A Reader Talks Signs

So many times, and I mean MANY times (lol), I call one of my favorite readers (who shall remain nameless because we all have our favorites, and you are ALL very gifted, very much admired and loved) because I go into what I like to call worry mode…”Well, you said two weeks, and it’s been two weeks, and I’m feeling doubtful…and what if…and how come…yadda, yadda, yadda.” Lots of times, I call because I find it very comforting to hear his or her voice, and to receive the calming advice that is always given. What the psychics give me is hope.

It is our human nature to want to catch a glimpse of what is to come. We call our psychics. We look for signs, whether they’re in the form of feathers, coins, clouds…a song on the radio or a name on a license plate. It’s almost as if the psychics are couriers, and their messages from Spirit are just a different form of the signs that we receive…the answers to our questions. (Why do I keep envisioning that little cartoon bird wearing the leather flying ace hat and goggles?!)

The problem is, when we RECEIVE the answer, whether it’s from our beloved readers or from Heaven above, we always seem to QUESTION that very answer we’ve been looking for. We can’t do this to ourselves anymore.

I was on a website recently, and I read something about signs written by Danae Sinclair. I think it would be beneficial to all of us to not only read the following excerpt, but to really ABSORB what the author is saying. It put a lot of things into perspective for me, and helped me realize that the more I fret about whatever it is I’m looking forward to, the more I push it away. I have learned to trust the signs I receive and not to question if they’re “really a sign.” Whether these signs are from my psychic or from the angels above, they are a gift, and I feel blessed for having received such a gift. We should never look a gift horse in the mouth. I hope this will help you, too…

“But then comes the temptation to interpret – to consult a text or call a friend – to replace the direction, the resonance, the “ah-ha!” moment with tangibility and credibility – “does this mean…?”, “oh, yes it means this and that”. There’s the urge to take that received knowledge and examine it from every angle, poking and prodding and squeezing every last drop of what it’s made of out of it. This is where we read too much into things. We get our answers and then want to question them.

And it’s this very mistrust of what’s given to us in its own form that destroys the divine part of divination. We apply the scarcity mind-set that proclaims “Not Enough” and disconnects us from the benevolent source – the larger intelligence – that is soul.

So the challenge is not how to read omens and signs but to contain them. In other words, to stick with the original message rather than allow the mind’s tricky ways to unravel it and remake it into something else. It’s as simple as this. Trust that if you ask, the answer is on its way. Notice what life is showing you because soul makes intelligent, meaningful statements all the time.

Stop interrogating the answers and, above all, sit for just a moment with what you’ve received and recognize the magic. Trust it, its part of who you are now.” – Danae Sinclair

    Hi Fran,
    That’s what I feel…well, Sam is a 74 lb mutt that we rescued…not sure what he is and neither is the vet…he is so sweet, brindle colored, and always walks around with his “baby” a stuffed animal in his mouth. IF you come to the house, the first thing he will do his show you his “baby. Tally, was rescued as well, his Mom ws preganat and “thrown away in a dumpster”…AWFUL…the humane society operated on her to try to save her life and found all pups dead except him…his name is Tally-looks like a 42 lb black bear…half chow half shelty. So smart and sweet and protective of me. AND, the little guy is “Charlie” a 14 lb pek a pom with a snaggle tooth and a half in half out nose (cause he’s half pomeranian and half pekignese) so the nose “compromised” betweem “squished” and “pointy” and he has the cutest little “snaggletooth”…LOVE THEM ALL LIKE CHILDREN!
    How is Maddie? Any updates?
    Love to you & Maddie!

    Good Morning Fran,
    Sounds like Maddie picked up on what you needed and did a command performance. 🙂
    My Dad had an expression about doctors. “Just remember, a quarter of them that are practicing, graduated at the bottom of the list”. Really put it into perspective for me!
    OK! You’re on! I’ll put the kittens on an Amtrak in a “sleeper”, so they can take cat naps, and send them out to you. No adoption fee necessary! Deal? I’ll start packing…

    Hi Lise,
    I hope this doesn’t come across in the wrong way…BUT I think that would frighten me. Does it you?

