Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Linn (Sacred Space: Clearing and Enhancing the Energy of Your Home, Ballantine, 1995), a healer and practitioner of interior alignment, discusses how signs and portents appear in our lives and how we can interpret them. Her present work assures the reader that the universe is always putting out signs that, if read properly, will furnish understanding and assistance from other realms. Linn also discusses how we can call for signs, as well as the role of mistakes and coincidences in our lives. The bulk of her book is a dictionary of meaning of signs, from major life changes such as miscarriages to small objects such as cameras or garbage. The meanings are frequently posed in the form of questions. While Linn's essays and introduction are intriguing to someone beginning to explore alternative consciousness or spirituality, the dictionary analyses are frequently incomplete and necessarily impersonal.

Denise Linn is an author I trust. This book clarifies and teaches in countless examples how very ordinary things bring powerful messages to us everyday. At first I felt overwhelmed by my heightened awareness, then things began to settle into a natural, integrated process. The sign dictionary at the back of the book is vital to interpreting simple signs that keep reappearing. Reading signs is like learning a foreign language and her book is so easy to read I keep reading it over and over like a reference book. The personal stories she shares makes the book entertaining and instructional. GREAT BOOK - GREAT GIFT.

I found this book shortly after it's 1996 publication, under the title SIGNPOSTS, and devoured it with great pleasure. It gives useful instruction on how to understand and interpret the messages which the Universe is constantly sending to us, if only we knew how to read them. It also helps the reader to become increasingly receptive to these signs, and more aware of the meaningful coincidences that ocur in everyone's life. The best thing about this book is that I've been able to go back to it, so many times over the years, to refer to the SINGPOSTS DICTIONARY - which always helps me to interpret a mysterious sign that has appeared in my life. Though such a dictionary could never be complete because of the infinite possibilities offered by the Universe, the definitions in Denise Linn's dictionary have always pointed me towards a deeper understanding of the magical signs and coincidences I've experienced. I highly recommend this book.

Yes, it is true that have the book is a "signs dictionary", but that is the part that I read and enjoy! I have found that these signs are relevant to every day life. I particularly have found the signs, Smoke, Hawk, Money, Rain, Death, and Owl to be right on the money. There are so many more! The signs, to me, point out some message from God in my everyday life. I just have to open my eyes. I have given this book as a gift, many times and will continue to do so! I strongly reccomend this book as "food for thought".

I have had my copy of this book for well over 5 years and without a doubt I can say this is the best book I have ever read on dream interpretation. And this is not only a book on Dreams. The Secret Language of Signs also encourages you to look for signs and symbols in your waking life, which you will find are easily as abundant as the signs in your dreaming life.

The first four chapters of this book are dedicated to helping the reader discover how to work with signs and symbols in waking life as well as the dreamtime. The bulk of the book is a remarkable dream dictionary which gives a great starting point in working with symbols, but is not so specific as to be either limiting or ridiculous.

I find Miss Linn's writing enjoyable and easy to understand and would highly recommend this wonderful book for both the beginning and advanced dreamworker.

There are very few books I'd give five stars but this is one of them. Unlike many books on dream or sign interpretation, Denise Linn offers multiple definitions for each "sign" and reinforces following your own guidance and intuition to see what rings true for you.

Rather than just providing individual definitions, she teaches you how to interpret things for yourself so if you come across something that is not listed in this extensive guide, you will be able to find your own meaning.

I've used this book extensively for my personal life and in helping others. The only drawback is that once other people take a look at it, they want to take the book home with them!

I've had my copy for almost ten years now and still use it to this day. I've even had a few dreams I thought would be impossible to make sense of, but after using The Secret Language of Signs found peace and understanding in them.

I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand their dreamlife or who is noticing "things" around them in every day life and would like to figure out their messages.

The interpretations provided within make sense and are collected from a wide variety of sources and are easy to use no matter what your spiritual or cultural background is.

I have been a huge Denise Linn fan for a while. This book will explain what everyday signs in your life mean. It is sometimes hard to find a specific sign that you might see - but she does have explain what that symbol (instead of seeing a funeral on a cold rainy morning - she will explain what seeing a funeral means)
There are a lot more signs than just a funeral. The lil bird outside your window every morning could be a sign too.

I started listening to Denise Linn on Hay House Radio about a year ago. She sounds kind of goofy and silly but really knows what she's talking about.

I've been a believer in Signs for at least 25 years. I don't believe in coincidence but I wanted a different perspective. A "fresh eye".

Denise is a master at attuning to signs and what they're trying to tell us. She has spent years with indigenous people all over the world as well as living in a Zen Buddhist Monastery for several years. Denise is Cherokee so she also has family experience in honoring omens and signs.

The Universe is always sending signs but each individual "picks up on" the one meant specifically for them. Let me explain - 2 people can see the same butterfly. One will take it as a sign of renewal, transformation and beauty. The person standing right next to her/him will see it as a sign from a passed loved one who said they would send a butterfly (perhaps a specific kind) to show they crossed safely. Each person is correct. It's like witnessing any experience in life. Every person has their own, personal view. AND - maybe there was a 3rd person - right next to the other 2 who didn't notice the butterfly at all.

Denise explains how to calm down and be open to receiving signs. How to interpret them. You can even designate a sign you'd like to see. At one time, I designated dragons. A short time after, I saw dragons where I least expected them.

Signs may also come by overhearing other peoples conversations. Freudian slips, anything you think is a mistake may actually be a sign.

There's a Sign Dictionary in the back of the book but Denise reminds the reader to take into account personal feelings about each subject/sign.

I enjoyed "The Secret Language of Signs" because it's not cut and dry. It's about possibility and becoming attuned to the help - through signs - that is Always there, if we just pay attention.
