RUBRIC : JEALOUSY


Jealousy:
Jealousy is an emotion; the term generally refers to the thoughts or feelings of insecurity, fear, concern, and envy over relative lack of possessions, status or something of great personal value, particularly in reference to a comparator.

Jealousy often consists of one or more of emotions such as angerresentment, inadequacy, helplessness or disgust. In its original meaning, jealousy is distinct from envy, though the two terms have popularly become synonymous in the English language, with jealousy now also taking on the definition originally used for envy alone.

Jealousy is a typical experience in human relationships, and it has been observed in infants as young as five months. Some claim that jealousy is seen in every culture; however, others claim jealousy is a culture-specific phenomenon.

Sexual jealousy may be triggered when a person's significant other displays sexual interest in another person. The feeling of jealousy may be just as powerful if one partner suspects the other is guilty of infidelity. Fearing that their partner will experience sexual jealousy the person who has been unfaithful may lie about their actions in order to protect their partner. Experts often believe that sexual jealousy is in fact a biological imperative. It may be part of a mechanism by which humans and other animals ensure access to the best reproductive partners.

It seems that male jealousy in heterosexual relationships may be influenced by their female partner's phase in her menstrual cycle. In the period around and shortly before ovulation, males are found to display more mate-retention tactics, which are linked to jealousy. Furthermore, a male is more likely to employ mate-retention tactics if their partner shows more interest in other males, which is more likely to occur in the pre-ovulation phase.

Romantic jealousy arises as a result of romantic interest. It is defined as “a complex of thoughts, feelings, and actions that follow threats to self-esteem and/or threats to the existence or quality of the relationship when those threats are generated by the perception of a real or potential romantic attraction between one's partner and a (perhaps imaginary) rival.” Different from sexual jealousy, romantic jealousy is triggered by threats to self and relationship (rather than sexual interest in another person). Factors, such as feelings of inadequacy as a partner, sexual exclusivity, and having put relatively more effort into the relationship, are positively related to relationship jealousy in both genders.
Dictionary Meaning:

1.      feeling of unhappiness and anger because someone has something or someone that you want.
2.      Jealousy is the feeling of anger or bitterness which someone has when they think that another person is trying to take a lover or friend, or a possessionaway from them.
3.      Jealousy is the feeling of anger or bitterness which someone has when they wish that they could have the qualities or possessions that another person has.


[Note: Do not use jealousy when ENVY is the symptom. Jealousy mostly means being jealous of a partner. It is not the same as envy. With jealousy there is erotism involved. Envy is more for material things.]

Remedies in details:

APIS MELLIFICA (APIS): Jealousy with anger and desire to kill, torments others, running about, aggravation in daytime (mostly women).  Jealousy between women. And jealousy with loquacity.

ARSENICUM ALBUM (ARS): Jealousy of a man towards a man.  Jealousy of a woman towards a woman.  Jealousy of a child towards a child.

HYOSCYAMUS (HYOS): Jealousy is a combination of attachment (or desire) and fear of loss. Any type can suffer from jealousy, but those types that are both anxious and highly sexed are most prone to severe or pathological jealousy, and these include Lachesis and Hyoscyamus in particular. Jealousy is pathological when it occurs in the absence of a likelihood of competition for, or loss of the loved one or loved thing.
 In Hyoscyamus individuals feelings of jealousy can be so powerful that they totally dominate the life of the patient and her partner. The characteristic thing about the morbid jealousy of Hyoscyamus is that it tends to be accompanied by rage. A Hyoscyamus woman may appear entirely normal except when she is feeling jealous, when she is transformed into a biting, screaming, kicking maniac (Kent: 'Jealousy', 'Desires to strike'). Jealousy with grief.

IGNATIA (IGN):  Effects of disappointed love, with silent grief and delicate conscientiousness; affectionate disposition, with very clear consciousness. Her problems are aggravated from  jealousy.

