How to Ask the Universe for a Sign and Trust the Guidance You Receive

I want to address a question I get asked pretty often. This is a topic I cover in my book The Universe Has Your Back and one that’s on my mind now as I write my next book, Super Attractor.

the universe has your back gabby bernsteinPeople tell me, “I got my sign but I’m not sure what it means,” or “I’m not getting my sign and I don’t believe I’m being guided.” There’s a lot of stress around asking for and receiving signs from the Universe, and how to trust in the signs you receive.

I want to address this topic head-on, because when you can relax into faith and know a divine sign when you see one, you will receive beautiful guidance and your path will unfold naturally before you! I want this for everyone. So watch the video below and then keep reading to learn how to trust in the signs you receive from the Universe.

But first, here’s a quick refresher on how to ask for a sign, from The Universe Has Your Back.

How to ask for a sign from the Universe

Asking for a sign means that you’re willing to collaborate with the Universe. It means that you’re committed to releasing structure and control to instead be led by a power greater than you. If you don’t get your sign, that’s a sign too! Asking for clear guidance is an exercise in receiving good, orderly direction that is unrelated to what you think is right. Remember and trust that the Universe has a better plan than you do!

owl journal gabby bernstein|ask the universe for a signYou can ask for a sign to guide you toward anything you desire. If you’re unsure about a decision or you simply want to know you’re on the right track, ask for a sign. And don’t get hung up about what your sign should be. Just choose the first thing that comes to your mind. Maybe you think of an animal or a song or a book title. (In The Universe Has Your Back I tell a story about how I chose my sign, which is an owl!) Just let whatever comes to your mind become your sign. Let it come to you naturally and commit to what you hear.

Often people receive signs as numbers in sequence like 1111 or 444. Or maybe your sign is a song, a fragrance or a name.

Once you ask for your sign, the next step is crucial. You must turn over your desire to the Universe with a prayer. Say this prayer: “Thank you, Universe, for offering me clarity. Show me my sign if I’m moving in the right direction.”

Then be patient.

How to recognize that you’ve received a sign

Watch below and keep reading to learn how to recognize that you’ve received a sign and trust in it:

What to do when you receive a clear sign

The greatest way to stay connected with what your sign means and the guidance it offers is to tune into how you feel when you receive it. If you receive a sign that makes you feel connected and aligned, and you feel that you’re receiving an intuitive message to move forward, don’t second-guess it. Trust that guidance. As I say in The Universe Has Your Back, “Limitless guidance is available to you when you surrender to receive it.”

The guidance truly is limitless! You might be a little psyched out when you first start receiving signs and noticing lots of synchronicities. It might seem a little too good to be true. But it’s not. That is simply the miraculous way of life that is available to you when you surrender to the Universe and have faith in the guidance you receive.

The key words here are SURRENDER and FAITH. Many people will ask for a sign but they don’t surrender to the Universe. Or they don’t trust that the guidance they receive is better than what their ego wants. They try to manipulate situations so their sign will show up, or they specifically pick a sign they know they’ll see.

As I say in the book: Try not to control your sign. Your sign will be crystal clear if you’re going in the right direction. And always remember that if it’s not clear, then that too is divine guidance. The medium Colette Baron-Reid says that your sign needs to be like a billboard, so clear that you cannot deny it.

What to do when your sign isn’t clear or you’re unsure about it

So what happens when you see your sign, but you don’t feel connected to it? Or when you realize that you’re trying to play tricks with the Universe?

The answer is simple: Tune back in. Turn to your prayer practice and your meditations to get centered again.

When we use signs from the Universe as a way to manipulate or control an outcome, or to feel a sense of certainty when we’re uncomfortable, that is not the process. Manifesting is a conversation with the Universe. When you’re in alignment, you’re in conversation. That conversation isn’t based on ego or a specific outcome. It’s based on a free-flowing energy that is supporting and guiding you.

If you find yourself trying to search for your sign or control your sign, or you see it but don’t know what it means, that’s an indication that you are out of alignment. Get back into alignment through prayer and meditation, or reread The Universe Has Your Back and use the practices and tools in the book to gain a stronger understanding of what your relationship with the Universe means to you.

Practice spiritual surrender

And if you really struggle with the concept of surrender, try my five steps to spiritual surrender. This is a beautiful practice to use when you are having a tough time with letting go of an outcome. Maybe you’re hung up about a crush or wish an ex would come back to you. Maybe you’re looking for a new job and have a lot of anxiety around hearing back from companies you applied to. Whatever it is, this practice will bring you great relief.

Once you’re back in alignment, you can ask for your sign and trust that you will receive the guidance you need. When you open up that conversation from a place of alignment rather than from a place of neediness and control, you will receive CLEAR direction. When you try to control, you only get in the way. But when you ask from a place of wisdom and receptivity, you can trust that the messages you receive are putting you on the right path.

How to be patient and trust in the Universe’s plan

Here’s another excerpt from The Universe Has Your Back that will help you further when it comes to trusting in the signs you receive:

Some signs come quickly and some take time. If you don’t get your sign right away don’t worry. There may be some personal fears you need to clear up, or perhaps faith you need to strengthen, before you can get it. If you’re not getting your sign right away consider that your impatience may be blocking it.

trust the universe gabby bernstein card deckOften when we find ourselves impatient it is really because we do not trust in the outcome. If you’re impatient, maybe it’s because you’re afraid that something won’t happen the exact way you want it or exactly when you want it to happen.

Remember that this need to control the outcome stems from your lack of faith in the Universe. There’s also the belief that if something doesn’t happen in the timeframe that you want that something bad will happen. Worse, this places your happiness and safety in the outcome.

Your true power is the love and peace within you

When you place your happiness and safety in the outcome you lose sight of a plan beyond your own. You cut off communication with the Universe and disconnect from all of the infinite possibilities that could occur. The key to releasing this control is to surrender all your outside needs and obsessions and remember that nothing can take away your true power: the love and peace within you.

No matter the outcome of a situation, your true power is the love and peace within you. This inner sense of love and peace comes from being connected to the love and peace of the Universe and trusting that it always has your back.

So remember: Anytime you want to ask for a sign, tune in to your energy first. If your energy is ego-driven, the responses will be muddy. If the energy is aligned with love, you will always get clear direction. Be very conscious of the energy you’re putting forth when you ask for guidance and make sure that it’s clear, connected and aligned.

  1. Hi Gabby,
    Thank you for this post, your timing is great. I have read your book and think it is great. What I want to know is do you need to meditate in order to receive your signs? And how is no sign a sign? And finally I have chosen a sign that has worked for me, but I do see a lot of 11.11s is this another sign I haven’t chosen? Should I see this as meaning something?
    Thank you again
    Donna

    1. 11:11 is a sign that the angels are guiding you. take a moment when you see it to reflect on what you want and clear away any negative thoughts.

      1. Thank you Gabby. I appreciate your help and your great advice; since reading your book I am beginning to look at things differently and I appreciate you reaching out by responding to my questions.

  2. My sign is 7. I’ve been seeing this number in titles of books or in dates of a trip that I’m making. I ask for a sign to ask if I’m manifestations love. But I don’t know if the times that I’ve seen the number are enough

  3. Hi Gabby! Thanks for your beautiful article. Do you have experience with getting signs from the Universe without having chosen a specific symbol, animal, or number? That you just feel so much faith and completely surrender to anything that will present itself, that beautiful things start to happen? Thank you <3

    1. yes and yes… continue to read and re-read the universe has your back to strengthen your faith in the universe. it get’s stronger the more you lean towards love.

  4. I read the book last year and loved the simplicity of the steps. I was using some of the practices for a while but have fallen out of “habit”. I am in a job where I feel bullied and violated and have a Manager that uses there authority in a harmful way. It’s impacting my mental health in a very big way but I stay because I need the cashflow as I get my business to grow. I was driving on the freeway a couple of weeks back and had a panic attack. It was so frightening. I got into a long tunnel and didn’t feel I could see the end of the tunnel. There was no side road, nowhere to pull over inside the tunnel and there were trucks behind and to the side of me. I had to talk myself through the panic attack and as I came out of the tunnel I said the the universe, “OK, I have to let go. I literally felt like I wasn’t able to keep my hands on the wheel while I was having the attack so please help me understand what I’m meant to do!” I was shaking and crying as I looked up ahead, there was a billboard that caught my eye and I couldn’t stop looking at it. As I approached and it became clear I could see that it said “FOLLOW YOUR CALLING”. My calling is to get out of this situation and focus more on my business but I need cashflow and I keep applying for other jobs to support myself and I’m not even getting an interview! I feel I’m supposed to reflect more on this billboard sign because when I literally had no other choice but to surrender and ask for a sign, it was right there! Any ideas what I should do next ? xxxx

  5. Hi Gabby,

    What happens if you are struggling to move in the sign’s direction. I was travelling and landed in Sydney and before going through border control I went to the bathroom. On the cubicle door at the bottom was a small sticker with “Live Vegan” and my sign , the butterfly, above it.

    I am really struggling to put this into practice. What do you think it means and what happens if you cannot move in the direction of a sign?

    1. your job is to just stay consistent on your spiritual path and remain in alignment with the universe. do the best you can and don’t judge your process.

  6. Hi, I’m new to this, so I have a question – should I be asking for a “specific item” as a sign, or just asking for “a sign”?
    I recently asked for an animal (ie anything not mineral or vegetable!) to appear as a sign that I am on the right track, and then within 20 minutes (!!) I came across people observing an *incredibly* rare (for that location in the wild in the UK) snowy owl. So I took that to be “my sign” from the universe, and that it signified clarity and changes coming in my life.
    Now I am seeing owl pictures everywhere – including your post 🙂
    But should I have been asking differently, eg “if I’m on the right track then show me X …” ?

  7. Dear Gabby,
    Thank you. I have been given two signs one for my work and business and one for finding a romantic relationship. I rarely see either of them! Am I completely out of alignment?
    I think you are an amazing lady and an example to us all.
    I have nearly finished your Universe has your back. I have done the exercises and use your prayers. It has really helped me.
    Thank you,
    Cressy

  8. Thanks Gabby – I hope it’s ok with you if I buy “The Universe Has your Back from Amazon UK when I tried to use your way to buy it seemed too complicated. I promise I will buy your book today love you from Mair xxxx

  9. 2 months ago i attended a new ladies connect group event and i got drown to the woman who was speaking about her business on that day;dhe happened to be a hypno therapist specialising in infertility resolutions; i have now had several sessions with her and it has unlocked so many unconscious truth + she also makes me practise tapping when my emotions are too rough.Yesbi have not miracuoous got pregnant since but i am convinced she was the sign I had been waiting for the past 5 years. ..

  10. I asked for a specific sign to determine if a a guy was the right direction for me, I received my sign a fair amount. However, it turned out he isn’t the right direction for me and as I observed him from a distance, I determined he wasn’t the right path for me and isn’t in my life. This left me really confused by signs because I wondered why was I receiving my signing regularly if the situation wasn’t a direction for me. I’m confused now, fairly skeptical of signs and not sure that this process carries much weight. Can you shed some light as I’d like to believe in this process but am weary to trust this. 🙂

    1. read the chapter in the universe has your back called “obstacles are detours in the right direction” answers are there!

  11. OMG,,,I needed to see this video today Gabby. I am going through a work harrasment situation, and experienced an unfair dismissal from my job (it was my side job by the way, not alligned with my purpose which is wedding & event planning). I follow your work and wisdow which I love and I have my sign (a butterlfly). I am in the process of asking for my rights and suing the company I worked for, but I had some hesitation whether I should or should not do it. I had a meeting this morning about this situation and the girl I was talking to was wearing a butterfly necklace. I think this was my sign that I am on the right path. Thank you Universe and thank you Gabby

  12. I have been dating for a couple years now, trying to find a partner. I practice kundalini, EFT, and am definitely much more confident in myself and my wants, and much more at peace. I read your book about 6 months ago.. and with all the sincerity asked for a sign to know when I had found something special. Like you chose owls, I chose eagles. As I arrived at my latest boyfriends home I walked into his bathroom and saw a mirror painted with eagles. I saw myself and the eagles and rejoiced. I spoke with him about what I wanted, someone to communicate their feelings and a supportive partnership that went both ways. He promised me he would communicate. As someone who does a lot of self work, I notice that men have leaned on me as a therapist more than a partner and that it is not my responsibility to wrangle the uncertain emotions of someone else. I would like support, not just giving it. Anyway, this partner a few weeks later invited me over to his home, rejected me in his bed and only after I asked him if everything was ok.. twice… began to dump me. This is not what I had in mind in terms of communicating. I gathered my things and left.
    I’m confused. Surrender more I think, but does that mean stop dating? Does that mean opening myself up to more hurt? I know the hurt will let in more light.. but I am confused by the signs. Discernment is so hard.
    Thank you for your work and the community of awareness you are fostering.

