About AngelsBelief in angels has formed part of humanity’s spiritual quest down through the ages, and references to angels can be found in every religion, every culture. Interest in angels grows daily and their loving, supportive presence is unmistakable to sensitive adults and children, and to those seeking inner peace through spiritual development.
If you have been drawn to angels because you are looking for deeper meaning to offset the shallowness of modern living, or if you’ve been facing all manner of challenges recently, it may comfort you to know that you are certainly not alone.
In these early years of the 21st century, levels of consciousness have risen considerably, triggering ever greater tests for humankind generally - and lightworkers in particular. On an increasingly frequent basis, everyone is having to contend with unprecedented challenges on personal, relationship, family, organisation, national and international levels.
The bitter conflict, appalling injustice, inhuman disregard for decent behaviour, corporate greed . . ., and all the other very low energy manifestations of the confusion and discontent that currently abound are causing deep distress throughout our world.
And, on personal levels, the struggle to keep from being sucked down into and tainted by negativity can be exhausting.
As a species we have forgotten that there is an immense, expansive, cosmic pool of unconditional love; we’ve lost our connection and feel insecure in so many ways.
Vast numbers of human beings are trying to assuage these feelings of insecurity by acquiring more and more possessions, consuming more and more of the Earth’s finite resources and seeking to dominate others in all manner of ways - each with wide reaching harmful consequences.
But don’t despair, angels can help us re-connect to and be totally a part of the cosmic pool of love - for the good of all of creation. Angels are constantly working to promote peace and harmony here on Earth and they can help in all manner of ways - but only if asked!.
So work with them in connection with your own individual concerns, and also take time to enlist their support in helping to enlighten humankind to achieve lasting peace and harmony through unconditional love and understanding.
If you’d like to join the ever expanding band of enlightened souls who connect to and work with angels in a spirit of complete love and respect, angelic-healing.co.uk can help via their Angelic Healing Treatments; Angel Workshops; Angel Meditation and Healing Group; and/or Angelic Reiki Attunements and Training.

And in case you are asking:
What are Angels?and do I have to be of a particular religious persuasion to believe in them?
The following information provides an overview of a commonly held understanding of the Angelic Kingdom of Light. Please do not let this limit your own vision or understanding of Angels and the Spiritual Hierarchy in any way, especially as the increase in Earth’s vibrational rate and our consciousness is allowing unprecedented contact from the Angelic Realms, with more and more Angels and Ascended Masters revealing themselves to those who are ready.
Whatever your beliefs, it is not necessary to alter them in any way in order to communicate with the Angelic Kingdom of Light.
The word Angel is thought to derive from the Greek word angeloi meaning "messenger" and the Sanskrit word angiras meaning "divine spirit" and "courier".
Angels emanate from a different stream of consciousness to that of humans, from the dimension of original divine source.
Having the ability to open channels of divine communication, they are messengers of god/of all that is/of the absolute source and universal law . . . whatever resonates with your beliefs, whether such beliefs are of an organised religious nature or not.
Angels are messengers, guides and teachers and have many other tasks and missions. They have no physical bodies as they are beings of light and energy who occupy the non physical dimensions that co-exist alongside ours.
Being high spiritual beings of pure energy, they vibrate on such a high, fast level that, although they occupy the same space as humans, they are usually invisible to us.
As such we tend to recognise their presence via sensations or a subtle knowing. On the occasions when we are able to glimpse them more physically, we see them as incredibly bright beings – often manifesting in rapid movements of surreal shimmering light, flashes or patterns of brilliant colour.
Belief in angels has formed part of humanity’s spiritual quest down through the ages, and references to angels can be found in every religion, every culture.
Therefore, when we see angels in the most physical manifestation of which they are capable, they tend to take on whatever appearance best fits in with our ability to perceive them. Often this will be in human form - with wings - because that is how our memory has recorded them based on how they have been portrayed since time immemorial in art, literature and religious texts.
Whilst they may appear to us as male or female (and may indicate a male or female name) this is just to help us with our connection to them, since angels are androgynous. They are beyond the need for sexuality because their masculine and feminine energies are perfectly balanced. Also since they do not see themselves as separate from each other and all that is, they are not known to each other by individual names.
It is said that angels work on the golden ray of true unconditional love and wisdom and, certainly, angels have immeasurable love and compassion for us and for our planet as we work through these times of huge turbulence and change which are causing us so very much distress.
