How to know which vision to go for.
Right now we get the craziest ideas just before falling asleep or just upon waking. The veils are thinner since we called for new visions for this earth. The web of life is knitting a lot of yarn. We are exposed to a vision shower. Ideas pop down from heaven like comets of grace. It’s a universe overdose.
My brain feels like a blackjack jackpot. My visions are sketched out in a two-year plan that lives an Evernote folder called “New Visions.” I will focus on writing “Write Your Future Book” for three months and translate it into English, launch it in October while planning “Write Your Future Book Live” (days of high-voltage creation in May 2014) and a women’s conference in 2015: SHE EXPLODES HER UNIVERSE. I decided I want it all.
However, some of our ideas take years to come true, even longer than the lifetime of our desires. Without obligation to lifelines (my word for deadlines), they can take ages to mature, like grapes on a good vine. And some never come to fruition and burn down like shooting stars.
See, ideas are manifest creation and flow freely. Ideas can fly as free agents, but some visions have destinies that are bound inextricably to our own. Heavenly ideas are made with purpose: their goal is realization.
Cool your smoking brain. Let me show you how to systematize soulfully and identify ideas for hot pursuit.
Your Status Quo Manifestation Map
Here’s a piece of business advice for your idea. Start by picking the right one at the right time. Put the others into a waiting line.
: blank paper
: a pen
: a space open to you and your soul
: 20 minutes for you and your pleasure
Where is your idea right now? This exercise helps to locate where a vision is in the Universe and follow its destiny.
: Get clear on which idea you want to locate. Take it one at a time. Give it a symbol, a name or initials. For example, for YOUR FUTURE BOOK, I use #YFB.
: Draw a circle to symbolize mother Earth in the center of the paper.
Make it as round as she is.
: At the top of the sheet, draw a symbol for heaven, God, the throne of God, the Universe, the higher source. I like to use a crown as my symbol. Leave enough space for your visions in between heaven and mother Earth.
: Bring your idea into your mind. Now move your awareness to your belly. Check the feeling and instinctively put the pen on the sheet where the idea is right now. Draw your idea there.
: Where is the idea? It might still be up in the Universe, down on earth, or somewhere in between. The degree of its closeness to earth will give you information about whether it is wise to:
: get it going, or
: address what is there to do before you can start making it real.
(When I first did this while finding a publisher for Jesus The Book & The Series it opened my eyes. The book was right in the middle between heaven and earth. I was able to understand: You must wait, the seeds are still sprouting in mother Universe.)
:: Ask: who supports this idea? Who helps you?
: Draw your spiritual guides on the sheet. You will feel their support.
: Draw the people who support this idea on the sheet. Where are they?
: Feel the energy of how they support you and write it on the sheet.
There is nothing to manipulate or change.
Ideas grow naturally.
Observing the status quo is eavesdropping on the sounds of growth.
(I see spiritual support for my books. Some first followers and helpers for Jesus The Book & The Series are in North America. My best business advice was to expand my love across continents. This is the beginning. New York twinkles.)
: Now write, draw or paint whatever else comes to your mind that is important to know. Analyze the insight. Receive.
You can do a Status Quo Manifestation Map for each idea. It will show you if an idea is growing nearby or off in the distance. You can also ask about time and note it on your sheet. When will this idea start to manifest? When is the time to plan, concretize and ship it?
I wish you a lot of fun with this; it is a really effective method.
Just in case, some images to help spark your imagination.
Remember why you are here.
Because the stars are in the best position for living our soul’s desires and creating success on our own terms. When the soul infuses what we do, our business becomes soulful.
People who live and create according to their destiny are different. The collective power of the universe is omnipresent in their lives and pops out in perfect moments that manifest purpose. They seem to flow on an invisible current of their life’s vision. Surrounded by a magic aura, their life goes beyond chasing goals to an implicit knowledge that everything they desire is ripe for fulfillment. With a heavenly pulsing of electric joy, they boldly meet challenges, fear and setbacks.
