Archangel Uriel is the archangel of wisdom and philosophical illumination. The name Uriel is pronounced YUR-ee-el and is translated “God is Light” or “Light of God.”
Being the embodiment of the Light of God can mean many things, so throughout history, Uriel’s angelic functions have been diverse and varied.
Uriel belongs to a group of angels known as the illuminated seraphim.
Of the nine choirs of angels, the seraphim stand closest to the Creator. If you are in need of insight, illumination and wisdom it is a good idea to call upon Archangel Uriel.
God’s light is unimaginable to humans, so the closest that humans can get to being in the actual presence of God is to have His light reflected upon us by Archangel Uriel. For this reason, Uriel is also known as the ‘Angel of the Presence.’
Uriel is a high energy spiritual being who acts as a special conduit of God’s great wisdom and illumination, working selflessly to illuminate all of humanity.
