10 Reasons Why You Are Seeing Angel Signs – The Meaning of Angel Signs

Did you receive a sign from an angel, or did you feel touched by an angel? Trust it is a blessing to receive an angel sign in your time of need or in response to your prayer. To give you clarity in your life journey, you were guided here to uncover the meaning of these angel signs and to understand how they are helping you on your path at this time.

Many people around the world are seeing angel signs, especially during crucial moments of their lives. This is something that may have happened to you too, but do you know the reasons why you are seeing angel signs?

Divine signs can appear before, during, or after significant events in your life, especially when a loved one has passed away. A deceased loved one can become your spirit guide, and along with angels, they can gift you with signs to bring hope and comfort when you feel alone and disconnected, or when you need encouragement. For this reason, know that when you see a divine sign, you are being helped and assisted by spiritual beings, like spirit guides and angels, from higher realms.

These high vibrational beings are always by your side and are here to help you fulfill your life mission on earth. Although we may not see them, they communicate with us all the time through signs and symbols. All we have to do is pay attention to these angel signs and understand the meaning of their angelic messages.

They guide you safely on your path by sending you clues. Specifically, they do this by communicating through signs and symbols like repeating numbers, feathers, coins, rainbows, clouds, tingling sensations, smells, orbs of light, epiphanies, animals, plants, ringing in the ears, song lyrics, and dreams. All you have to do is pay attention to these signs and understand the meaning of their angelic messages.

In this article, the focus will be on angels. Unlike spirit guides, angels never lived a human life. Angels are beautiful celestial beings that are specifically created by God to give you as gifts. They are messengers sent to you by the Divine Creator to help you in all aspects of your life.  Keep in mind that there are many different signs from angels, and it's important to access your intuition and find out what the divine signs mean to you. 

Remember, you have all the wisdom within you so it's safe to trust your feelings. To help guide you, here is a list of meanings for the 13 most common angel signs that might be appearing in your life and the 10 spiritual reasons why you keep seeing them.

13 Most Common Angel Signs

Angels communicate with us in very different ways, in most cases, through signs and symbols. Whenever you see these angel signs, the message is clear: your guardian angels are close by, aiding and assisting you. The sign is to give you the reassurance that you're exactly where you need to be as your life is unfolding perfectly according to the master plan of the Universe.  The most common angel signs are:

1st Angel Sign: Repetitive Numbers
Seeing repetitive number patterns like 11:11 and 444 are divine signs that an angel is trying to communicate with you. These repeating numbers are clear signs that easily capture your attention to help you slow down and think about making wiser choices that truly bring you deep peace, happiness, and a feeling of fulfillment in your life.

2nd Angel Sign: Feathers
Finding feathers, especially large ones, in places where they are not commonly found can be a sign that your angel is giving you encouragement to keep going on your path because you are certainly headed in the right direction! Just remember to pace yourself one day at a time, and trust that your path will be revealed in more detail to you after each step you take.

3rd Angel Sign: Pennies and Other Coins
Finding pennies, dimes, or other shiny coins in unexpected places can be an angel’s way of telling you that you have divine support in building an abundant life that is truly meaningful to you. Along with the Great Creator, angels are working behind the scenes to coordinate everything around you so you can continue creating the life that you truly desire. And deep down, you have a complete understanding that everything is working out in perfect time for you.

The message is to stay positive with your dreams by transforming your ideas into the physical life that you are living. Simply put, every coin you find is a sign to make an investment in your life by taking action in the direction of your truest desires.

4th Angel Sign: Rainbows
Seeing rainbows without the presence of rain can be a clear angel sign that everything will work out fine. Remember to keep your thoughts positive and the Universe will work itself out to help everyone involved in a certain situation.

In the end, you remember that your individual success contributes to mankind's overall success. With this knowledge, you understand that life is constantly changing and progressing with new ideas and developments, and every person living in this moment is learning, evolving, and moving together to a much better world for all.

5th Angel Sign: Cloud Shapes
Seeing cloud shapes of an angel, face, flower, heart, or other symbols in the sky can be signs from your angel to remind you that you're never alone in your journey. You remember that God is available to everyone and you always have the help of the Creator when you ask for help. You remember that prayer is important because it opens the channel to God. And when you ask for help, it is given.

