Every one of us has intuitive powers that can help guide us on the right path through life. You often hear people tell stories of how they listened to their gut feeling and it kept them out of danger, or it put them at the right place at the right time. These little messages can be very subtle and hard to figure out at times. Sometimes they might just be a really small gut feeling to a strong “knowing” that something just feels off.

Your intuition is similar to a muscle, and the more you work at developing and trusting it, the stronger it becomes. Having this tool as your guide is a very powerful thing to have.

Below is a list of 7 signs from your higher self that should pay attention to.

1.When You Have A Feeling That Something Just Isn’t Right

You know in your gut when something doesn’t feel right. You may not know what exactly is wrong but trust your gut. For example, you might be supposed to go somewhere and had been looking forward to it, but your gut is telling you it’s not a good idea, you should listen. You don’t know what situation your higher being is saving you from. If someone is telling you something and on the surface, it seems real, but your gut feeling is telling you something is off, trust this. Our intuitive guidance is such a blessing to have, it is a built-in bullshit detector. Trust your higher self, believe beyond what you can see.

2. A Little Voice Whispering Messages To You

Just to be clear, I’m not talking voices inside your head that “crazy” people might hear all the time. I’m talking intuitive whispers from your higher being offering help and suggestions in your times of need. Sometimes we can hear or feel little messages or snippets of wisdom to help steer us in the right direction. These can be the voice of your spirit guides, angels or ascended masters, etc, For example, you might be ready to cross a street and don’t see a car coming and you hear a strong voice in your head say “No” and this stops you in your tracks just in time.

3. Seeing Signs Of Alignment

When you are on your spiritual journey and living with conscious awareness, signs of alignment are continuously been shown to you from the Universe. These signs and synchronicities can be messages from your higher being to let you know you are on the right path. These can be for example constantly seeing number sequences like 11:11, 2:22 and so on.

When we have something we wish or a strong intention for something in our hearts and we are shown signs from the Universe but ignore them, we build up an energetic resistance. We far to often put our own needs last, because we put our kids first, or there isn’t enough money and so many other reasons why we can’t follow our dreams. When we willfully reject signs of alignment because of our “excuses”, it is a wrong way of thinking. Follow the white rabbit when you see it. When we stop living fearfully and start living to our full potential our soul expands and grows in miraculous ways.

4. Recurring Dreams and Experiencing Recurring Synchronicities

Do you have the same dream over and over? Or see the same person everywhere you go? When we notice these kinds of energetic patterns in life and are aware of them, there is normally a reason. It’s is usually a message, a sign or an instruction, in some cases a warning. It’s your job to follow these clues and use your instinct to try and make sense of this information that is been shown to you regularly. Look for the meaning in any recurring signs.

5. Your Needs Are Not Being Met In A Relationship

If you are in a relationship that deep down you know isn’t right and you do not attempt to acknowledge or sort out the problems, you are dishonoring yourself at a soul level. When you avoid using your voice to speak up about the issues, the Universe tends to help pick up the pace to help you with your spiritual lessons and speak for you. You are worthy and you deserve to have your needs met. You deserve to be loved and treated in a way that makes you feel great and glow. If you find you are in a relationship where your needs are not being met, take it as a sign that some transformations need to happen. A decision needs to be made one way or the other, either to stay and speak up or leave, before the decision is made for you.

6. Thoughts That Don’t Make Much Sense

Have you ever had an unfounded thought about someone, like a dark secret that didn’t make any sense why you would be thinking this? Then this dark secret was brought to light and your intuition was proven right. This can be a tricky area, as sometimes following these thoughts could lead us to judge people unfairly.

The trick is to not follow these hunches if they are fear-based. For example, you might have a fear your partner is cheating on you and it’s just based on your insecurities. And if you are constantly checking their phone for evidence, you can create the experience just by your lack of trust. However, if you just get an out of the blue random thought about someone or a situation, just leave it so and allow it to be. Send them or the situation loving thoughts and let it play out as it supposed to.

7. You shouldn’t Ignore Persistent Health Issues And Hope They Will Go

You might have a slightly annoying cough, but it won’t go away. Or a mole that changes color, or a lump that doesn’t cause you pain. Whatever it may be. you shouldn’t ignore these symptoms that are been shown to you. Like everything else in life, our bodies work the same way, when we ignore problems they only get bigger until we decide to do something about them. It’s important to pay attention to the feedback you get from your body.
