The messages of the Earth healing Angel Devos are of fundamental importance to their work. Marko Pogacnik, as well as his daughters, has published several books.

Enduring Peace
in comprehension with the Feminine Principle

The feminine principle is a cyclical principle. Death, changing and war are not excluded like it is in a masculine system which always fights for peace, and produces war. Peace do not means "to make peace", but peace is the recognation that everything what does not be rooted deep in the earth and high in the spirit always will come across with difficulties, in changing, death and war. This belongs to the feminine wisdom: only by inner transformation one may attain to peace. If once the inner peace will be attained, the outer peace among people and peace between humans and nature, and earth can arise also. Otherwise peace only will be superficial - a masculine strive for control.
