Grieving Process Newly Widowed Spiritual Awakening



After-Death-Communication (ADC) is becoming increasingly common.  Reported anecdotal awareness of these communication signs from the Other Side is growing at an exponential rate.  Are your deceased loved ones sending you signs that you might have missed, in the midst of the heavy grieving?

Signs of after-death-communication are sent the most frequently and strongly by the deceased 3 to 15 days after death.  Although it’s always possible to receive these signs of communication a couple of months following their death.  It all depends on the journey of the individual’s soul after death.  So don’t stress if you are not receiving any signs from them yet.  Just ask, and you shall receive, in time.

Sometimes we notice these signs, but we either over-analyze it, or rationalize it away.  Thinking “No, this can’t be,” or “It’s all in my head, I’m going crazy,” or you let other people convince you that you are crazy.

If you hadn’t experienced it yourself, you wouldn’t believe it were true.  I’m here to tell you: You’re not crazy, your deceased loved one IS trying to make contact with you.  They want you to know that everything is okay, that they are okay.

Typically, these signs will stand out in an unusual way.  You will know whether it’s your loved one reaching out.  Trust your intuitive center, trust your inner knowing, trust your gut feelings.

Note: my personal experiences with these signs are italicized after each explanation.  Feel free to skip to the next sign if you only want to read about the meaning of each individual sign.

Here are 11 ways they might have tried to send you messages of love and comfort, letting you know they are still here:



We all know the saying, “When feathers appear, angels are near.” This is one of the most common signs sent to us by a deceased loved one shortly after their “crossing over” into the Spirit realm.

White feathers are a sign that the angels are with you right now. It signifies comfort, peace, purity, and protection.  It’s also one of the most common colors of feathers sent to us by angels on behalf of our deceased loved one.  Of course, other colors are also possible.  If a feather floats onto your path out of the blue, then it’s most likely a sign of comfort from Spirit.

Black feathers are a sign of protection from negative energies, or a sign of spiritual initiation.

A few weeks after my fiance passed away, there were several instances where I was driving, and a random white feather would float across my windshield.  It would disappear as soon as I did a double-take.  Recently, I was taking a sip of water at the park after a good run, and a gray feather drifted down from the sky right in front of me.  I looked up for evidence of a bird flying by, but couldn’t see a single one.


Since your deceased loved one is now freed from all physical restrictions, they are able to manifest a part of their energy into tiny animals, and insects.  Of course, they would choose to borrow the body of those that are colorful (easy to spot), and those that can fly (easier to keep up with you).

Seeing butterflies means your loved one is now free of all pain and suffering.  Spotting dragonflies means the Universe is taking you on a spiritual journey, or you are about to experience a spiritual awakening.

One of the most shocking experiences occurred on the third night after his death. At around 10:30 PM, a bee landed onto the couch I was sleeping on and quietly stayed there the entire night watching me sleep.  (Yes, some of you might think it’s creepy, some might think it’s sweet. Trust me, I did too.)

I drifted in and out of sleep due to having heart palpitations the entire night.  Deep inside, I knew it was him.  And the palpitations was his way of trying to communicate with me intuitively.  At dawn, the bee disappeared. His family checked all windows and doors afterwards, everything was shut tight.  There was no way the bee could have gotten in, or out.  We have always had an inside joke about bees.

The 6 months following my fiance’s death, I had never seen as many butterflies as I had in my 20-something years of existence.  I saw yellow butterflies, black butterflies, monarch butterflies, yellow and black butterflies…everywhere!


Birds are another common sign of communication from your deceased loved one.  Like the above sign, they would choose to borrow the energy of small animals that can fly, or easy to spot to get your attention.

Doves are a sign of peace and comfort straight from Heaven.  Their “cooing” songs of mourning reflect the peace and comfort your deceased loved one wishes to send you.

I was walking to my car after buying some flowers to visit his niche when a dove coo-ed at me from atop a light the entire time.

“When a cardinal appears in your yard, it’s a visitor from heaven.”

Cardinals are a direct manifestation of your deceased loved one’s Spirit.

Before the death of my fiance, I had never seen a real cardinal before.  I’ve been seeing it from time to time ever since the first anniversary of his death.  Whenever I see it, I stop and thank him out loud for visiting me.



Seeing your favorite flowers, his/her favorite flowers, or other symbolic flowers bloom in your garden, or bloom out of season, are all signs of comfort from your deceased loved one.

Sunflowers are one of the most common flowers Spirit likes to send us.  Our deceased loved ones encourages us to cheer up, to live more joyfully by sending us sunflowers.

Roses are another popular flower Spirit likes to send us as they represent love. Crimson red means deep love. White represents peace and remembrance.

