Before going to sleep last night, I asked the Grandmothers to teach me during the night...to give me a dream, or appear in some way. "I want a 'night class'," I said, and sure enough, they gave me a dream.
I'm tied down by ropes and can't move. Trapped, constrained, helpless, I'm part of a mass of beings bound down like this. People, animals, others. And strapped tight as we are, it's impossible for us to fight our way out of this trap. I struggle for a while until I realize I can do nothing to free myself. In fact, I'm bound so tightly I can hardly breathe enough air to keep myself alive.
When the impact of being trapped like this hits me, fear floods my mind. "Help me!" I cry and immediately feel a presence. There's a huge body of light and power inside me, and it's swelling. "Yes!" I say as I recognize this inner force. I then begin to will the light inside me to grow--to get bigger and stronger--and it does. And at last it becomes so vast, so potent, that this great swelling light pops all the bindings off me. I watch them go, fly into pieces, and fall away. Now they no longer even touch me. They're gone and I'm free.
I look around myself then and I see that my becoming free like this has somehow affected those around me too. Their bonds are also dropping off. All it took was for me to remember the force of light inside myself and as soon as I thought of it, this light grew and broke me free. I didn't have to struggle at all. In fact, I didn't have to do anything. Liberation was entirely effortless. Just remembering the light inside myself did the trick.
I came awake from that dream thrilled with the power of my own freedom. I was really free. "How easy it is to forget my own power and freedom," I said to myself. "Easy to forget who I am and get caught in the dramas of life, caught in the cruelties playing out on Earth now--and caught in the simple difficulties of every-day living."
Then I began to think about the Net of Light and "Whoa!" I cried. "Whenever I think of it, the Net of Light (which IS the light force inside us) comes alive." Just thinking of it makes that happen. And as soon as the Net of Light is activated inside one of us, it comes alive in everyone around us too. So as I free myself, I free others.
This 'night class' the Grandmothers gave was really valuable to me and I hope you'll use it too. The world today is full of drama, trauma and horror, but all of that is no match for the light being you are. You are boundless. You are immortal. You ARE the Net of Light.
Let's help each other remember this truth.
