+ Why does the body return to the position of injury in order to release? – November 05
I have a question. In SER the body often returns
to the position of injury either emotional or
physical in order to release the disease (energy
cyst) held there. This fits perfectly with the
founding law of Homoeopathy “like cures like’ or
similia similibus curentur. But I can find no
written explanation for why this law is a law!
What is your experience of why the body holds to
this?. Or does it always?
The principal of ‘like curing like’ is the same
in cranio sacral therapy and homoeopathy but the
mechanics of how the ‘curing’ happens are
different for each.
During cranio sacral therapy the body goes to
the position it was in when the trauma occurred so
that it can reconnect with its underlying
But hang on, I’m getting ahead of myself.
Let’s talk about the blueprint for a minute.
Why do plants, trees, animals etc. grow into
the shape they do? How do the cells in a bone
know to become bone cells?
Currently we are told that the answers to these
questions lie in the mysteries of DNA.
DNA is very cool stuff and remarkable in its
own right. But in time, the limitations of DNA
will reveal themselves. The genome will be mapped
better than Manhattan and these questions will
What has yet to be proven is that when a seed
is planted it starts to unfold an energetic
outline or blueprint of the shape it will grow
into and the cells migrate in accordance to the
blueprint. DNA is the executive of this process
and responds to the blueprint.
Think iron fillings, magnet, paper. The magnet
(Blueprint) influences the iron filling (Cells) to
form into a particular shape, the shape of the
magnet. You may not be able to see the magnet
because it is hidden behind the paper but you know
what shape it is by the shape the iron filing are
Most of the older traditions have identified
different expressions of the blueprint and
represent it in different ways.
In traditional Chinese medicine there are the
meridians. In Ayurvedic medicine there are the
charkas. In Toltec or Mexican shamanism there
are what are called the feathers of the eagle.
The botanist, Rupert Sheldrake has been talking
about this kind of stuff for years, he describes
it in terms of morphic fields.
When a person’s system gets traumatised, the
cells may be displaced but they return to their
original position under the influence of the
As they do this, they have a particular
movement which thankfully for us, is palpable.
The whole process goes to make up the auto repair
mechanism we call a release.
When the trauma won’t release it’s because the
blueprint itself has been bent out of shape.
We learned early on, that given the right
support a body will start to move of it’s own
volition. If we can follow this movement and
know when to hold it, we may be able to facilitate
That initial movement is the cells of the body
looking for the blue print. When the persons body
returns to the position where the trauma occurred,
the cells and the blueprint reconnect. It’s at
this point that all the different manifestations
of release can occur, pulsations, trembling,
shaking, sweating, crying, laughing and that’s not
to mention what goes on for the patient.
Once the cells and blueprint reconnect then the
whole system, cells and blueprint, come back into
alignment and harmony.
So as I said it’s a process of re-collection.
Not all bodies need to go into the traumatic
position to release. Sometimes restriction
patterns are very ripe for release and need very
little support to complete the process.
I’ve also found over the years that as I’ve
gotten better at working with the blueprint,
deeper subtleties have revealed themselves.
I find more releases are happening at deeper
levels and require less gross movements on the
Back to the homoeopathic question. As you know,
I’m not a homoeopath but I do know some great ones.
So I went and checked with one of them to see if my
suspicions about how the mechanics of ‘like curing
like’ are different between cranio sacral and homoeopathy,
and she confirmed what I thought.
With homoeopathy, the remedy caries an
energetic signature that causes the whole
energetic structure in the system to change.
So going back to the magnet and iron filings
analogy, I’ll explain the difference in mechanics
that I spoke about in the beginning.
If a square shaped magnet gets bent out of
shape on one side. What cranio sacral does is
collect all the iron filings on that side and help
them to ‘find’ the bent shape and collect it,
allowing it to return to its original state of
With homeopathy a magnet that is normally red
has become blue. The homeopath identifies the
remedy the magnet needs. Blue. They know this
because in the proving of the remedy many healthy
red magnets were given this remedy and they all
started demonstrating blue symptoms. So the blue
magnet is given the blue remedy and the whole
composition of the magnet starts to change.
Eventually the magnet returns to its natural state
