Spiritual Books and why "A Little Knowledge Is A Dangerous Thing"

At a certain point on the spiritual path probably everybody  thinks at least once about gathering all his/her thoughts and experiences and share them in a book. So did I (much to my husband's amusement).
And I think it's great that every day new publications come out on this specific field and people are running to bookstores to find answers and help. But I think especially books with all kinds of spiritual practices and certain categories where each chapter describes a disease, for instance, and gives a list of reasons to why the disease is "created" should be treated with caution.
Ok, certain thought patterns and core beliefs can cause physical imbalance and eventually lead to illness, we all know that...but how healthy is it really to read about this and then do nothing about it?
This would be a typical reaction of a woman reading such a book for example;
"OMG, I'm soo not accepting my femininity! I'm defo going to have problems with my female organs..."
And then she goes back to living her usual life. No further practice. No therapy. No diving into the darker & deeper aspects of the soul. Nothing.
Just a constant voice that says "you're going to have problems with....you're going to have problems with..."
We all know how the law of attraction works, right???
So if you're not planning to dig down deep it's probably better to avoid such information for now ;)))

Love & light...

How Solar Activity Affects Humans (Gillian MacBeth-Louthan)

"Earth and all of her inhabitants, are a spherical receiver/transmitter. Solar flares can affect the central nervous system (including the stomach lining), all brain activity (including equilibrium), all human and animal behavior and all mental-emotional-physical responses. Solar flares can cause us to be nervous, anxious, worrisome, jittery, irritable, and lethargic, have short-term memory loss, nausea, headaches, and trouble with all forms of communication--both human and technological. Solar activity illuminates consciousness opening new neuro-pathways ; old patterns are consumed in Light, to make way for the new paradigm."

That might explain why both of my parents have been suffering from severe stomach pains and nausea for the last few days...

Hope everybody will get away with it as mild as possible ;))

Jennifer Hoffman's answer...

I just read Jennifer's weekly newsletter and the article below resonates really well with my previous post giving the whole subject such a nice perspective...

Q&A — When does this healing journey end?
Published March 11, 2012


QUESTION: Dear Jennifer, I have been living this healing path for 30 plus years I am 58 and I feel more lost now than ever. And at this stage I have no money to continue on and I am unable to find the answer to how or why I have done this to myself. I do grow everyday and there is big healing in my life. Am I just confused or doing something wrong? When does this healing journey end? I’m so tired of feeling like everything always falls apart.

ANSWER: Do you feel like you are going around in circles? Maybe I should use the word ‘cycles’ because healing happens in the four stages I describe as the process of Spiritual Initiation, which is discussed in detail in Ascending into Miracles. The steps are birth, when a healing cycle starts, the trial, where we experience the challenge, the lesson, which is what we intend to learn from the challenge, and then enlightenment, where we put it all together, heal, learn, grow, transform and then move on. Your cycle moves between the first three steps and never gets to enlightenment.
My question for you is, if you are not going through some aspect of healing in your life, what would your life be like? And that is the key to moving out of the lifeless vacuum you feel your life has become. You have to allow yourself to be healed and whole, to have the joy, abundance, success, love, and peace in your life that you never seem to accomplish because you believe that healing is your life purpose and it is, but we must eventually move beyond the healing and into wholeness.
Many Lightworkers hold the martyred healer paradigm and it has been part of our service to the world. I believe that to maintain the balance between light and dark in the third dimension, we agreed to hold energetic space for more darkness than others so humanity could eventually achieve ascension. But it’s time to let that go, and we no longer have to be the space for that darkness. The problem is that we have done this for so long that we don’t know how to be victors, instead of martyrs.
Can you give yourself permission to be whole, to acknowledge your completion and move into enlightenment? This means you have to release the need to hold lower vibrating energies and allow yourself to be a ‘whole healer’ who leads instead of teaches, who experiences all of the love, abundance and joy that you try to create on behalf of others. Make a commitment to allow abundance into your life and you will experience it. Let go of your martyr paradigm and experience the higher vibrations of the victorious healer, one whose light is a brilliant example of what can be experienced when we stand in the light and allow ourselves to receive all of the blessings our loving, benevolent Universe has to offer.

When does it end?

