Archangel Prayers to Guide Your Day

In my morning spiritual practice, I always ask for assistance from my Guardian Angel and from the Archangels. And you can too.

Archangels are radiant, supernatural beings in the higher realm of angels. They are messengers from God, delivering important signs, symbols and guidance when we are open to receiving them.

Some of the most celebrated of the Archangels are Michael, Gabriel, Uriel and Raphael.

In a recent post, we talked about connecting with our Guardian Angels and of their constant presence in our daily lives. Their unconditional love and guidance supports us in countless ways.

Archangels can communicate with us on the earthly plane as well, to assist us in meeting the challenges of our lives, and also in deepening our spirituality and helping us embody greater love, compassion and peace.

Yes, they can help us release our fears to the power of love. We could all use a little of that, right?

A few years ago, after a series of loving communications with Archangel Michael, I felt a strong pull to learn more about the Archangels and to create prayers that would invoke their assistance. With the help of my fellow angel lover and earthly mom, we gathered a mountain of Archangel information. The prayers below are the result of our Archangel Project and can be used at any time of need.

The Archangels are extensions of Divine Love, sent by God to assist us. We are not praying to them as much as through them. Remember to request assistance in alignment with the highest good of all and to be open to creative solutions. Our prayers are always answered – but not always in the ways we expect.

And remember, you are never alone in your challenges. The angels are near.

Archangel Prayers:

Dear Archangel Michael (name means: Who Is as God),

Please defend, protect and guide me today. Assist me in every decision, great and small. Cleanse me of darkness and negativity, and keep me safe from harm. Lift the walls of doubt, fear and worries, filling me with strength, peace and Divine wisdom. Remind me of my worthiness as a spiritual being and of my soul’s constant connection with the Divine.

Archangel Michael ~ THE GRAND SECOND WAVE: THE ARRIVAL

WE ARE THE GREAT MESSENGERS THAT FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH CAME DOWN TO HERALD GOOD NEWS TO ALL HUMANITY.

AS THESE MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF LIGHT PENETRATED THE MATRIX AND THE HUMAN BODY IT WAS QUITE OVERWHELMING, AS REPORTS CAME IN FROM ALL OVER THE GLOBE OF HEARTS RACING AND ACCOUNTS OF MANY OTHER ASCENSION SYMPTOMS.

WHEN LIGHT FIRST COMES, IN THESE LARGE DOSES, IT STALLS THE MAGNETIC AURA FOR A SHORT TIME UNTIL IT CAN BE INTEGRATED.

BEINGS ARE EXPERIENCING ALL OF THIS IN DIFFERENT WAYS, DEPENDING ON THE INTERNAL VIBRATION OF THE BODY.

ALL FIRST WAVE BEINGS EXPERIENCED THE FIRST STABILIZING OF THE 6D STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS AT THE 43 HERTZ LEVEL.

AS WE SAID, THE PHYSICAL MANIFESTATION FOR THE COLLECTIVE FOR THE EARTH OF WHAT WE CALL HEAVEN WILL NOT BE VISIBLE TO THE EYES UNTIL THE LAST BEING IS INSIDE THE 5D BOUNDARY. THIS WILL OCCUR IN THE SUMMER OF 2016 AT THE SOLSTICE.

MANY ASK US HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT PRIMITIVE HUMANITY CAN WAKE UP WHEN THEY ARE STILL SO UNCONSCIOUS?  WE SAY, AS THE MASSIVE MAGNETIC PASSOVER CONTINUES, THE ILLUSIONARY 3D MATRIX IS BEING COMPLETELY OVERTAKEN BY THE NEW EARTH MATRIX. THE GRIDS OF THE OLD MATRIX WILL BE SHUT COMPLETELY OFF THIS SUMMER AS ALL THINGS ON EARTH COME TO A STANDSTILL.

AFTER THIS, HUMANS WILL MAKE THEIR EVOLUTIONARY LEAP IN A SHORT TIME.  IT WILL BE SUCH A DRASTIC DEPARTURE FROM WHAT THEY HAVE KNOWN THAT MANY WILL LITERALLY GO INTO SHOCK FOR A TIME, BUT WE TELL YOU THAT ALL OF THEM WILL MAKE IT AND WILL BE CHANGED IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE.  THE ONES WHO ARE ASLEEP, SHALL BE RAISED UP TO MEET WHAT IS CALLED “GOD” FOR THE FIRST TIME. THEN ALL EYES WILL SEE GOD, AS GOD TRULY IS.

