Ascended Master Teachings
Benjamin Creme
The Master Hilarion, in the teachings of Theosophy is one of the "Masters of the Ancient Wisdom" and in the Ascended Master Teachings is one of the Ascended Masters (also collectively called the Great White Brotherhood). He is considered to be the Chohan (Lord) of the Fifth Ray (see Seven Rays). [1] [2] [3] [4]
The Master Hilarion is believed to have been incarnated as the Apostle Paul of Tarsus and the Neo-Platonic philosopher Iamblichus. Some have believed that he was the Christian saint Hilarion. [5] This is unlikely, since the years Iamblichus, also known as Iamblichus Chalcidensis, (c. 245 - c. 325) was embodied overlap the lifetime of St. Hilarion (291 - 371). [6]
In October 1884 Helena Blavatsky made reference to Hilarion (using the spelling: "Hillarion") having just recently Ascended:
" "Eastern adept, who has since gone for his final initiation," who had passed, en route from Egypt to Thibet, through Bombay and visited us in his physical body. Why should this "Adept" be the Mahatma in question? Are there then no other Adepts than Mahatma Koot Hoomi? Every Theosophist at headquarters knows that I meant a Greek gentleman, whom I have known since 1860."
On 20 February 1881 Kuthumi, in one of his letters to Sinnett, referred to him as
"one of ours having passed through Bombay on his way from Cyprus to Tibet".
His travel to his "final initiation" is referred to in an entry in Henry Olcott's diary, dated 19 February 1881, written in Bombay:
"Hillarion is here en route for Tibet and has been looking over, in, and through the situation. Finds B– something morally awful. Views on India, Bombay, the TS in Bombay, Ceylon (––), England and Europe, Christianity and other subjects highly interesting." (Letters from the Masters of Wisdom, 2nd Series, page 93) [7]
[edit] Function in the spiritual hierarchy
C.W. Leadbeater wrote that the Master Hilarion's primary influence is upon the scientists of the world,[8] and in the teachings of Alice A. Bailey, the fifth ray, called by Alice A. Bailey the orange ray, which he is said to oversee, is called the ray of concrete science[9]. According to the Ascended Master Teachings, Hilarion took over the Office of Chohan of the Fifth Ray from the Ascended Master Lord Ling. As Hierarch of the Brotherhood of Truth in the etheric plane over Crete, he assists the scientists and spiritual leaders of the world with the flame of truth and what is called in the Ascended Master Teachings the green ray or emerald ray (the 5th of the Seven Rays). [2] It is believed in the Ascended Master Teachings that before the Master Hilarion took over the chohanship of the Fifth Ray, that Lord Ling fulfilled that function. [10]

The Legend of The Wesak

The Legend of The Wesak

Helpful suggestions for a Wesak Full Moon Ritual.

There is a valley, lying at a rather high altitude in the foothills of the Himalayan-Tibet ranges. It is surrounded by high mountains on all sides except towards the northeast, where there is a narrow opening in the mountain ranges. The valley is bottle-shaped in contour, with the neck of the bottle to the northeast, and it widens very considerably towards the south. Up towards the northern end, close to the neck of the bottle, there a huge flat rock. There are no trees or shrubs in the valley, which is covered with a kind of coarse grass.

Approaching the time of the full moon of Taurus, pilgrims from the surrounding districts begin to gather. The holy men and the lamas find their way into the valley and fill the southern and the middle parts, leaving the northeastern end relatively free. There, so the legend runs, gathers a group of those great Beings Who are the Custodians on Earth of God's Plan for our planet and for humanity.

This group of knowers of divinity are the main participants in The Wesak Festival. They arrange Themselves in the northeastern end of the valley, in concentric circles, and prepare for a great act of service. In front of the rock, looking towards the northeast, stand Those Beings Who are called by Their disciples The Three Great Lords. These are The Christ, Who stands in the center; the Lord of living forms, The Manu, Who stands at His right; and The Lord of Civilization, who stands to His left. These three face the rock upon which rests a great crystal bowl, full of water.

Behind the grouped Masters, adepts, initiates and senior workers under God's Plan are to be found the world disciples and aspirants in their various grades and groups (either "in the body" or "out of the body"), who at this time constitute the New Group of World Servers. Those present in their physical bodies have found their way there by ordinary means. Others are present in their spiritual bodies, and in the dream state. The "dream," which they later relate, has been uniformly registered by people throughout the world, and bears the testimony to the recollection of an inner spiritual happening.

As the hour of the full moon approaches, a stillness settles down upon the crowd, and all look towards the northeast. Certain ritualistic movements take place, in which the grouped Masters and Their disciples of all ranks take up symbolic positions, and form on the floor of the valley such significant symbols as the five-pointed star, with The Christ standing at the highest point; of a triangle, with The Christ at the apex; or a cross, and other well known formations, all of which have a deep and potent meaning. This is all done to the sound of certain chanted words and esoteric phrases, called mantrams.

The expectancy in the waiting, onlooking crowd becomes very great, and the tension is real and increasing. Through the entire body of people there seems to be felt a stimulation or potent vibration which has the effect of awakening the souls of those present, fusing and blending the group into one united whole, and lifting all into a great act of spiritual demand, readiness, and expectancy. It is the climax of the world's aspiration focussed in this waiting group. These three words ~ demand, readiness and expectancy ~ best describe the atmosphere surrounding those present in this secret valley.

The chanting and the rhythmic weaving grows stronger, and all the participants and the watching crowd raise their eyes towards the sky in the direction of the narrow part of the valley. Just a few minutes before the exact time of the full moon, in the far distance, a tiny speck can be seen in the sky. It comes nearer and nearer, and grows in clarity and definiteness of outline, until the form of The Buddha can be seen, seated in the cross-legged Buddha position, clad in his saffron-colored robe, bathed in light and color, and with his hand extended in blessing.

When The Buddha arrives at a point exactly over the great rock, hovering there in the air over the heads of The Three Great Lords, a great mantram, used only once a year, at The Festival, is intoned by The Christ, and the entire group of people in the valley fall upon their faces. This Invocation sets up a great vibration or thought current which is of such potency that it reaches up from the group of aspirants, disciples and initiates who employ it, to the Being we know as God. It marks the supreme moment of intensive spiritual effort throughout the entire year, and the spiritual vitalization of humanity and the spiritual effects last throughout the succeeding months.

The effect of this great Invocation is universal or cosmic, and serves to link us up with that cosmic center of spiritual force from which all created beings have come. The blessing is poured forth, and The Christ, as the representative of humanity, receives it in trust, for distribution.

Thus, so the legend runs, The Buddha returns once a year to bless the world, transmitting renewed spiritual life, through The Christ. Slowly then The Buddha recedes into the distance, until again only a faint speck can be seen in the sky, and this eventually disappears. The whole ceremonial blessing, from the time of the first appearance in the distance until the moment The Buddha fades out of view, takes just eight minutes.

The Buddha's annual sacrifice for humanity (for He comes back only at great cost) is over, and He returns again to that high place where He works and waits. Year after year He comes back in blessing; year after year, He and His great brother, The Christ, work in the closest cooperation for the spiritual benefit of humanity. In these two great Sons of God have been focussed two aspects of divine life, and They act together as Custodians of the highest type of spiritual force to which our humanity can respond. Through The Buddha, the wisdom of God is poured forth. Through The Christ, the love of God is manifested in humanity, and it is this wisdom and love which pour forth upon humanity each Wesak full moon.

When The Buddha has again disappeared, the crowd rise to their feet; the water in the bowl is distributed in tiny portions to the Masters, initiates and disciples, and they then go their way to their place of service. The crowd, who have all brought their little cups and vessels of water, drink of them and share with others. In this beautiful "water ceremony of communion" is portrayed the symbol of the new age which is upon us, the Aquarian Age, the age of the Water Carrier.

In this ceremony is perpetuated for us the story of the universality of God's love, the need for our individual purification, and the opportunity to share with each other that which belongs to all. The water, which has been magnetized by the presence of The Buddha and of The Christ, carries certain properties and virtues of a healing and helpful nature.

Thus blessed, the crowd silently disperses.

Mercury Retrograde,By Rov Tillet

Mercury Retrograde
Mercury retrograde in Taurus [Apr. 18, 2010 – May 11, 2010]At 04:06 UT (Universal Time) Sunday, April 18th, 2010, Mercury the wise communicator—and universal trickster—turns retrograde at 12°37' Taurus, in the sign of the Bull, sending communications, travel, appointments, mail and the www into a general snarlup! The retro period begins some days before the actual turning point (as Mercury slows) and lasts for three weeks or so, until May 11, 2010, when the Winged Messenger reaches his direct station. At this time he halts and begins his return to direct motion through the zodiac.

Everything finally straightens out on May 28, as he passes the point where he first turned retrograde. Mercury normally turns retrograde three times a year, but this year he turns tail four times, which is unusual. The effects of each period differ, according to the sign in which it happens (see box for Retrograde Periods in 2010).

A planet is described as retrograde when it appears to be moving backwards through the zodiac. According to modern science, this traditional concept arises in the illusory planetary motion created by the orbital rotation of the earth with relation to other planets in our solar system. It's a bit like travelling on the road watching another car beside you: when the other car slows down, or you speed up, it looks as though the other car is moving backwards. Planets are never actually retrograde or stationary, they just seem that way due to this cosmic shadow-play. Click here for some neat graphics and more on the science of retrograde planetary motion.

