The dignity of women is (un)tangibly
Delusion, three doctors are coming (1)
Sepia was the first remedy that has been worked out in my class at the
Samuel Hahnemann School. It touched me very personally. But instead of
showing my dismay or talk to someone about it, I have ordered on my own
Sepia. Although I was in treatment with Andreas , have my self-treatment
but not agreed with him, but informed him about it. This concern is dealing
with their own characteristic of Sepia. It is very typical for them, that they
know themselves what is good for them and that they then act accordingly.
As Andreas me asked about 3/4 years later, if I wanted to write this article, I
was not surprised because I had already started at that time to collect my
thoughts and experiences to Sepia. When Andrew asked me, it seemed
only logical to publish it as well.
That was not always so. At the time when I had to deal with my own Sepia-
issue, it seemed to me to mention hazardous, especially about my thoughts
and experiences as to the acceptance of my views to fight. The thought
that maybe I could write without a fight or talk about it sometime, or would
even asked me, did not - in the face of this terrible, patriarchal structured
school where the language has only fathers, students, and gods.
What has changed at least? I was not surprised by it anymore. What has
changed is my handling of these structures, I have a momentous healing
dream (see below) and I am now of the opinion that a patriarchal structured
school also has its advantages when the men redeemed at the school
specific parts and the system does not for the sake of the system exists,
but because of the better systems need to be worked out again.
I will describe first Sepia as an animal to show then the pharmaceutical
image with the main focus of the sepic psyche.
I would like to give some explanations beforehand. We are working with
subtle energies, high potency, and thereby affect miasmatic problems and

homeopaths over here
karmic connections. We speak of the principle of death and rebirth, and the
task facing the individual's life and show their coping with our homeopathic
remedy ways to give a particular power, to tread this path too.
It seems reasonable to include these things when looking with an agent
rather than just theorizing and over again. What is meant by "miasmatic
range"? When we speak of miasmatic preloads, we mean the collective
past in which there is still work to specific topics. The miasmatic problem
did not arise in this life, but the triggering cause is back for more. When we
talk about miasmas and collective fields, you can also use the term karma.
The box refers to the collective past of the individual types of constitution,
that each homeopathic constitution has a specific task, which deal with in
this life is about. The task of Lycopodium is for example the assumption of
responsibility on the one hand and the constructive use of their own
weakness on the other. In simpler terms is based on any constitutional
remedy a collective karma. This collective karma manifests itself in humans
individually. The next step is to bring the problems of people today in
connection with previous incarnations. Evidence may be the remedies.
Assuming it is obvious that the past is the problem or central idea of an
agent a closer look.
Sepia can only be understood in its contemporary manifestations, when the
history of women in the last centuries, conscious and aware. That past is
the past of Sepia and the history of the dehumanization of women.
In this work, it's also about the dignity of women, their sexuality and
Sepia is considered a "woman" remedy. In a homeopathic treatment that is
not content only with the odometer superficial symptoms but also the
initiatic level considered a therapy (open doors), is almost every woman at
the issue of collective dignity violation and collective abuse of women - and
therefore in the 1000s for her years of living roots of women's knowledge
and matriarchal goddess near. I speak, therefore, generally more women.
Men and Sepia I will discuss separately.
Sepia, the animal and his image analogies to the remedy
The cuttlefish Sepia officinalis belongs to the family of decapods and is a
two germinal shet cephalopod, that is, a cephalopod. Here, the first analogy
is the remedy picture. The feet, that is, tentacles, as executive agents shall
establish, to the head. Even with the Sepia woman leave the executive
organs of the head. Head and ratio are very dominant, often lacks the
"belly", that means they will not get to her feelings and does not imply a
weakness. Sepia is brutal with their own vulnerability to (which I will discuss
Sepia is the home of the Mediterranean. Even Sepia women love the sea,
they like to spend their holidays in Greece, while they constantly complain
to the catastrophic patriarchal relations and spurred the continual pickup of
the Greeks, the hunger for conquest through their defiant eyes open and
direct. The Greek term "Kiamaiki" is translated literally by harpooning,
colloquially, the Greek men use it for "women flam".
Mainly occurring in the Mediterranean cuttlefish is 20-30 cm long. Their
tentacles are as long and surround the mouth opening. They are filled with
four rows of suckers, with their food which they can catch hold small fish,
and. she also has two long tentacles that bear suckers only at the tips. The
Sepia is in large due to their dark eyes which are far apart on the sides of
the head, as well as the ability to arbitrarily eject a black-brown, fishy-
smelling juice in an up to 6 cm long and 3 cm thick bladder in the abdomen
is located. This bubble will open like a funnel towards the neck. The so-
called ink is ejected when the squid danger and she wants to shake off her
pursuers. Just as the cuttlefish Sepia also has the patient who comes into
practice, large, dark, deep eyes, a clear eye for the weaknesses of others.
Through these eyes it looks awesome, regal and dignified. Often suppress
their eyes in fear, but they can also trigger anxiety. Like the octopus of the
potential enemy robs the vision disappears, starts the Sepia woman attacks
in the form of sharp hurtful allegations, which the others must cope only
once, as they distract from their true feelings and their hurt. As the fish they
sought solitude, but also escapes from the affection that you will be met
The Sepia has few natural enemies, the most dangerous enemy is man.
Striking is the fishing method. Divers descend into the sea to skewer the
squid with a single harpoon. Then it hits them on a stone, the ink from the
belly, so they wander in the nice clean sale able. The drug has a strong
affinity for Sepia abdomen, particularly in relation to degradation, which is
symbolized here by the blows to the abdomen.
The pain that the animal is added surfaced frequently in the dreams of
The spiritual master of the patient gives her a trident (includes Sepia feel
free to spiritual masters).
2. Dream same patient after Sepia:
She swims in the sea and looking for the trident on the basis of the bottom.
3. Dream, another patient:
She is caught in the net, and men thrust a trident into her back.
Experience of another patient:
She is with her boyfriend in bed, and he reads from the book in front of
"20000 Leagues Under the Sea" by Jules Verne. Is being fought as a giant
octopus with axes and tridents, they experienced the pain themselves
physically by her side.
