The Many Ways That Spirit Comes Through
Death is not an ending in connection, it just changes the way the Earth-bound and the Spirit-bound connect. No to freak you out, but our crossed-over loved ones are never far from us, and they like to drop by occasionally to just see how we are, to let us know they’re still around or that they’re happy, and they do it more often than you think. When we lose someone, communication doesn’t have to end, it just changes. There are no boundaries of time and space for spirit. There is also clear, straight-through communication that is not hindered by such earthly modern conveniences such as emails, phone calls that rely on power sources. There are no transportation issues – no one has to travel by train, plane or automobile. In fact our lines of communication become more direct, and the signs your deceased loved ones are reaching out to you are many. Let’s take a look at some of these signs.
Feeling Their Presence – the Sixth Sense
Even people who are skeptics of the paranormal will tell you that they occasionally sense something or feel something. They might say, “I have a good feeling about this,” or “I have a bad feeling about this,” and it’s often just talked up to the “gut,” but your “gut” is your intuitive self, your intuitive knowing.
We all have a natural sixth sense, and sometimes you can just feel someone’s presence. There’s that feeling that you’re not alone, and you may even have an idea which loved one is visiting you at that time. You may smell their perfume or hear a song they often sang come over the radio even though you haven’t heard it 10 years. Also, if you always knew when a specific person might call on the phone or drop by for an unexpected visit when they were alive, it’s likely that connection remains between you even though they’ve crossed over. Call out their name and say “hello” or “I love you,” and invite them to come by whenever they want.
This would be a really good time to mention that no one – visiting loved ones, friends, angels or spirit guides – will intrude on your privacy. And if you’re still not feeling sure about that, just make sure to declare when you want to be alone.
Tapping into Your Other Senses
When your deceased loved ones reach out to you, they have a number of ways to let you know they’re around. Sometimes they contact you through touch, smell, hearing and even sight. How they connect can depend on how they sense you’ll accept or reject the notion of their visit and also how strong they are in their spiritual “bodies.” Spirits know a lot – on the other side, everyone has a psychic sense that lets them know when someone is in need of their comfort or company. They can sense that although you might find comfort in smelling your mother’s perfume or hearing a song that you identify with a loved one, you might also freak-out if you saw them in spirit form. Luckily this isn’t a common occurrence as it takes a great amount of energy to appear that in true form, so while this may seem the most positive way to reach out to you and let you know it’s them, it’s also the most difficult.
Pennies from Heaven
Coins and other tiny objects like buttons or stones and even feathers can be signs that you’re loved ones are near. If you often see something like this in your path, it may be a sign that someone has come to visit.
Dimes and pennies are very common signs. If you’ve ever cleaned a floor and turned around just to find a coin on a place you’ve already gone over, you’ve probably been visited by someone with a sense of humor.
Signs come in many forms – we just have to be open to seeing them and not chalking them off as coincidence.
Bugs, Bird and Animals
Butterflies that flutter around you, brightly colored birds that seem to be signing to you only, oddly placed bugs that begged to be noticed – these can all be signs from loved ones from the other side. They don’t take over their bodies, they send them as messengers. If you’re thinking of your father who used to feed the birds every day and he had his favorite kinds, you may see those particular birds around either when you’re thinking of him or when he just wants to drop by and let you know “all is well.”
Everything is Energy
As mentioned earlier, it takes a great deal of energy for our loved ones to appear in full-body, form or as full-bodied apparitions as they are often called. On the other side, energy is simply energy – in fact, everything in our world is energy as well – they can move around with just a thought, but here on this dense plane we call Earth, physical signs require a huge amount of energy.
- Electrical energy is a powerful conduit, but one most used by someone who has just passed on and has not yet crossed over into full spirit form. In the days surrounding the loss of someone, lights may flicker, phones may ring – it’s simply your deceased loved one’s way of saying, “I’m still here.” Typically after they’ve said their goodbyes, they cross in a few days. However, these electrical phenomenons can happen even after someone has crossed. Even ghosts – people who haven’t crossed over for whatever reason – don’t have access to the energy that crossed over people do, so they must rely on energy sources we provide. This could be batteries, electrical currents and even our own human energy.
- When we want to contact someone on the other side, we may choose a psychic medium to be the conduit between worlds. You may be surprised to know though that your loved ones are sometimes even more anxious to contact you. Occasionally you’ll be sitting next to someone – you may or may not know them personally, but they’ll say something that sounds exactly like something a loved one would say. It’s not a possession; it’s more like borrowing someone’s phone for a few seconds, much the same way as when they appear through small birds or butterflies. The “messenger” is often unaware and always unharmed.
If you’ve ever asked directly for a sign of someone’s presence, you may see a sign within days or even minutes of asking. Small creatures and even flowers, like a rose growing in a snow storm, are all likely signs, especially if you’ve been specific in your request, but if you don’t get the sign you asked for, it doesn’t mean they’re not listening.
Your deceased loved ones can reach out to you in many ways, and they love doing it; they love when you notice and respond. And though it’s sad to lose someone in the physical world, we can take comfort in knowing that when someone crosses over, the borders and boundaries have all been removed and we can visit and chat whenever we like.
