    The Light Beings Explained The Light Beings Guardian Aug , The Humankind yes, we are all Light Beings And it is a philosophy that many people believe And it has some biblical back up Because in each individual s heart radiates God s divine light Therefore, inside, we are all little flashing, shiny lights This light is our own inner being or soul. Being Light Dec , Directed by Pascal Arnold, Jean Marc Barr With Jean Marc Barr, Romain Duris, lodie Bouchez, Isabelle Candelier. What Does It Mean To Be the Light Susie Draper Mar , To me, being the light doesn t mean being a perfectly positive person who is blissfully happy all the time and never makes mistakes It means doing things that make me feel free and peaceful, surrendering control, trusting my intuition, showing compassion and kindness to myself and others, and believing the simple truth that I am enough It is about bringing light to the places that are Light Beings On Earth On Earth With Universal Love In Sep , Light Beings Discover Your Soul Mission When a Light Being arrives here on Earth, they do so in a human body They are born into this world as a human being with no knowledge of their true past or true self The reason for this is that these beings usually exist at a much higher vibrational frequency than we do. We Are Beings of Light Ascension Now The energy, or light, we usually perceive is in the range of physical vibrations So we may perceive a person as a physical object , but even the substance of the physical body is energy, and therefore part of the same spectrum as light. What Does the Bible Say About Being A Light Bible verses about Being A Light You are the light of the world A city set on a hill cannot be hidden nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven John Inspirational Quotes On Light AwakenTheGreatnessWithin Light attracts light Warsan Shire Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness Desmond Tutu To love beauty is to see light Victor Hugo An empty lantern provides no light Self care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly Anonymous . beingoflight to see and understand all things in the True Reality of Light and Being And the ability to enter the inner realm of souls, has nothing in common with an Out of Body Experience, and a journey into the astral realms The inner Kingdom can only be entered by those who are permitted therein. Contact With Beings Of Light The Amazing true Story of May , Contact With Beings of Light is truly an amazing tale of Dorothy Wilkinson Izatt Using an ordinary mm movie camera she has filmed hundreds of sequences of unexplained, yet authenticated, pictures of UFO s, ETs, and anamolies.

    1. Roy Travers is helping a friend set up a bouncy castle when the unthinkable happens Roy is taken into the sky by a gust of wind and he floats away on the castle His friend finds that hilarious, and it is Hilarious until Roy disappears and never comes back Roy s wife, Sheila, will stop at nothing to get her husband back, and that includes wearing a tinfoil hat and using pebbles to communicate with the aliens who have obviously taken him How far will Sheila go to get her husband back Written by He [...]


    2. Being Light by Helen SmithHelen s writing is not for everyone, her style is kind of like sushi An Acquired taste I think people will either get it or not Told in present tense, this novel does not lack for anything as many novels do with authors attempting present tense The flow still feels natural A clever twist of characters whose lives intersect.With Roy disappearing, Sheila, and Ella Fitzgerald and , we meet some of the old characters from Allison Wonderland Book one and a few new ones The a [...]


    3. It is unlikely Being Light is anything like any book you ve read before There are multiple casts of characters, which in the beginning seem unrelated Keeping track of them all is a challenge at first One thing they all have in common is they re I want to say crazy Maybe not in the sense that they re certifiable, although we do have some belief in alien abduction, so I won t rule it out But each has plenty of quirks and eccentricities Although not a sequel in the normal sense, Alison Wonderland f [...]


    4. If you have had the pleasure of reading other works from Helen Smith, such as Alison Wonderland, then you will love reading Being Light Since I enjoyed Ms Smith s writing style in Alison Wonderland, I was excited to begin reading Being Light to see if it had the same quirkiness that I had grown fond of in Alison Wonderland Helen Smith s Being Light does not disappoint We start off by meeting Roy, who is abruptly carried away in a bouncy toy in strong winds When it crashes, Roy believes his first [...]


    5. FIRSTREADS GIVEAWAYOh my, I feel put off by the cover but I m ready to overcome my prejudices and dig in.This book is a witty three ring circus Hang on to your popcorn and settle in for the big finale.I am going to seek out from this writer.


