What Are The Archangels?
Every person has a divine protector, a spirit guide that watches over them. They are made by God and their purpose is to bring love, peace and serenity to all humanity. We can call our guardian angels in times of need through prayer and we can rest assured that they will help us surpass the difficult time. (1)
When we call for a specific Archangel for help, it is like we are asking God to help us since Archangels are God’s appointed helpers and messengers of His word and His divine power. In God’s name, the Archangels will answer our prayers if we ask them for help.
The Archangels have the vital job of protecting humankind and making life on Earth a safe and pleasant space to live in. They all have different roles and they are all connected so that they can offer help to anyone who calls them in prayer. (2)
The Archangels always come into our life with deep understanding, compassion, acceptance, and love. They work for God and they obey Him and His commands. That’s why their name always finishes with ‘El’ which means “of God.”
The Archangels are never exhausted. They can also exist at many places at a time thus helping as many people needing their help as they can. Archangels love us and they want to assist us with their guidance throughout our life. They want us to call them. They want to be close to us. They want to protect us.
Is there a difference between Angels and Archangels?
Angels are pure and perfect incorporeal beings. They are God’s creation with the purpose of serving Him and His people and being His messengers. They represent God’s image and are always ready to help those in need. They listen to God’s word and obey Him always. They are the truest and most faithful executors of Him and His commands. Angels are spirits that exist for God only but are also very close to humans since they help them to practice God’s will.
The Archangels, on the other hand, are also angels but of a higher rank. Their duties are very similar to those of angels, however, what is required of them is more glorified and important. All their names end with ‘EL’ which means ‘of God. They carry God’s name in their name thus remaining close to Him and protecting His image. Moreover, every Archangel comes with a different mission.
Angels and archangels are present in every religion – they aren’t restricted by the bounds of religions and transcend the differences between them. Angels are considered genderless, and the names that were given to them bear a meaning and frequency that can best describe their nature.
Every number has its own vibration, and each archangel governs over one or more of the frequencies that correspond to the numerological system. To discover which archangel governs over your number (and thus protects you), you first need to calculate your numerology number using your date of birth.
For example, I am born on 31.07.1991, which means that I need to reduce this number sequence to a single number (or leave it at a cardinal number).
Simply put, 3+1+0+7+1+9+9+1 = 31, and 3+1 = 4. So my number is 4, making Archangel Haniel my guardian archangel.
If you get numbers 11, 22, 33, and 44, don’t reduce them, as they are the master numbers in numerology.
Once you have calculated your life path number, read below to see which archangel reigns over that number and what this means for you.
