    This sticky is a repository for people to describe events that they think are likely messages from the other side.

    I'll go first...

    Recently I had a meeting in which others suggested I look at Thule, Greenland as a place to pursue my work. I'd never heard of Thule, and had to look it up. Next day, driving into work, someone pulls in front of me with a bike rack with the name Thule on it. First two times I'd ever seen this word. Seems to be a message that Thule may indeed be the right place to pursue my work. This one falls under the category of very long odds against chance. Anyway, I'll be particularly vigilant about opportunities in Thule.

    I got a sign yesterday, from my best friend who passed over Sunday. Silly as it sounds, I had asked for a song from a singer we both love, and have gone to concerts to see. I didn't really expect anything so quickly, but I was at lunch browsing videos on YouTube for our singer, when one in particular caught my eye. I decided to go ahead and watch it. It was from a concert we had been to together. As I was watching, and listening, something passed by quickly on the video. A face. It was Me. And HER. I had to stop the video and rewind, pause, and there we were. No more than one row from whomever was filming us. She and I together at the concert, and I never knew this video existed... WOW...

    My daughter is sending big white feathers. Also songs. One of the songs explained that what she was doing on earth was not her. She died of an overdose and the song brought tears to all of our eyes.

    I love these signs. Love them so, because it is our loved ones trying to connect with us to let us know they are doing well! The loving connection never stops! :)
    It is the lifeline out of the deep pit of grief! I continue to journal my signs and dreams, even after 5 years. :)

    I have received many signs in the form of songs, bumper stickers, license plates, specific animals, etc. The most amazing one for me was when I asked someone who passed to send me a pink rose. About a week or so later, I found a fabric pink rose laying on the ground underneath a park bench I was about to sit down at! The experience gave me chills and filled me with great joy. :)

    Just recently I drew a spirit portrait for a friend... she later told me that the eyes are the eyes she sees when she connects to her beloved in spirit and the whole portrait is the essence of him. I have never met her or him in physical form, but I trusted in my spirit artists and was rewarded. :) Humbling.

    I went for a long hike yesterday in the mountains. At one point, I decided to dedicate the hike to asking my spirit guide why my son had to be taken. After 20 minutes of nothing, I got choked up. At that point, I stopped to look at some birds (Virginia's Warblers), which supposedly are shy, even for birds. One flittered around from limb to limb, and hopped within 3 and a half feet of me as he looked me over. He stayed there for about 10 seconds before flying away. I have never experienced a wild bird get so close as that, and I attribute this as a sign from my son.

    Last October we have lost our dearly beloved great grandmother, it was hard considering we nursed her through her final days until she left this world peacefully and painlessly. After the funeral Kelly was going to bed and she woke up in the middle of the night and looked at the wall next to the bed, she saw her great grandmother laying right next to her and she said "Don't worry I'm fine now" Smiling, then she disappeared. Was Kelly in a dream like state or was this a sign from her great grandmother? Very surreal experience for her!

    From what I've learned it's often in this dream-like or hypnogogic state that the mind is in the best condition to receive messages from the other side.

    When I was by my platonic soulmate's side in hospital when he was making his transition I told him that his dad would be there and I felt him relax. Some days later when I was arranging his funeral (he had no family), I was playing various songs looking for the best one to be played and while I was playing Fare Thee Well by our favourite singer Kate Rusby the speaker sound faded and then boomed right out for the words "THE OLD MAN'S HERE AND HE'S FINE".

    I took that to be a sign that his old man was there and all is well.
    Have to add that I was overdoing things a bit and was up until very early going through different songs and after leaving the room and then returning everything turned off. There was no reason for it to have done that, it wasn't updating itself and I didn't pull any wiring out. I think he was telling me it was time I rested.

    I'm new here, but I think I'm in the right place.
    Last month, I lost my wife of 50 years. It has been pretty rugged since, as she and I were very close. Last week, I woke up feeling the bed being shaken lightly. I felt the same thing the next morning, but no more since. I'm wondering if it was her, and if so, what was she trying to tell me. We are Catholic, and I know she was "ready" to go, but, I still can't figure out what she was trying to tell me.

