“Be kind to strangers, because it’s the loving thing to do. Also, you never know – they could be angels.” ~ Scott Curran

“We are each of us angels with only one wing and we can only fly by embracing each other.” ~  Luciano de Crescenzo

Many of us have heard of angels, but have you had the opportunity to digest angel terminology? Below is a glossary of terms associated with angels that we hope you find helpful on your soul mission here on planet Gaia.

Adept. An initiate of the Great White Brotherhood of a high degree of attainment, especially in the control of Matter, physical forces, nature spirits and bodily functions.Affirmation. A positive statement, usually beginning with the name of God, “I AM,” that affirms and strengthens the qualities of God within oneself, helping to bring those qualities into physical manifestation.

Akashic records. The impressions of all that has ever transpired in the physical universe, recorded in the etheric substance and dimension known by the Sanskrit term akasha. These records can be read by those with developed soul faculties.

Alpha and Omega. The Divine Wholeness of the Father-Mother God affirmed as “the beginning and the ending” by the Lord Christ in Revelation. Ascended twin flames of the Cosmic Christ consciousness who hold the balance of the masculine-feminine polarity of the Godhead in the Great Central Sun of cosmos.

Angel. A divine spirit, a herald or messenger sent by God to deliver his Word to his children. A ministering spirit sent forth to comfort, protect, guide, strengthen, teach, counsel and warn.

Aquarian Age. The 2,150-year cycle following the age of Pisces. The age of Pisces gave us the understanding of God as the Son, exemplified by the sponsor of that age, Jesus Christ. The age of Aquarius brings us the awareness of God as the Holy Spirit and as the Divine Mother. It is sponsored by the Ascended Master Saint Germain and his divine complement, the Ascended Lady Master Portia. During this cycle, the opportunity will be given to humankind to apply the laws of freedom and justice, the science of precipitation and transmutation, and rituals of invocation to God that can bring in an age of enlightenment and peace such as the world has never known.

Archangel. The highest rank in the orders of angels. Each of the seven rays has a presiding archangel who, with his divine complement, or archeia, embodies the God consciousness of the ray and directs the bands of angels serving in their command.

Archeia (pl. archeiai). Divine complement and twin flame of an archangel.

Archangel Michael. The angel of the Lord who stands in defense of the Christ consciousness in all children of God; also known as Prince of the Archangels and Defender of the Faith. As the archangel of the first ray, Michael embodies the qualities of faith, protection, perfection and the will of God. He is the most revered angel in Jewish, Christian and Islamic scripture and tradition.

Archangel Raphael. Archangel of the fifth spiritual ray (green ray) of science, healing and vision. Archangel Raphael, together with Mother Mary, his divine complement, brings great healing energy to the evolutions of earth.

Ascended Master. Enlightened spiritual beings who once lived on earth, fulfilled their reason for being and have ascended and reunited with God in the ritual of the ascension. The ascended masters are the true teachers of mankind. They direct the spiritual evolution of all devotees of God and guide them back to their Source.

Ascension. The ritual whereby the soul reunites with the Spirit of the living God, the I AM Presence, through the acceleration by the sacred fire at the natural conclusion of one’s final lifetime on earth. It is the process whereby the soul, having balanced her karma and fulfilled her divine plan, merges first with the Christ Consciousness and then with the living Presence of the I AM THAT I AM. Once the ascension has taken place, the soul—the corruptible aspect of being—becomes the incorruptible one, a permanent atom in the body of God, free from the round of karma and rebirth.

Astral plane. A frequency of time and space beyond the physical, yet below the mental, corresponding to the emotional body of man and the collective unconscious of the race; the repository of mankind’s thoughts and feelings, conscious and unconscious. Because the astral plane has been muddied by impure human thought and feeling, the term “astral” is often used in a negative context to refer to that which is impure or psychic.

Aura. A luminous emanation or electromagnetic field that surrounds the physical body. The atmosphere surrounding and interpenetrating the four lower bodies of man and his chakras upon which the impressions, thoughts, feelings, words and actions of the individual are registered, including his karma and the records of past lives.

Avatar. From Sanskrit avatara, literally “descent.” A Hindu term for an incarnation of God on earth. The incarnation of the Word.

Bodhisattva. (Sanskrit, “a being of bodhi or enlightenment.”) A being destined for enlightenment, or one whose energy and power is directed toward enlightenment. A Bodhisattva is destined to become a Buddha but has forgone the bliss of nirvana with a vow to save all children of God on earth. An ascended master or an unascended master may be a bodhisattva.

Carnal mind. The human ego, human intellect and human will; the animal nature of man.

Causal Body. Interpenetrating spheres of light surrounding each one’s I AM Presence at spiritual levels. The spheres of the causal body contain the records of the virtuous acts we have performed to the glory of God and the blessing of man through our many incarnations on earth.

Central Sun. Whether in the microcosm or the Macrocosm, the central sun is the principal energy source, vortex, or nexus of energy interchange in atoms, cells, the heart center of man, amidst plant life and the core of the earth. The Great Central Sun is the center of cosmos, the point of integration of the Spirit-Matter cosmos, and the point of origin of all physical-spiritual creation.

Chakra. (Sanskrit, “wheel, disc, circle.”) Term used to denote the centers of light anchored in the etheric body and governing the flow of energy to the four lower bodies of man. There are seven major chakras corresponding to the seven rays, five minor chakras corresponding to the five secret rays, and a total of 144 light centers in the body of man.

Chela. (Hindi cela from Sanskrit ceta “slave” or “servant.”) In India, a disciple of a religious teacher or guru . A term used generally to refer to a student of the ascended masters and their teachings.

Chohan Lord or master; a chief. Each of the seven rays has a chohan who focuses the Christ consciousness of the ray for the earth and her evolutions.

Christ. (From the Greek Christos “anointed.”) Messiah (Hebrew, Aramaic “anointed”); “Christed one,” one fully endued and infilled—anointed—by the light (the Son) of God. The Word, the Logos, the second person of the Trinity.

Christhood. The individual expression of the universal Christ consciousness. On the spiritual path, the individual Christ Self, the personal Christ, is the initiator of the soul. When the individual passes certain initiations on the path of Christhood, he or she earns the right to be called a Christed one and gains the title of Son or Daughter of God.

Christ consciousness. The consciousness or awareness of the self in and as the Christ, the attainment of a level of consciousness commensurate with that which was realized by Jesus, the Christ. The Christ consciousness is the realization within the soul of that mind which was in Christ Jesus.

Christ Self. The Higher Self; our inner teacher, guardian, friend and advocate before God; the Universal Christ individualized for each of us; the Real Self of every man, woman and child, to which the soul must rise. The Christ Self is the mediator between the individual and God.

Cosmic Law. The law that governs mathematically, yet with the spontaneity of mercy’s flame, all manifestation throughout the cosmos in the planes of Spirit and Matter.
