Soulevolution and the course of time

I am working as a medium for a while now and I would like to say that I learnt from some very good teachers. These teachers were important along my way of understanding myself, my own potential and what it means to develop my psychic abilities.

As a natural process over the time I grew out of my teachers and looked for my own answers to a subject I lived all my life and never understood.

The teaching and training years are very important to build a solid foundation for your psychic development. But also the years of personal practice and experience will lead you into a new direction of understanding and questioning. Not everyone who starts out to explore their own psychic abilities is going to be a medium. Or even should not start with only this intention in mind. Furthermore let it be a journey to discover yourself and your unlimited potential as human and spiritual being. May the truth set you free!

If we look back in time, people with psychic abilities or supernatural powers can be found during the history of mankind. In ancient traditions we can find the shamans, the healers and seers, the spiritual leaders of a tribe. In those times people reached out to those shamans for advise, help, assistance and healing. People believed that spiritual guidance was important for their well-being and the survival of the whole tribe. The shamans words were accepted and their wisdom respected as it came from the highest realms of spirit. Not everyone was allowed or destined to be a shaman only a few were chosen by spirit to take on that enormous responsibility.

Many shamans went through a long period of initiation, spend time alone in caves and forests to strengthen their connection with the spirit world. They learnt about plants and their use, tuned into the wisdom of the universe and created rituals to celebrate their connection.

The more time went by the more the human consciousness developed and went through different stages of self-understanding and expression. But also our lifestyle and our understanding of the world has changed and been shaped over the centuries rapidly. We as human race have gone through periods of abundance and poverty, of huge wars and peaceful times. Passed through logical and rational thinking and exploration as well as times of religious fanaticism and blind belief. Till we reached our modern times with all its technology and a new way of scientific understanding of the world.

Birth of Spiritualism till the modern times

If we take a look at the 1850 where the phenomena of the “Hydesville Rappings”(read whole article about the Hydesville Rappings here) appeared in America as one of the first official recorded psychic/physical phenomena to a wider audience all around the world.

A family in America received strange rappings in their house and found out that it was a murdered pedlar who was buried in the basement of the house.

Spiritualism found its beginnings and spread like fire in the newspapers in the USA and swapped over to Europe within a few years. Suddenly everywhere so-called physical phenomena appeared and more and more people opened up to another kind of reality. All over the country, especially in America and the UK people started to go and visit seances where there was contact made with the spirit world. Tables started to turn, furniture were lifted by ghost hands and mediums demonstrated their abilities to give messages from beyond. The western world seemed curious to explore what else was there that the eyes could not see and the mind too limited to comprehend.

When World War I and II hit, the bereaved longed for validation for a life after death. Mediumship was there to help, assist and prove what so many were looking for. People found comfort in the messages they received from their loved ones from the other side during a sitting with a medium. Especially in England mediums had a famous status and where well-known in the public. More and more scientist also showed interest in the exploration of the so-called spirit world and gathered together to explore the subject on a deeper level.

The outbreaks and suffering of two great world wars left the world with deep shock, sadness and desperation. Especially in those times, mediumship rose to another level in which the need of hearing from loved ones who passed over was desperately needed.

A lot of comfort, understanding and compassion was spread with the work of spiritualist mediums and their continuous efforts bringing messages from beyond.

Sadly even during those times, ignorance joined the table and many mediums suddenly were said to be fraud. Therefore many mediums were jailed or put on the Society Stack. The masses pulled away and believed more in what has been written by people who claimed to prove mediumship non-existence. Rather than following the path of self-exploration and experience. Luckily the Spiritual National Union achieved to release the The Witchcraft Act of 1735 remained in force in Britain well into the 20th century, until its eventual repeal with the enactment of the Fraudulent Mediums Act of 1951.

The Fraudulent Mediums Act 1951 was repealed on 26 May 2008 by new Consumer Protection Regulations following an EU directive targeting unfair sales and marketing practices.

It allowed to give mediumship a legal status as a religious belief and classified the demonstration of mediumship in public for entertaining purposes only.

Even today the SNU (Spiritual National Union) offers quality training and a standard for mediumship with the focus on religious point of view more than self-empowerment or the exploration of the soul as individual.

