Do Our Loved Ones Stay With Us in Spirit? I Think They Do

My husband was my soulmate. Even after losing him, I frequently feel his presence beside me.

Feeling Is Believing

If you have ever lost someone you truly loved, you may feel their presence with you still. Many times, they will also be leaving you signs that they are there with you or have called in for a visit. All those strange things that keep happening, in my view, can only add up to one thing: Your loved ones are letting you know that they haven't gone for good but have just stepped out of view for a while.

Sometimes your loved ones will come back to you in vivid dreams. Sometimes you will smell something you associate with them; it could be a whiff of their favorite perfume or aftershave, maybe even pipe tobacco. Other times, you may hear their voice, feel the warmth of their presence, or have the overpowering feeling that they have just walked into the room. Everyone's experiences are different, but my advice is to accept these occurrences with pleasure, not fear. Know it's just their way of trying to let you know you are not alone and that they are with you still.

At first it may be hard to bear the feeling of their presence and not being able to see or touch them, but it will get easier and eventually give you comfort.

For many years now, I have felt the spirit of my late husband with me, and the love we shared while he was alive is wrapped all around me like a snuggly blanket. I can honestly say that I rarely feel lonely—alone, yes, but there's a big difference between that and loneliness.

Some People Will Think We Are Crazy

Of course, there will be those who think people who believe in such things are completely crazy, and that we generate these feelings of our departed loved one's presence to make ourselves feel better. I can understand this way of thinking. Let's face it. You either believe in these things, or you don't (unless the jury is out and you are sitting on the fence).

It is an undeniable fact that there is no way of proving beyond doubt that these spiritual events do actually happen. But I believe that once you have felt the presence of your loved one or loved ones, there can be no mistake that they really are with you in spirit.

My own experiences and feelings tell me when my Hearty drops in on a visit. The feeling I get is so strong that it's like he has actually just walked into the room.

His Promise to Return

I think my husband must have been psychic himself as he had seen various spirits throughout his life, both human and animal, and told me he actually felt his departed mother giving him a clip around the ear from time to time when he had done something out of line.

Shortly before his death, he made me the promise that if there was any way he could come back to me, he would, and I believe that he does. I often tell people, "Oh, Hearty's just come in," simply because it feels like he has.

By the way, Hearty isn't his real name (just my pet name for him).

I Believe I Felt His Spirit Starting to Cross Over

When there was no denying that he was losing his battle with cancer, I had the strangest feeling that I was shrinking, and that when he died, I would become invisible altogether. I felt like Alice after drinking the shrinking potion or, as a good friend described it, "Like that dot that used to appear on TVs when you turned them off way back when we were kids." The dot gradually faded until it disappeared altogether. It was a very strange feeling indeed, as though I was fading away.

I have given this a lot of thought over the years, and now I think that our bond was so strong and our spirits so linked that as his illness progressed he was starting to cross over into the spirit world, and my spirit was feeling this journey along with his.

Everyone did say we were soulmates.

His Family in Spirit Came to Take Him by the Hand

On the morning he was admitted into the hospital for what I knew in my heart would be the final time, I clung on to the hope that he would recover. He asked me if there had been anyone else but us in the ambulance. When I replied, "No, just us and the driver," he clearly didn't believe a word of it.

By this time, he was taking morphine and was weak and confused, but I couldn't help feeling that he was seeing those waiting to take him by the hand to lead him from this life to the next. This feeling became even stronger when he later asked who all the people were standing around his bed.

When he died 5 days later, I found the thought of him passing into the company of loved ones something of a comfort. My feeling was that there were smiling members of his family and friends, maybe even pets, waiting in the light to love him and take his hand when he could no longer feel mine.

After the Battle Comes Peace

Anyone who has lost a loved one to cancer, any cruel and painful disease or illness, or through accident or natural causes will know just how hard a thing it is to get through, both for the sufferer and those around them.

If you have lost a loved one who suffered greatly before dying, your first feeling when they pass can be a mixture of both deep sorrow and relief that they are no longer suffering.

The first time I went along to see my Hearty just after he died, I really didn't think I could go through with seeing him in a coffin. But, my need to just see his face again overrode my fear. Even though he died in my arms, it still took a lot for me to see him again that first visit.

However, I began to realize on subsequent visits that the body I was looking at was just a shell. He wasn't there anymore. This feeling got stronger and stronger until the last visit before his funeral, when I had taken his brother and grown-up children to see him. On that day, I felt for certain he had truly left his body behind. When we later left the viewing room and got out into the sunshine, I had the most overwhelming warm and calming feeling that he was standing right there with us. This was his first visit in spirit. It felt so good; I smiled a huge great smile for the first time since losing him.

Going Forward Without Him

Of course, even when you can feel your loved one with you, you still have to get through the grieving process. It surely is a long and winding road; take my word for it.

Feeling your loved one's presence during this time can be a bit of a mixed blessing because it can, and often does, make the longing to see them even greater. However, at other times, it can help a huge amount.