Whether you are asking for help in your spiritual life or you need clarity in any part of your physical life, all you have to do is ask and have total faith that the prayer has already been answered. Your prayer is on the spiritual plane of the Divine Creator, and now you are waiting for it to manifest back down to earth in your physical reality. Importantly, you remember that your results will be quicker when you have deep faith.

6th Angel Sign: Chills or Feelings of Being Touched
Experiencing an angel's touch or feeling a tingling sensation down your spine or other parts of your body can be a sign indicating truth, especially when you see, read, or hear something that resonates with your soul.  It can be your angel's way of letting you know that you are in the presence of spiritual truth.

One spiritual truth that you start to remember is that you were created from the spiritual DNA of the Creator, and thus, you are containing a part of the Creator within you. With this reminder, you understand that you are never separate and alone, and your guardian angel is here to help guide you on your path in discovering more of who you truly are and your place in this amazing world that you have chosen to live in. Remember always, you are a piece of the Universe, and together as one, we are collectively the whole Universe.

7th Angel Sign: Smells or Scents
Smelling pleasant aromas, especially from plants or flowers, that randomly come out of nowhere, can be a sign that one of God's army of angels is giving you peace and comfort while you're going through a time of soul growth.

Keep in mind, certain smells can also trigger a specific memory of a certain person or significant event in your life that serves as a special moment in your own healing journey. The healing journey is about remembering how you felt at the beginning of the journey and becoming proud of your progress along the way. 

8th Angel Sign: Colored Spirals, Auras, Orbs, or Sparkles of Light
Seeing giant spirals, auras, orbs, flashes of light, or sparkles of colored light can be a sign that you're surrounded by angels, and they can take the energetic form of "light" to comfort you. Although orbs and various lights can also represent other spirits, the general view is that you are being gifted to clearly see and understand things that you were not able to see and understand before. You are becoming more aware of your human experience on earth, and you're ascending to a higher vibrational level of existence where you see "magic" unfold in your life journey.

In matters of the heart, if you are seeing green orbs or sparkles, that source of light can be a sign of harmony and restoration from Archangel Raphael who is the angel of healing. Always have faith that you are protected and safe. Just trust that your guardian angel is always with you, and it is always working with other angels and spirits to guide you with signs that are comforting to you.

9th Angel Sign: Epiphany or Sudden Revelation
Having an epiphany or sudden brilliant idea comes from the spiritual force of the Divine Creator when you are in the flow of creating and when you are open to receiving answers. Because angels are God's messengers, they can also help deliver these epiphanies or ideas to you in various creative and divine ways to help you with a solution. In the end, you simply have this "sense of knowing" of what you’re meant to do next, and you feel confident in the direction of your conscious choices as you build your life and move it forward with mankind and the evolving world.

10th Angel Sign: Ringing in the Ears
Hearing a random high-pitch ringing sound in one or both of your ears for a brief moment is a way for celestial beings to communicate with you.  It can be a sign that important coded information is being sent to you, and oftentimes, this information is a divine message that you can use later to help you with a life situation. Importantly, when you hear the ringing, use your intuition to sense what kind of message is being presented to you and trust that more information will be revealed at the right time, just for you.

11th Angel Sign: Hearing Music or Songs
Hearing music or songs play unexpectedly can be a sign from your angel sending information to you in order to help you with a solution or give you a message about a certain person or situation.  For this reason, it's important for you to pay attention to the words or lyrics of the music that you hear so you can understand the message being presented.  By way of example, song lyrics that randomly appear in your daily routine can provide clues to guide you in making the right decisions for you about a certain issue. In the end, it's best to be aware of your present moment so you can consciously recognize all the clues and signs that angels send to you.

12th Angel Sign: Birds, Butterflies, Dragonflies, and Other Animals
Seeing a hummingbird, butterfly, dragonfly, or another animal that crosses your path unexpectedly can be an angel sign.  Each wildlife creature has a powerful message (or lesson) for you in your life journey.

