What Is Light Body Activation and How to Activate Your Spirit Guide?

The evolution of mankind is progressing more rapidly than at any other time in recorded history. With growing unrest, we look not to the future but to the teachings of the past to bring greater meaning to our human existence. When we dive deeply, we find the forgotten knowledge of the Mystery Schools: legends of people levitating, yogis living hundreds of years, and even walking through walls. For each tradition, the teachings of the light body were those skills reserved for the highest initiates, forming the foundations of these god-like feats.

What Is the Light Body?

The light body is a metaphysical idea present in spiritual traditions, representing a higher, energy-based existence beyond the physical body. It symbolizes heightened consciousness, spiritual awakening, and an interconnected state. Associated with energy centers like chakras, it fosters balance, healing, and transformation. Despite diverse interpretations, the light body remains a symbol of spiritual evolution and higher self-realization.

For example, if the goal of each soul is to merge with God, then the activation of our light body is what gets us there. The light or energy body contains billions of molecules, each acting as their own cosmos. As nothing in this world is just physical, it’s this culmination of constantly moving energy creating matter. Knowing how to use form optimally was the work of ancient sages and is now becoming the spiritual practice of the modern awakened collective.

Elements of the Light Body

The human energy field is made up of several layers. The terms etheric body, mental body, astral body, and emotional body are all aspects of the light body. Beyond these densities are further ways to activate the higher functions of the light body.

In electrical impulses, energetic bodies beyond the physical can be detected. Aura photos, also known as Kirlian photography, can capture images of these bodies. Shamans and gifted healers regularly work within these fields.


This is an Egyptian term translated as Mer (light) Ka (soul) Ba (body).

It’s known as the chariot of the soul and must be activated to achieve ascension.

Drunvalo Melchizedek has taught this knowledge extensively. Specific breathwork combined with visualization can activate the light body as sacred geometry around the physical body.

Rainbow Body

Once the light body is activated, more sincere practices in absolute love are necessary to elevate the light body to the rainbow body state.

The rainbow body is the result of maintaining a constant frequency of unconditional love.

Having healed every wound, purified every thought, and released every judgment, the rainbow body will ignite. It’s an absolute unwavering of this vibration that allows us to achieve ascension.

Both Jesus and Buddha ascended in this form. In their perfection of the human, they became “gods” and showed others the way to accomplish this frequency. The teachings of both masters are instructions illuminating the path for others to follow.

Experiencing the Light Body

“If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams, and you will always look lovely.” Roald Dahl

Have you ever been around someone who exudes sacredness? Amma, for example, comes to mind. As soon as you’re in their presence, you feel peaceful, inspired, and more fulfilled. Way beyond charisma, this is a direct experience of a highly activated light body.

Being near them is discernible in your own body. The magnitude of their field influences your vision, mind, and spirit.

In the presence of such beings, we’re being activated ourselves, brought into greater spiritual alignment and shown we are capable of such mastery too.

To activate a light body is not the work of gurus and masters. It’s a way of being intended for every living being who wishes to pursue it.

The Rainbow Body of Light

Ascension and the Light Body

Once the MerKaBa is activated and our highest fields of the light body are achieved, we illuminate the rainbow body through our consistently loving thoughts and sustained ecstatic frequency. With this luminous vibration intact, we’re able to dissolve back into the source, creating any form we wish, thereby achieving immortality as it was promised.

Ascension is our graduation to full cosmic consciousness, the rainbow body is the highest graduation of the light body, and the MerKaBa must first be activated to hold these higher frequencies if we wish to ascend.

Beyond the supreme mastery of the physical form, the light body teachings are crucially important at this time for humanity. It’s in this concept we’re reminded that we’re more than physical, more than what we think and do. We’re extraordinary manifestations of a universe so much bigger than our limited scope can comprehend. 

Spiritual Growth Over Suppression

We can conceive how essential this knowledge is to the advancement of humanity, and we can also assume why it’s been so hidden from us: to keep us from achieving ascension.

Backing off the powers-that-were blame game, the fact that it’s been kept from us is a great boon. For in its suppression, it retained power. In its preservation, it gave humanity a chance to catch up.

Mass consciousness is clicking in dramatically now, grasping onto ancient teachings and seeking out transparency in all affairs. What once seemed complex is now being illustrated in memes and hashtags. A peek through any social media feed will illuminate a new trend toward reclaiming ancient wisdom. Humanity has evolved, and it’s now that we’re able to achieve these teachings with finesse and mastery.

Discerning Real From Fake Teachings

The teachings of the Mystery Schools were shared with only a select few. Initiations would bring spiritual seekers through these gateways after many years of ritual to prepare the body, mind, and spirit. While the light body teachings would have been present in every tradition, it may take many lifetimes to master. Now, however, even a YouTube search will yield hundreds of techniques.

With such vast resources available, misinformation is rampant. The specifics of the techniques have likewise been muddied. It’s important to seek direct experience with your guides or turn to trusted teachers. Use your own intuition and discernment when seeking out such guidance. Be vigilant in who you follow and rely on the clear guidance of your own spirit allies and a team of Ascended Masters to ensure the teachers’ vibration matches your own.

How to Activate the Light Body

Your light body is a vehicle to assist you in experiencing your God state, and it’s the most worthy gift you can give yourself. Don’t beat yourself up: do your best, stay in your truth, and heal missteps as they occur. Intention matched with frequency will be the surest path to ascension. Below, we share a few steps for activation:

Raise Your Vibration

Vibration and purity of intention must be in place before undergoing the activations. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Pineal Gland Decalcification

Decalcification of the pineal gland is mandatory to achieve higher states of awareness. Fluoride intentionally shuts down the pineal gland, supporting the suppression of its importance. Be conscious of your work to facilitate this healing.


