Synchronistically, the right people have crossed my path at the perfect time, the appropriate books were there for me when needed. The information that was made available to me has helped me to move into the right direction on my own spiritual journey. The links below represent major steps in my personal development. It is certainly not a complete list of important influences for me. By reading this, you might learn a bit more about me. Even so I believe that every person's spriritual growth is an individual journey and each person's path is marked by different experiences, you might find some useful leads.

It must have been around 1990, that I attended my first Esoteric Fair in Berlin. Among the many interesting products one fascinated me especially: There was this table full of purple metal plates. I felt totally drawn to them. It was probably because of the mesmerizing color. I had to talk to the man promoting them. He explained that these plates are designed to help raise the vibrational frequency of the body. By functioning as transceivers of the Earth's paramagnetic force they create a field of energy around themselves. This Life Force Energy field will penetrate any material substance by osmosis. He told me that these plates were invented using technology originating from Nicola Tesla's research. While I am truly admiring the genius of Tesla, I was completely unable to comprehend the idea of Life Force Energy radiating around these plates. Even so I really liked the cool looks of the purple plates I thought it was a scam and I left. After checking out several other vendors I found myself back at the stand with the Purple Plates.
"Do you have 10 minutes for a test?" The Promoter asked. I did. He took three large plates and put them on the seat of a chair. He invited me to sit on the plates to find out if I would feel the energy emanating from them. I was absolutely certain that the next 10 minutes would be a waste of my time but since I did not want to seem rude I sat down. I was wrong - and it did not even take me 10 minutes until I realized it. I felt the energy penetrating me. After about 5 minutes I felt like I was sitting on a pincushion. I just had to get up. The energy was way to strong for me. I guess one plate would have been sufficient, but he wanted to make sure to drive home his point. I purchased a set of the plates and I started to use them regularly. I found out that they are great for treating burns, sunburns, cuts and all kinds of other ailments. My amazing experience with these plates sparked my curiosity about the whole topic of energy healing and balancing of the subtle energy bodies and chakras. Being introduced to the Purple Energy Plates truly marked a milestone by opening up my mind to a completely new range to possibilities. I have been carrying a little plate with me every day for years, I have given these plates to many of my friends and I strongly recommend them as an efficient tool for energy healing.
This book came into my life at the perfect time. In the mid 1990's I had started to notice occurrences of synchronicity, but I was still pretty much a beginner in seeing the connections. The prophecies in the book seemed to totally reflect some of the turning points on my own journey. Things started to make a lot more sense. The prophecies include insights about the "hidden energy" that surrounds us everywhere. It explains how we humans get into conflicts with each other as a result of an underlying fight for energy. People steal other people's energy by controlling them through the use of certain behavior patters. The insights show that the way out of such conflict is to learn how to raise ones own energy level without feeding of other people like a parasite. Many people are unaware of ways how we can raise our energy levels. Learning how to do that will end the need for all conflicts. What an inspirational book! James Redfield has written a series of books after this one, but for me "The Celestine Prophecy" was the most significant. l read it several times. It has been one of the most important books of my life because I found in it validation for some of my own experiences. It also gave me a great vision for the continuation of my spiritual journey. The book was on the New York Times Bestseller list for over three years and was published in over 40 languages. I hope that the new generation of seekers will find this book as useful and enlightening as it was for me.
I have felt a great sense of gratitude towards James Redfield for writing this book. I was very happy when I finally had the chance to meet him in person for the first time at an event in San Francisco many years later. As things turned out, I became one of the volunteers working with James' team to promote the "Celestine Prophecy" Movie in San Francisco prior to it's world premier.
James and his wife Salle also hold bi-weekly Teleconferences called the Global Prayer Project that connects people from all around the world in Prayer, Meditation and Discussion. You may find out more on their website.
Shirley MacLaine was introduced to me indirectly. My mother was a huge fan and loved her books. So I knew that giving of Shirley MacLaine books was a save present. I had been buying her books for years before reading one myself. It was "The Camino" that I felt I had to read. Shirley shares very personal visions and experiences during her nearly 500-mile pilgrimage along the Santiago de Compostela Camino in Spain. She is tracing the footsteps of historic figures like Saint Francis of Assisi on her trek. Historic events and their results in the Presence become very clear. I really enjoyed reading the story told by Shirley with her great dry sense of humor.
