With so much going on in life, it can be very difficult to know what to do. Do you follow your heart or your head? Do you go after your dreams? Should you ask for a raise? Are you in the right career? Is this the right relationship? The list goes on and on. Popular mindful advice will tell you to listen to the Universe. So you wait and you wait. And then you think to yourself "how am I suppose to know what the Universe wants?" Here are some signs to help you recognize if you are being sent a message.
1. Opportunities come out of nowhere. Often times we think that we are the ones arranging our lives but there is a bigger force at work. Sometimes you get a opportunity that you have done almost nothing to make happen. This is almost a sure indication that the Universe is assisting you.
2. You see synchronicities more and more. Whether from the Universe or our Spirit Guides, synchronicities are things that appear random but actually hold deeper meaning. This is how the Universe talks to you directly. When these things happen, you know you are receiving divine guidance and that you are on the right path.
3. Resources appear when you need them. There have been countless times that I needed something like money and had no idea how I would get it. Then it would magically appear out of the blue. It would be the exact amount that I needed and would come just in time. The Universe is abundant. It may not always give us what we want, when we want it, but it will give us what we need. Like spiritual leader Gabrielle Bernstein says, "the Universe has your back".
4. Problems and set backs occur. Everything happens with Divine purpose. When things don't happen it is the Universe's way of guiding us in a different direction. Sometimes the things that seem like a big pain are really a blessing in disguise.
5. It feels right. Nothing is more powerful than your intuition. Another way the Universe speaks to us is through our internal compass or instincts. It may start off as a nagging feeling and grow to something much stronger. But always trust the voice within because it is there to protect you.
It is so important to believe in something bigger than yourself. It can be extremely supportive when you can recognize these signs instead of just dismissing them as pure coincidences. Identifying the signs helps to cultivate the feeling that everything is working for our highest good. If you don't see the messages now, it's okay. It just takes awareness and willingness to receive them.
