Say you're trying to decide if you should ask your boss for a raise or more flexible hours. And then, when you're on your lunch break, you come across an article about how it's important to be assertive and ask for what you deserve. In big and small ways, the universe will actively encourage us to go after something if it's in our highest good. If you need help noticing these messages, here are some signs to help you discern if you’re being given the go on a relationship, project, healing journey, career change, purchase, moving across the country, or anything else that your journey has in store for you.
When an opportunity seems to come out of the blue.
Have you experienced an opportunity show up in your life out of left field? Humans can forget that we’re not orchestrating everything. Yes, our intentions and actions and attitudes help co-create our reality, but there is also a larger intelligence, which we can call the universe, at work. If an opportunity comes to you and you had almost nothing to do with making it happen, this could be an assist from the universe. You don’t have to say yes, but you should definitely consider it.
You receive an increase in synchronicities.
Carl Jung defined synchronicities as meaningful coincidences. The universe and your spirit guides are constantly sending signs or synchronicities (things that appear random but actually hold deeper meaning) to help you live at your highest potential. Synchronicities are how the universe talks to you directly. You'll often get an intuitive feeling when something is actually a sign. When the universe is giving you a green light, it will significantly ramp up the number of synchronicities you receive.
You're presented with the potential for growth.
The universe loves to send us experiences that will help us grow and change. Have you been considering visiting a loved one you haven’t been super close with for a few years? If you are considering doing something that has the potential for a lot of positive change and growth, the universe is more likely to give you the green light by bringing you grace opportunities to help you find the time, support, or resources to make the experience happen.
Paying closer attention through your intuition.
One way the universe speaks to you is through your intuition. Sometimes the things it tells you will seem inconvenient—like a message that is subtly in yet constantly nudging you to notice it. This is the Universe requesting you to be more conscious of the subtle to gross guidance that it is trying to offer you. It’s a two-way street: when you open your eyes and tap into your intuition, the Universe will continue to offer guidance.
