Advanced Yoga Dynamics & Ancient Secrets of the Yogi/Mystic.

Disclamer: Yoga is extremely powerful and should be done 100% correctly. This information is presented for theory only. If you wish to practice any of these extremely powerful techniques presented here without a yoga teacher or other professional, you do so at your own risk. You have been warned.



Before we start: first set a pure intention: Ask yourself what is my intention in gaining this information. And that you will only use it for the good of all.
e.g. I am a child of God, The Source, The One, and on the journey back to the self & Divine Love...

Lesson1) What is Pranayama?

Pranayama is the combination of the Sanskrit words
prana = lifeforce and ayama = control or mastering.

When the Pingala Nerve—or the right nostril—is in flow, the Ida Nerve lies inactive or dormant and the gate of the left nostril remains obstructed. Similarly, when the Ida Nerve—or the left nostril—is in flow, the Pingala Nerve lies dormant and the gate of the right nostril remains shut. But when the Sushumana Nerve—or both nostrils, nadis (channels)—are in flow, the gates of both of them lie open and both Pingala and Ida Nerves are fully active.
Within the root of the nose, where the two nostrils converge and where the Ida and Pingala Nerves start, is one of the most vital and magical points in the body. This location is very sensitive and manifests a peculiar kind of intelligence. Their sensitiveness
and intelligence are displayed in selecting etheric electrons
from each breath of air that passes through the nostrils. The planetary rays also converge at this spot and control its functions.

Why? Because health or disease, success or failure, gain or loss, life or death, are the results that come from the way this center acts. The Control centre.

Left Nostril—Ida = negative electrons down the left side of the spine
-Female, negative pole.
+Attributes: Spiritual, humble, inward looking, truthfulness, kindness, benevolence, reverence,
Negative Attributes: timid, inaction, fear, obedience

Right Nostril- Pingala = negative electrons down the Right side of the spine
-Male, Positive pole.
+Attributes: Strong, courageous, outgoing, outward looking, martial spirits
Negative Attributes: unusual aggressiveness, matcho, in some males unbridled sexual passion.

The positive electromagnetic currents and the negative electromagnetic
currents that run alternately down Pingala and Ida Nerves respectively
meet at the Solar Plexus and other plexi of the Sympathetic Nervous
System, which lie along the spinal column and supply prana for the energy & vibration of the human vehicle. As the enormous branches that Pingala and Ida Nerves send out connect all of the plexus of the sympathetic system with the cerebrospinal system, much of the energy that is conveyed along Pingala and Ida is stored up in the different plexus, the chief of which is the solar plexus.

When Sushumana or both nostrils are equally in flow, both Pingala and Ida Nerves carry their respective currents down the spine at the same time, and these currents as they go down the spine distributing their
prana or life-force among the different plexus they carry what remains to the base of the spine, where they meet and supply prana to the Sushumana canal.

The Sympathetic Nervous System has its center in the Solar Plexus which is also an energy storage centre. The connection between the cerebrospinal and the sympathetic nervous system is made by the vagus nerve, which passes out of the cerebral region as a portion of the voluntary system to the thorax, sending
out branches to the heart and lungs, and finally passing through the diaphragm it loses its outer coating and becomes identified with the nerves of the sympathetic system, these systems help create connecting links between the systems and thus making man physically a single entity. The Cerebrospinal System is the organ of the conscious mind and the Sympathetic is the organ of the subconscious mind. The Cerebrospinal
is the channel through which we receive conscious perception from the physical senses and exercises control over the movements of the body.

This system of nerves has its center in the brain, if damaged movements such as balance would be affected. When the Solar Plexus is healthy it will radiate Life, Energy and Vitality to every part of the body and to every one that you meet, the body is filled with health, and all with everyone you meet will experience a pleasant sensation from you.

If then you wish to develop courage and power and become less timid and more positively charged, then practice breathing through the right nostril. At first you may find it necessary to close the left nostril with the forefinger, but you will gradually get control and will eventually be able to close either nostril at will with using only your concentration or focus. If you wish to cultivate any of the spiritual qualities, such as benevolence, kindness, cheerfulness and gain wisdom, then you will practice breathing through the left nostril.

Einstein, Relativity and the Space-time Continuum & beyond!!

Today I have chosen three cards, I do this for Past, Present, Future on the current question & Intention. This is a general question based on the energy surrounding the NOW & the end of Oct until the end of Oct 2011 into the 11.11.11 shift.. during the planets shift in conciousness into the 4th Dimension. These are the elements of space-time continuum & the vibration of Love in the heart..

Einstein, Relativity and the Space-time Continuum

In order to sidestep the issue of Newton's Third Law of Motion and the impossibility of matter traveling faster than the speed of light, we can look to Einstein and the relationship between space and time. Taken together, space, consisting of three dimensions (up-down, left-right, and forward-backward) and time are all part of what's called the space-time continuum. This spacetime is usually explained with a model where space is three-dimensional and time has the role of the fourth dimension. 

In his Special Theory of Relativity, Einstein states two postulates:

  1. The speed of light (about 300,000,000 meters per second) is the same for all observers, whether or not they're moving.
  2. Anyone moving at a constant speed should observe the same physical laws.
  3. Because the ideas behind Einstein's General Theory of Relativity are complex and still open to interpretation, this leaves the possibilities wide open for science fiction writers.

    We may not know how to bend space and time with our current physical technology, but a fictional civilization set in the future may be completely capable of inventing such a device with the right imagination.

    I do believe in the power of the mind though & this technology (The Mind) is capable of such a feat. Like the Mer-Ka-Ba meditation. This is a very powerful mediation I will share here at a later date. This creates a 'warp field bubble' around the aura of the person or object.
  4. Problems with Warp Speed

    Einstein helped the "Star Trek" writers manipulate space in a science fictional universe, but is it actually possible to build a spaceship that could propel people across vast galaxies in a relatively short period of time?

    Physicist Miguel Alcubierre has suggested the use of so-called "exotic matter," a theoretical type of matter with negative energy. If it could be found or created, the exotic matter would do the job of repelling space and time and creating the gravitational field. 

    The Mermaids & Dolphins Reading relating to this question...of space travel within the mind ...
1) Divine Magic " Extra magical energy surrounds your situation right now. Expect miracles!
2) Present situation is Have Faith, which I do for all lightworkers on this path of transformation.
3) Future influence is : Time to move on " It's time to let go of the old and worn out so that the new can come in" - this is about the power of NOW new ideas about reality...

