Signs From HeavenHow Do Your Deceased Loved Ones Reach Out?

After death, your deceased loved ones are usually very eager to let you know they are okay, and still a part of your life.

Signs from spirit are usually personally significant, and really can come in a number of ways which may be easy to overlook…

The key to noticing signs from your deceased loved ones is to pay attention.

Be on the lookout for meaningful occurrences and anything out of the ordinary, and be open to communication from beyond the physical. There are also some more commonly experienced signs from Heaven to be on the lookout for…

If you have experienced any of these, it’s highly likely you have indeed received a sign from Heaven.

Top 10 Signs From Deceased Loved Ones

1. Visitation Dreams.

Dreams are one of the most common ways in which your deceased loved ones in spirit will reach out to connect with you.

Visitation dreams from your loved ones in Heaven are much different than normal dreams. For starters they are incredibly vivid, and real! When you wake up from a true visitation dream you will know you were contacted by your loved one in Heaven.

In addition, the main focus of visitation dreams is communication… Your loved one will likely relay a message, and let you know that they are ok. They will appear healthy, and vibrant (regardless of their state when they died) and after sharing their love with you, and communicating a message, the dream will end.

2.    Strange Electrical Occurrences.

An underlying energy flows throughout all of existence. Your loved ones in Heaven, who are now pure energy, are able to easily tap into this energetic flow to get your attention. For this reason, one of the most common signs from spirit happens when they, from beyond the physical play with electricity.

There are a number of ways they can do this, like causing the lights to flicker, turning the TV, radio, or lights on or off. They can also cause appliances, phones, devices or kids toys to beep for no known reason, or turn on without being touched. They may even call you on the phone from an unknown number… And then when you answer there is only static, or nothing on the other end at all.

Why does this happen? It’s a sign that even after death your loved one lives on.

Most of the time electrical signs are just your loved ones wanting you to know they are with you… Pay attention. What show is on when the TV mysteriously turns on? What were you thinking about when the light flickered? Were you thinking about your loved one? Your thoughts can offer additional insight into the message from your loved one, or even offer confirmation that the flickering of your lights really is your loved one in heaven.

3.    Feeling Their Presence.

Do you feel like your loved one in Heaven is looking out for you? That they are still with you and watching over you from spirit?

Feeling the presence of your dead loved one is one of the top signs that they really are with you, and visiting you from beyond the physical.

How might you feel their presence? There are quite a few ways…. You may sense a shift in the air, feel like you’re being watched (in a non-creepy way) or you just get a strong feeling of their presence which lets you know that they are with you.

You may also feel your loved one lay down next to you at night, or you get the sense they’re sitting next to you, holding your hand, or gently rubbing your back, touching your cheek, or brushing your hair.

4.    Smelling their Signature Scent.

Did your loved one smoke, wear a certain fragrance, make the best chocolate chip cookies, or enjoy preparing you a certain type of food?

Scent is common sign from Heaven.

If your deceased father smoked, and you’re sitting in the couch watching a movie, and you smell smoke despite no one smoking anywhere in proximity, this is likely a sign from Heaven that your father is with you.

Or maybe you smell your deceased mothers perfume, or the scent of your grandmothers famous chocolate chip cookies when there is no physical evidence as to why this scent would be near. When this happens, you’re experiencing a sign from Heaven that your loved one is with you.

5.    Showing Up As an Insect or Animal.

Your loved one in Heaven is now pure energy… They are able to channel their energy into an insect or animal, for a brief period of time to bring you a sign that their spirit lives on.

They may appear to you in this way as a butterfly, dove, rabbit, dragonfly, or any other number of insects or animals… When this happens, the animal or insect will usually do something that is out of character that catches your attention. They may land on your hand, come into your home, or appear closely, right in front of you as if they are communicating.

This is a common type of communication from spirit. If something like this happens to you, trust that your loved one is with you, and letting you know that they are okay, and that you are not alone.

6.    Moving Objects or Placing Objects on Your Path.

Even from beyond the physical, your loved one is able to move objects to get your attention.

This sign from spirit may take a couple of forms. Either they move objects of yours, like flipping over a picture, moving a piece of clothing into an odd location, or causing something to fall as a way of getting your attention.

They may also move objects onto your path.

Dimes and pennies, crystals or stones, feathers, flowers and keys are common examples of the types of objects deceased loved ones may move onto your path.

You may receive objects other than these that are somehow significant to your loved one like seashells (if they loved the beach), paintbrushes (if they were an artist), or even screws and nails (if they were a builder).

When this happens, say hello, and know that your loved one is sending you a sign from spirit.

6.    They Communicate A Message…

While your loved one can’t audibly speak to you, because they are a spiritual and not a physical being now, they are able to communicate with you telepathically, and they very well may directly communicate a message to you.

Pay attention to the thoughts which just pop into your head when you’re doing something else as this is a common way in which you loved one in Heaven may reach out. Especially if it sounds like something your loved one would say, or brings you a message of love, encouragement, or answers a question in a voice which does not sound like your own.

You may also find yourself having a conversation in your mind with your deceased mother, grandmother, or friend. When you as them a question, and then receive a response, it’s highly likely that this is actually a message from them…

Another slight variation of this is when a certain song seems to start playing in your mind out of nowhere. Listen to the lyrics to tune into the message from spirit. The song may even play on the radio at just the right time.

Your loved ones can use other people to deliver their messages too. You may overhear a bit of someone’s conversation, or someone in your life may be inspired (from beyond the physical) with a message of guidance or reassurance that is actually a message from your loved one in spirit. You could even be thinking of your loved one right before noticing a bumper sticker on a car, which brings you a message.

9.    Synchronicity

Have you experienced an increased number of coincidences and synchronicities after your loved ones death? They very well may be pulling some strings from the realms of spirit to help things line up for you in your life.

Your loved ones in heaven can assist you in aligning with chance meetings, new opportunities, and with attracting new friends, teachers, and life partners.

