The 10 Most Common Signs From Deceased Loved Ones

Author:

Lyn believes the deceased are able to communicate with the living through various media. She enjoys sharing her experience with others.

According to my beliefs, a loved one who has just passed away will be quite anxious to let us know that they're okay and aware of what's happening in our lives. If we aren't able to feel them around us, they'll often give us a "sign" that we can't ignore. The person who has been given a "sign" often knows the message is coming from the other side. Even if we dismiss it, that little voice inside will make us wonder.

Here are the 10 most common "signs of spirit," or signs from the deceased, that people receive from loved ones who have passed away.

1. They Love to Play With Electricity

Playing with electricity seems to be one of the most common "signs of spirit." It is an easy way to grab our attention. Spirits like to flicker lights, turn the television or radio on and off, or make appliances beep for no apparent reason. Our loved ones have the ability to interfere with light and electricity because they're now pure energy. They can manipulate appliances, TV, microwaves, etc. Most of the time they just want to make us aware that they're with us.

If your television turns off or on for no apparent reason, start investigating the reason behind it:

  • What show or channel is on? Is it a favorite show of your loved one? Is the radio playing their favorite song?
  • When the lights flickered, what were you thinking about? Were you thinking about your loved one? Sometimes that thought can be an acknowledgment or even confirmation that your loved one is near.

2. They Give Off Fragrances

We can often tell our deceased loved ones are around us when we smell their scent: perfume, flowers, cigar or cigarette smoke, or any other smell associated with them. There may be no logical explanation of why the smell is there. This "sign" can sometimes seem confusing. As humans, we remember how our loved ones smell. We remember a distinctive cologne or perfume they enjoyed, or even the scent of an activity they performed. If your loved one used to work with cars and, out of the blue, you smell motor oil, try not to be scared. Instead, say "Hi!"

3. They Visit Through the Energy of an Animal

Our loved one is able to use their energy to go inside an insect or animal—such as a butterfly, ladybug, bird, or dragonfly—for a brief period of time. The animal will do something it usually wouldn't do, such as land on us, peck at our window, look at us, or scream at us. Unfortunately, this is a sign some people ignore. Our loved ones may try to communicate with us in every unimaginable manner. By using these symbols, they're sending us a message without trying to scare us. They're letting us know, "I'm with you. You're not alone!"

4. They Place an Object in Our Path

Our loved ones like to place objects in our path that are significant to just them—perhaps over and over again. Coins, feathers, keys, and rocks are a few of the most common objects they might leave for us. How can we find the meaning in these small gifts?

  • If you find a coin in your path, look at its year and see if that year is important between you and your deceased loved one.
  • If you find a rock lying in the middle of your bed, or you find your loved one's shirt in an odd place (that's not where you placed it before), this could be a sign from the other side.
  • Try not to be scared and instead, say "Hi!"

5. They Show Us Numbers

Our loved ones might show us numbers that are relevant to them or to you. It could be a birthday, an anniversary, the date of their passing, the time of their passing, or even repeating numbers such as 111, 222, 333, etc. These numbers may appear on clocks, billboards, or any other familiar place. They can also come from family, friends, or even strangers.

  • When driving, pay attention to license plates in front of you and billboards you pass by. Some of the best signs of numbers can come from bumper stickers sitting right in front of you. If you detect a pattern and believe your loved one is communicating with you, take comfort in knowing that they are with you.

6. They Visit in Dreams

One of the easiest ways for our loved ones to communicate with us is through our dreams. A dream that is a true visitation will be very vivid, peaceful, and detailed. We will remember this type of dream many years later. There are a few characteristics you can analyze after having a spiritual visitation dream.

  • It will be very vivid.
  • It will be in color. Sometimes it can be in black and white with color being in the form of your loved one's clothing or something they are holding for you to see.
  • It will be logical and have some sort of message, either in the form of words, physical objects, or even telepathy.
  • You may feel confused upon waking up. You will feel happy, peaceful, or even fearful about what you experienced. (Fearful maybe from never experiencing such a dream before.)

All we need to do is to ask our love ones to come, and they will. We can also ask them to wake us after they visit and to help us remember the dream.

7. They Place Thoughts in Our Minds

Our loved ones don't have an audible voice because they are in spirit form. Therefore, they give us messages telepathically. Pay attention to thoughts that just “pop” into your head. If something your loved one would say just comes to you for no apparent reason, it's probably him or her speaking directly to you. This form of communication is a true blessing! Sometimes it doesn't have to be a particular thought, it can come when the lyric to a song "pops" into your thoughts. Songs and music, like dreams, are universal methods of communication. Listen for the thoughts or songs. You'll know when they're not yours.

signs-from-the-spirit-world

8. They Watch Over Us

Many of us have felt this one! It is possible to pick up on spiritual energy, especially when we're relaxed. When we're in the beginning stages of grief, we have a keener ability to "feel" our loved one around us. There's good reason for this. It simply isn't true that death is final. We may continue to feel our loved one's presence after their passing because they are still very much around us. In the deepest grief, they will try to find a way to let us know they're with us. When we feel like we're being watched, we're being protected and watched over. Above all else, we're still being loved. We're never alone!

