Ethics Q&A

Answers from the Lily Activators Council on Ethics

 

Q1: Do I need to apply for certification in order to facilitate Core Light Healing for others?

 

A1: Core Light Healing is a Native Lily App proprietary to The Lily and Beyond. Please be aware that (a) only a handful have been fully activated to Core Light Healing although they are not certified, (b) the ability of Lilies to do Core Light Healing is limited and uncertified, (c) The Lily and Beyond has never issued certification for Core Light Healing, and is not planning to issue certifications in the future. To practice Core Light Healing without certification and yet be in integrity, we recommend adopting any of the following ethical solutions:
 

  • Use the label "Core Light Healing+" [1] accompanied by this disclaimer: "Created in the spirit of the Lily Mission of PEACEANDONEBROTHERHOODOFMAN, Core Light Healing (CLH) is a native app of The Lily and Beyond, designed to stimulate energetic healing when practiced ethically. Core Light Healing+ [1] are CLH-like apps developed by individual members of the Lily Community independent of The Lily and Beyond." Place this disclaimer in clear view whenever displaying the label "Core Light Healing+" Besides using this disclaimer, we recommend employing Star Ratings and feedback forums or forms to demonstrate your commitment to quality service with integrity.

  • Call your energy healing practice something other than "Core Light Healing." Give yourself another title other than "Core Light Healing Facilitator/Practitioner" to show you are unique, self-titled, self-appointed and independently organized.
     

Q2: Do I need to apply for certification in order to teach Akashic Record Reading classes?
 

A2: Teaching Akashic Record Reading classes requires certification from a duly authorized and trained Akashic Teacher.

Q3: If I wish to teach Native Lily App to others, would I need to apply for certification?

 

A3: Yes, teaching Native Lily Apps requires training and certification. If you wish to be in integrity, you may share (not teach) your understanding of Native Lily Apps with others provided you openly proclaim the following: (1) the knowledge you share applies to you only and may be harmful if adopted by others without discernment, (2) you are not qualified, trained nor accredited by The Lily & Beyond to teach. If you wish to present yourself as a teacher, facilitator or educator of Native Lily Apps, then the ethical thing to do would be to apply for training and certification before you can teach.

Q4: If I wish to lead or facilitate a group Lily Cloud Meditation, would I need to apply for certification?
 

A4: If you wish to facilitate a Lily Cloud Meditation for groups, or teach Lily Cloud Meditation to others, you will now need training and certification. (Note: only a handful of Lilies in USA have been sufficiently trained to facilitate Lily Cloud Meditations). We advise against facilitating or teaching a group Lily Cloud Meditation unless you are trained and certified to do so. This advise is not meant to deter Lilies from practicing Lily Cloud Meditation individually or collectively. This advise is meant to deter self-appointed, unqualified Lilies from acting as, or claiming to be, a group facilitator or teacher of a Lily Cloud Meditation. 

Q5: If I wish to organize a Lily gathering, would I need to apply for certification?

 

A5: You do not need our certification or endorsement to organize or facilitate a Lily gathering, however we advise against calling yourselves a generic name such as, “Lily Gathering.” Use of a generic, non-definitive name like “Lily Gathering” can mislead the public into thinking your group, event or practice has the right by election, recognition, reward or special affiliation, to encompass or represent The Lily and Beyond or the larger Lily Community. To correct that impression and establish obedience to ethics with respect to the will of the larger collective, we advise adopting one of the following ethical solutions:

 

  • Use a symbol like “+” or “*” with the word “Lily”, e.g., "Lily+ Gathering" [1] or “Lily* Gathering" [1] accompanied by this disclaimer, e.g., “Created in the spirit of the Lily Mission of PEACEANDONEBROTHERHOODOFMAN, the Lily+ Gathering is designed to promote... [insert purpose] with obedience to ethics. Lily+ denotes a self-titled event organized at the small group level by individual Lilies independent of The Lily and Beyond."

  • Give yourself another label other than "Lily Gathering" to show you are unique, self-titled and independently organized. “Lily Gathering” is a generic, common noun that does not show distinction, uniqueness or specificity. As any Trademark office will tell you, no one can have exclusive use, right or privilege to a generic name or common noun.

 

Q6: If I wish to organize a one-time event or project open to all Lilies, would I have to apply for certification?
 

A6: The procedure for this would be to request The Lily Activators Council on Ethics for an endorsement letter. Such an endorsement letter may authorize you to attach the word "Lily" (where “Lily” is associated with The Lily and Beyond) to your project or event if your project/event meets our standards of safety, accountability, truthfulness and integrity. If you wish to proceed without our endorsement, then you would ethically attach the word "Unofficial" or “Self-titled” to the name of your project or event (e.g., Unofficial Lily Training Program) or use a footnote disclaimer like, "Self-titled and independently organized, not endorsed by The Lily and Beyond.”

