Alas, I'm far from certain this is a break-up. Too much money and too many commercial interests involved.
They may not continue as a (genuine) couple but I believe their co-operation will continue.

What ever he did for the Princess to call it quits must have been pretty bad...I can only imagine.

I hope the princess and her girls can begin to heal and find some peace. I worry about the children.

Do you mean the marital break up of the late Ari Behn and ML? No, Durek did not know the princess at that time. He had nothing to do with the breakdown of her marriage to Ari.

Is there a source which is saying that the princess and Mr. Verrett have ended their relationship? (I apologize if I have misinterpreted anyone's comments and that was not the implication.) The Svensk Damtidning article in post #631 says, if I understood it correctly, that the couple remain committed to the relationship in spite of being obliged to live apart for the time being.

Its understandable that at this time, ML needs to focus on her daughters and Mr. Verrett is tending to whatever it is he tends to. This is the kind of separation that will really test their relationship. One of two things will happen.

1. Absence makes the heart grow fonder
OR
2. Absence makes the heart go wander.

Time will tell.

Märtha Louise has given an interview to swedish Svenska Dagbladet, it is a paywall article. Swedish Expressen quotes the interview, which was obviously done when Märtha Louise was in Sweden to promote her book, before Ari's death.

Over the past year, most of her has been about the relationship with American shaman Shaman Durek, whose real name is Durek Verrett.
She says they share things like a great interest in spirituality and supernaturalism.
- It is so great to share something that is so important to me and to be with someone who understands, accepts and likes what I do, she tells Svenska Dagbladet.

Sorry, but that does not speak for you! I have nothing to say in favour of this man, but what is going on on this thread, all that hatred and prejudice, is shameful and ridiculous. I will never understand the need of some to gossip viciously about people nobody of us know personally.
If that "shaman`s" behaviour is appaling, all this constant chitchat is as well.(..)

I disagree with your stance.
And I flatly refuse to give in to "someone's" interpretation of political correctness - in this case you! Who claims to speak on behalf of Christians, Buddhist, and Muslims. - Because you do not speak on their behalf! You speak for yourself.
My remark was satirical, and once we abolish satire and humor (also humor that is not to everyone's taste) on this forum for fear of possibly, maybe, potentially, offending someone, somewhere, then we have woefully little left of our most precious right: The freedom of speech.

Anyway, I thought it was pretty obvious that my remark was directed at Durak. As this thread is very much about him. That you choose to involve religions that believe in various forms of afterlife and/or reincarnations - that is your misinterpretation.

As for Durek himself, we are talking about a man who among other things advocates that cancer-patients can cure themselves by their own sheer will. Patients who wouldn't have contracted cancer in the first place if they didn't subconsciously wanted to. And who wouldn't have died if they really had wanted to live!
He is quack and charlatan and a danger to those seriously ill who, in desperation, turn to him. - And pay handsomely for his "service" BTW.

So you bet I'm going to ridicule ham!

By your taking part in this thread and calling everyone out for being appalling and pretty much throwing shade on all of us, gee, that doesn't seem quite right. I think I get that you miss "a place to contribute and exchange ones love and passion about the monarchial idea - and less cynical malice". I personally enjoy alot of the irreverent humor and diversity of thought but at the same time I continue to learn so much from these forums as I've learned from many of your own posts. My beef with "the Shaman" is that I find him dangerous.

Please note that the thread has had a little clean-up.
The discussion about (other) religions has to end here, as well as any personal arguments and off-topic discussions. Please be respectful towards the people you discuss and to blame Durek Verrett for the suicide of Ari Behn falls beyond the pale, no matter how questionable his lifestyle and views are. Thank you for your understanding!

Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but it seems PML is no longer "liking" any posts from the Shaman.

In my previous post I meant to convey I hope Princess Martha Louise is done with the Shaman Durek phase of her life.

Durek's answer about the possible rift between him and Martha Louise

"“Märtha Louise is my twin-flame. We do not care about these rumours”.

And Princess Martha`s manager, Carina Scheele Carlsen who says: “We do not comment on allegations in the German gossip press”.

Well, well, now we can all sleep well again, knowing this...

It would indeed astonish me that Durek should have left his queen. After all he has memories of the two of them in a past life in Egypt, where he was a pharaoh and she was his queen.

This article, that quotes a number of verifiable sources, shed more light on what a remarkable man Durek is.
https://www.vg.no/rampelys/i/Vb5gl6/...-ble-gjenfoedt

Durek suffered from incurable kidney failure in his younger days. At one point his heart stopped beating and while one doctor pronounced him dead, another doctor refused to give up and brought him back to life. But Durek lay in artificial coma for months and for a year after waking up he couldn't walk.
Seven years later Durek's then boyfriend used that story as the basis for a crowdfunding, so that Durek could get a new kidney, donated by his sister.
- He got the kidney.

But the episode, where the doctors seeming were in disagreement about declaring him dead..., is what Durek himself describes as a "spiritual death." And it was after waking up that he got his powers.
"I was 28, awoken, and knew I was to die."
His "death" was a "transition" and he describes it as being "reborn."
"It felt like swimming under water and see up and see a light. When I woke up I could see everything, hear everything and everyone's thoughts and emotions and an intense love for everything streamed out of me.
People often ask me how that felt. I will describe it as the best sex you've ever had, the best sandwich, the best food you've eaten. Totally orgasmic."

He first discovered his powers when he was five, where he often had conversations with his grandmother, even though she wasn't there.

But the road to where he is now was hard and full of trials.
He went from partying and drinking to enlightenment. And even that stage hasn't been easy!
"Lot of information I have been given and passed on to people is looked down upon, so I used to get a lot of hate and anger directed towards me. These experiences have taught me a lot.
Shamanism is about physiology, kinesiology, anthropology and sociology. When we start, we start very young. I was chosen when I was five years old.
What happens in shamanism is that we actually have the ability which gives us access to the atoms. We can spin the nucleus in the atoms, as well as the electrons in the atoms that literally reduce age. It's really powerful stuff."

BTW. Durek wasn't always his first name. He changed his name from Derek David Verrett to Durek Verrett in 2014.

- And with all that in my mind, I will go to bed. Goodnight.

Sometimes it is possible to convey so much...so powerfully .by learning the art of being economical with words( For the best example of what I am talking about read Lincoln's classic Gettysburg Address)

Put rudely, Mr Verrett runs his mouth too much.

These must be the articles Verrett feels compelled to open his pie hole over.

https://www.blick.ch/people-tv/royal...d15758748.html

"Is everything already over between the Norwegian princess Märtha Louise (48) and her shameless shaman Durek Verrett (45)? The family has been doing badly since her ex-husband Ari Behn († 47) committed suicide. But instead of assisting them in this difficult time, Durek travels the world with his spirit healing sessions, as «Closer» reports. Another sign of separation: The shaman apparently no longer cares what the princess does on social networks. He no longer follows her on Instagram." This is just for starts.

I have always loved Märtha Louise and still does, but i can’t help that i wish that this relationship will soon be over...

Not that i would EVER expect a free spirited and liberal soul like Princess Märtha Louise marrying a conservative scottish Earl and move to a closed castle in the highlands or a stern naval officer, who is always away at the sea. That is simply not Märtha Louise.

But there must be someone out there even for her, who does not attract a lot of media attention for ”the wrong things”.
She would (and more than ever right now) need someone who can take her down to earth again and complement her. That’s how any healthy relationship works. Not someone who lifts her even higher up in the sky than she already is...

Kind of gives credence to the adage "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." In Mr. Verrett's case, he's going but it seems to be that he's going far, far away and focusing on what is important to him and him alone.
