Diana Cooper shares her wisdom on healing with Archangel Raphael…
Angel of the month: Archangel Raphael
He is the angel of healing. Call on him when you want to develop your third eye chakra, when you are travelling and need protection, or want to be open to abundance. His angel retreat is above Fatima, Portugal. He radiates a glorious Emerald light.
“My friend was seriously ill, and many people had been sending her healing. Then one evening I received the dreaded message that she had taken a turn for the worse and was not expected to live the night. Immediately, I lit a candle and asked Archangel Raphael to send her healing for the highest good. I sat down and breathed myself into a relaxed state, focused on her happy, healthy, laughing and full of life, then let go and relaxed as deeply as I could. Suddenly, a flash of emerald light came right through me. It was Archangel Raphael himself. In the morning she had made an unexpected recovery and now many years later she really is happy, healthy, laughing and full of life. When we ask the angels to do something, then continue to worry about it, we have not handed the problem over! We are still saying: “I can do it myself.” If we ask, then visualise the desired outcome, relax and let go – we allow them to do it. In that case, they can make some extraordinary magic happen.”
Archangel Raphael is emerald green, so I have chosen Malachite as the crystal for this month. It is a very grounding and soothing stone, and helps to relax you so that the great Archangel can touch you when you need it. It is a perfect crystal to carry in your pocket or bag when you go for a walk, or if you are on a journey.

3 Rhyming chant: “Archangel Raphael, I love you. Surround me in your emerald hue.”

5 Visualisation: Close your eyes and centre yourself. Imagine you are entering a palace through a door inlaid with shimmering Emeralds. Archangel Raphael sits in the great hall with his arms open to you. As you run to him, his soft wings enfold you. Surrender to his love. For an instant, he lights up your perfect divine health blueprint. Sense him touch your third eye and open you to abundance. Take a few breaths into your third eye and out of your heart. Know something within you is changing.
