Seeing Signs From The Universe

"Do You Think That Was A Sign?"

First and foremost......YES it was a sign. The Universe supplies us with an infinite amount of signs daily we just need to put on the correct pair of glasses to 'see' them. If you are wondering about the usage of the word Universe I can make it easier. God/Goddess, Source, or Spirit. Call it what you will it is all the same. We live in beautiful in synchronicity with the life force that is the Source of all living things.

I know we have all heard there are no such things as 'coincidences' it's kind of trendy and cliché at this point. However, a truism. Look at the world around us. Is it a coincidence that we have seasons? Is it a coincidence that plant life recycles? Is it a coincidence that a child can be created from something we can't even see? Is it a coincidence that EVERYTHING is made up of energy? Hmmmmmmmm, not likely.



We have all have experienced signs. I doubt highly there is a living soul who has not thought of someone and the phone rang, bumped into an old friend who helped them get a job, met someone in a restaurant who told you just what you 'needed' to hear, or thought of someone and there they were. There are tons of these things working in our lives daily. If you really stop and look at how life actually works you would be amazed at how finely tuned it actually is.

What I am here to tell you is that YOU can work with the signs and not just sit and wait for a sign to show up and then not know what to do with it.

If YOU think it is a sign, it is. There is a difference between just seeing something and seeing something 'knowing' it was meant to be there for you. You will know this if you are open. The KEY is be open to the possibilities and it will be wondrous what you actually see.

Now, there is a pesky little thing called "Second Thought (ST)." ST is the enemy of the sign. ST is the logical part of our brains that undermines the sign. First rule of thumb, "go with your first thought-not the second." There are occasions where logical thought is warranted. For example, not everything is a sign. If you are driving and you see a billboard that says "May is here,so start the Spring right." if you are thinking of your friend Margaret and think wow maybe the M on the sign means I should call Margaret. I'm thinking no. However, if your friend's name is May and you were thinking I haven't talked to May in a while I wonder if I should call her and then see the bill board I'm thinking yes.

The radio is a great place for signs. I get huge signs on the radio. Someone I loved very much died (in my arms-another Hub) and she reaches me via songs all the time. We went to a David Bowie concert over 25 years ago. We loved Bowie and that was one of our "things". Now Bowie, as much as I LOVE him, is not at the height of his career now. He is not all over the radio like say Lady GA-GA. I can think of her and tell her to give me a Bowie song and almost on command it is there. I will get a 'vibe' to turn on the radio and there he is. It happens so much that it defies the laws of probability. Once it was 5 times in 24 hours. I was scanning the TV the other night and something said stop on this channel. Well, it was nothing I wanted to watch but I followed my intuition. Within no time David Bowie was on. I have not seen him on TV in probably 12 years or more. Countless experiences like these.

Wait, I just took a break form writing this Hub for a few days and this is what happened yesterday. I was walking thinking about my friend and I looked up and there was a parked car with the license plate saying "IM HERE." I thought I wonder if this is you. I crossed the street and went into a deli and David Bowie FAME started playing!

Pennies are our little gifts from the other side. I asked The Universe the other day, "If I am on the right track send me a penny right away. With in 1/2 hour in the dark I saw a shinny penny in the middle of a parking lot with on coming cars. I stopped and got the penny.

Commercials and TV shows are also a means for signs to be brought forth. If you are thinking clearly about something you may hear a line on a TV show or commercial that answers your question. I know someone who was pondering deeply what she was supposed to do next and where to look. As she thought that a line on a TV show said, "To find what is truly real you may have to look at the unreal." I also, know someone who was in a grocery store and thinking about her loved one and said to herself I wonder if you ever talk to me and at that moment the song on radio said "I'm talking to you."

Feathers are another way our loved ones try to reach us. I have personally asked for a feather to be presented to me within 24 hours. Withing 6 hours I was in a mall parking lot nowhere near any "nature" and a large quill type feather was at my feet.