The Sepia officinalis has a very interesting sex life, especially in the notice
that they cannot sit and watch. After a couple of cuttlefish were swum long
time one beside the another without having touched a single time, the male
transfers his sperm squid in a severed arm including a small pouch in the
female squid. Sepia people also need before having sex a very long
approach phase, which is very susceptible to interference. If the phone
rings during foreplay, the partners syas something inappropriate or a family
member looks into the room, everything stops. For this, the statement of a
patient: "1000 candles must be burning". Typically for Sepia would be the
request of Carmen : "Dance for me!"
When the female squid has dropped the fertilized eggs, it leaves the brood.
In Sepia women's general condition and the symptoms worsened during
and after pregnancy (3). So Sepia often helps with morning sickness during
the first 3 months, which may be better after breakfast. Sepia is indicated
when a woman has difficulty dealing with the traditional role of woman as
mother. This inner rejection can manifest itself in a physical aversion to
pregnancy. (Gisa: or being infertile)
The discovery of the homeopathic Sepia
The ink of the squid was used as the well-known colour under the name of
Sepia-paint. Painters licked their brushes, and Hahnemann noticed that this
could have adverse consequences for the Sepia color. Then he examined it
and found its inclusion worthy in the line of homeopathic remedies.
The material of Sepia contains mainly Calcium carbonicum, Magnesium
carbonicum, Natrium sulfuricum, Natrium muriaticum, and the pigment
The Sepia Pathology
For Vithoulkas the Sepia constitution arises from the hormonal stasis,
which extends to all levels of being, until the image of the masculinized,
emotionally cold and frigid, harsh or exhausted wife is reached, who is
indifferent to everything and everyone, who has aversion to sex and hurts
her human beings with sharp, striking remarks (5). From a physiological
point the hormonal stasis leads to these symptoms. However, there is also
a cause for hormonal stasis in the disturbance of the vital force, which first
manifested in the nature of human being, in his "morality" (6). For Sepia,
there is a typical disorder of the vitality of her understanding, I want to
convey in the following one path.
The central idea
The first and most important issue is the dignity in Sepia. They suffer as a
result of injured dignity, and cannot defend herself against continued
infringement dignity. If injury can have many different faces of Sepia, as
she is very sensitive to influences from outside. The concept of dignity
appears strikingly frequently in her use of language. There is a remedy-
specific recognition of question that is often the turning point of history:
"What is the dignity?" In this context, the word dignity has the character of a
word slogan from long ago. It is as if a curtain is falling down, which has
hung in between therapist and woman-patient till that moment. Sepia needs
someone who knows the rules of the game, who knows Sepia and deals
with it so that their dignity is respected. Once the password has fallen, the
woman patient describes her dignity trampled on, as lost, or as bashed.
This reaction can also occur in relation to the injured woman collective
dignity. "Dignity" is the buzz word or password for the Sepia problems, and
Sepia has a very low tolerance when it comes to violations of their dignity,
that is, it is very easy to injure Sepia in this point. Human dignity is
inviolable, says the Constitution. But that the dignity of women is tangibly
show history and Sepia.
Sepia disease is caused by injury to dignity, mostly related to sexuality.
Sepia is the most widely used means for sexual abuse in childhood. Often
women, who need Sepia, have been sexually abused as children or as
adults, often by fathers, grandfathers or acquaintances. According to 'white
water', one in four girls by father, uncle or stepfather is sexually abused.
“Wildwasser” defines sexual abuse as follows: "... all the things that give
girls that they are not as human beings are interesting and important, but
that men may freely dispose of them, that they obtain through their
reduction to the importance of sexual object, that they equipped with
physical attractiveness and facilities to give men like this every assault is
one of the girls, whether it's hidden careful touches that make them pass
over him or even make must, forced oral sex or a real rape" (7 ). Every
action or thought, in which a person is not perceived as such, but because
of his race and used, without that he has the freedom to withdraw from this,
is sexual abuse. Sexual abuse is not only forced sexual intercourse, but
also touches, looks, words of appreciation or 'expert' comments about the
state of buttocks and breasts in adolescent girls. These forms of sexual
abuse, we almost all have experienced. And we have kept us laughing and
ashamed or embarrassed. It was seldom possible to escape these
situations, permanent, aggressive defense was not socially desirable, and
because of the dependence of these men, often fathers, relatives, or
friends of the family, not possible. There are girls who make these more
subtle abuses of a few. In case of Sepia they dig deep into the memories
and solve a consistently negative attitude towards men and / or a contempt
for themselves and their bodies, which was so often the trigger for
embarrassment and shame. In addition, Sepia is very very unforgiving
when it comes to these things. Together with Natrium muriaticum. it may
be the remedy of Materia Medica, which forgive worst and looks after
thoughts of revenge longest.
Often the degradation has been started earlier, specially at conception.
Marital rape is still not illegal and therefore not an issue. Long had sexual
intercourse for women, only a marital duty to which they could abuse
themselves, without ever having met her own pleasure. They have stalled
and acquiesced. Beliefs in a state of indignity Sepia cause illness in women
and the unborn. Unwanted children are growing up in a state of indignity in
the Sepia of the mother approached, without having to defend against the
refusal of the mother. Children who have survived abortion attempts can do
Sepia. Girls, who should become boys and try to replace the son for their
parents and thereby deny their own womanhood, will need Sepia. When
women suffer from feelings of guilt after abortion, they can help Sepia.
(Dream of a woman patient after Sepia.. She is on a distant planet to meet
the child that she aborted. (S)he tells her that (s)he's fine and that they will
find themselves on another level.)
Women have identified at all times on birth and abortion themself. Abortion
is not always degrading, but the way how it is done today, there is a high
degree: the many questions to be answered, the evidence to be provided
and, ultimately, the process itself, in hospitals or clinics, often contempt and
means of injury.
