Archangels and Their Divine Responsibilities
Jan 16, 2020
Do you believe in angels? It’s possible you have already met one in your life without even realizing it.
It might be that good Samaritan who helped you change your tire, that fellow patient who stayed with you in the hospital waiting room, or that person who returned a precious thing you lost. After all, God blessed the world with angels so they could help each of His children.
We often appeal to God, our Creator, when praying for courage, enlightenment, or wisdom. But it’s not just Him handling the heavenly support hotline. You can call on the spirit guides, loved ones in spirit, and of course, angels.
They all work with God to provide the highest good and communicate with us through intuitive feelings and a variety of other ways.
Who Are the Archangels?
There exists different ranks of the angelic hierarchy. Angels and Archangels are two of these ranks. Angels guide humans as individuals. Archangels protect the whole mankind. They come to us with much love, acceptance, and deep compassion.
Their duties include facilitation of life paths, soul contracts, order within the natural world, and much more. They also act as a bridge to help us receive wisdom and divine inspiration. There are 15 or so Archangels who can be called upon at any time for assistance.

Her energy is powerful yet gentle. Oversees environmental causes, and is known to be a guardian and healer of animals. She can help you provide for your physical needs such as shelter, money, and supplies.

When To Call On The Archangels?
Angels are more active than many people would assume. No matter how big or small the problem may seem to you, they will make no judgements as you request for help. Consider the following situations wherein you can always call on Archangels for guidance:
1. To find a lost object
Archangel Chamuel or Michael can help you reunite with lost objects, especially things that are close to your heart. However, there is no set time frame on when they will be able to help you find a lost item. If you’ve been asking for a long time and it's still missing, it may be that the item no longer serves you. You need to let it go.
2. For a smooth travel plan
Most of us get nervous during long flights or cruises. You can rely on Archangel Raphael to calm your anxiety and make sure your travel plans go smoothly. He is the ultimate traveling companion who can handle every travel detail. He can make your journeys safe and peaceful because it is his mission to ensure your well-being.
3. Facing new beginnings
Sometimes in life, we need that extra push in the right direction or some encouragement to help us believe in ourselves. Archangel Metatron can help you break away from destructive habits and align with your path of purpose.
You might be a student who’s about to take an important test, or a manager with an upcoming business meeting. In this case, you will require a sharp and stress-free mind so you can think and answer questions with ease. Just call on Archangel Uriel and watch how smoothly things unfold.
God gifted you with family, friends, and a romantic partner so you could experience many different expressions of love. Relationships can be joyous, but they can also be complicated.
Call on Archangel Raguel or Chamuel if you want harmonious relationships in your life.
6. To fight depression or anxiety
If you are feeling depressed or anxious for whatever reason, calling on Archangel Raphael can help to ease your worries. He brings healing to those who suffer from anxiety or depression. He guides those who feel alone or lost, unmotivated or exhausted.
7. To get rid of negative energies
Do you feel drained at times? Do you have people around you that seem to absorb your life-force out of you? Archangel Michael can clear negative energies from within and around you. He will protect you from negative thoughts and emotions of others towards you, you need only ask.
How to Call on Archangels For Help?
There is no formal training needed to ask Archangels for help. But there are some specific ways that immediately align you with a manifesting mindset. This will allow the angels to work their abilities and bring you what you need to create your intentions.
1. Ask from the heart
Be honest. After all, you don’t have to say what you want out loud. It is a communication between you, the Archangel of your choice, and God. If you find it difficult to do so because your heart is clouded by anxiety, grief, or fear, take a deep breath and tell it to your Archangel. You can say, “At this time, I am not sure how to ask you for help. Please show me the true desire of my heart.”
2. Be specific
Being specific about what it is that you want helps the angels focus their energetic forces. Instead of saying “Please keep me safe.” A better request would be, “Keep me and my family safe throughout the flight or this difficult situation.”
3. “I am ready” intention
Before asking, you should know exactly what you want to receive. Use this statement to ask the angels for help with just about anything. For instance, you can say “Archangel (name), I am ready to embrace/create/receive ___ for my highest good. Thank you.” While saying your request, keep your words positive and focus on what you want.
4. Request for people or resources
Sometimes, we need the help of others to achieve our dreams, especially if it’s related to a business or a life purpose. Ask your angel to put you on the mind of anyone who can help you in any way. You can say “Archangel (name), please bless my life with the people and resources I need to create/achieve ___. Thank you.”
5. Inspiration request
Writers, journalists, entrepreneurs, artists, etc. can reach a point wherein they might feel drained with new ideas or uninspired. The angels can reignite their brain and imagination in order to get clarity. They can use a phrase like, “Archangel (name), please give me ideas and inspiration to help me formulate/create ___. Thank you”
The angels are here to help you navigate through life safely, as well as joyfully. However, they can not assist you unless you ask for their help (except for emergency situations).
We each have a guardian angel that is with us for our entire lifetime. But you can always request guidance from more angels no matter what you’re going through in life.
