Archangels names and their meaning

image1

All Archangels end with the “el” suffix.  “El” meaning “in God” and the first half of the name meaning what each individual Angel specializes in.  Archangels are able to be in many places at one time.  You never have to feel that your “problem” isn’t important enough to bother them with.  That is what they’re there for, to help you grow. The most popular Archangels are Michael, Raphael, Gabriel and Uriel who are depicted in the Christian Bible.  There is a debate as to the name of the other Archangels.  In the eighth century, the Christian Church became alarmed at the rampant adoration of Angels by the Christian community.  For some unknown reason, in 745 A.D. under Pope Zachary, a Roman council ordered seven Angels removed from the ranks of the Churchs recognized Angels, two of them being Archangels Uriel and Raguel.  This website recognizes there are many Archangels, and there’s much debate to who they are and how many there actually are, but we’ve listed the seven Judeo-Christian Archangels as:

Michael     Raphael     Gabriel     Uriel     Chamuel     Jophiel     Raguel

In truth, an archangel is any angel who has risen above the generic rank of an angel. Among the archangels, seven “Archangels of the Throne” (although this term is not used in canonical texts) hold the highest ranks in the order—Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Orifiel, Zarachiel, Uriel, and Simiel. These privileged angels may also stand or kneel before the Throne of YHVH, the divine presence. Let’s look at the stories of each of these archangels.

The position of the Archangels in the Angelic Choir permits them to remain close to us human beings so they can carry God’s message to us. They are considered the captains of all the Angelic hosts and are at the service of mankind and the planet earth. They are healers that can mend our etheric, metal, emotional and physical bodies. They minister to us through the SEVEN RAYS OF ENLIGHTENMENT.


Michael
also known: Beshter, Mika’il, Sabbathiel

Meaning – “Who is like God”, “Like unto God”, “Who is like the Divine”

The first Angel created by God, Michael is the leader of all the Archangels and is in charge of protection, courage, strength, truth and integrity.  Michael protects us physically, emotionally and psychically.  He also oversees the light worker’s life purpose.  His chief function is to rid the earth and its inhabitants of the toxins associated with fear.  Michael carries a flaming sword that he uses to cut through etheric cords and protects us from Satan and negative entities.  When he’s around you may see sparkles or flashes of bright blue or purple light.  Call on Michael if you find yourself under psychic attack or if you feel you lack commitment, motivation and dedication to your beliefs, courage, direction, energy, vitality, self-esteem, worthiness.  Michael helps us to realize our life’s purpose and he’s invaluable to light workers helping with protection, space clearing and spirit replacement.

Michael conquered the fallen Angel Satan, was in the Garden of Eden to teach Adam how to farm and care for his family, spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai and in 1950 he was canonized as Saint Michael, “the patron of Police Officers,” because he helps with heroic deeds and bravery.  Michael also has an incredible knack for fixing electrical and mechanical devices, including computers and automobiles.  If your automobile breaks down, call on Michael.

Michael helps us to follow our truth without compromising our integrity and helps us to find our true natures and to be faithful to who we really are.  Other times when you may find Michael helpful is when your job is too demanding with impossible deadlines to reach, when you have an addiction, if you’re very ill and suffering from a degenerative disease or terminal illness and when you suffer from nightmares

Michael: The Angel Prince of Israel

The name of the Archangel Michael means “the one who is as God/YHVH.” In almost all angelic lore, regardless of text or denomination, Michael is the most powerful of all the angels. In human terms, Michael is often considered the “General of the Angels.” This stems from the fact that, during the war in Heaven, Michael stepped forth and led the loyal angelic ranks into a fierce battle against the would-be usurper Lucifer and his rebel angels.

The Archangel Michael is a natural leader, and assumes this role across various planes of existence. His authority is not solely restricted to the angelic ranks, but extends into the realms of both Heaven and Earth. Michael is the Chief of the Order of Virtues and the Prince of the “Presence.” He is also the patron angel of righteousness, mercy, justice, repentance, and sanctification. He is the natural enemy of all that is evil and unjust. However, Michael’s most prestigious titles were bestowed upon him as a result of his loyalty and devoted service in the war in Heaven, for which YHVH appointed Michael as the holy ruler of the fourth level of Heaven and declared him the Angelic Prince of Israel. In addition, Michael serves as one of the Ten Angels of the Holy Sefiroth.

