You have angels who are with you, guiding you, and looking out for you from behind the scenes.
With a little bit of technique, by setting the intention, and with some practice and persistence, you can learn to start seeing your angels with your own eyes.

Resources to Start Seeing Angels
Firstly, keep in mind that angels are spiritual beings. While angels can and will appear in physical form by standing right in front of you, this is much rarer than their appearing energetically.
When angels do appear energetically (as they often do), you can see them by having a relaxed point of focus, looking through the air before you, between the particles of light to see your angels with your intuitive mind and through your spiritual sight.
Before we go over the specifics on how you can start seeing angels now, I just want to point out that it’s very likely that you’ve already seen an angel… Seriously!
Have you ever seen something out of the corner of your eye? Perhaps a glow of light around someone, or near you, and you turned to see what it was and then it was gone? This very well may have been an angel.
Seeing angels as orbs or sparkles of light is very common for children, and adults who are in a relaxed, and uplifted vibration.
But what about seeing angels in flowing gowns, with wings, halos and radiating with a brilliant light? Is this possible?
The answer is yes! Angels will appear energetically before as you have seen them in artwork. They will often appear as you expect them to, or in a way which you can recognize and relate to.
There really is a great variety in what angels look like, from playful childlike cherubs to nine foot tall light beings radiating with a brilliant white light of unconditional love and Divine frequency. Angels really do not have a specific gender, but will often appear as male or female, so that you can relate to them.
Sometimes angels appear with wings, but not always. They don’t actually need wings to fly, but will sometimes appear with wings, representing their ability to carry out the Divine will, and so that you will recognize them. I’ve seen angels with large beautiful wings, small fairy like wings, and with no wings at all, but simply radiating light from within.
Angels are energetic beings, and so they may appear to look a bit different on separate occasions, depending on what they’re helping you with. You may see flashes of light, swirls of color, or sparkles in the air as your angels move about.
If you’ve been wanting to see angels for a while, and it’s not been happening… You may have past or present fear which is creating a blockage.
Your angels know you, and they can see if appearing before you will scare you. If this is the case, they won’t appear visibly until you’re ready.
Before continuing, take a moment to look within, and see if you can identify any fear which is presently stored in your being. Where is it? What does this energy vibrate like? Can you imagine it out in front of you? Try spinning the energy in the opposite direction, imagining it getting smaller and smaller as it releases into the light.
Here are a couple more resources to help you let go of any fear surrounded to seeing angels.
Release Fear & Embrace Love ~ Meditation with Archangel Michael
Your angels do not want to frighten you, and so even if you’re not seeing them when you call them in, they’re there. By releasing fear from your mind and body (ask your angels to help with this), you can quickly get past this energetic blockage and get onto seeing your angels.
I started seeing angels and other entities as a child, and then again in my teens. On both occasions this really scared me, and so I blocked the ability until I worked through the fear and once again learned to visually experience their presence.
Start with calling in the light. Imagine bright white light is all around you. The white light cleanses, uplifts, and protects your energy.
Imagine an orb of white light all around you, glowing like the sun is within your heart chakra and extending out around you.
This energy of the light attracts high vibrational beings like angels, ascended masters, and spirit guides who want to serve and assist you. The light also repels self serving, lower vibrational entities, which may just want to scare, confuse or otherwise mess with you. When contacting the realms of spirit, always call in the light first for this reason… It aligns your point of attraction with the high vibrational beings of unconditional love who are beneficial for you to connect with.
Once you’ve done this, set your intention.
Think of your Angels… Then think or say, Guardian Angels, or Archangel Michael, please come into this present moment and stand in front of me, and stay there, so I can clearly see you now.
Relax your mind, release any lingering fear, thought, or doubt, and unfocus your eyes so that you enter into a daydreaming type state… looking before you in somewhat of a blank stare.
Soften your gaze and breathe. Relax, and continue to gently gaze before you as your physical eyes relax and your minds eye opens.
Look into the air before you… Look through the air for what is contained between the particles. See the “living air” and the energy of the air swirling around before you with your intuitive and psychic sight.
Keep with this until you begin to see the movement and energy of the air before you. If you’re not seeing it, try again in the evening, late at night or in the super early morning hours when the veil is thinner.
Try this in different rooms, outside, etc. It’s sometimes easier to see angels when it’s dark out (as they tend to blend in with direct sunlight). Practicing this with dim or ambient light may also help.
Don’t worry if it doesn’t seem to work at first, keep practicing. Refocus on your intention, and soften your focus, concentrating on seeing through your minds eye.
As you gaze into the air before you… Notice through as a slight outline of your angel begins to appear. Keep breathing and stay relaxed and within your state of relaxed focus you’ll be able to notice more and more detail about the magnificent angelic being before you.
You may catch a glimpse of your angel, get excited, and shift your point of focus so that they quickly disappear. Don’t worry, just return to your relaxed, daydream like gaze and wait for the angel to appear again.
You may also look for a whitish glow, which often surrounds angels. Look for sparkles of light, and once you see the glow of the angel, shift your focus slightly to look for the outline of an angel within the glow. Once you see the outline, focus on the details of the angelic being standing before you. What is their clothing like? Do they have wings? Or are they simply radiating light from within?
With practice and persistence you can learn to see your angels with more and more detail.
Angels have appeared to me as energetic beings looking much like humans, but with wings, flowing gowns, and shining light from within. I’ve also seen them appear quite simply as orbs, geometric patterns, or flashes of energy.
Just be aware and pay attention, trusting that the angels will appear before you in whatever form will most serve you now.
