Signs are everywhere. If you are observant, you can receive them all the time. The most ordinary events can provide you with a message or an intuitive cue to keep you on course. You are the one filling up your world!
The art of reading signs comes from extracting images in our environment that mirror our intuition. The messages really come from inside you. Be alert to signs, but don’t let them control you. Rather, signs are guideposts for your inner voice appearing in the things around you.
If your attention focuses on something you think is a sign, but you do not know what it means, close your eyes and wait for some inner clue, a voice, a picture, a sound.
If you are still unclear about the meaning, write something about it. Use a blank page in your journal and just start writing without any intent. Just let your pen flow across the page without stopping.
You can also do quick word associations by holding the image in your mind and writing down every word that comes to mind. Then review the words you have written and look for a pattern, or message that stands out.