Sepia and medicine
Traditional medicine in its current state is extremely hurtful and destructive,
and that, since this area has been removed from the women. It's no longer
about persons, only about parts and machinery. Children experience
doctors who come with cold impersonal fingers and hurt them or only touch
them without having perceived them as a being. They are delivered to them
helplessly. Hospitalizations and medical treatments in the childhood often
lead to the Sepia pathology. The damage by the medicine goes on if girls
come to the puberty and go to the gynecologist. Get undressed, on the
chair lay with naked, open alvus without having seen this person generally,
which will put his fingers or metal parts there, never mind to have spoken
with him, is dignity-injuring highly. There is general medicine and
gynecology. General practice was the medicine for men (who is especially
male), at the Gynecology is the medical specialty for the deviant, or at least
something special, namely for the woman. In recent decades, the
Andologie arose, the men's health, which deals with the structure and
function of the male sex organs. Gynecology was established in 19th
century as a direct response to a first wave of feminism. It was and is
designed to destroy the female dignity, to cut this dignity, while it takes the
femininity from the woman, takes her cycle and her closeness to nature,
her desire and sensuality as well as her ability to give birth (birth control
pills, clitoridectomy, hysterectomy, mastectomy, estrogen, etc. .).
Look Mary Daly in her book "Gyn/ecology" (p.3):
"That taught in 1848 - the year of the first women's rights convention - Dr.
Charles Meigs, his students, the study of the female organs will make them
able and bring in a position, to understand and to control the internal being,
the consciousness and soul of women. The clitoridectomy, ten years later
by the English Isaac Baker 'invented', was enthusiastically welcomed by
some American gynecologists as a 'cure' against female masturbation. In
1852 Dr. August Kinsley Gardner raised war shouting against 'lewd women'
and this included for him feminists, Bloomer-wearers (Bloomers are wide
flowing trousers, BS) and midwives. In the sixties of last century,
announced Dr. Isaac Ray and his contemporaries, the reason for the
tendency of women to hysteria, insanity and crime would be in their sex
organs. The year 1873 recorded the publication of Dr. Robert Batteys
invention of the "female" castration, namely the removal of the ovaries for
the cure of "madness" The next few decades the removal of the ovaries
became at the gynecologist for the obsession. They stated, it would lift the
morality of the women-patients, promotes her amiability, love of order,
diligence and cleanness" Under these circumstances, the symptoms
"indifferent to their nearest household duties" and Sepia-rebellion could be
eliminated from the start. So these are the beginnings of gynecology.
What does this have to do with today? Today it's all completely different.
Really? The latest trend is to hysterectomies. To legitimize this form of
castration, the uterus, for example as "a potential breeding ground for
cancer," and described as a potentially "fatal organ." Women are
intimidated until they have lost all faith and every contact with your body
and keep all the medical steps necessary. Here they are concealed, "that
the rate of hysterectomies is actually higher than the mortality rate for
uterine / cervical cancer." (8) that were not enough, at the same time, the
breast surgery developed delusions. "At present, the prophylactic removal
seems almost the entire breast tissue is the only way to prevent an obvious
risk in women breast cancer," write the authors of an article on breast
cancer (9). And it continues: "Some people advocate this approach as the
most effective prophylactic method for patients at high risk, not to mention
the fact that the risk is eliminated by diagnostic radiation." As long as
women are afraid, they are docile and manipulable. The fear of these
diseases will be planted them. Concealed is that they are largely iatrogenic.
Women have forgotten that they created for political reasons by the
distinguished men of medicine and it also involved their church was very
old (self-) healing powers and used force.
Sepia is an important tool for problems in the menopause. Women are
inundated with propaganda aimed at convincing them that menopause had
a disease that must be "treated". The decrease in estrogen levels is
considered to be carcinogenic and a cause of hot flushes and sweats, as
well as psychological symptoms such as irritability, listlessness, etc. It is
never mentioned that the menopause is a natural process and women is
taking place in those parts of the world where cancer is unknown. What is
the significance of menopause for women? If the possibility to get pregnant
no longer exists, a traditional method is eliminating, to keep women
imprisoned and make them immobile - but not by the above-mentioned
possibilities of castration, but by natural processes in the female body,
which escapes in their consequences of control by the traditional medicine.
This control is replaced by the administration of estrogen as a standard
therapy. In addition, the woman in the climacteric always doesn’t
correspond to the ideal of the attractive women for men. She's getting old.
This is the beginning for them of the time in which they should live their
third aspect, namely that of the old wise woman. There are three aspects of
the goddess, find themselves in the seasons and the life of every woman.
The first aspect is the Virgin, the free unattached young woman who takes
what she needs and actively shaped their lives, the young seductive witch.
The second aspect is the mother, the life-giving principle, the woman in the
prime of her life. The third aspect is the wise, healing and death-bringing
gaffer, autumn and winter. This is one time in a woman's life belongs to her
own, the woman after menopause is a potential escapee, deviator, a wise
old woman. Just like the first feminists in the 19th century she must be
cured of this. Women who had experienced the full diagnostic and
therapeutic showdown in herself and have never managed to get rid of it
and the psychological dependence, never become to the wise old women,
but to an empty soaked cartoons of themselves.
The physical dispossession and degradation through the gynecology take
place at another level by psychiatry and psychology. Familiar is the
"mother-is-the-blame-syndrome” in psychoanalysis. For the total castration
of women, it is necessary to discredit their real mothers. At the time of witch
hunts women have denounced each other to make it right to their husbands
and church law. Daughters had to watch as their mothers burned, and little
girls had after they had watched as her mother burned to run several times
barefoot through the burning embers.
In the practices of gynecologists and women in hospitals, physician
assistants and nurses are the executive organs. The pain, the women in
hospitals and clinics will be inflicted, inflicted by women. The doctors (male
and femal) move in the background. Also, this way everything is done to
ensure that women do not join together in sisterhood and trust. Tales show
that the only good mothers are dead mothers. The surviving mothers are
the evil step-mothers (such as Cinderella, Snow White).
For Sepia-women, who get a feel for their own dignity, it is the last to fall
into the hands of traditional practitioners and the total last to fall into the
hands of gynecologists. Among the delusions associated with Sepia "thinks
there are three doctors coming." They go to the healer and homeopath in
order to avoid all that. Will they be referred for diagnostic reasons or due to
a dangerous medical symptom to a traditional doctor, or they refuse and
leave without any word the practitioner. It means a breach of trust for them
or they feel pushed away. It can become very critical if Sepia-woman-
patients refuse because of acute abdominal symptoms, to be examined by
gynecologist. On the other hand, Sepia often knows herself what is good
During my treatment with Sepia I got a painful inflammation of the ovaries,
under which my dentist advised me to go to a gynecologist (medical
Practitioners law). He, to whom I could not believe anyway, wanted to
move me to a gynecological examination. "Ah, you are one of those, who
violates women, and want to deliver me," I thought and kept my
disappointment that he could not or would not help me (?), for me, of
course, how else? (The victim, who does not show her concern, is with the
perpetrator against herself!) I stubbornly refused me, and my dentist
advised me to some resources that I should try in turn until one worked.
