The Living Dead

Stretched up, immobile,
in the corn cobbed dawn
as I stand waiting
for the crows to flutter
with echoing screams
and land on my stretched limbs
I cannot clap.

The frosting dawn
has paralyzed my limbs
I feel impaled and strangely
I can not shriek
nor can I scare the crows.
They own me now
as ghosts arisen
from a war torn land.

The letter Y, symbol of the Pythagorean School

Healing occurs at many levels: physical, psychological, emotional, by placebo effect, spiritual, etc... and information about the healing process can be obtained through dowsing. I do not use rods but a system using tarot cards.
.......In this story available on, healing is obtained through self hypnosis, using vocalizations to effect the tuning of the chakras and the use of archetypal imagery.

As a matter of fact my healing specialty belongs within the framework of Siberian Shamans, since I sent out energy from my solar plexus. Believe it or not I am in the process of finishing my autobiography about my unusual experiences since childhood. The title is "The Autobiography of a Suburban Shaman". You shall it eventually on

Moving Belt, Seance

Yes, we had a seance. Yes, the medium was good. Yes, she could read our minds. Yes, on New Years Eve 1979 we had a great party. The next morning the belt pertaining to a dress worn by a kid at the party, but which had never entered the house with the dress suddenly appeared on ironing board. Go to for the excerpt of this event. It is part of the documentary called Fiammetta's Story. Link is above it.

Ice Cream Falls

In 1999 as I and a friend were eating lentil soup in a deli after about 8 minutes at the table I and a couple of elderly citizens saw suddenly two ice cream cones, chocolate and vanilla, fall from the ceiling and splash on the floor behind my friend's back. Go to for the 5 minute video about the event.

Lincoln's Bullet

It just so happened in 1970-71 that an enameled plate on which I had etched a drawing I created of Lincoln's face had an accident while being fired in the kiln. A round black spot appeared on his forehead and I was not capable of burning it out. My neighbor who received the enameled plate a gift asked me if I knew how Lincoln had been killed. I only knew of the event. She informed me that the black spot on the plate, on Lincoln's forehead, showed the location where the bullet had lodged in the head! This was one of my first such experiences.

Anna's Leap

In Flight

Anna was our maid when I was 17 years old in Rome. One night as I sat in my darkened room with an open window, Anna ran unaware that I could see her along the balcony climbed on top of the rail and plunged. The other maids in the courtyard actually urged her to commit suicide. They had had enough of her complaints about life. 

     Instead of falling straight down, smashed on the cement courtyard, she "flew" diagonally to the left and landed as story below into our neighbors balcony. There wasn't even a scratch on her body. The story relates how the events unfolded and I wrote a play about it in 1958.

Vision 2

Resurrection by Matthias Gruenewald, Isenheim Altarpiece, 16th Century

As I was walking towards the olive grove on a warm July evening I suddenly stopped as a whole sweep of life engulfed me, and at 11 years or age I had what is now called a mystical experience. I did not talk about it for the following 65 years.

     How could an 11 year old child say to adults that it had had a transcendant experience and be taken seriously. The child knew that no one would believe it and kept silent about most of it for 25 years, only to divulge the complete received message 40 years later.

Childhood Roots

This is a brief exert of my childhood on a farm along the Appian Road about 10 miles outside of Rome. That was my heaven as I played with cats, snails, rabbits, and gathered wild herbs for dinner. It suddenly ended on a cold November night when I was woken up, dressed, bundled into a German commander's car and driven to Rome, because it had become Open City. We had moved to my grandmother's apartment.

This story is part of my autobiography which is in the process of being edited.

A Psychic Journey

Fiammetta's Interview at the Alua Magna at U of Stockholm 2011

As a presenter about anomalous and spiritual phenomena in 2011 at TSC (Towards a Science of Consciousness), both as a researcher and as an artist exhibiting her art at the same time, Fiammetta is being interviewed by journalist Bertil Hakansson while her art is in the background.
      In this particular instance Hilda Holman filmed the whole interview which lasted for about an hour. It described her earliest spiritual experiences, clairvoyance, telepathy, P.K. since the age of 10. Her own interest in these phenomena has been paramount in order for her to understand to some degree why, when, and what these experiences were about.
      They can be interpreted from various points of view such as religion, spirituality, culture, psychology, biology, etc... and possibly within a framework correlating brain, mind and consciousness function. Furthermore, she is driven by her own existential experiences, most of which were witnessed by outsiders, to attempt outlining various hypotheses about motivations and circumstances creating them.
      Besides being an artist Fiammetta has also trained in the medical field and in philosophy (see website: and she finds herself in the unusual position of researching the phenomena of her own experiences. Subject and object are the same in this inquiry.
      Since 1978 a theologian Paul Lehman with whom she had a seminar at Ghost Ranch suggested that she write a book about her life experiences. She started the project three times over all those years and has finally arrived to the last leg of the enterprise and possibly of her life! Needless to say the advent of computers has facilitated the job and 34 more years of living have yielded more fruits!
      Her concern regarding her autobiography comes from her desire to communicate to others how, when, and why she may have had experiences which a good number of the population has always had, but may have repressed, ignored, or have been fearful of. Two films about these unusual events are available from Marcus Perfjell and Fiammetta Rubin. It is Fiammetta's hope that her experiences might be used as a mirror through which viewers might recognize what they already know, and use the messages or meanings gathered from these experiences for further self knowledge and personal empowerment.