Retrograde periods, although often problematic for us earthlings, are not particularly uncommon. Each planet retrogrades, except the Sun and Moon. Although a powerful astrological influence, Mercury is quite a small planet that travels at a relatively fast speed through the zodiac. Despite being the closest planet in our solar system to the Sun, Mercury is not always in the same sign as the Sun. Mercury turns retrograde this time in Taurus while the Sun is in Aries, but the Sun moves into Taurus on Apr. 20 (with Mercury still in Taurus); however, the Sun enters Gemini on May 21, whilst Mercury, having turned direct, is still gathering speed in Taurus and does not reach his home in Gemini until June 10.

Fated Events
As a rule, retrograde planets mark a period of seemingly inevitable or fated events that relate to their sphere of influence. Unresolved issues from the past tend to rear their heads. Retro phases present us with a series of events over which we seem to have little or no conscious control, relating especially to the sign in which the retrogradation occurs. For example, Mercury retrograde in Libra (relationships; tastes; harmony) awakened quite different sets of circumstances from those generated when he retrograded into Virgo (analysis; critical ability).

A retrograde period is best seen as a cycle, beginning when a planet begins to slow to a halt before travelling backwards through the zodiac, and ending when it returns to the point where it first paused. However, during the cycle, a planet's energy is most powerful (and more likely to generate critical events of universal importance) when the planet makes a station: appearing motionless in the sky.

These stationary periods occur near the beginning of the cycle (when the planet first halts as it prepares to move backwards) and midway through the cycle when the retrograde planet slows to a stop before moving forward again. The direct station (when the planet halts before moving forward again) is the most powerful and can be used for maximum benefit.

Mercury Shadow Phases
Many astrologers consider that the "Mercury Shadow" begins between two and three weeks before the actual retro station; so the "shadow phase" begins on April 4, when Mercury passes the point of direct station for the first time in this cycle. This view has some justification, but I am more inclined to think that the really noticeable peculiarities begin when Mercury slows significantly, a few days before the retro station.

This period of "Mercury Shadow" extends to the Return date, something under three weeks after the direct station. Bear this in mind, because experience shows that the effects of the retro period are still marked during the shadow phase. Some of the most characteristic annoyances often occur just after Mercury makes the direct station, while he is crawling forward before picking up speed.

What does Mercury affect?
In general, Mercury rules thinking and perception, processing and disseminating information and all means of communication, commerce, education and transportation. By extension, Mercury rules people who work in these areas, especially those who work with their minds or their wits: writers and orators, commentators and critics, gossips and spin doctors, teachers, travellers, tricksters and thieves.

Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misunderstandings; flawed, disrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some crucial piece of information, or component, has gone astray or awry.

It is not exactly wise to make important decisions while Mercury is retrograde, since it is likely that such decisions will be clouded by misinformation, poor communication and careless thinking. Mercury is all about mental clarity and the power of the mind, so when Mercury is retrograde these intellectual characteristics tend to be less acute than usual, as the critical faculties are dimmed. Make sure you pay attention to the small print!

The Key Issue
The key issue here is one of focus. Mercury's retro phase tends to bring unforeseen changes and blockages, but the aggravation and frustration that many of us experience during these periods is often due to our own inability to roll with the punches. Is this due to our ego-fixation?

Mercury sets out to restructure our thinking processes and for many of us this is painful and frustrating. Unresolved issues from the past tend to push themselves forward. Moreover, these experiences reveal flaws in our internal organisation as well as our external planning, which can make us feel foolish and inadequate.

Mercury retrograde, like any cosmic aspect, affects people differently, depending on where it hits their personal charts. Some people actually prosper under a retro Mercury, especially if Mercury is retrograde but otherwise well-aspected in their birth charts. For example, I have heard of some who excel in the way they play roulette under a retrograde Mercury! It is also a time when matters begun under a previous retro period will come to fruition, or completion as the case may be. Firm decisions that have been previously made when Mercury is travelling normally through the zodiac may be implemented or finalised while Mercury is retrograde without too much worry, for experience shows that this can be done without undue problems arising.

When Mercury is retrograde, everyone's thinking is more introspective; we tend to think about issues and concerns that relate to the sign involved. With Mercury retrograde in Taurus, people with this sign prominent in their charts will be especially prone to such introspection. Taurus is a Fixed Sign, so the other Fixed Signs, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will also receive a touch of the lash!

Mercury turns retro on April 18 at 12°37' Taurus, amidst a welter of planetary aspects, the most notable being the stressful square to Mars, which is certainly aggravating and has been since April 4. This aspect will be particularly strong on the 25th and 26th of April, when trying to get things done is frustrating. Incorrect information or directions may cause you to be too early, or too late. The wretched car may break down, or transportation delays trash your travel schedule. Buying a car or other equipment may be beset by snags. Others may say things, or use methods that provoke you. Avoid rash behaviour; make sure you understand any information you receive. No matter what the headaches, you still make measurable progress. You are likely to be more competitive or aggressive, which can help you accomplish more. Protect yourself against airborne colds and fever and take extra precautions when handling electrical equipment and volatile materials.

One aspect on this day tending to moderate the difficulties is a nice sextile between the two benefics, Venus and Jupiter. Venus is in her own sign, Taurus, which is generally favourable, especially as Mercury is there too, and Jupiter is in his own sign, Pisces, so the benefits of the aspect are strengthened. It brings social opportunities, especially in the arts, theatre and publishing. It might bring some good luck, but the impending square from the Moon to Jupiter later in the day suggests that the good fortune it brings may be rather overstated, seeming better than it really is. Still, if you are careful and act quickly, you might strike it lucky. I should point out that Venus rules Mercury during this phase, so matters connected with fashion, money, greed, feasting, love, sex and sensuality will be the flavour of the month. This said, and notwithstanding the nice aspect to Jupiter, Venus is conjunct the decidedly malefic fixed star, Caput Algol, the Gorgon's Head. The conjunction reaches full force on April 22, so expect a wild time. This unfortunate star is a pulsing binary, known for its passionate, intense and even hysterical tendencies. Always a signal that there's something deeper at work. Female sexuality runs rampant (not so bad, says JJ, my 14 year old son!) and it is also associated with extreme creativity, an expression of the Dark Side...

However, as Venus is applying to the auspicious trine aspect to Saturn (which has just retrograded back across the border into Virgo) it marks a good time to work towards long-term success, and to form substantial, long-lasting relationships based on mutual commitment and respect. The power of womankind, thanks to Algol, is magnified and yet stabilised (I hope). This aspect is at its peak on the 24th and 25th of April, so it is surrounded by quite a bit of noise and martial clamour, thanks to the Mercury/Mars square the same weekend. This reinforces the need to tread warily and be sure to pay attention to the details.

Since we are talking of Saturn, the Grim Reaper, we need to pay attention to the opposition between Saturn and Jupiter, which is stimulated during this phase and magnified by Saturn's unfortunate opposition to Uranus. Jupiter is applying to the conjunction with Uranus in Pisces, which is active during this phase, but actually hits harder during the latter half of the year (see my article on Jupiter's Transit through Pisces). Jupiter and Saturn are known to astrologers as the Great Chronocrators, or Time Lords, and their interaction marks big changes in society and in personal lives. The presence of Uranus suggests that even greater societal developments will be stimulated by this opposition, with unfortunate legislation and the collapse of structures, as indeed we have seen in recent times. These will come forward again with a vengeance as Saturn makes his final pass through Virgo over the coming months. Responsibilities, restrictions, rules and regulations wil be in direct conflict with freedom, and this situation is apt to be a key factor in blocking your progress, happiness, success, or whatever else you are after, especially if you were born in the years 1949, 1950 and 1951 or in 1978, 1979, or 1980. Resist the promise of something new and hang on to what you have, at least for the time being. It is important to realize that you will probably not be able to remove the forces that oppose you, which only leaves the option of finding a constructive way to work around them, or with them.

Mercury turns retrograde conjunct the Fixed Star Achird, a binary star, orange and violet, in the girdle of Cassiopeia, the Ethiopean Queen, the mother of Andromeda. She is said to have boasted that not only Andromeda but she herself was fairer than the Nereids, and for that reason she was bound to her chair and condemned to circle the pole head downwards as a lesson in humility. According to Ptolemy, this constellation is of the nature of Saturn and Venus. It is said to give haughtiness, boastfulness and exaggerated pride, but at the same time the power of commanding respect. It is associated by the Kabalists with the Hebrew letter Beth and the 2nd Tarot Trump, The High Priestess.

Mercury retro in Taurus, a Venus-ruled sign, is sometimes indicative of stuttering, hoarseness and other vocal disorders, as you would expect. However, symptoms of deafness; asthma and bronchitis; foot pains; arrhythmia; muscle tics and tremors can also arise. Taurus is practical and determined, pleasant, fond of the opposite sex, music, art and all intellectual and refined amusements, and Mercury here does not usually jump to conclusions or easily accept new ideas. The mind is slow to reason, but once a conclusion is reached, does not easily change; hence the retro phase can see stubborn errors with long-term consequences. Stick to practical applications, as flights of imagination are not well-favoured.

The obstinacy and stubbornness of the Bull are marked characteristics of this phase, and apply particularly to communication, travel, sales, academia and all mental pursuits. A strong desire for money, possessions and a fixed income may divert our attention from what is really happening. This position can indicate hoarseness and laryngitis from nervousness and talking for too long. Drink adequate amounts of water to offset hoarseness and proneness to asthma and bronchitis. Apple juice, buckwheat, oats and wheatgrass juice may offset the negatives somewhat (no, not necessarily all mixed together..!).

Mercury turns direct at 2° Taurus 41' on May 11th, conjunct the Fixed Star Sharatan, a violent star in the Ram's Horn. This star stimulates aggressive behaviour, yet was known by the ancient Persians as a protector—but probably the kind of protection we could do without (example: Blackwater, the massive private army still under other names providing "security" in Iraq).