One evening, I was on my way up the flight of stairs to our apartment a few weeks after his death when a random sunflower appeared on the cement alley way, just a few steps from the stairs.  There was another time when I felt worse than usual while grieving, and I cried out loud that I missed him a lot.  The next day while driving, I saw a single sunflower bloom on an empty field of grass by the side of the freeway.  I drive by that field almost everyday and have never seen a sunflower there.


Seeing rainbows means your loved one is vowing that they would never leave you.  They will always be there for you during times of need, and times of celebration.  They will always look after you.

The day after his internment, I saw rainbows in the sky 3 times over the next several days.



Your deceased loved one might try to make their presence known through your sense of smell.  Did he or she smoke? If so, you might catch a whiff of tobacco, or cigarettes in your vicinity where there are none.  Did he or she have a favorite food?  You might smell a sweet aroma of cupcakes, or some BBQ wings, or their favorite perfume, out of nowhere.  This is one of the ways they are letting you know they are near.

Another common scent is the fragrance of fresh flowers.  This is a great sign that they have crossed over and they are doing well on the Other Side.

One morning at work a few weeks after his death, I walked by the table where he sat when he used to visit and caught a whiff of the aroma of fresh flowers.  We’ve never brought in any flowers, or flowery scented things.


Because your deceased loved one is now pure energy, they have the ability to manipulate electricity in any form.  For instance, they might flicker the light, blow out some light bulbs, or mess with the radio, or the TV.  These are all indications of their presence.

It’s perfectly okay, and normal to be afraid when you are receiving these signs, especially if you’ve never experienced anything like this before.  This was one of the signs that used to scare me the most.  If this sign scares you, just ask them to tone it down a bit, or to use another sign.

One evening shortly after his death, I was crying on the couch with the TV on some random channel.  I asked him whether he was still here.  Minutes later, the TV switched to his favorite channel on its own, and intermittent static would appear.  The TV was only a few months old, and we’ve never seen any static on it before.

The night right after his death, the light bulb in our room blew out.  The day of his internment, the light bulb in our closet blew out.  These were relatively new light bulbs that we’ve never had issues with.



You might be having a rough day and you suddenly hear your love song, your favorite song, or their favorite song on the radio.  They will try to speak to you by playing the song(s) with the exact lyrics they want you to hear.  It’s not just a mere coincidence.  This is a sweet reminder that they are still with you.

During those quiet car rides to his chemotherapy sessions, I would turn on a certain playlist and let it run.  There were several instances where I would visit a nearby coffee shop and those exact songs would play in the exact same order as it did on the playlist.


Another physical sign your deceased loved one would send you is in the form of number combinations.  For example, you would see any numbers that represent the dates of special occasions, like your birthday, his/her birthday, your anniversary, their date of death.  They would usually appear on license plates, or billboards, advertisement, or receipt papers, or transaction totals.  Number signs calls for an entire blog post of its own.

After his death, I told him to send me the number combination of the date of our anniversary.  Since then, I’ve seen that combination countless times.  Whenever it appears, I know that he’s here.


Another common occurrence of visitation, or communication from your deceased loved one is when they appear in your dreams.  Typically, these visitation dreams will leave you with an overall sense of love, warmth, joy, and peace.  Some have even reportedly seen their loved one vibrantly smiling, and wrapped in Divine light.

Dreams that leave you feeling frightened, sad, or unease are generally from your subconscious mind.  It’s still a good sign since it indicates you are processing your emotions and experiences on a subconscious level.  Even if you do see your deceased loved one in it, it’s most likely not a true visitation dream.

Don’t worry if the visitation dream occurred to a close friend, or relative instead of you.  Sometimes our loved ones can’t get through to us because we are so overwhelmed with grief.  Or it’s simply because your loved one is still trying to acclimate to the Other Side.  They might be in the process of learning how to appear in your dreams.  Just ask, and be patient.

The times that I’ve seen my fiance in my dreams were my subconscious trying to process the entire experience.  Though there were a few times when I felt loved and a sense of joy washed over me while I was fast asleep.  I knew that was him.  But I’ve never seen him “appear” in my dreams like others have.


We are all connected to each other on an energetic, soul level.   The only difference is your loved one is now without a physical body.  If you have never exercised your intuitive sensing muscles, it may be a little challenging to sense them.  However, with just a bit of practice, you will be able to sense their presence.

It is typically easier to sense your loved one shortly after their passing over because their energetic body is still dense.  The longer the time passes after their death, (let’s say a year, or a few years later) the more difficult it would be to sense them as they get lighter on the vibrational scale.  By then, would take more effort from both parties (you AND them) to meet each other half way in order to make contact.

