Suggested visualizations for use with the Great Invocation

When you say the first line: "From the point of Light..."
visualize (or think of, if you cannot visualize Him) the Buddha, the Embodiment of Light or Wisdom on the planet. Visualize Him sitting in the lotus posture, saffron robe over one shoulder, hand raised in blessing, and see emanating from the heart center, the ajna center, (between the eyebrows), and the upraised hand of the Buddha, a brilliant golden light. See this light enter the minds of men and women everywhere.

When you say the line: "Let light descend on Earth,"
visualize the sun, the physical sun, and see emanating from it beams of white light. See this light enter and saturate the Earth.

When you say: "From the point of Love..."
visualize the Christ (the Embodiment of Love), however you see Him. A suggested way is to see Him standing at the head of an inverted Y-shaped table, standing, arms raised in blessing, and see emanating from the heart center and the upraised hands of the Christ, a brilliant rose-colored light (not red). Visualize this rose light entering the hearts of men and women everywhere.

When you say the line, "May Christ return to Earth"
remember that this refers to the Hierarchy as a whole and not only to the Christ. He is the heart center of the Hierarchy, and although He is now among us, the remainder of the Hierarchy (that part of it which will externalize slowly, over the years) still requires to be invoked; the magnetic conduit for Their descent has still to be maintained.

When you say: "From the center where the Will of God is known..."
which is Shamballa, visualize a great sphere of white light. (You can place it, mentally, in the Gobi desert, where it is, on the two highest of the four etheric planes. One day, when mankind has developed etheric vision, which it will in the coming age, this center will be seen and known, as many other etheric centers will be seen and known.) Streaming from this sphere of brilliant light, visualize beams of light entering the world, galvanizing mankind into spiritual action.

Do this with focused thought and intention, your attention fixed on the ajna center between the eyebrows. (If your attention wanders, silently think the word "OM" -this helps to bring the attention back to the ajna center). In this way you form a telepathic conduit between your Self and Hierarchy. Through that conduit the energies thus invoked can flow.

The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

galvanizing mankind into spiritual action)

From the centre which we call the race of men
(no suggested visualizations for these lines)
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