Signs are can be very specific to the individual. Very much like my David Bowie you may have certain words, songs, smells, feelings that occur. Always go with your first thought. Remember ST will always be there to tell you "oh no it was just a coincidence." Trust me what I have seen defies all laws of probability.


Working With The Universe to Achieve Signs and Help

God/The Universe wants us to be happy. God does not want unhappiness. The notion of poverty,chastity, etc never really worked. Think about it what kind of "all loving presence" wants you to be poor and struggle? There is an abundance of happiness for us we just have to trust and believe. It is a simple equation: Ask +Believe = Receive. The forth component is Gratitude. Sounds simple but at the same time hard to do. Asking is easy, believing less easy, receiving easy with a twist. The twist is being open to receive your sign. I am famous for studying this, practicing this and yet the hardest thing for me to do is receive. I am always saying well maybe but I'm not sure. This is a guarantee to NOT get the sign. I asked for one yesterday. I really felt I knew the answer but was asking for 'back up'. I was nervous I would not see the sign, this does not show believing. I did not see the sign I asked for. That can be the sign, no sign. However, by me having lack of belief put the message out there that I really didn't want it.

The word FLOW is often used to describe being open to the Universe. This simply means allowing without doubt. VERY hard. We as humans have the knee jerk reaction to control. Being in flow is easy when things are good. Being in flow when things are not so good very hard. If we are trying to control a situation then we feel active and distracted at the same time which allows us in a way to avoid just "being". Just being is where you have to be to work with signs. Just be and watch and then you really learn.


The Key To The Universe


Step By Step

You have the ability to talk to God/The Universe any time and should. If you are interested in working with signs and seeing how you can communicate there are a few clear ways to do it.

1. Find a relaxed and quiet spot (same spot every time).

Scroll to Continue

2. Relax (light a candle, play soft music, meditate)

3. With a clear mind think of the question you want answered. Write it down. While writing it down concentrate on the question, really press down on the paper. Easiest to ask a yes or no question.

a.You can ask for a specific sign or a general sign and a time limit. Be VERY clear with your question. No extra words. For example, "Give me a clear sign of a feather, in 24 hours that it is a good idea to travel by plane on June 1st 2010 to New Mexico. Thank you God!" Now if you were to ask it like this "Give me a clear sign of a feather, in 24 hours that it is a good idea for me to take a trip. Thank you God." That is way too vague. Remember no sign is a sign.

4. Repeat the question out loud or in your head with no other distracting thoughts.

5. Relax and visualize you getting your sign and experiencing what you asked for. Feel all emotions attached to it. Use all your senses to really lock in the experience. Also, picture what it would be like to not get your sign and be fine with that. If you can not do that don't ask for that sign. Thank God for the sign.

6. Keep a journal with all your signs and write where and when you get them. You will see how amazing it is and how it works.



Signs can come to us in many ways and in many forms. God/The Universe sends us signs daily whether we ask for them or not. We are guided with that little voice we hear or something will pop out of seemly no where. Our deceased loved ones are another way we receive signs. I believe they want us to know they are always around and try very hard to get our attention. Signs will increase as we are able to aline with the flow of The Universe. It is as if the more we get the more we get. God can't reach us as easily if we are blocked by emotions, control or lack of faith.

Next time you see that penny pick it up and I bet another comes along very soon. Try it.

Hi Scarlett. I keeping seeing the same name of a city on the license plate over and over again. I also see feathers, butterflies and numbers like 123, 324, 1111, 222, 555. When I think of a specific number plate with the city name on it, I saw it. What could this mean?

Kimie on March 30, 2018:

And by the way......Thank you Scarlett Black!! Great article! You truly understand how to communicate and give relevant information that truly resonates. I appreciate that you identify with what people really want to know without all the LOA mumbo jumbo. Thank you!

