The seven heavens and the 7 hells







The 7 celestial mansions and the 7 palaces The 7 heavens and the seven earths. These would be similar to the lowlands and highlands of our world. The seven heavens stack one over the top of each other in a straight line.I am presenting this information by combining in order both 7 Heavens 7 Earths.





The First Heaven



Shamayim or ShamainThe 1st heaven,Shamayim borders the Earth and is ruled by Archangel Gabriel.This is the lowest of the heavens. It borders our world and is thought to be the dwelling place of Adam and Eve. This heaven being the first and closest to Earth acts as a shading agent for the Earth. This heaven has clouds, wind and upper waters. It is the home to two hundred astronomer angels who keep watch over the stars. To complete the visual picture of this heaven one would see legions of guardian angels of snow, ice and dew living in this vicinity.



In the Apocalypse of St. Paul this region is called the promised land. It is described as , "Now every tree bore twelve harvests each year, and they had various and diverse fruits, and I saw the fashion of that place and all the work of God, and I saw there palm-trees of twenty cubits and others of ten cubits, and the land was seven times brighter than





The First Earth



The inhabitants of this world are the descendants of Adam. It was said to be dull and cheerless but little is known about it.





The Second Heaven



Raquia or Raqia The 2nd heaven Raquia is ruled by the Archangels Raphael and Zachariel, and, according to Enoch, it is within this heaven that the fallen angels are imprisoned waiting final judgment in complete darkness. This was at one time suppose to be the dwelling place of John the Baptist.





The Second Earth



The people of this world, also descendants of Adam, were hunters and cultivators. The were cursed with almost constant sadness. When not sad they were at war. It was also believed that visitors here came in with a memory and left with no recall of prior events.





The Third Heaven



Sagun or Shehaquim



The 3rd heaven is unique for many reasons. According to Enoch, hell lies within the northern boundaries of the

third heaven. Sagun (or Shehaqim) is ruled over by Archangel Anahel and three subordinate saraim: Jagniel, Rabacyel, and Dalquiel, and is the residence for Archangel Azrael, the Islamic Angel of death. The northern region of this heaven has a river of flame that flows through the land of cold and ice, here the wicked are punished by the angels.The southern lands are a bountiful paradise, thought

to be the Garden of Eden, where the souls of the righteous will come after death. Two rivers, the river of milk and honey and the river of wine and oil flow here. This heaven if where the Tree of Life can be found. The beautiful celestial garden is where all perfect souls go after death and is guarded by 300 angels of light. It was also recorded

that the entrance to this heaven is a gate of gold.



The Third Earth



Although this world was one of shadows it also had woods, jungles, forests and orchards. The inhabitants lived off the fruit of the trees.







The Fourth Heaven



Machanon or Machen





The 4th heaven it is ruled by Archangel Michael, Is

the site of the heavenly Jerusalem, the holy Temple and its Altar. It is here that, according to Enoch, that the Garden

of Eden is actually housed, not in the third heaven.It is said to house the city of Christ and is the native seat of the angels.St. Paul's Apocalypse describes it as It was all

gold, and 12 walls encircled I and there were 12 walls inside. There were 12 gates of great beauty in the circuit of the city and 4 rivers encircled it. There was a river of honey and a river of milk and a river of wine and a river of oil.



The Forth Earth



This world has two suns and is very dry. The cities here were rich and wondrous, but the dwellers were constantly looking for a source of underground water. It was said that these people had fair features and were full of spiritual faith.





The Fifth Heaven



Mathey or Machon

The 5th heaven Mathey is the seat/home of God, Aaron, and the Avenging Angels. The beautiful southern region is where God can be found while the northern boundaries are said to be ruled by Metatron's twin brother Archangel Sandalphon or Samael (Camael, Chamuel). This region was like a great void of fire and smoke, which had no firm ground above or below. A terrible desolate place where it is said the fallen Grigori

(watchers) angels who sinned and cohabited with woman were imprisoned; Well personally I find this to be very unlikely so, as we, mankind, have been blessed with His greatest gift Free Will I would have expected at least the Angels to have been blessed with the same gift also. I believe that if an angel chooses to fall down to mankind to experience life and follow the paths of re-incarnation there is nothing wrong in that, let's not forget that we are angels too which have forgotten how to fly.In the southern regions, on the other hand, reside the ministering angels who endlessly change the praises of the Lord.



