signs from the universe that someone is thinking of you

Do you feel when someone is thinking of you?

Yes, your Higher Self can definitely sense when someone is thinking of you. You are not crazy, and you are not imagining things. You only absorb the energy that is directed at you.

There is a spiritual dimension in this world that cannot be seen or touched. But that doesn’t make it any less realistic – those who do inner work know this to be true.

So when your gut tells you that someone is manifesting you, that you are present in someone’s mind, it is because you are.

When you think of someone, does that mean that person is thinking of you?

That would have to be a rumor, as psychologists have confirmed that there is no way to know if another person has been thinking about you, at least not yet.

Can you know when someone has manifested you?  

You know someone has manifested you when they suddenly come into your life, you think of them constantly, they continue to initiate conversations you meet them unexpectedly, and they feel very familiar even though you just met them.

50 Signs From The Universe That Someone Is Thinking of You

1. You have vivid dreams about them

One of the first signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you is your dreams.

No, they’re not just a figment of your imagination or subconscious – they’re hidden messages the Universe is trying to send you.

Ever heard of the saying that people who can’t sleep may be waking up in someone’s dream?

Your special person wakes up and can’t get you out of their mind.

This is especially true if you don’t think about the person much during the day, but somehow you can’t help but dream about them.

2. Angel numbers are all around you

According to numerology, angel numbers are a repeating series of numbers.

The same numbers are all around you.

When you get someone’s phone number or receipt, when you look at your watch, you may number like 111, 222, 333, 444, 555.

These are not just random numbers; they actually have a spiritual meaning.

At the end of the day, the nature of your thoughts depends on the angel number that you are seeing.

3. You feel their presence

You may be physically separated from someone and still feel strange about their presence.

If this has happened to you before, this is one of the best signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you. 

Maybe you haven’t seen this person in years. You never heard anything about them and you don’t know what they were doing.

And suddenly you feel them near you and seem to feel their non-physical touch.

Or you get excited as if you’re about to meet them, even though that’s impossible because they’re so far away from you.

Well, this is a sure sign that someone is thinking of you.

You don’t actually feel their presence – you feel their energy presence.

Their feelings for you are so strong and powerful that they draw you to them.

4. You experience random hiccups

You probably didn’t know that a random hiccup could be one of the cosmic signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you.

Many people think this is just a superstition, but it’s actually quite true.

The best part is you can know whose thoughts are following you.

According to some beliefs, just saying out loud the name of the person who is thinking of you is enough.

Guess the name, and the hiccups will stop.

5. You have random eye twitching

If you experience random right or left eye twitches, this is a sign from the Universe that someone is thinking of you

Of course, these eye twitches can also be a sign of something else, such as stress or excessive caffeine or alcohol intake.

However, if none of these apply to you and you’ve noticed other signs that someone is thinking of you, it’s obvious.

6. You keep smiling for no reason

Having a positive attitude towards life is great. But even when there’s nothing to make you smile, a sudden random smile has a deeper meaning.

You are so connected to that special person that you absorb that person’s energy no matter how far you are away.

They are definitely thinking of you and you are subconsciously happy because of that.

Or you just feel good and you can’t help but feel it.

7. You suddenly have a strong desire to be with your girlfriend

Have you ever been in a situation where you’re convinced you’ve forgotten that special someone? You’re convinced they’re gone forever from your heart and mind.

You don’t talk about them anymore and you hardly ever remember them.

For a long time you were able to get over this person. But out of nowhere, they hit you like lightning. Before you know it, you start obsessing over them, as if no time had passed.

And do you know what the strangest thing is? You didn’t meet them, nobody mentioned them, nothing reminded you of them.

They just popped into your head and you can’t get rid of them. You experience this because they remember you too.

8. You have emotional changes and mood swings

You are not usually a grumpy person. At least you weren’t. But when you bond with another human being, everything changes.

Whether you like it or not, you begin to feel exactly what they feel. You don’t have to be a natural empath for this to happen.

When they are sad, you feel their pain. If they are happy, you will be happy too.

Just because your mood suddenly changes for no reason, that doesn’t mean you’re crazy.

It’s just one of the signs by the Universe that someone is thinking of you.

9. Everything reminds you of them

Wherever you look, there’s something that reminds you of this individual. Out of nowhere, their items may start showing up in front of you.

