5 Common Signs From Our Deceased Loved Ones

You aren't imagining it. You really can (and do) get messages but most of us miss the signs from our deceased loved ones.

Receiving signs is irrefutable. According to Bill and Judy Guggenheim in their book Hello From Heaven!, 125 MILLION American's have experienced after death communications. And that's just the USA alone. Isn't that incredible?

Connecting with you from beyond is a courtesy.

Think about it. When you take a flight somewhere, it's a courtesy to contact loved ones back home to let them know we've arrived safely. Right?

Well, it's the same with our deceased loved ones when they pass over.

They want to let us know that they are okay. Our loved ones want to assure us and encourage us. To bring us peace.

If you are open to them, you'll experience them. Love never dies.

5 common signs from our deceased loved ones

We have five senses. Naturally, spirit is capable of using them to connect. Here they are in order of most common to lesser standard…

1. Deceased Loved Ones Can Connect Through Sight

deceased loved ones visual signsThe most common way to receive signs from our deceased loved ones is through sight. More accurately, our mind's eye. By this I mean that we might “see” a past memory, or “see” them in a vision.

Our deceased loved ones love to make connections with us while we sleep. Visitation dreams.

The key, though, as I discuss in my best selling book “Afterlife” is that there is a major difference between dreams and connections. Both occur while we sleep, but are entirely different.

Dreams are typically nonsensical. We all have them and experience them. You might see yourself getting up and going to work on a giant rubber duckie, floating down your street. You wake up and say, “what the heck was that all about?”

That was a dream.

A REAL Spirit Connection Is This…

A connection is where you see–in no uncertain terms–your passed loved one. They may simply appear and say nothing, or they might have a message for you. But the overwhelming feeling is that of love. You'll feel loved, not frightened in any way.

What about visual signs when you are awake? Of course, our deceased loved ones can use virtually anything to bring you signs.

Again. Anything. A bird, dimes and pennies, a street sign, a song on the radio, a feather, repetitive numbers, something you see on the news… anything visual can be a sign.

A key signature of spirit, however, is that the visual item will stand out in a very unique way.

If you're loved one's name was George, and you see a street sign that says “George St.” then that is likely a sign from spirit. However don't be silly… if you drive past George St. every single day, it is not a sign! There's a difference.

I have a hummingbird feeder outside my office window. They come all day long to it. Spirit would not use a hummingbird to get my attention, as another example. That said, if one flew into my office, this would be highly unusual and could be a sign. The difference would be marked.

Just like the connections when we sleep, the “connection” will stand out. You'll *know* that it's a deceased loved one sending a message.

Ron's family was British. His mother loved going to Times Square to feed the pigeons. Ron, on the contrary, loathed them.

“Every neighborhood has pigeons, but in our ‘hood none come around probably due to my negative energy towards them. A year ago I was home with the flu. I was on my couch with a big blanket and a hot cold-medicine drink. Out of nowhere, a pigeon landed on my window sill. It was a very small ledge, and he had a hard time staying on, but without a doubt, it looked like he was trying to peer in to see me. We made eye contact and then he flew away. To be honest, I thought it was a coincidence, but when Mom was alive and knew I was sick, she'd always pop over to check on me. I felt great.”

2. Deceased Loved Ones Can Connect Through Hearing

deceased loved ones hearingThere are two ways that spirit can make us hear things.

The first, naturally, is by actual auditory sound. The other is by mental sound.

When I say Elvis, can you perhaps “hear” his voice singing one of his songs? Sure you can. So while it's not an external sound you are hearing, you most certainly can hear sounds and voices that nobody else can externally.

So, when you hear your deceased loved one say “I love you” and you spin around startled as to who said that, now you'll know where that came from!

Naturally, while you are asleep, they have the ability to communicate to you. They won't always, of course, but they can.

Of course, you can hear actual things such as songs, words, and noises that will bring you back to your deceased loved one by way of a connection.

A client of mine, Nina, lost her husband to cancer some years ago. Nina has moved on and is happily remarried now. But she was stunned to find herself in her car one day waiting for her son to get out of school.

