The first time I saw the painting of St. Michael the Archangel slaying the demon was at a youth retreat as a teen. The painting hung at the end of a hall, and I couldn’t take my eyes off of it whenever I walked down that corridor. At the time, I had no idea that it was Archangel Michael in the painting, I just knew that the painting gave me a sense of awe and a feeling of being comforted and safe.
Each time I look at this painting, I am once again captivated by its bright energy and a feeling of comfort knowing that I am always protected by the Divine energy of Archangel Michael. I have had many experiences working with Archangel Michael, and I am constantly surrounded by that same energy of hope, inspiration and security that I felt when I first laid eyes on him in that painting all those years ago.
The Archangel Michael
Michael is the most well-known of the Archangels. He is the angel associated with the attributes of strength, courage, truth, and purpose. Michael is a great angel to call on whenever we feel scared, anxious, or uncertain. He helps us to stand up for ourselves and speak our truth, as well as to clarify and strengthen our life purpose.
There are many ways to work with Archangel Michael, and all we have to do is ASK for his help, support and protection. Like all of the Archangels, his presence is not limited by time or space, so he can be everywhere at once. We never have to worry that our requests for his help will take away from someone else. The angels are here to assist us in moving to higher levels of love and peace, so please ask for their help!
As I discussed in last week’s blog, Oracle Cards are a great way to gain messages and encouragement from the angels, and Doreen Virtue’s Archangel Michael Oracle Cards are perfect for connecting with Archangel Michael.
Working with the Archangel Michael flower and gemstone essence and/or Archangel Michael Aromatherapy Spray can also help us connect with the attributes and qualities that Archangel Michael brings. The Archangel Michael flower and gemstone essence can help you gain clarity, courage, and speak your truth, while the Archangel Michael essence spray can cleanse your aura and environment. You can find both in our Angel Boutique or in our Online Store.
Below is one of my favorite ways to connect and work with Archangel Michael:
- In a quiet, relaxed environment, begin to breathe deeply as you relax and center yourself. We are more receptive to the angelic energies when we are centered and at peace.
- As you continue to breathe deeply, imagine a deep purple or cobalt blue light surrounding you. This is the pure light of Michael the Archangel. Feel, sense, imagine or think about Archangel Michael’s presence in the room with you.
- Ask Archangel Michael to scan your body and energy field for any areas of fear, anxiety, or negativity that you may have attracted throughout your day and to cut and dissolve away any lower energies with his brilliant blue sword of Truth.
- Imagine any areas of darkness, stress, or anything that is not of your highest good floating away and being taken to the pure white light of the angels accompanying Archangel Michael.
- Now imagine Archangel Michael putting a large vacuum hose in the top of your head, and turning on the suction.
- Visualize all areas of fear and darkness inside your body and around your organs being vaccumed away to the light with the help of Archangel Michael and his Band of Mercy. You can adjust the strength and speed of the vacuum to whatever is comfortable. Make sure you reach all the way down to the toes and the fingertips!
- Once you feel completely clean and clear, ask Archangel Michael to surround you in a protective cocoon of his deep purple and gold energy. You may also wish to visualize a purple cloak surrounding you from head to toe. This cloak of protection will keep you clear of any unwanted energy coming your way.
- Thank Archangel Michael for his healing and support.
It is recommended that you repeat this exercise daily to ensure that your energy stays strong and clear.
I wish you many blessings as you connect with one of my favorite Angels!
