Michael is probably the most famous of the archangels and even if you have not studied or worked with angels before, you are likely to have heard of or seen images of him.
He is the leader of all the Archangels and is in charge of protection, courage, strength, truth and integrity. He is truly a warrior and he is always depicted this way because of the acts that he has done and also how he helps us here on earth. Michael protects us physically, emotionally and psychically. His chief function is to rid the earth and its inhabitants of the toxins associated with fear. Michael carries a flaming sword that he uses to cut through etheric cords and protects us from negative entities that are internal and external.
In the Bible, Michael conquered the fallen Angel Satan, was in the Garden of Eden to teach Adam how to farm and care for his family, spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai and in 1950 he was canonized as Saint Michael, "the patron of Police Officers," because he helps with heroic deeds and bravery.
Michael is often experienced in our lives by seeing flashes of purple or gold. He very often is the archangel who saves people from near death experiences such as car accidents, drowning or other sudden traumatic experiences. The accounts of people seeing or experiencing him at these times are countless.
Sit quietly and ask Archangel to help you in any area of your life where you need a boost of strength or courage and allow his energy to flood your whole being and reconnect you with your TRUE strength, the strength of the Divine.
