Editorial – Summer 2021
Welcome to the Summer 2021 issue of Clever H. In the Western Hemisphere we are finally moving into the warmer and brighter months of the year, so hopes are high for more fun times ahead, but, we can still not by pass the still very present topic of the pandemic.
However, with gentle easing of restrictions and more uplifting news on ever lesser case numbers, I think we are slowly getting to the point where we can and have to look at the ‘side-effects’ of all that has and is going on.
To me, what, aside of the omnipresent virus comes to mind, are the anxiety, the fear, perhaps even guilt and hate. Anxiety of course, because this situation has been new and challenging; fear of course, because everyone was/is afraid of spreading or catching the virus. Guilt, I feel is also a part of the ‘after-math’ of what is going on, because we gradually have to ask ourselves if we could not have done a couple of things differently and better. Last but not least, perhaps even hate is brewing, hate for the situation, the lost time, the restrictions, the conundrum, still being confined to home, and being deprived of the customary familial and social contact. The loss of a family member, the loss of a job, the arising economical issues, they all contribute to a form of ‘hate’, because for many of us understanding and acceptance have been tested and are diminishing. There are probably a lot of individualized reasons for all of the above on top of the mentioned ones.
These current times made me chose this issues featured topic to be ‘Homeopathy in anxiety, fear, guilt and hate’ and the articles that I am able to bring to you are all looking at these topics, from different angles, in different cases, from the experiences of authors that are all fabulous homeopaths. I hope you enjoy reading and learning from the wonderful authors that have contributed to this issue.
The deadline for the next issue is the 15th of July…all topics surrounding health, wellness, or homeopathy are welcome. As a featured theme for that issue I am suggesting: ‘Remedy families or Family remedies (for hereditary diseases)’.
Your contributions are always greatly appreciated and I hope, with publishing your works on Clever H., I am assisting you at gaining the exposure that you deserve.
Have a warm and sunny June and July, and in August I hope to bring you another fabulous issue with contributions by fantastic authors.
