Beyond the Veil of
Delusions - Understanding Relationships Through Homeopathy by Mati H
Fuller is a fascinating psychological and homeopathic study of human
nature and its inner relationships.
Mati's understanding of psychology and her proficiency in homeopathic
medicine merge together in this delightful, easy to read and easy to
We all have a need for water, food, and a hospitable climate where we
can live and thrive comfortably. We all have a need for love, attention
and affection, but our love relationships and interactions have always
been a source of mystery to many of us. How often have we heard, "What
does he see in her?" or "They seemed like such a nice couple,
why did they split up?" Or, even, "Why do they stay together?"
These questions have never been adequately explained, but Mati's insights
remove the mystery. This book sheds light upon the motivations of many
constitutional remedies and it enlightens the reader to the needs, desires
and fears each remedy exhibits. Now we can understand the glue that
hold relationships together or the repelling forces that might precipitate
Beyond the Veil of Delusions is fascinating reading, not just for the
homeopath, but for anyone who is a student of human behavior, or for
anyone who wants to achieve a better understanding of what makes relationships
work or not work. Through Mati's understanding of human needs at the
more elemental levels of security, image and delusions these remedy
pictures come alive.
Mati Fuller brings a rich background to the homeopathic table. Her study
of homeopathy and her clearness of vision and understanding of human
behavior make this a unique but solid compilation of her knowledge.
Her book is over 300 pages, but I do have one complaint: it was so good
that Mati left me wanting more. I scoured the index hoping for just
one more remedy, well maybe two more, or even three more would be nice
Mati has opened a door for us, a door that many homeopaths can now pass
through, she has brought our literature and understanding to a new,
exciting dimension, and I look forward to her next book as time allows
her to continue her project into the future.
This book is a classical piece of literature; it will take its place
prominently on my book shelf right next to Catherine Coulter, Robin
Murphy's Workbook, Gibbson and Bailey's Psychology. I am always delighted
to have another reference book that I can use to refresh my knowledge
in a particular area and Mati's book has done that - taught me more
in an exciting, refreshing way.

REVIEW by Margot Maidment
Registrar of The Contemporary College of Homeopathy, Exeter,
Fuller is a homeopath practising in America who has written a book about
how she perceives homeopathic remedy profiles to reflect 'The Deeper
Levels of the Psyche', in which she draws on both her practical knowledge
of her fellow human beings and her enthusiasm for both psychological
and homeopathic insights into human behaviour and relationships.
book should be of interest not only to homeopaths and student homeopaths
wanting to develop their understanding of the interrelationships between
the psyche and emotional health, or to psychologists keen to find out
what homeopathic understanding has to offer to practitioners in mental
health, but also to any individual wanting to make sense of their place
in the world and of the ramifications concerning their encounters with
others - which could well be all of us.
is and has always been an eclectic arena encompassing both artistic
and scientific interpretations of intellectual phenomena, as well as
offering a particular focus for clinical practice, which, in Great Britain
today, is generating much discussion and is currently fast becoming
a forum for political intervention in the widest sense of stimulating
conflict and, with luck and good will, offering possible channels for
conflict resolution by helping us to make sense of our relationship
problems, whether these be on an intimate scale of interpersonal dynamics
or on the larger scale of institutional, or even national and international,
portraits of how remedies as constitutional pictures interrelate or
fail to connect, Mati illuminates for the reader the complex nature
of such interactions in specific personal circumstances but in providing
the possibility of a more general understanding of one human being for
another, it may permit us to extend to others, who may seem to differ
superficially from ourselves in many ways, a sense of respect and compassion
for the essential commonalities between us. Anyone with a hope for a
peaceful and 'healthful' future for humankind and our environment in
all its manifestations will welcome and treasure this book.
book is available as a first edition, which encompasses two volumes
and includes rubrics which will be of particular interest to the homeopath
or student homeopath, and as a second edition in one more compact volume,
which does not include rubrics. (The name of the second edition is "Beyond
the Veil of Delusions, Understanding Relationships Through Homeopathy").
Both editions are, I understand, available through Amazon or via her

