It took me a long time to figure out if angels and spirit guides exist. I know some of my logical friends still think I am “crazy” for believing in invisible beings, but throughout key moments in my life and various spiritual experiences I can’t help but confirm my spirit guides, guardians and/or angels were with me.
Whether it’s through a reoccurring number or chills sent through your body, angels and guides present themselves mainly through our senses. Since the majority of everyone cannot “see” things (or a blocked third eye) our guides must get in touch with us somehow. Whether it’s to remind you that you are on the right path or to signal you about a potential problem, here are some ways to note that your guides and guardians are with you based on my experiences with life.
Reoccurring Number Patterns – Have you been seeing the same number over and over again? Has an important email been sent at an important time like 1:11pm or 2:34pm? Angels and guides communicate through numbers to grab our attention. I find numbers help confirm or bring awareness to a certain thought or action that occurred at the same time. I’ve found numbers come through from license plate numbers to my total at a grocery store.
Chills – Chills are a universal sign that you’ve connected to your soul and that your guides are with you. I remember from going through past life regression hypnotherapy that I began researching this life I once had. When I asked the question, “Was I once a native American corn woman?” chills flooded through my body and I felt the urge to look at the clock which was 11:11am. To me, this confirmation signaled the truth to my past life.
Actions from Nature – Whether you are sitting alone in nature, or questioning something while driving, guides will present their actions through nature. Has an “odd” looking cloud appeared? Has a certain bird entered your presence? Signs from nature are signs from the heavens. After visiting a Native American site in Utah, I was thinking about my upcoming move to Europe. Doing well in my career, I wondered if this move would be good for me. I looked out the car window to notice a beautiful angel shape cloud soaring above, which reminded me that my guides would take care of me.
Rainbows – Although scientific when combing light, clouds and rain, rainbows in many ancient cultures are a sign from guides. I’ve been a bit of a rainbow chaser the last couple years and see rainbows in some of the most majestic places. Many believe rainbows are a valid sign for your thoughts, worries or actions.
Ads to Answer Your Question – If you’ve questioned something, “How the hell do I sell a book?” and then some pertinent emails or advertisements come through, it is a message that your guides are trying to help. Most people think that the angels do the work. In reality, they give you hints or messages about something and it’s your free will (or awareness) to choose that route. Normally, they try to get your attention three times.
Physical Touches – I had a friend once who had a powerful story. She began to cross the street and surprisingly a guy blew a red light. She felt hands on her shoulders pull her backwards, which brought her back on the sidewalk. She looked up, down and around her and not one person was in sight. Who else could it be besides a spirit guide. I still get chills to this day when I think of her story.
Whiffs of Scents – Did you just randomly smell oranges? Some believe that random smells are signs that an angel is present. Many believe certain scents trigger certain beings. I’ve had this experience while performing Reiki on people. I’d either feel movement through the air and/or whiffs of a certain scent life orange, rose or garlic. Not sure what the garlic means, besides maybe someone was once a great cook.
Music – Songs sometimes appear at the perfect time. Whether it’s a song that has an imprinted memory on your soul, or lyrics that you can relate to, songs are the perfect message. I remember my first visit to Europe we flew Iceland Air and the new Monsters of Men album was on there. I loved this particular song because it reminded me of Europe. Well, we wanted to move to Europe and at the time my husband put in his application that song popped on the radio. When he left for his interview in Germany, that song came on in the airport and in my car ride home. As you can guess, he got accepted for his fellowship and between the song, email communication times and gut feelings, I knew we were destined to move to Europe.
Do you have any angel stories to share? What signs signal you? I love to hear, learn and grow through people’s experiences.
