| In that our Earth histories have been laced with distortions, limitations, out-and-out lies and rumors regarding beings of the Angelic Kingdom, it would be wise indeed for you to simply put aside what you might have learned about them from past Earthian histories.
Of course, the very best information you could possibly have on the Angelic Kingdom (Dyhani Chohans in Sanskrit/Tibetan) would be that which you have found within yourself from your direct experiences. What is being presented here is a measured amount of information in order to assist you to gain that personal experience.
Throughout most of this incarnation I lived in rather deep denial of the existence of Angels and Archangels, putting it very aside as religious hooey and mumbo-jumbo. Perhaps this served me well in the end in that I did not have to undo a mess of belief-system dogmas in order to arrive at valid inner perceptions and experiences.
I arrived at the experience rather innocently. Several years ago I was a student of the MerKaBa Meditation and did the meditation faithfully every day. Through the months occasionally I would notice that I was being watched, and when I would put my attention on the watcher, poof, it would be gone.
One day it did not poof. The being remained when I became conscious, again, of its presence. It was an Archangel! And I can rather honestly tell you this had a very deep, profound and lasting effect on me. I engaged the being in communication and learned that it had no name—an Archangel with no name. Over the next 2 weeks I attempted to discern a name and finally arrived at "The Noname Archangel." Instantly when I came to this conclusion, the being arrived in presence and very directly informed me, "No. No name at all." Well, alright, so I learned to live with this no-name reality.
From that time my experience and perceptions of and with these marvelous beings expanded. They are truly here to help. That is what they do. Each has specific jobs as assigned directly by Creator. They are the direct emanation of Creator and when you are dealing with an Archangel you are dealing with a direct aspect of Creator. Angels and Archangels simply are not cute little fluff-balls of human-caressing puppy love as depicted in Christmas songs. You are dealing here with multi-dimensional quantum-physics consciousness and intelligent-energy accelerators—the powerhouses of creation whose benevolence and velvet-smoothness are quite beyond human ideation (but not beyond conscious experience). I have even seen a statue of an Angel depicted in the form of a winged human male, young and pretty of course, flying away carrying off a young and pretty sexually surrendered human female. I guess he was carrying her off to some Kublai Khan pleasure palace. Well, creation does not flow from ideas of human sexuality up the Divine ladder regardless of the distortions added to kundalini teachings.
And let us dispel something here and now. Angels and Archangels simply do not "fall". This distortion has been taught in our past and simply is not valid. Archangels are endowed with Divine Will and only act within the will of Divinity. As far as "falling" is concerned, it is us Free Will beings who do the falling by our own powers of choice . . . so let's get on with extracting ourselves from this mess we call "reality".
One of the best teachings I have come across in modern times regarding the Archangels comes from one of our Ascended Masters, Djwhal Khul, sometimes known as "The Tibetan". Djwhal uses the Tree of Life as a point of reference. The Tree of Life is an aspect of the broad spiritual science known as Sacred Geometry. The Tree is found within the Flower of Life which is found within the Flower of Being. (Click here to see graphics below.) The study of Sacred Geometry is effectively a study of the Archangel Metatron.
This information from Djwhal Khul was channeled through one of the clearest channels we have had in modern times, Janet McClure. The following is a quote:
Djwhal Khul, through Janet McClure
We are going to talk about the ten Archangels that fit very well on the Cabalistic Tree of Life. These Archangels each have a propensity for one of the aspects of the tree. As I have said in the past, this tree really divides up all of the aspects of Creation, and you can look at anything you want, to analyze it. Right now we are looking at it as Creation: and each aspect, or Sephirah, as they are called, as a particular planet and a particular Archangel associated with it.
I think you will enjoy these beings we are about to discuss, the Archangels. We are going to make them seem as if they are real folks because they are, really. They have specific duties and specific likes and dislikes and individual characteristics, although they are not evolving consciousness as we in the human evolutionary consciousness are.
Some of you have worked with these Archangels, and some have channeled them; if not in this life, then in previous ones. They are available to humanity and used by humanity in specific ways to understand Creation and to aid them.
Now, the Archangels do not work alone. In a sense, they direct a great host of beings—the Angels. You could say that the Archangel is the director and the Angels take directions and follow them; they do not do any interpretation themselves. It is like a large corporation; the president interprets the overall program given by the board of directors, and the various departments heads follow the directions given.
The Archangels are direct manifestations of the Creator and have no free will as we have. They are like the right arm of the Creator, and like our right arm, they do not have any will separate from their Source. Now, these direct manifestations—the Archangels—are not "becoming"; they are not growing, except in the sense that everything grows as the Creator grows. They have been created directly for these particular tasks and they do them magnificently. They do them without failure, without difficulty, without resistance, without false beliefs, without any needs, desires, or wants of their own. They serve the Creator exactly as they have been programmed to do, and at the end of a specific time in creation they will be pulled back into the Source and they will cease to exist. They do not go beyond that point.
