You will find many more thourough ressources about St Michael. The scope of this post is to provide a simple ritual to do when you suspect being under a curse. This should be accompanied by others practices but represent a very solid ground to your protective work.
St Michael is probably the most well known of all the Archangels. He is your best ally in the case you are under spiritual attack.
Who is St Michael ?
His name means “who is like God” and is the highest Archangels (Metatron put aside). He is said to stand at the right of God. He belongs to the Order of the Malachim, is the protector of the Catholic church and the patron of Israël. He is aknowledge by all the three main religions.
Planetary wise I relate him to the Sun, because of his qualities of defeating the darkness. Therefore I link him to the sephira of Tipheret. I won’t enter into a kabbalistic debate about whether he belongs to Tipheret (Sun) or Hod (Mercury), this is not the scope of this article, I am just sharing how I do consider him. Feel free to do otherwise. Sunday is therefore his day.
He is known to have defeated the Dragon but also carries the quality of a Psychopomp, welcome the recent departed souls to guide them to God.
He is the Chief Commander of Yawhe’s armies, the one who lead his spirits to fight againt evil. In this regard he is the spirit to petition in the case you are victim of any kind of Sorcery.
He will gladly help you to be protected against evil if you have a fair cause. Don’t expect him to defend you if you started the flame war and acted sinfully. He defends the one who has been unfairly attacked and is a wonderful spirit to have by your side, chasing away negative energies and spirits.
He is also the patron of the policemen, firemen, soldiers who have to fight in their day to day life.
A simple ritual with St Michael
Set up an altar for him. Could be a book shelf, a small table, a night stand, the top of a drawer. In any case, no other items should be on it, this place will solely be attributed to St Michael. His own private space.
Put a clean white cloth on it. At the top center put a coloured picture of St Michael. You can also put a statue if you decide to buy one.
Sunday is his day but in the case of spiritual attack you can of course petition him any day. In any case and because of his solar attribute, it is best to call him on daylight when you initiate the contact with him.
You will also need a glass filled with purified/spring water (no tap water), a yellow/gold 7 days candle and 6 yellow/gold long tape candles. If you can’t find any yellow/gold ones, white will work too. Some like to use a red candle with him but I don’t, I keep this colour for the spirits of the Sphere of Mars.
Go to your altar and remain silent a few moment while staring at St Michael’s picture. Then repeat his name in loop, it will allow you to attune to his energies. You can also add that you are calling him because you are in urgent need of his help.
Then recite his prayer :
“St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen..”
This is the moment for you to speak to him. Explain why you’ve been calling him. That you are under spiritual attack and suffer in your life. Ask him to use his sword to cut any evil link keeping you in a state of darkness and to chase away any negative being sent at you. Pleade your case, be precise, if you know the name of the evildoer mention him and ask him to do all he can to make sure this person won’t bother you anymore and that all the attacks coming because of this person are destroyed.
Then tell him that you are grateful and wish to express your gratitude by offering him some light and water.
Light the 7 day candle and put it on the altar. Likewise, put the glass of water on it, all right in front of him.
Thank him again and go back to your life.
Repeat the process for the 6 next days. Throw away the water and fill the glass each day with some new fresh one. Give him the water with the long tape candle.
At the end of the 7 days, you can keep on offering water and a long tape yellow/gold candle every Sunday. This will keep your relationship with St Michael ongoing.
