Signs the Universe is Talking to You
We are constantly being bombarded with information from the world around us. In order to survive, our brains and body are hardwired to filter most of that information out.
The only problem with this filtering mechanism is that it is usually programmed based on faulty beliefs that we acquired at a young age. These stories can cause us to shut down our subtle or psychic senses and intuition.
Despite being closed down, the Universe communicates with us non-stop.
Sometimes we download cosmic information into our energy fields without even realizing it. One way we can begin to open up our extrasensory perception is by consciously being alert to the signs around us.
To recognize these signs, we want to be aware and present at the moment we receive the information. We can be more intentional about realizing when the universe sends us signs and with those signs can come the additional information we need to move forward in life and towards our goals.
Each soul comes into this world with its own set of goals. These goals help us to fulfill our potential and also are a part of a bigger plan. This is why when you have a desire, the universe wants you to achieve it. Yet, there are things that can get in the way of achieving our goals. Primarily what limits us are our beliefs, both conscious and subconscious.
That is why the cosmos sometimes force things to happen. Mistakes and undesirable situations can lead us to remember what our soul wants. The universe sends us messages and signals to return us to our soul’s path. It begins with a whisper and if not heeded can turn into a shout.
To recognize signs from the universe, you want to start by setting the intention that you are open to receiving them. We need to pay attention and ask for clarity on any messages coming from the Universe. There are several ways the Universe can send you a message. Those ways can be
1. Through Angel Numbers
If you often see a specific sequence of numbers, these have meanings that point to messages. Repetitive numbers such as 1111, 222, 11:11, and the like, mean that the Universe is sending you a message. The message can correspond with the number. When you see this number you can also be present and open up to see what additional information comes through for you in that moment.
These can be signs that you are on the right path or if you know the message the specific number represents that you need to listen to that message. You can find more information about angel numbers in the article here.
Synchronicity is a really fun way that the Universe communicates with you. As you continue to open up your subtle senses, you will find you see the synchronicity around you more frequently.
Carl Jung, a Swiss psychologist coined this term, and his definition was the acausal connection of two or more psychic and physical phenomena.
Although the term acausal is used, the events are always connected through intention and observation, bringing a possibility into reality.
Have you ever thought about someone or something and it/they show up in your life? It’s an act of synchronicity when things happen at the right time when you start to think about them.
Another example of synchronicity is perhaps you may think it’s time to change direction in your career. You then start to see job openings or classes you can take that reaffirm your thoughts. It’s synchronicity from the universe saying that the new path is open to you.
Synchronicity opens a door you can walk through to achieve what you want to manifest in your life.
3. Through dreams
If you dream the same dream over and over again, try to journal about it and interpret it. The Universe is trying to send you the same message because you did not understand it. There are deeper meanings in our dreams that come from our subconscious. When interpreted, the dream can help us to develop new insight as well as clear beliefs, energy, and memories that no longer serve us.
Because it is your subconscious mind sending you the information, you will always be the best person to decipher your dreams. Keep a journal near your bed to jot down remnants of your dreams if you feel they have a deeper meaning you can explore.
4. Through nature and objects in your environment
Pay attention to what you reject and what attracts you. Where is your focus most of the time? What do you see most often?
For example, if you enjoy having your home decorated with wolves, there is a deeper spiritual meaning. Anything that draws you towards it has a reason. The wolf for example, can represent a time in your life when you need to be a part of something bigger than you, similar to the way a wolf belongs to a pack. Or it could mean that you need to be a leader in your life.
When you notice that you feel drawn towards something, go within and ask what it means for you. Each of us may interpret an object’s meaning differently based on our situation.
5. Listen to your body
Learn to listen to your body. If you feel uneasy about an event or decision that is your clairsentience coming through.
Listen to what you are saying to yourself. Those messages are using your subtle sense of hearing to talk to you.
Your body holds clues to your true self. When you are in tune with what messages the universe sends through your body, you can recognize the signs. For example, you might find you begin to have trouble with your ankle. It could be your body’s way of telling you that a decision needs to be made in your life before you move forward.
If you are not familiar with what your body is saying to you, the post I wrote about messages from your body can be helpful.
- You are always losing things.
- You are often sick or mentally tired.
- You have become anxious.
- You have a problem with your sleep pattern.
- You have uncomfortable feelings in your stomach.
- You have become very clumsy.
- You get into fights with people around you.
- You notice unusual delays, obstacles, and challenges.
- You have a sense of weight on your shoulders
- You’ve lost your sense of direction or what’s next for your life.
- You feel pulled in many directions, but you talk yourself out of them.
The best way is to relax, clear your mind, and practice mindfulness. Be present in the moment and allow the past and future to drift away. Set the intention that you are open to receiving messages from the Universe and then as you go through your day, have fun as the information flows to you.
This week, choose one of the ways the universe connects with you listed above (angel numbers, synchronicity etc.) and be open to receiving information that way. Watch as things unfold.
