Leo 2012 Global
Souledout.org's Meditation Focus theme for 2012 continues for this Leo full moon cycle. On our annual journey, we are exploring
Cosmic Communion ~ Consummation of Life Everlasting
During this year's spring festival cycle, we attuned to the inflow of energies in and through the spiritual realm, and aligned with this focus. During Cancer, this inpouring was further assmilated. Now as we continue through the Leo cycle, we are endeavoring to work with these new impressions as we integrate them into our service in the world.
In present time, we consciously aspire to evolve and raise our vibration each and every day. One way to participate in group alignment is to join us in the daily spiritual focus presented in our

2012 Leo Meditation Theme
the Electric Fire of Life We Ignite
For the 2012 Sirius~Leo Cosmic Festival, we continue with this invocation. The Leo lunar cycle offers an opportunity for spiritual approach that is of great importance and significance. Throughout the month, may we prepare for and serve through this dynamic event, as it demonstrates on the planet.
At this full moon festival, in our attunement to the Light of Leo ~ the Light of the Soul ~ we unite in group formation to invoke the Avatar of Synthesis and the reappearance of the Christ, who are to respond to the united appeal of Humanity and the Hierarchy.
As aspirants and disciples, in present time we consciously realign with the Divine Plan ~ the unfolding Purpose of the One Life. Through our alignment with the Principle of Decision, we then become steadier in our service expression.
Electric fire relates to the Will aspect of deity and manifests as Unity of Spirit. As Watchers of the Dawn we are called to Wield this force by aligning with and directing the incoming flow of energies to reveal the Synthesis of Life Itself. All are valuable in this endeavor.
Calling upon the available Will during the Leo cycle, there is opportunity for Clarity leading to Freedom as we determine to overcome all that dilutes the Life and our shared experiences.

Working toward the establishment of a world religion, it is advised in the works of Alice A. Bailey, that we attune to the energies of Sirius as they become available at the Leo Full Moon. In our endeavor to make contact with Sirian force, we are cooperating in the development of a major spiritual festival at the time of this full moon, that one day will be celebrated by all of humanity. (3)
For this alignment, we now consecrate ourselves to the most high aspect within the Self. We seek and find the light of Leo ~ the Light of the Soul ~ and doing so, we assist in preparing Humanity to become one with this light. This is our present Path ~ identified as the Light, we become the Way.
At the recent Gemini Festival of the Christ, we accessed heightened opportunity to align with the Enlightened Ones ~ the Spiritual Hierarchy who guide our planet, help us evolve, and embody and express the Love~Wisdom aspect of Divine Purpose.
In that we, as the worldwide group, have envisioned a grid of light over all the Earth that connects the light of every Lightworker and each sacred energy vortex, together we form this Chalice ~ the Holy Grail prepared to assist in the grounding of spiritual energies on behalf of the One Life.
Each year during July and August, as the Sun traverses the area of the zodiac held by the constellations Cancer and Leo, Earth's closest and overall brightest star Sirius rises with the Sun in the east and is hidden from view by the Sun's daytime light. In this, the energies from the Sun and of Sirius, eight light years beyond it, are blended as their light reaches Earth during this phase of the annual cycle.
For further contemplation ... we are told that the Path to Sirius relates Sirius and Leo in a cosmic relationship. The majority of humanity will eventually follow this Fourth Cosmic Path (as pertains to a Master of the Wisdom taking the sixth initiation, that of Decision), one of seven potential pathways of higher evolution. (4)
As for the stream of energy between Sirius and Leo and our solar system, its attributes are said to be "cosmic rapture and rhythmic bliss." This energy reaches us from Sirius by way of the Sun, ruling planet of Leo. The method whereby one fits themself to pass upon this path is termed "duplex rotary motion and 'rhythmic dancing upon the square'."(5)

Full Moon in Leo ~ Aquarius
We take the needed time to create a sacred space and spiritually align our energies. When this is achieved, as part of the united group channel through which the spiritual forces can become available, we mentally link up with people of Goodwill everywhere. We affirm this channel, "We stand poised, united as one soul with our Spiritual Hierarchy," and hold the focus.
This alignment we make with the Spiritual Hierarchy creates a unity between humans in physical form and the Great Ones in Spirit. The Light of the Soul is sensed and embodied.
Sirian energy is with us, night and day.
As we emerge from meditation, with focused mind, heart and will, we dynamically intone The Great Invocation, and together we say ...
The Great Invocation
the point of light within the Mind of God
the point of love within the Heart of God
the center where the Will of God is known
the center which we call Humanity
- adapted version (6)
We now continue to hold the high space throughout this most auspicious phase of the full moon, an important time to still the mind and maintain inner peace, always a time of spiritual retreat and contact.

