Summoning Meditation for Angel Raphael. . .
When summoning Archangel Raphael, you would summon him out of the west. For a summoning ceremony you will need a few things. These items are as follows: Something in the shape of a heart, a simulated gold plated coin ( can be play money ), a purple ribbon, a yellow candle, and some eucalyptus incense.
Locate the west facing area of your home and face the window. If there is no window there, then simply face the west wall. Having a table or flat surface will be needed. Place the candle on the table or surface and light it chanting to yourself quietly the name of Raphael. Light the incense and allow it to perfume the air for a few moments while continuing your chant.
Now begin to chant the name of Raphael in a low voice, that is, just above a whisper. Place the heart shaped item in front of you and the gold coin on top of that. lay the ribbon in a circle around the coin. Now begin to chant the name of Raphael in a normal voice and say, "Raphael, come now, Raphael heal now, come o Raphael with the blessed healing of God"! Repeat this three times. After you have said this, you can turn out the candle. Raphael will speak to you in three days.
Receiving Divine Intervention from Archangel Raphael. . .
Raphael can also heal relationships. When thee has been harm done to you, or you have hurt someone else, Raphael can mediate the intricacies of emotion very well. There are times when people fall out of contact with each other and leave on bad terms never communicating again. Raphael does not like to see close relationships come to an end, so, he fights for the mending of old wounds between friends and family. There are many times that the only thing that can mend those relationships is divine intervention. When all else fails, Raphael comes to your aid, but you have to ask him for help.
There are many times in life when we have to look within ourselves to heal inner wounds. Raphael specializes in this kind of healing. Healing of the emotions can be very difficult because the pain tends to cloud our judgement. But Raphael can see past your pain to the strength within you. It is from a place of strength that he helps you. He looks at your strong points and encourages you in those areas. He doesn't look at your weaknesses. Your weaknesses are caused by a lack of strength, so he infuses healing into your strong areas so that you will refocus your attention on them, instead of your weakness.
