Archangels are the managers of the angels. Archangels and the guardian angels that are the most involved with helping Earth and her inhabitants.
They are larger and more powerful than angels. They are nonphysical … yet they are very much perceptible, audible, and visible as you tune in to them.
The word archangel is derived from the Greek archi, which means “first, principle, or chief”; and angelos, which means “messenger of God”. So, archangels are chief messengers of God.
Archangels are extremely powerful celestial beings. Each one has a specialty, and represents an aspect of God.
The exact number of archangels depends upon which belief system or spiritual text you consult. The best known of them are:
Archangel Michael’s name means “he who is as God” or “he who looks like God”. He’s the archangel who releases the effects of fear from the planet and much more.
Archangel Metatron’s name means “angel of the Presence”. He’s thought to be the youngest and the tallest of the archangels, and one of the two who once walked upon the earth as a man (as a prophet Enoch). Metatron works with Mother Mary to help children, both living and crossed over. In the Kabbalah, Metatron is the chief angel of the Tree of Life, where he guides humans at the start of their spiritual journey.
Archangel Gabriel’s name means “God is my strength”. In many cases Gabriel is portrayed as a female archangel, but sometimes as a masculine pronouns. She (or he) is the messenger angel who helps all earthy messengers such as writers, teachers, and journalists.
