Welcome dear friends to our OM tonight.
It’s Wednesday, the 13 of December and I am happy to meet you here all again. Thank you for switching on again for I know we had already wonderful sessions with Tineke yesterday and Meabh’s on Monday. So I will make it short today and not so long as usual, and that we go more into contemplation.
Winter has arrived in Germany and we have masses of snow falling down, but it is melting away as quickly as it comes and new snow is falling. On Sunday we had a real break in of winter in an extremely way, it was a special day because we had put on our schedule the Christmas Celebration in a community hour with the friends. This is mostly the day, when really all friends are coming together and tuning in for this season on Christmas time and after the session sitting together with tea and cookies and talking comfortable together. For us it’s a tradition to do so and I always look forward to decorate the room with firs and Christmas stuffs – sometimes we even set up a Christmas tree and I always need hours to get it ready.
So I want to tell you now, what we have experienced on last Sunday the 10 of December 2017:
As usual we wanted to start our session at 5 pm in the afternoon on a Sunday, but at 2 pm it started to snow without stopping for a long time. The sky was full of snow, very grey and no sun was seen nor a blue hole in the clouds. Nothing, and it snowed and snowed and snowed…
Because here in our region in Germany (quiet in the middle) we had had no hard winters during the last years and nobody was really prepared of this…so many people started to think: how can I go to the community hour? It is dangerous driving a car and as we heard in the radio unfortunately no bus, no train was going anymore – and I will be honest as well, Peter and I we got the same way thoughts: Who will come to the community hour? Why doing the stress by decorating everything and sitting finally in an empty room? But as Bruno Gröning friends such thoughts are a NO GO – so Peter looked at me and I looked at him, and we thought together only one thought: NO WAY, of course we will doing the session, even when we are both sitting alone there and tuning in. We remembered at our sessions in Australia, when at one afternoon we had announced a Bruno Gröning community hour in a newspaper, starting from the beginning. And we had leased a big hall that evening. It was raining cats and dogs outside and we didn’t have known, that Aussies are not leaving house and home when the weathers are strange. So we thought the same: WHO WILL COME? Nobody?
NO WAY, there have come 2 wonderful human beings – just two - one couple, Ellie and Terry, and they absorbed the teaching of Bruno and the healing current, and Ellie received a wonderful healing that night from 35 years of insomnia, and a chain reaction was going out from that fateful night. Terry got many healings and today they are leading a wonderful community in Illawara and many helps and healings are happening there. That’s the calculation of God, as Bruno once said: from one seed the grain is growing, bringing 30 new seeds, and so on and on…a good harvest will be done after.
Those thoughts were going through our minds when we waited to start with the session last Sunday. We just went home for preparing the cookies and the tea, for our community room is not far from our place, just 300 meters down the street. We had decorated everything well, have cooked the tea and filled it into thermos bottles and I went back into the living room still wondering if all this work wouldn’t be for nothing.
Suddenly I stopped for a moment – and I saw in our living room a golden light glowing as if the sun would shine into the room. But outside it was still grey and snowing….no sun at all! It was really not describable, but it was like a feeling of wonderful warm sunbeams coming to me and as if someone said to me: You will be astonished…go and do the session…
And we did. And it was a wonderful session with huge golden waves of divine current. 11 friends have come and had pushed themselves through the snow and it was one of the best sessions we ever had - we felt really much much love. The love of God, and this is not comprehensive by the mind, but you can feel it: This golden vibration, which is warm and comfortable, smoothing and calming and gives you divine comforts. It was DIVINE!!! This is Christmas, dear friends, that is the Christmas force, the power when Christ is near.
I am still filled with this Divine Light and I want to share it with you, my dear friends.
And another picture he gave as Christmas gifts to the friends.
Let us hear now a wonderful, just a short song before we start with our presentation. Its from the famous Czech movie: Three nuts for Cinderella and here in Germany it is a must watch of this fairytale before Christmas or during Christmastime. Just 2 minutes of my favourite song and the splendid ride on a white horse through the snow. Enjoy….

