The Beta testing stories proofread by my life.
: 20 years ago
My friend Gangaji and I were early fans of Indian Bhajans and Kirtans. Imported from trips to India we were convinced of the recharging energy of singing Sanscrit. (Today everyone knows Satyaa and Pari, and Krishna Das was nominated for the Grammy.) We started a Bhajan group, and when nobody else showed up we began in my living room, just the two of us for two years with endless passionate devotion.
4 years later people were lining up to join the now-official Bhajan singing group in my center once a week. It’s filled with a hundred passionate chanters.

I am a fresh baked Alpha Chi Feng Shui Consultant. I want to sell my passion. I organize talks everywhere possibility shows up. One night I arrive for my talk in a spiritual bookshop, and I wait. Not one soul shows up. Eventually the owner leaves, pointing at the computer guy solving a problem in the back office: “He will lock the door after you.”
I sat for a bit reading, just in case anyone showed up late.
“So what do you talk about?” the computer first aid guy asked me.
“I talk about Feng Shui.”
“So give the talk for me.”
One day later I had a big Feng Shui contract with a head Microsoft Manager in Germany. It turns out the computer guy helped out his friend. He later fills my seminars with many people. My firestart for a very successful business had started.
Do it for one soul.
Change one life at a time.
Give it all.

We launched our #SOULGATHERING. That’s not really true. We launched last September without making a big racket.
A new movement starts now.
Get ready to claim your place in it.
I believe we must gather for small revolutions to change the world. We inspire grassroots movements and create hot networks.
I invite you to a life-changing experience with Ann Moller, Erin Giles, Celyne Lila Nicholson, Sun Ya Fischer, Michael Spiridon, Aliana Devi Schafferer, Parasi Wirbeleit et moi.
We started with one soul.
I bow to my Beta Test Driver and now dear friend Kelly Lynn Anderson.
“I was blessed to do an exquisite wellness retreat in South France at La Lumiere recently, when I first saw the invitation I thought, this looks so amazing and as it turned out it was even more beautiful that I had hoped. It was a life changing event for me and now a few months later the sprouts we began together are ripening into a wonderful new creative time in my life. I especially loved doing puja and meditation with the group twice daily, the synergy helped me to easily drop into my happy relaxed self. The food was exceptional, in many ways the finest meals I’ve ever had. Helping with the preparation was a highlight, cooking lessons with Michael were delightful and informative. I fell in love with the whole team, they gave so much love, wonderful sincere conversation and great spa treatments outside in the Nature Spa with all organic magic earth infused goodness. The best part was all the laughter that only stopped to have a deep discussion or some sacred tears, it was an absolutely delightful journey, I so look forward to coming again.” Kelly Lynn Anderson, CA
I am so looking forward to meeting you.
My Christmas carols.
No way out.
The angels shower sequins and glitter.
Of course they intend to bewitch us.
Don’t take things personal.
Hugs are free. You know the heart wins in the end.
I can’t move around to unpack all the kitsch without sentiments
When unpacking the Christmas decoration from last year.
I murmur little charms.
Hoping God is online.
May all the worlds be happy.
May all worlds be peaceful.
May all worlds be home.
May each soul have a warm place of understanding.
My Christmas wishes are for you.
For your families, your beloved ones.
For you. Deeply.
My Christmas present for you is our first video recipe with Michael Spiridon our soulgathering Chef.
I hope you love it. We are full of new ideas for the #soulgatherings in 2014. I want to inspire you: Cook with your friends and have some red wine from France or green juices, do what you love most.
Where love and food meet, the world peace starts.
Sweets will win. Generation heart food.
Merry Christmas from thefemalegrail.com
I love you very much
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?

tribe of sacred hearts
golden web of all
cosmic héroïnes & heroes
trademarks of wildness
activists of passion

