Do you sometimes feel like you are not alone after a loved one has passed away?
Having someone close to us, be it a family member or a friend, passed away is always something hard to go through. Especially since we care deeply about our loved ones and the grief that follows after all of the funeral formalities is sometimes difficult to bear,It is, unfortunately, part of the cycle of life, and we can only try to move on and keep them in our memory.
However, it is sometimes the case that the spirit of our loved ones comes to visit us and leaves us with signs that they are around. There are countless types of signs that people talk about having experienced, and some sound more credible than others.
From being able to catch their unique smell and feeling someone coming inside the room all the way to the more tangible signs, we have gathered the most common ways to tell that a deceased loved one came to pay you a visit!
Have you ever experienced the visit of someone who has passed away? Let us know in the comments!
The day after my mother died, I was just standing in the living room of my parents’ house in the middle of the day, and my mother hugged me from behind. Another time after I had put one of my many dogs down, I kept hearing his tags jingling down the hall. I have a friend who recently lost other husband, and she said when she was in bed one night, the covers lifted, and she felt her husbands leg next to hers.
Thank you, enjoyed signs that a loved one is still with you.
Yes I’ve had that experience. 1968 I was in Khe Sanh during the 77 day seige during the Tet offensive. We were on hill 881 south and unable to be resupplied food or water or ammunition. We went 9 days without any food or water. Things were getting desperate, supply helicopters were being shot down or fog prevented them to resupply us. My Father had died 6 yrs earlier when I was 14. Now at 18 I was reassured in a dream that my Dad came to me and told me not to worry, I would be safe and we would be all right. I woke up the 9th morning of having nothing to eat or drink and wasn’t thirsty nor hungry. We did finally get supplies that day. It gave me peace of mind and I was totally fine with my remainder of my tour. I know it may sound silly but I know my Dad came to me.
I don’t believe the dead knows what the living is doing nor the living knows what the dead is doing, per the BIBLE. Our loved ones will forever live in our hearts and we will always carry them. So it’s natural to have that sense and feeling they are around us.
Yes I have . My husband passed away 3 1/2 years ago. About one month after he passed we could smell his cologne in our bedroom like if he had just put it on. I dream him a lot and my sister that passed 8 years ago. They are so real.
Recently I experienced something out of the ordinary. I was home alone and I live in a two story home. All our decorations are still up. I have several villages that I put out. I had not done this since my husband passed. On the table with one of the villages I put a Santa riding his carriage with little rain deer . It also plays music. I didn’t wind it but all of a sudden it starts playing the music. I was upstairs in my room, opened the door and sure enough the music was playing. I went back in my room. It continued to play for about 10 minutes, stopped and then started again! I really don’t know what to make of it. There is no logical explanation other than my husband came to say hi. He knew how special Christmas is for me and how I enjoy putting my villages out. Any comment?
MY WIFE OF 55 YEARS ALMOST DIED ON DECEMBER 30 TH , THE DATE OF YOUR ARTICLE , BUT DIDN’T !
HOWS THAT FOR A SIGN , THAT GOD IS LISTENING !
My former died as result of motorcycle accident. He was 2.5 yrs persistent vegetative. At his funeral I was outside church watching pallbearers carry casket to hearse. After he was loaded up I saw an Indian Motorcycle Scout coming around the corner in front of church. Indian Motorcycle is where he and I met. <3
The Bible say The living know they will die, the dead know nothing. This is the inspired Word of GOD. There are fallen angels whose intent is to deceive and mislead those who doubt the word of God to separate them from GOD. LORD help them to choose YOU!! In Jesus’ name Amen.

For the past several years I have been dreaming dreams that include my deceased mother and brother – sometimes together in the dream. Never my father. The dreams take place in an apartment that I grew up in – I can visualize the exact details of the rooms. My brothers dreams are usually upsetting due to the sexual nature of them, while Mom’s deal with disorganized house – which was never like her! Almost every night I have these dreams!
Being touched on my back , (left side above my belt line) , i turned around to see who was behind me and there was nobody there. I was bowling on a league and I felt she had touched me as I was waiting to bowl again. It was on her 1 year anniversary (to the day) of her crossing over. Also, a song on the radio a week prior to that, touched my heart and brought tears. I used to drive and put my hand on her side of the car and she would hold my hand when she was alive. Now I put my hand over there when nobody is there and visualize her holding it. The song was from Celine Dion called the Power of Love telling me when I reached for her she was there.
Very nice topic! As a suggestion read all books by Allan Kardec, a French philosopher (1800’s) who talks about those experiences with our loved ones who have passed and are now in spirit, living in the spirit realm. “The Spirit’s Book” talks about us as spirits living there. Hope it will be helpful.
