the "school OF INNER LIGHT"

We founded the "School of Inner Light" in 2002 as a consequence of having been working and studying in the field of vibrational, energetic, healing and spiritual disciplines since 1993. Our own learning in the esoteric field and the desire to pass on what we have learnt to others resulted in us taking on a more active "teaching" role, although of course the "learning" never stops! It seems that the more research we do as the courses we offer expand, the more we find out. And also the more we teach, the more we learn from our students - which is just as it should be of course! Djwhal Kuhl once pointed out to us that "knowledge is a wheel, and wisdom is a circle. And thus as we teach, so do we learn, and as we learn, so do we teach." One of our other Guides also told us "Once the teacher has passed on all their knowledge to another, the other may take that knowledge and change it and return it back to the teacher, so that cycle upon cycle is repeated for all, and those who are guided now guide and those who guide are now guided."

HOW our name and logo is DEFINED:

In numerology the name "School of Inner Light" equates to Master Number 11. Eleven is the first Master number, and has a special relevance on an intuitive level. It is called the Master Psychic and suggests enhanced psychic capabilities and working at finer levels of intuition. It is also connected with Spiritual Truths and the concept of true Brotherhood - that we are all a part of the Whole, with no dimensional boundaries.

As the ethic of the School has developed and grown we decided in 2009 to create a new logo that better holds the frequencies and ideals we are working with as we move closer to Ascension. Our logo now shows the Christed or Buddhic Self seated in Lotus position. This embraces the concept of the potential we each have to BE a fully awakened and enlightened Being of Light. When you look at the design, you will see at the 3rd eye the Sun of Divine Illumination, supported by the violet frequencies of the Flame of Transmutation, which sustains our connection to our Higher Self and the Universal Matrix and hence unites us with all sources of Divine Guidance and Enlightenment. Within the centre of the chest you will see the Emerald of the Heart, which holds the full spectrum of our reality - our embodied Absolute Self, embracing and acknowledging both our shadow side and Light side, which are held in perfect balance and accord. Shining through the body from its placement at the Seat of the Soul (located in front of the sacrum at the base of the spine*) you will see our core Diamond light shining out with brilliance and radiance from the Star at our centre, which is defined by the golden frequency of Divine Wisdom. Thus we recognize that we have re-connected with our birthright - our True and Divine Self - and in so doing can radiate our Inner Light, our Inner Peace, our Truth and our Joy for the benefit of ourself and others.

*according to the Oxford dictionary the name sacrum is from the Latin "os sacrum", meaning "sacred bone", from the ancient belief that the soul resides there!

When each of us begins our journey on the spiritual path, a spark is re-kindled within us. And as we take each step on our way back home to Source / God - or whatever your understanding of this is - our "Inner Light" becomes brighter. Our journey home provides us with many doorways: some open, some closed; and with many pathways: some clear, some not so clear. These provide us with the opportunities we need as we experience and grow in our understanding of the world around us and, perhaps more importantly, of our Self. Our journey is made possible through the Divine Gift of Free Will, which means that we are able to make ANY choice at ANY stage of our journey that we decide. Some choices we make we may perceive on reflection as being "good" or "bad". Or we may believe that other people make our choices for us. But in fact at some level we experience in our lives exactly what we have chosen to and, even if we cannot control the actual event, we can use the same gift of free will to choose how we react to each and every situation. And this is how we learn. ALL learning is progress and it is often the case that we learn the most from the least pleasant lessons, for sometimes we need to experience what we don't want in our lives in order to know what we do. And of course there are those times when we experience just what we need, and our hearts truly sing with the joy that those experiences bring us.

Here is what our Guides have to say about pathways:

"At the most basic you have each come here to fulfil a purpose. Finding it and carrying it out to the best of your ability in the full Light of Spirituality is what you need to do. To expend energy worrying about anything else is simply a waste of that energy. In truth it matters not what others think or do, or how they react to what you offer the world. For if every person on Earth were living their lives in accordance with their own Divine plan (which is recognising and working with their Christ-self / Buddha-self within) then all of humanity would live as mindful representations of God - compassionate, accepting and forgiving. Whosoever chooses to live in this way is practising being that which you all seek as your next step - to Ascend as a Master of your Self in your own right. For this is what the title "Ascended Master" means: Being a Master of yourself, and not of others! When you are true to your path you are complete and perfect and you understand the Peace and Joy that embodied Divinity creates."