Sepia was not among them. None of the funds helped. I was scared, but I
refused to continue to look for a gynecologist. I was obviously not been
years in gynecological treatment. Someday, when I no longer else to say, I
sat down and asked my body what it wants. I had never done before.
Somewhere there was an old woman who said: "SEPIA", and it was easy,
she said it. I took Sepia, and after a few hours, my pain disappeared. After
a week I received an interim bleeding and I went back not to the doctor,
although it was pointed right now in class on the dangers that can lurk
behind this symptom, fibroids, cancer, etc.. I had the feeling that this
bleeding was justified, as if it were a major reason. To me it was good
about it. I felt it was cleansing. Eventually they stopped, and since then I've
felt nothing more of it. Since I was during my Sepia phase due to lack of
confidence never fully open to my homeopath, he could not help me at all. I
would not let him. In this situation it was important for me to make contact
with my body and Sepia archetype and figuring out what was wrong. I have
found in this situation my own autonomy and dignity, that I had to
experience the ovarian inflammation in order to meet the old woman, and
thus gain access to my ability to heal myself.
In the psychological treatment of women follow the example of Freud, who
wrote: "I simply take the rights of the gynecologist - or rather much more
modest than this - claim for myself." (10)
In fact, he was there yet indulgent than the gynecologist, he wanted to
penetrate into the souls of women and uncover their deepest secrets.
Freud is the father of psychology, and his thoughts still haunt many
theories around, not to mention the many Freudians out there actually still.
What Freud has to do with Sepia? As I said, Sepia's disease is caused by
the undignified treatment of female sexuality and the female alvus. The
problem with the sexual abuse is that girls and women are not sufficiently
protected and that the perpetrators are protected by society. What is left for
women, are shame, fear and loathing, feelings of Papa Freud provided a
rationale for therapy, such as the Dora case shows. Dora allegedly suffered
from hysteria, since they had experienced a sexual assault at age 14. An
old man, a friend of the family, was succeeded by Dora to be alone. He
"suddenly pressed the girl to her and pressed a kiss on the lips." For this,
the Freudian: “That was probably the situation to a 14-year-old virgin girl
get a distinct feeling elicit sexual arousal Dora felt but at this moment a
violent disgust, tore herself loose and ran to the man over to the front door."
(10) He denies that Dora's normal reaction of disgust and self-defense,
claiming sexual contact, the word harassment, he did not know would
cause a sexual desire. And more. "... In this scene, the behavior of the 14-
year-old child is already quite full and hysterical. Each person, in which
causes a great source of sexual excitement primarily or exclusively
unpleasurable feelings, I would consider safe hysterical, whether they were
able to produce somatic symptoms or not ... Instead of genital sensation
which would have a healthy girl is certainly not lacking, there is a sensation
with her displeasure, which belongs to the mucous tract of entry into the
digestive tract of disgust. " (10)
Any sexual contact, including involuntary, is an occasion for sexual
excitement, and who does not feel this is sick. We can imagine what
happened to Dora, who was treated in this way. A psychology which is
based on assumptions about such women, the penis envy not to mention,
could women bring nothing good, on the contrary, it led to even deeper
humiliation and alienation.
Unfortunately not only Freud characterized by misogyny but also Jung.
With him it is not so well known. He is openly against strong women who
are ridden by the animus. By its terms animus and anima, he sets out very
clearly how to be women and men. The deviant is treated. And how? "In
many cases the man has the feeling (and so is not entirely wrong) that only
seduction or rape, beatings or even have the necessary powers of
persuasion." (11) "The girls gets one right," I hear men say about
apparently unsatisfied feminists. "To those still missing just a real man, who
tells them how it works." The few women who sympathize today with Jung
know this recommendation. They should consider what the consequences
of a psychology of women are, which is based on this opinion of the animus
of ridden women.
The theme of the Dora case is a big Sepia issue, especially the sepic
feminists continue to set at the point. It is important that women develop
their own sexual pleasure, find their physicality and their sensuality,
regardless of whether they still reflect the male-dominated image of the
woman, who only needs to feel an erect penis to fall into extreme ecstasy.
The Sepia woman-patient and her homeopath
Sepia woman-patients can be often treated only by women and enjoy a
protected space in which no masculinity is admitted, just as they organise
in women's cafés, women's bookstores or women's health centres and
recapture thus rooms in which they can anew define womanhood. For
many women just this cohesion is very salutary among women and the
mutual help. Nevertheless, there are many who seek a male therapist.
There are several possibilities. We have grown up in a world in which all
higher authorities were men: Pediatrician, gynecologist, priest, headmaster,
over and over again teacher, politician, everywhere always only the fathers
who know what is good for us and to us after form how God's father has
formed us from the rib of Adam after "his" image. What lies closer, than to
search for herself also a male therapeutist as a new father who knows what
is good for us and forms us after his image? The extent to which these
women hide under Sepia characters, I do not know.
Another possible reason lies in the perhaps unconscious desire to work on
this very issue between men and women in society. This happens first
representative in the therapeutic relationship. The Sepia woman-patient is
not one of those who embrace the therapist after the first case history,
because such a deep connection was formed and they feel understood
(Puls.). It signals "do not get too close." As a therapist one sense is often at
a respectful distance, which can be expressed in the posture. We will do
everything possible to protect the borders of this woman. With its coldness
and detachment, she hides her vulnerability. It also takes a long time until
she trusts the therapist. Before she opens herself to him, he must show
that he is worthy of that. Of her therapist asks Sepia what they actually
calls on all men, namely, preserving their dignity, protection and promotion
of her inner strength. However, because Sepia is indicated mostly due to
violation of dignity in the area of sexual and pelvic pain, this therapeutic
relationship is not easy. The Sepia problems show for the therapist often
very awkward subjects because he combines with his collective field as a
rapist and women's desecrator or touches his own incest problems. Just in
the gynecological area he tries either to keep out relatively far because he
does not want to step to the patient too near or to reduce the contact to a
very formal level, as a protective mechanism for himself and the woman-
patient. Sepia also does not agree with this rather avoiding contact. She
has an absolute right to her therapist and wishes, actually, close, quite
reverent, but not edging out contact with her mental and gynecological
problems. At least, the therapist stands for all men, and exactly this she
also demands of all men.
