As Salt-N-Pepa says, let’s talk about sex baby! Enter Archangel Zaphkiel – The Archangel of Passion and Ecstasy! If you’re looking to remove a connection to a past love, open a path to find a sacred love, or to simply enhance your sensuality, self-expression, ecstasy, and yes, S-E-X, call upon Archangel Zaphkiel to rekindle your fire!
Let me start by saying, there is nothing wrong with discovering passion, intimacy and sex – either with yourself, someone you connect to, or just for sex’s sake! For far too long, we have lived under the judgmental thumb of religious movements, outdated societal “norms”, and misguided, repressed humans who’ve convinced the masses that denying our natural sexuality is the only way to be moral and good. It is time to shed these antiquated, and quite frankly, harmful, notions about what is right and wrong, good and bad, with our sexual desires. So let’s continue our unveiling of Archangel Zaphkiel!
Archangel Zaphkiel – The Angel of Passion
First and foremost, Archangel Zaphkiel is not to be confused with Archangel Zadkiel – The Archangel of Surrender. Zaphkiel is all about connecting us with true compassion, sensuality, and ecstasy through our sacred loves and romances. Some even refer to Zaphkiel as the “alchemist of life” filling you with compassion, love, romance, grace, and gratitude.
Archangel Zaphkiel not only assists with your romantic and sexual endeavors but also in filling you with love and confidence for yourself. As your self-love and confidence grow, so too will your self-discovery of sexual desires. Thus, opening your heart and clearing a path to find your sacred self and romantic partner.
Let’s surrender to our true passionate nature and enjoy all the joy and ecstasy sensual, sexual encounters provide. There’s a reason why orgasms alter our energetic states. Sex is meant to raise our vibrations, adjust our frequencies, to support the elevated paths we chose to pursue in this lifetime. Allow Archangel Zaphkiel to guide you on this passionate journey.
For anyone who has been a victim of sexual assault or abuse, call upon Zaphkiel to help you find value in your body once again. He is wonderful for body image healing, sensation healing, and releasing fear of being “in the body”.
Some also refer to Archangel Zaphkiel as the Angel of Contemplation. It has been said that he can help bring a deep spiritual knowledge raising your vibrations to bring you closer to Source. He does this by assisting you through meditation and prayer to help you achieve enlightenment.

Symbols & Signs to Recognize Zaphkiel
The name Zaphkiel translates to “Knowledge of God”. He has been referenced as chief of the order of Thrones and one of the 9 angels that rule Heaven. Some say he governs the planet Saturn, while others claim he arises from Venus – the planet of love.
I tend to experience Zaphkiel in a deliciously warm red, orange, and yellow flames with tingling sensations throughout the body. Others may perceive him as being associated with the color purple. He is very much connected to the Sacral and lower Chakras, associated with the color orange, so balance between the physical and spiritual can be achieved.

Having a Personal Experience with Archangel Zaphkiel
So I’m about to get real and personal with you here…. My first experience with Archangel Zaphkiel began after a sexual assault when I was 18. I was desperate to rise above the pain and violation. I did not want this horrible experience to ruin my chances of finding true love and being able to connect with a partner on an intimate level.
I began therapy and also began reading as many books as I could find on sex and intimacy, to build my confidence. One day, I was walking down a store filled street on my way to class and I saw a bookstore with a bin of $1 books As I walked past, a book fell out of the bin and onto my path. I picked it up and noticed that the book was about self worth and sex! I paid for the book and brought it home.
After class, I began reading the book and had a very intense meditation journey. On this journey, an orange flamed figure appeared and filled me with warmth and worth. His energy gave me hope and courage, and his message let me know that my desire to grow beyond this current pain and confusion was assured… I would find love again and would enjoy the passions that life had to offer.
I returned from that meditative journey feeling more alive than I had felt in months! AND…I had a “random” image in my head to indulge in a sensual practice – champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. I called up a good friend and invited them over to indulge in this delectable treat for the first time. I shared my meditative memory and then we toasted to a new future. I’ve never looked back!
It wasn’t until many years later, as I was intentionally exploring each of the Archangels, that I was reminded of this experience and realized that Zaphkiel was by my side during my healing! Without his inspiration and his patient love, I would not have been able to move past the harm caused and rise into the person and lover I became in spite of it!
Invite Archangel Zaphkiel into your life today to explore how you can become more sensual, perhaps even healed if required, to fully embrace your Divine birthright to be present and fulfilled in your body!
To connect with Archangel Zaphkiel for your own personal experience, check out the guided meditation below.
Archangel Zaphkiel Meditation:
Close your eyes. Sit in stillness for a moment. Bring attention to your heart. Feel it beating in your chest. Notice its rhythm and speed. Match your breath to your heartbeat. Now bring attention to your sacral chakra. Notice its rhythm and speed. Listen closely. Can you hear its voice yearning to be heard? Can you feel its subtle pulse pulling you toward your desires? Lean into that feeling now. Notice how it feels to move into your desires, the expressive freedom that comes to you in a rush! As you enjoy this connection, a warm glow begins to form below your navel. It spreads slowly to permeate your entire midsection and pelvic area. Any unrealized, unexplored passions inside you are rising through this glow. You sense a presence joining these passions, an inspiring wellspring of sacred expression. It is Archangel Zaphkiel!
Repeat out loud this intention: I’m honoured to meet you Zaphkiel! I am an open vessel, ready to learn how to access my inner sacred lover and am so grateful for your unending passionate energy! Please show me the depth of my own passion, my own sensuality, in a tangible, verifiable way now. Thank you for making it so!
