In this article we will be looking deeper into Life, and seeing the Divine Magic that is always there, for those with eyes to see it. As part of the Introduction of my book, I write the following:
The words in this book may be interpreted on a number of levels.
Some of the seemingly straightforward writings about events in my life will appear to be a mere narration to one reader and take the form of a “waking dream” to another, depending on the individual reader’s level of consciousness and memories of events that have taken place in that person’s own life or other associations that will surface, causing sudden illuminating realizations. These parts of the book can in fact be likened to Aesop’s fables, as they have ethical lessons encouraging you to become more conscious of your values and priorities. The same applies to the dreams and inner experiences described here, which will be merely symbolic in nature to some and give clear insights to others. Even if you do not understand the dreams and parables herein, their imagery will sow seeds in your subconsciousness, so that you may understand their meaning at a later time when they have matured. Then you will be able to enjoy their fruits. For those of you who love “connecting the dots”, solving riddles and noticing patterns as much as I do, you have only to look deeply into names, dates, numbers, animals and other symbols mentioned, and do further investigation on your own.
Within these pages you will find a continuous flow and an intentional design. For instance, each chapter number is designed to fit the content of the chapter in question, and the number and numerological value of each image is likewise designed to resonate with the image portrayed. And sometimes hidden messages may emerge when reading the words at the left or right end of the page vertically. As such, the book is infused with a higher Intelligence, and no part of it is randomly created. (End excerpt)
Readers have told me that they experience surprising synchronicities in their own lives while reading the book, and that it’s as if the book is speaking to them on a personal level… which it is. (Two 5 star reviews here.) The book is designed in a universal way so that it can speak to each individual person regardless of their background, culture and belief systems, bypassing these and going straight to the Heart and the Inner Knowing (Spirit) within. The intention is to show you where to look, but not tell you what to see. What you see belongs to you, as it arises from within your own Being.
However, in order to illustrate that which on the surface may appear to be mere narration, I will now “interpret” most of the first chapter so that it can be seen in a deeper way. By doing this, we will be able to see the Divine workings of Spirit, moving in magical and mystical ways. I do not wish to “tell you what to see”, but simply invite you to look at the examples I share with you here, so that they may trigger your own Inner Knowing. The examples from my life are meant to help you see your own life more clearly, not just the life you live now, but also looking back and understanding more of who you are by seeing your past in a new light; thereby deepening your recognition of your true self. The key phrase we can use in this context is: Nothing is by chance.
Order is heaven’s first law. ~ Alexander Pope ~
In other words, there is a deeper (or higher) way of seeing everything. One has only to look. And so, as the title here indicates, we will now “lift the veil” and see Spirit in even the seemingly ordinary, mundane events I will be sharing.
The very first picture I’ve included in my book is this one:
May your Inner Knowing provide you with Clear Recognition. ♥
The first sentence in the book, Chapter One, reads as follows:
“My parents, Brit and Jenö, met on Lake Serpentine in Hyde Park, London, in 1958.”
This can be likened to “The Beginning”, with Eve and Adam in the secluded / hidden (Hyde) Garden of Eden (Park). The Serpent is there, as is Water (Lake), meaning the primordial sea from which all life is born. The name “Brit” (or Brigid) from Latin Brigitta means “exalted one”, and “Jenö”, a Hungarian version of Latin Eugenius, means “well born”. That the meanings of these two names indicate nobility or royalty is confirmed further down in the same paragraph: “Two weeks later they were sitting on a bench in the garden of Windsor Castle writing home to their families that they had found the person they were going to marry.” Windsor Castle is thus seen as a symbol of a royal family they belong to.
The most ancient recorded name for the lands of Britain – England, Scotland and Wales – is The Isle of Albion, and Albion translates as “white”. Our family name on my father’s side is Weisz, which is the Hungarian version of Weiss or White. This is one of the oldest known surnames, and it was chosen long ago in order to point to our divine bloodline without actually revealing it. White indicates purity, and it is always used to symbolize divinity. When our family moved to France, the name was changed to clair (= transparent) and Sinclair.
The Family Crest (coat of arms) for the name “White” depicts two crowned golden lions on either side of a griffin. The griffin is a creature with the head, wings, and talons of an eagle and the body of a lion. It represents valour and bravery; vigilance; and most important is a Guardian of treasure. Against its white background, the “treasure” it guards is this family’s divine bloodline. Much more can be said regarding the crest’s symbolism, but this can easily be found elsewhere. (For anyone interested, this is a good site for crest symbolism.)
I write much more about our divine bloodline later in the book, so I won’t do so here, but just point out our family relation to the Count of Saint Germain, also known as Hungarian Master Rákóczi, son of Francis II Rákóczi, by showing you the striking resemblence between him and my father. (More in-depth background information here.)
