Swami Rama says: So I came to one conclusion, and I want to give you one simple thing. When you start meditating, don’t try to see the light. You see easily the light; what type of meditation it is that you are in search of what light? So don’t have that, “I want to see light; I want to see blue light, purple light, white light, gold light.” Don’t! These lights will come and disappear according to the predominance of tattvas. One day you’ll see golden light; one day you’ll see one yellow light; another day you’ll see red light. That’s not called progress. Those lights you see, you have glimpse, because of the tattvas. You have five tattvas, elements: fire... When earth is active, you’ll see a yellow light. Many times a meditator feels fragrance, and that’s not untrue. Because during that time, he’s one with the prithvi tattva. So fragrance is a quality of prithvi tattva. Many times a student sees himself floating in the water. Many times he will feel burning sensation. These are the symptoms of the tattvas—the predominance of tattvas. One of the tattvas remains predominant. You can easily see. Have a mirror and do (audibly blows breath). You’ll find that mirror is creating many forms. Because at different times, after ten minutes, twenty minutes, half an hour, again do it—that picture which is made by the vapor, changes. Predominance of tattvas. Therefore, my suggestion, and what we are taught, and the way we are trained, I tell you not to hanker, not to worry about seeing lights. Suppose you see the light. What will happen to you? You have seen lights. What has happened? These lights have made you crazy—that will make you more! That is not right teaching. So the teachers of meditation say, “Learn to make your abode in complete darkness.” How do you observe that this is darkness and this is light? Because during that time your light within becomes very observant and alert. You experience darkness. It is very easy to imagine light, but it is very difficult to observe darkness, and maintain that darkness for some time. I tell you that! A student is asked to observe darkness— complete darkness. Why? So that he can see real light, far and far away. Where? Within himself. So teacher gives him initiation on the ajna chakra bhedana—meditating on the ajna chakra. And it says, “In the ajna chakra, completely dark—ovals, stripes—this figure, you meditate (draws a shivlinga in the ajna chakra). Don’t go towards the words and aksharas, otherwise, you’ll be lost, and you’ll be saying “Aa, ee, oo,” whole day. What will you find? You will find a light coming through. That is the process— not meditating. When you are asked to gaze on light, it is a trataka—training the eyes. It is not meditation. But it is done after you have done your puja here. Panchocharapuja sodasocharapuja.

They say it has to do with the "Archons". There was a thread made here a few months ago about it. According to the story, the light is some technology they use to harvest our soul's for reincarnation, or something like that.
Here it is.
