Signs from the universe


Be aware of what is coming your way today, as the universe is constantly giving us hints and clues of the next step to take and where we’re headed. A lot of people are not aware of these subtle signs that is revealed to us all the time so I wanted to create some heightened awareness around this.

First of all; ask for signs! Say out loud or in your mind that you want to experience some clear signs from the universe about where to go, what to do and what to say and to whom that will help you to move towards that which you are wanting in life, and so forth and a wonderful thing you can do also is to, before you go off to sleep, tell your subconscious mind to show you clear pictures of your near future and you will see them in your dreams. Tell your subconscious mind also that you will consciously remember the pictures/feelings when you wake up. It will obey you.

I do this all the time and I love it! It’s so wonderful to be shown what is to come, even if it’s not the whole scenery, you will receive a strong, positive feeling about something good that is coming your way.

Other signs we get from the universe is when we are awake, in our conscious state, going about our lives and living. Suddenly someone we don’t even know says something when we stand in the line in the Deli somewhere that really touches our hearts, we inwardly know that what they said was a private message from the universe to us. Often the messages comes from children too. You know when a child says something that has nothing to do with anything you are talking about and you know it was meant to be heard by you? I’m sure you have experienced something like that, but maybe not taking it seriously enough to understand that it was an important clue.

Other signs are when we suddenly hear a song in our head over and over again that we haven’t heard in ages and it keeps coming back. Next time it happens to you, pay attention to the words in the song..

And sometimes when we turn on the TV or radio someone says something that makes us really feel that the words were meant to be heard by us. Pay close attention to what is being said.

Other signs are when we see the same numbers everywhere. They mean something, and if you ever think “hm..that’s odd, I have seen this same number in many places now” then you should look it up and see what it means. Doreen Virtue is someone I can recommend, I love her work. She works with the angels, and I have learned what the different numbers mean that the angels shows us when they communicate with us from her work.

Here’s the basic meanings of numbers: 0-9

  • 0 – This a message of love from the Creator.
  • 1 – Watch your thoughts and only think about your desires instead of your fears, as you will attract what you’re thinking about.
  • 2 – Keep the faith and don’t give up hope.
  • 3 – Jesus or other ascended masters are with you and helping you.
  • 4 – The angels are assisting you with this situation.
  • 5 – A positive change is coming up for you.
  • 6 – Release any fears about the physical/material world to God and the angels. Balance your thoughts between the material and spiritual.
  • 7 – You’re on the right path, so keep going.
  • 8 – Abundance is coming to you now.
  • 9 – Get to work on your life’s purpose without delay.

The universe communicates with us in numerous ways so pay attention! And you will know with certainty that the message is meant to be heard by you, because you will feel it strongly. You will really feel that it was for your ears and eyes only. If you feel unsure, then it’s not for you.

But if it keeps coming back to you, and something keeps repetitively coming back to your awareness, then ask the universe to clarify for you. I usually say “I feel like this is meant for me, but could you please give me a more clear sign about this? Let it all happen in a harmonious way for all involved. Thank you” and then I let it go, and the clarity comes when I least expect it.

Don’t look for it. Let it come to you by being relaxed about the whole thing.

–Remember that it is in Peace where you can hear the voice of the divine clearly.

  1. Maria, LOVED this! Signs are our roadmaps, I agree 100% thankyou for wording it so beautifully, and asking dream questions is always accurate, the Universe doesn’t lie! 🙂 Namaste, Danielle

  2. Maria Erving says:

    Thank you Danielle – glad it resonated with you:-)

  3. Bernadette Logue says:

    Hi Maria, great to find you online. I love your blog and thought I’d connect given it seems we are very much like minded souls!
    I founded the “Follow The Signals” methodology and social community after awakening to the signals in my own life, and developing an approach to follow those signs to transform my life. I really love connecting with other writers and speakers who work in this space. My book has just hit the Amazon best seller list which I’m super excited about, and I guess it shows how many people are really aware of the existence of signs from the Universe now and how mainstream it is to use these to create the life you really want. I would love to keep in touch with you, and will connect via Twitter and Facebook. Where are you based? I’m in New Zealand and heading to the States later this year for 3-6 months.
    My best wishes to you, and warm regards
    Bernadette Logue

  4. Maria Erving says:

    Hi Bernadette,

    Thank you for commenting, glad you like my blog, it’s always nice to hear.