How many Angels are there?The answer is that there are infinite numbers of angels assigned to help, support and comfort; and, just as there are a great many different races on earth, there are many, many different kinds of angels:
Tiny angels whose job it is to look after small tasks, enormous angels with inconceivably vast energy and power who oversee universal projects. And in between there are myriads of angels with wide ranging responsibilities, in accordance with the level of enlightenment they have achieved. Some have been given titles such as Archangel, others have no particular title. However, each has a specific role and each varies in their spiritual growth.
Many people believe that angels are divided into groups (also known as ‘choirs’), each with a specific area of interest.
According to Dionysius the Areopagite, Bishop of Athens and disciple of the apostles, there are 3 categories of angels with 3 orders in each:
The first category – said to operate closest of all to the divine source energy – are known as “heavenly counsellors” and comprise:
In the first order, the Seraphim whose job it is to maintain balance, alignment and movement between celestial bodies i.e. planets, stars etc. The Seraphim are the most highly evolved of all angels and are known to work with sound and to conduct the music of the spheres.
The second order contains the Cherubim who are true lightworkers. They operate as guardians of the universe’s light and colour energy. They help to direct and transform all light which streams in from the sun, moon and stars so that it can be received in places where it is most needed. Cherubim also help to maintain the bridge of light between higher and lower vibrational planes.
Earth is a plane of low vibration and our bodies represent the essential protective spacesuit that enables us to function on this earth plane. Our soul and spirit have higher vibrational rates but direct, divine light is far too intense for our body to sustain. The bridge of light that the cherubim help to maintain enables us to experience safely higher vision, extra sensory perception and mystical awareness. Meditation and spiritual development activities help to strengthen our energy bodies so that we can have safe encounters with higher vibrational beings on the bridge of light that spans the higher and lower planes of vibration.
The third order contains the Thrones who are the angelic overseers of planets. Each planet has it own throne angel. The Throne Angel who oversees earth works in conjunction with the Seraphim to keep our planet on course and in proper relationship to other planets. The Earth Throne also ensures appropriate balance between species and endeavours to prevent - or to modify the impact of - cataclysmic disasters such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, major floods or widespread drought.
Those comprising the second category of the Angelic Kingdom of Light are known as the “heavenly governors” and include:.
In the first order, the Dominions (or dominations) who are the advisers, counsellors, supporters and teachers of all evolving angels. In particular they assist each Guardian Angel in looking after the wellbeing of the individual to whom they have been assigned to care for throughout each of their incarnations.
The second order, the Virtues, are the listeners who respond to prayers and requests for healing. They direct appropriate concentrations of divine energy to specific areas, situations or towards particular individuals.
The third order contains the Powers who inspire human consciousness or higher ideals and who also oversee the rhythms of birth, death and rebirth. Spiritual teachings often refer to the ‘akashic records’, to the ‘collective unconscious’ to ‘morphic resonance’ and latterly to the ‘zero point energy field’. All of these are ways of expressing the belief that every thought, word and action creates waves of energy which affect all other occupants of this planet and indeed the cosmos, as well as being subtly recorded in the collective memory bank. Those who believe in reincarnation maintain that there are collective and personal akashic records. The personal version records each soul’s evolutionary journey. The collective version holds the imprint of all human experience and learning. The Powers are the keepers of the akashic records, guardians of the collective unconscious and instigators of morphic resonance.
The third realm of angels is known as “the messengers” and comprises:
In the first order are the Principalities whose role is to oversee and guard nations and cities, as well as large groups and organisations.
In the second order are the Archangels. Archangels are mighty emissaries of love and compassion. They are extremely powerful angels with specialist functions, who oversee the other angels and who help us in many ways. In accordance with spiritual law, though, they cannot come to our aid unless we specifically request them to do so. It is generally believed that there are 7 archangels although some people claim there are only 4 and others say there are many more than 7.
For the purpose of this entry, we provide an overview of Archangels Michael, Jophiel, Chamuel, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel and Zadkiel. Please note that the references to some as male and others as female merely indicates the masculine or feminine energy with which they are associated since angels are neither male nor female.
Archangel Michael –is said to lead the archangels and is in charge of the order of angels known as the virtues. He oversees the life purpose of lightworkers and his main function is to rid earth and her inhabitants of fear. Archangel Michael has inspired leaders and lightworkers since time immemorial. He has a fiery energy which is unmistakable, and he is usually associated with the sword of truth, and with cutting through unhealthy ties. He provides clear guidance and direction whenever we feel lost or stuck in respect of our career or life purpose.
