“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” -Dr. Seuss
There are 6 billion people on this earth but in the eyes of our beloved, we become unique. Love gives meaning to our soul and purpose to our lives. While even the happiest married couple bicker and fight about the most trivial things, singles long to feel that sense of companionship with someone. When you can catch the signs the universe wants you to be with someone, perhaps it offers a bit of solace in your never-ending overtures.
This is the eternal quest: to find our true love, our soul mate, to be one half of a greater whole. We get multiple stories about people who want to be in a serious relationship but can’t seem to find someone they connect with. In their quest to find ‘the one’, they have invested months, even years, in unhealthy or unworthy relationships, only to end up with emotional scars and baggage from past relationships, which makes them doubt their own selves. Is their soul mate even there?
We’re here to tell you your soulmate exists. We believe that the universe will give you signs to tell you that the love of your life has come. All you have to do is be open to those signs. The essential thing is to keep an open mind while interpreting signs from the universe and allow yourself to embrace your loved one wholeheartedly at the right time.
Let’s take a look at exactly what those signs can be, with some conclusive points by Dr. Ashish Paul (BAMS), a qualified Ayurvedic Physician and a Medical Herbalist, towards the end of the article.
10 Signs From The Universe That Love Is Coming Your Way
Signs the universe wants you to be with someone might be staring you right in the face, but since you don’t really know what to look for, you might be completely oblivious to the signs. Who knows, maybe you have even met each other! We had this story from a person who met her true love after twenty years of their first meeting.
We believe in destiny, in stars, do you? We believe that if a person is meant for you, s/he will show up when the stars in the universe align to make the love of your life cross your path at the right time and the right place. Perhaps in a gym, or at a party, or maybe in your office. S/he may even come in the form of a fellow traveler or a conference attendee. Amidst the chaos, one thing is for sure, the signs your soulmate is coming into your life will help be on the lookout.
Love’s arrival feels like magic, a gift of luck. Suddenly, everything starts making sense. Why the past relationships failed, what you needed to learn from the karmic relationships. Perhaps you needed to grow, maybe you were not ready to commit. And when all things fall into place, the universe will put you two face to face.
And while we are a little suspect of love at first sight, we do think that when you meet your soulmate, there’s this soft connection between the two of you that is inexplicable. Maybe it’s your pheromones reacting with each other, or maybe it’s your intuition telling you that you complement what s/he lacks, and vice versa.
You might just see the signs you will be in a relationship soon, and so might your future partner. The energy of love will envelop your life, but you must pay attention to the signs from the universe that love is coming your way and work actively to remove any blockages-emotional, psychological, or otherwise-that may hinder it.
The signs of love, however, will be a combination of subtle and the more obvious signs. You will have to trust your instincts, use your analytical mind, and perhaps the wisdom to read and decode whether s/he is truly your soulmate. when we say soulmate, we don’t mean you’re perfect for each other; no one is.
By soulmate, we mean that the two of you like each other (even when the sexual chemistry has faded) and feel that you accept and get each other and will be able to carve out a decent life together. It does not mean that you will never have differences with your true love or never have huge arguments. It means that in the end, love will triumph. Even if you do not see eye to eye on a thing, you will agree to disagree.
So brace up, have patience, but be alert to notice these love indicators. Remember, the universe speaks to us all the time. We don’t always recognize the messages or realizations because the universe speaks through experience. Do not restrict yourself. We have listed some of the signs love is on the way to make your life easier and happier.

1. When the time is right, you’ll know it
While it’s true you can just feel the signs of fate to be with someone, it’s not going to be as dramatic as it is in the movies. Your knight in shining armor won’t come into your life to sweep you off your feet the minute they lay their eyes on you. Your Ryan Gosling might not be waiting to bump into you. Even so, the signs of soulmate arrival can almost always be felt long before you even meet someone.
Perhaps you’ve been thinking about the qualities you want in someone, and they start showing exactly those qualities. Or they talk about it to you in some random conversation. You may have not even brought the topic up, but somehow, you’re just talking about it with them. Trust in that sixth sense.
When you meet your soul mate, your heart will have some inkling, or maybe you will feel it in your gut. There will be a flow to the friendship, an inexplicable feeling of comfort and connection. More often than not, this feeling that someone special has come your way will be mutual, akin to how pieces of a puzzle just click together when you find the ones with fitting grooves. So all you have to do is trust that feeling and follow the path shown by the universe to reach your true love destination.
2. You keep having the most romantic dreams
You may have dreams about loving and being loved, and those dreams will make you feel oddly satisfied and happy. It could be an acquaintance that you have seen across town, in bars or cafes, or maybe in your office building. Once the dreams of being in love start coming in almost every other night, you can take it as one of the things that will happen when the universe wants you to be with someone.
You are not sure that your dream is about the same person, but you might have a vague feeling of having seen them somewhere. Even when you wake up and cannot put a face to the happiness that you have felt when you were dreaming. The moment you see them in real life you will know it was them. It could be one of the signs you have found your soulmate.
