Happy Chinese New Year 2018

The past year showed as what a fire-rooster can be up to. Now time has come to say ‘good bye’ and to welcome the ruler of the new year.

On 03 February 2018, 21:28h GMT, the earth-dog takes over to rule over time and space.

Looking at the personality of the dog gives us an impression of what the new year will be like: reserved, persuasive, prudent, faithful, responsible, considerate, straight forward, creative, cynical, and occasionally obstinate. We really may be looking forward to experiencing this very interesting mixture that will show us the human skills of this pack animal.


Those who know what it is like to live in a close companionship know what encourages a peaceful life and what leads to unneccessary friction among the members of that group. Ideally everyone knows his or her place in that community and when time has come to bring about changes he or she will step forward and take action. Nobody else will be sent forward, no hiding behind somebody’s back. For some people stepping forward can be quite a challenge because they may not be clear about what they really want or need or may not be able to be true to themselves. But this year will bring relief, the dog will lead the way.

There may be occasions when the leader of a pack is challenged to resign his position. If the self-appointed successor is able to prove even against resistance that he is much better suited for the position the former leader will make place and will settle down at his new position.

During the whole process it is absolutely clear what is going on. No scheming, no covering up, no smoke screens, no secret alliances. It looks as if the pack on four paws can handle those situations much better than the herd on two legs. Why not take our cue from that?!
The earth-dog in particular is a talented and astute creature working always methodically and efficiently. He is kind and generous offering a helping hand whenever one is needed.

Being rather quiet he does not make a fuss about his own affairs. With his persuasive manner he usually secures his objectives without too much opposition.

This year we should allow us to spend more time with and for ourselves, enjoying our interests, enjoying everything we have achieved so far. We should be sharing that with those we love and those we like. Doing that we give hope and strength to carry on to those who need that.

We can see the dog as symbol for intelligence and protection. People who feel socially discriminated will probably demand radical changes to their life conditions and they might even be ready to fight for their rights, for a life worth living, for now and for the future.

Relationships and success in business get new qualities depending on the way we communicate with each other. We will soon find out that being generous and unselfish gives us what we can really gain from. Improving healthcare and public health, welfare, caring for others, social skills, education and training are issues the dog wants us to deal with. Empathy and social justice are the only things that count when the earth-dog rules over us.

The earth-dog provides us with the element of earth in its Yang form, not just a hill or a single mountain, rather a mountain range or generally speaking all the ‘earth’ we can set foot on. So this year should become a year in which we pay back the favours we received when exploiting natural resources. Hopefully those in charge in politics and industry feel encouraged to reduce pollution, to initiate reafforestation and go deeper into research and implementation of renewable energies.


Now let’s see what the year of the earth-dog may bring to the various signs of the zodiac:

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018):
Birds of a feather flock together. This gives strength and courage to take matters even further. A successful year is waiting for you. Taking proper action lets even a delicate little plant become a big tree.
The dragon-month, 04 April 2018 – 05 May 2018, will be a tough test for your patience. The ‘rabbit’ can show you how to dodge and turn corners.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
This year will be stable and unwinding. There will be no considerable ups and there will be no downs worth mentioning. Becoming modest can get you far further than you think.

Do not expect much from the month of the snake, 05 May 2018 – 05 June 2018. It helps to be in the company of a ‘tiger’.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Although horses are definitely more exhausting than dogs things may not run as smoothly as you wish. If you throw in the towel, will there be one left to get you dry after having taken a shower? Calculated optimism is what gets you through the year.
The month of the horse, 05 June 2018 – 07 July 2018, should not be used for far reaching decisions or to settle financial matters. The ‘ox’ is always a good companion.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
This year many people seem to be dressed up for mayhem and madness. Remaining patient it is you who can manage to bring things into the right order. As soon as one matter is settled the next one may come up. Keep calm and carry on.
The month of the goat, 07 July 2018 – 07 August 2018, should be used to relax, important activities won’t bear fruit. Ox is advised to seek the company of ‘rats’.

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
How relaxing it can be to meet an ally. Your status improves, things run smoother than they did last year. Be mindful what you spend your money on or who you support.
A special challenge will be the month of the monkey, 07 August 2018 – 07 September 2018. Do what you know best and gather momentum for the rest of the year. A ‘pig’ should be your favoured friend and helper.

