“Thank you for a wonderful day.” 

– Deva Emanuel, musician and participant during Giten’s birthday. 

 Giten’s birthday on May 15, 2016, was celebrated with satsang, initiation and introduction to working with people from love, truth and silence. 

Marie, psychotherapist, who has done satsang and courses with Giten since 25 years, was initiated and was born again as Prem Samarpan, which Giten gave the spiritual meaning: Prem, love, and Samarpan, surrender, to let go. Giten described the spiritual meaning of Samarpans name: “Love is to surrender yourself. Love is to surrender yourself to the other person, love is to surrender to the whole.” 

Iiris, special teacher for autistic children, was also initiated and was born again as Prem Iiris, which Giten gave the spiritual meaning Prem, love, and Iiris, wholeness. Giten described the spiritual meaning of her new name: “Love creates healing and wholeness. Then you are not separated from the world. Then you are not a foreigner in the world. Then existence is your home.”

“It is astonishing to realize that growing up actually means to become one with Existence. It means to find the whole Existence within myself, it means to discover that Existence is alive in my own heart and being.

The song of a bird echoes my own inner voice, the beauty of a flower reflects my own inner beauty, a dog becomes an expression of my own unconditional love and friendship, the majestic mountains create an exstatic joy, and I discover all the shining stars of the sky within my own heart.
It is to realize that the whole Existence is alive, and that the underlying thread of consciousness is God.” 
― Swami Dhyan Giten
Inituation, Toshen
“I could not have wished for a more beautiful initiation.
I felt such a love for everybody after the initiation.” 
– Prem Mukta, who was initiated by Giten on June, 12, 2014
Initiering, Lotta + Giten
Initiation into freedom is basically a way of living life
consciously, in meditation and celebration, a life lived in oneness with Existence, inspired by the vision of spiritual teacher Swami Dhyan Giten.
Initiation into Freedom is an experience of the heart. It is an initiation into the ancient path of truth, an initiation into the invisible path.
Initiation + Kalyani + Giten
Initiation into Freedom is a sincere commitment to yourself and to your own spiritual growth. It is a statement that the most important thing in your life is meditation, to become more aware, more conscious and more awake. Initiation into Freedom is a surrender to the truth of your own being.
Initiation, bara Kalyani
Initiation into Freedom happens inside the being of the individual. It is conscious choice of the sincere seeker of love and truth, who have a deep commitment to truth. Previous experience of meditation is recommended.
Initiation med Lotta, bara Lotta
Giten has initiated people to the path of truth with people who surrendered to him in their hearts through creating an inner initiation in their inner being for 30 years, but he has not formally initiated people before. But now the time seems ripe to begin to initiate sincere seekers of truth.
Initiation into freedom is not a religion or an organization, it is a statement by the individual. Initiation into freedom is based on the Indian sannyasin tradition, but it is not a reunciation from the world. It is a life affirmative confirmation that embraces all aspects of life, meditation, relationships and creativity.
Initiation ceremonies will be performed in connection to Satsang evenings with Giten. Initiation can also be done by mail.
In initiation into freedom, Giten will observe you and find out:
1. What type you are
2. How much work you have done in your past lives
3. Where you are right at this moment in your spiritual growth
4. At what center you are functioning right now
5. Decision about meditative methods that will be helpful for you.
Based on this observation, Giten will give you a new name, your spiritual name, with a meaning that will denote the pathway that you will travel on and an individual quality that will be be a guidance on your spiritual path. You will also receive a necklace symbolizing the oneness of life.

Satsang with Giten on Buddha: Bhumis – Ten Steps to Enlightenment: Satsang Weekend, March 11-13, 2016: 8. Centering, Grounding, Immovability

Satsang with Giten on Buddha:

Bhumis – Ten Steps to Enlightenment

From Satsang Weekend with Giten, March 11-13, 2016, in Stockholm 

Bhumis –  Ten Steps to Enlightenment 

8. ACHALA: Centering, Grounding, 


The eighth Bhumi is ACHALA, which means centering, grounding and immovability.

