2017-april-24 The Grandmothers explain why they have come.

The Grandmothers explain why they have come.

 
“With culture so long dominated by Yang, the principle of masculine energy, Yin, the principle of feminine energy, has become deficient and weak. Woman is cut off from her own sense of power and purpose, which comprise her beauty, and feeling this lack, she seeks outer confirmation of her identity and worth. Women spend inordinate amounts of time and money in order to be confirmed from without.
 
“No matter how many “confirmation” of her beauty, her power and purpose, she receives, yet she feels the lack. This is because feminine energy cannot be conferred from the outside. Yin is. It exists for its own sake. Seeking it will only confuse the seeker.
 
“In order to confirm woman from within herself and awaken man to the comforting presence within himself, the Great Council of the Grandmothers has come. Each Grandmother is unique in her power and being and yet all are as One in this purpose-to restore Yin, the feminine energy, to full beauty/power so the world may once again come into balance. We will empower women and comfort men, awakening them both to the feminine principle.”

Standing Steady in a Shaky World

 
 
“Net of Light Gatherings in different parts of the world will begin soon, Grandmothers,” I said to the Great Council. What should be our focus at these gatherings?”
 
“Standing Steady in a Shaky World,” they replied. “Focus on holding firm to the One Love and don’t be pulled off center by any drama, no matter how compelling it may seem. Do not deviate from your focus on the One Love, no matter what occurs in the world outside; trust your heart to carry you forward. The power of your heart will rise up to match the challenges of the times you are living in. This will happen every time,” they said.
 
“Take this powerful stance and do not move from it. Go Big!
Embrace the All and when we say ‘the All’, we mean everyone and everything. No exceptions. No matter how it may appear to you, there is no ‘enemy’,” the Grandmothers declared; “there is only drama–the play of negative energy. So hold steady and observe the drama play out. Your heart will propel you into right action when action is needed. Always stand firm in the power of love and trust the wisdom of your heart. Your love IS your power,” they said. “Do not forget this.
 
“Everyone who attends our Gatherings will experience the potency of love. We will infuse each of you with power and because you are part of the Net of Light, as you receive more power, so will the Net. This infusion will magnify the reach of the Net so it can better do its job of holding the earth during this critical time. 
 
“Beginning today to rededicate yourself to the One Love and from now on hold onto that no matter what!” they locked their eyes on mine. “The commitment to Oneness will uphold you in the times that are fast approaching.” And nodding wisely, the Grandmothers said, “Share this message.” 
 
Standing steady in a shaky world
 
 
How to  Stand Steady ?
How to stand steady?
 
Last night a woman asked, “How do we stand steady in these times?”  and since she’s not the only one with this question, here are some suggestions:
 
To begin, a wise teacher once told me,“Standing steady only means that when you fall over, you get back up again.” I liked that. So, when we get knocked down, what helps us get back up?
 
Good company (people who themselves seek to “stand steady.”) People who call forth the best in us. Also included in “good company” are enlightening books, movies, T.V. programs, etc. 
 
Spiritual discipline to feed the heart: prayer, meditation, sacred singing, chanting a mantra or prayer as you go about your day. If these are tied in to particular times of the day and/or specific activities, they become a support structure you can lean on.
 
Doing regular service. Giving to others and making that a normal part of your life. Helping someone ill or infirm, volunteering, feeding the homeless, serving your community.
 
Spiritually focused meetings: coming together regularly to study the Grandmothers’ books or any spiritual book, meditate, chant the Ho’oponopono, sing and pray together.
 
You may notice that most of these activities include other people. The Grandmothers tell us not to try to get through these difficult times all by ourselves but to instead call on them and on one another. If you have more “Standing Steady” suggestions for our Net of Light family, please share them on our Facebook page.  
 