Rabbit(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
Expect a pleasant year. Your good friend, the dog, takes good care of you so that you can recover completely from the difficulties you were facing recently. Your career requires more attention. Your preferred method of choice should be diplomacy.
The time between 07 September 2018 and 08 October 2018, the month of the rooster, demands withdrawal in all fields. A ‘dog’ is a trustworthy friend at all times.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
You should get ready for a year that can be a little uncomfortable. “Forward march! Beat retreat!” can be the best thing to do in times when your arch-rival is in command, which actually is the whole year. Be careful who you place your trust in.
In the month of the dog, 08 October 2018 – 07 November 2018, you might encounter even more challenging obstacles. If possible avoid disputes at all costs, at least keep them to an absolute minimum. Remain true to yourself and concentrate on your strength. If you need assistance ask the ‘rooster’.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
It is not always opportune to express ones personal point of view. ‘I do not express what I think but what I say is what I think’ gets you furthest this year. It is the right time for new endeavours as opportunities for advancement come up.
The month of the pig, 07 November 2018 – 07 December 2018, is best used for relaxation and withdrawal. See to it that you have a ‘monkey’ at your side.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
Being an ally of the dog will present you an exceptionally good year. Success in business, success in academic affairs, reaching goals . . . you name it. Who could ask for more?! Influential people may come up with more possibilities for advancement.
The month of the rat, 07 December 2018 – 05 January 2019, will be quite challenging. Being in the company of a ‘goat’ helps to take things more easily.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
To be left in the lurch can be as annoying as it is frustrating. The only way to get through this is to roll up your sleeves and do it all by yourself. Do not deal with matters that are none of your business. Before you do good consider the consequences.
If you need help, ask the ‘horse’. Don’t do important work in the month of the ox, 05 January 2019 – 04 February 2019.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
It pays to make decisions and to commit to them. Changing horses midstream leads you astray. It is vital to know who can trust. Special care and mindfulness is advised in financial matters.
The year starts with the most challenging month, the month oft of the tiger. Use the time from 03 February 2018 – 05 March 2018 to built up steam slowly but steadily so you are ready to move on as soon as this month is over. Whenever you need a friend think of the ‘snake’ first.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017):
Socialising, enjoyment, and good times prevail. Financial difficulties can be avoided only through the support of advisers that have ‘integrity’ and ‘honesty’ as their trademarks. No step forward is better than one step back.
The month of the rabbit, 05 March 2018 – 04 April 2018, might be a little bit provoking. You better join forces with a ‘dragon’.

In the annual cycle the dog represents the end of autumn and he prepares us for the season of winter. The harvest should have been brought in by now, preparations should be made to get safely through the cold season. Nature is withdrawing and so should we. At least, we should slow down as it is not the right time for enormous advancements.

Looking at the dog through the eyes of the Traditional Chinese Medicine we must talk about a yang-earth/yang-earth constellation in which yin-fire and yin-metal are involved. Yang-earth represents the stomach, , yin-fire stands for the heart, blood and blood vessels, yin-metal for the lung.

Talking about yang-earth we ideally find us centred in ourselves, in peace and harmony with ourselves and with all around us. Solid as a rock, so to say, full of basic trust. But if we are not in a stable condition we might become mistrustful, sceptical, or even wicked. At all costs we want to preserve all that is dear to us, we might become undiscerning or seclude ourselves, sulking.

Fire is connected with joy and enthusiasm, on the negative side with agitation and restlessness. We should constantly reflect on our actions and activities. Not taking care of our own energy, not keeping our own strength and abilities in mind we can easily cross our own boundaries which then will lead us into exhaustion or even burn out.

We should know where our own limitations are and we should know how close we allow other people to come. Whatever comes too close we should hold at bay and keep sufficient distance. We should say “yes” only when we definitely want something. All the rest belongs to the category of “no”.

Remember: there is nothing like a vague “maybe”.



In our houses, apartments, shops and offices we should use the southeast extensively as it stands for success and progress. But leave the north alone. Keep this particular sector very quiet, refrain from building activities, earthworks and renovations. Do not do anything important or work on professional matters in the north.

For further assistance ask your Feng Shui consultant for advice. beyond that. We must become firm in our minds to control ourselves so that we pause whenever it is necessary, that we find appropriate ways to calm down when we see that we get carried away.

So commitment is what the dog wants to see from us, supporting us by adding that particular ingredient that soothes the conflict between fire and metal.

We definitely won’t have a boring year ahead of us. If we manage to find strength, peace and harmony in ourselves we will be strong enough to make the changes that are necessary. As soon as we have faith in ourselves and in what we are good at the dog will be a faithful companion who guides us through the year.