Because it’s your time. You are here and reading this. The cosmic fire is burning. For the record, let’s talk about the origin of the universe. A big silent fire from the beginning of time filled all it brought forth. The Vedic scriptures call it Agni. The fire of Agni is powerful creativity that nothing resists. In the unfolding of the universe, creativity is essential. And so it is for you. Without creativity, the fire of the universe goes out. Without the creative fire, we extinguish like passing stars in the endlessness of a black hole.
Listen. You are meant to matter.
You crave aliveness. The fire is burning. You want to create business and lifestyle with impact. You want to unite heaven and earth.
The creative fire kindles with your visions. You are made of fire. It’s a matter of calibrating our dream of the universal fire with our creative pattern of conception.
The secret is:
each creation is dreamt twice. You dreamt in heaven, where God dreams creation. Your story was written in the Universe. On earth the magic GPS that guides us along our vision is…
Creativity is inherent in the fireball of this universe, it is for you too.
You were created by all elementary particles of the universe.
What we have to do is imagine, rekindle. The fire of imagination and consciousness is the key to visualizing the as-yet uncreated. Stretch back to the stars to the beginning of all, to the primeval fireball. Walk the path of ancestry and embrace the creative potential. Let fire pour the creative powers into you. I can help you do this.
In Write Your Future Book, I lead souls back to the cauldron of creativity, the fireball called Agni.
Remember your universe.
Remember the dream that brought you to earth.
We talk about creation, baby.
Spirituality is our greater context. Authenticity is a space without concurrency. Walk with me. Remember your soul plan.
Meditation to the origin.
Your bigger vision for this time.
Dream from heaven to earth. Stoke the creative fire. Take a fire bath. You have an appointment with heaven. Now. It’s your time. Find healing. Because you want to be big.

After a moment of quiet, will you please share with me what you have seen? I will hold your dreams with respect and tenderness.
Tell me 3 things, love.
(1) What is your soul’s dreaming for this life?
(2) In what way does your soul compel you to serve?
(3) What is the first small step or change you will make in your daily life to harness the energy of your vision?
What if everything that’s unfulfilled in you is just an unforgiven thought?
My ideas are revolutionary these days.
Have our resentful brains drafted the finical crisis; does my cultural anger about Catholicism influence Jesus the Book; does my lack of forgiveness for all religions’ suppression of women through history inhibit my growth as a modern-day feminine spiritual leader? Has our anger about not being seen or acknowledged spun a fabric around our sacred heart?
Perhaps an old wound on the ocean floor of our soul drives our fulfilled life away. It may be obvious when someone has broken our heart, but the stickiest bandages are the ones that are hidden away in our subconscious mind, eating up our desires.
Forgiveness has a thousand layers.
Every strip of unforgiveness lays a gauze of dressed sorrow around our sacred heart. Wrapping the layers protects our wounded pain, but after a while the compression immobilizes our feelings. It becomes strings that hold back the fulfillment of our heart’s desires and covers our dreams with an obscuring mist.
Search for the living inner wound that has stolen its own life from your soul.
“Lord in heaven, forgive us our trespasses, forgive those who have trespassed against us, and lead us to salvation. Not by seeking retribution, but by freeing through forgiveness. Let us see that we are children of your kingdom. Forgive us every moment, where we have forgotten about you. For thine is the kingdom, the love, the power and the glory.” (from Jesus the Book)
Peel back the layers.
Untangle your heart.
Sleeves up. I want it all. My inklings are true, I will go deep. There is no guarantee of fulfillment, but a commitment to serenity in hopes that the Universe may be tempted to plant miracles in pure and fertile ground.
Layer one: We are all human.
In Vienna there is a little monastery. The nuns work in the streets. When they return from the exhausting life outside the silent walls they ritualize a forgiveness every single day, whether the need is apparent or not. “We are humans,” they say, “We will hurt each other, we will make mistakes. But we forgive them at the end of the day, we will not take them to another day to live on.”
