Archaeon Azrael is first and foremost the Angel of Transition and is sometimes known as the Angel of Death. Death is of course just one state of transition and we have many transitions, both into physical life and into non-physical life, plus of course transitions or changes when we are within those states as well. Because he is connected with all transitions and thus all occasions of change he is also an Angel of the Akasha, a Master of the Akashic Records and the Angel of Spirit, who monitors the state and location of our Spirit bodies regardless of our form or Dimension. Azrael also embodies the Golden Planet and sponsors all lost souls who go or are taken there for healing and self-realisation. This appears to be a place of what we call “rehabilitation”, where souls can be held safely in a place of isolation whilst reviewing and coming to terms with their lives. He has this to say about this realm: “The planet is made up of the core of my being. My purpose is transition – change from one state to another. All those who enter the planet are able to see all things from all aspects. To some it is the worst punishment they may perceive, to others blessed relief. As they understand and come to terms with the things that they have done, they change and transform themselves back to a state of Grace, from which they may once more return.”
Azrael may also be known as Azrail, Izrail, Ishmael, Azreil or Ashrail. As Ishmael he is the Angel of Ascension and the Keeper of the Door. He tells me that he has many names and identities and his energies have been and are connected as a guiding conscience to many Avatars and Founders of the world’s Faiths. He was a guiding influence behind Ishmael, who was behind the foundation of the Islamic faith and was also the guiding influence behind Jesus, who was behind the foundation of the Christian faith. This is reflected through Azrael’s twin flame who was guiding influence to Mary of Bethany (Magdalene) and Jesus’ twin flame. He said: “You know me now as many forms, gentle and commanding; strong and weak. When transformation is needed, call upon me in the form that you need me, and do not be surprised by what you receive.” His name “Azrael” means “whom God helps”. The colours we associate with him are black and silver. He and his twin flame, Magdalena, the Lady Mercy have an etheric retreat over the Black Mountains on the borders of England and Wales and an etheric focus that constantly revolves around the Earth on the cusp of night and day / darkness and Light.
As a Master of the Akashic records Azrael oversees our recording of our lives and the detailing of our karmic debts incurred and settled. He points out that he does not make the records himself, but that each of us writes our own Akashic record. It is not for any other Being to record our deeds for us. Each of us will always record events truthfully and accurately – for it is our God-Self that makes the record, and as such we naturally act from an incorruptible place of Truth and non-judgemental Love. (There would be no point in being untruthful, for the records are for our own benefit, helping us to plan subsequent lifetimes and learning experiences). The records are automatically adjusted as and when karmic debts are repaid or balanced as if that were the original event – in reality time does not of course exist, and so the concept of past / future cannot apply, for there is only ever the “now”. The Akashic “librarians” and overseers are there to ensure that we are writing the truth in our own book. They also act to bring all records into harmony so that if our actions affect others’ records theirs may be adjusted or updated accordingly. They also ensure that the “right” people access the “right” records, and that access is only permitted to the levels of knowledge or understanding that are appropriate or necessary for each one to know at that particular point in their time line – on a “need to know” basis!
In the Kabbalah Azrael represents all the pathways that are hidden. Within the Tree of Life we find pathways that are identified and which link one sphere to another, representing the transitory energies that take us between one state and another. I feel that there are also pathways that are hidden from view – the invisible ways that we find only through our own personal search for our own truth and reality.
The realm in which the sphere of Da’at exists is that most closely associated with the human condition, and is an abyss that separates Spirit from non-Spirit; the real from the illusionary; the potential from the manifest. Below it is only duality: above it all dualities are reconciled. All matters within our lives that are unresolved or unfounded exist within this realm, and we cannot cross this realm (from non-Spirit to Spirit – i.e. Ascend) without all these things being fully resolved. Da’at is the sphere of knowledge – but of knowledge before true understanding. It exists outside of space, time and dimension. It is also the sphere of generation and regeneration, and as such has within it all the potentials that we have to transform and become pure Spirit. To cross the abyss – the realm in which Da’at exists – we must use the hidden pathways of Azrael and be prepared to leave everything behind and give up all that we think we are. Azrael told me: “I offer my presence at the edge of the abyss. I will not take your hand but would ask you, when the time is right, to have the courage and the strength to simply step out and follow me across the great Divide between physicality and Spirit. And when we reach the other side and you are in your transformed and perfect state, you will see me as I am and I will welcome you through the doorway with love and with gratitude.” In a way this has to be the ultimate transition!
