OUR LUMINOUS LEGACY
I stood facing a forest in my shamanic journey. A bit to my left was an open door with light pouring from it. A shadowed woman beckoned to me to enter. I did. It was a Chamber of Radiant Beings. I was invited into the center and light radiated toward me from everyone in the circle. I stood there and welcomed and accepted the healing and wholing.
The Chamber of Radiant Beings is in my inner world, my Sacred Garden within. It’s a place I continue to go to heal and balance and join with other light beings for the well-being of the world. You, too, are invited. Or you can manifest your own Circle of Light Beings.
When I first joined an internally visual community like this, it was in an online course on shamanism. The leader took us on an inner journey by simply describing what we saw and who we met.
In her version, there was a doorway and a large room and an altar with prayer bowls and incense and we, as an international community connected energetically by her words, whenever we listened to them, were all invited to take part. We could offer our talents as gifts. We could leave prayer requests. We could offer our prayers for others. There was a crystal image of the world in the center and we were invited to send energy to it. Anytime. From any place.
There was a defining feeling of being joined energetically with people all over the world who wanted to heal the planet and help the world. I was no longer alone in my small corner of the world. I was connected to many, many, many people focused on the same thing. Wholeness for us all.
Begin by creating a reflective place in your own inner Sacred Garden. You can make your inner contemplation area any way you wish. I prefer to think of a focused area for blessings as a mesa, which is the shamanic term. When I created my own mesa in my imagination, it was in the sunny meadow of my Sacred Garden, which is my starting place for all my shamanic journeys.
The focus for my reflection consists of one large flat rock sitting on three low pillar-shaped rocks. There is not one incense holder or prayer bowl in sight. Just the rock in the meadow ready for however I choose to use it. But that’s my version. Make your sacred inner space exactly what you want or need it to be.
I go to my Chamber of Radiant Beings for nurturing, for healing, for guidance. But most of all we join together to radiate our light, the one light, into the world to bring about healing and balance and peace and safety.
Each element of your Sacred Garden is a part of you. As you change it changes. It is filled with metaphors only you can interpret.
I visited my Chamber of Radiant Beings on quite a few journeys before these Beings metaphorically came out of the Chamber to be with me in the open meadow of my Sacred Garden.
It’s your chamber. Create it the way you need and want it to be, place in it whoever needs to be there and in whatever form they seem to want to be for you. Then use your Chamber of Light as you will.
Whether I’m working in the Chamber or in the meadow, sometimes I’m in the center receiving the light energy. Sometimes I’m in the circle surrounding someone to offer healing and support, and other times we are simply joining together to heal the world.
I do not see anyone I know from the physical plane. Nor do I see mythical gods and goddesses. I see radiant light beings in service. The leader, the female figure who beckoned me in, eventually gave me her identity, but for several journeys, all I knew was this – she was the spiritual leader. As my journeys progressed, sometimes I was the leader. Sometimes I was the receiver of the focused light and sometimes a participant shining my own light.
Go with what you find. Explore what’s offered. Interact with whoever shows up. Remember, everything in the Sacred Garden, in this Chamber of Light is a reflection of you. It changes as you change.
When you leave the chamber, the circle, create some kind of blessing. It may be a bow. It may be a hand over your heart. It may be blowing a blessing through your fingers. Create a sign of closure. And gratitude. Bless all you see. Thank them for being present. And depart. Back to your Sacred Garden. And then back to consciousness.
Your Chamber of Radiant Beings is a refuge. A place to heal and restore. A place to do your sacred work. Make it look and feel and be like anything you want.
Because there are millions of people all over the planet doing inner healing work in a similar fashion, you can meet with others on the inner plane.
Your Chamber of Radiant Beings is a workplace. It’s a gathering of other radiant beings to heal and preserve our planet earth. To heal and support each other. Create your own ceremonies. Use this room as a healing space. If you wish a healing for someone, in your imagination create a way to do that – a name placed in a blessing bowl, the light of the person in the center with light radiating toward it. Whatever your imagination invites you to do.
It all involves light. Light is all we are. Light is the power. Light is our collective oneness.
Process for finding your own Circle of Radiant Beings
- In a quiet place, set an intention to join with the group of light beings that best serve your soul’s purpose. A name may come to you. Call it that.
- Go to your Sacred Garden, the place in your imagination where you begin your journeys, and simply be. Look around your garden. State your intent to be joined with your own circle of light for the purpose of healing and wholing. See what shows up. Is it inside or outside? Who is there? What are they doing? These images are metaphors that have meaning for you. Invite them to reveal themselves to you. Explore and experience. If it doesn’t happen today, journey again tomorrow. Trust what shows up.