The Fifth Earth



The people here live off the land and seem to be a bit simple minded. There world has a red sun and is very dry. The people have two holes in theirs heads instead of noses making it easier for them to breath the dry thin air.



The 6th heaven



Zebul is ruled by Archangel Zachiel (Sachiel) and his

subordinate princes Zebul (during the day) and Sabath (during the night)This stormy, snow ridden dwelling is home to the seven phoenixes and the seven Cherubim who sing the praises of God. A multitude of other angelic beings also reside here.It is like the angels University of knowledge who study an array of subjects including astronomy, ecology, the seasons, and mankind.



The Sixth Earth



Here the seasons are very long. These inhabitants can travel from earth to earth and are credited with being able to speak all languages. This earth is said to be the place where Hell can be found, all seven layers of it one on top of another. The topmost layer being Sheol followed by, perdition, the gates of death, the gates of the shadow of death, silence, the bilge and the lowest pit.









The Seventh Heaven




The 7th heaven is the holiest of the holy heavens. Araboth is ruled by Archangel Cassiel and is home to God and his Divine

Throne it is also the abode of human souls waiting to be born.It is also home to the highest orders of angels - the Seraphim, Cherubim, and Thrones.It is in the 7th Heaven that Isaiah has a glimpse of God and the Christ and hears the Most high dictating the program on his (Christs) earthly manifestation and return.



The Seventh Earth



This world's form is very much like that of Earth's, having hills, mountains, valleys and flatlands. Here lies 365 different types of bizarre creatures. These creatures range from having two heads, to having multiple bodies, but are considered to be righteous. They are considered quite superior and live off the aquatic life found there. They have the unique ability to prolong life or bring the dead back to

life.



In Enoch 2,8, the Garden of Eden and the Tree of Life are both found in the 3rd Heaven. The Zohar mentions 390 Heavens and 70,000 worlds. The gnostic Basilides vouched for 365 Heavens.Jellenek (in Beth Ha-Midrasch) recalls a legend which tells of 955 Heavens.





In Enoch 2 the Heavens number 10. Here the 8th Heaven is called Muzaloth. The 9th Heaven, home of the 12 signs of the zodiac, is called Kukhavim. The 10th, where Enoch saw the vision of the face of the Lord, is called Aravoth (Hebrew term for the 12 signs of the Zodiac). The confusion of the Heavens is clear here from the fact that the signs of

the zodiac do not lodge in the Heavens named after them.



The notion of the 7 Heavens appears in

The Testament of the Twelve Patriarchs and other Jewish apocrypha, and was familiar to the ancient Persians and Babylonians. The Persians pictured the Almighty in the highest of the 7 Heavens, seated on a great white throne, surrounded by winged cherubim.The Koran also speaks of 7 Heavens.

12 Angelic Orders / Hierarchy







The Number Twelve (12)



To understand about the celestial orders/hierarchy it is important to know exactly what an angel is . Briefly it can be described as: a spiritual being that is believed to be much more powerful than a human. In Christian, Muslim, Jewish and other theologies an angel can be one who acts as a messenger, attendant or agent of God.



Regarding the celestial orders/hierarchy, the majority of scholars believe that angels are divided into clearly defined ranks and depending on the rank of the angel it will have separate honors and duties.



To understand better how this number of Twelve Orders list was form see The Number Twelve (12) section.



Each Angelic Order has its special purpose for

existing, and now lets see some details about them.

Orders of the First Choir



Supernals - Celestials - Illuminations



Seraphim - Cherubim - Thrones



Orders of the Third Choir



Dominations - Virtues - Powers



Orders of the Fourth Choir



Principalities - Archangels - Angels"justify"





The First Choir



ANGELS OF PURE ENERGY:



The Will of the Source:



The First Choir is the non-tangible one and the expression of the loving intention of the Source of the Whole of Existence. Within the 1st Choir are three Orders of Beings of Pure Light which are everywhere and nowhere at the same time, and thus an of God Himself - The Source of the Whole of Existence.



