Red Shoes – Sign from Spirit Guides

Sign from Spirit Guides

Ever wish you could get an answer from the Universe or your Spirit Guides? You don’t need to be able to hear them to get an answer. In fact, there are numerous ways you can work with your Spirit Guides. In the third level of my Intuition Development Workshop Series (Introduction to Mediumship), we learn to work more closely with your family in spirit, Spirit Guides, Angels, and Ascended Masters. This is an example of one way you can work with them.

So what do red shoes have to do with Spirit Guides? Here’s how one of my students got the answer to her question and ended up changing the direction of her life path.

In class, we discussed how you can ask for a sign from your Spirit Guides. I shared with my students how when I was in the corporate world, I was feeling unsure about something and asked for a sign from my Guides. I asked for a white feather.

Now working downtown there are a ton of pigeons, so lots of little white feathers were everywhere! But I couldn’t trust that. I needed a clear sign. So I asked for a white feather that I knew I would recognize as “the one”.

About 4 days after this request to my Spirit Guides, I was walking up the stairs to work and there was a large white feather laying right there. It was way too big to be a pigeon feather. It looked perfectly placed there as if someone had laid it at my feet and I knew it was a sign that I was supported.

A few weeks later, one of my students told us that she had been thinking of making a major career change. She was sitting in her car, waiting to go into a meeting that would be the big step of this new change. But she wasn’t sure. This was a big decision.

“If this is where I’m supposed to go Spirit Guides, then I need a sign,” she said out loud. But what kind of sign? Okay, then. “I want to hear someone talk about red shoes and that’s the sign that this is the right decision for me.”

Then she thought that she should just go. So she got out of her car and walked toward the door of the building. There were a couple of women standing in front waiting for one of their friends to arrive. As she passed by them she heard them talking…

“Oh you’ll really like her, and she has the coolest RED BOOTS you’ve ever seen!”

Now that’s a sign! You may be thinking – hey wait a minute, she wanted red shoes so red boots doesn’t count. Listen, if my white feather had a black tip to it, do you think I would have said that’s not good enough? Your Spirit Guides deliver an answer to your request in the way they can work circumstances around you.

Ask and you will receive!

    I am terrified… For the past 2 month I have been questioning myself whether I am on the right track… In terms of complicated relationship situation, I asked for a sign: spider going up. An hour later my husband called me into the family room and told: look at this huge spider, I have never seen such a big one running up the wall…

    My guides suggest that you need to to let go. The sign isn’t the problem. It’s the way you are looking at it. It’s suggested that you learn to deal with the problem without scaring yourself. Signs are just that – road markers to let you know if you are on the right track. They aren’t meant to be the deciding factor. You take responsibility as to how to react to the sign. And you take responsibility as to what to do when you see the sign.

    So let’s say you were able to be mentally and emotionally be clear before asking for the sign of a spider and then let go of if you see one or not (no expectations for the outcome). This way your energy and mind won’t be looking for the spider. Your energy and mind won’t create something from a fear point. Instead, your guides bring it to you.

    Your husband calls you into the family room and shows you a big spider. You are still hesitant to say that was a sign and are wondering if was coincidence. Ask for confirmation in another way.

    Let me know what happens.

    I asked my guides to let me know if my ex is coming back or if im holding on for no reason – i asked if he is coming back let me hear his name on the car radio on the way home. I changed stations as the music was boring and low and behold the DJ on that show had his name!

    My guides have sent me signs for years. Once, my sister called me up out of the blue and asked if I wanted to hop on a bus to New York in four hours. I was unsure of the opportunity and if I would be safe going alone with just my sister. After I told her I needed to think about it, I asked my guides for a sign. I turned on the TV and there was Gilmore Girls playing where one of the actors goes to New York on a whim.
    Second, I have asked my guides to help me know I am not alone and that I am on the right path by coming across a penny. Depending on if it is heads of tails, I will know if I am doing ok or if I need to watch out for something.
    During a very bad day, I was heading to a friends house. Once I got to the GO bus stop I found over 100 pennies over the floor and the seat I normally sit in. I picked them up and vowed that every time I get one of these signs, I’ll pick the penny up and donate it to charity. I have donated over $50 in spare change since this first started in 2007.