    6. Although I found the characters interesting, I have to admit that I just didn t get this one at all It could be because I haven t read the author s previous books, or perhaps because I m not British, but the intertwining stories just didn t resonate with me I kept thinking there would be a final resolution that would tie it all up into a neat little package for me, but this is definitely NOT that kind of book all of the relationships and all of the story lines are ambiguous and open ended As I g [...]


    7. After reading Alison Wonderland, I too moved pretty quickly into this book While the characters have some of the same crazy quirks and witty humor, there is a dark side to this Being Light that wasn t there in Alison I really enjoy the writing style, as it feels like real life There seems to be a certain amount of chaos, but even in the disarray, our lives are all connected Nobody stands apart from everyone else Our existences are filled with cause and effect I felt she did a great job of striki [...]


    8. Loved it I m a big fan of twisty tales and this one ended in just the right way Masterful, interesting and rather thought provoking between laughs I m a big fan of Helen Smith s


    9. In a style distinctly her own, Smith tells her story through scenes, shifting between several points of views before tying the incidents together neatly by connecting the seemingly isolated dots In this case, upwards of eight characters are involved in a story that centers not only on a missing man, but also upon animal rights, environmentalism, the definition of emotions, and attempted communication with aliens As with Alison Wonderland, she maintains that tongue in cheek tone that lends dry hu [...]


    10. This was an interesting book Right from the beginning Helen gets your attention, drawing you into the story I found myself wanting to find out what would happen to Roy Would he discover the truth Being Light, like real life, takes people and events that are seemingly unrelated and twists them all together, showing us that everything is connected somehow The lives of each of the characters started out looking like separate stories, that in the end, were neatly tied together When I first finished [...]


    11. When Roy Travers floats away in a bouncy castle and then wakes up in the care of a stranger, he assumes that he has died and gone to heaven His wife, Sheila, assumes that aliens have abducted him So, in addition to taking to wearing aluminum wrapping at the tip of her ears to ensure that she makes herself available to any extraterrestrial messages she also enlists the help of a private investigator, Alison from Alison Wonderland , to help her track him down.Helen Smith takes on an amusing journe [...]


    12. I ve read this book a couple of times now It improves on re reading and it was pretty darn good on the first reading to begin with.The new cover design my copy is one of the original covers gives a much better impression of the contents Bright, original full of colour and life A fascinatingly quirky read My mother enjoyed it too




    13. I was lucky to win this book in a contest and looked forward to reading it I wasn t disappointed, it was a quirky and fun read.


    14. After reading Alison Wonderland recently, I exchanged a couple of emails with the author and mentioned how much I missed Alison and the other characters after finishing the book She said that there was another that she had written, and promptly sent me a copy.Being Light begins with a wonderfully visual and surreal scene Roy Travers and his friend realise that they haven t done a particularly good job of securing a bouncy castle when Roy is swept away on it by a freak gust of wind As he drifts h [...]


    15. Roy Travers is helping his friend put up a bouncy castle for a fun day when he gets blown away aboard it and disappears He finds himself in Paradise with an angel named Sylvia Meanwhile his wife Sheila, unswayed by friends suggesting he might have run off with another woman or simply that he died in the freak accident, becomes convinced he has been abducted by aliens The book follows a cast of distinctive characters, whose lives are seemingly unconnected, but as the story develops the reader sta [...]


    16. Helen Smith has written a very entertaining work that is also piercing in its insight in her book Being Light.The satire about Cool Britannia opens with Roy Travers inflating a bouncy castle at a charity carnival The castle gets caught in the breeze and takes flight Roy continues to float until the castle loses air and lands on a bucolic farm When a woman informs him he is Paradise, Roy concludes that he has died and gone to heaven.He is, in fact, on the hideaway of a former circus performer who [...]


    17. I wasn t sure what to expect with this book, but found myself racing through it It is very different from other books that I ve read and I love the freshness of that.There is the quirky story line of Roy flying away in a bouncy castle and never being heard from again, and his poor, very distraught wife who is convinced that he must have been abducted by aliens because otherwise he would have returned to her Then there are also several other story lines, everything from an animal trainer being in [...]


