“One human being who reaches enlightenment, can potentially change the world forever.”

-Guru Bhaneshwaranand


Our journey to fulfill our soul’s growth begins once we take our first step on our divine path; it is a personal journey within and one that must be taken alone, but its rewards are boundless! The Golden Light Academy is here to help you find your divine path and guide you along the way.

David Lacopo

Founder, The Golden Light Academy
He woke with an angel by his side after experiencing the Dark Night of the Soul in his early childhood, and as the angel lowered a sphere of divine light upon his head, his mind filled with divine knowledge. These angelic experiences have continued regularly throughout his life and have guided him on a journey to help others reach higher states of consciousness.

There are several types of meditation exercises that will help us release suppressed emotions, experiences, and traumas; will elevate our state of consciousness and alleviate depression, anxiety, and panic; will cast away darkness and all emotional and mental torments; and bring our physical body in a state where it can restore its divine health and strength.

Darkness follows a dark path,
Fulfilling dreams and desires of a broken heart,
And as a shadow reaches for a brighter light,
It is left behind as it may never rise.

Our darkest fears cover our deepest wounds,
Suppressing our freedom to reach a greater version of self,
And as darkness hungers to reveal our sins,
It is left behind as it may never rise.

Our conscious self rises and moves beyond,
The bottomless pit; the grasp of darkness,
And no longer tormented in the shadows of fear,
We finally see the illusions of fear.

The light alters our perception of life,
As our consciousness reaches into a higher state,
And all that remains as we move forward in time,
Is unity in love.

What Is PTSD and How To Begin Our Healing Journey?

When we are exposed to a series of traumatic experiences, our physical body begins suppressing them—even as they occur—to protect our state of consciousness, but with time, our physical body will reach a point where it becomes overwhelmed and can no longer contain them; our physical body isn’t capable of releasing these energies and begins breaking down, impacting our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. Symptoms may include physical pain, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, insomnia, intrusive or disturbing thoughts, emotional numbness, and fear.

Only once we guide these energies to rise and become conscious of them, may we release them and be healed, but it may be a challenging and unpleasant task as many experiences will be re-lived. We can also venture deep into our subconsciousness to uncover them.

Here are 4 paths I recommend to begin our healing journey:

  1. Therapy Sessions
  2. Spiritual Healing Sessions
  3. Contemplation: Contemplation is a meditation technique that keeps us conscious and grounded on the physical realm, and reveals wisdom and understanding that is aligned with our current state of consciousness by engaging our four bodies (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual) and our physical and spiritual senses. I recommend working with “XIV Temperance” and “XVIII The Moon” cards. Here is a link that explains contemplation in detail: https://goldenlightacademy.com/rosoc/. The are also other cards that we can work with that are aligned with our personal journey, the following link will help identify them: https://goldenlightacademy.com/understanding-our-spiritual-journey/.
  4. Labradorite Crystals: A great way to venture deep into our subconscious and bring to light the darkness that dwells within is to sleep with a Labradorite pendant over our heart chakra and a Labradorite cabochon over our third eye—held in place with a headband.

The following two exercises will also help and support us on our healing journey:

  1. 5-minute guided meditation: Golden Light Visualization.
  2. Grounding Exercise: https://goldenlightacademy.com/grounding/.

Through fear, darkness plants a seed in our collective consciousness so that WE may manifest a future it desires; we must render darkness powerless by overcoming all fears and maintaining a positive outlook on the future, filled with Light & Love.

“A friend of mine referred me to The Golden Light Academy and I’m so glad she did. I was often hesitant when it came to spirituality that didn’t resemble what I was taught in my Christian faith, but I wanted to find a way to better connect with and to be more in tune with my Self. I needed guidance in this world full of noise to help me quiet the mind and meditate – what we know has so many health and wellness benefits, but for a newbie like me, a daunting task. David answered the call. I am so grateful for his calm, reassuring and professional light, guidance and teaching. We had a one-on-one session, I read his book in 2 nights, and followed the first level meditation workshop. In this process, I quickly felt more connected to me and aware than I have ever been. I highly recommend his book and his offerings to anyone who is interested in understanding a higher level of awareness and the practice of meditation, contemplation and breathwork. Thank you, David, for sharing your gift.”

-Stephanie Jama

“Have had really positive experiences during meditation sessions with David. Specifically the breathing techniques and visualization techniques I learned from him have really helped me in fine tuning my meditation practices. I highly recommend his courses and if you want a deeper dive his book is also excellent.”

-Jake Dickson

There is much more to life than we are led to believe, everlasting life; therefore, remain conscious of your divine soul and enjoy this journey—lead a righteous life, seek wisdom and understanding, and strive for enlightenment, but do not stray away from the physical and spiritual experiences required to fulfill your soul’s growth.
