Angel of Lions, Lion of God
According to the book “Dictionary of Angels”, and the book “Angels A to Z”, Ariel or the Archangel Ariel has quite a storied past in Earth legend and esoteric writings.
First, the name “Ariel” is Hebrew and means “Lion of God”. In Sumeria, Ariel was depicted as a male deity with the head of a lion. In the Kabbala, the Jewish mystics ascribed the name Ariel to be the hidden, or poetic name for the city of Jerusalem. Some of the Gnostic texts define Ariel as a “controller of demons”, holding power over the lower astral realms. Other sources identify Ariel as being strongly associated with the Devic kingdoms, and also as a “Guardian of, and Lord of the Earth”. Ariel is also believed to work with Archangel Raphael in the healing arts. Some have conjectured that Ariel is the “feminine” aspect of Uriel, one of the four main Archangels before the Throne of God.
