uit onverwachte hoek
Tijdbeeld is bepalend, tijdgeest bepaald normen en waarden, nee cultuur. Diep geworteld is.
De aard van het beest verander je niet.
Ik zit in een andere werkelijkheid, dimensie. Ik sluit niet aan bij de anderen. Cannabis gevoel iedereen zit te filosoferen.
Prover 15: wreedheid voel ik wel.
Veel dromen, dansen. Nachten gedroomd, pijn in maag, zoveel mensen met zoveel ellende hadden. Mensen zaten er vol van, ze moesten het
kwijt.
Wreedheid: in de droom wel maar in andere dimensie is het geen wreedheid. Tijdbeeld en cultuur is bepalend. Dus andere cultuur of
tijdsbeeld kan het logisch zijn.
Anders in een andere dimensie- botsen van dimensies geeft pijn.
Afgelopen week werkelijkheid bezig geweest. Vriend duidelijk maken dat het zo was. Ik dacht duidelijk zijn dat werkelijkheid veranderd met
voorwerp, hoe jij het bekijkt. Ik wilde heel graag dat een andere die waarheid realiseert. Het is niet iets vaststand.
C4 Trituratie 16 maart 2005
Prover 1
Druk op borst en pijn in voorhoofd
Heel erg in mijzelf
Laat me met rust
Met niemand te maken hebben
Loslaten
Niet hier willen zijn
Ik ben goed zoals ik ben
Hier weg, heb gezien hier = bevrijding gevoel
Irritatie – hard schrappen
Wrijven liever dan schrappen
Wrijven ging goed, schrappen duurde te lang
Verlangen naar muziek bij weg kunnen zweven
Heel veel kleuren
Leegte
Ego bestaan prima, maar ik ga weg
Pijn rechter oor
Ruik frisse geur, lente
Ik wil hier niet zijn
139
Gevoel dat ik weg ben
Als ik terugkom, dit is mijn lot
Daarna eruit..
Supervisor: gevoel dat zij (Prover 1) weg ging
Heftig middel
Hoe voelde je dat? In je lichaam?
Ja, licht worden
Prover 2
Heel lang leeg gebleven
Zwaar en blauw
Voelde stevig draaien, einde licht gevoel
Eigenlijk te stevig, zacht prettiger
Rood voor ogen
Zwart en dan groen en rood
Gevoel van afstand dood gevoel
Onverschillig (niet bij me passen) Het is zo als het is.
Heel lang met ogen dicht
Hagelslag, kou, stilte en koude wereld
Er was geen tijd
Zijn-niet zijn – ik had er niets mee, ik voelde er niets bij
Het is allemaal goed, onverschillig.
Rij mensen door sneeuw lopen
Geen zin in, helemaal nergens toe
Ik vond het pijnlijk
Ogen dicht draaien
SE helderder zie
Draaien lichter
Hier lichter allemaal
Het is helemaal niet zo stevig, lijkt alleen stevig.
140
Prover 3
Angst om te verwrijven naar C5 door verhaal van 11.
Ontzettend aangedaan door verhaal 11. Boosheid, verdriet, ongeloof, BALEN!
Onder de indruk van 11 haar reactie. Sterke vrouw.
Supervisor: Meelevend zijn is van jezelf, actie maar reactie boosheid, balen is van het middel!
Dan moet je het echt doen, want nu zit je in de weerstand en daar moet je overheen.
Prover 5
Enige gelijkmatige
Van boven af naar de wereld kijk
Een sneeuw wereld
Frisse geur van zeepachtig – kruidige geur in meubel winkels in het oosten, Singapore en zo.
Kruidig en fris
Vanuit enige bergdeel naar beneden, geluid gedempt door dikke laag sneeuw
Gedachten aan overleden mensen
Dikke pak sneeuw- vertrouwen
Heel merkwaardig – Alice in Wonderland.
Wie ben ik dat ik deel mag hebben aan..
