The Pentecost celebration is traditionally begun at 9 am on Sunday in your time zone. Any variation of 9, such as 6 or 3 is by resonance also suitable. So we can work at 3 AM or 6 AM or 9 AM (and/or in the PM) remembering to tune into the 'living reality of Pentecost' during these times throughout the hours of the day, evening and night. The energies will only increase in their beauty and strength. The angelic/devic life is magnetically attracted to participate and even more so if they are invited and invoked.
"Properly prepared we must always BE". Individually and as a group, our spiritual practices and service these past days have been properly preparing us through a unified spiritual approach of ritual observances and spiritual practices. Together we oriented in one direction, we engaged in spiritual study, meditation, visualization, contemplation and deep listening. We aligned and attuned with the Soul Star Group and the "Great Potency of the Inner Groups", and we sounded the Great Invocation — the "world prayer" given by the Lord of the World and the Christ for uplifting Humanity and manifesting a new world.

Holy Communion is a meeting place in the 'holy chamber of the Lord'. Today it is the great Field of the Christ. No words are spoken because no words are needed in the communion of the One Heart where Loving Understanding and Divine Comprehension replace the spoken word.
Long ago in an upper chamber, men and women gathered in holy communion in the spirit of the Christ. As they met in "group Communion", they gathered their spiritual powers with one accord. In unified invocation, their hearts and minds lifted unto the Most High God and a great rush of wind entered the room. The Holy Spirit descended upon them as "tongues of living fire" shining above their holy heads.
“The fact of the resurrection will be demonstrated during the next few centuries, and the Living Christ will walk among men and lead them onward towards the Mount of Ascension. The Pentecost will become truth. All men will come under the tide of inspiration from on high, and though they may speak with many tongues, they will all understand each other.” (EOH, 470)
"God, in the person of Christ and His Hierarchy would draw nearer to His people; God, through the instrumentality of the Buddha, would reveal His eternal light and evoke our intelligent cooperation; God, through the spiritual Hierarchy and through that centre where the will of God is known, would bring humanity to the point of resurrection and to a spiritual awareness which would bring about goodwill towards men and peace on earth. The will of God transcendent would be carried out through the medium of God immanent in man; it would be expressed in love in response to the work of Christ; it would be intelligently presented on earth because the minds of men would have been illumined as the result of their united invocation, the unity of their effort and the oneness of their understanding.
It is for this that humanity waits; it is for this that the churches must work; it is these qualities and characteristics which will condition the New World Religion." (Problems of Humanity)
We now prepare to make deeper inner contact for the invocation, evocation, reception, and manifestation of the Holy Spirit, offering ourselves individually and as a group to be conduits and channels of reception for the blessing of humanity and the world.
ENTERING THE INNER TEMPLE
♫ Invocative *Music. Click here, or select your own.
When thought is sanctified, when the forces of the inner man are gathered in the upper chamber of the altar of the most high God (the innermost Center of the Crown), spiritual understanding and unified purpose bring us into the Lighted Way of the Christ and the energy Field of the Lord of the World.
ʘ Sounding a sacred OM, we focus in the heart-mind ... and harmonize with the energy of the "Soul that is the Self" ... absorbing triadal energy ... permeating our field and awareness.
ʘ We recognize a vibration filling our awareness as we are being made ready to enter the “upper chamber” of the Lord, the inner altar of the most high God. We sound a sacred OM.
ʘ In the silent sounding of the sacred OM, a great Heart appears before us. In this Heart we are gathered ... all Participating Souls of the radiant Soul Star Group (with whom we've aligned and meditated daily) ... (You may sound the names of all Easter participants here - if you choose). We see our spheres of radiant light ... merging into one magnanimous sphere of group Light and Love
ʘ Sounding a silent OM, ... another Heart opens revealing countless thousands of participating Souls world-wide, standing in concentric circles of vibratory energy, meeting and blending with living light waves pulsing and weaving lighted love throughout our field.
ʘ Having been made ready to enter the “upper chamber” of the inner altar of the most high God (the Heart in the Head of the group crown center), we sound a silent OM, attuned "as One group Heart" for our invocative "appeal".
