As we go through the trials and tribulations of life, somewhere in the back of our mind, we hope that someone is watching out for us. Some of us may think of God, while some others might believe that there are angels that are taking care of us. And you may be right.


In fact, you might have even experienced the signs that angels are around you, even if you weren't aware of it. But noticing the signs and understanding what those signs mean are two different things.

What is an angel sign?

According to the Law of Attraction, an angel sign is a form of guidance that we receive from the winged guardians. They don't directly interfere in your decisions but they provide insight and direction during troubling times or when you are going through a spiritual awakening.


But those signs aren't just any random thing. Here are the nine most common angel symbols you should look out for. 

1. Ringing ears

Angelic voices are too powerful to hear as they are so when you hear it, it might sound like ringing in your ears. You might even hear some whispers that seem as if they are right next to you or in your head. If you hear this sound suddenly, take a look around you and reflect on what you're thinking about. An angel may be trying to guide you in the direction that's best for you.

2. Dreams or premonitions

When you're asleep, your subconscious mind becomes more open to communication by the angels. Recurring dreams or messages during various dreams can be a warning of possible disruption in your life.


3. Rainbows

If you see a rainbow that has streaked across the sky without warning, it could be a sign from the angels and other spiritual beings. It's their way of showing you that they will always love you and be by your side.

4. White feathers

For long, the dazzling white wings of angels have been a thing of beauty. So it comes as no surprise that white feathers have been linked to their presence. In general, feathers symbolize protection. Even feather prints on clothes and other objects are a sign of protection - your angel will take care of you.


5. Animals 

Angels and the spirit world have used animals as their messengers for ages. The connection between the two is very strong. So if you see an animal suddenly as you go about doing your activities, then be assured that you have an angel looking out for you.

6. Sparkles of light

Flashes of color and light sparkles are just as potent an angel symbol as any other. They can be seen in a sudden streak or in your peripheral vision. Certain colors that you see are the angels' way of talking to you. For example, orange is meant to signal optimism or positivity while green is connected to an increase in power. Blue or purple can indicate that you need to take time to relax.


7. Angel numbers

One of the ways angels communicate is through numerical patterns. So if you see some numbers that are constantly being repeated and with increasing frequency, don't ignore it. Angel numbers can mean specific things. The more the numbers repeat, the stronger the message, according to Ask Angels.com.

8. Clouds shaped as angels

This could be one of the most obvious signs. Seeing an angel-shaped cloud or clouds in the shape of wings indicates the presence of an angel.

9. Butterflies

Butterflies are known to be symbols of reincarnation and rebirth. In fact, seeing them often is a sign that your departed loved ones are coming back to visit you. And much like your loved ones, angels are also known to appear in that form. So if a butterfly is leading you in a certain direction, lands on you or remains close to you, it could be an angel connecting to you.