    I went to your website to see what it is that you do and we don’t have much in common for what I could see. (When it comes to what we share with others).

    The concepts you share about are similar to what I shared about before my spiritual awakening experience, but not anymore. (I used to teach LOA and mind power etc). You must have only read my older posts I guess.

    With the awakening all concepts fell away, they were literally wiped out of my mind, so they don’t resonate with me anymore. (At all).

    I’m not the least into law of attraction, “create the life that you want” and stuff like that.

    I don’t live from that perspective anymore. I don’t even pray anymore. There is only oneness, so to me it makes no sense to “create” anything as Life is living me. (Meaning there is no “me” and “the universe” out there, there is no subject-object relationship as if in there’s a “me” “living a life” because life is me and I am life).

    I think I wrote and published this post (“signs from the universe”) a couple of years ago or so when I was teaching these things, but I’m not into angels or anything anymore.

    Intuition yes, but not like this post describes it.

    Intuition and “signs” are not something I have woken up to like you described yourself to have done, that’s not what I’m talking about at all when it comes to awakening as I have always been very intuitive and aware of ‘signs’.

    It’s just more obvious to me today in a direct way (a moment to moment obvious direction and guidance but not towards something “better” so to speak as this moment is exactly as it should be, there’s nothing wrong and there are no problems), so there is no searching and looking for signs, which would only imply that there’s an “I” (=ego) who is not happy with the present moment and therefor tries to get away from it or “create” something better by looking for signs so to speak.

    The seeking of pleasure and avoiding pain is no longer present in my life, as life is this precise moment and nothing exists outside of the Now moment. (Past and future are all in the mind and not based in Truth).

    At that time in my life, those things (angels and archangels) were very much valid and important in my life and exactly what I needed to experience but as I have said/written about before, waking up is not about “creating” anything, it’s about realizing who we really are, and we are not who we think we are, so thoughts have very little meaning to me nowadays, true reality is beyond thought.

    Intuition and inner knowing-ness goes much deeper than that and has nothing to do with the mind.

    With that said, I wish you a fabulous time in your travelings!

    All the best,

    Greetings from Scandinavia,

    Hi Maria
    So lovely to get your reply. I really enjoyed reading your perspective and where your journey has taken you since that earlier blog, and to better understand. Much of that resonates with me also. I did indeed only see that early Signs From The Universe blog post as it was so relevant for what I have experienced over the years and know to be my truth. I so respect what you shared back with me, so thank you for your authenticity. Sending you my warmest and best wishes,
    B 🙂

  6. Maria Erving says:

    Thank you Bernadette:-)

    It’s kind of interesting for me too to sometimes read my old posts and see how my evolution has progressed so to speak, it’s kind of having a diary online 🙂

    Not really, but I’m sure you know what I mean.

    All the best to you as well,


  7. Bernadette Logue says:

    Indeed! It’s extraordinary to look back on our own evolution and to see how our journeys progress and change over time.
    Have a lovely day over there in the beautiful Scandanavia!
    B 🙂

  8. Maria Erving says:

    Thanks, and you too! Enjoy the day! 🙂

    hi maria
    i have always believed in the signs of universe and made my way according to what i hear from it.but sometimes i feel very confused that what ever i m analysing is correct or not.
    can you share any expierence of yours where you took your decision according to the signs and later you came to know that it was very right.

  10. Maria Erving says:

    Hi Deepika,

    This is an old post of mine and I don’t live from this perspective anymore.

    (I don’t go to my mind for any answers anymore).

    But to answer your questions:

    “… sometimes i feel very confused that what ever i m analysing is correct or not…”

    You’re only confused because you involve your mind into the intuitive knowing.

    You’re basically consulting your mind regarding something it can never know or understand. (Intuition).

    Only the mind (ego) analyses and intuition can’t be analysed. It’s only to be trusted, and the more you do that, the stronger and clearer it gets.