This first Choir forms a kind of Trinity and the means for The Source of the Whole of Existence to extent his Divine

Will, Wisdom and Light downward to the next Orders of Angels and so on to the physical realms.These Angelic Orders are listed each as they came into being and into there Choirs.



The first order of angels were the first companions for the Source of the Whole of Existence also known as the Holy Twelve



Angels of Presence



Then the second order came into being and so on in the same capacity. In actuality they came into being simultaneously before there was time. Each order took on different roles and a variety of duties as they interacted with the universes.



The first angels existed as brilliant shinning light, and radiated tremendous loving everywhere.



The Angelic Orders of the First Choir are:



The Supernals the Celestials and the Illuminations



SUPERNALS:



The First Order of Angels are of brilliant gold light and are companions to The Source of the Whole of Existence.



They form what are known as the Holly Twelve or the Angels of

the Presence.They are known as the Supernals. There are always 12 Supernals at any given time that serve in this capacity, as 12 is the number of completion within physical

orders. Their presence forms within it, the abode of the Source of the Whole of Existence.





The Holy Twelve -Supernals are those beings, who are extensions and the first intentions of the Source of the Whole of Existence. Each of these twelve possesses an ascending and descending principle of creation in balance, harmony and synchronization with each of the twelve. The Holy Twelve assisted the angels in becoming aware of the wisdom of all things.

ILLUMINATIONS:



Those of the Third Order of Angels are of the highest physical form and maintain and accomplish the emulations of divine light and wisdom throughout the physical realms.

They appear as iridescent light and are known as

They are present within all physical realms.





Member of this Angelic Order :



Sandalphon (Ilaniel)



The Second Choir ANGELS OF PURE CONTEMPLATION:



Govern All Creation:



The second Choir of angels is collectively concerned

with the universe and the manifestations of divinity within it, operating at the highest level of the astral. Some see these as the angels of pure contemplation. This means that they manifest energy through pure thought.



These angels possess the deepest knowledge of Divinity, and its inner workings and manifestations. The angels of the first Choir are:



The Seraphim Cherubim



Thrones



SERAPHIM:



The Fourth Order of Angels manifests so rapidly within the physical realms that they appear as 6 wings of light with eyes. They are known as Seraphim, their very name means ardor and are in charge of maintaining the presence of the Source of the Whole of Existence within the physical worlds. They are the guardians of the various universes.



Quote from Dionysius the Areopagite



The name Seraphim clearly indicates their ceaseless and eternal revolution about Divine Principles, their heat and keenness, the exuberance of their intense, perpetual, tireless activity, and their elevative and energetic assimilation of those below, kindling them and firing them to their own heat, and wholly purifying them by a burning and all- consuming flame; and by the unhidden, unquenchable,

changeless, radiant and enlightening power, dispelling and destroying the shadows of darkness.



The Seraphim are primarily concerned with vibrational manifestations which keep Divinity in perfect order. They have been described as being the angels of love, light and fire.



They help to carry positive energy through the orders of the angels to us in the physical realms. Supposedly they are so bright and powerful that to look at them would instill one with pure fright. Because of this, the only beings known to interact with the Seraphim are The Lord and Lady, and the Archangel Michael. These angels work with consuming divine love and compassion.



The Seraphim without question they are the closest in

all of heaven to the very throne of God, and their primary function is to circle the incomprehensibly beautiful throne in perpetual adoration of the Lord. This is a task that is not nearly as monotonous as it may seem to mortals, given the nature of the angels (who have perfect powers of concentration) and the delight that such an honor actually brings to the spirits.



The Seraphim are almost always identified with fire-not the burning, painful flames and heat of hell, but the healing flame of Love. They are literally living flames. The intensity of their adoration and pure Love of God pure out of them as a flawless reflection of the Divine Love that emanates from the Lord. Like the rising sun, each angel radiates such light that even the other Holy Beings, the

Cherubim and the Thrones, cannot look upon them.





According to Enoch, each Seraphim has six wings. In

the Old Testament Book of Isaiah (6:1-3) he write...I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple. Above him stood the Seraphim; each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. In the Book of Revelation (4:8) is another possible reference: And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of

eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to sing 'Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty who was and is and is to come!





