Welcome Archangel Michael, the Governor of Autumn. His name means "Who Is Like God".
Today marks the Autumn Solstice, the beginning of a new season for growth. A powerful time for shedding the old to prepare for the new, while also maintaining balance in the physical and the spiritual. During this season, dreams will often reveal much about our values.
Autumn also brings a testing of the lower consciousness, regarding our judgment. When we pass these tests, there will be spiritual rewards. During this time, we have access to spiritual guidance, especially through contact with nature, meditation, and prayer.
Archangel Michael offers his dynamic assistance to provide protection and balance. With his mighty flaming sword, he will cut away, and purify what no longer serves you.
Archangel Michael is accessible to every seeker on the spiritual path. The Archangel in charge of change, he brings the gift of patience. Often known as the Dragon Slayer as well as the Prince of Light, he helps us to face our own personal dragons that we have pretended do not exist. The dragon is associated with our lower-self, our fears. Archangel Michael will aid in transmuting shadows into the light of new beginnings.
With his help, this can be a beneficial season in which to take courage, and make new decisions that will lead to more freedom of expression for the highest good of all.
So remember to call for Archangel Michael's help in areas where you need more courage to face your fears. He assists in the great overcoming.
Happy Autumn Solstice!
