I seem to be just waiting! Is there anything I can do during these times of upheaval, fear and terrorism?
I like to have your help in better understanding the concept of past/present/future time. I have had visions where a part of me was living in a dimension where time and space did not exist. In my visions, I have seen life in past times, as well as in the future. It seems to me that what IS happening in the past, and what IS happening in future, IS actually happening in the present in other dimensions.
Correct me if I am wrong...my opinion regarding our roles here is that some souls have been assigned to play certain roles (their destiny) even before they are born into this Earth plane. So, is free will operating here?

Questions related to Lightarian Programs:
Q: How long will the clearing process be for the Clearing Ray?
A: The "clearing process" stimulated by the Lightarian attunements with Ascended Master El Morya can be ongoing as clearing work is cyclical. Based on experiences reported by clients and students, the dramatic etheric clearing work is accomplished certainly within the first year, with lesser degrees of etheric clearing going on for longer periods and perhaps "forever, to some degree." There is always refinement and “polishing” work going on as we all work our way back to the Divine. It is important to note...as the clearing work progresses along, generally the individual makes major improvements in his/her mental, emotional and physical well-being. Also, the clearing and healing processes for the individual tend to be handled more gracefully, efficiently and effectively than at earlier times in their life. All in all, the overall clearing and healing process brings the person to a much higher vibrational state, even though the overall process may indeed last a long time.
Now, there is another aspect of clearing and releasing that is based on the difference between "etheric" clearing work compared to "physical body" clearing work. The Lightarian Clearing Ray focuses on etheric clearing work...stimulated and guided by El Morya working with you after the attunements. This work is designed to release adverse and undesired etheric patterns that exist in your chakras and subtle bodies...from very high locations in your energy fields down to the etheric level just above your physical body. All of this etheric releasing eventually creates significant physical healing for the body...but it does not do the whole job of physical body clearing. That's where further understanding is needed and a different approach is required. The physical body stores energy patterns deeply within the physical structure of the cells, organs and systems of the body. This a "groove" pattern and the releasing of adverse patterns of this type is referred to as "ungrooving."
Q: One of my students reported that some of the AngelLink attunements feel far more "powerful" than the others. Can you explain why she is experiencing this difference in her attunements?
A: A recipient's perception and experience of each attunement will indeed vary...both in its intensity and the quality of the "presence" felt in physical terms. However, during the attunement, the etheric connection being made with the angelic energy will essentially be the same deep, permanent connection each time...regardless of the physical plane perceptions of the recipient. Therefore, depending upon the etheric make-up of each person's fields.... and what they may need in the moment....the experiences of the attunements can be quite variable. For some, an attunement may be more ethereal and have a higher vibrational feel to it...and therefore be perhaps less of a "touchy, feely" experience in physical terms. As an example, for those recipients who are more mental in nature, they may not feel a physical impact of Archangel Uriel's attunement as greatly as for the attunement with Archangel Raphael. Since Uriel's focus is on "beauty", there is a definite difference in the "feel" of the attunement compared to Raphael's - which has the more grounded themes of "courage" and "healing". Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that each person's experience of an attunement will always be unique and therefore might vary greatly from those experienced by others.
Q: Please tell me your opinion about re-attunement for the Lightarian modalities.
A: One of our mottoes here at the Lightarian Institute is..."Once attuned, always attuned!" So, we have never been guided or inspired to provide the same attunement repeatedly for an individual. Actually, our sense is that every Lightarian attunement is a complete, one-way door-way experience into a new connection with the particular Master or Angelic energy involved. These connections foster the building of a relationship between the celestial being and the individual which is non-reversible and remains ongoing...thus the idea of the one-way doorway.
So, we never suggest or even hint that re-attuning or multiple attunements are needed in order to fulfill the fundamental purpose of the work. By setting this intention for the irrevocable nature of the connection, we feel that self-doubts dissolve and the space is free for the building of relationship between the recipient and the Master or Angelic energy...regardless of how things may look at any given time. In this way, second-guessing is eliminated and a sense of "Oh, I must be back-sliding!" or the idea of "Oh, I've lost it!" is not stimulated.
Through all our years of attunement work we have found this operating principle..."Once attuned, always attuned."...to be a foundational part of the various Lightarian modalities.
Q: You use the terms celestial energy and etheric beings quite frequently in your Lightarian training manuals and booklets. Please explain the difference.
A: We use the term "etheric beings" and "celestial energies" somewhat interchangeably, especially when we are describing those beings operating at higher vibration levels...such as the Ascended Masters, the Angelic Beings, Maitreya, Source and Godhead energies, etc...who work with us during the Lightarian attunements. From our perspective, etheric beings would be the entire, broad spectrum of those that are simply not of this physical realm, while the celestial energies would be at the higher end of that spectrum. So, you could say it this way...all celestial energies are etheric in nature, but not all etheric beings are celestial!
