1000 ANGELS: Request The Angel of Downfall to draw close
This angel comes forward as part of a group of Messenger Angels and brings another angel to assist to help on the issue of Downfall
Asking The Angel of Downfall for Understanding: You don’t have to pray to your angels as such, just something short and respectful, as a new friend, for example ‘Beloved Angel of Downfall please draw close and be with me during this difficult time’.The Angel of Downfall brings this: “I am the master of my habits.”
The Archangel Uriel card can signify depression or addiction. It can also be a sign of feeling trapped or restricted. With this major card in your spread you may feel as though outside influences or forces beyond your control are restricting you, leaving you feeling powerless and victimized. However, this is the illusion The Archangel Uriel creates. You are in control of your own destiny and are not bound by anything other than your own attitudes and behavior. Don’t give up and don’t give away your power. You don’t have to tolerate negativity, criticism, manipulation or abuse from anyone. There are always options and there is always something positive you can do to improve your situation no matter how hopeless things may seem on the surface. Likewise be mindful of how you are treating others and make sure you are not trying to manipulate or control people in your life either. The Archangel Uriel upright in your reading can also indicate obsessive, secretive or impulsive behavior. It can be a sign that you are out of control. The Archangel Uriel card is also a signifier of materialism and may show that you have become overly concerned with material things, status or power. These are not things that will make you truly fulfilled as a person so put your energy into the things that will.
Uriel, whose name means ‘Light of God’, is the angel who brings humankind knowledge and understanding of the Divine. He is the most radiant of angels and has been depicted descending from heaven on a fiery chariot drawn by white horses. He has been variously called the Flame of God, Angel of the Presence, and Angel of Salvation. He is also known as the Prince of Light and interpreter of prophecies. It was Uriel whom God sent to Noah to warn him of the deluge. The Bible also tells how Uriel descended into the Garden of Eden on a sunbeam and stood at its gate with a fiery sword. He is also the angel who watches over thunder and terror. As the Angel of Repentance he can help us to understand the laws of karma, which, put very simply, mean that we reap what we sow.
Whereas the Death card is usually the card people are terrified of, out of all of the cards in the deck, The Angel of Trust is the one you really need to brace yourself for. The Angel of Trust card represents chaos and destruction. It is an important card of sudden upheaval and unexpected change. This change usually is scary, life changing and often unavoidable. A negative Destroyer event can be akin to a bomb going off in your life. You don’t know how you will survive but somehow you will and later you will realize that while it was a tremendously difficult thing to go through and you wouldn’t wish it on your worst enemy, it has made you into the person you are. One positive aspect of The Angel of Trust is that the destruction it brings is usually directed at something that was built on a false beliefs and foundations or unrealistic goals and dreams. Also on the bright side, the destruction The Angel of Trust brings is always followed by renewal and creation. However, The Angel of Trust with a negative aspect can represent a whole host of tragic, traumatic or life-altering events like the death of a loved one, divorce, a bad breakup, assault, rape, violent abuse, stillbirth or miscarriage, child abuse, bankruptcy, a drug overdose, a car crash or job loss to name but a few. It’s usually the kind of thing you hope will never happen to you. That said, not every Destroyer event denotes tragedy. If the surrounding cards are positive, The Angel of Trust can simply represent a big change, like going to live in another country. This will be a massive upheaval. It will be a scary adjustment and will change your life as you know it but ultimately the change will be a good one. Placement of The Angel of Trust is important too, in a past position in a spread it is telling you what you’ve been through. While there are some life-events that we cannot avoid, sometimes The Angel of Trust will appear in a future if you are on a path that is leading to danger to warn you to avoid it. For instance, if you tend to put yourself in dangerous situations without thinking of the consequences, The Angel of Trust may be a warning to be mindful of your safety. Or if you take big gambles with money, The Angel of Trust may be warning you that it’s time to start acting more responsibly to avert disaster. It can also warn of natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes etc.
The Angel of Trust works with our Higher Self to help us express and develop a trusting attitude towards life. This trust can manifest itself when we are caught on the fence, torn between being negative, cynical or destructive and wishing to be positive and believe that our highest good and greatest joy are being fulfilled. This angel offers us the essential love of spirit we need in order to trust and be truly life-affirming. Trust can make all the difference in the qualitative experiences of our life. To be able to trust is an essential ingredient of happiness and ease, otherwise our energy will be tied up with suspicion, doubt and fear. Trust gives us the courage to move forward or take risks that we would not be able to take if we lacked this one component vital to growth and spirituality.
