Notes from Oma's Desk


This is the third in a collection of pages where Oma is sharing some of the things that cross her desk - and her mind. (1999)

Fri, Oct 15 1999 something to think about....

Tonight I watched my favourite program on TV "Touched by an Angel" and there was a scene when Monica the Angel said: " God is called by many names here, Jehovah, Heavenly Father, Alpha and Omega and many more, but when you ask HIM he will say " My name is I AM..I AM here for you always" This brought to mind that I have a proverb in my files I like to share with my friends who read this page:

I was regretting the past and feared the future, suddenly my Higher Self was speaking 'My name is I AM'.
When you live in the past with it's regrets and mistakes..it is hard. I AM not there. My name is not "I WAS".
When you live in the future with it's problems and fears, it is hard. I AM not there, my name is not " I will Be".
When you live in the present it is not hard. I AM here. My name is I AM

That brings something else to mind My dear friend Dr Elisabeth Caspari, who just celebrated her 100th birthday in September, never allowed anyone in her presence to say I AM angry, I AM tired, I AM upset..etc. Because God is not angry you can say "I feel some anger", God is not tired, you can say "My body is tired"..God is not upset..you can say "I feel out of harmony."

Dr. Caspari is living proof for the importance of the application of this wisdom. At age 100 she is still teaching Piano, still teaching French language and still has plan's to start another school for Montessori Teachers. Something really to think about....


Fri, Oct 15 1999 learn about 'Living Waters' to help Mother Earth

There is more and more information coming to us about 'living waters'.

One can purchase small amounts and drop some of it into lakes or swimming pools to puirfy the water. One can also take some internally to purify the liver and help bodyfunctions. Sounds unbelieveable ?? Recently I had young visitors from Germany, they used a toothpaste just made out of pure water substance and are very excited about the benefits.

They told me about the Invention of JOHANN GRANDER. There is much to know about this and everybody can look it up under http://www.grander.com/ When we see the reports on the News about the danger of contaminated and poisoned waters after a flood, or a hurricane or any other catastrophes we know that it would behove Humanity to take advantage of this new technology released to us so timely , to clean our waters and help Mother Earth.

I AM thankful that this knowing came to me and I feel I have to share it.

Sunday, Sept. 26, 1999 A nice story

This story is making the rounds on the internet, being passed along from person to person. There is a good chance that someone has sent it to you already. I've enjoyed reading it and have decided that I'll post it here, just in case you haven't seen it yet. If you like it, pass it along!

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."

Is the man of the house home?", they asked.
No", she said. "He's out."
"Then we cannot come in", they replied.
In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.
"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!"
The woman went out and invited the men in.
"We do not go into a House together," they replied.
"Why is that?" she wanted to know.

One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home."

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. "How nice!!", he said. "Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"
His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success?"

Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!"
"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to his wife. "Go out and invite Love to be our guest." The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest."

Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: "I only invited Love. Why are you coming in?"

The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!"


Where there is pain, we wish you peace and mercy.
Where there is self-doubting, we wish you a renewed confidence in your ability to work through them.
Where there is tiredness, or exhaustion, we wish you understanding, patience, and renewed strength.
Where there is fear, we wish you love, and courage.
You have two choices right now:
   1. Keep this to yourself
   2. Invite love by sharing this story with all the people you care about.
I hope you will choose #2. I did.


Wed, Sept 1 1999 Who is predicting the End of the World ?

many people ask me this question. The media and even the Churches bring out predictions, a lot of guess work and agitations. This has people confused and in great fear. When we learn to understand 'energy' as a vibratory frequency, rotation, radiaten and realise that fear is the very lowest vibration, we do not give in to that. The Law of the circle, the law of cause and effect causes your fear to connect with all other fear vibrations and manifestations all over and in effect returns it to you thousand fold ( energy seeks its own level like water)

To me the best way to prepare to anything, expecting the unexpected is to fill the heart, soul and mind with Love for all of God's creation. This manifests the highest level of vibration. It obeys the law of the circle as well, returning Love to you. Love is healing and nurturing. Love is Light, where there is much Light there is no room for darkness. Having constantly one hand in the hand of God and only one hand stretched out to man, can lift us out of the whirlpool of human creation. Life is complex, Man makes it so, But God's laws are simple and clear.

