I visited Theolyn Cortens at her home in Newcastle Emlyn, Wales to speak about her work with angels and the new e-classes she has launched. Theolyn lives within sight of atmospheric castle ruins and my walk to her door was accompanied by the sound of the river rushing by.
Theolyn and I first met several years ago at a Mind, Body, Spirit fair. I knew of her by reputation and she sent me a review pack of her Angels Script cards. These are interesting cards containing images of the Archangels of the Tree of Life and Script cards of angelic letters that look as though they are written by joining stars with light. I found the messages that I and my students obtained using these cards were both apt and wise. Visit The Angels Script to try them for free.
Speaking with Theolyn over a wholesome bowl of soup we discussed her experience of angels and the new messages that are coming through to her. Theolyn has had a lifetime touched by mystical experience and revelation. Her uncle was a Theosophist who became a follower of Krishnamurti and her aunt was an astrologer back in the days when these esoteric interests would have marked them as very strange folk. Theolyn’s direct, conscious contact with the angelic realms spans nearly 30 years to 1982 when an experience of Archangel Sandalphon led her to study the Archangels of the Tree of Life. She understands that they work as Guardians of the Gates of Light that allow us through when we are ready to access higher consciousness.
I was aware that there was more depth to Theolyn’s work than is commonly found in angel books. There is a good balance between the messages she has channelled directly from the angelic realms and the academic research she has pursued. Her Master's degree was completed with a thesis on the Archangels. She has a more learned approach to angels that will appeal to people who like something a little more intellectual, though not at all heavy going. Her work has been affectionately dubbed ‘Angels for Grown ups’.
Theolyn's most recent book, ‘Your Guardian Angel Needs You!’ will be available next year and will include some of the experiences of her students on the new e-class of the same name. She explained that e-classes enable her to reach students all over the world and the first has been so popular that another group will start in April. Students receive a weekly video from Theolyn that often builds on experiences they've had and the questions they've raised that week, an audio file with meditations to download and a pdf of support materials. In addition they can share their thoughts in a private Facebook area for the course and if they need to make comments in private they can speak to Theolyn by email.
Theolyn is currently writing The Return of the Nephalim. She channelled twelve messages from these beings over a space of twelve months heralded by a vision of the Dove. I questioned Theolyn about the quality of messages coming through from the Nephalim as there are references to them as ‘fallen’. Theolyn says it depends on which source you read. In history they were also known as the 'Great Ones' and ‘falling’ may be linked to 'Falling back in Amazement' which would be a fairly standard human response to seeing a giant being shining with light!
The Nephalim Theolyn has worked with are twelve glowing beings, half angelic, half human. She reassured me that their messages are always loving and she has been told that their ‘fall’ was their decision to descend from their existance as purely spiritual beings to take on physical bodies for the purpose of teaching humankind in a more direct and tangible way. The bad press may have been a result of the difficulties in remembering your spiritual mission once you are in the denseness of physical incarnation.
The common view on Ascension implies that matter is somehow bad and needs to be transcended and lifted away from. Yet we are living on a physical Earth that needs us to be deeply rooted in order to help birth her into the New Age. The Nephalim instead guide us to ‘Descend’ . This is not a call to sink into depravity, rather to bring the Light force DOWNWARDS onto the Planet where it can help the transition.
I agree that the Ascension process is really about us raising our vibration so that the greatest Light force possible flows down through us. In this way we become a pathway for the Light and we truly help enlighten those around us for the good of the Earth and all beings upon it.
