“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.” – Lao Tzu
Sometimes in life, it’s hard to figure out who we are, where we’re meant to be and what we’re meant to be doing.
During these confusing times, life can feel overwhelming and unfair. Luckily, we all always have access to the infinite wisdom of The Universe and can tap into its guidance anytime we need to.
Here are 5 signs from The Universe it’s time to make changes in your life:
1.) You’re bored with life
Does life as it is no longer excite you?
Do you wake up feeling like it’s groundhog day?
Do you feel generally bored as you work through your days?
If you answered yes to the above questions, then take this as a sign from the Universe that it’s time to switch directions.
Life is meant to be a joyful, exciting adventure full of lessons, breakthroughs, and new experiences. If your life doesn’t feel like this then you aren’t in the process of fulfilling your true potential and need to start making changes in your life.
You can start by making a list of the things you want in your life, so you have a better understanding of where you are now versus where you’d like to be. Then ask yourself, “What can I do today to start bringing these things into my life?” Whatever your answers are, implement those actions into your daily life.
2.) Everything feels like a struggle
Do you feel like your swimming upstream, against the current of life?
Does everything seem to fall apart no matter how hard you try?
If you answered yes to the above questions, then this means you’re resisting life and it’s time to flow with it, rather than against it.
Challenges and obstacles are a natural part of life, but they’re not meant to be present in everything we do and experience. When life feels like it’s against you know that it’s not, instead, this is The Universe asking you to shift directions.
What are you doing in your life that feels like a struggle? Is it your job? Relationship? Lack of self-care? Whatever those things are, take this time now to identify them.
3.) You feel like you don’t know yourself
Do you feel like you’ve lost sight of yourself, and the person you want to be?
Are you unclear about your purpose and uncertain of what to do with your life?
If you answered yes to these questions, then take this as a tell-tale sign you need to change paths — and the sooner the better!
It’s easy to get lost in life and become confused about who and what you are. After all, there are so many confusing narratives out there, and if you aren’t careful it’s easy to get sucked into what other people what you to be.
But, you have to live life for yourself first and foremost. This means being true to yourself, and always working to bring your desires, talents, and abilities into fruition.
Take time every single day (yes, starting today!) to work on yourself. Read, journal, meditate, workout, do that thing you’ve been wanting to do, have that experience you’ve been wanting to have. This is your life, and you can’t live it for yourself if you don’t know yourself.
4.) You aren’t regularly expanding your horizons
Do you feel stifled and like you aren’t growing as a person?
Does it seem like you’ve already mastered everything you currently do?
If you answered yes to these questions, then this is a definite sign from The Universe that you need to expand your horizons, and trek a path that is abundant in personal growth and development.
Life is a journey of personal discovery and development but sometimes we get stuck in our routines and stop working on ourselves. We must always be dedicated to our personal expansion, and welcoming new experiences, people, and lessons into our lives.
This is how we grow as human beings (and spiritual beings) and learn which path suits us best!
5.) Deep down, you know you need to switch tracks
Is there something inside of you that’s telling you it’s time to switch paths?
Do you just know you’re destined for more?
If you answered yes to these questions, then take this as yet another sign from The Universe you’re destined for a different path.
Don’t let fear hold you back from making changes in your life. Know that by trekking the path of uncertainty, you will, in turn, find clarity in your life — and figure out what you’re meant to be doing and where! Intuition (your internal guiding force) can be relied upon at any point in time to make sure you’re heading in the right direction.
Meditate, free write or pray before you make any hasty decisions. Follow the path that feels right for you, not the path that feels the easiest. Remember, life is meant to be a journey — not a destination, and by following your true path you’ll enjoy your entire journey!
