How wonderful our lives would be if we could always recognise the signs the Universe is sending us and understand exactly what they mean.
I am sure there’s been many times when you have said “It’s a sign from the Universe”. So why did you say this and what did you mean?
Being the spiritual being that you are, you are fully aware that you are not alone and that the Divine Spirit, Source Energy or the Universe is with you at all times to help and guide you. The Universe works in mysterious ways and the guidance it offers is often very subtle.
Although we might not realise it, we are on the constant lookout for signs from the Universe. And when we have a major decision to make, we look for signs to lead us in the right direction so we make the choice that is right for us.
We would understand the guidance that the Universe is giving us. We would be confident in our choices. Our minds would be clear and our actions precise. Our experiences would be positive and we would feel blessed.
We look for confirmation that the choice we are about to make is the right one. If it’s the wrong one, we want to know, and look for signs from the Universe to stop us making a bad choice that would impact our lives negatively.
So why do so many people ignore these signs?
There are two reasons for this. Firstly, they don’t fully recognise or understand what the sign is and what it means, and secondly, it’s not matching what you really want to do.
Let’s explore this a little deeper.
What Is a Sign from the Universe?
Universal signs and messages to you can be both physical and non-physical. Physical signs can be seen or heard whilst non-physical signs can be felt.
Physical Signs from the Universe
You look at the clock at the time is 1.11. You know that’s a sign from the Universe, but you’re not sure exactly what the message is.
A feather falls in front of you. Is it a sign of love? Is it a positive sign that you’re on the right path?
A song comes on the radio, or you walk into a shop and a special song is playing. You walk into the next shop and the same song plays again. Is this a coincidence or is the Universe trying to tell you something?
What is it trying to tell you?
You run into someone you haven’t seen or perhaps even thought of for a while. Is there meaning in this chance encounter?
You see a penny on the road. Is this a sign of good luck? A black cat walks in front of you. Is this a warning?
Non-Physical Signs from the Universe
The Universe communicates with you directly. On a deep level you receive the message and it manifests in a feeling. Sometimes there can be an action that happens before the feeling.
You jump out of bed and stub your toe or you trip and hurt yourself. You notice a dreadful knot in your stomach for no particular reason. You can’t find something that you know exactly where it should be. You feel enveloped by a sense of calm or are unusually energised and focused. You have a sudden craving for a particular type of food or drink. You have a dream which perplexes you which you don’t understand, leaving you feeling confused.
These messages are often ignored because they are not actually understood to be messages. We often place our own worries or expectations on them. You have a bill to pay and don’t have enough money to pay it, so you feel apprehensive so when you get the knot in the pit of your stomach, you associate it with your unpaid bill, but this is not necessarily the point of the message.
Or when you have that chance encounter and you take it at face value without carefully listening to what is being said to you. It would be so easy if all messages from the Universe were clear and obvious but unfortunately Source Energy doesn’t email, knock on your door, call or use social media, that is, directly. The message or sign can be delivered indirectly, perhaps in that chance encounter.
It’s one thing to recognise a sign from the Universe, and quite another to interpret it correctly. Our own thoughts and pre-conceptions can twist the message into what we want it to mean, rather than what it actually means. You are thinking about going on a holiday and see an advertisement for a holiday in a destination you always wanted to visit, and because you believe in your dreams, you interpret this as a sign from the Universe that you should go and book the holiday. While on holiday you fall and break a leg. Is this what the Universe was wanting for you? No – definitely not! This is an example of you projecting your wants and desires onto something and thus interpreting the sign incorrectly.
So How Do You Know If It’s Really a Sign from the Universe?
Observe your surroundings closely. Listen fully. Have an open heart and an open and quiet mind. Monitor your feelings. Don't try and see what you want to see. See only what is. Let the Universe guide you.
There are no coincidences. Universal signs are all around us. We just have to learn to see them and to interpret them correctly. If you can master this, your life will change. You will no longer make bad choices. You will find yourself in the right place at the right time, all the time!
