Our next visitation brings us to Archangel Jophiel (also written as Iophiel or Zaphiel), the angel of Creative power and Illumination. His name means “beauty of God” and he sometimes appears as a very tall angel (over 9 feet) wearing a yellow cloak and carrying a flaming sword. Jophiel is another guardian over the Tree of Knowledge, alongside Uriel. He is the archangel of artists, craftspeople, researchers, inventors, builders, film-makers, bakers and photographers.
Jophiel's ruling planet is Mercury and the element of Air. His day is Wednesday and his color is deep yellow. Scents given to Jophiel are lavender, orange, myrrh, and lemongrass. Crystals associated with archangel include Ametrine, Smokey Quartz and Rutilated Quartz.
Call upon archangel Jophiel when you need help learning something new, especially with spiritual matters. When you need inspiration, Jophiel is the one to ask. He also helps us realize untapped abilities we never even knew we had. Jophiel can “unjumble” the chaos that sometimes overwhelms our minds, bringing about clearer thoughts and more organized ways of thinking. Jophiel also aides those who fight for environmental issues and wish to bring about change in the world.
Ametrine is actually an usual combination crystal that is composed of Amethyst and Citrine. It is purple and yellow and helps to increase creativity as well as improve your focus. It can help with spiritual awareness, aiding in angelic and spirit guide communication (even animal spirit guides). Great for workaholics, Ametrine helps rebalance your life between home, work and spirit. In healing practices, Ametrine reduces cravings, such as nicotine, and replaces negative energy with positive.
Smokey Quartz is a translucent, smoky brown variety of quartz crystal. Despite the fact that it is linked to Saturn and the Earth element, Smoky Quartz is associated with archangel Jophiel because of its ability to release negative energy from your body back into the earth, making you feel more “in the moment” and at peace. It brings optimism and protects you from electromagnetic fields. It is said to relieve both physical and mental blocks. Smokey quartz can also alleviate lower back, hip and leg pain.
Rutilated Quartz (see also Archangel Uriel) is clear quartz with yellow bands, or rutiles on the inside of the crystal. It a crystal of the Sun and the Fire element, but its link to Jophiel is in the way it encourages us to explore new possibilities. If you're looking to make a change in your life, Rutilated quartz will enable you to unleash all those untapped abilities, therefore letting you open yourself up to new opportunities and ideas. It is an excellent crystal to use when calling angels and spirit guides.
Next week, we will post our next article which talks about Crystals that can help you to connect to Archangel Zadkiel.