Don't forget to accept all the help and comfort offered to you during the grieving process from loved ones on this plane. Find something or some way that will get you up and out of bed every day and keep you engaged. I found I needed to work really, really hard and lean on my friends. I got out of the house when it all got too much and found company and distraction. I am lucky in the fact that I have really fantastic friends nearby who stood by me through thick and thin and helped, not only emotionally, but practically, too. As my family and my other friends live in another country, it was hard for them to do more than give moral support. Nevertheless, some gave just what was needed. I thank them all.

If you feel you are slipping into depression or anxiety and don't think you can cope, please do go and see your doctor. You can also talk with a bereavement counsellor or contact others in a similar situation. Please don't feel like you have to suffer in silence.

Hello, Hearty. I Know You Are There.

I feel Hearty's presence, like when someone enters a room and says hello. It gives me a kind of warm feeling. I hear his voice in my head too. Not a conversation, but just things he would say. He has also come to me in dreams, and once or twice through mediums.

I had this reading on the first aniversary after his death, and quite honestly, it was so accurate you would have thought the medium had been married to him too.

During another time, it was a really bad day for me. I was holding onto the urn containing his ashes and wailing like a banshee when all of a sudden I felt the top of my hand warming up. It was so noticeable it stopped my crying, and I just sat staring at my hand. I felt sure he had his hand on top of mine, and later, I felt the same warmth across my shoulders. He was giving me a hug.

A number of years ago, I had a breakdown and was suffering very badly with anxiety. Things had been going wrong in almost all aspects of my life, and it got to be too much. I was in a state of constant anxiety and agitation. I wasn't sleeping, I couldn't eat, and I didn't know which way to turn. It got so bad one morning I actually threw up with anxiety; but then a really strange and powerful thing happened. As I was rinsing my face, I stood and stared at myself in the mirror and all of a sudden had this incredible feeling that forces outside of me were taking over and things would change. It was such a powerful feeling that I made circling motions with my hand and said out loud, "I can feel things moving. I know you are there, and I'm going to get through this." For those of you who have never experienced out-of-control anxiety, let me tell you, this is the very last thing you would think.

For me, these events are just more confirmations that my loved one or loved ones were right there with me when I really needed them to be there to help me get back on track.

The Last Word

I know there will be many people out there who believe in the spirit world and our loved ones' ability to come back and help us when we most need them, and many who don't believe.

For the latter, I hope that you can be open-minded enough to at least think, "Well, maybe it can happen," and just maybe you will start to feel the presence of those who have gone on ahead. They are hanging about in the wings waiting to help us out and offer comfort and love.

I dedicate this story to my Darling Hearty. I will love you forever and then some. xx

Questions & Answers

  • how can I see my loved one who has passed away?

    I don't think many people do. In my own experience, it was more like I felt him around, and certain things happened that I was sure were signs to let me know he was still around, just out of sight.

  • Why does my boyfriend see my dead husband?

    Maybe your boyfriend is psychic.

  • Will I see my mother in heaven?

    My belief is yes, you will. So sorry for your loss.

  • How can I feel the presence of my boyfriend's soul who departed?

    I don't think everyone can feel their loved one's presence, and sometimes we just don't recognize the signs. He will be forever in your heart though I am sure. So sorry for your loss.

  • There have been signs of a spirit in my home; CDs stating up, lights flickering, and recently a chair had been turned around. I hope it's my dear departed nephew, but how can I be sure?

    Was your nephew a mischievous lad? I can't answer your question definitively as I'm not a medium. I have read that electrical appliances can start doing weird things, and it's not unusual for things to move or not be where you left them.

      Very interesting article, I had tears rolling down my face reading it. Quite overwhelming.

      Your article mentions your husband. I empathise with the passing of my English bull terrier, that I so dearly miss beyond words. I saved his eyesight through a heredity PLL and managed to keep one eye. This happened when he was 3 and broke me then. He lived until 14.5, and died in my arms two weeks ago. He died of hemangiosacoma, a brutal cancer that took him over 2 weeks. When he stopped eating I moved him to my bed and nurtured him as in palliative care. He had every test possible and the thing that gave me peace was he wasn’t in pain.

      And may I point out to all animal owners, if your pet is NOT in pain you must NOT put them to sleep. You have a duty of care as an owner to keep them alive. Life is better than death in every sense. By bully lost control of his bladder at times in the night as the cancer was in his spleen that was pushing on his bladder so although i was beside him next to me for almost three weeks, he peed on his duvet that was on top of mine. So every day I washed it. That to me is not enough to put him to sleep like some arsehole said I should have done in the gym the other day when I told him.

      Anyway, I smell my bully often. It a strong smell, like the smell I had in car when I took Him to the crematorium. What a devastating day that was, never again.

      I’ve noticed an old dog ball not his, in the front of the hedge when I wheeled the bins in from collection, and the strangest thing was the day after I hurried him. I spend 3 hours digging a 750mm hole to put the urn of his ashes in outside my kitchen and on the Sunday morning I saw 3 cock pheasants standing on the fence facing him. They were perfectly separated with the middle on being centre to the grave I dug the day before. They were there for 1 hour u till 12.00. It was almost as if they knew he was there and, being animals, and pheasants we feed now and again with corn, they paid homage to him. The day of his cremation when he was in the car to be taken away I wanted to light a candle in a church near our house. I had anointed it with oil and said what I wanted to it. I made sure it was a vigil candle. A hand made church candle, very thin and slightly bent. It is a discussed and few people go in but it is open all the time. I lit the candle and said “does anyone have some money?” To put in the church coffers as a thank you. No one did. I thought ok, and then saw to my amazement a £5 note against the wall. I picked it up, thanked my bill terrier, placed into the slit where money goes, left and got back into the car to take my friend to the crematorium.

