Like a safe cracker, we put our ear to the door and listen carefully to the tumblers until all falls into place.  In a homeopathic consultation, I have often heard the language of those thoughts being played out through anxiety, disturbed sleep or chronic pain.  Thoughts that are not rightly integrated are relegated to the unconscious.  They are not allowed to be present in daily consciousness.  “Perish the thought!”

Persistent or tormenting thoughts and chronic pain of unknown etiology are the mind’s way of telling you that they need to communicate something to you.  Something unresolved, unfinished, not integrated. 

Heartbreaks are one example of painful events that cause actual pathology such as hypertension and palpitations.  Literature and lore is replete with stories of people who have died of a broken heart.

There are more heart attacks in the winter months because holidays bring stressful memories of regret, anger, resentment, loneliness, failure, and abandonment to the conscious mind.

Homeopathic remedies address the person who is suffering.  The one suffering from loss or abandonment, the ending of a relationship, but cannot express it or cry about it may need Natrum Muriaticum.  Ignatia Amara is a remedy for grief, long held, that bubbles to the surface with a simple incident… like burning the turkey.
