The full moon approach to the Hierarchy

The time of the full moon is a period when spiritual energies are uniquely available and facilitate a closer rapport between humanity and the Hierarchy. Each month the inflowing energies carry the specific qualities of the constellation influencing the particular month; these energies, playing sequentially upon humanity, establish the "divine attributes" in the consciousness of humanity. As aspirants and disciples we seek to channel the spiritual inflow into human minds and hearts, and thus strengthen the link between the human kingdom and the Kingdom of God.
Entrance upon the Path of Approach is possible for individuals, for groups, and for humanity as a whole as a unit. Energies not usually or normally contacted, can be touched, grasped and utilised at the time of these Approaches, provided that they are contacted in group formation. Thus the individual, the group and humanity are enriched and vitalised.

KEYNOTE of the full moon Approach to the Hierarchy:

"He who faces the light and stands within its radiance is blinded to the issues of the world of men; he passes on the Lighted Way to the great Centre of Absorption. But he who feels the urge to pass that way, yet loves his brother on the darkened path, revolves upon the pedestal of light and turns the other way.
He faces towards the dark and then the seven points of light within himself transmit the outward streaming light, and lo! the face of those upon the darkened way receives that light. For them, the way is not so dark. Behind the warriors—twixt the light and dark—blazes the light of Hierarchy."



We affirm the fact of group fusion and integration within the heart centre of the new group of world servers, mediating between Hierarchy and humanity:

I am one with nay group brothers, and all that I have is theirs.
May the love which is in my soul pour forth to them.
May the strength which is in me lift and aid them.
May the thoughts which my soul creates reach and encourage them.


We project a line of lighted energy towards the spiritual Hierarchy of the planet, the planetary heart, the great Ashram of Sanat Kumara; and towards the Christ at the heart of Hierarchy.
Extend the line of light towards Shamballa, the centre where the Will of God is known.


Hold the contemplative mind open to the extra-planetary energies streaming into Shamballa and radiated through Hierarchy. Using the creative imagination, endeavour to see the three planetary centres—Shamballa, Hierarchy, and Humanity—gradually coming into alignment and interplay.


Reflect on the seed thought—using the appropriate keynote for the zodiacal sign.


Using the creative imagination, visualise the energies of Light, Love and the Will-to-Good pouring throughout the planet and becoming anchored on Earth in prepared physical plane centres through which the Plan can manifest. (Use the six-fold progression of divine Love as the sequence of energy precipitation—Shamballa/Hierarchy/the Christ/the new group of world servers/men and women of goodwill everywhere in the world/physical centres of distribution.)


Refocus the consciousness, as a group, within the periphery of the great Ashram. Together sound the affirmation:

In the centre of all Love I stand From that centre I, the soul, will outward move.
Front that centre I, the one who serves, will work.
May the love of the divine Self be shed abroad, in my heart, through my group, and throughout the world.

Visualise the downpouring spiritual inflow released from Shamballa through the Hierarchy and streaming into humanity through the prepared channel. Consider how these inpouring energies are establishing the "Pathway of Light" for the coming World Teacher, the Christ.


As the Great Invocation is sounded, visualise the outpouring of Light and Love and Power from the spiritual Hierarchy through the five planetary inlets (London/ Darjeeling/New-York/Geneva/Tokyo) irradiating the consciousness of the whole human race:

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

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men—
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men
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.

The double pulsation

extract from Peace means action, p. 65-66

In the heart, the biological organ (bios = life, logos = principle), we can perceive two pulsations: one in the inner space between the body, the periphery, and focal point, the other in the outer space between this focal point [66] and the universal, Breath. The first pulsation relates to the circulation of the blood, thin blood returning to the heart with the first beat, distribution of oxygen-filled blood to the body with the third beat. The inner pulsation relates, in the second beat, to blood sent from the heart to the lungs and the return from lungs to heart. A simple gesture with our hands allows us to feel and be filled with this universal rhythm:

  • Reception - Space: hands in front of shoulders, move towards the centre of the chest, palms facing each other, up to about 10 cm (Fig. 1 and 2)
  • Breath of fire: the two palms move slightly apart and come back, inner pulsation (Fig. 3)
  • Gift - Life: hands apart again then turn slightly forwards in front of shoulders (Fig. 4)

Try to copy this movement and feel the rhythm, it is pleasant and relaxing. The most concrete element, this gesture of the hands, can capture the most abstract element: the Three in One. Yes, spirit is in matter.

This triple rhythm can also be followed consciously:

  • Reception - Space: all elements of space are transferred to the focal point
  • Breath of fire: the focal point contacts the essence of being
  • Gift - Life: the focal point distributes life which fills all elements of space

This exercise can be done continuously and at any moment. The person then has the impression of a flame growing in his chest, or if he thinks about someone, that a flame illuminates that person.

Three hearts can obviously unite in this pulsation, since each heart is thus attuned to the universal rhythm. Other uses can be invented.

The Swan

extract from Peace means action, p. 69

Place a white bird in the centre of the chest, itis wings extending above the breast.
When the heart is filled with joy and rises, the wings unfold.
Try for 2-3 minutes.
Observation shows clearly that it is not a question of imagination, but of a latent, pre-existing outline.
Numerous references to wings, to the white swan, to the dove, in various cultures (Swan of Eternity, Kalahamsa, Dove of Peace) indicate the existence of this trans-cultural symbol inscribed in us.

The Scales

extract from Peace means action, p. 69

Feel the location of the inner voice which tells us what is right, where our actions are judged, where we weigh our thoughts and decisions.
A little bit of attention reveals that this takes place in the centre of the chest.
(One can imagine, but it is not obligatory, scales at the centre of the chest)

Exercices & Méditations

Image of perfection

extract from Source of Consciousness
Called too The Master in the Heart (see Alice Bailey, Letters on occult meditation, p. 84)

Imagine a golden closed lotus at the center of the heart.
While sounding the OM, imagine the opening of the lotus revealing an electric blue light.
Build the image of Perfection or the image of the perfect Being.
When the image is entirely built, sound again the OM and transfer the consciousness to the 12 petals in the crown center (a replica of the center of the heart)
A moment of resounding.
See His (or Her or Its) Love, His Will and His Thought outpouring on the task to do.
Then sound 3 OM, the first OM very slight for the mental plane, the second OM slightly louder for the emotional level, the third OM slightly louder for the physical level, in order to ground the perception in the brain.
