One colour that keeps popping up connected to Loki is purple. He seems to be fond of both purple and gold – He likes these tiny purple flower that cover the forest floors in spring – and in my meditations, purple is a colour that spontaneously appears when He is around. Loki explained it as a colour of transformation, of Divine Compassion and Light that illumines ignorance. And after a little research I discovered some interesting facts, I thought worth sharing.
Within the concept of the Seven Rays of Divine Manifestation the soul of each human being is connected to one of these rays and thus expressing the rays qualities.
The seven rays relate to the seven colours of the rainbow, or white light broken down into the seven colours – and the colour of the seventh ray is violet.
The violet Ray carries along the Divine qualities of love, mercy, compassion, spiritual transfiguration and transformation, and freedom.
The seventh ray is the one of transmutation and manifestation of the Divine in the physical (on earth), thus it is the ray of magic and shamanism and its transcendence into something Higher and Deeper. It initiates a new order.
The Svadhistana Chakra is the seat of the seventh rays energy and there it manifests (in its lower form) as sexual love and in its higher form it represents selfless love.
It is also the energy that lets our individual consciousness become part of the collective consciousness (like a drop joining the ocean, yet retaining the individuality of the drop). The downside of this is “trying to fit in”, or “wanting to be different” and being “at the edge of society” – which are all Loki traits – yet He is the One who helps us to become part of the Whole, while retaining our own (authentic) individuality.
During the present stage of transformation, earth is passing from the 6th Ray Age (Piscean) into the 7th Ray Age (Aquarian), an age prescribed by many cultures as the age of consciousness, the manifestation of Divine Conscioiusness in physical matter.
“It is the working of the Seventh Ray which aids in the fusion of the Soul and the personality, and the resulting reorientation of an individual’s life purpose and direction. It is this process of Soul infusion that can be symbolically rendered by the Seventh Ray alchemist as the process of changing lead into gold. The hope for the Aquarian Age, the Age of the Seventh Ray, is for such a ‘golden’ collective transformation and reorientation to take place for humanity.” Alan Oken’sSoul-Centered Astrology: A Key To Your Expanding Self
This ray enables us to stay grounded, while retaining a strong connection to the Higher Worlds and manifesting Higher Truths through creative processes, especially spoken or written words. An ancient name for the seventh ray is The Keeper of the Magical Word.
“Ray 7 – The Ray of Ceremonial Order and Magic
The Seventh Ray is best known for bringing order out of chaos. Its purpose is to provide the energy needed to translate spiritual ideas into tangible realities. Through its influence the Manifestation of Divinity is made possible. This ray influences humanity to outwardly create according to divine intention. An individual with a Seventh Ray Soul is the true magician. He or she is naturally able create positive change in the world. This is achieved through the power of the spoken or written word, and the ability to build outer forms that can anchor profound spiritual principles. Such a person understands the magical power of speech as an instrument for creating new forms through which divinity can be express. It is therefore not surprising that the ancient name for this ray is The Keeper of the Magical Word.”
Fading now is the often impulsive Sixth Ray of Christianity as the Seventh ray gradually begins to influence mankind – an influence we are told can be traced back to the lost continent of Atlantic. Under this heavy physical ray, the battle to join spirit with matter is waged, hence it is a sensual ray, the one attached to sex and procreation. It is largely responsible for the mass-meditation movement and for man becoming more service minded. Through human will combined with divine grace regeneration is achieved. Simply the Seventh Ray provides and facilitates for the coming Age.
The seventh Ray of light is the most tangible and most expressive of all seven light Rays and Flames in the visible world. It reflects the quality and relationship that exist between spirit and matter, and due to these properties the seventh violet Ray is sometimes called ceremonial or magical Ray, a Ray of rhythm, ritual, law and order, organization and group consciousness. The rhythm of the violet Ray builds, integrates, manifests, and circulates in our bodies.
I found these findings rather interesting as in my opinion Loki is so deeply connected to human beings and His urge is to transform us, illumine us and make us realise our innermost Divinity. Some believe Loki to be Logi (in mythological texts one of the Trinity) who gave life force (complexion, blood) to human beings, Loki as well as the Seventh Ray is connected to the Svadhistana or Sacral Chakra, the seat of our life force.
As Loki’s force sweeps through my life and opens my mind and heart open to new concept, He makes me realise that essentially it is all connected. The Divine Force manifests for us in the way we can accept it – be it through angels, Gods or Light.
