15 signs that your dead loved one is closeby
Have you ever vowed to haunt someone (or some people) once you pass away, no matter what? The intentions don’t always have to be sinister; many individuals simply desire to look down on and to look out for their loved ones after they themselves have experienced death. Has anyone ever promised to haunt you from their grave?! Read the list below to discover if you’ve been haunted yourself—and to find out if the spirit is or was a friend or a foe.
#1: They appear in dreams
While sleeping, the energy of all human beings vibrates on the same level (or close to it) as that of spirits. With the aid of your subconscious, you can communicate with spirits, and spirits can communicate with you.
#2: You seem to “smell” them
Smells are frequently (and automatically) associated with memories, so spirits will often attempt to make you aware of their presence by compelling you to sense their scents. These could relate to a favourite perfume or cologne they always used to wear, or even to a particular type of food or drink they always preferred.
#3: You lose things and find them in unexpected places.
If you can’t seem to find an item in the place where you’re convinced you left it—and if you instead locate it in a place that you never would have put it—it’s quite likely that a spirit has moved it there. And if it’s an item which is associated with a particular lost loved one, there’s an even better chance that that person is the one who is communicating with you.
#4: You hear uncanny songs and playlists.
Everyone hears a song that reminds them of someone who has passed away every once in while, but if you find that this is happening very frequently, it could be a sign from the other side. More specifically, if you hear a string of songs which remind you of a distinct person who has passed away, it’s even more likely that the person in question is contacting you.
#5: You experience thoughts that don’t seem like your own.
If you ever get the urge to do or think about something which is out of your usual character, it’s definitely possible that a deceased loved one is really the person who is urging you. Oftentimes these thoughts and urges are meant to help you (or even to save you), so do heed them.
#6: You receive several unexpected gifts.
Unexpected things happen to people every day, but they’re usually not all good, and all of them definitely aren’t always “gifts.” If you’ve somehow managed to land something like a loving partner, a better career, and a great deal on a new car or house (all in short order), it’s a very good sign that you’re getting help from someone beyond this realm.
#7: You experience fateful meetings.
If you just happen to run into someone who you haven’t seen in years and they’re able to help you out significantly with a major problem(s) you’ve been trying to solve—or if you happen to meet someone new who does this for you—a lost loved one just might have made it so. Of course coincidences happen all the time, but extremely positive and productive coincidences like this could easily be something more.
#8: You sense their “living” presence at their funeral.
Many people have stories about “sensing” the person who is deceased at their funeral, and it’s possible that some of these stories are merely wishful thoughts. However, if you feel an intense sensation (or even a touch on the shoulder when there’s no one behind you!) then it’s a real possibility that the deceased is paying her or his respects to you, in turn.
#9: Your pets unexpectedly act “out of this world.”
Animals can sense spirits far more easily than humans can, so if your pet all of the sudden begins acting out of character and there’s genuinely no reason whatsoever to explain it, then the reason could very well be that a spirit is in the room. This could be a sign for you to consciously heighten your senses to make you more open to the spiritual connection yourself.
#10: You know you forgot to do something, but it’s done regardless.
If you always used to leave the toilet seat up and a loved one who has since passed away always used to scold you for it, they may take matters into their own hands if you continue to ignore their advice (or lectures) once they’ve passed on.
#11: You suddenly feel the urge to make the world better in a big way.
“A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.”—Mahatma Gandhi
#12: You lose something you’re convinced was stored safely.
“All that spirits desire, spirits attain.”—Khalil Gibran
#13: You feel overjoyed out of the blue for no apparent reason.
“Kind words not only lift our spirits in the moment they are given, but they can linger with us over the years.”—Joseph B. Wirthlin
#14: You’ve miraculously healed from an injury with no treatment whatsoever.
“If people would get in touch with their spirits, they would be able to heal, emotionally and physically.”—Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
#15: You’re haunted by past misdeeds.
“There is no refuge from memory and remorse in this world. The spirits of our foolish deeds haunt us, with or without repentance.”—Gilbert Parker
