How to Summon Angels and Archangels for Help


How Angels Have Helped Me

Angels can change your life. The first time I heard anybody "talk" to angels was when my partner casually asked them to find her a parking space. I thought she was bonkers. Totally crazy. Away with the fairies.

How on earth were some imaginary winged creatures going to find us a parking space in London's rush hour traffic? "Nonsense!" I thought to myself.

Incredibly, they did. And they helped me calm a frantic horse, find a job, get to sleep one night, and even find a missing USB stick. Each archangel has certain areas of "expertise" such as healing, earning, communicating, giving birth, forgiving, seeing beauty, or helping children. Archangels also have hundreds of angels who work as their helpers to carry out tasks on earth with the people who need it.

We are able to call upon angels in our everyday lives to bring us what we desire. There are hundreds of angels and archangels who are willing and ready to help us. Simply call out and ask the angels to draw close around you. Ask them to bring you what you want.

Below are the best known archangels that people can summon when they need help and guidance in their lives.

Summoning angels is easy. They are always ready to come to our help whenever we need them.

  1. First of all, there must be a reason for you to be calling upon angels. Identify what it is. Perhaps you are upset and want to feel calm. Perhaps you are agitated. Perhaps you want healing, or maybe you need help concentrating while you're working on an exam.
  2. Select the best angel to help you. The list below includes some of the most well-known archangels but there are many more who work with them.
  3. Close your eyes if it's appropriate and take a deep breath. Relax your body and open your mind a little.
  4. Say the following: Archangel (insert name of angel here) come to me now and bring me (say what you want here).
  5. The angel will arrive almost instantaneously and bring you what you need.

Archangel Raphael

Raphael is the archangel of healers and healing who draws close to those who ask for him when they are in any kind of pain.

A host of almighty angels accompanies Raphael as he surrounds the sick and needy in the green light of his halo. It’s even possible to see emerald sparks fly when he’s close.

Raphael will continue working with us to help open our hearts and minds to the healing power of the universe and spirit.

Archangel Michael

Michael is the leader of all angels and his main purpose is to rid the earth and its people of all toxins associated with fear.

The humans he enlists and works with are called ”lightworkers” and Michael encourages them to perform healing for the good of the world.

Michael carries a dazzling sword and he also has an incredible knack for fixing electrical goods such as computers and phones.

Archangel Gabriel

Gabriel is said to have brought Jesus of Nazareth to Mary and she now guides hopeful parents through conception and pregnancy or adoption.

Her second role is as a messenger angel and she can help people who have jobs in art or communication express themselves.

Gabriel is known as a very powerful and strong archangel and when she is called upon, she will push the person into action.

Archangel Jophiel

Jophiel is the archangel of art and beauty who helps us think positive thoughts and see the wonder in the world around us.

Scroll to Continue

This archangel helps us slow down from the hectic pace of life and pay attention to creating beauty in our homes and relationships.

People say that it’s very pleasant to be around archangel Jophiel because she has a positive and uplifting energy like that of a best friend.

Archangel Metatron

Metatron is the youngest of the archangels as he is said to be one of only two angels who were alive at the same time as humans.

This helps him to act as a messenger between earth and heaven and he works tirelessly to help us understand the angel realms.

Metatron has a fiery energy that is focused like a laser beam and he helps troubled children—especially those with spiritual gifts.

Helna on October 07, 2020:

Angels are ministering spirits. They are sent by God to protect you as per Psalms 91.

Michaela on October 05, 2020:

Whoever you all think you're summoning is NOT an angel. Angels are not summoned by people, though God sends them to you. Whether you're religious or not this is a warning.

thank you for sharing this information about angels! :)

Aaron B Moreno on May 07, 2020:


I want to respond to your comments that you posted in regards to classifying the call t angel.

You informed the person not to call it a spell. And you are ABSOLUTELY CORRECT.

I want to Thank you and tell you to remain as you are because you will do and become greater than even you will know. You are a Earth Angel my friend. Look up Earth Angels and discover your place to be and become.

And yes people, do not classify using a prayer as magic.

May God Bless you all.

nick on May 06, 2020:

what if you want to practice magic for good, to help people in need, is that bad? please, someone, tell me

josh on May 03, 2020:

i called archangel raphael because i had blood dripping of my head i did all the thing and suddenly the cut on head was closed i highly recomend it

bistrobillyboy on April 30, 2020:

Pardon my forthright manner here... but a person in these comments, Tomiesha, said she was "creeped out" because when she "chanted this spell" it worked because there was a knock on her door. If she's reading this: "miss, summoning angels is NOT spell casting! It is called, praying! Spell casting is for the wicked. Please, I implore you, do NOT call summoning angels or speaking to the Divine, spell casting or chanting. Do not refer to it in any magical way. Doing this will invite dark entities into your life and lead you down a dark path indeed. User LW who posts here, will be proven right in your case, if you continue to use that terminology in regards to speaking to or communicating with, God, angles or the divine in general. God Bless..and tread carefully when speaking about such things.