Nina told me, “I don't listen to the radio as I'm often lost in my own thoughts. But I turned it on, and I heard the 80's song, ‘Lady In Red.' That was the song my first husband and I danced to as he loved seeing me in red. It then struck me that it was the anniversary of the blind date where we first met! I was flabbergasted and started to cry. He was still there with me!”

3. Deceased Loved Ones Can Connect Through Smell

deceased loved ones signs smellMy Mom used to use Pond's Cold Cream. It has a unique smell to it. When I do smell it, it instantly reminds me that she's here.

My Uncle, who taught me my very first magic trick, used to smoke a custom blend of cherry tobacco in a pipe. I'm allergic to smoke, but every once in a while I'll get the distinct smell. It's him.

The distinction in the connection is that the scent will be clear in the absence of it. In other words, nobody smokes in my house, let alone cherry pipe tobacco.

Be open to connections of smell.

The last two are less common, but nevertheless, still available to be used by spirit.

4. Deceased Loved Ones Can Connect Through Taste

deceased loved ones signs tasteThe other day I had an overwhelming taste of chive onions and a very, very light hint of saltiness. Weird. But I hadn't had onions in days. Then it hit me! Chives were my Dad's favorite, he'd pour a bit of salt into the palm of his hand, and he would dip the end of the chive into the salt and then bite off a piece.

You might “taste” Mom's cooking for no reason, for example. There will always be a link to the person or particular memory. That's them saying “hi!”

Be mindful that these signs from our deceased loved ones are the easiest to miss and discount.

5. Deceased Loved Ones Can Connect Through Touch

deceased loved ones signs touch

I dare say that your deceased loved ones do touch you more often than you realize. In the busy-ness of our day, we don't notice the touch on the shoulder, the warmth of them holding our hand, etc. But they can and do do this.

How do I know? When I do mediumship connections for clients their deceased loved ones will almost always tell me that they are holding my client's hand, touching a shoulder or something similar… and they FEEL it then. So, it happens. No question.

Be Open To Signs From Our Deceased Loved Ones

Love never dies. Be open to these connections.

When our loved ones pass they want us to know that they are okay. They want to let us know that they are good on the other side and that they are with all the loved ones that have gone on before them.

If they suffered in pain, they want to assure us that they are now restored, happy and alive again, this time in spirit.

Remember, love never dies.

      I have always seen the signs when people have passed on since I was young. My friend Rick who was an amazing man and our neighbor at the beach died Father’s Day after a brave battle with Pancraetic Cancer. The Friday before he died I had the feeling that he would die on Father’s Day, he loved Father’s Day and I felt like he was going to visit his Dad who had been gone a while before Rick. Rick loved his boat and loved to fish on the beach, our beach, it was his spot. Today a week after he passed, I stood in that spot where he fished in about 2 feet of water and I saw something tumbling in the waves and thought is that a fish, it wasn’t, it was a beautiful perfect rose right there making its way to the beach. A rose in the ocean in his spot. It was an amazing moment even my husband who was a non-believer was in shock as I picked up the rose. In my entire life I have never seen a rose in the ocean. It was Rick letting us know he is here and ok.

          This message is for Ginni. I lost my son 4 months ago. Last night I had a dream of him trying to convince him he had died. He did not believe me. I really wonder what that means…

            My new girlfriend, widow for the last. 31/2 years, same for myself. We really like each other a lot . She had a hard time grieving , and me too. She was in a black hole, but I drew her out of it, she is not sure about ever dating again, but she says I changed that. Her dream was , she was entering her house where I was and her deceased husband wearing a large black coat, much like a duster coat, wrapped his arms or hugged her from behind. Preventing her from entering the house. We have been dating past 5 months. Sharing comfort, enjoying time together. What do you make of this dream, ?
            Please and thankyou.

