Soul on the path of healing
At Suzana Đokić’s homeopathic practice
Homeopathy represents much more than treating symptoms and conditions on a physical level. It can serve as a tool for people to gain deeper insight into their emotions, internal being and their existence. These insights help a person make positive changes. Those changes lead us to a healthier and more fulfilled life.
In their work homeopaths hear quite a few life stories. Even though all of us today deal with more or less the same issues, each life story and each reaction to a problem is unique. The more capable a homeopath is to perceive internal conflicts which govern patient’s life and understand the nature of their reactions, the more successful they will be. It is very important that the homeopath listens to the patient carefully, show compassion and allow them to share their most intimate feelings and experiences, if they want to. The story itself, the emotional confrontation and outing thereof can have immense power, especially when it comes to repressed emotions and barriers which caused issues in the first place. It often happens that people realize that they feel something, they have emotions they weren’t aware of, or that were deeply repressed, and they expose them for the first time in homeopathic consultation or therapy. Then they start thinking about their lives, events, emotions, as well as their own reactions in a new way and from a different perspective.
Awakening repressed emotions can lead to emotional discharge or some sort of catharsis, remove emotional and energetic barriers enough to initiate healing process. Many of my patients stated that they had both talked and thought about certain things for the first time while consulting with me. Many left surprised by what they said or realized about themselves.
Awakening repressed emotions
It is very important to assess patients’ ability to bring certain repressed emotions to life in a specific moment, and lead them further down the path of homeopathic treatment, and provide support from them.
In a homeopathic practice not only do we meet people who need help to cure a purely physical condition or a problem? We also work with individuals who are going through an emotional crisis because they have lost someone close. Sometimes it is about death, sometimes about finding it difficult to deal with divorce or parting ways with someone we wanted to spend our lives with.
Consolation and understanding
People who got stuck somewhere along the road or people who don’t know how to move forward or what they want from life should ask for help. They carry a heavy cross of guilt, pain, grief or fear. They will ask a homeopath not just for medicine but also for some kind of consolation and understanding, often in a covert manner. This is why it is very important to have compassion for patients and provide support so that they could overcome their problem faster and more easily to move on with their lives. In a homeopathic practice we can also meet those somewhat curious and eager to learn, those who wish to grow, develop and understand themselves better and for whom homeopathy is an extraordinary tool which can contribute to spiritual growth, simply because it goes so deep into all levels of human existence removing obstacles and barriers on its way. This is why all homeopaths are also obliged to work on their personality, develop and grow as human beings and learn pretty much constantly. This is the only way for them to understand the person in front of them, and find out what that person actually needs, and what that person is secretly expecting of them. A good homeopath is the one who knows how to listen without any prejudice, the one who is capable of interpreting non-verbal signals and gestures of each patient. Only a homeopath who can understand the complete state of the person in front of them, often expressed not only through their physical symptoms, but also their stories, non-verbal signals, behavior and perception of the world, will be capable of helping patients make progress in their physical, emotional and mental health and spiritual growth.
