Puls.: Often an acute remedy for children who need Silica or Calcarea carbonica constitutionally.
The development of the Pulsatilla dependency state may be precipitated by various early life experiences. These may even be prenatal. Rejection or separation from parental love are potent causes and may give rise to life long feelings of being forsaken or abandoned. It may commence whilst still in the uterus due to the mother’s conscious or unconscious rejection of the pregnancy. Much to the disappointment of the parents the baby may be the wrong sex. Many other reasons for lack of bonding and separation may play a role – incubation, failure to breast-feed, post-natal depression, infant or maternal ill health, adoption, working mother, divorce and parental death. Such a child is likely to develop recurrent Pulsatilla infections. They become high care children, constantly weeping, whining, whimpering and wailing, demanding attention and nurturing, wanting to be carried, cuddled and held close and intolerant of being left alone or losing contact. They suffer separation fear.
Excessive parental care, love and protection may be a cause. The Pulsatilla child becomes addicted to the warmth and security of such intense parental love. Often the mother herself is a Pulsatilla, dependent on the emotional and sentimental satisfaction of lavishing love on her dependent infant. She may encourage and prolong the period of dependency by delaying weaning, persisting with inappropriate baby talk, dressing the child in clothes too young for its age. A state of infantilism is encouraged.
Paradoxically lack of love is an equally potent cause of eliciting the Pulsatilla state. A child growing up in an environment devoid of love and care, or when such attention is qualified and dependent on behaviour acceptable to strict parents, develops a deep sense of insecurity and the belief that love and care must be bought through certain behaviour. There is often the feeling that they are not worthy, loveable or valuable, with damage to their sense of identity. They develop a desperate need for love from whatever source possible and by whatever means possible and once achieved they will cling to it desperately. They will produce whatever behaviour is necessary to win the security and affection they crave. They may become model children, unnaturally well behaved, neat and tidy, always fearing that any misdemeanour may alienate them from parental love. These behaviour patterns persisting into adolescence and adulthood expose the archetype to manipulation and victimisation. “I’ll be whoever you want me to
be - just love me!”
They are full of fears, especially of separation, rejection, betrayal, being forsaken, being alone, of the dark, dogs, ghosts, dentists and doctors, the opposite sex, people, particularly strangers, of what people will think of them, unfamiliar situations and surroundings. These fears are worse at twilight and may last a lifetime.
To the dependent child maturity and responsibility are not welcome; they are frightening. They resist taking responsibility for their lives and subconsciously resist maturation. This is more conspicuous in girls than in boys. These mild, weepy girls suffer delayed puberty, and when the periods finally begin they are often late or very irregular.
Even when the menses are established they are easily suppressed.
In similar manner all the sequential functions of womanhood and motherhood may be repressed, producing celibacy, infertility, abortion, miscarriage, and, in pregnancy, malpresentation, protracted labour, uterine inertia, retained placenta, milk failure. Sometimes Aphrodite is not denied but welcomed. In response to dependent need, often lack of love at home, the Pulsatilla body buds early with sensual promise, like the flower, a siren call for love and identity. It does not matter whom they are dependent upon as long as there is just someone.
In response to the circumstances they experience, they will shift their dependency or obsession from parents, to a member of the opposite or same sex, from one relationship to another, to a marriage partner, from one marriage to another, to their own children, to some strange belief about food, anorexia, bulimia, promiscuity or celibacy, or to some cult or religion. Despite their indecisiveness and inconstant nature, once fixed upon some dependency or strange notion, they are rigid and immovable. Fanaticism is the most crystallised form of Pulsatilla dependency. It is their extreme defence against insecurity.
[John Henry Allen]
Unwillkürlichen Harnabgang sobald es schlafen geht.
Schwierigkeiten mit natürlichen Abnabelungsprozessen eines Kindes wie Geburt, Abstillen, Kindergarteneingewöhnung (ab dem entwicklungspsychologisch vertretbaren Alter von 3 Jahren!), eines der ersten Mittel, an das wir bei Ohrenentzündung bei Kindern denken müssen, besonders, wenn sie in der Zeit der Abenddämmerung beginnen, immer weinerlich, aber sehr Mitleid heischend und mild gestimmt, nicht so zornig wie Chamomilla
Tears are water and that equals emotions. As Venus wept over the body of her lover, Adonis, who had been killed, Pulsatilla (anemones) sprang up where her tears touched
Ah! Hello, Sorry I didn’t see you there. I was just reading through Misha Norland’s lecture on Pulsatilla before the start of our tour, but now you’re here, so let’s get started.
