Questioner: Have angels appeared as many artists have depicted with the large wings?
The Council: Spirits, the angels, have a body to be sure, but it is a spiritual body, and the only reason why artists depict angels with wings and the only reason why men at times have seen the angels with wings, it is because that is what their psychological and emotional make-up require for them to see. If a heavenly being were to appear to you in its total grandeur, you would be scared out of your wits. So this is toned down, in such a way that it can be more acceptable to you.
As wise and as intelligent and as advanced and open-minded as man thinks he is, he is but a babe. To see the glories of heaven would, shall we say, most assuredly scare the hell out of everybody in the physical.
The Council: Why?
Questioner: I'd like to know what it looks like.
The Council: Because it is so overpowering and so beautiful and so large that you could not accept it. You would say that it is too much and you would fall in fright. But you see the Divine loves so much that He is not going to overpower you, even in such a way, so that whenever He sends those emissaries of His to help man, He sends them in such a way that they are inspired but yet not overpowered. They still have the free choice; they still have the decision without being overpowered. You see?
Questioner: I know there is a belief that sometime angels and I don't mean to be -- perhaps I am saying this literally -- angels appear as men, that there have been cases, one particular case where an individual was close to losing his physical life and two men appeared who had never been around that area before or after and rescued him. And some ministers feel that these could be angels in disguise.
The Council: We shall not make a comment on that particular situation. Mind you, this is not a comment on that particular situation; but it is true that angels can appear to man in the form of man. Now to be sure those that are viewing the angel will sense that it is a heavenly being, but this depends on, as we said, the emotional make-up and the psychological make-up of the individual. If they are in tune with Divine things, if they are religious, then that will determine the appearance of such things, of such emissaries of God. There are some that would require seeing a man with wings or someone that is of neuter appearance with wings, then if this were necessary to be sure the Lord God would see to it that they have such a messenger. But the angels have spiritual bodies which do not have physical form.

With the holiday season approaching I thought it might be good to post something from William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, about food and stress. This time of year we find that there are more opportunities to eat more than normal and not pay attention to what we eat. Although the holiday season is supposed to be one of joy and happiness it can also be stressful and depressing for many. The following are some of The Council's thoughts on maintaining a healthy body.
The Council: Now there are some bodies or some systems that will take more acidity than others, and there are some that will need a degree less or much less acidity introduced into the system. This is where health lies: in what is the proper balance for the individual body. Does it function better on a higher acidity level or on a lower acidity level?
Now, a base line that one could start at, if one would say the normal would be just slightly on the acidic side but just slightly. If all were put on such a diet so as to bring this condition about, then one could judge from that as a standard whether a particular body or system would need a higher acidity level or a lower acidity level. Do you understand?
Questioner If you put everyone at the same level of acidity, then the different body types would have to have either higher or lower to keep them healthy?
The Council: Yes. Now, what we said was, just slightly above the norm or the average or the medium level or the neutral balance. So, if the base line were struck at slightly above the acidity side, use that as the base line and then determine whether that individual or that system is functioning properly. So it would be a matter of trial and error, although in that case then, if all were given the proper diet, that case then one could judge on the basis of the body structure itself. But you would have to hit the common denominator or some line of equality.
Questioner: If an individual had then the perfect body chemistry or acidic balance for his particular body type, would that mean then that he would be then almost, it would be very difficult for him to get a virus or a disease? It would be taken care of pretty quickly by the system?
The Council: It would mean that the body would be in much better condition to handle any kind of infection or invasion from the outside or even from the inside.
Questioner: Could I ask a little more difficult question then? Within this body chemistry how would meditation work? If you had the ideal body chemistry, the meditation would still add to the strength of that body?
The Council: Meditation would be a needed factor to eliminate, how shall we put it, unnecessary stress or excessive stress. The stress is what throws the system off. Stress is actually the killer of the physical body. It is the infector of the physical body. Once stress overtakes the physical body, then it throws the immune system off. It throws the entire system off, but it weakens, absolutely weakens the immune system, which opens the door then for all manner of sicknesses.
