The Sword of Saint Michael and the Healing Crystal of Raphael

The Sword of St. Michael and the Raphael Healing Crystal

I recently attended a transformation conference in Arkansas.  Although I was busy doing readings and energy work, I still made time to visit the tables of my friends from Colorado.  Although I had intended to stay away, because they always have such wonderful metaphysical goodies, something kept pulling me over there.

They weren’t even completely set up when I couldn’t take it any more.  I walked over to the table to say hello and the energy of a certain object laying on the table pulled me right to it.

My good intentions flew right out the window and I knew I had to ask them to put this back for me, that this was a tool I was ready to use.  I’ve seen many selenite swords, and have felt for some time that I would eventually own one, but never have I connected with any of them the way that I connected with this one.

As I held it in my hands with the first time, I could see in my mind’s eye a large double terminated crystal that I have had, and have worked with in my healing, for at least 15 years.  ” Coincidentally”, this double terminated crystal was a part of the healing grid I had set up in my  booth.  I have always felt the energy of Archangel Raphael was associated with this crystal.

As I held the sword of Saint Michael in my right hand, and the Raphael healing crystal in my left, I felt this thrum of energy  move through my field, and an immediate shift in my awareness.  My consciousness was still present, but I had the sensation of being guided in the moment by something far greater than myself.  What I know is that this is a powerful combination.

I have not yet had the opportunity to work actively with this combined energy, but hopefully I will find some people willing to allow me to fine tune whatever it is the angels would have me do with these tools.

I was impressed to retrieve the Sword of Saint Michael from my healing room, so I brought in here to sit with it for a moment.  What follows are the words that came to me from the silence.

And Michael said to me:  I have brought into your possession a gift, a tool to be used for the healing and the cleansing of all who would seek to raise themselves up at this time.

The maker of this sword was not consciously aware that this was a gift I intended to come into your hands.  I personally oversaw the construction of this particular sword.  With this sword, and my instruction, you shall do mighty work.

With my sword, you will cut the ties that bind and release the burdens that hold them back.  You shall use the crystal of Raphael to heal the wounds they carry.

Together, our combined energies shall raise them up.  And so it is.

Make yourself familiar with the angels, and behold them frequently in spirit; for without being seen they are present with you. ~ St Frances de Seles

Before the Light Appears…

Up Before the Sun Today

I was awakened this morning earlier than usual.  I don’t stay in bed if I cannot sleep, so I got up and came to the writing space.  I can hear the birds beginning to sing the world awake.  Full-throated chanting, repeated in rounds. When I sat in the silence for a moment, feeling my way into why I was not still asleep, this is what came to me:

In the moments just before the Light breaks across the horizon, there was still in the mind of ancient man a question as to whether it would or not.  Ceremony was often done, prayers were offered, to ensure the return of the life-giving Light of the sun.  We stand now, cosmically, in the pre-dawn darkness of the next age, and although we may be able to prove scientifically that the sun will continue to rise, we cannot state with absolute certainty that it will.  That is the beauty of our human experience.

We cannot state with absolute certainty that there is no greater intelligence that governs this creation, or that this is a creation at all.  As for the existence of angels, the messengers of this greater power, well, there’s no proof of their existence, either.  But look into the face of a newborn, and you can almost touch Heaven.

I have noticed an interesting trend in my relationship with the spirit helpers around me:  the more I engage the energy, the more present they feel to me.  I started to draw and paint angels about six years ago, and it was also around that time that I began to work with them in a more active and engaged way in my daily life.

Often when I feel the flush of inspiration, I know it is the prompting of angels to move me to express that which would come through me as an instrument of higher light frequencies.  I understand that if I can stay in the energy while I am working, the thing that is created becomes a portal or an anchor for those light frequencies, and the more ways in which the Light can enter this realm, the more quickly this realm can be transformed.

I was awakened before the sun rose today, and this is what I heard.

There is a Light that shines beyond all things on Earth, beyond us all, beyond the Heavens, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens.  This is the Light that shines in our hearts. ~ Chandogya Upanishands
