This is something I’ve used, and taught others, and I’m always amazed at how it works. The way I do it is quite simple, although I’ve known people I’ve taught this to who have made it difficult.
The way it works is this … when you have a question that you are struggling with, and want clarity, simply ask God (or Source, the Universe, Shakti and Siva, Christ, Buddha, etc.) for a sign as to what to do. The way I ask varies, but essentially it’s along the lines of, “If I what I’m thinking of doing is in alignment with my soul’s purpose, please send me a sign of ___________.” Usually, I’ll ask for a penny, though I’ve asked for quarters, dollars, or an obscure symbol. My favorite is a penny though.
I then, typically, put a time limit on my request. I’ve asked for a sign in as little as an hour, or as long as a week. Usually, I’ll put a 24 hour time limit on it though. Now, you might think that asking for a penny would be playing it on the safe side as far as signs go, but there have been times I’ve asked and not seen one.
Once I asked for a penny at 9 pm, and put a 24 hour time limit on it. The next day I didn’t see a penny anywhere. At 8:45 pm the next night, I thought, “Well, I guess I received my answer.” The next moment, nature started calling. I walked into my bathroom when, lo and behold, next to the toilet was a penny! Since I work from home I was in and out of that bathroom all day long, and did not see that penny before that moment.
The very next day, what I was asking about manifested.
You don’t have to ask for a penny or anything specific whatsoever. The problem is that if you don’t, you might not be sure if, and when you do receive your sign. I remember one time when I didn’t ask for my usual penny. I was in a book store in Manhattan Beach, California. I saw a book that could have been a sign. Then in another section I saw another book by the same author, written on a subject along the same lines as the previous book I had seen.
“Is this a sign?” I wondered. I was so torn about whether it was or not, I didn’t act on what I had seen as a sign.
One thing I do recommend is that you write down what you’ve asked about, the sign you’ve asked for, and any time limit you put on receiving your sign.
That in a nutshell is what asking for a sign is about.
If you decide to do this, I would love to hear your experience with it. Please write to me in comments and let me know.