When they are near, you might notice a sudden change in air pressure, or room temperature.  You might experience sudden chills even when the air conditioner isn’t running.  Or alternatively, you may feel a sudden warmth and love has blanketed over you.

You might experience a pull in your gut, in your solar plexus area.  You might also experience increased heart rates, and/or anxiety.  That’s because they are trying to equalize their vibrational frequency with yours in order to connect with you on an energetic level.

Some claim to feel a touch on their shoulder.  Some feel an energetic hug.  Energetic hug feels like getting goosebumps over your entire body.  It can also be described as slight tingling, or buzzing sensations on your skin.

I haven’t been able to sense my fiance lately as well as before.  Partly because it’s no longer necessary for him to visit as often.  And because he is probably lighter than a feather now.  It would take him to send me physical signs for me to recognize his presence.  And don’t be afraid to ask your loved ones for specific signs. They love to let us know that they are still watching over us.


***EDIT:  The day after I’ve published this post, I received more guidance and confirmation from Spirit.  Here I write about the sign I received and that I’ve missed on this post.

These are some of the most common signs that a deceased loved one is reaching out after “passing over.”  Our loved ones want to send us words of comfort to let us know that they are doing well.  They wish to remind us not to get too caught up in the mourning process that we forget to live our lives.

If you are ever afraid, just tell them to use an alternative sign.  And you can absolutely still talk to them, they will hear you!  If you haven’t received a sign yet, feel free to ask for one.  They will reach out as soon as they can.

Remember, some of these signs might not appear in its real, physical form. If you’ve asked to see butterflies, for instance, you might see them on TV, printed on an advertisement, or as wall art. Not necessarily in its 3D form. So keep an open mind, and be on the look out.

Sometimes though, they must move on in order to further their soul growth and their evolution.  So when you are ready, give them permission to move on.  They will come back to visit when they can.  One of the core lessons in life is learning how to let go.

Your connection to them will never die.  Love never dies.

12 Signs Deceased Loved One Is Near - The Jolly Widow


    1. Our loved ones will most likely send us signs that carry a special meaning for you, and they are usually out of the ordinary to catch your attention. Cardinals are only one of the most common signs from Spirit. Because our deceased loved ones are no longer limited to a human body, they can energetically borrow the body of any small animal, insect, or bird. Let go of the specifics and be open to any reoccurring signs. For instance, when my fiance first passed away, I saw butterflies in packs for at least a few months. Now, I would see a few butterflies here and there, but not to the scale that I did when he first passed. On the day of his Interment, as I was walking into a grocery store to purchase flowers, a dove perched on a street light near my car and coo-ed for several minutes. Dove are also another messenger of peace from Spirit. Hope this helps Julia!

  1. I always know when my deceased love ones are near. The three most powerful ones come from my father, maternal grandfather and male cousin that I rarely knew. That is the one I don’t understand and he comes only in dreams. I never understand the message. Maybe no one else on my fathers side of the family is atuned to this kind of thing. Maybe he wants me to give a message to someone. My father and I were very close. At first I could feel his presence, once at avery bad time of my life as I lay sleeping I felt someone touch me on my sholder. I turned fully awake and there he was. He was beaming with what seemed like sunlight on his face. He was gone in an instant and that is when I noticed the smell of the shaving cream he always used.

    1. Thank you very much Mary for sharing your experiences with your loved ones who have passed. Dreams speak the language of our subconscious mind – perhaps you have already understood the messages he tried to convey in your dreams on a deeper level, but your conscious mind has yet to be able to interpret it. And yes, our loved ones are the most present during our darkest times to send us love and encouragement – it’s beautiful that you were able to see your father in that way! Thank you again for sharing 🙂

  2. I recieved the mental health report on my son on Wed. Thurs morning going into work i saw a white feather in the car park, i could hear my son very clear as if he was there saying go on Mam you can do it. Thurs after work we went to a Lights of Love service at the cathedral and 100+ people had their lite candles in the dim cathedral. Friday i was trying to call hubby on the way home from work and the song came on my phone, it was one my son used to play and he downloaded it onto my phone for me, i couldn’t seem to get it to stop playing i just had to turn the sound down, but it do as it normally does and go onto the next song it just stopped.