    “…can you share any expierence of yours where you took your decision according to the signs …”

    It’s like this; it’s an ongoing process, like breathing, so I can’t really give you a specific event right now because this is how I live my life and my intuition is very sharp, so the listening to it and responding to it happens automatically all the time.

    It’s not something I turn on and off.

    It’s only the mind that wants to make things mean something, often it’s even compulsively trying to put labels on things, call things for this and that, when in reality it’s all completely irrelevant.

    Numbers are just numbers for example.

    They don’t mean anything else than what your mind makes them into meaning, and there’s no truth to be found in the thinking mind.

    What is relevant is to trust your inner guidance, not what happens outside of you.

    It’s always about your inner response to whatever shows up that is the true guidance, not the “sign” itself.

    Of course I can for example read something, or someone says something that might be a “sign”, but the difference now would be that I don’t involve thinking into the picture; I never go “hmm,.. I wonder if that was a sign..?”, because the moment I do that, I miss the core message (and are basically examining the past, which doesn’t exist) because now I’m consulting the mind and asking it to make something out of the “sign”. So this is not happening with me anymore. Hope that makes sense?

    I never ‘look’ for signs anymore (nor do I ask my mind for guidance etc). The signs just appear in whatever form they appear and the response to them happens naturally and automatically.

    “…where you took your decision according to the signs and later you came to know that it was very right…”

    I make decisions according to what my heart tells me, not any “signs”.

    And yes, sometimes I make the “wrong” decision (that’s a part of being a human), but I don’t call it “wrong”, because even the seemingly ‘wrong’ is actually right as there are always something to learn from so called mistakes too. (There are no mistakes).

    Nothing is either right or wrong, we can’t make any conclusions on anything because we can’t possibly know or see the whole picture.

    Something that may appear as “wrong” usually turns out to be a blessing in disguise later on, and only then do we understand or see what it was all about.

    So I don’t analyse anything. I just acknowledge the hunches and gut-feeling and I act in alignment with them, all in one movement – no mind involved in the process 🙂 It’s purely intuitive and from within.

    What I would suggest to you is to develop (learn to listen to it) your intuition and pay attention to what’s going on within and not so much what’s happening on the surface level of life.

    Here’s a few posts that might be helpful:

    (Some of them might be for members only though, I can’t remember all of them obviously because there are hundreds of articles here on my website:)

    Hope you enjoy!

  11. deepika says:

    thanks a tonne..
    your reply really helped me a lot.
    hope i will also be able to develop my intuition soon.

  12. Maria Erving says:

    You’re so very welcome, hope you find the other articles helpful as well:)

    Always be Here and Now; no need to think about developing it ‘soon’ – it’s always in the present moment that Life is and where you ever have to have your attention.

    Tune into that inner intuitive feeling Right Now – and now, and now, .. That’s all.

    From doing simply that you will become more and more aware and your intuitive muscle will grow (so to speak) 🙂

  13. Maria Erving says:

    Deepika, I was inspired to write an article about this – I just published it – I think you will find it helpful:

    Hope you enjoy the read! 🙂

  14. mari says:

    I’m triying to find out what is going on with me its started about 3 months ago when I would go to sleep I would get images of faces I’m mot fully asleep these faces were each a color blue purple red gold and it was like and out line only but I could clearly see their features they were smiling and peaceful ..calming .I saw the same face for about a week stright everynight when I close my eyes I would see them.
    And then about a week ago an image came to me of a bright purple and blue swirling lights what am I seeing iam aware of the pictures band also I saw people face again just and outline but I can see their features. I want to kmow what I’m going through

  15. Maria Erving says:

    Hi mari,

    The first thing that comes to mind for me is; why not close your eyes, and when they appear simply ask them who they are so to speak.

    Ask intuitively questions like for example;

    -What is this about?

    -Who are you, do you have names?

    -What is the truth about what I’m seeing?

    And so on. Begin with that.

    Sometimes the easiest way is overlooked and we seek answers outside of ourselves 🙂

    The answers always really comes from within us even if the may seem to have a manifestation as something being outside of ourselves.