So what’s about Christmas? As you know the little Jesus child was almost displaced by a big man with a red cloth and a long white beard: Santa Claus. But who is that man? Is it a historical person? Why and how did he become a symbol of materialism and consuming? So let us see on a little research I have made about this person. And maybe many of you know, that good old Santa was a real person in fact. But he was quite more different as this Coca Cola Man, where he later got his red coat. And he doesn’t live at the North Pole but he lived appr. 200 years after the birth of Christ in Turkey.
Yes, dear friends, as you see, he was a great wonderworker as well as Bruno Gröning. And it was certainly not meant by him so that his work in those days should degenerate into a single call for lavish consumption. He has become the "Santa Claus" who has largely supplanted the Christ child. I do not think that was in the sense of Saint Nicholas of Myra.
The true story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas, who was born during the third century in the village of Patara. At the time the area was Greek and is now on the southern coast of Turkey. His wealthy parents, who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young.
Obeying Jesus' words to "sell what you own and give the money to the poor," Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra.
He died December 6, AD 343 in Myra and was buried in his cathedral church, where a unique relic called Manna formed in his grave. This liquid substance, said to have healing powers, fostered the growth of devotion to Nicholas. The anniversary of his death became a day of celebration, St. Nicholas Day, December 6th .
One story tells of a poor man with three daughters. In those days a young woman's father had to offer prospective husbands something of value—a dowry. The larger the dowry, the better the chance that a young woman would find a good husband. Without a dowry, a woman was unlikely to marry. This poor man's daughters, without dowries, were therefore destined to be sold into slavery or protitution.
Mysteriously, on three different occasions, a bag of gold appeared in their home-providing the needed dowries.
The bags of gold, tossed through an open window, are said to have landed in stockings or shoes left before the fire to dry. This led to the custom of children hanging stockings or putting out shoes, eagerly awaiting gifts from Saint Nicholas. Sometimes the story is told with gold balls instead of bags of gold. That is why three gold balls, sometimes represented as oranges, are one of the symbols for St. Nicholas. And so St. Nicholas is a gift-giver.
Several stories tell of Nicholas and the sea. When he was young, Nicholas sought the holy by making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. There as he walked where Jesus walked, he sought to more deeply experience Jesus' life, passion, and resurrection. Returning by sea, a mighty storm threatened to wreck the ship. Nicholas calmly prayed. The terrified sailors were amazed when the wind and waves suddenly calmed, sparing them all. And so St. Nicholas is the patron of sailors and voyagers.
The Protector of all trouble and need
Other stories tell of Nicholas saving his people from famine sparing the lives of those innocently accused, and much more. He did many kind and generous deeds in secret, expecting nothing in return.
Within a century of his death he was celebrated as a saint. Today he is venerated in the East as wonder, or miracle worker and in the West as patron of a great variety of persons-children, mariners, bankers, pawn-brokers, scholars, orphans, laborers, travelers, merchants, judges, paupers, marriageable maidens, students, children, sailors, victims of judicial mistakes, captives, perfumers, even thieves and murderers!
He is known as the friend and protector of all in trouble or need.
Is Bruno Gröning a Saint as well?? For my experience YES!!!
Bruno Groening has given us a lot of VALUABLE information in his Christmas lectures, just like today when we listen to his tapes. Later we will also hear a section of the tape, "God sent us one, his son," summarizing the main principles and wisdom of his teaching. What I would like to say here is the most important thing in Bruno's teaching.
It's not just about the birth of Christ, it's about you, it’s about us, about you and me, about the birth of every one of you.
We should find out and gratefully show that we have all received a life from God and a wonderful body here on this earth. And what we are here for, what our job is and what we can learn on this – sometimes really not easy – it is a training planet….
