Joy Lucas' proving: Extreme concern regarding children, in a protective way (regarding social and political issue). This theme of protection is also apparant in its traditional role - of warding off spirits. A prover described herself as a wicked witch. There is the excitement that is typical of the Lamiales but also profound fatigue, a feeling that if you go to sleep you will never wake up. The excitement goes as far as discouragement and a sense of dread, with an accelerated heart rate. Your dreams seem unrealisable. The mental fogging produces accidents such a locking your keys in the car. There is diminished libido.

The excited state has a sense of adventure and of moving forward. There is also calmness and a sense of being protected.

There is anxiety and sadness. The heart feels full or heavy and the heartbeat can speed up or slow down. The heart sensation is of something pinching. There was a catching sensation in the stomach. Stabbing pains in the shoulder as if by knitting needles. The skin feels icy cold.

Rajan's theme: bonds/connection seems to be expressed here as protection and giving comfort. Courage and discouragement may be dependent on the feeling of protection.

The miasm seems to be Tubercular - Rajans Miasms: Sense of adventure and danger. There is much to be done. Activity and burnout; (Stage 6). The duty to children could suggest a mineral analogue in the Ferrum series (Kaliums, Calciums etc). The muriaticums and Lacs also share some of these themes;
