16 Little-Known Facts About Archangel Azrael – The Angel of Death
Archangel of Death and Rebirth
Archangel Azrael is a lesser-known, and yet none the less powerful Archangel being when compared to commonly known Archangels like Michael, Uriel, and Gabriel.
The name Azrael in Hebrew literally means “help of God” or “whom God helps” depending on the translation. But he’s less known because he doesn’t commonly work with humanity throughout the course of the day to day life.
Archangel Azrael is The Angel of Death
Rather, Archangel Azrael's primary Archangelic responsibility is assisting souls in making the transition from physical life to the spirit world after death. This takes the form of literally assisting the soul is detaching from the etheric and physical bodies, and then journeying through the seven planetary spheres to complete the life review, and prepare for the next levels of incarnation or experience in the higher realms of Spirit.
Azrael works to bring comfort to the dying and then works with them to gently transition from the physical body into the spirit at the time of crossing over. Often times those who are dying are mentally and emotionally fully in the astral and spiritual world at the moment their soul detaches from their physical body.
After death, or when the soul actually leaves the physical dimension, Azrael then guides souls through the 7 planetary spheres which are also sometimes called the 7 Heavenly Halls…
This journey through the spheres presents a soul with opportunities to deeply review the life they’ve just lived. This is a deep and powerful experience of reviewing your entire life.
There are many different types of spiritual beings who will join in this process to offer wisdom, support and guidance for souls in reviewing their life, facing past traumas (facing the pain and suffering a soul has caused others is typically the most traumatic to face). There is immense healing, reflection, and learning for a soul in reviewing and recovering from the journey of life. The journey out through the spheres is a journey of healing and review, and then the journey back towards the Earth plane is one of preparation, learning, and planning for whatever incarnation may be next.
Azrael also has a role in tracking souls after death and works with the Elohim (a higher rank of angelic being) to track and monitor souls who are both incarnating and leaving the Earth plane.
Azrael’s Work With The Grieving
Like all the Archangels, Azrael works with entire soul groups rather than individuals, and while his main work is assisting humanity at the level of the soul transitioning from the physical world into Spirit … He does occasionally work with humans within physical incarnation.
In these instances, Azrael may bring Universal Healing Energy, love and comfort to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. He also coordinates and assigns angels to step in and forward to assist those struggling to understand and cope with the death of a loved one. Archangel Azrael radiates great compassion and wisdom, holding a space of deep honor, love, and respect for those dealing with the grief surrounding death and the journey on a soul make after departing physical life.
Archangel Azrael is here for you and your family during the time of a loved one or a dear friend while they are dying, he will give you peace and love to help you through the grieving process. His presence seems to have a way of absorbing grief and emotional turmoil, so people can for a moment detach from the pain body, and amidst grief have beautiful experiences of presence and connection to Divine Love.
Azrael also assists and works with those who serve to prepare the dying while still alive (hospice workers, nurses, clergy, compassionate souls). There is an immense benefit in beginning the process of life review while living, and so Azrael compassionately holds the space and wisdom for this process.
On the other side of death, Azrael supports those who seek to counsel and support those assisting others through grief, bringing wisdom and a calm sense of knowing and understanding that all is well. He will also work to absorb pain energy from the grieving, to energetically protect those attempting to counsel and assist.
Archangel Azrael Supports Those Who Are Still Living
While living, Azrael can help you to see and understand that it is a thin line between life and death.
This is helpful in recognizing that loved ones are not truly “dead”… And rather after their death, their soul lives on, and they’re now simply journeying through other planes and dimensions. Seeing and recognizing this thin line between life and death can also help you to get motivated to make the most of the life experience you have now. To shift out of staying focused on lower level distractions, and to embrace the opportunity of life to grow, and develop spiritually each day.
Azrael reminds us that after death, we do not bring with us any of our physical possessions, or status that is built and accumulated as physical beings. What we do bring with us as the soul journeys out of the physical body beyond life is the development and growth of the soul. Azrael hence reminds us that soul growth is the main priority for souls to be in the physical, and getting focused on this while living beneath the veil of illusion in life has so many incredible benefits.
Soul growth comes in many forms and Archangel Azazel is ready and willing to assist those working through these important life lessons, helping to release and heal the pain of unforgiveness, guilt, anger, and regret, so that we may find peace, and grow and ascend through the process. He is also a huge supporter of spiritual practice and consciously seeking out spiritual development while living as a physical being.
Connecting With Loved Ones In Spirit
Additionally, Azrael can help those who are grieving the loss of loved ones to connect with their loved ones in Spirit or to align signs, and synchronicities bringing a validation that now beyond death, your loved one is still alive and well.
People often hope for signs and visitations from a deceased loved one too early (while they’re still occupied journeying through the life-review) … In these cases, Azrael will sometimes work with other angelic beings, including the guardian angels of those involved to line up the meaningful signs and synchronicities from deceased loved ones, like butterflies, pennies, flashes of light, and other meaningful synchronicities that bring a reminder and comfort of the thin line between the realms of spirit and the land of the living.
However, at certain points during the transition a soul makes between life, death, and rebirth, Azrael can actually help align visitations and experiences beyond the veil.