  3. Almost immediately after my husband passed my daughter and I started getting signs from him.
    My husband collected coins . We would find dimes everywhere around the house and out of the house as well. In front of our house several times dimes in front of the gate . Parking lot of supermarket dimes in front of the car door ! It was wonderful to know he was still around.
    A few times the tv would just shut, or channels would change . One night I woke up crying , turned on the tv and an informercial about oldies was on . They were playing Chicago , Bobs favorite group.
    Believe it or not the song playing was Color My World ! He would sing that song all the time .
    His scent on blankets that were washed. Hearing him cracking jokes on a tv show that was on.
    Lastly I’ll never forget , it was about 2 weeks after his passing. I was changing the sheets and all of a sudden it sounded like a strong wind went by my ear and I heard his voice saying Saa , Saa . I turned but it became silent . He’s gone 9 yrs. and there aren’t signs anymore , but it did go on for quite a while. The signs helped me through the hardest of months .

    1. Awe, that is so heart-warming! Thank you for sharing your experiences Sarah. I’m glad these signs have helped you through this process, it certainly is comforting to know that they are there for us during times of struggle. Take care ❤️

  4. My husband of almost 25 years passed suddenly and tragically. I’ve heard him knock on my cars back window while driving down the road. I also feel him tugging/playing with my hair. Also, in my car, everytime a song comes on that he liked my dash lights go on and off. Like all of my info disappears and comes back on.

  5. I dream of my husband of 50 years almost nightly, but in my dreams I am so mad at him…even the next morning I wake up being upset with him…he passed 4 years ago.

    1. Dorothy my name is Dorothy Isabelle my husband of 52yrs is in my dreams nearly ever night. I just cannot believe his attitude. The story leaves me in Stunned disbelief. This is a stage of grief. Nine years has passed and I still cannot believe he left me. Anger is another stage of grief you are experiencing. It’s all normal and no time limit. We move in and out of the many stages of grief. Google it and have a read for more clarification. Kind Regards.

  6. I lost my boyfriend, my best friend, a year ago last Sunday. Unexpected death. I have received many small white feathers. One which I swear floated down from nowhere and was golden. Took a pic of it as it rested on my arm but the golden wasn’t in the picture. After a very difficult meeting, as I walked home, a small fluffy grey feather floated gently down in front of me. A perfect pink rose petal appeared among leaves, in November when roses aren’t blooming. No rose bush around either. I had a dream about 3 weeks after he passed where my mother was driving me to see him in another state. (She had passed 3 months earlier.) I could not see her face or hear her although I know she talked to me. I believe she was only partial as it wasn’t HER dream to communicate with me. It was his, my friend. And he let me know he was with his dad (who had lived in that other state) and my mom and other relatives who I could not see but knew were there. He was happy and perfect. But the greatest visit was 10 days before the one year anniversary, just a few weeks ago, he poked me in the hip in the early morning. My body felt it and it even rolled from velocity. A roll forward. I was laying on me left side when that happened. I lifted my head but nobody was there. I rolled over on my right side and I could smell him perfectly. I kept lifting my head to see what was on my bed, but nothing was there. 3 months earlier his sister felt a poke on her shoulder in the early morning. So, yes, I believe.

  7. Mom passed 9/22. Batteries in three clocks drained. My electric clock no numbers till I plugged it back in . Mom’s clock stopped since her passing. 2 smoke alarms chirping. She’s been gone 7 days.

    1. Deeply sorry about your loss Bonnie, yes it is most likely your mother trying to let you know she is still with you in Spirit. Thank you for sharing.

  8. I lost my boyfriend who I loved with all my being when I was 24. He was killed riding his motorcycle.

    I was bereft with grief. My whole life changed.

    A few day’s after he died I went to throw out some garbage and there on the dumpster were dozens of perfect red roses in a large box. They were untouched. I remember knowing they were from him, how I don’t know but definitely from him. I brought a bunch to his grave, I have some to an elderly neighbor, and some I kept in my house. He died 29 years ago and my love for him has never changed. I moved on, had a child, married, divorced but his picture to this day lives on my bookcase with some personal items of his tucked behind it. I don’t feel him as much anymore but every now and then a song I would play at his gravesite comes on the radio or I will see something and feel close for a few moments. The body dies but not the love. I grieve not what once was but what could have become. When it is my time I know he will be there to comfort and guide me; it’s just that I have to wait a little while longer. I stumbled on the blog … literally. Was not looking for it. So maybe he wanted me to share a little of our story.,

    1. So sorry to hear about your boyfriend, I’m sure you did not stumble on this blog on accident. You knew the roses were from him because we still do have an energetic bond to our loved ones, the love does not die, just like you said. Thank you for sharing your story Wendy, it is beautiful!

