The day I woke with chest pains was the day I realized that my stress and anxiety was killing me; literally. I had to learn how to break the worry cycle, and I had to do it fast. I was a young attorney, freshly diagnosed with a life threatening illness, and working in a thankless job that was not only stressful, but mentally and physically demanding.
On that particular day the stress and anxiety began to hit me full force as I was driving in my car to a court appearance. I became dizzy, short of breath, and began to sweat profusely. My hands tingled and I struggled for air as I pulled over to the side of the road. Fear gripped me to the core. “What’s happening to me?” I thought.
I’m not alone. The fact is that stress related anxiety affects over 6.8 million adults in the US alone, and sadly many of those affected are unaware that they are being drawn deeper into its deadly web.
Fortunately there is a way out! You can break the cycle of worry with Archangel Michael’s help. Here’s how...
Before I share with you how to break the cycle of worry with Archangel Michael’s help I would like to briefly share with you what the symptoms of anxiety are. Knowledge is power, and knowledge applied in regards understanding the signs, symptoms and causes of stress and anxiety can save your life.

Break the Worry Cycle with Archangel Michael’s Help
Archangel Michael is one of the best known and most powerful in the archangel realm. You do not need to be of a certain religion or faith to call upon him for help.
Archangel Michael can assist you with spiritual and physical protection, and has the ability to cut through any energetic attachments of fear or negative thinking which are getting in your way. When your thoughts about a given subject or person become overly obsessive, it can be very difficult to stop worrying. Unfortunately, these emotionally charged thoughts work against you by activating the Universal Law of Attraction in reverse which could turn your worries into self-fulfilling prophesies.
Whether or not you believe in The Divine, or God, the angels can hear you and are waiting to help you once you ask. Archangel Michael wants you to call him to assist you. There is no worry about waiting for his services, because as an archangel he can be multiple places at once across the globe. Which means you can ask for his assistance as often as needed.
How to Call For Archangel Michael’s Help
It’s easy to call upon Archangel Michael. Lightly close your eyes and take a few deep, cleansing breaths. Inhale slowly through your nose for a count of four, hold for a count of four, and then exhale slowly through your mouth for a count of eight. Repeat this for 3 to 4 cycles. This allows you to relax so that you can clearly ask for and receive the guidance you need.
In your mind or out loud call upon Archangel Michael with the following prayer:
“Archangel Michael, I ask that you please cut through any energetic attachments of fear or negative thinking that is preventing me from living in joy. Please give me the clarity I need to see things as they truly are, and the courage to rise above them. Thanking for standing by my side right now and helping me in my time of need. Thank you. And so it is! Amen!.”
(You may change these words to whatever you feel comfortable with.)
How to Know if Archangel Michael is Around You
You will know he is with you by sparks of bright blue or purple showing up in your mind’s eye a minute or two after you have called upon him (at least that has been my experience). Others just feel a sense of warmth, a sudden wave of love in their hearts, or a slight pressure on the top of their head. Trust that he is with you and be open to any way that he may choose to communicate with you, and/or assist you.
Ask that Archangel Michael show you signs that he is around you throughout the day. He may send you reassurance that he is around you by bringing your attention to various signs and symbols such as a positive message or statement that resonates with you through the media such as television, radio, TV, Social Media, as well as print materials such as books and magazines.
Or you may directly experience such words and symbols from other means. For example, you may be driving in your car and see a street named ‘Michael’, or see a bumper sticker with the words ‘No Fear’.
Archangel Michael loves you and wants to help you break the cycle of worry forever. Understanding the symptoms of stress and worry will allow you to stop and recognize what you are feeling; giving you the direct opportunity to call upon Archangel Michael to help you clear away your anxiety and fears before they cause a downward spiral of negative emotions.
