These are step-by-step instructions, more or less as given in Swami Radha's book, The Divine Light Invocation by Swami Radha. (Timeless Books).

Stand erect, feet shoulder-width apart. Relax your breathing, your head, face, and neck. Keep the eyes closed and focus them on the space between the eyebrows.

Picture above you a vast ocean of pure white, colourless Light . . . stretching in all directions, into eternity. Imagine some of that Light pouring down around you, bathing you completely in Light.

Exhale and slowly inhale, lifting your arms above your head as you smoothly and gradually tense the whole body.

Holding your breath, affirm to yourself with all the concentration possible:

I am created by Divine Light

I am sustained by Divine Light

I am protected by Divine Light

I am surrounded by Divine Light

I am ever growing into Divine Light.

Exhale, gradually relax, and lower your arms slowly.

Now use your imagination to see yourself standing in a shower of brilliant white Light.

See the Light pouring down upon you, and see a stream of that Light flowing into the body through the top of the head, filling your entire being with Light . . . as if you were a transparent vessel, being filled with liquid Light.

Maintaining this image, now with the arms at your sides, exhale, inhale and tense your body. Hold the breath and the tension, and again affirm,

I am created by Divine Light

I am sustained by Divine Light

I am protected by Divine Light

I am surrounded by Divine Light

I am ever growing into Divine Light

Slowly exhale and relax.

Concentrate on the feeling of the Light. Feel the warm glow of Divine Light suffuse your entire body, outside as well as inside.

Acknowledge silently to yourself:

“Every cell of this my physical body is filled with Divine Light;

Every level of my consciousness is illumined with Divine Light.

The Divine Light penetrates every single cell of my being,

Every level of consciousness.

I have become a channel of pure Light.

I am One with the Light.”

The Divine Light Invocation is an exercise of will, as well as an act of surrender. Be receptive to the Light, and accept that you are now a channel of Divine Light.

Express your gratitude with deep feeling and having a desire to share this gift with someone whom you wish to help, turn your palms forward.

Continuing to see yourself filling and overflowing with Light, mentally open wide the doors of your spiritual heart centre and let the Light stream forth from your heart centre, forming a clockwise spiral before you which reaches up to rejoin the source of Light above.

Into the spiral of Light, place any projects and concerns that you may have. Envision them as you would like to see them, not as you fear they are. See the Light encircle them, enveloping them completely . . . and see the spiral moving high into the sky, taking the images with them. See them merge into the source of Light and become One with the Light, received by Light.

See someone that you would like to help standing before you — or the image of a woman, a man, and a child you don't know, representing all those in need of Light at this moment — in the spiral of Light. This can be yourself, if you feel in need of Light. See them healthy, happy, whole, and strong.

See the Light stream forth towards the feet of this person. The Light encircles them and spirals upward in a clockwise direction, enveloping the body completely, and filling them with radiant pure white Light. See them filled with Light, wrapped in Light, receiving everything they need from the Light.

See the spiral moving high up into the sky, taking this image along with it. See this person merge into the source of the Light and become One with the Light, blessed by the Light.

Now relax. Bring your hands together at your heart centre in a gesture of deep gratitude for the gift of the Light, and the ability to share it.


Closing Notes

The Divine Light Invocation is easy to do, and takes only a few minutes. Don't worry about getting it exactly the way it's written, at first. Your intention and good will creates their own grace, to compensate for any slip-ups.

But do practice it as closely to the original as you can, to receive the most benefit.

Witch Tip WARNING: If someone is abusing their power, do not put them into the Light. The energy of the Light is neutral, and could be used negatively by such people.

For what to do in this circumstance, or for more detail on the Divine Light Invocation, please see The Divine Light Invocation by Swami Radha.

The Divine Light Invocation is a visualization, but in the Eastern view, that is not meant to be limited to one sense only. Use as many senses as you can, to bring the invocation to life.

If you have trouble visualizing, check out this article: So You Think You Can't Visualize?.

When you've practiced it for a while, I'm confident you'll come to agree with my experience . . .

The Divine Light Invocation is simply the most potent form of magick I have found.

I offer the Divine Light Invocation to you, knowing it's power to heal and improve your life. I offer it as one of the greatest blessings I know.

Give yourself the incomparable gift of this practice. It will change your life.

But please, don't take my word for it. Find out for yourself.

With Brightest Blessings,