Please send info regarding loss of loved one.
OUR BOYS AND MYSELF WERE WALKING IN THE PARKING LOT OF A BASEBALL STADIUM WHEN OUT OF NOWHERE THE STRONGEST SMELL OF ROSES CAME UPON US THERE WAS NOBODY WITHIN A BLOCK OF US I KNOW THAT WAS MY WIFE WITH US BECAUSE NOTHING GAVE HER MORE SATISFACTION THAN FAMILY BEING TOGETHER ALSO SHE LOVED BASEBALL!
I have had just about all these experiences at one time or another..Though the feeling of someone left me unnerved and sent chills down my back..I believe it was one of my parents. I have experienced the lights go off and on like the light bulb was getting ready to die but it hasn’t happened yet…It’s comforting to me to know that my love ones are near and watching over me…I’m still looking for an article that has recently disappeared..
I’ve seen enough signs – which I won’t go into here, too long – that I believe people are not just ‘gone’ after they die. I’ve gotten signs from my father, mom and sister that could not have been just coincidences.
yes. all the time.
my neice sends me rainbows.
my grandfathers animals.
my parents have a beautiful family of cardinals all over my yard.
music, feathers and coins have graced my paths often.
i loved you all and miss you everyday.
How about blooming plant we had for over 20 years never bloomed until after my husband passed away. I know it was him
Same thing happened when my mom passed. The flowers were yellow. Her favorite color. When she was alive we had talked about why that plant had never bloomed.
Night after my Father’s funeral, My Mother was still very upset and distraught, and us three Sons were with her. She wanted a sign from God that Pop was OK in the “Afterlife.” As we were walking down her hallway, the light flicked “on and off slowly” three times, representing a sign to her from Pop that her three Sons would take care of her. She was re-assured.
My husband passed away in the fall. Later on, a small yellow flower bloomed in the ground outside our kitchen window. It was too cold for a flower to bloom, and I had never seen this variety of flower ever before. I believe he sent it to me to let me know that everything was OK.
My husband of 72 years passed away on Nov. 1st-2019, I get feathers very often in strange places in my home. Last week a huge brown feather on my coffee table right by where he always sat. I know he is watching over me. I feel safe when I get the feathers. He promised to love me “Till the end of Time.”
I want signs but I don’t know if I have them or not but at a store I was in I decided to go down a isle and I saw a lady talking about after life to another lady. Of course it caught my attention and after she finished talking to the woman, she asked me about the two young men with me. I looked at her and asked her what she was talking about. She described them to me and lo and behold, it was my son and brother who had passed on! I never come to this store on this day of the week but for some reason I wanted to come this special day. I am happy that I went that special day.
I did, it’s above.
My husband passed away 7 yrs ago. Before passing I asked him to give us a sign he “made it”! Ever since all 4 kids and I find dimes. Nice new shiny dimes. For me, when I am under stress… I look down and there it is. I have a small jar of dimes collected!! It happens to all 5 of us!!
My late wife came and visited us during her older brother’s birthday. She tilted both of our cakes to its side letting us know she is attending his brother’s birthday party.
my grandmother, i went to her funeral in england and we stayed at her place which also kept th body in wake until then, we where outside to smoke and over flow . i noticed a peculiar green growth at the back of her garden, and watched it blume into one spectacular rose the day of her in turnment , it was very early in season to do so, i believe granma was making her statement of well being.
I’ve seen and heard spirits all my life. I was born without heartbeat or breath, remember watching what was happening in the room while still in the spirit before being pushed into the body as the heart started beating and lungs filled with air.
I often feel, hear, and see those in the spirit around me and others.
During my grandparents funeral the light went off and on. When my grandma visits the fragrance of her dusting powder is there. My grandfather comes with the smell of his pipe tobacco that we use to give him for Christmas. My mother would come with the fragrance of one of her perfumes. My sister passed 2 years ago and she visits with the aroma of coffee. She loved her coffee. The last time was cigarette smell. My family visits a lot.
Before my mom passed away, I told her that if she can to come back to visit me. She said she will if she can. There are times I feel air breathing in my face even with no air or heat on in the house. I also feel like someone gets in the bed with me. My daughter says she felt like grandma was visiting her by getting in the bed. It felt so real. I give myself a BIG hug like she use to hug me. I could feel the love.💞🙏💐
My wife passed on April 24th 2020.
She was a brillant woman.
My television kept blacking out for a minute or less, go black, come on go black.
So I purchased a new tv, wasn’t long and it was also going black like the old one.