Romantic dreams are signs from the universe that true love is around the corner. Dreams are a window into the subconscious and they let you know just what you truly desire. “Ignoring the signs is a good way to end up at the wrong destination.” -Unknown.
3. You start seeing the sequence of numbers
The universe has a unique way of beckoning the love of your life through the manifestation of number sequences such as 1111 or 111. They are also known as ‘angel numbers’. So, whenever you notice such numbers in your bills, the clock in your phone, the page numbers of books, etc. Maybe it is a sign that one crucial phase of your life has ended (you being single) or that something different is about to begin.
It’s one of those signs that can easily slip by you if you don’t know what to look for. Even when you do, call it placebo or call it fate, we think spotting such sequences of numbers will truly make a difference in the way you approach things. When you notice signs you will be in a relationship soon, they can help push you to be more adventurous as well.
The meaning you give to it will be the meaning your life takes from it. Remember, these angel numbers are there to help you move from a less than happy state to a happier one. Maybe they are asking you to open yourself up to experiences. Let these numbers guide your spirits. Pay attention to your surroundings and the people you are with because these number sequences are important indicators of something beautiful and magical that the universe is conspiring about.
4. Random repetitions are sure-shot signs of love
Signs from the universe on love will not appear in a straightforward way, but they will be around in a random sequence and weirdly in a repetitive loop. For instance, you may be humming a tune in your head and it plays in the club you are lunching at, and then your city radio plays it on your way home. You wake up to your neighbors playing another romantic song of the same era and then the song lodges itself even more firmly.
It’s almost like all you need is that person to give the face to that song. What if you overhear sweet whispering of love’s declaration in the cafe you are grabbing your coffee at, or have two friends share about their recent double date. What if your social media throws a short video of someone popping the question to someone. Noticing these indicators smartly might just be the difference between finding love and looking in the wrong places.
5. You are confident and ready to take risks
You have been through the throes of romance and a score of ex’s that seem to have left you bitter. Rather than having a better understanding of what you want, you only have a clear view of exactly what you don’t want. You have worked out your deal-makers and deal-breakers, and you are confident about what you are bringing to the table.
You believe in yourself and you are ready for the right one to come along. This is what the universe too was waiting for. It seems that you are not afraid to take risks and explore new opportunities in life. Maybe you went on that spiritual retreat that you had promised yourself and never did. Maybe you took up the challenge of relocating to a new city for work.
You moved out of your comfort zone and met someone you would not have ideally met. You have done things to add value to your life, getting fit, living healthy, chasing your goals, and learning new things. The universe has perhaps guided you to this new setting to make you meet your person.
One of the secrets to finding true love is that you must be willing to accept new challenges and experience new things. Being more outgoing and social is one of the things that will happen when the universe wants you to be with someone.
6. You are happy and content with your personal life
It seems like everything is falling into place. Professionally, you are doing well, and personally, your relationships with relatives, friends, and others around you are smooth. You are content with what you have in life and you are done with past regrets, especially related to your love life. You understand that people can not be copies of each other and that loving also means not loving at times.
This is perhaps the time when you are least disturbed or influenced by your past emotional baggage and are ready to be open and more understanding of the new relationships coming your way. You are now not as quick to judge or typecast and perhaps you are at peace with yourself.
From that understanding, comes fulfillment. You will find another who is in the same place in life. You two are complete in your own right, but come together to be even better and to help each other be better. The happiness you feel within yourself is an important sign from the universe that love is on its way and that you are finally ready to settle down with “the one” in your life happily.
7. Love is everywhere you go
Flowers are in bloom, a spate of romantic movies are being released in the movie theatre and on Netflix, couples holding hands in the park or exchanging glances on the bus. Peacocks dancing for their hens, and even the rains speak of the love they feel for the earth.
The universe showers lovers everywhere around you. As a result, your love energy level rises. You feel positive and you want to shower the feelings on someone. It will be as if love is following you around. It’s a sign that love is going to cross your path soon.
When you’re more sensitive to the subtle signs your soulmate is coming into your life, you’re definitely going to be a bit more attentive to who treats who well. That’s the power of the universe, when it wants to nudge you in a direction you may have previously ignored, the result is often beautiful. Or in this case, someone beautiful.

8. You start believing in the universe
Earlier, if you were sceptical about the signs from the universe, you will now have faith in the kindness of the universe. You will begin to see the part destiny plays and you’ll go with the flow. It’s no coincidence that your newfound faith in the universe is coupled with happiness, it’s a clear sign of fate to be with someone.
You will now be comfortable with the idea of asking the universe for guidance and will find signs in the most unexpected places. You will be able to trust the universe to have your best interest at heart and soon, the path to your true love will become clearer and smoother.
