If you’re new to learning how to manifest and communicate with the universe, or you’re feeling sceptical and aren’t quite convinced that this is something for you, here are 5 signs that the Universe may be sending you, so that you can start listening and stop dismissing these moments as pure coincidence.

Words by YK Daily's resident life coach Amira Mansour @the_communicationexpert

I’m a huge believer that there’s a higher power, whether you believe in God, the Universe, Spirit Guides or something else. I’m also a believer that when you’re able to acknowledge this, you also realise that you’re able to trust your journey, the pain, the learnings and accept that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be. To know that you’re being supported and guided, particularly when life gets tough or feels pretty magical, taking some of the pressure off you, when you think you have to do it all yourself!

The way you communicate with the universe matters because you’re doing it every single day, whether you realise it or not. But it’s a two way street, so learning to listen to the Universe is just as important as asking for guidance. Think of it as a conversation with your friend, who has your back and wants the best for you, that’s exactly what the Universe wants for you. Although, like with your friends, everyone is different and has their own communication style, even the Universe is no different.

They key is understanding the language of the Universe, because when you do, your life will grow in a truly different way. As I’ve said already, it’s different for everyone. Let me give you an example. Some people have a sign that constantly occurs in their life, it could be seeing butterflies which reminds them of their late parent or grandparent, giving them a nudge that they’re watching over them. Or perhaps for you, you see recurring numbers such 444, 111 or 222, this may happen when you check the time, a receipt, or even the number on your WhatsApp or IG notifications. Or perhaps, if you’re like me, you get a whole entire library of different signs. You’re an individual so rather than checking to see if there’s a blueprint that works for everyone, it’s about understanding your relationship with the Universe and what works for you.

There is however one thing I would like you to know. The Universe isn’t there to just give you the good stuff; sometimes it’s going to want to give you a heads up about a situation or person, (yes I’m looking at you when you’re thinking of going back to your toxic ex,) or to give you clarity when you feel unsure. So just because you’re hearing the same song on repeat that reminds you of your ex, it doesn’t mean you’re meant to be together, it’s the Universe’s way of getting you to listen. The more you become aware of the signs the Universe is sending you, the focus then shifts to asking yourself what does this mean, what’s good for you, what’s serving you, and learning to trust yourself to make a decision that works for you.

So yes, the Universe is going to serve you some painful lessons too, but it’s always for the highest good. It’s to help you learn, to help you see something you couldn’t, to learn to let go of someone or to give you a nudge onto the path you’re meant to be on. If you’ve known me for a while, you know that one of the signs I received came to me on the day I launched my business. At the time, I was in a full time corporate role, and the idea was to transition into self employed life once I had built the business up. But the Universe had other plans.

On the same day I launched, I found out I was being made redundant without any warning. This had a financial impact and as a new entrepreneur came with a whole host of other worries. The Universe was creating space in my life, in order for me to build the business I truly wanted. That’s exactly what happened. So whilst the lessons can be painful, they’re usually necessary!

Sometimes the Universe will send you all of the signs you’ve been asking for but you might not be truly ready to listen. It’s in these moments that a level of honesty is needed with yourself. Are you willing to do something differently for example, as you have to truly want to seek out the answers before you’re able to receive them, and the more you get to know yourself on a deeper level, the more you’ll be able to create a dialogue with the universe.

Let’s look at some of the ways the universe could be communicating with you, because they’ll probably happen in your everyday life, rather than a moment that stops you in your tracks and is out of the ordinary!


It can take some work to decipher what your dreams mean because it won’t always be in the literal sense. If this is new for you, a great way to start tuning into your dreams is to keep a diary. This allows you to come back to them and see if you notice any patterns over time.


These are the moments that you may not even notice at first, or you dismiss as pure coincidence. How many times can you think of a situation where you’ve thought of someone and then bumped into them? Or the moments the right person or situation comes into your life exactly when you needed it? Think of these moments as nudges from the Universe to show you’re on the right path, so keep going!


You’re going to keep on experiencing something until you take note. It’s the Universe’s way of saying ‘hey I need you to look at this a little bit closer’. Take a look at what’s going on at a subconscious level. Maybe the song you keep hearing is because the lyrics are giving you a message that you need to hear right now, or the recurring dream is showing you something that needs your attention.

Delays & Obstacles

When there’s something in your way or you’re faced with a delay, meaning things aren’t going your way, this is your time to rethink what you’re doing, or a decision you’ve made. The universe could be getting you to slow down or to learn how to let go of the things you can’t control. Or maybe it’ll give you the time to reassess what you’re doing, only to realise you didn’t really want to be doing it in the first place! Either way, it’s going to be a good thing even if it doesn’t feel like it in the moment.

Stuck In Your Mind

Is it a dream that’s left you confused or on edge? Or maybe it’s a song that you can’t get out of your head? Or perhaps it’s an image that you keep visualising. Take note because this is your nudge to dig a little deeper so you can understand the meaning. Maybe you’ve been searching for an answer to something that’s left you unsettled. If you’re open to receiving the message, the answer may just be in the thing you can’t get out of your head.

Communicating with the universe means keeping an open mind and heart so you can receive these messages. The more you do, the more your life is going to feel enriched and pretty special! So start by noticing what signs you’re getting so you can work on understanding exactly what the Universe is saying to you!
