Much of the time, working with the Universe has this “love and light” vibe. You might eagerly await signs that tell you good things – like your ex is coming back soon or that you’ll get that new job offer. But it’s equally as important to be aware of common warning signs from the Universe telling you that something isn’t going quite the way you’d like – or worse.
Here are 13 warning signs from the Universe that you should never ignore.
1- When a streetlight goes out
Have you ever been walking down the street at night, minding your business, when suddenly, as you approach a light, it flickers out just above your head?
It’s happened to all of us. And while it might not seem like a big deal, it’s a sign that whatever you were thinking about at the time sent out a strong, energetic frequency.
The streetlight is a physical representation of the energy you were emitting.
In this case, pay attention to what you were thinking of at the time.
This might be a warning that something you’re not considering could alter the course of your current path.
2- Your phone keeps dying
We’ve all been there – you’re in the middle of a conversation or trying to take a photo, and your battery dies. It’s frustrating, to say the least.
But if this happens more often than usual, it’s a warning sign that you’re not in alignment with your Highest Self.
Your phone represents your connection to others and the outside world.
Sometimes if your battery dies, it’s just a normal occurrence (technology is finicky, after all). But if it happens more frequently than usual – especially if you know you’ve been charging your phone to 100%, yet it drains super fast – it’s a sign that you need to check in with yourself.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- What is it that I’m trying to avoid?
- Who am I trying to disconnect from?
- What am I afraid of?
Your phone dying could be a sign that you’re trying to disconnect from something or someone in your life. It might also be a sign that you’re avoiding something – like a problem.
Or… it could be a warning that you need to disconnect from something or someone that could bring your problems down the line.
3- You always lose your keys
Losing your keys is one thing. But if it feels like you’re constantly misplacing them, it’s a sign that something isn’t quite right.
Your keys represent your ability to move forward and get where you want to go.
If you’re constantly losing them, it might be a sign that you’re feeling lost in your life. It could also be a sign that you’re not entirely sure where you want to go or what you want to do.
Ask yourself these questions if you keep losing your keys:
- What is it that I’m trying to find?
- What am I looking for?
- Where do I want to go?
Your answers will give you clues about what you should be doing next.
4- You break a lot of things
If you’re constantly breaking things – your phone, glasses, or other items – it’s a warning sign that you’re not in full alignment.
Breaking things represents chaos and disharmony in your life.
It might be a warning sign that you’re feeling overwhelmed or like you constantly have to start over.
If you find yourself breaking a lot of things, ask yourself what you need to let go of. What’s no longer serving you? Once you identify what it is, let it go and see if your string of bad luck changes.
5- All the clocks in your house are wrong
Next, if all the clocks in your house are off by different amounts, it’s a sign that you’re out of sync with the Universe.
Clocks represent time, and when they’re all wrong, it’s a warning that you’re not paying attention to the timing of things in your life.
This can signify that you’re procrastinating or that you’re not following your intuition.
If all the clocks in your house are off, take a look at what you’ve been putting off. What’s been nagging at you that you haven’t had the time to do?
Now is the time to start paying attention to your intuition and following those nudges.
6- When your text doesn’t send
Have you ever tried to send a text message only to have it not go through?
Or, worse… When you send a text, it does go through, then you wait for a response, check your phone later, and then you notice that it somehow didn’t go through?
It’s crazy-making, right?
If that happens to you then it’s a warning sign from the Universe that you need to slow down.
Sending a text represents communication.
When your texts don’t go through, it’s a warning sign that you’re not being clear in your communication – either with yourself or with others.
It might be a sign that you’re not quite sure what you want to say or how to say it.
Or, it’s a warning that what you’re saying isn’t fully understood in the right way by the other party.
Keep in mind, that the person you’re texting at that time doesn’t necessarily have to be the target of this warning from the Universe.
The Universe is very symbolic and rarely works directly.
It’s best to view this occurrence as an overall message rather than a specific one.
7- You hear repetitive sounds
If you keep hearing the same sound repeatedly – whether it’s a car horn, a dog barking, or something else – it’s a warning sign from the Universe that you need to pay attention to.
Of course, if you live in a big city and you hear some sounds more than others, that’s to be expected.
But if you find yourself hearing the same sound repeatedly and it’s out of the ordinary, it’s a sign that you need to take notice.
For example, let’s say you live in the country and you keep hearing a rooster crow.
