Nurturing the Soul of Community

Make Heart-to-Heart Contact
with Helios and Vesta

In preparation for today’s dictation we are going to practice meditations and exercises the Masters have given us to make heart-to-heart contact with Helios and Vesta. We have been told how important it is to make that contact daily.

Helios and Vesta are our key sponsors, for they are the Father-Mother God of our solar system. They are the twin flames who focus for us the light of the Father-Mother God in the spiritual sun behindour physical sun.

Ikhnaton and Aton

Perhaps one of the best ways to understand the role of Helios and Vesta is to look at the Egyptian Pharaoh Ikhnaton, who, as you know, was an embodiment of Mark Prophet. Thirty-three centuries ago, Ikhnaton recognized the one God in the spiritual sun behind the physical sun, and he called this God “Aton.”

Ikhnaton visualized the Infinite One, Aton, as a divine being “clearly distinguished from the physical sun” yet manifest in the sunlight. Ikhnaton gave reverence to the “heat which is in the Sun,”as he saw it to be the vital heat that accompanied all life. <1> To me, that says that Ikhnaton understood that the heat of the sun represented its spiritual energy.

Ikhnaton created a symbol that depicted Aton as a golden circular disk from which diverging beams radiated. He was careful to point out that the solar disk itself was not God but only a symbol of God. Each diverging beam, or ray, ended in a hand extending over every person as a blessing, and in some depictions the hand brought the ankh, the symbol of life, directly to Ikhnaton and his Queen.

Ikhnaton also saw God as a personality whose “beams nourish every field” and “live and grow for thee.” <2> These beams are the very seeds of light and sparks of light that form our own threefold flame in the secret chamber of our heart. Padma Sambhava once told us, “God’s infinite rays of light are a part of you, for all rays and all sons and daughters of God hail from the one Source.” <3> In other words, we, at our very core and in our very essence, are also formed of God’s light.

Ikhnaton wrote a hymn to Aton that has often been compared to Psalm 104 because it expresses many of the same ideas of the one God imminent within his creation and within the heart of man; it also shows that Ikhnaton knew he owed his very life and success to Aton. Let us look at some lines from the hymn:

Hymn to Aton

Thy dawning is beautiful in the horizon of heaven,
O Living Aton, Beginning of life!
When thou risest in the eastern horizon of heaven,
Thou fillest every land with thy beauty;
For thou art beautiful, great, glittering,
high over the earth….
Thou art in my heart.
There is no other that knoweth thee,
save thy son Ikhnaton.
Thou hast made him wise in thy designs
and in thy might. <4>

Hymn to the Sun

Like Ikhnaton’s sun-disk, Helios and Vesta represent the Infinite One, who extends to us the life-giving rays of our divine source.

In 1970 Helios gave to Mark Prophet a prayer that reflects the same understanding of the power of the sun that Ikhnaton had. It is our “Salutation to the Sun.” Let us give it together and as you recite this decree, visualize Helios and Vesta as radiant beings of light in their etheric retreat, the Temple of the Sun, situated in the spiritual sun behind the sun.

Holy Amethyst once gave a dictation in which she took us on a journey to the sun in a chariot of violet fire. She described Helios and Vesta as “twin flames of pink and gold standing arms outstretched” to receive us in their temple. When we grew near to the Temple of the Sun we found “not greater heat but greater light” and “a coolness and a delight.” <5>

In giving this decree, I would like you to really make contact with that energetic, life-giving source that is the spiritual sun behind the sunof our world.

Salutation to the Sun

O mighty Presence of God, I AM, in and behind the sun:
I welcome thy Light, which floods all the earth,
  into my life, into my mind, into my spirit, into my soul.
Radiate and blaze forth thy Light!
Break the bonds of darkness and superstition!
Charge me with the great clearness
  of thy white fire radiance!
I AM thy child, and each day I shall become
  more of thy manifestation! (3x)

A Daily Ritual

On New Year’s Eve 1994, Gautama Buddha reminded us how important it is to make a daily ritual of facing the Sun of our I AM Presence and the sun of Helios and Vesta. “Recognize,” said Gautama, “that all sons and daughters of God...have the possibility of meditating upon the Great Central Sun through the Sun of their I AM Presence and the sun of Helios and Vesta. This meditation can produce in you a feeling of intense heat or a glow over the third-eye chakra and surrounding the head as a halo.

“With concentrated visualization daily, you can establish such a strong tie to the Great Central Sun as to make you almost oblivious to the darkness of the earth. You must always put this darkness behind you, and when you invoke your tube of light, visualize the rays of the Great Central Sun  streaming down upon you within and without.” <6>

We are going to practice this meditation. First of all, center in your heart. In your mind’s eye face the Sun of your I AM Presence above you—your own personal energy source. See the brilliant, intense white light of your I AM Presence, surrounded by the magnificent, pulsating spheres of your Causal Body.

Receive the light of the sun behind the sun in all of its glory, all of its tempered manifestation on behalf of those who dwell on this planetary home. See the circling, many-colored spheres of your Causal Body around the scintillating white light of your I AM Presence.

