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!
