Term: Samael

Originally considered an evil angel in Judaism. Samael means “blind god.” In this sense, “blind” means “ignorant,” and the Gnostics considered ignorance to be the seat of evil. Today, Samael is considered a protective angel, who provides persistence and courage whenever necessary. Samael is willing to help us deal with our enemies in a gentle manner, to defuse and eliminate long-lasting difficulties.