(*) for this kind of analysis we work with the solar calender. With a satisfying accuracy we can say that all years start on 04 February. This means that e.g. a person born on 31 January 1983 is born in the year of the dog as the year of the pig starts on 04 February 1983.
In consultations I certainly work with the exact dates and times.

Why distant healing works and is more powerful than you think

Over the years there have been many names given to the phenomena of distant healing, such as energy healing, aura healing, shamanic healing, spiritual healing intercessory prayer, energy psychology, remote healing, non-local healing. It is truly a fascinating subject which sometimes can just go over our heads because it is hard to comprehend. Distant healing is a well established faculty and term in spiritual circles. Over the years even science showed its interest in distant healing phenomena and came up with some astonishing proof.

This new understanding on the power of distant healing will add some great value to our approach on healing body, mind and spirit. But it also opens our horizons for something that has always been around but we somehow forgotten about – the ability to actively influence energy.

For more then fifty thousand years shamans and other native healers knew about the abilities of being able to heal others, not only 1:1 but also via distant. They practised this form of healing

Next to their knowledge about plants and other herb medicines. They never doubted the power and usefulness of their healing practice.

If we do some more research in other cultures and religions we will find that the use of spiritual healing and its incredible results are recorded throughout history.

Find out for yourself

But we don’t need to be spiritual nor do we need to be religious to gain real proof of spiritual healing or distant healing experiences. Furthermore why not try a simple technique that Arthur Powell mentioned in his book ‘The Mental Body’ and see the results for yourself.

A strong wish for a friends good, sent to him as general protection agency will remain about him as a thought form for a time proportional to the strength of the thought, and will guard him against evil, acting as a barrier against hostile thoughts, and even warding of physical dangers. A thought of peace and consolation similarly sent will soothe and calm the mind, spreading around its object an atmosphere of calm.”

So why not send some loving thoughts to a friend or family member and find out how his situation or his feelings have changed by you doing that. The result will surprise you and I dare to say that you will try to convince yourself it was only coincidence and not your thoughts who made all the difference. At the early stages it is difficult to allow our minds to comprehend our full potential, nothing less please just give it a try for yourself.

More and more scientist are convinced that they have found the missing ling that would explain how spiritual healing or remote healing works. The answer we seeking for is hidden in the world of quantum physics lets explore this world a little bit deeper.

1. Quantum and remote healing how it actually works

To keep a complicated subject easy, its enough to know that: Quantum is the Latin word for amount and, in modern understanding, means the smallest possible discrete unit of any physical property, such as energy or matter.” ( 2018)

Scientist do believe that everything is made of quantum particles and that these quantum particles can actually be influenced and change their physical behaviour/states dependent on how the method they are influenced by. In many experiments they found out that it is actually possible to influence matter only with our thoughts and also to transfer thoughts to another person via distance. Which is quite a powerful faculty if it is properly trained. You might experienced something like that in your life before, when you thought of someone and suddenly the phone rang and it was actually the person you thought of. This is not coincidence and unfortunately no kind of mysticism but real physics and does work.

In 1920 Arthur E. Powell published a book “The mental body” in which he states: “If a person thinks strongly of a form in the physical brain he makes the form in etheric (Subatomic or quantum) matter in the effort of making the image he also sends out etheric waves in energy in every direction.” Here we can see that even back then people were aware on how powerful our thoughts can be.

Bruce Lipton Ph. D. a former cell biologist and professor at the National Institute of Health states in an interview very interesting how spiritual healing works on a cellular level.

When energy source entangles with another so that they interfere with each other it is called Entanglement….when one of the healers cells vibrates higher than the clients cells it becomes entangled, and the energy is lifted…”

This is a very profound and basic concept of the understanding in Quantum Physics. So Bruce Lipton says that the energy of one person can influence the energy of another person just by meeting each other. Or if we look at the statement above from Mr. Powell, that we can create powerful energy via thought transference.

The Persian physician Avicenna who is been said to have been one of the most significant physicians, astronomers, thinkers and writers of the Islamic Golden Age. Often was described as the father of early modern medicine stated, “The imagination of man can act not only on his own body but even on others and very distant bodies. It can fascinate and modify them, make them ill, or restore them to health.”

If we now look a little bit deeper into the understanding of quantum physics and its expression in distant healing we come across the term of non-locality. Dr. Larry Dossey speaks about this phenomena regarding Distant Mental effect in his book “Recovering the Soul”. In 1989 he created the concept of the non – local mind by stating:


“According to this concept, as we have seen throughout this book, consciousness cannot be completely localized or confined to specific points in space, such as brains or bodies, or to discrete points in time, such as the present moment.”