      • when my first passed away ten years ago i scents she was here i could smell her scent i was with her everyday and my husband could feel she was here as well

      my husband died in “09 having gone thru a heart valve transplant, he only survived for six days, his heart was too weak. we didn’t get to say ” goodbye” I couldn’t forgive myself for not saying so much I wanted to say the night before his surgery ( we both knew he wasn’t going to make it, but, neither would admit) he passed on feb,22nd, on my birthday, may 6th… I was living in a metal building, no trees around, yet when I looked outside, there was the most beautiful red bird sitting on the mailbox ( my husband knew this is my favorite bird) this was one of many, many signs I have received from him, and although I still miss him so very much, he will let me know, he is always with me, finding a penny, hearing “our song” when I walk into a store, and what wonderful comfort it brings to me. I may not see him in the physical form, but I know one day we will once again be reunited, of this I have no doubt, as if God allows him to give me all these signs that there is “life in the here after”..there is a good reason for God to be allowing this to occur..giving us comformation.>and I never cease to doubt

        The night my grandmother passed, that I’d only met once in my life, appeared as my/a lounge room window Mosaic. Yes a perfect mosaic of glass colors forming her face. She was warning me of some issues my dad has. And a bossy message I was too young to understand or remember. Tho I told my dad..a lady was mad at you and I had to tell you things but I forgot. The following day my dad got a call from overseas informing his mum passed. He later came to me crying demanding a reason why she came to me. I guessed it was his real mum, he was adopted young. I wonder why she came to me, I had an older brother and sister that would have been more understanding than I.

      The night my Mom passed away, I went home so sad, but somehow expecting a message from her. Her passing left me worried about how things would be with my brother, who I had some ill feelings and I worried how I might react when I saw him. When I arrived home, I noticed a copy of the front page of the NY Times that my Mom had given me. It was from her day of birth in 1921. Wrapped around it was a sheet of highlights from that year. Included was the winner of the Kentucky Derby that year. My Mom always loved watching the Kentucky Derby, which I found very interesting. The winner that year had an unusual name…’Just Behave’! I took that as a message from my Mom and it certainly sounded just like something a mother would say!

        Nancy, ask God for a sign from your parents and he will show you. Try praying before you go to bed for the night, ask God for a visit with your parents and he will send them to you. I have prayed and received visits from all of my lost loved ones except my Grandma Sandy but I know one day she will visit me. All of my visitation dreams are the same. It’s always in a room with no end and light shining so bright and white that I can not see my loved ones faces but I know it is them. We never speak with our mouths, only telepathically and I always awaken relieved to know they are OK but also very sad that I could not stay with them. Theven love you feel during this visit is not going to be earthly, it is the love of God and it is amazing! Rest assured your parents are ok and you will see them again. Heaven is real and your parents are around you still and all you have to do is ask for them to show you. I hope you receive the comfort you need. God bless!

        I lost my son to suicide Feb 24th this year. I hear him say Dad all the time and have had extended conversations with him. I have always been kinda “strange” like this, but sometimes I think I just going crazy. I could tell so many stories, but it brings me comfort that I can hear him. Since his death, we have had so many strange things happen in our home. I have seen his face on walls and on the floor. I have a friend who is a medium. I didn’t know this until after my sons death. She says I’m a medium. I don’t know, all I know is I miss my son so very much.

      For the last couple months to have been thinking about and excited about coming to see Blair in Palm Springs. I’ve noticed the number 44 regularly popping up. I first dismissed it as a coincidence. Then it was showing up more often. I was getting frustrated. Then all of a sudden it was like a light turned on. My mother passed away when she was only 44 and in June this was the 44th year she has been gone

    My mother always connects with me through animals birds insects that we both enjoyed looking at such as the male cardinals miniature goats that scare easily and snails. I say to myself that’s what mom always loved to look at or old 500 records we both use to sing too sitting at the kitchen table. She passed in 2002.

    I believe my Husbands deceased mother saved my husbands life… I was sleeping in the bedroom and my husband was in the living room.. I heard 2 big bangs that woke me up.. so I went into the living room to see what caused the bangs…my husband was sitting on the couch and in a soft voice told me to call 911 because he could not catch his breath..He found out at the Hospital he had pneumonia. If I did not wake up, my husband would not be here today..thanks to my husbands mother for waking me up..

