How do you ask for a sign from the Universe? How can you tell when you’ve gotten your sign? What if you don’t get your sign?

I hear these questions all the time! If you’re confused about how to ask for a sign, you’re not alone. That’s why I’m dedicating this post to how to ask the Universe for a sign and trust the guidance you receive!

(For a deeper dive, this is a topic I cover in my books The Universe Has Your Back and Super Attractor.)

How to ask for a sign from the Universe

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.

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

Just let whatever comes to your mind become your sign. Allow it to come to you naturally and commit to what you hear.

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 know you’ve gotten your 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.

The guidance truly is limitless! You might be a little psyched out when you first start receiving signs and noticing lots of synchronicities.

The signs and synchronicities might seem a little too good to be true, but they’re not. This is simply the miraculous way of life that’s available to you when you surrender to the Universe and have faith in the guidance you receive.

The keywords are SURRENDER and FAITH

I'm in awe of the magnificent guidance available to me | Super Attractor card deckMany 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.

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 (more on that below).

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’re having a tough time letting go of an outcome. Maybe you’re hung up about a crush or wish an ex would come back to you. Or 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.

Be patient and trust in the Universe’s plan

Some signs come quickly and some take time. If you don’t get your sign right away don’t worry. You may need to clear some fears or strengthen your faith before you can get it.

If you don’t get your sign, that’s a sign, too

trust the universe gabby bernstein card deckNot receiving your sign is guidance, too. If you asked the Universe to confirm you’re in the right romantic relationship and you don’t receive your sign, that’s a sign! Take this direction seriously.

I’m not saying to break up with your partner overnight. But I am suggesting that you look more closely at the fundamental issues that need to be resolved.

You’ll always exercise free will, but consider the signs from the Universe (or lack thereof) as supportive direction on your path.

Your true power is the love and peace within you

Gabby Bernstein | ask the universe for a signDo you tend to feel impatient after asking for a sign? Consider that your impatience may be blocking the sign!

Often when we find ourselves impatient, it’s really because we don’t trust in the outcome. We’re afraid that something won’t happen the exact way we want it or exactly when we want it to happen. (Try this tip to practice patience.)

Anytime 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! It’s Marise here. I recently manifested for a guy to like me and he is British. After the manifestation, I have been seeing tons of repeating numbers and sometimes random stuff about the country England in general. But mostly repetitive numbers. I have asked the universe to show me a sign if my manifestation is working and so far I’ve been seeing repetitive numbers constantly! And I always feel a sense of joy and lightness as though he is already mine and I am fully confident. I also thank the universe everyday and I am extremely grateful for all it has given me. Does this mean my manifestation is coming really close and it’s happening? Would love to hear your opinion Gabby 🙂 <3

    Much love from,
    Malaysia <3

    1. Wonderful, Marise. Unfortunately, I can’t answer your questions for you. If you’re not sure how to interpret the signs and guidance that you’re receiving, then I suggest turning to your spiritual practice for clarity. Simply begin with this prayer: Thank you universe for revealing to me what I need to know. Then, as you sit in meditation, focus on being open to receive clarity and guidance. xo

  2. hello Gabby and the team!

    I had a burning question! so I did receive a clear sign like a day before yesterday. I was absolutely amazed! but here’s the problem…I still feel like disobeying the sign and following the path of the ego…because that has been my plan for a really long time, and it’s so suddenly that the universe just opened my eyes and pointing elsewhere…what do I do

    so here’s the story…

    I was in some career path related dilemma, hence, a huge life decision was involved in this….
    I had asked the universe to show me either, a white feather with brown spots(for my ego-based desire, which is a job I’ve desired for a very long time), or on the other hand, a black feather(for a passion I have wanted to follow)…I had decided that whichever the universe shows me first, would be of the highest good…and you guessed it!….out of all odds and expectations(as black feathers are slightly rarer in my experience as compared to the white ones) I am handed a packet full of BLACK feathers by someone just the day before yesterday! (I had even come across a feather that was very close to black, but not fully black a few days before, but I chose to wait… so that I get one absolutely black in color that would serve as a very clear sign…and viola! the universe was committed to showing me the right path ….it happened!)

    but here’s the problem… I’m not doubting the universe here(fully trusting it)….it should be a moment of celebration!…as the universe honestly showed my best path(which could not have been a coincidence)…. the problem is….my egoic mind still wants to try for that job! (with the white feather sign)…..

    so my question is….is it a bad thing if I choose to disobey the signs of the universe?….are the consequences gonna be disastrous?…..will I ruin my life filled with regret? if I choose to go with the ego…Does this mean that it would be impossible for me to manifest this job that I want? …is the universe gonna get angry with me and not guide and support me anymore?…what should I do here?!….

    please let me know!… I really appreciate ya’ll’s work!

