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,
