History of Origins

Paul Kuhn, the vegetable gardener of Dozwil, was and always stayed a seeker of spiritual truth, even through difficult times. In the Coué method he found a way of self-fulfilment through positive thinking. He was able to overcome his big inhibitions and at the age of 42 he began to work as a Coué instructor, giving public lectures. The basic formula of the Coué method states: «Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better». Paul Kuhn complemented this formula with the Christian approach: «…because the divine powers work within me».

Paul Kuhn taught the people to fill the soul with positive thoughts and to make our daily life more life-affirming and successful. For him an important means for inner development was the meditative relaxation (in german) of the body, the spirit and the soul. To harmonious background music, he spoke words which help to relax the body and help to achieve a rich gratification of the soul.

At his courses he met Maria Gallati, who had had many mystic experiences until God called her as his instrument. Thanks to her consent, Paul Kuhn experienced the great biblical miracle: St. Michael spoke to him through the mouth of this gifted woman. St. Michael instructed him in spiritual teaching, led and guided him. In the Book of Daniel, Chap. 12, the work of St. Michael was prophesised for the times we live in.

In the same way, the apostle to the nations, St. Paul, was prepared for his apostolic ministry by the Holy Spirit, after his Damascus-epiphany in the desert of Arabia. By speaking through the mouth of the Apostles, the Holy Spirit worked in the miracle of Pentecost and then time and time again through exceptionally gifted people in the Early Christian Church. In the Acts of the Apostles we can read regarding the sending of the Apostles in Antioch: «…the Holy Spirit said to them: Separate me Saul and Barnabas, for the work whereunto I have taken them. Then they, fasting and praying, and imposing their hands upon them, sent them away.»