Archangel Jophiel – is the patron of art and beauty. She uses her might and power to inspire and light up the mind so that we become open minded and wise. She helps us to think beautiful thoughts, see and appreciate beauty around us and therefore to attract and manifest more beauty in every aspect of our life. Archangel Jophiel has an uplifting positive energy that promotes artistic projects and helps create beauty at home, work and in our relationships.
Archangel Chamuel - is considered a powerful leader of the powers, the angels who oversee protection of the world from fearful and other lower energies. So, if you are fearful about world events, call upon Archangel Chamuel for intervention, protection, and comfort. Archangel Chamuel is very kind and loving and expands the flame of love in your heart, promoting compassion and forgiveness. He works with us to build strong foundations for our relationships and careers so that they are long lasting, meaningful and healthy.
Archangel Gabriel – has a dual role:
Archangel Raphael – the Archangel of travellers and healers, Raphael is loving, kind and gentle. A powerful healer, his healing powers can be called upon by healers in connection with treatments on humans and animals. Archangel Raphael also helps would-be healers with their education and subsequent practice.
Archangel Uriel – is regarded as one of the wisest of Archangels and directs the angels of peace and helps soothe conflict in order to find serenity. He can be relied upon for intellectual information, practical solutions and creative insight and has been credited with bringing the kabbalah, and the knowledge and practice of alchemy, to humankind. He illuminates situations and gives prophetic information and warnings.
Archangel Zadkiel – directs the angels of joy and mercy. He is considered to be the Archangel of tolerance, diplomacy and benevolence and promotes awareness of the divine light within ourselves and others, engendering feelings of compassion and forgiveness.
In the third order of “the messengers” are the Angels who have no specific titles. These are the angels with the broadest of perspectives possessing, as they do, the most universal knowledge of Planet Earth and her inhabitants. This order of angels are able to come closest to our earthly vibrations and they bring us laughter, joy, harmony, peace, love, synchronicity and many other high energy qualities.
Guardian Angels form part of this order. Guardian Angels are our personal protectors – especially at times when life is threatened. At birth we each have a Guardian Angel assigned to us who remains with us throughout each of our lives.
Except at times of extreme danger, your Guardian Angel will not intercede as you work through crucial learning experiences, however difficult these may be. Be assured however that, throughout, you are surrounded with your Guardian Angel’s total love and support.
If you are open to receive guidance, your Guardian Angel will indicate perfect ways to deal with each life lesson.
The extent to which we are aware of angelic presence has much to do with how close to us we are prepared to allow them to get. Often it is very difficult for angels to enfold us in their love because of the almost impenetrable barrier we often set up via the turbulent vibrations of our emotions.
Angels help any and all who ask for help, irrespective of that individual’s beliefs, spiritual development or lifestyle. They do so because it is part of their role in opening the channels of divine communication and in promoting peace.
Angels are always waiting to help and will respond rapidly whenever you ask for their assistance - so long as the help you seek is for the highest, greatest good. If, however, you are asking for assistance in connection with revenge (or any other low vibrational emotion) you will not receive the assistance you are seeking.
So, it is commonly believed that there are 9 orders of angels, all serving a different function.
And then there are the Ascended Masters, thousands of them. Ascended Masters are powerful, dynamic beings - highly evolved souls and great spiritual teachers from various dimensions and planes of existence. They are Masters who have served several incarnations in the lower heavens (planets) teaching the Cosmic Law of the Universe. They have ascended back into the presence of God/the Creator/Source and from these higher dimensions they continue to teach spiritual truths to a wide variety of worlds including our own.
Ascended Masters work closely with the Divine and with the Spiritual Hierarchy. They offer themselves as high vibrational guides to any humans who are ready to work with them in steering Earth in the direction of peace and harmony by recognising truth and achieving balance.
Each Ascended Master brings different energies to humanity and to our planet. The more conscious we become and the more aware we are of these representatives of the Divine the more easily we can access them consciously and serve the greater good by working with them.
Although existing in a different dimension, Ascended Masters are able to connect directly to the trials and tribulations of our world since the majority of them have previously incarnated on Earth as humans.
The lives and teachings of the many Ascended Masters remain an inspiration to all.