Buddha says that one should learn to be centered, unmoving and grounded.

Whatsoever happens, one should learn to remain unwavering.

One should learn to come closer to your center.

One will not be wavering, one will not go off-center.

Even if the whole world disappears, one should learn to remain unwavering.

The more closer you come to your center, the more silent, satisfied and happy you will be.

A great integrity and groundedness will arise in your being.

Then things will happen, but they will not disturb your center.

Life comes, death comes, success and failure come, happiness and sadness come, love and aloneness come and pain and satisfaction come.

They come and go, they pass away, but the inner witnessing center remains. 

On the eighth Bhumi, the meditator and bodhisattva, the buddha in essence, also develops the eighth Paramita PRANIHAN, which means surrender and letting-go.

On the eighth level, the meditator and bodhisattva overcome all afflictions to meditation and their minds are always completely absorbed in the dharma.

Eight Bhumi bodhisattvas are irreversible, because there is no longer any possibility that they waver on the path or backside.

They are destined for full buddhahood, and there is no longer any inclinations to seek a personal nirvana.

Their resolve is to work for the benefit of others and they pervade the universe with feelings of compassion and friendliness toward all sentient beings.

They enter into meditation and emptiness with little effort. 

Their skill and compassion in teaching others are automatic and spontaneous. There is no need to plan how to best benefit others, since these bodhisattva’s skillfully adapt themselves to every situation.

At this Bhumi, the bodhisattva becomes able to choose his place of rebirth. 

In the book “Presence – Working from Within: The Psychology of Being”, I talk about working with people from love, awareness and silence:

Presence – Working from Within

What is presence? What does it mean to be present for oneself and for another person? What awareness components contain the therapeutic process based on awareness? How can we develop our presence so that our presence and intuition becomes a source of healing in the contact with another person? How can we be in contact with the Whole?

Working with people is basically a question of energy and awareness.

Part of the therapist’s ability comes from technical skills and part comes from the inner being. The first part of this book is about discovering our inner being, to develop a meditative presence and quality. It is about developing our own presence so that our presence and intuition becomes a source of love, joy, acceptance, awareness, healing, silence, wisdom and creativity in the contact with a client. The meditative presence aims at helping the therapist to increase the joy, depth and effectiveness in the healing and therapeutic work.

This book is designed to create an understanding for how healing happens in therapeutic work. The underlying theme of the book is meditation – but not meditation as a static technique – but as the capacity to BE with ourselves and with another person in a quality of watchful awareness, acceptance and relaxation.

The most important therapeutic capacity is the ability to be present with an open heart and to be grounded in our inner being, in our essence and authentic self, in the meditative quality within, through which we can meet another person. It is to meet that which is already perfect within a person.

Working with people from awareness is about shifting dimension from a personality oriented way of working to a being oriented way of working. It is about shifting focus from the personality, the psychological “I” to the inner being, the authentic self, the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness, the capacity to surrender to life. The basic awareness component in working with people from awareness is to develop a presence and an inner quality to work from. Presence means to be grounded in our being, in our essence and authentic self. Presence is to work from a meditative presence, from the inner “yes”-quality, from a state of non-doing. Presence is to be in the moment, in the here and now.

Presence is about being available and to respond to the truth of the moment. It is to respond to the moment in a way that creates a fragrance of love.

Presence is not about trying to change another person our trying to make things happen, it is about being available and to respond with the truth in the moment.

Presence is about how every action can arise from the quality, which we call awareness – the presence of our soul.

Presence is not really something new. Presence is simply to rediscover the inner quality, which is already present within ourselves. Presence is the capacity to be present for another person with an open heart and to be grounded in our inner being. It is to be present for another person as a supporting light, a supporting presence – and simply to be present for another person can basically help.

Presence is a double and paradoxical phenomenon. It means both to be present and to be absent. It means to be present with our inner being and to be absent from our idea of a separate “I”.

