, Gabriel at my left, Uriel in front of me, Raphael behind me, and above my head, the Shekhina—the Divine Presence.” This is one of my congregation’s favorite meditations; it works well for adults and children. As a meditation, it can be used to develop a sense of protection, comfort, healing, and security. It is one of the few meditative exercises recommended at bedtime. When we call upon angels to be with us, we tap into an infinite resource of good will. It is as if we plug into the magnetic core of the earth to keep ourselves centered. Archangels represent the God-center of the universe; they draw nourishment from Its infinite supply. The only impediments to connecting with this energy are doubt and cynicism. If we can recognize these as they arise in our minds and find appropriate cubbyholes in which to put keep them in reserve for the times when they are useful, we can instantly benefit from the feeling of angelic presence. 1. Try to find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed for twenty to thirty minutes, such as in bed at night, when falling asleep. Close your eyes, relax your body, and breathe normally. Allow your attention to focus on the experience of your body and the movements of your chest and stomach around your breath. 2. Let yourself imagine that you can feel a presence along the right side of your body and the right side of your face. It can be like a subtle pressure, a tingling, a vibration, heat, coolness, or some other sensation. If you cannot feel anything, simply think that something is next to you, almost touching you on the right side.
Give this experience on the right side the name of Michael. The archangel Michael is often viewed as the messenger of God. Whatever this may mean to you, pretend that the messenger of God is totally present on your right side. Be with this experience for a while. When you are ready, let yourself imagine another presence on your left side. Feel the pressure, just like on your right. This is the archangel Gabriel, which is known to represent the strength of God. You can experience both sides simultaneously. The messenger of God on your right, the strength of God on your left. Stay with this experience for a while. Archangel Meditation
Allow yourself to sense something behind you, anywhere along the back side, particularly supporting you as you are sitting or lying down. Imagine that is part of what is holding you up. This is the archangel Raphael, generally known as the healing power of God. Now you can do all three simultaneously; Michael, the messenger, on the right; Gabriel, the strength, on the left; Raphael, the healer, supporting you from behind. Next, with your eyes still closed, imagine a light is shinning ahead of you, in front of your face. Allow it to be as bright as you can. This is the archangel Uriel, the light of God. Now you are surrounded on four sides: a messenger, strength, healing, and light. Finally, imagine a huge, benevolent cloud of light hovering above your body. This is the Shekhina, the feminine presence of God. Allow the light of the Shekhina to slowly descend, surrounding you with love, enveloping you with tender protection, cradling you in the softest, most peaceful state of mind you have ever experienced. Surrounded by angels, you are also in the arms of infinite kindness, absolute security, and safety. If you are in bed, this is a wonderful way to drift off to sleep. If you are sitting, stay as long as you wish in this state of mind. When you are ready to end the meditation, however, do not get up too abruptly. It is much better if you are able to reverse the process, slowly allowing the Shekhina to rise up again to hover over your head. Then let go of the angels one by one, making sure they do not go too far away but give you freedom of movement. Even though you let go of the meditative state, you will probably feel a residual of this experience once you begin moving around.
You can practice this meditation as often as you wish. We cannot over load on angelic energy; it is always beneficial. This is a great meditation to share with children. Most people who are ill gain enormous benefits from this guided meditation; you can do it in their homes or in the hospital. I have done this even over the telephone. But be sure that the person meditating will not be disturbed for at least twenty minutes, and most important, you should be well practiced in it yourself before offering it to others.
Also called shaking palsy or paralysis agitans. Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disease affecting the nervous system. Its cause is unknown, but symptoms appear when there is an imbalance of two chemicals, dopamine and acetycholine, in the brain. Scientists found a deficiency of dopamine in certain brain cells. This chemical carries messages from one nerve cell to another. When the brain is not able to manufacture dopamine, Parkinson’s disease results. Malnutrition is believed to be a major underlying factor. Symptoms of this disease include muscular rigidity, drooling, loss of appetite, a stooped, shuffling gait, tremors that include a characteristic pillrolling movement of the thumb and forefinger as they rub against each other, impaired speech, and a fixed facial expression. The disease may start with a tremor of the hands while at rest. The body gradually becomes rigid and the limbs stiffen. The drug most often used to treat this disease is levodopa; however, it isn’t effective alone and can have serious side effects, including paranoia and hallucinations. If taking this drug, do not take vitamin B6. Taken together, vitamin B6, and levodopa elevate brain dopamine. Using vitamin B6, alone is probably safer and is as effective. Digested protein prevents this drug from reaching the brain, where it is needed for effectiveness. Eat protein only at dinner, not when taking the drug. In addition, the drug Sinemet reduces stiffness. NUTRIENTS Supplement Very Important

The diet should contain 75 percent raw foods with seeds, grains, nuts, and raw milk. Fasting and chelation are both helpful. (See FASTING and CHELATION THERAPY in Part Three.) If on the drug levodopa, consume in moderation only bananas, beef, fish, liver, oatmeal, peanuts, potatoes, and whole grains. These foods contain vitamin B6 and interfere with the drug’s potency.
