The word “Archangel” comes from the Greek words “arche” (ruler) and “angelos” (messenger) symbolising that archangels have dual duties: ruling over the other angels, while also delivering messages from God to human beings.
What is an Archangel?
We are all familiar with angels, and we all have a guardian angel who was assigned to us at birth who protects and guides them throughout our lives.
Archangels are like guardian angels in that they are directly involved in the affairs of living beings such as humans and animals.
But archangels are of a higher order and act with a higher spiritual authority. Each archangel supervises angels with different types of specialties from healing to wisdom. They work together on the light ray frequencies that correspond to the type of work they do.
The Archangels and our Guardian Angels are willing and able to help us whenever we need it. All we need to do is ask.
Archangels each have colour ray and they are:
Blue: Michael, leader of all the holy angels.
Yellow: Jophiel, the angel of beautiful thoughts
Pink: Chamuel, the angel of peaceful relationships
White: Gabriel, the angel of revelation
Green: Raphael, the angel of healing
Orange : Uriel, the angel of wisdom
Purple: Zadkiel, the angel of mercy
