Creating Waves of Awareness

A few comparisons to help locate the Birds on the Mappa Mundi.

According to Shore the bird mind "organises itself around concepts which allow a dynamic shifting of emphasis". Its a kind of sensitivity. Every updraft or downdraft changes the whole situation from moment to moment. It sounds a bit like Pulsatilla (WIND flower!), where the significance of events or feelings can easily change and so she changes her opinion every moment. Pulsatilla's current 'fad' is the only one that has any real validity. Like some of the drug remedies she lives in the NOW! Contrast this with the people who understand a subject and then form an opinion that can never be changed, esp, the Ferrum Series.

The birds, especially eagles can be very impartial, just witnessing, without emotional prejudice. It's a kind of emotional detachment that allows the truth to be seen. Her path from thermal to thermal is clear. Her reverie is awesome - timeless and without boundaries. The Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) also has an interesting clairvoyant aspect to her inner psychic world - a beautiful retreat - and sometimes she uses Cannabis to enhance her experience.

When you start feeding birds in the garden they soon come to expect a morsel. They know - there's a kind of empathy, but there's no emotion, like the unprejudiced observer, as in Stage 16 (e.g. Ytterbium) and Stage 17 (e.g. Lutetuim). This knowing has been linked with a the autonomous spirituality of the Lanthanide series as a whole. Like the Lanths, they are free spirits. (See also: Actinides - the hidden camera by M. Suijs).

This is well observed in the Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus). The main idea is that Owl is a wise old soul who loves to teach.

To sum up it seems like the bird mind has a wisdom reflecting sensitivity, clarity and empathy, rather than love or attachment. The doctrine of non-attachment taken a stage too far for most of us to be comfortable with.

Bird brain? Ounce for ounce birds have significantly more neurons in their brains than mammals or primates

  • The macaw has a brain the size of an unshelled walnut, while the macaque monkey has a brain about the size of a lemon. Nevertheless, the macaw has more neurons in its forebrain -- the portion of the brain associated with intelligent behavior -- than the macaque.

    That is one of the surprising results of the first study to systematically measure the number of neurons in the brains of more than two dozen species of birds ranging in size from the tiny zebra finch to the six-foot-tall emu, which found that they consistently have more neurons packed into their small brains than are stuffed into mammalian or even primate brains of the same mass.

    The study results were published online in a paper titled "Birds have primate-like numbers of neurons in the forebrain" in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences


Birds Seeking Freedom

Peter Fraser

This book offers a clear differentiation between the different bird species. If bird remedies are relatively well known, the differences between the species have been difficult to establish. The book is well organised, following the scientific classification of order, family, genus, and species, which makes it easy to work with. Individual remedies are examined, drawing out their individual important aspects, enabling us to differentiate between the subtle differences of each bird remedy. In total, forty remedies are explored, from the familiar Falco peregrinus to the less known Pharomachrus mocinno. One down side to this otherwise interesting book is the lack of accompanying cases, which would have been welcome to complement the remedy pictures. 
"Peter brings a fine focus that penetrates the outer veils to reveal the simpler and truer nature of things. This leads to brevity of expression as well as concentration of the material: an aqua vita from which we may sip and understand. The information given is really useful in practice, helping me to recognise similima. I have been eagerly awaiting this book." Misha Norland

The publisher: Seeking the Freedom of the Sky: The Bird Remedies have rapidly become a significant part of practice. The general picture of the Bird Remedy may be relatively clear but the differences between the different species can be subtle and hard to pin down precisely. This book brings together information on forty different remedies, much of it not readily available elsewhere. It gives a general outline of the features important to birds and how these features are expressed in the Bird Remedies. It then looks at the individual remedies and details the way that particular issues are important in one remedy and less so in others. It also looks at the emerging relationships between bird families and such things as the relationship between predator and prey.

The remedies that move between the Realms of Sea, Earth, Sky and Underworld have a particular dynamic relationship to that transformation. Understanding this dynamic helps to understand the group as a whole and to find the subtle difference between its members.

Groups include the Insects, the Birds, the Spiders, the Snakes, the Lacs, the Drugs and the Trees. "Peter's series of books has been a revelation. The discrimination between' insects and birds is so succinct it is hard to believe it is so true. I can think of no homceopathic books available which give so much wisdom for such a small cost! They have inspired my practice, and benefited my patients." Geoff Johnson "This book is remarkably informative, not only in the description of the different Insect remedies but more importantly in delineating how the traits of the insect are expressed in human pathology. The information is practical and brings alive the Insect remedies in a way that is exciting and inspiring." — Janet Snowdon

Seeing as I am quoted here in the bird context, I would like to add a comment which is that the mode of functioning of the mind as quoted is not by any means unique to the bird realm. I view it as a characteristic of animal mind and only secondarily of bird as a subset of animal. Its useful in bird cases is that many of the birds do not show strong animal characteristics and this subtle level of analysis relating to the form of function of the thought process can help place the case in the correct category and thus be of great assistance in the final decision around the choice of remedy.

