and the Brilliant Light of Healing
Gordon, BCH, CI
Lead me from darkness into light
Lead me from death to immortality.
From The Upanishads
In Star Wars, Obi Wan Kenobi wielded his
powerful light saber and said to Darth Vader, "Even
if you slay me, I shall still be more powerful than you."
Such is the power of the light. It can be called forth,
visualized, and affirmed, and the more the light is present,
the greater is the force to overcome any darkness.
The essence of transformational hypnosis is the movement
from darkness into light. To be able to bring more light
to your body, your mind and to any situation is to set it
in vibrational harmony with the healing power, the sacred
energy, of the universe. If you are a healing practitioner,
you can ask your client the powerful question, "Can
you bring more light here?" You might phrase it in
other ways: "Can you bring light to this situation
right now? What would it be like if the light surrounded
this issue? What if the light infused this? What if there
were light within and without you?"
Light is a Living Spirit
The great Master Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov has said:
contains all the qualities and virtues of
so concentrate your thought on light, rest in light,
melt into light, soak yourself in light and picture the
entire universe bathed in that light. Little by little as
you do this, you will find that all the elements of your
being begin to fall into place, that this light is bringing
you true knowledge, lasting peace, inner balance and power
Light is a living spirit.
(Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov Light is a Living Spirit;
Editions Prosveta 1988; p.58)
The light within you has profound healing power. You can
imagine the small lonely child inside bathed in a blanket
of light, healed and whole. The little girl who was abused
is cleansed and healed with beams of light. A wound or tumor
can be bathed in light. Even chemotherapy can be perceived
as beams of light that are sending healing rays. Pain can
be infused with light beams, and can melt away. A warring
relationship can be touched with the magic of the light
and transformed. You can shine light on the various "parts"
of self, the inner child, the hurt teen, or any part of
the self that has been hurt or traumatized in any way. When
you shine the light, you give these parts a taste of "enlightenment,"
and you show them that there is another road. They can now
wake up from their worlds of suffering. You can send the
light to another, and you can bathe the entire world in
You may experience the light as gold or white. It may be
a violet light or any of the colors of the Seven Rays, seven
multicolored streams of energy which create all the occurrences
of everyday life. It may come from a beam that originates
in the universe, or it may originate from within. It may
be warm or have no temperature at all. It may just be light.
See it, feel it, know it, and let the light shine on all
the darkness of the universe.
It is no accident that alternative healers who work with
higher vibrations are called "Light Workers."
Many of them have been able to illuminate and heal the deepest
negativities of their souls with light. The thought of light
has the power to heal the mind of profound negativity. It
is more powerful than the forces of the darkness. So when
we concentrate on it and let it shine, we come to know the
luminous presence that is here for us at every moment.
This Little Light of Mine, I'm Going to Let it Shine
The inner light is a microcosmic experience of the great
outer light. We too are embodied versions of the infinite
energy of the universe. We come from this light, and we
return to it after the body is finished with its earthly
work. Connection with the light can cure depression and
many kinds of illnesses. There are various frequencies of
light, which can raise the level of vibration. The more
powerful and positive is our thinking, the greater is the
intensity of the light we emit. And because the light is
electromagnetic by nature, the greater is its ability to
attract to us health, abundance, and happiness when it is
emanating from us in its greatest illumination. Our aura
is made of light, as are our chakras, also called "Wheels
of Light." These energetic aspects of our being react
to feelings and thoughts, and they reflect the state of
our emotional and physical health. Chakras reflect the health
of our love, relationships, communication, creativity and
connection with the Source. When you're illuminated, you
can go beyond mind and thoughts into the infinite and into
the power of healing. Here is where the true power of transformation
The Healing Room of Light
If you'd like to do a special process with a client or with
yourself, you may imagine a healing room of light. There
is golden white light beaming from the ceiling, walls, and
floor. You, your client, or some chosen person may sit in
the center of the room. You can get in touch with current
difficulties, and you bring them forth for the light to
touch and heal. The light beams on you and on the difficulties
(any kind of difficulty - emotional, physical, or mental).
And as the light beams, you experience your vibrational
power increasing, as the light brings you into harmony with
the higher powers.
The Ball of Light
This is a process that has become well-known, originally
brought forth by Israel Regardie in his tiny volume, The
Art of True Healing. You experience a luminescent brilliant
ball of light twirling and rotating through the various
chakras at the base of the spine, the pelvis, the solar
plexus, the chest, the throat, mid-forehead and the top
of the head. As the light vibrates and dances though each
chakra, it clears it and cleanses it and brings it into
harmony with the highest levels.
Bringing More Light to the Darkness of the World
As we know all too well, the earth is going through great
cataclysms. There is great travail in the physical world,
and profound losses are overtaking millions on our planet.
If we look at another side to this story. The world is both
darkness and light, expansion and contraction, yin and yang.
It is fierce and idyllic, blinded by darkness and filled
with eternal light. As we project images of a beautiful
world, so we can send out possibilities for the world's
ultimate transformation even in the face of its difficulties.
There are floods and other great challenges, to all of which
we can send the light.
Naimy, the author of an older obscure book called The Book
of Mirdad, forewarns that there are more floods to come
- great ones. Of these he says, "An earth engulfed
in waters is an earth pregnant with promises of spring."
He says the floods come not to wash out the earth but to
"bring out the heaven in the earth." They come
not to erase human beings but to "uncover God"
in them. Naimy says that human beings will go "into
the forge" as humans, but they'll emerge as gods. He
counsels us to be ready and to prepare to bring light to
the darkness. He says, "You must be ever luminous that
you may guide the walkers in the dark."
The message is ultimately hopeful, and the work to be done
is clear. Beyond the dualities of darkness and light is
a world of supreme perfection and brilliant light. Let's
go there in our minds and in our hearts and bring healing
wherever there is need.
