Hierarchy of Angels - Your Angel Network

The Hierarchy of Angels also known as the Angel Network, this Hierarchy within the Angelic Realm is mirrored throughout the rest of the universe. The Angel community is the perfect example of this hierarchal order and structure.

On this page you will find a discussion around your angel network, on each of the following spheres in the Angelic Sphere:

Your Angel Network - The Christian Angelic Hierarchy

The nine orders or choirs of angels in the Hierarchy of Angels are divided into three hierarchies, each of which is divided into three orders: the highest, the intermediate and the lower. Each section of the community has its own purpose and energy.

In the table below the left hierarchal organization of Angels are according to Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite in the Fourth or Fifth century, in his book "The Celestial Hierarchy" and is considered the standard in the Western World.

In the right table is the Hierarchal organization of Angels from the comparative study of the Old Testament and New Testament passages, including their etymology (history of the words) and semantics, several theological works (which contain variations) and esoteric Christian teachings.

The First Hierarchal Sphere

Heavenly Counselors - (Old Testament sources)

Hierarchy of Angels Dionysius the Areopagite Hierarchy of Angels Old and New Testament
1 - Seraphim Seraphim
2 - Cherubim Cherubim
3 - Thrones Ophanim (Thrones/Wheels)

The Second Hierarchal Sphere

Heavenly Governors - (New Testament sources)

Hierarchy of Angels Dionysius the Areopagite Hierarchy of Angels Old and New Testament
4 - Dominions Thrones (Greek language - thronos)
5 - Virtues Dominions (Greek language - kuriotes)
6 - Powers Principalities (Greek language - arche)

The Third Hierarchal Sphere

Heavenly Messengers

Hierarchy of Angels Dionysius the Areopagite Hierarchy of Angels Old and New Testament
7 - Principalities Powers (Greek language - exousia)
8 - Archangels Archangels
9 - Angels Angels

Personally I like to add the Elemental Kingdom to the Angel Network just below the angels and don't forget your own personal helper from the Angelic Kingdom... your Guardian Angel!

The Jewish Angelic Hierarchy

According to Jewish Encyclopedia, "Angelology", Maimonides, in his "Yad ha-Chazakah: Yesodei ha-Torah", states there are ten hierarchal ranks of Angels in the Jewish Angelic Hierarchy, and as above the Angel Network following begins at the highest rank.

Rank Angel Notes
1. Chayot Ha Kadesh  
2. Ophanim  
3. Erelim See Isaiah 33:7
4. Hashmallim See Ezekiel 1:4
5. Seraphim  
6. Malakhim Messengers, Angels
7. Elohim "Godly Beings"
8. Bene Elohim "Sons of Godly Beings"
9. Cherubim See Talmud Hagigah 13b
10. Ishim "Manlike Beings", see Daniel 10:5

The Kabalistic Angelic Hierarchy

Tree Of Life

The Tree of Life is one of the most familiar of the Sacred Geometry Symbols. The structure of the Tree of Life is connected to the sacred teachings of the Jewish Kabala. The Tree of Life describes the descent of the divine into the manifest world, and methods by which the divine union may be attained in this life. It can be viewed as a map of the human psyche, and of the workings of creation, both manifest and not.

Tree of Life

According to the Kabala as described by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn the Angel Network, Angelic Hierarchy is as follows:

There are ten Archangels, each commanding one of the choirs (orders) of angels and corresponding to one of the Sephirot as seen in the "Tree of Life" above. As you can see this hierarchal layout is very similar to the Jewish Angelic Hierarchy.

Rank Choir of Angels Translation Archangel Sephirah
1. Chayot Ha Kadesh Living Ones Metatron Keter (Crown)
2. Ophanim Wheels Raziel Chokmah (Wisdom)
3. Erelim Thrones Tzaphkiel Binah (Understanding or Intelligence)
4. Hashmallim Brilliant Ones Tzadkiel Chesed (Mercy or Grace)
5. Seraphim Fiery Serpents Khamael Gevurah (Severity or Power)
