Signs and Messages in Clouds

Messages in Clouds

Remember when you were a kid and you used to watch those big fluffy white clouds? Sometime you could see shapes in them. Some of them look like animals, others like people. What if Spirit is trying to get a message to you in the clouds? If you are looking for a sign, you may want to look up to the clouds!

You can get messages in many different ways. There are internal methods – like when you meditate and something pops in your head, or when you have a gut feeling. There are external tools – like tarot cards, runes, or clock numbers (11:11, 2:22, etc.). And messages can also come to you in other ways, such as messages in clouds!

Another type of external message is called an environmental message or sign. This is where something is seen in the environment around you. For example, I have an abstract painting in my office. Sometimes when I am doing reiki energy healing for a client I gaze at the painting and I see angels, birds, or other images. It’s kind of like the old ink blot tests they used to do in psychology.

I remember taking a workshop in the States a few years back. I was carpooling with some other students. I was gazing out the back window looking for messages in clouds.

All the way back, I clearly saw angels in the clouds. It was as if they were going to accompany me home. In fact, I got the message that I didn’t need to worry – they would make sure I got right to my door.

Unfortunately, I didn’t listen. They told me that a bus would come. Although it was a short walk, I was exhausted after the time away and I didn’t trust that a bus would come without a long wait. Of course, once I started to walk, the bus came right away and drove right by me! It’s not always easy to believe the messages in clouds, as it feels rather unusual. But sometimes, the clouds indeed have a message for us!

Sometimes people see what message they need to see in the clouds and then the clouds change. Once I was in Sedona with a trail guide. We were walking through the mountains and the guide was telling us about a particular tribe.

We felt that there had once been a camp behind us. When we looked up at the sky, one of the clouds formed in a perfect arrow. It was pointing in the same direction as where we felt the camp had been. A few seconds later it was gone.

One of my friends told me that she was out in the backyard looking up at the clouds when they formed initials. A name popped into her head of who it might be. Later that day, she received an email out of the blue from that person!

Clouds can be a great source of signs and messages. Next time you need some guidance, put out your request to the universe, and then look up! You might see your answers in the form of a message in clouds.

    I had a very intese and somewhat intimidating message in the clouds during a bus ride on my school field trip today. First it appeared like my first name, as well as the name of the girl I like. Then it appeared as a gigantic demon battling with a large hand holding a bell. (God?) The middle of the demon, the heart, was in the shape of a skull. The were these weird worm like creatures coming out of the demon’s body. Then I saw a man and woman together, and just after it an intense heavy rain that lasted only a few seconds hit over me. Proceeding the rain, I saw a sleeping baby surrounded by big bird shaped clouds. Is this my future? Me and that girl, heavy struggles, and a baby? I do have precognitive dreams… It’s so much to take in, and I’m struggling to manage it.

    Hi Philip,

    When you see messages, it’s important to keep your mind and emotions clear so that you don’t interpret it in a way where the message is biased. If there is any fear or you have particular beliefs that are strong, it might affect the way you perceive the meaning of the message.

    Sometimes it’s hard to be detached about our intuitive work – especially when it’s about ourselves! It’s not always possible.

    Take the cloud message as what might be for the moment, and be open to receiving other messages as confirmation or maybe to clarify in case you are skewing the interpretation.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Take care,

    I get Messages all time from the clouds. I often see love ones name in the clouds and even saw and took a photo of a young mans face starring at me he did not look happy. I still have the photo. I even often ask God Questions and I receive answers this way. My last Question was about My unborn Granddaughter .I asked If she is Ok and I got a message HEART PROBLEMS writing across the sky plain as day. I just found out 4 days ago her mother had to go get a bunch of Aultrasounds done cause they think the baby might have a HEART PROBLEM. they took a bunch of test and then said they don’t see any problems. I will leave it all in gods hands. And pray.

    Also Once I had a very sick cat and One of my other fur babies had just passed away so Im not sure if she got the sickness from my other cat that we just had laid away. I was so sad off the loss of my other cat and having to watch him struggle to stay alive I asked god please don’t let her suffer to long I really just wanted her to pass away on her own as it was so hard for me to lay my other cat away I felt that maybe I had made a mistake and he could have lived longer so I didn’t want to make the same mistake, So I asked god to please take her if she was ill and going to suffer. On my way back from town I was sitting in the passenger side and looked out my window and there she was in the sky a bog cat face with a big smile on her face and I looked over at my bf at the time and said with a sign of relieve that she had passed away. We were only 12 mins from home and When I got home I went right to the room where I had her and sure enough she had passed away.

    Yesterday,,,I was very scared and unsure,,,,for by man of 6 yrs is failing me on a best friend level,,,so I’m driving and looking up, and first a cross appears then faids, and then an angel,, and then my cats face that’s been gone for 12 yrs? Wonder what means?

  • Selina Khan March 20, 2017, 4:34 pm

    Hi Kristy,

    Many times when we are going through hard times, spirit shows us signs that they are with us. The cross represents faith. The Angel and your cat that you have loving spirit around you and that you are supported by them from the spirit realm.

    2 days ago, I was riding around early in the morning. On my way home, I just so happened to look up, and I seen a baby in the clouds. The baby was curled up like it was still in the womb. It was strange so I got my phone and decided I wanted a picture of it, but when I looked up to take the picture it was gone. I got extremely emotional because my husband and I have been trouble having a baby for a year, and I had a miscarriage last August. I try not to think too much about it, but I just can’t help but rethink that image of a baby.

  • Selina Khan May 31, 2017, 4:21 pm

    Hi Brashay,

    I can understand how that image would upset you as you have been through much. Sometimes spirit shows us images and other times, it’s our own spirit seeing what it projects from our wants, desires, and fears. When it’s spirit showing us images, it’s to let us know that there is still that energy or opening for us and surrounding us. If it’s the mind, then know that it’s a reflection of what we may be working through on an emotional or mental level at the time.

    How to tell the difference? Often time, we see spirit signs when we aren’t looking for them or when we are not attached to the outcome. There is also an energetic difference, but it’s hard for me to describe. Try noticing where the energy comes from when it’s you thinking about it purposely, and when you see something like you did in the clouds. It may give you a clue to whether it’s your mind or not.

    Know that if this is meant to be, it will happen and that if it doesn’t, it’s okay. There are reasons for all things, even if we don’t understand them from a human level.

    Hi Joe,

    There are so many energies that come through our layer of reality! They take advantage of patterns and shapes to come through. Bless you for being open to seeing such beauty in your experience!