    1. there’s a chapter in the universe has your back about universal assignments. in that chapter that I reference a romantic relationship. Check it out and. I know it will give you the answers you’re looking for.

      1. In that chapter the partner is good for him, in my case the partner was not. The partner was triggering my fears of rejection and my need to work on my sense of worthiness. Why would I get a sign that this was where I should be? This lesson is one I am aware of already.. it was why I talked to him about my needs, but he still rejected me.

        1. Excellent question…. I wonder about this too. I sometimes think we are put in these situations because we aren’t totally clear of the issue yet, and it’s a test for us to trust. This is what I am struggling with right now.

    2. Hi Erika, I have experienced the same for a long time and very recently … again. I feel I’ve healed and have had plenty of time, yet it keeps happening. I want to believe the Universe will take care of things but geez I’m getting very emotionally exhausted, losing faith and my trust that I build each time reduces to zero after every “assignment”. I’ve been on a journey for 15 years on and off to find my soulmate, manifested, looked for signs, connected, yet it seems like it must all be in my head because it never turns out. Finding my soulmate has still not happened and I don’t want to keep going through this torture and pain of putting 110% into something I thought was real, but turns out it was one sided. It can take you to a very lonely place. Sorry to be so negative but it’s got to a point where it upsets me to be on my own even though I’ve tried so hard not to. Thank you for sharing your story. It really resonated with me.

  13. Thank you for this reminder, Gabby.
    It’s time to re-read The Universe Has Your Back..
    I’m at this almost stagnant point in my life right now.. with more questions than answers on my path.. where I can feel a big change coming, something is brewing and I’m really looking forward to it, to starting fresh, to the new beginning.. just not sure which way to go.. at the fork of a road and not knowing if I should turn left or right or keep going straight.. Sometimes I feel like I should ask for 3 different signs associated with 3 different things and go with the first one showing up for me 🙂 I know that’s ‘pushing’ the Universe and really patience is the key but this indecision is taking a toll on my present moment. Meditation and walks in nature are just spinning my ideas and creating more options, more paths to choose, more questions.. Hoping Spring season brings clarity and a few answers for me 🙂
    Best wishes to you and thank you for sharing your knowledge and light with us, always.
    Lots of love,
    Ania

    1. totally read the book again. it will give you the patience and peace you’re looking for. and it will remind you to trust… xoxo

    2. I am feeling just like that! I started reading The Universe Has Your Back for the 2nd time…my symbol is the butterfly and I see one whenever I need comfort and it makes me smile. The biggest sign are the Angel Numbers everywhere, everyday, multiple times-I’m caught between surrendering and seeking the correct path. My big crossroad at the moment is whether I’m about to make a career change and I’m ready, just no idea why my next journey will be!

      1. it’s all about surrender. When you surrender clarity will come to you.
        read the chapter in the universe has your back called “when you think you’ve surrendered, surrender more”

  14. Thank you so much for this! Is it possible that we can have different signs for different things? Does it always have to be the same sign?

    1. you can absolutely have different signs. just be clear with the universe about what you’re asking for!

  15. My sign is a red balloon but I mainly see them on tv or in a book , does this count ? However when I did ask the universe ” is what I want on its way ?” I saw two ‘ yes ‘ signs on car number plates. I suppose I’m trying to put my own time frame on things Btw have you seen Francesca Amber on YouTube ? She’s also into manifestations and reminds me a little of you

    1. Wherever you see your sign, it counts! I found my sign on a car’s bumper sticker one day! As for the “yes” signs you saw after asking the Universe, return to that question of how you FEEL. If you feel like you’re in an energy of manipulation or neediness, say another prayer when you’re more aligned. xo

  16. Good morning. I have been seeing different signs since losing my husband almost 4 years ago. Some Consistent signs were many, many rainbows that first year after his passing . Many double rainbows. The day of his passing the most beautiful double rainbow appeared above our home where he had passed. Hummingbirds, feathers were some of the other signs. An actually humming bird let me pick it up. It’s colors were so vibrant that I cannot even describe the colors. They were not earthly colors. Only colors that I can imagine heaven with visualize and be like.. The most amazing sign I see Constantly and over and over and over again every day
    is see 11:11. All the other signs I was seeing have seen disappeared. Last year I let go of the grieving process of my husband. I know he is in a better place. The only sign that I see continually seeing is 11:11. I see that all the time. Or variations of it like 111. A very very dear close friend and I share this same sign 11:11 with her. We both are seeing it at the same time. She is the one that introduced me to you. I have your books and cards. Your story is so amazing. Thank you.

    1. This is so beautiful – thank you for sharing this. Your husband is with you and is not shy about letting you know. xo

  17. Hi Gabby!
    I’ve been getting very strong signs from the universe about a certain situation but didn’t want to get my hopes up about it. Last night I was reading this chapter from the Universe has your Back, wondering how I can tell for sure that I have received a sign. When I got to work this morning, I saw your email “How to know you’ve received a sign from the Universe”… pretty amazing 🙂

    Even if I don’t get the outcome I want, I know that I’ll get the outcome that I need. Time to surrender and have faith!

    Thank you so much for the guidance, your books have helped me so much.

    1. Surrender and have faith! Yes… you are supported. You will get what you need. Love and light to you. xo

  18. Devine timing and so much freakin’ awesome!!! Thank you so much for today’s blog. I’ve been on a journey, increasing my connection to Love and the Universe over the past nine months. I picked two signs (which I wasn’t sure was “right” or “okay”…and so it is ). I was born 7/12/77 and weighed 7lbs 7oz… so naturally, multiple 7’s is one. Last year, while reading “The Universe has your back, I also chose a dragonfly. I’ve seen both many times and get very excited and feel joy, awe, and alignment more times than not. I’ve recently been at a crossroads with what is next, debating if I’m going to do a yoga teacher certification. I received an email and found a immersion program in India that seemed like a perfect fit. I asked for a sign. After telling a friend who I didn’t know was interested, I looked for an email conversation with the yoga rep and there it was…their phone number ended in 777. This morning I woke up with a little fear, “was I trying to manipulate what I thought I wanted?” Then I read your bog and BAM!!! Dragonfly big and bold in the middle of my screen. And the buzz in my body screaming “YES!” I’m going to make the deposit today to secure my spot. Thank you Gabby and thank you Universe ❤️✨

  19. I’ve been reading The Universe has your Back (and loving it). A few weeks ago I was reading the chapter about asking for a sign. During this time I had some things going on in my relationship that we’re hurtful and confusing so I asked for a sign from the universe for clarity, and to tell me that I am on the right path and staying in my relationship and trying to move forward was right. My sign was a hummingbird. (I live in a city, in Canada and it’s stilllll cold right now, so i figure if I’m seeing a hummingbird, it’s definitely the universe! lol). Fast forward a few weeks, I never saw my hummingbird, my relationship ended last week and not in a good way, BUT on Friday within 30 mins of waking up I got my hummingbird. It was so in my face I was kind of in shock. I truly believe that it was the universe telling me that NOW I’m on the right path and I will be fine, and better without him. Thank you Gabby, your book continues to give me positive light ❤️

    1. When you say “it was so in my face I was kind of in shock” – that is how you know you’ve received a crystal-clear sign. You are supported.

    1. This requires slowing down and paying attention to how you feel. Are you grounded, calm and in a state of faithful surrender? Are you excited, happy and feeling connected? The way you feel when you’re in alignment may be a bit different from someone else’s but it will feel GOOD. When you are not aligned you may feel nervous, desperate, un-grounded. You may feel physical symptoms like a tightness in your chest or you may be mentally obsessing over the situation you’re asking about. Think about situations in which you feel particularly aligned, like after a meditation or while doing yoga or journaling. Write down how it feels for you in those situations. That is how you know when you’re in alignment. xo

      1. So I took your advice and waited until I was in alignment with my issue before I asked for a sign…which was a cardinal. It took about a week, and then while at my parents on Saturday, I saw a cardinal fly to the birdfeeder right outside the window. Does it matter how long the sign takes to appear?

  20. This was so timely for me today since I’ve been struggling with feeling guidance. Just wanted to thank you for the message and the work you do. You’ve been very impactful in my life!

  21. Dear Gabby, I’m trading all your books and following you all the time but you know when it rains it rains heavy and I’m getting so tired and trying not to give up 🙁 I’m keep asking Universe to show me a sign and guide me the right direction but some how I don’t see anything and don’t know what to do . Please guide me

  22. Thank you for this message Gabby. I have not picked a sign from the universe for myself but have seen (and collected) white feathers and number combinations. I stopped for a bit because I found myself sitting there waiting for the clock to change time like it was a sign from the universe… 11:11 happens twice a day I’ve discovered! 🙂 I’m going to read the Universe Has Your Back to understand it better.

    I’ll be attending your workshop in Toronto in May and I’m SO excited about it. I can’t believe that this is happening.

    Actually… this might be a sign from the universe – I had been telling friends that my dream list included seeing you and Dr. Joe Dispenza live. Imagine how far my jaw dropped when I got an e-mail saying that you would both be in Toronto on the same weekend. This is a dream come true. Looking forward to it very much.

    Kathy

  23. Hi Gaby! I haven’t recently asked for a specific sign (symbol) but I do get some clear messages. Recently I’ve been exploring more and more that the Universe does have my back. This is difficult for me as I need to learn to let go of wanting to control everything, that the Universe does know better.
    Last week I left a post it for myself to remind me of something. I had drawn a simple heart knowing with that I would remember. Later that day, I realized going home that the post it was stuck to my sweater. I have no real idea how but this was a certain sign of the love and support I am getting. Thank you for helping through your book see these wonderful manifestations.

  24. Hi, Gabby!
    This post came at a very coincidental time for me. This past weekend it was my birthday. I have trouble with setting expectations and letting go of these expectations. Often times when I feel like I have let go, I find myself disappointed with some outcomes. For my birthday I made myself have no plans, this way I would not create expectations for how the day would go. I began the morning by talking to the Universe while I drove to my house and surrendered. I told the Universe I was willing to see love today and to let today be whatever it was suppose to be. It ended up being the best birthday I have had in awhile. The best part was my boyfriend surprising me and taking me to a sensory deprivation tank, where I floated for 2 hours and conquered one of my looming fears of darkness. It was scary at first, but as time went on I learned to let go.
    Yesterday after feeling frustrated, I surrendered to the Universe and asked it for guidance. I did not know if I am on the right path of my life or doing the right thing. During my family’s Easter dinner, they gave me gifts for my birthday. One of my uncles gave me a card. After pulling it out of the envelope on the front was a big, blue butterfly- my sign. I felt a wave of emotions overcome me and thanked the Universe for providing me with this. It was an undeniable moment, something that I did not have to search for or force, like The Universe has Your Back says. But I am feeling confused and second guess if this was actually a sign. I feel like I have several signs from the Universe too. Like when I am thinking of my dad, our song will play on the radio when I get in the car. Or I will be thinking of a person or a song, then it appears shortly after or later that day. I don’t know if these are signs or not. Can you help clarify?

    1. Also, after having this experience yesterday, I checked my email to see the headline of this blog post. I want to believe that these are signs, but I don’t know for sure.

    2. happy birthday. all you need to do is trust the signs you’re receiving. you are on the right track for sure!

  25. Wow! How timely for this post (I love how the Universe works). I’ve been struggling to get pregnant for nearly a year and a couple of months ago, I was at a low, incredibly sad place when once again, I wasn’t pregnant. I immediately went to your book The Universe Has Your Back and re-listened to it. When you talked about signs, I felt I needed a sign to tell me that everything is going to be OK. After listening to your story about choosing an owl as your sign, I thought, “What is mine going to be?”. I LOVE owls and see them all the time so knew that wouldn’t be the right sign for me. As another commenter mentioned above, I too heard “eagle” When I thought of eagle, I thought “Really? Is that too close to an owl? I don’t ever see eagles. I’m not sure how I’m going to see that sign.” Well nothing else came to me so I went with it and I’ve seen it three times now, the third being yesterday at Easter church service. One of the singers in the band had this super cool t-shirt on and I kept wondering what was on her shirt. Close to the end of the service, I was finally able to make out what was on her shirt and saw that she had an eagle with its wings spread across her chest. I immediately teared up and knew it was a sign. When I have seen these eagle sightings I am immediately taken over with emotion and comfort. I take these as signs that yes, everything is going to be OK and that I am exactly where I am suppose to be. It’s a sign to trust in that. I don’t know what the outcome is going to be, but I do believe everything is happening just as it should. This post helped me have faith that my sign is truly a sign. Thank you Gabby! You rock sister! Much love to you!

