Since your body, mind, and spirit are intricately connected and work together as a system, any fear you experience results in stress to your system that can eventually show up in the form of physical illness or injury. When that happens, you can ask both of these great angels to join forces to help you. Here's how to work with Michael and Raphael as partners for healing: Seek Courage from Michael and Guidance from Raphael Start by seeking help from Michael and Raphael that reflects each of their specialties. Michael is an expert in empowering people with courage, so you can pray or meditate to connect with Michael and get the courage you need to overcome your fear. Raphael is a master physician who prescribes just the right treatment plan for people in pain. So you can contact Raphael through prayer or meditation for guidance about exactly which steps to take in your healing process. "Archangels Michael and Raphael work so well in tandem that their relationship feels akin to to a friendship. They truly complement each other's gifts, and together offer an unstoppable combination of powerful healing abililties," writes Doreen Virtue in her book The Miracles of Archangel Michael. "... Although Raphael is the chief healing angel, it's always helpful to ask Michael to be involved in the face of any frightening situation." Identify What Type of Fear is Contributing to Your Pain Working together, Michael and Raphael can scan your body to diagnose exactly what kind of energy is traveling through the many connections it has with your soul. Any negative energy from fear may be contributing to the pain you feel. Ask Michael to show you specifically what type of fear is a factor in causing the physical pain you're feeling. For example, if you're suffering from pain in your jaw, it may be from grinding your teeth at night during nightmares, and Archangel Michael can free you from fearful nightmares. "Many illnesses have an emotional cause," writes Richard Webster in his book Communicating with the Archangel Raphael for Healing and Creativity. "... Problems of this sort can be resolved by asking Raphael to help you understand the underlying reasons behind the illness. Once the original cause is known, you can take steps to resolve the difficulty." Since it's so stressful to be suffering from pain, the fear you feel may simply be a direct result of having to deal with the pain itself. In that case, Michael can give you the peace you need for going through the healing process as Raphael leads you from step to step. "Michael and Raphael work together to help us in our healing processes; it's not an either/or situation when angels are involved," writes Eileen Elias Freeman in her book Angelic Healing: Working with Your Angels to Heal Your Life. "When the need for healing is serious, as, for example when someone is emotionally distraught following the death of a loved one, the protection of Michael is a key part of the healing process. The great archangel can, in a metaphorical sense, spread his wings around us to shield us from harmful influences that might prevent us from concentrating on our healing." Michael and Raphael can give you an accurate diagnosis of what's going on in both your body and soul so you can focus your healing efforts in the right way. Let Go of Fear to Clear the Way for Healing The next step is simply to let go of the fear -- and any other negative emotion that results from fear, such as anger or anxiety -- so you can receive the healing that Michael and Raphael want to send your way. Once you use your God-given free will choose to let go of fear, Michael and Raphael can clear away the fear that has attached to your body in the form of negative energy. "The archangels Michael and Raphael often work as a team to remove negative beings from people and places," writes Eva-Maria Mora in her book Quantum Angel Healing: Energy Therapy and Communication with Angels. Mora suggests in Quantum Angel Healing to ask Michael to, "Please come with your sword of light and cut all negative energetic connections with persons, situations, places, and objects that are harmful for me and/or rob me of my life force energy" while also asking Raphael to help send his healing energy into the situation. "I've seen people instantly heal from chronic pain following Michael's intervention," Virtue writes in The Miracles of Archangel Michael. "That's because a lot of spinal and muscular pain stems from fear-based cords and negative energy. Once Michael removes these sources, it goes away." Raphael is also powerfully effective at relieving pain in all of its forms. "Raphael, as the archangel of healing, wants you to enjoy good health mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically," Webster writes in Communicating with the Archangel Raphael for Healing and Creativity.
