While angels are known to be a rare sighting, or sometimes even considered a myth, there is a chance you may have met one at least once in your lifetime. They won’t really spread their wings and fly about amidst people but they are likely to disguise themselves as regular human beings when they’re among us.
Several occultists believe that angels are reincarnated enlightened human beings. However, they are more likely to be celestial entities that have descended from a species entirely different to humans. They are often tough to comprehend due to this.
Angels come in several forms. And they mostly appear before us to send us a message when we’re stuck or give us a little boost when we need it the most. The message descends from a divine entity and is sent to us through messenger angels.
While they are mostly known to be a part of Christian mythology and folklore, angels exist in ancient texts from all over the world. For instance, in Ancient Greek religions, Goddess Iris is said to be a winged deity who delivers the messages of Olympus to humans.
Angels often appear to people in human or animal form and they always come with a specific purpose or message. They also come in non-tangible forms — not appearing in front of us, but doing what they’re meant to nonetheless.
While you may resign to the idea that your life is devoid of angels, there is in fact at least one angel in your life disguised in human, animal or any other form. And chances are you’ve already encountered them once for sure. Here are a few signs that someone you’ve come across is an angel.
Change of heart
When you’re in a deep, dark, and hopeless place, there often comes a stranger in your life whose mere presence changes everything and brightens your day. They may not go out of their way, but their presence is often enough to get you out of the trouble you’re in.
When you’re stuck in a rut and bogged down by routine, you suddenly come across an entity whose presence inexplicably inspires you. They’re there to remind you of your purpose in life and just a smile from them is enough to give you hope that life is worth living, and tomorrow will be a better day.
Activate your senses
Angels help activate all your senses. When you see them, they direct you towards doing something that helps you stop and smell the roses — literally and figuratively. Through them, we rediscover what it’s like to be human.
Feel young again
Sometimes in life, there comes a person who makes you feel young again. Whether by complimenting you and making you feel butterflies or inspiring you to loosen up and have more fun in life, this person reminds you that youth is a state of mind.
Sometimes one goes through a rare moment in life when one finds a stranger one can confide in. It may be someone who’s going through something similar to you or just someone you randomly met and instantly connected with. You feel light after talking to this person and they truly lessen your burden by being the best confessors and ‘confessees’ with no strings attached.
Angels are inherently healers. In their presence, we can feel a boost in physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual health.
Angels have the ability to manipulate time and space and can make you notice what they want you to see. Whether by their own example or by directing you towards a situation pertaining to your own, in their presence you get inspired to be true to yourself and rid yourself of all judgment. They inspire you to accept yourself as you are and be happy in your skin.
