Working with Archangel Michael can be helpful on many levels. Michael offers us protection as well as direction. The cards chosen for this reading come from the Archangel Michael Oracle deck by Doreen Virtue, PhD. They bring messages of faith, trust, and peace. As we work more closely with Archangel Michael, we can strengthen our belief in the Divine.

Ask Archangel Michael to help you with this situation.

Because Archangel Michael is our protector, we can always trust that he will help us in any situation. When we have faith in him, all will be well. It then becomes easier to find peace in our heart. Archangel Michael offers us this opportunity when we take time to listen to him. Sometimes our faith and trust are tested because we want specific solutions to a problem. However, when we widen our perspective of the situation, it is easier to consider other ways of viewing the situation. Ultimately, one or more of them might be more beneficial.

Doreen tells us, “This card serves as a reminder that it’s never too late to get the angels involved, and their assistance will improve everything immediately… including giving your inner peace, new ideas, and insights. Michael will help you in ingenious and unexpected ways, so be open to miracles that take on surprising forms.” [pp.16-17]

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

This situation is already resolved.

Our problems are of our own making. We are the ones who erect the blockages to a perfect life. Working with Archangel Michael helps us surmount the obstacles we throw on our path. From Michael’s perspective, there are none, so he will work with us when we call on him to help change our perspective. This situation we struggle with can be undone with Michael’s help. First we need faith that this problem can be resolved. Second, we must trust that we have help. And third, we must believe we can be at peace. This comes from knowing this situation has never been a problem on the higher planes, so it does not need to be one in our life.

Doreen says, “This card comes to you as reassurance that the situation you’re inquiring about is happily concluded. The angels have been working behind the scenes to heal the source of your concerns. Although you may not yet see how the issue has been resolved, trust that it has. Let go of worries, and relax with the certainty that all is well.” [p. 84]

Include this prayer to Archangel Michael: I give any worries, cares, and concerns to you in exchange for true peace in all ways. Thank you for resolving this [situation] in a Divinely perfect way.

Believe and trust

In working with Archangel Michael, it’s good to establish some routines for yourself, particularly at bedtime. Take stock of the day’s events, both good and not so good. Determine the problems in which Archangel Michael can be of help. If you are continually viewing a problem from only one perspective, believe and trust that Michael can and will work with you to find other solutions. You are stuck because you are resisting giving up your point of view. That belief and trust in Michael can go a long way in helping you release your attachment to the problem. It’s the release that helps you find peace, because there is always more than one choice in helping resolve a difficulty.

Doreen advises, “To resolve this situation, you must believe that everything is healed`and whole right now. As your faith grows stronger, the doorway to Divine solutions will open. Your trust enables your mind and body to relax, which increases your creative energy and strength- two qualities that will prove especially helpful to you.” [p.20]

Include this prayer: Before going to sleep tonight, say: “Archangel Michael, please enter my dreams and replace fear with faith and trust. Let me be filled with strength, courage, and confidence.”


Working with Archangel Michael can be very rewarding. Call on him when you are in physical danger. He will work to protect you. In addition, call on him when you have a situation you cannot resolve and need to find a different perspective on it. Archangel Michael is available to help whether your needs are great or small. Have faith. Adonai.
