The 12 Most Important Things to Know About Angels - Peter Kreeft

Here's a very interesting and wonderful excerpt from Angels (and Demons): What Do We Really About Them? (Ignatius Press; 2004, sixth printing) by Peter Kreeft: The Twelve Most Important Things to Know About Them

1. They really exist. Not just in our minds, or our myths, or our symbols, or our culture. They are as real as your dog, or your sister, or electricity.

2. They’re present, right here, right now, right next to you, reading these words with you.

3. They’re not cute, cuddly, comfortable, chummy, or “cool”. They are fearsome and formidable. They are huge. They are warriors.

4. They are the real “extra-terrestrials”, the real “Super-men”, the ultimate aliens. Their powers are far beyond those of all fictional creatures.

5. They are more brilliant minds than Einstein.

6. They can literally move the heavens and the earth if God permits them.

7. There are also evil angels, fallen angels, demons, or devils. These too are not myths. Demon possessions, and exorcisms, are real.

8. Angels are aware of you, even though you can’t usually see or hear them. But you can communicate with them. You can talk to them without even speaking.

9. You really do have your very own “guardian angel”. Everybody does.

10. Angels often come disguised. “Do not neglect hospitality, for some have entertained angels unawares”—that’s a warning from life’s oldest and best instruction manual.

11. We are on a protected part of a great battlefield between angels and devils, extending to eternity.

12. Angels are sentinels standing at the crossroads where life meets death. They work especially at moments of crisis, at the brink of disaster—for bodies, for souls, and for nations.

Why do people think it's stupid to believe in angels?

One reason is a mistake about themselves: the failure to distinguish between (1) sense perception or imagination (which is a kind of inner sensing) and (2) reason, or intelligence, or understanding. We don't see pure spirits, and we can't imagine them. That doesn't mean we can't know or understand them. We can see and imagine the difference between a five-sided figure (a pentagon) and a six-sided figure (a hexagon), and we can also intellectually understand that difference. We cannot, however, sense or imagine the difference between a 105-sided figure and a 106-sided figure. Both look to us simply like circles. But we can understand the difference and even measure it exactly. So we can understand some things we can't see. We can't see qualities like good and evil either. What color or shape or size is evil? Yet we can understand them. We can imagine our brains, but not our minds, our personalities. But we can know them.

Many who deny angels deny or are uaware of the spiritual half of themselves. Angels are a touchstone of "know thyself". So are animals.

A MOST BLESSED "SAINT^MICHAEL THE ARCH^ANGEL DAY" TO YOU MY DEAR FRIENDS...

A MOST BLESSED "SAINT^MICHAEL THE ARCH^ANGEL DAY" TO YOU MY DEAR FRIENDS...
(Saint^Michael Celebration Website: http://1800sunstar.com/zzC1LUV/zholydays/saints-angels/00-st.michaels-day.html#directory )
Light a Candle and say the ARCH^ANGEL MICHAEL PRAYER with me today:
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against
the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host
by the Divine Power of God
cast into hell,
satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world
seeking the ruin of souls
Amen...


Please consider sharing this message with others...
May God Bless You, each and everyone...
Michael AngelOh

Generally speaking, a consensus of the definition of Saints is, "People who, by their joyful service, have extended the Love of God to others..." The celebration of "Saint Michael the ArchAngel Day" and all the Angels known throughout the world is "celebrated as Michaelmas" and ties in directly with last weeks Autumnal Equinox celebration for in olden times the great season of harvesting one's crops had to be completed by the date of the Michaelmas or the last Sunday in September so that a new cycle of planting and farming could begin. In the present day this is considered to be a fine time for clearing the slate and planting the seeds for new beginnings and fresh new journeys.

Archangel Michael whose name in ancient scripts means; "Who is like unto God..." is most often thought of as the mighty Angelic Warrior who drove the rebellious fallen Angel "Lucifer" from the kingdom of Heavenly paradise. Throughout history Michael has always been the most venerated and popular of the three Archangels mentioned in the scriptures. The other two being "Archangel Rafael" and "Archangel Gabriel". It is the "Archangel Michael" who is described as the embodyment of Love, Compassion and Divine Enlightenment in all of the recorded writings.