While some of Shirley's insights confirmed some of my own experiences, others required me to reconsider my beliefs. I did a lot meditating over some of the thoughts and theories presented in the book. As a result my horizons were expanded and I also added going on a pilgrimage on the Santiago de Compostela Camino to my personal to-do-list.
Shirley has also a very comprehensive website exploring many interesting and thought provoking topics. Access to the information and her Radio Shows featuring many guests requires membership. I applaud Shirley very much for speaking out so bravely about her insights. In doing so she provides validation to the experiences of many other people like myself. This helped to encourage me to trust myself and in a way it empowered me to move ahead on my own path of spiritual growth.
I really like Michael's style - a lot of wisdom wrapped into great humor. He was one of several Speakers during a Reincarnation workshop organized by the Learning Annex San Francisco. I was impressed by his unique take on some questions I had been pondering about for a long time. What people have to say is equally important as how they do present it. I have heard many times before that our thoughts are the foundation for what will materialize. I did believe that in order to increase the positive results in my life I had to add more and clearer positive thoughts. But never before did I really come to the insight that the mere adding of positive thinking and visualizations is not the key to success when at different times I still engage into negative thinking. Instead, a complete replacement of negative and limiting thoughts is what's needed. I never before truly understood how every negative thought is sent into the Universe and will by default materialize unwanted consequences in the physical reality if left out there unstopped and unrecalled. It became clear to me during that workshop how I was responsible for some undesired results in my life.
But it got even better. At the end of Michael's presentation he invited the participants to take part in a guided healing meditation. Normally, I find that guided meditations do not work well for me. But Michael's meditation was different. I felt that his voice was perfect for it and I liked the course of the meditation. About half way through the meditation Michael said that a huge Angel offered his healing power. Just after he had announced the presence of this Angel I felt a strong energy wave hitting me on my right side. I was in a very relaxed state and I suddenly was almost pushed off my chair, without anyone touching me physically. How crazy was that! While I re-established my balance after the first impact I sensed how this powerful energy completely penetrated my body. I had never experienced anything like that before. But Michael’s explanation naming an Angel as source of this energy did not fit into my belief system. What a dilemma! I could not deny the strong sensation I had felt, but I was stubborn enough to hold onto my belief system negating the existence of Angels. So what caused the experience? This day really got me thinking...
Michael works from Soul to Soul with his students. I have not experienced this the same way with any other teacher. Even when just engaging into small talk or while he tells a joke I feel how he does work with me "in the background". Some of his students report that he works with them before and after the classes distantly - mostly during their sleep. I have attended additional workshops with Michael and I plan to continue to learn from him in the future.
Never before had I consulted a physic, I really do not have the desire to know what the future holds. But during a period of just a couple of weeks the name Kevin Ryerson popped up again and again. When I heard his name for the third time during a workshop about reincarnation it really got my attention. I received a very enthusiastic reference attesting to Kevin's ability to provide important information about previous life times. That knowledge can be used to break certain unfavorable patters that may be repeated throughout different lifetimes. I explored his website and I was sure I wanted to give it a try.
Since early childhood I had felt strong connections to specific cultures and places. It was not until many years later that I started to suspect this to be a resonance from previous life times. I tried to dig deeper inside me during meditation without finding any details to confirm it. So at some point I had given up. But suddenly, in the year 2003 I started to have visions of ancient places and persons. It all seemed to come together and all made sense. I did not talk to anyone about it because I did not want to invite being ridiculed. But in the year 2005 something changed dramatically. I had moments with total awareness of my present lifetime and a previous life at the same moment. It was not a switching in between the two scenarios. They happened simultaneously and I consciously participated in both actively. It totally freaked me out the first time it happened and I was glad that it was over after just a minute or so. But this phenomenon kept happening more frequently. So I felt that this particular previous life must hold some significance to my current situation. The year 2005 was almost over and it was in many ways the worst year of my life. Unexpected turns with consequences that I considered to be negative and detrimental to my plans kept popping up one after another. But at the same time I felt that I my spiritual development had accelerated. In a sense I felt that both was true at the same time: 2005 had been the worst year of my life based on how I perceived the physical reality, but it seemed to be the best year of my life so far looking at my spiritual development. I thought that I needed help. Kevin seemed to be the right person to turn to. But I still was somewhat cautious. So I made sure not to mention any specifics about the knowledge I had gained through my visions when completing his questionnaire. The session took place on November 12th, 2005. After a short talk with Kevin he went into trance and different entities spoke through him in turns. My main questions were: "Which of my past life is the most significant to learn from in my recent life situation?" and: "What have been my creative strengths and talents throughout my various Reincarnations and I how could build on it during this life time?"