I told a friend that used to work for my wife at the hospital, who told me Sandy’s doing this.
Next morning I looked up at the ceiling in our bedroom and said darling in heaven, Margo told me you are blacking out my tv.
The next two days it did not go black, on the third day I looked up at the ceiling and said, if you are watching tv with me, black out my tv. a minute later it went black.
My wife moves things about the house also.
I also joined her church, which was Catholic, the first time I attended mass, I was listening to the homily, all of a sudden I had the stronger smell of a lotion she used to wear, it was a Ralph Lauren product, it smelled so swettly.
Now every time I go to Mass, she now uses perfume to let me know of her presence.
I also smell her presence around the house many times.
Yes, they are definitely with us, and it is so comforting to know this.
S about the
My deceased mom visits me
My husband passed away in November 8, 2021 and his closet light comes on every night. I sometimes feel his presence. I see shadows and I know it’s him. The love we shared was so beautiful.
I went to visit the grave of the love of my life. I took two roses to leave there. As I was leaving I looked down and saw pink. It was a tiny rose look alike flower growing on a weed in the desert. I picked a small section which included the flower. I was visiting from out of town so I took it and put it in a small jar of water. When I left I brought it home. It survived the flight and for the next 6 weeks it continued to put on blooms. When I decided to plant it in soil it died. I have returned to his grave twice since then hoping to be able to get the weed and get it to grow. I’ve been unsuccessful. I always felt like the gift of the mini blooms at my initial visit was him giving me flowers.
My daughter passed on April 8, 2022 (my only child) in Belgium. She was in the process of returning. I wanted her to be near me my last stretch on this earth. I am 81 years old. Do or have you ever ask yourself, “why me Lord”! Now there is only ME!!
I smelled coffee , I knew my husband was the only one who drained coffee
Our beloved son died. I feel him squeeze my shoulder from time to time. When I say “oh, never mind, it’s just my arthritis,” he shows me what he thinks of my cynicism by squeezing it 2 or 3 times in a row. I get the message.
Its an Irish tradition to find a penny is a contact. As my mother was near the end my sister asked my mother that Dad leaves penny as a message, what would she leave us…she said she would send dimes. She has sent probably 7 dimes in the 4 years she’s been gone. Sometimes accompanied by a penny. So the whole family has heard from both of the them. Great gift and brings back many happy memories.
My mom always wore a favorite sports team jacket. It was a ladies jacket and when she wore it, I always commented how I liked it. I never saw another person ever wear that jacket. We moved to northern florida and the town we moved to, I knew that our childhood neighbor had moved to the same town but had no way of getting in touch with him. Approaching my birthday I was very depressed as it would be the first birthday in my life without my mother. I kept thinking “mom if your around please let me know so I won’t feel alone”. The day before my birthday we went to church and sat down. A few minutes before the service started two women came and sat next to me. The woman closest to me had on my mother’s sports teams jacket. The exact one that my mom wore! I thought that was a sign from her. After the service I was talking to the women and it turned out that the one the lady with the lady next to
Me was from my hometown, and married to my childhood neighbor! I knew then that my mom sent them to me.
I really liked this article. My mother passed away January 6, 2020. We were very close. We lived together most of my adult years. I have had many signs of her being with me. Her birthday is 617. Every time I get in my car or pick up my cell phone that number is always on a screen. One time my cell phone pictures flickered all the way back to a picture of a ring she bought for herself and my sister and I. I also felt a brush on my arm while I was on my bed playing a game on my iPad. And then there was the red Cardinal right outside my bedroom window in a tree about 6 feet from me. I have had so many signs how can I not believe she is with me…
My dearest friend was always there for me though she lived in the Bahamas and I in the states. We were inseparable in college and I always credited her for getting me through it.fast forward.She comes to daughter’s wedding and spends the week with me afterwards , 2 years later she loss her battle with cancer and passed away at her home in the Bahamas. Of course I and my husband attended her funeral. After returning home I scolded myself for not having something , a video , a tape, with her voice,though I could always hear her voice with the sweet British and Island dialect. A few years later, looking through my gallery of photos to decide what goes or stay , I found a strange item, looked like woven cloth. I hit the the play video and the cloth was waving gently my voice says how was your sleep and the reply was, “I slept so well girl, it was her voice, heaven knows I couldn’t believe it I had an overflow of tears, her voice.When I showed the video to my husband , he wanted to know if I recalled recording, no never, why would I tape flowing fabric during a conversation. I don’t know what to say,I am speechless. Now I found what I had wished for ,her wonderful voice.Did she come back to give this to me. It is mine for always to remember her by.