Barst in eens de concentratie door lachen van iedereen
Stof: het is mij zo gul
Prover 6
Heeft niets te melden
Prover 7
Ik heb een blij gevoel (klinkt niet zo), toen ik begon bedoel ik
Mensen lachen
Jullie te praten, ik zeg er wat van
Schaamte, sorry
Ik moet aan Irene denken
Iets voor haar willen doen om het lichter te maken
Wat moet ze inhalen? Wat in familie nog plaats moet krijgen? En dan weg
Steeds dingen in me opkomen
Vanuit onzekerheid belangrijk willen zijn, dat hoeft nu niet meer, maar dan ben ik nog wel zeker wanneer ik iets moet zeggen. Geen gevoel
voor timing.
Heel blij en dankbaar dat ik tritureer dat er geen PC’s staan.
Gebonden gevoel, ook kan ik niet iedereen helpen want iedereen heeft eigen stuk
Het raakt me maar ik denk ik moet het maar laten.
Zorg om Gert
Wil in deze toestand blijven, ik hoef niet echt verder
Het kan alleen maar beter worden
Zeemanslied in het Duits, maakt me heel blij en dan denk ik..
Hopelijk gaat het geheel niet in elkaar barsten als een grote zeeveld?
Marije experimenten in de oorlog dat mensen iets moeten ervaren wat ze dachten dat ze nooit zouden kunnen doen. Toen geen overzicht en
dat ze er diep in zaten om dat te beseffen.
Film moeten zijn van familie en dan ga ik dingen weten zonder ze meegemaakt te hebben, als het al in je ziel ziet.
Waar zijn mensen krachtig in...????
Zouden wij nog veel moeten wrijven, het geeft niets, wij komen er uit met z’n alleen
Ik voel me er boven staan, het maakt dat ik me schaam
Ik hoef nu niet meer te schrappen.
SE speel spel, kijkt naar mij, schamen daarvoor
Stukje kwijt, heel moe kan niet meer opschrijven
Ben bang, existentiële angst
Nu weet ik het weer, het ging te snel
Als we door blijven gaan blijven in toestand
Angst voor wat er komt?
Prover 11
Dierenverhaal
Ik vind het een beetje flauw
Afvragen waar ik ben
Ik kan niet stoppen met huilen
Voorhoofd kloppen
Afgelopen weken heel moeilijk
Ik wist niet wat ik moest doen
Riep om hulp
Prettig om die man om je heen te hebben
Ik kan niets met Candy voorheen
Beeld van daken van huizen met antennes
Waar gaan die antennes naar toe, vooral naar wat?
Ik word op mijn plaats gezet door middel
Met ego te maken?
Zoveel leed
Vooral vrouwenleed
OPOFFERING
141
Heeft met werkelijke rituelen te maken
In soort wolk en mist
Maan belangrijk
Jonge wolf, ik ben aan het spelen en dat is heel prettig
Vacht warmte en zonnewarmte heel belangrijk
Jeugd en comode heel belangrijk, er staat voor iets maar weet niet wat
Vuur te maken met beslissingen
Bij Indianen, trommel ceremonie gaande, het gaat over oorlog
Vredespijp gerookt maar terwijl we dat doen onderspit moeten leven, het is niet echt. Voor het komisch verhaal is het nodig
Dik stroperig spul, geel, energetisch allemaal vuil, het is niet fijn maar alle anderen kwaliteiten ook zichtbaar
Pees en bloed bezig, vooral pezen belangrijk in het verhaal
Tovenaar, alchemistisch proces het gaat voor de hele wereld en geen emotionele betrokkenheid, het gaat om het totale overzicht.
Wolven, ik word weer een wolf
Ik kan alles ruiken en proeven
Ik communiceert met het water, het gaat over het vuur van de aarde, zeggen de bomen als ik een niew bloesem wil vormen
Groot zwaart gat, hart tekeer
Ipv gele verf is het nu wit
Kattenogen gehad die ik eerder heb gehad
Jungle constant over vocht, buien,
Over eenzaamheid, diepe eenzaamheid
Alles wordt geëlimineerd
Gemeen gevoel gehad
Enorm grote spin, zwarte spin zonder richting of ruimte
Binnenkant huid zwart
Buitenkant helemaal wit
Droge mond
Alles is droog
Heel moe
Niets meer zin heeft
Zin om alles overboord te gooien en niets meer
Heel interessant, ik ben goed aan het kijken wat er gebeurd
Er gebeuren hele grote dingen in mijn omgeving
1 jaar lang partner voor een zaak. Mijn hele toekomst op gebaseerd, bijna verhuisd.
