Archangel Uriel

Apart from fairies and children, Marie loves the stories and images of angels, who, she believes, are companions assigned to aid us.

"God is my Light."

"And the angel that was sent unto me, whose name was Uriel . . ." 2 Esdras 4:1

An Invocation

Glory to God and his deeds,
for everything is good and wonderful.
Holy Archangel Uriel,
protect and look after rivers,
their waters we drink . . .

Author’s note: Rivers are of the water element and correspond to the body's circulatory system and the emotions. Archangel Uriel helps maintain not only cleanliness of these “waters,” but also an even, peaceful, and orderly flow.


In my spiritual studies covering 28 years and more, I had, at one point, never heard of Archangel Uriel. I had been raised Catholic, visited a yoga ashram, read literature by the Theosophical Society and Mary Baker Eddy (Founder of Christian Science), and joined the Keepers of the Flame Fraternity in 1985. It wasn’t until my exposure to the Keepers of the Flame that I learned of Archangel Uriel.

According to the teachings, Uriel primarily guides ministration and service, which doesn’t just mean Holy Orders, but includes volunteer service organizations, such as the Peace Corps, Volunteers of America, The Red Cross, The Salvation Army, and simple acts of kindness to one another.

In regards to the physical body, the solar plexus channels this “sixth ray.” On an energy level, the solar plexus is often referred to as the solar chakra. The primary purpose of the chakra is to maintain a vibration of peace. Often when anyone has to perform in front of an audience, the feeling of “butterflies in the stomach” characterizes the loss of peace due to stage fright.

My Personal Experience

Archangel Uriel is personally meaningful because I had been meditating on each of the seven rays (a different one for each day of the week) until recently when I decided to try to focus primarily on one of them.

I had a near death experience in December 2011 when I was hospitalized for dehydration and weight loss. Upon release, I was placed in a group home sponsored by a mental health organization through the court system. I was dissatisfied with my placement. Rather than blame the people around me, I examined myself and realized that the group home was due to my lack of taking responsibility for my life and remembered that “faith without works is dead.” So, I decided to base the next phase of my life in ministration and service by doing volunteer work. Condensing children’s stories for a library program sponsored by the Kiwanis Club, reading to the elderly in the local nursing home through the county’s literary council, and singing in the church choir supplemented weekly house cleaning and yard work. I had already been quilting and giving my quilts to anyone who wanted one.

Uriel and His Ministering Angels Tend Jesus

After fasting in the desert forty days and forty nights, Jesus rebuke's Satan's temptations and is ministered by angels.

So Satan fell; and straight a fiery globe

Of Angels on full sail of wing flew nigh,

Who on their plumy vans received Him soft

From his uneasy station, and upbore,

As on a floating couch, through the blithe air;

Then, in a flowery valley, set him down

On a green bank, and set before him spread

A table of celestial food, divine

Ambrosial fruits fetched from the Tree of Life,

And from the Fount of Life ambrosial drink,

That soon refreshed him wearied, and repaired

What hunger, if aught hunger, had impaired,

Or thirst; and, as he fed, Angelic quires

Sung heavenly anthems of his victory

Over temptation and the Tempter proud:—

--Milton, Paradise Regained (Book 4, Lines 581-585)

Archangel Uriel and his divine compliment Archeia Aurora serve on God’s sixth ray (purple flecked with gold) which is focused on Thursday. Their physical focus is in the Tatra Mountains, south of Cracow (Krakow), Poland.

Instrumental in Jesus' Resurrection

Was Jesus tended to in the tomb? Who rolled away the stone?

While these details not mentioned in the Bible, it is clear that an angel was there--a ministering angel, the role of Archangel Uriel!

So, Archangel Uriel is my guide. I can think of no greater goal at this point of my life than to serve in a mission of world peace, which both Jesus and Archangel Uriel espouse. But, the carnal mind is tricky, and I have to constantly remind myself what is important. Refraining from self guilt and expressing forgiveness are keys to the gifts of grace and peace. And so, now I have Archangel Uriel to assist as I conquer fear and, ultimately, death itself.

      Your sharing has touched me deeply. I have been questioning where I spend my time and why. You confirmed for me that we must seek to serve. I have been considering more volunteer work and you have motivated me to pursue that.

      I pray that your health remains strong. So glad to have you here with us and very glad you stopped by and I was able to connect with you. There are angels on earth - you are one of them. Keep up the angelic service - you have touched me and many others.

      Actually, the Tatra Mountains form the border of Poland and Czechoslovakia, my maternal grandmother's homeland. So, I have a greater affinity for this focus than I had realized.

      I view my writing as a service to God, Rodric, so I don't worry about the public--whatever I can share that uplifts and encourages, I will. Skeptics can't hurt me when I have a protection of Light around me. --Blessings!

      Marie, this is a sacred story for you to share so publicly. I am glad that you were able to through your experience and gain a testimony of service. It is the way we server our Lord to serve one another, for when we are in the service of our fellow men, we are only in the service of our God.

      I also appreciate the information about the angel Uriel. I did not know about him but am glad I have a reference point for the information.

      Hello Marie and thank you so much for sharing your experience and knowledge. Any relationship with an archangel is humbling and meaning is both generalized and specific, therefore a bow as Sir Sremmus, a character of stories I share.

      Michael and Rafael are known of me, while Uriel I know of, yet not as much. I learned first by weekday attributes, so maybe that is why. Selaphiel's influence is prominent almost being a week length and not a day. The ministry of Uriel is shortened by some say, yet symbolism is much more powerful. A fine choice especially as an author.

      Thank you for sharing while having great understanding with the significance sought reading and good works with the library. They connect for sure.

      Thank you, Rayne. Yes, I have read that Archangel Uriel (masculine) and Archeia Aurora (feminine) also administer justice and have many other attributes. I chose to focus on what I understand to be the primary function of this archangel. The divine compliment of St. Germain, Portia, also administers justice on the seventh ray. Archangel Zadkiel serves the seventh ray, according to the system of teachings I study. I'm so blessed to have been introduced to the archangels.
