Archangel Ariel is the archangel of the natural world. Her name means the ‘Lion of God’, and this represents her fierce and protective nature.
She is a healer that exists to protect and care for plants and animals. She has been found in various religions and spiritual practices, so you can connect with her regardless of your beliefs and ideas.
I have a fond appreciation of Archangel Ariel, as I believe that our relationship with the earth is super important for our spiritual wellbeing. There is so much to learn from her and mother nature, and we can connect with Ariel in order to appreciate the world around us.
In this article, I will tell you how to recognize Archangel Ariel and how to connect with her when we are in need of guidance.
Who Is Archangel Ariel?
Often referred to as the Archangel of Mother Earth, Archangel Ariel is the protector of plants and animals. She oversees the natural world and is deeply connected to the four elements that make up the world around us.
When we are needing help in taking care of the environment and wildlife, we can turn to Archangel Ariel and manifest her strength and powers.
When we connect with her, we can form a deeper appreciation of mother nature, allowing her knowledge to strengthen our own.
As an animal lover, I have turned to Archangel Ariel time and time again. I will often feel her presence when I am surrounded by nature. She can help us heal sick or injured animals and protect the environment around us.
Because she has power over all the elements, connecting with Archangel Ariel can help us manifest our goals and dreams and stay grounded.
Why Is It Important to Connect With Archangel Ariel?
I believe Archangel Ariel’s presence and powers are incredibly important right now. Humanity is facing a crisis as we do not appreciate mother nature as much as we should. This means that we are disrespecting and using the world we live in.
Even though we are aware of how our activity is harming planet earth, the UN believes that our actions show ‘no signs of slowing down’. Humanity is still on course to destroy the planet.
In order to change this, we need to connect with the spirit of the planet. By connecting with Archangel Ariel, we are able to maintain a deep relationship with mother nature.
Mother nature is super important to our spirituality, too. If we practice magic, we can turn to the elements in order to enhance our powers. Developing our spirituality allows us to live a fulfilling and peaceful life.
How To Recognize Archangel Ariel?
Because archangels exist on higher vibrational frequencies than us, it can be hard to recognize their energy around us. Sometimes, they will appear in their true form, but this is very rare. Instead, the archangels will usually show us they are around with signs and symbols.
So, what are things to look out for when we want to know if Archangel Ariel is around?
Archangel Ariel Symbol
Because her name means the ‘Lion of God’, Archangel Ariel is often depicted with a lion. The image and symbolism of a lion represent her passion and power. As a Tarot card reader, Archangel Ariel always reminds me of the Strength tarot card. The imagery of this card is fascinating, showing an angelic figure holding a fully grown lion.
Like the Strength card, Archangel Ariel reminds us of the need for compassion in strength and power. She is a powerful being, yet her energy is one of care and tenderness. Just like the Lion, she can be nurturing as well as fierce.
Archangel Ariel is also associated with the symbol of the globe. This represents her control over nature and the elements.
Archangel Ariel Number
Archangel Ariel is linked to the number 4. In numerology, the number 4 has energy of stability and support. It reminds us to be responsible for our actions and the consequences of what we do in the world around us.
The number 4 is also linked to the four elements that make up the world: earth, wind, air, and fire. Because Archangel Ariel controls these elements, the number 4 is further linked to this angel.
Archangel Ariel Color
All archangels are linked to specific angel colors. When they are around, we might see a glow of their color surrounding us.
Archangel Ariel is interesting as she is not only linked to the color pale pink, but also to the rainbow. When she is around, we might see a pale pink glow in the corners of our eyes. This means that she is ready to help you.
When we are out in nature and see a rainbow, this is usually a sign that Archangel Ariel is nearby. Always take a moment to appreciate the rainbow that we see, and to thank Archangel Ariel for her unconditional support and care.
How To Connect With Archangel Ariel
We may not feel it from time to time, but all the archangels are there in the universe to help us on our path. We can turn to them when we are in need or when we are wishing to enhance our spirituality.
So, what are the best ways to connect with Archangel Ariel?
Meditation is one of the best ways to connect with archangels. When we meditate, we open up our souls to higher realms of vibrations. This allows archangels to recognize and connect with us.
When I want to connect with Archangel Ariel, I will always meditate outside in nature. This is because she is the archangel of the natural world, and so more active around plants and animals.
Here is a meditation ritual that will allow you to connect with Archangel Ariel:
- Go to your favorite space in nature. It could be a park, a forest, or even by the sea! Make sure it is the place where you feel most connected with mother nature.
