11 Signs A Deceased Loved One Is Nearby
1. You have powerful visions while meditating.
There are many techniques used by the spirit world to communicate with us and one of the most common ones is – talking to us when we silence our minds. Be very mindful of the thoughts that come to you during meditation, they might be from a deceased loved one. You might also receive visions from them during meditation; they might sit next to you and chat you up or they might engage in an activity you love so much
“The spirit world is able to get through to you easily when your mind is still and clear. Meditation is often referred to as ‘sitting in the silence. Whenever you want to reach Spirit from this side of life, start by sitting in the silence.” ~ James Van Praagh
2. Your senses seem more intense.
Sound, vision, taste, touch and smell are some of the ways spirit communicates. For instance, you might smell a perfume your loved one used to wear; they might be around. You might also see them or hear their voice calling out. You might also feel that the room has suddenly become cold or you might feel them brush up against your skin. Lastly, you might have a taste in your mouth which taste like the dish they loved cooking all these signs might mean that they are present and close to you.
3. Electronics suddenly malfunction.
Spirits might also make use of electricity to communicate for instance; they might use a radio frequency to try to communicate with you. You might have seen this in a couple of horror movies but some people have also attested to this happening in real life. This is not to scare you, as your loved ones wouldn’t want to scare you. They just want to make use of earthly realm to communicate with you.
“Remember that although bodies may pass away, the energy that connects you to a loved one is everlasting and can always be felt when you’re open to receiving it.” ~ Doreen Virtue

A study of 20 cases of after death communications discovered that people who have had encounters with a deceased loved one are able to cope with grief better. This might be because it supports the spiritual beliefs of the persons involved or because they felt reassured, however, they were able to cope with grief better.