A slight variation of this is synchronicity in the forms of signs… Are you thinking of your deceased aunt Emma while driving, and suddenly a huge sign for Emma’s Shoe Shop appears?

Or maybe your grandfather was always encouraging you to follow your dream and travel to Italy… And then after his death, you receive an offer you can’t resist for a discounted Italian vacation…

When something synchronistic happens in your life and you just get the feeling your loved one in Heaven was somehow involved, they likely were!

10. Visions

Seeing a full on vison of your deceased loved one is one of the least likely ways to receive a sign from them in spirit… But if it does happen, which it occasionally does for people, it will be a sign that you cannot dispute.

I think the main reason more people don’t see their dead loved ones as apparitions, is because your loved ones intention is to comfort you, and let you know they’re ok… Not to freak you out and scare you with a ghostly appearance.

There are other ways in which you can receive a vision from a loved one though, and it is very common to see them through a vivid memory, or as a vision in your mind’s eye. This type of mental vision of your loved one will almost like you’re imagining them… but will appear seemingly out of no where, and usually accompanying one of several of the signs from spirit listed above.

Orbs are another common way in which your loved ones may appear visually through photographs. Keep in mind taking a picture into direct sunlight, or in a dusty atmosphere can also cause orbs to appear… But in many cases of orbs captured (especially those which seem to be solid), this is a powerful sign from spirit.

Love Lives On…

While life in the physical does end for individuals, love and energy continues, so do not be surprised if your loved one in Heaven reaches out to let you know they are okay.

Signs from spirit bring the comfort of knowing we are not alone, and that the soul lives on…

Your loved ones in Heaven know you, and so the signs that they are with you will often be specific to your life experience. They may also reach out and attempt to connect with you in ways and at times that are different than you may expect.

If you feel like you’ve gotten a sign from your loved one, trust your gut feeling and take it as a validation that their soul and love lives on.

With love and light,

  1. My tia Anita died on Novemeber 11, 2015 from stage 4 lung cancer/liver failure and was only 58. The funeral was this Friday and the viewing of her body was on Thursday. Last night, I think I got a dream from her. THE DREAM: I was going to eat at this restaurant that she loved, then I went to a dance class (she loved the dance), then I went to this beautiful beach where their was only her 2 daughters, her granddaughter and grandson, my sister and me. I saw her on the beach and as I was walking to her I heard her say “is Sabina here?” (Sabina is my name) and I walked up to her and said “hi Tia” I then asked my cousin “is this Tia” and no one answered. I then told her that I love her so much and I wish she never got cancer and that I will miss her so much. She then said “I love you to i will never forget you Sabina” and once she finished her sentence I woke up crying in a blink of an eye. I think she was contacting me

  2. My dad died the day after fathers day 2010… Blood clot to the lungs after a previous back surgery.. fall or winter 2014 i had a very vivid dream about in standing in a field with someone i couldn’t see the other person it was like a shadow… but dad looked happy and was smiling then i woke up… but it was so real i couldn’t get it off my mind for weeks.. wondering what it meant… i consider myself dads favorite over my brother and sister.. i’ve never heard of them having dreams about him.. After reading this it makes my heart feels good that i did get to have that dream and see that he is in heaven and truly happy…

  3. So my mom passed away Oct 2009, ever since then my whole family fell apart and I haven’t been able to cope with her death even to today. Well this morning I put my work clothes in the dryer for 15 mins and I went back because I didn’t hear the dryer going and the dryer door was open and still had 8 mins left. I don’t know what that means but maybe shes trying to tell me something.

  4. I researched and found this site after an my brother just visited me from beyond. He was killed in 2004 in Iraq two weeks from coming home after serving two tours. Tonight, I came home a light I knew I had turned off was on. I suspected it was my brother. So in my head, I said if it is you, please show me another sign. When I walked back into that same room minutes later, all of the other lights I did have on were turned off, but the dimmer switches were still in the on position. I love and miss him and I am comforted to know he is with me.

  5. My father passed away in July, and it’s been difficult emotionally. We shared an apartment for 22 years. Just him and me.
    I’m writing about something that happened on my birthday last month.
    I was not a birthday person really,so I kept it quiet for the most part. So i kept the date quiet. My family knew my birthday, but no one else. But my dad always made sure we celebrated, and would always wake-up before I left for work to wish me a happy birthday. It was important to him to make sure he got that in before my day got going. Well this year obviously he was unable.
    I read somewhere online that people who have passed sometimes will communicate to a loved one through other people. Almost like a little whisper into a certain person’s ear to have them do something, wear something or say something that has a message within for the loved one.
    Well I was substitute teaching on my birthday. It was an eighth grade study hall, which can be tricky considering the age level. All of a sudden an older girl, a junior who I know, walked in the classroom from the hallway, smiled at me and said “happy birthday,” turned around and left the room. Well that set off the eighth graders with all kinds of happy birthdays Mr. Leitze and “How old are you now.” All the stuff I have avoided for years by keeping my birth date to myself and my family. I finally told them that she was just fooling around and it really wasn’t my birthday, and they bought it and let it go, eventually. For the rest of the day I wondered how this girl knew.
    At the end of the day, she walked by my door again and I stopped her and asked how she knew. She said “knw what?” She looked at me blankly and then her eyes widened and she said, ” Is it really your birthday? I was just … I just said that. I’m not sure why. She shrugged her shoulders, smiled and said “Well, happy birthday Mr.Leitze.”
    I’m thinking that it must have been pop. There’s no other explanation. I considered if there was a reason that he chose this particular student. Then I remembered my dad had no acquaintance with anyone in that school, but this girl (Mariah), he sort of did know. When my father was having a pacemaker put in earlier this year, I decided to tell Mariah. She then proceeded make him a get well card which I gave to my dad after he was home, and I explained who she was (She was going through many very serious family issues at the time which I told my dad about). He even wrote a thank you card back to Mariah for her kind gesture.
    It all seemed to make sense to me. And it have me something I needed. So thanks Pop for keeping up your tradition of telling me happy birthday on my birthday.

