Introducing Archangel Sandalphon…
Archangel Sandalphon is the second of 2 archangels whose name does not end in ‘el’ which means ‘of God’ (recall that Archangel Metatron is the other) and like Metatron, is believed to have had an earthly incarnation. It is also believed that he was the prophet Elijah before ascending. These 2 archangels are known to have a brotherly relationship and when one works with the energy of either archangels, both are usually present.
Archangel Sandelphon is known to be a very tall angel for those with clairvoyance abilities who are able to see him. He is usually seen wearing sandals and often, holding a musical instrument. When visualizing this angelic energy, I usually see him resembling a monk figure.
Archangel Sandalphon is known to be the patron of musicians and the protector of unborn children. He rules the earth chakra (chakra located in the earth approximately 6-12″ under your feet). He watches over everything living on the earth including humankind and nature, the mineral and crystal realm, flowers, trees, etc. He is also known as the angel who delivers our prayers to Heaven.
His energy is very grounding and you can call upon his energy to help you ground to Mother Earth and to your inner self. In fact, when asked Archangel Sandalphon will help you to connect with your physical, mental and emotional self and where you are at the current time. He will help you to acknowledge any difficulties and emotional blockages that you are facing and through prayer and meditation, release any negative energies. He will support you in finding peace and in moving forward.
Archangel Sandalphon’s energy is gentle, compassionate and holds a soft strength that you can feel as soon as you invoke his energy.
As I prepared to write this article today, I asked Archangel Sandalphon what messages he wanted to convey for us all. I first pulled a card from Doreen Virtue’s Archangel Oracle Cards. It was a card from Archangel Sandalphon called Gentleness (you can’t make this up and there are only a couple of his cards in the deck). He is asking us to be gentle with ourselves at this time and to do that by surrounding ourselves with gentle people, situations and environments. I am hearing him now telling us to spend time in nature and to listen to gentle music.
I then pulled a card from Sandra Anne Taylor’s Energy Oracle Cards. The card is called Indecision. Archangel Sandalphon’s message is around making a decision at this time. If you are undecided about a possible decision that you need to make, spend time in prayer and meditation and he will help you let go of self-doubt, make a decision for your greatest good and the greatest good of all concerned and will help you to move forward.
