Being Visited by Angels? Here Are 14 Angel Signs that You Are!


I saw the sign. No, not the Ace of Base song. We’re talking Angel signs.

As a kid, sleep terrified me. I had nightmares. For years. Like pajama-soaking-wake-up-gasping nightmares. I would tuck in my legs and arms tightly under my blankets, making sure there were no missed openings. No legs or hands hanging over the edge of the mattress. Ever. In my child’s mind, I believed that if I was completely covered, nothing could get me. On the really bad nights, I covered my head, too, like a cocoon. Even in the heat of summer. And I didn’t come out until I could see the morning light.

Waking up was only a little better than the nightmare. I’d startle awake…shakened. It seemed so real. Wait – was it real? I’d lie there in total stillness with eyes clenched, trying to silence my breaths so if it was real that “something” or “someone” wouldn’t hear me. Throughout the day, flashes of the nightmare would play back in my mind.

There’s one particular nightmare that’s stayed with me. I was eight years old when it happened. To this day, I can recall the details vividly. In it, I was standing in my childhood home wearing jeans and a blue top with tiny pearlescent buttons dotting a scalloped white collar. It was raining. Hard. And I was in harm’s way. Suddenly, a small, sparkly orb whisked by me, gradually growing into a six-foot tall, brilliantly glowing being. One by one family members who had passed appeared alongside the orb. They spoke in unison, though I couldn’t make out the words. I knew they were there to help. That was one of my earliest memories of an Angel visiting me.

The Angels have many, many ways to show you that they’re around. Sometimes, these Angel signs appear during unexpected or difficult life events when you’re in special need of hope, comfort, encouragement and connection. These highly vibrational beings are always with you to guide you safely on your path. And they’ll send little clues to let you know they’re by your side. All you have to do is ask for help and keep a lookout for these signs so you can fully appreciate their Angelic messages.


Here are the 14 most common Angel signs

1. Dreaming of Angels

Some say dreams are windows to the soul. Others argue that the soul is more “awakened” when you’re dreaming. In the dream state, you’re more receptive to receiving messages and premonitions. That’s because we don’t have the blockages and distractions that we do when we’re wide eyed.

Having Angel dreams? These divine beings may be sending reassurance that they are indeed watching over you. They may also be delivering important messages or guidance you may be seeking or needing.

Tip: Can’t remember your dreams? Before you go to sleep, ask your Angels to visit in your dreams and for their assistance in helping you remember their message. Say to yourself or out loud:

Angels, please come to me tonight in my dreams and allow me to be open to receive the divine insights I need to help me with [current situation]. Please help me recall this message upon waking and give me the guidance, courage and confidence to apply in my life. Thank you for your ever-loving support.

Keep a small journal or notebook and pen by your bed so you can jot everything down. With practice, you’ll be able to improve your recall.

2. Angel orbs

Have you ever taken a photo only to discover later that there’s a strange-colored orb? Ever look up and see brilliant specks of light dancing around you (and you’re not staring into the sun)? It’s long been rumored that these glorious light phenomena are signs that your Angels are near.


3. White feathers

Finding white feathers on your path is a classic Angel sign. Now if you’re visiting the zoo, seeing feathers doesn’t count. The trick is finding an unexpected white feather in an unlikely location. Interpret its presence as a reminder that you’re not alone.

4. Sweet scents

If you happen upon a beautifully sweet smell (and a cupcake isn’t nearby), it may be confirmation that your Angels are here. The Angels will often use scents – such as food, flowers, perfume – to reach out to you.

5. Babies see something you don’t

Angels, babies and animals share a natural connection. Angels are said to comfort both. So, if you see little ones staring up at the corner of a room, clapping their hands and pointing, or smiling at something you can’t see, it could be an Angel.

6. Pets see something you don’t

Just like babies, pets can see and sense Angels around them. I’ve personally watched as Fiona, my Kerry Blue Terrier, followed a glowing orb with her head as it floated from one side of the room all the way to the other.

7. Angel clouds

As kids, we’ve all lain on the grass, trying to make out images in the clouds. When Angels are trying to communicate with us, they may send us meaningful symbols and shapes, like hearts, in the form of clouds. Or you could see wings – even a full Angel silhouette.

8. Angel numbers

First you see 11:11 on the clock. Then a street sign, followed by an airline ticket and the license plate of the car in front of you. Well, your Angels may be trying to grab your attention. The Angels use repeated number sequences to alert you to their presence and communicate important messages to you.

There are endless Angel numbers out there, and each combination means something very different in your life. The one thing that every number has in common? They all suggest that the Angels are present and looking out for you. Pay close attention when you see repeating Angel numbers to discern their unique divine message meant just for you.

9. Sudden temperature changes

Did the room turn inexplicably cold? Warm? An Angel’s presence can affect room temperature. Unexplained and drastic fluctuations could indicate that your Angel entered the room or is by your side.


10. Angel voices

Yes, you can absolutely hear an Angel talking to you! The voice may sound like it’s coming from inside your head or outside of you, as though a physical person is speaking to you (but no one is around).

You may hear your name, helpful advice (“Take Oak Street instead of Spruce”) or just muffled voices.

Tip: If you can’t make out what they’re trying to communicate, simply ask your Angels to speak louder and clearer. Trust me, they don’t mind.

11. Physical sensations

If you’re experiencing tingling at the crown of your head, your Angels are close by. Some believe that the crown of the head is loosely correlated to an Angel’s halo, and that the Angels use this sensation to subtly communicate with us humans.

Or perhaps you notice a light touch on your hand. Or someone gently patting your hair when you’re feeling down. The Angels may be stopping by to reassure you that you’re not alone and they’re watching out for you.

Tip: What do you when you notice these sensations? It’s perfectly fine to acknowledge them. Say to the Angels:

Thank you Angels for revealing your presence and showering me with your never-ending love and support.


12. Music

Music is a popular vehicle the Angels use to communicate with us. Why? Humans are musical beings – we love songs. Have you ever heard anyone say they don’t like music? Me neither. That means we would be very open and receptive to messages sent via song. Sometimes a song may merely suggest the Angels’ presence. Other times, the Angels may be sending you a specific message you need to hear in the form of lyrics.

Funny story. I asked Archangel Gabriel to send me a message, a sign, that he was near. For one week straight, I heard Angel of the Morning by Juice Newton every single morning on different radio stations on my way to work. Well played, Archangel Gabriel…message received 😊.


13. Coins

Coins are a super-fun way for the Angels to pop into your life. Have you been asking for financial help? The Angels may place money, especially coins, in your path to let you know that they’re on the job and abundance is on its way. Finding a group of coins that include an “11” is an extra special blessing (think 11 cents, $1.11). The Angel number 11 is considered to be one of the most profound of all the Angel numbers. It’s associated with higher purpose, enlightenment and intuition.

So next time you find coins in the parking lot, pick ‘em up and thank the Angels for working their magic.

14. Unexpected interactions with animals

Animals such as hummingbirds, butterflies and dragonflies are commonly associated with the Angels. If one of these winged beings crosses your path unexpectedly, it could be a sign from the Angels. Each creature conveys a powerful spiritual meaning for your life. Like the white feather, it’s important to keep perspective. If you’re visiting a butterfly preserve, seeing a butterfly doesn’t necessarily denote an Angelic connection. However if a bevy of butterflies creates a unique formation before you, well now we’re on to something. Read more about the spiritual meaning of butterflies.
