The Little Engine That Could

Dear Friends of Raphael!

An analogy that Raphael has been using lately has been profoundly accurate. I call it, “The Little Engine That Could!” Raphael explains that only in your physical body are you most powerful in creating beauty and goodness in your world.

When you pass over to the next dimension, you leave your emotional body behind and consequently, you do not have the same power to create as you do in your physical body.

You are a powerful being of light! Your emotions are that “little engine” that takes God’s divine energy and with your creative imagination, can change an abstract idea into a physical reality.

Take a look at my page on art. My “Symbols” rug is an example of this. When I received this vision, I quickly drew the design on a piece of paper and then set out to find the materials to make it. I had never seen this kind of rug-hooking before. I knew it wasn’t Latch-hook, which used yarn and made a shaggy-carpet look. I saw it as little loops that looked more like needlepoint. And it turned out that none of the people in the craft stores knew what I was talking about either. Living then in Michigan I even went to my neighbor, Canada to search the craft stores there, but again no one knew what I was talking about. I searched stores for months! Then, I finally went to the library–and there it was–“Traditional and Primitive Rug Hooking.” It used 100% wool and mostly from old clothing. It took another while before I found a store that sold beautiful light-weight wool for hooking. The owner gave me four lessons, while I gave her readings in exchange and within a year, my Symbol’s rug was born.

But to create this beautiful rug, I had to have my emotional engine full of faith and hope and the belief that the inspiration I’d been given was worth exploring–and creating. When it made the pick for the Rug-Hooking magazine’s yearly book, “Celebration of Hand-Hooked Rugs,” I was thrilled. It was examined individually by a whole panel of professional rug-hookers and every one found it worthy to be in this beautiful book.

When your mind is given an inspiration, your emotions kick in, ready to judge it worthy of your time and energy. It takes trust in yourself and a joyous belief that you can make the idea a reality. You are a co-creator with God. You can create the most amazing things. But only if your emotional engine is full. If you are experiencing anxiety, fear and doubt, your engine is running on empty and you are going nowhere. You can find yourself depressed, lethargic, and eventually ill.

Every night before you go to sleep, take time to visualize you are re-charging your seven energy centers. Think of them as precious jewels that need polishing and cleaning of the day’s negative experiences. It’s like charging up the batteries in your cell phone. That’s why God made it so every living creature needed to sleep–to cleanse and recharge those energy centers that include your emotions.

So, dear friends, charge up your engine for each day to be all that God knows you can be. Have faith and trust that you were created uniquely to be what only you can be, to do only what you can do, and to create in this world called Planet Earth only what you were divinely created to birth the ideas inspired by God.

With profound love and joy!

I’m Back!

I apologize for neglecting this beautiful web page that is my connection to you! Writing novels has swept me up into a whole new world–besides now hosting my own radio show! Check it out on Tuesdays at noon on It’s called “Ask Raphael.” All you have to do is ask your questions through the chat room and I will see it on my computer and answer it live. What a joy this experience has been! This opportunity to spread the word about Raphael, walked in one day when my friend, Michelle Kulp came to visit me in Florida. She said, “You should have your own radio show!” Within an hour, I had a radio show! Raphael really wants more people to take advantage of his communication to our world. Remember! My readings are now free. E-mail me at and we can set up a time.

I hope you’ve also checked out the new covers on my novel series now published on Amazon, “Soul Mates & Angels–the Anita Lyn Series.” The first book entitled “Bigotry” made the #1 Best Seller’s list, and the second in the series called “Greed” is on it’s way to #1! I’m working on the third book entitled, “Fraud!” and have at least two more titles already in the works. Who would have thought that in my 80’s I would be an author of a best-selling series of books called “Soul Mates & Angels!”

After her reading one lady–bless her–asked how she could repay me for the gift I had given her. I was inspired to ask her to support Raphael’s work by purchasing his books and this is why I am now encouraging you to do so. Think about sending Raphael’s wisdom to friends. Christmas is around the corner–gift your friends with the uplifting and inspiring book, “Letters from a Guarding Angel.”

I consider myself only the telephone for Raphael. When I begin a “reading” with my prayer, I ask that Betty Rae be put aside, and only the wisdom of the archangel be heard. And it is so. I also am uplifted and energized by each reading. But I don’t always remember what was said. I have to go back into a light trance state to recall anything. And, of course, there is complete confidentiality!

So, dear friends, don’t hesitate to call me for a chat with Raphael. Since I’m no longer charging, I’ve been a whole lot busier! But I can always find time to speak with you.

Blessings in Abundance to each of you!

Readings with Raphael now FREE!

Readings with Raphael are now FREE!

Yes! You read it right. I am now sharing the wisdom of Raphael at no charge. I love the energy that comes from the readings and benefit as much as the people who call upon Raphael for help. And because I have been so blessed in so many ways, I am “Paying it Forward!” by giving free readings with the Archangel.