Presence means to come in contact with a deeper quality within ourselves. Presence is like a flowing inner river, an inner source of energy, which gives vision, joy, inspiration, direction and creative impulses. Presence is our essence.

We all have this place deep inside ourselves, but it is often covered with personality aspects, unconscious attitudes and experiences from the past.

Working with people from love and awareness means to develop the capacity to respond to the inner being of another person, to his essence and authentic self.

Presence means to respond to another person in a way that makes his inner being deepen and expand. It is about developing a presence so that our presence and intuition becomes a source of healing in the contact with another person.

Presence is the inner being, the inner “yes”-quality, the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness. Presence is to meet another person in meditation. Presence is to invite another person in meditation. It is a meeting in meditation. It is a meeting in love, joy, acceptance, sincerity, understanding, silence and oneness. It is a friendship, cooperation and an investigation after truth. And when the truth is discovered, it is larger than the two people, who are investigating it – and both people are enriched by this investigation.

Working with people from presence and awareness means to meet a person beyond the personality. It is to meet the being of another person. It is to meet the soul of another person.

Neuroses and psychiatric problems basically have its roots in a feeling of not being love, of not being part of the Whole. People with psychiatric problems have lost their contact with their own roots. They have lost contact with the inner being, with their inner center. They have lost contact with their own inner source of love, truth and wholeness.

In reality, we are really one with the other person. We are not separated from the other person. Through giving love to the other person, we are really giving love to ourselves. When we give love to another person, we are really giving love to the Whole.

When two beings meet, a presence, a love, an acceptance, a silence, a meditation and a meeting beyond separation occurs. There arises a sense of perfection, a feeling of coming home. 

I think that I have always had the ability to turn my attention within myself and to go into the inner presence, to go into the inner silence and emptiness, when I have needed it. In this inner silence, I can let go of all frustration, fear, anger and sorrow. The spiritual dimension in therapeutic work basically works, because we are all one. Working with people from awareness is basically about working out of that which is already perfect within a person. Working with people from awareness is basically about seeing what develops and expands the inner being of a person. It is about bringing forth into the light of awareness the unconscious psychological patterns that prevents a person from being in contact with his own authentic being. It is about seeing what prevents a person from being nourished from his inner source of love, joy, acceptance, truth, silence, wisdom and wholeness. It is about seeing what expands the total being of a person both in relation to himself, in relation to other people, in relation to creativity and in relation to the Whole to be able to take further steps in his spiritual growth.

Working with people from awareness means to develop and expand that which is already perfect within a person. It is about seeing what expand the inner being of a person and to see where the development potential is in the life of the person for example in meditation and inner growth, in relationships or in creativity. It is about seeing what creates difficulties in a person’s inner growth, in his relationships with other people or in his work and creativity.

Presence is about finding our own unique way of being and working with people. It is about working from the authentic inner being, from the meditative quality within ourselves, from the inner source of love and truth. It is about discovering what we really want to share with other people. It is about discovering that which makes our heart dance with joy to share with people. It is about discovering that which really touches us and awakes a deep feeling of joy and meaning to share with other people.

When we are authentic, when we act from presence and awareness, it also gives nourishment to the inner being of the people around us.

Life does not come with a manual. The challenge of life is to learn to trust life. In courses, I create a situation where course participants can discover their own inner being and to learn to listen to their own heart, to trust their own intuition, joy, intelligence, inner light and understanding. The courses are a situation to learn to live their own truth.

Working with people from awareness is based on the understanding that our advice is only authentic when it comes from our own insight, understanding and experience.

Sometimes my course participants have complained that I do not give them specific advice about what to do or not to, but giving advice is easy. And it takes away the person’s own responsibility to listen to his own inner source of love, truth and wisdom, which already know the right answer. This may also be an answer that I do not see. 

The atmosphere and climate of a group of people can either be a “yes”- or “no”-climate. The atmosphere in a group of people can either be uninspiring, dull and boring when the people of the group says “no” to listening to their own truth and do not chose activities that are nourishing for their souls. The atmosphere of a group of people is loving, creative, exciting and inspiring when the people of the group says “yes”, listens to their own truth and chooses activities that are nourishing for their souls and have a high level of joy and satisfaction.

