15 spiritual signs your life is headed towards a positive change

“We are restless because of incessant change, but we would be frightened if change were stopped.” – Lyman Lloyd Bryson

It’s hard to imagine what our lives would be like without the mystical variable we call change.

From starting new jobs or love affairs to changing our schedules and perspective on life, we all go through daily and seasonal shifts.

Some are major, some are small, but however they’re perceived is up to you — whether you’re optimistic about your future or feeling lost in the present.

This blog post will cover the spiritual 15 signs that can be seen if your life is heading towards a positive change – from the physical to the mental side of things.

1) An increasing gratitude that holds no grudges

We’re forever reminded to be grateful for what we have.

In moments of great gratitude, we’re able to take a step back and see what more there is to be thankful for.

It’s a simple mantra that has been ingrained in the western mind, but one that can have life-changing consequences when taking time to reflect.

Gratitude is the key to happiness and an increase in this factor can prove that you’re heading in the right direction.

So, if you’re noticing yourself becoming more grateful, know that the cycle of life has started anew.

The way you see things change with this shift in perspective.

In fact, appreciation and thankfulness are said to change the chemicals released in your brain, giving you a happier outlook on life and producing more positive thoughts and feelings.

2) The rise of balanced positivity

There’s a sweet spot of bright emotions, and it’s your duty to ensure you’re in it. When you feel happy, everything else follows suit.

But there’s always a catch: when one of your other emotions is absent or less than neutral, it has a ripple effect on the others and pushes you out of balance.

Imagine this feeling is like a boat — if your balance is right and everything is going well, chances are you’re heading straight for your destination.

However, should you feel unhappy or angry, things can take a turn for the worst.

You could find yourself having a negative outlook on life, which will eventually make you feel unproductive and unhappy about yourself.

This is where you’ll start to see a shift in your life — you’ll no longer feel happy and joyful, but instead, negative, and seemingly lost.

The unbalance will create friction on the boat, making it harder to row the way you want.

Let me tell you a secret: It’s time to regain the balance and make your boat upright again!

The first step is simply being aware of your emotions and how they’re affecting your life.

Once you have this awareness, you can work on bringing them back into balance.

3) Chronic difficulties may be over because the world around you has changed

Your surroundings are usually a reflection of how you feel on the inside. And in order to progress in life, you need some kind of obstacle.

How else would you know you want something if there was nothing challenging your mind or pushing your limits?

This is where difficulties come into play — when we feel as though our lives are taking a turn for the worst, it often means our unconscious mind wants us to go on a journey and meet new challenges.

You may be losing a loved one, going through a divorce, or experiencing financial struggles — anything that gets your attention and makes you take notice.

This is your opportunity to rise above these difficulties and take the next step towards your destiny.

It can be difficult to notice things you’ve been oblivious to earlier in life, but it’s important that you pay attention to what’s going on around you.

Changes are necessary for growth, which makes it a useful catalyst that can push you towards a better life and mindset.

Now you might be thinking – What changes exactly?

Well, only you can find this out by digging deeper into your soul and heart.

In fact, even your name and birth date can reveal a lot about your life and the decisions you should make.

4)  A better understanding of your mistakes

Once you’ve made a mistake, it’s important to learn from it, rather than beating yourself up about it.

Through understanding our faults and mistakes, we’re able to grow into better versions of ourselves.

One way we can do this is by examining the mistakes we’ve made in our past and what we should have done differently.

Once you’re aware of this, you’ll be able to correct your actions and improve yourself in the future.

The next step is to accept that you’re a work in progress and that there’s still room for you to grow as a person, so don’t beat yourself up about what happened.

Mistakes are part of the learning process and make you stronger in the end, but only if you learn from them.

Sometimes, we’re presented with similar situations that we stumbled through previously — this is your opportunity to not repeat those mistakes and improve.

“Sometimes you hit a point where you either change or self-destruct.”- Sam Stevens

5) Opening up to new friendships or relationships

This is a great sign!

While it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re in a romantic relationship, new friendships can be likened to one.

This is because new relationships allow you to grow, learn and get support from others.

Think of it as a healthy part of the journey that makes your life better — like being on an exercise routine or working out in the gym.

The key is to take it seriously and make sure everything’s going well.

If you’ve started to keep your relationships in perspective, new friendships will soon follow.

Not only is it an added benefit of these relationships, but you can also learn a lot about yourself through them.

This can be beneficial for personal growth and self-improvement, so you don’t want to overlook this sign!

6) Sharing your passions with others

This is one of the clues that tell you that everything is about to change for the better — people will start noticing how passionate you are about something.

This makes you a joy to be around and will catch everyone’s attention.

Through further expansion, more people will find out about your passion for what you do, which can lead to new opportunities and connections.

The result is growth in your life that can make a big difference, especially when it comes to self-improvement and personal development.

The most beneficial way of approaching this transition is by embracing it with open arms.

When you’re feeling energized, this is also an indication that you’re moving in the direction of what you need, which makes it easier for things to happen organically.

And as long as you’re passionate about what you do, the change should come naturally.

7) Letting go of unnecessary things that cause you to stress or worry

If you’re having trouble getting rid of these things, it’s probably because they were important at one time, but you’ve outgrown them.

Whether it’s the start of a new job, relationship, or lifestyle change — this is how it should be. At this point, you don’t want to hold on to anything that doesn’t feel right for you anymore.

Once you let go of things being a burden to your life and are constantly feeling relaxed and light, the world will seem better.

The result is a rewarding, pleasurable life that gives you peace of mind and pleasure in abundance.

But when it comes to your personal spiritual journey, which toxic habits have you unknowingly picked up?