Other fixed stars in Taurus are activated too, by the Mercury and Venus passage through Taurus and by the square from Mars. These are likely to see escalation in military conflict, especially by the West against Muslim forces—and probably not to the benefit of the Muslims. Let us hope that the fixed ideas threatened by Mercury retro in Taurus do not become so entrenched that they extend the conflicts and generate more useless loss of life.

All areas of communication are affected by this phase, especially in matters connected with security, structured thinking, the exposition of traditional ideas and conservative methods; women's rights and obligations and their role in society; sensual delights, displays of wealth, sexual pleasures and communications connected with such matters. This period brings travel snafus, mail mishaps and missed appointments of all kinds. Documents can go astray. Be sure to carry a diary and refer to it often.

Sankaracharya's Works

Sankaracharya's Works

Biography of Sri Adi SankaraIntroductionChaos pervaded all through India in the matter of religion and philosophy. Sect after sect, such as Charvakas, Lokayathikas, Kapalikas, Shaktas, Sankhyas, Buddhas and Madhyamikas sprang up. The number of religions rose as high as seventy-two. There was fight amongst sects. There was no peace anywhere. Chaos and confusion reigned supreme. There was superstition and bigotry. Darkness prevailed over the once happy land of Rishis, sages and Yogins. The once glorious land of the Aryans was in a miserable state. Such was the state of the country at the time which just preceded the Avatara (incarnation) of Sankaracharya.

The existence of Vedic Dharma in India today is due to Sankara. The forces opposed to Vedic religion were more numerous and powerful at the time of Sankara than they are today. Still, single-handed, within a very short time, Sankara overpowered them all and restored the Vedic Dharrna and Advaita Vedanta to its pristine purity in the land. The weapon he used was pure knowledge and spirituality. The previous Avataras, like Rama and Krishna, used physical forces because the obstacles to Dharma in those days arose from the physical obstructions and molestations of the Asuras (demons). The menace to Dharma in the Kali age (age of destruction) arose from obstacles that were more internal than external, more mental than physical. The seeds of Adharma (unrighteousness) were then working in the minds of almost everyone. Hence the evil had to be combated purely by the weapon of knowledge and self-purification. It was in order to forge this weapon and wield it with efficacy that Sankara took birth in the Brahmin Varna (caste) and entered the Sannyasa (renunciate) order early in life. The previous Avataras like Rama and Krishna took birth in the Kshatriya Varna (warrior caste), because in their days they had to wield military weapons in the restoration of Dharma.

All are no doubt aware of the very important position assigned to Sankaracharya in the history of Indian philosophy. It can be affirmed, without any fear of contradiction, that Bharata Varsha would have ceased to be Bharata Varsha several centuries ago and would never have survived the murderous sword, the devastating fire and the religious intolerance of the successive invaders, if Sankara had not lived the life he lived and taught the lessons he taught. And those lessons are still pulsating in every cell and in every protoplasm of the true aspirant and the true Hindu.

BirthSankara was born in a very poor family in the year 788 A.D. in a village named Kaladi, six miles to the east of Alwaye, Kerala. Kaladi is a railway station, on the Kochi-Shoranur rail link. Sankara was a Nambudiri Brahmin. Rajasekhara, a Zamindar (a rich landlord), built a Siva temple in Kaladi and formed an Agrahara for Brahmins who were in the service of the temple. Vidyadhiraja was doing Puja (worship) in the temple. He had only a son named Sivaguru. Sivaguru studied the Shastras and married at the proper age. He had no child. He and his wife Aryamba prayed to Lord Siva to bless them with a son. A son was born to them in the Vasanta Ritu or the spring season at noon, in the auspicious Abhijit Muhurta and under the constellation Ardhra. This son was Sankara.

Sivaguru died when Sankara was seven years old. Sankara had none to look after his education. His mother was an extraordinary woman. She took special care to educate her son in all the Shastras. Sankara's Upanayana or thread ceremony was performed in his seventh year, after the death of his father. Sankara exhibited extraordinary intelligence in his boyhood. When he was only sixteen, he became a master of all the philosophies and theologies. He began to write commentaries on the Gita, the Upanishads and the Brahma Sutras when he was only sixteen years old. What a great marvel!

Sankara's mother was consulting astrologers about horoscopes of suitable girls for her son's marriage. But Sankara had a firm resolve to renounce the world and become a Sannyasin. Sankara's mother was very much grieved that there would be no one to perform her funeral rites after her death. Sankara gave full assurance to his mother that he would always be ready to serve her at the death-bed and perform the usual funeral rites. Even then his mother was not satisfied.

One day, Sankara and his mother went to take bath in the river. Sankara plunged into the water and felt that a crocodile was dragging him by the foot. He shouted out to his mother at the top of his voice: "O dear mother! A crocodile is dragging me down. I am lost. Let me die peacefully as a Sannyasin. Let me have the satisfaction of dying as a Sannyasin. Give me your permission now. Let me take Apath-sannyasa”.

The mother immediately allowed him to take Sannyasa. Sankara took Apath-sannyasa (the adoption of Sannyasa when death is near) at once. The crocodile let him go unharmed. Sankara came out of the water as a nominal Sannyasin. He again repeated his promise to his mother. He left her under the care of his relatives and gave away his little property to them. He then proceeded to find out a Guru with a view to get himself formally initiated into the sacred order of Sannyasa.

In Search of a GuruSankara met Swami Govindapada Acharya in a hermitage in Badrikashram (Badrinath) in the Himalayas and he prostrated at the teacher's feet. Govinda asked Sankara who he was. Sankara replied: "O revered Guru! I am neither fire nor air nor earth nor water-none of these, but the Immortal Atma (Self) that is hidden in all names and forms". He also said in the end: "I am the son of Sivaguru, a Brahmin of Kerala. My father died in my childhood. I was brought up by my mother. I have studied the Vedas and the Shastras under a teacher. I took Apath-sannyasa when a crocodile caught my foot while I was taking bath in the river. Kindly initiate me formally into the holy order of Sannyasa".

Swami Govinda was very much pleased with the truthful narration given by Sankara. Having initiated him and invested him with the robe of a Sannyasin, Swami Govinda taught him the philosophy of Advaita which he himself had learnt from his Guru-Gaudapada Acharya. Sankara learnt all the philosophical tenets from his Guru Govindapada. Govinda asked Sankara to go to Kashi. Sankara proceeded to Kashi where he wrote all his famous commentaries on the Brahma Sutras, the Upanishads and the Gita and successfully met all the criticisms levelled against them. He then began to propagate his philosophy. Sankara had the greatest esteem for his Guru Govindapada and his Parama Guru or the teacher's teacher, Gaudapada.

Sankara's DigvijayaSankara's philosophical conquests are unique in the world. He had his triumphant tour all over India. He met the leaders of different schools of thought. He convinced them by arguments and established the supremacy and truth of the religion that he expounded in his commentaries. He went to all the celebrated seats of learning. He challenged the learned men to discussion, argued with them and converted them to his opinions and views. He defeated Bhatta Bhaskara and condemned his Bhashya (commentary) on the Vedanta Sutras. He then met Dandi and Mayura and taught them his philosophy. He then defeated in argument Harsha, author of Khandana Khanda Kadya, Abhinavagupta, Murari Misra, Udayanacharya, Dharmagupta, Kumarila and Prabhakara.

Sankara then proceeded to Mahishmati. Mandana Misra was the chief Pundit of the court of Mahishmati. Mandana was brought up in the Karma Mimamsa faith and so he had intense hatred for the Sannyasins. He was performing a Sraaddha ceremony when Sankara somehow dropped down there. Immediately Mandana Misra became very furious. An ugly conversation was started when the Brahmins, who were present there for dinner, interposed and pacified Mandana Misra. Then Sankara challenged Mandana to a religious controversy. Mandana agreed. Bharati who was the wife of Mandana Misra and who possessed scholarly erudition was appointed as the umpire. It was agreed beforehand that Sankara, if defeated, would become a householder and marry; and that Mandana, if defeated, would become a Sannyasin and receive the robe of a Sannyasin from the hands of his own wife. The controversy began in right earnest and continued for days without any interruption. Bharati did not sit and listen to their controversy. She threw two garlands, one each over the shoulders of each of the disputants, and said: "He whose garland begins to fade first should consider himself defeated". She left the place and began attending to her household duties. The controversy went on for seventeen days. The garland of Mandana Misra began to fade first. Mandana Misra accepted his defeat and offered to become a Sannyasin and follow Sankara.

Bharati was an Avatara of Sarasvati, the Goddess of Learning. Once the sage Durvasa chanted the Vedas before Brahma and his wife in a big assembly. Durvasa committed a small mistake. Sarasvati laughed at it. Durvasa became enraged and gave a curse that she would take birth in the world. Hence Sarasvati had to take birth as Bharati.

Bharati now interposed and said to Sankara: "I am the other half of Mandana. You have defeated only one half of Mandana. Let us have a controversy". Sankara objected to have controversy with a woman. Bharati quoted instances wherein there had been controversies with women. Sankara then agreed and this controversy also went on uninterruptedly for seventeen days. Bharati passed from one Shastra to another. At last she found out that she could not defeat Sankara. She decided to defeat him by means of the science of Kama Shastra.

Sankara asked Bharati to give him an interval of one month for his preparation to hold controversy with her in the science of Kama Shastra. She agreed. Sankara went to Kashi. He separated his astral body from his physical body by means of his Yogic powers and left his physical body in the hole of a big tree and asked his disciples to take care of that physical body. He then entered into the dead body of Raja Amaruka which was about to be cremated. The Raja rose up and all the people rejoiced at the astounding incident.