Wow, that is amazing, isn’t it? I mean, we have the scientist talking about quantum, we have others who speak about the power of thoughts. Then we have doctors and biologists who truly believe that we are able to transfer energy over a distance because thoughts can travel and consciousness doesn’t have the limitations of space and time. This is truly powerful and we can see all that which shamans and native healers knew already fifty thousand years ago, we are now able to have a proper scientific explanation.

How my distant healing & healing practice works

Even this new knowledge is absolutely fascinating I still have to say that the faculty of distant healing or remote healing needs to be trained properly. This is not only to make it more powerful and work properly but also that we understand the responsibilities and limitations that do come with it. It is very important to receive good and valuable training from a teacher to explore the possibilities of any healing but also to cultivate the faculty of distance healing.

Over the years I really had some amazing experiences in my healing practice that left myself stunned and surprised as well. Even I do know that spiritual healing, shamanic healing, energy healing and distance healing works, its power still amazes me. Furthermore the results and the healing progress of my clients make my work as a medium and healer so valuable.

On the other hand I also have seen quite the opposite when people start out being a medium and healer without even clearly knowing what they do. This can cause problems and more harm than good. I have created my own system in my healing practice which I follow with every client that contacts me to make sure that the healing can go ahead.

1. I speak to my clients before I arrange a healing session

It is very important to me to speak to any of my clients before I arrange a healing appointment with them. Only in this case I can find out if the energy of the client and my energy as a healer are in tune with each other. It also offers the opportunity to explain how I work and what to expect from a healing.

2. I don’t do any healing if the client is not committed

The healing progress can only take place if the clients is really committed to healing if that is not the case it is a waste of energy and time on both sides. This commitment can express itself in different situations such as sticking to the arranged appointment, paying on time for the session and following the advice that might be given after the session. A healing session/distant healing session takes a lot of preparation for the healer, the client should be aware of this too.

3. Distant Healing or other Healing Session don’t replace  seeing a doctor

Even distant healing or shamanic energy healing is very powerful and can really change your life, it is only complimentary. That means that you will still need to see a doctor if your health problems do require that. But a healing session will assist you to find deeper understanding of your issues as well as it will help you to activate your self-healing abilities.

4. You can’t be healed against your will and I will not heal anyone who doesn’t request it

This is very important to understand, because I frequently get emails and messages from people asking if I could do healing for this or that person. As much as I do understand that we do want to help someone in need, I will not and can’t interfere in someone else karma. People need to be open for healing if not, it goes against the morals and ethics I work with in my practice. I like to quote a statment from Arthur E. Powell from his book ‘The mental body’:

“Care must be taken not to control the patients will in any way. It is entirely wrong in principle for a man to try impose his will on another, even in order to make him do right. True growth is not helped by external coercion; the intelligence must be convinced, the emotions aroused and purified, before gain is made.”

Why not book your distant healing session  now and see how things will change?

My work as medium and healer is always based on the highest- good intentions for my clients. I am very committed to the standard of my work a follow a strict concept of morals and ethics.

You are entitled to be Angry by Franco Santoro

You are totally entitled to be angry and unforgiving towards people who hurt you as long as you don’t take revenge and hurt them in return.

Never feel guilty for being angry and upset with someone.

Your anger is sacred and real.

In this world of separation it is totally legitimate to be upset and angry.

When you cover it up with detachment, conventional good manners or haughty words about love, forgiveness and compassion, then your anger becomes very poisonous and perverted.

This type of undercover anger is what corrupts this world and kills your soul.

What to expect from February 2018 in Chinese Astrology

When the wood-tiger meets the earth-dog

The water-ox retires and with him the fire-rooster. So we are not only at the beginning of a new month but also at the beginning of a new year. The earth-dog wishes us a “Happy New Year” and takes up his reign on 03 February 2018, 21:28h GMT. With him he brings one of his allies, the wood-tiger, that will rule over the first month.

The tiger is a courageous, powerful, bold and highly vigorous creature that loves challenges. He is prepared to take risks and does not like to be held back neither by rules others have made nor by any kind of convention. This can make the tiger quite impulsive or even rebellious. He wants to be free to do as he pleases and act as he chooses. At least once during his life he will throw caution to the wind and go off and do the things he wants to do.