9. They Make Songs Play at the Perfect Time

We know our loved one is around when their favorite songs come on at just the right time with the exact words we need to hear. Often the same song plays in many different places.

  • Train yourself to listen to the music overhead in department stores, grocery stores, or even when you're walking into a restaurant.
  • When you're driving and turn on the radio, what song is playing?
  • When you're watching TV, what song comes on at the beginning or ending of a movie you're watching?
  • When you're cleaning, turn on the music and see if a message is being delivered.

If your loved one loved music, this too can be an easy form of communication.

signs-from-the-spirit-world

10. They Buzz in Our Ears

Because our loved ones speak to us using a different, higher frequency, we may hear ringing in our ears when they're trying to get our attention. This is a signal to look for a message.

  • Look at your surroundings—is there something significant to notice? A sign on the side of the road? A bird flying by? A particular cloud in the sky?
  • Are you reading a book, newspaper, or searching on the internet for something? Did you get the ringing in your ear(s) as you read a particular sentence? Re-read that sentence and look for a message.
  • Maybe the ringing in your ear is after a particular thought—this could be a sign of validation from your loved one.

Some Final Thoughts

This list could certainly go on, but these tend to be the more common ways our loved ones let us know they're around us.

If you haven't received any of these signs, you can ask your loved one to come and let you know they're okay. Ask them to come to you in a dream or visit you in the form of butterfly. Ask them to come to you in the form of an animal. Then be aware of the message when it's given to you. Remember though, your loved one may appear in many different ways: books, newspapers, Internet sites, etc.

The more we're aware of the messages and acknowledge them when they arrive, the more our loved ones will continue to communicate with us. Be patient and persistent. As much as we want to communicate with our loved ones, they too want to communicate with us!

Blessings of Peace & Love!

My father recently passed away, I had a picture of him mother and father hanging up on the wall. The other day the glass and picture fell out. I found the glass but can't find the picture anywhere. What happened to it, who took it.?

Pam Murphy on August 26, 2020:

My 25 year old daughter died on July 26, 2020. Since then I've seen her reflection on the ceiling of my bedroom. The sunlight was reflecting through a rhinestone from her shoe onto the ceiling and the leaves from the tree outside the window were forming her face and as the sun moved her face would change to different expressions. It was her hairline, her eyes, nose, cheeks and jawline, absolutely her. I made sure to be there the same time the next day, and she was there again, looking sad at times, mad, scared, but mostly at peace, I hope. At one stage her lips were moving, and I was listening for what she was saying, but I could not. It didn't happen again, just the two times. We took our granddaughter to the beach about a month after she died. I heard a high pitched whine in my ears, so I stopped and looked around. There was a gentleman playing a guitar dressed all in white. I wouldn't have noticed him if I hadn't read this article about high pitched whining in your ear. She loved music and her boyfriend is a guitar player and musician. I went over to him and he was playing a very sad love song. I know she is reaching out to me.

What does it mean when you find dimes facing up I found ,,,5 dimes on the ground my husband pass away 1 yr ago

Julie on June 12, 2020:

My parents died a few months ago within a day of each other. My daughter dropped her watch on the floor a couple of months later and the face cracked, and a couple of days after that, my watch, which I have had for 20 years and has not so much as scratched, dropped and cracked on the floor as well. Symbolic?

Don on June 09, 2020:

My aunt passed away last Thursday. She was only 7 years old than myself and was like my older sister. She fought a hard fight as she had double pneumonia and was running a fever. They automatically placed her in a Covid-19 unit for days and put her on the Ventilator then later moved her to an ICI unit. My uncle and nieces and myself where in the room when they took out the ventilator. She soon took her last breath; and within 2-3 seconds I was the only one that saw a small star floating up from her body. I started crying but no one else saw the star slowly floating upward. I prayed to GOD and my grandparents to please help her and make her well. My wife said that the STAR was a gift from heaven to let you know she is OK.

When I am in my office upstairs at home; I often feel someone touching my leg or arm; but nowhere else in the house do I feel this. My mother also died in this house 10 years ago on Jun-10th. Has anyone else ever experienced such things.

Loretta on April 23, 2020:

My dad passed six years ago I dreamed I was at his house and my current cat got out and was being chased by a dog It was night I went into his bedroom woke him up and asked him to help me he got up to help me get the cat what does this mean?

