Moving on after a loved one has passed often feels impossible. You can’t get through the day without thinking about them, missing them and wishing they were nearby. Some believe that after a loved one passes, they may not be as far away as you think. If you have strange experiences after a loved one dies, it may be a sign that they are trying to reach you. Opening yourself up to their message could help bring you the peace, comfort or answers you’ve been searching for.
Here are five clear signs that a lost loved one is near by and attempting to contact you:
1. You Dream About Them
After a loved one passes, you may see them again in your dreams. If you constantly dream about them, it may be a sign that they are trying to send you a message. Pay close attention to your dreams. Don’t write them off. They could contain a message or the answer to a question you’ve been searching for.
2. You Sense Their Presence
You may sense your loved one’s presence in a sudden drop in temperature or a slight chill that you instantly notice. A cold chill or heavy air could mean that the spirit of your loved one is nearby. The next time you sense their presence, embrace it. Open yourself up to the message they might be trying to send you.
3. Electronic Devices Keep Acting Up
Some people believe that the spirit world attempts to make contact using electricity. After a loved one passes, you may notice flickering lights or TV channels that suddenly change. Your computer or other electronic devices may begin to act strange. Electronic devices that act up could be a sign that your loved one is trying to get your attention.
4. You Smell Familiar Scents
Smell is the strongest of the five senses. We often associate certain smells with certain people, places and memories. If you suddenly notice a familiar scent, something that makes you think of a loved one who has passed, it may be a sign that they are nearby.
5. Random Objects Suddenly Appear
Some believe that the spirits of our loved ones place objects in unusual places to get our attention. They may stick loose change, feathers or other objects in random spots that they know we will stumble upon. This is a small gesture to remind us that they are nearby to comfort us in times of need.