You listen to a track that you know they liked, you switch on the TV, and the movie you used to watch together is on. The examples are endless, but you get the idea!

Even if you try your hardest to forget them, you simply can’t stop thinking about them. Their energy is always around you.

This is a message from the Universe that they cannot get you out of their head and are trying to reunite with you.

10. You run into people who appear like them

Being physically distant from someone doesn’t mean that you’re not emotionally and spiritually connected.

This is why you may keep coming across people that seem like this particular individual.

They seem to bump into you for a reason. The Universe sends them as a reminder of a person you have been wanting to forget but can’t because they keep thinking of you too.

11. Everyone begins to bring up them

One of the symptoms from the Universe that a person is thinking of you is that all of a sudden, the people near you begin bringing them up.

It may be an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend that you broke up with some time ago, and everyone is aware of you are over them.

But then, suddenly, people begin asking you questions about them.

It’s like you are now no longer the only person who remembers them – so do the people near you.

12. You meet them by chance

You may mention them, and they will appear in your life, even though they haven’t been a part of it for a while.

The spiritual energy you sent them was so powerful that the Universe manifested them in front of you.

This is one of the strongest signs that the other person thought about you because both of your thoughts brought you together.

13. You are involved in their life

Something brings you two together again, even if you parted ways already.

You may find that you are in the same place at the same time.

There is no coincidence.

The truth is that this person refuses to let you go.

It may be unconsciously or on purpose, but in reality, their energy is holding you back, which makes you keep coming across them.

14. You experience continuous sneezing

Another one of the physical signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you is sneezing uncontrollably.

If you’re allergic to pepper, or around peppers, sneezing can come out of nowhere.

Some legends say that if you sneeze three times in a row, someone is sending you positive thoughts and positive vibrations.

They have loving and kind thoughts toward you.

However, if you sneeze more than three times in a row, someone misses you.

Not only that, but they are physically attracted to you.

In Asian cultures, it is believed that an itchy nose is enough. You don’t even have to sneeze properly to know that someone is thinking about you.

15. Your cheeks and ears burn

Do you know that burning feeling after being slapped?

When it appears out of nowhere on your cheek or ear, it’s a telepathic sign that you’re inside someone’s mind.

But this is different from sneezing and hiccups.

If the burning sensation in your cheeks or ears doesn’t go away, that person doesn’t wish you happiness and is sending you negative thoughts.

They probably speak badly of you.

Think hard and find out who is talking nonsense about you behind your back. This is someone who attacks you with words and bad thoughts – hence the burning feeling.

16. You see a white feather or butterfly

Angels may be the first thing that comes to mind when you see white wings. Well, there’s a reason for that.

They have strong symbolism. So the next time a white feather passes by you or lands on your coat, your lover who may have passed away is watching over you and wanting to let you know.

It’s the same with butterflies. When a butterfly lands on your hand or appears near you, it carries a message.

They can’t verbalize it, but they are definitely there to remind someone.

Pay close attention to who you think of when you see this beautiful butterfly. A person is thinking about you.

17. You get sudden goosebumps

Remembering someone from the past can sometimes give you goosebumps.

In this case, your emotions trigger a physical reaction. But what if you get goosebumps out of nowhere?

You’re not thinking about your ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend, and you don’t remember anything important.

Still, you can’t shake that feeling. It’s because you are so alive in the minds of others and their energies that physical sensations begin to appear in your body.

18. You get shivers and chills

These inexplicable physical sensations don’t end there. Goosebumps are followed by shivers and chills.

You can be on the beach in the middle of the day, but suddenly you feel frozen.

Again, this is your body’s physical reaction to the thoughts and energies of that specific person. So feeling unexpected chills is one of the best signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you.   

19. You experience coincidence and synchronicity

These usually occur when two people are thinking about each other at exactly the same time.

For example, you can’t sleep because you have someone on your mind.

You lie down on your bed and reach for your phone to check the time.

In the morning, you check the person’s Messenger or WhatsApp status and the last time they were seen online was exactly when you checked your phone. It seems they were thinking of you too.

Or you’re searching someone’s social media wondering if you should speak to them. Then you see them like your old posts.

It’s clear that you reciprocate each other’s energetic thoughts, and is yet another one of signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you. 

