Colloidal Samarium

Samarium is a chemical element with symbol Sm and atomic number 62. The picture chosen for this element is because the word Samaria means castle and the castle is on an island because of it's atonomous homeopathic properties

Samarium was discovered in 1879 by the French chemist Paul Émile Lecoq de Boisbaudran and named after the mineral samarskite from which it was isolated. The mineral itself was earlier named after a Russian mine official, Colonel Vasili Samarsky-Bykhovets, who thereby became the first person to have a chemical element named after him, albeit indirectly.

According to the Bible, the kingdom of Solomon was divided after his death in ca.931. In the south, the house of David continued to rule Jerusalem and the kingdom of Judah, and in the north, the kingdom of Israel came into being. In the sixth year of his reign, king Omri (884-873) created a new capital, called Samaria (Šomron), which means something like 'guard post' or 'castle'. The palace of the new city was built on a square platform of about 180x90 meters on a hill that rises more than 100 meters above the surrounding country. It controls the north-south route and an important road from the coast to the Jordan valley.

Samarium is a moderately hard silvery metal that readily oxidizes in air. Being a typical member of the lanthanide series, samarium usually assumes the oxidation state +3. Compounds of samarium(II) are also known, most notably the monoxide SmO, monochalcogenides SmS, SmSe and SmTe, as well as samarium(II) iodide. The last compound is a common reducing agent in chemical synthesis. Samarium has no significant biological role and is only slightly toxic.

Although classified as a rare earth element, samarium is the 40th most abundant element in the Earth's crust and is more common than such metals as tin. Samarium occurs with concentration up to 2.8% in several minerals including cerite, gadolinite, samarskite, monazite and bastnäsite, the last two being the most common commercial sources of the element. These minerals are mostly found in China, the United States, Brazil, India, Sri Lanka and Australia; China is by far the world leader in samarium mining and production.

The major commercial application of samarium is in samarium-cobalt magnets, which have permanent magnetization second only to neodymium magnets; however, samarium compounds can withstand significantly higher temperatures, above 700 °C (1292 °F), without losing their magnetic properties. The radioactive isotope samarium-153 is the major component of the drug samarium (153Sm) lexidronam (Quadramet), which kills cancer cells in the treatment of lung cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer and osteosarcoma.

Samarium is a rare earth metal having the hardness and density similar to those of zinc. With the boiling point of 1794 °C, samarium is the third most volatile lanthanide after ytterbium and europium; this property facilitates separation of samarium from the mineral ore. At ambient conditions, samarium normally assumes a trigonal structure (α form). Upon heating to 731 °C, its crystal symmetry changes into hexagonally close-packed (hcp), however the transition temperature depends on the metal purity. Further heating to 922 °C transforms the metal into a body-centered cubic (bcc) phase. Heating to 300 °C combined with compression to 40 kbar results in a double-hexagonally close-packed structure (dhcp). Applying higher pressure of the order of hundreds or thousands of kilobars induces a series of phase transformations, in particular with a tetragonal phase appearing at about 900 kbar. In one study, the dhcp phase could be produced without compression, using a nonequilibrium annealing regime with a rapid temperature change between about 400 and 700 °C, confirming the transient character of this samarium phase. Also, thin films of samarium obtained by vapor deposition may contain the hcp or dhcp phases at ambient conditions.

Samarium is paramagnetic at room temperature. Its corresponding effective magnetic moments, below 2µB, is the 3rd lowest among the lanthanides (and their oxides) after lanthanum and lutetium. The metal transforms to an antiferromagnetic state upon cooling to 14.8K. Individual samarium atoms can be isolated by encapsulating them into fullerene molecules. They can also be doped between the C60 molecules in the fullerene solid, rendering it superconductive at temperatures below 8 K. Samarium doping of iron-based superconductors – the most recent class of high-temperature superconductors – allows to enhance their transition temperature to 56 K, which is the highest value achieved so far in this series.

Colloidal Shungite contains C60 fullerenes so I wonder that an elixir with Colloidal Shungite and Collloidal Samarium would be like.

According to established medical science, Samarium metal has no known biological role in the human body. Its salts stimulate metabolism, but it is unclear whether this is the effect of samarium or other lanthanides present with it. The total amount of samarium in adults is about 50 micrograms, mostly in liver and kidneys and with about 8 micrograms per liter being dissolved in the blood. Samarium is not absorbed by plants to a measurable concentration and therefore is normally not a part of human diet. However, a few plants and vegetables may contain up to 1 part per million of samarium. Insoluble salts of samarium are non-toxic and the soluble ones are only slightly toxic.

When ingested, only about 0.05% of samarium salts is absorbed into the bloodstream and the remainder is excreted. From the blood, about 45% goes to the liver and 45% is deposited on the surface of the bones where it remains for about 10 years; the balance 10% is excreted.

Chief Complaint of Samarium defeciency: Chest pains, migraines, and chronic fatigue.

According to Dr Joel Wallach, "Rare Earths: Forbidden Cures," Samarium enhances normal cell proliferation and doubles the life span of laboratory species.