Kimie on March 30, 2018:

I ask for a sign...a dime....and lo and behold I will walk into the store and find one or on my way out...where there wasn't one going in. It is Amazing!!!! It has happened so many times I know it's not by chance. It is a sign to my question.

CC from Untited States on May 11, 2017:

Yep there are no coincidences. I get synchronicities from the universe every day

Emily on August 04, 2016:

Awesome article

snail with glasses on July 29, 2015:

I believe in signs

I recived a lot of them.

But for now i.m triying to understand the meaning and direction of each one. Hugs

debby on June 01, 2015:

Its been a month since me and my boyfriend of two years brokeup...I have tried my very best to move on and forget him but recently I just keep getting these signs I see his name everywhere even when I hear things they are related to him in a way...I dnt know if these means we will be getting back together or the relationship is completely over and I should move on

IGuess on May 14, 2015:

I just want some kind of idea on what it is I see almost every day. The Number 150 has appeared several times randomly over the last couple of weeks, first it came on TV shows, than articles, then game shows (as points) & sometimes I would hear or see it randomly from others, then just yesterday before reading this, my paper towel that I had I ripped it into four pieces & it was like badly torn & one of the pieces I threw to the side of my bed & some time later I turned to it & on it said Believe, which didn't pay no mind to me until i read this article. but there are more but I guess i'm just seeing things thinking its a sign or maybe I'm making it into a sign, that's why I'm asking for an answer or something or just an insight.

IGuess on May 13, 2015:

I..........just sound like a crazy person, but I think I do see signs, but then again it could be my imagination. but i have been seeing things repeatedly & even if I ignore it, i end up seeing it again just randomly, does that sound crazy?

LAVI on January 11, 2015:

I love this article :) I'm just curious, since the posts are about 2 years old.... Any updates?

Shelby on November 04, 2014:

I was curious about whether the signs I receive really meant anything at all because right now I am going through a tough time.....been broken up from my soulmate for 8 months now. I just got my 2nd confirmation sign as I am writing this so I had to tell you right away. Anyway, my ex's name is Jared and I keep hearing and seeing his name everywhere. Not like it's an uncommon name, but I never heard or saw the name as much since we've broken up. Now, the problem is that I want him back and I keep seeing all these signs, especially the sign of his nickname...Bear. Sometimes I see a bear paw (which I had tattooed on my right shoulder while we were dating). Unfortunately he is hung up on a married woman who doesn't want to be with him. I've known from day one he was my soulmate and the signs only reinforce my beliefs. The tip that helped me the most from this article is to BELIEVE. That is my biggest hurdle because of Second Thought. Now I realize that I need to let go of my fears and Second Thought and just believe. I still believe he'll come back, sooner or later. I've said it from day one when he left. I KNOW what is going to happen, now I just have to wait for it to happen. In the meantime I will go about my life and be happy. Thank you! :)

P on September 02, 2014:

I think I'm losing my mind ... But here I go

24 mos ago I was in a long distance relationship... At the time I had plans

to move but my father became ill and couldn't move... I told the person to

move on ... As soon as I did this .. I started experiencing the strangest

thing... I would see his name everywhere commercials, random signs saw his

name everywhere... Well I eventually moved to be with this person ... Well

were are separated he moved out of town and I'm moving back home to FL ,

guess what it started again ... The visions of his name in random things

and places ...

But this story really begins when I was 5 living on an island, I saw a movie

as a child and thought I would love to live there one day ... The movie was

7 Brothers for 7 Brides the place is ( Oregon ) ...

14 years ago I worked for a company whose headquarters were in an Oregon ...

12 years ago I was scrolling the web and came across a church, and thought I

would love to attend his church .. This church is located in Beaverton OR

Then 2 years ago I met a guy the one mentioned above guess where's he is

from - yep Oregon ..

What do you think ? We're these visions ?

Hani Hamid on August 31, 2014:

Thanks for the great article. I've been unlucky in love for a while now. Can't seem to meet anyone. except online. It's pathetic, I know..simply because my so called admirers tend to vanish after a while.