    When I become stressed about things I fell a slight pressure on my shoulder, when that happens I know Daddy is telling me not to worry, things will work out. He is also good at reminding all his kids that he is around by leavings pennies, face side up, all around. My Mom gets our attenion by moving things from their normal places and putting them someplace other. In turn we find something we misplaced.

    My younger brother was killed in 1989 in a auto accident. When we were younger he use to sneak into my room, while I was asleep, ant tickle my feet. Every now & then, when I’m sleeping, I feel something touch my feet… I know it’s got to be him. I also have had a dream of the ‘crash site’ (and his funeral) where he’s laying there and all of a sudden he ‘wakes up’ and lets me know he’s alright (always seems to freak me out)

    My dad, died 1997, always smoked cigarettes in the bathroom (which would leave this ‘aroma’ for short time after he finished…Anyway, shortly after he passed, I was at the dentist, where all of a sudden I smelled that smell. To this day, I still get a wiff of that aroma & know dad’s there 😀

    My mom passed in July. It was very hot that year so I went to the cemetary daily to water the flowers. I was sleeping and heard a phone ring and it was my mom’s voice and she said thanks for taking care of the flowers.

      My mother in law passed 8 months ago in December. She loved beautiful flowers so I planted some at her grave. I was there watering the flowers & bent over pulling some weeds, when I stood up I saw a large heart engraved right ontop of the area she was buried. The grass hasn’t fully grown back & is patchy. The heart is perfectly shaped within the dirt and the patchy grass is in the middle if the heart. I got the chills all over because I didn’t see it the previous times I have been. It could be coincidence but I believe it was a sign if thanks that she sees the flowers.

    I have had both visual and physical connections to my parents who had passed away 30 days apart in 2011. My husband and I were starting to build our home just before my parents passed away. One day we drove up to the site and a double rainbow appeared out of nowhere and lasted until we left the property. I had been sad because they never got the chance to see the property we bought or the pans for the house. I believe this was their way of showing me that they were there.

    I kept experiencing light touches, like butterfly wings on my hand or arms. I had gone to see a gentleman at Lilydale, NY and he said it was my Mom letting me know she is still with me and watching over me. I truly believe that. It has happened numerous times.

    Also lots of pennies…in really weird places. My 1 yr old Grandson suddenly looking over at my parents pictures and up towards the ceiling. Quite a few little signs. They give me peace.

It was a beautiful, sunny day. Suddenly, the sky turned total black, and lightning was coming down . then the black sky changed back to sunny again.. I laughed, and looked up and said Thankyou Lord.

    I also have dreams that he has come back to life. In my dream he picks up and carries on with daily routine things, right where he left off before he passed

    I dated the love of my life when I was 15-16. We broke up because I was young & dumb and scared of love. A few years later he contacted me out of the blue when I moved back home after my divorce. Some things has happened to him in the Navy and he was paralyzed, but I has already known he was and it was ok with me. We stopped dating after a while, my fault again, and I didn’t see or hear from him afterwards. I always wanted to talk to him and explain why things turned out the way they did and hopefully, if nothing else, regain a friend. I saw his cousin, my good friend, in a store a while later and found out he had passed away the year prior. I was devistated. He remained on my mind for years. I eventually found his grave and visited it while I was engaged to my ex, hoping to pour out my heart and tell him things that had been left unsaid, for closure. A few nights later I has the most vivid dream with him in it. I KNOW it was his spirit coming to me. He told me we didn’t have much time, and I told him there was so much I needed to tell him and he responded ‘I know’. Them he said he had to go and got up to walk away. I asked him to stop, sobbing in my dream. He told me he loved me and would see me again. Then he was gone. I woke up crying. I think about that dream all the time, and I wish he would visit me again.

Thirteen months after we got back with each other he passed away after not surviving a liver transplant. That was in June of 2011. I have had many signs and know he is around. We ALWAYS know when someone is our true love and soul mate. I loved your story Khristie… so similiar to mine! God bless you! Jan

    My mother passed away one year ago today. A week after her funeral, during my sleep, she called me on the phone at work. She said “I’m here! I made it!” We talked for a bit, then she asked me “is it two or three?” I asked her two or three what? I don’t understand. “Two scoops or three. I haven’t made coffee in such a long time, and I can’t remember.” I told her she had always used three. “Ok – gotta go make coffee. Everyone is waiting. I love you! Bye.” I woke up and knew instantly that my mother had found a way to make contact with me, and that she was with her family, and that she was fine.

