"Anneloes Smitsman has written a beautiful invocation to find joy on earth. Imbued with love, hope, and faith, the writing is full of compassion as it honours Nature and all its precious beings on earth, in particular men and women (and all gender in between). It is an inspiring text that gives one a sense of being in the world and also beyond the world simultaneously as it delves into the realms of the real, the metaphoric, the poetic, and the mystical. It gives one a sense of becoming one with the Earth and beyond. As I have always been enchanted with the notion of the Akashic records wherein exists four interconnected states of knowing and being called, Holographic Unity, Harmonic Memory, Synchronic Order and the Imaginal Realm, I was immediately drawn to Smitsman's capacity to bring these existential realms to conscious and unconscious knowing through her letters. As each Love Letter from Mother Earth brings forth a particular consciousness, it invites us to delve deeply into their meaning to receive a full understanding of our existence as being whole, unified, harmonic, synchronic and, yes, imaginal. The words of Elie Wiesel jump out at me for we must look to meaning and purpose. Yet, what cannot be drawn from a darkness that lies outside our ability to describe, define, or understand it, we must seek instead for a way to say, "Here there is a why." To be cut off from seeking our purpose and raison d'être is a travesty. It is for this reason we can and must seek why as we continue to venture into deeper understandings of love. To come to know the fullness of love takes living life fully and pausing at each step to reflect on its depth and vastness. Each step of the way requires a constant opening, for any shutting down leaves us gasping for air. Anneloes Smitsman's Letters from Mother Earth present us with yet another opening for inquiry and introspection." ~ Anne-Marie LaMonde (Ph.D), Adjunct Professor - Faculty of Education, University of British Columbia, Canada.
"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. The Love Letters serve as state attractors that provide individual inspiration for collective aspiration, showering light, water, air and fertile soil in delicious combinations and quantities for the garden of our individual and collective human being to come into full flourishing. How best can we learn to be Earth at the same time as we manifest cosmic consciousness at the same time as we are true to our own human nature? Mother Earth knows how, and through these Love Letters, you will gain a glimpse of how to safeguard and nurture your truest and highest potential as part of the grand narrative of cosmic emergence while avoiding the pitfalls of the more disconnected and egoic expressions of that potential. In The Wheel of Time (Carlos Castaneda's work of spiritual guidance gleaned from the teachings of the wisdom tradition in which he was immersed), messages were given for connecting to and working with the cycle of time defining our contemporary era. In Love Letters from Mother Earth, Anneloes Smitsman shares messages in the form of spiritual guidance from Mother Earth, herself. These messages are also messages of time. They stand to shift our contemporary zeitgeist from darkness and despair to love 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."

"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. She writes: "Love cannot be divided and fragmented. Knowing this, the power of Love had to be diminished by those who saw themselves as rulers of our world. The only way they could diminish the power of Love was by fragmenting and dividing us." Thus this enslavement arises from our shared hallucination of the "polarity" matrix, which is the lens through which we see the world, and which blinds us to the unity that lies behind the duality. And so we believe, unwittingly and unconsciously, that we live in a dualistic reality system, seemingly unable to access that Oneness from which all this reality arises. Anneloes Smitsman shows us a way through this delusion. And now we have reached an extreme point of bifurcation. The book explains that we are at the end of a major series of 16 cycles and it's "crunch time." If you want to know how to be prepared for this unique moment, and you should.... read this book, it will change your life!" ~ Lawrence Bloom (Ph.D.), Secretary General Be Earth Foundation - A UN Inter Governmental Organization, Chairman Dakia Institute, Chairman Be Energy, lawrencebloom.com/
"Love 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. As the evolved feminine consciousness awakens on the planet, Mother Earth speaks through Anneloes Smitsman with clarity and compassion, wisdom and sensuality to support us in remembering who we are and in shifting beyond a consciousness of hierarchy and polarity to one of greater wholeness. The book reminds us of the need to move beyond our sense of separateness and superiority on the planet, so that we can communicate in deeply honoring ways with consciousnesses beyond our own, and in so doing contribute to our collective healing and evolution. Empathy with Mother Earth and Her experience alongside our own, is indeed an essential starting point for moving beyond our limited pictures of ourselves, healing the trauma and devastation and reconnecting with the Source of all Life. Messaging the archetypal feminine in its primal form, the book, with each re-reading, will undoubtedly shapeshift to reveal new and fertile layers of insight and embodied wisdom." ~ Shelley Ostroff (Ph.D.) Founder, Together In Creation
"Anneloes Smitsman has written a singular and unifying document. Or perhaps she has channeled this work. I can't imagine how she did it! Not unlike my favorite music and poetry, this writing has deep intellect, spirituality, and sensuality. This is not a common fairytale. Ms. Smitsman requires the reader to rise up and pay attention to every word. She is deeply exploring levels of human existence and growth. This is a guidebook for sentient beings. A book we've hoped and wished might appear. It is conscious of the human condition. Breathing in, we attend to the depth of all that has come before us. Breathing out, we are prepared for what meets us today." ~ Erik Lawrence, Saxophonist, Flutist, Composer, Educator, Journalist, Poet, Sound Healer, Steering Committee Member: Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine, eriklawrencemusic.com/
From the Author
We are living in a time of increasing uncertainties and challenges. Many changes are taking place that are deeply affecting us and with consequences for many generations to come. Some people experience this as a breakthrough for a new kind of society. Others experience this as a breakdown of the very fabric of our communities. Regardless of how we view what is happening, the opportunities for us to awaken more deeply and unite for our conscious evolution are unprecedented.
These Letters came to me after I asked Mother Earth: What would you like us to know and realize as your children during these challenging times? By listening carefully and letting go of my ideas about these questions, a deeper intuitive knowing emerged. As I started to record what I felt guided to share, it became clear to me that each Letter is like a code that helps us see what is already within us. These Letters form a living map for navigating our inner and outer landscapes, restoring our wholeness and integration. The solutions for our healing are the same now as they were thousands of years ago. The root causes of our inner and outer divisions have not changed. Yet the cascading effects of these divisions require us to unite now more than ever, in collective responsibility and care.
Writing and birthing these Letters has been a deep process for me. Each Letter came with particular life experiences that prepared me to bring these messages forth. After finishing the 12th Letter, it took one year of integration before I was able to write the 13th Letter. I am grateful for the deep intelligence and wisdom that looks after us in ways that remain mostly unseen. This is not a book for mere reading. It is a book that reminds us that we are each authors of our story as children of eternity in a world of change and paradox.
With gratitude and Love,
