6th Ray of Energy
The Red Ray Represents Wise Service
6th ray – The energy of Devotion or Idealism. This ray endows man with the capacity to see the ideal, the reality behind the form. It endows man with the urge to penetrate behind the veiled and hidden realms. The past 2000 years have produced fantastic gains in the understanding of what were, to early man, “magical” realms. Christ hinted at this when he said “Greater things than I have done ye shall do.” Einstein also touched upon this urge to penetrate beyond the outer realms in his statement, “The most beautiful and deepest experience a man can have is the sense of the mysterious. It is the underlying principle of religion as well as all serious endeavor in art and science.”
Higher Expression: Christianity and diversified religions.
Lower Expression: Churches and organized religions.
The devotion of the 6th Ray is perhaps best expressed by Jesus, the 6th Ray Master: “Whosoever would find his life must lose it for my sake.”
Ray 6 servers over the past 2000 years have trained humanity to recognize ideals, which are blue prints of ideas, by training world thinkers to desire the good, the true, and the beautiful. Some people can be galvanized by an idea; others reached more easily by an ideal.
Dedication and fanatical altruism are the main impulses of this Ray. It carries a militant one-pointedness and intensity, and further characteristics are devotion and a spirit of service. It is the Ray of the crusader and the idealist and is the great force within Religion.
Angels of the red color light ray, led by Archangel Uriel, can help you experience more wise service in your life.
The red angel light ray represents wise service. Angels, who express their love for God by serving on the missions God gives them, encourage people to express their love for God through service as well. 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.
People sometimes ask for Uriel’s help to: seek God’s wisdom before making decisions, come up with fresh creative for how to serve people in need, learn new information, solve problems, resolve conflicts, let go of destructive emotions such as anxiety and anger that can prevent them from discerning wisdom, and recognize dangerous situations.
Crystal – Some of the different crystal gemstones associated with the red angel light ray are: amber, fire opal, malachite, and basalt. Some people believe that the energy in these crystals can help people by encouraging them, helping them think more clearly, and giving them confidence.
Chakra – The red angel light ray corresponds to the solar plexus chakra, which is located in the abdomen on the human body. Some people say that the spiritual energy from angels that flows into the body through the solar plexus chakra may help them physically (such as by helping to treat conditions of the stomach, liver, kidneys, and colon), mentally (such as by helping people make decisions and become more confident), and spiritually (such as by helping people discover how to use their God-given talents to fulfill God’s purposes for their lives and make the world a better place).
Day – The red angel light ray radiates most powerfully on Friday, some people believe, so they consider Friday to be the best day of the week to pray especially about situations that the red ray encompasses.
Life Situations in the Red Ray

God may send archangel Uriel and the other red ray angels to give you the wisdom you need to discern which specific people God wants you to serve, and at what time and in which ways God wants you to help them.
You can pray for help from red ray angels to figure out which of the many pressing needs you notice are the best ones for you to focus on, and why.
Praying in the red ray may also help you develop the compassion you need to care about other people’s needs the way God wants you to care, the courage you need to take the risks necessary to serve them as God leads you, and the strength you need to commit and devote yourself wholeheartedly to your service work until each project is complete.
The 6th ray tends to be large and to run to fat. They have a rather soft, flabby appearance with broad faces. They seem to be rather rare in Europe but are common in the USA.
The manner in which this is mentally formulated is not the essence of the sixth ray outlook. It is feeling, not logic, which directs the statement, “There is Goodness here.” So there is a great deal of zest and energy to be seen on this ray. This enthusiasm is not to be confused with will power. It is a form of love of “the goods,” whether persons or things, so it often presents a display of energy in ways planned or directed by a leader, devotion to a leader, typically one who is regarded as the agent of the greatest of all leaders, God. Thus we have the good soldier as well as the devotee on this ray, “waiting the word of the Master,” and that generally “in the midst of the fight.” A defect arises when the Leader in a movement becomes so magnified that the devotee abases himself and stultifies his own small powers by contrast, feeling that it would be a presumption and indeed sometimes a sacrilege, for him to think himself to be of the same clay and to have the same destiny as the Leader. Undesirable and rather cunning persons sometimes exploit this weak tendency of the devotee, encourage it and obtain much service for their schemes. All this is not against true devotion, the meaning of which comes easily to be seen, with a little thought. Suppose one approaches a devotee—a Christian devotee, to take a precise example—and asks, “Would you feel as you do to Jesus if he had taught cruelty, selfishness and sensuality?” The answer is invariably: “No, most certainly not. But, then, he would not have been Jesus.” Then one puts the second question, “Whom, then, are you really following? Is it not really your own nature, yourself?” The devotee may be a little confused when he first faces this fact that really he is following himself, but all becomes clear when we see that what is happening is that the little Christ is recognizing the greater Christ by similarity of nature, and is benefiting by the propinquity, which arouses a greater degree and quality of living and consciousness. This kind of devotion, not blind, but intelligent, recognizes the value of the world of “goods.” “Everything that is received is a gift.” Even to see a cat or a dog or a deer or any animal, with the right feeling in the seeing, is to imbibe some of its “virtue” by 74 the operation of the universal brotherhood of life. “Love is God.” To see a woman bringing water from the well is very auspicious, say the Hindus. To see the new moon through the trees, to see a picture or a statue, to see houses and streets, to see a person in the right spirit is heavenly rejoicing and benefit beyond compute. Let that slave, the working mind, stand aside, and bow itself down, when this darshana comes, as it does more and more to the devotee who has the virtues of his ray unspoiled by too much deficiency of intelligence and the will, which would make him either injuriously fanatical or else inert—the two “faults” of this type, the crusader and the hermit. The fruits of devotion are what we receive by love, not what we make by thought and hands. Goodness is all grace; it is all “from above.” It is no transaction, but a sacrament, for which all men are priests. It is all “out of the heart of Nature.”
If your Sun Sign or Ascendant is Virgo, Sagittarius, or Pisces, you are functioning on the 6th Ray. “The Sixth has been the primary Ray of the Piscean Age—[the Age now ending]…. The religious creeds and ideals connected to martyrdom are still influential wherever the Sixth Ray energy predominates…. Terrorism, suicide, and all other urges for self-annihilation based on religious and/or philosophical idealism are very much under the influence of the Sixth Ray…. One finds in its expression those devotional qualities that keep families together, instill great and small philanthropic gestures, and denote such saintly people as Mother Teresa and St. Francis of Assisi…. The Sixth Ray is also the inspiring force of people for whom the principles of Love, Goodness, Purity of Heart, and Selflessness are living energies and form their way of life.
