6. The Path along the Southern Milky Way and Initiation in the Life Worlds

The flow of clear stars through the Milky Way

This path can only be seen partially on the northern hemisphere. It is the clear belt of stars that descends between Taurus and Gemini and again comes above the Zodiac in between Scorpio and Sagittarius. The first part is well visible for us: besides Orion we see the clear stars Alcyon in the Little Dog, and especially Sirius in the Great Dog. Between these flows the southern Milky Way. The clearest part, around the fivefold star constellation Ship Argo, is invisible at our latitudes.

Star_road_Milky_WayThe name of the Milky Way is not chosen for nothing. Right above Taurus in the Milky Way stands the Wagoner, with as its clearest star Capella, or ‘Goat’. So a male goat, and these animals give very pure milk. The mother milk of the higher mammals and of us humans is a physical effect of the life forces that come from the Milky Way, and that nourish us in such a way that we not only have a soul and a spirit in our physical body, but also a life body, in which we let run our physiology, so digestion, breaking down and digestive processes in the water of the body. At death this life body leaves, and those processes stop in such a way that your body ultimately falls apart. With a shortly deceased you still can see often radiate its soul and spirit around and predominantly above the physical body, but the life processes have stopped by then. In Star Wars these life forces coming from the Earth (or another planet) are called ‘The Force’. It is the basis that causes we can live on the Earth.

Initiation in the life worlds

Entering the life world without preparations is not something you can do like that. Neither can we observe our own life body with the usual senses. At the most around someone’s body in the evening twilight you can see lighting up very vague a kind of balloon, initially white but ever more pink. When you intensify this, you are observing in the life body of someone. In us is this body the place where live the own willing impulses. You only get these clear when you have done something (Schopenhauer’s will that only comes to a revelation by acting). Your own thoughts that are stored here in the memory (in the proteins of the muscles) you only get clear when start to move (which is called in politics the walking corridor). When we dream at nights, our soul and spirit leave the body, and the life body then maintains the life. When your soul and spirit return and they do not directly connect with the life body, the extra-corporal events are not impressed in the life body, and then you do not remember your dreams. So you do the other way around.

In ancient Greece observing in the life world was preceded by a big preparation. This is told in the path of the deceased, who had to cross river the Lethe (oblivion). If you did this consciously and by life, you first had to drink the beaker of forgetfulness so that you did no more remember how the earthly relations are, for the laws and workings in the life worlds and still higher are of entirely different nature (something that is forgotten with most of the UFO observations; these are being explained physically). After this you had to drink the beaker of remembering of how it was before your birth, when you still were in those higher worlds. Like this you could find the way in the life world, and later on also the way back. Then you drank the beakers turned around.

Now this entire story of initiation stands expressed at the sky by the star constellations in and around the southern Milky Way. I describe these here short.

Just under the Zodiac in the southern Milky Way you first meet three star constellations: the Little and the Great Dog, and the Unicorn.

Unicorn is the illusion of the earthly, which does not help you on in the higher worlds; the Indians call this maia, veils of illusion of the material world.

-Above this and at the right stands the Lesser Dog, and this is the archetype for your own little waiter op the threshold. This stature is made by your own higher spirit together with your angel, and shows you all your imperfections in one, so your so-called double, on which you first have to work before you can enter undamaged the strong life forces in your own organs and as well can handle these. This is a protection for the initiation in yourself. This waiter walks always besides you on your further paths, and shows you where you still need to work on yourself. And while we not always feel for working on ourselves, we project its workings in ‘the evil’ that then is in the other instead of in ourselves. The media manipulation gratefully plays on this.

-Under the Unicorn stands the Greater Dog, archetype for the big waiter on the threshold to the other worlds, now more outside of ourselves. It is the overall of forces and qualities we already have developed, and this stature holds up the promise to us that we still can grow bigger when we for to develop us further inwardly and explain ourselves with the higher worlds. The clearest star in this constellation, Sirius, is connected to Mother Carey, or Isis Sophia who represents our Mother Earth. According to common astronomy this is the closest standing star.

-Parting from the Little Dog, under the Zodiac and above the Milky Way, stands the long star constellation the Great Water Snake, with besides it the Beaker and the Crow. The Great Water Snake is the archetype for our desire, and this has condensed into our intestine system, with which we digest and transform our earthly, so that we have fuel and building substances. This is the river Lethe from the Greek saga, for here under the diaphragm we are not conscious of our life processes.

-Above the Great Water Snake you first pass along the Beaker: This is the beaker of oblivion. Translated in the intestines, this is the pancreas, which excretes all the enzymes with which we can break down the proteins and sugars from our nutrition, in such a way that these can be transported over the intestine wall. And thus ‘forget’ themselves.

-The Crow is the beaker of remembering. Physically translated in the intestines these are the sour salts from the gallbladder, with which fat is divided in very tiny bulbs, so that it can pass over the intestine wall and remembers itself again in the liver what it was, namely fuel for our physiological processes.

-The Great Water Snake ends in the Wolf, a chaotic heap of stars gathered without a clear form. This is the archetype for the chaotising workings of digested nutrition: Dung on a field gives a larger harvest because it chaotises and thus makes vivid the bottom. As such is the wolf also the image of our inner teacher, for only through chaos can we come to a change, if not we stay stuck in the comfort zone of habits.

-Under the Great Dog stands the Dove, deep down at the southern starry sky. It shows a slated rising up line and a somewhat waving horizontal star line. It is the archetype for our conscience, which dwells in the heart and is connected to the middle nerve node in it. We weigh what comes unto us with what this arouses in our willing as reactions, and like this we come to actions or don’t. The Dove shows you the possibilities to this.

-Slanted besides and under the Dove stands the Easel. This star constellation stands close to the South Pole of the starry sky, is light feeble and stretches from the zones of Taurus until Leo. It stands slanted under the Ship Argo. It has to do with the reflective faculty in our consciousness of the processes in the life worlds, in and around us. You can develop that faculty by schooling of your chakras.

-Downward passed over both Dogs Honden the Milky Way continues in the fivefold star constellation the Ship Argo. This is the center of the Milky Way, so also the center of the life forces that originate here. The overall star constellation is the great archetype for our life body. In the Greek myth of Jason and the Argonauts Jason sails out to acquire the golden fleece. This is the skin of the Ram, which means the astral skin of consciousness around the life body through which you can observe what comes into you and what goes out as life gestures and beings. This is the archetype of the Grail, our developmental being. Jason however was lazy and did not conquer this golden fleece by himself, but let his wife Medea steal it for him. After this he sails away from that place and is attacked by sea robbers, after which the ship with all and everything sinks to the bottom of the sea, the collective sub-consciousness. So the Ship Argo is the archetype for our consciousness in the life body, that has sunk deep down in the sub-consciousness. The Germanics called this life body with its potencies in which our ego could stand up, the life tree Yggdrasil or ‘I’-carrier. And the five parts of the constellation Ship Argo cohere with the modifications of the life tree in us, which you can find back in the different organ systems in us, our own inner trees, each one a differentiation of the paradisial life tree in our organ systems.

*Argo-Stern: This partial star constellation shows like an ascending cage, as is as well the shape of a 17th century ship. In the back part of such a wooden ship as it was used in the 16th and 17th century (the time that the southern star constellations were being named during the sea journeys to the southern hemisphere), amongst others there is the caboose, the kitchen and dining room. You find here as well the bridge with the steering wheel, from where it is conducted. You find back these workings on an inner level in the legend of Parcival, as it is told by Wolfram von Eschenbach. He sees in the Grail castle that the Grail, a chalice, goes around along all thee tables, and the knights and ladies give it the best of all spices, so that they honor these. This is the archetype for all inner organs, which send of their finest life forces, the life ether, to the hypophysis or pituitary gland, our ancient clairvoyant eye, or our Grail chalice, through which it is honored and can become clairvoyant anew. Thus forms the Stern the inner digesting tree with intestine canal and inner organs, which all feed the hypophysis, our Grails chalice, with the finest life ether substances.

*Argo-Keel: This partial star constellation shows the carrying stem of the Ship Argo that cleaves its way through the (life) waters. With our first breathing we take in our soul in us. This impresses itself on the brain cortex, which is different for each human in its plies and lobes, and an exact imprint of the planet positions at that moment. This is a blueprint of our earthly destiny, expressed in the positions of the planets and stars. This tissue still grows on for a half or whole year via our nerves until in our muscles. Thus forms the nerve-sense tree from our brains. And this forms the matrix for our body and fate in our earthly life, the keel for our further earthly development.

*Argo-Compass: This small partial star constellation of Ship Argo forms a star line that splits in two downward. It is the archetype for our intuitive forces, die light up suddenly like in a flash, and then again disappear, but do form the guideline for our acting. So like an inner compass. It coheres with the small brains, which conduct our life processes from out of the parasympathetic nerve system and the hormonal regulation of soul processes in us, which usually runs unconscious, for it is conducted by our angel. It gives us a key to act from suddenly lighting up insight, so a key to train with our intuitive faculties, which are the highest which we as humans can develop.

*Argo-Sails: This partial star constellation has the shape of a parallelogram, so it has to do with the earthly-physical. The sails a ship form the propulsion, the energy to motion, which comes from the wind, so the air. In us the lungs absorb oxygen and thus give us the life forces upon which base run our physiological, life processes. So you can see the sails of this star constellation as the lung tree in us, that part of the life tree that gives us prana or ch’i, life. This is transposed to our entire organism by the small blood circulation, which is also enriched with the sense impressions. The lung tree also coheres close with the tree of the small blood circulation.

*Argo-Flying Fish: this partial star constellation forms a group of stars that is connected with the Keel of Ship Argo, as if it penetrates in it. A flying fish brings the life forces of the water to the air and therewith at the light, so at the consciousness. In our lymph lives the primal astrality in which are also based the desires. So the star constellation coheres with the lymph tree in us, and gives keys for development through that we can become conscious of our soul dregs and by transforming this we can develop on.

-Slanted above the Ship Argo, in the ascending line of the southern Milky Way, stands the Centaur. It encloses the star constellation Southern Cross. As star constellation it shows a few striving up and joining star lines, forming in a kind of arrow upward. In the Greek myths was the centaur half horse, half human. It cohered with the taming of the life forces, like you see now adolescent girls struggling with the taming of their sexuality in the breaking of horses. And this is where the centaur as star constellation stands for: the taming and erecting of the life forces, which in itself are very wise, but initially wild and untamed. This offers tool for inner development by controll of the will.

-The Southern Cross is a kind of quadrangle and it stands between the legs of star constellation Centaur, as was it his cross. It coheres with the wheel of karma. If you only run after your desires and thrives, you stay captured within the laws of karma. If you want to rise above this, it is good to behold your thrive life and from where you stand, transform this to a higher state. Of course only if you feel the inner need to this. The Southern Cross can keep this before you to develop on.