    Hi Fran,
    Last year I did the same thing. When I lost contact with “my guy” last year it was for four months and during those months I called CP all the time asking when will I see him and hear from him again. They will say in two months then three months, but by talking to them gave me hope and somehow I still felt close to him thru the psychics, because they would tell me what he’s feeling and thinking and what he’s doing. This was all new to me at that time, but it made me feel better.
    Now I do have contact with him, but what I’m waiting for is for him to start asking me out on dates and come back to ME. All my favorite psychics have said that we will get back together again and I do get time lines and they’re getting close and I used to stare at the calendar ALL the time. But because my Job issues my main focus has moved from him to my Job and also this blog has helped me. I haven’t checked the calendar THAT often any more…hehe.
    I’m learning to just let it be!!!!!
    Thanks Fran for your words!

    Lovely Duckling,
    I absolutely loved the story you shared about your communication with your guide Marie. How cool that you asked for signs from her and received so many of them! To top it off…you received a face with the name, I love that! I am inspired to purchase the book you mentioned and try it myself.
    Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hi ST,
    What breed are your other two dogs?
    I believe that animals DO have souls…how could they not? They have so much love and a real understanding in their eyes. And isn’t it true that the eyes are the windows to the soul?
    Thank you for your prayers.
    Love you too,

  7. Fran

    Dear Lorna,
    Yes, I did take her back because you suggested I get a second opinion. So for that, I offer you a million THANKS!!
    It’s an odd blessing…when I brought her in, the doctor kept asking what her seizures were like. I kept explaining, but she was still “confused.” So when I brought Maddie in for all of her tests, she was so upset that she had a seizure right there in the front room of the vet’s office! I yelled for someone to come…they all came rushing over, even the doctor. So she got to actually witness Maddie in action.
    She’s so cute. She’s very scruffy and unkepmpt, no matter HOW much we try to brush her. We also have a 1 yr. old chihuaha named Bella. She’s a terror! (But we love her, too!). Oh, and a bunny rabbit as well. Now they’ve asked for birds. HELP!
    I LOVE kittens and cats. I envy you being around all those kitties. I wish I lived closer to you…I’d love to help out.
    Thank you for placing Maddie on your Animal Prayer List.
    Hugs, Fran

    Thanks, Fran!!!
    I am truly grateful for Marie. From the moment that I first connected with her, she has amazed me. She gave me a face and a name almost immediately. The name came first and I was momentarily uneasy because it was Murray, a man’s name. She sensed that and told me ‘then call me Marie.’ I really felt badly because it shouldn’t matter (since a guide has no gender), but she did what made me the most comfortable. And then she showed me a face, which I now focus on whenever I want to connect with her. Another guide has given me a face, and to me they look like a negative of a photograph.
    When I was first trying to find out who my guide was, Josepha told me to read Opening to Channel. It has been a very helpful tool. It’s handy to have when I can’t call someone at CP! 😉
    I was told by one reader that Marie has been with me since I was a child. I have a few more around me, but they are loving spirits of departed family. I have my stepmom and my sweet little dog (who were buddies when they were both still here, so the are together a lot!), and two others who were my children in a past life.
    I have had a few other encounters with spirits, as well.
    I live on the spot where my husband’s grandparents lived about 50 years ago. My husband’s father and his siblings grew up in a house that is no longer there, but the house we live in is pretty much on the same spot.
    My father-in-law’s little sister drowned in the creek behind the house when she was three years old. (My daughter was born on her birthday and looks very much like her, too.) There have been times that I could feel her there. I would get this overwhelming sense of sadness edged with fear, like a little girl who was lost. I never tried to connect with her, but I did have sort of contact with her a couple of times.
    Once I woke up because it felt like someone was staring at me (you know, like when the kid/cat/dog wants you to wake up and feed them). I sensed that she was in the room because I could feel that sadness. I said out loud, ‘if you are scared, you can sleep with us.’ Instantly, the sad feeling went away.
    Another time, I had a dream that my daughter was trying to introduce me to her ‘new friend’ (by the same name as the little girl), and this little voice that sounded like it was coming from the wall kept saying ‘Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi!’
    There is also another spirit that has done her best to interrupt my attempts at channeling. I first noticed her presence just after I started connecting with Marie. It’s like this other one figured out I could open up that connection, so she started to try to come into it. The first thing she told me was that I could not trust Marie, which felt so completely wrong that I immediately broke the connection. I was a little confused about who to trust, but after thinking about the introduction to each, I knew that Marie was truly the one I could trust.
    I once woke up with the feeling that someone much taller was staring at me (like the husband who wakes you up and wants to be fed), and I got a really angry feeling from it (although I never felt in danger).
    I was told by someone I read with that it is the spirit of a woman who had been connected to my husband in the past and she is a little jealous of me–which she shouldn’t be. I told the reader to pass along the message that she can have him back because things aren’t going too well with him and me. I guess that got a smile. LOL!
    I have felt since I was younger like I had abilities. A few readers have said that they see that in me, as well. I don’t know yet how to really use my gifts. I have so little control over them, but that’s why I am trying to learn as much as I can. Many of my calls to CP have been to ask for guidance on using them.
    Off on a tangent from signs, but I am a random kind of girl… 😉
    Thanks, Fran!!!
    Lise 🙂

