Gadolinium

May 31, 2008

At the top of the lanthanides is Gadolinium. It is in stage 10, the same stage as Niccolum (ironseries) and Palladium (silverseries).

With Gadolinium the insecurity makes place for confidence. While in stage 9 perfection (virgo) was combined with insecurity (cancer), is in stage 10 the perfection combined with confidence (leo).   

Ego development, setting yourself apart from the rest of the world. Becoming your own person. Self-expression, being true to your inner nature, acting from the heart. Dawning awareness of self in relation to others. Ego, self-centred, arrogant. Artistic or creative expression. Needs to be a center of attention, likes to be noticed and appreciated, ego-strokes. Personal integrity, true to self, honorable, trustworthy, self-assured, confident.

So stage 10 is the phase of confidence (leo) and perfection (virgo) in the totality of the lanthanides. It is the final result of the development of the self.

Here with Gadolinium the individual has complete self-control. And it is not before the next stage that the control gets disturbed by ‘the other’ (libra).

Palladium

April 7, 2008

With Palladium we arrive at stage 10 of the silverseries. The silverseries, with the focus on reflection (libra) and vision (sagittarius), has come to the top with the individual spirit (leo),

Ego development, setting yourself apart from the rest of the world. Becoming your own person. Self-expression, being true to your inner nature, acting from the heart. Dawning awareness of self in relation to others. Ego, self-centred, arrogant. Artistic or creative expression. Needs to be a center of attention, likes to be noticed and appreceated, ego-strokes. Personal integrity, true to self, honorable, trustworthy, self-assured, confident.

and the individual body (virgo).

Embodiment of the individual in the world. Problems of adjustment dealing with the world and others. Perfection of the approach to life. Development of mundane skills, ability to change to adapt to life better. Perfectionist, always seeking to improve, efficiency, practical, functional, analytical. Reacts to defeats and setbacks by pulling back and altering approach. Interested in maintaining the body as a fit vehicle.

So before going over to the individual mind and soul in the next two stages, here is a culmination of the individual spirit and body.

Scholten gives the essence of success in performing art.

Manage to show themselve. Know what they are worth and what they can do, and trust that they can bring that over to others. Enough inspiration to be successful. Like to perform and like to be the centre of attention. Like attention and compliments. Like to hear that they did well and like to be flatterd. Need to be praised. Not only like to see that they are the best, they also want others to say and show it. Their position asks for confirmation. So convinced of their talents and creativity that they become pride. Talk with an air, as from someone who is successful. Like to be admired in company. Keep the party going, but get home alone, exhausted afterwards. Should be honoured, but doubt if others know that. Hurt if they are not in the centre of attention.

Niccolum

February 28, 2008

With Niccolum we arrive at the top of the ironseries. It is the first remedy where the individual is totally separate from his primordial background. With the two previous stages cancer still played a role, but here in stage 10 the emotions are left out. Scholten talks about being cut of from their emotions.

Should not have strong and negative emotions. Think that others will not appreciate their emotions and will not appreciate them if they show those emotions. Hide their negative emotions. Can not feel anything so will not look at emotions. Go on until they do not know anymore what they feel. Do not know what is the matter with them.

The signs that play a role here are leo and virgo. It is the combination of confidence and perfection. 

Want to be successful in their work, with their task. There is no doubt about their function. Hard workers. Do their noble duty and want to do that. Are good at it. Want to be the best, at school, at home and at their job. Want to do their job as good as possible, at best perfect, get the best grades at school. Can become haughty. Have to keep themself under control.

But also the compliments aquarius and pisces are seen here. 

Restlessness and tense feeling. Do not want to be confronted with something suddenly. Distance to others, no deep relations. Hate being controled. Need to escape of all the rules. Hate bureaucraty, do not hold to rules. Want to go into the wide world. Or go into a complete fantasy world.
