10 Signs from the Angels
This article was written by Llewellyn

People who have studied angels have discovered there are certain
ways in which angels make their presence felt. You may have experienced these sensations but not realized their significance. Below are
ten of the most common signs to help you to identify the presence
of an angel, especially if it is at a time when you have asked for angelic help or you have a dilemma or a decision to make.
White feathers appear in unexpected places, usually when you have
called an angel in your mind or if an angel is trying to attract your
- Shimmering light
Shimmering light, dancing light beams, dancing rainbows, silver glitter, or golden dust-beams forming a pattern seen out of the corner
of your eye when there is no obvious sun light. Also a slight buzzing
sensation heard and felt within your body with a sense of inexplicable
- Angel wings
Becoming aware of an angel wing or feeling angel wings touching
you, sometimes called an angel hug. Angel wings are the part of the
angel that is most visible externally and may be seen as being made of
feathers or light. Some people do not see angel wings, but feel them-
selves hugged or enclosed by the wings, described as the softest blanket imaginable.
The melodic tinkling of tiny bells, especially in the early morning or
late evening when all is silent. This is a very common sign of angelic
presence and uses our psychic hearing ability, called clairaudience. If
you listen to the bells, they may suggest words in your mind. Often
household angels use this method, and they may stop a baby crying
with their lovely sounds. The more quiet times you have, however
brief, the more you will hear angel music.
A sudden wonderful floral fragrance more delicate and more beautiful than any earthly perfume, where there were no noticeable fragrances prior to the experience. This is another common way angels
make their presence known, and as you work more with specific angels, you will become aware of their different fragrances. Your guardian angel may spontaneously announce his or her presence with a specially sweet or rich form of your personal favorite floral fragrance,
again even if you have none of the perfume or oil in the room.
A butterfly or beautiful moth, especially out of season, that flies into
your home and settles close to you or remains out side motionless for
a long period of time. Butterflies and moths have traditionally been
seen as spirit travelers and a way that angels move easily around the
earth. Both are symbols of rebirth and transformation, so this angelic signal may appear after a setback, when you are seeking a new beginning, or even around the time of a birth or the death of someone to
whom you were very close. Moths and butterflies are a very subtle
form of angelic communication and they some times bring a message from a deceased relative who has been on your mind.
Butterflies are often a way of saying to a person who is always dashing or is a workaholic, “Hey, slow down and be aware of the wondrous
world beyond the computer screen and stressful daily commuting.”
A feeling of sudden rippling warmth even on a cold day, as if you
were standing by a warm air vent, followed by a sense of total peace
flooding through you. This sensation may occur at a time when you
were panicking or feeling stressed. There is not usually a message,
but a sense of calm, so thank your angel whenever this occurs.
- Choral music
Full-blown choral type music, maybe just for a minute or two, of
which no one else seems aware. This is rarer and generally indicates
the presence of an archangel, or that you have spontaneously tuned
into higher angelic energies such as the red and gold seraphim, whose
song, according to the Bible, shepherds heard when Jesus was born.
- Figure of light
Waking from sleep to see a fleeting glimpse of an unmistakeable
figure of light. The transition between sleeping and waking is the
time when the logical mind is least active and so the spiritual self and
clairvoyant vision are more naturally activated. This experience may
be accompanied by an overwhelming but fleeting fragrance.
- Someone calling your name
Someone calling your name two or three times in a rich, melodious
tone that makes you feel happy and sad at the same time. The voice
may sound urgent if you are about to do something stupid or dangerous.

In the Major Arcana of the Tarot, the Fool goes on a journey. This is similar to the Hero's Journey in mythology, and some view the ups and downs of the Major Arcana as the pathway the Fool takes to wisdom. Most people take the "Fool's Journey" several times during their life. If we hold the journey up as a template against our own life, it can... read this article