The small star constellation the Set-square nowadays only consists of two visible stars, but it was discovered there were seen three, standing rectangular to each other; hence its name. It is one of the few objects that were seen at the sky. Assuming that the 17th century sea travellers had enough imaginative and inspirational forces so that they could also perceive the meaning of a star constellation, this star constellation coheres with the geometric shapes in our life body, which however have been formed out too much, so are hardened. Our life flows, going out from the navel lotus, form the life paths upon which base we think. Through our education there have come into these hardenings by the dogmas and moralisms that have been imprinted to them. To this gives Set-square tools, to be able to look at these and soften them, transform, so that we become receptive again for the workings from the cosmos and higher angel hierarchies.

-The three star constellation Compasses as well stands close to the ascending branch of the Milky Way. It coheres with our present-day Euclidian world vision, through which we experience ourselves as a middle point, the world and other people as a periphery. The star constellation helps us to become conscious of ourselves, but as well see the limitations of this, so that we can develop a more social consciousness for man and the Earth.

The star constellation Southern Triangle is actually a quadrangle (earth directed) as a parallelogram wherewith the upper two stars stand closely together. It stands under the ascending Milky Way. A triangle indicates spiritual creation, a quadrangle the earthly. In us is this the archetype from where we can re-create ourselves, so it coheres with the regenerative cells in the gonads and in the perineum, where still can be found back our primal stem cells. This forms the basis for heredity, and gives tools to transform ourselves entirely until in the physical plan.

-The star constellation Altar shows two parallelograms (quadrangles) on each other, which have been shifted to each other. This gives the image of a double transformation of the earthly. It is the archetype for the liver, in which all earthly substances from the guts (sugars, vats and amino acids) are being transformed into fuels (sugars and fats) and body-own substances (proteins). With these we form as well as transform ourselves; every 7 years all body tissues are replaced entirely, so we are only moment pictures in our physical appearance, and constant in change, development. The Altar gives indications and tools to this.

-The three starry light feeble constellation Southern Crown stands between the legs of the Archer, Sagittarius. It shows a bended chalice slanted down. this indicates that it has to do with clairvoyance in the life worlds. To this give the Southern Triangle us the key.

-The small star constellation Telescope, of which there are only two stars visible with the naked eye, shows a line downward. Like the Compasses and Set-square, it is an object that has been viewed at the sky. It indicates clairvoyant observation and the amplifying the attention when you peer into the life worlds.

– The Milky Way continues its path between the Scorpion and Sagittarius to the northern starry sky, and in it or nearby stand the star constellations Snake Tamer, Snake’s Tail, Eagle, Arrow, Swan, Cepheus and Cassiopeia. This however is a different path of development, which I have worked out in the previous blog.

Your initiation?

All the described star constellations in or at the southern Milky Way in one way or another have to do with the conscious going of the path through the life worlds. And at this moment of the human development, now that with the winter solstice of 2012 the path of our consciousness through the heart has been reinforced, is this the path which we will follow in the centuries to come. Ever more people are born for who this path stands open. Ever more young people perceive elemental beings and angels in these life worlds, and sometimes also the deceased persons that stayed lingering in them. Finishing these people as hallucinating and shoot them full of psychiatric drugs is no solution. Giving them good guidance in their observations does however. And this is what we do in the Jasper School, individually as well as in groups as a process. Besides in house and landscape healings, for we also have destroyed many life patterns on the Earth by ignorance (or greed). Here lays an important hesitation for many people to take their observations serous, for when you know you not only have to deal with the physical worlds, and are being carried the life worlds and still higher ones, gives a larger responsibility for your deeds. For destroying things, profit from it or leaving behind your garbage in nature suddenly has bigger consequences as what your conscience already indicated by gnawing inside.

5. The Northern Starry Sky and our Consciousness Development

Image formation

Until now all the big leading cultures predominantly had their center on the northern hemisphere, above which the northern starry sky stands; this means above the Zodiac. In winter the northern people also see clear Orion, even though that star constellation stands underneath of the Zodiac, because here the Zodiac rises high at the sky. In ancient Egypt however this star constellation was seen as their god Osiris, who was killed and lived on in the underworld, which means the subconsciousness. They also saw in the southern star Sirius in the Big Dog Isis, their goddess of the Earth. And the star Alcyon in the Little Dog was for them the dog-god Anubis, waiter of the underworld. These are examples of how the northern starry sky coheres with the development of consciousness, if you know to read this well. The southern hemisphere of stars coheres more with the unconscious life world and its vegetative processes. See to this as well my first blog.

Concerning our post-Atlantic culture development: after the exits from Atlantis, that went down by water disasters, it continued via ancient India, of which the Veda’s and Upanishads are a last precipitation, Persia/Mesopotamia, with the Gilgamesh epos as a precipitation, Egypt, Greece, the Romans to the Germanics, who were guarded by the Celts. The Celts and Fins are the last peoples that left Atlantis. The Chinese as descendants of the last bog Atlantic culture of the primal Mongols, have conserved, guarded and further elaborated the knowledge about the life body and its processes. We encounter this now in the Tibetan Pön and in Taoism. The Celts as well had this knowledge and applied in a different way. You find back this weaving in the life world with the so-called wooden, metal and stone interlace, the wood cut work and cultic metal objects which they made, and after them their followers after the Germanics. This changing sequence of cultures went together with each time a change of consciousness, wherewith each time a certain limb of the soul was elaborated and made ready to receive around the year zero our spirit germ, to which we say from our 3rd year ‘I’, and start to work with it. Through it we were meant to awaken step by step form the group consciousness of family, clan and tribe, and up to an individual consciousness. To be able to ultimately become an independent spirit. In this development of the ego from out of the group consciousness we are still in the middle.

This path is carefully prepared from the mystery places. Thus there was from 1000 A.D. at the banks of the Eufrat just south of modern Turkey the central place of Marduk (who we now know as Archangel Michael). The members of the traveling caravans that passed by were incited to join their feasts. In the evening around a fire at sunset the family and tribe were honored. At sunrise the individual was honored. And in this way acknowledgement of the individual was slowly awoken. Ancient Greece know the ‘big mysteries’ on the island Samothrace. On it, you prepared yourself for over a year to ultimately speak out in smoke the names of the three ‘Kabyrs’, these are the representatives of the Mars-half of the Earth, until the year zero, the Mercury-half of the Earth, from that year, with in between the Christ-input of the ‘I Am’ for each human, which changed everything on Earth. These did appear in the smoke. When you had seen this, you acknowledged the sense of your earthly existence and could take on you your life tasks. See for the developmental stages stadia through which our cosmos goes my third blog, about the cosmic octave in us.

In the placement of the Egyptian pyramids as well as the Scottish mystery place you see a reflection of the northern star constellation the Swan, which coheres with the consciousness of the ego. The Celts had their central sanctuary in and around Newgrange in East Ireland. Here you were being initiated in the forces of the ego in midwinter already thousands of years before A.D. Avalon, near Glastonbury, had a direct inner connection with Knowth, situated next to Newgrange, where you were honored by twelve priests in your own spiritual qualities. The Celts in their earth bound mysteries, as the only ancient culture have also witnessed the death and resurrection of the Christ being. This stroke saint Patrick when in the fifth century he was sent by the pope to convert them: they already had their own form of Christianity, connected to the four elements. The Germanics had their central sanctuary at the Externsteine in the middle of Germany. Here the individual human ego at first needed to undergo a test of courage, to be initiated afterwards in the cosmos, with the help of twelve guardians who each carried a part of the still very delicate ego. The Germanics were prepared by the Celts to carry the ego totally conscious in their physical body; the peoples before them still carried this in a dreamy condition, cohering with their soul development of that moment. In the 6th century A.D. the Celtic-Christian monks built meditation towers, spread all over Ireland, in the shape of the northern star constellations the Big and Little Bear and the Dragon, and these constellations have to do with the erection of the spinal chord (the Dragon) through which the ego can become conscious in the brains (both Bears). Shortly after this Celtic Christianity, in as much it was not yet taken over by the papists, became the prey of the Normans, who funded an own kingdom in Ireland, through which this Celtic Christianity threatened to be lost externally. You also find this back in the legends of Avalon, which disappeared by the church-Christian tradition. Behind this however there hides a completely different though hidden knowledge. The Greek folk soul namely had offered itself for the formation of the external church. The Roman folk soul took care that the individual ego for each civilian could develop in a protected way, with the origin of the civil rights. And the Celtic folk soul offered itself for the progress of esoteric Christianity, with its branches amongst others in different monk orders, Manicheism, the Templars, Rosecrusians and Anthroposophy. These are the different steps of the Grail, which means the gradual inner development of animal via human to an angel consciousness.

And in this way you can trace back how culture was and still is conducted.

The five north polar star constellations

Now the development as can be read from the northern starry sky.


The Little Bear now heeds the North Pole; in the course of this century it will move to the star constellation Cepheus. The earthly North Pole circulates through five star constellations during the world year of about 21.000 earthly years.

You can consider these five north-polar star constellations as archetypes for our bodies. And from their subsequent exodus from Atlantis in relation to the north-polar star constellations have arisen from this the different human races, who each have developed strongly a specific body. As follows:

– The Dragon has to do with incarnation until in the physical body, and as such with the planet Saturn lays out our spleen process. Through it we can work out our willing impulses and write our deeds in the blood as memories. A dragon is in many myths a fire-spitting monster with a golden treasure: it imagines the promise of incarnation as a possibility for growth by getting to know the ego fire and learning to control it. In Atlantis these Saturn-mysteries were guarded by what we now know as the Red Indians. They cohere with an experience of unity of the spirit. These guardians sailed out westward: the Indian race know their Great Spirit as the undivided God. Their most important task is explaining themselves with death. They are strongly connected to the physical body.

Cepheus has to do with the physical body which you make to your own home, with the memory in it; hence the link is made with the archetypal Adam, It is a precipitation of the planet Mars that lays out in us the gallbladder process, by which we can create space for ourselves and our impulses. the coheres with the primal Mongolian race, that brought much knowledge from Atlantis about the life body from out of an ancestral memory, and through this also much knowledge about the life forces and energy.

– The Swan has to do with the awakening of the ego in the astral body, the ego consciousness, and cohering with this the becoming conscious of life and death. It coheres with the planet Venus who lays out in us the kidney process: connected to her is the Australian race, the aboriginals. Their didgeree doo music helps you to descend in your lymph flows by a dream-like consciousness, and thus find the guidance of the own Angel, as well by singing that shows them the way.

– The Lyre imagines the music that your higher ego plays on the soul through the intestines, through which you can work out your karma; or the image of the soul that plays on the life body. This coheres with the planet Mercury who lays out the lungs in us and as well the navel-chakra, with which you conduct your life body. The brown African race has to do with this impulse: the African lives mostly from out of the life body with its very differentiated rhythms.

