| Order of Archangel Michael
Before Attending the Initiation
Preparation before Order of Michael
Preparation, energetically speaking, is really up to you, but here are some possibilities....
At the Initiation
- Meditation or prayer is
uplifting and energizing. If you can, set aside a time to meditate on
the day or evening prior to the event.
- Avoid alcohol or other altering substances on the day of the event.
- Meats can lower one's
energetic vibration; omitting them from your diet on the day of
the initiation (at least prior to it) may assist in opening more to the
energy. This is just an option. Please follow your own
- Drink plenty of water both before and after (especially after) the initiation.
- Wear the color blue if you wish (since Michael's light is blue).
OoM is interfaith and non-denominational, we wish
to value everyone’s belief system and will make clear certain
references toward that end.
Note about the use of
Christ in the invocation and in the ceremony:
If you come from a Christian orientation, then using Christ and Christ
Consciousness in the invocation is certainly a joyful thing.
If you have a different religion or belief system, you may embrace the
use of this word as explained by Marianne Williamson, who is Jewish, in
A Return to Love
when discussing the Course in Miracles: “A Course in Miracles
uses traditional Christian terminology ... in very non-traditional
ways. Words like Christ, Holy Spirit, Jesus, etc. are used for their
psychological rather than religious significance.... Christ refers to
the Divine Love that is the core and essence of every human mind....
Jesus and other enlightened masters are our evolutionary older
The online New
Age Spirituality Dictionary gives the meaning of Christ
Consciousness as: "The spiritual and mystical experience of the unity
of all the universe. To attain cosmic consciousness is to see the
universe as God and God as the universe, and everything as part of this
If your faith is other than Christian, it's possible to accept
these words in an energetic and/or psychological framework rather than
a religious one.
Those of other faiths can look at Jesus as Ascended Master Jesus and at
the Christ Consciousness as a level of energy that leads us to
ascension, which is what it is. Even so, if anyone
experiences discomfort at using these words, you may replace in your
mind (or aloud during the invocation) the words Christed Light of Love
with Unity Consciousness and the word Jesus with Sananda (also his
name) or with any of the great masters (Buddha, Krishna, etc.).
The initiation will take place in groups of four. Each group
will sit in a diamond shape. The person at the front of the diamond* will
receive the initiation for all four. While Diana works with
the person at the front channeling Michael’s energy to him or
her, Archangel Michael Himself will stand with each of the other three
and perform the ceremony on each one. The person in front
with whom Diana is working will hold the energy third dimensionally for
the other three, but all will receive exactly the same energy on
* The diamond configuration is significant. A diamond (the stone) can
cut through anything but is unable to be cut by anything except itself.
This symbolizes purity and integrity, both traits that
resonate deeply with Archangel Michael's energy. The diamond as a form
consists of two triangles joined base to base, which anchor energies
from above and below and represent the Alpha and Omega. In addition,
one triangle may be viewed as representing Man and the other Source or
the Universe, merging together in oneness in the shape of the diamond.
So it is fitting that we align energies through the diamond group of
four for the initiation ceremony.
