The full moon occurring at the time of the Gemini Solar Festival is known as the Festival of Goodwill, or the Festival of Humanity. In this post, we offer you two different ways to participate in this global spiritual festival, and we hope you will join us in celebrating goodwill among all humanity.

This year the Festival of Goodwill occurs at the time of the Full Moon in Sagittarius, on Saturday June 3, 2023, at 11:42 PM Eastern time.
At that time, the incarnate and discarnate Guides and Teachers of all the Mystery Schools of the East and West join together to light the flame of unconditional love in the hearts of human beings, and to arouse a fountain of inner loving wisdom in the minds of all humanity.
That fountain of loving wisdom is known as Buddha Mind to the Initiates of the East and Higher Mind to Initiates of the Western Mystery Schools.
During the Festival of Goodwill, the love of Christ and the wisdom of the Buddha are showered down upon the Earth.
At this time, spiritual disciples of all paths and lineages and religions around the world receive inspiration and instructions concerning their roles and duties for the upcoming year.
The Hierarchy of Spiritual Guides and Teachers overseeing humanity’s spiritual evolution join with the Cosmic Christ and provide a roadmap of the coming year's seasonal cycles to all disciples, planting the seeds for all the spiritual activities that disciples will undertake during the next year.
Most importantly, the Hierarchy and the Cosmic Christ engulf the entire planet with a powerful high-frequency energetic charge known as The Will to Good, which is distributed through power spots around the world to all willing recipients.
This energy acts as a powerful stimulant, strengthening the will forces in struggling humanity, and acts as a beneficent power surge, impelling disciples on all paths to internalize the energy of Goodwill. Once energized, aspirants will find it easier to act with Goodwill toward all.
The energy released on the Full Moon Festival of Humanity circulates throughout the etheric body of planet Earth for five full nights and days, 2 1/2 days prior to the Full Moon and for 2 1/2 days after the Full Moon.
All those who wish to participate in this Festival of Humanity would do well to set aside some time during that five day period for meditation and participation in this global spiritual festival. The most auspicious time to participate is the evening prior to the Full Moon.
Creative Visualization for the Festival of Goodwill
To enhance your receptivity to these beneficent energies try these activities on the five nights of the Festival beginning on the eve of the Full Moon:
Simply sit alone, or join with other like-minded individuals and visualize the planet Earth surrounded by a grid of light.
Dodecahedron with Icosahedral Caps
The Christ Consciousness Grid, actually a set of seven grids in rainbow colors that surrounds the Earth, is in the form of a pentagonal dodecahedron with icosahedral caps.
The dodecahedron is one of The Five Platonic Solids. There are only five three dimensional polyhedrons whose faces are identical regular polygons. They are the cube, tetrahedron, octahedron, icosahedron and dodecahedron.
Plato associated the cube with the element of Earth, the tetrahedron with the element of fire, the octahedron with the element of air, and the icosahedron with the element of water.
"There still remained a fifth construction, which the god used for embroidering the constellations on the whole heaven," wrote Plato. That Fifth Element, Spirit, or Universal Life Force energy, is represented by the dodecahedron.
21st Century students of sacred geometry associate the dodecahedron with the energy of the stars, and with the energy of the Zero Point Field, which fills the so-called vacuum of space, within which the stars are embedded.
Images from Johannes Kepler’s book “Harmonices Mundi” (1619)
Astrophysicists, following up the work of 20th Century quantum physicists researching the roots of inertia, found that the void of deep space is in fact a limitless self-sustaining source of Zero Point Energy. Zero Point Energy appeared to some astrophysicists to be the most ubiquitous energy in the Universe.
This discovery was instrumental in reframing our understanding of the Universe. Astrophysicists began to question if matter is the fundamental building block of our Universe, as Newtonian physics had proclaimed. Instead, Zero Point Energy, which is coterminous with the vast field of the Void in deep space, appears to be the true origin of all matter in the Cosmos.
The Christ Consciousness Grid, delineating a dodecahedron, symbolizing the Universal energy of Source, is said to play a crucial part in the quickening of humanity’s evolving spiritual consciousness at this time.
The sacred dodecahedron displays icosahedral caps, symbolizing the watery nature of the Universal Life Force Energy that informs, unfolds, structures and sustains all forms and sentient beings that exist in the manifold Univers.
The Christ Consciousness Grid is a bridge, a doorway between our material Universe and the realms of subtle energy that lie beyond the Space-Time Continuum, the home of angels, devas, nature spirits, and our Spiritual Hierarchy.
By tuning in to this matrix of light and consciousness surrounding Planet Earth on the five nights of the Full Moon Festival of Humanity, by sending energy to that matrix, and by consciously focusing our intent to unite our energies with all individuals of good will around the world during a day of global meditation, humanity opens a door into the spiritual world, through which Ascended Guides and Teachers associated with Wisdom Schools of both East and West can pour energetic blessings and specific guidance appropriate to the time and place and situation of each and every person taking part in The Festival of Goodwill.
At the Goodwill Festival the Spiritual Hierarchy, guided by the Christ, showers the Will-to-Good upon Planet Earth. All those who participate in meditation during the five nights of the Sagittarius Full Moon receive and distribute these energies into the world.
So, join in the worldwide meditation, ask that all individuals be given the grace and guidance they need during this coming year to fulfill their loftiest spiritual goals. Pray that all those working for peace, justice and restoration of this Garden Planet be given the will forces, the courage, the energy, the endurance and the opportunity to be of maximum service in the world.
Connect through the Christ Consciousness Grid with your fellow Lightworkers, feel their presence and energy, and seek to unite with them during this festival. Together we will all cross the bridge of rainbow light, and unite in Higher Mind with our Guides and Teachers, with Buddha and Christ.

