Your Archangel Spirit Guides

This page is part of the Your Spirit Guides series.

archangels as your spirit guide

Archangels appear in almost every religious text. Almost all religions and even non-religious cultures recognize some sort of archangel. The English word archangel is derived from Greek ἀρχάγγελος, which translates to chief angel. They are considered the highest rank of an angel. As such, they are very powerful beings. Archangels are the leaders of all angels. An archangel spirit guide can be called upon for assistance and guidance when the situation is dire.

Archangels appear in most Abrahamic religions (such as Christianity, Islam, and Judaism). There are seven archangels in most religions, including Zoroastrianism, one of the world's oldest continuously practiced religions. Others only recognize three or four. Though some archangels might be separated by religion, it is widely believed that all spirit guides, of all types and religions, work together as one in the spiritual realm. They learn from each other, help one another, and live in harmony.


Who Are Your Archangel Spirit Guides?

You won't have an archangel on your spirit guide team. They are simply too powerful and there are not enough to go around. However, each archangel has its own area of focus or specialty, and they can help countless humans and other angels all at once. So, while you may not have one directly on your team, you can think of them as being "on-call". 

Archangels are said to emit incredible light energy and high-frequency vibrations. If you are an empath or sensitive to such energy, you will likely feel a shift of energy in the room when you call upon an archangel and they answer. Keep in mind, unless the situation really needs the assistance of an archangel, they may not answer and leave it up to your guardian angel instead.


Communicating with Archangel Spirit Guides

When a situation has gotten out of hand, things are dire, or feel hopeless, you can call on an archangel for assistance. It's said that there are thousands of archangels but we are only privy to a select few. All angels, including archangels, are non-denominational and help people of all faiths. The one you call upon for help doesn't have to be of the same religion as you. Once you have called on an archangel for assistance, you will then have to look for the answers they provide. Read more about how your spirit guides communicate with you.

Archangel spirit guides are powerful angels and while they can help many people at once, their power is reserved for those who really need it. So, make sure your request isn't frivolous or erroneously self-serving. If it is, it will likely just be ignored. Which archangel to call upon for guidance depends on your request as each one has its own area of focus. You can read more about this further down.


Crystals for Archangel Spirit Guides
