I know there are some skeptics out there who want concrete proof of life after death.
While no one can really give concrete proof, visions and images of spirit are pretty remarkable.
Following is the incredible after death visit that my grandmother Mary experienced:
Shortly after my grandfather passed away, my grandmother was in church with her eyes closed in prayer. She’s always been a woman of faith, and she relied on her spirituality to carry her through this difficult time in her life.
After a few moments in prayer, she opened her eyes. When she did, she saw my grandfather, her deceased husband, standing there smiling at her. She says the vision only lasted a few seconds, but was as real as anything she’s ever seen.
Just like many others, my grandmother has lost many people in her lifetime and believes in the afterlife, but she explained that this particular experience was life changing.
When this happened, several people said things like, “I wonder why he visited her at church and not at home.” Here are two possible reasons:
- Church is a sacred place and it is where my grandmother spends her time in prayer. When she is in prayer, she is essentially in a meditative state which would make spirit communication easier.
- My grandfather knows that she attends church services faithfully every Sunday. This could be a factor, too.
I agree that a vision would be indisputable proof of life after death! I am so glad she got to have this special moment.
Types of Spirit Visions
Full-on Vision: A vision like my grandmother had is one of the rarer types of spirit communication. If you have had an experience like this, you may have seen your loved one in solid form or they may have seemed translucent.
Photographs: Another common way that people see their loved ones after they’ve passed is in photographs.
I’ve heard many stories of people seeing outlines of their loved ones or orbs in photos that are taken after a loved one passes.
(Note: Some paranormal professionals feel that solid orbs are a better indicator of true spirit presence than translucent orbs, which can sometimes be dust particles).
2. Invisible Touch
Have you ever felt a gentle touch on your head, arm, or back, but no one was there? Or how about feeling like someone stroked your hair?
This is another sign that our loved ones are around and, just like with orbs in photographs, many people consider “spirit touch” to be evidence of proof of life after death.
Many people report feeling especially comforted by the phenomenon of spirit touch, because it’s as if they’re loved one is reaching out to say, I’m here. I love you.
3. Are Smells Also Proof of Life After Death?
The answer to that question is yes! Smells are a common way that our loved ones in heaven let us know that they are around.
Usually, it will be something associated with the person in spirit:
- a certain perfume or flower
- a favorite food
- cigarette or cigar smoke
- or any other scent that reminds you of them
You will smell it suddenly, in your home or car, even when the windows and doors are closed.
4. Sweet Dreams
The proof of life after death comes in many forms, including dreams. This has happened to me, and countless other people I’ve talked to.
Have you ever dreamed of a loved one that’s passed away? A dream that was so vivid that it felt real?
Well, the reason it felt real was because it was real. Those in spirit often use dreams as a way to visit us.
Here are some signs that your dream was actually a visit from the other side:
- The dream is very vivid
- Your loved one is happy, smiling, and free of illness and worry
- Communication may have been telepathic – there were no spoken words
- The experience was emotional – you may wake up with tears in your eyes
5. Moving Objects
The sky really is the limit when it comes to after death communications. Moving objects is another way that our loved ones in heaven get our attention.

The object can be anything, but is often something that is significant to you: A special photo, piece of jewelry, etc. In the story below, it was a prayer book that had significance:
Avoid This Common Mistake
When your family members or friends on the other side take the time and energy to show you proof of life after death, cherish it! They are around to visit and comfort you, so enjoy the moment.
I hear so many people asking questions like, “Do you really think that was my dad?” Don’t second guess yourself. Instead, be comforted knowing that your loved one is around.
