Archangel Raphael is the archangel of the fifth ray of truth, wholeness, healing, science, precipitation, the abundant life, music and mathematics. His divine complement is the Archeia Mary, who was embodied as Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Their ray corresponds to the third-eye chakra, and they can also assist us with spiritual vision and the gift of the discernment of spirits.
The name “Raphael” means “God has healed,” or “the Medicine of God.” One Jewish text says he revealed to Noah the curative power of plants; another tells how he healed a blind man and bound a demon. Catholics revere him as the angel who healed the sick at the pool of Bethesda. The Book of Enoch tells us that his responsibilities include healing the diseases and wounds of men.
A Jewish tradition names him as one of the three archangels who appeared to Abraham on the plains of Mamre. In fact, it is believed that it was Raphael who endowed Sarah, Abraham’s wife, with the strength to conceive when she was past childbearing age.
Raphael is also known as the patron of travelers. In the Book of Tobit, Raphael, disguised as a knowledgeable traveler, accompanies Tobit’s son as his guide on a long journey. At the end of the story, Raphael reveals his true identity and explains that God sent him to test the faith of Tobit and his son. They passed their tests and received great blessings of healing and abundance.
Raphael and Jesus’ mission
When Mary took incarnation on earth, having been chosen by God to give birth to Jesus Christ, the Avatar of the Piscean age, Archangel Raphael did not embody with her but overshadowed her throughout her mission and assisted her in bringing forth “the son of the Highest.” Saint Germain embodied as Joseph, having been chosen by God to be the husband of Mary. Similarly his twin flame, the ascended lady master Portia, also did not take embodiment but overshadowed him.
The science of healing
Mary and Raphael minister unto the hospitals of the world, and they train expectant mothers and fathers at inner levels in the precipitation of the Christ consciousness through the four lower bodies, which are the vehicles for each one’s Holy Christ Self. They inspire new cures and alternative healing methods upon scientists and those trained in the healing arts and the medical profession.
The angels of Raphael’s bands are master surgeons. Raphael says they use a “laser technology” to “penetrate to the very core of a cell,...to expand the violet flame from within” and to “seal that cell in the healing thoughtform.”
The healing thoughtform
Archangel Raphael has released a healing thoughtform that is scientifically formulated to restore the inner blueprint and divine wholeness when visualized surrounding and penetrating the cells and atoms of the four lower bodies, or a specific organ. It is composed of concentric spheres of white, sapphire-blue and emerald-green sacred fire. The white sphere at the center works at inner levels to restore the injured part or the diseased organ to its original perfection. Next is the blue sphere, which establishes protection and an action of the will of God. The green outer sphere restores the flow of Spirit through Matter and brings wholeness.
If you or a loved one suffers an injury, call for the healing thoughtform: “In the name Jesus Christ, beloved Archangel Raphael, the Blessed Mother, place your healing thoughtform over [insert the name of the person].” Then visualize spheres of sacred fire descending from the heart of God as the pulsating presence of the Holy Spirit. Visualize the white-fire core centered in the scintillating, sapphire-blue flame wrapped in the emerald-green fires. The first minutes and hours after an accident are critical. Whether you keep the vigil at the bedside of a loved one or at a distance, picture the injured parts becoming whole until they are in their original healthy state. Hold this picture steady in your mind’s eye. Still all anxiety and doubt and fear and do not let any of that press in upon you. Focus totally on holding the healing thoughtform in your mind to the exclusion of all else. Affirm that God in you is beholding all as perfect and once again restored to its true image.
The immaculate concept
Archangel Raphael and Mary also teach the science of the immaculate concept. This science is practiced by every angel in heaven. When an angel looks upon you, they see you in purity as you were when God first created you. They hold that pattern over you. This enables you to fill in the pattern and realize who you really are—a son or daughter of God.
Holding the immaculate concept means that when you think of someone, you don’t think of them in a critical way. Visualize the Christ Presence around them and see them in the perfection you know God gave them in the beginning. Support people by maintaining this immaculate, stainless, spotless vision. Hold this vision for yourself also. Having seen what you are in Spirit and what is the potential of your soul, you must retain that image of Reality in your thoughts and feelings. For the image is a natural repellent to all that opposes your Reality in manifestation, and the perfect idea becomes a magnet that attracts creative energies of the Holy Spirit to your being to fulfill the pattern held in mind.
Mother Mary says:
Remember to call upon God, Archangel Raphael and myself and many angels, to bring healing where healing is possible. And if the Law does not allow it in the flesh, then call ... for the healing of the soul and the spirit.... It is the healing of the whole man that we are about.
Karma and healing
Raphael explains the key role that karma plays in healing:
Karma, beloved, is something that few understand. And many can hardly believe its science. Many will hardly understand how karma plays such a key role in whether or not a diseased situation may respond to the best of natural cures or those offered by medical science.
The x factor of the equation as to whether or not an individual will attain healing or wholeness or pass from the screen of life is this karmic circumstance. When the Law decrees that karma must be balanced and it must be balanced now, if the individual has not prepared a literal fountain of light through a momentum of devotion and light sustained in the aura, when he is bereft of that joy of service unto God, he may find himself having not enough of the light of God to consume the darkness that suddenly and swiftly is outcropping in the physical body....
Beloved ones, is it not also well to prepare for the day of urgent need by building up the light in the body temple and by balancing karma while you are able to work? This is the true meaning of “work while you have the Light,” which Jesus told to his disciples. The meaning is: balance your karma while you have the strength of the light in your being to perform those services, that sacred labor and the holy application of prayer and affirmation that can make a change in the karmic equation.
We can invoke the violet flame to transmute our karma even before it manifests as disease. We can be healed if we will apply the violet flame to our physical and psychological problems. In contrast to this approach of dealing with underlying causes of illness, there are some practitioners of healing who use hypnosis or mental willing to simply deny that disease exists. The result of these practices may be that the physical disease may be pushed back into the desire body, the mental body or the etheric body. The patient appears to be healed, but the karma has been suppressed, only to resurface in this life or in a future life.
Archangel Raphael explains that to remove the symptoms of disease without removing the record of its cause in this or a past life does a great disservice to the soul. And the individual who assents to the easy “cure” will see sometime, somewhere, in this or a future life, the same problem coming to the surface to be dealt with as karma that must be transmuted before the physical symptoms may permanently disappear.
► Main article: Raphael and Mother Mary's retreat
Raphael’s retreat is in the etheric realm over Fátima, Portugal. The healing flame blazing on the altar of his retreat was anchored in the physical octave when Mother Mary appeared to the children at Fátima in 1917. To the present hour, there is a stream of light that flows like a mighty waterfall from the etheric temple to the physical focus, and pilgrims are healed by the “waters” of the healing flame.
Raphael and Mother Mary have invited us to visit their retreat and to study the science of healing:
You may call to me and Raphael, for our etheric retreat is above Fátima in Portugal. There you may come at night [your soul in her etheric garment apart from the physical during the sleep state] and study the healing arts. Not far away is the University of the Spirit of Hilarion over the isle of Crete.
Do, then, call to God and your guardian angels to take you at night in your finer bodies where you may study and learn what are the golden-age methods of healing and how, when the planet is delivered of a certain karma and a certain band of fallen angels incarnate who oppose the real cures that could be available today for cancer and other terminal diseases—how through you and others there may come about finally the liberation and the revelation of the true healing arts.
Archangel Raphael’s keynote is “Whispering Hope,” by Alice Hawthorne. The music of the Messiah was inspired upon Handel by Raphael.
