In the Greek Tradition he was known as Apollo, God of the Sun and slayer of the snake with his bow and arrow.
In Persia he was known as Ahura Mazda, Lord of the Sun.
In the ancient Indian tradition as Krishna, the Boddisatva who filled Arjuna with a higher conscience so that he could gather his strength and slay the evil Kuravas.
And in the western tradition, he’s known as Michael, Prince of Light and of the Heavenly Hosts and Slayer of the Dragon.
The exoteric prayer of “St. Michael the Archangel” goes like this:
Defend us in Battle
Be our safeguard against the malice and snares of the devil
Rebuke the devil, we humbly beseech you
And do thou,
Oh Prince of the Heavenly Hosts
By the Divine Power of God
Thrust Into the Darkness
All those forces who wander about the world
Seeking the ruin of the souls of mankind.”
This is a powerful prayer. It is a prayer for someone who is awake to the truth that we are, every single day, under attack from different kinds of destructive forces. It is the prayer of a warrior.
The forces that the warrior must face represent, quite literally, the ‘Dragon’ of our age.
If practiced regularly, Michael’s prayer has the power to grant the individual protection from the evil powers of the world who would seek to destroy him/her in this difficult path.
If Michael’s calling could be heard in words, it would say, to those souls seeking to follow him:
‘Arise, and be watchful’.
There is a new generation of warriors growing every day, fighting against the current, like the salmon. A generation with open minds and open hearts willing to make a difference. A generation that sees reality for what it is.
A conscious generation.
The keepers of the living flame, the bearers of wisdom. The Michaelic Warriors of times and future lives to come.
