Angel of Love: Chamuel
Ruler of the Powers, the sphere or level of angelic influence, Chamuel is also considered the ruler of the angels of love who work to harmoniously entice and encourage love throughout the Universe. Chamuel is named as one of the seven archangels in the Book of Enoch, who stand before God and who’s name means “He who sees God.” Chamuel is the balance of heaven and earth, which manifests within the human heart. Chamuel grants our deepest desire to give and receive love unconditionally. “To experience love that transcends and transforms the true self, giving love energy to every single reason and purpose, giving lasting benefit and value to all creation.”
In classical mythology, Cupid, meaning “desire” is the god of desire, erotic love, attraction and affection. He is often portrayed as the son of the love goddess Venus and the war god Mars, and is known in Latin also as Amor (“Love”). His Greek counterpart is Eros.
Although Eros is in Classical Greek art as a slender winged youth, during the Hellenistic period, he was increasingly portrayed as a chubby boy. During this time, his iconography acquired the bow and arrow that represent his source of power: a person, or even a deity, who is shot by Cupid’s arrow is filled with uncontrollable desire.
Cupid continued to be a popular figure in the Middle Ages, when under Christian influence he often had a dual nature as Heavenly and Earthly love. In the Renaissance, a renewed interest in classical philosophy endowed him with complex allegorical meanings. In contemporary popular culture, Cupid is shown drawing his bow to inspire romantic love, often as an icon of Valentine’s Day.
