This post gives a quick summary of Group 6 who represent those who are able to dominate others and fulfill their desires for better or worse. On the light side, they become humanitarians. On the dark side, they become sociopaths. However, whether working for the light or the dark they are still immersed in the world of the five senses, something that will only be overcome more in Groups 7 & 8.
ALICE BAILEY MODEL WITH COLORS
Note: These colors follow the traditional spectrum of color as science, artists, and most systems that study the chakras know it. It does not always reflect the colors mentioned in the Bailey books and I am personally not too thrilled with some of the titles of these colors (corn? pumpkin?). Have a better idea? Let me know. Also, The below also includes triangles and a circle I have put in. Becoming Human focuses on the Personality triangle. The majority of humanity is not yet what Bailey calls an “Integrated Personality.” Becoming Soul (which is the book I am putting up as I finish each chapter now), covers some of the levels of the Personality triangle as it becomes “soul infused,” as well as the circle below known as the “Egoic Lotus” (which is the “Soul” in this system). When the personality becomes completely “soul-infused” we then shift increasingly to the Spiritual Triad to become “Spirit.” Please see these as stages of unfoldment. As long as we are in a physical body we all have personalities, souls, and are Spirit, we just have not unfolded the various levels yet.

BAILEY’S 10 GROUPS
Note: No where does Alice Bailey correlate her 10 Groups of Human and Soul Evolution with various sub-planes. The correlations are all my ideas based upon my current understanding of her work. After many years of working on this I feel these are adequate correlations, but as my understanding deepens adjustments may be made.
According to the Alice Bailey teachings members of all ten of her groups can be found in our world. The majority of humanity is found within Groups Three, Four and especially Five. But, more and more people are moving into Group Six meaning that an understanding of what this level of consciousness will look like is essential as in the centuries to come this level of consciousness will dominate our world. You will note that as I attempted to correlate this group with Bailey’s various sub-planes I have done so using the three different levels of the 3rd, 2nd and 1st subplanes of the Emotional Plane.
3rd Subplane of Emotional Plane
Note: Bailey has a lot to say about what an Integrated Personality is comprised of. Rather than be redundant please go to Chapter Thirteen: The Integrated Personality Emerges and read what she has to say about it.
Heading Keywords from Chapter Thirteen: The Integrated Personality Emerges
- Secular Materialists
- Masters of the Universe
- Intelligent Activity
- Emphasis on the Individual
- Greed is Good, Altruism is Evil
- Don’t Care What Others Think
- A Sense of Destiny

- Illogical Logic
- Make Up Your Own Rules
Summary of Chapter:
Moving into the 3rd subplane of the Emotional Plane, we reach the level that some might see as dangerous, but is essentially good and necessary, that of Group Six, Aryan consciousness and establishing oneself as an Integrated Personality. At the beginning of their development, Integrated Personalities tend to be secular, selfish, materialistic, and separative. That may seem like a bad thing, but it is a result of the mind finally developing to the point where independent thought begins. The compliant, conformist and often confused emotionalism of Groups Three, Four and Five are rejected as the mind becomes seemingly more logical and rational. Because Group Six members are still on the Emotional Plane this so-called “logic” is still heavily influenced by what Bailey calls glamour, which prevents the individual from truly seeing things as they really are on a deeper, more spiritual and REAL level. For this reason they possess what really amounts to an “illogical logic.”
Also, integration of the personality implies an integration in two directions. Inwardly, the individual integrates his/her mind, emotions, vital and physical bodies so that they are more coordinated and able to assist in helping the individual satisfy their desire natures orientated towards gaining as much money, pleasure, and power as they can aquire. In Maslow’s words, this helps the person “Self-Actualize” (if by “self” at this stage we mean the lower self, or personality). Outwardly, integration also means the capacity to effectively integrate into the larger world. This helps the Integrated Personality become influential and effective in larger and larger circles, and this can potentially become world wide at some point.
