In the legends of the Middle East there exists an ancient story, which concerns the role of Angels appointed by the Creator. The tale tells how the Infinite One made a statue of clay in the image of his or her own likeness, and asked the Soul to enter it. But the Soul refused, for to be captured thus meant sure imprisonment, and the soul’s essence was to love inclusively, moving through the cosmos in pure joy, liberated by supernal ecstasy.

Through infinite wisdom, the Creator asked the Angelic Kingdom to sing such seraphic music, and the Soul became so enchanted, so deeply stirred by the magic of this celestial sound, that the Soul agreed to enter the body of clay, and so began the embodiment of Adam Kadmon – so began human life.

Angels and Celestial Spirits have always existed – in the pages of sacred and mystical texts, in the minds and hearts of ordinary human beings, and in their ubiquitous acts that have lovingly supported humanity. Wherever they may be, whatever form they may take, and whenever they appear – Angels, as messengers of the Divine are suffused with the powerful force of love, created through the furnace of the cosmos. Thus, they are encoded with the passion and praise formed from the very breath of the Creator. This quickens their hearts to live out the beauty of the great song of the Soul, the harmony that once enchanted humanity into existence.

Since the Italian Renaissance, Angels have been painted as human beings with wings, although I’ve always seen Angels as Orbs. Seen that is, since a remarkable encounter with twelve such light beings on Glastonbury Tor during the Harmonic Convergence of 1987. In those early days, in our search for spiritual intelligence away from the confines set by oppressive religious establishments, it was extremely unusual to see circles of plasma energy. Whereas during our current era, through digital photography and the viral social networks conjured by the magical allure of the ‘internet’, we are regularly presented with these extraordinary phenomena. Indeed, in one recent video I’ve seen, two golden orbs create a Crop Circle.

Not surprisingly my conversation in those early days, about these brilliant balls of light, was sparse – particularly as my unseen guides had requested discretion. Until that is, I read the early Christian mystics in a capacious study of Angelology, and found that Angels were believed to be orbs of light suffused with God’s love and splendor. At least so believed Thomas Aquinas, St. John of the Cross and Hildegard von Bingen.

To this day, we gaze in awe and wonder at the undiminished beauty of the great Painter’s renditions of Angelic form. Works that are mostly based on the Old Testament stories of Angels, as we see in Ezekiel Chapter One, when Angels appear to the prophet with four faces: man, lion, ox and eagle, possessing several wings.

The great painters of the differing renaissance periods in Italy, England and France, gave us lavish depictions of the beauty of the Angelic host. Indeed, during the nineteenth century’s expansion of entrepreneurial wealth, and the burgeoning success of western commerce, men and women viewed the waste of industrialization through the disenchanted faces of certain human angels. Namely, as the machines tore into the belly of Mother Earth, as the factory furnaces polluted her lofty skies, Edward Burne- Jones the great Victorian painter wrote:

“When they build another machine, I will paint another Angel.”

The Twelve Angels of Atlantis work with me, and in order to take their wonderment further into the embodiment of we humans, they accord themselves archetypal traits that penetrate the very membrane of our individual and collective consciousness.These archetypes can be seen as keys to our consciousness, and illustrate aspects of our own ‘personality’. For example, if we gaze at the lapis lazuli-orb of Gabriel the Divine Messenger, a sacred oracle opens through the lineage of the wisdom traditions, as though from God’s voice itself.

Thoth was regarded in Egypt as the ‘Scribe Messenger of the Gods’, and then subsequently appears three thousand years later as the Greek ‘Hermes’, and the Roman ‘Mercury’ – beings that brought messages from the Gods to humanity, often engaging in spectacular acts to save humans from peril. For Angels are messengers of God, and love for the sake of love through the consciousness of divine grace. Therefore, they only respond when we request of them their sweet love and guidance.

To bring Angelic love more directly into our minds and bodies, I’ve produced a best-selling Atlantean Oracle, a book, and a series of Icons depicting the twelve Angels. These inspirations communicate to us as though Gabriel the Divine Messenger, who brought the Koran to Mohammad, and the annunciation to Mary and Elizabeth, was literally speaking to us. The witness of this Angel reminds us of how inspired action may be wrought by the sacred jewels such as love, grace, and wisdom.

Similarly, we may gaze on the violet-orb of Michael the Cosmic Leader, who overshadowed Osiris the ‘Magnanimous Leader’. Osiris, with Michael’s aid, led the Egyptian people through a golden age of prosperity in pre-dynastic times. Then, later emerged as the Greek Zeus, and the Roman Jupiter, helping our evolution through establishing the notion of ‘personal sovereignty’ and the I AM PRESENCE. For Michael inspires the essence of leadership, enchantment, patience and the ability to transmute challenges into divine power.

In a flash the Angels take on a new clarity and might, for if we allow their beauty and love to penetrate our lives, we also allow an old grace to ease our path into the discovery a new virtue. Who wouldn’t wish to be ravished thus, and at this time of unprecedented change?
