We, all life choose by our intent what we give
of ourselve to create collectively
what life is on this planet.
This is the legacy that we provide for tomorrow.
Welcome again to the Olive Homoeopathic Newsletter. This being the 6th Edition which will conclude the first year of newsletters.
This is also the beginning of the School Year. New beginnings for many children in new classrooms, with new teachers, classmates and new challenges with new scholastic work and possibly a new form of transport to school. For some a new beginning is a scary thing, for these children they may become anxious, withdrawn, worried stubborn, teary, shy, even angry or fussy and clingy. These symptoms may be new to the parent or they may be a step up from how their child is normally. To us as adults it may appear exaggerated behaviour, especially if we didn't find the years beginning at school a challenge for us. Positive reinforcement that the child will do just fine ( most do) and that the challenges are exciting can help them change their minds to see a more positive approach. If the child can speak about what is troubling them this can help you support them to work with them to develop strategies to cope.
There are a number of remedies to aid as support here. If the anguish is hard to define and they are fidgety, Aconite often helps.
Argentum Nit is great when they often say "ohh but what if"
When a child comes across as bossy and demands a too high a standard of himself and then loses his self confidence you can consider Lycopodium
Pulsatilla is a great support when the child will not let go of mum and is teary
The child that seems very quiet and too calm but runs to the toilet often may be helped by Gelsemium.
These remedies can be given for a few days prior to the great event and even after if need be also. Sometimes the issues arise after we know what we are up against. A play on the trampoline together and sharing afternoon tea can bring out the issue and then with the aid of remedies the issue can be resolved.
All in all I wish you all well with your new years beginnings and adventures of 2014
The Nyoongar Season –Bunuru
Second Summer Febuary - March 2014
Bunuru is the hottest time of the year with little to no rain.
A striking flower that is hard to go past is the female Zamia (Macrozamia riedlei). Being much larger than that of its male counterpart, the huge cones emerge from the centre of the plant with masses of a cotton wool like substance. This can be stored for using as tinder in fire making in later seasons, when the rains soaks the ground.
This was a new thing that I experienced this last year.
As this is the 6th edition this newsletter also concludes a full year of Aboriginal seasonal cycles. I hope you have been enjoying this part of the newsletter.
We look forward to conversing with you again.
Until then enjoy the season.
