NOTE: Allow yourself the grace of one hour or more to participate in the following Full Moon ritual. Being immersed in the Full Moon energies at the exact time allows for the greatest direct impact. However, if this is not possible, the 12 hours before and after the exact moment carry the fullest measure of direct energy. The Angels tasked with overseeing the full moon periods 'hold the energy field' into which we can enter and resonate at will, with reverence and respect.
a GROUP APPROACH TO DIVINITY IN SERVICE of the plan of god
FULL MOON DAY
"CONTACT, REGISTRATION AND SAFEGUARDING"
(Day Four of the Seven-Day Process)
Solar Full Moon rituals are part of the emerging “New World” Religion. It is a privilege and sacred opportunity to consciously participate with the great Lives of a vast inner world order where the whole is seen as One. Through rhythmic cycles of group approach and invocation and evocation of the high Beings and energies of which we are a part, we are participating in and laying down the framework for the rituals of the new age.
Regardless of what we are ‘doing outwardly' in the world, in the discipline of holding an interior Soul focus during these periods, intent upon making contact with the "living energies and Lives" pouring through the Solar System to the Earth and Her Centers, we are participants of a planned spiritual service and group approach to Divinity.
All who are called to participate have committed to an inner “Soul-imperative” to organize their lives such that they are found participating in the rituals of the greater life of Sanat Kumara – the Lord of the World in Whose Life we live, move, breathe and have our being – and of Whom The Christ is a living Disciple. All who aspire to tread the path of Discipleship and Initiation are drawn and "set apart" for the disciplines that will eventually bring us to the feet of the Master and the higher spheres of Living ~ of "high powered Livingness". In the meantime, we serve with joy in our hearts and light in our minds.
Let us begin by first attuning with the opportunity at hand to be conditioned by ...
Aries as the “Light of Life Itself”
Keynote of the Soul: “I” come forth, and from the Plane of Mind “I” rule.
“ARIES is the constellation through which initiating conditions will stream into our solar system. It embodies the will-to-create that which will express the will-to-good.”
Aries is the "birthplace of divine Ideas," whether these ideas are souls brought into incarnation … or whether they are the birth of the ideas of God in the form of the hierarchical plans to which the initiate becomes sensitive. (EA, 102)
“Aries is the sign of beginnings—the beginning of the creative process, the first step of the soul (the microcosm of the already initiated Macrocosm) towards incarnation, the beginning of recurring and constant cycles of experience [reincarnation], the beginning of the period wherein the soul changes its direction, its purpose and its method, and finally enters upon that definitely defined process which we call spiritual regeneration and initiation. (EA, 106)
“The secret of the will lies in the recognition of the divine nature of man. Only this can evoke the true expression of the will. It has in fact to be evoked by the soul, as it dominates the human mind and controls the personality. This is not determination; it is not whipping up and stimulating desire so that it can be transmuted into will; it is not an implacable, unshakable, immovable focusing of all energies in the need to triumph…. or an iron fixation to stand steady … The secret of the will is … tied in with the recognition of the unconquerable nature of goodness and the inevitability of the ultimate triumph of good. (EA, 581/2)
I. PREPARATION: ENTERING THE SOUL FIELD
OUR group PRAYER INTENTION
Our group "prayer intention" is for "True Soul" contact and Hierarchical impression and inspiration.
May our unified approach to Divinity reach the Heart of the Great Ones;
May our Group Soul serve as a bridge for pure solar fire pouring forth from the Heart of the Sun to the Kingdoms of Earth;
May the Lighted Way of the Soul lead us to greater measures of Reality, guiding our thoughts, hearts and footsteps every day, in every way;
May we receive spiritual impression true, right and good for the needs of our time and the unfolding Soul of Humanity;
May we learn to Live from the Source and Truth of our Being as has been ordained from the beginning;
And, May the guiding Light and Love of the Coming One "reveal divinity on every hand in every form" leading All to their final victory over death and liberation from the fetters of the lower worlds.
SO BE IT
OPENING INVOCATORY PRAYER
“O Hidden Life vibrant in every atom,
O Hidden Light shining in every creature,
O Hidden Love embracing all in Oneness,
Let each who feels One with Thee,
Know He is One with Every Other."
II. INNER ALIGNMENT AND GROUP APPROACH TO DIVINITY WITH THE SOUL STAR GROUP
◊ We center our consciousness first in the heart, then in the head. With a conscious "Breath of Life pouring through all the Centers," sound the Sacred Word, OM coming into the Peaceful Presence of the Soul. Continue for a few moments more with a rhythmic "Breath of Life", deepening inner Soul contact.
◊ With intense spiritual aspiration, we raise our awareness to the higher Heart Center above the Head, breathing the “Breath of Life” ... drawing in atoms of higher vibration … On an out breath, we silently sound forth the sacred WORD, OM, feeling new Life pouring through all the Centers.
