Who is Archangel Raphael?

Archangel Raphael has long been regarded as the angel of healing. His name may be derived from the Hebrew word Rophe, which means “medicine doctor”; or Rapach, which means “God heals the soul.”

Although Raphael isn’t named in the Bible, theologians believe he was the archangel who healed the infirm at the Bethesda pond described in the Gospels. He is also thought to be one of the three angels who visited the patriarch Abraham and his wife, Sarah, to help with their conception; as well as the angel who healed Abraham’s grandson Jacob’s wrestling injuries and who gave King Solomon his magical ring.

When To Call On Archangel Raphael

Archangel Raphael brings God’s healing light to Earth. He once told me in a meditation that rather than healing, his role consists of revealing the true healed bodies that God created for all of us. To Raphael, everyone is already healthy in spiritual truth.

When you ask Raphael to heal a condition, often the cure manifests instantly. The archangel was just waiting for you to give him permission to conduct his healing work.Sometimes people feel a gentle buzzing energy as Raphael is healing them; or they see green lights. But for others, Raphael’s healing is very subtle.Raphael can help you reduce or eliminate pain stemming from short-term and chronic conditions. Again, it’s a result of your asking for his help. In this way, you signal your permission for him to intervene.


Since the time of his journey with Tobias, Raphael has been regarded as the patron of travelers. As someone who travels frequently, I can attest to Raphael’s talents in ensuring a smooth trip. You can ask Raphael for help with smoothing airplane turbulence, receiving cooperation from airline and hotel clerks, and getting your luggage quickly when your flight lands.

Raphael also combines his healing and travel talents to assure that you stay well prior to and during your vacation.Archangel Raphael often works in tandem with Archangel Michael to clear away fear and stress, which are major factors affecting health. The more you work with these archangels, the more you’ll come to trust them.