: RITUAL OF FORGIVENESS
Detox for your soul: You can create a cure lasting 2 to 3 weeks in less than two minutes a day.
This practice is rejuvenating and builds more than 20 years of good karma in each session.
Close your eyes for two minutes and invite all of the people in your life who are locked in your inner prison. Who is there for you to forgive, to set free? People you share your life with, people you used to know and people you have forgotten about, even people you do not know. Take the chance to de-clutter even past lives.
Be really brave. This is not about open debts. It’s about setting each other free.
Freedom is opening space for bigger love to grow.
Layer two: The conscious wound.
We have been hurt. It happened to me and it happened to you. We remember every little detail when it happened, the look and taste of the environment. When you still can remember all the little gestures of the precise moment you were hurt, you are not done with it. You want to be free? Go back. Remember.
This one is awesome to free yourself from a painful separation, when a business partner set you up to fail, when someone betrayed you, after a long dispute or to cope with painful childhood memories. It’s for crisis and dramas.
: RITUAL OF SETTING FREE
: Call the unforgiven person into your vision. Then say, “Now I am ready to
forgive you.” (Feel the life force behind your words.)
: Join your hands and build a bowl in front of your heart. Fill it with fire from
your heart. Let it burn.
: Say, “I release you. Please forgive me for holding a false vision of you for so long.”
Burn the image of the person you kept in the fire.
: Then contact the soul of the person with your heart and ask them to return
the image of you they have held on to. Reclaim it.
: When the image returns, burn it in the fire. It is not you. Then let the fire give
birth to the real image of you.
: Breathe it into your heart, and become whole.
Layer three: The Liberation
Ultimately we cannot forgive anyone until we have completely forgiven ourselves. This is the last liberation. Your own! Forgiveness strengthens us, instead of weakening. It is not an act of heroism for which you are rewarded, but an act to trust in God again. It teaches us to stop being a victim and to deal with our real emotions. It is the ultimate key to progress in our spiritual evolution.
We encounter pain everywhere. It seduces us into hesitating, collapsing, losing ourselves in grief. It is for us to try to change this by refusing to give into the non-forgiveness.
“Father, forgive them, as they don’t know what they are doing!” With this Jesus was liberated in his most difficult hour, even before guilt could take its first breath. First comes forgiveness, then comes healing.
: RITUAL OF FINAL PEACE
: Forgive yourself. Forgive God within.
: Say, “I am ready to heal.”
: Forgive God. Dare it, try it.
: Open your heart to the universal life force.
: Open your heart for Love.
I pray I have delivered the miracle. May the Universe flow into a river bed in your heart. Deep breath. In.
The universe creates through your heart.
Let’s keep it short:
A real spiritual master creates masters.
He was a healer before.
He will heal you.
He is a realized teacher.
He nurtures and creates teachers.
He is a master.
He will make us masters of our lives.
:: to the feminine
A real spiritual feminine master creates feminine masters.
She was a healer before.
She will heal you.
She is a realized teacher.
She nurtures and creates teachers.
She is a master.
She will make us masters of our lives.
Back when I was a girl I was asked: What do you want to become when you grow up? I said: “I want to be enlightened.” I like the idea. As a revolutionary I like the idea of everybody being enlightened even more.
I do believe times have changed. These days we leave our monastic ashram robes behind and step into the world. It’s easy to withdraw from the mundane. But I do not believe in this as a final liberation. Instead, our destiny is to face life as our initiation path, as a pathway of Shiva (the creator and destroyer). Therein lies freedom.
Measure the masters and feminine masters
by your heart’s temperature.
I must admit I love them, the gurus, the realized teachers who mastered it. The ones enlightened enough to lift me up. I have met them. My heart knew I had to and I searched them out in places leftover from a long time ago. This world has become a melting pot of spiritual movements. My heart likes the real ones.
