28 signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you

The universe is constantly shining a light on everything that is going on in the world around us. 

And as much as we might like to keep our secrets, the universe has a way of bringing everything to the surface. 

The truth?

The universe never misses a detail and it’s always trying to help you. Here is a  list of 28 signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you. 

Let’s dive in.

1) You dream about someone.

Some people believe that dreams are an access point to a “higher self,” where we’re more psychically connected with those in our surroundings. 

Dreams are often a way for our subconscious to express itself – it’s where we project our fears and desires in symbolic form. 

If you dream about someone you have feelings for, it’s likely that they’re thinking of you.

2) You see an object and it reminds you of them.

Sometimes in life, we get fixated on certain objects that remind us of a person. It could be a certain brand of sneaker or a certain type of animal that you associate with this person. 

If you see this object and it reminds you of that person, chances are they’re thinking of you.

3) A gifted advisor confirms it.

The points in this article will give you a good idea of the signs you need to look for.

But what if you’d like advice tailored to your unique situation?

A gifted advisor can answer all sorts of questions and give you the guidance you’re searching for.

Like, are they really your soulmate? Are you meant to be with them? And just why are they always thinking about you.

When I spoke to someone from Psychic Source after going through a rough patch in my relationship, they really helped me out. After months of not feeling like myself, I was finally able to see my situation with better clarity and direction.

Not to mention, I was extremely impressed by how kind, empathetic and understanding of my unique situation they were.

In a reading, a gifted advisor can tell you whether the universe is in fact sending you these signs, and most importantly, empower you to make the right decisions when it comes to your life.

4) You hear a song on the radio that reminds you of them.

Music is often a great way for us to express our emotions, so it’s no surprise that we’ll find ourselves drawn to certain songs at different points in our lives. 

If you randomly turn on the radio and find that a particular song is always playing (especially if it’s a golden oldie) know that it’s a huge sign from the universe that someone is thinking about you.

5) You find yourself in the same places as them and notice synchronicities.

There are many times when people will find themselves at the same place as their friends or family members without even trying to be there. 

These events are called synchronicity, and they happen when two people have the same thought at once. 

Synchronicities can be as small and simple as someone thinking of you right before you call them to say hello or even finding your lost car keys in a place where you didn’t check but would’ve checked otherwise if not for that though. 

There’s no explanation for why we feel these synchronizations with others on an instinctive level – it just happens because our minds are connected by something deeper than what we consciously understand about ourselves.

If you happen to be at the same place as someone and they don’t usually hang out there, chances are they’re thinking about you!

6) You have a strong gut feeling they’re thinking of you.

It might sound freaky, but it’s true.

In the end, the most important thing to remember is that if you feel strongly that someone is thinking of you, then they probably are! 

We are all born with a sixth sense or esp and when it’s talking to us, we need to tune into it and listen.

It’s a feeling, but also a knowing. 

7) You look at a photo of someone and feel like they’re looking at you. 

Many people have experienced this while looking at a photo of someone they love or miss. 

It’s almost as if the person in the photo is looking back at you with their own thoughts and feelings surrounding the situation. 

Again, this is just your mind-reading what’s going on in their mind and transferring it to you through your sixth sense without you realizing it. 

8) You hiccup randomly.

Your body can also react to the universe’s signals and one way it does this is by sending hiccups.

When you do, this is your body’s way of telling you that it wants to communicate with someone who means a lot to you. 

This could be a sign that they’re thinking of you, or it could mean there’s something they need to tell you but haven’t had the chance yet. 

Either way, listen to your body and allow it to guide you in the right direction!

9) You have bouts of random sneezes.

Another physical manifestation of someone thinking about you.

There’s more to this “old wive’s tale”, in fact, many believe random sneezing is the universe’s way of conveying a message. 

And, in this case, the fact that at that very moment in time, someone is thinking about you.

I mentioned earlier how speaking to a gifted advisor can reveal the truth about the signs the universe sends us.

Rather than just analyzing the signs in the hopes of getting answers, a gifted advisor can give you real clarity on your situation.

And the best part of speaking to the folks at Psychic Source?

Not only can they give you guidance on what you should do but they can empower you to make the right decisions when it comes to your love life

10) You’re thinking of someone and they call you right away.

