The Human Body

In our previous article “The Real Material World” we invited the reader to get rid of “the conditioned consciousness” in order to be able to explore new ways to experience life. In this article, we will try to provide the reader some refreshing insights about our own body, its functioning and how to get in harmony with it.

How to avoid illnesses

Don’t allow your body to weaken, to get ill and to catch the “Flu”. Strengthen your defence system with 100% natural products that don’t show secondary effects. We recommend natural antibiotics like propoleo, grapefruit seed extract, colloidal silver…. You also can use medical plants like Equinacea, thyme, Uña de gato, Shiitake, Jalea Real, Vitamin C, etc. Mixtures of these are also available and they are stronger thanks to synergetic effects.


maizOur body feeds itself with “food”, that is mixed up with liquids and gases, most commonly with “water and oxygen”. What would happen to us if it got transformed into toxins? So let’s have a look at what is called “Transgenic Food”. A transgenic or Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) is a living organism that has been artificially created by modifying its genetic sequence. The genetic manipulation consists of isolating some DNA sequences from a living organism (virus, bacteria, plant, animal or human) to include it into another living organism. For instance, the transgenic corn that is cultivated in Spain contains bacteria genes that are responsible for the production of an insecticide.

Retention of body liquids

...and Presotherapy.

The accumulation of body liquids (water, toxins and others) is a malfunction of the metabolism that hits many people, especially women. The symptoms are evident: feeling heavy, swelling of ankles, feet and abdomen, unexplainable increase of weight and volume, etc. The reasons can be a malfunction in the hormonal, kidney, artery or liver system, stress and season (especially spring and summer).

Advice for a nice summer...

... and preparation for autumn:

- Keep your body well hydrated, from the inside as well as from the outside by drinking plenty of water. Use medical plants like Dandelion Flower, Horseflower, Milk Thistle and others to clean your body at the same time,

- To achieve a good internal skin hydration use the Omega 3, 6 and 9 oils that also will help you to avoid problems with blood circulation, cholesterol, bones, memory, etc.. For external use Aloe Vera, Calendula Oil, Rose Musk, Argán, Evening Primrose Oil, etc are highly recommendable. If you have a very dry skin, then use Jojoba, Avocado, or Coconut oil,

Intelligent use of our Brain

In the last edition of Spirit, we wrote about the evolution of mankind’s consciousness from the level of our ancestors – the humanoids –, towards ours today – Homo Sapiens. And we raised the question if the actual level of our consciousness would be the highest one that could be reached. And the answer was “no”.

Let it go...

Let it go...

... and let it flow. Easier said than done. Anybody who made the step to Fuerteventura – or another foreign location – knows that letting go became a permanent companion, in the past and maybe today still is. You leave behind the usual life, family, friends, job, home and the surroundings that you got accustomed to for a journey into another world. Attitude is everything, as the challenges are multiple and complex, most of the time. Issues which you never anticipated emerge, situations that you never experienced will call upon you. And so it can happen that, when sticking to the usual procedures and structures, your journey might become rather bumpy. However whatever the outcome, you will have learned and built up experiences that never can be taken out of a book. Experience – whether positive or negative – remains an experience that will bring you further on to your path of life.

Being timid

According to my memory, I grew up as a normal kid. However, I have been mobbed in school and couldn't get help from my parents. "Don't pay attention" or "it won't be that bad" they answered. This situation at school and the unbelief of my parents resulted in my shyness. The fear of being marked as "weird", led to my social isolation. I became a timid person. Then, after education, I have been mobbed at work to such an extent that, at occasions, I had suicidal thoughts. I wondered "Is this going to be my life?"
The moment that I really hit the bottom of my misery, at the age of 27, I met my future wife. She invited me for a drink and I remember that I was very silent, being afraid to make errors and stupid remarks. I couldn't imagine that a woman would be interested in me. My self-esteem was at such a low level. She became my first date.
Thanks to her perseverance, I slowly but steadily crawled out of the pit. She constantly mentioned to me that I had a lot to offer and that I was a loving person.