He is honest, courageous and
often a source of inspiration to others, he is very charismatic and has his own point of view on matters. Equipped with a strong will and determination he sets out to reach his goal proceeding very energetically. His enthusiasm with which he does what has to be done is clearly visible.
He can be patient as well as he can be spontaneous. While watching and observing what he might want we can admire him for his cautious endurance. But when he knows what he wants, all of the sudden he jumps in, completely committing himself to having it, wasting no thoughts on possible consequences.

The tiger has a restless nature which includes an adventurous mind. This makes him a busy bee that does not stay in the same place for long. His enthusiasm with which he starts a project can soon deteriorate if something comes up that is more appealing. The tiger could be more successful if he would think things through thoroughly before he takes action.

The wood-tiger in particular is of a pleasant and friendly nature. His good sense of humour is something we can all enjoy. Not being as independent as his ‘cousins’ it is a pleasure to work side by side with him. However, his restless nature gets him easily distracted.
He is very popular and can enjoys the company of a large number of friends. They all keep him busy and see to it that even is social life is never boring.

In times when both, tiger and dog, rule over us we should spend as much time as possible with those who are dear to us. Shared trips, shared pursuits lead to shared pleasure. When new opportunities present themselves we should be quick to take them. Most of the time we can really benefit from what comes up at short notice. If we are able to keep our private life and our work in balance we will be on the winning side of the month that is ruled by two allies.

Time to find out what the signs of the zodiac are going to encounter when dog and tiger are in charge:

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
can really draw on unlimited resources. There will only be little what cannot be achieved. In private life as well as in business life all signs point to success and letting visions become reality. Keep yourself from overspending.

Rabbit(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
et your share of the big cake. But to be cautious at all times and make sure not to act
recklessly. The tiger’s explosive nature can have such effect on the rabbit’s peaceful nature. Let your friend, the dog, guide you.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
The month will come up with a lot of activities, changes, volatile relationships. Keep your life balanced between fun, social events, new opportunities and worries, anger about plans obstructed by others, or any stressful situation.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
You won’t be able to pull all the strings, most of the time difficulties and calamities may result from the actions of others. It is utterly important to know who you can trust. Do not start anything without a plan B.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
Hard work really pays off. Keeping a low profile is definitely not what is called for this month. Your allies, the tiger and the dog, can support you best when and where others can see you. You are definitely on the sunny side of the month.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
Enjoy your journeys wherever they may take you. There will be a lot of movement, there will be a lot of moving experiences. Be focused and disciplined and have a realistic view on matters. Watch out or the new month will become more expensive than it should.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
Being safe is still better than being sorry. Who is in a hurry should make a detour. It helps to economise your own strength. Keep a low profile as long as your opponent, the tiger, rules the month.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017):
Exciting changes may happen. It is up to you to appreciate them as ‘good’ or curse them as ‘bad’. Think before you act. Making the wrong move is only one way of asking for trouble. Sobriety and inner peace make all the difference.

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018):
The omens are favourable, all signs point to success. Tailwinds give you the right momentum to accomplish many things successfully. No sweet without sweat, mind you. But it’ll be worth it.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
Exciting times are forseen, some may be challenging, some enthralling. New opportunities lead to advancement, locally and further afield. Do not overspend and be very cautious in all financial matters.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Some events might be irritating or confusing for you. If “Plan A” does not work . . the alphabet has many more letters to offer. Practise the secret art of common sense, choke back your anger and the month will be on your side.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
month will be very rich in variety. Being prepared will not prevent things from happening, it will help you getting the most out of things that happen. Feel and obey the obligation to keep your balance. If you manage you can have a promising time.

As usual, we all should keep in mind that there are a few days on which we should not do important things.

When it comes to long-ranged projects they should not be started on 05 February 2018, not on 17 February 2018 and not on 01 March 2018. Regarding short-ranged projects we have to step back on 09 February 2018 and on 21 February 2018.

May we act in time, may we find the right balance in everything.

(*) for this kind of analysis we work with the solar calendar. With a satisfying accuracy we can say that all years start on 04 February. This means that e.g. a person born on 31 January 1983 is born in the year of the dog as the year of the pig starts on 04 February 1983. In consultations I certainly work with the exact dates and times.

How to find the right medium/psychic?

I have been a medium and healer myself for quite a few years now and I really do love my work. The best thing in my work is that I am able to assist and guide people with my psychic abilities and my spiritual knowledge. It is really rewarding to see how peoples lives have changed after a Reading or a Healing Session.

Not one day is the same and so are not any of my clients are the same, they come to me with different concerns, issues and problems. Unfortunately I also hear again and again about other people working in the psychic/medium field and they do more harm than good. This gives the work of a genuine medium/psychic or healer a really bad name and degrades our honest and hard work to a very low level.

