Have you ever felt like you were in the presence of angels?
It’s very possible that you were and you didn’t even know it. Angelic guidance can be very overt including channeled messages, dreams and direct insight. It can also come more subtly.
Angels are constantly drawing our attention towards signs and they will leave you with clues that will place you in the right direction.
Sometimes, these signs may seem small at first, but can increase in frequency when they are focused on, acknowledged and appreciated. If you want to start noticing the presence or guidance of angels, one of the best things you can do is increase your present moment awareness of them. You can only do this by knowing some of the common signs to look out for.
Here are seven common ways angels bring you guidance and messages.
1. Through Voices
Not everyone “hears” angelic voices as an audible sound. Many people receive divine messages through nonverbal means such as visions or feelings, but there are some who do. Have you ever received a message in your mind, or heard a voice whispered to you that seems to appear out of thin air, you may be receiving guidance from angels. Hearing the guidance of your angels is a wonderful sign of their presence, and often occurs when you are in need of comfort, reassurance or angelic guidance. If you hear a faint voice and wonder what it said, ask the angels to repeat their message. They want to deliver clear and understandable guidance.
2. Through People
Another way angels bring us guidance is through people messengers. Angels are sent to us by God to deliver messages of encouragement and inspiration. They will use people in your life, or sometimes complete strangers to tell you exactly what you need to hear in that very moment.
They often show us when you’re contemplating an issue or decision and need someone to guide you through it.
Sometimes, a random person you meet will mention something that you desperately needed to hear or know, that you wouldn’t have otherwise heard had you not come across their path. If you are feeling divinely guided by someone, angels may be reaching out to you.
3. Through Songs
Angels often communicate through music. Music is a universal language and they use song to convey messages in various ways. This is often communicated through reoccurring songs. You may hear the same song playing on the radio or your favorite music app and wonder why. This may be an angel trying to communicate with you, particularly if the songs have a similar theme. Lyrics might reaffirm your intuitive feelings or a song might lift your spirits and reassure you that all will be well. It’s important that you pay attention to this guidance through music.
4. Through Numbers
Another way angels will attempt to get your attention and guide you is through numbers. Some people call them Angel Numbers. You may be sitting behind a car with 333 on the license plate, or you seem to look at the clock every day at 11:11 exactly. These numbers have specific meanings for you. If you are wondering what the point of seeing these numbers over and over again, think of the signs they leave us as an endless possibility for growth and transformation. What is important is for us to not only look for signs from the angels, but also be present and aware.
5. Through Temperature Changes
When you’re in the presence of angels, you may feel your body temperature suddenly changing. You may get the chills, feel particularly cold or feel a tingle or pressure in your head or the back of your neck. This change may also come in the form of a warm glowing light around you. This typically isn’t an uncomfortable feeling either. In that moment, it will feel normal. There is no need to be afraid when this happens. This experience is a validation that angels are with you.
6. Through Sights, Sounds and Smells
Have you ever noticed a particular smell, shape or sound and have been unable to identify the source? This may show up in the form a lovely sweet scent or a ringing in your ear. Because we often question our 6th sense, they send us messages perceptible through various sights, sounds and smells. Seeing angel shapes in the clouds, sparks of lights and flickering lamps are also signs that angels are near. This often occurs as confirmation of your intuition. The scents of roses or flowers are often a sign that angels are around to help calm you in a particular time of need. If you notice a rainbow, this is also a sign that your angels are bringing encouragement and validation from heaven.
7. Through Light
Has a bright star in the sky ever caught your attention, light shimmering off an object in an unusual way or a bright orb hovering near? These are all signs that angels are around you. Because angels are beings of light, another way they make their presence known is through orbs, unexplained shimmers of light, or flashes of color. If you close your eyes and you still see the light, it’s highly probably that an angel is with you. Stop and breathe for a moment and allow their angelic presence to bring you healing and uplift you.
Once you begin to tune into the signs from angels, and practice present moment awareness, you will become more conscious of your angels, and the guidance and assistance they have for you.
If you notice any of these signs, be aware of the message they may be trying to send you.
