The universe has many ways of communicating with us, but in most cases, we have to be open and receptive to these messages in order to receive them properly. Chances are good that the universe has sent you signs throughout your life, but if you weren't tuned in to these messages, you might have missed them. This is because most of the time the answers are encrypted. If you are not open to all forms of communication, you might walk right by these messages oblivious that you are being spoken to. Thus, when you ask the Universe for help, you should always be open to ALL methods of communication for your answers.
Interpreting Signs from the Universe
When you're open and accepting, you'll find that the universe has a wealth of information to share with you. Slow down and let meaningful signs sink in.
While some signs are obvious, others will make an impression despite the fact that you don't understand the full meaning. You might see a cardinal outside your window several days in a row and feel that he's there for an important reason. Researching the meaning of cardinals will help you understand that this bird can be a sign of new love and hope. The bird may also act as a representative of a loved one who has passed.
Other signs appear as synchronicities. At first glance it may seem at first that a coincidental series of events are random occurrences. However, if we appreciate that most everything happens in our lives for a reason, we can begin interpreting signs from the Universe. For example, say you’re wondering if the relationship you’re in is right for you, and when you next turn on the radio, or TV, there is a song or show pertaining to either love or a break-up currently playing - that would be your answer. Or, you notice a billboard while driving with a sign reading the words BELIEVE or TRUST in giant letters, which also serves as an answer to your question. The same can be said if you are considering taking a trip but unsure as to whether to do it or not, and upon expressing your doubts on this trip, you receive an invitation or financial gift making it possible. That is another example of a sign because by receiving the invitation or gift, you are being told to go on the trip and have a great time.
How to Ask the Universe for a Sign
Asking the universe for signs directly can help you get the information that you're after. Whether you want confirmation on the new home that you're buying or you need to know if your relationship is on the right path, there are ways that you can reach out to the universe for valuable information.
Let Go of Control. If you want to receive genuine signs from the universe, you must let go of the urge to try and control things. In many situations, there's a particular outcome that you're hoping for. As a result of confirmation bias, you're more likely to see strong signs that seem confirm what you want but miss the more cryptic ways that the Universe actually speaks. To truly get meaningful signs from the universe, you must let go of your sense of control and relax in the knowledge that the universe will take care of you, even if it does so in an unexpected way.
Speak Directly to the Universe. Asking the Universe for a sign when you have a specific question can be as simple and straightforward as making a direct request. For example, if you’re wondering if the person you’re seeing is right for you, ask the universe for a sign that he is the one. If you're naturally intuitive and skilled at deciphering signs, you don’t need to qualify how the sign should appear - be open to the mystery of it.
If you're afraid you'll miss the sign, make your request more specific. For example, if you're looking for a new apartment you might ask for yellow flowers in connection with the right place. You could see these outside the building, in the interior decor, or even on a brochure, but those flowers will help you find a promising place.
- Learn to Recognize Signs, Symbols, and Synchronicity. The universe can give you signs in many ways. Some common signs are animals, numbers, or songs. A true sign from the universe will capture your attention and make a significant impression on you. Practice mindfulness so you'll be more receptive to signs. If you're lost in worries about the past or concerns over the future you could miss what's in front of you. If you're having trouble finding signs in your daily life, a tarot reading can invite the universe to communicate with you through symbolism.
Synchronicity and symbolism are the language of the universe, and these are available when we are open to listening. When we trust that there is a bigger picture, and more to our experience than meets the eye, we will start seeing signs from the Universe everywhere. When we’re truly paying attention to signs and synchronicity, our lives begin to flow in miraculous ways because we "hear" the answers from the Divine.
If you’re having trouble seeing or interpreting signs, or asking the Universe for signs, speaking with an online psychic can help.
