Although there are many angels, there are seven extremely powerful archangels – each with their own special quality and task to fulfill – who can assist us with our daily lives. They’re even thought to be ranked higher than guardian angels in the celestial realm, and were created to serve mankind and the universe. Each one is associated with a different coloured ray of light, and has its own healing power and frequency to help you. Joanne Brocus explains more…
