The idea that a guardian angel is watching over each and every one of us can be an enormous comfort.

Some people believe that their guardian angel is a spiritual being who looks out for their well-being, while others believe their guardian angel is a deceased loved one who is offering guidance.

For those who do believe in guardian angels, or are open to the possibility, it can be difficult to know when your angel is close by.

But just as there are simple methods to determine your guardian angel’s name, there are quite a few signs that indicate when you may be receiving a visit from an angel of God.

Dreams are often considered the windows to the soul, but they also can indicate that your guardian angel is nearby.

Angel believers report that a guardian angel may visit you in a dream to let you know that they are watching over you. They may try to deliver some kind of message, or they may simply be reassuring you about their presence.

2. You See Strange Colored Orbs

If you spot a bright light or a strange colored orb, you might think that your eyes are playing tricks on you. However, these lights and orbs are said to be “vehicles for angels.”

You may spot an orb in your everyday life, or you may look at a photograph and notice that there is a strange orb floating around you. Many claim that these unique lights are a sign that your guardian angel is by your side.

3. You Notice A Sudden Sweet Smell

If you cannot explain an unexpectedly pleasant smell, it may be a sign that a guardian angel is nearby.

Believers report that these sweet scents may simply be your angel’s way of reaching out to you, to let you know that they are with you. The smells may take the form of delicious food, fragrant flowers, or a pleasant perfume that a deceased loved one used to wear.

4. You Find A White Feather

An excerpt from Jacky Newcomb’s book, Do You Know Your Guardian Angel, reads, “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.”

A white feather may cross your path in an extremely unlikely location, and is said to arrive at times when you are most in need. Believers say that this angel sign is your guardian’s way of letting you know that they are with you and that you are not alone.

5. Your Baby Sees Something You Can't

Many believe that babies and pets may be able to see guardian angels, even when the rest of us can’t. Angels are said to put animals and babies at ease.

You might see a pet staring at a certain spot in the room, or a baby smiling at something you can’t see. If you spot a baby seeming to interact with something that isn’t there, it may just be a sign that your guardian angel is present.

6. You See Angels In The Clouds

As a child, you may have spent time laying on your back, staring up at the clouds. But some claim there are certain cloud shapes that may be signs from your guardian angel.

These angel clouds could take the literal form of an angel. But they may also appear in pleasing shapes, such as hearts, or in symbols that are particularly meaningful or personal to you.

7. You Spot Angel Numbers In Common Places

According to, “One of the most common ways angels will attempt to capture your attention and guide you is through Angel Numbers.”

Reportedly, these are numbers that either have specific, personal meaning to you — such as birthdays or anniversaries — or magical, repeating numbers such as “333” or “11:11.” These numbers popping up in everyday situations may be your guardian angel’s way of getting your attention.

8. You Experience A Sudden Change In Temperature

Similar to a sudden, unexplainable odor, an unexpected change in temperature may be a sign that your guardian angel is at your side.

People report these temperature changes in a variety of ways. Some people will feel a strange chill. But others may experience a sudden warmth surrounding them. This warmth may be your angel’s way of giving you a reassuring hug.

9. You Hear Muffled Voices

You might not be able to literally talk with your guardian angel. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t trying to communicate with you.

Some who believe in angels claim that they hear muffled voices in otherwise quiet situations. This distant, muffled sound could be your guardian angel attempting to speak to you, or it may simply be their way of assuring you that they are close.

10. You Feel Like You Are Not Alone

Everyone has experienced the feeling that they are not alone at one time or another. This might just be a sixth sense, or it might be the raising of the hairs on the back of your neck.

Many angel believers can sense when their guardian angel is with them. They report that they know someone else is present, even though the room may appear completely empty.

11. You Feel Tingling At The Crown Of Your Head

One specific feeling that many believers report is a tingling at the back of the head. This tingling may take the form of sudden warmth, or it may be more akin to when your foot falls asleep.

Many report that the relationship between the crown of the head and an angel’s halo can be a powerful connection. This tingling may be your guardian angel’s preferred way of communicating with you.

While many may remain skeptics, there are plenty of us out there who believe in the presence and power of angels. These guardian angel signs may just be their way of letting you know that you aren’t alone, and that you have someone watching over you.

Call the Angels, pray to them. Your wishes and dreams are immediately fulfilled as soon as you realize the power of teaming with your Angels.  Nothing is impossible for them to handle.

Here are two prayers for you. From our book of Angelic Prayers

An Angelic Prayer for Purification

Are you feeling burdened by negative emotions? Try this angelic prayer for purification.


An Angelic Prayer for Purification

Dear Angel,

please, help me purify my spirit by releasing and dissolving any negative feelings and thoughts toward myself and others. Purify me from resentment, anger, greed, deceit, envy, selfishness, pride, hypocrisy, vanity, lust, jealousy and any other low-frequency emotion. Purify, protect and uplift me so that I may always be aligned to the frequencies of your heavenly love. Restore my true essence so that I may become as pure and innocent as a newborn baby. Please, let me return to the origins of my innocent soul.


An Angelic Prayer for Financial Help

Are you losing sleep over money? Are you stressed about your financial situation? You don't know how to get out of debts? Try this angelic prayer.


Dear Angel,

you see my material needs, you know my lack of money and my debts. You know my worries and fears about my financial situation. I lost sleep over money concerns. The stress of figuring out how to get out of debts is almost more than I can stand. I ask your loving intervention to relieve my financial woes and ease this stress. Please, calm my anxious mind and infuse me with a sense of trust and hope. Enlighten me and help me find an immediate solution to my money issues. Help me have enough money to pay my bills and fill my basic needs. Keep me motivated to fix my financial problems rather than being in a mood of despair and getting continuously bogged down by thoughts of failure and defeat. Guide me in every decision I take. Help me not to make bad choices because of my financial anxiety. Align me with the energy of prosperity and abundance.  Pour wealth into my life. Let money come to me easily and abundantly. Help me shift from the fear of not having enough money to the gratitude for all the blessings I'm about to receive.


Remember this: every prayer is being listened to, at any time, by your Angels. Every prayer is answered and Grace is always granted. You are unconditionally loved by Angels.

Imagine that your desire has come true. Do not focus on ‘how’ it has happened, but only on the fact that it ‘has happened’. Imagine what you would like to achieve in your life, then start to feel as if you had already achieved it. In a prayer, what always matters is the feeling of being and of having what you wish for.

Imagine, for example, that you wish help from your Angels in manifesting a new job. You’ll have to be in fine tune with the essence of what you want and ‘see’ yourself in your new job. You need to dive deep into the vibes and feelings of having what you want to create. When you set an intention with a mindset of openness to receive, you affirm that what you are seeking is already being provided, is already created and made available for your use.

As you learn to clear out blocks, patterns, and karmic connections that no longer serve you, you are better able to receive your heart’s desires. You start to see that all is in Divine Order and you can relax more into acceptance of what flows in your life.

Be Grateful

To thank the Angels is really important, but not for them, because giving is their true nature. They give for the pure joy of giving. To thank them is important for you because gratitude always brings more blessings. The feeling of gratitude is like a signal that you send to the Universe showing that you are open to receive.

It’s like a powerful magnet that attracts complementary energies into your life. This is why you have to send your gratitude to the Angels even though they have no need for thanks.