Sunday the 23rd Oct



So here I  am after a crazy September. I chose a card this morning from Doreen Virtues Magical, mermaids & Dolphins Card deck which was Kitty's, 'Let yourself receive, allow others to give you loving care. Receive without guilt or apologies.' well that sounds nice as I've been hit with a small cold for the first time in many years! Kitty loved writing & sharing about angels, unicorns & I plan to carry on this positive tradition in her absence. I have many magical story's to share of my early life in India for example. I also update the Facebook page so do check it out & join me on a journey back to who we really are, which requires an open mind of course) 

Blessings to all light-workers throughout the 10 directions.

My Law




The sky may be cloudy but ever the sun will sweep on its course till the cycle is run.
And when into chaos the system is hurled, again shall the builder reshape a new world.
Your path may be clouded, uncertain your goal: move on - for your orbit is fixed to your soul. 
And although it may lead into darkness of night the torch of the builder shall give it new light.
You were. You will be. Know this while you are: your spirit has travelled both long and afar. 
It came from the source, to the source it returns, the spark which was lighted eternally burns. 
It slept in a jewel.  It leapt in a wave.  It roamed in a forest.  It rose from the grave. 
It took on strange garbs for long eons of years and now in the soul of yourself it appears. 
From body to body your spirit speeds on.  It seeks a new form when the old one has gone. 
And the form that it finds is the fabric you wrought on the loom of the mind from the fibre of thought.
As dew is drawn upwards, in rain to descend, your thoughts drift away and in destiny blend. 
You cannot escape them, for petty or great, or evil or noble, they fashion your fate. 
Somewhere on some planet, sometime and somehow, your life will reflect your thoughts of your now. 
My law is unerring, no blood can atone - the structure you built you will live in alone. 
From cycle to cycle, through time and through space, your lives with your longings will ever keep pace. 
All that you ask for and all you desire must come at your bidding, as flames from a fire. 
Once list’ to that voice and all tumult is done,  your life is the life of the Infinite One. 
In the hurrying race you are conscious of pause, with love for the purpose and love for the cause. 
You are your own devil, you are your own God.  You fashioned the paths that your footsteps have trod. 
And no-one can save you from error of sin until you have harked to the spirit within.

Anemone Symbolism, Rain and Fairies

Wood Anemone Fairy by Margaret Tarrant

Yesterday, I found two anemones standing in the vase on the table – one dark pink, the other violet. Whenever new flower appears in my life or in my house, I always take it as a message from the angels. Flowers are beautiful in themselves, but I am very aware of their deeper meaning or symbolism as well.

Anemone is derived from the Greek for "windflower". In mythology, it is said the anemone sprung from the tears of Aphrodite as she mourned the death of her love, Adonis.

In folklore the anemone is believed to bring luck and protection against evil (=negativity, wrong doing).

The flower is said to advise us about coming rain by closing its petals, and fairies were believed to sleep beneath the petals of the wood anemone during the night after they closed at sunset.

Priestess in Atlantis

Mermaid in Atlantis
In her book "Sage-ing while Age-ing" Shirley Maclaine writes that the people of Atlantis had red hair, slanted blue eyes, were very pale with white skin, slim and tall. That basically describes me! Interesting.

I know that I had an incarnation in Atlantis when I acted as a high priest or priestess. I don't think the genders were as explicit or defined then as they are now so I can't interpret the energy in terms of today's gender perceptions.

I see myself in front of a magnificent temple, on a marble platform, in a long blue robe with wide sleeves with arms outstretched, speaking to a huge audience of people who I'm telling something of importance. They are cheering at times and looking thoughtful and contemplative at others.

Just to be clear, of course you don't need to look like you did in Atlantis if you have similar memories today. Your consciousness can have manifested as a green or brown eyed, or short or dark skinned body today but you will know.

I definitely look like the Atlanteans Shirley describes in this life, which is interesting because it fits with my memories and trustworthy people such as Edgar Cayce and Ivica (Braco's teacher) have said that many “children of Atlantis" are returning to Earth at this important time. I know in my heart that this is true and that I am one of them. It is a visceral knowledge, not just a belief. If you are a child of Atlantis yourself, you will know exactly what I mean.

The Deeper Meaning of 1 in 2011

The Number 1, 11:11 and 2011

First, a little intriguing maths for you:

This is amazing and fun to do! This year 2011 we will experience 4 unusual dates:
1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11  

Now, take the last 2 digits of the year you were born, plus the age you will be this year - and it will add up to 111! Go ahead... try it out!

So, it is quite obvious that the number 1 is very important this year. For a while now, lightworkers and aware people all over the world have told me that they keep seeing 1:11 or 11:11 on their clocks or around them.

The number 1 has a very important message. In my book Unicorn Magic I explain that
One primarily deals with strong will, positivity, and pure energy. The number 1 is the number of new beginnings, action and leadership. Symbolically, 1 represents both kinds of action:
physical and mental. When 1 is recurring in your life, it indicates a time to take action, be optimistic, and initiate change. Frequent sightings of the number 1 encourage you that your actions will be rewarded.
Master Numbers (all the same numbers) energetically accentuate the meanings of single digits. They are considered to be some of the most powerful vibrations in the universe. They symbolize raw untapped potential and assist you in achieving union consciousness.
11, 111, or 11:11
You are reminded to let go of conditioned and limited ego-mind beliefs and come into alignment with your authentic self. Watch your thoughts. You are a conscious creator. You are becoming One with the Oversoul in the abundant creation of your heart’s desires.
(Excerpts from Unicorn Magic: How to Manifest Your Desires by Living a Life of Divine Love, pp. 97-100.)
 
The stone that vibrates to the master number 11 is Jade.

The master number 11 signifies the wounded healer and teacher but it also symbolizes the abundant potential of the soul. It reminds you of your potential to be a source of inspiration and illumination for people. The number 11 (this year) tells us we possess an exceptional amount of energy and intuition. Jade is a stone which carries much wisdom so it is not surprising that it vibrates to the number 11.