The story continues, and I’ll skip to where my parents give me my birth name, Linda Brit. They chose the name Linda because of its Spanish meaning, which is “pretty”, but it has many other meanings as well. The most important one to know is “sea serpent”, derived from the Scandinavian Lindworm. Linda also means “water serpent” in a Native American language, and so in both of these languages I become a Serpent, and we see how the symbol of the Serpent from “Lake Serpentine” is repeated in my name. The serpent is one of the oldest and most widespread symbols in the world. It is the Serpent coiled around the World Tree, the Ouroboros, Quetzalcoatl (the Feathered Serpent), the Kundalini, Sanskrit Naga etc. The Snake is also my Chinese Astrological sign, so I am a “serpent” both by name and by my birth date 08.08.1965. It is also often inter-changed with the dragon, like a winged serpent (such as Quetzalcoatl); and taking into account that my Chinese Astrological sign for my second birth, 11.11.2000 is the Dragon, we see how this interchanging relates to me in a very personal way. (More about my names here: Second Birth 11.11.2000 and here: Why I am FEMALE)
The Serpent represents fertility or a creative life force. As snakes shed their skin through moulting, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, healing and immortality. The Ouroboros is a symbol of eternity and continual renewal of life. And so, with the serpent symbolism, we once again see the divinity (divine bloodline) mentioned above.
Continuing with the book:
“By this time my parents had moved to Roundhay Road in Leeds, where my father had been commissioned by The Lutheran World Federation to organize an English-language congregation for the many non-English people in Leeds and vicinity with Lutheran background from their home countries.”
Here we begin to see the contours of a theme. My father, a Lutheran pastor, is a “servant of God”, firmly establishing a Higher Force / Spirit in my life, which becomes my foundation since birth. The Lutheran World Federation points to a global organization, and is as such a symbol for universality. We can also see universality in the address of Roundhay Road, which can be interpreted as King Arthur’s way (Road) of using a round table (Roundhay) in order to show the equality of him and his knights. My father’s role is to connect people from many different countries in a spiritual fellowship, thereby creating oneness in multiculturalism. I see this as crystal clear symbolism of my own role here as well, although I am not tied to any one religion, but am here to unite them all.
Uniting the non-English people in England using the English language has a deeper meaning as well, of course. Although there are negative elements concerning the way the British colonized so many geographical areas on Earth, it has also served a highly spiritual purpose by spreading a language that is now understood in nearly all parts of the world, thus enabling us to communicate with one another in spite of differing nationalities and native tongues. If this isn’t a perfect design by Spirit to bridge international relationships, I don’t know what is.
And so, my incarnating into this particular geographical area of Earth can be seen as Spirit’s intention to let English be my native (first) language. But there is more to it than this. Given that I am meant to be universal, not only in language, but also in my very Being, in which country could I incarnate and still be “neutral”? The answer is England, because of the Prime Meridian at 0 degrees, with 0 (Zero) indicating no direction and no preferences. Like the round table, 0 is a circle with no beginning or end, and nothing higher or lower. It is whole, neutral and universal. 0 represents pure potentiality. It is the point from which all other numbers spring forth. Even visually, the number zero is symbolic of the seed, womb or egg from which pure potential emerges. Because the zero also visually resembles a circle, this is symbolic of eternity, evolution and infinity.
Naturally, my incarnation date is of importance as well. 8 + 8 + 1 +9 + 6 + 5 = 19/10/1. 8 is the number of Christ and it is repeated as a double 8 because I am Jesus Christ reincarnated, and so I carry this vibration both since birth, and by receiving the Cosmic (Christ) Consciousness again November 19th 1996. 1 + 9 + 1 + 1 + 9 + 6 = 10/ (1 + 0 =) 1. I had reached adulthood, having lived 31 years within this physical temple (body). 3 + 1 = 4. 4 is the number of stability, foundation, the four directions etc. and is associated with Earth, thus both my body and Earth were now ready for this High Frequency vibration of Love and Light to descend.
1 is the number of new beginnings, leadership, purity and oneness, and it is associated with the Sun. As a 1, I bring something new that has not been here before, namely this particular HF level of Cosmic Consciousness. As a Leo, the Sun is my ruling planet, and the lion (mentioned earlier as depicted on our family crest) is one of my animal symbols. 10 is the number of completion, the “male” 1 united with the “female” 0. As 4 + 6 it is a symbol of matter (4) in harmony (6). It represents the Creator and the creation (3 + 7), the Trinity resting in the expressed universe. And as the sum of 5 + 5, the number 10 represents the two opposite current directions of the conscience: involution and evolution, visually expressed by an upward-facing and an inverted pentagram. For Pythagoras, 10 was the symbol of the universe and it also expressed the whole of human knowledge. (More about 10 here.)
Leaving numerology for now, we will continue with the book:
“On the Sunday afternoon of the day I was born, they were down the road visiting Latvian friends, watching Julie Andrews star in “The Sound of Music” until Mom’s contractions were so frequent that they knew it was time. She struggled home and up the stairs, and gave birth in her own bed, watching it take place via a mirror opposite her. The midwife who assisted her was a lovely young West Indian woman, and the birth went smoothly and without any complications. I’m glad that I when I came to Earth I was first touched by those warm dark hands, and practically born to the sound of music. It truly was a soft landing.”
