15 Angel Signs and how to spot themWant to know if you have been visited by an Angel?
If so it might be time to take a closer look at the signs around you.
Angels and those we have lost, particularly ones we have loved dearly,
will often leave signs to reassure, comfort and guide those they've
visited. Whether it's to remind us of their presence, help us through a
difficult time or merely to let us know they're there if we need them,
these beings will always find a way of alerting us to their presence -
often in very unusual and unexpected ways.
If you'd like to find out whether you've been visited by an angel or
deceased loved one, why they've come to you and interpret any secret
messages they might have left you, the following overview of some of the
most common signs and their meanings should answer some of your
White feathers Perhaps one of
the most well-known signs you've been visited by an Angel, these magical
blessings are something many of us keep an eye out for and treasure
once we discover.
Often referred to as 'calling cards,' they're left as welcome reminders
that Angels are there for us if we need them and continually watching
over us each day.
Pennies Celestial beings will
often leave coins for those they are watching over - in fact, it's
thought that's where the expression 'pennies from heaven' originally
Left to console and reassure those who find them - generally when
they're feeling a little blue or under the weather - they're said to be
tossed by angels to make smiles out of frowns.
Butterflies The beautiful
insects are frequently sent to us by our lost loved ones, either to
remind us they're always watching over us and nearby, or just to let us
know they're OK.
Robins Also signifying a visit
from a deceased family member of friends, these are always a welcome
sight and will often visit the same gardens year after year, reassuring
those who see them that their passed loved ones are still near.
Rainbows If you're thinking
about Angels and a rainbow suddenly catches your attention, it's likely
to be one of these celestial beings confirming their presence to you -
even more spectacular when there's been no rain!
Scents Sometimes those we've
lost will remind us of their presence by surrounding us with a
particular fragrance or smell that makes us think of them, so take note
of any familiar aromas that waft your way - you never know, they might
just be a sign from a deceased loved one! Angels also like to make their
appearances known through the power of smell and will often leave
floral trails in the areas they have visited.
Dreams Angels and deceased loved
ones will also often come to us in while we sleep as this tends to be
the time we're most relaxed and receptive. Generally speaking, these
will be more vivid than your regular ones and remain in your mind much
Sparkles of Light Depending on
their colour, these messages will usually be sent by the angel whose
help you need most at the time - if you've been going through a hard
time, for instance, and keep seeing green sparkles every where you go,
it could be a sign from Archangel Raphael - the Angel synonymous with
healing - letting you know he's there to help you.
Touch This is likely to be very
subtle and either feel like a soft brush on your arm or neck, or a
tingling sensation across your back.
A Voice Seemingly coming out of
nowhere, this is one of the most obvious signs an Angel's come to visit
you and will either literally tell you it's there for you out loud, or
reassure you - perhaps when you are feeling frightened or uncertain -
through a little whisper that everything is going to be OK.
Music and Television Hearing a song or lyric on the radio using
words that help, reassure or confirm something for you is never a
coincidence, but the work of angels attempting to clarify or ease a
situation for you. Similarly, if you happen to be flicking through
channels and come across a show or documentary that relates to something
that's been troubling you at the time, don't ignore it; it could be a
message from the celestial realm giving you your answer!
Books and Magazines The next
time a meaningful piece of writing grabs your attention, whether it's a
book suddenly falling from a shelf as you walk by, or words in a
magazine that instantly catch your eye, take a moment to read what they
say; you'll be amazed at how often they'll relate in some way to your
current situation. Every time they do, you can be sure it's a message
from an Angel.
Telephone calls If you suddenly
receive a call from someone you really need support from at the exact
moment you most need them, you can be sure an Angel's intervened
somewhere along the way, either making them think of you at just the
right time or giving them the clarity and wisdom to offer you the advice
Buildings and Advertising Slogans This could be something simple
as asking Archangel Michael for help and then noticing a building named
St Michael's shortly after - a sure sign he has heard your call and is
there if you need him. However, angels will also send their messages to
you in a number of different ways so make sure you look out for any
recurring slogans on billboards, shop names or roads that seem to strike
a chord with you.
Angel Shapes Never underestimate how clever angels can be; they
are all around us and can physically appear - in the form of an outline
or shape - in almost anything, from the clouds in the sky to the bubbles
in your bath!