In Isaiah 6, we read that the Seraphim have 6 wings



Magically, work with the Seraphim when you wish to

raise energy for humanitarian or planetary causes. They listen to group

ritual. To reach the Seraphim, burn a white candle for Divinity, and a purple candle for the Seraphim.

CHERUBIM:





Members of the Fifth Order of Angels are youthful and appear as faces of light or very childlike forms. They are the reminders of joy, happiness and the essence of creation. They are known as Cherubim



They appear when humanity remembers its own joy and allows happiness to be present.



Their name signifies "fullness of knowledge". Characterized by a deep insight into God's secrets, the cherubim hold the knowledge of God and they truly possess the fullness of the divine science of heaven.It is also they who are often sent to earth with the greatest of tasks; the

expulsion of Man from the Garden of Eden and the Annunciation of Christ were both performed by cherubim". They enlighten the lesser orders of angels and are to them the Voice of Divine Wisdom.



Quote from Dionysius the Areopagite



The name Cherubim denotes their power of knowing and beholding God, their receptivity to the highest Gift of Light, their contemplation of the Beauty of the Godhead in Its First Manifestation, and that they are filled by

participation in Divine Wisdom, and bounteously outpour to those below them from their own fount of wisdom.



The Cherubim have been described as the guardians of the fixed stars, keepers of celestial records, best owners of knowledge.They are also said to be the guardians of light. They create and channel positive energy from Divinity and appear in exquisite form. They supposedly outshine all the other angels. The Cherubim watch over all the galaxies, and guard any religious temples.An older description places the Cherubim with four faces and four wings, which could be a mythical representation associating them with the four winds.

In the Renaissance period they somehow got shrunk into little baby-face angels now known as Cherubs.





Function and Philosophy





The Cherubim Order is the fifth of the 12 accepted Orders of angels, placed fifth as well in the second Choir of the angelic hierarchy (with the Seraphim and Thrones). They are some of the most powerful and awe-inspiring of all angels, standing below the Seraphim in direct closeness to God. Their illuminative knowledge and wisdom are thus so great as to be utterly incomprehensible to the mortal mind, blinding the

blessed human who has the honor of actually beholding them in this world. Only a step below the Seraphim in Divinity, the Cherubim have always been much more active on Earth, protecting all God's creations. No other Order works harder (only the Powers are their equals in relentless devotion to duty). If humans knew just how much the Cherubim have done

for them, they would occupy the most privileged station in Angelic Lore.In Islamic lore, the Cherubim was allegedly created out of the tears shed by the Archangel Michael for all the sins of humanity. They are the first angels to be encountered in the Old Testament, being posted in the

Book of Genesis in the east of Eden to ensure that no one entered after the expulsion of Adam and Eve. Their chief task in the celestial hierarchy is to sing the praises of God, but they are also declared in occult lore to have the responsibility of driving the Chariot of the Lord (Merkabah), a key symbol of heaven. They are described as the Charioteers of God, steering the Ophanim/Wheels (another name use for the order of Thrones).

The Cherubim are also given the task of maintaining the records of heaven and seeing to the details necessary to

keep order in the Heavenly Host.Characteristics: Cherubim had the bodies of a winged bull, an eagle, or a sphinx and the faces of men or lions. As is clear from Ezekiel's encounter, the Cherubim possess four wings and four faces, symbolizing

their eternal vigilance and knowledge, which reaches every direction of Creation. They are also often presented with peacock feathers bearing a host of eyes, again in reference to their all-seeing omniscience.Contrary to paintings

on greeting cards and new age book covers, the cherubim are not depicted as fat, winged babies. Instead they are described as sphinx like creatures in Assyrian lore, or the angels gracing the Ark of the Covenant and Solomon's temple in biblical terms.



Magically, seek the Cherubim when you need divine protection, wisdom, and knowledge. To reach the Cherubim burn a white

candle for Divinity and a blue candle for the Cherubim.

Lucifer (before his fall)



THRONES:



Angels of the Sixth Order are beings of tremendous power and movement. They are the keepers of higher more expanded energies. They ensure that these energies maintain connections and flows through the realms. They are known as Thrones They act as the conduits of the physical worlds and tend to be more stationary in their existence.



