Aggression Restless, escape
Fear of loss Passion, instinct
Although this remedy had not been described anywhere, it proved to be possible to prescribe it successfully, based on the group analysis method. The central theme which comes up is the feeling that they are guilty of starting or provoking quarrels. They are very sensitive to quarrels and will always try to make peace. For instance in the situation of children whose parents are fighting, such a child will feel guilty and think that it is because they are being difficult, or because the parents have to spend so much money on them.
A variation on this theme could be that Mag-br people are aggressive, just to express themselves, or just to see what happens when they give free rein to their instinct. These are the sort of children who will suddenly get aggressive and start beating or kicking others. After that they will just stand there and see how everyone reacts. One gets the impression that they are mentally disturbed, because they do this without any obvious reason.
The idea that they are guilty of causing quarrels.
They can’t stand quarrels and they will do anything to avoid them or to stop them. This is mainly because they feel guilty of causing these quarrels. They feel that other people are fighting because of their presence. For instance, in the case where parents are quarrelling about their children and their financial troubles, they feel that it is because they are too much of a burden.
This causes them to have deep feelings of anxiety and guilt, leading to hyper-ventilation, even to psychiatric disturbances. They are afraid of their own anger too: their own aggression might burst forth any moment, and they they don’t know what they might do to others. But they know they would feel very guilty about that.
The opposite can also happen. In this case they will express their aggression with great enthusiasm. They will start to play with it and taunt others, or suddenly start to beat them. Then they will dare them to do anything in retaliation.
