Name Root:
ʿAZRIʾEL > ‛ezrâ' > ʿIzrāʾīl / Azra'eil
This name derives from the Arabic “ʿIzrāʾīl / Azra’eil,” from the Hebrew “‘ezra â’,’” meaning “one whom God helps, God is my helper, angel of death.” Azrael is an Archangel in the Abrahamic religions. He is often identified with the Angel of Destruction and Renewal of the Hebrew Bible. Islamic-Arabic tradition adopts the name, in the Arabic language as ʿAzrāʾīl. He is responsible for transporting the souls of the deceased after death. Along with Jibrail, Mīkhā'īl, and Isrāfīl, the Angel of Death, called Azrail, is one of the archangels of the Islamic faith. He and his subordinate angels are responsible for taking the souls of the deceased away from the body. In Judaism, Azrael is identified as the Angel of Death. However, the name “Azrael” itself is rarely used in Hebrew lore. In Jewish mysticism, he is commonly referred to as “Azriel,” not “Azrael.” There is no reference to Azrael in the Christian Bible, and as such, Azrael is regarded as neither a canonical nor a non-canonical figure in Christianity.

Chakra "Pineal Gland"

The Pineal Gland is about the size of a pea, and is in the center of the brain in a tiny cave behind and above the pituitary gland which lies a little behind the root of the nose. It is located directly behind the eyes, attached to the third ventricle. This chakra is also known as the upper dan tien. The ninth chakra is an interesting chakra in that it is in this chakra that all the Christ abilities lie dormant, waiting to be released and used in the outer and inner worlds. The shift in focus at this time is toward that Christ energy and the accompanying abilities that go along with it. Hence, a great deal of work and energy is now being sent into physical reality to help the individual open up and expand this energy center.
