How to Recognise a Message from the Universe

A feather background representing how to recognise messages from the universe

I often get asked how to spot messages from the universe. It can be confusing as you can receive messages from the universe in so many different ways.

To start with, know that you’re most likely to receive messages via your dominant sense.

If you’re not sure what your dominant sense is, think about the sense that you enjoy the most or the one that is the first to become overwhelmed.

Messages from the universe could come to you via:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

☁️ Day dreams⠀⠀⠀

🎲 Divination
🌳 Images you see in the clouds, trees, art – anywhere really⠀
✍️ Journaling
💬 Overheard conversations⠀
🎶 Music lyrics or song titles
1️⃣1️⃣1️⃣1️⃣ Repeating numbers⠀
🌸 Smells that remind you of something or someone⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


✋ Messages from the universe never:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🛑 Make you feel unnecessarily uncomfortable⠀
😡 Speak badly about you or another person⠀⠀
🤕 Tell you to hurt yourself or another person/creature⠀



TRY THIS:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
➡️➡️ Start your day by asking to receive a message of guidance via the third song you hear today.

The message could then come from the lyrics in the song, the name of the song, the artist or even what you associate with the song. 🎶🎵🎧⠀

You can wait to see what the third song you hear throughout the day is – songs from any source – or you could shuffle your music player and see what comes up for you.


💬 I received a message this morning via a podcast I was listening to. I was just thinking about a question I had about a dream, wondering if the people I met in the dream were my ancestors.

At the exact moment I thought the question, the person on the podcast, which had nothing to do with spirituality or ancestors, said ‘… connecting to your ancestors…’

I simply smiled and said ‘thank you’.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Messages really can come from anywhere!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

✨ Be curious, that’s where the magick is found! ✨

Learn to trust yourself and the messages you receive:


Trust yourself as you develop a clear understanding of how your intuition speaks to you and have confidence to act on it