– The Little Bear, just like the Big Bear is a box on a stem, coheres with the brains, and the Little bear specifically with the vegetative small brains. You can see the brains and the nerve system as the physical outworking of the astral body. This coheres with Jupiter who laid out in us the liver process and the nerve system. Cohering with this is the development of the primal Semitic race, so the Indians, Arabs, Jews and white peoples. In them the nerve system is dominant, which amongst others appears from out image of the atom, consisting of a dense kernel, with very far away around it the electrons as loads: this is the reflection of a nerve cell with its long offshoots that transfer loads. We make images of what we are ourselves. It makes this race suited to refine observations in the physical world and explain itself with it, just like modern science tends to do. And thus develop technique. When this race does not develop itself inwardly, with the degeneration it becomes the apocalyptic blond beast from the sea, which coheres with the implosion of the consciousness in nerve system, making us a slave of greed and desires, in short the primal thrives. Nazi Germany has been a prelude to this.

The northern Circle of Heroes

The development of our consciousness began when we started to take use of our senses, for which Hercules stands, via the development of ego-conscious man in Perseus who marries with the human soul in the body, Andromeda, until the three spirititual faculties of clairvoyancy, imagination, clear hearing and feeling, where to as well conducting, the inspiration, and clear willing, the intuition will be developed in the Snake Tamer Ophiochus. In that star constellation man can keep these three higher forms of consciousness together and gives the start to a new world cycle of development. It was or is each time half god who did before a task on the Earth so that entire humanity could copy this thereafter. That is why this group of northern star constellations is called the Circle of Heroes. Underneath I will discuss them on their sequence. With this you can trace a personality test within your own horoscope, ny looking at the positions of the Sun, moon and the planets. At the end below I will give you some tools to this.

Sequence of human development within the northern Circle of Heroes

Hercules looks like coming out of the head of the Dragon, and he stands with his head downward, as seen from the Zodiac. This is the image of the man who comes from the spiritual worlds and incarnates in the physical body in which he needs to take serve of his twelve senses. And in doing this he can chasten his thrives. You find this back in the tale of the twelve works Hercules had to accomplish to put straight that he once killed a man out of rage.

– The Snake’s Head and Northern Crown – these two constellations are closely related. The Snake erects itself and inclines to the Northern Crown, which is like an open chalice upward. This is the consciousness in the head, which initially still was open to the cosmos, and even today at birth we still are a bit open at the skull, until our fontanels close. These star constellations together have to do with the Greek sage of Ariadne who had spun a thread for Theseus so that he could find the way back from the labyrinth (the brain windings). In the labyrinth lived the Minotaurus, half man half bull, who each time demanded a human sacrifice. This creature is an image for the strong digestive forces in the pituitary gland, causing we could not think clearly (we still have this a little after we a heavy meal). Through that Theseus killed the Minotaurus, these digestive forces in the head were lessened and you can always think clearly when you are awake. The labyrinth was situated on Crete; that lay in between the culture of Small Asia and Europe/Greece, and it formed a culture of transit. The gestures of the Snake’s Head and Northern Crown you also find back in the functional tissues of the kidneys; the islands of Bowland and the tubes of Malpighi, which together excrete the finished protein substances, axtract the soul forces and send these to the head. Because of this we can observe and think clear.

-The Bear Tender (Boötes) has to do with the erection of the life body, through which we can act as well when standing or sitting. The plant works with this in such a manner that it can grow toward the Sun. The star constellation also coheres with Dyonisos who introduced the wine cultivation. Through the hangover after drinking you incarnate ever deeper in the physical body, and this was very necessary at that time.

-The Hair of Berenice represents ancient virginal wisdom that was lost through drinking alcohol and thereupon incarnation.

-The Hunting Dogs (Canes Venatici) cohere with the sense of smelling and tracing, a sense organ that is connected to morality: this is what makes man to a human, because we not only think, but weigh our thoughts and acts with the conscience. A faculty that was given to us already at an early stage of development.

– The Big Bear or Dipper, a box on a stem, coheres with our large brains, through which we can think and erect us. The Big and Little Bear together clasp the tail of the Dragon: the large and small brains can erect the spinal chord through their clearness and tus we can develop our clear day-consciousness. Because it stands the above the Lion, it is as well the reflection of the heart in which impressions and willing impulses come together, or rather the three nerve ganglions that cohere with the moral heart functions feeling for truth (the top one), the will for the good (the lowest) and the conscience (the middle one). These three together make up the heart’s rhythm. The star constellation is seen as the place where Christ was carried into our cosmos, and the seven brighter stars in this constellation then are seen as the seven Rishi’s, the teachers of mankind who prepared His coming and incarnation.

– The Little Lion (Leo Minor) underneath of the Big Bear coheres with the pericardium, which screens off the heart from too much influences from the outside. Through this our heart can carry our spirit germ, our ego.

– The Lynx is a next step in the development. It coheres with the darkness on heaven’s mountain, and therefor with closing off, the formation of skins, contours, enclosing surfaces, evil, the separation. Here the consciousness is no longer the ‘we’, but the ‘I and the other’. Death’s fear which coheres with the cat-like animals becomes conscious here at humanity.

– The Wagoner (Auriga) has the shape of our larynx, with which is coheres as well. It has to do with the taming and controlling, directing of the life forces, and these can thus lead tot word forces, so speach. Through the word we can express our spirit force on the Earth in communication; we can give words to ideas and thus transmit these.

– The Giraffe has a kite shape and has to do with the thyroid gland, situated before the throat (like the Wagoner it stands in the zone of star constellation Taurus, the archetype for the throat). This helps us to form and maintain our physical body. This you will notice when there is something wrong. Bone decalcification Parkinson’s disease can be the effects.

Perseus is the archetype for the human that erects and thus becomes completely aware of itself. In the Greek myth he kills Medusa, a goddess of destiny: from her neck arise snakes (these are old wisdom forces of the life body), the silver sword of the intellect, and the poet horse Pegasus, meaning the clairvoyant imaginative thinking that is freed from the body.

– The Northern Triangle that stands above the Ram is the stamp of God, Dios, upon creation. The start and closing of the cosmos, which starts with the Ram.

Cassiopeia is the wife of Cepheus, where she stands underneath, and both were the rulers of Ethiopia in the Greek myth. She is the general human soul which still is not individualized, and hence without being able to act (she is seen at the sky hand wringing). It is the condition of our soul when before our descent to the Earth we meet our kindred at the Sun, are melt together with and work on one another so that later on Earth we can meet out of the soul recognition and the feelings this calls forth.

Andromeda is hanging upside down on the rocks (the physical body) and can be swallowed by the Whale underneath of the Zodiac, or connect with Perseus (the human ego) who rescues her, so that they get seven children together: image for the ego with its three soul limbs and three spirit limbs. She stands above the Fishes, so the constellation is very important for this time, namely being the archetype for our consciousness soul which can become conscious on the physical body. Their children you can recognize in the star constellations that come after both. Let’s first make this clear: the era of the Fishes has only started in 1417 with the Renaissance. At present the vernal point of spring stands at 5 degrees in the Fishes, and it will still last 360 years before this enters Waterman. Then it will need about a 1000 years before there will come an initiate that completely lives into this impulse and wakes it up. And then it will take about 500 years before it will be absorbed by humanity as a whole. Our culture period has started when Parcival could make himself to a Grail king by falling and rising up again, around the year of 950 A.D. This was first picked with the Renaissance, about 500 years afterwards.

-The Lizard (Lacerta) represents the choice of freedom for man. It stands above and in between Andromeda and Pegasus, above the Fishes, and so it has to do with the present. It puts us the question: to where do you want to develop? Our time is about the division of mankind, from the direct question: do you go for the spirit (your own inner development) or for matter? Upward or downward? In our body this spiritual reality has condensed in the two uppermost neck vertebrae, the atlas and twister in the neck, through which we can freely move our head.

Pegasus, the poet horse, is our imaginative or spirit self faculty, with which we can have inner clearvoyant images that are free from the body. It is our next spiritual limb, equal to that of an angel, which can be worked out in the next Waterman culture time. The star constellation stands above the Waterman.

– The Foals are a continuation of Pegasus, and has to do with the rejuvenating thinking forces of the spirit self. You can experience this when you speak freely spiritual images: these nourish you and your audience, in opposition to abstract notions.

– The Dolphin, standing above the Goat, indicates the faculties of inspiration, or clear hearing, clear feeling and the faculty of conducting in life processes. This is called the life spirit and is equal to the consciousness of an archangel, who conducts and guides groups of people. In the Capricorn culture period we can elaborate this faculty further.

-The Arrow (Sagitta) stands at the border of Capricorn and Sagittarius. Together with the Eagle it forms our intuitive faculties to be developed, the forces of clear willing, or observing the willing germs to become within yourself, in other people and in the phenomena, and act after this in helping them realize. This faculty is called the spirit man, the magician and is equal to the consciousness of a time spirit. We can elaborate this further when the vernal point of spring enters Sagittarius. the Arrow is in this the body-freed intuitive thinking that has a strong penetrating force.

– The Eagle (Aquila), above Sagittarius, is the intuition that has become body free until in the actions, and that has formed itself back the Scorpion that has fallen in the beginning.

– The Snake Tamer (Ophiochus) carries all three the higher forms of consciousness within, and he can call to life the snakes, tame them, carry and conduct. Thus he becomes the start for a new Zodiac: he presses down the zodiacal star constellation of Scorpion. This one was the start of our world: the eagle and snake that decayed into a scorpion. So the magician. His shape is also cyclic, just like the entire Zodiac.

The Snake Tamer stands underneath of Hercules, however with the head up as being the end of an intire cycle of becoming and start for a new one. And with him is the Circle of Heroes at the northern starry sky complete.

Where do you stand now?

You can trace for yourself where your consciousness lays: planets that stand parallel with a star constellation indicate which organ in you needs to develop specific qualities, which are indicated by the star constellations above it. This can give you a personality test of your state development. It can be that je you still have to catch up with or fine tune what you ever slept over. The influence of the different celestial bodies:

The moon   – in the life, the brains as a reflection of the life processes

Mercury – the lungs and life body (the ancient Indian culture)

Venus – kidneys and astral body (the ancient Persian culture)

The Sun – heart and ego, our spirit germ (events around AD in Palestine)

Mars – gallbladder and sentient soul (Babylonian and Egyptian culture)

Jupiter – liver and intellect soul (Greek-Roman culture)

Saturn – spleen and consciousness soul (the present Fishes period, started in 1417)

Uranus – pituitary gland and spirit self, angel consciousness (future Slavic-Iranian culture)

Neptune – epiphysis and life spirit, archangel consciousness (future Californian culture)

Pluto – side-kidneys and spirit man, time spirit consciousness (a next future culture cycle)

4. The Paths in the Starry Sky to develop yourself inwardly

A beautiful maze of stars

In my first blog I explained that the star constellations are the cause of our ideals, taken along from them. But how do you find yourself back in that star-sewed night sky?

