You may wish to play some meditative music as you prepare for the service. If you would also like to utilise the pre-service mantra, it is:

1. Welcome and Introduction
Welcome everyone to this Earth Healing Service which is in the format of the Heart Flow Healing Service II.
Today is Palm Sunday, the gateway into the week of Easter, and in this service we will be preparing for, and opening up to the Easter energies through the Heart of the Lord Jesus.
During this service we ask that the beautiful Light and Love of the Lord Jesus purifies, heals and uplifts humanity and the Earth at this time. Particularly, we will be working with the energies of forgiveness, love and healing.
We are close to the Aries full moon which is culminating at its full radiance, opening the portal to the Easter energies, bringing divine light to humanity and the Earth. The full moon is at 5:48 am AEDT Monday, 29 March (18:48 UTC, 28 March).
To begin with, please read and contemplate the following extract of a text by Ananda Tara Shan*:
‘The whole week of Easter, in Christianity, is called Holy Week, and even though we are of different religions, we can all comprehend why the week of Easter is holy when we get an appreciation of what Easter time stands for.
The Easter Festival, which celebrates the full moon of Aries, a major yearly spiritual festival, in fact celebrates the initiate taking the 4th initiation. That initiation bestows upon the initiate arhatship, or as it is called in western terminology, the crucifixion.
The whole week, starting from the previous Sunday, Palm Sunday, to the following Monday, the day of resurrection, is the symbolic path that describes to the mystic the process in his or her own heart of the triumphant entry of Christ into Jerusalem, His crucifixion, and His consequent resurrection on the cross of matter.
The Holy Week is walked by aspirants and disciples, who follow in the footsteps of the most holy light, the Christ, for the sake of alleviating the suffering in humanity and in the Earth body. With each initiation in the soul, this time of the year has stronger effects upon the disciple. Within and without, the disciple is subjected to processes that lead him or her further onto the path. Persecution and ridicule are often consequences of this spiritual advancement.
The Christ is the great Sun God Who is reborn in nature each year. In all religions, the World Teachers who have represented the Sun God on the physical level have undergone much suffering in order to help the Sun God give birth to the yearly renewal of nature. They also have given of their own life force to further the spiritual evolution of humanity. By self-sacrifice we learn to give up ourself for others to live on, for others to triumph over matter. This victory over matter is celebrated not only at Easter but at all spiritual festivals…’ 1
2. Singing We prepare to sing a song titled 'Lord Jesus'.
Before we sing please read the following passage on Palm Sunday by Paramahansa Yogananda:
‘Spiritually interpreted as relevant to man in every age, Jesus’ triumphant entry into the city of Jerusalem inspires a beautiful symbology. Man’s consciousness is that city of Jerusalem; his thoughts and feelings are the inhabitants. Jesus’ coming into Jerusalem evokes the opening of the gates of man’s devotion to receive the entrance of Christ Consciousness, in its omniscient power, into the bodily kingdom …’ 2

4. Attunement of all present Please follow the guidance below for the Attunement of all present.
'Close your eyes and sit with back straight, hands in your lap or wherever you prefer.
Breathe deeply three times through your nostrils in your own rhythm.
Focus on your little rose heart in front of your heart charka. (30 sec)

Open the door and look into the light. See yourself stepping through the opening and see yourself walking towards your I AM Presence which is awaiting you there.

Open your eyes, and we will read the Invocation of Service to the Heart.
5. Invocation of Service to the Heart Everyone: 'Universal Heart, Heart of the omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient Source of Light, stream forth Your all-pervading goodness and love onto us, bathe us in Your glorious Heart Flow and, through us, heal the Earth and humanity as directed at this Service.'
6. Cleansing Meditation We are preparing for our first meditation which is a mantra song to the Lord Jesus.
Before the meditation, you may wish to contemplate the following text by Paramahansa Yogananda:
‘The true state of the Self, the soul, is bliss, wisdom, love, peace... Real happiness can stand the challenge of all outer experiences. When you can bear the crucifixions of others’ wrongs against you and still return love and forgiveness; and when you can keep that divine inner peace intact despite all painful thrusts of outer circumstance, then you will know this happiness.’ 3
As you meditate and sing this mantra song, feel your heart lift into the holy radiance of the Lord Jesus. Feel and see the divine light of love and forgiveness flowing out to humanity and the Earth.

Song text: Jesus Mantra
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus …
Jesus is in my heart, in my mind, my body Jesus is in my soul, in my Spirit (repeat all)
7. Healing Invocation Everyone: 'We invoke the Great Archangels of Healing, Raphael and Mary, with Whom we shall heal the Earth at this Service.
We invoke the Mother of the Universe Who, through Her compassionate earthly vehicles, heals suffering and pain within the Earth and within humanity.
We invoke the Spirit of Peace Who willingly embraces us with peace and well-being, uplifting us to His realm of perfected consciousness.
We invoke the Spirit of the Heart, which heals all imbalanced and diseased conditions on Earth.'
8. Healing Meditation We now prepare to enter our second meditation which is titled 'Jesus is the Law of Forgiveness', with music by Raphael.
During the meditation, we will be guided on the inner to the Lord Jesus’ Arabian retreat.
Before the meditation, you are welcome to contemplate the following paragraph written by Ananda Tara Shan:
‘The Law of Forgiveness must be understood and then invoked in every situation where the shadow self has made chaos and destruction. It is through that Law that you learn to laugh, to be gentle, to be just, to feel the heart, to know the Self as well as the self, and to act with wisdom learned from making numerous mistakes. Invoke the Law and become Master of your own destiny.’4
The meditation is guided by Ananda Tara Shan and commences with a short talk by Ananda.
The duration of the meditation and talk is approximately 33 minutes.
Please relax and go within.

9. Closing Invocation Everyone: 'To You, Spirit of the Universe, we show our eternal gratitude.'
10. Reading of the Great Invocation** Everyone: 'From the point of Light within the Mind of God, There appears Maitreya as the Son of the Sun. Let His Light stream forth into the minds of men, Let His Light stream forth on Earth. Redeemer, Thou hast come.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God, There comes Maitreya, the Lord of Love. Let His Love stream forth into the hearts of men, Christ the Risen One is here on Earth.
From the Centre where the Will of God is known, Let the Avatar of Synthesis guide the wills of men.
Maitreya, Your Purpose is clear. Avatar of Synthesis, make Yourself known.
We serve You, Masters of the Light.
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 Maitreya restore the Plan on Earth.
Let His Light, Love, and Power be with you.'
**The Great Invocation as given by the Christ to the Lord D.K. has been rewritten by the Christ through Ananda Tara Shan, making it more in keeping with the times.
11. Singing We conclude the Service with our final song which is titled 'Forgiveness'.
