It is inspiring and comforting to know that so many enlightened souls have trodden the solitary path towards Self Mastery, through the route of Sovereignty — including Master Merlin. Masters, whether in or out of form, emblazon us like beacons of light on a hill, encouraging us to do likewise. In my conversations with Merlin, and also while channeling him for others, he regularly advises “keep coming forward” and “don’t worry about a thing.” While these pieces of advice appear to be simple statements, they are not solely intended for a few ears, rather they are for everyone.
There are several things tacitly implied through these two recommendations. By the first, that one can progress in life and must strive to do so, come what may. In other words don’t go backwards, repeating what no longer serves; discard the worn-out shoe, there are other shoes to be had. And by the second, that it is ill advised to spend time in negative contemplation about anything, for more negativity will be drawn to you. Cast negative influences, thinking and feelings aside and focus on the positive for there is a positive outcome awaiting you.
When we find ourselves in the midst of energies, situations, emotional currents and intellectual stimuli of all types beyond our comprehension, experience or liking, it is helpful to remember that all that comes before us is for us. We can always receive guidance, internally and externally, to help us heal, evolve and understand our challenges. I often find myself led to certain teachings or written works that, thanks to the synchronization occurring within the Divine Plan in my life, are sitting on my shelf ready to answer a question that is before me. Divination is always at work if we will but get still for a moment! The answer to life’s mysteries awaits us.
My purpose here is to share my thoughts on the significance of the Sixth and Seventh Rays and how they are affecting us collectively at this time. While the knowledge of the Seven Rays has been expanded to including twelve rays, I am discussing here the Sixth and Seventh.Knowledge about the Universal Seven Rays appeared in the teachings of Theosophy through the writings of Madame Helena P. Blavatsky (August 12, 1841-May 8, 1891) who, with Colonel Henry S. Alcott (August 2, 1832-February 17, 1907), co-founded a research and publishing institute called the Theosophical Society in 1875. Mme. Blavatsky defined Theosophy as “the archaic Wisdom-Religion, the esoteric doctrine once known in every ancient country having claims to civilization” and she considered herself a missionary of this wisdom. It was her mission “to form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or color” in what is now referred to as the New Age Movement. According to Mme. Blavatsky, syncretism, one of the core principles of Theosophy, maintains that the Spiritual Hierarchy is assisting humanity to evolve to greater perfection (to which I can personally attest) and that each religion, has a portion of the truth (as I have espoused in Merlin and The New Camelot). Of course, our active participation is required to bring the New Age Movement forward.
Earlier writings introducing the concept of the rays appeared in the Sixth century BCE in both western and eastern writings. The ancient Vedic literature of India associated the Seven Rays with the Seven Rishis, the great seers who attained God realization. There have been many teachers and writers in the west who have subsequently promulgated and developed the concept of the rays. Among them was Theosophist Charles W. Leadbeater (February 16, 1854-March 1, 1934) who gave us a concept of the principles, consciousness, gifts and energy (or magic) of each ray.
Seventh Ray: As the consciousness of the Seventh Ray becomes more integrated by humanity, it appears that the extreme applications on Earth of the Sixth Ray are being adjusted. It is part of the Divine Plan. The Violet Ray (the Seventh Ray) is, of course, otherwise known as the Violet Flame of Alchemy and Transformation. It is common knowledge that St. Germain, who oversees the Ascension of our planet and humanity, brings to us the dispensation of the Violet Flame, to assist the transmutation of our negative energies. Calling upon such powerful energies is a simple yet potent ritual that will help us to “keep coming forward.” (Click here to see my former article on the Violet Flame) With its daily invocation, a way is paved to enable you “not to worry about a thing” as Merlin so stated. As is always the case with the removal of unwanted matter, after removal it is necessary to instill or create a corrected pattern of light; the New Violet Ray facilitates this process.
“I am a being of New Violet Fire, I am the creativity God desires.”
The Seventh Ray brings, therefore, a call to action, (the motivating force of Aries) to bring to others what you know is within you and to allow the power of the Divine to unfold through you. Creation is balance in motion, beyond duality. It is owning your God-given gifts and talents and expressing them outward. It is recognizing and living from your center of being, your heart. All creation and beauty belongs to God; we are vessels of their manifestation. The beauty of form, thought and action that we witness in others inspires us to create miracles of transformation in our own lives. We affect each other by all that we do. Spending time in Nature naturally brings us to the essence of All Things, to the Oneness of the Universe and assists the realization of our own Divinity. This Self knowledge and experience frees us, liberates us and transforms us. We have long waited for this time and opportunity.Seat of the Soul: I draw attention also to the fact that the Seventh Ray aligns us to the Seat of the Soul at the second chakra. What is the Seat of the Soul and why is this pertinent for us now? The soul is the eternal part of you that goes on in spirit, after you leave your form, body and mindset. It is not your five senses. It is the essence of you and your multi-dimensional consciousness. From a human perspective, the Seat of the Soul represents the potential of you into which you are expanding through your life on Earth and it rests and develops through the power of creation of your second chakra. The Soul expresses itself through your being and is your being; it imbues you with an impetus greater than you.
During the Piscean Age humanity was shown by so many enlightened beings to align the individual will with God’s Will, at the third chakra. As we now integrate both the Sixth and Seventh Rays more fully, we can understand that we are the ones walking out God’s will on Earth. We are the ones we have been waiting for. The overlap of these Rays is bringing us in alignment with our God Self, our Divinity, to birth the Aquarian Age of Universal Christ Consciousness — if we so choose. As we experience more fully the Sixth and Seventh Rays, we are developing our own ideologies and a true sense of devotion of what is right, who we are, how we affect each other and how we can serve ourselves, each other and indeed, the collective. We are learning to be free from fear and limitation and to create from our individual hearts our new shared world of the Golden Age of Light with grace.
