Actinoides o. Actinide
Kind/Anhang: (Jan Scholten)
Anhang. (Deirdre Holmes/Patricia Le Roux)
The actinides, when transformed into homeopathic
potencies, are remedies of our times, where life seems to be speeding up and
old established systems are falling apart.
Being at the far end of the periodic table, with
the inherent tendency to decay, the Actinides correspond to the approach of
death, the release of the physical state, the transition from the material
realm into the realm of energy. In their raw state, the actinides, or
radioactive elements, have an immense capacity for destruction, either by
inducing genetic mutation and (fatal) illness, or from the effects of nuclear
weapons or fallout from nuclear plants. The destruction can take place at an
as in the case of nuclear weapons, where a few
powerful people have the decisive power to wipe out entire cities within
moments. The damage can also have far reaching effects both in space and time,
with winds carrying radioactivity far from the original site, and illnesses
occurring long after the event. The insidious nature of radioactivity becomes apparent in
illnesses where the origin is often untraceable, showing up only years later as
deep-seated illnesses of, for instance, the bone marrow and the blood.
Conversely, the actinides also have the capacity to bring about healing, in the
form of radiation therapy and as homeopathic remedies.
The states requiring Actinide remedies are
powerfully charged. Actinides’ patients can feel fragile and unstable, in a
continuous state of chaos and threatened disintegration. Physically, there can
be severe pathologies or malformations, often genetic. The person may feel like
they are living in a wasteland, between life and death, as might in fact
be the case.
Emotionally, the situation can be equally charged,
with the person talking of “exploding”, “falling apart” or “crumbling”. The
ailments can stem from an unknown source, events that may have taken place long
ago or far away, perhaps in previous generations or past lives. This can
include the results of overwhelming violence, that which has shattered someone
core. There can be a sense of carrying the “sins
of the fathers”, and a need to compensate by being of great service to mankind.
While those in an Actinide state who are ruled by
their shadow can cause untold harm to others, those who have delved deep into
their unconscious, in their search for transformation can be the “wounded
healer” for others, with capacities that are not restricted by time or space.
Clairvoyance is not uncommon among Actinide people, as
is the desire, and the ability, to heal with
energy, often from a distance. This highly charged state requires an enormous
vigilance for the person, in order to maintain their physical and emotional
well-being, involving times of quiet, solitude, and often a spiritual practice.
Many of the actinides explode when exposed to air, so immersion in
water (baths) is also necessary and helpful. They
often need to be careful around electronic equipment, as it may malfunction in
their presence: computers break down,
wrist watches stop, and even glass is known to
shatter. Relationships can also be volatile.
On the other hand, there can be wisdom far beyond
one’s years, evident even in small children who have the capacity to “counsel”
In these times, our world is facing “Actinides’
circumstances”. We have discovered the potential of the radioactive substances,
both for good and for harm. We are like the sorcerer’s apprentice, knowing a
little about power and magic, but nevertheless capable of destroying ourselves
by lack of wisdom. We are rapidly depleting our resources
and polluting the very earth that sustains us. Our
capacity for inflicting destruction on each other has never been so great and
yet, more and more people are seeking a deep
and true healing, delving into themselves and
transforming their own lives into channels of awareness, for themselves and for
the world at large. The Actinides, in their correspondence with these extreme
states, are able to help many take this transformative step. In this, they are
similar to the Lanthanides, with which they are often confused, and also to the
gem remedies. Just as with the actinides in their material form, however, the
Actinide remedies require cautious use. With their ability to work at a very
deep level, they usually need very little repetition; over-application and
injudicious use can in fact prove harmful.
Margriet Plouvier-Suijs shares her extensive
experience of the Actinide remedies. She has learned to recognise these states
not only in The Last Series their severe forms, but in their subtle earlier
manifestations as well, so that we can learn to prescribe these remedies before
someone becomes so disastrously ill. She has included cases from other
colleagues as well, broadening our knowledge and experience of these remedies.