The world is not coming to an end. We all will accelerate, using our God given Free Will. We change to higher consciousness and vibration to make the Earth Freedom's Star, shining bright. With Divine Love in our heart we have grand things to look forward to. We are the co-creators for our own Destiny! Love, Wisdom and Power in balance working together teaching us what to do to be prepared. Now and Always.


Thu, Aug 26 1999 crossing my mind and my desk

Unpacking my many books I found the one that inspired me during my convalescence time after cancer surgery: "THE MIRACLE OF REBOUND EXERCISE". I used it then and it helped my immune system and my situation cleared up miraculously.

We all have the tendency to forget after a while the blessings we had experienced, because new things are coming our way. I put again up my Carter Trampoline on the deck of our new Cottage and I enjoy this wonderful exercise which makes me feel limber and invigorated. So I want to share this with you and recommend that you read up on it. Find it under http://www.healthbounce.com/ . Find a lot of valuable information.

Now you know what to do.. do it!

Wed, Aug 25 1999 another answer to frequently asked questions
Is the OMA Method of Reflexology different from others and how ? I remember having been asked by an MD 20 Years ago as we worked together at a Healing Center, to teach MY Method of Reflexology. I asked him "I do not know that I have a special Method, what do you believe MY Method is ?" The Doctor answered simply "LOVE"

I said, "Love I can not teach. Either one has it or not, that's all there is to it. "No", he said, "everybody has it, but being aware of this wonderful tangible energy and direct it consciously is the whole difference and that you can teach. I have been watching you." Since then I learned much about my self, about healing and about people and about energy flow. Awareness is an important key.

I wish people, before asking questions, would have made an effort to search the Internet for specific topics and also browse through my entire home-page, including 'Notes from Oma's Desk" and make their own intuitive connection.

I AM teaching now in my Retreat Reflexologists who are already trained in this Healing Art by different Reflexology Teachers in different Schools and Methods. We are never finished learning and can expand on what we already think we know. One important part of the OMA Method is the RITUAL of the WASHING OF THE FEET. Naturally everyone comes with washed feet. But we are not just concerned about dirt or sweat, we talk about energy (as a lesson in itself) I AM teaching the effect of precious Essential Oils on the energy fields of the body.

Last not least we learn about the significanct alignment and purification of the Chakras while we reach them through the feet.. Reflexology is a wonderous, profound healing art in itself and does not deal with sickness but with health. The Oma Method is just expanding it to a different level.

Anyone seriously interested can take a vacation to my paradise and have the benefit of personal experience.

Tue, Aug 24 1999 what crossed my mind
I was at the Island Bank a few days ago, There was not much public trafic, short lines at the counters, many smiles and Hello's. I saw 2 tellers entertaining a Dog. The Dogs had put their paws up on the counter and received their 'treat'. People noticed my amazement and told me that this happens all the time. "The dogs are part of the community, you know?" No, I did not know and I thought to myself they only can do this because there are not many people waiting in long lines. No, that is not so either. I stand corrected.
Yesterday I was there and it was very crowded, long lines at every counter, But some dogs received attention and their 'treats' while the people in line expressed favourable emotion waiting patiently for their own turn to be served.
After witnessing this kind of attitude a quote from Albert Einstein came to mind "How I wish that somewhere there existed an island for those that are wise and of goodwill."
There is one.

Mon, Aug 23 1999 IBS .... Can reflexology help ?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome.. There is much information about this condition, one can look it up on Internet, cause effect and treatment, diagnose etc.. There are many causes, different symptoms and diverse remedies suggested. From all these one can select what applies to oneself. In connection with Reflexology I can say that quite a few people seeking my service have been helped to overcome this condition.

Again, your own God given healing capacity and- power has to be released from blockages. Which is true for all dis-ease. Depression is named as one of the causes for imbalance. How does one overcome depression? By looking around and counting all the many blessings in ones life and be grateful for them.

