The Great Invocation
For anyone wanting to join in the full moon meditations of Aries, Taurus and Gemini to assist with bringing Shambhala to Earth the following outlines the history, rituals and invocation. There will also be a group meditation at the Roundhouse in Vancouver BC on the 5th of June from 7-9pm. The following is reposted from www.spiritual.co.nz.
At the full moon time all our lower bodies (physical, emotional and lower mental), which are called ‘lunar bodies’ are removed from the direct impression of the moon. Because of this we have a chance to radiate our inner light through our lower bodies, which are still polluted, to some degree, from the previous influence from the moon. When the lower bodies are more or less without stimulation from the moon, the higher energies release themselves and penetrate abundantly into humanity. Those who do not have enough mental equilibrium show signs of mental imbalance at full moon time, with the overflowing spiritual energies creating excessive tension (hence the term lunatic!)
In the coming ‘Golden Age’, when the new world religion of unity is formulated under the influence of incoming energies and deeper human understanding, there will be a festival for each full moon. During the year there are three ‘major’ full moons, these being when the sun is in the zodiacal signs of Aries, Taurus and Gemini. At these times, humanity will try to establish three divine aspects by invoking Light, Love and Power and in the remaining 9 or 10 full moons, humanity will try to build these divine attributes into its consciousness.
THE GREAT INVOCATION
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into human minds.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into human hearts.
May the Coming One* return to Earth.
From the center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide all little human wills
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the center which we call the human race
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
At the time of the full moon the chalice of our hearts must open in the spirit of invocation so that the incoming energies pour into our being with their transmuting, transforming and transfiguring effect.
In esoteric literature, it is advised that we have at least twenty minutes of meditation at the EXACT full moon time each month. Each full moon period is divided into seven days: three days prior to the full moon, the actual day of the full moon, and three days after the full moon.
The first three days together are called the days of preparation. The first day of preparation is called the day of confidence. The second day is the day of spiritual aspiration and the third day is the day of dedication and decision. These days must be observed in the spirit of renunciation and detachment. These attitudes are a means to save and accumulate energy, clear our vision, correct our alignment and relationships.
On the first day we must fill our hearts with the confidence that Christ IS, and that in every man there is the spark of life, the ever blooming, ever unfolding reality. All day our thoughts will centre on these ideas, without interfering with our daily duties and labour. Through such endeavour we attune our brain for our future work.
On the second day, which is the day of aspiration, our astral vehicle is lifted to a very high level of sensitivity, beauty, adoration, worship and admiration. This day we lift our hearts to the grandeur of the achieved Sons of God and of the spiritual life leading us toward infinity.
On the third day, which is the day of dedication, the mental body will be charged with will energy and extended toward the transcendental values. A solemn decision must be made that all incoming energies will be used for the fulfilment of the PLAN and for the upliftment of humanity as a whole. This is the day of tension, where we become as an open LOTUS, extended towards the rays of infinity, filling us up with divine energies.
The fourth day, the day of the full moon, is the day of contact. This extends over a period of 6 hours before and 6 hours after the full moon, however the EXACT time is the highest point of contact. The contact is with the highest fire in you, with the fire of the Hierarchy and with the ‘centre where the will of God is known’ (Shamballa/heart).
This is the time when the opportunity is given to disciples to expand their consciousness and enter into a new level of divine awareness. This is the day on which contacts are made with our Solar Angel and with our Master. The full moon day is also called the day of safeguarding. Our chalice is filled with the precious energies of this ‘new Age’, and through them we are in contact with their sources and thus stand in the love, light and power. This is a treasure which must be safe-guarded. Not a single drop of the accumulated energies need be wasted by the negative actions, emotions or thoughts, as negative use of these energies can create harm to our bodies and environment. This is the day of silence and contact, during which we are absorbed into our inner divinity.
The fifth day is the day of registration. The contacted energies slowly descend into our mental equipment, into our personality and are recognized there. It is at this time that new decisions are made and new plans are drawn up to carry on the work for the liberation and freedom of humanity.
The sixth day is called the day of assimilation, when the contacted fiery energies penetrate into our lower vehicles and cause transmutation, transformation and transfiguration.
The seventh day is called the day of radiation. Through all our relationships, the higher energies that we have received are radiated towards our environment, toward our nation and toward humanity as a whole. These last three days are collectively called the days of distribution and sharing. Through all of our talents and expressions we will share the love, light and power to make this world a better place in which to live, to serve and to unfold ourselves toward infinity.
During each of these seven days our mediation must be appropriated to the key note of the full moon day and a proper seed thought and invocation* must be chosen for each day. *THE GREAT INVOCATION is best.
The group must assemble as close to the actual full moon time as possible. After a group meditation it is advised to disperse without interchange of ideas or discussion if possible. This helps retain the received energies and impressions.
NOTE: The Great Invocation can be said at any time and this is advised. At least if you say it every morning, this is very powerful. You do not need to say it out loud, just ‘see’ the words in your mind. To visualise a positive scene or light or whatever is very powerful as you say it! It is often used in the full moon meditations because of its power.