“The Last Series of the Periodic Table“
The Actinides belong to the 7th series of the
periodic table. Jan Scholten uses the word Uranium Series in his book
«Homeopathy and the Elements».
Francium and Radium are the first two elements of
series. Actually these two elements don’t belong to the Actinides; they differ
Actinium is the 3rd element in the series;
Actinium has element number 89. The elements numbered 89 (Actinium) up to103
(Lawrencium) are Actinides.
In summary the themes of the series. in Jan Scholten’s book.
Archetype: the testifier, the joker, the clown,
the lightning conductor, the prophet
Congenital deviations, genetic deviations.
*The hidden camera
Jan Scholten has literally dis-covered the
Lanthanides for us; as homeopathic remedies they were previously unknown. In
Boericke there is only one: Cerium oxalicum.
In Jans book «Secret Lanthanides» he explains the
main theme of the Lanthanides, which is autonomy. Other themes are searching,
going deep, reflection. I would like
to add analysis and thinking to the themes he
People who need Actinides do not use analysis.
Whatever they observe is transparent; they know, insight and overview is there
at the same moment. For that reason I
compare this observing with the use of a hidden
Observing is pure and objective.
These qualities of observation we learn in our
profession as therapists. For practising homeopathy Hahnemann recommends this
objective observation. In our profession it
is a quality, but in daily life this quality can
cause big problems. In daily life this objective observation of how people deal
with each other can be a painful difficulty because
of the sense of liability.
Again and again the question comes up: ‘what to do
with the insight, the overview and knowing?’ If all the tricks and playing
games in human behaviour are transparent,
how should we react? The only way to live with
this quality is to improve compassion.
Aetiology: the broken mirror
Children are most illustrative in showing the
picture of Actinides. There is usually an aetiologic moment in their life. I
call this moment: ‘breaking the mirror’.
Development in the first year of life:
Rapidly after birth the baby has eye contact with
one of the parents, usually with some kind of recognition. From that first eye
contact the baby uses ‘imitating mimicry’.
The parent and the baby reflect each other.
Initially the child identifies itself in this mirroring face.
At the age of nine months the child is able to
distinguish faces and indicates its preference, this is the period of timidity.
The child develops the ability to remember the favourite face and give it
a name, Mummy, Daddy. Thanks to memory the child
becomes aware of more than one face at the same time, mummy and daddy. This is
the awareness of the triangle:
father, mother and child. Up to that time the
child was one unit with the mother. In the unity communication is non-verbal.
At the time the child is aware of the triangle,
it begins to talk. Thanks to the awareness of the
triangle the child will recognise his own individuality. At the age of three
years the child uses the word ‘I’ for himself.
At the same age the milk teeth are complete, the
fontanel is closed, the child is able to jump (on the ground) and he says “I”:
I want and I don’t want.
In the course of the first years everything the
child does is learned by imitation. In that mirror it recognises itself. When,
however, there is a dramatic event in those early years and the parents cannot
handle the situation, the mirror can be broken. From that moment on the child
will no longer imitate the parents.
At that moment Opium or Aconitum or another remedy
layer can come or cover up.
If the remedy that is needed is an Actinide,
something else will happen at the moment of the dramatic event. Let us look at
the moment of the first eye contact between mother and child; this is the
moment of recognition. We are able to recognise someone we used to know in a
former life. If we, as human beings, reincarnate it is possible that the mother
recognises the newborn child and vice versa. Sometimes the reincarnation is one
of an old soul. At the moment of a dramatic event, the moment the parents are
not able to handle the situation, the reincarnated part of the child takes the
lead in the child’s life. The personality that learns ‘’how to do’’ by
imitating others, babies-instinct, will disappear. From that moment on the
identity of that wise old person awakens in the child.
That person will help the parents to return to
normal, but afterward it is possible that this state continues in the child.