The 60’s – Another consciousness revolution

Another big impact for the raise of consciousness or Soulevolution took place when the american invasion in Vietnam escalated in 1961. Many students, peace activists and leftist intellectuals protested all around the globe together. Slowly but steady the Hippie Revolution, New Age Movement or the Anti-war Revolution started. The first time after so many years that no longer the people would accept cruelty, disempowerment and the torture that another war could bring with it.

Spirituality reached a new expression and as a natural evolution 20 years after the second world war spirituality and religion were finally disconnected. No longer spirituality was tied to a visit of churches and following dogmatic point of views. Furthermore it reached out to masses, to join together and experience spirituality on a totally new level. A powerful movement that led people into self-exploration, inspired new thoughts about humanity combined with mystical and esoteric traditions.

During those times many new ways of exploring own consciousness with psychoactive drugs, music but also spiritual techniques such as yoga and meditation found a place into society.

 Unity, Humanity and equality were the new values this movement asked for and would do everything to make itself heard.

Social Ignorance, Materialism, Egoistic behaviour no longer should be the driving force for a society that was too blind to see. A social system that was build up on the trauma of two world wars and the idea that material safety and security would be the only answer for a cruel world.

During those times people of these movements were not afraid to experience themselves in other realities, to step over social restrictions, rebellion and finally the idea of another way of living together as one human race was born.

 

While the 50’s still focused on new technologies and the comfort of material possessions as an expression of success in life. The 60’s blew this attitude in the wind. Sharing and caring was the new way of life to bring down the concept of separation and inequality.

After the Vietnam war ended in 1975 much was gained such as the Civil Rights Movement in America which allowed black people the same rights as white ones. But also the American Feminist Movement found a new voice and shouted over traditional boundaries. The world had changed and new ideas still moved at the surface of this new society. Unfortunately slowly the hippie movement was soon replaced by the new hunger for oil and its material potential. People slowly turned their faces towards material security again and the stock market offered once again new possibilities for money investments.

New technology especially the first mass market computer in 1964 once again should change the live of so many and as we know today – the world itself. The hunger for more new technology possibilities grew with every step and was based to bring a new understanding for the outside world.

But on the other hand side Spiritual teachers and gurus had a high demand in the early 1980s which came from the revolutionary area of the 60s. Love and Peace seemed to be the only answer to the way of moving humanity forward into a new generation of compassion and understanding for each other. The 80s finally started to bring this understanding for a new fruition. Yoga, Aloe Vera, Meditation, Alternative Therapies and a holistic approach slowly sneaked into the consciousness of a wider audience as a result of the desire for a better understanding of the world and the self.

The 21rst Century – The urge to return to the roots

Coming now into the 21rst Century I feel our urge to return to our spiritual roots. We are very much a society that is fed by the ideas of what screens have to offer. Our food is processed, the people we call heroes are celebrities and nature is something we might now and again experience if we make it away from the comfort of our couch. Reality is something we mostly perceive through the media and its negative news broadcasting. Therefor we feel the world is a place we should be fearful of and which we try to avoid as much as possible.

The world around us might have changed but deep within us we still are the same. Apart from that looking after our bodies in regards of enough sleep and food to keep them alive our soul slowly is dying from the disconnection we created with our environment.

We experience more mental health issues than ever before. Suicide rates are rising daily and the number burn outs can’t be counted anymore. We got everything on the material level and still suffer, how is that possible?

A new understanding – the power within

The answer to that might lay in the understanding that we are more than our bodies and our brains. That there is something within us that doesn’t care about material possessions because it is aware that they are this is an illusion and wont last forever. This something is called your soul. It is that eternal part of yourself that part of your consciousness which survives physical death. The soul longs for true connection with the world, nature and others. That something within you telling you that even if you achieved all you ever dreamt of you might not be happy or healthy.

That something that reminds you that you are not your body, you are not what you have and how many people will praise you. But that silent voice within you saying: “What is it that you truly love? What is it that you are living for? What is it that really counts?”

Humanity might be at a turning point these days once again. Realizing that we can’t go on living like this. We can’t destroy nature and pretending we are not a part of it. We can’t start wars and then turn our back when people are affected by it do ask for help. We can’t deny our personal and global responsibility. On a more personal level this new age will not allow us to get stuck in the wrong relationship, job or life. No longer we can deny our own psychic abilities which are there to guide us on the right path.

No longer we should deny our personal power – the power from within.