Tina on April 11, 2020:

My mom died on March 6 2020 after she died I accepted it with grace and passion after that I still really miss her

Michael on April 11, 2020:

I am 80 years old and I still think about my mum every day she gave her life for me and i wish I had told her how much I loved her

C.M Vivi on April 05, 2020:

In 2015 i had a near death experience when i coded and had to be intubated. I remained in a coma for 2 weeks. This is not a final stop here on earth. We are spiritual beings and life continues after our bodies die. Our energy lives on just as it lived before we were born. I have been able to see loved ones and hear their messages for as long as i can remember. Not truly understanding when i was young but knowing something was different at times. Later as a young adult grief from life itself brought them to me when i cried out the need for them. I will tell you this.... They look so very young in afterlife. No wrinkles. No pain. Just love, peaceful love.

All of the means of contact in this article are real. I have seen repeating numbers for as long as i can remember. I always know that angels are around at that moment. God Bless. And stop and listen to those thoughts in your head, that very well could be a loved one trying to tell you something. Peace.

Diane on January 27, 2020:

My Dad died suddenly at his home two days before Christmas. I always prayed to the Lord please never let my Dad suffer. I had surgery later that week. I have been in constant pain for the last few months. I prayed so hard, I didn't even feel that he left this earth. I prayed and asked if he I did a good job taking care of him. I prayed. I prayed.

About three weeks after I asked my girlfriend to drive me to lunch to one of my father's favorite place to eat. When I was in the parking lot I looked down at a license plate "DAD 1025 " It was my Dad's birthday date.

I knew he was with me. I felt so good. I knew things were OK.

Carol on January 18, 2020:

My son died in February 2019. I had become sick in January and was super sick when he died. I was in bed most of the year sick and grieving as well. One day I was sitting up in bed coughing for hours and depressed. I said to myself, what's the point? My quality of life is gone and my son is gone. No point anymore. Suddenly a beautiful swirl of light came in my room and swooped around the room in the dark. It was beautiful, purple, black, yellow and white swirls. I felt immense joy and love so powerful, I could not explain it but it made me cry. I heard a voice saying I'm free, I'm free. And then the swirl of light went into a little urn of his ashes I keep on my dresser. After that I started getting better. When I saw the light I said, Cure me. Then I remembered something I read in a grieving book. It said never approach the dead with need, but with love. I'm still grieving for us, not for him. I truly believe he is in a better place and has some peace as he had a troubled life. So I'm happy for him but me and his sisters continue being sad and having a hard time.

Shirley Mort on December 30, 2019:

My adult son was shot 3 times and killed 05/04/2018. He was sitting at a friends house playing his guitar. The guy evidently was on drugs that shot him. We are still going to Court for the guy to be sentenced for the murder. I went to the cemetery a few weeks after my son's death and it was almost dark. I took a few pictures with my iPhone from my car to see if the solar lights were bright enough. When I got home the next day I looked at the pictures again and there is a grey mist above his grave that shows his face and he looks about 20 years old and his hair is long as he wore it then.Several months after that I did the same thing and the picture shows a large grey mist of an angel over his grave. You can see the wings, halo and outline of her. I have had other signs but these two were just unbelievable for me. I know he was trying to let his Momma know he was okay! I miss my son so much and sometimes feel helpless but these signs from him have helped me so much.

Yes you can over analysis things this is the ego taking command your soul spiritual psychic self does not analysis things that's not to say the ego can be bad it just does not want to loose control of you but we are also spiritual beings its normal to miss the people we love it's just hard knowing there not going to be there

Dean on November 24, 2019:

Responding to Paigeturner1128...

Stop overthinking... The more that you analyze, the further you will go from understanding the truth. Keep your channels open, and let your first thought as things like this occur explain what's happening in the moment. I've had and do have regular occurrences day to day, of all sorts of communications from the other side, so don't be afraid, and remember always to pray and be respectful toward these types of communications...

From my experience i def say that was a presence you find the air density changes almost heavy aĺl the other rooms or areas feel normal for me it was like i was walking into a time warp it makes you feel theres more to this life then we can see

Paigeturner1128 on November 01, 2019:

I’ve been contacted two times by my Father after his passing. Through a caress on my cheek after his funeral; and, a phone call during an especially stressful time in my life about 18 months after he died. I heard a familiar phrase. I cherish both memories of his love.

But I’m writing today, and sharing with your forum because I can’t stop thinking about an incident that happened recently. I’m not sure if its paranormal, spiritual or, maybe nothing but strange. And, whether anyone could know, what it means. Or if someone has had something similar happen to them.

I live in a small, one-story house. It has four rooms, a half-basement, but no attic.

It was mid-afternoon on July 28, 2019. Three years after my sister, Suzanne, died.

I’d been feeling depressed, and was watching some program on cable.

The air conditioner was on.

The sound of something weighty, like a body, sliding across an even wooden floor filled the room. It startled me. There is no attic in this house, absolutely no access to the rafters beneath the roof. As the sound progressed across a small portion of the room, I could picture its maker. Gender-less, but firm. On its side with grayish fabric, forming deep folds as it was pulled smoothly across the “floor.”

