Do you ever experience something and immediately think of your loved one? Maybe you smell lilacs or old spice cologne. Perhaps you wake up and you can still feel your loved one in the room with you? Or, you hear their favorite song on the radio and your heart fills with love and memories of time you spent with your loved one? These are all signs and gifts that your loved one is sending you.
Here are 7 signs that your loved ones may be sending you…
Have you ever found a feather in your home or space and it just seemed to appear out of nowhere? I remember going for a hike and when I got back to the car, finding the most beautiful white feather sitting on my seat. Feathers are a beautiful reminder that your loved one is near. You can even ask your loved ones to leave feathers for you and then when they do, and they will, feel the connection with them.
My grandfather will leave dimes for me to find and I so enjoy this gift! I’ll find them on the floor, in my car, on the sidewalk, again, seemingly out of nowhere. One day I found 7! I laughed and looked up to the heavens to thank him each and every time. When I find dimes, I know it is my grandfather’s way of reminding me of my value and to focus on what makes me happy.
When I was just starting to give professional readings, I would smell cigarette smoke in the strangest places. I could be in a coffee shop where there was no smoking allowed, and I would catch a whiff. Once, when I was home alone, I thought for sure someone was smoking! While on a walk, I smelled cigarette smoke and a picture flashed in my mind of an older couple. After digging through old family albums, I found the picture I saw in my mind and it was my grandfather, who was smoking in the picture. Loved ones can communicate with cigarette smoke, the smell of fresh baking, perfume or even flowers.
Butterflies, dragonflies or hummingbirds
I’ve had the pleasure of reading for clients who eagerly share with me how their loved ones bring insects and birds into their experience. One client would see hummingbirds at her kitchen window each morning. She lived on an acreage for many years and after her mom crossed over, they became a daily occurrence. She and her mom would have tea and visit each week and she believes in her heart that they still do!
Soon after my client’s father passed away, she began to hear the father and daughter song from her wedding. She heard the song while shopping for groceries, when she was driving in the car, and, she even overheard a man singing the song while filling her car with gas. Each time she heard the song, it brought her back to that day and that special time with her father. What a beautiful gift.
When we are asleep, our conscious mind is at rest and it’s much easier for our loved ones to communicate with us. You can even ask your loved ones to visit you in your dreams and with repetition, you will begin to remember your visits or any messages they bring to you. After our little dog Jessie passed, I can remember waking in the middle night and it felt like he was lying right beside me.
Orbs in Photos
If you happen to see orbs in pictures, this is a sure sign that loved ones are with you. After my daughter’s fifth birthday, I was looking through the photos and it looked like a snow storm of white, orbs floating around the girls at the party. I encourage you to take a look at your pictures and see where your loved ones have joined the photo fun.
These are just a few of the many ways our loved ones leave signs and gifts to let us know they are with us. If you are curious about a recurring sign, ask your loved one to show you again so you can know it’s from them. Get ready for fun and magical surprises when you do!
