Archangel Michael, Bronze, 10 inches
What happens to iron filings around a magnet?
Magnets create an invisible forcefield around them called a magnetic field, and this field creates the pattern that you see in the iron filings. Different kinds of magnets will produce different patterns.
Our world also has invisible forcefields of light-energy. Even our bodies have an invisible forcefield around them. It's called an aura.
When Archangel Michael wields his sword of blue flame in answer to our prayers, his electrical energy of faith goes right through us and lines up all our electrons in much the same way a magnet lines up the iron filings. When this happens, we instantly feel better because it gives us a spiritual adjustment.