Here we again see the symbol of the Sun and my association with it by being born on a Sun-day. The interesting symbolism of Latvia is that beside Latvian, there is the nearly extinct Livonian language (of the Finnic branch of the Uralic language family), which is protected by law as there may be at best only 10 living native speakers of the language left. When we piece this information together with “the sound of music”, the connection is that the language of harmonic resonance (music) has also nearly been forgotten and become extinct. Fortunately, this is changing due to new interest in the field, and growing awareness of the Solfeggio Frequencies, Cymatics (the study of visible sound and vibration), Dr. Masaru Emoto’s research on the effect of “words of intent” on water and other related “languages of vibration”.
But there is more. I chose to add a link to the movie The Sound of Music because of its symbolism as well. Julie Andrews plays Maria (you already have plenty of associations with this name), a postulant in training to become a nun (female servant of God), who takes on the role of governess for Captain von Trapp’s seven children. 7 is a mystical number, associated with the seven colours in the rainbow, the seven days of the week, the seven candles of the menorah, the seven virtues and sins, the seven basic chakras and so on, but most clearly in this context, it is the number of notes in a diatonic scale (seven note musical scale). This is even repeated in the von Trapp name, where Trapp can mean a ladder or scale. (The ladder is mentioned later in my book since it is depicted on my Sacred Ascension Stone.) In any case, Maria teaches the children to sing, by introducing them to the basic notes of Do-Re-Mi etc., thus bringing happiness back into their lives after the loss of their mother and missing the affection of their disciplinary father. The connection I make to my own life with this movie, is that I too wish for us to return back to basics, and rediscover the joy of music and singing, and living in (musical/vibrational) harmony with one another. A fitting song for how I feel is:
“I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony; I’d like to hold it in my arms and keep it company.”
Although the song often is associated with a commercial for a certain product, it also portrays a positive message of hope and love sung by a multicultural collection of teenagers on the top of a hill. A beautiful scene indeed. The “Sound of Music’s” backdrop is the increasing Nazi regime, forcing the von Trapp family to flee to safety in Switzerland. The symbolism of this needs no further interpretation, as the right to live in freedom unfortunately still isn’t a reality for all in our times… yet.
Moving on to the symbol of the mirror in which my mother can watch the birth taking place, the mirroring has several interesting meanings. One is that my mother can see what is happening while it is happening, in stead of not at all or later via a video camera. Seeing something when it occurs in the Now indicates awareness and focused attention. The mirror also acts as a duplicator, doubling the scene so that it can be viewed in two places at once; in the actual bed and in the reflection of the mirror. And so she is giving birth to two identities, the one who will named Linda Brit, physically born 08.08. and the one who later will be known as Miranda*, spiritually born 11.11. (2000) at 11:11. One of the meanings of the name Miranda* is precisely ‘mirror’, and again we also see the double numbers of the dates, “upgraded” to 11.
11 is a Master number. (Refer again to Second Birth 11.11.2000 for more.) A mirror is also used as a symbol for truth. We know from the fairy tale of Snow White that the Queen’s mirror when asked: “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?” always spoke the truth.
The West Indian midwife is highly important symbolically as well. She acts as a representative for the Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists (and other religions in the East) who await the coming Krishna, Imam Mahdi and Maitreya Buddha, respectively. MI in Miranda* is the prefix of my name Maitreya in Japanese: “Miroku”; in Chinese: “Mi-Lo-Fwo” and in Korean: “Mireuk”. Maitreya means “Loving Kindness” or “Universal Love”, and is the equivalent of the HF Love and Light energy that descended into my body in 1996. As I write in the book, I love that I was welcomed to Earth and touched first by her warm dark hands. And finally, in this paragraph, the last sentence with the words “soft landing”, is meant to show my arrival as a cosmic traveller, landing on Earth, and so distinguish it from a “regular” birth.
Next in the book comes the first poem:
I come from beyond the rainbow
Past Mercury, Venus and Mars
Beyond your nearest galaxy
And on to distant stars
The journey here is a long one
Through a black hole for nine moons
Then a glittering star emerges
When heaven and earth are attuned
Look in my eyes and you’ll see
They’re different; how can this be?
Pools of dark and bright lit stars
Are all reflected in me
I’ve come because I promised
So many years ago
Yet even you won’t know me
Until it is time to know
For now I’ll be your daughter
We’ll love each other by gene
And then one day I’m another
Sent to all who wish to be seen
This should not need further interpretation. Skipping the few paragraphs regarding the death of my sister (before my birth), my out-of-body travels while I was sick with the disease that had caused her her death, and the joyful birth of my brother, I’ll move quickly on.
We remember that it was Spirit’s intention to let English be my native language and my incarnation country to indicate neutrality. Yet in order not to become too attached to any one country, it was essential that I move around in the world, learn different languages and experience other cultures. Not yet turned three, I needed to establish the English language for a few more years, and so my father was guided by Spirit to move our family to the United States of America, a melting pot of multi-cultural natives and immigrants. The Americas were originally united as one land and known as “Amaruca”, which means “Land of the Plumed Serpent” and the name Amaru is a reference to the deity Huiracocha/Quetzalcoatl/Kukulkan to which all the land belonged. It was in front of Amaru Meru’s temple, Hayu Marka (Gate of the Gods), that my Sacred Ascension Stone manifested for me as a gift from the Gods and physical proof showing that I am who I say I am.