- Sit comfortably on the floor and close your eyes.
- Take a moment to acknowledge thoughts or worries that may be running through your head. Then, gently turn your focus onto your senses.
- What can you hear right now? Can you hear birds singing? Waves crashing? Trees rustling?
- How about smell? Can you smell anything in particular?
- Move onto your sense of touch. What can you feel right now? Are you sitting on grass? Can you feel it tickle your legs?
- Take a while going through these different sensations. This allows you to link your body with mother nature, experiencing everything nature has to offer you right now.
- When you feel connected to the nature around you, it is time to turn your attention to Archangel Ariel. Ask her to come to you. You can say this out loud, or in your head. Either way, she will hear!
- If you need to, ask for specific help from Archangel Ariel. Why do you need her support right now?
I always feel so refreshed after this meditation. Sometimes, I won’t feel the presence of Archangel Ariel around, but that is okay! Even if you cannot sense her, she is there in the universe listening to you.
Crystals are fantastic spiritual tools that have been used for centuries as healing and metaphysical tools. But, did you know that certain crystals are linked to specific archangels?
Archangel Ariel is linked to rose quartz. This beautiful stone has energy of healing and care, allowing us to love and care for ourselves and those around us. When we are wanting to connect with Ariel, we can meditate with rose quartz or have them around us.
Archangel Ariel is also connected with jade. Jade is a protective stone that is connected with the element of earth. It is also linked to productivity and stability, so perfect to use if you are connecting with Ariel for these reasons.
Surround Yourself With Nature
As Archangel Ariel is the archangel of mother earth, spending time in nature is a great way to connect with her. I love going out into the countryside and exploring the world around me, and will always feel a deep link with Archangel Ariel when I am out and about in nature.
Of course, it can be hard to surround yourself with nature if you live in a city! I used to live in a huge city with very few green spaces, and I did feel out of touch with my spirituality during this time.
If you feel disconnected from mother nature, have a look at parks nearby. Is there a place you can go and meditate? Sometimes, even the smallest city parks can help us reconnect with planet earth and Archangel Ariel.
When out in a park, a forest, or the countryside, always stay present and aware of what is around you. It is not uncommon for animals with Archangel Ariel’s spirit to come to you when you are out in nature. Her spirit can appear in all animals and plants, so acknowledge all the beautiful living things that surround you!
Perform a Four Element Ritual
Archangel Ariel has power over the four elements, so honoring them in a ritual is a great way of connecting with her.
I like to invoke the four elements regularly in my spirituality, as it always makes me feel connected with the world and my spirit. I will perform this ritual at my altar. If you don’t have an altar, that is okay! You can perform this ritual wherever you wish, as long as you feel safe and peaceful. Find a room in your home where you won’t be disturbed, and lay out a cloth on the floor.
In order to honor the four elements, you need four items that represent each one. We can use crystals, candles, or other items to represent the elements. When it comes to picking the items, have a think about your intuitions and what you are drawn to. What represents the elements the most for you?
- For earth, I will usually use a bowl of soil. However, green or brown candles can be used. Herbs and plants are also great ways to represent earth.
- For air, I will use a feather. Incense and candles can also be used.
- For fire, I will usually light a candle. However, there are loads of crystals that you can use to represent fire, such as amber and carnelian.
- For water, I use a bowl of water or a seashell. I love the sea and feel deeply connected to it, so will often use things from the sea in my four element rituals! There are also some wonderful crystals we can use to represent water, such as aquamarine.
When you have your items, place them on your altar. Place the item for earth to the north, the item for air to the east, the item for fire to the south, and the item for water to the west.
Go through each element one by one, asking the element to assist you in your life. Remember to appeal to Archangel Ariel when doing so. For example, ‘I ask the element of air to help me with clarity and understanding. I thank Archangel Ariel for providing me with this element’.
Be Proactive In Environmental and Wildlife Issues
When we are wanting to connect with certain archangels, I think it is super helpful to manifest their qualities in our day-to-day lives. As Archangel Ariel is the archangel of nature, being proactive in helping mother earth is a great way to connect with her.
Are there things you can do in your life to care for plants and animals? Can you volunteer at charities that help clean up the environment or look after unwell wildlife?
You don’t have to do anything too huge, either! Simply planting some wildflowers in your garden or placing bee hotels in your yard can be great ways to connect with Archangel Ariel.
