I briefly mentioned in an earlier post about how your loved ones in spirit are communicating with you through signs and symbols. Many of my wonderful listeners and readers wrote me and asked me for examples of those signs and symbols.
Songs / Music
One way spirit tries to communicate with us is through music.
For example, if you’re driving in your car and thinking of your loved one and all of a sudden your song comes on, or a song that has some kind of significance starts playing – that’s a perfect example of your loved one saying, “Hey, I’m thinking about you too!” or “Hey, I’m here. You’re not alone.”
Pay attention not to just the song that’s playing, but also the words in the song that resonate with you. You may find yourself hearing a song you’ve heard a thousand times like it’s brand new. That’s a great indication that spirit played that song especially for you!
Familiar Scents / Fragrances
Another common sign from your loved ones is if you smell a familiar scent.
Let’s say you had a beloved uncle who always smoked a certain brand of cigars. One morning you’re wandering around your house and you get a strong waft of that familiar scent of cigars. If you’re not a smoker and nobody else in your home is a smoker, that is a wonderful sign that your uncle is there with you in Spirit!
You were probably thinking about something that you were hoping to have his guidance on and this is his way of letting you know that he’s around. Or maybe he’s giving you that scent to say, “Hey kiddo, I’m right here with you and love you lots.” Fragrances like perfumes, the scent of the loved one’s favorite flower and cigarette or cigar or pipe smoke are common ways that spirit will let you know they are around you.
Another very common sign from your loved ones in spirit is if you see animals that held particular meaning for your loved one while they were here on the physical earth. You can even ask your loved one to send you a specific animal as a sign – such as a bluejay, a robin, or butterflies.
It’s incredible how, lo and behold, you will see butterflies in the most unexpected places. Again, that’s just your loved one reminding you, “Hey, we’re around you. We love you. We’re never that far from you.” When you request certain animals it helps you know and feel that connection even more strongly. This is just one of many ways that Spirit loves to give you little bouts of love and support.
Those are three common signs that your deceased loved ones are still with you. Now you can more easily recognize when your spirit family is around you and trying to communicate with you in loving ways!
