I have been reflecting on my childhood and trying to glean some sort of insight on how I want to raise my children. The death of my mother really hit me hard today. I cried over the fact that she will never get to hold her grandchildren (neither I or my sister have kids yet). I felt sad for my father who does not have long left either. With those two in mind I decided to make todays ritual all about me (I told you I am a selfish man after all).
A little bit of info may be needed here. My workaholic father suffered from a stroke/heart attack combo in late 2010. He has since be unable to take care of himself. My mother took care of my father until her death from cancer this past Halloween. I am 27 I know that my parents are mortal and everyone's body breaks down and eventually dies, but this is too early. I don't want this to happen to me and my kids, I want to be able to see my grandkids while in this life.
If Raphael is the Divine Physician I wanted him to see to it that I didn't suffer from these illnesses. Once he appeared I asked him to purge my body from any cancer that may be present. He set to work in much the same fashion that he taught me when we were healing my ancestral line together. To be brief, in a word things got hot. I sweat a great deal in an air conditioned room. I felt like I was burning up and I almost couldn't take it. After what seemed like forever Raphael informed me that he was done. He gave me a once over and didn't find anything to worry about (side note I am still going to get screened at a Dr. office for cancer, I am not going to write off Western Medicine)
As for the stroke and heart attack Raphael just told me to take care of my body. Meditate, de-stress, and eat good foods. He reiterated what he told me in the beginning about treating my body like a machine. He then laughed and told me not to worry so much as long as I take care of myself, myself will take care of me.
