I was thinking about what angel to spend the day with and Barakiel came to mind …. so here is the excerpt from my book The Complete Encyclopedia of Angels:
Barakiel’s name means “God’s blessing.” He is an ancient angel, over 130,000 years old, and is considered to be one of God’s mightiest angels. According to The Almadel of Solomon, a 17th century book purportedly written by King Solomon, Barakiel is in charge of people’s attitudes and protects innocents. Barakiel hunts evil, has dominion over lightning and rules the month of February. He is a ruler of the Seraphim which are divine creatures associated with Cherubim. Cherubim are the winged creatures, or guardian spirits, which protected the Garden of Eden.
Barakiel assists people in having a positive outlook and in experiencing good fortune.. Gamblers who really want to win would do well to ask Barakiel for his assistance.
Barakiel has a great sense of humor and inspires laughter and joy. It is said that as he walks in his favorite place, the prayers of people appear on the trunks of the trees. He always answers prayers offered with an open heart and a willing spirit.
Barakiel loves the forest, so if you want his aid light pine, cedar or sandalwood incense or place some leaves from your favorite tree around the room. Focus on your request, think clearly about what you want and then simply ask Barakiel to help you create it. Barakiel loves laughter so fill your heart with joy and celebration for what is about to come into your life..
Barakiel will help you with:
Protection during a thunderstorm
Lifting your spirits
Having a positive attitude
Succeeding when it seems like a long shot
With love and aloha,
Angels are everywhere just open your mind and your heart to the signs.
Make Angels on Your Shoulder part of your daily routine and share it with a friend!
