Today I received calls from people to make appointment for Foot
Reflexology, because they know from experience that these treatments
will enhance the Immune System.
Therefore they feel that regular treatments might prevent the
effects of Germ-War-Fare. We also know that the Natural Antibiotica
which we get from OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT is something we can do for
ourselves, so we do not need to fear to be victims of Biol.War
Fare. It can be ordered at any fine Healthfood Store.
One can find information about Olive Leaf Extracton the internet.
It has to be remembered that information is Power, we are not
helpless, when we don't give in to fear but stay informed and
I also have been asked to give Foot Reflexology Workshops, even
to High School Students so they can learn how to help themselves
and friends and family members. It will be done.

|| turning scars into stars
today I had a wonderful experience. Here on the Island there
was a turmoil at the Senior Citise Center. One of everybody's
favored people there had to resign and it was hard on her and
the community. All this was caused by personal conflicts. This
made Arnel free to travel. She traveled home to Idaho and there
she met in a restaurant a long forgotten and lost sweetheart.
They connected right away and now today I was invited to attend
their wedding here on the Island. What seemed to be a very hurtful
negative energy not very long ago, has turned into a very happy
and loving one. Scars turned into stars
More than about 300 people attended and everybody was happy to
see Arnell being so happy. A lot of wonderful possitive, loving
energy was going around, lots of smiles and hugs and blessings.
Imagine what this did for the Island and the Planet as a Whole.
Many stories were told, one of them again was about Divine guidance.
What seemed to be a problem turned out to be a blessing. One of
our friends, a Singer, went to Europe, things did not work out
and he and his family were quite unhappy because they felt that
he was a failure.. He booked his return flight, but found out
that it was too expensive he could not afford it because he did
not make the money he had expected to make in Europe. He booked
as a "stand-by" on another flight, much less expensive. As it
turned out the first return-flight was in the machine which had
the suicide pilot flying the plane into the tower in New York.
A co-incident or Divine Guidance.?????
Everyone involved is now happy and grateful.

|| Human touch
Today, when I browsed through the menue on TV there was a program
titled "Love beginns in the home". What caught my attention was
that Mother Teresa was the key speaker, so I listened.
Memories came back of things I used to do and talk about, shared
with friends and patients in California. One experience Mother
Terese spoke about was something very similar to what I believe
and did experience myself:
One day, I saw a homeless person, very unclean and depressed,
head drooping, sitting on the ground in front of a bookstore in
Pasadena. I was compelled to reach down and touch him and hold
his hand. He looked up and the tears runing from his eyes made
their way through his dirty dirty skin and he said: "I do not
remember when I felt a human touch or when anyone did hold my
hand." He cried and sobbed and finally smiled. The food I did
bring him later was not so important as the human touch he felt.
That is something to remember. Don't just give a handout,
but give a hand.
Some other time I touched an older, very unclean looking man
and spoke to him, touching his arm and he replied "How come you
are not afraid of me ? Everybody seems to be." I said: "I can
feel and see that you are a good person, God does not make junk."
He laughed and shook my hand.
We both felt very good.

|| going for a re-charge
I love to spend time in Roche Harbor, in the Rose-Garden. One
can feel the love and dedication of the young gardeners who care
for and select the plants and colour combinations.. It is a delight
to see how people who are coming as guests to Roche Harbor browse
through the gardens and admire the plants and flowers. For people
who live in the city this is a great opportunity to experience
nature. I especially like to watch little children how they are
gently touching the leaves and plants and take the beauty of the
colour into their mind and consciousness, standing still in deep
Another difference from city-life is the friendliness of the
people, even strangers waving and greeting and talking to one
another in a quite relaxed manner. It is a place some call paradise

|| caring for Senior Citizens
I became a member of the Senior Citizen Centre and I have been
participating in their exercise, every Monday and Thursday from
11.30 to 12 which I feel is very beneficial. They moved to a new
facility and are now building up the Centre, adding more activities,
serving lunch in their nice big dining room.
People come together and socialise. When I AM there I observe
and communicate. This way I learn more about what everybody is
are doing and what is of concern.
As most people in the Western World today enjoy a materially
higher standard of living and a longer life than in past decades,
it is even more imperative that attention is given to health and
prevention, so they can pass the reminder of their lifespan relatively
free of affliction and that they can depend on their own strength.
And most important, to be able to share their wisdom and life
experience with the younger generation.
I have now offered several reflexology-workshops. That means
that they can work on each other, give each other healing touch,
energy and Love from a safe distant point, the feet. Foot massages
are very invigorating, especially for older people who do not
use their feet much, do not go for long walks but are sitting
I even recommend younger families to give each other every evening
a foot bath and a foot massage with Castor Oil and do this also
for their Grandparents. It is relaxing and energising at the same
time. People tell me that in doing this the quality of their family
life has increased tremendously

