Understanding the universe and interpreting the random signs it tends to throw your way seems kind of impossible, doesn’t it?
As human beings, we tend to chalk a lot of weird incidents in our lives up to coincidence. Some of us don’t appreciate the fact that there are things that are out of our control. It can be scary to think you’re at the whim of something you can’t really fathom. But what if I told you that the universe is actually benevolent? Okay, you’re probably thinking that I have no proof to back up that assumption, and you’re right. But it is proven that life doesn’t get any better when you assume everything is against you. So, why not assume everything is for you instead?
You might not be able to control everything in your life, but you can control your attitude. A positive mindset opens your mind and your heart up to understanding subtle signs that you might have missed while you were harping on everything that was wrong with your life. So, before you continue reading this post, close your eyes and take a deep breath, shake off whatever emotions are weighing you down today, and think of something that makes you smile. You should hold on to that positive feeling while you read and after you finish reading. It’s not too late to turn a bad day into a good day!
The universe is our friend, and it wants us to succeed in life. That’s why it sends us signs! But sometimes, we get so caught up in our own day-to-day lives that we end up missing a lot of those life-changing signs. For those of us that value the ongoing adventure of our lives and are always looking for our next personal endeavor, it’s a huge loss when we miss our window of opportunity. That’s why I put together this list of things I notice whenever I think the universe is screaming at me.
Signs Appear When You’re Too Comfortable
This might be a little tough to swallow, but you don’t experience fulfillment by lying in bed all day. Trust me, I have tried on multiple occasions. The results are always extremely underwhelming. Why? Because if you’re too comfortable, you won’t feel motivated to push yourself. The universe knows this. That’s why it sends you signs when you don’t think you need them. It is intimately aware of the person you wish to be, and when it knows you’re not taking the necessary steps to become that person, it tries to get your attention. It might shake up that easygoing life of yours. You might bomb a test you studied hard for, come down with a really bad flu, or even lose someone dear to you. All of those possibilities suck, don’t they? But it helps to think of them as reminders that the world will never put itself on pause for you. If there’s something you want, you have to work for it.
You Don’t Get A Sign Whenever You Ask For It
I’m sure everyone is familiar with one of those scenes in a show or movie where the protagonist is standing alone in the middle of a crowd or in the pouring rain. You see them lift their arms high in the sky before shouting, “Just give me a sign!” You know what I’m talking about. While that stuff might look artistic on the big screen, it looks a little odd in real life. I haven’t ever tried to scream at nothing before, so I can’t really speak on the effectiveness of that method. But hey, whatever floats your boat! Whether you’re a screamer or a silent wisher, just because you ask for a sign doesn’t mean you’ll get it immediately. So don’t sit around waiting after you make a wish for it to be granted right away. Make your wish and let it go so that it can manifest into something real.
Don’t Spend Too Much Time Trying To Interpret a Sign
Once you’re aware of the fact that you received a sign from the universe, you’ve only got a brief window of time to act on it. Think about it. It’s like your friend trying to nudge you over to that person you like. If you wait too long, they’ll go their own way, probably date someone else, get married and start a family with someone that’s not you. Isn’t that tragic? That’s why you’ve got to be courageous and go for those opportunities the universe puts in front of you! It might be anxiety-inducing and exhausting sometimes, but the outcome is always worth it. Even if you end up failing, you still grew from the experience, and it’s made you stronger. That’s what matters the most when you’re dealing with something as unpredictable as the universe: growth.
Don’t fall into the mentality that your life will always be boring or awful because you’ll only stop yourself from achieving your dreams. Try your best to keep an open mind, even when you’re feeling depressed, overwhelmed, or unmotivated. You’ll know in your heart when the universe is calling you to step outside of your comfort zone. It’ll be scary, of course, but it will also be worth it.