ʘ In the center of All stands the Christ, His radiant light and Heart suffusing all Souls with enlivening Joyous energy. ʘ Through the vision of the Heart we see we are gathered in the Great Company and Field of the Heart of the Christ and the Masters of Love-Wisdom, in observance of Pentecost (and again in Gemini for the Festival of the Christ and of Humanity).
ʘ In the silent Power of a planetary OM, we find ourselves moving inside a great 'common union' - a communion Feast of the Lord. Joyous love and expectancy fills the Field ... attuned we are "as One Group Heart" for our invocative "appeal" of the Holy Spirit of God.
ʘ In one great spiritual approach of Invocation to the Holy Spirit, the Way of the Christ making our way straight and clear ... we are lifted up into an "upper chamber" of the Lord, a large temple of refined vibration ... the stars are shining in the domed firmament above, as the walls around us disappear
ʘ Together as One, in one great speech we invoke the Holy Spirit, reverently chanting
Veni Sancte Spiritus - Come Holy Spirit
Veni Sancte Spiritus - Come Holy Spirit
Veni Sancte Spiritus - Come Holy Spirit
Pause in Meditation
Suddenly, a great energy breaks through the temple .... a living fire of life ... an unstoppable river of Life ... like a swift wind pouring down and sweeping through the assembled ...
Fires of life penetrate living substance upon all assembled ...
ʘ We open to receive the gifts of Pentecost ... 'life-sustaining" ... 'life enhancing" ... "life-giving" substance ... the "waters of Life" - the great river of Life, sustaining Love ... washing through the assembled and throughout the world....
This is " ... the universal dissemination of the Christ consciousness throughout all time in the heart of every human being" ...
–In these words and promise we bear witness –
"Lo, I am with you all the days, even until the end of the world"
“This is a feast unlike indeed to those the dreaming of the world has shown. For here, the more that anyone receives, the more is left for all the rest to share. The Guests have brought unlimited supply with Them. And no one is deprived or can deprive. Here is a feast the Father lays before His Son, and shares equally with him. And in Their sharing there can be no gap in which abundance falters and grows thin. Here can the lean years enter not, for time waits not upon this feast, which has no end. For love has set its table in the space ...” ACIM, 598
“Come therefore unto me, and learn of the truth in you. The mind we share is shared by all our brothers, and as we see them truly they will be healed. Let your mind shine with Mine upon their minds, and by our gratitude to them make them aware of the light in them. This light will shine back upon you and on the whole Sonship, because this is your proper gift to God. He will accept it and give it to the Sonship, because it is acceptable to Him and therefore to His Sons. This is true communion with the Holy Spirit, Who sees the altar of God in everyone, and by bringing it to your appreciation, He calls upon you to love God and His creation. You can appreciate the Sonship only as One. This is part of the law of creation, and therefore governs all thought.” ACIM, 123
After the reception of energy subsides, let us CONTEMPLATE these truths in our Being.
Sound a Sacred OM
(Continue with the following meditation or close with the Great Invocation)
A White Magic Meditation / Visualization
Building a Communion of Peace by the Nations of the World
Esoterically, Pentecost is a Coming to Union, a Holy Communion of all Peoples, Nations and Faiths, wherein one common union is known universally through our one human race, that is innately divine. No words need ever be spoken in the communion of the Heart of God that knows all, feels all, sees all, understands all, and unifies all in a synthesis of Holy High Communion.
To distribute the Pentecost energies just received on behalf of the world, we can envision a Culture of Peace for all the Nations of the World. This is a brief but potent creative meditation in line with a White Magic process to build 'a world we want to see and live in - a world in union'.
We can do this meditation now to distribute these energies and/or repeat it as often as we are called to bring it into manifestation. It is especially potent during the new and full moon times. This meditation will be especially auspicious and fruitful if repeated during the Full Moon of Gemini – the Festival of the Christ and of Humanity, and during the Libra full moon whose Keynote is Peace.
ʘ Let us imagine this day, Pentecost, linked to Peace Day in September. The scourge of war has long ago ended. A sacred ritual opening the work of the United Nations is about to begin. All the world leaders, deeply Soul inspired, have ritually gathered around an enormous oval table (seating 192+ Nations). The purpose for gathering the global community is to celebrate the Communion of Brotherhood – the Desire of all Nations for Perpetual World Peace.
In the center of the table is a large crystal chalice, shaped like a bowl, filled with the purest spring water rising from an eternal spring deep within the primal wells of our Earth. It is a world communion chalice signifying the vital waters of life that flow through world Peace.