WE BRING GOOD TIDINGS THIS EARTH DAY TO ALL HUMANITY AS WE COME TOGETHER WITH OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS… NOW OVER 4 AND 1/2 BILLION STRONG ALL AROUND THE GLOBE

THIS PLANET IS BEING ENGULFED BY THE LEGIONS OF LIGHT THAT ARE HERE NOW AND AS WE MOVE THROUGH THE END OF PROJECT FREEDOM EARTH AND AS ONE MORE LEVEL OF SUPER GAMMA LIGHT COMES INTO THE EARTH IN SUMMER, ALL THINGS SHALL BE FULFILLED AND THEN WE SHALL RETURN THE EARTH BACK INTO THE PARADISE IT WAS ALWAYS MEANT TO BE.

YOU COME FROM A MUCH HIGHER VERSION OF HERE AND THIS IS WHERE YOU ARE RETURNING.

WE SAY:  BE IMPECCABLE IN ALL WAYS, CLEAR OUT ALL THE OLD ENERGIES THAT NO LONGER SERVE THE SOUL AND BE THE HIGHER BEING THAT YOU ARE.

OUR MISSION ON EARTH IS SIMPLY TO TELL YOU WHO YOU TRULY ARE.  YOU HAVE LIVED AMONG THE HUMANS SO LONG YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE ONE OF THEM FOR A MOMENT, BUT INSIDE, YOU KNOW THAT YOU HAVE NEVER FIT IN WITH THEM AND THEY HAVE REJECTED AND ABUSED YOU UNTIL NOW.  HUMANS DO NOT YET REALIZED THAT NO ONE IS IN CHARGE OF THEM AND THEY HAVE NO AUTHORITY OVER THEM BUT THEMSELVES.

NOW WE SAY, DO YOUR INNER WORK BUILDING YOUR CORE, STAY FOCUSED ON YOURSELF SOLELY, AND MANAGE YOUR OWN ENERGY PROPERLY AND RESPONSIBLY.

STAY STRONG AS WE CONTINUE ON TO THE END OF THIS GRAND GALACTIC MISSION IN THE NAME OF ALL HUMANITY.

THE GAMMA WAVE THAT PEAKED YESTERDAY WAS ANCHORED FULLY TO THE GROUND BY THE GREAT KEY-HOLDERS NOW NUMBERING 144,000.

THE WAVE WILL STAY LEVEL FOR A TIME, SO SECOND WAVE BEINGS CAN INTEGRATE IT ALL AND STABILIZE AT THE 5D LEVEL

TOGETHER WE WILL PREPARE TO LIFT UP THE REST OF HUMANITY IN A FEW MONTHS AS THE GREATEST PLAN IN ALL UNIVERSES COMES TO ITS CLOSE.

WE SALUTE OUR 2ND WAVE BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF LIGHT WHO ARE OUR EQUALS AND WHO NOW RESONATE WITH US.

BEHOLD I LOOKED INTO HEAVEN AND I SAW A GREAT MULTITUDE OF BEINGS THAT NUMBERED AS MANY AS THE SANDS OF THE SEA AND IT WAS GIVEN THAT THESE WERE THE GREAT ONES THAT OVERCAME THE WHOLE WORLD.

THIS IS YOU WE SPEAK ABOUT.  BE PROUD OF ALL THAT YOU HAVE OVERCOME TO GET TO THIS POINT.  YOUR LIFE IS JUST NOW ABOUT TO BEGIN AND WE TELL YOU THAT FROM WHERE WE SEE, THE SKIES ARE CLEAR AND SMOOTH SAILING IS AHEAD.

ARCHANGEL MICHAEL

Archangel Oracle ~ Eight of Cups

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eight of Cups, from the Shadowscapes Tarot card deck, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law artwork by Barbara Moore

Eight of Cups: “Seeker of the Seas, dive down, dive deep. Plumb the sapphire waters so dark that they pulse with the nacreous gleam of black pearls. Slice through the waters, O seeker of truth; slide with lithe body through the currents and undertows; turn away from the sunlight of the world up above that blinds with its too sharp brilliance. Like the delicate luminescence of the deep sea life, there are some things that can only be seen when the eyes are enlarged int he dim, nether-lit otherworld. Dive down, seeker of the seas!

