Missing someone can be one of the most intense feelings for any of us.
The feeling is so intense that it’s often felt by both the person being missed and the one missing them.
But how can you really know if someone is missing you? What spiritual signs are there to look out for?
That’s exactly what I’ll talk about in this article. Once you learn these spiritual signs, you’ll be able to notice things immediately, even facilitate your spiritual reconnection with that person.
So let’s get started.
9 spiritual signs someone is missing you
1) They show up in your dreams
Dreams have a lot of power.
From both a historical standpoint, and from a scientific standpoint, it’s clear that they are important, but for slightly different reasons.
When it comes to the science of dreaming, no one is really sure exactly why we do it. Yes, there’s theories, but nothing truly conclusive.
It has been proven, with more than anecdotal evidence, that strangers have shared the exact same dream. There is no rational explanation from science so far.
In addition, scientists are still unsure why people have the same types of dreams across cultures and around the globe.
For instance, the “teeth falling out” dream concept is something shared between multiple cultures and across generations. And again, science has no satisfactory explanation.
Historically speaking, dreams have always been a mystical source for guidance, illumination, and clarity. It’s a window into the subconscious, a way to connect with our true selves, and with others, and so much more.
In other words, dreams are important.
As someone who has frequent and powerful dreams, I’m no stranger to having people show up in them. It’s a sign they might be thinking about me and missing me.
And there’s always a reason. When I start dreaming about someone frequently, I know that it’s time for a connection, or that one is coming soon.
So if someone you haven’t seen in a while starts appearing in your dreams, it’s a big sign that they’re probably missing you. How long has it been since you’ve last seen them?
It could also be a sign that it’s time to reconnect. Have you been missing them also? Keep them in your thoughts and the universe might just bring you together.
It could be someone that you share an incredibly deep connection with but have drifted away from. This is common in twin flame relationships.
If you’re wondering if they could be your twin flame, here’s some undeniable signs to help you figure it out.
2) You’re suddenly moody
This is a big sign that someone is actively thinking about you and missing you. You’re on their mind when suddenly you find yourself in a random mood out of nowhere.
Everything was good, then suddenly you find yourself in a funk; melancholy and down, you wonder what on earth happened.
Now I will admit that I’m a pretty moody person. It doesn’t take much to send me into a negative or sad mood. Sometimes it doesn’t make any sense and catches me off guard.
However, that’s not the kind of mood swing I’m talking about here. The kind of mood swing I’m talking about seems like it comes from outside yourself.
It overtakes you in a wave; it doesn’t feel like it’s your mood changing more than it does you accepting a different mood.
This often happens when someone is missing you a lot. They’re having intense thoughts and feelings about you. The sudden transformation in your emotions is, in that sense, external.
When you feel yourself overtaken like this, it’s a good time to be aware of what’s going on around you, because you might find other signs to help point the way. You might find some clues as to what comes next.
It’s possible that you might run into the very person who has been missing you and sooner than you think. They might soon send you a text, or an email, or even a letter. Then you’ll understand why you were so randomly moody.
If you find yourself in a down mood frequently, however, here’s a great article to help improve your mood when you’re down.
3) Finding a white feather
Finding a white feather is a big sign that someone is missing you or thinking about you.
The magic of the universe will often reveal itself in timing. There’s going to be any number of times you might find a white feather in your life. However, it’s not just the feather that’s the significance.
It’s the timing.
What does that mean? Often a white feather is a sign from the universe that someone is thinking about you. Pay attention to your surroundings when you find the white feather. Is it somewhere familiar, does it seem like it has importance?
You could have also been thinking about the person missing you when you found a feather.
I know that the times I’ve found a white feather, I’ve known it was a sign because it was while I was thinking about someone important, or I felt that the timing was just right.
So keep a sharp eye out for this serendipitous sign, it might just be that someone is thinking about you and missing you.
4) Out of the blue thoughts about them
These thoughts always strike me as strange when I have them. I won’t have thought about somebody in months, maybe even years, and then suddenly my mind is sparked.
For instance, I’ll recall the memory of a good time that we shared, thinking back on it fondly, only in the next moment to realize how strange it was to have had that thought.
Or this person’s name will suddenly fill my head, I’ll see their face, and then they’ll be in my thoughts for the following days or weeks. Much like the mood swings, it feels almost like these thoughts come from outside of yourself. Almost as if you were receiving them, instead of having them.
This could in all likelihood be because that person has been missing you lately, thinking about you, and calling out to you subconsciously. Maybe they’ve been dreaming about you.
It’s a good thing, especially if you’re interested in reconnecting or if you miss them too. The sudden thoughts you’re having about them will only accelerate the process.
The good news is this:
The more you think about them, the stronger of a draw you will have towards each other, and the higher the likelihood you’ll be able to reconnect, maybe even sooner than you think.
5) Accidentally using their name
I tend to mix up people’s names fairly regularly. For whatever reason, I can’t always seem to find the right one first. It happens to the best of us.
However, it’s different when someone is missing you. How so?
Well, it’s going to seem strange when you accidentally use this person’s name in your day-to-day life. Much like the last point, it could be that you haven’t thought about them in a while and you find yourself slipping up and using their name in the wrong contexts.
Why on earth would you use that person’s name, of all people?
Because they’re missing you.