I do believe the problem in the work as a medium/psychic is that there are no standards as such which qualify you as a good or bad medium/psychic. Everyone can call themselves a medium or psychic without even having enough experience, qualifications or done the work on themselves.

Over the years I was lucky enough to work with and learn from some very great mediums. People who have been in the field for many years and also who are working to a very high standard. I have seen them working on platform and also in One-to-One Sessions as well as their courses and workshops when I was their translator. During those times I did learn a lot about what it means to be a good medium/psychic and a lot about myself. I also had a lot of readings from all sorts of mediums/psychics some of them are very well-known and some of the readings were really disappointing and a total waste of time and money.

If I had known what I know now, it would have saved me a lot of bad advice, a lot of time as well as a lot of money.

Based on my personal years of experience working as medium/psychic and healer I created this guide for you. It will highlight a few points that you should ask yourself before looking for a medium or psychic. Other points can help you to check if you found the right medium/psychic for you, so you get most out of your reading.

Questions to ask yourself before you start looking for a medium/psychic:

Ask yourself honestly, why you want to see a medium or psychic? What is your motivation? Are you just curious or you experiencing a crisis in your life and you want some further advice? You might have lost a loved one and you know that some mediums are able to give proof of survival after death, which can be very reassuring.

The answer to the above questions will lead you closer to what you are looking for. If you experience a difficult situation in your life and want some advice of course you can go and see a psychic.
Psychics are more focused on working with your energy, the energy of your soul or akashic records.

A spiritual medium in its classic sense, delivers proof for life after death rather than focusing too much on your personal energy in that present moment. The focus of spiritualist mediums is to give evidence of your loved one from the spiritual world and then to bring you a message (in churches) that would assist you on your way.

Unfortunately many people or even working mediums/psychics are not aware of the difference between mediumship and psychic work. This is often caused due the lack of qualification and standard in their work and dependent on the teachers they have learnt from.

Working on a psychic level is a totally different energy than working on a mediumistic level, but both of them are equally important or worth.

There are mediums who will ask why you contacted them and its okay to say that you have a certain problem or question (but don’t name the problem or question) that is the mediums/psychic job to find out. But say it might has to do with your life or you are in need to speak to someone who has passed over into the spiritual world.

Do you want to see a medium/psychic in person or would you be okay to do a Skype session?

Many people do prefer to see a medium or psychic in person rather than a Skype session and there is nothing wrong with that. But our modern technology offers some amazing opportunities we should not miss out.

In general for the medium it doesn’t matter if you sit in front of them in real life or on the other side of a computer screen. Energy doesn’t have any limitations nor boundaries and a reading can be as good as in when you meet in person. I do a lot of Skype readings for people all over the world but also in person and never felt that it wouldn’t work better the one way or the other.

Furthermore I do believe that if we only focus on a medium who lives close by we do limit ourselves and our opportunities to find the right medium for us. There is maybe a medium in Australia you really feel drawn to but you are based in Germany, so why not try a Skype session?

There are also areas around the world where there maybe not many mediums around, especially in some countries where mediums not really common. It doesn’t mean that you should limit yourself rather than opening up to new opportunities.

Hunting for the right medium/psychic

So here we go, you clarified what you expect from a reading if you are looking for a reading about yourself which is then psychic (Life Reading, Akashic Records Reading, Psychic Reading, Soul Reading).

Or you are looking to gain some proof for life after death and needed to hear from a loved one in the spirit world that would be a mediumistic reading. Now you can go out and look for the right medium for you.

1. Ask your friends for recommendations

Best and easiest way is to ask your friends if anybody has ever been to a medium/psychic and could recommend someone. Recommendations are direct experiences and always good to start with. But keeping in mind that not every medium/psychic resonates with the same person. It might was good for your friend but you think it is not the right medium/psychic for you. Trust that feeling and keep on looking.

2. Check the mediums/psychic website

Its important to do some research and best for that is online. You can use google for the start and type in medium/psychic whether in your area or somewhere else. Check out the websites you find and see if it resonates with you.

a) Does the mediums/psychics picture appeal to you?

b) Are there any testimonials or reviews on the website?

c) Does the medium/psychic explain the way it works or does it only talk about

itself and how great he/she is?

d) Are there any contact details to get in touch with the medium/psychic before

booking a reading?

e) Does the way the medium/psychic present itself resonate with you? Or is it

too spaced out?

