7 Signs of an Earth Angel

I enjoy exploring ideas about who we are and why we are here, and I'm pretty sure at least one of my kids is a 'crystal child'.

If you feel a little bit different, as if you don’t quite fit into mainstream society, then there’s a chance you might be an earth angel. Weird, huh? What exactly is that anyway? Well, what it isn’t is some sort of divine, mystical being with wings. An earth angel is a human being, but a very special one. Read on to see if you are an earth angel.

Shelley, an Earth Angel

When Shelley was a teenager, she felt distanced from her classmates. She had friends and she wasn’t bullied or anything, but she found she wasn’t interested in the things they were interested in. She couldn’t really understand why what she thought was important in life barely touched them at all. She seemed to notice things that they didn’t: the breeze that caressed her skin as she walked to school, the quality of the air, the sounds of birds, the way the sidewalk changed color when it rained. Her friends didn’t pay any attention as they gossiped about boys, and constantly checked their phones.

As she grew older, she began to understand that she was different. That her priorities weren’t the same as most people she knew. She loved to spend time with her grandmother, and older people generally. She also found joy in playing with young children. Animals, also, gravitated to her. Shelley didn’t know it then, but she was (and is) an earth angel.


Seven Signs of an Earth Angel

Here’s what to look out for in your earth angel. She’s usually, but not exclusively, a woman. And that’s because the traits of an earth angel are often feminine: empathy, a well-developed intuition, and compassion are generally seen as female characteristics. However, of course, there are earth angels of all genders.

1. You See the Best in People

You know that all people have the potential to be the best they can be. And that’s what you see. You know that each individual on the planet is simply trying to lead their most beneficial life. You look for that spark of goodness in every person - and they usually show it to you.

2. You Enjoy Your Own Company

While you enjoy interacting on a one-to-one basis, you also love being alone. You understand that you are your own best friend and you don’t need anyone to reflect your divinity back to you. You find it deep within your soul. You love to explore your relationship with your Source, and you love the connection you feel to the universe.


3. Children and Animals Love You

It’s just one of those things. At grown-up parties, you can be found amusing the kids in the playroom. They are so much more real than the dress-up peacock party-goers. Your connection with children feels genuine and your inner being loves to get down and party with the inner beings of the children. It’s the same with animals. A dog in distress will calm beneath your touch. A feral cat will approach you and make you her own.

4. You Expect Little and Appreciate Much

You are thrilled by the smallest things in life. You don’t need a collection of material possessions, but when someone gifts you a little something, you are happy and appreciative. You see the whole world as your gift. From early morning birdsong to the deep restfulness of your bed, life is a string of happy moments.

5. You Believe We Live Many Lives

You feel in your heart that the human experience is a temporary sojourn from ‘home’. That you are here to learn important soul lessons and that you can’t really get it wrong. And if you do, there will always be another opportunity. You think that the purpose of your life on Earth is be as joyful as possible, and if you can’t always feel joy, then you can do your best to help others feel better.

6. Magic Is Real

You know that magic happens all the time. Eventually science might catch up but you know that one of the tools available to us is that we can manipulate energy. That our emotions and feelings have the power to attract a good life. That whatever we are thinking is reflected right back at us in our environment and the people around us. You may start slow, but as you grow older you become adept at guiding your thoughts to wherever they will do the most good.

7. You Cultivate Serenity

While you like to get excited, you also know that a serene and peaceful center is what creates a beautiful life. You are not a worrier. You are not a controller. You are an 'allower'. You know that most problems will be dealt with if a little time is allowed to caress them into a resolution. You know your intuition will suggest any action you need to take. You know that people will play out their dramas and you don’t have to be involved other than offering a sympathetic ear and a cup of tea. Serenity lives in you. Peace wraps around you.


Can Anyone Become an Earth Angel?

Yes, anyone can become an earth angel, but it often requires a change of attitude, beliefs and behavior. Some people can manage it, others can only aspire to it. It involves inner changes and shifts. It requires the ability to let go of the past, not worry about the future and embrace the now moment. It means trusting that everything works out in the end. It means knowing that death is not a negative event. It means being able to see the perfection in everyone. It doesn’t mean that you have to become an altruistic, do-gooder. You can be yourself. You can be authentic. You don’t have to put up with anyone taking advantage of you.

How To Live as an Earth Angel

You don’t have to change your life on the surface in any way. It is more about becoming aware that life has a deeper meaning and most of that meaning is based on joy and looking for the positive aspect of any person and situation.

An earth angel loves to spend time in nature, likes to create their perfect ‘nest’, enjoys tranquility and solitude. Having said that, they also love to engage with others for short periods. They love to learn all the time. They are not afraid of facing up to their own shortcomings, yet they are happy to ignore those of others, focusing only on the good.

Earth angels are excellent ‘forgivers’. They understand that people aren’t the things they do and that often forgiveness is a short-cut to understanding and harmony. They also know to extend forgiveness to themselves.

You are on Earth such a short time, be an angel while you are here.

        Great descriptions. I enjoyed reading through this. I can think of someone I know who fits the image of an Earth Angel.

        Something more important came to my mind as I was reading this: Your description of an Earth Angel goes to show what we all should aspire to become.

        Great article! I liked learning about what an Earth Angel is. I know some and wonder if I am in an odd sense. I think those signs are great ideals to have for life. Thanks for a great article to get this Sunday morning off with a smile while going on a new adventure.
