What Is The Universe Saying When Everything Goes Wrong?

Have you ever felt like everything in your life was going wrong, and you couldn’t understand why?

It can be frustrating and disheartening when things don’t go as planned, but it’s important to remember a few things.

First, life will always have its ups and downs. There’s no escaping that.

But also, understand that the universe might be trying to tell you something.

Here are five things the universe is saying when everything goes wrong in your life.

1- It’s time to change direction

One thing the universe may be saying when everything goes wrong is that it’s time to change course.

Sometimes, the universe will present you with obstacles or setbacks to steer you away from a wrong path that is not meant for you.

If you find yourself constantly running into roadblocks, it may be time to reassess your goals and consider alternative paths.

For example, let’s say you’ve been trying to start your own business, but no matter what you do, you keep hitting financial barriers.

You might think is just a stroke of bad luck – and you might be right… 

However, the universe may be trying to tell you that this business venture isn’t meant for you – at least right now – and you need to go back to the drawing board.


2- The universe is testing your resilience

Another thing the universe may be saying when everything goes wrong is that it’s time to test your resilience.

Life is full of ups and downs, and the universe may be presenting you with challenges to help you build strength and perseverance.

When things are always easy for you, you won’t grow.

Sure you’ll have this boundless enthusiasm for life when things are easy – but there’s much to gain when things are hard too.

If things are always too easy, you’ll stay stuck in your comfort zone and don’t have the opportunity to learn, adapt, and build up your inner strength.

On the other hand, when you face difficulties, you can use them as a platform for growth.

You can learn to problem-solve, better manage your emotions, and come out of tough situations with increased maturity and wisdom.

For example, let’s say you’ve been trying to pass an important exam, but you keep failing.

The universe may be telling you that it’s time to dig deep and put in the hard work to get through it – no matter how difficult the journey might be.


3- You’re learning and growing

Sometimes, when everything goes wrong, the universe may be trying to teach you a lesson or help you grow in some way.

These lessons may be difficult, but they can ultimately lead to personal growth and development.

For example, let’s say you’re struggling in your relationship and can’t seem to make things work. The universe may be trying to teach you important lessons about communication, trust, or forgiveness.

By learning from this experience, you can become a stronger, more self-aware person.

Furthermore, the universe may be trying to show you that the relationship is not right for you.

Sometimes, it takes a difficult situation to help us recognize when something isn’t meant for us – and this is part of learning and growing.


4- Something better is coming

When everything goes wrong, the universe may be preparing you for something better to come into your life.

Sometimes, we must let go of certain things or experiences to make room for new opportunities.

One thing you must understand about the law of attraction and manifestation is that frequently you need to have space for your manifestations to come through.

This isn’t always the case, but some of the time if you already have something filling that space, you won’t be able to manifest something new.

For example, let’s say you’ve been working at a job that you hate for a long time, but you’ve been too afraid to leave.

The writing has been on the wall for a long time that you need to jump ship, but you’re trying to hold off due to fear of the unknown.

I’ve seen this happen with clients before where they are holding on to something negative for them, but as soon as they take the leap and let go, tons of opportunities come rushing in!

It’s a standard case of the universe making way for something better to come into your life.

Sometimes, the only way this can happen is when we let go and allow the universe to do its work.

When everything goes wrong, have faith that something greater is coming your way.

And never stop believing in yourself!


5- You need to take a break

Finally, the universe may tell you it’s time to take a break.

When we’re constantly pushing ourselves and trying to do too much, our bodies begin to suffer.

Our physical and mental health can become compromised, leading to further problems.

It’s not the most pleasant way for the universe to nudge us to take a break, but it works!

For example, let’s say you’ve been burning the midnight oil for weeks working on a project.

You’ve been pushing yourself too hard and your body is begging for a rest, but you just keep going.

Suddenly, you become sick or experience some other physical symptom that forces you to take a break from the project.

In this case, the universe may be telling you that it’s time to step away, regroup, and recharge.

It’s okay to slow down – the universe is giving you a gentle nudge to do what’s best for your health.

Maybe you’ve experienced this before, too, in your life!

Have you ever been working hard on something and you started to feel burnt out, then you took a break for a while, came back, and voila – you nailed it?

This isn’t a coincidence at all!

The universe may be trying to tell you something.

Take a break when you need it – your body will thank you and success will follow!

Allow yourself the time and permission to slow down, rest, reset, and come back stronger than ever.

The universe is always looking out for us in its mysterious way.


Frequently asked questions

Now that you know what the universe may be saying when everything goes wrong, here are some frequently asked questions to help you better understand.


1- How can I make sure I am listening to the universe instead of my own thoughts?

When discerning whether something is your thought or a message from the universe, it’s essential to pay attention to your intuition. The universe communicates with us through our intuition and gut feelings, so usually if your communication comes as a “voice” in your head – it’s you. If it’s through a gut feeling, a dream, or you see other sacred signs and symbols, it’s the universe.


2- What do you do when the universe is against you?

Understand that the universe is never against you. It may not always be giving you what you want, but it always works towards your highest good. So when the universe seems to be against you, take a step back and look for the lesson or blessing in disguise that’s being offered. There’s usually something valuable to learn if you have an open mind and heart to see it.


3- What is it called when you get signs from the universe?

When you get signs from the universe, it’s usually referred to as synchronicity or serendipity. Synchronicity is when seemingly unrelated events happen together and show up in your life in perfect timing and keep showing up until you take notice. Serendipity is when something positive happens that you have no control over – it’s a happy accident or surprise!


Final thoughts

If you’re in a phase of your life where everything seems to be going wrong, first of all, I’m sorry, and I wish you a speedy recovery and upward movement from here on out.

But I encourage you to try to alter your perspective and look at the situation from a different angle.

What’s the universe trying to tell you?

The most important thing is to never give up hope and keep believing in yourself, even when everything around you seems like it’s crumbling down.

Take a step back and open your heart and mind to see what the universe is saying.

You have everything you need to make it through this difficult time – and that’s the truth.

Be gentle with yourself and believe in something bigger than yourself.

The universe always looks out for you, even when everything goes wrong.
