Have you ever been thinking about someone at exactly the moment they call you?
We are all connected to one another in mysterious ways. What may seem like weird coincidences are often signs and messages that you are on somebody’s mind.
If you’re wondering “is my soulmate thinking about me?”, in this article we reveal 26 strong signs that, yes, they are.
26 signs that tell your soulmate is thinking of you
1) They appear in your dreams
Our dreams are so intriguing and perhaps one of the most interesting aspects is, we still don’t truly understand their power.
In fact, whilst plenty is known generally about the physical function of sleep on our bodies, scientists have yet to agree on the real purpose of dreaming.
Dreaming bridges your unconscious and conscious mind, which is why it is a significant portal for receiving messages. Sometimes we need to try and interpret dream messages, as they may not be clear.
You might be surprised to hear that there are even countless cases of two people sharing the same dream.
If someone appears to you in a dream, particularly if they haven’t even been on your mind a lot, it is a strong sign that this soulmate connection is thinking of you.
You may not recognize the face of the person you have been dreaming of, which could mean your soulmate is coming.
If you notice someone featuring in your dream who feels significant, keep a dream journal by your bed to make notes. You could find clues presenting themselves through your dreams.
2) Weird coincidences and synchronicity
When we are close to another person, we form all sorts of, almost telepathic, bonds.
You certainly don’t even need to be an empath to have experienced the common phenomena of someone popping into your head just before they ring you. In fact, a whopping 80% of the population say this has happened to them.
Or perhaps you suddenly think of someone and they email or message you. Maybe you can sense someone and then turn around to see they are there. These are all signals that suggest this person has been thinking of you too.
There is a growing body of research on telepathy and being able to sense things. Some evidence even suggests it may have biological roots as an extra way of communicating.
If you experience weird coincidences or synchronicities that involve another person, it could be the Universe sending you a sign.
3) You get a sudden urge to be near them
Soul connections are special. These are people who we have a strong tie to.
It’s probably the reason why many mothers claim to know when their child is in trouble or needs them.
Similarly, your soulmate and you are likely to be linked in ways that go beyond words or logic. If you feel a strong yearning to be near them, they are subconsciously calling you in.
That may be because they really need you right now, or simply because you are on their mind and so they are emitting longing energy which you are picking up on.
Some people may even feel a deep yearning for their soulmate before they have even entered their life. This is a sign that they are out there searching for you too.
4) You feel positive energy around you
Even though the world appears in a physical solid form to us, everything around us is actually made up of energy.
So it is not that strange that we can sense energy, both positive and negative around us.
Love is a truly magical force of positivity and you do not need to be physically close to someone in order to feel its effect. It crosses boundaries of time and space.
That means that if your soulmate is thinking of you with this loving energy, you are likely to feel the warmth of this glow from miles away.
Whenever you wake up in a great mood or sense a bubble of protective positive energy surrounding you, it could be because you are on your soulmate’s mind.
5) Sneezing three times in a row
Ok, sneezing is a sign of many things, some of which are perfectly logical — like allergies or sickness.
So if that applies to you, you may want to discount this signal. But if your sneezes are sudden and don’t seem to be triggered by anything in particular, then they may mean more.
In Asian cultures, if your nose begins to itch or you start sneezing it’s long been thought of as a physical sign that someone is thinking of you.
According to traditions, the number of times you sneeze is important. If you only sneeze twice, then someone is thinking about you in a negative way. If you sneeze three times or more though, the person is thinking of you in a loving or positive way.
That means if you find yourself in a sneezing fit, you could be in your soulmate’s thoughts right at that very moment.
6) You see love all around you and everywhere you go
Our perception quite literally creates the world around us. Rather than the Universe being fixed, simply our observations alone alter it.
You are not a passive observer of life, you are a creator. You are constantly bringing things into existence which are then reflected back to you everywhere you go.
If you see signs of love all around, life is reflecting what exists within you back at you — which is why you are more sensitive in noticing it.
Loving sentiments may appear in the songs you hear or the movies you see advertised. You might see affectionate couples on the street or in restaurants and get a warm glow.
