is derived from the Greek word “angelos”
Latin word “angelus”
which means messenger. The
matching Hebrew word “mal'ak”
has the same meaning. Angels are defined as supernatural or spirit
beings that act as mediators between heaven and earth.Angels
are The Creator's Messengers; they carry our prayers to and from The
Creator as well as guide us throughout our lives.
Angels are divided into choirs which
gives them rankings. The division into Choirs does not mean that they
are rated as being better angels than the other, it only states what
responsibilities they carry. We will talk about The Choirs of Angels
in a later lecture.
protect and guide us in our times of need. They hold pure and
positive intentions and would never hurt a human being nor tell them
to hurt themselves or another person.
DO ANGELS LOOK LIKE?
is a good question for there is many different outlooks on what
angels look like.
The Bible, it describes angels as having many eyes and many sets of
wings. It also describes angels as having 4 faces..an ox, a lion, a
man and an eagle.
if The Bible describes angels with such a chilling description, why
are they always painted with such beauty and with one set of gorgeous
was the first words that the angels spoke “Do Not Be Afraid.”
when they showed themselves to those in The Bible?
believe angels show themselves to us with whatever will not frighten
us. They can show themselves as loved ones bringing healing messages,
an animal, or a beautiful lighted being. I believe whatever brings us
peace in our heart, mind, body and soul, is how angels will
physically show themselves to us.
famous Artist was painting and saw an angel one evening. He saw the
bright light that surrounded the spiritual being. As the light was
shining around his head, it looked like a circle. This is where the
halo was born...Although they portray the angels with a halo, It is
actually the divine light that surrounds them.
for the wings...I am not sure if angels have wings or not. Some have
said they have had spiritual experiences where the angels had wings
and some say they did not have wings. I know when I see them, they
have wings. This does not create the fact of whether they do or they
do not. We must be sure whether we are seeing an angel or a spirit
guide for from what I understand, spirit guides will not have
Angels can take on the form of a human being, they do not have
physical bodies like Jesus did. They were made for and by The
Creator to deliver His messages to us here on Earth while forming a
bridge between Earth and Heaven. Angels never lived a human
life...being created in spirit, they will remain in spirit. This is
the difference between Spirit Guides and Angels,
Guides have lived a human life before..most likely, many of them
while angels have not.
truly believe that how we are comfortable seeing Angels... and how we
envision them, is how they will show themselves to us. They do not
want to scare us...only guide us and bring pure divine love and
guidance into our lives.
We are aided on our journey by inner guides, or archetypes, each of which exemplifies a way of being on the journey of life. We will explore the 12 archetypes in detail in future blog posts. In the mean time, and for you to become somewhat familiar with what we are going to talk about, you can find a brief introduction to the archetypes and the heroes journey in this post.
Theinner guides are archetypes that have been used with us since the dawn of time. We see them reflected in recurring images in art, literature, myth and religion.
How do the 12 archetypes relate to us living life?
The quest itself is replete with dangers and pitfalls, but it offers great rewards: the capacity to be successful in the world, knowledge of the mysteries of the human soul, the opportunity to find and express your unique gifts in the world and to live in loving community with other people.
We each experience the archetypes according to our own perspective. There are at least five ways to explain what an archetype is:
Spiritual seekers may conceive archetypes as gods and goddesses, encoded in the collective unconscious, whom we scorn at our own risk.
Academics, or other rationalists, who typically are suspicious of anything that sounds mystic, may conceive archetypes as controlling paradigms o metaphors, the invisible patterns in the mind that control how we experience the world.
Physicists, Psychologists and other scholar study archetypes by examining their presence in art, literature, myth and dreams.
Religious positions may view archetypes as different facets of God, accessible to the psyche's capacity to imagine numinous reality.
People who are interested in human growth and personal development may understand archetypes as guides on our journey. Each archetype brings with it a task, a lesson and a gift.
The archetypes together teach us how to live. Every archetypes resides within each of us. That means we all have this full human potential within ourselves.
Stages of the Journey
The stages of the journey include 3 stages,
To understand the future posts about the archetypes you will need to understand the archetypal stages.
They are as follows:
Preparation: Includes the first four archetypes-Innocence, Orphan, Warrior, Caregiver.
With Innocence we learn optimism and trust. When we experience "the fall" we become orphans who are disappointed, abandoned and betrayed by life. The Orphan teaches us that we need to stop being co-dependent and rely on others to take care of us, but the Orphan feels powerless and helpless that its best strategy for survival is to band together with others. When the Warrior comes into our lives, we learn to set goals and develop strategies for achieving them. This creates discipline and courage. Then the Caregiver becomes active, we learn to take care of others, eventually to care for ourselves as well.
Four Attributes: Basic optimism, the capacity to band together for support, the courage to fight for yourself and others and compassion and care for yourself and others provide the basic skills for living in society.
The Journey: Includes the archetypes: The Seeker, Lover, Destroyer, and the Creator.
