Meditation Poem: On Course

Scott Robinson // June 30th, 2024

You are here for a brief moment

You are here with the blink of an eye

You are here incarnate

You are here to learn

Balance is achieved by
falling off both ends first

Receive the teachings of manifestation

Remember the truth
….you are Spirit First

Understand the analyzer-mind’s
obsession with control

You as Spirit are meant to be
the authority in your space

Own it

You are the captain
of your ship
of your reality

A captain with loving authority

Humility with others
is your true nature

Move the analyzer-mind off the helm

Set your compass

Claim your Spiritual authority

Stay on course

Navigate around the rocks

Be the transcendent being
that you truly are

And in the end

when all the storms are behind you

In the end
when the light of dawn
glows on the horizon

In the end
when the end is in sight

In the end

You know

It has all been for one reason

To reach the destination
of Sacred Light



Being in Balance

Scott Robinson // June 30th, 2024

An excerpt from the book, ‘Navigation,’ by Scott Robinson

Being in balance is a spiritual choice.

We can choose sustainability. We can choose a more holistic way of living. We can choose to be in harmony with each other and the earth. We can shift our value system.

I’m not talking about reverting to a pre-industrial society. I believe in the gifts of technology. I’m just saying to use them consciously. I’m saying be aware of the addictive quality of products, and make conscious choices about how to use them.

As a spiritual warrior, aim to bring spiritual awareness to every decision. Is it of the highest integrity for all of humanity and the planet?

Choose the path of balance.

The Joy of Being Here

Scott Robinson // May 31st, 2024

An excerpt from the book, ‘The Journey Is The Goal’, by Scott Robinson

Can you have this moment? Can you enjoy your life? If not what are you waiting for? When you truly move into an experience of the present moment, you naturally move into a state of bliss. You are not comparing the moment to any future event, any past event; it is whole and rich and everything. Ultimately we realize that past and future don’t even really exist. The moment is all there is and in every moment there are transcendent wonders and deep learning. All we have to do is to make the choice of truly being there and experiencing it.

Meditation Poetry: Flowing Gold

Scott Robinson // May 31st, 2024


I meditate in flowing gold

I walk in flowing gold

I work in flowing gold

I sleep in flowing gold

I wash the dishes in flowing gold

I love in flowing gold

The multiverse was designed for you to live in golden Source energy

But often you choose lower frequencies

Often you choose dark greys

The programming says you don’t deserve such Light
that your lot
is to live in a low vibrational reality

This is not true

You are a spark of Source

Imbued with its energy

You are unlimited by nature

You are powerful beyond measure

So release the old messages

Let go of the old wounds

And become the bright being you are meant to be

And live in flowing gold



Present Time Renewal

Scott Robinson // April 30th, 2024

An excerpt from the book, ‘The Journey Is The Goal’, by Scott Robinson

Doing your spiritual healing is always a process of updating. You must be in present time with it because you are not the same person you were a few weeks ago. It requires examining where you are right now, remembering your path, and having the intention to be in present time with your process. Every time you do a meditation, you shift your energy and it will change your reality to some degree. When you are actively meditating, you change quickly.

Meditation Poem: With a Flash

Scott Robinson // April 30th, 2024

Petals reach to the sky
Roots push to the depths
Particles vibrate and spring to life

Forces beyond time create…what is
Celebration in every moment
Then with a flash it is gone

Gone back to whence it came
Back to pristine Source

Back to nothingness, pure potential, ready to be born again

The ebb and flow
Waves upon waves
The circle goes around and around
No beginning no end

The rise and fall of lands…peoples…faiths, realities
Only change stays constant
Only creation and destruction remain



Meditation Poem: Homecoming

Scott Robinson // March 31st, 2024

The release
The seed cast into pure possibility
The birth
The creation of an individual consciousness

From the one, comes the many
The many, made up of the one

We are not “like” Light
We are Light

Even Brighter than Light…
It is our nature,
It burns within everyone of us

And us…is the all

Forgetting this, creates the greatest sadness there is
Forgetting this, creates the descent
Forgetting this, is the dark part of the journey
We exist to push the boundaries of consciousness…in all ways

Even in the dark

But the dark it is not forever

We “do” remember

The fog lifts and there is clarity

The vision is far

The memory is sweet

It is the beginning of the end

All will return home
All will return to Light
All return to Light beyond Light

Spiritual warrior “know” where you are

And know you will not be there forever

The awakening

The remembering

The healing

The homecoming



Finding the New Way

Scott Robinson // March 31st, 2024

An excerpt from the book, ‘The Journey is the Goal,’ by Scott Robinson

You need to help your body adjust to the idea it is OK to go into the unknown because there are a lot of places it will not comprehend. This is when faith comes in and plays a big role in the journey. Bodies do not have faith; spiritual beings do. Bodies want the hard facts. You have to consciously choose and convince your body to give you, the Spirit, the time and freedom to move forward. “I don’t know what my new reality is going to be because I am not there yet, but I know it is OK to let go of these pieces because I don’t want to live them anymore.” The more you touch into yourself as Spirit, the more you touch into Source, and the more faith you have.