Although Michael is the holder of many angelic titles, his most well-known title is that of “The Conqueror of Satan” because his role is to do battle with the great adversary of YHVH, Lucifer. The word Satan actually means “adversary,” a title given to Lucifer (and many other fallen angels) after the war and his fall from Heaven. In art, Michael is most commonly portrayed in his role as The Conqueror of Satan.

If ever there were a patron warrior angel, it would certainly be the Archangel Michael. His role as an archangel has long been one of battle, and he is almost always depicted holding a sword or spear. While Michael is benevolent in nature, his role as a warrior often requires him to be wrathful as well. Judaic lore credits him with the destruction of the ancient city of Babylon, although he acted under the divine orders of YHVH.

Archangel Michael – First ray is the Blue Ray Archangel Michael serves on the blue ray of spiritual light. This is the ray of Faith, Protection and God’s Will. Call upon him if you are ever in need of personal assistance or distress. A call of help to Archangel Michael from the bottom of your heart will bring him immediately to your assistance. His day of the week is Tuesday and this is considered the best time to start any spiritual work for Michael. We recommend using red and blue candles to invoke his presence.

Archangel Michael – Michael means one who is like God. Michael is in charge of the order of angels called *Virtues* and oversees a light workers purpose. His chief function is the rid the world of toxins related to fear. Michael has inspired leaders and light workers since his time in the Garden of Eden where he taught Adam how to farm and care for his family.

When Michael speaks to me I get a definite since of his ability to relate on our level. He certainly doesn’t talk over our heads and understands the language for our time quite well! His voice although somewhat deep, is soft and comfortable. He will speak with you like a good friend.

Gabriel: The Divine Trumpeter of Heaven

The name Gabriel means “My strength is from God/YHVH” (although it is sometimes interpreted as “Hero of God/YHVH”). In the angelic lore of both the Muslim and Judeo-Christian traditions, the Archangel Gabriel is second in rank only to the mighty Archangel Michael. In the biblical Old Testament, he is one of only two angels referred to specifically by name (the other being Michael).

Gabriel’s angelic role is often thought of as YHVH’s announcer, or as Heaven’s messenger or trumpeter, which has led some to consider Gabriel as a Judeo-Christian equivalent to the Greco-Roman messenger god Hermes/Mercury. But while acting as a divine messenger/announcer is among his responsibilities, the entirety of his collective roles is far more complex. He is certainly more than just an angel who blows a trumpet, which is a common misperception.

The Archangel Gabriel’s nature is as fascinating as it is unique. When compared to his fellow archangels, Gabriel displays an amazingly balanced set of roles. These balanced, and sometimes paradoxical, attributes give him a very unique and somewhat dualistic nature. Gabriel assumes many roles that could be, at first glance, perceived as contradictory (or, at best, very uncomplimentary). For example, Gabriel is the patron angel of both mercy and vengeance. He is also the patron angel of death and resurrection and of annunciation (telling) and revelation (revealing). In all these cases, Gabriel seems to be performing tasks contrary to one another. However, this can also be seen as a metaphor for the divine balance that allows contrary forces to exist harmoniously (light and dark, life and death, etc.).

In Islamic angelic lore, Gabriel is the patron angel of Truth. According to the Qur’an, the dust thrown up by Gabriel’s holy steed found its way into the mouth of the golden calf the Jews erected during the absence of Moses. When this occurred, the blasphemous statue suddenly became animated as though it were alive. In the lore of Judaism, Gabriel was the one tasked with raining down fiery destruction upon the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, which were doomed for their rampant debauchery.

Gabriel also plays an important role in Christian mythology. In the New Testament (Luke 1:26–38), Gabriel is sent to Nazareth to deliver a message to the Virgin Mary that she will give birth to Jesus the messiah. This scene of the New Testament is referred to in Christianity as “The Annunciation,” and serves to solidify the general view of Gabriel as the messenger of YHVH. However, this is a rather narrow perception of the Archangel Gabriel when one considers the various other titles he holds.

