This is the time of bonding with the mother and developing a sense of basic trust. But still, even though everything is given to the baby, some babies are born with "their topic". Something that makes their life difficult from the very beginning. Parents often wonder - "Where does it come from that early in life?", "Why does my child always have ear infections or bronchitis or skin irritations?", "Why doesn´t it sleep through the night?". Every child is born with a specific constitution and characteristics. Some can be inherited from previous generations, some might be actual experiences during pregnancy, birth and early life. Sometimes the body communicates very early and indicates that something is off balance. Every human being, regardless of age, perceives situations differently and reacts individually. Homoeopathy assesses these early "life topics" and seeks to solve and to understand them, so that they are not carried along on one´s life´s journey.
Give them roots when they are small, give them wings when they grow up ...
This is the time of separating from the mother, connecting to the father and other people, obtaining autonomy, and developing it´s own identity. "Who am I?", "What do i want?", "Can I take own decisions?", "How dependent am I from other people´s expectations and esteem?". It is the time of curiously discovering the world. Every child approaches this development phase at it´s own speed and in it´s own way. The concept of homoeopathy assesses potential resistances that are expressed via physical or psychological symptoms. Overcoming those barriers supports the child´s further development and the new challenges ahead.
Puberty remains to be a major source for disruption and distress, both for parents and children. Puberty is part of life, equipped with minor and major consequences. It is important to deal with it and to embrace it. Being a teenager, an identity has developed and still emerges. Physical developments are well underway and can be the reason for major questions, fears and worries. "I start to understand who I am, but do I have enough self-esteem to cope with life and it´s challenges?", "Will i be strong enough to take care of myself and protect me?". It is important to understand the rules of life, to be able to engage socially and to prepare for the adult world and it´s demands. For parents and teenagers it is the time and big opportunity to work on this together, before the teenager goes on and leads his own life.
Perceive and recognize yourself
In every life there are life changing moments - pregnancy and birth are such turning points. A new life is approaching, the body changes and life gets a complete new perspective and responsibility. For some women this is all positive. Other women are very insecure about it. When certain symptoms occur, physically or psychologically, they are often attached to worries and fears. At the same time this archaic phase of intense "self-consciousness" can be the origin for understanding one´s own journey and personal development and can lead to deeper understanding and healing.
There is magic in every beginning that protects us and helps us go on living ... (Herman Hesse)
A long phase in everybody´s life, equipped with different challenges. According to one´s individual set of competencies and possibilities we have embarked on our life´s journey. Partnership, marriage, family and professional life demand a lot of strength and attention. New projects, creativity and responsibility can be travel companions on everyone´s journey. Physical and psychological problems occur, some of them familiar since childhood, some of them completely new. We believe that especially life challenging situations (pregnancy, birth, separation, new job, ...) affect every individual and often times symptoms can develop. They are closely connected to the individual adult and the current situation. This is the time to understand which perception, which "pair of glasses" determines one´s world. Why we see certain things in a certain way and why some things remain uncovered. This brings us very close to the essence of our individual life. The better and the deeper an individual understands himself, the closer he is to his own inner self and essence. The body no longer needs to "send" signals and life´s journey becomes easier.
Now it is the time to enjoy what you have generated throughout your life´s journey and to look back. It might also be the time to come to terms with major issues in life that have accompanied you for many years. In the past they were the sources for your own individual physical or psychological body symptoms. Finally, coming to terms with such issues should result in peace of mind, especially while approaching the end of one´s life journey. In this very special phase in life the holistic approach of homoeopathy can still help to understand and solve your own life issues in order to come to peace with yourself and to be able to leave this world with inner freedom.
