Archangel Michael (or Saint Michael) is said to be the most powerful and chief archangel. When I’ve asked for help from Archangel Michael, he indeed felt like a large presence, extremely strong, making me and others with me feel safe when he was around. He has appeared both as a voice and a presence that I could hear & feel, but could not see.
Archangel Michael protects you, and puts you on track with your soul’s mission. His support allows you to let go of fear. In this way, he heals you on all levels: mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
Attributes of Archangel Michael: Treading on satan or a serpent; carrying a banner, scales, and sword
Archangel Michael as Protector
In a religious context, archangel Micheal has been called “Prince of light, leading forces of God against the darkness of evil.”
Call upon Archangel Micheal to protect you from thoughts that are of a lower vibration, such as fear; from malicious people; as well as from disturbing lost souls. Or put otherwise: to protect you from the satan and his every influence. Saint Michael will help you to feel secure and to be secure.
I have posted below in the grey box, a message by Archangel Michael for lightworkers’ protection, that is of use to Reiki practitioners, and ha, myself as well. Reading it will clarify how you can invite Archangel Micheal into your daily Reiki practice.
Archangel Michael as Guide to Our Life’s Purpose
Beyond offering protection from dangerous forces, Archangel Michael is also the archangel who guides our divine life’s purpose. He offers loving but to-the-point advice on how to work on this life’s purpose without delay. You too can ask for advice and assistance in ways that are for your highest good.
I began connecting with Archangel Michael during the Reiki treatment sessions for one particular client, who was keen on his direction. And indeed he responded to her with practical and directive answers. As I talked to him, he showed a wonderful sense of humor. His choice of words was really funny. However, he not fooling around with respect to the content of his advice. In my experience, he has always been direct, clear, practical plus kind-hearted. His words related to both our heads and hearts.
These days I contact Archangel Michael daily. I love it how when I ask for advice to Archangel Michael, he can, with a single, practical, actionable suggestion, completely change my perspective, my mood, my actions and immediate direction in my life, bringing me back to my core focus of what is important for me. I now have made it a habit, whenever I take a break after a stretch of intense work, to ask: ‘What’s the best use of my time next?’ Instantly, I’m brought back to the bigger picture of my life, clear on what to do next.
Archangel Micheal and the Other Archangels
Archangel Michael is the chief of all archangels. I will write about other important archangels in further articles, as well as explain how you can determine which archangel is assigned to you personally.
Meanwhile, call to Archangel Michael for protection and guidance. You can create your own prayer based upon your own belief system and personal needs. Here is the religious prayer by Pope Leone XIII: “St. Michael the Archangel, protect us in the fight and be our help against the wickedness and snares of the devil. Amen.” (Translated from Italian).
You Are Safe: A Message from Archangel Michael through Doreen Virtue
“You are safe and protected in all ways, so let down and let go of your veils of fear. Fear only protects you from experiencing the essence of love. Fear and worry do not protect you or your future.
“I am seeing an increasing number of lightworkers who are highly sensitive, as absorbing the lower energies and rays of the people whom they’re helping. When you absorb the fear energy of others’ thoughts and emotions, you may notice your energy sagging and your health feeling compromised.
“Some lightworkers are depressed, and this depression is one-hundred percent attributable to the absorption of other people’s energy. And yet lightworkers attribute their depression to other factors, and so miss the solution which is so easily accessible: Ask me to participate in ANY healing, teaching, helping, or counseling session in which you engage. Whether or not you are paid is irrelevant. Any time you are engaged in giving, call upon me immediately. I will act as an intermediary in the energy exchange between you and whomever you’re helping. I will purify all words, actions, and emotions as they’re given and received between you. That way, you’re both assured of receiving only the pure essence of love, as it’s intended.
“I hold great admiration for the process of spiritual unfoldment and understanding in which you are engaged. You are being called to operate at increasingly higher levels of duty and you often engage in these teachings during your dream time and with soul travel. I admire the human courage it takes to be of service during these times. YOU and your services are definitely needed and I am here to make the process as smooth as I possibly can. Call upon me often, and be open to my help and love always. I am Michael.”
In case you wonder, if I talk to Archangel Michael, how come I don’t have a book out on Archangel Michael? … well, stay tuned. He will become very mainstream in my life shortly. This year, I am planning to relocate to Italy, adjacent to a town where people go for pilgrimage to meet Archangel Michael. It is extra-ordinary beautiful there, and in the near future, I will reveal more….