Eight of Cups beckons you to follow and delve within for personal discovery and answers. Turn away and disengage from the material world for the spiritual. Leave the sharp lines and edges, the harsh sounds that pierce the dry air with a clarion call. The sea’s embrace is much softer and more sensual, and connected by the ripples and the flows. The water softens the assaults on the senses, so that everything becomes fluid and smooth.

The Eight of Cups shimmers with the distant touch of the sun’s rays from above. They tumble down into the depths. The falling glimmer and shine urges you to move on to catch hold of one of them. Now is the time to let go and allow all the weariness to ripple away from you and fade into the waves.”

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Notice how the cups in this depiction are not needing to be held upright, full. Instead they appear like torches, illuminating the darkness. Notice that the sea here feels like another realm of reality, another dimension; the shapes of the moon, Jupiter and Saturn looming in the distance. Notice her tail is one of a mermaid, but also reminiscent of a butterfly wing, a sign of imminent transformation. And what does water stand for? The depth of our emotions of course.

If we can surrender to the quest; dive down deep; find some solitude and give ourselves a chance to contemplate, learn and assimilate the energies? Then we will illuminate our new path, with grace and ease. The shadows will be revealed and the light shined upon them. Resolution can be achieved.

We are being told that we must dive into the murky depths, but we are never alone. See the cups as your spirit guides, lighting your way. It is when we refuse to dive deep that we hold ourselves back. We deny the lessons, we get stuck in the same patterns. Now we have a chance to see why, to see what has been going on. To take responsibility and to set the intention for something new.

The butterfly wing lets us know that when this part of our journey is undertaken and the work is done, we can finally rise above it, transformed. Saturn is considered the planet of karma, of boundaries, awareness and perception. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and knowledge, of spiritual purpose and blessings. The moon represents the Divine Feminine aspect, illumination, enlightenment, magic and mystery.

Be alone today for at least a while. Meditate. Contemplate. Build and altar. Listen to your body. Release your mind. Invite your Higher Self in to guide you. Surrender to the silence. Do not fight the change. Trust.

Namaste

What Is St. Michael the Archangel Doing on the PM’s New Office? – Hungary Today

The Castle District is one of Hungary’s most historic centers; the destination is a tourist magnet, and the area is a World Heritage Site. We tend to forget about the castle’s past and often believe it has always looked as it does now. However, World War II caused serious damage to the building and, over the past century, the Castle Quarter has undergone some tremendous changes.

There is a part of the castle which has been untouched and unused for ages. Now, it is finally waking up from its Sleeping Beauty-esque nap. This section is comprised of the southern part of the Castle, between the royal palace and the Matthias Church–which was the real center of Hungarian statehood until it was badly damaged between 1944 and 45.

The history behind the building which houses the PM’s new office

In the Middle Ages, the building wherein the PM’s new office is located had been a Franciscan temple devoted to St. John, built between 1269-70. The building was converted into a mosque during the Turkish occupation and then destroyed in the 1686 siege of Buda. The plot was given to the Carmelites in 1693. After laying the foundation in 1725, the temple was built by 1736 and consecrated in 1763. Joseph II dissolved the order in 1784, and on his trip to Buda in 1786, he personally arranged to have the temple converted into a theater, used to entertain the government officers of Buda.

The PM’s office was created from the rooms of two former monks. Not only the interior is reminiscent of the building’s religious past, as a Sculpture of Saint Michael the Archangel is also present on the corner of the renovated office. This came as a surprise to the public as it wasn’t included in the original plans.

Archangel on the wall

The bronze statue rests several meters above the ground, therefore it is clearly visible from afar. St. Michael’s figure is life-size, brandishing a cross in its right hand and a shield inscribed with Hungarian symbols in its left. The sculptor did not adhere to the usual depictions of Saint Michael. Traditionally, the Archangel holds a sword, but in this case, his weapon is a long Christian cross.

Proudly lifting a shield, St. Michael is depicted as a protector of the Hungarian nation. The shield symbolically represents faith in the country. A dragon (representing evil or the defeat of evil) rests at the feet of St. Michael. The dragon clings to the balcony’s edge, clearly in a weak position. Although the dragon appears to be losing, evil is alive and well. Therefore, the statue signifies there is still a need for protection.