LACHESIS (LACH): Lachesis ranks with Hyoscyamus as being the most prone to intense feelings of jealousy of all the constitutional types. The more intense a person's desire, the more liable they are to feel jealous of others who have what the desirer wants. Thus we can understand Lachesis jealousy as a natural consequence of his strong desire.  Sexual jealousy is the commonest form seen in Lachesis people, since sexual desire is usually their most intense attachment. In some cases this jealousy can be totally unrealistic, and can dominate the relationship to the point where it threatens its very existence. Jealousy of a man towards a woman. Jealousy of a woman towards a man.  And jealousy with loquacity

LYCOPODIUM (LYC): Head full of ideas of defiance and jealousy.  Anxious dreams, jealousy.

NUXVOMICA (NUX-V): Nux-v respects strength, and if his partner is a strong woman, he will willingly share his throne with her. He will not only leave the domestic decisions to her in the main, but will also encourage her to make her mark upon the world. Many a Nux-v wife lives in her husband's shadow publicly, but some are able to match his energy and his ability, and manage to avoid losing themselves. Others fall prey to Nux-v dominating personality, and end up as his chattel.

Because Nux-v has strong appetites, and is possessive of his spoils of war, he is more prone than most to jealousy. Even though he may be unfaithful to his wife, he is liable to explode with rage if she favours another, and to punish both his wife and her other man. Emperors do not take kindly to competition when it comes to sexual love.
Injurious out of jealousy, with shameless expressions, quarrels and reproaches. Jealousy of a man towards a woman.  Jealousy of a woman towards a man. Jealousy of a woman towards a woman.  Jealousy of a child towards another child.

While Ignatia is indicated in men (specially women) who have tender and delicate conscience, who concentrate their emotions and are tormented incessantly by them, with alternate hilarity and tears, Nux vomica is indicated in men (specially in men) who express themselves violently, but internally they are greatly impressionable, sad, weep, groan, sob, blame, reproach, quarrel, injure, anger up to blows, stubbornness (their impatience to tolerate contrariety and contradictions), attack of jealousy with obscene words.

PHOSPHORICUM ACID (PH-AC):  Chronic effects from disappointed love; hectic fever, flushing of the face, especially afternoon and night with sweating; crushing weight on vertex; uterine and ovarian complaints in consequence of the depressing emotion.

PULSATTILLA (PULS): Like Natrum and Ignatia, Pulsatilla will tend to get very jealous of other children if they are favoured by her parent. In fact, she will get jealous of anyone who takes up her parent's time, or the time of her best friend (Kent: 'Jealousy'). In her jealousy, she is apt to behave petulantly, taking her spite out on her competitor, as well as on her loved one. Thus she may break her brother's new toy if she thinks it is nicer than hers, and refuse to eat her lunch if he is the centre of attention on his birthday.  

Suffering after a fit of jealousy. Jealousy of a man towards a man.  Jealousy of a man towards a woman.  Jealousy of a woman towards a man.
SEPIA (SEP): Jealousy of a woman against woman.  Jealousy of a child towards a child.

RUBRIC : OEDIPUS COMPLEX


OEDIPUS COMPLEX:

This rubric in found in the Essential Synthesis repertory and no other repertories.

What is Oedipus Complex?

The Oedipus complex is a concept of psychoanalytic theorySigmund Freud introduced the concept in his Interpretation of Dreams (1899). It refers to a child's unconscious desire for the opposite-sex parent, thought as a necessary stage of psychosexual development. Freud considered that the child's identification with the same-sex parent is the successful resolution of the complex and that unsuccessful resolution of the complex might lead to neurosispedophilia, and homosexuality.

Freud deprecated the term "Electra complex", which was introduced by Carl Gustav Jung in 1913 in regard to the Oedipus complex manifested in young girls. Freud further proposed that the Oedipus complex, which originally refers to the sexual desire of a son for his mother, is a desire for the parent in both males and females, and that boys and girls experience the complex differently: boys in a form of castration anxiety, girls in a form of penis envy. Oedipus refers to a 5th-century BC Greek mythological character Oedipus, who unwittingly kills his father, Laius, and marries his mother, Jocasta. A play based on the myth, Oedipus Rex, was written by Sophocles, ca. 429 BC.

