Love Letters from Mother Earth takes us into the heart of our humanity to discover Our Story from a new perspective. Through these Letters, we receive the wisdom and support that our planet, as a caring and conscious Mother, shares for our collective flourishing. Together these thirteen Letters form a sacred design that is like a living map for the actualization of our wisdom potentials.
“Part prayer, part meditation, part medium transmitted message, part invocation, part direct transmission, part guidebook, part diary of love letters in the tradition of Rumi writing to and of his beloved – Love Letters is a reminder of our essential oneness with all that emerges together with us in this dance of life, love, consciousness and light…This is the alchemy needed to transmute the present stage of human being to the next level of our evolutionary potential. This is indeed a book for time to come.” ~ Alexander Laszlo (Ph.D.)
“Letters from Mother Earth” is an intimate and empathic inter-consciousness communication that gifts the reader with a multi-faceted portal into the vast meta-consciousness of Mother Earth and the “Heart of Light” our Sun, and their relationship with each other and with humans within the historic context of the larger evolutionary process. In this loving and challenging invitation to stretch beyond the limits of our current narratives are embedded sacred codes for our collective activation and healing.” ~ Shelley Ostroff (Ph.D.)
“Whether you’ve come to this planet to make a difference, or whether you’re lost and confused on how and why you got here, Anneloes Smitsman’s book is a must read. By structuring her narrative as 13 letters from our loving Mother the Earth and our father Sun she explores in depth the core reasons for how our dysfunctional and separated society arose. So this is no lightweight tome. The 3 keys to our salvation are explained in some detail, as well as the reason for our enslavement.” ~ Lawrence Bloom (Ph.D.)
“It is through our heart that we are restored to the wholeness that we are. When your presence centers in your heart, it informs your mind of all it needs to know. The power that is held inside us is the power through which the universe manifests itself. It is by this power that you heal yourself, that you restore yourself, and that you remember who we are.”
~ Anneloes Smitsman, Love Letters from Mother Earth
TALKS & INTERVIEWS
VECTORS OF LOVE™ ~ “Each of us can become a Vector of Love. You can start by asking these three fundamental questions:
- What do I reach from – what is my point of origin?
- How far can I reach inside and outside myself – what is the magnitude of my reach?
- What am I reaching for & to – what is the direction of my reach?
All of us are faced with the same choice when confronted by fear, pain and conflict – do we close down or open to our humanity? By reaching in and out from a place of Love for each other, building bridges and keeping our focus on what truly matters, we become the Vectors of Love by which we support our world through and out of this crisis. Thank you”. – Anneloes Smitsman, EARTHwise CEO & Founder, TEDx ALC 2016
