Archangels & Reiki

Article by Reiki Master Sunetra Dasgupta

The term “Archangel” means “An Angel of higher kind.”

The Archangels take care of people by strengthening and assisting them in every walk of life. They do not believe in any particular religion, caste or creed, and help us to heal or get healed if called upon with a pure heart. But it’s very important we keep in mind that they do not interfere in our Karma. There are Four Primary Archangels who are associated with the four main Usui Symbols. They are Archangel Michael, Archangel Gabriel, Archangel Rafael and Archangel Uriel.

Michael – “Who is Like God”

He is in charge of protection, justice, truth.

Michael grants miracles and gets rid of toxins, lower energies and spirit release.

Michael is associated with the Dai Ko Myo

He also oversees a healer’s life purpose.

Call on Michael if you find yourself under psychic attack or when your job is too demanding with impossible.

Deadlines to reach and people to handle.

Gabriel“Messenger of God”

The only female Archangel in charge of communication.

Contact Gabriel: If your third eye is closed.

If you want a child she may help you conceive or bring news of conception.

Raphael not only helps you to heal from physical, emotional and mental pain.

    good things to know about, might take up learning in some time…

  • Sunetra July 9, 2013, 11:37 am

    Thank You Suman for your appreciation :)… I hope you too take up this wonderful practice some day 🙂

  • Micha'ele July 9, 2013, 1:47 pm

    Love this, thanks for sharing!

  • Cheyenne July 9, 2013, 3:14 pm

    There is much more to this topic-the nine hierarchies of angels correlate with the Reiki symbols-ask you rangels to guide you. It is such a lovely understanding to be lt in to.

    • Sunetra July 9, 2013, 3:32 pm

      Definitely Cheyenne…. shall do it and hope so I present it food enough to be published 🙂

  • Akoma July 9, 2013, 4:29 pm

    This is wonderful information! How can we learn more and become attuned to this modality?

    • Sunetra July 9, 2013, 4:32 pm

      Any Reiki Master who is attuned to Angel Reiki can attune you. You can call upon and meditate on them too 🙂

  • Sunetra July 9, 2013, 4:39 pm

    A personal note…. Its when My master and I got attuned to Angel Reiki we understood the true sacredness of it.

  • Amy Dunne July 9, 2013, 5:14 pm

    I am still new to Reiki. I am Reiki II level but still feel new. I have called upon Archangel Michael and I started to make my own entourage for practicing my Reiki. I just did it with my gut and looking forward to using other archangels. Does anyone have any suggestions on keeping your Reiki strong. I have an infant and a toddler and my Reiki sometimes has to get put aside. I have practiced on my children when they have agreed to receiving it.
    Thanks.,,,sorry got off the topic

    • Sunetra July 9, 2013, 5:49 pm

      For your children you can call upon Archangel Gabriel and Rahphael. They will protect your children from all psychic and physical attacks. If you have time for 5 minutes with the distance symbol connect to any of the descended masters or Angels and start giving Reiki to them. This not only amplifies your Reiki but also works as a self healing method. hope this helps 🙂

      • Amy July 9, 2013, 6:50 pm

        @ Sunetra,
        WoW thanks. so what you are telling me is to do the long distance Reiki to Archangels and what descended masters do you Rec’mnd? I have never heard of that. When I rec’vd attumnet for Reiki II I didn’t receive much information on long distance. She gave me the info but I didn’t get much description. I have been educating myself really.
        Thanks again!

        • Sunetra July 10, 2013, 4:48 am

          Hi, Yes I am asking you to give distance healing to Archangels. You can give Reiki to any master you would like to ex:Dr. Usui or Mrs. Takata even for to Jesus! You have lots of them to work with 🙂 I generally give Reiki to Lord Buddha and my sister to Jesus :).

  • paul July 10, 2013, 12:24 pm

    Does this mean that when we use certain symbols that we have asked for a connection with that particular Angel?

    • Sunetra July 10, 2013, 1:35 pm

      Dear Paul,
      No its not necessary to use certain symbols tog call upon the Archangels. You can just call them with a clear heart and they will respond. 🙂

  • Dani July 11, 2013, 4:05 am

    I really enjoyed reading your article ! I would love to read more ! I am finally on the right path of my life and I am so, so happy to be learning everything I can about Angels and Archangels !!!

