The Great Invocation

I want to share with you this meditation/prayer and how it works. First some background. This is a prayer channeled through Alice A. Bailey, given to her from Djwhal Khul, a Tibetan Master, in the 1930's.

I must admit when I started with the Great Invocation, I was irritated by some of the archaic and exclusionary language it contained. So, I worked up my own version :).

Since I have been doing my version and the original version, I have become more aware of the original intent of the Great Invocation. First, through John Berges, a colleague that we met during one of the Seven Ray conferences, we learned that there are significant numerological reasons for the exact wording of the Great Invocation. What he had researched made a lot of sense, but I still like my version :), and continue to use both. I have also run across a prayer that has the basic elements of the Great Invocation, but worked into a Native American style, by José Arguëlles. Here they all are, side by side so you can see and feel the differences

The Great InvocationMy Versionby J. Arguëlles

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.

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 Christ Consciousness return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide our will
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the human race
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
and may it seal the door where our disrespect for life and our limitations dwell.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

From the East House of Light
May wisdom dawn in us
So we may see all things in clarity

From the North House of Night
May wisdom ripen in us
So we may know all from within

From the West House of Transformation
May wisdom be transformed into right action
So we may do what must be done

From the South House of the Eternal Sun
May right action reap the harvest
So we may enjoy the fruits of planetary being

From Above House of Heaven
Where star people and ancestors gather
May their blessings come to us now

From Below House of Earth
May the heartbeat of her crystal core
Bless us with harmonies to end all war

From the Center Galactic Source
Which is everywhere at once
May everything be known as the light of mutual love

OH YUM HUNAB K'U
EVAN MAYA E MA HO!

Now, why am I sharing this with you? I believe that because there are many people using this prayer all around the world we can effect change for the entire planet, maybe even the universe. What we are stating is that we are open to allow change - positive change in our minds and hearts, that we are open to learning about the "right use of will" and that we want to be a positive force in the world so that "evil" will be transformed...all good things, yes? We are also acknowledging that we cannot do this alone, that we are joining together through our power and through the power of Source and great Beings to make this happen.

There are many sites that share the Great Invocation - the words and meanings. I invite you to browse these specific sites for more information:

  • Triangles...is a service activity for people of goodwill who believe in the power of thought. Working in groups of three, they establish right human relationships by creating a worldwide network of light and goodwill.
  • Suggested Visualizations for use with the Great Invocation
  • Lucis Trust - The Great Invocation and other information
  • TheGreatInvocation.com - a website with Scripture, Commentary, Books, Music/Video and Translations.

There are also some books and tools by John Berges that both William-Thomas and I can recommend:

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I encourage you to share your feelings by contacting me.

In Love, Light and Healing...
