Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
I've been taking a moment from case work this evening to reflect on how lucky I am.
I get to work with people on a daily basis (which I realised at 17 I really wanted to do, not the veterinary route that I had been planning right up to filling in my UCAS form (from age 7, via lots of work experience at vets and owning a horse and a dog)). I get to be surprised by people. On a daily basis. Whether that be by sky diving grannies, people recovering from illnesses, people able to reduce (with the guidance of their prescribing GP) medications or whatever else. I love that.
I get to explore the world of nature, where many of our remedies come from. This week I've been researching gemstones and insects for their use in cases and with clients I'm seeing. I get to read art - Tennyson this evening, relating to the damselfly. I get given art - a beautiful poem from a client recently.
I delve into the science of the workings of the body - my background in Psychology and Neuroscience at a BSc level helps me here often - and into the mind. I research, investigate and give my best. I read - constantly - and have a huge pile of books 'to read'. My boyfriend jokes that if I go missing I'll be buried underneath the books falling from my bedside table of 'urgently read asap books'.
I look around the case, what supporting things would make a difference - if diet may be a factor we may discuss this, or exercise, or other areas. I recommend books, other lifestyle factors or professionals that the client may wish to investigate further. I get to meet other professionals - most recently in the conference in Belfast with over 160 homeopaths - a mixture of professional and medical homeopaths, and learn more about what they're doing, what homeopathy has the ability to help us all do.
So tonight, off back to work now on cases and from supervision sessions from the day. I am grateful.
I'm a Homeopath working in the Skipton (North Yorkshire) area. I am also able to offer food intolerance testing using Kinesiology and advice around diet and lifestyle.
