Have you ever wondered how to ask for signs from the angels or if it’s okay to do so? Then read on, because this article is just for you.
Are You Allowed to Ask for Signs?
Clients often ask, “Dar, am I allowed to ask for signs from the angels?” To be honest, the people who ask me this question were often brought up in religious dogma that stripped them of their free will by imposing iron-clad rules of appropriate worship.
My answer to them is always a big YES! You can, and are encouraged to ask for signs from your Guardian Angels, the Archangels and Infinite Love, God, Divine Source, or whatever you prefer to call this Higher Power, who wants you to live an empowered and victorious life. And more importantly, it is encouraged and expected by your Divine Team that you ask for signs and confirmations.
There is a beautiful story in the ancient text that supports this. It is the story of Gideon. Gideon was told by Infinite Love that he would be protected and his people rescued. Yet Gideon, in his humanness, needed a sign of reassurance. So Gideon laid out a piece of lamb’s wool outside overnight and told Infinite Love, “If you truly are going to rescue us, prove it to me by making this fleece of wool wet in the morning, but the ground around it dry.”
He left the piece of fleece out all night, and in the morning that’s just what happened. He squeezed the fleece and wrung out a bowl full of water, yet the ground around it remained dry.
Still needing reassurance, Gideon asked Infinite Love for yet another sign. This time he asked Infinite Love to leave the fleece dry overnight and the ground around it wet. And in the morning, Gideon discovered Infinite Love had again answered his request!
There are many similar accounts throughout multiple spiritual texts of all faiths around the world, which encourage your request for signs to bolster your faith and trust and reassure you.
Infinite Love and the angels welcome your request for personal signs and confirmations in order to bolster your faith and trust in their ever-present help and guidance.
Asking for Signs – No Wrong or Right Way
There is no wrong or right way to ask for signs from the angels or Infinite Love. The important thing is just to ask. Remember that the angelic realm works with Universal Law. So, your intention, or the “why” of your asking, is key.
Above all, ask from a state of joy and love instead of fear.
Fear has a low vibrational rate, and although fearful asking in a dire situation will be honored, requests often appear faster when you ask from a place of joy and positive expectation.
It is important to note here that sometimes unless you’re asking for a specific concrete sign like Gideon did, the angels may send you metaphorical signs such as showing you a closed door or a stop sign. So be open to the many ways signs can present themselves to you.
My Favorite Ways to Ask for Signs
Here are four of my favorite ways to ask for signs from the angels. I’m sharing these with you because they work quickly for my students and me.
#1 Affirmative prayer and statements. Affirmative prayer is a request stated in the positive. For example, show me a sign instead of saying, “I want to be reassured.” I would say, “Thank you, Infinite Love, for giving me a reassuring sign. Thank you that it’s given in a way that only I can understand.” Affirmative prayers are worded with full expectation and gratitude that it is already done.
#2 Dream signs. This is one of my top favorites. Right before I sleep, I ask the angels to share a specific sign of their presence. This works for me 100 percent of the time, and it’s fun too! A great example I can share came about six months ago. I felt discouraged one evening about a certain issue of a personal nature. Before I went to sleep, I asked for a simple sign to help move me through the emotional hump. That evening I dreamed of a monk knocking on my door. When I opened it, he said one word that helped push me through to joy. The word? Faith.
#3 Personal Signs. I also enjoy asking the angels for random signs that I choose. For example, number combinations, butterflies, a certain color car, a specific animal, and my favorite – colored feathers and seashells. Sometimes my personal signs are revealed instantaneously, but they always appear within three or four days.
#4 Art Journal Signs. This one is fun, and I include it because many of you are creatives like me. In my Angelic Love Journal, which I use for various purposes, I sketch out a specific sign I’d like to receive. Remember the colored feathers I mentioned earlier? Last week I randomly chose a pink feather to sketch and watercolor in my art journal. While doing so, I told my guardian angels that it would be fun if they serendipitously brought a pink feather into my experience. A few days later, I had to get out of the car to move a shopping cart, so I could park. Guess what was inside? You got it. A pink feather!
Asking for signs from the angels is a fun and amazing way to receive confirmations and comfort that you’re loved, heard, and that you’re taken care of by Infinite Love and the angels.
It’s a great confidence builder and comfort that your spiritual team loves you and that they have your back.
Call the Angels, pray to them. Your wishes and dreams are immediately fulfilled as soon as you realize the power of teaming up 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 to Break Generational Curses
A generational curse stems from negative patterns of your family history that are repeated in your life. If you feel that your life is affected by a generational curse, the time has come to break it. Pray this angelic prayer.
Please, help me remove all the negative feelings and thoughts that make me think and act like a victim. Give me guidance so I may stop complaining about misfortune and take responsibility for my life and happiness. Help me overcome the attitude of victimhood and step into the power of my spiritual mastery. Every time I fall into the pitfalls of this mental attitude, please remind me of the powerful, divine being that I am. Amen
An Angelic Prayer to Break Free from Ungodly Soul Ties
If you feel like your life is being plagued with sorrow, you may need to cut unhealthy soul ties that have been formed out of past relationships in this or any other life. Try this angelic prayer to break free from these toxic energy cords.
An Angelic Prayer to Break Free from Ungodly Soul Ties
Please, break every unhealthy soul tie formed out of past relationships in this or any other life. Cut toxic energy cords. May every ungodly tie be completely shattered, crushed, and totally detached from my soul, heart, thoughts, emotions, and will. Let every fragment of myself tied to someone else return to me, cleared out and purified. Please, help me break the chains that have held me in emotional and psychological slavery. Enable me to remove all these unclean spirits, negative energies and presences by blessing and sending them into the light. Help me fill the space that is left with the healing energy of love and compassion.
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 have 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 must 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 seek is already being provided, 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.
And now, a quick meditation video just for you:
To thank the Angels is 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 you send to the Universe showing that you are open to receiving. **It’s like a powerful magnet that attracts complementary energies into your life.**
This is why you must send your gratitude to the Angels even though they do not need thanks.