This is visible in the social behaviour and in the language the child uses.
New words heard by him or her are immediately used
in the correct context. For instance; a mother said to her two-year-old
daughter: “You shouldn’t show off,” and the little girl answered:
“No, actress, no!” The disadvantage for the child
in this condition is that his childish expression disappears; for the mother it
is not appropriate to have this wise guy on her lap.
After the correct use of the Actinide remedies for
these children they regain their childish behaviour.
In the history of adults who need an Actinide, I have
seen this trauma in their childhood and the disadvantage of growing up in such
a state. As infant or toddler they lost contact with their own inner child.
They have no experience of quarrelling or standing up for themselves. The ‘wise
elder person’ inside them did not allow that kind of childish behaviour. For
adults the correct application of an Actinide ‘brings the child back’ to life.
From that moment on a process develops in which there is the growing of
a resistance, like children during early childhood.

Strictly speaking Radium isn’t one of the
Actinides. It stands at 2nd place in the seventh series of the periodic table.
Marie Curie-Sklodowska discovered the element in 1898. The element was
extracted from pitchblende. Before Radium, she extracted Thorium from
pitchblende, but Gerardt Schmidt in Berlin, who published about it 2 months
before, had already discovered this element.
Radium is known for different purposes: as well as
Radium is used in drinking and bathing water.
Other exotic examples are: an electric blanket impregnated with Radium, a
radioactive corset to treat rheumatoid arthritis and even more extreme: a
remedy made from an extract of monkey testicles and Radium to cure impotency.
Radium is found in cosmetic creams as well.
The effect of the radiation by Radium on the skin
was obvious very quickly: erythema, redness of the skin as if it was burnt,
then healed spontaneously, leaving a depigmented scar. The handling of Radium
sources caused the skin to burn on the fingertips, finally leading to
carcinoma. Except for Pierre Curie, who died in an accident, all the people
working with radioactive elements in those days died from malignant diseases.
In 1950 Radium was progressively replaced by
artificial radioisotopes e.g. iridium 192, caesium 137, cobalt 60, iodine 125.
Radium has been abandoned for radiation protection difficulties.

They communicate very carefully. A topic will be
introduced, but they leave it to the partner in the discussion to take it or to
do something about it. They seek the contact
and abandon it, as if every word that might be
said would be too much. They are insecure in communication and they let the

The uncertainty of stage 2 is expressed by
withdrawing. As a bystander they don’t mix in the situation because they feel
uncertain; they prefer to be the observer.
Overview, transparency: never take anything for
They do recognise the motivations of the behaviour
of others as well as of themselves, but they continuously need to test their
own analysis. Even what they learn from others, is tested. This is how they
seek continual confirmation, still trying not to show themselves or their own
opinion and ideas.
Sensitivity, sympathy, compassion: keeping silence
They are very sympathetic, knowing and being able
to feel the emotions that fit the circumstances. They try to put their emotion
on the other, because they are too uncertain
to show it themselves.
Universal truth: keep silence
They are uncertain about the difference between
their own interest and the general interest. They do not clearly state that
there is a general interest; it remains unspoken.
Others criticise them for not making things clear
and this confuses them.
Old age, grandparent
All of this mainly fits old age. At the end of
life people are experienced, which makes them able to relativise, contemplate
and let it be. Like a grandparent they withdraw. They don’t intercede.

Etiology of the Actinide:
At the moment of a dramatic event,
the moment the parents are not able to handle the situation this incarnating
part in the child takes the lead in the child’s life.
The personality that learns how to do
by imitating others (= babies-nature) will disappear. From that moment on the
identity of that old wise person raises in the child.
That person will help the parents to
come to themselves, but afterwards it is possible that this state in the child
continues. The disadvantage for the child in this condition
is that his childish expression

The actinides or radioactive
elements, belong to the 7th and final row of the periodic table; they relate to
extreme or final stages of life, and the ailments of these times.
