When it comes to spirits and the afterlife there are countless theories and beliefs about what, if anything, happens next. Yet despite all the differences, people generally fall into one of two groups; those who believe in a spiritual afterlife and those who do not. The idea that after death our soul passes on to another dimension, or life, or realm is entirely possible. No one truly knows for certain what actually happens when we cease to exist or where our spirit goes when it leaves our body. In fact, what comes next remains one of the biggest mysteries in all of life.

Despite all the uncertainty, many people from all over the world and all walks of life believe that they have been contacted by the spirit of a loved one after they had passed. You may be one of them. Most people report feeling a special type of presence near to them, one that is unlike any other they’ve ever experienced before.

The feeling they get from it is not a threatening or haunting one, rather it’s more mystical, positive, and reassuring. In the end, they attribute whatever they’re feeling to the spirit of a loved one who is close by.

Have you ever felt this?

These otherworldly interactions seem to randomly occur in our lives when loved ones send us messages, signs, and other subtle signals. They communicate with us indirectly and if you’re familiar with what to look for, and are open to the whole idea of spiritual connectivity, then you can pick up on these signs and know what each one means.

If at some point you’ve ever wondered if the spirit of a loved one was trying to get through to you, then the following information will help you figure that out. These are just several of the main ways to interpret the signs that a deceased loved one is close by and sending a message :

1) You Can Sense Their Presence:
This usually manifests as a sudden drop in temperature or a slight chill that is immediately noticeable. The air may become heavy or still and it means the spirit of a loved one is nearby. This is perhaps one of the most common experiences we’re able to have with spirits and while it may be off-putting for some, it need not be. The next time you feel it happen, embrace it.

2) Lights Flicker and Electronic Devices Act Up:
It’s commonly believed that the spirit world tries to make contact with us through electricity. While no one knows for sure, it’s thought that electricity charges them up and forces us to pay attention when electronics go haywire.

Lights will suddenly turn on and off, bulbs will burn out, computers and laptops will act strange, speaker volume may go up or down, radio and TV channels inexplicably change, your car won’t start. When these types of things occur out of the blue with seemingly no explanation, this means a loved one’s spirit is attempting to gain your attention and let you know they are present.

Have you ever felt these signs?

3) You Dream About Them:
When a loved one who has passed appears in your dreams it’s often believed that they are trying to tell you something important. These types of dreams contain messages or answers to questions you’ve been searching for. Don’t ignore or write them off as just a dream, it’s guidance, advice, and comfort coming from your loved one.

4) Familiar Scents:
When you suddenly smell a pleasant scent that is somehow familiar, it’s a sign that your loved one is nearby or present. Spirits use smells that are special to us because we immediately notice and pay attention to them.

5) The Sudden Appearance of Random Things:
Objects such as feathers or coins that you find in random spots may not be so random after all. The spirits of our loved ones will often stick pennies, nickels, quarters, and other loose change in unusual places knowing that we’ll stumble across them.

They do this as a way to help make us feel happy and to signal that they’re close by. So the next time you find a penny or a dime somewhere random, like on your front porch, thank your loved one for the thoughtful gift!

6) You Just Feel and Know They Are With You:
Sometimes there doesn’t need to be an overt sign that forces you to stop and think about a deceased loved one. Instead, you simply can sense and feel that some loving, otherworldly spirit is present and guiding you. This 6th sense or inkling is calming and peaceful.

It’s the type of feeling you get inside which you automatically attribute to the spirit of a loved one. For some people it even feels like they’re inside their head talking and sending them messages. When this occurs, and should it ever happen to you, it’s never scary or unsettling, rather it is reassuring and welcome.

There are other signs people have felt as well:

The Following Is My Personal Experience With The Loss of a Loved One:

I never was a person who believed that after someone dies, that it would be possible to feel their presence in any way. I thought that people who talked about these experiences had memories so strong and missed their loved one so much, that they imagined their presence in a way that felt so real. That is…until I lost my grandmother.

On many mornings after she died, (for years) I would reach for my coffee mug and would feel as if someone gave my arm a reassuring squeeze. The first times I would look around, thinking my husband was there, and was stunned to see he wasn’t.

Later on, I would smell her famous apple pie, at the same moments. Perhaps this was all in my head, but it happened on so many different occasions in the same way, that I actually began to believe she was looking over me in some protective way.

Grieving is a very long process, that is most acute in the first few years that you lose someone whom you love, but it truly does go on in different forms for the rest of one’s life. Whether you are someone who has some belief in the paranormal, or just don’t know. Let us know if you’ve felt any of these.

Have you ever felt this?


A few years later my dad died at the young age of 70, only 8 months after being diagnosed with the killer cancer of the pancreas, I was still pretty skeptical about people who professed to feel the presence of a loved one who had passed.  I wrote it off to their imagination tricking them, due to the pain of their feelings of loss.

Although my parents had moved to Chicago, and I remained in New York, we saw each other quite a bit; my dad and I were early risers, so we often spoke by phone as we drank our morning coffee.

There was so much that I missed about no longer being able to actually talk with him, especially our “coffee talk”.  After his death I was so emotionally spent, that I felt nothing for a while.