The ministers and queens soon found out that the revived Raja was a different person, with different qualities and thought. They realised that the soul of a great Mahatma had entered the body of their Raja. Therefore, messengers were sent out to search for a human body hidden somewhere in lonely forests and caves and to burn it when found. They thought that if they did so, the new Raja might remain with them for a long time.

Sankara was acquiring all the experience of love with his queens. Maya is very powerful. In the midst, of those queens, Sankara entirely forgot all about his promises to his disciples about his going back to them. The disciples began to search for him. They heard about the miraculous resurrection of Raja Amaruka. They immediately proceeded to the city and had an interview with the Raja. They sang a few philosophical songs which at once revived the memory of Sankara. The disciples immediately repaired to the place where the physical body of Sankara was kept hidden. By that time the messengers of the queen had found out the physical body and had just begun to set fire to it. The soul of Sankara just then entered his own body. Sankara prayed to Lord Hari to help him. There was a shower of rain immediately and that extinguished the flames.

Then Sankara returned to the residence of Mandana Misra. He resumed the old controversy and answered all the questions raised by Bharati satisfactorily. Mandana Misra gave all his property as a gift to Sri Sankara and Mandana was made to distribute it to the poor and the deserving. He then became a disciple of Sankara. Sankara initiated him into the holy order of Sannyasa and gave him the name of 'Sureswara Acharya'. Sureswara Acharya was the first Sannyasin who took charge of the Sringeri Mutt. Bharati also accompanied Sankara to Sringeri and there she is worshipped even today.

Sankara ascended the seat of omniscience after inviting Vedic scholars from all parts of India and answering their numerous questions. Sankara, by vanquishing all the religious opponents of his day-and they belonged to no less than seventy-two different schools-and establishing the superiority of the Vedic Dharma, had become the Jagadguru of all.

Sankara's success over the other religious sects was so complete that none of them have since been able to raise their head in the land. Most of them have disappeared altogether. After Sankara's time, although a few Acharyas have appeared, none of them have been able to vanquish those who differed from them as Sankara did and establish unquestioned supremacy.

Mother’s Funeral RitesSankara received news that his mother was seriously ailing. He left his disciples and proceeded to Kaladi alone. His mother was then bedridden. Sankara touched her feet in reverence. He praised Lord Hari. Hari’s messengers came. Sankara's mother gave up her physical body and went along with those messengers to the abode of Hari.

Sankara encountered serious difficulties in performing the funeral rites of his mother. Usually, Sannyasins do not perform any of the rites or ceremonies which are enjoined on the householders. The Nambudiri Brahmins were all against Sankara. Sankara's relatives also did not help him. They did not come forward to assist him even in carrying the dead body to the place of cremation and refused to give fire for igniting the funeral pyre. At last Sankara determined to perform the funeral rites all alone. As he could not carry the entire dead body, he cut it into pieces and removed the pieces one by one to the backyard of the house. He then made a pyre there of stems of plantain trees and set fire to it by his Yogic power. Sankara wanted to teach the Nambudiris a lesson. He then made the local chief issue an edict that a corner should be set apart in each Illam or house of the Nambudiri Brahmins to burn the dead of the family and that they should cut the dead body into parts and then burn the same. This practice continues even today amongst Nambudiri Brahmins.

Sankara then returned to Sringeri. From there he went out on a tour through the eastern coast with a large number of followers. He preached his Advaita philosphy wherever he went. He established the Govardhana Mutt at Puri. He went to Kancheepuram and attacked the Shaktas. He purified the temples. He won over to his side the rulers of the Chola and the Pandya kingdoms. He went to Ujjain and put down the atrocities of the Bhairavas who were shedding human blood. He then proceeded to Dwaraka and established a Mutt there. He then travelled along the course of the Ganges and held religious controversies with great personages.

Sankara's EndSankara proceeded to Kamarup-the present Guwahati-in Assam and held a controversy with Abhinava Gupta, the Shakta commentator, and won victory over him. Abhinava felt his defeat very keenly. He made Sankara suffer from a severe form of piles through black magic. Padmapada removed the evil effects of the black magic. Sankara became quite alright. He went to the Himalayas, built a Mutt at Joshi and a temple at Badri. He then proceeded to Kedarnath higher up in the Himalayas. He became one with the Linga in 820 A.D. in his thirty-second year.

Sringeri MuttIn the north-west of the State of Mysore, nestling in the beautiful foot-hills of the Western Ghats, surrounded by virgin forests, lies the village of Sringeri and here Sankara established his first Mutt. The river Tunga-a branch of the river Tungabhadra-runs through the valley closely touching the walls of the temple; and its pure and limpid waters are as famous for drinking purposes as the waters of the Ganges are for bath (Ganga Snanam, Tunga Panam). Sringeri is a place of great sanctity and its beauty has to be seen to be appreciated. The Mutt is 'still going strong' as the phrase goes. The homage paid to the Mutt by countless aspirants and devotees is as much due to the greatness of illustrious men like Vidyaranya who have been at its head ever since its foundation as to the renown of the founder himself.

It may not be out of place to mention here that it took thirty years for the well-known Sanskrit professor Max Muller to translate the commentary on the Rig Veda, written by Vidyaranya, also known as Sayana. The learned professor, in his preface, says that not a single day passed in the thirty years without his devoting at least ten minutes on the translation. There is also a little interesting incident that when the manuscript was found to be illegible in some places, he got an authorised transcription from the first original still preserved in the Sringeri Mutt, through the influence of the then Maharaja of Mysore.

The famous holy shrine of Sri Sarada is an equal source of attraction to the devotees. Many are the Mutts and monasteries in India where holy men or their successors sit, and where Hindus from all parts of India gather, but none so great or so famous as Sringeri, the original seat of Adi Sankaracharya. The Sringeri Peetha is one of the oldest monasteries of the world flourishing for over twelve centuries now. It is the first of the four seats of learning established by Sankaracharya, the other three being Puri, Dwaraka and Joshi Mutt, each one of them representing one of the four Vedas of the Hindus.

Sankara placed his four eminent disciples (Sureswara Acharya, Padmapada, Hastamalaka and Trotakacharya) in charge of the Sringeri Mutt, Jagannath Mutt, Dwaraka Mutt and Joshi Mutt respectively. The most famous Sannyasin in the succession of Gurus of the Sringeri Mutt was, of course, Vidyaranya, the great commentator on the Vedas and the father of the dynasty of Vijayanagar. He was the Dewan of Vijayanagaram. He became a Sannyasin about 1331 A.D. The eleven Sannyasins before Vidyaranya were Sankaracharya, Viswarupa, Nityabodhaghana, Jnanaghana, Jnanottama, Jnana Giri, Simha Girisvara, Isvara Tirtha, Narasimha Tirtha, Vidya Sankara Tirtha and Bharati Krishna Tirtha.

The historic and sacred pontifical throne of the Sringeri Mutt is known as Vyakhyana Simhasana or seat of learning. Tradition has it that this seat was given to the great Sankara by Sarasvati, the Goddess of Learning, in appreciation of the philosopher's vast scholarly erudition. Thirty-five Acharyas had sat on the pontifical throne before his present holiness in regular and uninterrupted succession.

Dasanami SannyasinsSankara organized ten definite orders of Sannyasins under the name 'Dasanamis' who add, at the end of their names, any one of the following ten suffixes: Sarasvati, Bharati, Puri (Sringeri Mutt); Tirtha, Asrama (Dwaraka Mutt); Giri, Parvata and Sagar (Joshi Mutt); Vana and Aranya (Govardhana Mutt).

The Paramahamsa represents the highest of these grades. It is possible to become a Paramahamsa by a long course of Vedantic study, meditation and Self- realisation. The Ativarnashramis are beyond caste and order of life. They dine with all classes of people. Sankara's Sannyasins are to be found all over India.

Some AnecdotesSankara was going along the street one day with his pupils to take bath in the Ganges when he met a Chandala who was also passing along the street with his dogs by his side. The disciples of Sankara shouted and asked the Chandala to clear off the road. The Chandala asked Sankara: "O, venerable Guru! You are a preacher of Advaita Vedanta and yet you make a great difference between man and man. How can this be consistent with your teaching of Advaitism? Is Advaita only a theory?". Sankara was very much struck by the intelligent query of the Chandala. He thought within himself, "Lord Siva has assumed this form just to teach me a lesson". He composed then and there five Slokas called the ‘Manisha Panchaka’. Every Sloka ends thus: “He who learnt to look on the phenomena in the light of Advaita is my true Guru, be he a Chandala or be he a Brahmin”.

In Kashi, a student was cramming the Sutras in Sanskrit grammar. He was repeating again and again "Dukrin karane, Dukrin karane....". Sankara heard it and was struck by the perseverance of the boy. He immediately sang a small poem, the famous Bhaja Govindam song, in order to teach the uselessness of such studies in the matter of the liberation of the soul. The meaning of the song is: "Worship Govinda, worship Govinda, worship Govinda, O fool! When you are about to die, the repetition of these Sanskrit Sutras will not save you".

Once some mischief-mongers offered meat and liquor to Sankara. Sankara touched those items with his right hand. The meat turned into apples and the liquor into milk.

A Kapalika came to Sankara and begged for his head as a gift. Sankara consented and asked the Kapalika to take his head when he was alone and absorbed in meditation. The Kapalika was just aiming with a big sword to sever the head of Sankara. Padmapada, the devoted disciple of Sankara came, caught hold of the arm of the Kapalika and killed him with his knife. Padmapada was a worshipper of Lord Narasimha. Lord Narasimha entered the body of Padmapada and killed the Kapalika.