      We appreciate you too! You got this.

  3. Hello. I am struggling with this and I can’t reach a decision so I really would appreciate your help. I’m a sceptic. Always have been. But heartbreak made me starting to as signs for the universe. Well, once. One morning I saw this tik tok where a girl said if you’re unsure of something ask the universe to give you a sign. So I did it. I had recently broken but I felt, and secretly still do,that my ex is my soulmate; me, the sceptic! But I didn’t have faith in myself so I decided to ask the universe. So I asked, if my ex is my soulmate, to hear someone scream the word ‘hedgehog’. And it happened. That same day. That was June 2020. I don’t now what to believe. I don’t want to get but to my ex because she hurt me, but I still love her, and what if it’s meant to be? What should I do?

    1. Hi Mara,
      I’m so sorry to hear you’re struggling. Big, big love to you.
      As far as the signs from the Universe, if you’re needing clarity, often the best thing to do is go back to a meditation practice. Gabby has some free ones:

  4. Hey, I have a question! I asked the universe to show me a purple elephant as my sign. Since then I have seen a couple of pinky and blue coloured elephants but I know it would be purple if it was supposed to be my sign. Last night I had a dream about a purple elephant – is this my sign or if not what does it mean? Thanks!

    1. Hi Hanna!
      Once you ask for your signs, release your expectations and surrender the outcome. You’re always being guided and protected– you just need to create the space for the sign/guidance to come through. Dreams count!
      Having said that, if you’re not sure how to interpret the signs that you receive from the universe, it’s an opportunity to return to your meditation practice for clarity.
      Gabby has some great ones. Here’s a good place to start:

  5. Hello. I have a question, I have been seeing heart shapes randomly. I did not ask for that sign it just happened. Every time I forget about it it shows up, and I wanted to know if its some sign from the Universe or just a big coincidence. Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi Rebecca. It sounds like the hearts you are seeing could be signs from the universe, letting you know that you are always being guided and supported.

      If you’re not sure how to interpret the signs that you’re receiving, then Gabby suggests turning to your spiritual practice for clarity. Prayer is the medium for asking for guidance and meditation is medium for receiving guidance. Here is a meditation that you might like to try: for more insight on the hearts that you are seeing.


  6. Hi Gabby. I am a fan of your work. Recently I asked for a sign from the universe to confirm to me that I should pursue a certain training course. The sign I asked for was two pink balloons with another one either green or blue. I wondered was it too specific. Anyhow today (a few weeks after I’ve asked for the sign) I saw a pink and yellow balloon. It was on a detective programme I was watching. It didn’t dawn on my straight away that it may be the sign or a sign. I am a little confused and not sure if it’s a sign from the Universe. It’s not what I asked for particularly. How I felt about it when I noticed them was quite positive and then I started wondering about itAny insights would be appreciated.

    1. Great question, Jane. In this blog post Gabby wrote:
      “The medium Colette Baron-Reid says that your sign needs to be like a billboard, so clear that you cannot deny it. So what happens when you see your sign, but you don’t feel connected to it?

      If you’re not sure how to interpret the signs that you’re receiving, it’s an opportunity to ask for clarity via prayer and receive guidance vie mediation. Here is a meditation to try:


  7. Dear Gabby: I asked for a sign (different ones) but on the same thing… they always appeared and gave me a positive message. I even got signs without asking for them (also on the same thing)… But the last time I asked for a sign wasnt responded… I guess that was my ego, why do I keep on asking on the same thing if I already had an answer and deep within me I know I have the Faith to trust and that’s what I have to do ? Xoxo Ale.

    1. Hi Ale,

      If you’ve made a habit of turning outward for spiritual guidance and are relying on signs, this may be an opportunity to practice turning inward for your answers.

      In these moments our work is not to force anything. Instead, I suggest you take the pressure off your practice. When you meditate, do it with the goal to feel good. Let it be a time of relaxation for you. This way you can start to reconnect to your inner voice and enjoy the process, and as a result you’ll strengthen your connection to the universe as well.

      Here is an exercise that I think will resonate with you:
      I hope this serves you.