      I am crying writing this, but I do believe to appreciate life you must experience death. I have no brothers or sisters or family and I’m self employed so work alone. My bully went where I went he was what my left is to my right.

      I breath his smell most nights right now, which gives me a headache slightly as it is so overwhelming but I love it and wouldn’t miss it for the world. If only I could just speak to him and tell him he’s a good boy again

      My husband died 3 weeks ago. He had an affair i found out 2 months ago. He never came clean fully. Now im stuck wondering if he loved me or her?

      I need to know who defines the loved ones? Are they who i loved or who he loved? Or? Will he be there when i go? Or will he be there for her? I dont know

      I dont feel him. No dreams. Nothing. Is he visiting her? I dont know. Its unbearable. All the not knowing. I no longer have any security in knowing he loved me. He took his own life. So i have that to deal with also. I found him. Im financially ruined from medical bills trying to save him. It would be nice to have 1 answer to give me peace.

      If i understand if he even loves me. That would help. If i understood how being the loved one works. That would help me figure out so much. Is it who i loved or who he loved or ? Who picks the loved ones that are there when you cross? Ugh im so tired of not knowing anything.

      I know there are earth bond spirits that lost there life way to early I witnessed this in North Wales she may have appeared to others but as a spirit light source if you like if your receptive enough at the time it flash in through your third eye then into you consious mind.

      Mediumship another good one I was never one hundred percent convinced till I experienced that blindfolded you don't know who your sitting for then all of a sudden you get images coming into your mind of an unknown person they don't exist on this plane but on a plane that operates at a greater speed so I recon we move much slower. What you could use for an example is going to sleep at night some night's you close your eyes next thing 7 to 8 hrs have past in a flash

      Dear Carol.

      What a terrible loss you suffered, but your boy will be at peace now. I lost my hearty getting on for 16 years ago and I have never let him go either, how can you. I loved him in life and I love him still. In my view its impossible to let someone go so don´t even think about it love. Take care and live life for the both of you xx

      Dear Joella.

      My hearty also doed from lung cancer so I know what you went through and what he did too. What a horrible disease it is in any form. I feel for you love. It really sounds like he is with you and that must be lovely but doesn´t take away the pain of loss. I just content myself with knowing that eventually when the time is right, we will be together again forever.

      Take care of yourself my dear, it will be what he would want.

      Love and hugs to you.xx

At first it is very very difficult, all of it, but it does get easier with practice. 16 years after losing my dear hearty I still cry for him from time to time and think of him every single day, but then I feel him with me and it sees me through.

      My husband passed in Jan 2019. Since I have ben finding dimes everywhere, as well as my children and grandchildren. he has a saying a penny for your thoughts a dime for your love. Also, I get sooo sad at times and for no reason other than I can feel him sooo strongly around me. My soul weeps for him. Several times I feel as if he is right by my side, then other times I feel he's no where around. But within an hour or maybe day or so He's back with me.

      My husband passed away at home 9 weeks ago after a horrible illness. Since then I have had 2 pure white small feathers on the pillow I lay by my side.

      I’ve also had a dream where I was in a bedroom like a hotel room, but not, with 2 other people, 1 definitely a man plus a male body lying on the bed. The other two were saying, we’ve killed him, but the word kill seemed the wrong word, One of the other people left the room and I covered the body with the blanket I would use for my husband and lay on the bed with him. There was movement with the body next to me and the man left in the room spoke on his walkie talkie to the other person and said the panther is moving, the panther is still alive. He then said we have to go, we have to go. I took off the blanket to fold up and then the dream kind of went away, but me personally (not the dream) felt like a body lying next to me and a whisper in my ear ‘I’m still here’

      Then about a week ago I woke up with a start, when I physically felt someone kiss me on the lips....i woke with my hand going to my mouth, eyes wide open and my lip was wet.

      And lastly, the other night, in my dream there were 2 white small rectangle pieces of paper. I think I was writing something on them, although I know they were both blank. It was the 2nd piece of paper that startled me. When I went to write on it, it disappeared, like a magic trick, poof away.

      I truly believe these all have meaning but nt sure what. Any answers to enlighten me please

      I so need my husband to be with me...everyone always said we were true soul mates, which we both believed too.

      Oh my dear I am so very very sorry to hear about your son. That's just terrible and what a huge shock for you all.

      I am not a psychic medium so cannot answer your question, I wish I could. I do feel however that he will be with you in spirit but perhaps you are too much in shock just now to notice any signs.

      Sending love and a huge great hug. xx

      Dear Chad.

      It sounds very much to me like your dear lady is indeed keeping her eye on you and coming back with love to help you through this devastating time.

      It's heartbreaking when you lose the love of your life and soul mate but eventually we learn to smile again even without them. I wanted to die too when I lost my hearty, and I have done since then when life got too much and I sank into deep depression and tried to end it all. Therefore your comment about feeling suicidal is really bothering me a lot. Please please please go and see your doctor or speak to someone about this if you continue to have these thoughts.

