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?

As I was speaking with a client today, we were discussing ways that people learn who they are and how they re-create themselves when major life changes occur. I remembered a scene from one of my favorite films:  Joe vs. the Volcano. Tom Hanks plays Joe Banks who  has a dreary, gray life, with pre