(Excerpts from The Tao of Mermaids: Unlocking the Universal Code with the Angels and Mermaids, p. 47)

Me, My Soul Group, And I

 
   The Story of Braco

A a few months ago, I received a parcel in the post from my dear friend Stephanie. Although Stephanie lives in California and I am staying in Germany at the moment, we keep in close contact and I feel like I have known her for ages – and I literally mean ages, as in thousands of lifetimes – although in this life we've only known each other for about a year.

Last year, Stephanie was hosting a spiritual book club on the radio, and my book Unicorn Magic was the first month's selection. Although the book club took place at 5 pm in San Francisco, and it was 3 am at my house in the UK, I stayed up and discussed my book in a wonderful, insightful dialogue around half the globe.

Stephanie has a blog, Diary of a Lightworker as well, which I think you will love, especially if you enjoy my blog and spiritual topics and experiences.

So, in the parcel from Stephanie was a book by Angelika Whitecliff about Braco. I had never heard the name before but after I had read a few pages I was curious, and went on Google to find out more. What I read intrigued me even more and when I saw that there was an event two hours away from me in Stuttgart, Germany, in just five days,  my curiosity compelled me to go. Well, I loved the entire experience and have been going ever since. I have Stephanie to thank for this inspiring, healing connection.

When I meet members of my Soul Group, it feels like I know them. I don't necessarily know their physique in this life, but my soul remembers. There is an instant connection. There is a feeling as if I am just picking up a friendship, or a relationship, where it ended. There is a feeling as if no time has passed since last being together. I also have a feeling that I can say just about anything, and be totally honest, and be understood and accepted. I usually meet members of my Soul Group under the strangest of circumstances, which are so unlikely that they have to be divinely orchestrated synchronicities. Karen, Stephanie's sister, is also a member of my Soul Group. I “met" her on Facebook, on Doreen Virtue's fan page. I visit this page only a few times a year and Karen's link is the only one I've ever clicked. She is also a wonderful and inspiring friend in my life.

 This time, when I went to see Braco, I saw an enourmous golden-white aura around him. At times, there were two of him, one much larger (about 20 feet) and he seemed to step outside of himself, towards the front. I felt deep inner peace and strength. When I left the atmosphere was light and peaceful, and also very playful.

My little two-year-old son came to greet me drenched. He had been having great fun splashing in the fountain outside the congress building.

Unexpected Gifts, Inner and Outer

St Michael with Halo - this Halo of Light is almost identical with the one I saw around Braco

Today, 8 July 2011, is my 11th wedding anniversary, so this is a very special day for me. Since Charles, my husband, had to be back in England today, and I am still in Germany, we decided to celebrate early, so last Saturday, on 2 July, I went to see Braco again, this time with my husband, dad, and two kids. Braco is pronounced "Brah-tso" and means "little brother" in Croatian. Sessions, or meetings, with Braco do not cost any money. He does not speak to visitors nor give interviews to the media, and yet 1000s of people come to his sessions. Here is a short description of Braco from his website www.braco-info.com:
Braco does not talk to his visitors, nor does he touch them or use any other form of nonverbal suggestion: He simply is gazing at them. But his successes and the reports of his visitors about fascinating recoveries and positive changes in their lives attract more and more people from all over the world. And during those silent sessions people feel deeply touched even without having any direct and personal contact with Braco. They feel touched by an invisible and silent power, which is flowing through them and they try to open and assimilate that power...
Braco never promises help or cure to his visitors and he also says about himself, that he is not a healer. He says: “I am a normal person, I just found that invisible energy and I want to share it with everybody. I know, that everybody else can feel and carry that energy as well...
Braco describes those moments, when he is standing in front of the people with following words: “I try to take all those people in my arms and give them an invisible and deep hug of love and warmth. I try to enlight that spark which we all carry in ourselves and which can build that wonderful flame of love in us.
From my own experience, I feel that this "energy" comes straight from Source, with Braco as the human transmitter or conduit. Source, and Braco, are non-denominational. They are not “copyrighted" to any one religion or philosophy. The experience of this energy is different every time, and cannot adequately be described in words. It has to be experienced.

 His teacher and mentor said Braco is a “Child of Atlantis".  I thought that was interesting.

At meetings with Braco, there is a beautiful tradition of bringing flowers to show appreciation, beauty and gratitude. The bouquets are handed to helpers as we walk into the session room, and another flower is given to us as we leave. I brought three different bouquets of flowers to the meeting: one of white roses, one of white roses with pink edges, and one of soft pink roses. When my husband and I left the gazing session, we each received a single deep red rose. I am drying the two blossoms and they are on the left side of my computer. They still emit a very special energy.

During the session, as I was gazing at Braco,  I distinctly saw his aura as opalescent, or sparkling white with rainbow colors dashing and dancing through, especially around is head. The “halo" around his head was about 1 m across, all around his head and touching his shoulders. It reminded me of the halos depicted on paintings of saints and angels in medieval churches. Now I definitely know, because of this experience, that these halos are real phenomena and not just pretty decoration or a symbol of heightened spirituality.

 I also saw his face in fragments, shifting, moving, doubling... like a painting by Picasso. I kept thinking there was something wrong with my eyes, but when I looked at the bouquets of lilies by his side, they were perfectly fixed and normal. As soon as I tried to look at him though, everything shifted out of focus again.

Now, as soon as I walked out of the session on my husband's arm, I felt that something was different with my right leg. (As a side note, I have not been able to walk properly since last October due to a brain tumor.) I was walking naturally! Of course, my leg was still weak, but it was moving the right way, the position of my foot which was always extended outwards was normal, and the movements of my muscles and knee joint were fluid and coordinated. I was standing tall, and felt connected or awakened to my own inner strength.

So, every time I see Braco, I am physically healed a bit more, but most importantly I have an all-pervading sense of inner peace, calm, and personal strength.

When we were leaving, my husband and I were stopped in the parking garage by a lady who was about to see Braco too. She saw our flowers and asked us if we were just coming from the event. She had a gift bag filled with eight Braco DVDs that she wanted to give somebody. We had a lovely chat and she left, after presenting us with her wonderful present.

Experiences on Spiritual Pills

Purple Frangipani Blossom

So, I thought I'd give you an update on the passiflora pills I have been taking, that have been  calibrated to me and blessed by John of God. I have just started the second container. Each one has 35 capsules.

They have been making me very tired and relaxed. Most importantly, I have been having the most amazing dreams in Technicolor. I am seeing images so clearly and vividly.