Sankara's PhilosophySankara wrote Bhashyas or commentaries on the Brahma Sutras, the Upanishads and the Gita. The Bhashya on the Brahma Sutras is called Sareerik Bhasya. Sankara wrote commentaries on Sanat Sujatiya and Sahasranama Adhyaya. It is usually said, “For learning logic and metaphysics, go to Sankara's commentaries; for gaining practical knowledge, which unfolds and strengthens devotion, go to his works such as Viveka Chudamani, Atma Bodha, Aparoksha Anubhuti, Ananda Lahari, Atma-Anatma Viveka, Drik-Drishya Viveka and Upadesa Sahasri”. Sankara wrote innumerable original works in verses which are matchless in sweetness, melody and thought.

Sankara’s supreme Brahman is Nirguna (without the Gunas), Nirakara (formless), Nirvisesha (without attributes) and Akarta (non-agent). He is above all needs and desires. Sankara says, "This Atman is self-evident. This Atman or Self is not established by proofs of the existence of the Self. It is not possible to deny this Atman, for it is the very essence of he who denies it. The Atman is the basis of all kinds of knowledge. The Self is within, the Self is without, the Self is before and the Self is behind. The Self is on the right hand, the Self is on the left, the Self is above and the Self is below".

Satyam-Jnanam-Anantam-Anandam are not separate attributes. They form the very essence of Brahman. Brahman cannot be described, because description implies distinction. Brahman cannot be distinguished from any other than He.

The objective world-the world of names and forms-has no independent existence. The Atman alone has real existence. The world is only Vyavaharika or phenomenal.

Sankara was the exponent of the Kevala Advaita philosophy. His teachings can be summed up in the following words:

Brahma Satyam Jagat Mithya, Jeevo Brahmaiva Na Aparah

Brahman alone is real, this world is unreal; the Jiva is identical with Brahman.

Sankara preached Vivarta Vada. Just as the snake is superimposed on the rope, this world and this body are superimposed on Brahman or the Supreme Self. If you get a knowledge of the rope, the illusion of the snake will vanish. Even so, if you get a knowledge of Brahman, the illusion of the body and the world will vanish.

Sankara is the foremost among the master-minds and the giant souls which Mother India has produced. He was the expounder of the Advaita philosophy. Sankara was a giant metaphysician, a practical philosopher, an infallible logician, a dynamic personality and a stupendous moral and spiritual force. His grasping and elucidating powers knew no bounds. He was a fully developed Yogi, Jnani and Bhakta. He was a Karma Yogin of no mean order. He was a powerful magnet.

There is not one branch of knowledge which Sankara has left unexplored and which has not received the touch, polish and finish of his superhuman intellect. For Sankara and his works, we have a very high reverence. The loftiness, calmness and firmness of his mind, the impartiality with which he deals with various questions, his clearness of expression-all these make us revere the philosopher more and more. His teachings will continue to live as long as the sun shines.

Sankara's scholarly erudition and his masterly way of exposition of intricate philosophical problems have won the admiration of all the philosophical schools of the world at the present moment. Sankara was an intellectual genius, a profound philosopher, an able propagandist, a matchless preacher, a gifted poet and a great religious reformer. Perhaps, never in the history of any literature, a stupendous writer like him has been found. Even the Western scholars of the present day pay their homage and respects to him. Of all the ancient systems, that of Sankaracharya will be found to be the most congenial and the most easy of acceptance to the modern mind.

Monday Morning First Ray Day Meditation Notes

A Buetiful Blissful Morning Meditation this Morning at "Broken Head Point" .After this morning Dream Interpretation Journaling and Clearing from the Inner Plane I arose at 5:35am after having journeled my Inner Plane experience and having made the adjustments learnt all the lessons they where teaching me and making any requests and prayers for Higher level alignment,ie re focusing on what I want to create as in the 5th ray ideal.After then rising and getting dressed quickly while calling in the energies of the Day of Personal Power and Leadership I attuned my Consciousness 4 Body System and 3 Minds to the Master El Moyra and the 1st Ray Ashram of the Christ.This practice shall continue through out all today.Then Driving in my White Austin 1800 to Broken Head point.Winding up and around the road still attuneing to the Higher aspect of the 1st ray remembering never to give my power to my mind to other people or anything else going on outside self,not to other people I meet along the way but holding my power in my 3 midns and 4 bodies so as to demonstrate the Ascended Masters Ideal to my Self and my Mighty I am Presence but also to my brothers and sisters who also need the ideal to see and be able to learn from that demonstration.I then Ascended towards the top of this point after meeting a sign along the way in a kind smile of a Brother just come up from the beach.The Universe always gives signs when you are on the right track,it also gives you signs when you are on the wrong track!Be on the look out and take action towards getting yourself on the right track in all regards!So after reaching the top I found a few others Sons and Daughters some excersising in "Boot Camp" t Shirts in an early morning attempt to get fit.Some taking photos of the rising sun,and some walking down to the waters edge.I resolved to walk to the Highest Point and sit for Meditation.After going through to the front of the Boot Camo crew I recalled the Egyptian Mysteries and the School of Mastery of the Physical Body which this boot camp is an externalization of.I remembered the Egyptian God Osiris and his Physical Body Mastery and his Earthly demonstration of this through his Imaginal Realm stompings Rompings and wanderings.If only these people would experience DMT I am sure they would learn much more quickly the nature of reality and our place in the Universal Ascension process that we are but a part!So after rounding up these Osiris Initiates and finding my spot on the Head I took a few photos walked along to a quite spot directly in front of the rising sun and sat for Meditation.I set my camera to film for the last hour that was left on it.The video for that sit can be seen at the following link…………..So after sitting I noticed immeditately blissful feelings of peace and a tendency to go inside deeper into this inner cavern of Bliss.I closed my eyes and entered the 1st few stages of Peaces descent.After about 7 minutes here in this state of rest and peaceful experience typified by the alpha brain wave state I opened my eyes to receive the full rays of the Morning sun which had now broken free from behind the clouds.In all its blissful glory the Sun Lord of this World illuminated my Inner and outer Vision giving a Sacred warmth to the Personality Soul and Spirit.I drank this sweet solar nectar in for a Number of minutes until I felt quite satiated with this Radiant emenation,and then I again returned to that Inner Sanctum,where sense finds rest and peace,that place where the dark light of withdrawal brings an unbroken pleasant peace to all the senses.After submerging here a while I descended further into spirit to find past impressions coming to the surface of consciousness.Not engaging them but watching them as an Artist review his work with equanimity making adjustments and learning lessons therein resolving always to do better next time.After allowing this state to pass through the field of consciousness a deeper state of Knowledge came to mind over the days proceedings the the course with which spirit had arranged for me that day.As I watched calmly revealed to me then was all my actions for the day.The term in the Bible that refers to "Ones spirit making a path straight out ahead for you" comes to mind,this was experience to be so!Then after having witnessed this passing of time energy in action,I was able to receive impressions from Higher Dimensional Beings and Higher Christed Entities that where giving me blessings at this time.First seemed to be an Impression of Lord Buddha the New Planetary Logos.He seemed to communicate that this practice and position which he mastered in his life as Gotama the Buddha would be a pose I should adeptly daily 3 times after a brief exercise routine.Here I would find an easy and joyful path to enlightenment illumination knowledge peace vision and attainment.Then a Western Christ appeared within my Antakarana holding one hand in blessing,I identified this being to be my impression of Lord Meitreya the Planetary Christ.He being present in my Aura and Antakarana gave me great gratitude and thanks.I feel the coming together of these 2 Beings is culminating in the festival of Wesak which we are now building to!We are seeing a greater merging of eastern and western paths and both are crossing and cross pollinating each other producing a most glorious Integrated Synthisis which I quite wonderful to behold and even greater to experience directly and externalize as self!Sitting further then through this great peace I continued in silence to observe the empty peace that passeth understanding through my Bodies and Minds.Making subtle adjustments and improvements to my posture and asana as more Spiritual current entered my bodies I was able to perfect my posture more and more till the end of the 1 and a half hour sit I was able to quite comfortably sit in almost perfect Padmasana.From this position I could also take to Pranayama quite efficiently and easily.After feeling the meditation reach its culmination I resolved to continue beyond to experience deeper levels of bliss and saturate myself in this great emptiness.I felt my Mind Soul and Spirit being deeply washed cleansed and cleared and filled with the Omnipotence of the Tao of the Elements in their Raw form.I felt myself merging into the great whole that could be perceived and that which could not be perceived.After entering here for about 40 Minutes I was pulled back to form by the incarnations of form,in others interested observation of my meditation.I then slowly came to and begin rousing the body to re enter the day.After coming there was a fantastic and sacred energy through out my body and mind which gave a great perfection to all sense experience.My Body filled with power I noticed some Dolphins just off shore dancing and playing in the waters.I felt sure that my meditation had called then over and that we where communicating on a Higher Dimensino of reality beyond ordinary perception,or at least I imagined this to be so wished and desired this to be so and there for it shall be and is so,"For as a Man thinketh,so is he!"I then made my way down this Mount to my car for the return drive home to my Office for a Raw Smoothie and to write this brief article before my morning Yoga class at 10!After coming down the hill passing fellow incarnations I noticed a real peace and power in myself that could appreciate othes experience and give joyus acknowledgement to the Universality of Human experience and the one Consciousness that we share.So many different forms all part of and expressions of the whole.All for the Glory of the One!Blessed in Sacred peace I returned home Chanting the Lords name Yod He Va He and Meditating on the Great Perfection of Gods Creation and my part in it!All Glory to God the Most High,creator of all that is,sustainer of all form,destroyer of all old forms and enjoyer of all forms.Blessed be the name of God!

