While St Raphael Archangel is seen by the Qabbalists as a solar chief of Malachim Entities, the Angel that healed Tobia’s eyes and fought Asmodeus, by the other side of the Atlantic Ocean He is transculturated with several Deities of African origins:
In Cuba, in the Santeria/Ifa He is Orisha Inle, a river deity with a complex and beautiful story, a kind of fac-totum Spirit, with healing qualities together with His companions Abata and Boyuto. In the Kimbisa Order He is Akari Nganga, an Mpungo of healing and herbal lore.
In Santo Domingo, He is Tindyó Alagwé, a Taino Loa, river Spirit.
In Italian Hermetic Tradition He is invoked using the latin psalm number LX for Healing.
May MEDICINA DEI, the Angel of Healing and Patron of Marriages bless you all with Health and Love!!!
