How are our loved ones communicating after death? After a loved one dies, it’s totally normal to seek out communication with them. In fact, psychic mediums have long heard things like, “If I could just talk to my loved one… one more time.”
As a medium myself, I can tell you that being the vessel for a dearly departed husband to tell his wife how much he loves her is an unforgettable experience!
The great news is, the afterlife is not that all far away. :) In fact, our loved ones are often MUCH closer than we think.

Loved Ones Communicating After Death – 5 Signs
Imagine I walked you into one of those really big, old flea markets. There’s stuff piled high, old trinkets in the corner, and stacks of books everywhere.
Then, I told you to “find it.”
If you have no idea what you’re looking for, it’s worse than searching for a needle in a haystack…
Searching for our loved one’s communication after death is kinda like hunting for a mystery object in a flea market.
But, once you know what you’re looking for, you can recognize it as soon as you see it!
Of course, everyone is different. Some loved ones will prefer certain methods over others, and some may have special, “inside signs” that only you would know.
However, here are some ways loved ones can communicate after death…
Loved Ones Communicating After Death — Texting
Yep, like on your brand new iPhone X! As a spiritual medium, I’ve heard all kinds of amazing stories of after death communications.
In the last few years, I’ve started hearing about a new way our family and friends in spirit seem to be reaching out… by sending text messages!
My dad and son recently experienced this phenomenon…
They were in the basement exercising and set their phones aside. At the end of the workout, my son noticed that he received a text simply saying, “Hi.”
The crazy part?
The text was sent from my dad’s cell phone… which had been sitting beside my son’s phone.
Neither one had been touched during the workout, and there was no one else in the house at the time.
The most interesting thing is that we had been reminiscing about my grandmother in spirit a lot that week, so I just smiled and said “Hi Grandma, I love you,” back to her.
Music from Heaven
Have you ever been thinking of a loved one in heaven and then heard one of their favorite songs on the radio?
Coincidence? I think not!
Or maybe you’ve heard music playing even when no one is around…
In fact, this happened to my dad when my grandma passed away. He was all alone and suddenly he heard the most beautiful, angelic music. He knew she was connecting with him from the Other Side.
It happened to me recently as well…
I was telling my massage therapist about some jewelry I found of my grandmas (the same grandma I just referred to), and we both started hearing music!
There was no one in the entire building except for us, and 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.
Dreams from Spirit
Dreams are probably the most common ways people think about their loved ones communicating with them after death. I guess it’s a little easier for our logical brain to accept a dream than a text from heaven. ;)
But dreams from your loved ones can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
For instance, you may:
- Dream about a certain vacation spot that you visited with your loved one
- Hear your loved one’s favorite song in your dream
- See yourself having a conversation with your loved one.
One surefire way to tell your dream is a “visitation dream” from your loved one? They seemed to glow… Because those in Spirit are pure energy, when they visit us in our dreams they usually have a glowing, translucent quality.
Remember, dreaming of dead people is not scary or creepy at all. It’s just another comforting way your loved ones visit.
Through a Psychic Medium
Of course, your loved ones can always use a psychic medium to communicate after death. (Read: Will We Meet Our Loved Ones After Death?)
I have stories that would fill this entire post about husbands communicating through mediums to tell their wives happy anniversary, siblings offering love from heaven, and even pets saying hello!
Basically, psychic mediums help bridge the gap between the living and those who have passed. They energetically connect with those who have passed away, and bring forth validation of their existence like their… personality, physical appearance, favorite hobbies, etc.
Then, they use that connection to pass on messages from the other side. Messages from heaven can be uplifting, comforting, and even funny!
If you are looking for a medium, I like the mediums here, because they are the ones who helped me after my aunt passed away. I also like that there rates are very affordable. They have a 15-minute for $10 option or a $1 per minute option. When you call, ask to speak to a medium.
Visiting a psychic medium after a loved ones passing can not only allow you to communicate with them, it can provide closure and peace of mind. (Another fabulous modality for grief relief is yoga.)
Signs and Symbols
Lastly, your loved ones can communicate after death using signs and symbols. These are often unique to the person and the person they’re communicating with.
For instance, 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. Then, the evening of my grandfather’s wake, my brother bought a lottery ticket and won… and the winning number was 11.
- After the funeral, our family got together for breakfast. My uncle used the coat-check service at the restaurant, and his ticket number on it was 11!
- When 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!