    • Sunetra July 11, 2013, 4:35 am

      • Waheda July 15, 2013, 1:30 pm

        Dear sunitra
        How to call the arc angel and how can i understand their presence.
        Regards reikie master and altrnative healer

        • Sunetra July 15, 2013, 2:08 pm

          Dear Waheda,
          You can call upon the Arch Angels by simply praying and calling their name or connecting to them with the help of the distance healing symbol. Keep your hand in Gasho (Namaste) position with your thumbs touching to your third eye and after sometime you feel feel their presence. Always Thank them for their presence when you see and hear them.

          Love N Light

  • Ranjani July 26, 2013, 11:07 am

    Dear sunetra,

    thank you for sharing such a beautiful and helpful article.i’am reiki level II practitioner. i have some queries regarding this. How can we call the angels, please can you specify the steps to be followed. and also how much time should we do this. after calling them can we say our intentions and ask them to guide us, also how to send them back after the reiki session. can we call two angels at a time.
    please help.

    Thank you.

    • Sunetra July 26, 2013, 11:37 am

      Dear Ranjani,
      Thank You for your kind words :), We can call upon the Angels by connecting to them with the distance healing symbol or we can just keep our hands in gasho (namaste) position and request for their presence. To answer your second question how much time you should do this, Its totally up to you, rely on your intuition. Once you are done with your Reiki session thank the angels for their presence and guidance and they go back. No harm though if they stay with us right? 🙂 We can call as many angels as we may please at a time.
      Hope I have answered your queries.

    nice article…hope you’ll talk about the rest of them as well!

  • Zoe September 24, 2013, 9:58 am

    Great information.

    Although reading through the thread, there are some misconceptions.

    EVERY person on the planet can work with Archangels for themselves or for the highest good of others (if it isn’t for their highest good, but your idea of that, it won’t work…). You do not need to be attuned to anything, you do not need to learn anything, you are connected to Angels already. They are all around you. Waiting for you to ask for their help and guidance. Communicate with your Guardian Angel, your spirit guides and Archangels of the realm. With time you will get to know them and what they can be utilised for.

    There are plenty of sources of information as to who the Archangels are, and what their roles are. Sources of information vary depending on different religions or non religions – my advice would be to study all. Communicate with them and discover the full truth yourself.

    If you are attuned to Reiki – you can ask your guides, your guardian angels and all or any of the Archangels to assist you or work you when healing, for the highest good of the recipient. There is NO requirement to be attuned to something else add this to your Reiki practice.

    • Akoma September 24, 2013, 2:32 pm

      What a wonderful and true comment. Sometimes, we come from a place of not believing that we are our own best teachers. I’ve wanted to study Angel Reiki, but your point make so much sense and resonates with me. Thank you for your wisdom!

    • christy November 13, 2013, 5:52 am

      Right on my friend… Everyone has this . All you need to do is ask and feel and receive…They are here to help always…

  • Sunetra May 8, 2014, 5:38 am

    Hi Dianne,

    If you have not practiced first level for a year or more, i suggest you take a reattunement, else practice level one again for a month and then get attuned to level 2.

  • Amudhan June 12, 2014, 10:27 am

    The author has written ” Call on Michael”. But how to call on should i first activate Reiki and then pray to Michael or i can pray to Micheal even without activating Reiki

    • Uttam June 12, 2014, 7:02 pm


      You can just request him with an open heart to support you in your healing work, just like you start your reiki with an attitude of gratitude. There is no such technical way as to what to do first. Ask and it is done.

      I seek the assistance of Archangel Michael in my energy clearing work and my job gets done in a few moments which would otherwise have taken longer time to clear.

  • Paula June 18, 2014, 7:33 pm

    Thanks for the interesting information on ArcAngels. Angels have always interested me. I just took my Reiki Master course to use on my family and friends and myself. If you have any other fun info, I would love to read it.

  • Deepthi July 18, 2014, 10:43 am

    Hi Sunetra,
    Very nice article. I am at reiki level1 . But happened to go through Reiki rays . My son just loves when I Call upon Archangel Michael and Raphael to heal him . We changed his school and was full of pain and sorrow. Surprisingly he wakes up next day with full vigour. My doubt is can I call upon for small problems like this. I saw remarkable change in my daughter too. I do reiki on my kids too daily while they go yo bed.
    Thanks in advance .

