,Nature Beings Three years ago we met with a Swiss couple with two young children, aged 5 and 7. We spend a lovely afternoon with the family visiting a nature reserve on the Mornington Peninsula. The children seemed to be fond of me, to my own delight as I seriously love the company of children, and they wanted to spend a lot of time interacting with me. Picture Above: Fairy ring. R. Doyle
So while we walked through a small forest one of the kids, the youngest, took my hands and started to chat about the nature beings. She also told me that she could see people who have already died and also little beings of nature. She described them to me and kept on talking about her experiences and also described one of the nature beings she saw in the forest we were walking in. When we sat down at a nice coffee shop, I asked their mother about it, and she confirmed that both of the children since a young age were able to communicate with nature beings and also see departed souls.
Now as I myself experience a lot of help from the nature beings in biomagnetic healing sessions, I feel very much urged to talk about them here to you as I feel grateful for their support and also friendship. (In the accredited Practitioner training we will also occupy ourselves more with it, and how it relates to Healing Magnetism etc.). Yes, I have made a number of personal experiences over the years. Now when for you nature beings are something really out of this world, unreal or in the category of fantasy, you might embrace the following or you might think the author of this Blog is living with the fairies. I take both as a compliment. Are nature beings real? Most people ask themselves the question. Do they really exist, the elemental beings like elf-munchies, gnomes, mermaids, undines, sylphs, fire elemental beings, and others? It is striking that in the vocabulary of almost all languages names for natural beings occur uniformly and that they are everywhere divided into earth, water, air, and fire beings. The encounters with these creatures described in fairy tales and narrations are basically so similar to one another that one must either assume that the narrators have agreed to meet each other over time and continents, or else they describe what they have experienced with such beings really and it did not just arise from a moody imagination but are real experiences, a fact and these beings actually exist!

Just in the last days, a few paintings of an artist with the name Pixie O'Harris was discovered in an old storeroom in the Manning Base Hospital according to ABC News. In some of her pictures we can for example clearly, see a variety of nature beings interacting with children. In the ABC article, we can read: Pixie O'Harris was born in 1903 and came to Australia from Wales with her family in 1920. She became a much-loved writer and illustrator of a great number of famous children’s stories. ”Its hard not to be enchanted by her colorful, whimsical images, and fantasy characters, which many people will remember from childhood.” Another lady said: "I sort of think of them as a Where's Wally painting because there are so many little elves and fairies and babies hiding in the bushes and the trees and the hollows," Ms. Roberts. And other voices were: “They are whimsical, they usually have children in them, and wildlife.” “I think that’s why kids of today still love these paintings; they can relate to them and pick out little things we don’t notice as adults.” Now perhaps the author of the article describes the little characters as fantasy whereas who knows perhaps the artist Pixie O'Harris was actually able to see these beings or feel them, like many other seers and children worldwide do. Also, other artists painted the nature beings according to their own skills or personality and perception. There are also many artists from different countries of the world and also seers from the past or present from all regions of the world who offer explanations about these beings.

Beyond that, objective descriptions of the past and present from all parts of the world are available to us, which report in the same way about these elemental beings. Such striking congruence can no longer be ascribed to blind chance. If there are beings of nature, then they have a task for creation, like everything in it. A task that is indispensable to the whole, without which something important would be missing. If so, then it cannot and may not be indifferent to us humans, whether we know about it or not. How and where do we receive confirmation of the existence of these nature beings? Let's look first in the literature that is accessible to all of us. There are many people who know about the book of the successful Swedish doctor Axel Munthe, which belongs to the world literature and is called: “The story of San Michelle.” In the book, the doctor describes how he met a little elf as a young man in a remote house in Lapland. In the foreword, Axel Munthe writes: "It seems to me that there are fewer pixies in our world today than when I was a child, but I cannot believe that a reader of the chapter on Lapland in this book could have the brow to deny that it was a real well-intended pixie who was sitting on the table in Forstugen and carefully plucked at my watch chain. Of course, it was a real pixie, who else could it have been? I tell you, I saw him with both of my eyes when I was sitting in bed... I'm told there are even people who have never seen a pixie in their lives. I really feel sorry for such people; they missed a lot! I think they have to be short-sighted. Maybe they have tired their eyes due to too much reading in school ..... Today's people waste too much time listening to other people's speeches and thoughts. It would be much better if they took more rest to listen to their own thoughts. We can learn knowledge from others, the wisdom we have to teach ourselves. The fountain of wisdom springs from our own ground in the silent depths of our lonely thoughts and dreams. " Axel Munthe said that, although I assume at that time of him writing this, Facebook, Instagram and the like was also not yet invented. Axel Munthe is not the only person to be taken seriously who speaks of nature beings, many others we have to look at just as objectively as him. It is always people who have been able to maintain enough purity of inner character to keep in touch with, sometimes even to see and hear, and to interact with nature's beings.
It must be left to the reader ascertain their knowledge of the elemental beings in literature, for example in the works of Goethe, Shakespeare or other writers, or to discover this knowledge through other thinkers, for example the great physician Paracelsus, in whose teachings the natural beings play an important role.
Also, Conan Doyle, the well-known English crime novelist with the main character of Sherlock Holmes, describes in his book "The Coming of the Fairies," speaking with scientific alertness of the nature beings. He succeeds convincingly in proving the existence of the elementals. In fact, even in our technological world, besides adults still many children can see these nature beings. Unfortunately, in most cases, the parents who are confronted with the allusions and behavior of the children give them no understanding. What is often taken away from the children by the wrong behavior of the adults, and what is denied to them by the ignorance of all things that go beyond the needs of everyday life! For the sake of our children alone, we should do our utmost to get closer to the recognition of the truth, even in regard to the nature of beings.
To the materialistically, supposedly factually and soberly thinking, but actually inwardly poor people, the portrayals of all extra-terrestrial life seem fantastic, unnecessary to the world. But this is an infallible sign that these people do not even know their own material world, which seems to exist for them really; because how many fantastic things are there to discover! Every life and development process in nature must address us in this direction. But it is precisely in the observation of nature that we are compelled to endeavor to look behind the gross material scenes if we want to understand what is there. Looking does not necessarily mean here to be clairvoyant; it is also sufficient to inwardly comprehend, to acknowledge extraordinary things and events. However, there are reports of clairvoyant people, and these can be of the highest value for us. But as I said, many present-day people do not pay attention to what is offered to them by the seer. They have the point of view: What we do not see for ourselves does not exist for us. But this attitude is very superficial. With a single example, the inconvenience inherent in it can be illustrated: for example, consider the high-frequency waves of a radio station. They are neither to be seen nor to grasp or to hear. Are they not still existing anyway? The materialist will argue that we do not see the radio waves, but the receiver picks them up, changes them, and we can hear them. That's why he believes in its existence. Well, here we come closer to the facts. Today, the materialist would no longer be able to deny these waves, because in the meantime they can be registered by fine instruments. Perhaps there will be even finer gauges in the future, e.g., Thought forces can already be measured and proven.
There is no need to have too much ability to combine facts to imagine that some of the most sensitive or one could even say, gifted people, can perceive things that are hidden from others who do not possess that sensibility. It is by no means correct to say; “What I can not see or otherwise perceive directly, that does not exist.” Some doubters will not be content with this explanation. He will say to himself: "Seeing," for example, man can see only with his earthly eyes, and these are physiologically so similar to each other in all humans, that there can hardly be any differences. In reality, there are big differences. Any ophthalmologist can confirm that. The study of color blindness alone has shown that virtually every human being has his own "palette of colors" in himself. Moreover, the eye is only an instrument given for earthly purposes, which stands in the service of the "actual ability to see." This "real seeing" is a capacity of the soul of man. Every human being can experience it himself when he dreams. In the dream, man sees, even if his earthly eyes are closed. However, in sleep, man does not see physical things, but things of the extra-terrestrial, even if they are only creations of his own world of thought, which also represents a form of reality, like the earthly.
Why should it not be possible for some people to have the ability to look into the other world while they are awake? Granted, we have to be careful when we get descriptions of otherworldly things so as not to fall victim to mistakes. We must preserve our critical mind; we must examine carefully, we must weigh whether there is agreement with our own intuitive sense of truth. This capacity of deep intuitive perception is beyond earthly understanding, not subject to its limitations, for it is not bound to the material brain, the earthly intellect, but to the spirit, our true self. We need to be awake to see if we are dealing with real experiences in such portrayals, or if irresponsible charlatanry is pursued obvious reasons. The more we have preserved a real sense of deep intuitive perception, the safer we will be able to judge here. In earlier times, the normal human vision was more extensive than it is today. The increasingly far-reaching abandonment of people from life and from nature has obviously not been without consequences here as well. The genuine natural peoples, which still exist today, have the finer kind of sight and thus the conscious connection with the natural forces and natural beings partially preserved, as it was once even with today's advanced people in their early days. At that time it was still possible that the intuitive bridges to the beings were open and worked. Also in the field of physical healing, humans have been able to receive the instructions of these beings. The large European, nature-loving people the Greeks, Romans, -Germans, therefore, had, like many other unspoiled nations in their bloom time, great knowledge of the nature beings and the natural forces. These were happy times for them. Their knowledge was real and alive; it filled their heart and spirit and their actions, it was also an integral part of their religions. With increasing power of these people and the concomitant life in the cities, the closeness to nature was initially lost among the city dwellers. Instead, materialism grew, and many of the initially healthy rules of life degenerated. Gradually, the still healthy life in the countryside was pulled onto the same path. As a result of the ever stronger unilateral penetration of all spheres of life with the earthly intellect, people have lost the ability to perceive with the deep intuitive processes which are attributed to the soul/spirit. Thus, the initially existing bond with nature was lost more and more and with it the knowledge of the nature beings. The decisive influence that banished the existence of nature beings from the thinking of the people of Europe or some overseas territories, however, strange as it may sound, was the spreading of Christianity. A too narrowly conceived Christian doctrine forbade the belief in the natural beings, called these beings as non-existent or as belonging to the underworld, to hell.
This development had a particularly tragic effect in the Germanic regions, where at the time of Christianisation, for the most part, there were still healthy circumstances: here people still had a genuine connection with nature. This connection was destroyed by those who believed that they had to spread Christianity with the sword, as was often the case. This basically unchristian approach was resisted by entire sections of the people because they wanted to stay connected with that what they perceived as their living knowledge of the natural forces. This knowledge, however, was systematically and violently crushed as a misconception and idolatry rather than as a sound foundation for true Christian faith. Here nevertheless, most of the Christians themselves lacked knowledge. Rome, the starting point of the Christianization of Western Europe, was at that time already a nature-alienating, thinking only on the earth-bound level, city. The shattering of the belief in the nature beings was certainly not in the sense of Jesus. He may have transmitted some of his knowledge to his disciples, but it was not recorded. The fact that it was known, however, is shown by artistic representations in Christian churches in Asia, depicting nature beings with Jesus. Many a Christian missionaries who come today to natural people to bring them faith in the one true God, has to shyly realize his ignorance of many of the knowledge that the peoples of nature still possess, and it is not surprising that some of these missionaries begin to doubt the faith content of the Christian doctrine, as conveyed to them. At least they recognize its incompleteness and sense the need to incorporate the knowledge of the natural forces in the Christian doctrine which is still preserved in the natural population; for only then, they feel, can they claim to be the religion of comprehensive truth. This process of the necessary extension and addition of the knowledge of creation is presently taking place. The humanity of the present is given as never before an opportunity to achieve a comprehensive, well-rounded world view. Not only because today the world is actually open to every human being and it is only up to him to seize the opportunity to find and absorb all the truths that are among the many developed nations, but it is also for us humans promised that the spirit of truth would guide us into all truth. It would be very interesting to elaborate on the many accounts of the encounters with natural beings, as here we can also draw conclusions about their nature and task in creation. We have to confine ourselves here to a few examples; for example, that the mountain gnomes help the shepherds look after the cattle, show them places that are not soaked in thunderstorms, and show them the way through the fog. Something I have by the way experienced multiple times during walks in the mountains of Austria, when I got lost and ended there at night or lost my path in the forest. Mountain gnomes also give the right time for the raising and aborting of the cattle, give the farmers hints when and where they should grow and sow and still do some other assistance. Those who follow their advice will be rewarded by rich harvest and health of pets and life stock. But those who disobey their instructions and act idiosyncratically spoil the harvest with frost, bad weather, miscarriage or damage, and diseases infect the livestock. On the outside walls of the mountain buildings, we find such beings as "house spirits." For example, the so-called Kasermandl (Cheese gnome see image below) lives in the Tyrolean Alpine huts.
We learn from gnomes in the garden, house, and apartment. Conversations with seers testify that such household spirits are more than suspected, helping people - usually unconsciously - in a variety of ways. Also from elemental beings which help people in healing professions has been reported and I have also personally experienced a lot here often perceived as hunches or intuitions. I've been told that the colorful garden gnomes, sometimes set up in gardens, look similar in appearance to the real garden gnome. Perhaps those who first designed them could resort to portrayals of the seer or see them for themselves. Image below: Carl Spitzwegerich. Gnome Eisenbahn betrachtend. In the picture, the form of the gnome I also had seen in the mountains when a small group of them warned me from impending danger.
Also widely used is the knowledge of mountain spirits underground. Again and again, there are among the mountain men, the "buddies," who have the gift to see these gnomes familiar with the rock and earth and they understand their warnings and advice. They provide people with valuable services and can save them from accidents. Anyone who studies reports about the experiences of miners, who have been saved after several days of imprisonment in collapsed tunnels, will find again and again that some of these miners saw appearances of bright figures who came to help and comfort them.
I also had a personal experience here when I made a dangerous mountain hike with a small group of women. We came off the right track and had to work our way up a dangerous stony hill using a lot of effort. I was very scared and had the feeling of fainting in a moment. When I asked for help in prayer, a small mountain creature appeared above me at the bush I was hanging on. It gave me courage, and I had the feeling it also gave me strength. By the way, the nature being I saw at that day seemed to stay with me until night time when we eventually after much struggle found our way back. It encouraged me when we had to go narrow paths which fell steeply into the valley at one side. I had an incredible fear of heights at the time, and usually, I have avoided such walks, and we only had to be on this path because we took the wrong turn. Even when the sun went down, and it was night in the forest, it was in places really pitch black dark; it was as if the nature being is giving me advice on where to put my feet. Also, it was holding me a small light so I could see where to safely put my next step. I am very grateful and respectful for these nature beings and I do not mind if you believe that was all in my head. Everyone who closes themselves from such help is missing out on help s/he could have otherwise.
This was not my only experience, but the nature beings also saved my life in a different situation when they warned me and helped me as a dangerous man pursued me and then wanted to attack and kill me during a walk in a dense forest. Here they have saved my life with warnings and advice on how to escape this horrible situation. But let’s return to the so-called mountain spirits which were seen by the miners. Most of the time, these phenomena are interpreted as the effects of overstretched nerves in those who are in great anxiety, but in fact the people who wait in the dark with their bodies weakened and often praying to God open themselves inwardly and are then able, as it was, with their Soul's eyes to look beyond the material. From the flower-elves, that look brightly colored like butterflies, possessing perfectly beautiful female forms, wrapped in gossamer, delicately veiled, we are told that they look after the flowers, support their growth in supplying them with radiation. The caretakers of shrubs and trees, of the earth and of the rocks, on the contrary, appear in masculine forms according to their coarser work.
Furthermore, we hear about, water, air and so-called fire beings that are described to us, such as the king of the storm spirits called Ariel in Shakespeare's play "The Storm," the lovely mermaids of the springs and waters or the salamander that are attached to the fire. The so-called spring deities, who show themselves to the beholders in perfectly beautiful female figures, are a higher kind of natural being. They are known by almost all peoples, not only the Greek, Roman, and Germanic but also earlier; but they also can be seen sometimes by pure, nature-loving people of the present. Through the beauty of their appearance, they have deeply impressed all the people who have become aware of them, and because of this, and because of their kindly, helpful, and even miraculous nature, they have been repeatedly labeled as coming from divinity, which in reality is not their nature. Anyone who follows the history of the apparition of Lourdes and the like of modern times can see the parallels to the gods of the early days. Since according to previous Christian doctrine natural beings do not exist, such visions were usually interpreted as appearances of the mother of Jesus. Salomon, the great king of the Jews, known for his wisdom, warned his contemporaries against paying divine reverence to these beings. He had a great knowledge of creation and knew of the existence of these molded natural forces. In Judaism, it was known as fact. All religions that build on the ancient knowledge of Judaism would therefore also need to incorporate this knowledge of the natural beings into their teaching. It can only round off and consolidate it.
The examples, descriptions, and considerations mentioned here will give a critical, so objective-minded reader food for thought and bring him closer to the idea that natural beings actually exist. But these indications are not intended to be a proof that alone leads to the conviction of their existence. Every human being bears in his innermost heart a firm knowledge of all processes of a non-gross nature which belong to his species as spirits. This includes the knowledge about the nature beings. This hidden knowledge often rises up in us, as already suggested, as an idea of unknown origin, which can be awakened in one way or another. These expositions should contribute to exposing the hunches one has about the nature beings, in order to transform them into conscious knowledge.
But what should we humans of the present time do with this knowledge? This may be said to have been good and necessary for nature people here and there. But today we have such fine instruments, so sophisticated a science and technology, we no longer need the help of gnomes or elves and similar beings. We have our observation stations; we penetrate with our instruments deeper and deeper into space. Why all this? In spite of all progress, have we not been a thousand times dependent on nature? We read and hear again and again of devastating storms, heat and cold waves, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other so-called natural disasters that inflict great harm on those affected, without the modern man being able to do anything decisive against it. When my son was little, I told him now and then the true story of a boy who ate poisonous berries in the forest. Although the elemental forest beings have warned the boy, he ate the berries, and he became very seriously ill. The mother found him and was desperate because they lived very far away from the next doctor and at that time there was no phone or car available for some reason. So the mother prayed for help, and a little elf appeared and showed her the way to a healing plant. He also showed the mother how to prepare the plant for the child, and the kid recovered quickly. With all respect for the modern medical achievements, but would it not be sometimes helpful for the sufferers to also ask additional help from these helping beings? How often is modern medicine despite their achievements not able to help the sufferers? The flight of birds over the oceans and continents, which continues to astonish us, humans, becomes understandable when we learn that the birds are cared for and guided by nature beings during their flight. What we call instinct is largely due to the direct influence of the nature beings on the animals. But it is also given to us modern humans to connect with nature beings. Many a car accident or a plane crash, many a ship disaster, many a harmful consequence of intended criminal acts could be avoided if we were to listen to the warning of the nature of beings. They know more than we do because they themselves work within the natural forces and laws and therefore know the effect and course of natural events Those who pay attention and observe in this direction in their own sphere of life will find much of the activity of nature beings. His own experience will then give him living knowledge, and certainty and inexhaustible conviction that nature beings exist and they are reliable helpers for us humans. Nature beings are an integral part of our whole existence here on earth and also can help us to understand where life comes from but this we will cover in a future Blog.

Questions to you
Do you believe in the existence of Nature Beings? If yes, did you make a personal experience?
The following writing I compiled 6 years ago and it includes a personal experience when I found myself in great danger and received help. You will see that the use of my English language was at that time even less polished than it is now, but I will leave it exactly how I compiled it. I wrote the following on the day when Jill Meager was found, murdered and her body dumped by the side of a street. I had the urge to help others with sharing my views and experiences.
From Edeltraud Grace
We NEED spiritual knowledge.