Alles is weg. Vriendje ging weg. Het is niet erg, maar het heeft ook wel wat.
Ook geen mannen die leuke dingen tegen me zeggen, integendeel
7 resoneert met 11
Ik voel veel angst uit jouw spreken en ook heel veel schaamte
15 voelt ook veel eenzaamheid.
Prover 12
Vanmiddag om 14 uur – elke dag dat we C4 hebben
HP in voorhoofd en daarna achter
Gezwollen speeksel klieren
Buikpijn precies onder middenrif
Benen strekken ging niet
Dingen vergeten ondanks goede voorbereiding
Warme handen en voeten en andere trituraties tegengestelde
Rust ontspannen
Onrust chaotisch afwisselend
Niet kunnen concentreren
Zwaar in slaap
Witte wereld alles bedekt en stil maakt
Sneeuw eruit pakken uit mortier, gevoel,ook die kou
Wat is dit nou? Gedachten wie ben jij?
Vervormde gezichten in mortier krijgen en Duitse woorden in mijn hoofd = verwarring
Wat moet ik daar nou mee?
En dan chaotisch
Moe, slaperig en moeite met concentreren
Zwaarmoedig afwisselend met luchtige stemming
Kwetsende voelen van oude dingen, lang geleden
Vooral kwetsende dingen kwamen boven
Prover 13
Heel warrig
Dissociatie gevoel
Ik vergeet alles
Hoofd blanco
Kleuren komen uit, heel duidelijk
Zo ver over grenzen te zijn dat ik de aarde niet meer zie
Het is niet eerlijk hoe mensen elkaar belazeren, iedereen doet het.
Dan slaap
Zelfs in slaap vallen als ik een moord heb gezien (en dan nog verder slapen)
Pijn in arm.
Diepe zee, zweven
142
Half slaap toestand
Waarom val ik in slaap?
Wil ik niet weten
Ik wil wakker en alert zijn
Actie is die telt maar het is eigenlijk niet zo, weet ik
Gert heel hard schrappen.
Soort Lord of the Rings – op het moment dat je in slaap gaat vallen (heb ik vaker)
Droombeelden bij het schrappen, bijna in slaap vallen.
Prover 15
Op een heel bepaalde manier associaties. Niet eenvoudig te vinden
Moe en hongerig. Begrijp er niets van
Gevoel van kou, heel letterlijk (geestelijk)
Spiritueel eenzaam en koud
Hoe komt het dat het zo is en zal zijn?
Noordelijke kou
Uitgestrekt eenzaam en nat
Idee voor stijgen naar....
Het is de overgang
Wit en sneeuw
Overgang door doodsgebeuren heen
Woord: skelet kwam steeds in me op
Elkaar beschuldigen uitweg om verder te komen om in de vrijheid te kunnen komen,
Zorgt voor antwoord en oplossing. (te maken heeft met sterk aan de dood doet denken, beelden van Ars patiënten, tibetaanse meditaties met
stervenden, energie opgespaard door kou om transformatie te maken, nodig is dat voor mensen sterven beschuldigen de omgeving om vrij te
kunnen komen)
Doodmakend – op zij zetten. Dat is de doorgang door de dood, kou nodig om in stilte te komen
Droogte gevoel – zelfs pijnlijk
Dr Zhivago
Diepe grote liefde met voortkomen uit het kou, kou nodig om daarin te komen
Kou bloeit en kracht ontwikkeling, door kou heen en winterslaap
Energie opbouw nodig om naar buiten toe te komen
Fenomeen natuur zich terugtrekt in de winter – een aantal bomen en planten nodig om te kunnen groeien. Dat was het gevoel.
