It is almost impossible for anyone, however gifted, to portray higher dimensional beings accurately with either the use of three dimensional art forms or the use of the written word. Realizing this, we should be grateful for whatever truth the artist or the writer manages to capture, no matter how illusive the impression.

So often, until clairvoyance is fully developed, meditators can only discern radiant faces emerging out of forms so bright that their features become indistinct. Some of the features of the Archangels are more easily perceptible, as they have the ability to step their vibrations down into the form of an actual presence. Where spiritual consciousness is alive and evolving, such a presence attends and administers to receptive individuals during communion. Whether that communion be private and individual or in a group such as a church service matters little. The Archangel purifies, redeems and consecrates the offerings of prayer and service that are sent towards the Father/Mother God.

All requests in communion and prayer are very carefully considered and if the thing asked for will be beneficial to the individual's development (or if the prayer is intercessory, for another) then circumstances are set up to allow the individual to receive. Many people believe that Angels spoke and mixed with humanity in the days of Abraham, Ezekiel, Enoch, Mary and Paul but that they no longer concern themselves with mankind and its problems today.

God, the Source of all creation, is not partial to any particular age, and the ministry of Angels has been continuous, although humanity has been largely unaware of their presence. It is only of recent years that humanity is once more becoming aware of the Angelic Kingdom. Men and women who are sincere and free of spiritual pride may enter the threshold of empirical knowledge. We should welcome every authentic insight into the Angelic realms as mankind will always need assistance from those who are pure and beneficent. Enoch spoke more frequently about the Angelic Hosts than any other biblical initiate, and we are indebted to him for introducing us to the Orders of the Angels. One of his descriptions appeared thus:

"And there appeared to me two men, exceeding big, so that I never saw such on earth; their faces were shining like the sun, their eyes too were like a burning light, and from their lips was fire coming forth with clothing and singing of various kinds in appearance purple, their wings were brighter than gold, their hands whiter than snow. They were standing at the head of my bed and began to call me by my name. And I arose from my sleep and saw clearly those two men standing in front of me. And I saluted them and was seized with fear and the appearance of my face was changed from terror, and those men said to me:

'Have courage, Enoch, do not fear; the eternal God sent us to you, and lo! You shalt to-day ascend with us into heaven, and you shall tell your sons and all your household all that they shall do without you on earth in your house, and let no one seek you till the Lord return you to them.'"
(Description of the two Angels is from "The Book of the Secrets of Enoch" by W.R. Morfill)

Even as astronomers yearn for ever widening discoveries in the heavens around them, so too do we long for deepened and expanded insight in to the realm of the Angels. But what an infinitesimal fraction of the glories enveloping us do we ordinarily perceive. Only by sustained aspiration and constructive training will we widen the circumference of our sight. So, how do we go about this?

There is no substitute and never will be for turning within yourself and attuning in meditation with your source, your Parent in energy, more commonly termed the Higher Self. Sometimes, there is too great a willingness to depend upon others for guidance, thus giving up the responsibility within yourself for discovering your own truth. (Truth is relative to each person at whatever level of development they may be, and one person’s truth may be totally different to that of another.) There is no way to substitute your own responsibility for knowing the source of your own self that has put down a spark of intense energy within your being; and so part of it is always within you. You will only recognize the harmony in another's words or teaching by developing the ability to listen within to the harmony of your own Energy Parent, and being able to see if you resonate with what the other person is saying or teaching.

Do not disregard another's truth because you do not resonate with it today; you do not have to accept it, but keep an open mind always, because something might clear within you and you might find yourself able to look at the other's viewpoint in harmony tomorrow. You may just be on a different cyclic level of awareness and viewing things from that point of view, without the ability to see the other’s person’s point of view.

Through meditation, learn to go beyond the pursuits of everyday living to the discovery of inspiration within yourself, then when you hear, recognize, or feel the harmony of another speaking from their source, the spirit within you will recognize the spirit in that one and you will build cooperation with, and support for, that which you recognize. Recognition will only come when you separate those impulses of the senses and desires, and the appeal to the ego.

Look rather for that within you that makes a demand upon you, to order your life and your thoughts in harmony with those about you. You cannot change another, because the other is reflecting back to you what you need to look at in your own shadow. Make the necessary changes in yourself; then others will also change as they begin to respond to you differently.

It is the force of infinite love within you that causes that impulse to accept and support; that impulse within you that causes a love without requirement from others that they change to meet your expectations or belief systems; that impulse within you that uses an ability to look into the hearts of others, and sees the Source of all life, however dark they may be in their actions or expressions in their outer personality life.

