White Light? Is it the right light?


Prism

The universal panacea of the spiritual movement. It can do all and everything! Well, maybe not.

Like many spiritual concepts and tools it can get over used, mis-used or lost in translation. Don’t get me wrong it should be in your spiritual and energetic toolbox but use it wisely.

Firstly, what is it? And here comes problem number one. Different people see it as different things. Hence the word universal in the opening line. Ask yourself what is it to you, do you even know? Are you, in fact, using it because someone else told you to.

For me, white light is a definite energy. It comes from and is part of the Spirit realm. Please note, the Spirit realm and the Universe are two different things. The Spirit realm is the plane of existence where your Soul comes from and will return to. It is pure energy, with no matter. This is where Spirit reside in pure conscious energetic form.

White light is the substance that binds them together, exists in space between them and is of them. Their collective energy if you like. It can be sent by them to assist us. Or we can call it in as we are part Spirit. White light is pure and clear.

We can use white light for healing, clearing, expanding or as part of the opening up process. As the prism shows, white light can be split into the various colours. This is what it does when healing but in reverse, where it brings dis-harmonious energy back into alignment as one harmonious energy.

Common mis-uses of white light

1. Protection

I often come across people who are protecting themselves with white light. Surrounding their aura with it. However, the is not protective. In fact is can create the opposite effect. Negativity is attracted to the light, not repelled by it. Bit like a moth to the flame. If you want to use a coloured light for protection try dark blue. My favourite visualisation and the one I share with my clients and students is to imagine the outside of your aura as mirrored (think 1970’s Disco Ball). Negativity is reflected away from you by the mirror.

2. Grounding

Often students use white light when they are grounding – seeing their roots as white, or the energy of Mother Earth as white or indeed even bringing white light down from the Spirit through the crown chakra and then into the Earth. White light is weightless. When we use the word Light it is in both senses of the word – luminous and weight. Where white light is faster moving than we are it can in fact unground you rather than ground. I encourage my students to consider their base chakra also known as the root chakra – what colour is it? Red. It is called the root chakras as this is the where you ground from. Therefore, using the colour red for your roots and the energy of Mother Earth coming back into you is more grounding than white.

3. Crown Chakra

Another problem I find is that students don’t know the colours of the chakras. Many times they say their crown chakra is white. No, it is violet. When you envisage your crown chakra as white you are in effect over stimulating it which can lead to you being too open and struggling with clarity. If you look at the colours of the chakras there is a logical order – based around how colours merge – Red & Yellow makes Orange, Yellow & Blue makes Green, Blue & Violet makes dark blue – think back to the prism.

Some good uses for white light-

1. Washing through your aura

2. Washing through a chakra (or all of them)

3. Cleansing a space or object 

4. Balancing your own energy (for instance you have too much physical energy or red energy and need to lighten up). 

5. Cleansing and charging crystals 

6. Lifting the mood in a room or space where it has got too heavy

White Light is combination of all colours, as we see colour. Don’t forget all the other colours; they are equally useful and potent. Blue and Green are very healing and calming. Pink can help with giving and receiving love (especially for self). Yellow can strengthen your free will and confidence. Orange can assist with emotions and creativity. Violet is good for Spirit communication.

When cleaning your chakras using the colour associated with that chakra is often more suitable than using white. Remember white is very fast moving and can create expansion. Your chakra might need calming rather than stimulating. When grounding you might brown for your roots more soothing than red, especially if you are very connected to nature.

We live in a world of colour. So don’t be monochrome when working with Spirit and Spirituality. We are Spirit but we are also human and our body is physical matter. Physical matter resonates with colour. If we over use white light we will run the risk of devaluing it or neutralising it. We can become complacent.

Keep white light in your toolbox along with all the other colours. Use your own instincts as to what colour to use. Ask your Spirit Guides or Soul if you are unsure. Then when you do use white light it will be all the more poignant.

Honouring the Sacral Chakra (Channelled by Spirit)


As a teacher, it is part of my job to challenge my students, not only in how they think but also in the ways they work with Spirit. Once such challenge is getting them to think outside the box and to stimulate interaction with Spirit that does not engage their thought processes or ego.

