Asking For, and Receiving, a Sacred Sign

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.

  1. Hi Abby,
    Your worry is exactly why you’re asking for this particular sign. It is a dare. I remember a woman who asked for the oddest things, like horses and ballerinas. When both “signs” showed up, she freaked out!

    As her coach I couldn’t help but wonder if she really wanted what she was asking about with regards to receiving a sign (I was coaching her on creating and manifesting a healthy relationship). I will tell you this, after she received both of her signs, I didn’t hear back from her.

  2. ya i wonder if i really want what i’m asking for too! hehe. . . i’ve been wondering if i should get an office to practice massage in. i keep flip flopping about it, i’ll let you know!

  3. What a great question to ask for a sign about! Definitely something I would use this for.

    I can tell you already why you’re hesitant about even asking for a “sacred sign.” It’s because you have a number of other questions under this one. For example –

    “If I get a yes to my question, how much rent can I afford? Will I have enough clients to pay for rent for my office, my personal expenses, and my personal wants and needs?”

    Am I correct here? (That’s my question to you! LOL)

    By the way, thank you so much for posting this under comments instead of on Facebook, or sending me an e-mail or Facebook message. Your comments will help a lot of people who are reading this struggling with a similar issue.

    You are a rock star, Abby Jane!

  4. you’re a rock star really 🙂
    i feel kind of guilty getting all this info for free! it’s worth a lot.
    no $2 bill today. i every time i did a massage i was kind of excited to see what they were going to pull out of their wallet for me. . .

    and you’re right i do have lots of those other questions!

  5. Thank you Abby Jane! You’ve inspired me to write a post I hadn’t intended to write.

    Of course, I would have been really excited to hear that someone did pull out a 2 dollar bill for you!

    I have to ask, did anyone give you a $2 tip? LOL