It stopped.

I stared at the blank ceiling. Waiting. I wasn’t frightened. But I was curious. ‘Who are you?’ ran though my thoughts as I continued staring at the spot where I heard it come to a rest.

Three times a bell rang. Not a deep church bell, but rather like a 'Downton Abbey' servants’ bell, or a store counter’s bell. It didn’t echo. It just rang. Three times and stopped. I wanted to hear more. But there was only silence as I continued to wait and stare.

Only seconds had passed since the incident began, but it felt so much longer. Then the sound of a door. I couldn’t tell if it was opening or closing. But I pictured not wood but rather metal. Not a heavy metal door that would ‘clank’, echo or reverberate upon shutting but more like … an elevator? It was the shortest sound. And I can’t be sure if I’m embellishing or subtracting from its memory as I’ve tried to replay it in my mind since its occurrence. It is the most mysterious and unclear portion of the audible incident.

But it seems to have the most significance, and I don’t know why.

I had some initial 'immediate' thoughts after the incident. I immediately thought of my Sister. We had always promised IF there was a way to contact the other after our passing, we would do so. It was shortly after the third anniversary of her passing that these sounds occurred. And I do so desperately miss her. But it's the door....The bell...the body sliding on the floor, as if moving to look through a window on the floor. To stare into the room I occupied.

It didn't make sense. If anything like this really does make sense in the final analysis.

My other thought, although to be honest took longer to reach than the first. Was anti-spiritual... driven by my insatiable curiosity surrounding the least understood sound - the "door". If I were Stephen Hawking or Neil deGrasse Tyson or their ilk, perhaps I could justify such thoughts of parallel universes and other diverse planes and reasonings.

If any of you have had a similar experience or can shed any interpretations to this experience. I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Thank you for stopping by.

My childhood bf passed away 2 weeks ago. We were together for 5 yrs. We have not seen each other for 28 years. He never had a gf after me. He always tell our friends that im his one true love. I thought about him a day before he passed away of what life we could have had and how old would be our kids now. The next day i found out that he died from a heart attack. I was driving to go to work that day and there was this red car behind me driving really close, so i let him pass me but when we got to the stop light it was that same red car and i was kinda upset and look at his lisence plate to see what county is he from. I was so shock the first 4 letters of his plate is my bf name. Coincidence or what?!

WildKatWrangler on October 29, 2019:

I was wondering if the camera on iPhone 11 Pro Max, would Be considered electrical. My dad died in June, and I had been making vintage suitcase shelves, each one themed. I decided to make one for him as we were very close. So I put vintage luggage stickers of all the places that he like to go to and the things that he liked it he liked to do, on it. When I went to take a picture something happened that never happened before or since then.. my iPhone camera just started wildly spinning and I could not focus on the suitcase shelf which was sitting on top of a beautiful antique buffet. I would tip the phone one way to try to level it and it would spin wildly the other direction… Just back-and-forth for about five minutes. So I just started snapping pictures, Hoping to get it level. I laughed and said you still have it Dad... you are still funny as heck! So I got to the pictures and started deleting pictures that were going every direction when something caught my eye. There is a lady, dressed in Victorian clothes clothes looking into a antique secretary that I have that’s behind me, but she is not really there. You cannot see through her… You can’t see my nightstand or the bottom half of a painting that I painted that is behind me from where I’m taking the pictures from. So what is later one of my friends why should the picture to the edited it and I had never even thought of it. So I went home and played with filters and things and even more detail showed up. Each time I saved the original picture and went back to it. Since then, a few times there is thumping up in the other suitcase shelves... like a reminder I’m not alone. I feel that she’s peaceful and that she likes me. I feel like my dad has a friend? Are iPhone cameras Electrical?

Paula on September 08, 2019:

My 17 year old niece just died from an automobile accident, she fought hard for two weeks and we laid her to rest 2 days ago. I dreamed of her last night. Very vivid dream, colors were so bright, I was standing in a grove of trees and I thought I saw her in my peripheral, but as i turned to look a light breeze blew past me and as it did I could hear her voice saying See, then again behind me and then the the left I could barely see a faint images in my peripheral, but could hear only the word see as the breeze brushed by me. Her presence was so strong. And as I woke I could smell flowers. ??? I can’t shake the feeling she wants me to see something or look for something.

brian from uk on September 06, 2019:

a lot of the ten signs stated by lyn are true although you have to rule out the logical things first another sign can something entering your aura by your solar plexus area it feels electrical in nature this may not be not be of an a once earthly nature as human soul is very subtle in nature been born of a sensitive nature i pick things from time to time not always pleasant one morning nearly a year ago i was waking to from limbo when i suddenly had this dream i walking with the love of my life through a bridge archway arm in arm we started to pass this really old building there was this blimp or balloon that was pointed to i suddenly woke with tears in my eyes. i got dressed and washed i noticed a black ambulance in the crescent i thought thats not good usually only for people that have died at first i thought it was the lady below opposite my flat as she been ill for a long time and there was her relatives there, it turned out the ladies exe above had suddenly passed away, the thing is i remember telling him i sometime see or feel things that are not in our visual or physical range he must have remembered this and came into my dream state although i did not know who it was at the time as the dream was not very clear only the atmosphere which was one of a loving nature

Flickering lights as far away it came close and stayed with me for a little bit and then it became 2 The second one was the smaller one. And they came closer with an arm length. After about five minutes they floated away and then they disappeared I don’t know what they were but I do remember the sent of my grandfather before I saw The first one.