SE dat het doorgegaan moet worden. Verder tritureren naar C5.
Sterk idee van verstillend zijn.
Afgevraagd hoe kom ik er bij?
Prover 16
Ik zag jou 18? in die sfeer zitten, in het wit spiritueel. Heel leuk gewoon.
Stil en krachtig en rustig
Winter vlakte
Zorgeloos, dankbaar, stil en rust
Alize resoneert met 17, 7 en 2 voor mijn gevoel is het hetzelfde.
Niet met 18
Prover 17
Diepe onverschilligheid
Doet me helemaal niets
Ik reed hier naar toe, voor mij sliep
Ik wist niet wat ik moest doen, auto op cruise controle
ABS in werking, op vluchtbaan geweest.
Ik zag auto’s volop rennen en ik wist niet meer wat ik moest doen
Met beide benen remmen zoeken, anders ben ik dood.
Paar seconden maar.
Ik heb mijn auto bedankt
Stikaanvallen weer gehad, week of 8 niet gehad
Dit middel wil ik helemaal niet meer. Klep verkeerd. Ik verslik me overdag.
Kom hier binnen, voel meteen heel veel bij Irene. Weet niet of ik haar mag storen.
Begin met stof
Slaat op mijn keel
Ik wil niet stikken. Ik wil niet dood
Ik wil leven , enorm verdriet
Enorme pijn in linker rib en dan rechts
Steken alsof longen protesteren
HP rechter oog en dan naar links en dan voorhoofd
Niets doet me iets
Alles zit vast in mij
Er is geen beweging
Wat doe ik hier?
Er is niets, er is niets.
Verschrompelde huid,
Geen leven, mummie soort
Gedroogd
Ik wil niets doen alleen maar heen en weer
143
SE Borst groeien en zwellen
Ik voel bijna nooit bij mannen aantrekkingskracht ontzettend onttrekking kracht in
Hij triggert het geile in mij
Overgangsfase, SE golfpatroon
Bevroren van binnen
Afgelopen weken zo vrij en onbezorgd dat het bijna levensgevaarlijk
Bijna geschept door grafmachine
Warmte naar mijn hoofd
Ik kan genezen met mijn handen, was weg
Hitte in hoofd en gezicht ook
Bewust – wel genoeg doe en ben voor omgeving?
Ik wil niemand te kort doen
Ik voel me heel verdrietig
Toekomst beeld – ik mag in de toekomst kijken
Ontroert mij enorm.
Daarna allemaal patiënten die ik niet heb kunnen helpen, voorbij komen
Knikken en zwaaien naar mij alsof het ok is. Ik heb genoeg gegeven.
Schrappen en verwarring, alles laten vallen geen zin om dingen vast te houden
Heel erg moe
Ik heb Torticollis naar links, iedereen zit scheef naar links. Voor kinderen met KISS syndroom. Alleen Gert zat recht.
Dan in verdriet, ik wil rust en ik wil niets meer doen
SE alsof ik vast zit, kan niet in andere beweging (KISS) – vastzitten
Geen zin meer
Ik wil slapen
Voor gevoel huil ik
Ik wil slapen en ik wil niets meer
Ik wil niet meer
Geen connectie met omgeving
Prima alleen
Afgesloten ruimte zit ik
Bij bewustwording = kokhalzen
En nu is het afgelopen
En dan: ik wil nog steeds niet dood
En nou moet ik er doorheen
Driftig draaien
Ik moet doorzetten om te kunnen leven.
Enorm bewust van geen tijd.
Prover 18
Ook iets met Egypte gehad
Vanochtend HP links voorhoofd
2 dagen gelden gedroomd door slang, heel dun, stop in een zak en slang bijt, laat vallen
gaat weg, kinderen de trappen oplopen en gebeten worden maar ze voelen dat niet.
Op weg hier naar toe. 3 mannen een soort seksuele energie, gesprekken op de fiets,
Flirten, met de lente te maken?
