When you experience the loss of a loved one, you may find yourself questioning the possibility of life after death. After all, there is no physical body to hold, see or touch, the voice is no longer heard and their scent has faded away, leaving you only the memories of their existence. But often we deny or dismiss the continuing signs of our loved ones and their contact with us through our own lack of acceptance and understanding or our religious beliefs.
When you come to understand that the spirit of the soul, the character of that spirit and the love that emanates from that spirit, it cannot be destroyed. The essence lives on and there is a perfect quote that says it so simply “you don’t have a soul, you are a soul, you have a body” by C.S. Lewis. Love for another does not cease to exist; it is as present as it ever was. The bond that you share with another through love is unbreakable. When a parent loses a child, it is the most difficult loss to experience because as a parent you expect your children to out-live you. Loving relationships remain after death, as a soul cannot be destroyed or die and therefore the love lives on. Our loved ones, who have passed on beyond this physical plane, can and do communicate with us, giving us the signs that they are near and still very dear to us.
Those in spirit can and do communicate with you telepathically. When you’re inspired to turn the radio on or maybe change the channel for no apparent reason, and there is a special song playing that was “your song” understand, that this wasn’t just coincidence but inspired telepathic guidance. Your loved one may also visit you in a dream and this too is classified as a visitation. You may find a feather, a coin, a flower, etc. There have been documented accounts of those in spirit materializing to their loved ones, and even leaving a familiar scent or sharing a gentle touch and these are indeed signs from above, signs from your loved ones.
Young children will often see those who are in spirit because they have not fully adapted to using only the physical senses. They retain their spiritual sensitivity until they become fully accustomed to relying only on their physical senses in this physical world. However, for each human being there is a spiritual being, that is operating that physical body.
For those of you who have grieved and doubted that your loved ones are still near to you, I would recommend the book Hello from Heaven by Bill Guggenheim and Judy Guggenheim.
As early as my young childhood I remember always being curious about the supernatural, paranormal, and mysticism in general. I seemed to be drawn with curiosity about the unseen, or what one would term as the occult.