|| varicose veins exercise Oma finds beneficial
> I had varicose veins for many years, first they were just
looking ugly, then they became more and more painful.
After Hip Replacement Surgery I was given some exercises by the
Physical Therapy people for muscle training in connection with
the new hip and my back.
Now I must say, that not only has the pain in the varicose veins
subsided, they are shrinking more and more. I AM sharing this
here in my notes, because the exercise is very simple and many
can benefit from it.
I lie on my back, slowly move my foot up and down, flexing my
ankle about 15-20 times. Then slowly move my foot in circular
motions (both directions) 15 - 20 times, repeat several times
per day. To begin with I did it faithfully after surgery, now
I do it 2 times a day and feel great.
In Reflexology we also move the ankles by pumping the feet up
and down many times, we call it the veinous pump. It is also invigorating
for tired legs.
As our Mother used to say " Now you know it, Do it now!"

|| being on Oma's mind
I have been asked what happened to my mind ? Is nothing coming
to mind or crossing my desk these days?
O yes there is too much on my mind and many transmissions, books
and letters on my desk. Perhaps though I did not think that much
of this personal "stuff" might be of interest to my readers. But
now I have been told otherwise.
Recently my son Thomas, his dear friend Laura and I have made
a trip to Montana to visit my dear friend Dr. Elisabeth Caspari
who can look back on 102 years of her life.
I love her soo much..We did not have much time, the trip was
only 3 days, one day 16 hrs. to travel by car, one day to visit
and one day travelling back. Thomas and Laura did the driving
and they made sure that we stopped at several Rest Areas to go
for a walk, stretching und giving our body some healthy nourishment.
It was strenuous but we were able to experience much joy on
the trip and during our visit. It was worth the effort. Dr. Caspari
is an inspiration to everyone around her. As a matter of fact
she is planning to participate in the founding of another school
for Montessori teachers training. On her Living room wall she
has a big sign " LOVE IS THE KEY" and one can see it, everybody
loves her and she gives out so much Love, which as we know the
highest energy. Love is the Universal Medicine.

Remembering situations of the past it becomes clear to me that
I never really worried about the future. I had an inner conviction
and knowing that my life and that of my family was under Divine
When I started a Reflexology Center I only had a few clients,
not enough to pay the next month's rent and other expenses. But
I knew it would flourish. I had a great reputation and the moral
support of friends. I had no fear and I did not worry . "Worry
is like a rocking chair it moves you but does not get you anywhere."
We are aware of the power and effect of our thoughts, be they
loving and positive or negative. I also know if one has the intent
to do good and to serve, holding one hand in the hand of God and
the other hand lovingly stretched out to serve, one can not fail.
There is a difference between believing and knowing. Beliefystems
can change. Knowing is providing a solid foundation. Knowing of
and trusting in your inner power sustains a wonderful radiant
vision. Energy seeks its own level. like water. What we send out
we also draw in. There is a profound statement from my Master,
"your attainment can be measured by the situations and people
you draw into your life".
Simply put "what goes around,comes around". Quite a few 'miracles'
happened to help me along, but one can not plan miracles.

During the Second World War some families with little children
were relocated out of the war zone from the German West to the
East. Later, as the occupation by the English, the French, the
Russian and the American forces took place, we knew that we should
be in the West and started to take the street under our feet,
to walk about 600 miles to go home.
We did not have any money because the bank accounts were frozen.
We had a small hand drawn wagon in which we carried a few small
belongings, diapers etc. With my 18 month old son, my 12 year
old sister, and my husband, who was on temporary leave from the
German army, we were on our way. Along the way there were many
checkpoints, where one needed an official document to pass. Miraculously
we always were given the opportunity to get those papers somehow.
Then came the time when the Americans withdrew, handing the territory
over to the Russians to occupy and all roads were closed. No way
to pass anymore.
Fortunately, someone told us that there was a last chance, for
one day a private boat crossed the river near Eisenach and set
people over to the American side. Excited and happy and hopeful
we approached that spot were the boat was, but we were told that
we had to pay 20 Marks per person. What a disappointment, we did
not have any money. And we were running out of time......
Then literally out of thin air appeared a man, handed the boat
owner 80 Marks and said, "let them go!". Before we could thank
him he had disappeared. During the whole trip there was one seemingly
hopeless situation after the other. Somehow, we were able to overcome
everyone of them, obviously guided by Divine intervention giving
us the courage to continue on.
This is one of the many "miracles" I remember.