      For now, just accept that all these feelings and coincidental things that are happening are indeed your wife letting you know she is still with you in spirit and hang onto that, it's her life line to you.

      Take care dear xx

      My wife, best friend and soul mate of 30 years recently passed suddenly. I've been exceptionally low and begging the lord for answers as well as to take me too. I've been talking to my wife as if she were here getting no response of course. I listen to music to occupy my mind. Yesterday I talked and talked to her hoping for answers, and full of regrets. Then believe it or not I just felt like she was there. At that moment literally 13 songs played back to back randomly that every song had a direct and powerful meaning to everything I was thinking, saying, and asking. Then later at home; I was very depressed, suicidal actually, and I got this feeling she was with me; then our cat freaked out 3 separate times literally like she had seen a ghost. Arched back, raised hair, while looking at me running away backwards and sideways. She wasn't playing, and has NEVER done this before. This happened 3 times. I'm I crazy for thinking anything, or is it possible my wife was there. I would do anything to be with my wife or just see her. Maybe I'm just loosing it because I miss her soooooo much.

      THE SOUL is what goes - the flesh rots in the grave -the Soul has given you another body for eternity. Its that simple. I think but yes - the soul does not die with the flesh. When Jesus was killed on the Cross. He went up and came back down. He even ate with his disciples - thomas that is my name. Was not in the room when Jesus was their. BUT Jesus came to Thomas and showed him the hands etc etc. Thomas died in India. The fire could not hurt him and they throwed their spears at Thomas until the flames died out. I believe it but many dont. thank you I hope it helped someone. Tom

      I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. My mam died at 44 too and my sis and I were left at 6 years old along with 4 more siblings. Reading about your young life makes me so grateful that my dad managed to keep us all at home.

      Your lady sounds lovely and what a loss you have suffered.

      Not everyone feels the presence of loved one's, or maybe we just miss the signs! Hang in there and I bet one night she will come to you in your dreams. Let me know if she does or if you get a sign.

      Take care of yourself for her sake, she would be so upset if you don't. X

      I remember visiting an elderly tenant who lost his wife some three months he was in a terrible state of despair he missed so he said he could not go on for much Im a good listener sometimes I can offer advice I said to him listen to me don't do anything silly do you think your would want you to be unhappy I said you grieving I said when you feel the pain at its most talk to he tell how you feel I'm sure she can hear you I said do you know they can visit you in your dreams. I was not sure if it helped, I was concerned for the gentle man so I mentioned it when I next went into the office

      Dear Brian.

      How wonderful for you to have felt your friend coming to you like that, your message certainly rang true with me because I have had exactly the same experience, not when my husband passed away, but later. It was wonderful and like you I felt very happy and knew he was in a good place but popped in to see me and let me know he was with me still in spirit.

      Take care of yourself Brian xx

      It's kinda strange how they can visit you I had a friend who had a friend who I also befriended but because of his illness it would make it difficult to visit him I was starting to wake one sat morn when I felt this very happy sensation like something moving inside my head it was a feeling of utter blissful ness of contentment I jerked my self fully awake andi thought that's a strange experience so I carried on with my day and visted my friend in the ymca he looked sad as he opened the door and said he's gone I said whos gone they found arthur dead that was our other friend. My eyes suddenly got wider he said what the matter, I said he visted me this morning. He visited you I said arthurs spirit. When I was having my experience I got the impression it was saying come on wake up sleepy head

When I feel her there I talk away to her about anything ,it really does bring me comfort.

I felt the bed sink on his side of the bed, at first was afraid but it happened again and this time I felt like I was lifted and calm. It’s only been 8 weeks since he’s been gone and I feel each day is a struggle, we had our first grandchild 2weeks ago I wish he could be hereto sharehow wonderful she is, my reason for getting up and out of bed.x

      You and me are in the same pain. Not for us but for our babies we have to survive. If I cry, my son also cries, so I have to hide my tears and give a smile to him as if Iam happy. You and me have to hide our own pain only for our babies. But nothing can reduce our pain, only one knows who goes through it like you and me.

He’s my high school sweet heart and soulmate. When I read your story, I felt like I was reading my own nightmare. I don’t have any words for you because I’m sharing in the same pain. I often think how I want to die and just be with him and know one around us understands the pain we are going through for ourselves and our child. :(

      You people are not Bible readers or believers. The Bible states that the “Dead” can not cross back on Earth . Once the dead has taken

      the last breath, their soul goes where the person has prepared for.

      So if you are seeing or hearing things , perhaps Therapy is advised.

      Dear Kavita.

      How sorry I feel for you, to lose the love of your life so young and so suddenly is horrific and you must feel like your heart has been ripped out, no wonder you are feeling as you do, but what you are experiencing is shock and grief. I certainty felt I wanted to die and be with my hearty when he died, life without him didn't feel worth living but we have to carry on and although you won't believe it no matter how many people tell you, with time your loss will get easier to bear. It feels impossible I know but it's true. Your child needs you and needs to know about his or her daddy and the love and life you shared before he was taken from you.