  8. I have had two instances of asking for a sign and receiving it since reading Gabby’s book. Each time I ask for a sign, the signs that I ask the universe to show me just come into my brain out of nowhere and I don’t put much thought into it or overthink it. It just feels like those words were meant to pop into my head.

    The first time I asked for a sign that a loved one would be okay as she was going through a tough time in her life and the sign that came to me was a sunflower. The next day I went to IKEA and saw a single stuffed sunflower decoration on a table and the next night my sister was in my dream; she told me she was okay and there were sunflowers surrounding us in the dream. It was the most vivid dream I’ve ever had.

    The second time I asked for a sign in regards to a relationship and my sign this time was a tiger. I figured this would be a hard sign to receive as tigers don’t really come up much in day to day life. That night in my dream there was a picture of a baby tiger on the wall of wherever I was (I don’t remember any other aspect of the dream besides seeing this) And then a few days later my good friend that I text with daily (and has never texted or brought up the word tiger) sent a text message with the word tiger…It was just such a random sign to ask for and the fact that after 10 years of us texting daily as friends she said the word tiger referring to someone was wild.

    1. Kasey, this is wonderful! So thrilled for you!
      Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with us.
      Big love xoxoxo

  9. I feel this is a powerful an beautiful exercise yet I got very anxious with it recently. I’m very new to this so I really want to get it right. Yesterday I had hard time picking up my sign. When I closed my eyes I could only think of sparrows but I see them from my window everyday. Then I chose eagle but not sure how much I’m connected to her. Should the sign be something that we feel connected to?

    1. Hi Asli,
      Great question. You may be overthinking this a little.
      Perhaps try going into meditation and then writing down the first ‘sign’ that comes to you when you’re done.
      That way, it’s coming from a place of calm and clarity. <3
      Gabby has some free meditations that you can check out here:

  10. 6 months ago i started a medium mentorship programme where i connected with my guides. they are very vocal and have been pushing me with re to a romantic relationship with a male friend. I would love this but have shared my feelings with my friend and they werent reciprocated. My spirit guides havent let up about this and i am very close with this friend. So i asked for a sign to see butterflies . i chose butterflies as its winter so i thought that would test them. Well in 2 weeks i have seen butterflies everywhere, on movies, amazon, social media, vision boards, wall art, books. but whats more fascinating is my male friend also keeps seeing butterflies. Whilst i am truly grateful for the signs and excited, my ego is saying yeah well nothing has changed and its left me confused what i do next if anything. i didnt expect the sign to show up so abundantly for me but also for him too .

  11. I asked for a sign about a future relationship with someone that we would get together. I asked to see a butterfly. Since i have seen a butterfly 11 times on social media, on movies, wall art, books, even road signs. The person has also seen butterfiles but doesnt know why. but its great i have the sign it will all work out but then i feel in limbo as he is exercising free will and whilst he messages me every day, we only see each other when i suggest it and i am just presently his friend . I think reading this i am being impatient and probably blocking it

  12. Hello! I am currently considering making a big change in my career after 9 years. I asked the universe about some specific guidance for the path I’m considering, and I asked for the universe to show me my sign of an owl. I was with family today for the holidays and someone received a mug with a owl looking figure on it. I wasn’t entirely convinced this was my sign, it felt a little forced. Well, I put it out of my mind but then when I got home tonight I took my dog outside and immediately heard an owl very close by. This has never happened before in my area, I know owls are probably in the open spaces near my city but never have I heard them or saw them. As I was walking I heard more owls so close in the pine trees that surrounded me. I was pretty convinced THIS was my sign, but still I questioned…perhaps I don’t know what an owl in the wild sounds like maybe it’s a dove (we have a lot of those) but then the owl flew across my path in front of the street light, so I could no longer question it. They kept on with their beautiful hooting and flying from tree to tree, there were several of them. In that moment I was so deeply moved by what I was hearing, seeing and feeling that all I could do was cry and say thank you. The universe has my back and I know what I need to do. Thank you Gabby, for all of the wisdom you share to anchor people like me, into something that makes sense.

    1. Amazing! Thank you for sharing your miracle moments with us, Tiffany. Your story serves as a beautiful reminder that 1) we are always being guided and supported, and 2) to trust the guidance that comes through. You’ve got this, sister. Sending you big love! xoxo

  13. Hi Gabby and the Team,

    What does it mean when you receive your sign over and over again!? Is it the universe trying to remind you to get through with the plan?!
    I asked the universe for a very specific and rare sign a while ago and I received it within a day. Ever since then, I’ve been confronting the same rare sign whenever I get doubtful about my decision. (my plan got pushed back because of this whole Covid-19 situation.)