In my own life, I took a conscious decision many years ago that I wanted quality in my life. It was a conscious decision that I wanted people around me that are prepared to say “yes” and to take responsibility for themselves – and who do not just take energy by saying ”no”, not taking responsibility for themselves and resist being present in different ways.


Truth is a quality in the moment. It arises when we have trust to what happens and when we are in contact with what Existence wants us to do. This quality makes the moment shine with an inner joy and satisfaction. It gives a deep inner satisfaction, which radiates on the outside as love like pebbles creates waves on water.

When we say “yes” to the truth of the moment, our whole being expands.

Presence is about daring to stay in a quality of “not knowing”. Presence is about resting in the silence and emptiness within without knowing what the next step will be. Presence is about daring to rest in the emptiness within, which has no past or future, and where authentic impulses arise in the moment.

In the therapeutic process based on love and awareness, there exists no “I” – just a presence, a love and a truth in the moment. It is to live in trust and appreciation for what life chooses to offer. It is to float with the river of life; it is to rest on the river.


The depth in healing- and therapeutic work comes basically from the capacity to allow things to be as they are, without any wish that they should be different than they are and without any will to change them. This means for the therapist to develop an accepting attitude, a trust and a compassion, for how life develops moment to moment.

To work from our inner being is to meet another person in love, joy, meditation and silence without any barrier in-between.

When the therapist can rest in himself, without intention, without ambition, without trying and without fighting, then every new opportunity to meet a client becomes a source of joy.

It becomes a joy to work with people on a spiritual plane, to act for that which is larger than ourselves.

Paramitas – Ten Provisions for the Inner Journey


 8. Surrender, Letting-go



The eighth Paramita is PRANIHAN, which means surrender and letting-go.


Buddha says: You have to do much, but the ultimate happens when you are not doing anything, when you are in a state of letting-go.


Pranihan is a state of letting-go.


You have to anything that you can do, it will prepare the ground, but it cannot cause the truth to happen.


When you have done everything that you can do, then let go, then relax.


To be able to surrender, we need to develop a trust.


In that trust and relaxation, in that letting go, the truth happens.


Truth is not something that we can do.


Truth is not something that we can invent.


Truth comes, it descends, when we surrender, when we let-go.

– Swami Dhyan Giten

Giten on The Art of Dying

Giten on

The Art of Death

From satsang, April 30, 2015


“To be able to die consciously, we need to prepare for death while we are still living.


Only if we live consciously, we can die consciously.


Only a meditator is able to die consciously as life is an opportunity to prepare for death.  


Meditation is a death, a death of the ego.


Death is not in opposition of life, death is the finale, the crescendo of life. How we die shows us how we have been living.


Death is not an end, death is a new beginning, a new life.”