Q: Related to the topic of manifestation, especially as embodied in the Lightarian Manifestation Ray, what do you mean by the term "future role?"
A: From our perspective, the term "future role" is about how each of us will be active in this physical plane during the "coming times" that are approaching quite rapidly. Naturally, when using the term "future role", we include the idea that more and more of our soul and higher-self energies will be "operating through" our physical bodies as the personal and global ascension process accelerates. So, "future role" will be the role that the "whole of you" will be manifesting in the physical here on Earth in the coming times!
Q: What is the difference between the Lightarian Healing Ray and Lightarian Reiki, since they both have a focus on healing and both connect with Ascended Master Buddha?
A: The difference between these two forms of Lightarian energy work is primarily about the different basic function and purpose for each one. Lightarian Reiki is principally about expanding your abilities as a Reiki Teacher and Practitioner to channel healing energies of a higher vibrational nature for the benefit of others. Of course, because of the expanded connection that you would have with Ascended Master Buddha, you will also personally benefit in your own healing process, while raising your personal vibration as you step through the various levels of the program. So, Lightarian Reiki is primarily about making you a better channel for healing energies, so that you can assist your clients more effectively with their personal healing.
On the other hand, the Healing Ray is primarily about passing an attunement connection (with Ascended Master Buddhic) to clients in order to have Master Buddha work with them "in their etheric background" to support their personal healing. With the Healing Ray you can also train and attune others (as your own students) to be able to do the same. As you receive the Healing Ray, Buddha will work with you personally to stimulate healing at all levels within your own fields. Ascended Master Buddha came forth with the Healing Ray for those individuals who weren't trained in the more formal Buddhic healing energies of Reiki, so that his healing work can be further shared around the globe in another way. So, the Lightarian Healing Ray is primarily about passing a Buddhic attunement to others (both clients and students), so that Buddha can work directly with them.
Q: What is the difference between the Clearing Ray and the Lightarian Clearing program?
A:The Clearing Ray is a simple attunement that supports the process of the Lightarian Ray program. Perhaps you are already familiar with the Empower, Clear, Heal, Activate, Manifest and Source Rays. This program is the first of the Ascended Master track. Once complete with this program, some want laser-like, deeper work that the six focused Lightarian Clearings offer.
Q:We frequently receive questions about the pace for doing the five Lightarian Rays...generally focusing on how fast can they be done! Recently, a Teacher asked about doing them all in just a few days.
A: Sounds like a bit of a heavy schedule...we suggest that you and the student examine the intent of doing it that way. We'd say that most students desire to have some degree of "a sense of the unfolding process." With that in mind, 7 days between Rays allow for integration time and offers a "workable basic formula."
Q. Could you talk about the different roles and purposes of the Angels and Ascended Masters?
A: The Angels and Ascended Masters have both different roles and different goals. This is based on fundamental differences in the energies of each kind of celestial being. Because of the basic energetic differences, the nature and patterns for service by each of these two realms are very different; however, they do overlap somewhat because they both incorporate many of the same Divine Virtues. Although both Realms embody both feminine and masculine energies, we see the Ascended Masters biased toward the masculine, assertive side of the spectrum and the Angelic Realms biased toward the feminine. From this general perspective, the Ascended Masters can be more assertive, stimulative and focused in their work with humans, while members of the Angelic Realms can be more supportive and nurturing. For example, in the Clearing Ray, Ascended Master El Morya's role is like a medical doctor, more specifically like a surgeon doing laser-surgery regarding the releasing of old etheric patterns, while the Angels, to continue the analogy, would be like the nurses, focused on being helpful and supportive. Their roles would be very different, yet complementary.
Q: Is it important to use Roman numerals for Lightarian Reiki levels?
A: We have occasionally noticed the use of the regular Arabic numerals (1&2, 3, 4, 5&6) by Teachers in describing the levels of Lightarian Reiki. In order to avoid confusion...the four levels of Lightarian Reiki should always be shown as I & II, III, IV and V & VI whenever you are describing Lightarian Reiki on your websites, in your promotional materials and even in your day-to-day correspondence and emails. Thank you for staying with this practice, so that there can be no mis-understandings about the Lightarian Reiki energy work.
General Spiritual Subjects:
Q: What is the difference between density and dimension – are they the same?