Archangel Gabriel – Fourth Ray is the White ray Archangel Gabriel serves on the Ray of purity, order, hope, joy and discipline. His name means “Man of God”. Gabriel is the messenger angel. He is frequently depicted with a trumpet heralding the path to God. He helps you balance your life and clean your karma. Call upon him in times of despair for he will help you find hope. His day of the week is Friday. We recommend white candles to invoke his presence.

Gabriel also known: Abruel, Jibril, Jiburili, Serafili

Meaning – “Strength of God”; “The Divine is my strength”; “God is my strength”

The only Archangel depicted as female in art and literature, Gabriel is known as the “messenger” Angel and is one of the four Archangels named in Hebrew tradition and is considered one of the two highest-ranking Angels in Judeo-Christian and Islamic religious lore. Apart from Michael, she is the only Angel mentioned by name in the Old Testament.  She is a powerful and strong Archangel, and those who call upon her will find themselves pushed into action that leads to beneficial results.

Gabriel can bring messages to you just as she did to Elizabeth and Mary of the impending births of their sons, John the Baptist and Jesus of Nazareth. If you are considering starting a family, Gabriel helps hopeful parents with conception or through the process of adopting a child.

Contact Gabriel if your third eye is closed and your spiritual vision is therefore blocked. If you wish to receive visions of Angelic guidance regarding the direction you are going in. If you wish to receive prophecies of the changes ahead. If you need help in interpreting your dreams and vision.

Gabriel helps anyone whose life purpose involves the arts or communication. She acts as a coach, inspiring and motivating artists, journalist and communicators and helping them to overcome fear and procrastination.

Gabriel also helps us to find our true calling. Ask for Gabriel’s guidance if you have strayed from your soul’s pathway, if you wish to understand your life plan and purpose. She can also help if you can find no reason for being or if changes are ahead and you need guidance. If you are contemplating a house move, major purchase or thinking of changing careers.

Call Gabriel if your body is full of toxins and needs purifying and if your thoughts are impure or negative and need clearing and cleansing. Gabriel is also very helpful for women who have been raped or sexually assaulted and feel dirty as well as being under psychic attack or if you feel that you have absorbed someone else’s problems.

Raphael also known: Labbiel

Meaning – “Healing power of God”, “The Divine has healed”, “God heals”

Hebrew word rapha means “doctor” or “healer”.  Raphael is a powerful healer and assists with all forms of healing – humans and animals.  He helps to rapidly heal body, mind and spirit if called upon, as in the biblical story of Abraham and the pain he felt after being circumcised as an adult.  You may call upon Raphael in behalf of someone else, but he can’t interfere with that person’s free will.  If they refuse spiritual treatment, it can’t be forced.

The chummiest and funniest of all Angels, Raphael is often pictured chatting merrily with mortal beings.  He’s very sweet, loving, kind and gentle and you know that he’s around when you see sparkles or flashes of green light.

Part of Raphael’s healing work involves spirit releasement and space clearing.  He often works with Michael to exorcise discarnate entities and escort away lower energies from people and places.

As well as a healer, Raphael is known as the “Patron of Travelers” because of his help with Tobias and his travels.  Call upon Raphael when you are traveling, to assure safe travel.  In addition, he assures that all your transportation, lodging and luggage details go miraculously well.  Raphael also helps with inward spiritual journeys, assisting in searches for truth and guidance.

Raphael taught Tobias how to make balms and ointments from a fish which cured Tobias’ father blindness.  Raphael can be called upon to help healers such as doctors, therapist and surgeons.  Call on Raphael if you’re a student entering the healing field and you’re looking for the right school and/or are in need of help with studies, as well as getting the time and money for school.  He also assists with establishing healing practices when your schooling is finished.  Raphael not only helps you to heal from physical, emotional and mental pain, he also heals wounds from past lives.

Other areas Raphael helps with is finding lost pets, reducing and eliminating addictions and cravings, clairvoyance, bringing unity to your life, if you feel out of touch with your spirituality, if you’ve lost a partner and/or your soul/body doesn’t feel “whole”.

Raphael: Protector of the Eden Tree

The name of Raphael, who is commonly considered the third highest in angelic rank, means “God has healed.” The oldest known text to mention him by name is the Book of Tobit, which is not considered part of the Judeo-Christian canons and whose validity has long been a matter of religious debate.

