Have you ever felt the universe was trying to communicate with you?

That somehow, it was sending you a message? If so, you’re not alone.

Many believe the universe communicates constantly, but that we need to be open to receive its messages. How does the universe communicate?

Through People

The universe sends messages through the people around us. For example, meeting someone with the same name as a deceased loved one or bumping into an old friend when you least expect it. Many believe these meetings are not accidents or coincidences, but happen for a reason. Regardless of whether these meetings are a test, lesson, or confirmation of our path, one thing is certain—we should pay attention.

Recurring Experiences/Déjà vu

The universe messages through recurring experiences. Déjà vu is one of the most common. Some believe it gives us a glimpse into our past and future lives or that it’s a message from our higher selves. There are many interpretations. If you’re seeing the same number sequence, hearing a certain song, or repeating a dream, again, pay attention.

Number Patterns

Some believe the universe can message through number patterns. You might see repeated patterns, like 11:11 or 222. For example, you might keep seeing the number 7 pop up in your life. Maybe you’ll see it on license plates, street signs, or clocks. Or, you might keep getting $7 in change when you go to the store. If a pattern really stands out, look into what it symbolizes.


Music is a powerful messaging tool of the universe. Lyrics often carry hidden meanings which are subject to multiple interpretations. The messages can be personal, relate to our situation, or general life lessons.

Pay attention to what you hear on the radio, in stores, or on TV. See if they stand out or can be interpreted in a way that applies to your life. You may be surprised at their accuracy.

Unexpected Meetings

Notice the people you bump into or sit next to. There’s no such thing as coincidence. Running into or seeing the same person repeatedly could mean they’re a messenger or signify a message. Pay attention to what they’re wearing, including any symbols on their clothing.

Ringing in the Ears

Ringing in the ears can be a wake-up call from your higher self or spirit guides prompting you to take notice. It could be a warning to stay away from a person or a situation or a signal you’re about to receive important information. If you start hearing ringing in your ears out of the blue, pay attention to what’s going on in your life at that time.

Gut Feelings

Gut feelings can come in the form of a hunch or uneasy feeling. That sense in your stomach tells you something isn’t right, even when everything appears otherwise. Your intuition is warning you to pay attention.

Gut feelings are often right. Our subconscious picks up on things we miss consciously. Hunches are something worth listening to.

If you’ve experienced any of these messages from the universe let me know in the comments below. I’d love to hear your experiences and what resonated with you. Even if you haven’t had such experiences, I hope this has opened your mind to new ways of looking at life and how interconnected everything is.

Stay open-minded and keep an eye out for those little nudges; they could change your life.
