Can lighting be installed in tall ceilings w/o go thru attic?

My ceilings in living room, master suite, & family rooms are very high; rooms are dark, I need lighting in ceilings. Do I have to go thru the attic, or do they have lighting options that don't require an electrician going up into the attic to install them? I'm trying to remodel entire home via DIY but I am a lady that doesn't know how to install ceiling lights. What are lighting options? I thought I saw an HGTV show once that installed lights from the inside of the house; drilled hole, installed lighting, much like offices have today in ceilings. Thank you in advance for your assistance!
