Invoking Archangel Michael
Like all of the angels, Archangel Michael will rarely interfere in your life without permission, this is because angels honor our free will as human beings. And yet, he is ever-ready to lend his protective shield and illuminating spirit, when invited.
By reaching out, expressing your needs, and inviting Archangel Michael into your spiritual space, you create a bridge for divine intervention and celestial guidance, ultimately forging a stronger connection with the angelic realm.
Regardless of life's challenges, remember that you can always summon the supportive strength of the Angels to provide direction and solace.
While numerous Angels may extend their assistance and communicate with us, understanding if it's specifically Archangel Michael reaching out to you requires a certain level of awareness. Let's delve into some of the top signs to look for so you can recognize Archangel Michael when he is making a direct connection with you.
But first, know that if you want to experience the protection, love, guidance and presence of Michael, it’s important to ask! Asking is, of course, the key to his stepping forward and making himself known to you.
There is no one right or wrong way to invoke Archangel Michael or any of the other Archangels.
The key is to have a clear and sincere intention as you speak an Archangel Michael Prayer, or simply speak from your heart to invoke the support and guidance of Archangel Michael.
You can simply think or say something like:
“Archangel Michael please connect with me now. Please help me, protect and guide me now.”
The exact words you use are less important that your sincere intention, know that when you ask from a place of integrity, and with an open heart… Michael will step forward to assist you… Though perhaps in a way that is different than you might expect.
When you ask for Michael's guidance and assistance, then awareness is key! Pay attention to subtle shifts in energy, a feeling of divine light, as well as signs and signals alerting you to the very real presence of this powerful archangel.
Archangel Michael's Signs
When Archangel Michael is with you, he will send you signs to let you know that he is present. These signs can come in many forms, and it's essential to be open and aware of them. Here are some of the signs that Archangel Michael may send your way:
5 Archangel Michael Signs
1. Feeling A Warm Tingling Sensation
The first sign of Michael I want to share, comes through your simply feeling his light and presence.
Michael is a powerful Archangel and so when Archangel Michael steps forward, to me, his energy feels so bright, warm and uplifting. I feel it like a warm tingling sensation throughout my being. Feeling this warm tingling sensation in your body is a sign he’s with you.
You may feel your energy shift, lighten up, or it may simply feel like your very cells are glowing and tingling with light as you become aware of his presence with your subtle senses.
You also might feel like you literally have an orb of light around you shielding you when Michael steps forward to guide or protect you energetically.
Archangel Michael is an Archangel of the Sun, and he carries electric blue fire. This is part of why feeling that warm tingling sensation is a sign he’s with you.
If you don’t resonate with my description of what Archangel Michael feels like, and you feel something else, pay attention to that as it may be different for you. Really, describing what angelic energy feels like is beyond words… So just pay attention to how you feel, and if you notice a subtle shift after you call AA Michael in because , that tingling, glowing, or just feeling so incredibly light and uplifted is a clear sign that Archangel Michael is indeed with you, has answered your request and is assisting you in your life.
2. Seeing Flashes or Flickering Light
The second sign Michael is with you, is that you start to see or notice flickers, sparkles, of flashes of bright light.
As I mentioned above, Archangel Michael is deeply connected to the sun and carries the energy of electrical fire, so anytime you are connecting with Archangel Michael, the likelihood of seeing flashes of light, sparkles of light on water, blue light, blueish purple orbs or geometries light are clear signs of Archangel Michael.
You might see this sort of light in your meditations, appearing in your minds eye, or you might see physical lights flashing, flickering, or noticing a light glow or halo appearing in your field of vision.
Also, Archangel Michael has way of connecting to humanity through a sort of light grid, this is how he's able to connect with all who call upon him at once. So you might even sort of see flickers or glimpses of this grid of light when you’re connecting with Archangel Michael.
3. Seeing Pictures of Archangel Michael, Swords, or Warriors
The third sign Michael is assisting you, is that you you start to see images of him popping up in your life.
These images could show up on your social media timeline, on a commercial, or you may simply see them when you're out and about. In addition to images that are clearly representative of Archangel Michael, you might also see images of saint michael, swords, angel wings, warriors, or shields, and really, seeing any sort of protective or warrior imagery can be a sign from Archangel Michael. This is especially true when you see these images and the timing of your seeing them is synchronistic.
Also, when you keep seeing images of Michael at different times and places, this is a really clear sign he's with you and wanting to get your attention.
This sign doesn't only come through pictures though and can also manifest through your noticing sculptures, or artwork depicting Archangel Michael or other Archangel Michael symbols like shields, swords, or warriors.
When you begin to see Archangel Michael artwork and symbolism, after you’ve asked for assistance, that is a huge sign of his presence.
4. You Hear and Receive Angelic Guidance
The fourth sign that Archangel Michael is really with you and assisting you, guiding you, protecting you, and supporting you, is that you begin to hear guidance.
This guidance may come through your inner sense of hearing, through your clair-audience, or inner voice.
You may simply receive the guidance from Michael in the form of thoughts that are empowering, that are supportive, that remind you that you're safe, that remind you that you’re surrounded by light, and remind you are okay. Receiving this sort of guidance, even if its very subtle is a big sign of the presence of Archangel Michael.
Especially when you receive guidance after you've asked for insight, protection or support from Michael.
Hearing guidance as a sign of Archangel Michael can also come in another way. You may overhear little bits or snippets of other people's conversations that bring you a sense of confirmation or validation.
For example, say you ask for protection or support from Archangel Michael when you're walking down the street, and shortly thereafter you pass a little café, and as you walk by, by you overhear the conversation of two people sitting outside… And someone says: “Yeah Michael, that's great.”
This is a sign!
When you’re working with Archangel Michael, you may actually start to see, hear and notice the name Michael more. This is a beautiful sign and validation.
Also, you may overhear a little bit of a conversation that just seems to stand out to you as offering you guidance or confirmation.
For example you may hear someone say “You really should eat healthier… start with more vegetables..” and although they were not speaking to you… You heard it for a reason.
When you hear guidance in this way, and you feel that it's meant for you, trust that and take it as a sign from Archangel Michael.
5. You Feel Watched Over and Protected
Last but not least, the fifth sign of Archangel Michael’s presence in your life is that you feel protected.
You may feel like someone is watching over you. You feel like you're being guided, supported, uplifted and most importantly protected.
When Archangel Michael connects directly with you, he places light in your energy field that acts as a sort of shield. This naturally feels uplifting, protecting, supportive, and so empowering.
You so of course have to be sensitive to be able to feel the light and shield of Archangel Michael, so if you're not feeling it, don't judge yourself or say that you're not connected with Archangel Michael.
Rather, just begin to pay more attention to your subtle feelings and sensations when you ask Archangel Michael to step forward.
Do you feel like you're being watched over?
Do you feel supported?
If you're walking home at night, and you turn down the wrong street and it's dark, and you feel a little self-doubt or even fear creek up and then you think or say “Archangel Michael protect me now”…
And then you suddenly feel a little better, trust that he has indeed stepped forward to assist you on your path.
Feeling supported and protected is a sign that Archangel Michael is with you.