      It sounds very much like your husband is with you in spirit and I do belive will be waiting for you when your time to join him comes, but that time is not now. Have you seen your doctor and told him how you are feeling or sought other help? I urge you to do that if you can.

      Look after yourself and your child and remind yourself often that you will not always feel as you do now even if you don't believe it right now, it is true.

      I send you and your child love and a big hug and the advice to accept what you are going through now as normal for the grieving process, which it is, but know it will get easier. One day like me you will realise that you actually want to live and not die, but it takes time to get there. XX

      I lost my husband on 23rd October 2018 due to lung infection. It was very sudden that both of us were shocked. Before sitting in ambulance he was talking with me and within half and hour blood came from his mouth and nose and he died looking at me only. We have a nine month old baby too. He was 34. He was my child friend and life and everything for me , my love, my guide each and everything. Without him I can't think anything I find everything meaningless for me.My family members are supporting me a lot but at a moment I feel like mad myself and want to go with him. We fought, quarrelled, laughed and made lots of fun with each other and these things now coming to me every time and make me unstable. He often comes to my dream and talks and says that he is in hurry , so sometimes he gives me coin, sometimes asks some new dress to wear, sometimes weeps so badly with me hugging me. In reality also sometimes I enter my room and instanly for some moments I smell his body odour.I am very confused what to do, I can't think anything without him. He was my best friend, my child-love. Our baby also searches him and if he sees any man like his father he looks at him very closely and then turns his face, it makes cry. We were so simple but very happy he loved and took care of me more than my expectation. Now Iam like a body without soul bcoz my husband was my soul. Our marriage would complete four years in this December but I feel he loved me not for four years but more than four births. I will love and wait for him forever. I want to talk and meet and fight with him which I really miss everytime. I don't know how far I will control myself to proceed without him. Any suggestion please. Will we meet one day? Iam asking him to wait for me till my death, will he wait for me?

      Hi Anne.

      I Tragically lost my 21 year old son 5 months ago.. he was walking home from the bar and was run over. I totally relate to what you say about seeing them as a shell. I had my son home for the weekend before his funeral..and I stayed by his side for 36hrs. It was the best thing I could’ve done.. it so helped me with my grieving. Up until that point I didn’t know how how was going to let him go. The more I looked at him over those 36hrs.. the more I realized that he wasn’t there anymore. I could see it wasn’t my son anymore ,the spark that made him him was gone and I felt him more around me than I felt coming from the casket. I’ve had a couple of things happen to me In the first few weeks after his passing, but nothing since. The first was I was having a bad day and couldn’t get out of bed... my bedroom door kept opening and I had to get out of bed to close it. This happens 5 or 6 times before I ended up putting the lock on it.. I know it was him telling me to get up and not to be upset. The 2nd was my first time driving alone and I was nervous being out.. I was pulling out of my estate and two bikers were behind me (my son was a biker) they were side by side, but hung back like they were escorting me, keeping the traffic far back from behind me (it was so surreal while I was looking in my rear view mirror) and as I pulled onto the highway the bikers went by just has I put the radio on the DJ was announcing my sons favourite song oasis wonderwall. It was like he guided me out and once he knew I was ok, he played that song to let me know I’d be ok and he’d be with me. Nothing anyone can say to me will change my mind about it.. I felt his presence in the car. He hasn’t been back, but I think he knows I’m coping and his brother who isn’t needs him more.. he’s had so many signs from him.

      Excellent article Anne! I can relate in so many ways. My wife passed just 4 months ago after battling ovarian cancer for the past 2 years. We married 22 years ago in 1996, I was only 20 and she was 28. Many said we were a pair of old souls. We had an unbreakable bond (believe me I gave my love a reason or two to try to break it in our years but we worked through it and it only made our love stronger) and were soulmates in every way. We were Bible believing Christians so the thought of her spirit surrounding me conflicts with what we believe but there's no doubt in my mind she's with me, even as I lay here in a hotel room with our son some 400 miles away from home (we're visiting a college he's considering attending next year). I sense her presence around me constantly, it's as if her spirit is coarsing through my veins. I talk to her frequently and have vivid dreams most night - when I'm able to fall asleep. I even catch myself staring at the ceiling as I'm talking to her and realize the look on my face is a look my wife would have. The first time it happened it freaked me out but it just happened a few minutes ago and I almost busted out laughing. Feeling her presence as strongly as I do can be a double edged sword but I'll gladly take the tears and heartache with the warmth and love. After all, I did vow to love her for better or worse. Thank you so much for sharing your story and giving us all a place to share ours. To my love in Heaven and all around me, I love you Red, now and forever! DMN4EVR

      My wife died 14 months ago due to a heart attack. After death, I am trying to talk to her by writing or any vision of her, but she did not come to me. My neighbor house two persons have seen her appearance in the night when she entered my house. When she showed her appearance in green saree by covering her head. But always, some wrong soul who is always speaking to me that she is my wife. I could not believe that she is always lying and even asking me to drink my own urine. Please guide me that how can I meet or talk to my real wife. Her name is Vallikannu died on 17 July 2017. I am from Sivaganga, Tamil Nadu, India. I love her too much.