Whether you have already met your soulmate or not, this shows that you have opened yourself up to love. Your own soul or your soulmate is preparing you for true love to enter your life.
7) You hear “your song”
Many of us have a song that either reminds us of a particular time or person. Just hearing it transports you there.
If you are a couple, it’s also likely that there is a special song that you too share. Research has shown that 60% of couples do have one.
Music is emotive and promotes social bonding, so it’s no wonder it is one of the ways we communicate with one another.
Maybe you have been thinking about your soulmate all morning and just as you get in the car you turn on the radio and hear “your song” playing.
This is one of those little synchronicities that the Universe gives us to show you that it’s not just you — your soulmate is thinking of you too.
8) They suddenly or randomly come into your mind
If you find yourself constantly thinking about your soulmate, it can be a bit of a chicken and the egg situation. I.e are you thinking of them because they are thinking of you or vice versa?
Thinking of someone all the time certainly could be a sign that they are thinking of you too, but it is harder to tell whose energy is driving it.
But when you find someone who suddenly comes to mind, it is a more obvious sign that they have been thinking about you.
You may be busy doing something, with other thoughts occupying your brain when all of a sudden you see this person in your mind.
In those instances, it is easier to surmise that the energy is coming from them. Because you have a special connection with them, you are picking up on the vibes they are sending out to you.
9) You can feel their touch
Have you ever felt like someone has brushed past you, but you are alone?
The idea that you can physically feel someone when they are not physically there may sound a little freaky at first. But don’t panic, far from being a ghostly phenomenon it all comes down to energy.
Even touch is actually created in our mind through signals being sent to our brain.
If you feel like your soulmate is touching you, then you may be picking up on their potently strong psychic energy towards you which is manifesting in physical ways.
10) Your left eyes twitches
We often need to be more observant to notice subtle signs that the Universe is sending us.
Especially as many of them could have more than one meaning or cause. For example, your eyes twitching may happen when you are particularly tired.
You could also find that your eyes twitch or itch from allergies, bites, irritation, stress, or even diet. But did you know that eyes twitching has also been long held as a superstitious sign that someone is thinking about you?
Although superstitions can seem silly at first glance, some also appear to have truth to them. So, who knows, perhaps this is also a little sign from the Universe.
So how do you know if it could be a sign your soulmate is thinking of you, rather than a sign that you need to get a better night’s sleep?
Apparently, a twitch in your left eye signals that someone is thinking about you in a positive way (perhaps your soulmate?) but in the right eye, someone is throwing bad thoughts your way.
11) You’re beaming ear to ear
Have you ever actually thought about why we smile?
It’s one of those natural things that we (hopefully) do so often, we rarely even think about its meaning.
Even though smiling is often a sign of contentment, it is also just generally a sign of social engagement and even an unconscious reaction.
If you find yourself smiling more often or seemingly for no good reason, it may be because you are reacting to someone else’s energy. This may be a signal that your soulmate is putting out positive vibes by thinking of you, which you are picking up on.
12) Unexplained hiccups
Another one of our physical signs that someone is thinking of you is when you get the hiccups.
On a scientific level, hiccups are created by an involuntary contraction of your diaphragm muscle. It happens when those contractions cause your vocal chords to close very briefly. That’s what creates the noise which is commonly known as a hiccup.
You may experience hiccups after eating too quickly, or even when you’ve had too much to drink and are sobering up. But could random hiccups — seemingly for no reason — mean more?
It may sound strange, but throughout history, hiccups have been seen as a sign that someone is thinking of you. Although, it is more typically seen as a negative sign and that someone is thinking of you unfavourably or bad-mouthing you.
So if you’ve had a recent tiff with your soulmate, they may be letting you know they’re not happy with you right now.
13) They often contact you or check in on you
Not all signs that your soulmate is thinking of you need to be mystical or subtle.
If your soulmate is already in your life, or you are wondering if this person is the one, a huge glaring indication that they care and you are often on their mind is them getting in touch with you.
If you hear from them all the time, it’s most likely because they are thinking about you.
Does a significant other send you texts throughout the day? Do they always comment on or like your social media posts? Do they always call you without fail whenever they can’t be near you?
These are clear signs that you are important to them and one of their main priorities in life.