Amaru Meru is the same deity as the Akkadian deity Amurru, son of the sky-god Anu. The name of Zoroastrian deity, Mithra, originates in the Indo-European root “Mihr”, and is etymologically related to Meru, Mary and Miranda*. The ancient name for Egypt was To-Mera, and the written name for the Great Pyramid was M’R, the root for Meru, Myrrh, Mihr and Mithra. There is evidence that Amurru was also the real god of Abraham, replaced along the way by the Jewish god YHWH, who descended into Christianity and Islam. In any case, the god Meru was a central figure in the religious beliefs of the Americas, Egypt, ancient Sumer and India.
Minnesota is known as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes“, (here we see a reference to an abundance of water again), and the state motto is: “The star of the North”, which is associated with the Pole star, the star by which sailing travellers are guided and find their way. My book’s title is “Star*Avatar”, the first chapter in my book is called “Birth of a Star”, my name Miranda* is spelt with a star etc. The Star is the single most important symbol throughout my book, and it represents my Christ Star (the updated, higher version of the Star of David) and Spirit. And so, what better state to move to than Minnesota?
The following paragraph in the book is as follows:
“During my first flight in this lifetime, with BOAC from London to New York, I was so excited to actually be flying in the air that I was permitted by the friendly air hostesses to see the cockpit and meet the pilots. Soaring across the open blue sky was exhilarating. I absolutely loved it. And when they gave me an airplane pin and a flight logbook for keeps, I think I decided on my future profession then and there.”
Firstly, I love to fly because I am used to interdimensional travelling when not physically incarnated. I recount several of my UFO flights, both as passenger and as pilot, in my book. And so, my exhilaration was not only because of the wonderful sensation of weightlessness, but because it was my first true recognition of something that wasn’t “of this Earth”, so to speak.
And now, I have a playful experiment for you: Consider you are the Awaited One (to put it in simple terms) and you are choosing your future profession. Which profession would you choose and why? Think about it for a minute or two. Which qualifications would you need? You should preferably be able to speak several languages. You should be able to interact well with people from all walks of life and all classes of society, treating everyone with the same respect and warmth. And you should be “calm in the midst of chaos”, never letting negativity affect you. You should be able to speak to large groups of people. And considering that the world is a home for billions of people, how could you quickly reach as many as possible? The answer is that there is no profession more suited for this than that of a flight attendant!
Remembering that we are energy/Spirit in physical form, consider the vast amount of people I intermingled with in the 14 years I worked for S.A.S. / Scandinavian Airlines; not only the thousands of passengers on board, but all who were within my energy field in airports, cities and various kinds of public transportation all around the world. Can you see the intelligence of Spirit’s purpose for my profession? My job was to give and be of service, and there is no higher calling. I welcomed everyone on board equally, with the same genuine smile, made announcements in several languages standing in front of all seated along the plane, and often used humour when communicating with passengers and co-workers during the flight. I was trained to handle emergencies, “be calm in the midst of chaos” and comfort and assist our passengers. Isn’t this the perfect background profession for my imminent public role?
When we add to the equation that my mother was a teacher and my father a pastor, as a combination of the two I become a spiritual teacher. I have studied astrology since I was 13 and attended a three-year school (passing written and oral exams and receiving my diploma) and esoteric psycho-therapy (energetic training for 4 years, resulting in two diplomas.) I have studied and taught many other symbolic languages, such as the Tarot, runes, dream interpretation, the Kabbalah, numerology etc., all of which are valuable tools for developing intuition and leading to Self- or God-realization.
“Upon arrival at J.F.K. airport we were held up at Customs, where the officials wanted to check through every single suitcase and bag my parents had with them. Dad was busy opening suitcases and dealing with the officials, and Mom was holding Paul. I stood beside them, but when for one moment they weren’t looking, I wandered off, fascinated with the busy energy and different people and new sights all around me. I walked over to where I could watch the planes take off and land in the distance and was completely absorbed, not at all aware of the panic and confusion I had caused my parents who couldn’t find me.
This was the first of several times in my early childhood that I would wander off on my own, each time causing a great deal of fear and commotion, whereas I myself had no idea of this and felt completely safe and protected. Another time was when we visited Leeds again when I was five. We had just arrived at the Church House, where a lot of our earlier parishioners had come to see us, and in the commotion of greetings and hugs I simply walked out of the door unnoticed. It didn’t take me many moments to reach the nearest intersecting street, and there I turned left and went down a hill into a Pakistani and Indian district. My disappearance was soon discovered, of course, and everyone was greatly alarmed. The police was contacted immediately and given a description of me, and after what must surely have been some harrowing minutes for my parents as well as for everyone else, I was brought back in a police car by two friendly police officers. I was beaming and pleased with my adventure and could not understand why Mom started crying as soon as she saw me, and then hugged me so hard that I could scarcely breathe.”
