Frequently Asked Questions about the Angels
Q. What is an Angel?

Q. Is there an angel hierarchy?
Yes. These Celestial Beings of Pure Love and Light are here to help us in all ways that are needed, but there is a hierarchy. Angels are grouped into 9 Choirs. Within those 9 Choirs are 3 Orders. The order of hierarchy does not mean that any one angel group is less important than another. All serve a purpose and have specialties, even within their Order or Choir.
The 1st Order: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones
These Angels are vibrationally closest to God.
Seraphim – hold the highest vibration of pure light energy
Cherubim – hold the 2nd highest vibration of pure love energy
Thrones – bridge the material and spiritual worlds

These Angels are the Princes and Leaders of the Heavenly Kingdom.
Dominions –overseers and managers of the Angels
Virtues – govern the physical universe, watching over the Sun, Moon, Stars and all planets
Powers -considered “peaceful warriors” who help to purify the Universe
The 3rd Order: Principalities, Archangels, Angels
These are the ministering Angels.
Principalities – watch over our planet
Archangels – watch over mankind and are guardian of the Angels
Angels – oversee all life forms, human, plant, mineral, etc.
Q. How do I know when the angels are near?
The angels are always sending signs to let us know they’re near. They are quite persistent in their effort to get us to notice them. Although the angels send signs that each individual is most likely able to recognize, some of the typical signs the angels place in our path include:
Finding feathers or coins on the ground
Smelling a pleasant fragrance when there’s no breeze to bring it to you
Hearing repetitive words or songs that have meaning at that moment
Seeing cloud formations in the shape of angelic beings
Having an inspiration seemingly out of nowhere
Seeing a cardinal especially when a loved on has passed
Q. Do I have a guardian angel?
Everyone has a guardian angel! Our guardian angels are the ones who watch over us and are most persistent in trying to get our attention. They are the ones who send us the most signs – pennies, feathers, repetition of numbers, sounds, song lyrics…etc,. They are the ones who first come to our side when we call to the angels, whether or not we know to call them by name. Guardian angels are our “angel managers,” those who oversee other angels whose specialty happens to be taking care of the problem we are currently requesting help with.
Q. Who is my Guardian Angel?
Everyone has a primary guardian angel who is with you since the day you were born. This is your Birth Guardian and is the angel who governs the day of the week you were born.
If you were born on a:
Monday your guardian is Gabriel
Tuesday your guardian is Camael
Wednesday your guardian is Michael
Thursday your guardian is Zadkiel
Friday your guardian is Haniel
Saturday your guardian is Cassiel

Q. Will the angels help me even if I don’t ask for their help?
With the exception of Archangel Michael, who is the angel of strength and protection, the angels need our permission to help us because they will not interfere with our free will.
Q. Is there a right or wrong way to call to the angels?
No, there is no right or wrong way to call to the angels. The important thing is to just call to them. You may invoke a specific angel if you know their name or you may just call to the angels in general. Your primary guardian, whether you know who that is or not, will make sure the right angel(s) are there for you for your specific need.
Q. What’s the best way to ask the angels for help?
As mentioned above, there is no wrong way to ask the angels for help. You may simply:
Say it – call to the angels and ask out loud, for guidance regarding your concern.
Think it – call to the angels silently through your thoughts asking for their help.
Write it – write down your angels name and then your concern.
Visualize it – imagine the angels are with you, and “see” yourself stating your problem, asking for help.
Affirm it – affirm your situation solved by thanking the angels for their help, either out loud or silently (don’t worry about “how” it was solved – just affirm).
Q. How do I invoke the angels for a specific reason?
You can simply call to the angels by asking them to be with you and stating what you need help with. Or, you may create for yourself a personalized protocol for invoking the angels which is unique to you. Here is an example of a basic invocation.
- Sit in a comfortable position with your hands resting, palms up, on your thighs.
- Take three slow deep breaths, releasing any tension you may feel as you exhale.
- Close your eyes and focus on your breath inhale relaxation and exhale tension.
- Clear your mind by letting go of all thoughts (like you do before going to sleep at night).
- Continue to breathe normally and when ready say the name of your angel three times and ask that the angel be with you now (or if you don’t know which angel to call, say the word “angels” three times and ask for them to be with you).
- State what you need help with.
- Next be still and notice any thoughts that come to your mind, any sensations you might feel, any colors, shapes, numbers, or pictures you might see through your mind‘s eye or any sounds you might hear with your “inner ears.”
- When you’re done, make sure to thank your angel. Angels love to know you appreciate their guidance.