Hoe lang ben jij? 2-3 meter, vrouw zat er naast. Heel grappig!
Op eens in een tempel waar handen werden geofferd, offeren van het mannelijke ten gunste kracht de vrouw, sterven maar alleen de kleine
dood = orgasme van de man.
SE van gebruik, voorwerp om tot het hogere te komen = spirituele. Orgastische energie, spirituele bewust gaan van beneden naar boven. Als
soort drug, werkt in je geest.
En dan kruinchakra verruiming. Dat is die explosie ook. = druk in hoofd. Druk moet eruit. Energie opgeslagen.
Wrijven heel fijn een soort opbouw energie in mij lijf, kwam van benen.
Inwijdingsritueel.
OBS: Heel veel lachen in de zaal
De kleine dood – 3 dagen in sarcofaag. Inleiders dood.
Verkeerde orakel meegenomen Ik had Godinnen kaart moeten meenemen. Heel veel met priesteressen en Godinnen.
Sterke vrouwen, vrouwen met veel kracht.
Hij is dienend in het vrouwelijke principe. Gert enige man.
Beeldvorming – ritueel met vrouwen, een kring energie vanuit de grond door lichaam heen, schoot van beneden naar boven.
Waanzinnige power.
C5 moeten maken, vanuit derde oog heel ruimte.
Veels te kort.
Geen HP meer.
Kleuren? Paars en blauw
In een wit gewaad met gouden band omhoog.
Prover 20
Bijna alles wat prover 15 heeft
Droge mond
Heel moe
Iets met oordeel weet niet wat, schuld aan de andere geven (Alize) het is zo zwaar dat je dan zelf wel door kunt gaan. Eerst negatief
beoordelen en daarna iets moois uit, het kan ook ok zijn. Deze manier van denken volstrekt nieuw voor mij. Waarneming was het eigenlijk.
Schuld is dus nodig, als uitweg, ergens uit komen. En ook nog bedenken dat het een oplossing kan zijn. Andere is ervaring van koud en
doorgang. En transformatie die nodig hebt om te verkouden om alle krachten te verzamelen om te groeien, begin trituratie: waar zal dit toe
leiden? Kou en eenzaamheid. Noordelijke landen, altijd koud, zag ik. Niets met Egypte te maken. Tegenpool (Vanessa).
Dementie, verstervend, dood van eigen vader
144
Mager en botten
Zo moe en hongerig, ben ik ziek?
C5 Trituratie 1 April 2005
Prover 2
Irritatie
Geen zin
Alize opmerking –dubbel nog geïrriteerde en een soort vrolijkheid
Stom gedoe dit, dacht ik
Zie je wel, ik had het niet moeten doen terwijl ik geen zin in
Het is hier echt niet serieus
Ontzettende boosheid
Ik gooi dat ding uit het raam
Super belachelijk
Geen zin meer dan
Veel plezier om Gert en zijn geschrapt
Bleekwater
Sloom gevoel in mond
Er veranderd niets aan als ik er wel mee of niet mee doe
Pijn rechter oor
Misselijkheid < door draaien (wrijven) en er ook niet nakijken
Geluid vervelend
Ik ben blij dat het over is!
Prover 3
Niet meegedaan aan de trituratie. Weerstand. En niet van mijn gevoel af willen. Bij mijzelf blijven.

Tijd
Verdriet en vreugde door elkaar, blijdschap

Joligheid gevoel dat het zo kan omslaan en dan niet leuk (Vanessa)
Voelde heel erg alsof groep uit elkaar getrokken werd, als jullie weggaan, dan voor eigen tijd zorgen eigen verantwoordelijkheid
Toen jullie terug kwamen over, dan groep weer bij elkaar
Ik zie allemaal doornroosjes, jullie waren er niet meer, jullie zaten in dromenland
Iedereen volkomen weg Obs Gert
Energie werkt anders op mannen of vrouwen. Iets met seksualiteit te maken.
