Angelic Space

Dear Openhanders,

in this forum thread i would like to share my experiences with unfolding angelic beingness. I am certain that there are some more earth angels around in the openhand space, so this aims at enriching the available information with some hands-on knowledge. So this first post is an overview of practical angel topics that i would love to deepen with you.

The term earth angel, in my perspective, refers to beings from the angelic sphere deciding to incarnate into a physical body to experience life as a human being.



==> Origin and types of angels

Once you get the feeling you might be an angel, you might be filled with doubt. So for me it was very helpful and reassuring to research on the various types and classifications of angels that have been observed for a long time. There are also newer interpretations on the qualities of incarnated angels, which greatly help see seeker to come closer to ones true self.


==> Signs of angelic wings

The most amazing thing is that as an incarnated angel, of course, you have etheric wings. There are different types of wings. These are going to want to be unfolded when the time is right, which might cause confusion and pain where they are fixed. Once this process begins, there are such a lot of things you can do with your wings.

==> Angelic wings in practice

During the evolution of the wings, there are lots of awesome practices to strengthen them and the mastery over them. They can greatly Benefit in healing applications, clearing energetic density, and many more things.

I would be greatly humbled to discuss and exchange with you on these and many more topics. If there is interest, i'd love to write some in depth articles.


Angelic blessings,

Hi Thomas,

I've read through this topic you presented and I have no clue if I'm an angel.  Sometimes people tell me I'm an earth angel but I never took it seriously.  I do believe I'm a very old soul.  Star soul or angel?  I do not know.  I'm waiting on my Divinicus book to arrive and maybe get some more insight.

I do have pain in my back, but also have had spinal injuries.  I get pain behind my heart chakra and also under my right shoulder blade area.  These pains have been more present the past few months but I really cannot say what they are.

I will check in here some to see if something resonates.  I referred to the angel in my bedroom one night who said "his" name was Gabriel, as a male, but felt there really was no gender.  That's just how I described it.

People have seen guides and angels around me so I'm sure I have them, just not sure I am one.  Thank you for letting me know about this subject.

Much love,

Hi Open,

Oh My!  I busted out laughing.  I'm tickled about your comment.  Earth-wise I'm so ornery, playful and wicked sense of humor, joking, always laughing, like being the class clown.  That's me!  That's why everyone calls me Sunshine, Sunnygirl or Sunny all the time and have for years.  Somehow that doesn't seem like an angelic vibe much to me.  Maybe an Imp.  lol  But I do thank you for the comment.  I know I'm here for some purpose to have the gifts I have so I just try to do the best I can.

But on the serious side I do have much compassion for others.  I don't think I was expecting  to read Divinicus  to find out if I'm an angel, but hoping the book will open up some more memory for me and give me perspective and tips on working through things. 

I had wondered with some of the strong gifts I have used throughout my life, that maybe my memory was being deliberately veiled to keep me humble.  I sure don't feel like I'm special or anything, simply feel I'm just the conduit for the healing energy that flows.  I don't say I'm a Healer, I say I'm a conduit for it if people want to know.  It's the truth.  Sometimes it flows, sometimes not.  I don't try to control it.

On the flip side of the star soul/angelic comments.  When I read your comment about star soul it brought up deep sobbing from within so maybe that could be also.  But I know not to attach to things so will just be ok with whatever, most important is to learn how to work through things.  But if I am here for a special mission, I wonder why I died  this time and had to be brought back here in this same lifetime.  Makes no sense to me.. unless I am a walk-in and don't know it.  My mom said the angel told her that night I had died and the hospital confirmed it  the next morning when mom came to see me and asked about it.  A channel told me I was not a walk-in but maybe she got it wrong.  That might explain many of my experiences.  I just have no idea at this point. 

Thank you for all the great work you do.  Heart  Praying Emoji

That's amazing Thomas - truly heart warming - thanks so much for sharing. OK Hand Sign

As strange as it may sound to some, yes, I've come across plenty of people who describe the strange sensation of having had wings and can feel it along their back - sometimes near to the pit of the arms. How remarkable to regain the sense of that and what it means - thanks for illuminating.

