Holding the Line
 
 
I sat down this morning knowing it was time to send out a message from the Grandmothers even though absolutely nothing was moving in me.  
Nothing.  “I’m empty, Grandmothers,” I said, and then I just sat there, not expecting anything to happen.  But the Grandmothers aren’t dependent on anyone having something to say so They spoke — a good reminder of where all this information comes from.
 
“Let us wrap you” they said, gesturing with their arms,“wrap and enfold you tight in love so that nothing can get to you but love. Held like this, you will be safe,” the Grandmothers said, heads nodding to emphasize their point. 
 
“Think of us doing that now,” they suggested, “and we will. Everything, after all, begins in the mind so why not think of us encasing you in love like this. Think of it and then let us do what we’ve always longed to do —hold you tight. Cover and wrap you entirely in love. It will make us happy to do this,” they laughed,“and it will make YOU happy!
 
“These are such sobering times you’re living in now,” they said,“that it’s easy to get pulled down by them.  So many problems to fix,” they shook their heads slowly, “so much grief and pain.  But…,” then they cocked their heads and smiled, “all that will pass.  All of it will be gone.”  And then, as if to chase it away right now, “Be gone!” they shouted, and threw their arms in the air.
“You,” they quickly said, as they turned to me, “were born for joy.”  Not just happiness,” they explained,“but joy — joy pure and simple.  Joy is your birthright,” they said. “Joy connotes the presence of the Divine, the great expanding of the heart that only God’s presence can bring.  You were born for this and nothing else,” they declared, and folding their arms tight across their chests they rocked back and forth on their heels.  I noticed that now they were standing in a long line.  Shoulder touching shoulder, they looked like a company of soldiers — elder women soldiers.  Together they were ‘holding the line.’   And when I observed their position, I realized that standing like this was purposeful.  Their bodies were creating a wall, a boundary that nothing could penetrate.
“Grandmothers,” I said as I continued to stare at them, “is this you?  You look so formidable,” I continued, “so impenetrable and powerful.   “Yes,” they nodded, they said, “this is us.  What you are seeing as we stand together like this is the power of love.  We are dedicated to love,” they said, stamping their feet to emphasize the word.  “We have declared ourselves for love and so here we stand. And we will never give way,” they shook their heads.  “Nothing will penetrate the wall of love we have created here —nothing but love itself.  And now we are calling you to stand with us.”

You can register for a Gathering in Ireland, the Netherlands, Pennsylvania or Northern California. If you’d like to join us at a Gathering, go to the events page of netoflight.org.  And if you’d like to join a regional group or start one yourself and learn how to work with the Net of Light, please contact us.  
 
To hold the earth steady during these most unsteady times, we spread the Grandmothers’ message and teach others how to work with the Net of Light. This we do as service so there is no charge.  
 
 

 
Digging in — letter from Northern California 
 
 
 Letter from two Beacons in Northern California. They write:
 
“Together with some friends and neighbors, we watched an amazing series about the environment and what we need to do to help heal mother earth. Then we formed a group. We call ourselves, “Team Earth” and are getting green shirts with a picture of the globe on it. Our plan is to work toward growing our own food and sharing it with our community. More importantly, our passion is to learn and pass on this knowledge to the next generation.
 
We contacted a farmer here in town and are hoping to learn from him how to care for and grow our own crops and with his help, start a community garden. It is inspiring to have found others who want to share in this work with us. It ‘s time for a change in consciousness now. It’s time to get the younger generation involved and it’s been so rewarding to see this groups’ enthusiasm. We want to be of service and this seems a good way to achieve that.”

2019-July-18th Drop In!

2019-July-18th Drop In!

“We’re aware that only those whom we call  will respond.”

 
 
“Listen,” the Grandmothers said, and off in the distance I heard a train whistle.  Closer and closer it came and then they spoke.  “You are here,” they pointed to where I was standing.  “You are not somewhere else.  We have put you at this exact place in time, so pay attention to where you are.  You have a job to do … here.
“The Net of Light needs to be more firmly anchored to your planet,” they explained.  “The earth must be held in light during these dark times, and you are the means for this to take place.  You are the anchor,” they said, and, rising to their full height, twelve fierce-looking grandmothers cried, “Drop in!
 
