If there is an angel hierarchy, then archangels are at the top. If you think about it, you have one guardian angel who is assigned to you birth, followed by flocks of angels who are there to help if you call them. Of course, there needs to be someone who is managing all of this, which is where archangels come in. Because of their position in the hierarchy, it stands to reason that the archangels are more powerful than other angels, and you can call for them if you need some urgent assistance in a very dangerous or difficult situation.
An archangel is a spiritual being, which again makes them different from spirit guides, and as such they don’t move in time or space as we know it. This means that an archangel can help us and also be helping someone else at the same time, even if they are on the other side of the world! It doesn’t matter how many people need an archangel, if they are called upon then they will be there to help, and because they can help more than one person at once, you needn’t feel guilty that you are taking time or assistance away from someone else. There is more than enough healing, protecting, and nurturing energy to go around.
One important thing to remember about all of these angels however, is the way in which they are meant to operate. We all adhere to the law of ‘Free Will’, which means that we are in control of our destiny and can make our own decisions here on earth. As such, angels are not here to make these decisions for us and they cannot interfere in our lives or intervene if we don’t ask for them to help us. In that sense, we need to invite the angels in.
There are, of course, some exceptions to this, and an angel can intervene in our lives if we are in imminent danger. One example of this might be if we are about to be hit by a car, or something is about to fall on us from a great height, crushing and killing us. If we are about to die before our time, then an angel can step in and protect us without us having to ask. At any other time, we need to remember our angels and make sure that we call upon them so that they are present in our lives.
