Is There Such a Thing as a Sign from The “Universe”?

The universe does communicate with us through signs. It’s constantly working to make available to you the resources, the people, the tools, you need to live the life you were created for.

It is trying to get our attention. It is trying to guide us, connect with us, and teach us lessons that we need. That’s why it is extremely important to pay attention to signs from the universe.

There are plenty of signs out there, but what exactly are we looking for? Are we listening? How do we know what to look out for?

How many times do we ask for a sign when we are confused about choices? Have you ever wished you had a sign for what direction to take in life?

How many times have you asked the universe to send you the answer to that pressing question?

Sometimes, the problem isn’t asking for a sign, but how we receive it.

When you connect with the universe, you’ll find out that things run smoothly and life feels less chaotic and confusing, and you start to feel more aligned and peaceful.

However, we live in a physical world that allows for limitations. Unlike the movies, no angels are falling from the sky, and no face-up in the clouds guiding you, and no spirit tapping your shoulders saying, “Yes, you should take a vacation.”

The universe doesn’t always make these signs obvious, or even easy to spot. Rather, it uses subtler and creative ways to get the message across.

Though some can be loud, direct, and obvious, it is often subtle, quiet, and gentle.

How can we identify these signs? The key is to live in your present so you can tune in to whatever sign shows up in your life.

If you are always overthinking, busy, overanalyzing, you wouldn’t find the time to connect with the little things going on around you.

The universe is not at a particular place, it is EVERYWHERE. It’s present in everything and everyone – it’s all around you and within you.

That means you can get a sign in the shower, when you are casually scrolling through social media, washing the dishes, or even by overhearing a conversation.

Each sign has a message that is unique to you, showing you what you need to do and where you need to go to create the life you dream of.

Now we have established that signs are real, here are powerful ways the universe communicates with us.

The Universe Communicates with Us through People

The universe comes to us through people. It has a way of using people as a means to get its message across to us.

This can be done through meeting a random person who tells us something or does something that brings a spark inside of us. It could trigger a feeling inside of us. Sometimes we can get a random call or text, overhear a conversation between two people, or hear a message from the radio or TV station.

Not everything you hear or see is a sign, but it becomes one when it answers a particular question, or addresses an issue, or gives you an answer that relates to what you were looking for.

You might feel that it is too random, but you have to follow it.

Ask Yourself if it Brings You Joy

One thing I like to do is ask myself if I’m happy. When you are experiencing joy, it is a sign from the universe that you are on the right track.

On the other hand, when you are not doing what you are supposed to be doing, you might feel deeply unhappy with your life.

If you are not happy with your job or where you are leaving, or an aspect in your life, it might be the universe telling you that it’s time for a change.

The change might be leaving your job or changing your attitude towards your work.

As you navigate through life, try to pay close attention to areas you are experiencing joy, happiness, and fulfillment.

That is the universe telling you that this is what you are meant to be doing. And once you are on the right path, you’ll create more opportunities for yourself.

Setbacks, Roadblocks, and Delays

There are times in life when it seems like everything is falling apart, and when you thought it couldn’t get worse, something unexpected shows up at your window.

Your car breaks down on the way to an important meeting you’ve scheduled months ago, your flight gets delayed and you need to attend your daughter’s college graduation, you lose your job, you get sick, etc., life might be trying to nudge you in a different path.

These things are usually out of our control, so it’s best not to get worked up over it, but to accept it and take it as a sign that something better is going to happen.

The universe might be trying to put you back on the right path. It could also be that your energy is shifting towards negative thoughts and you need to align your mindset with positive things.

Oftentimes, when delays and denials happen, it could be an opportunity to let go and awaken your mind. So rather than being sad, use that time to rethink and reevaluate changes that have been happening to see if what you do aligns with your purpose.


The universe’s communication with you is a two-way street. If you are ever at loss for the direction you should take, you can always ask the universe for divine guidance.

Signs are real and you should pay attention to them. If something shows up persistently and repeatedly, it’s a surefire way to tell that the universe is sending you a sign.

When these signs come to do, don’t overthink and overanalyze them to try to make them make logical sense. Always trust your guts and know that the universe talks to you in simple ways.

It has your back. It’s there to guide you and give you answers. It’s there to support and protect you every step of the way. It’s there to remind you that you are not alone.
