Through our eyes, the Universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the Universe is listening to its harmonies. We are the witness through which the Universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence. – Alan Watts
Have you ever had a feeling like the universe is trying to tell you something, but you just don’t understand the message?
Most of people believe that things just happen to them, but closer look to intuition shows that everything that happens to us is of our own creation.
Confusing? Indeed, you might feel this way because you aren’t fully aware of the “language” of the universe. The universe speaks to us all the time. We don’t always recognize the messages or realizations because the universe speaks through different signs and symbols. All we need just to ask for a sign to help us with certain situation or challenge. The Universe will definitely respond to your request, but before you need ask yourself – am I open to receiving the message?
How can you tell whether you’re on the right path?
In general, warning signs from the universe occur in the form of unwanted circumstances and events. But remember that any warning signs from the Universe that you experience are there not to hurt you, but instead, are there to alert you. While these signs can be shocking or alarming, they ultimately arise for our highest good. So be mindful, approach them with humor, and pay attention.
Here are eleven common warning signs from the Universe that are telling you to stop what you’re doing:
1 – Unexpected delays
For example, you might get stuck in traffic, miss your train, find that the flight tickets are booked out, or find that a spontaneous event arises which messes up your plans.
2 – You have heavy feeling in your stomach
You might feel a sense of queasiness or sickness inside of you. This negative gut feeling might not go away, no matter what thoughts you have or plans you make.
3 – Getting sick
Sickness seems to be preventing you from doing what you want to do. You might develop chronic headaches, migraines, colds, or other forms of sickness that demand you to slow down.
4 – You keep loosing things
Either something is stolen from you or you’re misplacing things. The temporary shock of losing something wakes you up.
5 – Sleep disorders
You can’t stop thinking and this is preventing you from falling asleep. You might have a single thought that keeps circling around your mind or a fearful scenario that may be playing out over and over again.
6 – Sudden arguments and fights
Fiery arguments and silly disagreements keep popping up constantly. These arguments might be with your loved ones or with random strangers.
7 – You are more clumsy than usual
You might keep stubbing your toe, bumping your elbow, stumbling, dropping things, etc.
8 – Anxiety or Stress
An inexplicable sense of dread or anxiety seems to follow you wherever you go, as if “something really bad” is about to happen.
9 – Careless accidents
Accidents are often big signs that it’s time to change course immediately. Accidents can be physical or emotional/mental. For example, you might accidentally say something to offend your boss which causes them to stop giving you regular shifts. On the other hand, you might get into a car accident or have a household mishap which causes you to remain crippled in a bed for a few days or weeks.
10 – Forgetfulness
If you find yourself repeatedly losing things or forgetting things, it could be a sign that you need to check in with yourself and perhaps take a moment to get centered and grounded before moving forward. It may also be a sign that you need to get clearer about what it is that you want to create and achieve for your life.
What to do when you receive warning signs for the Universe?
Keep in mind that it is common to experience things such as losing sleep or getting stuck in traffic. Just because you stubbed your toe doesn’t necessarily mean that you are on the wrong path. However, don’t be obsessed over a warning sign, just take it for what it is, a simple “stop sign,” and move on from it.
In case you are experiencing many of these signs from the Universe all at once or consecutively, please pay attention. Ask yourself, “What am I doing, thinking or planning right now which might be opposing my highest good?”
