Dear Angel Friends,
Archangel Uriel is the governing angel for the fire element. The element of fire is associated with all things needing action. Action may be defined as anything that requires movement. This movement can be as large as life changes or as small as taking a walk. So anytime you are making change, making a decision to do something, or starting something new such as a new project, a new job, relationship, or exercise program, call upon Archangel Uriel.
There are tools available that can help us with our angel work. One of the helpful tools for working with Uriel and his fire element, is the candle. Candles of different colors produce different outcomes. For example, if you are looking for a new job, need more money, need a new place to live, you would work with Uriel and a red candle because red is associated with the Root Chakra and balance in this Chakra is needed for all measures of living in this physical world. If however, you just broke up with your boyfriend/girlfriend, your heart is aching and you can’t focus on anything, the action you need is emotional in nature to help you calm down, focus, and move forward. For this purpose, you would work with Uriel and a green candle, as green relates to the Heart Chakra. Now there are other angels that can work alongside Uriel who govern the particular chakras (such as Camael for the root and Haniel for the heart), but for the purpose of this writing – to introduce you to Uriel’s fire element through candle work, we are looking only at candle colors and their healing associations and how Uriel can help. You may invoke Uriel by lighting candles of these colors for following purposes.
• Light a Red Candle: for help with anything relating to your physical environment
• Light an Orange Candle: for help with anything relating to expressing your creativity
• Light a Yellow Candle: for help with anything relating to your personal power and sense of “self”
• Light a Green Candle: for help with anything relating to mending a broken heart
• Light a Pink Candle: for help with anything relating to giving or receiving love
• Light a Light Blue Candle: for help with anything relating to communicating, speaking up and using your “voice”
• Light an Indigo Blue Candle: for help with anything related to your inner sight or intuition
• Light a Violet Candle: for help with anything relating to your spiritual journey
• Light a Brown Candle: for help with anything relating to nature
• Light a Black Candle: for help with anything relating to needing strength or protection
• Light a White Candle: for help with any of the above areas where you do not have the associated color candle. Use your intention for that particular purpose while invoking Uriel.
Here is an example of invoking Uriel for the purposes of helping to ignite your creative juices. As you light an orange candle say:
“Uriel, Uriel, Uriel, please be with me now and through the power of your fire element, help me to open to the creativity I know lies within me. Through proper action, help me to set aside time on a regular basis to work on my (painting, craft, dancing, music, etc.) so that I may accomplish my creative goals.”
Now remain gazing into the center of the candle flame and allow yourself to receive Uriel’s messages and/or be inspired. You may also gaze until your eyes gently close. When you feel the time is right, thank Uriel and extinguish the candle.
For increased power, write your intention on a small piece of paper and place it underneath the candle holder just prior to beginning your invocation.
Of course, it goes without saying that your candle is handled with care, placed in a sturdy holder, on a steady table or alter, and extinguished properly.
Enjoy working with Uriel and his candle colors!
In Love, Light, and Angel Blessings,