The sculptor, György Markolt, was born in Kiskunfélegyháza in 1951. He attended the College of Fine Arts from 1969 to 1975. He has been living in Csobánka with his wife Katalin M. Gémes for decades, and it was there that they raised their eight sons. With his extensive experience creating sacred sculptures depicting Hungarian History, it’s clear why Markolt was chosen to design the statue of St. Michael.

The reason behind St. Michael being chosen as a patron saint by the Prime Minister’s Office is still unclear. St. Michael is one of the seven archangels, the leader of the heavenly armies, the victorious warrior who overcomes evil, protector of the good and the most powerful angel. The angel measures good and evil acts and differentiates them from one another. He is also the defender of the Christian soldiers. During the Crusades, soldiers often fought under the names of the armies of St. Michael.

Perhaps the piece is meant to represent Hungary’s struggle in defending Christian Europe for centuries. Index.hu reported that Viktor Orbán drew a parallel between his role and St Michael’s in defending Christianity.

A blessed office

A few days ago on the day of Epiphany, the office was blessed by Carmelite monks. Traditionally, the year is written in chalk over the door as part of the ceremony, accompanied by the initials of the three wise men of the East. In this case: 20 + G + M + B + 19.

Esther vs. Michael the Archangel

Today in Saintly Sixteen action, Esther squares off against Michael the Archangel. To make it this far, Esther made it past Lazarus while Michael got by Anna the Prophet. Will St. Michael or one of the “all angels” prevail?

Yesterday, Anna Alexander made it past Edith Cavell 65% to 35% to advance to the Elate Eight. She’ll face the winner of Eglantyne Jebb vs. Catherine Winkworth. By the way, our Bracket Czar Adam Thomas delved into bracket history and has ruled that Monday’s battle that saw Maria Skobtsova trounce Quiteria 91% to 9% was the most lopsided victory ever in the modern era of Lent Madness. The previous record was from 2014 when Basil defeated Antony of Egypt 87% to 13%.

Oh, and did you miss the Tuesday edition of Monday Madness? If you can stand the planets being out of alignment, watch it here.

Esther

Esther, or Hadassah in Hebrew, was the secretly-Jewish queen of Persia who saved her people from genocide through her prayer, bravery, and wits, as recorded in the Bible.

She is celebrated in the church on July 1 in the Eastern Orthodox church. Note that the Orthodox church does not have the same requirements for sainthood as you might be used to: she joins luminaries like Abraham, Joseph, and Jacob on the calendar. Also, recall that in the years before formalized bureaucratic processes, saints were not made by the Church; they arose, grassroots-style, from the people.

In Esther’s case, she became very popular with a particular group of people in Spain, born from one of the worst sins the Church committed. During the Spanish Inquisition of the late 15th century, the Jews of Spain were given a life-or-death choice: convert to Christianity, flee the country, or die. For the Jews who chose conversion, such a capitulation did not reward them with an easy life thereafter: they were ridiculed and shunned by their former community, and denigrated and distrusted by their new co-religionists. The word for this group of converted Jews in Spanish among the Spanish Catholics was ‘marranos’ or ‘pigs’ which should give you an idea of how they were received. In the face of such hatred from all corners, this beleaguered group found a way to hold on to their identity in secret.

Because they were not able to celebrate Purim or Passover, or any of the traditional festivals, the Jewish converts became much enamored with a Saint Esther, and threw themselves into celebrating her festival in the spring—around the same time as Purim and Passover would normally fall. St. Esther’s festival could pass as acceptable, because after all—was she not in the Christian Bible? Was she not a biblical heroine? Surely all good Catholics had heard of Saint Esther! Icons of her began to appear all around.

Many of the converted Jews fled to the New World, and seemed to have taken their love of Esther with them to Mexico and the American Southwest (although there is conflicting information on this). The retablo style of iconography soon grew to include Esther, and celebrations of her feast day sprang up in the small towns of New Mexico.

Esther’s story, of a woman who secretly clung to her faith in spite of all oppression, spoke to those who were experiencing the same sort of trials at the hands of the Church. Her sainthood then is both a rebuke of the Church’s sins, and a hope that people of faith may learn from her witness in the future.

