Are ‘Celestials’ assisting Humanity in Relations with Extraterrestrial Life?
Michael E. Salla, M.A., Ph.D.
Numerous individual testimonies and historical records describing physical contact with extraterrestrial life refer to highly developed ethical beings often witnessed in association with extraterrestrials. In contrast to extraterrestrials, these beings do not appear to be dependent on technologies for communication and travel. I use the term ‘celestial’ to refer to any life form that has achieved higher states of consciousness whereby they display a number of remarkable abilities without technological assistance. I describe the historical role played by ‘celestials’ in intervening in human and extraterrestrial affairs. I will show how increased awareness of the historic presence of celestials can assist humanity in making the transition to a mature galactic culture, wherein open contact with extraterrestrial civilizations occurs. Important policy choices need to be made over which extraterrestrial groups are reliable partners to work with, and which advanced technologies ought to be incorporated into human society. Celestials can help minimize unnecessary stress and conflict in this transition, and ensure that humanity’s evolution to a galactic culture is harmonious and peaceful.
Numerous individual testimonies and historical records describing physical contact with extraterrestrial life refer to highly developed ethical beings often witnessed in association with extraterrestrials. In contrast to extraterrestrials, these beings do not appear to be dependent on technologies for communication and travel. These highly developed ethical beings have been described as Angels, Ascended Masters, Elohim, and similar terms used to signify highly developed states of consciousness or ‘spiritual awareness’. I will use the term ‘celestial’ to refer to any life form that has achieved higher states of consciousness whereby they display a number of remarkable abilities without technological assistance.
Celestials are able to travel throughout the universe through willpower alone and are not confined to any physical location. This highly advanced ability distinguishes them from extraterrestrial entities that are dependent on advanced forms of technology for space-time travel as evidenced in ubiquitous sightings of ‘flying saucers’ and other extraterrestrial vehicles (ETVs). This ability to travel through space-time further distinguishes celestials from paranormal entities or ‘inter-dimensionals’ described by John Keel and others as ghosts, fairies, goblins, etc., that are bound by spatio-temporal factors to Earth but can move between dimensions.1
Also, celestials have attained advanced states of consciousness wherein they have attained a level of oneness or ‘cosmic consciousness’ with the universe, and do not identify themselves exclusively with a stellar region, civilization, time or dimension. This ability again distinguishes them from extraterrestrial entities that exclusively identify themselves with particular stellar regions, civilizations, times or dimensions. Finally, celestials are not limited to any one physical form, and can change their form at will to suit whatever circumstances they are in. This ability again distinguishes them from extraterrestrial entities that identify with a particular physical form or genetic characteristics, and require technology to change their physical characteristics or how they are perceived by others.
Celestials have been described in a wide range of sources from religious-historical texts, and more recently contactee experiences. Celestials are described in these sources as beings that serve a higher universal will that remains hidden to ordinary humans. Celestials have been described as often intervening to assist humanity’s evolution especially during periods of conflict involving extraterrestrial civilizations and advanced technologies. Celestials have been witnessed together with extraterrestrials who view the former as teachers, “Masters of Wisdom” or universal messengers whose advice is respectfully heard thought not always followed.
Extraterrestrials have been increasingly acknowledged by a number of contemporary authors as having played a leading role in the seeding of the human race and establishing technologically advanced civilizations.2 Less well known is the role played by celestials and their precise relationship with extraterrestrials in their complex interaction with humanity’s evolution. This is unfortunate since evidence suggests that celestials have played significant historical roles in humanity’s evolution by ensuring that advanced technologies are wisely incorporated, and intervening in conflicts between humanity and extraterrestrial civilizations.
Understanding the historical role of celestials has become especially important in the modern era where contact between extraterrestrial civilizations and humanity has been increasingly occurring. Extraterrestrials have interacted directly with the U.S. government and in some cases have signed agreements that have treaty status.3 This has led to the development and incorporation of advanced extraterrestrial technologies by the military corporate sector that in a few select cases has been allowed to filter through to mainstream society.4
In numerous other cases of extraterrestrial contact, extraterrestrials have directly interacted with private citizens who have described experiences ranging from inspired transformative encounters to invasive violations. This suggests different types of extraterrestrials are interacting with humanity with different modalities and motivations.5 Evidence points to a heightened degree of human extraterrestrial contact that will culminate in open contact wherein Earth becomes an interplanetary society. This will lead to important policy choices to be made over the extent to which, humanity should interact with different extraterrestrial groups and incorporate the advanced technologies offered by them.