  9. Directly after my mother passed my sister saw diamonds at her feet I told her she was tired as we had sat with mom for 2 nights and had not slept for a second, after I had made this comment the sparkles came to my side of mom’s bed I could see what looked like a sparkly mini tornado swirling in an upward motion in the middle of the tornado was a very light grey mist it swirled around me for a good minute before leaving the dust in the tornado was like when you are in a theatre and you see shiny dust particles in the light which is what my sister called the diamonds I do believe mom had left us a sign that she is ok as I had asked her to prior to her death I have never believed in spirits before but this has changed how I feel and I am now looking for other signs that she is safe.

    1. What a beautiful experience, thank you for sharing Doreen! I’m sure your mother will reach out once she is settled on the other side. Take care.

  10. I would love to know if I am crazy or not. I am so open to feeling my deceased loved ones around me but, over the past month or so I’ve doing little tasks here and there ‘decluttering’ as well as getting Xmas decorations out.
    Over the past month:
    1. I found an old painting my paternal grandfather had painted in 1966 that I stumbled upon and had the urge to bring out and ‘clean up’,
    2. I then stumbled upon an old Xmas ornament from my paternal grandmother (I never hung on our tree) – that I felt compelled to hang this year,
    3. Then while cleaning my closet I found my maternal grandmother’s obituary card from her funeral and an old newspaper article about that I saved. Again a total fluke.

    This was all within about a 2-3 week time frame and totally by accident is this just coincidental or could it be a sign from them? Would love anyone’s thoughts.

    I never met my paternal grandfather, but, knew both my grandmothers very well.

    1. Thanks for sharing your experience Trish, perhaps they are urging you in Spirit to rediscover your roots, or your ancestral line. Just a thought. Take care.

  11. I have been having undeniable contact through smell,electricity and I agree with you it scared me to bits initially, however I welcome it now.The most recent contact from a particular loved one that has passed has been through magnets.I have to admit I feel alone in this. Is
    Their anyone else that has had this occurrence?If so could you please be so kind as to please reach out.I need to know what it is she is trying to stress to me!!

    1. Sometimes, all our loved ones want to communicate is that they are still, very much, alive in Spirit, and that they are watching over you. Thanks for sharing your experience Amber, take care.

  12. My husband took his life 9 months ago. He was quite ill with Lyme. He slept constantly, and had both physical and mental pain. I researched tirelessly to find answers as the doctors were of little help. A year before he died while sleeping mid day a bat flew in and bit his nose. We of course started rabies treatment. Interestingly the immunoglobulin given first in the series caused an almost complete reversal of symptoms lasting perhaps 2 days only. I then became convinced his problem was immune related and tried to get him into an immunologist for testing. Our insurance was slow to approve so an appointment took forever, he “left” before the date. Approximately one month afterwards I came home from shopping and noticed a dead bat on the floor. I assumed our cat brought it in. We’ve since always joked in the family that Chris was telling me “the bat/ immune problem” was spot on. He knew I needed that medical closure. I wonder?

  13. On the night of my deceased grandmother and mother’s birthday ( St Patrick’s Day ) my half sister and I went to her backyard to look at some plants we went back-and-forth in the same area and on our third time passing a table she saw a white balloon laying on the ground and she asked me where it came from I said I don’t know the party you had she reassured me she had had no parties and had sprayed down the yard earlier in the afternoon. As I bent down to pick up the lifeless balloon it lifted up on its own and went to my far left stopped started spinning growing and floating! We were both in disbelief as we watched in amazement. I knew right away that my mother and grandmother were there. I said they are here and they want me to know they are okay they’re at peace when I said that this balloon floated over to me and when I repeated that sentence it started bouncing up and down in front of me. For the next half hour this balloon was floating around my body and even went out and came back five times in a half circle . This balloon was clearly communicating with me it never went to my half-sister. How can one make sense of this there was no helium tank involved the balloon wasn’t even there and then it appeared with a white string on it. It’s now back to its flattened state I keep it on my nightstand and reflect on that evening often… I ask myself did that really happen and I called my half sister and ask her the same we both agree that really happened. What a blessing and a confirmation that our love ones are literally here with us in spirit!

  14. My sister died 2 weeks ago today. Yesterday my microwave fan came on high without me even touching it. Even when I touched the stop button, it wouldn’t go off. This morning I was hearing music in my home. It sounded like a music box. I picked up 2 music boxes I have and there was no sound. It sounded like it was coming from the floor. I had some things on the floor in bags and boxes and thought there might be another music box there but there wasn’t. I couldn’t identify a specific song and then it stopped. My Dad is elderly and made his home with her. I thought maybe she’s trying to say she’s worried about him. The last time I saw her she told me to leave and we were estranged at the time of her death. I found out about in death reading my hometown newspaper on line by reading the obituaries. She had been dead 2 days and my siblings and father never called me. I made it to the funeral no thanks to them.

