I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

The word deva comes from the Sanskrit language, meaning "a being of brilliant light" and is used to indicate a non-physical being. We are using the word deva here as a general name for both nature spirits and angelic beings.

The Higher Developed Devas

These beings, usually called angels, archangels and so on, are creative intelligences building our world. They know how to manipulate ethereal substances into ever more crystallized forms of which the end result is physical matter. They build vehicles for every life form.

They do not have free will, but are very powerful in what they do. Their form changes as they move around, and changes over time. They live in a state of immediate knowledge and are a source of happiness and exaltation. They live fully in the moment, in full concentration and in unity with the flowing energy of the field they are working in.

They can create sounds in the ethereal worlds that have a positive effect on humans and their environment. They work with sounds, mantras, and movements to create energy patterns.

Classification of the Angels

Most people with the second sight have focus on the elemental beings, only a few also have contact with the angelic realm. They have described angels of sound, color, healing and so on, angels associated with the Christ energy and creative forces, but for a basic classification of the higher developed beings we have to turn to the old, but still valid classification in the Jewish/Christian tradition. So, here we go:

Besides all the beings and forces we have seen thus far, there are even more, greater beings that work on the fundaments of the cosmos. Here is an overview of the traditional hierarchy above the Archangels. The first name is from the Catholic tradition, the second name, between brackets, is from the Jewish tradition.

  • The Seraphim (Haioth ha Qodesh) distribute the universal force that allows mankind to fixate within themselves the divine unity. They determine the four supreme cardinal points, from which comes those of space. From these beings come the four elements, and all other group of four that determine existence. They are without any form.
  • The Cherubim (Ophanim or Galgalim) regulate and equilibrate the primordial chaos. They provide us the forms by which we are able to visualize the divine things. Their vibrations are in form of light as well as sounds. Their function is to maintain manifestation in movement.
  • The Thrones (Arailim) allow our spirit to fixate the images formed by the Cherubim. They maintain the primordial ether in the visible form in the subtle substances. They regulate and stabilize the power of the divine to give it form. They reside in the area of the cosmos where material form begins to take shape.
  • The Dominions (Hhashmalim) are like a reservoir of energy that animates nature. They give to men the necessary force to conquer the inner enemy and to achieve the ends that are assigned to them. Dominions are Angels of Leadership. They regulate the duties of the angels, making known the commands of God.
  • The Powers (Seraphin) have to do with divine sanctity and purification. Powers are Warrior Angels against evil defending the cosmos and humans. They are known as potentates. They fight against evil spirits who attempt to wreak chaos through human beings.
  • The Virtues (Malakim) work primordially on the mineral kingdom, the environment in which the beings of creation evolve. They produce the mineral realm, the metal, the gems and are the soul of all mineral medicine. Virtues are known as the Spirits of Motion and control the elements. They are sometimes referred to as "the shining ones." They govern all nature.
  • The Principalities (Tarshishim) give us the submission of all things, they embrace of all forces.
  • The Archangels (Beni-Elohim) rule over the animal kingdom and give man domination over it.
  • The Angels (Keroubim) are the guardians of the threshold, the defenders of the holiness of God against fallen man who would otherwise take the Tree of life. They deliver the prayers to God and God's answers and other messages to humans. Angels have the capacity to access any and all other Angels at any time. They are the most caring and to assist those who ask for help.

Benevolent and Malevolent Beings

Good devas keep themselves to the realm they are working in. Evil devas will approach animals and humans with their bad intentions.

More evolved does not automatically mean that they are benevolent to humans. Superior spirits, however, have made a vow that they will never introduce themselves with a personal name as a means to make people believe in them. They decline any personal recognition. Their messages are always refined and, if high in vibrancy, short with a profound meaning, and they are not compulsive. True spiritual beings of high development have a full aura. They are filled with a particular quality of white clear light.

If you want to know with what kind of spirit you are dealing with, ask to show them their inner, divine light. True spiritual beings will respond, while spirits with bad intentions will not. Or ask them their name, a good spirit will not give one.

Malevolent spirits interfere with life on the physical level, and cause trouble when they give psychic powers to people. They often give prophecies of disasters. They have no sense of the beautiful or the artistic. They cannot fake beauty or artistry, or sincerity, as all this comes from the heart, and from the divine. They might have a great amount of intelligence, but it is not rooted in truth. They like to talk about and fake the truth, wisdom, righteousness and love, but it is all distorted.

Malevolent spirits feed on fear. To avoid them learn to keep your fear under control, or learn to eliminate it. The opposite of fear is trust, trust in the divine. Don’t pay attention to them. Don’t hate them either, or be angry. They are also children of the divine, who went the wrong path. Respect them for who they are, and make a clear choice not to get involved with them. Know you are rooted in the divine, and bring out that divine light, which we all have in ourselves.

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