    No one can give any answers when it comes to the visions we have except for our own inner being.

    If it was a dream (night dream), then sure, there are dream interpreters who can help you understand what you saw, but this was not a dream from what I understood so the only way to find out what it is, is really to ask within.

    And then after you have done your inquiry Life may bring about something or someone from the ‘outside’ that may be able to point you towards more clarity, but it begins with first going within and being attentive to what comes to you in ways of intuitive feelings, and maybe even more clearer visions if that was what you experienced.

    Here’s another article that you might like that has to do with signs from the universe, it’s a more up-to-date article that may be helpful to you:

  16. Kara says:

    Hi Maria

    Why do you think we receive signs? Is the universe trying to tell us that is something we should act upon for our happiness or is it trying to show us what is in store for us in the future?

    I have received constant and very definite signs but circumstance prevents me from following them. I don’t know whether in this case, they are signs for me to follow in the future when circumstances have changed.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Look forward to your response


  17. Maria Erving says:

    The universe, or God/Truth, is speaking to itself all the time, there’s an ongoing communication happening at all times.

    Most people don’t listen to it though, while some do.

    It’s when we follow the signs that we are in harmony with Life. When we follow the intuitive knowing, and the constant signs that we receive along the way, that’s when there can be flow and ease. (Even in the midst of any challenges).

    It’s not always about happiness, sometimes Life shows us what we need to let go of for example, and that can be painful.

    It’s not about following what makes us happy all the time so to speak, but to follow the truth in our hearts, and sometimes (if not always) it leads us into the unknown, so yes, the signs you are receiving may tell you to act and go in a specific direction, and you absolutely should follow what your intuition tells you, but don’t expect everything to be a ‘happy path’; that’s usually what the ego wants, it only wants to ‘feel good’ and that’s not what Life always shows us.

    Life shows us every moment in what direction to go, and it’s up to us to listen to it and act upon it. Sometimes it tells us to stop and do nothing, it’s about becoming sensitive enough to hear it speak, because it always communicates with us.

    I don’t know what signs you are getting, but I would suggest you look into what is stopping you from going forth with the inclinations you get.

    If it’s fear, then screw the fear and get going anyway.

    If it’s an intuitive feeling that it’s a preview of what’s coming but that you are not yet ready to move with it you can communicate to Life that “if I’m not ready yet, then make me!” and be ready for some huge transformations to take place if you were sincere with your prayer.

    In essence, there’s no ‘future’ and only the ego postpones something to when things are convenient and ‘perfect’, so my advice is to follow the intuitive knowing moment to moment, not for some future day or tomorrow or whatever, but Now.

    It’s always now, and the ego would like to have some big, huge, explosive sign that shows exactly where to go and where everything is clear and the path is lit with angelic lights and so on, but Life is in the unknown, and you go there by letting go of fear of making the wrong move and you just go with it, because you can’t go wrong, it’s impossible, and if you listen to your heart you will never go wrong. (You are Life).

    But it will only ever show you one step at a time and sometimes also give some visions for what may come. But we can never know, do we:) We just have to trust and go with it – and throw any fears away, that’s usually the only things that holds us back in any way. Trust life.

    And always; ask and communicate with God, or Life, speak to it with your heart and listen to it. (Meditate, or sit in silence and hear the still voice within).

    The more you do, the clearer it gets and the more you learn to trust it until one day it’s one single movement (life is) and there’s no asking within you whether to go that way or this, you simply go, because the movement of Life is One, and you are That.

    Glad to hear it resonated with you Kara 🙂

  20. Alison says:

    Hi there,

    I also recieved several messages like you have said above. I would often follow my intuition and would meet people. Someone out of no where comes up to me and he says,”You are blessed! God loves you and he is watching you! You are going to be so blessed!” His face showed so much love as if I was his child. He seemed to be so proud and the funny thing was that this was the end of the evening after following my intuition where I let the universe guide me and I ended up at Waldorf Astoria on an empty floor on the 11 floor I believe. I then found myself at a beauitful upscale party and met a special gentleman afterwards for a late glass of champagne. Then this man approaches me at the train station….interesting. 😉

    This evening I was visual meditating and my right hand was vibrating with hot heat and it was tingling. I never experienced anything like that…and my left leg started to vibrate! I saw images and I started to cry with joy! I don’t think I have ever cried with joy like that, that I could recall. What I desire is coming my way, searching for me and he is on his way! I don’t really know what this means but it was such a beautiful and intense expeirence!

