Existing in the higher dimensional realms are Angelic Presences that nurture the advancement and development of man and nature. The Angelic Kingdom includes the Angels of Nature, the Builders of Form, the Angels of Inspiration, Angels of Love (Guardian, Healing, Religious and Song Angels), and the Angels of Birth and Death.
They, like mankind, press toward the goal of perfection and union with the Supreme Spirit. Angels are purer and more spiritual than man. Their very spirituality readily makes them mediators between Heaven and Earth.
There are four great waves of Angelic life attuned primarily to physical existence and to serving that life which is active within the planet. There are many other great Angelic paths–all of them purposeful and glorious–but they do not concern us.
Angels of Destiny increase evolvement–perfecting and enriching consciousness wherever they deal with it. They include Watchers and Guardian Angels who give a human being his attention from the moment of physical birth; Angels of Birth who accompany the soul to the human gateway; Karmic Angels including the Kindel Archangels, in charge of evolution itself, and the Angels of Death who precipitate a releasement of the Earth pilgrim from his imprisoning outward life.
When an individual awakens to the reality of God, he or she earns the mantling of a Guardian Angel. This is a relationship which will last for many incarnations. Guardian Angels are always feminine and they are more loving than any earthly relationship we have ever known. They cannot interfere with our free will but they are very resourceful in getting our attention, protecting us, and influencing us for the better. We are greatly in their debt.
These Shining Ones serve the Fourth Wave–the Life Motivation Wave.
A great company of Angels exists whose sole purpose is to serve the Lord Christ. Altogether, they span the region of the Inner Worlds that mantles worship, healing, prayer, and initiation. Collectively, they are thought of as "religious" Angels, since they are most often observed clairvoyantly around churches, temples, and sacred spaces. Their work is to bring individuals closer to God consciousness. Against the background of worldly thought and preoccupations, these resplendent beings plant the seeds of worship and wonder that undergird religious faith and set the stage for the experience of the mystical. They also are messengers of healing and wholeness, encompassing physical, emotional, and mental needs.
This company includes Angels of Adoration who purify and uplift worshipers; Angels of Healing and Prayer who help us achieve transformation and wholeness; and Angels of the Christ Presence, Archangels who charge the spiritual atmosphere of a region and attend rites of initiation.
These Angels, who serve the Second Outpouring of the Logos–the Wave of Love, work within the jurisdiction and supervision of the Lord Emmanuel.
Four glorious orders are prominent here: Remliel, the Awakener Angels who open the eyes of our souls and help them be free of encumbrances; Fireal, the Inspirer Angels who promote inner quickening and the revelation of spiritual truths; Imli, the Enlightener Angels whose work is to help novitiates burst their self-bonds; and the Chohi Archangels who make possible world-changing move.
These Bright Ones, who serve the Third Outpouring of Divinity–the Wave of Divine Wisdom, concentrate persistently upon rendering service for their venerated Superior, the Maha Chohan.
Of the four great waves of angelic beings serving life on earth, the wave of nature is the most diverse in its inhabitants and its activities. Because so many of us lack an intimate relationship with this sphere, it is vitally important to bridge the gap that separates the world of nature from the world of human affairs. An appreciation of the Angels of nature can help us accomplish this.
The nature kingdom is vast and alive with energy. It comprises four realms: earth, air, water, and fire. Each realm has a hierarchy of presences–from tiny elementals through many ranks of nature beings, to magnificent Angels and nature Lords. The average person has no idea of the complex work required of this kingdom to keep its four realms healthy and active.
The Earth Kingdom consists of Elemental and Devic beings. The elemental creatures include Frakins, who etherically energize the simplest cells of life; Elves, who are entrusted with ministering to the spirits of growing things such as small plants; and Gnomes, who dwell in the etheric world in proximity to the rocks above and below the Earth's crust itself. The Devas include the Oreads, who are trained to advance the lives of all large forms of vegetable life; Tree Devas, who minister to all forms of tree life; Allrays, the Angels of the Heights; Allsees are the Master Devas; and Deva Lords, whose greatest and highest representative functions from the vicinity of Mount Everest.