In the name of Almighty God, we call for the spheres of the five secret rays and the seven colored rays. We call for this action of the sacred fire to pulsate within us for our purification. In the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit and the Divine Mother, we accept this done this hour in full power, Amen.

Now extend that visualization to Helios and Vesta, our Father-Mother God in the spiritual sun behind our physical sun. See and feel the rays of intense energy from this life-giving source pouring down upon you and making contact with your heart.

Place two fingers of your right hand on your heart. Hold those fingers there and feel the energy regenerating your heart. Let your heart be a receptacle for the action of the sacred fire. Let it be a receptacle for Divine Love. Let it be a receptacle for forgiveness, for all things that must come into balance, for all that we may know or not know about ourselves and our brothers and our sisters and the millions upon the planet who need these light rays from Helios and Vesta.

Now extend that visualization to the Great Central Sun, the supreme energy source in the center of the cosmos. And as you invoke your tube of light, visualize the rays of that Central Sun streaming down upon you, contacting the deepest levels of your being.

Let us give the “Violet Fire and Tube of Light Decree.”

[Decree 0.01, “Violet Fire and Tube of Light Decree,” given 3 times.]

A Cosmic Interchange

The next exercise we’re going to do is taken in part from instruction Padma Sambhava gave us in 1995. This exercise is a cosmic interchange whereby you give yourself to Helios and Vesta and they give themselves to you on the return current of their love.

Padma Sambhava encouraged us not to go a day without engaging in this ritual. “In a sense,” he said, “you become Helios and Vesta and they become you.” <7> So this is like the figure-eight flow; there is a cosmic interchange of energies between you and God.

When I told you at the beginning of this conference that we had an unparalleled opportunity to engraft our heart to the heart of God, I was thinking of this meditation as one of the ways we could do it and keep on doing it when we returned to our homes. The exercise we are going to do involves extending the light of our heart in a filigree thread that makes a direct line of contact from our heart to the heart of Helios and Vesta.

Please center in your heart.

[Meditation music begins.]

Visualize yourself as your spiritual reality depicted in the Chart of Your Divine Self. See your Mighty I AM Presence and Causal Body above you. See your tube of light around you and the violet flame burning within that tube of light. See your dancing threefold flame in the secret chamber of your heart. See that spark of fire from God’s own heart.

Now extend the light of your heart in a filigree thread directly to the heart of Helios and Vesta. Visualize it and intensify it. Over this thread of light, send your love missiles to Helios and Vesta. Feel when you have made contact with the heart of the Father-Mother God in the Sun behind our sun. And feel now the return current of their love for you.

Guard the flow and keep the filigree thread intact so that the currents of the sun may continue to flow to you. As you practice this every day, you will be able to instantly establish this contact, for in reality, time and space are nothing. Now feel the sunbeams of Helios and Vesta warming the chambers of your heart.

Feel these sunbeams flooding your entire body, even your soul. Now, with your mind’s eye, direct Helios and Vesta’s needlelike rays from your heart into the cause and core of darkness. See those rays penetrating right into some point or many points of darkness on this earth. See them dispersing this darkness, chasing away the darkness and replacing it with radiant bursts of light, light, light.

Now, as we give together decree 20.21 to “Helios and Vesta,” go through the steps of this visualization again—extending the light of your heart to the heart of Helios and Vesta, making the contact, feeling the return current of their love.[pause]

Send the rays of light you have received from Helios and Vesta into the core of darkness. And as the light contacts the darkness, see it transformed by the alchemy of Helios and Vesta into light, all light, light, light, light, light.

Let us give decree 20.21 to Helios and Vesta.

Father-Mother Light Mantra

Helios and Vesta!
Helios and Vesta!
Helios and Vesta!
Let the light flow into my being!
Let the light expand in the center of my heart!
Let the light expand in the center of the earth!
And let the earth be transformed into the new day. (9x)

Transform Elemental Life

Now we’re going to give this decree again with a different visualization. Close your eyes and see the light flowing  from Helios and Vesta through your I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self down into your threefold flame.

[Meditation music begins.]

Now visualize that beam extending down into the white-fire sun in the center of the earth that is called the Sun of Even Pressure. As this beam of light reaches the Sun of Even Pressure, see its rays emanating out in all directions. See millions of needlelike rays penetrating into every area of the earth, cleansing the earth and holding the balance for elemental life.

Hold this visualization of the beam of light continuously flowing from Helios and Vesta through your heart and into the center of the earth. And see those rays shoot out from the center of the earth to cleanse the whole planet.

Let us give decree 20.21 again.

[Decree 20.21, “Father-Mother Light Mantra,” Given 9 times.]

Holding our contact with Helios and Vesta, let us sing song 587, “Adoration to the Great Central Sun.” Please sing to all elemental life. Send them tremendous love flames from your heart that they might accelerate and accelerate and win their threefold flame.

[Song 587, “Adoration to the Great Central Sun, sung once.]
