Angels and Archangels
Angels – Heavenly Messengers
God created the angels out of his own essence as beings who would sustain his magnificent feelings throughout the universe. Their assignment was to infuse men and elementals with those qualities that are necessary in planning and executing the will of God upon earth: faith, hope and charity, peace, understanding and compassion, purity, comfort and healing, mercy and forgiveness and such praise of eternal life as would unite men and elementals in service to their Creator and in love to one another.
Angelic messengers carry the magnitude of the divine potential to the farthest reaches of cosmos and consciousness. They come bearing rainbow hues of joy, beauty and delight, portending the advent of the Christ in every man. Their love and unfailing direction is a clarion call that integrates the lower and the Higher Self in unity of purpose, plan and action. Their love is a balm of friendship, an unguent of healing and the oil of heavenly inspiration.
The love of the angels is a divine magnet that keeps the stars on their appointed rounds, the atoms of our being inclined to do the heavenly will and each monad in his rightful place. Their love is a sacred tone, the music of the spheres, the Spirit that animates nature and all things beautiful.
Thus, while man’s portion was to become the Christ and to sustain on earth the illuminating radiance of God’s mind, the beings of the elements would build the temple to grace his wisdom—stone on stone of measured will, the Architect’s design. And angel beings, inspired by the plan, vowed to bring coals of inspiration still glowing from the Father’s hearth. In this trinity of cooperation we behold the action of the Cosmic Christ and the balanced manifestation of the cosmic threefold flame of wisdom, love and power.
Rêve Angélique, or Angel’s Dream, by Anton Rubinstein, reflects the musical rhythm and harmonies that are in the center of our cosmos and the action of the seraphim as they form circles and tiers focusing the energies of God around the Central Sun.
Archangels - Our teachers, guardians and friends
Archangels are extraordinary beings, extensions of God himself, personifying his grace and majesty and power. All the archangels are healers. They come as master surgeons to repair our bodies, even as they mend the garments of our souls. There is no field of study in which they do not excel. With the Elohim, they exercise the power to create or uncreate life.
The title “archangel” was given to those who became masters of their worlds “as Above, so below” and that of “archeia” to their feminine complements. In order to earn this office, many who are now archangels had to embody in human form, experiencing the same tests as the sons and daughters of God. However, there were some who remained in the heaven-world and never took embodiment in the physical octave.
El Morya urged us with “Now I say, invoke the momentum of the seven archangels to amplify in your soul and in your desiring to be whole the feelings of God which compel the entire consciousness into conformity with the geometry of selfhood. The seven archangels wield the power, the wisdom, and the love of Infinity—of a cosmos yet to be born within you as microcosmic-macrocosmic energies converge to become the warp and woof of the creative life force. Now expand the cup of consciousness to contain the archangel of your ray.”
