There is a lot of talk about Archangels, Angels and Ascended Masters but what does it all mean to us? How do they work with us?
This is a basic outline of the Spiritual Hierarchy and an explanation of how these beautiful beings can help us, without judgement.
Hierarchy of Angels
The Angelic world comprises three triads:
Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones
The Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones form the first triad - heavenly counselors.
The highest order of the highest hierarchy are the seraphim, the celestial beings said to surround the throne of God, singing the music of the spheres, and regulating the movement of the heavens as it emanates from God.
Beyond the thrones are the cherubim. They are the guardians of light, and of the stars. Remote from our plane of reality, still their light touches our lives, the divine light that they filter down from Heaven.
The Thrones are the companion angels of the planets.
Dominions, Virtues and Powers
Dominions, Virtues and Powers form the second triad - heavenly governors.
The Dominions are the heavenly beings who govern the activities of all the angelic groups lower than they are. They also serve to integrate the spiritual and the material worlds. Although they take their orders from God, and rarely contact individuals, their work is connected to our reality.
The Virtues are of particular importance to us now because they are able to beam out massive levels of divine energy.
The Powers are the bearers of the conscience of all of humanity, the keepers of our collective history. The angels of birth and death are in this category. They are able to draw down and hold the energy of the divine plan the same way trees draw down the energy of the Sun. In this way, the powers can send all of us a vision of a world spiritual network.
Principalities, Archangels and Angels
Principalities, Archangels and Angels form the third triad - heavenly messengers.
The Principalities are the guardian angels of all large groups, from cities and nations to recent human creations such as multi-national corporations. These might more accurately now be called integrating angels.
The Archangels have the task of looking after us. These beings are from a different family from the angels. There are many different kinds of archangels in this larger family. The four we are most familiar with are Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel.
It is the Archangels who are mostly involved with our planet and our spiritual evolution.
However during this time of enormous change both to ourselves and our planet, each and every being in the Angelic realms has an important function.
We are not limited as to which Archangel or Angel we wish to communicate with but on a day to day level the four main Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel are the most familiar, earth orientated Archangels to call upon.
I have listed the main specialist areas of these Archangels and having experienced many angelic visitations, I highly recommend calling upon these celestial beings to help you with any life issues you are facing.
The main difference between an Angel and Ascended Master is that an Ascended Master has lived lives as a human (incarnated) and an Angel has not. An Ascended Master has evolved spiritually over many life-times to reach enlightenment which is a state of bliss and is free from fear.
An Ascended Master still has the memory of personality ego but is at a much more evolved state than most humans. An Ascended Master has mastery over his/her own thoughts and emotions and no longer has negative thoughts or intent.
Ascended Masters are working with the earth plane as guides to assist human evolution. They respect our free will and usually only assist on request. People on a spiritual path will usually attract Ascended Masters to assist them as high level guides.