 

Q7: If I mention the words "Core Light Healing", "Lily & Beyond", “Isis +Pi Ray Healing” (also known as Isis Pyramid Healing), "God-consciousness Healing" in my testimonials, FB posts or Lily Network discussion forums, would I have to apply for certification?
 

A7: No. Those are "citations." We do not certify "citations" just as we do not certify greetings and salutations like "Dear Lilies" or "Greetings to Lilies." We only certify practitioners, teachers, facilitators, educators, educational institutions, educational materials and content, events, projects, practices, and the like where there is a need to protect the public from misinformation, abuse, malpractice or misrepresentation.

 

Q8: How do I determine whether or not I need The Lily & Beyond certification or endorsement?
 

A8: The purpose of certification or endorsement is to protect the public from misinformation, misrepresentation, abuse or malpractice. The reason for applying for The Lily & Beyond certification/endorsement is to establish credibility/credentials and accountabilities that protect public safety, especially the safety of Lilies. We offer certification or endorsement as a service to aid the public in discerning what is ethical and what is questionable. If you are unsure whether or not you need certification/endorsement, then please inquire with us. 
 

Reporting Ethical Negligence or Misconduct
 

Q9: How do I report an abuse, or malpractice, or an unauthorized Lily event, or questionable practices by Lilies?
 

A9: If you suspect any misinformation, abuse, misrepresentation and malpractice within the Lily Community that is harming the public or Lilies at large, please bring it to the immediate attention of the Lily Activators Council on Ethics. Their contact information is Ethics.Council@lilyandbeyond.org. Alternatively, you may file an anonymous or pseudonymous (using an alias) report through Ethics Whistle.

 

The Lily Activators Council on Ethics is an advisory body, not a police or law enforcement office. It is concerned with ethical issues within its area of responsibility and prudence that:
 

  • Are statistically significant or potentially viral

  • Violate/disregard ethical boundaries with regards the teachings, services, practices and proprietary applications of The Lily and Beyond

  • Adversely affect the honor and integrity of The Lily and Beyond, its organizational or professional associates, affiliates, officers, staff, vendors, clients, partners or any other 3rd party.
     

For ethical violations outside these concerns, we advise referring the matter to the proper authorities.
 

Q10: What happens when I file a report with Ethics Whistle or Ethics.Council@lilyandbeyond.org?
 

A10: When filing a report, you will be asked to provide the most detailed information possible about the incident. You may choose to remain anonymous when submitting your question or report; however, doing so may limit a full investigation of the matter. We recommend using a pseudonym or alias rather than anonymity. We ask you to follow-up on your inquiry or report with us once a week through Ethics.Council@lilyandbeyond.org in case we need additional information from you. Continued follow-up on a matter is particularly important for anonymous reports, where we have no other means to communicate with a reporter.
 

Q11: What if this is an emergency?
 

A11: Concerns about an immediate threat of physical harm or damage to property should NOT be reported to Ethics Whistle or Ethics.Council@lilyandbeyond.org. If you require emergency assistance, please contact your local emergency services.
 

Q12: Should I report my ethical concern through Ethics Whistle or Ethics.Council@lilyandbeyond.org?
 

A12: Yes. Reporting a concern can minimize the potential negative impact on the Lily Community, our peers and the public. Most importantly, it will help alleviate the difficulty you might be facing. First consider whether you are comfortable raising your concern directly with the people involved. While sometimes challenging, directly addressing issues and or concerns with those involved can be very effective. If you are uncomfortable reporting your concern, if you do not know whom to contact, if you believe your concern has not been satisfactorily addressed, or if you wish to remain anonymous, please proceed with the filing of a report through Ethics Whistle or Ethics.Council@lilyandbeyond.org.
 

If you observe or suspect ethical negligence, as a concerned citizen you have the right and obligation to speak up. Please do not assume that someone else is going to raise the concern. If you do not speak up, your silence protects the perpetrator, not you or the public.
 

Q13: Should I identify myself? 
 

A13: If you choose to identify yourself in reporting your concern, we will make every reasonable effort to hold your name in confidence during the investigation. Many investigations can be more quickly and effectively completed when the reporter is identified because it allows our investigators to follow up directly with the reporter. 

 

Q14: What if I face retaliation?

 

A14: Within our organization, we strictly prohibit any retaliation against any person who reports a concern. Complaints made in good faith will not expose you to any adverse action regardless of whether the concerns you report proves to be valid or results in any corrective action. If you believe you have faced retaliation of any kind, please report it to Ethics Whistle or Ethics.Council@lilyandbeyond.org so that we can investigate.

 

Q15: How can I monitor the status of my report?

 

A15: If your report is within our jurisprudence and merits our attention, then we ask that you check back with us through Ethics.Council@lilyandbeyond.org after a week, especially if you have filed an anonymous report. At that time, you can check the status of your report and learn whether any additional information is needed from you to address your concern.​
