The type of magick you can work with Archangel Michael, associations for your altar plus an incantation.
Did you know that the word “angel” stems from the Greek version of the Hebrew mal’akh which means “shadow side of deity”?
It seems kind of counterintuitive since one always associates angels with dazzling light. So what then is meant by this?
Well it just means that the work of angels takes place in a way that is unseen hence in the shadows beyond ordinary sight where you cannot see the various changes taking place. Just like a Witch’s Book of Shadows is all about working with forces and realms that are unseen.
Because of their higher energy angels help us draw more harmony, love, compassion and peace into our lives when you remember to call upon them and specifically ask them to assist you in your daily life they can do so in many ways.
Michael’s name means “he who is like God”.
Archangel Michael is also known as Mika’il, Sabbathiel and Beshter which means “one who provides sustenance for humanity.”
Archangel Michael assists with protection, faith, personal strength and power. His main objective is to eliminate fear from our realm. Call upon him to cleanse people and places of negativity.
What many don’t know is that he watches over sacred healing waters (wells, streams, fountains) and guards shrines created in honour of the Goddess/divine feminine.