The food we eat carries cellular vibrations and memories. Do you know how your meal was gathered, treated, and prepared? While a straight vegetarian diet may be optimal, small changes like non-GMO, organic, and sustainably raised animal products will go a long way toward light body activation and overall well-being.

Additionally, bless your food. Ask that the vibration match you and serve you exactly where you are now.

Meditation/ Prayer

Every breath is a prayer. Use your thoughts to connect to the universe and give gratitude for everything. Meditation will remove blockages and bring us into the stillness within, where we can connect with the wisdom of our own hearts.

Music & Sound Frequencies

Sound is the language of the cosmos. The right music, binaural beats, classical music, or even heavy metal at the right moment can break up stagnant energy and alleviate any low-vibrational thoughts.


Korean shamans use laughter as their primary healing tool. Anytime we find ourselves in a lower state, depressed, irritated, or angry, know your go-to to bring you into giggles. A YouTube video or funny joke will bring you back to higher frequencies.


Time outdoors is the most fundamental ally to change your frequency. Commune with nature to remember the rhythm and timing of the universe, which is vastly different than our human drive for instant gratification.

The Sun

The sun has been a boon to humanity in every world culture. Get some Vitamin D to lift any funk and stimulate the pineal gland chakra.

Be Clear

Dishonesty and addiction are detractors of this work. To be pure light in an active light body means holding purity in our thoughts, will, and intentions.

Be impeccable with your word and heal what clouds your mind, allowing more light to penetrate.

Light Body Activation Mediation

To prepare, find a comfortable seat without interruption. Breathe normally and direct your mind to “see” the visuals. No need for stress or strain, just give your imagination permission to create this for you.

  • Visualize yourself sitting inside a pyramid with the base resting on your hips and the tip pointing up toward the cosmos. Fill this pyramid with the color of lightning.
  • See the downward-pointing pyramid with the base at your heart and the tip resting on the earth. Fill this pyramid with the color of lightning and breathe normally for a few breaths.
  • When you can feel these two around you, exhale powerfully from your navel, sending out a sphere of golden light to encircle the octahedron.
  • Breathe deeply and allow yourself to experience this field around you.
  • When you can feel all three elements without strain, give them a spin clockwise: the pyramid first, then the sphere surrounding it. You may notice the activation of a higher frequency or a slight shift in physical sensations.

You’ve now activated the living light body and will notice a discernible difference in your body and mind.

The fuel of your light body is love.

Breathe with it, send it to others, and direct that love into the internal spaces that need healing and affirmation. Send it to your emotions, pain, physical ailments, and organs. This is the breath of life. It loves you and gives you the power to heal yourself.

Stay in this state for as long as you feel comfortable. Allow the MerKaBa to fade when you’re ready to return. This light body is available to support you anytime.

Ecstasy as Our Birthright

The truest vibration of the universe is ecstasy. Though it’s through pain that we experience separation from God, it’s in the triumphant return to him that we grow the most.

We’ve not only been taught that feeling good is bad, but we’ve also been taught to actively block joy. Through the media we watch, the food we eat, the medication we’re thrust, feeling depressed is force-fed to us, and not subliminally. Watch any big pharma commercial to hear blatantly stated, “You don’t feel good, and something is wrong with you.”

Maintaining the frequency necessary to achieve ascension is challenging. The light body can stay activated for long periods, getting us closer to ultimate enlightenment, but this final achievement of the rainbow body is intentionally difficult. The good news: there are documented cases in the ancient texts of at least 160,000 souls achieving this feat. If they were able to do it in their day, then we are so much closer to the current incarnations of evolved souls on this planet.

10 Ways to Empower Your Indigo or Crystal Children

10 Ways to Empower Your Indigo or Crystal Children

Indigo and Crystal Children are very sensitive to the energy balances in their environments. This can cause very ranged reactions in their emotions, and be quite debilitating in quality of life. Experiencing these peaks and valleys can be very trying, whether you are a parent or if you yourself are one of these gifted children. It is detrimental to their physical, emotional, and spiritual health to be yo-yo-ing back and forth, so empowering your Crystal or Indigo kids is extremely important for their futures surviving in the world.

Here are a few ideas that you can try that give the essentials of empowerment for your Children:

1. Breathing: the breath moves energy throughout the body. When Crystal or Indigo Children are frustrated, scared, hyper, or generally upset, you can ask them to take a moment. Have them stop what they are doing and breathe deeply by inhaling through the nose and exhaling through the mouth. You can tell them to really exert the out blow like they are blowing their anger. Make it a fun game, and even do it with them.


2. Smudging: cleansing your house to help clear the distracting vibrations is a great way to create a soothing home base environment. When should you do it? Immediately after a tantrum, fight, or dissonance of any kind, after you have a lot of people over and on a regular basis. Make it part of your house cleaning routine, sometimes even daily. You will notice a distinct difference very quickly.


3. Staying Grounded: another very important step, there are many methods of how to get this accomplished. If you are looking for something quick and easy, intention and visualizing are your best bets. They can be done in a fast second at any time, anyplace, without anyone even noticing. One method some practitioners advise is to ask Gaia (or Mother Earth) for her permission for your grounding cord to enter the core of her being. Then, visualize a clear cord or clear rope coming from your root chakra (tail bone area) and entering Gaia.

It grows in length and continues to grow until it has been fully anchored into the core of Gaia. This grounding cord releases negative energy and also brings in positive energy. Set your intention to send all the negative energy down this cord, physically exhale, releasing it into Gaia. After the negative energy has all been released, with intention, bring up the positive life-giving earth energy with a physical inhale. Close by thanking Gaia. Have your kids make a monkey chain cord. It’s the intention that works!