 In my dreams, I experience myself as whole, healthy, vibrantly happy. I also see a lot of flowers which are bursting with life and energy. Especially orchids in white, and purple blossoms (frangipani).

 I can sense the spiritual energy in them. Everything appears brighter, more defined, shining with light. So, at the moment, my body feels weak and exhausted, and my mind and soul are supremely happy. I also seem to be in a spiritual bubble which protects me from taking on negative energy, or thinking in ways that lower my vibration and then don't serve me or others.

Nuns, Witches and The Tenth Insight

Two nuns reading a book
I am reading The Tenth Insight by James Redfield at the moment. I am thoroughly enjoying it and a lot of the information sounds very familiar to me but when I got to the part of the I-narrator's past life reviews, I couldn't believe my eyes! The same thing happened to me but from a female standpoint!

He talks about being a Benedictine monk who came into contact with the Spirituals, a Gnostic order of the Franciscans who meditated and pursued a direct mystical link with the ultimate reality. He was enthusiastic about spreading and sharing their Truth but the Gnostics (and their methods) had been excommunicated by the church officials and persecuted. When his "heretic" dealings were found out, he was captured and languished at the stock for days before being decapitated.

In my book Unicorn Magic I write about my past life memory of being strangled to death publicly as a “ witch" for sharing spiritual truths which undermined the authority and power of the male church officials of the time.  I also wrote about my past life memory of being a nun dressed all in white in mediaeval times and recognising everything in Assisi when I went there in 2007. I know I was a nun in medieval Italy but I am not entirely sure which order I was in.

I am fascinated with the all-white monastic garments or habit I am wearing in my vision so I have been researching. This is what answers.com says about the different colours of monastic orders:
Very few nuns or sisters wear any habit at all since the 1960s. But before that, most religious communities and orders (and there are a lot of these) had a distinctive habit that marked which community the sister or nun belonged to. Quite a few communities wore black habits and that goes back to the very early days of monastic life in the Church when most monks and nuns were members of the Benedictine order, founded by St. Benedict of Nursia in the fifth century AD. The Benedictines, who still exist and still form a large percentage of the monastic religious out there, were pretty much the only or at least the main thing going in religious life in the Church until the middle ages when groups like the Franciscans (St. Francis of Assisi) and Dominicans (St. Dominic) came along in the 13th century. So, for a long time, black, which was decreed by the Church for most Benedictines in the 8th century, was the main colour of all religious habits. But even the Benedictines didn't all wear black. A reform of their order, the Cistercians, wore and still wear, white. Some Benedictine monks and nuns wear white, too. Some Franciscans wear black, but a lot of them wear brown or grey. Dominicans wear white with black capes and the nuns, when they are fully professed, wear black veils with white habits.

How to Write Without Hands

I am so excited because this post today is  an experiment. I am not actually writing it but speaking it into my computer's microphone. The computer is then writing my words down for me. This is a  first.

Only two days ago I got my lovely new MacBook Pro and I am so enjoying it. Now I have installed Dragon Dictate, which is a speech recognition software.

Since the last recurrence of my illness  eight months ago I have not been able to use my right hand and arm. This meant that I had to take a long break in my book writing although the next two books are already composed and finished in my head.

Yesterday, I wrote 7000 words alone by dictating them to my computer. It was so liberating and so much fun! Technology is wonderful in its advances when we use it to our  and others' benefit.

I cannot yet reveal the title of my new book to you but it will be about Soul Mates, Twin Flames, the different Life Purposes that draw them together and the Universal Laws that govern the dynamics of soul attraction.

Passiflora, Blessed Herbs and John of God

Passiflora at the Casa
Today I  began taking the blessed healing herbs from John of God. The capsules are always filled with passiflora, grown in the Casa and with the label of the Farmacia de Dom Ignacio. The are calibrated to my individual vibration specifically.  Already I can feel that they contain the same energy (I call it Source energy) that Braco transmits. Very exciting! I have to take the capsules (3x1/day) for 55 days. I have a feeling that this might be because 5 is the number of change, new life periods, and transformation.

The passiflora capsules I am taking.
Passionflower or passiflora (Passiflora incarnata) is used in traditional remedies as a "calming" herb for anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and hysteria. During the early twentieth century, this herb was included in many over-the-counter sedatives and sleep aids.

In Germany, where I am at the moment, passionflower is available as an over-the-counter sedative in combination with other calming herbs such as valerian and lemon balm. It is also used in German homeopathic medicine to treat pain, insomnia, and nervous restlessness.

Today, professional herbalists use passionflower (often in combination with other calming herbs) to help treat insomnia, tension, and other health problems related to anxiety and nervousness.

The Celestial Wishfulfilling Tree within Your Body

Ananda Kanda
All transactions in the universe, whether they are social, physical, or spiritual operate on a principle of exchange. If you want to buy something, you offer the equivalent worth in money. If you want a favor from a friend, you might offer a favor in return. Even so-called "selfless actions" have their own reward. No energy is ever lost.

The heart chakra has a small sub-chakra, called the Ananda Kanda (Sanskrit for "root of bliss"), wherein dwells the Celestial Wishing Tree. Focus on this chakra while bathing yourself in the golden light of Divine Source energy. This "tree of celestial wishes" bestows even more than is desired, in accordance with your Divine Blueprint, but at the foot of the tree is a small altar onto which one first makes an offering. This energetic offering is our contribution or our gift. We may offer our loyalty, creativity, faith, openness, or dedication. This willingness to contribute creates an openness – think of how you react when someone offers to help.

However, in the moment of prayer, we can also offer up anything that is NOT part of the prayer itself. If our prayer is to find love, we can offer up whatever stands in the way of love. If our prayer is peace, we can release from ourselves whatever parts are holding on to anger or grudges. If we truly let go and erase whatever stands in the way, there is nothing left but the creation of our true intentions.

Opal Children

Opal

Recently, I heard that an acquaintance had given birth to an Opal Child. Of course I was intrigued to find out more. I discovered that Opal Children is a new, and very fitting, name for the Rainbow Children who are just beginning to incarnate on this planet. I tell a lot more about the special purpose and qualities of these amazing children as well as the story of my own Rainbow Child in my book Unicorn Magic.

