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 (www.psizentrumbasel.ch) 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!

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.

Saboteur – Sniper

 

The goal is clear
the time just right
the game is in the balance
and I’m feeling strong and bright.
The end is very close now
the aim of all my work
is just about attainable
but I’m just about to shirk
the last little bit of effort
the last little bit of sweat
the last little bit of energy
that will get me to where I want to be.
Because a saboteur sitting on my shoulder
is whispering negative self-belief,
encouraging thoughts of inglorious failure
and inhibiting me from being complete.

Prostitute – Leaking

 

So insecure in the world
that I often feel the need
to sell out myself in order to survive.

This integrity is for sale,
but not so cheap today
because I’m feeling fine
and my worth is determined
by my state of need
and is subject to change.

There is some safety in this self-negation,
and there is pleasure to be found in pleasing the world.
Although fulfilling feelings through giving esteem away
is only a short-term fix for keeping neediness at bay.

The common ground of addiction – Dr. Dan L. Edmunds

Some have endured trauma, others have not. Some have been poor and oppressed, others were born into privilege and had a high level of freedom. Some struggled with learning, some were highly educated.

But addiction arose regardless.

And what was it that they shared in common?

Other than being human, it was discontent, lack of meaning and purpose, and an overwhelming angst leading to that desire to control the uncontrollable.

And for those who overcome, what did they have in common?

An enlightenment of the mind, a reframing of thought, gratitude for each moment, a heart of service, an endurance in struggle, hope with realism, a communion with the other, a willingness to ride the waves of life rather than fight them, using angst as a motivator for what can be changed rather than being overwhelmed and bewildered in thought.

Lover – Subjective

 

I’m throwing myself whole-heartedly
onto an object of desire,
into the vast and complex space between
my ideas and the fabric of reality.

Projecting these passions
with enduring fits of adoration
infuses each experience
with every instant of release.

Otherwise there is no love
in the material of the world.
There is only me,
and whatever matter my love sustains.

This is my world and I am in love.
The world is either full of my love,
or I am lost.

Philosopher – Apple of my Eye

 

How old age has withered you
to a crumpled, dried up core.
The alluring gift of youthfulness
is yours to claim no more.

Once shining red so proud you were
of how your curves did marvel
all the keenest eyes of the shopping wise
as they wandered down the isles.

Pride of place you were on a pedestal
where they polished you once a day,
and sprayed a mist of water around
so the lights would shine on your display.

In the prime of youth you were picked from a tree
then in a shop front found where I made you mine.
Your taste was delicious, nutritious, divine.
Although now as a core your appeal is all recall,
the ideal of a beauty that will live forevermore.

A new beginning – Speech on the 21st century

A powerful speech on the needs and challenges of the 21st Century. Manly P. Hall was a philosopher, sage, writer, author and public speaker. His thoughts are meaningful and thoughtful they offer time to reflect and think what kind of world we want to live in. What is the responsibility we leave to the next generations and what challenges are there to be met? Is it possible to live a happy and free life in the 21st century? Or has humanking gone to far already and nothing can be turned around anymore. Have a listen and let us know what you feel about it. Is there a new beginning?

Manly Palmer Hall (March 18, 1901 – August 29, 1990) was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is perhaps most famous for his work The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, which is widely regarded as his magnum opus, and which he published at the age of 25 (or 27, 1928)

He has been widely recognized as a leading scholar in the fields of religion, mythology, mysticism, and the occult.

Carl Jung, when writing Psychology and Alchemy, borrowed material from Hall’s private collection.

In 1934, Hall founded the Philosophical Research Society (PRS) in Los Angeles, California, dedicating it to an idealistic approach to the solution of human problems. The PRS claims to be non-sectarian and entirely free from educational, political, or ecclesiastical control, and the Society’s programs stress the need for the integration of philosophy, religion, and science into one system of instruction. The PRS Library, a public facility devoted to source materials in obscure fields, has many rare and scarce items now impossible to obtain elsewhere.

In 1973 (47 years after writing The Secret Teachings of All Ages), Hall was recognized as a 33º Mason (the highest honor conferred by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite), at a ceremony held at PRS on December 8th, despite never being initiated into the physical craft.

In his over 70-year career, Hall delivered approximately 8,000 lectures in the United States and abroad, authored over 150 books and essays, and wrote countless magazine articles.
