Archangel Metatron

Force idea: " I am united with the source of all goodness, love and creativity."

Symbolism: Metatron appears as the most earthly of Archangels, as he was once a wise and virtuous man whom God took up into Heaven. He is richly attired and bolds a pen in one hand as he records our deeds in the Book of Life. He has the ability to help us know the true measure of things.

Angelic realm: Archangel of the Heaven of Form

Angelic function: Recorder of the Book of life and scribe for all our deeds

Gifts for earth: He helps us to find the proper measure for all we do; he acts as witness to the good we do and the love we give; he helps us realize our potential as loving and worthwhile human beings

Metatron is the only angel within the heavenly spheres who was once human. He was known as Enoch and was the seventh Patriarch after Adam. It was written that he 'walked with God' and was taken up into Heaven where he was made an Archangel. There is speculation in Jewish scripture that he is the Shekinah, the angel who led the children of Israel out of the wilderness. It is thought too that it was Metatron who stopped Abraham from sacrificing his son Isaac to God.

Metatron is also known as the first and last of the Archangels and is variously called the Chancellor of Heaven, the Angel of the Covenant and the King of the Angels. His heavenly function is to supervise the recording of all our deeds in the Book of Life.

He is charged with sustaining human life and acts as the bridge between the Divine and mankind. We can seek counsel from him by asking him to help us find the proper measure for every action we take in our lives. At one level this means helping us find the balance between what we give out and what we keep for ourselves. This enables us to maintain well-defined boundaries and thus keep a clear sense of self, so neccssary if we are to succeed in fulfilling our potential within the world of form.

Metatron can help us find the proper measure in love, work and recreation so that we live balanced, healthy lives, rich in harmony and serenity. He will also be a witness to the good we do, perhaps those acts of love or kindness not recognized by others. He can also help us when we have put effort and toil into making something work, whatever it is: it could be anything from trying to make a relationship work, losing weight, or giving up an addictive or damaging habit, to throwing ourselves fully into a cause or team effort.

We can pray to The Archangel Metatron to guide our efforts and to help us find the right measure for our output and activities. We can ask Metatron in our meditation to assist us in knowing when 'enough is enough', or when we need to do more for ourselves or others.
