My journey, since accepting my position last year, has been about patience and timing. Two weeks ago I heard, "It is time!" I jumped onto my computer and sent out emails asking for articles and input. Everyone responded so quickly and generously to the Lightarian Institute and its community to make this newsletter happen. "It is time," and therefore it all came together so easily. And what a community we have....the Registered Lightarian Teachers are spread throughout 47 different countries!!
The newsletter is chock full of insights and tools to use as you continuously ascend -- or even "descend" as we also refer to this process here at the Lightarian Institute. Each newsletter will include regular columns, as well as new items mixed in, all to enhance your accelerated spiritual journey.
It is with the biggest heart filled with appreciation and joy that I send this to you.
With love, light and many blessings,

We are the
Circle of LIGHT. Many of you know us as our individual
entities as we are the Angels, Ascended Masters, Maitreya,
all levels that make up the Godhead and yet we are more than
that. About two years ago, we started to channel to Peggy
Zeramby as the group energy as before then she would channel
us individually. When she stepped into her position last
year as the Leader for the Lightarian Institute we continued
to come to her to assist her in the day to day happenings in
your world and also through the energy work that she
facilitates. This past year has been a year of alignment,
and preparation for all that is manifesting for the
As the Circle
of LIGHT we also consist of energies that many of you are
not aware of on a conscious level. We support you none the
less and there is always such celebration when each of you
have received or choose to facilitate an attunement for
others. We are joyful from this side as we watch all of you
expanding, becoming lighter and brighter. There have been
many changes to the energies of your Earth which only
propels each of you forward along your path of spiritual
growth. Gaia continues to make her shifts and changes as
she releases much like you do. And there is still many to
assist as they step into their own power and onto their own
accelerated spiritual path.
The Circle of
LIGHT includes and is connected to all vibrational realms.
The image we share is a brilliant ball of Light that
represents the whole of this realm of the Universe and
connected as one to the other "balls" of Light which
consists of all vibrational realms. Each one of you
represents a combination or extraction from this ball of
Light. You are a particular formula or combination, if you
will, that is anchored inside your body while it is alive.
As you live your life in your physical reality, and learn,
release, stretch and grow you are still one with the whole
and therefore your growth is our growth. There is such
gratitude from this side of awareness for all that each of
you are doing, because as you expand the “Ball” expands its
ability to expand throughout all the incarnational
experiences. There are also many beings that learn from
this side of the veil through those that are on a path such
as yours. The purpose of introducing ourselves to all of
you is so that you might submit questions. We are lovingly
available to each of you every moment. With appreciation
and gratitude.....the Circle of LIGHT.
If you wish to
submit questions to be answered in future issues of the
Lightarian Institute's newsletter, please send them to:

Curable from Within!
by Stephen Lovering, Lightarian Licensee,
Working with people who have serious or life threatening
illnesses made me aware that an increasing number of
being denied the chance to learn and work with Reiki. I
was amazed to hear that people were being told that they
couldn’t learn Reiki if they had a serious illness as
they may pass the illness on to others or even being
told that there was no point! Having clients and friends
who have serious illnesses, and seeing the benefits they
gained from learning and working with Reiki, was the
catalyst for starting Curable from Within.
Currently a non-profit organisation (soon to be a
registered charity) free Level one courses in Usui Reiki
are offered throughout the United Kingdom to people who
have terminal/serious illnesses. Curable from Within
will ultimately expand to the USA and Canada and will
rely purely on donations from supporters.
actively promote and encourage the teaching of Reiki to
disabled and physically less able students - there is
absolutely NO REASON why people with disabilities or
terminal illnesses cannot learn Reiki - some of the best
Reiki practitioners have disabilities/terminal illnesses
and of course by working with Reiki they are promoting
their own well being and clearing and healing process.
Don't let anyone tell
you that you can't learn and work with Reiki - YOU CAN !
Further information can be found at

offered please feel welcome to refer them to the

The Power of Intent: Connections
by Jodi A. Zeramby
It seems to me that
every person is unique. That said, how is it that we are
able to connect?