Remaining Clear and Proccessing your Consciousness

BLOG: Dr Stone’s definition of processing and why it is important to learn to process effectively
Processing is a certain type of thinking. There are different types of thinking that people do. There is a type of thinking that comes from the subconscious mind, types that come from the conscious mind and types that come from the Superconscious mind. Processing is a specific type of conscious mind thinking that is for the purpose of Spiritually and psychologically working on oneself to achieve inner peace and/or clarity on any given subject. It is very important to learn to process effectively. Otherwise the mind and emotions will be constantly running and on a roller coaster. As a result you will be in a state of overwhelm, confusion and conflict a great deal of the day. It is of the highest importance to always remain powerful, decisive, loving, clear, in inner peace, joyous and in reasonable even-mindedness and emotional stability. One should strive for this to be one’s natural state of being. Processing is a more serious type of thinking and work to straighten out your consciousness and get it back to its normally centered and clear space.
To learn to Spiritually and psychologically process life properly, please read Dr Joshua David Stone’s Correspondence Course #7, ”How to Develop and Refine your Consciousness and Transcend the Negative Ego/ Fear-Based/ Separative/ Dualistic/ Illusionary/ Selfish/ Lower-Self/ Materialistic Mind and Emotions”.

Public channeling of the Divine Consciousness (mutual channeling by Maria Bertram and Tina von Rein), Jordstrålningscentrum, Stockholm, November 16th

Public channeling of the Divine Consciousness (mutual channeling by Maria Bertram and Tina von Rein), Jordstrålningscentrum, Stockholm, November 16th 2009


This is a mutual channeling that Maria Bertram did together with the medium and author Kristina “Tina” von Rein at Jordstrålningscentrum in Stockholm, November 16th 2009. There was no entrance fee and around 100 people in the audience.

Maria runs the global Mother Earth Network together with Manne Lindberg. More information about the network follows after the channeling. Tina is the author of the book HelAnde Budskap: Välj Moder Jord Nu! (can be translated as: Healing Messages: Choose Mother Earth Now!), released in 2007 only in Swedish, where she channels angels from the eighth dimension. You will find Tina's Swedish website at

During this channeling Maria and Tina united their consciousnesses to take turns in channeling the same source, the Divine Consciousness (God). The angels that Tina channels in her book are bringing forth the messages from the Divine Consciousness when she is channeling (that's why they say "we"). During the channeling, Maria and Tina made an energy transmission - of the cosmic divine white fire - to everyone in the audience. After the channeling Maria and Tina did a healing session for Mother Earth together with the audience.

The headings in the text are added subsequently.

Feel free to spread the channeling through e-mails, forums, websites and blogs!

We are asking you to start listening within to that which is calling for your attention. Within, to the messages that arise from your self, from your own higher self, from your own divine self. We are asking you - do not wait, do not wait, do not wait, start today! Time is short - we do not want to frighten you - but time is short for humanity to begin taking steps, and you are the ones who are ready to take steps, so we are asking you - start today, do not wait!

Maria: All of you that have come here today have come for a specific reason. You have been called to come today. Your higher self has guided you here today, because in some sense you are ready to start taking steps. You are all carrying your own divine wisdom inside, you are all carrying your own highest truth. You already know what you are to do. Listen to your heart, let your heart speak to you. Listen to your intuition. Don't let your rational mind kidnap your entire being. Open up to your own higher divinity, your own inner voice.

Tina: We are so grateful, so grateful, that you have come here today. We are so grateful that there are people who are willing to listen. We are so grateful, so grateful. We can feel that your heart is beating for Mother Earth. We feel your longing to recreate both yourself and another reality than the one we are sharing together today. We are asking you to open your heart even more. We are asking you to follow your own path, your golden spiritual path. We are asking you not to stay on the “path in between,” the path that is in between that which is now and that which shall be. We are asking you to move forward, forward, into the light, into your divine self. We are asking you to open up, open up, open up!.

Maria: All humans, and all of you who are sitting here today, have a life task. You have incarnated on Earth during this important period in humanity's and Mother Earth's history for a certain reason. You have incarnated on the Earth to help humanity and the Earth in this important transition to the New Spiritual Age. You are carrying all the answers inside of you. You all have a specific task to fulfill. You all have special gifts which you can choose to develop, and particular - sometimes very specific - tasks, and many of you already know what they are. You hear the voices, you see all the signs. Start by opening up to these signs and interpret them. Learn to interpret them in your everyday life. Start opening up to your own inner truth. Give yourself a moment of stillness, meditation and also healing, every day - and you will find that you can see that everything is opening up inside of you, and that you already know exactly what it is that you are to do. You are all carrying a treasure inside of you. Don't forget and don't diminish that treasure, but rather take it seriously.

Tina: The future can be both dark and light. Dark - if you as people on the Earth don't do anything and if you continue to destroy the mother that is carrying you. Bright - considering that the powers of light already have won. Bright - because you have the possibility here and now today to open up to your own inner light and begin to shine it out over the Earth. Imagine if all of you who are sitting here would start to shine your light, what a fantastic world it would be. What if the rest of the people would follow your examples, then the Earth couldn't be anything but a bright place to live in. But it is up to you to begin, and you are here to open up to your own inner light, a light that is tremendously greater than that which you can see with your own eyes, even if you can see into other dimensions. Your light is shining from Mother Earth and across expanses far beyond what you can grasp with your mind. You are light, don't forget that, you are light.

Maria: I have created you, but you are also recreating yourselves. You create your own life, you create the world every day. You are divine beings. You have a potential far beyond what you can grasp. You have the possibility to transform the world through your energy bodies, through your inner divine light. Humans can function as channels and can transform the whole Earth, yourselves and each other. The transformation to the New Spiritual Age is ultimately about the union of spirit and matter, and that is what humanity is embodying through its presence.

Tina: You might sit here and wonder, ”But how could I do all of this?” It is important for you to know that you can do it, maybe not today if you are not ready to let go of all of your preconceived ideas and programmed thoughts. But you need not know exactly how it will happen, just let go of your control and open yourself up. Go inside yourself, open up your cells - because that is where your wisdom is stored. No one outside of you will tell you what to do and how to do it, but it is only by searching inside yourself that your wisdom can be awakened and you can be reconnected to the great Divine Consciousness. This is how you will grow, this is how you will know your own wisdom, and this is how you will be the divine beings that you in reality are. It is all about letting go, letting go; letting go of your old thoughts, your old ingrained behavior and your old fears.

Maria: It's about getting rid of all your inner limitations and all negative thoughts and expectations, all thought systems, role patterns, survival strategies, life lies, roles, costumes and uniforms. Human beings are carrying heavy rucksacks of karma, old unresolved emotional and spiritual conflicts from their present and previous lifetimes, both as a member of the collective consciousness and as individuals. Every human on Earth would need to take part in the cleansing of all these limitations - the cleansing of all the fears and the mindset of lack which are limiting humanity today. To break down the walls, the prison walls that people have been building around themselves which are limiting them and keeping them from seeing their limitlessness and their divine potential.

Tina: We're telling you that you can create a paradise on Earth. We are telling you that you can create a world of love. We are telling you that you can start right here and right now. You don't have to wait for all of humanity to begin, you can start right here and right now. Begin inside of yourself, and then with all your near and dear ones, and then together with your like-minded. Start building the paradise within. Start now to build the paradise in all your relationships. Start to look for like-minded people with whom to build small paradises together on Earth , here and now. Don't wait to search for the paradise within, because it is there all the time. It lives and thrives. Look for your own inner paradise and invite others into it.


Maria: Join together with like-minded people and create new alternatives and new ways of living. Dare to take the step! Dare to take the step even if it might feel unknown and insecure - because soon everything will be turned upside down - and that which today seems secure, that which we have known for ages and that which you think is best to hold onto: "I stick to what I know, because that which I don't know and never have tried before could be a risk-taking". But it could be just the opposite, that people who are holding onto the old ways will be facing the biggest risk, and they who dare to take the leap into something new, who dare to take the leap toward community, working together, solidarity - will be the ones who get the opportunity to create a new world with greater safety and greater care for all people, one in which we all are included.

Tina: It won't be easy, though, we are telling you. It's not just about you gathering and saying, “We only want to live in love,” and then expect everything to happen by itself. You will meet a lot of the resistance that dwells inside of you. Resistance that has been built up from all your old programmed thoughts and old habits. You will discover that you have to work to create a loving world. Work in the sense that you will have to go back to your inner selves to see: “What kind of love do I choose, and in what way do I manifest this love to those with whom I will build this community?” It won't be easy, but we will be there to support you during this process, if you just dare to take the first step. Dare, dare, dare to live differently, we are telling you. Dare, dare to take a step into the unknown. Dare, dare, dare to confront your inner resistance in order to really live your inner truest love that doesn't depend on desire or power. But you have to learn to do this, it won't just be easy. You have to learn to experience this, and together with acceptance and forgiveness try to create this world together. By searching for your own inner paradise you will succeed, as long as you stay in your intention and don't give up to your own fears. Dare, dare, dare! Shine, shine, shine! Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse! Give love!

