Signs from the universe that you are on the right path often come as a synchronicity – a chance encounter with someone, an unexpected phone call, seeing a number everywhere or even a dream.
Seeing signs from the universe that you are on the right path can be very reassuring. Doubt and uncertainty on the other hand, can quite literally destroy your dreams.
Doubt and uncertainty keeps you from taking the actions and making the decisions that will move you towards your dreams.
If you are on this spiritual path then you most likely have some destination in mind. There is something you want to change in your life, something you want to overcome or something you want to have or achieve.
This implies that you are trying to bring into your experience something that is not present already.
Your present circumstances, whether you are okay with it or even if you hate it, is what your mind is familiar with.
It is safe and feels comforting.
Consciously you might want change but your subconscious mind will put up a massive fight to prevent you from changing. It wants to stay safe.
This is where conflict often arises. You want to change and manifest something in your life and you may even feel inspired and motivated.
Then the conscious mind and the ego step in.
You start doubting yourself. You start getting down on yourself.
The liberating truth is that you are a co-creator of your life. The universe (or God or spirit) is always standing ready to help you, guide you and show you the fastest, most joyful and the most fulfilling path for YOU to take to manifest the life you truly desire.
It is not really about “getting” guidance from the universe as much as it is about “listening” and acting on your intuition.
What Is The Universe Trying To Tell Me?
You have the intention to attract wealth and abundance. Immediately your mind starts figuring it out (that is its job). You start thinking about winning the lottery, miraculously getting some job or even a long lost uncle who left you a fortune.
While these things could happen, they most likely won’t.
If you are truly working with the universe then your path will be truly unique because everything about you and your intention is unique.
Do not underestimate the power of the universe and the power of the law of attraction. This is the power that creates worlds.
When I read about and listen to law of attraction stories it almost always blows my mind. The extent to which creative intelligence can organize events and circumstances are truly amazing.
Intuition is the whisper of the soul.– Jiddu Krishnamurti
You can never predict it – and neither should you. In fact, if you do you will try and forge your own path.
When you try and make things happen yourself instead of surrendering to the universe then you will start seeing signs to support your conscious decisions.
That is not guidance from the universe.
That is your ego at work. Desperately trying to wrestle back control.
You need to learn how to distinguish between the universe telling you something and you trying to tell it what your path ought to be.
Your intuition is how God or the universe communicates with you. Your intellect observes with your senses. Your intuition observes with your feelings.
Intuition is a very powerful thing, more powerful than intellect, in my opinion.– Steve Jobs
You can always gauge whether something is a sign from the universe or a fabrication by your intellect by how you feel.
Your intuition is usually something that comes to you in a split second. It is that initial thought that enters your mind before the intellect can get hold of it.
It usually comes with a jolt of inspiration or excitement. Sometimes it can be a bit scary but it still FEELS GOOD when it comes to you.
Developing your intuition is a skill and something you need to practice to really get good at. Most of us are so well “trained” at listening only to the intellect that the intuition is finding it hard to be heard.
Nonetheless, your intuition will find a way to guide you but only if you ask it and only if you are willing to be guided.
What Are These Signs From The Universe That You Are On The Right Path?
If you are spending your days actively looking for a sign from the universe around every corner then you will probably only end up fabricating signs.
When you do get a sign from the universe it usually comes completely unexpected and it usually lets you recognize it as a sign when it does come “out of the blue”.
If you are desperate to have something happen in a certain way, then your mind will start seeing signs to support that everywhere.
To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders– Lao Tzu
You need to learn how to discern between a sign from the universe and a sign that your mind manufactured to support its own agenda.
So, how do you ensure that the signs you receive are indeed from the universe?
You can simply ask the universe for a sign.
Dear God/universe/spirit, show me the way. I ask for a sign to guide me and show me the way. It is my intention to _____ . I ask that you will give me a sign to choose the path that is the fastest, most joyous and most harmonious. I also ask that you will help me to instantly recognise this sign.
After asking the universe for a sign, step back and “forget” about it.
Don’t try and find signs.
Just go about your day and trust that a sign will show up.
7 Signs From The Universe That You Are On The Right Path
1. An Accident, a Loss or a Disappointment
Most people get depressed when ‘bad’ things happen and they fail to see how it is actually offering them a direction on their life path.
When something like this happens, become interested and ask the universe “what is this trying to tell me? What is the lesson here?”
Every accident, setback, disaster, personal trauma or even just a big problem carries a great lesson. Adversity is not a punishment. It is a blessing and is often your greatest teacher.
2. An Unexpected Good Fortune
Getting “lucky” or having something amazing happening unexpectedly can be a great sign that you are on the right path.
What most people think of as luck is nothing more than things aligning perfectly in your life. We do not live in a random universe and nothing happens by chance.
3. The Right People Show Up
When you run into someone you haven’t seen for 10 years, it can immediately bring up memories or experiences. Maybe they say something to you or remind you of something you have forgotten.
Maybe this person themselves is the sign. The universe use people more than anything else to carry messages. Pay attention to who comes into your life and pay attention to what they are saying.
4. A New Perception
Perception is everything. It is the filter through which you create meaning in your life. A changed perception always translates to a changed life.
When you start to notice something very acutely that would previously have gone completely unnoticed your perception starts to shift. You gain new insights and your awareness changes.
You get in the same elevator that you use every day but for the first time, you actually notice the music. You notice a song playing and it has a very clear message to you.
You can do and experience the same things but you have a new perception. You notice something new, you see something different and (maybe) for the first time ever you gain an understanding and an insight.
5. You See Numbers or Symbols Repeating
This is very common and many people see the numbers 111 or 1111 appearing everywhere. Some see a certain symbol repeating and appearing everywhere while others keep hearing the same song everywhere.
Repeating numbers is a synchronicity and there are many different meanings to different numbers repeating.
Seeing 1111 repeating everywhere is commonly understood to be the numbers that symbolize you are on the right path.
6. The Right Teachers Show Up
There is an old saying that when the student is ready the teacher will appear. When some new teacher (or teaching) shows up in your life it is usually there to offer you guidance.
It may seem weird. It may be something that you would never have noticed or even considered before yet it shows up very powerfully in your life.
Years ago this happened to me with Neale Donal Walsh’s Conversations With God Books. I started seeing them everywhere. Some random person handed me one on the street one day. Still I ignored it and tossed it away.
For weeks it just kept on coming to me until I eventually gave in. Those books changed my life in so many ways.
7. You Experience Inner Peace
Inner peace is your own inner compass that guides you and tells you whether you are on course or off course. learning to read this inner compass called inner peace requires some practice.
When you learn to be still and to truly listen to your inner self you are able to discern more accurately whether you are experiencing inner peace or not.
At any given moment of your life your inner peace can guide you and tell you whether you are on the right path or not.
What Does a Sign From The Universe Look Like?
Your signs from the universe that you are on the right path will be unique to you. Most of the time, if it is something that you expect or look for then it is not really a sign from the universe.
Always go to your feelings and trust your intuition to offer you the distinction.
Your inner being knows the difference. You and only you will be able to tell the difference between a sign from the universe and some random event that simply goes unnoticed.
Random everyday experiences can be incredibly important signs and you will know the difference in the way you feel. Louise Hay called called this inner signal the ‘inner ding’ – it is as if a little alarm bell rings in your mind when these signs show up.
Here are some common signs from the universe that you are on the right path – is not really specific but more general things that tend to happen when you are truly listening and paying attention to your intuition.
Signs From The Universe & Trusting Your Intuition
We all have guidance available to us all the time. The real question is not whether you are guided or not. The real question is whether you can perceive the guidance and whether you actually listen.
