Order of Archangel Michael
Initiation and Activation
Note from Order of Archangel Michael Founder Diana Henderson: It was my profound joy to birth the Order of Archangel Michael in 2002 and my honor to facilitate these initiations for 13 wonderful years. I have loved every minute of this aspect of service, and I remain grateful for all of the blessings it has brought into my life! Now it is time to focus on other aspects of my work as guided by Spirit. However, I will be leaving the Order in good hands!
When I was guided to end my term as facilitator of our wonderful group, I knew exactly whom to call! A number of years ago during a session together, Nancie Benson received the message from Archangel Michael that someday she would be facilitating initiations into the Order of Michael. So the time came, and Archangel Michael told me that she needed to be given the option to choose this path saying that she was likely to accept the position. So it was with absolute joy that I passed the torch (and the stained glass sword!) to Nancie at the initiation on June 28, 2015. I know of no one who is better suited to taking on the task of guiding this group to ever greater heights. Nancie is my spirit sister, my long-time friend and colleague, and an amazing channel for beloved Michael's energy. I have been fortunate to experience her work personally and also to share in it as we cooperatively conducted Angelic Group Cleansing and Healing sessions in the past. After 13 years at the helm of this organization, I am blessed to be able to pass it into the keeping of my cherished friend!
I will continue to offer the membership packages from previous Order of Archangel Michael Initiations—the Peace Attunement of October 2008, the Ascension Attunement of 12/21/12, and (soon to be ready) the Rainbow Sword of Light Attunement of June 28, 2015, my final initiation as leader of the Order. Nancie will offer the initiations in her own way as things unfold for her. Those will be noted on the Order of Michael website as they are scheduled. For now, scroll to the bottom of this page to see the payment buttons if you wish to receive a membership package from me.

I, Michael, come to you to heal that which in you is fear, for I am the Protector, and I carry the Sword of Light. I protect this Universe, and I bring you now the knowledge that each of you is surrounded by the Light, and I ask you to arm yourselves with the Purest Love of the Universe.... Imagine the hottest flame in existence; it is that Flame which is beyond heat. It is the flame of Love, Pure Love, that comes to you. That is what I am made of; that is what the Sword of Light is made of; that is your protection and your cleansing. If you choose, allow the Blue-White Flame to encompass you, and invite that flame that stems from the Sword of Michael to heal, to clear, to cleanse any negative thought, any part of you that is touched by grief, by anger, by fear. ~ message from Archangel Michael via Diana Henderson, September 13, 2001
Awakening the Order of Archangel Michael and Faith
The Order of Archangel Michael is an interfaith and non-denominational group of individuals—open to anyone who feels the call to participate. The next opportunity to join will be on June 28, 2015, in Raleigh, North Carolina. As always, this gathering will include a deep meditation with Michael, an initiation and an activation or opening of the crown and brow chakras to the energies of Archangel Michael (according to the readiness of the initiate). In addition to sounding a clarion call to those who feel drawn to participate for the first time, Archangel Michael encourages current members to attend in order to receive this special gift of vibrational upliftment.
As in many previous initiations, again we will send out a vibration intended to balance planetary energies in order to provide greater equilibrium to Mother Earth.
The initiation activates and aligns your inner Sword of Light in harmony with Archangel Michael's Sword of Light. Once activated, the sword within beckons you to follow your path, to rise up and meet the vision before you, to be fully human in order to remember what it means to be fully Divine. With natural creative spirit, we gatefully carry that knowledge forward with a sense of honor and dedication as we awaken to the Renaissance of Spirit!
in person in June 2015!

*$44 is the MINIMUM donation for new members to attend this event. Please feel free to give more if you can afford more. The sliding scale is from $44 to $444 as each person can afford. Thank you.
Archangel Michael and Faith together with Metatron and the Shekinah will assist participants in opening to the frequencies of the Rainbow Spectrum of Divine Light through the Sword and Shield of Michael and Faith. The beloved Archangels will guide us in embracing the Feminine and Masculine Rainbow of Divine Light in order to hasten our journey toward higher consciousness. As we align conscious awareness with the Higher Self, we empower ourselves to embody the grace that lifts all into Ascension.
Of this attunement, Archangel Michael says, “In this time of shifting into the next octave, the Sword of Light becomes the vessel for the resplendent Rainbow Rays of the Creator. Beloved ones we bring to you the full radiant spectrum of Divine Light to shield, to heal, to cleanse and align, to lift your radiant being to the next level. Rise with the Rainbow Sword as we sing the song of Ascension.”

sounding a clarion call to those who feel drawn to participate for the
first time, Archangel Michael invites current members who have not yet
experienced this attunement to attend (or participate at a distance) in
order to receive this special gift of vibrational upliftment, the next
step in our evolution.
Induction into the Order of Archangel Michael and Faith is an energetic experience that may differ from individual to individual. What one receives from the initiation will be in accordance with his/her own readiness and willingness to receive.
The initiation is a kind of compassionate “call to arms” as at this time in history we are asked to stand with the Light, to banish the darkness within our own hearts through Love and healing, to bring forth peace upon this planet.