Just e-mail me at:  I will ask that you give me times you are available. I will get back to you as quickly as possible.



Season’s Blessings to Each of You!

A Blessed Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!

Dear Friends!

We all wonder where 2017 went! It seems time has speeded up and we are caught in a whirlwind of activities that make us dizzy. I know it has been that way for me. But as I look back on 2017 I rejoice in it!

Book II of the Anita Lyn Series, now called “Memoirs of a Mystic” is now available on Amazon both in e-book on Kindle and in paperback.

Thank you for all your support in making my first novel, “Soul Mates & Angels” a #1 Best Seller. I know you will enjoy this second fictional adventure of Anita Lyn as she unravels an insidious plot to sell babies on the black market.

Meanwhile, my amazing spirit guides and angels have already sent me the title for Book III — The Crooked Shamrock — where Anita Lyn will meet her cousin in Ireland who is an amazing artist–and a practical joker bar none! I expect to envision many scenes where Shawn has us laughing…and gets Anita into trouble with art fraud.

I encourage each of you to follow your divine inspiration to create an amazing life filled with surprises galore in 2018.

Here Comes November!

Hi November!

Welcome Fall!

We’ll miss you, Summer!

But not the 100 degree heat we’ve had most of the summer here in Florida!  Yet, I wouldn’t move back to Michigan’s winters for anything!

Fall is a time for introspection, for meditation and new resolutions. Don’t wait until New Year’s Day to make them. Make one new resolution each day like,  “Today I will refrain from snacks–just for today!” Or, “Today I will spend 20 minutes in meditation.” Or “Today I will greet everyone with a smile and a thought of good will.” Or “Today I will listen patiently to “Blabbermouth.”

Fall sends the kids back to school. Are you sighing in relief? Pray for teachers! Having been one, my heart goes out to them with the burden of  “teaching to tests” that steals the teacher’s creativity and enthusiasm, and bores kids silly.

“The Bottom Line” mentality doesn’t work in education. Parents can made a difference by encouraging your schools to teach social skills, like compassion and kindness toward one another.

In 1949, Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote “South Pacific.” With the recent uprising of white racism, one song comes to mind, “You Have To Be Carefully Taught.” I’m adding the lyrics here to emphasize how much we influence the young people in our lives by what we say and do.

“You’ve got to be taught to hate and fear, You’ve got to be taught from year to year. It’s got to be drummed in your dear little ear. You’ve got to be carefully taught. You’ve got to be taught to be afraid of people whose eyes are oddly made, and people whose skin is a different shade. You’ve got to be carefully taught. You’ve got to be taught before it’s too late, before you are six or seven or eight, to hate all the people your relatives hate. You’ve got to be carefully taught!”

These words were reflected also in my first novel, “Soul Mates & Angels”  published just this past February. It’s the story of Anita Lyn Riley who meets a young friend who was in a Nazi labor camp and had numbers tattooed on his arm. If you haven’t read it yet, go to “books” on my web page and order it now. It’s become a two times #1 Best Seller on Amazon.

And I’m excited to announce the second book in the series is now at the editors and hopefully will be available on Amazon’s Kindle before Thanksgiving or early in December. Look for it. In this novel Anita Lyn gets involved with an insidious group of people who sell babies on the black market. With Anita’s guardian angel, Alana, the book is sprinkled with angelic wisdom. And with the ongoing relationship with Anita’s soul mate,  it has its moments of passion, too. I would love to have your comments and feedback after you’ve read it.

Book three in the series came to me from Spirit, “out of the blue.” I heard, “Crooked Shamrock” and puzzled over what it meant–until I realized the third novel I was already working on was to be the fourth novel, while  “Crooked Shamrock” was to take it’s place! It will be about art forgery and will involve Anita’s cousin, Shawn, who is an amazingly talented artist.

I’m truly in awe of my new career as a novelist. I call myself the “Grandma Moses” of the writer’s world! At least two more plots in the series are cooking in my brain. I call my main character a modern-day Nancy Drew, as she solves one mystery after another.

This “new career” of writing novels is the result of many years of journal writing. By writing my thoughts and emotions and dreams, I’ve learned to hear my angels and guides and their loving encouragement in my everyday life. I’ve learned to listen and hear “Crooked Shamrock” and be inspired about a new plot God wants me to write. All of us are instruments of God’s thoughts, which motivate us to create beauty, wisdom and joy in our world.

May your angels bless you this day with inspiration to bring love, compassion and joy into your world–first for yourself–and then for all you meet.

Angelic blessings to each of you!

October Already?

It’s October–Already?

If you’re at all like me–perhaps it’s just old age–but time is zipping by way too fast. Raphael says it’s not time going faster, but “cause and effect”. In other words, what you send out comes right back like a boomerang and either slaps you in the face, or kisses you on the cheek.