For the last few months I've been observing people who are eager to leave behind victim-roles, dark energies and ego-ruled behavior. Almost all guides agree that nobody will be left behind and I can clearly see that even people that were refusing to open up show signs of willingness for ascension. I'm sure that they will all find their way. The right teacher, the right book and the right guidance will definitely be given to those who take the step forward. But what I'm also observing is that many believe that when awakening occurs and certain moves are made toward ascension there will be a point when the person is going to be free of all problems/negativities/challenges etc.
And because of this expectation people start to get frustrated when despite all of the work they're doing they still aren't able to create their own heaven that was promised in the beginning. Many give up at this point and go back..which is sad because it requires only one little change of perspective, one little change in the way of thinking that will bring them to the point they all want to reach so much (and eventually will). Being free of all problems and negativities is not going to be an external act...there isn't such a point where your frequency is high enough to keep you in a heaven-like place. You simply have to stop seeing things as problems/negativities/challenges etc. Anything, and by that I mean anything happens for a reason and if we could always see the big picture (and you can, if you work on it) we would be so relaxed and open to all the experiences we create and attract. And when you stop seeing experiences as negative you can finally arrive at that point of eternal happiness.
Many people are also disappointed because they think their progress is not fast enough or in many cases not as fast as others'. Comparing ourselves with others is, of course, an ego thing and very normal. But we shouldn't forget that we never can be sure of other people's emotional states, how they came to that point and how they're actually feeling. Here's a very nice article on this...
Long story short, the answer to the above question is: It doesn't.
And we should be soo happy about this. It's such a joyful, exciting and very satisfying journey where happiness is not the goal but a constant companion...if you allow it.

Why do we live where we live? Karma???



Starting from the place we were born every single city we put foot on has a hidden meaning we might or might not be aware of. I’m sure there were cities you visited where you have strangely felt “at home” and everything seemed so familiar. Or the opposite, there were cities you hated from the first minute you arrived, without any specific reason. The former I experienced in Beirut, for instance, and the latter in Cairo.


In case you believe in past or parallel lives, it is possible that you have lived there before or had some kind of connection to this place and in a higher dimension decided to clean/release that specific karma by coming back. Not necessarily by conscious choice. You don’t really need to know your history at that particular place, although, of course, it fastens the process and makes you see things more clearly, but it’s not always essential to be “aware.”

In this article, I’d like to tell my story and talk about the Aegean city called Izmir.

There are many different reasons why you could end up in this old city once being called Smyrna. Your job…a relationship/marriage…the simple desire to change locations…

I did because of love...
The majority of foreigners in Izmir are either British, American/Canadian or French, so if you are a foreigner living in Izmir I would assume that in many cases there is a certain connection to the Levantines, who settled in “Smyrna” during time of the Ottoman Empire and although their number has decreased after 1923 (~ 1500 families still living here today) they are still present and carry a special energy . You can find many books and articles about these families, who had a huge impact on the economic, cultural and social history of Izmir. You can google stories and pictures about the Whittalls, the de Jonghs, the Rees, the Girauds, the Patersons, the Alliottis and so many many more…

Their main places of settlement were Alsancak, Buca, Bornova and Bayrakli. So if you live or should one day end up in one of those places you might have found the first connection for yourself.

Here’s my story…

The past summer of 2o11 carried a very heavy energy of karmic cleansing. My past life journey started last year when I met somebody who instantly triggered memories that didn’t make any sense at first. The memories or rather images that started to flow were about a life in Germany, a young Jewish woman who was left behind by her family and ended up in a concentration camp, probably the one near Munich called Dachau, which I had visited in this life when I was 13 and had felt extremely deep sorrow and sadness. A person that I had met in Izmir seemed to be specifically responsible for my being left behind and every time we met I saw and felt regret and apology. This past life also explains my first 15 years of this life in Germany as a Turkish person that felt excluded and not wanted (receiving anonymous calls saying “Auslaender raus! / Foreigners out!) and forced her family to move back home to feel safe and “included.”

The same name then took me back to much older times, almost 3000 years ago, to a place which is now called Lebanon. I was introduced to a Phoenician story about Princess Elissa (also called Dido) who was a princess of Tyre. Her brother, the king of Tyre (Pygmalion), murdered her husband, the city's high priest. She fled, first to Cyprus, then to North Africa and founded Carthage. When she fled Tyre & later Cyprus, away from King Pgymalion, she took with her priests & temple maidens of Astarte. The story is that Elissa, offered as much land as a hide would cover, cut it into thin strips, tied them end to end, and marked off the whole hilltop. (http://elissa.org/history.shtml)

I can’t really comment on the connections I found on this one because the images and the info that came were so multi-faceted and jumbled that it’s kind of impossible for me to put them into meaningful sentences. All I can say is that every single image made me feel lighter, as if a burden had been released…

There are several techniques that can be applied to connect to your other lives, I mainly used the Akasha Records technique which is one of the quantum thinking techniques I learned a few years ago when I attended a practitioner’s course. But most of the time there were simply just visions and pictures that suddenly appeared in my mind.

When I say past lives, I’d like to point out, by the way, that I’m not so sure anymore if what we think as past lives are actually part of our past, or, if they are, in fact, lives of our “other selves” in parallel universes. Anyone who’s interested in quantum physics is familiar with the thought that time is not linear but dynamic and some even say time doesn’t exist at all and everything is happening in the Now. But that’s a subject for another post 

Whatever your reason(s) may be for your choice of location, always try to keep in mind the possibility, that is, opportunity of cleaning your Karma and letting go burdens and issues which you’re still subconsciously carrying on your shoulders.
