Draco the Celestial Dragon
Suggested Spiritual Focus for Week of September 25 - October 1

 

Meditation Focus ~ Overview

Souledout.org's Meditation Focus theme for 2016 continues for the Virgo full moon cycle. On our annual journey having begun with Aries, we're exploring Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation.

For this year's spring festival cycle we attuned to the flow of energies in and through the spiritual realm, and aligned with this focus. During Leo, with the Sirius energies the recent inflow has been further assmilated.

Now as we continue through the Virgo cycle, we endeavor to work with our present, new impressions and to integrate them into our service in the worlds of expression.

In present time, each and every day we consciously aspire to evolve and raise our vibration. We invite all to participate as we continue through the annual cycle, to extend and embody our awareness of the zodiacal energies of the Lighted Way.

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

2016 Virgo Meditation Theme

 

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

 

For the 2016 Virgo Festival, we continue with this invocation as our spiritual focus mantram.

The Virgo cycle offers an opportunity for each person in the Holy Grail ~ the Sacred Chalice, planet Earth’s Light Grid ~ to further participate in the distribution of the Life which in turn implements the Divine Plan on Earth.

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.

Aligned in group formation we now move through the sign Virgo, and our identification, having been refined and enhanced during Leo, is with the Divine. We draw upon experiences of the Lighted Way to further empower the great global grid in lighting our world.

The constellation Virgo itself holds the hidden Holy Grail in the night sky, and as the Sun traverses the sign Virgo, we're able to tap into this energy towards advancing our service in the world.

During this year's spring festival cycle, we have attuned to the inflow of energies by way of the Spiritual Kingdom, and aligned with this focus. Now as we continue through the year, we endeavor to integrate the new impressions as we also apply them into our service in the world.

Each year, our journey as One is renewed through identification with the Divine ~ now via the Monad, our highest aspect.

As aspirants and disciples, in present time we consciously reestablish our connection to the Divine Plan ~ the unfolding Purpose of the One Life. Through our alignment, according to the Principle of Decision, we 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.

In this service pursuit, we are pursuing Humanity's Divine Destiny, "... mysteriously related to the revelation of love upon our little planet, the Earth, through the process of creation ...." (1)

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 in our service for the annual cycle.

As each individual unit takes responsibility for applying their highest dedication to Purpose, each 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.

Path VII, the Path of Absolute Sonship, relates our solar system to the Great Bear constellation. We may contemplate the streams of energy involved in the great triangle encompassed by that of the Great Bear, of the Solar Logos, and the seven streams of energy which come from our seven sacred planets. "Through this triangular door all the great Avatars enter our system and 'find the Point where they can serve.'" (2)

The revealed quality of Synthesis corresponds largely to the Life aspect, that which enlivens all forms. Synthesis is. (3) 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 (4), 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." (5)

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." (6)

Virgo Full Moon Festival

Virgo ~ the Virgin ~ symbolizes the form nature. Under the auspices of Virgo, Soul and body are united, and we're told they are of great importance to each other: "... matter guards, cherishes and nurtures the hidden soul." Likewise, the Divine Mother nurtures the Christ ~ the Hope of Glory. (7)

It is here, in Virgo, that the intentional impregnation of form by spirit occurs. Informing substance, the Divine seed germinates in Virgo. Through our work with the matter aspect, the end result is the Sacred Form ~ ultimately, the manifestation of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.

... Virgo (the mother or custodian of the Christ-consciousness) ... shatters eventually the synthesis and the lower unity ... it stimulates the soul within the form ... because the genius and uniqueness of Virgo is that it produces the form as well as stimulates the life within that form and, therefore, nourishes and energises two lives simultaneously. It is a powerful dual energy, a potent expression of the anima mundi or the soul of the world. (8)

The planetary Hierarchy, Deity, and the Great White Lodge on Sirius are calling on each of us to act wisely, as impressed through the previous month's Sirius~Leo Cosmic Festival.

In this light, the following additional notes from Bailey's discussion of Virgo in Esoteric Astrology are helpful to consider.

• Virgo also represents the Hidden Light of God.

• Virgo is the guardian of the light of wisdom.

• Virgo is, therefore, the opposite pole of spirit and stands for the relation of these two after they have been brought together ....

