to write some music for her Angel Workshop...she needed it for her group meditation. This request open my creative soul and spirit. The music and concept came to me so quickly and transformed me. Now, there is an ANGELIC WAVES - PART 2/"The Celestial Journey Continues". ANGELIC WAVES - PART 1 was picked up by DSM Producers, a music library for the Film and TV industry.
Angelic myths arose in ancient Persia and became part of Jewish mystical tradition during the Babylonian exile (586-536 B.C.E). Through the Talmudic period (ca.200 B.C.E - 500 C.E.) some rabbis used angels in their explanations of biblical texts to represent Divine will and judgment. They were seen as supernal beings with an indepedent existence, but also subject to the rule of God.
from Kabbalah DECODER by Janet Berenson-Perkins/ Publisher, BARRON'S
According to ancient Jewish tradition the angels were the first intelligent beings created by God, and it is usually believed that they were all created in the same moment on the second day of Creation. God granted the angels free will, immortality and divine intelligence.
The task they were offered was to sustain the Universe and reflect the glory of God. Most of the angels aligned themselves with the Divine Will and, to show their adoration, surrendered their free will to God. Those angels who did not, eventually succumbed to pride and came into conflict with God.
