Hierarchies of Angels: Archangels, Guardian Angels and their Powers

Updated: May 22, 2023

Angels are beings of light from the 7th dimension and above. Angels come from the Divine Creator. They do not have free will as humans and animals on the Earth Plane do. Their will is the Divine Creator’s will.

Angels are also warriors and fight against legions of demons. So, rest assured, they can kick your ass. Get the chocolate box picture of angels sitting on fluffy clouds out of your head right now. Angels are tough and businesslike.

Angels vibrate at a frequency that is beyond our visual and auditory range, so we cannot usually see them but we might sometimes feel their presence. Some people can connect with angels because they have trained themselves to do so, or have natural psychic powers.

The Nine Battalions of Angels

There are nine battalions of angels. These battalions are then split into three hierarchies (spheres). The first hierarchy angels are those closest to the Divine Creator. The second hierarchy angels are those who see that the Divine Creator’s plan is carried out in the Universe. The third hierarchy works directly with humans.

Most angels have a specific job and they’re also part of a battalion. Angels are pretty regimented when it comes down to it. They’ve got a job to do and they’re good at it due to slick teamwork.

We can ask angels for help in every situation, from finances to healing and everything in between.


Guardian Angels

Every single person has a guardian angel who protects, loves and looks after them. Your guardian angel holds a divine blueprint for your life. This is the soul contract that you agreed to before you were born.

Sometimes, life events can be traumatic but there is always a lesson in every situation that your soul needed to learn. Your guardian angel organises all the coincidences and synchronicities you experience as part of your soul contract and lessons. So, blame your guardian angel for introducing you to your ex… and learn your lesson! On the other side of the coin, guardian angels also put soulmates and lifelong friends in each other’s path.

When the time comes for your physical death, your guardian angel will step aside. However, as long as it’s not your time to pass, your guardian angel is there to help in every situation.

Spiritual law says, ‘ask and you shall receive’. Your angel has got your back, so if you ask for help (and it’s for the highest good) they will assist you.

Angels must wait until you ask because you have free will and they do not. They can help you with daily life, and achieving your dreams. They can even guide you to heal ancient karmic wounds (tip: everyone has them!)

Your guardian angel loves you (even when no one else does!) No matter what you do in life, their love remains and their help is there if you ask.