20. You ask the Universe for signs, and you receive them

You may be receiving all the signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you, but you’re still not sure.

Is it really a symptom or just a coincidence?

The best way to resolve this dilemma is to ask the Universe directly for a sign.

Just say it out loud and it’s even better if you can be specific about the person you have in mind.

For example, if you give the Universe the person’s name, they will think of you in the next 24 hours. Or turn on the radio. You are in their mind when the Universe has sent you a song that reminds you of them.

21. You hear their voice

How many times have you heard someone’s voice out of the blue?

You are fully aware they are not there, but you can swear you heard them calling your name or whispering something to you.

The good news is that you are not crazy and you are not hallucinating.

Somewhere, that person must be talking to you.

They may be thinking of contacting you or telling someone about you, or they may be thinking only of you. Either way, you are on their mind.

22. Your intuition knows

Sometimes you know that you still exist in someone’s heart. Maybe you haven’t spoken to each other in years and have nothing in common.

Even close friends and family say many times that you are imagining things.

You have not been in contact with this person and there is no indication that they still love you or that your spiritual connection is alive.

Nevertheless, your bond will always be so strong that no matter the time or distance, it will never be broken.

In spite of your physical distance, you will always feel their presence, and this makes it one of the clearest signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you.

23. Your shoelaces keep untying

Okay, here’s one of the weirdest signs in the universe that someone is thinking of you. And it is related to the untied shoelace.

You know you tied your shoelaces up when you left the house, but somehow they came off a few times a day.

Are you so clumsy? No. It’s just that someone is sending you enough energy through their thoughts that can untie your shoelaces.

24. You smell them

You are in a crowded room (or even at home alone) and suddenly you smell this person.

This person is not around you, but for some reason, their scent fills your nostrils.

Well, the only explanation is that you absorb their energy, and is one of the signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you. 

25.  You can’t stop thinking about them

Is it true that someone is thinking about you when you can’t stop thinking about them? Yes, definitely.

No, you’re not obsessed with them for no apparent reason.

The universe wouldn’t let you waste your energy this way without feedback from the other person – that’s the basis of the Law of Attraction.

26. You dream about them

If you dream about someone often, it could subconsciously mean that that person is thinking of you and looking at you.

Their awareness connects to yours through the power and persistence of their thoughts focused on you.

If you feel like you see the same person over and over again in your dreams, start tracking.

Start keeping your dream journal right next to your bed.

Write about your dreams in this diary right after you wake up and before you start forgetting them.

After a while, you might find patterns and decipher what they’re thinking.

27. A real psychic confirms it for you

One of the most straightforward signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you is if a psychic tells you they are. 

Conversing with a real clairvoyant, however, makes things clearer. Psychics use their Third Eye to make precise predictions.

28. You recognize them

If your soulmate is out there, they’re probably thinking of you right now.

Recognizing someone deeply is one of the most obvious signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you.  

But how do you know if someone really is your soulmate?

29. You feel the need to be with them

When you have someone you love in your life, it can be hard to resist the temptation to say, “I wish we were together right now!”

Think of a time when you experienced something amazing or something silly and thought, “I wish they could come see that too!”

Remember the first time you had a great meal?

It could reflect the positive vibes they send you when they think of you.

30. You experience sudden emotional swings

One of the interesting things about our thoughts is that they mentally connect us to the person we’re thinking of.

When you think of him/her, he/she thinks of you too.

That’s why we experience things like sudden, inexplicable bursts of energy and the desire to be with them.

But this spiritual connection can also lead to sudden mood swings.

That’s because the person you’re spiritually connected to can have strong moods, and you’re subconsciously feeding on that energy.

Strong vibes don’t necessarily have to be associated with you.

The mere fact that two people are connected can affect each other’s moods across distances.

31. You think about them subconsciously

While you’re at school, while you’re at work, while you’re walking the mall with your friends, cues, and reminders of them pop up wherever you go.

No matter how hard you try, you just can’t get them out of your head.

The simple fact is that they connected with you because they thought of you so much.

How many times have you picked up the phone, texted them that you were thinking of them, and received a reply that they were thinking of you?

 One of the most elaborate signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you is if you think of them subconsciously most of the time.

