Select the smaller portion of the shadow shape with the Fill Tool. Drag the center of the fill to the center of the flare shape as shown above.
Position all of the glass sphere objects over the text. And that's it!
After I completed the tutorial I had an after thought for making the text in the sphere more realistic. I would think the text in the center portion of the sphere would be darker and sharper while the text and image towards the outside of the sphere would be less sharp.
So, I selected just the text and image and applied a Circular, Stained Glass transparency. To this I applied a Profile 2 preset, but increased the Slider setting from .5 to .75. And I extended the width of the circular transparency to just a little bit beyond the circle. If you are ambitious, you can back track and make these corrections.
