BIG JOE is the Spirit Guide of Johannesburg, and the “Angel of Healing” of this major African town. The black continent looks upon his energy.
He made himself known to me as the “Son of Light” in his creative journey to inspire new hope for this New Millennium in Johannesburg.
Offering the “Trinity of Love”, when all races join in respect to each other, celebrating and complimenting each other.
Very strong from his heart, as a spiritual teacher and great Pontiff penetrating through our feelings, for us to learn the real value of LOVE.
Manifesting in trinity of all practical skills building the spirit into matter. Influencing architecture while complimenting all races, each with expertise into realistic results. Making this town a beacon of Africa, from within as from without.

BIG JOE’S higher agreement with the town and its people is about the “Son of Light", that came as a healer for balance. In order to expand awareness among its residence and to teach them to be true to themselves!
If “Johannesburger’s” practice integrity, others can look upon us and follow our example. He whispers into our ears during sleep, soft and gentle with Dolphin energy, taking Joburg into a “New Flight”. One can say, that a Sunbird moved into our town since the Solstice 2001. Mainly experienced at our Spleen Chakra for creative power, stimulating new ways of expression.

Opening the “World of Stars” for Joburg. Making them visible and even give birth to new stars in the city. Enhancing self-esteem and merchandise, good for business dealings internationally. Joburg to literally reach the stars and shine it’s own light in great confidence of success. Lifting this city to a higher octave in the musical scale through “D’AMORE” in music terms, the middle C of higher beingness.
Promoting resonance with all creation! Revealing the secrets of the origin of MAN to humanity. Our scientists will find the answers to this question!

BIG JOE works through our pets!
Our pets are transmitters of love throughout the universe. We have to become more aware about them and their transmitted messages, signs, and giving more attention to them! This is very important.
We have to observe the behaviour patterns of our pets more intensely.
Most they dream, receiving frequencies, and act them out afterwards! We have to learn to observe through our feelings.

It is the plan of BIG JOE to open the Crown Chakra of Johannesburg to enter this New Millennium. To teach its inhabitants to feel on deeper levels, letting go of greed and competition, and rather open the valves towards higher creativity that serves all arts in its Initiation process of completion.
Whilst in the past we lived in competition with each other we separated into polarity. The future will join opposites, in order to compliment each other in knowledge, wisdom and skills, bringing birth to Trinity.

The painting displays BIG JOE with his DNA spiral, the High Priestess and the Angel of Healing. The animals, dolphins and birds with the golden nugget of ancient Egoli and different races. What started as a mining town for gold diggers, we now must turn this precious metal from inside out into the world. True gold now be mined through the people of Joburg. By expressing real golden identity from the soul levels! “The real gold is within”.
It was within the soil of Mother Earth, and without as jewellery worn by all throughout this planet!
In the Future planning “Joburger’s” become the “Jewel of Africa!” themselves.

This is the task of BIG JOE!

Lots of Love