It was about 8PM in the evening, and I was sitting in the little reading room of the big house I was staying in. There were two two-seater lounge sofas, greyish green with floral pattern. The big lampshade gave out some soft light shining into the room making it look warm and cozy. I was reading a funny book, just for relaxation when my relative came in and asked me if I could come out into the garage as he wanted to let me know what he has done with the car. My husband was on a business trip, and the car was not working so I called him if he could have a look at it. “There was nothing really wrong, just the battery was flat”, as I accidentally let a light on but he advised me to still, when my husband comes back from his trip, to search out a garage as it should not have happened that the battery emptied completely after only one light on during the night. We came back into the house and sat down in the little reading room. “Do you want a cup of tea or coffee?” I asked him. “A tea would be great, with some milk, please. “ I asked how his wife was going and his 7-year-old daughter. He replied they are going all fine. Then after a short pause, he told me that his wife was going in a direction he could not understand. She was starting to read these “spiritual” books. His face expressed utter disgust, and his hand went up to his head. “There is nothing spiritual; this is all an illusion,” he said. This woke me up as me seeing myself as a highly spiritual person thought; I cannot let this now go, I need to tell him that spirituality is true. But at the same moment, my relative’s lifestyle rolled up in front of my inner eyes. He a successful computer expert, big house, big property, a boat, two cars, three holidays a year, vehement football supporter, believing in the doctrine of science for everything like health to planning his life, to what the meaning of life was all about, which was the acquiring of material goods, not doing any harm and death was the end of it all. Spirituality as such is utterly useless he said to me hoping I would nod with my head and support him. He knew I was a counselor, nationally accredited, so his idea of what I was doing was that I use a scientifically approved method to help people who have some kind of emotional problem and emotions are nothing else then………….? Ups here he was not really sure what they were, but this was not up to him to think about. (That is what he said another time) Me now having worked with so many people over many years, knew in my heart of hearts that it is just this spiritual knowledge that can drag people out of the deepest emotional suffering. Why? As someone who is severely depressed will at least in 95 % of cases seize to be so badly depressed if the person begins to feel, see and understand that…………. -they have the power over their destiny, and they are able to change their destiny -there is love in even the greatest of emotional sufferings and also meaning -we are embedded in meaning -our life is deeply meaningful -we are a part of the bigger whole, and we can make something worthwhile as long as we know how. Give this understanding, insight, recognition in any way you can to any depressed person and see them flower. But how to tell this a person who relies up to now only on his intellect and has no time for other things and definitely has no emotional problems ? Will he even listen to my 105 stories I could share with him? From the honesty of my heart, I believe probably not. So if you are like this guy, my relative, lay down this reading as I will not take any effort in trying to convince you of anything, but if you want to know why I believe that we NEED spiritual knowledge to be happy, so we NEED it, then read on. By the way was I grateful that my clever relative turned up, helped me out with the car as I had to drive to the city the next day to a meeting. Really grateful, he is a very nice guy. All I told him was that I do understand why his wife is interested in spiritual things and that I am personally convinced that we are spirits in a physical body and that I use this knowledge in a practical sense pretty much with every client I see. He looked at me perplexed. I thought you are a professional Counsellor. “Yes I am, but I use energy based methods to help my client to help change energy based suffering. “ “Look this is what I do not like about women. They live in la la land; there is no such thing as energy-based suffering. “ Then I asked him, what about heartbreak? What about you would come home, and your wife would tell you she wants a divorce. The pain you feel what is it all about? You feel it in your heart, but no one has physically hurt you there“For heaven’s sake, this has nothing to do with larifari energy, I would miss her as she is materially then not here for me anymore. You know like a dog would miss his food if he would not get fed for a day or two. It is nothing energetically; it is missing someone, something as it is not there. The same as you miss a place you had a marvelous holiday in, there is nothing spiritual, energetic, you just miss this damn place. “ He tried to stay friendly, just to say, but now got up, thinking probably here is another female dreamer, I just had it, I will go to the pub have some beer this will give me good real energy. And he went out of the door telling me, look I have to pick up Jenny in 20 minutes, hope your car works now well and if you need me again, let me know.” And he was gone. Here I was sitting, then got up and went into the kitchen with a nervous feeling and made myself one of this sweet tasting cappuccinos with the hope this would calm me down. Oh yes in his view spirituality was useless, or energy work was useless there was no such thing as these aspects of life. The TV in the formal lounge was on, and I turned the sound louder and sat down with my cappuccino. The woman who was missed for a few days was now found dead in a shallow grave. A man was convicted of her murder, and he was the one who showed police to the place. Her name was Jill Meager. The young woman’s face was all over the news since the last week. Going missing after a visit to the pub. How awful this was and an image from the past came up in my own mind. A painful reminder of a similar happening when I lived in a beautiful area in the Alpes in Europe. I was about 25, a bit younger as this lady who was so cruelly murdered. It was a November day, it was really somehow damp and very foggy on this afternoon, but I did have a day off from my work as a hotel employee and I wanted to make a really very long walk deep into the mountain forest, best also up the hill to get a good workout, and there was a path leading into the forest, up the hill, passing a nice restaurant, down the hill with views across the breathtaking valley overlooking endless rows of high mountains in the distance and this pathway would also lead me back to the settlement I was staying in. Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful views and I was looking forward to it all. So I was passing the temple, a beautiful building used for Hours of Worship and part of the settlement and then I entered the forest. I have to tell you that my own interest in spiritual reality already started when I was 20. How come? As it really came all of a sudden to the forefront. My boyfriend of three years all of a sudden broke up with me for another woman, and I felt this excruciating pain in my lower body since this day, so badly that it literally turned my world upside down. This cannot be all to life. How he treated me? Am I just some object he can dump whenever he wants to? Oh I better not share with you dear reader what went through me at this time, I might do this another time, but what it truly did for me it was pushing me like a 20 tonne truck pushing something, to find and search for answers in relations to why are we here, who are we truly, do we live on after we die or are we only some bodies with a something similar to a computer in our heads? The answers to this and the answers to many more questions I did find in the Grail Message, In The Light of Truth. (Abd Ru Shin) which was since the day I found it and up to this day today and into the future, my favorite book and if you’d send me on an island and I could only take one book, I would definitely choose this one. Okay, in this book I learned about the existence of the so-called ethereal world or other people say to this energy world. How we might not be able to see it, but we can feel it through our intuition, a reality existing other than our physical existence. And here I entered the damp forest and all of a sudden I had a “weird” at least for me” weird “type of sense and a bird sang a sad song and in my head came up this one sentence. “ This is a messenger of death.” I stood still for a moment and thought why is this coming now up in my head, does this bird song remind me on some movies in the past, oh perhaps some horror movie, that must be the case and without a care in the world I continued my walk, when I had the “weird” sense that someone, but there was definitely no one I could see with my physical eyes, but I had this “sense” someone was standing in the path and saying I should go back home and not continue walking. What I thought I was just 3 minutes into the forest, why turning around already? And I thought okay which movie did I see that, as I thought this is some kind of flashback from a movie as I promise you there was no one, no real person there who stood in my way, it was only a sense which my relative, who fixed my car so nicely, would have definitely interpreted as some silly female fantasy based on general anxiety which is based on some overproduction of substances in the body. So I walked on, further and further, and deeper into the forest. The path got smaller, it was winding and here came this huge curve towards the left, and I knew as I have walked this path endless times before, this is a path leading down for a while and then there would be a fork in the path, separating it into two paths then, one small path downwards and one path to the left upwards and both paths did lead to areas of the forest which could had been used for a spooky film as it was so untouched, wild, but also so narrow and surrounded with stony walls or dense forest. So turn left and slowly walked the path down towards this fork which divided the path into two, when I all of a sudden “saw” somehow “ saw” with other eyes then my physical eyes, approximately five little gnomes. Yes, you read right. I saw gnomes. Not with my physical eyes as there were no material gnomes at all but with other eyes. I still can remember after all these years exactly how they looked like, although this does not even matter to the subject I want to explain. Their clothes had the color of the surrounding earth and the dried leaves which covered the late autumn forest floor. These gnomes that I saw with other eyes then physical eyes stood either in the way or some of them jumped literally up and down in front of me and told me to hide behind a bush on the left they pointed to and to do it NOW. There was this vehement urgency to do it and as if under a trance I already walked towards the bush but then my brain started to doubt and although I saw this all, and I heard this all and my energy body was screaming alarm in me, as I did not see it with my physical eyes and did not hear it with my physical ears my brain started to doubt the reality of it and tell me, there is nothing, this is only an illusion. Thinking this I felt all of a sudden this excruciating overwhelming PAIN in my solar plexus area and I turned around to the direction where I was just a minute ago coming from, and I saw not with my physical eyes but with my other eyes a HUGE approximately 2.45 m high monster coming from around the corner towards me. The monster I saw on that day did look as if it was put together with symbols you would paint on a wall as graffiti, expressing hate, lowest animal instincts, aggression, cruelty. Harsh, disharmonious forms and colors screaming at me. I still can see it in my mind’s eye how it was walking towards me and while I was looking at it feeling like under a shock, unable to move, at that very second a physical man appeared on the path. This man was “real” as material real as someone can be in a lonely forest afternoon in foggy November. He was obviously tall and strong looking. Brought shoulders and he was dressed in a beige suit. How weird, a beige suit in the forest for a walk. I saw his face which looked unnatural grey and pale, and I felt ice blood pumping through my veins, his blood which was like ice, going through every cell of my body, the sense of ice cold cruelty. At least this seemed to be transmitted now on to me to my energy body as what was going on in him, or if you have another explanation, let me know. It was my spiritual impression from him, what was energetically happening in this man. What should I do now? The man who naturally now saw me too did not continue stopped walking although he was just 15 meters away from me but made a side step into the forest and searched for something making a lot of noise while shuffling on the floor, as I suppose now he was doing was that he was searching for a stick. A million things seemed to go through my mind in the matter of a second. There is danger, this man is cruel, these all were warnings, and I have not listened to them as I thought in my head these were just my own thoughts mixed up of movies I have seen in the past. I need help, and I stayed where I was, but my whole soul uttered a prayer for help. I said in the prayer that , “I did not trust the warning, here I am, please help me, I know this is a thing of life and death. “ How I knew it, I felt it in every part of my being. I knew that if I would continue walking deeper into the forest this strong looking man could get me easily and the path to get help from other people was for me literally blocked altogether for at least another 35 minutes due to where these paths were leading to. All of a sudden I heard a voice. It said this is a test for you, in how far you do trust. I knew it was and I knew I ignored the help from my intuition in ignoring all these intuitions I had before. This voice continued. “Turn around towards this man now. Walk towards him, (the man was actually still beside the path frantically searching for something on the forest floor). Pass this man, don’t look into his eyes, I repeat don’t look into his eyes, pass him calmly, focus only on the help surrounding you and when you have passed him and walked about 2 meters behind him start to run and run until you have reached the settlement. Run for your life.” I straight away turned around and did what the voice asked me to. I felt a huge energy armor around me, and I sensed this was not coming from me but from these “helpers” who also tried to warn me beforehand. Like a wall made of strong Light. I focused all my intention on complete trust to these helpers and God, and it took me some effort not to get overwhelmed by the immense fear, which was also lurking in a part of my body. I did not look into his eyes, passed him and then run for about 15 minutes until I totally shaken, exhausted and still deeply shocked about what just happened, reached the settlement where I lived. Two of my co-workers who saw me entering the house came towards me and asked what was happening, why I looked so in horror and why I was shaking, I told them, and the incident was brought before the settlement directors and to my astonishment a big announcement was made the next day that there is officially a warning and no one should at this point enter into the forest alone but only walk in company until otherwise advised. So looking back on this little experience I had I wondered what my relative would say about it. He probably would explain things away with, there was probably never any danger, I was still having fantasies in my head, and perhaps the guy was afraid of me. So this tall, muscular guy was afraid of a 25-year-old young woman who had a very slim build and was soft and vulnerable looking, really girlish and younger as my real age. And why was this guy just coming around the corner when I had this vision of the monster? What a coincidence. Like is it not obvious that my intuitions, my emotions I had on this path, had a connection to the “energies” which this man fostered in himself and gave out from him into the energetic surrounding? I could feel his thoughts, his ideas, what he was up to in regards to me. Who knows he might have been following me already all the way when I entered the forest. Although we cannot see these volitions of a person with the physical eyes, nevertheless my energy body “read” the message as the message of danger. Something was energetically wrong, and I got it, in intuitions, etc. How these things looked like or how I got the message is as such irrelevant in my view, all that is relevant here is that we are perfectly capably to see, feel, sense, hear more than just hard physical reality. I felt the energies coming from this man, and these energies were real in the energy world, and as I am a spirit in a physical body, I also have an energy body, very much capable of reading and sensing these realities. How would it have been if this young then cruelly murdered woman perhaps taken the time to listen to her energy body? She was distracted by thinking about her ill father as she just was inquiring about his wellbeing on the phone with her brother minutes before her then murderer talked to her. But if she would perhaps be open for this what came from this man, perhaps she would had felt that this guy who talked to her beforehand as this was shown on TV captured by a security camera in front of a bridal shop, perhaps she would had felt that this was super dangerous, and she would have asked someone for help, or not walk on into a certain lonely street and take a longer path which was more busy but safe. I do not know, and I do not want to suggest something here which might not be applied to her case, but we do have an energy body which can sense the reality of volitions of other people as these volitions other people have, affect the energy world. …………………. Here I was sitting, coming back into the room from this for me at that time life changing memory still holding on to my now cold and half-empty cup of cappuccino, looking onto the TV. There was this Big Brother ad on, which now totally distracted me. A bunch of people living in an artificial house on Dreamworld being observed day and night by Big Brother and the viewers could listen to what they said inclusive private conversations, worries, etc. and watch what they do in the house, day and night. Unspoken thoughts were naturally excluded and Big Brother and us the watcher had only that what was offered to the physical senses, what we could hear, see, etc. Even the contestants wondered about that, as for why would they be evicted by their fellow contestants who were outwardly friendly to them but in their hearts wanted them obviously out of the house? So no one just watching or listening to others can truly get the whole truth. What is going truly on inside a person can be veiled from outside reality. Nevertheless watching that on TV brought me back to the now again as I was smiling, I would never like to have a Big Brother watching my every move, private things like showering, listening to private conversations, etc. day and night. What type of people would like to expose this to the general public? Perhaps they like to put on a show. Me a very private person myself, just wondered why someone would expose themselves on TV, but I did not try to judge it as good or bad, just did not understand it at that point as to protect my privacy, my space was for me always very important. There is more to learn for me about people and why we do what we do or why we do not do what we do. I mean they live in a house with artificial grass, are under the mercy of Big Brother and of themselves as they evict each other each Monday, why would anyone like to be the player in this game? Money? Are they perhaps bored in their normal life? Wish for fame? Why was I even thinking about that? Perhaps I needed to learn something here. , My thoughts got interrupted as the phone rings. My dad from Germany calls, talking about how they are going, what’s up and all these interesting things. I hang up after half an hour feeling refreshed as always when I talk to my parents. I walk into my bedroom put on my pyjamas and start to read in the Grail Message,” In the Light of Truth.” Without spiritual knowledge we do not live as true human beings, we do not know how we can protect ourselves, we do not know why we are here, and we do not know who we are. We NEED spiritual knowledge.
Thoughts on Prayer Jide Adefope Human beings are continually and unconditionally supported by benevolence, made manifest in the cosmic Laws. Nature is governed by these immutable Laws that are relevant everywhere and at all times, and on which we too, as human beings, depend. However, we rarely sense the love and wisdom embraced by these laws. We can only truly experience this through the exertion of our spiritual core of being, which expresses itself in intuitive perception, the inner voice that accompanies every human being. Our spirit has become lethargic and walled in from lack of exertion. Our over-cultivated intellect has created an imbalance, causing the finer coverings around the spirit to become dense and thereby dimming its radiance. As a result, today we only rarely hear the whispered warnings and guidance of our inner voice. The world to which our spirit spark belongs has become alien to us and almost unattainable. We imagine that what we see, touch and feel with our earthly senses constitutes the reality of the entire Creation. We saunter along indifferently through life, with only small earthly aspirations and goals in mind. The sacred duty to investigate the real purpose of our existence hardly touches us. And if it does, we tend to think there is no answer. We extol individual freedom above all else, together with the potency symbolized by the new gods of market ideologies and the engines of science that has presumed to give definitive answers to the big and small questions of existence. On the one hand, human attitudes seem more tolerant under the principles of democracy, yet intolerance grows. Atheism spreads with dogmatic intensity, along with the view of life as the fluke in a vast cosmic lottery of chemistry, side by side with fundamentalist caricatures of faith with their footprint of atrocities. Ideas about God come in many forms; seen as all-knowing, all-loving, ever-just, yet also vengeful, jealous, terrifying and even merciless towards the disobedient. Like the Greek deities, the Biblical God seems much like us except that He is more powerful, one who in the manner of pagan gods must be propitiated with sacraments, penance, sacrifices, obeisance, and prayer. Plainly this is anthropomorphism of the highest degree. These notions, though understandable as human projections, exemplify very primitive thinking. Devaluing, menacing and inadequate are the conceptions we habitually hold of God and His Creation, in the end never getting away from the human standpoint. Yet ever-present help surrounds us in the working of the perfect cosmic Laws woven by God into His Creation from the beginning. By observing these Laws, we vaguely perceive a glimmer of His stupendous magnitude. No need is so great as to be without hope, no pain without a blessing! The only times we fail are when we want to force our own will, without regard to the eternal order, and when we do things in half measures and rely solely on our earthly intellect. But we choose to stay tuned to the confused noise of the world and do not hear the awakening voice of the spirit. It speaks to us deep within, having first to penetrate many walls, surmount many obstacles, before it can reach our ego. But it does not give up. Nevertheless, we are in a quandary, not knowing how to access this help that is so close to us. We don’t even realize that we can do so by prayer. Nor do we really know what it means to pray, even when urged to do so in times of great joy or deep pain. Praying is not pleading and begging in anxiety and need, not habitually babbling empty phrases in dull submission. In a serious and heartfelt prayer, a human soul opens itself before his Lord and Creator. He kneels at His feet in the greatest fervor he can command. He is uplifted by virtue of the magnetic power of the ray of love that has flowed to him. New life, new energy flows through the spirit that looks up to God in humility. It is really through our gratitude for the experience of love inherent in the automatic activity of the cosmic Laws that we can get to know and learn to experience the real power of prayer. Help can reach us at all times by adjusting to the Will of the Most High manifest in the cosmic Laws. And even if we bring forward a particular wish in prayer, benefit can only reach us lawfully in return through reciprocal action. To kneel down in wordless, fervent prayer before the greatness of God and beseech Him in a boundless longing to bring to deed the object of our prayer according to His Will, is to get to know the blissful answer that comes from on High when the supplicant is selfless and humble. He who has never experienced within himself the glorious majesty of God and the grandeur of His Creation, he who has never perceived his own smallness deep within, does not yet know what it means to pray: a profound self-surrender, a single jubilant soul seeking to connect with God. The power of prayer is transforming. Luminous threads are attracted to the person who seeks this connection with the Light. These threads can reach him finally and become the firm anchor he can hold on to in every dis-tress. He must then tend and maintain the path that leads to the Helper. The way thereto for the human spirit is a voluntary adjustment to His Will. It is like an earthly path: if we travel on it every day, it will become familiar to us, it will begin to appear shorter and ever easier, even in the dark of the most excruciating experiences. A tremendous power lies in the inner life of man! If it is developed and used for the good, it uplifts our surroundings; if it is darkened through pursuing base aims, it presses it into the depths of darkness. If humanity were united and completely filled with good volition, then the earth would rise upwards again to the place the Creator had chosen for it from the beginning but from which humanity choose to stray. So great is the power of prayer that it can open gates to higher realms and draw on the power of the Light that is God. We can wrap ourselves in this Light energy and protect ourselves against base interests and temptations. If we were to live completely in it, we would wondrously transform everything around us. How often do we desperately struggle to help somebody off the wrong track. However, oftentimes he closes himself to us. He thinks he is misunderstood, misjudged and does not see his mistake. His intellectual reasoning hinders the recognition of his spirit. If we turn instead, in prayer, to his spirit, and ask for help, it is wonderful to experience how the person, himself unaware, can be transformed. A web of luminous threads envelops him and keeps debasing forms at bay. One inhibition after the other, to which he is still clinging erroneously, can fall away from him under the influence of these light energies. He becomes brighter within himself because his environment has grown brighter. We often feel an inner radiance emanating from a complete stranger, whose language we may not even know. We understand as it were, without understanding. We are in receipt of psychic radiance, popularly known as 'good vibes.' A prayerful life, in all simplicity and naturalness, connecting us to the radiant power of the Most High, is happiness and bliss! And this happiness is within reach of every human spirit. In striving upwards to the Light, all that is base, dense and evil is left forever behind us!
In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message, by Abd-ru-shin (Oskar Ernst Bernhardt, 1875 - 1941) In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message is a classic work that offers clear and perceptive answers to questions which challenge every human being. Written between the years 1923 - 1938, it is a collection of 168 essays addressing all spheres of life ranging from God and the Universe to the Laws in Creation, the meaning of life, responsibility, free will, intuition and the intellect, the ethereal world and the beyond, justice and love. It answers eternal questions such as what does it mean to be human, what is the purpose of life on Earth, and what happens to "me" when I die. In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message explains the causes and significance of the unprecedented crises facing humanity, and our responsibilities to the future. Concerning In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message, Abd-ru-shin writes, "I wish to fill the gaps which so far have remained unanswered in the souls of men as burning questions, and which never leave any serious thinker in peace." Throughout The Grail Message readers are urged to weigh questions and answers intuitively, to confront them within their own life experiences, and only to believe that which they can perceive inwardly. Only through this process can one reach true conviction in one's life. Editorial Reviews In the Light of Truth is a classic work written some 60 years ago [that] carries the weight of a time-tested message (one million copies in print world-wide.) The essential truth, the desire to challenge us, to confront questions and answers within ourselves, shines through. The serious seeker, the reader who is willing to make the effort this book requires, will find inspiration, guidance, encouragement, and truth. -- NAPRA ReView, Fall, 1995
In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message, which Oskar Ernst Bernhardt began to write in 1923 in Dresden, has now been translated into almost all the civilized languages of the western hemisphere and is available ... around the globe. It was forbidden in the 'Third Reich,' but was also on the list of banned literature in East Germany. These periods of prohibition (in East Germany more than fifty years) markedly curtailed the possibility of disseminating In the Light of Truth and making it known. One wonders why a non-political book like In the Light of Truth was still regarded by political systems as a 'source of danger.' The reason, perhaps, is that it sets up personal awareness of responsibility and individual freedom of choice against all conformity. Furthermore, dogmatic limitations are alien to it, since it gives a comprehensive understanding, on the basis of the Laws of Creation, of the world and of life--beyond nationalities, races, and creeds. -- Dresdner Nachrichten, November 1991 From the Publisher With over 1,000,000 copies in print, In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message, by Abd-ru-shin (Oskar Ernst Bernhardt, 1875 - 1941) has captivated readers with clear-eyed wisdom for over 50 years. Outlawed by the Nazis and banned by Communist rulers, Abd-ru- shin's masterwork now speaks to new generations grappling with eternal questions like, Who am I?, Why am I here?, and What happens when I die? His answers are intended for the seeker who is willing to experience his explanations with a full heart and open mind. As Abd-ru-shin himself said, "The Message will strike only those who still carry within them a spark of truth and the yearning to be true human beings." In the Light of Truth is now available in 17 languages.
Good day parents, mothers or fathers, grandparents, aunts or friends. Can your hands support the healing of your child? I would like to give you some answers to that.
