Healing Power through Invocation (073-2 Sunday 9/29/1957)

The Feast of the Angels (3 of 3) (115-2 Sunday 8/16/1959)
The Angel line is different from the human line. Life Motivation Wave instructs man throughout his evolution. Fallen Angels constitute third line of evolution.

Next to our Guardians the Angel most watchful of man is the Angel of the Christ Presence. Angel line has three sexes, masculine, feminine and biune.

Example of Peter in the Bible being freed from prison by a Protector Angel. Excerpts...
The Communion of the Holy Assembly (155-1 Sunday 6/25/1961)

Excerpts...
Feast of the Angels (161-2 Sunday 10/1/1961)

Thanksgiving Enriches the Grateful Heart (165-1 Sunday 11/19/1961)
Thanksgiving is a season of preparation, it is a start of holy season. There should be a continual thanksgiving in our hearts always. Where there is gratitude, there is love, kindliness, thanksgiving, sincerity and the result is happiness. All virtues are like jewels. Recounts a story by Maurice Metterlink and a story of children taken to the inner worlds who return with gratitude for the ordinary in their lives. Story of Dr. Ray Charles Jarmon, a radio preacher in Los Angeles, who participated in medical studies of LSD. Discussion of his observations during those experiments. Whenever anyone is grateful, the most beautiful blue, almost purplish, rises out of his aura, that is crystal clear. There is also perfume. Angels would tell you that after the worship of God, gratitude is the most important aspect of character to develop. Excerpts...
The Spiritual Side of Loving Animals (188-2 Sunday 6/3/1962)

Excerpts...
Why Knowledge of the Angels is Important (289-2 Sunday 9/26/1965)
Bible and many other religious and cultural examples honoring Angels given. Individuals with Angel beliefs and experiences shared, including Joy Day's experience. Angels are still in existence at this moment, carrying out God's wishes, teachings of the Angels and their helpfulness does not pertain to any one age, nor to only a certain limited amount of persons. This help is given to all who are prepared and who make themselves ready for such unfoldment and disclosure. Angels do not want our human worship, nor wish us to interfere with their labors. The more types of Angel beings we know, the better for us in our meditative work. Excerpts...
Why the Reality of Angels Is Vital to Our Age (314-2 Sunday 10/2/1966)

Excerpts...
Living with the Realization of the Angels (339-1 Sunday 10/1/1967)

The Glorious Reminder of Michaelmas (401-2 Sunday 9/28/1969)
Excellent talk on general Angel and Deva information Excerpts...
Glory of Angelhood (472-2 Sunday 9/26/1971)
An Angel has already had 124 initiations; first as elemental creature, then a deva, and then at long last the development of Angelhood. Astonishing beauty enfolded in color mists, and only the face, head and throat, the hands and sometimes arms, and the feet are visible. The rest is like a cloud of light about them. According to their degree of unfoldment and also their specific way of serving will the great Angels have a color aura. An Angel's eyes are very large. More orders than we can imagine, working for the world. Flower describes many of these orders: Elohim; national, state and city Angels; Angels of Time, Years, Centuries, Seasons; Angels of North, South, East, West; Planetary Angels at chakras; Solar Angels; St Michael and Warrior hosts; Angels in charge of animals; many more.

Questions and answers in regards to Guardian Angels conclude this talk. Excerpts...
Angels (874-2 Sunday 9/28/1986)
Orthodox churches may mention but don't teach about Angels. Angels are a glorious order. They are so much higher, their purity, goodness, love and self-giving is in what they are and do for those they serve. God wanted man and the creatures to be cared for, and very lovingly. Angels were given charge of caring for us. Whoever hasn't seen an Angel or loved one, is very impoverished. Flower describes several different orders of Angels and their interactions with men, animals, other needs. Angels of healing, of love, of initiation, of time, of transformation, of guardianship, of protection, of destiny, and many others. Angels are desirous of helping people understand what it is they are to know; to realize that they should improve their relationships; to know that they can be stronger than they are. There's no mother's love, no teacher's love, no child's love, that can ever compare to your Guardian Angel's love. Wherever you go, you will be protected. Excerpts...

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.
The life and writings of Flower A. Newhouse are those of a Christian mystic, and her insights into the inner realms of life provide us with a path to wholeness that she called "Living the Life." These teachings are not doctrine, but a practical guide to the direct, immediate experience of God. Flower's mission was also to reawaken humanity to the reality of angels, a work she began with her first book in 1937, and added to in many published writings and in recorded lectures.
