Do you believe in angels? Which of these guardian angel signs have you observed? Let us know in the comments.
1. You Dream About An Angel Visitation
Dreams are often considered the windows to the soul, but they also can indicate that your guardian angel is nearby.
Angel believers report that a guardian angel may visit you in a dream to let you know that they are watching over you. They may try to deliver some kind of message, or they may simply be reassuring you about their presence.
2. You See Strange Colored Orbs
If you spot a bright light or a strange colored orb, you might think that your eyes are playing tricks on you. However, these lights and orbs are said to be “vehicles for angels.”
You may spot an orb in your everyday life, or you may look at a photograph and notice that there is a strange orb floating around you. Many claim that these unique lights are a sign that your guardian angel is by your side.
3. You Notice A Sudden Sweet Smell
If you cannot explain an unexpectedly pleasant smell, it may be a sign that a guardian angel is nearby.
Believers report that these sweet scents may simply be your angel’s way of reaching out to you, to let you know that they are with you. The smells may take the form of delicious food, fragrant flowers, or a pleasant perfume that a deceased loved one used to wear.
4. You Find A White Feather
An excerpt from Jacky Newcomb’s book, Do You Know Your Guardian Angel, reads, “A feather is a safe and gentle way for your angels to show you they are with you. This is one of the most common of all the angel signs.”
A white feather may cross your path in an extremely unlikely location, and is said to arrive at times when you are most in need. Believers say that this angel sign is your guardian’s way of letting you know that they are with you and that you are not alone.
5. Your Baby Sees Something You Can’t
Many believe that babies and pets may be able to see guardian angels, even when the rest of us can’t. Angels are said to put animals and babies at ease.
You might see a pet staring at a certain spot in the room, or a baby smiling at something you can’t see. If you spot a baby seeming to interact with something that isn’t there, it may just be a sign that your guardian angel is present.
6. You See Angels In The Clouds
As a child, you may have spent time laying on your back, staring up at the clouds. But some claim there are certain cloud shapes that may be signs from your guardian angel.
These angel clouds could take the literal form of an angel. But they may also appear in pleasing shapes, such as hearts, or in symbols that are particularly meaningful or personal to you.
7. You Spot Angel Numbers In Common Places
According to Ask-Angels.com, “One of the most common ways angels will attempt to capture your attention and guide you is through Angel Numbers.”
Reportedly, these are numbers that either have specific, personal meaning to you — such as birthdays or anniversaries — or magical, repeating numbers such as “333” or “11:11.” These numbers popping up in everyday situations may be your guardian angel’s way of getting your attention.
8. You Experience A Sudden Change In Temperature
Similar to a sudden, unexplainable odor, an unexpected change in temperature may be a sign that your guardian angel is at your side.
People report these temperature changes in a variety of ways. Some people will feel a strange chill. But others may experience a sudden warmth surrounding them. This warmth may be your angel’s way of giving you a reassuring hug.
9. You Hear Muffled Voices
You might not be able to literally talk with your guardian angel. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t trying to communicate with you.
Some who believe in angels claim that they hear muffled voices in otherwise quiet situations. This distant, muffled sound could be your guardian angel attempting to speak to you, or it may simply be their way of assuring you that they are close.
10. You Feel Like You Are Not Alone
Everyone has experienced the feeling that they are not alone at one time or another. This might just be a sixth sense, or it might be the raising of the hairs on the back of your neck.
Many angel believers can sense when their guardian angel is with them. They report that they know someone else is present, even though the room may appear completely empty.
11. You Feel Tingling At The Crown Of Your Head
One specific feeling that many believers report is a tingling at the back of the head. This tingling may take the form of sudden warmth, or it may be more akin to when your foot falls asleep.
Many report that the relationship between the crown of the head and an angel’s halo can be a powerful connection. This tingling may be your guardian angel’s preferred way of communicating with you.