Leo ~ The Light of the Soul
At the new moon prior to the full moon in Leo~Aquarius, we begin aligning in preparation for the Sirius~Leo Cosmic Festival two weeks later. In generating the required alignment, we invite you to consider the information synthesis offered here as meditation seeds for a month-long period. To aid in this alignment we advocate use of The Great Invocation throughout the cycle.
Sirius Revealed Sirius, associated with freedom and liberation, is the brightest star in the night sky and at 8.6 light years away from Earth, the closest major star to our own solar system. Sirius is closely associated with Leo and at the potent full moon during this cycle, the Sirius energies are of significant influence.
Avatars ~ Divine Embodiments This type of greater Avatar expresses the impulse behind Divine Purpose.
Principle of Decision In approach of the spiritual Hierarchy, we may join them in application of this divine truth based on the 3 P's ~ Perception of the Plan, Participation in the Purpose, and Prevention of Evil.
Cosmic Identification Based on a Divine Truth of Deity, this realm of identification affirms the interrelation between the starry heavens, the solar system, and the planetary spheres as real and effectual. (8)
Yoga of Synthesis As we identify with the Oneness of All, we are able to express the self in light of this larger perspective and thereby assist in serving as co-creators of the Divine Plan and Purpose.
Night Sky ~ 2012 "Re-Membering ~ As Above, So Below" shares an overview of concepts implicit in the significance of the 2012 December solstice, and how this relates to the spiritual light in the head.
New Group of World Servers Members of this group desire to uplift, teach and help others. They are identified by the selflessness of their service to the world and lack of personal ambition, coupled with a willingness to work behind the scenes without recognition.
The Lighted Way The entire zodiac can be approached and understood from the angle of light ~ the inner light, soul light ~ and its unfolding, increasing radiance is the manifestation of our divine nature. (9) Study of the 12 different lights for each of the constellations of the zodiac reveals the symbolic story of the growth of the light body within the Soul of Humanity (the Macrocosm) and within each of us (the Microcosm), and will finally make clear the very purpose of God.
Sirius and Initiation As we journey through space, together with the Milky Way galaxy, we travel also along with the Sirian system. The significant connection between our relatively unimportant little planet and that vast expression of Divinity ~ the Life manifesting through Sirius ~ is an organized and vital expression beyond anything humanity can vision, and is free to a completely unlimited extent, again beyond any power we can comprehend.
Freedom and the Initiations In our evolution humanity embraces ever more fully the concept and the quality of freedom, as we become soul-infused and eventually liberated from the restrictions of physical plane existence.
Night Sky ~ Moon Dances During each lunar cycle the Moon, waxing and waning, journeys through the zodiac. It partners with and enlivens the sparkling stars and glowing planets along the way. As the Moon grows in the light provided by our Sun, we too grow in the light of our Soul.
Lunar Theme: Portals of Unique Opportunity Unique opportunities may arise within this lunar cycle but they require moment-by-moment attentiveness and response to the unique and out of the ordinary events and people appearing in our everyday lives, lest what are magical doorways briefly appearing may be lost. Nick Fiorenza gives insights to this lunar cycle, which begins July 18, 9:24pm PDT and ends August 20, 8:54am PDT.

