Naivety regarding ADCs.

Discussion in 'After-Death Communication' started by Maria, May 24, 2018.

    I have joined a number of groups on Facebook with life after death themes. I find one of them very comforting and inspiring as so many stories posted there, show amazing proof of the afterlife. What I find poignant however, are the tenuous “signs” such as car registration numbers, and songs on the radio considered to be messages from deceased loved ones. Added to these, are what I call examples of pareidolia, when cloud formations in the sky are thought to be hearts, or unrecognisable shapes in photographs are deemed to be faces of the deceased. Also, red cardinals and butterflies are counted as being visits from the departed. I always therefore think why is it not possible to have more obvious ADCs? Because of this paucity of communication it is so sad that the bereaved have to clutch at straws in naïve desperation, for reassuring signs.

    I think you're being a little harsh. We may not be persuaded by the details in the accounts but it doesn't matter what we think - does it? Whatever gets you through the night... But I've asked a question similar to your own; why can't our unseen friends signal their presence in more obvious ways?

    I find it sad that evidential mediumship isn't what it used to be and if it's waning as much it appears to be then I hope something better will replace it.

    Maybe butterflies are relatively easy.

    I also have some amazing stories about the afterlife BUT noting that could be "proof" of the afterlife/heaven. What is this Facebook group?
    All of my (tenuous) "signs", visitations, communications, butterflies, humming birds, dreams, voices, cloud formations, etc.are and were both obvious and real ADCs - FOR ME! So, to each their own............

    I believe we all get signs what we can understand and receive best. It is so very personal to my eyes that i would never question signs what other share.
    I do remember from my childhood people saying that they understand birds, butterflies, dragonflies as a message from loved ones. I think most of us heard about this even before we lost someone. So maybe for those who passed it is the first easiest way to let us know about their presence using this method cause they know it is simple way to get our attention and trigger awareness. Then they might become more and more creative sending those signs. Or not. Depends on many factors. That is just my opinion.

    And about proving afterlife. I dont know if it possible to prove for everyone. Again it is depending on so many things and it is so personal. I got all my proves already. I can say for me it is proved 100%. But my prove will never be a prove of someone else.

    I absolutely agree. Really, I don't understand why we can't all know, beyond any doubt at all, that our dead loved ones still exist in an afterlife (assuming that they do). Failing that, however, I do think that better signs would help people. I have had some signs, some of them pretty strong, but I still don't know, and I doubt I ever will unless/until my husband actually comes to me, or when I die.

    It seems our situations are so polarised. Some get signs and symbols that help them cope whereas others get nothing, or little, that can help them. It's so sad....

    And maybe he will come. Why not? Maybe he is just waiting for the moment. I wish from all my heart that you get the prove you need♡
    Of course sooner is better but thats not completely up to us only :)
