Connecting with the Archangels Michael and Raphael

Many people call upon the Archangels as well as the angels to help them. Some notice signs, or that their prayers are answered. Some feel energies around them, or sometimes a feeling of an angel stroking their hair or face. Others sense energies, messages and guidance coming to them, often when giving healing to others. The help of the angels and Archangels comes in many ways.

The two most common Archangels that people call upon are Michael and Raphael. I would like to invite you to call upon them to help you, and to even try a meditation with them, to feel their energies and help. It’s part of the Guided By Angels home study programme. meditation may be stronger for some of you than others, or stronger on some days for you than others, but I would like to give you the opportunity to try it and hopefully experience a little something – maybe nice feelings, energies, a few words – so you have at least a little taste of what it is like to commune with the angels and archangels.

Simply by attempting to open to their help, you will ‘open the door wider’ for their future help. I hope this gift helps you to develop your angel connection further.  Be aware that these are powerful spiritual energies so you may find the feelings overwhelming at times. If so, take a break and reflect quietly on what the angels may be trying to communicate.

Archangel Michael
The most familiar of the Archangels, many people have already sensed a connection with Michael and call upon him often. Michael assists with protection (for ourselves, loved ones, homes), psychic clearing and protection (including cutting chords with his sword). He also helps give us courage and strength when needed, and provides direction and help with our life and life path. Like all of the archangels, Michael is a multidimensional being and can help all who call upon him simultaneously – he is never too busy to help, he is always available and responds swiftly. His messages are usually clear and to the point. A no nonsense archangel who we all love!

Archangel Raphael
Raphael is the Archangel of healing and healers. Call upon him for help with healing on any level, for yourself or others (humans or animals). Call upon him also for help in developing your healing work. If you sense an angel assisting and guiding you while giving healing to others, it may well be Raphael, or one of his team of healing angels. Raphael is associated with the colour green, and normally appears as a fairly normal looking male of average height. He loves to assist all aspects of healing, and helping healers to develop their gifts and healing work.

Connecting with the Archangels
Here is a guided meditation you can listen to now, or download to your computer and listen to over the weekend. It will guide you to connect with the Archangels for guidance, wisdom and healing. I offer this to you, so that you can connect with Michael or Raphael over the next few days and weeks.