    18. Being Light By Helen Smith While Roy Travers is helping to install a new state of the art bouncy house, a freak gust of wind picks him and the bouncy house up dropping him in Paradise, where he meets the only other resident Sylvia Meanwhile his wife, Sheila, is continuously searching for her husband after a while she comes to believe whole heartedly that Roy has been abducted by aliens and is determined to get him back Once again Helen Smith comes up with a quirky and interesting cast of charact [...]


    19. 109 BEING LIGHT, BY HELEN SMITHAnother one I couldn t finish And this one was very short, so I can hardly say I tried But I have to admit, this one is almost entirely due to my own preferences I won t even rate it, since I m sure I m being very subjective.Ever since I left my teens and stopped trying to impress other people with how cultured and witty I was, I also stopped having time for quirky and deep books That is not to say, of course, that there is anything wrong with liking them I m sure [...]


    20. I got this book as my first ever giveaway on It is not the sort of book that I would probably have picked up at a bookshop but I am glad that I gave it a chance.At the beginning I felt that I was missing out because I hadn t read Alison Wonderland which features some of the characters and I didn t know their backstory but in the end it didn t really matter As a light read it is a fun book, not laugh out loud funny for me but some moments of great observational humour and absurdity I felt there w [...]


    21. I am not sure I appreciated this book as it was meant to be appreciated, and I have spent a few days pondering how to review it This is a very strange story with too many, seemingly unrelated, quirky characters.I think the story lacks some structure, I kept getting lost This was not an easy read for me, a couple of main characters names kept getting twisted in my brain, their names were similar both started with the letter S and were about the same length in letters There are also a lot of story [...]


    22. We don t give information about extraterrestrials, we collect it Do you know where I can get information We don t give information You won t even give me information about where to get information No Being LightI d been saving this for a rainy day, because after reading Alison Wonderland, I knew that once I started reading this, I wouldn t be able to put down Being Light didn t disappoint.If I can describe Being Light in one word, it d be surreal Reading it, I felt like I d been sucked into one [...]


    23. While Roy Travers is helping a friend set up a bouncy castle The unthinkable happens Roy is picked up by a gust of wind and he floats away on the castle His friend finds it hilarious, and it is until Roy disappears and doesn,t come back Roy,s wife Shiela will stop at nothing to get him back and that includes wearing a tinfoil hat, and using pebbles to communicate with the Aleins who she believes have taken him How far willl Sheila go to get Roy back This isn,t like any book i have read before I [...]


    24. This isn t the first book by this author I have read I read and enjoyed ASIN B004KA9TTE Alison Wonderland very much and quickly decided to read Being Light Helen Smith is an out of the box thinker and her imagination is purely delightful Her characters and they truly are characters grin are always fully fleshed and I never know where Smith is going to take me So whenever I pick up one of her books, I always get that giddy feeling in the pit of my belly, anticipating the fun that s in store Recom [...]


    25. I loved Helen Smith s first novel with the sleuthing Alison Temple and her hilarious gang so I was excited to see that there was a follow up Being Light brings us another witty whodunit with the delightful Roy Travers and yet another screwball ensemble Ms Smith has a unique, talented writing style mixing humor with fast paced storytelling that I just don t see enough I can t wait for the next one


    26. This book is definitely a different comedy novel than I ve read before We begin with our main character Roy, who happens to be suddenly swept away by a strong gust of wind while trying to install one of those bouncy castles You know, the ones you can t keep the kids off of at the fair, flea market, etc Full Review at Coffee Literature.Being Light Review


    27. I was very disappointed with the first book by this author, but had previously purchased this book, so figured I would give it a shot It was better than the first one, the book was written better and I enjoyed the characters and story line, which was much interesting and held my attention somewhat better.


    28. I didn t get it stupid unreal people doing stupid unreal thingsfloating away in a bouncer, falling and waking up thinking you re in heaven, at an isolated beach house with one woman a wife who doesn t give up looking for you, even when convinced you ve been taken by aliensd too many other freaky characters that didn t make sense
