Archangel Michael speaks further of the purpose and meaning of our sacred sword and shield he gave us. “So when I have given you this shield, it was not simply for purposes of defense and protection…Your shield is a transmitter…when you hold your shield high throughout the multiverse…we can see it is like a transmission that goes out and you are declaring yourself: “Here I am, and I am prepared to be located and found and to be of service….your sword transmutes, transfigures into the Staff of Life, so that you may lean upon it when you are tired, when you are weary or when you are on a journey. It also transfigures into the Seal of Office to leadership. It may be a torch to light the way for others.”
Greetings, I am Michael. Yes, I jumped ahead. You know I am known for that. I come in defense of shields. (laughter)
Eons ago, I have given you, I have restored to you your sword and shield. And then again in this time and place, I have also restored to you your sword and shield. Later I will talk to you about my Strategic Peace Initiative for our Mother, but I wish to remind you a little about the purpose and the meaning of these tangible tools.
When I have asked you to unite and become one with your shield and when I have asked you to build a physical representation of your shield, I did not talk to you about protection. I talked to you about your declaration of what you wish to attract to yourself. Inscribed upon your shield is the truth of who you are. Sometimes you do not see it, but it is your sacred symbols. It is your name written in gold. It is your lineage, often around the circle. Your shields are beautiful.
But they are also a calling card so that when you hold your shield high throughout the multiverse – and I don’t simply mean with ET’s and humans, I mean far beyond – we can see it is like a transmission that goes out and you are declaring yourself: “Here I am, and I am prepared to be located and found and to be of service.” Your shield is a transmitter. It is a universal transmitter. It is far more effective than texting. It is far more effective than Twitter or gitter or litter, for there is a great deal of verbal litter on your planet right now.
So I am asking of you do not discard your shields. Use them. Use them with such discernment. Think of it as the way that you can draw your boundaries, that you can step behind your shield if you wish to be invisible and the Mother’s cloak isn’t handy. It is a multipurpose shield.
When I traveled long, long ago on the mission for the Mother to go and bring my brother back from what you think of as the heart of darkness and what we simply thought of as far out, I carried my shield so that he would recognize me, the same way I could hone in on his shield. They are universal transmitters, so they allow you to connect with people. So when I have given you this shield, it was not simply for purposes of defense and protection.
Now during this chaos when so many of you have felt that you have been caught in the duality or the crossfire of change, you have used it in that way and you have used it wisely. But if you are beaming into your shield, it is bouncing back on you and it isn’t going anywhere. So you are becoming radiant beacons and that is exactly what living and being in the divinity of your space means. You are impenetrable. Now if in your human self you decide you wish to be penetrated, then silly you. But there are times even when that is a sacred, sacred blessing, for the union of Love does not take place unless there is that joining.
When I gave you your sword, I bring you back to its purpose. Yes, it was for defense. But again, it was also to emblazon your name across the sky and the heavens. And it changes. You have forgotten that piece of it that your sword transmutes, transfigures into the Staff of Life, so that you may lean upon it when you are tired, when you are weary or when you are on a journey. It also transfigures into the Seal of Office to leadership. It may be a torch to light the way for others.
So do not think of these gifts as strictly means for defense. Are there times when you as angels on Earth will feel the need? Perhaps. But what I suggest to thee is that that will be very rare. It will be few and far between. Because you are also surrounded by we who defend you, by we who protect you, by we who travel with you.
There is no room, my beloved friends, there is no room for fear. If we were to sit in fear, we would never go anywhere, let alone to Earth. So know this and know that as I travel with you, you are not in harm’s way. So now I step aside.
