Angel’s Dream Meaning: From 27 Different Sources

Angels, spirits, demons and the like may feature in dreams either as symbols of blessing or warning or as symbols of parts of yourself which could lead you to greater fulfilment or, if neglected and scorned, could severely damage your chances of happiness.

(1) Is the angel in your dream a guardian angel, well disposed towards you and perhaps offering you help or protection? If so, see it as a propitious sign, or as a symbol of something in your (as yet) unconscious psyche that can remove obstacles and advance your progress towards fulfilment and happiness.

(2) Is the presence of the angel sinister and disquieting? If so, try seeing it as something within yourself that is going to erupt and cause trouble if you do not pay attention to it and allow it proper expression in your life.

(3) It is just possible that youi dream is a premonition: that the angel is the angel of death. But, although dreams are frequently clairvoyant in the root sense of the word (‘clear-sighted’), and contain intuitive insights, only rarely do they foretell the future in any physical sense. What they frequently do is to give warnings about the likely consequences of persisting in certain habits of behaviour or attitude.

It is most likely that the meaning of the angel in your dream is to be found along the lines of (1) or (2) above.

Angels are major archetypal energies that were here before us. Over many thousands of years, humankind has formulated these huge energetic sensations into specific beings that appear in many religious and spiritual disciplines. These beings can appear in dreams and are evidence of a highly evolved moment in your spiritual development. Angels are also symbolic of divine intervention in process, where miraculous turns of events can occur through being guarded from a high level.

Pay attention to the other symbols in the dream.

A dream of an angel almost always implies that the dream contains an important message that could have a major impact on your life.

There are many different kinds of angels.

Dreaming of a strong, commanding, six-winged seraph is a powerful sign that any difficulties occurring in your life will be overcome by your own strength and determination.

A smaller, gentler cherub is a bringer of God’s knowledge and wisdom, so dreaming of a cherub (not to be confused with a putto) hints at insights and revelations that are basically spiritual in nature but can be used to enrich your earthly life as well. Putti, which are the winged babies commonly and incorrectly referred to as cherubs, imply happy times ahead.

Dreaming of one of the archangels - Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, and Uriel - means that you are or soon will be doing God’s work, and the usual type of angel pictured on Christmas cards implies divine protection.

A very positive symbol implying success, happiness, and rewarding friendships ahead.

Nowadays, with a greater acknowledgement of the appearance of angelic figures, they are once again accepted as messengers of the gods – heavenly powers and enlightenment. Traditionally perceived as beings of light, their appearance in dreams indicates that we are seeking a spirituality and purity of being that goes beyond the mundane. In almost all religious belief angels stand as intermediaries between us and the divine. Archangels are a higher order of angels, each with their own responsibilities, and are more likely to appear if you are undertaking esoteric studies.

ANGEL ALONG - analysis of the dream

Ruth dreamed: At night I was on the roof of my house when I saw an angel flying. He was very handsome, measuring more than 6 feet, strong build, and long blond curls. The only outfit he was wearing was a long transparent tunic so I could tell he had a muscular body. I was impressed by his presence and in that moment, I felt a deep love. I never had that feeling in a dream. He remained suspended in the air, looking at me and smiling; and then he said, ‘Ruth, open the door. I want to come into your house.’ I woke up with a very pleasant tingling belly.”

The oneiric angels are often carriers of divine messages. For more than two years Ruth had kept her heart doors closed. Someone broke her heart and she was not receptive to love at all, so she was not able to fall in love again. At the time of this dream Joe had appeared in her life, and with him, a whole torrent of romantic feelings. However, she remained hard and contemptuous to him. She liked him a lot but was afraid to fall in love.

The angel asking for permission to enter her house represents her unconscious willing to accept love again. To fall in love in dreams reflects the subject’s desire to achieve a deep and sincere relationship.

To dream you see an angel or angels is very good, and to dream that you yourself are one is much better. But to speak with or call upon them is of evil signification» Yet if in secret they seem to declare something unknown, and which you do not understand or know, it denotes your becoming acquainted with persons of the first quality. And to dream that you see an angel fly over you or your house, signifies joy, consolation, benediction, and good news, and shows increase of honor and authority.

An angel or other spiritual helper can represent the idea of receiving guidance, support, or comfort (whether from a human or a spiritual source).

Angels are typically represented as winged beings who intervene at times of great need, or for the purpose of delivering a message of guidance or instruction from God to human beings. Therefore in dreams, angels represent your higher self-image and offer guidance from within, but they can also represent an evil being of similar powers: the fallen angle who has been led astray, or is leading other people astray. Bear in mind, too, that the dream may refer to someone in your life who is an angel because of the loving and nurturing qualities of character that they embody. One may also play the role of a fairy godmother or godfather by helping someone.

Saint / Angel / Perfect Being

Dreams that feature saints, angels, icons, bodhisattvas, immortals, avatars or any other perfect being that possesses a high level of spiritual development that lifts them above the imperfect human race all embody higher religious aspirations and positive qualities to which you can aspire. The same applies to symbols of transcendence and illumination that can appear in your dreams, such as halos, auras of light and angelic wings. Bear in mind that, depending on the other details of your dream, saints can also indicate martyrdom and extreme self- sacrifice, so you need to consider whether or not you are being exploited by someone in waking life.

Saints and angels are also traditionally considered to be divine messengers between the Supreme Being and humanity, so if you dream of them, what message are they trying to impart to you? Do you need to adopt a more moral stance in your waking life? Perhaps there is a moral issue you should not ignore; or is your unconscious telling you that you have righteousness on your side?

Your dream may be urging you to develop your spirituality.

If the meaning of your dream still remains unclear, try to meditate on it for a while since you may find that it leads you to new insights.

Angels are associated with dead children, so may play a comforting role at times of bereavement. In spiritual terms, angels also symbolize pure beings and freedom from earthly matters. Dark angels are said to be those who have not totally rejected the ego and earthly passions, and if images of them appear in your dream, you may be being warned about some kind of spiritual transgression.

If you dream of the Virgin Mary, this may be a symbol of the feminine ideal; the Virgin mother of Christ represents purity, compassion and motherly love.... saint / angel / perfect being dream meaning

Angel / Virgin

At first glance, it would seem that the angel and the virgin represent the Christian faith, but both actually predate it. The virgin was known as Isis to the Egyptians, Myrrha to the Greeks and Juno to the Romans. In each incarnation she may be seen standing on the crescent moon with stars circling her head. The virgin, in whatever guise she reaches your dreams, is considered a symbol of good fortune. Pay attention to what she is holding in her hands.

If she carries a ray of sunlight, this represents spiritual progress.

If she carries a chalice of dew, this may be seen as encouragement to reform your ways, and if she is playing a lyre, this suggests a period of calmness and introspection.

Angels are another form of celestial messenger sent to guard over us. To imagine one appearing is, as with the virgin, a symbol of spiritual protection and inspiration.

If angels give you advice in a dream, what they tell you should always be taken very seriously. Nowadays, with a greater acceptance of the appearance of angelic figures, they are once again accepted as messengers of enlightenment.

If you are religious, visions of an angel in your dream may be taken as validation of belief, but if you are not religious, you can take solace in the thought that you have a spiritual protector watching over you. Another interpretation suggests that dreaming of an angel suggests you are searching for this unconditional love and support in waking life, and the dream is urging you to find these qualities within yourself.