- You may find light beings in many different forms – people, animals, plants, waterfalls, volcanoes, oceans, mythical gods and goddesses. Whatever is present, the message is for you. Look, observe, feel and participate. Ask for greater clarity if you need it.
- Offer thanks when you leave.
- When you return to full consciousness, journal to capture your experience and interpret what you were shown. The inner world speaks in metaphors for each of us to interpret for ourselves. If the message is not clear, ask your helping spirits to clarify.
Work with this inner place of light often. Call it whatever you want. See it however you see it. Let your experience expand. Place yourself in the center. Place someone else in the center. Place the world in the center.
Join with Other Light Beings to Heal the World
As I continued to journey, I sought to expand my participation in helping the world – the environment, the people, its future. One day, after setting that intention for my journey, the members of my Chamber of Radiant Beings took me to join in the Circle of Light Beings which is how I see all the transformation visionaries in the world and we joined with others to lift the consciousness of our world. Again, name it what calls to you.
Here is my journey to the planetary encompassing Circle of Light Beings as I experienced it and journaled it:
I’m standing with the Radiant Beings I’ve been working with and we’ve now joined a large Circle of Light Beings. Since there’s no time in the inner world, you may join us. We stand in a circle. As fellow Light Beings join us, they simply put their hands on our shoulders. And when the circle seems full, another layer is added, with more hands on the shoulders of the Light Being in front of them.
In the center, we can place anything we wish and it’ll receive this full power of the ever-expanding Circle of Light Beings. For now, let’s begin by placing the planet in the center. Embrace her in unconditional love, the deepest respect, and honoring her great spirit. We send her unconditional love. Can you imagine what it will feel like to Earth to receive the unconditional love of all of us, all the Light Beings in this radiant, radiating circle?
As we stand in this ever-growing circle of light, we personally receive this wholing light energy. It balances and cleanses and heals without being told what to do, for it is wholeness and wholeness is perfect.
Feel yourself as a Light Being standing in a circle with your hands on the shoulders of the Light Being in front of you, radiating light out into the world. You feel a hand on your shoulder as another Light Being joins in the Circle of radiating and expanding light. Feel the power magnify. Feel the wholeness. Absorb it and add your ever-increasing light energy to it.
Anytime you want to refocus the group energy you can. If you want to picture a particular situation in the middle of our Circle of Light, do so. It can be a person, a situation, a place. Our collective light energy will cover it all. Your choice, your direction, like shining a spotlight on whatever you choose.
Notice your breath. It is slow and deep and replenishing as you stand with other Light Beings and offer your light to the world.
You can join in the Circle of Light Beings any time and put into the center anything you wish, knowing fully that this group energy is now focused on it.
We do not and will not focus on anything negative. We support only the higher vibrations so we cannot be manipulated or fooled. We see only light and we recognize only light and we send only light. All of us. Individually and collectively.
When you feel complete, leave a part of your light body there, letting it continue to send focused light energy and return to your bodysuit. Know that you can return in an instant to increase your energy in this powerful Circle of Light and place whatever you wish in the center so it will receive the combined energy of this ever-expanding Circle of Light.
You are a Light Being. As are we all. Knowing that and acting upon it is exceedingly powerful.
A Mudra for the Physical Plane
As a physical plane reminder of the Circle of Light when I’m in the ordinary world, I use a simple mudra of holding my bent thumb in the first two fingers of my left hand and mindfully send energy to the Circle of Light. You can use any physical plane reminder you choose.
Wherever you are when you’re called to send wholing light to a situation or a person, simply set the intention, enclose your thumb with your fingers and let that represent the Circle of Light Beings surrounding your intention. You can sit anywhere at any time and send energy anywhere and everywhere. And you can send energy without the mudra.
Use this mudra when you come up against some anger. Use this when you are feeling tired and need to be replenished and restored. Use it when you see a situation where you’d like to see a shift toward inclusiveness. Use either thumb. It’s the intention that counts.
You can also breathe down on the enclosed thumb and let that healing breath move down into the Center of the Circle of Light in the inner plane. This is your reminder, your intention. Form it any way you choose.
Notice how the energy changes. And how rapidly.
If you’re in a position to close your eyes, do so and feel the light radiating out from you, merging and blending and enhancing the light of the fellow Light Beings around you. Feel the light increase and encompass. And spread.
When you go to sleep, place yourself in the center of the Circle of Light for the entire night!
Welcome to the Circle of Light Beings!!!
