The 7 Archangels

Regardless of religion or our belief system, stories about angels are part of our heritage, the fabric that makes up human history.

Very often, references to angels refer specifically to an archangel.


The prefix "arch" means ruler or chief in Greek.

Religious texts refer to an archangel as being at a high level in the heavenly hierarchy. Although the exact number of archangels is not known, many traditions and beliefs refer to 7 archangels. Many scriptures speak of him as healers and guides, intervening in many difficult situations in life.

- ARCHANGEL MICHAEL, whose name means "he who is like God", is considered the most powerful protective angel of all angels. He is considered the leader of the kingdom of angels and the protective angel of justice and mercy. He is depicted as a warrior most often carrying a sword. Archangel Michael (Michael) witnesses situations in which you are afraid, confused or concerned about your safety. It helps to release fear, doubt, and to bring about changes in life.

He is often said to work closely with those who do healing work or provide spiritual teaching. It can even solve mechanical and electrical problems! Archangel Michael can be helpful in these different areas: courage, leadership, energy and vitality, all aspects of life purpose, motivation, clearing of space, liberation of the spirit , dignity and self-esteem.

- ARCHANGEL RAPHAËL whose name means "God heals", is the designated archangel

for physical and emotional healing. In Hebrew, the word "refa" means "to heal". Archangel Raphael not only helps heal individuals but also healers in their healing practice. It can help reduce addictions and food cravings and is powerful in healing other wounds and illnesses, with healings often being immediate.

Moreover, it helps to restore and maintain harmony and peace. In addition, it also protects travelers, watching over them to ensure a smooth and safe journey. Together with Archangel Michael, he helps dispel fears and stressors that can have adverse health effects.

- ARCHANGEL GABRIEL: his name means "God is my strength". One of the 2

archangels specifically named in the Bible and in the Old and New Testaments, is often depicted holding a trumpet. Archangel Gabriel is the angel messenger, who acts as a messenger from God. It helps writers, teachers, journalists and artists to convey their message and to find motivation and confidence.

It also helps to overcome fear and procrastination issues in communication as well as in all areas related to children including conception, pregnancy, childbirth and child rearing.

- ARCHANGEL JOPHIEL, patron saint of artists, his name means "beauty of God".

It helps us to think beautiful thoughts and stay positive, thus creating and manifesting beauty in our surroundings and in our hearts. Archangel Jophiel watches over artists who support the creation of fine art, helps us slow down and bring calm, heal negativity and chaos.

Besides, it also helps to tame your ego and to bring organization to a given place or situation. When you seek wisdom or a change of perspective, He calls you to uplift you and help you see things from another point of view.

- ARCHANGEL ARIEL, patron saint of animals and the environment, her name

means "lion or lioness of God". Its role is to protect the earth, its natural resources, its ecosystems and all wildlife. She is always available to give advice for any activity involving the environment, the protection, healing, regeneration and / or preservation of our environment.

Archangel Ariel helps in the healing of injured animals by working closely with Archangel Raphael. She would also monitor the order of the physical universe, including all the planets, the sun, and the stars. When she seeks to learn more about nature or to make deeper connections during her hikes or explorations, she helps provide ideas and opportunities to expand your awareness and experience.

- ARCHANGEL AZRAEL: his name means "the one whom God helps".

However, he is often called "the angel of death". Azrael meets souls and aids in the transition from death, in addition to helping souls that have just passed through to adjust. It also helps loved ones who are still on the planet cope with their grief.

Archangel Azrael helps grief counselors protect themselves from their clients' pain absorption and guide their words and actions. This archangel helps in all types of transitions and endings. It also helps during transitions related to relationships, careers, addictions ... by helping us go through life changes as smoothly as possible.

- ARCHANGEL CHAMUEL: his name means "the one who sees god".

This archangel has had many names throughout history and is therefore sometimes confused with other angels. Its mission is to bring peace to the world. It protects the world from fear and negative energies and vibrations. Archangel Chamuel helps us find the strength and courage to face adversity when we think we no longer have it.

It can also help find lost items, find important parts of our life like purpose of life, romantic relationship, new job, positive friendships and solutions to problems encountered.

Finally, it also helps relieve anxiety, build peace and restore relationships and misunderstandings.

This list is the most common but some names may change depending on beliefs. We also speak of the 12 archangels in certain writings: Chamuel, Gabriel, Jophiel, Michael, Raphael, Ariel (or Uriel, two different archangels), Azrael or Zadkiel, Haniel, Jérémiel, Metatron and Sandalphon.


The particularity of these 2 archangels is to have come to experience the human condition on Earth, which allows them to be closer to men and gives them a particular power to help them in their needs.

-METATRON is considered one of the most powerful archangels in the hierarchy

celestial beings. He is said to be the assistant, the scribe of God, which places him at the head of the angels.

His name means "assistant to the throne".

He is the supreme angel of death and forgiveness. He welcomes the souls of children who have died before or prematurely after birth and teaches them things for their next life.

Archangel Metatron appears particularly in Jewish literature, but also in the Bible. Although normally angels are heavenly creatures that were created during the founding of the world, Metatron is said to have human origins.

His human origins could be traced back to Enoch, the biblical patriarch of the Old Testament, who was allegedly chosen by God to become an archangel. Thus, this prophet, Enoch, was brought to Heaven to become a fiery angel, with 36 pairs of wings and countless eyes, which would have enabled him to continue his existence as a heavenly scribe.

Sandalphon is said to be the twin brother of Metatron, with a human past in the form of the prophet Elias.

Metatron is often pictured iconographically irradiated with pure white light. It does not normally have human characteristics as it usually does not appear in embodied form.

When it appears, it has the appearance of a pillar of fire which can blind anyone who beholds it.

It is he who transmitted to man the Cube of Metatron, a figure of sacred geometry which has a very high vibratory rate and is cataloged as the most powerful protection against all energies or negative beings.

-SANDALPHON, archangel of music in Heaven.

Its duty is to send the prayers of men to God.

He acts as a muse for musicians, singers, composers ... All the works that result from their hard work come to life thanks to the help provided by Sandalphon.

Sandalphon can help you with music whatever your taste. It can make us benefit from the virtues of each sound, these allowing to raise our internal vibratory frequency, as well as the external vibratory frequencies which surround us.

It allows you to be in a better mood and to feel fulfilled.

Very down to earth, he knows what it's like to be a man and to have feelings and mood swings from his time as a human on Earth.

Its large size (it is the largest of the archangels), it is able to connect to the heavens from Earth. It is the illustration of the link which exists between the Earth and the Heavens.

It teaches us to balance our life on earth and to prepare the one to come, to use the powers which are ours to find the balance between the two worlds and to benefit from it.

If you learn to balance the divine energies with those of the physical world, it is possible to reap the benefits. Sandalphon will help to harmonize the energy that is in us and that runs through our soul. It channels energy on Earth and opens the floodgates to benefit us. His energy cradles us with love and realization so that we can illuminate our earthly situations and achieve the fulfillment of our wishes!
