Archangel Michael is always willing to help when asked. He will work with you to achieve your goals. His work with you is most effective when you have specific intentions. Having a focused intention helps you see the progress you are making. This reading comes from the Archangel Michael Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue, PhD. Three cards were chosen from the top of the deck. They are: 1) Decide to be happy now; 2) Ask Archangel Michael to help you with this situation; and 3) Keep your eyes on your targeted intention. These cards will help you use direction to find intention

Decide To Be Happy Now

Prayer: Thank you for helping me open my heart to happiness, joy, and bliss. I am now willing to see all of the goodness in my life.

The more you open your heart to new possibilities, the better. Growth can be difficult, but when you use intention to find direction, the path will be easier to follow. It’s important to always remember you have at least two choices in any circumstance. You may stay on the path presently being followed, or you can find something new. In addition, you will always have a better chance for achieving your goal when you have a positive attitude. So, as you perceive your life getting better and better, you have a greater opportunity to tap into happiness. You can do this by being open, positive, and flexible. Then, call on Archangel Michael to help you with any endeavor.

Ask Archangel Michael To Help You With This Situation

Prayer: Archangel Michael, thank you for assisting me with [this situation]. Please help me be filled with faith and peace at all times.

Regardless of the situation, Michael will be available to help. You simply must trust that he will be there for you. Then focus your attention on what you wish to accomplish and a reasonable plan for achieving it. Again, use intention to find direction. It’s important to remind yourself, just because you ask Michael for help and map out your strategy does not mean your goal will be reached immediately. So, having a positive attitude and faith that all will work out can make a big difference. Patience is important, as well as finding peace within you that all will be well. Ultimately, your goal may change along the way, and you may have to try a variety of strategies to reach it, but that peace, that knowing all will be well, makes a big difference. It’s all about belief in yourself and what you desire.

Keep Your Eyes On Your Targeted Intention

Prayer: Thank you, Archangel Michael, for helping me focus on my inner vision and intention. I ask for your guidance in releasing any fears or doubts, granting me the confidence and courage to take action toward realizing my dreams.

You are perfectly capable of maintaining your focus and intention without Archangel Michael. However, when your vision takes a long time to come to fruition, it can sometimes become blurred, or even lost. That is when calling on Archangel Michael to help you can be invaluable. Every so often, check in with yourself and Michael to make sure you are on the right path, or whether it needs to be revised in some way. Make sure you know what your focus is every step of the way. You will be happy you did and you’ll feel ownership of the whole process. When you use intention to find direction, you have a sense of confidence in yourself that you can achieve whatever you want.


Archangel Michael is our protector and a steadfast guide. Always call on him to help you sort your thoughts, formulate your plan, and move ahead with purpose. Adonai.