– Swami Dhyan Giten

Question 2
Past life
– The Spiritual Journey to
Very interesting and thought-provoking. But the reasons/causes for the desire/urge to mentally reach a higher level of consciousness,and who could be those fortunate ones needs to be explained/clarified.Obviously this path is only meant for a few who can progress and have the potential to reach the exalted goal of Bliss. Can past life experiences/knowledge have a role,and how to ascertain that?Shall be thankful for enlightenment on this.
Mrityunjoy Chakravarty, India
Dear Mrityunjoy Chakravarty,
What is past life? How do past lives and spiritual growth relate to each other? How can memories of past lives teach us to live more present in the here and now? We are all ancient people. Nobody is new here.
Life’s only law is change. Everything is continuously changing, evolving and developing. Hindus say that it takes 840 million lives to become a human being, which emphasises the precious gift of being a human being. But most people waste this precious gift of life. Instead of recognizing the possibility to search for God, for the divine, for true happiness, people waste their lives striving and fighting for power, money, position or fame.
We have been living lives as stones, flowers, trees and animals in order to develop our consciousness. Stones, flowers and animals also have consciousness. The more matter, the less consciousness. The more consciousness, the less matter. God is not a person, God is the underlying thread of consciousness in Existence.
The stones, flowers and trees live below the mind, the animals live by their instincts, man lives in the mind and the awakened one lives beyond the mind. All stones, flowers, trees, animals and human beings are on a spiritual journey to become awakened, to become enlightened. I remember sitting and meditating beside a slow flowing river in India, and I got the feeling that this river could teach me all the secrets of the mystery of life. If we learn to surrender to a stone, a flower or a river, it becomes a door to the Whole. The whole can be found in the part, and the part can be found in the whole. With this vision, we understand that every place is a spiritual place. A spiritual man is happy with the whole existence. He says “yes” to the whole existence.
The current climate change is an outer mirror of our inner consciousness. It is an outer mirror of our attitude to try to conquer nature, instead of being in harmony with nature, but in the end the part can never conquer the whole.
Try as a meditation, to be with a stone, a flower or a tree, and you will find that they have consciousness. If you become friend with a tree, you will find that the tree will welcome you as a friend. The tree will be happy to see you.
My basic profession is as an actor, and I have learnt much about life through working as an actor. Working as an actor is really a spiritual profession, since it means to create life on the stage. It means to play a role totally, while at the same time you know deep down inside yourself that you are not the role that you are playing. Working as an actor gave me early a spiritual discipline, which taught me a lot about awareness and meditation. Life is also about learning to play different roles, and learning to change between different roles with the same easiness that you change shirt.
It is the same situation with past lives. Through becoming conscious about different roles that we play in different life situations, we can create a distance to these roles. Memories from past lives can also make us aware that we have lived before, and that there is a part of ourselves that survive death, and which belong to the deathless and the eternal within ourselves.
The door to memories of past lives is to create a conscious relationship to death. To remember past lives, we need to develop a conscious relationship to death, since past lives, per definition, means that we die. The whole theme of past lives is often surrounded with fear, since it basically means that we need to accept that we die. Meditation is the way to create a conscious relationship to death. The key to meditation is commitment, regularity and a quality of heart.
Many times we can get an intuitive feeling that we already know a person, who we have just met. Through an understanding of past lives, we can find a relevant explanation for this feeling.
Nature is also wise in her gifts. Nature do not give gifts, which we are not ripe for, and which do not have meaning for us. Before memories from past lives has any deeper meaning for us, we first need to be clear with the basic themes of our life, for example our relationship to ourselves, our relationship to other people and our relationship to creativity. Past lives is not a way to escape from life, it is a way of understanding life and ourselves in a deeper way.
It is nothing sensational about memories from past lives, but it gives us a deeper understanding of life. We have not been more awake in a past life, than we are in this life. What keeps us in the continuous circle of life and death, of rebirth and death, is desires and identification with personality aspects. The door to freedom from being reborn is to discover our authentic inner being, the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness, the capacity to surrender to life. Each life is like the pearls of a necklace, while the thread that keep the pearls together, is like the successive growth of the inner being towards spiritual maturity, towards enlightenment, towards awakening.
The whole meaning of past lives are that we grow and develop until we finally discover the inner being, our authentic self, where we already are one with life. From the limited perspective of a single life, and with our limited physical vision, different phenomenons in life can be difficult to understand. But with the understanding and perspective of past lives, we can see life in a another light. We can see life with a deeper vision and with a broader understanding. It is like the difference between seeing life from the limited perspective of the valley, and to view life from the vision of the summit of the mountain.
Buddha’s insight about past lives was that no real spiritual growth can happen before we know our past lives. It is first when we know our inner potential, and we know where we come from, that we know where we are going.
