Every angel sighting is a one-of-a-kind encounter.
How to Tell If You’ve Encountered an Angel in Physical Form
Angels are always near—sending us wise guidance, offering us healing energy, protecting us or fighting our battles, and sometimes simply being present with us through life’s ups and downs so we’re never alone. As I explain in my book Angel Insights, we know angels are near because we sense their presence, hear their voices in our inner ear or thoughts, dream about them, receive signs and synchronicities from them, see images they place in our mind’s eye, and are gifted with angelic insight into complex situations where there is no logical basis for our understanding. At times people even get proof that angels are near in one of the most powerful ways of all—angels appear before humans in physical form.
Why don’t angels always appear in physical form? The angels tell me that if they did, it would be too overwhelming and distracting for humans. Angels are really part of another dimension, called heaven, and simply don’t match the dense physical matter of earth and its inhabitants. And there are so many angels surrounding and watching over humans that they wouldn’t all be able to fit here amongst us in physical form. The short answer is: The veil between the dimensions of heaven and earth exists for a reason. Angels will appear in physical form (usually as humans) if they need to interact with you in a practical way to accomplish a clear objective (push your car out of a snowdrift when you’re stuck on an isolated road, or pay your grocery bill when you discover that you’re short on money in line). Angels will also appear in physical form (sometimes with wings) if they feel that being seen by you will increase your faith or peace of mind.
There are many ways an angel can appear in physical form. If you think you’ve seen an angel, the list below should help you clarify and better understand the experience. If you’ve never encountered an angel in physical form, read the list below carefully—you may have seen an angel and just don’t realize it! Most people see an angel in physical form very rarely, if ever. Some folks will go their whole lives having great faith and yet never see an angel. Just remember, angels are nondenominational beings who love and cherish each human equally. An angel’s love for you is unconditional and absolute—you can never do anything to change it. Whether you see an angel or not, angels are always near, always just over your shoulder!
Angels Appear as Light
Is it any wonder that angels sometimes appear to humans in physical form as light? Light can be seen but is still abstract in this dimension, an ethereal form of energy that matches the angel’s vibration (as opposed to other denser forms of matter like rocks, pencils or humans). Common ways that angels will appear to humans as a light source include: bursts of small, colored lights across your field of vision; glowing orbs; a constant stream of very bright white light which, like the sun, is difficult to look into directly. Angels could appear as small bursts of colored light at anytime, like when you’re sitting at your desk or making dinner (if you see this continually, get an eye exam to rule out any issues with your vision). Glowing orbs and streams of bright light are a touch more dramatic and showy, and will usually happen when you are alone and can give the experience your undivided attention!
Angels Appear as Shadows, Clouds and Mist
Ever swear you saw something out of the corner of your eye, then turned around and peered at that spot for a good look, only to see…nothing? You may have gotten a glimpse of an angel. Have you ever seen a cloud that looked just like an angel, maybe when you were down and needed a reminder of Spirit, or when you were feeling carefree and peaceful? Very likely it was an angel or group of angels forming their energy into a giant cloud in the sky to give the people below a reminder of the angels’ presence in our lives. Angels can also appear as what looks like mist—a white, gossamer substance that may take on the loose outline of a figure, perhaps near your bed when you wake up from a dream.
Angels Appear Wearing Wings
When people think of angels, they usually think of wings. Wings that are big and white and full of feathers. The stereotypical or traditional angel image is an angel with two enormous wings, wearing a long white robe with a golden belt. It’s important to note that I’ve spoken with hundreds of people who’ve seen angels of this description—and in all ethnicities (African, Inuit, Western European, Native American, Japanese). This imagery of the winged angel does not come from myth but experience: Sometimes angels really do appear to humans in this manner. It is the most disarming and alarming way an angel can appear to a human, which is why the angels in the Bible instruct humans to “fear not” when they encounter an angel with wings. I saw an angel with wings and a flowing robe once, and it is one of my most cherished—but also most shocking and terrifying—memories. While angels would never harm a hair on our heads, it is still very unsettling to be suddenly confronted with a winged being of great power and strength from another dimension. Why do angels take this form? Is this what angels “really” look like? The angels tell me they sometimes take this form because angels know this form is familiar to humans, so it’s an easy way for angels to identify themselves without a shadow of a doubt. Likewise this physical form is close to what a human looks like, but different enough that it registers as an angel to us.
Angels Appear as Humans
It is far more common for angels to appear in physical form as humans than wearing wings. Often an angel will appear as a human because the angel wants to offer you assistance—a good Samaritan who changes your tire, a fellow shopper who helps you pick the perfect outfit for a first date. And the best way for angels to work in public around other people unnoticed is in human form. Maybe an angel appeared to you as another patient in a hospital waiting room, a stranger who loaned you kind words or a hand to hold while you waited for news on a loved one’s condition or some test results of your own. Maybe an angel appeared as a stranger walking along the road by your farm just as some hay caught on fire, and with this stranger’s help you were able to get the fire under control before it spread to the barn. Angels who appear as humans usually disappear just as quickly as they arrive, and often without a trace. You might return to a restaurant where a kind waiter helped you settle your screaming toddler down a few days before, only to be told by the manager that there is no waiter working at this restaurant who fits that description. Or you might go to thank the woman who just rescued your husband from drowning, but when you turn around you see there is no sign of this stranger on the beach—not even a single footprint in the sand walking away. Angels who appear as humans often have very kind eyes and a peaceful, calming energy. They are remarkably helpful, and usually don’t say much though what they do say is very poignant.