For instance, a hummingbird is always searching for sweet nectar deep within flowers, and flowers love the hummingbird because it draws out the nectar from the flower it pollinates. For this reason, the hummingbird is associated with the healing properties of flowers. With this in mind, if you've been thinking about changing careers and a hummingbird suddenly shows up in your life, the overall spiritual message for you is to explore a healing career with flowers and herbs.  The hummingbird teaches you to detect and use certain plants for medicinal uses.

So remember this, whatever animal shows up in your life, you are to explore the hidden message of the animal's symbolism to help guide you on your path.

13th Angel Sign: Seeing Angels or Other Divine Signs in a Dream
Remembering that you saw a celestial being, silhouette, or other divine shape or sign in your dream is a true blessing. It's a strong spiritual message to provide you comfort and peace when you're in need of strength during times of distress, or if you're about to transition from this life to the next.  

Overall, the key thing to remember is that angels are around you all the time, and they make their presence felt whenever you need them the most for support and guidance.

10 Reasons Why You're Seeing Angel Signs

1st Reason: You Are Spiritually Awakening 
One clear reason why you are seeing angel signs is that you’re awakening and becoming more conscious of yourself and your journey. When this happens, your frequency raises and you are able to tune in to higher dimensional beings for information that will help you on your path. For this reason, your guardian angel wants to tell you that this is a significant time for you to become your true self and be honest with what you want to leave behind as your legacy on earth.

2nd Reason: You Have Complete Divine Support 
The reason for seeing angel signs is that you need guidance and your angel is letting you know that you have divine support. The angel message is that you are always assisted throughout your journey. You just need to ask for help and have faith that what you need will come in unexpected ways.

3rd Reason: Your Journey is Unfolding Perfectly
When you’re in disbelief about your life path or question whether you’ve made the right decision, seeing angel signs is a clear indicator that you need to trust how your life unfolds. The angel signs serve as reminders of encouragement for you to persevere and push yourself to become the best version you can be.

4th Reason: You're Part of Something Greater 
Another reason why you’re seeing angel signs is that you have a false belief that you’re completely alone and helpless. Your angel wants to tell you that you're not separate.  In truth, you are a part of the Universe and collectively, we all make up the whole Universe. As a thread, you intertwine with other threads, and in the big picture, we work together and form life's tapestry.  For this reason, we're all connected as One.

5th Reason: You're Being Watched Over and Protected
Your guardian angel is here to help and protect you.  You will experience their sign as a flash of inspiration or a sudden vision whenever you need help in a situation.  The information will come to you naturally at the right time when you need it most.

6th Reason: You're Beginning to Remember Who You Truly Are 
Seeing angel signs is a clear indicator that you need to remember the divine nature of your being.  You've always carried the spark of the Creator's flame within your heart and now it's time to turn that spark into a flame. So when you receive an angel sign, it's time to become the light instead of searching for it.  Always remember: You are the light.

7th Reason: You're Ready for Healing 
Your guardian angel is always sending signs to help guide you on your journey. You'll know when it's time to change paths when you feel disconnected in life.  So whenever you need help, you will see angel signs that point to a new direction.  Keep in mind, your old wounds often need to heal before you take another path.  In this sense, trust yourself a little bit more and know that your experiences on earth were planned to help you learn and grow into your higher self.  Remember this: Everything is happening for you and not against you!

8th Reason: You're in Sync with Your Higher Self 
Synchronicity is a clear sign that you're in the right place at the right time and angels are sending signs to capture your attention at that particular moment.  When you see repetitive angel number signs, know that it's not a coincidence.  Seeing 11:11, 3:33, 4:44, or other repeating numbers is an indicator that you are in tune with your authentic self and the number signs serve as guideposts to help you make decisions along your journey. So pay attention to the numbers that appear on your path and remember to ask your guardian angel for help whenever you need clarity.

9th Reason:  Your Angel is Always With You 
When you're not living in the present moment, it's not easy to consciously tune in to your guardian angel's messages. But when you are living in "the now" and being aware of everything around you in that exact moment, it will be easier for you to notice the clues and signs and hear the angelic messages. For this reason, when you receive a divine sign, trust that your angel is with you and trying to get your attention.

