Archangels: Who to Call

Archangels: Who to Call

Archangels : The List is Enormous!  Do they all Originate from the Bible? 

AngelwithChildThe realm of the Archangels has been one of  light, love, power and service to humanity.  Whilst in many spiritual circles, there has been a shift in consciousness from a single religion, to embrace "The Universe", the Archangels remain a focus of help when we need it. 

There are angels and Archangels : the former being the messengers of God : the latter being the leaders of those messengers:

 "Head Angels", although there are no explicit references to this hierarchy within the Hebrew ( Old Testament) Bible.  Michael is the only angel named.  It is in the Kabbalah and Book of Enoch that Michael, Raphael and Gabriel are referenced and the remaining 4 ( to create the sacred 7 Archangels)  were recorded by Pope Gregory 1st (590 - 604).  It is also interesting to note that Metatron, one of the highest Archangels in Kabbalist and Merkabah mysticism is not listed as one of the traditional seven. 

It does not matter where you look, the list of the 7 Archangels changes depending on the source and the religious culture. So what is right? ...............and does it matter? Here are some of the traditional upon them when in need and remember " A rose by any other name would smell as sweet!" : it is not the name but the energy that is blessed.


Michael :

A Divine Protector: the warrior who vanquished Lucifer and banished him to the realms for hell for his rebellion against God.  Call on Michael when courage is needed, when fear is present that needs to be conquered.  As the warrior he carries the sword of justice and is willing to use it to smite down his enemy. Sometimes force is required in our world to defend loved ones and ourselves: Michael can help us now the right way!

As Gabriel brought news of the birth of John the Baptist and Jesus, women who are looking for a child coming into their lives may call on this Archangel.
