Teachings on Angels

“Angels transcend every religion, every philosophy, every creed. In fact angels have no religion as we know it…their existence precedes every religious system that has ever existed on earth.” St. Thomas Aquinas~
Psalm 91:11-13 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

It is important to call on guardian angels when you are experiencing trying times, however it is even more important to know who to address when you have difficulties. I stress through all my writings that educating yourself on spiritual matters can allow you to feel less stressed, and more self assured. It is not important to have things like candles, oils and other spiritual aids. What is important is to have clear intent, focus, and a deep desire to heal.

Herein I only mention 3 of the 7 Archangels, but these three are very closely associated with many of my clients requests for assistance over the years and it is in so being that I am listing these here for you.

Archangel Michael

Many times we feel worried, frightened or otherwise disheveled by life’s situations it is in these times that we should call upon Archangel Michael. When the prefix “arch.” is attached to an angels name it shows the hierarchy of this angel is translated as chief-angel; Michael means “he who is as god.” His main purpose is to hold at bay the evils of the world, guard those who have deep faith in god in times of spiritual stress, and he is the one who threw satin back into the pit. His position is steadfast, his sword and amour are for spiritual battle, and he will never fail those who need spiritual assistance in battling the demons of the flesh, and of the spirit.

Calling on Archangel Michael

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend me from battle;
Be my safeguard
against the malice and snares
of the negative seen or unseen energy forces.

Rebuke the negative energy forces oh God
I humbly beseech you,
and do thou oh prince of the heavenly host,
by the Divine Power of God
thrust into the darkness,
all the negative seen and unseen energy forces,
and all of the ugly spirits who wander about the world
seeking the ruination of souls.

In Jesus Christ's name I pray,
who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit
One God
forever and ever.

Again praying with intent is important so when you decide that you need Archangel Michael to defend you make sure you know why you want him and what exactly you want him to do to help you with your personal demons.

Archangel Gabriel

Are you in need of guidance in the form of inspiration, are you procrastinating to the point of ridiculousness? Having trouble communicating? In need of a spiritual cheerleader? Then The Archangel for you to speak with is Gabriel. Gabriel’s name is translated as “God is my strength.” She is associate with women, childbirth, birthing new ideas, and a magnificent orator. She is unstoppable in her spirit and her purpose in life is to encourage and inspire people to be aware of the greater possibilities for their own lives and take action.

Calling on Archangel Gabriel

Saint Gabriel the Archangel, I venerate you as the Angel of the Incarnation, because God specially appointed you to bear the messages concerning the God-Man to Daniel, Zechariah, and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Give me a very tender and devoted love for the Incarnate Word and his Blessed Mother more like your own.

I venerate you also as the “Strength of God” because you are the giver of God’s strength, consoler and comforter chosen to strengthen God’s faithful and teach them important truths. I ask for the grace of a special power of the will to strive for holiness of life. Steady my resolutions; renew my courage; comfort and console me in the problems, trails and sufferings of daily living, as you consoled our Savior in his agony and Mary in her sorrows and Joseph in his trials.

I put my confidence in you. Saint Gabriel I ask you especially for this favor: (mention your request). Through your earnest love for the Son of God made man and for his Blessed Mother I beg of you, intercede for me that my request may be granted, if it will be God’s holy will.

Pray for us, Saint Gabriel the Archangel, that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.

Archangel Raphael

Do you feel you have lost your way? Is there something missing in your life, or in your personal possession? Are you suffering from emotional trauma, spiritual bewilderment, addicted to a substance, or simply just needed some personal direction? Then the Archangel for you is Raphael. His name means “God Heals.” He is the one you call upon when you are in need of healing of any kind. Also, he is known as “the Patron of Travelers,” so when you are going to go on a journey ask him for protection to make your travels more peaceful. Archangel Raphael is the bearer of healing reaching out to Raphael is the first step to admitting that you are in need of a higher power.

Calling on Archangel Raphael

Glorious Archangel Raphael, great prince of the heavenly court, you are illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace. You are a guide of those who journey by land or sear or air, consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners.

I beg you, assist me in all my needs and in all the sufferings of this life, as once you helped the young Tobias on his travels. Because you are the “medicine of God” I humbly prayer you to heal the many infirmities of my soul and the ills that afflict my body. I especially ask of you the favor of (mention you special intention), and the great grace of purity to prepare me to be the temple of the Holy Spirit. Amen

God, with great wisdom You direct the ministry of Angels and men. Grant that those who are always minister to You in heaven may defend us during our life on Earth. Amen.
