Ever had a sense that you had a little extra magical protection, you had a hunch that felt like a nudge from another realm or just felt you are not alone in a particularly challenging time? Chances are, you might have sensed the presence of one or multiple angels.
Angels are beings of the highest truth and compassion that work on our behalf to guide our thoughts, emotions and energy back to source, back to love. Angels are nondenominational, not physical and are not bound by the natural laws of this world. These spiritual beings come in many forms and have different purposes. But their common goal is to help guide us back into alignment with the love of the Universe.
When you get stuck in a fear-based thought or pattern you can turn to your guides to help lead you back to love. While often depicted in human form, you can envision them in any way you wish.
The willingness to see a world beyond our physical sight, creates access to a life of more ease, a greater sense of safety and enables us to stand in our true power and essence.
We have the ability to call upon a heavenly support team which is made up of the Divine or God, the Archangels, spirit guides, and loved ones in spirit.
When speaking about the spiritual realm angels, in particular archangels play an important part that can not be left out.
Angels protect us, guide us, and offer great inner wisdom and healing messages.
When calling on specific Archangels, past spiritual masters, spirit guides, and loved ones in spirit to help, we are basically calling in appointed specialists and volunteers to assist us directly through the gifts bestowed upon them by God to act as an advocate on our behalf for the delivery and answering of our prayers.
Each Archangel has a different ‘area of expertise’ which works in conjunction with all of the other Archangels to ensure the best possible journeys for all on Earth.
We have been working with Angel energy since the beginning of Ananda Soul. This blogpost means to introduce and share the Angel energy we have been working with the most:
Archangel Gabriel is the messenger angel of God, the angel of communications, one may say. He is known as the Great Messenger and Angel of revelation as he is often chosen by the Divine to communicate important messages. He is tasked with the creation of ideas, belief in oneself, and sharing inspirational messages to stimulate progress and bring new ideas into being. It is this very energy that brings in a strong belief in oneself to carry out the dreams and achievements to its final completion.
He is one to call upon when we want to write and speak. He helps artists, writers and teachers share their messages with clarity, intention and meaning.
Archangel Gabriel can be found in our 'Dare to Shine' pieces.
If you’re having trouble speaking up or putting something into words, Archangel Gabriel will help you find the right way to say it, in support of you to stand in your light and ultimate truth.
Archangel Raphael is the angel that assists in physical healing.
In Hebrew, his name means “the medicine of God”. His energy is filled with compassion, which initiates his mission to heal people's minds, spirits, and bodies and bring souls back into alignment. It is the misalignment of our souls that creates dis-ease, sickness in the first place.
The energy of Archangel Raphael shows as the sudden insight, a hunch or prompt of new information coming through that inspires an action which enables healing. He is the guide through any form of healing and he is tasked to be the one who walks you through what is needed to come back to the deepest truth of your soul.
Raphael stands for joy and laughter, inviting in humour and lightness into all of our situations, because stress and grimness are not in service of our highest and greatest. If you find yourself confused and out of alignment in your life, call upon the energy of Archangel Raphael. He inspires to pursue healing not only for yourself but also for the Earth's environment, ultimately leading us back to love for ourselves and our planet.
The energy of Archangel Raphael can be found in our 'Live your truth' pieces.
He is there for you when you are sick, and if you are a healer or work in healthcare, then you can trust that he is always by your side. When it comes to mental health or addiction, Raphael will guide you to clear fear and stress so you can restore your inner peace and to lead you towards harmony.
Archangel Raphael is often associated with a healing emerald green light. You can envision this light surrounding whatever health concern you need his help with.

Archangel Ariel is known as the angel of nature and protector of the earth. Ariel is sometimes depicted in male forms, however more often seen as female. She oversees the protection and healing of resources, animals and plants as well as the Earth’s elements and ecosystem. Some interpretations even say Ariel is the liaison between the human and the world of spirits, fairies, crystals and other manifestations of magic.
The energy of Ariel inspires us to take sustainable action towards taking care of our planet, its inhabitants, ourselves. She also nudges us to create great art, to indulge in scientific discoveries and encourages humanity to share and deliver miracles from God into people’s lives. Together with Archangel Rafael she caries an energetic aspect of healing and cherishing our bodies as they, too, are a part of nature and our earth.
Archangel Ariel is depicted in our 'Honor this body' range.
Ariel’s presence will help you heal the environment and feel deeply connected to our planet. So if you seek to forge a stronger connection with the natural and elemental world, to deepen your relationship to animals and natural elements like wind, water and plants, she is the angel to call upon.
The willingness to be entwined with Mother Nature allows Ariel to support us in grounding and connecting with the Earth in order to receive abundance and manifest physical desires.
If you find yourself in need of a heartfelt connection with Mother Earth, give yourself to the warming and rose-colored energy of Ariel.
Not exactly an angel herself Mother Mary is often referred to as the Queen of Angels.
That is partly because she has had so many interactions with angels: Her own birth was predicted by angels, and Archangel Gabriel personally gave Mary the news that she was destined to be the mother of Jesus.
She is gentle yet strong, constant, nurturing, grounded and wise. Mary is an ideal divine entity to call upon if there is a situation you need to surrender to. Mary understands as well as anyone the many challenges, lessons and limitations of earthly life, so Mary will often enter our lives when we need someone to stand beside us during our trials.
Her energy is quite powerful and, like the angels' energy, very maternal. Mary's signature energy is best described as grounded and even. It is the type of energy one needs to persevere. It is a caretaker's energy, a nurturer's energy; the energy of someone who has weathered many storms. It is an energy that says "stay the course."
Pray to Mary and the angels when you need someone to advocate for you with the Divine, because Mary and the angels have an inside track.
Mother Mary can be found in our Compassion and You are loved pieces.
Asking archangels and Mother Mary for help gives them the freedom to help you even more. The more you nurture these relationships, the more they will grow.
You will always receive clear direction when you feel misguided, and be lead to solutions of the highest good for all. They will remind you that you that all you are is love.
We acknowledge Mother Mary and the Archangels as key figures of Christianity. Please note that we are working with the intention and energy of the symbols rather than promoting or following a specific religious belief.