Don’t strain your eyes to try to see the angels, its from a relaxed point of focus from your physical eyes, that your minds eye can kick in and fill in the gaps energetically so that you can see beyond the veil.
As you strive to see your angels, remember to ask your angels to help! They’re happy to help you with anything, including learning to sense, know, and experience their presence and in helping you to learn to see your angels, and the angels with other people.
“Angels, please stand before me now. Help me to clearly see, know, and experience your presence, for the highest and greatest good, and so it is. Thank you.”
Practice with this technique, and you just may surprise yourself with how quickly you can learn to see your angels. You may ask for one to stand before you, and when you start to look, there are three! Thank your angels for showing up, and know they’re always happy to serve and assist.
If you don’t see them right away, don’t worry. You can do this! It may just take a little more time and practice. Try again before you go to sleep, or even better give it a shot when you wake up in the middle of the night at 3am, and your ego mind is still half asleep.
Many people have the idea that seeing angels is similar to seeing other people, except angels of course have ornate wings and halos… The reality however, is that the natural state of angels is pure spirit, high vibrational frequency, and light.
For this reason, seeing angels is usually more like seeing flashes of light, orbs, or streaks of luminescent color, than it is like seeing your friend standing across the room from you.
For most people, angels present themselves in even more abstract ways using symbols and other signs.
Angels can however take many forms, and yes, they do sometimes manifest as physical beings, and other times they appear with halos and wings.
Angels may also look to you like a beautiful person surrounded with a glowing light, they may appear as a light orb, as shimmering light, as a glowing outline, or they may simply manifest in your awareness as high vibrational Love energy.
Common ways to see and perceive angels include in a meditative state, as an intellectual understanding, in an internal vision, through peripheral vision, in a dream or in the hypnogogic state (that state between being awake and sleeping).
To give you an example, I see Archangel Metatron as the most beautiful field of purple, gold and pink energy, spiraling geometric forms, and Divine Presence. I started seeing Metatron in this way internally, while meditating or channeling, but with continued awareness, I now notice Metatron in plain sight, and often out of the corner of my eye.
You can see angels… Sometimes it’s just a matter of knowing where to look! The angels have often told me: “Look for us in nature.“
This really works!
Go to a beautiful place in nature, where you can relax and spend a little while. Ask your angels to enter into your present space, and to help you to tune into their presence.
Next, gaze softly into a grove of trees, a field of flowers, a flowing river, or a clear blue lake… Relax, and just be present admiring the beauty of nature all around you. A soft non-attached gaze is key.
Be aware, breathe, and pay attention. Do you notice a little shimmer out of the corner of your eye, is there a mental impression of an angel which appears almost like a memory, or maybe sparkles of light suddenly seem to dance across the grass, or through the trees?… You just saw angels!
This may seem too subtle at first, and you may want more… Keep practicing, raising your vibration, paying attention and through this seeing and knowing the presence of your angels will become more clear, real and vivid.
As mentioned above, angels are incredibly high vibrational beings of light and love.
By tuning into the energy of another person, or even yourself, you can develop the ability to tune into their angels by learning to sense these higher levels of vibration.
With permission from the person you will be tuning into (this can be conscious, or you can simply ask their Higher Self for permission) become aware of their energy. You may want to softly gaze at them, or focus just beyond them so they’re in your peripheral vision.
You can also close your eyes, and tune into the person with your inner sight through your mind’s eye.
If you want to do this for yourself close your eyes, and imagine you’re viewing yourself from an outside perspective… You can also stand in front of a mirror, and softly gaze above your right shoulder.
Relax, and softly focus on the person you’re tuning into (or yourself), and ask the angels present to help you see them.
When you do this, pay attention to what you perceive. Is there a lightness of energy above their shoulders? This is where their guardian angels will likely be present?
Do you notice a lower vibrating but still spiritual presence of someone standing behind them? This is likely a deceased loved one…
In addition, here are some of the types of spiritual beings the person you are tuning into may have with them and where you will likely notice the presence of these angels, guides, deceased loved ones and spiritual beings.
Fairies, Nature Angels, Elementals, Driads, and Devas – Around the feet or legs.
Pets, Power Animals, Mythical Animals – Around the legs or waist.
Deceased Loved Ones and Ancestors – Around the midsection. Deceased loved ones often will often stand behind you.
Spirit Guides – Can be found in a circle around your center.
Guardian Angels – Over the right and left shoulders or near the third eye.
Archangels and Ascended Masters – Directly overhead, usually above the crown chakra.
Star Beings – Way above the person… People with a star connection often have a type of silver or light cord extending up into the cosmos or toward a ‘mother ship’.
There are many types of angels you can see, feel, and experience. You may come across warrior angels, protection angels, teaching angels, guidance angels, nature angels, guardian angels, angels of wisdom, abundance, creativity, joy, inspiration, passion, laughter and so many more. There are even angels whose purpose is to watch over certain locations, people, projects, and even ideas.
When you are finished scanning the energy of another person, be sure you consciously disconnect your energy from his or hers. A sweep of your hand across your chakras is a simple way to do this. Then imagine a waterfall of light cleansing your energy, and theirs, and ask your angels to return all your energy into your being cleansed and purified, and any energy belonging to the other to be restored cleansed and purified.
Take some notes and what you saw, perceived and experienced, and know that again with practice, persistence, and time… Seeing angels in nature, around others, and around you will come more easily, naturally and clearly with practice.
You truly have everything you need to see, experience and connect with your angels… But it does take practice!
