Some Common Signs and Their Meanings
Signs and symbols are all around us. They represent the language of the subconscious (hello, Carl Jung). But frequently, they’re also a way for entities on the Other Side to speak with us.
When you have a question or an issue that you want guidance on, ask for a sign from your guides – then remain gently aware as you go through your day. Pay particular attention if you repeatedly see the same sign, or it pops up in a dream several times.
These signs may show up literally (like having a fender bender) — or as an image in an unusual place (like a pic of a baby in a store window). Trust that sense in the back of your brain that tells you there’s something different.
The following list are some of the more common ones I’ve run across. Got any favorites of your own? Add them in the comments section!
