8th March, 2012
As a healer, I come into contact with wonderful souls all over the world, seeking healing, understanding and insights into their challenges. They all share their stories and I learn something from each one.
I realise that I am not just a healer, offering service, but I am also a “listener”. Sharing our stories, our concerns and experiences, make us all heal and grow. There is no healer in the end and no patient as we more or less put up mirrors in front of ourselves to see who we truly are. We just need a trigger, a catalyst to set in motion our own inner knowing.
Often our worst fear is not believing in ourselves, our potential and magnificence. We seek permission from authority. But we are our own authority when it comes to our own lives, our Soul’s plan. How can we ask someone else about the subject closest to our hearts – our own purpose for being?
In his book “Your Soul’s Plan – Discovering the real meaning of the life you planned before you were born” (translated into many different languages), Robert Schwartz shares his research into many real life stories about the lessons we choose to learn through difficulties and challenges. Once we become aware of our soul’s infinite existence and our own planning before each incarnation, we will look at life with greater compassion.
It is time to open our “egos”, tell our stories and then release them to the universe. Maybe we do not need them any more? Ask yourself what you really want to do to be of service in these exciting times of The Shift!
Today is the International Women’s Day. Enjoy!

28th February 2012
Today, Tuesday 28th February 2012, I am sitting at my desk after a sunny but cold day, with a near-half moon somewhere above me in the dark velvet sky.
I turn on my computer, inspired to start writing a book that has been awaiting its time, a story about Adriana. She was born this evening but she appeared in my life about a year ago. I am excited. What does she want to tell me and the world?
While browsing my computer for the start of the story I wrote some time ago, I came across an announcement I made and distributed in my local area: New Year Greetings 2011. It now dawns on me that life is a wondrous flow of energy and that we need to connect.
First of all, a view from my office window taken earlier and then a copy of my annoucement:
NEW YEAR GREETING 2011
In the New Year it is my intention to invite people into my home, Sunlight House, to create “Logos on Earth”, a place where we meet, share and enjoy “well-being” as a foundational resonance for peace and unconditional love. The first meeting will take place on: Thursday 6th January 2011 at 4 pm at Sunlight House.
The idea of such “Logos on Earth” meetings has sprung from my work as a Creative Artist and Missionary of Life. An extract from my website: www.sunlightnetwork.se follows. Step by step we are creating and becoming the peace we want to see in the world.
Release – No. 30
23rd January, 2009
In my life I find a shift away from the popular concepts of abundance, finding a perfect life partner, seeking happiness to ultimately live in bliss. Even the concept of New Age seems out-moded as we are integrating into a new era of cultural awareness.
Mankind is heading somewhere and fast. It is time to wake up and prepare ourselves individually and collectively. The word culture translates into civilisation, society, traditions, customs, way of life, etc. It is a foundation upon which we base our every day living. But things do not appear to be as they used to. Time to change.
Living in Greece a few years ago my partner Panos and I often reflected over sustainable life styles. We enjoyed a simplistic way of living. The elements of fire, water, earth and air were fundamental. Respect for Mother Nature and Her free gifts were also essential. We found that we needed very little in the way of materialistic means in order to enjoy a healthy and rich life style.
Also here in Sweden I have adapted a simple life style, growing my own vegetables during the summer months, taking care of fruit and berries as they ripen, making jams, etc.
Apart from the survival aspect of every day living, there is the human need for culture, nurturing and stimulating ourselves and each other. People need to meet, not just at cultural events where entertainment is laid on, but just to talk and exchange ideas. I have noticed many “organic” groups forming without dogmas or hidden agendas.
Sunlight Network has nurtured this concept over the years and arranged numerous events where people meet in a relaxed atmosphere, sharing information, our talents and gifts.
Unfortunately Panos is no longer with us as he passed on some twelve months ago but he helped me instigate the concept of “Logos on Earth”, a meeting space for philosophical and educational conversations. At the same time these will act as healing and nurturing retreats. We established one in Greece and I have also established one here in Sweden. I will continue to develop these, knowing that the spirit of Panos is with me.
Wishing you all a culturally fulfilling and nurturing New Year!

ALL HEARTS’ DAY
14th February, 2012
This morning when I opened my e-mails I was reminded that today is the Day of Love. Valentine’s Day or, as we say in my native country Sweden, All Hearts’ Day.
Appropriately I received this beautiful artwork from the talented artist Sushima of Sweden.

I also received a message from Patricia Cota-Robles: ”Miracles are Happening” www.eraofpeace.org which I have pasted as Release No. 55 on my website www.sunlightnetwork.se. Here we can download programmes for our Planetary Cause of Divine Love.
Yes, I feel filled with Love this day as I embrace my faithful partner and friend, my dog Julius.

BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE!
5th January, 2012
At the beginning of the year I received a Newsletter from the Self-Realization Fellowship with an extract from a talk given on New Year’s Eve in 1934 by its founder, Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952). It provided me with perfect inspiration:
“Make new determinations as to what you are going to do and what you are going to be in this next year. Set a program for yourself; carry it through, and you will find how much happier you will be.” The full text then continues. Please also read his all-time-classic: Autobiography of a Yogi.
I also drew a Goddess Guidance Oracle Card (by Doreen Virtue) for the New Year: Aine – Leap of Faith: “Take a risk and put your heart’s true desire into action!”
This is what I am doing: Being what I want to be and putting my true desire into action. The result you will find on my new website (official launch tomorrow 6th January):
Amma Magi – The Oracle of Healing www.AmmaMagi.com
Now, have you thought what you want to be?
Happy New Year 2012!

2nd December, 2011
This is my personal blog about my daily living and today I want to share two things that uplift me:
First, a message from The Findhorn Community in Scotland, which celebrates 50 years as a community (www.findhorn.org), which arrived this morning:
Guidance from Eileen Caddy
Be Open to New Thoughts, New Ideas, New Ways
Be open to new thoughts, new ideas, new ways. You must expect the New and be willing to throw much of the old
out of the window. This will not be easy at times and you will need My help to enable you to do this. Let Me enlighten you, be not afraid to try something entirely
New and unorthodox. You need the freedom of the Spirit, therefore raise your
consciousness, open up your heart and accept the truth and the truth shall set
you free, and you shall know the true meaning of the Freedom of the Spirit. You are moving into new realms of knowledge, of understanding. Blessed is he who can accept the New, who is humble and open enough to do so.
2 December 2011
One of the co-founders of the Findhorn Community, Eileen Caddy, received guidance from the "still voice within" and shared it with others in the community for more than 40 years. Today we continue this tradition by printing her guidance in the community's weekly newsletter and by sharing it with the wider world through this mailing list.
When I read “Me” in the above message I read “my Higher Self”, or me as God in Form, not an external source.
Second, the new “Me” I am discovering comes through my continued search as I make spiritual growth my number one priority. I am enrolled in “The Nine Pillars of Power” course by Owen Waters through his website www.infinitebeing.com. From spiritual awakening to awareness and then on to soul consciousness … this is my new way.
Owen is an old and trusted friend who is working with The Lord Protector of The Shift and a team of Ascended Masters in creating this helpful personal course. It started yesterday, Thursday 1st December, and goes on for nine weeks with a new lesson every Thursday. The last date to sign up is on Monday 5th December 2011. Hurry if you want to catch this momentous opportunity:
There is a scent of wood-burning smoke in the air from the olive fields around and the chimneys of the beautiful stone-houses here in Mani. Winter is approaching while the sun keeps shining.
Enjoy the magical month of December!

WHAT IS GOING ON?
27th October 2011
Two weeks, that is all. I was away from my home in Greece for a fortnight, travelling right across Europe by car to Sweden. In those two weeks I was exposed to more, experienced more than I would have done staying “at home”. The world hit me. I feel more alive.
Returning just a few days ago I still have not caught up with checking all my e-mails and reading new information awaiting me. Instead I have noticed a change in my list of priorities. I allow myself to move along slowly but with greater awareness.
Gratitude and joy fills my Heart.

3rd October 2011
Yes, for whom am I living my life? Who is the beneficiary of my thoughts and actions? Does it really matter what I do?
How I interpret the world depends on my own self-empowerment. Victim or master? Every day I am being bombarded with other people’s thoughts and ideas of what is right and wrong. Now I am practicing discernment. What does my inner wisdom tell me? From that perspective I am integrating with the world because we are all One.
Meanwhile I am available for workshops at the Spirit of Life Center here in Greece. Just contact me on email@example.com or Kerry on firstname.lastname@example.org and register your interest. I offer one-to-one intensive coaching or dynamic group sessions. The subject: Create the Song of your Soul through creative writing and storytelling. Check out www.thespiritoflife.co.uk
I will end by sharing a recent message I received:
“Earn a living doing what you love,” said the Master.
“But it’s going to be risky,” sighed the student.
“Being one’s Self involves no risks. Being one’s Self is the ultimate truth. Anything else is a deception,” the Master replied.

5th September 2011
On Saturday I took part in a local Bazaar, selling second-hand books. It was fun. Actually I have a surplus stock left over of “La Pucelle – the Real Joan of Arc” by Ada Ruth Dogger, published by my own company Genie Quest Publishing before it closed down. A pile of these formed the central piece of the table with a special offer. These books have been hidden in my loft for many years and I was glad to bring them out into the light again.
One man listened intently as I explained the background to this unique edition, written in autobiographical style as if Joan herself is telling us her story. The information is actually based on historical records found in the National Archives of France and written by a contemporary of Joan. It is a beautifully produced book of nearly 400 pages. About half an hour later the man returned. “I sat down to have a coffee and thought of what you said. Now I have come back to buy that book.”
We just don’t know when our light shines.
Anyone interested in purchasing a copy, please e-mail me on email@example.com Bargain half price at ten euro plus postage. It certainly brings history alive, better than any Hollywood movie.
Life is work and pleasure at the moment as summer lingers on into September here in Greece.
