Mehiel: An Angel of Contemplation

Mehiel: An Angel of Contemplation & Intelligence

This is an archangel from among the beni elohim, “children of God,” who is said to be a guardian angel and inspirer of learned teachers, orators and preachers, and writers, and all who serve to educate, inform and cultivate human intelligence and knowledge. On account of this Mehiel is said to aide and empower study and contemplation, and among initiates is an angel of God often invoked for the study and contemplation of the Holy Torah and Gospel. As you might suspect, this is among the angels well known to initiate of the Order of Tzafkiel, or those who engage in deep contemplation.

Study and contemplation of the Holy Torah and Gospel is, itself, prayer before the angels and God, and the prayers that arise from study and contemplation Mehiel uplifts to the Throne of Glory, and because of this blessings rain down of those who contemplation with kavvanah-concentration and devekut-cleaving, and at times the spirit of prophecy may come upon them. The divine action of this angel, however, is not isolate to the study and contemplation of Holy Scriptures and Kabbalah, but rather extends into the study and contemplation of all truth, all knowledge, if and when pursued with a good heart and for its own sake, or for the sake of being of benefit to others and uplifting others.

In that Mehiel is associated with study and contemplation, and the drawing out of intelligence from within souls, so he/she is among the angelic guardians and guides within the fifth heaven, Ma’on, the heaven known for the schools of great tzaddikim, prophets and apostles. At times Mehiel is noted for uplifting souls from among the living to study and teach in these heavenly academies in dream and vision, if and when they have the devekut that allows for such journeys in the Spirit of God.

Just as Mehiel helps to empower and deepen study and contemplation, so also this angel of God helps deepen prayer and meditation, empowering deeper kavvanah-concentration in all activities.

Mehiel’s knowledge and understanding extends into the Melchizedek teachings, and the way of primordial meditation and primordial contemplation; hence, knowledge and understanding of the Way of Perfection in the Messiah. In this Mehiel has knowledge of the generation of the Perfect Thunder Intelligence in the Messiah; hence, how the Thunderbolt Illumination is attained.

This is a lofty and holy angel of God, and yet one that is very accessible and very swift to lend spiritual assistance to those who seek to cultivate the human and divine intelligence, in heaven or on earth. As you might imagine, this is an archangelic presence that appears as a self-luminous angelic sage and messenger, one very easy and pleasant to gaze upon.

When Mehiel is invoked, the Name of Yah and Adonai are called upon. One of the sacred chants given for this angel is: Ma-Ha Me-Hee-El.

Peace be with you!

I have a question and contemplation regarding Mehiel. Tau Malachi, since Mehiel is an angel that instructs in academies that exist in vision and dreams and is connected to dreams is he an angel of the Order of Saint Gabriel? If so can you apply the practices regarding dream union and prophetic meditation to him?

Shalom,

Any angel could be said to have a connection with any of the Orders. The Orders are just ways of grouping teachings and practices of similar subjects the tradition.

If you consider Mehiel, rather than the generation of prophecy, Mehiel labors to increase intelligence and knowledge, and by extension understanding and wisdom.

We do not typically take up dream union with angels, but rather with partzufim, or tzaddikim of previous times. If we wish contact with angels in dream we will pray and invoke, and perhaps engage a small ceremony just before bed.

Blessings!
