Uriel, the Divine Fire’s Archangel


If you are suffering; if you are beset by doubts or if your life is in disarray; if you have lost your way… invoke the Archangel Uriel: he will intercede in your favor and your heart will quickly become lighter.

Who is the Archangel Uriel?

Uriel is the fourth archangel and he is considered to be the most intelligent of the Celestial world. The other three archangels are Gabriel, Michael and Raphael. The Archangel status is the highest status in the hierarchy of the Angels.

Uriel means (in Hebrew) “Son of God” or “Fire of God”, depending on the tradition. He can be found in Jewish writings and is recognized by the Orthodox, Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches.

Uriel is the Prince of Light. He is often pictured with a celestial flame coming out of his open hand and going skywards. But in some engravings, he can be seen with a book lying at his feet. This book is the guide to medicinal plants he had offered Adam.

What can he be asked?

Uriel is the one who brings knowledge to men and provides understanding of the Divine. He is said to be the archangel of Prophecy since, according to the writings, God sent him to warn Noah that a deluge was going to strike the earth.

He transmits the word of the Divine. He is also the one who predicts. Therefore, he can be invoked under many circumstances:

  • When you suffer to the depths of your soul, Uriel can help you scar this inner suffering. He can fix the suffering of the soul and of the heart.
  • He can also be invoked to unlock a situation that seems to be in a deadlock. Uriel can guide you to the right path… a path made of love and peace.

Agrippa von Nettesheim, known as Cornelius Agrippa, who was considered as one of the greatest scholars in occult sciences of all time, said the 4 Archangels resided in the four cardinal points of the celestial world.

He also said that these celestial points were the points marking the beginning of the four terrestrial seasons. And Agrippa advised peasants to invoke Uriel on the first summer day so that harvests may abound.