Samarium is stage 8:
Force, push press, struggle, tension, strife, resistance, opposition, confront

Jan Scholten says that the experience of Samarium is extreme pressure and heaviness. They have to force their way through life. They have amazing inner strength, and they will put incredible pressure on themselves to get things done. Their own expectations are the driving force. Their forceful attitude to life might be expressed as ....

"You just have to get on with it".
"Lets get it done. Whatever it takes."
"Nothings gonna bring me down".

A typical Samarium dream is of driving at great speed trying to keep the car on the straight and narrow.

They still feel that they have lots to do and that they will go far. The reward for their struggle is independence and autonomy.

They have to get over, round or through every obstruction. Opposition is felt as harsh criticism, in fact it can seem like everyone's a critic. Its easy to criticise, but much harder to DO!

Provings often give a mixed bag of results. In Clinical trials the remedy is judged to be suitable for the person, which means they will be sensitive to it and their reactions will be good indicators of its therapeutic role. One person who took part in an early proving seems to have experienced the expected result with Samarium, which is a Stage 8 Lanthanide (autonomy/power) Remedy:

"I feel self-confident and assertive. The sensation is that I am who I am."

Various others described feelings of "hindrances" or of "breaking boundaries" which are, in general, typical of Stage 8 - the theme of "pushing through".

A Review on the Secret Lanthanides

Lanthanides are a group of remedies that belongs to the gold series in the periodic table, “hidden” between Barium and Hafnium, hence its name “Secrete Lanthanides.” Not only are they hidden in chemicals and salts, but the key concepts of the Lanthanides picture, such as Self, autonomy, (inner) power, reflection, etc. are inner qualities that characterize a spiritual seeker for Self-knowledge also suggest the characteristic of “hiddenness”. Hence, the journey of the Lanthanides can be viewed as a spiritual quest on “the road to self-hood” and an attempt to heal one’s spiritual, emotional and physical fragmentation.

Diseases, considered from the doctrine of homeopath, are the physical manifestations of a disturbance that has its origin in the spiritual self. Therefore, the manifestation of autoimmune diseases can be considered as a confusion first in the spiritual, mental and emotional levels in terms of autonomy and the personal power to be “self,” as opposed to the need to be accepted by the collective that leads to the adopting of family or socially prescribed values, “the not self.” From the tension between the two seemingly irreconcilable opposites comes the manifestation on the physical level of what we term the autoimmune diseases - fragmentation of physical body’s self-protective mechanism and the frgmentation of the self and the physical body. The journey of the Lanthanides reflects the process of integration of opposites. In this sense, those individuals who require Lanthanides as their journey of healing also show in their personality an inner struggle to self-realise – to define “who I really am” in relationship to the external social and collective values.

Thus the journey of the Lanthanides challenges the twenty-first century men and women through the life process that is symbolically described by the eighteen stages of the periodic table in Scholten’s Element Theory. These stages encompass all human responses to life on earth, from the depth of our suffering, the breadth of our longing to the height of our joy.

The stages of the Lanthanides are symbolic representations of a Hero’s journey which is succinctly and eloquently enlarged by Scholten via the mythologies of the Twelve Labor's of Heracles and the Adventures of Odysseus. These mythic images color the feeling tone of each remedy and describe the essence of the patients who require these. The mythical themes are archetypal images relevant to and resonant with each and every one of us at a fundamental level. Archetypal images are representations of instincts – the pre-existing patterns of behavior that underlie all human experience - though the outward manifestations of our individual experiences may differ greatly from one to another, their basic pattern remains the same. As such, the myths related allow us to gain a deeper insight into the essences of the Lanthanides.

The qualities and the various key concepts of the Lanthanides are further elucidated by Scholten in terms of their own unique expression in relation to their sense of self. For instance, the concept of “power” in Lanthanum is he “tries to find out where his power is and how he can use it,” whereas “Europium knows he has power” (Scholten, 2005:59-60). Thus, we can see that the expression of the aspect of “power” is vastly different, from the third stage Lanthanum to Europium that belongs to the twelfth stage.

First of the key concepts of the Lanthanides is autonomy - which is “the first level of the development of the Lanthanides” (Scholten, 2005:47) – self-directive. The second important concept for the Lanthanides is the inwardly directed power, which is differentiated from the external focused power of the gold series. The third aspect of the theme is the shadow. Shadow is the unconscious side of the personality - those qualities that provoke an emotional response in the conscious personality when seen glaringly displayed in another. Facing one’s own darkness and the integration of opposites (e.g. dark and light) is a necessary step on a hero’s journey in quest of the Self. Hiddenness is the fourth main concept of the Lanthanides. The hidden quality here has to do with the journey of the Lanthanides being an inward one that intrinsically deals with one’s own inner sense of power, autonomy, self-control, value, worth, etc. These may not be shared so readily with another, and at the same time, they may be at odds with current socially accepted values, though the essence in the quest for Self-hood is universal in nature. This is especially true when these qualities are distilled from life’s experiences.

In addition to the above mentioned key concepts, others such as searcher, self-control, self, inner world, light and dark, honest, real, depth, reflection, sensitive bright, reserved and isolation are also aspects of the Lanthanides and could be qualities central to those who require Lanthanides for their healing.
