The Universe is always sending us spiritual signs and messages. These messages help keep us aligned and on the right path to become the person we want to, need to, and will become. This guidance also helps us overcome blocks, recognize triggers, heal, discover and receive our strongest desires, and become our best selves.
Receiving Universal Signs
Are you seeing the same patterns of numbers, seeing the same animal everywhere, or even having a repeated feeling of déjà vu? Whether it is through recurring experiences, coincidences or reminders, as we become aware of the communication from the Universe, we will see it all around us and discover how truly available these signs are to each of us.
Why It’s Important to Pay Attention
The more we pay attention to all that’s happening around us, the better we are able to use spiritual signs as vehicles for growth, abundance, and alignment with our purpose and highest self. These can present themselves in signs such as:
- Angel numbers
- Things that remind us of loved ones
The more you notice spiritual signs from the Universe, the more signs the Universe will send you. While the Universe sends us messages to become more connected and in touch with our true self that doesn’t mean it’s easy. When we are on our spiritual journey, it is necessary to become aware of and let go of our Ego. But the Ego doesn’t want to be ignored so it will more than likely try to present emotions and triggers that can take you out of sync!
Spiritual Ego Traps
When you begin your spiritual journey, you have an opportunity to let go of your Ego and tap into your Spirit, your intuition, and your understanding of self. By understanding these pitfalls, you may be able to acknowledge when your Ego is reigning its head and redirect yourself back to your center:
- Thinking you have it all figured out. This is a lifelong journey that ebbs and flows, with hills and valleys. As soon as you think you are done, the Universe will come along with a mirror and reveal another layer that needs healing! While it can be frustrating, it is always worth it to become even more connected to Self.
- Thinking you are “good” and others are “evil.” Doing shadow work shows us to see ourselves in everyone we meet. Becoming fake or using your spiritualness to manipulate others, might be your ego stepping in.
- Downplaying the significance of signs. Have you ever ignored something as “just a coincidence” or had a deep feeling resonate with you in meditation but brushed it off thinking “oh, that’s just my imagination?” That’s your ego talking.
To avoid these Ego traps you must stay true to your journey and to yourself. That’s why it is so important to stay authentic and a constant observer of the gifts the Universe sends us. Obstacles may present themselves, but using them as opportunities for growth will allow us to confront our emotions instead of running from them.
