THE SEVEN RAYS are the original divine qualities of the Absolute. Each individual human soul is an essential part of one of the Seven Rays, and through a succession of lifetimes the qualities of that Ray are developed and refined, to further the evolution of Humanity.
THE SEVEN RAYS are an ancient tradition which is increasingly relevant today as the Aquarian Age begins to unfold, because the Rays work together to make for completeness, and Humanity - by becoming aware of the Ray energy working through the soul - should strive for the same ideal.
The philosophy of the 7 rays demonstrates how people of different spiritual inclinations can tread the same spiritual path, united in purpose to help the world without changing their own beliefs.
"My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness." ~ Dalai Lama
THE SEVEN RAYS AND HUMANITY
Human beings are part of the Second lifestream, and are governed by the Second Primary of Love or Consciousness. This shows that basically we are creatures of consciousness, a fact that every great religion and philosophy has preached, and a fundamental spiritual truth.
What we consider to be our normal everyday selves, our personal awareness, is our personality. This can be affected by many various subjective influences, hardly any of which originate from our Higher Self - which only works through the Seven Rays. Therefore the Rays are not applicable here, and the nearest we get to understanding the variety of personality types is through astrological influence, acting as a link between the Rays and the influences our personalities are able to interact with.
It is the Human soul which exists as part of one of the Seven Rays, giving each person the ability to act as a channel for one of the Rays, once a certain amount of soul contact has been established. The soul Ray is responsible for our spiritual evolution by training our personality in the use of the individual Ray energies available to us.
It is the Devas and Elementals who are responsible for our reality. They work together to form the physical existence which we take for granted, but which we Humans are also partly responsible for because it is our awareness of our surroundings which gives these surroundings their objective existence. As Human beings we are machines used by the Absolute for the evolution of all three life-streams, and although ultimately we are conscious Human beings, we are also composed of Devic and Elemental essences which are responsible for our physical bodies and life energies respectively.
The Seven Rays interact with a Human being through the medium of the seven major chakras which form links between each of man's bodies that exist on higher sub-planes above the physical. Our chakras are numerically related to both the Seven Rays and the Seven Planes, so that the lowest, the Base Centre, relates to the Seventh Ray, and the highest, the Crown Centre, relates to the First Ray.
The highest three chakras, the Crown, Head and Throat, work mainly with Elemental, Human and Devic energy respectively, giving us our life-force or will, our consciousness, and our form or physical body. This ties in with our spirit, soul and personality. In real terms, the Third Ray is responsible for our mental faculties, the Second Ray is responsible for our awareness, and the First Ray is responsible for our physical motivation. The lower four chakras work with the four Rays of Attribute through the medium of the four elements which correspond to the lower four Planes. These Planes are formed out of the substance of Elementals ~ which is why they are alluded to as the "elements" ~ and are organised into realities perceivable by Human consciousness through the interaction of the Deva's.
In a Human being, the Earth element governs the solid form, from skeleton to skin; the Water element governs the liquid form, from the water content of the body to the bloodstream; the Air element governs the gaseous form such as the breath; and the Fire element governs the energy form such as the nervous system.
Although each person belongs fundamentally to just one Ray, we also possesses minor qualities of other Rays which help to mold the individual character. This is similar to the situation in astrology, where every individual with a Leo sun sign will also have traits taken from other zodiac signs dependent on planetary placings and his Ascendant. There the similarity ends. It is not possible to ascertain a person's Ray type from a study of the horoscope, because the energies of the Seven Rays which manifest on Earth originate from the realms of the stars far beyond our own solar system, and their energies are scaled down even before they reach the stars which comprise our zodiac signs.
So the Seven Rays, besides being a way of classifying and relating all manner of things both spiritual and mundane, also show that there are seven different approaches to spirituality, as each individual's soul or Higher Self functions on just one of these Rays. Above this is our spiritual essence or Monad, which does not function through the Seven Rays but only through the three Primary Rays.
Blue is the 1st Ray of the spectrum
Its action is to seal, strengthen and protect.
It is essential to seal the auric field at the end of the exercise.
Emerald is the 5th Ray of the spectrum
Its action is precipitation, linking spirit to matter
by realigning the molecular structure to the original source.
Purpose, positivity and leadership are the outstanding qualities of this Ray. It carries great strength and driving force, in fact it is sometimes called the Destroyer. It is the Ray of the ruler and is particularly related to the field of Government. Those who initiate undertakings and are found in positions of power are especially aligned with this type of energy.
This Ray embodies the building and relating qualities and is the blending and inclusive energy that leads to true understanding. Its strength is through persistence and it radiates the spirit of relationship and the attractive quality of Love. On this Ray are found the lovers of Truth and those who seek the path of Wisdom; the Teachers, Healers and Philosophers are the exponents of its magnetic energy.
This energy carries an underlying impulse towards both mental and physical activity. A clear intellect and an ability to plan are its characteristics and a capacity for abstract thinking and intelligent organising are this Ray's especial gifts. Its influence works particularly through economics and industry.
This is the Ray of beauty, art, and creative expression in all forms. It is the energy which, through conflict, brings order out of confusion, harmony out of discord, unity out of diversity. It finds its expression particularly in the cultural field, but it also has great influence upon humanity as a whole, and brings about the achievement through struggle by which we evolve.
This Ray is pre-eminently that of mind, critical ability and research. It is the Ray of the keen and enquiring intellect that demands great accuracy and gives much attention to detail. Within this stream are found those working in all the different branches of science.
