Finding Courage To Take Action

Summer’s beginning to wind down, and we can feel a chill that has come into the air. The fruits of nature are ripening in this wonderful time of harvest.

During this season of autumn, a picture of the Archangel Michael who battles the evil dragon always comes to me. This archetype has appeared in mythology since ancient times.

Ancient Hindu texts speak about Indra slaying a dragon while the ancient Babylonians told stories of Marduk who slayed Tiamat. The archetype that holds true here is of one who overcomes or transforms evil through courage in action. Having the courage to take action to transform the world.

Archangel Michael has been one of the most important guides and healers in my life. You may have heard me mention this before!

Every year, at this time, we can reconnect with this image of Archangel Michael. We are given the opportunity once again to rise to this call to overcome our own inner dragons. These can show up in our lives as fear, anxiety, or even in a longing to stay in our comfort zone, taking an easier path by not taking action.


​Yet with the impulse of Archangel Michael, we can overcome this tendency and courageously find our strength to take action in bringing forth a new and healthier vision for living in our communities together.

In this season, we can also take a moment to honor the courage that we see every day in those around us. We can recognize and encourage each other to move toward our full potential as human beings. And in doing this, we can bring transformation in the world.

At this time in the world, this becomes an urgent call for us. We’re being called to be courageous and take action to make change in the world. Also to join together and support those around us who are doing the same.


Take a moment and read these words to support you in letting go of your fear and finding your courage to take action in this time.

For Courage

We must eradicate from the soul
all fear and terror
of what comes toward us out of the future.

We must look forward
with absolute equanimity to everything that may come.
And we must think that whatever comes

is given to us by a world directive full of wisdom.

It is part of what we must learn during this age,
namely to act out of pure trust
in the ever present help of the spiritual world;
Truly nothing else will do if our courage is not to fail us.

Therefore let us discipline our will,
and let us seek the awakening from within ourselves,
every morning and every evening.
-Rudolf Steiner