Relationships: The dynamics of Modern Relationships - a sketch.

Modern relationships differ from “older” ones in the way that nowadays people can be more open about their preferences and expectations. Females enjoy more freedom in most western societies and this has an important influence on their self-consciousness and ego. The “romantic ideal” of life-time relationships is – slowly but steadily – transformed into a more pragmatic attitude towards partnerships. Discovery of one self within a fixed relationship and redefinition of expectations and loyalty becomes an important topic to youngsters and older partners. The search about the (new) basics of life is also guided by components of the far-eastern culture. Respect, openness and friendship seem to be the driving forces in modern relationships.

Freedom of Mind - The Fuerteventura Experiment.

The mind or ego, in its conscious or unconscious state, is a genial development of nature. It has helped all living species to take care of themselves and to survive most daily threats, over millions of years. Evolution as we know it is unthinkable without the assistance of mind, regardless what state.
However, modern mankind in general is the first creature on this planet that has the possibility of not having to stand up to life-threatening situations everyday. Even more, modern mankind is the first creature on this planet that has the luxury to relax over a longer period of time without suffering negative consequences.

Conflicting Partners

A relationship is not always a rose garden, nor should it be a constant warzone. However, living together creates conflicts. There are many reasons for this such as genetics, hormones and external elements. People do evaluate and interpret events in a different way and they do act accordingly different. Hidden behind any conflict are wishes, expectations and habits that were known by you before or that were hidden in your subconscious mind. You got to know them for sure only when exposed during a conflict.

You and your Destiny

Your beliefs convert into your thoughts,

Your thoughts convert into your words,

Your words convert into your actions,

Your actions convert into your habits,

Your habits convert into your values,

Your values convert into your destiny.

(Mahatma Ghandi)


Relaxing Advice

Are you nervous and can't you get to sleep?
Possible causes for insomnia are stress, daily preoccupations, anxiety, depression, going to bed at different times or very late. Exposure to electromagnetic fields, nearby radiations from mobiles, computers, TV and being frequently connected to them. Avoid large meals in the evening and limit stimulating drinks like coffee, tea, sweets, soft drinks, alcohol, tobacco, etc. Sleeping on fluffy pillows.There are many natural remedies to find a solution:{slide=Read more...}- deep-respiration techniques, meditation, yoga, listening to relaxing music, receiving a massage, taking a bath with relaxing oils and scents, a walk through nature, drinking an infusion of passion flower, valerian, hop, poppy, orange blossom, balm, linden flower, rose, etc and if you don't like infusions then you can get tablets or extracts of the same.

- you also can take Melatonin to have a restful night as it is a powerful regulator of the awake-sleep rhythm and it protects against stress and depression. It is a hormone that is produced by the Epiphysis and the Pineal gland. It is liberated by the body when dark or during the night. The level reduces by getting older.

- SHTP (Tryptophane) is a natural amino acid and an intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters Serotonin and Melatonin from Tryptophane. It also regulates the nervous system and is very useful against anxiety,

- Vitamin B Complex as a supplement will strengthen our nervous system,

What if?

Some time ago during this year, I was overlooking the most significant events of the last couple of months and wondered what would be the meaning of them. Would they just be randomly produced as components of a mathematical probability, or would they be "organised" as part of a "higher plan" in order to invite us to re-think about and re-act on our "proven" concepts?  With "higher plan" I do not necessarily mean the standard idea of a Higher Force, but merely the creation of situations by our actual behaviour that make those events almost unavoidable.

A lesson in modesty - Made in Japan.

As already mentioned in short in the Welcome section of this magazine, the recent dramatic events for sure have put many people in shock and have set them in a mental conditioning of self-examination: why did it hit us so badly, where were we wrong?

We never will be able to predict major earthquakes sufficiently well or even control or avoid most of their effects, but we can try to limit those devastating consequences that we have witnessed recently.