14) You hear their voice
Hearing someone’s voice isn’t as unusual in certain contexts as you may at first imagine.
Particularly when somebody loses a loved one, they report still hearing their voice as a means of communicating.
These so-called “extraordinary experiences” are not only common (with tens of millions of people saying it has happened to them) they also appear as very real and have a comforting effect.
You may hear your soulmate in your head as a reassuring voice during a stressful or anxious time. This shows that you have a very close bond and that they are sending out strength and encouragement to you.
15) You experience a sudden change in your energy levels
Our entire bodies are almost like sensitive radios which are always tuning into and responding to the frequencies around us. We are energy sponges.
Think about the last time you had to spend time with somebody very negative. Perhaps they are the type of person who always complains or argues. How did you feel when you left their company?
Chances are you felt quite drained and tired.
Negative people tend to zap at our energy, whilst positive people fire us up and energize us. It’s all about the energy that is circulating rather than specifically the person.
If you notice a sudden burst of energy, or an extra buoyancy out of nowhere when your energy levels had been feeling depleted — you soulmate could be fueling you.
16) You get goosebumps
Goosebumps are totally fascinating to me because they don’t actually serve any real purpose to us.
In really hairy animals they are useful as they create an insulating effect and can also scare off predators by making them look bigger from fur standing on end.
Clearly, that’s not the case for humans. Instead, in us goosebumps, usually act as a physical signal to strong emotions.
Goosebumps happen when the tiny muscle located at the base of each hair follicle contracts, causing the hair to stand on end and create that pimple effect on the skin.
It’s involuntary and triggered by a hormone surge.
Ok, so you may get them when you are very cold, but it is also common to get goosebumps when you are scared, shocked, anxious, aroused, and even when you feel inspired.
The strong link between goosebumps and emotional signals is one of the reasons why getting them for no apparent reason could be a sign that someone else’s thoughts are reaching you.

17) Your tarot or angel cards tell you
Using cards as a source of divination most likely dates all the way back to the 14th century.
Tarot is seen as a way of communing between worlds, of receiving answers, messages, guidance, and signs from the spirit world. Whether that spirit is universal energy, consciousness or God depends on your own beliefs.
Personally, when I was younger, I was always a huge skeptic of things like tarot and horoscopes — yet I also hadn’t truly experienced them for myself either.
Once I started to explore tarot, I like many other people who use them, have found the cards can be spookily accurate at reflecting what is going on in life at any particular moment.
How? I guess like many mysteries in this life we may never fully know.
Perhaps it is some form of energy you are tapping into — whether that be from angels and spirits or psychic energy coming from people themselves.
If you directly ask your tarot or angel cards if your soulmate is thinking of you and are told yes, then you have your answer.
18) You find a white feather
For many people, white feathers are a special sign of love.
They are symbolic of the purest angels and bring with them a message of peace, protection, and light. It has long been said that when you find a white feather it is a lost loved one who is looking down on you and sending you a sign.
Although it is a common comforting sign after grief, it also has other spiritual meanings.
They are generally a positive sign and a form of encouragement.
So if you have been thinking about your soulmate or wondering if they are thinking of you — and then you find or see a white feather floating down beside you — see this as a confirmation.
19) They surprise you
Surprises are one of the more literal ways that we will know when we are in our soulmates’ thoughts.
That’s because we only make a significant effort for the most important people in our lives.
Whether they drive a really long way to see you, book a trip for you both, or prepare you a romantic dinner — surprising someone is a sure-fire way of saying “I’m crazy about you”.
So, if an important someone in your life is always full of surprises (in the best kind of way) — know that they are thinking of you often and want to show you how much they care.
20) You feel inspired to work on yourself
A lot of people feel impatient about why their soulmate still hasn’t shown up in their lives.
They feel ready for love and want it now. But there is also a divine timing in life that needs to be honored.
Of course, we will always want all the very best things to come to us now and not have to wait. But we must trust that there is an order to the Universe, even if it doesn’t always make sense to us.
There are steps along the way that must take place before everything can click into place.
That is why when you suddenly feel inspired to get your life totally on track, it could be because your soulmate is about to show up.