Beth on June 23, 2019:

My father passed away when I was a young lady. I always felt as if I was my father's favorite (even tho he loves all my siblings). The music he listened to tends to come on during important life events. When I was married, I heard one of his favorite songs twice - once before my marriage while getting ready and again as we were leaving, the same song ....as I got older other life events such as my mother being in hospice dying, I heard songs that gave me comfort randomly and telling me she was going to Heaven. Also during this time, my father, I felt as if he was trying to reach out to me through music and even with touch to tell me things...I miss both my parents so much.

It was like he was saying he guys im still here so talk about me with nice thoughts

brian from uk on June 20, 2019:

A lot of the signs seem very familar think a lot of people do not take any notice or they have coincidences i stopped thinking believing like that i think were directed by loved ones departed but the signs can be very subtle you probably heard the saying were a spiritual being have a human experience i so love the one were they sw the light i actually experienced that when my young bro passed there was no body by the bedside lamp it came and off his son daughter wife and my self witnessed it we just looked at one another when it happened

I lost my dad in aug of 2018. I live in the house we lived together in. My one clock will work then stop then work again. I’ve changed the battery in it. I have music play a lot in my head. I’m always cold at night around 10 or 11. It’s very interesting

Sharon on June 02, 2019:

My father passed away a year ago He lived in the granny flat near my house with Mum On Sundays we would all go out and now in the winter when it gets dark early we come home and find that the bedside table is on It does not come on at other times that we are aware of only if I haven't got mum home before dark on sundays

I wonder if it is him giving a sign

Lyn Adam on May 31, 2019:

Michelle Butler on May 20, 2019:

My dad was a carpenter and mechanic and he drank beer, well right after he passed away I went up to the store and my car had a strong smell of saw dust and beer! It was so strong I cracked the window and looked over at my husband and just smiled! It stayed for about 20 minutes then went away!

My dad recently past alot of criminal activity on his side of the family with his death. And 2 days later 2 grasshoppers came to my feet rolled over and died in front of me. We had a hard conflicting relationship but he came to my mind the moment they died by me. What does this mean? I am scared

Mary on April 19, 2019:

Embrace your loved ones. My mom who passed away almost 9 years ago and who we all loved still shows herself to me everyday. Her address was 177 and for the past couple months every single day I will see the number 177 randomly somewhere at work, on the road or at home. It's crazy but I believe she is telling me she is with me and my family. I hope I am correct in assuming the 177 I see are blessings and her telling me she is with me and not some kind of dire warning but for now I am embracing them and when I see 177 I can't help but smile!

brian from uk on April 11, 2019:

Hello lori miller

Sounds like you are medium, hone your gift more to help others mine is different when they want to talk to me sometimes there earth bond i see them as a bright light in my third eye but im not always aware what there trying to tell me only the feeling they catch me off guard my vibration not high enough at the time so they usually pop into my dreams and tell me what happened but i only became aware of this link a few years ago. I dont like reading people it has a draining effect this normally comes from there unconsious mind before it reaches there consious mind and yes there are negative entities out there try to rob you of your energy also happened to me. Sounds like you were born like it

Lei

Its really amazing how our passed loved ones will make an appearance if your tuned like you are you will know there ok in dreams they unmistakeable there i have had many an experience even ones that are not related to my self i think they come to people who have a high vibration and openess about them i can understand the pain you go through happened to me nine month ago my younger bro passed

Lei on April 10, 2019:

My eldest brother in law passed away 3 years ago june 2016. He was in so much pain then i prayed for him and i told him that if he want to go he can take a rest and dont worry about his children, me and my wiblings will take care of them. His wife is our eldest and 2015 she passed away before him. Then my bro inlaw said thqnk you. Then he daid he wanna go home me and my niece signed the hospital waver so thqt he can go home and see his grandkids. I went to my home and my nephews and niece ( we have the same age coz we are 12 so my nieces and nephews are just like my bro and sis)bring him to their home. Three hours after my niece sent me sms, auntie papa is gone. I called my siblings to come to oyr ancestral home to help them coz its already night and theres no phblic transportation in our place at night. Then jan 25,2017 his bday, i was doin tge laundry at our garage then i slipt ob the floor my head knocked once and i felt dizziness and something hot coming from my head and its like want ti knock again coz the pressure was really strong. I felt lije someone carried my head so it wont knock again. I git goosebumps then i stqnd like nothing happened get inside my house to get a ice to put on my wound. I took the mop to mop the blood coz i dont want my children to see the blood dont want them to worry.

