Majorca’s first chakra

As an avowed couch potato it was certainly a challenge for me to scale the path over hill and dale from Sant Elm up to the monastery of Sa Trapa. But I really wanted to see and feel the place where Majorca’s first chakra is situated. And the effort has really paid off.

Human chakras – subtle energy centres – are situated along the spine, opening to the front and back of the body like funnels. If chakras are blocked, weak or closed, the energy system does not work properly. This is a very simple explanation…

Our planet Earth has also got different chakras, just like every country and area. And therefore my favourite island Majorca has also got seven energy centres. They are positioned along the ‘spine’ of the island, the Tramuntana mountains. They stretch from the south-west to the north-east of the island (see picture further below).

The first chakra can be found in the south-west, near the monastery of Sa Trapa, which was built in 1810 by Trappist monks in this very remote situation. It was already abandoned in 1824. Its diameter is about 1 km, with the centre near the remains of the monastery ruin which are now being rebuilt. The energy of the chakra is definitely masculine.

Interestingly the chakra is directly opposite the island of Dragonera, where the Paris meridian crosses the offshore island. Whereas Gerd felt the chakra in the form of goose pimples (see photo), I took my pendant and used it as a pendulum to find out where the energy was strongest.

Now we would like to visit the next six meridians of Majorca. Three of them are easy to find, and the other three require time, patience and a little luck.

From Paris to Majorca

Soon Gerd and I are going to walk in the footsteps of Mary Magdalene in Southern France together with a group of like-minded people. We are going to travel this region, where Mary Magdalene is worshipped by a great number of people from all over the world till this day, for one week. Every year, tens of thousands visit her places in the Southern French area around Rennes-le-Château.

And precisely through this spiritual heartland runs the old prime Meridian of Paris (also called Rose Line), which was determined by the French astronomer François Arago in the early 19th century and was only superseded by today’s Greenwich meridian in the year 1884. The Paris meridian is steeped in many mystic myths and legends, because it is said to possess exceptional energetic powers.

What I did not know for a long time is the fact that the Paris meridian also runs through Majorca for a few hundred metres, in fact only half an hour away from our residence. In the very west of Majorca, the small island Dragonera, which lies offshore the main island, is situated, and this is where we detected this magical line.

However, we were not able to sense any special energies there, because too many hikers and ramblers were out and about on that sunny day. But we have also brought back some pictures from our trip – and we are full of pleasant anticipation regarding our Mary Magdalene journey in May of this year.

Mañana – Tomorrow  


I was born and raised in Austria. Admittedly, I am not used to having to pull a number when I go into a store to buy something. Here in Mallorca, you have to pull a waiting number for pretty much any business you attempt to do: whether you are buying fruits or whether you are getting a contract for a cell phone. Same story at the post office, IKEA’s furniture store, or when you want to rent a car.

When I was new here, it really ticked me off. It seemed that the longer the queue was for waiting customers, the slower the pace was at which the sales people worked. But I had no other choice than to wait again and again, to surrender to what I could not control.

There is a reason why the Spaniards have the reputation to say “mañana”, meaning tomorrow, when they cannot (or maybe don’t want to) do something and try to postpone it for some other time (which they are unable to tell you) in the next future. Maybe it’s just us biased Central Europeans clinging to an old cliché that wants to require citizens of other countries to conform to the standards of our performance oriented society. Or perhaps it really is just Spanish philosophy of how to live life.

Fact is, that I am starting to like this slowness. Even when it will probably still take light years for me personally to adjust to this pace (unfortunately). Observing myself I have noticed that deep down I hold the people of Spain in high regard. Nothing can shake their calm when it comes to taking enough time for things that matter to them. So, yes, they are totally able to just live into the day when they feel like it. Let’s hope that it stays this way and they won’t succumb someday to the pace of Central Europe. Well, if they do, I pray it will be “tomorrow”, after all, shouldn’t there be enough time for it “mañana”?



In 1749, the Spanish Franciscan padre Junipero Serra (1713-1784), who had been born in the small village Petra in the northeast of Majorca and there had been trained for being a padre, went on a missionary expedition to the New World together with some fellow brethren. He went by ship from Cádiz to Veracruz, today’s Mexico. There he founded a number of missions, learned the language of the Native Americans and taught them – in a today highly controversial way – how to make vast tracts of land arable and how to work them. The pictures show his place of birth Petra, where a museum was built in his honour and other memorials were erected in a more or less artistic way.

