The Top Archangels Of All Time

Your guardian angel is watching over you now.

Can you see him or her?

You might be caught up with your daily life to the point that you might miss out on the gentle messages of these celestial beings.

In fact, they would be right beside you. You will know they are there if you can sense the signs.

The best way to connect with your guardian angel is to know who they are and what they can do for you.

As majestic as they are, they are here to serve you if you know how to tap into their power.

There are four types of angels: angels in human form, angels in nature, angels in the higher realms, and the Archangels.

Angels in human form are evolved humans who have been born onto Earth to help raise the vibration of the planet.

Angels in nature exist outside of visibility, unless they choose to manifest into reality. The existence of fairies and elementals has been noted and believed in for thousands of years already.

Angels in the higher realms on the other hand are the workers of the archangels. Each of them work for a specific archangel and bring information to us from their overseer.

These angels work “behind the scenes,” and are always there when you need them. Angels of the higher dimensions and archangels can appear to us in dreams, meditations, or visions.

Archangels are the highest-ranking angels in heaven. They are performing the most important responsibilities and they are doing their work in both heavenly and earthly realm. The word Archangel is extracted from the Greek word “Archi,” which when translated means “first principle or ruler.”

The word “Angelos,” is extracted from the Greek language and means “messenger of God.” Therefore in accordance, the word Archangels refers to the hierarchical group of celestial angels who act as the chief messengers of God.

Given that they are ranked higher up in the order of angels and celestial beings, it comes as no surprise that Archangels are powerful and benevolent beings whose main purpose is to execute the will of God.

Some scholars and priests like to see them as facets of God, each representing a unique power and trait of the Lord. These facets, or Archangels, together radiate the divine light of the most supreme energy- that of God himself.

Why is connecting with an angel so important for your daily life?

Here’s why…

Angels are sent to guide us, protect us, love us and teach us important life lessons. Connecting with angels is more than just strengthening personal and spiritual growth, because it is through our relationship with angels that we are also reminded of our mission and divine life purpose to fulfill our Creator’s divine plan for us.

The Hawkin’s Levels of Consciousness

Angels are light beings with much higher frequency compared to humans. According to Sir David R. Hawkins, a psychiatrist, philosopher, and physician who has been researching spirituality and consciousness for decades created a Map of Consciousness: a numerical scale that measures where one is on their journey of consciousness.

The scale is split up in levels of consciousness in numerical order. The lower levels of consciousness are referred to as Levels of Falsehood and include: 20-Shame, 30-Guilt, 50-Apathy, 75-Grief, 100-Fear, 125- Desire, 150-Anger, and 175-Pride. The higher levels of consciousness are referred to as Levels of Truth and include: 200- Courage, 250-Neutrality, 310-Willingness, 350-Acceptance, 400- Reason, 500-Love, 540-Joy, 600-Peace, and 700-1,000- Enlightenment.

At the 400-Reason level of consciousness we see the great scientists and leaders in medicine and physics. These people win Nobel Prizes and advance our humanity because of their contributions.

The next level of 500-Love is said by Hawkins himself to only be reached by 0.4% of people on the planet. 540- Joy is reached only by saints, healers, and advanced spiritual students. 600-Peace is for only reached by 1 out of 10 million people, and it is by those who contribute the most to mankind.

The 700-1,000-Enlightenment level of consciousness is reserved only for the avatars and ascended masters that have come to Earth such as Jesus, Buddha, Muhammad, Krishna, etc.

Archangels on the other hand are not human.  

They are celestial beings and their vibration is at the level of 50,000! Higher than even any ascended master combined!   

If the scientist, leaders and even the ascended masters can make a huge difference in our lives with their level of wisdom and consciousness, how much more if we ask help, protection, wisdom and guidance from Archangels? Hence, it is very important to have regular connection with them for guidance and wisdom.

The Archangels- Who Are They & How They Serve Humanity

There are far more Archangels than most of us ever realized, however, for the purpose of this article we will give you fifteen of the most known and loved Archangels of all time namely: Ariel, Azrael, Chamuel, Gabriel, Haniel, Jeremiel, Jophiel, Metatron, Michael, Raguel, Raphael, Raziel, Sandalphon, Uriel and Zadkiel.

Among all the many ways that angels serve humanity, we will give you the top 5 roles of the Archangels and these are:

1) To Fulfill a Mission

The first is to help us fulfill a mission by giving us information we need to know.

Have you ever woken up in the morning or the middle of the night and realized that there was something very important you needed to do?

Maybe it dawned on you to take a vacation to see the Grand Canyon, because it was something you need to do but you never did.

2) To Protect

Sometimes strange things happen to prevent us from doing something what we were planning to do.

At the time the interference might seem like a real downer, but over the course of a day or two you might see that it was caused in order to save you.

3) To Help Us Develop Patience

There are times in life where clarity and understanding can seem very far away.

This is called a paradox, when you are incapable of moving in one direction or the other, because good and bad possibilities exist down each road.

Sometimes all you can do is wait it out, and 99% of the time the waiting is what eventually straightens out the kinks and brings that final push of clarity to help us make a decision.

4) To Bring Comfort

The most obvious space in which angels offer comfort is in mourning the death of a loved one but Angels also bring comfort whenever things don’t go as planned.

5) To Provide Unconditional Love

Unfortunately, not all human beings are capable of unconditional love. This is where the angels come in. If you just need some comfort, complete non-judgment, and a recharge of light and love—go to the angels.

Angels are not just loving spiritual beings but also very powerful, but the challenge is that you don’t know how to connect to them and invoke their divine presence in your life to guide you and help you whenever you need them.

Well, this article has been created to help you do exactly that, if you’re willing to consider the possibilities.

Let me present to you our top pick Archangels with summaries of their roles and specializations so you will know who to call for help in different situations.