Michael the Archangel

The Archangel Michael is not known for giving interviews, so quotes from the Archangel are rare (read: nonexistent).

Quirks, however, are plentiful, particularly those associated with the many monasteries, churches, and holy sites named in honor of St. Michael.

One particularly fascinating quirk is the legendary Sword of Michael, a straight line of monasteries and churches forming a spiritual path devoted to St. Michael in the form of Michael’s sword. The hilt of the Sword begins at Skellig Michael (meaning Michael’s Rock), a 6th century monastery off the coast of Ireland (or somewhere in a galaxy far, far away, if you’re a fan of the latest Star Wars movies).

The Sword of St. Michael continues through Saint Michael’s Mount (Cornwall, England); Mont Saint-Michel (Normandy, France); Sacra di San Michele (Turin, Italy); Sanctuary of Monte Sant’Angelo (Mount Gargano, Italy); before coming to an end at Stella Maris Carmelite Monastery (Haifa, Israel), representing the tip of the sword. Legend holds this line symbolizes the sword that Michael used to send Lucifer and the other rebellious angels into hell.

Michael’s legendary fortress, Mont Saint-Michel off the Normandy coast, may be the most famous edifice built to honor the Archangel. Mont Saint-Michel began its life in the 8th century, when legend holds that Michael appeared to Aubert, bishop of Avranches, and instructed the bishop to build a church in the Archangel’s honor. The bishop ignored the Archangel’s request until Michael burned a hole in the bishop’s skull with Michael’s angelic finger.

Needless to say, the bishop began the foundations of Mont Saint-Michel immediately.

Its English counterpart, located off the coast of Cornwall in a tidal area with similar characteristics, is Saint Michael’s Mount, also built in the 8th century and serving as a monastery until the early 11th century, when it passed into private ownership.

No legends tell of Michael burning holes to encourage the building of this edifice, although the island’s west side was long-known as a place local fisherman would row past before going out to sea, as Michael would appear and warn of any imminent danger that awaited them.

While not directly associated with Michael, the island is also known as the dwelling place of a giant who would steal cattle and children until a young man named Jack ventured to the Mount, dug a deep pit while the giant was sleeping and blew a loud horn to startle the giant awake. Raging to find the source of his disturbed sleep, the giant stormed out of his castle and fell into the deep pit, and the legend of Jack the Giant Killer was born.

Mystery Of The Second Gabriel Stone And The Man Resurrected By Archangel Gabriel

A. Sutherland – AncientPages.com – In the three monotheistic faiths, Gabriel’s role – as a messenger to humans from God – was crucial.

The angel Gabriel (“man of God” or “strength of God”) is remembered as the angel who told Mary she would give birth to the Son of God, as the angel of the annunciation. Gabiel is the one who revealed that the Savior was to be called “Jesus” (Luke 1:31) but his  first biblical appearance is recorded in Daniel 8:16, when he is told to explain a vision to the prophet.

Detail of Gabriel from Pinturicchio’s The Annunciation (1501). Image via wikipedia

No doubt, all artifacts that can be related to the angel Gabriel, who was entrusted to deliver many important messages on God’s behalf, have great significance to researchers  dealing with biblical archaeology.

Apocalyptic text is inscribed with ink in Hebrew over a large stone. It’s the Gabriel Revelation – first published in 2007.

It was discovered around the year 2000 in Jordan near the eastern shore of the Dead Sea.
The so-called Gabriel Stone is authentic and very important for understanding the true roots of Jesus Christ’s messianic conception.

However, this ancient tablet with messianic overtones, which according to general beliefs, originates from before the time of Christ, has been debated in archaeological and biblical circles.

While one scholar claims the find could “shake our basic view of Christianity,” a Catholic Professor of Scripture suggests the tablet is actually evidence for the historical probability of Christian belief.

Gabriel Stone remains a priceless and unique 2,000-year-old stone artifact, which traces depictions of the Archangel Gabriel in Jewish, Christian and Islamic sacred writings scriptures. The stone is cut on one side, along which two columns – 16 cm wide and about 75 cm in height – are covered with text.

The columns are separated by a gap approximately 3.5 cm wide.

The inscription is composed of 47 horizontal lines and four vertical lines fixing the columns’ borders.

