The meanings of signs and intuitions aren’t always obvious;
take the time to explore deeper and they can be uncovered…
Have you ever put a question out into the universal energy field and then watched and waited for signs or intuitions to appear, bringing you the answer?

If you have, you’ve probably noticed that signs sometimes turn up in the strangest ways, or through the most unusual series of synchronicities. A website error (on a site I use, but not my own) somehow caused a couple of paragraphs of text to be inserted into my own writings. When I visited the website, the ‘foreign’ text naturally caught my attention, so I read it…
The writing was strangely compelling, but the meaning not immediately clear. This is often the case with signs – you notice them, your attention is drawn to them and you ‘know’ they are significant. The challenge, however, is to interpret the signs correctly, as the meaning may not be the ‘obvious’ one that comes first to mind…

This issue has come up several times recently, when I have been working 1 to 1 with clients in soul coaching and mentoring sessions. So much so, that it may be a sign (another way they appear, the frequency gradually drawing attention and the meaning becoming more evident), that this will also be useful to some of you:
The way it appeared for my recent clients, was that they took a Sign to mean that they should pursue that course of enquiry or action. When we explored further, checking this with the client’s character, values, ethics and intended path or direction in life, we found something quite different:
The ‘sign’ or opportunity was not answering their positive question or intention – instead it was answering the craving of their fears.
So, for example, suppose you want to follow some lovely, creative, healing path and you ask for signs, help and guidance for which way to go. This is your aspiration and dream. At the same time, you are concerned because you need to earn money to pay the bills. So now a job opportunity comes up, in your old line of work, or doing something that does not suit you, but it would pay the bills; maybe it would even pay well.
How do you read the sign? What do you decide to do?

It is often easy to jump to an ‘obvious’ conclusion, such as: this sign means I should do or pursue this thing. In this case, maybe this job has arisen to provide me with financial security, or to let me save up and follow my path again later on. But think a moment. Sometimes signs appear as a reminder of where NOT to go, i.e. they test your resolve. So the apparent job opportunity may be something you should turn down if it takes you off course – even though your financial insecurities mean that you feel you ‘should’ take it.
Each case is different; there is no one solution for everyone and this is why 1 to 1 soul coaching and mentoring is often so helpful. You get help and support to stop you wasting any precious time and energy down false trails and long-winded detours, and to make sure that you stay on track on the beautiful golden path of your dreams. We are only here, in this life for a brief instant, after all.

I put thoughts, intentions and questions out into the universal energy field all the time as a matter of course, since (for me, with practice) it is such a reliable way of gaining insights, information and often practical help.
Even so, I take these recent experiences as reminders for myself, to keep practicing and fine tuning, to look deeper and to make sure I have understood the deeper meanings.
This practice definitely encourages creativity and lateral thinking and strengthens the inner sense of intuitive knowing. Furthermore, it can become a way of being in constant flow of communication and interaction with the natural world around you.
And this brings me to the most essential part of this message: when you ask and receive, do remember to say ‘thank you’.
