(I invite you to read the post Ask Your Angels here, a richer and more recent excerpt from my interviews with Doreen that includes the short section below.)
Ray Hemachandra: Would you talk about some of the specific archangels and what they do?
Doreen Virtue: Absolutely! Archangel Michael is the angel to call on for physical protection of yourself, your loved ones, and your home, vehicle, and possessions. He can help you have more courage and strength if you are going through any sort of change — the kind you know you must make but are intimidated about.
Call on Archangel Raphael for any sort of health issue — for yourself, your loved ones, your clients, or your pets. Raphael also helps people who want to do healings for others, whether you want to do it on a one-shot basis for a loved one or you would like a career in healing.
Archangel Gabriel is wonderful to call on for two major categories. She helps anyone wanting to have a baby — whether you are looking to conceive a baby or to adopt — and helps with the pregnancy and the birth of the baby.
Gabriel, who is known as the messenger of God, helps with messenger work, naturally. Gabriel assists writers, teachers, and communicators, especially journalists. If you want to complete a book project, call on Gabriel. This angel is what I affectionately call a “nudging angel,” and she will push you along to get your book done.
Archangel Jophiel [pronounced Jo-fee-el], whose name means “beauty of God,” has a feminine energy, and she helps you beautify your thoughts.
Most people who are on a spiritual path realize their thoughts are crucial to their experiences. If you have negative thoughts, you draw and attract negative experiences to yourself. But knowing that and ruling your behavior by it can seem like two different things.
How do you get yourself out of a funk? How do you avoid being influenced by someone else who is in a bad mood? Jophiel helps you rise above negative thinking to get your thoughts to a higher level where you can clearly manifest your highest good.
Archangel Jophiel also helps you beautify your physical life. I call this angel “the feng shui angel.” Jophiel encourages you to get rid of clutter and to donate things you don’t need anymore.
Chamuel [pronounced with a “Sh”] is another archangel I’d like to highlight. Chamuel is like the eyes of God.
This angel is analogous to Saint Anthony in Catholicism in that Chamuel can find things like nobody’s business — which is really handy for lightworkers, because a lot of lightworkers constantly lose their keys or misplace their checkbook or eyeglasses. Just think the thought, “Where is it?” and Chamuel immediately will draw you to find what you are looking for.
Archangel Chamuel can assist with more than car keys, of course. Chamuel can help you find right livelihood, right relationships, and the right home.
