Guardian angels are personal messengers of peace, wisdom, and insight. They are always with you to support and help you find the light, even in the darkest of places. While you can spend years and years learning how to channel messages from angels and fine tune your ability to connect with the Divine, your guardian angels are connecting with you – providing you with wisdom, direction, and angelic energy – and you don’t have to do anything at all.
Many of the times that I have connected with or noticed my angels – I wasn’t doing anything particularly spiritual. Last week, I went, as someone’s date, to a wedding. I was pretty grumpy about it – because it was a beautiful fall day and I wanted to be on a hiking trail.
As I was grumpily sitting in the church pew, out of the corner of my eyes, I noticed two giant flashes of bright light, and when I did ‘tune in’ to see who it was – I realized these were angels – not just with me, but with everyone there! Instantly, I realized how miserable I was being, my mood brightened, and I even pointed their presence out to a few of those around me. After I connected with Angels that day, I decided to write this article and share. . .
The 9 signs your Angels are already connecting with you
Angels will often appear as bright flashes of light that you can often see with your regular eyes (in addition to your third eye). Occasionally, Angels will appear as colored lights, but other times not. These flashes of light can appear to you, usually in the peripheral of your vision, at or above eye level and can look like a glare off of a mirror (with no sun around!), or a bit of glitter, or kind of like a bright white smoke! P.S. This is also a sign you have clairvoyant abilities!
Ringing in your ears
Many times when we learn something, we don’t need to know the information right away . . but whatever we learn comes in handy – always – at some point, in the near or distant future. While your guardian angels can deliver information, guidance and insight to you through friends, books, and classes – they also like to give you direct ‘downloads’ of angelic wisdom. Since you aren’t meant to use the guidance and insight right at that moment, but your angels want you to be aware of their presence – they will give you a sign that angelic information is being delivered to you – to be stored in your consciousness for later use.
This angelic download, while often not available for you to understand or comprehend right then can be experienced. For most of us, this experience is a ringing in the ears. It can be almost silent, nearly too loud, sound like a bell, or reminiscent of a buzz. Sometimes, it may even feel similar to your ears popping! This sound comes from your angels, providing you with information, to use at a time when it is necessary :). If the ringing is too loud or bothersome, simply ask them to ‘turn down the volume!’. They will. The ability to hear this sound is also a sign you have clairaudient abilities!
During meditation or just during the regular work day, you may notice tingling sensations. Guardian angels will often connect with your energy, and when they do, it often can feel like a tingly or buzzy feeling – because they are lifting your energy as they connect! While I notice this sensation near the crown of my head, you may notice the sensation of your angels near your shoulders, the back of your neck, or your upper arms!
Noticing beauty on a bad day
Guardian angels like to remind you of beauty – especially when you are having a hard time seeing it. When was the last time you were sad, upset, angry, or a grouch . . .and suddenly noticed a beautiful sunset, a butterfly, a blossoming flower, a line of geese flying overhead, a warm breeze, or a baby playing? Angels are the masters at helping you snap out of this lower state, and assisting to bring you back up to a higher vibrational state – and many times, all it takes is one sign! Next time, remember to point out your beautiful sign, to others – it will no doubt raise up their energy as well!
Do you have the ability to provide yourself with guidance, wisdom, and insight, even when you are going through a difficult time? Can you see the lesson in a situation and point it out to yourself and others (even if you don’t want to admit it!)? Do you find yourself offering soulful wisdom to yourself and others? If so, your guardian angels are likely providing you with the ability to step back and observe, watch, and understand a situation. When we do this, we have the ability to carefully guide ourselves and others through difficult pathways. If you are a mentor, coach, or therapist – to yourself and others – you are a light in the world and a messenger of angelic guidance. In fact, there are many times when we allow the angels to speak through us, without full awareness. Anytime you are delivering information and providing support from a more loving and compassionate place, you are connecting with the Angelic Realm.
Do you seem to draw people to you that want to tell you their story, and you listen – many times, not saying much at all? Even if you were in the middle of a fight with someone, have you ever just stopped, pulled back, and realized what this person needed was to be listened to? Then, somehow, the fight fizzled out. Guardian angels are the masters at dissolving tension, by reminding you to open your heart and your ears – they will often gently nudge and remind you to have compassion, simply by listening to and understanding others.
Staying out of harms way
Your guardian angels are making sure that you are kept safe, secure, and protected, and often times, this means you are pulled out and rescued from out of troublesome situations, just in the nick of time! Been distracted while driving, then suddenly looked up, and drew your attention back to the road, right before an accident would’ve happened? Ever knew something was dangerous or someone was untrustworthy, and then they were? Your guardian angels are protecting you in situations that may have otherwise been dangerous – such as walking alone home at night, or being stranded in a strange place. Just two months ago, my car broke down around 5 pm in a small, small town. With no money to spend the night, I was sure I’d be sleeping in my vehicle until morning – and at that moment, a 4th generation horse farrier (shoe-fitter) showed up – with all the tools in his truck to fix my car. Upon leaving, he handed me a silver dollar and I was back on the road in less than 45 minutes. Naturally, I made sure to thank my guardian angels!
Unexpected courage and strength
Angels will always encourage you to stretch your boundaries, especially when it comes to courageous acts. All courageous acts are acts of pure, unconditional love that require strength and resolve – right in the moment. A courageous act may be simply telling someone else how you feel, exposing your emotions and true nature to another person, or risking yourself for another being. No matter what your courageous act is, whenever it happens, you may have felt like you had no choice, or you absolutely had to do this thing – with no explanation for why or how you did it, you simply did. Your guardian angels knew you were ready to take this leap in opening your heart, and they pushed you to make the jump. When you need strength to tell someone the truth and stand in your nature, despite everything else – ask you guardian angels. They’re ready to help you with this.
Abundance of natural gifts, ideas, and finances
Your angels are always trying to offer you abundance, but for most of us, when we think of abundance, we think of more money! Often times, rather than giving you money, your guardian angels are providing you with abundance by nudging you to develop natural gifts that you have (intuitive, spiritual, creative, or otherwise!), providing you with great ideas (that can make you income!), or providing you with unexpected gifts, shelter, love, and support. Many times, we dismiss offerings of abundance, by rejecting gifts from others or expecting abundance to come in one particular way. When we do this, we are turning down the gifts of the angels! Even if your abundance looks like a simple offer for a co-worker to take you out to lunch – say thank you, and go! This is a gift of abundance.
In addition, you may be expecting opportunity to come from a certain direction, such as ways to make new income at your current job, like getting a raise or a promotion. But rather,the angels are giving you ideas to quit your job, and start a business you’ve always dreamed of . . .or write a book! While at the moment this is a gift of a new idea or opportunity, it could lead to abundance in all aspects of your life – self love, satisfaction, fulfillment in your life’s purpose, and a way for you to be provided for without struggle.
While you continue to develop your connection with your guardian angels, just take a moment of pause and remind yourself that many times, you’re already connected.
