Download Magical Gaia Vibes: Der Masterplan der Erde für die Menschen by Margarita Arminger PDF

By Margarita Arminger

„Macht euch die Erde untertan!“ hieß zweitausend Jahre lang das wohl missverstandenste göttliche Losungswort der Menschheit. Zurück blieb ein Trümmerhaufen. Eine zutiefst verletzte Erde und verletzte Menschen, die alles Natürliche mit Füßen treten.
Schuld daran ist ein bis heute unbekannter Knick in der Evolution, der überall dort passiert, wo Natur und Kultur nicht harmonisch ineinander übergehen. Er schafft jenes verletzte innere style, das nie erwachsen wird und uns alle als halbe Menschen zurück lässt.
Dabei gäbe es eine Lösung: den Meisterplan der Erde für ihre „Erdlinge“, der unser Leben von heute auf morgen verändern könnte. Nach ihm wartet nicht nur das Okay-Sein des Körpers als Gesundheit auf uns. Nicht nur das Happy-Sein toller Gefühle und geniale Gedanken. Uns steht auch jener Magnetismus zu, der die größtmöglichen Erfolge anzieht.
Darum ist es heute höchst an der Zeit, das wahrscheinlich größte und eigentliche Rätsel der Menschheit lösen: Nicht nur Gaias Schöpfungsstrategie für uns selbst, sondern auch den alles beflügelnden Lebendigkeitsfaktor, der das „Oben“ nur so intestine wie das „Unten“ sein lässt.
Dass dieser so simpel anmutende Spruch ganz zufällig auch das wohl berühmteste Gesetz der Hohen Magie ist, braucht nicht zu verwundern. Schon immer arbeiteten die Magier und die Weisen mit der Erde zusammen. So wie diese mit den Menschen zusammen zu arbeiten beginnt, sobald diese sich als Gehirn des Planeten begreifen.
Genau an diesem Schnittpunkt stehen wir heute. Zunehmend mehr von uns entdecken, dass auch in Sachen Gaia ein guter Egoismus angebracht ist. Jedes kleinstes Stück mehr an wahrer Lebendigkeit für uns, ist ein Stück mehr an Lebendigkeit für Mütterchen Erde. Nur gemeinsam erschaffen wir jene wirklich schöne neue Welt, welche wir uns erträumen. Das ist das neue occur für eine neue Erde!
Dazu jedoch brauchen wir den Lebendigkeitsfaktor. Er herrscht nicht, macht nicht untertan, teilt nicht ein in intestine und Böse. Nach eigenem Belieben können wir auf den Stufen der Lebendigkeit auf und abgleiten. Gaias Magie selbst, Gaia-vibrations sind es, die uns sagen, wie wir am schnellsten die neuen Ufer erreichen. Das Losungswort dabei kann nur heißen: Leben mit der Erde!
