Archangels: Swedenborg’s View

Those of you familiar with the work of Abraham-Hicks will know that Abraham is described as a group of spiritual beings who present as a single consciousness when communicating through Esther Hicks. Interestingly, this is reminiscent of the way in which Emanuel Swedenborg (1688 – 1772) described Archangels.

Swedenborg was a Swedish scientist and mystic who reported extensively on his experiences with the spiritual world. In contrast to most current literature on angels, in which Archangels are described as single beings, Swedenborg reported that each Archangel is in fact a group of angels who all have one specific function. These angelic societies form a group consciousness and present as a single entity when communicating with us.