Preparation for Participation in This Meditation Focus
If at all possible, we suggest being in meditation at the exact time of the full moon. If you are unable to do this, choose a time within 12 hours before or after to align with these energies and be part of this global meditation.
For this meditation joining the world group at the time of the full moon, it is suggested to begin meditating earlier so as to be in deep meditation at the exact time, and then continue for as long as you feel compelled.
Prior to your meditation take the needed time to create a sacred space and spiritually align your energies.
Consider what is the appropriate way to join in this meditation ... you may wish to participate in group formation on the physical plane as well as on the inner planes. Whether or not you choose to be "alone" on the physical plane, know you are uniting with many others who also are attuning to the energies available at this Global Festival, and that this group focus creates a powerful channel for the meditation to be potent and effective.
The Full Moon Festivals Culminate over a Five-Day Period ...
Our meditation focus beginning at the new moon leads into the two "days of preparation" immediately preceding the full moon. These are to be dedicated to spiritual reflection and detachment from everyday concerns, as each prepares to become a vessel for the energies of light and love they will receive and channel. At this time we hold the attitude of dedication and service, and seek to assume that attitude of receptivity to that which our soul will impart which will make us of spiritual use.
The day of the full moon itself is the "day of safeguarding," one of inner peace and silence during which we attempt to contact and consciously hold the energies for the rest of humanity. We will not formulate for ourselves what will happen, nor will we look for results or tangible effects. While one may not observe the exact moment when the moon is full, it's important to find some quiet time to reflect alone or use this opportunity to meditate with others of like mind and focus.
The two succeeding days are called the "days of distribution." We now turn the attention outwards, away from ourselves, and our efforts are to pass on the spiritual energies that have been contacted. We assist these spiritual energies, transformed into goodwill, in flowing to where there is greatest need.
We now continue to hold the high space throughout this most auspicious day of the full moon, an important time to still the mind and maintain inner peace, a time of spiritual retreat and contact. If you wish, feel free to continue use of this meditation for the entire month of Leo.
From new moon to new moon, Thursday, July 19 through Friday, August 17, 2012.

Leo Synthesis Additional links for further understanding
Leo Zodiacal Deity The Leo Full Moon occurs during the month of the Dog Star, or of Sirius, and so Sirius into close relationship with Leo. Awareness of the Leo-Sirius connection helps to build a world religion, and this is a great and unique opportunity ~ to be conscious of these cosmic energies and of the possibilities they offer humanity for spiritual evolution.
Leo Labor of Hercules Hercules's great test in Leo was to slay the Nemean Lion. He did so in the cave, where the lion of the developed personality or individuality kept its lair. Before he could control the personality with the higher mind, Hercules had to close one of the cave's two openings, "As above, so below."

Highlights~Sirius Astronomical synthesis about Sirius
The Blue Pearl (a.k.a. Blue Dot, Blue Sphere, Blue Disk, Blue Angel) In his book Does Death Really Exist? Muktananda says, "The blue dot, which we call the Blue Pearl, dwells in the sahasras, the spiritual center in the crown of the head. It is the body of the Self. All consciousness is contained in it. All of the dynamism of the breathing process comes from the Blue Pearl." (10)
The Law of Spiritual Approach This law is the basis for full moon work, which is a spiritual approach and a group endeavor. Through Avatars, God, the Emanator, Originator, Creator ~ whatever term we may choose in order to identify that great Source of all that exists ~ periodically makes such a dramatic Approach to humanity.
Principle of Freedom The Principle of Freedom and the Principle of Liberation are forged on Planet Earth by energies emanating from the great star Sirius. Because of its connection to Freedom and Liberation, Sirius assists us in invoking freedom on our planet, and bringing more of this wonderous star’s quality to life here.
Freedom and the Initiations In our evolution humanity embraces ever more fully the concept and the quality of freedom, as we become soul-infused and eventually liberated from the restrictions of physical plane existence. This goal of freedom is in reality the main incentive to tread the Path of Return, the Path of Liberation.
The Seven Cosmic Paths "This subject is considered ... to be devoid of form and therefore incognisable to the lower concrete mind." (11) Hence it is through the practice of Living the Radiant Life that we may begin to understand the nature of Spirit, for to bring Spirit fully into our daily lives is service to the One.
Fixed Cross Leo is a point on the Cross of the Soul, closely related to the second initiation, Baptism, at which the first contact with Shamballa energy is experienced.
Song of the Seraph This poem, written at the founding of the U.N. in 1945 toward the Healing of the Nations, is all the more relevant in today's world. (Audio version included.)
The Spiritual Kingdom Manifests We approach the Hierarchy and as this occurs, Humanity evolves into the Spiritual Kingdom.
