lighting effect have particles control ("control geometries" group in outliner, under "lightingCurve" here "lightingCirveParticles"). Particles position control by expression. try to modify it.

good luck.

p.s.: you need to make hard changes, because the position of the particles is determined by "sphrand" (if i right understand it)