Quote from Dionysius the Areopagite text:



The name of the most glorious and exalted Thrones denotes that which is exempt from and untainted by any base and earthly thing, and the super mundane ascent up the steep. For these have no part in that which is lowest, but dwell in

fullest power, immovably and perfectly established in the Most High, and receive the Divine Immanence above all passion and matter, and manifest God, being attentively open to divine participations.



Known in scripture as the bringers of justice, but their status in hierarchy is often confused, sometimes placing them above the Seraphim, and sometimes placing them as the Cherubim. They do however, come in the second Choir, and are assigned to planets. This position makes them some of the most powerful angels in service to the Lord. According to St. Thomas Aquinas, the Thrones have the task of pondering the disposition of divine judgments. In other words, they carry out or fulfill the divine justice of the Lord.



They create, channel and collect incoming and outgoing positive energies. Dispensation of justice is important to the Thrones and they send healing energies to victims while shining a light on injustice to bring it's presence to our attention.Like their counterparts in the second angelic triad, they come the closest of all Angels to spiritual perfection and emanate the light of God with mirror-like goodness. They, despite their greatness, are intensely humble, an attribute that allows them to dispense justice with perfect objectivity and without fear of pride or ambition. Because they are living symbols of God's justice and authority, they are called Thrones and have as one of their symbols the throne.



Function and Philosophy



This group of Angelic Princes are often also called Ophanim, Wheels or Galgallin It is said that they were the actual wheels of the Lord's Heavenly Chariot (Merkabah). The four wheels had rims and they had spokes, and their rims were full of eyes round about.They are also frequently

referred to as many-eyed ones God's spirit is conveyed in a certain manner to these angels, who in turn pass on the message to men and the inferior angels.



Characteristics Having the most bizarre physical appearance of the celestial host, they are described a great wheels, covered with a great many eyes and glowing with light. One explanation given for this (besides them acting as God's chariot), is that they mark the end of the first Choir, where the emanations of God begin to take on more material forms and as such exist in a state of transition.Magically, call on the Thrones when you need assistance in smoothing relations with groups of people or between two individuals. For any issue involving a need for stability, or planets or planetary energies, call on the Thrones. To reach them, burn a white

candle for Divinity and a green candle for the Thrones.

The Third Choir ANGELS OF THE COSMOS:



Govern All The Cosmos:



The third Choir Angelic Orders Dominions



Virtues Power concern themselves with the governing of a specific planet, as well as those angels assigned tasks below them. These angels flow in an intensity of power. They also carry out the orders they get from the Angels of the above

Choirs. Third Choir angels deal with the cosmos and its interconnectedness.



DOMINATIONS:



Within the Seventh Order of Angels are those beings that distribute and maintain connections between all beings and things within physical realms. They are known as Dominations or Dominions They are so called because they rule over all the angelic orders charged with the execution of the commands of the Great Monarch.



They are also known as the Lords, Kyriotetes or Hashmallim, whose purpose is to regulate the duties of the lower angels.They act as a form of middle management between the upper Choir and the lower. Receiving their orders from the seraphim and cherubim these bright spirits make known to

us the commands of God and ensure the cosmos remains in order. Their main virtue is zeal for the maintenance of the King's authority. Only on very rare occasions do they reveal themselves to mortals, instead they quietly concern themselves with the details of existence.They integrate the material world with the spiritual, continuing balance and order between the two. They are described as carrying an orb or scepter as their emblem of authority. Function and Philosophy Also called the Dominions and the Lords,



Dominations are one of the 12 accepted orders of Angelic Princes, ranked seventh overall. They belonged to the Third Choir with the Virtues and Powers. According to Dionysius, the Dominations have the duty in the Heavenly Host of regulating the activities of the angels. Through the efforts of these spirits, the very order of the cosmos is maintained. They handle the minute details of cosmic life and existence, designating tasks to the lower orders of angels. The Dominations are gifted with the ability to take part in the different corporeal aspects of the Symphony; seeing the

world through an endless array of eyes. They are the most alien of all of the Orders, capable of experiencing life in ways other angels can only imagine, but they are also closest to the human experience in many ways.



