Shift - Seven Rays

triangle4Humanity has witnessed several approaches to the understanding of the Seven Rays influencing the evolutionary process on our planet. With each shift, in the cycles, impacting our solar system, humanity enters a new sphere of activity that strengthens their interaction with Shamballa and the Hierarchy. As humanity moves into an expanded state of consciousness, the field of perception begins to shift. The constructs which supported and guided us in the past have transformed and are now taking on and exhibiting a fresh dynamic mantle of light.

The arc of the Soul and its sphere of activity, during any given incarnation upon the earthly plane, is influenced by three rays. These rays will vary for each Soul and will often shift as the upward journey on the evolutionary spiral becomes a conscious reality. As the Soul realizes how these rays “Color” their earthly experience, a new perspective dawns in their awareness and they can embrace the strengths found within each.

A study of these rays will help in the identification of the guiding force overshadowing the Monad, Soul, and personality. Allow yourself ample time to reflect, during meditation, on the primary traits found in the personality and continue the journey into the exploration of the Soul and Monad.

Once the personality ray has been identified and purification of the four bodies is underway, we can begin working on becoming Soul-infused. This is accomplished by practicing right thought, right speech, and right action (also known as the middle path) in our daily affairs. As these practices become a natural part of our consciousness, an expanded aspect of Soul-infusion is possible by releasing attachments, practicing divine dispassion, and becoming an Observer rather than an actor in life’s unfolding dramas. This will assist in creating a foundation that will support the construction of the antahkarana and the discovery of the Monad.

 We offer this perspective, upon the Seven Rays, for your reflection and consideration. Should this brief outline inspire a desire of inquiry, you will find the journey an illuminating one.

Rays of Aspect:

1. The Ray of Power, Will or Purpose - Red

2. The Ray of Love-Wisdom - Blue

3. The Ray of Active Creative Intelligence - Green

Rays of Attribute:

4. The Ray of Beauty and Harmony through Conflict -Yellow

5. The Ray of Concrete Science or Knowledge - Orange

6. The Ray of Idealism or Devotion - Indigo

The Rays of Aspect are essentially related to the life or will aspect of divinity; the Rays of Attribute are related to the consciousness aspect.

  • Ray 1 - Divine Will - The Head Center - Shamballa
    Ray 1 - Divine Will - The Head Center - Shamballa

    Ray 1 - Divine Will - The Head Center - Shamballa

    1st Ray - Red - The first ray is not presently in exoteric manifestation, and therefore there are very few (if any) first ray souls in incarnation. The first ray is called the ray of power and divine will. On the highest level the first ray is the first aspect of the trinity which is the Father. On human levels it is the ray of leadership, government, action, and adventure. It is also considered the ray of destruction, for the destruction of form, setting the imprisoned life or essence free. It is also the ray that governs the beginning and ending of cycles of activity. thus, first ray personalities and those on other rays who can work effectively with first ray energies are relied upon for leadership. Chohan of the 1st Ray - Master Morya

  • Ray 2 - Wisdom - Love - The Heart Center - The Hierarchy
    Ray 2 - Wisdom - Love - The Heart Center - The Hierarchy

    Ray 2 - Wisdom - Love - The Heart Center - The Hierarchy

    2nd Ray - Blue -The second ray is called the ray of love-wisdom. On the primary level, the second ray functions as the second aspect of the divinity, (the cosmic Christ) the love and wisdom of God. The son (consciousness) is the result or product of the interaction of spirit (the father) and matter (the mother). The second ray is a ray of duality and the resolution of the various pairs of opposites. Being the ray of consciousness, the second ray is the field of activity and influence of the world teacher (the Christ). The Christ is the leader of the spiritual hierarchy of the planet and is responsible for guiding the development and expansion of consciousness. Chohan of the 2nd Ray - Master Koot Hoomi

  • Ray 3 - Active Intelligence - The Throat Center - Humanity
    Ray 3 - Active Intelligence - The Throat Center - Humanity

