10 Aug The Seven Archangels
The archangels, who supervise the angels, are 7. Before being able to call upon them, it’s good to know about their specific characteristics. That way, you can immediately call upon the Archangel in charge of the domain that you wish to change in your life.
The Seven Archangels are heavenly beings closest to God. So you can solicit them at leisure as they always will be of great help.
1- Metatron, He who is next to God
Metatron is an important archangel considered very close to God in Judaism as Chancellor of heaven: one that directs and organizes the celestial kingdom. Metratron is not only the Archangel nearest to God, but also one that has the most original journey to the extent that he was a man that God called to him and to whom he conferred the status of Archangel because of his exceptional abilities. For many, it is Enoch, great-grandfather of Noah and the patriarch author the Book of Enoch found in the Old Testament. Metraton is a great scribe who writes the various events of our existence in the Great Book of Life. It gives us sufficient clarity of mind to make the right decisions, help us to know our limits and our true nature.
2- Michael, Saint Archangel and the Great Therapist
The peculiarity of Michael, one of the best known archangels, is being a saint without having been human. He is a heavenly being who has always lived in the heavens and has been made holy by God because of the good deeds he has done on his mission on Earth.
Saint Michael is considered the healer archangel or the Great Therapist because of his therapeutic and spiritual healing abilities. He is the patron saint of the sick which one can call upon to prevent or cure diseases. St. Michael is the patron saint of professions at risk (soldiers, sailors, fishermen, police, health professionals) but also to any person required to take responsibility and to put themselves in danger for good causes.

Jophiel imparts knowledge and educates those who call on him.