3. Check the pricing

Often the websites don’t give away a lot of information on the pricing and that is totally fine. It often can mean that the medium/psychic only works with committed people who actually make the effort to contact them.
Or the medium/psychic wants to decide if she/he can work with you after speaking to you. It allows time to get to know each other before a session gets booked.

Unfortunately there is no real guidelines with the pricing, some really expensive mediums are totally crap and some others very good mediums don’t charge a lot. So you can’t say that expensive is always good or cheap is always bad.

Most of the well-known mediums just got a good marketing company but it doesn’t mean that they do extraordinary work. On the other hand side I truly believe that being a genuine medium/psychic is a very valuable work and hard work but many people don’t see it as such.

If you want quality and you set your intentions towards it, I am sure you will be guided the right way.

4. Getting in touch with your medium/psychic

Once you made a decision and you found a medium/psychic of you choice its time to contact them. Do yourself and the medium a favour and have your questions at hand if you got any. So much time is wasted and emails been sent from people to us psychic/mediums with loads of unnecessary questions, pictures and asking for free readings.

Working in this field can sometimes be a bit tricky because people have all sorts of ideas about mediums/psychics.

A genuine medium/psychic will happily answer your questions when you make contact and will help to clarify your concerns if you have any.

If you don’t feel that is the case than you might not with the right medium/psychic then.

Once you happy with your first contact you can go ahead in booking a session via Skype or in person. Keeping in mind that mediums/psychics do this work for their living not for fun, means that you should keep the appointment you arranged or if you have to cancel as early as possible.

Some mediums ask for a deposit upfront as a sign of commitment for the appointment. Ask for their cancellation policy just to make sure you understood everything alright.

5. Be honest

It can happen during a reading that the medium might not picking up on your question or greatest desire. It is important to tell the medium that you are not happy with the reading within the first 10min of your reading. It gives the medium/psychic time to tune into you/or the spiritual world again to see what else is there to talk about.

You should be allowed to ask questions at any time and also keeping in mind that sometimes we hear things that we needed to hear but we don’t want to hear. This can be part of the reading as well. But most important, do speak up if you feel the reading is not for you or its going the wrong way!!!

In general just keep in mind the universal law of like attracts like. If you do your research with the right intentions I am sure you will find the right medium for you.

Our Emotions the Gateway to Power – Nina Bains

The pain we experience is from our emotional baggage we carry from childhood issues and into adulthood such as abuse or any other emotional trauma. These energies stay with us in our subconscious mind and disrupt our lives and cause disease and much of our self-sabotage.

Unprocessed life experiences held in our nervous systems is affecting our bodies. Humans are scared and spiritual beings and we hold power within, once we are connected with our emotions. I am convinced with my own healing journey that our trapped emotions and traumas manifest symptoms and disease in our bodies. Our emotions can set us free from all the layers of baggage that we are holding in our subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind is the storage house for everything that has happened in our lives on an emotional level. When something happens, we have supressed the emotion within the event and buried it in our subconscious mind. When we come across a circumstance and interact within the environment and the buried emotion gets triggered and we react. We suppress our immune system with emotions of the past and this also causes our bodies to become emotionally unbalanced. If only we learned to feel that emotion and release and be free from the pain it is causing our body.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the situation at hand and then get triggered by the emotion that was never healed and it continues to run our lives in the present. Our thoughts and emotions create health problems and then disease in our bodies. How we emotionally feel can manifest symptoms such as our heart rate to increase and anxiety and depression and our stomachs to act up. The emotions are stored in the body and since they are buried in the subconscious mind they are still running our lives in the present moment.

Some tools or skills we can implement into our daily lives to remain healthy on an emotional level.

1. Start by learning to connect with your emotions by breathing into your body by taking a few deep breaths. This is to slow down your heart and you can learn to listen to what your body has to tell you.
2. Scan your body and relax and observe what you are feeling. Many emotions will come up such as fear, anger and frustration.
3. Once a feeling comes up ask yourself several questions. What is the feeling? What is causing this feeling? Where did I learn to feel this way?
4. Start connecting your feelings to patterns and behaviours in your life. Many of us have buried our feelings so deep we have forgotten how to feel them and learn to release them. We have learned to listen to the negative inner dialogue that is keeping us stuck emotionally.
5. As you make these connections in your daily life you will become more and clearer, where and how you buried your emotions. Once these connections are made the healing process will become so much easier. For many of us its past beliefs from childhood that have kept us stuck emotionally and paralyzed us from moving forward.
Life is all about how we choose to respond. We can respond in a negative way or a positive way our bodies react to both. If we can learn to embrace the stressors in our lives with gratitude things can shift and we can discover meaning in our lives. It’s all about how you respond from within. If you respond from the heart without ego and judgement your life can be totally transformed. You’re emotional and physically health is within your power and you have what it takes to heal.

