Archangel Sandalphon


Sandalphon is a Celestial Angelic Being within the Angelic Order known as the Archangels.  Archangels are responsible for ministering to humans, considered somewhat like “manager angels,” Archangels oversee the responsibilities of Guardian Angels and the other Celestial Light Beings that act as our guardians and guides.

Each Archangel has specific qualities that distinguish their characteristics and their specific angelic responsibilities.  Also known as: Ophan, Saldlfon and Sandolphon.  This Archangel once walked upon the earth as a mortal man and was known as the prophet Elijah.  Elijah was granted incarnation as an Angel through the good deeds he did on Earth.  He can help you live with integrity, bring spiritual gifts of prophecy, allow healing, speak the truth, support manifestation and  is an Angelic Ambassador of Prayers.  Archangel Sandalphon can bring gentleness into all areas of your life. He can help you be kind and gentle, yet powerful.  he is the Archangel associated with Music.

One of Sandalphon’s principal roles is to help answer our prayers and assist with our personal Ascension. He can help you allow yourself to receive as he is the Angelic Ambassador of Prayers.  As an Angelic Ambassador of Prayers, Archangel Sandalphon’s angelic responsibilities include delivering our prayers to the Divine Universal Source.  Sandalphon reminds us of the power of prayer, reminding us that when we open our heart, mind and spirit in any form of prayer, we are joined and supported by infinite number of Celestial Light Beings, Angels, Ascended Masters, Guardians, and Guides.

Archangel Sandalphon reminds us that the Universal Divine Source is infinite and omnipresent, as are infinite the number of angels, and Celestial Light Beings.  There is never a need to worry that we are bothering or burdening the Divine Source or burdening any of the archangels, ascended masters and/or celestial light beings with our prayers and requests.  There is never a request that is too large nor is any prayer ever considered insignificant.  Each and every prayer, formal and informal, prayers in every language, petitioned through any and every religion and/or petitioned through no religion – are heard.

Sandalphon knows, from personal experience, what it is to live as a mortal.  He has personal experience with ascending through the physical realm to higher levels of consciousness. As Angelic Ambassador of Personal Ascension, Sandalphon is an excellent Angelic Ally to those who are dedicated to a path of self-discovery, personal growth and ascension.  He serves with infinite compassion and personal understanding, devoted to supporting us through our own ascension process.

As we create with our words, create with our thoughts, with our emotions, our imagination, with our intentions and beliefs, so do we also create with the energy of our prayers.  As Angelic Ambassador of Prayer, Sandalphon guides and encourages the use of Affirmative Prayer, wording prayers so that the prayer reflects and affirms the desired reality.  As we align the energy of our prayers to reflect the desired reality as if it has already been realized, we raise the vibration of our consciousness to co-create with the Divine.

Within the role of Angelic Ambassador of Prayer, Sandalphon also reminds us that every prayer is answered, answered within Divine and Perfect Time and within the essence of Divine Grace.

Archangel Sandalphon and his twin brother, Metatron are the only archangels who were once mortal men.  Sandalphon lived as the prophet Elijah and Metatron was the wise scribe Enoch. Elijah made his ascension to heaven via a horse drawn chariot of fire and light.

In Kabalistic tradition Sandalphon is said to be the Guardian of the very bottom sphere on the Tree of Life and it is through his discernment that one does ascend onto the next level. It is referred to as the Earth Star.  The Earth Star chakra is the grounding point we use when we earth our energies and is found about 50cm below our feet. It is our connection to Mother Earth and helps keep us firmly “planted” into physicality, which is where we are meant to be in our physical incarnations. Being properly grounded through the Earth Star helps to keep our subtle bodies anchored and aligned correctly. To ground yourself, connect with the earth.

Quote from a HW Longfellow Poem, “Sandalphon”

“Of the limitless realms of the air,–
Have you read it,–the marvellous story
Of Sandalphon, the Angel of Glory,
Sandalphon, the Angel of Prayer? ”
