Guided Meditation to Connect with Archangel Raphael

Article by Justine Melton

Archangel Raphael is known as the supreme angel of healing. He reaches across numerous religions and belief systems just as the healing art of Reiki does. He loves to be called upon and welcomes any opportunity to show you a sign of his presence. Raphael’s greatest joy is to bring healing to your life. He has a special affinity for those who feel the calling to work as healers. He will watch over you and use you as a vessel to help others. He emits a beautiful green emerald healing light.

I first came in contact with Archangel Raphael during a meditation session. I knew that I loved the world of Reiki and that my calling was to help others heal. I wasn’t sure however if Reiki was something I should pursue as a business or if it was just a hobby. Raphael appeared to me in my meditation and said that I was to move forward and be a healer. He promised to look over me and help me be a vessel to bring healing to many around me. He instantly alleviated any worries I had and helped give me confidence in the direction I was to go. Before each Reiki session I have with a client I ask him to please help heal the client for their greatest good. He has brought so much peace to my life and inspired my business name of Divine Light Therapies.

One of the things that I love the most about Archangel Raphael is that he is so easy to make contact with. He loves to show you his presence and receives a great deal of joy from making a connection with you. Raphael can help bring so much love and healing to your life as well as being able to show you how to bring it to others.

Here is a very simple guided meditation routine of how to easily connect with Archangel Raphael.

  1. Pick a place where it is quiet and you are most at peace. This can be an outdoor space or indoor space.
  2. Reiki the room or space with whatever symbols you feel called to use. I like to use the Master symbol but any symbols you feel called to use will be correct for you.
  3. Next, if you prefer to mediate with music put music on. Music can really help some people to clear their mind and have a better connection.
  4. Next, light a candle. I like to use white or pink but many people find it easier to connect by using a green candle since that is the color that radiates from Raphael.
  5. Sit in your prepared meditative space and close your eyes. Spend a minute slowly breathing in and out, in and out, in and out. At this point picture Raphael coming to you and standing before you. Open up to whatever messages you feel he is trying to tell you.
  6. If you have any questions for him now is the time to ask! Pay attention to whatever thoughts you suddenly have. These thoughts could be your answer! Do not dismiss any information you are receiving. If it doesn’t make sense right away it may make sense to you a few days or weeks later.
  7. After ten minutes of being in this meditative state (or however long you feel called to stay) picture a majestic green light filling your space. This light is clearing your space of anything that is bothering you and is bringing healing energy to you.
  8. Thank Raphael for his loving presence and then open your eyes feeling relaxed and at peace.
  9. At this point you may like to write down any messages or symbols you feel you were given so you can refer back to them later.

Wishing you all love and light!

    You are welcome! I’m glad you enjoyed it. 🙂

    Dont fall for this people, this will only guide you to the fallen angels, your mind will quiet down and evil will enter, just from experience! Its not pretty, peace and love

      I’m sorry you have had previous bad experiences. I agree with you that there are both light and dark forces in this world. You are able to protect yourself. You are also able to clear these energies from where you are at any time. Not communicating with the good because you fear the bad is your choice.

      Best of luck to you.

      Adam, when you meditate you are effectively raising your vibration through relaxing, slowing down. This opens your Chakra’s leaving you open to both good and bad energy. It therefore makes sense to ask for protection before you begin meditation. This will always be given to you as we are never, ever truely alone. You can also state that only energy of love and light can communicate with you. When you finish your meditation your Chakra’s will be open so it is very important to ask for your Chakra’s to be closed and also a good idea to ask for protection in the coming hours. This protection will always be given. The advantages of meditation and connecting with the God within and the Light of Creation, God Light that carries Love, Harmony, Peace and healing energies far out weigh the slight risk of a connection to negativity. By visualising the pearly white Light and sending it to someone with the power of thought, with intent, not only will that person receive the light, but what you send out will always, ALWAYS return to you. Not only Reiki, but other disciplines heal with the Light such as Qigong, Yoga, and Lightworkers. Through daily Light channeling you can raise your own vibration and remain healthy until it is time to return to Spirit. Best wishes.

    Thanks so much for your interesting article. I just took my Master Reiki course and give my friends and family treatments. I just tried your meditation and saw green light but not Raphael but will continue trying your mediation.

    • Justine May 15, 2018, 3:18 pm

      Thank you Paula! Best of luck. Some people can see figures some do not. It does not mean that you are blessed any more or any less. Angels can communicate with us by light, sound, thoughts, etc. Sending love! 💕

      I’m sorry I meant Justine LOL Must have been a truly great meditation 🙂

      • Justine May 15, 2018, 3:16 pm

        Lol thank you! ❤️

  • Cristina December 22, 2014, 3:16 am

    Thank you for this beautiful meditation Justine. I felt that I received the word “sister” which made me feel that the angels are our family as well as…..well, our angels and God’s messengers! It really helped me to get over my previous discouragement about Reiki. I also found the Reiki Rays- room clearing exercise from 02/27/13 and found that to be very helpful too. Also this is such a beautiful statue of Archangel Raphael. Do you know where the photo was taken or who the artist is? The image gives me such peace.

    • Jay July 12, 2016, 3:00 am

      This is just an image an artist created. Angels do not have one specific image for everyone. Angels do not have gender either. Close your eyes and the Archangel will present itself to you in the image that is right for you.

      • Justine May 15, 2018, 3:13 pm

        Beautiful thought and I agree. Thank you Jay! ❤️

    • Justine May 15, 2018, 3:15 pm

      Hi Cristina. I’m sorry I just saw your message. Thank you for your kind words. I do not know where the picture is from. Do an internet search for angel pics. It just may come up or you may find many more that call to you. Sending love. 💕

    • Justine May 15, 2018, 3:09 pm

      Hi Keya.

      If you do a basic meditation and ask your questions during your meditations it may be easier for you to connect and hear your answers. Try focusing on one question at a time. Sending love.💕

  • jaiprakash July 25, 2016, 2:50 pm

    plz help in viewing–archangel rapheal or give some of his message4me–m not so pure

    • Justine May 15, 2018, 3:12 pm

      Hi jaiprakash. The best messages come from your own Reiki sessions. Ask your questions during your session and see if a new answer comes to you at that time. 😀
