Important Tips for Case Receiving Protocol
May 28, 2020
It helps to have a guide when receiving cases. It is easy to get lost in the process and miss a valuable opportunity to get to really know about your client. The hardest part is being an unprejudiced observer. It is so easy to fall into the trap of thinking we know something that may or may not be true for our client. I find that letting go and asking for divine help to be the fastest way to get out of my own way. It is the most effective way to release our prejudice.
Here is a list of points to remember during the case. Following this will help greatly so you will not miss anything your client offers. Your clarity will be the difference between a perfect prescription and failure. The key is getting out of our own way.
Case Receiving Protocol
- Ask for help - Set your intention by aligning yourself with "Divine Help." Be an open channel so all will be revealed and to be a clear, unprejudiced observer. Do not attach emotionally to the person. You might as well be taking your own case if you do.
- Do not lead the case - Begin case taking by asking them to share everything you will need to know so that you can help them. Leave it open. Ask questions only to clarify something they have said and do not interrupt. Wait until they have finished talking to ask a question to clarify only.
- Make your notes as exact as possible - Write down as verbatim as possible the words they say. Exactly. This can be challenging but try, even when taking a case by video. It’s a good practice.
- Pay close attention - Listen carefully and try to grasp what is asking to be healed. What are the themes and keywords they use repeatedly? These will speak to the energy of the case and the remedy. The first 5 minutes of the case is the most important. Don’t miss a thing during this time. Most cases are complete during this time so pay attention.
- Always ask why - When you find a "crack" in their story, go back and ask them to share more. Ask for examples, ask for a story. This is where you will get the richness of their experience, not the therapized version. Ask all questions open-ended. Do not ask questions like "are you afraid of heights?" Instead, phrase it like, "Do you have any fears or things that bother you?"
- Avoid transcendental speculation - Do not theorize about the case. See it for how the person shares it and their experience, not yours. Remember, it's okay not to know. As soon as you think you are the one "doing it," you are lost. Let it go and come back to the case. Ask for help.
- Don't look for rubrics before - When you have discovered what it is that is asking to be healed, only then should you start looking for rubrics for the case, not before. If you start to think of remedies, make a note, and then let it go. You will be transferring your thoughts of the remedy to the case if you do not. You are guaranteed to fail if you do not let it go.
- Look for the big fish - Look for those symptoms that speak to the undeniable and the most easily observed that have a thread that represents the energy of the case
- Look for rare and peculiar symptoms - Keep an eye and ear out for the things that are unusual and not so common. Look for the ways that the person has deviated from natural law.
- Do your research - If you cannot find the rubric easily, look in the index of the books for words associated with the symptom or do a word search in the program.
- Keep it simple - Most of the time, you will need at least 2 but preferably 3 rubrics to lead you to a group of remedies. Remember the "three-legged stool."
- Select mental rubrics carefully - The mental rubrics are most important and are the best representatives of the energy of the person’s life, so select them carefully.
- Go back to the case - Once you have some remedies to consider, go back to the case and look for remedies that carry a similar essence. Remember you are giving a remedy for their life, not their symptoms.
- Study the remedies from Materia Medica - Look at the Mind section and get a feel for the energy and essence of the remedy you are considering. Compare it to other remedies until you have a smaller group to choose from, those that best describe the essence of the case.
- If you cannot confirm a remedy, wait - Come back to the case and ask for more information. "Can you tell me more?" Ask for help. Don’t try. It will block you from having the remedy rise to you and be clear. If you are trying too hard, it will stop you, Remember to trust that you have shown up to be the homeopath and that you cannot fail. Only if you give a remedy that is not completely clear for you, will you fail. So, wait. Go back to the case. Get clear. Ask for help.
- Give the remedy and let it go - When the remedy has become the perfect match in your mind, only then should you give the remedy. Then, let it go. Let the true healer, God, do the work. It is no longer in your hands and your job is to simply show up as the homeopath and guide the process with follow-ups.