We are individuals,
alone in our perspective, that which is based on our
experiences, instincts, societal influence, and genetic
makeup. For example, the way I view a flower is different
from your way. Depending on the day--my thoughts, my
experiences, my health and my mental well-being, I will view
the flower with different perceptions. Moreover, the way I
view that flower today may be different than how
view it on a different day. Today, viewing a red calle
lily, I see the texture, the merging and separation of
colors, the elegant shape, life itself in this small
cosmopolitan force of energy. I feel its aura, how it
reflects pureness, complexity, and sweetness. I inhale its
essence, smiling at the simplicity of the senses and how it
can bridge the gap between human and plant, a profound
connection. I recognize and am immersed in beauty. Without
touching, I am touched.
Yet tomorrow or yesterday my senses are different. My
interpretation of the lily, different. Why? Today, I take
the time to notice, to be present. I am, so it is. I
connect to myself, and by doing so, I connect to all that is
part of my existence.
How, then, do we connect with others? We find a commonality
among experiences. As humans, we attempt to
explain—everything, not only to find order out of chaos, but
also so that we can share, and by sharing, not be alone in
our experiences. When I read a book, I may connect with the
characters, the setting, or the message. This connection
occurs when I recognize emotions I have felt or could
imagine myself feeling when found in a similar situation.
Pure conjecture, of course. How do I really know? Without
the actual experience in the present, I have no solid
foundation from which to
formulate my supposed reactions.
Shared experiences bind us, whether shared in the mind and
imagination or shared through the actual, physical actions.
When people have a common experience or a common goal, it
acts as a thread that binds them—the strongest thread, in
fact. So, then are we looking at the goal, instead of the
actual experience which connects us? Isn’t it true that the
journey, the common experience is just as important? How do
we define this paradoxical relationship of the journey and
the finish line, and the natural outgrowth of people’s
experiences and connections? Confusing, isn’t it? What do
The question remains, how do we extend ourselves to truly
connect with others? Is it even possible? I go back to
connecting with my spirit. It is only through loving
myself, accepting myself, and understanding myself that I
can reach out to others. I have studied many philosophies,
religions, thinkers, and scientists—amazing concepts,
truly. The Transcendentalists espoused that we can only
connect with our true power through intuition. By listening
to our inner voices, we are able to tap into the Divine
Soul. But, it is more than that. Ralph Waldo Emerson said,
“As fast as you conform your life to the pure idea in your
mind, that will unfold its great proportions. A
correspondent revolution in things will attend the influx of
the spirit.” Yet, how do we
know of what the pure idea consists, as opposed to selfish
will? Does it matter? After all, isn’t it all about
intention? If I desire a certain outcome, I send out my
intention and let it go. I go on with life. I no longer
worry the subject. At least, that is my aim. But, the mind
doesn’t always work that way, does it? It goes back to
perception, to the strength of the mind, to overcoming
fears. And, it is more than positive thinking when we place
our intentions into the universe; we have to believe in it
one hundred percent, live the reality before it becomes the
reality. If we harbor any doubts or fears for the positive
outcome of the intention, that desire will not come to
fruition. After all, we may be able to fool ourselves at
times, but we cannot fool the universe. It hears all our
thoughts, positive and negative, and grants every
intention. We shift and shape reality with our thoughts,
and thoughts create our undulating reality.
Some believe that, to live a purely spiritual life and to
connect truly with the spirit, the Divine Soul, one must
reject the rest of the world. To remain true to the spirit,
one must release selfishness, anger, sadness, and all other
types of lower vibrational emotions—emotions that emit
negative, slower frequencies of vibration that make up our
physical bodies. How is that possible when interacting with
others who have their own wants, feelings, desires and
agendas? Even if a person attains a higher vibrational
energy level, that person is influenced by the bombardment
of others’ energies. That’s where interacting is so
fascinating! Positive emotions raise a person’s vibration,
too. That energy affects others as surely as do negative
emotions. When someone smiles at you, doesn’t it make you
smile? It is uplifting, yes?