If the stage of Integrated Personality has not been successfully mastered as people move into Group Seven (which is more spiritual in nature), then “cleavages” (as Bailey calls it), or gaps, take place and we will find people who are more selfless and in many ways spiritual, who sadly remain largely ineffective in having much of an influence in the larger world. This is one reason why the stage of Integrated Personality is so important. If accomplished in a successful way, it allows the individual to be a real agent of change for the good for all of human kind at some point.
Also, Group Six and the Integrated Personality stage is known as Integral Orange, when we switch from the Bailey model to the Integral one. Though in the chapter I mention areas where the Bailey and Integral models do not always line up at this level. Similarities between the two models include an emphasis on being more logical, rational, reasonable, and scientific. Differences come about when you factor in that much of the so-called reason, logic, and rationality that Integral Orange talks about are highly influenced by glamour, or distortions, that from higher spiritual perspectives may not make them very logical, rational, or reasonable at all. Another problem between the two models is that Integral’s stage of selfishness and over-blown narcissism occurs only much earlier in their model (Integral Red), where the Bailey model allows for different levels of this selfishness and narcissism to happen all the way into her Group Six. In the Bailey model Group Three (which is similar to Integral Red) is selfish only to a limited degree. Because they are not yet Integrated Personalities, they lack the coordination and integration both inwardly and outwardly, preventing them from having a very wide level of influence in regards to their potentially destructive natures. With Bailey’s Group Six, this has changed. Because Group Six members are Integrated Personalities, their selfish and destructive natures if left unchecked, can potentially become destructive for the entire human race.
Finally, we need to remember the pros as well as the cons of becoming an Integrated Personality. Both these pros and cons have been mentioned in this chapter. Unlike the Integral model where we seem to be growing away from selfish and separative tendencies (their Integral Red), in the Bailey model we are in many ways only just beginning to grow into them. For most of humanity the stage of the Integrated Personality is an ideal and something to strive for. We are also told that this stage for human kind as a whole could last potentially for thousands of years. That is one reason it may be so important to consider the Bailey model approach, because it emphasizes the urgency in preparing for this stage to emerge in such a way on the whole those who are above the Group Six level (in Groups Seven, Eight and even above), can work to mitigate its most destructive effects. Along these lines I refer you back to the suggestions laid down on pages 113—114 of this book summarizing the thoughts of Bailey concerning steps that can be taken to help those at the Integrated Personality Group Six level.
2nd Subplane of Emotional Plane
Heading Keywords from Chapter Fourteen: Integrated Personality in Crisis
- Becoming Magnetic to the Masses
- Coping With the Public
- Managing the Public’s Perceptions
- Tightening the Grip
- Loosening the Grip
- Introduction to the Seven Types of Integrated Personalities
Summary of Chapter: Sorry I forgot to do one. I will add one in later before I remove the book from the blog and publish it. But, essentially it shows the crisis the Integrated Personality moves into as he or she tries to live as a separated individual apart from the whole and the various ways they try to manage remain elite, special and exclusive from others for better or worse. At some point no matter how hard the individual tries they are unable to hold their separative stance leading at some point eventually to the emergence of a spiritual crisis.
1st Subplane of Emotional Plane
Heading Keywords from Chapter Fifteen: The Spiritual Aspirant
- Spiritual Materialism
- Emphasis on Spiritual Highs
- Need to Look Good “Spiritually”
- Physical Disciplines Overly Emphasized
- Overstimulated Sexually
- Desire for Instant Enlightenment
- Eros Undressed
Summary of Chapter: Again I forgot to do a summary. Basically at this point the spiritual aspirant emerges (to use Bailey’s phrase). The individual is beginning to understand spirituality as different from complying with a set of religious norms set down by authoritative scriptures or religious leaders (something Groups Four and Five are prone to do). Having experienced success as a separative Integrated Personality, but finding it did not lead to the ultimate happiness one desired, the individual starts to discover the path of becoming a spiritual individual. The desire to look good and have all the benefits of the realm of the five senses (money, pleasure, power) is still a major lure. The motive to be spiritual is mixed for this reason leading to the Aspirant attempting to “have it all” without any major transformation or sacrifices involved.