    Are you saying the shaking of the bed is what woke you up, or did the bed shake after you woke up? Can you think of any natural causes as, for example, tremors (earthquake activity)? Do you have any sleep disorder that you know of? I apologize if this sounds like a game of 20 questions, but I always check for "ordinary" explanations first. If it was your wife, perhaps this was her way to let you know she dropped by to see you; perhaps she woke you up to warn you of something? (as, for instance, in case you had a period of apnea, or something of that nature).
    I hope you will receive more signs from her, to let you know she is well; but I am sorry for your loss. I have been married over 35 years and I don't know what I'd do and how I'd feel if I lost my husband after all these years together. You had 50 years together and though she was "ready" to go, it still must have been tough on you.
    Blessings, Smitty75, and welcome to the forum.:)

    Welcome, Smitty, and I'm very sorry for your loss. Although she was ready to go, I'm sure it's hard to be separated from her after so many years together. Even for fairly independent people, there is so much routine, decision making and your need for intimacy that is wrapped up in one's marriage. I hope you have friends or family that will be there for you in the months ahead.

    I think the significance of a particular sign must be "in the eye of the beholder." At least, I'm sure she wanted you to know she is still with you.

    Hi, I'm new here, my mom passed away this year at the end of March. During the night between mother's day and her birthday I've had a dream in which we were sitting at a table in a room (unfortunately I don't remember details about the room) talking in the same way we used to when she was alive, only I knew that she wasn't. She said to me "I came because I've seen that you're not feeling well and you're worried but you don't have to, you have to stay calm". I was puzzled that she could be there with me so I asked her " you can come like this without a problem?" and she responded "Sure I can". The strange thing is that I wasn't sad nor I was begging her to remain with me instead I asked her "So the things I'm reading about afterlife are true?" she said "Pretty much so". I don't really remember any more than that. Do you think it could be a visit?

    Personally, I believe it was a visit, I've had similar ones, where I received additional info. that I could NOT have known but was later verified. These types of "dreams" are unlike others and for me, they often take place in a room. Funny thing is, the room is usually white, and though I can tell it is a room, it does seem to have no boundaries (like walls, that is). Sometimes in what I call my "visitation dreams", I see some type of barrier between me and those who had died. For example, nearly a year after my mother died, I saw her in a dream; she was telling me that she was doing alright and that I should not worry about her because she was fine. Looked like she was standing behind some sort of window ledge, but there was no building or window present; it's as if I was looking at a blue sky with patches of fog, and here was this "window ledge" and my mother behind it. It was a very clear dream, as all my visitation dreams are. :)

    Hi Dreamcatcher,
    Welcome to the forums. :) I feel it was a visitation type dream. They will say dreams that are vivid and real to us can be "astral travel" dreams. These dreams definitely can be communication type dreams and we usually remember them well. I have had dreams like you describe and you "feel " like you were truly just with them! Cool experiences for sure! Ravensgate describes a good example as well.
    Mikey defines the "astral " as the "communication dimension" between the realms!

    Sorry, it took me so long to respond, anyway thanks for your replies!:eek:

    You know I think this was the reason why I don't rembember any details about the place I was in, I feel like I know it was a room, but in fact it didn't really look like a room, at least not one of the kind we have here on Earth :D

    Since my mom was the first person close to me that passed away (my grandparents died when I was really young and I don't remember any of them) it was the first time I experienced something like this and I wasn't sure. Again thank you and Mikey for the astral travel explanation, I'm kinda new to all of this :)

    I know this is an older thread, but thought I'd share this here anyway. The special person I lost was my former fiance, and this was back in 1972. First love, "the one that got away", that all fits. Anyway, I've been getting signs for the last three years from her. She passed in 1989, so I don't know about the whole timing thing. She first came in a dream, though I don't remember the dream specifically, the impression has lasted and grows stronger. I know she is looking out for me. So when I researched and found out she was gone, I was saddened but not surprised, almost like she had told me in the dream and I just had to verify it. For the last couple years I keep getting this impression of yellow roses over and over. So I finally had the chance to visit her grave site (I live a very long way from her), and was treated to a headstone framed in delicate roses. Sure everybody likes flowers, but the impression she gave me and the need for me to actually see her grave, it works for me. She was quite the character, so I see her saying to herself, ok, roses, check, he got that one.

    What a lovely story, dear Greystone! Where she is now there is no time, and only love remains. You have the bliss of knowing that now your first love is joyously in your life forevermore!