With Reflexology we can help the healing energy to flow more freely by balancing the Solar Plexus. (See notes from Oma's desk) The Solar Plexus connects and communicates with many other plexuses and nervous systems connected to most organs and energy fields. Also of course with Foot Reflexology we can normalise and balance the digestive system through focused compression massage on the feet, connecting to related reflex areas. Deep Relaxation is the main ingredient for any healing. REFLEXOLOGY OF THE FEET affords this special relaxation helping to balance body, mind and spirit.
First of all it is important that we know enough about our body systems, then we can determine what applies to our specific situation.
Remember we have been told in ancient times: "Man know Thy Self."
The following books give some easy to understand insight about body functions

  • Your Body's Many Cries For Water by Batmanghelidji MD (Global Health Solutions. Inc, Falls Church Viriginia
  • Become Younger by Dr. Walker ( Norwalk Press, Prescott AZ)
  • The Oil that heals by William McGarey. MD. ( A.R. E. Press Virginia Beach)

All those can be ordered through your Health Food Store

Browse the internet about Essential Oils and find out about its merits. Learn as much as possible about your body, not every body reacts the same way to the same thing.

From my experience I DO know that Foot Reflexology reaches deep and has greatly benefited serious seekers for lasting and profound solutions. We also have to realise that the health practitioner does not work ON you, but WITH you !

I like it when people ask me "Who said so ?" and I can answer "I said so" because I have informed myself and made up my own mind.


Tue, Aug 10 1999 Changing times
I have received many messages and channelling from the other dimension, stating that the 11 of August is the day of Planetary meditation and prayer. I AM grateful to be called to be a part of it and I encourage all who have ears to hear to answer the calling.
Some suggestions might sound a little complicated. Here is a simple application which also can be done all during the year: envision a focused light-stream (I envision this action during every treatment session as well) be in holy emotional balance and say with deep heart feeling and determination:
    "Helios and Vesta from the Great Central Sun, let God's light flow into my being, let that Christ-light expand in the center of my heart, let that light expand in the center of the Earth and let the Earth be transformed into the new day. The Light of God never fails and the Mighty I AM God Presence is that Light."

For anyone interested there are more inspirations by getting Dwal Khul's meditation from listeeworld@nfg.nl

Sun, Aug 1 1999 andre rieu plays his music in my treatment room

Leonie Jones mentioned in her guest- book- comments the wonderful background music during treatment sessions. Some of it is Andre Rieu's Romantic Moments CD. Today I like to share with you what I feel about him and his music.

When he came again to this Earth he came with a great momentum and the gift of healing and true spirituality.

He ensoules John Strauss with the inner knowing how to balance and harmonise energy through music and that is what he does. He is a Universal Healer. Therefore he can not be confined to one line of expression, he is reaching people of and on different levels. That is for example why the 'Romantic Moments' resonate in peoples' hearts just according to their own perception.

I play it for my patients during treatment and most of them just love it and buy their own CD and more of his music.

The same is true for the Christmas CD. People who do not like it are on a different level and it is not for them at this time.

He is a gift to Mother Earth. He is changing and transmuting the vibratory frequency in a time, when she is preparing to accelerate and enter into an age of higher consciousness . We are approaching a time when people know and understand more and more about vibration, frequencies and energy levels, understanding the power of the spoken word, of sound and collors, the power of thoughts and their effect on everything around us.

That is why he is destined to have this grand 'success' in so many countries in such a relative short time. He was send here with a mission. As was the Strauss Dynasty and all the composers of classical music like Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Schubert, Karl Maria von Weeber,Schuman, Wagner among others who were here in a distinct time-frame to gift us with eternal music

Andre Rieu has opened a door for folks, young and old, who had no interest in classical music before.

I can understand that Andre does not want fan clubs. Just look what silly things people are expressing. He is far above that !!

I AM not really sure if he knows about His mission in his outer consciousness. But he is not shy, as some people say, he is humble in his heart. We all can be grateful for his presence send him loving thoughts and blessings and remember that when we play his waltzes, we are doing Mother Earth a wonderful sercice. Play them often, in the home and in the car. Buy them for your family and friends, they are valuable gifts for a lifetime. I had bought the "Christmas I love" and "Romantic Moments" Video when I was visiting Germany and had them re-formated. Even though he speaks the German Language on them, my American friends, old and young and very young, love them. People ask where they can be purchased.

In closing I want to say "The Love in my heart greets the Love in your heart Dear Andre, thus empowering You Dear Friend of old to keep on doing Your work which comes right from the heart. Thank you for being here."

