There are many angels who are helping us on various levels. While everyone is assigned two guardian angels at birth, we can connect with other angels like the archangels. There are 15 archangels that appear in text across various cultures. Today we will be working with three archangels who will assist us in disconnecting ourselves from negativity, healing wounds, and focus on visualizing our needs and wants. Doing this background work will grant us that internal permission to transform into the best version of ourselves and heal fully.

Listen to the meditations for transformation and healing with Archangels Michael, Raphael, and Uriel on The Spiritual & Empowerment Living With Tia podcast episode, #171 Manifesting with the Archangels here


The term archangel means chief angel. So, each archangel has a set of functions they oversee. Imagine these archangels as a specialties coach who focuses on three traits and works on honing in that skill. They are messengers, as all angels are, some archangels elude feminine energy and other male energy, and they are always here to help. In episode #171, I recommend a book for you to read that explains in depth archangels and the other angels who help us.

A common question I get is, “How do I know I’m working with an archangel?”

It’s really simple to know for several reasons:

  • Archangels will never encourage you to do something harmful.
  • You’ll feel a shift of energy (Think feeling warm, cool, or safe) but you won’t feel afraid.
  • You’ll receive messages of reassurance, like seeing a feather on the ground, or an inclination to do something inspirational, like take a dance class.

Archangel Michael is the chief protector angel. His name means he who is like God. Archangel Michael provides guidance and protection as well as clearing obstacles and shielding from us harm. He assists people who protect and serve like the military, firefighters, and police.

Archangel Raphael

Archangel Raphael is the chief healing angel; His name means God heals and he also makes an appearance in the dead sea scroll text in the book of Enoch, which I have seen at The Franklin Institute in Philly. Archangel Raphael deals with healing, comforting, clearing fears, and relieving stress. He also assists people in the healing field, such as doctors and nurses.

Chakra: Solar plexus as it’s color is yellow and it deals with our personal power.



In the episode, #171 Manifesting with the Archangels, I describe how we can work with the archangels. The key thing to remember is to set an intention. Similar to when you want to meet up with a friend, you’ll have some kind of itinerary for the day, even if you don’t stick to it. Think about why you want to connect with the archangels and what would that mean for you to do so. Focus on keeping your vibration high, your heart open, remain proactive.
