Helpful Angel Info
I work a lot with angels so I felt it important to share at least a little bit about them on the about page because they are absolutely a part of my team!
Excerpt below from Laura's book Life and the After-Life: Notes from a Medium and Angel Communicator. Available now at Amazon (print and kindle editions), and at the Tattered Cover Booksellers in print. More in depth information is available in Laura's book Angels: How to Understand, Recognize, and Receive Their Guidance and in her fourth book Angels and Manifesting, also has information on how to create the life of your dreams with the angels. Laura's most recent book, Diary of a Psychic, tells stories about working with the angels. Laura is also working on her book Archangels and Ascended Masters which will be out in early fall of 2016.
Angels are a type of energy being that is not human or animal. One of their missions is to help us with our mission and our life in general. They do this in many ways but I will discuss details on this a bit later. Unlike people, as soon as you ask the angels for help, they will help you! They will also never judge you and are always supportive, even if you are acting less than saintly.
Archangels are a very powerful type of angel, likened to the commanders of armies of angels. They are mentioned specifically in the Christian Bible, in the Koran, and the Jewish Bible or Old Testament. Aside from guardian angels, they are probably the most well-known type of angels. So if you are working with or asking for help from an archangel, know that you are also working with a lot of other angels as well. Archangels are similar to specialty angels in that they also have areas that they work in or have expertise in but they often have more than one area that they can help us with. For example, Archangel Chamuel specializes in clearing dark energy, finding romance, life purpose and also finding lost items. He is a very handy angel to know! There are lots and lots of archangels (I can’t tell you exactly how many) so I will just list some of the ones that I work with and know about. Here is a little bit of information on each Archangel:
Michael: Archangel or Saint Michael is a powerful protector and warrior. He is said to have led the battle against the army of fallen angels and he is often depicted in artwork slaying the devil. His name means “Power of God” and he is powerful! He can help you if you feel fearful and he can protect you against real or imagined fears. He also is great for clearing dark energies and energetic cords which are energetic connections between people that transmit energies and emotions. Archangel Michael can also help you with your life mission. He is there to help many of us who have a life-purpose that involves working in the light-energy and shifting paradigms to the new way of life and business.
Gabriel is mentioned in the Christian Bible as the angel who came to Mary and announced that she would give birth to Jesus. Gabriel acts as a main messenger between us and heaven and helps us with anything to do with communication whether it is talking, singing, writing, or even body language! Call on Gabriel whenever you need help with any type of communication or with having confidence in your communication.
Raphael is an angel who helps with a whole host of issues. While he is not in the Catholic canon (approved religious text), he is mentioned in the “Book of Tobit” which is a non-canonical religious text. In this story, Raphael plays a great role in many different ways. In the “Book of Tobit”, he helped heal a blind man, restored a family’s fortune, played matchmaker, released demons from a young woman, and helped a traveler travel safely. This is an angel who has a great sense of humor! Call on Raphael for assistance in romance, traveling, healing, and chance meetings. His name means “Healer of God”, but he doesn’t heal just the physical.
Uriel is the archangel that is often described as the counselor angel. Uriel means “Light of God” which makes sense when you think of clearing dark emotions and going into the light. He helps us deal with emotions and clear out toxic emotions and relationships. He also helps with extreme weather and natural disasters. Call on Uriel for help with relationships, weather related problems (especially wind) and clearing emotions and beliefs that are no longer serving you.
Chamuel is a multi-talented archangel who can help with romance, clearing dark and negative energy, life-purpose, and also finding lost items. He is a very powerful archangel and I call on him often. His name means “He who seeks God”. Call on Archangel Chamuel for assistance with finding anything that you want in your life, including love, and clearing anything you don’t want in your life such as ghost and entity attachments. He is incredible with finding lost items such as wedding rings!
Jophiel is a beautiful archangel whose name means “Beauty of God” and she does have beautiful energy! She has a more feminine energy than many of the other archangels and can help beautify or uplift anything in your life including your thoughts, emotions, your physical space, etc. She works a lot with people who do some kind of design work such as stylists, designers, decorators and artists. Call on her if you need beauty in any area of your life (even a new hairstyle!) and you may be amazed at the results.
Ariel is a wonderful angel to work with for tapping into nature cycles and for working with animals. Ariel means “Lion of God” and she is a strong force! Think of our associations with lion and you will have a sense of her – strong, dignified, and unfazed. Ariel can help us when working with the nature spirits, plants, animals, and the environment. Call on her for help in any of these areas and when you need to feel more strength and dignity, regardless of external circumstances.
Haniel can help us tap into moon energy and feminine energy and intuitive knowing. Haniel means “Glory of God” and is a powerful but gentle angel who can help with clairvoyance, divine timing and connecting with feminine energy. Haniel is associated with the planet Venus and can also help with love, companionship and connection.
Zadkiel can help us with letting go and forgiving. His name means “Righteousness of God” and he is a fantastic angel for helping release judgment and blame and to replace these feelings with mercy and empathy. He can help heal relationships and also help us forgive people (even ourselves).
Sandalphon is the brother of Metatron and one of the only two archangels believed to have had a human life. He is said to help transport our prayers to God. He works through music and is believed to be the guardian of the earth. He also helps fight against dark forces and reestablish harmony. He is said to determine the gender of a child in the embryo stage so you can call on him to determine the gender of your baby.
Metatron is Sandalphon’s brother and also had a human life prior to becoming an angel. He is described as God’s mediator with men. He is believed to keep the records of men or the Akashic Records. He works a lot with children. He can also assist people in crossing over into the after-life.
Raziel is an angel who can help you with esoteric knowledge and can assist with magic and manifesting and research. If you are struggling to learn about something complex, ask for his assistance. He is said to have written the Seger Raziel HaMalach (Book of Raziel the Angel) which contains God's wisdom. He reportedly gave this book to Adam and Eve after they ate the apple from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Call on Raziel to increase your magic and manifesting efforts and to help with learning and comprehension.
The archangels are excellent allies and I encourage you to call on those whose names and descriptions resonate for you.
Angels Are Here to Help
You are not bothering the angels when you ask for their help! They are here to help us shift and change but they need to be invited to help in order to do so. They are always there emotionally supporting us and giving messages but its not until we ask for their help that they are allowed to step in and intervene in your life. In addition to asking the Archangels for help, you can also ask the specialty angels for help. Specialty angels work in different areas to help the world. So whatever you need help with, ask the angel in charge of that to help. You can ask parking angels, marketing angels, abundance angels, housekeeping angels, relationship angels, teacher angels, etc. The more you receive the more you can help others so ask for as much help as you want and watch your life and the world transform.