When you look up in the evening with a clear sky, you see at first an apparent maze of stars. You see groups of stars standing together, can pull lines and wonder about the silent expansion, that only is broken by a fallen star if you ‘re lucky (and one of the many satellites if you have less luck). Besides the two Bears, Orion and the Northern Cross the knowledge stops with most people. How do you get clarity in this? To this you need to realize well some observations, facts and feelings.

Firstly, when you open your heart, you can feel the closeness of the stars, so that far is not their world. Some people hear anew when certain stars rise above the horizon. That was much more common in the days of old. Pythagoras was the last person of whom this is known, and around 550 B.C. he developed our twelve tone system from it – see to this my second blog. In our language we still find back many of those direct connections to the stars. Someone can sing the stars from heaven, you can rise and beam like a star, and as well flower shapes are often seen as star gestures. Geometry has arisen from the stars, and their precipitation you find back in all natural realms, from gem stones to plant to animal shapes. Even the inner structure of our bones has the six angular star as its basic pattern. The Germanic runes have been brought down to Earth as condensed star language. E.g. the Germanic rune ‘B’ (Berkana) coheres with the constellation of Cassiopeia (I will once have a separate blog on this).


A Search for Ordering

From what is known from antiquity I found four star paths at the sky that appear to give you an access to different heavenly realms. After I had worked with these for several years I met the angel gate guardians of those realms. And later I found an affirmation of this in the known Chinese story of King Ape. Apparently their culture still knows the stargate guardians still from Atlantis, from where they as well have deep knowledge about the life forces. I elaborated this working with the star constellations in schooling methods, in which I work with the sounds and rhythms of the stars. I have the participants model out in clay what they observe inwardly, where they come in themselves, and which ideal is being awoken. See also my first blog. So what you read here is thoroughly tested. To find order, you can consider the following facts in their consequences:

-Our four bodies and their connections to the elements and natural realms (which we can experience strongly in the four advent weeks, for in them the angel detaches from those inner bodies):

  • The element earth is connected to our physical body, which we share with the mineral realm.
  • The element water is connected to our life body, which conducts the body juices in which our physiological processes play. We share this body with the plant realm, for plants have also a life body.
  • The element air with in it the light in al its coloring hues is connected to our soul, in which the feelings live (to the outside feelings are color, to the inside sound). We share this realm with the animals, that as well carry a soul.
  • The element fire is connected to our spirit, which conducts all the other bodies from the warmth. If we individualize this warmth, we call our spirit germ from early age ‘I’. It is our inner personal star light, and with it we can go an individual development. While we arde the only self-conscious spirit in a physical body, is the fourth natural realm the human realm. For that matter, there are different beings from parallel realms of the angels of heaven and earth often incarnated in this human realm.

-The star constellations make up our ideals, brought along from before birth. And with inner observation you can recognize their gestures within you and do these to come to those ideal forces. We do this by means of clay modeling. See for more about this my first blog.

-Stars and sounds are closely coherent. To this I worked out a method to determine their pitch by their distance to the eclipse, and their rhythm from their pace through the Zodiac (see blog 3). To this I had to develop star maps with the Zodiac as a center or focus. Here is one, with the Zodiac in the middle (the arrow indicates the direction of the Sun, Moon and planets):


Note: here the North and South pole of the Zodiac have been extended into a line. See for correct star maps underneath.

-When star constellations are being recognized as separate constellations in a certain culture, this means that they come to the consciousness in that culture. Many of the star constellations were known in antiquity, and we inhere this knowledge through Babylonians, Egyptians and Greeks. Only from the 16th century onwards we started to sail the southern seas, and many of the star constellations that you can see from the southern hemisphere have come to our acknowledgement since that time. This happened with the Flood Eridanus and connected to it the southern bird constellations. The Inca natives from South America know many birds at the night sky; here you see parallels.


The four Starry Ways

In accordance with the four human bodies and their relation to the four natural realms, I came to the following four separate starry ways:

1-Along the Zodiac. This path is connected to the development of our spirit, our ‘ego’ all through zodiacal zones. It is closely connected to the warmth breathing of the Sun all through the year (causing the four seasons in our moderate northern regions), and of the life breathing from the Moon during a month (influencing our soul moods). The movement of the Moon is more or less coherent with her pace through the Zodiac. The planets each heve their own tempo in direct and retrograde pace through the Zodiac, and we take along their forces as our inner organs (see to this my second blog). With their passage through the Zodiac all these heavenly bodies mediate the forces and qualities of the star constellations that stand north and south of the Zodiac and parallel to them. See the map above. The star constellations form our ideals, and during the passage of a planet or the Sun and Moon these star constellation ideals are being awoken (see again my first blog). This has to do with our spleen process, which regulates the making of blood cells in the bone marrow: here the relevant star constellation ideals that are warmth crystals in and around us, are being woven into the blood cell proteins as gestures. With these we can give shape to our life and form our biography.

2-Along the northern starry sky in relation to the Zodiac. This starry sky is coherent with our astral or soul body, in which our consciousness lives. The northern starry sky consists of the north-polar constellations Dragon, Little Bear, Cepheus, Swan (Northern Cross) and Lyre, and the so-called Circle of Heroes. This circle starts with Hercules and ends with the Snake Tamer standing under it. This starry path describes the entire development of human consciousness. This starts with making use of the physical body with the 12 senses in Hercules (the twelve works he had to accomplish to chasten his soul), runs via the Big Bear/Dipper – the thinking in the brains), Perseus as the human spirit that marries Andromeda, the human soul. And from this couple come the three spiritual faculties of imagination (Pegasos), inspiration (Delphin) and intuition (Eagle). The Snake Tamer is the archetype for man that has become whole in these three spiritual faculties. He steps in the Zodiac and pushes the Scorpion down, indicating he is the start of a new Zodiac in a new world to come. See the map below.


3-Along the southern Milky Way. This clear star path, which you can see lighting up on a cloudless night (and away from city lights), consist of the cosmic life streams that nourish all life on the Earth. Mother milk is an effect of this: the mother’s breasts are an expression of these life-bringing forces, and the sculptures of mother goddesses all have round shapes with full breasts as a result of this. Between Taurus and Gemini the Milky Way pursuits its path at the southern starry sky, and comes again above the Zodiac between Scorpio and Sagittarius. The southern starry sky is connected to the vegetative, plantlike forces on Earth. Likewise the path along the southern Milky Way is also the path through the mostly unconscious life worlds. The center of these life forces close to the zodiacal South Pole is the five-limbed star constellation Ship Argo; this is the counter-pole of the five north-polar constellations. This southern way coheres with our life body with its physiology and processes, which occur in the water of our body (this contains about 80 % of our physical body). With our day-conscious we are little aware of this, and only in our dreams there sometimes reflect archetypal workings from the sub-consciousness that come from our life body. With the rhythms of the life you can find an access to these (see my blog 3). And the star constellations along the southern Milky Way each indicate a partial aspect of the path all through your own life body. Like all our organs, our intestine tube is represented, in constellation Hydra, the Big Water Serpent, being accompanied by the Crow (archetype of the pancreas) and the Chalice (archetype for the gall bladder). There also stands the Altar, archetype of the liver. At the entrance you encounter the Small and Big Dog, these are the archetypes of our little and big guardian that can stop us from going the path in ourselves all through the life.


4-Around the Flood Eridanus. This is the largest star constellation at the sky. It stands underneath the zodiacal constellations Taurus, Aries, Pisces and Aquarius. Its mouth is near the constellations Orion and Hare. We can see at our latitudes in winter well Orio, the heavenly warrior, because Taurus and Gemini underneath of which he stands, stand high and well visible at the night sky. Eridanus is accompanied by four smaller constellations Oven, Goldfish, Watch and Net. And at its source stand the Little Water Snake and Phoenix. The entire celestial realm is coherent with our heredity and the flow of ancestors. So this starry path is connected the secrets of the inherited physical body, and the path of consciousness growth of its forces means descending consciously all through the organs and tissues until the levels of the cell, cell kernel and DNA. Through this you can discover the willing germs of becoming within yourself and other people. It coheres with the development of intuition. You thus go through the life germs of your germ cells. Phoenix is the uprising of the individual from the hereditary flow of family, clan and people. From Phoenix there follows a group of constellations that are indicated as the southern birds. These are all metamorphoses of the resurrection forces through the individual development from heredity.


This part of the starry sky only became known to us with our discoveries of the southern hemisphere by sea travels. Which means to say coming to our consciousness; in this case the forces of heredity. The middle ager still believed in spontaneous generation: when you left a pot of grain flower alone for some time, there arose flies from it just from the blue. Now we work with heredity until the level of DNA in our chromosomes.

In following blogs I tell more about the different starry ways, and how these cohere more concrete with your own inner development when you want to go this path.

In our educations Inner Development we go these paths

3. About Inner Music and the Cosmos; a Search for the Harmony of the Spheres

Experiences with clear hearing

My most important impulse to research the conection between inner music and the cosmos was an initiation in the owrkings of a cloud, around thirty years of age. This was very intense and made the change in my life, as for myself I did no longer fit in the close suit of the scientist and I started to investigate in my own way, most often through art. But when I think back, this one was preceded by more experiences.

As a child I felt the moods of other people without knowing it myself.

That was a practical survival mechanism. In nature I often had strong experiences of unity, like with sunrise and set. Initially I imagined this as a huge musical play, but realised ever more that I heard it as inner music. And acknowledging this during adolescence, I as well heard the moods when I entered a place, which before I only felt half conscious. During my studies in Biology I at once saw dancing movements around my reaction tube. And I saw through the forms and movements under my microscope entities that created and maintained these forms and movements. Knowing I was not hallucinating, and being in science, I had to investigate this further. I dug in books and old knowledge. After a long search in different esoteric directions I got to know that I observed elemental beings, and this you do not perceive with the known all-day senses. This is not quite popular in modern science, so I kept these observations for me. They hollowed out however my faith in science, as not telling the entire truth.

Then came the initiation in a cloud in sound, color and form. First I saw a heavy raincloud opening above the sea after a rainy day. I saw movements of hazes in it. And the next moment I had left my body and was in the middle of the workings of that cloud. I saw beautiful organic movements and shapes in very clear, vivid and light colors, contoured with gold. And I heard a very intense over-tonal sea of sound, as were it e thundering symphony with a huge orchestra and specifically a high rate of truth and significance. This was so overwhelming that my own being threatened to expand and dissolve in that sea of sounds. With pain I retreated myself until I came to my body and to myself. On the way back to my body I saw a very powerful and high being in the cloud, that let me go and said something like “Now you have seen and heard, do what you think good with this.” In a very sober way, while I had almost lost myself. I however felt that what I had experienced and observed was fully true, albeit that this was not on the physical level. Just as with my observations of the elemental beings before I knew I was not hallucinating, and that this was a much more intense experience than I had ever had in my body. After this I searched for more of these kinds of experiences, like standing in a playing carillon of the donjon in Bruge, Belgium. I never again could experience this so intense. I decided to make this path accessible to others as well, because he was so beautiful and true. But I realized as well that this should be in a moderate and well-dosed way, for you might loose yourself in it.

