Finding oneself. #SoulfulSunday

You only have to find yourself. Everything else, you can Google.”

I came across this quote this morning. It set me thinking, nay wondering, how the Universe knew this is what I have been pondering since some time now!

But, the Universe does that, you know, to wake us up from our slumber, to nudge us towards the right path, the one that will help us discover ourselves and learn something important about our life, to strive to become better versions of ourselves, to use the time we have been given here to the best of our ability.

I am a firm believer of the fact that the Universe communicates with us all the time. 

Sometimes, its messages come like a bolt from the blue, when we are least expecting it, sometimes subtly, too, like whispers that come riding on the cool, evening breeze, and sometimes through signs that come to us precisely when we need them. 

If we notice these signs, take the messages seriously, well and good. If we don’t, it’s our loss. 

Usually, we are too occupied, too ignorant to notice the signs, listen to the messages, pay heed. That’s how we lose so many golden opportunities, make stupid mistakes and lousy choices and land up in a mess we find tough to get out of.

I can imagine the Universe shaking its head, sympathetically, sadly, like a mother who is left disheartened because of the ways in which her children err. 

But, on the rare occasions that we do pay heed to its advice, I am sure the Universe rejoices. 

All the answers we have been searching, all the things that work out for us, all the problems that get solved easily, all the baseless fears that haunt us but which get nipped in the bud—these are all signs that the Universe is glad we paid heed to its messages and took the right steps, made the right decisions.

And, it’s at such moments that we find ourselves. Find the purpose of our life. Find the things we are meant to do in this life because those are the things that give us true happiness, the intuition that, yes, this is what I was meant to do!

So, let’s keep our eyes and our ears wide open. Let’s be alert for the signs that the Universe sends our way and let’s grab those signs, understand them and follow the advice that comes straight from the Universe—the one that truly cares for us, about us.

For, in those signs are hidden answers to our questions. We will know it, intuitively, for that’s how the Universe communicates. 🙂



This post is a writing exercise that I, along with my friends, Esha and Vinitha follow every Sunday. A 10 minute (or more) writing exercise wheh we write whatever comes to our mind. An exercise that gets our mind working, our fingers moving.

Do you know the secret to living a happy life? Eat. Pray. Love. Or, watch what you eat, wish well for all and fill your heart with love! That's precisely what I try to do through my blogs: 'Metanoia', the wellness blogazine, and 'Fictionista', my blog for fiction and non-fiction. Welcome to my virtual homes!

  1. You are right, Shilpa, the Universe is always communicating with us. We get so much engrossed in other nitty-gritty of life and fail to notice when the message comes calling. Tuning into our intuition will help us maintain the relation with the Universe. I believe the Universe is watching out for us. So glad to read this post. 🙂

    1. Yes, Vini. We get so involved with life. We so need to sometimes just pause and listen. It’s unbelievable how much the Universe communicates all the time!
      Thanks so much, dear!


  2. So true, Shilpa. The universe is always listening to us and now we also know it speaks to us too, even in clear words bypassing the signs, whispers, visions where we have to mostly rely on our intuition. Staying in a highly intuitive state is not always possible given the fact we get busy and distracted with work and life. I wish you find lots of love from hearing the universe speak to you ❤️❤️❤️
