In many self improvement, motivational books and classes, there is the thought that if we are not happy with our life situation and want to change it, we need to change ourselves first, change our thinking, change our inner talk and language, change our mindset, and become in touch with what we want. This is changing the inside. With these inside changes, the outside will reflect this. And then changes to our situation will have occurred. It will be easier to make these changes since there has been a shift inside of us.
This is how we want a healing to be, not just a palliating of our symptoms until we need to take the medication again, but a real healing. This is what a homeopathic healing is like. The healing first is on the inside, then reflected on the outside. So it could be that a person is feeling better in themselves, experiencing a good sense of well being, but their skin eruption may be worse. Then as the healing continues, the skin is better. This is from the inside to the outside.
If you haven’t read my blog post STRESS and Homeopathy, posted in September 2013, please do. I talk about how stress is a part of life, and things will just happen. It is what I call our automatic response mode that can cause ill health; it is not the outside, that is the stress. Our automatic response is the inside. As the inside heals, how we handle our lives changes.
Healing from the inside to the outside is one Dr. Constantine Herring’s Directions of Cure. The other two healing directions are from the top (the head) to the bottom (the feet), and from newer symptoms to older ones. (I wrote more about the Direction of Cure in a May 2013 blog post titled The Direction of Cure: How Homeopathy Assesses Healing, in Regards to Asthma and Eczema.)
In this blog post, I wanted to point out the similarity between working on our inner selves and the healing with homeopathy. Both help one move from a place or state of disturbance, chaos, ill health, being stuck, to a state of health, freedom, potential fulfillment, choice, growth and well being. Actually, I have found that one moves faster and sustains the work they do on the inner selves even more, when they have also invested in homeopathic healing. I believe this is so, because homeopathy works on an energetic plane. We become ill on an energetic plane, and we need to heal on that plane. Again, this is the inside.
