Most terrestrials are angelic in origin but are at present ascenders. They descended eons ago to have a physical experience and then began to climb back up the ladder of consciousness. Many lightworkers however have come down expressly in this lifetime and for the purpose of leavening the loaf through their Ascension. (I acknowledge that others have contracted to have many lifetimes on Earth, to help terrestrials prepare for this Ascension.)
In this article, I’d like to look at the role the celestials have played in the enlightenment of terrestrials, described mostly by Archangel Michael though various channels.
Among humans known to have been enlightened by angels in scripture were Moses, Daniel, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Mohammed, and Alfred Lord Tennyson. (1)
In the case of Moses, “the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.” (2) When Moses came down from that encounter, he was enlightened.
Isaiah was also enlightened by angels; specifically, a seraph.
“In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple … and one [seraphim] cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. …
“Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
“And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.” (3)
It was also a seraph that enlightened Alfred Lord Tennyson as he stood on the shores of Africa. It’s so dramatic that I think it merits citing at length:
“I stood upon the Mountain which o’erlooks
The narrow seas….
“A curve of whitening, flashing, ebbing light!
A rustling of white wings! the bright descent
Of a young Seraph! and he stood beside me
There on the [mountain] ridge, and look’d into my face
With his unutterable, shining orbs. …
“Stagger’d beneath the vision, and thick night
Came down upon my eyelids, and I fell.
“With ministering hand he rais’d me up:
Then with a mournful and ineffable smile,
Which but to look on for a moment fill’d
My eyes with irresistible sweet tears…
“‘There is no mightier Spirit than I to sway
The heart of man: and teach him to attain
By shadowing forth the Unattainable….'” (4)
I once asked Archangel Michael to confirm the role the angels historically played in enlightenment.
Steve Beckow: We often say that we “get” enlightened, and we sometimes say that God graces us with enlightenment. But is it not the case that angels actually mediate enlightenment; in other words, bring enlightenment to us?
Archangel Michael: They assist in your enlightenment process, yes. That is one of the gifts to them and to you. (5)
Later in the same program, he expanded on the celestials who were involved in our enlightenment and what they do. He calls enlightenment the greatest of the Mother’s gifts.
Archangel Michael: The angels, particularly what you think of as the second and third spheres, but particularly the archangels, the angels, and the virtues, actually, play a great role in bringing that enlightenment that you asked for, that you seek, that you open your heart to receive, and acknowledge that is already within you. …
That is our joy, not simply to serve the Mother, but to bring and to be the bearers of her gifts, the greatest of which is enlightenment. (6)
What exactly do the celestials do in their work as the Mother’s agents of enlightenment? AAM continued:
Archangel Michael: What we do is in many ways we blow on the flame until it becomes an inferno. And their breath is the breath of wisdom and love and joy and sweetness.
But do not ever make the incorrect thinking, thinking that you do not have the essential element to bring enlightenment forward, because you do. You always have.
He then made a very significant statement, acknowledging that our karma yoga, our seva or selfless service was enough to bring us enlightenment. I know many people wonder if they should meditate (which is often called raja yoga) or follow other spiritual discipline as well as serving. But AAM says here that service is enough.
Archangel Michael: Now, let me give you an example quickly, if I may. Many of you — and particularly you, my beloved friend — travel with me and do remarkable service on my behalf.
Now, you think of this as service to me. And whether it is the building of the platform [the Golden Age of Gaia] or traveling with me to the war-torn areas of Afghanistan or Egypt or Korea, when you go in that service, you are also receiving the energy, the catalyst for greater enlightenment. So think of it as an infinity flow: ‘I do my service. I receive more enlightenment.'(8)
In a previous article we looked at the team of higher-dimensional beings bringing enlightenment to us, as the means of our Ascension. They join the celestials who have always mediated enlightenment for this planet’s inhabitants.
Tomorrow we’ll look more at how they do their work.