Here the tape in his original voice with English translation, made by Tineke Nederpel: https://youtu.be/OVoX3UXfE8U
But first of all we would like to report today from the immediate experience of a contemporary witness.
Already in the last year or the year before, we talked about a witness report that is very beautiful and I would imagine that not all friends have got this report by Mrs. Anneliese Bollack, who had participated in Bruno Gröning sessions during his lifetime, as well as some Christmas celebrations with Bruno Gröning. Therefore, I have decided to share this eyewitness account again with you and to accompany it with pictures.
Bruno Gröning also appreciated the tree of life, the fir and we know that every year for Christmas he adorned the Christmas tree personally, whereby no one was allowed to disturb him. He often hid in the interior of the fir a small cushion with the Infant Jesus and Mary and Joseph, with many angels and stars, bells and pine cones.
Time witness report:
About the fir tree, Anneliese Bollack 1982
Mrs. Bollack was recalled by God already in 1997 and has still left us an interesting report she wrote for Christmas in 1982:
It's about the beautiful old Christmas carol :
Oh Christmas Tree
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your boughs can teach a lesson
That constant faith and hope sublime
Lend strength and comfort through all time.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your boughs can teach a lesson.
"My dear friends, this is the third rhyme from the well-known Christmas carol . Today I would like to talk to you about the fir tree and it’s dress that should teach us something. Always at Christmas time, we remember what Bruno Gröning taught us, recalling it to our memory and want to give it to the new friends so that they, too, can experience such a beautiful and blessed Christmas as we have experienced it since Bruno Groening has shown us the right path and the right attitude to Christmas.
Many good, beautiful things have already been reported. Last year, I realized that it was time to talk about the fir, because we had and we have a special relationship with it, we as friends of Bruno Groening.
In the community lessons, I have experienced that friends have no knowledge at all about it. Bruno Gröning taught us something very big with the fir-tree dress. Something that does not only happen in the spiritual, but that can be seen with your eyes and convince people who are not yet so firm in the faith.
The old friends will still know and remember but I would like to tell the new friends.
After a Christmas party - the whole room, the table and everything was decorated with fir branches - Bruno Groening took a few pine branches in the hand and said: "These needles will fall off after a certain time. But as man has faith and believes that they do not fall off, so they will stay tuned. If you believe me, you can take a few branches with you home and you will see what is truth. "
Perhaps one can’t say so or make it
apprehensible to others, but I think in the hall was no one who did not believe
Bruno Gröning that the needles of the fir tree shall remain off as long as they
are kept. And so we took home all the branches and indeed it was like that, as
Bruno Groening had said previously, the needles did not fall off.
Over the years I had more experience with the dress of fir. (...)
So I place every year over the image of Christ, the image of Our Lady Mary and about Bruno's picture a small pine branch. Never ever the needles fell off.Except once - and indeed I tell you how it happened:
It was Christmas time and the community hour was scheduled and our former community leader Ms. Puchalka and I decorated the room in the house of Mrs. Puchalka for friends.
Of course, we had made it just as we had learned it. We dropped colourful balls on the tree, small red mushrooms, tinsel, angel hair and everything one does so, scattered around the room and decorated the tree. We found it very nice. As I said goodbye and left the house, Bruno Groening arrived. I still welcomed him and then I went home.
(Slide)The next day, when I entered the room (we had decorated before) for attending the community hour , I hardly recognized it. Everything was changed. The coloured balls were gone. The tree stood there in his green splendour; Bruno Groening had formed many balls of tinfoil and decorated the tree with them. On the table stood a large beautiful glowing tinfoil ball.
Everything was changed but very beautiful and glorious.
I just was looking on and on. Later Mrs. Puchalka has reported that Mr. Groening had said: „What have poisonous mushrooms to do with a good Christmas Celebration?”
Everyone will remember: those were the little red mushroom with white dots.
