As the New Year begins, many of us are attempting to achieve new goals or perhaps turn over a new leaf. The Archangel Uriel, the angel of transformation and tranquility, can aide you in your journey to transformation.
Uriel is willing to give you peace and love anytime you need it. Because of this, Uriel is arguably the most accessible of the archangels, bringing harmony and peace of mind to even the most difficult types of situations. You will find it highly beneficial to establish and maintain a relationship with Uriel.
Circle of Protection
Prior to working with any exercises to communicate with Uriel, you will need to establish a circle of protection around yourself.
Sit or stand in the center of the area you will be working in. If you have a compass with you, or have some idea as to where the four main directions lie, face north (this is because north is Uriel’s direction). Take several slow, deep breaths, each time inhaling as much air as possible. Hold the breath for a few seconds before exhaling slowly. Imagine that each breath of air is filling you with protective energy.
After several deep breaths, walk around your chair in a clockwise direction, saying out loud, "Thank you, Uriel, for giving me the opportunity to call on you. I am establishing this circle of protection so that nothing but good can enter." The circle can be as large or as small as you wish. You need to mark the circle with your steps only once, as this is sufficient to provide all the protection you may need. However, I know many people who like to walk around it several times.
Once the circle has been created, you can do whatever you wish inside it, confident that you are protected and safe. If you know where the four cardinal directions are, you might like to acknowledge and thank the archangels of each direction: Raphael (east), Michael (south), Gabriel (west), and Uriel (north).
How to Contact Uriel with Music
Uriel has a deep love of music, and will always be near you when you are totally immersed in your favorite music. Uriel will be close no matter what sort of music you like listening to, be it classical, rock, hip-hop, country, new age, or anything else. Consequently, you can gain an extra benefit by communicating with Uriel while listening to music.
Choose some of your best-loved music, and play it quietly while sitting in a comfortable chair. Close your eyes and allow yourself to become totally immersed in the music. If the music is soft and gentle, you will soon find yourself completely relaxed. If the music is more vigorous and up-tempo, you will become partially relaxed and at the same time, mentally stimulated. Both of these states are good for making contact with Uriel.
Remain focused on the music for as long as you wish. When you are ready, ask Uriel to come closer. You might choose to say this out loud, or you may simply think it. You will notice that the music fades into the background because you are now more interested in communicating with Uriel.
If Uriel does not come into your conscious awareness right away, keep suggesting that he come closer and make himself known to you. Remain confident and positive that he will come. In time, you realize that he is there with you, and may well have been beside you for some time. You might experience a slight change in the temperature of the room, or perhaps a sense of knowing that he is beside you. He may say something to you. You will either hear what he says, or sense it in your mind.
Once you have made contact, tell Uriel why you are communicating with him at this time. Tell him your hopes and dreams. Ask for advice, comfort, or insight. Spend as much time as you wish communicating with Uriel. When the conversation is over, thank him for his time and insights, say goodbye, and return to the music for a few minutes before getting up.