A: There is a difference between “density” and “dimension” – many people confuse them. Density refers to the etheric vibrational frequency spectrum, organized into various bands or octaves over which all existence is experienced. "Density" denotes a vibrational frequency, not to be confused with "a location in time and space" which the term "dimension" traditionally implies. All forms of energy have a particular range of vibrational density or frequency - minerals, plants, animals, humans, extraterrestrials, celestial Beings, etc. Density bands describe a range of frequencies...for example, the 4th band of density ranges from 4.0 to 4.99, the 5th from 5.0 to 5.99 and so on. As examples, current human physical bodies function in the 3rd and 4th density bands. Ascended Masters function in 9th, Maitreya functions in 10th, and Universal Source functions in 11th.
Q: Whenever I make my will heard, things get messed up. Why? What is this supposed to be all about? To become a wallflower and submissive? To suppress my will? Then why have a personality? If we are supposed to just wait and allow God's will to go through us, then why have a personality?
A: Wow, quite the tricky series of questions...perhaps this series of comments will be helpful! And please remember this is only our "take" on such complex issues.
It seems to us that there is a delicate balance that we are all trying to achieve....all related to when to act (the doing of life)and when to not act (the being of life) - and how to go about taking action when we choose to do so. Appropriate, conventional wisdom would recommend that we all operate willfully (when we choose to act) with firm, calm conviction and genuine intent to have everyone and everything about the particular situation achieve a win/win outcome. The sort of thing you experienced is simply an example of what is ongoingly experienced in the world at the level of individuals, groups and even countries.
Regarding personality.... Our take on this, from a more spiritual perspective, is that our "sense of personality" is actually (and always) a composite of higher and lower aspects of the individual playing out in varying scenarios and various times. Perhaps driven by deep, old fear patterns related to survival and money issues for you, you just played out a bit more of the lower vibe aspect of yourself and a bit less of the higher vibe aspect - all in the interest of fine-tuning and clearing more and more aspects of this issue from your grooved-in physical patterns. We always talk about how more Light is working into and through us during these times of planetary transformation, but nothing is ever continuously one way or another. We are constantly learning how to balance the new lighter aspects of ourselves with the older residual patterns that are "eventually being replaced." So, when a challenging situation arises, we simply get to see how much Light we are prepared to fully express into that situation....and we get to learn more about ourselves in the process. It will be quite some time before any of us will be empowered enough, cleared enough and healed enough to bring forth 100% Higher Self and 0% lower aspects...if ever!?! So...it seems to us that we are generally operating in this plane with a varying mix of our self energies...with the ratio highly dependent on the remaining deep, old patterns that are still not cleared. I see it as "little self" and "greater Self" operating together to one degree or another.
As you allow more of your Higher Self's will to operate through you, it doesn't mean you just sit back and do nothing. To us it means that you engage life more smoothly, with more grace...knowing when to act and how to act...and usually discovering that you acted in a more aware manner without being in "automatic"...manifesting greater effectiveness and compassion, too. So when one is confused with what "little self" should be doing, it helps to ask what would "greater Self do" in a situation.
You asked..."Why have a personality then?" Well, we'd answer..."It seems to be the only game in town right now!" Regardless of how much Light any one of us is expressing into this plane at a particular time, that Light will show up in ways that we would simply label as "personality." We see no basis for saying that "personality" is a "low vibe thing" compared to a higher sense of self showing up. So, the trick is to go through the process of refining that expression so that we can experience life with more joy and prosperity - bringing in more and more of our Higher Self into this plane.
Q: There is so much material out there about spirituality. Do you have any suggestions about how to screen and select the right information on this subject?
A: Good question! The process of screening and selecting leads us right to the word "discernment." Discernment is that very elusive quality we all experience in life that relates to our personal sense of knowing and the development of our self-trust. As you build discernment, you'll simply know for yourself what is right or not right for you. Sometimes it can take plenty of "mistakes" and learning/growth experiences to truly sharpen your talent for discerning! At some point in the spiritual development of the individual, something "clicks" and a greater sense of self-trust seems to magically appear. At that point, we use this phrase to describe the experience..."You simply know when you know when you know!" Call it wisdom, intuition, tuning-in...whatever! It is all about personal self-trust...and we think it simply develops over time via the process of living through life experiences here in this plane!
Q: When a person is doing channeling work, can his own fears get mixed up with the channeled information?
A: Yes, but other factors can also influence, "color" or "filter" the channeled information...not just one's fears! The channeler's adverse soul programming, inappropriate belief structures and lower vibrational mental/emotional patterns will determine the effectiveness of their channeling. All channeled information has some of this in it, because whatever is channeled must be processed through what we call the "channeler's personal machinery."