all woven in one love.
Darkness gives birth.
Turns nightmares into lost dreams: war, torture, contamination of nature, the exploitation of lands and earth.
There will never be a blank page.
We have traveled so far.
Our pages are overfilled with sacred stories
Of love and loss.
Instead of writing them anew,
We pray mantras:
Now I feel.
Now I taste.
Now I see.
Now I read.
Now I listen.
3 things inspiring my summer.
They say summer time is the element of fire and the living is easy. Inspiration is the expression of fire. When I am inspired I dance in the joy of life. Impressions on my soul that set me on fire nurture and support my life force. Fire adds the lost fragment to the whole, making natural sense. After all, fire is the element nearest to God.
My younger sister put a cuckoos’ egg into my nest when she gave me the new André Heller biography. Heller was my hero when I was 16. He is a modern genius, the master of fantasy. I learned his poems-turned-chansons by heart. His pop collages of words dared my mind to fly high. His is a life’s journey from cynicism to climbing into the minds of the establishment, disturbing it with expressionism until life approves.
This book rekindled long-forgotten fires in my soul’s garden.
The FIRETHEATRES in Lisbon, Berlin and New York; LUNA LUNA, an amusement park where artists like Keith Hering and Roy Lichtenstein created wondrous booths that dazzled peoples’ inner children; a SEA OF LIGHTS planted against cruise missiles; the CRYSTAL PALACE in Innsbruck, Austria: these are just some babies of André Heller’s life as an creative expressionist and spiritual searcher.
My mind is infected: How can we change the world with art? I am shaking new imaginings from heaven down to earth. Inklings. Wisdom.
The book (right now only available in German, with hopes for future translations)
2. Kundalini Yoga
with Maya Fiennes
A journey through the chakras
This practice pulls the life force back into my chakras, lets me dance in joy in yoga poses. It is a revitalizing inspiration for my tired body to drink in the energy, pouring in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and purple. It is a flow with sacred music to wake up the soul and mantras to calm the jumping mind. Magic glowing guaranteed afterward.
I started with the heart and climbed my chakras up and down.
Courage, Creativity, Willpower, Love, Truth, Wisdom and Bliss.
3. Transformational speaking with Gail Larsen
Inspired by Holy Spirit. Fire talks. *****
You say you are a speaker, messenger, idea maker, trailblazer, leader? Do not miss this. Gail Larsen and her workshop team changed my life.
Now I want to hear from you.
Let yourself give in to the summer’s burning embers and become infected too. Around which sacred fires are you dancing in the joy of life? Please, tell me.
How to turn your deepest fear into lightness
In your most persistently fearful weakness lies your greatest potential, teaches The Path into Light, an amazing transformational seminar by Agni Eickermann that I also teach from time to time. The teachings say: Your signature strength is where you are chronically burnt.
I will let you in on a spiritual secret. You do not actually fear what you think you fear. You actually fear your own power. The illusion can be tricky and create a lot of drama, but let’s straight go back to the teachings for clarity.
Your negativity is the key to your potential
to motivate others in your field.
Your fear is the key to your potential
to show up and confidently shine.
Your being burnt is the key to your potential
to rise again.
Your dark power is the key to your potential
to lead with love and wisdom.
Your failures are the key to future wins.
Your introversion is the key to becoming a leader
Your broken heart is the key to your potential to unite.
The secret of winners is simple. They have the courage to go there – even into the dark places and weak spots. They find courage to set up powerful, bright lights that illuminate weakness, escape dead-ends, transform refusal into action. Winners also usually have a strong orange chakra that leads them where they need to go.
The bigger the barrier, the bigger the incentive to shy away from our light and our universal power to create and shine. But the power of light is a muscle that grows stronger with training. The Path into Light says: Resistance encourages growth.
I just did it one day ago. My frustration grew large and looming again, having swooped over my inner lands of my soul. Admittedly, I still hide my spirituality when I’m in intimidatingly-cool, mesmerizing business districts. Then I remembered the secret of the winners’ 2nd chakra, the navel chakra I taught for many years in The Path into Light. I wanted this groovy feeling of powerful, juicy orange light. I wanted to get back to my core!

I believe that beauty heals our broken hearts. One moment spent in the presence of true beauty will leave us breathless. We know when beauty is awakened from her sleep: we become real again. The universe has us back.
Beauty is the reason why.
When I opened the humble post package Stefano Bolognesi sent me, I discovered a little book. He had written it secretly and silently. I never even knew he had published something.
Poetry was my life’s savior then and is still today.
It had been a chaotic day. I settled down with this treasure in my hands, slowly swallowing those poems, my medicine. Word. By. Word.
I was breathless, and my heart opened wide to the answer to all of my cravings. I was reading true beauty.
The business of Beauty
I am now preparing to continue my “beautiful book plan” and murmur my mantra:
Beauty is the essence of all business.
I will start in the center, with beauty and focus; I promise myself not to stray. Not to veer off course in attempts to please others, but staying true to allow the real to become reality.
I want to share two of Stefano Bolognesi’s poems with you. They are two delicacies from a box of sweets. Eternity is held between the lines.
It’s where God breathes.

