Archangel Metatron – The Universe’s Scribe

ArchAngel Metatron

Once upon a time, Archangel Metatron walked the plains of Earth as a human being before ascending into heaven and joining the realm of angels. Some believe that, in his human form, Archangel Metatron was the prophet Enoch, mentioned in the Torah and the Bible. Genesis 5:24 gives an account of his ascent into heaven “Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.”

Having experienced life as a human being, with its many ups and downs, Archangel Metatron is better able to relate to us and understand our journey through life. He can help us let go of unhealthy thoughts and establish a closer connection to God and the Universe.

What does Archangel Metatron do?

In his angelic form, Archangel Metatron is concerned with teaching us about our abundant spiritual powers. He is the Universe’s scribe, keeping a record of our collective thoughts and intentions behind our actions in a great big volume (called by some The Universal Archive, by others The Book of Life, or Karma, or The Akashic record).

Archangel Metatron works with us to show us how powerful our thoughts can be. He illuminates that, by replacing a negative thought with a positive one, or by perceiving our enemy as our brother, we can alter the course of our lives and make healthier choices for everyone involved. His ultimate objective is to show us that, no matter what happens in our lives, we still have the power to control our thoughts.

No one else is going to take the action that we need to take, in order to lead a better life. No one else is going to forgive, accept and love that which we hate or loathe – that is our job. And by changing our thoughts, we can ultimately alter our feelings and the course of our lives.

Archangel Metatron teaches us that it is not our circumstances that rule over us – no matter what hardships we may be facing, we still have a significant amount of control over our thoughts, feelings and actions. Even though we may not feel like this every day, we are powerful beyond measure, and Archangel Metatron wants us to recognise and tap into that power.

Signs and messages from Archangel Metatron

Angels can communicate with us. Each angel has a different approach. This is how others experienced Archangel Metatron’s signs and his presence in their lives.


Have you ever felt a strong fragrance and been instantaneously transported back to a very specific memory? Belinda Joubert writes in her book AngelSense, that Archangel Metatron communicates to her whenever she senses a specific fragrance, such as “strong herbs and spices like chilies or peppercorns.” When this happens, he’s asking us to pay attention to his message. You might intuitively feel what it is, or ask him to reveal it.

Angel numbers

Archangel Metatron can communicate with us through certain angel numbers (click here for more info on Angel Numbers). Many believe that 11 is his divine angel number. Number 1 communicates important wisdom, associated with Archangel Metatron:

    • Your thoughts create your reality. Each thought you send out into the Universe has a certain vibration attached to it. If you want your outer reality to change, work on bringing your inner reality into a state of balance.
    • We are all interconnected. There is no separation. Your enemy is your brother. You and your brother are one.
    • The time is ripe to take your life into a new direction, and the Universe is 100% behind this decision.

How to channel Archangel Metatron

Although Archangel Metatron may already be communicating with you, here are several are ways you can channel his presence to give you his divine counsel and deepen your connection.

Prayer and meditation

This is the most effective way in how you can channel Archangel Metatron, and you can see some of my suggested meditations and prayers below to reach out to him.

Using crystals and candles

Archangel Metatron is often referred to as ‘the pillar of light’. Crystals, such as quartz or yellow and gold candles, can help invoke his presence while you meditate or pray. Think of the candle as a fiery light that’s cleansing your mind and purifying your thoughts.


As the Universe’s record keeper and scribe, Archangel Metatron is closely associated with the vocation of writing. Don’t worry if you’ve never tried journaling before – just surrender to the free flow of automatic writing. What you write doesn’t have to be perfect – no one is going to inspect it. Just let the words flow naturally. If you need some help in getting started, try my Ultimate Guide to Automatic Writing.

Archangel Metatron Prayer

When you pray to manifest Archangel Metatron’s healing presence in your life, you’ll feel his calming sense enter your mind, asking you to let go of things that no longer serve you, including old resentments and unforgiving thoughts.

He will help you see things from a higher perspective, allowing you to, ultimately, let go of a situation that’s causing you discomfort or pain.

One of the most powerful ways to pray for Archangel Metatron to manifest himself into your life is a simple prayer of gratitude. If you’re facing a particularly difficult situation, or are unable to make sense of a certain event, or let go, try this prayer.

Archangel Metatron
I thank you for your presence in my life
I thank you for showing me the way to wisdom
I thank you for helping me to let go of unhealthy situations,
unhealthy thoughts, and unhealthy actions
I recognize that the Universe, God and I are one
I recognize that there is no separation between others and I
I desire to let go of my ego and to see this situation from a higher perspective
Help me draw closer to God, and bring healing to my thoughts, my words and my actions

Archangel Metatron meditation

Archangel Metatron can help us calm the chaos that we so often feel in our minds, living in such a busy culture.

Quite often, it is precisely in the evening hours, just before we ‘hit the hay’ that our mind starts to race and relive various moments of our days, ruminating over challenges and difficulties that we’ve faced. This is the perfect moment to ask Archangel Metatron to bring us back to a place of balance, to help us let go and to calm our anxieties.