  6. I truly believe the departed are capable of sending signs! Love reading articles about it. My brother has sent me and my family signs. He was 21 when he passed away and sends owls to us.
    I’ve also had many extremely powerful dream visits with him that I’ve written about!

  7. I have seen quite of bit of signs recently my father passed away three yrs ago and I have been praying alot more lately and talking to my dad. I’ve seen a dove fly over me and a owl on my window when it was opened and one night I was thinking of him and asked him if he could let me know he was with me and all of a sudden my tablet turned on and then it shut off and two days ago I was outside having a cigarette and then I walked in the house and I seen a orb right in front of me it was round and all white with gold around it I did not think much about it I figured maybe it was caused by the sun so I walked away from it and went into my living room and sat down on my couch and there it was again right in front of me so I figured that my eyes were playing tricks on me so I closed my eyes and I still could see it right in front of me then I opened my eyes and the orb was right beside me at first I was stunned but realized that my father was right with me I only seen the orb for about a minute or two and then it disappears then tonight I walked into the kitchen and found a white feather on the floor. At first when I seen all the signs I did not think much about them, but the two big signs that got to me is the tablet turning on and off when I asked my father to show me he was with me and the second sign was the orb when it showed up afte I was thinking about him now I truly believe

  8. My only child passed away April 22, 2015. He was 54 years old. On his birthday July 8th I drove to Palm Springs to get a helium balloon to send up to heaven. When I got back home I went into my office to type a special note to attach to the balloon. As I was typing the message I noticed a little squirrel had jumped up on my window ledge and was watching me. A few minutes later the squirrel jumped down and was gone. I went outside to where my son and I use to sit and talk to let the balloon go. Just then a gust of wind came up and took the balloon across my roof. I went into the house and out the front door expecting to find the balloon in my rose garden or tree thinking it had popped. I was surprise to find the balloon was nowhere in sight. As I walked down my driveway I looked up at the roof where the balloon had gone across and there sitting up with his two little paws together was the little squirrel and he was watching me. This was six months ago, and now everyday the little squirrel comes to my window ledge and if I am in my office I see him. I now leave two nuts on the window ledge each evening before I retire and in the morning they are gone. I am not alone.

    Rich’s, Mom

  9. I lost my grandmother two weeks ago. My grandparent’s had a musical angel that played Amazing Grace. Growing up, I remember learning the song with them through the musical angel. After my grandma’s funeral, I inherited the angel. While sitting on the shelf, it randomly chimed a note and then stopped. I responded “Hi Grandma” jokingly and the angel chimed about 10 more notes… what a weird experience!

  10. My mother died suddenly two months ago when I was not with her. I was at the mortuary the next morning with a friend and during a break in the arrangements, my cell phone started playing a very annoying, perky song. I’d made a comment as we entered the mortuary about not liking the music playing on their system. My cell continued playing this song until I punched some random buttons and it stopped. I said I had no idea what that was and we continued talking. After the mortuary we went to the attorney’s office with her will. As we left that meeting, my phone went off again, playing another perky annoying song but this one was more specific. My friend said it sounded like church music. I said it sounded like mortuary music but this time I couldn’t turn it off. I started laughing and said, “It’s my Mom!” She loved to make me laugh and she would want to let me know she was OK. I’ve had this phone 2 years and it’s never played anything other than my standard ring tone when a call comes in. And nothing since. And two days ago I found a penny on the rug in my hallway, right in the middle of my path. I don’t carry change in my pockets and no one has been in my home for weeks. This morning I had a strong desire to research communications with the departed and I just read that pennies are a sign. Thank you Mom !!!

  11. We lost our Mom on July 13th! I visited her grave for the first time since her funeral in September! (5 hour drive). She is buried with our Dad, right next to her sister. There, within a foot of their grave sites I found 3 beautiful feathers from doves! I knew it was a sign that they are whole once more and brought the feathers home. I gave one to my sister, one to my cousin, and kept one. We all put them with our Mom’s pictures. Our Dad has been gone since 1962, having died at 47. I know they are watching over us each and every day!!

  12. My brother whom I’m very close to passed away about a week ago and I’m in so much pain because I miss him so much . He died suddenly in a car accident but I was lucky to have talked to him via text just hours before he died . I have found penny after penny on the ground not just pennies but new pennies . I’ve also found a dime at my work in a place that I only have access to . I really think my beloved brother is around me .

  13. i dreamt being in my late aunt house she was also with my father who passed away when i was nine they all seemed to laugh and happy then she asked me what i wanted then i ran away so she then threw my shoe to me saying you left this waht is the meaning of my dream

  14. Back in 2009 my mom was diagnosed with Lung Cancer she lived in New York. I at the same time was going through a horrid divorce with a dangerous sociopath. I was married over 20 years with 3 children. He while married to me married a young girl in Cuba and got engaged to a young girl in the Dominic Republic. He did this for 6 years before I found out and the only reason I found out was he left his computer on. I met him back in New York while I was with my mom. We live Florida. I could not be with my mom while she was sick because I was emotionally broken by everything going on. My mom passed away 6 months later. I flew to New York the night before she died in the hospital. We stayed with our father for a few days and I went back home. A year later we had her unveiling. I flew to New York with my daughter and I was still going through my divorce. I was upstairs in the house I grew up in and went into the bathroom through my parents bedroom there was also an entrance through the hallway. I looked over and saw 3 Angels in silver outlines on the wallpaper. I immediately started freaking out. I called my sister and my mom’s friend and our kids in the bathroom and to their surprise looks they saw the exact same thing 3 Angels. I really felt the same as everyone else that was definitely a sign from my mom. I went back home to Florida and my divorce was final and I moved into my sister’s house. He lied about all our assets and since he was self employed he lied on his pay too. I being a stay at home mom received no alimony. In my sister’s house she gave me the room down on the main level. It has a walk in closet and my own bathroom. One day as I was taking my shower I looked at the wall tile and saw my mom. It was her face the complete outline and it shows her smiling. It is still there in the exact same tile. I have shown it to a some family and friends and only a few people saw what I saw and still see. In fact one of my good friends without me saying who it was said OMG its your mom. I am hoping this is a good sign and she is watching over me. Since then my dad passed away a little over a year ago but I do not see any visions or signs of him yet.