SE van verantwoordelijkheid maar sterk voor het hier en nu
Prover 7
Blij en opgewonden
En tegelijk obstinaat
Wij kunnen net zo goed met elkaar koken, het gaat om het doen
Hard lachen Nanny en ik dacht dit is een leuk middel, Nanny nooit zo zien doen
Wilde naar buiten maar niemand houdt dan de tijd bij.
Ik voelde wat verzet, mooi werd met elkaar het maakte me bang
Fijn gevoel en straks is dat weer weg
Verbondenheid met elkaar prettig
Maakte me bang omdat het onvoorspelbaar is
Gevoel dat het zo kan draaien
Ik wist niet dat het vrijdag was
Vis dag
Onzin komt uit geloof en ik heb er niets mee
Goede vrijdag verhaal..
145
Hoorde iedereen stampen en dat was wel fijn, iedereen bezig met een bepaald ritueel
SE straks gaat geest opstijgen, ramen moeten open
Buddha, rituelen
Voelde heel licht
Het individuele doet er niet meer toe
Het viel me op dat iedereen heen en weer lopen
Iedereen zo bezig met de tijd
Prover 8
Verantwoordelijkheid als plicht staan
Er boven kijken, het gouden van bovenaf
Moeilijk om het licht te krijgen, waardoor voor mij donker en geïsoleerd aanvoelde omdat ik er niet goed in kon kijken
Afgeleid door chloor geur (Clara sterk water)
Tijdloos gevoel
Pikte gedachten op, helder moment
Voelde heel helder
Vorige keer – sterke helderheid gevoeld in mijzelf
Observerende helderheid
IJspegels terechtkomen

Noordzee
Jong Anima deel van vermoord wordt, invulling van mijzelf
Jong vrouwelijke wordt in de kin gesmoord, dat beeld houdt op
Moeite om het serieus te nemen, ook wat ik hier doe en de homeopathie serieus te nemen. Als ik dit zomaar kan doen = twijfel over
homeopathie
Overgelaten gevoel aan het lot
Derde oog in het midden van substantie schaduw patronen te maken met adelaar, schaduwmakers
Prikkeling in neus – substantie in via de neus?
Licht-donker
Leven in het paradoxe, juist steeds belangrijk om dat te mogen voelen en een keuze te mogen maken
Prover 11
Flauw gevoel vond ik het
Adelaar kwam van de videocasus
Bij de vrouw overzicht
Los willen zijn van alles
Gewoon vrij maar los
Erg warrig
Reuzen – alle soorten en maten
Bergtoppen- echt de top van de bergen
Het hart als orgaan als symbool
Heen en weer geslingerd, of heel erg mooi of verdwaasd?
Boom is vlammenzee staan, elke boom in een kleur
Lichaam alles samentrekken, gevoel
Verkrampen
Alles in lichaam werd klein
Bovenkant van het hoofd had ik niet meer, er was alleen energie, bewoog omhoog?
Weer een reus, die keek op de aarde neer, was aan het vijzelen en die maakte de sterren
Dubbel – ga je daar niet te ver in? Zei tegen mijzelf
Verantwoordelijk voelen voor alles, maar vooral voor de aarde
Letterlijk moeder aarde, milieu (Alize ook)
Verantwoordelijke met mijn hele geest, allemaal verantwoordelijk
Over verleiding maar niet met lust erbij of uiterlijk
SE verleidelijkheid zonder lust, zacht, mooi en universeel
Beeld giraf, ogen van een giraf
Sneeuw, eskimo’s
Verantwoordelijkheid welzijn van de aarde
Visoen over de toekomst, hoe het zou gaan met mij en de zaak
Het ging allemaal over begrip.
Toekomst – horkaan, tornado in Amerika vanuit India?
Ik voel me heel anders als de vorige keer maar wel heel verantwoordelijk,
Deze verantwoordelijkheid ga ik niet meer kwijt raken (Vanessa een van de trituraties – mijn leven is voorgoed veranderd)
Prover 13
Begin wakker zin plezier te maken
Naar buiten heerlijk, zalig
Nu wil leven veranderen radicaal maar weet niet waar te beginnen
146
7 minuten duurde heel kort
Verdriet SE druk op hart?
