5.1 Praseodymium metallicum
The most impressive aspect of Praseodymium patients is their cautious quality. They feel hesitant, not daring to do what they feel is their own plan. They are very careful and keep looking to see from which side problems can arise.
Hesitating to act autonomously
Seeking how they can be autonomous
Autonomy feels unrealistic
Making plans to be independent
Don’t see the laws behind it
Avoiding the inner world
The timid cautious twin
Hesitating to handle autonomously
They want to be autonomous, but feel too weak to follow their own ideas. They keep on hesitating to go their own way. They feel that being autonomous is unrealistic. The situation is too dangerous and they have too little power to stand up for themselves and take up their independence. They are very cautious, always looking for what can go wrong. But they still want to be an individual, someone who chooses for himself. Internally they have made their own choice already, they know what they want. But to bring that into reality is a huge task with a lot of dangers. Saying what you want feels like making yourself vulnerable to the attacks of others. Many times they will try to stand up for their own ideas and plans, but when they are attacked they give up very easily. This sometimes looks like a cat wanting to attack a dangerous animal, circling it, but not daring to attack. They pussyfoot around things, fearing the confrontation.
Avoiding the inner world
They can also have a desire to be in control of themselves. They want to master their own psyche and may take courses for spiritual development. But there too they feel the task of self-control as huge, too big. They have the feeling that mastering self-control is an impossible task. And every time they have got control over some part, there is another part that comes up that they haven’t mastered yet. It feels an endless task, where one problem is resolved only to be replaced by another. So they tend to alternate between trying to master self-control and giving up.
The timid, cautious twin
At a certain stage twins often develop the desire to be an individual person instead of part of the twins. They want to become autonomous. But in Praseodymium they have a fear of going their own way. They are the timid one of the twins. They have fear, because they can't see behind things and can’t predict what will happen.
They try to find out how they can give their autonomy form in their life. They still see it as an enormous task. Sometimes they go for it and at other times they will see it as something impossible and give up.
Praseodymium is careful. The shadow can pop up anywhere and anytime and you won’t know when and where. It is like the hydra with the 100 heads and more heads are coming all the time.
Praseodymium is very cautious with his power. He fears he will be depleted easily by exerting his power over things that are of no use. He wants to find out how he can use his power, before he has squandered it in vain.
