Angels are assumed to be separate beings that are called by name. And it is their name that is the key to understanding their true nature. Voicing a name out loud creates a specific sound vibration which is recognisable by the individual it belongs to. In a crowd of people, calling out the name of one specific individual will identify and bring that individual forward. And so it is with Angels, stating their name with intention will create a specific frequency vibration which calls the Angel to you.
But Angels do not travel from a far away place to where you are as a separate being crossing the vastness of space at the speed of light. This creates paradoxes when considering that angels can be at any place at any moment at the same time. Angels are not separate from you, what they represent is already part of you. By calling their name, you create a resonance which triggers a specific frequency band of vibrations within you which create the very characteristics and qualities of the Angel you called. If you seek protection from Archangel Michael, then calling him within you will bring forward the vibrations that you feel provide you with protection.
If you associated a familiar image of Michael with the set of vibrations invoked by calling his name, then it would also be possible to create a thoughtform of your choosing that would appear before you in that image. If the Intention and Will behind that thoughtform were strong enough in frequency then others would see the image too. Michael does exist but in a multi-dimensional vibrational manner that spans levels of consciousness far across those that are created solely in our reflected image. The ancients in differing times and differing places had different names associated with their perception of characteristics. This is the dimension we live in, a collective consciousness of familiar images created by the original thoughtforms of individual consciousness, recognition by association, familiarity by learned response.
All frequencies, all vibrations already exist within you – within the God Spark, the Crystal of Christ Consciousness. The spiritual journey is the uncoiling of these compressed frequencies, the spiral that exists like an infinite piece of string unwinding with infinite numbers of sound and light frequencies to create an infinite variety of conscious awareness in the form of feelings and emotions, beings and matter. All creation within one single point that grows according to understanding and realisation.
The Angel kingdom is already within you, God is already within you. Everything you need is already within you. There is no separation – just keep unwinding the string.