Opals are iridescent gemstones which reflect in a myriad of colors. Mostly, Opals are white gemstones which reveal a rainbow of colors but there are also Fire Opals which are darker and are alight with an inner fire. They are one of the most powerful healing stones.Reading this list of Opal specialties, we can see how this is a perfect "new age" stone for the dawning Golden Age.
  • Opal allows for true and spontaneous actions.
  • Opal helps to awaken the psychic or mystical attributes that lie within.
  • Opal is good for communication.
  • Opal helps to release feelings that have been pent up.
  • Opal is good for the ability to clearly express yourself, to connect with others, and to voice your opinions.
  • Opal is the stone of great achievement.
  • Opal is a good stone for writers.
  • Opal assists in letting go of anger.
  • It is said to be the stone of love, but only to faithful lovers.

The Miracle of Braco

Braco

Braco (prn. Brah-zo) means "little brother" in Croatian. His given name is Josip (Joseph) but only his parents still call him that. He says: "We all carry a seed inside, which can become a beautiful fruit one day." In other words we are an extension or expression of the Divine - a Divine spark which can one day become a Divine Flame. I went to see Braco for the first  time yesterday in Stuttgart, Germany and it was an experience I will never forget and which touched me so deeply that I even see differently today - it's as if I'm floating and everything is filled with light. In a way, the experience of Braco's gaze of pure unconditional love allowed me a direct realization of my divine identity. This energy that flows through Braco and is transmitted to others through his eyes comes directly from Source and is pure Life, Light and Love. When I looked into Braco's eyes, I saw Jesus. This is how Source (Universal Intelligence, God) sees every single one of us - with unconditional love and acceptance. Also, Braco seemed to lose definition when I looked at him, at times I saw him twice, as if he was stepping outside of himself and that night I saw auras, with colors, around everyone.

Braco does not talk to his visitors, nor does he touch them or use any other form of nonverbal suggestion: He simply gazes at them. He does not call himself a healer, does not instruct anybody to break off any medical therapy they are currently doing, and does not claim to be special in any way. But his successes and the reports of his visitors about fascinating recoveries and positive changes in their lives attract more and more people from all over the world. And during those silent sessions people feel deeply touched even without having any direct and personal contact with Braco. They feel touched by an invisible and silent power, which is flowing through them and they try to open and assimilate that power.

Braco is the son of a lawyer and actually studied economics at university and had a successful private business until he was 26, when his Divine Calling manifested itself in a way that was impossible to resist. There are several books and DVDs (in English, German and Croatian) about him if you are interested in finding out more.

Past Lives: Spiritual Tourism vs. Healing of Inner Wounds

Allegory of Giotto di Bondone
Allegory of Chastity
c. 1330, Fresco, Lower Church, San Francesco, Assisi

In my book Unicorn Magic: How to Manifest Your Desires by Living a Life of Divine Love I describe how I was told by the inner voice that knowledge of past lives only serves us if we focus on healing, not on mere curiosity or spectacles. I also describe my spontaneous past life regression to the time I was publicly strangled as a "witch" which healed my persistent throat illnesses.

Since then, I've had insight into 2 more lives on Earth, this time through dreams and visions.

Now, I know I haven't spent much time on Earth but I can at the moment recall 3 different past lives on this planet. Initially, I was a priest - a High Priest - in Atlantis. At first I thought I was female with powerful energy but I am not entirely sure... I see myself as male, mostly. Anyway, I can see myself arms wide in front of a big beautiful white temple on something like a stage or a pedestal before a huge crowd. I know I have a lot of influence over these people. I want to use my power and charisma for good (I belong to the Children of the Law of One). This mostly works...I share spiritual truth, knowledge and inspiration. But I also have arrogance and tend to "look down" - literally and figuratively - on the ones I view as "below me", i.e. not as smart, not as advanced, not as cultured.

Then, I can also recall a lifetime as a Catholic nun in medieval Italy. I am not sure if this was before or after the "witch" episode because they were pretty close together - only a few centuries apart. I am from a noble family, aristocratic looking, and I wish strongly, almost fervently, to dedicate my life to my spiritual practice and progress. I know the only way I can do this is by entering a convent and becoming a nun. (Interesting that in this lifetime I attended a private all-girls convent school from the time I was 10 - 16.) I recall myself as wearing an all-white dress and covering my light and thick long hair with a white hood. I also remember speaking to God a lot and finding God to exist in the still inner voice of my heart. I was a mystic. I also remember taking a vow of poverty. This was one of my hardest beliefs to break free from in this life, that spirituality must equal poverty. Now I know that money is Divine energy, like everything else. Money is love which blesses whoever and whatever it touches. God is Abundance, and by celebrating beauty we are glorifying God.

John of God & Me


Yesterday, my photograph went in front of John of God from Abadiania in Brazil for the first time. I have been waiting for this day for a loong time, but I had to learn patience. All in Divine Time.

On the same day, 19th May 2011, Dr Wayne Dyer posted this on Twitter:

I recently had a healing encounter with John of God from Brazil and I am seeing love everywhere. 

I always need to be invited and asked before I go to see anyone, and the guidance towards John of God has been the most persistent yet. I also saw this film: Healing - Miracles, Mysteries and John of God and loved it. It really spoke to my heart on a higher dimensional level.

What's in a Name?

Saint Catherine of Alexandria
 A lot. Have you ever thought about the meaning of your name? Don't forget, you chose your own name before birth and it carries many vibrational messages for you. If you married and adopted a new last name, there's a new incoming vibration. In The Tao of Mermaids I tell you how to use Angel numbers and numerology to discover your Life Path and Soul Expression number, amongst others. But, apart from this very useful information, there is also  the literal meaning of your name.

My good friend Sophie was going to name her second son (1 year older than my first) "Kiran", the Sanskrit word for "ray of light" or "sunbeam". He ended up being called something entirely different, though, and nobody knew about this "change of heart" until I named MY son Kiran after his own instructions (he talked to me prior to conception and while I was pregnant, a so-called "spirit baby") a year later. Now, it never occurred to me before to use a Sanskrit name although my (English) husband grew up in India, and has strong familial, ancestral and spiritual ties with the country. My friend laughed and said: "Well, the universe must have saved that one for you!"

My own name, Katharina, comes from the Greek and translates to "pure". There are many versions and variations of my name. It's also popular amongst the saint and royal names. The Angels told me to use my nickname "Kitty" for my spiritual work because the vibration of it is very conducive. My middle name is the name of a German mystic and saint, and my last name is spiritual as well. I always feel that my name "suits me" and also gives me lot to live up to, which I like.