|| blessings, miracles and angels
My son Thomas wrote about my hip replacement surgery in my current
guestbook. He wanted to explain why I have not been working on
my web site for quite a while.
I am making good progress in the challenging recovery. Receiving
regular foot massages and reflexology helps tremendously.
Being laid up as I am, I have a lot of time to read and to think.
Much goes through my mind. I always say I need much time to count
my blessings because there are so many.
Now, looking back at my life I realise how true that is. How
many blessings I can recall which almost feel and appear as miracles.
Since a lot of this is crossing my mind now I may share some of
it with all of you in the weeks to come. You might agree with
me that my knowing about Angels stems from many of those experiences.
Look for the next Notes and see if you can agree with me.

|| Christmas Tree
The season reminds me of thoughts I've written down many years
ago. Today, I'd like to share them with the visitors to this site.
Did you ever wonder why the spruce tree was chosen to be the
Christmas Tree ? This upright, steadfast tree, untouched by the
seasons, pointing to the sky like a giant finger or like a church
born and having grown up in the Black Forest in Germany, the spruce
trees, "Tannenbaum" as we call them, are my friends
and I like to think that they love me also. As a young child I
often sat on the hills and marveled at the majesty of the spruce
forest. I liked to imagine that the angels delight in worshiping
in this forest cathedral.
I learned that the needles can remain on the tree for up to 10
years and it can take more than a decade, before the blooming
process does bring forth first the little redish flowers with
yellow/green flower-dust covering and blessing the whole tree
with an aromathic substance and then the cones which are the fruits.
One summer is too short to ripen the fruits. Even after falling
from the tree the needles and fruits resist decay and cover the
forest ground unceasingly and softly with many coats. The spruce
tree teaches us perseverance and preservation as expressed so
lovingly in the German Christmas Song "O Tannenbaum".
The intense introversion does create a strong energy core and
concentrated heat radiation, a constant cource of warmth, transforming
solid matter into tar and aetheric oils. Their wholesome, refreshing
substance and fragrance is healing to the human respiratory system
and harmonizes body mind and spirit. This is why we feel so refreshed
and vitalized after spending hours in a spruce forest.
And so the angels have chosen the spruce tree as the most beautiful
and certainly the most profound of all symbols connected with
the Holy Night.
A tree so adored, year after year grandually sends forth a blessing
and a benediction not only at christmas time but every day of
For us it represents God's unceasing love. Reminding us to go
within. The bees wax candles, which only were lit when we all
were present and meditated on the meaning of the Holy Night gave
warmth and not only symbolized but literally brought about purity.
I remember feeling and hearing the message of the candle that
will sacrifice itself while giving us Light.
I wish we could again see the Christmas Tree for what it was
meant to be. Not only a religious symbol, but something everybody,
no matter what faith or religion one follows can feel.

|| The healing tones of Music / Alzheimer
This came into my life and on my desk and into my mind and I
wish to share it with everyone.
On Thanksgiving, friends came to my house and asked if they
can bring their mother who has late stage of Alzheimers, is in
a wheelchair and lives in a convalescent home. I was surprised
when I saw Glady. She was bend over, head dropped forward, hunched
over, muscles very contracted, her eyes usually closed.
I love Strauss and other classical music, especially the walzes,
so it always plays in one room somewhere in my house. We had one
of Andre Rieu's CD softly playing in the living room.
Then we noticed that Glady open her contracted hands and moved
them gently back and forth, to the rhythm of the waltz music.
She raised her head, opened her eyes.
Normally to feed her is very difficult, but this time she willingly
opened her mouth and had a very good appetite.
Seeing this, it came to my mind that I was given a book: " The
Healing Tones of Music" based on research work at Casa Maria Research
Center, located in Everett WA ( a music therapy institute.) Unfortunately
the address did not respond and there is no tel. number, so I
could not order the book which was first published in 1986, or
find out more about the research ...and so.....forgot about it
But seeing Glady's response to Waltzmusic reminded me of the
book and made me read in the book again and there I found on page
28 this about Johann Strauss:
quote:" The music of Strauss will harmonise our whole being,
physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, though it
is specifically stimulating to the physical body. His music
puts all of these into harmony and blends all these areas.
In music therapy the playing of these waltzes is beneficial
for the autistic child because it will create this blending
with the physical body so there would not be a disconnection
Along with the bright colours of red, orange and pink ( in
clothing and decoration or lightening) this has been effective
for the Alzheimer Patient.. The three-four rhythm of the Waltz
is re-inforcing to physical movement, and the attractive melodies
and simplistic harmonies are most energising....."End of quote.
Everybody was amazed and the family has now spoken to the head
people in the convalescent home and have ordered CD's from Andre
Rieu. They agreed to play it for their patients if they wish.
Something to think about.

