  7. 7. Introduction od’s power throughout all ages and cultures has come down from above. The Lord’s messengers have wings on which they carry the good news of God’s love to humans on earth. These messengers are angels, who like the sun and stars, bring God’s light down from the heavens. Like gentle, solar rays cast down from a burning ball of fire, this celestial army of angels break into millions of facets and forms as Millions of spiritual creatures walk the they touch down on earth. At each tier, their power is earth unseen, both stepped-down so that we can grasp the otherwise incompre- when we wake and when we sleep. hensible mystery of God. Through their resemblance to this JOHN MILTON, life, they make God’s awesome love understandable to the PARADISE LOST, IV human world. There has been much written about angels in the last • 1 •
  8. 8. r Introduction s few years. But not much has been said about their relation- ship to light and the beautiful spectrum of rainbow colors. Angels are always depicted in art as coming from the sky, often bathed in rays of sunlight breaking from the clouds. As a person interested in the hierarchy of the heavens, I have tried to understand the many ways our Father/ Mother God comes to us. It is no surprise that I focus on the angel as messenger. I believe we are I became fascinated with a particular class of angel, free, within limits, the archangels, who are perhaps the best known angels in and yet there is an history. They are the messengers who bring us the intelli- unseen hand, a guiding angel, that gence of the universe in a simple, practical way. They repre- somehow, like a sent seven principles of God’s foundation—power, wisdom, submerged propeller, drives us on. love, purity, healing, service and forgiveness—also known as RABINDRANATH the Seven Rays of Enlightenment. These rays are the seven TAGORE colors of the rainbow, and each ray is guided by an archangel. Imagine the Godhead as pure white light. The light • 2 •
  9. 9. r Introduction s falls to the earth through a prism, refracted into seven dif- ferent colors. Each ray brings a different aspect of the Godhead to earth. For example, Archangel Michael communicates the qualities of power, faith, protection and deliverance. He governs the first ray, which is the blue ray. As the prism of the earth turns, one ray falls more intensely on each day of the week. The traits of this ray and this archangel are stronger on that particular day of the week. Each of us have a certain resonance with at least one of these attributes, which also correspond to our various missions on earth. The archangels work in the world as male and female complements. The female is the archeia, the male is the archangel. Just as in nature we work as male and female pairs when we create a human life, the archangels and archeiai introduce the quality of their ray into human con- sciousness together. • 3 •

Likewise, the balance of the seven rays can bring us to a higher plane of bliss and spiri- tual enlightenment. I hope a better understanding of the archangelic realm and how it bathes the earth in love and light will bring us the understanding of our true identity. We are the divine children of God. Working with angels, we can begin to tran- sit God’s peaceful kingdom on earth as decreed in the Lord’s Prayer. “Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” It is the grand decree of God, the One Eternal Mind, • 4 •

Angels “We are neither the light nor the message, we are the messengers…The message is love.” —An angel from Wim Wenders’ Film, Far Away, So Close The prophet Mohammed said every raindrop is accompanied by an angel. “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heir of Salvation.” —HEB. 1:14 • 6 •

  14. 14. Angels and The Seven Rays ngels in one form or another are depicted in almost all of the worlds’ great religions. They are men- tioned in recorded history as far back as three thou- sand years before Christ, according to Terry Lynn Taylor in her book, Messengers of Light. Egypt, Babylon, Persia, and India recognized winged angels in ancient times. Greeks and Romans began placing wings on angels in the West, probably as a result of the influence from the other cultures. Perhaps angels got their first major foothold into Western history from Zoroaster, or Zarathustra, of Persia, who was born 600 years before Christ. He wrote about his • 8 •