According to the Book of Tobit, the Archangel Raphael was charged with the task of being the guide and guardian protector of Tobias, the son of Tobit, when he journeyed to the mighty ancient city of Nineveh. In this role, Raphael assumed the guise of a mortal human so as not to cause Tobias alarm and did not reveal his true form until after they reached Nineveh. Once they arrived, Raphael uncased his wings and explained to Tobias that he was one of the Seven Holy Angels who stood/knelt before the throne of YHVH.

As with his fellow archangels, Michael and Gabriel, Raphael is known by a variety of titles, names, and roles. First and foremost, he is known as the Protector of the Eden Tree for his role as the guardian of the sacred tree after the transgression of Adam and Eve (who ate its fruit after being forbidden to do so by YHVH). In addition, he is also the Guardian of the Western Horizon and the Prince of the Second Level of Heaven. The Archangel Raphael is also the patron angel of light, love, happiness, and prayer. A member of almost every possible angelic order, he is a Cherub as well as a Seraph and stands as one of the Ten Angels of the Holy Sefiroth.

As his name suggests, Raphael is widely considered an angel of healing, medicine, science, learning, and knowledge. There is a flip side to this part of Raphael’s nature, however, and one day his time for healing others will reach its end. When this time comes, Raphael’s attribute of healing will turn to one of destruction, and he will appear ominously as one of the Seven Angels of the Apocalypse.

Archangel Raphael – Fifth Ray is the Green Ray This is the spiritual light of truth, healing, and science. Archangel Raphael’s name means “God has healed.” He is the angel that heals our body, mind and spirit. You can call on Raphael in times of sickness. Call him if you need to heal your soul of suffering or traumas. His day of the week is Wednesday we recommend green candles to invoke his presence.

Archangel Raphael – Raphael is a Master of healing, not only of the physical body but of the spiritual as well. He can help you evolve spiritually and also aids in healing Mother Earth.  His name means *God heals* or *God has healed* and he walked with Tobias, Tobit’s son, which is why he was given the Patron Saint of Travelers. During his time with Tobias, he kept him safe from any harm and alson showed Tobias how to use the fish he caught for medicinal purposes, such as healing balms and oinments.

When he is called upon, he comes quickly and with gentle voice and presence, he aids in your healing.

Science, metaphysicians, channelers

Orifiel

The name Orifiel is a rather odd one, and it is often translated as either “My neck is God/YHVH” or “I am the neck of God/YHVH.” Above all, the Archangel Orifiel is the patron angel of the forests/wilderness. His domain is over the uncultivated, wild areas of the earth, which he does his best to protect against the ravages of evil men and urban development. (The ancient Jewish tribes, who were widely nomadic, greatly opposed the rise of cities and the concept of land ownership.)

Since Orifiel frequents those places that have remained untouched since God/YHVH created them, his usual haunts are said to be in deserts and oceans. This is likely because both are places to which men rarely try to make any permanent claim of ownership. Orifiel is considered the angelic enemy of greed, deception, and worldliness.

Zarachiel: Angel of Prayer

The name Zarachiel means “The command of God/YHVH.” Zarachiel is also commonly referred to (especially in the Roman Catholic tradition) as Salaphiel, which has the somewhat similar meaning of “The one who prays to God/YHVH.” No matter what name you call him, he is the patron angel of prayer.

In artistic depictions, the Archangel Zarachiel is most frequently portrayed in the act of his patron role and, interestingly enough, as male in gender (which is somewhat odd since angels are generally thought to have no specific gender or sex). The Archangel Zarachiel, usually shown assuming various states of prayer with his hands folded and his head bowed reverently, is credited with teaching humankind the proper methods by which to pray to God/YHVH.

Uriel: Angelic Light of God

The name Uriel (sometimes spelled Oriel) means “Fire of God/YHVH” or “Light of God/YHVH.” As with his fellow archangel, Raphael, the oldest mention of Uriel’s name is found in an apocryphal text, the Book of Enoch. In this text, Uriel is specifically referred to as the “leader of them all [the angels].” This suggests that, at least at some point, Uriel outranked Michael in the angelic hierarchy.

