15 Signs From The Universe That Someone Is Thinking Of You

Author: Paul R. Brian

Are you wondering how to know if someone is thinking of you?

Well, assuming you’re not a psychic, it could seem that this is an unanswerable question. 

It's always nice to know someone's thinking of you. And if that person occupies a special place in your heart, your happiness will be even greater. 

The universe continually emits signals to communicate with us, and all we need to do is understand them. One person’s thoughts send out energy waves which we can then intercept if we understand how to read them. 

In fact, there are actually various clear signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you.

I’ll go over them in this article.

#1. Thinking The Same Thoughts

This is one of the most important signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you:

You both think the same thoughts. 

Of course the question is: how would you know if you’re thinking the same thoughts.


When you talk offline and online, you instantly say you were thinking exactly the same thing at the same time. 

This is a huge sign if you ask me. What are the chances two people would be thinking the same thought at the same time?

It’s a spiritual connection and link if there ever was one. In fact, if this is happening it’s almost like there is a kind of telepathic connection between your souls.

#2. Your Eyes Start Going Crazy

A sudden itching or contraction in the eyes suggests that you just went through someone's mind.

This energy that’s emitted by their thoughts is translated into uncontrollable movement of the eye, such as twitching or strong itching that comes out of nowhere. 

This is well-known ancient spiritual wisdom that relates to the eyes being the windows to the soul and often being the first point of contact when the universe transmits energy. 

However, if you have a specific eye disease or allergy, you can certainly disregard this as a sign.

Depending on which eye itches, you can also determine whether positive or negative thoughts about you inhabit this person’s mind, and it's different for men and women.

For example, if a man feels a contraction in his right eye, he can be sure he is being thought of in a positive way, and if it is the left eye, the other person's impression of him is totally negative.

#3. White Feathers Start Showing Up

A white feather is a powerful symbol, particularly in many Native American cultures. 

If you come across a white feather out of the blue, especially more than once, you can be sure that someone special is thinking of you.

It is also believed that a white feather indicates that your angel is taking care of you and wants to see you happy.

Of course, you can’t stand under a flock of seagulls all day and then be inspired when you end up seeing white feathers (and dirty with bird poop). 

But you can get very inspired if you start seeing white feathers in very random places such as on a quiet residential street or a place where there aren’t even any birds you’re aware of. 

This is one of those important signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you.

#4. You Dream Of Them

If you often see the same person in your dreams, it’s another of the top signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you. 

You can document your dreams in a dream journal and you may start to notice a pattern of who shows up in your dreams. 

Pay attention to this as they are likely signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you. 

Write about your dream the moment you wake up before it starts to move away from your mind.

We usually forget dreams if we don’t write about them soon after waking. 

The advantage of writing down dream details is also that after a few days, you can draw patterns and decode what this person is thinking and what it might mean for your life. 

#5. You Randomly Get Chills

Have you ever been on a hot beach in summer and suddenly gotten chills? 

It happened to me three months ago and turned out to be related to someone very special to me who was thinking of me and soon got back in touch!

Getting goose bumps is a physical sensation that reflects that you are in someone's thoughts.

As physical as it is, it certainly also has a strong emotional connection.

Sometimes we all get goose bumps; they can be triggered by an old memory, some exciting news or a long-awaited moment.

If you get goosebumps for no apparent reason, you're probably in someone's thought process, and their energies are being transferred to you.

    #6. A Butterfly Lands On You

    Butterflies are known to have a strong connection with the spirit world.

    In various cultures, they are known to be energy transmitters and respond favorably to positive energy.

    If a butterfly lands on you, it's no mere coincidence, it signals an active telepathic connection and can be one of the top signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you. 

    This is a special sign and it’s also a wonderful experience to have one of these special winged creatures alight on you.

    #7. The Name Begins to Appear

    When someone thinks of you often, this puts a powerful energy out into the universe. 

    If you are receptive enough, you will see the signs very clearly.

    That person's name may begin to appear in the most unlikely places, such as newspapers, magazines, or billboards.

    These are some of the strongest signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you.

    Their name simply starts showing up everywhere!

    #8. You Can Hear Them And Feel Them

    When you create an emotional, almost spiritual bond with someone, that bond goes beyond space and time.

    This may seem funny to some, but you'll hear them and feel them around you when they're not near you.

    When you experience this, you can be sure that you have each other in your thoughts.

    #9. Sudden Sneezing

    If you suddenly start sneezing uncontrollably out of nowhere, this is one of the biggest signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you. 

    This signals that you are nestled in someone's thoughts and they are missing you fondly.

    Obviously, if you have any medical conditions, such as an allergy, you can discount this signal.

    #10. Random Hiccups

    Traditionally, hiccups are associated with someone thinking of you.

    Although hiccups can occur due to natural reasons such as eating or drinking too fast, nerve irritation or certain medications.

    However, if you start hiccupping for no plausible reasons, it's definitely one of the key signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you. 

    It may not exactly be romantic, but it’s definitely noteworthy!

    #11. Unexplained Sensations of Physical Touch

    Any non-physical touch you experience is a powerful sign that you are being remembered by someone with affection.

    This type of contact usually occurs when a person is deeply connected to you.

    The feeling offers a feeling of calm and can be extremely comforting.

    You feel like they’re physically touching or holding you, but there’s nobody there. 

    This is one of the strongest and most reassuring signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you.

    #12. Serendipitous Encounters

    Have you ever come across someone you were thinking about, but haven't seen in a long time?

    Or did you receive a call or text message from them at random right after thinking of them? 

    These meetings, calls, or text messages don't happen accidentally and are intuitive.

    It means your minds are linked and communicating. 

    These kinds of “chance” encounters are some of the top signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you.

    #13. A Massive Energetic And Optimistic Feeling

    When someone thinks of you positively, that vibration is transmitted to you in many ways, and you feel charged with a sudden boost of energy.

    This burst of energy can make you feel optimistic and cheerful.

    This is one of the key signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you and that they are also providing you spiritual abundance and beneficence.

    #14. A Strong Desire to Be Together

    Do you have an intrinsic desire to be with a person that comes out of the blue?

    Maybe it’s someone you haven’t thought of in a long time…

    You must be wondering, why?

    The reason may be the natural magnetic force or the deep connection that is uniting you in the same direction.

    It’s one of the top signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you.

    #15. Smiling and Laughing Without Knowing Why

    There are times when you laugh at really inappropriate times for no reason.

    You try to resist the urge to smile, but still grin from ear to ear.

    These sweet smiles happen when the mind experiences a sudden wave of positivity.

    You can be sure that someone is thinking of you and is trying to connect on a subconscious level.

    Wrapping Up…

    There are plenty of signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you, if you are sensitive and receptive enough to feel them.

    Most people miss the signs because they’re too distracted, busy, or just don’t see the things the universe is asking them to see. Instead, they only see the superficial things in life.

    But the universe is always communicating with us in inexplicable ways, whether we hear and see it or not. If you can tap into these messages, your life will be richer for it - especially your love life.

    Equally important is the fact that being sensitive enough to read the universe’s communications means that you can make better, more attuned decisions in your life!
