Archangel Raziel is the keeper of wisdom, spiritual secrets, and knowledge.
It’s one of the celestial beings that sits next to the divine throne and was tasked with writing one of the most mysterious books in history.
Archangel Raziel only reveals the sacred information to those who genuinely desire to understand the divine principles that govern the universe.
Through its influence, one can become free of subconscious blockages and raise their vibration to stimulate their inner potential.
Within this article, we’ll explore Archangel Raziel’s ability to guide us and how its presence influenced prominent Biblical characters.
Who Is Archangel Raziel And Where Does Its Name Come From
Archangel Raziel is one of the divine entities that hold the secrets of the universe and other planes of existence.
Being part of the 12 major archangels, it sits close to the divine throne alongside Archangel Metatron.
You may find it under many names:
- “Angel of Teachings”;
- “Keeper of All Magic”;
- “Angel of Secrets”;
- “Angel of Mysteries”
- In Hebrew, Raziel roughly translates as “God is my Mystery” or “Mystery of God.” But “Gallitsur” is its actual Hebrew name, which translates as “Revealer of The Rock.”
All these written representations come from Raziel’s connection to Kabbalah, the Jewish book of mysticism. In turn, the Torah, Kabbalah, and the Zohar are a reminiscence of the “Book of Raziel,” which played a vital role in the Old Testament’s outcome.
Because of its position in the celestial hierarchy, Archangel Raziel is often defined as a cherub or ophanim – two of the most powerful categories of divine beings.
Some traditions see this archangel as the leader of the Erelim. This represents the “cavalry” of angelic armies. The Erelims can appear as sturdy beings, tall and handsome, and mounted on pure light steeds.
Archangel Raziel In Religious Texts
Archangel Raziel appears briefly in Kabbalah, Zohar’s esoteric section, and the mystical book of Judaism.
Here we find our archangel in charge of a specific part of the Sephirotic Tree, namely the Chochmah sephirot. This is one of the highest and purest planes of exitance. It corresponds with the divine wisdom that emanates throughout the whole Sephirotic Tree.
Keter is the first sephirot counting from top to bottom and the only one who surpasses Chochmach. Keter represents the infinite divine light, while Chochmach is the wisdom attributed to this endless light.
In the Midrash rabbinical commentaries “Targum Ecclesiastes,” Raziel used to verbally expose the divine knowledge and secrets from Mount Horeb. Each day he would be present and act as a channel between Heaven and Earth, delivering messages from the heavenly kingdom.
The Book Of Archangel Raziel
The book of Archangel Raziel is both a source of wisdom and knowledge as well as a symbolic reference to our potential for channeling divine messages.
This is the “component” that started everything. Each religion, every bit of spiritual knowledge, and all divine messages throughout history emerged from the Book of Raziel.
It holds all of life’s secrets and of God’s kingdom. In addition, it includes magical information for invoking angels, archangels, and other celestial beings.
As long as the person in charge of this book is wise, initiated in the sacred arts, and pure of heart, they can reach unexplored consciousness levels and manifest miracles. It is said that it contains humanity’s past, present, and future and that the secrets within this book are long sought after, even by angels.
Even if interpretations exist, they fail to include the exact information the original book of Raziel does. This happens because it’s more than a physical text but a concept of divine knowledge.
How The Book Of Raziel Came To Be
According to Jewish tradition, Archangel Raziel stands very close to God’s throne. Therefore, it can directly integrate all the knowledge and wisdom from the source.
At God’s request, Raziel placed this information within a book called “Sefer Raziel HaMalach,” which translates as “The Holy Book Of Raziel.”
This text was offered to the primordial divine masculine and feminine concepts under their physical form, Adam and Eve.
After the Garden of Eden banishment, the jealous angels, under the tutelage of Archangel Raziel, took the book and threw it into the ocean. Seeing this, God helped Adam and Eve retrieve the text as it was their spiritual inheritance, and they had a right to have it, regardless of the sin.
The book was passed on through generations until it reached Enoch, who added his own contribution. Then, after Enoch became Archangel Metatron, the Book of Raziel was passed on to Archangel Raphael.
Finally, Raphael gave the book to Noah, intending to help him learn how to build the arc and save the species of this planet during the great flood.
Moreover, Noah knew the secrets of the celestial hierarchies. As a result, he developed a keen interest in the fundamental wisdom of life and the cycles of the universe.
Interestingly enough, the wise healer, Archangel Raphael, was not interested in taking the book and keeping it for himself. Instead, he wanted humankind to benefit from those writings, survive the flood, and thrive. This shows, once again, how Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, Uriel, and Raziel prioritize human evolution over their own interests.
Therefore, Archangel Raziel guides those who wish to learn the secrets of this book toward a spiritual existence that’s in harmony with the “reader’s” vibration level.
How To Recognize Archangel Raziel’s Presence
NOTE: This is from my own experience of connecting to this specific energy.
Archangel Raziel has a relatively neutral stance regarding your past or present life misconducts. However, this neutrality is related to its non-judgmental, calm, and balanced character. It listens, understands, and collects the information you offer before giving an answer.
Raziel will “tell” you what is wrong and suitable for your greater good only when you provide your full consent. It will also communicate the necessary wisdom and the divine messages that resonate with your current vibration level.
Archangel Raziel will take either a masculine or feminine appearance, according to your perception.
Its presence is never intrusive but soothing and brings warm energy to your heart and mind. If Raziel believes you’re not ready to receive the message, it will provide a “notice” that you may follow or disregard. If the latter is true, the archangel will fade until you learn the lesson and ask for another encounter.
Archangel Raziel’s presence will enhance the love, compassion, and feelings of joy toward your partner and loved ones. This happens because it honors relationships, particularly those romantic in nature, as it is one of the guardian angels of this concept.
It can deliver the appropriate messages to help improve your connections as long as you understand that everything is unfolding according to your current vibration level.
How To Use Reiki To Connect With Archangel Raziel
Reiki is, in my opinion, the optimum way of connecting to Archangel Raziel because it enjoys receiving sacred light as a token of goodwill and gratitude.
Sending energy to this divine being will create a harmonious channel through which it will send back all the necessary information required for your evolution.

- Open an interdimensional gateway between you and Archangel Raziel with Cho Ku Rei + Sei He Ki + Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen (+ Dai Ko Myo for level 3 Usui Reiki);

- This process can take 10-15 minutes but stay for as long as you feel like;
Consider adding the following prayer:
“Dear Archangel Raziel, I am channeling pure light toward you as a token of gratitude and welcome. With thy will, please send me all the wisdom, knowledge, and light necessary to heal my physical, emotional, and spiritual layers for my greater good. Teach me how to offer forgiveness, compassion, and love towards myself and the ones dear to me so that we may grow spiritually and become enlightened. Show me how to free myself of negative thoughts and energies and manifest abundance in my daily life.”
Archangel Raziel can help you heal subconscious blockages and strengthen your emotional state. He can guide you towards healing your past and present emotional issues to manifest love and abundance on both the spiritual and material planes of existence.
