the Angel Raphael
Swift, sleek eagle of the east.
Ruler of sylphs, elementals of the wind.
The whispers in breezes, the roars of Hurricanes.
Take flight and breathe hot breath across the land.
Pushing all to the limit.
Fast as the speed of thought on the heels of Mercury,
Mercurial in fact, fact in Mercurial.
Fan the fires of tempestuous fate.
Suffocate the flames of Gehenna.
Blow icy cold, a blanket of chill.
Cause ships to sail or keel, Cause masts and helm to reel.
Seas to swell and tides to rise above the norm.
Creator of the eye of the storm.
And one man raised his hands to thee
And thou didst gently calm the sea.
Healer of the wounds of the children of men.
The shining one who heals.
Thy healing balm like the calm from the belly of a fish.
Walked with Tobias in disguise.
Angel of good humor.
Swift as an arrow to make it's mark.
Prudent of the east,
Conqueror of worlds. champion of conquers.
Regent of the Sun.
Guardian of the tree of life.
One of the illustrious Watchers.
Knight in shining armor
Always be swift to bear me from harms way.
THE ANGEL OF THE AIR
The angel Raphael is always associated with the sign of air or swords in the Tarot deck. To invoke this angel light a stick of incense and call upon him to surround you with healing smoke. He is also associated with the book of Tobit or Tobias. Here he is in charge of healing oils or anointments. While studying the Tarot always say a prayer of enlightenment to help the veils of knowledge to be lifted so you can see clearly. You might meditate on the following scripture, which is from the Essence Gospel of Peace.
Seek the fresh air of the forest and of the fields, and there in the midst of them shall you find the angel of air. Put off your shoes and your clothing and suffer the angel of air to embrace all your body. Then breathe long and deeply, that the angel of air may be brought within you. I tell you truly, the angel of air shall cast out of your body all uncleanness which defiled it without and within. And thus shall all evil smelling and unclean things rise out of you, as the smoke of fire curls upwards and is lost in the sea of air. For I tell you truly, holy is the angel of air. Who cleanses all that is unclean and makes all evil smelling things of a sweet odor. No man may come before the face of God, whom the angel of air lets not pass. Truly, all must be born again by air and by truth, for your body breathes the air of the Earthly Mother and your spirit breathes the truth of the Heavenly Father."
