Cancer Festival Global Meditation
As we enter the 2017 Cancer full moon cycle, Souledout.org's Meditation Focus theme continues. On our annual journey having begun with Aries, we're continuing to explore the ongoing theme, Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation.
Following the cycle's new moon on Friday, June 23 we join in the meditation focus shared here and on WeCycle Wisdom for contemplation over the month ahead.
You're encouraged to work with this meditation channel throughout the lunar cycle surrounding the July 8 full moon in Cancer~Capricorn.
Throughout the current lunar cycle surrounding the full moon during Cancer, we ask all in our subjective group, according to your inspiration, to utilize the materials presented here as seeds for the daily meditation ritual.
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.
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 assimilate the new impressions as we also integrate them into our service in the world.
2017 Cancer Meditation Theme
Cosmically Aligned, We Embrace
A water sign, Cancer deals with emergence from the herd in order to take further responsibility in the One Life we all share. Our united efforts bring us ever closer to Humanity's Divine Destiny.
Following the three major spiritual festivals, every person in the Holy Grail ~ the sacred Chalice, planet Earth’s Light Grid ~ participates in the annual distribution of the Life and in turn contributes to restoring the Divine Plan on Earth.
The constellation Cancer is said to embody "The Light Within the Form" ~ the so-called, mysterious "dark light" of matter. The light of substance receives the stimulation of consciousness from the Soul in order for Divinity to manifest eventually in all realms and aspects of life.
As this occurs, substance is informed with Spirit and is thereby redeemed to its highest Purpose, and we are impelled to participate in this most high Purpose ~ the Will of Deity.
Creating the sacred form occurs as each of us is uniquely responsible for building our Lighted House and dwelling therein. In doing so, we are creating the forms in which the consciousness of Deity may manifest.
2017 Meditation Theme ~ Annual Cycle
The March equinox began 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, 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 source of Path III, the Path of Training for Planetary Logoi, is given (in Alice Bailey's A Treatise on Cosmic Fire) as the star Begelgeuse by way of the sign Sagittarius. In that the sun projects the energy of Betelgeuse (at 28°53' Gemini) each year on and around the day of the June solstice, our perspective of this Path may develop further during Cancer, as well as during the month of the sign Sagittarius.
The revealed quality of Synthesis relates largely to the Life aspect, that which enlivens all forms. Synthesis is. (2) 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 (3), 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." (4)
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." (5)
Cancer Full Moon Festival
As we work with the new energies flowing through planet Earth in expression of the 2017 Festivals, now in Cancer we each prepare ourself to participate in a higher spiral of the united channel for the Life:
Every person in the Holy Grail ~ the Sacred Chalice, planet Earth’s Light Grid ~ participates in the distribution of the Life and in turn we are collectively restoring the Divine Plan on Earth. Each one is uniquely responsible for this restoration. As the Life enters and flows through all individuals.
Cancer relates to creation on the physical plane. Its ultimate result is the manifestation of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth ~ the Sacred Form. The Life enters and flows through all individuals and into our world, and eventually this makes the whole planet sacred.
The evolutionary path concerns the liberation of matter in alignment to Divine Purpose, and this requires the orientation to be maintained on the level of higher mind, or Soul.
In doing so, we become increasingly conscious of the choices we make, where we put our energies and what we are manifesting.
It is from this purified space that we now create, going forward according to the Secret of Creation.

Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation
Cosmically Aligned, We Embrace
We take the needed time to create a sacred space and spiritually align our energies.
We now visualize and become the Chalice we have created together, 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.
The Light and Energy of the One Soul
As we emerge from meditation, with focused mind, heart and will, we dynamically intone ...
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.

Cancer ~ The Light Within the Form
is the diffused light of substance itself,
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. (8)
The New Law of Ancient Dominating Good This divine law is replacing the Ancient Law of Evil Sharing. (9) This law governs the Spiritual Kingdom and in time will also be fully revealed on planet earth.
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 Path of Higher Evolution "This subject is considered ... to be devoid of form and therefore incognisable to the lower concrete mind." (10). Hence, it is through the practice of cosmic identification 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 ~ Path III The masters on this Path work with the soul aspect, within the solar system ~ and not with individual states of consciousness within any group, but rather with the consciousness of the whole and its responsiveness to cosmic impacts. (11)
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 Life.
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.
The Chalice The Holy Grail "is the receiver and container of the life of God." (12) Besides being a symbol, 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 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

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 (Saturday, July 8 at 9:07 pm PDT ~ Sunday, July 9 at 04:07 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.
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
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 horizontal plane, know you are uniting with many others who are also attuning to the energies available at this Global Festival, and that this unifed group focus creates a potent channel for the meditation to be potent and effective.
The Full Moon Festivals Culminate over a Five-Day Period ...
Our Cancer-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 channel and receive. During this time we hold the attitude of dedication and service, and assume that attitude of receptivity to that which our soul will impart, and which will make us of greater
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 vibrational energies for the rest of humanity. We shall not formulate for ourselves what will happen, nor will we look for results or tangible effects.
In the event one may not observe the exact moment when the moon is full, it's important to find some alternate 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 attention outwards, away from ourselves, and our efforts are to pass on the spiritual energies that have been contacted. We assist these Divine energies, transformed into goodwill, in flowing to wherever 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 Cancer full moon cycle.
Cancer Synthesis Supplementary links for further understanding
Cancer Zodiacal Deity Cancer is the doorway into incarnation for human souls to gain the experience needed for our evolution. It is the focused energy of Cancer which makes it a major magnetic or attractive focal point leading to the processes of incarnation.
Cancer Labor of Hercules Hercules's labor in Cancer was to capture the doe ~ that which is elusive and difficult to secure. Through this endeavor we learn there is no success until instinct is transmuted into intuition. Then instinct is subordinated to both intellect and intuition.
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, is the closest major star to our own solar system. Each year close to July 4, America's Independence Day, our sun conjuncts Sirius at 14 degrees Cancer. Sirius is closely associated with Leo, and the Cancer cycle is preparatory to the powerful full moon next month in Leo, for which the Sirius energies are of significant influence.
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." (14)
Cardinal Cross The secret of the Cardinal Cross is the secret of Life itself. (15)Through a study of the Cardinal Cross ~ Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn ~ we can derive a clearer understanding of ordinary, individual, human beings, of group beginnings, and of the significance of the first initiation.
One with The Divine When the Planetary Logos connects with the Solar Logos, Shamballa ~ or the Will of God ~ is their point of union. (16) We are called to connect with Them there, 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.
Principles and Laws Certain universal Principles and Laws are applied through humanity and the other Kingdoms of Nature.