    Hi Fran!
    Did they find Maddie’s heart problem after I told you to get a 2nd opinion? I think with seizures they wait because it could just be a one time thing.
    I had a cat the vet wanted to put down, said she had lymph node cancer. Went to a vet 20 minutes over who told me she had a food allergy. My Sadie, she’s staring at me right now, knows I’m talking about her! She’s on a special diet now and still ALIVE. I believe in 2nd opinions!
    It’s kitten season! Right now only my husband can count on hearing from me. The “babies” are alot of work but OH are they cute. I can collapse in October which is my favorite month. I love fall.
    Maddie is your Baby, you don’t have to justify the time and money spent on her. She knows how much you love her and that you are trying to help her.
    My Animal Prayer List is already pretty long and yes, Maddie is on it. ^j^

  10. Sea Turtle

    I know what you mean…”my boys” are my family too. It’s so amazing how much we are able to love these creatures and they to love us…
    I sure HOPE they are in heaven with us someday…the thought of never seeing them again is heart breaking. The Pastor of my church said they don’t have souls and will not be…I find that hard to believe and I hope he is wrong.
    As I write this my little guy pek-a-pom is sitting on my lap, my other two are lying on the floor beside me and I think we ALL feel such love & contentment.
    I hope that your Maddie gets well again…
    I’m sorry you’re going through such frustration…and worry.
    I’m saying a prayer as I write this that the problem will be revealed.
    Love ya,

  11. Fran

    Oh, Lise!!! That is the most wonderful thing!! Your Marie is most definitely very special, and boy, she sure wants you to know that she’s got your back!!! (My sister’s name is Marie Antoinette!)
    Jacqueline helped me to learn about one of my guides, although his name was difficult to pronounce. I would love to find out the names of my other guides. I’ll have to meditate a little more and see what comes to me.
    Now YOU’VE inspired ME to ask for more signs!

  12. Fran

    Hi! I’m glad that they caught the problem with Maddie’s heart (which we had no idea about), but it’s a little frustrating that they were still hemming and hawing about the seizures. As soon as we get a little extra cash, I’ll be taking her in for the next round of tests. (They want to rule out Cushing’s Disease).
    It’s amazing how much love you can have for your pets. She’s so much more than a pet, though…she’s family.
    Glad to hear from you!!
    Hugs, Fran

  13. LORNA ex. 9580

    Hi Fran!
    Just like people, she is getting up there in age and starting to have issues. So glad to hear she is stable.
    $900.00…OUCH! Makes one wonder about pet insurance….

  14. The Lovely Duckling

    Hi, Fran!
    So I decided to ask for a little sign from my guide, Marie…she gave me FOUR very clear signs. I asked her to show me that she is with me, and this is how she answered:
    I was going to visit someone on the way home so I went a different way than I usually do. I asked my guide for a sign that she is with me, and a few miles later I passed a sign that said “At your service everyday” in ENORMOUS letters (a sign that was definitely NOT there last week when I visited the same person). It’s supposed to mark the county line, but the county emblem is so small that it would be easily missed. But the message was not…it was loud and clear!
    There were several properties for sale along the route I was taking. Almost all of them were listed by the same agent…a woman named Mary. HELLO!
    I asked her to give me something very specific just so that I wouldn’t miss it…let another particular friend be visiting the person I was going to see. Guess who showed up just after I did.
    After I left my friend’s house, I stopped at a gas station to get something to drink. While I was there, I used the restroom. On the restroom wall was a large picture of a French patisserie called “Antoinette”. There is no possible way to have missed that.
    All I can say is…um, WOW! Guess I should have tried that sooner! 😉
    Thanks again for the article!!! You have inspired me to ask for more signs!

