Angels In Our Midst
By Lois Quinn

A sample article written for The Seventh Cycle, a newsletter from the greater Boston area A.R.E.

Have you noticed a resurgence of angel awareness in the world? There are countless books written about the angelic forces and their role in our spiritual development. Angel readings, angel therapy, angel healings and medicine are readily available. There have been numerous reports of angel encounters as well as divine interventions by angels. Perhaps many of you may have been blest with the knowledge of the presence of angels!

What is the role of angels in our existence? Angels are light beings that perform God’s will and are the guardians of the souls. According to Edgar Cayce, the universal laws of enlightenment, wisdom, transformation, cause and effect, are “ensouled by archangels”, these archangels are the laws of the universe! There are angels who are the record keepers of our experiences and who present these to God after our death.

“And as He has given, behold the face of the angel ever stands before the throne of God; the awareness in self that thou may be one with, equal with, the Father-God, as His child, as the brother of the Christ... And as the awareness comes, it is as the angel of hope, the angel of announcing, the angel of disclaiming, the angel that would warn, the angel that would protect, for these are ever as awarenesses, as consciousnesses, of the abiding presence of that He hath given his angels charge concerning thee (Reading 2533-7).”

The Hierarchy of Angels is in three groups, highest to lowest they are:

  • Supreme Hierarchy - Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones
    The Seraphim are the angels of love, light and fire (purification). These angels surround the center from which all life flows to consciousness and creation. They are the choirs of angels called “the music of the spheres”, mentioned in the Cayce readings. The Cherubim bring intercession and cleansing to humanity, guard the celestial records of knowledge, and emanate Divine Wisdom. The Thrones govern justice, are a source of karmic forces and create a powerful spiritual attraction which will bring all souls back to the Divine.

  • Middle Hierarchy - Dominions, Virtues, Powers
    The second order consists of the Dominions, the forces of all nature: animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms, and the originating force and ultimate perfection of creation (law of evolution). Virtues emanate grace, and forces which manifest miracles in spirit upon the earth. The Powers are the warrior angels that protect us from demons, emanate creative power to souls, regulate punitive power, mercy, legislation, and sovereign power.

  • Lower Hierarchy - Principalities, Archangels, Angels
    The lower Hierarchy consists of the Principalities that emanate celestial intelligences to any form of power on the earth through Divine guidance and govern the spiritual awakening of the masses. Next are the Archangels who oversee the activities of nations. They inspire us through art, music, literature, religion and mysticism. These Archangels are able to command all of the Divine forces in carrying out their mission. They have chosen to assist souls on earth to reach their spiritual potential. There are seven leading Archangels. The Archangel Michael is the leader of these and his responsibility is to bring all souls to the Christ consciousness. The Archangel Raphael is the source of all healing and divinely inspires artists. Raguel is the taskmaster for the other Archangels and the lower angelic realms and is the guardian of our chakras. Uriel transforms tribulation and misfortune into great advantages. Sarakiel has dominion over the souls who have transgressed and represents our conscience. Archangel Gabriel reveals God’s will and is the archangel of resurrection. He is also called the “angel of paradise”. Gabriel has presently come forth to announce through us that we are nearing a new birth of spiritual awakening. Ramiel, the seventh leading Archangel presides over mystical vision and the coming of Judgment Day. He is part of the group that rules the Akashic records. The final hierarchy are the Angels, who provide Divine interaction between this earth and the spiritual realm. They provide inspiration, revelation, guidance and protection. They are the messengers we see right after death who give us our “life review” and present our earthly experiences to the higher powers of grace and mercy.

Recently, a dear friend of mine crossed over. I would speak with her about angels over the years, and we discussed my recent experiences with angels and the angel messages cards. When she suddenly became ill and was told the end was imminent, her family decided that she would die in her own home. They provided round the clock monitoring and hospice care. I would also help as needed. One day she asked me if I would bring my angel cards to give her a reading. The first card of her reading, brought about stunned silence. I asked her if something was wrong and she said “that angel has the same name as my mother!” Amazingly, the message was “To help heal this situation, see the other person’s point of view with compassion. The angels are helping to heal this situation miraculously so that everyone will forgive and forget judgments and act responsibly.” My friend and her mother had been estranged for years when her mother disowned her and her sister for keeping contact with their father after their parents separated. Her mother was still living. I said perhaps it’s time to forgive your mother since you’ll be leaving soon. It will be so liberating to let go of all the pain you carried with you over the years. Forgiveness is so powerful. As St. Francis of Assisi told us, “it is in pardoning that we are pardoned”.

Later that night, in a dream, I saw a vision of her face, she said, “Lois, it is so beautiful over here, it is more beautiful than anything you could ever imagine!” I thought she had died that night but as I found out later she hadn’t. I understand that some people go back and forth before they actually make the final transition. I went over a few days later, and she was now bedridden and sleeping off and on. She was so excited to tell me that she saw angels at the foot of her bed the night before. There were 4 or 5 of them and one of them was holding a baby. One of the angels said, “Don’t worry about time, there are no clocks over here!” She was so comforted by seeing these angels, I noticed that as she slept she glowed with a slight smile on her face and seemed totally at peace. I kissed her good-bye, as I was leaving the next day on a trip to visit my grandchildren. A day later I received a call from her daughter that she crossed over. Her daughter said, “I believe that angels were with her when she died. I saw a rainbow of light around her head. I blinked thinking I must have imagined it, but when I looked at my mother again, the rainbow of light was still there.” How comforting angels are!

I thought about my dear friend while I was away and wondered when I would hear from her on the other side. When I returned home her daughter gave me a small shadow box she made that was adorned with miniature musical instruments. She told her daughter that she wanted me to have it, since we both shared many fun-filled and happy times, enjoying music and dancing. Last week I went to an A.R.E. presentation in Lexington. As I left home I looked at the box and said, I hope all is well with you, I love you. When I returned that evening, I went upstairs to change and I looked over at the box on my dresser. I was astonished to see that the little drawer of the box was open! It was closed when I left and no one had been at my home. I knew then that she was fine and I would indeed see her again.