I have always really liked them, because I love the red colour very much. Well, Mr. Groening had said it and it was really so much nicer, like he had decorated. It was really a wonderful Christmas Celebration that we had experienced at that time.
Bruno Groening had banished it from his room, and above all the little poisonous mushrooms that I had always loved so much.
I thought it just looked fantastic, the green of the fir and the red and white of the mushrooms.
Inside of me, a real fight was raging - on one side the words of Bruno and on the other side my joy about the red and white colour of the mushrooms.
Now I have to say that I am a little bit stubborn and do not let me take off anything so easily, when I like it and it gives me pleasure. So I decorated as always.
Yes, I even did something I had never done before: at the branch over Bruno's picture I put as well a small red mushroom and saying, "Oh, Bruno, a little bit of poison can not hurt!"
The next day I looked at the branch and was terribly frightened. All needles were at the branch, it was thick and beautiful as before, but on the single twig on which I had attached the small red mushroom, was not a single needle anymore. There was only the fungus there.
I looked at the picture of Bruno and then following thought came into my mind, as if Bruno spoke to me:
"It is done as you wanted it. You said a little poison does not hurt? I'm sorry, but that's not true. Where you allow the evil to fix itself, there's no more room for the good! Decide for yourself whether it hurts or not. So it’s the same in your body. If you want, you can still keep a little poison, but at this part where you give him space, no blessing will be!
„I think you have nothing in common with evil anymore...“
I immediately picked up the fungus from the branch and also I removed all the mushrooms out of my room. As every year I let the branch there as in all previous years before too.
He has taught me much. Nevertheless, I was very glad when next Christmas period came and I was finally able to take it off, because it reminded me of a dumb view and action. Who wants to be constantly reminded? Not me! Since then, I fully confirm Bruno Groening's words: "I think that now you have nothing in common with the evil." - Yes, Bruno, not even a tiny little bit!
Blessed Fir branches:
Yes, dear friends, this is a valuable lesson that we can learn here. I myself have collected those pine branches from previous years, where the needles were not dropped and it is indeed true, what Bruno Groening said.
Youtube video: Christmas with Bruno Gröning: https://youtu.be/kWJILcVK-ZM
In this video you will find a part of Bruno Grindings Christmas speech in German words.
The main topic of his speech was always to remember the birth of Christ in comparison to our own birth and how to recognize our task in life.Here the exactly translation of the words in this clip:
"So, my dear friends. the Nativity of Christ will not be understood sooner, nor will it be understood before, until you have absorbed that knowledge, that you know what it means to you, your own birth, your own earthly life. I'll say it again quite clearly that you have come to self-knowledge. And that you know of yourself not something, but one thing, what you really are, in fact. Then you too, my dear friends, you will really prepare for the Holy Christmas, the true Redeemer, so that until this day you are also worthy to receive the Blessed Sacrament, all the good that God has destined for you."
As it gradually got around in Rosenheim, how beautiful these Christmas celebrations are in the presence of BRUNO GRÖNING, more and more people came forward, so that the community leader was looking for a larger hall.
So then the celebrations in Western village St. Peter (in the Hotel Höhensteiger) were held at Rosenheim. Then there were other preparations to make and we were eager to glue countless homemade golden stars made of gold paper for large Christmas trees, and to createfir bins for the tables.
The community leader made pyramids of tinfoil balls covered with red candles for each table in this large hall. I made a large number of Rauschgoldengeln (golden angels) in a year, which were attached to every wall light with green fir. It was a beautiful sight, this big hall with Christmas trees on the stage, with the table decoration and the many candles and the golden angels on the walls.
And then it was time: BRUNO GRÖNING came with the board members of the association under the sounds of "Hallelujah" from the Messiah of Handel, slowly through the hall and his bright blue eyes seized every one of us and it was as if a Wave of happiness came with him about each one. After the welcome by the community leader again a plate with Christmas carols was launched. There were other members of the board and then BRUNO GRÖNING lit the candles in his place and from this burning candle all the countless candles on the tables and on the trees on the stage were lit.