A children’s perception about love…

When people fall in love they want to see a lot of movies…because they can sit together in the dark. (Sheley, 8)

When people fall in love with each other then they kiss and when you kiss for the first time you faint… surely for at least one hour. (Wendy, 8)

Love & Relationships.

Is Love enough in a relationship? Well, compare with this:

Imagine your car being in a corrosive marine area.

If you regularly do maintenance on your car and with love, you will encounter little rust,

If you love your car but cut on the maintenance, you will get more rust,

If you don’t love your car and neglect it, you will get a lot of rust,

A relationship is not different.

Love alone is not enough to keep things running, regular maintenance is important too.

Eliminating rust with love alone won’t work, a hands-on approach is needed sometimes.



Relationships – Suggestions for a happy-end.

When relationships are difficult or when they are hitting a bottom, many people ask themselves what is wrong with them… or with their partner. With the exception of a minority who really have to cope with deep problems concerning emotional and communicative issues, nothing is wrong with us. However, be aware that every one of us is a product of three major elements: genetic disposition, education by environment and adjustment through auto-feedback.

The Reconnection - "Heal Others, Heal Yourself" by Eric Pearl

creationofadam-michelangelo1Internationally recognized healer Eric Pearl has appeared on countless television programs in the US and around the world, spoken by invitation at the United Nations, presented to a full house at Madison Square Garden, been interviewed in various publications including The New York Times, and most recently featured in the film, The Living Matrix.


Woman & Man.


The Hebrew Talmud ends with:

"Watch out to avoid making a woman cry,
because God counts her tears.
The woman was created from the rib of a man,
not from his feet to be his door mat,
not from his head to be his superior,
but from his side to be his equal.
Out of a rib under his arm in order to be protected,
and from the side of his heart to be beloved by him."

Once upon a time…

so the story starts.
Once upon a time, about three days before Christmas, on a dark, cold night, somewhere in the North:
A group of men passing the plaza of the little village, stopping at the local church, taking out of their pockets cans of spray paint and swiftly writing on the wall: “Foreigners go home!!!”, then a noise of breaking glass. The gang disappeared quickly and a ghostly silence filled the air. The curtains were closed quickly and nobody had seen anything.

Open the Gate and let through…

_MG_2626Open the Gate and let through…

It is almost Christmas time. The year comes to its end, the days shorten and the nights get longer. Here on Fuerteventura, we do not experience these phenomena to the same extent as “back home“. Here we still have the warmth and the light and we don’t have the sh… weather like rain, fog, cold, snow, but neither the open fire place, the fine delicacies from home.

Crystallised Angels

cristalprojetorTheir beauty cannot be put in words. Their power of healing surpasses our imagination and way of thinking. Healing stones are companions on our way of life, like crystallised angels.
When you hold a stone in your hand – no matter if it is just a pebble or a precious stone – you hold substantially more in your hand than just the result of a million-year-old chemical and physical process: it is the essence of all, of wisdom, and the truth about our existence. The universe has endless ways of expressing itself. One of them is through the wonderful magic of healing stones, which beauty attracts us.

Anxiety: a hurdle to quality-life

Anxiety is a result of a biological and a psychological condition but also of education and social environment. When we grow up from our childhood to adults, we discover fear due to experiences that harmed us – physically, mentally, emotionally, or a combination of these. A proper education teaches us to cope with these fears and to put them in a balanced perspective. An improper or even abusive education will result in the amplification of fears to such an extend that they could run your entire life. Fear will then cause internal and constant pain.

The Art of opening up your Soul

Many of us – and I have to admit I am no exception to it – tend to use only our brain in our daily communication with others. For the majority of topics that we have to deal with, there is nothing wrong about that. But when it comes to our communication with friends or beloved ones, we could allow the heart – and thus our soul – to speak more freely. This statement may sound trivial and “déjá vu”, but it isn’t.

Sexual Communication | Spirit 19

One could think that sex is not a taboo anymore. Till the bedroom light darkens.

