was born in Chicago, Illinois, to parents of German and
Scottish-Irish-English-Cherokee heritage. When she was 6 years old, her parents
moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, where she attended school and subsequently,
St. Mary’s Junior College. She was graduated from The University of North
Carolina in 1959, with a B.A. in Fine Arts. While there, she began singing and
acting in various productions of the Carolina Playmakers, and was eventually
encouraged to develop her singing voice at the prestigious Juilliard School of
Music, where she was awarded a full scholarship for four years of advanced
study. At the conclusion of her time at Juilliard, she auditioned for and was
accepted into the newly formed Metropolitan Opera National Company, which toured
North America, taking her all over the US and Mexico and Canada.
After the tour, she returned to New York City, and was “discovered” by Marcel
Prawy, a native of Vienna, Austria, who offered her a contract to make her
professional debut at the Volksoper during the Vienna Music Festival of 1967,
singing the role of Marietta/Marie in Korngold’s DIE TOTE STADT. Her first
performance was such an outstanding success that she was immediately engaged by
the Management of the Volksoper for MADAMA BUTTERFLY the following season, and
she went on to sing leading roles at all the major opera houses of Europe. She
made her home while living in Europe in Zurich, Switzerland.
In 1978, she returned to the USA to make her North American debut at the New
York City Opera as Minnie in LA FANCIULLA DEL WEST, and this led to
representation by Columbia Artists, Inc. (Matthew Epstein), and an international
career, first in Australia and subsequently, in South America and Asia, in
addition to singing at all of the USA’s largest opera houses.
She lived abroad during her more than 36-year career, in over 20 countries,
circumnavigating the globe many times over, and meeting people from diverse
cultures. She has always had a deep love of travel and of broadening her
education through languages.

was born during World War II in 1944 in The Netherlands. As a
child he wanted to become the Pope, so at age 11 he went to
Sparrendaal Seminary to become a priest. However, life had other
plans for him. After he had been there for 3 years, his sister
asked him to leave the seminary and return home, because of the
stressful situation there, and so he relinquished his studies to
become a priest.
After his return from the seminary, at age 14, he became aware
of the power of belief, and started using pebbles and stones for
maintaining or regaining health, for succeeding in exams, etc.,
and discovered that the stones facilitated the establishment of
beliefs, which created the desired results. From the time he was
a small boy, he was interested in magical beings and the
supernatural, and, at that time, he held a firm belief that some
of his dreams were more real than his everyday life.
At age 16 he started reading Confucius, Pierre Teilhard de
Chardin, and many books about World Religions, such as Buddhism,
Taoism, Hinduism and the other Eastern Religions. After
completing his education, he had a mandatory tour of duty in the
Army as a Lieutenant of the Dutch Cavalry in a British NATO unit
in Germany. At the end of his Military Service, he married and
started a business career. He then studied actuarial science and
became a business consultant.
Though absorbed by the practicalities of his daily family and
business life, he always found time for his spiritual
development. He read Ayn Rand, Carlos Castaneda and many other
metaphysical books. At the age of 30, he participated in a
month-long training on an estate near Amsterdam of the Human
Potential Movement, led by Richard Peterson.
He started his own International firm, F. J. Baars Consultants
and was co-founder of the Multinational Group of Actuaries and
Consultants. He became a consultant for quite a number of
multinational companies, such as Apple Computer, Tandem
Computer, Akso-Nobel Industries, and many others.
His work as a business consultant was based on his vision that
multinational corporations have to develop from separate
corporations into ORGANS of the larger BODY CORPORATE, which
consists of Human Society and the whole of Planet Earth.
Further, he believes in “Simplex Veri Sigillum” or “Simplicity
is the Seal of Truth”. In his own words: “When the problems in
life become more complex and complicated, solutions must be
found on a more simple level than anticipated.”
In 2002 Frans retired from the business world in order to create
more time for his spiritual development. His spiritual journey
achieved a new dimension in September of that year, when he read
the book “Re-member”, written by Steve Rother and The Group.
This book changed his life forever, as he started attending
seminars given by Steve Rother in Holland. During this period,
he spent 7 weeks in the rainforests of Brazil, where he
experienced the magic of that region, and the healing power of
During a Steve Rother seminar in Holland, he met Ronna Herman,
who channels Archangel Michael. She told Frans that he was a
Lemurian. **(Lemuria was an ancient continent and advanced
civilization in the early times of Earth history. It is
considered by many to have sunk beneath the seas of the Pacific
This information brought him to the 04/04/04 Seminar of Steve
Rother on the Big Island of Hawaii, where he met Marilyn Zschau,
Channel for the Archangels as a Group. A year later, in
September 2005, they were married and Frans moved to the USA
permanently in February 2007.
In 2009, Marilyn and Frans participated for the first time in a
seminar given by James “Tyberonn” Tipton in Galveston, Texas,
after meeting him in 2008 on a rafting trip down the Colorado
River through the Grand Canyon. ‘Tyb’ graciously offered them
the opportunity to present an Archangel Meditation of Healing
during his seminar, and for the first time in public, the
Archangels spoke through Marilyn, saying “At last we have our
The Archangels have told Frans and Marilyn that they are their
Emissaries of Healing Light and Love, and have asked them to
bring these energies to all those who are drawn to receive it.
And so, like the Archangels, Marilyn and Frans have chosen to be
of service to their fellow travelers on Earth and to spread the
Healing Light and Love of the Archangels.