(God is portrayed by Zarathustra as residing over a court of angels, oversized human-like figures, both male and female, Angels can fly who reflect God’s radiance.) because they take themselves lightly . Today, we generally regard angels as winged messen- OLD SCOTTISH SAYING gers. Their message is God, and God is love. Love is the most potent power in the universe. It is the essence, or life force through which all healing is conceived. This is the message the angels bring down to us: God/Love is all. You do not need to struggle. You need only to love God like chil- dren love their own father. You are His children. Have faith that he will provide for you. While this is simple to understand, it is more difficult to practice and believe in a world created by humanity, which presents countless opportunities for us to hurt and be hurt. When I asked an intelligent and caring friend why she • 9 •
  16. 16. r Angels and the Seven Rays s did not believe in angels, she replied, “Are there angels fly- ing over Sarajevo, or Boston Children’s hospital, or a ward for terminal cancer patients? What are they doing there?” Difficult circumstances, hardships and illnesses are all teachers, forcing us to go to God for help and solutions. Even if we do not understand these lessons cognitively, we see them in our soul. We have an inner understanding and our soul does learn. Because of God’s great love for mankind, he gave us freedom to experience the use of his power in all our worlds, and to learn from our actions. We are not created as robots, programmed to do whatever God wants us to do. He gives us the opportunity to experience the duality of both good and evil so that we may consciously choose by exercising our own free will. Through the laws of karma, or the law of cause and effect, we are able to learn from our actions. Every thought, word or deed is recorded as karma, which eventually comes • 10 •

These authors also go on to say that the ancient Chinese would place people with epilepsy on violet carpets in rooms with violet veils covering the windows.

But divine love is not like human romantic love which is too often conceived of being a painful state of desire with impulses and fears. Divine love, being everything, desires nothing. Unconditional love is all encompassing. A person experiencing such a state cannot desire anything more. Archangel Chamuel and Archeia Charity govern this petal pink stream. They radiate qualities of adoration—the profound act of honoring the divine. Such devotional love is awesome. No agony can stand up to its magnificent beauty which dissolves all illusions. • 42 •

This happens when we realize our full potential and fulfill our earthly missions. This state is attained when we balance our karma, the Eastern concept of the universal law or cause and effect. A balanced karma is attained when we have gone through a process of discipline and initiation, including good works, purity of heart, service to life and the resolution of all our debts to life. White is often associated with death and purity. Those who have “died” but then miraculously come back, often describe a white light before them, that is beckoning and inviting. These associations coordinate with our belief of the white ray. But it is not the image of death in a dark grave. The white ray stands for the ritual of ascension whereby the soul becomes immortal, achieving oneness with the Christ consciousness and the individual God Presence within. This is our unification with God and with the truth of our being. • 45 •

He showed us that the ascension is a glorious culmination of the soul’s journey in God’s universe, and is attainable by all those who choose to reach for their highest potential. This dazzling white ray is for purification and gives us the sense to strive for perfection. It is the desire to know and be closer to God through the purity of one’s body, mind and spirit. Those who work under this ray are usually spiritual leaders, architects, builders, musicians, artists, spiritual scientists, astronomers, biochemists, and physicists. Archangel Gabriel and Archeia Hope direct this ray by representing the resurrection and hope of eternal life. This “purity” flame pours forth its vibrant rays onto the earth plane most strongly on Friday. • 46 •

It is a combination of purple and gold, representing the two-fold action of God’s body and His essence.

They teach us the quality of selflessness, as described so eloquently by Jesus when he said, “I am my brother’s keeper.” As the ray of teachers, the purple and gold ray instructs us in one more important way: it represents the universal law of cause and effect known as karma. In Sanskrit the word karma means deed. Karma is the result of our consciousness in action. Every thought, word and deed is recorded as karma, and it is a means through which each person’s soul reaps the rewards or retributions for their thoughts and actions. It teaches us that we are accountable • 51 •