When you ask ten people about their most embarrassing moments in life, eight will answer you with a story about nudity or sex. No matter that we can talk freely about sex; we draw the line where people can watch, hear or smell us during the “act”. Even with our fixed partner, we tend to pretend.

The objective of performance is dominating our perception and behaviour. And it is not only with the masculine part of our population that targets like “1-hour penetration” are the only valid criteria of success. Also the female part can be conditioned by the “number of orgasms” they can achieve. Another fake target is the “romantic copulation”.

Sadness after separation: when it should stop…

{jcomments on}Lady W. (50) tells me whilst covered in tears: “My husband left me 4 years ago for a 10 year younger woman. As a result of that I started the divorce. But since then my life became without meaning, I cry a lot, I have no energy, I feel bad. I consult doctors because of my sleep disorders, I eat too much and I have regular headaches. I don’t know how to continue my life, I have no fun anymore in my work and I started taking pills to cope with this world. At occasions I take to the bottle. What’s wrong with me?”

LOVE in ACTION Weekend in La Pared | Spirit 19

1The OSHO Humaniversity and Maya Widmaier, the founder of the “OSHO Love Meditation Retreat Centre La Ventana” in La Pared organised together an intense meditation weekend with Veeresh.

The Field of Energy

In previous editions, we have treated several “established truths” and we have tried to show you that these truths are in fact our individual interpretations of the environment in which we live and think and that these interpretations can have a significant influence on ourselves and on the quality of our life.

The Secret of Good Partnerships

Our civilisation today has evolved in many ways, compared to ancient times, but nevertheless we still are searching for the holy grail of a good partnership. Since the time of pharaohs, Greek philosophers and roman emperors, mankind is puzzled by the secret of love.

If we may generalise on a worldwide scale then one important element in human behaviour though has shown an immense evolution: the emancipation of women and the resulting respect for them. This evolution lifted “the weak sex” onto an equal level as that of the man, and provided the indispensable condition for a successful quest for a balanced partnership. But it has some consequences, just like personal freedom invites you to generate your own judgements.

ARTIS TIRMA – a new Center of encounter

IMG_3033The Centro Artis Tirma, next to the gas-station of Tarajalejo, at the foot of the impressive mountain Caracol, has big rooms for Workshops, Seminars and other events. It hosts a Meditation-Pyramid, a big Labyrinth and a Zen-Garden. For the inauguration of the Centro Artis Tirma, Wednesday, november 12, 17 h, the wellknown artist and geomant Marko Pogacnik and other artists have been invited to build a Geopunktur-Stonecircle for the Canary Islands, as it was used in magalith times.

Relaxation during Meditation

Relaxation can be achieved when a person is concentrating to relax; meditation can be achieved when a person is reaching a totality of consciousness without focussing on any task, or on any specific topic and thus achieving a reduction of unwanted mental interferences.

Conditioning and Health

In the following article, we try to demonstrate how and why our mind and its conditioning are affecting our general health and wellbeing. And how we can escape from its eventual negative influences.

A couple of years ago a scientist called Herbet Specter from the National Institute of Health carried out the following experiment: one population of mice was administered a chemical Poly-A-c, that strengthens their immune system. At the same time he exposed the mice to the smell of Camphor, another chemical. After a while, the mice were stimulating their immune system when they smelled Camphor. Another population of mice was administered the chemical Cyclophosphamide, that destroys the immune system. At the same time he exposed these mice to the smell of Camphor. After a while these mice started to destroy their immune system when they smelled camphor. He now had 2 groups of mice: one group smells camphor and stimulates their immune system and the other group smell camphor and destroys their immune system.

Thoughts and Information

The Canadian scientist Wilder Penfield, Neurologist and Nobel Prize winner eliminates brain tumours by surgery. When he opened the brain of his patients, he examined the functioning of their brain by stimulating certain areas of it by administering very low voltage electricity. The aim was to find the control centre of the brain.