Maria: Take it step by step. Don't think, “Oh, I can never do this, it is too much!" But rather ask yourself where you are standing here and now. "What is the right step for me to take from where I am today?" On one level we all have the same goal, but the path might look slightly different. For every single step you take you are getting closer and the picture will be clearer and you will see the new possibilities opening up. You will evolve, you will open up your abilities, you will open up your consciousness, you will start letting your energy shine, and you will get help in finding the solutions. You will receive help on your way and you will meet the right people that you need to in order to create these possibilities. What you give, you will receive. And all that you need, all that you give will be given back to you. If you work and cleanse your channels and shine out your inner light you will get even more light back. You will draw people to you that also shine with light. You attract love when you send out love. When you think in terms of solutions and development, when you think in the terms of “Yes, this will work, this is possible!”, when you focus on your visions and your path in life, you will also open up the possibility of new paths, new situations, and new people. This is the path to the new age and the paradise. Step by step, in love. Living in love in every thought, in every word, and in every step.

Tina: A lot of people will wake up to their spiritual potential. All of you here today are examples of that. And it will happen fast, it will happen fast, it will happen fast - there are a lot of people who need to be awakened. This means that when you start building these spiritual communities there will be more people to ask for help. That doesn't mean that you will place the responsibility on us. It doesn't mean that you will let yourself be led by something from outside of you, something which is not yourself. But if you get stuck you can ask for our guidance, so that we may give you impulses, so that we can offer our wisdom in order for you to take the next step. Because we are a part of you, because we are a part of your higher self, and therefore we are nothing other than yourselves. We all belong together, we are all one big divine consciousness. We are asking you to dare, dare to take the first step! Don't wait, don't wait! Start by taking small steps. You can start building your communities in your thoughts, even if you haven't started building them in physical form. But start gathering and talk about what you would like, what you would like to manifest so that you gradually, gradually start building a communion between yourselves before you begin to manifest your plans.

Maria: You create your own future through your visualizations, through your manifestations. And when you hold the picture in your hearts and visualize the picture of the new world and your paradise, when you visualize your visions - it is the beginning of creating them. In order for us to create changes in the outer reality we must start with our inner selves. In order to create outer peace we must start by creating peace within ourselves. And it is the same with the visions that we have. Humans have an amazing and unlimited ability to create, an ability that is one with the Divine. Humans can create that which they are visualizing. As soon as people join together and focus on a mutual vision about a new world, we give power and energy to that vision to be created in reality. This is the way a human is and will be one with God. In other words: you create your own reality.

Tina: For those of you sitting here feeling, “But I am not ready yet, am I then doomed?”, we are telling you: no one is doomed. What we give you are thought impulses, what we give you are possible futures. But don't forget that it is you who are creating and shaping your own future. There are always other futures and you can create other alternatives than the ones we talk about now. There are other ways. What you have to do is to search within, to always listen to your own inner compass to find out what is right for you so that you will be guided by yourself and by your own divine consciousness. You won't have to feel like outsiders if you don't choose the visions that we are talking about now. There are alternatives, there are other ways, there is ”either/or.” There are always many paths. But dare, dare to take a step, dare, dare to listen within, dare, dare to be you!

Maria: Have the courage to become one with your own inner truth, whatever that inner truth may be. We have come to give you guidance, but it is you yourself who carries your own inner truth. Then you might wonder: "How will I find this inner truth?" Well, in the silence, in the stillness. That's where the truth is.


Maria: Walk outside in the forest. Listen to the trees, caress the moss with your hands, observe the animals, feel the soul of nature. Open yourself to the way the forest is speaking to you, how it's sending you healing and connecting you to Mother Earth's heart. You are one with Mother Earth. Remember who you are - remember the ancient wisdom that you, all of you, once were part of, and lived in accordance with. Mankind has come to Earth to take care of all living beings on Earth and humanity is one with her. We cannot live without Mother Earth. We need her for our survival. We are one with Mother Earth, and in the same way she is one with us. By worshipping Mother Earth, by sending her healing, by activating her grid points and sacred vortices, by taking care of our mother we help her to evolve and we help her to withstand this enormous pressure she's being subjected to. In that way, by activating her energies, she helps us, because we are all one. There's no division.

Tina: We are asking you to honor life. We are asking you to honor life in all that you eat, honor life in all that you breathe. We are asking you to honor life in yourself. We are asking you to honor your body, we are asking you to honor your thoughts, we are asking you to honor your feelings. We ask you to honor life.

Maria: We humans have come to Earth to take care of Mother Earth, we are her guardians. It is a part of all humans' life tasks to take care of Mother Earth and worship her, to perform ceremonies and to activate her energies, and to become one with her energy body. We have forgotten this ancient wisdom. This has been a very important part of mankind's life during long periods of time, but because of the entrance of the religions this has in many aspects disappeared along the road, has been forgotten and suppressed. It is time now for mankind to reclaim this wisdom; it is a must for humanity's survival. Earth can't live together with humans if the humans are not helping her to activate her energies and expand her energy body. Today she's being subjected to way too great a pressure, mainly because of mankind's ravages on Earth, but also because of the powerful energies coming from cosmos. All this will have an effect on Earth, subject her to an enormous strain and make it harder and harder for her to stand against this enormous pressure.

We humans must help her through healing, through activating her grid points and sacred vortices, through working with the energies that exist inside the Earth. All the ancient wisdom that the old wise women, medicine men and shamans have carried with them from generation to generation, but which has in many aspects been forgotten. Let the ancient wisdom be resurrected, because we are not only entering the New Spiritual Age, we are also entering the Age of the Goddess, where we once again must activate the divine female fertility energy that exists inside the Earth. We need it to heal the Earth, we need it to heal each other. We need it to heal ourselves, to heal all this sorrow, all this fear and all inner limitations and worries that we carry inside us.

Tina: We are asking you to love nature. Not just that you walk outside in nature and love being there, but that you truly create a love relationship with nature, like when you love a child or a partner. We are asking you to go out and create a connection with the mountains, the rocks, so that you communicate with them by sending them love and that you feel that they are sending love back to you. We are asking you to walk outside and feel the messages of the wind to you. We are asking you to receive the flower's beauty and love for you, to feel their love when they send it to you, and we are asking you to send love back to them. We are asking you to go out in nature and make love, because this energy also gives fertility back to Mother Earth. We are asking you to love your own bodies as a part of nature, to love your own bodies beyond what you are used to now. We are asking you to love your cells, to love your skin, to love your organs, to love your feet, to love your hair, to love all that you have been given as a gift.


Maria: You are all searching for unconditional love, and you should know that it is there inside of you. You all are unconditionally loved for who you are. You are amazing beings and you can open up your inner gate to the channel to experience and grow in this unconditional love. You can become one with it forever. We are giving each and every one of you a key. Take the key from my hand and unlock the gate to your inner flame, to your own unconditional love. Open the gate and let it flow and become one with unconditional love. Become one with the endless being. Reconcile with your inner pain. Reconcile with all that has happened. Heal your inner child, heal your inner pain, your sorrow and your sense of loss. Anything can be healed. There's enough love to heal all the pain in the world and the divine light can come to help you, to help you heal your inner sorrow. Open yourself up, dare to take the step and dare to feel the pain. Dare to let it come up to the surface, so that it will finally dissolve into atoms. Release yourself from your emotional cages and be free. Learn to stand up, lift off and fly away like beautiful white birds.


Tina: We want to speak to you about the relationship between man and woman. The Goddess' return to Earth means that this relationship needs to be healed. As long as the God has ruled, the God that you have portrayed as cold, hard and punishing, there cannot be balance. We ask you to take a close look at your relationships between man and woman. Look at what kind of walls have been built up. In your most intimate relationships, where love should stream most freely, it often does not happen. Instead walls of defense and protection are built up. You live side by side as man and wife but are still not close, still not undressed, still not naked, not even when you make love. We are asking you to open up to and look closely at the conception of what “man” is and what “woman" is, and to change these conceptions so that you can be whole, so that you dare to stand without defenses and walls. Because then this love will start streaming between you like it has never streamed before.

This does not mean that we are recommending a certain sexual orientation. When we are talking about the relationship between man and woman, we are talking about the image that you have been affected by during the thousands of years that your culture has existed. This image is repeated even though you love and live in a relationship with someone of the same sex as you, you are still projecting these images onto each other. Therefore, when we talk about these images we mean these relationships that have been characterized by a male and a female behavior. But we wish you to dare to open up and dare to be naked, so naked with each other that you will no longer have to stand in the images that you have been influenced by. We wish that you instead will dare to be much bigger and that you will dare to grow beyond your preconception of your smallness and that you will dare to grow in your divine identity to meet both your god and your goddess inside of yourself. In joining these inside of you and between you, love and sexuality will awaken your memories from your past lives, from all existences. So even in these relationships you will grow spiritually. We ask you not to stop, even though it may feel as if you are about to explode and fall apart because you don't know who you are. We are asking you to move further to discover, discover, discover! This is a path to spiritual enlightenment that we ask you not to diminish. We are asking you to dare, dare, dare! Dare to be naked, dare to be close, dare to be without walls, defense and protection, and dare to grow, dare to grow!


Maria: We would like to ask you to stop running away from your inner pain. Humanity has very much a programmed behavior, where it runs away from everything that means hard work and pain. We would like to ask you to do the opposite: Stop suppressing your pain! Have the courage to let it come up to the surface. Feel it. Dare to look it right in the face because that's the only way to make it disappear, by love and healing. It is the only way. When you push away your feelings and stay within your walls - you keep and preserve the pain, the blockages and the inner conflicts that you are carrying, so that they never ever get to dissolve, and they continue to limit your lives for all eternity. Dare to stand naked and true in front of yourselves, your own mirror's reflection and each other in your close relationships. Dare to open yourselves up to the pain that you are carrying inside, and dare to make contact with your memories, your traumas, betrayals, disappointments, traumatic experiences, and conflicts of different kinds. Dare to open yourself up to what's painful, dare to meet the pain to make it dissolve and become lighter. For every conflict and every blockage that you confront, your minds will feel lighter, and your spiritual energy bodies will shine with more and more light. It will help you develop your consciousness and reach higher spiritual levels. This is the road to spiritual development. There are huge waves of healing energies that are flowing in over the Earth that are growing bigger and more powerful every day, and mankind has in this period of time an incredibly unique opportunity to work with its inner spiritual development - and to heal its karma, to heal its inner conflicts and traumas - that has never been seen before in humanity's history. It is a completely unique opportunity that mankind has today for powerful spiritual transformation, where you during a very short time can grow very, very fast, and expand your energy body and your aura and reach completely amazing, never before seen, levels of spiritual growth, insight and power.


