There are total of 15 archangels known to us. Each Archangel has their own purpose, but they help us in all situations when called upon with a pure heart. Like Crystals there are Archangels associated with each Chakra, and every Archangel has an affinity to a certain crystal! We can call upon the Archangels by shouting out their name thrice or connecting to them with the help of Distance Symbol HSZSN or using the crystal associated with the Archangel.
1. Root Chakra
The Archangel associated with this Chakra is Archangel Sandalphon. His main role is to carry our prayers to God, so they may get answered. He is also associated with music and we might feel his presence more when we listen to music, sing or play an instrument. So next time we want to balance our root chakra we can just put on some music, call upon Sandalphon and get our Chakra balanced . His Crystal affinity is Turquoise.
2. Sacral Chakra
The Archangel associated with this Chakra is Archangel Chamuel. He also helps in love, confidence and career matters. His Crystal affinity is Rose Quartz or Fluorite.
3. Solar Plexus
The Archangel associated with this Chakra is Archangel Uriel. He is considered as one of the wisest Archangels because of his intellectual information, practical solutions and creative insight, but he is very subtle. We do not even realize that our prayers have been answered till we have a brilliant idea hitting us . His Crystal affinity is Amber.
4. Heart Chakra
The Archangel associated with this Chakra is Archangel Raphael. He is associated with all forms of healing in living beings. He is also associated with travel. We can call upon him for safety and protection when embarking on a journey. His crystal affinity is Malachite.
5. Throat Chakra
The Archangel associated with this Chakra is Archangel Michael. He is considered as the leader of all the Archangels. He is charge of protecting us physically, emotionally and spiritually. He also helps us in cutting chords which bind us to our past memories and people, thus making moving on easier. His Crystal affinity is Sugalite.
6. Third Eye
The Archangel associated with this Chakra is Archangel Gabriel. She helps us with creativity, communicating, guiding others and nurturing our inner self. Her Crystal affinity is Citrine.
7. Crown Chakra
The Archangel associated with this Chakra is Archangel Zadkiel. He helps us in gaining clarity, forgiving and new ideas. Also helps us in emotional healing. He with his flame can turn negative vibrations to positive vibrations. His Crystal affinity is Lapis Lazuli.
This method is very useful when we feel too restless to meditate; we can call upon the Archangels to balance our Chakras or also when we are healing someone else. If one wants to combine Archangel and the Crystals they might think, since different Archangels are associated with different Chakras and their affinity to the crystals does not match with the traditional crystals associated with our Chakras, it might create havoc in our body. But from my personal experience I can vouch that only thing that can happen to us is, our Chakras will get balanced much faster . There will be no adverse effect on our body; we will just have an extra spring in each step, making our life joyful.