Properly prepared, we vibrationally step into the wider Solar Angelic Soul Field.
◊ Visualize standing in the Presence of the Solar Angel ... making contact and stimulating new Life energy flowing through all the Centers ...
In gratitude and confirmation, we sound the sacred Word
THE SOUL IS GROUP CONSCIOUS
◊ Holding the Mind steady in the Light, with an act of Will, we vibrationally step into the presence of the larger Soul field of the Group Soul.
In the golden white light of the Group Soul, Participating Souls are gathered and gathering in the love, beauty, harmony and protective potency of The Soul Star Group.
We see all Souls herein gathered as radiant, luminous spheres of living Love and Light, connected Soul to Soul, in a greater, wider Love and higher Will, present.
We sound a Silent, OM, strengthening our unified group vibration in the one beating Heart of the Group Soul. We pause to register this Reality on the inner planes.
◊ With the next conscious "Breath of Life" from on High, we breathe with the Breath of Life pouring through the Solar System from the Sign Aries ... through “the Heart of the Sun — the SON of Divine Love" ... into the Solar System in which we live.
… the energy continues flowing through Shambhala where the will of God is known ..., on through the Kingdom of God (the Spiritual Hierarchy, 5th Kingdom) where the Love of God is Known ... on through Humanity (4th Kingdom bridging high with low) ... and to All serving groups inwardly gathered in sacred ritual ceremony.
Together and As One, we Sound the Sacred Word, OM, confirming this greater union.
In the moments that follow, let us Be together as one Breath, one Life, in deeper and truer union with Reality ... as all Souls and Soul Groups consciously assembled during this Holy Day of group approach to Divinity.
We sound the Sacred Word, OM (silently or aloud), sealing in this new vibration.
(In this lifted vibration, "Veil the First" can now be sensed parting (felt or imagined) betwixt the lower worlds of form and the higher worlds of the Soul)
III. INVOCATION OF THE ANGELS
Focusing our awareness now on the great presiding Angels gathered and gathering to attend the Full Moon proceedings. From our heart to Theirs, we bid Them greetings and welcome extending a ray of Lighted Love ... inwardly invoking and bidding Them welcome:
◊ Angel(s) of Aries, Governors of the 1st petal of Life, Great Cosmic Angels of the Solar Lord from the Heart of the Sun — "The Son of Divine Love" ... We bid Thee welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
◊ Solar Angelic lives — great Hearts of Fiery Love from the Heart of the Sun ... We bid Thee welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
◊ Angels of the Transmitting Planetary Spheres presencing Their gifts in monthly waves ... We bid Thee welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
◊ Mighty Angels of Shambhala, servants of old of the Ancient of Days and Youth of Endless Summers — Sanat Kumara and Lord of the World Whose Holy Will we aspire to Know — in Thy solemn Presence ... We bid Thee welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
◊ Mighty Angels of the Lord of Love, pure Sapphire Blue, White and Gold, radiantly standing round the Christ and Spiritual Hierarchy, servants true of the Lord of Love — Teacher alike of Angels and Human ... We bid Thee All welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
◊ Legions of Angels, great Ones and small, builders of the new Earth and the Coming Age ... We bid thee All welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
~ We pause to ‘Be with Them’ and 'They with Us' ~ bidding them All welcome with attitudes of love and cooperation as we stand in Their joyous, solemn Presences ... and they in ours, in holy Communion.
In Cooperation deep, we find ourselves standing within a magical field ... as joyous streams of Light and Love and strengthening purposed Power have set a field for new life to pour through God's creations (having begun with our minds, and hearts and forms).
("Veil the Second" can now be sensed parting betwixt the planes of lower and higher Light)
IV. PREPARATION for the INVOCATION of the CHRIST and MASTERS OF LOVE-WISDOM; LIFTING and PARTING of the VEILS the THIRD
(DNA-II, 426) The objective of the planned precipitation of the “light supernal” is to "bring about illumination and the establishment of order upon the Earth". The giving out of the Great Invocation to humanity was the first step.
"The second step will be the reappearance of the Great Lord, Who will act as the lens through which the light can be focused and adapted to human need.”
"When the Christ, the Avatar of Love, makes His reappearance then will the Sons of men who are now the Sons of God withdraw Their faces from the shining light and radiate that light upon the sons of men who know not yet they are the Sons of God. Then shall the Coming One appear, His footsteps hastened through the valley of the shadow by the One of awful power [THE LORD OF THE WORLD] Who stands upon the mountain top, breathing out love eternal, light supernal and peaceful, silent Will.
Then will the sons of men respond. Then will a newer light shine forth into the dismal, weary vale of earth. Then will new life course through the veins of men, and then will their vision compass all the ways of what may be.