    1. You are EXACTLY where you’re supposed to be and you are supported greatly. Thank you for sharing this miracle moment.

  26. Oh dear Gabby…
    The Universe Has Your Back introduced me to seeking signs from the universe, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this tool. I have had great experiences with asking for signs in the past. However, I recently found that when I ask for signs, I get conflicting messages. For instance, I assigned two different signs for two different outcomes in a this-or-that situation. Instead of getting one clear sign, I would get both! It’s confusing, and I’m not really sure what to make of it. Any suggestions?

    1. if you’re getting both the universe is making it crystal clear that you’re on the right track. but in the future be very specific about which sign you’re asking for;)

  27. Hi Gabby, thank you so much for this post and your work in the world. I’ve been on this spiritual path for a while and felt guided toward going back to school which I am currently doing and yet when I ask for a clear sign of alignment I do not receive it and since I’ve been back in school my connection to myself and the universe has felt less present, this has got me wondering if I am not on the right path. Trying to trust the process but wondering if you have any specific advice for me? Thank you!

    1. stay consistent with the exercises in the book. they are all designed to help you transform fear to faith and stay connected to the universe:) maybe listen to the audiobook so I can constantly be in your ear:)

  28. I’m almost without words. Tears welled in my eyes as I read this passage. Letting go of control (having true faith) when sh*t has already hit the fan is the toughest part.

    1. It can be so tough. I truly understand. But there is a flip side… leaning on your faith when times are very difficult gives you strength and the certainty that you are supported. Love and light to you, my friend.

  29. I really needed to see this today, so thank you, Gabby! I see a lot of 1111 and 444 and the sign I usually ask for is a rainbow. I’ve been struggling with a specific situation and being patient about the outcome. I need to get realigned with my true power and give it over to the universe!

  30. This practice has been very helpful to me and really helps me stay in a place of peace, calm, and trust. I’ve been following you for a long time- I very much appreciate the lessons and guidance! I always get shivers and send out my gratitude to the universe, and ultimately to you for translating this guidance so beautifully, when my sign shows up at just the exact moment that I ask for that guidance (knowing or unknowingly)! Thank you again for all the truth and kindness in your words. All the best…

  31. I will try to keep this short, as I have thought about writing many times. I am living with a family member who is a very negative person. He has nothing good to say about anyone or anything. I am stuck in this situation, as I am living on a very small income. I moved here believing this would be good for me as I had lost my job and my home of 32 years.
    That said I have read your book “The Universe Has Your Back” several times, I use it everyday for inspiration. I thank you for this insight. When asked about a finding a sign it came very easily to me. I had been in a store and was buying a lighter, the one I chose had a dragonfly on it. I had never been drawn to this sign, but for some reason that day I was. Later I was reading the chapter about signs, and there again your mention of your friends sign of a dragonfly. Coincidence? I think not. I find myself in depressions and I go to your book. I ask for my signs and find it almost everyday. Today I read this and as I was scrolling I saw the dragonfly. I see this and I have hope for my future. I have hope that yes The Universe does have my back and one day I will see my dreams fulfilled. until then I thank you for the support, your visions, guidance and your books. It has helped me immensely living with this negativity.

    1. You are supported in every way. I am so sorry to hear that you are in a difficult situation, and I hope you can find a way toward more peace and positivity. If you have the ability to see a low-cost therapist or social worker, such an expert may be able to help you a lot in finding a better living situation and coping with your current one. I believe spirit works through people and don’t hesitate to seek help when I need it, and I encourage you to do so if you are able. My book Judgment Detox may serve you greatly when it comes to interacting with this family member and accepting him while creating healthy boundaries and protecting your well-being. I am holding you in my prayers and I know the Universe has your back. xo

  32. I have asked for signs regarding a same topic and from my father who passed away almost 5 years ago, and guess what? He answers to me every time I ask… however, sometimes I feel I have no one to talk about it and tend to lose some of that momentum… I think I don’t know exactly how to take action after receiving those signs… any ideas how I can make the most out of them? Thanks!

  33. I will never forget the first sign I saw after choosing a rose as mine. A few days had gone by and I still had not seen a rose. Not a single one. I told my friend about how I was patiently waiting for a sign, but still had yet to experience it. The following day I started drinking a new type of tea and on the end of the tea bag string a quote was printed. “He who wants a rose must respect the thorn.” -Persian Proverb

    It could not have been more clear. Thank you Gabby for opening my eyes to seeing the universe.

  34. Hi Gabby,
    I asked for a sign that my son would be okay. I also said that I release the control and ask for the highest power to guide him.
    I ended up seeing heart shaped rocks on 3 different days. I didn’t ask for this sign, but what wow’d me was that I have asked for this sign in the past & this is what I saw. I have also been seeing 11:11 or 12:11 a lot.
    I have read your book twice already, I love it. Thank you so much!!!!

    1. That “wow” is an indication that you are receiving guidance. Love and light to you and your son. xoxo

  35. Two good stories about signs.the first time I asked for a sign what I chose didn’t resonate with me. A few hours later a woodpecker has attacking my neighbors house & it hit me. The woodpecker is my sign. These birds don’t come around often & do not seem to show up in pop culture very much either. Sloths are popular now I should have chose that -haha. Today I received my second invitation to join the miracle membership. I’ve felt drawn to join but worried about money. Cash is always tight. I asked for a sign if I should join. This is what happened- hours later I was taking a walk while Listening to the universe has your back on headphones. Suddenly I could hear a woodpecker. I took my headphones off & it stopped. I put them back on & the woodpecker started again. I couldn’t see the woodpecker anywhere just heard it. 3 minutes later there was the pileated woodpecker flying out of the trees next to me. Guess I’m joining the miracle membership today!
    My other story- I’ve used the woodpecker as a sign once when asking for clairity in my romantic relationship mostly before what I perceive as a hard conversation (hard for me to express my needs) it has come. Recently I was lying next to me lover in the early morning feeling so blessed & happy. After 17 years in a unfulfilling marriage I have a hard time accepting that I can be myself And be be happy with a man. All of a sudden a woodpecker is pecking at his cabin. It worked it’s way around the house until it was pecking behind my head! Loved by it. Two more woodpeckers showed up that day. I feel so lucky & grateful. The universe does have your back.

    1. I love that your sign is a woodpecker! They are good at hiding but make themselves known with that unmistakable sound. Welcome to the Miracle Membership 🙂 So happy you’re joining. xoxo

  36. I so needed this today. I am struggling to get pregnant with my third after ease with my first two. I’ve been obsessing and controlling everything and it’s been so difficult. How do I let go when I want another baby so bad but don’t know if it will happen?

  37. Gabby! I was thinking about you this morning and how my life has changed so drastically for all the forgiveness tools you have put out into the universe. I am thankful, grateful, and blessed for all that you do and all that you share. I wanted to send my own blog article your way that talks alot about sexual assault and forgiveness with my own spiritual twist on it. I wasnt planning on sending this message via your blog article, but am feeling ~called~ to do so:

    https://brahlessclothing.com/blogs/news/women-empowerment-not-a-fuck-men-movement

    Thank you for everything. Keep it up, you wonderful human you <3
    Alex

    P.S. I so love all your messaging on universal signs, animal symbolism has become my fav thang these days <3

  38. Thank you! This was truly amazing! I asked the Universe to show me a sign about a week ago by way of a dragonfly. When I saw this post come to my Inbox today, I knew I had to read it. Lo and behold as I continued through the content, there it was! A dragonfly.
    Truly amazing!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  39. Oh my gosh! I was just reading your blog thinking about my sign symbol from the universe (a dragonfly) and as I scrolled down, there it was! It is amazing how many times the universe communicates now that I am learning to look for the signs. Thank you, Gabby! Your books, “The Universe Has Your Back” and “May Cause Miracles” are a great source of guidance and reassurance that I am finally on the journey I was meant to undertake in this life.

  40. Hi Gabby,

    After i read your book ” the Universe has your back, i prayed to the Universe and asked to show me the sign i had chose. Not long after to my amazement it show off out of the blue when i was walking in the park right off the middle of a soccer field…a Orange Monarch Butterfly came out and flew right by me. Note that i was not seeing one at the time only black and white one. Anyways, i was ecstatic and shouted Thank You Universe. And i just read Jugdment Detox.

    Thank you for the inspirations and the good work Gabby.

  41. Thank you, Gabby. I just ordered your book…I cannot wait to read it. I see different number signs (11:11, 12:12, 1:11, 2:22, 3:33), most everyday. I also find dimes. I know 11:11 has meaning but what about all the other number signs and the dimes?

  42. Thank you for this Gabby! It’s amazing because I feel like I’ve been seeing guiding signs everywhere, and for me it makes me feel like the Universe is listening and that my manifestations are going in the right direction and are happening. I have had to learn to truly surrender, and when I do, that really does make me feel so much more aligned! Once you get a sign, though, do you need to take inspired action, or should you wait? Thank you! I love this!

    1. trust your gut intuition. whatever you think the moment you see your sign is your intuition guiding you. trust yourself.

  43. Hi Gabby
    Thank you soooo much for your work! I love my miracle membership! <3
    So I feel this connection to a man, we started dating but then 3 weeks after he ended it saying he might be too afraid, have a closed heart or are not attracted to me. He is still very much in my life and I am still feeling something but I am having trouble trusting in what I feel as he says he dont – or maybe are to afraid to open up. I asked for a sign – a butterfly – which comes but I don't trust believe in it….I guess I would only trust it if a saw a more clear sign from him….what am I doing wrong?

    1. my advice to you is to focus on the having more fun! Today take some time to do something that brings you joy. No matter how busy you are you can find joy. If you’re an extrovert like me, go out of your way to connect with people in person. If it’s fun for you to put your mind to work then do a crossword puzzle. It doesn’t matter what you do, all that matters is that you seek joy. What happens when you focus on something fun is that you forget about what’s not working. You give yourself a reprieve from the incessant fear-based belief systems that keep you in a negative spiral.

  44. Hi Gabby,

    Thank-you for all you do :).

    A few months back I asked the universe for a sign that I was in the right path. The sign that popped into my head was tall poppies :). For 3 weeks I saw nothing – and it was around Remembrance Day Nov 11 ( I am Canadian) and though I saw poppies – in my mind they were not tall poppies and also I felt not really ‘fair’. Then – one day – as I was walking up a street I walk all the time – something compelled me to look over my left shoulder … and look backwards – and there on the front porch of a house was a painting of 50 tall red poppies. Amazing as I had walked passed it many times in the previous month and somehow never noticed it.

    I felt so happy and that this was a sign from the universe telling me I was on the right path.

    I now feel I need some more ‘specificity ‘ around my path. And am thinking on how to put this out there.

    I also believe I am now channeling the beginnings of more abundance in my life.

    ANy words of guidance welcome.

    AM planning to attend may 20 in toronto and hope to meet you. Heather

  45. Gabby- I recently lost my mother. While she was sick I asked for signs that I was on the right decision making path. Sure enough, I received them. While in the hospital chapel, I asked for a sign in twos and threes. When I turned to my mothers favorite bible verse, there were two dollar bills with a note “found a $1 while reading this and added one to it.” My dollar made it three. Further signs came, like finding a $2 bill on her kitchen counter, blue birds in my yard and more. Now that she is gone, I asked for another different sign from the universe (and her) that things will be ok. I haven’t received it yet. I’m not sure how to get myself back into alignment or if I’m asking for too much too soon.

    1. Rest assured that your mother is with you. Let yourself settle back into alignment. Pray, meditate and do whatever allows you to feel connected to spirit and to your mother. When we are grieving we often need to give ourselves extra time and lots of care to find alignment. When you feel grounded and surrendered, ask again. Know that the Universe has your back. All my love to you during this time.

      1. With her being sick and as her only child/caregiver, now that she is gone it’s been a bit of a challenge to find my way back to my practice. But I won’t give up. Thank you Gabby, for your response and encouraging words.

  46. Just perfect, Gabby, as it so often is when I tune in and receive your wisdom! My sign is the dragonfly and there she is, right in your post. Warm, happy tears of peaceful recognition. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and leading the way for so many of us to share ours!

  47. Thank you Gabby x

    I have several signs that show up. Feathers always make me feel connected. Ever since my miscarriage 3 years ago the presence of a monarch butterfly stops me in my tracks and I know I am connected at this point. I see alot of consecutive numbers with 22 or 222 being the ones that make me break out in a huge smile because I feel aligned. I realised at the beginning of the year that so many significant dates in my life were 22. The date my partner proposed, the date I started my business and my due date also.

