6 Signs the Angels Are Near
At the beginning of 2016, a few days after I began reading a book called Anna, Voice of the Magdalenes, my husband came home from a business trip and announced out of the blue that he wanted to vacation in the South of France.
I was speechless. I ran upstairs without saying a word, grabbed the book, returned downstairs, and pointed at the map of ancient Gaul (present-day France) that was in the front of the book. I shared with him that I had been learning of some powerful sacred places in the South of France while he was away. We were both awed by the coincidence, especially since my husband is not one to voluntarily take a vacation. A few months later, we boarded a plane and were on our way on this Divinely guided journey.
When we arrived at our hotel in Carcassonne, France, I commented on the significance of our room number: 111. Repetitive number sequences (111, 222, 333 or any number that you see consistently) are one of the ways the angels send messages.
Meaning of the angel number 111: “Your thoughts are manifesting instantly, so keep your mind-set focused upon your desires.”
After spending the next day touring the medieval town of Carcassonne (which, it happens, was the inspiration for the Disney’s Magic Kingdom Castle), we continued to Couiza, where we had booked a few nights stay at Chateau des Ducs de Joyeuse, an old castle that had been converted to a hotel (it was so cool!).
When we arrived at the hotel reception desk, we were informed that the standard room we had reserved was not available (moment of panic), but that they had upgraded us to a junior suite (moment of joy). After handing us the key, my husband started to chuckle. It wasn’t until we were in the hallway on the way to our room that he said “look at our room number”…. Room 111.
We had only been in France for a little more than a day and had already received two angel messages, plus the abundance gift with our room upgrade. I was overcome with the feelings of joy and gratitude and wondered what else we were to encounter on this unexpected "pilgrimage."
The next day we set out in our car to a nearby village called Alet-les-Bains. We had planned to tour the local historic abbey, but found it closed when we arrived. At a loss for how to fill the rest of our day, we wandered through the peaceful and empty streets of this sleepy village to a place called the “Galerie des Anges” (The Gallery of Angels), which was listed in our tour book as an art gallery, boutique, and tea salon.
I was unprepared for what greeted us as we entered this place. I had imagined a tea shop with lots of tacky angel figurines. Instead, we entered into a beautiful sanctuary with some of the most stunning angel art I have ever witnessed. It was like stepping into another dimension.
We fell into a meditative silence as we enjoyed visiting with each of the angels represented by the paintings – The Angel of Safekeeping, The Angel of Abundance, The Angel of Creativity, The Angel of the Resurrection, The Angel of Innocence, and more.
The rest of our trip continued to be filled with awe and wonder and is an experience I will never forget. As with many of the wondrous trips I have taken in the last decade, I was brought to the land unexpectedly, and with an open heart and mind, I discovered magic, inspiration, and healing that has changed me forever.

Witnessing Your Own Signs From Above
The angels are ready to provide us with signs of their love and support in every moment. Angel signs often come in response to our prayers or request for help. These signs are usually out of the ordinary, repetitive, and time to coincide with our prayers.
Six Signs the Angels Are Near:
Repetitive number sequences – 111, 222, 303, or any sequence that repeats for you. You can do a web search for the meaning of each of these numbers and get some great insight into what they may represent for you.
Clouds in the shape of angels or hearts are physical signs of angelic support and love.
Feathers in unexpected places are the ultimate “hello” from heaven. Feathers are a sign that you are being watched over and are on the right track.
Coins in unexpected places are another sign of angelic presence. Pay attention to the feelings and thoughts you have when you find the coin. Most people intuitively “know” what the coin represents.
The angels love to communicate through music. Songs that come on repeatedly or that you hear just after you have prayed and asked for help are another powerful way heavens sends messages.
Rainbows are a sign of love, support, and protection from above. Rainbows also sometimes signify that a loved one in heaven is safe and well.
Bonus: Dragonflies represent spiritual transformation and growth. When you see this symbol, know that you are on the right path.
While the signs above may seem ordinary, it is their appearance at seemingly synchronistic times, as well as the feeling you get when you witness them, that confirms they are sent from the angels.
Open your heart and be willing to receive them, and you will begin to notice the angels in your life more and more every day.
