I believe I’ve made the point before that enlightenment – the Light – is bestowed on humanity by the angels.
Here are three examples:
And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. (1)
Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. (2)
Alfred Lord Tennyson
I stood upon the Mountain which o’erlooks
The narrow seas….
A curve of whitening, flashing, ebbing light!
A rustling of white wings! the bright descent
Of a young Seraph! and he stood beside me…
… my human brain
Stagger’d beneath the vision [that he gave me]…
With ministering hand he rais’d me up:
Then with a mournful and ineffable smile [said],
“There is no mightier Spirit than I to sway
The heart of man: and teach him to attain
By shadowing forth the Unattainable….” (3)
The fact that the angels enlighten humans is what made Archangel Michael’s joke so funny, some time ago. You remember he quipped that he turned to Archangel Gabrielle and said, “Gotta light?”
In days gone by, besides the enlightenments of Moses, Isaiah, and Lord Tennyson, angels mediated the enlightenment (‘mediated” because the Light comes from God) of Daniel, Tobias, Caedmon, Mohammed, and a long list of others. (4)
Therefore I’ve asked Archangel Michael repeatedly to grace me with the highest spiritual experiences I can have while still leaving me ready, willing, and able to work.
That rules out seventh-chakra Brahmajnana or God-Realization (until the collective experiences it) and certainly rules out the further experience of a permanent heart opening that is Sahaja Samadhi. (5) With either of those, I’d likely find it hard to continue.
But I also know that any experience of enlightenment – from fourth-chakra vision of the Son, the Atman, our Buddha nature, called spiritual awakening, to sixth-chakra Savikalpa Samadhi or Cosmic Consciousness (6) enriches the individual and arms them with useful graces like patience, confidence, equanimity, etc.
The structures of my mind having collapsed, my life has suddenly become greatly simplified. No desire arises in me, save for my daily meals. I can sit here for a long time in perfect silence and be happy as a clam.
There’s no dilemma in this space because there’s no desire. Dilemma only arises in the presence of competing desires and I don’t have any desires right now. I’m content.
But I also sense – I feel like saying I know – that this space can be lost and so this constitutes the only record that may remain of it.
If I lose this space because my field of awareness shrinks, I won’t be aware that I’ve lost it. It’ll be don’t know don’t know.
I’ll never know that anything happened unless told. So I’m glad to have this record of these experiences.
Also, none of the higher spaces is permanent short of Sahaja. Being willing to get it and lose it is part of the discipline. It’s said that a devotee may have to have very many experiences of samadhi before it becomes permanent. I have no experience of samadhi in this lifetime so I cannot say.
Having asked an archangel to grace me with whatever strengthening experiences my soul contract allows, so that I’m well armed for the times ahead, I can now let the matter go and simply, following the creation formula, carry out actions consistent with the desire or request.
Since most lightworkers are angels, according to the Company of Heaven, it’s most probably the case that their guides are also angels. Make your requests therefore of your own guides. Ask for the Light. More Light. And more Light.
We’ll need all the depth of experience we can get when any of the major events hits – the Reval, Disclosure, NESARA, Ascension. (7)

(5) These are senior experiences of enlightenment for folks in the Third Dimension. Brahmajnana is the third experience of enlightenment we have as we climb Jacob’s ladder of consciousness and Sahaja is the fourth.
Most sages have experienced Brahmajnana, but a few, like Ramana Maharshi, have experienced Sahaja and escape from Third Density.
(6) Spiritual awakening or stream entering is the first experience of enlightenment we encounter in Third Dimensionality. Cosmic Consciousness is the second.
(7) Thank heavens I earn my keep by writing about these experiences. I cannot conceive of having them and then going into the office the next day.
