Homeopathy Tips for 10/18/11 Inherited Project Purpose and Miasm

To understand the dilemma of destiny in the human condition one needs only to study the lives of our ancestors. Hahnemann recognised our inherited and acquired tendencies and wrote about this in Chronic Diseases. He described miasm as noxious influence. This is something that affects the vital force. It is spiritual and dynamic in it’s influence. We only need to look to many different traditions to see this idea is not new.

The bible quotes in Lamentations 5:7, “Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.”  This means that we have inherited the inequities of our fathers. The American Indians recognised that seven generations pass before their errors are corrected.

More recently the work of Marc Frechet, a brilliant French psychologist and researcher, is being recognised. He proposed that the entire time around a child’s birth, from conception to birth and later until the child separates it’s identity from the mother (around the age 27 months) form the project purpose of that child’s life. Everything that the child experiences is recorded in the brain and cells of the body. The stresses that are present in the parent’s life get transferred to the child’s life. Even though the child may not have conscious memory of this later in life the programming is there. When a similar situation arises the child will respond from this unconscious memory and the physiology will change also in response.

In New German Medicine the work of Ryke Hamer and Claude Sabbah have further observed that previous ancestral conflicts will influence the current generation. This follows natural law that says every material phase is proceeded by an immaterial phase. There is a project or plan in it’s immaterial phase and a purpose in it’s material phase. So for every human being there is a reason that we have come to this life with our inherited project purpose. The desires, attitudes, and needs of the parents will be projected to the child and the child will live this out. History has shown numerous examples of this.

Hahnemann recognised that the ancestors ills plays a great part of why we will present illness in particular ways. He recognised the four major miasms of Psora, Sycosis, Syphilis and Tuberculosis. But the modern research of the New German Medicine goes straight to the story of the person. Not just the miasmatic influences of the known miasms and how they effect an individual are considered, but the project purpose of why the individual came to express illness and how that it is a perfect solution as it tries to resolve the conflicts of it’s creators. Every individual has a purpose that corresponds to the project that was made for it by it’s creator, the biological parents.

All our life we are serving a purpose that was set unconsciously by our parents. We can free ourselves of this by bringing this to awareness. The psychological conflicts of the parents become the biological conflicts of the child. Many illnesses that seem to have no “reason” make perfect sense when viewed through the mental/emotional conflicts of the parents.

When I receive a case I pay particular attention to the stories of childhood and the stories about the persons parents. The unresolved conflicts of the parents will play a part in the person’s life and health. Often they repeat the same story as the parent. Homeopathy describes this as miasm but I believe that it is a fairly limited view of why we get sick the way we do. There is a bigger picture that can be perceived and if we are able to see it and understand it, the simillimum remedy can be given much easier.

You can learn more about these subjects by reading the Ancestor Syndrome by Anne Schutzenberger and Biogeneology, Decoding the Psychic Roots of Illness by Patrick Obbissier. These books give plenty of information and examples of this principle. I have found that this idea has become part of the missing link in understanding why we get sick the way we do. Every illness has meaning and having the understanding of project purpose in a persons life allows me to help them with homeopathy and finding the simillimum much easier.

    This is extremely valuable information and for me personally a great reminder of my own life and many others I know.Just wish I could share the story in details -(what would be about 2 pages minimum)–Thanks for your work

    This sounds similar to Grant Bentley’s homeopathic facial analysis system regarding Soul and Survival principles. The biography of the client reflects the pattern of stresses and inherited miasm that have led to imbalances and poor health. The face also reflects the underlying dominant miasm showing the universal laws of the universe in terms of energy and motion. The face is used as the objective criteria whereas the biography is more subjective in interpretation and hence less accurate. One’s life story often reflects the same conflicts experienced by the parents, the same similar negative pattern of behavior that leads one to think about the play of karma and free will in our lives.

    I like the article very much and read it with great interest. Thank you for the information which deepens our insight leading to ancestor’s root.

    While receiving the case of an infant shall we use the rubrics related to the desires, attitude and behaviour of the parents in the rubrics of the infant to reach simillium. Please comment.

      Hi Asghar,
      Use those types of rubrics if they are relevant to the case. Some cases speak loudly about the acute condition. Some speak loudly about the miasm. When the case is speaking loudly in this area the parents sharing information about the child will also be telling you their story as well. Then when you see that the parents are a part of the childs case in an outstanding way, use the rubrics for the parents and it will help the child.

    Fascinating and well thought out and notated. Thank you for these new arrows in my quiver! I have learned as a miasmatic prescriber that if the remedy does not cover the miasm(s) present in the patient, the rx will not touch the case. I am speaking of Hahnemann’s miasms. It is interesting to think that Frechet’s work is considered fresh, when we homeopaths have taken this POV for so long. Thanks for the thought provoking article. I am excited to pick up some of the books you mentioned. All the best to you!

    Study of major miasmsis of paramount importance

    Thank you so much for your wonderful work. I am only a lay student of Homeopathy, but this particular article speaks to my specific condition of mind right now. Also, I greatly appreciate the mention of books and the works of others. I hope to see more of this in your newsletters.
    With Gratitude,
    Camille V.

    Another informative article on the subject.Experience shows that at the time of case taking history some parental question may be asked as and when needed to grasp the knowledge about the patient’s history regarding the disease.

  10. Dr. Archana on

    This is true to say that a child, even he is below 1 year age carries all the informations about his parents activities in his subconcious mind, he will respond in the same manner when he will become adult.
    But all patients donot give their childhood histories, rather I would say they r not interested to give such histories. Some of them think it is nothing to do with their present symptoms, some say they donot have time to give histories, & some donot want to share their unpleasent childhood experiences. In such cases it is very difficult to reach upto the root. Most of these cases r ONE SIDED DISEASES, requring long period treatment

    Really nice article. All your articles are very informative. Whether we agree completely or partially does not matter as compared to the effort you are taking to give everyone this information. These articles makes us think about new ways and avenues.

    In this article, i completely agree with the following lines “Everything that the child experiences is recorded in the brain and cells of the body. The stresses that are present in the parent’s life get transferred to the child’s life. Even though the child may not have conscious memory of this later in life the programming is there”

    Thanks for all the information.