One of the best preventive maintenances for the physical body is daily meditation. If one were to incorporate that into their daily routine, they would have much less sicknesses. So, if you consider a health maintenance program, by all means, it would have to have meditation incorporated into it. Very few of your medicines actually cure. In most cases, they simply eliminate or cover up the symptoms, thereby relieving the additional stress and allowing the natural healings of the body itself to do the rest. Now, that is in most cases. Do you understand?
So, if this is the basis of modern day medication, why not take a daily dosage of meditation and be one step ahead?
Question: My question now is getting to other categories. One is the junk food, and one is the well-prepared meals. How then would both of these be tied in with all the allergies that you hear of?
The Council: Well, the junk food definitely deteriorates the body, in that it causes stress. It is the chemicals or the preservatives in the junk food. Anytime you prepare something that is supposed to be edible and you set it on your shelf and three months later it is still edible, there is something wrong with that product. By nature, prepared food cannot be good for you if left on the shelf for three months or six months.
So the chemicals to give this length of life to the food is what is detrimental to the system or to the body. If you prepare your meals from the cleanest food possible or the purest food possible, you will automatically have a much healthier body and a more normal body. This would then give you a greater margin of safety when it comes to the impurities of the rest of your society. But when you take all the impurities that come at you in your normal-day life and ingest even more in your food chain, you are just beating yourself over the head twice fold.
Also, much that can be done to eliminate some of the undesirable effects of preservatives and what have you are those foods that are prepared in the home, even though they may carry a degree of chemical in them, if by the person preparing them, the food, it is prepared as an act of love, this will have much to do in neutralizing the adverse effects of whatever it is that is in the food that should not be. Many times this is done automatically without the individual who is preparing the food even conscious of this factor. But if more of a conscious effort were placed on this, it would be much more influential. It is the same with a blessing before you eat. What good does a meal blessing have on the meal? Well, believe us, it has much good, because you are energizing that food with a very positive thought and a very positive outlook, and that goes into your system then adding to the original thought that instigated the prayer before a meal. Also, if each member at the table or at the meal brings their mind into that framework of prayer, they have a moment or two of a form, even though it may be very light, of meditation which brings again the body into a better balance.

This Quote comes from William LePar's new book - Return to Eden, The Universal Being Lectures of William LePar. Every year SOL presented their conference in October. Mr. LePar was the featured speaker. He often prepared a year in advance for this lecture because he felt that it was the highlight of his speaking season. The book begins with his lecture on the Nature of Reality and proceeds through a number of subjects that range from Kirlian photography and auras to the structure of the mind and meditation, the Passion of Christ and how to love oneself. The following is the closing to his lecture on Predestination or Free Will.
What’s life all about? It’s very simple. It’s the art of loving, the art of caring, the art of compassion, the art of accepting responsibilities and commitments, and fulfilling them with a dignity, with an honor, so that you are not only showing proper respect to the other individual, to the other soul, but you are showing proper respect to yourself. You are taking on a god quality. When it comes time to leave this life, leave something more behind than a dead body, some clothes, and some money. Leave behind a legacy of love, a legacy of compassion, a legacy of concern, a legacy of respect, a legacy of dependability in fulfilling commitments. Leave a legacy of the kind of god you can be.
When you leave this lifetime, leave a legacy of love. Leave a legacy that says this life, this world, this earth, is just a teeny bit better because I walked through it. It’s not hard. We have one hundred and one opportunities every day to show kindness, to show anything that takes us out of ourselves above our ego, and shows that we have a goodness and a quality inside that can help others and in return those same things will be shown to you in your time of need. Don’t expect them. Don’t ask for them. Don’t sit on your duff waiting for them. They’ll be there. Leave a legacy of your goodness when you leave.

I promised to present something on color. I believe that these two thoughts from Mr. LePar's spiritual source, The Council might be interesting to many because it talks of communication with someone who is asleep and who may live a distance from the sender.
Questioner: I would like to know if you could express to us or to myself, the relationship between color and sound?
