Archangel Raphael: eat a heathful diet, get adequate sleep, and exercise regularly for optimal health
Have you been ignoring your body and your mind, mentally, physically, emotionally or in any other way, recently?
Is this card speaking to you because you know, deep down, that you haven't been looking after yourself as well as you know you could do or should do?
Archangel Raphael is here today. He's heaven's physician and he's here to keep us healthy and encourage us to follow a healthy lifestyle. Like it says on the card, eat a healthy diet, get enough sleep, exercise regularly. But also, something that we quite often forget to do, is to find times during the day to just rest, have some me-time, some quiet time as well.
The card doesn't have a lot of symbolism or a lot of colours in it, but what I have noticed on the card are a few things.
If you look in the background at the colours, the colours at the base of the card feel a bit fuzzy. I don't know about you, but when I'm not looking after myself properly, I can feel a little bit fuzzy round the edges, life doesn't seem to flow as easily, I maybe don't have the same level of energy I could have, maybe I can't walk as far as I would like because I feel tired. The more you look after your health, the colour on the card changes. It starts to rise up until we reach a lovely dark blue colour, and that's the colour of strength. And it's saying the more you look after yourself, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually as well (because we are a soul being), that fuzziness will start to subside and you'll rise above it and become so much stronger. And when you are stronger, you can enjoy the vitality of life itself.
Archangel Raphael is associated with the colour emerald green. He's wearing green, here on the card. If you look at the green, the green is also changing colour. Green for me is about healing. So, as you look after your body, as you look at what you're putting in your mouth, as you look at how much sleep you're getting each night, as you look at the amount of exercise that you are receiving on a weekly and daily basis, you're starting to improve, heathwise, by really looking after these areas of your life. And as you do, the health and the healing turns to a lovely yellow colour. And yellow is the colour of self-belief, of optimism, of positivity.
You know it yourself. If you start a new exercise regime or you start to eat differently and healthily, and you stick with it. It's not something that will change you overnight, but when you stick with it for a while, you start to feel better. When you feel better, your optimism, your positivity, you look at life from a different point of view. Things that, maybe, used to pull you under are like water off a duck's back, now. They don't pull you under like they used to. You have a different way of looking at life which is from a more positive point of view.
His wings. His beautiful huge wings are a beautiful golden colour. And gold is the colour of success. So, if we heed Archangel Raphael's guidance and advice, and if we ask for him to step in and support us on our healthy journey, on our journey towards a more healthy lifestyle, he will bring with him success. Like I said, when you eat healthily, when you sleep well, when you exercise well, you have more energy, you have a better perspective of life, you have a better outlook of life. And things will come easier to you and you will become mroe successful in just being you, the beautiful soul that you are.
Those are the big things that caught my eye.
But whenever I looked at this card, there was one thing from the very beginning that caught my eye. And it's really quite a small thing that could be missed. And it's on his cape. There's a little brooch on his cape, a little red brooch. Slightly above, but it's near his heart chakra. And what Archangel Raphael is saying to us through that symbol, through the red brooch is that red is the colour of passion. And he's saying, for you to follow a healthy lifestyle, do things that you're passionate about; do things that light you up, that make you happy, because then you will continue to do them.
If you think, "I need more exercise" and you take yourself down to a gym and you really don't like the atmosphere in a gym, you don't enjoy being on a treadmill or anything like that, how long do you think you're going to keep doing it? Not very long. But if you follow something that you're passionate about... For example, maybe you're passionate about nature, so going out for a short walk amongst the trees, sitting down and laying against a tree, sucking up its beautiful energy, you'll do that more often because you really enjoy it.
The same with healthy eating. Don't cut out the 'bad' things immediately, the junk food, the comfort food, which isn't always good for you. Don't cut it all out immediately, but rather add in better foods as well so that you can enjoy your diet and you don't feel like you're being hard on yourself or restrictive. Find a passion. Maybe you find a new passion in cooking in certain ways. Perhaps following a certain type of cooking such as Indian or Asian or Korean. Finding something new and making it into a passion so you really enjoy it and you start to eat healthily.
That symbol, of the red brooch, is super tiny but it feels incredibly strong to me and incredibly powerful. For you to follow a healthy lifestyle, you need to do things that you really enjoy, that you're really passionate about because then you will continue to do them and it won't feel like it's a slog. And when you do follow a healthy regime for a few months, you'll notice a different person in yourself. You'll look healthier, you'll have more energy, and your outlook in life will be a lot more positive.
