Are Your Signs From the Universe Coming in Clear?
When something happens out of the blue, we say, “the Universe works in mysterious ways.” The truth is that the universe is working tirelessly behind the scenes to guide you towards the best possible life you can have. Most often these signs from the universe are so subtle and hidden that it is easy to miss them altogether or mistake them for coincidences.
The universe to constantly talking to you, but are you hearing it? Do you ever feel like the universe is trying to tell you something, but you just do not understand the message? You might feel this way because you are not fully aware of the “language” of the universe. The answers are likely right in front of you. The “language barrier” with the universe is a major hindrance for many; once you are able to learn the language, your experience of life will only grow. The universe speaks to us all the time. Here are some tips on how you can begin to decode yourself and your life.
Cultivate the Desire to Receive
This is a valuable yet often overlooked starting point for any kind of life exploration. Sometimes we ask questions while simultaneously holding some apprehension about the answers. When posing questions to the universe, this apprehension is noted. If you are not ready to receive, you will not. Be honest with yourself and about the questions you have in life. Are you willing to change?
If you have a sincere, desire to hear from the universe, be willing to accept the answers no matter how or through whom they come. You may receive your answers from a stranger, an unlikely source, a random occurrence or even a billboard. The possibilities are endless. However, you must truly seek it out before it will be revealed to you.
The universe does not have any limits on how it will speak to you. For example, a person may show up at your workplace wearing a T-shirt with a particular phrase on it.
The intelligence of the universe is boundless. It is always connected to you and seeking to strengthen its connection with you. You may not always realize this, particularly if you are in the midst of struggle. Pay more attention to what you are experiencing. Why ask a question, in order to just ignore the answer? Watch your environment a little more closely during these times of seeking. You may be surprised at what pops out at you when you actually pay attention.
The universe is not subtle. When a message is sent, it is meant to be heard loud and clear. Just because we do not get it at first does not mean that it is not there. Sometimes these messages will be sent repeatedly until we get them. So pay attention, make note, and begin to unlock those hidden potentialities in the recurring experiences of your life.
Fine Tune Your Sensitivity
To become more aware of the signs from the universe, start by paying more attention to yourself. Remember that you and the universe are one, which means a true sign from creation should resonate with you on some level. Even if you do not understand it, your higher facilities will alert you that something is significant about the occurrence, person, or symbol. We all have our own levels of awareness. This skill can be cultivated through self-reflection and meditation. The more you allow yourself to tune into your intuition and inner world, the more loudly and clearly your dialogue with the universe becomes.
Six Common Signs from the Universe
Dreams. Your unconscious mind is the part of you that is most deeply rooted in the wider universe and is most open to receiving messages. And these messages are often passed on through the medium of dreams. It is when we are asleep that we tune in to our unconscious minds for long enough to absorb the message being sent.
Animals. The natural world has many vessels through which it can send the universe’s messages, and none more important than animals. Repeated sightings of a particular animal or animal behavior can be a strong sign of unfulfilled desires or of things to come. For example, continually noticing flocks of birds flying high in the sky might be a sign that you feel the need to travel and escape for a while. There are a number of good websites online that can assist with your animal interpretations.
Synchronicity. No doubt you have experienced this one — when you are thinking about someone just before they call, text, or you bump into them in person. Most often, this is a sign that you are on the right path. It is the universe’s way of confirming to you that your thoughts perfectly align with your future reality. It is the universe giving you a big “yes” to confirm that you are heading in the right direction.
Losing/Finding/Breaking Objects. Our relationship with the things we possess is strong; we see ourselves and our lives among the objects we live with and around. So it should not come as a surprise to learn that the universe may send messages through these things. When we lose something, find something, or break something, it can signify various different things. Finding something is quite often designed to jog a memory within your mind, while breaking something is often seen as a sign that you need to let go of the past.
Songs/Music/Lyrics. Have you ever woken up and instantly had a song in your head? Or have you been going about life when all of a sudden you hear a specific piece of music? Our minds often create complex associations between music and our emotions. The universe can then use specific songs, tunes or lyrics to convey important information to you.
Emotions That Are Out Of Place. Our feelings can be very important messengers, but when it comes to passing on directions from the universe, it is the emotions that seem out of place that hold the most importance. For example, if you are in a safe place, but suddenly feel overcome with unexplained fear and trepidation, there might be good reason to be extra cautious.
Remember: when you know or need to know, you will. There will be no confusion or doubt about what is being said. Seek out this kind of relationship with the universe and it will most certainly support it. Recognizing and receiving information through signs depends on willingness, earnest seeking, and just plain listening. The universe is always here to help us, so let it help, and pay attention to what it is telling you.
