Angels are almost universally acknowledged, holding an important place in most religions and beliefs. Most of the Guardian Angels that I introduce to you in your Angel Readings belong to the orders of Archangels and Angels. These celestial orders are the closest to us here on earth and our strongest link with the Divine. In fact, the word Angel comes from the Greek 'angelos' meaning 'messenger' - between humans and God. All our angels and guardian angels belong to this realm. Angels can be an important link also to our other spirit guides, and that is how I can sometimes introduce these guides to you. Archangels are the higher emissaries between God or the Divine, and humans. The 'el' at the end of the Angels' names means 'shining being'. Christianity recognizes 7 Archangels, while Judaism recognizes 4. According to the Book of Enoch (second century BC), these are the 'holy angels who watch'. They are God's holiest and most trusted Angels.
In my brief introductions below, I have combined traditional and Christian descriptions along with those of earth based religions.
Uriel (Auriel) Associated with the Earth element Color: White, Gold, Earth tones This Archangel is 'over the world'. Archangel Uriel's name means Fire of God, and he is known as The Angel of Repentance. His Christian symbol is am open hand holding a flame. In Christian tradition, Uriel is also the Angel of Music, The Angel of Poetry and the Angel of Prophecy. Uriel also assists in communicating with nature, and can be called on to assist with material and earthly matters.