These lines about my frequent disappearances indicate my leonine “fearlessness” in the midst of unknown surroundings, and show that, in stead of feeling insecure and staying close to my family, I feel completely safe to wander freely at will. Also, if you thought the reference to the Eastern religions through the symbol of the West Indian midwife was a bit “stretched”, you see it repeated again here. It was as if I (as soul) couldn’t wait to make my presence known to those who are awaiting Maitreya. Yet I would have to do just that for many years.
Skipping a paragraph, I’ll continue with:
“When my Dad was busy working on a sermon or other church-related matters in his study and I wasn’t supposed to disturb him, I would go over his head, so to speak, and talk to my other Father, my Father in Heaven. I never prayed to Jesus even though I felt very close to him; perhaps because I already felt so close to him. He was as close as my own heartbeat. Instead I went directly to God Himself because I figured “Father knows best”. I would have long conversations with God all the time, not only after a scolding in order to seek consolation, but also on happier occasions, simply because I enjoyed talking with Him.”
Here the main point is that Jesus is as close to me as my own heartbeat. In other words, although I did not yet know I myself was Jesus reincarnated; it simply never felt natural for me to pray to him, even though others around me did. But then how could it be natural to pray to oneself? Yet my connection with my Father in Heaven was as strong as ever.
The chapter continues with my childhood interests, for instance reading fairy tales, legends and anything about magical and divine powers.
“At home I borrowed Mom’s copy of Bulfinch’s Mythology, The Age of Fable, and I’d lie in bed and read all about Greek gods and goddesses until I fell asleep with the big book on my chest. I loved how the gods and goddesses mingled with mortals, and the way nothing was by chance, but always in accordance with fate or the will of the gods. Heroes and heroines became constellations in the stars, and this stirred deep memories inside me, memories not yet ready to be remembered.”
This served as early training in archetypal and collective themes, ethics, cause and effect / karma (or reward and punishment by the gods), the concept of a Higher Plan (destiny / the will of the gods) and the inter-relatedness of humans with divine, cosmic beings.
“Because our town was so small, everybody knew everybody, and we kids would all play together regardless of age differences. It served to work out perfectly, because the older kids would take care of the younger ones. We were one big bunch, hanging out together. Our house was right next to a huge cornfield, owned by a friendly neighbour who often gave us corn for free, and then Mom would make corn on the cob for supper. It was my favourite thing to eat. He let all us children use his tool shed as our club house, and we’d play hide and seek among the tall cornstalks towering high above our heads, trying to keep perfectly quiet when we heard the sound of footsteps of someone approaching, so as not to be found.”
The oldest children taking care of the youngest, is an ideal solution that hinders any kind of bullying or excluding. It is similar to the “buddy system”, except it isn’t limited to a one-on-one relationship.
Corn is a symbol for abundance and according to Pocahontas it is “gold”, because it is food and thereby valuable for sustaining life, whereas monetary gold can’t be eaten. Corn is also a symbol for resurrection. “The death of the grain and the death of the god were one and the same: the cereal is identified with the god who came from heaven; he is the bread by which man lives. The resurrection of the god symbolized the rebirth of the grain.” The resurrection theme is repeated in our game of hide and seek, in which we are “dead” while hidden and “reborn” when found again.
This image shows Osiris with wheat growing from his body. The sprouting corn implies resurrection.
The book continues:
“Because of a variety of activities arranged by the church, there was a great sense of fellowship and unity in our community. Nearly the entire town would happily attend the sharing of pot-luck dinners, outings, theme evenings or performances and other events. Again, we kids would run around and have fun together while seeing our parents and neighbours enjoying themselves, laughing and joking and simply being the best examples of adult role models one could ever want. It made us feel loved and safe, and sowed a seed of trust in us that the world was a good place to live in.
At one “Mother-daughter Banquet” at Vang Church, Mom and I were there together with a great number of other mothers and their daughters. I was supposed to sit next to my mother, but I asked if I might sit with my friend Margaret instead, and was given permission to do so. When everyone had sat down, a woman from the congregation addressed us all, welcoming us to the potluck dinner and giving other information. Then she said that there was a special surprise for one of us. Underneath one of the dinner plates in front of us, there was a flower sticker attached to it. Whoever had this under their plate could come up and receive a prize. I looked under my plate and there it was; a sticker with a beautiful red rose.
“I found it!” I said happily, holding up the plate.
The women sitting near by confirmed it, saying “Yes, honey. You certainly did. Go on, and get your prize.”
So I went up to the front with all eyes on me and accepted the wrapped parcel from the woman, thanking her and adding:
“I just knew it was for me”.
Everybody laughed, but in a friendly way. I was often given small gifts or tokens of appreciation from people in the congregation whom I didn’t even know, simply because I was the pastor’s daughter. So I wasn’t surprised that there was a little something for me this evening as well, but it did feel great to have won it, seemingly by total coincidence, among so many other people.
Back in my seat I opened the parcel and uncovered a bronze cowbell, the kind the lead cow wears when leading the herd to their destination. I was too young to appreciate the symbolism of me receiving that cowbell at the age of nine, but loved it immediately for its shiny bronze colour and the beautiful musical tone it gave off when I rang it.”
