For each incarnation you only receive one physical body, varying in detail, depending on the tasks you scheduled, programmed for certain abilities (like they say, “it’s in the genes”). Regardless of the tasks it is important for everyone to maintain the physical body and keep it in good condition. As your soul is connected with the physical body, disharmonies and blockages within the soul have an effect on the physical body as described in chapter 9, but this effect is not a one way street. When a human being mistreats or neglects the physical body, this can have an effect on the soul. This occurs especially when a human purposely damages the body or has someone damage it (e.g. masochists). Such a behavior leads to deeper psychological problems affecting the soul, even though the original cause may have been psychological but can also have been caused from mental planes (e.g. curiosity). Here you can see the connection between all parts and aspects of the human being. However, in this case an action on the physical plane has an effect on the physical body which loops the effect to the soul plane, causing growing confusion and destruction of values and morale, engaging in a feedback loop involving this human more and more until possible total destruction of the physical body. This is only an example regarding masochism, but I need to point out that this effect begins when less dramatic actions are taken that have self destructive or at least self damaging consequences. Among such are the use of drugs, but even so-called “harmless” drugs like caffeine, nicotine and alcohol. These have destructive powers which will also affect the soul level and disturb the harmony of your soul. Other causes of effects for your soul through the physical body are unintentional, negligent destruction of body parts or their over exhaustion. The latter does not mean that the physical body should be not used physically or that strain should be avoided, because the physical body can only remain healthy when exposed to regular, but moderate physical exercise. From what I said it should be clear that it is of great importance to keep the physical body as much as possible in a good condition, as damages and negligence can have an effect on your soul.
In order to let a partnership become a beautiful and lasting experience, openness and honesty are the basis, as well as trust. If you want to turn a partnership into a spiritual enrichment and want to live the partnership in the sense of the spiritual path, you can use the following hints and experience how your partnership can become more and more beautiful and fulfilling.
In a partnership two spirit beings meet, that are going to live together for many years. They share housing, eat together and in many cases become parents. When both partners realize, which is the spiritual path for them, and decide to walk it together, this will become an enrichment for their relationship as well as their own spiritual development. Meditations and light work should be done together, to form a small group. The more human beings come together for a protected meditation (see chapter 4.1), the more astral beings will be attracted to the work and are helping by their side, guide light and positive energies to the group which is enhancing the spiritual work. Through this the spiritual training of these humans is pushed forward and gets prepared on the astral level. Of course there is help available to individuals as well, but the effect is stronger in group work. When a human pair devotes time to spiritual work together, that work becomes more intense and promotes advancement. Additionally, exchange of perceived experiences is possible, which is of further help.
In addition to all these advantages for the spiritual development, a partnership of human beings who are on the spiritual path learn through their spiritual development to live together. It promotes tolerance and understanding for the problems and fears of the other, for the weaknesses and faults, also through the awareness of one’s own dissolving of fears and problems. A problem, that hasn’t been recognized, cannot be solved, and thereby the spiritual development can aid in solving problems in a marriage or partnership, and dissolve new potential problems in time before they manifest. Through the sense of connectedness it soon becomes impossible to hurt one another intentionally. For spiritual growth, this sense of connectedness is essential, as it symbolizes oneness of all souls, and of all of creation, and allows humans to experience this connection, first on a small scale with the partner, and upon further development this expands into oneness with All.
Furthermore it needs to be said that living out emotions of love through caressing as well as loving sexual activities is a positive input for the emotional level of human life, and this contributes to a harmonic, balanced life. Living out love helps to balance the lower emotions of people on this planet, because these higher emotions are sent out. This is no substitute for the lightwork for mankind, however this radiates higher vibrations into the emotional plane, in contrast to the frequent low radiations of many humans in these times.