10th Reason: You Are Love
Whenever you are sensing your guardian angel's presence around you, trust that your angel is delivering a message of unconditional love to you.  The angel signs you see are to help you remember that you are truly and completely loved.  Because you are a perfect expression of the Divine Creation, the Divine is always inside of you, and for this reason, you always resonate with truth.  Remember, you are created on something good and everlasting, something pure and true – and this defines your very essence.  You are love.

What Should You Do Next When You See an Angel Sign?

Have an attitude of gratitude for your guardian angel's love and assistance when you receive a sign. If you feel unsure, ask your guardian angel for clear signs and messages so it's easy for you to understand.  You can ask in silence or out loud and be patient as the answer you seek will be revealed to you at the right time. To help you develop your relationship with angels and the Creator and to become more in tune with their presence, below are some basic ways for you to receive their signs and messages:

  • Pray and Meditate: Remember this: When you pray, you are talking to God, and when you meditate, you hear His answers. In meditation, you realize that when you focus on your breath as you inhale divine energy (peace) into your body, you trigger an action that allows peace to push out all of your worries from your body. And in this process, you are enveloped in peace in order to hear the answers you seek. Listen with your heart.
  • Journal or Write Letters: Express your feelings and desires into words to the Creator and your angels.  You can keep your written words in a safe place or "mail" them to the universe by burning them. By expressing your feelings, you are communicating your desires to your spiritual divine team. Imagine and have faith that you will receive the answers you seek. Express your soul.
  • Light Candles: Light candles to physically remind you that the Divine Light is already within you. You don't have to seek the light, because you are the light. God is within you, and you are within God. Because you are one with God, lighting a candle is a reminder of your oneness. Just like the Creator, shine your light wherever you go and be the guide for peace.

Bear in mind that your guardian angel was assigned to you at the time of your birth and your angel is here with you now – right now. It's just a matter of tuning in to their messages by paying attention to everything that happens around you. Whenever you are seeing angel signs, rest assured that they are divine messages of love and light to help guide you on your path safely.

Remember, you’re never alone. Although there are certain situations where angels might not be able to answer your specific requests because they have something better in store for you, trust that the angels are always with you and are constantly looking for ways to help you.  

All you have to do is ask.

    I saw the numbers 01 20 in the clouds today on the way home from work. The numbers do have meaning to me, but I just need to see what it means. I’m curious!

    I’ve recently started doing tarot cards too, and I’m wondering if it’s linked.

    Love to you all.

    I saw an angel in the sky tonight as I was sitting in my car at my church parking lot. I looked up, and there was a large angel with the wings spread wide open and face looking down on me.

    I drove around the parking lot to get a good look, and then I took a few pictures to show my Pastor and another member when they pulled up to the Church. It was so amazing, and I’m very blessed to have encountered this which they didn’t see.

    All I could say is thank you, Jesus, for allowing your angel to watch over me and my church.

  • Corey on | Krebs, Oklahoma, United States

    Honestly, there is truly too much to explain, so I’ll start with this one for now.

    I was 12 years old, and my dad had just passed away. My mom was doing drugs to ease the pain, and I was the middle child of 5. We all had it rough, but I just happen to be a little different in ways I didn’t even comprehend at the time.

    At the time, I was always trying to be the “cool kid” to “fit in.” One day, my older brother and I were in our mom’s room while she was away doing her own thing. My cousin, who was around 20 years old, was there and he had asked me if I wanted to hit this little metal pipe.

    I asked, “What is it?”

    He responded, “K2.”

    For some reason, I didn’t even hesitate, and I wasn’t aware of the action I was truly about to commit. My brother told me not to do it, but I didn’t listen to him.

    I took a hit, and instantly a high hit me as I exhaled the smoke. I began to start laughing uncontrollably when all of a sudden I have the thought, “I gotta stop laughing, or mom will know.” Then, my smiling face changed to a straight face, as I fell to the floor and dropped my bowl of spaghetti.

