Body of Light Practice

This article was written on March 29, 2010 posted under Gnosticism

In this exercise to awaken the healing power within you, meditate on your body as a source of tremendous energy, seeing it as a great shining star giving light and life to all that surrounds it. The key is to utilize whatever imagery helps you realize your body as an abode of immeasurable energy and resilience, a palace of lights. It is especially powerful to perform this practice out in nature.

In order to strengthen this practice, you may first generate the body of light, and then transform your body of light into the divine image of a partzuf, such as Master Yeshua, Lady Mirya, the Virgin Mother, or St. Raphael. In this way, you may become aware of the innate divinity and wisdom within you, calling it forth to help in your healing work. By generating the body of light and the aura of the healing power, you may transmit the healing power to another person through touch, laying hands upon them as inspired by the light-presence and light-power.

To focus the mind while laying on of hands and calling upon the healing power of divine being, soft chanting of the divine names may be used. Two most commonly used with this practice are IAO and Ya-Ha-Sha-Va-Ha.

Whether performed with oneself or with another person this practice is concluded with praise and thanksgiving and with the generation of the sacred heart, which is accomplished by bringing up feelings of love and compassion, and then sending forth blessings to all beings.