“Think of the lower part of your body and feel how connected you are to the earth.  As you settle in, your awareness moves into your body trunk and you can feel this rootedness.  Your feet, hips, buttocks, and all aspects of you are anchoring into the planet,” they said.  “This earthly connection needs to occur now, and so you have been called.
“Breathe deep and breathe easy,” the Grandmothers said, “and this linkage will occur.  A current of light will run through you into the earth while a responding current flows up to you.  There is great love, an unassailable bond between you and your Mother.  Feel it,” they said.
“For too long humans have been asleep to their bond with this planet, deprived of their connection to Earth.  You have been hovering somewhere in the mental realms for far too long,’ the Grandmothers smiled, “oblivious to your Mother.  But now you are returning to balance, harmonizing your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual aspects together.  This is good.
 
“We are calling you now, and we’re aware that only those whom we call will respond.  The number of people drawn to our work is not great,” they said, “but the power they wield IS great.  If what we are asking of you resonates in your heart, then and only then will you respond.
 
“Sink into your connection with your Mother,” the Grandmothers said, “call on the Net of Light to hold you steady and experience as you connect with Earth and all life on Her.  Let the Net of Light hold you and know that as you open your heart to the blessings that are pouring into you, because you are part of the great Net of Light and are willing to receive, so can everyone else.  Open to the love of the Mother so that all may join you and, like you, be blessed.”  Then the Grandmothers sang:
“Net of Light, Net of Light, Floating in the Net of Light
 Net of Light, Net of Light, Holding in the Net of Light
 Reaching out, Reaching in, Reaching through the Net of Light
 Loving all, Serving all, Holding all within the Light
 Net of Light, Net of Light, Net of Love and Net of Light
 Net of Light, Net of Light, Our Hearts are One within the Light.”

2019 July-1st No one is so special….

2019 July-1st No one is so special….

No One Is So Special that the Net of Light Will Not Work Through Them.

 
~ Note from Sharon
 I received something this morning and I want to pass it on to you.  I was reflecting on the state of the world, the daily bombardment of bad news: Stalin being celebrated as a hero, animals being tortured in Indonesia, politicians lying and cheating in new, creative ways — the usual thing.  But as all of that ran through my mind, suddenly I became aware of something else.  Something beautiful, light and potent was trying to get my attention. 
 
So I sat down, called on the Grandmothers and waited.  I didn’t have to wait very long.  Soon warmth and light began to download into and through me, running inside my body/mind and then outward from me to all the ‘horrors’ that had been coming to my mind.  Light began to flood me, and flood all those beings and situations too.  It was instantaneous. 
 
I sat with my palms up to receive, saying ‘yes’ to the good that was just waiting to pour into me and pour in, it did.  Wow!  What a response!  It was flooding though me to the animals in Indonesia, to all those grasping politicians, to every crack and crevice on our planet.  An instant downloading and flood of light.  And I just sat there and received.  I was the plug in the wall and the current was flowing.
 
Whatever I thought of received light, healing, and blessing.  It came to me then to think of all the places I’d ever lived and of the Net of Light anchoring there, so I did that.  I thought of Indiana, Boston, Italy, and California and then I thought of all the places I’ve ever traveled to in order to anchor those places too.  This was a long list and as I thought of the Net of Light anchoring and blessing each of these places tears began to course down my cheeks, down pouring along with the light as the list went on.  On and on. 
 
Then I thought of the animals, those that are still with us and those that are no longer here on earth.  As I sat there on the couch I let all this light pour into and then out from me to every living thing.  Why not?  At this point I was fully plugged into the Source and the flow was constant. 
 
I sat like this for maybe ten minutes.  That’s all, but I can still feel the grace of what happened.  I was allowed to be a vessel for love and the grace of that experience is still with me.  I’m still crying, but these are tears of joy.  I’m so grateful to be a vessel like this, a vessel for love in a love-starved world.  And I want to remind you that you too are such a vessel.  If you ask to let love in, ask the Net of Light to flow through you to a love-starved world, it will.
 