Potential Benefits of the Order of Archangel Michael initiation:
Note: The Order of Archangel Michael is not intended to supersede or replace anyone's religious practices or beliefs. We accept members from all faiths. Aligning with Michael's light can amplify our most loving intentions for healing and enlightening all.
Archangel Michael [Hebrew Mikha'el, Arabic Mika'il, or Mikha'il], whose name in Hebrew means "Perfect One of God" or "who is like unto God," carries the essence of the spiritual warrior and is the Protector of humanity. Even though anyone can call on Archangel Michael for assistance at any time, the initiation heightens and enhances our connection to his energy and opens us more completely to that energy's capacity for awakening our innate gifts.
For many people, the initiation promotes greater awareness energetically and intuitively. The third eye and crown chakras are attuned by Michael's energy during the initiation, enabling us to access that greater awareness more easily when we are ready to do so. Our inner Sword of Light is also awakened during the initiation, which strikes a chord and sends the resounding message to the Universe that we are ready to stand with the Light and live in alignment with the True Self. The initiation often puts people more in touch with their life or soul purpose and can lead us onto that path or enhance our pathwork if we're already walking our walk.
From Christopher Bamford's introduction to The Archangel Michael: His Mission and Ours, by Rudolf Steiner: "Michael cannot fulfill his mission without humanity's cosmic vocation of freedom, individuality and love. Human beings, too, depend on Michael for the fulfillment of their task . . . His great joy is helping those who of their own free deed enter the ranks of those collaborating in the great work of the invisible."
By becoming initiated into the Order of Archangel Michael, we indeed join the ranks of those who collaborate with the Divine.
We within the Order of Archangel Michael are on a journey of awakening. It is time to embrace the Light within and accept with love the truth the soul knows. Let us make the ultimate choice of free will to know complete humanness and love humanity in its entirety.

Council of Light message, October 5, 2001
"The wings of Michael outstretch and touch the hearts and souls of those who will be quickened, awakened or reawakened into the Order."
"It is time to awaken those within the Order. Some shall be awakened to the Order merely for this lifetime in this crucial moment upon your planet, and some shall be awakened for all time. Some are merely being reawakened into the Order from whence they came. It is a gift and a privilege to serve the Light of the Father, of Creator, by bearing the Sword and the Shield of Light and Love.
"What does it mean to join the Order of Michael? The meaning in this instance is twofold. First, those who are being reawakened were already of the Order of Michael, of this angelic realm of Light and of the service of Michael, which serves the Creator by carrying the Sword and Shield of Light to cleanse, to heal, to Love, to enlighten, to bring about enlightenment and to fight the battles of the Light. Some are reawakening to this purpose; they are the warriors of the Light. They are that which, through the Ultimate Love, bring the Light to every darkened corner of this Universe, to every darkened soul. And so this is the first group that comprises the Order.
"The second is this: There will be some who shall be called unto this Order who are from other realms of Light, souls who in the past have not been of the Order of Michael but who are asked in this life, in this time, to fight the battles of the Light—to heal themselves completely, to conquer all their inner demons—so that they might be of utmost service in bringing forth the Shift toward Ascension. And those who are called for this lifetime shall be much like the Priesthood of Melchizedek. They are being called to take up the Sword, to purify themselves, to love themselves ultimately, purely and completely so that they might bring that same Love to every person they encounter, to every being in need of enlightenment. The members of the Order are being called to teach; they are being called to cleanse; they are being called to battle against the darkness, to stand with the Light. It is a great calling and a great service. They may choose to assist us in this lifetime by bringing the Sword of Light into your world in its fullness to unfold the Truth, to shine Light upon the darkness, to allow the Light to emerge from within and without and cleanse all upon this planet.
"So this is what the calling consists of. These are the ones who will come into the Light of Michael. Some of them already serve in one form or another, but they need the additional quickening, for that is what this is, a quickening, the Sword of Light becoming activated within them—within their bodies, within their psyches, within their energy fields, within their beings.
"These initiates shall be asked to serve in many ways. From time to time when this is necessary, those in the Order shall be asked to stand with me, to carry the Light into the Darkness upon the astral plane, to cleanse the darkness from the ethereal regions closest to the Earth. But first they must conquer the darkness within themselves, cleanse their own beings. They will be asked to become as purified by their inner Sword of Light as they may and then to assist others to heal in this way. Some will be asked to become healers; some already are. And when we speak of healers, we mean those who bring the healing through them—their own beings healed already—who are willing to serve and offer this healing to all who are ready to receive it. The healing of Michael is the cleansing fire of purest Love. It is the healing that banishes from the being all darkness. It is the healing that transmutes the negative thought-forms into the Light. Those who are initiated into the Order will be asked to touch their own sword of light to my Sword of Light, and from that sword they shall enlighten all around them.
"There is much more. This is only the beginning, but what needs to be understood is that the Sword is a cleansing, the Sword is a healing; the Sword is enlightenment. And the Order that comes forth is being quickened to bring healing, to bring enlightenment, to banish the darkness first within themselves and then within this world—not only in the world that is physically manifested as you see it but also within the energetic bodies and upon the astral plane. Their work shall encompass cleansing and healing and teaching others to cleanse and heal themselves. Their work shall embrace all this and more and shall hasten the time of Ascension."
I feel humbled by the task of offering
these initiations, I have been called by Archangel Michael and the
Council of Light to be one who awakens the Order of Michael in our
time. After many months of reticence and soul searching, I could no
longer ignore this message of October 2001; so I chose to honor this
calling to the best of my ability beginning the task at the time of the
Solstice in 2002, which seems most appropriate. ~ Diana
