How to See Signs from the Universe

Signs. The Universe gives them to us constantly and it is up to us to watch and see them.

Tweet: Signs from the Universe offer #confidence and #courage to us and they just might confirm that you are bold and beautiful!
Signs are the Universes answers and they offer support, confidence and courage to us. To See Signs from the Universe is as simple as taking notice. Sometimes, they are as simple as seeing the beauty in a cluster of Black Eyed Susans.

signs from the universe

Fun, Flirty, Charming Flowers


The Universe is giving us signs each and every day ~ all day long. These signs give you answers to questions you have and guide you forward. When you slow down and choose to see them, they will guide you on your journey and help you with your choices.  do you ever question the path you are on or use words such as “Why me?” or “when” or you wonder about the next possible step for you? Of course you do, It’s only human. When your inner chatter starts ramping up and has questions like these, that’s the time to

1. slow down. 2. Create a specific question. and 3. Ask the universe for guidance.

The answer will always come in the form of a sign.   But, you don’t have to have a big question, to ask for a sign for the day or in general, signs will be given to you to create greater confidence and clarity.

How to see signs from the Universe may just make you laugh and giggle when you get good at it.

Recently, I was speaking to a friend about how important it is to maintain a sense of humor and live in-joy no matter the challenge. That humor and joy is a tool that gets you through. Our conversation was liveley and fun, filled with such silliness. We took time out to laugh at our own selves and bring life and our priorities back into perspective.  A day later, I was waiting for a friend outside an office complex. I had some time, so I found this table to create a make shift desk and then saw  the Black Eyed Susans in the picture above. I thought to myself “How Beautiful, Bright and Bold” these flowers were. It was as if they were there just for me and had a message to share. This is how to see a sign from the Universe.

I discovered that black eyed susans symbolize a flair for happiness and have the heart of smiles in them. They are fun, flirty and charming. Indeed, they symbolize a recipe for joy. It was an affirmation that I am on the right track~ I am beautiful, bright and bold (my words to myself when I first saw them) ~ and to continually use the recipe for Joy and Happiness that I’ve created for myself. Yes, these beautiful ladies in the soil gave me exactly the sign the Universe wanted me to know.

Signs come to us all the time. How to see signs from the Universe is as easy as becoming aware and curious. Signs come in all shapes, sizes and colors. A great way to begin to take notice is to continually be asking yourself when you see something “If this were a sign from the Universe, what would it be?”

Have you been able to see a sign from the Universe in your life lately? I’d love to hear about them.

  1. I love this post! I’m always looking for signs from the universe, although mine are often the animals and insects I notice, I hadn’t thought about the plants too, so that’s something else to be on the look-out for. I find spending a bit of time being grateful for having noticed the sign, and indeed for the sign itself, helps to have more experiences like this. My latest one has been an adolescent blackbird that comes right up to me, so close I could reach out and touch her, she seems to be listening to what I’m saying. Recently I saw a slow worm (snake) and when I looked up the meaning it was about transformation and change. Love it all! Cheers. Andrea

  3. Hi Laura,

    Love the snap of your black eyed Susans…my garden is full of them! What I love about my Susans are the visitors she attracts…the bees, the dragonflies, the butterflies, and sometimes green bug things that have small wings 🙂

  4. Peggy Those bees, dragonflies, butterflies and green bugs with small wings must see the same thing in the Black Eyed Susans that I saw this morning~~~ Beauty and full Hearts!!! Keep Smiling 🙂

  5. Love the bright flirty flowers and the advice to slow down, create a specific question and ask the Universe. I am laughing now as I wonder what question I should have ask as a turkey slowed the traffic on I495 this morning! I do now wonder what the Universe was sharing with all on the road this morning?? I thought maybe be safe – but now I bet it was slow down and see the gentle fog dancing on the pond – hard to see at highway speed yet when the turkey slowed traffic to about 10 mph – it was a lovely and delightful bright spot in my morning!

  6. Turkey? On I495 ???? I saw a gaggle of baby geese crossing 495 once…..but only hoped for their safety. Glad the turkey was safe (sounds so if cars were going 10 mph) so you could catch a glance of that pond!!! 🙂 🙂

  7. Laura I love the reminder to ask for guidance and look for signs! Your example of Black Eyed Susans is wonderful because in the Language of Flowers it represents encouragement! I often see birds, especially Wrens as signs from the universe. In the beginning when I did’t pay attention they would fly into the house. Now that is no longer necessary as I grateful receive the wisdom and messages when they show up! Thank you!

  8. OH Kelley ~ That is funny (?) They truly DID want you to see and understand them 😉 Glad you were able to receive such a precious message!!! 🙂

  9. This is wonderful Laura! I’m currently practising this technique right now – looking at whatever signs the Universe is trying to give me. And it helps to remind myself that the Universe is wanting to give me lots of signs!

  10. Yes, Sarada, it’s not only WANTING TO but, indeed, it IS!! Being open to it is what makes the difference!

  11. Laura, my very favorite part of this whole post is one short sentence: “If this were a sign from the Universe, what would it be?” THANK YOU for providing such a simple, powerful, self-fulfilling prophecy that will enable me to more easily see the signs around me. 🙂

  12. You are MOST welcome, Kathleen!!!! It really is such a very valuable tool 🙂

  13. Hearing, feeling, and seeing signs is a big deal for me. I always felt , in a deep down place, that I was guided, BUT I was not very practiced at being aware of it. Since I started journalling on a daily basis, meditating, asking specific questions and allowing space for an answer – I feel so connected and surrounded by loving guidance all the time. It is such a joy! Just for today there were numerous signs… so cool! Thank you so much for this post.

  14. Kudos, Tricia! It does take knowing which awakening tools to use to see the signs…it is a skill and like most skills, practice is necessary to become accomplished at this!!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to post your understandings!!!

    Comment by Laura Clark — August 14, 2014 @ 8:54 am

  15. I’m going to start this practice. I’ve been hearing about it for a while, and your post is a great reminder. Thanks for the tips.
