Archangel Raphael and Healing ========================== Raphael is the patron of healers and those in need of healing.

This m ighty Archangel is able to fearlessly move into what ever area is in need of hea ling, bringing a host of Angels with him to accomplish this. It does not matter what we are facing, Archangel Raphael is there with us helping us to open our he arts and minds to the healing power of Spirit and the Universe. This Angel works with and through all sorts of healers and counselors, anyone who is willing to open up to the energy of the Higher to bring peace and healing to others. He ass ists us in being a catalyst for healing while not taking on or empathing what is happening with those we are serving. This allows us to be both clearer channels for the healing process as well as insuring we do not take on the problems or i ssues of another. Archangel Raphael's name means " God Heals". This Angel represents t he ability contained within each of us to heal ourselves if we can shift our con sciousness into a state where we truly believe that Spirit has gifted each of us with it's vast creative and healing powers, Spirit held nothing of itself back when we were birthed into the Universe. Archangel Raphael is the overseer of all healers be they alternative or allopathic. The Person who teaches school by day and offers counseling support by night to friends and family is being a channel for Raphael and as such is under his protection and guidance. We are all healer s for ourselves and each other, whether we go through training to practice a for mal type of healing or whether we simply respond as needed when the occasion ari ses, we all should be aware of how we are supporting the healing process of othe rs and remember to call upon this archangel to support ourselves lest we take on the problems and issues of others and make them our own. An illness or issues c an be absorbed into our energy field and repeated exposure can create a fertile environment for these same problems and issues to grow in out own lives. One can prevent this is simply upon calling upon this Archangel for protection and guid ance, to offer what healing we are able to and then turning it over to Raphael a nd Spirit for continued resolution. Working with this Archangel offers protection both for the healer a nd the person seeking healing. When we are ill or in the midst of a serious issu e or problem, this leaves us open and vulnerable to all sorts of psychic intrusi ons and thought forms that can blow the issues completely out of proportion and what started off as the sniffles can turn into something more serious. Likewise a minor financial problem can suddenly blossom into a huge concern. Raphael remi nds us that it is not up to us to figure out how to heal ourselves and others, i t is our duty instead to call upon him and the Universe to guide us through the healing process, to allow the power of Spirit to flow through us as hollow bones . Likewise we are not responsible for anyone's healing except our own. I have kn own many healers who became burned out and frustrated, doubting their path becau se the people they were drawing to them seemed to making little to no progress. They felt responsible to set things right for these people and the rest of the w orld instead of understanding that they can only be the catalyst for healing. It is up to the individual to accept the healing. Yet we can also call upon Raphae l to help ourselves accept the healing that he is trying to give us each day. We never have to go through the process of learning how to receive on our own, but always have the mighty presence of this Angel working for us!

You can work with Archangel Raphael and his healing energy using meditation. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------To prepare say a prayer to Mother/Father/God/Arch Angel Raphael, to please help you be as open to the healing as possible and to join in the healing work and su pport you through your healing process.