During my travels afterwards I heard ever more the inner music at places like Stonehenge, the coastal mountains of California (in which I recognized much of the music of the Mammas and Pappas), and in weather events. I used this when I do healing landscape work with other people. We then sing in an improvised way the mood of that moment and that place.

Some of these sound experiences I wrote down in compositions.

I wanted to investigate whether this could be made objective, and I worked this out as a method in Workshops ad later on courses. Namely learned the experience that sound, sung and/or with instruments, has a strong healing effect on man and nature. This is known from different shamanistic traditions from East and West. We can apply this when we only know how. And this is what I have done with my research and methods.


A Search for bigger connections

What I heard in the workings of the cloud, after ancient knowledge is called the Harmony of the Spheres. Which means the sound-force workings of the Sun, Moon and the planets in their pace at the sky. The last person of whom is known to hear this consciously was Pythagoras. With the help of his monochord he developed the musical system of the fifth’s circle. This is still the base for our western music, for each one of the twelve subsequent fifths is the start of a sharp scale. He himself in his school in Croton, South Italy, made an inner path of development out of this on the base of music and dance. And the first person as far as I know to hear this anew, was the composer Schönberg. Six years after the initiation in the sea of sound he developed his twelve-tone system, in which each tone within an octave has equal value: the atonal musical system. This however is not in accordance with what I heard: that was not atonal, but supra tonal. Which means the music I heard had a sense and direction. It was not a sound mash, which you can experience often (not always!) in atonal music.

In the 17th century Johan Kepler investigated as well the Harmony of the Spheres. In that search he found the elliptic orbits of the planets around the Sun in his so-called mathematic Law of Fields (actually these orbits are egg-shaped, but this so hard to express in math). When you transpose the movements in sound relations, you get harmonious intervals (like thirds, fourths, fifths) between the slowest en fastest movements, and as well between the planet movements with each other. I have transposed his reckonings of the planet movements and as well of their moons in sounds. And indeed I found beautiful harmonies, that remembers of the compositions of the planets by Holst. This I have worked out in a book, and you can order a CD of those planetary and moon movements.

This all was however a small part of the reflection of the sea of sound that I have heard inside the cloud. It namely failed the rhythm, and this is an expression of the life.

During my Biology studies I had often looked at dying tissue under my microscope, where you could just suspect activities of the life. Drawing these dying pictures was violent to my soul and told me little about the life. I went searching in other directions to find more about the Harmony of the Spheres. I red a lot of astrological books, that easily came to me. But in these I also encountered predominantly dead images, mighty as they were. I searched the life in it in vain. In science my observations are not recognized as such, for they are not accessible for everyone: you have to push yourself to open up your inner senses. I still remember the words of a dean that looked through some of my books. She then said “This is not the way we do it here. You better graduate in Philosophy, they might see a possibility for you.” Because at that time I had a family with still young children I did not have the strength to do it. I though did write down my visions and methods of research in the book ‘Science Otherwise’. In it I also give directions how you can practice the different branches of science out of your own organ/planetary processes.


Life is rhythm

What Kepler had discovered was very interesting. These however were the movements of the planets around the Sun, and we on the Earth as being one of those orbiting planets do not see these elliptic movements. But in their encircling of the Sun, the planets all dance in a very peculiar way around the Earth, enveloping us in loops. And in these there is rhythm, so life.Planeetbanen geocentrisch

E.g. Mercury ‘dances’ on average with three loops a year towards the Earth when he passes before the Sun. Imagining this from above our solar system, you will see a tulip or lilly shape. Venus envelops us five times within eight years with her dance, in which she passes through the Zodiac about eight times. Seen from above, there arises the beautiful muster of a rose. In his fifteen year cycle around the Earth through the Zodiac, Mars envelops us seven times with loops. Jupiter goes around the Zodiac in 12 years, and envelops us therein wit 11 loops. And Saturn goes around in the Zodiac in 29 ½ years, enveloping us 28 ½ times with loops. Thus has each planet its own rhythm towards the Earth, in his own pace. I tried out all these rhythms in workshops to experience how these rhythms work unto us. From esotery namely is known that we carry the planetary forces within our organs. According to this our lungs, brought forth by Mercury, should react to a ¾ measure, and the kidneys, stemming from Venus, in a 5/4 measure, and so on. This in my workshops appeared to be repeatable in the experience with different participants. On sequence:

Moon – brains and reproductive cells – 12/16 measure

Mercury – lungs – ¾ measure

Venus – kidneys – 5/4 measure

Sun – heart – 4/4 measure

Mars – gallbladder – 7/4 measure

Jupiter – liver – 11/4 measure

Saturn – spleen – 29/4 measure

Different folks like the Basks, Celts, Bulgarians, Fins know these uncommon measure types. They probably are handed down from Atlantis, where they were heard inwardly and not seen. For this continent was largely enveloped by fog.

These measures give a kind of limiting of the time flow, like a riverbed, they give a kind of hold, but are not yet life itself. These come to life when you lay different accents in them. Everyone who once has drummed knows the fixating effect when you keep on playing the same rhythm; this might bring you into a kind of trance. And that you make it vivid again when you change the rhythm. That arouses you.


Color is the soul to the outside, sound is the soul inward

When in the evening dusk you let work the colors in their changing hues upon you, you will come in different moods. Inwardly you can let this resound in tones. This is not astonishing, while the atmosphere is the soul of our Mother Earth (and it consists of 80 % of nitrogen, barer of the soul). You can experience the colors as feelings. To the inside you experience the colors as your feelings, that each have a certain sound. I have been able to elaborate this with students of he Collot painting academy. We sang the colors as moods, which helped them to better catch and paint the soul motions as different colors. I also use this as sound improvisations with healing landscape work, in which we sing the different colors for the elementary beings.

Now concerning the more conscious sound effects in the soul that can wake you up. As I pointed out before, you can deduct the twelve major scales from the Pythagorean circle of fifths. Each of these you can experience as specific soul-consciousness spaces, which each correspond to a sign of the Zodiac. Like a large matrix.

A more refined application of scales you will find with different composers that listen to the inside, such as Beethoven (at the end of his life when he was deaf and only heard from within himself) and Debussy (before he was whistled back by Jean Cocteau). With them in e few of their compositions you find the old scales from the Middle Ages, in which the monks then sang (the so-called Gregorian singing). Those church scales have been handed down from ancient Greece, where they were the initiation/temple music of the different tribes. Our sharp scale knows as a sequence the tones C-D-E-F-G-A-B-c. The Dorians knew in this the D as basic note, the Phrygians the E and so on. This tone sequence originates from the cosmic-earthly developmental octave. It starts with the G from the so-called ancient Saturn, in which the germ for the human physical body was initiated. That happened in the warmth. After this there came the development stage that is called the Old Sun, with the tone A. Here our life body was made up. This occurred in the light and the air. Next arose the Old Moon, the tone B, where we begot a soul body. That occurred in sounds in the water. Then came the physically condensed Earth with the tone C, on which we can incarnate physically. This is called the Mars development of the Earth. Around the year zero that development was finished, and we could absorb our spirit germ, that to which we say ‘I’. So from that time onwards we can follow an individual development and are no longer bound only to family and tribe. We can help to heal what we have done to others and to ourselves until the year zero. This is called the Mercury development of the Earth, ad it brings the tone D after the incarnating C. After this there come the Jupiter Earth, on which we fully can develop clairvoyance, the Angel consciousness. That is the tone E that is connected to Jupiter: the shamballa or new Jerusalem. Then will follow the Venus Earth, in which we learn to act and conduct in an inspirational way: the Archangel level. That is the tone F. And as last one the Vulcan Earth, in which we can become creative magicians, the Time Spirit level, and create new humans out of us. That is the octave tone G. And thus we have hidden in our bodies and soul the entire octave as developmental stages . It starts with G, as follows: G-A-B-c-d-e-f-g. This octave with diminished seventh tone (small seventh) is the Saturn or spleen scale. It is the so-called natural tone sequence, that is hidden in each earthly sound in the overtones.

In the following the church scales and the organs as soul moods are connected:

Moon/Life flows and conscious soul contend – B-b (lokrian)

Mercury/Lungs – D-d (dorian)

Venus/Kidneys – F – f (lydian)

Sun/Heart – A – a (aeolian; minor)

Mars/Gallbladder – C – c (ionian; major)

Jupiter/Liver – E – e (phrygian)

Saturn/spleen – G – g (myxolydian)

This all after the white keys of the piano (with fixed whole and half tone distances)

For the three newly discovered ‘mystery’ planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, which bring forth hormone glands and not inner organs, there are other scales. See to this my books ‘Karmic Astrosophy’ and ‘Working with the Rhythms and Harmonies of the Planetary Spheres’ (not yet translated), in which you will find as well songs and other compositions of the planetary rhythms.

Still my search was not yet satisfied. Even though I could condense harmonies into compositions, I still looked for sounds I had heard and that I could not find back with our common musical instruments. In particular where it deals with word sounds. For instance a flute has more an ‘O’ sound, a hobo more ‘A’, but you do not come much further.

Soundsculpture OakI started to develop sound sculptures that each produced a specific vowel sound through their type of wood and inner space. I adapted this to a lyre and a violoncello with movable back parts, to be able to approach these vowel sounds in music.

Klinker cello schuin achterAfter this I made musical instruments, initially harps and lyres, to make the specific sound spaces of the Zodiacal images audible. I accomplished this by applying the forms of the star constellations as sound formatting principles. Thus arose twelve archetypes of string instruments, that each produces their own specific sound. Afterwards I applied this to larger lyres and as well on guitars and violins.

I did this as well because I could well play the guitar and keyboard, but kept on repeating the same improvisations in different scales. This brought me in the thinking mode and excarnated a little when I just improvised. But with the musical dressing in measure and rhythm and besides the tonalities, this became ever more directed sound meditation. Thus I came through the musical determinations to compositions on the base of the planetary sounds and rhythms.

alle instrumenten - 1

This neither was the totality of what I was looking for. I was able though to have resound the planet/organ music of a specific moment. This I applied in schooling and therapy out of the birth horoscope and in landscape healing. But I still did not have an entrance to the workings of the stars. Even though I could hear these when there was silence within and around me. I know there are some people nowadays that hear tones when certain stars rise above the horizon. Hence I transposed the distance of the stars to the Zodiac in tones. By projecting their place perpendicular to the Zodiac (through which the Sun, Moon and planets move) I determined as well their rhythm because of the planetary pace. When the stars in a constellation are being grouped together in this way, you get very specific sounds and rhythms. These we all know, for in between to lifes on Earth, ad as well each night when we sleep, we are in these starry worlds. See to this also my first blog about the impact of the star constellations upon us. With these sounds and rhythms you come to your own ideals which you took along before birth to work out in this lifetime. So you meet in this your own developmental being, your inner child that wants to grow by developing inwardly.