Here are several interesting points to observe more closely. Unity and fellowship is emphasized again. Out of a large number of people and “seemingly by total coincidence” I win the evening’s prize. It is a parallel to how I, among billions of people, and “seemingly by total coincidence” am the Awaited One. Someone has to be the Anchor for Spirit / Source. That is the way it has always been done so that Spirit may be experienced Heart-to-Heart and not become theoretical concepts within Mind. (And I’m showing in as many ways I can manage how and why I am this one.) The flower turns out to be a red rose. The rose is a sacred symbol found throughout a number of religions and other contexts. It is a symbol for both Jesus Christ, Mary and Mary Magdalene, and it represents Divine or True Love.
The rose is sacred to the Goddess. In ancient India, the Great Mother was the Holy Rose. In Asia, the flower of the Goddess is the red China rose. The rose is the flower of Venus/Aphrodite, Isis and many other goddesses. Roses are symbols of the sacred vulva of the Goddess. The vulva is the gateway through which life is born, and when man lovingly unites with woman, he receives direct access to the Power of the Goddess. The rose also represents beauty and joy. When you tune in to my Self, you may often notice the fragrance of roses (or jasmine).
The way I receive my gift/prize is precisely with great joy, and my confident manner does not indicate that I am spoiled. It means that I am able to receive. Many people struggle with this, and are much better at giving than receiving. The giver is the one “in control” in a mode of action (male energy), whereas the receiver then must “submit” to a mode of reaction/response (female energy). Often the receiver then feels uncomfortable and immediately tries to either resist or give back, thus ruining the flow of giving and receiving. It is an art to know how to receive with grace.
The symbol of the bronze cowbell is explained by its purpose. It is what the lead cow wears when leading the herd to their destination. Giving off a musical tone that can be heard by all, it symbolizes my frequency tone (of Love and Harmony) that is the Cosmic Christ/Buddha Consciousness, which people everywhere are hearing inwardly. True change can only happen from within. The outward way is expressive and male, whereas the inward way is intuitive and female; explaining why I am here in female HUman form. My bell acts like a tuning fork, and all who are open and ready for this tone, begin to resonate with it. It is the “blowing of the trumpet”, of the impending day of the Lord/ Lady, causing the Great Awakening. And so, both the symbol of the rose, as Goddess (divine female) and the symbol of the cowbell for the lead cow (the one who shows the way), point to my identity and role.
I wish to add one more precious jewel in this context, related to a musical frequency tone, and that is the toning or singing of the ancient name for God/Spirit, HU. It is the purest form of prayer, in that it doesn’t direct God/Spirit or ask for anything, but is simply sung as a Love Song to God. HU opens the heart, aligns all chakras and has uplifting and healing effects. I write extensively about HU in my book, and have devoted an entire chapter to it, called “The Magic of HU.” As HUmans, we are divine beings, united in HU. (See The Power of Chant and then The HU Song.)
Continuing with the book:
“Another event that made an impression on me was when I was playing with a friend of mine in her house next door and there was a sudden tornado warning over the radio. My friend’s parents had relatives visiting them at the time, and we all hurried downstairs into the basement. The danger of the tornado was so imminent that they wouldn’t even allow me to cross the street and go home. My friend and I sat with clothes baskets over our heads for protection in case the house would come crashing down upon us. The strange thing is that I remember I wasn’t afraid. On the contrary, I thought the whole situation was exciting, like an adventure. This was probably more due to the adults’ ability to remain calm and collected for the sake of us children, than my own inner knowing that this wasn’t my time to go. But, then again, maybe it was the other way around. Needless to say, the tornado passed by our little town, ripping the tall stalks in the cornfields to shreds but fortunately not doing much more damage than that.”
The not-so-obvious symbolism here is that of going down into the basement. In symbology, the basement represents our own inner depths, the dark areas many people choose not to see. It represents our sub-consciousness, where we can be victims of fear, uncertainty, the unknown and hidden, secrets, powerful or overwhelming feelings and desires and so forth. It is Pluto’s domain, the frightening underworld of Hades. As such, my entering this world is a meeting with powerful Plutonic forces, and clearly early training in literally “remaining calm in the midst of a storm.”
“During those happy childhood years my family and I took two long road trips around the Western states in 1973 and 1974, visiting many sacred sites and Indian reserva-tions as well as beautiful national parks such as Yellowstone Park, Rocky Mountains and the Redwood Forest. As we were leaving the campsite in Yellowstone early one morning, we suddenly caught up with a long line of cars and campers that had stopped. It turned out that the reason for this were three grizzly bears just beside the road, and people were looking at them and of course photographing eagerly. Mom, Paul and I got out of the car to observe the bears from a distance. Unafraid, I walked so close to one of them that I could look it in the eyes. And when the eyes of the bear met mine, I felt us connect deeply on some telepathic level. It was as if we shared an intimate bond and we instantly recognized and knew each other. The moment seemed to last much longer than it did. I’ll never forget it.”
