So-called demons are actually thoughtforms. They are products of the human creative imagination and fed by countless generations of emotionally-driven mentation. Thoughtforms are not spiritual entities; they are quasi-lifeforms that exist only in the astral regions (and) can be very easily dissolved by submitting them to a burst of loving heart energy.
Since thoughtforms are generated and projected through human thought, it is these fear-impacted thoughtforms that can also become lodged within the subtle energy bodies of human beings. Anger, greed, and jealousy, are emotionally-driven thoughts that most human beings have felt during their lives. Intense anger, for example, directed at another person, will not only hurl a thoughtform that can lodge in the other person's subtle energy body, but will also have contributed energy to the astral thoughtform of anger.
These are the demons a shaman will try to remove; the neuroses a psychoanalyst seeks to expose; they will be the "diseases" that magnetic healers take upon themselves; as they will be plaguing the nightmares of the guilty. These will be the so-called demons that have tortured the consciousnesses of schizophrenics and saints--their repressed fears of hell and their desires of the flesh manifesting as terrifying, or seductively tempting demons, as appropriate to their psychic condition.
This is absolutely central: Angels are not thoughtforms.
However, thoughtforms can appear as angels as much as they can appear as demons. True angels, on the other hand, are spiritual beings who exist at a different and far higher frequency than the astral realms; and there are no demons in the higher frequencies.
This is also not the place to attempt to convince anyone of the actual reality of angels. If someone doesn't know the truth by now, they will find out when they die. Angels are very real beings indeed, all with personal histories and existences independent of human beings. Yet they function within the Inner Worlds to which both species, angels and humans, have access.
An everyday knowledge of angels through direct inner experience is, in fact, the true spiritual heritage of all human beings. It is a heritage of which we would have been fully and personally aware had not this world been among the thirty-seven planets that have become subject to one of the most destabilising of events to have occurred in the Inner Worlds. This was an uprising among the very angels whose function it was to oversee the spiritual growth and well-being of the human beings in their charge. It has been remembered in some esoteric traditions as The Lucifer Rebellion, and in others as The War in Heaven, and in a remarkable number of ancient or indigenous mythologies, as a profound planetary dislocation occurring in the distant past. Something terrible has happened, they all tend to report, way long ago, and it changed everything for life on Earth from that point onwards.
If the concept I'm going to introduce resonates with you; if it also makes rational sense and serves to answer some of the questions raised by life on this world. If it touches your heart and sparks off an inner knowing, then I've no doubt you'll have the good sense to follow your intuition to discover your own part in this cosmic drama of redemption.
The term Rebel Angels covers a broad category of those angels - seraphim and cherubim - who aligned themselves with Lucifer at the time of the angelic rebellion. The Bible suggests it was one-third of the angels who fell from Heaven. The rebel angels were removed from service after the rebellion, and not a word has been heard of them after that.
What might be considered an appropriate future destiny for the rebel angels? To cut a long and complex story short, "we have met the rebel angels and they are us!".
"Incarnate rebel angels" are currently still a tiny proportion of the overall population of the planet, (maybe) one hundred million out of a total of seven billion, but with "more coming in every day".
These rebel angel incarnates are not the fallen angels that Hollywood delights showing us raining havoc upon the world. Neither are incarnated rebel angels the Nephilim - they've long since come and gone, and they will not be returning!
Most of these reincarnates have no idea of their true spiritual heritage. They are most unlikely to be aware they are actually angels who have chosen mortal incarnation, because what is spiritually important to them is that they fully occupy and experience their humanness. Even so, they will tend to be the outsiders and rebels; they are frequently the intuitives and sensitives; the new ones will be among the Indigo and Crystal children. Many angel incarnates will be naturally spiritually orientated, and yet not overtly religious; among these will be many of the rebel angels who have been coming into mortal incarnation in waves over these last 50 or 60 years.
Incarnate rebel angels tend to grow up with the deep sense they are somehow very different from other people around them. In general, incarnate rebel angels appear to have extremely difficult and challenging childhoods and adolescence. They will tend to the ones who rebel against norms that other people accept without question; they'll obstinately defy what they believe is unjust authority; they will break the rules they don't believe apply to them; they'll be unusually sensitive, or artistic; some may come to think it is either them, or the world that is crazy. Many have been made wrong by parents or teachers, or have been shamed into compliance at an early age. Yet they will still be living out their lives with a nagging sense they are different from normal people--and never quite knowing why!
Unless this distinction is understood in adulthood, a rebel angel's profound sense of difference will likely be repressed or denied, and the reincarnate will settle into an ordinary, but no doubt uncomfortable, mortal life.
In some cases, the sense of difference is so pressing that the individual feels she or he has no choice but to embark on a journey of self-discovery, if only to mitigate the confusion and psychic pain of the constant pretence of normality. A few, no doubt, will have developed ways of integrating their uniquely angelic sensibilities into their mortal lives, but they are still going to feel uncomfortably out-of-kilter with their colleagues.
However, whatever the state of each individual's self-awareness, it is to seek their redemption that the rebel angels have been given this opportunity to incarnate as mortals in these transformational times. It is because adopting a mortal incarnation is considered such a challenge, as well as a privilege, that most rebel angels have been left unaware of their angelic heritages.
With the coming transformation so close upon us, it is time for incarnate rebel angels to wake up to who they truly are. It is not necessarily a pleasant awakening but it will move towards releasing deep psychic and emotional tensions, and it will allow the incarnated angels to function at a far higher and more effective level.
Being an incarnate rebel angel does not mean they are superior to normal human beings--they are simply different. Think of them perhaps more as experiments, as hybrids, as a new and different form of human being--as homo angelicus.
The return of the rebel angels can now be welcomed with open hearts and minds.
Incarnate rebel angels now in human bodies and who are waking up to their true natures, will find themselves aligned in their enthusiasm to bring this long cosmic melodrama to its transcendent resolution.
In the end, we're all doomed to become perfect.
