Let me first say, being guided by the Universe is not a doing thing but a feeling thing. It isn't a knowing thing, it is a feeling thing. The key word here is feeling. Once you master the feeling thing, you will notice the signs so ever clearly.
Start with not overdoing. Be patient while you wait for the signs. You will tend to want to control what comes, stop acting on your impulses. Allow time to unfold the sweetness which will be more real and authentic. Make sure to take the time to check in with yourself. Get in touch with your feelings. Do what makes you feel light and stop all behavior that is draining you. Disconnect from all forms of media for a few hours a day, not even a book. Just be alone and do nothing.
Meditate. Go for a walk. Declutter. Get a massage. Do things that connects you to your feelings, not your thoughts. The more you listen to your feelings, the more obvious the signs will become. You have to devote to recognize them and spending time alone with them. Once you become comfortable with the feeling, you can use the signs from the universe's guidance to start creating the life you truly want.
