Those times you wish you could receive a sign from Heaven, maybe you are.
Most of us are unfamiliar with the ways in which spirits try to contact and guide us. Surprisingly, they are not as subtle as you may think.
For centuries, people believe that there's a particular being that's assigned to protect and guide every individual.
I neither agreed or disagreed on the existence of ghosts or spirits until experiencing a life-changing incident that forever altered my perception of the afterlife.
Five years ago, both my husband and I lost our jobs only a week apart from each other. We had just bought a new house and were planning on having children.
A few months after struggling to find work, my husband wanted to call it quits.
My life suddenly turned upside down. I felt depressed, unmotivated, and lonely.
We sold our house, split whatever we owned, and I moved to the city. I was basically back at square one.
While it was difficult to find work, I knew it was the only option to get back on my feet. Unfortunately, no one wanted to hire me, despite being qualified for every position I applied for.
It felt like the universe was against me, until I noticed strange happening.
For a week straight, I had the exact same dream every night. I had dreamed of walking into a brown building with lots of stairs. Keep in mind, I had never seen this building before!
The last day I had that dream was the day I found that very building, which was only a few blocks away from my apartment. Turns out the building was a firm (the type of firm I dreamed of working for), and they were looking for someone with my qualifications.
The whole experience of dreaming about that building and getting a job there felt surreal.
The only plausible explanation as to why this happened was that my guardian angel was trying to guide me.
We can't see them, but they can see us, and if they ever need to get in contact with us, they will make their presence known in some unique ways.
Here are 10 signs that your guardian angel is trying to send you message.
1. Finding a feather on your path
If you unexpectedly stumble upon a feather, particularly white, it may be a sign that your guardian angel is calling for you.
They're trying to tell you to keep faith and remain strong through the rough patches you're going through.
When you see that white feather, just know that everything is going to be fine.
If you want to pick it up, feel free to do so. I usually put mine in my room to remind me to stay positive.
That feather is also a symbol of protection. Your guardian angel wants you to know that if you stay strong you can make it through.
2. Babies and pets are acting strangely
Babies and pets are believed to be pure souls who are able to sense a guardian angel's presence.
If you see a baby or pet concentrating somewhere where nothing is there, they're probably looking at a guardian angel.
You'll usually find babies looking up at the sky while smiling or giggling. It could be that a guardian angel is talking to them, and they're trying to respond or make out what they're saying.
Keep in mind, babies and pets appear at ease when they're close to a good spirit.
3. Finding coins in odd places
Guardian angels will sometimes send you small "gifts," such as coins, shiny pebbles, or trinkets.
You'll usually find these gifts in the most unlikely place possible.
If you stop and wonder how this tiny treasure found its way to where you are, don't think it's a coincidence.
If this small gift is similar to a piece of jewelry you own or a toy you had when you were a kid, your guardian angel is trying to send you a specific message.
A friend of mine once found a small brooch that belonged to her late grandmother. I can't think of any other reason for her finding that brooch other than her grandmother trying to tell her that she's at peace.
4. The sound of music
If you hear music that sounds angelic, as if a choir of angels are singing, it's your guardian angel trying to let you know that they're close and looking after you.
This music shouldn't sound eerie; You should feel comfortable.
If you get goosebumps be aware of your surroundings. Your guardian angel wants you to focus on what's infront of you, or your previous thought.
This could either mean that you're on the right track, or you need to weigh the pros and cons of what you're doing before rushing into things.
5. Flickering lights
Whether it's a sudden bright light, a colored orb, or flickering lights, a unique luminescence is a sign that your guardian angel is close by and protecting you.
If you happen to be in an uncomfortable situation, this may be a sign that something may go wrong and you should leave.
If you're in the comfort of your own home, don't be alarmed by flickering lights. Think about what you were doing or thinking last.
This may be a sign that your guardian angel wants you to think over something.
These next signs are very important to remember!
6. Having to question if something is a coincidence
We've all been through some really tough times that make us feel like all is lost.
Luckily your guardian angel will stop you before you do something irrational.
They'll contact you by giving you information, without you even knowing its them.
For example, you could be flipping pages through a book, scrolling through your phone or TV channels, when you suddenly come across "the right words" that help give sense to your situation.
7. Certain smells
Guardian angels are associated with certain smells, like flowers, perfume, vanilla, and even aftershave.
These smells are also usually connected to someone you love or loved. This is how they get your attention!
If a strong fragrance fills the air and then suddenly disappears, this means that your guardian angel is close by.
Now it's time to breathe a sigh of relief.
8. Changes in temperature
If the temperature fluctuates abnormally, this is another sign that your guardian angel is close by.
A sudden chill may mean that they want you to keep your guard up.
A feeling of warmth is their way to reassure you that everything will be okay.
9. Strange dreams
The window to your soul is the best way for your guardian angel to contact you.
It's hard to remember everything that happens in your dream when you wake up, but try to take in all you can. Your guardian angel may be sending you subtle messages.
This is how my guardian angel tried to contact me, and if I hadn't listened to her I probably wouldn't be where I am today.
10. Sensing a presence
You just feel it!
If you're in an empty room and don't feel like you're the only one there, you're probably not.
You may notice that the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, you feel a tingling on your head, or you hear faint voices.
If this happens often, that's probably not a good sign, but if it's happened to you once or twice, your guardian angel is trying to tell you something.
All you can do at this point is to be patient and wait for another sign.
