The Luminous Energy Field - Munay-Ki.org
We all posses a Luminous Energy Field that surrounds our physical body and informs our body in the same way that the energy fields of a magnet organize iron filings on a piece of glass. Our Luminous Energy Field has existed since before the beginning of time. It was one with the unmanifest light of Creation, and it will endure throughout infinity. It dwells outside of time but manifests in time by creating new physical bodies lifetime after lifetime.
Imagine you are enveloped in a translucent, multicolored orb pulsing with blues, greens, magentas, and yellows, enfolding you to the width of your outstretched arms. Just above your skin, streams of golden light shimmer and flow through the acupuncture meridians. Between your skin and the membrane of the Luminous Energy Field swirl resplendent currents that fuse into whirlpools of light. This reservoir of vital force is a sea of living energy as indispensable to our health as the oxygen and nutrients carried by the bloodstream. They are the energies of the Luminous Energy Field, the purest and most precious fuel for life. When the vital reserves in the Luminous Energy Field are depleted through illness, environmental pollutants, or stress, we suffer disease. We can ensure our health and vitality and extend our active, healthy years by replenishing this essential fuel.
Indian and Tibetan mystics who documented the existence of the Luminous Energy Field thousands of years ago described it as an aura or halo around the physical body. At first it seemed odd to find the same concept of a human energy field among the jungle and mountain shamans in the Americas. Once I grasped the universality of the human energy field, however, I understood that every culture must have discovered it. In the East, mandalas depict the Buddha enveloped by blue and gold bands of fire. In the West, Christ and the Apostles are shown with luminous halos around them. In the mystical literature, the Apostle Thomas is said to have gloved with the same radiance as Christ. Native American legends speak of persons who shimmered in the night as if lit by an inner fire. The Andean storytellers recall the ruler Pachacutek, considered to be a Child of the Sun, who sparkled with the light of the dawn.
Every living thing on Earth is composed of light. Plants absorb light directly from the sun and turn it into life, and animals eat green plants that feed on light, so that light is the fundamental building block of life. We are light bound into living matter. Every living thing around us is made of light, bound and packaged in different forms and vibration. Physicists studying subatomic particles know that when you look deeply enough into the heart of matter, you find the entire universe is made up of vibration and light.
We are mistaken if we believe that the accounts of the light around the Buddha or Christ are merely myths and legends. Nor can we attribute these individuals’ radiance to some strange bioluminescence produced by the body, as if it were a kind of firefly effect. The Buddha showed us the way to enlightenment. He taught us to follow our light to attain liberation from suffering. A blinding radiance was said to appear over Christ as he was baptized in the Jordan River. When we believe that Christ may have glowed with the light of His love but that we certainly cannot, we negate Christ’s teaching when He said, “even greater things than I have done, you shall do.” We commonly consider these references to the light as metaphors. We seek illumination as some form of higher understanding. My investigations have convinced me that the ancient references to the light are fact, that can be verified through experience. Then, when we understand our luminous nature, we can shun the trappings of the material world and experience infinity.