32. You feel their energy

Energy comes from within us, from our thoughts and soul.

So when someone special thinks of you, their thoughts represent the kind of energy you feel.

For example, if they think positively of you, you may feel an overall positive aura that embodies everything you are going through and makes everything appear brighter and lighter.

33. You can hear and feel them

When you have a deep connection with someone, that bond transcends time and space.

This means that you feel them in a way that is beyond your thoughts and the energies around you, but you can also experience them through your senses.

Think about the last time you heard or felt them, even if they weren’t around at all.

They may have traveled half the world, but you could have sworn they called your name or told you a joke.

This can be the most powerful sign of a deep spiritual connection, and consider yourself very lucky if you develop this with someone.

34. They share things they know you’ll like

Do you ever find yourself scrolling through social media, laughing hysterically at jokes that seem directed at you, or constantly seeing posts that are perfectly relevant to your interests?

And have you noticed that these posts, videos, and articles are shared by the same person?

Sharing information on social media to get someone’s attention is something we all do.

So if you feel like someone is trying to get you something they’ve shared on their social feed, they probably are. It’s just one of the signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you. 

35. Their friends and family know you

This is especially important if you don’t even know their friends and family.

You may not have had the chance to be formally introduced, but somehow the people in your life know everything about you.

If their friends or relatives tell you inside jokes, or can’t stop talking about you, it is a great sign of them opening up about how much that person likes you.

That, or they may ask you if you like them too.

A person who is interested in you may use their friends and family as gateways to your affection.

They may be afraid to tell you their true feelings.

Maybe you don’t know they like you and they’re subconsciously talking about you.

Either way, it’s one of the most blatant signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you.

36. They remember the little things

A person who likes you will remember your words, no matter how small. From obscure TV references to coffee preferences.

They care about you because they want to please you.

A more telling sign is when they remember what you said.

This means they are fully aware of who you are, so even the smallest details of the conversation will be important to them.

They think about you so often that the little details about you remain in their mind.

37. You get random texts during the day

Your cell phone may keep getting notifications from them. They tagged you in a funny post or ask what you’re up to.

Either way, they’re in touch with you. When someone thinks of you, they can’t help but be attracted to you.

If you get random, meaningless texts all day long, take it as a sign that they miss you.

Texting is how most people say “I miss you” and one of the signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you. 

38. They like old posts on your social media

If they have a habit of liking your old posts from a couple of years ago, they are trying to find out who you are.

They want to get closer to you and find out more about your past to better know your personality, likes, and dislikes, and they’re so excited that they decided to investigate all this on their own. 

If you’re wondering about how to heal from a past event or situation that no longer serves you, be sure to read this blog post on Burning the Past – A Detachment Spell for Cleansing Pain. 

They may even immediately like, comment, or engage with one of your posts, so they let you know you’re on their mind. 

39. They light up when they see you

You enter the room and you can literally feel their eyes burning at you. 

When you look at them, they’re smiling and waving excitedly, just as you’d imagine.

Their day is made just by seeing you. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been away for weeks or days. Your presence alone is enough to make them happy and excited.

And not just once or twice. Every time you end up in the same room, they will immediately gravitate toward you and enter your personal bubble.

Being happy around you is one of the best signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you.

40. They want to learn more about you

Have you ever heard anything from someone that you don’t remember saying, like a secret with a mutual friend or a buried social post on their media?

People who are thinking about you will try to fill the void in your absence by talking about you or finding out more about you.

You may have friends in common.

A person who has a crush on you will find endless ways to get stories out of the people you know.

They want to know what you are doing without asking you. That’s how they fill in the blanks.

On the other hand, they may also be following you on their social media.

That is, mentioning or remembering posts that you don’t remember.

Forgive them if they think it is strange that they’re talking about “that breakfast” you had. They’re just trying to get to know you, and this is one of the best signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you.

41. They ask for your opinion

Another one of the signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you is that they value your opinion. 

It’s even more insightful when they involve you in potentially life-changing decisions.

If they turn to you for personal things, you can be sure that this person is into you and wants your opinion to put you in the spotlight.

They may be asking for your opinion because they truly believe you can add a lot of value to their life.

In particular, this unconscious preference for your opinion shows that they hold you in high regard.

