16 telepathic signs someone is currently thinking of you

Think about a particular person who means a lot to you.

Do you ever wonder if you’re also on their mind?

If you share a deep telepathic connection with someone, it’s possible that you can intuitively understand their thoughts and feelings without words or other physical ways of communication.

In fact, with strong ties like that, you might even get to sense if they’re thinking of you.

Wanna find out? We’re here to help!

Here are 16 telepathic signs that someone is currently thinking of you:

1) They have frequent appearances in your dreams

Dreams are pretty weird (and awesome) stuff.

You’re bombarded with visuals, sounds, and even though you’re asleep, your brain is on overdrive and you can even feel strong emotions.

Is there someone who’s been frequently showing up in your dreams? This may be a manifestation that someone is thinking of you.

It could be that this person’s desire to contact you has gotten so strong that they were able to manifest themselves into your life, even if it’s just through your dreams.

Corinne Vockla, a Quora user, shared an experience she had with her dad. She had gone backpacking in Australia and for several nights, she had dreams about her dad. She felt like he was trying to tell her something.

At the time, she didn’t think much of it. When she went home to Europe, where her family lived, it was then she found out her dad had been sick during the time he had been appearing in her dreams.

Her family never told her since they didn’t want to worry her, but her dad had actually been in the hospital worried and stressed that he was never going to see her again.

After she learned this, she understood why she’d been having those dreams.

2) You’ve got that real big energy (boost)

Imagine this: It’s a beautiful day. You’re out for a lovely walk, maybe on your way to get a cup of coffee somewhere.

Suddenly, you feel a jolt of energy. Even without the caffeine boost, your mood just suddenly goes “Kaboom!” and “Yeehaw!”.

You feel lighter and happier. Things are suddenly brighter. You feel a rush of positive emotions and you may even find yourself smiling.

What on earth could this mean?

Well, it could actually mean that you’re feeling someone else’s energy directed towards you because they’ve been thinking about you in a positive way.

3) You feel their presence no matter how far away they are

Do you ever wonder why you feel as though someone is in the same room as you even if they aren’t there?

This isn’t meant in a creepy way, of course!

It might actually be a sign that someone is attempting to manifest you in their life.

Manifestation is about putting intentional energy to attain one’s goals. A manifestation technique, for example, is visualization.

When this happens, the person closes their eyes to focus on imagining what their life would look like as though they’ve already gotten what they wanted.

If you feel their presence, perhaps they are visualizing that they are on your mind and that you’re in the same room as them.

4) You feel it in your fingers, you feel it in your toes

That love is all around you, and so the feeling grows.

Okay, wait! Totally not talking about the song “Love is All Around” by The Troggs, which was also featured in the Love Actually soundtrack. (In case you were curious or you were thinking of a movie to check out after reading this article).

​When someone is thinking about you, you may actually feel it in your fingers. Or your toes. Or any other part of your body.

It varies for different people, of course. For some, it manifests as a tingling feeling at the back of your neck.

For other people, their palms might itch or they might get goosebumps. It can also be a muscle twitch here and there.

While there could be other causes of these physical sensations, it might still be a possibility that it’s because someone’s been thinking about you a little extra.

5) You hear their voice

Have you ever missed someone so much that you heard their voice even though you were apart and currently not in contact?

Sounds strange and impossible, right? Well, who’s to say it can’t actually happen?

Quora user Anthony Jenkins shared an instance where he and his wife were apart and she randomly called him to ask if everything was okay.

Apparently, his wife doesn’t usually reach out and ask a question like that unless she had a feeling that something was wrong.

His wife explained that she called because she heard his voice call out to her. In that instance, they were an hour away from each other.

He was actually missing her a lot and given their strong connection, she sensed it and she heard his voice call out to her.

6) You see their face

It may just be a totally random occurrence for you, but is it really a coincidence?

If you have a telepathic connection with someone, it’s possible that there’s a strong spiritual force that’s pulling you together.

Corinne Vockla also shared another instance of telepathic connection with her dad on Quora.

Her dad had an accident and on the day it happened, she suddenly had a clear vision of him. She was waiting for the bus and all of a sudden, there he was. She could see him and feel the love that they had for each other.

When this happened, she was living in another country. Her dad died a week after the accident.

She felt that getting that vision of him and being able to express and feel all that love they had for each other was his soul reaching out to tell her he loved her.

7) You feel like something’s missing

When you have a strong connection with someone and they feel as though your absence is affecting them hard, you might actually feel the sense of loss they are feeling.

Have you ever felt like this? You suddenly feel like you’ve misplaced something important and you don’t know what it is.

If so, it might be a hint that someone is craving your presence.

8) You suddenly start seeing reminders of them everywhere

What would you do if this happened to you?

While driving, you flip through the radio channels and then suddenly, a song that reminds you of a certain someone starts playing.

What’s interesting is this person is something you haven’t really thought of for a while. During the course of your day, you begin to notice other things that remind you of them.

Other examples:

You overhear their name mentioned in a conversation by a group of strangers you just happened to sit beside at a cafe.

You notice someone is reading a copy of that person’s favorite book.

It’s as if your mind just opened up and even though that person’s not around, you feel as though they are there anyway.

Now, of course these can all be coincidences. But maybe, just maybe, it can also be a sign that someone’s been thinking about you.

If this is someone you also want to connect (or reconnect) with, you can also take it as a sign and send them a message.

9) They give you butterflies

Seeing butterflies can be a spiritual sign that signifies hope and new beginnings.

However, in some cultures, it is also believed to mean that a visit from a white butterfly in particular means that a departed loved one is thinking about you.