At some other time in the future, the Angelic Kingdom may be different. It may be doing some other things. Right now it is allowing all of you to receive the benefits of its service to the Creator. The Creator has set it up to allow you to share in this manner. Their destiny is not, like you, to become a Co-Creator. It is to serve the Creator exactly as they are serving Him now and have been created to serve.
Let us begin with the Archangel who is at the very top of the tree. His name is Metatron and he is known as the Archangel of the Presence. If you will note on the tree, Metatron is at Kether at the top of the tree and Sandalphon is at Malcuth at the bottom of the tree. These two work together frequently. Isn't it interesting that at the top and the bottom of the tree are so closely connected? It is for balance, and focus in the physical.
Metatron is a direct representative of the creator who acquaints individuals with their divinity, allows divinity to shine through him, brings that divinity through the steps of Creation, and allows it to manifest. He is spring-boarding the energy at the point of
creation into a manifested state.
All right, at this level, Kether, what is there to be distributed? Light, of course, the beautiful pure direct Light from the Source. He begins the distribution of the Light to various subdepartments of Kether and then down the tree toward Sandalphon.
Metatron can be utilized to attune you to the Source if you have some hesitation approaching the Source directly. You will still get the essence of the purity of the Source, but won't be so overawed by such overpowering all-knowingness. It is his responsibility and his privilege to represent the Source. Sometimes he does it at (Planetary Hierarchy) Board meetings. He is a special friend of mine.
Metatron is standing among us and he is glowing. In answer to a question about whether he had a part in the building of the Great Pyramid, he says, "Yes, I did; it was created to be a great initiation temple, and at the time it was finished, I placed within it the purity that goes with this high area." Metatron teaches classes on the inner planes and he has taught extensively in the area of using Light within physical manifestation to raise the consciousness of the particular area. That is one of his specialties, and that is why his is so closely associated with Sandalphon. Bringing into the awareness of people the great Light of the Source is truly his responsibility, whether it is perceived at the very Source or on a stepped-down level.
The next Archangel we are going to discuss is associated with the aspect of the tree called Chokmah, and his name is Ratziel. You will feel a complete difference in his presence. Since he is not quite as close to the Source, the vibration is not quite as fine, but it is very intense. Within this aspect of the tree are all potentialities.
Ratziel holds a focus of all potentialities and works continually to bring the now-realized conditions of existence into fuller and fuller creation. He allows the energies to come forth with all potentialities, to burst forth in as full and encompassing a manner as evolution will permit. He seeks always to enlarge creation and its manifestation, focuses the full creative effort, and evolves it as the Creator's Cosmic Plan requires. He seeks to bring forth the progressiveness and evolvement that has been gained through the experience during manifestation.
This means that when creation has evolved to a certain point, he can bring into manifestation a certain potential, but not before then. So he is constantly looking everywhere to see, "Is this coming in now; can I begin doing this?" Can you imagine existing to see which things are ready to evolve? Isn't that quite an assignment? He is very much involved in timing, not from an Earth sense, from an evolvement sense.
He is looking at us now. The Earth is doing well. It is one of the heaviest vibrations, but it won't be after the New Age. He will be able to bring into existence things that have not been here before. But remember, he is not concerned primarily with the Earth, but with all of existence, with all potential. He may direct an unlimited number of Angels to do whatever is needed. He can have all the help he needs to do his job.
The next Archangel is connected with the third aspect of the tree, Binah, and his name is Tzaphkiel. I've been interested in him for a long time because it seems to me that he has been changing. That is because existence is changing, shifting a little, and as it does, he changes. It is bringing him closer to Metatron, for one thing, in his area of work. This third aspect of the three aspects in the spiritual area of the tree is changing in focus. This Archangel is changing direction to focus, as never before, existence at the other levels (mental, emotional and physical). He is focusing this change for the New Age. He brings forth as required the specifics to begin the intent of the Creator. There is much joy and love in this one.
The fourth aspect of the tree is called Chesed, and the Archangel associated with it has another wonderful name, Tzadkiel. He is the foundation—not in the sense that you walk on, but in the sense that you depend on—of the Archangels. Now, if you are going to build a universe, you have to have plans, and you get very practical about it, don't you? He can do that. Although at this level he is not sitting down and drawing plans and writing up specifications in the physical, he is bringing the plans into the causal area, the higher mental, where they can be picked up for practical use. Tzadkiel is also a very visual manifestation of the love aspect of the Creator. I certainly have
worked with him a lot and he is one that teaches a lot. He is very helpful in evolving
consciousness. When you take the class called "Creating a Universe," he is going to
Now we come to the fifth aspect which is called Geburah, and the Archangel is Khamael. He also is a good friend and a marvelous being—quite regal looking, quite powerful looking. There is much energy there, much serene confidence—a figure of authority, but in the divine sense. He is able to give directions with complete confidence, dedication, and understanding; and those directions are followed, my friends, believe me. Now, this particular Archangel has centered within his essence the energy of Creation; and if there is a need for focusing more energy at a specific time, he or his department will become involved in doing this.
