Welcome to the Golden Light Project (GLP)
GUIDELINES AND DAILY TOOLS:
The guidelines given are not intended as hard rules but as gentle suggestions on how to optimise the personal transformation that you no doubt will experience as a result of this programme. They are tools and techniques that we have personally used for over 20 years and which have made a huge difference in our ongoing personal journey towards en-lighten-ment and spiritual growth.
We want to provide you with a tried and tested framework for protection, grounding and centering so that your experience with the Golden Light will be the best it can be for you at this point in time. The next 13 days provide you with the opportunity to get a glimpse of the beauty, power and brilliance of who you truly are. The Golden Light is the Rainbow Bridge that connects your earthly self with your Highest Self. The more you work with this light, the stronger your bridge will become. We wish you joy and peace beyond understanding on this journey of discovering who you are.
It is important that you take a few minutes to prepare yourself before the meditations. This will help you to have a purer experience whilst remaining grounded and present at the same time.
Here are two tools that we cannot recommend highly enough: Smudging and invoking the power of the Medicine Wheel.
Creating smoke is the name given to this sacred cleansing ceremony performed for many thousands of years by indigenous people. This ceremony is a means of powerful cleansing, which calls on the plant spirit to take away what does not belong to us so balance can be restored. When you invite the smoke to come to you, it will take away negative energies, words, thoughts and attitudes – yours or others’ – and ensure that your personal space and energy field is clear so your mind can become focused and pure.
We recommend that you use White Sage – a plant that is traditionally used especially for this purpose and if you have not got any you can order highest quality bundled sage through our website. There is no need to light the whole bundle, just break off a leaf, light it and waft the smoke around your body and through your energy field with the intent of clearing and cleansing. Don’t forget to honor and thank the plant spirit for its help!
Do the smudging before you invoke the Medicine Wheel.
The Medicine Wheel has been used for thousands of years in all ancient shamanic and spiritual traditions as a powerful means for creating Sacred Space. Each one of us is standing in the centre of our own universe within this wheel of life. As we direct our attention to each of the sacred directions – East, South, West, North, Below (Grandmother Earth), Above (Grandfather Sky) and Within – we invoke the power of each direction into our lives and remind ourselves that everything is sacred and that we are connected to everything that is.
As you face and invoke the Sacred Directions with a prayer, a few sincere words from your heart, you create for yourself a sacred space within which you are protected, grounded and safe. We suggest that you perform this ceremony every day before you begin the actual meditation – you will most definitely feel a difference in your connectedness, focus and inner clarity.
Each of the directions has a realm of influence relative to colour, season, time of day and time of life. Angels, spirit guardians, animals and plants are connected to each direction. Standing in the centre of our medicine wheel we send intention out in all directions, knowing that everything in all directions is Sacred or Wakan.
Make sure that you know where the cardinal directions (east, south, west and north) are before you start invoking the power of the Medicine Wheel.
Below are some of the principal archetypes that correspond to each of the Sacred Directions, but feel free to add your own if your inspiration guides you to do so. We generally start our prayers in the South, but once you have familiarised yourself with the energy of each direction you may choose to start with a different direction depending on what you are working on at a particular time. Generally we call for healing in the South, cleansing and surrender in the West, wisdom, strength and purity in the North and new beginnings in the East. Let yourself be guided by your intuition – the voice of your Highest Self – as to which direction to start with and trust that you hear your inner voice clearly and accurately.

Many years ago Renata was given by her spirit guides the most wonderful words and tune for invoking the Sacred Directions. We have recorded this SONG OF THE SACRED DIRECTIONS and this free download is our gift to you – right click on link and then click “Safe As”!

THE POWER OF INTENTION
Gregg Braden talks about a Divine Matrix through which everything is inter-connected and within which everything exists. We connect to this matrix through our feelings and emotions, and within this emotional communication and connection with the Matrix lies our power to bring healing, joy and peace to our lives and into the world.
In order to tap into the power of this matrix – the force of the universe itself – we must see ourselves as part of the world rather than as separate from it and we must become in our lives that which we choose to experience in our world.
Our intent with the GOLDEN LIGHT PROJECT (GLP) is to bring more light into ourselves and into the world by increasing our vibrational frequency personally and globally; to not only remove our own resistance to change but to become a catalyst for growth and transformation in our world. It is about releasing fear and choosing love.
Here is a clear intent through which we can let the universe know what we want to see in our lives. Speak this intent every day with power and commitment and you will surely be blessed.
I GIVE INTENT FOR THE DESCENT OF LIGHT AND I INVITE THIS GOLDEN LIGHT INTO THE EARTH THROUGH ME IN ALL REALITIES, UNIVERSES AND DIMENSIONS.
MAY THIS GOLDEN LIGHT RELEASE ALL FEAR AND NEGATIVE IMPRINTS FROM THE CELLULAR AND VIBRATIONAL MEMORY OF THE EARTH AND ME.
I GIVE INTENT FOR THE ACTIVATION OF OUR HIGHEST POTENTIAL
AS I AM FILLED WITH LIGHT, WISDOM, PEACE AND INFINITE LOVE.
AND SO IT IS.
We would like to encourage you to use the above tools every day before the actual Golden Light meditation for the duration of the GLP, and hopefully you will want to continue with them and make one or the other a permanent part of your spiritual practice.
Thank you for being part of
The Golden Light Community!
With love and many blessings,
Renata & Steven
