Raziel, whose name means 'Secrets of the Lord", is an archangel within the teachings of Jewish mysticism, of the Kabbalah of Judaism, who is the "Keeper of Secrets" and the "Angel of Mysteries." In some teachings he is claimed to be a Cherub, as well as the chief of the Ophanim and is described as having blue wings, a glowing yellow aura around his head and wearing a grey robe which appears to have liquid-like properties.
He is associated with the Sephira Chokmah in Briah, one of the four worlds of Kabbalistic theory. His famous Sefer Raziel HaMalach ("Book of Raziel the Angel") contains all secret knowledge and is considered to be a book of "magic." He stands close by God's throne, and therefore hears and writes down everything that is said and discussed. He purportedly gave the book to Adam and Eve after they ate from the forbidden Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, which resulted in their expulsion from the Garden of Eden, so the two could find their way back "home" and better understand their God. Raziel's fellow angels were deeply disturbed by this, and as such, stole the book from Adam and threw it into the ocean. God Himself decided not to punish Raziel, but instead, retrieved the book and returned it to Adam and Eve.
According to some sources, the book was passed on through the generations to Enoch (believed to have later become the angel Metatron), who may have incorporated his own writings into the tome. From Enoch, the archangel Raphael gave it to Noah, who used the wisdom within to build Noah's Ark. The Book of Raziel was last known to be in the hands of Solomon. It has since disappeared.
in that make-believe place where anything can happen
there was an Archangel who went by the name Ra-Zi-El.
This is how he got his name . . .
He took the letters Ra from his days in Egypt as Ra the sun god!
Then he took the letters - Zi - as Z is his frequency signature Z - The Hourglass - Time!
Finally he took the letters El as that was his feminine aspect - counterpart - Ellie
the only one in the magical kingdom who enjoyed playing with him
especially as Raziel had the biggest Rod in the Kingdom!
And so he (Z) became known at the Archangel Raziel!
One day Raziel was 'hanging out' with the guys . . .
when he got bored.
Off he flew to join his beautiful consort. . .
to have some fun!
They decided to write a story ...
they always write stories together -
and called it 'The Book of the Archangel Raziel
[Raziel has a powerful ego!]
The book would be filled with metaphors about
the creation of a race they called 'Humanity'.
In order for this race to figure out the metaphors there would be keys
encoded within each character in the story within their DNA.
Creation would be based on a geometric blueprint called Sacred Geometry.
From the egg came the flower which blossomed into the tree of life.
Some of the other archangels took an interest in what
they were creating and asked to be part of creation.
This is how the roles were divided up...
