Archangels and angels are spiritual beings whose primary function is to act as intermediaries between mortals and God. Angels have fascinated human beings for millennia.
Angels are always willing to be of assistance. They love you and want you to be happy. They will never interfere in your life unless you ask for their assistance. Angels can't do anything for you directly, but they can guide you, make suggestions, and help you avoid potential obstacles. In return, they simply ask that you deepen your connection with your spirit and open your heart to the powerful forces of love and gratitude.
Surprisingly, the angelic realms are structured and have hierarchies. Depending on the tradition, there are many levels and numerous categories. The term archangel comes from the Greek word archangelos, which means chief or eminent messenger. They are also known as the "Holy Ones."
When you are working with the angels, take some time to get to know them. Each one has a unique personality, and each one has an area they excel in. Once you get to know them, you will instinctively know whom to call on. Allow them to become your friends, and become familiar with all of them. Once you develop the habit of calling on them, you will find it becomes almost second nature to acknowledge their presence and welcome their assistance. They are more than willing to help you, so why not let them?