What is the deal with the Sepia wants sepic gynecology, this deal is now
even possible or does it being overwhelmed by the therapist? These
questions cannot be answered exhaustively, but I would urge all women
who have something to do with Sepia, let me know their thoughts and
proposals on this topic!
The abdominal symptoms of Sepia
Sepia can suffer from all forms of alvus illnesses and alvus disorders, from
dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, fluorine and vaginitis about myomas,
endometriosis, oothecitis up to womb cancer and neck of the uterus
cancer. Typically the symptom is "feeling as if the womb wants to fall below
out" (3) which by bones cruise is improved. The aetiology "female dignity
damage" explains these symptoms partly, the logic of these symptoms
becomes only clear if one looks at the general contact with the female
alvus in present and past what I have partially already shown. I would like
to come first closer on painful menstruation.
How does society deal with it today with the menstrual period? See
nothing, feel nothing, smell nothing. No one can remember it. Tampons,
bleached and chemically treated, are preferred over binding. Academically
the main focus of the investigation lies with the ovulation, because getting
the child was also the principal job of the woman. In sex education classes,
one learns that the bleeding is a sign that no gestation is given. Nowhere
the slightest suspicion is found that menstruation could also have another
meaning, perhaps not for society but for the development of women. And
how was this in former times? The official history remembers only the fact
that women have their period, are unclean and have to be keep away from
the others (see Genesis, bible). I myself was told that women do not
preserve food by boiling, and certain foods are not allowed to touch when
they have their periods.
This not always was in such a way. When the year had 13 months and one
months counted exactly 28 days after the menstrual cycle of women, the
time of menstruation was a holy state in which women had special skills
and were particularly susceptible for visions and prophecies. The time of
menstruation is exactly like the menopause the above-mentioned third
aspect. The blood was collected and used for rituals or for making healing
substances. But all that is long ago. We now know very little about these
things. Nevertheless, it is in the time to make them to us again accessible.
It may help Sepia. The female cycle is parallel to the moon and the
seasonal cycle. Menstruation is equivalent to the moon, and in the winter of
matriarchal mythology the goddess descents - and therefore every woman
- in the underworld, from which she rises while spring, or during a waxing
moon, full of knowledge and cleaned again to the earth and back to life
(13). This descent into the underworld, we can now interpret as a contact
with the unconscious. It means confrontation with the shadow.
Accepting this dark side of magic means accepting the menstruation. The
problem of Sepia is that she cannot accept the menstruation and
womanhood generally on account of individual and collective dignity
damage in the sexual area.
Men do not bleed. Sure know their religions sacrificial blood of animals and
the blood of Christ in the form of wine. The bloodshed of women is
something uncontrollable, is archaic and mysterious. The male dealing with
it shows the fear of that uncontrollable, as can be illustrated by the example
of the 9 million women murdered because of witchcraft . The Malleus
Maleficarum, the Witches' Hammer says: "You shall not spill the blood of a
witch!" Witches were burned or drowned, never decapitated or
dismembered, although this was common methods of execution. Why?
This taboo is based on the belief that the power of a woman is in her blood.
"All witchcraft happens from carnal desire which is insatiable with women....
Three things are not to be fed, and the fourth one does not speak: It is
enough, this is the mouth of the womb." This shuttle / Redgrove in her book
"Wise wound menstruation": "If the cervix the satanic witch now, it is clear
Note: So many women have been burnt that in wide parts of Germany no more
women were alive. So that the population did not become extinct, women from
other areas had to be "purchased".
that the witches attributed powers are those who from time immemorial to
the natural monthly functions of this devil, be attributed to the menstruating
vagina.“ I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone who wants
to know more about these relationships, which I cannot go into detail.
What shows us the past? The anxiety-causing must be trimmed in a form,
that it is unrecognizable. It has done so well that not only men no longer
recognize it, but we ourselves have lost access to the things, which had
made such a fear to church and men: this magical part of our femininity.
We have learned over the centuries that it has only disadvantages of being
a woman. Our experience ranges from Sati in India, the burning of witches,
on the feet wrapping in China up to now still in terrible conditions in Africa
and several Islamic states practiced clitoridectomy for the purpose of
"cleaning", the "cosmetic beautification" of the female genitals and the
preparation for the marriage. (Note: clitoridectomy is the removal of the
clitoris in uncivilized countries, it happens as a rite of passage for
pubescent girls without anesthesia under catastrophic hygienic conditions.
Some cases the vagina sewn up and separated only for the purpose of
sexual intercourse and during childbirth Today it is carried out partially
already in hospitals. If somewhere in the world is tormented, Amnesty
International intervenes. The mutilation of women has religious reasons
and belongs to the traditions which men may not destroy. That's why the
men keep out there.)
What could be easier than trying to be like those to whom we owe these
disadvantages. What could be better than to deny our femininity or to live
as it is socially desirable to deny that the archaic dark side. Sepia denied
her alvus and remains in the head (see cuttlefish). They don’t want to allow
any feelings, because they were trampled under foot so many times. The
body remembers better than us and rebels. He cannot deny, but strikes
out. For the Sepia woman-patient with menstrual cramps and other alvus
complaints, it is necessary to regain a sense of her alvus and its blood
supply, which not only to face rejection. If the period is considered only as a
necessary evil, which ensures that women at this time does not work, as
the company calls it, the symptoms never go away. We can recommend
them particularly sensitive at this time to be conscious of themselves and
perceive the things that happen in them. What I think is very important is
the actual flow of blood. Tampons can be liberating, especially when you
have to be present in daily life. But the blood might also have the ability to
flow freely, but only in a protected environment, because it brings with it a
special sensitivity. Energy must flow and that blood has a certain energy.