42. You get a little present every time you meet them

People who think about you will find little ways to let you know, and this includes giving you gifts.

Presents delivered to your door, unprompted team tasks completed, or a small souvenir when you leave town are all signs that someone is thinking of you, even if you aren’t there.

So treat gift-giving as one of the signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you

43. They notice new things about you

They usually appear to note what is new with them, such as wearing an adorable new hairdo or carrying a brand new pair of sneakers.

It’s like they have an integrated scanner in their head and are very aware of whatever is related to you.

It’s now no longer simply the bodily stuff either. 

Maybe you’ve got long gone radio silence on social media so they are asking how you are doing.

Maybe they observed you are a little quieter than usual so they want to lift your spirits.

All of these are signs of noticing you and in effect, thinking about you.

44. Their friends always talk to you about them

Are their friends curious about you and your relationship situation?

Do they tend to persuade and fit you two together into every conceivable situation?

If so, they act as that person’s wingman.

A person who thinks about you all the time can’t stop talking about you.

Maybe their friends are tired of “what ifs” and are trying to bring you together.

If their friends often make fun of you or talk about how compatible you are, there’s no doubt that they really like you.

45. You feel distressed when eating

This may come all of a sudden when you’re enjoying your meal.

The random discomfort while eating is a psychic sign.

What happens is you may start feeling like the food that you are eating is getting stuck, and swallowing becomes very difficult.

Coughing and choking are both signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you. 

All of these are signs that someone is thinking about you. You should check your surroundings and see if there’s anyone watching you.

But if there is no one around you, and you’re having trouble eating, it’s just one of the signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you. 

46. The tarot cards confirm it

If you’ve done a tarot reading, you realize that the cards are used as guidance for our lives. 

A card deck will tell you whether or not this person is thinking about you, and the best way to get an answer is by asking a clear question, such as: “Is X thinking about me?”

You’ll be surprised to see the signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you.

47. You feel the need to text them for no reason

One of the strongest signs that someone is thinking of you is an inexplicable desire to text them.

This can be a bit unsettling as you may not have any feelings for this person.

But, because they are constantly thinking about you, they are radiating energy toward you that makes you feel drawn to them, whether you like it or not.

Before texting them, you want to make sure that this is something you want to do and not just something you are being forced to do.

48. People tell you how compatible you both are

When there is a strong connection between you two, others can’t help but notice how suitable you’d be for each other.

If others have commented, then you’re definitely not imagining it, and it is one of the clearest signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you. 

49. They mirror your behavior

When someone always has you on their mind, they’ll subconsciously adopt some of your ways and behaviors.

To create a connection with you and show you how important you are to them, they may mimic the way you hold your coffee cups, use the same phrases as you, or even stand the same way. 

50. They gaze at you meaningfully 

If a special person holds extensive eye contact with you, they’re not just gazing into your eyes for no reason.

They are trying to subconsciously tell you that they constantly think of you, and value you. 

Usually, holding eye contact with someone can be awkward, so you may both quickly break the gaze within a few seconds and ignore your stare.

When it’s the right person, eye contact can be a strong emotional link between you and a person who loves and often thinks of you.

Can we feel when someone is thinking of us? 

Yes, deeply connected people can feel this phenomenon since it boosts each other’s energy and overall feelings. One of the strongest signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you is feeling bodily sensations in the form of hiccups, sneezes, and shivers. 

What does it mean to be obsessed with someone?

If you can’t get someone out of your head, it could be that the universe is trying to bring the two of you together. You two often cross paths, and your gut tells you good things are coming.

How do you get someone to think of you?

According to experts, there are many ways you can get someone to think of you. You can tell a mutual friend about them, keep the final conversation positive, keep them laughing even when they’re away, hide your secret notes so they can be found by them, do caring things for them, and use scents to evoke their memories.


We’ve covered 50 signs from the Universe that someone is thinking of you. 

But if you want a completely certain answer to this question and where it’s going to take you, it is recommended that you talk to a mutual friend or ask the Universe for a direct sign.

Not only can the Universe tell you more about who thinks of you and why, but it can also advise you on what to expect in your future.

So, put your Universal signs radar on, and start exploring your connection with a specific person further to see if they are thinking of you.

Do you keep wondering if a special someone is thinking of you? Let me know in the comments!
