How To Ask For Signs


Let me start this by saying I have no idea if this is The Way to get more signs in your life. This is what I do and it works for me; it is one way.  I have a sneaking feeling it will work for you too.  Make this prayer part of your practice!
Every morning I sit on a cushion and meditate for as long as I can. I set a timer. Some days it’s set for 20 – 40 minutes, other days it’s 6 minutes. I make a promise to myself that I don’t leave the house without a few collected, calm breaths on the cushion. It’s the perfect time to go, “Holy wow, I am alive and this day is about to start. Let’s go.”  I cap off the mediation with this prayer (which is a variation from a prayer given to me by one of my favorites Thomas John)…

By the powers of the North, South, East, West;

By all the powers above and all the powers below, the circle is cast;

I am between the worlds.  What happens to me affects me and all the worlds. So let it be.

I call upon my spirt guides*, my angels* and my higher self to be with me today.

I ask them to communicate with me in ways that I will understand and I will communicate with them in ways that they will understand.

My intention is to move through this day with an open and loving heart, to myself and others. So let it be.



What To Look For

Look for repeating numbers like 11:11am, 2:22pm, 3:33pm… or similar. Keep an eye out for “weird” coincidences like thinking of a long lost friend and then they text or call out of nowhere. Make note if you see repeated symbols like always seeing your favorite exotic animal or something random and specific like a red balloon. The symbol has to have some significance to you, perhaps the red balloon was a gift you loved for your 5th birthday. The sign could also be a wish fulfilled like finally finding a purple, flannel onesie… on sale!  A friend recently shared with me that she drove a half hour to get a coffee, ordered a latte and then realized she didn’t have her wallet. The barista said, “No problem. Some stranger offered to pay for all the coffees today.” Of all the days, how wonderful it was that that was the day she forgot her wallet!  This was a sign that she is provided for.  This was perfect for her because a fear of scarcity was a worry she has had nagging at her, as of late.  Look for the message that the sign is trying to communicate; these are often affirmations that your fears or worries should not stifle you. The Universe wants you to know that you are being heard and held.  Ask for communication and then keep your eyes and ears open!

*If you have a hard time understanding or believing in “spirit guides” and “angels”, no worries. These names just represent energy and all energy is connected anyway so the request for communication will still be heard and answered no matter the form or name you use to identify it.