    Hi Sunitra,

    Which symbol would be good to use to connect with Arcangel Chamuel?

    thank you!

  • Lyly August 16, 2014, 10:24 am

    my job requires me to fly a lot because i work for an airline. Paradoxically, I am not a very comfortable flyer – one can even say I am slightly phobic… I am anxious weeks before the flights date and the night before is extremely difficult for me to stay calm.

    Before my last flight ( over 14 hours in a plane …woohoo!!! ), I came accross a reiki exercise and prayer calling upon archangel Michael to fill me with calm and trust. I did it, truthfully just willingly doing anything that would help me calm down.

    Result ?

    This was the smoothest, most comfortable I had ever been on a plane. I slept for most of it, relaxed and faithful, even finding myself understanding what noise was what as it was going on. There was sometimes strong turbulence, even slept through that or comfortably noticed how the plane was shaking but still somehow being carried by some invisible force, at some point we dropped quite a bit and i felt how a sort of air cushion ‘ caught’ the plane and pulled us back up – that was actually my favorite part of the entire flight. I understand I was in the hands of very good pilots and aerodynamics but this time those thoughts were stronger than the fear voice.

    I had called up on angels to fly with me many times and had managed to go through every flight this way. But this time was different, I enjoyed it, as a matter of fact i look forward to the next one in 2 days.

    Pretty awesome!

    Thank you so much for all the articles you keep posting. I learnt so much from them which I am using in my Reiki healing. Keep up the good work! I am an Angel Card reader too and as such have been instinctively using the help of Archangels Michael and Raphael for my Reiki practices! Am looking forward to seeing more posts from you. Shall visit your Facebook page right now. Thanks once again.

    Angel Blessings 🙂


  • Catherine September 16, 2014, 1:23 pm

    Hi, Sunetra,

    Your article has been very insightful. Being a catholic, I have grown with this belief of having a guardian angel that is guiding me all my life and have experienced this many times. But I could never give a name to this angel. Now I can, thanks to your article. I would like to get in touch with you through mail. Please do contact me if it is okay with you. I need some more guidance from you.

    Hi ! Thank you for this wonderful article! I live your suggestion to send distant reiki to archangels and even Jesus 🙂 please explain more how this is beneficial, though the idea spirals to me greatly. I am a Reiki master and very interested in learning Angel Reiki.would you know anyone I could ask here in Dubai? Also my 5 year old son, Rafael, has repeated ear infections, I give him Reiki all the time, but how can I further enhance my healing?
    Thanks! 🙂

    I have been a Reiki Master since 2011 but it has only been in the 9 months the angels are coming through. This was unexpected and now I feel as though I am trying to “catch up” to better understand. As always though, I trust spirit to show me what I need. It’s exciting to have them come through during my work.

    This is more a question than a comment. I am very confused that Gabriel is referred to as “she.” I have never heard that before, and in my experience, Gabriel is a male name. Are there traditions somewhere (if so, where, please?) that this Archangel is seen as female?

  • jackie March 3, 2015, 1:31 am

    Thank you for that Information 🙂

  • SP March 3, 2015, 5:00 pm

    I’m confused about archangels and their place in Reiki. From my understanding archangels are figures from organized religions (specifically from Christianity) but Reiki is a form of non-religious energy healing that was started by Buddhist monk from Japan. How do the 2 relate? Is this a branch of Reiki that someone has created? Just curious how the 2 came to be, just like the intersect between Reiki and Chakras. I didn’t really find anything on the internet. Thanks

  • Dr Prakash May 14, 2015, 4:27 am

    A very nice article and do nicely explained. The contents and the reply given are also very enlightening.
    I however sometimes wonder why people give importance to rituals and not intent. Maybe it’s what our (every) religion teaches us.
    Intent and belief is the most important ingredient of any form of divine healing. A powerful belief and healing intent is a must…. You may call any angel by any name :)… They are simply – divine.
    Why I say this is because people have been brought up with their religious belief and the name of angels may well be someone they relate to. One can and should modify to get better intuitive guidance.
