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 are seeing them.

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 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 a flower, heart, and other symbol-shaped clouds 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 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 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.

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 the angels and become more in tune with their presence, below are some basic ways for you to receive their signs and messages:

  • Meditation and Prayer: Stay aware and be present in the moment (release any guilt from the past and don’t worry about the future) and focus on your breath.
  • Journal or Write Letters: Express your feelings and desires into words to your angels.  You can keep the letters in a safe place or release each one by burning it.
  • Lighting Candles and Incense: Light candles to banish darkness during prayer or meditation.

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.

    Since 2011, I’ve been seeing the angel number 9 everywhere. Then, in April 2018, I met a Japanese male friend who traveled to my country (Philippines). We spent quality time together for one day and he became very special to me. When he returned to his country, I deleted my line account so now we don’t have contact with each other. Since that moment, I’ve been seeing and hearing things about Japan every day (example: Japan’s country name, flag, friends talking about Japanese people, Japanese food, etc.). Can someone help me understand the meaning of these signs?

  • Refiloe Muriel Motaung on

    I have been seeing angels every day since 2016. I feel blessed, protected, encouraged, and loved by the Lord so much.

  • Cerina on

    This is Cerina. About 5 years ago, I had a vision that was exactly 3 days before an earthquake in Bohol and Cebu City in the Philippines. I saw the moon and the clouds below it formed into a shape of a woman’s eye crying and watching over her children who were in trouble or under a state of calamity. When I looked at the image in the clouds, I got the message that a lot of people were going to be in danger, but I didn’t know where, when, or how the danger would happen. I looked at the image several more times, and I still got the same message: a mother crying so helplessly because of what will happen to her children.

    Then 3 days later, an earthquake struck (October 15, 2013) and 222 were reported dead in Bohol and few in Cebu. Also, just 3 weeks after the quake, Typhoon Haiyan (known as Super Typhoon Yolanda) struck the region. After the natural disaster, I truly believe that the “woman in the sky” was a message of an angel. I always believed in angels and I know they are all around us.

  • Richard James Larson on

    All the angel signs and reasons in this article point to what I have experienced in the past couple of months. I am now in the hospital due to a car accident. Before the accident, I ended up taking care of a guy that had a stroke. His left arm and his whole left side were paralyzed. Coincidentally after the car accident, my left arm is also hindered in the same way he was.

    Every day I see angel signs, especially in the form of nature signs like birds. Before yesterday, I picked up a yellow-breasted finch. The crows are all around me, along with dragonflies. I’ve had two dragonflies land on me; one on my shoulder and the other on my head. The first dragonfly landed on my shoulder before the accident. And the second dragonfly landed on my head after the accident.

    I do hear voices and I know I’m not crazy. When I’m in the shower and I’m singing and dancing with my country music, I sense that the shower curtain is actually dancing with me. All of this is true. I feel that I have done something really good in my life to bring the angels with me. I’m just wondering how did I deserve something so special and unique.

  • Annmarie on

    I keep seeing angel numbers constantly. Also, I have seen a flash of white light which I believe was an angel. Now, I keep seeing the minutes on the clock change. As I look, it will immediately change in front of me. This happens regularly and I believe this is another angel sign.
