how to see signs
I’ve been getting a few “signs” lately. I don’t know what you make of signs…
Me, I think that patterns emerge as we go about life and they bank up – get blocked or layer up. A bit like stuff swirling down a drain; the stuff forms a bit of clump and we need to twirl it with a stick – give it our attention – so it can loosen and continue down the drain.
Everything is a sign, some are just louder than others. Some patterns bank up and they tell us we need to pay attention. Turn a different way, gently move along a different path.
I find signs come in threes for me. I will hear the same name crop up three times. The same name of a book. I’ve started to experiment with making a bold move on the third strike. My meditation teacher’s name came up three times. Three different people mentioned him in passing.. Finally I took the plunge and went and saw him. Best thing I’ve done in a long time. Recently I broke my foot running, got stuck in a swamp while running…I’m waiting for my third sign!
There’s nothing woo-woo about this. There doesn’t have to be. All of life works to patterns and attraction and clumping together. We can either flow with it, ignore it or resist it.
Anyway…I’d kept this from DailyOm a while back…it might spark something in you on a Friday. Slow down. Take a look around. Feel if there’s a sign in front of you. Much love to you all….
The universe can often relay messages to us through signs. Often, we are too busy to stop and consider what may or may not be a sign. We may ask the universe for guidance, yet fail to recognize the sign it sends us in response. Learning the subtle language of signs can help you interpret the guidance the universe sends your way. We all have been blessed with a connection that allows the universe to communicate directly with us. To be able to understand the information relayed over that connection, however, it is necessary that we learn to pay attention and know what to look for.
To see and correctly interpret a sign, you must open your heart and mind to the universe and invite its guidance into your life. Many of us are blind to the signs we receive because we expect angels or our spirit guides to speak to us in a booming voice and tell us exactly what we need to hear. But signs are usually of this earth and therefore easier to encounter. A song lodged in your mind or a number that seems to pop up everywhere you look after you‚ve asked the universe for guidance can both be signs. Signs may come through the animal world, from strangers, or jump out of a book in the form of an insightful passage. A sign may be a direct answer to one of your questions. Other signs may point you in the right direction, warn of impending difficulties, or show you a different way. If you want the universe to send you a sign, tell it that you are ready and willing to accept its guidance.
Not everything you hear or see will be a sign. If you are receptive and patient, however, the signs you receive will become easier to recognize. It is important to listen to your intuition. A sign can mean many things to different people, and only you can decipher a sign‚s meaning is for you. As you practice reading the signs and following their guidance, the universe will send more of them your way.