Thank you, 
Sharon

Book Quote
Call forth the ancestors
 
Whenever you come together to meditate, pray and amplify the presence of love on earth, first call on us or any form of the Divine. Also call on the Net of Light. Then call forth the ancestors. Call the ancestors of your familyline, the ancestors of the land where you where born and where you live now. Call the ancestors everywhere on earth. You may think of them as ancestors of the Light. Simply think of their Higher Consciousness and invite this enlightened aspect of them to participate in the bond of love the Net of Light provides. They too will warm to the Net of Light embrace and because they are connected to this magnificent construct, they will be able to assist the Net in holding and lifting the Earth. As soon as the Ancestors enter into communion with the Net of Light, the pain from their many lifetimes will fade and dissipate. The past will truly then be past!

2016-december-12 Do not “Play it Safe” and tarnish your character

 
 

“This is the Net of Light that will hold the earth during the times of change that are upon you. You are part of this Net. Take your glorious place.”

 

 

Grandmothers message
 
Do not “Play it Safe” and tarnish your character
 
Message from netoflight.org 
 
 
“Grandmothers,” I said, my voice shaking, “evil seems to be showing itself everywhere now–in our country and all over the world. We feel overwhelmed by negativity, helpless to do anything about it. How can we deal with the ugliness and cruelty that are surfacing today?”

The Grandmothers nodded fiercely. “It is time for you to stand up and be counted. You are our own,they declared. “You belong to us! There is no difference between what you think of as “us,” they explained, “and what you think of as “you.” You already recognize our 

magnificence,” 

 

they said. “Well, you too are magnificent. Powerful, wise, and strong. How could you be anything else?  The truth is–

you are we and we are thee.

 
“Stand tall. Speak your truth and be yourself. Hold to what you know and step into your power. The evil you see needs to be named. Name it! Call it for what it is. Many refuse to name it; and many more refuse to recognize it for what it is–evil. There are even those who pretend that what is taking place in the world today is not important. Do not do as they do,” the Grandmothers shook their heads.
“Speak the truth. Even when others deny the truth, you must speak it. Speak it clearly and speak it kindly. Do not threaten or shout and at the same time, do not equivocate. Never make excuses for yourself and never make or accept excuses for anyone else. Each of you is responsible for your every thought, word and action. Each one will have to answer to a higher power, so do not “play it safe” now and tarnish your character. Speak the truth and do not hold back. Now is the time for integrity. Now is the time for courage.
“You were put here on earth to be yourself–to be the divine one you are, not to please others. You are part of the radiant Net of Light. How could there be anything for you to fear in this life? BE who you are. BE what you are. Anchor the Net of Light and tell the truth. Live our message, and go forward as the walking blessing you were born to be. Never fear. We are standing with you.”

Net of Light and Grandmothers Speak

2016 November 14th – After the U. S. election 2016

“After the election in America I asked the Grandmothers, “Now that it’s over, what can we learn?”

“First,” they replied, “let us explain some things. You have elected, not a man, but a ‘moy’ to lead you. He is a boy in an old man’s body. Moys are a combination of man and boy, but mostly boy. They are large and have loud voices so people mistake them for men, but they are not men. A man thinks of the common good while a moy has not learned to think

of anyone but himself. He has not fully developed and is still a child.”
“The time you are living in is called the age of destruction,” they said, “the Kali Yuga. It is the lowest point. At this time evil rises to the surface to be destroyed. This dark-age takes place just before the arrival of the in-coming Golden Age, so today you are watching out-of-balance Yang energy creating destruction all over your planet. This IS the Kali Yuga. You have heard and read about it and now it has come.”
“Your country has just elected a moy to be its next president. Russia as well as Syria are already run by moys, while Africa is overrun by them, each moy creating havoc in his area of that continent. The Philippines is run by a moy and so are several other countries. Is it any wonder that the world is lurching from crisis to crisis?”
“This is what is happening on earth now and because it is, you must learn to cope with this energy. You cannot reason with it because it is entirely destructive. Instead you must hold steady within yourself and observe its wild behavior from a position of power. If you do this, it will not be able to feed on you. Your steadiness will help contain its rapacious energy and it will not be able to do as much damage as it would otherwise.
Call on us, call on the Net of Light and hold Sacred Space. Be mindful of who you are! You are a great being, here on earth to occupy a steady place in an unsteady world. You can do this! You are not weak and helpless. Within yourself you carry the great holding power of Yin. Call on it now. Live with it. Be as you were born to be.”
“We ask one more thing of you. At this time reach out to one another in service. Many are suffering now. Feed the hungry, visit people in hospitals and prisons, provide shoes to those who need them, help the animals. If each of you plunge into one activity of service, together you will do great good, turning many hearts to light. Find a service project for yourself. We ask this of you because we know who you are. You are our hands and hearts on earth. You are greatness itself.”

