Sagittarius Festival Global Meditation ~ Audio
Suggested Spiritual Focus for November 30 - December 29

 

Meditation Focus ~ Overview

SouledOut.org's Meditation Focus for 2016 supports our ever greater awareness of the zodiacal energies of the Lighted Way as we continue to explore the theme, Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation.

During the 2016 spring festival cycle, we attuned to the inflow of energies through the Spiritual Kingdom and aligned with this focus. Now, as the sun continues through the opposite region of the zodiac, we are endeavoring to assimilate the new energies and to integrate these into our service in the world.

Throughout the current lunar cycle surrounding the full moon during Sagittarius, we ask all in our subjective group, according to your inspiration, to utilize the materials presented here as seeds for the daily meditation ritual.

With the cycle's new moon, we begin to share on WeCycle Wisdom our suggested Sagittarius focus for contemplation over the month ahead.

2016 Sagittarius Meditation Theme

 

Cosmically Aligned, We Embrace
The Eternal Rhythm of the Ages,
The Rhythm of the Sages

 

Our meditation alignment for the cycle explores Freedom and Liberation, as pertains to Sagittarius and its one-pointed direction towards Spirit.

This month surrounding the full moon in Sagittarius follows the burning ground of Scorpio. Having dispelled illusions, we're now poised to pursue Divine direction. The Light of Sagittarius illumines our path as we prepare to climb the mountaintop in Capricorn.

In our group endeavor, we align our collective Will in support of the Principle of Directed Purpose ~ which, we're told, increases in influence as the Head center is utilized in meditation. (1)

As aspirants and disciples, in present time we consciously realign with the Divine Plan ~ the unfolding Purpose of the One Life. In the spirit of sacrifice, we offer our very highest self to our service in the world. Through our alignment with the Principle of Decision, we now become ever 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.

... the development of the human being is but the passing from one state of consciousness to another. It is a succession of expansions, a growth of that faculty of awareness that constitutes the predominant characteristic of the indwelling Thinker. It is the progressing from consciousness polarized in the personality, lower self, or body, to that polarized in the higher self, ego, or soul, thence to a polarization in the Monad, or Spirit, till the consciousness eventually is Divine. As the human being develops, the faculty of awareness extends first of all beyond the circumscribing walls that confine it within the lower kingdoms of nature (the mineral, vegetable and animal) to the three worlds of the evolving personality, to the planet whereon he plays his part, to the system wherein that planet revolves, until it finally escapes from the solar system itself and becomes universal. (2)

This cycle's full moon in Sagittarius lunar cycle includes November 26, Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. May this alignment flavor the month with great gifts of gratitude.

Annually, we prepare to align with the cycle's planetary hierarchical meditation beginning each year at the December Solstice, in preparation for the outpouring of spiritual energies at the upcoming Wesak event.

 

It's a Heavenly Christmas and Everyone's Invited!
May we honor the 2016 Winter Festival Season

2016 Meditation Theme ~ Annual Cycle

The March equinox initiated our journey for the spiritual year, as we share now in yet a higher alignment to Purpose for our service for the annual cycle.

As each individual unit takes responsibility for applying their highest dedication to Purpose, one's life becomes the Path, itself. We may look to the Cosmic Path of Higher Evolution to further understand our connection to the Life More Abundant.

The Cosmic Path we may consider in relation to Sagittarius is Path III, the Path of Training for Planetary Logoi.

The Masters taking this training are not occupied with individual states of consciousness within any group. It is the consciousness of the whole, and its responsiveness to cosmic impacts, that engages Their attention. They are not ... interested in any individual unit of any kind or in its individual reactions, responsiveness or susceptibility to impression. They are only concerned with those higher processes of identification which indicate an advanced state of evolutionary development. Their work is to further progressive development of identification. They begin with the identification of the Monad within our planetary sphere with the Purpose and the Will of the Lord of the World, and proceed ~ as Their training produces the desired capabilities ~ with greater identifications within the solar system. (3)

The revealed quality of Synthesis relates largely to the Life aspect, that which enlivens all forms. Synthesis is. (4) This is so, according to the Essential Divinity of all life. Recognizing this truth, we are called to surrender ~ to be the Divine Path through the sacrifice of all that is extraneous.

Becoming the Path itself refers to our construction of the connecting channel between the outer, concrete world and the inner planes of the abstract ideal (5), linking us to the larger, cosmic perspective. This is an outgrowth of the ongoing sacrifice we make in service to the One.

The concept of Being the Path is similarly expressed in the words of the Esoteric Catechism pledge of the disciple, affirming the sacrifice made by the soul: "I am the Cross, I am the Way; I tread upon the work I do." (6)

From the standpoint of our planetary life, at this time in evolution we are inaugurating the third Great Approach, "... which will bring the new revelation, with its realised consequences, of a new heaven and a new earth." (7)

Sagittarius Full Moon Festival

In contemplation of the Light of Sagittarius, we are called to rise ever higher to the opportunity of the December Solstice, aligning our service in the world.