  15. My sister’s bofriend passed away on 25th of August,we all were and still are in great grief.Since then many things happen like finding feathers in our homes(he liked very much all kind of birds and took pictures of them every time he got the chance).My sister once dreamed about him and when she woke up she found that the hour on her phone was changed to the time from my country…he was from Italy but he died in my country,Romania.
    Maybe out of our sight but never out of our hearts,we love you and we will always miss you!

  16. There are two number 6’s in the article, and no number 7 or 8. Is that a sign for me? Has anyone else noticed this, or is it just on MY page?

  17. I am, after years of dating a man and its like hes here with me and talking to me! Am i crazy??

  18. 2 of my husbands deceased before I reached the age of 30. my first husband was an agnostic and died of cancer.In his last week he said he wanted to stay with me but he didn´t know how but he said he would find a way.He was a man of science and lived his life in a consequent and consistent way towards nature and refused to take more energy or material than he needed in the earthly life so there would be enough left for the next generation. he loved the snow in wintertime,all the pollution of left over human consumption got burried underneath a pure white surface. we had an agreement, both being agnostics, that if there was life on the other side,he would let me know. 3 days after he passed away, my sealed door flew open and it was snowing only on 1 square meter. nobody had seen snow that night except me and 2 friends who were visiting me. 2 years later we had a christmas-party. the mother in law of my sister was present that evening. she strongly believes in the afterlife and every conversation i tried to have with her ended in staring at me in a creepy way so I gave up. next day my sister told me that she asked who the indian next to me was, she pefectly described my husband but never met him in real life. my second husband died in a motorcycle accident. he worked as a computer-programmer for a telephone company.3 days after he passed away i received a telephone call from his telephone. he was crying ,i couldn’t understand a word , i felt his lonelyness and pain because he left to soon without saying goodbye. i immediatly understood that dough it is not easy for us to stay behind, it’s not easy for them to give up everything they have known in this earthly life, they are more lonely than we are because they have lost everything and everyone they have ever known. several years later i survived acute tetanos,i survived a car crash as a pedestrial and everytime i was out of conscience he was there with me.personally i am still an agnostic, i don’t know if there is an afterlife and i don’t believe it matters. what matters is that we live our life here and now to the fulliest of our capacity so that we don’t regret things we didn’t do before we my case i almost got insane by trying to understand what was happening. keys got switched,lights flikkered everywhere i was, electricity shut down in busses where i was, if i became angry people got attacked by objects shooting throug the air unable to explain by gravity, my music-boxes answered questions i asked to my lost husband without being inserted in the electrical contact,radio’s started playing without being plugged in… i my case i had no choice, i stopped wandering what it is, i will see it when my time comes,i live my live to the fulliest

  19. I do Dream about my Loved Ones and wonder if they are watching over me.

  20. I just woke up from what I KNOW was a REAL DREAM.A very pleasant visit from my wife.She didn’t say a word,just a smile and I have never had felt that much love,I was at peace.If Heaven is like that I’ll leave here tomorrow to be with her :)
    I really miss her it has been nine months since she passed/crossed over.She knows I still and will always love her,I’m thankful she has reached out to help ease my pain/grief to let me she is OK.

  21. I had many of the signs shortly after my husband died…

  22. About a week after my dad died, I had a dream he sat down in the same place on my couch that he always sat, and asked me what happened to him, I explained everything that happened and why he died, he said thank you and the dream was over. The next day I had an experience, he was standing with me and hugging me, he told me he appreciated my honesty and that he was supposed to go into a light, which I could see, he said he didn’t want to leave my brother and I. I told him to go because that was the safe place for him, and that nothing would change, he would still be here with us. He told me he loved me, I told him I loved him and he walked into the light…Immediately after he walked into the light I began seeing the faces of other loved ones that had already passed, I saw my Great Grandfather, my Grandmother and lots of other people that I love and miss very much, some of them in life like color, some were darkened silhouettes but I still knew who they were. It was the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me and I KNOW I was in another place and I was with my Daddy. Now all I have to do is sit still for a few minutes and concentrate and I can feel him hugging me, I can feel his arms around me and it makes me feel safe, just like when he was alive.

  23. The love of my life went into liver failure in 2010. We were on our way to Mount Siani in NYC and the night before our travel I had a dream of the closest person I had every felt in my life, My grandpa who had passed away in in 1976. In the dream his back was to me but sitting in front of him was my baby sister who had passed when I was eight. She was smiling at me and appeared to be eight years old. then my grandpa spoke to me without words letting me know that the transplant would take place but there was sadness still to come and then all of a sudden I saw my mom who is alive walking from her dinning room into her bedroom. She was covered in a heavy brown leather and not form fitting more like a tent. the dream ended and I was to find out the next day my mom had been robbed in her home while she was there asleep. (my mom is the lightest sleeper I know). My Johnny did recieve his transplant but heartbreakingly passed away several months later. At first I thought that that was the sadness still to come but within six months I became so very ill and still am very sick many days but because of that dream my faith has not left me and I can see that had I not had that dream I would not have faith and most wonderful I know my Johnny is finally at peace. But there is more ,about ten years before Johnny’s death he spent a chunk of money we really didn’t have at the time on these huge wind chimes. I said to him “are you out of your mind, why would you buy this when we live on the 19th floor of a apartment building” and his response was” you said someday we would have our own home.” At the time it was just a pipe dream in my mind but eight years later it was to hapen and the chimes went up outside on the second flor of our home . When my Johnny died I would hear the chimes all the time. Everytime I sobbed which was daily and often the chimes would ring. Everytime I stepped outside the chime would ring. It was strange that the wind was seldom blowing when this happened. I miss him still so much but the sobbing is not a everyday occurance now however often while thinking of my love the chimes will play the beautiful song of love.

