Reflections

Peacock Woman

Dada Chi Logo 2024 Blau Crop

I have had very strong emotions all my life. It wasn’t possible for me to rise above them, so I learned to separate myself from my feelings. Learned to no longer notice them, by focusing on the outside. I distracted myself with everything that came along, the main thing was not to dive into these

Ring Of Fire

Ring Of Fire Meditation Cover Tara

In shamanism as well as in trauma therapy, we often deal with the retrieval of parts of the soul or, expressed psychologically, we re-associate with the parts of ourselves to which we apparently lost contact on our way through life. An important part of this work is the stripping of old skin, i.e. the liberation

Enjoy The Silence Festival

Enjoy The Silence Festival Altar

I was booked to do a shamanic Reisa during the Opening Ceremony of this year’s Enjoy the Silence Festival.  We gathered on one of the beautiful hills surrounding lake Como and celebrated life and love to the pumping basslines of Psycore music for three days, and to me it felt like a proper healing ceremony,

Chi

Chi

Chi is another word for life energy, i.e. the force that breathes life into matter. This power appears to modern man as a miracle, and he tries everything to explain this miracle scientifically in some way. I find that a little amusing – because the ancient cultures knew exactly what the mystery of life force

Self-Confidence

Self-Confidence

What does self-confidence mean? Self-confidence means trusting myself. Trusting myself means being with myself and lovingly standing up for my own needs. Because when I do that, I can trust myself. Then I have good intentions towards myself. That doesn’t mean that I’m allowed to occupy or penetrate the space of others. But it is

The Colours of the Aura

The Colours of the Aura

I described how the aura is built up in my article “Connection of Self and Soul“. Today I would like to go into the colors of the aura. As you may know, you can buy an aura photograph at certain esoteric fairs. This art form absolutely has its merits; I just want to note that

Connection of Self and Soul

Connection Of Self And Soul

For many years I have meditated on what exactly the “soul”, the “self”, “spirit” and “mind” are. In my book “Being Human – A Travel Guide” I then, as a result of these inner studies, described the individual parts of the human aura as follows: The core is the physical body, the material anchor for

Handpoke Tattoo Rituals

Dada Chi Handpoke Tattoo Ritual

Handpoked tattoos are the origin of contemporary tattoo culture.  Contrary to the modern way of tattooing, a tattoo needle without machine power pierces through the first layer of skin and places the color pigments in the second layer of the skin, the socalled “leather skin”. This procedure varies from the regular tattooing technique as far

Learning to read Life

I have an extremely extensive collection of cards, which would probably make every witch heart beat faster. If you would like to delve deeper into working with cards, I can give you an insight into this world during a Chi Session – from classic tarot to light code tarots and shamanic potency tarots, reading power

What it’s good for

Von Sinn Und Nutzen

You don’t need a crystal.  You don’t need an essence.  You don’t need a coach.  It’s all inside of you. What you do need to progress is a clear intention, set into focussed action. And that’s were the first sentence of this thought excursion gets turned: Often times, I had all these thoughts inside of

Love Yourself

Love Yourself

“Love yourself”, they say. A single sentence that triggers so much in me. “I don’t want to be selfish. I don’t want to be arrogant. I don’t want to put myself above others.”  – These are all socially shaped concepts with which I do not want to identify. Then a realization: loving myself does not

Meditation

Meditation

Meditation does not describe a state of not thinking, but rather the state of having thought through to the end.  For a long time I thought I couldn’t meditate because my mind wandered to the future, to the past, mostly ignoring the now. Until I realized that I just needed to focus on this mind;

Jedi Mind Tricks

Jedi Mind Tricks

Isn’t it interesting that we humans can actually reprogram our conscious and subconscious mind? With every day more I see the neccessity of such a reprogramming – our minds have not been properly upgraded to function well in the modern age.  They mostly still operate on software from the stone age and hence need a

You Are Enough

You Are Enough

You are enoughjust the way you are – you don’t have to give me anythingyou don’t have to say anything,you don’t have to do anything…because I see you. And just the way I see youI accept you –evaluation creates separation,creates our downfall. So, only if you like,take your masksfrom your face –others might not like

The Teachings of Pain

The Teachings Of Pain

I wrote the following poem in 2015. It became an important guiding star of everything I create:  Never looking to take away the pain, but rather embracing it, absorbing it completely, until it transforms itself from the ashes of the burned past into a beautiful phoenix of newfound insight. Today, in my Chi Sessions, I accompany

Weeds

Weeds

Often I have to laugh heartily at human-shaped words – weeds is one of them. So a herb is not a herb, say a weed, only because it eludes human control. Because it does not do what we want, it becomes an absurdity. There are many things that have become preposterous because they are uncontrollable:

Perception

Perception

Perception. A word that we use very often without being aware of its meaning; it’s origin is the latin word percipere, which means “to receive, understand”. Nowadays we mostly use this word as a synonym for awareness. But awareness originates from old english “gewær”, which means to be aware of something. Hence there is a

Intention

Tyr - Intention

Isn’t it interesting how much our perception is subject to our focus? Like in a photograph, everything in the background blurs except the thing we focus on. Depending on what we hold in our focus, our reality feels very different. For example, if my focus is on all the things I do not have, but

Structures

Structures

On closer inspection, structures are omnipresent in our lives. We do not perceive them because they are invisible – they are the grid that holds creation, the manifested reality, together.  Everything in nature has a chemical signature, a code that defines its form in manifested reality. An embryo follows in its development exclusively the sequence

Demons

Barong

“Perhaps the terrible is basically the helpless that wants help from us.” Today I stumbled upon this quote from Rainer Maria Rilke, and it has caused a lot of Dadaistic thoughts in me. Not only that I fully agree with this statement, no, it also reminds me of a practice called Chöd, which was very