|| question about Oma's experience with Cancer
Six Years ago I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer a 6cm tumour,
stage 4. I decided to have the tumour removed but did not agree
to radiation or chemo therapy I also requested that the Lymphatic
system remained untouched.
I had the great fortune to be aware of the importance of our
thoughts. Our subconscious listens to everything we say or think
and interprets it all literally It knows the intensity of what
our attention on. Everything we say, everything we think and everything
we feel is an affirmation.
The affirmations we say most often and with great feelings become
facts, our subconscious works to bring them into being.
I AM aware of this Cosmic Law and teach it to my students. I
AM opposed to all this predictions of how many thousands of Woman
in the next year are afflicted with Cancer. This is programming
the mind and subconscious's of the public and along comes the
fear and the expectance and acceptance of this dis- ease.
A dear friend introduced me to Dr. Day's work, I saw her Video
"Cancer does not scare me anymore" I locked on to her web site
at www.drday.com which provides
us with very valuable information.
I could go home from the hospital the same day of surgery and
could take up my work 2 weeks later.
You also can see how Reflexology was applied and helped by reading
the "Confession of a Master Reflexologist" on my web. I had a
very positive outlook, no fear, healthy diet.
I also believe in good music to balance cellular memory and create
the vibratory frequency of the Violet Flame. So I am listening
a lot to classical- and Waltz- Music which brings me much Joy.

|| question: what can reflexology do ?
Once again, somebody has asked me to send them 'information about
Reflexology'. I find this kind of request rather astonishing.
Here is why:
There is much information on this website about what reflexology
can do. There are also many references to people who have much
knowledge and experience to be found in my guestbook. The rest
of the Internet is another good resource for information on the
topic. Why not learn how to use the search engines to find information?
If someone really wants to know more about Reflexology, s/he
can simply study this site, read the notes, the testimonials,
the list of books we are providing. One could also check what
says about Reflexology.
Since I do not sell anything, and that means I have nothing to
gain from this site and from the dissemination of information,
I really have no reason, nor the means, to send 'information'
to anyone who can't be bothered to look for themselves.
Having said that, let me add that I am most willing to help those
who will help themselves, so if you still have specific questions
- after doing your own research and investigation - ask me again.

|| Another story crossing Oma's mind
This came to mind talking to parents recently and I want to share
this story with you. It shows the many sides of Oma's Method of
I had two clients, a doctor and his wife for regular treatments.
One day the doctor told me that their 4 year old Son was crying,
sometimes screaming and that nothing could calm him down. He was
not even willing to let them touch or hug him.
There was a new baby in the family and I could see that the little
guy was jealous. I suggested to the father that he should treat
and wash and massage the little boys feet. The father objected
and said: "But he will not allow us to touch him".
So I suggested they ask the little boy to massage and bath the
father's feet. I gave them some little bottles with Spikenard-
and Lavender- oil for the boy to use We also talked about it how
we can impart the unconditional Love of God from a safe distant
point into the nerve pathways of a person through the feet.
The little boy was very happy to do his father's feet and the
father said, "Oh, I can feel the love from your heart and hand
coming right into my body and heart, it is so wonderful."
After they were finished the boy asked the father, "Can I feel
your love coming into my heart and my body from my feet, can you
wash and massage my feet also?"
Of course, the father did what the boy asked and the spell was
broken. The child was happy, he did not cry anymore and accepted
his new little sister.
The family continues to give foot massages to one another as
a regular family ritual.
There are other stories how parents restore lost relationships
with their rebellious teen-agers.
From a safe distant point without displaying embarrassing emotions,
the parents massage their feet and while holding the solar plexus
reflex visualise light and love entering their body.

|| answer to questions
reflex zone massage ( reflexology) should not be seen
merely as a technique that can be applied mechanically, it is
more than that,
We must always bear in mind that we are working with a whole
person and not restrict our attention to one aspect of him his
symptoms or his illness.
For example, bed wetting is often described as a kind of crying.
It is frequently the reaction of the child to constant pressure
by circumstances or by its parents.
Yes Reflexology can assist to bring about healing. Please find
a Zone Therapist in your area who has a broad theoretical knowledge,
an understanding of the interactions of body, mind and soul. One
who is not treating an illness, but the whole person, not being
concerned with symptoms but with the underlying causes. A positive
attitude is also of upmost importance on both sides, the therapist
and the partner.
If you read the TESTIMONIALS
section on this site, you will find that all kind of symptoms,
including diabetis, have been addressed successfully.

