13 Most Common Angel Signs

Angels communicate with you in various ways, in most cases, through signs and symbols. Whenever you see these angel signs, the message is clear: your guardian angel is close by, watching over you, 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 have significant messages that help you make better choices in life.

2nd Angel Sign: Feathers
Finding feathers in places where they are not commonly found is a sign that your angel is giving you encouragement to keep going on your path.

3rd Angel Sign: Pennies and Other Coins
Finding pennies, dimes, or other shiny coins is an angel’s way of telling you that you have divine support. The Universe is working behind the scenes to bring you what you need, not what you want.

4th Angel Sign: Rainbows
Seeing rainbows without the presence of rain is a clear angel sign that everything will work out fine. Remember to keep your thoughts positive and the Universe will work itself out for your highest benefit.

5th Angel Sign: Cloud Shapes
Seeing an angel, face, flower, heart, and other symbol-shaped clouds in the sky are signs from your angel to let you know that you're not alone in your journey.  Your guardian angel is by your side waiting for you to ask for help.

6th Angel Sign: Chills or Feelings of Being Touched
Experiencing touch or a tingling sensation down your spine or other parts of your body is a sign indicating truth, especially when you suddenly see or hear something.  Your angel is letting you know that you are in the presence of divine wisdom.

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

8th Angel Sign: Colored Orbs or Sparkles of Light
Seeing orbs, flashes, or sparkles of colored light is a sign that you are becoming more aware of your human experience on earth. This angel sign is letting you know that you're ascending to a higher vibrational level of existence where you can clearly see and understand things that you were not able to see and understand before.

In matters of the heart, if you are seeing green sparkles, it 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.

9th Angel Sign: Epiphany or Sudden Revelation
Having an epiphany or sudden brilliant idea is a sign from your angel sending information to you in order to help you with a solution.  You simply have this "sense of knowing" of what you’re meant to do next.  

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's a sign that important coded information is being sent to you, and often times, this information is a divine message that you can use to help you with a life situation when you need it most.  Most importantly, when you hear the ringing, use your intuition to sense what kind of message is being presented to you.  Trust that deep down at the core of your soul, you know that you're safe and the information will be revealed at the right time just for you.

11th Angel Sign: Hearing Music or Songs
Hearing music or songs unexpectedly is 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, if you've been thinking about a certain person or issue, the song lyrics can provide more information to help you deal with a personal situation. In the end, it's best to listen to your heart and trust.

12th Angel Sign: Birds, Butterflies, Dragonflies, and Other Animals
Seeing a hummingbird, butterfly, dragonfly, or another animal that crosses your path unexpectedly is 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 or other divine sign in your dream is a true blessing from your angel. 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:

  • Prayer and Meditation: Remember this: When you pray, you are talking to God, and when you meditate, you hear His answers. In meditation, be present in the moment (don't replay the past and don’t worry about the future). When you focus on your breath as you inhale and exhale, trust that the answers will come at the right time – just for you.
  • Journal or Write Letters: Express your feelings and desires into words to the Creator and your angels.  You can keep the letters in a safe place or release each one by burning it. By expressing your feelings, you are communicating your desires to your spiritual divine team. Imagine and have faith that you will receive the incredible.
  • Lighting 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. Yes, this is a reminder that you are ONE.

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 being presently quiet and tuning in to the angel signs and messages by paying attention to everything that happens around you. There are clues everywhere on your journey.  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.

    Over the last few months, I have been emotionally and mentally in distress over financial troubles and going through heartbreaks from current to past experiences. I have always had faith, but with everything I have been going through, and everyday feeling my own self-pity and failures piling up more than I could bear, my faith has been tested hard as stone.

    I have been feeling and seeing all of these signs, and every day, the ringing in my ears increases louder. I know for sure that the Word of God is true, and self-love was a huge issue of mine since I was a child. God has never left my side, and He has sent me angels to help me through.

    I now know that I’ve never been unloved and that I am never alone. I am grateful beyond any words of belief. I have suffered for far too long and struggled with addiction and depression for many years. My stress levels were unbearable to the point that it caused me to physically feel the damage I was causing myself and others. I decided to wholeheartedly pray and open up the book of God’s Word again after years of denying myself of His Word. I’ll never doubt my Lord again.