Throughout European countries many monasteries and churches are dedicated to the Archangel Saint Michael and are usually located in high places near the ocean. Saint Michael's feast day was celebrated with the tradition of baking special large loaves of bread made, offered up and eaten only on the "Michaelmas feastday". From the earliest centuries it had been a favorite practice in many communities to build Saint Michael shrines on the tops of mountains and hills. Archangel Michael is most commonly invoked as the protector of the innocent as well as a mediator for the dying and is the presenter of souls to God at their entrance into Heaven. Archangel Michael is therefore honored as the actual patron of all the holy Souls. In many sections of Europe and England, wine consumed on this day was called; "Saint Michael's Love" and this ancient ritual is preserved even to the present day.

Archangel Michael and all patron Saints and Angels serve to eliminate the negativity and confusion that is often referred to as "the dark night of the Soul," as they are called upon to bring the comfort of lasting Peace and eternal Love to the sincere petitioner. The raising of Spiritual Awareness and the unfolding of Divine Wisdom beckons to each human heart to Love unconditionally and aide in the relief of sorrow and suffering wherever it is found. This is the relentless call which comes unceasingly forward from within the realms of all the Angels and Saints.

Beautiful Everyday Prayer

My mother gave me this prayer on her last visit, and I just had to share it with you.
This prayer is so beautiful, and touches on just about everything you'd want in a daily prayer.
Thanks MOM! I <3 u!


God of my life,  welcome this new day--
It is your gift to me, a new creation, a promise of resurrection.
I thank you for the grace of being alive this morning --
I thank you for the sleep that has refreshed me.
I thank you for the chance to make a new beginning.

This day Lord, is full of promises and opportunities--
let me waste none of it.
This day is full of mystery and the unknown;
help me to face it without fear or anxiety.
This day is blessed with beauty and adventure;
make me fully alive to it all.

During this day keep me thoughtful, prayerful and kind--
May I be courteous and helpful to others, and not turned in on myself.
Keep me from any word or deed that would hurt, or destroy, or belittle--
And may the thoughts of my mind be pleasing in your sight.

When night comes again, may I look back on this day with no grievance or bitterness in my heart.
And may nobody be unhappy because of anything I have done,
or anything I have failed to do.

Lord, bless this day for me and for everyone.
Make it a day in which we grow to have the mind of Christ, your son.

Lord Jesus Christ, friend and brother,
May we know you more clearly,
Love you more dearly, and
Follow you more nearly,
Day by day.

Amen.

Archangels and Archeiai; Michael, Raphael, Jophiel, Chamuel, Gabriel, Uriel, and Zadkiel

  http://www.anaheart.com/gallery.php?t=8&n=7
by Glenyss Bourne at;   http://www.anaheart.com/gallery.php?t=8&n=7


I found this searching for information about archangels and must say that steliart.com is one of the best angel sites I've come across. See below a page from their site:

The Archangels are the captains of all the angelic hosts, having been created as the foremost hierarchs in the angelic kingdom. They are majestic beings who personify divine attributes and are at the service of the mankind of earth. They work tirelessly to defeat evil and promote good. The Archangels have divine complements or twin flames, just as people do. Their feminine counterparts are called Archeiai. (The singular noun is Archeia, and the plural is Archeiai.) Together the Archangels and Archeiai focus the masculine and feminine, or alpha and omega, polarities of the particular color, or ray, of spiritual light on which they serve. Praying to one always invokes the assistance of the other as well.
The Archangels predate us by millions of years and are reported to have been our first teachers on the spiritual path. They are also described as divine architects, whom God uses to draft and execute the plans for his projects. They are cosmic builders and designers in the grandest sense of the word, arcing to our minds the divine blueprint for every endeavor, from the smallest to the greatest.
All of the Archangels are also healers who come as master surgeons to mend our souls and four lower bodies - etheric, mental, emotional and physical. Imagine the power of the Archangels, who for millions of years have done nothing but affirm the reality of God and expand spiritual light in their being. Then when they are in our midst, they minister to us and purify us by transmitting the immense increments of light that they have garnered. Using this boost of energy from the angels properly can help us make much greater progress in our daily life and on the spiritual path.
The Seven Rays of Enlightenment
The most familiar Archangels serve on the seven rays of spiritual light that correspond to the light focused within the seven major chakras in man.