(Note: Gautama Siddhartha, known on Earth as The Buddha, worked extensively with Khamael. Khamael is known as The Archangel of Perfection.)
Right now is one of the times when more energy is required. Why? Because of the changes that are coming about, more energy coming in at specific levels (such as the Earth), and he is very involved in the change of focus that is going on and the means by which this will be accomplished. His energy is controlled for the purpose of accomplishing his goal, which is to unify the energy of the tree of creation and bring about a productive universe.
The sixth aspect of the tree is Tiphareth and the Archangel you all know, because it is Michael. Michael is well-known to humanity as the defender of the just. He defends people's right to attune to the true identity, to partake in the trueness of creation, which involves free will. He will go all the way to defend your right of your own free will. However, if you call on him for justice, please recognize what you are doing. He can see some fine distinctions that you cannot, and you are going to get exactly that; but it may not be just what you thought you were asking for.
There is a polarity in existence, and everything struggles to balance completely. If existence swings one way or the other, he is there. We perceive it as defending, it it is truly balancing.
The seventh aspect of Netzach, and the Archangel is Auriel. He has the diplomatic ability that can smooth over trouble spots in creation, and often does. He focuses the most harmonious level of the feeling part of creation, and by attuning to him, you too can participate in the harmonious aspect of his area. If he were here on Earth, we would call him a courtly gentleman, but of course he is not a human being, but one who encompasses the smooth representation of harmony. He is able to harmoniously settle areas of disagreement between close associates. He does this with his energy; his harmonious energy causes the situation to become less tense.
Now, if you called upon him for aid in a personal relationship, it might not solve the problem completely—you have to do that for yourself—but the particular moment of tenseness could be smoothed by his harmonious energy. After that you should work to remove the causes for this disharmonious condition.
Auriel has an overall view and directorship over every artist that ever lived—every musician, every painter, every dancer; but not in a personal sense. He is involved in an art movement within a country as it begins to flow. Remember Italy in the Middle Ages, you can bring about, in an esoteric sense, a harmony that will be very helpful. The art movement here is a reflection of wonderful celebrations we have for the Creator on the higher planes. Auriel is responsible many times for arranging these celebrations.
The next aspect, number eight, is Hod and we have here the Archangel Raphael. All of you know him very well. He is intellectually curious about absolutely everything. He is a logical focus that can deduce the specific ways of bringing about what has been outlined and energized. Now, this is a specific in the area of logic. Can you attune to it? He is one that perceptively views creation, sees beyond the obvious, and aids others to do so also. If you are seeking to understand more in the mental area, calling upon him would be very productive, very helpful. He has the beauty of a great intellect and the resonance of understanding that goes to the heart of a matter.
Raphael is a beautiful, great being. He is involved in logically deciding the best way to accomplish most everything, including how to bring in the most appropriate type of higher consciousness to the Earth. All of us in the Hierarchy (and we are not yet perfect, as we keep telling you) can call on him when we have doubts about the best way to accomplish our objectives. Archangels don't have doubts. They have figured it all out within their own knowingness, they know what will work; they just assure us and we believe them. It is very helpful.
The next sephira is Yesod (number nine) and the wonderful being of Gabriel is the Archangel of this aspect. He is one that ever seeks to clarify existence; to focus the Divinity from the heights into the physical, and conversely, to allow those who live in the physical to focus and to transcend through him to the heights, to the Divinity within. He thus stands at a very important point, seeking always to allow himself to cut through the illusion of Earth living and to aid others to do so. This is a part of his service.
It is very interesting that Gabriel is known as the one who has a horn. What does that say to you? Gabriel deals with the astral plane, the part of creation that is very close to the physical, but isn't there yet. He says, "I am going to blow my horn here so that you can find me." He is announcing that you must penetrate the astral illusion and see what is truly there on the astral plane, because it will be coming into manifestation in the physical. If we see what is coming, then we will know what needs to be worked with. Gabriel then focuses all of creation—the creative activity that has gone on in aspects one through eight—and then passes it on to Sandalphon, the Archangel of the physical.
