A guardian angel protects and guides you through the hardships and wondrous path of life. Some people seek advice or direction from their guardian angels to make difficult decisions in life. Others see the blessings of their guardian angels in everyday happenings. Each soul has a guardian angel, but there are many who don’t realize it. This is because they don’t know what to look for to see the presence of their guardian angel.

Guardian angels can come to us in many forms. Sometimes they are the souls of loved ones or family members who have passed on to the next life. Other times, they may simply be divine spirits watching over one’s path. Not all these forms are visible. But one can observe the presence of a guardian angel in what might seem like ordinary signs or events.

Guardian angels do not have to manifest in full, angelic form for their presence to be seen. Instead, a guardian angel might draw your attention to an important message. Or you might have sensations that signal your angel is near. Here are 11 signs that you can look for to see the presence of your guardian angel.

Flashes and Glimmers of Light

Sometimes guardian angels signal their presence through light. These lights may appear as flashes without a direct source. Or they may be a flash of sunlight striking a window. The lights won’t always take the form of an obvious flash either. They may be sparkles of light that you see out of the corner of your eye. They could also be soft glimmers in the sunlight streaming in through a window. Flickering lights in the darkness could also be signs your guardian angel is near. As ethereal beings, guardian angels can make their presence known in the physical world through natural elements like light.

Indirect Signs and Messages

Light is just one visible form that guardian angels might use to signal their presence. But they can also direct your attention to signs in the physical world that communicate a message. Such a sign might be a billboard or a sign in a shop window. It could be a phrase or sentence that catches your attention. If you have been seeking guidance for a difficult question, a guardian angel might gently suggest the right path to take in the form of these indirect signs.

Earthly Signs

If you’ve ever seen a cloud that looks like an angel, it may have been your guardian angel.  Guardian angels can manifest through earthly signs. Such signs might include clouds, rainbows, or stumbling upon a delicate white feather. You might not even see a form but feel the presence of the angel as you gaze upon the beauty of nature. To feel the angel’s presence, just concentrate on the earthly sign and listen to your soul. If you feel warmth or a gentle peace wash over you, then your guardian angel is reaching out.

In the Eyes of Babes and Pets

Babies and animals retain an ability to see beyond what we accept as everyday reality. You might have seen a baby looking at something that you can’t see and giggling. Or you might see your dog looking at what appears to be nothing and wagging its tail. Because babies and animals haven’t been trained to make a clear distinction between what is “real” and “unreal,” they are able to see the divine presence. By watching babies and animals and their reactions, you can sense a guardian angel without being able to see it yourself.

Gentle Ringing

Besides visual signs, a guardian angel can also communicate the divine presence through sound. Some people report hearing a gentle ringing in the ears. This is the guardian angel singing its love for you in the airwaves. Because angels do not have the same sensory receptors as humans, sometimes this ringing may be too faint or too loud. If that is the case, you can speak aloud to your guardian angel to ask them to be louder or quieter. The angels will hear your pleas and adjust the volume accordingly.

Heavenly Singing

Choirs of angels sing in the heavens, but sometimes humans are blessed to hear this singing here on earth. While it may not be a full choir playing through your speakers, some people can hear fleeting bits of this heavenly singing. If you’ve ever thought you heard singing only to realize there’s nothing there, it could be that you were blessed to hear your guardian angels sing.

Sweet Voices

In the days before modern psychiatry, hearing voices was not always considered a sign of mental disturbance. Hearing voices that bring peace and warmth to one’s soul is not something to fear. A guardian angel might speak to the person in their protection in a gentle voice or sweet whispers. If you hear your guardian angel, take a moment to bask in their presence. Try to speak to them, through internal prayer or even aloud. It is a moment of divine connection that not everyone is blessed to have, so it should be not dismissed.

Unspoken Thoughts

If you’ve ever had a thought that seemed to come out of nowhere or was the kind of thought you wouldn’t normally think, it could be your guardian angel trying to communicate. Guardian angels can guide you through life via psychic channels. They can use their non-corporeal powers to send you the thoughts you need to make the right decisions in life. These thoughts might also be simple acts of reassurance. Contemplation will allow you to tap into your soul and feel out the divine presence in your thoughts.

Soothing Scents

Guardian angels can make their presence known through all the senses of human perception. This includes the sense of smell. If you catch a whiff of a soft, floral scent or think that you smell perfume, this could be your guardian angel. Any pleasant scent that wafts over you and doesn’t seem to have a recognizable source can be a sign of your guardian angel.

Gentle Tingling Sensations


Have you ever experienced a sudden tingling sensation while simply thinking about something else? It could have been your guardian angel caressing your head or grazing you with a blessing hand. These tingling sensations are not the same as the hairs standing up on your arms or neck from fear. When a guardian angel passes a hand over you, the tingling sensation will be one of warmth or a light, cooling feeling. It will feel as soothing as a gentle breeze or a mother’s touch. Guardian angels can show their affection and signal their presence sometimes through tactile senses.

Divine Intervention

There are times in life when a person narrowly escapes what could have been a fatal event. These seemingly un-miraculous events are still something to look out for. It could be something like leaving the house two minutes later and avoiding a terrible car accident because of the delay. Or it could be the arrival of what seems like bad news but which later turns out to be a good thing.

Many people take these small events as signs of good luck. But they are actually signs of your guardian angel stepping in to protect you. Divine intervention is a certain sign of your guardian angel. Even without noticeable signs, your guardian angel can make their presence known by keeping you out of harm’s way.

These various signs can help you notice the presence of your guardian angel. But your guardian angel is always with you, no matter what. If you haven’t noticed before, it’s because you must learn what to pay attention to. By observing the small details in life, you’ll begin to notice the divine presence in all aspects of your life. And as you do, make sure to say thank you to your guardian angel. It will make the precious connection that much stronger.
