The universe does its best to give us signs and communicate with us. These signs come in all shapes and sizes. Today I want to share with you the three ways that I feel the universe gets in touch with me the most.
This way of the universe sending messages became very clear to me last year when I was in a bit of a rut. I was in the middle of a spell of depression when I started seeing hawks like crazy. I wrote a post about this around the time that it started happening. You can read that post here.
Basically, I started seeing hawks in places that hawks didn't normally frequent. I ended up looking into it more and discovered that hawks are actually my spirit animals. These birds were signs from the universe that were trying to tell me to look at the bigger picture and not focus so much on the issues that were crippling me.
The universe often sends animals as signs when we need them most. What better way to communicate than sending a little friend your way? A spirit animal can change over time and can be literally anything.
Maybe you see butterflies a lot or a certain type of bird (like me!) The universe is trying to connect you to other creatures that can lead you in the direction that you're supposed to be going.

Dreams are the perfect way for the universe to connect with you. They're the one time during the day that your subconscious can come through clearly and give you signs and messages without the extra chatter of your conscious brain.
It's important to keep track of your dreams and the messages that they're trying to convey. Keeping a dream journal can be very helpful.
If a particular dream stands out to you, write it out in full detail as soon as you can. Then go through and start dissecting the portions of your dream that you feel are significant. I've learned so much about my fears and insecurities all while snoozing away.
There's plenty of sites that can help you interpret your dreams. It's also good to notice how your dream makes you feel and what your initial reaction is to it. While someone can tell you what the normal signs and messages are in a dream, only you can determine what it truly means.

Your gut feeling. It hardly ever steers your wrong. This is the little light within you that gives you that feeling of something being wrong or right. It's the voice within that gives you little hints and insights into your daily life.
Your intuition is your subconscious connecting to the spiritual world and giving you the answers that you're in need of. It's good to always take your intuition into account.
You'll know your intuition is trying to give you insight when you get those strong feelings - the thoughts that come in that you just can't shake.
Careful not to mistake intuition for an overactive brain. A lot of times we overthink scenarios and assume it must be intuition. This isn't always the case. Sometimes our minds just get the best of us and situations snowball. It can be difficult to see the difference between the two, but just know that your intuition comes from within and doesn't always originate in your brain.
INtuition comes from within.
The universe will try and communicate in many more ways than this if you let it. You definitely have to be receptive to the signs in order to receive them. When you see or feel something that is out of the ordinary, try focusing on it a little harder. It may just be the universe trying to give you some insight!
An open mind will be more welcoming of the little messages that we're being sent daily.
