What’s Archangel Barachiel story?
The archangel Barachiel’s duties are as diverse as the blessings for which he is called. Barachiel is also the leader of the guardian angels, and it is written that if one is not praying to the guardian angel directly, but rather as an intercessor, Barachiel may be prayed to for all the benefits that the guardian angel is thought to confer. In the Byzantine Catholic and Eastern Orthodox traditions, he is revered as an official saint, particularly as a patron of marriage and family life. He’s also regarded as the angel sent by God to keep an eye on converts (also known as “adopted children of God”) and assist them in their lives.
Archangel Barachiel is listed in the Third Book of Enoch as one of the angels who serve as great and honored angelic princes in heaven, and he leads 496,000 other angels. He is the chief of all the guardian angels and a member of the seraphim class of angels who protect God’s throne.
What are Archangel Barachiel’s powers?
Barachiel is typically portrayed scattering rose petals, which signify God’s sweet blessings, or holding a white rose to his chest, which also represents blessings. However, some depictions of Barachiel show him carrying either a basket overflowing with bread or a staff, both of which represent God’s blessings on parents in the form of children. In paintings that emphasize Barachiel’s nurturing work providing blessings, he is often depicted in a feminine fashion.
Barachiel prays for people in need before God, requesting that God bless them in all aspects of their lives, from their relationships with family and friends to their jobs. People seek Barachiel’s assistance in achieving success in their endeavors. People often ask Barachiel for assistance in offering a blessing by one of their personal guardian angels, as Barachiel is also the leader of all guardian angels.
He will assist you in attracting the things you need, but you must also have the right mentality. He manifests and draws abundance, blessings, and happiness to your life when he is close to you. God’s goodness and kindness motivate him to send good gifts to people, and Barachiel is also the one who arranges for those gifts to be delivered. Barachiel will frequently send optimistic thoughts into people’s minds, encouraging them to expect the best in order to prepare them to receive the blessings that God has in store for them.

How to know if it is a trickster spirit rather than Archangel Barachiel?
When you first start on your spiritual journey, you may not know yet how to protect yourself, or your Spirit Guides have yet to adapt to protecting you on your new journey. This is the time when you are most vulnerable to trickster spirits, even though it happens all the time, to even more advanced spiritual practitioners.
These are the definite signs you are dealing with a trickster spirit:
- Feeling a presence when you are in a vulnerable position (grieving someone, fearing abandonment, fighting with your loved ones, anger issues, doubting everything, etc.). A trickster spirit will feed on these emotions, and also fuel them even more.
Trickster spirits are those spirits who appear to be as someone else, trying to get something from you, while making you think you are talking to the Spirit you want to talk. In most cases, trickster spirits are not dangerous, they won’t affect your life, but they will play games with your mind. If you are in a vulnerable position,
- You will be asked to offer something to them, straight away. The first thing a trickster spirit will ask of you, is for you to offer something to them. They will usually start with asking for small things like a fruit, or a flower, or a cup of milk, or go for big ones like a dog, a goat, and other animals. They will push you to fulfill their desire, because they will in turn, give you the information you have been seeking. If you are in a vulnerable position, you are desperate for that answer, and they can feel that.
- Trust your intuition. If you feel the answers from your spirit are tricky, or they don’t make sense, it’s because a trickster spirit doesn’t really know the truth, so they are trying to confuse you with half-answers, or nonsense answers.
A Spirit that holds power, such is Archangel Barachiel, will answer straight away. If they can’t provide an answer, they will give you the reason for it. You won’t have to try, and decipher what they may be saying, and you won’t get answers that don’t make sense, or that do not relate to the question at all.
How can you work with him?
As with any Archangel, if you want to work with them on the long term, you should build an altar for them. You can build Archangel Barachiel’s altar on a Tuesday, or Friday, you should go with your intuition. You should approach your spiritual work with Archangel Barachiel following these steps:
- Place the Altar. You have to find a high table, that won’t be disturbed, and cover it with a white cloth. Then, you have to put a statue of Archangel Barachiel, or a photo of him. If you can’t afford a quality statue, or photo, it is just fine if you print a photo of him from the internet. You only have to make sure that the Spirit in the picture is Archangel Barachiel.
- Dedicate a candle to her. You may need to get a green candle to light for him, and ideally light it every day. You should set a cup of water on the altar, which you change, and refill every other week. You may also want to put a cross on your altar. This is the basic altar, but if you want, you may share your daily food with your Archangel, or leave flowers on his altar.
- Spiritual Work on your Altar. All the spiritual work that you want to invoke the Archangel Barachiel’s powers, you should do in front of, or on, the altar. You may write a petition, or light a candle, and pray on what you want to manifest. Your Archangel will hear your wishes, and if it is on your best interest, he will grant it.

The prayer for Archangel Barachiel:
If you want to pray on a wish of yours, you need to light a candle for Archangel Barachiel, and this is the candle that will represent him, and the light that will guide him to come to you. If you pray at a church, you don’t need a candle for him. Other than the candle that represents Barachiel, you will need to light another candle that represents your prayer, or desire.
When you are in need for healing, either for yourself, or somebody else, you can pray to Archangel Barachiel to allow you to heal yourself or others, or for him, to use his healing powers for you. You may speak a prayer :
You may light a blue candle, or a green one, because these colors stand for healing, cleansing, and grounding. You want to nourish yourself, and bring life back to something that was touched by a disease. If you don’t have these colors, a white candle is just fine.

What to be cautious about?
You may think that Archangels are Angels of light, and they intent to help you become your best self, and manifest your best dreams. This is true. However, what you may fail to realize, is that Archangels do not take into account what you may lose along the way.
Therefore, you have to be cautious what you wish for. If you want more money, you should always make it clear that you don’t want anybody to get hurt, or you may name the exact sources that you want your money to come from (business, job promotion, etc.).
On another note, you should always be careful not to make promises that you can’t keep, or that you don’t intend to keep. These are the promises that you don’t fulfill, after your desire has been granted, and it is as simple as bringing them flowers, or offering food everyday for a week. These may also be promises like you will stop smoking, or drinking, if they grant you the promise. If you fail to uphold any promise that you make them, at the best, the Archangel won’t work with you anymore, and at the worst, they will take whatever they granted you, and more.