With the Seeker we begin to yearn for something beyond ourselves and search for something that will satisfy us in our lives. The Destroyer takes away much that had seemed essential to our lives
Initiated through suffering, is complements by an initiation into Eros, the Lover, as we find ourselves in love with people, causes, places, work. This love is so strong it requires commitment-we are no longer free. The treasure that emerges out of this encounter with death and love is the birth of the true self. The Creator helps us begin to express this self in the world and prepares us to return to the Kingdom.
Four Attributes:To strive, let go, to love and to create teaches us the basic process of dying to the old self and giving birth to the new. This process prepares us to return to the kingdom and change our lives.
The Return: Includes the last four archetypes: The Ruler, Magician, Sage and The Fool.
When we return we realize we are the Rulers of our kingdom. The Magician activates in our lives and we become adept to healing and transforming ourselves and others so that the kingdom can continually be renewed. The Sage helps us know what truth really is so we can be completely happy and fulfilled. The Fool helps us learn to live joyously in the moment without worrying about tomorrow. Four Attributes: Taking responsibility for our lives, transforming and healing ourselves and others, non-attachment and a commitment to truth and a capacity for joy and spontaneity.

and interest, and feel and believe that your desire has already been
fulfilled. This kind of thinking will accelerate its fulfillment. It is natural for the mind to

I guess I will start
from the beginning with My RSD Story. October 24, 2002 is a day that
I will never forget for it changed my life in whole. Do not ever
think it can not happen to you… because that is what I thought. We are
not invincible, we are human beings.. and the choices we make will
determine where we go and what happens in our lives.
choose to live a life full of pain or we can choose to embrace the
gifts that God has given us, for every single thing in life that
happens has a purpose - the good, the bad and the ugly.
I was confined to a wheel chair for a year. I was able to make the choice to not sit in that wheel chair for the rest of my life, even though the doctors told me my disease of RSD would just progress and get worse.
get me wrong, I know that some of us do not have the choice to get out
of that wheel chair or a choice in what our physicality brings us in our
lives.....But we do have a choice on how we think and how we choose
to handle what has happened to us.
We can respond and use it as a
positive, inspirational thing or we can react and drown ourselves in
our own sorrow; I didn't choose it at first... but now...I choose
inspiration and being positive.
It took me a long, long time to realize what my purpose was in life. I
felt sorry for myself, I was miserable, I was taking 18 medications
three times per day that were prescribed by the doctor, and I used to
say “I’m just a plant-just stick me in the middle of my mattress and
water me." because all I could do was lay there. lol
Little did I know that as I was laying there unable to walk,
new seeds were being planted right beneath me; A new life was getting
ready to grow right in front of my eyes. I was blinded for so long by
my pain and my self pity and so overwhelmed with the feelings of losing everything.... My marriage, my home,
and the worst part that I lost..was myself.
blog posts, I hope and pray that I continue to inspire the survivors of
RSD/CRPS or any other chronic Pain or incurable and debilitating
dis-ease with my story.
So this is where my story begins...
October 24, 2002
I went out with some friends to have a drink after work. My teary
eyed 10 yr old son stood in front of my truck and begged me not to go.
I thought he was just being a child that didn’t want his mommy to go
out. Little did I know that he was a protecting angel trying to send me a divine
At that time, I wasn’t
listening. I just wanted to go out and get away from my problems. Me
and my ex were always arguing. That night, he called and I couldn’t
get a signal inside the restaurant... so being stressed out and
frustrated by his many ignorant phone calls, I stepped outside to
receive his messages on my voice mail. On my way down the steps exiting the restaurant, I
slipped and twisted my ankle and my back in ways that any person’s
body would not normally twist.
I stood leaning against the
wall at the bottom of the stairs and was asked by the doormen if I was
OK. I said, “I think so?” But as I walked around, I felt fine until I
got home that evening.
When I took
off my shoes to go to bed, My right ankle and foot were swelled up a
little bit. I thought, well? it’s normal, I twisted it. When I woke up
the next day, My foot was 3 times it’s normal size and I was unable
to walk on it.
I went to the Doctors and they sent me for
x-rays. No Break! THANK GOD! But I still couldn’t walk so I went home
on crutches. Within 2 weeks, My knee was swelled up, red and burning
like flames. I was in so much pain that my doctor sent me to an
Orthopedic Doctor. Within the next 3 years I had MRI's, X-rays, nerve tests, and all types of other tests finally resulting in getting a 3
phase bone scan. I was horrified with the results. There was not as
much circulation in the right leg compared to the left leg. They
called it, “a diminished blood flow in the right leg as well as fluid surrounding the knee”. After
my Pain Management Doctor received the results, He diagnosed me with RSD/CRPS
aka Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
A dis-ease I have never heard of
before was about to change my life forever.
“What was RSD and how do I get rid of it” I thought to myself because the doctor didn’t go into too much detail at the time.
So when I got home, I started researching the internet and also
asked my mom who worked with nurses to find out more about it. She
called me and said somberly, “It’s not good, Lisa.”
I said, “I know Mom....I know...” and busted out in tears. I knew then, my life would never ever be the same again…..
