Gratitude For Right Now

Scott Robinson // October 31st, 2022

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

The spiritual warrior knows the tropical beach is not better or more valid than a quiet afternoon at home. Fundamentally they are the same.

You can heal yourself by seeing the ways you believe your happiness is external to you; that it is somewhere ‘out there’. What programming leads you away from this moment where everything is already as it needs to be?

Because it’s all right here, right now. Life is complete and whole as it is.

Yes, there is healing to do as you create freedom for yourself, but at the same time, there is only now. The present moment. So if you’re waiting for a different reality to show up, you are missing your life.

Meditation Poem: Unbelievable

Scott Robinson // October 31st, 2022


To the waters

Thank you for life


To the sky

You are our protection, our aura


To the soil

You nurture all


To the fires

Renewing rebirth


We walk the manifest path

with love, frustration and desire


I sit and adore this earth, this realm

and I know it is not forever


Forever exists outside of this place


This creation is a work of art

an expression of our creative nature

its detail profound

its beauty unbelievable


How much can we have it?


This intimate masterpiece of the Spirit


Meditation Poem: Let go

Scott Robinson // September 30th, 2022

As time slows down I ground and sigh
Because I know now, something must die
I must take my world and let it go
Knowing a new one has begun to grow

That old reality will be greatly missed
But on the horizon is a new bliss
With ease I let go of this life’s pain
As I feel both the sun and rain

With a step toward the light I find
A shift into wholeness of Spirit and mind
Letting identity go allows me to see
That inside I know I just want to be free

After years of holding on
I finally know
That to be truly free
You have to let go



In order to have you must let go

Scott Robinson // September 30th, 2022

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

You must let it go. This applies to everything, including the things you want most in life. The old cliche of “if you love something set it free” is based in spiritual truth. Practicing non-attachment is one of the more challenging things for the human body, because the body believes that if you want it you should hold onto it tightly. This is not the way of Spirit, of the universe. As Spirit we understand that if we want something we need to let it go and the more we want it the more we need to release it. This does not mean we go into apathy; “who cares”. It means we can be passionately involved with something and at the same time not be attached, being able to let it go.


Meditation Poem: The Forever Now

Scott Robinson // August 31st, 2022

As past and future dissolve
This moment is everything that is…

No more waiting, no more tomorrow, only now remains
Time, water, air, breath, and life become one
Whirlpools vortex years into light then ripple away
Piercing the vial of time
And with a flash I am crystal clear presence

Every cell vibrates in now
Sky more blue
Body more real
Spirit more present
Future disappears
Past fades away

Now expands and envelops every molecule of me
My heartbeats, I am with every pulse
My lungs fill with rich air
My eyes bring colour in all directions
I am here, Yes
The honour is mine

Thank you,
Let go of tomorrow
It will be what it will be
Let go of yesterday
It was what it was
Hello to now

The forever now
The eternal now




The Heartbeat of Manifestation

Scott Robinson // July 31st, 2022

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

Listen to your heartbeat. How many heartbeats do you get until this manifestation is complete, this cycle is complete? The cycle of one life. The cycle of this Earth is also made up of heartbeats. Civilizations are heartbeats. Everything is always in constant motion. Nothing is ever static. Permanence is simply a limiting idea. Everything is going through cycles of life and death, beginning and end. As a lifetime ends, it is the end of a heartbeat. When a lifetime begins, it is the beginning of a heartbeat; thump, thump, constantly moving through realities, heartbeats within heartbeats.



Meditation Poem: The Lesson

Scott Robinson // July 31st, 2022


Change is growth
Growth is change

We touch truth, we take the step
In circles and cycles the cosmos flows
And in the centre the Spirit knows

Yes I know you are here
Yes I can feel your love
You touch me so gently, like a warm breeze
With such ease you are all
Only revealing yourself when asked
Ascent and descent, the lesson is free will
Ascent and descent, the lesson is love



Meditation Poem: Sunlight Seas

Scott Robinson // June 30th, 2022

Plunging through waves of gold

Cascading Light reveals you

In the sunlight seas of your depths

Time falls away

The walls crumble

Truth pulses

And I bask in your Light



Radiate Bliss

Scott Robinson // June 30th, 2022

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

Decide what reality you want to create and put that out into the world. Give it away. Let it go and ultimately you will receive it back. If you want to learn all of the time, then teach all the time. If you want to receive love from others all the time then love others all the time. Ultimately this comes back to you. If you want to be in a state of bliss it doesn’t work if you just sit around waiting for it. You simply need to be there and put it out. Simply be in a state of bliss and let that radiate out into the world, it will radiate back to you. Remember anything you put out into the world you will receive back sooner or later. Make your choices from this place.

Meditation Poem: Kiss Freedom

Scott Robinson // May 31st, 2022

Rushing heat bright and grounded
Soothing all of us
Close, close
Yet expansive beyond beyond

Awash in the warm loving ocean
A darkness to slay
We are of the one who creates the skies
Then soars in them

We are of the one who creates the seas
Then plunges into them

We are pure power, pure Light
With an unlimited nature

Time to grasp the golden sword of awareness
Send the limiter back to the depths

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 has a Masters in Strategic Leadership Toward Sustainability which she applies in collaborative projects seeking solutions for climate change.

Julia Watson

Julia offers meditation and consulting services for organizations and individuals.

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.

Julia completed Lightwork’s seven levels of training in 2010. She has been joyfully teaching meditation classes and offering private energy readings since then.

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

Julia started taking Lightwork classes by phone from Winnipeg in 2004. The classes rocked her world so thoroughly she moved to Vancouver to continue her meditation studies, eventually graduating from Lightwork's most advanced program, 'Level 7: The Apprenticeship' in 2012.

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.
