Everyone on earth has been given a valuable spiritual gift to share with the world. Unfortunately, many of us go through life not knowing what ours is.
If this is you, it may leave you feeling unsure, lost, or unfulfilled. These feelings are natural, because knowing about our innate gifts can help give renewed, deeper purpose to our lives.
Here, we’re exploring the 7 experiences that the universe may be sending your way, to help you uncover your own gift, and to nurture it in a powerful, inspiring new way.
Is your attention drawn to something, or someone, repeatedly? Call it intuition, coincidence, or a calling being placed on your spirit to do something—whatever it is, this kind of synchronicity can be your soul’s way of telling you to pay attention.
These meaningful little coincidences can be a sign that you’re on the right path. The universe is giving you a little thumbs up to tell you that whatever it is you’re doing, you’re going in the right direction.
Synchronicity is also a self-fulfilling prophecy. Once you become open to it, and your physical being gets in tune with your spiritual being, you may begin to see little signs everywhere.
Early Morning Wake Up Calls
Midnight may be the witching hour, but 3 AM is the connection hour. If you wake up around that time on a regular basis, it could be that the universe is trying to get some alone time with you. As one of the signs you have a spiritual gift, these wake up calls often come with messages or feelings that can inspire you.
Instead of being irritated by your early morning wake up call, embrace it. Get comfortable and listen—there may be something the universe is trying to tell you.
We are at our most vulnerable and creative when we’re asleep. As Cinderella once said, “A dream is a wish your heart makes.”
As we sleep, the brain works through any issues, turning them over and examining in ways we might not have the time or energy for during the day. Visions and ideas can come to us more easily.
A dream alone isn’t enough though. What counts is how we listen to—and interpret—that dream. Will you follow yours and see where it leads? If you’ve had a dream about someone, will you get in touch with them? Or will you do what many of us do when we’re not trying to tune into our spiritual gifts, and shrug it off so we can go about the day?
Visions can mean a lot of things to different people: a sudden premonition, an image in your head, or déjà vu.
In fact, many people believe that déjà vu is actually a sign from your spirit that this part of your journey was planned out for you in advance—and therefore, that you are exactly where you’re meant to be.
Although they don’t feel good at the time, nightmares can be one of the most effective signs that you have a spiritual gift.
The universe starts out whispering to us—providing seeds that we can nurture and grow. If we ignore the seeds, the universe starts sending louder signals until we can’t ignore them anymore.
Nightmares are one of the signals that are hard to ignore. If spirit can’t get through to you on the first few tries, waking you up with a bang may be the only way to open your eyes—literally and figuratively.

Emotional Reactions to Mundane Situations
Especially common in empathetic people, this is an especially valuable sign you have a spiritual gift.
If you are spending time with someone and feel an emotional response that isn’t tied to the conversation or experience you’re having, it can be a sign to dig deeper. Using our intuition in this way can help us to deepen a connection with someone.
Happiness For No Reason
When it comes to signs you have a spiritual gift, this is my personal favorite.
Have you ever been doing nothing and suddenly felt a shiver of happiness or a little thrill of excitement for no reason?
Children experience this a lot—as adults, we tend to put it down to excess energy or too much sugar.
When you’re connecting with your spirit, though, you may want to consider what many already accept: that these bubbles of pure joy that go through us are actually a sign from our spirit that we’re approaching a time of bliss and peace on our journey.
And don’t we all need a little more bliss in their life?
