As a spiritual medium, I’ve had the pleasure of hearing incredible stories of after death communications. In the last year or so, I’ve started hearing about a new way our family and friends in spirit seem to be reaching out: By sending us text messages!
How I Realized Our Loved Ones in Heaven are Texting
Kari is a client of mine. I had been working with her and several members of her family since her dad, Bruce, passed away. Bruce had a dynamic personality while he was here on the earth plane, and continues to have one on the Other Side.
I love connecting with all of the spirits I work with, but there is something extra special about Bruce. He always manages to get my attention, even when I’m not working. I’ve often joked with his family that I’m going to set up my guest room for him!
One day, Bruce came around and gave me a message for Kari. I emailed her the message and she thanked me, as always.
Two weeks later, I received the following message from Kari (shared with her permission):
“I was texting my sister and I was copying and pasting a text that my friend had sent me that I wanted [my sister] to read. Anyway, the strange thing was when I clicked paste OUR entire EMAIL correspondence [about my dad] from a couple of weeks ago was what went into our text message.
I don’t even understand how that was physically possible and it’s ironic to me that out of ALL my emails, there you were in my text message! I felt the need to share that strange occurrence with you.”
Instead of the text that Kari intended to send, the email I sent her with the messages from her dad in spirit was sent to her sister. I thought that was amazing, but I was still skeptical. Loved ones in heaven reaching out via text? I needed more proof… and I got it when a client named Susan contacted me.
“I was doing dishes one day, and thinking about my father. I normally get signs from him all the time, but lately, I wasn’t feeling his spirit around. So I said, Dad, send me a sign that you’re around. Do something. Send me a text!
Of course, Susan was half joking when she said this. After all, our loved ones in heaven don’t text…or do they? Read on and decide for yourself:
A couple of days later, Susan’s sister, Bonnie, had just gotten into her car when she received a text message from a friend. It said, “We all need to get together for a girls night.”
Bonnie realized she forgot something, and had to run back inside her house to grab it before she had a chance to respond. Less than five minutes later, she came back out to her car and picked up her cell phone to respond to her friend’s text.
To her surprise, a response had already been sent! It said one word, “ditto.”
Bonnie was in awe:
- She never responded to the text
- No one else had access to her phone or car during that short time
- She never used the word ditto
Bonnie called Susan to tell her what happened. Susan was in shock, “Oh my gosh,” she said,”I asked dad to send me a text message. Maybe it was him!”
Ditto is not a word that anyone in the family used, so no one knows where that came from. When Susan told me this story, we joked that the word “ditto” was made popular in the movie Ghost. It was a word that a man in spirit passed onto his girlfriend through a medium.
Of all of the stories I’ve heard about loves ones in heaven connecting with us through electronics, I have to say, this last story from my dear client Dejah really amazed me!
Dejah’s brother, Jason, had passed away four months earlier when she received a notification on her cell phone that she had a text from him.
To the right you’ll find a screen shot. The number one with the circle around it indicates that there is one message… from Jason! The most fascinating part (as if we could top a text from heaven) is that this notification appeared around Jason’s birthday.
Here are Dejah’s own words about what happened:
“For Jason’s entire birthday week last October this notification was on my phone from his contact ID. I kept pressing it to view the ‘message’ but none could be found and then it vanished about a week later. Out of ALL the contacts in my phone HIS was the one that did this and wouldn’t go away. It was like he was telling me ‘I’m here with you.’
My brother and I shared a love for sci fi movies and Star Wars was one of our favorites. One of the notifications on my cell phone is the sound of a lightsaber. When we were arranging his memorial and packing his house, my phone would RANDOMLY just make the lightsaber noise! I am a FIRM believer that spirit uses these electronic devices to communicate with us here on earth.”
Hearing this story totally convinced me that our loved ones in heaven are connecting with us through texts and cell phones. The lengths they go through to get our attention shows us how much they love us.
What do YOU Think?
It really does seem that our loved ones in heaven are using technology to get our attention and let us know that they're still in our lives. If you have had an experience like this, please let us know in the comments. You may also like to read about more signs from heaven:

Update: A few months after this post came out, my dad and son experienced this phenomenon.
One day, they were in the basement exercising. As always, they both set their phones aside so they wouldn't get damaged. At the end of the workout, my son noticed that he received a text. It said one word, "Hi."
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. I smiled and said "Hi Grandma, I love you," back to her.
What do you think? Are our loved ones in heaven really texting? You've got to admit, these stories are pretty amazing.
