When We Flourish…

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
last month was a very big time of personal transformation in my life. One of the unexpected side effects of the many inner and outer movements that involved, was the loss of my computers hard drive. While that in the first moment does not sound like good news, it included the blessing that I found a copy of poems which I wrote more than 20years ago. I started reading them and remembering how deeply blessed I always have been, to be guided by music and other art during all my life.
One of the ways how this directions have been transmitted to me, is thru writing down poems or song lyrics. Mostly I brought my creations to light by automatic writing, a natural ability I am blessed to posses, which allowed the compositions to come back to me as fragments of my own understanding of the world in that moment in time. Allow me to share here, one of the poems in English and the original language German. If you enjoy the read, you can find more of my past creations on the new page “Poems by Edith Boyer-Telmer.

BLOOM
When we flourish,
Under painful cracking, the seeds husk breaks apart,
And the delicate stem of the wonderful blossom we once will be,
Makes its way into life.

Fragile, a little weak still, and easy to bend,
But fully confident, hopeful and thirsty for life.
Ready to grow, learn and do all that is needed to unfold to our true size,
To develop our personal beauty and full maturity.May the earth nourish me
The sun steer my inner fire
The water smooth my feelings
The wind blow all my obstacles away

And may spirit give me the faith,
That I will succeed again,
Because the lotus already blooms within me.
Edith Boyer-Telmer September 2003

ERBLÜHEN – GERMAN ORIGINAL

wenn wir erblühen
bricht die schale des samenkorns unter schmerzvollem krachen entzwei
und der zarte stamm der wunderbaren blüte die wir einst sein werden
bannt sich seinen weg ins leben

zerbrechlich, schwach noch und leicht zu knicken
aber voll zuversicht, hoffnung und lebenslust
bereit zu wachsen, zu lernen und alles zu tun das von nöten ist unsere wahre größe,
unsere schönheit und reife zu entfalten

möge die erde mich nähren
die sonne mein feuer entfachen
das wasser meine gefühle umspühlen
der wind alle hindernisse davon wehen

und der grosse geist mir das vertrauen schenken,
daß es auch diesmal gelingen wird,
weil ich die blüte bereits in mir trage.
E.B.T. September 2003


Dear Ones, I hope you enjoyed my little poem about this beautifully vulnerable moment of my inner awakening; long back in earthly measured time, but with timeless meaning and truth. I hope you feel the blossoming of you own inner self unfold beautifully a little bit more every day of your life, and that you may bless the world with your authentic light.
Love and Blessings!
Edith

What The Angelic Realms Have To Say About 2017

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
I am so excited for all of us, to welcome this magical new year of manifestations from the heart, changes to the core and new beginnings for all of us. There are lots of things to take care of for all the month to come, if we want to steer the collective human boat into manifesting the Golden Age of Aquarius. Thomas Keating ones said: “For human beings, the most daunting challenge is to become fully human. For to become fully human is to become fully divine.” And that is also how we turn into fully powerful co-creator with the universe.
Over the last few days the Angelic Realms have been especially active again and transmitted lots of information for the year ahead of us. Time to get active and put all the things we learned so far into action, and time to listen even closer to the guidance of the divine blueprint for this world. Here are the 3 numbers that came up as leading forces for of the year 2017.

Angel Number 1133
Angel Number 1133 is a powerful message to give our fears, doubts and worries to the angels and the Ascended Masters so that they can be transmuted and healed on our behalf. It tells us, that we are fully prepared in every way to fulfill our soul mission and divine destiny, and to make a move forward on that. It’s a sign to trust that the angels support us completely and surround us with love and protection at all times. The angels and universal energies are working on the next direction for our highest good!! The Number 1133 is an invitation to develop the courage we need, to fully express ourselves and live our life with enthusiasm and optimism. Living life with joy, passion and purpose will manifest our true desires. The angels blessings are with us!! Increase your spiritual development and awareness and use your knowledge and wisdom to uplift others.

In relationship to the energy of the year 2017, this number is helping us to develop more faith in our personal path, and to translate this faith into divine action. For the ones who are working with the Angelic Realms and the Archangels, it is also an invitation to trust even deeper in this divine partnership.

“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. ‘Time’ for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.”
— Roman PaynemAngel Number 1199:
This is another powerful combination as it unites the Master Number 11, that is responsible for the most magnificent manifestations in harmony with the bigger picture; our ability for self-leadership; our capacity to create our personal world; the inner drive for new beginnings and our authentic self-expression, with the scream for wisdom and authentic living in this world. It is the number of completing cycles in our life, that are according to the Hermetic Law of Cause and Effect now finishing. It is an engine for the adventurous desires of the spiritual warrior in us, to break into new dimensions and an invitation to keep rising the vibration in the world.
This number is pure magic and encouragement to tap deeply into the collective energy field of the year 2017. Its all about guiding ourselves out of the dark places of our soul, and into the light of the self creating, self-empowered divine co-creator. Religions will loose on importance as well as political leader and other power figures, and doors will open to the inner sanctuary of wisdom, if we trust our path and guidance.

