This is the third week of my fifteen week series on Archangels. Today I am going to talk about another of my favorite Archangels – Gabriel. Because I spend much of my time writing and talking, I work closely with Archangel Gabriel to guide my words and bring in opportunities to share my communication gifts and be of service.
Gabriel means “Strength of God.”
Archangel Gabriel is known as the messenger of God. Gabriel is named in the bible, in both the old and new Testaments. Gabriel helps Daniel understand his visions in the Old Testament. In the New Testament, Gabriel announces the impending births of John the Baptist and Jesus the Christ. Archangel Gabriel was also the angel who divulged the Qur’an scripture to the prophet Muhammad.
It should come as no surprise that Gabriel is the patron saint of communication workers knowing Gabriel’s core mission as the messenger of God. Many religious traditions did not recognize women in divine roles so Gabriel was originally portrayed as male to support the patriarchal rule. Although the name Gabriel is associated with the masculine, throughout history artists have depicted the archangel with both feminine and masculine features. In truth, all angels are genderless, but the energy they emanate in accordance with their specialties has distinct gender qualities. Gabriel’s specialties are related to creation, communication, pregnancy, and births so exudes a Divine feminine energy.
Archangel Gabriel is the one to call on if you need help with conception, pregnancy, giving birth, adopting, or raising children. Gabriel also works closely with Mother Mary to aid perceptive children. You could say, “Dear Archangel Gabriel, please watch over me during my pregnancy so that my child and I are both healthy and happy,” or you could say, “Thank you Archangel Gabriel for helping me be a kind, understanding, loving parent to my dear children.”
Gabriel’s aura is a beautiful copper color. Citrine is the stone associated with Gabriel and can be used to connect to her soft, nurturing strength. Although Citrine is one of few stones that never needs clearing or cleansing, it’s always a good idea to set your intention with any stone prior to using it. If you are a visual person you can find a picture of Archangel Gabriel that resonates with you and use it to focus you intention to connect with Gabriel.
Archangel Gabriel loves to help other messengers, like teachers, artists, actors, writers, reporters, politicians, personal and spiritual development coaches, speakers, facilitators, counselors, therapists, child welfare advocates, and adults who wish to be of service to children and young adults. If you have a career in any one of these areas and need some support in moving up, increasing your pleasure, financial security, or impact ask Gabriel for guidance. If you’re having trouble birthing new ideas, creating a fulfilling, financially rewarding livelihood sharing your message with the world, if you’d like to find a meaningful career in any area of communication ask Gabriel for help in finding the best path for your heart and soul to express its highest good.
Gabriel can help motivate you to refine your skills, open new doors of opportunity in your chosen field, and lovingly push you if you hesitate or procrastinate. You could say, “Dear Archangel Gabriel, please help me be of the highest good and service in my current career and enable me to make a prosperous living doing this meaningful work so that I can be at my best physically, mentally, and emotionally,” or you could say, “Archangel Gabriel, please guide me to the most meaningful training and career path for my innate talents and abilities, which will fully support me in a very comfortable lifestyle while allowing me to bring abundant blessings to the children or adults I serve. Thank you!”
If you are struggling with a dilemma or desire for which you need specific details or crystal clear guidance to resolve, call on Archangel Gabriel. Gabriel will provide guidance to you in ways that are familiar and safe to you, so be cognizant of the signs and signals that may seem mundane or obvious. If you’re open to more ethereal guidance you may get images or hear a gentle voice just behind your shoulder offering you direction. Many angels use your own body intuition, and imagination to send you signs and guidance, but these can often be brushed off as coincidence or wishful thinking. If you experience a certain feeling, get a certain image, or mentally see or hear a certain phrase or words on three separate occasions after you have asked for guidance or help you can be assured that it’s Divine guidance.
Angelic guidance will never ask you to do or say something that goes against your values or morals or cause injury to yourself or another person. It will never berate, insult, or judge you or others, and it will never put you in a position of physical danger. Many times divine guidance will urge or nudge you to do something that may feel uncomfortable or random, because what is necessary is for you to get out of your comfort zone and do things that you may have been resisting or avoiding. We often ignore or oppose doing things that aren’t familiar because we fear failure, embarrassment, or rejection, but facing those types of fears can actually be a catalyst to creating the life of our dreams.
If you suddenly find yourself drawn to copper objects or copper colored clothing and jewelry, Archangel Gabriel is helping you to connect to her energy. If you begin finding lots of pennies, seeing horns or trumpets, or hearing music with horns or trumpets that’s Gabriel trying to get your attention. If you find yourself unsure of the message or guidance simply ask Gabriel to clarify or illuminate the message or guidance so that you know, without a doubt, what you are being told or guided to do. Don’t be surprised if answers come from people around you, billboards, Youtube videos, Facebook posts, or other social media outlets that you frequent. Signs and guidance will become clearer and more recognizable the more you ask for and expect it. If you become uncertain or anxious about following a certain piece of guidance ask Gabriel to give you the support and nudge that you need to follow through. Just remember when connecting with archangels or any other divine beings you should be in a neutral, calm, or positive state in order to accurately receive guidance and answers. Always make sure to specify that you only want to connect with the highest divine realms for the highest good of all.
The angels will never force or require you to do anything as they are not allowed to interfere with your free will. That being said, if you are in a life threatening situation that may take you away from your soul contract prematurely the angels can, and often do interpose. don’t hesitate to call on any or all of the archangels and your guardian angels for protection, healing, and guidance in an emergency. The more you work with the angels the more rapidly you will recognize and understand the help and assistance they offer.