Love and all Over Again
Love, she said
and all over again
we went back
of delightful misdeeds
piles of light.
You for Me
For me you are an altar,
a shrine with pointed
domes and whisperings of dawn
and mosaics and steps
dropping down to the sea.
You are the sun of every tremor,
a forest overflowing
with mistletoe and birds in flight,
leafy branch, nest, wind,
fire of blackberries.
Your body is a fan of moons,
a hallelujah of hands,
you are the gold of the seven volcanoes,
poured and forged for me
like the terraces for the waves,
the darts forever in the crazy
equilibrium of your earth.
You are the clamoring chalice
the shell, the ivory,
the flowing fleet of crocuses
and hellebores that cloud over
the plains in the early warmth.
You are this wonderful display for me,
the perfect route of the swans,
the pure geometry of the swarms of bees,
the visionary journey of every shaman.
with fierce Love
THE NATURE SPA IN LA LUMIÈRE
We are proud and excited.
At the beginning of the year God (as I love him) talked to me:
“Do not wait with your visions any longer:
Start to make them real.”
I listened and invited a leader team to realize the first one of my the dreams.
Now we are inviting you!
The Nature Spa is online.
Reserve your place: only 10 women can join us in this extraordinary experience this autumn.
Healing of the feminine soul in the hands of nature and creativity
For women by women
15 to 20 September 2012
The Nature Spa is a wild vision for women. We leave behind all restrictive spaces and enter a nomadic world amidst Mother Nature. No walls. Our wild souls yearn for physicalness. We call for freedom of our feminine emotions. The magic of nature blossoms in the space of thoughtfulness.
A nomadic lifestyle honours our roots.
Massage in tents. Herbal bath under the open sky. No matter what kind of weather, we care for you. When it rains, you can cuddle up with warm blankets under the roof of a tent; when the wind blows, you can ride on its waves in the hammock; when the sun shines, your sensitivity awakens. Let us pamper you with culinary and healthy treasures. Worship of the Earth, as gift and spirit. Every layer that falls feels good. Sensuality and detox. Creative space for you and your soul.
3 or 6 days,
for the first time in September 2012.
Peel time free, time for yourself. Allow yourself to return
to a natural rhythm where magic happens.
10 YEARS AGO.
Choosing my religion.
Create from zero.
If I can do it, you can do it.
“You have manifested your dream,” said Erin when she walked into our office. My new soul photographer had just woken up in our ashram for the first time. She is right, I thought. Awakened, I was telling myself: I have manifested my dream.
La Lumière is my ashram in South France. Last year in June, more than 120 souls from all over the world gathered here to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. My friends, my allies, my companions all share the same idea:
Love will win in the end.
10 years earlier, I arrived here with a deep knowing in my lion heart. My plan: build a house for God and people to reconnect with their souls. My friend helped me to get a mortgage and I sold my car to get started. I had no other resources but my vision, my trust and God. I resisted that it had to be France of all the countries in this world and the French of all global tribes. But God was clear about this and Agni too.
The night before the final decision was made, I had a vision of one of my 4 gurus that guide me through the universe and life. Swami prepared me: “You will go to a Holy Grail place to South France.” (Believe me, in this moment I had no clue what he was talking about.) The day after, when I was ready to ask Agni where my place is in this world, he took a needle and pinned it right to the spot in the South of France where La Lumière breathes peace and love every day now.
Against all odds, my heart knew. I do not believe in accepting what comes easy.
I believe in living what you know to be true. This may include things I do not like or even resist. And this knowing is the reason that all my visions and initiations manifest.
My dream was to build an ashram and inject it with the happiness and holy experiences I brought with me from India. I did it on my own terms. My dream was to unite the contradictions of daily life and spirituality, of modern life and God.
BELIEVE, BELIEVE, BELIEVE.
TRUST IN GOD AND DO WHAT IS NECESSARY.
La Lumiére is the manifested proof that it is possible to create from zero. I started with a sold car and a loan. Miracles unfolded in uninspected ways. With the help of Agni, I discovered my talent to read the Akasha and orders after orders rolled in from all over the world. I read seminars, soul readings and workshops for healers, shamans, visionaries, world changers; women empowerment and whole healing essence worlds were born. I was reading and La Lumière was growing.
10 years of transformation, memories, up and downs, lovers, disappointments and fierce integration.