In this paper, I will describe the historical role played by celestials in intervening in human and extraterrestrial affairs. I will show how increased awareness of the historic presence of celestials can assist humanity in making the transition to a mature galactic culture, wherein open contact with extraterrestrial civilizations occurs. Important policy choices need to be made over which extraterrestrial groups are reliable partners to work with, and which advanced technologies ought to be incorporated into human society. Celestials can help minimize unnecessary stress and conflict in this transition, and ensure that humanity’s evolution to a galactic culture is harmonious and peaceful.
The Book of Enoch and Celestials
Celestials have been described in religious-historical texts as transcendental entities that have intervened in human civilization in the form of guardians and protectors. Celestials have played leading roles in helping humanity deal with extraterrestrial entities or other life forms that have the power to significantly impact on human civilization. They appear to play critical roles in helping resolve conflicts associated with the use of advanced technologies. In some cases, celestials have directly intervened against extraterrestrial entities that have violated what appear to be universal norms such as non-intervention and the diffusion of advanced technologies to unprepared populations. In this and the next section, I examine passages from Judeo-Christian, and Vedic religious-historical traditions that describe celestials interacting with extraterrestrials and humanity.
The apocryphal Book of Enoch vividly illustrates the complex relationship between celestials, extraterrestrials and humanity. In the Book of Enoch, a group of 200 extraterrestrial entities called the ‘Nephilim’, or ‘fallen angels’, come to Earth allegedly due to their attraction to human females. The Nephilim subsequently begin to interact with humanity by interbreeding:
 And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto  them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men  and beget us children.' And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not  indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.' And they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations  not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.' Then sware they all together and bound themselves  by mutual imprecations upon it. And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn  and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it.6
The above passage points to extraterrestrials interbreeding with humans as a sin or violation of universal law. Presumably this stemmed from the progeny of such unions possessing genetic advantages that would inevitably led to them becoming rulers or exerting disproportionate influence to their numbers. Furthermore, extraterrestrial technologies would likely be shared with such progeny to assist them in asserting their rule over human society.
It’s important to point out that the author(s) of the Book of Enoch had drawn upon many elements of their account from earlier Sumerian writings concerning the Anunnaki. The Anunnaki were a group of extraterrestrials that came to earth and claimed to have bioengineered humanity as a worker race. In the process, the Anunnaki helped the establishment of the Sumerian civilization until it was destroyed by a series of cataclysmic events involving advanced weaponry.7 It appeared that the Anunnaki involved humanity in their fratricidal warfare that led to the destruction of a number of cities in Mesopotamia, and predictably an exodus from the affected lands. Abraham was a refugee from the city of Ur who brought with him sufficient knowledge, wealth, family members and even technology to launch the Jewish nation in Palestine.8 The Anunnaki described in Sumerian cuneiform texts are referred to as the Nephilim in the Book of Enoch, The Book of Genesis and other Judaic texts.
