He Who Sees God

This week, I’m going to try to find out as much as I can about Archangel Camael. He’s not as easily pinpointed as Gabriel or Michael since he was never recognised by the Catholic Church due to lack of a presence in canonised texts.

According to Kabbalistic lore, Camael is one of the 10 Archangels as well as one of the 7 planetary rulers. He rules the planet Mars, the planet of war.

The corresponding day of the week is Tuesday.

The main reason for my own confusion is because Camael’s name has many variations and one of them is Chamuel, which I always believed to be a separate angel. I’ll try to figure out what’s what with that as the week progresses.

To me, Camael is an angel of War and Chamuel is an angel of Love… but Camael is said to be Patron of all who love God… and aren’t all angels beings of love and light? So how can any angel be an ‘Angel of War?’

Told you I was confused!

Have you had a visitation from Camael? I would love to hear from you! Or perhaps you are as confused as I am about the nature and purpose of this angel?

Join me this week as I try to unravel the mystery!

    I have a true story for you. I purchased a book of Angels and read where I could dream and have the dream help me to connect with my angel. The reading warned that sometimes the visitation in a dream can be alarming. The night ensued, and I fell asleep. In the dream, I see a bald, very sallow but rounded man descending stairs wearing nothing but a toga. thought who is this creep in my dream? I then remembered and said if he were an angel to show me his wings. The wings were the most beautiful cornflower blue feathers with rubies on the tips. The next day a candle caught fire on my mantel piece in my bedroom. Luckily, I saw it right away but later read in the book the Camael works with fire and uses rubies and cornflower blue as signs.

    I have a daughter Skyrah who is 22 months now, she was in bed sleeping and i was downstairs in the kitchen tiding as usual. i had a strange feeling a presence not the first time i’ve had it but this time i turn quickly and saw a glowing or shimmering leopard shape coming down the stairs as if trying to hide but not get caught but it was so smooth and gentle and then gone in an instant..
    I told my husband when he got back from work and he just thought i was mad as usual. But I can’t seem to get it out of my head and now that i’ve seen that it could have been an angel it makes more sense.
    I did wonder as have some strange things happen in my life that I know I have them around me.
    Will now have a look for some more information about this angel.
    The pictures are beautiful but my leopard didn’t have wings just the most amazing shimming coat but transparent at the same time.

    I came upon your post on Camael when looking for an image of him for my Psychic Prayer Services. I am a Gnostic, a Pagan that worships all Gods and practices all religions. We view all religions as one religion that was split up by our ancestors eons ago.

    As a high priest I get asked to pray for people and I usually lead online prayer services where I upload a picture and prayer to a specific God or Goddess or spirit to help a person out. Since today was Tuesday plus there seems to be a conflict energy about I decided to pray to Camael.

    But I needed to upload a picture first for the other witches I work with to channel their energy into when doing the Psychic Prayers. I looked on google for a picture but all caught my attention so I asked Camael to send me a sign for the correct image of his to use.

    I looked on google through all the pictures one by one and suddenly when I clicked on this picture I saw that small sphere of light in the lower right hand side grow and appear seemingly out of nowhere. I know it must have been in the picture before but somehow when I first clicked on the picture it was not there.

    It grew and appeared. That’s how I knew this was his image. Camael’s physical sense is eye sight. I’ve spoken to him in visions and meditations before but this was the first time I’d actually seen something physically with my eyes like that.

    To answer your questions all Angels are soldiers of God, even peaceful ones. That’s how they battle evil spirit creatures. All spirits including Angels have a dual nature of positive with negative.

    God created negativity not to harm people. What makes negativity bad is how you use it. Negative energy does have good uses. It can be used to break curses for instance. Camael’s war aspect is like Michael’s : war against those who would harm tbe innocent. There can be no peace without justice first. Otherwise it would be a false peace where one side dominates the other as in an enemy occupation.

    So Camael and Michael are loving Angels simply that when they have no other choice they use the only recourse available to them : war.

    This doesn’t mean they will go around picking fights with demons who aren’t doing anything to anyone (innocent anyway) they do not go around with a chip on their shoulder arrogantly attacking others.

    Fighting is there one last choice.
    I hope this answers your questions

      Thanks Jose! This post is quite old so I had had time to reach the same conclusion :)

        Then your research into Camael bore fruit I see.

        The angels are always keen to give us answers to these types of questions.

        Indeed they are
