It’s common to see people in your dreams. Every night you dream approximately 4-10 times and forget most of them. If you dream of a deceased loved one and you remember it, that’s a strong tell that they might be trying to communicate with you.

Do you still feel your loved one’s presence, like they’re there when you’re sitting all alone? According to some, that’s because they’re sending you a signal that they’re still with you. Some individuals who feel the presence of their loved one, claim that they can even feel their emotions on the other side.

Gifted psychics can detect and understand energetic changes and know that spirits use electrical currents to communicate. If you feel a shift in energy, or you notice flickering lights, random phone calls, or out-of-place songs on the radio, it’s possible that your loved one is trying to contact you from the other side.

Are you receiving unusual calls, or even dreaming of them? Calls from spirits can sound far away or feel authentic even when they’re happening in a dream. When you pick up the phone, you might hear a message but be unable to converse.

Do you sometimes feel like you can hear your loved one, or that your voice isn’t your own and is connected to another entity? It’s common for deceased loved ones to try to communicate through sound, so if you’re having unusual auditory experiences then they may be reaching out.

Sometimes, when we miss our loved ones, they’ll choose to communicate by repeatedly sending signs or symbols from the beyond. So, take note if you keep seeing the same signs and symbols. Your loved one might just be trying to talk to you.
