Who Is Archangel Michael?
Archangel Michael is a very well-known and famous angel. Did you know Michael is the only angel mentioned by name across three important religious texts?
The Bible, the Qur’an, and the Torah all name Michael as an angel of goodness, leading the fight against evil and sin.
Michael is also one of the only angels known specifically as an “archangel.” While there can be many archangels, the words specifically means “chief angel,” and Michael is the only angel known as a primary messenger in the Bible.
In fact, Michael the Archangel leads other angels in the Bible!
Michael is a leader, a warrior, and a champion of strength and goodness. He is well known as a protector, both over lands and people. Archangel Michael is a commander of angelic armies and takes this responsibility very seriously.
In fact, Michael the Archangel has been prophesied as playing a large role in our world’s end. While it is unclear how he will be involved, the Bible has hinted at his involvement.
Plus, knowing Michael’s inherent need to protect, there’s no doubt about him being there for those who believe in him!
Symbols of Archangel Michael
While we don’t know very much about what Archangel Michael looks like, there are several symbols and images associated with him. His portrayal in art tends to show him off as a brave soldier of God and a warrior for the people.
He always holds a flaming sword and sometimes a shield–weapons for a commander. He is also often depicted holding a set of scales, making him an angel of swift and keen justice. His wings are large and beautiful, and his overall presence is that of firm comfort.
Michael the Archangel is associated with the angel color blue, a color of power, strength, and protective energies. It’s a good color and symbol of his energies and spirit, something to keep in mind, especially if you are hoping to reach out to him!
Messages of Archangel Michael
Archangel Michael brings many messages to us, or often delegates these messages to other angels. He is a commander, after all. But this chief of angels may bring us many messages regarding our wellbeing or future.
He has already brought us the message of his assisting us in the end times or times of great catastrophe. This message applies on both a worldwide scale and a personal one. He may have a message for you should you be going through a difficult time!
The Archangel Michael always brings messages of justice and fairness, as these are things he believes in strongly. His messages will often be strict and swift, as he is an angel of many responsibilities.
Michael is also known for speaking and responding to anyone in a clear, commanding voice. If you are unsure if you’re hearing one of Michael’s messages, he will no doubt speak up and speak bluntly! While he is not a mean or hurtful angel, he likes to be heard correctly the first time.
While you may wish to call upon Archangel Michael for guidance, he is often the first to reach out. Thankfully, he is not one for much symbolism or confusion.
Should you receive a message from Archangel Michael, you’ll know it, and you should have very few questions afterward!
Guidance of Archangel Michael
Are you hoping to seek the guidance of Archangel Michael? What might he best assist you with? Michael is a wonderful protector, known for charging into battles without fear. Are you facing battles of your very own?
Michael the Archangel is best contacted for guidance of the self when you are feeling at your lowest. He is an angel that helps in times of crisis and personal destruction. If you need reassurance or help during a difficult time, Michael is no doubt already listening in.
Archangel Michael can also help guide you on any and all personal journeys you are undergoing. Are you wondering what your purpose in life might be?
Michael might be able to assist, though be prepared for a potentially blunt answer should you seek this angel’s guidance!
Michael is one of our many angelic cheerleaders, though he is more likely to use tough love than coddling. However, he knows how much you can handle, and there is no better-qualified angel should you seek his guidance.
How to Recognize Archangel Michael
Are you wondering if Archangel Michael has already reached out to you? Worried about missing his messages? Here are some ways of recognizing this powerful being.
You’ve Received Clear Voiced Messages
Archangel Michael doesn’t have the time to mess around. Have you heard a voice, loud and clear, telling you something? This could be Michael reaching out in the easiest way for all of us to understand: with his voice!
He may not be loud all the time; he may whisper or only reach out at certain times. However, his message should be clear and his words will be very to the point.
Consider meditation or other ways of clearing your mind should you believe he is reaching out to you!
You’ve Noticed Flashes of Blue Light
Blue is the color of Michael’s energy and presence, a comforting and commanding shade not to be missed. If you see flashes of blue or blue light when it is not normally present, be aware that Michael could be reaching out to you.
While some signs from our angels can be so subtle you might miss it, Archangel Michael rarely has this intention. Should you see blue light and believe it to be from Michael, he should make that very clear to you. After all, he’s making it known that he’s here to help you!
You’ve Felt Warm or Tingly Out of Nowhere
Our angels often utilize our senses to reach out to us, as our senses are directly linked to our personal intuition.
Feeling warm or tingly unexpectedly may be a subtle sign Michael is trying to reach you. It may be wise to meditate or reach out to him in prayer should you notice this occurring.
You’ve Had Clear and Peaceful Dreams
Archangel Michael brings peace after his battles, and his number one desire is to protect you. If you’ve had clear and comforting dreams, especially dreams featuring angels, this could be a sign from Michael himself.
Just like our senses, angels often reach out to us using the subconscious mind.
You should remember it when you wake up, and meditation or prayer should be a natural next step to your morning routine.
Letting Michael know you heard him loud and clear is always a good idea!
You Have a lot More Michaels in Your Life
Sometimes the simplest ways of reaching out are the best. Have you noticed an awful lot of Michaels coming into your life? Archangel Michael is known to have a sense of humor that accompanies his bluntness, and he may be sending more and more Michaels to you until you reach out to him!
Archangel Michael Number
While there are many numbers associated with our angels, Archangel Michael seems most associated with the number 11. He may reach out to you using the angel number 11, but what does this mean? Why is the number 1 so prominent with Michael the Archangel?
The number 1 is associated strongly with intuition, the self, and courage. Archangel Michael is one of our bravest angels, never shying away from a fight or a chance to stand up for the little guy. The number 11 is associated strongly with spiritual energy and heightened intuition.
The number 1 is about your own personal intuition, and the number 11 is associated with how you can best use your own intuition to assist others. The Archangel Michael is our primary protector and spiritual guide, so the number 11 suits him perfectly.
Should you be seeing the number 111 often, it could be Michael’s way of reaching out to you. This number, among many other signs already listed, shouldn’t be ignored. Though, as you’ve already learned, if Archangel Michael is trying to get in touch, you’ll know!
How to Connect with Archangel Michael
Like many of our angels, sometimes the easiest way to connect with Archangel Michael is through the power of prayer. You may be wondering how best to go about this, or what you should say. It’s never a bad idea to practice your prayer to yourself, as well as trying out these other ways of connection.
Make an Altar
Having an altar in your home can be useful in many spiritual situations. Dedicating an altar to Archangel Michael is one of the ultimate ways to reach out to him.
Consider offerings for him, what signs and symbols are associated with him, and plan to incorporate these things into your altar.
It is always a nice idea to burn a candle while praying or meditating at the altar, and the candle should be the color blue or perhaps even a St. Michael candle. Concentrating on the altar can help clear your mind and properly connect with your angels!
Pray on Michael’s Day of the Week
While Sunday is often a day of prayer, Sunday is also Michael’s day of the week! Praying to him on Sunday, in particular, may help you reach out to him easier. Sundays are often a day of relaxation and self-reflection. Michael wants to assist you in both of these things!
Use the Color Blue
Blue is Michael the Archangel’s color, without a doubt. Bringing more blue in your life can only assist in harnessing his energy and power. Use blue in your home, your outfits, your altar, and in your life in general. Michael is attracted to it and will notice!
