how to ask the universe for a sign

Ask and you shall receive. . .

And it literally is that simple - but behind the simplicity lies the action that needs to be taken.

It’s amazing how when you’ve been doing something for so long you can forget how the journey began. I’ve noted a lot of the times when I talk about ‘Manifesting’ I may use terms that you know in words - but don’t understand how to use them. Like this

  • aligning your energy

  • signs/messages from the universe

So today let’s start with baby steps and the questions

- How do you ask for a sign from the Universe?

- How can you tell when you’ve got your sign?

- What if you don’t get your sign?

I hear these all the time! If you’re confused about how to ask for a sign, you’re not alone.

asking for a sign from the universe

There’s a lot of stress around asking for and receiving signs from the Universe, and how to trust in the signs you receive.

People tell me, “I got my sign but I’m not sure what it means,” or “I’m not getting my sign and I don’t believe I’m being guided.”

Asking for a sign means that you’re willing to work with the Universe. It means that you’re committed to releasing expectation and control and instead, being led by a power greater than you. If you don’t get your sign, that in itself is a sign!

Asking for clear guidance is about being willing to receive the information the universe is giving to you and then accepting that it may not be what you think is right. This is when it’s good to remember and trust that the Universe has a better plan than you do.

how to ask for a sign from the universe

You can ask for a sign to guide you toward anything you desire. If you’re unsure about a decision or you simply want to know you’re on the right track, just literally ‘ask for any kind of sign’ that you want.

Don’t get hung up about what your sign should be. Just choose the first thing that comes to your mind.

It could be an animal, a song or a book title. Often signs are numbers in sequence like 1111 or 444, or a song, a fragrance, a white feather or a name. Just let whatever comes to your mind become your sign. Allow it to come to you naturally and commit to what you hear or see.

Once you ask for your sign the next step is crucial.

Then turn what you desire over to the Universe with gratitude. Say this little prayer (or something similar that resonates with you):

“Thank you, Universe, for offering me clarity. Show me my sign if I’m moving in the right direction.”

And then be patient…

how to know you’ve gotten your sign and what to do when you receive it

If you’re open to receiving it, you will recognise it instantly, as it will resonate with you and you will feel like it is meant for you.

When you get that feeling then move forward, don’t second-guess it. Trust that guidance! The guidance truly is limitless!

When you first start receiving signs and noticing lots of synchronicities it might seem a little too good to be true, but they’re not. This the universe giving you what you deserve and have faith in the guidance you receive.

don’t try to control the sign the Universe sends

Many people will ask for a sign but then not surrender to the Universe. Or they don’t trust that the guidance they receive is better than what their ego wants. And they try to manipulate situations so their sign will show up, or they specifically pick a sign they know they’ll see.

try not to control your sign – your sign will be crystal clear if you’re going in the right direction

Always remember that if your sign is not clear, then that too is guidance.

what to do when your sign isn’t clear or you’re unsure about it

So what happens when you see your sign, but don’t feel connected to it? Or when you realise that you’re trying to play tricks with the Universe?

The answer is simple: Tune back into your inner self. Your intuition, your (positive) inner voice via silence or meditations to get centred again. Don’t try to manipulate or control an outcome, or to feel a sense of certainty when you’re uncomfortable, that is not a sign. That is your ego!

Manifesting is being guided by the Universe with total trust in the journey.

When you’re in alignment, you’re in sync and that isn’t based on ego or a specific outcome. It’s based on a free-flowing energy that is supporting and guiding you.

If you find yourself trying to search for your sign or control your sign, or you see it but don’t know what it means, that’s an indication that you are out of alignment.

**out of alignment - you have not done the inner work to match the energy of what you want.

Get back into doing the inner work, release the pain, stop judging yourself and others and get out of the victim mode in your life.

Once you’re back in alignment, you can ask for your sign and trust that you will receive the guidance you need. When you ask from a place of peace rather than from a place of neediness and control, you will receive CLEAR direction putting you on the right path.

**back in alignment - you are focused on the things you have and not the lack of something. you energy is beginning to match what you want.

When you try to control, you create blocks!

what if you don’t get a sign?

Anytime you want to ask for a sign, tune in to your energy first. If your energy is ego-driven, the responses will be confusing.

If the energy is aligned with love, you will always get a clear direction. Be very conscious of the energy you’re putting out when you ask for guidance and make sure that it’s clear, and connected.

be patient and trust in the Universe’s plan

Some signs come quickly and some take time. If you don’t get your sign right away don’t worry. You may need to clear some fears or strengthen your faith before you can get it.

Looking to manifest a business you love - to create the life you want. . .
