When white light is projected through a prism it divides itself into the seven colors of the visible spectrum. Each color is unique unto itself, and each affects us a bit differently. By analogy, when we examine world religions we also see that light is used as a symbol for divinity—the Light of God. And, just as white light divides itself into seven colors, so too does the Light of God express itself in seven qualities. In the ancient Esoteric Philosophy, these divisions of divine light are referred to as the Seven Rays, and every human soul is found upon one of them.
Each of the seven great rays of creation represents a particular learning lesson for our embodiment on the Earth. We have now entered an accelerated phase of our evolution in which it will be important for each of us to integrate the aspects of all seven great rays.
