When it comes to spirits and the afterlife there theories and beliefs about what happens next. People generally fall into one of two groups; those who believe in a spiritual afterlife and those who do not. Nobody really knows where our spirit goes when it leaves our body
Many people find comfort in knowing their loved one is up in Heaven, and that their loved ones are sometimes able to send messages and signs that they are still around us.
No one truly knows for certain what actually happens when we cease to exist or where our spirit goes when it leaves our body.
The energy of the person who has passed on can still come into our reality and speak to us. In fact, it’s incredibly common for these signs to happen.
Despite all the uncertainty, many people from all over the world and all walks of life believe that they have been contacted by the spirit of a loved one after they had passed.
Perhaps you are one of them. Most people report feeling a special type of presence near to them, one that is unlike any other they’ve ever experienced before.
Our loved ones love to send us signs along our path, and can put signs into another’s path as a way to communicate with us as well.
They communicate with us indirectly and if you’re familiar with what to look for, and are open to the whole idea of spiritual connectivity, then you can pick up on these signs and know what each one means.
We just have to make sure to pay attention to our surroundings or these signs can easily be missed.
These direct methods of communication can occur anywhere and at any time. They can be received when you are fully awake, or in a twilight state of dreaming.
Here are six signs that your deceased loved one may be using to try and connect with you.
1) You Can Sense Their Presence:
This usually manifests as a sudden drop in temperature or a slight chill meaning the spirit of a loved one is nearby. The next time you feel it happen, embrace it.
2) Lights Flicker and Electronic Devices Act Up:
Many report strange electrical activity when deceased friends or family members are close by, such as a flickering light or television set, an appliance suddenly turning on, or an electronic device inexplicably beginning to beep or make noise.
When these types of things occur out of the blue with seemingly no explanation, this means a loved one’s spirit is attempting to gain your attention and let you know they are present.
3) You Dream About Them:
It’s often believed that your dreams tell you something important. These dreams can contain messages or answers to questions you’ve been searching for. Don’t ignore them, it’s guidance, advice, and comfort coming from your loved one.
4) Familiar Scents:
Spirits use smells that are special to us because we immediately notice and pay attention to them.
People commonly report smelling the scent of a deceased loved one. Some say they still catch whiffs of that person’s unique smell.
5) The Sudden Appearance of Random Things:
Many people claim that objects such as feathers or coins that you find in random spots may not be so random after all.
The spirits of our loved ones will often stick pennies, nickels, quarters, and other loose change in unusual places knowing that we’ll stumble across them. They do this as a way to help make us feel happy and to signal that they’re close by.
6) You Just Feel and Know They Are With You:
There doesn’t always need to be a sign for you to stop and think about a deceased loved one. You can sense and feel a spirit is present and guiding you.
A feeling you automatically attribute to the spirit of a loved one. When this occurs, and should it ever happen to you, it’s never scary or unsettling, rather it is reassuring and welcome.

The Following Is My Personal Experience With The Loss of a Loved One:
I never was a person who believed that after someone dies, that it would be possible to feel their presence in any way.
I thought that people who talked about these experiences had memories so strong and missed their loved one so much, that they imagined their presence in a way that felt so real. That is…until I lost my grandmother.
On many mornings after she died, (for years) I would reach for my coffee mug and would feel as if someone gave my arm a reassuring squeeze. The first times I would look around, thinking my husband was there, and was stunned to see he wasn’t.
Later on, I would smell her famous apple pie, at the same moments. Perhaps this was all in my head, but it happened on so many different occasions in the same way, that I actually began to believe she was looking over me in some protective way.
Grieving is a very long process, that is most acute in the first few years that you lose someone whom you love, but it truly does go on in different forms for the rest of one’s life. Whether you are someone who has some belief in the paranormal, or just don’t know. Let us know if you’ve felt any of these.
A few years later my dad died at the young age of 70, only 8 months after being diagnosed with the killer cancer of the pancreas, I was still pretty skeptical about people who professed to feel the presence of a loved one who had passed.
I wrote it off to their imagination tricking them, due to the pain of their feelings of loss.
Although my parents had moved to Chicago, and I remained in New York, we saw each other quite a bit; my dad and I were early risers, so we often spoke by phone as we drank our morning coffee.
There was so much that I missed about no longer being able to actually talk with him, especially our “coffee talk”. After his death I was so emotionally spent, that I felt nothing for a while.
One morning after preparing my coffee, I sat down and began drinking as I stared at the bare trees of winter. I felt a pat on my back, and looked around assuming my husband had entered the room…no one was there!
This kind of thing would happen as I would drink my morning coffee, for many years after my dad passed. Part of me thought this was all in my head because I just missed him so much.
One day I smelled his after-shave, as I nervously was getting ready for an important interview…somehow I just knew that he had been watching over me and made his presence known in this way. I broke down in tears of relief and appreciation.
t has been my experience, as well as that reported by many who have suffered the loss of someone very dear to them, that grief is not something you just get over.
It is more painful in the beginning (first few years), but actually continues throughout the course of your life. Unless you have had the experience of a deceased love one making their presence known, you might not believe in this otherworldly experience.
Whether you are a believer in such paranormal events or not, I think you will find the video you are about to watch, thought-provoking. It’s discussion of people’s reports of how they have experienced the presence of their loved ones who have passed, is varied and certainly is open for interpretation.
The intriguing ways people are “touched” by those who have died include
Twenty two years ago Julie Kemp was driving with her husband Andy and 8 year old son Landon. The family was headed home from church when an ambulance, not in emergency mode, slammed into them at an intersection.
Andy died instantly while Julie, although unconscious, was stabilized by first responders. In all the chaos the rescuers didn’t even know that Landon was still in the crumpled up car because the damage was so severe that they couldn’t see him in the back seat.
Fortunately, by a stroke of luck someone spotted one of his shoes laying on the road and they worked quickly to get him out. When they finally freed Landon, he was not breathing, but medics managed to resuscitate him.
He was flown to the Carolinas Medical Center and on the way, he had to be resuscitated again, and when he arrived at the hospital, they had to bring him back to life for a third time.
His prognosis was grim, and doctors told his mother that if Landon did make it, he would likely not be able to walk or eat on his own and that he’d be like an 8 year old child for the rest of his life.
Two weeks later a miracle happened. Landon woke up, opened his eyes, and was able to communicate clearly. He was not brain damaged at all. Now Julie had to tell him the heartbreaking news that his father had died.
Wanting to be as gentle as possible, Julie asked her son if he knew where his father was. Landon said he knew and that he saw his father in heaven. His mother was stunned when he went on to say that he also saw two family friends who had passed and two of her other children as well in heaven.
At first, she was confused by this then remembered that before she had him, she’d miscarried twice.
She had never told Landon about those losses because he was still too young to understand. She couldn’t explain any of what he told her and so she took it as proof that Landon had been to heaven.
Through all of the heartbreak and loss she’d experienced in the last couple of weeks, she found comfort in the thought and her faith in God was renewed.
Many people have claimed to have gone to heaven and then come back. Many of these experiences involve near death accidents and tragedies, where people see loved ones who have passed and then are sent back to Earth because their time is not yet up.
They could very well be seeing the afterlife and heaven, those who see it are convinced of that, and the evidence is compelling no matter what you believe.