ARCHANGEL MICHAEL
artist uniknown
First Ray - Blue Ray
Faith, Protection,
God's Will
Tuesday - Throat Chakra

FAITH
First Ray - Blue Ray
Faith, Protection,
God's Will





Archangel Michael is revered within the Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions. Michael’s name means, “Who is like God.” In Joshua 5:13-15, he appeared as a man with a sword in his hand who identified himself as the captain of the Lord’s host. In Revelation 12:7, he is named as the archangel who cast Satan out of heaven.
Michael and his divine complement, Faith, serve on the blue ray of spiritual light. They can assist in purifying and strengthening the throat Chakra and in mastering all blue-ray qualities. The blue ray provides us with spiritual and physical protection and is pivotal to the proper expression of power and leadership. It is also essential for developing faith and attuning to the divine will and one’s divine plan.
Here’s a quick fiat that you can give to Archangel Michael if you are ever in personal distress and need immediate assistance. It can be especially helpful in traffic mishaps and difficult situations of all kinds when no other help is in sight. Giving this call in the full fervor of your being will bring Archangel Michael instantly to your side.
Archangel Michael,
Help me! Help me! Help me!

ARCHANGEL JOPHIEL
Second Ray - Yellow Ray
Wisdom, Illumination, Constancy
Sunday - Crown Chakra
CHRISTINE
Second Ray - Yellow Ray
Wisdom, Illumination, Constancy

Archangel Jophiel, Archeia Christine and their bands of angels serve on the yellow ray of illumination. Jophiel means “Beauty of God.” Christine infuses matter with the light of the Christ consciousness. Jophiel and Christine aid people with wisdom, understanding, inspiration, discernment, discrimination, knowing the mind of God and all activities related to the crown Chakra.
If you need more sharpness of mind for passing exams, inspiration for projects at work or an understanding of how to resolve a conflict, you can ask Jophiel and Christine for help. They can also rescue people from ignorance or spiritual blindness that might keep them from fulfilling their souls’ highest potential.
Here’s a quick fiat to give for any situation in your life that needs more insight, clarity or illumination.
Archangel Jophiel and Christine,
Blaze illumination’s flame through me!
|Up|
 

ARCHANGEL CHAMUEL
Third Ray - Pink Ray - Ruby Ray
Love, Adoration, Gratitude
Monday - Heart Chakra
CHARITY
Third Ray - Pink Ray - Ruby Ray
Love, Adoration, Gratitude

Archangel Chamuel and Archeia Charity serve on the pink ray of divine love. Chamuel’s name means “He who seeks God.” Chamuel characterized himself as “God’s pure love in winged manifestation.” He is the angel mentioned in Luke 22:43 who strengthened Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Chamuel and Charity are powerful emissaries of divinity and among the most fiery and intense of the archangels in their expression of love. Together they embody the great heart and love of the Father-Mother God for all creation. They help souls develop the heart Chakra and give assistance in all matters of the heart. These include compassion, better communications, a balanced love of self, the extension of oneself to others, and the creation of beauty through the arts. The healing of losses or schisms in family relationships or with friends can also take place with the help of these angels.
Aside from working with people in particular instances, Archangel Chamuel, Archeia Charity and their angels are involved in a more overarching work to reunite twin flames. You can call to these archangels to help you with discovering your divine mission with your twin flame. You can also ask them to help you gain mastery on the ray of love and to facilitate things running smoothly in your everyday life.
A powerful fiat to call them into action in situations of personal need or any division between individuals is:
Chamuel and Charity,
Let divine love take dominion now!

ARCHANGEL GABRIEL
Fourth Ray - White Ray - Resurrection Flame
Purity, Harmony, Poise
Friday - Base of the Spine
HOPE
Fourth Ray - White Ray - Resurrection Flame
Purity, Harmony, Poise

Archangel Gabriel, whose name means “God is my strength” or “Man of God,” serves on the white ray of purity. Gabriel is recognized by the three major Western religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In Islam, he is the angel who delivered the Koran to Muhammad; in Christianity, he is the angel messenger who announced to Mary that she was to be the mother of Christ.
Archangel Gabriel and his twin flame, Archeia Hope, assist light-bearers in working with the light in the base-of-the-spine Chakra and in mastering qualities of the white ray—purity, order, hope, joy and discipline. The seraphim of God also serve with Gabriel and Hope. The seraphim come bearing the light of the Father-Mother God. They can literally place their presence over us and we can absorb that light and energy into our bodies as a sponge absorbs water. When we desire to unite with divine consciousness through purity of body, mind and soul, these angels can help us raise the kundalini to achieve that goal.
Gabriel, who is often depicted with a trumpet, is the archangel of the annunciation, heralding to each soul of light the good news of the path of the ascension and their ultimate union with God. He has made that announcement to many of us, resulting in the sudden realization that we are being called home and have much work to do to balance our karma and achieve that end. Regarding working toward this goal, Gabriel has emphasized that serious spiritual seekers should determine to know, to have and to hold light, and to be the servant of light while they are becoming masters of the light.
You can give the following fiat to fill yourself with light, energize your spiritual path and help propel you to your ascension.
In the name of Gabriel and Hope,
I AM a holy one of God!