You will notice that it is not constantly flowing, but that it will be pumped out
at regular intervals by rhythmic contractions of the uterus. When these
involuntary uterine contractions are supported by active muscle
contractions, which alone can be very relieving.
Sepia symptoms are relieved by violent movement, particularly through
dance. Sepia women love to dance. They like discos, where it is not too
tight, for example the FAR OUT in Berlin. Against 23 o’clock you can see
them on input. Briefly, bearings taken, whether the way is clear, then she
walks straight to the dance floor. Flirter with dissecting eyes put to flight or
expelled by dancing. After two hours, oblivious to the disco dancing they
leave quietly after they are satisfied that the escape route is clear. Often
they can be found at flamenco dancers, of course, because flamenco is an
incredibly proud and powerful dance, which is a dance expressed battle.
Also Oriental dance can be danced very majestic and Sepia is
recommended because it can be produced by this particular dance, a
sense of her own alvus again. Both are dances where women can learn to
find their way back nicely. Sepia is no longer beautiful, she rejects her
body, for obvious reasons. This rejection is to make deliberate ugly, run
around in bags. With Sepia everything hangs, also the clothes.
Sepia is an important tool for many skin diseases. Sepia people excrete
through the skin things that they had better retire differently, namely, anger
and hurt. In addition, the skin symptoms to ensure that they are even less
attractive, this is a protection for them. By prominent skin diseases can
easily create distance with others. This is especially important in Acne.
Sepia is often helpful for eczema and dyshydrosis. Especially the latter is
common in housewives who deny their deep aversion to housework, but
while slipping ever deeper into Sepia pathology. Just as often, Sepia is
indicated for herpes labialis. It is a distance herpes, which may indicate that
at least now back distance is called for. As with Natrium muriaticum
expresses the herpes disgust and rejection against some invaders. Often
also occurs on genital herpes. Here the reference to sexuality is clear.
Dream: The man wants sex of the woman patient and harassed her in the
evening before falling asleep. He tried it several times and each time she
refuses. To have, finally, rest, it resigns herself to it. The next morning she
has a manifest genital herpes.
Based on the psychological problems can distinguish between two types of
Sepia, of which one extreme and an attenuated form.
First there is the woman whose dignity has been destroyed on the ground,
often by degrading relationships with men who see in them only objects
and have no interest in her personality. Her individuality is not valued, just
as the work she does often as a housewife. She has no job, only the
household and children. She could never develop her own interests. Her
husband is the master of the house, for it must always be available. In
sexuality, he is concerned only about his desire, he does not enter them
on. Because of their socialization, she learned not only to perceive her own
needs and they can therefore not comment or einforden their right to their
own sexuality. She has no sex, just a tool. Sun eventually created
resentment against the man and to sexuality. Sepia has pain during
intercourse, which is not surprising: the body reacts to undignified
treatment. It also has aggravation of all symptoms after sexual intercourse.
Sex is dirty and uncomfortable for her , just a tiresome duty. She has not
learned to deal with their own bodies and to make demands. Patients with
these problems are usually around the age of 40 years. When they come to
menopause, begins what is called stasis Vithoulkas, namely, the
indifference and the slackening of the organs, especially the uterus, which
seems to fall out. Previously these patients were just labeled as frigid.
Coulter calls these patients "washer-woman type." They have a sad, self-
sacrificing life behind them, where they had the function of a doormat.
For these women it is important to get to know her own needs, i.e. if they
have aversion against her husband and the traffic with him to live this
aversion also and to differentiate themselves. This helps them learn to feel
themselves again slowly. They can develop an immense strength and
consequence for which in her marriage of course no place is. Sometimes
they are activated by her feminist daughters. Often they themselves still
begin to engage in emancipation and want to realize themselves. It comes
to the separation and the man gets angry about the women's movement.
In younger women, the picture looks not quite as drastic. Often they are the
daughters of the old Sepia women. They want to live differently than their
mothers. But they are stuck in life; they make them sick without knowing it.
They are outwardly quite independently and emancipation aware, however,
constantly doing things that are contrary to their actual needs, or at least
ignore themselves. Again, there is often a partner and problems with
sexuality. The roles are not as extreme as before, but this woman has
problems with her boyfriend. She is not taken seriously enough. They often
have problems of definition, which are particularly common in the area of
sexuality again. She sleeps with him, although she has not really want. She
sleeps with him to get close and tenderness. If someone is sleeping in
Note: it is interesting to see how a translation programme decides. Whenever a
pronoun stands there for "her" (what is identically with the pronoun for "them" in
German), the programme decides on "them". The possibility, it could concern the
pronoun of a woman, is not planned in the process obviously. - Very strongly
these motivations with partners, creates Sepia pathology. The Eros
disappears. Sepia developed aversion to sex and symptoms result. After
sexual intercourse she is depressed. She is deeply hurt, but does not show
her vulnerability and her needs. Her friend is not the Pasha of before, but
rather the Jungian softy where the chauvinism no longer comes across
open. But his interest is mainly himself. The just said is valid for the Sepia
woman again. She must learn to feel herself and to separate everywhere
where she could expose herself damage.
The third type of Sepia can be described as follows. In the life of this
woman's emancipation and equality play a major role. First there is the
radical feminist, for whom all men are carriers, so that she is together only
with women. She wears austere, almost masculine features and very short
hair. She places on her clothes often only very low value, above all to differ
from the image of a pretty, smart and affectionate female balancing on
stilettos. She has learned that it really just brings disadvantages of being a
woman and therefore rejects from her femininity. It is hard and fighting in
every nook and corner of the rights of women, for a distance from
patriarchy at all levels, from language to social order, against the Church,
for the goddess, and for the rehabilitation of the witches. Their demands
are tough and radical: "Fire and flame for the patriarchy," "women, forming
gangs", "Family Law". She knows the story of the woman and suffering,
sometimes on behalf of their own wounds, in the past of the collective.
Perhaps they had similar problems before with men like the other women,
but it has drawn consequences conscious and chosen a different life form.
