Musings

By Mystic Trish

 

 

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing ore the plains

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains

 

Originally in 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

The Ophanim 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.

According to 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 gnomes. Interestingly each elemental corresponds to a cardinal direction and to an Arch Angel.

So are these the Angels who were singing “Ore The Plains”?

And what 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 National Park. 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.

Happy New Year and Have a Cool Yule!