Here is something you may wish to remember. Once the Grandmothers told me, “No one is so special that the Net of Light will not work through them.”  Believe me, it’s true.

2019-June-18th Anchor Light Where You Stand
 
Anchor Light Where You Stand
 
 “At this very moment you are standing at a point of power on the Net of Light,” the Grandmothers said, “linked with the Source.  Here you stand and for your commitment to anchor the Net of Light at this critical time, we say, ‘Thank you!’
“The times you are living in are difficult,” they said, serious looks on their faces.  “The times are difficult, but no matter how ugly things may look, or how challenging your life may seem, we assure you that everything is unfolding as it should.  There is purpose to the events occurring now. We understand that given some of what’s taking place on earth, this may be difficult for you to believe.  Perhaps you feel that life is random, that your life is random, but we assure you that nothing could be further from the truth.
 

“You are not a mistake, nor is the path of your life controlled by happenstance.  At this very moment you are exactly where you need to be in order to anchor the Net of Light at this spot on earth.  We have often told you,

‘No one comes to this work unless we call them.’   Well,”

they said, looking me in the eye,

“we   have   called   you, called you so we can work with and through you.  You are an earth anchor for the Net of Light and together we will hold your planet during this most unsteady time.”

“It is because you are this anchor, because you have responded to our call that our work can take place,” they said.  “We remind you that on earth, the Divine must work through human beings.  So we ask you to think of, magnify, and cast the Net of Light for everyone.  Do this each day, for ALL Beings. No exceptions,” they eyed me to be sure I understood.   “The light and love within the Net are there for everyone. Unfortunately some have forgotten that they are part of the great Net of Light, forgotten they are part of the One Love.  But whether they remember it or not, they ARE part of the Net.  So each time you call on it, please recognize the Net’s presence within yourself and within everyone.
 
“Don’t be deceived by your less awake brothers and sisters,” they said. “No matter how they may behave, they too are part of the One Love, and each time you affirm this truth, they are able to awaken a bit more.  It’s no crime to be asleep,” the Grandmothers said, “but this is not the time for sleeping.  It’s time to wake.  So when you cast the Net of Light, call on the sleepwalkers too.  Call them to the Light.  Your compassion for them will help them remember who they are.  Your generous spirit will help them rejoin the Family of Light.
 
Beloved Ones,” they said, “stand steady.  Don’t be afraid of the storms and dramas around you, but do the job you were born to do.  Anchor light — right where you stand.”

2019-June-7th Each person is a Jewel in the Net of Light

Each Person is a Jewel in the Net of Light

Every now and then we go back to the first time the Grandmothers spoke of the Net of Light.  This is from a journey I took to them in 1997 and it’s as relevant today as it was then.  Hear the Grandmothers speak.  ~ Sharon 
“Each person is a jewel in the Net of Light,” they said, “and helps hold the Net together.”  As they spoke, once again I saw the women to whom I had passed their empowerment.  These women seemed to glow now, and behind them stood rows and rows of others.  As I watched all this, the Grandmothers said, “This shimmering in the Net that you see is jewel light.
 
“Know the reality of this Net, for by knowing it and being at one with it you will do untold good.”  I listened.  “Without thought, without effort, without awareness that it is happening, but just by being at one with the power of the Net of Light, you do untold good.
 
“First think of the Net of Light, and then think of yourself as a shimmering point of light on the Net.  This will give you peace, joy and belief in Self, Capital S!” they said.
 
“The work of the Net of Light is done through you, it is done silently.  The brain does not control this.  This work is done through the jewel within your heart, through the Being that you are.  All good and goodness flow from this.
 
“You are connected to us and to one another through the Net of Light,” they said.  “Take joy in that.  It is a special blessing to be part of this Net, and no accident.”  They showed me then that I was to pass the Net of Light on to others….

