Also known as Raphael, Archangel Raphael
Rapha’EL is representative of the pure Healing of the ONE.
Legend and Lore
Raphael is a powerful healer of physical bodies, both for humans and animals. Those who call on Raphael are healed rapidly. It’s said that he healed the pain that Abraham felt after being circumcised as an adult.
Raphael can be invoked on behalf of someone else. Raphael will go to wherever he’s requested; however, he can’t interfere with that person’s free will. If an ailing person refuses spiritual treatment, it can’t be forced. However, Raphael’s presence will have a comforting effect, which will aid in natural healing by reducing stress and anxiety.
In the Book of Tobit, Raphael travels with Tobias, who is Tobit’s son. During this journey, Raphael keeps Tobias safe from harm. He also helps those on inward spiritual journeys, assisting them in their search for truth and guidance.
Raphael also showed Tobias how to use parts of the fish he’d caught in medicinal ways, such as for healing balms and ointments. This is an example of how Raphael not only conducts spiritual healing work directly upon the ill or injured, but also guides human healers in knowing which Earthly treatments to use on their patients. Healers can mentally call upon Raphael for guidance before or during treatment sessions. Raphael also helps would-be healers with their education (including getting the time and money for school), and then assists them in establishing their healing practices by attracting wonderful clients.
Raphael is a healer and guide for wild and domesticated animals. I’ve had wonderful results when asking Raphael to retrieve lost pets for myself, friends, and clients. The results are almost immediate, as animals seem to be especially open to his gentle, loving care.
Raphael ultimately helped heal Tobit’s blindness, and he’s worked with thousands of my students at my workshops to open their “third eye,” which is a spiritual energy center that regulates clairvoyance. Raphael is very sweet, loving, kind, and gentle, and you know that he’s around when you see sparkles or flashes of emerald-green light.
Archangels Raphael and Michael often work in tandem to exorcise troublesome spirits and escort away lower energies from people and places. The Testament of Solomon describes how Raphael brought the magical ring to King Solomon, inscribed with the powerful six-pointed star. Solomon used the ring and its symbol to subdue demons. So, part of Raphael’s healing work involves spirit release and space clearing.