Much love

Dear angels,

i had the angels and Open cleary signifying to me to write another chapter here in the angelic space. So let us look at the most exciting topic when it comes to being an angel. If you come from the angelic realm or do have another connection to the angelic realm it is probable that you have etheric wings.

So how to recognize whether you have wings?

Almost fifteen years ago i started to have this numb sensation in the middle of my back but conveniently ignored it. Over the years this small numbness turned into a more and more painful back so i would not be able to properly sit for longer periods of time. One moment i had the notion, hey, maybe these are the anchoring points for wings, but i thought this was nonsense at the time. A couple of years ago a dear friend of mine told me, hey, Thomas, you are an angel and you have to accept your identity and your wings. Then i realized that the pain in my back was really related to my non-acceptance of my angelic Quality and the wings that were exactly located at that point directly on the back side of the heart chakra. So this was it!

So how to develop your angelic wings? If you have the notion that you do have angelic wings, don't discard it right away but meditate on it and feel deep into that point in the back of the heart chakra to find more clarity about your being. 

Here is a short meditation to familiarize yourself with the angelic energies and your angelic beingness.

- Prepare a quiet place, and light a bright candle.
- Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Connect consciously to your team of guides, angels and ascended masters and the angelic realm
- Connect to all your higher selves thourghout all dimensions
- Visualise pure, gleaming white universal light, like snow crystals, flowing through your crown chakra to the heart chakra, where you gather it.
- Visualise golden universal light flowing through your crown chakra and into your heart chakra.
- Ask that this energy touches your inner light / divine spark and let this energy fuse with your inner light and love to form an even bigger energy in your heart chakra.
- Let this light radiate and expand throughout your body, like a million of diamond like sparkles, that go through all your cells, atoms, and even the spaces between the atoms and fill yourself completely with this new energy.
- Connect yourself consciously to your angelic quality and visualise how you spread your wings and let the energy that fills your heart overflow into your wings.
- Think "Sane" (frequency language for opening etheric wings) and let the light fllow even more into your wings and up into the tips of the wings.
- Let the energy now radiate and expand out of your body and out of your wings and think "I let my power, my love and my light shine as high and far as possible from my heart and wings, according to my capacities and potentials."
- Leave your bodily dimension and feel your love and power in the angelic realm. Feel yourself as a part of all that is. You are now in a space of unconditional love and a high-level power of light.
- Now you are ready to work with your wings.


Use your wings during your daily life, your mediations and client sessions for healing purposes. There are some hints that i can give for the successful beginning of your practice - the so-called wing-manual.

- Spread your wings - spread your wings like the ones of a bird or a Butterfly. Open yourself for your angelic beingness for example when you wake up in the morning.

- Spread your wings to the left/right - you can hold your wings above someone/something for example for shelter

- Spread your wings high above - bring down golden light from above into the tips of the wings and white light for your crown chakra

- Cover someone with your wings - you can embrace someone (a client, a friend, a stranger) with your wings to make them feel secure and hold the space for them. You can also embrace a situation.

- Support your healing pratice - Sit at the head end of your Client and spread your wings alongside the client to give comfort and healing during a session.

- Flap your wings - you can flap your wings to clean and clear them of spiritual debris that you collect during your everyday life. Just imagine how much lower energies you collect in a day, for example when people walk through your wings. When flapping your wings these lower energies from yourself and others near you will be disolved. Very important.

- Hide your wings - close your wings completely to hide them from clairvoyant people you don't want to see your wings.

- Close your wings - other than spreading your wings, you can close your wings in a normal way. Don't do this too often, they are there to be used :) I sometimes use this when i don't want to soak up too much dense energies from my surroundings.

- Touch someone - you can carefully touch someone with the tip of your wing, something you can do if you are worried that someone gets angry or if you want to give someone a little sparkle of light

- Embrace yourself - you can wrap your wings around yourself. Very good for sleep or for protection. You can also include your loved ones.

- Giving feathers - you can give an etheric feather into the heart chakra or wound of someone you want to give angelic healing energy. Imagine immediately how a new feather takes the place of the one you removed and make sure it is fully replenished before you do anything else. Very important.



