Archangel Jophiel is the divine entity of beauty within oneself and the outer world.
Although archangels are genderless, Jophiel is usually depicted as a beautiful female celestial presence that wields the divine sword of wisdom.
She is non-canonical but still recognized within the Jewish texts as the angel of beauty, wisdom, and understanding.
As with most divine entities, Jophiel represents a concept and an archetype of manifestation within the physical world.
Let’s dive in and explore Archangel Jophiel’s spiritual role throughout history.
Who Is Archangel Jophiel
Archangel Jophiel is one of the 12 major archangels that govern the spiritual dimensions of the Sephirotic Tree.
Jophiel can be translated as “God is my beauty” in Hebrew.

The association between archangel Jophiel and the concept of spiritual beauty extends beyond what our physical eyes perceive.
Jophiel represents the divine image of splendor that each one of us has the potential to attain.
More precisely, Jophiel enables us to see everything through a divine perspective instead of focusing on the unwanted aspects within oneself. The shadow and light sides within us have their own beauty if we change our perception of “good” and “bad.”
Jophiel will bring out the best within our spirit, soul, and mind as long as we desire to change for the better, heal our imbalances, and grow from a spiritual perspective.
In other words, Jophiel helps us see ourselves through the eyes of the divine creator instead of judging our past and present mistakes.
NOTE: Archangel Haniel also holds this attribute as he sees us through our divine potential while overlooking our imbalances.
Archangel Jophiel defines nature’s perfect shapes, including plants, animals, and humans. She “stabilizes” our future physical features before entering this world.
What Is Archangel Jophiel Known For
Archangel Jophiel is a source of inspiration for artists of different sorts, such as writers, singers, sculptors, painters, and even intellectuals.
Her role is to guide you toward developing the optimum artistic skill for you in three distinct ways:
- By placing the necessary energy and information at your inner self level at birth, to manifest a unique talent in this life;
- She will support your efforts to improve your craft and offer the necessary direction so you can make the best decisions according to the divine laws;
- Even if you are not born with a specific talent, archangel Jophiel can provide you with the spiritual gift related to the activity you wish to partake in. To benefit from this offering, you’ll need to be worthy of receiving but also ask for it. Being in the service of others and enjoying your work are some ways of informing Jophiel that you are committed to this goal;
Her assistance is not limited to artistic endeavors. Archangel Jophiel will also be there at your request when you’re creating Reiki projects or vision boards.
She’s more than willing to offer a hand as long as your goals are in tune with the divine will.
Moreover, she will help integrate the required information to improve these projects and align them with your spiritual path.
What Does Archangel Jophiel Look Like
Archangel Jophiel is usually depicted as a beautiful female presence that symbolizes an extension of the divine feminine concept in all its glory and might. Her wings are slightly darker pink, while her robe is either emerald green or light blue.
It is said that when archangel Jophiel is around, there is a predominant rose-like scent in the room.
Her presence emanates love, joy, optimism, and compassion, while her aura’s energy bursts with bright yellow and fuchsia colors.
Although there are quite a few physical representations of archangel Jophiel, the one element that stands out is her large flaming sword. This is a symbolic reference to divine protection toward humanity.
After Adam and Eve’s departure from the Garden of Eden, archangel Jophiel was in charge of granting no human access to this sacred place of light, knowledge, and wisdom without being worthy and spiritually prepared.
Only when one is entirely in tune with its higher self and the divine source of light can one transcend any temptation that deviates from enlightenment.
So, in a way, the flaming sword of archangel Jophiel is an element of divine wisdom and protection. It’s a symbolic “obstacle” that prevents us from harming ourselves.
Archangel Jophiel In Religious Texts
Even though archangel Jophiel is not present in the Bible, a few texts consider her the angel responsible for expelling Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden.
From here on, Jophiel becomes the keeper of the Tree of Life – the symbolic structure that contains all knowledge of good and evil. The Tree of Life resides within the Garden of Eden. Now Jophiel protects it with her flaming sword of divine wisdom at all costs.