What about our own name? What does it mean? Do you feel comfortable with it?

Parrots, Feng Shui and the Dominican Flag

Gemstone Parrot
The other day, somebody sent me pictures of several animal statues (turtle, elephant, frog, lion, rabbit etc.). They were all lovely and made from very interesting crystals but it was the last – a parrot – that really caught my eye. Since then, I have been thinking about parrots and what they symbolize. So, I did some research and found the following information:

In Chinese culture, for hundreds of years the parrot has held a place of honor in ancient China. Often kept in the living quarters of women, parrots were considered the keeper of their secrets. Throughout the years parrots have come to symbolize several different things in the Chinese culture:
  • Traditionally parrots, and other birds, symbolized freedom and long life. A parallel is often drawn between a bird and the life experience and wisdom that comes with old age.
  • A pair of parrots symbolizes affection, fidelity and deep, enduring love – what we call “lovebirds” today.
  • Parrots are also associated with feng shui. According to feng shui, parrots symbolize positive energy. These birds are considered as bearers of good news and it is also said that the feathers of parrots possess different colors that represent the five elements of feng shui - water, wood, fire, earth and metal.
The flag of Dominica has a parrot at its center, symbolizing the flight to greater heights of fulfillment of the aspirations of the people.

In Native American tribal animal symbolism, parrots are considered messengers of specific prayers and can bestow blessings. I'm reading a book by Ken Carey (author of The Starseed Transmissions) right now called "The Return of the Bird Tribes" which is an account of the spiritual history of several Native American tribes. The "bird tribes" are closely connected to the angels and the Eternal Light. Birds, with their wings and ability to bridge heaven and earth stand for messengers from Source.

What is the Purpose of the Indigo Children?


Angels, Planets and Solar Systems
Earth has now reached a point in evolution where “ascension” is very likely, and these evolved souls are here to guide and pave the way. These souls are very old and advanced but most of them have not incarnated on this planet for a very long time, if ever. Many have incarnated in Atlantis and/ or Lemuria and feel a connection with these places, with spiritual healing and the power, intelligence and healing abilities of crystals, which were practiced and acknowledged in these civilizations.

Waves of unusual individuals are beginning to incarnate on earth—groups distinguished by their ability to make use of deeply ingrained memories and powers of consciousness acquired in previous incarnations in Atlantis and Lemuria. These individuals are literally the heralds of a quantum leap in consciousness.

Indigo children incarnate with different specialized talents, skills and abilities. Those that are referred to as the Children of the Blue Ray are especially powerful in terms of mental faculties and creative ideas; while those linked with the Green Ray connected to the Heart Chakra are the loving empaths, counselors and healers. When we look around, technology is developing at an unprecedented rate, and innovative ideas and discoveries abound. At the same time, alternative and complementary therapies are flourishing and there is a revival of interest in the healing powers of tress, plants, herbs and crystals.

Body, mind and spirit are interconnected. We speak of "embodiment" - our inner being expresses itself as and in physical reality. If treated with care, the body aids and cleanses the mind and spirit. The mind acts as the builder, which oversees and regulates the cell’s innate healing and adapting abilities. The spirit is the essence of life, infusing and inspiring the mind and body with transforming grace, beauty and creativity.

The spiritual dimension is the foundation upon which everything else rests, and the spiritual life is the substance where all originates. Until we have experienced this Reality for ourselves, it will remain unknown to us.
The German poet and philosopher Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 – 1832) affirms that, “All truly wise thoughts have been thought already, thousands of times; but to make them truly ours, we must think them over again honestly, until they take firm root in our personal experience.”

What the new children have in common is a sense of self-awareness, and an awareness of others, far beyond that of previous generations. This inclusive and perceptive consciousness indicates a shift in consciousness from competition to cooperation, and from anger, hatred and violence to compassion, empathy and unity consciousness.

The Difference Between Being Broke, and Being Poor

"Consider the lilies in the field, how they grow: they neither toil, nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." (Matthew 6:27-29)


When you practically apply the techniques outlined below, day after day, you will never think of yourself, or experience yourself, as poor again!

Do you know the difference between being broke, and being poor?

If so, you are already well on your way to manifesting abundance in all areas of your life. An abundance-conscious person may find themselves temporarily broke, or with an empty bank account, but they will never feel poor. Poverty is a state of mind, just as much as prosperity is a state of mind. Poverty focuses on lack, and abundance focuses on substance.

By realizing that we are made of Substance, we realize we are ALWAYS connected to a constant, neverending stream of supply. This Substance that made us is the Substance of all the Universe, molded by Infinite Intelligence, or God. Universal Mind interpenetrates our mind and our mind interpenetrates and pervades our body. Its substance penetrates every atom of our body. We are never separate from it because WE ARE IT.

However, by focusing on lack and loss, we are holding ourselves separate from the flow of substance in our lives. The good news is that abundance is always available to us because it is the nature of the Universe, and our own nature. The mighty oak tree starts as a small acorn. The seed in the earth never worries or frets or doubts that it will grow into a magnificent tree. It knows it purpose. It trusts and unfolds according to its nature.

We can plant a small seed of a tree and see it expand and unfold into a magnificent demonstration. But if we doubt, lack trust, or lack faith, and we dig up our seed to check on its progress then we prevent its natural growth process and we are left with nothing. Then we say - see, it does not work! The tree does not grow! Not so. Our doubt, worry and anxiety have prevented it from growing. When given over to its own nature and the laws of the Universe, it grows perfectly.

So it is with ideas. We have a wonderful idea, we get excited about it, we set the wheels in motion... and when after a few days, we do not see the progress, we exclaim, "It will never happen" or "It does not work". What has really happened is that the idea was unfolding perfectly into its own magnificent demonstration, but we have dug it up to check on its progress due to lack of faith and trust. You see how faith, conviction and trust are necessary ingredients in the manifestation process?

There is never a shortage of air, no matter how many people breathe. We are not taking away our neighbour's supply of air by breathing ourselves, just as we are not taking away someone else's supply of love, health, wealth, or success, by experiencing it ourselves. There is always enough for everyone. Universal Mind knows no lack, and no limitation. There is much more money on the planet now than in any previous time in history that we know of. There is no end to the supply; only so far as the finite mind perceives an end, or lack, or loss, then of course that is what it must experience.

