I thought I would do some clarifying on the Archangels, especially since I use the Angel Oracle Decks for my daily inspirational messages.
I know some of us have never heard of some of these Archangels. Each religious and spiritual path has its own doctrine concerning the archangels.
I use in my daily inspirational messages, Doreen Virtue’s Oracle decks. There are 15 archangels from Catholic, Jewish, Cabalistic, Christian and Islamic ancient spiritual practices and beliefs. Even if you have not heard of a specific Archangel the message is still guided by the Divine. Anyone can call upon an archangel as they have no time or space restrictions, so they can simultaneously be with everyone who calls upon them.
I found this additional information on the web explaining about Angels and Spiritual beings. I hope this has helped clear up some confusion.
Angels are pure, created spirits. The name angel means servant or messenger of God. Angels are celestial or heavenly beings, on a higher order than human beings. Angels have no bodies and do not depend on matter for their existence or activity. They are distinct from saints, which men can become. Angels have intellect and will, and are immortal. They are a vast multitude, but each is an individual person. Archangels are one of the nine choirs of angels listed in the Bible. In ascending order, the choirs or classes are 1) Angels, 2) Archangels, 3) Principalities, 4) Powers, 5) Virtues, 6) Dominations, 7) Thrones, 8) Cherubim, and 9) Seraphim.