Here I am talking about real Hands on Healing by the way (Healing Magnetism using our hands) and I would like to share with you my own story. Before I do but we need to cover some understandings. And yes, my general answer to that question is a resounding YES.
Now to let you know, I am a professional Counsellor/Psychotherapist and I have been seeing adults and children in my private practice since 2004. Now over the years, my interest in so-called outsider approaches grew more and more. Here I am talking about modalities that work with the so-called energy field around a human being. Hard minded scientists do not like people using the term energy if it is relating to such areas, as they believe it does not belong to that. Now I do disagree with them and if you do not mind dear parents, follow me here on an exploration of energy healing a bit more as when we want to understand WHY we can heal or support healing in our children when we use our hands for healing, we more likely will give it a go.
For thousands of years, investigators have faced the big questions: What is it that, ‘acting from within,’ enables life and movement? Today, the concept of ‘energy’ (from ancient Greek ‘en’ = inside, ‘ergon’= working) takes on an everyday use beyond science, for example in describing personal moods. Thus can someone be said to be ‘bursting with energy,’ to suffer from ‘lack of energy’ or to be agitated by ‘energy blockages,’ something we also say when we conduct BioMagnetic Healing with Hands? We will now explore that concept of energy a bit more from many different directions. We will not be able to cover all that should be mentioned here, but everyone who would like to delve into energy healing and Healing Magnetism in depth, we recommend the accredited Practitioner training offered at. www.healing-magnetism.com nevertheless the following gives us some hints and insights that we will be able to use. Let’s see what we discover.
As far back, the ancient Greek delved into the phenomenon that we are surrounded and permeated by energy, and searched for laws governing the ‘movements of life.’ They discovered that there are different forms of energy and that no changes or developments would be possible without energy.
Then from the 19th century, essential principles were formulated that are still recognized as the basis of science:
Energy is ‘the ability to perform work.’ It is needed, for example, to accelerate the body, to heat or make electric current flow. Also, all biological processes depend on energy.
Energy occurs in different forms (we speak, for example of ‘thermal energy’ or ‘chemical energy’); however, the total energy always remains the same in a closed system. According to ‘energy conservation,’ it can neither be increased nor decreased.
Energy can be converted from one form to another, but only within a ‘hierarchical order’: heat (thermal energy) can only transfer from a body of higher temperature to a body of lower temperature, but not in reverse.
Energy flows as long as there are different energy levels because differences in level tend to equalize. In Healing Magnetism we talk here about the Principle of Transmission that says that the person giving the healing should be of better health (having more energy available and when your child is sick, autistic, suffering under eating disorder, I can promise you that you will have more energy as your child) then the person receiving the treatment. Energy flows from the stronger to the weaker organism.
Numerous experiments have led to these findings and are confirmed by simple everyday observations. The heat from a heater or radiator, for example, can only radiate to the cold surroundings, but the heater itself cannot be made warmer by draining thermal energy from the cooler surroundings.
Looking at the big world events against the backdrop of these principles means there would be life and movement in the universe only as long as different energy levels exist. Once the cosmic bodies have ‘burned out’ and everything only has a uniform temperature that would be the end – for us, for all creatures, and for planets, suns, galaxies: the universe would die the so-called heat death.
Today’s scientific worldview is based on the same scenario. However, it should be noted in the first place that the principles described are based only on experiences, they are not irrefutably proved. Secondly, in particular, it remains unclear whether the universe can be regarded as a closed system.
Opinions differ on this key question.
Materialism with ‘feet of clay.’ The prevailing materialistic view of life assumes that the energy system that is the universe cannot be subject to any influence from outside. Although it remains unclear how and why the most comprehensive ‘outside influence’ by far, the Big Bang, came about. That said, the view was formed that the total energy established at the beginning of the universe would only temporarily – as long as there are differences in level – enable the phenomena of life. There is, therefore, no higher reality with which our life and fate can interact. All subjective experiences with unmeasurable energies – whether it concerns Far-eastern life energy concept ‘Chi,’ the phenomena of aura or astral body, Healing Magnetism, the flow of energy through body meridians, chakras or whatever finer-material phenomena are called – would thus be mere imagination. ‘Straight-laced’ scientists consider it calculating or simply naïve if esoteric or spiritually minded people ‘misapply’ the concept of ‘energy’ to the non-measurable scheme of things. In their opinion, the semblance of scientific approach and objective reality is then merely evoked, while in reality utter ignorance, vague conjectures or simple errors lurk behind.
But perhaps misuse of the concept of ‘energy’ – which describes that which ‘works from within’ – lies less in the description of subjective experiences, but, quite the reverse, in the one-sided scientific definitions, since some naturalists and philosophers are convinced, in the meantime, that a purely materialistic view of the world stands on feet of clay.
This is especially indicated with experiments and observations in the microcosm. It is clear, for example, that matter is not really in the form of a union of very small particles, as long as envisaged. ‘Basically, there is no matter. At least not in the usual sense. There is only a web of relationships, constant change, liveliness’, the physicist Hans Peter Duerr described in a magazine interview the nature of all the material things. “We find it difficult to imagine this. Primarily, there exists only connection, without the connective material foundation. We could also call it spirit. Something that we can only experience spontaneously and do not interfere with. Matter and energy occur secondarily in appearance – as a sort of congealed, solidified spirit. According to Albert Einstein, the matter is only a diluted form of energy. But its background is not even refined energy but something completely different, vibrancy.”
Duerr thinks that it would be better to apply verbs to the subatomic world because it does not embrace objects, nouns or things that we can touch and grasp. There are only movements, processes, connections, and information, thus giving us a glimpse of the primordial ground of liveliness.
As soon as one wants to observe its smallest components and define things in a traditional manner, matter dissolves into ‘nothingness.’ Even more spectacular is the view that the whole of reality, as we human beings experience it, manifests only through the interaction with our consciousness. The so-called quantum theory throws up by phenomena in the microcosms a completely new worldview that is in stark contrast to materialism. Some key points of consideration:
Quantum objects have a field character and are not bound to a specific place. They can so to speak be in several places at the same time.
Only by our observation do they manifest as particles in normal space-time; this makes the field ‘materialize’ in places.
Hence there is no separation of subject and object and also no world that is working only according to mechanical principles.
Consciousness is not a concomitant of matter, does not arise from it but is, quite the contrary, at the center. Everything material is an appearance in the consciousness!
The energy of consciousness
The approach of attributing a decisive role to consciousness in the making of the world may well seem to most people today as too far-fetched. Our worldview and thus the logic our thinking, our language, in short, the whole range of our assumptions or hopes, is based on everyday experiences which influential scientists such as Newton, Descartes or Darwin have condensed by experiments to theories. However, consciousness has up to now remained ignored in all formulations and descriptions. Therefore, the so-called inner world of a person- our experiences, perceptions, expectations, and motivations and so on – is considered unpredictable and also an insignificant side issue for world events. Only (supposedly) objective material reality is deemed critical: consciousness, in contrast, is seen simply as a side effect of biological development, specifically of the brain.
It is our spiritual attitude that is at least to 50 percent responsible for how healthy we are and in reality not only 50 percent, but it does affect every part of us.
Therefore the materialistic worldview does not offer any explanations for some phenomena of daily life. Why is there precognition, telepathy between people or between humans and animals? Why are healing energies or the so-called placebo effect helpful? Why does motivation as well as good thoughts have an invigorating effect? There are undoubted scientific studies for all these effects – but no logical explanation by a material worldview, because we have not yet even begun to understand what consciousness is. The assumption that it arises from brain activity is supported merely by the observation that processes of consciousness have something to do with brain waves. But it can just as well be inferred from such observations that the brain functions do mediate consciousness and thus are a tool to receive and transmit impulses of consciousness. Always, only effects of consciously experienced processes or events can be described.
If quantum philosophy now makes consciousness central to world events, then it leads to the remarkable end that consciousness has not just arisen from the brain, but rather the brain is a result of consciousness. For every material, development is, therefore, a result of spiritual causes.
While the majority of scientists today still assume that every event follows a ‘rising causality’, thus that future effects entails causes lying in the past, the ‘falling causality principle’ dominates in the new quantum philosophical view of the world: An already spiritually moulded goal acts from the future into the present and provides the framework for all processes of formation and development.
What has always existed as well as what originates anew is thus the result of a process of consciousness. The really important factor is not then the ‘visible effect’, with which all science deals, but the non-measurable impulse which proceeds the effect; not the ‘dance of atoms, which the observer beholds, but the ‘music’ that gives way to this dance of life – in a wide variety of individual choreographies.
This view of things also opens up a broader understanding of the concept of ‘energy.’ For if consciousness essentially acts 'from within’ and gives impulses to all happenings, then the question whether ‘system’ within the material reality is open or is closed is no longer particularly relevant. And all ‘energies’ that affect our lives can – whether they are measurable or not – have meaning and be effective.
Interestingly, from such ‘theory of consciousness’ bridges can also very well be built to many religions and wisdom teachings, all of which comment on higher realms – on a ‘fine-material or ethereal world’ for example, on the ‘kingdom of God’ or on ‘paradise’ – and regard the will of the human being, thus the activities and engagements of his consciousness as key to his future fate and wellbeing. ‘Whatever a man sows that shall he also reap,’ the Bible teaches.
Abd-ru-shin, the author of the work, In the Light of Truth, (www.grailmessage.com) made clear in the framework of a question and answered the essence of energy: ‘Energy is spirit!’ The nature of the spiritual which moves the material world, therefore, goes back to higher, non-material ‘radiations.’ How this relates to Healing Magnetism is of great interest by the way, and we cover this in great detail in the internationally accredited Practitioner course, whereas here we will stay more with the basics that will be enough for you to start to treat yourself and your family.
Maybe religion and science again will find a common basis of approach. The physicist and Nobel laureate Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976), for example, saw a scientific path to knowledge in optimistic religious terms: ‘The first gulp from the cup of natural science will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom, God is waiting.
‘Finer-material’ energies Whoever ventures today onto terrain not (yet) secured by science and wants to fathom the so-called finer-material energies faces different expressions and traditional terms that are difficult to reconcile. Nevertheless, there is broad agreement on some basics.
Every kind of life and form absorbs and gives off energy, converts, and stores it. We see two energetic systems, on the one hand, measurable ‘gross-material’ energy, which is used for the body’s biochemical energy supply and flows through the ‘energy chain’ sun-food-water-oxygen-breathing, etc. And on the other hand, ‘fine-material’ energy, which is responsible for the domain of information, thus for the regulation of coarse-or gross-material transactions.
Fine-material energy is associated with finer bodies of the human being – called, for example, ‘astral body’ or ‘soul body.’ The outer, visible body, which we can perceive and feel as single, is only a ‘coarse cloak’ that is penetrated and influenced by the energy field of the finer-material body. The fine-material energy chain’ conveys information and is connected with spiritual consciousness. Consciousness does not arise from the material body, but from the immaterial spirit. When we conduct Healing sessions, we will effect these areas.
All physical bodies develop through impulses from the fine-material world, which is called, for example, the ‘ethereal matrix,’ ‘inter-world’ or ‘morphogenetic field.’ The visible in the coarse-material world is only the consolidation, the condensation of what is happening on the finer planes. Energy materializes (in a certain frequency spectrum) through consciousness and information.
If one wanted to relate the gross material and the fine material aspects of the atom to each other, one would say: only 0,000000000000001 percent corresponds to gross material, but 99,999999999999999 percent to fine material.
Known examples of fine-material energy systems that have led to remarkable empirical knowledge are the ‘meridians’ described in oriental medicine- tracks of life energy- or ‘chakras,’ energy transformation points of the body which play an important role in therapy. Also in Healing Magnetism we treat the chakras and unblock the meridian system as well as bring Healing Energy into these areas, and we will learn in this course the basics about that. An energetic field surrounding the physical body and responsible as a ‘blueprint’ of the individual human figure for the development and formation of the body in the material domain is called the ‘astral body.’ In Healing Magnetism we work on the astral body level.
Rupert Sheldrake and the morphic field
Among those investigating the fine-material fields today are established scientists, including the British biologist Rupert Sheldrake, who has published more than 80 major works and belongs to several scientific societies (such as the ‘Cambridge Philosophical Society’ or the ‘Society for Experimental Biology.’ For example, he explored the navigation ability of homing pigeons. How do these animals succeed in finding their way home over hundreds of kilometers? Even a ‘magnetic sense’ could not explain this ability. Someone may hold a compass in his hands and indeed know where the north is – but that does not mean he can come home.
Sheldrake also looked into the question of how forms take shape in nature or how learning processes work. Animal studies confirmed, for example, that what animals of a previous generation had learned can be learned more easily and quickly by the next generation.
Sheldrake concluded that there must be a universal ‘field’ which governs or ‘codes’ all the processes of development, thus the development of form as well as the process of learning. Using a ‘morphic field’- Sheldrake coined this term in 1973, later he also spoke of the ‘memory of nature’- a form that already exists in one plane can easily arise in another place. This field, for example, also controls the exact appearance of a life form and ensures coordination between organisms of a species. Phenomena such as the formation of bird flight, construction of anthills or long-distance transference of impulses of consciousness (telepathy) can relatively easily be explained by this theory.
Sheldrake’s ‘fields’ essentially point to fine-material backgrounds. He has long been convinced that materialism, together with the restriction of all scientific considerations to coarse material processes, is obsolete. He calls this attitude ‘science delusion’ (the title of one of his recent books) and notes that non-material realities must henceforth be incorporated in our worldview. Only then will science succeed in approaching those central phenomena of life and consciousness that remain ignored because scientists give these a wide berth…..at least officially.
Fritz-Albert Popp and the light in cells
The German physicist Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp investigates so-called biophotons, light emission by living cells. In his view, the cells of an organism control their metabolic events and communicate with each other by biophotons. Biophotons transport information and create a coherent field in which each cell is connected to every other cell and knows what to do. 90 percent of the biophotons is thus emitted by DNA in the cell nucleus. Biophotons coordinate all the biochemical events in the human body. Their radiation can be measured with highly sensitive devices.
Research suggests ‘that cells absorb not only light energy (=photons) from sunlight but also save the information and the order it contains and that these are made available for the metabolic processes taking place in the cells. The coherence, the order of light, appears to be directly related to the order in biological cells.
Thus biophotons provide information about the energetic state of cells. Weak or diseased cells emit little and above all, chaotic light; in contrast, healthy cells show a strong and structured light emission. Disease and aging in cells go hand in hand with a drop in biophoton concentration. In Popp’s view (also), every illness can be contributed to a light deficit in the cell. Biophotons are from this perspective a measure for ‘life energy.’
The human body can, therefore, be regarded as a ‘light mammal,’ whose main ‘food source’ is sunlight. ‘Without the light of the sun there would be no biophotons, then no cell communication and thus no ‘life,’ says Popp. ‘We virtually live on light.’
In a series of daily experiments, the physician measured the photon emissions from the hand of a healthy test person. Analysis of the data showed that the light emission followed certain patterns- biological rhythms at 7, 14, 32, 80 and 270 days when the emissions were identical.
Popp also investigated some cancer patients. They all lacked these periodic rhythms as well as the coherence of the light. An indication, perhaps, that these patients had lost their ‘connection with the world’?
In contrast, patients with multiple sclerosis showed a too high degree of coherence. Excessive ‘cooperative harmony’ apparently prevents flexibility – as if too many soldiers marching in step across a bridge thereby cause it to collapse. Coherence could, therefore, be regarded as an ‘optimum state between chaos and order.’
In any case, light in cells appears to be a key to well-being and health- and thus to what is experienced subjectively as ‘life energy.’ Dr. Popp also explains the effect of homeopathy by the absorption of biophotons. He is of the opinion that electromagnetic signals could explain the effect of acupuncture. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the body has deep in the tissues and invisible meridian system through which flows invisible energy which the Chinese call ‘Chi’ or ‘life force.’ This Chi presumably enters through the acupuncture points and flows to deeper situated organ structures (which do not correspond with those of western biology) in order and provide them with energy. The disease occurs when this energy is blocked along with their channels. In Popp’s view, the meridian system could represent a kind of ‘waveguide’ and direct the body’s energies to certain zones. On the same level also the transition of Healing Energies in Healing Magnetism works.
Dr. Popp is also a researcher for whom science is not exhausted in materialism and wants above all to include the phenomena of consciousness. Popp states ‘…it seems only logical to assume that life in its urge to express itself must follow a plan, a basic structure, which it can resort to in its manifestation and reactions all the way to the cell nucleus. Call the intelligence behind it whatever you want – but there must be an order-creating force for the development and emergence and the interaction of participants in this universe…..and every ‘template’ also bears the signature of the conscious force. In my opinion, everything is rooted in the light.’ (In Healing Magnetism we use light and colored light to effect harmonization of the energy field.)
Ulrich Warnke and quantum philosophy The studies and theories of scientists like Rupert Sheldrake or Fritz-Albert Popp exemplify how the world of science is drawing near ancient teachings of wisdom or spiritual traditions and thus also allowing for the reality of finer-material events.
The German biologist Ulrich Warnke goes one step further with an integrated worldview which has consciousness at the center – as ‘an entity beyond our body (…..) energy that can change matter.’
The idea that the ‘life energy’ of our spiritual consciousness acts in a forming and shaping manner in the world is not anew. As humans, we assume simply that we can deliberately shape our lives and for this, we have personal responsibility. This presupposes that our conscious will, in the end, has a decisive influence on all developments. However, it is unusual that this reality is substantiated scientifically since human will, intentions, thoughts, and perceptions are not regarded in the materialistic view of the world as relevant factors for the course of events. In contrast, one can also find conclusions formulated by the biologist Warnke readily in some fine spiritual teachings. He writes: ‘The first step to changing our tangible reality starts out (…) from our will and our strong emotional desire. The subsequent chain reaction is mapped out without our being able to stop it. Once initiated, the creative process continues automatically like a domino effect and becomes our fate. The point is that we can influence our fate in this way in this long-term only by our strongly perceived thoughts and desires. (…..) It lies in all our hands to change the world for the better or worse. (….) We benefit from immeasurably great energy equally flowing through everything. From the smallest atom to the boundless cosmos this energy flows through everything that exists. We find it in every stone, every plant, every animal, every human being. Unlike the stone or plant, the human being can focus and thereby reinforce the cosmic energy – just like a magnifying glass can intensely focus the sun’s rays. Lively perception in a human takes over the function of a focus lens. Thoughts then turn into bearers of the focused energy, the will or volition determines the goal, and the wish or desire activates the process of realization. Provided this chain of events runs unhindered, an energy field is channeled, which leaves visible traces as far as the quantum domain of the atoms. (…)
Therefore a person bears responsibility for his actions already at the stage when he or she decides on a wish, a plan or action. In the interworld, there is no difference between thought and deed. Good or bad intentions already create reality. If all human beings realized this, they would essentially be more careful.’
But when we realize such abilities of a human being we also can understand why Healing Magnetism works. Human beings can open up to the life energy and absorb it into their hands and guide it on to the other person, or also to themselves for healing purposes. Important is our focus and intention here too, as intention guides energy. In every country of the world, we find people who all of a sudden discover their healing abilities. Some of them feel an energy field between their hand which they then start to use to affect another person’s body and bring healing.
The concept of ‘interworld’ in the sense of Warnke describes a ‘field’ beyond material reality. Like Rupert Sheldrake, Warnke believes that our conscious (and also unconscious) inner world connects with this field – for example, in remembering something: “Because our experiences are stored away in the interworld, we transcend the concrete sensory experience in the act of remembering – for memory occurs beyond time and space. It is purely virtual. (…) As soon as we recall former experiences, we resonate with the interworld where these results are accessible as information complexes.’
‘Interworld’ is a makeshift term to describe energies, potentials or realities beyond the space-time dimension perceptible by the senses. Whether it gains acceptance remains to be seen.
The same applies to the popular concept of ‘zero point field,’ which is sometimes used to describe the basis for interactions between mind and matter. Some quantum physicists assume that consciousness has its origin in a comprehensive field which pervades the whole of Creation. The term ‘zero point field’ describes ‘immense field forces of the subatomic level’ (Warnke). Traditional names for ‘life energy,’ such as Chi, Od, Orgon or ether, are linked accordingly with ‘zero-point energy.’ All the known forms of energy would, therefore, originate in zero point energy. This universal energy would also be used with every spiritual intention, and also we use it to conduct BioMagnetic Healing sessions.
Antennas to the ‘universal matrix.’ In current theories, this energy field is envisaged as a ‘matrix,’ from which all matter arises in a condensed form, as every matter is predominantly – almost 100 percent – space devoid of mass. Warnke: “What we perceive as material worlds are only condensations within a field. (….) The matter of the universe is made up of only three components: proton, neuron, and electron. Depending on how they are combined, elements with very diverse properties such as the specific atomic weight arise. However, quantum physics proves that matter, as solid and unchanging as it may seem to us, is, in the end, an energy vortex with characteristic condensations.
‘Our body is also made up of such energy vortices in the flow of universal energy. They condense in the micro and macro range to a constant form, to structure and shape to be able to work in earthly conditions. This energetic constitution of the body makes us energy and information channels, able to transmit and receive energy and information.’
In Healing Magnetism we learn how to affect the energy field, how to open to healing energy and use it for the benefit of healing. Here we open up in prayer first, and we use our hands to guide the energy to where it is needed.
Some researchers believe that vortex-like spirals, as occur everywhere in nature, are the key to the immeasurable reservoir of life energy. Therefore, the geometric spiral shape would be the ideal antenna to concentrate and store energy. This would underpin the special significance of the 100 billion ‘life energy antennas’ in the human body – the DNA spirals in the cells. They are in resonance with the ‘interworld’ or the ‘zero point field’ and draw all life impulses from there.