9. You’re not making the same mistakes when it comes to love
Since you’ve worked on yourself, you’ve learned and healed from your past relationships and you’ve come to realize that the secret of finding love is to love yourself first, you won’t end up making the same mistakes you used to. By the same mistakes, we mean the kind where you’d spend days, months even, waiting for that partner who you knew would never really come around your way.
You now know how to approach love, how to treat it with care, you know that sometimes ‘love’ isn’t all it takes to keep love alive. When you’re overcome with self-gratifying realizations such as these, it’s one of the clear signs of soulmate arrival in your life.
Only when you’re ready to accept love in its truest form will you be willing to let yourself experience it as well. Once your inhibitions and any doubts you have are thrown out of the window, it’s nothing except a clear sign your soulmate is coming into your life, and you’re ready to accept them.
10. You’ve met someone
One of the clearest signs the universe wants you to be with someone is when someone you really like comes your way, seemingly out of the blue. Perhaps you met up at a party you didn’t want to go to, or you met at your favorite coffee shop, a place you usually don’t even talk to anyone since you’re so busy getting your morning coffee.
It’s easy to confuse love and infatuation here, but when this person comes into your life, you’ll just feel it. The coincidences and the synchronicities won’t stop coming, the conversation will feel completely natural and you’ll be taking all the right steps since you now know how to go about being in love.
One of the biggest things that will happen when the universe wants you to be with someone is that you’ll feel your relationship with this person be extremely easygoing. Things will fall into place, you won’t spend your nights worrying about the bond you have with this person.
As you can see, the signs your soulmate is coming into your life largely depend on how you interact with yourself. If you’re more confident and your healing has been completed, you’re more likely to be your best self in front of someone you could possibly consider a soulmate. While you’re looking for the signs the universe wants you to be with someone, let’s take a look at how it’s possible that people can block their own energies.

Case study of someone who was blocking her own energy and how she resolved it.
Shivanya Yogmaya, a healer who helps people cleanse their negative energy and past baggage, says, “You have kissed all the wrong frogs, and finally the prince shows up, someone who is far more than you expected, and he desires you too! Finally, it is not a rotten man or one-sided love. The question to ask is, why did it take you so long to find the one?” She concludes that more often than not, the person themselves stands in the way of love.
All the barriers to love are normally within them, and not the other way round. She shared the case study of a client who was approaching all her new relationships with huge baggage-the fear of being abandoned, sexual abuse, fear of separation, and none stemmed from this lifetime. In their sessions, they dived into her past karmic imprints of serial patterns of many lifetimes.
She gave her healing sessions through Reiki, crystals, and Yog Nidra. This helped her rid herself of her past scars of fears and doubts from all the dimensions of space and time. And finally, when she was ready to receive love, it came knocking as if from the Universe. She says, “The universe was and is always responding to you, to your vibration. The universe begins to reveal signs of who you are… not just what you want or desire.
Interpreting the signs from the universe
To succeed in your quest for true love, you should learn to interpret the signs from the universe. This, however, can be a challenging task because we often train ourselves to ignore our intuitions and gut feelings. We prioritize logic and hard facts and try to ground ourselves in reality and deal with things practically. So here are a few tips that will clear the obstacles in your journey to find love:
- Believe in the universe with all your heart and know that everything happens for a reason
- Keep asking the universe for what you want and your wishes will be answered
- Be patient at all times no matter how hard it gets and never lose hope
- Acknowledge and thank the universe for all that you have received and grateful for the guidance
What you will feel within you as a sign from the universe that love is coming your way
Ashish Paul, a qualified Ayurvedic Physician (BAMS-Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery) and a Medical Herbalist sums it up for us here:-
- You are ready to surrender. You are ready to give all your emotions to loving someone. And you are ready unconditionally. You have surrendered to love. It doesn’t matter who the person might be, you have decided that you will love this person to your fullest.
- You have an unfulfilled desire and you might remember this desire from time to time. You have this unadorned desire to be loved or to share love with someone.
- Your current relationship is not fulfilling. Everything between you two is going fine but it just doesn’t seem enough. Your relationship is not charming enough for you. You may feel bored and unhappy, not necessarily with your partner but generally with the situation.
- You are becoming a little more courageous. You are taking a little more risk every day. Perhaps you put on that bright lipstick, which you would never have dared to use before, or you were too conscious to use before.
- You want adventure. You are ready for some thrill, excitement and some passion. You may decide to go on a hiking trip or a painting holiday for adventure.
- You are curious. You are curious about yourself. You want to see how you would behave if love shows up right now in your life. You are eager to see your reaction.
- You are ready for exploration. This exploration or this journey could be of sexual nature or it could be cooking or singing.
- You are becoming sensual. You are sexually aware of your desires. You want someone who can help you in carrying out these sexual desires.
Only when you follow the above tips honestly, will you be open to the energies of love and attract this emotion towards you in a more positive way. Now after knowing the signs from the universe that love is coming and how to interpret them, you are ready to take a deep plunge in the ocean of love. All the best!