Even hurricanes are demonstrating the law of cause and effect. There’s a “butterfly effect” theory that says what can happen on the other side of the globe, will eventually be felt wherever you are. So…? Doesn’t it make sense that North Korea’s bombs could be part of the turbulent weather here? I’m no scientist, but if you hurt Mother Earth, she’s bound to retaliate somewhere, like a shaggy dog shaking the water off his back!

We all need to visualize Mother Earth happy–with her body being nourished and pampered–and healed. Hold the picture of a thriving, healthy planet with gratefulness and joy–for your emotions are the engine that drives an idea into manifestation–and then work like the dickens to make it a reality in whatever way you are inspired.

We all need to do our part–mine is to hold the picture of a thriving, happy planet. What’s yours!?

A Letter to my Friends and Angels

Dear Friends,

I’m so excited to announce that my second novel in the series of Soul Mates & Angels has been sent to the publisher with hopes of it’s debut next month! Anita Lyn is on another adventure you don’t want to miss. And I’m already drafting books three and four!

Raphael is pushing to bring peace to our trouble world and is speaking loud and clear. With the eclipse we have entered a new era where consciousness will rise and people will finally awaken. Now is the time for each of us to speak our truth, to let go of fear and doubt and stand up for what is right and good. Now is the time to ask an army of angels to bless our country and the world with peace.

Pray with me daily. Smile with love and compassion at each person you meet. Laugh often.

Love and Blessings to each of you!

Betty Rae






Happy Spring!

Happy Spring Everyone!

The days are getting longer and the nights are warmer. Yeah! Even here in Florida I love watching the trees come alive again, turning green and filling out. Although we have flowers year round, which is one of the things that brought me from Michigan to Florida, new colors and exotic ones push through the earth and smile at us. I never get tired of watching nature. My back yard with the Sacred Spiral, the five-foot waterfall, and the many flowers and plants, all bring me such joy.

Speaking of joy…have you had your joy vitamin today? Lifting your mind and heart out of anxiety, stress and frustration is only done by welcoming in the Angel of Joy. It can’t happen unless and until you are ready to stop trying so hard to “fix” things yourself and wait for divine inspiration to give the “Go Ahead” signal. For example, after investing in a new roof for my home, the ceiling in the kitchen caved in! What a mess! I quickly informed the roofers, who stopped stamping on the roof to come in and take a look. It was around the skylight, which was rotten from a leak that started the whole process of getting a new roof.

The young man took pictures and said he would send out his boss to take a look. The owner’s son arrived two days later, checked out all the leak spots and gave suggestions on how to have a handyman fix it. He said by no means allow anyone to talk me into a new ceiling. I agreed with him. Then he offered a small cash boost from his company to help defray my cost. He didn’t have to do that. It was clearly my responsibility due to the decay of a roof leak over time around a skylight. But I joyously accepted the gift from “All Florida Weatherproofing and Construction, Inc.” I told the owner, Rick Fulford if he did a good job I would give his company’s card to others. I am very pleased with his work and his men who  worked over eleven hours to complete it in one day.–another gift of Joy!

I know. We cannot possibly be joyful all of the time. But maybe we need to check the percentage. If it is under 80%, we need to do some soul searching to see how we recreate our world…for we are, indeed, totally responsible for how we choose to react to the world within which we live. We can either bitch and complain and stress, or we can see beauty everywhere and give joyous thanks. When we do confront a leak in our world’s roof, we can call upon the angels to help us with ideas to patch the leak or get a new roof-attitude.

Happy, happy, happy Spring!

# 1 Best Seller!

Dear Friends,

I still can’t believe it! My novel, Soul Mates & Angels,  has made the #1 best seller’s list–on two different lists! I’m thrilled and amazed. I give grateful thanks to my agent, Michelle Kulp for all her work in making this dream a reality.

And for those of you who have asked when the next book is coming out–I’m working day and night to bring to you Anita Lyn Riley’s new adventures. With her curious spirit enhanced with the help of her guardian angel, Alan, she continues to be that Nancy Drew sleuth, which, of course gets her into trouble. Now she is at the University of Michigan and is living in a boarding house with seven housemates! Each one has a story to tell, including her housemother, Mrs. Wright and her daughter, Flora Wright. Anita’s soul mate, Daniel O’Keefe struggles to keep their love in check, but both find it harder and harder. His life is changing as he attends Wayne State University and becomes involved with a whole different kind of ambitions, worldly-wise friends.

So, thanks for your wonderful reviews. They are what has catapulted me to #1. Tell your friends about it and ask them to tell their friends! I so appreciate your encouragement in this new world of fiction. As you know Raphael has inspired many works where he has communicated through me for the raising of people’s consciousness. In today’s world where fear is rampant, lifting our hearts up to trust the divine plan for each life, and to love one another without prejudice has become a real challenge. We encourage you to choose love over fear, and trust over doubt. No matter what political view you hold, hold on to your faith in a loving God who sends angels to assist us. But they cannot help unless we ask. SO ASK!

Sending you an abundance of blessings, I remain,

Betty Rae