It is not because angels are holier than men or devils that makes them angels, but because they do not expect holiness from one another, but from God alone. WILLIAM BLAKE
  59. 59. SEVENTH RAY Violet T he Seventh Ray represents freedom and forgiveness. Sometimes called the “Violet Flame,” this ray plays a powerful role in “divine alchemy,” which is the action of transforming ourselves from a lower to a higher state of con- sciousness. This ray is most strongly active on the earth on Saturday. It is ruled by the benevolent angels of freedom and forgiveness, Archangel Zadkiel and Archeia Amethyst. If you shine light through a prism it will refract into seven colors, the last of which is a translucent violet. This is the ray with the shortest wavelength but the highest fre- quency, or fastest light vibration. Isaac Newton found that the color violet is the color that stands at the transition point between octaves of color and light. This explanation helps us see how this ray came to embody divine alchemy, which is spiritual transmutation. Alchemy, in material • 53 •

The violet flame can transmute our burdens and heal the earth when we choose to magnify its qualities of for- giveness. It is the ray that allows us at will to consciously change the energy within ourselves, our lives and the world around us. It is truly the gift of forgiveness and the action of the Holy Spirit working within. Often found working on this ray are great leaders, diplomats and royalty. No wonder the robes of royalty are often a rich purple tone. • 55 •

The angels of the first ray rule the throat chakra. Archangel Michael and Archeia Faith shine over the earth from their celestial retreat over Banff and Lake Louise in Canada, in the Temple of Faith and Protection. Religious lore ranks Michael as the master of all angels. As an archangel, he is on the second lowest of the nine ranks of angels. Yet his leadership role is undisputed. He is called the prince, or greater lord, director of the angel- ic kingdom, commander of the heavenly host and the viceroy of the heavens. In Hebrew the name Michael means nothing less than “Who is God” or “Who is as God.” In the famous War in Heaven, Michael is the leg- endary angel who cast the rebellious Satan out of Heaven after defeating him. This is one example of how Michael plays the role of defeating evil forces. Michael is most com- • 63 •

Pope Pius XII desig- nated him the patron angel of policemen and Roman Catholics call St. Michael the patron saint of Germany, gro- cers, paratroopers, radiologists and the sick according to Butler in his book, Lives of the Saints. H. C. Moolenburg, author of, A Handbook of Angels, says Michael’s role as the dragon slayer is analogous to the battle between the spirit and the flesh. The dragon is the symbol for the imprisonment of matter, “the desire to give material objects lasting character.” Michael tell us it is a los- ing proposition to try to give permanence to the temporal plane of matter. It is the ultimate windmill tilting, the worship of false idols. In short, it is head- ing in the opposite direction of spiritual evolution. “Michael is thus the inexorable opponent of Satan, he who tried to make of man a materialist.

A gospel song, “Michael, row the boat ashore,” seems to refer to Michael helping souls cross the waters from earth to Heaven.

Often when humans describe an experience with angels, they identify the heavenly being as Michael. Joan of • 66 •

And again, it was Michael who stayed the hand of Abraham when the patriarch was about to slay his son Isaac, though others say this was the work of Zadkiel. In Jewish mythology Moses saw the image of Michael in the burning bush. In The Book of Adam and Eve, Michael leads the angels to the Garden of Eden to look at the newly formed creation of Adam. Satan, while still among the rank of angels, says it should be man that bows before the messen- gers of God. For this arrogant stance, God threw Satan and his followers out of paradise. Later when Adam and Eve are also expelled, Michael teaches Adam to survive by farming. When Adam dies, Michael cleanses the first man’s soul.

  77. 77. r Jophiel and Christine s depiction of this golden halo. The Hindus recognized the crown chakra as a divine yellow seat of God’s wisdom and illumination. Through this chakra we are inspired with high- er knowledge and tap into the mind of God. There is not much written in traditional lore about Archangel Jophiel. He is known as the angel of beauty, for his name in Hebrew translates to “beauty of God.” It is gen- erally believed that Jophiel drove Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. Not surprisingly, Jophiel guarded the Tree of Knowledge, which played a crucial role in their expulsion from paradise. The metaphor for the beginning of the sepa- ration of man’s thought from the divine was when Eve tast- ed the fruit of knowledge, thus breaking the “at-one-ment” with God. When Eve bit into the apple she began to perceive both evil and good. The introduction of evil led man- kind to forget what absolute truth was. Everything would become relative, and man could no longer distinguish • 72 •
