There are SO many signs from heaven! So many awesome ways that our loved ones in the Spirit world let us know that they are around. Have you had any of the signs on our list?
Before tackling the signs from heaven, let’s talk for a minute about why Spirits visit us in the first place.
First… because they can! Let’s face it, being free from an earthly body is really freeing! Instead of being tied down to the earthly realm, spirits are balls of energy that can zoom around and manifest situations quickly.
So, if they can communicate with their loved ones, why wouldn’t they?
Another reason we get signs from heaven is because our loved ones want to “check in” and let us know they “arrived” on the other side safely. With all of the fear and doubt surrounding what happens to the soul after death, they want to put your mind at ease that they are safe and happy.
They want you to know that they do still exist, and that you don’t need to worry about them. They are still around, but in a different form.
We often explain death to a child by saying that their loved one is now in heaven and watching over them, and it’s true. Spirit comes around to celebrate our life-changing events and comforts us when we have a setback or tragedy.
Your deceased loved ones may also have messages for you. This is especially common when a person dies suddenly and was unable to say goodbye or pass on information they wanted you to have.
Overall, spirits who have passed over are a chatty bunch, and signs from heaven are the ways they let us know they are around and love us. Here’s what to watch for:
Signs from Heaven
1. Vivid Dreaming
One of the most common signs from heaven – and most remarkable – are when Spirits visit us in our dreams. Yes, you read that right – visit us. How is this possible?
When we sleep, our logical minds aren’t in charge anymore, our subconscious minds are. This makes it MUCH easier for the Spirit world to connect with us.
When loved ones communicate with us in a dream, we usually feel a sense of peace and notice a light around them. It’s an amazing experience to have!
Spirit may “speak” to you, tell you they love you, and even give you a message to pass along to another family member. If you think you have had such a visitation in a dream, don’t let your logical self talk you out of believing!
2. Moving Objects
Now, this isn’t like Poltergeist or anything. They aren’t going to start throwing stuff at you.
But our loved ones in heaven will move objects to get your attention. For example, perhaps you’ve noticed that that bottle of perfume isn’t exactly where you thought you left it. Or “someone” keeps moving the TV remote.
3. Nature sightings – plants and animals
Those in the Spirit World will often manipulate nature to grab our attention by putting something unusual in our path.
Maybe you have never seen a hummingbird at your house, even though you have lived there for years, and suddenly, one comes to visit daily. Flowers and animals are often used this way by spirits.
Sometimes the plants or animals come to you out of season, like seeing a robin in the winter when they should have migrated to warm weather.
Or the plant or animal may have associations with the person who passed over. For example, your grandmother loved irises, and an iris suddenly starts growing in your flower bed – when you KNOW you never planted an iris bulb.
What a delightful, surprising sign from heaven that your grandmother is still with you!
4. Your pets see Spirit
You may notice your pets acting strangely after someone you love passes. This is because animals have high vibrational energy, which means they can sense – and even SEE – the spirits who come to visit!
You may notice them staring at something intently that you can’t see, “talking” much more than usual or acting extremely excitedly for no apparent reason. These are all common signs from heaven.
5. Technical “snafus”
One of the most common signs from heaven is when electrical and technological devices get glitchy.
And no wonder. These days, many people are more “tuned into” their cell phones and iPads than to what is going on in the “real world”. This is great for our loved ones in heaven, because they can easily manipulate our devices to let us know they’re around.
Some people haven even reported getting text messages from heaven!
You might notice your devices turning on and off randomly or behaving strangely in other ways, like your computer suddenly playing a video that you didn’t have pulled up.
Even if your loved one wasn’t a techie, they may use these devices as a way to gain your attention.
Remember that when they pass over, spirits are helped and taught by others who have been there a while, and they may have been told that using electrical or technical devices are a good way to communicate with the living.
6. Sensing their Presence
If you were especially close to the one who recently past and spent a great deal of time with them, you may be able to sense their presence.
You may have the sensation of someone sitting next to you, someone walking into the room or watching you, even though you can’t see anyone.
Many people find the connection with spirits of their loved ones comforting during that difficult time of mourning. Simply invite them in and let them know that you are open to receiving their communications (Yes, they can hear you!)
Ask them to send you a sign when they are around. And don’t be surprised when they do! Pay attention to your environment and trust your instincts.
