“Speak to us: We are here for you when you need us”
Some of us who are touched by the message of the Grandmothers Net of Light may wish to help spread the word by hosting a local group as an act of service. There are only three ‘rules’ to running a local group and these are by request of the Grandmothers:
1 – to work with the Net of Light at each meeting:
The Grandmothers explain that whenever we come together, working with the Net is a service we perform for ourselves and everything that lives, and that each time we work with the Net of Light, we magnify it’s power. For most people, working with the Net of Light takes the form of meditation, but you are welcome to get creative so long as the core concept is as the Grandmothers have shown us. (see Sharon’s example of the Net Of Light Meditation here)
2 – to offer Empowerments when needed:
This may not be every time you meet, just when new members come, and wish to receive.
(see Sharon giving the Empowerment here )
Know that the Grandmothers will speak and work through you , however if you need a ‘script’ here is the explanation and an example. Please don’t feel limited by it, it is something to work from if you don’t know where to start. The Grandmothers Empowerment explanation . (click here for the translated spanish version )
3 – not to personally profit from your meetings:
We can invite voluntary donations towards the work but this shouldn’t be a barrier for those attending, unless you need to recoup costs such as room hire. Also, meetings shouldn’t turn into business networking opportunities, either for you as host or for those attending. If people wish to chat and exchange contact information try to make sure it happens outside of the meeting space. (see Net of Light Monetary Philosophy here )
The format and structure of meetings is very individual. Ask/allow the Grandmothers to do all the work! Relax and work in a way that makes you comfortable, and trust the Grandmothers! It really isn’t about us, our capacities, skills and experience, except in so far as it’s helpful for holding the space and managing any group dynamics. There are plenty of resources and suggestions for activities. Each of Sharon’s three books has a final chapter containing all the meditations. There are also interviews, songs and meditations on-line: go to the media tab on our website or look for more video material here. We highly recommend our new video of the Net of Light Meditation. It is just beautiful!
It might be very helpful to attend some other Beacon’s meeting for a while before starting, to feel more comfortable with the materials and possible formats. If that’s not possible your Regional Coordinator (RC) will try and match you with an existing Beacon for more long-distance support and mentoring.
Meeting of One: Solace and Support with wisdom from Sharon. We are never alone; our meeting is with the Grandmothers. Sparkling and uplifting – when we may be doubting our purpose in running a meeting where you are holding space alone.