• Virgo is ... the cosmic Mother because she represents cosmically the negative pole to positive spirit; she is the receptive agent where the Father aspect is concerned.

• In Virgo, matter or substance exchange or interchange their service and each serves the other.

• ... Virgo "involves the service of the immediately present" or in other words ... God immanent evokes reaction from the form side and is thereby served. (9)

Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation

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

We link up with people of goodwill everywhere, creating a 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 this focus.

We now visualize and become the Chalice we have created together, as a grid of light all over the earth that connects 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.

Achieving this alignment, we become still and receptive ...

We rise as One, seeking the Light from on high.

In response the gateway that is Virgo swings open wide and the Light pours into and through us all. This great light illumines and ensouls the Chalice we create, together with our Spiritual Hierarchy.

As the Chalice grows ever brighter, our sense of Unity grows ever deeper.

We grow by becoming ever more inclusive. Three outstanding qualities of Virgo come to mind ~ Tolerance, Virtue and Compassion.

A calm ... peace envelops us. In this stillness, we can see and let go of whatever is old and no longer serves. This creates a sacred space within.

The Life now streams in, liberating us and filling us with renewed vitality. Any darkness within fills with light.

The World Teacher, the Christ, comes alive in our Heart in new ways. We sense rebirth as Spirit emerges within. A more vital way of being is manifested.

Virgo provides a holy vessel for Spirit. And Mercury, winged messenger for the Divine, works through Virgo to bring the energy of Love-Wisdom.

This is the cycle for us to open to Divine Ideas that come through, letting these seeds be planted.

Matter is the vehicle of manifestation for the Soul in present time. We as world servers are creating the future, when the Soul fully becomes the vehicle for the manifestation of Spirit.

We are a truly Joyful part of the great Trinity, synthesized by the Life which pervades All.

 

The Christ in Us the Hope of Glory
We Serve, to Create Our Divine Story

 

As we emerge from meditation, with focused mind, heart and will, we dynamically intone The Great Invocation, and 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 (10)

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.

Virgo Information Synthesis

 

Virgo ~ The blended dual Light.
Two lights are seen ~ bright and strong, the light of form;
one faint and dim, the light of God. This light is distinguished
by a waxing of one and the waning of the other.
It differs from the light in Gemini.
(11)

 

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. (12)

The Chalice Besides being a symbol of the inner plane world group alignment, the chalice also signifies the place in the etheric body that receives and disseminates the "gifts of the Higher Forces" which are then used in service. (13)

The Holy Grail The Chalice "is the receiver and container of the life of God." (14) It is the highest meaning of the constellation Virgo.

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.

Monadic Consciousness We attune to our Monadic essence ~ "We are THAT and THAT are we."

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

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

Virgo Zodiacal Deity Virgo, the cosmic mother, imparted to humanity her sacred gift of love ~ the birth of the Christ consciousness in the human heart.

Virgo Labor of Hercules The sixth great test of Hercules in Virgo was to obtain the girdle of Hippolyte, representing unity achieved through struggle and conflict. Hercules failed but then redeemed himself, as is the case with every human being in the attempt to become spiritualized.

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: New Directions "This September 1, 2016 Lunar Cycle is packed full with non-stop significant planetary aspects occurring one after another, producing an exceptionally dynamic lunar month. It begins with an Annular Solar Eclipse ... visible in Africa and Madagascar ... a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse occurring on September 16 ... is visible throughout Asia, India, Eastern Africa, and Western Australia ... eclipse lunar cycles mark a time of shifting into a new octave of experience ... Solar eclipses ... redefine ... our self-perception and self-expression ... Lunar eclipses provide ... an emotional resynchronization." - Nick Fiorenza gives insights to this lunar cycle, which begins Sept 1, 2:03 am PDT and ends Sept 30, 5:11 pm PDT.

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 (Friday, September 16 at 12:05 pm PDT ~ 19:05 UT), 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.

We at SouledOut.org will align for this global meditation the evening of Thursday, September 15 at 9:00 pm PDT (04:00 UT September 16, Friday) 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 be part of 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 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 Virgo-themed 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.

As you wish, feel free to continue use of this meditation for the entire month of the Virgo full moon cycle.

The Full Moon Cycle We Are Observing ...

From new moon to new moon, beginning Thursday, September 1 through Friday, September 30, 2016.