By changing your thoughts, you can change your point of attraction, and the level of abundance that you experience in all areas of your life -- relationships, career, health, wealth, joy, love -- will change accordingly. This Law always works!

Unicorn Message: I Am Close to You

Lady with a Unicorn by Raphael (1483 – 1520)

Today, I was drawn to Diana Cooper's Unicorn Cards. I am very close to unicorns and the energy they emit. My first book, Unicorn Magic, was written by me under direct instruction from the unicorns and angels and with a straight channel to higher consciousness. I "downloaded" entire blocks of information and just wrote down what was told to me. More and more lightworkers are now connecting to their unicorn guide and I get more questions about unicorns than about angels even! So, what exactly are unicorns?

Unicorns are seventh dimensional, ascended, etheric beings, fully of the angelic realms. They are pure thoughts or aspects of the divine, in the same way that angels are. A unicorn is also the familiar, or spirit animal, of Mother Mary. Unicorns represent Christ Consciousness. The first time they appeared on Earth was in the early days of Lemuria. Later, they were also present in the Golden Age of Atlantis, when everyone was able to connect to them, just as they did to their Guardian Angel. Unfortunately as Atlantis devolved into a low frequency, the beautiful unicorns could not bring their energy down to such a low level, so they withdrew from our planet. Now that consciousness is rising again, and more and more people are aligning with the highest truth, these lightworkers are able to connect to Angels and Unicorns again, as witnessed by the growing interest and recent flood of books on Angels, Self-Help and Spirituality.

Unicorns remind us of who we truly are. While angels work through the heart, unicorns work with the soul. Their horn is actually an energy spiral or vortex emanating from their third eye. It can be compared to a magic wand, pouring out divine energy. Wherever they direct this light, healing takes place.

Today's healing message from the Unicorns says:

Closeness

Your unicorn is close to you. Allow yourself to relax into its love and trust that your wise and beautiful spiritual companion is helping you.

Affirmation: I know my unicorn is close to me.

Magnolias - Flowers of Divine Beauty, Life Force and Perfection

Magnolia
For the past few weeks, I keep thinking of the magnolia flower. It pops into my head all the time. The image is so persistent that I finally decided to find out more about what it means.

Magnolias are a striking variety of flower because the magnolia blossoms are so large. The flower is associated with nobility, perseverance, dignity and a love of nature. The magnolia tree is a symbol of magnificence because of its impressive height and enormous flowers.

The magnolia tree was named after the French botanist Pierre Magnolia in the 1600s. The flowering tree has more than 80 varieties including a striking yellow blossom, the goldfinch, or the popular white blossom, Magnolia grandiflora. The scent of the flower varies depending on which variety is used. Each color leads to a different meaning. The white magnolia flowers stand for purity and perfection. The pink magnolia flowers symbolize youth and innocence together with joy. The green magnolias represent joy coupled with health and good fortune. The purple magnolias send out vibrations that support your wishes for alignment with your truth and physical wholeness (health).

A "steel magnolia" is a popular phrase denoting the strength a Southern woman possesses. This phrase was popularized by the 1989 movie "Steel Magnolias" in which six Southern women endure various hardships but rise above them. The term refers to the delicate yet strong nature women have.

In art, specifically Chinese art, the magnolia is used as a symbol of feminine sweetness and beauty. In China, magnolia flowers are symbols of purity and nobility. In Japan, the magnolia is used as a medicinal and ornamental plant. The flower is called Hanakotoba in the Japanese system of flower symbolism. This means that the flower is sublime, natural and shows love for nature. Magnolias are associated with the life force and are often presented at births.

Today's Angel Numbers: 55 and 11

Today's date is 5. 5. 11 which in Angel Numbers gives us the 55 and the 11.

When I close my eyes, I see the 55 in green, while the 11 appears as gold.

Green is the ray and color of Archangel Raphael ("God Heals"). This Archangel encourages you to communicate and share you inner wisdom to heal with thoughts, words and creativity. Many people are worried or scared of the number 5 (even more potent as 55) because it is the number of crisis and change. It even stands out visually amongst the single-digit numbers with its unpredictability, its complexity and its points and curves. I am very fond of this number however because to me this denotes a "healing crisis" and a change which can be perplexing and disconcerting at first, but which enables us to - ultimately - grow and progress towards something even better. This is a Divine universe that is always on your side! You are always guided and protected. The number sequence of 55 is a message from your angels that it is time to break free from old restraints and constraints that have held you back in the past. It is time to "live your passion!" The 55 is telling you that big changes are ahead, if not already around you.

The number 11 is also a Master number (a single digit doubled). They are called Master Numbers because there is inherent masterful, or extraordinary promise symbolized by them. This energy is multi-dimensional. Gold (and white) are the colors of Archangel Gabriel. The words associated with this Archangel are protection, intuition, clarity and self-discipline. In order to follow your higher path, Gabriel gives you the discipline and guidance to take the first steps, followed by vision and clarity to follow that path. Sometimes your life choices can be hard but Archangel Gabriel will be with you all the way. Divine revelation is intimately tied to the number 11. This whole year is under the aspect of the number 11, which is a "portal" for higher consciousness. The two columns of the side-by-side number ones comprising the 11 symbolize a channel from higher dimensions.

The potential: Master numbers represent energy that is not of this 3-dimensional plane of existence. These numbers point towards energy that is very spiritual and therefore can be unpredictable and hard to handle. They can also be wonderful catalysts though if you accept this energy and align with it. Some great examples of known individuals with heavy Master Number energy (in various, prominent positions in the comprehensive charts) applied in a positive way include the following:

*Mick Jagger, lead singer of the Rolling Stones, arguably the most famous (and most profitable) Rock and Roll band of all time.

*Robert Plant, lead singer of Led Zeppelin, one of the most famous Rock and Roll bands of all time.

*Bill Blass, one of the most celebrated and influential American clothing designers.

*Ray Bradbury, American writer of over 50 books and known as the a master of sci-fi and fantasy; awarded Grand Master Nebula Award and Writer's Guild Award.

*Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Scottish writer and creator of the modern detective story and the characters Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson.

*Doris Duke, American Heiress, one of the wealthiest people in the U.S. in the early 1990s and a notable philanthropist.

*Sir Laurence Olivier, British actor, director, and producer; considered by many to be the greatest British actor of the 20th century.

