The angelic realm is full of messengers who come to guide us when we have a specific task at hand. Their help is always available; but sometimes, we need to open our mouths and ask. To ask requires us to have humility. To ask requires us to know that we can turn to God, to Spirit and place our trust in a Higher Power. We do this because we know that our power alone is never enough.
In Jewish tradition, Jophiel is known to be companion of Metatron: a truly powerful angel believed to be one of the highest in the angelic hierarchy. While the lore surrounding Jophiel is traditional and not scriptural; in the Judeo-Christian tradition, she is the archangel associated with knowledge and wisdom.
As the leader of the cherubim and as a representative of the splendour and beauty of God, Archangel Jophiel drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden. After their exile, Jophiel was given the task of guarding the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden with a flaming sword.
It is this very sword that cuts through our delusions and personal illusions; in order to bring us closer to knowledge, truth and wisdom.
As the chief of the cherubim, Jophiel is believed to zealously guard the gate to prevent the re-entry of those who will not be reconciled with their Maker and who think that they can play God on earth.
Jophiel is one of the Archangels of Judgement. Jophiel was there when humanity first used their free will to go astray. She was there to show Adam and Eve the full consequences of their sin. As the first humans to ever have walked the earth, their Judgement Day must have been a true day of reckoning.
It was Jophiel who showed Adam and Eve all that they had done and all that they had failed to do due to their ignorance. She showed them the consequences and the repercussions that their actions would have on future generations.
She made them see that it was beyond them.
While Archangels do not have a prescribed gender the way that humans do, Archangel Jophiel is one of the few angels associated with the divine feminine. When Jophiel’s presence is near, we face up to the truth and are finally able to overcome any illusions in life that may be holding us back.
The flaming sword of Archangel Jophiel is used to cut through illusions, doubt, fear and the most venomous poison of them all: temptation. It is temptation–our misguided desire to be God–that leads us astray. God is God and we, as humans, are God’s creation.
If you, like many others out there, have doubt regarding whether God exists, then Jophiel is the archangel who can help you to overcome doubt and move into a place of confidence where you place your trust in a higher power. It is Jophiel who can help you to distinguish between the voice of spirit and the voice of the ego.
To have the humility to ask for help and receive the right kind of assistance, we need to have an active prayer life that is consistent.
Many of the so-called ‘voices’ we hear in our head consists of psychic clutter. It is no different to how clutter builds up in our physical environment. Jophiel can silence the voice of the ego so that we discover our inner beauty. After all, the name Jophiel means ‘beauty of God’.
If your own proverbial garden has a lot of tired and stuck energy in it; if you feel that you are being bogged down by work; if you are trying but your creativity feels blocked; Jophiel is here help you. Jophiel can help us to attain success in our careers; especially for those of us who are involved in an artistic line of work.
Archangel Jophiel’s appearance heralds a time when our confidence begins to increase. She is there to silence the voice of doubt, fear and temptation; which many of us rightly associate with the voice of the ego.
Archangel Jophiel is known to heal negative emotions and chaotic situations. She can bring to us serene thoughts that help us to organise our lives. Jophiel reminds us that it is not about where you started or even where you’ve been. It’s about where you’re headed.