2016-november-03 These are not “Good” times. These are “Great” times, Godly times.

Take your glorious place.”

 
 
 
These are not “Good” times. These are “Great” times, Godly times.—the Grandmothers
“We are watching you as you struggle to find safe harbor in the world around you as storms and disappointments rage everywhere. Nations are quaking now, the land under your feet is quaking, hallowed institutions are falling and it’s difficult to find steady ground. We understand what it’s like for you at this time and so we have come to uphold you.
“What is taking place in your world is not a terrible mistake. The present upheaval in society must occur. And no good will come from blaming others for the ills you see around you–for which of you is blameless?
“What you are witnessing isThe Great Shift that was foretold long, long ago. It is here now and you have a part to play in it. Whenever you link with us or with any form of the Divine you love, you are able to hold steady, even while everything about you is collapsing. At this point in time it is impossible to find stability in the outer world, so don’t waste your time looking for it.
“Do not respond to this world-wide upheaval by falling into despair and hiding yourself away, but instead gather with those who, like you, are also seeking the highest good. Call on us, hold to the Net of Light, and come together to study our books and messages. You will find what you need.
“You are supposed to be here on earth. You took birth at this time in history because you wanted to be part of this great change. So quiet your heart now as you turn within to the presence that has never left you and never will. Hold to this inner place of silence and from here we will guide you.”

Letter from  Dutch grandmothers

 

Our Dutch Net of Light Team was invited to a beautiful retreat center in Germany. We met wonderful people there, living a simple and conscious life, very gentle people who welcomed us warmly as ‘the Grandmothers’. They asked if we would be willing to tell them about the Grandmothers and of course we said Yes!
So we decided to do a mini-workshop: Babs would explain the Grandmothers, Marie-José would lead a meditation on the Net of Light, Carla would lead the Empowerment ceremony and Annemarie would let them draw a card with a quote from the books. Jenneken had brought with her a net and a globe to represent the Net of Light covering the earth.
Much to our surprise 15 people showed up! And they were all interested and took the ‘event’ in, very open and seriously. They loved the meditation, almost everyone wanted the Empowerment, and some men wanted to receive the Cloak of Comfort. I had the honor to give the cloak to a young guy who at first was a bit hesitant about this Grandmothers-stuff. But he took everything in with such an open heart and I could see the purity in his eyes. He embraced me strongly afterwards and he was so grateful for having received this. Later that evening he studied the card with his quote and told a friend about it. That friend did not understand what exactly happened, but he saw the excitement of the young man and said: “So I get that for you the Grandmothers are for keeps?”
“Yes, sure!” the young man said, smiling, “they are fantastic!!!”
This was an extraordinary evening! We were all moved by
 how the Grandmothers made this possible for us! And I must say I felt proud to be called ‘a Grandmother’ by the people there. They said they felt our strength and warmth. Isn’t this amazing?!
And the next day we worked on preparing for the Net of Light Gathering in 2017 in Holland.
Love, Annemarie

 Your healing affects all beings 

Everything is present in this moment. The ancestors are here with you now and they are here with you always. All these so-called time periods are connected in the Net of Light. Your ancestors stand and have always stood behind and beside you, ready to assist you at every moment. They are eager to support you. Your previous selves also stand with and for you, and whenever healing takes place for
the present day you, it takes place for them too. It also takes place for those who will follow you down the family line. Your healing affects all beings. You cannot help yourself without helping everyone. Whenever you love, forgive and let yourself be loved,
you help everyone.