      After the death of my mum, 4 years ago , a medium told me that mum wanted to stay with me. I collected the ashes and she has been with me since. My nan & grandad (my mum's parents) recently died only months apart. My grandfather was cremated and my nan wanted to be buried. My family now want mum and grandfather to share the coffin with my nan - she is to be buried (not cremated) I'm not sure what to do? It feels like I'm losing mum again - I feel her spirit around me a lot. I know it sounds crazy, but I'm worried if I let the ashes go , she'll go too..

I truly miss him with all of my heart and love him dearly, We have been together since the age of 15 so its like we grew up together.

      My mum died in 2016,my father in 2017 .both cancer.Shortly after my mum passed, I had to make my appointment for my first mammogram,just as a precaution although I’m still well under 50.While I was in the dressing room at the clinic, a voice inside my head told me that they would find something, but not to freak out because it wasn’t cancer.Sure enough, at the next mammogram i was clear :).My mum was my absolute best friend, and we were closer than any other mom/daughter I’ve ever known.It was her voice that I heard that day.Coincidence? Maybe I’m nuts? .Maybe not :)

      My husband passed away just a few weeks ago. What you told this woman has given me a lot of relief. I did not know that he could still hear me all the time, and that he's listening to me when I'm telling him things, things to do ways to come through. I hope he knows how much I was madly in love with him and still am. I love him as if he still standing right here. I told him no matter what we are still married and will always be married, and to be there for me when it's my turn. I hope he's there looking for me and waiting for me so he can go on through eternity together. Because the way I see it, there is no other man for me, and I don't think there ever will be. My husband is the only one I could ever love the way I did.

      ​​Hello, My name is Amanda, I actually came across this page literally by accident however I have a strong feeling it "wasn't accidental" I was actually looking for information about "signs" from loved ones because every time I am outside a dragonfly appears and just hovers around until I go back inside, at first I didn't think much of it but here recently I began really noticing the pattern and it's honestly every time I am outside at my home (many times throughout the day) so I decided to Google any information about this or if it has happened to others, maybe not a dragonfly but something similar and this site popped up. So I want to share some of the "Blessings" as I call them with you all, I want to apologize in advance for such a long post but there's so much I want to share and I've learned that it is very helpful for me to talk about my dad and share things with others even people I don't know. It was April 19, 2005 I was 25 when I lost my Daddy, he was 59, my dad was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes when I was 5 he was 39, the ER doctors couldn't understand how/why my mom was able to walk my dad into the emergency room, his blood sugar was 900 and all the doctors and nurses said he should've been in a coma with that high of blood sugar, dad spent 2 weeks in the hospital. It was a 20 year battle with this disease, like a rollercoaster there were so many ups and downs it was one of the hardest things I've ever had to sit and watch as literally attacked every single part of his body, from his kidneys, eyes, bones and limbs. In my eyes my dad was the strongest man I knew and to this day still is, many of you can probably tell by now I was a Daddy's Girl, he was my world and if you asked anyone I was his. It was April 18, 2005 my dad was still in ICU at the hospital (so some of you know the visiting hours are a lot different) I spent every visitation with my dad that was scheduled for an hour, so on the 18th it was the last visitation for the evening, he was sitting up sideways in his bed, feet dangling over the edge and I told him he looked and must have felt great that evening, he looked at me and his words have stuck in my head still to this day he said "Baby girl, your daddy is going home" my reply was one he probably heard a few times over 20 years, I told him when the doctor tell us you can. At 3:30am (7 hours after seeing him and his words to me) April 19, 2005 the hospital called and said I needed to get there that he was unresponsive. I sit right beside him holding his hand from the moment I got there, it was my mom who looked at me and said "he is fighting for you, you need to tell him it's okay" I can promise you those 2 words were the hardest 2 words I've ever said, it was that very moment he squeezed my hand and opened his big blue eyes as a tear rolled across the bridge of his nose 15 hours after the hospital called I watched as he took his final breath. Many, many months went by after his passing until one night I had a dream that was so real it had my shaking, I called my mom and began telling her, she quickly said I'm on my way, I need to talk to you, so she gets there and we talk. My parents had separated when I was 20, probably 2 years before my dad passed my mom had gotten pregnant and my dad took it extremely hard when he found out, he was angry with me (because I was happy, I always wanted a sibling, I was their only child, my dad had 4 others from a previous marriage but they were a lot older than me) and he said some hurtful things to my mom, sadly my mom miscarried but unknowingly to me until that moment she came to talk my mom told me everything from his hurtful words to the promise he made, my dad had told her after her miscarriage that she would have the son they always wanted but he would'nt be here to see it. It was exactly 2 months after my dad passed my mom found out she was pregnant, soon later she found out it was a boy and a few months later my brother Elijah, was born, (we are 27 years apart and just a little insight my parents were 17 years apart) in my dream it was me and my mom and she told me I needed to tell my dad we were leaving but I couldn't find him, then he was there and he said "Elijah is here because of me and one day Baby Girl you too will be a mommy". I think my mom was just as shaken up as I was when I had first called her to tell her about my dream. When Elijah was 2 he was playing and asked me if I knew his friend "Donnie" I thought to myself "Oh Lord, he has imaginary friends" probably about a week to a week and a half later, me and my mom were sitting at my house (of course this big sister had him spoiled, he had his own room and toy room at my house) and Elijah comes running out of his toy room and asked if I knew "Goat" I said yes bub I know what goats are and he said "NO, My Friend Goat, he comes to see me and plays with me, he told me he really loves you and misses you" my heart sank and I busted into tears, so did my mom, you see my dads name was Donald (that's where the "Donnie" came in) and his nickname was "Goat!!", my brother never met him, dad passed in '05 and Elijah was born in '06. In 2013 I reconnected with my old boyfriend whom I dated when I was 19, we've been married for almost 4 years now. My husband to this very day still talks about the time we went to my parents for dinner and my dad told him to have a seat, they needed to talk and dad told me to go help my mom in the kitchen that this was a talk between a father and his daughters boyfriend, my husband will say he was scared to death and he will never forget "that talk". Now I tell you that this was the very FIRST and LAST time my dad ever sat down a boyfriend and had "that talk" sometimes I wonder if daddy knew something John and I didn't know many years ago. There's been many things and different signs in these 13 years since dad has passed that's happened, I have learned not to blame others for things missing, I use to blame my poor little brother but I've realized over the years it wasn't him or others, my dad was a huge practical joker. My husband and I recently moved back home to West Virginia from Louisiana, we both were born and raised here (WV) we now live in the same town where I was raised. About a month and a half ago I was sitting up stretched out on my couch playing a casino game on my tablet and my husband was in another room doing who knows what (typical man thing) when something caught my eye, I looked up and standing in the dining room stood my dad, I even shook my head as if my eyes were playing tricks on me only to still see him standing there, nothing was said but a feeling came over me, it was as if my dad was saying it's okay, I'm okay, I'm still here with you (that's the easiest way I can explain it, like for the first time I felt Peace) So that brings me back to what I was first saying about coming across this site, since moving back each time I'm outside there is 1 dragonfly that shows up out of nowhere hovering around me almost close enough to touch. A little bit ago I told my husband about it, like I said just recently did I start noticing the pattern of this occurrence with the dragonfly. My husband was outside for about 20mins before I went outside, soon after I was out there like the snap of your fingers the dragonfly appeared, my husband looks at me and said "what the" I've been out here this whole time and never once seen a dragonfly. My husband doesn't believe in things like this well I can't say it's that he don't believe I just think he doesn't want to out of fear as for myself, I smile and say "Hi Daddy, I Know You're Here and I Love You Too".