Malcuth is aspect number ten, and its Archangel is Sandalphon. He is probably the most responsible Archangel that I have ever met. Try to feel him. You feel a solidness about this one. You could rely on him forever. He is very actively involved now with the New Age. He is directly connected to Kether. He works closely with Michael, Auriel, Gabriel and Raphael. These four Archangels are called the Angels of the Four Corners, and are a unique representation of the focus of energies before they come into the physical.
Sandalphon is always working with the Earth energies, transforming them to the highest level possible, seeking now to guide the Earth and its direct manifestation into a more smooth-flowing path as we move forward into the New Age. He focuses the Seventh Ray and seeks to implant it more securely on Earth now.
As a general rule, the Archangels are not assigned as personal teachers, but there are some exceptions. However, we may learn from any of them, and we study with them.
All of you have gone to classes where these great ones teach. Depending upon your purposes, you can call upon any one of them to help you, but be sure that it is within the scope of their responsibility to address the problem that you desire help with. They can help you within the framework of their job area.
Most of the time you are your own teacher—your soul and your Monad are very capable of directing you. You really don't need anyone else. Then, of course, you have teachers on the inner planes also. Mainly, the Archangels teach evolving consciousness through classes on the inner planes. Then, when you evolve to the level of the Fifth Initiation, Archangels take orders from you.
You may wish at some time to call upon the Archangels of the Four Corners (Michael, Auriel, Raphael and Gabriel) for protection. You could say that in the manifested world, they stand ever ready to guard you against the polarity of existence. I don't like to call it negativity, but it is the type of energy that is more disassociated from the Creator. By invoking their protection in a specific way, you can be protected from being invaded by those who have separated from the Divine.
Thank you, my friends.
Information regarding the Tree of Life has been with us from ancient times and comes forward to us today in the Cabala (Quaballa, Kabala, Kaballa, etc.). Each of the 10 components of the Tree are called a Sephira, and all 10 are called the Sephiroth. The terms "Sephira" and "Chakra" are both referring to the same spiritual phenomena within the personal and Universal Self. When activated, they become the creation core of your Lightbody.
The writers of the Cabala made provisions for the eventual arrival of the Mahatma energies particularly in the descriptions of the "Ain Soph", which defined as "The Unknowable". Yes, it was not knowable in those days as the energies and presences simply were not yet here to experience. Now they are here in this present relative Now, and quite wonderfully knowable.
The Tree of Life is a part of Sacred Geometry and is a sub-division of the Flower of Life. Information regarding Sacred Geometry is now readily available to man. Drunvalo Melchizedek and Dan Winter are two of the leading teachers of Sacred Geometry. You may visit them on the internet. I have another website at http://www.chapeltibet.cnchost.com/ct/ct1.html which I constructed during the days of my journies through Sacred Geometry.
The Flower of Life of which the Tree is a sub-division looks like:
F l o w e r o f L i f e
A most beautiful geometry indeed. It has been reported that this figure has now been found on every continent of the Earth. Ancient buildings contain many wall drawings of the Flower of Life.
If we project the Tree of Life onto the Flower of Life we find an exact match! (Sacred Geometry is a fascinating study). This is what it looks like:
The Tree of Life Projected Into the Flower of Life
Now what does all this have to do with Archangels? The Flower of Life is itself a sub-division of a larger figure called The Flower of Being, which is a release of the encircling restrictions of the Flower of Life and its subsequent expansion. The figure of the Flower of Being, which could be drawn out forever, is the resonance manifestation of the supreme Archangel, Metatron.
This is a 2-dimensional view and is actually 3 dimensional. What is seen here as circles are actually spheres with Metatron's Kiss at the exact center of it all.
If you have ever been curious as to how Chakras come into existence, at every point where the periphery of a sphere touches the center of another sphere, there is a Chakra. Metatron becomes quite a dramatic figure when these Chakras are placed on the Flower of Being (or the Flower of Metatron).
Now that we have established all this, let's get into the meditation which all this is about: direct, personal experience and spiritual learning from within Self. The next section of this website deals with a direct meditation wherein you will invite, directly, specific Archangels into your chakras/spiritual centers. This is a very brave thing to do and requires a bit more spiritual courage than a human usually believes he or she has. Remember, the information of the Kabala/Quaballa/Cabala/etc. has been floating around within Earthian inscriptions for quite some time, and, sadly enough, there is a personality trait rampant upon Earth regarding "commonality" and an idea that creation is a fixed condition emanating from some void or "nothing", when that is not how creation works at all. Creation is alive, sentient, creative and ever evolving, creating anew, integrating, filtering, completing and melding/integrating into New Beginnings.
What IS today at Creation Source is not what was. Spiritual-consciousness evolution on Earth (well, actually, it's taking place universally) has taken a huge leap in just the last several decades so whole new teachings are coming in and being revealed. Today we may "think" of Archangels as Source Creator's creation centers with our chakra (soul) system being resonances from that point of Creation.