I guess there are a lot more possibilities to work with your wings, it's quite exciting to find out.

One thing i want to emphasize here about the flapping of the wings. I realized that my back pain is very much related to the amount of spiritual debris i am carrying around. Imagine all the dense energies pulling on your wings and pulling you down, making you heavy. Thus pain in the back. It is very important to make the clearing of your etheric wings a part of your daily spiritual pratice.

Happy praticing! Any resonances are more than welcome!

Angelic greetings

Hi Thomas,

Do you know if invisible wings create wind in a room?  I've had two odd healing experiences over the years while in a healing session.  One was a healing circle where I reached up to touch a man on the back of his head, barely touched his hair when at the same moment, the person also in the healing circle was blown out the way of my arm a little ways.  He gave me the oddest look but I never touched him at all, it was like a wind blew him over a bit.  The current was so strong coming out of my hand, it felt like a 240 current and the man getting the healing dropped to the ground for a couple of min.  Then he got up and said he was healed.  My arm tingled for quite a while afterwards.  Could this have been invisible wings causing the man next to me to be bumped over?

Another time,  a friend of mine who was a Reiki master, and has since passed to another realm, taught me to do Reiki and then ran an ad in the local paper for a free healing session for the public.  He did this twice and both times a room full of people showed up.  We did healings for people in chairs in a circle.  Afterwards, we were all standing and mingling in the room and I was talking with a man and asked him if he wanted more healing energy as I'd not worked on him.  He said yes, give me the full measure kind of joking around.  So as I reached up to touch his forehead  quickly, there was a BIG rush of energy.  My friend, who was across the room said he felt this big "whoosh" of wind and knew it was me as the cause.  He looked around and found me touching a man's forehead.  The man was so giddy, happy and glassy eyed.  He didn't know what had hit him.  It was really funny  to us and the man was super high on the touch.  So could invisible wings have caused that big whoosh of wind?  That was the only 2 times there has been such a really big current of energy and wind.

I do not do anything other than act as the conduit for the healing energy.  I don't consider myself a Healer per se, just the conduit for the energy to flow.  I don't control it or force it, it flows or not, depending on circumstances, I really don't know.

I'm not convinced I'm an angel but Open said I do have an angelic vibe so thought I'd put these 2 situations to you.  It was odd for sure.

Oh and the man who taught me the Reiki, because he said with the powerful energy I had, I needed the Reiki as an acceptable form of healing, also did a ceremony with me one time with a blessed sword and touched my shoulders with this sword during this ceremony while I was kneeling.  He was a High Magi. (?)  He also touched the base of my spine once with his hand one day and "unzipped" something.  Maybe Kundalini but it seriously ungrounded me.  He didn't realize I was not familiar with my energies at that time so he taught me how to ground myself.  I've learned how to do that now.  I only know I have some powerful gifts with odd experiences.  I don't make a joke out of it, I take it seriously but the man was jokingly saying give him the full measure of healing at the public session, like he wasn't sure he believed it was real.

Much love to you, Heart  Praying Emoji

Hi Sherri - it's really exciting for sure when you start to discover something new about yourself. For certain more information and realisation will come over time. The Openhand Approach to these things (to starsoul heritages too for example) is NOT to fixate on the detail or the form. It's more about feeling the energy and embodying that. Which it does seem like you're naturally doing anyway. So the invitation is not to effort or struggle for an 'answer'. Just keep noticing the synchronicities and feeling/embodying the energy.

Its funny but I went to a job search place years ago and they do all kinds of testing to see what type of work you would be good at.  They said I would make a great Private Investigator.  Hahaha  The Universe has such a sense of humor if I am a Star soul/Angel/Watcher.  I can't help laughing.  Might explain why I "pop" in on portal scenes.  lol  That means my business card, if I had one, would say Private Investigator in Disguise.  Smliing

I will just keep going with the flow that's been flowing all along.  It's worked without me knowing what it is.   

Thank you Open!  Much appreciation for all your input.  Heart Praying Emoji

Hi Thomas,

What a beautiful and inspiring sharing - thankyou OK Hand Sign

I definitely concur with working to feel at home everywhere, and bringing home here.

