Working With Light

Aivanhov 3.jpg

This is a simple but profound exercise that can change your life very rapidly:

“Try to acquire the taste for working with the light: not just with sunlight but also with this invisible light that imbues all of creation, for only the light can re-establish order in you, can make all your cells vibrate in harmony and restore your health. It is light that possesses the greatest powers on the physical plane, just as on the psychic plane. It’s not perhaps the fastest method, but its effects are permanent.

Think of the light more than you think of anything else in your life, for the extreme subtlety of its vibrations takes us closer to the world of the spirit. For at least a few minutes each day, think only of light and nothing else. It will be like a beam of pure particles passing through you. This beam will become so powerful it will touch all creatures on earth and awaken their divine nature.”

–Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov (Bulgarian Spiritual Master, 1900-1986)   

Light Is the Source

“We respond to Light so naturally because Light is the source. Light is the Universal Mother. It feeds our body. It feeds our mind. It feeds our soul.”   

–Henryk Skolimowski (Polish-born Philosopher, Writer and Poet, 1930-)   

Seeing the Supreme

“And this is the true end set before the soul, to take that light, to see the Supreme by the Supreme and not by the light of any other principle – to see the Supreme which is also the means to the vision, for that which illumines the soul is that which it is to see, just as it is by the sun’s own light that we see the sun.”           

–Plotinus (Egyptian-born Roman Philosopher and Founder of Neo-Platonism, A.D.205-270)

“The Soul Afire: Revelations of the Mystics” (Hans Ansgar Reinhold)

Awareness of a Dark Age

“An age is called “dark,” not because the light fails to shine but because people refuse to see it.”

–James A. Michener (American Writer, 1907-1997)

Sources of Light

“The light in the world comes principally from two sources, —the sun, and the student’s lamp.”    

–Christian Nestell Bovée (American Lawyer and Writer, 1820-1904)

“Gentleness, tenderness, caring deeply – these are the ways, however humble, by which the very best in a person’s life can shine forth.”  

–Geoffrey Hodson (English-born New Zealand Theosophist, Mystic, Teacher and Author, 1886-1983)

Following the Light


“Follow the light where it leads, and do not underestimate the possibilities and resources in this human life that each one of us has been privileged to be given.”           

–Huston Smith (Chinese-born American Religious Studies Scholar and Emeritus Professor at Syracuse University, 1919-)

Your Inner Light

“On this point of the Light phenomenon, the Russian Orthodox Church writer Bishop Brianchaninov explains that it is a spiritual light which is seen inwardly but that it may also be seen physically at times. He considers it identical with the Holy Spirit, and that it reveals the reality of that Spirit while sanctifying the person.”           

–Paul Brunton (a.k.a. Raphael Hurst, English Philosopher, Traveler, Spiritual Teacher and Author, 1898-1981)   

Lit By Consciousness

“When one feels really out of sorts, queasy, helpless, unable to breathe to move, to think or do anything — and suddenly consciousness – the vibration of love comes in the body – consciousness for a split second – Everything lights up.”          

–The Mother of Pondicherry (a.k.a. Mirra Alfassa, French-born Indian Spiritual Teacher, 1878-1973)

Divine Light


“Divine light is instantly present the second we slip into darkness.”

–Caroline Myss (American Medical Intuitive, Mystic and Author, 1952-)