The question becomes how do we attain higher energetic
vibrations? We allow for stillness in our lives. We reach
for the calmness within. Yet, in this life, particularly in
the United States, it is challenging to slow down, to stop,
to meditate. Once we are able to tap into that stillness,
we can apply it to our lives. Think of this: when you are
on the right path, don’t you feel happy and alive? Isn’t
that the most wonderful feeling! At that point, you are
present, truly living in the moment. We ground ourselves
with the experiences of life while allowing light to flood
our spirits. We connect with not only our own pure energy,
but with the energy of the universe in these moments. What
is our purpose while on this Earth? To experience life in
all its joyful physicality, in all our day-to-day
interactions. Do we need to make a difference, do we need
to be remembered or to be in a history book? Yes and no.
Some people place their intentions within the universe to be
remembered by many. They view their purpose in life is to
leave a mark somehow. Sometimes those people are
remembered, but perhaps not in the way they anticipated.
Look at Shelley’s poem Ozymandias which reflects that point
nicely regarding Ramesses II.
In the end, we do make a difference, just by existing. We
are remembered, if not on this plane, then in a different
one, not to mention by our Higher Selves—otherwise known as
our spirits or our souls. Just by existing, we are a part
of history, regardless of whether we are ever notated in
some silly human book which synopsizes people’s actions. In
the span of existence, we are a mere blip, at most. After
all, our souls are merely encapsulated by our bodies for a
short time. Yet, to ourselves, and to others we have
touched, our existence has meaning. And, each person
satisfies the Higher Self’s goal—to experience life in all
its glory; no other purpose exists.
Sharing insights helps us to grow. So, who are you? How
are you seeking out your enlightenment? What do you make of
your life’s journey, so far? Where do you hope to go? Life
is all about choices. What do you choose? Will it be the
road less traveled? Robert Frost stated that it made all the
Every action and inaction affects the next moment, the
unfolding of life. Nothing occurs by accident—all is
perfectly orchestrated. My words have come to you by your
invocation. Otherwise, these words would not have reached
you. I believe it is a sacred undertaking—to share
thoughts. The intention I release into the universe is that
you disregard any reticence you harbor and allow yourself to
explore. Share your thoughts. It connects us.

Alchemy of Nutrition: Cleansing while Clearing
by Linda Meneses, Certified Health Educator,
USA and Portugal
today can be complex, never mind being on a personal quest
for health through purification of the body, mind and
spirit. New diets and supplements sprout up everywhere
Consider the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto...His
photographs of water crystals document the effect of our
thoughts on water. “Love & Gratitude” is
represented by image at right.
Water-the ultimate cleanser, is the Philosopher's Stone of
nutrients. As is pointed out in “What The Bleep Do We
Know” (the film), we are 60% water! And this film also
demonstrates through the theories of Quantum Physics how our
thoughts, actually more like how our feelings have a huge
influence on our body chemistry and therefore on our overall
wellbeing. For this reason, the Adept searching for health
must work on purification of the mind as well as the body.
And for those whose quest for health is a spiritual one,
detoxification is essential to fine tuning the body to the
“higher frequencies”. But the focus here is the body, the
temple of the spirit.
The Qi or “life force” within live,
(raw) foods and juices make them therapeutically powerful.
Due to the abundant and easily absorbed nutrients, which
cleanse the cells of toxins and supply all the necessary
elements for the body’s many processes. The body is then
able to tap into its vast regenerative resources. Live
foods are raw vegetables and fruits as well as sprouted
grains, beans, seeds and
nuts. Because they are not cooked, the nutrients, plant
hormones and enzymes are in tact and therefore, perfectly
packaged for easy digestion. Sprouts are called 'super food'
as they contain enormous levels of proteins, vitamins,
minerals, trace minerals, chlorophyll and enzymes.
Linda Meneses has studied nutrition since 1987 and is
certified by Hippocrates Institute as a holistic health
educator. She has many years experience preparing food for
cleansing and optimal health and calls her approach to diet,
the Alchemy of Nutrition, food for body, mind and spirit.
Over the coming newsletters, I will share my knowledge while
highlighting simple ways to introduce nutrients and release
toxins. I will also be accepting questions by sending an
[email protected] with the subject heading being
“Alchemy of Nutrition”.