A  three-foot-tall tablet contains the text composed of 87 lines of which 44 are in the right-hand column and 43 in the left-hand column. The last two lines of the left-hand column are much shorter than the rest, and their ending is marked by diagonal lines.

It’s uncertain if the text begins with the first line of the right-hand column. Was it preceded by text that is now lost? Or was it so that the whole composition was comprised of an additional stone or perhaps even more stones?

However, no traces of binding substance (like for example cement) was discovered by archaeologists on it.

The Hebrew text is written in the first person that identifies himself three times in the first-person: “I am Gabriel”. He converses with a human figure – a visionary or prophet – to whom he, Gabriel, is apparently communicating a vision.

The text – very prophetic and apocalyptic – also expresses anxiety over the fate of Jerusalem and reflects the crucial role of angels as intermediaries. It’s an attack on Jerusalem and the hope that God will see to the city’s deliverance for the sake of his servant David, perhaps referring to the Messiah of Davidic descent.

The Gabriel Revelation stone is believed to be the first example of the angel’s name appearing in ink on stone, although earlier mentions of his name are found in the Dead Sea scrolls.

At the same time, museum director James Snyder said that “the Gabriel Revelation stone is, in a way, like a Dead Sea scroll written on stone and it’s unique in that respect.”

Controversy over the exact nature of the stone’s text remains. The second or even several “Gabriel Stone” fragments may still be out there, waiting to be discovered.

“I Am Gabriel”: A Scroll in Stone from the Time of Herod. Credits: Israel Museum

Based on analysis of linguistic patterns and the shape of the script of The Gabriel Revelation stone, the inscription is a pre-Christian text, written at the end of the first century BC (around the time of Jesus Christ’s birth).

The first part of the sacred inscription has the apocalyptic character; it’s about the ultimate destiny of mankind and the world; vanquishing of the Antichrist and its forces of evil. The second part focuses on death and resurrection. The text refers to three leaders – shepherds – sent by God to His people, who were killed in battle.

Interesting are the words in the last part of the inscription. These words are the words of the Archangel Gabriel who orders his mysterious and unknown interlocutor – to return to life after three days and says: “By three days, live.”

The Gabriel’s order written in the 80th line of the inscription, is followed by the further line that states that a leader – a “prince of the princes” – was put to death, and his corpse turned to dung among the rocky crevices.

Researchers have long debated: who is the man resurrected by Archangel Gabriel?

Archangel Zadkiel & Holy Amethyst – Violet Flame Angels

Archangel Zadkiel and his twin flame, Holy Amethyst, are the archangels of the seventh ray of violet flame transmutation and spiritual alchemy. Together with their violet-flame angels, they serve mankind from the Temple of Purification.

The Temple of Purification, once physical, is now in the etheric realm over the island of Cuba. Priests of the sacred fire on Atlantis took their training under the order of Lord Zadkiel here, and their service to life drew the momentum that prevented the island from sinking.

Archangel Zadkiel and Holy Amethyst embody God’s freedom, alchemy, transmutation, forgiveness and justice, the very same qualities embodied by Saint Germain and his twin flame. Their work corresponds to the seat-of-the-soul chakra, and their color is violet. The day of the seventh ray is Saturday, which means we can receive a greater release of light, energy and cosmic consciousness from the causal bodies of Zadkiel and Amethyst on that day.

Abraham with Archangel ZadkielThe name Zadkiel means “righteousness of God.” In rabbinic tradition, Zadkiel is known as the angel of benevolence, mercy and memory. In some traditions, he was the angel who held back Abraham’s hand when Abraham was about to sacrifice his son Isaac. Holy Amethyst, Zadkiel’s divine complement, was one of the angels who ministered to Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Discover Which of the Seven Archangels You Have a Special Connection With
…. And Learn the Secret of Unlocking Their Power

Archangel testWhen you finish answering the questions you will:

Violet Flame, Karma and Freedom

Violet Flame to Heal Body, Mind and SoulZadkiel and Holy Amethyst are here to help us secure our individual freedom so that when we are free, we can free our households, our towns, our nations, our planet. The main block to our freedom is our negative karma. We can transmute it with the violet-flame decrees. We can also balance negative karma by sending forth divine love and compassionately—human love and calling upon the law of mercy and forgiveness. (For more information check out Violet Flame to Heal Body, Mind and Soul).