The Council: They are basically vibrations, energies. The sound being the lower, the color being the higher. These can be used also in attuning oneself on the vibration level, or in the idea or vibration. When one looks at the body not as such but as a concentrated form of energy or vibration, then when one realizes this is really the case, then sound and colored lights can be applied to do many things for the spirit. But it is limited. The only true answer for the spirit rising its vibrations is to love, to love, to love.
Questioner: Can a grandparent talk to a grandchild who lives in another city at nighttime when they are asleep?
The Council: If the grandparent or grandmother or grandfather can control their mind and direct it, yes. It works more in the line of what is referred to as telepathy, but it is still conversation with an entity in an altered state of consciousness. We would suggest in a situation like that, if necessary to use visualization as an assistance in it, we would suggest using a beam of light that the words or sentences are carried on. Depending on your own personal evaluation or evolvement or concepts of color, you may choose any color of light or ray that you would like. The most common in individuals would be a color pink which would carry those words on a rainbow or arc or beam of light evolved or enveloped in love. Now the pink, as a general rule, each of you have your own personal interpretations, but the overall concept and accepted motivating force behind the color pink is a guiding or protective or brotherly love, so if you have that concept of the color pink, visualize your words being enveloped or surrounded by that color. Then it becomes, how shall we say, charged a little more.

A questioner asked William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, about the power of turquoise.
The Council: There is an old saying about turquoise, that if it is given to a friend by a friend it acts as to, shall we say, ward off evil influences. Possibly a more accurate explanation would be that certain minerals do have certain properties which do affect physical. Now turquoise, when given to a friend by a friend, will shatter if that which received the turquoise is the object of a negative bombardment or a negative thought, especially those which are of the intensity to bring harm not only to the physical but to the spiritual of that individual.
There are certain stones that have certain qualities or certain abilities because of the electromagnetic field that they create in their construction. Turquoise, if it is in truth given to someone, given to a friend by a friend, can act as a focal point for negativity, but the turquoise is not the only stone. These secrets, as some may refer to them, are not really secrets but are handed down from generation to generation and often are looked upon as legend and old-wives' tales; but this is one particular case when this is so. The thing that makes this an active part of the turquoise stone is that in the attitude in which it is given. If you truly are a friend of someone's, if you truly love them, if you truly are concerned about them, and you give that particular stone to them in friendship and with the hopes that it will protect the individual, to be sure then that turquoise stone will be a protective stone. Now, once the turquoise is cracked, then it has accepted the negative charge and is no longer valuable. To re-establish the protective shield a new turquoise would have to be replaced.
Questioner: What if you just buy it yourself?
The Council: No, it is the attitude, (***). It is the attitude.
Questioner: Then if I bought it with that attitude in mind for myself?
The Council: No. That would be self-love then. You see? If you were to do that, buy a turquoise for your husband and give it to him, explaining the story and hope that he would do the same.
But it is not something that you need to protect yourself. It is a beautiful gesture to show one's concern and love for another one, but prayer can be even more effective than any stone. The other stone that offers such protection is the ruby.

In this quote from William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, they give some insight into the use of lapis. They also provide a warning to the questioner about this particular stone. At the end of their message they point out the general value of wearing those stones and metals that are beneficial to humankind.
The Council: The lapis is a stone that contains extremely high vibrations and overindulgence in such vibrations can be as detrimental to an entity as it can be helpful.
Some people can use lapis on the bare skin. Very, very few can do this. It should be, for the general understanding, should be worn away from the skin. In other words the stone should never be worn around the neck where it actually comes in contact with the skin itself. In this case, it should be encased in some sort of covering, one that is completely sealed off. The lapis in the case here, we would suggest wear it as you feel or desire to, but do not allow yourself to get into the habit of wearing the lapis. When you have a desire to wear it, wear it for a matter of a few hours and then remove it until you definitely feel the desire to wear it again.
Questioner: Yes, would you give me an idea how it would affect my life to wear lapis?
The Council: Lapis is not a stone that we would advise you to wear very often. It has a tendency to overexcite the emotional aspects that run closely with the spiritual and for you now at this time we would suggest that you wear it only on extremely rare occasions. If we were to put it this way, if tomorrow you have a desire to wear lapis, then do not wear it, but the next time do wear it.
