Who Is Archangel Gabriel?
Archangel Gabriel is one of the few angels mentioned in the Bible by name. She is also mentioned in the Quran. Within the Christian tradition, Gabriel appeared to Daniel to interpret his dreams. Much later, Gabriel appears to Mary, announcing that she would become the mother of God.
The name “Gabriel” translates to “God is my strength,” and after Archangel Michael, she is said to be the most powerful archangel in the heavenly realms. Gabriel is also said to be the Archangel who works closest with humans. Therefore, she is a strong ally as we journey here on earth.
Is Archangel Gabriel Male Or Female?
You might have noticed that we refer to Archangel Gabriel as a female. However, Gabriel is neither male nor female. Male and female sex and masculine and feminine gender are attributes found in earthly forms. They don’t really exist in the spiritual dimensions.
So why do we refer to Archangel Gabriel as female? Gabriel beautifully embodies feminine energy, like creation, expression, the moon, water, and flowing inspiration.
For this reason, we’ve chosen to write about Gabriel as feminine. But if you identify with Gabriel in male energy or male form, there’s nothing wrong with that, and you can work just as closely with this powerful Archangel this way, too.
How Archangel Gabriel Supports And Inspires You
If you’ve never prayed to Gabriel or called upon this angelic ally, you might be curious why some people do. Here are five of the most significant ways Archangel Gabriel supports and inspires us.
1. Gabriel Improves Communication
Archangel Gabriel is a messenger of God. In her second biblical appearance, she told Mary that she would become the mother of God. For this reason, Gabriel is said to be the angel of communication, and this covers a wide range of messages.
First, consider that your intuition is always present in you, and always trying to communicate with you. If you’re having trouble tapping in and connecting with your intuition, Gabriel can help open this pathway of communication between your rational, thinking mind and your intuition.
Gabriel also supports communication with others. Whether we’re artists, writers, or teachers, it can be challenging to express ourselves clearly. Gabriel can help with this. If you feel tongue-tied, lost for words, or not sure how to speak up, Gabriel guides us in finding our voice and the right words to say.
2. Gabriel Helps Us Beat Procrastination
Archangel Gabriel is correlated with the element of water. And the “water” in your life might look like a work task, a personal endeavor, or an artistic project. Whatever the project is, you might be feeling stuck, either out of procrastination or out of fear.
In other words, the water in your life isn’t flowing. It’s blocked by a powerful damn, like anxiety, self-doubt, or low self-worth.
Archangel Gabriel helps us get the water flowing again so that we can move with greater ease, rather than feeling stuck or weighed down.
3. Gabriel Offers Support Around Fertility
Archangel Gabriel is a loving support for conception, pregnancy, and birth. You can think of her as your angelic doula. In Christian tradition, Gabriel announced Mary’s pregnancy, and you can call on her if you’re trying to get pregnant or you’re preparing for birth.
4. Gabriel Empowers Us
Remember, Gabriel’s name means “God is my strength.” Therefore, if you are ever feeling weak, fragile, or vulnerable, you can call on Gabriel to embolden you so that you can face your fears and overcome adversities with grace and strength.
5. Gabriel Provides Guidance And Direction
In the Book of Daniel, Gabriel appears to the prophet Daniel to explain his dreams. Within this context, Gabriel is referred to as an angelus interpres, or the “interpreting angel.”
- Do you feel confused or bewildered about what’s going on in your life?
- Do you need help in interpreting your life’s events?
Call on Archangel Gabriel to help you make heads and tails of things.
Gabriel is also said to provide direction when it comes to finding a career that aligns with your highest good. Gabriel can also guide you in the direction of your passions and dreams.
7 Signs Archangel Gabriel Is Near You
Now that you know how Gabriel can support and inspire you, you may find yourself praying to her more. But how will you know if she is listening and if she is present with you?
Angels exist on a higher vibrational frequency than humans, and it can be difficult for us to sense their presence or know that they’re with us. Angels understand this so they have clever ways to make their presence known. Here are seven ways Gabriel shows up for us.
1. Knowing A Sudden Solution
You might be mulling over a project for days (or even months). But after calling on Archangel Gabriel, you might have a flash of insight – an ah-ha moment. This can be a sign of Gabriel’s presence, helping to open up the channels of inspiration and helping you to think outside the box.
Usually, these “eureka” moments come after we’ve been struggling, meditating, or considering a problem for some time. Gabriel likes to work quickly and when the timing is right, she can give you that unmistakable moment of inspiration to set things in motion.
2. Seeing Copper Or White Light
Gabriel’s aura is copper-colored, and her energies also reflect white angel energy. When she is present with you, you may see copper light, white orbs, or shimmers of light in your peripheral vision.
The white light symbolizes the clarity and purity which her messages and energy provide to your thoughts, energy, and emotions.
3. Seeing The Name “Gabriel”
Even though Gabriel is an Archangel of love and light, her presence, fully unveiled, would overwhelm and stun us. So, she likes to subtly remind us of her presence. One clever way she does this is by drawing our attention to the name “Gabriel.”
You might overhear it in conversation, on the radio, or in song. You might see it in advertisements, in print, or merchandise. Whenever you notice “Gabriel”, you can smile at Gabriel’s ingenuity and thank her for being near you.
4. Seeing Trumpets
A popular trope in the Christian tradition is that Gabriel will blow her trumpet when God returns to earth. For this reason, artwork over the centuries has depicted Gabriel with a brass trumpet in hand. Don’t be surprised if Gabriel uses this object, too.
You might hear trumpet music, or you might see trumpet images. You might also notice trumpet shapes manifesting in more creative ways. For example, you might notice trumpet-shaped flowers, like the aptly named “Angel Trumpets”, or more common flowers, like lilies, petunias, and daturas.
5. Energy From The West
Tradition has it that the four Archangels guard the four points of the Earth: north, south, east, and west. Gabriel watches over the west. Therefore, if you feel energy from the west direction, such as warm, glowing, tingling, or even gold shimmers, this may be how Archangel Gabriel has chosen to manifest her presence to you.
6. Dream Messages
You’ll remember that Gabriel makes her first appearance in the Bible with the prophet Daniel when she interpreted his strange dreams. To this day, Archangel Gabriel likes to use dreams to send us messages.
It is an ideal realm of communication for Gabriel because she expresses feminine energy, like water, the moon, and intuition. She may make an appearance in your dream. Or, you may experience irrefutable certainty about a current challenge or struggle.
7. Writing Symbols
Archangel Gabriel frequently works with writers. Therefore, a very common sign of her presence is writing tools and/or symbols, like a notebook, a pen, pencil, quill, manuscript paper, or ink.
Recognizing these tools may be Gabriel’s way of inviting you to take the ideas and thoughts in your mind and transmitting them into physical form. This can mean writing it out in your journal, in a text message, or in a Word document.
Gabriel may also be using these symbols to encourage you to find and use your voice. Remember, she is the angel of communication and she will help you find not only your voice but the right words to say, too.
Archangel Gabriel is a beautiful and powerful ally who reaches down and inspires us. She is no stranger to assisting humans as we move through uncertainty.
Call on her to get unblocked, and to find your direction and true expression. As you call on Archangel Gabriel, look for these seven signs. They show, not only that Gabriel is with you, but that you’re one step closer to clarity and the direction you need to take.