  24. My dad passed 2 & 1/2 years ago and I received a Skype request from his last night.. I have a screenshot but can’t attach it..I’m in a rough part of life right now and needed him the most just then.

  25. I have truly found comfort in reading some the stories here, thank you. My mom, my only and very best friend passed away on Aug. 25th, she lost a horrible fight towards cancer in a matter of one month, I neede to know my mommy was finally resting in peace, pain free. I kept asking God if she was ok, I kept asking my mommy if she was ok, soon after she passed I had a very vivid dream, she was cooking in her kitchen, something she loved to do, she was wearing a very bright teal shirt, I saw her and thought to myself, “But mom your not here anymore” my mom then looked at me, smiled and hugged me! I felt her warmth, it felt so good to hold my mom again. Then I woke up, I just wanted my mom to hold me, and she did. I’ve felt so at peace now, I miss my mom like crazy, but I know now shes not suffering anymore and shes good in heaven!

  26. My father passed away last week and when we got back to my parents house outside the window was a Dove, the dove kept going on window with a branch and just staring at us. This dove has been back every day since he has passed when my mom is alone drinking her coffee. The Dove built a nest on the tree right outside her house to watch over her. Before my father passed my mom said she hadn’t seen birds in months.

  27. My aunt died on the Second of August. Me and her were really close. She was my best friend. But I was at her mothers house one day. And there was a bush out on the front lawn. All of the flowers were dead, except for one flower. And that one flower happened to have been my Aunts favorite color….. Purple…. Then Tonight, I was sleep, and woke up. And started to think about her and started crying. I live with her and her husband by the way. But I woke up , to hear my uncle , on the phone with his son. (My aunts son) and he was crying because of her too. It just seemed weird that I was woken up out of my sleep, and it ended up that me and my cousin were crying over her at the same time. From different houses….. And when she passed. Weeks later. I decided to clean her room, donate her belongings. And sweep and mop. There’s no way that her scent could have been still lingering. I cleaned the whole room. It smelled fresh. And when I came back. It smelled just like her …..

  28. Today my daughter started primary school – emotional as it’s been us all the time. I lost my b/friend nearly 3 years ago and her kids went to primary & high school. The whole situation sad. However, everywhere I go there’s feathers, I’ve picked up a lot to the point I could make a quilt and 4 pillows. Today as usual the feathers I see walking the dog and out of no-where a big white butterfly. I’ve saw previous butterflies too – brown & red. The first week she past she came to me in my dream telling me she’s ok etc,and subsequently randomly, she’s appeared in the car with me and her sister. She’s dropped memories into my head so I will do act on a hunch and later I find out why. I made a video of our memories with a specific song and that night in bed, song comes on my phone. It feels good x

  29. My daughter, Taryn, a coastal biologist, passed away in April from a brain aneurysm at the age of 26. Last week, to remember her birthday, her dad and I went to the beach where she had lived and worked and loved so dearly. As we walked along the beach, I noticed my husband seemed to be searching for something in the sand. Taryn always loved finding treasures on the beach, but it was always a special joy for her when she would find a sharks tooth. I suspected that was what my husband was looking for, so I began to chat with Taryn in my mind to help “Daddy” find a sharks tooth (his eyes are bad and he did not have his glasses.). I noticed him suddenly stooping and sifting through the sand. He stood up and excitedly called me over to him. I said, “you found a sharks tooth, didn’t you?” He had indeed, and told me that he had also been asking for Taryn’s help when he was suddenly inspired to dig through the sand and there it was—a beautiful, perfect specimen. We both felt her spirit so strongly in that moment that all we could do was hold each other and cry with joy.

    That evening, we had dinner at her favorite beach grill and planned to take a sunset stroll following dinner. During dinner, I had another “mind chat” with Taryn and asked her to bless us with one more sign of her presence that evening. We began our walk in the beach and spotted in a tidal pool a beautiful Royal Starfish. It was a spectacular blue and orange starfish, larger than my husband’s hand. We admired it for a short time and tossed it back into the sea, as we knew she would want us to do. We know this was a gift from Taryn, because her dad is an avid Florida Gators fan (colors blue and orange), and Taryn and her dad always had fun ribbing each other about the team. We have asked numerous locals if they had ever seen one of these beautiful starfish, and thus far, no one has.

  30. These posts are interesting; is there anything biblical to support these signs are from the departed.

  31. My Mom passed Tuesday night. Shortly after my son, niece, nephew and myself were standing around her bed. We all heard a dove. My nephew asked if it came from outside and my son replied “No it was right here” It was well after 11 pm. Please I need to know what this meant.

  32. Yesterday was the best “gift”. I messaged a female on FB in reference to exercise and how we should motivate each other. She had asked me if I was okay, and I didn’t quite know how to answer that random question, or why she asked. Kelly is an acquaintance, that I have known for over 20 years. Kelly happens to be a friend of a guy I dated 30 years ago (who passed away 20 years ago from cancer). She asked if she could call me, and after 10 min on the phone, we started to talk about Darryl. I told her that I had never visited his gravesite and always wanted to, she said lets do it right now. I told her I needed to put the lawnmower away and I needed to change and I would drive to her house afterwards. I love dragonflys, and as I went outside a dragonfly hovered near me. When I finally met up with Kelly, we drove 20 min away to the cemetery that he was buried ( neither one of us had been to his grave site in the past ). We placed a flower on the wall, she asked me if I was okay and I said yes that I felt a sense of peace. I then proceeded to tell her that I often wondered if he came to me in a song, there was a song that he liked to play on his guitar and sing that was released in 1970 ( when I was 2 years old ) so it was very rare to hear the song play on the radio. Kelly and I decided to have dinner at a restaurant and we chatting about random things and I mentioned to that I was never sure about our feelings for each other since I was 17 and he was 21. Kelly said ” I really think he loved you”, and at that moment the song came on the radio in the restaurant, and I said ” Omg, this is the song, can you hear it”. I then started to cry and had gotten goosebumps. It was the first time that I really felt that he was looking over me. I had gotten several signs, and the fact that Kelly and I have only seen each other about three times in the past 15 years, shows that we were meant to take this trip with each other.

