DiscussionRaji: I am married for 8 years. I have a daughter who is 7yrs old. When I became pregnant, I got separated from my husband.Naran: Are you still separated?Raji: No. We are living together for the last one year.Naran: What is your problem since you had been together?Raji: My husband is an alcoholic. Once in 3 or 4 days, he gets drunk as well as daily consuming Pan Parag (a tobacco product).Naran: Since how long he has been an alcoholic?Raji: According to my in laws he started drinking from his graduation days.Naran: Explain his behavior after he gets drunk?Raji: He will get angry at me and my daughter; will shout.Naran: What does he shout about?Raji: He will say, “Nobody respects me. There is no respect for me even in my own house. My daughter does not respect me. My friends, my employees, and my parents don’t respect me either. I will teach all of them a lesson”. After the outburst, he will start weeping.
Naran’s AnalysisTo be respected is the key word for ROCK WATER.He is weeping. By losing control of himself, he weeps. Therefore, add CHERRY PLUM.Rock Water will ultimately turn into either CHESTNUT BUD or VINE.
Discussion (cont...)Naran: How is his behavior when he is not under the influence of alcohol?Raji: His behavior is quite normal only. He shows his love for his daughter. In fact he sincerely made efforts for our reunion. (Naran questioned further about her husband’s profession)Naran: What is he doing?Raji: He is running a Screen Printing unit. But it is not doing well.Naran: How does he manage to pay his workers and take care of the family then?Raji: He is honest in paying out the dues. Somehow, he will manage to pay the workers first, and then gives me money once a week.
Naran’s AnalysisHonesty – ROCK WATERWhen one tries to be honest, in spite of adverse circumstances, self-control is employed to the maximum in one area. He is so self-controlled in the area of finance that he loses self-control in some other area. Thus when he drinks, he loses his control and starts weeping.
Discussion (cont...)Naran: Suppose if he can’t pay his dues, then how does he manage?Raji: Naran, one more thing, I have forgotten to tell you. Every month before paying the rent, he would abscond.Naran: Why?Raji: He cannot pay the house rent by first of every month. Therefore, he feels ashamed to meet the house owner. So he would not stay in the house during the first week of the month. Instead, he would stay with his parents for 4 or 5 days, arrange for the money, and will return back home after paying the rent. He has been doing this for a long time. Though, he would never cheat anybody.
Naran’s Analysis Honest and at the same time an escapist. This is the case of a ROCK WATER person turning into CHESTNUT BUD character. On the due date, he would abscond (Chestnut Bud).
Key Words for Rock WaterTo be respected: Ego and pride; self control, honesty.Self controlled, honest person expects self respect. As a principle, he would never cheat.Here the husband doesn’t get respect. His ego is hurt when he is insulted. He loses his control when he drinks.One more interesting point is Rock Water father will face a Cherry Plum daughter.
Prescription ROCK WATER, CHERRY PLUM, CHESTNUT BUD and WALNUT (to break the habit)Put the combination in the common drinking water, so that everybody will get the healing effect.
Feedback after 15 daysRaji: From the second day onwards, he stopped Pan Parag, and after a week he has stopped drinking.