Dedication and fanatical altruism are the main impulses of this Ray. It carries a militant one-pointedness and intensity, and further characteristics are devotion and a spirit of service. It is the Ray of the crusader and the idealist and is the great force within Religion.
This is the Ray which links spirit and matter and it works through law, organisation ane ritual. Those under its impulse delight in order and perfection of form. Since it is concerned with the concretising of energy, finance comes within its province, as well as all ceremonial activity.
This gives the general picture of the Rays, but they are many-sided and too complex to be fully portrayed in a short summary. It must be added, however, that their energies can work out as detrimental tendencies as well as valuable qualities. For example, First Ray energy may activate the strong, courageous leader, but may equally well stimulate adversely the ambitious, arrogant dictator. Upon our response to these great forces and our handling of them depends how they manifest.
There are many interesting relationships and correspondences which can be followed up in connection with the Seven Rays. Their influence is felt in all kingdoms of nature and recognition of their conditioning energies gives us new insight into our fellow humans as well as ourselves. Study of them will be at the roots of New Age psychology, for understanding of the Rays that influence us individually will reveal both the bases of our problems and our lines of potentiality, and will help us to meet the ancient Greek, yet ever current, demand—"Know thyself." - M.

TRANSMISSION OF CONSCIOUSNESS
According to esoteric belief human consciousness is transmitted through a complex interconnecting web; the life essence is divine originating from a template held beyond the physical dimension, the perfect blueprint of our unlimited potential. The subtle energy is stepped down through the multi dimensional spheres of the etheric, mental and emotional levels to connect ultimately with the physical body via the endocrine system. At each stage there is a lowering of the vibratory rate culminating at the intellectual level with the mental faculties through the function of the brain which governs behaviour.
Power points or chakras provide the interconnection between the subtle fields and the physical body, their chief function being to maintain balance and flow. Through an understanding of the seven major chakras, their position and function we can monitor our attitudes and behaviour, assessing our spiritual progress.
THE EMERALD ACTIVATION
The wonderful Carol Lamb who founded "The Emerald Activation" has shared her knowldge with the world to assist in man knids evoltion. Below is her creation of "The Emerald Activation" which works on the 5th Ray. Carol has been instrumental in founding spiritual Communities from the early nineties from which Rainbow Light Foundation and The Academy of Spiritual Sciences evolved. Many of her experiences are recounted in Born Remembering a biographical account of the direct communicated guidance which explained the ‘past life’ memories she had experienced from childhood and the pre determined life plan to establish a healing and teaching network based upon revealed wisdom.
PRINCIPLES OF ALIGNMENT
The dictionary definition of alignment is
‘to bring into line’
This may sound like an obvious statement however it reminds us that we are correcting a misalignment. When we align the physical, mental and emotional bodies of the energy field we are bringing the misaligned atoms and molecules of the lower body into line with a higher vibratory rate, i.e. the governing consciousness.
All healing is light transmission. The Emerald Alignment is a simple, safe and effective method of releasing anxiety and aligning the subtle energy of the body through the emerald ray. This is a self-help method which can be taught to all age groups, used in schools, clinics, residential homes or as part of fitness programes. It is important to understand that the alignment exercise is not simply a visualisation technique but rather a transformative process based on scientific principles. The visualisation process is helpful in sustaining focus to enhance effect; however this also initiates an actual metaphysical process, which we may or may not be aware of. While many of us place great emphasis on maintaining physical fitness most remain unaware of the need to stabilise and maintain the subtle energy which is the source of life. The result is that we are running on empty drawing upon limited available resources which are not replenished.
HOW THE EMERALD ALIGNMENT WORKS
Consciousness is transmitted as a spectrum of light comprised of rays or beams radiating from the source which is divine, to the mind as the receiver. We might use the analogy of a computer downloading information in sequence. Science tells us that all light emits a specific frequency observed through technology as a colour spectrum, the rainbow colours familiar to us. The spectrum can also be viewed clairvoyantly as a sequence of colours each of which has a specific resonance and affinity. Specific resonance can therefore be located and identified within the electromagnetic field.
WAYS TO USE THE EMERALD ALIGNMENT
- •Panic attacks can be reduced or eliminated.
- •Alignment prior to sleep will reduce disturbed sleep, help eliminate nightmares and overcome insomnia.
- •Children can be taught the alignment. It can be used effectively for behavioural problems, attachment disorders and to restore sleep patterns.
- •The alignment can be used for those with special needs or learning difficulties and is particularly welcomed by the elderly.
- •The Emerald Alignment can be used to good effect in establishing a peaceful environment in a home, in social settings or in the workplace.
- •Use the alignment to deepen individual meditation or as part of a meditation program.
- •Incorporated into an existing healing practice, the alignment will enhance therapeutic effects.
- •Use the Emerald Alignment before and after dentistry or surgery.
Energy follows thought
When we understand this principle we can use our energy and attention more productively. If we focus upon a specific ray of the colour spectrum we can draw upon the qualities of this energy to strengthen and enhance the auric field, which is where we store energy. By focusing our attention to a higher frequency a positive electromagnetic charge is transmitted via the auric field to and through the crown of the head. The energetic transfer is carried through the spine by the central nervous system to every part of the body, then through the muscles, tissues and organs to the cells. The effect is to realign the energetic core pattern at the cellular level.
