10 Signs from the Universe that Someone is Thinking About You

We all want to feel like we’re not alone.

There’s a part of us deep inside that knows we have a deep connection to the world we inhabit. Being separated physically from someone doesn’t mean they exist completely out of our reality. There is a web, a matrix and a field that connects us all on the subtle level.

Our soul is housed in a body that serves as a vehicle of experience for us in this lifetime, but also as an antenna. It’s capable of receiving subtle signs from the universe that someone is thinking about you. All you need to do is to become aware of what they are.

As a soul residing within a human body, we possess latent abilities to intuit one another’s energy that we haven’t yet realised. It might even surprise you to learn we all have a psychic skill set. All you have to do is take a leap of faith and pay attention to the signs.

Here are some of the most common signs someone is thinking about you. They don’t all indicate positive feelings. And some of them may not tell you much in isolation. But they’re no less a part of the bigger picture, and a useful way to hone your intuitive skills.

1. They’re Present in Your Dreamtime

1. They're Present in Your Dreamtime

Dreams are our thought-forms personified as a living enactment while you sleep. And it’s not only possible to share Dreamspace together, but actually quite common. When the conscious mind is in rest, your Higher Self can reach out and receive messages from other souls who want to connect with you.

Those who appear in your dreams may not even be aware that they’ve entered your Dreamtime. We each have infinite expressions of our being that can exist in 1,000’s of locations. It’s possible the avatar being of the person reaching out to you may have no conscious memory of sharing a dream with you. But also that they may have wanted to reach out for some time on the conscious level.

If you’re experiencing the same person entering your dreams frequently, try keeping a dream journal to log your encounters. It’s not always possible – or even appropriate – to ask people if they’ve had the same one as you. It can come off as weird to some. You’ll find you’re able to gain much more accurate information from your dream diary, anyway. It’s a spiritual practice that can teach you a lot about current life circumstances.

2. Burning Sensation in Cheeks

Providing you can’t explain these sensations any other way, such as with the cold in winter or through inflammation, burning cheeks usually indicate someone has been less than complimentary about you. The feeling is very similar to what you’d experience after being slapped in the face.

But not all people manifest this sign the same way. You might not experience the burning physically, and instead, show a lot of redness. When this extends toward the ears, the meaning of this sign can shift from a negative intent to someone having romantic feelings towards you.

3. You’re Empathically Connected to Them and Intuit Their Energy (Emotional Changes)

3. You're Empathically Connected to Them and Intuit Their Energy (Emotional Changes)

Your emotions can be misleading at the best of times, especially if you’re a natural empath. If you are one of those people, you’ll be all too aware when you experience a jolt of sadness or clench of anxiety out of the blue, that these aren’t your feelings.

However, if these pangs keep on arising within you when there is no one else in sight, they could be the thoughts of someone who’s emotionally attached to you. If this is a new experience, it might be a little unsettling and lead to questions about your mental health.

You won’t be able to figure out whether these emotions are your own without getting into touch with your inner being. You need to become aware of your baseline state of mind. From there, you can use it as a guidepost of discernment to either accept or reject those feelings as your own.

4. Hiccups

Getting the hiccups is related to negative and/or toxic energy that’s being directed towards you. When you experience hiccups that can’t be explained physically, it’s usually a sign someone has complained about you quite vocally.

If you’re experiencing hiccups around a certain person, it’s likely that there’s a source of animosity between you that you’re not aware of. You could try tactfully probing to see wat wrong, or even ask friends if there’s anything you should know.

5. They Enter Your Thoughts Out of Nowhere 

5. They Enter Your Thoughts Out of Nowhere 

Have you ever had the image or memory of someone you know repeatedly enter your thoughts? If it’s someone close to you, this may not seem a big deal. But if it’s a person you rarely have contact with, it could be a sign that you’re on their mind.

If this happens to you on a regular basis, try becoming aware of the frequency and patterns that are at play. When you experience these thoughts, it could be a mental cue from the universe that maybe it’s time to reach out to them.

Obviously, this might not always be the action you want to take. If you remember a time with someone who abused you in the past or you had a bad relationship with, talking to this person might not be high on your list of priorities.

