Michael was the first angel that God created and is the head and leader of all the archangels. Archangel Michael is often depicted carrying a flaming sword and this sword is used to cut through etheric cords and protect against harm and evil. Archangel Michael’s role is to offer protection – physically, emotionally and psychically – and to help rid the earth of fear, anxiety and harmful toxins.
The ray of light associated with Archangel Michael is that of the blue ray of protection. If you feel in need of protection, then call on Archangel Michael and ask to be protected with the blue ray of light – you may even get to see flashes or blue light or small sparks of blue. Many lightworkers work regularly with Archangel Michael. As well as being a protective figure, he’s also associated with courage, strength, truth and integrity.
According to Christian beliefs, Michael was involved in various monumental occasions. For example, it was Michael that helped teach Adam, in the Garden of Eden, to care for his family and farm the land and he spoke to Moses on the Mount of Sinai.
The names of all the archangels finish with the letters, "el", which mean, "in God."