The ordinary day consciousness linked with the physical brain can be described as a resonance phenomenon by this approach. Insights, knowledge, ideas would then not arise in the head but are so do speak ‘downloaded’ from the field by the brain, which acts as an ‘information antenna.’
What remains, are personal consequences
The different concepts, images and theories about ‘life energy’ under discussion, and contradictory ideas of what holds the world together at the core make it nowadays practically impossible to formulate well-founded statements which universally describe the central phenomena of life. But the personal ‘energy management’ remains an important foundation for the health and well-being of each person.
According to traditional ideas we have a part of our life energy provided from birth, another part we need to acquire in the course of life from surroundings – from food and respiration. The acquired energy is functional; it is subject to a cycle of consumption and renewal. We must, similar to a battery, again and again, recharge with energy. We can obtain a certain measure of energy through the right choice and composition of our food, through correct breathing and also the balance of our emotions.
Yes, it is not just the measure of energy that determines our physical and emotional health, but also its harmonious flow through the body.
Due to the modern lifestyle, the advancing environmental degradation, the denatured food, and stress, less life energy are available to the individual today. Added are personal factors such as psychic and physical burdens. If the body has too little energy, regeneration is also delayed. All adverse life circumstances generate inhibitory emotions and cost energy. Such blockages in energy flow can be removed and balanced via Healing Magnetism.
It is more important than ever to recharge the ‘batteries’ through as good a conscious lifestyle as possible because every increase in life energy promotes physical fitness and spiritual growth. Breathing or physical exercises (outdoors) can also help to bring this about as can regular self-treatments with Healing Magnetism (or receiving treatment). In Healing Magnetism we also find a solution to emotional conflicts – via opening to helpful luminous energies in prayer.
In any case, it is about new consciousness impulses, because The real quintessence of healing is in becoming aware!
Now that we went through some understandings, I would like to share with you a bit my own story. My start with Healing Magnetism was applying it to my son.When we apply Healing Magnetism to our children, we can encourage the healthy development of our child. How did I start using it? When my son was about 14, he began to experience sleeping problems. He even mentioned that the teachers wondered about his tiredness at school. He could not fall asleep at night. I tried many things with him. As a professional Counsellor (Psychotherapist) I had at that time already included Energy body modalities like EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques which I at that time already practiced to the Master and Trainer level) and I did lots of Tapping on him, while we also reflected together on the happenings of the day. (EFT Tapping with your child can be quite beneficial as it removes blockages in the meridian/acupuncture system) . As an accredited Flower Essences Practitioner I also mixed some remedies according to his emotional state, and he happily took them, and they were also supporting to some level. As he had some trouble at school with concentration as he was so bored, he was also upset that some teachers constantly reminded him about his character flaw and I talked about the situation with him using my Counselling and NLP skills. Nothing seemed to solve the problem of his insomnia. Good Sleep very important for us.
At that time I started to study BioMagnetic Healing from a book which taught Healing Magnetism based on the principles of Franz Anton Mesmer. For me, the general ideas and also approach was not difficult to grasp as over the years I have studied many similar methods, but still in that way as described pointing even to the spiritual principles I found it exceptionally easy to embrace this method. I thought why not try it out on him?
He was laying on his bed covered with a light blanket. Often when kids went through some stress or some conflict at school or with friends, in general (only if your intuition guides you otherwise), the so called Ethereal Bridge treatment and the so called Intuitive Perception Empowerment treatment will be experienced by your children as profoundly relaxing and harmonizing. I will add below for you the guideline for the Ethereal Bridge treatment so that you can give it a go.
In most cases from my experience children react to your treatment quite quickly. Often already the next day you can observe a difference in their wellbeing or their behavior. Sometimes it can be the case that it seems to get a bit worse before it gets better. Then wait until the reactions have subsided and give them then another treatment. Getting worse are Healing Reactions and a sign of restructuring and re-balancing in their energy field. For severe ongoing issues like Autism or Aspergers, OCD, ADHD or any other diagnosed dis-ease, what you will find is that the treatment needs to be repeated every day to have the best effect. (Here also always search help from a medical professional as they have valuable expertise in medical or cognitive areas, or naturopaths or nutritionists who can give support with helpful diet) So we as parents need to develop Patience and Trust in the Healing Process. Let’s but return to how I applied my first Healing session to my son. So I was sitting beside his bed and conducted the Ethereal Bridge treatment first and then decided also to give him the Intuitive Perception Empowerment treatment. I prayed for Help and Healing energy for my son in front of him in silence (I mentioned with a quiet voice to him that I pray to God for the Healing Light and as he was 14 years old I felt this was appropriate). Then I held my left hand up in a receiving manner palm towards the ceiling and the right hand on the Sacrum and visualized how the Healing Energy was flowing deep into his energy field. Quickly his chatter got quiet, and soon he fell deeply asleep with a very relaxed and content expression on his face.
When you treat your child, you can make yourself as comfortable as you like (and you should as otherwise you feel uncomfortable, and this will affect your treatment) and conduct these treatments with inner openness and trust. For the Intuitive Perception Empowerment Treatment I started first to unblock the solar plexus area and energized then the area with Healing Light as outlined in part about treating others in the training Healing Magnetism in the Frame of a Meaningful lifestyle. I did the same with his forehead area and then conducted the treatment between Solar Plexus and Brain/s. How mentioned before by that time he was already deep asleep. And he slept through into the morning, something he has not done for weeks. The next day he told me in the car when I picked him up from school, that he is feeling more refreshed than for many months and he was telling me that without me urging him. His sleeping was by the way then never any significant issue anymore besides a few minor obstructions but nothing compared to the continuous sleeping problems he had beforehand. Would it had been, I would have just repeated the simple BioMagnetic Healing method of the Ethereal Bridge Treatment and Intuitive Perception Empowerment treatment as outlined in the course book Healing Magnetism in the Frame of a Meaningful Lifestyle (Now for any issue your child experiences, make sure you also check all areas as cause, like nutrition, organic health or environmental/psychological factors)
Other areas I used Healing Magnetism over the years with my son were with ear infections, sore throat or feeling stressed and overburdened or anxious about things. Recently I also used it quickly after he was stung by a bee. Usually, in the past, he had severe allergic reactions in the area he was stung and we most of the time had to go to a doctor to get some medication, and the area was always extraordinarily swollen and big and painful. Not this time, when I straight away treated the area with BioMagnetic Healing according to the guideline of the Pain and Organ field treatment.
The application of Healing Magnetism in self-help or for your children are literally endless and always supporting. Do not forget that each child benefits from Healing Magnetism after Immunisation. The energy field after Immunisation is quite affected in children, so conduct Healing Magnetism on your child. Here is right the Ethereal Bridge treatment and the Polarity treatment. I have performed over the last years a lot of treatments for kids after Immunisation, and always they recovered very well from the usual immunization symptoms, and much quicker and easier than without the Healing Magnetism treatment.
Whatever minor or significant physical issues we experience, Magnetic Healing will always act supporting, harmonizing for the Aura, BioMagnetic field and therefore it will have a healing effect directly on the body too. It has no side effects but only Healing effects. When we order our magnetic field or that of our children and energize where it is needed the self-healing powers will always be activated and supported. It also affects our own emotional state and wellbeing. Stress is reduced significantly in us too when we give healings to our children. We feel connected to them and feeling their harmonisation, is also healing ourselves. Often parents from “normal” or “Special Needs Kids” can be overwhelmed, stressed and tired. Applying Healing Magnetism to your child, you need to be open, relaxed, with a sense of letting go and you need to be as good a channel you can be. Helping your child, you also help yourself.
My son is now 19 years old. He still always comes to me whenever he has any physical issue or feels unwell. He comes and says; mum can you test me and conduct some treatment on me? He also knows that whenever I am in doubt, I will send him to the doctor, but I found many times that Healing Magnetism was all he needed. He also knows that Healing Magnetism helps with emotional issues (anxious, nervous, heartbreak, etc.) and he happily receives his BioMagnetic Healing Treatment. He expressed his desire to learn Healing Magnetism himself to be able to treat others in the future. Also, some of his friends come to me, and with an open and trusting attitude, these teenagers receive their treatment whenever they are out of sorts. Many young people or children are so overwhelmed by all the demands on them from school or what they are exposed to on the internet, that Healing Magnetism acts like a counterbalance, something which helps them to re-connect to their inside, to their soul and spirit again. It can help them to let go of stress and also show them that help is possible on such a level. In Healing Magnetism sessions they feel deeply accepted and supported which often has a long lasting effect on their self-esteem. It teaches them to calm down themselves, to understand that they are more than a body and helps them have a much better and more positive attitude toward life. It also helps in the relationship between parent and child, builds trust and friendship.
When you observe how many youngsters are depressed, take drugs or already alcohol, we as parents can indeed help them to understand that things can be different and much better and that they are not alone and there is a way out of their stressful feelings or potential anxieties. At the same time, they can begin to understand themselves better. Also when they see/feel our trust in God and the Help we are surrounded with, this will give them an example which will affect them on a profound level. My son is now a young man, helping around the house and supporting the family union. I still thank God every day for his presence in my life. He is a great joy to have around, and I am truly grateful. When he was little, and we had a time when we had to move a lot due to our work situation, I definitely felt at times stressed and tired and I would have been happy would I had already during his very young years had known about this method as I am sure it would have also made his life more comfortable when transitioning back from Germany into the Australian school system.
Kids and teenagers are generally too overloaded intellectually. Be it due to school or study or due to the overexposure of similar intellectually stimulating impressions on the internet and their energy field is also profoundly disturbed by being also exposed continuously to electrical devices for many hours. Such exposure is affecting the BioMagnetic fields. It disrupts the proper radiation connection between the solar plexus and back and frontal brain. We set our kids literally already up to be blocked in that regard, but we can counterbalance it via our knowledge and also Healing Magnetism application and generally a healthier and more natural lifestyle we offer to them. Especially parents of Special Needs Children also need to make sure that the exposure to electrical devices for their children is limited.
Another thing I observe is the frightening rise in children and teenagers who are being diagnosed as Special Needs Child, and in many cases, the BioMagnetic field will never be addressed. These children often receive medication with severe side effects that hinder the proper development of their organs and glands, suppress the real issues, and that is how we prepare the children for their earth life. Sometimes I honestly have the impression that the doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists do not really know themselves how to help them. Naturally are medications sometimes very important or lifesaving but they do not heal the cause of the dis-ease most of the time. Major areas that could help children like the change in blood radiation and support in the BioMagnetic field, as well as a lifestyle change in the whole family environment, is often overseen. So much needs to be changed and done in that area and should your child had been diagnosed as Special Needs Child also you can learn how to affect the proper flow of energy in their energy body and help them on that level, naturally always in cooperation with your medical advisor. But make sure that your medical advisor keeps all important area in focus.
As each situation is different it is important to keep in mind that Healing Magnetism does not replace a visit to a doctor or naturopath, so use it with reason and whenever you are in doubt or worried, always let your child be checked by a professional healthcare provider!
Nevertheless, you can indeed support as a parent or carer your child with Healing Magnetism with Hands to specifically help children and teenagers suffering from a spectrum of difficulties that hinder happy, healthy development and there are plenty of parents who already use Healing Magnetism to support their child.
BioMagnetic Healing has been shown to help with the following issues:
Trauma & Stress
Eating disorders - Anorexia Nervosa
Overburdening syndromes -chronic fatigue
Harmonisation after Immunisation
Support for common illnesses but also additional support in times of severe illness
Reduction of feelings of anxiety
Help with significant disease and time of high stress
Here are some feedbacks from my clients that should encourage you to give it a go yourself: "After three Biomagnetic Healing sessions my 15-year-old daughter got over her anorexia for good. The psychiatrist and doctor could not help her, but therapeutic magnetism did." (Robert Dowdell, Mornington, VIC). This review is from a father. He had received a call from his daughter's school to let him know that she would not be able to attend camp due to her anorexia. He brought her along to a BioMagnetic Healing session with me. During treatment, it was revealed that the daughter had experienced shock during her parents’ divorce and had developed severe anorexia. Three Ethereal Bridge Treatments brought back her appetite and health. The example you just read in the case of the anorexia child was for me a "key moment." When I as a simple person was able to help a girl who looked like 'death warmed up' when she entered my office the first time, with the simple method of BioMagnetic Healing, could not other people, mothers, fathers and carers of children and teenager who suffer under eating disorders or other diseases at least give it a try to learn this simple method to see the effects on their children? More kids die from eating disorders every single year then people die in accidents on the street. Nevertheless some of the significant contributor that keeps an eating disorder stagnant lies directly in the state of the biomagnetic field, something that is overseen entirely by traditional methods used nowadays. The focus on eating disorders is targeted onto the cognitive levels, behavior change and diets. Nothing wrong with that, but the primary aspect of the disease is overlooked in many cases.
All living organisms, including the cells that make up the human body, produce a magnetic field. "Magnetic energy is the elementary energy that the entire life of the organism depends on." (Werner Heisenberg, Physicist, Nobel Prize winner 1932)
Difficulties with anything for our children or teenagers and ourselves can often be caused or worsened by a blockage in the free flow of energy. BioMagnetic Healing works by restoring the natural order of the magnetic fields of the body: by discharging, cleansing, ordering and charging the body's energy flow through healing magnetism.
A blockage in the free flow of energy is caused by a disturbance in the way the layers of our inner self-interact with each other. Think here on the different cloaks surrounding our spiritual core. The traumatic emotional shock causes the subtler layers of our inner being to withdraw as the magnetic connection between these layers, and the physical body stops functioning correctly.
This can, in extreme cases, lead to a complete physical dissociation where the child sometimes perceives him or herself as separate to their own body - often characteristic in children with autism and also those with eating disorders. Often these children also show severe anxieties that can reach traumatic severity in some or violent outbursts, something we will also look at in more detail soon. Here we have extreme signs of Energy Body Stress and also something else which we covered in the section about Depression. We find that the energy field is open to otherworldly influences.
But BioMagnetic Healing is also beneficial to children who have not been through trauma. The day-to-day stress of living, growing and coping with change can be supported with this therapy to give your child or teenager the best opportunity for healthy, happy development.
Every person knows, even the doctors themselves that western medicine can't always provide the answers. The public health system is bursting at the seams, and the cost of alternative therapies can put a stress on the family budget. BioMagnetic Healing is inexpensive and easy to conduct, enabling you to support your family with many health concerns. Here it is first up to give it a try and to practice.
"Every human exhibits the capability, only slightly differently due to his or her individuality..." J.W.V Goethe
The following review is from a father who after 17 years searching for help for his autistic children learned to apply the BioMagnetic Healing therapy himself, and in part about Autism and Special Needs child, you will read some more about him. "Of note is the marked progress in our children after we treat them every day. Their dysfunction is gradually alleviated, and they are in the process of becoming able to look at the world from a new point of view and on the way to taking life into their own hands actively someday." Steven Susanto, father of two autistic children.
This was another significant Key moment for myself. I was contacted by that father in May 2014. Incidentally, I received his plea on Mothers day on the evening. He was desperately searching for some help for his two autistic boys. Reading his emails, I felt urged to help him as good as I could, especially as I painfully absorbed his explanations seeing how his two kids were hindered in their healthy development, whereas my son was developing freely and without inhibition. I felt compassion and also amazement for him, shocked what he went through, admiring his courage and his tireless striving to help his kids. I taught Steven Susanto, an average father like everyone else, to apply healing magnetism for his children and he experienced extensive improvements in his children’s health and wellbeing. He taught his wife to use BMH, and she is treating one child and he the other, every single day.
BioMagnetic Healing - Vital Magnetism You as a parent can use vital magnetism to help cleanse, order and harmonize the energy field of your child/children. The application of Healing Magnetism does not influence the tissues directly but harmonizes the energy field of your child. Blockages that disrupt the natural flow of energy - for example in the acupuncture meridians and also in the aura or the inner body can be eliminated. The renewed circulation of energy manifests immediately in the harmonious radiation of the person or child.
GIVE IT A GO
In the following I give you a simple guideline for the basic Ethereal Bridge treatment. Naturally there would be much more to it for you to understand, but I know that there are many clever and open people out there who will be able to give this a go.
Most important for all treatments you conduct on a person is your sensitivity for what you feel under your hands. And fore up naturally you ask for the Healing Light. There is no healing without healing light. This is the most crucial aspect of any healing session.
The receiving one is lying on his/her front.
The right hand is on sacrum on the lower back of your client (client here refers to the receiving one, be it your child, partner, friend, parent, etc.)
You ask for healing energy and absorb it via the open left hand, and it flows into your right hand into the area where you are focusing on. After a particular time, when you have reached the feeling of “fullness” (5 min at the most), then you move your hand one hand length further up.
The left hand is angled from the body and opened toward the ceiling in a receiving manner. Visualise the healing light/white light coming into the left open hand. Stay in one place until you have a feeling of saturation and then move your right hand one hand length up to the spine.
Continue your treatment until the neck or further up back brain, crown, forehead, and nose energy field. And then conduct discharging /brushing movements along the spine.
You get up, left hand pointing down at an angle to discharge. Your right hand executes brushing movements about 4-10 cm above the body, leading from the head over the spine to the tailbone and feet and beyond. Then direct your hands back to the head of the person. Leading back have your hand as far away from the body of the other person as possible.
About 50 discharging brushes direction always from the upper head towards feet direction.
It is advisable to close your fingers while returning to the head of your client and move back as far away from the body as you can to only touch the aura in the right direction which is from the head towards feet.
Are abortions justified? The miracle of embryonic development.
Embryology teaches that during its growth, an embryo goes briefly through all the stages of development of life on earth. First, it resembles a mollusc, then a fish, next it shows the stage of amphibians, the lineage of mammals, until finally it develops the human form. Only then does the spirit have the opportunity to incarnate. So far, the embryo has worked its way through a wide, impressive path of development: During the first fourteen days there is no real body, but merely a cluster of cells with a diameter of roughly one millimetre. At the end of the first month the embryo has the form of a five-millimetre-long bean, neither arms nor legs are evident, only tiny “buds” where the limbs will develop. The organs are present only by way of a hint. They only develop properly during the second month of pregnancy, when the basic features of the face slowly emerge: two small protrusions for the eyes and two pits for the ears … At this stage the foetus measures only three to four centimetres and weighs two to three grams.
During the third and fourth months the foetus takes on more and more human features. The eyes, which were widely spaced on both sides of the head, come closer and are covered with lids. The lips are beginning to take shape, the ears form, the limbs, especially the arms, grow longer. Soon the hands are fully formed and sexual organs are distinct. Moreover, the skeleton is formed and the development of the internal organs accelerates: the heart beats, the blood is close to its final composition, the senses are ready to perceive, and the brain starts to function.
At the end of the fourth month, the organs are almost identical in their structure and function to those of a newborn. Another one or two weeks of maturation – then nothing further stands in the way of the incarnation of the spirit into this body, since the similarity between the spirit and the physical body, which has matured and adopted the human form, is now close enough. The moment of incarnation About halfway through, that is, in the middle of pregnancy, the incarnation takes place. The mother becomes conscious of this great moment through the first typical movements of the embryo. The spirit has taken possession of the little body and begins to move the arms and legs. These first foetal movements are distinct from the weak, spasmodic jerks that were felt by the mother in the first half of the pregnancy.
Many expectant mothers also clearly experience the nearness of the child, and its personality after the incarnation. According to the nature of the embodied spirit, either joyful or even gloomy perceptions may thereby be awakened.
Thus the spirit does not already incarnate at the moment of fertilisation, and neither at the time of birth, but in the middle of the pregnancy. However, it cannot just simply enter without further ado into the physical body, as soon as this is receptive through its development. The astral body is needed as a connecting link between the embryonic body and the soul (that is the spirit in its ethereal covering). This is not, as is often assumed, an image of the physical body or its aura, but rather the astral body is the model, according to which the physical organism is built. It directs the formation and development of the small growing body. The embryonic cells orientate themselves by its three-dimensional mould. They lose their initially undifferentiated type and in certain places take on the special characteristics that are necessary for the body, thus transforming into liver, heart, and muscle cells and so on. Also the cell proliferation is controlled by the astral body.
Why body cells, which originally all bear the same “genetic package”, should react so differently, thus how a body shape can arise can only be explained by this “astral model”.
So the physical genes alone do not control the structure of the body, as science still mostly assumes today. However, they contain all the information on the hereditary physical characteristics, which is necessary for the formation of the new body. This information, which always leaves many possibilities open, takes on concrete form under the influence of the astral body. Through this, the genetic potential is adapted to the individual characteristics of the embodying spirit. In the end, every spirit thereby receives the body that best serves its further development.
After the physical body is fully formed, the astral body is not pushed aside as a “useless model” however, but it remains an indispensable connection between spirit and body. The mystery of the blood radiation Apart from the astral body, the blood radiation plays a decisive role for every incarnation.
Like everything else, the blood also “radiates”; in other words, it emits (invisible) radiations, which resemble the radiation of the astral body and can therefore combine with it. Both radiations together form an invisible “magnetic bridge”, without which the spirit could not firmly anchor itself in the physical body. This bridge of radiations is the basis of our life on earth; when it breaks down, the spirit takes leave of the body, and “death” occurs.
The radiation of the blood, which is different with every individual, develops only in the course of pregnancy, as the blood must first be formed. Characteristic of human blood are, among other things, the red blood cells, whose peculiarity consist in having no nucleus. During the first three weeks of development, the embryonic blood has no red blood cells. They are produced only at a later stage and to start with, contrary to the norm, with a nucleus. It is only later that red blood cells without a nucleus are formed and initially only in small numbers.
