Angels are special beings created with the love of God, each with their own place and role to play in the heavenly kingdom. I cannot say that I am an expert in Angels as I feel it would be foolish to do so. They are such high beings that are shrouded in mystery, hearsay, a variety of beliefs and opinions. What I will share with you is my faith and knowledge that I have gained through working with them.
An Angels role is to guide you, protect you from harm and to give you strength, confidence and love when you need it. All this without changing your free will or altering your path for you. At the end of the day this is our life to lead and our lessons to learn. We would only end up going round in a circle if someone else ran our life for us!
There is a Hierarchy of Angels which further determines the roles they play in our world and the angelic realm. Each level takes them closer to God, The One or The All, and moves them away from our practical issues and towards spiritual ones. Basically from helping us find time and a parking space to spiritual awareness outside of conventional thinking! The following shows this Hierarchy of Angels...
There are nine choirs of angels divided into three groups of ranks and spheres.
1st Rank, Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones.
These Angels are entirely turned towards God.
2nd Rank, Dominions, Powers and Authorities.
These Angels know God through there concern for the cosmos.
3rd Rank, Principalities, Archangels and Angels.
These Angels oversee nations, are involved with human beings and know God through his creation.
Archangels: My personal top three who help me the most are Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. These Archangels help me nearly everyday in some way and they are said to be the most called upon worldwide. The next in line are Chamuel, Jophiel, Zadkiel and Uriel. These four are extremely important and can be overlooked sometimes. Below is a little summary of the Top Three Archangels...
Archangel Michael is the protector of mankind, often depicted with his sword and shield ready to fight any battle at any time. Michael can be called upon for strength when you feel you are fighting a personal battle or when you are lacking in energy and need to stop others from pinching what little you have left!
He used to be portrayed with weighing scales too and this was to represent his balance for justice! A magical and super strong energy, and associated with blues and deep purples.
Imagine his shield in front of you to protect your energy or keep negative energy at bay. You can also ask him to use his sword to cut away ties to the past, negative attachments or anything that you need to let go of. There are several ways to do this such as visualising a net sweeping over you home to clear away negative energy, seeing your old ties in your minds eye and cutting them, placing the shield over you car or a person for protection.
Archangel Gabriel is to me a fabulous communicator and guide when planning, organising or creating. Gabriel can make things feel simpler and easier to understand whilst also pushing you along to seek new and exciting opportunities! Gabriel's energy can be soft and subtle, almost a whisper in the wind! Simply listen and you will hear words of wisdom. Call upon this Archangel when you need assistance with work/career, relationship clarity/misunderstandings or technology issues. If you are a creative person such as artist or writer then Gabriel can also help you too as this is a specialist area of work for this creative Archangel. Use Orange to connect as a vibrant energiser!
Archangel Raphael is the most famous healing Angel and without a doubt will be there for you be it a physical ailment, emotional healing, stress, or a spiritual meeting of minds that you need. Raphael often works with Michael and Gabriel to create the harmony required for perfect healing to take place. Raphael's energy can sometimes feel like a push or a sudden energy rush! He won't hold back if you need moving forward onto a new path, yet he can be quite calming if you need to find stillness within. Call upon Raphael for yourself or to assist others with healing in all areas of their life including addiction, end of life care, grief, abuse and so much. He will be there for you no matter what!
Call on Raphael for all healing needs and use green as a way of connecting, meditating or visualising him around you. Either wear it, use the colour in your home or work, see it as a blanket around a person.
Quick Angel Facts... Archangel means Chief Angel. The word Angel comes from the Greek word, angelos, which means "messenger." Angeology is the theological study of Angels. The 'Heavenly Host' is a phrase which describes all of the Angels as a whole. Angels can help us but cannot intervene when the purpose of an experience is to learn a life lesson – to do so would be doing us a great disservice. According to the Bible, the Archangel Gabriel has 140 pairs of wings. The word Angel has expanded to include other spiritual beings such as loved ones or animals in heaven.
To connect with Angels you simply have to ask!
Your faith in them will bring them closer and you may find their calling card of a little feather. Other signs are songs, dreams, thoughts, words that you read...simply something that catches your eye and answers what you have asked. They work in mysterious and wonderful ways!

Angelite (above) is beautiful shades of blue and is generally a rounded, polished stone with a slight sheen. It is a very calming, balancing crystal and creates a beautiful connection to the Angels and Archangels.
Sometimes this process can happen in reverse! When you meditate or dream and feel an angelic energy...consider the colour/s you are seeing or sensing. Then work out the Archangel associated and why they may be stepping in to work with you. They can be a little subtle and in the background sometimes which means we can miss the signs they give us!
Common Archangel Colours are:
- White/Black - Metatron - Organisation, planning, structure, breaking patterns, creating new paths and silence of the mind.
- Gold/Orange/White - Gabriel - Communication, dreams, finding words and time to get clarity and focus.
- Blue - Michael - Protection, strength and courage, accepting the past and believing in the future, working your way through battles.
- Green - Raphael - healing on all levels, understanding your soul purpose, connecting with the divine and becoming a healer.
- Pink - Chamuel - love, emotional balance, inner peace, calm, self love, wishes, affirmations and desires for yourself and others.
- Purple/Violet - Zadkiel - forgiveness, compassion, higher wisdom, psychic development and intuition, acting upon your souls advice.
- Yellow - Jophiel - energy, drive, passion, uplifting positive vibrations, abundance and co-operation, ideas and opportunities.
- Red - Nathaniel - fire, drive, attitude, realisation and clarity, law of attraction, manifestation and transformation of your life.
There can be a mix of colours or a feeling which guides you to know which Archangel you are working with. The best person to know is yourself and your intuition. You may be feeling blue for protection but know that Metatron is actually assisting!
I often meditate and seek connection with the Spirit World to gain knowledge and insight into that which we cannot see. I have written below two of my experiences when connecting with 'my team'. When read back, there are some inspiring thoughts and wonderful messages.
"Allow us to work with you for higher purposes and we will bring you peace and much happiness. Spiritualists believe in us and our forms are many. Children believe in us too but they cannot appreciate the magnitude of our energy. We show you the way forward to heal and be loved, we cannot turn away from you.
This is our mission, Gods will for life on earth. People looking for Spiritual help and lost loved ones often call on Spirit Guides and Mediums to facilitate, they often do not acknowledge our strength to help these occurrences happen. We perform 'miracles' and watch guard over the world in secret and unknowing to many."
