Homeopathy and the Elements
Scandium metallicum is an unknown remedy.
The name is derived from ’Scandinavia’ because the substance was discovered by someone from Scandinavia in 1879. The word ’scan’ may or may not be related to Scandium, but at least it gives a very accurate description of the main theme of this stage: looking and comparing.
It stimulates the germination of seeds. It would also be useful in different alloys, as it is lighter than aluminium and has a much higher melting point.

Picture of Scandium metallicum
Essence: not knowing which task to choose.
Wondering which task would suit them
They do want to carry out a task, but they feel they are not ready yet. They haven’t got enough experience and they don’t even know what they would like to do, which task would suit them best. This makes them indecisive, especially because they feel they have to be perfect right from the start.
Trials are experienced as failure
They wonder how on earth to go about things. When they finally have a go at something they get very nervous, and then it goes wrong sometimes. This makes them more hesitant to try again. They don’t really trust compliments either, because they feel that what they are doing amounts to nothing, that they aren’t really doing anything useful yet.
Small setbacks are experienced as persecution
These are the people that try many things but persevere at nothing. Their fear of failure makes them give up before they have given things a chance, which in itself leads to failure. So they end up in a vicious circle.
The slightest mishap or opposition makes them feel insecure, as if they will never succeed anyway.
Fears: failure, falling, criticism, opposition, observed, anticipation.
Dreams: failure, falling, futile efforts, paralysis.
Delusions: being empty.
Mouth problems, aphthae, blisters on tongue.
Stomach pains, bad digestion, inflammation of stomach. Diabetes.
DD Iron series, Stage 3, Bariums.
DD Calcium: is more passive, tries to be normal. Scandium likes to experiment, wants to have a taste of everything, but crawls back inside his shell as soon as things threaten to go wrong. If Calcium represents the oyster, then Scandium represents the little crab.
DD Bariums: are equally inclined to belittle themselves and feel belittled. They can’t make decisions, like Scandium, but they are more passive, they feel ridiculed from the start. Scandium still has a go to see if he can do it.
