8 Spiritual Signs Your Ex Is Never Coming Back (& How To Fix It)

This is a guide of spiritual signs that your ex is never coming back, and how to cope if you decide this is the case for you.

First, I know it’s tough to believe that the person you love with all your heart will not come back.

You want signs from the universe that maybe he will return.

You’ve tried manifesting rituals and taken the advice of well-meaning friends, but it seems like the more you try, the farther away he gets.

More than anything you just want him to come back.

I’m so sorry if this sounds harsh, but there are some things in life we cannot control.

Getting our hopes up for something that may not happen isn’t good for us or those around us.

Sometimes — usually, in fact — there is some hope that your ex will come back.

But you can spin your wheels looking for signs that he’s coming back while completely avoiding the sad reality that he isn’t.

And I don’t want you to go that route!

So, here are signs from the universe that your ex is never coming back, and some help for what to do next.


1- Negative love angel numbers

The first sign from the universe that your ex probably isn’t coming back is negative angel numbers.

If you’re not sure what that means, it’s time to learn!

Generally speaking, just like with other divination methods, there really are no truly positive or negative answers.

Everything depends on the question asked, the spiritual elements surrounding it, and the intention.

However, when it comes to manifesting love, there are good angel numbers for love that you can look forward to receiving.

Even more specifically, there are angel numbers that show your ex is coming back.

Angel numbers 2 and 6, and angel numbers that break single digits down into 2’s and 6’s tend to lean more positive. While numbers like 5 and 7 tend to be negative.

So if you receive 222 or 33 when manifesting your ex back, it’s probably a good sign.

But if you get 5, 7, or even 212, you can take it as a sign that your ex isn’t coming back anytime soon.


2- You have nightmares about them

The next spiritual sign that your relationship with your ex is likely not going anywhere good is if you have bad dreams.

Much of the time when you dream of your ex every night, the spiritual meaning can be good.

If you’re having good dreams, it can be a sign that your manifestation is working and your ex is coming back.

Good dreams are also signs from the universe that you and your ex are meant to be together, that you’re twin flames or soul mates.

But you can’t ignore nightmares!

If you have nightmares that you and your ex are arguing a lot, or that you are physically losing them through death or injury, it could be a spiritual sign that your relationship is permanently damaged or severed.

While not a 100% certainty (there could be other reasons for bad dreams like watching a scary movie before bed), don’t rule it out.

It could definitely be a sign.


3- You see them with their new partner

Running into your specific person out in public just by chance can be a spiritual sign that you are meant to be.

However, the universe will often have you run into them in public while they are with someone new if you’re not meant to be.

It’s the same energy, just with blockages or complications.

When they are available and open to you, you might see them at a party and they are alone.

Even if you don’t interact with them, that energy is open and free. They aren’t yet bound to someone new in that case.

But if you run into them multiple times and each time they are occupied with someone new, particularly if they look happy, it’s a sign from the universe that there is no space or openness to reconnecting with you.


4- You know intuitively

Sometimes the universe sends spiritual signs directly through your intuition.

Through your spirit!

We spend so much time looking outward for signs and signals, but really sometimes don’t you just know in your gut what the answer is?

I know sometimes we want to avoid the truth because it can hurt.

We want to cling to hope.

But if you feel like your ex is NEVER coming back, it’s time to accept that and move on.

This can be the biggest spiritual sign of all!

The Universe doesn’t want us to waste our energy waiting for someone who will never return. It wants us to live a happy life with love in it.

So take a deep breath. Put a hand over your heart.

And ask yourself for inner knowing.

Is your ex coming back to you?

Take note of any sensations you experience, whether physical or emotional.

Your intuition is usually right.

You can bypass it all you want but it will always be there.

Keep in mind that you can still get a positive answer! The point of saying all of this is not to convince you that you know your ex isn’t coming back.

It’s to get you to at least ask yourself the question and allow whatever intuitive messages or hits to come through.

You very well might get an answer that feels like “yes”, and if so — good for you!

Keep an open mind and heart, for sure!


5- Tarot cards

Next, even if you never intend to do actual tarot card readings, I think everybody who has an interest in the law of attraction and manifestation should own a tarot deck.

If you’re working with the energy of the universe, you’ve already got one foot through the door!

You might as well commit!

All you would need to do is get your deck (I recommend the Rider-Waite deck, as it is rich in symbolism).

Ask a question out loud “is my ex coming back to me?”

Pull a card, and see how the image makes you feel.

You don’t need to even look up the meaning of the card (unless you want to!)

The purpose isn’t to do a card reading. It’s to let any messages flow through your intuition through the symbolism in the cards.

The universe will tell you exactly what you need to know through the tarot, and you can learn it in minutes.

There are no right or wrong answers.

That’s the beauty of using tarot as a divination tool for yourself!

What does the image mean to you? How does it make you feel?

Tarot is probably one of the best methods of checking up on your manifestations, but most people think they need to have someone else do it for them.

You don’t!

It’s so good to pull cards for yourself just to stay on top of what the universe is trying to tell you!

Buy a Rider-Waite tarot deck and get answers for yourself.


6- Things break

A glaringly obvious spiritual sign that your ex isn’t coming back is that objects related to them start to break, fall, or tear.

If your ex gifted you a potted plant that you keep in your window sill, and that pot randomly falls and breaks. That’s 100% a spiritual sign that the relationship is broken and damaged.

Or, if you have a photo of them or the two of you together and it randomly falls off the wall or off the table. That’s another sign.

One sign that you two are meant to be is if you swear you’ve given back all of their things, then you randomly find something of theirs in a place where it wasn’t there before.

Well, if this same thing happens but you find something of theirs and it’s ripped, stained, broken, or damaged — it probably means you’re not meant to be and they likely aren’t coming back.


7- They are bound to another

Another spiritual message about your ex probably not returning to you is if they are spiritually bound or have soul ties to someone else.

Sometimes you already know this. Like if you got with them when they were fresh out of a relationship with someone else. Especially if they were dumped before they got to you, and you are a rebound relationship.

If you two break up and you know they still have a strong attachment to someone else, you can feel this. This is a spiritual sign that they probably won’t come back. And if they do come back — it won’t be the type of relationship you desire.

Another spiritual sign is if a child is involved.

If your ex has left the relationship and has since created a child with a new person, it could be a spiritual sign that there is a bond elsewhere.

So yes, this is a complication in the real world, obviously.

But on a spiritual level, new life is a new bond. And if that bond is not with you, you can’t ignore that.

It doesn’t always mean your ex isn’t coming back. But much of the time it does.


8- They have a history of hopping relationships

Last but not least, if your ex has a history of cheating hopping from relationship to relationship, this is a sign of spiritual immaturity.

They have more growing to do to get to your level.

This does not mean they are a bad person, but if they are your soul mate, they have yet to learn the lessons they need to get where they need to be to commit.

If they were with someone else, then broke that off to come to you, then broke that off to be with someone new, they are a “wandering spirit” at this time.

You could wait for them to grow more on a spiritual level.

If you believe they are your soul mate, you can wait and see.

But for now, that wandering spirit is going to continue to wander, and you’ll be wasting your time if you don’t move on with your life. At least for now.


Final thoughts

I know it can be hard to accept if you do determine that your ex isn’t coming back. But sometimes you just have to accept what the Universe is telling you!

In some cases, you can turn things around. 

You’ll have to use your intuition to determine whether you should wait for them or move on. 

Be sure to take your time and make decisions that are best for you.

Good luck! 🤞🏽

With love, light, and most of all — magic,