In Sagittarius, the intellect which has been developed, used and finally illumined, becomes sensitive to a still higher type of mental experience and to this we give the name of intuitive perception. There come flashes of light upon problems; a distant yet possible vision of attainment is seen; the man begins to climb out of the depths to which he has descended in Scorpio and sees ahead of him the mountain in Capricorn which he knows he must eventually climb. (8)

It is by way of the battlefield of Scorpio that we are transmuted and now may become single-minded in service to the One Life.

He walks no longer in the dark, for he sees what he has to do and he therefore makes rapid progress and travels "fast upon the Way." He "flies from point to point, searching for the arrows which he has discharged." He has, figuratively speaking, to dismount constantly from his white horse (the developed and purified personality) and find where the arrows of intuitional aspiration will take him; he travels upon the "wings of the soul" (note the relationship to the winged feet of Mercury, the messenger of the Gods) and becomes, in his own personality, himself the winged God: Mercury, as you know, governs Gemini, the polar opposite of Sagittarius. This he does until he has established a balanced relationship between the personality and the soul and can function as either at any desired moment with equal facility. (9)

The dual nature of the disciple and the struggle between the human and animal natures is represented in the Centaur, the ancient symbol for Sagittarius. Later the Centaur was replaced by the symbol of the Archer on the white horse, signifying the one-pointed disciple working with the soul.

While we observe the seemingly chaotic world events and through detachment, consider them as manifestation of the evolving Plan of God, we may similarly contemplate our personality issues, daily struggles and the times where our aim goes askew and gain a sense of perspective in light of our spiritual goal of achieving the greatest good, on behalf of All-that-Is.

Through our evolving identification with the Divine essence in all, the unity consciousness requisite for the good of the whole ~ All of Life ~ is developed by means of the Yoga of Synthesis.

In alignment to Purpose, we are given a glimpse of this far distant goal. Fixing our attention, we become poised and aim for it with the arrow of fixed intention. Keeping our focus on the long term goal enables us to deal with those short term difficulties encountered in reaching it.

 

We see the goal, we reach that goal and then we see another. (10)

Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation

Cosmically Aligned, We Embrace
The Eternal Rhythm of the Ages,
The Rhythm of the Sages

 

We now link up with people of goodwill everywhere, as part of the united group channel through which the spiritual forces can become available. Affirming this channel, "We stand poised united as One Soul with our Spiritual Hierarchy." We hold the focus.

We visualize and become the Chalice we have together created, as a grid of light all over the earth connecting the light of every lightworker and each sacred energy vortex. This network serves as a conduit through which the heavenly blessings may flow through every one of us and to the planet Earth.

When we have achieved this, we join in the creative work ...

United, we rise to meet the light. Our combined, directed thought is clearly focused and in response, the great gateway that is Sagittarius opens wide. We are bathed in Divine light.

The energy of Sagittarius marks another point of balance on the great wheel of life. For we, as world servers, must be poised and balanced to find our direction true.

The clouds of unfocused and selfish thoughts are parted and we are further freed from illusion. We continue our Spiritual journey with clear vision and new insight.

We practice the right use of thought, putting an end to all tendencies to use thought destructively.

We restrain any selfish use of speech, resulting in the beautiful, newly found way of harmlessness. This opens the path to our liberation, and an even greater Unity.

We see before us a path of light. The path leads to a center of light ~ in this place and space we sense our identification with the Divine Plan and Purpose.

We experience ... fusion ... synthesis ... at-one-ment.

The greatest good for the whole is our goal.

 

Gone are me or you.
We are the way true.
Seeking the connection,
Finding our direction.

 

As we emerge from meditation, we are joined in this stream by lightworkers everywhere on the planet and from on high. With focused mind, heart and will, together we say ...

 

The Great Invocation

From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let Light stream forth into our minds
Let LIGHT descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let Love stream forth into our hearts
May LOVE increase on Earth.

From the center where the Will of God is known
Let Purpose guide our wills
The PURPOSE which the masters know and serve.

From the center which we call Humanity
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.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
Let LIGHT and LOVE and POWER
restore the Planet Earth!

- adapted version (11)

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.

Sagittarius Information Synthesis

 

The Light of Sagittarius: A beam of directed, focused Light

In this the point of light becomes the beam,
revealing a greater light ahead and
illumining the way to the centre of the light.
(12)

 

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. (13)

December Solstice The Winter Solstice occurs each year on December 21. At this time each year the Christ energy enters the Earth, infusing our world with the ideal of perfection and the desire for a re-merging with the One. As the light returns, we may join the Spiritual Hierarchy in beginning their meditation to prepare for the coming Wesak.

The Seven Cosmic Paths "This subject is considered ... to be devoid of form and therefore incognisable to the lower concrete mind." (14) 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.

