The Inner Sun

The Key to the Doorway Leading into the Eternal Sun (Archangel Michael)

by Ulla, creator of Healing Cancer Naturally, copyright © 2004 & 2005, updated 2016

I am an avid and eclectic reader on numerous subjects both “material” and spiritual, in continual search of new possible puzzle pieces to the great mystery of life and creation humans are immersed in.

About two years ago, I came across someone the originality of whose spiritual teachings I became impressed with — Max Prantl (1912–1957), painter, poet and mystic, someone I don't think I had ever heard of before.

I am including him in these pages as one of many conceivable references to the importance of “spiritual light” (defined as light outside the limited frequency range of human vision lying between the wavelengths of about 400 nm and 800 nm) not just for our emotional and spiritual wellbeing but also for our physical health.

I read a book by him, originally published in 1949 and called 'Der Mensch ohne Angst. Licht aus der Herzmitte' ('Man without fear. Light from the centre of the heart') and repeatedly reread it (for further details, see below under "Books in English by Max Prantl").

This Austrian mystic advises just one single spiritual practice, which, of course, should be repeated as often as possible. According to him, it provides the "key to the doorway into the Eternal Sun":

“Let your physical heart, in a vivid visualization, flare up into a radiant ball of light as the sun and tell yourself: 'My divine heritage flares up within me as bliss, freedom, light and love. God wishes it so, as do I wish it so. I am one with the Will of God. I allow my whole body to be filled with this light, I even allow it to radiate beyond me, until my body and all around me fills with brilliant light, as if from the sun.'"

This mystic sunrise, which is experienced as a vivid visualization only within the physical body, is an immediately effective, visible reality within the astral body. With the fire of your divine will (it's enough to vividly think: I will to be light and free), you are really and literally burning all the darkness and distortions within your consciousness.”

Max Prantl continues to explain that doing this exercise will also help dissolve any diseases we may have manifested in our bodies. (Incidentally, just such a cancer healing effected with spiritual light can be read at Visualization technique & self-healing meditation: working with a Universal Healing Light to fight [dissolve] cancer and other diseases.)

According to Prantl, we are becoming (or rather have the choice to do so) Eternal Suns — and I find it a fascinating correlation that on one of my Orin meditation tapes (Orin, an entity channelled by Sanaya Roman, is my favourite teacher of “love-and-light consciousness” who, together with Seth*, has given me tremendous help in my life), Orin says the same thing, i.e. that our final destination is to become a sun.
* who “jump-started” me on the spiritual path

In his book, Prantl describes an abundance of inner experiences with the light and the dark forces and outlines, among other things, his view (based upon personal experience) of the various soul and consciousness levels and the genesis and progression of the human spirit through many stages, as well as its final destination.

He deals in great detail with the mindset and genesis of negative beings as he personally experienced them in numerous encounters. I find truly profound what I read and the beauty is, it tallies well with other books I have based my "explorations" upon.

The book covers among other things "Christ, Buddha, Unio mystica, the meaning of suffering, cognition of God, angels and archangels, The Three Paths (among which the soul is able to choose at the outset), the Inner Name, Paradox, Personality and the three goals of development" etc.

You'll find an introduction to Max Prantl and his work at (currently — March 21 — only available via Some of his writings can be downloaded in the German original and as a Dutch translation (other sites may offer more Dutch translations), and we now have two English translations as well, see below under "Books in English by Max Prantl").

The menu point "Light from the primordial light" and others contain translated English excerpts from Licht aus der Herzmitte [which, btw, occasionally are rather haphazard and taken out of context, while the book goes into detail over the points alluded to in these sentences]). Note (2018): These pages have been removed but are still available on

Prantl (as hinted at in the English excerpts) discovers in the course of his work (he seems to have been busy day and night confronting dark forces on the inner planes) that he used to be Michael (archangel) and had made the commitment to do this kind of work to help humanity. We all, according to Prantl's insights, arise from an original existence as angels, with three main evolutionary paths offered to us to choose from.

Contrary to the above, he doesn't sound like a megalomaniac or appear deluded etc., — in fact the book is written as a conversation between himself and (often very critical and outspoken) friends who accuse him of just that in their exchanges with him. He heartily welcomes this, as well as other criticisms they offer and replies with explanations which defuse any such notions.

The book isn't always an easy read, the concepts introduced tend to be highly complex and to require careful reading and consideration. Prantl repeatedly states the insufficiency and inability of words to convey higher truths, maintaining that only allegories and parables will often be able to give an idea of these truths.

Addendum: comments on the Inner Sun

Laxmi Narayan wrote these beautiful comments on the Inner Sun to the Sungazing yahoo group:

“I guess, if the entire universe is inside us, Sun is also there. Right.
So no need to get up and go out in cold to look for rising or setting Sun. Just sit up in bed covered in warm blankets and pillows and with hot cup of sweet milky tea and watch this Inner Sun. Right. Mind you, I read somewhere that once this Inner Sun rises, it never sets. No need for UV cards and no burning either. But it takes so long for it to rise and then it depends only on Grace.”
