After death communications are the little (and amazing) ways that our loved ones in heaven let us know that their spirit is still around. There are so many ways that those in spirit connect with us. Today, we’re going to focus on some of the most common signs.
- How will I know when my mom is around – what signs should I look for?
- A picture was moved in my house – did my sister move it?
These are common questions I get asked working as a spiritual medium.
The answer is that there are many ways that after death communications take place. In other words, there are all sorts of signs from heaven.
I’ve heard of everything from objects being moved to text messages being sent. It never ceases to amaze me what our loved ones will do to show us that they are still a part of our lives!
One piece of advice: A lot of people miss signs from above because they over analyze the situation or say things such as that couldn’t be dad or, it was probably just my imagination.
If you’re feeling that a sign is from your loved one, it probably is. Just enjoy it and smile!
1. Who Turned Out the Lights?
Our loved ones in heaven love to let us know that they’re around. One of the most common forms of after death communications that spirits use is manipulating electronics.
After all, what better way to get our attention!
Anything electrical can be manipulated, such as:
- Television set – turned on, off, or changed channel
- Lights – flickered, or turned off or on
- Alarm clock – going off when it wasn’t set
- Radio – changing stations, turning off or on
In my house, our hard wired smoke detectors go off for no reason. It makes my husband a little nervous to think of spirits communicating with us after death, but I don’t mind because I know it’s just my grandfather. My husband used to love to play pranks on my grandfather when he was living, so I tease him that this is how he’s getting back at him!
2. Nature, Symbols, and Signs
This is a type of after death communications that I hear of very often. Because it’s so personal, it’s one of my favorite ways that our loved ones in heaven connect with us.
Signs and Symbols
Frequently, after the death of a loved one, the family will receive the same signs from heaven. For example, maybe several family members heard music or saw a robin.
When my grandfather passed away, the number 11 seemed to be everywhere.
- When I received the call that he had passed away, it was 11:11.
- The evening of my grandfather’s wake, my brother bought a lottery ticket and won. The winning number was 11.
- After the funeral, our family got together for breakfast. My uncle used the coat-check service at the restaurant. He was given a ticket so he could retrieve it later… the number on it was 11.
- Going through his belongings, we discovered that 11 was a significant number for my grandfather when he was in the military. We were shocked, because prior to his death, we didn’t know this.
Those in spirit can also send us their favorite bird or flower. My friend’s father loved blue jays. When she is thinking of her dad, she often sees them in her yard.
When you see a bird or small animal around that is meaningful to you, they are often sent by your loved one. Your loved one does not turn into a bird, they send the birds to you. (I’ve been asked about that a few times, so wanted to mention it.)
3. Pennies from Heaven
Ever found a penny and wondered how the heck it got there? It may have been a gift from the other side.
Pennies from heaven are a quick and easy way that our loved ones in spirit let us know they’re thinking of us. It’s a fun form of after death communications and their way of saying ‘hello’ and letting you know that they are around.
If you find one, take a look at the date on the penny to see if it has any significance. After my grandfather passed, I found three pennies in my living room – they were all from the year I was born! Coincidence? I think not.
4. Ringing the Doorbell
Doorbell ringing is another type of after death communications.
Many people have reported their doorbell mysteriously ringing after they’ve lost a loved one. When they get to the door to open it, there’s no one there. When this happens, it’s usually shortly after the death of a loved one.
5. Music – A Beautiful Form of After Death Communications!
Have you ever been thinking of a loved one in heaven and then heard one of their favorite songs on the radio? This can be another form of after death communications.
Sometimes, we can even hear music when no one is around! This happened to my dad after my grandmother passed away. He heard the most beautiful, angelic music!
This happened to me recently as well. While helping my mom with her spring cleaning, we stumbled upon some jewelry that my grandmother gave her before she passed away (same grandma I was just referring to).
Since this was my dad’s mom, and my parents are now divorced, my mother gave the jewelry to me.
A couple of days later, I had an appointment for massage therapy. I was telling my massage therapist the story when we both started hearing music!
It was a warm, rainy day, and there was no one in the entire building except for Susan and me. She looked at me and said, “Do you hear that music?” I said, “Yep, it must be my grandma!” It was as if there was a radio right in the room with us playing very soft classical music.
It’s amazing what our family and friends in spirit can do (even our animal friends). When these after death communications take place, enjoy them! As I was writing that little section about my grandmother, the printer in the other room came on all by itself! Hi grandma!