Follow me this way. The path to finding Pulsatilla leads us on the ups and downs much like the changeability of Pulsatilla’s emotions. Oh, watch your step, it’s dark here–darkness is what one experiences, after all, when one is all alone in the world, as Pulsatilla imagines that she is (Delusion: alone, that she is always).*
Hush now! Be very quiet as Pulsatilla gets afraid easily (Mind: frightened, easily) so we must approach carefully; fright can cause them their ailments. (MIND: AILMENTS FROM FRIGHT)
The cries you hear in the distance? That’s Pulsatilla. The sad weeping sound, it’s like someone who has lost their love. (MIND: CRYING, PITIOUS). We must be getting closer.
Ahh good! Now on the right here, if you observe down through this gap we see the timid and even childish pulsatillas. If I open this gap a little wider you can view them clearly. As you can see, they
wear their hearts on their sleeves. The lovely pulsatilla is gentle and yielding (Mind: Yielding, passive, can’t say “no”, too yielding).
Firstly let’s look at them as a group. You can see that some are crying to relieve their suffering (MIND: CRYING > SYMPTOMS) and some are connecting with others by being attentive
(Mind: Openhearted), some are being kind and loving (MIND: AFFECTIONATE) but then there are others who are at the end stage of pulsatilla’s condition. They have become loners, introverted and too frightened of the hard, harsh world (Mind: company, aversion to). Yes! You’re right, Pulsatilla is very changeable! They vary from one moment to the next and ohhh…over there, that one is devoted to her religious prayers (Mind: Religious affections).
This offers them the security and the stucture they so lack. You see, Pulsatilla is called “the wind flower”, because they are so easily tossed this way and that by the wind, not able to take a firm stand. Rigid beliefs can be a way for them to stay anchored.
Pulsatilla’s passive, mild nature gives her a softness that draws out the sympathy of others. Only in the final stages of pulsatilla will you see disconnectedness and isolation.
They behave with affection and will give attention but mostly in the hope of receiving it in return. Is needy and may appear greedy and jealous (MIND: JEALOUSY, AILMENTS FROM).
It is as if there were a big hole inside that they just can’t fill no matter how hard they try. They will ask, “Do you love me?” over and over again. Over there you can see a pulsatilla girl being cuddled that makes everything better, even for the adults, being consoled is what they love best (MIND: CLINGY, HELD, WANTS TO BE). But this little blonde haired blue eyed girl we have been watching for a few days, she has pains–wandering pains, and we are concerned. She is thirstless, which is typical for Pulsatilla, and no two stools are alike -changeable, you know-
and has had a yellowish to yellow-green, bland discharge coming from her nose. Also, as the pains get worse, she gets colder. Mum understands her and knows that warm temperatures are intolerable to her and takes her out in the cold fresh air to help her condition as well as ensuring she is lying on the painful side as this seems to help the situation.
Pulsatillas desire cold food and they loathe fat–but don’t confuse that with butter, which they actually love, as well as ice cream, though they may regret having eaten it later (Desires +/o. <).
If you turn to your right you can see a pulsatilla man waking from sleep. If I know pulsatilla correctly he will have a white coated tongue and will feel unrefreshed from his sleep (Sleep: unrefreshing), as he would have taken a long time to get to sleep from the night before (Sleep: Insomnia, night, midnight, until, fixed thoughts [from]).
As you can see he sleeps on his back with his hands above his head or behind his head.
I would like to conclude this part of the pulsatilla exhibit with a sweet flower myth of the sympathetic, weeping, pulsatilla. The pulsatilla speaks of being forsaken. The jealous Greek goddess Flora turned the nymph Anemone into a windflower when she had attracted the attention of her husband, Zephyr. He abandoned Anemone; leaving her blowing in the wind.2/ So there you have it, that is Pulsatilla! Now where to next?
But why? Can’t you see they don’t want to be disturbed? Maybe next time.