Eventually what we discover is that the answers we have been reaching for on our journey are not "out there", but are within us, and it is along the paths and through the doorways of the INNER Self that we actually need to travel. Indeed, we have found that the true path to healing and growth - and so the way through which we will achieve our Ascension (both personal and planetary) is the pathway of the SELF: of self-understanding, self-healing, self-acceptance and self-love. These precepts are the foundation and cornerstones of many of our courses and workshops, and we find them to be emphasised to us in our research for those teachings time and again by our Guides and Teachers, who also wish those who work with us to reach the same understanding. And it is this journey of exploration to find your own "Inner Light" that we are here to support and facilitate.

Here is what our Guides have to say about inner knowing:

"......for sometimes it is necessary to look within the deepest depths of yourself to find the enlightenment that lives outside. For you to be connected, you must intimately know yourself, for then those things around you will be able to connect to you, and you will know them for what they are. For in knowing yourself you know all things and all there is to know."

the design of our websites:

The design behind our web pages and partnership logos contains much symbolism. The main colours we have chosen to use for the text and pictures throughout all our sites are blue and navy. Both are shades of blue - the colour related to the throat chakra and communication, with hints of green (the heart / love) and indigo (the 3rd eye / intuition). We have chosen to put all channelled information in violet - the colour of the crown chakra, which connects us to our Higher Selves.

The background wallpaper for each page is composed of many silver spirals, silver being the energy of the soul. You will also find that somewhere in all our logos for the School, Crystal Sales, Therapies and Lightworkers sites, "*stars*" feature. I was reading a book recently by Michael Schneider called "A Beginners Guide to Constructing the Universe" (ISBN 0-06-092671-6) and found he had some very relevant things to say concerning the meanings behind stars and spirals, which I quote here:
"When we see stars and spirals we know that there is life and excellence, motion and transformation..... The lesson of the spiral is that every "thing" is a process - a dynamic "energy event".....With its inherent harmony the spiral is a metaphor for our inevitable transformation within..... beckoning us as a symbol of consciousness and the way we live. Our own inner spiral process whirls us into the mystery of the infinite within us..... In the spirals principles of self-replication, self-accumulation, self-recurrence and self-similarity..... the recurring key is the word "self". The message of the spiral is growth and the transformation of our Self."
He goes on to say, concerning the purpose of the spiral:
"The centre within us is the truth of our Higher Self, the reality deepest within, which each of us calls "I"..... The rhythmic interplay between the impulse to divide ourselves from our centre and the yearning that is expressed in our longing to return is found in the experience of constantly searching for and finding meaning in our lives. The interplay between these two forces manifests itself in the world as a curve. That is why the transformative path is characterised by a spiral..... When we grow we arrive at the same place we were before, but we arrive more experienced, higher on the circle.... "
We see this path of self-discovery as being the very thing we and the teachings of the School aim to support and encourage.

Overview of our philosophy:

Our "mission statement" is:

"To support fellow Lightworkers in developing the confidence and skills which will help them to grow and find fulfilment on their journey."


Our motto is:

"Truth brings Light"


We are in reality vast

Bigger than our Planet -
as big even as our Solar System.
On this scale a human appears insignificant -
yet we create so much Energy,
completely disproportionate to our size.
Our influence is massive
and all concentrated in a tiny package:
on a small planet;
in a minor Solar System
of an insignificant Galaxy.

It is as if we hid ourselves here,
so that we could exert our influence unseen,
or so that we could learn,
and grow our skills and Power
before others knew of our existence
or presence upon the Galactic stage.
We must acknowledge the responsibility
to possess such Power;
and demonstrate the humility
to be trusted with it.