Pointers about past life
1. Past life has nothing to do with a belief in reincarnation, past life is about a direct insight. Through direct insight, no belief is necessary. There is not really necessary to legitimate memories as past lives. When we go deeper into ourselves, memories come up from the subconscious. These memories has meaning and relevance independent if we label those memories as past life or not. We do not really need to believe in past lives, we can just allow these memories to arise in our consciousness. Through not labelling these memories as past lives, and through staying open in a quality of “not knowing”, we can continue to be open for the truth.
2. Accept the fact that past life means that we die.
3. We do not need to engage ourselves emotionally in the memories of past lives. It is more about observing these memories with presence, understanding and awareness.
4. Memories of past lives often follow how we live our present life. If we, for example, live a safe and secure life in our present life, we will probably attract memories from safe and secure lives in the past. If we are angry and insecure in the present life, we will probably attract similar memories and experiences from past lives.
5. When memories from past lives arise in your consciousness, see what the life lesson is in that life. See what you should learn in that life. See also if there is a relation between themes in the past life, and in how you live your present life. See what you have chosen up to now, and what your choices and possibilities are in the present life.
My memories from past lives
A beloved friend since many lives told me that she had a consultation with a medium, and somehow they began to talk about me. I laughed when she told me that the medium had described me as “an old soul.”
A valuable insight through past lives was that I discovered that I consciously has chosen to walk the path of teacher since several lives to learn to teach and communicate with people on a subtle and deeper level. This conscious choice to walk the path of a teacher includes past lives as a Tibetan monk and counsellor in Dalai Lamas’s residence Potala, a district Pharaoh in Egypt, a medicine man among Sioux Indians in USA, a medical doctor in USA and two lives in England as an abbedissa at a convent and as a teacher at Oxford University.
My earliest memory of past lives comes from the ancient continent Atlantis, where I was very tall man. Atlantis was a culture of a very high spiritual and material development, which was divided into two different races: priests and workers. The priests had a average height of 2 meters, and had a trunk-like development around the nose through which they communicated by telepathy.
In Tibet, I sat in the reception in a religious monastery for 8 years. My work was to ascertain the spiritual development of the new adepts to see if they should be accepted into the monastery. After 8 years in the monastery, I became tired of rules and seriousness, instead of love and humour. After much conflict, I left the monastery. Frustrated I walked around India, searching for a spiritual truth which I did not really know what it was, until my death.
In the catacombs of Colosseum in Rome, I escaped as one of the first Christians and disciples of Jesus. Later I was caught and thrown to the lions.
In the Golden Town in Egypt, I was a districts Pharaoh, whose life lesson was to rule with love and compassion.
In the town Constantinople in Turkey, I was a seller of authentic carpets and a Sufi mystic.
In one life, I was a medicine man among Sioux Indians in USA. A wise 80 year old Indian with a stone face, who in periods went out alone in nature for three days to meditate and receive guidance from The Great Spirit to bring back to the tribe.
In the next life, I was a medical doctor and surgeon in New York. My office was full with Indian tools for healing, and I secretly healed patients despite the fact that this was strictly forbidden according to the regulations. I never felt at home in New York, because I had a strong longing to be closer to nature. That this longing came from living my whole past life out in nature was nothing that I was not aware of then.
I also lived in England during two lives. In one life, I was an abbedissa at a convent, and in one life I was a stern but much loved teacher for boys at The Oxford University.
In Scotland, I was a farmer, and in this life nothing more exciting happened except than drinking tea with my wife in the evenings.
In Paris, I was an artist, who committed suicide.
In my last life, I was a disciple to the Russian enlightened Master George Gurdjieff in St Petersburg in Russia. I also discovered that my early passion for theater in this life was because theater was the only spiritual discipline that I recognized early in this life. Gurdjieff used very intensive theater methods to teach his disciples in meditation.
Examples of aspects from past lives in individual consultations and courses
After first opening the door to remember my own past lives, the door also opened to see the past life of others. To see aspects from past lives is not something that I focus on during an individual consultation or a course, but if aspects of past lives comes up authentically during an individual consultation or a course, then this can be relevant and meaningful for the other person in his present life.
In the following two examples from individual consultations, aspects of past lives has been relevant for the other person and it has provided keys to understanding for the other person in his present life. It is also interesting to see that there may be conscious choices and patterns, which are like an underlying thread through several lives.
In these consultations, I made an intuitive and clairvoyant energy reading of the development of the other person’s chakra system and the balance between his inner man and woman to make a general assessment of the person’s general level of awareness and spiritual growth.
The human aura is the energy field, which surrounds a person and which also relates to the development of the chakra system. Different chakras can also have different colours, which stands for different psychological and spiritual themes and qualities.

