Raziel the Archangel

Archangel Raziel

Archangel Raziel is "Keeper of Secrets" and the "Angel of Mysteries." The Hebrew word "Raziel" means "Secret(s) of God." Raz- means "secret" and -i el means "of God."

Raziel is the chief of the Angelic order Ophanim (Thrones/Wheels). He is an archangel of metaphysical teachings and is described as tall,having blue wings, a glowing yellow aura around his head and wearing a grey robe which appears to have liquid-like properties.

He is associated with the Sephira Chokmah in Kabbalistic Tree of Life. Raziel works so closely with the Creator that he knows all the secrets of the universe and how it operates.

He wrote a Book called The Book of the Angel Raziel and gave this book to Adam when he was expelled from the garden of eden, so the two could find their way back "home" and better understand their God. The Book of the Holy Angel Raziel explains everything from Astrology of the planets in our solar system to the creative life energy of this earth.

The book was then handed down from father to son until it became the property of Enoch, who gave it out as his own work, calling it The Book of Enoch. Enoch passed Raziel's book to his son, Mathusala, who gave it to his son, Lamach, who gave it to his son, Noah. Noah gained the knowledge to build the ark from Raziel's book.

Solomon was a later owner of Raziel's book and he learned from it great knowledge and power in magic. In the Book of the Archangel Raziel, in the middle section, there occurs a secret writing explaining the 1,500 keys to the mystery of the universe.

In the Kabbalah Raziel rules sphere 2 - Chokmah, which means "Wisdom".