The goal (for channeling) is to access the highest energy source for content and to be the clearest and purest conduit for that source with the least amount of filtering. During the channeling process (whether for healing energies or communications, etc.), we feel that are these two key issues. First is the quality of the source of the channeled energies or information with its particular vibrational level, purity, quality and intent; and second is the quality of the conduit for the energies with his/her particular purity, filtering, etc. The vibrational clarity and quality of both the source and the conduit are significant to the effectiveness of the channeling process.
For example, as you step your way through the higher levels of Lightarian Reiki, you become attuned to a higher vibrational aspect of the Buddhic energies - meaning that the level and quality of the source of the energies (Buddhic energies) are of a higher, purer and clearer vibrational nature. Becoming an increasingly clearer conduit for the energies will naturally occur for you, as you advance your spiritual processes through the clearing, healing and activation of your energy fields and physical body.
Q: When spirit comes to me during my meditations, why do I always "see" such familiar looking energies?
A: Spirit always "shows up" in the most appropriate form of energy to work with us at a particular time...and many times the appearance of the energy is based upon one's religious and cultural beliefs. That's why a familiar looking Jesus figure may always show up for some, while a representation of Buddha or Krishna appears to others. Also, an individual may sometimes identify or perceive communications as coming from an outside spiritual source...from a source with which he/she may feel very comfortable. In actuality, these energies may be coming from one's own inner Higher Self and are simply being presented to the individual in the most comfortable way in order to create a more effective experience. In a sense, these kinds of experiences are all orchestrated by your Higher Self, so that the supportive energy shows up in the form best suited for the job to be done!
Q: What do you mean by "walk in" event?
A: "Walk-in event" is a simple way to describe an experience (usually) when a higher aspect of the individual infuses into the lower incarnational self. It usually represents a major shift in the consciousness of the person. In the past these shifts were often called spiritual initiations....as often performed in the ancient mystery schools.
Q: Could you talk about the different roles and purposes of the Angels and Ascended Masters?
A: From our perspective, the Angels and Ascended Masters have both different roles and different goals. This is based on fundamental differences in the energies of each kind of celestial being. Because of the basic energetic differences, the nature and patterns for service by each of these two realms are very different; however, they do overlap somewhat because they both incorporate many of the same Divine Virtues. Although both Realms embody both feminine and masculine energies, we see the Ascended Masters biased toward the masculine, assertive side of the spectrum and the Angelic Realms biased toward the feminine. From this general perspective, the Ascended Masters can be more assertive, stimulative and focused in their work with humans, while members of the Angelic Realms can be more supportive and nurturing. For example, in the Clearing Ray, Ascended Master El Morya's role is like a medical doctor, more specifically like a surgeon doing laser-surgery regarding the releasing of old etheric patterns, while the Angels, to continue the analogy, would be like the nurses, focused on being helpful and supportive. Their roles would be very different, yet complementary.
Q: Is there a dramatic increase in authentic channels operating lately due to humanity's spiritual amplification and Gaia's ascension?
A: You may recall from our book, New Humans. New Earth, that the fog of "planetary darkness and low vibration" is changing now in three ways:  lifting,  thinning and  being penetrated by the Light on an accelerated basis. Along with these wonderful developments, we are indeed experiencing a thinning of our veils between the physical plane and virtually all levels of Spirit...including ET's, Angels and the Celestial Masters. With this comes the blessing and "challenge" of more communications in the forms of telepathy, knowing, intuition, channeling, etc. Yes, the amount of this communication is dramatically rising and so too is the challenge of quality! With so many folks opening more to Spirit there are now more individuals channeling more entities than ever before. Regarding the channeling process, we continue to feel that there are two key issues...first is the source of the information with its particular vibrational level, purity, quality and intent and...second is the channel for the information with his/her particular purity, filtering, etc. The assessment of both the quality of the source and the quality of the channel are important here....and it essentially boils down to the feeling and resonance that you personally have with the "information" (in a sense, your combined experience of both source and channel).
Q: I seem to be just waiting! Is there anything I can do during these times of upheaval and fear?
A: Many of us seem to be waiting for something to finally "pop" and so that we can finally "move into action." It can be a strange feeling. In a vision recently, we saw hundreds and hundreds of Lightworkers marshaling forces - all coming forward and stepping into a "front line" which seemed to stretch across a wide expanse. But we could feel that more time was needed before everyone would be deployed, actually called into action. However, we also felt that the timing was right, in a sense, to "call up the reserves" - to get everyone prepared and ready for the time when they will eventually be called into action. So, others are also feeling what you are feeling! It can certainly be frustrating just waiting...but for now, we live our lives, working on our own personal process and trying to be of service in whatever ways we can. Many of us are doing a lot of work on the etheric now and we can supplement that with some conscious intentions of sending love, Light and healing to the world and humanity. In other words, we can use the tools that we have - namely our Angelic and Ascended Master connections - to be of service!
