15 Angel Signs and how to spot them
White feathers Perhaps one of the most well-known signs you’ve been visited by an Angel, these magical blessings are something many of us keep an eye out for and treasure once we discover. Often referred to as ‘calling cards,’ they’re left as welcome reminders that Angels are there for us if we need them and continually watching over us each day. Pennies Celestial beings will often leave coins for those they are watching over in fact, it’s thought that’s where the expression ‘pennies from heaven’ originally came from!Left to console and reassure those who find them generally when they’re feeling a little blue or under the weather they’re said to be tossed by angels to make smiles out of frowns. Rainbows If you’re thinking about Angels and a rainbow suddenly catches your attention, it’s likely to be one of these celestial beings confirming their presence to you even more spectacular when there’s been no rain! Scents Sometimes those we’ve lost will remind us of their presence by surrounding us with a particular fragrance or smell that makes us think of them, so take note of any familiar aromas that waft your way you never know, they might just be a sign from a deceased loved one! Angels also like to make their appearances known through the power of smell and will often leave floral trails in the areas they have visited. Dreams Angels and deceased loved ones will also often come to us in while we sleep as this tends to be the time we’re most relaxed and receptive. Sparkles of light Depending on their colour, these messages will usually be sent by the angel whose help you need most at the time if you’ve been going through a hard time and keep seeing green sparkles every where you go, it could be a sign from Archangel Raphael the Angel synonymous with healing letting you know he’s there to help you. A Voice Seemingly coming out of nowhere, this is one of the most obvious signs an Angel’s come to visit you and will either literally tell you it’s there for you out loud, or reassure you perhaps when you are feeling frightened or uncertain through a little whisper that everything is going to be OK. Music and television Hearing a song or lyric on the radio using words that help, reassure or confirm something for you is never a coincidence, but the work of angels attempting to clarify or ease a situation for you. Every time they do, you can be sure it’s a message from an Angel. Telephone calls If you suddenly receive a call from someone you really need support from at the exact moment you most need them, you can be sure an Angel’s intervened somewhere along the way, either making them think of you at just the right time or giving them the clarity and wisdom to offer you the advice you need. Angels will also send their messages to you in a number of different ways so make sure you look out for any recurring slogans on billboards, shop names or roads that seem to strike a chord with you. Angel shapes Never underestimate how clever angels can be; they are all around us and can physically appear in the form of an outline or shape in almost anything, from the clouds in the sky to the bubbles in your bath!
O HOLY ANGEL, whom God, by the effect of His goodness and His tender regard for my welfare, has charged with the care of my conduct, and who assists me in all my wants and comforts me in all my afflictions, who supports me when I am discouraged and continually obtains for me new favors, I return thee profound thanks, and I earnestly beseech thee, O most amiable protector, to continue thy charitable care and defense of me against the malignant attacks of all my enemies. O MOST holy Angel of God, appointed by God to be my guardian, I give thee thanks for all the benefits which thou hast ever bestowed on me in body and soul. O Angels of youth, conduct them, exposed to so many dangers, safely to the bosom of God, as Tobias was conducted back to his father. O Angels of those who employ themselves in the instruction of youth, animate them with thy zeal and love, teach them to emulate thy purity and continual view of God, that they may worthily and successfully co-operate with the invisible Guardians of their young charges. O Angels of the missionaries who have left their native land and all who were dear to them in order to preach the Gospel in foreign fields, protect them from the dangers which threaten them, console in their hours of discouragement and solitude, and lead them to those souls who are in danger of dying without Baptism. O Angels of infidels and pagans, whom the True Faith has never enlightened, intercede for them, that they may open their hearts to the rays of grace, respond to the message delivered by God’s missioners and acknowledge and adore the one true God. O Angels of all who travel by air, land or water, be their guides and companions, protect them from all dangers of collision, fire, and explosion and lead them safely to their destination. O Guardian Angels of sinners, charitable guides of those unhappy mortals whose perseverance in sin would embitter even thine unutterable joys, wert thou not established in the peace of God! Oh join me, I ardently beseech thee, in imploring their conversion! Thou, O Guardian Angels of the sick, I entreat thee especially to help, console and implore the spirits of joy for all those who are deprived of health, which is among God’s most precious gifts to man. O Angels of those are at this moment in the agonies of death, strengthen, encourage and defend them against the attacks of their infernal enemy. O faithful Guides, holy spirits, adorers of the Divinity, Guardian Angels of all creatures, protect us all; teach us to love, to pray, to wage combat on earth, so that one day we may reach Heaven and there be happy for all eternity! Amen. O Angels of those who are lingering in Purgatory, intercede for them that God may permit thee to bring them some balm; console them that they may know that we are praying for them and that we ask thee to join in our entreaties.