What are the path of love and the path of meditation? There are basically two different paths to enlightenment. These two paths are The path of love and The path of meditation. The path of love is the female path to enlightenment and The path of meditation is the male path to enlightenment. The path of love is the path of love, joy, relationships, devotion and surrender. The path of meditation is the path of meditation, silence, aloneness and freedom. These two paths have different ways, but they have the same goal. Through love and surrender the person that walks The path of love discovers the inner silence. Through meditation and aloneness the person that walks The path of meditation discovers the inner source of love. These two paths are like climbing the mountain of enlightenment through different routes, but the two paths are meeting on the summit of the mountain – and discover an inner integration between love and meditation, between relating and aloneness.

Before I accept to work with a student now, I also make an intuitive and clairvoyant evaluation about which spiritual paths that the student has walked before in previous lives. This intuitive assessment give information about the spiritual level that the student has attained, and it also makes it easier to guide the person spiritually if he has followed a certain path in the past.

A female student of mine laughed recently when I told her that she had followed The path of love in several past lives. She commented: “You have told me three times now that I have walked the path of love and silence, but with my head I still do not understand it.” But this overall assessment of her spiritual growth until now, and of the spiritual paths that she had walked, made all the pieces of her life puzzle fit together – and brought a new, creative light to all her life choices in her current life. A male student of mine, who was a Tibetan monk in a previous life, walks The path of meditation, and I notice how I change my language and the methods that I recommend when I guide him along the path of meditation. I now work with students who walk both The path of love and The path of meditation, which also allows me to discover a deeper integration of love and meditation on my path to enlightenment.

For more information about how to ascertain past life experience and intuitive energy reading, I would also like to recommend my book “Presence – Working from Within. The Psychology of Being” (the book is available on the international book site
For secrecy reasons, the names of the persons in these examples has been changed.
Example 1: Michael, 25 years
With Michael, I could see a pattern of 5 past lives, where he worked as a medical doctor and healer with focus on service to other people.
In one life, he was a traditional medical doctor and worked in a hospital in USA. His life lesson in this life was to learn what is basically healing in the relation between doctor and patient. In the next life he took a deeper step in this pattern, and worked as a natural doctor and healer on Hawaii. He worked close to people in a small village, where the mother’s came with their sick children. His ways of working in this life was psychic diagnosis, intuition and healing.
During the consultation with Michael, I could see that he had a very large and light-blue aura, which gave me the feeling of clarity and service to people. His heart- and throat chakra both had a green colour, and gave me a feeling of healing qualities.
Example 2: Bob, 32 years
With Bob, I could see that he had a great depth, and that he was an old and experienced soul, who had walked on earth many times.
When I first looked at his past lives, it was like playing a slot machine, and see the wheels turn life by life. But finally the wheels slowed down, and focused on two past lives. The first life was in Egypt, where he was a man with a lot of power and influence over people. The second life was his last life before the present life, where he was a captain on a ship in England.
I could see that he had a pattern of six lives in power positions, where his life lesson was to learn to handle power, and to learn that real power is love and compassion. I could also see that he would be attracted to similar positions again until he had learnt this life lesson.
In his aura, I could see that the largest field was light purple with two smaller green fields on the sides. From this I draw the conclusion that the green fields would mean a healing process of going deeper within himself. This would mean that the colour and the quality of the purple field would become darker. This gave me the feeling of a mystic, and that his next step in learning to handle power, would be through intuition and psychic powers. This would teach him that the active component behind clairvoyance is love and compassion.
