Strengthening Your Radiance: Be the Light

“When you understand who and what you are, your radiance projects into the universal radiance and everything around you becomes creative and full of opportunity.”
-Yogi Bhajan

Radiance is our shine—our inner light. It's what attracts opportunity and prosperity into our lives. It's what protects us from fear and hatred. Our Radiant Body is our protection; but it is also our projection, a witness to our royal courage, our grace, and our willingness to be of service to others.

As we approach the Aquarian Age, the pressure we are experiencing now will only increase. These days and times demand a strong nervous system, a clear arcline and a radiant aura; these elements, along with a vibrant Pranic Body, contribute to the health and strength of our Radiant Body. If our Radiant Body is weak, we become susceptible to paranoia and delusions, and unable to serve others or our own destiny.

Radiance is our projection. We affirm who we are through the word—Sat Nam. We experience who we are through the breath. We deliver who we are through our radiance. Yogi Bhajan often said our presence should be a healing. Can you imagine your radiance uplifting someone from across a room, someone you've never even met or may never meet? This is what is asked of us in the Aquarian Age. As leaders, teachers, healers, and yogis, our presence is our radiance; and if our presence cannot deliver, nothing will.

Be the light and illumine every dark corner of the world.

"If you are human and your presence doesn't work, all the wealth and all the knowledge will not work either. Once you develop a personal discipline, your psyche starts emitting a sense of confidence, trust, and grace, and that creates love. You radiance should be sostrong, that even if a hateful person sees you, it should totally neutralize the other person's psyche so that they experience nothing but love and friendship."
-Yogi Bhajan, 11/27/95
