What crystals do you recommend for working with Archangel Raphael?

And I feel that Archangel Raphael is definitely an angel I should talk about because he aligns closely with crystal therapy + crystal healing.

Archangel Raphael is known as:

  • the Supreme Angel of Healing; all kinds of healing—healing yourself & healing others, emotional or physical.
  • the Archangel of all those who are healers, therapists or light workers of any kind.

His name actually means “God Heals” and “Raph” is the Hebrew name for “healer”.

So for all of us energy, body & light workers out there, he’s our guardian, our sentinel.

When you work with him closely, pray to him, meditate on […]