Here we see that my parents were guided by Spirit to allow me (and all of us, of course) visits to sacred sites, which I will address later. The symbolism of three grizzly bears ought to ring a bell. Remember the story of Goldilocks and the three bears? Many years after this meeting, I enacted the scene in a “rectified” version together with my children and our neighbour’s daughter. Here is the book except:
“I went into the kitchen to make us some oatmeal porridge for breakfast. I had just set the table and was about to call the children when the doorbell rang. It was Nanna, the girl next door, come to play with Helene. I told Helene that breakfast was ready and that Nanna could wait for her in her room, but she asked if Nanna could please join us.
“But I’ve already divided the porridge into three bowls”, I explained.
“She can eat from my bowl”, Helene replied sweetly.
“All right; if it’s okay with Nanna.”
And so we pulled up a chair for her, Helene gave her a spoon, and they shared Helene’s porridge from the same bowl. Another insignificant episode perhaps, but every event was teaching me something. There was a deeper symbolic meaning to them whenever I looked more closely. This incident was just like the fairytale of Goldilocks and the three bears. Our street address was Bears’ Terrace 3, so Helene, Alexander and I represented the three bears whereas blond-haired Nanna was Goldilocks. The only difference was that in the fairytale the bears frightened Goldilocks so she ran away, whereas we had invited her in. We replaced rejection and fear with sharing and trust.”
The meeting I had with the bear on a telepathic level was my first interspecies recognition. We had two cats that I loved dearly, and being naturally fond of animals, I was often around others as well, but this was my first lesson in “animal whispering”, the art of silent communication with animals. I can now “whisper” with all kinds of animals, even ants! (I will share a wonderful ant-connecting experience with you another time.)
Symbolically, a bear represents strength, wisdom and intuition. Bears hibernate in the cold months, allowing them access to the unconscious in order to blend intuition and instinct leading to attaining personal power. Bear helps people recognize personal truth and when to stand up for rights and when to walk away. The Celtic people had two goddesses who shapeshifted into a bear, Andarta and Artio, names derived from “Art,” the Celtic word for bear. The male counterpart of Bear is associated with King Arthur, mentioned earlier.
“We spent the nights at camping sites as we headed west, and I loved lying outside the tent as long as my parents would let me, so I could gaze up at the stars and search out the constellations I had learned about in my books. I would seek out the Big and Little Dippers, the seven sisters of the Pleiades, Orion, Cassiopeia, Sirius and others. I was also particularly attracted to Venus, since she was the Goddess of Love. Her star and planet shone so brightly and sweetly that I usually picked her as my wishing star.”
Here the first not-so-apparent message is that my inner world, reading about stars and constellations, was now manifesting in my outer world, as I was now gazing at the stars and could connect with them on a deeper level. As a Pleiadian/Venusian, it is no wonder I was particularly fond of Venus. As Jesus reincarnated, I am “the bright morning star”, and as Quetzalcoatl I am “the lord/lady of the star of the dawn”, just as Pleiadians are the “bringers of the dawn”. I am Venus astrologically through her placement in my horoscopes. (08.08 horoscope: Venus conjunct Uranus and Pluto, opposite Saturn conjunct Chiron, sextile Neptune. 11.11. horoscope: Venus conjunct Galactic Centre.) And most importantly, I am Venus/Aphrodite literally by living as Love embodied in female HUman form. My book illustrates this in a number of ways, for instance in the manner I shed my mermaid tail (having used the mermaid symbolism repeatedly throughout the book) and in an instant am transformed into Venus, my new legs walking shakily on the floor that to me felt like water.
Another example of my Venus/Aphrodite identity is the way I act as a catalyst for men to find their “true love” / life partner almost immediately after their relationship with me is over. This has happened too many times for it to be coincidental. Another related example is that I have yet to find my own “true love” / life partner as no man I have been with so far has been “my equal” in the area of love. I have had wonderful partners, and there was nothing “wrong” with them. I simply mean that the HF level of Love I embody is rare, and men can perhaps confuse unconditional love and the ability to forgive with submissiveness and weakness. They may see this as me not loving myself enough to set boundaries. The irony is that it is precisely because I am able to love myself fully that I can go beyond conventional concepts of boundaries and simply BE Love. I still have standards and know “when to stand up for myself and when to walk away” (to use the attributes of the bear), but the quality of my love is divine and thus unusual and perhaps frightening for some. And so I am the eternal Virgin, free to love who I wish. Until perhaps one day a man knowing no fear manages to capture my heart and hold on to it…
The book continues.
“We often visited Indian reservations, where we would meet Native Americans in their gift shops full of handmade colourful beaded jewellery and belts, feathers, pipes, arrow-heads, smudges, drums, dreamcatchers and more. It felt wonderful to be surrounded on all sides by those beautiful and magical items. And outside we could even hunt for arrowheads ourselves in the rivers running through the reservations. I loved being there. The atmosphere made me feel completely at home and at peace, and these were my favourite stops on our journeys. I didn’t know it at the time, and neither did my parents, but it was very important that they enabled me to visit those sacred sites. The energies I carried in my young physical body were mutually interchanged with the energies of the people we met and the places we visited. My body’s energy mingled with the energies of its surroundings and the Earth itself, continuously transmitting and receiving with a natural sensitivity.”
