ANGELS

Spiritually Guided Readings Angel Angels are not etheralised human beings, evolving animal qualities in their wings; but they are celestial visitants, flying on spiritual not material pinons. Angels are pure thoughts from God, winged with Truth and Love, no matter what their individualism may be. Human conjecture confers upon angels its own forms of thought, marked with superstitious outlines, making them creatures with suggestive feathers; but this is only fancy. It has behind it no more reality than has the sculptor's thought when he carves his "Statue of Liberty", which embodies his conception of an unseen quality or condition .....

Angels are God's representatives. These upward-soaring beings never lead towards self, sin or materiality, but guide to the divine principle of all good, whither every real individuality, image or likeness of God, gathers. By giving earnest heed to these spiritual guides they tarry with us, and we entertain "angels unawares." - Mary Baker Eddy - Science and Health.

Information on Archangels

Shekinah is the Angel of Unity and Unconditional Love. She is a female angel who always stays close to humankind, inspiring mortals to be just and fair, bringing balance and harmony to our minds and spiritual being. Her name means “bride of the Lord” and she is charged with redeeming us from evil and leading us back to God so that we may be liberated and cleansed in the eternal light. She symbolises our struggle through darkness into the light. Shekinah is the connection from Earth to Heaven.

Metatron is the Angel of Thought and Manifestation. His name literally means “the throne beside the throne of God”. He is considered one of the most important Archangels who led the children out of Israel. Metatron helps us communicate with God and brings God’s presence to us and opens up our hearts in order to better receive this guidance. Responsible for supervising the Akashic Records, a special archive where all out thoughts and deeds are recorded upon a screen of mental essence. Metatron helps us manifest our Divine spiritual qualities. Metatron is the connection from Heaven to Earth.

Metratron traditionally is the most powerful angel, the one closest to God. His counterpart Shekinah, is the feminine. The Tetragrammaton (unspeakable name of God in Hebrew represented by the letters IHVH (Yod Heh Vau Heh) is a balance of masculine and feminine forces. Metatron and Shekinah are different aspects of the divine as it begins to manifest. Thus the divine is neither masculine nor feminine but a perfect balance of both.

The Traditional Seven Archangels

Michael –  The Archangel of Protection. Michael means “who is a God”.  He is also known as angel of “The Last Judgement”. Michael is the Angel of the South and serves on the First or Blue Ray. He is often described in wondrous form with armour and swords, and is known as a dragon-slayer. He defeated Satan, the fallen angel, by the order of God. Regardless of which major faith’s angelic being is being followed, Michael ranks as the highest of the host. He is the leader of the celestial armies and is the angel who fought Satan during the War and enchained the rebel leader. He is considered to be of the class of seraphim, and yet is also head of other ranks within the hierarchy: the ruler of the Archangels, leader of the virtues, and head of the principalities in his role as protector of Israel. Michael is considered to be the angel of the burning bush through which God spoke to Moses, and has also appeared in the book of Daniel, where God states him as being the highest within the angelic ranks. Although other angels have been attributed with the title of Angel of Death, it is Michael who weighs the souls on judgement day, after his battle once more with the forces of evil. He is mentioned as both an angel of destruction and vengeance in the name of God, but also as a protector and the angel who kept Satan from claiming the body of Moses after the patriarch’s death. All rights can consider Michael foremost among the angels. Michael will be of assistance in situations of spiritual or psychic attack, call upon Michael for protection. All flees before the sight of Michael. His virtues include protection, strength, honour, power, God-ideas and initiative.

Gabriel is the governor of Eden and is often described as a female angel with a lily in her hand. The story of the Annunciation is well known. Gabriel is the angel of resurrection, mercy, revelation, and death. Gabriel is often considered as a slightly more benevolent spirit than her ally Michael. Another notable birth that Gabriel presided over was that of John the Baptist when Gabriel came to Zacharias and told him of his coming son. Within all of the legends of birthing, Gabriel has been accredited as the angel who selects souls from heaven to be birthed into the material world and spends the nine months as the child is being developed informing the new person of what he or she will need to know on Earth, only to silence the child before birth by pressing his finger onto the child’s lips, thus producing the cleft below a person’s nose. Gabriel is the guide for all star babies on their way to Earth. Besides births however, Gabriel is also the angel who came before Daniel and told him of the future as well as the angel responsible for strengthening Christ prior to the Crucifixion. Finally, not being all pregnancies and wisdom, she is told as the angel who struck down the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah as well as other places of sin throughout the Old Testament although she is never named there as such. Gabriel may help those who need to remember or reconnect to their birth and their own descent from the stars.

Also in his role as healer, it is Raphael who eases the pain of Abraham after his circumcision, and healing Jacob’s thigh after Jacob wrestles with another angel.

RazielThe Angel of Knowledge - “Secret of God”. One of the cherubim, Raziel is the giver of divine mysteries as well as an angel of knowledge.

It is he who led to the writing of the book of Enoch and was the author of the book from which Noah learns to build the ark. This is not to be confused with Raphael, who is the angel to give Raziel’s book to Noah, but did not write it himself. What is it about yourself that you wish to know? Ask Raziel for guidance and prepare for your answer.

Zadkiel - “Angel of Mercy, Righteousness, Solace & Gentleness”.
