I hate to be the one to break the news to you, but there is no such thing as an incarnated earth angel.
I know that this can be devastating news for some of you. In fact, it can be downright shocking, because you have been lead to believe that, not only are you an earth angel, but there are several like you. Before we go any further, I want to make something clear.
There is nothing wrong with being human. Nothing at all. We are all expressions of the Divine, and this is hard for many to us to accept, because we see the damage that our fellow humans are causing to this world. We look at other humans who are blinded by darkness and causing harm to the earth and to others, and we feel dismayed.
“How can I belong to this horrible race of despicable people?” you may wonder.
See, the reason people begin to believe that they are incarnated angels, gnomes, fairies, mermaids and the like, is because this belief makes them feel special. Everyone, at some point in time, has felt as if they didn’t belong. They couldn’t find people that understood them, or that they felt a strong bond with. They may have even been bullied, harassed and belittled.
The belief that you have been treated this way because you are an incarnated being can wrap you up in a feeling of ecstasy and comfort, because now you understand that the reason you have felt this way is because you are special. You’re not just different, but you’re special, with a special purpose.
Of course you can not connect with these simple humans…you’re an angel.
And that, right there, is a trap of the ego.
The soul and the ego both want to be recognized, respected, accepted and loved. Yet both have different ways of going about this. The soul wants to be connected with others. In fact, it longs for it. The ego wants to be elevated above others. The belief that you’re an angel fills the void while satisfying both the soul and the ego.
Yes, there are beings that incarnate, but angels are not one of them. They have nothing to gain from such an experience. To incarnate into human form wouldn’t make any sense, because angels are here to deliver messages and to provide other services from one realm to anther. How could they do that in human form? What benefit would it serve?
There is a scripture from the Christian bible that has been grossly misinterpreted by those teaching that angels incarnate onto this earth. That scripture is,
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
They use this scripture to claim that some people are unaware that they themselves are angels, but that’s not what this scripture is saying. Not at all. This scripture is saying that we need to be kind and loving towards people we don’t know, because those people may not be people at all. They could be angels in disguise.
It’s similar to the story told at the beginning of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
“Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter’s night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman’s ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there.”
That’s not to say that an angel is going to curse you or punish you if you should treat an angel in disguise poorly. The truth is that karma will pay you a visit regardless if it’s a person or angel whom you treated poorly.
Now, I don’t know if the teachers who talk about earth angels believe this, or if they are preying on the emptiness that some people feel. I believe it’s entirely possible that there are people in both camps.
Nicole, you ask, how do you know that angels don’t incarnate? How can you even say that?
That’s a great question. Let’s dive into this.
What Do Angels Do?
- Angels are guardians. In short, they protect the Universe. There are several different realities and dimension that are layered upon our own. The angels are entrusted to keeping these realities separated and balanced, so that if one reality makes a horrible decision (like blowing up their own planet), that it won’t cause too much of a negative ripple among the other galaxies and dimensions that are tied to it. This is a complex topic, and I’ll write about it in depth another time.
- Angel are record keepers. These are the beings that help karma out. They take note of what’s happened when and where. They decide when karmic debts are due.
- Angels are warriors. In different books and stories worldwide, we hear stories of angels who fight evil forces.
- Angels are messengers. They deliver messages to and from different realms.
- Angels are counselors. They help us through the challenges we face during our time here on earth.
Given the duties of angels, it doesn’t make sense for them to incarnate here, because they wouldn’t be able to do what they were created to do.
If I’m not an earth angel, then what am I?
You, dear soul, are human. You are the Divine expressing itself in human form. You carry with you a an amazing soul, and with it, the ability to create a fulfilling life.
