Years ago at my local Unity, I took an excellent workshop
about asking for divine omens called "Signs and Wonders." Our
workshop leader, Unity Minister and ball of fire, Edwene Gaines, advised us to request
very specific signs within very
For example, instead of saying, "If taking a trip to
France next month is in alignment for me, show me a sign," you need to
say, "If taking a trip to France next month is in alignment for me, then
let me see 3 French flags while I'm out doing my errands today."
When you just ask for "a sign" you may not know it when you see it, or, you may wonder if the sign you think you got was really a sign at all! If you saw those 3 French flags while you were out on errands that day, you would know, without doubt, you got a "yes" answer. (Of course, if you made an effort to drive by the French Embassy on your rounds, all bets are off! That would be ego-directed, rather than Spirit-directed.)
If however, instead of being specific, you just asked for a sign--any ol' sign--and a friend
invited you to go to a French restaurant that night, you might wonder if that
was truly a sign or just a "coincidence." Being specific and setting a time-frame is crucial.
Sometimes we hesitate to ask for--or make demands of--the Universe to be specific because it stretches our capacity to believe in that kind of "magic"--to believe that we can, indeed, have what we desire, including clear communication from Spirit. If we don't ask for something specific, then, we reason (maybe just at an unconscious level), we can't be disappointed if it doesn't show up. Oh, we of little faith!
Being non-specific also allows you to empower something you think could be
a sign and decide it is one if your ego is invested in it being so--kind of
like hedging your bets. That brings up the age-old dilemma of trying to figure
out which communication is of Spirit, and which is of ego. But if you ask Spirit for a sign and make it specific and unquestionable, you will be able to be sure who presented it to you.
Asking for a sign and being firm about the form it takes is absolutely within our rights as creators and if you have unwavering faith, you'll be amazed at the way the Universe will arrange itself to present you with the answers you seek. Don't underestimate your Spirit's ability to give you exactly what you ask for! And to trust that if you don't get it, there is something even more desirable on the way--maybe just better timing for that trip, or maybe something else altogether.
I'm going to insert a disclaimer here. It's really only the doubtful ego that would feel the need to ask for a sign. When you're aligned with your Spirit, you know, without doubt, that your heart's desires are on their way in perfect Divine Timing and you don't need the reassurance of a sign. But since we're all subject to ego's doubts and fears, it's nice to know we can request--and get--a sign that things are all lined up for our heart's desires to be delivered.
Long ago, I asked the Universe for a sign that I would actually be getting something I thought was impossible and it was very creative in responding. If you have never read my story of the "red diamond," check out this oldie but goody: The Red Diamond

Years ago, I had an email exchange with a guy named Noah St. John. I don't even remember why we were in touch, but he had an idea he was starting to put out to the world. At the time, I thought it was pretty cool, but didn't follow up on it--knew I'd do it later, when the time was right. Well, today, however many years later, the time was right!
Before I tell you the rest, check out this video of him on YouTube, talking about his idea, "afformations":
For some reason, my high vibrational state today had me suddenly, spontaneously, coming up with afformations! I looked up the video only after I'd written a whole bunch of them--Easy World just stimulated my memory of them and inspired me and energized me to come up with the ones that I needed.
One of the ones I think you'll like, too, is "Why is money flowing so freely for us now?" Rick loved that one, too, and we've been asking each other that (and several other ones) with lots of feeling in our voices. Fun!
Afform away! It's soooooooooooo Easy World!!!
