This happens all the time. We all want nothing more than to be told we are making the right choice, and that we won't fail. We are terrified to take risks. Why? Because our Critter Brain (brain stem, ego) doesn't like to feel unsafe. It doesn't understand that without taking any risks, our lives get pretty stale. But what I want to talk about here are these SIGNS we demand to show up to make it clear to us that we have a green light.
What we really don't get is that we receive signs all the time! Literally. No matter what we are choosing, we receive signs about whether the thing in question would be good for us or not. In fact, everything you see, smell, read, and listen to is a sign. Signs are everywhere. I'm talking about those magical moments when you are in question of something, like... should I quit this job... and your boss walks past reprimanding one of your co-workers. Yeah, that's a sign. That sign made you feel rotten and was a HELL YES! The problem is... you simply don't pay attention to them.
So, when you really want a sign, what do you do? You beg for one and draw conclusions about how it can show up. Do you know what that sounds like? "Universe/God, give me a sign that if I do this, I will make massive amounts of money. That I will be successful. That I won't be a failure. And make this sign so clear that I can't miss it... like on a huge billboard with my name on it somewhere."
HERE IS WHAT YOU ARE REALLY SAYING:
"I'm pretty familiar with failing, and I really don't resonate with massive amounts of money. I want this sign to be so big and obscure because I really know deep down inside that it probably won't show up."
So, when nothing shows up, guess what? You got what you expected.
WHAT IF YOU EXPECTED TO SEE SIGNS EVERYWHERE? I mean really, what if everything was a sign. That means...
