Rarely, people might hear a voice calling their name or warning them of danger, but many more feel guided by an inner or gut instinct, or feel a sense of reassurance and peace after asking for angelic support.
If you’re really lucky, your angel may begin to reach out to you on a regular basis. It’s important that angels don’t frighten us and initially their approach may be very subtle. As any incident occurs, we need to assimilate that information and get used to the idea that something paranormal or occult, that is something unknown or beyond normal, has happened to us. Once we’ve accepted and got used to the idea, often more contact occurs.
Guardian Angels don’t all work in the same way. They seem to adapt their approach according to their personality or ours. Some angels are more hands-on than others. They like to make it clear that they are with us. Some are gentle and prefer to stand back and wait to be invited in.
Most angels use signs to show that they are with us. It’s hard for them to manifest fully into our dimension. Their world is so different from ours. Our human eyes find it almost impossible to see them, so they use other tricks! Here are some of them:
1. A WHITE FEATHER
In your time of need, your Guardian Angel may bring a white feather as a gift to let you know that she is around. The white feather is a classic sign, which says, “We are here for you, we are supporting you; you are not alone.” You’ll probably find your white feather in an unexpected place, or it will appear in a place where no feather existed just moments before. A feather is a safe and gentle way for your angels to show you they are with you. This is one of the most common of all the angel signs and I’m sure you’ve heard of it. White feathers are known as the calling card of the angels and they can be any size. Some people find lots of little white fluffy feathers and others find larger swan-sized quills. Have you ever found feathers of your own? Their appearance can be quite unexpected or they might appear in an unusual way.
2. ANGEL MUSIC
It’s rare but if you’re very lucky, you may hear the sound of the celestial choir, as I did. Angel music sounds as if a million angels are singing in harmony, accompanied by an orchestra of harps. I guess it sounds exactly the way you feel it ought to sound! Musicians have tried many times to reproduce angel music of their own and their tracks do sound similar, although without the vibration of the angels you will never get an exact replica. The angelic choir is said to be praising God, the Creator Being, and is one of the most memorable ways in which angels can communicate with us.
3. SMALL GIFTS
Some angels leave small coins (pennies from heaven), crystals, or pebbles as presents. These seemingly insignificant tokens can mean a lot if you are looking for a keepsake. It can be nice to own something tangible that you can keep in a special place as a reminder that your Guardian Angel is a real being.
4. MEDIA SIGNS
After asking your angel for help, your sign might come in a surprising way. You might be flicking through a book or magazine and come across an article or paragraph that contains the information you are seeking. You could change the television channel and a news reporter will be discussing the very thing you are interested in, or perhaps you overhear a conversation between strangers. Be alert after asking for help – your angels will guide the information to you.
What a fun way for angels to reach out to us! We all experience coincidences from time to time, those moments when unexpected things come together in the perfect way. Perhaps you have asked your angel for help in obtaining a particular item. A friend who happens to pop by is, coincidently, looking for a new home for the very item you want.
Another scenario is that you might bump into an old friend several times after not seeing her for years. Maybe the two of you need to chat to discover why. It could be that your angel is setting something up. Know that coincidences are just another way of your angel bringing you a sign.
