Today we pick up our exploration of the topics of the Ascended Masters of the Wisdom, how we can come to attune to the frequencies of Higher Awareness, and find those who are members of our true “Community.” Of prime importance, keep in mind that we align with some energies more easily than with others as we move through the chapters of life. This shows the nature of who we naturally relate to, and what truths we believe in. Today we’ll go into the nature of those frequencies of contact.
It’s been many years since I first printed some of this material. Of course I’ve rewritten it for readability and coherency, as well as elaborated on some things not covered in the original 2007 article. Since we are discussing the nature of contacting Higher Awareness and how to find relatedness with like-minded Souls, it’s crucial to understand the nature of the various energies of our field of Life on Earth.
We are taught there are 7 types of energy on Earth, and that all humans are of and working with various blends of these 7 types of energy. These 7 distinct “frequency harmonics” describe the greater energy field encompassing all Paths and all experiences.
They are called the 7 Rays, and describe the 7-fold nature of our reality. They are the 7 pure energies that pervade our system of existence, and they infuse everything from our personalities to our Spiritual Disciplines to our friends and professions.
These 7 Rays are 7 “bandwidths” that describe all forms and formless forms. They indicate the nature of what IS, each describing a unique and interrelated energy with all the other Ray energies.
While each Ray describes a specific and distinct energy, they all work with each other in all human lives at various points. These "Rays" can be seen in every aspect of our lives and affairs, and by knowing them we can become more comfortable with who we are, who we're not, and how to use the primary energies conditioning our existence.
By understanding these 7 energies we learn what we are good at, as well as what we’re working on. By contemplating how these energies are everywhere and we're all using some combination of them all the time we can understand the "departments of labor and skill" in our Reality. That helps us become better in every way.
Astrology helps us know the timing on events and reasons why things happen when they do. However, it is important to investigate the nature of our reality from other angles of observation to find what energy tools we have to master in order to deal with our experiences effectively. This includes how these are most naturally applied, and how to confirm our progress or note when we need a change in tools or methods.
I was exposed to the Rays first through the Theosophical literature and then learned much more about them from the Alice A. Bailey teachings attributed to the Tibetan Master D.K. (known by other names through many incarnations). I have studied and observed them in operation for many years, and find these 7 energies pervade our world and our Solar system, manifesting in many ways.
They can be applied in psychology, art, and many areas of "natural" science. They of course have their correspondences with the 7 colors, 7 tones of the scale, 7 planes of consciousness, the 7 senses, the 7 directions, the 7 Ages of Humanity, the 7 traditional schools of Yoga, and probably even the 7 holes in our heads! ;-)
In part 2 we’ll take a look at each of the 7 Rays and their qualities. I’ll also give examples of how they show us why our personalities have qualities that have been shaped by various lessons over time, and how these 7 Ray energies can be consciously used to find strengths and overcome weaknesses. When we’re done with these articles you should be able to value why you are as you are, and not get hung up on what you’re not.
