Angels In My Attic

Request, using known expectations, help from Angels. Known Expectations? What is known and expected of Angels? Much has been written about Angels and some of it I have found to be true. I have read very little, just enough to learn some names. It was interesting. I started with a biblical text and determined that the lesson to be learned from that story, was that it was a book of lies. I then discovered the book of Enoch. If you would like to learn Angelic names you would be well advised to consider this book. I read a few pages and while I did, I had the experience of reading between the lines. It was very exciting. I believe much of that text is also lies and the value is in making that determination. To read what was not written on the page was… wow.

In my experience of Angels I have found that asking for their help is very powerful. There is much that they can do that is of great help. They are busy doing it anyway but in asking them, there is a shift of dynamics. Doing this increases the likelihood that they will make themselves known. Their world is spiritual and when we behave in a spiritual manner, spiritual landscapes begin to take shape. We begin to see the world, the spiritual world, of which we are a part. Being incarnate is quite distracting and it is tempting to ignore all matters spiritual. It is possible to see the spiritual world while being incarnate and in doing this see the spiritual beings that populate it.

So what can we expect of Angels? We can expect that, for the most part, they go unnoticed. Spirit is their form. Light passes through them. They are not bound by the natural laws, of our temporal reality, in a way that is recognizable to me. Zateel introduced itself to me many years ago. I noticed an image, beyond the wall of the room in which I sat, It was off the ground by four or five feet on the same plane as the floor of the room I was in. In noticing Zateel I invited the angel to be my companion, or more accurately, accepted the invitation being extended to me. Zateel hung out with me for three days and was always accompanied by three cherub. It was very cool. I would be minding the business of my day and suddenly, notice their presence. This experience also made clear that they choose whether or not to present themselves. It would seem that a requirement, or commitment must be met, in order to notice them. A state of being that is a shared place. A certain disposition needs to be achieved and maintained over time. If we allow this disposition to become corrupted we lose sight of them.

When I write of ‘known expectations’ I refer to these experiences. I first noticed and maintained active relations with angels when I was doing work that had me asking assistance of them. In making such a request, over time, I migrate to a disposition that is a shared place. Recognition eventually matures and inevitably we see each other.

Angelic Acquaintance

Angels it seems, in their role as guardians, rid our lives of demons. As recently as my post, Sarakiel The Demon Slayer, I wrote of foundation. There are three intersecting lines, Fate, Providence and Abundance. These three lines intersect at one point forming twelve right angles. Our imagination allows us to be at this point, or anywhere else. It is our choice. It is not necessary to see or to define this to be there. A person can be at or know this place, without any of the effort I put into it. This axis is essential to existence, our person belongs to it. We are free to wander wherever we like and neglect is often the state of foundation. Our relationship with foundation is determined entirely by choice. The texture of our thought. As we think; we are.

Angels rid providence, fate and abundance of demons and it is most helpful to ask them.  The demons distract us and we give them chase away from our foundation, even as we pretend we do not see them. In my experience, demons prefer to be unseen. Ignorance of them is fundamental to their influence. The lines of influence that are Fate, Abundance and Providence are miraculous. Not so much in a profound way but just matter of fact. It is here where creation and our person are bound as one. Miracle is the fact of our divine nature, it is ordinary, everyday and mundane. It is unusual for a person to truly appreciate their divine nature and the miraculous authority of foundation. It can not be done without the help of Angels. Only with their help can we clear perception, of distraction, and the lines of foundation restore our divine state.

Our shared sense of reality has no true foundation and it is tempting to ignore the divine and be a part of what seems the larger group. I am happier when I pursue my mystic sensibilities and what I can see for myself. I had forgotten the richness and reward of reliance on Angels, of asking them to help. It is this simple act of surrender that has been absent from my life.

Sarakiel the Demon Slayer

I have a page on my blog I call ‘Workshop’. It is private and only I see it. I futz around there forging affirmations or piercing together the condition I am in. Basic metaphysics. While working to see what I would do this morning I pieced together this sentence. Word by word, using a divining rod:

Present the alternative I avoided, by taking up with Indifference, as how I am now. Find the alternative using my Angelic acquaintance Sarakiel. Let Sarakiel slay the Demon, Indifference.

Apparently the way I do this is by making public my acquaintance with Sarakiel. When an Angel decides to introduce itself, you notice, and I have known Sarakiel for some time. There is a foundation that is created by three intersecting lines, Providence, Fate and Abundance. It creates a point and twelve right angles. Angle, Angel, it is all very confusing. Associated with these lines of influence there are Angels. Sarakiel is the guardian of my fate. Phanuel is the guardian of my providence and Uriel is the guardian of my abundance. I am sure the Angels go unnoticed by most of us but I see the spiritual world and when I allow myself to be at my center the Angels make themselves known. It takes only a slight pollution of thought to create a veil and ignorance rules the way. Just know I am working to rid myself again of this ignorance, my life is better that way.

I have a long-standing attitude of doing everything myself. My children, or anyone for that matter, will ask me, “Can I give you a hand with that?” Invariably the response is, “No I got it.” I am beginning to see it has to do with this Demon, Indifference. I wrote about Indifference in the post My Forth Grade Demon.

Let us see what Srakiel can do.