Quote from Dionysius the Areopagite



The name given to the holy Dominions signifies, I think, a certain unbounded elevation to that which is above, freedom from all that is of the earth, and from all inward inclination to the bondage of discord, a liberal superiority to harsh tyranny, an exemptness from degrading servility and from all that is low: for they are untouched by any inconsistency. They are true Lords, perpetually aspiring to true lordship, and to the Source of lordship, and they providentially fashion themselves and those below them, as far as possible, into the likeness of true lordship. They do not turn towards vain shadows, but wholly give themselves to that true Authority, forever one with the Godlike Source of lordship.In the traditions of Angelology, Dominations are the

first Angels (and therefore the oldest Angels) created by God.



Characteristics



They are sometimes perceived as travelers, appearing in widely separated spaces and times. By custom Dominations are believed to wear green and gold, and their symbols are the sword and scepter. This denotes their lordship over all created things. In turn, the dominations receive their

instructions from the Cherubim or Thrones. On a magical basis, anything concerning leadership falls under the area of the Dominations. To reach the Dominations burn a white candle for Divinity and a pink candle for the Dominions.

What is an Angel

02:01 Aug 21 2010
Times Read: 1,050


What is an Angel



The word angel is thought to be derived from the Greek word Angelos which means messenger.



In Christian, Muslim, Jewish and other theologies an angel can be one who acts as a messenger, attendant or agent of God.



Throughout the bible it is generally seen that the will of God is usually imparted or carried out by angels.Angels are

spirits without bodies, who possess superior intelligence, gigantic strength, and surpassing holiness.



Angels are composed of ethereal matter, thus allowing them to take on whichever physical form best suits their immediate needs.



They enjoy an intimate relationship to God as His special adopted children, contemplating, loving, and praising Him in heaven. Some of them are frequently sent as messengers to men from on high.Angels are the essence of love and joy and stem from the Heart of God/Goddess.



Now, you will ask why God/Goddess? Is God a female or male?

He is neither and both at the same time. What is referred to us as God is just the Supreme Source of the hole Existence, a Spirit of such a magnitude, so unconceivable, that has no sex and could be both at the same time if it chooses to. So the reference to God/Goddess was just to emphasize that however you choose to call upon him/her/it it's of no importance.



Angels are countless in their number, and flock around

the Universe in their millions. Angels are dedicated to serve the needs of all free will entities so that you may experience the same level of unconditional love as they do. Each Angel carries out its assigned task without any hint of hesitation as they take great joy and pleasure in offering their Loving Wisdom and Guidance. Everyone has Angels around them constantly, without exception, and they are eager and excited at the opportunity to communicate with you.



Angels was created with one purpose, the purpose to love and to serve all without condition. In doing so, Angels hold a focus of pure love throughout the Universe and are therefore able to set up a resonance for the vibration of pure love wherever it is needed. You on the other hand, are a free will entity. That means that you have chosen to develop your ability to exist with unconditional love by gaining much experience through many lifetimes and many varied forms of existence. The Angels have been created to counter balance any energies or actions that move in the opposite direction to love so that you will eventually remember your true essence.



In Christian religion and theology an angel can also be a member of the lowest order of the nine-fold celestial hierarchy this is a ranking which comes directly below archangels. A fallen angel is often classed as a devil, like Satan himself; whereas a guardian angel is classed as a human guide or protector.



Angels are commonly represented by a figure with wings and wearing a long white robe. They are also sometimes depicted wearing halos which emanate from the angels' head in a glorious wreath of light, serving as a symbol of divine wisdom. Angels do not die or age, they are immortal, created by God and existing since the Creation. Generally they are accepted as being the guardians of souls. Although angels are generally divine, they have been shown to be fallible and prone to sin, particularly pride. One of the most notable examples of this being Satan and his fallen army.



Angels can take on a variety of different forms. In Ezekiel 1:16-21, Isaiah 6:1-3, and throughout the book of Revelation

they are described as taking on not only the appearance of men but many fantastical forms. A notable example was the angel who took on the appearance of a burning bush. The image of an angel with wings tends to symbolize the spiritual nature of the being. The purpose of the wings being to allow the angel to travel through the ether as well as being a symbol of divine authority.