Till now im thinking who carried my head? my guardian angel? My bro in law he want me to live so i can look aftwr his children and grandkids? Or my mom who passed away when i was 27? Lately i can see my mom in my dreams smiling at me, she looks happy. I know i still have a purpose in this world. Lrts forgive and live one another, seize the noment and be happy

My old partner and friend recently died from stomach cancer at 26. As I was driving to the mall with my current partner, a balloon with the words celebrate was drifting then flying in front of us as I was driving in the parking lot. Before I could take a picture the balloon disappeared down a crevice. Is this a coincidence? He died less than three days ago. After work, on the way to the mall I was taking to him in the car. Telling him that his girlfriend will be ok.

Love is eternal and that is why they are with us and protecting us from other side. God is great to allow us to feel and see things from the next world.

Debbie on February 12, 2019:

My husband passed 6 months ago after a 10 year illness. Fortunately he believed in the after life. He relied on me to pray about things he was hearing and seeing just days before he passed on. So we prayed together. I believe his angels were here with him during that time because my daughter also heard them. He comes to me in vivid dreams pennies appear and alot of things broke down soon after he passed . But there is recent home surveilance of me walking into the house and a bird appears out of no where behind me.

carol kerr on January 24, 2019:

My mum passed on the 6th November 2018 of lung cancer. She had only been given 2 weeks to live when she attended the hospital for a suspected chest infection. On the night of her passing she came to me in a dream state, she looked younger and happy, she was smiling, she showed me a white room in which she was in a hospital bed, sitting at her side was a man who had passed the year before - he was my brother-in-laws brother who my mum knew but not well. I woke up from the dream and felt the very strong presence of my mum by my bedside but I said in my head 'mum im scared' to which the presence disappeared. I got a phone call from my brother to say my mum had passed at 2.55am. I went downstairs to make a cup of tea at 3.05am to see a very large Herron sitting by the window. I knew this was a sign from my mum that she had survived death and she was free. Fly high Mum.xxx

My husband passed away around a year ago at home . Now are bedroom tv turns on in the morning around 3 am could he being trying to tell me something?

Michelle on January 14, 2019:

I saw a man, plain as day, full color. He looked at me, turned around and disappeared to an old apple tree. I described him to my fiancé and he said that's my Grampa, he spit out apple seeds and 1 grew into that tree. He passed away on the property we now live on. We've had a year of problems. Problems with the property problems with our new house. Everything that could go wrong with building our home has and feeling like someone is always there watching me. Finally I saw him. I don't feel happiness or sadness or angry from him but I do wonder why hes here and why our life is so hard now when it was so perfect before.

Dee on January 06, 2019:

Well i just saw flashing of lights where mt window is and she died 29 of dec. The day after her death the light in the den was turned on

Mimi on December 13, 2018:

Many years ago, after the burial of my mother, on a windy, cold day, a butterfly appeared on my back porch. This butterfly was resting on a dog toy that my mother had given to our Papillon. The butterfly would rise up, fly about the yard, only to return to the same spot on the dog toy. My dog was anxious to get outside to see the butterfly, but of course I was afraid it would scare it away or try and go after it, but after much insisting, I let her out. She went over, sniffed the butterfly and laid down next to it. I have a picture of the two of them. That morning was difficult for me. My mom use to say, "The day after a sad event is the worst, because it means it's a conclusion." I truly felt that. In a moment of prayer, I said to God, "I just wish I knew my mother was okay" That's when the butterfly appeared. After a couple of hours of watching the tenacity of this butterfly, I too went and sat next to it. It lifted it's wings and flew on my arm. I was never so thankful. I don't believe that every butterfly is a messenger, but I do believe that all of nature is deeply connected to us,because it is God's creation. Believe that your loved one is always with you, connected by spirit. We are more than human, we belong to God. God bless.

A couple of weeks after my fiance died a magpie was on the grass outside my house & then flew onto the passenger seat, looked at me & then flew back down & walked away

Iesha on November 29, 2018:

My bedroom light has been flickering for no reason at all and during a PE lesson a feather landed next to me. I can always hear a buzzing noise in my ear when I think of her, like shes trying to hug me tightly.

Diane on November 01, 2018:

Today on All Souls Day I returned from a walk with my dog that my late Mother loved very much. The dog was in its bed and I turned to get my phone and glasses off the nearby table. When I looked again the dog was covered with its fleece blanket.

Kloe on October 27, 2018:

What about coming home to a pile of dead leaves in the livingroom?

