I’m not too surprised they lead you down this path, as the archangels similarly guided me to Lucifer. His role in things is rather interesting, as part of what he can do is communicate with beings on all levels of existence. His angelic qualities give him the power of the messenger. He enables communication between the angelic hosts above and the demonic legions below, allowing for greater harmony within your reality.
If I may, I would suggest first working with the archangel Metatron, who is said to be closest to the Divine. While I highly recommend the book I mentioned, I will briefly convey some of Metatron’s powers if you wish to work with the archangel right away.
Metatron is strong with the powers of time, knowledge, and emotional clarity.
Perhaps there is something in your life that you would like to be able to do, but you just can’t ever find the time to do it. Metatron can grant you time for what matters most to you.
Perhaps there is something that you would like to learn. Metatron can grant you understanding.
Perhaps a situation in your life has brought you emotional confusion. Metatron can reveal your true self to you.
The book contains additional words of power that will make your request more clear to Metatron, but here is a simple method for contacting this archangel:
Draw a circle on a piece of paper. If you can, use a bowl or some similar object to trace one. Within this circle draw another, though you will probably have to free-hand this one. Within the inner circle, draw a hexagram. Within the outer ring, write the tetragrammaton (יהוה) however many times feels right to you. If you do not like the idea of using this Divine Name due to the association with the Abrahamic religions, consider it like this:
Whatever your particular conception of Divinity is, we’re all talking about the same thing, just in different ways. The archangels respond the best to this particular Name, and this Name is just a part of the greater being that is Divinity.
Returning to the sigil construction, write the name of Metatron (מטטרון) (use the Hebrew, it’s more effective than English) within the center of the hexagram. During the ritual, scan over the Divine Names first, then vibrate EE-AH-OH-EH three times. Next scan over Metatron’s Name, then call to Metatron three times. You now make your request, saying:
“Oh, mighty Archangel Metatron, I ask that you…”
Then, thank the archangel for the magick, and show Metatron your gratitude. The angels do not care much for material offerings, but they feast upon your gratitude. Feel grateful for what Metatron has already done for you, and the archangel will know what to do.
Sing again the name Metatron three times as a way of saying thank you. Then bid Metatron depart, saying, “As you, magnificent archangel Metatron, have come in peace, go now in peace. It is done.”
If you enjoy what this archangel can do for you, I cannot recommend that book enough. There is great power within its pages.