The relationship between humanity and the extraterrestrials led by Semjaza is not entirely negative since the latter teaches humanity a range of technologies and esoteric knowledge essential for developing an advanced civilization. This reflected cuneiform accounts of how the Anunnaki had helped in establishing the Sumerian civilization in Mesopotamia around 3800 BCE.9 The knowledge from the Nephilim ranged from metallic weapons, cosmetics, jewelry, divination, astronomy, weather observation, agricultural science and herbology:
 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all  colouring tinctures. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they  were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjaza taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, 'Armaros the resolving of enchantments, Baraqijal (taught) astrology, Kokabel the constellations, Ezeqeel the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun, and Sariel the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven . . .10
Whereas extraterrestrials are depicted as teachers of advanced technologies and civilization, celestials are depicted as instruments of universal will. In the process of teaching advanced technologies to humanity, the extraterrestrials have fomented much devastating warfare and suffering that has led to humanity lamenting to heaven for relief. The Book of Enoch describes the conflict that then occurs between the Nephilim and a group ‘righteous’ angelic entities or ‘celestials’:
 And then Michael, Uriel, Raphael, and Gabriel looked down from heaven and saw much blood being  shed upon the earth, and all lawlessness being wrought upon the earth. And they said one to another: 'The earth made without inhabitant cries the voice of their cryingst up to the gates of heaven.  And now to you, the holy ones of heaven, the souls of men make their suit, saying, "Bring our cause  before the Most High."' And they said to the Lord of the ages: 'Lord of lords, God of gods, King of kings, and God of the ages … Thee. Thou seest what Azazel hath done, who hath taught all unrighteousness on earth and revealed the eternal secrets which were (preserved) in heaven, which  men were striving to learn: And Semjaza, to whom Thou hast given authority to bear rule over his associates. And they have gone to the daughters of men upon the earth, and have slept with the  women, and have defiled themselves, and revealed to them all kinds of sins. And the women have  borne giants, and the whole earth has thereby been filled with blood and unrighteousness. And now, behold, the souls of those who have died are crying and making their suit to the gates of heaven, and their lamentations have ascended: and cannot cease because of the lawless deeds which are  wrought on the earth.11
It appears that the celestials are concerned about the way in which advanced technologies have been disseminated to an unprepared humanity, and how human sovereignty has been usurped by the progeny of the Nephilim. A specific complaint is that extraterrestrials have “revealed the eternal secrets which were (preserved) in heaven, which men were striving to learn.” This reflects a similar conflict described in Sumerian records over the extent to which humanity would be given advanced technologies and knowledge. The celestials are then depicted as carrying out universal will insofar as they intervene to end the rule of the Nephilim (also described as the ‘Watchers’) that have brought about an unbalanced state of affairs on the planet in terms of the level of advanced technologies and human consciousness.
Each of the celestials or archangels is given specific instructions in dealing with Nephilim/Watchers by the transcendental “Most High” described in the Book of Enoch. The archangel Raphael is tasked to bind and imprison one of the leading Nephilim also described as one of the fallen angels, and to heal the earth.12 In the next set of instructions, the celestials are instructed to destroy the Nephilim by fomenting war amongst them.
 … And to Gabriel said the Lord: 'Proceed against the bastards and the reprobates, and against the children of fornication: and destroy [the children of fornication and] the children of the Watchers from amongst men [and cause them to go forth]: send them one against the other that they may destroy each other in  battle: for length of days shall they not have. And no request that they (i.e. their fathers) make of thee shall be granted unto their fathers on their behalf; for they hope to live an eternal life, and  that each one of them will live five hundred years.' 13
In the above passage the celestials have the power to manipulate the extraterrestrials to destroy themselves, in much the same way the extraterrestrials or Nephilim have fomented war and strife among humanity. The ancient wars fought among the extraterrestrials that used advanced weapons that destroyed their cities are described by the researchers Zecharia Sitchin and Joseph Farrell.14 Finally, the Archangel Michael is asked to capture the leader of fallen angels, Semjaza, and his cohorts, and imprison them in hidden locations throughout the Earth:
… And the Lord said unto Michael: 'Go, bind Semjaza and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves  with them in all their uncleanness. And when their sons have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgment and of their consummation, till the judgment that is  for ever and ever is consummated…. Destroy all wrong from the face of the earth and let every evil work come to an end: and let the plant of righteousness and truth appear: and it shall prove a blessing; the works of righteousness and truth' shall be planted in truth and joy for evermore. 15
In the above passage, the celestials led by Archangel Michael are depicted as protectors of humanity, and ended what appears to have been a highly unjust and violent civilization dominated by the Nephilim and their progeny. It appears that the extraterrestrials main fault was to have tempted humanity with advanced technology and knowledge when it was not ready to responsibly integrate this. This led to an imbalance between humanity’s level of technological sophistication and higher states of consciousness. The celestials therefore appear in the Book of Enoch as ultimate protectors of a humanity that is easily led astray by manipulative extraterrestrials that exploit humanity’s desire for advanced technologies and knowledge. Rectifying the imbalance between advanced technology and higher states of consciousness appears to be the main goal of the celestials. A similar dynamic appears in Vedic accounts of celestials interacting with extraterrestrials and humanity.