AND (not but!), I know there's a harmony of existence that my soul also yearns for - like a fish swimming in the existence of its own vibration.

"That time will surely come. But not yet. Not yet!"

Much love

Dear Openhanders,

I'd like to give a very brief introduction on the traditional view on angels. 

The term angel supposedly comes from latin “Angelus”, which literally means “messenger”. Angels do not have a gender as they are not part of the duality. Here on earth, angels are mostly seen as male, which I guess is due to the male cycle (age of pisces) that we just went through. So angels have been known to be celestial messengers. As angels have been widely observed throughout the cultures of the world, there was established a hierarchy in many religions, with slight differences, but generally having the same statement.

This hierarchy establishes so-called choirs or hosts of angels that are groups of angels who are assigned to one certain principle and execute different tasks in this domain. These ‘higher-ranked’ angels represent their single principle in its purest form, for example the angels of mercy are exclusively merciful. One example, those of you who know Doreen who calls herself ‘Virtue’, the rank of ‘Virtue’ are the angels “through which signs and miracles are made in the world”. There is quite some information around on the internet for those who wish to look deeper into the traditional perspective on angels (Wikipedia is a good starting point).

Here the briefest of overviews, just so you have heard the terms:

The First Sphere angels serve as the heavenly servants of God and include Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones

The Second Sphere angels work as heavenly governors of the creation by subjecting matter and guiding and ruling the spirits and include Dominions, Virtues and Powers

The Third Sphere angels function as heavenly guides, protectors, and messengers to human beings and include Principalities, Archangels and Angels.

In my view, all this categorization is not so important, it’s more about the feeling when you connect to them.

Whom exactly to connect to? you might ask.

The angel that is closest to you is your Guardian Angel, who is assigned to each of us for our entire lifetime. Every human being has (at least) one and we know him already before we incarnate. So we are very dear friends and the angel watches over us at every moment.

There are angels for all kinds of things – plants, animals, trees, there are even country angels that watch over their nations. And then there are archangels, powerful ones who care very much about us and work restlessly for our realignment. I will write some more about them soon.

We can call on all these angels, however must expressly ask for their assistance, because they would never interfere with our free will. Just use your intuition, it’s a great pleasure to get to know your guardian angel and to know that you are never alone.


I just watched the new video on Starseeds from the Openhand Facilitator Course and I realized that I do feel at home here on earth. Seems very right to be here now. I’ll try to put it in words … it feels like being a vast cloud of energy floating in the universe, not connected to any certain place but rather belonging everywhere. How do others feel about this?

 With love,




Dear Pam,

thank you so much for sharing your beautiful story. The best way is always to experience something yourself and to see whether it feels right or not. In my lower mind, angels were linked to church and religion and I clearly had some difficult encounters with religion in more than one past life, so angels were on board with that Sentiment.

Angels are mostly seen in the religious context, however have arrived in the spiritual mainstream for a while. Still, much that is connected to angels is being pretty shallow nowadays. Just recently and out of curiosity, I visited the international angel congress (Engelkongress) in Salzburg, Austria - which is the largest official congress on angels worldwide with some maybe fourhundred people from various countries. The feeling was fluffy, rose-coloured and a bit dampened. The participants were ninety percent women above fifty years, so me, a young man of just above thirty was really an exception. It was nice, although it felt a bit artificial.

Open, i thought about a favourite angel song, and actually i didn't find one yet. I'll let you know once this changes :)

Heartfelt greetings,



Hi Thomas,
I’m really glad you posted this. I used to be very cynical about angels - strictly the territory of ‘marshmallows’ (pink fluffy people who give you a ‘sugar high’ but no real substance in the spiritual world) but then something happened which completely changed my perspective.
When my husband died I was waiting to feel his soul/spirit leave and after about 20 mins I felt a powerful energy in the room. It felt different from the way this sort of thing normally feels, but it was hardly a normal situation so I dismissed it. A year or so later when I began my spiritual journey in earnest I was at a workshop and unbeknownst to me part of it was working with angels. Oh no – not angels!! I raised my hand and asked to be excused from this as I didn’t want to spoil anyone else’s experience. The tutor suggested I work with her assistant instead, which I did. Despite my problem with angels I did my best to connect with them and was astonished to find that the energy was unmistakably the same as the one I had felt when my husband died. Instant conversion and reinforcement of your statement that ‘angels are here to help us with the transition at the end of our lives’. 
As you say, not easy to wrap your mind around, but, to me undoubtedly real!