  33. I keep hearing my dad’s favourite song through my computer. It seems to happen when I have been having a hard time. The song is no-where to be found on my computer. I also see his favourite bird the Magpie almost everyone day banging into my window. And the photo I have of him as a screen saver will often freeze on my phone. I am so lucky.

  34. Three times I have felt and sensed the presence of a loved one. The first being when I was nine and we returned from my Grandfathers funeral and walked into our house, I said to my mother I could smell his pipe tobacco, she said she could too it was so strong but he hadn’t been in the house for ages. The second was at my fathers funeral, I was standing behind the hearse with his coffin when I felt the urge to turn around and when I did my father was there but when I asked him what he was doing there it turned out it was his friend….but the face and body I saw before that was my father no question. The third was my mother in law….I was sitting outside and for three days before her funeral a white dove would sit on the neighbours roof. When I told her she said the dove had been coming for a week, when she passed the day of her funeral was the last time I saw it, but I quite often find white feathers which I keep.

  35. My very best friends passed away 3 years ago & a few days after I was standing in the kitchen talking to my husband about her when our rangehood switched on…we both looked at each other & knew it was her…this has never happened again so there was no fault in rangehood

  36. My dad died last year in Feb. Mum felt him holding her hand one night. Enough to mention it. All three of my children have seen him as in a vision. Two days after the funeral he appeared to my son telling him to get up off the ground at a training run if he wanted to make his goal. Son sprung up and completed his run. Few weeks later made his first NRL game. Dad always had wanted to go back to his marae to be buried with his father down other end of island. Few weeks after death he spoke to me about these wishes. He told me through a lady I didn’t know about an item my mum had that was to be taken to cemetery. The item was a part of him. Unbeknown to me mum had cut his hair and popped it in an envelop. None of us had been back for 30 yrs to this marae. There were other things I had to take also. It was like he was with me in organising everything. Meant to be.

  37. My youngest daughter died 5 years ago at age 3 and when I was upset or down I would smell her scent. I always felt this was a way she was saying she was still around and not to be so unhappy. Now I am in a better state of mind and do now smell her often. But I know she is still here.

  38. My beloved Aunt passed away in September 2014. My Mother, her only sister was diagnosed with the early on set of alzheimer’s as well as Uteran Cancer. My Mother underwent her first surgery in November 2014 shortly after my Aunt passed. The day of her surgery I saw a rainbow while driving home from the hospital. Both my Aunt and and My Mother love tulips. It was associated with their maiden name. Frequently I will receive what I believe to be signs from my Aunt through Tulips. My Mother’s cancer has come back. Today was her first radiation treatment. While walking into the room to commence her radiation on the wall was a huge picture of a field of beautiful yellow roses. It reminded me I am not alone and I believe she watches over my Mother.

  39. My Mom, my best friend, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in January of this year. She and I talked every single day, did *everything* together, and were very close. The week before she died, we had spent several days together– just having fun, doing things that we both enjoyed, and I am so thankful for those times… Her passing came as such a shock to our family and it was so hard to let her go. One night, a few days after her death, I was having a hard time finding sleep, so I prayed that God would send me some sign that my Mom was okay, something that would give me peace. During that night, I had a very vivid dream. In that dream, my phone had rang and I answered it to hear my Mom’s voice. We talked about things, just as we always did, and then, in my dream, I remembered in anguish and said to her, “But, Mom, you’re not here anymore”. Her response was, “No, I’m not, but I’m okay, I’m happy! And I am always with you!” Her voice was filled with joy. She told me to not worry, that everything was going to be fine. I do believe that my Mom was reaching across the barrier to comfort me and give me peace. I’ve dreamed of her many times since then– just short little snippets of dreams— the two of us having fun together, doing the things that we always enjoyed doing. I believe that Mom is continuing to give me courage and peace, reminding me that she is happy.

  40. My mother passed in December 2013. I was away when she was admitted to hospital, we flew back and when we entered the room my Mum who had not spoken for two years, came out of her morphine induced state and sat upright grabbed me and said ever so clearly “I love you” and then proceeded to fling her head around in pain. We sang “You are my Sunshine” which immediately settled her (I would sing this to her everyday after her stroke). My Mum passed 3 days later and as soon as I walked in the room and held her, gave her a kiss and said everything is OK Mum, go with love she opened her eyes and looked at me for the last time.

    The night after Mum had been buried she came to me and called my name as I was walking back from the bathroom, then the next morning the same thing, only this time both my husband and girlfriend heard her call me. The following day after having dropped our daughter at the airport I said to my husband “you have to take me to Eastgardens” where I would take my mother shopping. This was at 4:30 on a Sunday afternoon, I was not feeling the best and I mentioned to my husband through tears that “Mum has died and I don’t know whether she truly loved me or not”. Then we proceeded down the escalator to Telstra to have my phone adjusted and there at the end of the escalator was a sign “You are my Sunshine” which is what I would sing to my mother and I sang it at her funeral, I cried when I saw this and walked around the corner and there in front of me was the entire song on a board. The next day I had to go back to the centre and when I went past the same shop here was another sign staring straight at me saying “You are my Sunshine my only Sunshine”. That day my husband and I went to arrange for Mum’s headstone to be done. I had asked the lady to hold off as we were moving overseas and I was thinking of having Mum and Dad’s headstone changed where there was no gold writing but just etching as I would not be there to look after it. I had written out what I had wished to be put on the headstone and the lady held this until further notice from me. A few months later my husband and I were in Sydney and we visited the grave and to my amazement the headstone had been done. I contacted the person at the cemetry and she informed me that she still had the paperwork as she had not heard from me. She does not know until this day how this happened as she was still holding the paperwork. As i said to my husband “this is Mum letting me know to leave it as it is”, as both Mum and I had searched for a long time to find the appropriate look and verse for my father when he passed in 1997. I am constantly receiving signs from my Mum, even when we moved into our place here in Phuket. The owner of the villas has a boat and he had invited us out on the boat and I asked him if he had a name for the boat and he said yes “Maharani” I was so floored as this was one of my mother’s names as her mother and father had both been born in India. Again confirmation that I am on the right path and living my truth. I feel incredibly close to my mother in spirit and we communicate through meditation and I am very aware of signs from her.
    I know that we are all one and connected throughout all time and space, there is no beginning or end. Our inherent truth is love which is our higher consciousness and this has been my gift from my mother which I am truly blessed and grateful for as my life has transformed in the most incredible way.