I tried to look outside the door w my son as a baby in my arms & the door was ripped completely off from the tornado. All the sudden my father alive and well came running twards us and things outside wer getting intence, I mean life threatening. Locomotive was being tossed about & Hugh bolders ( big as a house) wer comeing at us. He was directing me wer I needed to go to be safe, and I can rember screaming for Dad to follow us but he didn’t. Then I woke up confused and crying. I miss my father so much my heart still hurts.

    My husband died from cancer 13 years ago. My son and I have found pennies on our walks.
    On 12/30/01, this was his one year anniversary of his passing and we were staying at the Disneyland Hotel. Before we turned in, we went to Build-a-Bear. I made a bear with a heart inside that said “I Love you Greg.” I dressed the bear as a carpenter, because that was his career. I sat it up on a tall dresser cabinet next to a touch lamp. At 3:30 a.m., the touch lamp was on. It was as if my husband had been admiring it. He knows I can’t sleep with the light on. I acknowledged him by snapping a picture.
    My husband knows I can’t sleep with lights or ceiling fans on, so he turns them both on at the highest speed or wattage to get my attention by using the remote next to the door. I tell him I love him and go back to bed. However, on one occassion I was dreaming I lost my front top tooth and knew I couldn’t go to work this way. Beep…on comes the fan and light. I check on our young son and he was asleep. Went back to bed ad back into the dream. The next morning my son comes into my room and says…”mom I have been rolling this around in my mouth all night.” He spits out his top front tooth. I believe my husband wanted me to get the tooth before he choked on it.
    I am scared of the wind and can’t sleep. When my husband was alive he held me and told me I would be alright. One night the wind was so bad and I was in tears. I was laying on my left side. I felt his large right hand on my ribs and heard his voice say “your okay.” I instantly fell asleep and woke up rested, considering I only slept 3 hours.
    My father-in-law passed away 9/15/13 and I was out of town. One day I woke up from a deep sleep to the taste of coffee. I don’t drink coffee, but he did all day long. I actually got up and brushed my teeth to remove the taste after acknowleding his visit. Later that day I came home to my 18 year old son who asked me if I could smell cigarettes. We don’t smoke, but he did. My son said he showered, washed clothes, and where ever he went he smelled cigarettes, including when I walked in the door. He could smell it, but not me. I told him his grandfather said hello.

    My son got married in Poland and I was having a pity party because no one was able to come with me and of course my son and future daughter-in-law were busy with their plans and no one spoke English, so I was alone a lot. I started talking to my mother asking her for some sign that she was there with me. The night of the reception, my daughter-in-law’s cousin (who spoke some English)told me that her brother & his daughter had the same birthday but didn’t know how to say it in English. Her brother finally got frustrated and yelled out 5/5. I said May 5th and her cousin said yes May 5th. That was my mother’s birthday and immediately my pity party was over because I knew I wasn’t alone after all!!!

    The last time I seen my son was at my house for Christmas 2013. I had a very overwhelming feeling that I needed to make his Christmas the best ever. Did not know why I had to make it the best but I just had that horrible feeling. I had made a huge dinner and I noticed that he went back several times for more. I loved that he so enjoyed my food. I just couldn’t keep my eyes off of him. After dinner we had cocktails out in our garage. My son was sitting on his motorcycle and I started to video him for some reason. I just had this overwelming feeling that I needed to video him. I never video anything. While I was videoing my son my husband threw a firecracker at my feet and it went off. I jumped so high and almost dropped my phone that I had been videoing my son. My son laughed and laughed at that moment. He so enjoyed that moment. Shortly after this on January 13th, 2014 he passed away from a horrible motorcycle accident. He was only 27 years old. I have since been so grief stricken that I can’t stop thinking about him every minute of every day. I feel so guilty like I should have told him that I had a horrible feeling that something was wrong at Christmas. To this day I am so worried that he suffered so much in death and I wonder if he is in a good place because he wasn’t into realigon that much. One day after his memorial I was laying in bed and I was looking at all his pictures on the computer. I was crying so bad and then I heard this very loud sound of a firecraker and I even thought I smelled it. I was the only person in the house at the time and I knew it had to be a sign from him because he so enjoyed that firecracker at Christmas. I also find sticks from trees all over my house that I don’t have a clue how they got there. He loved to hike in the woods and I think the sticks were somehow connected to that. I don’t know if I a going crazy but I have to believe he is trying to let me know something. I love when weird things happen now.

