The Archangel Uriel

Archangel Uriel is known as the angel of wisdom. He shines the light of
God’s truth into the darkness of confusion. Uriel means “God is my light” or
"fire of God." Other spellings of his name include Usiel, Uzziel, Oriel, Auriel,
Suriel, Urian and Uryan.

The faithful turn to Uriel for help seeking God’s will before making
decisions, learning new information, solving problems and resolving

They also turn to him for help letting go of destructive emotions such as
anxiety and anger, which can prevent believers from discerning wisdom or
recognizing dangerous situations.


In art, Uriel is often depicted carrying either a book or a scroll, both of which
represent wisdom. Another symbol connected with Uriel is an open hand
holding a flame or the sun, which represents God’s truth. Like his fellow
archangels, Uriel has an angelic energy color, in this case red, which
represents him and the work he performs. Some sources also attribute the
color yellow or gold to Uriel.


Like many other figures in Judaism and Christianity, the archangels have
been a source of inspiration in popular culture. John Milton included him in
"Paradise Lost," where he serves as the eyes of God, while Ralph Waldo
Emerson wrote a poem about the archangel that describes him as a young
god in Paradise.

Why is Uriel the Archangel of Earth?

The Angel Uriel Works with Nature's Earth

Archangel Uriel is the angel who oversees the element of earth.

God has given several archangels supervisory duties over the four natural
elements on Earth, believers say, and the angel who oversees earth is
Archangel Uriel. Here's a look at why Uriel is the angel of earth, and how
Uriel's primary focus on wisdom ties into working with earth:
Grounding in God's Wisdom

Uriel helps people find their footing on the solid ground of God's wisdom,
so they can make decisions based on what's true and reliable in life.

“Uriel is the most earthly of the archangels, and acts as a channel between
the earth and the divine," writes Richard Webster in his book Uriel:
Communicating with the Archangel for Transformation and Tranquility. "He
is in charge of bringing God’s plan into the material world.”

He is the flash of inspiration that shows the way ahead, the light of spirit
that illuminates the truth. His element is earth, and he has long been
associated with thunder and earthquakes. As thunder is the sound of
lightning, his gift is the flash of knowing, the thunderbolt of realization.”

“Archangel Uriel connects us to God’s infinite wisdom and assists us in

focusing upon intellectual pursuits," .

Down-to-Earth Solutions for Problems

As the angel of the earth element, Uriel also provides practical, down-to-
earth guidance that helps people solve problems in their lives.

“Uriel works in an extremely subtle manner, and frequently you’ll discover

that he has answered your call by giving you a unique idea that solves your

… he is able to turn situations completely around and give us a fresh

perspective. Uriel helps us understand that something that caused
enormous disappointment at the time may later be seen as a wonderful

“Uriel illuminates our minds with information, ideas, epiphanies, and

insights," .

"He’s wonderful to call on whenever you need a solution, such as at

business meetings, when writing, while studying, or when taking a test. He’ll
whisper correct and appropriate answers into your ear, which you’ll receive
as words or thoughts that are immediately ‘downloaded’ into your mind.
After you ask Uriel for help, notice your thoughts. You can trust what you
get as the right answer, directly from the archangel.”

A Stabilizing Force

Just as the earth element represents stability, Uriel acts as a stabilizing

force, helping people find peace in their souls and successfully navigate
through unstable situations in their lives.

“Archangel Uriel is prepared to help you whenever you need to find inner
peace," writes Webster in Uriel: Communicating with the Archangel for
Transformation and Tranquility.
"If you find yourself dwelling on past mistakes or on what might have been,
or are full of inner turmoil, call on Uriel for help.”

Uriel, "represents the union of Heaven and Earth, made manifest through
the beauty of the human heart. … It is the magic of the love we may offer
another – the act of pure giving free of self-interest. It is the love that
transforms and transcends the self, moving us through compassion
towards a state of spiritual maturity.”

As the leader of the red angelic light ray, Uriel encourages people to
express that compassion through service to God and others.

Uriel also helps people work hard to bring about prosperity in their own
lives. “Uriel wants people to prosper and become successful.


"Dear Archangel Uriel, as you are placed in the role of a stabilizing presence
here on Earth, please watch over me, so that I may tread the path of
gentleness and care. Please teach me to be in the world and not of it,
allowing my spiritual gifts to unfold, as well as bringing my material life to
