Who is Archangel Metatron?
Archangel Metatron is also known as the Angel of Ascension. Some sources claim he is the highest of the Archangels, though I think in reality it is more the case that he facilitates incarnate humans experiencing the highest vibrations possible. He is a wonderful Archangel to call upon, therefore, for help with spiritual development and learning. He is also known as the Archangel who watches over indigo and crystal souls, and sensitive children in general, helping them channel their sensitivities for good and without fear. He is one of only two Archangels – the other being Archangel Sandalphon – who is thought to have had a human incarnation on earth, as the Biblical prophet and scribe, Enoch. This association with writing and wisdom means that he can be a great ally for writers, especially those seeking to spread, clarify and present spiritual truths. The meaning of his name is disputed between mystics, though of all those I have read the one I feel resonates best is “He who works from behind the Throne” (of God). This fits with his status as the Archangel who can bring humankind to the highest possible vibration. He is sometimes known as Lord Metatron.
How to work with Archangel Metatron
Archangel Metatron is associated with the Kabbala, the Tree of Life and sacred geometric shapes – none more so than the so-called “Metatron cube” or, as I prefer, “Metatron star” – the 3D merkaba or Star of David, otherwise known as the ascension vehicle. His healing is sent in the form of the vibration of these sacred geometric shapes entering your system at your crown chakra and flowing through all chakras for perfect balance. When you ask Metatron for his healing or to raise your spiritual vibration, this is what he will essentially do, so it can help to visualise a shape you resonate with travelling through your chakras, but is not essential. You can ask for healing of one chakra or all chakras. Remember you have chakras beyond the seven basic ones we know the most about – the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown – so asking for healing of all chakras can lead to intense spiritual experiences. You can also meditate with or carry one of the sacred geometric shapes to assimilate its energy and Metatron’s healing. Sacred geometric shapes include the platonic solids or basic building blocks of life – the cube, tetrahedron, octrahedron, icosahedron and dodecahedron – but also others including the sphere, pyramid, and 3D heart and cross forms.
Automatic writing is another way to work with Archangel Metatron to access his high spiritual wisdom, as he engages with writers and will channel inspirations through them. You can sit before a notepad and pen or a computer and ask Archangel Metatron for his messages, or ask him specific questions. Then write whatever comes. It does take some practice and it may help to work with sacred geometric shapes simultaneously to align with his energy while you are practising this skill, or use Archangel Metatron / Angel of Ascension spray which can be obtained from a number of makers and retailers online. A cluster of clear quartz, celestite and/or apophyllite may also help with this process. You can also ask him for help with writing in general.
How does Archangel Metatron respond?
(or what signs to look out for)
This is an interesting one, because how you perceive Metatron’s response will depend a lot on your own awareness, the attention you pay to your intuition, and your current spiritual vibration. If you don’t trust your intuition or don’t tend to get gut “feelings” or “hunches”, you will almost certainly perceive little at the time of asking for help. If you’re new to working with angels you may not spot his signs as readily as you would with Archangel Michael or Archangel Sandalphon, for example, who seem more inclined to respond in earthly ways. However, you will, steadily and gradually, see an improvement in the arena of life you have asked for his help with…a small step at a time, initially, and then you may notice a “snowball” effect or a sudden leap. If you are more developed spiritually, you may perceive sensations at the time, for example tingling, warmth or breezes in the chakra areas, or a sense of peace in the heart centre, or an absolute knowing that your call has been heard. You may experience an incredible influx of energy, or alternatively feel like hibernating and introspecting, because Metatron has asked you to look inside for your answers.
You know you’ve had a “calling card” from Metatron if you’ve had a very unusual, unexpected answer to something you’ve been asking for his help with. He likes to think outside the box, that’s for sure – and he can shift energy on the blueprint level with such powerful force that sometimes something you’ve asked for help with will manifest all at once and it can be quite a shock! His other signature response is a cryptic clue towards your goal: a minor opportunity, meeting a contact who could potentially be a help but you’re not quite sure how, spotting a tool or crystal you resonate with and know you “have to have” – I have had this happen twice, with my selenite shard and my platonic solids wand. Sometimes, he prompts earth angels – caring friends or family or sometimes complete strangers – to bring you a gift. This is always the sort of gift you receive just at the right time, something that’s perfect for your growth just then, and often out of the blue – at the subtle level, the gift is from Archangel Metatron as well as from the sender.
Metatron can also call to you with the well-known 11:11 sign. Many people worldwide have experienced repetitive sightings of the number 11:11 on clocks, tickets, etc. 11:11 is the most powerful of master numbers, is known as a DNA activation code for the ascension process, and also “The Gates of Metatron”. You know you are awakening if you begin to see 11:11 over and over again. It will usually then stop for a time, but recur whenever you are making a large leap forward spiritually. It is lucky to see 11:11, and some people thank Metatron, the angels in general, God or the universe, and/or send up a prayer or make a wish when they see it. You do not need to have asked for Metatron’s help to see it, though it can be one of his “signs”. More often than not, Metatron calls people with this sign when they are beginning to be ready for awakening to their true spiritual nature. Metatron can also appear in dreams particularly to crystal and indigo souls during the childhood, usually in human form as a kindly friend, confidant and teacher.
What else should you know about Archangel Metatron?
Archangel Metatron can call to you out of the blue, without you ever having asked him for help. However he is equally willing to give help and healing to anyone who approaches him – he asks me to tell people not to be put off by his branding as the highest of Archangels, and to remember that he has walked the earth and has much empathy and interest in us humans so he is by no means one of the elusive Archangels. Actually, when you get to know him, he has a very interesting personality and often seems slightly amused at the human thought process, our actions and decisions. He also seems to enjoy using human sayings, cliches and street talk when putting across ideas to us – he is very in tune with the earthly zeitgeist of the day. He can see the bigger picture, and he knows that we often sweat the small stuff while missing the really important stuff. The more we can be consciously aware and show gratitude for the really important stuff in our lives, the closer we are to ascension.
Be aware that if you are called to research Metatron further, you will notice there is disagreement surrounding whether he incarnated as a human, probably due to the widespread belief that angels are on a completely separate path of evolution to humans and the two cannot cross over. However, channellings I have had in the past suggest that in exceptional cases there are instances where angels can incarnate in human form, and humans can become angels-in-training – and with the vibrational shifts on earth just now, this phenomena becomes increasingly possible. The way he puts it to me is that he has walked the earth, though whether that fits with our understanding of “incarnation” is another matter. This is one of the fascinations for me about Metatron: there is always another mystery to solve, and he is not at all keen on divulging all of the information in one fell swoop – he seems to drop in an extra bit of information incrementally as he perceives you are ready for it. Therefore I would encourage you that if you feel drawn to working with Metatron on your spiritual development, you make a commitment to this and follow it through, developing that relationship over the long-term. Otherwise, you may well miss the complete picture or the final piece of the puzzle.
I recommend the Crystalinks page on Metatron for further reading, which also has visual representations of the Metatron cube.