The Path of Training for Planetary Logoi The source of this Third Cosmic Path is Betelgeuse, via the sign Sagittarius. "This Path is sometimes called the 'Lotus Path,' as it concerns itself with the construction of the logoic Lotuses of solar Logoi." (15)

Sagittarius Zodiacal Deity "Sagittarius, we are told, is the spirit of truth; it is the sum of all Truth growing out of individual revelation." (16) In Sagittarius, Soul consciousness in its early stages unfolds through the use of intuition and aspiration. Keynote: I vision. (17)

Avatars ~ Divine Embodiments This type of greater Avatar expresses the impulse behind Divine Purpose.

Sagittarius Labor of Hercules "Sagittarius has sometimes been called 'the sign of the effect of Scorpio'. The moment we have freed ourselves from illusion, that moment we enter into Sagittarius and we see the goal. We have never really seen it before, because between us and the goal there is always to be found that cloud of thought forms that prevents us from seeing it." (18)

December Solstice The Winter Solstice occurs each year on December 21. At this time each year the Christ energy enters the Earth, infusing our world with the ideal of perfection and the desire for a re-merging with the One. As the light returns, we may join the Spiritual Hierarchy in beginning their meditation to prepare for the coming Wesak.

Yoga of Synthesis As we focus on the Oneness of All, we are able to express the self in light of the larger perspective and thereby assist in bringing through the Divine Plan and Purpose.

5 Forces Affecting Evolution These cosmic and systemic causes are responsible for the present crisis and difficult situation in the world.

The Night Sky 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. Moon Phases

Lunar Theme: The Neurology of Our Relationships & The New Solar Year "This November 29, 2016 New Moon nests upon the foot of Ophiuchus and over the Scorpion. It conjoins Juno, asteroid of covenant partnerships. [Image] ... The left leg and foot of Ophiuchus also conjoins Al Niyat (σ) of the Scorpion, which ... links Antares, the heart of the Scorpion, with the Scorpion's head. Al Niyat is of our meridians and neurology, and articulates our need to establish a refined neurological function within self and greater emotional and physical equilibrium ... [this] requires cellular transmutation through physical and emotional inner work ... Ophiuchus ... articulates healing, self-mastery, awakening and illumination, Al Niyat impels us to bring extremes of opposite neurological polarities into balanced and stable functioning ... The Solstice ... sets tone for the astronomical New Year ... 'initiating change in the neurology of our relationships' ..." - Nick Fiorenza gives insights to this lunar cycle, which begins Nov 29, 4:18 am PST and ends Dec 28, 10:53 pm PST.

Preparation for Participation in This Meditation Focus

If possible, we suggest being in meditation at the exact time of the full moon. For this meditation, and as each is able to join the world group at the time of the full moon (Tuesday, December 13 at 4:05 pm PST /
Wednesday, December 14 at 00:05 UT), it's suggested to begin meditating earlier so to be in deep meditation at the exact time, and then continue for as long as you feel compelled.

We at SouledOut.org will align for this global meditation the evening of Monday, December 12 at 9:00 pm PST (05:00 UT Tuesday, December 13) ~ and all who wish to join in at this time are invited to do so.

We also encourage utilizing SouledOut.org's Global Meditation in group formation at the exact time of the full moon, and whenever possible during this festival's safeguarding cycle.

If you are unable to join us at this time, choose a time within 12 hours before or after to align with these energies and participate in this global meditation.

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, 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 our meditation service 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 Sagittarius.

The Full Moon Cycle We Are Observing ...

From new moon to new moon, Wednesday, November 30 through Thursday, December 29, 2016.

Divine Truths of Deity These basic truths are commonly held by all the world's revealed religions.

Cosmic Identification It is through the practice of identification with the Divine Life itself that we may begin to comprehend the nature of Spirit. And, to bring Spirit fully into our daily lives is service to the One.

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.

One with The Divine When the Planetary Logos connects with the Solar Logos, Shamballa ~ or the Will of God ~ is their point of union. (19) We are called to connect there with Them, and in this way to embrace the Plan of Love and Light.

The Spiritual Kingdom Manifests We approach the Hierarchy and as this occurs, Humanity evolves into the Spiritual Kingdom.

The Fact of the Path to God "All paths lead to the same place," it is said. Indeed, that we are able to access this course is a key to our redemption out of matter in our inevitable return to Spirit.

Betelgeuse The sun Betelgeuse is a source of cosmic energy streaming towards our system. This influence reaches our system by way of the constellation Sagittarius. (20)

Transformation~Pluto Following Pluto's transit through the constellation Scorpio, Pluto now moves through the constellation Sagittarius and the sign Capricorn.

Mutable Cross This is the Cross of temporal and temporary change, of fluidity and of those constantly altering environments driving the soul within the form from one extreme of experience to another, which shuttles the life between the pairs of opposites. (21)