The typical human blood thus forms only gradually, until it has – about the middle of pregnancy – reached the appropriate composition. The changing blood radiation exerts thereby in the course of pregnancy an increasingly strong power of attraction on the spirit ready for incarnation and finally forms the bridge for the actual embodiment. The particular aura of femininity In parallel with this process of attraction the particular feminine radiation of the mother is also indispensable to the spirit attaining to an incarnation. Without women no child could be born and also no incarnation could take place, and it is not simply because the mother alone possesses the necessary organs for pregnancy! Man and woman differ by nature, and not just physically. In fact, the gender reflects fundamentally the nature of activity: the male works in a coarser manner, more active, orientated outwardly; the feminine in a more delicate and perceptive manner, more passive, oriented inwardly. Accordingly, the radiations of a female spirit are finer and her nature is aimed more at “reception”.
Such a feminine aura is an absolute requirement for the process of attraction with every incarnation. Therefore, it would never be possible to carry a pregnancy through to term outside a woman’s body. The missing or weakened bridge of radiation (a problem that is ever increasing as a result of the present-day social trends towards masculinisation) can also be a cause of sterility. Are abortions justified? If the spirit of the unborn child only incarnates in the middle of pregnancy, thus at a time in which the foetus is about four and a half months old – does this then justify abortions during the first half of pregnancy, as is legally permitted in many countries?
At first glance one could draw this conclusion, but as soon as we look a little more deeply into the question, the matter turns out to be quite different: Upon conception, the parents are at once approached by various souls who are seeking an opportunity to incarnate. That soul whose characteristics are closest to the parents’ connects with both the mother and also with the astral body by fine threads. The further the development of the embryo progresses, the firmer these threads become and the closer the relationship develops between the mother and the child. The woman experiences the blossoming of motherly love, which will be very important for the future life with her child, while the soul approaching incarnation gradually prepares itself for the entry into the earthly environment – for this it is a matter of leaving its previous whereabouts in the ethereal or fine-material realm, thus in the “hereafter”. Hence, the spiritual changes which take place simultaneously with the formation of the foetus are very far-reaching and are bound up with great hopes of vital importance. An abortion, therefore, does not only mean the destruction of a living organism and the astral body linked with it, but it also intervenes incisively in spiritual developments. The spirit striving for incarnation is compelled to release itself again from the earthly coverings, it is ruthlessly pushed back into the world beyond, all hopes dashed. There is much talk of the physical disadvantages and damage women are exposed to after an abortion, of the high risks of a later miscarriage, premature birth or ectopic pregnancy.
Besides these, many women also complain – not without good reason – of experiencing serious emotional and psychic disturbances after an abortion: remorse, emotional pain, feeling unable to redress the guilt. Remorse, pain, guilt “Shortly after the intervention”, as one unhappy woman put it, “and during the first phase of relief, I thought that all my problems were solved. What an illusion! Gradually and painfully, I recognised the consequences of my deed: I let my own child be killed! I literally broke down under the weight of this deed … and I have lived with the regret of this deed for two and a half years. I knew that I had committed a great injustice to my child and myself. I permitted that my child’s life be interrupted and I allowed it to be snatched away in spite of the fact that I already loved it. I became the mother of a dead child, it was unbearable.” (Quote from: “Swiss Aid for Mother and Child”, Basel)
Such perceptions occur with many women after an abortion – and they are not the fruit of imagination. They are a consequence of the invisible processes which accompany our coming into being in pregnancy

Suppression of the Soul We nowadays enjoy a never before available technical progress. The life and work, so it seems, was never ever as easy as it is now. The human being is more and more relieved of heavy physical work and unpleasant jobs. That should be actually an ideal frame to become more happier! But the opposite is the case. More and more people suffer, especially in industrial countries, under depression and emotional crisis. So from illnesses, which are opposed to the longed for life joy and present a state of the soul which can be described as the opposite of happiness. Especially in our modern world, which is driven by lust fulfilment, satisfaction and fun, do we find the most depressions. Just in that part of the world in which most people are well off, can we find the most anxieties and worries. It almost looks like as if a person has to struggle all the time to provide for the basics of life’s necessities; such a person is immune against the illnesses of the industrial countries. In poorer countries we hear seldom of depressions. The picture should not be drawn here in black and white. It is not about to demonize technical progress or to misuse the serious illness of depression as a reason. That would be wrong and not wanted. More do I want to point out that material comfort does not necessarily make people happier. 20 % of Australians suffer from depression. More than 2500 Australians commit suicide each year. Depression is a serious illness and the treatment is even made harder as society sees people with depression as weak or the illness is not taken seriously by others. The sufferers hide their dis-ease as they fear to be stamped as a weakling or a loser. Here there is a change of thinking necessary in society which through understanding can open up an atmosphere of wakefulness, empathy and helpfulness. The help of medical practitioners and therapists is indispensable. Whoever is reading this blog and suffers under depression, please search help under www.beyondblue.org.au or Lifeline (24 hours) on 13 11 14 (As a professional counsellor, life coach and energy therapist I will in my Blogs introduce and describe approaches which healthy people can use for themselves but also people with depression or other emotional illnesses might find helpful as an additional approach. Should you suffer under depression or any other psychological illness, please consult your medical or psychological advisor before trying anything that I suggest in this blog.)
The short joy of owning a Ferrari Perhaps you know someone or you yourself are a person who believes that you came here into this world without even choosing to do so and now that you are here you believe that the world holds your happiness in form of the material experiences or products you can acquire and enjoy. Perhaps your focus is on financial security and material wealth. Although it is true that material wealth can lead to greater contentment research shows that material goods are only capable of offering us a sense of short term bliss.
Research shows that income is three to six times higher in the USA, Japan, Switzerland and Germany since the Second World War, but the sense of happiness of the people living in these countries stayed the same since this time. People in Latin America are much poorer but significantly happier. An increased income only leads to partial happiness. We most often do not remember the times when we had it worse but only the times when we had it good. We are quickly used to an improved situation and soon find it normal to have a higher material life standard. The Swiss economist Bruno Frey from the University of Zurich got known through his contribution to the “economy of happiness”. He said in an interview: “We know that materialists, who are focused on money, are less happy then idealists, who do not focus so much on their income. When the wealth grows a materialist is still not content, it is never enough!” Further he explains. “ Who purchased a Ferrari feels like in paradise—but unfortunately only at the first moment. After two weeks we find the Ferrari pretty normal. The feeling of happiness wears off. With a new friend or girlfriend this is different. The friendship can be experienced again and again as invigorating and enriching. (….) The stupid thing is only that we foresee it wrongly and overvalue the material… and let’s face it, how it is if we have a new car is much easier to imagine then how it will be if we meet a new person.” The hope to get much happier when we win the lottery for example is really questionable. This hope also bears the danger that we oversee present opportunities for happiness due to the hoped for future happiness. “Who only dreams about happiness should not wonder when he oversleeps it, “says the movie and theatre actor Ernst Deutsch. Naturally are people more content if the wealth increases, but this has boundaries. The material wealth should not be overvalued in regards to the effect it has on our personal happiness. Inner balance and a soulful vigour have another medium in which they flourish in, than material unconcern. Often does discontent lead to ambitions which promise more happiness. So do people undergo surgery in order to look younger and more beautiful and they believe and hope that they will through more beauty achieve more happiness. Here some people get misled through the ghost light “Everything is possible”. There are limitations which are for each person different. We can do a lot, and every single person has capabilities, possibilities and talents, but we often start at the wrong place and suffer shipwreck and find us again further away from happiness. Casting shows for pop stars or models on TV, which are often very awkward and embarrassing, show at the moment the last station to which these ghost lights lead to. With discipline to more joy in life We can actually do lots of physical things to increase our wellbeing and even initiate feelings of happiness. Brain research for example shows that movement in fresh air, enough sunlight or the right nourishment can release chemicals in the brain which we call happiness hormones. So can we say in short that through a healthy way of living we can contribute to our own happiness? For this we should not establish fixed rules in the sense of “Do this and leave that, then you will be happy!” How repulsive can it appear, if a person dogmatically postulates some nutritional supplement as an universal remedy or if one follows some sport like an addiction. Nevertheless can we find that for many conditions which offer us a piece of joy, we can ourselves do something physically to achieve it. Enough movement and time in fresh air, a weight that makes us feel well, or some little “happiness”- like a glass of red wine at the evening, a stroll through the rain, a sunrise early in the morning, work in the garden etc. – can contribute to our own wellbeing, without us having to maintain a dogmatic program. Every person should make sure that he reserves time for things, which give him balance and support for his sense of happiness. But like here it is for everything. : One is not for all.
Exercise: Reflect what gives you joy in life. Jot it down.
So simple as it sounds, is it not always in reality. The one person is prevented by an obstinate overweight to achieve his happiness, the other cannot get over his snugness to get over himself to go into the fresh air. Such hindrances are many. It shows that before many changes that could be achieved and which would lead to a happier and better life, we first have to overcome ourselves. So we have to do something which is uncomfortable and we have to pay the prize of short term discomfort during the time of overcoming ourselves. This is also something which we do not like and does not appeal to our perception of happiness: “What now I am asked to eat less? But I like to eat!” How many would like to let go of overeating or smoking, if it would not be so difficult to do so? But the necessary change does cost to overcome our own desires, we have to put in personal effort, a decision, and to be prepared to accept a short term discomfort in order to come one step forward in our life.
Could we say that prior to happiness we have to endure a time of renunciation, a time of overcoming and also have an insight about what we want to change and where we are having a problem at the moment? At least this would be a step towards the direction not to search reasons for our own unhappiness in the mistakes of other people anymore. Carl Zuckmayer said something similar: “Half of our life is luck, and the other half is discipline- and discipline is decisive as without discipline could we do nothing with our luck.”
The right priorities The demands of society, job, or family are triggers for many to feel unhappy. One cannot meet all the demands, one does not know how to manage all the tasks and one asks himself how one can feel happy at all under such circumstances. One would really like to do what one likes to do. All the time these demands from others, so many obligations! Where is the escape? Also here can we recognize that before a next step to more joy in life there has to be first an effort an overcoming of ourselves. To make order in life, to arrange and organize it, to act and not only to re-act….asks effort and this has for many people nothing in common with their idea of joy. They think that personal effort is just the opposite of joy. Nevertheless nothing can bypass the need for order in our life, and the setting of the right priorities. Otherwise one will always run behind something, instead of improving something for himself. This is not only so in the professional area but also in regards to every other area of life. These “own” order will over time also have to change again, in order to be able to adapt to changing circumstances.
It is for sure a first good investment in our own life order to think about it in a calm hour, to become clear about what is important for you, how much time you want to use for it and in which sequence one want to devote himself to the task. We also need time available to check our own priorities again and again and possibly change them or to have time to think about our purpose in life and to be able to address challenges of one’s life.
In the book, “The seven habits of highly effective people” by Stephen R. Covey, we can find some help for this. Covey arranges in his time management matrix different activities into Important- Urgent, Important-Not Urgent, Urgent-not important, not Urgent-Unimportant.
Important and urgent: Crisis situations Urgent problems Time bound deadlines Profession Treatment of illness Friend or family member needs help Important but not urgent To think about ones purpose in life spirituality To develop plans and ideas Formulate life goals Recuperation and prevention Foster relationships Further education Reflection about the past and to learn from one’s mistake Not important, but urgent Some appointments in associations Some phone calls Some urgent affairs Any activities Not important and not urgent Trivial things TV Some phone calls Pleasant activities Time waster Busyness Some post Some hobbies
If we look at the little overview one can recognize for himself quite well how often or how seldom one decides to put important things first. Perhaps are some things not enough fostered which would be important. Things which would be important for life’s happiness and well-being are not fostered as they seem not urgent enough to do them. We have to remember that we have in our personal life capacity only a certain amount of time and energy to our disposal. We do not have endless time or energy. If we focus first on the important and urgent things and get them done, then on the important and not urgent things and get them done, we usually still have some time left to do unimportant things. If we first do the unimportant things it can happen that we are not left with enough time and energy for the important things.
Exercise: Get back to the little overview and become clear about, what is important for you, how much time you want to use for it and in which sequence you want to devote yourself to the tasks. Jot down your thoughts.
Some things do not make fun but give joy. It is very important to give room to activities which are not urgent but important. In there lies a key to happiness. As who for example formulates purpose oriented life goals, has a great chance to also become happy. Who then celebrates the first successes of his self-discipline, will experience happy and fulfilling moments. But moments of happiness can’t be detained, but want to be pursued again and again. Movement is a part of life, and we have to walk towards such moments, we have to do something in order to be able to experience them. “Happiness is cheaply acquired with tiredness and muscle ache” said Tolstoi. We have to become aware to not interchange fun with joy. If you go on a roller-coaster on a fair this might be fun, but it is no joy. If you write a book or work on a project it gives joy, but it might not always be fun. This means that even creative people might not always feel like doing something that belongs to their work. But if they have a talent to sit through feelings of reluctance, they will be rewarded with deep feelings of joy that impatient people never will be able to experience. Persistence is always an attribute of happier natures. To have a purposeful goal, to apply yourself to it and to exert yourself, to practice renunciation….this path leads to moments of happiness and to joyful experiences, which never would come towards us if we would not contribute something to it. Who has happiness as his only goal, gets into the danger that many disruptive factors affect his wellbeing. Who but takes Purpose as his goal, acquires the advantage and the opportunity to get happy, just as an additional fact.
Meaningful striving transmits energies, meaningless striving deprives someone of energy!
Exercise: To find a meaningful life following questions could be helpful: Am I clear about what meaning my life has? What benefit do my fellow men have from what I do or not do? What contribution do I perform with my life and work towards the public good? What values carry and drive my striving?
Perhaps one will not succeed at once to answer such questions in regard to our direction and life goals in a satisfactory way. One might have to occupy oneself perhaps constantly and intensely with these themes. This means again effort and work! Work in regard to our self-discipline, the will for change and persistence. But in the first instance work, which serves our own happiness in life.
Rather be optimistic Self-discipline and the will to change coupled with persistence---that is what characterizes an optimist. Optimists face a situation with the attitude: “I do not like that, so I will change it!” Pessimists in the opposite say: “I cannot do anything about it anyway!” Latest research show that optimists differ mainly from pessimists in that they are active, and in that they work for what they want. They act in their environment and try to improve their life situations towards the better. But this working, being active and to put effort in and the orientation towards new, better things is not a privilege from the optimists alone. Everyone can- if perhaps also with some effort, learn, adopt and acquire a more optimistic attitude in order to look more confident into the future. A basic help is thereby to have a clear image about one’s goal, as who does not know where he wants to go, might be possibly be okay of how his life is and this can lead him to remain inactive. (Further help and explanations about effective goal setting, and how we can help ourselves to become more optimistic, you will find in the coming chapters) The right goals and their pursuit are decisive facts for an optimistic attitude and therefore also for the psychic wellbeing, whereas it is also important to know the “Why” one follows a goal and not alone “Which “goal one does pursue. Suzanne C. Segerstorm, professor of Psychology, did intensive studies in regards to the connection between optimism and wellbeing and describes it in her book “ Optimisten leben anders”(Optimists live differently) which goals in regards to personal happiness are especially valuable. “In general are we the happiest, when we pursue goals, which help us to grow as human beings, to have meaningful relationships and contribute something worthwhile to society; we are less happy, when we pursue goals, which help us to be more attractive, richer, or popular or famous.”
Abd- Ru- Shin, the author of the book “In The Light of Truth- Grail Message”, speaks even from a duty of man, to choose the right goals: “It is man’s duty on earth to set him the highest attainable goal, and to strive for this goal with all the powers at his disposal. But as a human being! This excludes from the beginning that, like an animal, he should merely trouble himself about food and drink, as unfortunately, many men do; or let him be goaded by the intellect into striving only for worldly greatness or fame without keeping in view as the main purpose the general welfare and advancement of mankind. “
The own order in our life, own goals and priorities will also have an effect on the relationships to other people. Hereby is clearly to see how joy and happiness of each person is dependent on his relationships to his fellow men. Are you taken seriously by others? Do people like to see you? Are you respected and perhaps even loved and needed? And from what does this depend on? – In the end again from how much we invest into these relationships and into the public good! Can I expect to have joyful experiences, when I don’t do anything prior to it? Am I prepared, to have understanding for the mistakes and weaknesses of my fellow men, to listen to him and help him? Am I for the people whose appraisal I value, there, when they need me? The relationship account should be balanced through give and take, otherwise there is the danger very near and that one cannot experience a joyful togetherness. Here again we see that before we can reap we first have to exert ourselves, overcome ourselves-- sow. If one shies away from the work, one cannot reap.
The idea of sowing and reaping is illustrated with the following poem:
Sow with a generous hand; Pause not for toil or pain; Weary not through the heat of summer, Weary not through the cold spring rain; But wait till the autumn comes For the sheaves of golden grain.
Scatter the seed, and fear not, A table will be spread; What matter if you are too weary To eat your hard-earned bread: Sow, while the earth is broken, For the hungry must be fed.
Sow;--while the seeds are lying In the warm earth's bosom deep, And your warm tears fall upon it-- They will stir in their quiet sleep; And the green blades rise the quicker, Perchance, for the tears you weep.
Then sow;--for the hours are fleeting, And the seed must fall to-day; And care not what hands shall reap it, Or if you shall have passed away Before the waving corn-fields Shall gladden the sunny day.
Sow; and look onward, upward, Where the starry light appears-- Where, in spite of the coward's doubting, Or your own heart's trembling fears, You shall reap in joy the harvest You have sown to-day in tears.
Adelaide Anne Procter's poem: Sowing And Reaping
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall……. Often do we find ourselves in competitiveness with others. One wants to be better, more beautiful, richer than others and the more he compares himself the more he discovers ever more people, who are assumed to be even better, even more beautiful and even more rich than oneself. The comparison with other people carries the seed of discontent and of unhappiness already in it. Thereby we will very seldom compare inner values —from which one could learn— but it is about superficialities, which most of the times awake even more greediness in us.
“Comparison is the end of all happiness and the beginning of discontent”, said the Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855). We have to be careful when faced with an illusionary world, how some Medias show to us. Besides all the beauties and riches which are put into scene, some feel like a poor, ugly blighter. But wrongly- as he just has different qualities, which perhaps flower in secrecy. The idea expressed by the present days media illusory world, that every person can reach everything, if he so wants, is simply wrong, there are insurmountable differences in regards to us humans- in how we look, in the talents, in the leanings and in their capabilities-, which can’t be pushed to the side or changed. It only can make us unhappy, if we do not adapt to these realities and always look at other people, whom we find more beautiful or more talented.
Every person has in his character something that belongs to the whole and is absolutely necessary for the whole. Every person has gifts which are needed in his environment. In order to be happy one has to first accept him the way one is. This also includes our life circumstances like health, job and place in society and so on. Based on this, one can build up on their own capabilities disregarding ‘mainstream’ ideas, fashion and what the spirit of the time suggests. Only on the base of the selfhood can one stand secure and achieve clarity and security. Otherwise will the personality stay in a romping place of foreign influences, standards and moods. “The peak of happiness is, when every person is ready to be who he is”, said Erasmus of Rotterdam (ca. 14651536)
Thinking is a matter of luck! As important it is to reflect about one’s own capabilities and possibilities, it is also important for our own wellbeing to be watchful and to set healthy boundaries in regards to other humans. What effect do I have on other people? What triggers my behaviour, speaking and thinking in other people? What annoys me about other people and why does it disturb me? Is this or that person holding a mirror in front of me perhaps? Does one or the other behaviour perhaps disturb me so much as I have the same mistake?
Besides watchfulness it is also important to distance one-self from the moods and opinions of others. Here we find the colleagues who rant daily about the boss, the salary or the work circumstances, or there are the club members who have to beef something about everyone and everything, or the neighbour who complaints about everything and no one can make it right for him. One can ask oneself calmly following questions: “Does it do me good if I swim in the moods of others? Do I have to do it to myself to open myself for such a destructive atmosphere? Is this my own opinion? Are these also my own judgments the other person expresses? Or should I set boundaries in this or that situation, in order to stay detached from uninvited thoughts and ideas?
Also from ourselves do we do not have to accept every nonsense. We do not have to follow every mood or fluctuation which arises in us. We do not need to enmesh ourselves forcefully into pondering- but we can some time and over time more and more times- decide internally to focus our thoughts on something different, on something uplifting or something worthwhile which we can develop with the help of our thoughts. Pondering-a lot about yourself - keeps many people in a burdensome heaviness of the mind. One ponders about the past, missed opportunities, about mistakes or other things and nourishes thoughts which literally can beset a person’s mind. Unhealthy pondering is the enemy of joy.
Naturally is it important to think about mistakes in order to learn from them. But one does not have to fall into unhealthy pondering. The right way is to fresh and freely and with confidence look forward and to have the serious intention that what has led to the mistake, to change for the better. And even if you fall again, get up again and have a joyful decision to move on and try again!
Even if you are not in such a good mood, or if something really suppresses you, one can decide: Today do I want to make something of the day, I will try to be cheerful and calm; and I will give something to others, be it a smile or some uplifting encouragement; or a friendly glance. With such intention will we focus our thinking away from us to someone else- and this already helps to overcome the unpleasant emotional state. And if it does not work so well, then you still can stick to it: Tomorrow is a different day, I will try it again, I do not give up, not today, not tomorrow and on no other day! Who falls occasionally on his path to personal happiness, should be like a child who learns to walk: Just get up again!
