Every week I will be discussing a different topic on grief and loss, suicide, cancer, and spirituality.
We are all united when it comes to a loss – a loss of a loved one. This could be a loss of a husband, wife, partner, child, mother, father, sister, brother, grandparent, friend, relative, and the list goes on …
Needless to say we all experience loss in one form or another – if not, multiple losses.
I have received many signs that our loved ones are around and would like to share a few.
Vivid dreams – A visit from a departed loved one usually with a message. Unexpected occurrences – Their favorite song suddenly playing on the radio, a sudden smell , a fragrance like their perfume, hearing their voice or hearing your name called unexpectedly, goosebumps or chills will tell you they are near, birds or animals of all kinds that appear only once or are irregular in mannerisms or appearance, a misplaced item appearing or moved. Seeing your loved one as an apparition or orb. Feeling or sensing your loved one especially after thinking about them or looking at their photo. Lights or electronics suddenly coming on and off for no apparent reason.
Now this could be a mere coincidence in some cases, but I’ll let you be the judge. I’ve experienced each one of these signs and it left me with a sense of peace knowing that we are not alone.