    In May, I took the girls and two of their friends to see Taylor Swift. My son is old enough now (19) to go on his own, but I did get tickets to take all of them to see The Lion King this October. At first, I didn’t get my son a ticket, because he’s always telling me that he doesn’t like to go to plays. Then when he found out that I’d gotten tickets to this show, he wanted to know why I didn’t get him one because it had always been his favorite movie. I went back online and luckily I found a ticket and he’s sitting with us! Go figure…

  16. Fran

    I must be a very typical Libra. I LOVE everything to do with love, food and music (and not necessarily in that order!).
    One time, my friends and I were driving back home from a weekend in the Poconos (my friend’s brother had a house there, and she was always inviting us up). I drove my friend NUTS because I sang EVERY single song that came on the radio. She turned to me and asked, “Isn’t there ONE song you don’t know??”
    I’m still the same way. Only now I drive my KIDS nuts in the car!! Ahhh…the joys of motherhood!
    Hugs back at you,

    Hi Lorna ~
    I just wanted to update you on my dog Maddie. I took her back to the vet, and after a bazillion tests and ultrasounds (and a seizure in the office when I dropped her off!!), all they could tell me is that she has a slight “heart condition” and put her on medication for that. They want to do “more tests” regarding the seizures, but I have to wait. I’ve already spent over $900, and right now I just can’t afford any more tests. We’re keeping an eye on her, and keeping her happy, and she’s loving all the attention. And so far, so good…no more seizures.
    Keep her in your prayers.
    ~Fran ~^.^~

    You know what you can use those pineapples for, don’t you girlfriend??? YUM! (Just use fat-free icecream…)

  19. Miss Krystal ext. 9192

    I figured you were a three dog girl-lol
    Actually, a few years later, my favorite of all time, with those adorable little children, singing in the background, “The ink is black, the page is white, together we learn to read and write. A child is black, a child is white, together we grow to see the light….to see the light…..And now a child can understand, that this is the law of all of land…The world is black the world is white”–Best song they ever did in my book…But I read that their biggest selling hit, on 45, was actually, “Never been to spain.”
    One more, that is incred, was, “just an old fashioned love song.” But those three are from the 70’s….
    Switching gears…How about “Inagada Davida, don’t you know that I love you. ”
    Or….. here’s a libra song…”what goes up, must come down, spinning wheels..” LOL
    I will stop….
    I have a good friend, who is a libra, I think all we ever talk about is love, food and music.”
    Miss Krystal
    Cheers to the summer of love

    RUN! The cake will call your name. Ignore it. I hear voices too…
    I just lost ten pounds. My daughter put me on a diet that is six small meals a day, NO SUGAR, SUPER LOW CARBS. It’s working!
    The older you get the harder it gets!
    Maybe I should just eat IAMS.

  21. Fran

    Dear Jacqueline,
    I’m so glad you enjoyed this. I had fun writing it.
    I believe with my whole heart that everything DOES happen for a reason. I think my life is living proof!! LOL!! Now I’m looking forward to the NEXT thing that’s gonna happen. :^)

  22. Fran

    Paige, you are a blessing! You have such a sweetness and gentleness about you, and I love it. Thanks for everything!

  23. Fran

    Hi Joyce ~
    Thank you so much. Your opinion means a lot to me. It’s so true…this Universe can really be a hard thing to figure out sometimes.
    It’s almost like we’re on a rollercoaster ride. If we ride the Doubt Coaster, it’s just going to build momentum as it roars down the track. But…if we ride the Confidence Coaster, there’s no limit to what we can create. Yes?

  24. Fran

    Hello Panda ~
    This is just so awesome. I hope we can all become more aware of the signs (and the blessings) that are showered upon us, whether we’re consciously asking or not.

  25. Fran

    OMG Stacey!! That is so incredible!! Of all places to find a brick. You have to think…what made your son bring it to you? He could have just thrown it into the water. If that’s not a sign, I don’t know what is. I love this. I love reading about all the signs that we’ve been receiving. I’ve learned to just smile and say, “Thank You” every time a new sign shows up.

  26. Fran

    You are so sweet. And you brought back some incredible memories with that song!! Three Dog Night! When I was very young, around 7-8, I had a portable record player that played 45’s. Whenever I would play “Joy to the World,” ALL the kids on the block would come onto my front stoop with me to listen to that song. We loved it.
    Thanks for the memories…

  27. Fran

    Hi Leelee (love your name!) ~
    Trust that it was indeed a sign!! As Gina Rose always reminds me, there are NO coincidences!! Good for you!!!