Hands that Work are Holier than Lips that Pray
 
 
“Hands that work are holier than lips that pray,” the Grandmothers say, as they give us this opportunity to be of service ‘in Paradise’. Trisha, our Net of Light group leader and co-ordinator for Northern California has put this fund raising effort together for the survivors of the fire there. 
The Grandmothers tell us, “You are far greater than you think you are. You were born for these times…in fact, you stood in line to be here now.” So, let’s fulfill a bit of that greatness and do something beautiful and practical for those who are suffering. Hold these people in the radiant Net of Light as together we put our hands and hearts to work.

2018-September-20th Time for My Own to Come to Me

2018-September-20th Time for My Own to Come to Me

Time for My Own to Come to Me

Today, when I went to the Grandmothers to ask for a message for the next newsletter, to my everlasting surprise, the Great Mother was with them.  She stepped forward, and opening her arms, said, “Daughter, it is time.  Time for my own to come to me.  Much has gone into this moment,” she said when she saw how surprised I was to see her, “much preparation and work.”  I could only nod in agreement, while the Grandmothers, flushed with happiness, beamed on her.
 
“Now we will work together,” the Great Mother said, turning first to the Grandmothers and then to me, letting us know we’d all be working together now — the Mother, the Grandmothers and we humans.  The Grandmothers’ role of intermediary between the Divine Mother and human beings had at last born fruit.  She was here.  All along the Grandmothers had told me, “We have come to pave the way for the return of the Mother to Earth.  In life,” they’d explained, “first comes the Grandmother, and then the Mother.  So we’ve come in order that she may follow.”  And when I realized that THIS was the moment they’d been talking about, that the Mother is in fact HERE NOW, I began to cry.
 
“Yes,” the Grandmothers and the Great Mother said.  “You have long awaited this moment and so have we.  The time has come at last.”  As I watched them standing together, all I could do was gulp as tears kept pouring down my face.  I don’t think I’d ever realized what it would be like when the Mother returned.  What it would feel like, what it would mean for us all … In my mind, this had been something that would take place at some ‘far off’ time in the future, so now that the time had actually come, I couldn’t stop crying. Crying and breathing.  That was it.
 
“We will guide you,” they said when they saw my state.  And then they began to laugh; happy to see me so overcome with joy.  “Grandmothers,” I said, “I don’t think I really believed this would happen.  I mean, I wanted to believe it, but I think I always doubted — at least a little.  And now, to see you here, standing together … It’s more than this heart can take in.”
 
“We know, we know,” they chorused.  “You’ve been forced to live without your mother for so long, that you can’t fathom that She’s actually here. We understand.”  “It’s true,” I said, “but I want to fathom it. I want to believe it.”
 
“Be easy on yourself,” they said.  “Everything will happen in good time. You can take this in bit by bit.  Bit by bit,” they repeated, and then the Mother said, “Take all the time you need to absorb it.”  And laughing, she added, “I’ll still be here. I’m not going away.”
 
When I asked to understand more about the return of the Mother, she said, “The moment of my return has been a long time in coming and now that it’s here, it will change everything.  More will be coming,” she assured me. “Expect more, but right now, begin to work with me.  Think of me, call on me,” she said. “I will teach you how.”
 
Note from Sharon: I’m still absorbing this experience and though I have no idea what may occur next, whatever this ‘more’ is, I’ll pass it on to you.  In the meantime, all I can say is, this is a far bigger adventure than I thought.  Please fasten your seat belts.

“Speak from your heart,” the Grandmothers said as soon as I stood before them … “and, as your heart speaks,” they smiled, “know that is we who are speaking.”
 
They waited to be sure I understood them, then added, “Uplift.  You need to be uplifted.  It is true that evil is rising to the surface on Earth now. And, as evil rises, you yourself are also rising.”  “What?” I said.  “What do you mean?” but, instead of replying, they pointed into the distance.
 