    Also, can I ask the universe to send me a sign whenever it’s the right time to move forward with my plan?!

    1. When we receive a sign from the universe it carries the message that we are being guided and supported. So continuing to see your sign is a reminder to strengthen your faith and trust in the universe.
      As far as your second question, yes, you can absolutely ask the universe to for a sign to indicate when it’s time to move forward. In the meantime, here is a practice to help you turn inward and tune into your inner guidance system:

  14. Hello! First I’d like to thank you for your wisdom and guidance.

    I recently had a conversation with the universe and asked for a sign to give me clarity towards a relationship I’ve been back and forth on for about 9 years (Yes, almost a decade!) I asked the universe to show me a specific sign if I should make things work with my ex partner who has been trying to return back into my life. I was very specific about my sign. A week or so in, without even searching for it or thinking about it, I got my sign exactly as I asked for. But, I didn’t feel excited, instead I felt confused and unsure. I questioned it. It just didn’t feel right. I read your blog and your suggestion on trying to meditate and get centered again, so I did and I asked for the sign again. Well, another week or so pass by and I got the sign AGAIN. By this time I just knew this was the universe talking to me. However, I still feel confused. Any advice or comments on why after the second time of getting the sign I asked for I’m still questioning it? I trust the universe and all other signs I’ve asked for / received have been spot on and exciting. But this one feels different. I would love to get your feedback on this.

    Thank you for all you do!

    1. This is a great question, Demi. When we receive a sign from the universe, it carries the message that we are being guided and supported no matter what. That being said, this may be an opportunity to turn inward and tune into your intuition rather than look at outside signs for guidance. Here are some practices to help you do that:

  15. I am young i’m 13, i’m just starting my spiritual practice and i’m not quite sure but i think i’ve started my journey i just didn’t know. I am struggling to know what to do and i need to be more connected and after this i asked my spirit guides and i just really need help.

    1. Wonderful, Maggie, that you’re willing to be more spiritually connected. Here are some things you can do to strengthen your practice:

      I hope this helps!

  16. Hello. I just have a few questions. Well of course about SP. We text and see each other from time to time, but somehow it’s impossible for us. And I said fine, I’ll let him go. No matter what. But at night, I have such vivid dreams about him. So real. For onec, I said, I’ll forget him, and I dreamed that he send me a text sweet on. And on next day, the sweet text was there. Olso, I dreamed he said I want you, be with you. My family knows about you. And I rememberd saying in my dream to my friend, I think I am in relationships. Is this a sign that it’s coming. Also, I saw his initials, name, and Pic of home town everywhere. What all this means? Also, I asked God/Univers are we meant to be, and I asked for white dove, and saw 3.☺️
    Thank you.

  17. I wanted to share an incredible story about receiving my sign and to thank you, Gabby, for your wisdom and guidance!

    We recently put our house on the market (in a city, during a pandemic and in an off-season for the real estate market) because we got powerful guidance to move ourselves and our two kids to a whole new place and start a fresh chapter. It has been incredibly hard to “keep the faith” that it will all work out and the house will sell eventually, as showing after showing have resulted in no offers.

    I sat down to ask for a sign that we are on the right track and should stay the course, keep the house on the market – or not. I listened to your guidance in this area – to trust the first thing that popped into my mind. I was reminded of comedian Jeff Foxworthy. Years ago, he had a bit in which he ended every joke with “Here’s your sign.” I thought, almost jokingly to myself, Maybe I should have Jeff Foxworthy be my sign. Your guidance recommended that we don’t question the first thing that popped into our heads, so I said my prayer and went with it. Wondering how the heck Jeff Foxworthy was going to come into my life randomly. I felt goofy and really wondered how my brain came up with this as a sign to ask the universe, but I trusted the process.

    Four days went by and I was mad at myself. Why would I pick this sign? There’s no way I’m going to see/hear/read this random pop culture reference. I kept resisting the urge to force it, but I was so impatient and losing faith that anyone has our backs in this, let alone the universe! I even said to my husband, maybe we SHOULDN’T sell our house and leave, since NOT seeing a sign is a sign. I let the whole thing go and put it out of my mind….

