Question: How Do I Recognize Archangel Raziel?

Archangel Raziel is known as the angel of mysteries because God reveals holy secrets to him, believers say. If Raziel visits you, he likely has some new spiritual insights or creative ideas to deliver to you.

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


Extrasensory Perception

One of the key signs of Raziel's presence is an increased ability to perceive information outside of your physical senses. Since Raziel delights in revealing the universe's mysteries to people, you may notice that your extrasensory perception grows stronger when Raziel visits you, say believers.

In their book The Angels of Atlantis: Twelve Mighty Forces to Transform Your Life Forever, Stewart Pearce and Richard Crookes write: "When we bring Raziel into our lives through gentle praise and petition, when we are present to the magical sensitivity of this angel, we also begin to feel the power of the mysteries seeping through us. They quicken our lives, creating extra–sensory sensitivity, and a revivification of our psychic gifts. Thereby, telepathy, remote viewing, awareness of the elemental forms of life, observation of the air and land contours created by the key lines of the planetary matrix, and awareness of the melding nature of the space-time continuum begin to occur."

Author Doreen Virtue writes in her book Angels 101: An Introduction to Connecting, Working, and Healing with the Angels that Raziel "heals spiritual and psychic blocks and helps us with dream interpretations and past life memories."

Deeper Faith

Raziel may be nearby if you experience a deepening of your faith, believers say. Pearce and Crookes write about Raziel in The Angels of Atlantis: "This wonderful angel quells all doubt, for Raziel is enraptured by the very font of God's creation, and asks us to pledge that all experience be derived from belief in the sacred mysteries. This ensures God consciousness within us, for Raziel oversees the secret chamber of our heart, knowing that when we choose to enter the magic of life, the veils of illusion are parted, and what is revealed defies the rational mind ...".

Greater Creativity

A sudden surge of creativity may be a sign that Raziel is inspiring you, say believers. In his book Praying with the Angels, Richard Webster writes: "You should contact Raziel whenever you need answers to imponderable questions. Raziel particularly enjoys helping original thinkers develop their ideas."

Susan Gregg writes in her book Encyclopedia of Angels, Spirit Guides and Ascended Masters: A Guide to 200 Celestial Beings to Help, Heal, and Assist You in Everyday Life that "Raziel will help you come up with great ideas. Raziel is the patron of secret wisdom and divine knowledge, and the guardian of originality and pure thought."

Rainbow Light

You may see rainbow light appear nearby when Raziel visits you, because his electromagnetic energy corresponds to the rainbow frequency on angel light rays. Virtue says in Angels 101 that Raziel has a rainbow-colored aura, and Gregg says in Encyclopedia of Angels, Spirit Guides and Ascended Masters that Raziel's whole presence is a colorful one: "A beautiful yellow aura emanates from his tall form. He has large, light blue wings, and wears a robe of a magical gray material that looks like swirling liquid."