Many years ago I came across a second-hand book called GaiaStar Mandalas by Bonnie Bell and David Todd. The minute I opened the book my mind was full of ideas and ways to use these amazing pictures. Of course, I purchased the book which included page after page of richly coloured stunning mandalas made from natural materials; such as leaves, petals and feathers.

Once home I asked the book for permission to take it apart so I could use each image on its own; I then proceeded to delicately cut the book up using a scalpel. I now use these wonderful images to as inspirations for connection with Spirit and Self, as well as topics and ideas for them to speak or write about.

In a recent automatic writing class, I asked my students to work with the images and we got some lovely pieces of writing. Often when my students write I do too – below is the piece Spirit wrote via me inspired by the books cover.

Hope you enjoy.

Ecstatic Visions of the Living Earth. By Bonnie Bell and David Todd

 

” Orange – pulsing life – radiating joy and abundance – strong yet gentle – beating and retreating the playful journey through life.

Beating a path, then retreating to see your creation. Creation and growth. Stimulating. Developing. Transforming. Life has many variations. Many layers and transitions. The sacral chakra holds emotional energy, it speaks the emotive language. Translating that into physical sensations and urges as well as thoughts and ideas.

You are emotional beings. Embrace the idea. Embrace your emotional side and feel the flow of it through your physical body. The shudders that come with laughter and tears. The ripples and butterflies that come with pleasure and love.

Your mind will always aim to translate these sensations, to rationalise and analyse. But do not be lead by that. It is only a variation of the experience. It is not the whole story.

Emotions do not rule you. Your soul governs your learning and path and the emotions are its tools, theories, concepts, perspective and language. The soul knows how to flow through the emotional landscape. Better than your mind, more clearly than your body. They are both one-sided in their view of emotions and applications.

Through the cohesion of all the soul has a rich canvas on which to paint and explore. Which in turn enriches and deepens the learning. Each emotion adding a colour or texture to the piece. The masterpiece that you call your life.

It is an important chakra and colour. Yet you work so little with either. Or so you think. How many sunsets have you watched? All those deep oranges seeping into your energy. How many tears have you shed cleansing your emotional self as it passes through the phases of learning? How many nights spent reviewing your life, letting your mind and ego judge your emotional learning.

You choose so many ways to see yourself. But few honour your emotions. You judge being emotional as weak. We say it is not. We remind you it is powerful, insightful and needed. Your soul is grateful for every emotion experienced and felt. We say to you be the same. Rejoice in them, respect them and appreciate them more. With that comes greater learning and understanding. Not only for your soul but for humanity.

Surrounding you in the warmth of orange. We leave you with deep felt blessings. ”

Trance Mediumship Tip: Breathe


Breathe

I am often asked “what can I do to prepare for trance mediumship?”, many assume meditation is a good practice but actually that is not often the case. A better place to start is with the breath. Spirit use the breath as a conduit and support structure when they are blending with medium. If the breath is short and shallow, the blending will be also. Learning how to breathe deeply using the diaphragm and the full capacity of your lungs will enable Spirit to blend deeper with you and stay longer.

A lot of the work now is channelling rather than trance as this is often easier for Spirit and the vessel but it does have its downsides. Trance work has less room for interference but also requires more training and dedication to the craft. No short cuts or instant options here. Preparation of self is vital and being one with your own body and breath is a great beginning.

Practicing deep breathing will create a better place for Spirit as well as a more secure place for yourself as is centres you and creates calmness. Try to breath in your through your nose and out through your mouth – this helps the trance work later on when Spirit try to speak.

Finally deep breathing helps support your voice which is an essential part of trance mediumship.

Energy balancing continued …


Hi all,

I am still recovering from the effects of being ill in August and the on-going work needed to get back into energetic balance. At the moment my focus is on that fact that I am not grounded. Well, to be fair compare to many I am very grounded but compared to my usual self I am not. With my students we play a game about grounding where they give each other a score out of 10 (1 being not grounded at all and 10 being very grounded). It is good fun as it makes them connect to what being grounded feels like but also looks like.

Usually when we play this game my score is above 10, as my students recognise that I am very grounded indeed. However, at the moment my score is only 8. You might be thinking well I’d settled for an 8, but for me this is uncomfortable. I know I am not as grounded as I can be or like to be.

