Did you think that angels are just messengers, a body of spiritual beings intermediate between God and men? Oh no. it is much more complicated than that. It transpires that there are in fact nine orders of angels.
1 Seraphim who have six wings
2 Cherubim who have four faces
3 Thrones or Ophanim take the form of a wheel within a wheel, their rims covered with hundreds of eyes.
1 Dominions - divinely beautiful humans with a pair of feathered wings
2 Virtues who supervise the movements of the heavenly bodies in order to ensure that the cosmos remains in order
3 Powers or Authorities who are the warrior angels
1 Principalities or Rulers who oversee groups of people
2 Archangels - guardian angels of nations and countries
3 Angels - last but not least?
Oh, and so as not to be confused please do note that chubby male children with optional wings are in fact putti and not cherubim.
But then again, from the great wide web: "Angels are pure intelligences, not material, but limited, so that they have location in space, but not extension". Wait, no extension, not material? What about those six wings / four faces?
We need to look deeper. More internet researches reveal: "Angels are beams of an ethereal light energy consciousness and within these beams of light are shards of energy that transforms themselves into light beings; these are known as transcendent ethereal beings which can transform themselves into a reality that can connect with each individual soul/spirits energy".
Because of course, "It’scientifically proven that everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies".
And of course, "If you would like to hear, feel, and see the angels, you need to raise your vibration to become one with their energy".
Does one need a tuning fork?
Perhaps a clue here: "the light waves for the seven angel colors vibrate at different electromagnetic energy frequencies in the universe, attracting the angels that have similar kinds of energy."
Ah - this has something to do with a rainbow. Now we are getting somewhere. So that is where these angels are to be found - dancing around, pinheads optional, with the leprechauns guarding the pot of gold at Rainbow's end.
Next time, starting with rainbow bridges and Thor, and the gods of Asgard, we can look at different conflicting definitions of gods and the afterlife. Or do you just want to take that as homework for yourself?

I called this blog "Personal Power Now" and I would hope that at least some of you, in response of what I have to offer, can significantly improve your life. I say this in relation to this post because I truly believe that if you really take in the following recording then this could become for you a personal transformational experience.
It is by Albert Ellis, the founder of Rational Emotive Therapy (RET) and is 10 minutes long. I will have more to say on RET in subsequent posts.
To reinforce the above the essence of the required shift is this:
1) Guilt blocks self-awareness
2) Self awareness is needed for change
3) To facilitate self-awareness we need to learn to be self-accepting
4) Accepting self responsibility kickstarts the process by personally taking on the role of shifting our paradigm from one of guilt to that of self-acceptance
5) A key is to realise that all of us, you and me, and everyone else always do the best we can do at the time.
So just let go of the guilt, move into self acceptance, use self awareness to change, and watch your life transform. Simples.

Do you believe that being "perfect" gives you control over how people feel about you?"
If you do, then you are coming from 3 big false beliefs that are causing you much unhappiness.
FALSE BELIEF #1
"I can have control over how people feel about me."
Think for a moment whether or not others have control over how you feel about them. Can someone do everything "right" and be "perfect" in their own eyes, yet you don't enjoy being around them or you don't feel connected with them?
Others may influence how you feel about them, but they have no control over how you feel about them. If you are a basically accepting person, then you might like them even if they get angry or withdrawn. If you are generally a judgmental person, then there may be little they can do for you to like them.
Now turn this around regarding how others feel about you. Since you have no control over whether or not another person is accepting or judgmental, it stands to reason that you also have no control over how they feel about you, regardless of how perfectly loving, open, caring, giving, understanding, handsome, beautiful, or rich you are.
FALSE BELIEF #2
"There is a standard of perfectionism and I can reach it."
I grew up believing that there was a "right" and "perfect" way to be. Then I learned that what I thought was right and perfect was not necessarily what others thought was right and perfect. In fact, it seemed that each person had a completely different understanding of what it means to be perfect!
This was quite distressing to me, as it took away my illusion of control over how people felt about me. At that time many years ago, I was terrified of rejection, so it gave me great comfort to believe that if only I was perfect enough, then I would never be rejected. Without a standard of perfection, what would be my guiding light to feel safe?
FALSE BELIEF #3
"I am basically flawed and need to strive to cover up my flaws and appear to be better than I am."
As long as I believed that I was basically flawed in some way, I was afraid of rejection. When I learned how to connect with my spiritual Guidance and see myself through the eyes of truth rather than through the eyes of my parents and others, I was able to see that my soul essence - my core Self - is already perfect, a perfect individualized expression of the Divine.
What was flawed were my beliefs that were programmed into me and needed to be healed.
Imagine how life would be for you if you knew that you were already perfectly wonderful and incredible just the way you are in your true Self? What if you could separate out the flawed, wounded, programmed part of you - the part you created to help you survive pain - from the magnificent part of you that God created. What if you could see that your ego wounded self - with all your fears and protections and ways of trying to have control over getting love and avoiding pain - is NOT who you are.
Then, instead of perfectionism being your guiding light, being fully and passionately yourself becomes your guiding light!
I assure you, this is a MUCH easier way to live!
