Spirit Talking: How to Know if You Are Receiving Messages From ‘the Other Side’

Just as I believe we are all psychic to some degree, I also believe that we all have the ability to ‘tune in’ to messages from loved ones on the other side – without necessarily thinking of ourselves as a medium. Very often spirits can get in touch (or try to) in ways that may be easy to miss or else our rational minds tend to dismiss them. Also, if we’ve just lost someone we can be so cloaked in grief that we miss the signs we are being sent that are meant to reassure us!

There are many ways spirits can get in touch with us but here are some of the most common:


Loved ones on the other side often choose to talk to us or appear in your dreams – and also they know this is the least frightening way. Often the person may appear to be more real than they were when they were alive – this is because the veils that exist between their human self and their quantum self no longer exist. If you have a dream visitation then try to write down as much as you can remember the moment you wake up. You may also find that you will recall more over the next few days as you review the experience. Again, write down everything you can remember. This is not your subconscious at work but real communication.


Did you think you just saw someone out of the corner of your eye but when you turned around no-one was there? Some people may even see a mist or outline but we rarely see the whole being. This doesn’t mean they are not there – or that you are imagining it. Sometimes in the moment between sleeping and waking you may even catch a glimpse of the whole person.

Electricity and Technology:

No, it may not be a Mercury retrograde or a power surge causing your lights to flicker, an appliance to switch itself on or off or your computer to go on the fizz. Your phone rings but nobody’s there. That song that suddenly comes on the radio or you turn on your TV to the show that used to be your loved ones favourite? Do you really think it’s a coincidence?


You keep waking up at the same time every night for no reason. I have even heard of this happening and the person waking up repeatedly at the exact time their loved one passed over.

Moving Experiences:

You’re certain you left that object on the table. Nobody else has been in the room so what’s it doing on the mantelpiece? Don’t be afraid if this kind of thing happens. People who loved you in life do not change and become scary once they have left their bodies behind. This is a way of saying ‘Hi, I’m still here’.

Touch, feeling and smell:

Was that your grandmother’s favourite perfume you just caught a whiff of? Do you sense you are no longer alone in the room even if no one is with you? Did the temperature just drop or did you feel a change in the air around you as if someone brushed your skin or just walked past? Have you ever been someone and thought someone was staring at you and then turned to discover somebody was? These kinds of experiences or ‘visits’ from loved ones are usually accompanied by you feeling at peace and loved. You know everything will be okay – and most of all that the person you love is okay as well.

Remember, as hard as it is to lose someone we love we need to remember that we are all eternal sparks of energy and part of the universal consciousness. And these kinds of messages from our loved ones are sent with the intention of letting us know that  their energy cannot be lost – they are still with us but in a higher vibrational form. Love is after all, the highest vibrational energy in the universe. We just need to be tuned in to receive their messages.

  1. I know I’m being looked after. I had too many things happen to deny it isn’t. Examples:
    1. In a state of anxiety, I was shown in a dream what action I WAS to take when an upset occurred on the oilfield offshore production platform I worked on. I was to pull a knob on a relay to prevent a facility shutdown triggered by an alarm. I didn’t know the relay was there. It was hidden under a panel; And it was the only “pulled to activate” one on the platform for that equipment out of 30 installed on the platform. Every colored scene in the dream, office setup, clouds in the sky, wooden deck, etc. occurred just as it did in the dream. I was shown what I would do a few hours before I actually did it, without knowing that the specific equipment existed at all.
    2. (to keep this short). I’ve had experiences of hearing voices, not in my ears, but from within: reverberating like from within a vessel, an empty bucket. So loud, my whole body shook. These experiences occurred during times of extreme stress; divorce, and financial loss.

  2. I’ve been doing so much research and nothing will tell me what is happening. About a month ago “kill” was written on my glass shower door. I ignored it and erased it as weird things happen in my house all the time. About a week after I started seeing a couple “X’s” written on the shower wall. I told my boyfriend about them and told him not to be playing pranks on me but they weren’t from him. Over these weeks more and more are appearing and they are coming in groups of X’s sometimes with 3 in a row or more jumbled up together. Today I noticed there are now “X’s” upstairs written in orange chalk on my bathroom door. I’m not scared I’m just wondering what message is being sent and why is this happening? Also a bottle of perfume from years ago showed up in my room while I was downstairs for a couple minutes. If anyone has any idea why they are trying to communicate with me or if anyone has had similar issues please help out. Thank you

  3. I know my dad is trying to tell me something by typing on the computer at work when I got the POS manager button it sends me to a long in usesly but every now and then the i hit the button the computer messes up freezes and and takes a few minutes to come up with a couple of letters not making much sense i know it’s my dad but what is he trying to tell me. Please help i wrote down every time he typed to me.

  4. I was visited by my mother in my dream just before I woke up I recently got in a girlfriend boyfriend relationship with a longtime friend we are soulmates so in my dream I seemed to be pulled into the afterlife with my mother she didn’t look the same as I last remembered her she looked like she did in her prom picture she told me a message that not to loose my girlfriend Kelly she said that is really important to me and we’ll have a bright future together then she said more stuff that I can’t remember or understand more like a riddle than I woke up and was overwhelmed with emotions and started crying uncontrollably as if she died all over again and my girlfriend consoled me and asked what happened so I told her what happened. What does This all mean?

  5. I got a random text day it said accident August 14th at 1:04 it scared me a little bit what does this mean? Someone trying to tell me something I mean I was voice texting and it said this maybe I’m overreacting I don’t know but it’s still kind of scares me. Can someone please help me understand

  6. I have had a few rather strange experiences myself but dont know who to ask about them and was hoping that someone here could help. I have seen, what I believe to be a few ghosts. One was an elderly woman in my house walking across the landing, another was a young girl in my old work place who I have seen twice and my colleague has also seen her, and a few other things out of the corner of my eye. I have also felt a few things, such as the quilt has just become heavy on top of me like someone is leaning on it, and I get poked in my arm and tapped on my shoulder. I have also sensed a few things. Now and again when im walking around I will stand in a particular spot or walk into a room and I sometimes get an overwhelming urge to cry or I will feel extremely happy and I will laugh for no reason. I also get the feeling that someone is towering over me in an empty room. My most recent experience was when my aunty died a couple of weeks ago and I was getting the feeling that something wasn’t right in the night and it turned out that my aunty went to hospital in the early hours of the morning. This type of “predicting” experience has happened to me few times but I dont know if any if this is coincidence or if I am having contact with the afterlife. If it is contact with the afterlife I would love to know how to improve it and contact them on purpose rather than by accident.

    Thank you.

  8. I just had an experience today in the hair salon where I was having a light therapy session for my face which was complementary by the owner who has been widowed for a couple of years. To pass the 20 minute time session I was saying the “Hail Mary”, which I have done daily. I kept receiving what I believe to be a message from her husband who passed away. It was to tell the owner that he loves her very much. I’m not a clairvoyant or anything like that. I consider myself to be a normal person, I’m married with three grown up children. I don’t have any mental disorders. I don’t drink or smoke and live a quiet healthy life. In the past I did drink socially and go out to dinners with my husband and friends. This is to give a picture of how normal my life is and yet I had this incredible experience today. What gives? Can anyone tell me so I can understand this. It’s not like I can tell my close friends because they might think that I’m crazy.
