Our house here in India turned spontaneously into a film location for the production of an advertising spot. And what a refreshing experience it was! It also felt as if my past role as design director was catching up with me. This time, not in a creative role though, but as host, which was rather delightful.
This is a beautiful example of a small temple in our neighbourhood in the Himalayan foothills, that is fully integrated in people’s life (Garhwal region of Uttarakhand, in India). Here some snapshots and videos of local women celebrating – a daylong joyful get together, including praying / chanting / dancing/ food- and flower offerings to Devi. Honouring the inner and outer goddess.
Where we live (in the countryside of the Himalayan foothills) is a primary school which is an important institution for the poorer farmer families. Although government run, it does not receive the necessary funds to get the basics in place: enough teachers, furniture and toilets, for example. My husband and I decided to help. And this is a message asking for your support. Weʼre raising funds for immediate improvements and to refurbish this village school: provide toilets and a washing room, urgent building repair, furniture and other equipment. Private initiative is absolutely welcome, and we will be able to achieve a lot given the current teachers’ openness and resourcefulness.
Rivalry, envy, gossiping and backstabbing amongst women (teenagers and adults alike) are part of a complex that is in urgent need of healing. I looked into the ‘female betrayal’ phenomenon, and once I recognised the bigger picture and root causes, deep COMPASSION arose. We women really have to consciously let go of competition, and do cooperation instead. While the road to complete integrity might be long, we can always make a new choice NOW. It takes awareness though. Here some key dynamics I found:
In my experience, manipulative and regressive behaviour amongst women can be tracked back to their emotional wounding during childhood. Yes, that is nothing new, and you have probably heard this before through other channels. AND YET, still not many women are willing to review and shed light on their past. Feel it, and therewith heal it. Continue reading
While certain visible bacteria and virus infections exist and drain our physial bodies, also invisible destructive occupants can exist, in our energy bodies. Given our era of continuous shifting into higher, finer frequencies, it becomes increasingly clear how many individuals, spiritual teachers, healers, leading personalities and public figures are colonised and not living alone in their body.
What is a negative guide?
A negative guide is a non-physical being that exists in the invisible realms of our multidimensional reality and immerses itself in a living human‘s body system. Such an entity can give special knowledge and / or enhance special skills and powers, which might feed and inflate that human host’s ego. And if the person identifies with a particular ability and starts to own, manipulate and play with it, he or she will loose integrity. Then the „i“ / „me“ or doership becomes important (only I can, I do, I have, I control etc).
A negative guide can be a contact from a past life, an ascended master who loves people with egos or a ‘new recruit’ if someone desires special support on their mission. A negative guide usually hides under the guise or title of a master, guru, god, goddess or rinpoche during one‘s meditation, but has nothing beneficial to offer in the long run, and is more then likely a dark entity masquerading as a spirit guide or saintly voice within a person.

Latest edit: Nov 2018, added section about Sufism
Whether it is the new age healer, the magnetic yogini, the charming channeller or alleged avatar from a seemingly distinguished tradition, whether in Europe, the USA or in India, more often than not, the true character behind a pious smile and seemingly noble mission is that of a narcissist, energy vampire and soul thief.
The spiritual teacher / leader / guru / rinpoche usually speaks eloquently with charisma and verve, and induces addictive feelings of ecstasy. That he also sends energetic hooks and mental slides towards his targets remains for most unnoticed, unconscious. Manipulation techniques are manifold and multidimensional. Abuse happens in tangible form (financial misconduct, sexual liaison), and also on metaphysical level, in the invisible realms of our soul, consciousness and energies.
Descriptors (and depth of corruption) of these individuals vary, but each term aims at pinpointing their deceptive, dangerous character: false gurus, parasitic gurus, dark spirits, spiritual predators, new predators, fake gurus, cult leaders, spiritual parasites, spiritual imposters, soul snatchers, twilight masters, black magicians, asuras, adverse forces, demigods, devadas…