  15. My beloved husband died in December. A week after his passing my burglar alarm went off when I was sitting in the house. It wasn’t even set! John had left me a list of numbers to call if anything went wrong (very organised and thoughtful). The man came out and couldn’t understand it, but he managed to stop the noise. At 6 pm it went off again so he came back and disconnected it completely. In addition to this, a lamp in the bedroom stopped working. Tried all the usual things and had to throw it out. Then both the light timers stopped working – in the bin with them too! I’m now convinced it was John’s energy. He would never have left me willingly and I think he’s still around.
    It’s 17 weeks now since his Death, and I’m grieving so much. Yesterday I was so weary and lay down on the sofa. Just as I was in between asleep and awake, I “saw” an image of John pretending to play a guitar by his seat. My eyes flew open and the image sort of whooshed into my heart area which felt full of aching grief and love. As I lay there I suddenly felt a tingle going through me from head to toe in a wave. I said out loud “I got that John” and burst into tears.
    I think about him all the time but I’ve never experienced anything like this before. I was half awake and asleep and he was pretending to be a rock star like he used to.
    I know it was him – I know he would want to let me know he was there. He left me a video to find after his death and in it he said he would try and send me signs if he could.
    I miss him so much but this did comfort me.

    1. Wow, thank you for sharing your beautiful story Linda and I’m glad this article helped. The signs you’ve described do sound like he was trying to communicate with you. I hope you can find peace, just know that you’re not alone on this journey.

  16. My lovely partner who passed away 1st may 2018 as Im (hearing impaired) and we enjoyed camping / red wine and she was full of life, but after six weeks of her passing I saw her spirit through a reflection in my bedroom window coz I have been in a shell and didnt want to be around in the public or going out at all.
    Since then I have found brown feathers in my bedroom floor and now have 13 feathers in total of white and brown. It was the third time I have seen white feather appear in front of me and including at my friend place at talking about feathers and life in general.
    I have been touched 6 times on back of my hair, also my ear at work and my finally I have been touched on my left shoulder on my birthday this year, so now 7 in total ) this year as I was looking after my sister 2 border collie. I did smell her flower scent at work that I assume it was her always loves roses and garden.
    One strange experience, it funny though that I heard something at 5am so I was sleeping and I realised as I got up that mobile phone has dropped on the carpet floor from the walk in drobe twice in 2 weeks and my tv was on while my remote was in the lounge room and my mum had her tv turn on the same week. My mum and myself think it was our loved one.

    1. Deeply sorry for your loss Tony. Thank you for sharing your beautiful experiences sir – that is truly amazing. I hope these encounters have helped you find more peace.

  17. Wow. Thank you for sharing 11 signs. I wrote previously what occurred in my home 2 weeks after my sister’s death. Since nothing like that had ever happened before, I sat down and told my sister I am not mad at her. I know her behavior was due to her illness. I told her I love and miss her and will look after our Dad for her who made his home with her. I think she needed to hear me say that. She was in a coma the last week of her life and didn’t communicate with anyone.

    1. Sounds like you have helped both yourself and your sister find closure. Thank you for sharing Diane, glad you’ve found the article helpful.

  18. I often see the digits of my deceased grandma’s date of birth. Sometimes I don’t see them for months, but sometimes it’s four times in one day. On different random things, not connected to each other.
    When I see the digits, I always say her name, thank her, and ask her to help me with stuff.
    But I never know what it means. I know she’s trying to show her presence, but I never know what to understand from it.
    Does anyone know the meaning that or maybe had the same experience?
    Thank you

  19. My son passed away 3/30/20 and approx week later I could feel his presence all over the house all around me. Also I think he use to communicate with phone calls. The phone use to ring once two time at different times whenever I was feeling bad or whenever I spoke about him. After I starting to notice the pattern 3 other close family members stated the same thing thing. My husband and sister both call the number on the caller id and it said family and friends. One morning I woke crying at 530 am the phone rang I smiled. My husband was skeptical he checked one morning and as soon as he placed phone down it ranged twice again like to confirm its me. One day I brought my sone cell phone in the house and that particular day my garage acted strange, my refrigerator, made alot of noises and the phone kept ringing off the hook and caller said cell phone. My tv also started to lines going throufh like it was going conk out. I just fell asleep and the next it dawned on me that I brought my son cell phone in house to charge so I went in the special room that I usually talk to him when the phone rings and told him that I would give his cell to his son that mom loves you!! Phone rang twice like usual and I haven’t felt my presence since then so I think he finally crossed over that day not sure.