So, these thoughts have been 'crossing my mind' on this Sunday Afternoon in Friday Harbor where I am living now in my new paradise


Sun, Aug 1 1999 spirituality and practicality

One does not exclude the other Someone said recently to me when she saw me doing physical work and brain work, "I was under the impression that you are just always up in the air?" No ! Not at all, we are complex beings and can do what ever we chose to do, can Be what ever we want to Be. If I do or say something which does not resonate in your heart, it is just simply not for you at this time. We all function on different levels of consciousness and we can tune in to our own level anytime we want to. But we can also learn from others when we are ready.

My practical nature has helped me to survive a treck of 600 miles with my young child and wounded husband as refugees in 1945, and also helped me to work very hard to secure our existence when I was faced with the need to raise 4 children from age 5 - 15 after their father was gone. With no 'outside' help or wellfare. Today they are wonderful, productive and aware human beings I AM proud of, we love each other very much and are very close.

I just became for the second time a Great Grand Mother. But I never loose contact with my spiritual nature, which keeps me connected to help and assistance beyond measure. I also do recognise the power of the expression I AM. Therefore I AM careful not to follow with a negative sentence. I do not say "I AM tired" I say: "My body is weary" I do not say "I AM sad" I say: "I feel some sadness". I comment Dr. Schuller's Son Robert for his Sermon last Sunday at the Crystal Cathedral in Orange County, when he pointed out that "I AM" is a commanding statement and how important it is to program our mind in a positive way.

Watch what you say or even think. Your body is listening and it understands your every thought. It responds to your every command.


Sun, Aug 1 1999 some answers to some questions

I have spoken about "taking back your own life" in Oma's Notes and now I AM reading the comments of one of the people I had the joy of giving treatments back in California. Mrs. Leonie Jones.

Not to confuse my visitors I like to point out a site on Internet which might be helpful to have an understanding about yourself, your reason for being, your possibilities

The Differences between Angels, Humans and Elementals

I know that the Angels have helped me in many seemingly hopeless situations, They are helpers of God and Man. I lived through the second World Warin Germany and there were many incidents which seem like a miracle to get me and my family out of deadly situations. This experiences and the fact that it was made easy for me to come to this Country with my family 30 years ago, gave me the impetus to seek more spiritual knowledge and understanding. And there it came, again one 'miracle' after the other.

I AM in the process to write a book about that. There are many sides to promote Spiritual Consciousness on the internet. Anyone interested can just look for it

Sun, Jul 25 1999 Taking back my own life
Taking back my own life

this is what my Son tells me when I wonder why he wants to do all the work on the house and garden in our new home, instead of hiring someone to do it. And he is not one who has a lot of free time, but he makes the time to do the things he loves and which are important to him. This made me think about myself. Leaving so many patients who depend on 'Oma's Healing Energy' back in California is one thing that gave me some discomfort, because they all let me now how much they miss me.

But they empower me by thinking I can do more than they can do for themselves The truth is, that every body has its own God given healing energy in them. But we should never underestimate people's attachment to their own limitations. This includs myself at times.

Yet I overcame the severe cancer situation years ago by relying on my own healing power, the inner Physician. I need to encourage everyone to take their own life back again and trust in their own healing ability. I like to share these thoughts with you.

We are now getting settled in our new home and good thoughts are coming to mind when we are sitting outside on the deck under the big tree's and feel the freedom and abundance around us, which is ours for the taking.

I think I will write now more in my 'Notes' what is crossing my mind for you who like me to share what comes right out of my heart.. it is not edited, and it is mindful, not brainful.

Talk to you soon again, thank you for visiting.

Wed, Mar 17 1999 catch up
I AM now entering the next stage of my life and I AM looking forward to it. Sometimes circumstances cause us to be busy like a bee and too busy to BE. This has been happening to me.

Word did get around that I am relocating and changing my focus. Therefore, many more people came to see me. Moving-preparations and adjustments in my time were in order and this did not leave enough space in my calendar to answer all the dear people who visited my Guest Book.

I am most grateful for all of the lovely comments that I have received. As a matter of fact, my humorous oldest daughter teased me by saying, "Mother, are you sure you are not paying these people to say these nice things about you ? .. just kidding."

Those people just want to share their feelings and experiences with others, so please bear with us. These are emotional times for us all, and we will be back to 'normal' soon. By the end of May, I will be able to teach and write again.
