4th Ray of Energy
The White Ray Represents Purity, Harmony, and Holiness
4th ray – The energy of Harmony through Conflict. This ray produces beauty and works towards the harmonising of effects. Essentially, it is the refiner, the producer of perfection within the form so that the objective world becomes a true house of Light.
Higher Expression: Masonry, based on formation of hierarchy, and rules for admittance.
Lower Expression: Architectural construction. Modern city planning.
This summarizes the essential harmony that in time prevails when conflict has exhausted itself.
This is the Ray of beauty, art, and creative expression in all forms. It is the energy which, through conflict, brings order out of confusion, harmony out of discord, unity out of diversity. It finds its expression particularly in the cultural field, but it also has great influence upon humanity as a whole, and brings about the achievement through struggle by which we evolve.
Ray 4 – Few 4th ray souls are in incarnation, but many 4th ray personalities are. Their major task is to harmonize the new ideas with the old, so that there can be no dangerous gap or break. They bring about a “righteous compromise”, and adapt the new and the old so that the true pattern is preserved. They participate in the bridging process, for they are the true intuitive.
Angels of the white color light ray, led by Archangel Gabriel, can help you experience greater purity, harmony, and holiness in your life.
The white angel light ray represents the purity and harmony that come from holiness. This ray is part of the metaphysical system of angel colors based on seven different light rays: blue, yellow, pink, white, green, red, and purple. Some people believe that the light waves for the seven angel colors vibrate at different electromagnetic in the universe, attracting the angels that have similar kinds of energy. Others believe that the colors are just fun ways of symbolizing the different types of missions that God sends angels on to help people. By thinking of angels who specialize in different types of work according to colors, people can focus their prayers according to what type of help they’re seeking from God and his angels.
Archangel – Gabriel, the archangel of revelation, is in charge of the white angel light ray. People sometimes ask for Gabriel’s help to: understand the messages that God is communicating to them so they can grow in holiness, clear away confusion and achieve the wisdom they need to make decisions, obtain the confidence they need to act on those decisions, communicate effectively to other people, and raise children well.
Crystals – Some of the different crystal gemstones associated with the white angel light ray are: ruby, onyx, red garnet, jasper, and obsidian. Some people believe that the energy in these crystals can help people feel more confidence and courage, stand up for their convictions, and change negative attitudes and behaviors to positive ones.
Chakra – The white angel light ray corresponds to the root chakra, which is located at the base of the spine on the human body. Some people say that the spiritual energy from angels that flows into the body through the root chakra may help them physically (such as by helping them treat back conditions, nerve pain, and immune system conditions), mentally (such as by helping them develop more self-esteem and feel more secure in their relationships with other people), and spiritually (such as by helping them break free of materialism so they can shift their attention away from temporary things and toward holiness that has eternal value).
Day – The white angel light ray radiates most powerfully on Wednesday, some people believe, so they consider Wednesday to be the best day of the week to pray especially about situations that the white ray encompasses.
Life Situations in the White Ray
When praying in the white ray, you can ask God to send archangel Gabriel and the angels who work with him to help you learn more about the kind of person God wants you to become, and to inspire and motivate you to take the steps you need to take to grow into that person.
You can confess and repent of your sins, and then receive God’s forgiveness and the strength you need to make better decisions going forward with your life.
God may send archangel Gabriel and the other white ray angels to help you purify your life of negative attitudes (such as arrogance or shame) or unhealthy habits (such as spending too much money and getting into debt or gossiping about others) that are contaminating your soul and slowing down your spiritual growth. If you’re struggling with an addiction of some kind (such as to pornography or alcohol, you can ask God to send white ray angels to help you break free of your addiction.
Praying in the white ray may also help you let go of your insecurities and develop more confidence, as you invite God to use white ray angels to show you how much God loves you, and what your life looks like from God’s perspective. God may use white ray angels to deliver fresh doses of hope to you.
White ray angels may also come on missions from God to help you develop the communication skills you need to speak, write, and listen successfully. That will increase the chances of you getting your messages across well to the people you want to reach (from your personal relationships to your work on the job) and also help you better understand what people are trying to communicate to you.
If you’re working on an artistic project, white ray angels may inspire you to create something beautiful that resonates in people’s souls when they see it.
If you’re trying to become a better parent, white ray angels may deliver the wisdom and strength that God wants you to have to raise your children well.
The 4th ray seems to have some of the characteristics of both the 2nd and 3rd ray types. For example, Charlie Chaplin had a 4th ray physical body.
