Hypnosis and the Brilliant Light of Healing

Marilyn 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:

Light…contains all the qualities and virtues of God…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 illuminating beams.

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 lies.

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.
