So, what are Angels?
The word angel is thought to be derived from the Greek word “Angelos” which means “messenger”. In Christian, Muslim, Jewish and other theologies an angel can be one who acts as a messenger, attendant or agent of God. Throughout the bible it is generally seen that the will of God is usually imparted or carried out by angels.
Angels are spirits without bodies, who possess superior intelligence, gigantic strength, and surpassing holiness. They are composed of ethereal matter, thus allowing them to take on whichever physical form best suits their immediate needs. Angels are also seen as the essence of love and joy and stem from the Heart of God/Goddess.
Angels can vary in form, depending on the needs and expectations of those requesting help. They may appear as either male or female, but are neither. They are beings of light energy. They came into being as a link between the Creator and humanity. They bring us messages to guide and protect us during the spiritual transformation that is taking place now on the planet.
What is a Guardian Angel?
Everyone is allocated a Guardian Angel to look after them throughout all their incarnations. They are our loving companions, constantly watching over us. Our Guardian Angels hold the picture of our divine perfection and constantly whisper it to us, impressing us with the highest choices we can make. Guardian Angels can open the doors of new opportunities for us, and arrange the amazing and magical synchronicities which are so helpful in our lives.
What are Archangels?
Archangels are probably the best known of all Angels. They carry God’s most important messages to humans. They also command God’s ‘armies’ of Angels in the constant battle with the “sons of darkness.”
Here are the seven Archangels:
Archangel Michael – He is the angel of protection and the leader of blue-flamed angels (angels with a blue-colored ray). He can be called upon during times of trouble.
Archangel Jophiel – He is the archangel of illumination and has the yellow ray. His qualities include wisdom, understanding, inspiration, knowledge, and clear-seeing. Jophiel can also aid in helping people with addictions.
Archangel Chamuel – He is the archangel of love and has the pink ray. His qualities include love, compassion, mercy, creativity, and forgiveness. Chamuel can also help people with self-esteem issues.
Archangel Gabriel – He is the archangel of guidance and has the white ray. His qualities include guidance, joy, and purity. Gabriel can assist with a lack of money or resources.
Archangel Raphael – He is the archangel of healing and carries the green ray. His qualities include truth, wholeness, and vision. Raphael is considered a very practical angel and can assist with the fields of science and mathematics. He can also help wounded soldiers and help doctors or those who practice alternative medicine with their practice.
Archangel Uriel – He is the archangel of peace and carries a purple and gold ray. He has the qualities of inner peace, tranquility, and hope. Uriel can help end wars and solve court problems.