She is incredibly dominant, hard and clear. She also has aversion to men
and to have sex with them, but it stands to more, they last a lifetime with
women only for the real thing. Especially at this point she is often very
intolerant to other women. She often has no sympathy for women who like
to live with men, a sexuality met with them and even have children and
want to have with them. Pulsatilla is an abomination for her. If she wants to
have children, she rejects the man from it. She is a single mother of
principle. Her belly is hers, and she fights for abortion, of course for the
right to be able to unasked.
As for our society and the ratio of female to male in the past and present,
these women have seen through a lot. We owe them a lot. They suffer, and
at the same time it unleashes in them a tremendous anger about that, they
have broken the patriarchal rules of the game and not feminized dolls to the
man to favor longer constitute a minority and women constantly all further
humiliated, raped, and all possible types are humiliated. Their intention is
the perpetual struggle and perpetual reproach. As to the past, they see
themselves as victims. They lack the eye for the bigger picture. They have
retreated into women's groups, women's bookstores, women's projects,
women power. Active engagement with men they reject. But to change the
social role of men and provisions, they would have to share with some of
the men on their experiences. In their isolation they often seem very rigid
and dogged. In order to define themselves as women in a first movement, it
was absolutely necessary to isolate themselves first and to seek new ways
without men and things work up. That time is coming to an end. Like Sepia
learns to deal with her concern and to deal, the Women's Movement will
also need to be opened.
When a Sepia woman comes of this caliber in practice and someone uses
the wrong word, she goes. Without a word. She discusses no longer and
there is no chance. It's pretty easy to say the wrong word. At the slightest
semblance of an unfair point to Sepia attitude towards women in general
and the women's movement and related in the Sepia issues makes it
special just tight, maybe she spilled some ink by making some scathing
remarks. Anyway, she's gone and so was a woman patient. If she stays, it
is again often the alvus, which makes her trouble. In the course of
treatment often appear in early childhood experiences of sexual abuse,
usually on by physical or stepfathers. On the way to one's own dignity is an
important step lies in recognizing consciousness of her own undignified
dealing with herself, in recognition of humiliating situations in which she
expose herself. The denial of feelings and vulnerability had a hardening of
the sequence that is resolved only if it admits one's own grief and hurt the
proper place. It is important to deal with her own concern and to let others
share in it.
There is a version of this Sepia phenomenon, in particular, is not as radical.
Her problem is the same, but she is ready and willing to compromise
communication in particular. She may have great similarity with the first
type of Sepia.
There is one final appearance, which has been described almost. His
name might be "Out of anger." These women are in the so-called prime of
life, means between 30 and 45. They do not belong to the feminist scene
and are very successful in business. Often they are female managers and
other executives including. Most of them are single and without children.
Their problem is loneliness. They cannot find a partner. This is illustrated
by an example from real life. A woman learns as described above, always
know men who are fascinated by her and begin a sexual relationship with
her. When they get to know a little better, she is asked about her career
and after she said that she is Director General at a very famous and big
companies, their lovers become impotent overnight. This woman can help,
contact with Sepia energy to their own strength and size to be confident
and easy to put other men who have enough own sovereignty, so that its
potency is independent of the professional status of their partner. Released
Aurum men fulfill these claims.
Even the Sepia-child is characterized by a remarkably dignified
appearance. She is seriously, clearly and very determined in her
statements and claims. The eyes are strikingly large and serious, often
drawn in the forehead wrinkles. Know early on what she wants and
demands the same. Sepia children are absolutely incorruptible. On
promises of rewards, they react with disdain. They always try to impose
their will and usually they do it well. Here, early on thanks also to the
existing adult female dominance. Sepia girls have a strong relationship to
the father. If he is weak, he has no chance against them, if it comes to
authority. They decide, without being destructive, but be as the
Tuberculinum-child or be mischievous as the Phosphorus-child. On the
other hand, they protect him that they put on a lot of sympathy for him and
defend him against the mother when it comes to arguments. If the parents'
relationship is fraught with conflict, they are very biased and often take
sides with the father. When they get older, they start almost always despise
their father because of his weakness. Especially when he deals with his
weaknesses on lycopodical way, it leads to serious conflicts. Sepia sees
through Lycopodium as a child and plucks him with cutting clarity. At least
now the girls take Sepia clearly sides with the mother, who often has to do
a lot with this problem. Sepia has a strong desire for her father, who can
develop and loves her. However, he must be strong enough to sublimate
his incestuous thoughts.
Sepia girls love big horses, and they often dream of riding. Her favorite
characters include Pippi Langstrumpf. They often show early interest in
self-defense. They dress in colorful and like to dance.
The Sepia man
Men are rarely treated constitutionally with Sepia. This is certainly no doubt
that men have no problems with self-esteem, but probably has more to do
with the fact that it does not belong to the traditional image of men to have
problems with self-esteem. So are more men who do not comply with this
classic men's image, which can help Sepia, for example, house-husbands
who suffer from the fact that their work is not appreciated. Often it is rather
soft, sensitive men who cannot distance themselves properly. Again, the
issues of sexual abuse play a large role. With the men who have
experienced rapes what seems against the general idea not only in the
prison or with men who were abused as small boys by her mother’s
sexually sepia is announced in all probability, also with injuring genital
experiences with women.There are men who go for these reasons, in
extreme cases, no more sexual relationships and do not allow physical
contact with women. They do not want to be touched, even hugs are
friendly to them too much.
Often they are well maintained and also vane. They are sensitive and
understanding and have many good female friends, to whom they
entertained a purely platonic relationship. Especially in appearance they
contradict the female Sepia picture completely. Men who can help Sepia
look, often as victims of female treachery and decline all responsibility.
When women become like men, however, elude them sexually, it is in men
as well. They accept some female characteristics and seek contact with
women, but cling from any sexuality. None of them gets erotic. The reason
is fear of further injury. Any kind of physicality they go out of the way,
because the line between eroticism and friendship is so difficult to draw.
Sepia and Classical Homeopathy
Women and Homeopathy is a big Sepia I sue. Just like everything else was
and is much misogynistic in homeopathy. There are only fathers and sons
of homeopathy. Daughters were not admitted. Even Melany D'Herveilly, the
2nd Hahnemann's wife, from whom he himself has said that she was his
best student, was ostracized by his direct male descendants, and fought.