about 6 years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer, stage 4,
I had a massive mastectomy But I chose not to take chemo therapy.
I had a positive outlook, changed my diet to much green, chlorophyll
no meat, used my trampoline to enhance my immune system, did some
urine therapy. I also had one of my students work on me with Reflexology..
I could start my work a week after surgery and I AM in good condition
since then. Of course I never had fear. I never thought "this
is the end, I can not be helped." I trusted in my body's own
God given healing power.
Watch your words and thoughts, because they are powerful and do
The name of God is I AM. Don't use the name of God in vain by saying:
I AM sick, I AM angry I AM hopeless. Also, do not allow anyone around
you to express negative energy in motion ( emotions).

to share that with you because of your expression: "..there is no
chance he will be saved". That is nonsense !!!!!!! Excuse me.

|| stress reduction for police emplyees
|| Answering Donna's question about stress reduction
in police employees.
Aroma therapy and all the other faculties you mentioned are
fine. But in my experience the most relaxing, deep relaxing system
is Foot Reflexology.
Just touching and massaging someone's feet is sending them off
into deep relaxation. To work on someone's Feet is almost sacred
and affects the person deeply.
One also chooses carefully the oils to be used on the feet, the
feet have the largest pores and the body takes in ( and releases)
through the feet. For balance and relaxation I like to use Castor
Oil ( 3 drops on each foot) with some Camomile or Spikenard (
1 drop on each foot)
Hand reflexology in my opinion is quite effective for stimulation.

|| how not to be affected by low energy
|| Answer to a frequent question: Answering David.
The question how a healer or any practitioner can be protected
from sick or negative or unwanted energies is quite important.
First of all even if we just go out into the world we need to
be protected. how ? By wearing a tube of Light, by charging our
own energy field with so much Light that nothing can penetrate
it. Where do we take that Light from ? Light is Love and Love
is Light. If our heart is filled with unconditional Love and if
we by our own God-given free will and with determination direct
this energy and let it flow out beyond our mortal form, we have
a shield around us which protect us against all energy of a lower
level. Picture a house standing in the dark night, someone turns
the light on, the light shines out, but did you ever see the darkness
growling into the light ? Never !
Another point to be aware of is the human ego with its false
pride and false humility. The Divine ego knows that the energy
we use comes from a higher source, from the Creator The I AM in
us is the co-creator.
To drink much water before any treatment as someone suggested
is a good idea. BUT is is very important to make always invocations
for and to visualise God's Healing Energy expanding in our heart
and working with and through us, filling us with Light...
We are the instrument, the facilitator, the catalyst. The energy
flows through us charged by the love in our heart and our sincere
intent to help and to heal.
We sometimes hear a person say they are drained. They feel they've
given their energy. That is not the way things work. We can not
be drained, we are the door, not the doer. Please read other Notes

|| Reflexology is
|| Now, here is what crossed my mind and my desk
I have been travelling much and many incidents came to confirm
that reflexology is now widely taught and accepted. Even bookstores
offer lectures on Self-Help with Reflexology. In Sidney BC we
saw a Taxi displaying advertising for a Reflexology Center on
When I started to advertise Reflexology some 24 years ago, there
was no response. Someone advised me to speak at Service Clubs
and explain what Reflexology is and what it does. My daughter
called all kind of Clubs, Kiwany, Rotary, Shriners, Optimist,
you name it. Nobody was interested. Then one day there was an
invitation to be a guestspeaker at a meeting of 'Optimist' members.
But they and I were in for a surprise. The program director introduced
me as the speaker lecturing on "Sexology". That was because they
had misunderstood my daughter on the telephone. We all had a great
laugh and I was then invited back to present my real topic, Reflexology.
Everyone was happy and I subsequently received much support by
some members in opening a professional office, the first Reflexology
Center in California.
We have come a long way since then. Reflexology is now almost
a household word, everybody knows about it. You can browse the
for Reflexology Associations in your area. Or your Health Food
Store will refer you to a practitioner.
In Seattle I found a Reflexology Center which offers frequently
lectures and workshops for laymen and professionals It is also
true that the public is now alert and quite open to Natural Healing,
living food, and such. We are entering the age of enlightenment.
Two books came to my desk that I wish to recommend "The Secret
of Shambhala" by James Redfield and "your Body's many cries for
water" A preventive and self-education manual. I also find that
the Radio Broadcast "New Dimensions" is a great source of information.
