As most of you are aware, the word angel means “messenger.” Angels bring us messages from Source. Our Creator. These messages are meant to remind us that our natures are Divine and our angels are here, as one of the ascended masters told me recently to “help us enact God’s plan of LOVE. ” Therefore, our angels desire to help us in ANY way that will steer us into serenity. So, it makes sense for us to ask for and accept the guidance of our angels in all areas of our lives: health, relationships, finances & career.
The angels are overseen by archangels, whom I suppose we might compare to managers or supervisors. These archangels tend to be larger and more powerful. They are non-denominational and help anyone who calls upon them, regardless of that person’s religious or non-religious background and because they are beyond the restrictions of space and time they are able to help us all individually and simultaneously. Therefore, we do not need to fear that we are pulling them away from a person with a more urgent need. There are numerous archangels; however, it does seem that the 4 best known are Archangel Michael, Archangel Raphael, Archangel Uriel & Archangel Gabriel. Remember that the angels and archangels don’t have physical bodies in the same the way we do; therefore, when we identify them by gender – it is as it relates to the energy of their specialties.
Archangel Jophiel’s name means “beauty of God.” She is the patron archangel of artists. I always call her in while I am writing my children’s books. Research shows that in some traditions she is called Iofiel or Sophiel. The Torah describes her as an upholder of Divine law. She beautifies and uplifts our thoughts & feelings and helps us to clear the clutter out of our lives. Jophiel is associated with the astrological sign of Libra and the crystal deep pink tourmaline. Her name is pronounced Jo-fee-el.
Dr. Doreen Virtue, one of my teachers, calls Jophiel a “feng shui” angel meaning that when you invoke her she will “compel you to clear your space by donating unneeded items, straightening your living or work areas, and filling your space with items imbued with high energy (like crystals, plants & flowers).” I cannot keep track anymore of the number of times in the last 8 years since studying with Doreen that I have donated most of my clothes and household contents! I work with Archangel Jophiel most days and ask her to help me to keep my thoughts uplifted, especially during times of crisis and change. I also invoke her for clients who need her help in transforming negative thoughts into positive affirmations in order to manifest their desires rather than their fears. Since Jophiel is involved in beautifying our planet by cleansing it of pollution, we can ask her for an assignment that suits our mission, our gifts and our time schedules.
Archangel Jophiel will also help you with your personal beauty and aesthetics , so, do not hesitate to call upon her for help with guidance regarding your hair, makeup or wardrobe. Feeling beautiful helps our general sense of well-being so do not feel that this is a trivial request. Ask for her guidance.
Doreen states: “If you find yourself in an ugly situation, chances are good that ugly thoughts helped to manifest it.” Doreen suggests, as do I, that you call upon Jophiel to help you turn things around. I have done this. It works! You do not need a special invocation to call upon her. Just ask sincerely and remember to say thank you. For those of you at the introductory level of working with your angels, I am giving a workshop on November 1st. All Saint’s Day. The angels chose this date, as you likely realize. Participants will enjoy with me an afternoon of PLAY, as they learn about these Heavenly assistants and how to ask for and receive their help and guidance.
Angel Blessings, Monica