You attract who you are all by the power of your emotional energy. If we can manage our emotions we have the power to change our weight, job and make more money and in return this creates more abundance in your life. If we can only learn to surrender to our emotions and live from within. This power is available to all, we just have to learn how to tune in and manage our emotional health and everything else will start falling in place.

Matthias Güldenstein – Modern Pioneer in Science of Mediumship

Have you ever thought, that science and spirituality can´t go together? Or did you always had the feeling, that they are definitely going hand in hand and if you open up yourself, you will explore a world behind the scenes?

matthias-gc3bcldenstein1Matthias Güldenstein is one of these truth seekers, an endless hunger for answers lead him all over the world. For me, he is one of the modern pioneers that create a new understanding of science and spirituality. Naming the unknown, touching the invisible, trying to get as close as possible to take a look behind the veil. He found the Psi-Verein Basel in 1967 and is still its honorary president. Now the Psi-Verein Basel is run by Lucius Werthmüller. In 984 Matthias and Eva Güldenstein than founded the Psi Zentrum Basel where they created a place for like-minded people to learn, connect, inspire and share.

Matthais Güldenstein is a lovely man, with a big beard that gains all the wisdom in it 😉 Curious eyes and a sharp mind he looks where others don’t want to and explores new territority. A man full of knowledge and life experiences and still carrying an open heart for new adventures and for different opinions and world views. His ability to think outside the box is stunning as well his radiation of deep calmness. When I met him, it felt as my mind could take a rest and I just wanted to learn more, more about all that is there to see.

It wasn´t always easy to be different from others, asking questions that others might don’t want to think of. But only by doing so, you will find the deeper meaning for all that is.
His impressions and experiences are put together in a wonderful book: “Botschafter für die geistige Welt” ( german language)

Matthias Felix Güldenstein – Botschafter der geistigen Welt

By reading this book, the seekers will once again step into new terrain and gain a wider understanding of the metaphysical. Lucky enough, the book is in german, because there are not many of that books in german about mediumship, psychic and the Movement of Spiritualism.

Matthias is one of those people, whose put all their energy into one thing, they really believe in. His and the engagement of his wife Eva Güldenstein seems to be endless. Not only in PSi Zentrum Basel ( as they also went to India and Bali, where they met mediums, shamans and other spiritual workers and learnt a lot from them about spirituality and working techniques. Matthias really feels like home in Bali and is very interested in Bali-Hinduism and its Spirituality. In addition to that Matthias is a part of the International Spiriutalist Federation (ISF) and is committed to spread the word of Spiritualism.

Eva Güldenstein

eva-gc3bcldensteinHis wife Eva is the Regional Representative of the ISF for Germany and Switzerland. When there are more of those people who are putting their heart and soul into something they really believe in and have a passion for, it will be possible to create a wider understanding and a different perception of what life is all about.

The era of a new consciousness has arrived and there are places to go, for all those, who do have questions. There is space to make spiritual experiences with your own truth and there are people who are willing to support and help you. Matthias and Eva Güldenstein are two of them, the offer a 2 year education course in Mediumship in Switzerland. I appreciated to work with them at the Arthur Findlay College with House of Spirit.

Thank you for your lovely company!

Matthias and Eva Güldenstein are living in Switzerland, they work as mediums, teachers, Spirit Art Mediums and organizers of the Psi Zentrum Basel.

Seeker- Stretch


In the silence
in the darkness
while I’m quite
and peacefully being
or maybe waiting for an awakening
from the external world of dreams
there’s a promise of a journey
to a distant destination
that gives a glimpse of a paradise
among the ebb and flow of daily life
like I’m lotus reaching for the light
while still bound to the earth by the mud.

The Poetry of Archetypes are written by Sulaiman Mackay

Sulaiman Mackay is a lifelong lover of writing poetry and has been particularly enamored with it since arriving at middle-age. He has realized it is a powerfully evocative and revealing means of self discovery and conscious development. He started writing poems about archetypes as a way of expressing his inner work, discovering the light and shadow aspects of his psyche, and to explore the energetics of the archetypal experience. He has recently completed an Honours Degree in Creative Communications at the University of Canberra and is currently looking for a way to turn his love for the written word into paid work.