In physical form, these substances
have immense capacity to destroy, by inducing serious or fatal illness or from
the effects of nuclear weapons or from their capacity to
pervert the course of natural
existence via damaging genetic change.
Paradoxically, they can too offer
hope for life, through radiotherapy treatment for disease, medical imaging for
pathology that would otherwise be hidden, and in homeopathic usage. These
extremes of life and death are part of actinides’ themes. The realms they are
used for may not be physical: their challenges may involve extremes of
emotional or psychological suffering, the quest for spiritual survival in the
face of enormous odds and when the costs are huge. If the battle is won,
however, the gains are great, releasing the patient from a life that is lived
on the edge or in shadow, captive to conditions that may seem hopeless or
insurmountable. Often, they can emerge with greater resilience
or creativity; sometimes their emergence
from the suffering is miracle enough in itself.
This huge polarity between the
expression of health and disease is a feature of the actinides and as in
keeping with their position in the periodic table; not for them the smaller
scale, more personally based stories of the higher series. The actinides have
pathologies that can seem utterly intransigent and may have their origins far
away in time and space; the sinister instigating influences untraceable, the
protagonists faceless and unknown. Their stories may include genetic disorders,
the effects of intergenerational and intercultural violence and abuse,
suffering from nuclear, electromagnetic, or environmental pollution, or trauma
buried deep in the subconscious from this lifetime or others. The abuse may be
on a corporate or government scale and cross boundaries of nationality and
terrain. The sufferers or their descendants may never encounter their abusers,
as in the situation of victims of nuclear war, accidents, or testing
(Hiroshima, Chernobyl, the Pacific, and so on). Disorders may take decades to
emerge and be slow to develop, as in the case of radiation induced cancer or
psychological trauma from previous abuse. The full effects of the situation may
not reveal itself for generations to come. The pathology may be deep in the
body, hidden from view - bone marrow disorders, for example – insidiously
affecting blood and immunity, the markers of life force and its defence
All actinides are in a state of fast
or slow decay (as described by their half lives) and of transformation from one
element into another. This transformation is artificially achieved in nuclear
reactors with the creation of plutonium, the best known and most powerful of
the actinides, from uranium. Plutonium was named after Pluto, the final planet
known in the solar system at that time. (Interestingly, another name proposed
for plutonium was ultimium - ‘the ultimate element’). Plutonium is found at
stage 8, which is concerned with struggle and exercise of power, and most exemplifies
the story of the actinides. In Roman and Greek mythology, Pluto was the god of
the underworld, the dead, and riches. He was an all-powerful black-clad
autocrat, merciless and jealous, separate from the other gods. His kingdom was
a cold dark shadowy underground realm that was home to the dead, who gave up
all rights and personal power on entering his domain. He ruled his world
absolutely and could not be appeased or bargained with. He fell in love with
his niece Persephone, daughter of Ceres, and despite opposition abducted her by
force, compelling her to live with him in the underworld, the land of shadows,
for a portion of the year. This devastation and loss to the world created
winter, where all life seems to cease. Persephone’s return to the world at the
end of winter signals the regeneration of spring, and life begins again. Thanks
to Pluto’s cunning deception, however, Persephone is condemned to return to the
underworld at the end of every autumn, and so the cycle endlessly repeats. Pluto
is also known as Hades, ‘the Invisible’. He is the god of riches, referring to
the vast storehouse of mineral reserves and mines underground, which is also
home to the actinides.