Christi Brenner on October 21, 2018:

I had a near death experience was so strange. I got a really high fever which turned into seizures organs starting shutting down the Dr called my children to come back to the hospital because they did not think I was going to live through the night. I went somewhere only way to describe it was like a train station people going in all different places very busy my Grandmother appeared in front of me she has passed on. Told me this was really bad illnes and it was going to be the hardest thing I have ever had to face I was given a choice to stay or go with her. I could see my body and my children out in the hall the Dr told them my organs were shutting down my daughter collapsed on the floor just sobbing my son trying to console her it made me Mad next thing I was telling the Dr I’m not dying today and few not so pleasant words. I was so angry he had hurt and upset my children I could have just slapped him but in hind sight I had made my choice to stay here. It has been awful and rewarding at the same time Transverse Myelites is a horrible disease a form of MS I’m now have been told. Recovery hmm not so much for me but I’m alive and here for my family but since this has happened to me it was very peaceful while I was talking to my Grandma I may have left with her if it had not been for my children. I now see stuff I was never so sensitive before this I’ve seen some other family members who have passed on and I have more ability in the seeing or knowing what’s coming or to come. I have always known stuff but I’ve seen spirts and they now come to me more is a little scary but I seem to know what to do. We have a lot of this kind of ability in my family but mine has just been put on overdrive since this happened to me. I saw my Dog after she passed I know she’s with my Mom with all our other animals and my brother came to visit me and I was so happy I got to hug him he told me a lot stuff when u pass he said that u have a lot to do it’s like going to work just different he says. Some people take longer to get through it all have different tasks was comforting. I know I’m a rambler but all true I know see stuff some is scary but mostly just a comfort to know we will all be together one day

One Day my Grandpa died, He came into my dream that night, I started crying and said him why are you leaving me, Please don't leave me and then he said me in tears I have to go and my dream got over just at the right time when he said that to me

Animum Noctis from On the Lake, Monticello, Georgia. on October 09, 2018:

Beautiful! I have certainly seen two instances where both myself and my Aunt were visited by an Imperial Moth and a Luna Moth within weeks of each other; she lost her one and only love of 36 years last year to COPD and I lost my first love, of four years, to a terrible motorcycle accident. We recently moved in together and the moth phenomena began. It was amazing that these huge, beautiful moths followed us during the one years anniversary of their deaths. I am engaged to be married in January; my first and only other love besides my current husband-to-be had been split up but always remained close friends until he died last summer. That pain is nothing compared to my Aunt's traumatic loss. We were both visited by two of the most gorgeous, gigantic moths within three weeks. I know have an Imperial moth tattoo in memory of my high school sweetheart.

Delboi on September 26, 2018:

I had a very close friend - a psychic brother - who died 24 years ago; I found out only in March of this year; when he was 18 (1965), he worked at a furniture mart in Buffalo, NY; as I was searching on the net for a picture of the building where he worked this past April, I caught several (maybe 4-6) very strong whiffs of the old fashioned red furniture oil that was commonly used years ago; there was no possible source for the smell... it lasted maybe 10-12 seconds and ended abruptly (no tapering).

Mary A olvera on September 21, 2018:

I had a friends that all passed away the same day and couple of days. Later i had a bright light in my room and my tv go off and on three times. And at 6am in the morning. I was gettin choke by what???? Can anyone explain that to me plz ??

Jbb2002 on September 05, 2018:

My Grandpa on my dad’s side was very ill this past few days, but he lives in Florida and I am in Michigan. My dad went down to see him recently, and now is back with me and my family. But I also have a butterfly farm at my house; I love it very much. Today I released a Male Monarch butterfly, but he was reluctant to leave and go off in his own. As I was trying to place him on a flower, he suddenly fluttered and landed on my nose; then proceeded to climb up onto my head and sit there. I’m starting to wonder if this butterfly is my Grandpa speaking to me, maybe a last “I love you.” Before he leaves? I don’t know. I really hope he is still with us though, my dad would be heartbroken...Has anyone else here had a butterfly ‘kiss’ them on the nose?

K.Balasubramanian on September 04, 2018:

Excellent article. I feel like my son who passed away 10 months back, conversing with me, right from the seventh day of HIS demise. Every day, I go upstairs (Open terrace), talk to Him and HE reiterates the fact that my wife and I should feel that HE has attained the highest stage and is with the DIVINE, rendering services to the Souls of highest level and shall reach us, with high qualities of human, in the ensuing next birth, in the same capacity of being a beloved son.

Angie on August 26, 2018:

My dad recently passed and my phone will light up light a Christmas tree at night-it will just turn on all on it's own-I know it's him I can feel his presence-songs will come on the radio and I know it's him trying to spreak to me-the radio will get staticey and I can hear his voice coming through-I have had other encounters but none like this-I truely hope he doesn't stop it gives me some kind of peace knowing he's there looking after me and my youngest son as they were very close I feel blessed to have these encounters...

