This young five year old boy‘s case is relayed by his mother and we won’t use his name because of his age.
Apparently he is very clever young man, reading, doing grade two, maths and many other things well beyond his age group. A problem has become apparent since starting Prep: that he is different and he doesn’t want to be. He displays this by’ hanging out’ only with the kids that want to play and do nothing else. He has become very serious and not interested in anything.
Arrangements had been made for him to be tested as a ‘gifted child’ and he refused to do the work, playing dumb. Mum has been quite distressed with the situation as well.
I thought to try Milkweed and Pink Shamrock to see what it would trigger in him. On the next visit there had been a remarkable change in the young man as related by his mum of him ‘rolling around the floor laughing hysterically at apparently nothing’. A visit to the Circus with his father had much the same thing happening, to the extent that the patrons were hysterically laughing at his hysterical laughter.
For the next lot of essences I decided to go with Pink Shamrock again and added Macaranga and Milkweed. There has been given a bottle of Crisis Calm for sharing by the family.
Mum is considering trying to make arrangements for another assessment of his abilities.
His mother and father are also taking essences so they can all work through this together. It is a very rewarding process when the whole family decides to give it a go.