Showing us that there is so much more than meets the eye.

Reminding us that we are here to evolve, that we are a spiritual being having a physical experience. Our psychic abilities that do tell us that there is no limitations. Nor space or time. We are able to heal ourselves and others and raise above the detachment of only a physical and material existence.

The healthy integration of these insights could lead to a new Revolution – The Revolution of the Soul.

May the exploration of our personal psychic abilities be the gateway to a new understanding of the self and its limitless potential. I truly wish that more people will discover their unlimited potential and break free from centuries of brainwash and torture, self-denial and giving away their power.

May the exploration and development our own psychic abilities help us to find the truth.

To understand our limitless potential and followed by the understanding that we came here for a reason. To live, explore, expand our very own consciousness and share it with the world.

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
matthias-felix-gc3bcldenstein-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!

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

Psychic development – the different stages to learn and grow (video)

Every new skill we learn follows certain stages of development and growth. The more we practice, read, study and experience the more we come in touch with all that we thought we weren’t able to do. This principle also applies for our own psychic development.

Yes there are different stages and yes we have to go through all of them to become a master of our skills. This video wants to add some more understanding on these different stages and what they made of. Slowly but steady we will understand where we are with our psychic development and where we could go from here.

Julie – The law of Psychometry Influence ( 34. Universal law)

The law of psychometry influence is the law that indicates that mind can influence matter but also that we are influenced by matter. Psychic mediums are able to use an object to gain information about their sitters/clients. So called psychic detectives can use objects to assist the police with information about someone who has gone missing.

This law is all about the possibility that our own energy can leave an energetic blueprint on objects we wear but it also says that the out environment does influence our personal well-being. This science or art is very well-known in the china and is called Feng Shui.

Julie Jurgan is a medium, healer and Soulactivist. She offers One-to-One Sessions ( Readings & Meditations) via Skype and in person. Her healing sessions are available in person as well as via distance. Her healing sessions are powerful and transforming.

The Difference between mental and physical mediumship

The difference between physical and mental mediumship:

The early forms of mediumship have often been of physical nature. This was necessary because the people might have not realized the spirits as what they are. Discarnated spirits whom consciousness outlived bodily death.

During the years, the perception of the people changed, as well as the consciousness of discarnate spirits. For this reason, mediumship was able to unfold in different forms. So it happened, that we today have physical mediumship and mental mediumship and both are really fascinating.

Physical mediumship

Physical mediumship/ phenomenon are mostly taking place in a meeting of some (2 or more) people. This is meeting is called a séance. Everyone can take part in such a séance, no matter of race, colour, or even belief. By taking part in a physical phenomenon séance, the people are able to experience the spirits energy by one of their five senses. They can become aware of the spirit, by hearing Rappings, such as the Hydesville Rappings in 1848. They could see the spirits energy at work in different kind of phenomena, such as Materialisation, Percussion, Apport, Telekinesis and others. Because these phenomenon can be seen by everyone, also from people who do not even believe in such things, it is the most powerful evidence to proof life after death.

Every Sitter, who is taking part in a physical mediumship séance plays automatically an active part of the whole phenomena. Because for producing a physical phenomenon a medium is always needed who allows the spirit to work with it or through it. To make a physical phenomenon happen the produce of ectoplasma is needed. This process needs a lot of energy, because of that all the sitters are helping with their energies too. During a séance, the medium enters a deep state of trance. The séance mostly happens in a darkened room and depending on what kind of phenomenon is taking place, a red diffuse light is used to illuminate the mediums face.

Short explanation of different terms, used in the text above:

Materialisation = Is the creation or appearance of matter from unknown sources. It is the transformation of something abstract or virtual into something concrete and tangible.

Percussion = Physical phenomenon. Used by the Spirit communicator in the Hydesville occurrences

Apport = “Are objects brought from one room to another or from a distance to where the medium is, by invisible agency.” – Arthur Findlay – On the Edge of the Etheric page. 57

Telekinesis = describing mental movement or motion of solid matter, abbreviated as PK and TK respectively, is a term coined by publisher Henry Holt[4] to refer to the direct influence of mind on a physical system that cannot be entirely accounted for by the mediation of any known physical energy.

Ectoplasma = A substance drawn from the human body by Spirit operators for use in the production of phenomena.

