Archangel Uriel is part of the 12 chieftain archangels in charge of the universe’s well-being.
It allows us to gain divine wisdom and knowledge and brings truth to humankind. Therefore, Uriel values all acts of kindness toward the welfare of communities.
Even though Archangel Uriel is not as prominent as its peers, Jewish religious and esoteric texts depict it as having immense power over dark entities.
This article will outline its main characteristics while seeking to appreciate its influence throughout history.
Who is Archangel Uriel
According to the ancient Hebrew language, Uriel means “God’s Flame” or the “Light of God.” It provides access to divine wisdom, truth, and light aligned with your current vibration and spiritual understanding.
It is said that only those with an open heart and devotion toward divinity can grasp the messages. That’s why it may prove challenging to connect to Archangel Uriel and recognize the signs intended to support your spiritual journey.
What Is Archangel Uriel Known For
Archangel Uriel is there to help you develop your ability to recognize and dissolve negative energies and entities. It will also guide you toward diminishing unhelpful attributes like selfishness, impure desires, and thoughts.
Call upon its presence to:
- Bring the divine light into your daily life to help heal past mistakes, release emotional traumas, and forgive those who have done you wrong;
- This acknowledgment will help you restore peace and reinstate balance by transforming negative energy into pure light;
Rushing to invoke Archangel Uriel may not be the best way to go about it. Jumping head-first is often an approach you want to avoid.
Even negative energies and entities deserve their time in this physical plane before exiting your body or personal space. This is because they play a crucial role in your development, and respecting their presence is a healthy approach.
Suppose you were to immediately bring the “Flame of God” into your life without cleansing and raising your spiritual vibration. In that case, you’d probably distort the existing ecosystem.
That’s obviously something you want to avoid.
Therefore, before invoking Archangel Uriel, meditate, practice Reiki, and pray to create a gradual transition instead of an abrupt change.
Its energy and vibration can overwhelm you if you hurry to solve your problems without setting the stage first.
What To Expect
Your experience is unique, and connecting with Archangel Uriel is different than meditating or practicing Reiki. It’s possible that it may have little tolerance for your mistakes, and that’s why it’s best to start by asking for forgiveness.
Show that you’re ready to adjust the course and allow its presence to guide you toward fixing those wrongdoings harmoniously and in the best way for you.
If you respect its presence and assistance, the benefits can be immense.
You’ll begin healing from within while learning how to be in service of others through compassion, forgiveness, and understanding.
How To Recognize Archangel Uriel
Archangel Uriel is usually depicted holding a flame or a light sphere in one hand and a book or parchment in the other.
The light resembles the divine truth that is unchangeable, unshakable, and irreplaceable;
The book or argument symbolizes the divine wisdom that contains all the answers for guiding humanity on the right path toward enlightenment and spiritual evolution;
Although there are many versions, Archangel Uriel is known as a more masculine presence. Even so, it’s possible to meet it in your dreams as either a man or woman.
Uriel will offer you hints on what to do in that moment of your life. These may also appear as prophetic visions of the future that can guide you toward better decisions and actions.
Remember that you will connect to its optimum extension for your greater good when invoking its presence. Like all divine beings, we are unable to comprehend their actual size. So, to avoid being overwhelmed and genuinely benefit from this encounter, we only get access to part of their energy according to our current vibration level and spiritual understanding.
Archangel Uriel In Religious Texts
One of the most notable mentions of Archangel Uriel is in the Second book of Esdras, which belongs to the “Biblical Apocrypha,” written in the 5h century BCE.
In this book, the prophet Ezra prays to God about the Israelites being oppressed by the Babylonians. Ezra has a series of visions that are revealed by Archangel Uriel, at which the archangel tells Ezra:
“You cannot understand the things beyond those with which you have grown up; how can your mind comprehend the way of the Highest?”
By this, Archangel Uriel tells Ezra that people cannot comprehend the perspective of God, as He has a vast and complex plan that expands on eons instead of a few decades.
In the later chapters, Ezra understands a glimpse of God’s plan and the end of times, in which Archangel Uriel reveals to Ezra apocalyptic images that terrify him.
Still, Archangel Uriel explains to Ezra that if he keeps his pious and humble attitude, given the information he has received, he will be considered righteous for entering heaven.
After Ezra receives more visions, Archangel Uriel asks him to keep the information and wisdom to himself, as the rest will not comprehend God’s plans.
Book of Enoch
In the Book of Enoch, Uriel appears as one of the 12 superior-ranked archangels who rule over many types of angels and divine entities. Within these texts, Uriel warns Noah of the upcoming world flood that will clear the Nephilim and the sinners. Yet, Archangel Raphael is the one who offers Noah the ‘Book of Archangel Raziel,’ which contains the knowledge of building a giant ship.