Q: I like to have your help in better understanding the concept of past/present/future time. I have had visions where a part of me was living in a dimension where time and space did not exist. In my visions, I have seen life in past times, as well as in the future. It seems to me that what IS happening in the past, and what IS happening in future, IS actually happening in the present in other dimensions.
A: This is a tricky one! Just like for most people, there are probably many parts of you that are operating in other dimensions. You could simply call them different levels of your etheric self energies...such as soul, oversoul and Higher Self levels. There is a high probability that there are also other "incarnational aspects" of your energies that are living lifetimes in other dimensions and times which are "more physical" in nature. These could be called past lives, parallel lives (in current time) and future lives. Most people operating with aspects of their energies in these other planes of experience usually do so with limited awareness, or none at all! When you have been experiencing your visions (as described in your question) you may have been slipping into any of these kinds of "lives"...whether they are incarnational or etheric in nature.
Q: Correct me if I am wrong...my opinion regarding our roles here is that some souls have been assigned to play certain roles (their destiny) even before they are born into this Earth plane. So, is free will operating here?
A: This is also a little tricky! I agree that there are assigned roles; however, I see them as laid out "in general guidelines" prior to coming into the incarnation. These kinds of strategic choices are always made at the soul, oversoul and Higher Self levels before the energy infuses into a new incarnational experience. In detail, with free-will highly operative, the individual then gets to "play things out" in the actual life experience. That's when things can get messy and folks can get out-of-balance! Now, having said that, please keep in mind that to some degree, our lessons in life come from the challenges that we create for ourselves, so that we can learn and grew through the incarnational experience. Therefore, we may be destined to have certain problems and encounter certain challenges just to prepare us for our future roles. Some folks say that everything is pre-planned. And others could say most of life is, while others could say that nothing is predestined at all. You will have to tune in to your own inner wisdom to see where you are on this spectrum of Total Destiny (No Free Will) at one end compared to No Destiny (Total Free Will) at the other end.
Q: What does Ascension/Descension mean?
A: The ascension/descension process is a series of transformational stages through which you will be moving into progressively higher vibrational states of being. This process involves the integration and merging of ever-increasing levels of your Higher Self energies into your lower etheric fields and the physical body. As most of you know from the Lightarian work, we see the clearing, healing and activating of the etheric fields and the physical body as essential steps in the process of personal transformation. With each ascension/descension stage comes potentially challenging processing and releasing. And, in its more advanced stages, the overall process allows the etheric fields to completely clear, heal and become activated...and allows the physical body to transform into a truly refined vessel to house aspects of your Higher Self energies. We also call this a process of descension, because your energies of Higher Self are able to descend into the physical plane via your physical body at an unprecedented rate.
Q: How do you define the difference between Spirit & Soul?
A: We use the term "spirit" to described just about any non-physical form of conscious, aware energy (usually called a "being") that is operating etherically beyond this physical plane. This certainly includes all levels of the Angelic Realms and the Celestial Masters...and reaches vibrationally down to extraterrestrials and human astral energies. If "the being" is aware and conscious then to us that's "spirit."
Soul is very different and relates to the lower vibrational aspects of only "human consciousness." So, it includes the "close in" levels of our Earth human energies and also extends to our understanding of extraterrestrials. You can also check the definition for "Soul" in our Glossary at the back of any of your Lightarian manuals. Also, read over the related definitions for Multi-dimensional Self, Spiritual Lineage, Oversoul, Higher Self, etc.
Q: What age is appropriate for a child to receive attunements
A: Many parents are seeing how advanced the children are today entering into the earth plane. They are choosing to have the child receive their Reiki attunements as well as other attunements. Sometimes, it is perfect, and other times it feels a bit overwhelming. We offer to “do nothing” and what we mean by that is offer the attunements, and trust that the child and their inner wisdom will ‘know’ whether to accept at that time. Our role as Facilitator, with anyone actually, is as a grounding vehicle for the attunement/energy to ground into the physical plane. Sometimes we may feel shifts occur, sometimes we may feel nothing. It is all perfect. What is our role with these children that are here already and coming in? What is okay to do or not do? We are told that many of these children are already able to do more than what we believe. We offer that some need only a simple calibration that can be facilitated through one of us without our awareness. Or some need quite a bit of support and can receive it through a facilitator’s body grounding in the “method” that is perfect for that little person. Again, it is not for us to decide. These little people are already equipped with decision-making ability and do so with their energetic team.
