Thank you very much for this opportunity to share some of the teachings on the seven rays from the books of Alice Bailey. The concept of the seven rays was introduced by H. Blavatsky and later developed by Ernest Wood. Alice Bailey then developed the teaching considerably in a number of her books, especially A Treatise on the Seven Rays. We might begin by asking, Why seven rays?

Who am I? Strangely, this powerful question is one that seems difficult to fully answer. It is a question that is asked by each of us consciously or unconsciously every day of our lives. Indeed, it is not an exaggeration to say that all aspects of life are arenas wherein we seek answers to this question. Though sometimes difficult to recognize, our personal relationships, the career path we follow and the beliefs we hold are all unconscious attempts at answering this perplexing question. When looked at from a spiritual perspective, it is the search for the soul that is our quest. But how do we recognize the soul within?
The Seven Rays is a concept related to the Septenary Principle of manifestation of the universe. In The Secret Doctrine , the seven rays refer to the seven Primordial beings that appear on the highest plane of manifestation, in whom are the seeds for everything in the universe.

Blavatsky quotes a "verse from the Esoteric volumes" as follows:. In her writings Mme. Each one of these Rays can be identified with one of the seven prismatic colors.