Wow Thomas - I find your sharing deeply moving. And it's courageous to share what plenty would consider quite 'out there' concepts. Yes indeed, angels from various backgrounds are gathering here at this essential time in the shift to support humanity's transition. Everyone can be greatly comforted by that Thumbs Up Sign

I find this song connects me so much with the angellic realm and their purpose (do you have a favourite angellic song?)...

Hi Alex and Open,

thank you Open for your support for opening the space for a greater understanding of the angelic nature here in the community. Thank you Alex for this great question.

I agree with what Open said, every being is continuously learning as it's important to learn and evolve. Starsouls and also extraterrestrials work together with the angels, light beings and also our human light workers for the evolution of humanity. I guess that the major difference is about the quality of the soul. 

I am not so very much informed about the qualities of different starsoul groups, but let me try to go into some detail about angelic origins and qualities so you can inquire within.

Every species in the universe has their own angelic realm, with its own hierarchy of angels or angelic qualities. It seems also that these many angelic realms are interconnected. So whatever planet you incarnate on, you will eventually grow into a higher and higher spiritual understanding of things and when you achieve a really high state, you will become angelic (like Open said 'perfected beings').

So speaking about our mother earth, all our cultures have been visited by angels, simply because in the culture itself people have grown up to the spiritual level of angelic realms, thus people might have seen their ancestors as angels appearing before them. This lead to the categorisation we know about. These angels are here to help us with the transition at the end of our lifes as well as when we go to the new earth. What makes them such great assistance to us is that they know our problems and support us in our growth.

However, very few of these angelic humans have been reborn in the last century or so (and rather took the role of guardian angels, among 'the watchers'). It seems they haven't incarnated because they were not yet meant to be here and would only come back when humanity starts to have experiences of connection with the universe and opening up to the understanding of there being angels and other light beings. While doing literature research it seems as if angelic beings have been incarnating on earth just for a short while, maybe since the 80's or so. Their trademark is a certain soul quality as well as the etheric wings. Not everbody has wings.

The wings are a means of spreading love and light and understanding. Generally, wings can be used for healing in every way there is, so every incarnated angel does greatly benefit from evolving and training their wings. Archangels even have unlimited ressources when it comes to changing, shifting, spreading their wings while doing energy work up to the galactic and universal level.

This is not easy to wrap ones mind around, i myself also have lots of questions left :)

So far with love,


Hi Alex, since Thomas hasn't replied yet, I felt I'd jump in and offer the Openhand perspective on angels and starsouls.

I think it's important to say that there are different 'categorisations' and experiences that people will probably recall in different ways - that sometimes get lumped together.

When we use the term 'starsoul', it generally refers to souls who've traveled here from different constellations. These are not what you would call 'angels'.

In my knowing, there are different categories of angels. To me, the main form of these are 'perfected beings' (although all are always working on something). They're beings that have fully self-realised, ascended but decided to come back to support the evolution of others. These 'angels' may also be from parallel universes come to help the emergence of this Universe on its journey to nirvana.

And there is another group that 'sits in the 4D', having also journied greatly, but perhaps not yet at the evolution of the former group. Sometimes these are known as 'the watchers' - they are here to bring awareness to the immediate situation we face (for example) here on earth within the shift. And they guide souls that pass on into the angellic realm. Right now, there is a veritable web of such souls all around the earth in the 4D to support this passing on - especially as the shift culimates. It's not a closed web at all, but with openings out of the 3D and into a wider interconnection with the Universe.

Finally I have come across people who feel as if they are embodied angels, here and now. They can even feel like they've had, or have, energetic wings. Probably most of these have come from the group we might call 'the watchers'.

That's the Openhand take on it.
