The Light Beings


In the freshness of the forest

I like to think

there are beings of light

especially after a rain

dancing in the green scented air

some call them aberrations

of the digital age

but I think them not unlike

the perception

of fleeting flecks of light

seen against an empty sky

I marvelled at as a child

and was flatly told they were floaters on the eye

 floaters they are not

rather they speak to me still

decades later

in hushed whispers

of the mystifying mystery

of the air we breathe

and the light we see

everyday without thinking.

  2. This is great. I marvel about folks who deny what we see, hear, know–are they without imagination, or Holy Spirit, or just arrogant? God bless you today–love, Caddo

    • This was a teacher in school who had no idea of what I was asking her. Oh, well. Thanks for reading and commenting. God bless you, Ellen

      • PS: I wanted to thank you, Ellen–recently you helped someone with how to insert/upload music videos, using the media deal and copying the vid’s URL. I read your instructions attentively, and today had opportunity to try it–worked beautifully!! One more blessing in my day!! You’re terrific.

    Your deep awe and appreciation of all things natural and real is so wonderful. I believe I have seen them as well. There have been times I tried to follow them. But somehow they disappear and present themselves in a place I can’t reach.
    Very awesome post

    • Thanks so much, Yisraela. You are always so encourgaging. I miss your posts but suppose you are juggling lots of stuff right now. Love, Ellen xx

      • I have written a few since coming back. Some John has written for me as I was so depressed coming back to Minnesota. There were new ones recently my dearest.
        Take care and be well

      • Okay, I’ll look them up– I only saw ones by John consistently. Sorry you are depressed and hope things will sort themselves out for you. Love,Ellen

        Much better, thank you. Your intervention has certainly smoothed things along… 🙂

    • Let me know if you want another– now or whenever.

    I believe it’s: Chi. And it’s a rare blessing to see Chi.

    • Really? Chi? I am so impressed by what you know. Will have to look this up. Chi is the same as Ki in Japanese? Perhaps that is why I became a Reiki master.


      June 5, 2013 at 11:08 AM

      • Genie

        Yes, it’s the same. It’s known as: Prana, in India.
        I have the first and second degrees in Reiki.
        Good for you that you became a Reiki Master, I can see that you are gifted that way and it was a wise move to get it.

      • Thank you for answering a question no one else has ever answered for me. So interesting that you are a Reiki practitioner. Not that I am surprised. Thank you, Genie. xx

  6. We think we’re aware of our existence but not. It takes a gifted person, an awakened mind to feel every breath within and around, experience the magic in the harmonizing nature and life. Seems you are one of them.
    Have a nice day Ellen!

    • Wow! A lovely comment. Just earlier your comments about not making generalizations inspired me. You are an awakened soul in your relations with others!

      • I saw those beings of light.
        They are not flecks in the eye.
        They are very healing.
        I couldn’t prove that to anyone, but I know they exist.
        And that’s good enough for me.

  7. Thank you so much for your corroboration. I keep asking my husband if he can see them. Most people don’t talk about such things so I am glad to find someone else who sees them. Genie said they were “chi” so in that case, would be very healing. Thanks for writing!