So I observe them and love them, and then I go back what is the real spiritual path for me.
I have my own personal dictionary of spiritual teachers.
: AVATAR (*my personal stars)
A God incarnation, reflecting one aspect of God or many. Their life force can put our souls into a new life, erase karma and heal with a word. Jesus is one, Babaji, and Sai Baba are others. Never try to analyze them, simply know them with your love. Their light has no limits. Their consciousness is all. They are not limited by time or space. Their teachings are beyond words. They change the destiny of humanity.
A soul who has mastered her Self. Her heaven and earth are melted and not separated. She knows: to understand God you must be a little bit of God yourself. They teach knowledge. Measure them by their devotion.
: SPIRITUAL TEACHER
One who has mastered a domain or an ability. They teach what they have mastered. Are they unlimited? No. But we can learn what they have learned. I love to learn from them what I do not know.
I believe we need more spiritual teachers for life. Followers tend to put their stars on stage to admire. And the sun may shine for a while. But I ask my stars to teach me how to shine myself. I want no imitation but inner wisdom.
You must measure yourself.
You are free to choose your spirituality.
At the Age of 24 I had my moment of enlightenment. It was two weeks of feeling like a bottle of pink champagne. I was beyond death and the love had me back home. God, I want that feeling everyday.
You know what effect it had my life?
I am hungry
I chant the Asato Ma Sadgamaya:
Om, Lead us from Unreality (of Transitory Existence) to the Reality (of Self),
Lead us from the Darkness (of Ignorance) to the Light (of Spiritual Knowledge),
Lead us from the Fear of Death to the Knowledge of Immortality.
Om Peace, Peace, Peace.
This world needs spiritual leaders in every corner.
If you want to be a leader you need to be a healer first.
First heal your inner world, then heal your environment, then lead what you want to change.
Then come out and tell your sacred story.
The fall of to-do lists.
My garden is my master of time. She is in an eternal state, shifting blooms from tension to rigidity, from breaking forms to beauty.
I asked her: “How do you understand time?”
“In cycles of obeisance: from suppleness to realization.” She sings.
We have to revolutionize our relationship with time. There is never quite enough time. We have no time, not enough time, all the time. Time and space define our life. But have we defined them?
“I need to cross items off my lists,” I say to my garden.
She just daydreams and creates anyway; she does not even take me seriously.
“Oh yes, oh yes,” she says. “I will ask the flowers. They may know.”
Turning my productivity into creation.
Each morning I am thrilled by the universal flow. Shivers in showers.
So many great ideas fall into my imagination every day. Too many, too much.
I want to know which is the right idea to pursue.
Here is a recipe that guides me in flowing through with my day with relaxation.
(To start my day and not spoil it from the beginning.)
In the morning I sing the Subrabatham chant. This song awakens God within. Sanskrit makes ma souls swing. I am there.
I flow. A golden and peaceful river of perfection.
There I dream in accomplishment of my day’s tasks.
POPS of joy. Fulfilled.
I ask: What wants to be fulfilled today?
I make a soft structure. Little anchors of the day.
Feel what wants to be done at what time of the day.
Become a river. You will reach the destinations.
I start my day. Flow. Listen for ways to add innovation and creativity. Charge up my resources. Think: wholeness, relaxation, expansion, and clarity in lifelines. Time expands. I pray with the moments; the details are my meditations now.
Not more than 3 in a day. I celebrate each one.
Flow into them until they’re filled up. I want POPs of JAYs. More.
When I fall out, am stressed, overwhelmed, disorganized, I go back to my garden, saying: “We have to start from the beginning. Be patient with me. I promise I am a devoted disciple.”
She offers me a flower.
To me flowers symbolize enlightenment, revolution, regeneration and global thriving.
By naming flowers as tools for time management, I push forward this conversation.
May my secret awaken your secret means of lifting your projects into full potential, to flow divinely every day.
Let us flow.