This explains the reason for our visits to the sacred sites. Having lived in Amaruca in Lemurian times, I was “picking up” ancient information held there, once again storing it in my body on a cellular level, and leaving traces of my own energies behind. The theme of connecting on a deeper level, such as with the bear and the Earth, is repeated with an encounter I then have with a Native American Indian who I feel I recognize from somewhere, although I know we have only just met. This relates to reincarnation and the meeting / recognition of people one has been with before.
Skipping this incident (since it is quite long), I continue with the following:
“Living so far from our relatives in Norway and Hungary, we didn’t see them very often back then. My friends all had grandparents and other family close by, but I did not. At one point I was convinced that I wasn’t even biologically my parents’ child, but that I had been adopted. For some reason they just wouldn’t tell me so, I believed. However, this changed when we travelled to Europe in 1970 and visited the home countries of both of my parents. In Norway we stayed with my grandparents, Noomi and Ole Severin, and we celebrated Paul’s third birthday there. Mom’s four sisters came with their husbands and children, my uncles and cousins. Then there were my mom’s aunts and uncles, and their families, until there were so many people around that I asked: “Mom, are all these people my relatives?” And when she confirmed it, I beamed delightedly. I felt like I had been given the greatest gift in the world! I couldn’t speak their language, but I watched and listened as best I could.”
The feeling of being adopted is quite common among Star Beings, who feel different from the other members of their family. Intuitively, we know we don’t belong to Earth, but this is usually suppressed until later in life. I won’t go into the numerology of 1970, the meaning of my grandparents’ names, the symbolism of five daughters etc., but simply say that my delight in suddenly discovering all these “new” relatives can be likened to the current relationships we are forming, now that we recognize one another as SiStars and BroStars. “Mitakuye Oyasin” is a Lakota Sioux term meaning “We are all related.” These words include not only human family, but all of the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms as well as the forces of nature (wind, thunder, lightening, etc.) plus the elements, in that we are all connected in the intricate web of existence, and that each is affected by actions of any other. Everything is interrelated; nothing exists in isolation.
“In Hungary it was pretty much the same. My dad’s father, Adam, had died before I was born, but we usually stayed with my grandmother, Terezia, and my dad’s sister, my aunt Piroska. I was surrounded by foreign words and sounds, and once when my parents went off to visit some other relatives, Paul and I were left in the care of people we couldn’t communicate with. I would later come to see this as early training in reading body language, and interpreting the meaning behind verbal communication from others that I couldn’t understand, by feeling their energies within myself.”
Hungary is the only country in the world that begins with the letters HU, and this is also the country’s letter code. Earth’s (3rd dimensional) heart chakra is located in Dobógókö (meaning “pulsating rock”) near Budapest, and when one puts one’s ear to the ground one can hear Mother Earth’s heartbeat. Adam was mentioned earlier “in the beginning” of this article, and no further interpretation is necessary. I will only add that my grandfather Adam, was the son of Jakob, son of Jozsef. My great-grandmother was Eva.
“For me, one last important event took place before we moved to Europe. My father had asked me to recite Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem “If” at our farewell Service at Vang. He promised me a quarter for each verse, so with four verses I would earn a dollar. I didn’t do it for the money, but because he asked me to. Diligently I memorized the words until I knew them by heart, and then recited them in front of the entire congregation, alone in front of the Christ statue at the altar.”
(Vang Church, 1974) The altar shows the Christ statue, beautifully made by Danish sculptor Bernt Thorvaldsen. Observe that I am in front of “The Risen Christ” and that (Jesus) Christ’s face is not on the picture. The cross between us indicates my soul’s journey from that of being known as Jesus (the inanimate statue), through death (the cross) to an ascended state, and then to becoming Linda Brit / Maitreya Miranda* (alive, in front), the Feminine Christ today.
The poem my father chose is highly interesting to note as well. It was one of Spirit’s intelligent ways of teaching me the contents of the poem as training for my future role. And it ends with “you’ll be a Man, my son!”. How much more is needed to see my male/female identity?
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build ‘em up with worn-out tools;
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man my son!
This concludes the book’s first chapter. As such, its contents are related to the number 1. We can see how the keywords of 1 have been this chapter’s themes: New beginnings, leadership, purity and oneness. Even now, with all we have “deciphered”, there is still far more we could have unveiled, should we have wanted to. For instance the year we moved to USA, 1968. 1 + 9 + 6 + 8 = 24 (2 +4) = 6. 6 is related to Jupiter, and USA is a Jupiter country. And so on, and so on. There are layers upon layers within the words and numbers, for those who not only look, but see.
There is one final sign I’d like to share with you, because it is a visual “message”, located on the back of the book’s cover. Do you see it?
Love and Light in Oneness,

Riddle answer: The message on the back of the book I’m referring to lies with the two capital letters “I” and “M”. Together they become: I (A)M.
