Daily Angel Oracle Card: Rehael ~ Self Respect, from the Oracle Of The Angels, by Richard Webster
Rehael ~ Self Respect: “Rehael is the angel of self-respect and works tirelessly to inspire respect for one’s parents. He also works hard to promote humanitarian ideals. Rehael works with both the mind and the body, and promotes health and longevity. As Rehael belongs to the order of Powers, he wears armor and holds a sword.
Challenge From Rehael: “You may have a need to value yourself more. Think of your achievements and contributions to family, friends, and colleagues. Stand up for yourself, when necessary, and make sure your contributions are valued. Keep an eye on your thoughts and try to keep most of them positive. As well as your mind, you need to look after your physical body. Choose a form of exercise that you enjoy and make time for it on a regular basis”*

Look at the stance of angel Rehael. Note how powerful, direct and uncompromising his gaze. He holds his sword with both hands; observe that the hilt is bright red, the colour of the base chakra signifying safety, security, trust and belonging. See how he is protected by his armor, reminding us to create healthy boundaries that suit our levels of sensitivity and honor them as sacred. His indigo cloak reminds us of the importance of using our third eye, fearlessly seeking the truth through our own intuition and deep inner wisdom.
Rehael is encouraging us to release any shame, guilt and limitations that have previously held us back, and step boldly into our truth. He reminds us to see our own true value and connection to the Divine. He is asking us that we see our own true power, that we use it wisely and with respect. This is not about arrogance, there is no power trip; it is about confidence and strength of character. It is about seeing everyone as equal, removing the hierarchy and seeing the connection to everyone and every being in the Universe. This is true strength.
When we dis-empower ourselves, we deny the light which resides within us. When we tell ourselves that we are not worthy, we are turn away from the Divine spark of our Soul. When we see ourselves as less than another, allowing them to take control of our lives or make our decisions for us, we are moving away from alignment with our higher selves. Giving away our power is not selfless, it is detrimental to our sacred journey on our Soul path.
Rehael is here to guide us back into alignment with our Higher Selves, our Souls. He is asking that we trust in our intuition, and follow the guidance of our hearts. He is asking us to work with our physical bodies, moving the energy and creating a sense of balance and well being. He is reminding us to celebrate our achievements, focus on our victories and acknowledge what we are capable of. Keep our thoughts positive, and know that anything, in this mindset, is possible.
