6 Ways Spirits Try to Communicate with You Directly!

Working professionally as a Psychic Medium for over ten years has taught me just how important and life-changing a reconnection with a loved one can be.  I am grateful to have the opportunity to help clients every day reconnect with loved ones that have passed over.

If you are unfamiliar with mediumship or want to hear about a few of these reconnections, they have been documented in They’re Not Gone by A.P. Morris. (Available on Amazon.com)     

Generally, psychic medium’s ability to relay messages from a spirit to a person is either something they were born with or developed after some type of near death experience. I’m sure many of those who have experienced a mediumship session would attest to the fact that they probably would have been unable to receive the same messages on their own.

However, every person has the ability to receive messages from their loved ones from the spirit world. Recognizing these subtle signs can be easy to miss.  But if you become more aware of yourself and really pay attention, you may be surprised at the many messages being sent your way that you just weren’t aware of.

Here are 6 common ways spirits try to communicate with us:

1. Music – Most of us love music.  It brings us joy, reminds us of people or memories, and for the most part evokes emotion within us. Have you ever found yourself thinking of a deceased loved one and suddenly the music seems to get louder, although no one has turned it up?  Have you ever been driving in your car and felt down or worried about something and a song came on and the lyrics seemed to fit you and your current situation to a tee?  So the next time your loved one’s favorite song comes on, turn it up, roll the windows down, and sing along.  They will be singing with you.

2. Goose bumps – The ones when it isn’t cold out and you’re not sick.  When you are listening to someone and what they say seems to ring so true…that you get goose bumps on your arms or the back of your neck? It may be a loved one nudging you to pay and attention.  

3. WordsEven if you aren’t a psychic medium, there may be times when a loved one or guide wants to help you so much you may hear an actual word. Not from another living person near you, but just a simple quiet yes or no, left or right, when you are faced with a question you are having trouble with.

4. PeopleSometimes, more times than you could probably imagine, people even total strangers cross your path to help you out. It could be a smile on a rough day, words or comfort or guidance when you least expect it, or people coming into your life for a short time, yet you feel as if you’ve known them your whole life.  These may seem random, but a lot of the time these are all messages to help you.

You might have even done this for someone else without realizing it.  Have you ever, even when you didn’t mean or even want to, did or said something to a total stranger?  A kind act, a smile, or a few words that you aren’t sure where they came from, could be your way of giving to others by allowing yourself to be a message vehicle.

5. AnimalsSigns from nature are another great way to ‘get’ messages from loved ones. Were you ever thinking about a loved one (who just so happened to love blue jays) and you saw a blue jay in your yard? (Which is rare where you live.)  Were you ever struggling with something and a butterfly landed on you? (Which just happened to be your mom’s favorite.)  These and so many more are subtle messages to you that you are not alone.  

6.     ElectronicsWhether it is through your TV, computer, or phone, loved ones can be sending you messages. Were you ever watching a show and something your loved one used to say to you was said? (And it seemed that at that moment the volume went up higher) Have you ever meant to call someone, yet your phone accidentally dialed someone else?  Did you ever happen upon something you had been searching for while online looking at something completely different?  Spirits often use electronics to help them get their message to you.

Loved ones want to help guide you through living the best life possible. At the very least, they want you to know, they’re not gone, you are not alone, and that they love you.  Why not slow down, listen, and catch those messages?

  1. My husband Pat passed away in janury of 2013 of Liver cancer. Before He died I have bought this Ballon where some stores put air into it.Any how it says you have the key to my heart . I dont know if its he moving it or not

  2. My dad passed away, we had a very difficult relationship. I work reteats so the first retreat I worked I prayed to my dad to come with me. This was 3 1/2 months after my dad passed. Through out the weekend I would get goosebumps on my right arm, I am in menopause so I run warm. I didn’t realize it was my dad right away, it definitely got my attention. At the end of the retreat I heard my dad’s voice in my ear telling me I ‘m proud of you kiddo. Just what he would have called me. Then I knew. He has since come to me quit often. Especially when I meet people who have loved ones who have passed. At first I felt a little strange sharing the message he was insistent I share, not anymore the looks of amazement I get confirm they know what I’m talking about. Dad I’ll continue to trust you.

  3. Hi my son who was 19 passed on October 17,2013 . He did of a very rare brain cancer called atrt. We have had many many many sounds that he has been around. We are extremely happy about this. My phone will without prompt have my son’s you tube videos pop on my screen. On Xmas morning my stream of photos from an engagement were suddenly now work every other picture having my son in the stream. I took video of it because I wanted to be sure u want dreaming. On the day after Xmas my ipad photos started rearranging themselves in front of my eyes they would start and stop. I’d say Steven is that you and then out would do it again. I woke my husband up and said Steven can you show daddy, the photos moved again. I asked of the was something he liked and the photo of the funeral popped up. Then I went back to my stream of photos from the engagement and each of those pictures of Steven that wetter inserted every other slot were all gone! It reverted back to my original upload. On New Year’s eve I was up at his grave site and my phone was on my lap no touching it and at 11:400 a picture of Aaron Paul from breaking bad piped up on my black screen saying yo! Happy new year bitch!! Steven was a huge breaking bad fan. Aaron Paul caked him when he was in the hospital. I spewed my husband and girl friend what popped up we all smiled. On the 9th of January I was very sad and was thinking of him a lot and so was his friend. She asked Steven of she could have a nice sunset . She liked up most beautiful sunset worth the largest heart appeared. She sent me the photo.
    My husband took a picture of our dogs looking at something on the floor and there was nothing there when he took the picture a light appeared in each spot. He didn’t knee where it came from. We have had a lot of these sorts of things. It’s very comforting.
