Uriel ~ "God is Light". Uriel hails from the angelic realm, the "Seraphim", who sit closest to God. He illuminates our thoughts and minds with new ideas and helps us let go of bad or stagnant situations. According to Hebrew sacred texts, his roles are vast, as he cuts through the mire, with a quick and passionate response - especially regarding difficult circumstances. Uriel works in concert with the three commonly known archangels, Gabriel, Michael, and Raphael, as a team. He was also the archangel who warned Noah of the impending flood.
