The virtue of angels is that they cannot deteriorate;
their flaw is that they cannot improve.
Man’s flaw is that he can deteriorate;
and his virtue is that he can improve.
Here is a selection of named angels to help you. Whilst it is good to be able to sound an angelic name and to chant it, it is also important not to tie ourselves to a rigid system of correspondences, or think in terms of cataloging when we consider working with angels. The named angels given are ready to lend their support in specific circumstances, but again, we must remind ourselves not to think in terms of limitation. Each angel encompasses both genders, so when you call on the named angels, they will attend you in the gender which most suits the healing operation they undertake. Remember, it must be stressed that there is no need to call on specifically named angels if you prefer not to. You can always invoke the angels of peace, the angels of compassion, the angels of courage, etc.

The Angel of Silence. Charoum blesses the art of listening and teaches us to set a guard over our tongue. ‘There is a mighty power in silence,’ say the angels. How often in life do we feel pressured, really against our will, to say something, to respond with some remark, when it would be better not to do so, but rather keep to a gracious silence? The colour of silence is pure white, pure light and those who can be graciously silent reveal themselves thereby as old initiates. They have mastered the art of silence.

An angel of truth and integrity. When we withhold honesty from ourselves or others, it harms our soul. A mist covers our feelings and our relationships with others – a confusing, distressing mist that makes everything, life’s normal dynamics, seem stressful and traumatic. If you have lost sight of your own truth and you feel the resultant pull away from your center, your integrity, call this angel into your field of spiritual vision with a sincere prayer for help. She will restore you to yourself.

She releases pressure and disturbance from the unconscious realms and makes clear and pure any area of the waters of our soul that have grown murky and unwholesome.
Shekinah and Brigid
These two mighty female angels are beings of the brilliant light of the Ineffable. Brigid is the Bride, the Immortal Daughter of Goddess-God.

Schemael fosters the upwelling of gratitude in the human heart. When these springs have run dry or become chocked, depression and a feeling of disgust with life is the inevitable result.

Therefore, we call on Shemael’s gentle, compassionate gifts, so that the deep wellsprings of the spirit may be renewed.

We can call on this prince of the angels to help us overcome the mindsets and stumbling blocks that bar our way forward. We seek Zuriel’s help in illuminating dim spiritual sight and opening spiritually deaf ears. Of course we should always be careful to convey Zuriel’s blessing as a free gift from the heart, rather than with the thought of replacing a person’s individual viewpoint of our own.