Thanks for this article, Astrid
I look forward to ur next article as to how to find which archangel is assigned to take care of me and i am interested in learning more about how to connect to them.
Michael is also my “go to” guy. The first one I call in when performing readings or energy sessions for clients. He was instrumental in the writing of my children’s book about angels. He is very much like a big brother and I encourage others to think of him like this as well. He will guide you, protect you, and tease you to keep you on track but most of all, he will love you.
Did you know that Michael is also the patron saint of the police force in the United States? He governs not only the solar plexus chakra (along with Archangel Jophiel)- the place of empowerment, but also the throat allowing us to speak our truth with true empowerment.
Wishing all a glorious day full of angelic joy & wonderment.
Oneness World Healing says
Thanks for you contribution, Christine.
Oh yes, Archangel Michael is the saint patron of all ‘warriors of light’: including police and army.
It is interesting that you also note his sense of humor & tease, as I have. I find this quite remarkable.
In addition, it is interesting that you are relating to Archangel Michael as very male. When we think of angels in general we tend to thing of more ‘feminine’ and sweet entities. Another ‘We Are One World Healing’ participant notes how Jesus is very male in his relationship with her.
And a glorious day to you!

Astrid, would like to meet up with you?
To train under you.
Hi! I need major help and hear that Arch Angel Micheal is great to help anyone who calls on him for help. Sadly, I have been trying to get help from angels and saints and I get nothing. I don’t know if i am doing something wrong but I don’t see anything.
Right now I need not help but it appears a miracle in my life. Nothing at ALL is going right for me and the family and the harder we work and try the further back we are tossed and drained, to the point it is affecting our health too and there is nothing much we can do. Called on the angels as everyone says and talks so much about but it appears the angels are too busy or paying a deaf ear to me.
Anyway, if there is a way for help that I do not know about, can you guide me in the direction.
Thanks and have a blessed day.
I’m a bit new with this and it might sound a bit crazy- but I’m having a connection with something- BIG. I’ve been to reiki session, and this is the year of spiritual growth for me, but how do I know with whom I’m connecting? Most of the time this presence/connection is with me during my sleep, or when I’m training? I absolutely love angels, but I think I’m sometimes scared of them? Especially if I wake up at 3 and I feel something there? Its just a fright, but I always go back to sleep calmly? As if I’m safe?
During hectic physical training I can feel this big presence- especially when I’m running? Are they trying to tell me something?
Please help? Or give me guidance
From a Christian biblical perspective there are only two angels that are specifically mentioned by name. Archangel Michael and Archangel Gabriel. There are five scriptures that tell us that Michael is a warrior ~Daniel 10:13
~Daniel 10:21 ~Daniel 12:1 ~Jude 1:9 ~Revelation 12:7
Likewise the Biblical references to Gabriel are positive ~Daniel 8:16 ~Daniel 9:21 ~Luke 1:19 ~Luke 1:26
In the above scriptures in Daniel, Daniel had a vision and sought to know the meaning of it. Gabriel was sent to Daniel to tell him of the meaning of the vision. Gabriel came again to Daniel while he was praying to tell him of times to come. Gabriel flew swiftly away.
Gabriel also appeared to Zacharias to tell him of the great news that his wife Elizabeth will bear a child and they are to call him John. When Elizabeth was 6 months pregnant, Gabriel was sent from God to Nazareth to tell Mary of the most wonderful news! Jesus! He also told her of the great news of her cousin Elizabeth who was going to have a child also!
However the Bible also warns us that we are not to worship angels
~Judges 13:16 ~Colossians 2:18 ~Revelation 22:8 ~Revelation 22:9
In the first verse, the angel that appeared to Manoah told him not to offer a burnt offering to them, but unto the Lord.
Paul writes a warning to the church at Colosse not to worship angels.
In Revelation, the angel tells John not to worship at their feet.
Why does the Bible warn us not to do this? The answer I strongly beleive is to instead put your faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible warns us that a third of the angels rebelled against God and thus we have lucifer (the great deceiver) and his demonic hordes. When you allow an Angel Guide into your soul are you 100% sure you are not being deceived? Please think about it before it is too late. In the meantime, please accept my prayers for you as I suggest you all drop your crystals or throw them away, and i urge you to start following the greatest healer of them all!
In Jesus name. Amen
