Since Your Loved One Died, Strange Things Seem to Happen

We’ve all lost someone close at some point in our lives. Sadly, many individuals believe that once someone has died, that’s it. No more interaction with their loved ones. No more hearing from them. But what if they’re wrong?

Most notably, signs of spirit contact are something that most people miss. In particular, they believe odd occurrences can easily be explained away or are just their imagination.

Significantly, when our loved ones pass, they sometimes let us know that they are near. And more often, they will find ways to let us know they are okay. It doesn’t matter if they died by natural causes, an accident, or suicide. 

So, if you wonder if a loved one is close by, or trying to contact you, look for the following signs.


1. Family Photographs are Moved or Tipped Over

For instance, when our loved ones pass, they know we are grieving and give us signs to comfort and assure us that they are still with us. For example, photographs and other objects that mysteriously move or fall to the floor are not always indicators of an earthbound spirit. Events like these could be the result of a deceased loved one trying to signal you.
Often these signs signal that a loved one is trying to get your attention. If they can’t, they may move to more drastic measures. This usually means there is some kind of urgent message they wish to get across. See if you can tune in with a loved one you suspect is causing the activity. You will most likely get a message that comes out of the blue.

2. Electronic Devices Act Up

Electronic devices are relatively easy for spirits to manipulate. And often, spirits will use electronic items to signal you. Lights may inexplicably turn on and off, Radios and televisions sometimes switch channels on their own. Or, they may use radio frequencies to deliver a message. 

Additionally, appliances could mysteriously be turned on or off. Or, cell phones ring with no one on the other end, or you might hear a staticky noise. Incredibly, some individuals have reported a phone call hearing their loved one’s voice briefly saying something and then disconnecting.

If things like this have happened to you, try not to panic and immediately jump to the conclusion that something of a darker nature is going on. Instead, if you’ve recently lost a loved one and think of them often, it may just be that they are trying to signal you electronically.

3. Seeing Orbs and Flashes of Light

Phantom lights such as orbs, twinkly lights, or a brief flash of light in a room can indicate a deceased loved one is present. Interestingly, although anyone can experience spirit lights, it’s usually animals, young children, and babies that most commonly witness the light phenomenon. For example, babies that giggle at something and you can’t see anything may indicate that a spirit is present. Or pets follow something with their eyes that’s invisible to you. 

So, try taking pictures with your cell phone or other types of cameras. These will capture the lights digitally or on film, even when you can’t see them in real-time. It may just be that a deceased close relative is causing the phenomena.

4. Spirits Often Send Familiar Scents

If you happen to notice a familiar scent associated with a deceased loved one, it’s a strong possibility that they are trying to contact you. For example, if a relative loved a particular flower, you may smell that flower. For example, my mother loved gardenias, and I sometimes notice that glorious scent. When this occurs, I smile and thank my mom for being near me. 

5. Family Documents Mysteriously Show Up

Perhaps you’ve been searching for a document of great importance, like a will or deed to a home. You’ve frantically gone through your loved ones things but can’t find it. Then one day, it appears out of nowhere. 

6. Pets React to Someone Who Isn’t There

Pets can often alert us to an invisible presence even though we can’t see anything. If your pet starts staring at corners, growling at something unseen, or starts wagging its tail or joyfully meowing, chances are they are reacting to someone they know. 

7. Furniture Rearranged

Perhaps you inherited a piece of furniture from your loved one but find it slightly moved or repositioned. When you return it to its original position, it’s moved back again. You keep doing this until you finally realize that it’s your loved one signaling you and want the item placed where they have it.

8. Other Odd Occurrences

As mentioned, signs of spirit contact are when something out of the ordinary happens that you suspect is a sign that someone close to you that’s deceased is sending you a message.
Sometimes it’s a gentle touch, hearing the music your loved one favored, hearing their voice, or something else entirely.

For instance, several years ago, a dear friend died of cancer. There was a significant age difference, and she was like an older sister to me. Actually, my friend had been instrumental in helping me through some very dark times, and therefore we were very close.

After attending her funeral, I came home and sat on the back porch. To my surprise, there was a balloon gently bobbing up and down underneath the tree to my right. I suddenly realized that this was a sign. The color of the balloon was pink—my friend’s favorite color. I think she was telling me that she’s was okay and not to grieve.

Signs of Spirit Contact Conclusion:

Signs of spirit contact is when our loved ones and even pets in spirit find ways to let us know that they are near. These indicators could be through moving objects, leaving familiar smells, making their presence felt, to even causing electronic devices to act up.

If you are unsure of who or what’s causing the phenomena, rely on your intuition. Are you feeling dread, or are you feeling unperturbed by what’s going on? Your intuition and feelings will always let you know if the spirit activity is friendly or not.

Additionally, if you wish to make contact with a loved one in spirit, let them know. They will find a way to signal you that they are around. Then it’s up to you to notice any signs.
