Here is an excerpt from my The Complete Encyclopedia of Angels.


Hasmal’s name refers to primordial, ancient wisdoms. He is associated with the mysteries of the hidden celestial spheres where the individual letters of the Holy Name are lovingly hung. It is said fire issues from his mouth when he speaks as he guards the throne of God. Whenever he is nearby, a brilliant, sacred white light is visible. His light guides spirits as they traverse the curtain of souls between life and death. His fiery breath burns away any limiting beliefs which keep people from experiencing ultimate happiness.

Hasmal helps you find the sacred in even the most mundane activities. The fire which proceeds his words reminds you of the importance of all of your communications. He reminds human beings that once a word is spoken it can never really be recalled, so choose your words carefully. Words spoken in anger can do irreparable damage so he reminds all mortals to speak only in love.


Hasmal’s favorite color is deep indigo. If you want to feel his presence in your life get some glow in the dark stars and stick them up around your home. Put a few indigo stars in your wallet to assure yourself of always having abundance.

Light a deep purple candle and then say, “Hasmal, keeper of the ancient wisdoms, please help me to make choices that will benefit myself and all others involved. Help me to speak with the power only true love can bring, now and always. I humbly give thanks for your presence in my life. May your light shine brightly in my world.”

Ask Hasmal to help you:

Clear up any painful communications
Connect with your divine purpose
Find the perfect name for a child or a pet
Bring order to a messy house
Balance your check book

Calling the angels into your home

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!