The Veil of Delusions," is a fascinating psychological and homoeopathic
study of human nature and its inner relationships. Mati's name does
not need an introduction in the field of homeopathy. Her insight into
human psychology and her proficiency in homoeopathic medicines have
merged together to present this exquisite work. The book is easy to
understand and imbibe; the presentation of psychological profile of
homoeopathic remedies is delightful.
This book, which is a cross between homeopathy and psychology, is written
for those who are interested in understanding the deeper levels of the
psyche from a homeopathic point of view. Not just for the homoeopaths,
but for anyone who is a student of human behaviour, or for anyone who
wants to achieve a better understanding of what causes the wheels of
relationship to turn or stop. This book is just as essential for those
who want to let go of old patterns and expand to higher levels of consciousness,
as it is for the homeopath to understand his clients well enough to
pick a good remedy.
"Beyond the Veil of Delusions" is divided into four sections,
guiding the reader to deeper levels of understanding human nature:
Part Ist: Perceptions of Reality.
Part IInd: The Remedy Profiles---the Deeper Levels of the Psyche.
Part IIIrd---Relationships---Predictable Patterns.
Part IVth-The Bigger Picture- Conclusions and Reflections.
The first part deals with what delusions are, and how understanding
them is vital to know the personality of a person.
Second part deals with the remedy profiles. The book sheds light upon
the motivations of many constitutional remedies and it enlightens the
reader to the needs, desires and fears each remedy exhibits. As you
go through the portrait of a medicine, you become friendly with their
characters. You know their weaknesses, their strengths, their fears,
their needs and desires. The remedy pictures come alive.
Third part deals with the relationship issues, (personally speaking
this was the section I enjoyed the most). Just by going through it we
can understand the bond that holds relationships together or the repulsions
that might precipitate a separation. Some of the kinships explained
in detail include:
The relationship between Natrum muriaticum woman and Lycopodium man.
The almost perfect relationship,
The relationship between Natrum muriaticum woman and Arsenicum album
The relationship between Kali carbonicum woman and Nux vomica man,
and many more.
On the needs and desires of the medicines from relationships Mati has
given an insight into inner sphere, "
.Natrum mur is attracted
to someone who is physically or emotionally like her father; Arsenicum
will look for someone who can take care for him; Staphysagria, who hates
his mother, is looking for a mother figure he can hate, so he often
picks up someone who reminds him of his mother. Causticum wants a mate
who can help him save humanity or make the world a better place; Calcarea
carb wants a mate who can provide for her and make her feel safe; Phosphorus
wants a mate who will love her forever and think she is eternally beautiful;
Pulsatilla wants a mate who will never leave her or die
In the fourth part she has explained the significance of meditation
in dealing with the relationships. "In a relationship, the priorities
are simple: Each person needs to focus on his or her own spiritual journey.
The problems we experience in our relationships should simply be seen
as opportunities for further spiritual growth. Instead of focussing
on all the things they don't like about each other and constantly convincing
the other to change, they will eventually realize that the only person
they can truly change is themselves. This perception can then turn the
relationship from being a battle of egos (selfishness and separation)
into a place of love, nurturing and compassion (togetherness and oneness)
whole journey here is about finding a way to reconnect, and eventually
become one with, the Ultimate Source, and everything we experience,
including relationship problems, are only stepping stones in the process
of continued spiritual expansion. All it takes, to be able to see everything
in a whole new perspective, is just a small shift in perception."
She has even touched the controversial subject of "The Changing
Constitutions" She has just poured her views and left the reader
to ponder about the unravelling of the mystery. Fourth part includes
Mati's insight into the ever widening issues which she realised while
writing the book.
One thing I can assure you, if you get hold of the book, just flip through
the pages and you will feel so magnetized to it that you won't be able
to rest until you have exhausted the last drops of the nectar from it.
You can take my words for that.
It is my hope that the readers will also find the content interesting,
inspiring and thought provoking. Mati has opened a vision for us, the
vision expanding the spheres of understanding of not just homoeopathic
medicines but also of human behaviour. It leaves us craving for more.
This is not just my wish, but the wish of anyone who reads through the
book. We are waiting for the next plunge into the vast ocean of remedy
Our esurient soul craves for more; Mati, when can you provide us with
the next course? To which her response is,
Don't worry, more will come. I am currently working on the next book,
which I think I will call "Straight to the Core." When it
will be finished, I don't know, but I do promise that I'll let you know
as soon as it happens."
"Beyond the Veil of Delusions" is available from
and is also available from many homeopathic bookstores, as well as from
online booksellers like http://www.amazon.com

I just received the
book yesterday; have been reading and re-evaluating life ever since.
It helps so much to have your examples to learn from. I already see
myself and my relationships, and also some family members in the example
portraits/descriptions. I thank you for sharing those, and for writing
this book for all of our benefit. It helps to untangle some of the mysteries
inherent in relating to others.
I appreciate your
including the core issue concept, ideas on how to work with these; and
your suggestions for compromise and solutions are very practical and
welcomed. Also, the progressive flavor of the book, with examples of
spiritual and personal-growth successfully demonstrating value within
the relationships is most welcomed and timely I'd say.

It was easy
to settle into this book. As soon as I had read my remedy profile, I
was just as eager to read the rest. There is an underlying theme of
compassion in all of Mati's work, which is exactly what I am looking
for in my own relationships. Extremely insightful. Well done!

see. Mati's work can help so many.