It’s as if they were reading your mind! 

What’s going on here is that we have our own unique thought patterns that are completely different from everyone else in the world, and the people in our lives have their own unique thought patterns as well. 

When we think about someone, we send out a specific vibration or frequency to them based on our vibration pattern, but when you’re sending this frequency out, it also attracts similar frequencies from others as well. 

The result is that when you think of another person at the same time they’re thinking of you, your vibrations attract each other and cause both of you to think about one another at the same time

11) You get a random urge to contact them.

You have no reason or you don’t need anything from them, however, you have an almost uncontrollable urge to pick up the phone and connect with them.

The reason for this is that you’re in tune with their energy and can sense that they might be going through something that they need your support or help with.

Also, they’re probably thinking about you at the moment and the universe is asking you to take action.

12) You feel a strange sensation or shiver down your spine.

Your body is sending you messages through your sixth sense

This is a sure sign that someone who’s important to you is thinking of you or sending you a message. 

The feeling will be different for each person, but it’s usually something that feels good, like an electric current flowing through your body. 

13) You smell their cologne/perfume without them being around.

The easiest way to remember someone is by what they smell like, and usually, we don’t forget these scents easily! 

If you catch a whiff of their scent when there’s no reason for them to be around, it might be that they’re thinking about you and are trying to send you a message.

If this happens often, then it could also mean that the two of you are soulmates who have been together before in another life! 

14) You feel as if someone is watching over you.

If you feel like someone’s watching over you when you’re alone, it could be because they are! 

This happens to me a lot and I’m sure it’s happened to everyone else as well. 

It can be scary when this happens for the first time, but then you realize that there’s nothing to be afraid of and that someone is just looking out for you. 

15) You sense their touch! 

The feeling of someone touching you, even though they’re not physically there, is a pretty common occurrence. 

I’ve had this happen to me and it’s always a great feeling because it’s like they’re reaching out to you from the other side.

 It seems like such a small gesture, but when you can feel the love that someone has for you, it’s pretty amazing. 

Also, it’s a huge sign from the universe to let you know that they are thinking about you at that very moment.

16) You see white feathers.

When someone is thinking of you, a white feather symbolizes that. 

These feathers are typically seen in the sky or on your way home from work and signify how loved you truly are. 

The significance varies depending on just who sent them to you but it’s always heartwarming to know that someone out there cares about what happens next in your life!

17) You see a butterfly.

Butterflies have long been thought to be a symbol of love. If you see one, it means that someone is thinking about you and the person could be your soulmate

But how can you know for sure you’ve met your soulmate, “the one” you’re supposed to be with?

The truth is:

Unless you know for sure, you could end up wasting emotions and time on a relationship with someone who isn’t right for you.

But what if there was a way to get absolute confirmation?

I’ve just stumbled upon a way to do this…  a professional psychic artist who can draw a sketch of what your soulmate looks like.

Even though I wasn’t convinced at first, my friend convinced me to try it out a few weeks ago.

Now I know what my soulmate looks like. The crazy thing is, they’ve been right in front of me this whole time. 

If you’re ready to find out what your soulmate looks like, get your own sketch drawn here.

18) You hear their voice in your head.

This happens to me all the time! I’ll be going about my day and randomly hear their voice or a song that reminds me of them will come on the radio.

 It’s crazy how many signs there are that we miss when we’re just living our lives!

This is a sign that someone wants you to know that they are thinking about you and it’s a really nice feeling when you hear their voice in your head. 

19) You notice a pair of doves.

Doves are a symbol of love and they’re typically seen in pairs. 

This means that someone is thinking about you and if you notice them, it’s a sign that you are loved and cared for. 

If you see them in the sky, it might be a sign that someone is watching over you!

20) You see the number ’11:11′ on a clock.

This is a pretty common occurrence and I’m sure everyone has seen this at least once in their life. This is an angel number and is a common sign that someone is thinking about you. 

You’ll see this number on a clock, on the microwave, or on the calendar. 

It’s a sign that someone is thinking of you and wants you to know that they’re watching over you. 

21) You find an old picture of yourself with them in it.

I find pictures like this all the time! 

