If the angel is coming to visit you it usually means that you feel that you have been good lately. You have probably committed a good deed or you have done something that you thought was worthy of special recognition. When the angel came to you did you remember what he or she said? Was it something that would be pleasing to you or were they bringing good news? Well, you deserve it because you have been very good lately.
Another thing that an angel would represent in your dreams is a form of protection. The angels would be your protectors from the evil things that haunt this world. This is the dream that you might have when you are very worried about something, going to a new place or experiencing something new. This dream would help you feel a lot more secure and does its job. This is your mind’s way of telling you to calm down and not get so excited over something that might not end up being so bad. Instead go in with courage and be aware that you are protected.
Alternatively a dream of an angel could mean the complete opposite of good intentions, if you have been evil towards people or harboring negative intentions then the angel might show up as a way of bringing you back to reality and letting you know that your actions really have been hurting people. You need to take responsibility for you actions and not only that but you also need to recognize how your actions could be hurting others. Make sure not to do anything evil again, or the angels will plague your dreams reminding you of how unworthy you are of kindness. You will probably know which one of these interpretations applies to you most though.
If you have recently been trying to reach a new level of enlightenment with your religion, particularly if that religion is Christianity, then the angels might be showing up as an indication that you have finally reached that level that you were trying so hard to reach before. The angels are very important spiritual symbols and can be representative of the fact that even if you are not on your road to becoming more familiar with your lord and savior, perhaps you should be. Though if not of the Christian persuasion these images could just as easily be interpreted in a more general sense.
An angel is seen as a great example of all that is good. Though, despite the fact that the angel is a sign of good in and of itself, it does not necessarily mean that your dream has an intrinsically good message when you dream about them. Remember that angels will even show up for you if you have been bad because they have an interest in saving your soul even if you do not. They could be an indicator of good just as much as they are an indicator of evil.