    I love your experiences! Truly pennies from heaven! And what a wonderful idea to do with your penny signs. Thanks for sharing this.

    Hi Selina, my sis in law told me about your blog and to read this article. I lost my grandmother this week who was very dear to me. When I got back from work yesterday I saw a small white feather on the carpet in my room. I didn’t realize its meaning till i read about it on the internet and then your blog on spiritual guides. I’m deeply overwhelmed on how it found its way especially when it has been raining heavily last few days. I look forward to reading more articles on your site 🙂

  • admin April 20, 2012, 9:27 pm

    Thank you for sharing this with us! I’m sorry to hear about your grandmother and I’m glad to see that you are finding signs of support from the Spirit World. Take care!

    I love the way you describe your guides changing as shift work! LOL! Yes, sometimes particular guides work with us for a time or a guide may have a specific way of helping us. For example, I have my main two guides who are with me all the time. They help in everything. Then I have a newer guide who came last year and he helps me specifically in mediumship. Before this newer guide, my other two guides helped with mediumship. I asked for a new one – but that’s another story which I’ll blog about!

    Your guides never leave you. My surmise is that you are blocking the connection. Think about what was going on in your life just before you “lost” your connection. It may help to pin point the block.

    I don’t feel there is interference. I would suggest you sit in a calm state and ask them to come in really, really close to you with strong energy. Ask them to touch you, give you a scent, wrap their energy around you. Use all of your clairs to re-establish your connection. The biggest thing to do is to realize they are still there and it’s the mind that blocks. As you do this, be aware of your own emotions and thoughts as well as this will help you to identify what the block is.

    Hi Selina,

    I use to feel my guides around me all the time. I also know they changed from time to time like they did shift work.

    Over the last 18 months I feel like they haven’t been around?….. None of them and I was just wanting some guidance on how to reconnect?

    Am I blocking my guides off or is there an interference?

    Hi Selina,

    I had gotten on the school bus in the morning when I was 14, in grade 9, and I said “something bad is going to happen”. I don’t know what made me say it, but I said it out loud. The whole school bus went quiet and everyone looked at me. I quietly went and sat in a seat. That evening my parents asked my siblings and I if we wanted to go shopping with them and we all said no. At 9pm that night the phone rang. I started to cry before it was picked up by my uncle. I knew that my parents were in an accident. My parents are still alive, Thank god!

    Over the years I have dabbled a bit with telling people things as I felt them and the feeling I get is quite strong, however, lately I feel as if I’m out of touch with that “feeling” and I’m not getting messages from my spirit guides. I’ve tried to connect with them. Do you have any suggestions? I’d really like to develop my gift and help others. I would like the love to shine from my heart into my hands so that I can calm people with my presence and make them feel good. I used to feel lots of energy in my hands but lately even that has started to diminish… I really need your advice as to how to get it back.

    Thank you for your comment! Interesting experience with your gift. Some suggestions for improving the energy flow –
    1. Clear your chakras and aura daily
    2. Strengthen your aura by “breathing” in prana
    3. Put your hands on your heart and solar plexus and see blue or white light coming from the universe through you and out your hands.

    Mostly it’s a matter of practice. Also to know deep in your heart that you are always connected. Start to believe and soon, with some energy work and practice, your flow will be back.

    Hi my name is Edwina my husband divorced me this year and would like to know if you could please please I’m begging you help me to get back together with my ex husband I love him so much I can’t stand to be away from him I’m always sad and I’m suffering from depression everyday I wake up I feel scared I cry all the time I just want to kill myself I miss my ex husband a woman gave him some stuff to make him stop loving me and I can’t do anything about it I’m helpless and alone I don’t have money my ex husband used to work for me please find it in your heart to help me

  • Selina Khan January 19, 2017, 5:36 pm

    Hi Edwina,

    I’m so sorry that you are struggling with the end of your marriage. Edwina no one can force another to return. There is free will. Also, I believe it is unethical to try to energetically force someone and I don’t do that kind of work. Please be careful. When we are vulnerable and desperate it’s easy to be taken advantage of by others who promise to get your husband back but are only in it for the money.