    Much love to you and the beautiful work you continue to shine light on x

  48. Hi Gabby,
    Thank you so much for The Universe Has Your Back! I really thought it sounded a little crazy asking for a sign and for the longest time I couldn’t think of anything that I could use as a sign. There is an idea that has come to me several times over the last year and a half or so and this idea manifested itself as an email to me and I literally just said out loud, “Ok if this is the path I need to follow, I’m going to need a sign please. Let’s go with a star.”
    After I said this I thought it was too easy of a sign and I blew it off. I left for work that morning and the sky was cloudy so no stars. I thought I would have seen this star at some point during the day and I admit I had my eye out for it.
    I went to a gong sound healing that night. My friend has cosmic things all over her house, angels, moons, suns, crystals, but seriously no stars??? Anyway after this session I was on my way home and I was so relaxed from the experience I just had and at a red light I looked to my right and there it was….MY STAR! It was a gas station sign with a star in the middle lit up as bright as anything. I shouted “There’s my star!” Then a revelation came about, isn’t the sun a star? I was surrounded by suns/stars at my friends house that evening but I just didn’t see it.
    I am so certain of my path now, just not certain on how to get there. I will figure that out. I just wanted to take a moment and thank you from the bottom of my heart for guiding me into that practice!
    Lots of Love,
    Sharon

  49. Hi Gabby! Hello from Denmark!
    Thank you so much for sharing…
    I believe in signs and I have experienced many inexplicable things in that context…
    The Universe really do has your back <3

  50. Hi Gabby,
    What are your thoughts on synchronicity? Lately I am having a steady flow of random things that show up as I am thinking about a person or a subject. An example is today as I was thinking about someone I know, at that exact time, I passed a street and the name of the street was her last name. Yesterday, I randomly picked up an item at the store that is NEVER on my radar and later that evening there was a commercial on for the same obscure thing. I have been asking for guidance at a deeper level and as these thing continue to happen, I tell myself that these are God winks from the Universe that I am on track and to just keep moving forward. Since reading your post just now and watching the video, I plan to be specific and ask for a true sign! It has been some time ago that I listened to the audio version of this book and I loved it. It feels like time to give it another listen! Thanks for all you do to keep us tuned up and tuned in!

    1. synchronicity is the norm, we just block it. the more you experience synchronicity in your life the more you’re in alignment with the universe. nice work!

  51. Hi Gabby,

    I have seen the number 8 appear several times in my life in dates, events, etc. And have come to believe that it is a sign, but could not understand.

    What does the number 8 stand for? Thanks very much.

  52. Gabbie!! I’m so thrilled you posted this, I’ve had this exact question for a while. My sign came to me without even asking, I not only started seeing 11:11 too often on some bad moments in my life but also, I realized I kept seeing the “Superman” logo everywhere in every medium you can imagine even in places I travelled to that I never expected. I see it almost everyday it’s insane, it’s been like this for more than a year.. Still don’t know, but my gut-feeling wants me to believe that the man I’ve been wishing for so long is on his way (God knows I’ve has a terrible love history) Seems too good to be true, seems to obvious, but I cannot think of any other reason. Drives me crazy and scares the heck out of me as too how often I see “Superman”!! <3

    1. trust in the signs you receive and don’t block them. the language “it’s too good to be true” is sending out the wrong message. do your best to suspend your disbelief and reconnect to faith. Re-read The Universe Has Your Back.

  53. Hi Gabby!

    Your book is incredible, and it has changed my life for the better. Thank you for the support you give to others, and sharing your stories with the world!

    Something I have learned from you is to let go of praying for a specific outcome, and instead praying for the highest good for all. It has really helped me to begin to let go of things that I obsess over, and truly hand things over to the universe.
    Recently, I’ve asked for signs about specific things – pursuing a specific person, for example. Once I was finally able to let it go into the universe, I saw my sign a couple of days later…and when I did see it, it was like the pieces clicked together, and I remembered that I had asked for a sign. I also saw it multiple times, in different places.

    Is that how it’s supposed to be? I just want to make sure that I’m not manic manifesting, or twisting things to simply see what I want to see.

    1. you know you’re not manic manifesting when you feel like you’re in the flow and allowing. just pay attention to the signs and trust the intuitive hits you get along the way. the universe is also reminding you tha you’re on track.

  54. I always believed in the universe, and I must say you are completely right. Sometimes things happen and I think omg this is crazy, I’m on the right path and I feel it. Other times I try to manipulate the situation and I feel terrible. I need to continue to believe that the universe will guide me. My friends always tell me . It’s been crazy you just feel things and they happen. I guesss when I surrender and don’t overthink it happens organizcally. I’m not sure what my sign is right now but can it be that my sign can change based on the situation? In the past, with a situation it was a song. And now I feel like it’s not really appropriate for where I am in my life? Can it change? I see a lot of 111 but I dont Think it’s my sign, I think that tells me Bepositive and think of the situation because the angels are guiding me. I’m not sure what my sign is right now. Thank you!!!

    1. the first thought that comes to your mind can be your sign. What’s the first thing that comes to you right now?

  55. Thank you Gabby. I was just re-reading the book this weekend as we live in California since 6 years and are having a lot of blocks from staying ( immigration ,visas, job opportunity for my husband etc..)
    My husband received a job offer in Belgium, where we are originally from, and this weekend he told me that he think these are all signs from the universe to bring us back there ( he has read the book as well ;o) ). I get what he means but I started feeling so sad and tired, I feel so depressed considering going back. My whole body is reacting so strongly. Can the right direction make me feel this way? I’m doing my best to step back and let the universe guide us and I am practicing the steps from the book but I’m wondering if those physical and emotional symptoms can be my fears of going back or me being not aligned with that direction. How can I know? Merci Gabby

    1. there is a spiritual condition behind physical conditions. you may want to tune in and ask yourself where you may be fearful and lacking faith. make sure to care for your body with modern medicine but always pay attention to how your emotions create a stress response in your body.

  56. Hi Gabby, recently finished reading your book and loved it. After making a decision to put my dog to sleep recently (at the time I knew it was the right decision) the very next day I starting regretting it and have been carrying around guilt ever since. I constantly question my decision so asked the universe for a sign to let me know I had indeed made the correct choice. I chose a rabbit and immediately saw them everywhere! Live ones running around my dad’s backyard, photos of them on social media, on book covers etc but kept telling myself it was all a co-incidence and reverted back to telling myself I made the wrong decision. I also had feathers fall at my feet, a sign I know the angels are watching over but yet again let my ego tell me otherwise. Why aren’t I letting myself accept my signs? Why am I allowing my ego to run the show? It’s like I want to be told I did the wrong thing.

    1. it sounds like it may be time to read The Universe has Your back again. You’re resisting the grace and so let’s transform your fear back to faith;)

  57. Gabby,

    I Have just this year learned about you and some of your teachings. I now own your book, “The Universe Has Your Back,” and have read quite a few chapters! I have always been an intuit, and frequently meditate and look to center my energies, so that I may better receive the universe around me in all of its forms. There have certainly been slight differences In my practice and what I have read from you, although most times, I still find the guidance, connection and love from the universe. I guess you could say I am self taught in my spiritual practice, in that I never really conform to one system of beliefs or another. Rather, I find myself building my own personal faith through using my intuition and taking ideas from many spiritual disciplines. That being said, I have a question, one that I feel I know the answer to, however it seems to be different than what you speak of on this particular article.

    In regards to asking and receiving signs, I find that mine are rarely the same. However, I can certainly feel when I have been given a sign, most times. As an example, the other night I was in a bit of a tough spot emotionally, physically and spiritually, and happened upon an article that mentioned being able to ask for a sign within a particular time frame as long as one kept an open mind. so, I decided to give it a shot.

    I meditated for awhile, and asked the universe to give me a sign that I would clearly recognize within a 24 hour period, though I never focused on what the sign was, trusting that the universe would make it very apparent. I asked for this sign in an effort to seek reassurance that the universe was guiding me on a specific situation in my life, and that the outcome that I had asked for from the universe some time prior to asking for this sign, was aligned to what the universe itself had in mind for me. After getting home from work, I paused in my car for a moment, and allowed myself to recenter and calm myself from the busy day, before going inside. I opened my eyes and there it was! It was so blatantly obvious that the universe had heard me, that it sent a surge of energy up my spine and I almost came to tears, both of joy, and of deep, deep connection to the universe in that moment!

    For reference, I live right behind a church with a big open field in between. One night I had seen a doe and her two fawn peacefully standing in that field. It made me happy to see them there since I love nature in all of its forms, and it made me think of family.

    Unfortunately they had disappeared for some time, but on the night I asked for the sign, there was the doe!! totally unexpected, yet linked directly to what I had asked for guidance on! So, my initial question is do you think that I correctly interpreted that sign? And my follow up question is, how do I obtain a consistent, reoccurring sign from the universe? As it seems, most people have specific signs, yet I feel that I do not.

    Any help and guidance on this would be appreciated the world over! If not, I still thank you from the depths of my soul, for being a powerful source of spiritual knowledge that I can lean on when I can’t seem to wrap my head around what I am experiencing in my relationship with the universe.

    Sincerely,

    A fellow believer that the Universe has our back!

    1. your immediate reaction to the sign is your intuition. that is the correct response. it’s when you start overthinking it that your ego gets in the way. and you can have more than one sign.

  58. O my gosh! Gabby! No no no! In such amazement! So I was telling my best friend on Sunday that my universal sign hasn’t showed up. I choose a sign after I intend goals and I literally get so specific with my sign that it’s not hard to miss and it creates this “ah-ha! There you are. I see you” moment. Last year I chose a car. Specific car. Model. Colour. This year I chose an animal. Well. Truth be TOLD I am so guided. After telling my best friend generally I see my sign EVERYWHERE and this year it’s maybe shown up twice… it kind of made me not excited. Maybe i should change my sign? I go into this emailer to see what on earth am I missing? Am I “looking to hard” not surrending… read the universe has your back 4 times. Obsessed. Anyway. And boom… as I scroll down. There it is. The Dragonfly how special! How universal! From the card deck! Literally I gasped “ah-ha!” I almost started crying I was so shocked! Amazing! This is a special symbol clearly.

  59. Hi Gabby, great article and great lessons in #TUHYB This came at the right time for me as I have just finished making my website and set it live, done some ads in magazines and now am anxious about waiting for the signs as to where to take it next to get it seen. I’m going to ask the Universe for guidance – sometimes we get so locked down in the practical, we forget about the spiritual solutions! Or at least I do
    Thanks again, Gary

  60. Hello ma’am!!
    Myself Vrushali.
    I m just about to graduate and have passion in media. For me sometimes the sign of some specific cloud works. My dad is against getting me in media industry. But I had a gut feeling or believed in nature and saw that specific designed cloud up there.. And I gave media a shot and same day I visited a radio fm to allow me for internship. They did. Eventually my dad was less worried and he believed in me.
    As you said, we shall have faith and surrender to the universe.
    “We should follow our hopes and not fears… ”
    I hope I will get what I want.
    Sending positive vibes.
    Thank you.

    And another sign(maybe it is) I get to see a bharadwaj bird a breed in India. It have brownish red feathers. Whenever I see that bird, situation gets lucky..
    And that view of bird calms my anxiety as well.

  61. Hi Gabby!

    I’m reading The Universe has your back, and I always felt connected to the universe when I didn’t over think it. And things would happen and I would notice oh ok wow!! In the past my sign was a song, now I feel like I can’t find my sign. What should I do? Can our signs change through time?

    Thank you so much for making me learn to believe. I need to continue to have faith and listen to my gut.

    Tanya xx

    1. I love that you always felt connected when you weren’t overthinking. It’s our overthinking that creates resistance from the flow of the universe. you can change signs over time. ask for your sign and then stop thinking about it. let the universe do her thing.

  62. Gabby,
    I wanted to cheer you on as a modern day Guru that can lead people towards love & faith! We all need more of that in the world to make it a better place! My question is that I see repetitive numbers on the clock multiple times a day every day. My friends thought it was a coincidence when I wasn’t working a lot, but know I am beyond busy and I can just look up and smile. This started with 11:11, 12:12, 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, & 5:55. I’m usually thinking of work which is a selfless position for helping others, but it tends to not leave much for personal time. I pray for strength and see 9:11 now too. I do feel like I’m being guided, but is it to continue in my current field of work???

