Question: How Do I Recognize Archangel Raguel?

Archangel Raguel is known as the angel of justice and harmony. He works for God's will to be done among people, and also among his fellow angels and archangels. Raguel wants you to experience the best life possible -- the life God wants for you.

Here are some signs of Raguel's presence when he is nearby:


Help Bringing Justice to Unjust Situations

Since Raguel is very concerned about justice, he often delivers strength to people who are working to fight injustice. If you notice answers to your prayers about unjust situations -- whether in your own life or in the lives of other people -- Raguel may be at work around you, believers say. In her book Soul Angels, Jenny Smedley writes that Raguel "is said to dispense judgment and justice should the other angels not be able to agree on a fair course of action. Raguel is also the angel to pray to if you feel that no one else will listen and that you’re being treated unfairly, either at work or in the home."

New Ideas for Creating Order

If some new ideas for creating order in your life come into your mind, Raguel may be delivering them, say believers. Raguel is a leader within the group of angels known as principalities, writes Gustav Davidson in his book A Dictionary of Angels: Including the Fallen Angels. The principalities are famous for helping people create order in their lives, such as by inspiring them to practice spiritual disciplines on a regular basis. Principality angels such as Raguel also give people who are in charge of others (such as government leaders) wisdom to know how to best organize their programs.

Guidance for Repairing Relationships

Another sign of Raguel's presence in your life is receiving guidance about how to repair a broken or estranged relationship. Doreen Virtue writes in her book Archangels 101: How to Connect Closely with Archangels Michael, Raphael, Uriel, Gabriel and Others for Healing, Protection, and Guidance: "Archangel Raguel brings harmony to all relationships, including those of friendship, romance, family, and business. Sometimes he’ll instantly heal the relationship, and other times he’ll send intuitive guidance to you. You’ll recognize this guidance as repetitive gut feelings, thoughts, visions, or signs that lead you to take healthful action steps in your relationships."