In good health and well-being,

Yuko Okamoto, Japan
My path to the world of healing and
spirituality started and progressed along with raising
my three sons. In 1989, my first son, one year old then,
started running a high fever. I gave him a medicine for
fever and three days later his temperature was still
running high. I did not know what to do. Then I
remembered a book on an old Japanese hand healing method
I had read and it described a healing technique,
receiving universal energy thru your left hand and
sending it out through your right hand. Not really
expecting it to work, I decided to give it a try and put
my right hand on my son. To my surprise, it worked! It
brought down his temperature in no time. Since then, I
continued to experience this magic, “I put my hands on
and the problem goes away”. Every time any of my sons
got sick, I helped them heal by putting my hand on them.
Still it was not something I was properly taught and I
had no idea on how and why it works….
In October 1993, my
family moved to Atlanta, US, Little did I know that I
would experience a life-changing encounter there. One
week after my arrival in Atlanta, I saw a huge sparkling
white statue of an angel in front of a big
church in Dunwoody, astonishingly tall and with
magnificent wings. But next time I visited the church,
the statue of an angel was not there. There was only a
stone monument inscribed with the name of the church.
The statue of an angel I saw was so real and could not
be my imagination. I only found out much later that it
was Archangel Michael who manifested himself to welcome
me to the new world opening ahead of me. The first three
years in the US had been a real challenge for me, having
to raise three sons of young age, in a foreign country
with completely different culture, not being able to
understand, speak, read or write the language. I was
feeling left alone, having no one to depend on. I was
living with fear.
It was in April
1997, the moment when I first encountered Reiki. The
healing of my own style, “receiving universal energy and
running it through my hands”, was actually exactly what
Reiki was and had the same quality of energy as Reiki.
Reiki and Meditation gave me a lot of spiritual
knowledge, inspiration and awakening. It was the time of
my spiritual awakening, peeling off layers of my old
issues and transforming into a new me. As soon as I was
back to Japan in June 1998, I started practicing Reiki
healing and past-life regression therapy.
In June 1999, I
founded Y&Y Healing Center. In August 1999, the first
URRI (Usui Reiki Ryoho International) Workshop was held
in Vancouver, Canada, for which I was part of the
workshop organizers. At this Vancouver workshop, some
new information on the truly traditional Reiki in Japan
as taught by Mr.Mikao Usui was first introduced to the
western world and attracted the attentions from Reiki
masters world-wide. In November 1999, I was given the
role of Karuna Reiki ® Representative of Japan and
started to officially introduce Karuna Reiki ® in Japan.
In 2000, Y&Y Healing Center hosted the second URRI
Workshop in Kyoto, Japan. Reiki masters in Japan and
from overseas got together in Kyoto, the birthplace of
Reiki. In October 2001, I introduced SSR (Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki)
to Japan, holding the first SSR class in Japan, inviting
Mr. Tom Rigler, a SSR master, from US. Tom introduced me
Lightarian Programs then. Later in July 2002, I started
to pass on AngelLink to my Reiki students. I became a
Lightarian Licensee in Japan at the same time, helping
to spread Lightarian programs in Japan. Without any
intentions, I ended up with working to introduce the
traditional Reiki in Japan to overseas for the fist two
years after I was back to Japan and thereafter working a
window for introducing western energy work to Japan.
Y&Y Healing Center,
currently located at the center of Kyoto City, holds a
very comfortable space where angels come forth whenever
sessions or workshops are given. I regularly give
classes/workshops for Usui Reiki, Karuna Reiki ®,
Healing practices, Angel Healing, Counseling & Aura
Reading, Spiritual Aroma Therapy, Full/New Moon
meditations, Channeling. And my private sessions include
Lightwork Sessions, Spiritual Reading, Reiki healing,
past-life regression therapy and attunements for
Lightarian ReikiTM, Lightarian RaysTM,
AngellinkTM. I have students and clients
coming from all over Japan and also from overseas,
including France, Canada, US, who are all seeking for
healing and spiritual growth of their souls
My healing work is
supported by Archangel Michael who has been guiding me
since the first encounter and also by Angels and
ascended masters. However my source of power on the
physical plane is my three sons. My work evolved along
with their growth. And more than anything else, the
infinite love, power and support from Yukio Miura, the
other staff of Y&Y Healing Center, my twin soul and my
partner, have been what create and activate new energy
work of Y&Y.