In the text, Uriel reveals to Enoch the truth of the workings of the planets and other celestial bodies. Uriel is tasked with the keeping of the mysteries of existence, deep within the depths of the earth and well beyond the known recesses of the cosmos. Of the seven “Throne Archangels,” Uriel is said to assume the closest position to it. Uriel is closely associated with the Sun (as his name would suggest) and in ancient times he was said to be the angelic guardian of the “great light” as it passed into the dark realms thought to exist between sunset and sunrise. During the daylight, Uriel exercises his greatest influence during the second hour of sunlight.

We recommend purple and orange candles to invoke his presence.

Meaning – “God is light”, “God’s light”, Fire of God”

Uriel is considered one of the wisest Archangels because of his intellectual information, practical solutions and creative insight, but he is very subtle.  You may not even realize he has answered your prayer until you’ve suddenly come up with a brilliant new idea. Uriel warned Noah of the impending flood, helped the prophet Ezra to interpret mystical predictions about the coming Messiah and delivered the Cabal to humankind.  He also brought the knowledge and practice of alchemy and the ability to manifest from thin air, as well as illuminates situations and gives prophetic information and warnings.  All this considered, Uriel’s area of expertise is divine magic, problem solving, spiritual understanding, studies, alchemy, weather, earth changes and writing.  Considered to be the Archangel who helps with earthquakes, floods, fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, natural disaster and earth changes, call on Uriel to avert such events or to heal and recover in their aftermath

In the eighth century, the Christian Church became alarmed at the rampant and excessive zeal with which many of the faithful were revering Angels.  For some unknown reason, in 745 A.D. under Pope Zachary, a Roman council ordered seven Angels removed from the ranks of the Churchs recognized Angels, one of them being Uriel.

Chamuel also known: Camael, Camiel, Camiul, Camniel, Cancel, Jahoel

Kemuel, Khamael, Seraphiel, Shemue

If there’s a breakdown of your relationship, if you cling to your relationships and don’t allow your companion the freedom to be able to express them freely, call on Chamuel for guidance and support.  The other areas you can Chamuel can help is if you need to strengthen a parent-child bond, if you’re unable to feel love for yourself or others, if your heart has hardened and is full of negative emotions, if you have lost someone close through death or separation, if you and your children have experienced a divorce, if your heart is blocked with depression, hopelessness and despair, if you feel lonely and broken hearted, if you need to be loved, if you are judgmental and cynical or if you don’t appreciate the love that you have in your life.

Chamuel can also help with world peace, career, life purpose and finding lost items.

Archangel Chamuel – Third Ray is the Pink Ray This is the ray of love. Chamuel’s name means “He Who Seeks God.” Chamuel is the winged emissary of the expressions of love. He represents compassion, communication, and love in all of its expression. Call on Chamuel to help you with your divine mission and to guide you towards your soul mate. Also ask him to facilitate personal relationships so that you enjoy peace and harmony in every area of your life. His day of the week is Monday. We recommend using pink candles to invoke his presence

 

Simiel

Unfortunately, little information survives about the archangel Simiel (especially when it comes to Christian texts). This is mainly due to the fact that in 745 C.E., a council of the Roman Catholic Church deemed that Simiel’s name should be removed from their authorized list of angels that were fit for veneration. It also appears that there were suspicions that Simiel was one of the rebel angels, and therefore among the Fallen.

Many people misunderstand the nature of the order of archangels, believing them to be only a group of warrior angels. While some certainly are warriors, the title of archangel is actually given to any of the highest-ranking angels.

 

Archangel Jophiel:

Archangel Jophiel also known: Iofiel, Iophiel, Jofiel, Zophiel

Meaning – “Beauty of God”

Jophiel was the Angel present in the Garden of Eden and later watched over Noahs sons.  The Archangel of art and beauty, he is the patron of artists, helping with artistic projects, thinking beautiful thoughts, to see and appreciate beauty around us.  Helping to create beauty at home and at work, Jophiel is the Archangel for interior decorators.   He illuminates our creative spark by giving us ideas and energy to carry out artistic ventures.  He also helps us to see the beauty in all things, including people.

