Psychology of Arsenicum album

Life situation

Fear of violent death. Fear for his existence. Would rather die than change himself. Old negative experiences are stronger than the certainty of being able to determine his life himself. Has forgotten that the outer is initiated by the inner. Believes he has no influence on the outer. Believes he is in a situation with no way out in which the outer forces are stronger than his own inner potential.

Arsenicum album Message

Face life; recognize the motives that created the situation!


Message of Arsenicum album

Condition After Taking the Remedy (high potency)

After Arsenicum album, it becomes evident that the personality was together with people whose “chemistry” did not match (fl-ac) for a long time. Out of this influence, there arose a dependency (chin, chin-s). The personality has not yet learned to employ its strength for its own positive purposes (carb-v) but wastes it still in order to earn itself love (jod) and to push its individuality away (lach). It must learn to recognize its own needs and to act accordingly (kali-bi), to give itself a structure (merc, merc-s), and to stop wanting to change others instead of itself (hep).

Fears for his existence; would rather die than change.”