    I didn’t know I passed out. I woke up on a brick road while looking at my feet. Surprisingly, I was not confused or scared in the least bit. I began to take a few steps as I looked up at the endless beautiful field of tall green grass surrounding the brick road I was on. I looked at the sky to see the sun with the word “God” written on it in black computer-looking letters. There were rays of light radiating around the letters. I began to hear “God, God, God” at least 10 times, and oddly enough, it was a woman’s voice.

    After about 10 seconds of being stunned, I woke up on the floor with the immense feeling of déjà vu while watching my brother walk into the room. At this point, I was cautiously aware of the situation. My cousin asked me if I was okay. I don’t know why, but I shook my head to answer yes.

    Then, I passed out again. This time, I was in the “void,” an extremely dark place that looked as if there was a light faded onto the other side of it. It was so quiet that the sound of silence pierced my ears and caused me to stay aware of what was happening. It was peaceful but chaotic at the same time, and everything was everything, as in all things were connected as one.

    I woke back up, but this time, I had been moved to my mom’s bed by my brother who was laying next to me. I couldn’t see myself, but I wasn’t scared or worried in the least bit, oddly. My brother asked me if I was okay, and I flipped him off because I didn’t want him worrying.

    Then, I passed out for the last time. I was sitting in space surrounded by millions of stars. From my vision, it seemed as if I was looking through an old-fashioned box TV. Suddenly, a screen popped up, and I watched millions of blue hands reaching out from behind this screen, which was showing me a video of what I believe was me. I was confused. I was too focused on the blue hands reaching and groaning as they tried grabbing me effortlessly.

    About 10 minutes go by, and I suddenly wake up. I was completely fine with what just happened by saying, “Welp, I’m never doing that again.”

    Then, I walked outside to my front porch, and I was offered to smoke some weed. I took a hit, and I saw the blue hands again while I was “awake” sitting on my couch and feeling like a zombie. I woke up the next morning, and I haven’t felt “normal” since then.

    No one believed that my head was completely messed up. It was a lonely few years, and I was blind to the fact that God was trying to help me realize something. I’m 19 now, and God and I are best friends. He has taught me more things than I can count. God shows me that He is here, and He hasn’t forgotten about us.

    God bless everyone. I hope everyone gets to feel the grace of God’s love as it will show you so much. It just takes faith, and He will reveal Himself. Stay safe. ❤️‍🔥

  • Amanda Nakano on | Lawrenceville, Georgia, United States

    I have seen 3 angels in the last 6-7 years. My first encounter with an angel will always top the other 2 experiences that came after.

    I was sitting in my garage with the doors closed. Then, the power in the garage went out, and I stood up to walk into the house. Before I could walk towards the door, I saw someone I didn’t recognize standing in front of me. My first thought was a ghost.

    While still shocked at what I’m looking at, I began to look at him all around and take every inch in. He was dressed in a white robe. When I took a better look at his face, I noticed something over his shoulders. Yes, they were wings!

    Still, I was shocked at what I was experiencing. When I looked him over 1 more time to see him again, he opened up his wings, and suddenly, I realized I was in his wings. In that very moment, I felt God’s holy love. Everything you can ever imagine or want heaven to feel like, I felt.

    I have never felt anything remotely like that in my life. It was pure and strong unconditional love. Serenity and peace. I would describe it like being on Cloud 9, but so much greater and powerful than that.

    Believe in them, because angels are real and God is too. Since that day, I always know I’m ok, and it will all be ok no matter what it is. It will work out with the help of God and my angels.

  • Simon A. on | Nyekonakpoe, Lome, Togo

    In my teenage years between 13 and 15, I secretly joined my friends at the beach for swimming at noon. In the process of swimming, I was enveloped by tidal waves. I heard my friends shouting, “Simon, Simon, Simon, come back!”

    I then remembered vanishing to an unknown destination. Later, I heard another voice calling my name again and again, and then a strong wave pushed me to the shore.

    Before my sight, a handsome man in a white robe was standing and watching me. Fear took hold of me and I ran. I was feeling the presence of the man while running away.

    While reaching the house, I saw a lot of people gathered at the compound. Since I was at the beach at noontime, I guess I was in the waves for about 3 hours when I returned home.

    I was embraced with many questions. During all of this, my mother was crying. Angels help me in many ways.