    I love you Mum and thank you.

    Thank you for this moment in time to share this.

    With love

  41. Deborah Smith, Wow, what an amazing experience. I’ve felt a lot of things since my husband died but nothing like that. I’d sure welcome it!

  42. The day after I lost my husband in 2002 I started getting signs from him and now that our son has joined him also I get many messages and signs from both of them and I’m so grateful to know they are together and they are sending love to us.

  43. My son Ethan died from complications of Leukemia and a bone marrow transplant. Shortly after his death in 2007 at age 8), my wife was sleeping on the couch and saw him cover her with a blanket, he looked normal and healthy. I got drunk one afternoon and was acting a fool, so my wife let me sleep on the couch. Ethan’s picture (him dressed as an angel at age 2) came flying off the fireplace mantle at 2am while I was passed out and smashed a glass angel that I bought my wife. The frame was light and leaning backward, so no way this was an accident. The next morning his picture was lying face up on the floor with glass all around the floor and my wife said “Well! I guess he was mad at you”. I noticed may times when I am home on my off day by myself the tv or sound system cuts on by itself, it happened again about an hour ago. Twice the water was running in my bathroom sink downstairs when my wife was in the shower, I was upstairs the whole time,so no way this could happen. His color was orange and black and I cant tell you how many beautiful large orange and black butterflies we have seen. Once before a trip my wife and I kept noticing our left shoelaces only were untied several times before leaving on the trip. The lights flickered in the church the night a service was dedicated to his name. Many dreams, some are loving and some are me trying to find him, like he was abducted. Ethan suffered a long hard fought battle with JMML Leukemia, almost half his life. He was full of life, until he left this world. We are Christian, but some of our Christian friends believe that he is with God and these signs are not my son, but I thought all things are possible through Christ. We are not crazy and this is not wishful thinking, I believe Ethan is with us, but also with the Lord. Thanks for letting me share my story.

  44. My father died a year ago. I had two dreams of him, one shortly after he died where he was holding out his arms and I could not believe it was him. He said, “It’s me” and I ran to him and he hugged me. Another dream he was sitting at a picnic table with his back to me. He slowly turned around and was not sad at all. In fact, he was smiling and looked happy.

  45. my mother visits me in bed a lot. she waits until i am almost asleep then i usually feel chills strong in my thighs. she feels like a kitten on my covers and i often feel her thump against my back like she is napping with me. i work the graveyard shift so these things happen in the morning. yes a picture has been flipped and feathers, change jiggling in my car. she passed 3 years ago and after her death the cell phone ringing, my dog getting my attention and starring at me then winking each eye at me. many others too but i so love her visits and sometimes i feel like there is more than one person there.

  46. I have been finding Dimes along my path for approximately 1 year now. They show up in a lot of strange places, but always catch my attention. I thank them for their precious gift and save them. I have about $5 in dimes saved. Not sure what I’m going to do with them all but I’ll be keeping them forever.

  47. I am curious to know how you would be able to tell whether it is an angel or someone that has passed. Growing up when some dangerous was adverted, my mother used to say “you must have a guardian angel” watching over you. I used to think it would be a person like my grandmother. Also curious if angels warn you or help you when something bad is going to happen.

  48. When I lost someone close to me I was recommended a book that really reminded me of this awesome post. I would like to recommend it to you as well. “Love Never Dies: How to Reconnect and Make Peace with the Deceased” by Dr. Jamie Turndorf ( I was amazed at how deeply this book affected me and how much it helped me through the grieving process. I love the idea of my loved ones reaching out to me through spiritual means, I often see “signs” that they are with me. Dr. Turndorf explains these phenomenons and uses examples from her own loss to show us the deeper meaning behind these occurrences. Her husband passed away and came back to her many times in ways that she and her family and friends couldn’t deny! Such a nicely written and hopeful book. I highly recommend it to you and your readers!

  49. Melanie, Hello,
    I found your page about a year ago and find it comforting.
    Above you made mention that it was seldom that one would see a deceased loved one as a ‘full on vision’ , but that it can happen.
    My problem is : I have a tape that my husband & I taped with his voice on it and two of our grandchildren, for the future. I am 77 and My Dear Husband passed 13 years ago. MY Children have had a Hard time coping with the loss of their Dad -still…I Know how they would React if they came across this tape. Sunday, 29th,in my mind, thinking , & going to bed thinking & fretting–during the night I woke up & there was My Husband standing there by my bed, Looking so healthy and beautiful ,I can even tell you how he was dressed.. (My Dog sleeps in bed too..& I looked at him-he was staring where I was—when I looked back at Al he disappeared—-…. I felt so happy at seeing him……..
    ..last year I had a butterfly that wouldn’t go away…feathers…. BUT nothing in all I BEFORE I came on your site and became aware of
    how to process things .
    I still have the problem of the tape. Maybe Al was telling me to destroy it , so as not to hurt the children…
    I had been wondering why I had no sign and this was a huge one and so Beautiful.. The Angels were working over time….
    You know , its funny too, because Feenie ( puppy) had been staring at me most of the day on Sunday and whining…..
    Thank You for your wonderful site…& Blessings to all who read and express their love.

