Signs someone is thinking about you — how to tell and what you should do next


Has someone been on your mind lately? Did a thought of them suddenly pop in your head? Maybe you dreamt about them. Don’t be so quick to blow it off. In fact, you might be telepathically picking up on signs someone is thinking about you.

The thoughts that run through our minds can tell us so, so much — if we are willing to pay attention to what they are trying to tell us. Instead, we often numb our senses and block out our thoughts by doing mindless things such as watching too much television, staying busy and distracting ourselves with drama and chaos. Don’t get me started on how social media can blunt our senses and keep us from experiencing our intuition! But telepathic communication is real.

Sometimes you could have a thought about someone that is particularly meaningful. In these cases, it’s not a simple matter of that person popping up in your mind.

Rather, it could be that the person is thinking about you and you are picking that thought up telepathically.

This is particularly common with soulmate relationships, since soulmates can often read each others’ thoughts.

So how can you tell when someone is thinking about you?

Psychic signs someone is thinking about you

The thought comes out of the blue

Sometimes it makes sense to think about someone. In fact, it could be logical. For example, if you and an old friend always ordered a particular dessert, and you go to a restaurant and see that dessert on the menu, it would make sense for you to then think of that particular friend. Chances are, in that situation, the person is not thinking about you. You’re just having a normal thought that was triggered by a current experience.

Signs someone is thinking of you

But if a thought of someone comes to you suddenly with no warning, and there’s nothing currently going on that would bring this person to mind, that could indicate something else altogether. In this case, the person may have you in their thoughts. This is particularly true if it is someone that you have not thought about in a long time.

There is no emotional charge

Often when someone is thinking about you there will be an emotional charge to the thought. You may think suddenly of someone you broke up with romantically or a friend who is no longer in your life. It would make sense for you to feel emotion about the person. You may feel sad or even angry because your thoughts tend to bring about emotion.

But what if you randomly think of someone who you were emotionally connected to and you feel nothing? Sure, it could be that you no longer care about the person. But it could also mean that you’re picking up on their thoughts, not your own. And if the thoughts aren’t your own, they are less likely to feel emotional.

You feel uncomfortable when the thought comes up

Sometimes we can sense someone’s thoughts about us and it can make us feel uncomfortable. Say you sense that someone is thinking about you sexually. Maybe you suddenly feel vulnerable. Whether such sexual thoughts would be welcome or uncomfortable would likely depend on your feelings about the person. Your intuition may literally be responding to what it’s picking up on. Pay special attention to any feelings of discomfort that come up when a person comes to mind.  

What should you do if you notice signs someone is thinking about you

Whether you should do anything when you sense that someone is thinking about you is a personal decision. You may wonder: should you reach out to that person or should you do nothing?

Pay attention to the emotions that the thoughts bring up. In some cases, it may be an opportunity to reconnect with a person from your past. In other cases it may be something that’s good to acknowledge, and then let go.

If thoughts persist, and you find yourself thinking a lot about someone who you rarely think about, it could be a good idea to call that person as they may have a strong desire to talk to you.

What if you want to keep that person out of your thoughts and life?

Sometimes someone may be thinking about you and you want nothing to do with that person. In that case, those signs that someone is thinking of you are undesired. We’ve all been there. You can use psychic protection strategies to put something of a barrier between you and this person.

To do so, try the following:

  1. Find some time when you can be alone and undisturbed for about 10 minutes.
  2. Sit in a comfortable chair or lie down.
  3. Close your eyes and breathe deeply.
  4. Visualize yourself surrounded by a clear bubble.
  5. Visualize the person’s thoughts about you bouncing back off of the bubble and going back to them.
  6. Set the intention that any connections between you and that person be broken.
  7. Thank the Universe for helping you in this endeavor.

I personally like to mix metaphysical strategies with head-based ones. If I am detecting thoughts from a past love who I am ready to move on from, I might take steps to move on to a new relationship. For example, I might sign up for online dating.

What if you don’t know what to do?

So what do you do if you’ve picked up on signs someone is thinking about you? Sometimes constant thoughts about someone can make us confused. Does the fact that we’re thinking about an ex mean that the ex is thinking about us and wants us back? Are thoughts of a possible reconciliation keeping you from moving on with a new relationship? Sometimes a little clarity can help us move forward in our lives and make necessary changes.

Whenever I feel particularly confused, I can’t depend on my own conclusions. I may say I’m going to take a certain course of action one day and then change my mind and say I’m going to do the opposite the next day. In other words, I’ll be all over the place. When that happens I feel stuck and don’t know where to turn.

It’s then that I either contact a psychic friend and ask whether they have any insights into my situation or I might reach out to a professional psychic for a reading.

How to get psychic answers

Before I do anything, I set the intuition that I be led to the person or being who will have the answers for me. Sometimes I also use a few techniques to get more answers from my Spirit Guides

If you have friends who are interested in metaphysics and psychic ability, they may be able to recommend a psychic for you to go to. Ask them if they’ve had a particularly good reading.

If you don’t know anyone to go to in person, you can try an online psychic.

I personally like to either get a recommendation or see someone in action before I spend money on a reading.  Oranum lets you chat with a psychic for free so you can get a feel for whether you like the person’s energy before you decide on paying for a reading.

Simply join Oranum for free, and then you can see what psychic you feel drawn to.

If someone is truly thinking long and hard about you, they may be getting ready to re-enter your life.
