Clear Signs a Deceased Loved One is With You

mediumship Sep 20, 2021


Losing someone you love can cause immense emotional suffering. There is no correct way to move through the grieving process and healing is an individual experience that often leaves grievers feeling alone or misunderstood. For some clients I work with, the loss of a loved one causes them to awaken to their own spiritual journey and seek a deeper spiritual connection to their loved one in the Spirit World. Many have felt, sensed, heard and seen signs they feel are from specific loved ones. 


Your loved ones that have passed to the Spirit World are always with you and want to bring you the comfort of knowing that they are still present in your lives. If you are open to receiving them, they will send you signs and validations of their presence in your life. It takes energy for your loved ones to communicate and often the signs may be subtle. 


How to recognize signs from your deceased loved ones


1. You Feel It 


Your body is like an antenna for energetic, psychic, and spirit information. When you are experiencing something profound that expands your consciousness, you will feel it. You may have a physical sensation when receiving a sign that your loved ones in spirit are around. Some people say they get “chills” or feel a difference in body temperature. Sometimes it may be that you simply feel a subtle change in the atmosphere, and emotionally you may feel very loved or loving. 


2. Divine Timing


Signs, synchronicities and validations are likely to come to you when you are struggling, in need or ask for help from the Spirit World. Your loved ones may send you a sign to let you know that you are “on the right path” or validation for hard choices you’ve had to make, when you’re trying something new, going through a major change, taking a leap of faith or learning about spiritual topics. 


3. Signs Through Nature  


Being in nature can restore your energy and allow you to feel the natural vibration of the earth and elements. Just as your deceased loved ones have a spirit, you, yourself have a spirit and are both connected to all life including plants and animals energetically. Being in nature allows you to be immersed in life that is ever-changing and many people feel they receive signs when they are outdoors and connecting this way. Perhaps a butterfly that lands on you, causes you to think of a loved one, or an animal that comes unusually close to you. Many people find shapes and patterns or synchronicities in rocks, leaves, or the clouds. Try to remain open and unattached as you allow these signs to come to you. 


4. You are Present 


Over focusing on, and constantly looking everywhere for specific signs, can limit your ability to receive them. There is no limit to how often we can “ask” for signs, but once you do, allow the universe time to respond. Being overly focused on a specific idea of the sign you want or trying to control the process does not lead to more signs and is never helpful in creation. You create your life from the present moment, from now. Constantly looking forwards or backward leaves no time to experience the present moment, which is when you are able to connect with your loved ones who have passed, your guides, or the universe. Set your intention to receive signs and then go experience life. 


5. Numbers and Synchronicities


Many people notice numbers, patterns and synchronicities. The exact number you see repeating isn’t important, rather it’s the importance you place on it. If you associate a certain loved one with the number “77” and you see that sign on a license plate in front of you when you are having a particularly tough day, you get to your office and notice you have 77 new notifications, the following week you are meeting a new client and notice their address is 77. You can be sure this synchronicity is a sign from your loved one that they are around you supporting you. Numbers don’t need to appear in synchronicity to be meaningful, simply having the thought that you miss your friend and then noticing the time is 4:44pm can be meaningful especially when accompanied by a feeling or knowing. Try not to become overly focused; simply be open to these signs and allow them to be brought to your attention.  


6. You Hear Your Song 


You turn on your car radio and a special song that reminds you of your loved one happens to be playing. You go out to dinner with a friend and tell a story about your beloved Grandmother and then notice a song from her favorite musical is playing softly in the background of the restaurant, or perhaps you wake up in the morning with specific song lyrics playing in your mind. Lights flickering, the TV going on, static on the radio, a song that plays at just the right time. Electronic devices produce currents of energy that allow the spirit world to communicate with you, and these can all be signs from your loved ones that have passed. 


7. Visitation Dreams


When we dream, we are most connected to our subconscious mind and so our intuition and connection to the Spirit World all have more direct access to us without our conscious mind interfering. In visitation dreams, your loved ones in Spirit are actually visiting with you. Two of the common elements of these dreams are that they feel very real, and that your loved ones are not angry, sick or hurt. Instead, they are loving, whole and have usually come to let you know they are okay. I used to have these dreams of my Grandmother where I would hug her on the beach, feel the warmth of her skin and smell the oil she used to put on. I could see in detail the side of her face and feel her take my hand. Things I’d forgotten about suddenly were back like the shape of her arthritic curved hands in mine. I could feel them colder at the fingertips and warmer in the middle. I could see the ridges yellowed on her nails from having taken off the polish and laid in the sun. These images are perfectly clear to me even now. I can recall them easily and see it almost as if she were here. 



Going Forward 

A Mediumship reading can provide greater clarity around receiving signs.

Your passed loved ones want to communicate with you and let you know they are with you and witnessing your life. During a Mediumship reading, Spirit people will often give evidence and validation of the signs they have been sending or will send. 


“Your husband says there was a blue bird outside your window just this morning that made you think of him.”


“Your grandmother sends you cardinals.”


“Sometimes you smell smoke when your Dad is around you.”


“Your friend said he was there when you saw that Eagle. It was beautiful and made you think of him.”


“Your Mom loves drawing your attention to pennies with the year you were born.”


“When your son is near you, he says you smell sunshine on your face, It's like you can feel his warmth.”


This type of evidence in a reading helps to keep the connection going between my client and the Spirit World, and is a reminder of their undying love that is always present.