The first spirit immediately introduced himself as one of my mentors during various life times. He started to talk about the very same lifetime I had seen in my visions – he referenced the same place and the same time. I was in total shock. I was told many details of that coincided with what had itself revealed to me previously plus much more. I received specific guidance and advice, and much to my surprise I was given lots of homework to do. I was told what specific places to re-visit and I was told about people I should meet.
I was extremely impressed with Kevin's talents. The most important outcome of this session was the validation of my own experiences. It is a wired thing with me: I have had the tendency to disbelieve or dismiss my own experiences. For some reason I have always looked for independent confirmation. It has been quite a struggle for me to learn to trust myself. And this one session has confirmed years of my own experiences and conclusions. Kevin's session has empowered me greatly and it has boosted my self-confidence and I am eternally grateful for that gift.
Synchronicity at work at it's best: Just a couple of weeks after I had the very strong experience during Michael Tamura's workshop described above and only 4 days after my session with Kevin Ryerson I met Ruth Rendely. I describe meeting her in detail at this page: Meeting Ruth.
Prior to being introduced to the Seraphim Blueprint my understanding of energy healing and balancing of our subtle energy bodies was still very limited. Based on my experiences I had been able to accept that energy healing works when resulting from objects transformation the energies to make them accessible for our human bodies - like the Purple Energy Plates or Acupuncture. Because of the effectiveness of Reiki I also knew that hands on energy transmission by one person to another is possible.
But the Seraphim Blueprint goes way beyond that. A serious of Initiations enables the students to activate energies at will and also use them for distance healings or to create energy pipelines. These energies are not only used for healing but can be used for many other purposes. This totally expanded my knowledge. I learned how to use my power of intention to tap into this energy network. I also learned that physical distance between the person facilitating the energy connection and the persons receiving the energies is of no consideration at all. The energies are intelligent, omnipresent and omnipotent. When using them they develop their own dynamic. They adjust to the needs of each person receiving them even beyond the initial intent of the person facilitating them. These energies understand the individual needs of each person receiving them and act on it.
My acceptance of the existence of Angels and my understanding of what they are is a direct result of using Ruth' system. I describe this process of rethinking and reorganizing of my belief system on this website.
Positive thoughts amplify physical strength, that was one of the topics Gary talked about during his book tour for his first bestseller: "May the Angels be with you". He needed a test person for a demonstration of that principle on stage - and he picked me out of the crowd. I am not a fan of that sort of attention, but I really was impressed by the results of the little experiment. That's when I first met him. I loved his inspiring story on how synchronicity worked in his own life while writing and publishing his first book. During the workshop he offered all participants the opportunity to write down clear individual life goals. He reviewed them and pointed out inconsistencies and gave advice on how to optimize them. His insights also helped me in my process of allowing myself to integrate the existence of Angels into my belief system. "Truth is self-evident. So it is with angels: If you allow them into your heart, mind, and life, angels will help you to transform your life."
"Living in the Spiritual Zone - 10 Steps to Change Your Life and Discover Your Truth" his second book provides a very practical approach to help people find their true life purpose. Gary points the readers into the right direction to start changing their lives immediately. Gary is also a great motivational and energizing Speaker. Guided by his intuition and psychic abilities he has a unique understanding of the audience. He presents his knowledge with a sense of urgency and assertiveness that really forces people to confront their own self-sabotaging routines. I benefited greatly from one of his CD's on the topic of Trust. The powerful affirmations Gary offers on how Trust creates Reality, Trusting Yourself & Others and on Trusting Life are very clear, simple and straight to the point.