...
Hoe kan ik het toch goed maken?
Dit na de dood is, gevoel
Teleurstelling
....
Nu nog niet weg, zit er nog in
Prover 15
Hetzelfde gevoel
Dubbele emoties wel niet wel niet
Vorige keer hoefde niet en de rest zo overtuigd van wel
Merkwaardig dat mensen weg zijn van wat ze volovertuiging wilden.
Tegengestelde emoties
Tegengestelde van Alumina casus (die daarvoor bekeken werd)
Ineens heel stil – alsof verdieping lager:
Om iets te bereiken moet je door weerstand heen angst is...
Zo verschrikkelijk vervelend ineens kwam ik weer terecht in tegenstelling waardoor oorlog is ontstaan:
Wij moeten begrijpen dat tegenstelling niet is, als tegenstelling meestelling is dan worden we eens gered...
Wond is heel groot, hier kan ik er niet uit komen
Hopeloos gevoel, terug naar 2e trituratie
Tegenstelling is niet groot maar lijkt groot
Obstakel – Obstinaat = weerstand zit er ook in
Naar buiten gegaan – naar binnen gaan zwaar voor mij
Oplossing geloof in jezelf te hebben en dat te kunnen overstijgen
Belast voelen met deze gegevens uit het verleden.
Er zit veel meer in het middel
Einde-transformatie
Gevoel van willen overstijgen en samenkomen.
Beelden van tegenstelling in de grote wereld. Persoon niveau te overstijgen is belangrijk
Sterk gevoel van oorlog zijn. Vervelend om het hier te zeggen.
Middel van Krijgers - eerste symbool getrokken door Jacqueline toen ze naar boven ging.
Boosheid- waarom moeten we dat proces door om samen te zijn naar het hogere zijnsnivo te zijn. Ik ervaar die tegenstelling als wreedheid.
Waarom kunnen we die stap niet overslaan?
Een kinderlijk gevoel was dat! Het donkere overslaan.
Moment niet willen dat te doorleven.
Sterke tegenstelling in mij – heel lief en liefdevol naar omgeving en familie kan zijn en wreed naar de wereld zijn = alles met oorlog te
maken. SE dom en vermoeiend, dat gevoel.
Chloor heeft daarmee te maken. In Chloor gaat niets leven. Vulkaan – geuren waarin niets kan leven. Chloorlucht is dood. Dodelijke geur,
leeft midden in de aarde.
Doorroosje- sprookje tegenstellingen.
Prover 18
Licht en luchtig
Speels
Helderheid
Ruimte in mijn denken
Vrijheid
Voelde verbinding met iedereen met gevoel vrij erin te bewegen
Visoen – iedereen leuk lachen – Irene oude bekende
Ontmoeting met totemdier
Belangrijk contact te maken met oersymbolen
Energie door lichaam stromen en tegelijk licht
Dreamcatcher – je eigen droom opvangen in glaswater en dan opdrinken
(Dreamcatcher houden slechte dromen tegen)
Oersymbolen en dan naar boven – pakte er een lezen en dan onzin eigenlijk
Je moet je eigen symbolen leren begrijpen en doorgronden, veel belangrijker.
Antwoord ligt in de vraag – Ontsloten
Prover 19
Onraakbaar
Geen gedachten niets
Wel fijn
Prover 20
Heel ongeconcentreerd
Zal de Paus wel/al dood zijn?
147
Ik vond het niet leuk dat jullie weggingen naar buiten
Ongeïnteresseerd in het middel
Na tijdje kreeg ik iets meer maar het blijft een beetje vaag
Een beetje misselijke
Seksualiteit en spanning daar om heen
Buikpijn en misselijk
Rugpijn
Thema DOOD – vaag iets met iemand prostaat kanker
Seksualiteit
Stel voor dat ze me komen halen omdat er iets gebeurd is thuis, hoe zal ik dan rijden
Wat zou er dan gebeurd zijn?
Alles te maken met DOOD
