Have A Go
The word Archangel is derived from a Greek word whereby the word Archi means highest, chief, most important and Angel means a messenger of God. When put together it means the highest messenger of God.
As a Reiki Practitioner, I learned about the Archangels and how they play a major role in healing, giving strength, protecting from negativity or any harm, also while travelling and to learn how important it is for one to forgive.
Archangels are not limited to one religion or culture. They devote their services with lots of love to all so long as they receive gratitude. The Angels are always by our sides and often wait to be called upon to assist us in any way they can.
There are several Archangels, but we shall cover the major ones namely: Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Chamuel, Haniel, Jophiel and Uriel.
Get ready to be enlightened by each Archangel.
Archangel Michael is said to be the first Angel to be created. He is said to be the oldest and the most powerful Ascended Master. The literal Hebrew name means "He who is like God."
He safeguards one and gives one inner strength and direction.
Known as the messenger of courage he dissolves fear and protects from any harm or anxiety. If one feels demotivated, call upon him and let him help you with your problem, as he is very kind and compassionate, he shall sail you through any trials. He helps to find one's life purpose.
If asked what Archangel Michael looks like, he has a strong physic, has brilliant green blue coloured eyes and large white gold wings. His mighty sword which depicts fire symbolizes his power to slay off anything causing harm.
Archangel Michael can be called upon whenever you feel any sort of negative vibe, fear, or anxiety. If You are feeling insecure about something or aren't feeling comfortable visiting some place, call upon Archangel Michael to aid in protection.
If You happen to know someone who may need surgery or maybe you are about to undergo one, call upon him to be there with You during the surgery and to ensure he is giving utmost protection. He can also be called upon to protect all Your near and dear ones too.

I often say this Prayer
Dear Archangel Michael,
Please Protect me and all my Dear ones from harm or negativity. Keep them safe, healthy, and happy always. Shield them with Your brilliant blue ball of protection. Cut off any cords which no longer serve them with Your mighty sword.
So be it!
Archangel Gabriel is also known as the "Strength of God". In the Bible she is said to be the one to tell Mother Mary about the birth of baby Jesus. Archangel Gabriel is clothed in blue or white garments. She carries a lantern, a white lily, and a trumpet.
Archangel Gabriel represents the feminine forces of creation, birth, and motherhood. She is called upon by hopeful parents who are looking forward to conceiving or adopting a child. She also motivates artists and speakers. Call upon her when You are about to begin a new project or venture into something new. She aids to limit procrastination and to overcome fear in the fields of an artist or a communicator.

May You be there for those who are trying to conceive a baby or are at the onset of labour. Let them have a painless and safe delivery.
Archangel Raphael is referred to as "God Has Healed", in Hebrew. He is an Angel who heals any physical, emotional, or mental illness.
Archangel Raphael's colour is emerald, green. At times during Reiki sessions that I give, many of my clients have mentioned that they see sparkles of green or green forests or lush green grass.
This is an indication that when Archangel Raphael is called upon, he is never too shy to show his subtle signs of his presence.
Archangel Raphael is called upon whenever someone has health issues which need to be addressed. He guides and supports all healers. He also helps to reduce or eliminate cravings or addictions and he helps in finding lost pets.