Far off, the Earth was rotating in space while up from its surface rose white, lighted forms.  “What’s this?” I asked, wondering what it could be … and then, all of a sudden I knew.  “This is us!” I cried.  “I’m seeing us! Human beings are rising up.”  I shook my head.  “We’re answering the call of the Divine.  We’re stepping into power, into oneness with the Source, and we’re rising.”  “Yes!” the Grandmothers cried and, motioning as if to draw all of us in to them, they called, “Keep coming, keep coming.”
 
I just stood, gaping and shaking my head until at last I was able to speak again.  “Grandmothers, I’m overwhelmed,” I said.  “I thought at this time our job here on Earth was to hold steady with the Net of Light and tough it out while all the garbage floated up to the surface.  But what I’m seeing and what you’re saying is more than that.  I can still see the dark stuff rising from the depths of Earth,” I said, “but many of us are also rising!”  I could hardly believe what I was witnessing.  “We’re lifting above the surface,” I said, my voice full of wonder.  “And….  a lot of us are doing it!”   I was spellbound as lighted forms now poked up all over the Earth.
 
What IS this?” I asked the Grandmothers.  “I mean, what’s causing it?” What you are seeing has been created by what you are doing,the Grandmothers explained.  “You are anchoring light on Earth and at the same time elevating life on Earth.  By working with the Net of Light and embracing a life of loving service you are having a far greater effect on the energy field of your planet than you’d thought possible.
 
“You believe in science, ” the Grandmothers said, looking me over, “yet science has thus far given you only a limited view of creation.  Because it is founded in materialism, science relates only to the material world, so, as yet there is no scientific explanation for what we are showing you. What you are witnessing here goes far beyond the physical plane,” they said.  “These days you are seeing with greater vision, and as your vision continues to flower, you will see more and get to know the lighted one you truly are.  This lighted one is having a strong effect on your beloved planet.
 
“All your life you’ve been taught that you are limited, that life on Earth is limited,” they said, eyes flashing, “but that is not true.  You are much more than can be seen with physical eyes.  Life is much more than can be seen with physical eyes.
 
“Everything we tell you is true.  We only speak truth, and, because the present times on Earth are so difficult, we knew you now needed something to uplift you,” the Grandmothers said.  “You needed to see the truth of your being.  What we have shown you today is your own love in action.  You have worked so tirelessly with the Net of Light that at this point light is lifting you!  And, as you are lifted, you are automatically lifting others.  This is what you are seeing and yes, it is taking place all over the Earth.  This is the action of love,” the Grandmothers said. “What you are seeing is love in action … and you are that.”

“Energy in society today often appears to be contracting while you yourself are longing for expansion,” the Grandmothers said. 
“Your heart wants to be lifted up, yet when you look around yourself much of what you see is not life affirming, not expansive. The daily cruelties of those in power, the small mindedness of so many, and the ever-present selfishness. Mine! Mine! Me!” they pantomimed. 
“Selfishness in every possible variation.
 
“Yes, yes, we know,” they groaned, shaking their heads. “This is the time we warned you about–when the negative energy of the past rises up and shows it’s full ugliness. Take a good look at it,” they said, “and while you’re looking, know that what you are seeing is not your own self, is not the soul of humanity, but is only the fearful, contracted side of human experience. Stored garbage from the past, they said, “variants of fear. Recognize this for what it is and then just let it be. Don’t try to argue with it or fight against it. It is foul,” they said.
“It is ugly and…, it must come to light now.
 
“Let it lie in a stinking heap, exposed to the air and light. As the light shines on it, it will reveal it for what it is… detritus from the past.  And…,” they said,“let those who are still attached to this past ugliness stay attached to it until they are stuck no more. There’s little you can do to free these people from garbage they are clinging to.  Hold them in the Net of Light,” they said, “and the radiance of the Net will begin to lift them. All things eventually pass, and this ugliness too will pass, but for now, bless those who are attached to the mess and then go on with your life.
 
“You are called to a different path,” they said, nodding to me. “Your job is not to look back, but straight ahead. You are asked to leave the past behind and stand steady in the light. Stand in the light of the One Love, undistracted by the dramas that assail you. If you lose sight of this goal you will end up wasting your life’s energy. So simply let all of it be now while you keep your eye on your goal. Stand in love,” they said,“no matter what.
 