The predominance of the fourth principle marks the man of the fourth ray. His quality is harmony. He cannot keep the internal worlds and the external worlds apart in his life. If he has an idea, it is unsatisfying until he has given it practical expression; if he has work to do in the world, he is unhappy about it unless he can make it express an idea or an ideal. Among men he does not represent the inner especially (as do the governor, the philanthropist and the philosopher) nor the outer especially (as do the scientist, the devotee and the artist). He exhibits the principle of māyā, which I have already described as a special expression of Shiva, bringing Vishnu and Brahmā into harmony. No greater reality could there be on earth, and yet it is an illusion, because it is not the very life of Shiva Himself, the true ānanda. His activity is not directed by material interests, or by mind interests. In a sense, the first three rays as a set and the last three as a set constitute a pair of opposites, since the first three are mainly introvert and the last three extrovert. It should be noted that governorship and statesmanship are introvert because they imply an appreciation of the sense of freedom and an attempt to bring about conditions which will assure to all persons the freedom to enjoy the use and development of their own faculties, letting them have the enjoyment of finding themselves. Philanthropy, at its best in neighborliness and brotherliness, is also introvert because it implies an appreciation of associated life, the feeling of affection, and knows that gifts and exchanges are of little importance compared with the enjoyment of the feeling of companionship contained in proper giving and receiving, and that love in a cottage is better than the greatest wealth without it. People realize this truth to some extent in wartime, when the bombs start falling, and they find affection for their former local rivals and enemies. Thirdly, the introverted nature of the philosopher needs little comment. In contrast with these is the other set of three, the scientist, devotee and artist being the extroverts who can appreciate the things of the world, and ultimately find in them the gateways to the infinite. It is between these two that the fourth type lies. They find their happiness in the perfection of the relationship between the two. While acknowledging this pivotal character of the fourth ray, one does not wish it to be thought that the people of other rays must sooner or later come to this. This ray is at a disadvantage as compared with others, as it is harder for its people to obtain intensity of consciousness which in the other six rays goes with their greater specialization, so that they sometimes seem to show more indifference to material exactitude, precision, truth, goodness and beauty, and sometimes more indifference to dignity, companionless and principles than people of the other rays, but at an advantage in avoiding the defects of specialization. In the perfection of each ray there is a purification resulting in a shānti, a peace, in which one becomes aware of the real self. In the earlier stages of his development the man of the fourth ray will show variability and moodiness, sometimes leaning towards the three types of self-reliance (the first three rays), and sometimes towards the three types of devotion (the last three rays), but he will never get quite away from his balanced position, showing the simultaneous presence of both sides of human nature. This causes him much unhappiness; for in the work that he has to do in the world he feels the need of expressing an ideal; and on the other hand any of the ideals to which he may be attracted tend to sear and burn his soul unless he can express them. He is thus the man of the uncomfortable conscience, until he reaches that blessed state of life in which his inner and outer parts have been brought into constant working harmony, in which the laws of outer and inner growth, karma and dharma, have blended into one. But when they are blended, there is for him the nearest thing to real happiness that is possible on earth: the interpretation of the inner to the outer and of the outer to the inner is full and constant, and sometimes the spirit of prophecy flashes out into expression. The life and religion of old Egypt seems to have had a strong influence of this ray. The things of that land were representative of life, and the representations of life were very “thingies” in form. Take, for example, the architecture of the Egyptians, with its leaning lines and rounded and bellying pillars, and its constant subjection to animal and vegetable forms—not ornamentation with those forms. On the other hand, the sculpture and drawing of human figures and other living beings were in a more mathematical form than has been seen elsewhere.
If your Sun Sign or Ascendant is Taurus, Scorpio, or Sagittarius, you are functioning on the 4tf ray. “The purpose of the Fourth Ray is to be an agent of balance. The Fourth Ray leads to that type of discrimination required for the life of the Soul and the way of service. It is thus the Ray of trial and error, so that we may move from the unreal to the real. The Fourth Ray is the energy behind what we may call ‘Divine Discontent’…. As the Ray of beauty and art, the Fourth Ray is also essentially the refiner—the urge for an ever-more-perfect representation of the Will of God in the many forms of Its expression…. The Fourth is the Ray of struggle, and those people who are especially connected to it will find a very special duality appearing in their lives…. As the Ray of the artist, the Fourth is especially connected to color. People who are closely associated with this Ray may find themselves with tremendous gifts.
Soul Level: The ‘Divine Artist’—one who seeks to raise humanity’s consciousness through the realization of the beauty and harmony existing in nature and in the world of forms; the mediator between heaven and earth, God and man; the Priest?
Personality Level: Ray of the mediator, interpreter, artist, and those healers whose treatments involve the harmonizing and balancing of the body’s energies and polarities—acupuncture certain techniques of massage, color therapy.
Positive Traits: Strong sense of equilibrium and symmetry; a poetic sensibility, especially about nature; imaginative and creative in the formation of one’s life-style; can sustain struggle and conflict until desired aims are achieved.
Character Difficulties: Indolence, self-indulgence; may be overly passionate; may initiate conflicts unnecessarily; restlessness and a tendency to depression when goals cannot be accomplished. (Since the Fourth is very much a blend of Rays One & Two, when the energy of the First Ray of Will/Power is not in balance with the Second Ray, the resulting lack of direction for the expression of Will is clearly marked. This demonstrates as a poorly focused sense of personal orientation to life and a resultant lack of willpower.)
To Be Cultivated: Serenity, emotional balance, confidence, self-control, truth, clarity of purpose.
