Spirits have different methods for making contact with the living. You will often feel a spirit’s presence, but you may also see other signs.
How a spirit makes contact depends on the relationship you had with that person, and on your particular extra-sensory perceptions. Here are the ten most common signs you are being contacted by a loved one who has passed away.
1. A Felt Presence
The most common way to know you’re being visited is, you just know. When people pass on, they are freed from their physical form, but their love for you can still be felt in every nerve of your body.
If you feel a strange sense that the person you lost is standing right next to you, it’s because they are. The body just can’t be there anymore.
2. Dream Visitation
Because spirits can no longer speak to us in person, they often rely on dreams to make contact. When you’re dreaming, it opens your spirit to interact on non-physical planes. It is very common for spirits to use dreams as a way to say goodbye if they didn’t get a chance.
Clairalience is extra-sensory perception of smell. Do you ever just smell a familiar scent that seems to come out of nowhere? It might be a sign of visitation. It is extremely common for people to experience phantom smells, especially if the person who has passed was associated with a particularly strong smell.
Clients often report phantom smells of perfume, or sometimes a combination of cigarettes and leather if the person was known to smoke in their motorcycle jacket.
It is also rather common for people to hear the deceased person’s voice in their head. Once people are released from their bodies, they are able to occupy our minds and often speak directly to us.
Be aware that when making psychic contact with a spirit, they can also hear your thoughts. To invite a spirit to occupy your thought space, keep your thoughts loving and kind.
While clairvoyance is one of the rarer forms of extra-sensory perception, it has been known to happen. If you happen to see figures following you, it can be a sign of visitation.
6. Angel Numbers
Do you ever look at the clock and happen to notice it's exactly 11:11? It could be a sign of visitation.
It’s especially auspicious if the person’s birthday keeps coming up. Or if your deceased loved one was a gambler with lucky numbers, this is often a way those spirits make contact.
7. Strangely Relevant Media Messages
It’s not uncommon for people to be visited through the media they regularly consume. For example, let’s say you’re watching TV and the characters find themselves in a situation that hits a little close to home. This is often a sign that your loved ones are present with you and want to get a message through.
8. Found Objects From The Deceased
Sometimes people get premonitions of their own deaths, and leave things behind to serve as messages to the living later on.
Often, people get visited by finding letters, diaries, or sentimental objects from the deceased. Often these are thought to be lost or you might have never known they existed.
9. Itching Memorial Tattoos
One of the more modern signs of visitation is an itching or burning sensation on memorial tattoos. It’s also known that jewelry from the deceased can also feel strangely hot when you’re being visited.
One of the least mentioned but most common forms of visitation is simple bliss. Oftentimes when our loved ones are visiting us, they just want us to take in how beautiful life is. They’ll often enter our psyches and say “Hey! This life! It’s amazing and also short! Slow down and take it in.”
A general warm sensation of love is a common sign of visitation.
What Does It Mean?!
So you’re clearly being visited from beyond the grave. Why? What does it mean?
A medium can make a direct connection with the dead. If you have any unanswered questions, a medium can facilitate a connection so your dead loved one can give you detailed answers. A medium can also help you navigate the grieving process and find closure.
Final Resting Thoughts
Just because someone dies doesn’t mean they stop loving you. Most people are frequently visited by loved ones who have passed away.
The best way to invite visitations is through a positive mindset. Remember, these ghosts can hear your thoughts, and it upsets them when they hear you speak badly to yourself. And if you’re really perplexed by the messages you’re getting, a medium can help you understand.
