The 7 Major Archangels
Archangel Michael is probably the most well-known of the archangels. He’s the great protector and the most powerful of the archangels.
You can call on Michael when you need protection of any kind. If you’re scared or concerned for your safety, Michael will be there to help you. He offers courage and guidance when you feel lost, and he loves to help healers perform their work.
Archangel Michael is often depicted holding a golden sword. When practicing a cord-cutting meditation, you can envision Michael swooping in and cutting the negative energy cord with his sword.
Michael makes himself known if you’re open to experiencing him.
Archangel Raphael assists in physical healing. He’s there for you when you’re sick, and if you’re a healer or work in healthcare, then you can trust he’s always by your side.
When it comes to mental health or addiction, Raphael will guide you to clear fear and stress so you can restore your inner peace. He will always lead you toward harmony.
Archangel Raphael is often associated with a healing emerald green light. You can envision this light surrounding whatever health concern you need his help with.
Archangel Gabriel is a messenger for God, the angel for communications. I often call on him when I write and speak. He helps artists, writers and teachers share their messages with clarity and meaning.
You don’t have to be a professional communicator to call on Gabriel. If you’re having trouble speaking up or putting something into words, Gabriel will help you find the right way to say it.
He’s also a powerful guide in relation to children. Archangel Gabriel is the angel to call on if you’re having trouble with conception, pregnancy or birth. He’s often depicted holding lilies.
If you love animals and care about protecting our environment, connect to Archangel Ariel! She’s the angel of nature, and she protects the planet’s resources, the ecosystem and all animals.
You can call on Ariel when you want to connect more deeply with nature. You can invite her to accompany you on a hike, a swim or a bike ride. If you’re an animal advocate or environmental advocate, call on Archangel Ariel to support your work. You can also ask Ariel for help when you have a sick pet or just want some extra support during a vet visit.
Ariel’s presence will help you heal the environment and feel deeply connected to our planet.
Jophiel means “beauty of God.” She’s the archangel of creativity, wisdom and fresh ideas. Jophiel clears chaos and brings calm into our lives. You can call on her to manifest beauty into your life and guide your thoughts back to love. She will always help you gain a new perspective!
Archangel Azrael helps people when they’re dying and assists newly crossed-over souls adjust to the spiritual realm. Azrael is also there for you if you’re grieving a loss. You can ask him for comfort and strength in your grief.
If you help people who are healing from grief, you can call on Azrael to work with you and to protect your energy so that you don’t absorb others’ emotions.
It’s important to note that Azrael doesn’t just help with the final transition. If you’re going through any kind of change in life, you can call on Azrael for guidance.
Archangel Chamuel’s mission is to help bring peace to the world. You can call on him when you’re suffering from anxiety, struggling in a relationship or having a hard time forgiving someone.
Chamuel helps us deal with difficult times and gives us courage when we feel defeated and alone. He is the archangel to call on if you’re working through problems in a marriage, healing after a breakup or want to bring peace to any type of relationship.
Chamuel’s presence is very important on a societal scale, too. If you want to heal division and separation within communities, find common ground, and restore oneness, call on Archangel Chamuel.
Your Guardian Angel
We all have a guardian angel devoted to our spiritual growth. Their mission is to serve, guide and protect you while helping you along your spiritual path.
Your guardian angel is devoted to your spiritual growth and is your great protector.
Whereas archangels work with everyone, your guardian angel works exclusively with you. They have unconditional love for you and are always by your side. While they’re always available to you, they won’t intervene in your life without your free will (or unless there’s a life-threatening situation that occurs before it’s your time to leave your body). Your guardian angel is always on call.
Anytime you’re struggling, you can call on your guardian angel for help. Your guardian angel is your protector, and they can absorb your emotions to help you through difficult times.
In the low moments of life, when we feel immense grief or despair, we can get the sense that there’s a presence with us — even if that sense is very subtle. That feeling is the presence of our guardian angel.
But your guardian angel isn’t just for life’s hardest times. You can call on them anytime you want support and protection.