This story is rich with imagery
describing the themes of the actinides: abuse of power and position, loss,
devastation, amorality, profound transformation, inexorability, cruelty, death,
and transgression of boundaries both moral and physical. There is powerlessness
but the return to life as power is regained. We see the conflict between light
and dark, sacred and profane. Ruthless selfish ego, acting from base or lower
self motives, wreaks havoc with far reaching and unforeseen consequences for
many. The challenge for the actinides is to exercise power with higher selfless
motives, for the good of all, and to conquer the dominion of their shadow
It is no accident that the discovery
of the actinides and their applications parallels the development of modern
psychotherapy, with its acknowledgement of self versus shadow, conscious versus
The power of an unacknowledged shadow
can be immensely destructive, until the light of consciousness is shone upon
it. Often, actinides patients are struggling with either the darkness in their
own subconscious or the trauma created by the actions of another’s shadow. Patients
may describe an immense sense of burden, responsibility, or karma; the ‘sins of
the fathers’ and issues passing through generations. The lanthanides can also
have this struggle and desire to develop consciousness, but it is less intense
and their sense of self is more ambivalent, less vanquished or overreaching. For
the actinides, the struggle to free oneself from the effects of this oppression
can be immense but the rewards of this liberation are profound. The riches are
in the form of self-knowledge and personal empowerment, and the ability to
We also see themes of isolation, not
necessarily by choice, which may in patients be dictated by illness or complete
breakdown and vulnerability. The patient may be reclusive and feel not at ease
in the world. In a healthy actinide, withdrawal, time out, or a formal
spiritual retreat may still be necessary to maintain equilibrium and peace. They
may need to remove themselves totally from their environment, in order to heal
or re-find themselves.
Actinides are fragile, volatile
elements, in a state of transition and decay, and prone to spontaneously
setting alight in contact with the air. This describes the fragile, unstable,
and combustible patient, whose life can feel in a constant state of
instability, chaos, and threatened disintegration. This energy may communicate
to energy or power sources around them and electronic devices may be prone to
breaking down, light-bulbs shattering, and glass breaking. Actinides as a group
may have relationships to gem. remedies, the lanthanides. or aurum. series, the
Anacardium and the AIDS nosode.
Illnesses are extreme and involve
huge loss of power, function, and freedom. Actinides patients may feel as if
they are living in a wasteland, or on the edge of existence. They may feel not
of this world, somewhere between life and death, as indeed they may really be. Often,
they have a translucent quality, or etherealism, not uncommon in those
approaching the end of life, or those with clairvoyant or mediumistic
For them the veil between this world
and others is thin, barriers disappear, and the invisible and hidden becomes
visible. The world of spirit may be more real than the physical plane they
inhabit, and they may struggle to be fully incarnate. These are also the
remedies of those with abilities to see, move energy, or heal at a distance. They
may see their work as the payment of a debt of some kind and can show enormous
devotion to helping others in their healed state. The challenge is to find
their ability to live in this world, to transform and regenerate.
Actinides the 7th of the periodic system
The hidden camera and the broken
mirror Six years ago during a course, I presented all I knew about the remedy
Uranium. Over the years I have learned much more about the remedy and about
other remedies of the Uranium-series:
I know Radium, Thorium, Neptunium and
Plutonium as homeopathic remedies as well. Because of my own constitution I
might be sensitive to recognize these pictures.
I will describe the Uraniumseries as
a group and explain the possible etiology of the remedy-picture. The Actinides
are the 7th series of the periodic system.

with such sharp language. In the Actinides however, there is no competitive
all like in Lach.
They are wise, not in the sense of
clever, they have a wisdom which shows insight. The appropriate sense is
intuition. They are clairvoyant and sometimes they simply know. They recognize
if intuition is colored by emotion and know the truth.
To observe, to perceive:
They see through people and their
actions. They are adapted to several cultures and they will seldom be surprised
about what happens. They can imagine every life-event even the most
The aim of living is to try to be in
peace with each other. In the cycles of lives a quality has different stages:
we are victim, actor, indicter, judge, defender, we are condemned and finally
we regret. People who need an Actinide know these stages and do not have any
judgment. In observing the judgment is absent.
They observe as if everything is
transparent. They understand what is going on at the moment they see it. They
do not filter. This way of looking at things is like using a hidden camera. People
of old age and little children observe the world around them in this way. The
similarity of elder people and children is that they do not react on the world
they observe, they have no emotion about it, they are objective and just
watching. Observing is pure and objective.
