How To Ask For A Sign From The Universe (Manifestation)

This is a blog post about how to ask the universe for signs. You can ask for signs about your manifestations coming true, signs about whether you’re on the right path in life, receive answers to “yes or no” questions, and for specific advice on the choices you make.

The truth is, the universe is always willing to help you on your path — you just have to know how to ask for help and be willing to listen!

So, read on for detailed instructions about how to ask the universe for a sign.

1- Prepare to receive signs from the universe

Are you really ready to receive signs from the universe?

Most people would say “yes”, but their actions suggest otherwise.

You see, we’re all born with unique gifts that enable us to communicate with the divine.

But, we also have challenges and limitations that can block those messages too!

There’s only one way to uncover your personal truth about your challenges and gifts — and that’s by getting your free numerology reading.

Why is your numerology reading so effective?

Glad you asked!

Your numerology chart is a map that identifies the hidden energies hidden within your soul, and swirling around you at the exact date and time of your birth.

It provides a way for you to make sense of everything that’s happened in your life up until now.

It reveals why some things just “happen” to so easily fall in place for you, while you may struggle with other things that seem so simple for others.

Furthermore, once you have this information at your disposal, you will know your spiritual gifts (like spiritual communication styles, and your limitations (things to avoid wasting time on!)

By now you can probably see why this information is so critical to your success, can you not?

2- Get clear on what you’re asking

An often-overlooked mistake people make is not being clear enough on what they’re asking.

You’ll want to make sure you have a definite request.

And just one request.

Remember, the universe always rewards clarity.

Yes or no questions are great for this.

For the sake of this tutorial, we’ll use a hypothetical example of someone wanting to manifest a new job.

So, we can say this person wants to know if they will manifest a new job within the next three months.


3- Picking your signs

Next, you must choose how you’ll receive messages from the universe.

You can either choose signs yourself or set the intention that you will allow the universe to speak to you as it sees fit.

If you choose the first option, you can sit still for a moment, tap into your intuition, and pick whatever item comes to mind.

Then put a unique spin on it so that you’ll know it’s a sign meant for that specific purpose.

I like to ask for something small, like a pink butterfly, for example, to appear if the answer is yes.

If the answer is no, I’ll ask for something totally different but completely unique as well.

Like a green snail.

You want to make sure you take notes on your specific signs and symbols, and review them frequently so they’re always in the back of your mind.

Or else you might forget!

This works best for a quick “yes” or “no” answer, but isn’t that great if you want more fluid, deeper advice.


4- Setting an intention for the universe to send signs

If you don’t want to pick definite signs yourself or you need more than just a “yes” or “no” answer, then you’ll want to set the intention that the universe sends you signs as it sees fit.

For this, you can simply ask the universe to reveal what you need to know through clear, quality signs that you won’t miss.

Literally, just say that aloud, and intend to be receptive.

(This is where your numerology reading really comes in handy, by the way… it’ll help you gain so much more clarity with communication!)

There are so many common signs from the universe.

Among others, you’ll most often see angel numbers, dreams, coincidences, animal totems, and feathers.


5- How to know you’ve received your sign

For the most part, once you ask the universe for either a specific sign or an open sign and set the intention to receive, if your communication signals are all clear it will be extremely obvious that it’s a sign.

Keep in mind, what seems obvious to you may seem utterly pointless to someone else, and vice versa.

But also you need to know that when it comes to divine guidance, everything counts.

It’s so easy to miss signs because you put qualifiers on them.

If you ask for a pink feather and you see one on a billboard or in a TV commercial, that counts just as much as a real pink feather on the ground would.

Remember, pay attention — and everything counts!


6- What to do when you receive your sign

When you receive your sign, make sure you take note of when and where it was.

You won’t always have the time to analyze it or make sense of it right away (especially if it’s not a “yes or no” query.)

You’ll want to make sure you keep track of everything for later.

Once you get some time, you may need to look up the meanings of different symbols — particularly with angel numbers, animal totems, dream meanings, and feathers.

But it’s so easy to take a few minutes to see what it means, think of how you can apply it to your life or your situation, and then express gratitude for the information.


7- What to do with an unclear sign

When your intuitive message is unclear, it’s okay to ask for clarity.

For example, what happens a lot especially with angel numbers is you’ll see the number here and there but not enough to intuitively feel it’s a sign.

In this case, you’ll want to give it a little bit more time, ask for the number to appear a bit more frequently if it is a sign, then once you feel more secure you can accept the message.

The only warning is that you don’t want to keep asking for signs over and over again.

There’s a limit to receiving spiritual signs and continuing to ask.

Imagine somebody asking you for something over and over, and after you give it to them, they never accept your offer.

How would you feel?

What would you do?

If you do this, nothing dangerous will happen, but particularly if you’re working with manifestation and you keep asking for signs, what you’ll wind up doing is spending so much time focusing on the signs that you’ll manifest more signs!

You’ll never actually get the thing you’re manifesting because your heart’s true desire is with manifesting signs!

Don’t be that girl.

All signs, no substance?

Not cool.


8- What does it mean if I never receive my sign?

If you never receive a divine sign, make sure you’ve first given it enough time to show.

But if it’s been an excessively long time and you hear nothing, that’s a sign too!

That means that you’ll have to go through the gradual process of learning for yourself.

Sometimes you simply won’t hear anything back no matter what you try.

Try to resist the urge to think this is a negative answer because it’s not.

It just means you’ll have to wait and see.

You could avoid taking action at the present time if it’s reasonable to do so.

Then, ask for more signs and clarity in the near future and see what result you get then.

Sometimes things work out that way when the universe just wants you to take a pause or a break and come back later.

But it’s your life and your call!


Final thoughts on how to ask for a sign

The universe is always willing to help you on your path — you just have to know how to ask for help and be willing to listen!

If all of this sounds intimidating and you want help enacting these principles, make sure you get your free numerology reading.

It’ll help you get started on the right track.

Good luck, and happy manifesting!