A wonderful week draws to a close

Day 6 of our spiritual holiday seminar week on Majorca: During the last two days the participants kept working hard on the healing of their inner child. By means of exercises, meditations and channelings and with the aid of the symbol cards and the Aura Essences profound transformation processes took place in a short space of time. During leisure time enjoyment, relaxation and a lot of fun were on the agenda.

Tonight we are going to deepen and cement the changes that have taken place in this week in the course of a final ritual. The bottom line of a participant is, “This few days have been more helpful than years of conversational therapy.” Tomorrow we are going to conclude our week with an excursion to the Majorcan capital Palma. I am already looking forward to the next holiday seminar, which probably will take place in Tuscany…

Family Constellations with Symbol Cards

Also yesterday the seminar participants started their day with an abundant breakfast on the hotel terrace directly above the beach. Then we went up to our seminar room – which has a beautiful view over the ocean – and intensively “worked” on the healing of our inner child with the help of the energized symbols and essences. Today family constellations took the center stage, which we performed with blocks of wood. A lot got to be realized, delivered and consigned to healing. The symbols not only revealed tender subjects, but they also operated energetically by means of the morphogenetic field and transformed old and sometimes unconscious blockages.

Since experience has shown that this kind of work is very profound, I always have very experienced therapists with me in my seminars. Lutz Mück is always there for the group, whenever too strong emotions should surface. If requested, he also continues to work with the participants individually in single sessions at the end of the seminar day, in case the issue that has come up in the seminar should need further attention.

At lunch time and at the evening we always relax, either by going on a beach stroll, by going to the restaurant, by going swimming (if the sea is not too cold) or by a cozy get-together with the group. Yesterday after the seminar we were visited by Beate Gliedt (spiritual education), Ines Hupfeld (spiritual nanny), Sandra Puhl (spiritual midwife) and Lilly Wong (spiritual healing of femininity), who exchanged views with some women of our group who work in similar fields. And today our excursion is on the agenda. The weather seems to be perfect – so let’s take pot luck and see what the day has ready for us!

The seminar week has begun

I have been looking forward to this and now the time has finally come. Today was the official beginning of our seminar week in the southeast of Majorca, in the small bay of Santanyí. Our mutual days are going to be spent under the guidance of the Ascended Master Sarah Tamar, the daughter of Mary Magdalene and Easa/Jesus. The main focus of this self-awareness seminar, in the course of which we are going to work with the energized symbols of Mary Magdalene and her companions, is going to be on the healing of the inner child, and all participants are aware of the fact that the following days are going to be very intense. In the inaugural meditation I got to transmit live channeled messages from Sarah Tamar, Mary, Mary Magdalene and Joseph to the group. I am already looking forward to tomorrow and I am anxious to know what the next few days will bring.

Viva Mallorca!

It has already got about that Majorca has been my second (?) home for some years now. However, it took me uncommonly long to set my foot on this island. But already during my first stay, I lost my heart to this exceptional beauty of the Mediterranean. The island offers sandy bays, rocky shores, placid lines of hills, rugged rock formations, olive groves, valleys of oranges and lemons, almond blossoms, turquoise water, art and culture… What more could a heart desire!?

Thus it did not take me long to conceive the desire to hold my holiday and self-awareness seminars on this very island. No sooner said than done! A beautiful place was found soon and thus it is that the seminar week already takes place for the sixth time in the southeast of the island. Saturday is the big day! I am going to tell of my experiences regularly!

Our seminar hotel in the bay of Santanyí

Which amenities does a hotel need to offer so that a seminar group may feel comfortable there for a whole week? And what’s more: Where do you find such a hotel? This question posed itself to me a few years ago, namely when I began to make plans for the first holiday seminar.

The hotel should be situated directly at the beach, off the beaten tourist track, it should have a good infrastructure and should not be too expensive. Additionally, it should possess a nice seminar room (with ocean view)… The hotel Cala Santanyí in the southwest of Majorca meets all those criteria, which is why we are already spending our seminar week for the sixth time there.

For some of the seminar participants this already feels a little bit like “coming home”, since they attend the holiday seminar every year. Now I have to pack my suitcase, because my plane is going to take off in a few hours.

Majorca – We’re coming!