    My stress has diminished and addiction has disappeared out of nowhere. I am beginning to love myself again, and I cannot seem to stop praying and giving thanks for the trials and suffering I have been going through. I’ve never felt better. I don’t feel lonely anymore even when I am not around anyone or in any relationships.

    I believe that God’s Word is the only truth. With God, all things are possible. I really believe that now with all my heart and soul. This article is huge. A true awakening. Embrace it and feel the glory and grace and blessings to come on your path in life. God bless everyone.

    We had the most unusual encounter with a black and white butterfly. My husband and I went for a walk and met up with this particular black and white butterfly 3 times during our walk. The last time it showed up on our walk, the butterfly was waiting on the path for us.

    On the next day, my husband and I went back for a walk in the same place. We were wondering what the chances were of seeing this beautiful creature again. When our walk was almost finished, the same black and white butterfly mysteriously drops in the path in front of us.

    I have been going through depression. And I have been praying and asking God to take away all the hurts, the pain, the shame, and the guilt so that I can embrace and enjoy life again. Is this butterfly an angel? It really gave us the cold shivers, and we never experienced anything like this before. I feel connected to this butterfly, and I feel like I want to go back and seek it out. It’s amazing.

    I see so many signs such as finding pennies, nickels, and dimes. But in the last two days, I saw unusual white birds flying in the sky, a feather sticking from the ground, red-bellied birds, and rainbows. I pray for God’s help daily, so I hope this repeated cycle (debt, lack, fear, poverty, anxiety, worry) that I have been experiencing for years has come to an end and is replaced with peace, prosperity, and abundance, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

    In early June 2018, I began waking up at 4:44 in the morning. Initially, it was happening once a week, next twice a week, and then three times a week. Afterward, 444 started showing up on receipts and on buildings that I never noticed before. One time, I received a phone call, and when I picked up my phone, the time was 4:44. It seemed as if every time I looked at the clock, it was 4:44. I also saw 12:12 and other repeated double digits or triple digits that matched each other. These number occurrences went on for months.

    In July, my mother was diagnosed with cancer. At this time, she was 86 years old. She had already been undergoing dialysis for the past five years and had responded well to it. We had already lost our father in 1995 and a 19 -year-old sister in 1983. Mom was the center of our universe.

    It didn’t take long for me to realize that heaven was trying to tell me something. I was so afraid for my mother. For years, I had prayed to God to be gentle with her when her time came. I begged him for gentility. My mother was a good woman, a good mother, God-fearing, and God-loving.

    Every time I saw 444, I stopped what I was doing. I made the sign of the cross and prayed. My mother believed deeply in angels, and she surrounded herself with them. Now, these angels were warning me.

    On August 18, 2018, my mother passed away due to a heart attack on the operating table. I had begged God to be gentle and He truly was. I was devastated at the loss of my mother — I couldn’t breathe. I found myself daily sitting beside her grave, so broken.

    A couple of days after her death, I woke up at 4:44, I made the sign of the cross, and then I saw it. It was a vision of my entire family that had passed. There must have been 100 people or more. Generations of family. I saw my favorite aunt, my sister, my dad, my nephew, and my mom. My mom was standing at the front and facing them, and they were all clapping and smiling at her. Mom, too, was clapping and smiling back at them. They were celebrating her arrival to heaven.

    The following spring, I went to get flowers for the graves. I decided to change the colors of the flowers and hoped that mom would approve. As I prayed, there was a digital clock on the counter, and I noticed the time was 4:44. That was mom’s approval.

    Recently, my little dog, Cedrick, became ill. He was dying. I kept showing him my mom’s picture and telling him to look for her, and my mom would come and get him. He died 14 days ago. On the third day after his death, I woke up at 4:44, and that moment came with another vision of my little Cedrick running towards my mom. He was happy, healthy, and his ears were flapping in the wind as he ran towards her. She was smiling and calling for him. She was telling me she had him!

    This experience only reaffirms my belief in heaven, in God, and most of all — the fact that we are surrounded by our angels, and they will be there for us whenever we need them. I look forward to the day I get to be with my family again.

    I was 8 years old riding my bicycle on a road. I got hit from behind by a car going 55 miles-per-hour. I flew over 150 feet in the air and landed on the paved road. I don’t remember anything else until I was in the hospital. I remember seeing a glowing white light radiating from a tall man standing over me. He told me it’s not my time. That’s all I can remember from that incident. I shattered my ankle and had 34 stitches on the back of my skull.