What it could mean is that person is thinking about all the pain they’ve caused. It could be a sign that they’re going through a stage of deep remorse. So if you do experience a recurrence of negative, take comfort in the fact that people can change and extend forgiveness if only for your own sake.

6. Spontaneous Bouts of Sneezing

Sneezes and nose twitches have several interpretations depending on how they manifest. When it isn’t brought on by cold or flu-like symptoms, sneezing is thought to mean that someone is missing your company. Some people apply numerology studies to discern who could be thinking about you.

In some Asian countries, for example, it’s said when you sneeze, you should ask someone who’s in your company to give you a 3-digit number. So, let’s say you receive the 456, you would add these together – 4+5+6 =15. That number corresponds to a letter of the alphabet. So, 15 would be O, meaning the name of the person who’s thinking about you begins with that letter.

The number of times you sneeze is also said to indicate what type of thoughts someone is having about you. Two sneezes in quick succession mean that someone is having negative thoughts about you, while three sneezes or more in a row indicate positive thoughts.

7. Shivers, Schisms & Goosebumps

7. Shivers, Schisms & Goosebumps

These physical sensations are harder to connect with someone specific and will need to be coupled with your discernment. But they shouldn’t be discarded as random bodily functions. Schisms are usually a very clear energetic sign that someone has you on their mind.

If they appear out of nowhere and can’t be explained by normal means, it’s likely they’re connected to a thought that’s been directed towards you. There is also a chance that whoever has caused these reactions has some level of psychic awareness and could be attracted to you.

8. Involuntary Eye Spasms

As with all physical cues, you need to be sure what you’re experiencing isn’t a symptom of something that needs medical attention. But if you’re sure you’re in the clear, eye twitches can have multiple interpretations depending on your gender and the eye in question.

It’s widely believed that when the left eye twitches, you’re the subject of someone else’s positive thoughts and intent. But if you feel the same sensations in the right eye, then it means that someone has been putting you down – usually quite badly.

However, that is only true of women. The opposite applies to men with the left eye being a sign of negative intentions and the right showing positive intent from someone. But before you go jumping to conclusions, make sure that you’re not experiencing any allergic reactions.

9. Unexplained Physical Touch

9. Unexplained Physical Touch

The feeling of non-physical touch is possibly the powerful sign of all that you’re in someone’s thoughts. This kind of sensation only occurs when the person thinking about you is either deeply connected with you or has psychic abilities.

This kind of contact can be an extremely soothing and be a reassuring presence. Many people who’ve lost loved ones unexpectedly often report these experiences not long after the person has passed away. Their soul will stay behind to provide comfort before moving onto the spirit world. But it’s also possible for people to create this feeling in their physical bodies.

However, there is always an opposite. And if there is someone who has sufficiently bad intentions towards you that they’re projecting out into the universe, and they manifest the same touch, you may experience it an ominous or negative presence that is invading your personal boundaries.

10. Synchronistic Encounters

Have you ever been thinking about someone and then all of a sudden you receive a phone call from them? Or even, have you had someone on your mind while you’re out shopping – someone you haven’t seen in a long time – and then you bump into them?

These meetings don’t happen by accident. But the fact you’re thinking of someone just before you interact with them isn’t necessarily a direct manifestation. It’s your precognitive and intuitive abilities at play. Of course, that doesn’t mean you weren’t having meaningful thoughts about the person in question.

And conversely, if you can have thoughts about someone before running into them, the same also applies in reverse. The next time you encounter someone you haven’t seen in while the chances are, you may have been on their mind for some time beforehand.

A Final Word on Discernment

Although I’ve mentioned it throughout this post, using your discernment is a must. You don’t want to decide someone is a zebra before you decided it’s not a horse. So don’t reach for the metaphysical explanation straight away. Check-in with your and make sure there’s nothing that could be the source of what you’re experiencing.

Sam, If you read this, how do you explain the fact that I’ve had no contact with someone for about six months. I’ve thought of him most of every day since then, although I’ve struggled to stop thinking of him & move on.

We both recognize that we’re soulmates or have some kind of past life connection. I get constant reminders of him, the biggest being that I saw his mom on TV—we’re not even in the same city! I just get constant reminders of him that I’m not even manifesting or trying to create. So what does that mean?
