In the first “Shrek” film, the characters of Donkey and Shrek have a discussion about Ogres having layers, like onions and cakes. I just love this – because as much as you may not like, there may be an Ogre in us all! Not because we’re big and green or even smelly, but because we have SO many layers. …
Working with clients in my practice I have seen the concept of layers many times. During a consultation I look at the physical, mental and emotional health of my client. So depending on how the client feels at this given time, in some cases I might just scratch the surface (the outside layer) in others we may delve deep to the core. Either way we may still get positive change and the client may see this in a reduction of symptoms, positive mood and general wellbeing.
Where do these layers comes from you might ask? Well it is my understanding that these layers could well start as early as conception. Much depends on the health and wellbeing of the mother, her environment while pregnant, her physical, emotional and mental health and so much more. Once we are born we start to obtain even more of these layers, these can come about as a result of unresolved life events, challenges, hurts etc. E.g. If there is a death of a family member early in life and that person is no longer discussed, the whole experience gets brushed under the carpet as it were, then this may well be a trauma that hasn’t been processed and worked through. For some layers may well be formed as a result of bullying in school, being abused, not being heard – there are so many sources to these traumas that can lead to another “layer”.
It’s never too late to work through these layers – using Homeopathy you are providing the body with natural remedies to work at regaining balance in the body. I see in practice that it’s not only the remedy that works at regaining balance but another big part of the healing process is the conversation that takes place during a consultation. The conversation is the unravelling of many life events and observing what your triggers are, learning how to be an observer in your own body. An initial consultation will usually take 1hr 15min and during this time we are delving into your mental, emotional and physical health and working at obtaining a sequence of events. Clients leave feeling a huge weight has been lifted, they have been heard, have time to be with their thoughts and have someone (me – the homeopath) assist them in unravelling these thoughts. They also have the added bonus of a homeopathic remedy to bring about further healing.
So without doubt we all have layers, the question is are we ready to investigate them and get to the core, the heart of you living your real true self and shedding the past which may be holding you back.
