The teaching on the seven rays can enable all true servers to work with greater skill and effectiveness in their chosen field of activity. As Alice Bailey wrote, a study of the rays will mean that “...we shall have a practical method of analysis whereby we can arrive at a right understanding of ourselves as ensouling entities, and at a wiser comprehension of our fellow men We can then deal more intelligently with ourselves, with our children and with our friends and associates. We shall find ourselves able to co-operate more wisely with the Plan as it is seeking expression at any particular time”.

The Lords of the Seven Rays invites one to journey to their etheric retreat in order to learn from past lives. Application of the violet flame to past life memories can adjust them until balance is restored. (Philosophy/Metaphysics)
The purpose of this book is to help you discover the Rays of Life that tinge your different bodies (soul - personality - mental - emotional and physical) that you use to express the divine during your current incarnation. This book is articulated around several questionnaires which aim to make you aware of your strengths and weaknesses through the recognition of the Rays which condition the different strata of your being.

The physical Sun is a mirror of Spiritual Fire. The Seven Rays of the Spiritual Sun are Luminous Sons, from which will emanate all other luminous and non-luminous lives. They are the “fiery tongues” representing the potency of formative creation inherent Logos. The First Solar Ray is the most important: It is Voice of the Silence. It is potentially in everyman’s heart. Space and Time are One and Nameless, the incognisable That, which can be sensed only through its Rays. A bright star dropped from the Heart of Eternity, a beacon of hope on whose Seven Rays hang Seven Worlds of Being. Seven Wise Ones, the Dhyani-Chohans of the Secret Doctrine, fashion seven beams of light falling on paths leading to wisdom. Seven Lights, whose reflections are the human immortal monads, each in charge of seven distinct groups of humanity. They all proceed from the First Logos, and from thence in innumerable series of Hierarchies. Thus the Hierarchy of Compassion lights up the torch of Truth. The Seven Rays or Divine Hierarchies are symbolised as concentric circles of prismatic colours in their natural order. Heptactys stands for the Seven Rishis of the Second Ray, the informing souls of the Seven Stars of the Great Bear and their shaktis symbolised by Pleiades or Atlantis’ Seven Root-Races. The Seven Rays and their shaktis vibrate everywhere. They are personified as Motion, Sound, Heat, Light, Cohesion, Electric Fluid, and Nerve Force. When the hour of the Solar Pralaya strikes, the Eternal Avyaya (First Logos) will enter into the Seven Rays of the Sun and drink up all the waters of the Universe. Thus fed, the Seven Rays will expand to Seven Suns whose radiance will glow above, below, and on every side, and will set the World on fire.
This book covers a broad variety of perspectives in Esoteric Astrology (EA), the emerging astrology of the Seven Rays in this Aquarian cycle. From an in depth introduction to EA and the search for soul purpose, to practical astronomy, to the most abstract and arcane cosmologies; there is also an extensive astro-biography which applies many new principles of interpretation. The Science of Initiation is a key subject, as is an astrological consideration of the chakras and their stage of unfoldment in a particular life. For beginners or advanced students, there is a wealth of wisdom contained here that will provide a good reference book for years to come.Will be replaced by smaller format with new ISBN in 2012.
Esoteric Psychology - The Seven Rays: The knowledge of the Seven Rays provided by this book will prove of immense value to all who seek to understand human nature, and to achieve enhanced self awareness and integration of personality, in themselves and others. This masterly written and illustrated manual is an absolutely essential starting and reference work for all those who finally respond in this lifetime to their Purpose and Inner Voice! This book emphasises that all is energy and that Man is an energy unit affected from both without and within. It demonstrates that Ray Psychology is essentially practical and shows how the qualities of these energies may be understood and embraced in human behaviour and today's language. It is plain that psychology will play an ever increasing role in the development of new age consciousness. Already today millions of people, who would be regarded as laymen, practise their own psychology in everyday life. This tendency has been boosted by the general interest in astrology. A glimpse into the future will show that the new psychology will be based on many emerging astrological factors. Esoteric psychology takes into account not only hereditary and environment, but draws also upon that massive third factor which is the psychic and spiritual nature of Mankind. The effect of karma, the influence of previous lives, etc., are major contributions to the behaviour of those who seek to tread the path towards spiritual enlightenment. Esoteric Psychology is based on two major precepts. Firstly, there is a cosmic force conveying seven streams of energy into our solar system that affect the nature, behaviour and evolution of all forms within the ring-pass-not of this system. These streams are termed the Seven Rays. Secondly, spiritual qualities emerging from the immortal component of Man's structure affect his behaviour and modify the contributing factors of his hereditary equipment and the environment into which it is thrust.
