VENUS PROVING

 

The Homeopathic Proving of
"Venus Stella Errans"

 

"The Light at the End of the Tunnel"

Themes and Repertory

Below is an ongoing process of translating the mental symptoms of the provers into repertory language and a description of themes that appear. Between the two should hopefully lie a general appreciation of the remedy.

I'm currently (July '04) over half way through completing a first draft of repertory additions which will be added here in the coming few weeks. The themes of the remedy I wrote earlier which are below are relevent but I'm beginning to see something that reflects the nature of the planet - ie the apparent calm and serene 'cloud' cover with the most incredible turmoil on the surface. More on this in the coming months.

This new perspective is interesting in that the remedy could be related to several factors. These are in order of what I considered possible before looking at the symptoms from the provers. As said before, my main interest was would this remedy produce any reaction in provers at all.

  1. Impurities in the original substance eg from the eye piece of the telescope, dust in the room where it was triturated.
  2. The physical process of making it - ie the telescope and focused light from the distance.
  3. My imagination and projections.
  4. Astrological effects.
  5. The myth of Venus.
  6. The planet itself.

The latter, I hadn't seriously considered as possible until recently reviewing the symptoms. Anyway, that's a little update, back to what I wrote some time ago......

 

Themes

"The Light at the End of the Tunnel" is what a prover said after going through several days of depression culminating in an evening when they felt "what is the point of it all" and then began to feel they had began to improve slightly. I've been looking for some phrase or fundamental theme to sum up the essence of this remedy, and I'm fairly confident this is part way there.

The essence of a remedy is not only described by the substance but also by the process of the proving. That can include experiences leading up to the making of the remedy or the physical nature of obtaining the substance. The former I'll relate at some future date but the latter in this case is quite straightforward - it was made by focusing a powerful telescope on venus with the sugar crystals placed on the eyepiece. So, whether or not there is anything relating to the planet, there was a point of light far away brought closer by means of a tube and lenses (the main one was a reflecting lens). Something possibly significant is that the point of light was far enough away to have a significant time delay ie what was captured was something slightly back in time.

This is a hypothesis based upon some experience, but it seems that the remedy has an ability to bring into focus things from the past.

Symtoms that were experienced by many of the provers can be split into two polarities including:

The Tunnel

The Light
tiredness
heaviness
pains
tension
cramping
troubled
vulnerable
energised
lightness
relaxation
clarity
assertive
focused
reconnecting

 

Another aspect is the tendency of provers to revisit old feelings, places and people from their past and, in one of the cases I've successfully used the remedy in, previously unknown siblings from the other side of the world. This revisiting has often been difficult but has subsequently brought relief, empowerment and connectedness. Linking this to the substance of the remedy, there can be seen the telescope connecting the person with aspects of them previously too distant in time and space to relate to. Venus itself is often said to be the sister planet to earth - distant connections.

One patient who was experiencing confusion, unclarity, and spaciness was helped by being able to reconnect to a past event in their childhood - as it happens, one in which they felt very isolated.. Another in a similar state found they were able to focus on what needed to be done initially accompanied by having almost too much energy ("a bit like after having too much coffee") and after a week or so when this manic state subsided they reported feeling the remedy had initiated them getting on with life again and felt clearheaded.

I'm also exploring the link with this theme to near death experiences. In terms of homeopathy this is particularly interesting because of the relationship there, and in near death experiences, with quantum physics, sometimes known as field theory.

 

Repertory

These are in process, and in many cases don't fit the repertory yet due to me still trying to gather the information in its pure sense before opting for the final rubrics. You'll most likely be able to see my masterly grip on the repertory language :-/

The list is by prover, no emphasis yet, and (CS) means cured symptom, maybe only for a few days... not sure with some of those (CS)'s which way they need to be interpreted yet. Just the mental symptoms here so far.

You can click on the provers name to see their full symptoms - links not currently available will be in the near future.