In the same book, Archangel Uriel escorts Enoch through the multiple levels of heaven. Here, he encounters many angels and archangels and learns about their role in heaven and Earth.
Apocryphal Christian Texts
In the apocryphal Christian texts, Uriel is the mighty presence that stands at the Gate of Eden, wielding a fiery sword as an angel of repentance.
Due to its immense power, Uriel resembles a seraph or cherub rather than an archangel. It is seen as the flame of God and the deliverer of salvation.
In these texts, Archangel Uriel appears as the rescuer of John the Baptist from the children’s genocide of King Herod.
The Anglican Church recognizes Uriel as a saint of sciences, art, and confirmation of divine prophecies. They see this divine being as the keeper of light, constellations, and regent of the Sun. Moreover, they celebrate Uriel within the “Feast of Archangels.”
Apocalypse of Peter
In the Apocalypse of Peter, Archangel Uriel takes on a rather aggressive stance as it is responsible for the resurrection of the dead when Judgement Day takes place.
Uriel will punish the sinners, non-believers, and those who speak evil of divinity.
In the Zohar, the four primary archangels identify as the four Christian beings of power – the lion, the eagle, the ox, and the man. Each changes roles according to God’s command and intention.
They are the bringers of light in the four points of heaven, while Uriel is the angel that carries light to the west.
In Islam, Archangel Uriel is considered the angel of death.
How To Know If Archangel Uriel Is With You
Archangels can manifest themselves through people without the “host” even realizing it. Uriel is no exception.
This doesn’t imply “possession” but rather a sudden change in energy when the person can communicate something meaningful within a short timeframe.
You can invoke its presence or ask it to manifest randomly, but bare in mind that, either way, it will happen according to your current perception.
- Through its manifestations, you may experience a feeling of guilt in regard to your actions toward others. The purpose of this realization is not for you to feel bad but to experience a sort of awakening that will determine you to avoid past behavior;
- Archangel Uriel can also offer you a sense of justice and order as well as the opportunity to make sense of the world. But, again, everything will happen in accordance with your present perception;
- When called upon, Archangel Uriel can offer healing, compassion, wisdom, and a feeling of wholeness;
- Its company is usually felt as a warm, bright-yellow light;
- Believe it or not, Archangel Uriel can even manifest as a teacher for love and caring for others;
Perhaps his ways are more straightforward but compassionate nonetheless.
How To Connect To Archangel Uriel
Since Archangel Uriel is a more authoritative entity, it’s probably best to use a gentle approach rather than a direct one.
This means you can use prayers, meditation, or Reiki to gradually build a link between the two of you.
Sending light to an angel or archangel is a form of spiritual offering and a method of connecting to them. It’s like acknowledging their existence and power and requesting permission to create an energy string. In turn, this will give you the privilege to ask for support and guidance in your various endeavors.
Connect Through Reiki
As far as I know, there isn’t a specific symbol in any Reiki system that allows you to directly tap into the energy print of Archangel Uriel. Therefore, let’s continue with a method any practitioner can implement.
- Find a quiet time of the day, play some high-vibrational music, and light a candle;
- Activate your palms with all the Reiki symbols you have access to;
- Activate Cho Ku Rei + Sei He Ki on your primary chakras. Then, add Zonar + Halu + Rama if you have the Karuna Reiki attunement. Remember to do the same for their back projections to help raise your vibration and receive the best information for your well-being.
- Continue activating Cho Ku Rei + Sei He Ki + Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen (+ Dai Ko Myo for Usui Level 3) in front of you. Then, add Zonar + Halu + Harth + Rama if you have the Karuna Reiki attunements.
- Start sending energy to Archangel Uriel;
- Ask to guide you in specific situations or to support your life’s path. If the answer is yes, request the necessary wisdom to fulfill your spiritual mission as best as possible;
- Always offer your gratitude at the end of the session;
- This should last anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes;
As mentioned above, you can use prayers or meditate on its presence to create a connection. Still, I find that sending light toward Archangel Uriel will smoothen the process and harmoniously connect with its energy.
After a while when you feel you’re developing a genuine relationship, you can experiment with other modalities.
One Final Thought
Take your time with Archangel Uriel, and don’t take it lightly.
Uriel can bring compassion, wisdom, and light but also dispel negative energies and entities.
Because it is often identified as a “divine fatherly figure,” it can seem harsh, but its intentions are pure. Archangel Uriel desires what’s best for you. It will always show you the truth so you can rise above your condition.
Its energy complements archangels Gabriel, Michael, and Raphael in their efforts to help humanity thrive. Each brings a unique value as a specific manifestation of the divine light. Yet, even if they have distinct roles, we should respect their unity in supporting our spiritual mission here on Earth.
