What Is the Eighth Ray? What Is Its Purpose in the Evolution of Humanity and the Earth?
The influence of the rays
The rays are associated with types of expressions of consciousness. The rays are the builders of form and there is a correlation between the rays and the evolution of the human organism and consciousness.
Each holistic aspect of a person’s makeup is governed by a ray and the rays governing these aspects of the holistic self are usually different. For example, a person’s physical body may be governed by the seventh ray, their emotional body by the third ray, the lower mental body by the fifth ray and the egoic or soul body by the sixth ray.
We are not all governed by the same rays. The soul ray is the ray for the soul family or soul group a person is a member of and the soul tends to remain on that ray for a very long period of time.
The soul of each human is expressive of, aligned to and allied with one of the eight rays and through that particular influential quality the destiny of that human is defined.
Rays in the Aquarian Age
We are currently leaving one world age (Piscean Age) and entering another (Aquarian Age). Each world age is also primarily conditioned by a specific ray. For example, the Piscean Age, which is now ending, was conditioned by the sixth ray, the ray of devotion and idealism. During the 2,000 year Piscean Age, there was a predominance of souls aligned with the sixth ray incarnating during that period.
The Aquarian Age is very unique in that there are two rays influencing its unfoldment and nature. This is particularly due to the spiritual complexity of this age. These ray influences are the Seventh Ray of Ceremonial Order and the Eighth Ray of Co-Creation and Ritual. It is said that the ray master of the Seventh Ray described himself as “a seventh ray master working for an eighth ray objective”, which is to bring heaven to earth.
Seventh and Eighth Rays
While living in the Aquarian Age you can be influenced by both rays and be working with both the seventh and eighth rays – they are uniquely synergistic and complementary.
Many souls who are aligned with the Seventh Ray will be seeking to evolve by working at a physical level to restore a new physical matrix or order in the world.
Those working with the Eighth Ray are working magically and metaphysically with the power of light and the controlled use of vibration to co-create a new way of living and being on the planet through the power of Eighth Ray magic and ritual.
Put very simply, any person who has heard the call to work with eighth ray ritual magic will be aligned with and allied to both the Seventh and Eighth Rays which are the conditioning agents of force of the Aquarian Age.
All souls have a resonance with the Eighth Ray
All souls on the planet at this time have a resonance with the Eighth Ray, the ray of the Goddess, the ray of relationship, the ray of co-creation as its presence sends out a call that is an invitation to create a better world. Some will hear this call, and act on it, others will not.
It is important to remember that the rays influence all of creation. While we are primarily operating and undertaking our spiritual objectives through the influence of one or more rays, there is an ongoing general advancement with the other rays as well.
