We have already talked a little about the sacred name of God and using it. But this using of names is not strictly a Jewish principle. But this was a strong belief there.
How does this work on a functional level?
Let us consider this in light of the Melchizedek tradition. Remember that is one of the schoolmasters to clarify truth. We have already noted that in some of the ancient pre christian cultures the angels were know by the term fairies.
This tradition has a long list of fairies [angels] that are named. With each of these there is supposed to be a function that they specialize in. If you are looking for a healing, you might call on the fairy queen Aine. That is her primary work.
In the pantheon of Norse demigods [angels] there is a goddess of healing. Her name is Eir. When those people were sick they would call on her to help them through the problem.
The Greek pantheon had also a goddess of healing. That name has become a common modern word. Her name was Panacea, the goddess of universal remedy for what ails you.
There are of course many more example. Here though we can say that many people through the ages have called on these entities for and and found relief. There are too many examples of this phenomenon just to be coincidence.
The point here is that with the naming of the angels and archangels the vocalizing of the exactly right name is not as important as call in the assistance of the archangel of intended purpose. If you call on Eir, Aine, Panacea, or the archangel Raphael, who deals with healing arts, it will all be the same in effect in your belief. As Jesus said to the healed woman, “Thy faith has made you whole.” They are, under different names, the singular ministering spirit, archangel that helps in healing situations.
One example here among the archangel proper is the Archangel Jophiel. This angel is also sometimes known under the name of Dina. Call him by either name and expect the same results of a ministering servant in his field of service.
This maybe in partly because the work of these archangels are in getting you to focus your intention and you are thereby activating the correct vibration associated with you intent.
is a great healer in the Chinese tradition of QiGong. When I was learning from him his Spring Forest Qigong method, he taught that when you are doing a healing that you need to bring someone from outside into the healing. That is to say when you are doing what needs to be done you call on a spirit to come in assist in the heal. This is kind of like the the concept of turning it over to the Lord in the Christian Tradition.
He further said that it makes no difference if it is Buddha, Krishna, Mother Teresa, Christ, the Holy Spirit, Allah, an angel, or some other numinous spirit. You can even call in the spirit of a living healer like himself.
What was he doing in this? He was taking the healing out of the ego and turning it over to the metaphysical realm. He was taking focus off your masculine doing and bringing in the feminine receiving. The yin and yang if you will. There are many ways that this is expressed in different cultures, but it is a universal way of manifesting your desires.
In Christian doctrine you can not work your way into salvation. But then in another place it say by works are you saved and not by faith only. The key word is only.
When you keep doing, doing only, to manifest your intent you will fail. When you keep believing, believing only, you will fail in you quest to manifest whatever it is. You need both for consistent manifesting success, masculine doing and feminine receiving. In the Kabalah they call this the principle of gender.
When you call on an archangel to assist you in your endeavor, you are intrinsically saying, “I am doing what I can; I am readying to receive. Now you come and take up the slack.” You are doing and receiving combined. And it is that mental process of calling in the outside help that brings the yin and yang together. Work and faith, that is not works only. That is not faith or grace [gift] only. It is balanced manifesting.
When I was studying folklore, one of the classes that I took was taught by a Wiccan priestess. I was interested to hear about their pantheon. Then she showed us some of their basic rituals to manifest.
They would do these intricate rituals and invoke the god or goddess [archangel or angel] to help them to manifest the intention. Then they would live their life in belief as if it was so. They were in the ritual establishing the faith that the numinous spirit invoked was helping them as they moved toward their intended goal. That process worked well for them.
By whatever name you call the archangel in to bring about whatever desire you wish to manifest you are doing in effect the same general process as the Wiccans. Properly understood and applied you set your goal, head that way, and call in the archangel for to do service. The more you completely feel their presence, the stronger your manifesting abilities work as you move into your goal. That is the less the doubt the stronger the manifestation.