  20. I found out 2 weeks ago a good friend of mine passed away back in November 2019. His name came to me in thought and decided to check on him and that is how I found out. I was devastated!! I haven’t recovered because it’s still fresh. His birthday just past in the 7th of May and this made it worse. After I found out, I found the pic I had of him, next day a cardinal landed next to me while I was sitting in my backyard, and two butterflies stood flying in front of my kitchen window for a good minute. I also had an experience where my sound went in and out while listening to music in my living room and I have brand new speakers. I wasn’t even scared but laughed knowing it was probably him. I also have 3 love songs that continually plays back to back on shuffle. Every time I turn it on it plays the same three songs. That is the only thing that is constant since I found out. I wanted to know if that’s letting me know he’s with me or if he’s speaking through those lyrics of the songs.

    1. Sorry to hear of your loss Cilia. It sounds like he is attempting to send you comfort through the cardinal, butterflies, and the songs. Hope you can find peace in knowing that we are never really gone, our deceased loved ones’ presence is only a thought away. ❤️

  21. My brave husband died last August after a 2 year battle with cancer. I looked after him till the end at home under hospice home care. They had given Rob a hospital bed which was downstairs in the lounge. That last night I slept next to him on a blow up mattress as I had been doing every night. All our life together sped through my mind, when we first met, our children being born, holidays, all our wonderful memories tog., as if I was dying too. The clock would tick all night long so I know it was working. That night was a very emotional night as I had had to call out the hospice twice to give Rob pain relief. Rob passed away peacefully in the morning. I looked at the clock and it was ten to seven. An hour later something made me look at the clock again and it had stopped. It still showed ten to seven , the time when Rob had passed away. Eight months later I still haven’t changed the time. When I am in the garden feeling sad I suddenly see a white feather float down towards me. One time I was looking out of my kitchen window and a large white cross like a kiss appeared in the sky. Another time at dawn, I had been awake for ages crying when a bright colourful dazzling light suddenly appeared on my wall. The reflection was coming from a small gap in my curtains. I got up and opened the curtains and the most beautiful sunrise was there just looking back at me. The next morning after Rob had passed I awoke to the words of a song repeating over and over in my head “You are more than a number in my little red book” I googled the song and it was released the same year as we got engaged. Often I feel I can hear Rob laughing. He had a great personality and was always joking. I am grieving so much for Rob as we met and married young, 42 year,s and I miss him so much. He hadn’t even retired so I feel that all our future plans have been snatched away. Our favourite holiday destination was Tenerife so I went over there with my son and daughter. On our first day we were walking to the beach on the same route that Rob and I always took when a beautiful pure black cat with bright green eyes appeared from nowhere. We stopped and it weaved in and out of our legs and rubbed its head up against us as if it was trying to kiss us. Then it just went. I looked back and it was nowhere to be seen. We never saw it again when we walked the same route . I look for signs and talk to Rob all the time. The evil cancer stopped Rob from eating and he just wasted away in front of my eyes. I hope he is in a far better place now. I know he would want me to carry on so I push myself to do so but my life will never be the same again.

    1. Thank you for sharing those beautiful signs June. Yes, losing our life partner can also represent losing the potential and possibility of a shared future life. The most loving thing you can do for yourself now is to focus on the grieving process. Once you are able to process through the pain and the loss, you will feel a sense of peace and hope for the future will naturally arise out of that space of calm. Take care.

  22. My husband passed suddenly passed away 8 months ago. After his death, my children gave me a beautiful silver pendant of a heart with his fingerprint on it. I wear it everyday. Since then I have received 4 hearts, each one in a different form from him. I have taken a picture of each one. The first one was on the the windshield of my car, the second one was a small patch of cement on the basement floor in the shape of a heart, the third one came as I was cooking, which I always did for him. As strange as it sounds i poured a bit of oil into the pan and looked away and when I looked back the oil had formed into the shape of a heart. I hadn’t worn the heart for a few weeks and yesterday I put it on again. I took and English muffin for lunch and the brown part on top was in the shape of a heart. The funny thing about these hearts is that each one is in the exact shape of the necklace bearing his fingerprint. I don’t search for these hearts, they just come to me in the strangest ways.

    1. That was lovely to read – thank you for sharing your experiences Janet. I’m glad you were able to find comfort in receiving these signs.

  23. My boyfriend passed when our son was only 2 month and not one day goes by that I dont think of him my life hasn’t been the same

    1. Hello Necole. My boyfriend just passed away December 1, 2019 in our bed. He died of liver failure. I watched him suffer for too long. I also do not have one day that I do not think of him. Sometimes not even for a few minutes. I am always looking at his pictures, smelling his aftershave that he wore, and I even sleep with his shirt on his side of the bed next to me. It hurts beyond belief to know that everything I wanted for us in the future will never happen and that I can never touch him or kiss his forehead again. My life has forever changed also. I do not have children and I can not even image what you must be going through. I hope you find peace and comfort in this very difficult time.

