6 Signs the Universe May Be Trying to Tell You Something

“We do not create our destiny; we participate in its unfolding. Synchronicity works as a catalyst toward the working out of that destiny.” ~ David Richo

Old wives tales and folklore superstition; signs from the universe have been recognized for centuries and, much like pagan rites and traditions upheld by families on special occasions, we are probably much more knowledgeable about them than we may think.

Much like dream interpretation, signs give us messages from our higher selves, angels or the subconscious to help us on our paths and redirect us if we begin to go too far astray.

There are common meanings that one can become well versed in, although many meanings may be highly personal. Rather than looking for universal meanings, look out for what Roland Barthes calls ‘punctums’ in photography – The wounding, personally touching detail which establishes a direct relationship with the object or person within it – Something which stands out as unusual and meaningful to you.

That said, here are 6 common signs, or categories of signs that usually hold a weight of meaning and could be your angels trying to give you messages you shouldn’t ignore:

1. Animals

The money spider, a flock of birds denoting travel, a snake of healing, or a panther of higher calling lurking in the jungle; animals provide us with literally thousands of meanings, all intertwined and positively complicated. I don’t think it’s as straight forward as seeing a money spider then receiving a check in the mail, but these sightings – or persistent sightings – may signal you need to take action.

Animal Spirit Guides by Steven D Farmer is a good reference if you’re interested in in-depth interpretations of animal sightings, but again it’s good to trust your own hunches. What does a stork at her nest mean to you?

Are you feeling maternal, or perhaps your travels are interfering with your family… do you feel stuck in an awkward place and wish you could break free? Let your intuition be your guide.

2. Illness

As we know, mild illnesses can already be a sign that something greater is at work in the body. They may just be a sign to wake up to how great your life is and stop complaining (think 3-day flus that leave you feeling wretched but grateful and ready for action when they pass), or they may have a deeper significance.

Blocked ears may mean you aren’t listening to yourself and what you already know, styes on an eye may mean you’re not seeing what’s right in front of you. Shortness of breath can mean unexpressed grief but also a rejection of life, constipation can mean you’re unable to let go of something from your past. It might seem funny, but actually if you tune in, you can learn a huge amount from the state of your body.

3. Weather

OK so the weather depends on the climate and location of the area you live in, but signs apply solely to what you keep noticing as you go about your daily business. Keep wanting to look at the stars?

Perhaps you need to have a good long think about an area of your life to gain some clarity. Noticing the sudden rainstorms that keep pummeling down on your roof? Perhaps you’re being too hasty or black and white about something and need to be less direct.

As well as the weather, the stars and the planets have a huge affect on us globally as well as individually, so why not? When you participate in the rising and setting of the sun, you’re sending a message to the universe that you are just that; open to participation and willing to receive guidance and love from higher energies. In this way it becomes a spiritual practice.