As well as helping our creativity, Jophiel helps us to slow down and smell the roses.  Call on him if you need joy and laughter in your life or if you feel you’ve lost the light in your life.  He will also help if your soul is sleeping and needs awakening and if you wish to awaken a deeper understanding of who you are and seeking a connection with the higher self, so that you may take your first steps along your spiritual pathway.

Judeo-Christian Archangels

Raguel also known: Akrasiel, Raguil, Rasuil, Rufael,Suryan

Meaning – “Friend of God”

Referred to as the Archangel of Justice and Fairness, Raguel oversees all the other Archangels and Angels.  He watches over them to make sure theyre working well together in a harmonious and orderly fashion according to Divine order and will. Raguel is the Archangel for the underdog.  Call on him for help when you need to be empowered and respected.  He helps to resolve arguments, helps with cooperation and leads to harmony in groups and families.  Raguel defends the unfairly treated, and provides support with mediation of disputes. In the Revelation of John, Raguel is referred to as an assistant to God in the following account: “Then shall He send the Angel Raguel, saying: Go and sound the trumpet for the Angels of cold and snow and ice, and bring together every kind of wrath upon them that stand on the left.”

Despite his exalted position, for some unexplained reason Raguel was reprobated in 745 A.D. by the Roman church (along with some other high-level Angels, including Uriel).  At this time Pope Zachary described Raguel as a demon who “passed himself off as a saint”.

Jeremiel is that Archangel who review’s our lives with us after we’ve crossed over.  He is also able to do this for us while we’re still living; helping us to review our life up till now so we can correct the wrongs we’ve done by making positive adjustments.  Through this, he’s able to help us make life changes, making us stronger and lead us to the right path.

Jeremiel also helps us with clairvoyance and prophetic visions, and helps us to interpret psychic dreams.


Metatron

Judaic, Cabalistic    One of the only two Archangels whose Image result for archangel metatron fantasyname does not end in “el” and one of the only two Archangels who were humans before becoming Angels (his brother Elijah/Sandalphon being the other).  His human name was Enoch.  The meaning of Metatron is unclear, but some believe it means “he who occupies the throne next to the Divine throne”, “the Angel of the Presence” or that his name is a derivation of the name Yahweh, the Jewish term for the unspoken sacred name of God.

One of the most important Angels in the Western tradition, he represents the supreme Angel of death, to whom God daily gives orders as to which souls will be taken that day. Metatron transmits these orders to his subordinates Gabriel and Sammael.

On earth Enoch was a prophet and scribe.  He was also a scholar on heavenly secrets, having received “The Book of the Angel Raziel”, a textbook about God’s workings penned by Archangel Raziel and given to Adam, Noah, Enoch and Solomon. As a result, God escorted Enoch directly to the seventh Heaven – the highest level – to reside and work. Enoch was given wings and transformed into a great Archangel named Metatron.

Since Metatron excelled at his work on earth, he was given a similar job in Heaven to scribe the records of everything that happens on earth and keep the Akashic records, which is the “Book of Life”. He is the chief recorder in Heaven and in charge of recording and organizing all the records. He helps us understand Heaven’s perspective and to learn how to work with the Angelic realm. He has a special place in his heart for children, especially those who are spiritually gifted. After the Exodus, Metatron led the children of Israel through the wilderness and into safety. He continues to lead children today, both on Earth and in Heaven and helps them to adjust to Heaven after crossing over.

Judaic, Cabalistic    Only one of the two Archangels whose name doesn’t end with an “el”, Sandalphon is the twin brother of Archangel Metatron. The twins are the only Archangels in Heaven who were originally mortal men. Sandalphon was the prophet Elijah and Metatron was the wise man Enoch. God gave both men their immortal assignments as Archangels to reward them for their good work upon Earth, allowing them to continue their sacred service from Heaven.

Elijah’s ascension occurred when he was lifted up to Heaven in a fiery chariot pulled by two horses of fire, accompanied by a whirlwind, an even recorded in the second chapter of the Book of 2 Kings.

Sandalphon’s chief role is to carry human prayers to God so they may be answered.  He’s said to be so tall that he extends from Earth to Heaven. Ancient Cabalistic lore says that Sandalphon can help expectant parents determine the gender of their forthcoming child and many also believe that he’s involved with music as well.