*Meryl Streep, American actress, considered to be one of the best actors of her generation (11 Oscar nominations).

Prayers Answered, Wishes Granted

Archangel Sandalphon announcing "Victory!" in Doreen Virtue's Archangel Oracle Cards
Tonight, I woke up from a deep sleep period at around 3pm (the sleep phase which is deepest, with no dreams) by a voice internally (not my own voice though, a male one) saying loud and clear "it's done" -- in the sense of it's completed, it's finished, it's granted. Anyway, I felt supremely happy and like all was right in my world... I couldn't go back to sleep for 2 hours.

Later on in the day, I pulled the following card from Doreen Virtue's Archangel deck:

Sandalphon says: 

"Victory!" Your prayers have been heard and answered. Have faith!"

"You deserve this time of victory. Your unwavering focus and dedication have resulted in blissful manifestation. Peace and pleasant feelings are yours right now. Let your focus be on this present moment, and savour each feeling and experience fully. Know that the future is taken care of in a positive way, as you allow yourself to enjoy the present moment. Feel good about who you are, and know that your success benefits others."

How perfect is that!

Meanings and Soul-utions to Karmic Debt Numbers 13, 14, 16, and 19

What follows is a description of the four Karmic Debt numbers 13, 14, 16, and 19.

Most obvious in the day or year of your birth, but can also be found as your Life Path, Expression or Soul Purpose number.

To the meditator and mystic, 13 is a number of power and divinity; though superstition represents it as the opposite. If it has any destructive power at all, it is only because of the negative thought surrounding it for so many countries. For those who have mastered its lessons, it is constructive and lucky. Its sum is 4, but behind it is the 1 and 3 – insistence upon the virtues of power, enthusiasm, constancy, focus and persistence. Its warning is the danger of backsliding into laziness and negativity. One must learn to move into a four corners/ square type of construction. One must move from "building on sand to building on rock". Its slogan is: "Work on the material plane". Its title is: "Trials and Tests of Proficiency".

Those people who show a number 13 karmic debt will work very hard to accomplish any task. Obstacles stand in their way, and must be overcome over and over. You may often feel burdened and frustrated by the seeming futility of your efforts. There may be a desire to surrender to the difficulties and simply give up on the goal, believing it was impossible to attain in the first place. This is why some with the 13 karmic debt fall back into laziness and negativity. But your efforts are not futile, and success is well within reach. You simply must work hard, and show persistence in order to reach your goal.

The key to succeeding with the 13 karmic debt is focus. Very often the people with the karmic 13 do not concentrate or direct their energies in one specific direction, or on a single task, but scatter their energies over many projects and jobs, none of which amount to very much. A temptation with 13 is to take shortcuts for quick success. The result is a poor self-image, and the belief that one is incapable of amounting to very much.

The 14 Karmic Debt arises from previous lifetimes during which human freedom has been abused. Those born on the 14th or having 14 as the numerological value of their name are forced to adapt to ever-changing circumstances and unexpected occurrences. There is an acute danger of falling victim to abuse of drugs, alcohol, and overindulgence in sensual pleasures, such as food and sex. You must put the reins on yourself. Moderation in all affairs is crucial to overcoming this Karmic Debt. Also important is the need to maintain order in life, and to establish your own emotional stability. You must also be willing to adapt to the unexpected occurrences of life, all the while maintaining your focus on your goals and dreams. Flexibility and adaptability are at the very core of this struggle. Orderliness in your immediate environment is crucial to maintaining clarity and focus. Mental and emotional stability must be attained in order to avoid being tossed about by the ever changing fortunes in the external environment.

But the key to the 14 Karmic Debt is commitment. Life will resemble a roller coaster ride, but it will always travel in the right direction if your heart is set on what is true and good. Set yourself a high goal, maintain order wherever possible in your life, avoid excessive sensory indulgence, and maintain faith. Above all, do not give up on your dreams and goals. Those with the 14 Karmic Debt will experience life to the fullest, and as long as they entertain a high dream, they will achieve success and great spiritual development.

The 16 Karmic Debt -- wherever it shows up on the chart -- means destruction of the old and birth of the new. The 16 is about the fall of the ego, and all that it has built for itself. It is a watershed, a cleansing. All that has been constructed, and all that serves to separate the person from the source of life is destroyed. Through the 16, reunion with the great spirit is accomplished. This can be a painful process, because it usually comes after much ego inflation or aggrandizement. This results in a struggle between the ego and the divine will. Life presents challenges to your plans, if they are born out of ego-desires instead of the inner voice (of your Divine Self) which can be resented and struggled against. Of course, as your ego is attempting to go against the whole universe, it is a lost battle, and you will likely feel humbled in the face of the collapse that follows. This humility is the key to later success, however, because you will learn to follow the intimations of a higher reality. In the destruction of the old, a spiritual rebirth takes place with an entirely new awareness. This rebirth affects every area of your life. It is a life much the better for the fall.

Those with the 16 Karmic Debt must be careful of egotism. Very often, those with the 16 use their highly intuitive and refined intellect to look down upon others, and view the rest of the world as inferior. This causes acute alienation and loneliness. In addition, it attracts retribution, for the egotist is humbled more harshly than any other. False thoughts always lead to false results. When the 16 is in one of the core numbers, this process of destruction and rebirth is a continual cycle that actually serves to bring you into higher consciousness and closer union with the source of life.

The 16 Karmic Debt can be a path of progress and great spiritual growth if it is looked at properly. One develops great faith by placing one's life in the hands of God. Through such faith, gratitude and peace are firmly established.

The person with the 19 Karmic Debt will learn independence and the proper use of power. You will be forced to stand up for yourself, and often be left to stand alone. Difficulties will be faced and overcome through personal struggle. One of the central lessons for people with the 19 Karmic Debt is that you stubbornly resist help. Much of your independence is self-imposed; you simply don't want to listen to others, or to accept the help or advice of others.The 19 Karmic Debt can become a self-imposed prison if you do not open up to the reality or interdependence and the mutual need for love. The effect of Karmic Debt number 19 at different places of the numerological chart is as follows:

The most important lesson for the 19 Karmic Debt is: While you seek to stand on your own two feet, you are still a human being, deeply connected with others and in need of the support, assistance, and human understanding that all people need. Those with the 19 Karmic Debt will learn the hard way that "no man is an island", and that we are, indeed, "all parts of the One!"
