The Luminous Broadcast

 

Imagine  light and energy beaming out from you, radiating in all directions, careening about people around you, even if you don’t speak or have physical contact. Do you wonder what impact that might have? This morning, I had the opportunity to ponder that idea as Kathy Milano spoke at Circle of Miracles. With an impressive professional pedigree (a Bryn Mawr grad), she has one foot in the mainstream therapeutic world as a Ph.D psychologist, offering integrative counseling for adults, teens and children and the other in the metaphysical realm; working with angelic energies. She seems to be able to bridge the worlds quite nicely.

Kathy referred to the above described concept as The Luminous Broadcast, which seemed to me to be about consciously allowing the heart of who we are to truly shine throughout our day. It feels easy when we are surrounded by like minded people and doing what we enjoy; not so simple to orchestrate in the midst of challenges and pain. I think of it as a radio station that broadcasts on a frequency and a station known as WLUV, rather than WFER. So easy to slide over to the other end of the dial when I am faced with situations and people that feel messy and yucky. It is when I am most in need of reminders, that people like Kathy show up to point out ways in which I can up the amps on love. She endeavors; as do I, to be a ‘living prayer’, putting out there, positive vibes to juice the area in which I maneuver. She described an experience of going to the Cherry Hill Mall (in the Philly suburb of Cherry Hill, NJ) a few days before Christmas, right after 12/21/12, which brought with it huge paradigm shifts. The intended purpose was to get a holiday outfit for her 13 year old daughter. Being highly sensitive to energy and having spent the day before immersed in it, they were particularly buzzed by the holiday hustle and bustle, finding comfort in french fries at the food court. It wasn’t until after they left the mall, that Kathy realized her daughter already had something she could wear. She had the sense that they needed to go there to test out their metaphorical/metaphysical wings. I sometimes go to department stores and grocery stores and beam out the love rays to see how people react. Mostly they smile back, sometimes they seem surprised, with  ‘what just happened here?’ looks on their astonished faces. Rarely are they still grumply and growly. Check it out yourself as an experiment.

 

I also enjoyed the ideas Kathy offered about being ‘cells in the body of Love’. How would your life be if you saw yourself as being one of billions of bio-spiritual beings bumping up against and around other cells?

Where I Am
  How often do you ask yourself  'what if and if only'  questions?  "What if I had chosen a different path, partner, career, home?  Bet I'd be happier if I had," is the frequent litany for many. We get fidgety staying still. We kvetch about how things aren't the way we want them to be, a

On Wings
  Four years ago, at this moment, an event was in the process of taking place that would change my life as I knew it. My mother was in the 'birth canal' on her way to her new life. A few months earlier while she was on hospice, we would have the most extraordinary conversations about what t

Allowing Others To Effect Their Own Destinies
Most Sundays find me at Circle of Miracles, which is an interfaith spiritual community created 19 years ago by Rev. Hannelore Goodwin. It is where I, and many who attend the ecumenical services, find family of choice, inspiration, community and healing. The room is a warm and welcoming place where D

The Only Life You Can Save
One of my favorite wise woman poets is Mary Oliver whose words touch my heart in ways that few others can; as if they could have come through me as well; so personal they are. Today, while visiting my former place of employment, one of my co-workers pulled out an anthology consisting of the works of

Abby's Light
  When a light comes into the world, we hope that it will last indefinitely, knowing that eventually it will fade. When a child is born, a parent doesn't expect that his or her light will diminish before it has a chance to fully express itself...and yet, sadly it happens.  Abby Schumer was