Through a simple exercise you are able to have an advantageous influence on history and the development of mankind, even if this may seem impossible to you. Of course those that have a lot of power over others have their free will, just like you, but it is possible to have a positive influence on their decisions, as well as help mankind in general and raise its vibrations. This might seem impossible or even strange to you, but there are many decisions in the history of mankind that were made by a single person and through this decision history took a certain course. Through this you can see that one single person can have a major influence, but you need to realize that individuals do not need to have a political, religious or official title to have great influence. Decisions of those, who history focuses on, were often made in such a way that it almost could have gone the other way. Through light work it is possible to influence a lot of these decisions to guide them into better direction, so that politicians or other people in key positions may be helped to make decision from a higher point of few. Often it is very hard for those people to make a decision, and such seemingly little and invisible influences like light work can become the deciding factor – as the course of history is the result of mankind’s consciousness and thoughts. By improving mankind’s consciousness and thought patterns, an influence on the course of history can be exercised by every individual human being.
Of course what really counts is not to have a positive influence on history, rather to help raise the vibrations of mankind, to help with its development and ease the transition into the new age. Rest assured, that you yourself as a single being can have an influence on mankind, because all the energies that you send out to mankind will reach their target and are not in vain. More and more human beings are guided to start using light work, so it becomes a combined effort that gets stronger and stronger and will have an increasing effect.
Begin your light work for earth and mankind with the threefold light protections (see chapter 4.1), then you widen the light that you have formed inside and around you and shape a dome of light around your house. Let this dome grow until the village/town/city in which you live is within this dome, and light reaches all beings in this dome. You widen this dome further, until the whole country in which you live is filled with light, so that you send light to all humans of your country, but also to all animals, plants and other living beings. The dome of light increases in size and covers the whole continent. Now the light, that comes from God and is sent out by your request, reaches all beings on this continent. But the dome keeps getting bigger, reaches other continents and the oceans, and finally expands to be a giant sphere around all of earth, her atmosphere, and all beings on her, with a harmonizing and uplifting effect. By sending light to earth you help her with her transition, she has suffered some damage through mankind and now can use your help with this transition. Through this simple exercise you are at the same time able to do your share to help mankind’s development.
When a human being rests the physical body and enters the state of sleep, the soul does not rest. A soul does not sleep, only the human material body needs rest to allow regenerative processes to work, which can only take place during sleep – however, what is mostly unknown, is that sleep is also needed for the soul, although the soul does not rest – but the soul needs some “time off” from being in a physical body. Indeed, this “time off” is the prime purpose of sleep, contrary to the common belief that it only serves to give the physical body a rest, it is rather that the soul needs a rest. During this “time off” the soul enters areas of the spirit world, which some of you call the “dream world”. Many encounters here may seem very real and very earthly. These realms serve the soul to make special experiences, but also to get in contact with beings of the spirit world.
Often humans ask for the meaning of the symbolism of strange dreams, which seem to have no connection with the current own life. Detailed dream interpretation is a fascinating topic, however my recommendation is to go into the calmness of a meditative state and listen inside for the answers, because your higher self knows the meaning of your dreams. Many books have been published which try to analyze symbols, however these should only be seen as guidelines, as each soul is different, thus the meaning of symbols can differ greatly. Individual dream analysis is much more beneficial, however when done by oneself during a meditation, it offers the purest insight.
Often experiences involving fear are getting processed in this state of dreaming, which does not mean this is a way to overcome fear, rather a way to become aware of fear through nightmares, by getting confronted with what has been accumulated. If you encounter a nightmare, become aware that this is caused by fears buried inside of you, that your soul is trying to point out these fears to you, by experiencing what these fears create, on another level of existence. This offers an opportunity to deal with these fears and begin to dissolve them.
Some human beings can seldom remember any dreams, or claim to have no dreams at all, but this is no problem because the soul experiences dreams anyway. An observation of dreams is however important to the soul, because there may be important messages for you that should not be ignored. If you remember anything at the point of waking up, it may be a good idea to write those memories down immediately, so that you can easier return to your memories and later, during a meditation, to clear up some questions you may have or receive information on the symbolism or significance.