Finding Balance with Consciousness

Scott Robinson // February 29th, 2024

An excerpt from the book, ‘The Journey is the Goal,’ by Scott Robinson

When you start to balance Spirit and body, you begin to realize that every moment and act is valid. Deep spiritual work and house-cleaning are of equal significance if you can be present, as Spirit, for them both. Nothing battles the other. Nothing tries to erase the other. Every act is a conscious act. When you tune into this concept, you begin to see it is possible to be spiritually conscious of virtually everything going on in your life. It is not that hard. You might think it would be too complicated, but you start to notice where everything is on an energy level and how it fits together.

A Point of Power

Scott Robinson // February 29th, 2024

Washed and tumbled in relentless fragility
The balance of strength
The net of time
The web of continuity
And a gasp of life

The point of entry
The art of departure
Hang under a primal sky
Like a rain drop in flight
On an embryonic night

A point of power
A source of life
A fledgling love
In a passionate embrace of Light

Cells divide
The day breaks
And the Earth cracks its stony crust
In the beginning…

Scott Robinson

Scott Robinson is the founder and spiritual director of Lightwork Spiritual Development, based on Gambier Island, B.C. For more than 30 years, Scott’s spiritual evolution has been his life focus, along with helping others discover themselves as spiritual beings.

Even in earlier stages of his life Scott lived outside the confines of mainstream society as a hippie kid, musician, video artist, photographer, poet and world traveller. Spiritually aware from childhood, he could see energy, and he knew there was a bigger picture than the material pursuits of life.

His spiritual purpose took shape in his early twenties when he discovered a meditation style that was an immediate fit. He dove deeply into spiritual studies, deepening his clairvoyant abilities and learning the art of self-healing.

Scott is constantly pushing the boundaries of spiritual knowledge. Through teaching, writing and photography, he empowers others to become conscious, bright spiritual beings on the path to freedom.

Scott is also Chair of the Board, chief visionary, and manager of the Lightwork Ecovillage, the Gambier Island sacred site that is home to the Lightwork practice.

She started her conscious spiritual journey in her mid-twenties but it wasn’t until she came across Lightwork in 2002 that she found a meditation practice that really worked for her.

She was previously the Program Director at Hollyhock (Canada’s leading educational retreat centre) and is now a self-employed bookkeeper.

Julia received a Bachelor of Business Administration from Simon Fraser University in 1994. She received a permaculture design certificate in 2000.

Julia Thiessen

Her move to the West Coast allowed her to become involved in the Lightwork Ecovillage, where she continues to deepen her meditation practice and learn life lessons ( really can grow kale year round!).

Julia is a certified Lightwork Teacher. She offers Lightwork Level 1 and Level 2 classes for beginners, as well as private energy reading sessions.

Cathy Belgrave

When Cathy signed up for her first Lightwork class, she entered brand new territory. Coming from a scientific background, meditation was well outside her normal repertoire but she felt compelled to try it.

Without even being able to describe how, she shifted perceptions in all parts of her life and began making decisions that decreased stress. Encouraged, she thought she would keep meditating until it no longer felt like a fit. That day never came. She’s now a committed Lightwork practitioner and teacher.

Cathy offers Lightwork Level 1, Level 2, private classes and energy reading-healings. She blends her passions for writing, teaching and meditation by offering creative writing workshops for children and adults.

Darci Rosalie

Darci discovered Lightwork meditation in her last month of nursing school. She realized she wanted a totally new way of coping with stress.

So she turned down a fancy job in California with a big signing bonus and season’s tickets to her favourite football team. Instead she registered for Lightwork's beginners class and never looked back.

Throughout her healing journey Darci has witnessed how meditation has the power to shift tough situations and heal what needs healing.

Her favorite thing about being a Lightwork teacher is the simplicity and presence of being in the moment. The big and small of the universe come into focus and make room for significant awareness and healing.

Darci graduated from the Lightwork Apprenticeship program in March 2014. She offers energy reading sessions and meditation classes in a loving, supportive environment.
