Raphael, whose name means "God Heals", is also a member of the Sarim and head of the Choir of the Virtues, the angels of miracles, and leader of the guardian angels. He is the angel of spiritual, mental and physical healing. Raphael will pour his emerald green energy into your spirit and ease your anxieties and calm and invigorate your body and mind . If you wish to bring this mighty angel of healing and love into your life you have to ASK him. Angels are not allowed to interfer with, or help us, unless we directly ask them to come into our lives. Once we ask they immediately come to our aid.
His aura is emerald green, the color of the heart chakra. Raphael has a great sense of humour and is a deeply loving, caring angel who is special interest is healing be it of the spirit, mind, body or the earth be they nurses, doctors, veterinarians, or psychologists. He is alleged to have taught Noah medicine and gave him the Book of the Archangel Raziel (a text of ancient wisdom) to take with him on the Ark. You can find a copy of this text at the Library of Inspiration if you wish to read it.
Raphael is the patron of healers and those in need of healing. This mighty Archangel is able to fearlessly move into what ever area is in need of healing, 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 hearts and minds to the healing power of Spirit and the Universe. He will fill your spirit with renewed love for all whom you meet in your day or life and will fill you with a longing to be at, and bring peace and oneness to everything in creation. 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 assists 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 issues of another.
Working with this Archangel offers protection both for the healer and the person seeking healing. When we are ill or in the midst of a serious issue or problem, this leaves us open and vulnerable to all sorts of psychic intrusions 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 reminds us that it is not up to us to figure out how to heal ourselves and others, it 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 known many healers who became burned out and frustrated, doubting their path because 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 world instead of understanding that they can only be the catalyst for healing. It is up to the individual to accept the healing. If you, or someone that you know, is going through a medical situation or facing surgery you should ask the Archangel Raphael and your guardian angel to guide the hands of the surgeons and the nurses that are taking care of you that day.He will make sure that you receive the best care possible.
Yet we can also call upon Raphael 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! Raphael also teaches us that what every healing we are seeking, be it emotional, physical, mental, spiritual or financial, we must do our bit by creating a channel through which the healing can flow! Raphael also seeks to help us get in touch with the shadow side of ourselves so that we may bring it into the light. The shadow is nothing for us to fear, especially when we have this mighty Angel by our side! Raphael knows that the shadow exists because we all fear that is what we really are and not the goodness and light that he knows is our true nature. We reinforce our shadow side when we ignore it, pretend it doesn't exist and allow it to fester and grow. The shadow though is really nothing more than parts of ourselves that feel unlovable and what a painful way that is to feel! No matter how hard or how long we try to ignore it, the shadow is always present until we muster the courage to send it love and compassion which brings it into the light. And nothing cannot be healed through the light of Spirit! Raphael seeks to encourage each and every one of us to spend some time simply getting to know our own shadows. Talking to it, asking why it feels the way it does, asking where it sprang from. Then we can go back and work to heal these bits of ourselves because we understand that it arose from a deep hurt or wound. We can strive to forgive anyone who has hurt us and thus contributed to the creation of our shadow. And we can also then begin to strive to ask forgiveness of others, those we ourselves have wounded. Each of us has done something to another that caused them pain, sometimes even tremendous pain! When we look at the need to forgive from that perspective it can make it much easier to forgive others for we would want others to forgive us as well! And it is through forgiveness that all true healing occurs. Raphael seeks to teach us that forgiveness does not mean that the action or deed that was done to us or others was right, but that forgiveness really means we refuse to carry such a heavy load of anger, resentment and pain any longer. Raphael asks "Is it really worth it to you to carry this when you know that all it is doing is impeding your own progress of joy through life?" He also stands at the ready if you need help with the forgiveness process, especially when we find that sometimes the hardest person to forgive is ourselves.