Gary comes to San Francisco periodically to hold workshops and I am attending whenever possible. He always enjoys connecting people and letting information move freely to create new opportunities. It is great to see that some points on my initial "wish list" from 2006 have already materialized. Others are still work in progress. But I know I am moving into the right direction and Gary has helped me with it.
Reading the book Astral Dynamics was truly liberating for me. One day when browsing through the book store I felt almost magically drawn to this book. I opened a random page and started to read. I happened to find Robert Bruce' explanation of "Real-time Sight" and "Astral Sight", as he calls the phenomenon. I was ecstatic! I finally found confirmation and validation for something I had started to experience since about 2003. At first it only happened when waking up in the morning. My mind was already awake but I would just continue to stay in bed with my eyes closed. And suddenly I would see things - with my eyes closed. I would see my bedroom or other places, people or landscapes. I did find this phenomenon equally fascinating and disturbing. I desperately wanted to explain it somehow rationally.
But how does one explain seeing clear pictures with ones eyes closed?
Sometimes I tried to persuade myself that maybe I really had my eyes open and there was something to see... But with my eyes open I have pretty bad sight and see things blurry without glasses. However, with my eyes closed I see things totally sharp and clear. I did not know many people I dared to ask about such a thing. The very few people I talked to had no explanation to offer. I also found no leads on the internet. It almost drove me crazy.
Microscopic and Telescopic vision came next; I could start zooming into things miles away, or I suddenly could drill down to the atomic level. Later I would be able to tap into whatever it was I was seeing also before falling asleep in the evening. It happened more often and I could sustain the experiences longer. And I clearly realized that I was seeing with my eyes. Occasionally it would happen that I saw bright lights and that actually inflicted pain in my eyes as if I would get blinded. It was a totally different experience than seeing with the third eye. I had stared to accept it.
Finally reading from someone else who can relate felt great after all! Robert explains how this phenomenon is related to Out-of-Body Experiences (OBE). Some people have reported it before or during an astral projection, shortly prior to exiting their physical body. The projected double has sensory organs as do our physical bodies and it's abilities manifest spontaneously before an actual projection. Hence one can see with the eyes of the projected double while the eyes of the physical body are closed. I was so excited about this new knowledge that I did send Robert Bruce an e-mail the same day. And much to my surprise he actually answered me within just hours.
ASTRAL DYNAMICS: NEW approach to Out-of-Body Experience (Hampton Roads, VA, 1999, 560 pages) by Robert Bruce. Astral Dynamics launches some radically new concepts concerning OBE. A classic in its field, this book is a combined practical How To, training manual, theoretical perspective, and experiential guide. It provides a new outlook and understanding on the nature of out-of-body experience and how it happens, and more importantly how to achieve it. The dynamics and bio-energy mechanisms involved with OBE are discussed in great detail, including the mind/energy conflicts involved with the OBE memory download, and the problems that arise as side-effects of the mind split effect. Practical solutions are offered throughout, along with extensive training and energy work sections. The knowledge offered greatly improves OBE success rates, and empowers all aspects of OBE.
Symbole - Trilogie III „Antares“
Nach der Wahrnehmung von Werner J. Neuner entspringt das Wissen über diese Symbole nichtirdischen Quellen. Die Symbolkräfte von Antares befähigen den menschlichen Geist, freie Energien konzentriert und zielgerichtet einzusetzen. Es geht im Wesentlichen darum, den Emotionalkörper des Menschen auszuheilen und zu stabilisieren. So kann der Mensch mit der gesamten Schöpfung wieder eins werden und es wird ihm der Weg der Wertfreiheit und der inneren Ruhe gezeigt.

Mother Meera receives thousands of visitors of all religions for darshan which she conducts in total silence. Her darshan consists of a ritual, where she will touch a person's head, and then look into their eyes. During this process, she reportedly 'unties knots' in the person's subtle system and permeates them with light. She doesn't charge any money for doing so and she will not give lectures. Mother Meera's reported task on Earth was in calling down a dynamic light-force from the Supreme (Paramatman - the supreme Self) in collaboration with other saints and divine beings, as she says, making spiritual progress on earth easier.
