Divine guidance comes only to prepared hearts. People who are locked into one way of thinking are likely to miss this guidance because they have closed their minds to any new options. It is important to enlarge your vision and broaden your perspective. Growing in your vision, helps you become more perceptive of the signs introduced in your life. The signs come in many forms, but its purpose is the same; to give you understanding, to caution you and to prepare you for the journey ahead.
Many people live in the world they are presented with and do not take the time to question what they see. If they happen to question something on a grander scale, they simply accept what they are told.
How you respond to signs presented to you, is usually determined by the situation and source. Be careful when searching for signs because you become more susceptible to being deceived, by discrediting anything that is in opposition of your desire.
