Like Metatron, Sandalphon’s name ends in -on instead of -el, signifying his origin as a human prophet. Sandalphon was the biblical prophet Elijah, who ascended at the end of his human life, just as Metratron did. Interestingly, Metatron presides over the entrance to the spheres of the Kabbalah’s Tree of Life, and Sandalphon presides over its exit. In Sandalphon’s human existence, Elijah was the one Jesus was compared to when he asked his disciples, “Who do the people say I am?” This may be because Elijah was said to be a precursor of the coming Messiah.
When To Call On Archangel Sandalphon
The functions associated with Sandalphon include being an intercessor for prayers between humans and God, helping determine the gender of a coming child, and acting as a patron to musicians. The Talmud and the Kabbalah describe Sandalphon as a deliverer of prayers from Earth to Heaven. This may be because of his legendary height, which is said to span from Heaven to Earth. Many musicians have benefited from calling upon Archangel Sandalphon for musical help. I frequently ask him to assist my guitar playing, or when I’m learning a new song (especially a challenging one).Sandalphon’s gracious and powerfully gentle presence can support you in developing a closer connection to God and your spirituality. He will help you feel the love of the Divine and the security of knowing that you are watched over and cared for.