Some small interludes were given by friends and in between again and again our beautiful German Christmas carols played on records until the big moment came and BRUNO GRÖNING entered the stage and gave us a lecture.
During such a lecture, there was a silence in the great hall, and everyone present felt especially addressed by Him, as if he were looking to the bottom of his soul and his words are directed to every single one personally. Some I saw crying quietly, but these were not tears of sorrow, but the soul freed itself by the weeping of bad experiences of recent times; because, without exception, the whole hall was full of bright and happy people after such a lecture, and I am convinced that it took place in each one and it was fulfilled what everybody has asked for.
Gorgeous were those hours. BRUNO GRÖNING first of all explained to us what the birth of CHRIST meant to each and every one of us; he pointed out that just above this Celebration, the grace, the goodwill of God prevails on all mankind and I remember that once he asked quite spontaneously, "Who can memorize the stanzas of the song Silent Night, Holy Night, without the tune?" Honestly, I did not answer because I was not sure that I could have done it ... Those heavenly sounds of this song are familiar to us from childhood and considering that straight text and melody are created by two simple men, and now it is sung all over the world in all languages. Our friend certainly knew what this song of intimacy and love sounds like and what a blessing it is, a blessing that applies not only to German-speaking people, but to all.
At that time a friend stood up, I still see it as today: the main teacher Preußler from the Rosenheim community and he spoke fluently the lyrics of the song, such way BRUNO wished it, and this reminder gives me the impetus to do the same thing right now, and I ask you all to take that text of the glorious song word for word.
Now you may listen to this song sung by some children and afterwards my new made video. Please watch at my Channel Bhanjani 123

Now I want to show you some more pictures and autographes, Bruno Gröning gave to the friends after a Christmas celebration:
Now I would like to share a wonderful healing report, which happened in our independent group in Quebec in Canada, which is guided by a wonderful lady with name Marie France. I’ve met her in Spain in 2013, when we both have visited the independent groups of Maria Molina from Spain, (she is leading more than 10 communities) Marie France came from Canada and I from Germany - and we experienced a thrilling time there. Also we both suffered a lot, but that’s another story, I don’t like to mention here. From 2014 up to now wonderful things are happening. The Canadian friends are also attending our OMs and here now I received this wonderful letter with a card where signed more than 20 friends and they sent Christmas wishes. Here I tell you about one of the wonderful healings:
Here is Murielle’s story: Healing of a Torn Medial Meniscus on left knee:
Murielle used to come to my groups for Postural Gymnastic. In Month of May 2014, she came limping with 2 crutches and told me she had a torn meniscus on her left knee, confirmed on the MRI. Right away I thought of Bruno and I talked to her after the class asking her if she believed in God. She said, she is a strong believer. Then right away , I gave her Bruno's picture and I told her < take this picture ,put him on your left knee and just ask him for you healing.! >I didn't say much, because I didn't know how she would accept all this information.
Then a week later she called me for an appointment in physiotherapy. I explained to her about Bruno before the treatment, she was very open. We did Einstellen together , we asked for Bruno’s help and the healing of her knee. I was not sure if I would be able to treat her, but she was very convinced that we would not be alone in this work.(It was an adventure for me, asking openly Bruno's help for the treatment! Usually I would not speak about it.)
She started at the beginning of June 2014, she received 3 treatments and when she came beginning of July, she had no more pain on her knee! I was overjoyed, so she was! Bruno had done his work so beautifully! He had worked with us! Thank you Bruno for your help!
She went to see her surgeon in October 2014 who was supposed to operate on her knee. After seeing the last MRI, he told her only scar tissue could be seen on her medial meniscus, then He wrote today : “Madame presents normal examination and needs no treatment whatsoever. She's discharged “
Now 12 of December 2017, Murielle’s knee is completely healed.