Archangel Zadkiel describes what he and the ascended hosts see when a devotee of God calls forth the sacred fire of the violet flame:

“We see from inner levels the tremendous effort you make to transmute the layers upon layers of karma you have made in this and past lives. It is truly a marvelous thing for us to behold. In one moment you sit surrounded with every kind of negative thought revolving in your aura. In the next, you decide to invoke the violet flame.

“And lo! the mighty power of the seventh ray, as a giant electrode of cosmic energy, begins to form around your person. The violet-flame angels gather around you. With palms outstretched, they direct across your four lower bodies and your aura an arc of the violet ray. As that arc flashes across your being, it vaporizes the negative conditions. They literally disappear from heart and mind!”

Zadkiel refers to the violet flame as the universal solvent that the alchemists have sought throughout the ages. In a fore-runner to modern chemistry, medieval alchemists sought to transmute base metals into gold and to discover a universal cure for disease and a means of prolonging life. In a broader sense, alchemy is defined as “a power or process of transforming something common into something special” or “an inexplicable or mysterious transmuting.” Spiritual alchemy is the science of self-transformation.

Archangel Zadkiel says: “I possess in my heart the secrets of alchemy. Invoke them, if you will. And I shall release them to you in answer to your call.”

Amethyst Crystals Focus Freedom’s Flame

Through the amethyst crystal, the twin flame of Lord Zadkiel focuses the mother aspect of freedom to the evolutions of this planet. The amethyst is worn by all who serve on the seventh ray and their devotees. All jewels are actually precipitates or condensations of the flame that the jewel focuses. Thus, the amethyst is the focus of the freedom flame, and those jewels that have been consecrated by lightbearers contain in the center a replica of the flame that they represent.

The musical keynote of Holy Amethyst is the On The Beautiful Blue Danube, by Johann Strauss.

Nightly Call to Attend Archangel Zadkiel and Holy Amethyst’s Retreat

Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.
O my soul, let us arise from our abode.
Mighty I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self, with Archangel Michael and a cordon of blue-lightening angels, transport my soul clothed in my finer bodies, fully equipped with the armor of God, to Archangel Zadkiel and Holy Amethyst’s violet flame retreat over the island of Cuba or to the designated place of my Holy Work this night. Escort me, instruct me, and guide and protect me and all co-servers, I pray Thee, now and always as we serve to cut free all life on earth.

First look of Jon Hamm as Archangel Gabriel in Amazon’s Good Omens ~ Discworld.com

LONDON, Thursday 30 November – Amazon today reveals the first picture of Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning actor Jon Hamm (Mad Men, Baby Driver, Bridesmaids) in the role of the Archangel Gabriel in new Prime Original series Good Omens.

The six-part television adaptation by BBC Studios of the best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett is currently in production in the UK and will be launch globally on Amazon Prime Video in 2019, before also being shown in the UK on BBC Two at a later date.

On his casting in the role of Gabriel Jon Hamm says: “I read Good Omens almost twenty years ago. I thought it was one of the funniest, coolest books I’d ever read. It was also, obviously, unfilmable. Two months ago Neil sent me the scripts, and I knew I had to be in it.”

Showrunner Neil Gaiman adds: “Gabriel is everything that Aziraphale isn’t: he’s tall, good-looking, charismatic and impeccably dressed. We were fortunate that Jon Hamm was available, given that he is already all of these things without even having to act. We were even more fortunate that he’s a fan of the books and a remarkable actor.”

Claire Anderson, Costume Designer on the series says of Gabriel’s look: “Gabriel is the leader of the angels, and the most stylish and impeccably dressed of all of them, so we chose an immaculately tailored suit that Jon Hamm wears to perfection, in light colours, along with lilac accessories to bring out Gabriel’s unnerving violet eyes.”

This image of Hamm in character follows the first look image release of Michael Sheen and David Tennant as fussy angel and rare book dealer Aziraphale and the fast living demon Crowley, respectively, who were cast earlier this year.

Good Omens was commissioned for Amazon Prime Video and for BBC Two by Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two; Shane Allen, Controller, BBC Comedy Commissioning and BBC commissioning editor Gregor Sharp. It is being produced by the comedy team at BBC Studios, the BBC’s commercial production arm, Narrativia and The Blank Corporation, in association with BBC Worldwide.