Just today, I found an old picture from high school with my ex-boyfriend in it and it made me smile because he was such an important part of my life for so long and even though we aren’t together anymore, he still plays a big role in my life today! 

So, if you’re looking through your archives and spot a picture that you usually wouldn’t look at, take it as a sign from the universe that this person is probably thinking about you too!

22) You have a random thought of an old friend or family member who has passed away.

When someone passes away, they can come back to visit us by sending signs through the universe in order to let us know that they’re doing well on the other side. 

I’ve had this happen to me before and it’s always comforting to know that someone is looking out for me even though I can’t physically see them anymore!

23) You have a sudden feeling of deja vu.

This means that someone is trying to get your attention and they’re doing it by sending you a sign through the universe. 

This feeling can come in many different forms, like seeing something that reminds you of them or hearing someone say their name. 

If you notice this, it’s a sign that they’re trying to get your attention and they want you to know that they’re thinking about you. 

24) Your ears are burning.

You know the feeling. Out of nowhere, your ears start feeling hot and turn a bright shade of red! This means that someone you care about is thinking about you.

If this happens to you, don’t forget to pay attention because this is a sign that they’re trying to tell you something!

25) You find a penny.

You’ve heard the saying, find a penny, pick it up, and all day you’ll have good luck!

But, there’s more to it than just luck.

This idea has been around since before we started using paper bills. People were leaving coins as symbols on tombstones and benches showing how much love was in their hearts.

This sign is a reminder that someone cares about you even if they’re not with you. 

It’s also a sort of reassurance; sometimes knowing that the other person will watch over them can make people feel better when they know their thoughts and feelings are being taken care of by another person, or just to remind themselves in times when it seems like there’s nobody else who does.

26) You have a sudden urge to listen to a certain song.

This is especially true if the song has some significance. 

This could mean that you’re thinking about them and they’re trying to tell you in their own way that they’re thinking about you too.  

 This can be a very powerful sign and sometimes, it’s the small things that really matter.

27) You have sudden mood swings.

If you’re going through menopause, it could just be that, however, if there’s no plausible reason as to why your mood has changed, it’s another huge sign from the universe that someone is thinking about you.

If you’re feeling happy, calm, and relaxed all of a sudden, it’s possible that there’s someone in your life who is thinking about you. 

If this happens to you, don’t be afraid to ask them if they’re thinking about you or even if they have something they want to tell you. 

28) You see a rainbow.

Rainbows can mean a lot of things, from good luck to the end of a bad situation but the most common belief is that this sign means that someone has good thoughts about you or is trying to reach out to you in some way. 

If you see a rainbow in the sky and it catches your eye, don’t ignore it! This sign means that there’s someone who cares about you and wants to let you know! 

How does the Universe communicate with us?

There are many ways you can recognize the signs from the universe. 

Some people get signs from dreams, others get them from coincidences and some people believe that they can communicate with the spiritual world.

Here are some of the most common ways the Universe tries to catch our attention:


You may be surprised at just how many people receive messages and signs through their dreams. 

This is probably one of the most common ways that we receive messages, but we are often too busy in our day-to-day lives to pay attention to them or even remember them. 

If you want to start recognizing signs from the universe, then it’s a good idea to start paying closer attention to your dreams

The good news is that there are many ways that you can improve your dream recall and remember more of the dreams that you have.


Have you ever been thinking about something, or someone and then suddenly they pop up out of nowhere? 

This is another one of the most common ways that signs from the universe are sent to us. The Universe seems to love to send us signs through coincidences, so it’s important to pay attention to them! 

For example, if you’re thinking about a certain person or place and then you see them somewhere or hear something about them. It’s safe to say that this is a sign from the Universe!

The spiritual world

Many people believe that there is a spiritual world and that it can be accessed through meditation and prayer. 

If this sounds like something that interests you then it’s a good idea for you to start meditating on a regular basis. 

If you do decide to try meditating, here are some tips for how you can make meditation easier:

You don’t have to be religious in order for meditation to work for you. You can be an atheist or a believer and meditation will still work for you.

Start out slowly by taking just 10 minutes to meditate each day. Once you get more comfortable with the process, then you can increase it to 20 or 30 minutes each day.