  63. Hi Gabby! I asked for a sign and I received it – I wrote a book in 2014 The Wedding Insurance Handbook – I was the Founder of WedSafe Wedding Insurance in 2000 and sold it to AON in 2007.
    I was asking G– and the Universe for a sign to let me know if I should get back into the wedding and event insurance business the public at large after a decade still did not know that you can protect your wedding milestone event. Literally 2 weeks after asking the for a sign one of the worlds biggest wedding & event coordinators in the world called and asked if I could find him wedding insurance coverage for a 2 million dollar wedding – Your teachings and wisdom WORKS!!!! I love you for all you teach me and sharing your wisdom. XO K

  64. Hi Gabby, I read your book last week and I have to say its one of the best books Ive ever had the pleasure of reading. In fact Im re-reading it and Ive brought a couple more of yours . Ive been waiting for my sign but I dont appear to see anything – im trying really hard not to get impatient and to learn not how to pre-judge .
    Thank you for everything
    xx

  65. Hi Gabby,
    I have listened to every single one of your books, except Add More Ing, which I’m reading. 4 years post divorce (after 24 years of marriage) 2.5 years into another relationship that is not seeming to be the fit and I keep thinking it’s me since that is my negative self talk, I am trying so hard but the old patterns are hard to break. I ask for signs and don’t see them. I try to meditate but have focus issues. I know this is a practice and I have to keep at it. It’s just so hard when patterns are so cemented in your brain. At 54 I feel too old and really want to find peace and a partner will come. I’m going to start listening again and keep it up. It will come! I keep praying…thank you for all you have given me. Your voice and wise words bring me peace. <3

  66. In the back of my mind I’ve been wanting to be guided to know what I should be doing for a career/if I’m on the right track. However, I haven’t even made the time to sit down & ask for a sign. I’ve been pushing this off constantly. I don’t know why. I’m one of those people that always has to be busy, busy, busy & even when I’ve meditated in the morning I haven’t even slowed down enough to really focus on what I want. -I know. That sounds counter-productive. Anyway, two days ago I got a message in my inbox about an article, about a woman who does event design & travels some of the time while she is doing it! I was blown away. A definite sign from the Universe! Someone who has a job that incorporates two of my top 3 loves – design & travel. I didn’t even know this was really possible. I didn’t have anyone to look to in the world to emulate before. So I got a sign, I guess, by maybe letting go?

  67. Thanks so much for diving deeper into this, Gabby! I’ve been meditating and asking for signs, and then when I do receive them, I’m often unsure exactly what direction they’re pointing me in. I recently was on the receiving end of a breakup that still doesn’t feel cosmically “right.” I was debating reaching out, and after reading this blog, approached from more focused alignment and asked for a sign that I was on the right path by leaving the situation alone. The first thing my quiet mind heard was “Pretty Woman” – seemed pretty obscure, but I trusted that I’d heard my sign correctly. Later that day, while I was struggling to let go, I stopped myself and thought “I’m willing to see this situation differently, and I’m willing to release it.” Not 30 seconds later, I opened Instagram and the first caption was “Pretty Woman,” exactly how I’d pictured it in my mind. I was overwhelmed with comfort – even though the breakup still doesn’t feel “meant to be,” I trust that I’m being guided to the right path. And thank you for sharing the light!

    1. yessss! the universe is showing you that you’re being guided. even when things don’t work out the way we planned there is still great guidance behind it. trust.

  68. Hi Gabby! I recently was asking the universe for a sign to move. I’ve been struggling with seasonal depression up in Portland and have tried everything up here to stay it happy but I still feel unhappy even though I have so much good here. Recently I went on vacation to California and while I was on the beach I asked the universe for a sign on if I should stay. About an hour later driving in Los Angeles I got an overwheling feeling that I have been wasting my time up in Portland and I have been neglecting this want/desire or possibly need for too long. Unfortunatly, this would mean me starting over in school along with my parter who isn’t thrilled about the idea of ever leaving the PNW. What are your thoughts on this?

    Thank you in advance!

  69. Hey Gabby,
    Like so many, this post came at the right time. I shall re-read your Universe book, but quick question. How can you identify or recognise when “your energy is ego-driven”? I had believed my question to the Universe had come through openness and love but upon reading your blog, I’ve began to doubt. Thanks a mil. Claire x

  70. Hi Gabby!

    I have a podcast called The Thinkergirls Pod channel and was sharing your 5 Steps to Spiritual Surrender for our listeners. I was sharing with my co host how it works when we got to the sign part, I didn’t mention what mine was and went through a few examples where I had tried and tested it and it worked. I had a big question though in my mind that I hadn’t yet received a sign for… as we were finishing up the show (still recording) she mentions my PEACOCK sign. It was all recorded! And it was the most epic moment ever. You would loose your mine if you heard it!

    My question is I am going through such a time of transition and am needing to surrender A LOT. If I have chosen a peacock for my sign what happens if I have more than one question… I think I am starting to confuse the universe (and myself)

    Ha.

    Kindest and so much gratitude for you and your work,
    Stacey x

  71. HI Gabby

    Thanks so much for this post… I have been dealing with some uncertainty in this area lately.
    My question however has more to do with the last part of the post where you touch on not having your peace and happiness rely on something outside of yourself. My question however has more to do with the last part of the post where you touch on not having your peace and happiness rely on something outside of yourself. I struggle, especially since just recently losing my Mother (only real family), with balancing my reliance on my husband. We don’t act codependent, but he is truly wonderful and my best friend. I enjoy life so much more having him in it, that I now have fear that if he were not in my life, I wouldn’t be as happy …Any advice how to love without losing your ability to see life can be just as fulfilling when you lose those people/pets? Thanks x

  72. Hello! I asked a question and I got a very clear answer which Iam over the moon excited about my question is since I was told yes. Do I continue to pray and meditate and manifest that witch I know is coming or do I literally nothing? I love your books your Amazing!

  73. Hi Gabby!!!
    I “Stumbled” upon your book “The Universe Has your Back” as I was on a 2 day drive. I listened to the whole book in one go on Audible and it blew me away!! As I was driving and hanging on every word I wish I could write notes as I listened, now I will listen again and make notes but now I know this book was 100% meant to come to me at this time. The next day as I started my 2nd day of driving I asked my Angels and Spirit Guides for Safety and Protection on my drive and to send me my sign. I had decided that my sign was a Rainbow. Halfway through my drive I was listening to music and I look to my left and what do I see a FULL complete, end to end PERFECT RAINBOW over the empty field I was driving next to …. I burst into a combination of tears and laughter hahah it was amazing!!!! Since then, which has only been about a month, I have seen Rainbows in some strange places and every time I see one, I get the biggest smile because I know that I am guided and it is the most amazing feeling. Thank you for everything! I just finished reading Spirit Junkie, today I bought Judgement Detox and May Cause Miracles 🙂

  74. Hi Gabby! Thank you for this post. I have read all your books and did your masterclass last June right after I quit my 20 year corporate career to follow my dream. Lately I had been feeling nervous that I made the wrong choice and then I kid you not out of nowhere my instagram started blowing up….I had not posted anything in a month…when I went to see what all the hype was about, it was a t-shirt saying that I had posted 6 weeks ago that said “ordinary life does not interest me”. 82 likes in one hour. I don’t get that many, the original post had like 10. I knew right away that was a sign that I should not give up. The universe shows up when you least expect it and most need it. Blessings to you and for all you have taught me. Sat nam

    1. Kelley I’m so glad this post inspired you to continue forward! Don’t give up love. Follow the signs and know I’m rooting you on… big love g

  75. Hi can’t wait to read the book I am buying it This week. So here’s my question if I want my sign to be a cat is that too general first off because I have a cat and secondly because cats are popular, so would that be a fair assessment of a sign?

    1. Your sign isn’t necessarily an animal, object or anything else that you love or want it to be. Your sign will come to you when you are in a place of alignment. How do you get aligned? One way is to pray and then sit in meditation. I recommend that you say a prayer of surrender and allow yourself to truly surrender to Universal guidance. Pray for the highest good. Turn over your fears, expectations and desires to the care of the Universe (or God, your inner guide, etc. – whatever resonates with you). Sit in meditation and feel what this surrender feels like. What does it feel like to know you are supported at all times? When you have fully turned over all outcomes to the care of the Universe, you will be in a good position to ask for your sign and let it come into your mind spontaneously and naturally. Trust what comes up.

      Here is some more guidance for you:

  76. Hi Gabby,
    I’m going through a seperation and it’s been very difficult. I have been worried that I won’t find love again. I really don’t want to be alone the rest of my life, I want to find my sole mate – someone who truly loves me just the way I am. I watched your video about asking for signs. I asked the universe/God for a sign that I will find love again and I asked that the sign be a yellow car. I drove to work that morning and as I closed my door and turned around to walk to work I saw the brightest yellow car staring right at me. I was in shock! I immediately felt a sense of relief and thanked God for this sign. This may be a strange question but when I’m feeling like love will never come it seems that at that time I see a yellow car. Is that a sign or does the sign only happen the one time.
    Thanks Gabby! Your book and videos have helped me through this very difficult time. God bless!

  77. Gabby-
    I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am to have found you and your amazing words. I just read the chapter of Universe Has your back about picking your sign just last week. So the timing of this post is great! The first thing that came to my mind was the color teal. The next day I was laughing to myself because it was everywhere. Teachers at my kids preschool wearing it, the receptionist at work, clients of mine. Having certainty of being guided is the most calming feeling I have ever felt. I have been a fan of Louise Hay for awhile and finding you has been one of the greatest gifts from the Universe. So thank you for your words and guidance.

  78. I keep seeing my sign. I had asked the universe if I should continue to keep a conversation going with a friend/potential love interest. When I feel like I should back off or start to feel insecure, I seem to get bombarded with the sign. This friend is crazy busy and usually only speaks when spoken to. So I keep wanting to let myself off the hook. But then the elephants (sign) are everywhere. Starting to feel like I’m just supposed to learn something I haven’t learned yet maybe.

    1. Get aligned and surrender daily to guidance. Pray and meditate and let the guidance come through. Check out my SuperSoul Sessions talk on the steps to spiritual surrender for more guidance on how to make this a practice. 🙂

  79. Dear Gabby,
    I’m so overwhelmed from the event that took place after reading your article, and implementing your guidance to ask for a sign. I just recently broke up from someone that I felt he is the one, I decdided to be brave and after 2 months of disconnection, I have texted him and suggested to meet. Before we met I’ve asked for a sign – for some reason I saw a wolf in my imagination. I was thinking to my self that it’s so weird as wolfs are loners and it’s not what “I’ve wanted to get as a sign” So after 2 Days we have met and while we were together he suddenly told me – I’m like a lonely wolf.
    A day after I have left him.
    I’m sad and devisteded, but also I forgot what I asked exactly that I’ve asked from the universe before asking for the sign, I only remember that I thought that i Wasn’t satisfied that I saw a wolf when I’ve asked for a sign and that my ex saison that he isn’t like a lonely wolf. I also have to say that it’s so unlikely him to use this wording as he always showed up as a family person.
    What do you think?
    What wasn the sign purpose in my case?

    1. Think about this… wolves usually live in packs. A lone wolf is the exception. That may be the way your ex sees you, but that doesn’t at all mean it has to be YOUR story. Perhaps this sign surprised you because you don’t yet identify with the qualities within you that a wolf symbolizes. Wolves have strong instincts. They are independent and strong. They are incredibly intelligent. Here is some good guidance on wolves as signs.

      1. Thanks Gabby
        I’m into this spiritual journey for 3 years. I have been searching for my soul mate and I really want to have my own family. I have started with Louise Hay, Dr. wayne Dayer and recently more and more listening to you and I’m digging into my soul. And just yesterday ive bought your book.
        I’m having hard time to “let go”. Lots of miraculous things happened to me during this spiritual journey of mine (career, income, new and real friends ext) and the only thing that left is my love life. So when I’ve asked for a sign and got the wolf – I remember that I said to my self “a wolf is a sign for being a lone, and I don’t want it” ! But now that the relationship is over and after I’ve read the link that you’ve sent me, maybe it’s my strong instincts that I deny.
        And still it’s so hard to know when it’s my instincts talking, and when it’s my fearful thoughts.

        1. Try this surrender practice. Getting into the habit of turning over your fears, desires and control to the Universe will help you to loosen your grip. You will begin to notice what it feels like to be in alignment and you will open yourself up to guidance. You can turn this into a 40-day practice and really focus on surrendering for the next 40 days. If you do that I know you will experience breakthroughs. Trust in the Universe’s plan! <3

          1. Gabby
            Thank you for replying back ! It is much appreciated.
            I feel so blessed that I have found you In this world during my spiritual growth, And also It’s the best timing I could ever ask. you are so accurate and clear that I can grasp your teachings easily and they resonate in me naturally.
            You are the perfect combination of Dr. Wayne Dyer & Louise Hay.
            You are truly gifted.

            Hopefully I’ll be able one day to attend one of your seminers in NY

          2. Thank you for your beautiful words. Wayne and Louise have gifted me with so much incredible wisdom and I am privileged to continue sharing their powerful messages in my way. So happy it all resonates with you xo

  80. Hello ! LOVE THIS ! I learned all this with the Universe has your back, that book marks a before and after in my life, thank you Gabby !! I have requested 2 times to the Universe to send me a sing, and I have received them, It feels so amazing, it´s like an invisible hug  , however, I have a quick question, not sure if is my inner witch trying to sabotage me but the 2 times that I saw the sing was on picture in social media, still counts right ? I repeat to myself what you say , that the signal will be crystal clear, and the pictures were SOOO CLEAR , sooooo, even though is a picture in social media, still counts right ? Please come to COSTA RICA ! 