  21. Maria Erving says:

    Thank you for sharing Alison! 🙂

    Living in accordance to our intuitive knowing and guidance is really a way of being – an ongoing communication, not something that happens only once in a while – and everybody has this available to themselves.

    It’s a matter of being sensitive and attentive enough and also willing to listen more to the hearts guidance than the ego minds.

    There’s really nothing mystical about it at all.

    Intuition grows the more we acknowledge it and trust it, and honor it, and not try to use it to get something as the ego likes to believe it can control and manipulate life to get its desires fulfilled.

    But still most people listen to their minds because it always gives us reasons and meanings (opinions) to everything, while the hearts speaks a different kind of language and it requires one to have faith and trust in the unknown.

    And that’s one place the ego doesn’t want to go at all! 🙂

    The vibrations and energetic tinglings you experienced is normal, it happens when the body/mind is healing itself, releasing old stuff, realigning itself and so on, and it usually happens when someone begins meditating and doing spiritual work.

    Those kinds of experiences will come and go and sometimes emotional things can come up too after a release of energy when the body/mind is cleansing itself from old stuff that someone may have been carried with them for many years, so anger may come up, sadness etc, but also joy and bliss.

    Sometimes we cry and feel an out-of-this-world-kinda-joy, and we’re even sobbing and doing the whole ugly-cry thing and it’s a very beautiful experience indeed:)

  23. Vishnu says:

    I landed on your page today when I was in a confusion and I am feeling much better now. This means when we search we find. Sometimes we know things but simply forgets and searches for the answer.

    I know the universe gives us signals, not to follow but just to inform us. And when one is in so much harmony with the universe that he/she instantly understands those signals and believes, that universal power/God of which we are a part gives us what we want.
    This is a sign!

    I’m glad to hear you have more clarity now and that you’re ‘back in da flow’ 🙂

  25. She says:

    I have a question. I say a day of birth of person who used to be very special(I think it was my twin flame). I see it almost everywhere. Its 23.10 I never see my date of birth, or other people who are close to,only this one. I dont know what the univerce is trying to tell me. I know that I can´t be with that person because he married someone else year ago. But it´s so confusing. Do you have an idea, what it could mean? Thank you.

  26. Maria Erving says:

    Hello She,

    This is an old article from a time when I believed in Angel number signs.

    Here’s a more recent article that can be helpful to you:

    It basically says that whatever signs you receive is for you only, that there are no static ‘signs’ that applies to everybody’s life experience.

    So there’s no point in asking other people about the signs that you receive because they are for you only, and the only place where you can get accurate guidance on what they can mean for you personally is by going within and ask the Wisdom within you to reveal the true meaning to you.

    Asking others only clouds the Truth because we all have our own points of view and beliefs, so any discussions would only be pure speculation and not really lead to anything enlightening for you.

    So my answer to you would be to challenge your beliefs about the concept of Twin Flames.

    What if is there’s no such thing? I personally don’t believe in those types of concepts, so what is the Truth?

    That’s what you have to find out for yourself and one of the ways is to challenge your own beliefs in this matter.

    Ask yourself what you would make the signs mean if you didn’t believe in the concept of Twin Flames, if you removed that completely for the whole picture.

    What is then left, what’s the story now? What does your mind make it mean?

    That’s what I would suggest you look into more deeply, and also to get really quiet and still and ask within “what is the Truth about this? Show me what is real and true” and then you listen for what comes up for you and then you will know.

    Hope you find the other more recent article helpful as well, here’s the link again:

    Thank you for your information about signs. I have always been asking signs from God and the universe, yes it does give me answers.

When you’re in flow with life you live in harmony with yourself and the universe. This is true oneness.