“Happiness is dependent on the nature of your thoughts!” knew already the roman emperor Marc Aurel (121-180). With the nature of our thinking we do create the prerequisite of our life happiness. Or shortly expressed: Thinking is a matter of happiness!
With friend and enemy to happiness Not that what happens to us is decisive, but in the first instance how we cope with it, how we re-act. So can someone again and again make us crazy and we react again and again in the same way- emotional, with rage and anger-, and every time our own joy disappears, we are left without it. But could we not also react differently? Could we not leave our own path which we have since so long made wide and deep, just for a moment? Sure- it does cost effort and energy, to change our thinking and to act differently. But we always have to invest into relationships. Not only in regards to the relationships with friends, but also with people we do not like so much.
We think about payback and revenge, if someone used us; we want the just punishment, if someone treated us unjustly we tend to feel hate, if someone hurt us- we cannot find peace in our thoughts, no joy and no happiness. These things burden our mind and make our heart heavy and leave no room for liberation. But where could we find this liberation?
“Father forgive us our trespasses as we forgive them that trespasses against us!” In forgetting, in forgiving lies indeed liberation, but in forgiving lies also the most difficult investment in the human togetherness we can have. Connected with this step lies the big decision to overcome ourselves. It starts with the intention: I will try, even if it is incredible difficult! Perhaps it is helpful to put ourselves into the position of the other person as if we ourselves would need the forgiveness for our own wrong doing in order to be freed from a heavy guilt. To pardon and forgive is a great challenge which asks a lot. Perhaps is the help in a prayer for power and aid needed in order to be able to follow such a path and to forgive another. Who always bears enmity so always bears something, carries a heavy load on his shoulders. The path to forgiveness is the path to liberation and to freedom from rage and pain and hate which push heavy on our mind, but now we can free this place again and give room to calmness and joy.
The association with our friends also demands great alertness and attentiveness. Often do we treat the people who like us, even love us, in a way as if they are supposed to forgive us everything. We are busy to take from the relationship account from this or that friend- and are not aware enough to deposit something from our side.
This imbalance is often the reason, why true friendships develop so seldom and are so difficult to build up and maintain. Prior to taking should always lie the giving: Trust, help, care. Also and especially then, if it is hard for us, if it does not fit into our own time plan or hinders us from our own amenities, but it is worth to invest into that. To have true friends is one of the greatest assets of happiness which we can have in our life. People who are there for us, when we need them, who also love us if they know our mistakes, who tell us what we should change, who support us, if we are going through a tough time in our lives or feel unwell. Who goes through heavy, burdening life situations and has only one true friend who he knows beside him, on whose advice and help, comfort and consolation he can count on, will be better prepared to cope with difficult circumstances and overcome them, then someone who has no one he can trust.
Exercise: Think on the relationships you have in your life. How can you foster them more?
The dimensions of happiness Happiness is not only a concept from our daily life, but also a central theme in philosophy and in religion. To this also belongs that we not only react to the circumstances in our life, but to change these circumstances through our own actions. In that it is not about to search happiness in material riches or earthly power but it is about the constant happiness through insight, recognition and wisdom, this means to grasp God’s Will and to follow it.
Plato described 400 AC three dimensions of happiness: 1. The relationship to the Divine, 2. The happiness of being human 3. The happiness through social interactions. Two of these dimensions focus away from the person towards something else; one towards the Creator, to GOD, the other towards the fellow men. Only one of Plato’s described happiness dimension focuses on the personal self. And also Aristoteles said: “The ideal human feels joy, when he can be of service to another person.”
If we ask ourselves or other people what happiness means, the answer will be mostly connected to certain circumstances. Wealth, health, popularity, influence and so on-and with the wish to have all this. Only when people think further will they state functioning relationships, friendships, a happy marriage, a good relationship to colleagues and other things. And only last comes the spiritual path, the finding of a life purpose or even a personal focus on GOD as a fact for happiness.
Let’s first have a deeper view on the facets of happiness which have to do with our personal self: Wealth, health, popularity…..And? Should this be all? How about the deeper sight into oneself, personal emotional wellbeing, trust in oneself, inner security, freedom of thought, inner balance, confidence, self-esteem? Are this not also building blocks in the fundament of our own peace of mind? And is in the missing of these things not also the key why so many people are depressed and unhappy?
If a person’s ambitions only focus on the visible material world, it is no wonder, that they experience a deep inner emptiness and darkness, which gives emotional pain. We are not prepared with such a one sided material focus to cope with fateful experiences, which all of a sudden shake our weak and fragile soul protection. Often little changes in our used to and cherished way of life are enough to throw us from our life path. We are not capable to build up the necessary opposite pressure in difficult life situations. This is the more difficult the thinner our social network is. If we have not invested enough into the relationships with other people, then we will miss the support and help in crisis situations, what makes it then so much more difficult to gain something of worth out of these situations. Science speaks from the possibility of the “posttraumatic growth”, so to become stronger through going through the crisis, which can be supported by the care and friendship of others. A problem shared is a problem halved.
Also do we often believe that happiness and joy is a matter of luck and comes to us arbitrarily. We are living in waiting or in a state of expectation and with that in a tragic misunderstanding. As we have to move towards happiness and joy, we have to shout into the forest, so that something joyful can shout back. If we wish happiness and joy we have to do something for it! Even modern science acknowledges our contribution to our own happiness.
Ongoing happiness can only be found through fulfilling a purpose in life. The philosopher Wilhelm Schmid says it like that: “Happiness is not the most important thing in life, but the question about the meaning of life is the most important thing in life!”
The present happiness research approaches the search for meaning only vaguely. Meaning can only be found in the soul and in the spiritual areas, in the interpersonal connections- or also in own life or goal choices. One thing is clear for many authors and that is that we can do something to achieve happiness and to grasp the meaning of our life.
Happiness is lawfully anchored. The fact that we can do something for our happiness means: We have to move, if we want to change something, or do something for our happiness, if we want to reach more life quality and more joy in life. Let’s take as an example a conscious focusing at the beginning of the day: Today I will do something good with the day; I will give others a smile, I will finish a certain work etc. With such conscious decisions and – most importantly- with the consequent implementation of the intention, do we set something new into motion. A new chain reaction, as every decision opens possibilities for new advances in the new direction. We will not succeed in every new plan at once, but if we constantly try, then will we be also able to succeed in difficult things. So can new decisions string together and support an up building development. With every decision- be it in profession, in the family or in any other life circumstance- do we start an action, an activity and a reaction, which arouse a retroaction. A simple example: If we treat other people who meet us friendly and courteous will also the mood be friendly towards us. If we sow friendliness we will reap friendliness. And the more consequent we are in that, the more intense will we be surrounded by friendliness. This applies to all areas of our life, as it is about a law of nature, the law of reciprocal action. How you shout into the forest this is how it shouts back. (and modern quantum physics supports this idea scientifically.) With every movement, every action there comes a re-action. Therefore without movement we will not achieve a reward. But with diligence we truly can reap happiness. This lawfulness applies always even if we do not know or realize it, if we let ourselves go, if we are unfriendly or lazy we will always get the reactions in accordance with the same. Same creates same. And with this we touched another law, and this is the attraction of the homogenous species. Who is friendly and open towards others is welcomed to be around and people like to talk to him, he appears attractive. The crabber in the opposite appears repulsive.
Many will know this situation. The diligent, friendly and accessible colleague at the workplace will be gladly integrated into work groups, he supports and encourages the working atmosphere and works goal-oriented with like-minded. Especially the feedback from our fellow men, family members and work colleagues shows, how much -and with that our wellbeing- we have under control. Friendliness and helpfulness will also be shown to us, if we have lived them ourselves. But we should not expect of others that they share our path; there will be always people, which are not yet clear about the laws of happiness and who are for example unrestrained and selfish. Also are we asked to be lenient towards others, - also something which we can cultivate and develop. When we give friendliness and trust and reap it from others, this will be without doubt delight us and make us feel jovial. We will feel light in our heart, we feel elated, we feel joy of life and are happy. These illuminative and relieving emotional states are in opposite to gloominess, which makes our heart heavy and depresses our mood. Unburdened or oppressed- with these concepts we touch another law, namely the law of gravity, which also not only works in the physical world but can also be felt in the psychic-spiritual very clearly. The law of reciprocal action, the attraction of homogenous species and the law of gravity determine our internal well-being. You could say in reality that the joy of life is anchored in lawfulness. From us people emanate constantly movements: We constantly want something, we constantly think on something, say a lot, do a lot- or also fail to so something….and we are surprised if life bestows us with happiness or adversity. Decisive would be, to recognize the connection between all our deeds and the homogenous retroaction, to anticipate the lawfulness which governs life and is woven into everything. As in that lies the key to lasting happiness and joy in life. It is simply about us working on a fundamental tone in our life, which is fed by confidence and trust- out of the knowledge which we can gain from the understanding and observance of the laws of life and with using them we can work on happiness and joy step by step, whereas lack of knowledge leads further away from happiness. Not understanding (lack of knowledge) about the lawfulness in life leads to: Resignation, helplessness and ignorance. Understanding (knowledge) of the lawfulness in life leads to: Awareness, trust, security. Especially uplifting it is to recognize the meaning of life- in the little connections but also in the big things and the big whole. And it is frustrating, to not be able to understand the meaning. This happened to us already at school, when we for example tried to learn a language and did not get the meaning. Thus we have to learn the language that life uses in order to talk to us, or differently expressed, to recognize the laws of the Creation and with that to recognize the builder of Creation, God.
In the book “In the Light of Truth- Grail Message” from Abd-Ru-Shin we read: “You earthmen are in this Creation to find supreme happiness! In the Living Language which God speaks to you! And to understand this Language, to learn it, and to sense inwardly the Will of God in it, that is your goal during your journey through Creation. In Creation itself, to which you belong, lies the explanation of the purpose of your existence, and at the same time also the recognition of your goal! In no other way can you find either. This demands of you that you live Creation. But you are only able to live or experience it when you really know it. “ With the described lawfulness should we count every instant? We can’t avoid them, stop them or adjust them to our desires. For this reason we should recognize their mode of action and use them in order to reap joy of life, happiness and blessing. The fairy-tale idea of happiness, the belief that there is something that makes us all of a sudden and forever happy can lead to disappointment! A happy life does not develop through a dramatic incident, but it comes step by step, through our own activity, from one event to the next, through experiences and conscious decisions. Everyone is the master of his fate! We are happy, when we draw significance and joy from our experiences, when we spend time together with people we love, learn something new or if we for example work on a certain project, so if we do something meaningful. The more days are affected by such experiences as well as if we experience progress in the search for meaning and advancement in our psychic-spiritual perfection, the happier we are. First and foremost am I convinced that the path to happiness only is accessible through the knowledge of the laws in Creation. Therefore I want to end this post with a quotation from the book “In the Light of Truth”, which just supports this aspect and from which I have drawn the conditions for my personal happiness in life and whose accuracy I experience every day anew. “Happiness is much easier to achieve than many think! But it is first necessary for mankind to know the laws which rest in Creation. If they live accordingly then they must become happy.” Exercise: Jot down your thoughts about this blog. What was important for you? Will you integrate something into your life?

"I am the light of the world; he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." (John 8, 12)
The following is an article by Claude Thibeaudeau, formatted for this Blog post by Edeltraud Grace
The true mission of the Son of God
The coming of Jesus happened at a time when, in spite of the spiritual guides such as Lao-Tse, Zoroaster, Buddha, and the succession of prophets like Isaiah, Jeremiah or Ezekiel....humanity was going astray. We had forgotten the magnitude of what had been given to us with love and solicitude over the course of millennia.
Birth of Jesus There are many precepts that have distorted the knowledge of the Divine Laws handed down by Moses. The customs and habits in Palestine became degraded to the point of decadence. Help from the Divine was therefore necessary if men were to be able to pull themselves together. The rescue mission granted to humanity remains an act of Love that few human beings have recognised even to this day.
Jesus was born, thanks to the sincere prayer of intercession by human beings who sought help from God. The primary condition in order for the prayer of these human beings to be granted was for them to possess the knowledge of God. That is why Jesus was born among the Hebrew people who possessed this knowledge. Several people who became clairvoyant and clairaudient during this great event were able to see the "Star of Bethlehem" and hear the proclamations of the angels who bore witness to the extraordinary help being sent to mankind. The birth of Jesus took place in accordance with the Laws of Creation, in the purity of the love between two human beings. It was of necessity preceded by procreation, because arbitrariness cannot exist in the Laws of God. And if parthenogenesis( a form of asexual reproduction) was possible biologically with a woman, it could only result in the birth of girls!
The virginal conception of Jesus is mentioned by Luke and Matthew. the latter uses the prophecy of Isaiah (7,10-16)to support his argument, even though Isaiah foretold Imanuel and not Jesus. The announcement made to Mary by the Archangel Gabriel: "You shall call his name Jesus" (Luke 1, 26-38) is on the other hand very clear.
On this subject, Abd-ru-shin (1) gives a clear explanation in his lecture "The Immaculate Conception and the Birth of the Son of God" (Volume 2): "Every conception arising out of pure love and a heartfelt looking upwards to the Creator, in which the sensual instinct is only an adjunct and not the basis, is an immaculate conception in the physical sense. In reality this occurs so seldom that there was every justification for laying special stress upon it..." Further on, he also states: "Thus in this prophecy "the first child" is meant, and therefore a distinction has been made between virgin and mother..."
On this point, Mark recounts a scene that takes place in Nazareth where Jesus lived. The inhabitants called out thus: "Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary..."(6,3). The strict rule was to name the son with the name of his father, except when the father is unknown: this was a devious way of reminding him that Joseph was not his natural father! The treacherous allusions made by the Pharisees against his person have the same undercurrents in Matthew (11,19) and Luke (7,34): "Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners." This insult had a precise target, it was aimed at men born of an illegitimate or adulterous union.
His real mission When Jesus began His blessed work, His words made their hearts tremble, now that the memories of the sacred night had almost disappeared. His urging to spiritual awakening ran up against superficiality and incomprehension. This went as far as a hostile rejection that would impede the spread of His teaching until the end.
The interpretations of "redemption of the sins of the world" given by the Church is a distortion compared to the words of John the Baptist in the Gospel of John: "The next day John saw Jesus coming to him and said: "Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world" (John 1, 29-30). The reference here is to the sin and not to sins. John specifies that anyone who follows the teaching of Christ Jesus frees himself from the sin: "I am the light of the world; he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."(John 8. 12). Further on Jesus says to them: "You are of this world, I am not of this world. I said therefore to you, that you shall die in your sins; for if you believe not that I am he, you shall die in your sins." (John 8, 23-24)
This warning is not given in vain! The simplistic formulation of the Christian Church, which says that out of love Jesus died on the cross in order to redeem the sins of the world, is in total contradiction to the words of Jesus.
Jesus addresses his audience and asks them to become awake in spirit, and to change their ways and habits
His message is contained in the parables addressed to the multitudes. He teaches those who come to Him, encouraging them to awaken spiritually and to change their thinking and behaviour. We cannot therefore dismiss the whole teaching as claiming a Love such as would redeem all sins through the crucifixion. Such a Love would be unjust and mean weakness!
Jesus is, on the contrary, unwavering in His word, and therefore in the word of the Father. His determination is uncompromising; in the Gospel of Matthew His words are incisive and unyielding: "Whoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth; I came not to send peace, but a sword..." (10,32-35) and Matthew also recounts this fact: "Behold, your mother and your brethren stand without, desiring to speak with you." But he answered and said to him that told him "Who is my mother? And who are my brethren?" And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said: "Behold my mother and my brethren? For whoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother."(12, 47-50)
These words help to inspire each one individually to an unshakeable conviction in the spiritual value of our daily, family or work life, because His speech liberates the spirit.
Miracles To limit and restrict the activity of Jesus to miracles is very simplistic. Nevertheless human beings were shaken out of their apathy by these miracles, which led them to the Word of the Master. It should be noted that the miracles could be achieved through a process of accelerated healing only if the spiritual conviction of the sick and afflicted person was genuine. First they had come to know intimately the force of His teaching, in view of the fact that after these healings Jesus said to them "Your faith has saved you; go in peace!" These words transformed them completely.
Why a divine envoy was necessary The coming of a divine envoy was the ultimate help because men were no longer capable of recognising the Truth. In his book, Ernest Schmitt (2) gives us the historical setting of the activities of Jesus: "The reasoning, limited intellect had so complicated the very simple commandments that the deluge of paltry regulations had buried the original, essential truths. After His baptism by John the Baptist, His mission as the Son of God becomes clear to Jesus. The power flowing through him shakes up the ancient tradition and liberates the spirits from the prohibitions and the minor rules added to the Mosaic Law. It shows His complete independence of the opinions and trends of the time by doing away with the prescribed food diet. However, by declaring it to be unimportant and now superseded, an aspect to which others attached a great deal of importance, He openly puts himself in opposition not only to the scribes, the Pharisees and Sadducees, but also the Essenes. He will be hounded and monitored throughout His ministry. The hostility maintained towards Him will be such that He will be unanimously condemned to death by the Great Santhedrin."
Moreover, He did not come to overthrow the Law! And He says it clearly: :"Think not that I come to destroy the law, or the prophets, I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say to you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5, 17-20)
What will later become the foundation of Christian morality is to be found in Leviticus (19-18) and Deuteronomy. (6-5).
Jesus, who knew the "Holy Scriptures" very well, will go over these commandments again following a question from a Pharisee rabbi: "Master, which is in the Law, the greatest commandment?" Jesus said to him: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." (Matthew 22, 34-40)
He also specifies other precepts of the Mosaic Law including those related to crime, adultery (a lustful gaze directed to a woman is already adultery), divorce, perjury... And He admonishes not to hate one's enemies but to love them "that you may be the children of your Father which is in heaven; for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love them which love you, what reward have you? Do not even the publicans do the same? "(Matthew 5, 45-46)
From the beginning of His work, starting with the Sermon on the Mount, He traces for the large crowd following Him the way that leads to the Father. "And seeing the multitudes, Jesus went up the mountain; and when He was set, His disciples came to Him, And e opened His mouth, and taught them, saying: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven!
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth!
Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted!
Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled!
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy!
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God!
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness'sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven."(Matthew 5, 1-10)
The Beatitudes eloquently express divine justice which rewards the just after their death. The Kingdom of Heaven is opened for them; this is the Beyond, which is called Paradise.
The Lord's Prayer
Jesus teaches His disciples about prayer and specifies the conduct necessary for a prayer to be genuine "And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are; for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say to you, they have their reward....
"But when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do, for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not therefore like to them; for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him." Then he says to them: "After this manner therefore pray: Our Father who art in Heaven..."(Matthew 6,5-15)
In his lecture "Prayer", Abd-ru-shin sums up what it means and the depths of its contents: "The Lord's Prayer alone provides everything for the seeker if he penetrates into it deeply and grasps it aright. He would need nothing more than the Lord's Prayer! It shows him the whole gospel in concentrated form. It is the key to the Luminous Heights for him who knows how to experience it rightly. It can be both a staff and a torch for the advance and ascent of everyone! What it contains is absolutely immeasurable.
"The real purpose of the Lord's Prayer is evident in the wealth of its contents. In the Lord's Prayer Jesus gave humanity the key to the Kingdom of God! It is the very essence of His Message."(Volume 2)
The discourse on the end-time
Jesus presents himself as the heavenly bread and the living water of eternal life: "I am the bread of life. He that comes to me shall never hunger, and he that believes in me shall never thirst."(John 6, 35). His word is his message, those who listen to it and follow it free themselves from their passions and their weaknesses! But the hostility was growing. Henchmen of the rabbis spied on every action and gesture of Jesus and their animosity grew ever stronger toward Him. He knows that His end is near. Deeply saddened by this constant suspicion, He warns: "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets, and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together.. For I say to you, you shall not see me henceforth, till you shall say: Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord!" (Matthew 23, 37-39)
He knows that His message has not been received in the right way. In His discourse on the end-time on the Mount of Olives, He describes the disasters which will manifest during the period of the Judgement:"You shall see the abomination of desolation" (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21) And the Book of Revelation is entirely devoted to these warnings.
The last Supper
Jesus devotes His last days to teaching His disciples and says to them: "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. And from henceforth you know him, and have seen him."(John 14,6-7). He will never deny in front of His judges and will cause Him to be sentenced to crucifixion.
Max Gallo (3) cites on this subject: "The attitude of this man who does not defend himself , of this vanquished one who does not bow is unbearable." Are you the Christ, the son of the Blessed?" asks Caiaphas...."I am, said Jesus, and you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven."
During His arrest, Jesus will order Peter: "Put your sword into the sheath. Shall I not drink the cup which the Father has given me."(John 18,11)
As for Frederic Lenoir (4), he gives this explanation: "The cup of Jesus that is, death on the cross, could not be interpreted as necessary for the Son to suffer in order to appease the Father, as one has been able to understand it within the framework of a theology of pain and sacrifice. Such a picture contradicts the whole teaching of Christ and his revelation of a God of love....Jesus died on the cross for having borne witness to the end to the truth which he brought. This is no doubt the reason why his word still rings out as true and seems to be alive, two thousand years after his death."
During the meal of the Passover which He took with His disciples, He seals His message with these words full of meaning: "And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said: Take this, and divide it among yourselves; for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come. And he took bread, and gave thanks, and broke it, and gave to them, saying: This is my body, which is given for you; do this in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying: This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you." (Luke 22, 17-20)
These words will nevertheless remain misunderstood by many, although forever engraved in the heart of every true Christian. The true meaning of the words said by Jesus on the eve of His grievous walk to Golgotha:"This is my body, this is my blood' is given by Abd-ru-shin: 'Jesus was the Word of God become flesh! Thus he who absorbed His Word aright also received Jesus himself.