It’s especially important to note when and how you slip up. If you use the wrong name with someone you talk to every day, someone you’re really close to (for instance a relative), it’s an even stronger sign that someone is missing you.
When was the last time you accidentally called them the wrong name? Probably a long time, because you’re so close to them.
If you slip up more than once, it’s a big heads up. Using the same name in different contexts, both times wrong is a clear sign from the universe that the person’s name you’re using is thinking about you, and missing you.
6) Inexplicable goosebumps
When the goosebumps are rising on your skin and it’s nowhere near cold out, it could be a big sign that someone is missing you. You’re on their minds, and you feel that sensation in a very physical way.
Any number of things can give you goosebumps, that’s just the fact of the matter. It could be anything from a slight breeze to an epiphany, a beautiful song to ASMR.
Our body reacts to stimulus even when we don’t realize it.
Here’s the thing:
While there are countless things that cause goosebumps, scientists aren’t entirely sure why they happen.
Inexplicable gooseflesh is often a reaction to something just beyond our senses. When “the hair stands up on the back of your neck,” it’s the same reaction as when you’re cold. Our body is sensing something we aren’t.
And here’s the thing:
It might just be a sign that someone is thinking about you. That chilling moment of clarity when you get an overwhelming sensation.
It happens to me often; I’ve found that when I pay attention to when it happens, and try to figure out why I can actually have quite a bit of clarity.
In other words, take it as a sign that someone is missing you when you can’t figure out why you suddenly have gooseflesh across your body.
7) Synchronistic encounters
Synchronistic encounters are funny things. Little anomalies that can at times beggar belief.
Have you ever experienced a synchronistic encounter?
For example, you’re thinking about someone and they suddenly call you at the same time.
Or you’re talking about someone and the next thing you know they appear in front of you as if they heard you from a million miles away. It’s almost as if you summoned them just by thinking or talking about them.
These are just a few examples of synchronistic encounters. The circumstances and particulars change around a lot depending on the people and the scenario.
However, they do all share these characteristics in common.
These kinds of encounters can go both ways, too. For instance, you could be missing someone, and in that way you “manifest” them into your life.
The opposite could be true, that they were thinking about you and missing you, henceforth bringing the two of you together. In most cases, it’s a joint effort.
The universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes a synchronistic encounter is the strongest sign you’ll ever see to tell you that someone has been missing you.
If you have a lot of synchronistic encounters with someone, it could be a sign that you have a deep metaphysical connection with them. Here are 19 more signs that you might have a deep metaphysical connection with someone.
8) Fortune cookie or repeating numbers
It’s often the most random elements of chance in our life that can give us the most insight.
Let me use a fortune cookie as an example:
These little cookies have aphorisms written on little pieces of paper hidden inside of them. They are printed, selected, and packaged at random. There’s no inherent meaning in that.
However, some of the most useful advice I’ve ever found in my day-to-day life has come from fortune cookies. They’ve provided valuable insight, thoughtful messages, and even clarity regarding my future.
So if your fortune cookie reminds you of someone or inspires you to reconnect with someone, it could be a sign from the universe that they’re missing you, and that maybe it’s time to reconnect.
In a similar way, repeating numbers can give you a lot of insight into whether or not someone is missing you.
Here’s a great article talking about the power of seeing triple numbers in your life and what the different sets of numbers mean.
If you’re seeing a lot of repeating numbers in your life, it’s often the universe giving you a sign.
Do some personal research on the meaning behind the repeating numbers you see, and you might just find that it has to do with someone missing you.
9) Connection through a stranger
Everything in the universe is linked and connected through some form of channel.
These cause-and-effect relationships bring us all together. It’s one of the chief reasons why we’re able to tell when someone is missing us. Or when someone can tell we’re missing them.
Like one big tapestry or spider web, everything is interconnected. So when one end of the string vibrates, the other end can feel it, too.
A way the universe likes to bring people together is to connect them through a stranger, the same stranger.
As an example, I’ll use the experience of Francesca C. Simon, who relates a story regarding a physical therapist. After having been in an accident, she visited a new masseuse to help her pain.
Before this, she had been putting off old friends and her to-do list for far too long. As soon as she finished her massage, she messaged an old friend, who she had been missing and needed to catch up with.
After they reconnected, it became clear that they had both seen the same masseuse within a small window of time.
In that way, then, the universe brought two people together, pushing a reconnection, all with the help of a complete stranger.
There is no end to the connectivity we have with the people and things around us.
Keep a sharp eye out for signs of all kinds. You never know, before long you’ll have the clearest of signs that someone is missing you, right in front of you.
Deciphering whether or not someone is missing you might seem a daunting task at first but the universe can send us revealing signs when we need them most.
If you keep a sharp eye out for them, they’ll be easy to identify.
Whether it’s a vivid dream about the person who misses you or facing random mood changes, it could be because someone is missing you. Perhaps you find an important artifact or feather, maybe you receive thoughts out of the blue.
It could be you accidentally used this person’s name in the strangest of scenarios. Goosebumps out of nowhere, synchronistic encounters, and repeating numbers, these could all be spiritual signs that someone is missing you.
Once you know the signs, you can keep a sharp eye out for them. And remember, thoughts become things, so a reconnection might be here sooner than you think.