Sound horoscopes

All the musical workings mentioned above I applied to a horoscope, out of the knowledge acquired in astrology and astrosophy (I give more than 35 years horoscope explanations and consultations). When applying the insights of the four human bodies to a horoscope, you can recognize the following elements in relation to the bodies:

-The physical body is being conducted by the inner organs, which are the planet workings taken within. The organs embed the soul and the life processes according to the type of measure that is deducted from the rhythmical planetary dance around the Earth. See above.

-The life body expresses itself in rhythms, which are enveloped in the organ measure. In poetry we know the metres, the rhythmical unities. These have been applied in a conscious way in the row-dances within the ancient Greek apollonic temple plays. These row-dances between the scenes of the drama were executed by the pupils on the base of rhythmical texts. And these have been descended to us as the metres upon which the literary texts have been and sometimes are still written (as by me). These metres bring life. Well considered there are twelve types, and each one of these bring you in contact with a certain life realm. In the horoscope the twelve houses indicate our life realms, in which lay hidden our will. The metres bring to life the measure types of the organs, and thus you get a conscious access to what lives in your will as willing impulses.

-The soul consists of the feelings of sym- and antipathy and their refinements. To the outside the feelings are colors, to the inside sounds, and thus you can experience the soul moods that arise from the organs as scales, inner sound spaces.

-The spirit brings about in the soul that we can make and recognize significant musical motives. These musical motives or musical phrases dress up in measure, rhythm and tonality, but in itself render something peculiar. This makes you distinguish musical pieces from each other. But still one step further: the real spiritual background of a musical piece forms its tonality, so the major scale in which it is written. This as well determines its orientation towards the Zodiac.

Now when a planet in a birth horoscope stands in a specific sign, the planet transforms the major scale of that zodiacal sign into its own church scale. From itself it brings along the specific measure type within the organ that he brought forth. The house in which the planet stands indicates the life realm in which he will work out. And its rhythm deforms the measure type of that planet.

And thus you have an approach of the harmony of the spheres until within your own constitution.

When for example Mercury stands in Scorpio, he will change the Des major scale of Scorpio into the Dorian one, which means that not Des but Es is its asic tone. His measure type, anchored in the lungs, is the 3/4th. If standing in the 11th house (about 11 A.M., coffee time), his metre is creticus, long-short-long. And with this, he will inwardly transform and bring to life the ¾ measure. Click here for a few musical examples.


How far from my bed?

I did not work this out just as a theory. Over 30 years I tested this in workshops, education in inner development and in personal consultations and therapies. We also apply this during landscape healings. Here I let the participants sing the mood of a moment in an improvised way. Meanwhile I play on the lyre the planet positions in measure, rhythm and melody. The recognition in all these cases is evident to myself and to the participants. We namely experience constantly the effects of the harmony of the spheres as the moods and their changes that we go through each day. Even though most often we are little to not aware of this. This work is a path of exercising to become more aware of those inner sounds. Like this you draw the harmony of the spheres closer again by recognizing these moods.

My wife Marion Groenendal gives music therapy to multiple handicapped people, with as a result that they come more in themselves and become the age that they really are, no longer a three years old child. Their surroundings are glad about this.

Are you interested to experience this for yourself? We give evenings of improvisations in these musical spheres. Or come and follow an education ‘Music of the organs out of the Horoscope’. Here you learn to get along with this method, if only for your own sake to get to know your own soul processes. We give this education on your command.

2. Organs as inner planetary system

An astrosophical view

‘How are you?’ is a common question.

You will look weird when asked ‘How are your organs?’ And probably even stranger with ‘How is your inner planetary system?’ Your first thought might be ‘This guy is nuts’.

Yet out language is full of expressions in which the organs are being called. ‘What ‘s on your liver’, when you are bitter. ‘You carry the hearth on the tongue’ when you are direct and speak out your feelings and judgments. ‘It lays heavy on the stomach’ when you have something hard to digest. ‘I stirred up his bile’ and ‘I vent my gall’ if something or someone bothers you and you need to make space for yourself. ‘I get oppressed by it’ when your own space is taken in. Here speak out the lungs. ‘I am all ear’ when you offer someone room to express himself. I this the kidneys show, that in their cleansing work of the body juices make a clean inner environment, a chalice in which you can be attentive for what plays within you and in other people. ‘I get a stich in my side when I think of it’ when you are troubled in your acts by something. Thus expresses the spleen.

All these examples, there are plenty, indicate that your organs directly influence your moods and as well your acts. ‘It’s all between your ears’ say the neurologist and shrink. Yea right, that ‘s where you become conscious in your brains of what is going on in your organs. Because we are not directly conscious of the processes in the organs. We did learn to observe the world around us, but looking and specifically listening to the inside is not the strongest side of our culture.

Our observations, to the outside as well as to the inside, start with the senses, with which we perceive impressions. And with this it’s not only about the five known senses of seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and the tactile one. There are more, like whether you feel good or not (the life sense), and whether you feel the balance.

As an investigation to the inside you can question yourself with an event, neeting or problem the following:

-how and where does it enter in you?

-what do you feel with it?

-in what mood does that feeling bring you? Can you experience this as an inner space? And when yes, how does it look like?

-what does it want from you?

-what ideal is awoken in you?

-and how would you react out of it?

Thus you can enter yourself all through your senses and can observe. This usually goes very fast, so I advice to reflect on these steps in rest. And it is even better to model these out in clay. Then you get a clear picture of your inner world. With this as well starts my education in Inner Development.

But in this way you cab come to inner research. For by acknowledging your feelings, you bring your consciousness to the heart, where the feelings sparkle. The head only observes. And in experiencing your moods as inner spaces, you as well bring consciousness to your lungs, that have to do with your space experience, within as well as around you: we breathe in the air that fills the space. And through the different space experiences that your moods bring forth, you gradually get a feeling for the inner qualities that your organs bring along.


Organs and your soul mood

In the following manner the organs can determine your soul mood and consciousness:

-The heart gives rise to your feelings, and it makes perceive yourself as a center, out of the warmth. If you feel being treated with injustice, the heart can sparkle in rage. The inwardly experienced heart space is a center that corresponds to static or dynamic surroundings.

ORGALL-The lungs determine your connection to and place in space. Through breathing they give you the connection of sense impressions and thoughts mainly coming from the head to life (oxygen), and thus as well to the forming of associative thinking. As space determination in social life they hold sadness, and can strongly have you experienced loneliness. The inwardly experienced lung space is dependent on your emotional base about your place in the world. And as this is more or less pleasant, you see the walls of it wide and transparent or rather tightening.

-The kidneys separate waste and astral substances (Nitrogen in broken down proteins). This is the base for your consciousness, that lives in the astral or soul body. This body consists of feelings, and hence the kidneys bring you the feelings and emotional connections. In a negative sense as well the basic fears, be cause the kidneys carry and take care of our body water. And in it work our predecessors, with their traumas and undissolved problems. The inwardly experienced kidney space is special and colorful, without a center but carrying like a chalice.

-The liver is our chemical factory, where the proteins are synthesized on the base of sound musters, or the dance of the substances. Besides this it makes the sugars and fats as fuels. Hence our faculty to grow, and as well to act inspired on the flow of life. When hemmed in your life expressions, there arises bitterness and rage. As an inner space out of your soul moods you can experience the liver as a moving ongoing space, like a riverbed that can reverse.

-The spleen organizes in us the making and breaking of blood. With the making of the blood inside our bone marrow the ideals are being elaborated in it. These come from the star constellations (see to this my first blog). So this spleen process carries our karma, our earthly fate upon which base we can develop. When you want to describe the mood of the spleen, this has to do with slowing down or being hemmed, with interiorizing and deeply contemplative fathoming, intuition, plight, and as well acting out of this. When you feel you did not handle well, remorse can arise from this by the self-imposed feelings of guilt. Inwardly you can experience the spleen space like a tunnel that forms in the deep.

-The gall bladder brings forth the propelling force in our blood. In the liver, in which it is embedded, this propelling force from the heartbeat comes in thin veins, which in hemming give rise to sound musters, on which base the proteins are being formed from amino acids that come from the guts. The gall bladder has to do with our forcer to do and undertake things. It has as well the possibility to create space for yourself and your initiatives, or space when others do not leave you this. When it’s hard for you to express your will, this can give rise to temper. Inwardy you can experience the gallbladder space out of its provoked mood as a dynamically created space in which things can develop.

-The stomach helps us to predigest out food, and besides this carries as well undigested experiences, which strongly influence your well or wrong feeling. As a soul space it gives you the experience of a turbulent inside lake that is enclosed by its walls.

-Your guts and the pancreas that is closely related to these specifically have influence on your capability to express your will ad therewith transform yourself and the Earth. They hardly come to the consciousness. There is the expression ‘Who has the guts to do that?’. This indicates courage, so a quality of the will, that comes from the guts. Qi Kung from China knows the connection between the small intestine and the lungs, and the large to the heart. So becoming conscious the guts goes through the organs mentioned. You become conscious of the pancreas through the stomach and spleen, and not so much by itself. It is our overall earth-organ, that makes the digestive juices, indispensible for our digestion.

So here you have some indications about the perception of the organs as soul moods.


Organs as inner planetary system

Now about the question how this forms an inner planetary system.

Before birth you came from your own star, entered the zodiac and condensed yourself ever more within our planetary system. Your thereby pulled ever denser bodies around your essential kernel, and these bodies each have been stilled in you as an organ process, of which the organ in concern is its precipitation.

-Within Saturn’s sphere you take on a warmth coat, through which you can apply your will on the Earth, for without warmth no deed can be done. Think of ‘dead’ fingers in winter. This finds its end in the spleen process. It mediates the processing and breaking down of the blood, ad in your blood lay stored the willing impulses – which is commonly being called your karma..

-Within Jupiter’s sphere you also get a life body, which makes that om the Earth you are not a stiff piece of wood, but can grow as well by your life processes. In our body the life processes are enabled by the liver proces, for in this the basic proteins of the body are being processed on the base of the sounds and rhythms that play in it. So the liver is our inner Jupiter organ.

-Within Mars’ sphere we also become a cloak of soul substance, an astral body, or a soul. Therewith we can connect us to other people and as well generate feelings. We can develop the soul when at each time we get new impulses and perceive things that get us in motion. This is being propelled by planet Mars through our gallbladder process: the force to come in motion and bring forth our willing impulses.

-Within the Sun’s sphere we come together with the groups of kindred people with whom we share karma and want to develop further. We work here unto one another with and out of the astral body, so that on the Earth we can recognize our traits with one another. When finished with this, we pull ourselves together around our basic pulsing rhythm of what later on while incarnated on the Earth will be our heart beat. Thus we separate from from our companions and continue our journey to the Earth. So in your heart you carry along all your companions, and besides this, your spirit germ, your ego, is centered in the heart.