      My parents married 72 years - mom in hospice for a week and died.

      Her spirit comes into their bed every night & dad can feel her feet

      and see her go under the covers. What a miracle as they loved for so long and I have no doubt, she is there. When he gets up in the morning, she leaves. Continues when he goes to bed. A miracle.

      Dear Kim.

      I am so sorry for your loss. Seems like you are getting signs from your loved one. I think you should write it all as a hub.

      Take care dear.

      "The Story of Seamus" - Cont'd

      ...And boy, did I get a sign! On that cold January night, I was working in an application on my computer, and also still fretting over the status of my old friend - wondering where he had gone, and if he was OK. I felt so bad that he had died alone in his apartment.

      All of a sudden, out of nowhere, a favorite photo of Andy that had months before been posted to his Facebook page slowly floated across my computer screen from a top corner, diagonally down to the opposite bottom corner. I couldn't believe it. I didn't have the Facebook app. open, and I was working in an entirely different app.

      I have been working with computers for years, and have never experienced this phenomenon before at any time, nor at any time since.

      This was my first experience with the comforting signs that can be gifts, bestowed upon us from our loved ones from that other place, and I chose at that time to put it in the back of my head, as it was just too outrageous for me to deal with (it did relieve my anxiety.) But after the events of the past week, I am putting it all together and deciding I have too many coincidences now to disregard.

      Today is Friday, June 22nd, just five days after my dearly loved Seamus passed from us (in the physical form) on Sunday, June 17th, and the writing is helping me to cope and to come to terms with what I have experienced. I have to say that I also carried out some unexplained actions during the two weeks before Seamus's death, (that appear to suggest that I subconsciously knew that he would be taken from us soon) but I will have to outline those in yet another post, as I feel I have written enough for now.

      Thanks to the author of this article for allowing me to share my lengthy thoughts, experiences (and rambling) on this topic. Ultimately, we are all in this together and I hope people continue to share their experiences as a comfort and inspiration to others.

      Remember, love is the greatest creative energy of all.

      Hello,

      I can so relate because I went through a horrific life changing event six years ago. My loved whom had passed made their presence known to help me heal.

      I am much better now. It is quite an amazing journey to go through.

      Thank you so much for posting I was feeling quite alone with my experience.

      A guy I love died ten years ago. He’s always giving me signs. I went to see a psychic medium and he cane through. He told her I write poems to him. I see his name all over the place, the year he passed, and thins associated to him. I was crying one time for him and smelled perfume. At times I cen feel when I have issues he is there comforting me. I saw a psychic couple days ago again. He cane through said that he misses me, loves me, and that I’m the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. I did meditation before going to psychic and he cane through smiling, wearing white, and a little typinger looking and glowing. Omg when he was playing with my long hair I could feel it as if it was real. He told ne things that came through. The way that he holds me is so surreal. I’ve never felt as loved as that ever. I love him so much and I miss him. I was also told that he travels with me, and is always with me. I smelled him before in my car.

