(from: 'The Heart of Soul Healing', Chapter 28)

One method of spiritual protection commonly taught in the metaphysical community is the use of white light. The thought behind this teaching is that white light both enhances and protects us wherever we go and whatever we do. Many of us have been taught to meditate with white light, heal with white light, and surround ourselves and our loved ones with white light.

Many years ago when I was setting up my own business, I began to pay attention to the emotional and mental patterns of some metaphysical people. I started to notice a disruptive effect from exclusively using white light. Originally, I thought I would prefer to enter into business agreements and patronize vendors owned and run by metaphysical people. I felt that because of their inner work and understanding, metaphysical individuals might be more honest and successful than other people. However, as I started to carefully observe how many of the metaphysical people around me acted, I noticed a large number of them experienced erratic emotional and mental swings over and over again in their lives. As I tried to discover why these experiences were occurring, one major reason kept coming up.

The majority of metaphysical people I observed at that time were exclusively using white light for their practices, meditations, and fields of protection. The exclusive use of white light caused interesting and completely natural phenomena. One of the basic constructs of our third-dimensional world is that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Action and reaction principles are a basic theory explaining polarities. By only using white light to work with, the opposite or polarized forces, black light, would be attracted. Black light is the void. It is the amplification of what we do not love.

Constantly using one side of any polarity causes the user to be pulled back and forth, from one polarity to another, positive to negative, over and over again. Each time we realign ourselves in the polarity of white light, a shift back to its polarized opposite occurs to some degree. The effect would be like going from our most positive actions directly into our worst fears.

For this reason, I have chosen to do all my work, and all my release work, in the Clear Light of Source. The sacred space of Clear Light is one of the most powerful and balanced places we can be, and it does not invoke or trigger polarity energy. Clear Light is in the center between light and dark. It is clear like a diamond is clear.


The use of Clear Light, especially when viewing our lessons, is the truest reflection we can use for ourselves in this dimension.
• Clear Light is the most balanced reflection of Source available to us on this planet.
• Clear Light, because it is balanced and neutral, can safely be brought into our creative space. This allows us to avoid attracting polarities when we surround ourselves with white light, which affects our personal energetic fields. Surrounding ourselves in white light distorts the balance in all areas of our lives.
• Clear Light allows us to remain centered within ourselves.
• Through the uses of Clear Light, we are able to remain balanced. By using Clear Light, we are able to learn from our actions and experiences with increased ease, grace, and gentleness.

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying has a great deal to say about the idea of Clear Light, or as they refer to it, “the Dawning of the Ground Luminosity.” Tibetans state that Clear Light appears where consciousness itself dissolves into the ail-encompassing space of truth.

Padmasambhava, a revered Tibetan, describes the luminosity:

“ This self-originated Clear Light, which from the very beginning was never born ...
This self-organizing wisdom has not been created by anyone...
It has never experienced birth and has nothing in it that could cause it to die...
Although it is evidently visible, yet there is no one there who sees it ...
Although it exists in everyone everywhere, it has gone unrecognized...
Even though it is the thing that is most essentially yours, you seek for it elsewhere,

Buddhist masters describe the state of luminosity, or Clear Light, in various ways. Some say, “... it expresses the radiant clarity of the nature of mind, its total freedom from darkness: free from the darkness of unknowing and endowed with clarity and knowing.” Further descriptions described Clear Light as “... a state of minimum distraction, because all the elements, the senses and sense objects are dissolved.”

The luminosity that arises at death is the natural radiance of the wisdom of our own being, and our true nature is revealed. Ground Luminosity presents itself naturally and many people are unprepared for its short immensity and the range of its vast and subtle layers of depth that lie within its simplicity. Clear Light is the subtlest level of consciousness in the third dimension.

According to the current Dali Lama,

“What provides the continuity between lives is not an entity, but the subtle level of consciousness. The ultimate creative principle is consciousness. There are different levels of consciousness. What we call innermost subtle consciousness is always there. The continuity of that consciousness is almost like something permanent, like the space particles. In the field of matter, we find space particles; in the field of consciousness we find Clear Light. The Clear Light with its special energy makes the connection with consciousness.”
