In indigenous societies, people knew how to interpret the signs in their lives. An eagle flew overhead and it was viewed as a blessing from the Great Spirit. Linn argues in this book that we need to re-learn the secret language of signs whether they come in a dream, in an overheard conversation, in a chance encounter with a friend, in a movie, or in the antics of a pet. "Even ordinary, everyday events in your life carry communications from the realm of spirit," writes the author.

Linn shows how these signs can reflect our inner state of being, our spiritual development, and our understanding of self and our relationships with others. In the second half of this insightful volume, the author presents a sign dictionary. Here a flat tire signifies a lack of balance in your life, a treadmill may reveal that you are stuck in some old pattern, and a penny could indicate a small change in your life.