“You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.”
— Anthon St. Maarten

“Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity by controlling nature, external and internal. Do this either by work, or worship, or psychic control, or philosophy – by one, or more, or all of these – and be free. This is the whole of religion. Doctrines, or dogmas, or rituals, or books, or temples, or forms, are but secondary details.”
— Swami Vivekananda

Angel Number 1717:
Seeing this combination is the amazing message, that we have reached a stage in our spiritual development, where the manifestation of our soul’s desires becomes our natural ability. Our birth right to be taken care of by the power of our soul, has returned. Our authentic ways of living our life values, and commitment to create manifestations guided by the higher heart, are now paying off. The angels applaud our efforts, and let us know that we are on the right path. Focus on what you love and what fills your heart with passion, stay present and accept new changes or challenges with a peaceful mind.

Dear ones, if you see this number combination on a regular basis, than you are at the blessed stage in life, where you are manifesting your life from the ease of being. Don’t worry if this is only true so far for one or two layers of your life, the rest will come over time as long as you keep up with the good work and keep growing in faith. Allow yourself to be the blessed child of the universe and the earth that you are, and know that your souls most fiery desires are already fulfilled.

“Divine sound is the cause of all manifestation. The knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe.”
— Hazrat Inayat Khan

“How may paintings have preserved the image of a divine beauty which in its natural manifestation has been rapidly overtaken by time or death. Thus, the work of the painter is nobler than that of nature, its mistress.”
— Leonardo da Vinci

“Fully inhale your dream and completely exhale manifestation of it.”
— T.F. Hodge
inDear Ones, I hope you are passionately crazy for the magical blessings this unfolding year is promising us. What ever it is you always dreamed of realizing in this world, a creative project, a new career, a brand new love life, this year is offering it all, as long as you have put in some positive work in the year that just past. “To witness miracles unfold in your experience, count your blessings and be thankful. Perceived small blessings accumulate to be the most powerful.” — T.F. Hodge
Love and Angelic Blessings!

Why We Need To Have Strong Believes And Keep Our Mind Open

open-mindby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
many of you, who are reading my posts on regular base, know me as a person of strong believes and full of faith for the unfolding of the Golden Age of Aquarius. Born in the star sign Aquarius, I am used to receiving visions that are reaching far out in “time”; and born as the Mayan sign E or EB – The Road, I am supposed to understand the design of the path that collectively gets us there. So most of the time my inner clarity combined with my personality, lead me to strong opinions and a feeling of personal stability.
Now that it a really good place to be in life and it feels perfectly harmonic to live the life I created for myself; and it is a dangerous place for any human being to stay and get lazy in relying on opinions and values build long ago. And this is where open-mindedness is coming into the game. The more we are “oh so sure” in our own world, the more we need people from other countries, religions, ethical backgrounds and opposite life path’s to keep us wide and receptive. And this is a crucial trait to let our mind sour.

The ability for open-mindedness is defined as a continuing receptiveness to new ideas and controversial perspectives. It is closely relate to our ability to express emotional intelligence in our exchanges with others. People who live open-mind in everyday life, will rather show a tendency to be interested and respectful to believes very unfamiliar to themselves. They will maybe even express their gratitude for the possibility to be changed by the views and different knowledge the other shared.

For the spiritual seeker it might even go as far as an openness to allow each of this challenging new thoughts, to rattle our life and enrich our ability to embrace humanity in its endless extensions. After all we can create from every encounter in our life, a new sacred geometry of higher understanding in our energy body. That is not always a comfortable process, but than we need to remember that “life begins at the end of our comfort zone”!!

So lets see what wise men over the ages had to say about the advantages of living life with an open mind:
“Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
George Bernard Shawc“Always be respectful and open-minded when listening to another man’s beliefs. What you reject today could be your mantra tomorrow. Man’s evolution is all about transformations. An unexpected experience you have one day can change you forever.”
Suzy Kassem

“The thing is, it’s very dangerous to have a fixed idea. A person with a fixed idea will always find some way of convincing himself in the end that he is right”
Atle Selberg

“If someone is able to show me that what I think or do is not right, I will happily change, for I seek the truth, by which no one was ever truly harmed. It is the person who continues in his self-deception and ignorance who is harmed.”
Marcus Aurelius

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.”
Albert Einstein

“Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won’t come in.”
Alan Alda

“A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open.”
Frank Zappa

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”
Mark Twain

“It is never too late to give up your prejudices”
Henry David Thoreau

“The only way to change someone’s mind is to connect with them from the heart.”
Rasheed OgunlaruaDear Ones, I hope you feel inspired right now to challenge yourself to as many mind altering experiences and encounter, as you possibly can allow without loosing your stability in life. Go step by step, be kind to yourself – there are days where we can handle big steps and others for small simple adjustments. Allow me to end this article with a quote from John Maynard Keynes “When my information changes, I alter my conclusions. What do you do, sir?”
Open minded blessings!

