They say that “No person is ever truly alone. Those who live no more, whom we loved, echo still within our thoughts, our words, our hearts.” Losing a loved one is perhaps the hardest experience that anyone can go through. However, the knowledge that they are still with us is the greatest comfort that we can receive in such a difficult time.
If you’ve recently lost someone that you care about deeply, they may be nearby and trying to contact you. Watch closely for these 8 signs that a recently departed loved one is still with you.
1. You Have Goosebumps
Experiencing chills when a deceased loved one is around is one of the most common ways people sense their presence. Spirits are known to be a much colder temperature than we are. Because of that, it’s quite natural to feel cold or get goosebumps when they’re around.
2. You’ve Been Having Vivid Dreams of Them
Everyone has vivid dreams, but these are different. They feel almost real and as if you could reach out and touch them. In some of these dreams, they try to tell you something important, and in others, they just try to comfort you. This is their way of contacting you when they can’t speak to you directly.
3. You Wake Up Feeling Calm and Refreshed
The dreams you’ve been having of them don’t worry, you. In fact, they give you an intense sense of serenity. When you wake up from them, you feel refreshed, happy, and ready for the rest of the day.
4. You Feel Like They’re Nearby
One of the biggest signs that you can get is what your instinct tells you. If it really feels like they’re there, then chances are that you’re right. Your subconscious mind is far more aware of these things than you might think. Therefore, if your mind is telling you something, you should listen to it.
5. You’re Electronics Have Been Malfunctioning
Spirits often use electronic devices as a way of contacting the people that they love. Although it may be scary at first when your electronics start to behave weirdly, they don’t want to scare you. This is just the easiest way for them to try and contact you.
6. You Feel Like Someone is Watching You
Have you ever been sitting somewhere and thought that someone was watching you? When you turned around, it turned out that someone really did have their eyes on you. Normally, we can sense when someone is watching us, even when we can’t see them. If you get this feeling when alone, it’s likely that it’s a deceased loved one.
7. You Feel Safe
With all of these strange things going on, you’d think that you would be completely terrified. Weirdly enough, you don’t feel afraid at all. In fact, you feel comfortable and safe, like someone is watching out for you. Your loved one is radiating positive energy that makes you feel at peace.
8. Your Senses are Stronger
When your departed loved one can’t speak to you or appear in front of you, they can use other methods to try and get their message across. You might smell something that reminds you of them or you may feel something brush against your skin.
Although they’re no longer in the realm of the living, your loved one is still with you. They’re watching over you and making sure that you are safe, happy, and well. Take comfort in the knowledge that they will always be with you, even if you can’t see them.
