The healing angel is with you, supporting your healing work.

Archangel Raphael’s name means “God heals.” His specialty is to alleviate physical or emotional pain in both people and animals. And he can assist people who want to start a career as a healer in order to help others.

Raphael has a gentle, calming energy, as opposed to Archangel Michael who has a fierce, warrior energy. Raphael’s signature color is emerald green. 

Ask Archangel Raphael for help with:

  1. Healing your mind, body and spirit
  2. Healing others, including animals
  3. Safe travels
  4. Finding lost pets
  5. Spiritual clearing

Calling on Archangel Raphael

For yourself

Call on him when you’re physically ill. He can help when you want to make a healthy change in your lifestyle such as giving up smoking or starting to exercise more. And he can heal your heart from painful emotions. If you’re a sensitive person and tend to take on the energy of others, call on Archangel Raphael  and Archangel Michael to clear away any low vibration, dark energies that may be attached to you.

Finally, if you feel drawn to entering a healing profession yourself, ask Archangel Raphael for guidance and resources (time and money) as well as assistance with attracting your ideal clients.

To ask for Raphael’s help, simply say or think, “Archangel Raphael, please help and heal me.” And then tell him about your situation, relax and allow him to work. Take some deep breaths, picture yourself surrounded by emerald green light and have faith that you are being healed. Listen for any ideas or thoughts that pop into your head, because they could be a message or suggestion from Archangel Raphael about an action step that you can take to aid the healing process.

For others

You can ask Archangel Raphael to heal your loved ones and animals too. Raphael will go to anyone you ask him to visit. Other people do have free will, so if they are not open to his healing, he will not be able to help them. However, that’s not up to you! So if you know that a friend or family member could use Archangel Raphael’s help, then ask him and allow it to be what it will be.

When you ask Archangel Raphael to heal another, simply tell him the name, ask for help, and then picture that person surrounded in a bubble of beautiful, peaceful emerald green light. Whether that person allows Raphael to help or not, they will still be comforted by his gentle, calming energy around them. 

My favorite time to call on Archangel Raphael

The Gravy Boy

The Gravy Boy

I have a crazy dog named Gravy. I adopted him from a shelter 4 years ago, and he had a lot of major problems with anxiety. He currently lives with my parents on their ranch in Montana because he’s much happier and less anxious when he can run free.

However, summer is thunder storm season, and Gravy is terrified of any loud noises. If he’s outside during a thunder storm, he will panic and start running as fast as he can. And he won’t stop until he reaches a junction of two highways 6 miles away from my parents’ house.

Whenever I think about this, I feel nervous that Gravy will get lost or hit by a car in one of his thunder-induced, panicked runs. But, obviously, there’s nothing I can do about this because he does not live with me.

So, when I start to worry that I’ll never see my beloved dog again, I call on Archangel Raphael to protect Gravy and bring him home safely. I picture him surrounded in a bubble of emerald green light, and I surrender my own anxiety to Spirit. This way I’m calling on Archangel Raphael to assist on two levels. One with healing the fear in my heart and one to keep watch over my poor, panicky pooch.

Do you have a loved one who could benefit from Archangel Raphael’s healing energy?
