Archangel Gabriel is associated with the white ray of purity and is often called upon to help cleanse and purify thoughts, feelings and deeds. Those who are feeling spiritually blocked may benefit from asking for help from Archangel Gabriel and visualising the white ray of purity enveloping them.
Archangel Gabriel is also known as a messenger. For example, as Angel Gabriel, he is mentioned in several places in the Old Testament and Bible and was named as the angel who brought messages to Elizabeth and Mary about the forthcoming births of their children, John the Baptist and Jesus of Nazareth.
Interestingly, in some forms of art and literature, Archangel Gabriel is also pictured as being female.
The names of all the archangels finish with the letters, "el", which mean, "in God."
