As the Archangel of creativity Gabriel’s energy is wonderful to have near when working on artistic endeavors, especially creative writing. Archangel Gabriel is best known as the messenger angel who told Mary and Elizabeth of their impending births to Jesus and John the Baptist. Her name means “God is my strength” and she is truly inspiring as the Archangel of conception, fertility and parenting. Gabriel encourages us to honor our own inner child as an adult, persuading us to look at the world with “child like” eyes; thus opening us up to all its potential.
