Each person’s language is different. Each person describes their suffering in their own unique way.
The language can be verbal and non-verbal. Verbal language is specific words used, metaphors, descriptions of images, and stories. Non-verbal language is hand gestures, sounds made, facial expressions, and body movements. All, the verbal and the non-verbal, are expressive of the person. It is our own unique language. And we are speaking it all the time, and not really knowing that we are doing so.
All language, verbal and non-verbal, is what the homeopath is listening to, is watching, and is observing. Putting it all together to make the picture of the person. It is a whole picture – Selecting a homeopathic remedy that is similar to this picture. The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like or the Law of Similars.
Homeopathy is wonderful for animals, babies, and non-verbal people, such as children and adults who don’t speak. Language is expressed not only through speech.
A patient of mine was talking about herself, about what bothers her. After talking for awhile, certain words came up, and then an image with these words, and then there was a gesture. The arm circled around her body, as she was saying the words “surrounding me, all around me, and enclosed”. And the gesture was just there; it just came. The image she said was “like a shell, a wall, something hard. And it is all around”. She continued, “I can’t be in for long, and I can’t be out for long”. She talked about being protected, enclosed, and another hand gesture started moving up and down in front of her. It is as if the hand gestures were drawing the image.
The hand gestures just come. They aren’t thought out; they are spontaneous. And they can come often. When the homeopath sees a particular gesture recurring often, she may ask or say, “What is that? Do this gesture again. What comes when you do the gesture?” And then the person will talk more.
How do you express what is bothering you? You may not be aware of your language. The homeopath will hear and see it, and this will guide her to a selecting a homeopathic remedy that will stimulate your own healing.