Angels are everywhere and you can ask for Angels to assist you with anything you wish. There is no limit! In fact, if no Angel is available for a particular task, an Angel is created as an answer to your wish or prayer, just for you! Yes, the You and the Divine create Angels on request. Angels are God/Goddess making a personal visit, but in a scaled down form. However, the love that they have is just as immeasurable. Remember - Angels are bound by the laws of Free Will.



Therefore, they can not assist us in our lives unless we ask them too. So,don’t forget to ask!



Here is it again God/Goddess and the same question arises.



Angels appear to us with many forms and shapes. Many times the qualities of an Angel are so delicate that they choose female forms or even masculine bodies with female face characteristics. An Angel will appear to us with the

form that is best for us.



A Spirit Guide is also a free will entity, but has evolved over what you would consider to be a long time. They are part of a group consciousness of beings that have evolved beyond form into beings of pure light and essence. Although Angelic in nature, Spirit Guides are a free will entity and therefore choose their path of further growth. Spirit Guides are master teachers and are able to travel and navigate through many, many levels of existence. They are here to Guide and teach when you are willing to listen. They are always communicating to you through your thoughts, music, your environment, wherever they need to be in order to get your attention.



Everyone has at least one Guardian Angel, and sometimes two or three. A Guardian Angel is a being that is dedicated to serve and to help you throughout your lifetime. However, the

relationship is somewhat deeper than that. Your Guardian Angel was created out of the same essence that makes up your soul. It could be said to be a higher, or essence aspect of yourself. Your Guardian Angel isn't essentially separate from you, it has absolute and unequivocal dedication to you and

travels with you on every journey that you as a free will entity choose to make. Your Guardian Angel makes an agreement with your soul to assist it in completing any task it has decided to undertake. This is the reason why Angels have been known to make miraculous rescues from accidents. If a soul has decided to remain focused on the Earth Plane for a given length of time, an Angel will assist in getting someone out of trouble who's 'time is not up'. Angels and their miracles are God's way of remaining anonymous.



An Angel, is complete, unified and centered within the Heart of the Divine at all times. An Angel does not question or contemplate itself, it simply is. In being itself, it is a bundle of God's ever present love and grace. An Angel has been created to serve, love, hold and support those to who it is assigned, and those who ask for Angelic support. Angels are to be found in every corner of the Universe, and in their millions! If you could see Angels with the naked eye, you would be amazed at just how populated the Earth really is. Have you ever felt a breath of cool air brush along your cheek when alone somewhere? That might very well have been an Angel moving aside as you walked into an Angel

conference, quite unaware!



So, if you have a Guardian Angel, why do guides make contact with humans? Your Guardian Angel is that part of your eternal being that is holding a vision and focus of you as a unified

child of God-Goddess. Your guide, on the other hand, is here to assist you in making easier choices that will help you to grow through experiences with joy and with more ease. Not all guides are permanent, once you have learned all that you can with one guide, another will often take over and take you

further. Your Guardian Angel has love and protection to impart, and as such, his or her purpose is to provide you with a reflection of your true nature so that you may never totally forget the essence of the Divine. You could say, your Guardian Angels holds the 'blueprint' of what you truly are in focus so that you may awaken to that ultimate truth. The ultimate being that you are, one that is pure love, that you are God!



There are Angels for just about every function you can think of, and many more! There is no limit to how many Angels you can have in your life and there is no limit to what you may

ask for! You can ask Angels to assist you with any project, problem or issue you may have. You may call upon Angels whenever you wish to and for whatever purpose provided that the purpose is not intended to hurt or injure anyone or the Earth itself. Ask the Angels to fill your home with love, ask them to watch over your children at school, ask them to travel with you on long journeys, ask them to sponsor you when you are trying to stop smoking or are trying to lose weight and get healthier. Ask an Angel to take care of your

computer or to assist you in resolving an argument with a friend or relative. There is no limit to what you may ask an Angel to do for you. By simply getting used to blessing all that you experience and through asking



Angels to be present everywhere on your life, you will begin to embody Angelic qualities in your life. You will be more open to the love and abundance of the Universe. You will begin to experience more joy, health and laughter as you sense the wings of Angels as they fly around every aspect of

your life.