2016-october-01 Let a Great Reconciliation Take Place Within the Center of the United States.

What We Can Do at This Time

“This is the Net of Light that will hold the earth during the times of change that are upon you. You are part of this Net. Take your glorious place.”

 

 

Grandmothers message
“Let a Great Reconciliation Take Place Within the Center of the United States.”
the Grandmothers
The wooden spool you see below, bound with red fabric, is actually a petition of signatures presented to Congress in 1881. Such petitions were common at that time–rarely read or acted upon but instead, “bound” with red tape and tabled indefinitely.
This one holds 32,000 signatures from citizens interceding on behalf of Native Americans for the pain and injustices they had endured. “By unanimous consent … 32,000 citizens of the United States” are “praying (for) Congressional legislation to prevent the encroachment of white settlers on Indian reservations, and that the treaties with the Indians be faithfully executed.” This is a photo, of a 135-year old unanswered request.
I received this while working on the up-coming Net of Light Gathering at Salt Fork State Park in Ohio and I was struck by the feeling behind those 32,000 signatures. The prayer of these, our ancestors, is also our prayer. Today great healing is needed in our country, a healing that will bring all Americans together.
Following the Grandmothers guidance, healing will be the focus of the Ohio Net of Light Gathering which will take place Sept. 30-Oct 2. We ask you to join your hearts with ours during that time as together we reach throughout the Net of Light to help speed this “great reconciliation.”

On the road in Lithuania

 

Letter from Wilma and Harry, Dutch musicians, working with the Net of Light who are performing sacred music in Lithuania :

“It is so overwhelming what is happening here and I wanted to tell you something and share my feelings.
We have given now 11 concerts, and yesterday was representative for what is happening every time. We were in a small village, but every chair was occupied! About 40 women (and one man!)
On their faces you could read that life has not been easy for them and they had to work hard and deny their feminity. Strong, manly women. But they came anyway, curious and you could see  the wounds in their eyes, and they had therefore closed their hearts for a part.
And then, after the concert, we opened our eyes and we met 40 pair of soft, open warm eyes. Feminine power, strong but warm and  radiant and soft.
And because we had asked: no applause, and because we don’t speak each others language, there is no escape!  We just sit there and look in each others soul and that is the most beautiful thing that can happen. When we drink coffee, they cannot tell us something about their experience, but they put a hand on their heart and we understand.
And we see that divine feminine power cannot be destroyed, and  is longing to be awakened.
I am so deeply grateful that Harry and I can be an intermediary in this transformation of these beautiful women. Their is so much love in their hearts!
Fifteen years age Harry an I wrote on a paper what was our mission and it was:
We want to bring joy and light with our music. 
And we are doing it! Every evening we deeply thank God for giving us this opportunity. I look around in our camper and I see the tomatoes, the little flowers, the herbs, and apples from the people here!  But what I really see is Love! Isn’t it beautiful? I am so happy!With love, Wilma and Harry ( who is cleaning the toilet and fills the watertank  and is doing the dishes,while I am writing my “beautiful story”, ha ha!)
postscript: The first thing to do this morning was to buy a Lithuanian paper, because we are in the paper now! Large article, photos! We are famous, ha ha!”
Book Quote

You need do nothing
Nothing but love
Take every oppotunity to love
Be the walking prayer
we’ve told you that you are
Living in love is your true nature
So live your nature
Be who you are and enjoy being alive
Hold the Net of Light and observe how the Net of Light holds you
You are precious to the Light
so of course the Net of Light
will support you at every moment
You are the Light within the Net
So claim your birthright
It is time!