How do i summon my angel to acompany me wile i summon the angel of death, for my 91 year old friend is at her end and ready to pass on

LW on March 21, 2020:

Last comments:

The part which most confuses people is that demonic beings masquarade as very pure, good and perfect beings who only love and want to help.

Demonic beings even use names of beings which we saw in history as good beings. So it is no surprise that they co-opt the names of angels from the Bible and Judeo-Christian traditions, to put many people at ease and to lead them on.

Others are of course much more adventurous and will believe any being, according to their own standard - which demons easily use to make one believe that the universe works according to one's own beliefs. Of course all of this will be taught in a friendly, peaceful, enlightened way, that to most people seems utterly trustful. Most people would not say that the information such beings give can possible come from evil beings who hate humankind and work every day to destroy countless souls. But that is the actual truth.

Deception comes through the path that is outside of God's law.

LW on March 21, 2020:

Comment part 3:

Unfortunately I had to find out the (very) hard way that the Bible is true. I would not come to salvation in Christ until He called me, because the various teachings of the new age, the occult, the Eastern religions, paganism, gnosticism all intersect, mentally program the mind and blind the individual. They can also be heard when one starts to directly contact higher dimensional beings (which people often mistakenly assume are angelic and good).

The other deception is that people fall for the trap of thinking that they have the power to control negative beings, with their own power. That is an illusion, mean to lead people on, into the deception - that leads to death.

Unfortunately few people hear or listen, because the real truth is hard and heavy for them, they prefer very easy going and light information that does not warn them. Many do not take things seriously enough, and have been deceived from the beginning.

LW on March 21, 2020:

Comment part 2:

In the end, you are defending demonic ideas, teachings, practices, ways of life, worldviews, socio-cultural themes which you never would have supported in the beginning, and would have see them for the evil that they are. But because of that inner change inside of you, you believe that you have been enlightened by the so called angelic knowledge and their presence in your life. And so what you once knew to be evil, you perceive as good and you promote it to others. Because you can no longer differentiate between true good or evil. And that is because you followed and asked for angels first, instead of reaching out to God, your Creator first. That is the way deception happens on this world, all the time. And has done so throughout human history. Unfortunately.

The only safe way to interact with the divine is to go through Jesus Christ, or to pray to the Father Creator directly, as the Bible teaches.

LW on March 21, 2020:

Calling on any kind of angels or beings is a new age trap. I used to do this, A LOT, and basically after a while, the type of information you get from these beings, identifying themselves as angels, is demonic and against humankind. Whether the good angels ever showed up in the first place is questionable, but possible. However the fact that demons masquerading as angels showed up A LOT, is undeniable.

Of course they sell their information under the label of "self-empowerment and self-enlightenment", to get you to believe that following their spiritual teachings is the best choice you can make, because their information is supposedly the best available on the planet.

But what ends up happening in reality is that you end up corrupting yourself. As you do, you do not realize what is happening to you and that you are ever more corrupted.

The perfect trap.

Thank you for the information, I'm currently writing a book on Angels and the like and was wondering if you had any information on the terminology used when summoning loa? thank you either way

Andrew Lee Coleman on February 23, 2020:

1982 in blackstone Va. an angel touched me in on my back and said moved your tent I was in the army reserve, the second I was pushed harder I said leave me alone you've been bothering me since I was 6 or 7, l laided back down the third time my spirit guide pushed real hard and in a deep voice said "MOVE YOUR TENT" so I did the next morning I went to get chow it was still dark I thought I was just stepping in rain but it was blood and guts to, when it got light there was a tank right where my tent was and about 9 or 10 or more of my reserve buddies smashed in the mud, some sargent gave a philly boy some moonshine( home made liquor ) he got in the tank ran them over in their sleep.I been listen to Metatron the archangel every since.Raphael the archangel of healing been kind to me twice I had cancer doctors said its to far gone I'm dying, that was 21 years ago.Like in 1982 all my vision and dreams come at 2: 30 in the morning.Years ago I told my mom a cousin just died in Canton Ms.then the phone rung and guest what.One thing about this gift it payed my bills and mom before left us in sept.

Tomiesha on February 15, 2020:

I am actually kinda creeped out right now. Pretty sure it worked. I chanted the spell, then I heard at knock at my front door right after. The angel must be here to find me a cure. I let the angel in even though nothing was there. Please believe in this, angels are real. They are listening. Also, make sure you chant your chant loud enough for a angel to hear and near a mirror for better communication. Make sure you give your archangel permission for what you a seeking. I hope you can reach your archangel as quick as I did.

Meline on February 06, 2020:

I think angels are real

Chingthang on February 02, 2020:

In my dream,i have some unknown message to summon demon or angel ...very confusing

Tangshan.p on January 16, 2020:

I did every thing right but it didn't work

Will.H on January 12, 2020:

Hi im not sure why this doesnt work because i cant see an angel nor feel enlightened after the steps and am feeling lost. Starting to lose faith in the holy one.

