~ Crystals Associated with Archangel Raphael are Emerald, Malachite, Fuschite, Citrine, Aventurine and Yellow Calcite. I also like fluorite as this helps connect when requiring calm, to de-stress and have a general feeling of wellness.
Emerald is not a common stone for people to use or get hold of so Malachite is probably the most popular followed by other crystals in shades of green and yellow. Malachite is a stone of healing, abundance, manifestation and is known as the stone of transformation. Aventurine is the stone of opportunity and is linked to the heart chakra. It creates a new you and assists Raphael in working towards your highest good and wellness.
You can use any of these crystals by holding them and saying a prayer or message to Archangel Raphael to assist in your connection. Pop them in your pocket, bra, car, under the mattress or treatment bed, where you sit and wherever you feel Raphael's help is best needed.
How To Connect With Archangel Raphael & Feel His Energy...
The first things to remember are his powerful healing will be for your highest good rather than what you desire. Raphael will work firstly on the healing aspects you need rather than what you want. His energy will infuse itself into your life working on many different aspects until a desired outcome is then met. Therefore you need to be open to receiving his help in many ways.
Start by thinking about what healing you really need and what is stopping your full potential. It may seem as simple as a bad back but there will be layers to this such as how did it occur, is it something that can be resolved such as new seating or posture, or stress even, is something out of alignment in your life. Raphael will look at why it happened and the reason you have been affected. It could be you need to stop what you are doing, alter your path or unravel the pent up feelings inside. He will bring people to assist you, offer advice and guidance through intuition and opportunities, whilst also bringing actual healing energy. So you see he brings a wholehearted approach to your life and well being.
Archangel Raphael is amazing at aiding your life and well being to be the best it can be.
When I call in Raphael to bring healing to someone they often feel warmth or see in their minds eye green light and flashes around them. It is a calling sign to say he is working with you. Sometimes Archangel Raphael will leave in place Angels to work for him so that the healing continues long after he has gone. This is often the case where long term illness is present, recovery is going to take time or where end of life care is required.
Call on him by saying a simple prayer such as...Archangel Raphael, please help me to be well and fulfilling my purpose. I ask that you bring healing and love so that I can be the best that I can be. Thank you Raphael for looking after me, Amen.
It is always important to give thanks whenever you ask for help too. This is an energy exchange after all and we wouldn't expect a job done without praise and thanks. So please remember the important parts of connecting with Archangel Raphael...
Be Open, Be Willing, Be Thankful.