    Ray 3 - Active Intelligence - The Throat Center - Humanity

    3rd ray - Green - The third ray is called the ray of active intelligence. On the primary level, the third ray is the third aspect of the trinity, the holy spirit. On that level the third ray is intelligence inherent in matter; it is the entire objective universe. On the secondary level of manifestation, the third ray demonstrates as the plane of divine mind (atma) and reflects itself into matter as the mental plane and the principle of manas (mind). The third ray is intricately connected with the animal kingdom, for it is the ray of evolution (adaptability) and activity. The third ray is a synthetic ray for the (minor) four rays of attribute, which may be considered as sub-rays of the third ray. Chohan of the 3rd Ray - Master Paul the Venetian

  • Ray 4 - Beauty or Harmony Through Conflict
    Ray 4 - Beauty or Harmony Through Conflict

    Ray 4 - Beauty or Harmony Through Conflict

    4th ray - Yellow - The fourth ray is called the ray of harmony through conflict. The fourth ray is the mystical ray of balance, between the inwardly directed rays (the first three rays) and the outwardly directed rays (the last three rays), and between each major ray and its reflection. This ray is a major factor in the life of the spiritual student whose task it is to balance the pairs of opposites and tread the middle path. In the objective world, the fourth ray is the ray of beauty, culture, and art. It is a ray of imagination, perception, dramatization, and expression. The fourth ray of duality is a ray of conflict, struggle, and instability leading to harmony, peace, balance, and stability. It is often a painful ray with many lessons for the human personality; it is a ray of crisis, tension, and challenge. With fourth ray energy the spiritual student gradually learns to control the emotional life and bring it into harmony with the dominant mind. Chohan of the 4th Ray - Master Serapis

  • Ray 5 - Concrete Knowledge
    Ray 5 - Concrete Knowledge

    Ray 5 - Concrete Knowledge

    5th ray - Orange -The energy of Concrete Knowledge or Science. This energy has produced science and led to man’s comprehension of the natural world. Because it operates on the plane of the higher and lower mind and because "man" is literally "one who thinks", the 5th ray has special significance to humanity. Chohan of the 5th Ray - Master Hilarion

  • Ray 6 - Devotion
    Ray 6 - Devotion

    Ray 6 - Devotion

    6th ray - Indigo - The sixth ray is the ray of devotion and idealism. The sixth ray is a ray of personal love, desire, idealism, devotion, aspiration, and religion. This ray is a very mystical ray, in which the heart (love) that is centered on the astral plane is transformed into the heart that is centered on the intuitional plane. It is a most difficult ray to conquer, having many weaknesses and many stumbling blocks compounded by glamour; yet within the ray are the energies of overcoming that provide for liberation from the darkness of personal glamours and distractions. Being the ray of religion and a ray of attribute (objectivity), the sixth ray is the means through which religious teachings are revealed. It is clearly a ray of idealism, that is the objectification of (divine) ideas, but an idealism that is necessarily clouded by personal energies. Nevertheless, through religion and through the various ideals (limitations of ideas) man is given guidelines for seeking and (relative) goals to seek. Chohan of the 6th Ray - Master Jesus

  • Ray 7 - Ceremonial Order
    Ray 7 - Ceremonial Order

    Ray 7 - Ceremonial Order

    7th ray - Violet - The seventh ray is called the ray of ceremonial order. The seventh ray is a ray of rhythm, magic, and organization. The seventh ray type includes the priest, the ceremonialist or ritualist, the occult magician, the politician, the producer, and the businessman. As a ray of extreme (physical) objectivity, the seventh ray is somewhat absorbed (distorted) by materialism. The lessons of the seventh ray will eventually lead to a liberation from the lower life based upon material things and phenomena, from the lower chaos (the unorganized) to ordered objectivity, and from ordered objectivity to the higher chaos (synthesized order or abstraction). One of the problems of the seventh ray is that through ceremony, ritual, pageantry, and bureaucracy, the individual or the group can easily lose sight of purpose, meaning (significance) and reality. As a ray of magic, the ray of ceremonial order is a ray of phenomena (psychism and spiritualism) that must be uplifted into a ray of mature spirituality and reverence. Magic based on selfish motives and ignorance (black magic) must be transmuted and transformed into magic based on unselfish motives and wisdom (white magic). Chohan of the 7th Ray - Master R.
