Seeing & Following the Signs from the Universe gives us confidence in our decisions and choices.

When we have questions or want to be certain of an answer we are making in life, signs from the Universe help to guide us. Seeing & Following the Signs from the Universe, with faith and trust, allows us to step forward confidently and courageously with our soul’s passion toward our dreams.

“Signs, Signs Everywhere a Sign
Blocking Up the Scenery, Breaking my mind.
Do this. Don’t do that. Can’t You Read the Signs.” Les Emmerson

These are lyrics from a popular song in the 70’s. We are inundated with signs all day long. The signs so many pay attention to are often not the signs that support our passions and our destinies. Rather, the signs we pay attention to are the ones that pave the way with obstacles and frustrations.

Be Smart about what seeing & following the signs from the Universe truly means

Signs that DO NOT help us are the ones that given to us by ‘man.’ The signs from network news, the signs from those telling us what to do. Our minds can give us signs by having a negative mindset of ‘shoulds’ and ‘could haves.’ These, we certainly do not want to follow.

However, the Universe answers our questions all the time through a variety of formats. These are the signs that are the guideposts to our lives. These are the signs that when we understand how to call upon them, how to understand them, and how to act upon them gift us clarity and courage to go in the direction of our soul’s purpose.

Be Open to the Variety of ways you of seeing & following the signs from the Universe

Nature gives us answers in the form of elements (earth, air, water, fire), weather, and plants. A cloud formation and even rainbows in the sky can be a sign for you.

Sounds help guide us. Sound in nature such as certain birds will give us the answer we are seeking. Songs will come over the airways with meaningful lyrics. Someone will say something that seems coincidental to our situation without their even knowing anything about the question we are asking the Universe.

Daily activities can be signs as well. For example, taking a wrong turn on the way to an appointment, taking an elevator down when trying to go up, or asking for coffee and having tea served are great signs. They can all be the gift of understanding that a wrong choice is about to be made.

6 Tips on Seeing & Following the Signs from the Universe

When things suddenly change, use this approach to stay connected to your purpose and allow your passion to flow so you can continue building your dreams.

  1. A.S.K. ~ Always Seek Knowledge

As in anything in life, understanding the signs of the universe is a skill and can be developed. Begin to cultivate looking for signs from the universe.  Start with easy questions to develop an innate understanding of what various signs mean to you. Once you do this for a while, you can move onto asking those discerning questions that you want answers to that will guide your life forward.

2. Stand and BE at Attention.

To do this, you must slow down. To see the signs, you must pay attention to your surroundings. Seeing & Following the Signs from the Universe can be easily missed when we are running around on auto-pilot. We must be able to BE in the moment and BE keenly aware of our surroundings. Uplevel the antenna on our senses. What are you smelling, seeing, hearing, feeling? Doing this is vital to seeing the signs of the Universe. They are always available to you, but if you are in a hurry-up-and-go state, they are overlooked.

6 Tips on Seeing & Following the Signs from the Universe

  1. Ask Discerning Questions.

Deep soulful journaling, meditation, and Being still with oneself and hearing the deep question cultivates this for us. The clearer our questions become, the more our answers will be shown to us. It is then confirmation (or as I like to say confidence) signs will become more vivid to us.

Seeing & Following Signs From the Universe requires deep personal awareness

  1. Cultivate A Dictionary of Meanings for yourself.

Signs given each of us are deeply personal. Understanding their meanings, therefore, are extremely personal. Each of us will interpret the signs differently. The best example of this is using skunks. So very many see these creatures as stinky and smelling up the works. Others resonate with their ability to put their noses up in the air and go about their own business. These are two very different meanings.

We can begin to cultivate the meanings of various signs by paying more attention to our surroundings. Ask a question. Look at the scenery and see something. Ask: If this were a sign what would it mean? For example: What does that billboard mean? It’s images? It’s words? What is the deeper meaning of these? Paying more attention is a fun game of curiosity that hones the skills necessary to understand and follow the signs in life.

Do not fully rely on Google or friends to captivate these personal meanings. It is best to start from within us. Then, if we want to have more information, ask for ideas about the meanings, compare, contrast these with the meanings we have for ourselves and add (or detract) concepts as necessary.

Too, focus on recurring signs. These will happen. Pay attention to these ~ particularly if they come in three’s and allow time for introspection to discover what they mean.

Of special note, is the Universe often has a sense of humor! The funnier the sign, the more powerful it just might be. People call these the cosmic 2×4’s ~ often coming after ignoring signs that are all around!

As we step into the art of ASKing, this internal dictionary will come into play for support.


Cultivate an understanding of the signs of life by reflecting upon them after they are seen. As this skill of ASKing and seeing is develops, the power of the pen will help magnify their messages.

And, Probably most importantly:

  1. KISS the signs…

As you begin the practice of developing the skill to understand the signs from the Universe, many people want to complicate the process. Don’t! Kiss it ~ Keep It Simple Sister!
