Sandalphon (who believers say was the prophet Elijah before becoming an angel) presents people's prayers to God, inspires them to praise God in creative ways, and helps them use the talents God has given them to contribute to the world. Is Sandalphon trying to communicate with you? Here are some signs of Sandalphon's presence: Take Care of the Earth Some believers say that Sandalphon and another archangel he works closely with, Metatron, are unique among angels because they both lived on earth as human beings before God transformed them into angels, while other angels were originally created to be angels. On earth, Sandalphon was the prophet Elijah and Metatron was the prophet Enoch, believers say. Since Sandalphon has experience living on earth as a human, they say, one of Sandalphon's God-given duties is to inspire humanity to take good care of the planet on which we live. "Sandalphon inspires the essence of living in co-creation with nature," write Stewart Pearce and Richard Crookes in their book, The Angels of Atlantis: Twelve Mighty Forces to Transform Your Life Forever. They later write: "Evolving currents of force through Sandalphon enable this great angel to govern the earth star chakra of we human beings, which helps give shape to our purpose on earth from a divine perspective, and therefore as we open ourselves to Source energy we restore the harmony of planet earth’s consciousness. Then divine love becomes the earth’s loving force. Through our planet’s life, we see evidence of this chakra awakening in the current human interest of the ecology, and the protection of earth’s sensitive surface and air." In her book, Angelic Karma: A Journey Into Angels, Karma, Soul Mates and Twin Flames, Lianne Lockyer writes: "Archangel Sandalphon is connected to the earth energies; he will remind you of the importance of being grounded and he will help you to establish a secure link between heaven and earth." Help With Prayer Sandalphon also helps people pray, say believers—either by giving them urges to pray or by helping them concentrate better on their prayers. In her book, Angel Thinking: A Guidebook Into the World of Oneness and Love, Lorelei A. Hill writes: "Archangel Sandalphon whispers to you: 'My choir of angels and I are here to help you reach out to God. It is easy![...] Tell God what is most important to you. God gets every one of your prayers. You need only listen to your heart for God’s answer.'[...] Talking to God is like talking to the person who loves you most in the world. Archangel Sandalphon asks you to use your power often to help yourself and others." Sandalphon "brings grounding to your spiritual practice" and Sandalphon’s spiritual help is "valuable for unifying the whole self by releasing the energy of alienation and fragmentation," writes Hazel Raven in her book, The Angel Bible: The Definitive Guide to Angel Wisdom. In her book, AngelSense, Belinda Joubert writes: "Sandalphon will assist and guide you to tap into the power of the divine. When you are powerful you will be filled with self-assurance and belief that you can trust in your skills and ability to achieve your dreams."