So peace will come again on earth, but a peace unlike aught known before. Then will the will-to-good flower forth as understanding, and understanding blossom as goodwill in men." (ROC, 13)
The work that lies before the Christ, significantly resounds ~ strong and wide
for yet another Age ~ the Age of Aquarius now unfolding.
Cooperation deep is pledged by All
Who deeply Know and Love Him,
Writ in Hearts aflame with Love,
Fueled from on high by the Fire of Will
and Persevering Devotion.
A new WORD can be heard round radiant Spheres
long held secret in Our waiting ~
Spiritual Livingness ~ for One In All and All In One,
... strengthening with every passing Decade.
V. INVOCATION OF THE CHRIST and the MASTERS OF LOVE-WISDOM
We enjoin all to come into vibrational resonance with the Ashram of the Christ and the Masters of Love-Wisdom.
With pure hearts intent, Participating Souls TOGETHER AND AS ONE IN simultaneous vibration, WE call to the Great Ones —
The SPIRITUAL HIERARCHY ... in Whose Center stands THE LORD OF LOVE — the CHRIST,
And deeper still the LORD OF WILL and LIFE.
INVOCATION: Let us read the following Invocation softly aloud, slowly invoking with our purest thought, aspiration and devotional energy ... expecting heightened sensitivity, solemnity and quietening power of the greater Group Soul to wash over and through us:
ROUND THE CIRCLE OF A SQUARE UNSEEN,
STAND FOUR AND TWO OF COSMIC PROPORTION.
~ MIGHTY COSMIC SENTINELS,
NORTH AND SOUTH,
EAST AND WEST,
STREAMING COSMIC WAVES OF LIGHT AND LOVE,
ROUND, UPON AND THROUGH THE EARTH —
"WITH SENSES KEEN,
A UNIVERSAL OM IS HEARD LOW, SOUNDING.
ECHOING, REVERBERATING, RESOUNDING,

REVEALING TO HEARTS WIDE OPEN
A SIGHT of PURE PERCEPTION.
A "STAR" FIVE POINTED ~

STANDS THE GREAT ASSEMBLY.
MASTERS OF LOVE, OF WISDOM AND POWER,
POTENT LEADERS OF ASHRAMIC LIFE,
CIRCLED ROUND THE CHRIST

RADIATING "WILL TO LIFE" EMANATIONS.
RADIANTLY PURE, THEIR COUNTENANCES ARE,

FLAMING IN THE NIGHT.
IN THE LIVING PRESENCE OF THE LORD OF LOVE,
IN THE COMPANY OF THE GREAT ONES,

WE OFFER NOW
OUR RADIANT HEARTS
AND THE FULLNESS OF OUR LIFE INTENTION.
silently OM ◊ OM ◊ OM
(We pause to register that which was invoked. In this lifted vibration, "Veil the Third" can be now sensed parting (felt or imagined) betwixt the world where the Great Ones walk and those who know Them not)
VI. THE GREAT CHAIN OF BEING and THE GREAT ASSEMBLY
We read slowly and to what measure we are able energetically invoking, visualizing and sensing "the sensed Reality " of the "ONE Great Being in extension WHO" reaches the planes of Earth through Consciousness.
Imagined or revealed, let us behold the Beauty of our Cosmos and participate in the Glory of It's Presence.
Standing together "AS ONE" unified Assembly, we consciously participate in the great Cosmic descent of energies from on High through the GREAT CHAIN OF BEING:
From the Cosmic Center, the Pleiades—Hub of the great Wheel and the Sisters Seven …
Through the Great Bear (of Cosmic Will) transmitting the Seven Rays … through the pure star Sirius (of Cosmic Love) — Star of Initiation and Sensitivity ...
ALL pouring THEIR Life energies through the Signs Pisces and Aries ... on through the Heart of the Sun — the "Son of Divine Love" and Mother of the Higher Worlds of our Solar System ...
Through the planetary transmitting agencies of Aries passing Their energy to our Earth …
On "to and through" the Lord of the World and the great Council Chamber of Shambhala — where the Peaceful, Silent Will of God is Known ...
On "to and through" the Mother of the World Whose streaming Love and Compassionate essence nurtures every atom in the substance of Creation ...
On to and through the Kingdom of Souls — the Spiritual Hierarchy, the Wholearchy of Love where the Love of God is Known ... "to and through" the Lord of Love Himself, the Christ — Leader of the 49 Ashrams under His supervision and Jurisdiction, “Master of All Masters and Teacher alike of Angels and of Men” — World Teacher of Humanity known by many names (of the varying world religions as Lord Maitreya Buddha, the Imam Mahdi, Messiah, ...).
