Some people first coming to this site are surprised. Extraterrestrials. Ascended Masters. Angels!
Angels seem to be the hardest to accept. Never mind that the Bible
sees angels has angels deliver the glad news of the messiah’s coming,
rescue people from dire situations, protect the prophets, etc.
Never mind that the Koran was dictated by an angel (the same one who
delivered the glad tidings about the messiah). Never mind the growing
literature on angelic visitations, the detailed accounts by incarnated
ascended masters like Beinsa Douno, or even the radio shows today where
they speak to us. Angels for some people are the last straw.
Having finished the job of sweeping the darkness from the Earth (or
nearly so), we now face the task of introducing some of the Light
warriors who did it and no one needs more introducing than angels. So
again I take up the task of writing an article on the angels and I’d
write many more if I had the time.
I’ve written whole sections of websites on the subject. You’re
welcome to go there and study them. (1) Let’s look at how angels serve
humanity by bestowing God’s light upon us, how they’re depicted
journeying back and forth between the various orders of life and the
Divine, and who serves them as they serve us.
The Nineteenth-Century spirit teacher, “Imperator,” who later
revealed himself to be the prophet Malachi, reminds us of the problem we
face regarding angels: “The ladder between Heaven and earth has always
been [there], but man’s unbelief [has] cut him off from the ministry of
angels.” (2) Our lack of acceptance of higher-order beings in general,
but angels in particular, cuts us off generally from receiving their
services – and gifts.
As Imperator tells us, the angels radiate God’s influence to
humanity. They bestow enlightenment on people, the light emanating from
“We desire to show you that God Himself
is the center of influence, and that His influence, flowing through
intermediary agencies, permeates humanity; and those influences
(angelic, you call them) influence mankind.
“Man becomes the means of disseminating
the knowledge of which he is the unconscious recipient. Man may
cultivate the power given to him and aid the work he is chosen for,
fostering the dwelling of the Spirit of God among men. The power of God
comes from on high, descending through the angel ministers, permeating
His chosen messengers, showing men how they may be fellow-workers with
Throughout history the wisest among us attest to the angels’ bestowal
of light upon humans, like St. Paul, whose higher self, Saul, speaks to
us today in channeled messages: “Are [angels] not all ministering
spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of
salvation?” (4) By “heirs of salvation” he means those who merit
After we attain the highest enlightenment available to us from them,
it’s rumored that we become equal to them, if not angels ourselves. Here
is Pseudo-Dionysius on the subject:
“In time to come, when we are
incorruptible and immortal, when we have come at last to the blessed
inheritance of being like Christ, then, as scripture says, ‘we shall
always be with the Lord.’ In most holy contemplation we shall be ever
filled with the sight of God shining gloriously around us as once it
shone for the disciples at the divine transfiguration.
“And there we shall be, our minds away
from passion and from earth, and we shall have a conceptual gift of
light from him and, somehow, in a way we cannot know, we shall be united
with him and, our understanding carried away, blessedly happy, we shall
be struck by his blazing light. Marvellously, our minds will be like
those in the heavens above. We shall be ‘equal to angels and sons of
God, being sons of the resurrection.’” (5)
Rumi recites the kingdoms we go through before we rejoin God, the angelic kingdom being the last:
“I died as mineral and became a plant.
I died as plant and rose to animal.
I died as animal and I was man. …
Yet once more I shall die as man, to soar
With angels blest; but even from angelhood
I must pass on: all except God doth perish.
When I have sacrificed my angel soul,
I shall become what no mind e’er conceived.
Oh, let me not exist! For Non-existence
Proclaims in organ tones, ‘To Him we shall return.’” (6)
Thus, consciousness evolves and ascends until it journeys from
unconscious awareness of its identity as God to conscious awareness. The
ascension journey is often represented as a ladder. The Bible uses the
image of Jacob’s ladder to depict the angels descending to humanity to
bring them the Light of God and then returning again.
“And Jacob … dreamed, and behold a ladder
set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold
the angels of God ascending and descending on it.
“And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the LordGod of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac.” (7)
We heard Imperator use the ascension image of a “ladder between
Heaven and earth” to describe the angels earlier. (8) Here he depicts
the angels traversing that ladder in a way reminiscent of Jacob’s dream.
“The angels, as of old they called them,
‘spirits’ as ye know them, who traverse the space between you and your
God, bring down blessings from Him, while they carry up your prayers to
His Throne. These are the steps between God and Man, the channels of
The Koran also uses the image of a ladder to depict the ascension
journey. After all life forms have returned to God, the angels and the
Holy Spirit or Divine Mother will also return to God by that ladder of
ascension: “Allah … is the Lord of the Ladders, by which the angels and
the Spirit will ascend to Him one day: a day whose space is fifty
thousand years.” (10)
This Spirit that returns to God at the last is the Holy Spirit or
Divine Mother. Ibn Arabi in his works describes her (“she” is not a she –
or a he) as a male and a great Angel among angels.
“God has a great angel who has numberless
hairs on his head. According to this comparison all the angels and
everything else talked about [are] just like one pearl on the hair of a
person. Had God given this angel the order he would have swallowed up
the whole of existence as one morsel and would not have even noticed
that something had passed his throat. The name of this angel is Spirit.”
The most evolved among us serve the angels. On Dec. 7, 2011, when I
had a personal reading with Sanat Kumara, who’s the Planetary Logos or
ruler of the planet, surpised me by saying: “We all answer to Michael.”
Imperator also acknowledged that he and his colleagues serve the angels:
“We come to you as the exponent of the
ministry of angels. The Great Father, mindful of His Children’s wants,
sends them the angel ministry of consolation, guidance and love. From
the eternal realms of glory we come to minister to mankind. Angels,
spirits, friends passed before, coming to minister to those left
Why would all the world’s religions speak of angels or celestials or
devas if these beings were not real? Why would so many disparate sources
say the same thing – that angels bestow God’s light on humans and
assist them to return to God? Why would people deemed to be the world’s
wisest all participate in a common narrative if it was simply myth or
In fact angels are real and one of the realities that we’ll need to
become accustomed to before too much longer. So many things that were
strange or mysterious to us will be revealed these days as real and
intimately involved with our welfare.