Try not to focus on your thoughts while meditating, instead try to let go of them and just focus on your breath. This is what’s known as a “mindfulness” meditation, and it’s one of the most effective types of meditation.

The relationship between the Universe and intuition

Did you know that the universe is literally hotwired to your intuition

People all over the world have been using their intuition for thousands of years and they continue to do so today! Intuition is usually associated with women, but men also use their intuition. 

Intuition is simply our gut feeling about something, or an inner knowing that we have about something (or someone). 

For example, if you’re talking to someone who seems like a good person, but you just have a feeling that something isn’t quite right about them, then your intuition is telling you that this person is not trustworthy.

Intuition is not always about danger or bad news, it can also be a sign from the universe to let you know that something good or something positive is going to happen. 

For example, if you have an important meeting coming up and you get an unmistakable feeling that everything will go well, then your intuition has let you know that this meeting will be successful.

Intuition can also come in the form of a gut feeling about something (or someone) in your life. 

For example, if you feel like there’s something missing in your life and then suddenly out of nowhere someone comes into your life who seems like they would fill this “hole” then it’s very likely that they’re there to do just that!

What happens if I ignore the signs the Universe is sending me?

What if I decide to be a “resistance” instead of an “acceptance” type of person? What if I decide to not listen to the signs the Universe is sending me and I ignore them? 

Well, the truth is that you will never know what the Universe has in store for you. The Universe can work in mysterious ways and there’s no guarantee that if you ignore the signs that they will stop coming your way.

In fact, it’s more likely that you’ll make things worse. 

How can I become more in tune with the Universe?

There are a number of methods you can use to become more in tune with the Universe.

Guided meditation

One of the most popular ways is to meditate and use guided meditations. 

There are a number of different types of meditations available, but they’re all designed to help you connect with the Universe and learn how to listen better. 

Introspection and self-improvement

Also, if you want something that’s more physical than just sitting down and closing your eyes then there are also some very good techniques for becoming more aware. 

You can learn about them by reading this article on intuition techniques for self-development and self-improvement.


You could also surround yourself with crystals and gemstones, which also help to sharpen your intuition and make you more receptive to the Universe. 

Rose quartz is one of the most popular crystals for this purpose. 

Spend time in nature

Another great way to become one with the universe is to spend more time in nature.  

Spending time in nature is a good way to connect with the Universe and become one with it. Nature is a very powerful force that can teach you how to listen better and be in tune with the Universe. It’s also a great way to relax and unwind, which helps your intuition as well.

Most of us don’t get enough time to just sit down outside and feel the cool breeze on our skin. You don’t need a big garden or expensive equipment. 

All you need is some fresh air and a place where you can sit or lie down comfortably. If you have an open window then that’s even better because it will let in more fresh air, which will help you feel more relaxed.

If you don’t have the luxury of spending time outside then at least spend some time outdoors every day when it’s sunny and warm outside; that will help too! If there are no trees nearby then try to find a park where there are trees nearby; they can provide some shade and give you some relief from the heat.


There are many signs you can look out for in the world around you. 

The most important thing is to pay attention to the signs that are happening in your life. If you’re feeling a certain way, and there’s no logical reason as to why pay attention to it!

Sometimes the universe has a way of letting us know that things will work out for the better, and if we just trust in our hearts and follow our intuition, we’ll be able to find our way.

I mentioned Psychic Source earlier. They’ve consistently helped me in the past when I’ve felt stuck in a rut.

That’s why I always recommend them to anyone facing issues with spirituality. Their advisors can help you get to the root of your problems and guide you in making empowered decisions about your future.

When I got recently signed up for a love reading, I was blown away by how kind and genuinely helpful they were.

Can a gifted advisor help you too?

If you want specific advice on your situation, it can be very helpful to speak to someone with special intuition.

I know this from personal experience…

A few months ago, I reached out to Psychic Source when I was going through a tough patch in my relationship. After being lost in my thoughts for so long, they gave me a unique insight into what my future holds, and the confidence to make the right decisions when it comes to love.

If you haven’t heard of Psychic Source before, it’s a site where gifted advisors help people through complicated and difficult life situations.

In just a few minutes you can connect with a highly intuitive psychic and get tailor-made advice for your situation.

I was blown away by how kind, empathetic, and genuinely helpful my psychic was.