In many religions such as Christianity, Judaism and Islam, it is believed that between God and mankind there are intermediary beings, called angels. They are bodiless entities that perform certain tasks for God and are commonly thought of as the messengers of God. Angels are good spirits, unlike their counterparts the demons. They are usually portrayed as having a human form, being dressed in long, white clothes, surrounded by a bright light and with long, swanlike wings. They were portrayed thus by artist, often on Church command, to alert the faithful that angels are more than human. There are cases, however, where angels appeared as ordinary men and were mistaken as such (the story of Lot,

for instance).



In the early stages of mankind, the belief in spirits was universal. The primitive man believed that there were no good or bad spirits. A spirit simply had powers, called manna, with which it could do either good or evil. With the emerging of Christianity and other major religions, the belief in

these kind of spirits was condemned, and they became demons. The belief in angels and demons can be traced back to ancient Persian religion where there were two supreme beings: Ahura Mazda and his eternal opponent Angra Mainyu.



The first represents good and the second represents evil. Both have followers and servants, angels serve Ahura Mazda, while demons serve Angra Mainyu. Here the distinction was first made between good and evil spirits.

The Fallen Watchers ~ Grigori

The Fallen Watchers ~ Grigori





There is a group

called the Watchers or Grigori. This is the group that this

passage speaks of. They are said to look like human male, but taller/larger,

they never slip and they are silent. In Jewish legend/lore it is said that

there are good and evil watchers, the good watchers residing in the 5th

Heaven, while the evil ones reside in the 3rd Heaven.



The mysterious eighth order of angels, the gentle Grigori were

created by God to be Earthly shepherds of the first humans. The Grigori were

both physically and spiritually gigantic, at least by the standards of the

people who later wrote about them. They served early humanity as vast

reservoirs of information concerning the finer points of civilization, and

their selflessness was beyond compare. They were also called the Watchers,

as it was their job to observe humanity, lending a helping hand when

necessary but not interfering in the course of human development.

In the Book Of

Enoch, it describes that God had sent a legion of angels to earth in order

to watch over and assist man during the beginning of civilization. These

angels taught man sciences which were forbidden by God such as the magic in

herbs, reading the stars, divination and sorcery.



Enoch goes on to

say:..but they chose husbands and wives from among the humans and led greatly

debauched lives, neglecting their heavenly duties...This angered God

greatly and he banished the fallen & Sadly these

angels were not suited to this job and instead of playing a positive role

they began to teach man sciences that God had deemed to be forbidden.

These subjects included astrology, divination, herb craft and magic.

To compound this, they also began to lust after some of the women they were

supposed to be guiding. In order to cohabitate with these women they even

assumed physical forms. Although the church might argue that angels have no

gender and therefore are unable to procreate anyway, the following excerpt

from Genesis 6:4, points out that "the sons of God went to the daughters of

men and had children by them . The resulting half-breeds were named as the

Nephilim This kind of bad

angelic behavior could not be tolerated and as a result the Grigori were

taken from their posts and imprisoned in a layer of heaven. Although they

appealed to Enoch to speak on their behalf to God, they remained bound for

70 generations. As for the Nephilim, it has been suggested that one of the

main reasons for the great flood, was not only to punish man, but to cleanse

the earth of the half-bred creatures created from the union of fallen spirit

and flesh. Among the Strega

the Watchers are called the Grigori. Originally there were 4 royal stars or

Lords and they were called the Watchers. Each of these Lords ruled over one

of the 4 cardinal points...North, South, East, West.

North - Formalhaut - who marked Winter Solstice

South - Regulus - who marked Summer Solstice

East - who marked the Vernal Equinox

West - who marked Autumn Equinox

In the Strega

Mythos, the Watchers were Gods who guarded the Heavens and Earth. Over time

the Greeks made them Gods of the 4 winds, and the Christians made them

creatures of the Air. In Stregheria we call the elements from the altar. The

Grigori are of a higher realm and guard the portals to the gods.



In A Dictionary of Angels by Gustav Davidson, the good Watchers are

portrayed as a high order of Angels, (Archangels), also known as Grigori or

Irin

Chief of the

Good Grigori are Archangels:

Uriel, Raphael, Raguel, Michael, Zerachiel, Gabriel, and Remiel
