Hello to you, Spirit!
Yes, we are all spirits... who happen to be having a experience in a human body right now. (At least we assume so if you are reading this!) And this human experience over lifetimes, includes feeling separated from God and then becoming the Prodigal Son or Prodigal Daughter... and returning, and reconnecting to the Source, the Creator, Supreme Being, Allah, Yahweh, God. (Choose the name you prefer.)
It also includes when on our path receiving help and guidance from healing spirits and angels. You are not left hanging out to dry, left out in the wilderness alone. You only think that.
All you have to do is call them. Call for help.
That is why Gongs Unlimited created our ArchAngel Prayer Gongs to be helpful in this spiritual communication, in meditation, prayer and healing.
Arch- is a prefix from the Greek language that means leading, or head or chief. Hence we often associate the ArchAngels with being leaders of Angels.
We don't claim to be experts in the various levels of angels like Seraphim and Cherubim and others, and where the ArchAngels fit into the hierarchy, but the Head Mallethead at Gongs Unlimited knows when he has clairvoyantly watched Archangel Michael at work... that Archangel Michael was pretty hardcore powerful! And the healing he received from Uriel was also of the "take no prisoners" type. And Raphael is a very focused and effective spiritual healer. And Gabriel! Of course, the wonderful Gabriel.
Although, not all of the Archangels are named in the canonical Bible, just Michael and Gabriel, there are other traditions that speak of seven of them.
We decided for our initial group of ArchAngel Gongs to go with the most famous four.
Their healing and communication is of Love, a strong love. They are "senior" to most of the deleterious energies that would keep you in darkness or away from the truth.
When you meditate to calm your mind and emotions and find your space, or when you pray for help or healing, allow the tone of the ArchAngel gong to help you, allow yourself to call the Archangel associated with the gong.
All these gongs have been blessed and set energetically by the ArchAngels to help you connect with them and your healing guides and the angelic realms and of course, God.
Who are they? These Angels? Some brief notes below. Obviously these are not comprehensive.
Raphael is on a 7 inch Ma Gong. This gong is similar to the 8 inch Ma Gong that Michael is on; it provides a clear bell-like tone. Sweet and light.
Raphael can be translated to "God who Heals," "or God, please Heal." In Islam, his name is Israfil.
According to many, Archangel Raphael is all about Healing and bringing you closer to God and your divinity. Remove blocks, receive compassionate energy, speak from your heart and be heard, Raphael can help.
Raphael is often pictured holding a staff and fish. The fish alludes to the Book of Tobit. In this book, Raphael was sent by God to help heal Tobit and his wife Sarah. Tobit had been blinded in an accident while Sarah was beset by a demon. (Not a particular fun set of circumstances.)
Raphael directed their son, named Tobias, to burn the liver of a fish to get rid of the demon. Then the Archangel told Tobias to make a poultice of the fish's gall bladder, which Tobias then applied to his father's eyes, curing his blindness.
Thankfully, you don't have to be blind and possessed to get Raphael's help.
GONGS UNLIMITED DESIGNS
Our ArchAngel Gongs were designed by a young Nebraska artist specifically for our gongs. We chose a simple design. Not only does this work better design wise, on a gong, it also allows you to focus on the energy of the archangel, and not get caught up in the visual spectacle.
These images are printed on the gongs using a process that involves ultraviolet light, NOT silkscreen, so they are on the gongs in a more permanent manner.
