St. Michael is a powerful ally when it comes to protection magick. I often use this ritual when faced with a situation where I feel threatened or fearful. I find it both useful and reassuring on an emotional level. To be honest, this one has never failed me!
To perform a St. Michael Protection Spell you will need the following items:
* A bowl of fresh water
* An image of St. Michael
* Any type of red candle
* A piece of parchment paper and pen
* Rosemary and Peppermint (fresh or dried)
* Any type of red flowers
Find a safe place to set up an altar. Get your image of St, Michael and place it upon your altar. Then, take your flowers and place them on the right of the image. Then take your bowl of fresh water and place it on the left of the image. Get your piece of parchment paper and write down what you wish to be protected from. It can be a person, situation or even a general fear. Repeat this two more times. Then turn your paper to the right 90 degrees. On top of your issue, write your full name three times. Lay this flat on the table and sprinkle it with rosemary and peppermint. Place this in the middle of your altar, Get your candle and place it directly next to your parchment paper. When ready, light the candle and ask St. Michael to guide and protect you. You may also ask him to specifically protect you from your situation, person, etc.
Of course, you can always recite the Prayer to St. Michael written by Pope XIII in 1886 (see below) or simply create a prayer of your own.
PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle,
be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil;
may God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God, cast into hell
Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls.
