In spiritual terms an invocation is an intense prayer, a calling upon the divine and also it can be a summons.
The Great Invocation is a mantra channelled through Alice Bailey in 1937, intended to be used by all so inclined to invoke the return of the Christ or World Saviour, the Maitreya if you prefer. Another way of looking at it is to see the return not so much in physical terms (though that is not excluded) but as the establishment of the Christ Consciousness on Earth, the period when our humanity becomes integrated totally with soul and spirit.
This is the core of the planetary transition which is occurring now, and it is the heart of the potential for each of us. It is the perfect time, therefore, to make our own invocation to God, to help and accelerate this process of change, for the benefit of all.The Great Invocation remains one of the most powerful mantras of all. It is used by millions of people all over the world, and the more who do so, the more effective it will be.
To assist its purpose, I have made a voice recording of it and it is available to listen to at the bottom of my Home Page from later today. It is not necessary to say the words, for hearing and feeling them in itself will achieve much. It is short, and will only take a minute or so to hear, but I would love you to try it. If you would like to repeat the prayer yourself, it is widely available through the internet search engines or the Lucis Trust website.
Harry, my excellent website manager from CMS-Wales, has promised to put my recording up this morning (2 September) so, technology permitting, it will be there shortly. Every little helps.
