Angelic Hierarchy? Is there such a thing?
A hierarchy of Angelic beings is traditional in some religions. It is an idea that is difficult to equate with unconditionally loving beings, surely to love unconditionally you cannot place another being, angelic or human or any other life form above, or below you?
I have thought and meditated for a long time on this one, and eventually realised the difference is vibrational. As with all life forms and not that those of higher or finer or purer vibration or frequency are better than those of a lower, denser or coarser vibration. Imagine trying to prove that steam was superior to water, which in turn was better than ice? The constituents of each are the same; the difference is the rate at which they vibrate. One is not better or worse than the other, they are all equally valuable and useful, and beautiful. But they have different uses; value and beauty; they have different affinities – areas in which they excel, or are naturally at home.
The same is true of all the other life forms we encounter on our journey. So what is the difference between Angels and other ‘energetic beings’?
Let’s start with what is an Angel. Angels are pure energy – they are all Soul or Heart. They have no corporeal [physical] body, although they can make themselves visible and appear to have a physical presence, they can even seem to physically touch us.
So how do they differ from other dis-incarnate Souls? I used to think that Angels have never inhabited a corporeal body, whereas human souls, and elemental souls, animal souls etc have. But there are, I have discovered, one or two exceptions to the never having incarnated rule. Indeed our journey North East is over lit by one.
The physical incarnation of souls other than humans is the subject of much debate. My own view is that an element of the ‘soul’ or the ‘over soul’ the universal aspect of our existence as a soul is present in all ‘sentient’ things, whether or not they appear to be animated, or ‘alive’. In this category I would place, the planet [although it is rotating and travelling through space on its orbit of the Sun]; rocks and minerals, metals [although they can become liquid when heated]. Plants are ‘rooted’ to the earth [usually, but there are exceptions, such as arboreal plants or those that float around on the ocean]; so usually sedentary in nature, yet they still move, and animals of course are as active as we are, that just leaves those elemental beings who inhabit other dimensions, and are visible only when we attune our own vibration to theirs. I believe they too have a form of physical being, albeit somewhat different to our own or that of animals. I suspect that their physical form will be aligned to that of the ‘area of expertise’ they are assigned to, i.e. Dryads will resemble the trees they care for.
Yet my belief is that they are all, minerals, plants, animals, elementals; also on an evolutionary soul journey and we are as much part of their journey as they are of ours.