Always look for the source of harmony and love within yourself and keep searching till you find it – it is the pearl of great price so often spoken about. Develop that as if it were a tiny spark at first (which it is), and then with much patience, develop it into a flickering flame and ultimately, a glowing light, so that you can depend upon that within yourself, which causes change ever within you; change towards harmony, change towards an understanding of the self.

Learn to recognize that within you, which constantly points out to you disharmony in your thoughts, desires, actions and appetites – it is the purifying process beginning to work in your life; that which points out to you the inconsistency between your ideal and the expression of your life. Strive always towards your highest ideal; that within you that makes demand upon you that you forever grow and change, expressing not judgment or condemnation of others, nor disapproval and correction of others. Seek out that within you that causes a welling up of love, acceptance and support of others, which will cause the light in them to be built. In other words, this is the learning to overcome the shadow. Nothing will be achieved except through the development of yourself. No one can walk your path for you.

It is through the highest development of your own consciousness, that you lift the evolution of the consciousness of the entire planet. One person on this planet attuning perfectly to the Source within, will lift the consciousness of all others on this planet a little closer to God. As you develop and grow in this manner, with love and understanding in your heart, then will those things of the spirit begin to impinge upon your consciousness, and you will see those higher dimensional beings; you will see those things that God has kept for those that love Him; those things kept hidden by the lower vibrations that most carry within them.

Author's Bio: 

I have always known that I came here for a special reason. I felt it as a child when I able to communicate with beings that others could not see. Some of these memories have faded, but there are some that will never leave my memory and I can see them in my mind’s eye even now as clearly as I see a living person. As I grew older, the material plane took my attention away from things spiritual and I did not have contact again until my twenties when I became aware of a being who wore a long silvery blue cowled robe. This being merely observed me; there was no communication at a conscious level.

It was many years later in my late twenties when I became involved in Hermetics that a more conscious communication began to occur and angelic presences began to appear. These beings, and one in particular, had not the normal appearance that I thought angels should have. This being, whom I still work with today, was huge. He had a look similar to a Greek statue; a muscular physique hidden beneath a long white robe tied with a cord at the waist with blonde wavy to curly hair brushed back from a high forehead with piercing eyes that seemed to bore right through me This being exuded power and there was almost a sternness about his countenance.

These contacts were interrupted for a time when I then went on to do the traditional things like marriage, buying a home and having a child. But even during this period, there was an awareness of a growing urgency and I was being directed to further study and teach elemental law. During this period also, my husband and I joined a Mystical Order and it was through a meeting with a member of this Order that we met the one whom I shall call the Sirian. My life changed radically after that meeting and it was shortly after this time that I was informed that my beloved husband was only to be here for a short time. It is strange then, how spirit often removes the memory of such things so that life can be lived as normally as possible, and such was the case in this instance, until my husband became terminally ill and passed through transition within a week of becoming ill at the age of 37. That silvery blue One I communicate with informed me after my questioning that he had already been granted extra years on earth.

My life before I stepped onto the Metaphysical Path in earnest is not relevant, so I will only mention in passing that I was involved with the Arts and it was in this field that I met my husband who was also an artist.

It was brought back to my conscious memory that part of my function was to be working in the field of the clearing of entities, elementaries, larvae, forces and dark forces and a period of training ensued and I am still involved in this type of service to this day, although the knowledge of how to work in this field will at some time be passed on to others as I am now being called to work in other areas of service.

As well as working with various healing modalities, by my early thirties, I was instructing students into the Sirian system of Meditation. At that time, the meditation consisted of three major levels of meditation. Over the past fifteen years, many more levels have been channelled through to complete the full system of meditation containing much practical meditation that has never been taught before. This meditation and many healing modalities, including Reiki, Isis Seichim/SKHM, Holographic Healing through the Merkaba, Spiritual and Etheric Surgery, Medi-Map Healing, Esoteric Tarot, Kabbalistic Pathworking and Vibronic Kinesiology are currently being taught under the umbrella of “Pathways to Self Mastery.”

A major portion of my work is in guiding those who are ready to reach their true potential and to find their true purpose in life. As we are living in times of great change, many are in turmoil as we evolve into higher frequency beings. This evolutionary step for humanity is not accomplished easily but people can learn to help themselves tremendously if they would only remember the words of the Master - “the kingdom of heaven is within you.” And for those who think they can’t find it – “Ask, and you shall receive, seek, and you shall find, knock, and the door will be opened unto you.”
