Nidus vespa anonymus = Nest. aus unbekanntem Holz + unbekannte Wespe.

 

An einem kaltem Märzmorgen um 6 h. saß ich am Computer und eine 14 jährige verließ das Haus unerwartet, sie möchte so gern selbständig sein und versucht ihr Glück. Wenig später flog ein Insekt an mir vorbei und ich wunderte mich, dass ein Insekt bei dieser Kälte schon unterwegs war. Noch ein wenig später werde ich von diesem Insekt 2x am nacktem Fuß gestochen ohne irgendwelche Feindseligkeiten meinerseits. Ich trug das Insekt (eine Wespe) aus dem Haus. Es ist ganz benommen. Auf meinem Spaziergang überlegte ich mir, dass die Jugendliche mit einer phobischer Angst vor Wespen doch gerne ein Wespennest verreiben könnte. Wir verreiben zur viert. 3 Jugendlichen: 12, 14, 16 Jahre alt und ich unter dem Motto „Selbst ist die Frau“/ein 4-jähriges Mädchen gesellt sich später zu uns.

 

Nächste Morgen: Nachts war ich nur 1x auf Toilette (letzte Nächten immer 2x). Werde sehr zufrieden wach. Eine alte Bänderriss, der schon einige Tagen wieder weh tat, fühlt sich intensiver, aber auch besser an. Kann einen neuen Vorschlag zur Gestaltung des Tages ohne weiteres annehmen.

Traum: Ich bin in eine Stadt unterwegs. Da = auch R. mit seiner Familie und unsere Sohn unterstelle ich. Ich hoffe die alle noch zu sehen zu bekommen. -------

Ich fahre auf einem Rad. Auf einem Platz stehen Tische und Stühle. Da sitzen und laufen Menschen alle im Schwarz. Eine Gruppe sehr orthodox gekleidete Männer fällt mir fahrend auf und ich denke einen zu kennen. Ich fahre auf dem Rad sitzend einen großen Bogen durch und um die Tische und schaue ob ich den Mann wirklich kenne. Dem ist nicht so. Ich fahre wirklich gekonnt und entdecke, ich fahre ohne den Lenker fest zu halten. Ich stutze im Anfang und will den Lenker doch noch greifen, aber das geht nicht wegen einem schwarzen Umhang der im Wege ist. - - - - ?Cimic?

Ich will zu einer Bank. Vor ich da bin komme ich an viele Leute vorbei. Einige Frauen machen gemeinsam eine Radtour. Dann gibt es einen Flohmarkt. An l. Seite steht eine Fassade einer zerbombte vornehme Häuserreihe, aber dahinter ist viel Betrieb. Einen Anlegeplatz für Schiffen. Dann kommt einen Deich und da findet einen jungen Mann eine Kinderleiche. Ich nehme sie hoch und da fehlt ein Bein und die inneren Organe sind weg gefressen worden. Einen Mann sagt: „Es ist ein Mondscheinkind (ein Kind was nicht in der Sonne kommen kann)“ - - - - -

Pläne werden geändert und noch mal geändert und es berührt mich nicht.

Ich habe 4x Stuhl an diesem Tag, ist aber keinen Durchfall.

„Gone“ Empfinden im Bauch/nach essen eines Apfels brennen im Magen.

„Wie Erkältung“ = Niesen/Schmerz in Kehle/friere leicht/Nase l. oft Ausfluss, muss immer wieder putzen/Ohren „Wie zu“/ l. Ohr tut noch eine Monat später weh mit Taubheit.

 

2e Abend Ohrschmerz l./quälend/Nase: Ausfluss + Juckreiz + brennen innerlich

V2 steht während ein Brettspiel auf 1x auf und macht eine Schranktür zu, die ein kleine Spalt aufstand. (1e Mal)/nächsten Tag: will sie eine Gast „foppen“/macht viel Mühe mit Erfolg

Abends nach Verreiben Halsschmerz

V3 hat nächsten Abend Halsschmerz/wird krank mit Kopfschmerz/erbrechen

 

4en Tag: Ich habe richtige Erkältung

V2 hatte gestern Abend Nasenbluten

V1 hat kaum Beschwerden positiv o. negativ. Ändert sich zu mehr Selbständigkeit/findet Lösungen selbst für sich und anderen

V3 hat 3en Tag im Bett gelegen mit Migräne

 

5en Tag:

Traum Ich bin auf einem unübersichtlichem Gelände. Es ist mir nicht klar was ich dort mache o. wo ich hin gehe. - - - - -

Ich besuche unsere Tochter mit ihrem Freund an dem Institut wo sie lernt. Wir gehen zur Mensa. Dort gibt es einen Aufzug. Der geht bis ins Dachgeschoss. Ich bestehe darauf den Aufzug zu benutzen.