My mom passed away in 2014 but both my ceiling fan and my doorbell act strangely. For instance, my ceiling fan goes on by itself (and no, it’s definitely not a “short”) in the wee hours of the morning. It will also turn itself off sometimes. My doorbell will ring and my place isn’t very large and it takes me only a few seconds to look through the peep hole to see if there’s anyone out there and there never is! Could this be her? I talk to her and ask her what she wants. If I tell one of my sibs about it, my sister will say that I should greet our Mom and ask her that.
My mom who passed away in 2014 would turn on my ceiling fan in the wee hours of the morning and turn it off as well (and no, it’s not a “short”!) My door bell would also ring and there was never anyone out there.
My daughter, Holly, passed in January 2021. A month or so later we saw a couple of leaves of a holly bush growing through some gravel next to our house. There are no holly bushes anywhere on my property. I would say that was a hello from Holly. It is still growing and about a foot tall now. I am also 81 now and miss her constantly. There have been other “hellos” also. Thank you Holly.
The way that I know that my son who passed away is with me in Spirit is that sometimes when I walk into the kitchen, my refrigerator makes a knocking sound. It never did that before Brandon died. Also, if I find a penny, or a quarter out of nowhere, I know he is there with me.

My dear Dad passed away in September 2012. His first sign to me was actually 2 weeks prior to his death as I was in the midst of planning his funeral. His second sign was on the day of his funeral. Since then, he has sent me 26 more clever and peace-providing signs…letting me know that it’s “all good” on his side of the veil. Thanks, Dad!
My wife passed away in 2003. and her presence still be felt in the hose that I live, regardless of the house. ( i have moved 3 times already, even in a different continent) and her presence is always there. I can feel the energy and seen the ghostly figure moving around the house.
For some is just a coincidence, non believers see a different thing. ghost are real. They are the energy that ( according to the science con not be destroyed or created) where left of the person that was alive. They live in a different dimension. and they can communicate with those that believe in them at will. this concept can not be explained to zealots of fanatics, is not well understood.it has nothing to do with been psychological impair. crazy, paranoid or delusional.
My son passed away down state. We were devastated. I was sleeping on the settee, and heard someone come into the basement, and coughed. I sat up and said his name, then realized he was gone. Next thing I heard him in his bedroom like he was on his phone. My husband got up, and I told him he had come home. He just looked at me. I got a call shortly after from the funeral home they had him there with them.
My grand daughter (13 years and 6 months) AND my grandson (15 MONTHS old) were both killed by a drunk driver on my 71st birthday 10/10/2014. Although any day would be just as tragic, my grand daughter lived with me for 9 years and we were extremely close. A month after their funerals, my grand daughter appeared to me in the form of a halo around the light in my main bathroom. I took a picture of it. It lasted a few minutes and prior to that “visit” she came to me in a dream that I swear was the REAL thing. She kissed me on my lips and it awokened me and I called her name. There has not been one day I have not cried for both these babies. There has been other times she visited me. 4/18/19 I came home one day and saw her sitting on my porch as I pulled my car into the driveway. My grief is REAL and ENDLESS. She was everything I wanted to be!! Brilliant, talented, loving, kinder than anyone I have ever met. a giver–never a taker. People, especially her ex-teachers, continue to praise her. She spoke three languages, first place in her Mathematics age group exam, an artist, a philanthropist, played sheet music (piano) at age five;in 3 dance concerts and so much more! To miss her is an understatement.
My father passed away two weeks before my son was born, from a horrible medical mistake. As my son grew up, he would always tell me that his papa lived in his closet. He would wave at him and say good night to him. Then about four years later he was taking photos from an old camera I had. When we looked back at the photos he just had snapped he says to me mom mom that is papa, the man who lives in my closet. I took a closer look at the photo and sure enough it looked just like him. I could not believe it. I showed my brother, my nephew and my mom who’s husband was papa, the photo and they could not believe what they were seeing. We are total believers! You just can’t make this stuff up. To this day my son still has a connection with him and still remembers those many days seeing him come and go from that closet. 💫❤️🙌
My Mom was everything to me. She was always there whenever I needed her emotionally. She was a widow for many years, but when she became too old to be alone my husband and I moved in with her. She passed 12/20/06 one day before my Birthday. She had been in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) for a few weeks (on a ventilator), when the decision had to be made (her organs failing). I reluctantly said OK. Our family was there by her bedside until she passed. She was awake the whole time fighting the massive amount of morphine she was being given. I sat there holding her hand wanting desperately to talk to her and hear what she wanted to say. When the nurse removed her tube she wasn’t able to speak, but smiled. A few days after she was gone I smelled the scent of Roses (her favorite perfume) when I was in the bathroom. I told her she was welcome to visit anytime she wanted as long as she didn’t cause any problems. She has been good about that. I dream of her occasionally but she never speaks. Right when I think she is going to say something, I wake up. So frustrating. I love her and miss her so much, and can’t wait until I see her again and to finally hear what she has to say!