  81. Hello Gabby,
    I wanted to share an experience I had regarding this particular video on receiving and trusting signs from the Universe. Yesterday, April 9, 2018, your SuperSoul Session segment came up on my YouTube feed. Love all things SuperSoul and I have recently been introduced to your teachings. During your Session, you mentioned that while in your office one day, you saw wild turkeys in your yard and later discovered their Spiritual meaning. Hand to God, not 15 minutes after I finished watching your video, I had three wild turkeys enter my backyard. They are around my area, but have not made an appearance since last fall.
    So, I took that as a sign from the Universe since I do not believe in coincidences, but what do you think it meant as I am not able to have children? Thank you!

    1. Turkeys symbolize not just fertility but also abundance, generosity, satisfaction in life, community and connection to the natural world. If you want to have children and it is not biologically possible for you, the turkeys may have shown up as a reminder that there are other ways to build family and that reproductive fertility is not our only form of fertility. If this resonates with you, let it be the opening of a conversation with yourself. Perhaps you are ready to consider other options. If that doesn’t resonate with you, look at the other things turkeys symbolize. What is speaking to you? You may want to let this settle and meditate on it for the next few days or even the next 40 days. Trust the guidance that comes through and know you’re supported.

  82. Hi Gabby. I listened to your book The universe has you back on audio and I tried asking for a sign. I went for the 1st think I thought of and it was a red Ferrari. I have know idea why other than I really like red Ferrari’s but went with it without over analysing. I am working on something new in my life (property investment) and hoping this is what will give me the financial and time freedom I really desire and I put my attention on this and asked for a sign if I was on the right path with what I want in my life. It showed up on a tv programme several days later as a small toy car being sold for auction and I was buzzing. The thing is after that I wanted to reaffirm I was on the right path by asking to see this sign again and show up some more and since then it has not shown up. Now I am confused as to whether I am no longer on the right path after it showed up the first time. Any ideas why it showed up and then stopped after asking again?

  83. Dear Gabby,
    I have a question regarding the signs from the Universe. Whenever I put a deadline for receiving my sign, I usually don’t get it within the designated timeframe. But as soon as the deadline is passed, I receive the crystal clear sign right into my face that just leaves me in astonishment and wow !!!! Just wondering why is this happening?
    Is setting a timeframe to recieve a sign part of controlling the outcome?

    1. The Universe works on its own timeline. I smiled when I read this… your guides are being playful with you and encouraging you to relax and loosen the grip. You are guided. You are supported.

  84. Hi Gabby, I have only just discovered your work and this is very helpful as I have felt strongly guided to offer vision board workshops. I have been working as a healing facilitator for a long time but felt that providing a space to just be creative with others would be very empowering. I realised I might not have the tools necessary to do this and then allowed the thought to just lift from me, and continued doing other work. Not very long afterwards I started to get tips and random emails bobbing up, about running workshops, what materials I would need, etc etc, all very helpful…and so I started just gathering this together. I had tried to push through with a specific date, as I had been offered a venue not far from me, which is very luxurious and could host a large group. At this point, although I was excited at this prospect, I also had quite a lot of fears about it….. and needless to say I only had a few who booked on. I suddenly felt like my idea was no good 🙁 Later I had a real good think about what I was actually tapping into, and I realised my ego had taken over and wanted to create this impression, which is not who I am at all. I have a small studio on my property where I see clients and so then decided to run much smaller and more regular groups. This felt more in alignment with how I want to support others and open them up to their energetic potential.

    1. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. What a perfect lesson. This is a story you can share with your students! This is what it means to take spiritually aligned action. Xo

  85. Thanks for this! I remember the owl story well.
    “If your energy is ego-driven, the responses will be muddy. If the energy is aligned with love, you will always get clear direction.”
    So true.
    I needed this reminder to keep my ego and rational mind out of it. I often get muddy esponses. Sometimes I think too hard about what my sign should be and then I judge that decision and add caveats to it such as “A red Jeep! But not the red Jeep that’s always parked down the street, because that’s always there so it doesn’t count.” or “An elephant! But not a cartoon elephant.” It’s not a suggestion from my guides, but a decision. I need to chill out, get centred, tune in and let it come to me. No judgment.

  86. Follow up:
    It appears that the Universe REALLY wants me to know that it’s listening and is guiding me. When I read this post earlier today I was drawn to that dragonfly image from the card deck. A few minutes ago I pulled a few cards from the deck and that was one. Yes, I know there are few “coincidences”, okay?? 😀
    (I’m amused.)

  87. Gabby! I love your beautiful soul! I’m reading your book and loving it, you really speak to me. Last night I was at the part about signs from the Universe and i prayed for gerbera daisies and this morning I saw my first one on a blog I check daily! One single orange gerbera daisy in a vase on a desk and I was so excited! I’m still so excited and grateful that the Universe sent me that. It will never get old I am sure. Thank You so much for sharing with all of us. You are very extraordinary.

    1. Thank you for being the light and being part of this movement! Trust in that sign. It really never gets old…

  88. Dear Gabby,

    I asked for a sign of an owl appearing three times in a specific day if my business project will work out the way I dream it. An owl appeared 4 times. However on a following day I saw 3 owls in a line in a library just when I was thinking about this project and was a bit scared if I will succeed. How should I understand both of these events?

    Thank you

    1. There’s no right or wrong way to tune into your guidance- just ask for what you need and miracles happen.

  89. Hi Gabby!

    I asked for my sign to be shown 3 times, but only saw it once. Does that still count as being a sign from the universe? Does it mean anything if it’s only shown once opposed to 3 as asked?

    Thank you.

    1. The key is to pay attention to your energy. Was that sign undeniable and crystal clear? When you received it, did you immediately know you’d received what you asked for? If you are confused or unsure, as it sounds like you might be, then wait until you are energetically aligned before asking again. Check out this blog post & video on what I call manic manifesting to ensure that you aren’t trying to manipulate your sign. xo

  90. Hey Gabby!! Thank you so much for everything you do! I recently practiced your advice of asking for a sign – except I assigned a specific sign to a specific question, for example: during meditation I asked a clear question (should I try to have another baby) cleared my mind and the sign I received was a very particular dog breed with specific coloring. I didn’t question it – I understood that if I saw this sign I should try to have another baby. Then I asked a separate question and waited for a sign to pop into my mind, it did and it was a different sign – Daisy’s – white petals with yellow centers. In both instances I saw my sign popping up in the physical world within the next few days – in the most unexpected places. (I did ask for guidance via signs for other questions I had and each time a different “sign” popped in my head – some I haven’t seen and others, like the dog and Daisy’s I have) After reading this a second time it seems you only have one sign that tells you if you are in the right path.. am I doing it completely wrong – or can I ask for different signs to affirm different questions? Thanks!

    1. You can ask for different signs to affirm different questions… the key is to pay attention to how you FEEL, make sure you are clear on what you are asking for, and not to manipulate or play magic tricks with the Universe.

  91. After reading this blog at work, I tuned into the feeling of surrender and committed to letting go of control of my situation. I was thinking about what sign or my symbol could be when I had just gotten a patient (I am recovery room nurse). I got distracted with work, but then looked down to see his room number was 3-26, which I always notice (because it is my birthday) and it felt like something! But I don’t know if I notice these numbers because they are my birthday or because they are a sign for me. And….. what does it all mean?!

    1. Well it can be both 😉 The fact that you notice them when you do is what matters. Your guides know this number sequence catches your attention. xo

  92. Hello Gabby!
    After reading the section of the book where you ask us to choose a sign, you said to just choose the first thing that pops into your head, a frog was the first thing that I thought of so I picked this as my sign. But on my way home from work, as I was rounding the corner to my house, I saw a deer right out in the open. It didn’t move, I even slowed down and made eye contact with it. It never ran away. I had to make the first move in leaving the deer. AND then when I got home, while making dinner, there was a frog on my window!! Which do I go with? Is it possible to have both? The deer really spoke to me, but then the frog was there! I am torn on what I should do. I love your book! I was introduced to this book in a FB group where we are all supporting one another in being alcohol free. Thank you!!

  93. I love your book and finding a sign really helped get me through my doctoral dissertation. I thanked the universe, chose my sign, I opened up, and waited. Then my sign was everywhere and right on target I finshed as my sign guided me. So thank you. My question is, do you change your sign for different thoughts? Am I considered greedy that I am wanting multiple signs? Thank you so much.

    1. Gorgeous Kelly! Be open to all signs from the universe and fully surrender to all possibilities and miracles <3

  94. Hi Gabby after reading this blog i was reminded of one my first signs i ever recieved! I was 16 years old and had recently been broken up with my boyfriend. I was laying on my bed with my eyes closed feeling sorry for myself and just resting. When all of a sudden i saw a picture of a blonde man with long curly hair. It came to me quick and was gone just as fast! However i never forgot it! So fast fwd a couple years later my then husband who i had met not to long after this vision had occurred was going through some things in a drawer and found his old first drivers license when he was 16. As he showed it to me i almost fell off my chair! It was him in my vision i had seen!I hadnt ever put it together before because in my vision he had long curly hair but the man i met and fell in love with looked very different! He was in the Air Force with very short hair!I also remembered that vision had him standing in a library which i remembered that day as well was i use to go to the library all the time to study and hed come to see me there at the library all the time! Also i had had another vision (sign) before meeting him before seeing a young boy about 4-5 years old sitting on a couch! I use to believe that could possibly be my son some day! But we had two daughters? So one day his mom sent him some old pictures she had found of him! Yep you guessed it! That sign back then was also him! My spirit guides were alive and well then telling me literally who i would marry! And that has been the love of my life for the last 38 years! So i just tell people trust in your instincts pay attention to your thoughts and have faith your spirit guides are with you sometimes loud and clear and others not so much! But when we are truly paylng attention they are communicating with us!!! Thank you for all yoiur great work your books your blogs and all you do! I learn so much from you!

    1. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your story. It offers up powerful spiritual proof for you and a lesson to tune in, ask for guidance and pay attention.

  95. I asked the Universe to show me 3 lions in the next 3 days if the guy I’ve just met really is my twin flame. Later that night I was surfing on Instagram when someone commented on one of my photos, mentioning (3 times) he’s a Leo, as my bio says I’m an Aries.
    I didn’t think much of it, but then few minutes later I got a message from another user whose nickname was a very common synonym for a lion. That’s when I started to freak out a bit but still tried to stay cool as a cucumber.

    I wasn’t convinced enough so today, as I was walking home from work, I asked for one more lion. Literally 2 seconds after that some boy passed me with his bicycle and he was wearing a shirt that said “I am with you” with a photo of two hands holding each other. And as I kept on walking, the next car I saw was a Peugeot (the one with a lion logo).

    And now I’m totally freaked out. My mind says this is just coincidence but my heart says “hey, you asked for signs, remember?”. Aargh. What should I do? I don’t know why it’s so difficult for me to trust the Universe 🙁

    1. Take some deep, grounding breaths and ask yourself if your thoughts are coming from a place of fear or love. The universe will present us awesome signs when we connect from a place of love. You got this girl!

  96. I’ve been struggling tremendously for months with my job. Working in Fashion may seem so glamorous to many but it’s NOT, at least it’s not for me. I’ve past the point in my life where material things have held such high importance and realize that life is too beautiful to allow such materialistic things define me. Needless to say, working in a superficial environment with people who have constantly judged me and are filled with false promises has gotten the best of me. It’s always been a mindset of mine to never leave a job before finding a new one but I’m at the point where I just can’t take another day of this anymore.
    After reading The Universe has your Back, I sat in my Zen Garden where I go to meditate and put it all out there to the Universe. I asked for a sign —A red cardinal to come and make me feel like it’s ok to let go ( I live in Florida and Red Cardinals aren’t all that common so I was testing the Universe) ..leave this position that is so unfulfilling and break free from this culture that is so depressing. Let go-cause things will shift after you break free from this weight that is pulling you down.

    Two day later, I’m sitting in my yard and a red cardinal flies on to a tree and starts singing away. Of course, I’m in doubt that the universe sent a sign this quickly and I ignore it.

    As the next two weeks pass, several cardinals come to me at different times. Again, I ignore it.

    This weekend, I am visiting my in laws in S Dakota. I’m sleeping in the guest bedroom which is mostly glass overlooking the beautiful landscape -and at 6:30 am, I am awoken by a big thump. I open my eyes and to my disbelief a red cardinal is flying into the glass window …NOT once but 5 or 6 times. SHe WOuld get up ..fly Tom the branch of the two tree and make another’s attempt at the window.