Mental mediumship

Mental mediumship is different from physical mediumship. It is more an inactive process, but here also a medium and its clear mind is needed. The medium does not need to go into deep trance, but in a higher sphere of consciousness, which can be reached by daily training of meditation and sitting in the power. The more a medium is trained, the easier it is to communicate with spirit.

In mental mediumship the medium opens itself to the Spirit World and is able to communicate with discarnate spirits ( if they wish to do so – discarnate spirits still have their free will). This process cannot be seen as in a physical phenomenon. In addition to that, the medium can sense the spirit drawing closer, but the sitter won’t see or sense that. The medium senses spirit in forms of psychic faculties such as clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience and others.

Short explanation of different terms, used in the text above:

Clairaudience & Clairvoyance are the powers some have of hearing what to others is inaudible and seeing what is normally unseen. Both are due to the etheric structure of the ear and eye functioning abnormally, and thus the organs can catch etheric vibrations.”– Arthur Findlay – On the Edge of the Etheric – page 57

Clairaudience
=The ability to hear discarnate Spirit voices.
Clairsentience = is the ability to hold an object or touch someone and sense the energy surrounding that person.

Paul Jacobs – Spiritualist Medium, Teacher & Mentor

Before I met Paul Jacobs at the Arthur Findlay College I did not know much about mediumship nor where this path would take me. I only knew that I had this urge, this feeling inside my chest and I needed to find out what it was all about.

paul-jacobsPaul Jacobs is a spiritualist medium, teacher, philosopher and mentor. He works at the Arthur Findlay College in England and at the Zwaanenhof in the Netherlands. He also runs his own spiritual Center called “House of Spirit” in Hannover, Germany. For many years Paul went through his own spiritual transformation and development alongside of Gordon Higginson to become one of the most respected mediums.

His passion for the work with spirit has encouraged many people to develop their very own spiritual gifts all over the world. Only if you would bring God into your very own mediumship you would reach your potential to realize that you are infinite.

We develop the power to unfold the gifts of THE SPIRIT

– Paul Jacobs

Being of service, inspiring and touching the hearts of so many is Paul’s mission and his teaching reach out to those who are ready for more. It is not all about you and your ego, it is about the communication, the reunion of the two worlds that have been separated for such a long time and the natural unfoldment of your own spirit.
Nowadays more and more people open up to a new way of consciousness, another reality and do realize that the highest power lies within. Along this path, Paul and his team of great mediums such as Biagio Tropeano, Andrew Byng, John Johnson, Chris Drew, Jose Gosschalk, Jacky Wright and others are there to help and assist you to explore and unfold your own spiritual gifts of mediumship.

Through Paul I learnt what it meant to work on myself and to believe in what I felt inside of me. I realized the more I would work on a clear understanding of myself the clearer the communication with the spirit world would take place. This was only the beginning of my very own spiritual awakening journey and suddenly I found myself exploring a world that I never imagined would exist.

The work with Paul and his team guided me deeper into an understanding of a truth that I didn’t learn at school. It showed me a world that had no limits nor boundaries, where eternity is not only a word but a place where I would find myself. It took me far behind my old belief systems and opened me up like a horizon on the sea. Suddenly I found myself stumbling from excitement to shock, realisation and desperation. Wondering, asking what I have been told all those years. That I have been afraid of death, suffered from my separation with God and my loved Ones who passed over to the spirit world and denied my very own soul expression for so many years. Within this moment the veil of my own blindness lifted and I was able to see clearly, to touch the spirit within.

I am very thankful that the universe has guided me into the right direction and I was able to learn discipline and support, experienced challenges and encouragement, opportunities and limits, laughter and tears, inspiration and transparency. And most of all I found a place where I felt very much at home for the first time in my life. Realizing that my inner calling was my spirit who wanted desperately to be set free.

When I look back today I can still remember the moment when it felt as that I would lose everything, everything that I thought was my so-called reality. Only to open up to a new perspective of life and death and a truth that should become my new way of life.

The spiritual path is an exciting way, the more we explore ourselves the more we lose our old selves. This can be a very frightening process and it is good to know to be in good hands. To be guided by people who have walked the path themselves before and know about the ups and downs. People who still thrive for more, because the passion comes from within and only if we can keep that fire burning we are able to be a light for others.

My life has changed completely and I would like to thank you Paul Jacobs for being the spark that ignited my soul.