The Air Kingdom consists of an elemental called a Builder; Zephers, who are Devas that ride and control the air currents and deflect mighty intensifications of pranic, solar, or tentic rays which invade Earth; Sylphs, Air Devas who work with etheric conditions created by solar and cosmic forces; and Speeriel Devas, who deal with magnetism and lightning. The Airwee Order of Angels, include Cilarael Angels, the Angels of the Wind; Murmlo Angels, the Angels of Weather; Neentel Angels, the Storm Angels; Feeli Angels, who induce conditions which precipitate the ocean's releasement of water by means of evaporation; and Delvee Angels, who control the mingling of air and water elements. The Tija are tremendously advanced, Masterly, and Lordly Figures who oversee all instruction and decisions regarding to changes to climate, rainfall, and the fertility of Earth.
The Water Kingdom consists of water elementals such as Oceanids, who serve the elements by helping to blend them into the common substance of water; Water Sprites, who ride the waters gleefully; and Sea Nymphs ride the surface currents of moving bodies of water. Naiads are water Devas who frequent fresh-water rivers and lakes. Nereids are Angels that preside over lakes and in underground caverns, helping to expand the water's aura. River Kings oversee life in flowing bodies of water and are under the supervision of an Ocean King or Sea Lord. The supreme head of all Water Beings is a Tija who, with His court, decide the destinies of the mingling of water and wind for bringing about changes in climate whenever changes are necessary.
The Fire Kingdom is closely related to the fires of spirituality. The fire elemental is known as a Fire Sprite. The kingdom's Angels include the Amfri, who watches for spiritual fires of aspirations rising from Earthians; the Firl, who manipulate electrical properties to further an initiate's unfoldment; and the Pitris–the Fathers of Fire, who serve as planetary connectives under the direct supervision of the Supreme Fire Being of this system–the Solar Logos.
These intelligences, who serve the First Outpouring of the Creative Logos–the Nature Wave, work within the jurisdiction and supervision of the Lord Manu.
In the inner world the highest Angels that influence animals, fish and birds are known as Aqui. This Order serves the Group Spirit on the Fourth Wave–the Life Motivation Wave.
The Order of Aqui has two main subdivisions
regarding animals. One division is governed by
Nature Angels named Folatel Angels, who supervise
and influence creatures on the mental plane. The
other division of this order are called Budiel
Angels, who are responsible for guiding the
progress and growth of individual characteristics
in creatures of the animal world. It should be
easy to recognize that these Angels have a
relationship with the Angels of Destiny who
direct human beings.
Fish have two Devic Orders influencing them. The Pentee Devas regulate the fixed habits which govern the cyclic experiences of fish. The more advanced Twan Devas supervise the development and evolutionary progress of species among all forms of water lives, including interesting mammals that spend most of their time in water.
A similar division of duties occurs among the two Devic Hosts which administrate the experience of winged creatures–such as normal birds who were, in the earlier stages of their evolvement, harmless or even helpful insects. The Seezal oversee species reproduction and migration, much like Pentee Devas do for fish. The Twilvee Devas perform duties for birds similar to those of the Twan Devas for fish.

Christian Mysticism is simply a method of reverence and devotion to God. It is a path of attainment which leads to the Divine Reality–to first-hand knowing of God. The mystical path stresses the way of Divine union with God through illumination.
The Living Christ is the Lord of Angels and of men and the model of our own becoming. His service is the broadcasting of the Divine Christ Spirit, the light of redemption. His influence awakens in us the Christing of our own natures.
The Way of Discipleship is a way of drawing ever closer to the Divine Presence. It is a voluntary surrender of the entire self to the service of God. It pays great attention to spiritual realities and goals inspiring us toward inner growth.
Meditation and Prayer are the disciplines that most directly draw us Godward and into the inner worlds. During these moments, we consciously purify ourselves of worldly or personal preoccupations and center ourselves wholly upon consciousness of God.
The Angelic Kingdom consists of beings created by God. They, like mankind, press toward the goal of perfection and union with the Supreme Spirit. Angels are purer and more spiritual than man. Their very spirituality readily makes them mediators between Heaven and Earth.
Nature provides healing and enlightenment. When wisely trod, the path to God through nature employs every faculty inherent in man. In nature, beauty shines in all its pristine essence before us. It is for us to newly discover and translate this beauty to our spirits and our senses.
Reincarnation is the realization that life is a school, striving to awaken and quicken the Divinity within us, striving to bring man from primitive stages of unfoldment to that of greater and more glorious awareness.

She describes the various duties and responsibilities of the different types of Angels and stresses the important role They have in our everyday life. She shares what transpires between the Kindel Archangel and a soul who has passed into the inner realms, and the tough questions one has to face about how one lived on earth. Flower also describes various experiences she had with Angels from the time she was a child on into her adult life. This is a fascinating peek into a world most people aren't even aware exists.
