Doreen Virtue on signs from the angels | Signs of Angels

Ray Hemachandra interviews Doreen Virtue.

Ray: Doreen, what are some signs angels give to let people know they are present?

Doreen: One of the most common signs is seeing flickering or flashing lights with your physical eyes. You think you’re seeing Fourth of July sparklers or flashbulbs going off.

Some people have had their eyes checked by eye doctors and ruled out any organic causes. Flickering and flashing are what I call angel trails — the energy of angels moving across time and space to cause signs.

Another sign is finding feathers everywhere. You also can find coins, but often deceased loved ones are the beings leaving coins for you.

Deceased loved ones sometimes can act like angels in terms of saving you and guiding you.

But deceased loved ones technically are not angels, because they still have egos. So, their advice is only as pure as a human’s would be.

About The Author

Angels are a major part of my life. Seven years ago, I took an "AngelSpeake" workshop offered through the local Adult Education Program. As a ACP, Angel Certified Practitioner, I teach other people how to communicate with their Angels. I receive signs from the Angels. Most come in the form of feathers. I thought I was unique with these blessings. As it turns out, there are people all over the world confirming the same signs. Blessings to you and all you do, Karen


  1. Thank you, I seen these flickering lights in front of my eyes and was trying to blink and rub my eyes and they wouldn’t go away. I thought it was a sign but wasn’t sure. I have your book “How to hear your angels” and read it all the time. At this time i have reading about Chamuel and praying to him on an issue and everything is working out. So I am hoping it was my angel guides.

    • Hello!

      Welcome to Signs of Angels. I also enjoyed reading “How to Hear Your Angels”. Doreen is truly a gifted author/teacher. I posted one of her articles about feathers and signs on my blog She will not answer you here. I am here, though.

      Yes! Those lights are absolutely Angels. How wonderful for you to see them. It took me a long time communicating with my Angels to see the lights. You are blessed.

      It is amazing how life changes once you pull the God & Angels closer. The people at my job can see a drastic change in me. I have been there 14 years, and they have commented on the peacefulness that has come over me. Why not be peaceful knowing everything has perfect timing?

      I look forward to hearing from you again. Blessings to you and all you do,

  2. Hi I have also seen feathers for a while now and knew it was a sign the angels were near, but I did lose my faith for a bit my daughter lost her little girl at 6 months pregnant and had to deliver her and have a funeral it’s also been extremely tough on her as there is now another pregnancy in the family and there having a girl. On the day of the funeral there was a golden halo around the sun my husband is not religious at all and he was the one who pointed it out also the day we let gallons go at the cemetery the due date there was a golden halo around the sun again and when my daughter and her partner let their gallons go they went together and the ribbon wrapped around each other. They was all moving towards the hall my younger daughter commented that’s just the wind and the balloon just stopped. There have also been other signs I was thinking Keira would of been born now and the next minute the biggest butterfly flew in my car and stayed in there for about 5 minutes, also had a dream that was very clear and my pop that has passed said he was looking after her and that she was an angel baby. My daughter was also at a park a few weeks ago and a little girl asked if she could hop on the big swing with her my daughters face
    It up and they were on the swing for about 5 minutes when we left there was 2big white feathers, also when she first got pregnant my husband painted beautiful baby angels on the ceiling is it like we knew something before it happened.

  3. Hello Karen, I just found your site while looking up some things that have been happening to me. I’ve always had a strong intuition but I’ve recently had a few experiences that have been different. I have been feeling the presence of what I believe are angels around me. My ‘knowing’ usually comes in the form of feelings and thoughts but today I had an experience where I could actually see something with my physical eyes. At first I took off my glasses and rubbed my eyes but it didnt go away!! I’ve read here about people receiving actual feathers from the angels but my ‘vision’ was of feathers sort of floating around before me..they seemed to be grey in color. Do you have any ideas of what this could be or mean? I got a very strong sense that something was there (chills and tingling). Thank you for your work here!
