We all know that the universe sends us messages every day. Some people call them signs, and some people just think they’re coincidences.

But I believe they are there to help guide you on your journey through life and make it easier for you to find what you need – whether it be a new job or a new home.

Here are 18 signs you need to pay attention to!

1. Recurring Experiences

The universe could be trying to tell you if you are on the right path or not.

If you repeatedly encounter certain signs, there is a good chance that they are messages from the universe.

Signs that are sent by the Universe can be seen everywhere, but they often take subtle forms.

If something happens once, it’s not always the Universe trying to send you a message.

However, if it starts happening more than that, there is definitely something bigger at play here!

Pay attention when you start seeing these signs more regularly.

2. Dreams

One of the ways you can tell the universe is trying to communicate with you is through your dreams.

Our brains are incredibly active while we’re sleeping and our subconscious minds can send us messages in our dreams, especially if it’s trying to convey something important like a warning or lesson about the future.

You might remember having dreams about people or events that will play out in your life.

In fact, when you learn about the messages through dreams and start paying attention to them, then it’s a possibility that they’ll happen more often because you’re calling on the Universe for information.

Your unconscious mind is the part of you that is most open to receiving messages from the Universe.

3. Animals And Nature

You’ve come across many of these in your life, and perhaps you’ve even experienced a few of them.

Animals often come to our rescue because they can sense when we’re in trouble or need help.

Sometimes animals reveal themselves to us when they are most unexpected.

When you have a connection with an animal, they often show up in your life when you need them the most.

They never fail to make their presence known and give us a reassuring message that everything will be okay.

It’s like they’re always there for us whether we realize it or not!

Repeated sightings of an animal can be a sign of what’s to come.

When an animal keeps showing up, it can mean that there is a lesson for you to learn.

For example, when you see birds in a flock high in the sky, there might be a hidden message for you.

The natural world is a reflection of our inner world.

Animals are often used as symbols to teach us something about ourselves and guide us.

4. Patterns Of Numbers

There will be a time when you see numbers repeating in your life.

It’s important to pay attention because this is the universe sending you a message!

For example, you haven’t checked the time for ages, and you get the sudden urge to look at your phone or watch, and the time is 11:11, 2:22, 22:22, etc.

These numbers are the universe’s way of telling you to take notice and look into what they mean because something significant is going on!

The universe sends us the most powerful messages through numbers, letters, and words during times of immense change or transition in our lives.

These are extremely significant moments that will have a major effect on how your future unfolds – so make sure to read between the lines!

5. Synchronicity

Synchronicity happens for a reason because the universe is trying to tell you something.

These small moments of coincidence aren’t accidents, they’re clues.

A good example of this is when you’re thinking of someone, they call or text.

The universe wants your attention and will go out of its way to get it.

These coincidences are indicators that there’s something the universe needs to tell you about yourself, other people, or situations in your life.

Paying special attention to these small moments can improve your understanding of who you are and what is important to you.

Now is a good time to connect with your spirit guides to ask for help with understanding the universe’s messages.

6. Recurring Words/Phrases

There is a deep meaning to words and phrases that keep popping up in life.

For example, the universe might send you the phrase “slow down” over and over again until you finally take heed to its advice.

Messages are sent through many different mediums, including people, books that are read, or songs you hear on the radio.

It usually means that the universe is trying to tell you something, and it’s time for a change in your life.

7. Pain And Illness

There will be situations when you are in so much pain, be it physical or mental.

The universe will send you messages telling you to stop what you are doing and take care of yourself.

Listen to these messages because they’re trying to protect you from further damage that could lead to serious health issues.

The location of the pain of illness might have a hidden meaning, something you want to pay close attention to.

It might be a sign of something you need to change in your life.

Our body has a way to communicate with us, so always listen to its messages.

8. Accidents

Accidents are big signs of warning from the universe that you need to pay attention to.

You are likely ignoring some important messages that are being sent your way.

Pay close attention the next time an accident happens near you, as it could be a big sign of something bigger!

9. Songs/Music/Lyrics

There might be a song that you love that just keeps popping up everywhere at different times.

