The archangels are the overseers of our guardian angels.They appear to be much larger in size than other angels and their energy can be felt much stronger. As very powerful beings they love to help with all earthly matters from helping human beings to helping the plants and animals.

As with all angels, the archangels are egoless which means they don’t have an ego like with human beings. The ego causes us to doubt yourself, believe in fear, and can cause you to have hateful feelings.

While the archangels may have male and female names, the angels are actually gender-less as they are essentially forms of energy. However you may come across certain archangels which have a stronger masculine energy to them or vice versa. In this guide you may see gender identities used such as ‘she’, this is to make it easier to read but also in the type of energy most feel strongest when in the presence of this archangel.

The archangels are some of the most loving spirits and energy you will come across, and they love to help you in anyway you can.The angels know everything about you and more, so you can always feel safe in their presence.


To invoke the archangels is actually very easy to do. Here are a number of ways you can do so.

  • Prayer
  • Ask for them out loud
  • Speak to them telepathically
  • Sing
  • Write to them on a piece of paper

For the archangels to help us all we have to do is ask. By using the above methods the archangels will come to your immediate help. Why not start with something simple and ask one of the archangels for protection. It can be as simple as going – “Archangel Michael, please protect me from any negativity that I may come across today”. It is that easy, and you cannot do it wrong.

For those of you wondering why not prayer straight to God or the divine, well when you prayer for the archangels help, it is God and the divine that sends them to help you.

The archangels are multi dimensional and not restricted to time in the same way we are here on Earth. So don’t worry about calling on the archangels in fear that you may be taking them away from more serious situations. The archangels can have an individual experience with everyone at the same time.

The angels and archangels are nondenominational, this means anyone can ask the angel realm for help.

There is no limit to what you can ask for help with. Even if you go for the classic “please find me the perfect parking spot” obviously you have to ask this in advance but you can even if you believe what you want to ask for may trivial the archangels say just ask. When the archangels help with the little things in life, this can make you a happier person which then creates a ripple effect to others around you and so on.

In this guide you will also see different types of crystals that can be used to assist with invoking and communicating with the archangels. No guide is 100% with this though and so it is best to go with your own guidance. Crystals are not a magic key to being able to communicate with the angels but it can help strengthen the connection.


Firstly you will be glad to know that you do not have to be clairvoyant, a medium or psychic to have an angelic experience. The angels and archangels help anyone and everyone who asks upon them with no judgement. The signs they give us can be subtle but when you start to recognise the signs they’ll become ever more apparent.

The angels are a fan of using all our senses to get our attention. Take a look at these…

  • Sight – you may see flashes of light in the form of streaks or little dots of light, most often seen in the corner of your eye. Some people even have experiences of seeing a fully formed angelic being in front of them.
  • Sound – you may hear the archangels say your name as you’re falling asleep or you may hear phrases or words in your mind which are responses to your prayers.
  • Taste- some people getting a sudden taste in there mouth of something sweet and tasty even though they haven’t recently eaten that particular food.
  • Touch – you may often find during moments of stillness such as when you’re falling asleep or during meditation you feel like someone is blowing at your forehead even if there is no draft and all windows are shut.
  • Smell – this is one that people often experience when communicating with the angels is a sudden smell of roses in the air even though there isn’t nothing nearby that could be the source.

The angels and archangels also love to give you messages by giving you repetitive thoughts and feelings. For example you may keep getting spontaneous thoughts that you should join up to a particular sports or health club, this may be the angels giving you guidance in response to a prayer that you have asked for.


The angels and archangels also like to leave us physical signs to show us their presence. A common method is the finding of feathers in your path. If you doubt that the feather you have just found is a sign from the angels then ask them to show you more for validation. You will find more often than not that you come across more feathers.

The angels also like to use the clouds to get our attention. People can often see cloud formations in the shapes of angels or cherubs or even in the shape of something that may be in response to a prayer. Next time you’re at a sacred site such as stone henge take a look up at the sky and see if there are any cloud signs for you.