I can be quite pedantic when it comes to logic but I'll certainly allow that, Kaviraj. Life looks linear on a diagram but nature is subtle in ways we can only imagine - and enjoy :)

Hi Stephany,

that is precisely what i mean. That is darwinist thinking. Deconstruct form.
That everything has similarities in botany and zoology is a question of design. The idea that fins became legs and finally ended up walking upright presupposes a linear development. Anyone studying nature knows that nature works cyclical and not linear. From that fact alone we can dismiss all attempts at linear development, because that is not how nature works.
Nature is understood by the study of living things. In order to undertsand life, one must not investigate corpses. Deconstruction and dissection are no means to understand life and its variety. I remember how dissecting corpses at the University lab was fascinating, but it did not teach me anything about life.
If one wants to understand the book of nature, one must walk its pages. Go out in nature and see how she does everything and what she teaches about relations between species and then a proper understanding will automatically follow. Deconstruction and comparative anatomy will not have the same result.

In Botanic, Zoologic and Anatomical texts we deconstruct form. Starting with the basic body plan of the Annelids (bilateral symmetry, plus a ceolem) which is found in every species. The notochchord was the next interesting development. Then you get the cartelagenous fish, then the bony fish, fins become legs and the "thing" crawls out of the sea and eventually stands upright. In Embrology ontonony recapituales phylogengy.

As a homoeopath i did not expect any. It does not surprise me at all either.
I find the supposed connection between birds and reptiles convoluted darwinist claptrap - nothing personal, though. Darwinists come up with all sorts of unrelated phenomena, without understanding that for survival in a habitat any species must already be adapted to it - completely and totally - to enable that survival. So darwinism is to me a speculation not based on facts. Darwinism gives me a lot to laugh about.

The connection between snakes and birds is even more farfetched - snakes do not even have limbs, let alone be able to fly.
In that respect you could find a closer connection with the boomslang, which is able to glide, together with some other tree-living species and some lizards. There you could possibly find remedy relations and similar themes.

Lachesis i have encountered in Brazil - it is a mean piece of snake and aggressive to boot. I have yet to see a docu by a naturalist who handles them. They grab all sorts of snakes, but leave the surucucu wisely alone. Lachesis is not for nothing called the "bush master".
Which bird can claim to have a similar epithet? I know of none.

What i also find curious is that the predators should have the feeling of being persued - rather i would expect the opposite. I can understand it in snakes - eagles and other raptors hunt them for food. How many of the themes are based on accurate observation? How many of them exist only in the minds of the observer?

At times i have my doubts about some of the claims made, ever since Sankaran presented the Sensation method. He studied at least the remedies involved, such as the Solanaceae. After him, it seems many simply jumped his bandwagon without any actual understanding, presenting supposed themes.

I do not doubt everything and again it is nothing personal, so don't get me wrong please. I just cannot believe everything presented, because it does not follow any indications of similarity between the species. Many of the supposed themes do not even have a habitat in common.
They are presented by people who do not live in nature, have never accurately observed anything in nature and are thus without any clue about interrelationships.

Snakes have things in common. So do birds. They are after all belonging in the same Order or Kingdom. But the imagined connection between birds and reptiles is both convoluted and farfetched. I think that as a zoologist you will do better if you completely forget everything the darwinists have made you believe. I am not telling you what to think, but suggest that a theoretical construct that is not based in and on natural phenomena will confuse us into thinking there are connections when the reality shows there cannot be any.

Self-Reflection: As a Zoologist I was expecting to find some intriguing links from the bird remedies back to the snakes, but there don't seem to be many connections. Lacheis has sensations of floating or flying, a delusion of being lighter than air, delusions of being persued, can't abide captivity, and like some birds has visionary dreams (and hears voices).

That's about it - and some of these are common to all predators. The common rubrics appear to be useful in so far as they indicate which Kingdom to consider.

Yes, he is right. The situation is the direct environment i which we live and this will swing in the same vibration pattern. What is related seeks each other. My little anecdote about the man and the nettles illustrates this prefectly.

In this way, everything is related and corresponds to the case you may have in front of you.
Comment by Stephanie Nile on September 11, 2009 at 4:28am
Another aspect of our relationship to the outside world was described by Dr. Sankaran as "Situational". The persons situation reflects aspect of their inner state - but it takes some sifting and sorting to get the right perspective on its bearing on the case.
Comment by Vaikunthanath das Kaviraj. on September 8, 2009 at 11:21am
Ah, if only we all could listen to Mother Nature's lectures with the same open ears. That requires some humility - that I do not know and need to be taught. I learn something new every day.
I once stood in court and told the judge i was learning from Mother Nature.
The opposing party wished to know what i got from that "incestuous relationship". They tried to be funny, you see.
My answer was that i got more from a loving relationship than they would ever get from Her rape. That silenced them quick-smart.

The point is that in any given case the Law of Similars stands supreme. Everything can be understood to follow that Law. Hence everything can be understood in terms of the Law. All it requires from us is to strictly adhere to it and then you make but very few mistakes. The point cannot but be validated, because it follows strictly the Law. Nice how nature always shows what is right.

Vaikunthanath, they came ... I dont have much info on Evening Primrose (Spp. Oenothera Fam. Oangraceae. This Order, the Myrtales seem to be either stimulated and energised ... or feel like giving up and being on their own.

I think your point stands validated :)
