Alice Bailey

One of the tools which can help us give a language and concepts to the Feminine is the theory of Ray Energies, as laid out in the Alice Bailey teachings.*

As some of you probably know, she was a woman who lived in the early part of the 20th Century (1880–1949). It was her job to give out some new teachings that would help us move into the Aquarian Age.

One thing she says is that there are 7 rays, or qualities of energy, which express through and in life and all people. They are:


The first three rays are the same as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Bible. Each person has a personality ray, a soul ray and a monadic (spirit) ray. The monadic ray is the quality of pure spirit expressing in time and space. This theory is very useful for anyone trying to support the Feminine, for it gives us an up-to-date model for the truth of the Feminine as Pure Spirit. Each person’s monadic or spirit ray can be either 1, 2 or 3. Thus Spirit is not only Father, but also Son (or Daughter) and Holy Spirit (Mother). The Feminine is not only matter and the energy behind matter but also pure Spirit. The Feminine is both immanent and transcendent.
