Are you grieving the loss of someone?
Grief can be so consuming and devastating. And it is really difficult to overcome. While some are able to move on easily, many have suffered from it for years.
It’s the kind of suffering that leaves a raw pain in your heart robbing you of happiness.
If you’re experiencing grief, it is okay to reach out and ask for help.
And there’s no other being who can understand you better and be able to heal you than our ever-reliable Archangel Azrael.
Among the archangels, Archangel Azrael is the most often misunderstood because he is called the Angel of Death or the Angel of Destruction and Renewal.
But that’s not all there is for Archangel Azrael.
Angels can be our source of joy, comfort, and inspiration.
They act as a bridge between the physical world and the spiritual plane. They bring us incredible messages, helping and guiding us through our chosen path to living our best life possible.
And our dear Archangel Azrael is mainly known for his role in helping departed souls to make the difficult transition from the physical world to the spiritual world. He also provides comfort and healing to those who are left behind.
He also makes contact with us even before the time of our death, in most cases years before it, to send us messages of love and compassion.
The image we know of Archangel Azrael as the angel of death is not accurate at all. He is not the grim reaper that we are scared to face as he is the most compassionate being there is for the departed souls and their loved ones.
He surrounds the dying and the grieving soul with comforting and healing energy. That is more like Archangel Azrael.
There is no need for us to fear him as there is more to him than what we usually know about him.
Who is Archangel Azrael?
Archangel Azrael’s name is of Hebrew origin which means “Whom God helps”. He is the angel that comforts the grieving.
This powerful angel of God may be the most misunderstood of all.
Archangel Azrael does not bring death to your door as some people believed.
Instead, this angel of light and love has been given a very important role in assisting souls to make a smooth transition from this world to the afterlife. With his compassion and healing energy, he will guide anyone throughout the death process.
When you call upon him, you will receive his blessings, miraculous love, and comfort at the time of your death as well as for anyone who’s grieving.
You can also call upon him for someone you have just lost, so Archangel Azrael can assist them in the next life. And he will act as a bridge between this world and the next.
Learning about his role will help us understand this angel more, especially his role concerning death. We will discover that he is someone that we should never fear.
We will also discover the different aspects of his role in keeping the universe in motion as well as on the individual level.
His role is very important to maintain peace and harmony through all dimensions.
Archangel Azrael as The Angel of Grief
Grief can be so consuming that you might be needing help to overcome it.
You don’t have to be alone dealing with loss as you can move through grief with Archangel Azrael.
For most of us, grief is one of the most difficult emotions to process. It can be the most challenging and daunting experience we will ever have in our life.
Letting go and moving on seems to be so hard, and it often feels impossible to go through the loss of someone we dearly love whether through death or other ways of separation such as divorce, breakup, or relocation.
Just the thought of it can cause us to feel uneasy and stressed.
Grief often results from our refusal to accept change. It happens because we become emotionally and spiritually attached to another human being, state, or things that it becomes difficult to transition with even just a small change.
Losing someone or something important feels extremely sad and difficult to accept when the person or thing is completely gone from our daily life in the way that we’re used to experiencing them and realizing that it is indeed forever.
This causes us to grieve, making our hearts feel heavy and extremely sad with the loss.
When we are in a state of grief, we go through different stages ranging in intensity.
The grief process can be broken down into seven stages namely,
Shock. It is the stage when the person hearing the bad news is experiencing helplessness and paralysis, unable to react or do anything.
Denial. It is when the person experiencing the loss tries to avoid the situation.
Anger. It happens when the person has outbursts or even in-bursts of buried emotions.
Bargaining. It is when the person will seek a way out of the unwanted situation.
Depression. It happens when the situation and its emotional weight hampers the person experiencing the loss from freely living their life.
Testing. It is when the person starts to look for solutions to come out of the grief.
Acceptance. It happens when the person finally decides to accept the truth and explore options, create new plans and start moving on.
Archangel Azrael’s presence brings relief, healing, and comfort as he assists both the dying, as well as the people connected to them, to help them throughout the process.
Although it is believed in the past that he mainly works with the transitioning of souls from this life to the afterlife, you can call upon him for universal healing energy, comfort, and love when mourning for the loss of someone or something.
He is full of wisdom and empathy as he comforts those who grieve. He even works to absorb all the pain to lighten the weary heart of those who mourn. His wisdom shines through as he shows the mourners how to accept their new reality gently and lovingly.
Besides all the help that he extends to the dying and their loved ones, he also guides the professionals who are involved with the dying as they prepare their departures such as nurses, clergy, and hospice workers.
He has great compassion and empathy for everyone involved and sends them all healing as they move on with their lives.
Archangel Azrael as The Angel of Death
Archangel Azrael may appear in many different forms because of many interpretations across cultures.
For one, his being an angel of death may have other versions.
He is often perceived as the grim reaper. A being whom we often imagine as somehow responsible for Death, as if their presence alone can prompt death to happen. Although we know that death is not the end, we often fear it.
And instead of fearing him, we should find comfort that he will be there to guide us.
Without Archangel Azrael guiding them, departed souls will get lost in the void between life and death. God has a very important reason why he gave this role to Archangel Azrael.
Archangel Azrael and the Life Review Process
Archangel Azrael’s function also includes the initiation of the spontaneous life-review process that we all go through at the time of death. It is a natural process that’s connected to our passing.
But we can experience this life review process even before we die with the help of Archangel Azrael.
We often think of this process as simply a review of your life passing before your eyes at the moment of death.
But there is more to it than what we think it is. The moments before being born in the human form, your soul has set out specific goals that it wants to achieve in this lifetime called your Sacred Contract.
This Sacred Contract is recorded in the Book of Life or the Akashic Records.
At the time of death, Archangel Azrael brings your soul before the divine and you go through a timeless process in which the life you lived is reviewed. The life review is viewed in the eyes of the divine’s unconditional love and not in a critical or judgmental way.
Through this process, all of your past life’s questions are being answered which will help you begin to see and decide on the conditions and challenges of your rebirth and the next lifetime.
How can you benefit from the Life Review in This Life?
You may call upon Archangel Azrael in this life while still alive to help you take in fully the many lessons from this current existence.
You need to raise your vibration and allow Azrael to help you access the Akashic Records where your Sacred Contract is kept and where the details of your Life review are stored.
If you believe in reincarnation, past and future lives, you can also ask help from Archangel Azrael for information about your previous existence.
He can help you gain knowledge of your previous lifetimes through this same life review process.
Connecting With Archangel Azrael
Our dear Archangel Azrael is also a messenger of God’s love like every other angel. And so, you can connect with him for assistance anytime that you need help.
You can call upon him for assistance in many different reasons such as comforting the dying, providing comfort to the grieving, asking for assistance for a loved one or a friend who just passed on and transitioning to the spiritual world, providing support to someone grieving over a loss of a loved one or helping anyone involved in any of these kinds of situations.
Whatever reason you have for calling Archangel Azrael, it is important to clear your mind, heart, and soul first as you invoke his presence. So, you will easily recognize his presence and connect with him.