"And if a man lets this Word of God that is offered to him come to life within himself so that it becomes an integral part of himself, of his thoughts and his actions, he thereby lets the spirit of Christ come to life within himself, for the Son of God was the incarnate living Word of God!" (Volume 2)
Jesus also prepared the disciples to pass on His word to all nations by promising to send them the power of the Holy Spirit. They will receive it on the day of Jesus' ascension, initially in His radiant ethereal body, (not physical), toward His divine home. It is the day of Pentecost, when the heavens open above them and they receive the flame, which will accompany them in their work of spreading the Word of Christ among all people
"I look at something..."- an easy, everyday procedure. One believes. On closer examination, human perception, human perception is revealed as the interplay of many processes, only a part of which we can observe and explain scientifically.
Human perception takes place in two steps. The first step includes all that can be measured objectively nerve excitation by a receptor organ such as the eye, transmission of information across intermediate steps to cerebral cortex. Here the visual information is processed mosaic-like in different zones, classified by form, colour and movement, and arranged in edges, numbers, words, objects and faces. In addition, the brain stores what is seen in categories, differentiating between animate and lifeless, animal or plant, bird or insect, duck or chicken if for example we saw a bird.
The second step comprises sensory impression and the actual perception. Both are subjective, and cannot be measured. What impression the perception releases must be ascertained by the person. Why that is so is discussed in the second part of this contribution. Let us first deal with what can be objectively measured.
Conscious and automatic senses
Human sensory perception encompasses the five known senses - sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell, which to us are processes that can be objectively measured and cause consciousness. Our perception, though, takes in other, less known senses, which we only become aware of when absent.
Let us look at the misfortune that befell the butchers's mate Ian Waterman, when he was 19 ears old and cut his finger! For him this small accident was at first nothing unusual, and he also did not look after it when the wound became inflamed. Finally he got a headache, had to lie down and soon felt as if he was floating in the bed. He did not feel his body, could not get up and in the long run would have been wheelchair-bound the rest of his life if he had not learned with great tenacity to plan his movements with the eyes. He needed one month before he could again straighten up in bed, three months before he could walk. Each morning he is totally depressed, because each day is more arduous than a marathon race.
What happened? Ian Waterman had lost his sense of propioception by a nerve inflammation, the feeling of exertion of muscles and tendons, which we need to walk and to move. An important sense, whose meaning we are usually not at all conscious of in everyday life. Other automatic senses are the sense of balance, the sense of strength, which becomes conscious when we lift weights, the sense of pain and heat.
Now let us go into specific features of our five senses and ask ourselves with which sense the thought faculty could have been originally linked.
Did it begin with smell?
It is reported of Friedrich Schiller, the poet, that he kept old apples in his desk drawer, whose smell inspired him to write. In fact, we know today that just the sense of smell is connected especially closely with our world of thought and feeling.
The sense of smell developed early in evolution. Fish have very good sense of smell. An eel can smell a tiny droplet of phenylalcohol on a dilution 50 million cubic kilometres of water - that corresponds approximately to the volume of Lake Constance. At this dilution the eel would have only one or two molecules in its nasal cavity. Minnows - small, lively school of fish - flee or dive to the bottom if they smell pike. Their well-developed sense of smell warns them of the predator and makes them react. Young salmon sniff their native river if, coming from the sea, they again find the arm of the river where they were spawned.
In the cerebrum, the olfactory brain is the first predominant in evolution. Only with reptiles is a small bit of neocortex formed, that is, the part of the brain which corresponds to the cerebral cortex. In lower mammals the olfactory brain and neocortex are equally big, while man possesses only a small olfactory brain. Also the surface of the olfactory lining - that i, the nose area which reacts to smells- is much smaller in humans than for instance in the dog. The dog gets to know most of its surroundings via the nose and is known to communicate its presence unabashed to all animals which likewise obtain knowledge of their surroundings via the nose.
But important as the sense of smell is for perception, no one yet knows how smelling exactly functions. The nervous activity patterns in the nose are very complex, but also very specific, as can be seen in the illustration below. They already differ if one sent in comparison to another contains just one extra carbon group.
Smelling is strongly linked with our emotions. The animals determines prey, friend and enemy by smell. Man, too, chooses, unconsciously in part, by scent whom he likes around him. If we "cannot smell somebody", then the dislike is usually very deep
Because of the great importance of smell it is quite possible that emotional judgement - thinking: "Is this good for me or not? " - started with smelling. In the human brain the olfactory cortex lies very near the limbic system these brain areas process emotions. Smelling likewise has close connections with taste and over this pathway a further relationship with our wellbeing.
No smell, no taste Smelling uses two ways to discover odours: externally originating smells are detected in the course of inhaling, scents from foods with exhaling!
Brief components of meals, thus the aromas, radiate much wider in the brain relative to other senses than smells from the environment, for the simple reason that look and taste are added. As soon as a desire for certain foods predominates, an area in the cerebrum, called island (insula),is involved in recognition. It informs about the feeling in the stomach.
In the tongue are taste buds, mainly in front and at the rear edges (see above illustration). These contain the receptors for all five primary taste sensations: salty, sour, sweet, bitter and umani. Umami is the Japanese term for "delicious flavour". It is aligned to broth and is produced by protein components glutamate and asparate. No individual areas in the tongue are responsible for a certain taste, but all are always for the whole taste.
Each taste bud contains several cells. The receptors for various taste substances exist on different cells. There are sweet, sour, bitter cells that carry receptors only for this taste. In mice experiments receptors for bitter substances were put on sweet cells. The result was that the mice took to the substance were put on sweet cells. The result was that the mice took the bitter substance, because sweet cells, if they are active, produced always the perception of sweet, independent of which receptors they carry.
Receptors for sweet taste do not operate in cats. It is therefore probably futile to want to seek to lure kittens with sweet or tigers with honey, because they do not know what is sweet. But they are completely crazy about unami taste.
The five different taste variants result in a distinctive taste variants result in a distinctive composition together with brief aromas of meals.
Synesthesia two simultaneous sensory perceptions. Taste has a special relationship with language, more precisely, words. This manifests not only in the fact that tongue is used for articulation. The relation is made especially clear with synestheses, who taste the sense of words. Synesthesia is the ability to have another sensory perception jointly with reading or hearing, thus for example seeing coloured letters. Some synesthetes taste a word before they can utter it. The sense of taste is awakened by thinking about a word, not necessarily by its sound or spelling. The taste is produces by the name. For example, the word "mince" can evoke minced meat taste just as the rhyming word "prince".
Synesthetes differ in the way the simultaneous perception looks, for example letter and colour. There are those who see, as it is for the normal person, green letters on the screen, thus outside by itself; others however, see the colour to the letters before their mind's eye, thus within.
From sensory impression to perception
How does the transition of information processing in the brain to the sensory impression take place? What do we know about it?
In seeing this screen, the eye, as we know, is picturing the screen. But who is looking at the page? The brain or= you yourself?
In the brain visual information is broken down into many details and is stored like a mosaic. There are, as we mentioned, cerebral areas for oolour, movement, faces and objects, for animal names, tools and people. How does a picture arise again? No one knows. No higher region is also known where all the threads gather. No homunculus, ego, has been located in the brain. Why do we not see only details? This border of the objectively measurable with the subjectively experienced cannot be crossed, since to receive a sensory impression, from which perception follows, we must be conscious of the picture.
There is occasional talk of the inner eye or mind's eye and from the term sensory impression it can be inferred that something must be there which can be impressed. Is it the spirit that is affected by sensory impression?
What is spirit? What in us perceives?
By spirit, almost everyone understands something different today. Those who agree with Aristotle think of reason. Some see spirit as an adversary of the soul, as equivalent to intellect. It was seen in the past as a higher stage of being in the sense of conscious thinking. The philosopher Hegel made a distinction in subjective and objective designates capacity of abstraction, force of thinking, likewise perception and intuition. Objective mind covers more general human abilities such as art, science and language. Nowadays we are inclined rather to regard spirit as intellectual brilliance - in contrast to academic perspective of a mental soul in essential relation with the body.
While to one philosopher the brain mutates to the subjective mind, and the objective mind is an artificial product of culture, ideas and artistic creativity, another likens the spirit to computer technology, whereby spirit represents neither hardware nor software, but a kind of firmware hardwired in the brain by evolution. In contrast, to others, the spirit cannot be derived from the physical, that there is consequently a dualism of spirit and body, and that spirit represents the human person.
Which of the many contradictory views on the nature of spirit is right?
The concepts "absent-minded" and "present-minded" let us conclude that spirit must have something to do with consciousness. With absentmindedness the one concerned is not with it, his perception is occupied with something else. Present=minded is a behaviour in which the one concerned is not only with it, but is especially enthusiastic and acts fast. It is as if the spirit, the conscious and animated entity in us, is particularly active.
Abd-ru-shin writes in "In the Light of Truth" that spirit actually represents a non-physical condition, which exists in Creation in different gradations. One concerns the human spirit. The spirit, therefore, animates the physical body and also represents the personality of man.
From this view, it is the spirit impressed by the process across the sensory organs and the brain, which perceives the happening consciously, and from it draws conclusions and decides, acts - provided our intellect permits the natural interaction between spirit and the physical world. Because the intellect can ignore the impulses of the spirit, our innermost core of being. This happens if a person has got into the habit of letting only earthly things count. That is also the reason why some can look upon the intellects as adversity of he soul (the spirit).
Spirit expresses itself in the volition and in intuition, which can be perceived as feeling in the stomach, longing in the heart, as enthusiasm, and which seizes the whole body, or - in the unpleasant sense - as weight on the shoulders, pressure in the tummy or as choking in the throat.
Spiritual experience therefore has very much to do with the daily condition -whether one is in a cheerful and happy mood or is beside his body, feeling uncomfortable.
For transmission of sensory perception regarding intuition,the above-mentioned limbic system is responsible. With its assistance there is recognition in a flash whether the person opposite is trustworthy or not. The limbic system becomes active and sends information down to the belly. There an evaluation is carried out, the limbic system ceases in activity, while the intellect in form of the frontal brain becomes active.
As long as the brain is busy processing external perceptions that are of conscious interest to us, it cannot at the same time take up intentions and perceptions from inside, thus from the spirit. To process impulses from within, leisure and silence are a good condition.
The importance of the contact across the limbic system with the spirit is shown by findings in people who have a damaged limbic system. They are generally very cold and act in many situations utterly thoughtlessly. In poker they play, for example, without consideration of risk. Although they may have a rational grasp of the danger, the thread of losing their entire possession does not deter them from acting in this way. Sound people get anxious and terminate the game- owing to their connection with the spirit, which - in form of the voice of conscience - intimates the right thing to do.
The spirit is not immaterial in the sense of a void, as is sometimes assumed, but is of a condition which differs fundamentally from the material substance of the body. Nonetheless a reciprocal effect between spirit and body is possible. We know how strongly we can affect our body with our volition and what can be achieved with will-power.
Perception of sense and spirit
What is the usefulness of perception? Naturally we need physical sense organs to live. To perceive the outside world impulses emanate from inside, from the spirit. With spiritual perception we can evaluate situations and verify the truth of a statement.
The biblical parable of the wise and foolish virgins is meant in this sense. The wise virgins, who have oil in their lamps, keep their spiritual perception alive and are therefore in the position to recognise the bridegroom if he shows up suddenly or, transferred to the present, if they hear his word. They are thus able to perceive the truth spiritually. The foolish virgins do not nourish their spirit, have no oil in their lamps, because they trust solely their intellect and suppress their spiritual impulses. If they meet the word of the bridegroom, they cannot grasp its truth. They go, figuratively, past the bridegroom without recognition.
We should strengthen our intuitive capacity and grant more room to spiritual perception. This inner perception expresses itself among other things in spontaneous "unconscious" decisions.
Spirit, the living core in us (yellow), perceives. It is cloaked by bodies of the soul (red) and of the physical world (blue). The physical brain belongs to the physical plane, but the intellect can ignore impulses of the spirit .
The fact that an unconscious recognition really is possible shows in the example of a woman who, due to a brain injury, can no longer identify faces, not even her own. If she looks at pictures of known and unknown people she makes no recognition. However, simultaneous measurement of skin conductivity showed that she probably emotionally recognises her friends. It shows how strongly our conscious perception ability is affected by certain brain functions and that there is another level of perception and recognition.
Even when it comes to complex questions we can unconsciously without thinking purposefully about something and rationally balancing the pros and cons- make the right decisions "from the gut". In a study participants had to find the qualitatively best car based on favourable and unfavourable signs. Deciding "unconsciously", 59 percent of the participants chose the right car, while with a rational decision only 23 percent were right.
In daily life intuition is extremely useful. If we developed an idea how a multifaceted relationship is to be interpreted, our intuition is announced. To spiritual activity likewise belongs artistic work, which is fed from the perception of the fine-material environment and intuition, as well as stirrings of conscience.
Since we should bear responsibility for our decision and these should agree with the Laws of Creation, if they are to be crowned with success, the conscience is a great help for the human being. It cautions if a decision does not correspond with the Laws of Creation, or affirmative, enchanting, if we decide rightly. Therefore it is important to recognise and act according to the general laws of life.

The term gender identity is according to Merriam Webster :a person's internal sense of being male, female, some combination of male and female, or neither male nor female
Facebook provides more than 50 options beyond "male" and "female" for users to describe their gender identity, from "gender questioning" and "neither" to "androgynous."
Some people are not sure if they are male or female and to deal with that can be very confusing for them, and when they are children or teenagers it can be also very confusing for their parents. What is the best way forward? How can I support my child/teenager in such circumstances is something that parents ask themselves. The following is here offered for further considerations and also takes into account the spiritual dimension.
Gender Identity and Sex-Assignment Surgery. Article written by Professor E.O. Anosike and compiled by Edeltraud Grace
All human beings on earth are born either male or female. The two genders manifest distinct genetic and physical characteristics. Differences are even more evident in their personal characteristics. Men, being physically stronger and coarser, are seen as the providers, women, being gentler and more intuitive, are the nurturers. The era of feminism, aimed at breaking the stereotype and providing equal opportunities for women, which has largely been achieved in the meantime, is giving way to an era in which the question is posed whether the right body is always acquired at birth, since there area individuals who inwardly identify with the opposite gender.
The science of embryology shows that humans begin life looking much the same. The genes later steer the development of a human embryo into male or female. After about the eight week of gestation, female XX and male XY sex chromosomes set the development of ovaries and testes respectively. The testes secrete male hormone, testosterone, while the ovaries secrete the female hormone, oestrogen. The brain develops receptors which are said to be "wired" differently in men and women to enable the function of the hormones.
The hormones stimulate the development of secondary sexual characteristics such as breasts or body hair that distinguish male from female.
It is estimated that between 750,000 and three million Americans consider themselves transgender, meaning that the gender at birth is at variance with their self-perception. Many people are convinced that they were born with the wrong bodies. The sense of self clashes with the disposition of the body and the nature of activity of interest to the affected individual. The phenomenon is described as "gender identity disorder" by some professionals.
For some individuals, the "gender identity disorder" had reached a crisis point that they are willing to undergo surgical correction. In sex reassignment surgery a person's appearance and sexual identity area changed to the opposite sex. I was motivated to write this article after watching some "very bloody" procedures on television. The male-to-female operation involved surgical construction of a vagina while the female-to-male variety involved procedures that included mastectomy (removal of the female breasts) and the construction of a penis and testes.
The first reported procedure was male to female performed on Lili Elbe in Germany in 1930. he underwent five operations and died after the fifth that involved ovarian transplant. It is estimated that between 1,000 and 2,000 individuals undergo sex-reassignment surgery each year.
A lot of controversy surrounds the issue of sex reassignment due to a wide belief that it is ineffective, unnatural and possibly immoral. Many people identify trans-sexuals with the sex at birth, more so since the genetic makeup is unchanged by surgery. The biology, too, remains largely functionally unchanged.
In 1979, Paul McHugh, a renowned psychiatrist at Johns Hopkins Hospital, USA, argued that to perform physical gender reassignment was "to cooperate with mental illness rather than try to cure it". This view was widely criticised as extreme, since gender reassignment was generally believed to make transsexual individuals feel at peace with their bodies.
A feature in Newsweek magazine "Re-thinking Gender", highlighted five trans-women and two trans-men. One was a 56 year old Baptist Minister born male, John, who became Julie after surgery. Curiously, the picture of Julie was with his wife, Joanne, in support of former man now a fellow "woman".
What is it that makes us male or female? All that is designated as "living" expresses a duality: positive and negative unite in complementary interaction for completeness. So, it is that the human spirit is able to express its activities in either an active, magnetically positive or passive, magnetically negative nature.
Once a spirit germ has decided out of its emergent volition on a positive or negative nature of activity, it remains bound to it permanently. The work, "In the Light of Truth", the Grail Message, by Abd-ru-Shin has this to say on this matter: "Here it is the nature of the spirit-germ's activity which is decisive, that is, in becoming conscious, strives mainly to develop the abilities resting with it, whether in a positive, compelling and energetic manner, or in a negative, quietly preserving way, wherever its principal desires urge it.
And in this activity of the spirit-germ, even if it consists at the start of no more than strong desires which increases to an urge, the form shapes itself.
That which is positive shapes the male form and that which is negative the female form. Here male and female are already outwardly recognisable through their forms. Each in its forms is the expression of the nature of the activity which it chooses or desires.
Female and male therefore have nothing to do with the usual conception of sex, but merely indicate the nature of their activity in Creation. It is only in the World of Gross Matter, so familiar to man, that these forms evolve the procreative organs which we designate as male and female. Only the physical body, needs these organs for is procreation!
Thus the nature of the activity in Creation shapes the form of the actual body, male or female of which the gross material earthly body is again but a coarsely constructed copy! " Lecture:" Sex"
Sometimes with human beings a man inclines towards the feminine nature of activity while a woman inclines towards the masculine. This can lead to a distortion of the soul. A male spirit lacks the delicate intuitive capacity, which characterises genuine womanhood and through which she is able to transmit finer radiations to refine the coarser and more earthly activity of the man. Likewise a female spirit who inclines towards masculine activity can suppress or render inactive this delicate intuitive capacity, but she still cannot become a "real" man. Such a woman actually robs the man of the indispensable connection with finer radiations from the higher realms of Creation. The situation may then develop finally where a male soul goes on to incarnate in a female body or a female soul in a male body. Again the Grail Message says about such distortion "The spiritual, animistic and ethereal form of the body changes as soon as the spirit-germ changes its activity. If it changes from a negative to a predominantly positive activity, then the female form must change into a male one, and vice versa, for the predominant nature of the activity shapes the form!
The transformation of the gross material physical shell, however, cannot follow so quickly; as it is only intended to last for a very short time. Here the change manifests itself in reincarnations, of which in most cases there are many!
Hence it happens that a human spirit sometimes wanders through its lives on earth alternately in male and female bodies, depending on its changing inner attitude, brought about by a stubborn and violent distortion! "
In sex reassignment surgery the distortion is concretised. Some affected individuals may not be patient to revert the condition naturally in a reincarnation. Is it then beneficial to undergo sex-reassignment surgery? For example, the distortion may be at its initial stages, and aid may thereby be given that inadvertently only consolidates the distortion.
Experience is what is most beneficial for the development of a human spirit. Here, too, a proper of the inner distortion is advisable. For example, the woman who is actually a male spirit would gain in trying to live as a woman. The Grail Message advises: "Her experience, however, helps her to change; for she must soon notice that a genuine man never feels happy in her proximity. He finds within himself no understanding for her. Much less can harmony arise, because genuine manhood is repulsed by everything false, thus also by the masculine striving of a woman!"
The same, of course. applies to a female soul residing in a male body.
Sex Reassignment Surgery may thus deprive of the experiences to correct the distortion from within.
Here we occupy ourselves with another medicine of the future, which will help the person not only through the use of drugs and surgical intervention, but starts off in the finer domains. Similar to the Biomagnetic Healing Treatments with Hands, when we first detect blockages and disturbances and then harmonise the direct human energy field, we also find disturbances, blockages and ill effect in the surrounding geomagnetic fields and in becoming aware can change many things to encourage physical health.
Sleep disturbances are among the known symptoms that can be triggered by geographic zones. But the health impairments from water veins or so-called "terrestrial radiation" are more extensive.
Renaissance of an ancient art
The study of the influence of so-called "water veins", "terrestrial radiation" or "geomagnetic zones" is nothing new. To deal with this today is to pursue the renaissance of an ancient art, which, just as a lot of other valuable knowledge and skills, has unfortunately been edged out by mindless materialism. The rediscovery of these connections is also an imperative to ensure that in future, in the construction of settlements, schools and hospitals, the grave errors of recent decades are no longer made. It is hard to believe how many such buildings have risen out of the earth in the most inappropriate locations, in places that are virtually predestined to allow nothing living to blossom. Where, for example, the legionnaires of ancient Rome would not even have pitched their tents for a single night; today there live - or rather vegetate - people who have not the slightest hint or knowledge about their plight.
The electromagnetic fields emanating from underground water are located by dowsing (source: Cowan & Girdlestone, Safe as houses).
Many illnesses are promoted by geopathogenic zones. The scale ranges from headaches to tumour diseases.
Many illnesses are promoted by geopathogenic zones. These range from headaches to tumour conditions that defy successful treatment without a thorough elimination of the aforementioned unfavourably influences Several years of exposure to the influence of a strong geopathic zone practically guarantees illness. The exact timing of the incidence is dependent only on accompanying circumstances, such as the individual's constitution, or the genetic disposition to an organ weakness.