ARCHANGEL RAPHAEL
Fifth Ray - Green Ray
Truth, Healing, Science
Wednesday - Third Eye
MOTHER MARY
Fifth Ray - Green Ray
Truth, Healing, Science

Archangel Raphael, whose name means “God has healed” or “God shall heal,” serves on the emerald green ray, the fifth ray. The Zohar, a Jewish mystical text, says that Raphael is charged with healing the earth as well as healing men. In Christianity, he is revered as the angel who healed the sick at the pool of Bethesda.
The divine complement of Raphael is Mary, the mother of Christ. The ascended masters have revealed that God called Mary, an archeia, to take embodiment so that she could some day be Jesus’ mother. In preparation for this mission, Mary served long ago on Atlantis and worked in the healing temples of that continent. She is sometimes called by other names such as Mother Mary, the Blessed Virgin and Queen of the Angels. Mother Mary holds the immaculate concept for each soul on earth. You can call to her to help you attune to your innate divinity. Rosaries are frequently given as a powerful way of invoking her assistance.
Archangel Raphael and Mary work with students in mastering the light of the third-eye Chakra. This Chakra and the green ray deal with wholeness, vision, truth, healing, science, holding the immaculate concept for oneself and others, and the desire to manifest the abundant life on earth. These archangels can also provide inspiration to musicians, singers and composers for the creation of healing and inspirational music.
You can also call to Mary and Raphael for healing in times of illness, when you need the vision for a particular project, or when an increase of resources would enable you to better fulfill your mission. And you can call to them to heal your soul of present difficulties or past traumas. Following is a brief prayer for healing you can give anytime:
Raphael and Mary, I ask for
[name yourself and/or another person]
to be healed of
[name the condition/s],
in accordance with God’s holy will.
I AM God’s perfection manifest
In body, mind and soul -
I AM God’s direction flowing
To heal and keep me whole!

ARCHANGEL
URIEL

Sixth Ray - Purple and Gold Ray - Ruby Ray
Peace, Ministration, Service
Thursday - Solar Plexis
AURORA
Sixth Ray - Purple and Gold Ray - Ruby Ray
Peace, Ministration, Service

Archangel Uriel’s name means “Fire of God” or “God is my Light.” He is mentioned in some Judeo-Christian books. For example, in the apocryphal text the Second Book of Esdras, Uriel is known as the archangel of salvation.
Uriel and his twin flame, Aurora, serve on the purple and gold ray, the sixth ray, and they tutor individuals in gaining mastery in the solar-plexus Chakra. This sixth ray is the ray of service and ministration, peace, brotherhood, resurrection and divine judgment of all that is evil. The purple and gold ray is flecked with ruby, which adds the intense action of divine love. It brings forth the desire to gain self-mastery in one’s Christ consciousness in order to serve both God and man.
Uriel and Aurora bring vibrations of peace and brotherhood wherever they are called. Whenever there is the need to soothe disagreements or to bring about brotherhood between people, they want to help Wielding the power of discriminating judgment carried by the light of this ray, Uriel and Aurora separate the real from the unreal and their angels bind all that is not of the light in individuals and in the earth.
To help us accomplish our goals in this life, Archangel Uriel told us to affirm that God is one with our true Self by using the fiat: Peace, be still and know that I AM God! Using this fiat can bring the light of the sixth-ray archangels into your world in a powerful way. It sets the tone for overcoming all that is less than the Christ consciousness within us. You can give it as many times as needed to feel the energy in your solar plexus Chakra and consciousness literally shift and become more peaceful.
In the name of Archangel Uriel and Aurora, Peace,
be still and know that I AM God!

