The flower’s strong associations with Archangel Michael make it a powerful protector from unwanted energies and negative influences. It also strengthens our connections with spirit so we feel stronger, more peaceful and secure. At the same time, Archangel cleanses and balances our own energy systems. We feel less torn apart and fragmented and more authentic and whole with a solid, central core. From this position we can respond to life’s stresses and strains in a more balanced, flexible and creative way.