Dreams are also of importance because they can contain some information on upcoming events. Therefore, try to remember your dreams right after awakening in the morning (or if you awaken during the night), and observe the memories, write them down and investigate them in a state of inner peace during a meditation. This will allow you to let the experiences you make during sleep be a more active part of your spiritual development.
This letting go has additional aspects in other areas of existence and spiritual advancement, and has effects on many behavioral patterns and actions. This includes bringing letting go also into healing processes, the purpose of guiding light through the body should not be the elimination of the physical ailment, but light work should be used to “enlighten” the problem to clear up the causes in order to allow solving them for neutralizing disharmonies and getting ahead on the spiritual path. Through light work letting go can be practiced by letting go of the reasons that motivated the light work – the pain or disease – and making spiritual development the goal by recognizing disease or pain as a manifested signal from the soul. Simpler said, letting go could be the letting go of obvious motivations like “I have this pain in my body, to get rid of this pain I am doing some light work”. Whoever thinks this way needs to understand that light work can reduce physical ailments, but the purpose of light work for healing is not the reduction of symptoms, but going to the cause and dissolving it as part of the spiritual development. When someone continues to use light work only for reducing symptoms, then real healing cannot take place because a change in attitude has not taken place and new problems have to keep returning as physical ailments, to ensure that the human being recognizes them. The purpose of light work is not to cure physical ailments, but to be an important building block for spiritual development.
The meaning of letting go can also be applied to spiritual work. Healing with light should be seen as letting go, as it is a turning the matter over to the power of light. When I talk about light work, I am not referring to an active work, but a request for the powers of the light with some help of imagination, but the actual healing work is done by the light and healing angels, not by the one picturing the light. But also during meditation letting go can be applied, let yourself be guided by your spirit guide and let go of your mind’s will, and you will experience a more wonderful and teaching meditation than one guided by mental willpower. Of course, letting go can be applied to other areas in life as well. However, it takes practice to learn to let go of your own willfulness and trust spiritual guidance.
When I talk about letting go in this chapter, this is the letting go of willfulness, the desire of the human mind to have control over everything in life. Letting go is not giving up yourself or control over your life, rather a letting go of following obvious motivations from your mind or lower emotions that are not in harmony with the spiritual development of the soul.
From a spiritual point of view, it needs to be pointed out that for procreation a heterosexual relationship would be preferable, but human beings that decide for a homosexual or bisexual relationship should not be subject to despise or punishment. From a spiritual point of view, people have the freedom to choose their sexual preferences. Because of the significance of the sexes a heterosexual relationship is not only biologically more sensible, but also an energy complementation and should be preferred. There are tasks between the sexes that need to be experienced, which is only possible in a heterosexual relationship, while there are other tasks that can only be experienced in a homosexual relationship. It is wise not to judge those who practice homosexuality or have multiple partners, such as a man with two women or a woman with two men. As society progresses and develops, such forms of love and life shall become acceptable, and be no longer condemned, allowing every human their free choice.
Before any spiritual work, Light Protection should be carried out. There are many different methods and exercises. Here I want to show you a simple and very effective method, which is recommended especially in this time of transition, as many dark forces try to lure human beings to abandon their path or at least hinder them in their spiritual work. This is a threefold Light Protection – an exercise consisting of three parts.
We begin by turning to our guardian angel and spirit guide and thank them for the help they have provided. Now we ask our guardian angel to protect us during our spiritual work, to render dark forces powerless, and to support us during our spiritual work. We also ask our spirit guide to lead and assist us.
We become aware of the spark of divine light in our heart, which is our connection to God and our soul. We let this spark grow to a flame that gets bigger and bigger, and finally it becomes a small sun that fills our entire material body. It expands out through our entire aura, our soul, and enlightens it. Filled like that with light, darkness has no room inside of us. This light shines out far into the countryside and is a sign for other astral beings that light work is being exercised, and they rush to stand by your side.