-Within Venus’ sphere you work on the individualizing of your own soul, so that it later on the Earth expresses your personality. That soul or astral body is carried and kept clean by your kidneys. Your solar plexus chakra conducts your being on an astral level.

-Within Mercury’s sphere your life body is being personified and connected to the groups of people where you will connect to in life. These carry specific notions and thoughts, which are being worked as well into your life body. On the base of these life flows you can think later on. Also because with the lungs (Mercury’s organ) by the absorption of Oxygen you bring life to yourself and to your thoughts. Your life body consists of currents, rhythms and gestures. T he Chinese call these the meridian orbits, that go out from your second, navel chakra.

-Within the Moon’s sphere together with your guardian angel you look for the most suited couple of parents for you, which enables you with your possibilities and hang-ups you can best work out your fate and thus develop. Like this the Moon has to do with your basic life processes and your hereditary determined physical body. Most known of this is the menstruation cycle of the women, but each human knows the changes in mood all through the month, that are being influenced strongly by the movement of the Moon all through the Zodiac. You become conscious of your soul and life processes in your brains, which thus are the end of the workings of the Moon.

Organen en planeten - 1Thus you can get a notion for the coherence of the organs with the different planets. But this still is mere thought, and not experience. Over the possibilities to experience this I bothered many years. For if that succeeds you can make their inner workings more conscious, and thus get to know yourself better, with the possibility to conduct yourself.

After I first started to look at the motions of the planets towards the Earth and understand these, I could come closer to this. You can get to this as follows. All the planets turn around the Sun in egg-shaped orbits. Our Earth as well, and we are the third in the row. We on the Earth experience that the Sun turns around us, as well in an elliptic, egg-shapes orbit. And hence the planets around this make rhythmical dances to the Earth, enveloping us in loops. Each planet does this in its own, specific way, with its own pace all through the Zodiac and its specific amount of loops. So they make a basic measure-rhythm towards the Earth. Now if you start to experience these basic measure rhtyhms, you will notice that these bring you in specific moods, that attune to the organs that have been brought forth by the planets. I had experienced this in workshops and educations for years, with repetitive experiences. In this manner I worked this out in my compositions. So these rhythms give you a basic experience of the different organs.

In old folk music of different kind you can encounter these often unusual measure types. Separately from each other the Celts (Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Bretagne), the Basks and the Hungarians know the 5/4, 7/4, 11/4 and even 13/4 measures in their music. Also the Turkish music from around the Dardanells. That is probably an echo of the temple music from Atlantis. That continent did not or hardly see the Sun, Moon and the planets because it was almost always foggy. There the people resonated inwardly with the planets. And still now you can experience in the folk music of those cultures how vivid is in its unusual measure types. We are awoken by these.


Chakras and planets

Now the planets do more than merely bring about the organs in us, for we have as well the germs in us to from our basic constitution develop us further on. These are our higher soul senses we call chakras or lotus flowers. ‘Chakra’ is the Indian word for wheel. These organs namely start to turn as soon as you start to develop them. Therewith has each chakra a specific amount of ‘petals’ when you start to develop these. So their development looks like a flower, a lotus flower. Hence the other name.

Between our life body with its life and water currents, rhythms and gestures (of the proteins) at the one side and our astral body at the other, develop higher soul senses, our chakras. We have seven ‘til eight large and about 20 smaller ones of these. We develop the petals of the chakras by making conscious (astral body) gestures (life body) to make effective our willing intensions and ideals in our lives. That means we develop good habits, or virtues. The larger chakras and their workings are:

-The forehead chakra is connected to the hypophysis and was our ‘third eye’ of old, our clairvoyancy. For most people it is closed nowadays, and now we can bundle our thoughts by it, and organize and direct these, by the ‘brain sand’ that is being formed in the hypophysis. When we start to see overall connections, the workings of archetypes, and as well the beings that represent these, we again become clairvoyant. Note: we already speak of the time spirit, but observing it all through the phenomena is already a step in the direction of clairvoyancy. It is similar for the beings behind the phenomena of nature. This chakra has to do with Jupiter, who through the liver helps to synthesize our thoughts with the life. If we become clairvoyant, the influence of Uranus comes through more strongly.

-The throat chakra has to do with giving shape, as of our thoughts in words in our larynx. The thyroid gland before this regulates the calcium absorption and decalcification of the bones, and so it has to do a lot with form. The chakra also concerns the formation of decisions, and the consequent execution of these. You develop this chakra through making your own the qualities of Buddha’s eight-folded path. It has to do with Mars and the gallbladder process, wherewith you make space for what lives within you. The throat chakra gives the possibility to organize your own life space.

-The heart chakra observes what occurs at the three nerve centers of the heart. At the upper one is observed what comes in from the thinking and the world outside, and probed at the feeling for truth. From the lowest nerve center it observes the willing impuses that are being aroused by a sense impression or event from the outside, and probed at the good. And in the middle nerve center is being weighed with the conscience what needs to happen with the impulse and its inner reaction. Hence this chakra has to do with the faculty to weigh and conduct inspired the actions at each moment. Just like the Sun balances and conducts the planets. When we refine and elaborate this chakra, the influence of Neptune becomes stronger, who usually seizes at the epiphysis.

-The thymus chakra regulates the rhythms of the organs to one another. When you start to develop it and thus enlarge your consciousness, this has to do with carrying out your soul plights (Indian: dharma) through which you can better elaborate and transform your karma with other people. This refinement of the inner and outer flows causes that you start to develop your ether heart, at the left side of your chest vault. This is the future organ for your inner growth. The chakra as healing and growth capacity has a strong connection to the planet Mercury.

-The Solar Plexus chakra carries your astral body, as do your kidneys, and out of your solar plexus nerve center it conducts your digestive processes though the vegetative nerve system. With this caretaking side it shows its coherence with the kidneys and therefor with Venus. When you start to handle the workings of the solar plexus consciously, you can learn to conduct in the astral worlds with and through the feeling, on the base of the colorful light rays of the astral world.

Mens en etherwereld-The navel chakra, just beneath the navel, carries and conducts your lif body with its processes. From here flow the life orbits called meridians by the Chinese that maintain and conduct the life. If you start to make its processes conscious, you need to investigate your habits of thinking, emotional attitudes and acting and trace how much these are liberated from the judgments and morals of your youth and surroundings. You should make these more flexible and learn to handle them. Then you can, all through your solar plexus chakra, start to observe and conduct in the life worlds, and help to develop the good in it. Then Pluto starts to cooperate stronger herein. He usually seizes at the suprarenal gland. The navel chakra as a carrier and keeper of life coheres with Mercury, within whose sphere our life body was individualized.

-The tailbone chakra receives and bundles the four life flows that we get from the Earth (known in Star Wars as ‘The Force’). Thus our conection to the Earth is brought forth, feeding both our physical and our life bodies. That shows the coherence with the Moon. When we start to handle this chakra in a conscious way, we can learn to awaken the ‘sleeping snake’ (Indian: kundalini) and to erect it along our spinal chord. Then we open our crown lotus, and become a clairvoyant magician in the higher worlds. We then become the ‘winged serpent’ (Aztec: Quetzalqoatl), and every American Indian chief indicates he has done this by his feather crown hanging down the spine. However, just like the esculap of Hermes, the kundalini snake consists of here interweaving snakes: the white one of egoism/greed and the black one of Greed/power are kept in balance by the pink one in the middle, keeping that balance by erecting. So that is a strong image for the development you need to go by erecting the kundalini snake. You then bring the Moon (tailbone) in a direct contact with Saturn (the crown) and become a ‘Snake Carrier’ r Snake Tamer’. And that is the last northern star constellation of the Circle of Heroes, the goal of human development. This constellation forms the thirteenth zodiacal constellation. It presses the Scorpion downwards and indicates that herewith an new Zodiac can be developed by future man.

A comforting image, isn’t it?

1. Stars – the Path to our Origin


Contours of Star Consciousness in Antiquity

The scientific research into cultures of old shows ever more clear that the connection to the starry world was much deeper and expanded as nowadays. The megalithic constructions such as Stonehenge in the southwest of England and Newgrange in Ireland are oriented to the solstices and as well to the overall starry sky. The placing of the recently discovered giant piramides in Bosnia is exactly oriented to the cosmic North Pole at the sky. The distribution of dolmen and ancient sanctuaries shows an exact reflection of the form of the star constellations at the sky above them. Thus is the placing of the piramides in Egypt a reflection of the northern constellation Swan or Northern Cross. Just like the ancient sanctuaries in the Scottish Highlands. A 16 year old boy indicated recently that a few cities in the area of the Mayas were missing, and as well where they could be found. This according to the starry sky above Mexico, because the Mayas had a strong connection to that sky. Upon this the remnants of these cities were found in the jungle. In Ireland have been built towers in the 6th century by the Celtic-christian monks that show a distribution over the island in the shape of the constellations Draco and the Big and Small Dipper together. This is just a handful of examples from the many facts that come up about the connections of old with the starry sky.

My own research on dolmen gave the observation that in each one there is a human who has sacrificed him/herself by being locked up alive in them voluntarily. Hence this person remained connected to that place on Earth, and became the guardian and consciousness of that dolmen. And at the same time he or she represents the consciousness of a star within the star constellation of which that dolmen is part of on the Earth, by his placement in relation to other dolmen. They like to share their wisdom with the visitor.

My research in the sounds and rhythms of the planets in their relation to our inner organs brought me to the initial music from Atlantis. And when you read messages about that old continent, you often come across that the Sun, Moon and the planets were not or hardly to be seen, while there was always fog. The Atlantians have perceived the workings of the heavenly bodies inwardly, and with their music and dance they builded up their organs. The people that left Atlantis as last, like the Celts, Basks and Fins, have taken along that music. You find this back in their cult music, which now passes as folk music. Only the ancient Persians and Egyptians could make an exterior connection to the stars and planets. And from here arose the research for the workings of the planets and stars as we know from astrology. The Egyptian Ptolemeus has written down this old astrology in his book Almagest.

Apparently our ancestors found the connection to the starry sky important enough to organize their cult and culture with it.

Situation now

We live in a time in which reality is mostly considered from a physical perspective. With as a result that we start to understand the laws and workings in nature, and apply these as well in all kinds of practical techniques. That gives ease and prosperity, besides quite some pollution. Through this there is a tendency to explain everything with and from the physical and physiological phenomena. ‘It ‘s all between your ears’ is a clincher you often hear. Science will soon find a solution. Things that cannot be explained, are being finished with superstition of our ancestors. For diseases are being developed medicines, that often more fight the symptoms than that they dissolve the cause, but that appear to work for some time. And when we look up to the starry world, we get to hear that even the closest star is lightyears away from us. The more we reflect on the stars and project our earthly laws unto them, the further they seem to be away from us. Besides, we are being screened off from them by the scattered light at night, especially near roads and large cities. And because of the many satellites around the Earth that all radiate in electromagnetic waves. Not to speak of the techniques of geo engineering, better known as chemtrails, that pull a veil of poison and metals through our atmosphere, and the directed radiation that is unleashed therewith upon man and tries to influence our consciousness. Think for instance of the Iraqi soldiers during the first Gulf war that surrendered in fear, because there were being projected images onto them of what should be done to them if they would not surrender. Music has lost its connection to the cosmos, what you can see in the reduction of the basic measure types and rhythms at the one side, and the tonalities at the other.