Archangel Jophiel In Zohar And Kabbalah
Archangel Jophiel appears as the angel of the seventh heaven, belonging to the Cherubim order of divine beings. She is usually present next to archangel Metatron.
She is the chief entity of the celestial order of Thrones within the divine realm, believed to be in charge of over 53 legions of angels.
Even though Jophiel is known for bringing beauty and harmony, we shouldn’t take her kindness for granted. That’s because she is one of the three chief archangels, alongside Michael and Zadkiel, that engages in battles against evil.
As the angel of beauty and wisdom, Jophiel is often associated with the archangel Raziel. Therefore, in some Kabbalah writings, she replaces Raziel as the governor of the Chokhmah sephirot.
According to some scholars, archangel Jophiel appears when the Torah is read on Sabbath, in Jewish traditions, to supervise the interpretation of the Jewish Holy Book.
Signs That Archangel Jophiel Is With You
When you invoke the presence of archangel Jophiel, you’ll feel peace of mind, clarity, and wisdom, as well as a warm light governing your life.
Yet, never underestimate her divine kindness because she can prove extremely strict, even judgmental, in the battle against evil.
Jophiel is there to help you see beyond self-imposed or projected mental obstacles.
She’ll lighten up your heart and mind together with the rest of the archangels.
How To Connect With Archangel Jophiel
Considering her presence brings inspiration, creativity, and determination, you can ask for assistance and support whenever you feel stuck and cannot find answers.
Find a quiet moment of the day and turn off any distractions. You can play some relaxing music, light a candle, and incense. Sit in a chair with your back straight and place your feet on the ground and parallel to each other. Your palms should be on your lap, facing upward.
- Start the meditation by closing your eyes and relaxing;
- As you are listening to your favorite high-vibrational tunes, enter the Alpha State of mind. Feel free to use any other breathing technique you know to empty your mind;
- Visualize a door of any size, color, or form opening in front of you;
- Continue visualizing yourself activating the Cho Ku Rei Reiki symbol (or Harth from Karuna Reiki) on the door;
- Begin to send light to the symbol and, together with the door, watch how they begin to glow;
- Then the door slowly opens so you can enter the space that’s revealing behind it;
- This is where you’ll find archangel Jophiel’s extension you resonate with and is in accordance with your current vibration level. It may also be your personal angel or a Reiki spirit guide that is in connection to Jophiel;
- Offer gratitude for sharing the same room. Ask for guidance in your healing as well as how you can be in service to divinity;
- Find out what is expected from you or which aspects of your life require more attention;
- Once you finish the conversation, ask if you can hug her. If the answer is yes, offer all your love and compassion and be open to receiving the same;
- The next step is to slowly return through the door and leave everything behind;
- Visualize yourself descending into your physical body;
- Open your eyes and resume your daily activities without rushing;
It’s also good practice to reflect on this experience and act upon the advice you have just received.
Reiki is a wonderful way to channel energy toward this archangel with the explicit intention of offering gratitude. Once you establish a connection, it’s time to ask for guidance for your greater good and those involved.
- Activate your palms using Cho Ku Rei + Sei He Ki + Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen + Dai Ko Myo (if you have the level 3 Usui Reiki attunement). Add other Reiki symbols if you have attunements in different systems;
- Activate your main chakras and their back projections with Cho Ku Rei + Sei He Ki;
- Activate your palms using Cho Ku Rei + Sei He Ki + Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen + Dai Ko Myo (if you have the level 3 Usui Reiki attunement) in front of you. Consider other Reiki symbols if you wish;
- Begin channeling energy to Jophiel for 10-15 minutes and ask her to show you the optimum approach for your situation;
- Do this for several days in a row, for as long as you feel it’s necessary;
The Benefits Of Using Reiki
Archangel Jophiel can help you recover the lost parts of your soul from traumas, sufferings, or even regrets.
Moreover, once your soul is whole again, Jophiel enables you to cleanse and re-activate its beneficial elements. These can be programs related to abundance, health, and well-being on all levels.
These outcomes are very similar to what we can do through Reiki.
Therefore, the spiritual practice and our protagonist work together well because they can focus the universal energy to help manifest your intention.
