Have you ever watched a theatre play so engaging that you got totally absorbed by almost palpable shock wave of the intensity; the action; the colours of the characters; the twists of the plot – that you never questioned humble origins of the drama? Most probably, only well after you finished watching the play some deeper questions started to pop into your awareness: why this particular action? why these particular characters? in this particular time? and that particular way? 

Something very similar happens when we talk to our patients (friends; family members) who share their drama – whether past, actual or perceived but non the less real for them. It’s hard something to step back and see what they actually need, outside of the obvious and immediate extinguishing the blaze (with our calming Endocrine, pain relieving Lymphatic or stagnation and conflict resolving Degenerative treatments). And here is where all our Health Plans, Primary and Cross-check diagnostic endeavours come into play. 

When we know an overall ‘theme of the party’ we can best see how we can support the person on the day even if whatever they present with in this moment seems to be so vastly different from what you know about them, their Path, their wishes, hereditary weaknesses and health predisposition and all. Because it only seems so on the surface – digging deeper we almost guaranteed to come up against some variations of the same core problems and main conflicts. In theory, as we progress with our therapy strategy, we can see this on a higher run of the spiral or along the lines of ‘better quality problems’ if we play our cards right as therapists 🙂 

How do we connect with ‘the roots’, how do we invite our patients to look underneath the drama and into a bigger picture? All the while attending to important details which transforms your simple treatment on the day into a powerful thread in the big tapestry of their health creation?  

Here are some initial ideas and examples in this video fragment from our monthly FREE Colourpuncture Q&A call, May 2022 (please see our Colourpuncture Q&A May 2022 Playlist for more videos from the call).

When I started practicing seeing the bigger picture under the presenting dramas with my patients, things became easier; clearer; more efficient. Both my patient and me would share a much better vision of their intended direction; progress assessment; accountability – to which both parties would contribute with every session; every homework. 

I have to thank my science background for that – incidentally (or not?) my PhD thesis was about observing the ‘short’ and ‘long’ waves of certain reactions in biological systems, so I learnt to recognise these processes in anything else, health pictures including. A subsequent training in both Colourpuncture and Acupuncture and Iridology further shaped up this practice. 

When you combine this long term view with a workable level of Colourpuncture (Acupuncture, Reflexology, etc) system knowledge and skills, you create the best support for your patient. The bigger picture is useless without fine details which make a person feel better on the day as we are building the house of sustainable health one little brick at a time. And the whole array  of very useful and potentially workable and effective Acupuncture points, Reflexology Zones, all the wonderful Colourpuncture media are short lived in their effects without a reliable diagnostic and an overall long term direction. 

Basically…we need to know in which direction we are guiding our patients supporting them on their journey through health and life challenges. Then we can confidently take Just One step, every single session, in this direction. 

Here is the video transcript if you like reading 🙂

“It’s a question about ‘gross dis-balance’. Remember, I give this example? You’re in the middle of the ocean, you’re in a boat and the boat is a bit rusty; and it’s a bit not colourful; and you want to paint it. But suddenly you notice that there is a big hole, and what you do? You fix this hole! Now, the question of gross dis-balance comes again, again and again – with every patient; with every condition; with every life in fact… because our gross dis-balance tends to be our main conflict and finding this conflict and patching this big hole in our life is more an art than it is a science. But sometimes people come and they present with something really really dramatic happening in their life or with their health or in their family. But underneath this something really dramatic there is some more… and if there is something really really dramatic I would encourage you to ask them questions which will go under the drama and see what it is in this drama for them which creates such a distress. And of course coming back to constitutional weaknesses, this tends to be the biggest dis-balance. So for example, coming back to our example with constitutions – the Iridology constitutions – for somebody for example whose lymphatic system tends to stagnate, they really need to move. They really need to move their body. And they need to watch their diet obviously. And they need to deal with a general level of pain because this constitution means pain in big letters. That could be a physical pain; it could be a soul pain. So for this person if one of those three main areas are not getting addressed it is going to create a huge dis-balance, a huge conflict. For the person with ‘stress rings’, this ‘anxiety’ constitution – if they are not going to channel their energy and channel their anxiety into something which they can proactively address – the whole area of the anxiety – and to self-realise and to live their life; if this is not present then this is going to be main conflict. This is going to create a major dis-balance, a ‘gross dis-balance’. And this is something that you need to identify and you need to address it with your therapy. So again, in every session there should be something which will create a little tiny brick for this big building which we are building – of sustainable health – which will address the growth dis-balance, every single session. Even if it’s one point! So for example if somebody comes and say oh, “I want to be a teacher/ or public speaker/ I want to be a writer”. They want to express themselves; they want to express themselves in the external but they’re extremely shy. You can just give them a ‘Master of Voice’ (Colourpuncture point), every single session. It will take 30 seconds and it creates magic because it will be reinforced times and times and times again. So the next time they come you can see the change – cumulative effect of Colourpuncture – next time they come they are so flowing in their conversation; they’re full of creative projects and so so on. And this is how you know that your treatment worked. So sometimes it’s just a single point; sometimes it’s a combination or a couple of points – but you need to keep this in mind and not to be overly distracted by a current drama they present you with when they’re coming on a particular day. It’s not to say that you need to ignore the drama, of course you need to address the drama – however, you need to keep in mind this long term view. Because a long-term view will give you direction – and without direction we cannot make this one step. Because every session if you think about it you take Just One step and without knowing exactly in which direction you’re taking the step, you are leading the patient to take the step, you’re inviting their body to work on this particular thing, then obviously how do you know? You need to know the full picture, you need to know the long-term picture where you are going.”
