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.
As mentioned before in this script, you are not on earth without help from the spirit side. There is a spirit guide on your side, and a guardian angel, and there are other spirit beings that are helping you during various parts of your life and aid you in specific tasks.
Your spirit guide is a being that is close to you in the spiritual plane and has excellent knowledge of the tasks that you have set for yourself for this lifetime. Your guide knows your true self better than you can recognize it yourself right now. Your guide never leaves from your side during your entire stay on earth, and is always available to answer any question. It is your guide’s task to be your adviser, and you can completely trust his answers. Of course you have your free will to follow this advice or go a different way, that may lead to your goal, but the advice of your spirit guide always shows you the most direct way, without detours, without taking any misleading path, without dead ends. The only problem appears to be, that most humans do not know about this spirit guide, and those who know, have difficulties communicating with their guide.
Most likely every one of you has heard that silent voice within, that gave you some good advice that you either followed – or not. Of course it is difficult for you to distinguish this silent voice that gives you good advice from your own thoughts. However, with some practice you are able to distinguish these voices. In the beginning it is advisable to put the hand on your heart and feel inwards. When you feel peace and love you will soon notice that then you are hearing the voice of your spirit guide, or thoughts from your own soul. But if you do not feel anything special when you put your hands on your heart or even have an uncomfortable feeling, then you are not in contact with your spirit guide. When you feel low or tense emotions, then it is time to fill your body with white light, as it may be possible that dark forces are trying to influence you, to get you off the right path. It would be generally a good idea to fill yourself with white light before each time you attempt to contact your spirit guide (see chapter 4.1), to avoid any contact with lower beings. Going inside to listen to your guide is an opening up, and protection through light is advisable to be able to work without getting troubled by dark forces which are trying to hinder or prevent your spiritual development. Where there is light, darkness cannot exist, because darkness is the absence of light.
Also on your side there is your guardian angel. Guardian angels have the task to protect human beings from lower influences, so that you are enabled to solve your tasks. It is their responsibility that your material body remains in a usable state until it is time to leave it. You can also ask your guardian angel to protect you during your spiritual work and in daily life, and they are glad to help you as far as they are permitted to, because they cannot over-protect you so that you would not be able to make your experiences. However they will always protect you to the fullest during your spiritual work if you wish so and ask them to do so, and you do your part for your protection (see next, chapter 4.1). Of course, they will not act against the will of you or your soul – so if you are being destructive or abusive towards your body, they respect your choice to do so. Thus, they will not prevent the consequences of such abuse, as you need to experience these, so you can understand the consequences of such behavior, sooner or later, depending on how you are being destructive towards your body – such as smoking, drinking alcohol, eating unhealthy foods, or purposely damaging your body in other ways – or pushing it to the limit of what it can endure. Your body is a valuable tool, instead of abusing it the way millions of humans currently do, it is advisable to take good care of it.
