You wake up and shuffle off to the bathroom to find a quarter lying on the sink. You wonder how it got there. You put it in your pocket and forget all about it until lunchtime.

You meet a business associate for lunch at the local café. As you sit and wait for him to get there, you notice something shiny under the table. It's another quarter. You begin to take notice. Is the Universe leaving you a sign? You decide to tell the Universe to leave you another quarter if it is a sign. So you wait for another sign through out the day but no more quarters. "Fine Universe. I guess you weren't calling."

You have forgotten that the quarters are in your favorite jeans. When you wash your jeans, the quarters fall out onto the floor and you stick them in your pocket and you don't think another thing about them until you are at the grocery store and you come up fifty cents short for your total bill and then you remember the two quarters in your pocket. You mumble, "Thanks Universe." It is all in how you look at this scenario as to what the Universe is trying to tell you.

You see, the Universe is always sending you signs and vibrations. All the time, and when you become aware and ask for signs, they come right to you. It is just that you have to leave 'how' the sign comes to you to the Universe just like when you are applying the Law of Attraction. When receiving a sign of encouragement or a sign to take action, you have to think about what a particular sign means to you. The above scenario about quarters means a lot to us. We see quarters as 'a big change' coming, whereas someone else may see quarters as 'small money' in their life, or maybe quarters remind them of a grandpa who gave them quarters every time he saw them.

Figuring out what the particular object or song means to you is part of the incredible process of seeing signs from the Universe. The Universe gave two quarters, two different signs, and you asked for another but you asked specifically for a particular vibration of an object. You see, leaving the 'how' the sign comes isn't up to you. This is limiting and we all know that the Law of Attraction with the Universe isn't limited unless you put limits on it. It would have been best to just ask for another sign of some sort instead of another quarter specifically because the Universe is always responding to your call in the way that it knows best for you.

So you didn't get another quarter but they fell out of your pocket to remind you "Here's the sign!" Then another reminder when you needed exactly two quarters for your groceries. The Universe keeps knocking but you have to answer the door! Once you 'get' what the sign is then the Universe doesn't have to continue with that particular vibration unless you want it to.

You may ask, "What do I need signs for? I just want the manifestation of what I want." Well, think about it. You have to align with the vibration of what you want. That is how the Universe will send back to you in vibration but if your vibration has chaotic or past thoughts connected within the want, then the Universe is sending back to you what you are emitting out and this can take time if there is a messed up jumble of vibrations on your behalf.
Ask for signs. Tell the Universe that you trust it with what you want and ask for a tap on the shoulder to let you know that it is still there. Even though you know the Universe is there, it's nice to have a tap on the shoulder. You know that your spouse loves you but isn't it nice to hear the words sometimes? That is like wanting a sign from the Universe. There are two different kinds of signs. There are inspirational signs and signs to act upon and both are just as important.

Inspirational signs are getting a tap on the shoulder from the Universe saying, "I am working on your want and I love you." Signs to act upon are when someone leaves a newspaper on the booth you are sitting at with something circled on it. You look at it and it is an answer or a possible path to what you want. The Universe is leaving you a sign to act upon.

Wake up each morning aware of signs and you will see them all through the day. It is up to you to interpret what it is that you are seeing and feeling. Signs will help lead the way to the life that it is that you want through the Universe and the Law of Attraction.
