Jozef Rulof was born in 1898 in 's Heerenberg, a rural part of the Netherlands.
His mother Crisje called him ‘Jeus’.
Jeus is extraordinarily sensitive, he feels and sees things which other people cannot see.
As a little boy he can already see a radiant form from the life after death.
This spirit later makes himself known by the name of Alcar.
As a spiritual guide he supports Jeus in every way and explains all the aspects of life to him.
Jeus gets to know him as a close friend whom he can always count on.
Jeus does not do well at school, because his life of feeling is not open to the dry learning material.
Later Alcar explains why Jeus could not absorb any knowledge at school.
For that matter, all that social knowledge would get in the way of the wisdom which the spiritual world wishes to pass on to Jeus.
‘The life in two worlds’, which the first part of the biography ‘Jeus of Mother Crisje’ describes, is hard enough as it is for Jeus.
Jeus gets his education directly from the life after death and his spiritual Master has a much deeper understanding of the human being than the Masters from the earthly schools have.
Alcar shows Jeus how the people around him live.
What they say and what they keep silent about.
What they know and especially what they still do not know.
This is a tremendous learning experience for Jeus, described in the second part of the biography with the subtitle: ‘Jeus amongst the people’.
When Jeus moves to The Hague as an adult, he has to arm his personality against the very demanding life in the city.
The people from The Hague call him ‘Jozef’ and he has to work hard as a taxi driver to earn a living for him and his wife.
At the same time the spiritual world is now only just beginning for him.
The third part of ‘Jeus of Mother Crisje’ describes how Alcar takes the Mediumship of Jozef Rulof to great heights.
As preparation for the writing mediumship, the painting and healing mediumships are first developed.
Alcar brings spiritual painters to Jozef Rulof and asks them to bring their astral art to earth by using the physical body of Jozef.
In order to achieve this Alcar puts Jozef into a deep grade of sleep, a trance state.
Just as we lose the conscious control over our earthly body when we are falling asleep, Jozef also lets go of the control over his earthly body during the deep trance.
At that moment Alcar takes over and he influences the nervous system and the muscular system of the material body of the medium in order to listen to his strong spiritual will.
In this way Alcar can see through earthly eyes again and move material arms and hands in order to write down what he feels and thinks as a spiritual personality.
In order to make the trance of Jozef Rulof deeper, much painting is done first.
Since various artists take over Jozef's body under the guidance of Alcar in order to bring their works of art to earth, the trance becomes deeper.
By means of this, the painters can give more colour and refinement to the paintings.
Despite the fact that Jozef Rulof did not study any art course, the paintings made by his hand show a rich diversity of styles of painting which were each individually finished off to a great height.
This remarkable diversity and depth can be traced back to the various 'masters in the art of painting' who were able to bring their art to earth again through his painting mediumship.
For more information about this art of painting, see the art album ‘The Painting Mediumship of Jozef Rulof’ which contains almost 200 illlustrations.
His healing mediumship also emerges in that period and Jozef sets himself up as a magnetizer.
During his magnetizing, Alcar shows Jozef how the material organs absorb the magnetic power.
Jozef learns whom he can help and whom he cannot help.
Alcar explains that magnetism is power of feeling, and that the degree of love of the magnetizer determines and limits the height of this power of feeling.
Jozef regularly gets people to treat whose physical state had deteriorated because of other magnetizers who did not radiate spiritual love.
