How well do you know the Archangels? We know about the main ones, but probably not so much about the lesser known angels. For the next couple of weeks we will feature and Archangel each day. So let’s start with Archangel Michael.
Also known as Saint Michael, Mikael, Miguel, Mika’il, Mikha’el, Beshter or Sabbathiel.
Michael’s name means “He who is like God”.Michael is probably the most famous of all the archangels. He’s been sainted, churches are named after him, he features prominently in the Bible and other sacred texts, and countless men are named after him.Ancient and modern artwork portray Michael as muscular and athletic with an intensely powerful expression and body language. Usually he’s painted with his sword poised above a pinned-down demon. This is to signify Michael’s primary purpose of slaying the ego and fear.As the defender of all that is pure, Michael is the epitome of strength and valour. He protects us physically, emotionally and psychically. Michael will protect against negative energies and will help cut the chords to the past. He will clear and shield you against negative energies.
Michael will help with your life’s purpose, help to guide your next step and make important life changes. He will also help with mechanical and electrical items that are causing problems.
You must, however, ask for Michael’s help and you must listen and act on the intuitive guidance he gives.
