Naive or childish as it might be, the truth is, for a lot of us, when we want something we want to have it right away. We don’t want to wait too long or work too hard for good things to come our way, so we often find ourselves looking for signs that what we’re doing is going to lead us to something good, that we’re making the right choice, that it’s all going to be worth it in the end. But the universe isn’t always the most clear or straightforward in its messages to us.
Just a quick disclaimer, though: this article’s primary intention is for providing spiritual and light-hearted content, and it isn’t based on any scientific research. We advise you to always listen to your intuition and do what is right for you.
So, how do you know when you’re about to have a breakthrough? Well, here are 6 signs that good things are coming your way:
1. You feel a sense of excitement.
Have you been feeling happy for no reason lately? Or feeling a sense of eager anticipation about something? As you wake up each day, you feel excited about all the possibilities before you and suddenly grateful just to be alive. You are more appreciative of all the little things and simple pleasures you never used to notice before, and you can’t help but feel like things are starting to look up for you. Trust that feeling and it will no doubt lead you to bigger and better things in life!
2. You feel more at ease with everything.
Aside from the feeling of excitement, you’ve also been feeling very relaxed, calm, and more at ease with everything lately, though you might not be sure why. You just suddenly feel more centered and more at peace with your life. You have a quiet confidence about you, and you feel secure in the knowledge that what’s meant for you will find you. You’re not anxious anymore; you’re not worried about things you can’t control; and you don’t feel any pressure to pick up your pace, compete with other people, or desperately chase after things like you used to. That’s as sure a sign as any that the Universe has something great in store for you!
3. It’s easier for you to let things go.
You used to be the kind of person who let even the smallest of setbacks or inconveniences stress you out, but now? Now you know better than to sweat the small stuff (and you’re realizing that maybe, it’s all small stuff!). You are becoming less reactive and more proactive, taking charge of your own emotions and not wasting your energy on things that don’t deserve it. You don’t hold grudges anymore; you don’t feel bitter or resentful of other people; you find it easier to forgive and forget and just laugh things off.
4. You notice more of what you want.
Have you ever wished for anything and then started seeing more of it everywhere you went? Let’s say you’re thinking about getting a new dog, for example. You start to notice there are actually a lot of dogs in the park you pass by on your walk home. You run into a lot of cute and friendly dogs when you go to cafes, go for a jog, or go grocery shopping. Your friends might ask you to dog-sit for them for a few days, or come with them to the pound to help them pick out a new pet. When this happens to you, don’t dismiss those things as mere coincidence – that’s a sign that the Universe has heard your wish and is working to grant it to you sometime soon! Which brings us to our next point…
5. Stepping stones appear before you.
Similar to the last point we mentioned, when there is something you really want and you put your wish out into the Universe, you know it’s going to come true when you suddenly see opportunities for you to get it! Hoping to get into a good university? Your school guidance counselor suddenly wants to see you and talk to you about your college application. Want to move to a new city? You might just get the chance, when you see an ad for a good, well-paying job there. Been dying to talk to your crush and maybe shoot your shot? Hey, looks like they’re going to a party later and asked if you were coming, too. See what we mean? When opportunity comes knocking at your door, be sure to listen or you might miss it!
6. You experience adversity.
Finally, but perhaps most importantly, if you are encountering a lot of pushback and adversity in your life right now and wishing from a breakthrough, you should take that as a sign that things are only going to get better from here on out! Think of these adversities not as burdens, but as opportunities for growth and positive change. Most people let challenges stop them in their path discourage them from pursuing what they really want, but if you persevere in spite of all these hurdles, then you’ll surely reap the rewards.
So, do you relate to any of the signs we’ve mentioned here? Do you believe that good things are coming your way sometime soon?