Kila on August 24, 2018:

Thomas Nangenda on August 17, 2018:

My father past on the year 2004, I was not really close to him since I was leaving with my Mom. 3 years back I was beaten with a bottle on my forehead,as I was falling something about him came in my thought. I could not remember what real happened.

The 15/08/2018 I have a dream that his spirits came in my room but I couldn't see anything, I tried to look but he was the whole time avoiding to be seen.

Mona De'leon on August 17, 2018:

My love one came to me in butterfly form while I was at the beach 2 days ago. Stayed with me for an hour I walked home and the butterfly stayed all the way. That never happened to me.

Dee on August 16, 2018:

My aunt who passed, kept showing up in places I visited. I would see her profile in people who were several feet away from me. One time she touched my shoulder. The final time I tried to follow her in a grocery store but she disappeared. She never appeared in dreams.

Donna on August 09, 2018:

I can tell when my mom is present, I get a strong smell of cigarettes. She smoked until she was 85! Towards the end she would tell me she didn't know why she was still here... I told her it was for me, but if she really wanted to go, I was Ok with it. She knew I loved her and her me. I do miss her so.

Carla on August 06, 2018:

I woke up to what appeared to be two cloudy but oily clouded spots on my grandmothers mirror that I have in my bedroom. It happened overnight and I couldn't find any other reason why they could be there. Has anyone ever experienced this?

Mike Hatch on August 02, 2018:

When my father passed away I asked him if he can get in touch with me some way somehow he came into my dream and told me I have to come back and we paint all the walls and a crack in the ceiling with that the phone rang woke me up out of my dream and it was the woman that I painted her apartment 8 months prior to my father's death he told me I have to repaint all the walls and fix the crack in the ceiling with that the phone rang and it was that woman that asked me to come back and repaint all the rules and fix the crack in the ceiling that blew my mind cuz my father just told me in my dream and that's the God's honest truth

Suzanne Bliss on July 29, 2018:

My brother passed away 11 days ago of four and half year of pancreatic cancer. Yes I miss him so, we were sixteen months apart, him being the older. I saved a lady bug on Friday, 8 days ago, it's winter here, I put this lady bug on a rose with love. I also looked at a clould late yesterday that changed from beautiful animal to beautiful animal. I had a dream the other night that there were so many black umbrellas hanging up, closed, at a work place, outside, all hanging up along the railings, please let me pass I said to all the men, I must get through, I pushed my way through. I did get through but with so very many black umbrellas hanging on the railings dripping with water, I think they were tears. My brother and I were so close, I do believe in the crossing over. Am I able to believe in the validation that Geoff, is sending me a sign. If not it is OK. I just went outside for a break for a few minutes and I live in a valley; The wind is very strong up in the hills, but no wind below where I am standing and I am not bull crapping, but my long hair is being blowing all over the place. I have come inside and continued to finish this posting. I am so tired to reply to Geoff's facebook condolences and to our parents to help them to grieve, and I am so greatful to be able to do this. But, my dear brother, all I need to know, if it's OK , it that, are you OK, have you crossed over? and are you now in peace and in the afterlife where you can connect with others that you love. I so very much hope so and I will promise to look after Amy and the girl and our mum and dad. Thank you for all that you done for me and looking after me I am so greatful and proud of you and will always hold you in my heart and love, your sister Suzannexxxx

Eirina Gkini on July 26, 2018:

Wow, I've experienced too many of these to describe! Two visitation dreams from my grandfather, but especially after my boyfriend John died 16 years ago...a touch, just knowing he's there, without seeing or hearing anything, things disappearing and then appears again, right where I knew a left them, feeling the bed sinking as if someone is sitting on it, a white dove tried to get inside last year, I scared it off by mistake, but it didn't leave! For about a quarter of an hour or so, it just stood there looking at me, then looking away then look at me again! It was magical! TV changing it channel when I was halfway to the remote, TV turning itself on, at nights, even today the fan stopped working for no reason, I turned it back on, no problems!

Most of the experiences were soon after he died but last year I was a carer and many times my late shift would end after ten. I had a parking permit for a car park about ten minutes away from home. Every night walking home I was afraid and every night he was walking with me! I didn't see him, I just knew! It felt so good... I apologize for writing like that but I am in tears right now!

Denise L. Stuart on July 22, 2018:

I saw a huge crow caw at me and fly out if my dads front bush after going upstairs and praying and setting his spirit free through prayer and opening a window in the house in case he needed to be released. Since, while cleaning out this house family members and I, 5 ppl total saw a beer can on the table turn back and forth , 5 minutes. Everyone saw it. My dad was not a drinker but everyone there was that day. What does this mean? Also the day after his passing, I played his two fav songs and one that came to me "love is all around you - Tesla" I felt such strong feelings about this song, since his death, never before. I have continued waking up singing it and heard it weeks back to back on every station while in car.
