Petra Maartense has made a DVD in collaboration with Ian Graham, on which various interviews with White Bull can be seen. White Bull is a ‘teacher’ who speaks to us from another dimension. Here she tells about her own impressive experience with White Bull and explains what motivated her to make this DVD, in the hope that many people will benefit from it.
‘I am White Bull’, a booming, impressively warm voice suddenly fills the room. ‘Hello my friend and welcome. We bring you a warm and very loving greeting. I’m very happy to be with you.
I come into your presence with one desire, which is to serve you and I hope the fruits of that service will leave you with feelings of deeper peace, richer clarity, better understanding and a little bit of reassurance of that is also required.’
White Bull is an old, wise, long-dead Indian, who communicates with you through Ian Graham, a modest (so no roaring) Scotsman. Just the metamorphosis from Ian Graham to White Bull is already an adventure to experience.
Of course I can’t do that on my own, so I’m working now with a part of you, we call your higher self. It is the all wise, all knowing, all loving part of you and together we combine our love and wisdom to serve you in this moment.’
He asks if I understand. Impressed by this warm bath that surrounds me, I say ‘yes’.
“So, let’s get down to bussinness!”
‘The first question I claim for myself: How are you?’
‘Oooo, I don’t know’, I say with a smile, which confirms my doubt.
‘Oh dear, what is the confusion?’ he asks concerned.
“Sometimes very good, sometimes very bad.”
A cautious way of saying, “Now things aren’t going well at all.” I never say that… The moment when I was suddenly invited to Ian Graham was spectacularly ‘accidental’. He was actually still in England.
I had left his answering machine, because someone had suddenly discovered that he lived in Zutphen and gave me his number. I was curious, because I had read his book with the great title, “God is never too late, but also never too early.” You could call it the Bible of today, you will find so much wisdom in it.
Ian Graham called me one day when I just couldn’t take it anymore. I had a huge problem and I didn’t know how to solve it. And normally I always know how to solve everything, so it made me furious and despondent that this didn’t work.
“So, if things don’t go well, what happens?” asks White Bull lovingly and helpfully.
“Sometimes I don’t know how to solve the problems,” I say.
‘Perhaps that is because the problems are able to solve themselves!’
Ah, I’ve never looked at it that way before.
He continues: “If you have a piece of rope with a knot in it and you try to get that knot out, the knot often pulls tighter. It is best to put it away and then you can go back to it later, then the knot is looser and can be easily unraveled.’ A wisdom to remember daily.
I was given a CD with the entire conversation – lasting about an hour – and every time I listened to it I heard new things. Jokes too, which I hadn’t picked up at all the first time.
White Bull makes you very aware of what your ‘real’ self is and what your ‘inner judge’ is, your ‘false’ self, which is always trying to disrupt things. What I have learned most from White Bull is to trust and listen to my ‘inner voice’. That voice is always there, but it is usually drowned out by (undermining) thoughts.
You will find your own inner voice in the silence, your own silence. Finally I learned to distinguish what ‘mind’ and ‘ego’ are and as soon as you can perceive them, you can also escape from that prison. The ego is afraid of being dismantled and will do everything to keep you small, to frighten and worry. “If you think it is, then it is,” I understood.
The power of thoughts, with which we unconsciously maintain everything. If you think something is unhealthy for you, it is, for example. And: Someone can still eat responsibly and organically, but if you are stressed and are very ‘hyper’ about it, all the healthy food in your body will immediately convert into toxic substances.
It is more important to feel inner peace and tranquility. The great thing is, that’s what you’re bathing in when you’re in the White Bull energy for a while.

What I didn’t know after my first visit is that that energy can also be conveyed through visual material. I had noticed that when I listened to the CD again, that same pleasant, warm energy felt filling the room.
But I only found out later that you could film something like that and pass it on in that way. Ian thought it was a good idea to film White Bull. In several sessions, spread over a year and a half, I did four or five interviews with White Bull. I asked questions, which I suspected would help everyone.
What is God?” for example. “I cannot tell another how he or she should see God. That’s a very personal experience,’ he replied. “But the best way to meet God is to look for it in someone else. He who can see the God in the other also experiences the God in himself.
Always try to see the best in someone else. Your thoughts about others and about the world also have power. Everything is energy. With angry or frustrated thoughts about others or about how the world works, you maintain unwanted situations.
A good example, which did not end up on the DVD, is the story of the man who committed that attack on Queen’s Day. “It’s too easy to condemn all of that,” White Bull said. This person acted – quite unconsciously of course – out of a frustration that was greater than his own alone. He expressed much greater general frustration because he was sensitive to it. We are all responsible for what happens in the world.
When we heal the anger, fear and frustration within ourselves, it also has a greater effect on the world than we think. It is possible and it is not that difficult. “Perfect Love casts out fear,” White Bull says. And ‘Perfect Love’ is what we essentially are.
That’s why I made this DVD. White Bull gives you insights, exercises and guidelines to make it easier. But much more important and more effective: You are taken to that deeper layer within yourself, so that you can feel the peace, tranquility and warmth and that automatically has a transforming effect. White Bull speaks to your heart. You can feel for yourself whether that resonates with your own – deeper – truth.
Ian Graham, White Bull’s Instrument
When I first became acquainted with Ian Graham and the White Bull channeled by him, I was surprised that Ian was called ‘instrument’. That sounded a bit derogatory to me. In an interview with Ian, I asked how that was for him. “Oh, I’m used to it,” he said.
That’s what I am. And you are one. We are all just instruments, if we are really on our path, to serve the highest, we give ourselves over as instruments… for God, for spirits, to act through us. We are all in a way on our path to become instruments of good in the world.’
The rest of the story is even more interesting, because the big advantage of ‘acting as an instrument’ and striving to be as pure and clear as possible is that you are taken care of. Miraculously, Ian has everything he needed to do his job ‘arranged’. The so-called ‘ego-needs’ were for his own account. He could mess with it himself.