The high age belongs to this series. In
old age it is appropriate to be withdrawn and present. They do not intervene.
Physical complaints: Cancer, bone
marrow disorders, leukemia. Congenital deviations, genetic deviations.

I would like to add analysis and
thinking to the themes he describes. People who need Actinides do not use
analysis. What ever they observe is transparent; they know, insight and
there at the same moment. That is the
reason for me to compare this observing with the use of a hidden camera. Observing
is pure and objective. These qualities of observation we are intent to
learn in our profession as a
therapist. For practicing homeopathy H. recommends this objective observation. In
our practice it is a quality, but in daily life this quality can cause big
In daily life this objective
observation of how people deal with each other can be a painful charge because
of the sense of liability. Again and again the question comes up: ‘what to do
with the insight, the overview and knowing?’ If all the tricks and playing
games in human behavior are transparent, how to react?
Case: Uranium arsenicicum
A little girl at the age of 20 months
visits my clinic for complaints since the age of 10 months: she has eczema in
little spots and has attacks of vomiting. She spits very explosive and
1 - 4 or 5x weekly. She spits without
reason, but also when she is angered or during a cough. Every deviation of
daily routine leads to more and more frequent vomiting. If she vomits she looks
vaguely, her face is very pale, her eyelids are red. She remains active, but
takes rest from time to time. She has no appetite and takes no food. During
pregnancy her mother had high blood pressure and physically it was not easy. After
37 weeks of pregnancy the delivery was induced. She breastfed her daughter for
7 months and everything was fine, but she had some fever after vaccinations.
At the age of 10 months she felt sick
and 3 hospitalizations followed: The first because of a gestation with the R.S.
virus, the second because of pneumonia, and the third because of the vomiting. The
course of the first hospitalization was dramatic: she arrived in the hospital
in a bad condition and her respiration became worse and worse. At the end she
was passive. The parents gave a big alarm, but nobody reacted to them. After a
long time the baby was given oxygen and slowly recovered. The parents felt
forsaken and powerless at that moment.
The little girl has a strong will. She
plays her own game. If someone else plays with her and takes over from her she
stops playing and will start to do something else. She does not accept
guidance. She is capricious while playing. She is very good at observation and
imitates afterward. She is very sensitive to noise. She prefers company and she
panics if she is left alone. It is remarkable that
she knows all the children in the
nursery by name. She is neat and likes to wash her hands.

much more fantasy. The mother says: “Now she is a child that I can take on
my lap!” She only has vomited once. Her
anniversary passed: it was a busy day but everything was OK.
Her mother lost her job. The
repeating illnesses of the little girl forced her to stay home and her boss did
not accept this. Now she has two children and likes to take care of them.

Die Actinoide (früher: Actinide) sind
silbrig-glänzende, durchwegs radioaktive Metalle. Sie sind äußerst reaktionsfreudig
und oxidieren sehr schnell an Luft. Mit Wasser reagieren sie unter Freisetzung
Nur die ersten fünf Actinoiden -Thorium,
Protactinium, Uran, Neptunium und Plutonium- kommen auf der Erde natürlich vor.
Die beiden letzten sind Zerfallsprodukte von Uran. Alle darauf folgenden
transuranischen Elemente wurden erst nach 1940 künstlich erzeugt.
Jan Scholten: Thulium gives up
autonomy for the sake of gaining Self. What could this mean? Well, he adds that
giving up their personality is their Achilles heel. Its much more than backing
down out of politeness like Phos. Is it yielding the ultimate... submission?
What kind of submission?
Loss, Surrender, Handing over,
sacrificing and refusing.

Lanthanoide + Actinoide gehören zu den Metalle.
Allerlei: werden seltene Erde genannt, sind aber
nicht wirklich selten.
