What are Archangels?
Angels are celestial beings who are attendants, messengers or agents of Divine Source or God. The word archangel comes from the Greek and means chief or primary messenger.
As messengers of God, Source, or Truth, archangels and their guardian angel counterparts are chiefly involved with helping human beings.
Archangels not only work closely with our guardian angels, but actually manage and oversee their activities. These high energy, celestial beings are quite large and powerful, with loud and clear voices that resonate at high vibrational frequencies.
Though messages from archangels may be a bit overwhelming for whose who are not prepared for them, they are very loving and caring celestial beings who are always willing to act on our behalf. It is important to note, however, that the angels will never intercede without your consent.
Though the archangels do not have genders, their functions and personas give each archangel a specific and distinctive type of energy that we interpret as either male or female when we see or represent them.
Archangels are highly evolved, high-vibration celestial beings who we can evoke and connect with for their guidance, love, healing, and emotional and spiritual support.
How can Archangels Make a Positive Impact on Our Lives?
Archangels hold humanity in an unconditional positive regard, meaning that they have nothing but love for all of us, regardless of religious affiliation.
This means that, no matter what your religion or belief system may be, you can call on the archangels for help with any problem.
Archangels are non-physical entities that are not bound by space and time as physical beings are. This means that they have the ability to help anyone who asks for help no matter where they are.
Nothing is beyond the ability of the archangels to accomplish. The archangels each have their own special area of expertise, so knowing which archangels to call upon for help with specific requests increases the speed with which you will receive your answer.