Are You A Truly Spiritual Person – Or Simply Full Of It

guihjby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
just some days ago, I shared in my post about the Food Project “Konojel”, that in my wonderful second home; San Marcos La Laguna, Solola, in Guatemala; we are living in a wild mix of world people. The San Marcos population is made up of original Mayan people from the tribe of the Kaqckikel, and a colorful mix of foreigners from all countries of the world. Many of this people consider themselves part of the New Age Scene, a tribal movement or travel the world as alternative healer. Life styles and philosophies of all kinds are practiced in our little town, bringing the positive and the negative side of a spiritual life to the surface. So when I ran into this article raising the question, how much spirituality is truly translated in divine actions in the many new awakening movements, I felt like this is truly worth questioning
!!! Let me know what you think, and what type of feelings this article has created in you! I hope you enjoy the read!!
Miraculous Self-Discoveries and
Blessings ;-)!

Edith

This is an expect from the article “sei-spirituale-o-pieno-di-te-stesso”, written & translated by Giulio Pietro Benati
We hear it all the time: “I am spiritual, but not religious.” Recent human history has probably seen more conversions to spirituality than any other era. However, what does it mean, “being spiritual”? I grew up an atheist, with the certainty that religion was the opiate of the masses. The Catholic Church, in particular, looked evil to me: opulent, false, opportunist. It burned witches, molested children, and fought holy wars against imaginary enemies.
However, I felt an inner calling to look for something more than sheer matter. That’s why I started to seek. I found a yoga school in Thailand that taught me several techniques meant for the attainment of the infinite without the need for any divinity (or, at least, that’s what I thought). At that school, I observed that for many people spirituality means practicing yoga, reading books about self-development, and speaking about being spiritual. Even at that time, I felt that something was wrong with this idea of spirituality (which I considered really shallow) compared to the lives of the saints and mystics who followed many genuine ascetic traditions.
Today, when I take a look around, I can only confirm what I saw seven years ago.5681“Being spiritual,” according to the latest New Age trends, often includes everything that I said above, plus some other ingredients like dressing up as a “spiritual person” and sharing a “spiritual look” on Facebook or becoming vegan/vegetarian and pointing the finger at anyone who is not.
Appearance overcomes essence, facade overcomes truth, and falsehood pervades everything.
I don’t want to say that doing yoga is something bad. It is totally appropriate to follow yogic principles if you follow them with honesty and compassion, just as you are perfectly entitled to have faith in Jesus Christ, Buddha, or Muhammad if you live with the open heart that a true seeker should have.
The bad thing is if, on the other hand, you hide behind yoga or religion in order to justify all the shit you spread around. I’m strongly convinced that an aggressive attitude against non-vegan people masks the same tendencies that brought about the Inquisition and the burning of witches in the name of God!

Substituting One Dogma for Another
Many seekers leave their parents’ religions just to substitute one dogma for another. Instead of considering pre-marital sex a sin, they consider eating sugar, not recycling, or using a car instead of a bike sinful. As in the past, the fundamental tenets of a genuine spiritual path (truthfulness, freedom, and unconditional love) are lost along the way. In other words, the everlasting happiness independent of the external world is overlooked.
And sometimes, that spark of the Infinite that you tasted makes you feel special, favored. Suddenly, you are right and the rest of the world is wrong. You are the special child of God, your path is the unique, authentic one and anyone who doesn’t follow it is making a mistake (and, even if they are following it, you are doing it better!). Chanting Sanskrit mantras, not cursing, always being kind (even if it’s a false kindness), having symbolic tattoos, and becoming vegan are not true signs of spirituality.
However, this is exactly what the vast majority of “spiritual people” do nowadays, thinking that this is enough to be elevated, special, and dear in God’s eyes. They think these actions make them better than the rest of the world. Obviously, I don’t think that every single person who walks the spiritual path today is doing it so blindly. There are undoubtedly people who are sincerely seeking the Absolute in their lives. However, from what I have observed in my (short) experience, an overwhelming majority of those who define themselves as spiritual have a very distorted conception of themselves and of the path they are walking.khkjiThe Spiritual Path Is the Path of the Common Man
If you are REALLY spiritual, allow yourself to simply be you. This “spiritual you” should be kind, compassionate, and gentle (although it is said that many mystical people have tremendous personalities 😉 !). Take care not to fall into the trap of dogma; you don’t have to fight to be like that. You don’t have to force yourself to be spiritual. Even more, you don’t have to strive to appear spiritual. You are already spiritual! These virtues are already in you!
What you have to do is simply decondition yourself and recognize the truth deeply embedded in yourself. This is what the spiritual path should be—simply the search for your true nature. Spirituality simply means to be authentic with yourself and others. Pay attention, though. It is not easy to be authentic! In my whole life, I have met very few people who are truly authentic. Being authentic means being open, not being afraid of the judgment of others, trusting in the universe. It means to believe.
