As a psychic medium, I’ve dealt with spirits most of my life and there are many ways to know when spirits are initiating contact.
The following ways are the most common ways spirits let us know when they are around and if they want to communicate:
1- Apparitional Smells
Usually after a person dies, the first thing family members might notice is the sudden appearance of spirit-like smells which are memories of the person who has died. This can be weeks, months and even years after the loved one has passed. These are smells are ones associated with that person in life. These scents can be cologne or perfume, cut flowers, pipe smoke or cigars, gasoline, the smell of wood or even coffee perking. Often, the smell is a reminder of the person who has passed away. More than any other sense, smells are associated with memory. When this ghostly smell happens, in a sense, the person is being brought back if only momentarily.
2 - Dreams
Dreams are by far the easiest way for the dead to communicate, especially when a person is open and attuned to spirit realm already. It is universally believed that we all travel into the astral realms while asleep and the dead also travel in these realms. Sometimes we may dream of deceased loved ones and it really isn’t a message, it is just a memory or something our unconscious mind is working. But when a dream is especially vivid about a loved one it may be him or her making contact. In the dream life, you are traveling side by side, together again. The dream world is one of the easiest areas for the dead to give us messages. Often the dead will use symbols to relay their feelings and thoughts. Pay attention to those messages.
3 - The Sudden Appearance of Meaningful Objects
The sudden appearance of meaningful objects, ones that are associated with the person who has died indicates the deceased loved on is trying to contact or relay some message. This could be an article turning up that belonged to a deceased loved on, or another item that relates to them and their lives spent on earth. These could be any number of belongings, old checks, funeral cards, letters, or pictures, items of clothing, letters or cards.
4 - Spirit Touches
It can be disconcerting when a spirit touches you, but it does happen. You can be patted, touched and even pushed by spirits in haunted areas. But when the spirit touches you in a soft or caressing way, oftentimes it is a deceased relative or friend reassuring you. Sometimes it may feel as if a hand has been placed on your shoulder or waist, at other times it may feel as a full caress.
5 - Hearing the Voices of Deceased Loved Ones
This usually happens when your mind has gone on autopilot and you are thinking of something or someone else entirely. Behind you, you may hear someone say your name but when you turn no one is there, or when others are present. You may ask if someone called out to you, and usually the answer will be “no.” Sometimes the voice will be recognizable or only a faint whisper.
Another way to hear spirit voices is through a type of “white noise” and that is when there are other frequencies in the room, blotting out the silence. These voices can be hard to make out but that is on indication spirits present.
6 - Knocking Sounds
These tend to sound like they are coming from inside a wall, another room, or sometimes will sound as if someone if knocking on the door. This tends to happen soon after a person’s death. It simply means, “Hello, I made it. I’m still around but I’m also in this other place.” If the rapping sounds continue they are most likely a part of the poltergeist phenomena, another type of haunting that might involve other disembodied spirits or even sporadic bursts of psychic energy which is a type of telekinesis.
7 - What Small Children Say
Children often remain very pure because they are closer to heaven than we are. After all, they have just left heaven or the astral plane to join us in the visible world or the world of matter. Pay attention when small children talk of relatives or people you knew but they didn’t. Do not shame them but also don’t become overly preoccupied. Sadly, as children grow older this connection to the spirit world is often lost or at least goes into hiding.
8 - Pets Act Strangely
Animals are also sensitive to spirits and may bark at empty areas or look at certain parts of the house and act on guard. You can never be sure what this is because they may remember someone being in that area, it could be a mouse or termites, do not be alarmed. But even as often, they pet can sense or see entities that we cannot.
9 - Seeing Shapes and Forms in Your Peripheral Vision
It is rare to see a spirit dead on, as in a full-bodied apparition. If you do happen to see a full-bodied apparition, typically the person will look exactly as they did in life. However, it is more common to see spirits as shapes and forms in your peripheral or side visions.
It is important to remember that after loved ones have passed on, it is best not to contact them until they have adjusted to their new spiritual world. If you mourn or grieve too long, this can disrupt their progress in the next world. One day you will catch up with them and it will seem as if no time has passed at all. But for now, just know that loved ones are never truly gone.