It reminds you of a person or event that allows you to feel happy.

It could be the universe giving you some indication to go there again for emotional healing.

If you’re going through a tough time in your life and out of nowhere you hear the perfect song to help you find the answer you’ve been looking for, that is the universe sending you a message.

It may even be in the form of lyrics from your favorite song or artist.

Often songs have messages that you are heading in the right direction.

10. Unexpected Meetings

When you meet people randomly, there’s a reason for it.

Whether that be an old friend from school or someone you met on the bus and ended up talking for 15 minutes- realize why they were put in your path and what they might represent.

You never know when someone will end up being important again later down the line.

That person might have specific information on the direction you need to be going in.

Sometimes people are just there to remind you of something, so they’ll come back later when it’s time for that thing to happen.

Also, when you have a relationship with someone, it’s never random.

That person was put in your path for a reason- to teach you something, show you some aspect of yourself or help build up some part of who you are as an individual- so take the time to thank them.

There will be important times you will learn from them and build the inner strength to keep going when things aren’t easy.

The universe is sending you a message through these people. Embrace them, learn from them, and take advantage of every opportunity a path presents to you.

11. Emotions That Are Out Of Place

There will be times you will notice that your emotions do not fit the situation.

It is normal to feel a heightened sense of happiness when you win or something great happens, but it can be strange if you are feeling intense sadness even though nothing bad has occurred.

And you will want to be aware of this because it is a message from the universe that something needs to change.

12. Smells

There will be a sense of smell that is different than anything you have ever smelled.

This could be linked to a person, place, or thing, and it will seem familiar, yet strange all at the same time.

This is a message from the universe to pay attention to.

You are being given a clue that something is about to happen or someone will appear in your life who you may have met before, but not quite remember.

13. Intuition/Gut feelings

People always say you should always listen to your intuition because it’s never wrong.

Intuition is the universe’s way of helping you to be mindful of your situation and what’s going on around you.

It can feel as though the universe is giving us messages in those few seconds of clarity.

14. Déjà vu

We all experience Déjà vu, those strange but perfect moments where you can’t help but feel that this has happened before.

In most cases, Déjà vu happens when we spot a small detail in our current situation that triggers an intense memory from the past.

The universe is trying to send us a message through these experiences, and often it’s not until later down the line or even after years have passed by that we understand the message.

15. Things Falling Into Place

Sometimes there will be clear signs when everything just falls into place.

There might be a moment where you are just in awe of how everything is working out.

Understand that everything happens for a reason and these are the universe’s way of telling you something.

16. Thoughts During Meditation

If you are a highly spiritual person, then you will understand why you would receive random thoughts during meditation.

Often we tend to ignore these messages, but they are usually related to something in our life that we need to pay attention to.

During your meditation, if you find yourself thinking about a certain part of your day or even an individual, then it is likely that the universe is giving you signs.

These random thoughts can be the guidance you need to get your life on track or to deal with a certain issue.

17. Unplanned Success In Your Life

If you have found success in your life know that it’s always from a higher place.

When you have a sense of accomplishment that feels bigger than yourself, it’s from the universe.

Even if something was an accident or serendipitous, know that there is no such thing as coincidence and everything happens for a reason.

There is a reason why you found yourself in that exact moment at the universe’s specific timing.

And you should trust the universe because it shows you that everything is going to be okay.

18. Losing or Finding Objects

There will be a certain time when you lose something, for example, your car keys.

And you will find them at an opportune moment. You’ll then realize that it was meant to be that you find them at a certain time.

There’s a reason why we lose various things, and it prevents us from participating in certain gatherings, events, and activities.

You will also find things at a certain time, like a book you were looking for or even your wallet.

These instances are universe messages to prevent us from doing something that may be harmful to ourselves in the long run.

What Can you do To Receive a sign from The Universe?

The best way to communicate with the universe is to ask for a sign.

It’s really powerful to ask for a sign from the universe because it means you’re willing to let go of all your preconceived ideas about how things should be.

You have complete trust that what will happen if anything happens at all, is absolutely for your highest good and well-being.

We’re just open to receive love in return.
