Understanding the Different Archangels & their Healing Powers

“A friend of mine had a life changing experience. When he saw an angel, he told me it terrified him at first, “It was huge, ten feet tall, and looked just like a person, except for its glistening wings.” ~ Spirit guides & Angel Guardians, Richard Webster

The shift towards higher consciousness gives us the opportunity to connect with higher realms or the universal divine energy. This energy can be felt or received through angels or spirit guides.

Several cultures, literature and religions have mentioned the presence of these pure beings of light who offer guidance, protection, healing, and comfort. Angels are endowed with the task to aid & protect humans in their needs and deliver divine messages through whisper, dreams, inner voice and intuition.


We might interpret this energy in different ways and is largely dependent on what you believe and what resonates with you.

Archangels & Angel meditation

The archangels have the power to be omnipresent. In order to receive their help, we have to reach out to them and request them for their aid. You must be centered, clear of any judgement and truly believe and accept their presence. They appear when they are called upon lovingly and patiently.

My experience with angel meditation has been very soothing, full of warmth, and calming. After a while of practice, I could hear them whisper in my ears. The kind of ease you will feel in your life, once you do this meditation can only be experienced.

Locate a place of silence and add light music, candles, crystals if you like. Lie down and focus your attention on breathing for a couple of minutes.

Once your breathing is steady, try to relax your body completely and focus on the angel(s) in mind and call upon them. Here are some of the archangels and their specialities.

Archangel Michael

The most revered of archangels in many scriptures and spiritual traditions, Michael has traditionally been called to free a person from evil spirits. He appears in art with a sword in hand, battling Satan himself. Michael translates to “who is like god.”

Michael is the epitome of strength and valor. He guides us away from fear and you can call on him for protection and courage to make the changes necessary to grow on our path. He also helps us in recognizing our true purpose in life.

Call upon him whenever you want to dispel negative energy and cleanse your aura. Also, if you feel fearful in any situation or lack motivation in any task, you can ask for his guidance.

Archangel Raphael

Raphael means “God heals the soul” or “It is God who heals.” He works in coordination with archangel Michael and helps in clearing out spaces and people of all the negative entities and lower level energies. Raphael can help you reduce or eliminate pain stemming from short-term and chronic conditions. Angels do feed your egos, but will guide in your daily problems.

Raphael can be called upon to assist in making your travel plans go smoothly and protect you on your journey. Doctors, healers, surgeons or people aspiring to be one can also call upon this healer angel to help them accomplish their goals.

Archangel Gabrielarchangel-gabriel

Regarded as a female angel, Gabriel stands next to Michael in ranking and translates to “Strength from god.” Gabriel is closely aligned with the Divine feminine situations of pregnancy, birth, and communication. He guides us in opening our third eye and enables us to listen to divine messages clearly and decipher their meaning.

He gives strength and guidance to those planning to have a child. Women suffering from sexual trauma or other issues of psychic attacks can call upon him for help. He also guides in all areas of communication and in creative and artistic expression.

Archangel Uriel

Uriel will come to your rescue when you are feeling stuck in a situation, lack creativity or new ideas. He can show us how to heal every aspect of our lives by turning disappointments into victories and finding blessings in adversity.

According to Virtue, “He illuminates our minds with information, ideas, epiphanies, and insights. He’s wonderful to call upon whenever you need a solution, such as at business meetings, when writing, while studying, or when taking a test. He’ll whisper correct and appropriate answers into your ear, which you’ll receive as words or thoughts that are suddenly “downloaded” into your mind.”

Color – Yellow
Crystal or Gemstone – Amber

Archangel Chamuel

Chamuel translates to “he who sees god.” Known as the angel of love, Chamuel is kind-hearted and compassionate and helps with relationship issues. Virtue mentioned, “… Chamuel has omniscient vision, and he sees the connection between everyone and everything.” He helps to expand your heart chakra and develop the flame of love within you.

You can call upon him to find inner peace, resolve conflicts with others, mend existing relationships, forgive those who have hurt you and nurture romantic love.

Archangel Jophiel

Archangel-JophielJophiel translates to “beauty of god.” As an angel representing beauty, Jophiel has a lot to do with feminine and creative energy. She is the watchdog for artists & creative people. She makes us see beauty in everything – around us and within – think beautiful thoughts that can help us develop beautiful souls. This slows you down to experience the pleasures of life with ease & joy.

Call upon this angel when you want to add beauty, joy & laughter to your life. Virtue said, “Archangel Jophiel can help you quickly shift from a negative to a positive mindset.. wonderful to call upon to heal misunderstandings with other people. Jophiel casts a wide net with her ability to bring beauty to your life…” She helps in making our life more energetically balanced, nurture and focused on the positive aspects of life.

Archangel Raguel

Raguel translates to “friend of god” and the “angel of justice.” He is the archangel to turn to for resolving misunderstandings and bringing harmony in relationships, as he is considered to be the archangel of orderliness, fairness, harmony, and justice. You can connect with him during a fight or argument with someone and he will help you change your perspective about it. He can also help you attract wonderful friends who treat you with respect and integrity.

Color – Dark Pale Blue
Crystal or Gemstone – Aquamarine

You may or may not see the exact colour, but angels can be seen as sparks of beautiful color, flashes of light, or beautiful bubbles or clouds of light. When we invite the energies of these angels in our life, we can feel a sudden shift in our energies, moving to a higher vibration.

Simply call upon them at any time of the day for their involvement in your life situations.