One morning after preparing my coffee, I sat down and began drinking as I stared at the bare trees of winter.  I felt a pat on my back, and looked around assuming my husband had entered the room…no one was there!

This kind of thing would happen as I would drink my morning coffee, for many years after my dad passed.  Part of me thought this was all in my head because I just missed him so much.

One day I smelled his after-shave, as I nervously was getting ready for an important interview…somehow I just knew that he had been watching over me and made his presence known in this way.  I broke down in tears of relief and appreciation.

This is really interesting.

It has been my experience, as well as that reported by many who have suffered the loss of someone very dear to them, that grief is not something you just get over.  It is more painful in the beginning (first few years), but actually continues throughout the course of your life.  Unless you have had the experience of a deceased love one making their presence known, you might not believe in this otherworldly experience.

Whether you are a believer in such paranormal events or not, I think you will find the video you are about to watch, thought-provoking.  It’s discussion of people’s reports of how they have experienced the presence of their loved ones who have passed, is varied and certainly is open for interpretation.  The intriguing ways people are “touched” by those who have died include:

1. Lucid Dreams – 2. Visions – 3. Feeling Their Touch or Presence – 4. A Sudden Change in Temperature – 5. Unexplainable and Repeated Electrical Phenomena – 6. Objects Disappearing and Reappearing Somewhere Else in Your Home – 7. Smelling Them.

After Going Over All These Signs Of a Loved One Trying To Make Contact Here Is An Absolutely Sad Yet Beautiful Story Of a Father and Son Who Were In a Fatal Car Accident But The Boy Somehow Survived:

Twenty two years ago Julie Kemp was driving with her husband Andy and 8 year old son Landon.  The family was headed home from church when an ambulance, not in emergency mode, slammed into them at an intersection. 

Andy died instantly while Julie, although unconscious, was stabilized by first responders. In all the chaos the rescuers didn’t even know that Landon was still in the crumpled up car because the damage was so severe that they couldn’t see him in the back seat.  

Fortunately, by a stroke of luck someone spotted one of his shoes laying on the road and they worked quickly to get him out.  When they finally freed Landon, he was not breathing, but medics managed to resuscitate him.

He was flown to the Carolinas Medical Center and on the way,  he had to be resuscitated again, and when he arrived at the hospital, they had to bring him back to life for a third time.  

His prognosis was grim, and doctors told his mother that if Landon did make it, he would likely not be able to walk or eat on his own and that he’d be like an 8 year old child for the rest of his life.  Two weeks later a miracle happened. Landon woke up, opened his eyes, and was able to communicate clearly. He was not brain damaged at all. Now Julie had to tell him the heartbreaking news that his father had died.

Wanting to be as gentle as possible, Julie asked her son if he knew where his father was.  Landon said he knew and that he saw his father in heaven. His mother was stunned when he went on to say that he also saw two family friends who had passed and two of her other children as well in heaven.  At first, she was confused by this then remembered that before she had him, she’d miscarried twice.

She had never told Landon about those losses because he was still too young to understand. She couldn’t explain any of what he told her and so she took it as proof that Landon had been to heaven.  Through all of the heartbreak and loss she’d experienced in the last couple of weeks, she found comfort in the thought and her faith in God was renewed.

Many people have claimed to have gone to heaven and then come back.  Many of these experiences involve near death accidents and tragedies, where people see loved ones who have passed and then are sent back to Earth because their time is not yet up. 

They could very well be seeing the afterlife and heaven, those who see it are convinced of that, and the evidence is compelling no matter what you believe.

Many kids and teens across the world will write letters to their future selves about what they want to do as they get older. Some talk about when they want to get married, how many kids they want, who their husband/wife should be.

While others write about what job they want to work, how far they want to take their education and what their dream career path should look like. After they are done writing the letter, they seal it up, write the date the letter should be opened and put it in a safe place where they will remember to look years down the line.

In today’s story this is exactly what Taylor Smith Johnson a teenager from Tennessee did. One day she woke up and decided to write who future self a letter that she would open on April 13, 2023.

Taylor decided age 22 would be the perfect time for her future self to read this letter as a reminder of what trajectory she wanted her life to head. She had big dreams, great ambition, wanted to travel all around the world, go to college and possibly graduate school while having God always in her heart.

Then without warning a few months after she wrote this letter, Taylor died from Pneumonia and would never be able to open the letter she had written months earlier. Her parents were completely crushed by the loss of their daughter, as losing a child is probably the worst thing that could ever happen to a parent.

As Taylor’s parents tried to cope with the loss of their daughter even going into her room was too difficult. The memories would flood back into their minds and they would immediately break down not being able to cope with the terrible loss.

Then months later, her mother finally had the strength to enter Taylor’s room and she stumbled upon the letter Taylor wrote to her future self. Her mom with tears in her eyes, opened the envelope and began reading the letter. She was stunned by all the things Taylor aspired to and wished her sweet little girl could just come back and do everything she dreamed of.

Although, her daughter was gone, it felt as if she sent this letter from heaven and it gave her mom some peace and closure that she desperately needed. Taylor could no longer be with her family in the physical form but she just knew her little angel would always be with them in spirit.

Her mother wanted Taylor’s memory to live on, so she posted the beautiful message on social media hoping that it would help all her family and friends cope with the untimely loss of her daughter…
