[as a follow up to OWLs most popular article to date, “Angel Signs: 5 Unexpected Ways Angels Communicate With Us”, Gina is giving you more insight into the world of Angel communication.]
Angels are our guardians and guides. They are divine spiritual beings that work with humanity to help us in this lifetime. They are messengers of God and here to help bring about peace on Earth (which is God’s will), one person at a time.
Guardian angels are unique to each person, we each have our own team. For some people this may be one angel, for others it may be many; and you can always as for more if you feel the need. The Angels respect your free will, they won’t directly interfere in your life unless asked or if your life is in danger before your time. However, the Angels do guide us in subtle ways all the time, nudging us toward our highest good and life purpose. They gently lead us towards love and peace and they send us symbols or signs to reassure us. These symbols are ways of letting us know they are here or, often time, ways to encourage us in the direction of our own intuitive instincts. You can ask for a sign from your angels any time you need reassurance or confirmation of your gut feelings, but they will send them regardless. The more open you are to communicating, the more symbols you will perceive; it is a believe/receive relationship.
If you are wondering about whether or not you are receiving symbols from your angels, one way to determine it is to have faith and trust your intuition. These symbols are frequently custom made for the recipient, so only you may recognize their significance. If you feel strongly in your heart that something is a sign from your angels, than it indeed is. There are some common symbols many will experience, but may not realize because they can be somewhat unusual. Here are 5 unexpected symbols from the angels:
1. PENNIES (AND OTHER STUFF) FROM HEAVEN:
Find a penny, pick it up and all day long you’ll have good luck! Found coins are one way that angels commonly send us signs. Some other found objects the angelic realm uses are white feathers or shapes like hearts or angels figures. Shapes can be seen in puddles, clouds, stones or any random place you look. These symbols are typically like a hello from a dear friend, letting you know the angels are with you and here to help you. If you see this kind of sign, it can often be a reminder to ASK for help from your guardian angels, instead of struggling or stressing about a decision, idea or situation.
Nature is very spiritual, so it’s no surprise the angels work with the natural world to communicate with humanity; we are part of nature after all. Some common signs from nature include butterflies, rainbows and birds and animals. Bird and animal symbolism is very interesting because each visitor that repetitively crosses your path has a different message. Hawks, for instance, are a sign to follow your intuition. There are many articles and books you can find about these kinds of symbols to help you understand specifically what your Angels and their animal friends want you to know (try a Google search on animal symbols).
Music is a universal language. The Angels use songs and music to convey messages in a couple of different ways. Lyrics might reaffirm your intuitive feelings or a song might lift your spirits and reassure you that all will be well. Sometimes, a song might be a representation of your guardian angel’s presence; I have such a song and always hear it when I need it most (even though it is an old song and not particularly popular on the radio any longer).
4. ADVERTISING AND SOCIAL MEDIA:
Billboards, commercials, Facebook posts, blog articles, emails etc… The Angels love using technology related methods to get our attention and provide us with needed information. Have you ever been focused on a pending decision and than seen a television commercial that helps you make your choice? Or maybe come across a random email about the very same topic on which you are deciding? This synchronicity is divinely orchestrated. I find it helpful to just ask the Angels to send me the information and resources I need when I’m pondering a choice; in fact it’s exactly how I recently planned our upcoming summer family vacation!
5. SIGHTS, SOUNDS AND SMELLS:
The Angels understand the skeptical nature of human beings and our “seeing is believing” philosophies. Since we often question our 6th sense, they send us signs perceptible through other senses like sights, sounds and smells. Seeing Angel shapes, sparks of light and flickering lamps are all signs from Angels. Hearing ringing in your ear, like a pleasant frequency, often occurs as confirmation of your intuition. The scent of roses or flowers is a sign your Angels are near, to help and reassure you in a time of need or to cheer you on. These signs are not coincidence or your imagination, they are forms of divine communication.
There are many books about angel communication that offer further details and information about angels, I recommend those by Doreen Virtue. Having an Intuitive Angel Reading is also an excellent way to better understand the messages, signs and symbols from your Angels; often confirming what you already know. Becoming more open to these symbols and signs will create more peace in your life; every time you experience one you will feel the loving presence of your angels and will begin increasing your angel awareness.