Flowing onward "to and through" Humanity and to us as sparks of fiery Essence – to all consciously participating Souls – Initiates, Disciples and Aspirants in the world of Ascent and Descent bridging "as above, so below" ... flowing on "to and through" the people of Good Will who stand upon "the ground of daily living" ... to and through the three Kingdoms of Nature ... completing the great COSMIC DESCENT for our Solar System in the Great Chain of BEING.
GREAT IS THE SONG OF LIFE,
GREAT IS THE ONE LIFE ~
O MAGNUM MYSTERIUM
(Feel the Great Blessing to KNOW the Great Blessing)
VII. THE FULL MOON MOMENT OF TRANSMISSION AND RECEPTION
In the period of time remaining leading up to the Full Moon moment, let us move deeper in readiness to meet and stand with the Solar Fire energies of ARIES.
CONTEMPLATING DEEPLY IN THE FULL MOON ENERGIES OF ARIES, our minds and hearts are poised in readiness to meet and receive the energies flowing through the Universe.
WE CONTEMPLATE THE FOLLOWING:
Into the Light of Life we are drawn
Within this Light we stand
In the River of Life and Love, we forward move.
“The secret of the will lies in the recognition of the divine nature of man. Only this can evoke the true expression of the will".
"The secret of the will is … tied in with the recognition of the unconquerable nature of goodness and the inevitability of the ultimate triumph of good".
The unconquerable nature of Goodness,
The inevitable, ultimate triumph of Good.
In the recognition of the Divine Nature of Man,
We have come to serve:
"WE COME FORTH
AND FROM THE PLANE OF MIND,
THE WILL OF GOD ANCHORED IN THE MATRIX OF LOVE
ARIES IS THE LIGHT OF LIFE ITSELF ~
THE SEARCHLIGHT OF THE LOGOS SEEKING
THAT WHICH CAN BE USED FOR DIVINE EXPRESSION.
WE REMEMBER WHAT AND WHO WE TRULY ARE ~
"DIVINE LIVES, LORDS OF WILL AND SACRIFICE,
QUALIFIED BY KNOWLEDGE, LOVE AND WILL,
ANIMATED BY CEASELESS, PERSEVERING DEVOTION".
THE DIVINE NATURE OF MAN IS THE SECRET OF THE WILL.
LET US REMEMBER OUR DIVINE ORIGINS IN THE WORLD OF DAILY LIVING.
◊ PAUSE … immersed in the spiritual power of this Wisdom.
In the period Leading up to the Full Moon moment, let us move deeper in readiness to meet and absorb the Solar Fire energies of ARIES ... pouring through the planetary transmitters of Uranus (Hierarchical), Mercury (Esoteric) and Mars (Exoteric) ... to the Earth and Her Centers.
◊ Be now a recipient channel for the anchoring and expression of the energies of Aries ... flowing through the Universe - THE WILL OF GOD IN THE MATRIX OF LOVE. To be "fulfilled" is to Be "filled full" with the Love of the Logos (the Love of God).
SOUNDING THE GREAT INVOCATION
(Click Here for the words of the Great Invocation, or listen below)
CONTINUING IN THE SOLEMN SILENCE THAT FOLLOWS
LET US BE IMMERSED IN THE RARIFIED SOLAR FIRE ENERGIES OF ARIES.
LET US remain open to the Life, Will and Love energies of this sign of new beginnings … of initiating conditions embodying the "Will to Create that which expresses the Will to Good" (for all).
Let us be aware of opportunities to exercise THE Will in the "Matrix of Love" in the face of adversity or temporary setbacks so that a Greater Good, a Summum Bonum, can come forth onto the planes of every day living.
Should hesitation, self-doubt or apparent lack of resources arise, call on the Angel of Aries to be re-Minded that when 'We come forth, from the Plane of Mind, We Rule’.
We are called to express the qualities that are good for all, lifting and redeeming all lives, raising them further toward their divine essential nature.
Let us move forward with Joy, solidarity and conviction that a new day – a new world is emerging.
BECAUSE CHRIST ANCHORED THE WILL OF GOD IN THE MATRIX OF LOVE,
WE STAND EVER IN THIS MATRIX WITH THE POWER OF HIS WILL TO GOOD,
AND FROM THE PLANE OF MIND WE RULE
"THE WILL OF GOD is MOVing THE WORLD."
Safeguard this day of Contact. Preserving the inner silence … listening to ‘impressions’ today and in the "distribution" days that follow as new energy, intuitions and awareness 'fall into' the mind and heart and etheric system of us as Souls - as the Monad-In-Extension to the person on the ground of daily living.
In the 12 hour period before and following the Full Moon, we remain subjectively in the "Silence of the Soul" regardless of outer activity. Today, we safeguard the energies received through Contact for fuller Registration.
