Here is another entry from my book The Complete Encyclopedia of Angels. Enjoy!
Jophiel is believed to be the first angel mentioned in the Bible. His name means “Beauty of God.” He guards the Tree of Life with a flaming sword and drove Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, freeing them so they could experience life more fully. His fiery sword cuts through illusion.
He is often associated with the color yellow. Jophiel wears a silver tunic and has warm, penetrating blue eyes. His large, shimmering wings cast a soft golden light over everything near them. Jophiel will help you manifest joy and happiness, illuminate your life and see the beauty around you. Jophiel blesses all creative endeavors and extends possibilities to those who call on him.
Jophiel teaches about love and the power of light within creation. He is in the choir of Cherubim where his sweet voice reminds you of the magnificence of spiritual pursuits. He brings inner wisdom, illumination and consistency.
Ask archangel Jophiel to inspire you. He often works in subtle ways so don’t be discouraged if you don’t see instantaneous results. He is there, bringing his wisdom and insight into your life in unusual ways, so pay attention to the small details of your day. Although his help may seem slow in manifesting, he works at a profound level to facilitate permanent change and lasting solutions.
Light a yellow or gold candle when you ask for Jophiel’s assistance. Take a few minutes to gather your thoughts and then talk to him about your life. Allow his gentleness and joy to illuminate all of your choices. Ask for his wisdom as you begin anew.
Jophiel can help you:
Do well on exams
Clean the house
Protect the environment
Jazz up your spiritual practices
Enhance your creativity
With love and aloha,
Angels are everywhere just open your mind and your heart to the signs.
Make Angels on Your Shoulder part of your daily routine and share it with a friend!
