Archangel Raphael: “Take several deep breaths, and exhale slowly to awaken your energy and to release old patterns.”
“Often during times of stress, you may unconsciously hold your breath. Yet, as you know, breath is essential to oxygenating your mind, body, spirit, and very life. Write a note to yourself to breathe, as a reminder of the importance of invigorating yourself with deep and steady breaths. Make trips to places where fresh air is plentiful. You’ll also notice an increase in air quality when you’re near water, such as the beach or a lake. Even taking a shower or bath puts you in touch with the positive ions associated with water and air.”
Working with Archangel Raphael: Raphael’s name means “Whom God heals,” and he is known as the healing angel in charge of physical healings for all living beings. Often, Raphael gives us Divine guidance (intuition, thoughts, ideas, dreams, and so on) about how we can participate in keeping our bodies healthy. When you call upon Raphael for a healing, pay attention to inner impressions, and be sure to follow through upon guidance that calls you to take action.