Good Omens will launch globally on Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories in 2019 including in the UK, where it will also air on BBC Two at a later date. BBC Worldwide distributes rights for Good Omens internationally after the series premiere on Prime Video. The series will be brought to the screen by the highly acclaimed director/executive producer Douglas Mackinnon, whose credits include Knightfall, Dirk Gently, Doctor Who, Outlander and the standalone Victorian episode of Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, winner of the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Television Movie last year.

St. Michael’s Miraculous Apparitions: How The Archangel Powerfully Dedicated His Own Basilica | ChurchPOP

What an amazing story about St. Michael!

St. Michael the Archangel miraculously appeared four times in the following story, therefore dedicating his own basilica, the Sanctuary of San Michele Arcangelo.

St. Michael’s First Apparition

Between the third and eighth centuries, legend says that while a wealthy man named Gargano tended his animals, one of his bulls escaped and wandered off alone. Angered at finding the bull grazing by himself in front of a cave, he shot a poisoned arrow at it.

The arrow then turned around and hit him! Gargano was so disturbed that he told the bishop about his experience.

The bishop then ordered three days of prayer and fasting. On the final day, St. Michael appeared to the bishop.

St. Michael said:

“You have done well to ask God what was hidden from men. A miracle struck the man with his own arrow, so that it was clear that all this happens by my will.

“I am the Archangel Michael and I am always in the presence of God. The cave is sacred to me. And since I have decided to protect this place and its inhabitants on earth, I wanted to attest in this way that I am of this place and of everything that takes place as patron and custodian.

“Where the rock is thrown open, the sins of men can be forgiven. What will be asked here in prayer will be granted. Go therefore to the mountain and dedicate the cave to Christian worship.”

The bishop did not immediately follow St. Michael’s request because this cave was once a place of pagan worship.

St. Michael’s Second Apparition

St. Michael then appeared again in 492. However, this appearance connects to the fight between the Byzantines and the Lombards from 662-663, in which the Greeks attacked the Sanctuary of Gargano. Duke of Benevento Grimoaldo I, came to the sanctuary’s defense.

The account reads, “[…] And then the same night, which preceded the day of the battle, St. Michael appeared in vision to the bishop (Lorenzo Maiorano), he says that the prayers have been answered, he promises to be present and warns to give battle to the enemies at fourth hour of the day.”

Traditionally, the Duke of Benevento defeated the Greeks on May 8, and the battle was “accompanied by earthquakes, thunderbolts and lightning,” on May 8.

May 8 is now celebrated in the Catholic Church as the feast of the anniversary of the apparitions of St. Michael the Archangel.

St. Michael’s Dedication & Third Appearance

After the victory of Grimoaldo, Bishop Maiorano submitted to St. Michael’s request and decided to dedicate the sanctuary.

However, St. Michael appeared again and said to the Bishop of Siponto:

“It is not your task to consecrate the Basilica I built. I who founded it, I myself consecrated it. But you go in and go to this place, placed under my protection.”

Bishop Lorenzo, seven Apulian bishops, the Sipontino clergy, and the people of the land proceeded to the sacred mountain.

According to the Basilica’s website, a miracle occurred on their journey.

“Some eagles, with their spread wings, sheltered the bishops from the rays of the sun. Once at the Grotto, they found a rough altar erected there, covered with a vermilion pallium and surmounted by a Cross. Moreover, as the legend tells, they found in the rock the footprint of San Michael.”

This basilica is also known as the “Celestial Basilica” because St. Michael dedicated it himself.

The Fourth Apparition

In 1656, southern Italy experienced a terrible plague. Bishop Alfonso Puccinelli resorted to prayers and fasting, and asked for St. Michael’s intercession.

While in prayer, he felt an earthquake as St. Michael appeared to him “in a dazzling splendor and ordered him to bless the stones of his cave, carving on them the sign of the cross and the letters ‘MA’ (Michael Archangel).

“Anyone who had devotedly kept those stones with him would have been immune to the plague.”

St. Michael then cured the city and anyone who requested these stones.

These stones are now considered St. Michael’s relics and are successfully used for exorcisms.

The bishop later ordered a St. Michael statue to be built. The monument faces the balcony of the room where St. Michael appeared to him.

Here’s some photos of this miraculous sanctuary dedicated by St. Michael:
