Archangel Michael’s Key Oils

Spikenard (Nardostachys jatamansi)

Michael Meditation

What you will need:

  • A white candle
  • Essential oil or blend - use on one of the recommended oils, or blend of oils

Make sure you are in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.

Light your white candle and inhale the scent of your essential oil.

Gaze into the candle flame as you begin to breathe in fully and deeply and exhale any tension. Continue inhaling the scent of your oil and releasing any tension for 1-5 minutes.

Now, invite Archangel Michael to assist you with your meditation. Feel the mighty strength of Michael elevate and align you with thoughts of courage. Michael will help keep your thoughts and feelings aligned with truth and trust for the life process.

Ask Michael, “Help me to feel the strength and courage that is your very essence.”

Ask Michael, "Over light, protect and guide me to attract and create only that which is beneficial for all concerned.”

Ask Michael, “Illumine my mind and enhance my perceptions, so that I only see the truth that is at work in my life.”

Ask Michael, “Assist me to cultivate thoughts of truth and courage in my daily life for the creation of a more Just world now and in the future.”

Now, be still and silent as you absorb Michael’s angelic healing light of courage and strength.

Allow Michael to do the work necessary to align and bring balance to your life. Let any worry, concern, or cords of attachment to quietly melt away. Empty yourself completely of any feeling of discomfort you may have been feeling. Just remain peaceful and calm as you absorb Michael’s healing light. 

Take as long as needed to complete this meditation. Repeat as needed whenever you feel fearful, or distrustful of people or circumstances you may be faced with in your life, or anytime you need to bolster your courage.
