“The Universe sets out little signposts for us along the way, to confirm that we’re on the right path.”
~ Michelle Maisto
This week’s energies are supportive of connection, communication, signs, breakthroughs and synchronicities (you can read more about that here).
But how do you ask for a sign?
I recommend that you ask only once, and then satisfy yourself with the answer as it appears to you.
Here are some things that you can try:
Shuffle your oracle or tarot cards, offer up a small prayer that whatever you do be for your Highest Good, and then shuffle the deck again. As you’re shuffling, ask your question . Say it out loud or hold it as a thought in your head. Either will work.
Choose one card. How you choose is up to you. Split the deck. Fan them out. Top or bottom. Dive right in. There is no right or wrong. Then really look at the card. Don’t use the book or the ‘proper’ meaning. We are being intuitive here, people! What stands out for you in the picture? What thoughts and ideas do the images provoke? What is the answer that comes to you? Trust that. Don’t ask again.
Ask for your Guide to appear as an animal or some other living thing, some sort of motif that you will associate with them and with their presence.
Ask to see a specific image or thing, as acknowledgement of a question, or in answer to it. Perhaps you are driving and you ask to see a red Kombi van if the answer is yes. Or you ask to see a particular type of bird or something else you’ll recognise as that sign…
Ask, and then expect an answer. Perhaps the answer will be a message on a billboard, a line from a book, a voice on the radio, the words in a song. The message will stand out for you somehow, and have a special meaning just for you.
Angels are often associated with white feathers. Guides are often associated with other coloured or patterned feathers. I have found feathers during some of the most difficult times in my life, and have felt reassured by them showing up for me.
When I sense my Great Aunt’s presence I smell roses. When my Grandmother is near, I smell or even see gardenias. A friend smells tobacco smoke when her father is with her. Sometimes loved ones will create a breeze where there was none, stop or start a clock, or move something. Whatever they do will make sense to you, based on your relationship with them.
Sometimes God creates magnificent signs, for no reason other than to help us remember the love and miracles in our world…
And sometimes it’s well-meaning friends who help us know what’s in store for us on the road in life…
When the road ahead is uncertain, when you need to know you’re supported, when you are looking for answers – it’s okay to ask for a sign. But do it once, and trust what you get!
