Getting to Know the Archangels. By

There is an amazing world that exists just beyond our conscious awareness. It is a vast and even easily accessible world to tap into once you know about and understand it. It is the amazing and awe-inspiring world of angels and archangels.

These loving beings support, guide, and surround us in light and love. Just waiting for us to open our hearts and minds to the possibility of the miracles they have planned for us.

This blog series is about getting to know the archangels so that you can tap into the angelic realm and feel the wonder and amazement it can bring into your life.

The World of Angels

Angels are our connection to the spiritual realm. They are the messengers of God. They not only make sure our prayers reach the heavens and are received by our Creator, but they also watch over us, protect us, and guide us throughout our lives and along our life path.

There are several kinds of angels, including seraphim, cherubim, thrones, archangels, and general angels.  All of which have different angelic ranks and responsibilities.

The most well-known angels are the guardian angels and the archangels – and there is a reason for that. These types of angels are the ones responsible for assisting and looking over humanity. Both of these kinds of angels are important and loving forces in our lives, but they have very different roles.

Your guardian angels are one of the most important and significant forces in your life and as you navigate your spiritual journey. Everyone is born with at least one guardian angel. These angels watch over and protect you throughout your entire lifetime. Your guardian angel is the one always, unconditionally, and lovingly guiding you along your life path and providing comfort along the way. 

On the other hand, there are Archangels.

Who are the Archangels?

Archangels are a group of angels that God has assigned to support, guide, and deliver his messages to us. They also defend, provide protection and fight for the greater good of the earth and all its inhabitants.

The word arch comes from the word archi, meaning “first,” and denotes someone who has authority over a group. The word angel comes from the Latin word angelus, which means messenger.

All angels are the messengers of God, and the archangels are the ones who oversee and manage the other angels in the angelic realm. They ensure everything is running smoothly and all is well.

Each archangel also specializes in certain areas of humanity. They oversee, manage and help those of us who are in need of their specialization and power. 

There’s an Archangel For That

There are several archangels, some better known than others. And each one has a specialty that is particularly helpful to call on in times of need. If you need help with finances, love, health, negative thinking or finally de-cluttering that closet – there is an archangel who can help with that.

Archangels are available, ready, and willing to help us through any kind of situation you can imagine. As a matter of fact, archangels love when we ask for their assistance. All you need to do is ask, and the archangels will be there to guide, communicate, heal, and perform miracles for you. 

Unlike our guardian angels, archangels will come and go as needed throughout our lives but are always available to call on and ask for assistance. They’ll even come just because you feel like having an angel hanging around.

Archangels, as with any spiritual being, are not limited to time and space so there is never any reason to worry an archangel or even several archangels are too busy or that you might be a burden. They can simultaneously be in many places, in many times, and accomplish as many tasks as needed.

Getting to Know the Archangels Blog Series

In this blog series, Getting to Know the Archangels, I will be introducing you to several archangels so you can start getting to know them individually.

Then you can call on specific archangels for any need, problem, or celebration you have. Have a conversation with the archangel you feel most connected to. Or ask an archangel to be by the side of a loved one.

But that is only the very first step in your working with and getting to know the Archangels.

One of the primary ways I get information about the Archangels is by connecting with them and talking to them. It is what is called evoking the Angels, meaning to call on them to bring their presence before you and assist you. I find this to be incredibly powerful. And I really encourage you to try to do the same thing by using your intuition and innate ability to connect with the angels. That way, you can get to know them on a very personal and intimate level. I promise you that, beyond a doubt, it is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding experiences you will ever experience in your lifetime.

It is best to take your time to get to know the archangel you feel most drawn to. The most effective way to understand and know what archangel is most suited to provide what you need is to get to know that angel like you would a best friend, family member, or someone close to you. What each archangel has to offer me may be different from what they have to offer you – and even still, what they have to offer you right now may be vastly different from what it will be a few years from now.

So the purpose of this blog series is to introduce you to and help you get to know the Archangels and ultimately connect with them more easily. Once you begin learning about and bringing your awareness to an individual archangel, you have already begun the process of connecting to them.

If you want to evoke an archangel, read through their description with the intention of connection, and also be sure to read this post about invoking and evoking the Archangels that will be available soon.

Do I Need to Know All the Archangels?

Knowledge of specific angels is not necessary or even important for everyone. The only thing you need to do is think the word angels. They know what is in your heart and will respond accordingly.

The archangels will respond and assist whenever they are needed or where there is a true heartfelt desire for their assistance. All we need to do is realize they exist and ask for their assistance. 

However, there are a couple of reasons why learning about and getting to know the archangels is helpful.

First of all, I personally have found great reward and comfort in knowing who the archangels are and what it is they do. Knowing about each angel and building a relationship with them makes me feel confident when asking them to assist in my personal life and with friends and loved ones. I also love having the ability to ask specific archangels to be with those in need of assistance.

Another reason is that through the process of learning about and getting to know the archangel, you are opening the channels and gates of communication, beginning the process of bringing that angel into your life.

So, for those of you who want a deeper and closer relationship with a specific archangel (or many of them), I am writing this series for you.