So I have put my attention into grounding more and working deeper with my connection to Mother Earth when I ground. At the moment my physical body is also no helping as it has reacted to me not being grounded by inflaming my achilles tendon in my right foot; which makes walking a problem and running for the bus an absolute no. Those of you who know about the energy of the body will be saying – ah thats a problem with walking your physical journey – well yes it is. My body wants to rest and do nothing else but my work commitments mean I need to strike a balance which I am not succeeding in doing. Let’s just call it a work in progress.

Being ungrounded for me, also means my attention span and concentration are not at their best, so I have to work twice as hard to achieve the same result as usual. Frustrating to say the least. But at least I recognise the problem. Many people are ungrounded and don’t realise that is what the problem is. When my students start working with me and we cover grounding they are often quite self assured that they are grounded and everything is fine. But once we do the exercise and they feel the difference there is a shift in them. After a few weeks, when they have been grounding daily as their homework, the shift can be quite dramatic. A simply five minute a day visualisation to root and anchor yourself really does have a huge effect.

My parting thought for today is – Are you Grounded?

Recovering from Surgery – The energy battle begins!


Dear Friends,

Some of you may have read my latest newsletter and know that I am currently recovering from surgery and the added complication of anaphylactic shock which has left me shatter and batter. It will take sometime for my body, at a physical level, to recover. The surgery is what they call “blunt force” so my shoulder feels like it has gone six rounds with Mike Tyson and for the first few weeks looked like it too. The anaphylactic shock also knocks your body systems around and has completely wiped out the last ten years of resistance building, so I am now hyper-sensitive to all my allergens and then some.

Putting the physical trauma aside, I am also dealing with energetic trauma on ever single layer of my being. Any of you who work with Spirit will know that hospitals, in general, have a terrible energy about them and understandably so, but that does affect you when you are there. Normally if I am visiting a hospital my defences protect me from anything, but of course when you are ill they tend drop or at least get a bit shaky. So whilst in the hospital, when I could I focused on my protection and repelled as much negativity as I could. I also talked to my Spirit Guides as much as possible and kept my intentions clear as to my desired outcome.

Sounds good, and in practice after the surgery I left the hospital clear of any negativity. However, my life path had others ideas and the anaphylactic shock challenged even my focus and intentions. For those of you, who might not know, anaphylactic shock kills within 20-25 minutes unless treated, you suffocate or have a heart attack. Treatment is an adrenaline injection. Oh yes, I had to inject myself. What fun! Panic, which is inevitable in these circumstances, wiped out my clarity, protection and positive thinking; leaving me more vulnerable than usual. Fortunately my protection held and when I was able I focused on my Aura again and shielded myself.

This leaves me with the energetic damage; the surgery; the shock the body experiences having the surgery under a local; the allergic reactions; the various and many drugs taken; and finally but not least the emotional trauma. As spiritual workers we understand about protection and grounding and the need to keep out energy clear but we often do not speak about the impact of ill-health, medication and medical treatment. Synchronicity has played an interesting role as only a few months ago Master Chou did a pod-cast on Health & Healthcare, in which he yet again mentioned the combination of medical and spiritual treatments and how they compliment each other and improve recovery. Sure enough a few days after being released from hospital I went to see a Spiritual Healer (Martha Brett, a great friend and great healer) and had an hour long session. After which I felt so much better.

Martha, told me something I did know but relates to this need to combine treatments, she mentioned that general anaesthetic lingers in the energetic bodies for up to a year and the local I had been given could linger for several months.  That is not a reason not to have these things but it is a reason to augment your recovery with Spiritual Healing (or a form of energy healing). The difference in how I felt after one session was ten fold and I will probably have more sessions over the next few months.

We underestimate the impact of daily life on our Energetic System, let alone the trauma of any kind of illness and its treatments. Our Energy System is usually the last to get dealt with, if it ever does. So over the next few months I will writing about my journey to balance and heal my energy and integrate my pacemakers energetic signature into mine. I am hoping to add some exercises and thoughts for anyone who is interested in energy work or harmonising their own energy.

More thoughts to come soon.
