A couple of weeks ago, one of my friends experienced a significant life challenge. As she shared her story with me, she emphasized there were many signs from the Universe of the impending change.

Signs like this are not uncommon — many of us see signs indicating a new direction should be taken in our lives. When we listen, we are guided to a better life.

But, when we don’t listen, if we don't pay attention, life often becomes more difficult.

What happens when we overlook or ignore what these signs from the Universe mean? The transformations become more difficult and suddenly life-altering. It becomes harder to pay attentioin. 

That's why I am sharing, below, ten subtle ways the Universe is trying to guide you and the signs you should look out for.

There was a time in my life that I was doing too much of the wrong thing. My focus was not on my life calling.

I was given many signs that I needed to slow down and turn inward. I ignored the guidance until my physical body was depleted.

I had no choice but to stop everything and rediscover my connection with all that is.

It didn’t take long to get back on track. Happily, my entire life was transformed. I can’t help but think, it would have been easier if I had not fallen off the rails in the first place.

The Universe shares messages with us and our unconscious mind every moment of every day. This means our entire life is a reflection of the conversation with all that is.

Some of the communication styles are gentle reminders and some of the guidance is powerful. Sometimes they will tell you that you are on the right track, other times they are a clear sign that change is necessary (and imminent). 

How adept are you at reading the Universal messages? Remember, the direction might be in your entire life or just one or two areas.

Here are 10 signs from the Universe that can guide you to an easier and more abundant life.

1. You found blocks in your life.

One of the most common signs that indicate you need to pause and change things up are blocks. These are occurrences that prevent you from moving forward in your desired way. They come in many forms.

Sometimes, blocks call for a pause. Other times, the related events are so significant, the outside world seemingly shuts down and you have no option but to turn inward.

No matter how blocks show up in your life, remember to pause, look, and listen.

2. You're losing things.

If you're moving through a time where you are losing friends or jobs, thank the Universe. This might sound funny but the Universe will remove what no longer serves you.

The release of old patterns, thoughts, and beliefs occurs when you let people and identities go.

3. You're inspired.

When you've created room for change in your life, inspiration will come. This may show up as a new creative expression.

It also might be discovering something you want to study or a new place to live. Inspiration brings that excitement for life back into your world.

4. You're making healthy choices.

As you discover an inspired life, you naturally will seek nourishment for your mind, body, and soul with healthy choices.

You may feel pulled to meditate, eat healthily, and live a balanced lifestyle.

5. You're learning something new.

The Universe will bring many teachers and mentors into your life. Sometimes, they are clearly marked as a teacher. For example, Jesus. Other times, your teacher may be disguised as your child, spouse, or coworker.

The teacher will always bring opportunities for self-discovery.

6. You find your soul group.

The Universe will help you manifest your soul group. These are the people in your life whom you feel most aligned with when you are healthy and vibrant.

The key is when you're truly listening, the soul group will find you.

7. You feel a sense of belonging.

Synchronicities are those magical moments the Universe is saying, "You are exactly where you should be."

You've mastered the art of listening.

8. You feel at ease.

You're experiencing ease in your life. It's as if a miracle occurred. No blocks are insight. You feel supported in life.

This is an indication to move forward on your life plans.

9. You feel transformed.

There's always guidance camouflaged by life changes This is what brings transformation.

If the message is not clear, go inward and ask the Universe for clarity. The easiest way to receive clear messages is a consistent meditation practice.

10. You celebrate the good things.

As you gain experience in manifesting with the guidance of the Universe, you will have genuinely good things to celebrate.

You will be rewarded and guided by manifestations and miracles. Take time to share gratitude for the guidance that has brought you to a place worthy of celebration.

When I look at how my life has transformed over the last decade, I’m almost unrecognizable. The truth of the matter is that I had to pause.

It was then that I connected so deeply with the Universe that I experienced every possible way of guidance.

I experienced blocks, letting go, new friends, teachers, miracles, and manifestations. What I'm most grateful for is finding my path and true calling.

I could not have done it alone.

We are guided to completely let go of expectations. This frees us from patterns and blocks that have resided in the futile attempt to control life. In the exhale, we unwind and merge with an experience that holds passion, truth, and all that is.

Faith in creation allows our heart to experience healing. This is where our mind, body, and soul come together and work in unison. This can only be accomplished with trust in the guidance we receive.

This is not an abandonment of self.

When we merge with the Universal energies we are guided to our highest self. What we lose is the notion that there is something to be feared or to be controlled.

The gift of this life is in the free flow of awareness, love, and light.