    At that very moment, I sat up and said —I got it Universe -Loud and Clear!!!!
    ITs time for a change.

    Thank you Universe & Thank you Gabby!!!

  97. Hi Gabby,
    I need some help interpreting a sign.
    I didn’t ask for a sign but something just kept appearing in my life.
    I was travelling in Europe a couple of years ago and at 3 separate times, I stumbled into places where Saint Benedict had a huge influence.
    I am convinced this must be a sign. And when I thought about it all 3 schools I attended growing up were Saint Benedict schools.
    I cant see the message though.
    I even read the biography of St Benedict but I’m still uncertain what the message is.
    Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    1. Turn to your prayer practice and your meditations, Greg, to get centered again. Ask your spirit guides for clarity. Stay aligned with the Universe and remain open to what comes. xo

  98. Yo Gabby (sorry if that sounds rude), I was thinking about this girl yesterday who left me like 4 years ago and idk I was feeling great while I thought about the things we used to talk about and all that, btw I still love her, she’s such an amazing person. Well anyway while I was thinking about her I just turned off my laptop and looked up and saw 11:11 pm on the microwave and the weird thing is that I didn’t even ask for a sign or anything. Soooo yeh what could this mean? I just thought I’d ask you because I tend to overthink so yeh lol (yeh I know I don’t talk professionally or whatever but I just find it more comfortable to talk like this you know hehe).
    Thanks a lot 😀

    1. Hey Tirth! It’s awesome what can happen when we open ourselves up to signs from the universe. Number sequences, like 11:11 are a great sign that you’re trusting your inner guidance. Thinking about your past relationship and reflecting on all the positive things, especially the love, can help you tap into new ways of finding love and connection in your life. XOX

      1. Hey Gabby thanks for the reply. I was wondering, could it also mean that if I keep that up that we(her and I) might get back together again? Just curious.

  99. I recently asked for a sign when i was feeling frustrated and angry with my partner. I was on a subway and said if i see a rat that means i should leave relationship. Someone then pointed out a rat straightaway and scared myself. Does this sound like a sign from the universe? I’m not sure i was in alignment as i didn’t pray before hand and now I feel confused.

    1. Bobby, if you’re feeling unsure and out of alignment, return to meditation. If you’re unsure if your inner guidance is connecting with a sign from the universe, check in and see if the experience feels like it’s coming from a place of fear or a place of love. Fear energy means it’s the ego speaking, while love energy will always protect and guide you <3

  100. Hi Gabby,
    I have received definite, amazingly orchestrated signs in response to my questions to the universe. My question is what do I do now? Do I just wait with patience to see these events unfold as per my questioning or should I be taking action to make it happen?

  101. Yesterday, I asked my guides to show me a yellow butterfly. I kept seeing butterflies throughout the day but not in the color yellow. Instead, I saw them in the colors orange, pink and blue. I got confused because I saw 3 different colors in the same day and even this morning but not in yellow. What does that mean?

    1. Hi Lisa! When collaborating with the Universe, ask for your sign and then be open to all the amazing possible outcomes. Check in with your inner guidance and see if the other butterflies mean something to you! <3

  102. Hi Gabby,

    My wife and I are looking for a house, much like you and your husband were before you found your mountain house. We asked for our sign (a bear) and yesterday we looked at a house and to my surprise there was a statue of two bears. I was surprised because I saw the sign but I honestly did not love the house or feel it was for us. My wife liked it more than me but it is overpriced and needs some work. If I did not see my sign I would have just kept moving but I keep going back to my sign being there. Could we be manifesting our sign with no real or deep connection to the Universe or what that sign means to us?

    1. Hi Ben! When seeing you signs, such as the bear, check in with your intuition. The gut always knows the answer. Ask yourself if the bear was a sign that this is the house or if the bear sign is letting you know you’re getting closer. See if your thoughts and feelings are coming from a place of fear or love. If it’s from a place of fear, it’s the ego talking and not your inner guidance and knowing.

  103. I had an intense brief relationship with a woman about two years ago. We stopped communicating but are still a part of the same organization, but different geographical areas. She and I were at the same conference recently and I unusually asked for a “sign”. I I wanted to keep my distance, but I was asked by her boss to help out the head table close to where the same woman was sitting. We were also asked to give a presentation together. Finally, it was decided that she be moved to the location where I am. Ultimately, those plans were changed. So were those signs I got, or just coincidence, or did the universe change course?

    1. It sounds like there is a lot coming forward to be healed around the past relationship. Showing up here and sharing is a beautiful sign that you are ready and open to the process. Our signs show up to help us be exactly where we need to be. Use this present time to practice forgiveness, towards yourself and towards the entire relationship. <3

  104. Hi Gabby!

    I just want to begin by thanking you for The Universe Has Your Back. It has really helped me with my anxiety and way of thinking. Thank you so much.

    More than a month ago I started visualizing and manifesting my SP. I started seeing a lot of synchronicities almost immediately (2, 22, 222, 2222, 44) daily. I asked the Universe to show me a red spider if this person and I will be in a romantic relationship again. I saw a red spider within 30 minutes. I felt completely in alignment during that time.
    A few weeks later while feeling more desperate, I asked for another sign a blue balloon. Never got it.
    A few days ago (I felt in alignment) I asked to see a green bunny. I never got it. However, I continue to see synchronicities.

    My question is… if you’re out of alignment do you not see any signs at all? If you ask for too many different signs will you not see them? Why do I not see signs but see synchronicities daily?

    1. Hi Thelma. If you’re feeling out of alignment, return to meditation to feel grounded and centered. Then when asking for a sign, check in with your inner guidance to see if you’re looking for and feeling things from a place of fear and that desperation energy you mentioned or from a place of love. Trust the signs from that place of love. XOX

  105. Hi Gabby

    Ive been asking the universe for a clear sign in relation to a question i have which I want answered. I’m asking everyday,I get the requested sign, but next day i might not, day after I will get it and i.might ask again later on in day to no avail.
    So what’s the issue? I feel I’m getting mixed signals!
    Cheers
    M

    1. Hey Mia! When asking for a sign, be open to all the amazing possibilities and outcomes from the Universe. It’s awesome if you’re seeing your sign so don’t worry if it doesn’t reveal itself every day! <3

      1. Cheers Gabby 🙂 I think also because I give a deadline i get more anxious if it doesn’t show up and then I find myself actively looking for it!

  106. Hi Gabby,

    I suffer with chronic anxiety and have asked for two signs. Firstly am I ok to ask for two signs? I feel unhappy in my marriage and have had a massive crush on someone I work with for 8 years and my feelings for him mean I am struggling in my marriage. I nearly left my now husband 8 years ago but was scared of rejection and comforted by the familiar and security. It is so unbearable as we now have a toddler and a lot of debt so can’t just leave. I can’t stop thinking about the guy I fancy and dream about him all the time. I even moved offices for 3 years and didn’t see him but still thought about him all the time. The thought of him makes me feel so happy and I he gives me butterflies. I have asked for a black sheep 3 days ago to guide me whether to leave my marriage and saw one but didn’t feel connected, however I asked for a half moon this morning to show that my crush fancies me and will approach me and within an hour I was seeing half moon shapes everywhere which I felt deeply connected to and made me feel really happy and hopeful. I just don’t know what it means as I’m not getting the black sheep signs yet so as it stands I should stay in my marriage but something may happen with the guy I like? Or maybe I need to tune in to the black sheep more? Or maybe I’m fearful of seeing them and scared to leave my marriage for the unknown/know I can’t afford to leave. What does it all mean? Is it really as simple as it seems? I wondered whether to ask for another sign to say if I should talk to the guy about my feelings but is that overkill? I am so down and it’s now affective my mental health even more and really need answers. It is all I think about. Please help.

    Thank you so much, I can’t tell you how much hope these signs have given me. I need the guidance so much and don’t feel I can make the decisions on my own.

    1. Melissa, sending you lots of love, healing, and peace. I believe that Source/God/The Universe works through therapists and skilled practitioners. It sounds like there is a lot coming up to be healed and it can be extremely helpful to get the support of a trained therapist. When asking for signs from the universe, check in with your inner guidance and see if you’re receiving those signs and acting from a place of fear or a place of love. Loving, grounded energy means you’re connecting with your signs and intuition. If you’re feeling fear and shaky, try incorporating a daily meditation practice to get back into trusting your intuition. <3

      1. Thank you Gabby I have been wondering whether to talk to someone. I have had the craziest day today though, I have been talking to my guides lots today and thanking their love and guidance. I choose love over fear. Whenever I feel fear I thank my guides and choose love. I instantly feel better.
        I have seen so many numbers today. It started with 444, then 000 multiple times, 999, 555, 333 and 222. I also asked for 323 if I should leave my marriage and have seen this twice. It has given me such a warm feeling and massive reassurance throughout the day. The timing has blown me away with what I am thinking and the numbers I see. It all seems to point to new beginnings. Can the 323 I asked for come in a different order? I also saw several alternatives today after asking for it, like it was telling me I’m sort of on the right track but a bit muddled? X

        1. Wonderful Melissa. I know you’ll connect with a great practitioner for support. It sounds like your signs are a beautiful reminder that you’re connected to spirit and open to big healing. <3

  107. I have been helped by much of the work you do but I am struggling with this aspect. Namely, I don’t fully understand how one can know the difference between a universal sign and wishful or magical thinking – especially when it comes to decisions that can have serious consequences (eg someone with cancer deciding whether or not to have chemo). It seems dangerous to me to put faith in a sign when dealing with a decision that could literally mean life or death. Is there something I am misinterpreting about this process? Please know this question is not meant to be at all disrespectful – I very much want to understand. Many thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Jo! Another way to look at asking for and receiving signs is trusting your gut, that inner knowing. When making decisions big or small, your inner guidance has the answers. This is not magical or wishful thinking but truly connecting with that inner wisdom. If that sounds or feels abstract, a daily meditation practice can help you connect with your intuition, get clarity, and feel grounded. <3

  108. Hi Gabby,
    I am really confused about asking for and getting signs. I have several vibe-stories that I have written but I don’t know if I am supposed to ask for different signs for each story or if I am always using the same sign every time I write a story or ask the universe to show me my sign. I have always been a complicated person and I’m thinking I’m making things way to complicated. Thank you.
    Debbie

    1. When things feel complicated, go simple. Try sitting quietly in meditation and ask for one sign. Or just close your eyes and sit in stillness. Be open to whatever sign comes up and trust your inner voice. XOX

  109. Hi Gabby and everyone reading!

    I read this post after a night feeling that I strongly needed to walk a more spiritual path, since I’ve been off track for a while. I read this and decided that my sign is going to be a lion. I then let it go, and forgot about it.
    Two days later my 2 year old daughter looked at me intensly and told me “Mom, I’m a lion, grrrrrr!”. She just began speaking, and never told me such a sentence before. I thought it was the cutest way possible to receive my sign from the universe and just wanted to share it with everyone here.

    With love from Sweden

    1. I love this!!! The Universe loves to give us winks and smiles, and deliver signs and guidance in ways that will really resonate with us.

  110. Is this is a good sign? I have been trying to manifest something lately and for awhile. I asked the universe 2 days ago to give me a sign. I asked the universe give me a number 119 as a sign. 3 days later i buy a random lotto ticket and the date said “11 september 2018”. Something clicked in my head and i remembered asking the universe for a sign of a number 119. I looked at the date on the ticket and converted 11 september 2018 to 11-9-2018, so it was 11-9 (119). Without realising the date when purchasing the ticket.

    Is this a universe sign?

    1. If it feels unmistakably clear to you, then it is the sign you asked for. The Universe does not try to play tricks with you or ask you to do mental gymnastics to understand the signs you have asked for, so if you feel like you’re forcing it or like you are unsure, then it’s not a clear sign. That being said, noticing guidance does require us to pay attention even to small details. The more you stay in communication with the Universe and stick to your spiritual practices, the easier it will be to discern when you are receiving spiritual guidance.

  111. Hi gabby..thank you for such an amazing article..i have a question though ! So i asked the universe to give me a sign for a question i asked.. i asked the universe to show me pennies..so I cleaned my purse one day and i found a currency note..i was impatient and i was clearing out my purse hoping to find the sign..but then i gave up..and I immediately found a note in the middle of some trash papers in my purse..that note was unexpected though ! I didn’t know it was there but I found it unexpectedly..can i take this as a sign from the universe or no ? Please help !

    1. Hi AJ! If you’re receiving messages but not sure of their meaning, I recommend sitting in meditation. Creating a meditation practice will help you tap into your inner guidance and get grounded. XOX

  112. Hello gabby..so i asked universe to show me coins as signs..pennies or dimes or any cash..and i found a man wearing the saint christopher pendant..is that a sign ?