  24. Mom passed in March. I had been given Mom’s watch by the nurse who took care of Mom on the dementia wing in which she lived. About a month after her passing Mom’s watch disappeared. I looked for it, couldn’t find it, but wasn’t overly concerned because I had the thought that it would turn up some day if it was supposed to. The following October I reached a cathartic point in my grieving, I had to accept Mom’s death, she wasn’t coming back, it was real. I cried and cried then felt more peaceful, but a little without my compass. The next morning after laying out some clothes on my bed and taking a shower, I walked out of the bathroom toward those clothes. I had a thought not to wear those clothes, but to wear a quilted jacket shirt I had given Mom as she was often cold. I changed course, walked over to the closet and put on the shirt. It had pockets in it and as I slipped my hand into the pocket, I found Mom’s watch! To me she was saying, it’s time.

  25. My 38 year old son died two weeks ago today. A couple of days ago a Bluejay appeared on our deck. That had never happened before. I called my sons fiancée and told her.After the call ended, she sent me a picture of a Bluejay that had just landed on her deck. The following morning my husband was looking out the kitchen window and another one landed on the deck, looked right at him, bobbed it’s head for a while before it flew off. The following evening his fiancée was walking her dog and three Bluejays were encircling above her. Her dog wouldn’t come in.He was barking and wagging his tail, but there was nothing there. He was a nature lover and I’m convinced these were signs from him.

    1. That’s beautiful Gini – once we pass over, our Spirits are no longer conformed by space or time, so we’d be able to exist simultaneously at different locations at the same time, much like what you’ve just described. Thank you for sharing, my deepest condolences.

  26. My brother died nine months ago… before he passed when I sat by his beside ( he was unconscious) I would tell him of a word I wanted him to say if ever I had physic reading done and he came through so I’d know it was really him. Maybe 2 days later whilst I was upset upstairs my daughter (7) came in from playing outside chanting this word As part of the game they were playing. At the time I was sure it was him but since I’ve become sceptical.

    1. It’s a possibility, but only if the mark carries special meaning to you both, and if it didn’t cause you any pain or harm. I say that because loved ones typically manipulate other things in our reality to let us know they are still with us, and will not want to infringe upon our free will (including our physical and mental spaces). Hope this helps Tayla.

  27. Hi

    I read your article and I am new to this. My mum recently passed due to a rare rare blood cancer. She was a beautiful loving, gentle and caring soul. Mum had a fabulous personality too. A few days after she had passed a green cricket rested on her blinds in her bedroom. (I never left my mums side after she passed for 3 days we respected her wishes and kept her vessel there for 3 days to allow her energy to leave her body within her home.) Mum knew I had a thing about insects. Not liking them and at the time I saw it I was curious but scared. I called my Uncle and he carefully removed it. My initial thought was to get RAID and kill it but instead I called my Uncle. Before he came I said hello Mum. I will be ok. I did not know for sure in that moment but felt it was her saying she is ok. Is this silly to you?
    I have never in all my years seen a green light coloured cricket let alone in the room where my mums body laid. Prior I received messages in dreams all insects involving me and a close friend before my mum passed. My friend also had a dream with all of us and mum being much younger and crying with us holding our hands. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

    1. Hi Beth, thank you for sharing that beautiful experience. No, it is not at all silly. In fact, I had an emotional response and a wave of energy washed over me when I read your story. Our passed over loved ones, once no longer tied to a physical body, is pure energy and can communicate with us through our thoughts and feelings, and of course, work through small animals to send us signs. That cricket was most likely your mother, and you already intuitively knew that she was with you that morning. Much love ❤️

  28. Thanku so much for this articale. I lost my mumma on 29 July 2020. It was a sudden death. She was the biggest support for me. After her funeral when I came home I saw white feather. When I was taking her body to graveyard, I saw a butterfly, flying towards me. Than When I was crying n missing my mumma, suddenly light fluctuated. Just now I saw a rainbow suddenly on my phone…She was extremely concerned for me. I so happy that she is giving me signals that she is around.😭😭😭❤️❤️🙏

  29. My dear husband, David, died three weeks ago. Last night I was looking up something on a legal site and across the middle of the screen appeared images of sheet music of two hymns which were sung at his funeral, and another one I didn’t know with the author’s name ‘David’ and the surname not shown. I hope this was a sign from him as I miss him so much.

    1. Sorry for your loss Janet. Yes, that does sound like a sign from David. Our loved ones typically send us signs out of the blue, and they love to surprise us ❤️