Sit comfortably where you will not be disturbed. Begin by grounding and centering yourself. Close your eyes and imagining roots growing from your feet i nto Mother Earth. Then follow this simple breathing exercise to relax your physi cal body: breathe in through your nose, hold it for 7 seconds, and release it ve ry slowly through your mouth. Repeat 3 times then unconsciously continue breathi ng this way throughout the meditation. Tell your Ego-self to move toward your le ft shoulder. Let the Ego-self know that it s only an observer during the healing a nd know this is so. Ask God/dess to send down a beam of protective white light. God/dess hears your request and in your mind s eye you immediately envision a beam of light coming down from the universe. Watch it surround you in a protective g low. Call Archangel Raphael, either mentally or out loud and ask. "Archangel R aphael please come to me now and assist me in my healing." If you like, also inv ite in your Higher Self and your own Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels. You don t need to know their names, just say "Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels, please jo in Archangel Raphael in my healing session." In your mind s eye, picture Raphael standing over you with his hands outst retched over your head. See the healing energy in the form of green light flowin g from his hands down into your body through your crown chakra (the top of your head). Try to relax and feel the energy. You may not be able to feel the energy at first, but after doing this a few times (if needed); you will probably begin to become more sensitive to the energy. Most people feel the healing energy as w armth or tingling. Others feel a soft and loving stream running through their bo dy. Whatever you feel is right for you. The first time, let this energy flow through you for a while, opening you to Archangel Raphael s curative energy and preparing you on all levels to accept the healing. This initial step can last for several minutes or until you feel th at it is time to move on to the next step. Now change the focus onto specific parts of your body. Picture Raphael's h ands over these areas and feel and see the green light flowing through his hands to your injury or area of illness. When you are through, thank Archangel Raphael, and ask him to protect you from negative thoughts and feelings that manifest into health problems. Also tha nk your Spirit Guides and Angels for assisting in the healing. Focus on grounding and centering yourself. Again, picture the roots from your feet into Mother Earth. Now open your eyes. It does not matter if you are good at visualization, or whether or not yo u can physically feel the healing energy from Archangel Raphael and your intenti ons are what you are healed by. This method works with injuries and illnesses eq ually well. You may repeat this work several times a day if necessary, or whenever y ou feel you need it. Once you are used to healing work with Archangel Raphael, your Spirit Gu ides and Angels, you can ask them for quick relief and healing. This is especial ly helpful for chronic conditions they regularly work with you on such as pain r elief. Please remember to thank Archangel Raphael, your Guides and Angels for

their help. It s not necessary but they really appreciate the acknowledgment that you know they are their working with you. You can also take the time and opport unity to talk with them, either telepathically in your mind or softly out loud. They do hear what you say and acknowledge in ways that they can, even if you can 't hear their responses back to you in words. Healing Others with Archangel Raphael s Energy -----------------------------------------------------------------You can also work with Archangel Raphael to heal others. We are all bei ngs of light and anyone can work with the healing energy and assist in another p erson's healing. You do not need any special training to do this type of healing work. You just act as a channel for the healing energy. All that is needed is y our intention to help the other person in their highest good. Archangel Raphael, your Higher Self and Spirit Guides, and the Higher Self and Spirit Guides of th e person you are doing the healing work with are directing the healing being don e. Your main job is support for the person, or "receiver," and to facilitate the healing work. Make the person you are going to work on comfortable by having them sit in a chair or lay down. Together, ask your ego-selves to move toward your left s houlders. Let the ego-selves know they are only observers during the healing and know this is so. Ask your Angels, Guides and the receiver s Angels and Guides to accompany you on this quest to heal now. Ask God/dess to send down a beam of pro tective white light. God/dess hears your request and in your mind s eye you can im mediately envision a beam of light coming down from the universe. Watch it surro und you and the receiver in a protective glow. Both of you say, out loud, "Archangel Raphael please come to us now and assist in the healing in [Healer's highest good and that [Receiver] accepts the healing in their own highest good. Of course, all of this can be done silently. The person being healed doe sn't have to participate in the prayers and invitation. But it is helpful if the y do take an active role in the healing. Place your hands on or above the person's head. Picture Archangel Raphae l standing behind you and working through you. Try to envision or feel the heali ng green light energy flowing from Archangel Raphael into your hands and then in to the crown chakra of the receiver. Your hands may become warm from the energy. After several minutes of this, move on to specific areas of the body wher e it is needed the most. Trust your own feelings and guidance on the length of t ime to spend on each area and where to place your hands. You could be guided to work on areas that have nothing to do with the are as of the symptoms, disease or injury. This could be underlying causes or just a separate need for healing in that area of the body. Just follow your intuition. When you are through, don t forget to thank Archangel Raphael and the spirits involved. Working with Archangel Raphael and his healing energy is very easy. The healing is done by your intention and willingness to work with the Beings of Light minis tering to you and the people that you are working with.
