They're saying that she's starting up a school where people can learn clairvoyancy, alternative medicine, and how to communicate with angels. Here's a version in English:

Princess claims clairvoyant powers, aims to share them - Aftenposten.no

PR experts are arguing whether or not the news of Märtha starting a school on how to learn to communicate with angels, learn clairvoyancy, alternative medicine, etc. is positive or negative for the royal house.


Given that Norway has a state church (for now, anyway) and the King is the head of said church, some articles I've read have pointed out that it can be troublesome when his daughter goes alternative ways in terms of religion (although, I imagine there would be more outrage if she converted to catholisism, Islam or other religions - now I imagine she'll just be seen as a bit kooky...). But then, I think it would've been more of a problem if she had done it while she was still a part of the royal house.

Ugh...Certainly it's hard to swallow...What a world we are living in. But of course, since we are in THIS world, completely crazy and turned upside-down, I'm not surprised the least bit about this ...erm...new.

Go ahead!

I would be interested in attending the school. Too bad the webiste's in norwegian, and I don't speak/read/understand norwegian. I wouldn't consider it an alternative religion, but can be used to enhance one's religious beliefs.

Yes, I just saw this in the news. I would have never thought anything like this. She is starting this school along with a friend no?

There's nothing strange or new in this. Many Kings had the "power" of healing people just by touching them in the past. Having "the gift" has nothing to do with your social standing. Why shouldn't a Royal Princess have it? She's a human like anyone of us.

Also Princess Diana was said to have had it.

What is amazing to me is the money she asks for to attend her school. If you have "the gift", share it with the others. Ask for money, if it's your job, but not so much!

re the fees for attending her school: she dropped her royal allowance I think when she got married so she needs an income

This kind of shocked me, as it's not usually the "normal" thing for a princess to do, but if you have the gift, by all means share it. I'm not saying I believe this stuff, but how could she get people to talk to angels if they just don't have that capability? Wouldn't it be a waste of money to go to the school?

I couldn't help but chuckle. She is truly becoming an "anything for kroner" princess. But since I am a believer in free thought and expression and if people actually want to sign up for this, by all means, go for it.

I do wonder, though, if she feels she is truly "blessed" with an extraordinary gift, shouldn't she become some sort of missionary to share this gift and not sell it like some entrepreneurial quack?

Well, from what I've seen from Martha Louise, she has always been a "little bit different" from everyone else.
So this really does not suprise me. though it may suprise her family!

A rather odd confession of a princess, especially considering her father is the head of the Norwegian Lutheran Church.

I find it all a little bit embarassing for the Norwegian Royal Family. For example, in the UK we hear very little about them except perhaps during a state visit, as there was 18 months or so ago. Therfore not many people here know about them. So for this to be the only news people get on them(it made it on to the BBC) is a bit unfortunate.
However, she is not my Princess and I suppose what is more important is how other Norwegians feel.

This is NOT a religion.

Having the ability or wanting to learn these things has nothing to do with religion. It has to do with spirituality which is entirely different. There seems to be a lot of people trying to make it look like she no longer wishes to be Lutheran and that's not correct.

couldn't agree more spirituality has nothing to do with religion. i've know some people with what i consider "gifts" and they would never ever take $ for any help they give NEVER. btw they all believe in God but not organized religion.

Does ML posses a 6th sense?

I found in this newspaper article (in spanish) that she has contacts with angels and can see the future. Here's the link (sorry, no time to translate)
http://http://www.diario.com.mx/nota...c8df06bb433564. Here's another one - Jeg ble healet av Märtha - kjendis.no

Not meaning offense, but that's a little odd. I wonder if it has anything to do with her cracking under the stress from the school she's opening, and all of the negative speculation and calling for her to be kicked out of the Lutheran Church. But, then again, it's most likely just some sickness that she picked up.
