What is Rayology?

Rayology is the study of the Seven Rays. When explored from the spiritual perspective, Rayology gives us a better understanding of ourselves and how we can manifest our purpose in the world.

This deeper understanding extends beyond ourselves; helping us observe the world as an expression of the Seven Rays. Through this lens we see and value the differences that others bring into the world a s they express their ray energies.

The Seven Rays

(also known as the Seven Soul Types)

Religious traditions all over the world and throughout human evolution have described the energy behind creation by many different names. While some traditions refer to the force of creation as God, others refer to it as Allah, Brahman, Krishna, YHWH, or simply, the One Life. There are many other names as well, but whatever name we use for this divine creative expression into form, its ultimate source is the same.

Creation is the One Life seeking to express itself through form through the interaction of seven great streams of energy.

These seven energy streams, or rays, are the most fundamental qualities within all of cosmos. The energies of these rays also result in the manifestation of seven distinct soul types.

As part of the spiritual journey, we each begin to seek and awaken consciously. We experience our connection to the energy of the divine within us, and through that, we connect to our higher spiritual identity.

It is our most profound purpose as human beings to manifest our spiritual blueprint or archetype. We become conscious of our unique pattern of energies and strive to live true to that pattern. As a result, we grow into who and what we already are in essence.

Our greatest joy and our most significant spiritual responsibility are to become who we are, to fully express our spiritual pattern and identity. The science of Rayology is a tool to help us realize this.
