Archangels are major angels and referred to as "The Magnificent 7". The four most familiar ones are: Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel. However, we also work closely with three others: Jophiel, Chamuel, and Zadkiel. They are the most important intermediaries between God and heaven and are in constant battle with darkness. All are androgynous, meaning they possess both male and female qualities and attributes simultaneously. This combination of the best aspects of woman and man create a pure being of divine energy. Over the years they have been depicted in scripture, art and literature as possessing the appearance of men. Often they are described in masculine terms as in the bible.
Since we all have free will on this earth-plane, these high beings of light cannot help us until we ask for their assistance. Then they can only focus their energy for what they have been asked to do. At the same time, the person who asks for help can only receive that which they allow. So …"ask and ye shall receive."

Like all angels, Michael waits until we are ready to face his light of transformation.
