This week I’m talking about another of my favorite archangels, Uriel.

Archangel Uriel seems to be one of the most mysterious archangels; eluding the clear definitions bestowed to Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael.

Uriel is also known by the names Aretziel, Auriel, Nuriel, or Phanuel

The Christian Gnostic scripture and the Second Book of Esdras in the Biblical Apocrypha both name Uriel. In the Apocrypha God sends archangel Uriel to answer a series of questions posed by the prophet Ezra. According to the Revelation of Esdras, Uriel is listed as one of several archangels who will rule at the end of the world.
Uriel is one of the archangels who protected humanity from the Watchers, (a group of fallen angels), according to the Book of Enoch, and guided the prophet Enoch, who later ascended into the archangel Metatron.

According to Christian theology, Archangel Uriel rescued the infant John the Baptist from the “massacre of the innocents,” and guided him and his mother, Elizabeth, as they escaped Egypt. The Episcopal and Anglican traditions and holy writings also mention archangel Uriel. He is acknowledged as the Patron Saint of the Sacrament of Confirmation. Some Episcopal churches regard Uriel as the advisor of the sun and constellations and the caretaker of beauty and light.

Uriel means, “The Light of God,” and he can truly help light your way to success.

You can call on Uriel to guide all of your intellectual pursuits. One of Uriel’s specialties is illuminating our minds with information, ideas, epiphanies, and insights. He’s exceptional to call upon whenever you need an ingenious solution to a problem, at business meetings, while writing or studying, or when taking a test. Call on Uriel when you can’t see what your next step should be. He can give you information and inspiration to get you moving again.

If you need to think outside the box, need to make a rapid decision, need to be more practical and grounded, need more knowledge on a specific topic, need to understand complicated concepts, need help with technology or social media, need confidence when dealing with intellectual people, or need to recognize how smart you truly are call on Archangel Uriel.

He’ll provide support, guidance, and information to you in your most acceptable form, possibly whispering correct or appropriate answers in your ear, as words or thoughts that suddenly pop into mind, through other people you communicate with, in conversations you overhear, or from radio, internet, or television. Take note of your thoughts after you ask Uriel for help. You can trust whatever you get is the right answer, delivered directly from his divine mind to yours.

You could say, “Dear Archangel Uriel, please help me focus my mind so that I receive all of the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding I need,”  or “Thank you, Archangel Uriel, for giving me ideas, information, and insights about [topic].”

He also works closely with the archangel Zadkiel to help students’ ace tests and excel in school.

Uriel can also support and assist you when you need to end a relationship peacefully and compassionately. He can help you develop more kind, considerate, tactful communication skills in all of your interactions. Call on Uriel when you need help and support giving a speech that engages and impresses your audience. Uriel can help you exit an unhealthy job situation and transition into better, more rewarding employment, or help you start your own business.

Archangel Uriel helps us with self-discovery and transformation by illuminating the infinite wisdom of God to which we have unlimited access, often sending teachers, mentors, or friends to us who share our quest for inner power and potential, and aids us in focusing upon and developing intellectual pursuits.