The current one has been quiet for a few days. Normally I'd take this as a sign it's over. But since I've known him online, there were just too many signs around. For example the next day after chatting with him, his name was plastered all over my work place. Literally all over. And almost every day there have been signs, too many signs. I will try to meditate and ask the Universe relevant questions regarding this.

Thanks again for the great article and the advice on how to ask for a sign,

Jamerica on November 16, 2013:

OMG, this article was definitely a sign. I've been reading on angelic realms & angel numbers and been inspired by Doreen Virtue's writings and interpretations. I've recently found pennies on the ground, in my house, in my back yard... I didn't know what it meant until now (just unsure if heads or tails mean anything in particular). Strangely, each penny I've found has either been scuffed, chipped, or just simply ruined. What does that mean?

Sageluna on November 07, 2013:

Hi Scarlett, I used to be a strong biliever in signs that I would always be looking for them. Then I decided to stop and be a more logical person. There was this boy that I had a thing going on with for months but he lost interest and nothing happened. I really liked him, but I got over it, it's been months since the last time I saw him. I don't think about him, but lately I keep hearing or reading his name about 3 to 4 times a day. I keep telling myself to ignore it but it's happening too often that it makes me cosidere that it might be a sign. What do you think?

Sp1966 on November 03, 2013:

My bf and I broke up after 3+ years and it was a bad break up. I am doing okay, it's been 3 months and 2 months of no contact. We have not cleared the air and it saddens me at this point. I feel deeply connected to him and I've had visions of him meeting me when I cross over and felt complete peace at the thought we will be together one day. I have prayed for signs to let me know that he still cares, that he still loves me, or that he isn't still upset with me. Once I had a dream that he txted me "you're beautiful, thank you and I love you" and one time I received a Facebook love posting that said "yes, I still love you." I knew both times immediately that it was a sign I had asked for. Of course, my ST wanted to give me doubt, but I always try and get back to positive thinking. I still have not heard from him and I'm hoping that he will reach out to let me know I'm in his thoughts ;)

lisa on September 04, 2013:

why do i keep seeing his initials on license plates- up to 5x a week! Yesterday i pulled into a parking lot and the car directly infront of me had- yep u guessed it- his initials! Today driving again his initials on one car, and then another car- with the college sticker of the college he attended, which is not a big name or popular college! We are in a "complicated " state at the moment. I adore this man. His life is a quagmire at the moment and we have been doing this "dance" for about 2 years. I am distraught without him. My heart breaks bc we are not incontact at the moment due to circumstances. I know he cares for me. I feel we are deeply connected or all these signs would be given to me. I ask God, and the angels for them and they always come. But why... is what I want to know? Are they telling me we will be together again and to have hope? Please scarlett help me.

Meenz on March 09, 2013:

It's almost a sign that we all have lamded on this page and reading this article. It's a proof that we all were looking for answers for the questions or the signs we hav just encountered.

2-3 days back, something like this happened with me as well. I'm searching for a suitable guy for marriage and i was in a bus thinking, where would my destiny take me, in my same city or somewhere else. Simultaneously i was reading the billboards with bigger names, i was just following the names of the building, companies etc. Suddently my eyes stopped over on a hotel name, guess what this name was similar to the first name of the person im talking to and atttracted to. The bus then took a turn, n in hardly 50meters or so, i saw another billboard, just after the hotel name. That billboard had the last name of the same person. I wondered, what was that and what message did my higher self or the universd planned to give. I want to know was this a sign n i want to know does dis sign means he reciprocates my feelings n the future holds something for us? Its been 2 months im talking to this guy. Haven't met him, neither is he in my city, he is in another country. Scarlett if you can help, pls guide me. And this is indeed a lovely article ;) i rarely post comments, but here, while i was reading this, i could not stop but think about the sign i got.

nancy on March 06, 2013:

saintrop on February 25, 2013:

Thank you so much for that Scarlett - my signs are almost driving me crazy!! I've met twin soul 6yrs ago just in passing by. I contacted him 3yrs after, because I could not stop thinking about him (and I guess at that time I already had some signs then, but didn't pay them any attention). After a 2 yr exchange by email, we decided to meet in person (we both live in completely different parts of the world). We spent 48hrs together and had a tornado of a connection that Disney Princesses can only dream of (and no it wasn't "physical"). We briefly met again a few months after, but my feelings towards him were so strong I had do cut him off (it was better for my sanity). I lived my life here and he lived his without giving me definite answer as to how he felt (my guess, he was totally overwhelmed with the experience too - plus he's at a point in his life where he wants to focus on his job/career). However, EVERY TIME we are NOT communicating I get bombarded with signs about him. And I don't mean a few times a week, I mean several times a day - sometimes even several times an hour. The sings may spell out his name in full, or everyone who mentions they're off on vacation is almost guaranteed to visit his country - sometimes I make a joke and say: Oh let me guess - you're going to XYZ.. One time I was researching a chronic condition and was browsing Youtube.. within 3 videos I was watching a TV documentary which showed his workplace (of course totally unrelated to initial chronic condition I was researching. I was actually surprised I didn't see him in it). The more I NOT think about him - God forbid I'm not thinking about him for a split second - a sign appears. So much so, I get really angry and frustrated at times. Unfortunately we're at a point where we are no longer talking (the few times we did talk after I "split", we only argued like a couple in divorce), however the signs don't stop...

paul76 on December 01, 2012:

hi again scarlett. well... i asked the universe a more specific question: i asked "i keep seeing the angry bird character. does (her name) want me to contact her? if 'yes' is the answer please show me a (what i asked for) by the end of the day. thank you." i saw what i asked for. the way i saw it, there was no doubt at all the universe responded. so i text her to see if she received something of hers that i found in my room which i sent in the mail about 2 weeks ago. i got a general reply of "i have. thanks." and that's all. so i listened to the universe and did what i asked. i dunno what will happen from this. i guess i'll just be patient and positive something good will happen. but in the meantime i'll just keep living in the moment. there will be other opportunities i'm sure.

Scarlett Black (author) from New York on November 13, 2012:

Paul76 I am not sure. I believe there is a reason for this you are right. It maybe a reminder to be patient and all will play out. However, I would notice what you are thinking when it happens and see of there is a reoccurring theme. Each person and each situation is different.

paul76 on November 10, 2012:

great article scarlett! first off, i stopped believeing in coincidences a long time ago. i truly believe in signs and try to interpret what they mean. presently i keep seeing a sign. i was involved with a lady for about 6 months. it was really good but also very complicated and stressful. i won't say why. because of this we had a lot of disagreements and, i don't like to say arguments but more like passionate conversations of what we believe is right. anyways we stopped seeing each other. it's been 2 weeks now. she loves the angry bird character. when we was together, anytime i would see it in such random situations and places, i would hear from or see her without failure. now as we're not together i keep seeing the angry bird on almost a daily basis! i try to avoid places where i know i will see it but i'll end up seeing it somewhere else. my questions is: am i seeing this character cos she's thinking about me? or is telling me to just be patient and that we will be together again?

Shreya on July 18, 2012:

Thanx for the reply Scarlett. I just hope this change is for the betterment of the relationship :)..

I look upto you to guide me through the signs and its interpretation.

There is one more thing i want to know. I never get the sign in a time frame. Like is i ask that i want the sign for x thing in the form of y within say 2 hours, I never get it in that time frame.. and when i get them i realise why i am getting them but my that time it starts feeling that it's not a sign..

Scarlett Black (author) from New York on July 16, 2012:

Shreya, I wish I could actually answer this for your completely but i can't. As all souls have their won development. Endings are someties temporary and sometimes final. We have been placed with someone for learning and growth. If your gut says it is over it is now whether that is forever I am not sure. Sometimes endings bring new beginnings and change in that very relationship.

