Sirius and Initiation
Seed Thoughts


Each year at the Sirius~Leo alignment, a great light is becoming even more available, bringing to us a new opportunity, a new path.

The Soul Light within us is ever increasingly aware of the spiritual light emanating from Sirius. This light is like no other.

Remember the first time you glimpsed the Soul Light ~ the brilliance, the beauty, the illumined truth it conveyed. The Spiritual Light from Sirius is of such potency, it is initially beyond our comprehension.

We seek this holy light, and in doing this prepare for Humanity to become one with this light.


Meditation on the forces from Sirius will become of ever greater importance, it will bring our world together. Just as the personality comes under the influence and direction of the soul light, we will relinquish the very Light of Soul to this greater Light of the One Life.

In time, humanity as a whole will give itself up to become a distributing and radiating center in the cosmic Heart, which is its home. This is the perfection of substance itself, a sacred Earth.

A great world Festival at the time of the Sirius~Leo alignment during Leo shall arise from this continued effort, as Humanity via the Hierarchy dedicates our channel to contacting Sirian light.

The Sirius~Leo Cosmic Festival prepares humanity and in turn planet earth for the realization of this Divine Destiny ~ our great cosmic service, bringing us into contact with the Heart of God.

Under the influence of Leo, responsiveness grows and sensitivity increases. The world of smaller, more personal affairs is converted into the world of ever larger values and reality. Right human relations and the greater spiritual good dominate our thinking and our activities. Desire changes into aspiration, and finally into spiritual will, purpose and intent.

Fully self-aware, the Lion emerges from its lair. The fluid synthesis with the opposite sign is realized ~ the self-awareness gained in Leo opens the door to the group service of Aquarius. This is expressed in the words, "Father, not my will but thy will be done."

Each year, the three major Spiritual Festivals celebrated in the spring align humanity with the three major divine aspects of Love, Will and Intelligence.

These Spring Festivals prepare our vehicles to cooperate with our Planetary Logos, Sanat Kumara, and assist humanity as a united group in becoming aware of extra-planetary energies. The Spring Festivals are preparatory for the Sirius~Leo Festival, which aligns the soul-infused, focused humanity with the cosmic energies of the Sirian Hierarchy.

Then every year, during the sign Leo our brightest star Sirius reveals itself anew as it rises in the east, ushering in a brand new day.

The influences of Sirius are focused through Regulus, the heart of the Lion, found in Leo. Regulus, also known as the Lawgiver, concentrates the energy of Sirius toward the earth and acts as a regulator for these evolutionary energies.

Two major streams of energy enter our planetary life:

a. The stream of energy coming from the soul of Sanat Kumara and carrying the life principle of our planet, centered in Shamballa.

b. The stream of energy coming from Sirius, this enters directly into the Hierarchy and carries with it the principle of buddhi, of cosmic love. This, in a mysterious way, is the principle found at the heart of every atom.

- from Path IV of Higher Evolution, the Path to Sirius,
The Rays and the Initations, p. 413–419, Alice A. Bailey

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.

The Principle of Freedom has potential to permeate substance in a unique manner. This divine principle represents an aspect of the influence Sirius exerts on our solar system and particularly on our planet, Earth.

The influence of Sirius is not consciously felt until after the third initiation, Transfiguration. Under the influence of Sirius, and with effort by the individual, the true nature of spirit begins to dawn upon us, liberating us from duality and awakening our intuitive perceptions of higher mind.

This awakening comes via the Hierarchy and illumines the Path to Sirius. Spiritually Sirius is our home, our true source.

Awareness of the Leo-Sirius connection births and builds a new world religion. This is a great and unique opportunity, to be aware of these cosmic energies and of the possibilities they offer humanity for spiritual evolution.


Leo stands in a unique relationship to the sun at the heart of our solar system. The planetary and systemic alignment established at this Festival is a heart / soul alignment. The heart of humanity, the heart of the planet ~ the spiritual Hierarchy ~ and the heart of the sun create the channel which extends to Sirius, that great "star of initiation" within the universe. Sirius has a unique relationship with our planet Earth and through Sirius the pure energy of love flows through the solar centre and into the planetary heart.

This alignment is evocative of the cosmic principle of Love and Freedom, both of which flow through Sirius and Leo into our range of awareness. These two principles are making an increasing impact on human consciousness, affecting all areas of life. As we seek to work with these energies and to cooperate with the spiritual Hierarchy of the planet, the result should be the increasing manifestation in humanity of the principle of Love and the freeing of human life from the bondage of materialism and all that tends to imprison the human spirit.
