Divine Feminine Meditation with Archangel Raguel.
Raguel's name means 'Friend of God'. Raguel is The Relationship Angel. Raguel's role is to oversee harmony in heaven, as well as on earth.
Dispense 1-3 drops of Ylang Ylang III oil (or any distillations of Ylang Ylang) on a cotton ball or smell strip.
Get into a comfortable position where you will not be disturbed. Your spine is completely supported and you can relax fully.
Begin to breathe in the lovely female scent of Ylang Ylang oil as you gently introduce its healing aroma and then exhale any tension or resistance. Allow yourself to relax more deeply as you continue to breathe in the scent of Ylang.
Focus at your heart area and call upon Raguel, "Dear Raguel I call upon you now to assist me in releasing any previous grievances I may hold toward myself or anyone else. Please help me to re-establish harmony within myself and with others. Thank you for helping me know any actions I need to take to bring peace and harmony to my world." And so it is.
Continue breathing as you allow yourself to relax more deeply. When you're ready focus your awareness at the area of your third chakra (solar plexus) located at the area of your diaphragm just above your navel. Continue breathing as you relax and release any tension from this area of your body.
When you are ready move your attention to your second (sexual/sacral) chakra located in your lower abdomen just below your navel. Continue breathing as you allow yourself to relax more deeply, releasing any tension in this area.
When you feel complete with your meditation allow yourself to just relax quietly for a few minutes.
If you received guidance for how to create more harmony in your life then take action immediately!