Now, you might live near a farm and hear roosters. But if you don’t live near a farm and you suddenly start hearing a rooster crow every day, that’s a sign.
You need to wake up and pay more attention to events in your life.
Sometimes it’s so easy to run on autopilot with everything in our busy, hectic, and stressful lives.
If you start to hear repetitive sounds and then slow down and become more intentional in life, you will realize there’s something you’ve been missing.
8- Your path is blocked
If you find yourself constantly running into roadblocks, it’s a warning sign from the Universe that you’re going the wrong way.
You might be trying to force something to happen, or you might be trying to take a shortcut.
The truth is if you’re meant to do something or go somewhere, the path will be clear.
There will be no roadblocks.
When you find yourself hitting a dead end, it’s best to retrace your steps and see where you went wrong. It might mean starting over from scratch, but that’s better than continuing to bang your head against a wall.
An example of this is if you’ve been job hunting for months with no luck.
It might be time to take a step back, reassess your goals, and start again.
9- You have déjà vu experiences
Déjà vu is when you experience something that you feel like you’ve already experienced before.
It’s a strong feeling that you’ve been in the same situation or place before, even though you know you haven’t.
Déjà vu experiences are more common than you might think.
In fact, most people experience déjà vu at least once in their lives.
While déjà vu can be a fun experience, it can also be a sign from the Universe.
It might be a warning sign that you need to pay attention to your intuition or gut instinct.
Or, it might be a warning that you’re about to make the same mistake again.
If you have déjà vu, take a moment to pause and reflect on what might be causing it.
There might be a message there for you.
10- Nearly-missed unsafe experiences
This is a big one.
If you find yourself in situations where you almost get hurt but don’t, it’s a warning sign from the Universe that something needs to change.
It might be a sign that you’re not paying attention to your surroundings.
Or, it might be a sign that you’re not taking care of yourself the way you should be.
In other cases, it’s a direct sign that you should not be doing what you’re doing or heading where you’re heading.
If you find yourself in unsafe situations often, it’s time to take a step back and assess what’s going on.
Are you being too reckless? Are you not paying attention? Are you putting yourself in danger unnecessarily?
Whatever the case may be, it’s time to make some changes.
11- Nobody remembers an event, but you do
This one is slightly different, but it’s still a sign from the Universe.
If you find yourself in a situation where nobody remembers an event happening, but you do, it’s a sign that you need to pay attention to your intuition.
Perception is fluid.
What one person experiences through their senses isn’t always exactly what happened.
This is why it’s important to trust your intuition.
If you have a feeling that something is off, even if nobody else remembers it happening, there’s a good chance that you’re right.
12- Your dreams are vivid and repetitive
If you start to have the same dream over and over again, it’s a sign from the Universe that you need to pay attention to the message your subconscious is trying to send you.
Dreams are a way for our subconscious mind to communicate with us.
They can be symbolic or literal.
Either way, they are trying to tell us something.
If you have a repetitive dream, it’s important to try to figure out what it means.
It’s a good idea to start tracking your dreams in a dream journal so that you can more easily decipher their meanings.
Once you understand the message your subconscious is trying to send you, you can take the necessary steps to make the changes you need to make.
13- You see numbers or words often
This is another big one.
If you start seeing the same numbers or words repeatedly, it’s a sign from the Universe that you need to pay attention.
Repetitive angel numbers are very strong signs that the Universe is trying to communicate with you.
Keep in mind that it might be a sign that you’re on the right track.
Or, it might be a warning sign telling you to be careful and that you’re going down the wrong path.
In some cases, it might be a direct message from the Universe telling you what to do next.
If you see repetitive numbers or words, take a moment to pause and reflect on what they might mean.
There is usually a message there for you.
These are just a few of the many warning signs from the Universe that you should never ignore.
If you find yourself experiencing any of these things, it’s important to take a step back and assess what’s going on.
The Universe always speaks to you through signs and symbols, so it’s up to you to pay attention and decipher the message.
In an ideal situation, there would be no symbolism involved, and you could read the message as clearly as a text message on your phone.
But most people do not have a natural ability to decode the hidden messages of the Universe.
Lucky for you, there’s a way for you to boost your abilities!
Yep… it’s true!
If you want to understand better the signs you’re seeing, then don’t forget to get your free numerology reading!
You’ll want to do this sooner than later because the sooner you can learn to decode messages, the sooner you can begin using them to take strong, decisive action in your life.
And that means you can improve or even save your life and livelihood…