Meaning:

1.      in psychology (= the study of the human mind), a child's sexual desire for their parent of the opposite sexespecially that of a boy for his mother.

2.      If a boy or man has an Oedipus complex, he feels sexual desire for his mother and has hostile feelings towards his father.

3.      a group of emotions, usually unconscious, involving the desire of a child, esp a male child, to possess sexually the parent of the opposite sex while excluding the parent of the same sex.

LAC HUMANUM (LAC-H): Lac humanum will always develop an overprotective, symbiotic relationship with one parent, and a hate relationship with the other. Lac humanum proiect on to the parent whom they hate, all their psychological , delusions of persecution” Lac humanum will be convinced that the parent whom they hate is injurious to them and to the rest of the family. she says: I have nothing but hate for my father, and his lack of love and support for us. Lac humanum always equate abandonment with injury, this is why the list of abandonment rubrics below are a mixture of being alone, friendless and. neglected, as ‘ otdipu’ complex is a son’s largely unconscious sexual attraction toward his mother accompanied toward his father’ Austrian by jealousy psychiatrist Sigmund Freud first used the term.

Oedipus is the hero of the ancient Greek play oedipus Tyrannus, by Sophocles, which tells the story of how oedipus was abandoned at birth by his parents and returned as an adult to kill his father and marry his mother. Freud suggested that if this complex is not resolved in the young child, it contributes to neurosis in later life. Swiss psychologist Carl fung suggested that such feelings were not restricted to boys but that girls could also experience a similar complex. ( Dr. Manish Bhatia)


LACHESIS (LACH):  Mentally , Lachesis is  jealous and the main remedy for the Oedipus complex, when the child must accept the father’s interference in the mother-child relationship. To identify with the father, be jealous of the father, desire to kill the father, and finally to accept him and love him- this is the prelude to the child’s socialization.  ( Dr. Didier Grandgeorge).

It is need not to mention here that so many new remedies were added in the modern repertories due to by the vast experience of intelligent homeopaths throughout world.

Now, we can understand the individual remedy.

ANDROCTONUS ( ANDROC) : Wants to control others. The remedy has a self-centred egotism, as well as being dictatorial. It may have a feeling of being totally alone in the world with a tendency to isolation, with a feeling that the rest of the world were mad - not her.

ARNICA (ARN): He knows best. He tried hard to convince himself and others that he is not a nobody. He is dictatorial because he is convinced of the use. He will say,” You have to do it this way, because so it is useful”. Utility is important here. He does not want to be treated when sick. He wants to do it himself. You do not have to interfere. “Mind your own business , I will do it with myself”. He has also aversion to be touched.

CHELIDONIUM (CHEL): He is simply bossy, a harsh ruler who will not retract. It is not exactly clear why he is bossy.

CHINA (CHIN):  He is dictatorial because he experiences others as obstacles for his plans. He is also afraid they will notice his stupidity. After a while he recognizes his own stupidity because he is full of plans in the evening, and afterwards , in the morning , he realises how useless and worthless they are. When this happens a few times, you will start wondering if your brain functions properly. He also  dictatorial out of suspicion. He does not trust anybody. “They are all against me, they all cross my plans. If that is the way I will bear it in mind. I will make sure nobody will obstruct me any more.” So he is dictatorial.

CONIUM (CON):  Because he wants to be the first and the best.

With FERR, you have to look for disposition to contradict, intolerant of contradiction and conscientious about trifles. He is not yet fast enough. Everything has to proceed into the smallest details in his way of thinking. He is quite set in his habit. FERR means rust iron, inflexible. Think of the  inflexibility of the iron.

PLANTINA (PLAT): She does not too much energy in her being dictatorial. She does not care whether you listen or not. To her you are small fry. She finds it only normal that you follow her.