This strong desire you are feeling to work on yourself is almost like having a big tidy up or spring clean at home in preparation for a guest.
The Universe is inviting you to get ready.
21) You sense it
Your intuition is a powerful tool.
Although it can feel difficult to define, it is still something that has intrigued philosophers and scientists since ancient times.
In more recent years researchers have also found ways that quantifiably show how these gut feelings play a significant part in our decision making.
Whether you call it an “inner voice” or a “sixth sense”, the truth is that there are far more subtle ways of communicating than just the spoken word. We are very sensitive to signals all around us.
You may second guess yourself or question whether it is all in your imagination — but trust that one of the strongest signs of whether your soulmate is thinking of you is that you just know they are.
You may not be able to explain how you know, but you sense it.
22) You’ve been visualizing them
Do you use visualization to call your desires into your life?
Even if you aren’t totally convinced by the law of attraction — visualization has been scientifically proven as an effective tool that prepares us mentally for things.
We can use visualization to picture how we want life to look, and strengthen the belief that we really can create that vision.
That means we can also create a mental blueprint for our soulmates. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you will have an image of how they look (or you might) but you may have been thinking a lot about and visualizing the qualities of your twin flame, or how they make you feel.
Perhaps during your visualizations, certain traits or specific values keep coming to mind. This could be because you are actually thinking of a real person who exists, but you haven’t met them yet.
You are picking up on a subconscious energetic bond between you as they communicate to you.
23) Things suddenly make sense
Life is like a giant puzzle — all the pieces come together to make an overall picture. But sometimes random pieces on their own can give a distorted view that we don’t understand at the time.
It’s only later when another piece clicks into place that the image is clearer and we suddenly “get it”. It’s one of those a-ha moments.
You could have been left scratching your head, trying to understand certain events from your past — such as painful experiences or broken hearts.
But when you start to understand that all your previous relationships, mistakes, and experiences were important lessons that have brought you here, you are ready to move on.
This new beginning signals that someone is waiting for you.
24) You see butterflies or your spirit animal
Delicate, striking, and often colourful — perhaps it is no surprise that butterflies are seen in many cultures as spiritual creatures who deliver messages.
During a particularly transformative time in my own life, I kept seeing white butterflies everywhere.
I swear that one time when I was out hiking and got lost, one butterfly even guided my back onto the right path.
Maybe I’m being crazy, but I asked for a sign and it promptly appeared, clearly taking one of the two paths in front of me. I followed it and — what do you know — it really was the right way.
Coincidence, maybe. But butterflies will always still feel like special messengers to me.
Particularly as butterflies are said to transmit energy from person to person if one lands on you it is a sign that somebody is thinking about you.
Perhaps you have another significant animal or bird in your life, that means something to you. Similarly, if you see a rare creature or you start to see the same animal often, you may be receiving a sign from someone.
25) You get a shiver down the spine
Much like goosebumps, a shiver down our spine is often a physiological reaction to a strong feeling that we experience.
Even though it can happen when you are extremely cold or unwell, it also happens from an extreme sensation of fright or thrill too.
The hypothalamus which controls this reaction is also connected to our emotions. So, it is a sign that something within you is stirring.
Have you heard the old expression “someone just walked over my grave”?
Although this is very ominous-sounding, the old folklore refers to the sensation of experiencing a shiver as some kind of signal.
But shivers aren’t necessarily bad signs, they are just energetic signals to us. That means you may get shivers when you think about your soulmate, or when they think about you.
26) You feel a sense of peace
Feeling at peace is one of the biggest signs that we are aligned with the source (God, Universal energy, consciousness).
You may experience a calmness wash over you, or like someone has sent healing energy your way. Perhaps you had been getting stressed or upset and then suddenly a feeling of letting go descends — almost like a satisfying exhale.
This may mean that your loved one has been thinking about you and is sending you white light to soothe and reassure you.
If you have been feeling calm and content generally in life, this is also a strong indicator that you are ready for the arrival of your soulmate.
In Summary: 26 signals that your soulmate is thinking about you right now
Maybe you think that your soulmate has come into your life and you are curious if they feel the same way and are thinking of you too.