“We ask you to call on us daily, hourly, minute by minute. We ask you to stay aligned with the Net of Light that is holding the Earth during these most unsteady of times. Let the Net hold you while we surround you. We will seal your energy field so that you remain encased in light. All the time!” they said, “no matter what. A beacon of light amidst the storm. We have told you before and now we tell you again that you were born for these times. You were born for this work. So call on us now and work with us. Call on us and stand in light!”

You are shedding another skin
 
Letter from a New Jersey Beacon:
 
Hi Sharon,
In re-reading Casting the Net, again… on page 50 where you wrote “You are shedding another skin,” and down the page, I read words I had seen before but this time I saw them in my heart and mind in a different way.
When my mother and then my friend, Penelope, passed over, I felt like I was in a state of separation and it never occurred to me that I am able to grow, very wisely, beyond separation. There was so much sadness both times but reading the quote this time, I realized that like you I am growing, still, in another way.
Like the  Grandmothers said to you, I too am growing another skin… “A Unity skin.”  It binds us to “the whole of life.”
 
The Net of Light travels through my heart and body and brings me unity with all. It is a sacred feeling. So grateful for the Grandmothers and their books. Thank you all.

2018-June 2nd Answer to a Life Long Quest

2018-June 2nd  Answer to a Life Long Quest
Answer to a Life Long Quest
 
A Beacon shares the effect of the Grandmothers and Net of Light on her life:
 
The Net of Light, and the Grandmothers, are an answer to a life long quest. I was raised Catholic, so thought becoming a nun was what I was called to. Even then I didn’t see a problem with believing in reincarnation or the Edgar Casey teachings, but in becoming a nun, I only lasted a year …
 
Life took over; I tried Buddhism, got married and then divorced. I became a teacher, raised my wonderful children to adulthood, but still felt that pull of the Divine.  I was still longing to be a channel for grace in the world, or a monk without a monastery as Caroline Myss puts it.
 
Then a Facebook message from the Grandmothers posted by someone I didn’t know hooked me, so I bought the books and read them. That was it. I’ve always been blessed to feel the Divine in my life, even when things get ‘messy’ … or maybe especially when life gets messy.  But I feel that everything I’ve done in my life has brought me to this point of working with the Net of Light and the Grandmothers and now the Great Mother.
 
It is the big doing without doing.  Or as you have written, the effortless effort. To be nothing but your glorious self, and know that THAT is what you are supposed to be.  It is walking around with this incredible secret that you are helping the world without standing on a soapbox and screaming.
 
It is a great comfort in these turbulent times; it is beginning to recognize the feminine rising in the world in subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) ways.
 
So I live in gratitude, even when the world is in chaos, knowing that I am helping light the Net and the Net is holding me up.  I look forward to each and every message from the Grandmothers.  I think a book of the messages would be awesome.  One that we could flip open and read when we need a personal reminder.
 
Thank you for everything.

Working together across borders
 
We who work “behind the scenes” in the Grandmothers’ work have discovered an unexpected blessing in our work together; we find that we are able to weave the Net of Light stronger and brighter  through our efforts to convey the messages. It all begins with Gatherings. By attending Gatherings outside their own countries, people form new connections and then there develops a need to organize and translate the material into another language. 
As an example, we’ve recently started a project to translate the Newsflashes and Newsletters into French.   Fatima — raised in France but currently living in London — is the perfect person to do this as she is our Regional Coördinator for all French-speaking countries.  Two other Belgian Beacons, Françoise and Hilda, also help with this project.  The fun fact is that when the Belgians were asked if they would be willing to help Fatima, it turned out they already knew her from previous Gatherings!
We also have a Facebook page in French, maintained by Nicole,  a Beacon who moved from the UK to France. Nicole posts the French translations on this Facebook page.
So if you know of anyone who would like to receive the Grandmothers’ messages in French, ask them to email to newsfiletdelumiere@gmail.com and we will put them on the list.