If you have children, you’ll be wanting to keep this remedy near by, because it will cure most of the ailments that children have (measles, chicken pox, mumps, colds, conjunctivitis), it’s because most children “are” Pulsatilla!
By that we mean, they have the Pulsatilla personality, the Pulsatilla mentals and emotionals, which become exaggerated when they’re sick.
Think of the typical sick child: clingy, sad, wanting to be held and reassured; this is the essence of Pulsatilla. So no matter what the illness is, when you see the neediness, the big sorrowful eyes, and the amelioration from being held and reassured, you can be certain that Pulsatilla will do the job.
What is Pulsatilla anyway? It’s a delicate flower. It sits on a very fine stem that is tossed and turned whichever way the wind blows and hence, is called the “Wind Flower”. This tells you all you need to know about the Pulsatilla personality. This flower lacks strength, just like the small child who must depend on his parents for protection.
Shana builds a house.
The theme of Pulsatilla is to latch on to a strong supportive adult and not let go.
Pulsatilla children will become anxiety-ridden as soon as they can’t see the parent anymore–as soon as the parent is no longer in sight. They won’t last long in this situation and will start searching to make sure the parent
is still there and hasn’t left them alone–Fear Of Abandonment, in short, fear of being forsaken, and so Pulsatilla’s life focus is on the whereabouts of mom: does mom still love him, how much does mom love him, is there
an interloper stealing the attention and affection of mom, and so on; so, you can gather that these children are jealous, stingy, won’t share (can’t bear to suffer a loss) and may ask, “Do you love me?” over and over again!
Their security is their primary focus, so they are ever-mindful of where the parent is, and that he, the child, is getting the attention and acknowledgment–the love–that will allow him to relax and feel safe. They can’t tolerate the smallest criticism or reprimand; for them, it means they are no longer loved. They will persist in some form of attention-getting behavior until they are satisfied that they are again the center of attention, the sole object of Mom
and Dad’s affection. Some of this attention-getting behavior might be quite obnoxious! Pouting, crying, whining, breaking things to be noticed, creating a scene, feeling sorry for themselves, behaving irritably, and so on; the point being that they won’t let a slight, snub or rebuff go by. It won’t be allowed to stand.
As long as Pulsatilla feels loved, she can be perfectly content basking in the serenity of parental affection. They will be joyful and charming.
If the parents fight, this will be very frightening and he will play peace-maker to try to get them to reconcile. They cannot bear disharmony.
Strangers will frighten them at first but as soon as they get the idea that the stranger is safe, they will become the stranger’s best friend–bringing toys to show off, showing off dance routines, reciting lines from school plays;
Pulsatillas are very sociable and thrive in company.
At night, expect the Pulsatilla child to climb into bed with you. Being separated at night, for them, is too much! They fear the dark and ghosts.
You can’t talk about Pulsatilla without talking about “crying”! It’s a pathetic cry, not a cross/angry cry like that of Chamomilla. Their cry says, “Please help me.” This is what they’re known for; of course, this is what children
are known for in general -crying easily, whether it’s from rejection, anger or because they’re tired; but here’s the thing to remember about Pulsatilla- he or she is easily reassured! If you pick the Pulsatilla child up and reassure him,
the crying will stop and he’ll feel better; and he won’t dwell on the matter further, the way other remedies, such as Nat-m., will.
This remedy is gentle, yielding, affectionate, eager to please, dependent, emotional and very needy. Pulsatillas do not hold back their emotions. When Pulsatilla children are under stress, they will regress. They may want
to nurse again and otherwise act like a baby.
Some physical symptoms of Pulsatilla:
*< Warm rooms! They’re much better out in the fresh air. Even if they’re chilly, will still be < in a warm stuffy room.
*Usually thirstless, especially when you would expect a person to be thirsty, like during a fever or when the mouth is dry.
*Thick, bland discharges; yellow or green.
*Complaints are worse at twilight.
*Changeable symptoms. Think of how the Pulsatilla flower is tossed and turned by the wind every which way; hence, Pulsatilla symptoms can appear to be all over the map–the pain is here, now it’s over here…the discharge changes colors; the menstrual cycle is irregular, the moods change suddenly, and so on.