  50. I lost my Valentine to cancer in 2008,In my last home after he passed I started to notice light flicking on & off, fans turning on by themselves, my children laughed, my little granddaughter said is that really grandpa, I said yes & then when it happened we both said grandpa is still with us in spirit. Since then I moved & it took a year before he’s contacted me again, in my heart I know he’s been with me all along, I walk in the park or ride in my car alone& speak with him, I know he’s listening also when I first moved in their was a salamander perched at my window looking in every morning same spot to greet me a hello, people think did you lose your mind but I know he’s with me & so is the God, thanks for sharing.

  51. We are finding dimes from my husband Don My children also are finding them??

  52. Our 14 year old son died in February and the following Christmas I was working in the kitchen doing my usual pre-Christmas cooking and baking and looked up and there was a beautiful butterfly flying around my kitchen. We live in Illinois so butterflies are not common in December. I just knew it was him. My sister has her lights dim from time to time and thinks it’s my father dropping in to say hello. So many of your signs I’ve received. Thanks for sharing!

  53. The Bluejay Bird

    In October sometime. I was looking at the picture on the wall unite of mom and dad. I kissed my two fingers and touched dads face on the picture, and i smiled.
    I walked over to the window and looked out on the front deck, two seconds later a Bluejay flew into a plant pot that was sitting inside the deck. The bird stopped only for a few seconds. Than flew away. I knew this was a sign that dad was right there with me. My favourite bird has always been the bluejay, i have only seen 1 bluejay in Strathmore,

    About 3 weeks ago I was at Home Hardware. I saw there a wooden bluejay. I really wanted it because it reminds me of the bluejay on the deck. I didn’t have the money, so i knew i had to wait. So I hide it behind something so that i could go back and get it.

    It is now January 30, 2015, coming up to the 1 year anniversary of dads passing. We got our income tax money today, I was taking back the Hotel bottles, when i had a strong urge to go and buy that bluejay bird. I went to the store, hoping it was still there. I looking were I put it and it was gone, my heart sank. I starting looking around the area for it. And I found it. I purchased it and brought it home.

    I unwrapped it to but on the shelf by his picture. And i start to sing the song
    Somewhere over the rainbow blue birds fly, theres a land that I dream off, once in a lilaby by, Than I had a good cry! I felt like he was telling me that he is always near me when I see a bluejay,

  54. After I lost my dad, I found a dime so many different times and places over the past 5 years. My family thought I was crazy until it happened to them one day. I also have butterflies follow me around in the summer. After losing my mom in December, there was a cardinal perched on her bird feeder most of the morning on the day of her memorial service. It was there the morning after too. Thanks for sharing these 10 signs from heaven! I believe!

  55. I have been visited by relatives not yet passed. I was called to them and asked if it was okay for them to go. They were worried about the family being dissappointed in them. I said anything they chose was perfect and I would pass on a message or try to help heal. They weren’t ready to pass so I healed what I could and sent them back. I did ask why they contacted me, I have numerous other relatives. They said I was the only one they could reach. This was about a week before they fell and broke there hip and ended up in assisted living. I believe I was in the astral plane at the time. I saw some other things as well. If anyone has had an experience like this I would be interested in hearing. Thank you :)

  56. My late husband passed away in 2002, at the time we were living in England, I decided to travel to my home back in new Zealand as I was a young widow. It was a couple of months after I arrived home and was staying with my folks that I had a really bad night feeling really down and sad, when all of a sudden a wood carving statue that my dad carved which my husband never liked but I loved suddenly started to glow in the middle of the night… was a comfort to know he was with me at this time…. over the years he has visited in many special ways, like dreams, smells and forever sending songs… Forever missed, but blessed to have met and loved this special man. xx

  57. With my deceased father it was a dove that did not budge from my car for a long time on the day of his birthday. We both knew how doves would come into his house to die there on several occasions. My mother said a word of endearment only she ever said to me also conveying being happy. A deceased friend laughed hilariously telling me he had won me to the other side the day I got the telegram informing me of his death in a motorcar accident. I never had any doubt about these experiences and they remain very clear in my memory.

  58. Give me a sign how my mom is doing up in heaven. Hope well and her spirit is healthy she is rich in vibration positive in energy and happy. I want to know what her fav colour is music and food is. Also want to know ig she still practises her faith and uses her rosary daily. Thanks arch angles for helping me with my wishes.

  59. Hi, I have received so many wonderful signs from my son. Humming birds have flew inches from my face, and just stayed there. I could even feel the vibration of there wings. Pennies with the year of his birth, 1973. Heart shapes from flower peddles, to rocks, and cloud hearts. Songs that have come on and given me comfort or answers questions. So beautiful unbelievable things. But the one that stands out the most and I haven’t read anything about this happening to anyone is this: the day after we buried our son and all the people and funeral was over. I was home by myself and started to pray to God, and thank him for everthing that only he knows what is right for me and my son. I was crying so hard and felt such deep emotional pain. I got up and looked at my sons picture and it looked like it was vibrating. Then my electric toothbrush was beeping like I never heard it do before. As I stood up I had a feeling like I had walked into a realm of some kind to which I felt this feeling of pure love!!! Not the feeling of love I have felt on earth before. But it went inside of me and swirling around inside. I really cannot explain it with words because it was the most beautiful feeling I have ever felt. I first thought it was my son, or God, or a angel. But now I feel it was my son. Have you ever heard of this before. I feel very very blessed. But wish it would happen again because it gave me such a wonderful feeling. But it never has. But having it happen at all is very special to me.❤️Deborah

  60. I have dreamed of my loved ones quite often

  61. Today I got two signs. Thanks for guiding me.