    I hope it's ok if I add my experience. It ties in to my first post about someone I have a connection with through the afterlife (I never knew him here personally, but I knew about him before his passing). I've been skeptical of how I feel and what messages I receive, and I asked for evidence. I think I got it. :)

    I was driven to search online. Within the span of about two minutes I located information about a book that was written by an author with the same name as my "friend." The name of the book shares the name of a play that my "friend" performed in when he was alive here. Another book by the same author has a publication date that matches my birthday.

    Now perhaps these hints are all too small to be considered significant, just little coincidences to be ignored. But I know how our friends in the afterlife line things up for us when we need to see them clearly. So I like to think I was given the evidence I asked for. They lined up too perfectly to be ignored. They were significant to me and me alone. And like I said, I found this information in about two minutes. It's not like I needed to search online for hours. I went right to where I needed to be.

    Hi LiaAc,
    Thank you for posting this! Thank you for joining us! :) It is amazing to me how things can just fall into place and we get the answers we need. "Ask and you shall receive" does happen! There is so much of this that occurs, that for me, it is so obvious this is beyond coincidence! It happens everywhere, all over the world! Love it! :D

    I had an older brother who hated me before he passed over, and he was very abusive and intrusive. A long story. Anyway, he showed several signs of communication to me from the afterlife, although he was the last person I would expect to do this. A medium friend thinks that he is trying to say he is sorry for the way he treated me while he was in the physical. I don't know, I'm open-minded, it's possible we might change that much on the other side of life. A list of signs:

    A medium, during a seance, said that a man with ginger hair said he was appearing for 'normy', and she felt like she was playing drums. This fitted my brother exactly.

    Another medium friend who I sat with described an appearance on my face by overshadowing of someone who I felt might be my brother, and when I showed her a photo of him she was convinced it was just like him. She knew nothing about my brother.

    A physical medium at her workshop then found she had photographed an 'extra' during spirit photography experiments, and it was a close likeness to my deceased brother.

    The same physical medium a bit later ran another workshop which I attended. Like the other twelve attendees, I took my turn for transfiguration experiments in the cabinet which was lit with red electric light, during the daytime, so we could see what was going on. There was no blackout, just drawn curtains. Briefly, the attendees saw the cabinet move in response to questions about who Spirit wanted to communicate with, and eventually my sister who was present was identified this way.She asked if it was our brother, the reply was yes, are you happy where you are, answer was yes. As this happened , I had felt very dreamy in the cabinet, and everybody could see my face was changing, a large lump on my face which shouldn't have been there. A photo was taken which I have, as well as the 'spirit extra' which I mentioned earlier.

    These signs caused a lot of questions in my mind. I had been told that like attracts like, loved ones come close etc etc, but this did not fit. I had not thought of him, did not want him to come, and hoped I would never see him again in the spirit world when I passed over. However, it was the best personal evidence of survival I had ever received, which was backed up by several messages from him over the years from platform mediums. What else could have caused those phenomena except by Spirit means? It was totally unexpected and he was not in my mind at all in any of the cases.

    This is a wonderful story, Normy! Yes, once we graduate we are the same people we were before but our perspective does seem to change considerably. When your brother had his life review he became aware of how he had affected you and others, and it isn't surprising that he wants to make amends. Please send him love, dear friend, and forgive him completely from your whole heart, for your own sake. What a wonderful gift he is giving you!

    Thank you Roberta; what you said is similar to others who I told about these events. The spirit world hits me round the head many times before I lose my scepticism! :) Everyone tells me to forgive him, and I have many times in my thoughts, but do I really mean it? It is hard to send love those you dislike intensely; I am working on this but not there yet. Unless he's changed a lot, I still would not like him. However, as you say, he has given me a wonderful gift which I have thanked him for.
  30. That is a very interesting experience, Normy. I think people who are abusive to others harbor much self-doubt and insecurity which they inflict on others. They are projecting their angry feelings as a way of making themselves feel better but it never works. There is almost always intense guilt afterwards. I'm sure your brother is very sorry for the way he treated you. Maybe he was just very hurt and bitter inside and didn't know how to overcome it. I know we are all guilty of doing things we felt we shouldn't have done and feel bad afterwards. It's funny-I'm trying to work on forgiveness and it seems that as I forgive others I must forgive myself in equal measure. It's somehow tied together. Even though I do not feel like forgiving myself in all cases, I try to remember that it's the best I can do at the time with the emotional tools I had at the time. Maybe your brother understands how important your relationship to him was now that he is on the other side, and he is trying to make amends.
