You may have heard me mention on the WwA videos that Archangel Gabriel is known as the ‘Writing Archangel’. Today we’ll explore what that means.
Gabriel, whose name means “God is my strength”, is known for being the archangel who told Elizabeth and Mary of the impending births of their sons, John the Baptist, and Jesus Christ (respectively). She also dictated the Koran, the spiritual text of Islam, to Mohammed. Because of this, Gabriel has come to be known as ’The Messenger’, specializing in helping parents, and those in the fields of communications. It’s the latter that we’ll focus on, for today.
Whether you’re a writer, journalist, blogger, or are involved in television and radio work, Gabriel oversees your ‘divisions’. She’s a talented wordsmith and orator, who is beyond keen to share her skills, and help raise your writing/creative standards. But (and this is a biggie) she’ll expect your compliance when she’s given you a direction to take. Don’t think you’re going into this partnership to call the shots.
Gabriel has affectionately been called a ’nudging angel’ by more than a few people. That is because, come hell or high water, once you ask Gabriel to help you accomplish a task, she’ll get you there. Books jumping out at you, computers failing (or, rather, irresistable web pages freezing, halting slacking in its tracks), repetitive signs, ’let me think on it’ naps being disturbed to the point where you HAVE TO get up and write – these are a small sample of the arsenal of techniques Gabriel will use to get your butt in the chair, and working. That’s not to say she’s a slave driver. On the contrary. Gabriel will work diligently with you to open gaps in your schedule, free up time you never dreamed you could have, and find opportunities to progress that you’d either ignored, or missed, before. But while she’ll help you see these opportunities, YOU have to be willing to take them.
Gabriel also shows up in your life when you start asking the ‘big questions’ – the ‘why am I here’ and ‘what the heck am I supposed to be doing while I’m here?’ types of questions. Seeing as this stage of life frequently coincides with a person reaching for their pen, or a keyboard, don’t be surprised if, while taking this great writing adventure, Gabriel also offers guidance and moral support in aspects of spiritual development and discernment, as well as clarifying your life purpose.
Gabriel is a joy to work with, as I can personally attest to. Her humor is abundant, as is her patience. When she pushes you, it’s always with love, and your best interests at heart. She’s also not the type to say ‘I told you so’ when you go off and do your own thing, instead of following her pointed guidance. She is, though, like that one friend who refuses to ‘play nice’ when it comes to your whining – she’ll tell you straight what the problem is, and how you need to fix it (some of the hardest things to hear for us stubborn types! Gah!). I’ve had some of my biggest breakthroughs following her guidance, even when it sounded ‘ridiculous’ or ‘impossible’ to me. I know you will, too.
Three books I highly recommend you look into, in order to help develop a solid working relationship with Gabriel are:
* How to hear your angels - Doreen Virtue
* Archangels and Ascended Masters – Doreen Virtue
* Azrael loves chocolate, Michael’s a jock - Chantel Lysette (Chantel refers to Gabriel as a ‘he’, which is perfectly acceptable. The angels and archangels have no true sex, and are happy to manifest as either male or female, in accordance with your comfort levels, and what you need at that point in your life. ((Yes, even Michael. Trust me. )) )
Contacting Gabriel, and indeed any of the Archangels, is simple – think or speak their names, with a clear intention to connect with them, and they will be beside you. It’s just that simple.
Wishing you all the very best in your writing endeavours. Have a great day!