It is not made easy for us to attune to the workings of the stars and planets.

Awakening people

It is however as well a time where ever more people are waking up for the limits of mere materialistic thinking. Because the symptom fight of diseases with chemically developed medicines appear not to be sufficient, or sometimes even counterproductive. And because we gradually become awake again for the realms behind the mere physical observable world of shapes and phenomena. Our senses that were directed towards the physical observable reality, again receive perceptions of what lies hidden behind the physical veils. Like our early ancestor did. That gives a whole range of searches to the inner man and his possibilities, and also to the spiritual realities behind the physical observable world. From East and West the wisdoms and techniques are carried unto you to work on yourself. The ancient initiation paths of our ancestors, the Celts and Germans, are being taken up. Concerning the workings of the stars and planets, we can dig from the astrological traditions of the American Indians, Hindus, Chinese and the one that developed in our culture. But these predominantly do not reach further than considerations about the zodiac and the effects of the Sun, Moon and planets in it. Very taking and apprehensive, but these do not bring you closer to the perception of their workings which you only can find back in you by doing in them.

Angels and stars

And what is perceived all through the veils of the physical phenomena? Since these perceptions are not as clear as those from the physical senses, you get here very diverse observations and interpretations. The one sees elfins, goblets or Angels, the other UFO’s and aliens, and claims to be included in space ships above the Earth or even further. It may be obvious that the interpretation plays an important role in this. Detached even from the possible truth it may reflect.

One thing became more conscious to me. That is beautifully narrated in the first encounter that the Spanish colonist Cortez and his people had with the residents of a Caribbean island. Their ship could not reach the beach, and let go the anchor at the mouth of a bay. From here they came with a sloop ashore. The natives greeted them and showered them with gifts. They communicated with hands and feet. At one moment they asked Cortez how he had reached them. He pointed at his boat in the bay and said ‘ship’. The natives looked and looked, but saw nothing that struck to them. Hereupon the shaman sailed with the sloop and entered the sailing ship. He tapped and sanctified all he saw. Then he returned ashore, pointed at the sailing ship to his people and said in his language ‘ship’. Thus these people from then on know where and how they should look.

Now this is still about a phenomenon in the physical world that was not observed, because these people had no reference to it. How much thinner is an observation on the higher levels of the life forces, of the soul and of the spirit. Or rather different dimensions outside the three dimensional one in which we usually are awake. And there you see the explanations and designations strongly divert. If we perceive something from those regions, we try to explain it from what we already know. And that is often based upon an experience that has been gathered in the physical world. In short: to interpret observations behind the veils of the physical world, you could gradually become conscious and also interpret from what is already known from these realms, told or written down by people who have gone before, and relate to their experiences. I will do this in relation to the planets and stars. From my own experiences, supplemented with knowledge from different esoteric directions, specifically from Europe.

You can imagine that God, the Primal Source or whatever you might call this being, has created the Cosmos, the Earth and ultimately man as well. He did not do this on His own, for He had helpers to this. Each time the Universe became differentiated and formed a little further. In the Beginning He created a group of beings that carried and elaborated for Him the archetypes. And these beings again created lower ones that caused a further refinement and differentiation. These creatures are being called differently in each culture, some even by name. Like the gods, archetypal forces, emanations. Our western-christian culture knows them as the Angel groups, that are being ordered hierarchically after their consciousness. So there are within our Cosmos nine groups of angelic beings, that each created its own starry and planetary sphere, which they as well inhabit. In the stars live the Seraphim or Love Spirits; in the Zodiac dwell the Cherubim or Harmony Spirits. And thus the lower groups each inhabit a sphere, from Saturn until the Moon, and they all work towards the Earth. Since our Cosmos is created in four stages, in such a way that our four bodies could be developed, there are as well four elements on the Earth that stand behind these four bodies, in the following way: element earth – carries our physical body; element water – carries our life body with its physiological processes; element air – carries our soul which with the colors can express the feelings; and element fire – carries our spirit that lives in the warmth of our will. Because they thought, these angelic groups have created the Elemental Beings who direct and maintain these four elements. We take along this planetary system, and from this we form our organs. The starry forces we take along as our ideals, which penetrate our physical body as warmth crystals. This you can grasp as follows.

In between two incarnations on the Earth you can go to your own star. That is your home, and you are the representative of that star on Earth. You can stay there, but there is being held a promise before you, in the shape of a mighty image of what you might become when you descent to the Earth and work on your imperfections. We are destined to become Angels as well, being one of freedom and love. If you decide to this, you leave your own star and at first pass by different colonies of Angels and not-incarnated people under the guidance of Seraphim, who all work on a specific idea of the Divine plan for creation. You can cooperate in this for a while, and thus take it along. You continue your path, and after having visited more of these colonies you enter our Zodiac. Here within the different planetary spheres each time you dress in another ‘cloak’ (body) around your spirit germ. Together with your guardian Angel you choose a parent couple that help to give birth to you. On the Earth you can see those groups of Angels and men working on a specific theme of the Divine plan as the star constellations. The ideas or rather forces of the constellations you bring down as the warmth crystals around and all through your physical body. These form your ideals, for you know deep down that when you realize them, you help with the realization of the Divine plan of creation all through you, so that you can grow as well to become the Angel that was held promise to you.

Concerning the so-called extraterrestrials: First, there are already 127 patents issued in designing flying saucers. These are most often used by our governments and armies, but these are not released for the public. So many of the UFO observations can be traced to earth ships. Second, with the further development of the Divine plan every time there have been created angelic groups. But not every Angel was willing to cooperate on this plan, because he did not feel the freedom in it. Hence he could start to oppose. Thus it became a counter-striving angel, and each angelic group has its counter-group. They all got an own sphere to dwell in the Earth. And thus there are nine counter-spheres in the Earth, until its kernel. These are the beings that we can get to know as the counter forces within ourselves, our life and in society, of which they are the inspirators. That which we use to call ‘evil’. But behold: without the snake seducing Eve to eat as well from the Tree of Knowledge, we would still hang around dreaming in Paradise.

So they do have a function, namely making us conscious and strong by transforming the blockages they offer us. And therewith them as well. Some of those opposing Angels have also taken this physical incarnation path. And we now know different groups of these as the alien races, who are indeed physically present (or can manifest on this level). And honestly speaking, they are also trapped in this physical body and want to get out, or want to ascend together with mankind. The one race is more prepared to this than the other. And some tell us strange deviating stories as if they should be gods that have juggled with our DNA and made us from apes into man. You have to be very careful with such stories.

It is known from different races that they originate a specific star. There you recognize again the connection to the starry worlds. To be clear about this: we are all star children, each one of us originates from his own star, of which we are a representative. Our four bodies, based in the four elements, actually form our ‘space suit’ so that we can function on the Earth and develop, causing we ultimately can return to our own star as an Angel being. The question is ‘how’.

New ways

That question has puzzled me my entire adult life. And not in the least because I had e few spiritual experiences that did not lie. In natural phenomena, at certain places, but also in relation to the stars. This has put me to work and find new ways to the planets and stars, all through us, so that you can trace these paths consciously and afterwards form them in yourself and go.

My experiences of hearing music at different places, in weather changes and also in spaces has stimulated me to transpose the movements of the planets at the sky in measure type, rhythm and sounds. This I tested within workshops, making it possible to fine tune. I learned how you could experience these planet workings transposed into music in the organs. Thus I could observe and investigate the moods out of the organs in the soul. I applied this to birth horoscopes. Meanwhile my wife and I give strong healings by playing birth horoscopes in sound and rhythm to other people. This goes together with other healing methods, such as improvised common singing, Reiki, Healing Tao, Quantum Touch or just praying. We do it often within a group of people, our so-called ‘healing circles’. This gives a reset until in the cells and DNA, for those sounds give a sound picture of your overall life tableau of inner forces to which you have said ‘yes’ at your birth, and with which you have built up yourself. You can recognize soul patterns in it, and when needed, transform these in more healing behaviors. So here you come to practical applications in daily life, that can help you progress inwardly as well.

In order to work with the star constellations I transposed their place at the sky into sound and rhythm. Thus arise specific sound patterns, melodies, that are recognizable for whoever wants. For we experience these patterns when a planet, Sun or Moon in the Zodiac moves parallel with the constellation in concern. A series of specific assignments to model out in clay helps you to come closer to the star constellation-ideal in concern, and this gives you tools to realize it easier in your life. All through the resistances of the realization you namely develop the petals of your chakra’s, and thus you refine your soul and spirit. If afterwards you sing with an open soul in the night to one of the star constellations, it may open up to you. Through this you might see and hear the active Angels and not-incarnated humans in it. Then the stars appear to stand much closer, while you connect yourself to them all through the feeling.

A Search in Astrosophy

This all was preceded by a long journey for me where I at first fathomed the roads at the starry sky in coherence with our own development. Next I wanted to understand the star constellations by making sculptures of them out of their sound patterns, which make their inner gestures. And I worked with groups of people in the inner search and realization of this, so that ever more objective workings showed up.

In the end I attuned my training methods on how each person individually out of his own birth choices can connect all through the organs with the star constellations as his or her specific ideals. In such a manner that you can grow inwardly on them and give them a better shape in society all through your life. See to this my book ‘Gestures of the Star Constellations as Ideals’, accompanied with videos of the constellations with introductions and as well gestures for each constellation on the base of its music (all still in translation). The music is available on CD. See as well my sculptures, jewelry and musical instruments from the star constellations.

Far from my bed? I don’t think so.


When you thus restore a more intimate connection to the starry worlds, you can recognize as well where in our society and culture is missing the true connection to the spirit and cosmos. And you can help to restore this. You remind your own origine and strengthen your connection to it, which makes you vaster in doing your work on the Earth. By working on these connections with more people, there again will be made more gates to the spirit out of the Earth, also through the screens of obstructions. Besides this you transform yourself through striving in the direction of your own development to not merely a human, but an Angel in progress. And already through this you make the world a lot more beautiful.

Amongst others, I myself use this work with the stars in landscape healing, in which, together with my groups, I help to restore the nature spirits in the elements and the landscape Angels in their functioning, at sites where the energetic relations are being disturbed by us. In this way I learn to cooperate with them, for from now on we have to manage the Earth together. But this is just one of the elaborations.


In the following blogs I want to elaborate the parts of this overall star project. Interested? You can subscribe to my blog.
