we have heard on high
singing ore the plains
the mountains in reply
their joyous strains
bible references the angels were referred to as messengers. That’s all they
were. They delivered messages to earth from God. If you read and listen to many metaphysical people you might
believe angels are supernatural beings who can intercede on your behalf in very difficult circumstances.
In the first
sphere of Angels are the Seraphim, Cherubim, and Ophanim; they are the ones closest to God according to numerous sources.
The description of the Angelic beings called Ophanim — also called Thrones — is really quiet
interesting. They are depicted as having four sets of wheels with eyes set in the rims and are constantly
spinning. They can move in four directions. Too me, this sounds like many
descriptions of flying saucers
stand close to the Seraphim who are known as the fiery ones. Their flames are always flickering as they
ascend and descend. The
Cherubim are not pudgy little putti or small children as depicted in Valentine
Day cards. Cherubim protect the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden and the
Throne of God.
They have four faces, one a man, second a lion, third an eagle and fourth an ox. Each corresponds to a cardinal sign of the Zodiac, and
also to one of the four cardinal directions, as well as to the Equinox’s and Solstices. Each face also
corresponds to the four
archangels: Raphael of the East, Michael of the South, Gabriel of the West, and
Uriel of the North.
All this information comes from a man named Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite. He was a fifth century
Syrian Christian, philosopher and mystic who wrote about the hierarch-al levels of angels in heaven. He had quite an impact,
writing that there are three levels and each level has three levels within it, giving us nine levels of angels. These angels are found throughout
all three of the Abrahamic religions — Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
What about the so-called fallen
angels? Who were they and what of their offspring? The study of Angology is really quite fascinating and full
of all sorts of information,
especially about the fallen angels and their offspring. According to lore some
of that bloodline is still among us. I have often wondered if offspring would appear to us mere humans or as something that fits
the description of an Angel, a Deva or a Fey. All these beings show up in myth and lore throughout human history.
And who are the Fey? Are they related in any way to the angels? Did you know that the original
description of Fairies was tall radiant beings with wings and magical powers? It is thought that
perhaps the Fey might have been pagan Gods/Goddess of special sacred places in
nature, such as springs or mountains. With the incursion of Christianity they became the local supernatural spirits or demons.
the teachings of Theosophy, Devas are archetypal living beings, spiritual forces in nature, and each planet has numerous Devas and elementals of its own. If your third eye is active you can
see them as well as elementals such as the sylphs, the salamanders, the undines, and the
each elemental corresponds to a cardinal direction and to an Arch Angel.
So are these the Angels who were singing “Ore The Plains”?
about the Mountains Reply? How would those mountains sound now? Speaking of
mountains — I read an article about one of our last glaciers in Yosemite
According to Greg Stock, Yosemite’s first full-time Geologist “We
give it 20 years or so of existence — then it’ll vanish, leaving behind rocky debris. The
Lyell Glacier has died and has lost over 60% of its mass and 120
vertical feet of
ice. Experts give it 20 more years before it has completely vanished out of
existence.” When that
happens all of the plant and animal life dependant on it will leave too.
Are Angels singing about that and are our mountains echoing that reply? How would
the sound of Angels singing echoing off the rocky debris sound? It would be a sad sound indeed. Do our
Angels or Devas or Fey cry for us when they see
the mistakes we are making on our planet? Are they crying out? Are the mountains echoing that reply?
So who are
our messengers now? Who would you call an angel?
I would like to ask if my readers would send me their thoughts and feelings about whether or not you believe in Angels, Devas or
Fairies and if you have had a personal interaction with them.
Do you believe the fallen
Angels slept with human women like the Ancient Pagan Gods slept with mortal
woman and had offspring? The stories of ancient Greece and Rome are full of
these tales. The conception of Jesus Christ is one of those stories as is the
story of Hercules.
Both men had mortal mothers and Gods for fathers.