Jessica H. on January 05, 2020:

I've been scared of calling spirits since I was a small girl, and it all started about 5 years ago, a few weeks after my 7th birthday. I was sleeping in my sisters room and I woke up in the middle of the night to hear creaking floorboards. I woke up my sister and climbed onto her bed when she (since she has the gift to see evil or lost spirits) saw a black figure in the hallway. That's when I woke up my younger brother, who was 5 at the time, and made him go onto my sisters bed with me. I looked out into the hallway and saw my hoodie fly across the doorway and screamed for my parents, who ran in to see me crying, huddled up to my startled sister and terrified brother. I slept with my parents that night and have been scared of calling spirits ever since. I do sometimes see my passed relatives, but only in times of great measure or when I need comfort. Sorry if I bothered y'all by makin' you read this, I just needed to get this off of my mind,

AnthonyT on January 05, 2020:

Angels are ministering spirit,don't pray to them pray to God,don't idolise an angel,Angels are real and exist but always reach out to them in the name of Jesus and be born from Tony

Collin on December 29, 2019:

Why hasn’t my calling to the angel worked, please answer this if you know the answer here’s my snap soop66790

Godwin Onuegbu Okafor on December 26, 2019:

What an insight in the studies of angels. This is incredible and want to study more please. Thanks

Kitten on December 22, 2019:

I don't know if it worked or not. I tried reaching out to Metatron and there was silence. My house is never that quiet. Then i felt a tingling sensation on my arms that made its way onto my exposed back. Right now the back of my neck also feels really cold which is strange because my neck is the warmest part of my body. I've been questioning my faith for a while now because of living standards but currently I just can't explain for anything right now.

Kemone on December 21, 2019:

I dont believe that we must call upon angels yes they are ministering angels to God and his son Christ Jesus. I remember when i was in great danger and i call upon christ he could send his angels, but he come on my window i saw his face my whole body transform he wasn't white or black, he looks like the jews this ruby clour my body felt different only thing i could say, i welcome your presence lord, so we must call up christ for help,help comes from Christ and yes he will do the same for you dont open up this avenue for spirits.psalms 91-11 Christ Jesus will send his angels charge over us.Meaning to protect us he will send angels ,no where in his words angel act without God sending them so no needs to call. On angels what if you were in danger like i was and christ know the danger before i call him and he comes all i say i believe in you Jesus even through am going through the valley of the shadow of death i know you will come through and their he was he comforts me and remove death from my door. The enemies come to kill steal and distroy but Christ come to give everlasting life. Choose Jesus my brothers and sister their is no situation,nothing to hard or too great that Christ cant come through for those who trust in him. Not in angels but in Christ Jesus.i've been through so much danger sadness distress but i can say i will go through it all because Christ Jesus is here with me.

Nagendra Kumar from RAWANG on October 29, 2019:

Is summoning angels Biblical? Jesus said He is The Way, The Truth and The Life.

Alex on October 09, 2019:

I did it and I don’t know if it worked because right after I did I heard ringing and bells, did it work?

PERCE-NEIGE on October 03, 2019:

You don't have to "summon" angels as if they were demons. Only talk to them with your heart, it's simple.

Mhyad Mutasim on October 01, 2019:

Its hard to do that but let me try

Anonymous on September 25, 2019:

Only reason why we have reached the year 2019 is the work of all the saints,Angels and the lord. Continue your faith in the teachings of the Catholic Church and your own heaven on earth will continue. 3. 3. 3. This is the sign they hear you.

Zachry on August 17, 2019:

Can you ask an angel to help a family member? Or even a friend?

Sarmad Rehman from Attock City,Pakistan on July 19, 2019:

Yeah its a specific philosophy enveloping a very short area of meditators and philosophers.

HI on July 08, 2019:

Yeah Michael is a great angel he got rid of all my fears thanks Michael!!!!!

Amy Harrison on June 02, 2019:

You have to really be open minded for it to work for those of you who call BS on this subject. You MUST believe in what you are doing. We are capable of so much more than what we, as humans do. You have to clear your mind, no thoughts, just white noise, and you can do it. Meditation before hand really aids in accomplishing this. We can do (almost) anything we set our minds to, as far as summoning angels or lost loved ones. Your guardian angel is around you always. All you have to do is ask, from a pure belief of them, and they WILL help or guide you to what it is you want or need. Our minds are have so much more power than most people believe. Nicola Tesla is a great example of the possibilities of the human mind. We have all the tools we need. The main ones are faith in yourself and an open mind. A clear mind. Most importantly, the belief that you can and will achieve it. Any doubts at all will most definitely prevent you from this achievement. Belief in yourself is very important, in any aspect of your life. If you believe you can do it... you will!!

Lily Dudley on May 24, 2019:

Brad on February 11, 2019:

We have been at war for one hundred years, and millions of people died in these wars. Don't you think if your article was true, they would have tried to summon the angels before being killed?