Wir steigen aus und sitzen herum. Dort gibt es auch viele Ältern. - - - -

Ich bin im Dunklen und eine Unbekannte reicht mir die Hand. Ich weiß nicht ob ich die Hand annehmen soll - - - -

Ich bin in den Aufzug und fahre bis Dachgeschoss = ein Stockwerk. Ich steige nicht aus. - - - -

V2 hat Erkältung mit Schniefen.

 

Das kleine Mädchen hatte einen Kratzer durch eine Katze abbekommen, was eine großen entzündete Stelle (rot/geschwollen/heiß/mit Bell.-artiges Fieber) auf ihre Backen verursachte. Nach dem Verreiben würde es eine Streife und die Entzündung ist weg.

 

[Matilde Flores]

The proving took place in Maynard, MA, U.S. on October 1st 2011.

Remedy was prepared from a piece of yellow jacket paper nest. The substance was collected in British Columbia and the species identified as Vespula vulgaris by Michael G. Shepard, R.P.Bio.

There were 5 provers: 1 male and 4 females, ages 49 - 60, and 3 observers/supervisors. The complete Great Lakes Proving Protocol was followed.

Because the source of this remedy is the nest of an insect the proving will reflect aspects of the insect and the entire expression of the nest. The life cycle of the insect is contained within the nest, a fact that makes the nest and the wasp an inseparable unit.

 

Natural History

Vespula vulgaris, the common wasp, known in the US and Canada as yellow jacket, is a eusocial insect found in the Northern Hemisphere. It has been introduced to Australia and New Zealand.

Natural habitat dry grasslands and woodlands, but it easily adapts to urban environments.

The term eusociality is defined as a group of individuals living in a cooperative manner where one female and several males in the group are reproductively active and the non-breeding individuals (the working caste) care for the young, protect and provide for the group. This condition allows the eusocial groups to be biologically successful.

Nest building/Caste

The nests are built in the ground, attached to branches, under porches, in cracks in structures, or in the wall or ceiling of a building.

The raw material for the nest is a paper-like substance produced by the wasp from wood fibers that are chewed and mixed with saliva.

A yellow jacket queen begins building the nest in the spring. She feeds the larvae from the juice of masticated insects and continues to build the nest until enough adult workers emerge to take over the work of foraging for the colony, brood care, nest expanding, maintenance and defence. At this point the queen’s only job is reproduction. Until the end of the summer the colony consists of a queen and

a number (sometimes thousands) of sterile female workers

Mating/Sex/Reproduction

Social wasps reproduce by mating between a fertile queen and one or several males. The male sperm cells are stored inside the queen in a dormant state until needed the following spring when she starts building her nest.

The queen controls the release of sperm for each individual egg as it is laid, thus having voluntary control over the sex of her offspring. Female eggs are fertilized while male eggs are not.

At the end of the summer, the eggs produced will develop into reproductive females and male drones. The male drones fly out of the nest and find a mate. The young queens mate in the vicinity of their nest and will leave the nest at the onset of winter to find a sheltered location to hibernate. The rest of the colony dies off and the old nests are not used again.

Predatory/Aggressive behavior/Scavenging/Survival

Adults need food rich in sugars: fruit and flower nectar. The larvae feed on proteins: insects and meat. The workers chew and condition the protein for the larvae; in exchange the larvae secrete a material high in sugar that the adults need. As the colony expands the need is greater, potentially disrupting the ecosystems as they compete with other pollinators. Wasps scavenge in garbage cans or around humans eating at picnics, changing their food preferences to sodas, meats or ripe, decaying fruit.

They can use their stinger several times when threatened, but they kill their prey by biting rather than stinging them.

Proving Themes:

Water

Vespula uses its own body fluids in the form of saliva for nest building and in food conditioning for the larvae. A water source is always near the nest. Water was literally everywhere at the time of the proving due to recent severe weather conditions.

The themes of dreams and visions were: using water as a means of defence/aggression, a garden with beautiful waterfall, being upset at a neighbour who was dirtying the pool with debris, floating blissfully in a pool looking into the ocean, being on a boat and realizing that the water is rising but not alarmed, rather having fun.

Sex/Questioning Sexuality

All provers experienced heightened sexual feelings.

A female prover wrote in her notebook the letter M to indicate male. The same prover felt that women were attracted to her sexually and she asked: “Do I look gay to you?” She talked about a book on same sex relationships that focused on lesbian relationships. The next day she woke up thinking of a fellow she is attracted to, considering the idea of multiple partners and wrestling with the morality of it.

She had a “serious discussion with lesbian client (she was in denial of her lesbianism…but expressing her full love for a woman). Unable to admit to being a lesbian because her religion forbids homosexuality, yet extremely conflicted and torn about her marriage to her husband.”

In the area where the trituration took place there is a painting depicting two women (I always assumed they were mother and daughter) under a tropical tree offering each other the fruit of the tree (guava). One prover asked: “Is that painting a take on the Garden of Eden? Like the Garden of Eden for gay people? You know, two women with two snakes?” The guava fruit was painted in a way that look like snakes.)