Tina: Your children need you. Your future children need you. They need you to be true. How else are you going to create paradise on Earth, if you have not cleansed yourself inside and dared to stand up to your traumas? You hide the pain like hard balls inside yourselves, but these balls will bounce out at the children who will also get wounds and bruises from them. You need to cleanse yourself inside to be the true parents who are bringing forth the new children that are coming to Earth. You need to take responsibility, not just for Mother Earth but also for all of Mother Earth's children.

Maria: The children who are living on Earth today, especially in the richer parts of the world, are not always living in the abundance that you might believe from looking at the outside. We see the piles of toys, video games, Internet and cell phones, but what we are not seeing is the big sense of lack and grief that many children are carrying. The grief of being left to their electronic isolated reality. The lack of contact with nature, the lack of spiritual guidance. Something that the children themselves cannot put into words and don't even know they experience the lack of. But somewhere inside of them there exists a sorrow, an emptiness, the lack of being grounded and the closeness to nature. Children need the grounding female energies from inside the Earth to become balanced and harmonic humans just in the same way that grown-ups today need it. Today's children are much too ungrounded and stressed and live far too unbalanced lives. Often they live very isolated from the grown-ups' world and are left to their own realities in the contact with the Internet, video games and other media. They seek guidance but find it nowhere. Many children carry a lot of inner wisdom, they still remember a lot of the things that one as a grown-up forgets. Children listen to the songs of the birds, they listen to the birds' messages, what it is that the birds want to say to them. Children see when the dead visit you and come with a greeting. Children see through the grown-ups' lies. They can sense there's something that's not right and many children feel very bad today and need help and guidance.

Tina: Instead of giving toys to your children, we are asking you to give yourself to them. We ask you to give yourself to them, without all these experiences that you always want to feed the children with. We ask you to give yourself in silence, to sit together with the children and just be. The children of today are not used to this in today's society, at least not here in Sweden and in the rich parts of the world. The children are always expecting new impulses, new impulses, new impulses, and these impulses are only coming from the outside world. You have to teach the children to sit together in silence so that they start discovering their own impulses. You can do this by sitting with them in nature as well, or by putting on music and listening. But preferably, teach your children to just sit with you, with their eyes closed. Children need to find the way into themselves and they need you to help them. Teach your children what you also need to learn.

Maria: Because children are constantly activated and surrounded by outer stimuli, they are never given the opportunity to discover their own rich inner world, this unlimited “fantasy world,” as many call it, their own inner reality. Instead they are being constantly interrupted and the connection to their inner world is cut off. In order for our children to feel healthy, they, just as grown-ups do, need to stimulate and develop the relationship with their inner world. They must stop being fed with outer stimuli, with technology and all forms of communication because that's directly working against children's ability to inner balance and harmony, and it makes children ungrounded and unable to focus, to concentrate and to be present in the now. They start behaving like their parents: stressing and running from place to place, from project to project, from challenge to challenge, from stimuli to stimuli. Help the children to discover their own inner world and their own inner wisdom that they carry. Children carry just as big treasures as us grown-ups, and more.

The children of the new age have come to us to teach us the ancient wisdom. They carry treasures, they carry insights and experiences that they are bringing to us to share with us. This is why so many children today, sometimes called Indigo children or Star children, are born with special gifts. These children need a lot of healing and also help to reconnect with their inner wisdom, and to get the space they need to be able to develop freely and not be limited. Today, children are being put into small tight boxes in many of the ways they are being treated. Of course this way of bringing up our children is something that we believe - that we are certain - is something good for the children. But it is important here that we think again, that we stop limiting children's limitlessness and creativity, and that we see them as whole beings with fantastic wisdom, inner truth and creativity. We have just as much to learn from them as they have to learn from us. We must see them as the divine creatures they are and see the wisdom they carry if only they open up to it, if we let the children blossom, if we give them the opportunity to open their inner spaces by turning off the TV, by turning off the Internet, by taking them out into nature, by creating stillness, by giving the children an opportunity for reflection, calmness and meditation, by not pouring stuff into them anymore.

The Indigo children or Star children are the bridge builders into the New Spiritual Age. They have come to us to show the way into the new age and they are coming with many new insights about the new world and how we should change it to manifest a more humane and loving world to live in. Listen to your children because they carry so much more than we think. Many of them remember their earlier existences and they can intuitively feel that there is something not right, but they just do not know what it is. If we help the children and stimulate their own inner spiritual development, they will open themselves up like fantastic, beautiful flowers. It is they who are the leaders of tomorrow, it is they who will guide us and show us the way to paradise.


Tina: What we want to bring forth are pictures of a future, both a dark picture and a bright picture. A dark picture - for all the systems that do not lead to the development of life. For all the old systems that hold people locked in small compartments, that hold people locked in fear and destructiveness. It is this dark picture that will change and become a bright picture. The bright picture is what we have already brought forth, that the many new energies streaming to the Earth are raising the consciousness of mankind and raising mankind's knowledge and wisdom about how humans can influence and create a paradise on Earth. We are telling you that the choice is yours, inside of you. Which image do you want to choose? Which choice do you want to make inside of you? Do you want to stick to the old systems, those that will not hold for much longer anyway, or start taking steps towards a new brighter future? We are not judging you no matter which choice you make. We are not putting any value on it when we say a “dark” choice or a “bright” choice. It is rather about the energies and the consciousness that the choices are being characterized by. The “dark” choice is the consciousness that doesn't lead to enlightenment; the “bright” choices are the ones that will lead you in spiritual development. We do not want to condemn you, we just want to point to possible paths, and to point to the possibilities that you as humans have through making more conscious choices. The future is bright, your future is bright. Your love is bright. Do not forget yourselves. Listen, listen, listen inward. Also we want to say is that even though you are getting the message through Tina here, it is just as easy to create this connection yourselves even though you will not hear it in the same way. We communicate through energies to all of you. If you are only willing to open yourself up and have trust, you will hear us as well. Best regards, walk in peace.

Maria: To make a place for a new world, all the old structures must first be demolished, and this is also what will happen. The world and the structure of society as it is today cannot hold in the long run, and it will not hold for much longer. It will be demolished. It will make a place for and make a way for you to build up a new world, and it is your responsibility now to decide what the new world will look like. It is also your choice how you meet the challenges that you will be faced with as human beings. You can choose to bury your head in the sand, or you can choose to start today to create your own visions and open up to new possibilities and your own development. The changes will come no matter what human beings believe, because the system present on Earth today is not sustainable, and it will be demolished. It has already started to collapse. The question now is how mankind will meet these big changes that are on their way in and what you will make of them. You have a completely fantastic opportunity to join in and create a new world, new alternatives to the old world. And this is the reason why you have come to Earth, it is why you have incarnated here on Earth, to join in the building of the new world. Imagine what a fantastic possibility! Each and every one of you has a purpose to fulfill. You can take your first step from where you are standing today. Each and every one of you knows exactly what it is, what is exactly right for you. No one else can tell you what it is. You carry the answers inside of you. But do know that no matter what the step is, you are endlessly loved for who you are. You are endlessly loved divine beings. Thank you.

Tina: Thank you.



The Mother Earth Network is a global spiritual network run by Maria Bertram and Manne Lindberg outside of Stockholm. Maria is a spiritual guide, healer and medium, and Manne is responsible for information and communication. The network's main purpose is to bring people together from all over the world to help our beloved Mother Earth through monthly global healing sessions.

Maria receives guidance for the network's activities from the Divine Consciousness, nature spirits on Earth, masters and other helpers in the spirit world, and friends from other civilizations in Cosmos. Maria work as a channel to bring messages from other civilizations. She's also a link between the Mother Earth Network and a gigantic cosmic network with all of the friends mentioned above, that we cooperate with in the healing of the Earth. They are always present and contributing with their energies during our global healingsessions.

The ever growing network consists of more than 1500 members worldwide (April 2010). Our most important activity is to send healing to the Earth at every (Swedish) full moon from 8:00 pm-8:30 pm (Swedish time zone - use to translate to your local time zone). The healing is sent according to channeled instructions. Our vision is to bring together all the networks and individuals across the world who want to help our Mother Earth, and together send healing to her regularly. During these sessions we're sending her the red female energies from Earth's interiour, that she needs to rebalance her energy system.

We hold free public channelings in Sweden of the Divine Consciousness (God), and we plan to hold public channelings of other civilizations in Cosmos. We are also spreading instructions on how to channel Mother Earth-healing for yourself (channeling the red female energies from Earth's interiour that humanity is lacking today). This channeled technique is a very powerful tool for your spiritual development that helps you preparing for the shift into the New Spiritual Age. We don't have a website yet, but it is in the planning stage. The network is run non-profit and everything we offer is 100% free.

If you are not already a member - send your e-mail adress to to recieve our newsletters with healing instructions, global healing session reminders, new channelings and other updates.

With Light, Strenght and Love