It might be their way of communicating with you from the afterlife so you know that they are okay.

10) Synchronicity (aka a glitch in the matrix!)

Have you ever received a particular message at the right time? Perhaps you have a best friend who moved away, and you’re going through something tough but they aren’t available at the moment.

Suddenly, you hear a song on the radio that reminds you of that person.

The song itself is all about looking on the bright side of life despite setbacks and that you just have to keep going.

Even though your best friend isn’t available, you still end up feeling better because it feels like it was a message from them.

And who knows? Maybe it actually was.

If someone is telepathically thinking about you, they are sending their energies out into the universe in the hopes of reaching you.

Other examples of synchronicity can be how you suddenly had the urge to call someone up only to have the other person say they were just thinking about you.

Or how you both encounter each other in person without meaning to.

These kinds of encounters can be considered as a sign of an incredible telepathic connection.

So much so that the Universe creates instances for you to be reminded of each other to keep that connection alive.

11) You feel tension in your neck and back

It is a fact of life that you’re not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, so whenever someone thinks about you, it may not always be in a positive light.

In the same way that you may suddenly feel a burst of lightness and a sense of ease when someone thinks about you fondly, you might also feel unpleasant sensations when someone thinks about you in a not-so-bright-and-shiny manner.

If someone is channeling a bunch of negative energy towards you, your body might actually tighten up as though attempting to protect itself.

Pay attention to the knots that may form and try to find ways to destress if this ever happens.

Since there’s really no way to actually confirm who’s sending some bad juju your way, focus on all the things you can control.

To loosen up, try to do some breathing exercises or take a walk. Think about the things that give you joy.

Listen to a mood-boosting playlist while you’re out on a walk or look for a mindfulness meditation podcast to help lift your spirits.

12) You feel restless

Do you find yourself unable to sit still?

Does your mind feel like it’s wandering and you’re having trouble focusing?

This kind of restlessness can be attributed to other issues you have going on, but if you find yourself feeling unsettled and your thoughts always seem to be drawn to a certain person, that might mean it’s because they’ve been thinking of you.

It may be your body’s way of informing you that energy’s being sent your way.

If this person is someone you have a good relationship with and it wouldn’t be intrusive for you to reach out, try giving them a call.

You may even get to confirm if they’re thinking about you, too.

13) You have a gut feeling about it

Here’s a fun fact: Based on a study by UPI.com, an average person knows around 42,000 words.

Yet despite having the ability to describe feelings, events, and experiences, sometimes, words will pale in comparison and you will just feel it in your gut.

It comes as a sudden flash of awareness, sometimes seemingly out of nowhere and right in the middle of you doing something else completely unrelated to that person.

When someone misses you or is thinking about you, you may actually inexplicably feel it and end up missing them, too.

Quora user Ayushi Thakur discussed her experience during a time when she had a friend she hadn’t been in contact with for a while, but then suddenly he was on her mind.

Suddenly, she received a message from him. He said he missed her.

Interestingly enough, this has also happened to her with other people in her life.

14) You involuntarily go “Atchoo!” multiple times

Do you find yourself having a sneeze-fest?

In some East Asian countries, it is believed that if someone is talking about you behind your back, it will cause you to sneeze loudly. In fact, the number of sneezes depends on whether or not something good or bad is about to happen.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • 1 sneeze = Someone is saying nice things about you
  • 2 sneezes in a row = Someone is saying bad things about you
  • 3 sneezes in a row = Someone is in love with you
  • 4 sneezes in a row = Something bad will happen to you or your family

Of course, you can take it with a grain of salt. After all, sometimes, a sneeze or two (or multiple ones) can just be due to allergies or you’re about to get a cold.

15) You suddenly feel like smiling for seemingly no reason at all

Have you ever found yourself suddenly having the urge to smile?

There are plenty of things to smile about, of course. You could be having a great day.

Maybe you just received an offer and you’re about to have your dream job.

Or the barista at the coffee shop gave you an extra cookie ‘just because’.

Or it could be because someone’s thinking of you.

16) You say their name accidentally

If you’re a fan of the show Friends, you’re going to be familiar with this scene:

“I, Ross, take thee, Rachel–”

For those who aren’t, here’s a little context: Ross is about to get married to his girlfriend Emily in London. His ex Rachel realizes that she still has feelings for him and she shows up at his wedding to tell him that he’s been on her mind.

But then Rachel sees how happy Ross looks so she just stays quiet.

Here’s the kicker: Ross actually ends up saying her name instead of Emily’s as he was getting married.

Now, this isn’t for sure a clear-cut example of telepathy since this is a TV show and it’s a fictional situation.

But it does illustrate something that can happen when two people have a strong connection.

When someone you have a strong connection with thinks about you, their name might be on the tip of your tongue because they’ve been thinking about you so much that you’ll be able to sense it energetically.


Associated with parapsychology and psychic phenomena, telepathy is a controversial topic that is often met with skepticism despite numerous attempts to investigate it over the years.

Despite the scientific uncertainty around it, there are still people who swear by the power of telepathy because of their personal experiences.

After all, there’s so much about the world and human consciousness that we still don’t know about.

If you’re reading this article because you’re currently thinking about someone and you’re hoping that they actually miss you, this might be a sign for you to initiate a chat as long as it’s something that will be good for the both of you.

If this person is someone who has passed and you want to believe that they are somehow still out there thinking of you, you can choose to believe that their love still lives on and that they are still with you – with or without the signs, as long as it helps with your healing process.

Ultimately, it all comes down to what you choose to believe.