Use your intentions, your prayers, or your favorite crystals to send light and love through the Christ Consciousness Grid to the entire web of life on Planet Earth and you will automatically connect with the Spiritual Hierarchy.
Open yourself to receive the blessings being poured down by Humanity’s Wisdom Teachers, both incarnate and disincarnate, and prepare to receive messages of loving wisdom designed to help accelerate your spiritual and material progress throughout the coming seasons of summer, fall and winter.
Filling ourselves with love and wisdom from Source, together we will distribute our blessings to all of humanity, and to Mother Earth and the myriad beings inhabiting the vast web of life on our blue-green planetary home.
Meditation for the Festival of Goodwill
Place a flower on your altar or near your place of meditation. Place a bowl of water on your altar or near your seat. If you have some water you gathered during the Wesak Full Moon Festival, use that water at this time as an offering to Grandmother Earth.

If possible, light a wax candle, a ghee lamp, or an electric candle to represent the kindling of the spirit, the awakening of the Higher Mind and the flame of compassion lit within the open heart. You may also burn some incense or sage, to create a spiral pathway from earth to sky, sending an offering to those Beings of Light who join their energies to ours during this Full Moon Festival.
Enjoy this meditation on the day of the Full Moon, celebrating the Festival of Goodwill!
Opening Invocation: "I now see Heaven on Earth; Heaven and Earth as One; the anchoring of the Kingdom of Heaven; the spiritual principles in open expression on earth; thus leading to the universal recognition that all are one."
“The children of humanity are one, and I am one with them.
I seek to love, not hate;
I seek to serve and not exact due service;
I seek to heal, not hurt.
“Let the soul control the outer form,
And life and all events
And bring to light the love
Which underlies the happenings of the time.
“Let vision come and insight.
Let the future stand revealed.
Let inner union demonstrate and outer cleavages be gone.
“Let love prevail.
Let all people love.”
Then sit in meditation, for as long as is suitable for you.
Visualize an egg of swirling multi-colored light surrounding you.
Breathe slowly and deeply from the belly for a count of five on each inbreath, and up to ten on each outbreath.
Thoth - the god of the moon and of wisdom - laid a cosmic egg that held within it the essence of creation.
Within the shell of this egg, Re/Ra, the powerful solar god, awaited his birth.
On each in-breath, visualize a golden light streaming into your aura from above, strengthening your auric field.
On each out-breath, visualize light streaming forth from your third eye, ascending to the heavens, to the Christ Consciousness Grid surrounding Planet Earth.
As you continue to breathe and meditate, become aware of the myriad streams of light being directed to the Christ Consciousness Grid surrounding the Earth by millions of Lightworkers, seekers and meditators worldwide.
Feel the increase in the light around you, within you, and within the Christ Consciousness Grid surrounding the Earth, with each breath you take.
Know that as the light increases within you and around you on every in-breath, you direct a more and more powerful stream of energy to the Christ Consciousness Grid and to all humanity with every out-breath.
When you have energized your aura and directed your light to the Christ Consciousness Grid for a few minutes, simply sit in quiet contemplation.
Continue deep breathing, and ask your Ascended Guides and Spiritual Teachers, incarnate or disincarnate, to send you messages containing the loving wisdom you will need to fulfill your spiritual and material goals during the coming year.
Ask to be enlightened about golden opportunities for loving service coming your way in the months to com.
Ask for loving wisdom you may need to overcome inner and outer difficulties in the year ahead.
Sit quietly and allow messages of love and light and Cosmic wisdom to infuse your mind with grace and guidance from Higher Mind.
Finally, when you are finished, thank your fellow lightworkers, the Spiritual Guides and Teachers of the Wisdom Schools of the East and West, and Grandmother Earth.
Close with a blessing to the whole world:
“Compassion to All Beings
North - South - East - West - Above - Below
Compassion to All Beings.”

Drink the water in your bowl, save for a small amount, which you may sprinkle on living plants or grasses, preferably outside your dwelling, as a final offering to the Earth, and to the devas and nature spirits who work so diligently to optimize, structure and regulate the forces vivifying the natural world.
Jane and I affirm that this Full Moon you all shall receive the grace and guidance you need to fearlessly engage with the retrograde forces so prevalent in our world today, and to envision the solutions to our society's seemingly intractable problems during this Global Festival of Goodwill and for the entire year to come!