Each stone or metal has many effects on the individuals, some are more effective on individuals than others, and it is not really wise to become too involved with such things. In certain cases it is very beneficial but as a general rule we will not make it a policy to go much into such things.
We have given you a number of stones to be carried on your person and a metal. The stones and the metal can do nothing for you, absolutely nothing in themselves. The only time they become effective for you is with the proper frame of mind. It is true that every element created has a vibration or an energy and as the elements are combined they have a combined effect of each of the elements. With the stones that we gave you, those will truly help you, but only if your attitude or your heart is in the right place; because as this energy or vibration is brought in contact with the body, it is magnified by the sincerity and the purity of the heart and the mind, and thus it helps to rebalance the spiritual and the material aspects of the body, but the amplifying source is the heart and the sincerity to truly develop spiritually. Without this then you might as well throw the stones away, you might as well throw the metal away, for you would only be carrying excess baggage.

In this quote from William LePar's spiritual source they tell us that those of us in the earth plane or the material manifestation have lost, to a degree, our awareness of our true godly state. It has been partially severed. We still need this connection to survive, and it is our goal to strengthen that connection until we have recovered all of our awareness that has been lost over time.
This posting is a little longer than most of my posts, but I think that you will find the explanation very interesting. The last portion was posted previously, so what you have here is a more complete picture of The Council's explanation.
Questioner: You said, "In the beginning, at the time of the Fall, it was necessary to tap into God for our essence to create," and, if this is so, is it still necessary, are we still dependent on that?
The Council: Most assuredly, you are still dependent on it. Now, what example could we give that would be easily understood? Suppose you were to take the electrical system of a home, now you have a wire from your power company coming to your home, and it goes into the house to a master box, and from that box then you have all sorts of other wires that run here and there. You may cut off any of the other wires and the rest will work properly. Or, from the point of that wire that you cut off, beyond the cut-off point anything up to that would run, anything beyond that would not. As long as the main line comes into the house, there is life in the house, there is electricity; but suppose that you did not sever any of the smaller lines but severed the main line that came into the house, what would you have running that used electricity in the house then? Nothing. In some way you could apply this example to the connection you have with the Divine; you see, you were acts of love and these acts of love, although you may consider them to be tremendous beings (in your physical mind, of course, you cannot truly comprehend) but in the spiritual awareness, each of you was a tremendous ball of energy that was formed and developed, but this energy was in its very, shall we say, fetus stage, so that it constantly needed nourishment for its further growth, much as a mother carries a child. As long as the child is within her womb, she must feed that child and it is the same with you. Your Divine Father constantly fed you for your growth. Before you were fully matured where you could go your own way under your own steam, you decided to cut the umbilical cord. Well, actually, you can never do that, but we are using symbols or figurative speaking.
Since you decided to sever the umbilical cord, you had not fully matured, so as it stands now you have severed only part of that cord, so that the full intensity of your godly awareness is not yours; that is by choice. You cannot exist if you sever that cord completely, for that which feeds you would not be there, and eventually you would, so to speak, burn yourself out: the same in the heavens, there are suns that grow in intensity, but in time they burn themselves out, and they no longer exist. Now, each of you are still babes: you are still in your mother's womb; and the Divine is still feeding you, giving you the nourishment that you so justly need for your existence.
Think of it in another way. God is the living essence of all that is created spiritual and material, and as this essence you simply feed off of it; you are suspended in this ocean of love, in this universe of love; you are similar to a beautiful goldfish in a bowl, but a bowl that is so tremendous that it encompasses all that is ever and ever will be created, and each of you are capable of having your own universe to work in. You cannot live or exist in any place without touching the life-giving love of the Infinite Father. As a beautiful piece of needlepoint or tapestry is developed, it is first constructed from a backing; the stitches are placed very precisely in certain places in this backing, and as time progresses then a beautiful picture is formed, and the backing is completely covered. You are the beautiful stitches; the backing that holds those stitches together is the Divine that is the basis of the tapestry; the stitches are of no value without the backing, but the backing has a value for anyone else who wishes to apply their stitches to it. The foundation is always the necessity.
