Archangel Michael – Bringer of Light

Archangel Michael is known worldwide as being one of the most powerful angels of God. He sits at the ‘right hand of God’ and is known as ‘the Chief of Princes’. Some call St Michael the Archangel the ‘Bringer of Light’.  Michael the Archangel is the patron saint of police, soldiers, grocers, mariners. Some even say he often battles Satan! However, this is not how I find him, as he has always appeared to me with a loving and healing energy. He is also the patron saint of chivalry (who said chivalry was dead?). Numerous representations of St Michael the Archangel in art reflect his character as a warrior, but he was known in times of old as a renowned healer.

The British honours system appoints the Order of St. Michael to honour individuals who have given important services to the British Commonwealth. Well known spy 007 James Bond was appointed as ‘Companion’ to the Order of St. Michael in the movie From Russia With Love.

What Does He Look Like?

If you meditate or are clairvoyant, you may see Archangel Michael adopting different physical appearances. In Scandinavian countries, he has blond hair and fair skin whilst in America, he has appeared to black Americans with black hair and black skin. I have seen him with brown hair and fair skin. However he appears, there are similarities namely his huge size and strength of character. His gigantic powerful wings also set him apart from other angels. You can often see an electric blue light in his presence and he has the look of steely resolve in his eyes. You may also see the colours gold or white. He is an angel of few words and only says what is necessary, being very ‘economic’ with language.

When you are in the presence of Archangel Michael, there is no doubting him. Other angelic visitations pale into insignificance in comparison to his spiritual power and immense presence. Once you do see him, you will never forget him. He sometimes appears in the company of other angels known as the Heavenly Host, who are usually in the background or at his feet. Sometimes Michael the Archangel’s presence might be overwhelming so he sometimes sends messages through other angels.

How Can He Help You?

If you need courage or feel you are under spiritual attack, call upon Michael the Archangel to lend support to your Guardian Angel. This will give you strength during difficulties. You can say a prayer to St Michael when you need help. He is mentioned more than any other angel in the Bible, for example in Daniel 10 13, Daniel 12 and Revelation 12.

Catholics know him as Saint Michael the Archangel or just Saint Michael and celebrate his Feast Day on the 29th September, so this is a great day to meditate upon his presence. You can do a ritual burning incense and place some blue cellophane around the light in your room which will give everything a blue glow. He is also known as Michael the Great Prince, Angel Michael or Lord Michael. Archangel Michael is well known throughout other religions including Judaism, Islam and Bahai. He is the Guardian of Humanity and is available to help you when things get really tough.
