HOW DID FLOATING FEEL? I felt like I was testing myself, see how far I can go, kind of when you go snowboarding and then you pick up speed. More excited than anything.
SLEEP? Good. I went through a phase where I didn’t want to be bothered with people, needed to keep my energy in my little bubble. I called it my little cocoon, I told people I was cocooning. I didn’t feel like making , wanted to resolve certain things but then I didn’t want to resolve it. In times of transitions sometimes you need other people. I felt like I didn’t want it – no outside influences. I feel ok with people now. I have calmed down a lot
I feel so adult! I am shedding all these things. My 20s was a wild ride. I was looking at old pictures, and I didn’t know who I was then. Now I am more rooted, more whole, not easily affected by other people and things. I am in a period of being patient. I have to wait for the things that I am manifesting. It is like a leap of faith. I know I am the only one getting in my own way.

M: My dreams have been clouded. I’ve been grieving over the loss of my car but I think I cleared that up. It feels as if a cloud has cleared out of my chest.
Her periods have been fine, with no bloating or cramping and she is now working again part-time. She’s also working to resolve some long-standing personal finance issues.
She says that she has taken up a combination of yoga and tango dancing!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT THIS ACTIVITY? You get to center and connect with another person. You can see all the people connecting and working with each other. Being that close and intimate with a total stranger can be off-putting at first, but you get used to it.
Maria has been taking her remedy at the beginning of each month. She is working more and socializing more. She is totally coherent in conversation now. It’s clear that going to the higher potency was the right choice for her. The interesting thing about the Sensation System is that when the patient clearly speaks from the source, the remedy is quite obvious and we can have real confidence in prescribing. Susan explained that Maria’s state had been so deep and the remedy was so clear that we should have started out with a 10m (live and learn!). Instead, when she seemed to change but not get significantly better, we got insecure about the remedy selection and changed the remedy slightly. This was a mistake that we have all learned from. Fortunately, no harm was done and Maria has experienced considerable personal growth and healing since the 10m.
We expect her to continue to do well on this remedy. Cases like this with deep mental pathology require time and patience on the part of the homeopaths and the patient as well. We are all grateful that Maria had the ability to stick with homeopathy until the healing set in. Maria will remain a clinic patient for years to come.
