Meaning and Symbolism of Angelic Light Colors
amanda linette meder
Angels are beings of light energy.
Usually, they've not been human before, so what this means is: they often don't appear in any human or any other sort of defined shape.
But they do appear as light.
As beings of light, Angels frequently appear as:
Flashes of light
Streaks in the air
Balls of light zipping past you
Because they don’t have a body and most never have, they usually aren’t bound by shape, which is what makes Angel sightings so versatile.
Angels will appear in these most common scenarios:
Right in front of your eyes wide open
In a dream
In a meditation
Many people have Angels come to them in their visions.
The color of the light that Angels use to appear is often just white, the color of all energy, or as some call it, the pure source Light of the Divine.
Angels will appear to the viewer in different colors depending on:
The energy wavelength at which they travel
The type of Angel they are
The type of energy they’re sending you
Angels can and do appear to people using a wide array of different colors.
Each of these colors has a meaning, is symbolic in accordance with their role in your life, and with what message your Angel friend is trying to convey.
Color of light also has to do with wavelength. So aside from Angel light colors being symbolic, it could also be scientific, Angels could travel and communicate through different wavelengths. Or in the metaphysical community, we call this “different vibrations.”
I know this is a post about Angels, but one of my favorite things to research is the words we use to speak about the same things but in different languages, the scientific language is such type of language.
Some scientific metaphysical people (including myself) think it’s possible Angels appear to humans using the visible spectrum of light available to the human eye, colors between infrared and ultraviolet, so you can see them without any special skills or training.
Angels could also appear in ultraviolet vibrations, making them visible to infants, insects, and some pets. Some humans can see beyond the standard range of visible light.
Either way, regardless of the reasons why or how, below are the most common colors of light Angels use (besides white), their symbolism, and the connected Angel to each -
The 7 Main Colors of Angelic Light
RED - Strength, independence, self-sufficiency, rootedness, groundedness, a symbol of earth connection, of purpose, of fire. Stimulation of energy, rising, physical energy. (Angels: Nathaniel).
YELLOW - Support and stimulation of intellectual activities, self-worth, self-confidence, self-esteem, and feelings of self-power (Angels: Ariel, Jophiel).
When yellow appears as gold, it adds protection and healing to the already yellow color.
GREEN - Heart and healing, joy and love, nature and connection to healing vibrations, inner peace, and restful feelings (Angels: Raphael).
BLUE - Clear communication and expression, protection through firm boundaries and space, and spiritual assistance (Angels: Gabriel, Uriel).
INDIGO - Majesty, intuition, knowingness, ability to think and made sound decisions, imagination, inner wisdom (Angels: Michael, Zadkiel).
VIOLET - Connectedness to all, divinity, ability to connect with inner and outer beauty, spiritual bliss (Angels: Metatron).
The colors of each visible light color may merge together and blend, such as red with orange to form a warm desert color, becoming pink or becoming burgundy.
With merged colors, you’ll have properties of both Angels and wavelength meanings mixing together to form a new healing energy. Angels will often appear together and merge and blend their energies, this is quite normal.
Why Angels Appear
When Angels appear to you, your Angel guides may simply be letting themselves known and saying hello, to identify who they are as they assist you.
Each of the colors of Angelic light can also match the colors of the Chakras. If an Angel appears in one of the Chakra colors of light, they may have come to assist you with one of the issues associated with that color and that corresponding Chakra.
If you close your eyes and see colors in meditation, it could be a sign of what type of Angel is guiding you, and coming to you in your visualizations.
To take your meditations one step further, when you see these colors in meditation:
Ask what Angel it is, and you’ll usually get a name. This is a great way to identify Angels as they visit you on a firsthand experience basis.
