Angels are all around us but we rarely credit them with the blessings they give, and even more rarely sense their presence. Becoming aware of angels is rarely about any sort of ‘vision’. Like most spirit manifestations, angelic visitations can be almost ‘ordinary’, and yet you will know, deep inside, that something marvellous is happening. Take note of this and have faith in it, and gradually you will be more able to experience the truly transcendent.
Start by having an attitude of expectancy about the angels. If they are all around you, what hints are you receiving about this? How might these beings make themselves known to you? What signs might there be that angels are at work?
One of the most well-known of the angel ‘calling cards’ is the white feather, and if you find one, keep it with you to reinforce your angelic connection. You might come upon a feather on the floor, or among your clothes, or upon your path when you are out walking. This may happen when you have been thinking about angels, and maybe asking for their help. It may come spontaneously, when you are feeling lost and desperate, and may follow upon a sensation of peace coming over you, as if from nowhere. This sense of peace, calm and well-being is also a sign, in itself, that an angel has brushed you with his, or her wings.
Look also for angels in cloud formations. There may appear to be a host of angels over a site that is in some way important, or sacred. At another time, when you are asking for angelic support, you may see one cloud-angel, there just to reassure you.
Plants may also show signs of angels by flourishing beyond expectations. Cut flowers that last longer, pot plants that bloom out of season and dying plants that revive may all be evidence of angelic work, in harmony with the nature spirits, to whom they have lent their energy.
Angels are especially attuned to sound, and it may be that when you are needing their help, you find a friend uses the word ‘angel’ or you hear a song on the radio containing it. If you are very lucky, you may even feel the gentlest of touches on your shoulder, as an angel brings you comfort. Angel forms may also appear in crystals, or you may ‘come upon’ angel paintings or statues, just when they are most appropriate.
Angels are well-loved and because of this there are many angel artefacts that can be easily bought. You may well be drawn to an ornament or piece of jewellery, not just because it is pretty but because it has angelic associations and will strengthen your ability to feel their presence. If a friend gives you an angel brooch, statue or fridge magnet, you can be sure that the angels have guided her choice. Treasure the gift all the more because of this.
