We don’t know a lot about Archangel Sandaphon’s origins, as he figures prominently in the mystical literary traditions of Rabbinic Judaism and early Christianity, notably in the Midrash, Talmud, and Kabbalah. He is one of the two archangels who walked the earth as humans; he is thought to be the Old Testament prophet Elijah or the twin brother of Archangel Metatron – the prophet Enoch.
He is always illustrated as extremely tall, his head reaches heaven, he is a Sarim (angelic prince) and a master of music. Archangel Sandalphon is designated “the left-hand feminine cherub of the Ark” and we find him as the leader of seventh heaven, working tirelessly with Archangel Michael to defeat Samael (the dark angel).
As Archangel Sandalphon worked the earth he is an excellent companion to those who are dedicated to self-discovery and personal growth. He works to answer our prayers and brings the light beings, spirit guides and guardians needed to help us. He helps us to word our prayers to ensure we get the right outcomes for our and the greater good, showing us the possibilities that are available that we would often miss. He is also blessed with a sense of humour from his time on earth! Due to his association with earth Archangel Sandaphon is often called upon for planetary healing and is drawn close to us when we ask for cures for global warming pollution etc.
He is also known as the musician of the angels, offering help and inspiration to composers and musicians. He works with all kind of sound therapists and uses music to help us clear negative energies and bring calm when we need it.
This archangel also is associated with the tree of life and therefore guardian of nature elements, healing of the Earth; he is particularly helpful with grounding, distance healing and contact with earth energies.
Archangel Sandalphon is often associated with the natural colours of the earth and crystals, he can be called upon to improve our physical vitality, use healing energy appropriately, strengthen the immune system and works with children to express negative pent up emotions. Emotionally he will help us the emotional maturity, lets us find the real problem and take responsibility for ourselves, he eases stress and dependency on alcohol, food, tobacco, drugs etc.