The Seven Rays - Keys to the Mysteries: The Seven Rays form one of the keys to the mysteries to be employed in this, the Age of Aquarius, which is now upon us. This key is one of psychology; it takes into account not only the factors of genetics and personality, but also the factor of the Soul. Dr. Baker has drawn on the wisdom and expertise of H. P. Blavatsky and Alice Bailey to fashion this effective key to unlock the subjective qualities of the personality. The Seven Rays embrace the whole of our known universe; they are the builders of form. That form in humanity applies not only to your physical body structures, but also to your emotional and mental natures. The psychology of the Seven Rays is thus an ideal mechanism for esoteric students in counselling their subjects in what we now term the Ray Analysis.
2013 Reprint of 1950 Third Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Volume One Only. The books of Alice A. Bailey, written in cooperation with a Tibetan teacher between 1919 and 1949, constitute a continuation of the Ageless Wisdom--a body of esoteric teaching handed down from ancient times in a form which is always suitable to each period. Intended to precede and condition the coming era, the Alice A. Bailey writings offer an unparalleled spiritual approach to such subjects as the teaching on Shamballa and the Path of spiritual evolution; the spiritual Hierarchy; the new discipleship and training in meditation as a form of service; the teaching on the seven rays and the new psychology of the soul; the teaching on esoteric astrology; and the new world religion, which emphasizes the common thread of truth linking all the major world faiths. Five volumes have been written under the overall title of "A Treatise on the Seven Rays." This sequence of books is based on the fact, the nature and the quality of the seven basic streams of energy pervading our solar system, our planet and all that lives and moves within its orbit. Of the specialized subjects presented in these books, two volumes are concerned with esoteric psychology - the first in relation to basic energy patterns and structures; the second particularly applied to the soul and the personality of man and to the working out of the Plan for humanity. Psychology is defined in Webster's Dictionary as "the science of mind," at one time considered a branch of metaphysics. Today we are more inclined to include all the conditioning subjective factors as psychological in nature - mental and emotional impulses and soul contact, to whatever degree it exists. These subjective influences constitute the whole psychological background to a man's attitudes and behaviour, and create the faculty of spiritual response. The "psyche" is, after all, the human soul, the centre of consciousness. Esoteric psychology begins with a consideration of the human being as a soul, manifesting in the form of a personality, consisting of mental, emotional and etheric/physical substance, and more or less in contact and control, depending on the stage of evolution in the personality consciousness. From the point of view of esoteric psychology, evolution is the evolution of consciousness, by which the imbedded fragment of the soul within the personality progressively identifies its spiritual source and becomes at-one with it. The seven differentiated streams of ray energy play a significant role in this evolutionary process. A blend of five energies in a human being determine his goals, his problems, his available qualities and energy resources, and the correct method by which - according to his dominant ray influence - he may unfold his consciousness and make spiritual progress. In this volume of Esoteric Psychology many of these distinctive ray qualities and methods are given as quotations, or interpretations, of "The Old Commentary" put into poetic and symbolic words. The seven rays are shown as the Seven Creative Builders, each one imbued with purpose and power, functioning together as a synthesis in occult obedience to the purposes of our Solar Logos. Such a detailed and comprehensive study of the ray energies influencing our planetary life and all kingdoms in nature is of inestimable value to the aspirant consciously preparing himself to become of planetary service as he learns to serve and to unite with his fellowmen.