  113. Hello gabby..i asked universe to give me coins like pennies, dimes or any other currency..and i found a man wearing a saint christopher pendant..is this a sign ?

    1. Hi AJ! Your inner guidance always has the answers. If you’re feeling unclear about your signs, try sitting in a moment of silence or meditation to get clarity. Be open to all the ways in which your sign/s can show up!

  114. Hey Gabby, appreciate your knowledge and experience around receiving guided messages..

    I’ve become almost a master at asking and receiving messages from the universe/guides but I’m embarrased to admit that at times I’ve become a master at not always listening, mainly around love relationships.

    I’ve been dating a girl for the last few months, some red flags, I guess enough to question if this is for me and was pretty much out the door after several attempts of hanging in to let the experience show me. My body spoke to me at times, that GPS inner feeling, think u get me here, feeling very off but wanting this to work !!!!!
    On my run the other day, I stated my usual mantra to the universe, asking if I’ve made the right choice in leaving this relationship, I clearly asked for a feather as a sign and to show it to me before I walked back into my house.
    I had a message on my cell from my girl that she had just finished work and found a feather. Literally, 30 seconds before entering my home a feather blew in my path, no lie.. That’s 2 …..

    I was in amazement , but the next day I started questioning, I guess it’s when I see her again, I see her greatness and not all the red flag stuff, maybe my fair tail block …….. I know this is my calling, to master this voice within, Why am I questioning such a powerful experience, and it’s not the first one.
    Any suggestions.. Thank you for your help. Love and Blessings

    1. The ego will alway resist the guidance from the Universe. Totally normal!!! Just continue to stay committed to your practice and let the light shine brighter than the darkness. xoxo

  115. “Not getting a sign is also a sign” can you elaborate on that. I often ask the universe and my higher self to give me signs but I never get them. I pay all the attention, its not like I might have missed them if they appeared.

    1. Not receiving a sign can often be a result of personal fears, impatience, or not trusting the process. Return to meditation and see what comes up for you. Know that it can take time, so please be patient with yourself and the process. <3

  116. Dear Gabby – I am so appreciative of your work, it has helped me through my painful divorce (i was devastated in a way I’d never knew existed) and subsequent dating adventures. I manifested my “ideal” man and began dating a man i adored. I asked for signs and very clearly received them, even during challenging times in our communication i seemed to continue to receive real signs that he was my future. I had asked for a specific number sequence to show up telling me he’s my future and ultimately where I am meant to be. I couldn’t believe how many times the sign appeared – completely without manipulation. Sadly he recently broke it off with me. I have been rereading your books, doing the exercises and I am feeling some relief. I have chosen to see it differently, I now see we weren’t as deeply connected as I hoped and want for my partner and ultimately this split must be a blessing. I am still very sad but believe my sadness is that it didn’t work out, not so much because of him, and am working on surrendering my future to the universe. I am confused why I saw the signs…many times. I am releasing him, I am doing my best to surrender but this has got me tripped up and to be perfectly honest is giving me doubt about signs. Much love to you and I am deeply grateful for your work.

    1. Thanks for showing up here and for this beautiful share Julia. If you are feeling confused and disconnected from trusting the process, please try incorporating a daily meditation practice. This will help you feel grounded, get clarity, and continue to surrender. You are on a lovely healing journey, so please be patient and gentle with yourself. I think a recent blog posts on relationships will also serve and support you: https://gabbybernstein.com/special-relationships/ XOX

      1. Thank you so much. I am working on moving past this and growing from the experience. I still don’t understand why I saw signs (which I deeply believed in) telling me one thing when the outcome ultimately wasn’t in sync with the sign. Has this happened to you before? I was shown this number sequence again just yesterday. Seeing such clear strong signs kept me believing in the relationship even when things felt hard bc I so firmly believed the signs, it also is giving me pause in letting go….the voice that says “what if the sign is telling you he really is meant for you”. He’s told me he doesn’t feel deeply for me (ouch) so I am forcing myself to let go but the signs are a challenge for me. I asked for another sign yesterday to let me know all will be ok and that I will move past this and received them right away so I suppose I still have faith in signs, but I am confused about the one in regard to my relationship bc it’s been so painful to move on. Have you seen this happen in other circumstances? A sign given but with a different outcome? Maybe the sign is just telling me I’m in the right path to love? I’m really struggling with this. Thank you for listening. Much love to you

  117. Hi Gabby,
    I have asked for a specific sign while I was undecided about a decision but did not receive it. However, I still went ahead with my decision and after that I started to see the signs which I had asked for previously. Is there any reason why this happened? Thanks

  118. I asked the Universe to show me two red balloons as confirmation of a reunion with a certain person and yesterday around 2 AM, I woke up to a commercial that had hundreds of red balloons in it. I choose to think that this was NOT a coincidence but the Universe confirming/affirming me. And I am thankful for that.

  119. Hi Gabby,
    May I know can we ask for different symbols each time or do we have to stick to the same symbol everytime we asked for a sign? Thank you

    1. Hi Yin. If you are feeling confused, return to meditation. As you sit in stillness, ask for a sign and then trust that inner guidance. It may be a sign that you’ve seen before or it may show up as something entirely new.

  120. Hi Gabby, I just stumbled here. If the universe can give us everything we want and you say surrender and not be fixated by the outcome, doesn’t that mean we are not manifesting what we want? Doesn’t that mean we can’t have what we set our minds to have and we can only have what the universe wants us to have?

    1. Hi Jane! It’s good to get clear on what it is you want but then surrender those desires to the universe. By setting an intention for the highest good for all and letting go of the outcome, you open yourself to beautiful outcomes. Trying to control or fixate on only one specific outcome holds us back from receiving.

  121. Hi Gabby, if we surrender the outcome to the universe, how are we able to get what we want? Isn’t the law of attraction about being able to get whatever our heart desires? Then if that’s the case, we should be able to get the outcome we want even if the process of reaching the outcome isn’t how we imagine but the outcome should be what we want is it not?

    1. Hi Jan. It’s good to get clear on what it is you want but then release those desires to the universe. By setting an intention for the highest good for all and letting go of the outcome, you open yourself to endless possibilities, rather than trying to control the outcome and not being open to how and when it shows up. <3

  122. Hi. I always talk with universr and universe guide me in all terms, but from past few days I am really depressed and I have obsession. Some of my cousins I was not getting good vibes they abused me . Firstly if someone abuses me I can’t reply but I felt as if universe told me to respond them and cut off with them so I did. But then I felt suicidal. I try to talk with universe and universe says whatever happened that I cut off with that abusive people was good as also they try to harm me. So shall I go by how it is going? I am confused as I am in depression and people laugh at my depression and be very rude.so I am internally became weak … please help what shall I do . The people who are rude and mean I got angry and say and cut off with them . Is this sign from universe to stay away with harmful people also to stop them to being rude with me

  125. Hi Gabby, I’ve recently joined the Miracle Membership and you’re changing my life to be so much more fulfilling than it ever was. I’m mediating daily and surrendering to the universe and to God and asking for guidance. Recently I asked the universe for a sign whether my dad was present as a spirit. He died when I was 11 (I’m 56). The other night my clock radio turned on at 3:03 am – we don’t use that radio and in fact when I checked the alarm was set for 5:15 am, not 3:03. I also saw an aura and a huge wind swept through the room and then everything went still. My husband witnessed it as well. When I told my mom the next morning she said my dad died at 3:00 am. Wow….then yesterday I was driving and I was listening to an am talk radio show when the station changed to fm music…this is all so strange and yet I’m finding a lot of comfort. I really do feel the universe is supporting me and miracles are happening. Thank you so much for this gift. xo

    1. I’m also seeing a lot of 4’s. This am I woke up and saw it was 2:44 am, then this afternoon I saw 3:44 and then 4:04 and then 4:44.

      Also I just signed up for your workshop at Kripalu in May. I’m so excited to see you live.
      xo

    2. This is gorgeous Dana! Thank you for sharing here and for being part of the amazing MM community. Grateful these tools are serving you. XOX

    1. Hi Lily! It sounds like you’re receiving the sign that you asked for! If you’re feeling uncertain or it’s not clear, return to meditation. By creating a daily meditation practice, you’ll tap into your inner wisdom and guidance, get grounded, and have a sense of clarity. XOX

  126. Hi Gabby:
    Thank you for your inspiration.
    I have honestly been asking the universe for a sign , a certain band for guidance for over a year, I get my sign every time I ask with out fail. ., My frustration is that nothing is happening with what I am asking the sign for , I feel that I am blocking the universe from delivering. I know the universe would not deliver my sign if this was not meant for me.

    1. Hi Suzanne! If you’re feeling unclear about your sign, return to meditation. Incorporating a daily meditation practice will help you deeply connect to your inner guidance, get clarity, and feel grounded. XOX

  127. Hi Gabby, I asked the universe for a sign regarding a love interest. I asked to hear a certain song I associate with them within under a 24 hour time period. I heard the song 3 days later. Is this a sign in itself? I have to admit I didn’t expect to hear the sign within that time period as it seemed so unlikely, then I heard it when I wasn’t thinking about it at work. I’m very confused about this person (nothing has happened between us yet) and this just seems to be further confusion rather than clarity… Many thanks, Emma

    1. Hi Emma! When asking for a sign, be open to all the ways that it might show up for you! If you’re feeling unclear, try meditating so that you can tap back into your inner wisdom. XOX

  128. Hi,
    I recently asked to see signs about 2 choices I had. I asked to see 2 different animals – a sloth for choice 1 and a llama for choice 2. I saw a sloth firstand then repeatedly after that. Then, I saw a llama a few moments later. Ive continued to see both, so I’m not sure what choice I’m being guided to. Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Amy! It sounds like you are receiving your signs! If you aren’t clear on how to connect with their meaning, try sitting in meditation. This will help you get some clarity. When things feel complicated, go simple and allow yourself a calm moment of silence to get grounded. XOX

  129. Gabby. While I was travelling I asked the Universe to give me a sign if a man, who I am not together with yet, is the right guy for me. I asked the sign to be a Dolphin. The reason I asked for a Dolphin that morning was bc I went on a boat tour that day and I knew it was unlikely to see Dolphins at this time of the year. I was hoping that by seeing one I would have the answer to my question. When I came by a street stand I went closer to see if I could discover a Dolphin in the jewelry collection. It was three tables full of vacation jewelry and only ONE, a picture frame, had a dolphin on it. It gave me some peace, but I knew I tried to trick. Two days went by and I was looking for another evidence everywhere I could. On the third day I arrived at a new destination of my travels and I finally haven’t been thinking about the dolphin anymore.

    The next morning I sat nearby the hotel pool and I decided to meditate while waiting for for a tour to start. I had let go of thoughts for a little while and felt in peace when this thought came to me: did you see the dolphin painting by the pool area? I jumped out of my chair and walked over to the pool and indeed there were dolphins painted to the floor all around the pool!! I had not noticed them the previous day!!!

    Gaby, is this the true sign I had been looking for?

    1. When asking for a sign, be open to all the ways in which it can show up. Get clear on what you want, but then let the Universe do its thing. We often receive messages in experiences in a totally different way that we would ever imagine or expect. If you’re feeling unclear, ask for guidance and clarity in meditation. XOX

  130. Hey Gabby!

    Thank you for this! I recently had a very tough breakup. He cheated on me and I ended it. I felt like my world ended. But, two months to the day after the breakup, I came across your 5 steps for spiritual surrender. I was ready to move on and put them into practice. So..I asked for a very clear sign that this relationship was behind me and I was going to be ok! Not even 5 minutes later I saw my ex couldn’t miss him. A week later I gave it another try. Got in my car, getting on the freeway there are 5000000 cars everywhere…. same thing. I ask for a sign, pulling onto the freeway ramp, there he is. And then the same thing happened the next morning. I miss him everyday, but the relationship is over. I felt like from the beginning I was being told this is about him and not me. I don’t know what the Universe is trying to tell me, but I’m kinda afraid to go outside now! Lol.

  131. Me and my Gf of 5 months broke up with me becasue of my ocd issues and her feelings changed towards me. Her parents and friends told her to leave the relationship and she left me when this problem repeated over and over again. She was really good person and i was always honest with her with what i was going through. I loved her deeply but she was in that state of confusion and she pushed me away and strictly told me to move on. It’s been 2 months no contact. I even blocked her on instagram yesterday so that i can move on. But previously i asked God for a sign that was a red button as a symbol of reconciliation. And today morning i saw the sign and the time was 11.11am. I always see 11.11 and i confused whether to move on or keep hopes. My ex told there is no chance of getting back and don’t keep any hopes. She also told we can be friends once i move on. The only means of communication is WhatsApp now. I have blocked her on instagram. Please help.
