Archangel Michael, His Purpose and How To Call Upon Him

There are many different archangels in the heavenly realm and all of them serve a different purpose. I’m going to focus on and look at archangel Michael and explain what his purpose is when helping us on earth and what people like you an I would call upon him for.

Archangel Michael who’s name means, “Who is like god” is also known as the protector of humanity. He is the Commander-in-chiefs of the archangels and leads the heavenly forces against evil. Archangel Michael will carry a blue sword of flames with him, which can be associated with the throat chakra but his main colour is yellow, the fire of the solar plexus. He will have animals with him and they are cats from lion and tiger families, domestic tabby cats, stouts and all black birds.

Representing faith, protection and truth, people call upon him to boost their will power, to get strength and empowerment but most importantly for protection. If calling upon archangel Michael for his help the best day to do so is on a Sunday. One way to contact him for help is by writing to him and for the best results use white paper and a gold pen, keep the letter from Sunday to Sunday and then burn it.


There are different kinds of ways to call upon your archangels and you need to do which one feels more comfortable to you. I tend to try to relax or meditate with some incense sticks or oils burning and the best ones to use for Archangel Michael are Frankincense and Myrrh.

Myrrh is widely known for being one of the holiest of essential oils and is used for purification, dispelling of harmful and negative energy, protection and letting go of any sorrow or grief. The Frankincense is used for purification, protection, courage, consecration and meditation, it also helps to overcome fears you may have and any negative feelings.

Archangel Michael is commonly called upon for these kind of reasons and as I said earlier, especially for protection. Remember, angels will only help you if you ask and for more help in talking to your angels and understanding them see the links below.

The Archangel Michael has been protecting the outside of my house from intruders for a couple of years. He stood behind me (I could feel his presence) when I had to confront several men who were threatening me in my driveway a year or so ago. Those men moved away and left me alone the next day! His army surrounds my house. Their presence is almost palpable.

I've had a lot of threats, stalkers arbitrary difficulties, mostly with strange men, the past couple of years. So far, no one has come into my house to harm me. One of my neighbors was not so lucky.

The spirit of St. Michael is a very powerful, fierce one. He has no high regard for criminals.

This is a great hub! Voted up!

I was looking for a portrait of Archangel Michael. I also burn frankincense and myrrh before going into meditation.

You touched my heart...I am on hubpages today because I was feeling down. It's been years since I called on this angel.. I think I'm going to talk to him right away.

I know about Archangel Michael's novena and chaplet. Do you know about that too?