Is it the need to be positive all the time? Is it a sense of superiority over those who lack spiritual awareness?

In this eye-opening video, the shaman Rudá Iandé explains how so many of us fall into the toxic spirituality trap. He himself went through a similar experience at the start of his journey.

As he mentions in the video, spirituality should be about empowering yourself.

8) Stress levels that are shrinking

If you’re starting to feel less stress in your life, it’s a hint from the universe that everything is finally falling into place.

This can be a difficult time because it means you need to let go of what’s no longer working for you and embrace a new path.

On the other hand, there’s no need to worry about things anymore because you’ve learned to let go and accept what happens in your life.

This is a very happy time, so there’s no need to worry about anything — just enjoy the ride!

When things begin to change for the better, your stress and worry will begin to slowly fade away.

This can also mean that there’s nothing holding you back from achieving what you want.

9) Having meaningful conversations with people you’d like to get to know better

This is a sign that your social life is improving — no longer are you limited to the same group of friends or people you interact with on a daily basis.

The result is a new group of people you can relate to, who make you feel comfortable around. These people quickly become a big part of your life and make you truly happy.

Not only is this a sign that things are improving, but it can also tell you that something big is on the horizon.

In this scenario, you’ll want to give yourself the best chance possible by getting to know people who make you content.

By doing this, the possibilities will be endless, and your personal growth will be enhanced. You never know where these new friends will take you!

10) A new outlook on life that’s starting to make you feel better about yourself and the world

Regardless of what’s happening in your life at the moment, this is a favorable omen.

There are no more expectations — you’re giving up control and letting go, which is great for your mental and emotional state.

As long as you have people who support your emotional state and your mind is clear, this is the green flag the universe is waving in front of you, telling you that things are improving.

This is one of the best feelings to experience because there’s no more worry or stress — you’re finally starting to understand where life’s headed and why things worked out.

Ultimately, everyone knows what the future holds for them, but not everyone takes this information seriously.

If you’re ready for it and want it to happen, it will most certainly show up on your path!

11) Significant changes in your perception

You can tell that things are improving when you start feeling either more positive or negative towards certain people, places, or things.

One way of telling that this is a good sign is by being realistic about what you’re thinking and feeling.

If all of sudden opinions or thoughts about something change for the better, it’s a good idea to pay closer attention to your instincts.

This is because your intuition will lead you in the right direction if you listen to it and embrace the change that’s unfolding.

12) The natural clock feels more aligned with the night and day cycle

When things are finally working out in your favor, you’ll start feeling tired on a regular basis — this is because you’re giving yourself time to rest.

This is the sign that you’re making things happen and it’s working out — life’s on your side!

You’ll know that things are improving when you’re sleeping longer, waking up feeling refreshed, and getting enough daily sleep.

This is because you’re in control of your emotions and your mind is clear.

For those who don’t know, rest is very important — it rejuvenates your body and mind so you can work better.

You’ll want to make sure you’re getting enough sleep in order to take advantage of this powerful, yet simple sign that things are getting better.

13) A time of self-reflection when you’re asking yourself the “big questions”

This is a powerful sign that can tell you whether your life is working out for the better or not.

When you’re asking yourself these questions and trying to figure out how to answer them, you’ll notice that there are no solid answers.

All you know is that life is uncertain, but you’ll want to make something happen regardless.

You can tell that things are remodeling if you feel like taking the first step towards creating change when you’re no longer content with how things are working out and want to adjust the status quo.

It’s a way of challenging yourself to get better, which makes it easier to reach your goals and learn things on your own.

Remember that knowledge is power, so there’s no better time to learn what you need to know than now!

14) A burning desire to know more about yourself and your life

When you’re ready to improve, this is the time when you’ll notice more diversity in your mental state.

You’ll feel as though there’s a burning desire inside of you that’s getting stronger and stronger.

This will make it easier for you to get things done regardless of how busy or stressed you are.

Nothing is holding you back from improving, so there’s no need to stress about things anymore because you’ve got the perfect plan for taking control.

Your mind will be at ease and life will unfold in the way you want it to.

This is a great time because nothing’s going to hold you back from achieving your goals.

It’s also a sign that you’re living your dream!

If this sounds like something that could benefit you, then simply start your own personal development program.

15) Acknowledging your fears and then taking the first step towards overcoming them

If you’re feeling afraid or unsure, this could be a signal that something is about to happen in your personal life for the better.

This is because you’ll be able to identify the things that scare you and then face them head-on.

It’s a good idea to pay attention to these things because they’ll teach you how to get past them, as well as understand yourself better.

While it’s true that certain things will always scare you, eventually you’ll learn why they’re happening to you and how to overcome them.

As long as the things in your life are becoming clearer, this is a prediction that things are improving.

You shouldn’t be afraid because things will work out for you, so embrace it!

“Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.”

― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Final thoughts

We hope these 15 signs will help guide you through the craziness in life and help bring back some positivity into your life when needed.

It’s important to take life on as it comes and not try to rush things into a positive change too quickly.

It’s also important to take time for yourself when needed, by doing things that make you happy, or seeing people that make you happy, or being at peace with yourself.

Life can be unpredictable, but it’s a whole lot better when you’re ready for the best. If you aren’t sure what the best is for you, though, how will you ever know?

Everyone knows that life is different for everyone, but just because your situation might be hard to handle, this doesn’t mean there’s no hope.

It all happens at its own pace and there are many things that are out of our control … but in reality, we do have a choice.

I also know that constantly wondering whether your life is heading in the right direction can be a challenge, and I want to encourage you to never give up.