      Patricia,
      I had a similar thing happen to me when my son was 11 (in 1982) passed away. It was about 1:30 in the afternoon, the kids were do home about 2:45. I had this awful feeling something bad was going to happen, so bad I couldn’t breath and I walked around my house in tears. My husband had been working two jobs, my thought was he hasn’t been eating right and something was going to happen to him. So I made sure dinner was ready when he got home about 3:45pm so we could sit and eat before he went to his second job. I told the kids to make sure they were home by 4pm because we were going to have dinner together. About3:50 I got a call from my sons boy friend that there had been an accident and that I need to come. I ran out the door it was only across my back yard, I found that my son had been shot by his friend. His friend had already called 911 I covered my son and told his friend to stay with him and ran out the door screaming for my husband. My son lived 25 hours and I thank God every day that my husband was there to be with him. If I had not gotten that fear he would have been gone. If you hadn’t gotten yours you may not have had your pictures and your very special memories. It’s been 32 years since I’ve lost my son.
      Sadly the boy the shot my son passed away last year. He never forgave him self for killing my son. My daughter reached out to him over the years and he was very grateful. We truly believe that my daughter was getting a message from her brother to find and help his friend. It took her a number of years and he talked to her often.
      We who are left behind have got to learn to forgive ourselves for things that happen that we have no control over and truly to treat every day as if it were our last.
      As a side note: The day after my son passed my daughter and I were at the store, when I went to start the car every electrical thing in the car went off. The lights blinking, the horn blowing, the radio going off and on. It only lasted for a min. but both my daughter and I looked at each other and yelled Sean and started laughing.
      It never happened again.

        Let go of the guilt. He was probably a lot like my brother and was gonna do what he was gonna do no matter who said what. Be gentle with yourself the way that he would be towards you.

    My son passed away last January. For his funeral he had on a black suit w/Marion shirt. About a week after his funeral my husband & I saw this boy around my sons age wearing the exact same suit and this kid looked just like my son. Thought it was wierd but nothing more. Then the next two days I saw the same kid wearing the same suit at my work( I work at a college) he never looked my way but that’s when I realized that was a sign from my son. I haven’t had any dreams of my son although most all other family members have, I have that little piece of visual sign lettinge know he’s ok.

    I have a home in Virginia and Georgia. Late last fall there was a katydid on one of the windows of my Virginia home. It was very cold, and could not figure out why it was there. It stayed for a week and disappeared. When we got back to our Georgia home where we have an enclosed sunporch, I found yet another katydid. This one stayed half the winter in bitter cold temps. It took me minute to figure it was my father. He taught me so much about insects and gardening. It was a love we shared till his dying day! I used to love to visit that Katydid. It lived on a blind getting the warmth of the sun viewing my father’s back yard.

    My parents,an uncle & aunt come to me as Rosella parrots – I asked them for a sign that I would understand & know was them and within days 3 birds flew towards me as I was mowing and when I stopped to look at them a fourth had joined them, they fluttered over my head chattering away to me. They then flew off together. These birds are generally only singles or pairs, I have never seen 4 together & never seen them stop over the top of someone. Since that day I regularly see them – not always 4 together but generally at least 2 and not always when I am home, it can be anywhere.

    My Mom & Grandma knew I had a fear of death years ago & when my Grandma was on her death bed, she promised she’d give me a sign that she’s ok. My Mom & her sisters brought her dress to the fune
