When surveyed in 2011 as part of an Associated Press-GfK poll 77 percent of adults in America believed that angels were real.
Believing in angels is primarily tied to religion, with 88 percent of Christians, 95 percent of evangelical Christians and 94 percent of those who attend weekly religious services of any sort saying they believe in angels. That means that 8 in 10 Americans believe.
Some religions believe that angels act as a link between God and heaven and humanity. Other roles of angels include acting as a protector or guide to humans. They could also be seen as carrying out tasks on God's behalf. The word angel itself comes from the Late Latin angelus which literally means messenger.
Angels appear around us all the time and can be found in paintings, etchings, figurines, T-shirts, posters, mugs, magnets and everything in between. If you feel you have been given a sign from an angel, perhaps you have been in a time of need of divine intervention. Perhaps you prayed for a sign. Since angels clearly operate as part of a different wavelength than humans you may need help to interpret their meaning. Often divine signs come before, during or after significant events, such as a loved one passing away. Here are some signs that could be interpreted as assurance from angels that you are exactly where you need to be in your life. The signs you see are yours to interpret and you will need to use your feelings as a way to decipher what is a sign and what is not. The first question to ask is always "What does the sign mean to me?"
Ever see the same numbers repeated everywhere? 11:11 on a clock, $11.11 on your receipt, a pickup at 1111 Street? Could the universe be sending you a message? Take note of what is happening around you when you notice. Different numbers can have different meaning, for example when you see 111 it is often interpreted as a wakeup call from the universe. If you are seeing specific numbers a deep dive into numerology could tell you what message you may be receiving.
Orbs are spheres of light, which are usually white but can be any color really. They are often caught in digital photographs. Not every orb is a spiritual being at work and often they can be caused by dust particles reflecting light. As with any sign, it is up to receiver to decide on it's validity. You will know when the orb is in a particularly significant spot and should be interpreted as a sign. If you see different colored orbs, you can also search on it's meaning. For example, blue orbd are meant to show power, protection, faith, courage, and strength. Pink orbs are meant to show love and peace.
This is perhaps the most widely seen angel sign. White feathers are the most common and they are said to be a sign that a loved one in heaven is well and has crossed over. Especially if the feather floats out of nowhere and gently lands in front you. Different colored fethers are reported as having different meanings. Yellow feathers can be a reminder to stay cheerful , present and alert while gray feathers can be a sign that not everything is black or white.
Finding dimes and pennies is another common sign that many people find. Have you ever been walking along, minding your own business, when you looked down and saw a penny there on the sidewalk in front of you? There are many popular poems and quotes attributed to finding pennies. My fvorite is this anonymous one that I love: “When an angel misses you, they toss a penny down … sometimes to cheer you up, to make a smile out of your frown. So, don’t pass by that penny when you’re feeling blue; it may be a penny from Heaven that an angel tossed to you.”
Tingling Sensations, Goosebumps or Chills
If you are actually cold, this is probably not a sign. However, if you feel an energy flow through you that causes you to tingle, get goosebumps or shudder unexpectedly, it could be worth investigating. Pay attention to what is happening around you. What are you discussing when this happened, who was around you? For those experiencing this, know that spiritual chills and goosebumbs are the first of the psychic senses to open up and indicate you are ona spiritual path.
Is there a particular fragrance that holds meaning to you? Suddenly smelling roses in a room after your loved one died could be a message - especially if they loved roses. Other sscents you may encounter could include food that reminds you of someone special or a familiar fragrance like their perfume. Again, it is up to you to decide if the smell stirs up memories ask - "What does the sign mean to me?".
There are many other signs that could be related to a spiritual visit, but these are the most common. Signs are always most meaningful to the person who gets them. If you don't believe in signs, that is certainly ok too. Signs are only as important as they are to the person experiencing them.