Shreya on July 15, 2012:

Thank you Scarlett for this article.. I believe in signs and was given some too with regards to getting back my ex.. Whenever i was thinking about him and our getting back together his name popped up or the song he used to sing for me popped up...

Then I started the ST attitude and the signs stopped.. I have not been able to interpret them well, but your article has made me start over with my intuition again.. I hope the signs stopped so that I just wait for the things to turn for the good..

Scarlett tell me when we really on first instinct feel that a relationship is not over .Here I mean a very strong feeling is it denial or a sign?

Please help me here...

Bernadette Logue on July 02, 2012:

Loved reading this post and all the comments. Signs from the Universe completely transformed my life, so much so I dedicated my life to sharing how to "Follow The Signals". My book about how I used signs from the Universe to change my life has just hit the best seller list on Amazon, which just goes to show how many people are awakening to signs as a way to truly live your life and change your life for the better. Such an exciting and intriguing way to live, almost like being in the middle of your very own mystery every day! My book is "Pinch Me - How Following The Signals Changed My Life". We have a global community of people all following signs from the Universe in their own lives, at, it's free to join and I share the first 4 chapters of my book with all our members.

Love to see you there!

Scarlett Black (author) from New York on May 07, 2012:

To clarify. When we ask for signs they often come but not exactly the way we imagined. For example, if you ask to hear a certain song. You may hear someone talking about the song or read the title in a magazine instead of hearing it on he radio. So, you get the sign but not in the exact way you might expect it. Hope this helps.

Wanda on May 06, 2012:

Hello again, Scarlett,

Just wanted to share with you that after receiving so many clear signs about getting my life back, love, prosperity, health......well, this week I finally got a job in Texas. Yes, the universe brought me back to Texas. It is not easy for me to be here by myself, this is where I used to live with my partner........but the signs and dreams always confirmed that he is coming back, the dreams were beautiful and peaceful. Although now I am struggling by myself to continue living here while I wait with all my love and faith to meet my partner again. It happened to us back in 2008, we had to separate for several months and without planning it, I prayed and prayed and in 2008 we met again and stayed together until the economic crisis affected our lives in 2011. I can feel the energy, I can feel him coming back. My faith is strong.......and I am just waiting. I am ready to "receive". I do have a question for you, what do you mean when you said "It is going to be in a different form?". That I don't understand....8-) I just hope that every blessiing that I receive from now on, is truly a blessing.....I want to continue and share my life with this person.....a happy, loving, prosperous life together........I truly believe that he is my partner, he is the one. Sharing with everybody my story. I have been praying and waiting for a year now. And my love and my faith are still real and strong. "And whatever things you ask in prayer, BELIEVING, you will receive".-Mathews 21

Colleen. We ourselves block signs. We have to be open very open. I know that can be hard believe me. The signs are there start simple. Ask while completely relaxed after breathing in andd out peacefully to find a penny. Then, thank the Universe for the sign before you get it. Fear is something we ourselves create (we all do). Small steps one at a time.

I have been praying for signs to come to me. I feel like I am in a dark tunnel with no light at the end. I pray to overcome my self-doubt and to believe in good. I have lost my way. What am I doing wrong? How do I receive a clear sign that I will feel better someday? I pray to dissipate this overwhelming fear. I know I am the co-creator of my reality? How can I change my negative thoughts and create a better life for myself? Looking for the signs.

Interestingly enough as I was reading this, I left the website open and came back to it and and kept rereading it. During that time, someone who never posts on my facebook wall posted "Yes or you can find an answer to any of your qeustions." A sign? I think so.

