Ramtha Can’t Speak German, Court Rules Austrian Judges Put Gag Order On Atlantean Warrior

The Austrian Supreme Court has ruled that U.S. spiritualist J.Z. Knight is the only person allowed to channel Ramtha, the 35,000-year-old warrior she says communicates through her.

The ruling means an end to the five-year career of Ramtha’s German-speaking channeler, Julie Ravel, who said the transcendental gentleman showed up five years ago in her crystal shop in Berlin, Germany, and selected her as his new mouthpiece.

She says Knight had gotten “hung up” during channeling and become “unusable” as a medium for Ramtha.

Knight said she was overjoyed by the decision.

“I didn’t want the German-speaking people of Europe to be misled by someone who, under the name of Ramtha, was distorting his teachings and in some cases teaching things that were directly opposite of his teachings,” Knight said in a news release from Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment in Yelm, Wash.

“It is up to me to keep the teachings pure and uncorrupted and I take my job quite seriously, as you can see.”

Until 1992, all was serendipitous between Ramtha and Knight.

According to her, this enlightened leader from the lost continent of Atlantis first appeared to her 20 years ago in her kitchen “bringing the message that God is within,” her news release said. Then a housewife in Tacoma, Knight has parlayed her vision into the school - a mansion on a 40-acre ranch - with a following of 3,000 people in 23 countries.
