Spiritual Beings

Spiritual beings have a part
in just about every spiritual tradition.

Our spiritual awakening in the Age of Aquarius includes
an increased awareness of beings of light in higher dimensions
that will assist us when we call on them to do so.


  • 77% of people in the United States believe angels exist. Per the 2001 survey by Scripps Howard News Service and Ohio University.

  • The early Gnostics believed intermediate celestial beings functioned between God and man.

  • Islam teaches there are three species of intelligent beings: the angels, other ethereal beings, and human beings.

  • Eastern religious traditions revere gods and goddesses that usually embody specific qualities.

  • Native American traditions and other indigenous cultures embrace the concept of both celestial beings and nature spirits.

  • Stories of angels intervening in the lives of humans have existed for centuries, and have played a prominent role in the poems of Dante, Milton and Goethe.

Millions of spiritual creatures walk the earth
Unseen, both when we wake and when we sleep.

~John Milton, Paradise Lost


  • Madame Blavatsky founded the Theosophical Society in 1875, and interacted directly with beings of light named Master M and Master KH.

  • Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian philosopher, literary scholar, and educator presented 10 lectures in Helsinki in 1912 on the subject of "Spiritual Beings in the Heavenly Bodies and in the Kingdoms of Nature."

  • Edna and Guy Ballard founded the I AM Activity in the early 1930s after the ascended master Saint Germain appeared to, and conversed in detail with, Guy Ballard while he hiked in Mount Shasta.

  • Mark Prophet founded the Summit Lighthouse in 1958, later joined by his wife, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, after the ascended master El Morya appeared to him and asked him to be his messenger.

  • Angels are also included in the works of Shakespeare, Henry W. Longfellow, Emily Dickinson, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and many other prominent poets and writers.

Episcopal Bishop Philip Brooks has observed how

"the calm, familiar way with which from end to end
the Bible assumes the present existence of a
world of spiritual beings.

"...From creation to judgment, the celestial beings are forever present...There is no reserve, no vagueness that would leave a chance for the whole system to be explained away
in dreams and metaphors."


Spirit and matter are not separate manifestations even though our physical senses may imply differently.

Once again, all that exists can be reduced to energy, which can neither be created nor destroyed, and spirit and matter are finer and denser manifestations of energy that exist simultaneously.

There are three categories of Spiritual Beings:

  • Man
  • Angels
  • Elementals

    Each category has a path of spiritual evolution, but are all interconnected and part of the Divine One.
