Archangels are radiant, supernatural beings in the higher realm of angels.
They are messengers from God, delivering important signs, symbols and guidance when we are open to receiving them.
Some of the most celebrated of the archangels are Michael, Gabriel, Uriel and Raphael.
In a recent post, we talked about connecting with our Guardian Angels and of their constant presence in our daily lives. Their unconditional love and guidance supports us in countless ways.
Archangels can communicate with us on the earthly plane as well, to assist us in meeting the challenges of our lives, and also in deepening our spirituality and helping us embody greater love, compassion and peace.
A few years ago, after a series of loving communications with Archangel Michael, I felt a strong pull to learn more about the archangels and to create prayers that would invoke their assistance.
With the help of my fellow angel lover and earthly mom, we gathered a mountain of our angel books on her dining room table.
We took notes from the books plus a host of websites, and spent several days comparing information on each of the archangels, finding common attributes between authors.
The prayers below are the result of the Archangel Project and can be used at any time of need.
The archangels are extensions of Divine Love, sent by God to assist us. We are not praying to them as much as through them.
Remember to request assistance in alignment with the highest good of all and to be open to creative solutions.

In The World:
In your morning spiritual practice ask for assistance from the archangels. Notice which ones resonate most strongly with you. Open to their input in all manner of decisions and requests for support today.
In The Heart:
I am always guided and guarded by the Divine presence of angels. They assist me in releasing my fears to the power of love.
