If you're anything like me, you might be skeptical of all things unseen. I don't have the gift of sight just yet, unlike some of my very talent and gifted coworkers, so supernatural / other dimensional beings used to be a tough sell for my ego to believe in. Healthy skepticism is important but not everything is the way it seems and reality after awakening is gloriously so different than expected!
I wanted to share the little that I do know and have experienced from the powerful, unconditionally loving and benevolent Archangels. I can honestly say I have felt them, even if only briefly and very gently, and know that when I meditate and invoke their help, I am sent the exactly what I need. They surround us and wait for us to call on them for help, protection, love, calm, guidance, clarity, you name it! I'm so grateful for every one of the Archangel's I've had the privilege of working with. I felt it was important to share a few of the basics about a small selection of the Archangels so that maybe we, at Awakening, can help inspire someone to invoke them and receive a little TLC from these magnificent beings as well. Enjoy!
1. Archangel Michael: Perhaps the most well known of the Archangels, Michael protects all that is pure. He provides physical, emotional, and psychic protection with his sword of light during challenging times in this plane. His name means "he who is like God". The color Archangel Michael emits is a royal blue. His main purpose is to destroy fear and the ego. If asked, Michael will shield you from lower, fear based energies.
2. Archangel Raphael: Raphael means "God heals". It's no surprise that this Archangel is the archangel of healers and for healing those in need. Raphael can heal ailments immediately when asked, refer a health care provider, help with pain management, heal pets, guide healers along their journey, and/or give comfort and hope.
3. Archangel Gabriel: Archangel Gabriel is the communicator. Call on him for help with expression yourself more clearly, getting a point across and also if your work involves children. For clear guidance on an issue, ask Archangel Gabriel. Gabriel's color is copper.
4. Archangel Ariel: Ariel is the environmental, earthly Archangel. This Archangel will help you connect to nature, find your purpose connected to the environment, and assists in manifesting what is needed from the earth. She plays an important role in saving our planet. She is also known as the angel of wisdom. Her color is red.
5. Archangel Metatron: Believed to have been a prophet who ascended to the archangel realm, Metatron's name means "of God". Metatron is associated with the Merkabah - it is also called Metatron's cube. He uses the Merkabah cube for healing and clearing energy. His aura color is deep pink and green. He is the archangel, protector, of highly sensitive people and empaths. Clearing energy is one of his greatest gifts. He is a wise teacher of how to apply esoteric teachings to everyday life.