Hovering over the chalice and into the water is a stream of potent, etheric white light emanating from a golden triangle, around which hover four great Elders of the Human Race: the Spirit of Peace, the Avatar of Synthesis, and the Buddha, each positioned upon a point of the Triangle, with the Christ at its Center.
The energy in the room is filled with Joy, expectancy and magical vitality emanating from the Blessed Ones.
The Presence of the Christ is the spiritual keynote, emanating from each and every heart. The Nation's leaders are committing to the Good of all their people and the peoples of all nations in the unified Heart of Love.
A ritual celebration of unity and brotherhood begins. Good Will and the "Will-to-Good for All" permeate the atmosphere and condition the proceedings, resulting in supreme reverence and respect, true dialogue and deep understanding of the issues each leader faces. As Soul leaders of the respective Nations, they begin by recognizing one another for their nation’s achievements in the past year on behalf of world Good. Pledges of support are offered for each nation’s needs and solutions are brought forward. World problems are surfaced and brought to solution "as if by one mind, one heart and one unified will" flowing through our "One Humanity and One World".
Each world Executive, a Soul-infused leader, drinks a cup of pure water from the central chalice, now magnified by the Christ and the three avatars, instilling in them the Power to "make all things New". The Words now spoken come from one spiritual speech, and the fullness of understanding arises as each sees into the needs of the other through the language of the Heart, knowing only unity, goodwill and a true realized Brotherhood of Light and Love and Holy Will.
"The Day of Pentecost signifies a gathering of spiritual powers for the purpose of harvesting the first fruits of Spirit" and "dedicating these new forces of Spirit to unselfish service in the vineyard of the Lord."
We sound a Sacred OM to seal and make real all the above,
and we intone "Let it Be Done".
In closing the Communion Feast, the Soul Star Group(s) and all the assembled sound the Great Invocation, the World Prayer, led by the Christ and Spiritual Hierarchy:
(The Great Invocation below combines the alternate version [in brackets] for your choice)
THE GREAT INVOCATION
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men [into human minds].
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men [into human hearts].
May Christ [the Coming One] return to Earth.
From the center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men—[guide ‘human will’]
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the center which we call the race of men [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
Sound a sacred Om (embodying the Light of God)
Sound a sacred Om (embodying the Love of God)
Sound a sacred Om (embodying the Life and Will of God)
(And Help Us To Do Our Part)
The Avatar of Synthesis works through the United Nations General Assembly. Let us hold in heart and mind the full Potential of this modern temple and sacred space, its purpose to assemble leaders for the Souls of Nations working on behalf of the One Soul of Humanity for world Good and the Earth we love. We see here an Upper Chamber open to the Firmament above for Spirit to descend upon all assembled!
LET US BE VIGILANT
In the days ahead, let us be vigilant and aware of the energies invoked and evoked, circulating and expressing anew.
If we choose, some may want to follow the custom of Pentecost Trinity that observes Sunday, Monday and Tuesday as part of Pentecost. Some may want to repeat the ritual meditation each morning or evening, for three days, to extend it. Or revisit the days of preparation and include them in your meditations. The Angelic workers stand ready and on-call during this period. The energies invoked will be held secure during Pentecost week and some measured portion will flow through the Gemini Solar Full Moon.
Let us Be aware of circulation at the top of the head. Frequently tune into the expanded Soul Star Group. Pentecost is a world wide celebration inclusive of all who are dedicated light-workers on behalf of the Christ.
(In the orthodox tradition, Pentecost begins at Midnight of Saturday night, with an all night vespers into Sunday).
ABOUT THE GREAT INVOCATION: "The great Invocation or Prayer does not belong to any person or group but to all Humanity. The beauty and the strength of this Invocation lies in its simplicity, and in its expression of certain central truths which all men, innately and normally, accept—the truth of the existence of a basic Intelligence to Whom we vaguely give the name of God; the truth that behind all outer seeming, the motivating power of the universe is Love; the truth that a great Individuality came to earth, called by Christians, the Christ, and embodied that love so that we could understand; the truth that both love and intelligence are effects of what is called the Will of God; and finally the self-evident truth that only through humanity itself can the Divine Plan work out." (Problems Of Humanity, 165/6)