She died in poverty and loneliness. In Melanie's dignity after the death of
Hahnemann was trampled violently, no wonder, was it only his wife and
arrogated to herself even to engage in homeopathy. If you follow the
traditional misogyny, it is no surprise that in a book by Dorcsi 1986 Melanie
as "pretty, superficial (and) eccentric" describes (14). Even if he calls her
two sentences later than Hahnemann receptive schoolgirl, one must ask
himself, how a woman, who distinguishes herself by the qualities called by
Dorcsi, to a man like Hahnemann, whom certainly also Dorcsi reveres, so
much could mean.
Patriarchal thinking is reflected, of course, not only in the history of
homeopathy, but also in the repertory and in the remedy teachings.
Therefore I will bring a sepic example. The symptom "is no longer
interested in their next household duties" (Mezger) is safe at any known.
Striking is the term "obligations". Who determines what the duties of the
wife are? It is a mockery, if it is expected that women have even enjoy it, it
lacks the joy of their imposed duty, then that is pathological and women
must be treated. Again, the old behavior patterns can be recognized:
women who are not normal, that do not fit the norm are sick, especially
where it comes to socially determined image of man and woman.
The archetype of Sepia
The archetype of Sepia is the queen. Sepia women have a fear and radiate
pride and dignity. They were taking over by itself a devoted, sometimes
even submissive posture. They radiate from a distance, which has been
preserved. At the smallest distance is exceeded they get up and go or
spray ink, often without realizing that the other knows why.
Sepia is the color the purple of the women's movement. Purple is made up
of red and blue. Red stands for Eros and blue for wisdom.
A book that meets one for the study of Sepia, is "The Mists of Avalon" by
Marion Zimmer Bradley. The book deals with the Arthurian legend and the
historical context from a feminist perspective. It's about the shift from
matriarchy to patriarchy, to high priestesses of the Goddess and God to the
new father and his male deputy. When dealing with the problem of
collective Sepia bound to come across these issues. And who does
research after the great sepia women in the history of woman, bumps with
stupefying security into the history of the degradation of the woman.
The Cretan double ax is a symbol of radical feminism. It symbolizes the
moon in its three stages, and thus the three aspects of the Goddess. The
double ax is the symbol of the highest dignitary in Minoan Crete. Today it
stands for powerful and radical break old structures, but also for anger and
Together with Lachesis Sepia is one of the remedies which are announced
with unresolved past life memories, mostly it's about witches. Differential
diagnosis, it is about oppression in Lachesis, while Sepia is still suffering
under the humiliation that has taken place.
Sepia women in this age, the task of the contact "behind the mists" to
restore, means the power of the goddess up again and save the sinking
man's world, that is, but also to seek contact with the old world into us and
descend into the underworld . This can happen only when Eros and religion
are again united in unconditional YES to life and womanhood! Women who
can tackle this task are those who cannot hate on one side and the
destructive rivalry to man have been overcome and understand how men
have become victims of their own, by escaped in the last 6000 years the
leadership of women and things have turned.
A man for Sepia or the search of the King
Often Sepia women have relationships with women. If they have
relationships with men, it is not easy for them to find the "right man". If the
man is too weak, it makes it all. Is he a lycopodian softy, who follows the
emancipation wearing purple overalls, to gain her favor, she ignores him. If
she is still unresolved, she ofte has Lycopodium men, who’s deal with her
is not dignified, but they try to cut them down in all areas, in partnership , in
partner roles, and especially in sexuality. For the Lycopodium man the
Sepia woman is most liked, who has never taken Sepia. This relationship
between diseased Lycopodium and diseased Sepia is the age-old conflict
between man and woman, which has entail the oppression of women and
the current state of the world.
The man, with whom a redeemed Sepia woman can have a fulfilling
relationship, must be designed differently. Comment from a woman patient:
"Men need to smell like donkeys!" Another woman patient, who had long
lived with women, met after prolonged Sepia therapy a tango dancer and
loved him. When asked how they would be counted as one such "manly"
man, she replied: "He’s just right!"
He must almost be a hero, a man who has so much dignity and strength
that he did not need, to keep a woman small, stifling her spirituality,
sexuality and freedom. He does not do so because he underestimated her
strength and she is not afraid. So a man for Sepia must be a king, a king
for the queen.
The redemption of Sepia
The Sepia woman must find her dignity. For this she must first recognize
that she has a right to dignity and that her own dignity is devastated. The
consciousness is often absent for own dignity, it is destroyed and must be
only rebuilt again. Then it is important to realize that the sensible approach
would be to herself the condition for others to deal gracefully with the
individual. The next step is to recognize that the other one's can dignity
only hurt if you allow it. Only if you even keep your dignity and not
humiliated by yourself, it is protected from degradation by the other. Then
she can understand also, that she need not longer fight for her dignity.
Because dignity is part of herself.
For the sepia feminist it is important to wage no more deputy's war, but to
work off her own problems, on behalf for those of the group. Moreover, an
important step lies for her in recognizing that female freeing is more than
equal rights, and that it is not done as to become as the men.
The victim becomes the perpetrator against itself if it does not show its
concern. In this sentence the first step is to cure the patient woman Sepia.
She must learn to admit her violation, without trying to beat back at the
same level and then retire with her own hurt, which can lead to new
injuries. Stopping at this level is to declare herself as eternal victim and to
put the blame on the physical and emotional rapists.
At the interpersonal level, the task is to find the closeness and distance in
which you feel comfortable that you yourself determined. For Sepia this
level is very sensitive. The smallest distance excess can have bad results.
Nevertheless, condition in addition is own perception: recognize that one is
about to do something that one wants to do not really. If one does it,
nevertheless, new dignity damage originates from the disregard of own
My dream of salvation:
After Sepia XM I dreamed the following:
I'm awake in the morning and a child is crying in my arms. I comforted. It is
my child, but at the same time a man, namely Andreas whose daughter
was buried a few days ago and mourns for her. I am his mother.
For me, this dream the end of hostility. Because of my loving feeling in this
dream I could not ask Andrew to deliberate misogyny more. Also, I got in
contact with another aspect of my femininity, that femininity beyond anger
