  • Lanthanum metallicum cases

    There are lots of little lights, light, lots of light, little white, clear white place where I can't tell if I am coming or going, a place where I just think with a higher mind. It's like something out of the twilight zone. A general, a circus clown, and a refined lady, trapped in a prison of sorts. They thought they might be in h-e-l-l. They felt trapped. They sat there trying to think of where they were. It was like a round cylinder.

    You keep walking around, you can't tell if you are coming or going, you want to think, but your mind is caught in a trap and endless loop. Too many questions, very few answers. You are not even certain of how you got there. I close my eyes. I am in a different world, a parallel world just like this one, but things are slightly different, you never know exactly which world you are in.

    It is so similar. I had a dream of being in Roswell, New Mexico; I had a rocket that went astray and it went into Area 51. I went in to retrieve my rocket when suddenly I was surrounded by bright lights; the night sky became bright as day; I grabbed my rocket, I then hid in an empty create and watched an amazing scene, aliens landing. It was like the Twilight Zone. Lots of lights. Lights have something to do with incarnation, fully being embodied. The question is in which world? The parallel worlds go on and on. It's so amazing. You are an alien in most of those worlds. An alien. You are powerful in all of them. I am 16-years old here, but 4-years old in a parallel world, and so on. You are 26-years old in one of those worlds. But you are the oldest one of us all. The Twilight Zone is unstable and somewhat dangerous...

    Most of the time I feel safe in school now. Before school was like a prison.

    Songs referenced during the proving.

    This proving started out... inauspiciously.  Unlike other provings, we allowed the provers to determine their own start dates.  We gave them a lot more freedom to behave independently.  Provers and supervisors worked well together for most part, keeping any disagreements to themselves. Provers were resistant to recording things in their journals and the supervisors often had to record things for them. Provers often experienced an absence of symptoms, however when one of the master provers would talk to them and touch upon an area, they would open up and the substance would come flowing out with rich beautiful imagery. This is likely to be the same experience that an homeopath would experience when taking a case of someone who needs Lanthanum. The debriefing meeting was almost entirely a discussion of mental symptoms even though physical symptoms were recorded. As a master prover, I often forgot that we were doing a proving at all. I forgot to send reminder emails for provers to send journals in and when I would remember, I would just think, “oh well... I suppose it doesn’t really matter in long run.”  Both of the Master Provers experienced significant healing during the two provings. 

    Many people were driven to do things they had thought of doing but had never had energy to act before (curative).