Finally we ask for a beam of light from God which comes to us to form a protective and cleansing sphere. We are sitting in the middle of this sphere and within this sphere thoughts become pure, and all darkness and impurity stays outside. This is a cleansing of your thoughts and energies to keep darkness outside, because darkness has no room inside harmony and light. This is not the creation of a protective wall, instead it is a cleansing, harmonizing, enlightening, as well as raising of energies within the light sphere.
It is advisable not to imagine a protective wall, as such a wall symbolizes resistance. However, resistance gives strength and power to that what you want to avoid by resisting, thus causing the opposite effect of what you are trying to do. A protective shield is a temptation to the dark forces, to find weaknesses in your shield. It is important to realize that it is vital to accept the existence of darkness, and to fill yourself with light, as this is the only way you can truly protect yourself. Remember, where there is light, darkness has no room. Any darkness trying to reach you will only be enlightened, thus posing no risk to you, as it is no longer dark. Fear not the dark – just give it light. Darkness is part of creation just as you are, it is energy at a very low level, therefore do not fight it, but realize that being in and of the Light means darkness cannot harm you. Thus, practice being in Light frequently. This not only protects you, but brings you closer to your true self, as in essence you, your soul, are pure divine light.
This exercise can be completed within a few minutes, or can be expanded as a preparatory exercise for meditation. It is advisable to complete this exercise before any spiritual work, like meditation, light work, healing, and other work that is of spiritual nature. For a general protection from dark influences during this time of transition, it is recommended to complete this exercise at least once daily in the morning, and for optimum protection in the evening before your night rest so that it is also under the influence of light.Please note that a recorded meditation is available for this Triple Light Protection, as an MP3 for immediate download, at a very low cost.

In the process of a soul connecting with a material body, already in the early stages there is a connection established. Already at the time of conception some aspects of the soul get bound to the matter, so that already at that time it is clear which soul is going to use that material body. The more advanced the pregnancy, the more the soul gets connected to the body, so that at the time of birth the requirements for the learning environment “life” have been established, and with the help of a “veil” the astral world and prior lives are usually forgotten. With birth, a new blank page has been opened in the book of life, a page that is, although new and blank, is based upon the past.
Pregnancy is an important and critical experience for life, because here the first experiences of the new life are made, even though most humans cannot remember this part because newer experiences replaced the memory of those. However, embryonic life is an important preparation for the soul, because at this stage the environment is experienced through perceiving emotional vibrations, sounds and movement.
Death is the opposite process to birth, the soul gets disconnected from the body. When it is time to leave the body, separation occurs which again is an important experience for the soul as now consciousness becomes aware of prior lives and it’s true identity as a spirit of the astral world. Also this process has various stages, similar to birth. With the exception of a sudden death (accidents etc.), usually several days before death the soul starts disconnecting, which is a time where the soul prepares to return to the astral world. This becomes intensified during the last hours before death, and at the point which is called death consciousness is freed from the material body. For the soul, this is like an awakening from a long, deep sleep. Similar to the entry of a soul into the body, this process is not finished with the point of “death”. Although consciousness at that time has left the body and has gone to the astral world, further disconnections of the soul will follow, as some aspects of the soul need to dissolve their anchors. This process begins within hours after death and is completed after two to three days.
In case of sudden death and in case of some deadly diseases it may be that a gentle transition of the soul into the astral world is not possible. This can have significant consequences. Damage to the material body through accident, murder, autopsy etc. has effects on other areas of existence, causing a burden to the soul. Guardian angels will help to limit this damage to the soul. Here I need to mention that cremation is not causing any harm if this takes place more than two days after death and the body has not been harmed in any other way (autopsy, embalming etc.). Freezing the body for conservation for autopsy or embalming at a later time has no negative consequences to the soul. (Freezing the body as in cryogenics is useless, as each soul will receive a new body and will have no desire to return to an old “revived” body, even if that was technically possible, especially since the soul may be long reincarnated at that time.)
I sincerely hope that my explanations of death and reincarnation have eliminated or at least reduced fear of dying. Also I hope that the meaning of pregnancy, from conception to birth, has become clearer.