      My husband died 8 months ago, though cancer he wanted to die at home this was his wish the night before he was suffering then the palliative nurse came and upped his pain killer what he was haveing was death rattle which no one told me about and I didn't no about this until his cousin told me. What I feel guilty about was my daughter and son was leaveing mine at 130 in the Moring they told me mum you have to get some rest I really wanted to sit with him, I was only

      in next room I fell asleep about 2, I then woke at 10 to 5 in Moring went to check on him and he was gone. I didn't expect him to go so quick. I thought in a day or so , il never forgive myself for not holding his hand before he passed. I have his ashes here in front room which is some comfort, but I'm still so hurt miss him so much.

      Dear Donna.

      It can be as hard losing a much loved pet as losing a human being. Years ago I had a cat that we had for a long long time, when he died I was heartbroken, but I saw him months later laying in the dining room near the heater. I actually tripped to avoid stepping on him.

      I am glad that you still feel the presence of both your dog and v your dad. That's lovely. Xx

      Sorry but I don't know her finger could move, but it certainly seems she is still with you, and it made me smile when you said she throws pillows at you. Is that something she would do from time to time?

      That will have been your Mom letting you know she is with you still.

      I had a similar experience when I was a pub landlady. One of our customers had a dog who used to come with him when he visited and he told me she had some kind of reproductive organs cancer , when I looked into that dogs eyes I filed up with tears because my own Mm died when I was a child with a similar cancer. There was just some connection when we looked at each other that I found inexplicable. I hope your dog is Ok now and glad you know your mom made herself known. xx

      My Mother passed last dec. 19 2017, since then my dog became ill, no explanation, all my mom's symptoms are all in my dog now. we brought him to the vet 3x, the vet can't even explain what happened. One night when I came home from work I said Hi to my dog. I said "Hi Mom" the light flickered, that why I knew it was her. I feel her presence everywhere I go, I didn't believe in these things, but now I do.

      Dear Minda Lopez.

      I am so very sorry for your loss, its heartbreaking losing your soul mate and so quickly too.

      When my husband was diagnosed with cancer we knew right from the start that it was terminal, but hoped for more years together than we had. He was also told his chemo and radiotherapy had gone very well, but just 2 months after it finished it was found the cancer had spread to his brain and then throughout his body.

      You are in the early early stages of your grief Minda and its heart wrenchingly painful , but I believe our loved ones are still with us in spirit and sometimes you may feel him with you.

      Please know that you will not always feel life is worthless without your husband. One day you will realise that you smiled or laughed again without him. Life goes on no matter how much we think it impossible in the early stages. We never stop loving or missing our husbands but it does get easier.

      Sending a big hug your way love. kindest wishes too xx

      I lost my soulmate Suman just 4 days back. Though he was suffering from blood cancer, he was revived completely and on maintainance, but unfortunately some few weeks ago he was admitted to the hospital for only normal symptoms like nausea, but he got pneumonia is over in the hospital and left me all alone. I can not able to accept the fact that he was no more with me. And I am not having any food since 5 days, but since he died I am feeling his presence, I can several time feeling the tangling sensation over my body as I touched by him. Now it is winter season and some time being outside also I am feeling the warmth. My Suman never leaves me alone since last 3 years we met. And I am sure he wouldn’t now also.

      I love you. And I know you will love me till the eternity.

      And I am waiting for the day till I have my last breath that you will show me yourself to me.

      I lost my soul mate Louise 7 months ago. The cancer slowly and methodically took her life over a seventeen year period. I was her caregiver as her needs gradually increased. I am now a lost soul with no meaning or purpose left in my life. I am fortunate that I have three loving daughters that have created a place for me in their lives. I am 78 years old, making it more difficult to start a new life without my Louise........

      Dear Anuj Awasthi, I am very sorry for your loss! I can relate to what you have said 99%! My beloved mother suddenly left me almost 3 years ago! She had a silent heart attack, but she was a healthy, active and a young looking lady. She wasn't just my mother but my best friend and my guide and I never thought she'd leave this early! She wanted to see my big big day as well and it was the dream she had for her only child and I have a big heartache that I couldn't fulfil her dream. But now I know her soul lives!

      To this day I see her in my dreams quite often! I see dreams of her every week. I also feel her presence, specially when I go through a rough patch in my life! With these experiences I know our loved ones are watching over us. Your Beloved mother is watching over you as well.

      If you are open minded you'll able to see signs from her. They can communicate to us through dreams and thoughts. There are times I am having a difficult times to find certain items my mother has kept hidden when she was alive. I would ask her them verbally hoping she'd hear me and I would get thoughts where to find it and surprisingly the first thought I get helps me to find the necessary item. This has happened to both me and my father many times so we understand it isn't just a coincidence.

      You are never alone! Your mother is there with you! Take your time to grieve and learn what you can from this experience. My mothers sudden death certainly changed me a lot! I grieved a lot and I still miss her so bad but the whole experience made me strong! I will do things to make her soul happy! Our moms are watching over us!

      I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers! This stranger knows how you feel! May God be with you and your family in these difficult times.