A third prover: “This is the fountain of youth remedy.” Sex constantly on her mind.

Sexual dreams:

- With same sex partners.

- Questioning if heterosexual friend was in homosexual relationship.

- Of parents “cheating” on former spouses.

- Old male boyfriend and female friend with beautiful V-shaped muscular, perfect bodies.

- Males and females, fused just above the legs with bodies angled like an “X”, are line dancing. I feel warmth and swelling from my partner whom I don’t know...He’s a man, he cannot help it.

Prejudice/Assuming Prejudice

-“How to deal with prejudice?”

- Denying being clairvoyant to avoid people’s reaction and disapproval.

- Assuming prejudice from police, made a wide circle to avoid them while going to Occupy Boston.

Dreams:

- Children from Taiwan on the train...we speak in Chinese. They show amazement because others have treated them with prejudice.

- I look over to neighbour’s yard. There are some people from North Africa. They look back at me, worried that I might be prejudiced.

Hidden and Secret

- Wanting to be camouflaged, feeling invisible and wanting to be invisible.

- A secret so special, so disbelieved, and so misunderstood...when someone understands it, there is a sense of interconnectedness and belonging.

Dream:

With another woman, furtively hiding behind the garage. I sneak around to enter the house and get lots of food. Not sure if I am stealing. I return and tell the other woman that she does not need to go shopping. A man is looking for us but we are well hidden. - - - -

Cancer

A prover and two supervisors got news of two different friends diagnosed with cancer. A man selling newspapers near one prover’s office was suddenly gone. She was told that he died of throat cancer.

At the bank a prover noticed an appeal for help: Mother of newborn twins just diagnosed with stage four breast cancer.

Dream:

Friends who died of cancer are alive in her dreams. - - - - -

Survival/Death/Grief

Many people lost their homes and entire towns...survival was in the air.

Dream:

- In the wilderness in a boat, a guy is tormenting us. He is in a giant upside down hat, I am throwing water in it and he is sinking. I am just trying to protect us. I don’t want to kill him.

- A prover’s son told her the story of a young woman who died in the recent flood.

- Weeping and sadness were expressed

Connection to the Group and Safety in the Group

- Feeling gratitude because I feel safe. My silence is from feeling comfortable and safe.

- I feel like a kid. I do not have to play with others. Sitting by myself in my own little world.

Authority/Trust only One Another

On Sept. 17, 2012 Occupy Wall Street (OWS) started in New York City and led to protests around the world. The issues: Social and economic inequality, corruption and the influence of corporations on government. On October 5th OWS came to Boston.

 

There are well-documented instances of police brutality against the ‘Occupy’ movement.

 

A prover’s two sons got trapped in the recent flood in Vermont while camping. The police didn’t help them. A person who witnessed the interaction told them to go to the High School shelter.

A family at the shelter drove them home. “The biggest learning was to trust one another...the common people, not the police or the authority.”

A prover’s computer was stolen the day before the proving: “Going to the police was a waste of my time.”

“The Police are like my memory, not there when you need it.”

 

Drug State/Vortex of Energy

An aspect of the trituration had a drug quality to it: Staring into space; Staring and leaning sideways, making hand gestures of spiraling towards the colors on the tablecloth, talking about a vortex of energy; sensations as if her limbs did not belong to her and as if floating in the air.

For some, this state continued throughout the proving: “Caught staring in wonder at the wet glistening grass...feels like after a deep meditative state of wonder and awe at nature... As if not myself...”

Visions and dreams also illustrated this state.

 

Jealousy and Aggression

Dreams:

- Jealous that husband has a mistress who is pregnant with his baby. We went sailing. I intentionally tip the boat over and hold him down under water. I brought him up and bit him on his face.

- Acting aggressively while playing tennis.

Other themes:

- Color and light – Strong and intense experience of colors

- Good outcomes

- Innocence and Child

- Hard Work/Productivity/Excess Activity

- Indisposed to Talk

- Animals

Water!

A prover’s two sons got trapped in the recent flood in Vermont while camping. The police didn’t help them. A person who witnessed the interaction told them to go to the High School shelter.

A family at the shelter drove them home. “The biggest learning was to trust one another...the common people, not the police or the authority.”

A prover’s computer was stolen the day before the proving: “Going to the police was a waste of my time.”

“The Police are like my memory, not there when you need it.”

It is remarkable that the “OWS” movement started at the same time of the proving, which brings to mind the acronym of WASP: White Anglo-Saxon Protestant, a somewhat derogatory term to describe high-status whites wielding disproportionate financial and social power.

 

Case in point is the issue brought up by the prover who had a “serious discussion” with the client she perceives as being homosexual. This remedy will probably benefit such a case where, considering what is at stake, no alternative remains but to keep the issue as hidden from oneself as possible.
