At some point in our lives, events, circumstances or tragedies make us question life a little more deeply than we previously thought to. What makes a person unique? Is it how we were raised? Is it where life takes us? Is is the people we meet? The degrees we study? The hobbies we love? Are we already who we are destined to be when we are born or do we spend a lifetime becoming ‘us’?
What is most remarkable about life is that our perceptions are as individual as ourselves and therefore no two people can have the same outlook on life.
So how we perceive things determines how they will be shaped.
As Eckhart Tolle wrote: ‘Internal and external are ultimately one. When you no longer perceive the world as hostile, there is no more fear, and when there is no more fear, you think, speak and act differently. Love and compassion arise, and they affect the world.’
Ahh – but why does this way of being come easily to some and not others?
Jan Schoten is a Medical Doctor in Homeopathy, Researcher, Writer who has published many books on homeopathy and has developed a theory which looks at the theories of our outlooks through the stages and theories of the periodic table.

Where do you see yourself in the stages? Do you dream but struggle to begin what you really want? Do you always begin something only to reach the stage of almost completion and give up? Do you feel like you can never keep the windfalls you obtain, that you are somehow always reaching the top to shortly after, find yourself unable to maintain it and lose everything you achieved?
Perception is everything, as we learn to listen to our hearts rather than the voices that stop us can you only imagine the world we would live in?
The direct polar opposite of love is fear, so is it fear that is the underlying emotion/feeling that we listen to? The child that was told they were no good, the wife that feels unappreciated, the man who feels that his opinion is worthless, the human who feels like they will be shamed for breathing to the rhythm of their own drum.
I love the way that homeopathy can bring these fears to the surface to be cleared so that we can fulfill our potential and create lives that make our hearts sing and jump for joy. determining which stage and series you are helps me determine which remedy is best at this moment in time and how I would prescribe it.
Giving is always a part of the cycle to equilibrium because is it only possible to give when our cups are full enough.
Take a look at this youtube clip by Vishen Lakhiani who asks you the Three Most Important Questions to Ask Yourself. When he asks you to take a minute – pause and take as long as you like to write as much as you like and see what you discover about yourself:
So as of the 1st of February 2016, where do you find yourself? What are your current perceptions and how are they shaping your world?
This post is in memory of Rod Hocker who passed away at the point on the 23rd of January 2016 doing what he loved – surfing. I attended Rod’s Funeral today and what a full life he had. Rod Shaped not only surfboards to suit the surroundings but his life to match in many ways. My heart goes out to his family and friends that will miss this man deeply. Thank you Rod for the showing us how to live and giving in the ways you did. As a new mum, Rod was determined to get me back in the water, I had approached him about making me a board and was so keen that I paid for most of it that day. Rod dropped one of his boards around to my house that he was selling on so I could ride straight away. He never made me a new board but never needed to, I love that board so much and feel lucky to have it. RIP Rod Hocker
