Fragments of Spiritual Knowledge 53

Angels and fairies are the two most widely known of all the spiritual creatures of the spiritual universe. This is true of fairies because the fairy was associated with man in the earlier stages of his development, or before he even entered into the human form, and because this spirit is especially fond of children and child life, and delights in entertaining and visiting with them, though unperceived by them. The same is true of the angels because the angels are the official representatives of the Creator of the universe, and have been known to man from the remotest period of his intelligence.

Angels are the most highly developed spiritual creatures of the spiritual universe. They are clothed in raiment of spotless white, composed of rays of light emitted from their own spirit bodies, which throw a radiant light around them that is blinding to the human eye for a distance of many feet.

Angels seldom travel alone. Usually, they travel in twos and threes, and sometimes in vast hosts, according to the mission on which they journey. These messengers from the heavenly throne travel here and there throughout the whole spiritual universe and often are assigned tasks that keep them for long periods of time on or near some one of the physical material planets.

Angels sometimes visit the bedside of a departing spirit from this earth life when in some way that departing spirit has performed some especially important mission during its earthly journey, and has attained to an especially high state of spiritual development in human form.

Again, a single angel, or a host of angels, may be assigned to watch over, or to guard, some spirit-life that has been sent to earth, on some mission, in human form.