Water line or water courses are here of the most important type of energy line in terms of geopahtogenic zones. Underground water, rather than surface water such as lakes and rivers, tens to be most likely to cause problems because it can change the earth's magnetic field and thereby also will effect the human's magnetic field.
These underground waters can be located by dowsing (source: Cowan and Girdlestone, Save as houses)
As water flows it , it has the ability to dissolve and carry different forms of contamination. It is highly conductive, and as a receiver and transmitter of information via vibrational transfer transer, it can carry a range of imprints, both negative and positive.
"This information can be released and detected in the field of information projected by the movement of water underground.
Underground water lines will pick up radiation of the energy flow of that water line. Usually when the field generated by a dirty water course is cleansed up this clears issues with other forms of geopathic stress that cross that line, such as nodes or crossing points of geomagnetic grids.
Much like geological faults, when drowsing for water courses it is the field created that is located, rather than the water itself. These fields can effect these living above them in a variety of ways, including inexplicable lethargy, insomnia, short-term memory loss, panic attacks, depression, headaches, loss of balance, muscle and joint pain, and light hypersensitivity."(source: http://www.geomancyaustralia.com/what-is-geopathic-stress/
On the following website we find also a great variety of wonderful information in that regard: http://www.helios3.com/geopathic-stress.html
Geopathic stress is a distorted or disrupted electromagnetic field of the Earth (Schumann Resonance / Waves). The Earth resonates with an electromagnetic frequency of approximately 7.83 Hz – Schumann resonances (SR), which falls within the range of (alpha) human brainwaves. Underground streams, sewers, water pipes, electricity, tunnels and underground railways, mineral formations and geological faults distort the natural resonance of the Earth thus creating geopathic stress (GS). Sleeping or spending a lot of time in geopathic stress zones can can ill effects on our health, performance and wellbeing. Schumann Resonance
In 1952, a German physicist W.O. Schumann identified 7.83Hz as a frequency of the earth’s magnetic field. 7.83Hz frequency falls within the range of natural human alpha brainwaves which is optimum state for well-being and healing.
What causes geopahic stress? Schumann Resonance (7.83Hz) which is a natural frequency of the earth’s magnetic field can be disrupted or distorted by underground water streams, geological fault lines, underground caverns and certain mineral deposits such as coal, oil and iron. Apart of natural earth’s disruptions, man-made structures such as railways, motorway cuttings, embankments, bridges, quarries, tunnels, mines and underground bankers can cause geopathic stress. Steel pilings, metal fences post and road signs stakes as well as buried gas, electricity and water mains and sewers can disrupt Schumann Resonace and cause geopathic stress. Certain types of building foundations and structures can be another cause of GS. (Source: http://www.helios3.com/geopathic-stress.html)
Geopathogenic zones- what should we do?
The most varied ailments can foremost be attributed to an unfavourable position of the bed. This fact alone shows how important the investigation of geopathic stress zones is. Besides, when we consider that many generations were practically unconcerned with this question, the need to reacquire this knowledge becomes all the more strikingly evident, if we have a real interest in healing.
Experience shows that only in the least of all cases does the necessity not arise to change the location of the bed, in order to escape the influence of a geopatthic zone. Often hundreds of people, on a number of floors one on top of the other, are exposed to such zones. A truly catastrophic state of affairs that one ought to address with the systematic demarcation of such problematic areas. And from the beginning, no building should be approved without the geopathic zones being identified. After all, experienced dowsers are available in many places to carry out investigations.
Today's urban and housing construction is a complete parody. It often appears that we deliberately want to go into the wrong direction.
In suspected cases where there is presently no available possibility for such investigations, any change of the bed position will provide temporary relief. This measure at the very least, reduces the likelihood that the one and same area of the body will continue to be affected.
Whoever has a dog at home, can observe how it behaves in certain places. If the animal becomes restless, this testifies to the fact that the location is not appropriate as a resting place, or a place to sleep. One finds a completely opposite behaviour with cats. They are "radiation seekers" as are, incidentally, snakes and bees. Plants also can point out geopathogenic zones, for example, when they show strikingly poor growth, are unnaturally branched out, or exhibit tumours. Four-leaf clovers also indicate such a zone.
Not every geopathic zone presents the same risk. Some vary their intensity not only during the course of the day, but in this are also dependent on the phases of the moon. The peak radiation has been observed between the hours of 12 midnight and 4 a.m. as well as the period of full moon.
The effect of certain zones can be neutralised by a suitable screening. However, the most reliable method to escape their influence always remains to avoid the zone, for example by changing the position of the bed.
Underground water courses, geological faults, ore and deposits can be measured radiesthetically as disturbing "fields" or "radiation zones".
Pic source http://www.geomancyaustralia.com/what-is-dowsing/ On this picture a waterline was detected that was the reason for the trees unusual growth.
In houses, plumbing (especially when metal pipes are used) or heating pipes (for example central heating pipes (for example central heating embedded in the flooring) can have a disturbing effect. this effect is reinforced by "electric smog", thus by the radiation of electrical appliances (such as televisions or computer screens). If an electrical appliance is set up on a geopahtogenic zone, this can lead to a scattering of the radiations, whereby the entire room is "contaminated", as it were.
Naturally, one also ought to pay particular attention to radiation zones in hospitals. In some cases known to us, the effect of geopathogenic anomalies was so strong that it increased the mortality rate many times over in certain beds. Such experiences are, as a rule, well known to the attending staff, but they are all the same not taken seriously because we have no explanation for them.
Also in certain school classes it might be advisable to change the seating plan regularly every three weeks. Many children who are noticeable by being distracted or tired behave perfectly normally as soon as they are no longer strained by a fault zone.
If one has managed to escape the influence of a geopathogenic zone - perhaps by changing the position of the bed - one should certainly not expect an immediate improvement in health. According to experience, it takes some time before the unfavourable influence wears off.
Modern dwellings - a sad parody
Urban and housing construction was once a true science that embraced extensive knowledge of the terrain, the wind and air currents, as well as the knowledge of the influence of the different sides of the globe, and numerous other conditions. One had a fair idea of the qualities and dangers of particular places.
In contrast, contemporary urban planning and housing construction are like a sad parody. Much valuable knowledge has not only been lost, but sometimes we appear deliberately to go in the wrong direction and do not shrink for example from inhabiting dried-out marshes, radioactive sites and other unfit locations.
The construction of dwellings away from geopatthic fault zones is an important basis for good health. From a more comprehensive standpoint, everything that exerts a disruptive influence with its radiation, and thereby weakens the body, has the effect of a fault zone. Therefore one should not ignore other significant facts, such as the building material.
Considered from the viewpoint of energetics and building biology, reinforced concrete buildings are a disaster. Suitable materials for housing construction would include, for example, wood - the best building material - or brick. While in most cases it is not possible to build a home entirely of wood, it is recommended to use a lot of it at least on the inside, such as for the wall surfacing or the floor. Ceramic tiles are only advisable for functional rooms, such as the bathroom or the toilet. Linoleum flooring, much praised as being easy to maintain, has an unfavourable energetic effect.
Basically, natural materials have a stimulating effect because they emit constructive energy for decades. In contrast, synthetic materials exert a stressful effect; the best that one can expect of them is that they are neutral, thus cause no harm.
The energetic effect of home fittings
However, it is not only the materials, but also the entire fittings of a dwelling that has an effect on us. Unfortunately, many types of facilities exclude every upswing of the spirit. Uniformity and monotony, as well as simple neglect kill inspiration and create an environment that does not foster the inner maturing of human beings.
All that we surround ourselves with reinforces certain currents that act to further or inhibit. When we live surrounded by bare walls or a disordered collection of sundry insignificant items, amid things that are only there because they were once fashionable or someone gave them to us, they only reinforce our own apathy and dullness. If, to the contrary, we surround ourselves with things we consider beautiful and inspiring and with which we have a living relationship, they mediate energy, and we yield to the longing to move forward and in some way to grow as human beings. Hence, an important piece of advice says: do not neglect the arrangement of your home! Strive all the more to make it an oasis, in which every detail pleases you, and to which you always come back with a thrill of anticipation.
In former times people were well informed on the secrets of the quality of a location: Specific buildings were erected at particular
locations, with the "terrestrial radiation" also having been taken into consideration.
This ancient knowledge, in the meantime, has sadly almost been completely lost and needs to be discovered anew in the interest of health.
When talking about furnishing, a hint shall be given on one of the major item of furniture - the mattress, with which we have several hours of direct contact daily. By far the most favourable energetically are horsehair mattresses, because this material radiates the energy of a large animal, and can even neutralise the weaker geopathic zones. In contrast to this, all types of mattresses with metal springs (spring core mattresses) area absolutely unsuitable. Their emissions are like high sharp peaks and attack the entire energy system of the resting person.
Still a little advice on the subject of "sleep": It can be advantageous for the health and well-being to remove all flowers from the bedroom. Flowers certainly have a significant aesthetic function in the living area; many people would feel something important was missing in a home without a flower arrangement. However, in the sleeping area flowers could have a detrimental effect on some people. If one is not sure of being able to tolerate them, then one should remove especially exotic and blooming plants. It is better to relocate these plants to other rooms in which people do not spend so much time.
The magic of old, valuable items.
The above-mentioned examples show how important it is that we develop a greater sensitivity to the energetic effect of the materials that surround us. The question as to whether one feels well always depends on the energetic state of affairs. The magic of old valuable things, for instance, lies not only in the appealing appearance, but frequently above all in the particular radiation. Handmade objects are enriched with the most valuable of all - with human energy, that is then gradually released.
The old masters were not only skilled and innovative. Many of them were able to "pack" much more energy into their products than the average person could. Whoever is sensitive, can perceive the energy emanating in a painting, a piece of jewellery, a musical instrument or also in masterfully crafted antique furniture, as warmth. The reason why we feel so good in a house that is build out of old handmade bricks also lies in the transportation of energy.
So, we have many possibilities of removing disturbing influences from our surroundings, and to further our well-being through high-energy objects. Whoever is able to reacquire a healthy sense or energetic correlations has thereby created a valuable basis for good health.
Forgiveness is putting these biblical words into action: "Do not hate your brother in your heart; rebuke your neighbour frankly so you will not share in his guilt. Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbour as yourself, I am the Lord." (Leviticus 19,17-18)
What does it mean to forgive? The word forgive comes from the Latin "perdonare'', derived from 'donare', which means to 'hold harmless from, to give everything', to prefix 'per' reinforcing the action.
The phrase 'perdoner la vida - spare (pardon) a life' will evolve to 'pardonare - pardon' and finally 'forgive'. It means not to keep any resentment, putting aside vengeance; it is to forget, absolve, grant reprieve.... "And if for human weakness' tis too great/ To pardon all the burnings of : regret, / Oh, spare thyself at least the scourge of hate; / Tho' thou canst not forgive, thou canst forget."(1)
Why and how should we forgive? Anger, resentment and hatred are poisons that inhibit the offended person and day after day gnaw away at him. Resentment towards a person, family or community always gives rise to thoughts of vengeance, or even hatred; this state of affairs cannot be resolved without sincere and genuine forgiveness.
It is not easy to forget, and even harder to forgive. Today, many psychotherapists work with patients on this notion of forgiveness to help the individuals manage emotions such as anger, anxiety and depression. Olivier Clerc holds 'forgiveness workshops', allowing 20 to 40 participants; the first thing he teaches though, is not forgiveness but learning to ask for forgiveness: 'Why on earth should I ask for forgiveness when I am the one who has been hurt? It is absurd. But I do not ask forgiveness for what the other person has done to me; it is his responsibility. I ask to be forgiven for what I have done with what he said or did to me.
NOT TO FORGIVE IS TO PREVENT OURSELVES FROM FULLY LIVING IN THE PRESENT, BECAUSE WE ARE CONSTANTLY 'THINKING ON THE PAST'.
I ask for forgiveness for having borne the wound for months and years. I ask to be forgiven for having used the other person as an excuse to keep my heart closed and nourishing hatred over an indefinite period. And in so doing I free myself! I regain self-control and personal responsibility.' (From an interview with Oliver Clerc) 'Have we not always been told that our heart wants to be clean and pure, as does our body, if not more? Have we not been taught that negative emotions, anger, hatred, resentment, rumour, snap judgements, and so on, end up leaving toxic deposits on the walls of our emotional system, thus preventing our heart from loving unconditionally? Nobody can pass through the narrow door of forgiveness while still burdened with anger over past events, or carrying a load of various grievances that will not do.' (2)
The need to forgive may take a trans-personal and collective dimension in cases where ancestral conflicts between ethnic or religious groups have led to wars, terrorism or genocide. In the absence of forgiveness, suffering is perpetuated, and bitterness and hatred are transmitted from one generation to the other, without ever reaching the necessary liberation from this enchainment to evil. This is the karma of peoples. For example, some states have committed genocide, like in Guatemala against the Ixil-Maya Indians.
On the road to forgiveness, we should be able to translate aggression feelings into words, and to achieve this, we will need a sympathetic ear, a confidant or a friend, a trusted person who can demonstrate compassion or a suitable practitioner. Expressing our emotions will help us identify our suffering and alleviate them. The process of forgiveness can then begin: by freeing ourselves from our first faults. The desire to return evil for evil heightens the injury and keeps us continually in the past. It becomes difficult to live in the present, and future prospects diminish and even may disappear.
Not to forgive is to prevent ourselves from fully living in the present, because we are constantly 'thinking of the past'. But it is also to deprive ourselves of spiritual development, because these unceasing thoughts strain the brain to the point of sickness. Eckhart Tolle says: 'Forgiveness is to relinquish your grievance and to let go of grief. It happens naturally once you realise that your grievance serves no purpose except to strengthen a false sense of self. Forgiveness is to offer no resistance to life - to allow life to live through you. The alternatives are pain and suffering, a greatly restricted flow of life energy, and in many cases physical disease.' (3)
Can we forgive the unforgivable? Such as incest, rape, murder.....'Forgiveness is there to forgive precisely what no excuse would know how to excuse.' says the philosopher Vladimir Jankelevitch. It is 'made for such hopeless and incurable cases.'
The powerful testimony of an American death-row prisoner shows that it is possible to forgive the unforgivable. After having met with the parents of his victim, he said: 'I have never been so scared in my life and when they said they forgave me, I felt the ground opening up under my feet and I burst into tears. I was able to cry for months afterwards. By showing me what it is to be a human being, they have helped me to realise my crime.'
'FORGIVENESS OF THE CULPRIT CAN ONLY COME FROM THE PERSON WHO SUFFERED THE OFFENCE, NOT OTHERWISE."
Let us mention another incident: The picture of the little Vietnamese girl 'Kim' running naked down a village road, screaming in agony and desperation, which was portrayed on the front page of Life Magazine in 1972, had a surprising twist twenty-four years later. At a ceremony at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, a long granite wall on which are inscribed the names of the fifty eight thousand Americans who lost their live in Vietnam, Ms. Kim Phuc spoke out over the crowd to the author of her misfortune.
'If I could talk face to face with the pilot who dropped the bomb, I would tell him we cannot change history but we should try to do good things for the present and for the future to promote peace.'
Nearly five thousand veterans of the Vietnam War gave the young woman a standing ovation.
It took years for the Vietnamese woman to recover from the physical and psychological injuries she sustained during the attack. Offering her thank in the same breath to journalists, nurses, doctors and family members who helped her over the years following the events, she added: 'I learned that in order to be free I had to learn to forgive - the most difficult of all lessons. It didn't happen in a day and it wasn't easy. But I finally got it!'
Who are we condemn? 'Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to cast a stone at her' (John 8,7), said Jesus to the scribes and Pharisees who had brought to him a woman caught in adultery. Are we ourselves also without sin that we do not have to seek the forgiveness of those around us because of our negligence, selfishness, mistakes or other quirks? The media inundate us with information that can often elicit resentment towards a person whom we have never met and whom we blame for not thinking like us or imposing a behaviour or lifestyle which we find offensive. Resentment may then build up inside us and bring us to a state where we think that the whole world, and even occasionally God, is against us! Our thought-forms thus create autonomous entities, real power centres that work invisibly like pollution hanging over nations. Therefore, we too are greatly in need of forgiveness.
Rather than hate our enemies, we must love them, as Jesus has taught us:'But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you...'(Matthew 5,44). 'Pray', is the key which represents the best form of help we can render to those who have offended us; love for our neighbour is also manifested in this action. If we pray sincerely, it spontaneously leads to forgiveness, which frees us from our resentful thoughts.
Trust in God One who is guilty of causing injury to another person is strongly tied to this wrongful action, and of course with the offended person. However, one must take into the fact that the injured party can reinforce this link and be himself tied to the wrongdoing if he entertains thoughts of hatred and vengeance. This sad state of affairs can persist in the beyond after physical death, and into the next incarnation, where the cycle of this link of thread must come to a closure and unwind, even if we no longer remember the original action. The Cosmic Laws of the Creator that enable us to forget the wrongdoings of our previous life are very wise, because otherwise, in most cases, our present life would be impossible. This is why Jesus advises in the Lord's Prayer He gave to His disciples:'And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive them that trespass against us!'In this sentence, Abd-ru-shin tells us, 'lies the knowledge of the incorruptible and just reciprocal action of the spiritual laws ordained by the Will of God. At the same time it expresses the assurance of complete confidence therein. For the plea for forgiveness or redemption from guilt is conditional upon the petitioner having previously forgiven all the wrongs inflicted upon him by his fellow-men.' (4)
If we are offended, we should not therefore feed any resentment, any desire to return evil with evil. Have we not been told: 'To me belong vengeance and recompense. In due time their feet will slip, because their time of calamity is near and the things prepared for them draw near;, thus said the Lord in Deuteronomy 32,35 with reference to Sodom and Gomorrah. In his epistle to the Romans, Paul reiterates this same maxim:'Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written; Vengeance is mine. I will repay, says the Lord.'(12,17-19)
Recognising our faults Forgiveness is closely linked to repentance, to redemption from our faults, to purification; this is the way Jesus told His disciples: 'So watch yourselves. If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying, I repent, you must forgive them.'(Luke 17, 3-4). One can then understand why Peter came to Jesus and asked: 'Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?' Jesus said to him, 'I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.' (Matthew 18, 21-22). Here the number 7 is symbolic, and Jesus' response is significant: forgiveness is not calculated, it is heartfelt or it is not. It refers to the origin of the word itself: the giving of oneself, unconditional giving.
The strongest utterance on this subject was without doubt that made by Jesus on the cross: 'Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.' It is one of the greatest prayers of intercession ever made: that the Father might give humanity another chance to pick themselves up and make a fresh start. But one thing is required from mankind: that it repents for the inexcusable murder of the Bearer of the Truth. This prayer, though, does not allow us to interpret the death of Jesus on the cross in a wrong manner, namely, that He died to redeem our sins. This idea goes against nature and it could not be more contrary to the Laws of Creation. It is obvious that if it had truly been the case, this prayer would not have been necessary. This is why recognising our propensities and other faults is essential for progress. And it is through humility that we can receive strength for a beneficial change.
Can we receive forgiveness from a third party? The absolution given by a priest at confession, the presidential pardon which is only a relic of religion in a secular state....are contrary to the very act of forgiving, which can only be offered by the offended party. It is a wrong interpretation of the words of Jesus to His disciples: 'If you forgive anyone's sins, their sins are forgiven. If you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.'(John 20,23).
I should therefore like to conclude with an expert of The Grail Message by Abd-ru-shin, which clearly explains how these words should be understood, and the process of forgiveness itself: 'The actions of many religious ministers, however, indicate doubt in their own teaching, because they stand in direct contradiction to it, and by their deeds they openly disavow its basic tenets. For example, the bearing of confession and the imposition of penance, the sale of indulgences whether for money or for prayer, which is supposed to be followed by the immediate forgiveness of sins, and other similar customs, are, if considered calmly, a denial of the Divine Will resting in the Laws of Creation. He who does no more than merely engage in a desultory consideration of these practices will see in them nothing else but an absolute belittlement of the Perfection of God.
'When Jesus the Son of God once said to His disciples: "Whosoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them...", these words were not meant as a general licence to act arbitrarily. That would have been equivalent to upsetting the Divine Will as embodied in the immutable power of reciprocal action, which in its active working carries reward and punishment with incorruptible and Divine, and therefore perfect, Justice. It would have meant a permitted interruption of this law. This Jesus could never have done, neither did He do it, because He had come to "fulfil" the laws, not to overthrow them! "With these words He meant the lawful operations which rest in the Creative Will, whereby one human being can forgive that injury which he has suffered at the hands of another human being! Being the victim he has the right and also the power to forgive! His sincere forgiveness will turn aside and break the power of the karma which would otherwise surely develop for the other through reciprocal action, and in this actual happening lies at the same time real forgiveness. 'This forgiveness of the culprit can only come from the person who suffered the offence, not otherwise! It is for this reason that there is so much blessing and deliverance in personal forgiveness when it is honestly meant and intuitively felt. 'A person not immediately involved is quite naturally excluded from the threads of reciprocal action and therefore cannot actively and effectively intervene because of this fact. He can only intervene by prayer in such cases, the effect of which, however, depends on the condition of the souls of those immediately concerned. He himself must remain on the outside and therefore cannot bring about forgiveness! This alone rests in God's Will, which reveals Itself in the laws of just reciprocal actions, against which He Himself would never act, because they were perfect from the beginning according to His Will. '.......Thus no man can forgive another an offence unless he has personally been the sufferer! The law of Reciprocal Action would remain uninfluenced by anything not interwoven in it with the living thread, and this can only come about through being directly involved. Reformation alone is the living road to forgiveness! '