Thank you, Scarlett.......for your kind words and understanding.........and thank you for confirming what I in my heart already know, Yes, I have placed the order and it is on its way. And just letting you know, that as of today, I have continued receiving the clear and positive signs that it is really on its doubt. Every message, every dream, every sign ....has my partner's and my initials in it, my dreams are about him coming back home, happiness, peace. Wonderful signs!The difficult part is....waiting. We don't know when it will manifest. I will continue praying and always be open to seeing more signs until my order finally arrives. God bless.........

It is like ordering food you have placed the order it is on its way but maybe in a different form then you think. Igt will be fine! Anarchist, I say move on toward the sunny state. That is enough signs visualize and I bet you see it happen sooner then you think!!

Recently I've been lost as to where to go in my very promising career. I was on a jobs website and found an excellent position and it just happened to be in Maui. I had never though of living in Hawaii but it's to good to pass up so I applied. Suddenly everything is Hawaii. Yesterday I was at my parent's house and the Brother Iz song "What a Wonderful World" came on the radio. I then left their house and got behind a car with a "Live Aloha" bumper sticker and a Maui license plate frame. I got home and went to the book store down stairs. I happened upon a book all about my potential career in Hawaii! This is just a fraction of the cooincidences he job posting closes next week. Curious what the universe has in store!

I have been asking for signs regarding my difficult present situation, I lost everything, including the man I deeply love. I lost my home, my job and my partner a year ago and I have not been able to start over, my life has been paralized completely. I started praying, meditating and asking for signs. Signs that confirm to me that I am going to be ok again, happy again and that my partner is coming back to me. I must say that I received so many wonderful, positive signs.....thru license plates, music, dreams....all positive, all saying that we are going to be together and happy again. But, I don't know why the signs have stopped. I have been asking for signs for almost 2 weeks and I have not seen them. Any comments? Somebody told me that this is when the universe is saying that He did everything He had to do to give me my petition and this is the time where I have to wait and believe to receive. I am living with relatives, and praying for my partner to contact me and come back soon.

Your article sealed what I already knew was a sign but was getting the ST feeling. Thank you for writing such an accurate article complete with various examples,techniques and lots of positivity. :)

A few years ago I had planed to end my life, for lots of reason, everything was to much, I cried out and asked for a sign, I want to believe, but there was nothing, lucky for me I thought I'd rather feel than not feel at all, so I picked myself up and got on with my day to day life, but one day while out walking I saw a heart shape in a plant I was looking at, it seemed to stand out, and this kept on happening from day to day, and I started to think maybe just maybe this is real, I don't know if it is real but when I'm down or needing comfort I see this sign. It makes me feel lucky.

If I ask for a sign you are correct, the universe supplies us with an infinite amount of signs daily

Jehovah gave signs to men who became writers. Isaiah is both writer, and prophet. He is instructed to prepare a document, and then take it to witnesses. He chooses two respected men in the community both of them priests to attest his writing this name on a large tablet. The sign would come later, and it involved a name on a tablet, but it’s the content of the document that needs later confirmation to the authenticity of the document. That sign had to do with the true meaning of that name written upon the tablet. Again, who cares what’s his name, but no it’s the content of the document that matters. (Isaiah 8:1-4)

What’s in a name? That does come up, because both of these priests were there to witness Isaiah’s writing the name of his son, before, mind you the son was even born.

That’s the sign, read it in… a child born to us,… a son given to us. (Isaiah 9:6)

I’ll read your post and vote it up. Thanks for letting me link to your post.

OMG what a great article!!! I've been asking God for signs regarding my ex boyfriend (if he still loves me, I left him) and always, I mean ALWAYS receive them, however I do get that ST feeling sometimes and become doubtful.

I love listening to radio and while I'm doing things around the house I don't really pay attention to what song is playing, but any song that's about a man missing his woman or how much love the man feels towards his woman I'm always 'listening'. Like I stop whatever I'm doing and suddenly I'm paying attention to every word!!! weid but in a good way and truly believe it's a sign.

I've been asking the Universe to send me signs for a while now, regarding my relationship and the signs are everywhere. I asked for specific signs and the Universe responds almost immediately.