I was a teacher and stayed late many days to work in my room. Often I would feel the presence of my mom in her usual raincoat coming into the room and gesturing for me to leave and go home. I was moved to another classroom on a different floor. A young teacher was put into my room. After several months, and she often stayed late as well, she approached me one day and asked me if there seemed to be a semblance of a figure once in awhile that came into
that room as she was working late. I told her my story. She said, “well someone, and I am glad it was your mom, is looking out for me now. She did not act scared at all !!!!!!
Hi EVERYONE. I would like to share the true feelings of a passed loved one coming to visit.
In 1991 I lost my partner of 10 years to complications from aids. Since the blood is the way of travel.. he developed a type of cancer that turned our lives upside down. We discovered he had the cancer and one year later… he died. We were tight… and I mean tight. He was the greatest person in my life except mom of course. And she knew how close we were and she too loved him. We found out he had HIV a little after 1 year of our lives together. We actually found out the day my father was buried. We continued our lives together for 9 more years. We developed a wonderful relationship in the final days.
After being in the hospital for what turned out to be the last stay. The doctor told us a blood transfusion was not going to work anymore. Actually at the state it would be a waste.
I moved from the apt. we had shared even to his death. I purchased my first little condo. He knew the guy that I purchased it from. IN fact one day he said he wanted to ride over to see the place. He worked with this guy so he was well known to him. The visit was nice and the guy actually said why dont you two buy it. It would be perfect and less to take care of. We said we would think about it. Well my friend died before any of that could happen. But it did take place 3 months after he died. I was moving in..to start growing even more in my relationship with him and didnt know it. The first night I was there.. I was awakened around 4 in the morning by a loud noise of what sounded like glass breaking. I had boxes everywhere.. but in the living room I found a bulb had broken in the ceiling fan and the glass shade was on the floor unbroken. I stood there in awe. I couldnt really understand how it happened. But felt best to rethink it in the a.m. I returned to bed.. fell asleep and it was a short time later I heard a noise in the bathroom. I heard rattaling of what sounded like rocks and glass. With things already waking me and not harming me.. I thought to stay in the bed and check it out in the a.m. So when I awoke I of course did my bathroom stop. And as I walked by the sink I noticed the medicine cabinet was cracked open just a bit. I knew I had closed it because it actually had a little tightness when you pushed it and would have to make two little pushes to close it. I did before bed. When I opened the cabinet.. there on the two glass shelves were all my medications where I had placed them. Only problem.. they were lined evenly on the shelf.. placed in alphabetical order. When I saw that I automatically knew it was my passed friend. This was how he did his cabinet. I actually felt his presence too. There was an event of the smell of his favorite aftershave. Which was nowhere in the house. All this was actually a good feeling. I was never scared. Some time later I talked with a close friend that was involved with spiritual readings. I had never used her.. but I thought to discuss this with her and in the conversation… she asked was I wearing a cologne. I never wear cologne. she said it was a fresh smell of what was of the fragrance of lavender seemed. I knew it actually had to be lavender. He bathed with a bath lotion that was of lavender. I told her of the happenings of my new place the first night there. She told me that the breaking of glass was when his high energy broke through our earthly energy around us. She said when the energy is high it will actually break glass even windows will break. she went into all the things that come with it. I was actually taken back. It felt like I was pulling away from my religious beliefs now… but she promised it wouldnt happen unless I let it happen. So she stayed and worked with me to settle down my high energy I had surrounded myself with. It can be hard to do.. if you let it. But it went well. We talked some time later again. She asked how I was doing.. my response… well there are some things still going on that has been a little disturbing. She asked why it was disturbing and I said because it involves my friend hanging around me. So she said we needed to get together and see what was going on. I told her.. it was a lot going on. She then said.. I know.. I am receiving a message from him and he wants to show you it is him. Not to be afraid. That he would not hurt me. So we set a date.. it was a month later due to my work schedule. But things had really started happening. And with that.. I’ll say good night to all and to all OPEN YOURSELF TO THE POSSIBILITY OF FEELING YOUR LOVE ONE WITH YOU. Afterall… they love you as you loved them. All I can say… my life has been full of wonderful happenings and sightings of loved ones that have gone on before. P.S. watch for those flashes of light around you. Angels are trying to tell you something. Listen in the quiteness. They are there.