    Dear Fran,
    I loved your article so much. It’s wonderful when an “ah ha” moment arrives. Years ago my guides explained to me that its not that we necessarily mess up our intentions. But, its more that we just don’t understand the truth about the way the universe works.
    Once we learn that we create what we believe…and realize that our doubts are beliefs too, we begin to understand how we keep recreating those doubts over and over in our life.
    Big congratulations Fran, on being as Gina Rose said “cookin now” !!!

    My mom just gave me a chocolate cake last night because I was not with her on my bday last week…And I had just started my new diet hours before lol

    You got your balance going on!
    I feel ya….Remember what I told you last time we spoke….Looks like you are in the groove! Remember the date I gave you??? I think I am good at this love thing, I mean come on, I was only born in the summer of love, the summer of 69-I have braggin rights on this one…Hey we have a 40 year celebration going on right now from that famous summer…Woodstock etc. Ya know? Some of the greatest music ever made that year-Joy to the world, all the boys and girls, joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea, Joy to you and me!

    Hi Lise!
    I think that if you start asking, you’ll be amazed at how many signs you will receive. Just be open to anything…when you get one, you’ll just know.

  34. Stacey

    Got one the other day. I read a quote, “Sometimes life hits you like a brick in the head. Keep your faith.” Going through some tough times, so I remembered the quote. So then, the next day my son finds a brick at the beach (at the beach!) and brings it to me. Odd, this brick didn’t have the usual three big holes. It was solid. Hmmmm…Yeah, I got that one loud and clear. The brick sits on my dining room table right now to keep me focused.

  35. Leelee

    Hi Celeste! I think I have another sign for you. I was just talking to someone (actually a friend of the person I am supposed to reconnect with) and I was telling him about Rincon and how its a famous surf spot and how much I love it! This was just on Friday. Just kinda weird and I immediately thought of it when I saw your post. I hope me seeing your post on Rincon and letting you know I was just talking about it gives you some extra assurance! What are the chances really??

  36. Celeste

    That indeed is a cool sign! I, too, don’t usually pay attention to license plates. Guess that’s why he cut in front of my so abruptly- to get my attention! LOL
    I’ve had many signs like this happen all my life, growing up I just assumed everyone experienced it (and I still believe it, but many people don’t pay attention). Always trust these signs are for your highest good… =)

  37. The Lovely Duckling

    Hi, Fran!
    Thanks for sharing that little bit of wisdom with us.
    I guess I should be asking for signs a little more often! It’s something that usually never occurs to me to ask for when I looking for guidance.
    But, then again, I could be missing them completely since I tend to look inward more often than not.
    Lise 🙂

  38. Fran

    Hi Celeste ~
    WOW!! I had goosebumps on my arms as I read your story. Amazing!! One time, I was asking Archangel Chamuel for a sign. I was driving with my son, and he pointed out a car to me that he thought was cool. When I looked up, my eyes went straight for the license plate (at that point, I hardly ever looked at license plates). The plate on that car read, “CHAM I AM.” Cool, huh?

  39. Celeste

    I had a terrific sign yesterday from my guides. I was contemplating a relationship and its direction and asked my guides to send me a sign- I asked for something relating to Rincon, Puerto Rico- as confirmation that we were headed in the right direction. I then released it and drove to an arts festival 2 hrs away in Malibu. On my way back, there was a lot of traffic and an SUV cut in front of me-with you guessed it- a Puerto Rico license plate. The driver got out of his car to close his gas cap and I asked him what part of PR was he from- Rincon!
    WOW…I just sat there with a huge smile and plenty of thank you’s. No need to question that, just enjoy.

  40. Fran

    Hi Gina Rose~
    Now if I can just trust that these pounds will go away and never return…LOL!!!
    (I guess it would help if I lay off the cake, huh?)

  41. Fran

    Hi Paige,
    I’ve called you so many times with questions…”Is this a sign? Is that a sign?” Thanks for always being so patient and kind, and most of all, understanding. Now I understand, and trust, too.

  42. paige

    Hi Fran,
    Yes, we certainly do have to be careful not to overthink signs. Our first impression of it is usually the right message.