    Well today, I was shopping at 5 Below, looking for stocking stuffers. I came across the board game section. I had no intention of buying board games, but something had me stop, and bend down to almost the bottom shelf, and reach into the back of that shelf to pick up a plain, yellow box. The game was called Relative Insanity – something about a game to play with your family. It was age 14+, older than my kids, so I almost set it back down, but I flipped it over to see the instructions out of curiosity.

    THERE! BAM! In the bottom corner of the box. Jeff Foxworthy’s face smiling up at me. He had created the game. The game included a quote from him, his picture and his signature right there on the back of the box. The one box I picked up out of 300 possible boxes I could have selected.

    I stopped dead in my tracks. Never before have I received such a clear and unquestionable sign. I was filled with an encouraging energy. Without a doubt, I now know my family and I are on the right track. The outcome hasn’t happened yet, but it’s going to. Everything is going to be ok. We will save our money and make it work to stay until it sells, we’ll keep our house on the market, and out of the blue an offer will come that will launch us to our next place as a family. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt so held, seen and guided by a force beyond my awareness. It was clear to me that the guidance was not “It’s about to happen!” but moreso that it will happen at exactly the right time. And I just need to get out of the way and let it happen.

    I hope my sharing makes a difference for someone out there…and that you see it, Gabby, and feel the appreciation I am sending your way for doing your incredible work. Shine your light!

    1. Amazing, Lara! Thank you for sharing this gorgeous reminder to stay open to receive guidance guidance from the universe. When we release our resistance, we clear space to welcome in the miracle. Congratulations. You, like all of us, are always being guided and supported. Much love to you and your family. xo

  18. I am just now getting into connecting with my guides like literally I started tonight and I’ve been looking at the clock almost every time when it is 9:11 pm I don’t really know what sign I should take this as being that I just started asking for signs. How should I ask for them to clarify what it means?

  19. Last night during meditation the sign I picked would be “Leave” because I want to know if I should leave my partner or not. I work in HR so I randomly see Annual Leave** paperwork sometimes and when it was almost time to leave work today, my boss gave me an Annual Leave document. I did not think of this before I chose my “leave” sign. Is this a sign or am I over complicating or simply need to pick a different sign?

    1. Hi Emma,

      You might want to consider how you felt when you received the sign. If you feel a sense of relief, excitement, joy, or something positive when you recognize your sign, then trust that it is for you!

      If you’re still not sure how to interpret the signs that you’re receiving, then Gabby suggests turning to your spiritual practice for clarity. Prayer is the medium for asking for guidance and meditation is medium for receiving guidance. Here is a meditation that you might like to try:


  20. I am still very in love with my ex. I asked for a sign that I shouldn’t give up on things. Then during my meditation, a moth landed in the middle of my forehead. That’s the first time something like that has ever happened. Do you think that this was a sign?

      1. I have a question about my sign. I chose a sign of two rabbits. This morning a friend sent me a picture out of the blue of 5 rabbits. Made me smile but now I wonder if that isn’t my sign because I asked for two and this has more. Or is the Universe going above and beyond and showing me I’m really, really in the right track? Thank you.

  21. Hi Gabby,

    I am a late bloomer that went back to school and got two law degrees: one at 40 the other at 44. Yesterday I meditated asking for clarity regarding what my career should look like. It seemed clear to me where I should be working and I cried hysterically because I already had a foot in but left because I felt I was being underused. I asked for a sign after the mediation – any sign I would recognize. I went to LinkedIn to check out opportunities and the first posting at the top was for this organization (it’s gov’t). The post was not for a job I would want or be qualified for, but it was for the place I feel I should be. I’m 50 now and afraid I’ll never work again. Was this a sign? TIA

  22. Dear Gabby
    My matter is very confidential and private, do you have a private email I can send my query to. Please I really need your guidance.

    1. Yes! It doesn’t matter how your sign appears to you (in real life, in dreams, on tv, via the internet, in words, etc)– what matters is how you feel when you receive your sign. If you feel a sense of relief, excitement, joy, or something positive when you recognize your sign, then trust that it is for you! xoxo

  23. Hey Gabby,

    During a confusing time in my life I feel like I asked for so many signs on so many things that now it just kind of blurs into one. For example 10:10, sunflowers, flamingos – so now I feel like I see them everywhere and its a bit much. Can I ask the universe to help me start over on my sign list? haha I would just like the signs to be more clear and very straightforward. Not one for this or that.

    Best, Steph

    1. Absolutely, Stephanie! You can start over with more specific intentions! When you ask for clarity, the universe will respond! xoxo