ARCHANGEL ZADKIEL
Seventh Ray - Violet Ray
Freedom, Mercy, Transmutation
Saturday - Seat of the Soul

HOLY AMETHYST
Seventh Ray - Violet Ray
Freedom, Mercy, Transmutation

Archangel Zadkiel and his feminine complement, Holy Amethyst, embody the spirit of the violet ray, the seventh ray, and the age of Aquarius. Zadkiel’s name means “Righteousness of God.” He and Holy Amethyst assist humanity in mastering the seat-of-the-soul Chakra.

These archangels bring the flame of freedom, joy, forgiveness, alchemy, justice, transmutation and liberation of the soul. We can enhance these qualities of the violet ray in our lives by invoking the violet flame through the science of the spoken Word.

Using the violet flame can erase past memories, bring forgiveness and increase the spirit of joy within us. And each time we call on Zadkiel and Amethyst, who embody the violet flame, we bring change to the earth and ourselves, come closer to merging with our Christ Self and help prepare the world for the incoming golden age. According to Archangel Zadkiel, the success of the age of Aquarius is absolutely dependent upon our invoking the violet flame and a single call to the violet flame can be worth a million prayers.

You can call on Zadkiel and Amethyst to help purify you from past karma and to bring new vitality to your life. While giving the following affirmations, visualize the violet flame wiping away obstacles to your soul’s liberation:
In the name of Archangel Zadkiel and Holy Amethyst,
I AM the violet flame in action in me now!
I AM the blessing and buoyancy of the violet flame!
I AM freedom from limitation!

Essential Oils to use to Connect with your Angels

I love angels, and essential oils too!
There's nothing like the feeling of light surrounding you with love and reminding you how special you are....
Angels are precious gifts, thank them for protecting and guiding you...
Here's a post I found that is perfect for which essential oils to use to help you connect with your angels...


In The Fragrant Heavens, aromatherapist Valerie Ann Worwood writes about using aromatherapy to connect with your angels. Worwood believes that fragrance attracts angels because the vibrational effects of fragrance are the closest thing in the physical world to the vibrations of angels. However, the fragrance is just a connection; you still need to use good intent and purpose in asking your angels for support.
The best essential oil to connect with your angels is a very personal matter, and you'll need to experiment to find what works for you. Here are just a few of the possible essential oils that Worwood lists to communicate with angels:

  • ·         Angelica seed if you feel uncertain or spiritually neglected.
  • ·         Basil to clear a muddled mind.
  • ·         Bay if you tend to dwell on the past and want to look forward.
  • ·         Bergamot to clear away fogginess.
  • ·         Birch to clear away physical barriers.
  • ·         Black pepper for protection.
  • ·         Cardamom to connect the spiritual to the physical.
  • ·         Cedarwood for wisdom.
  • ·         Roman chamomile to bring inner peace and joyfulness.
  • ·         Clary sage for harmony and purpose.
  • ·         Coriander for guidance for change.
  • ·         Cypress for dealing with grief.
  • ·         Frankincense to send love and prayers.
  • ·         Grapefruit for uplifting and joyful appreciation.
  • ·         Lavender for harmony and compassion.
  • ·         Myrrh for understanding and compassion.
  • ·         Orange to bring the joy of your angels into your heart.
  • ·         Peppermint to remove barriers.
  • ·         Ylang ylang to calm a troubled mind and bring self-forgiveness.

The sixth chakra (also called the 'third eye' or brow chakra) is located at the pituitary/pineal level in the center of the brain (not the center of the forehead), and is also known as "the Third Eye". This chakra governs spiritual direction and wisdom. It is the seat of dreams, inner vision, and the spiritual life. Its color is indigo or shades of dark blue and deals with self-mastery, wisdom, opening doors to the subconscious, restoring long-buried soul memories, bridging the finite and infinite, assisting and guiding our inner journeys to spiritual or cosmic knowledge. Indigo also deals with connecting to a higher understanding, self-acceptance, and intuition, as well as spiritual and celestial love. The 6th chakra is the seat of all your intuitive abilities: inner seeing, inner hearing, inner feeling and inner knowing. The physiological functions of the third eye chakra or 6th chakra are related to vision, the eyes, and the pituitary gland, the 1st cervical vertebrae, endocrine system, sinuses, ears, and face, and metaphysically affects; the energy center of intuition, imagination, and creative visualization.

We are better at healing, more sure of the future, and tend to make better choices. This is the chakra of visions and dreams and imagination.
