    I'm still in shock. I'm not crazy, right?

    Thank you, Roberta. It's amazing. I wasn't even expecting something right then. I was asking him to in a general sense. ♡

    Thank you, Bluebird. My skeptical mind wants to question it. It says that the person who has his number probably called me back from when I called over a week prior ect. However, the odds of it happening right when I was talking to him and right after I asked him if the other two weird things that happened on my phone were him to please send another sign through the phone are incredibly low. The fact that it rang once is interesting too.

    I'd say the chances of that happening are more like 1 to 7.5 x 10^18, way too coincidental to be just chance.

    Not sure if these were signs.. But yesterday, a computer mouse seemed to have jumped off the surface it was on. And just a while ago, the drying leaves on a Zamia plant on this same surface seemed to quiver very evidently 3 times. There were no obvious draughts. This, from an open minded skeptic.

    That is really odd, was the mouse close to the edge of the desk, and how far did it travel?

    Honestly... I don't know, that's why I said that it "seemed" to jump off the surface. I don't think it was particularly close to the edge however. And even if it was somewhat close, i dont think it should have spontaneously fallen off. A mouse is not a spherical object that may easily roll over. This happened during a family event commemorating my dear, recently deceased wife whom I miss so much.

    Hi Everyone! I am new to forums and to this forum in particular. Please forgive me if I am doing something wrong. I have had communication since I was about eight years old that I can remember. I have had so many types of communication from the claires...to empath, pendulum, awake dreams, tarot and so on. I get messages for total strangers and from my relatives, pets, friends and strangers alike. I can't invoke it and turn it on or off. I have also used a scanning radio and had complete and unquestionable messages from my dad. I lost my loving husband 12 years ago and had never had a clear communication from him. I know he has been around me and have seen the clocks with doubles and butterflies and such and felt him, but no "Messages", other than, "Hey! I am still here" in signs...

    Last evening I was really upset and feeling very lonely, (longing for my husband to hold my hand and be at my bedside). I am having surgery in a couple of weeks and I am afraid I will not make it through. I was thinking about how my children (grown), will no longer have a mother or father. I went to sleep late and woke up after a dream of my husband. I asked my spirit guides to let me return to sleep so I could ask him questions. I did. I was amazed! I got some of the answers but again, I woke up. So I laid in bed and closed my eyes and knew I was still awake but continued to ask him questions through thoughts; the way I communicate with others. I was so excited that I laid there talking to him in soul-communication until I felt him fading away. He stayed with me for a very long time. I let him know I was grateful to finally get a chance to "really" communicate with him, said I loved him and he left. By the way, he told me I will be fine and so will my children and that he was not coming to me to take me home with him anytime soon. That was good to know!!!

    I got out of bed, told my daughter all the details and when I said I wish I could prove it this communication to others somehow, we looked at the clock at the same time and it said 11:11!

    I wondered if anyone else has had such a long departure and then had something like this happen? Like I said, I can't turn it on or off when I get other communications and speak with the departed...just with him. One of my very psychic friends had told me three years ago that he was not ready to communicate yet. That she saw him with his arms crossed in front of him like he couldn't or didn't know how to communicate fully. Does anyone else that can communicate have this happen? It was just puzzling...Why so long?

    Finding others in a similar situation may, but may not, help move you forward over issues that puzzle you.

    There is a simple answer why a discarnate relative, friend or lover does not communicate as one might expect or wish or why they visit for a longer or shorter time if one is privileged to experience such a thing. The answer is that there is no simple answer.

    The most obvious answer for me is that your sensitive friend is the one who's most likely able to learn the answer, someone who (apparently) saw your husband clairvoyantly. Better still a clairvoyant and/or clairvoyant medium, someone who might be able to act as a go-between facilitating communication between him and you. It's not uncommon for a medium not to be able to establish for her/himself a satisfying communication with a loved one departed. Someone else acting for you just might be able to do what you can't.

    But can I ask you this? Why does it matter why it took so long? Or indeed, does it matter at all, especially given that you've had a great deal of contact with him anyway? Presumably you know and accept he'll be around you and your family as much as is practicable for all of you? But the so-called dead have their own lives to lead 'over there' in the etheric world(s). It's not intended they should remain constantly with or around you, with or around any of us incarnates, after their passing. Some even say that wanting them to do so 'holds them back' from what they ought to be doing.

    Life's not like that, or intended to be like that, because if it were then that's what would be happening for us all.

    I guess this is the place to share how my biological Dad got in touch shortly, after he died nearly 35 years ago. It's one of those things that is unforgettable and I remember it so clearly. Growing up, I didn't know him at all, due to my parent's bitter divorce and while my sister always wanted to know him, I was angry at him with the stubborn anger of a hurt child. Plus, I didn't want to be 'disloyal 'to our stepfather.
    I cut him out of my thoughts entirely and so one day when I was 25, a girlfriend who was a bit psychic and sensitive but not a professional, only curious like me, suggested we try a ouija board that she had and hadn't never used, I agreed, even though I'd never used one either and was kinda scared of them because my grandmother said they were nothing to play with.
    I believed in guardian angels and ghosts, but I still wasn't expecting anything to come across, especially anything for me.
    So when we started, it was random gibberish but then it started moving under our fingers in a way that felt purposeful and we each knew wasn't us moving it. Or not just us anyway. She asked was there someone there and it answered "Yes". Then she asked who was the message for. It moved to "S". So we verified aloud asking was it for Sabrina and it moved again to "Yes".

    Then she asked what was the message and it spelled out "Love U". It still gives me a very, strong feeling to think of seeing it do that now, but it's a happy feeling. Back then it was an eerie feeling.
    We kept looking at each other and whispering (like that would keep a spirit from hearing us! lol) "Are you moving it? I'm not moving it, are you?" Then she asked "who is this?" And it spelled out, "Ron". She looked at me and whispered 'who's Ron?' and I was shrugging like, I don't know who Ron is."

    Well, my Dad's name was Ronald. It sounds strange that he never crossed my mind but he didn't. For one thing, I almost never thought of him, having seen him only twice in 25 years for about 10 minutes at a time and for another, I knew that my sister had just come back from visiting him in Jamaica and he was healthy and only 44. Plus, we knew him as Ronny.
    So after he spelled his name, she asked if there was anything else this person wanted to say and it started doing gibberish again, and we suddenly felt really spooked and the energy felt different than when we were getting the clear message from Ron. So we stopped and asked our guardians to ask any undesirables to leave us in peace. But I didn't feel the clear message was bad, I just didn't know who 'Ron' was.

    And I didn't find out he had been murdered, till a couple weeks later, as my sister went to the funeral in Jamaica and since we weren't close at that time, she only called me to let me know he had passed when she got back. She told me what day it happened and even then it took a while longer, for me to figure it out.
    I can't remember the chronology of that part well, but I remember that at some point, it suddenly dawned on me, I mean like a thunderclap!, that Ron could have been Ronny and that the day we did the ouija board, was either the day he was killed or the very, next day.
    But to me, the timing didn't matter because I just knew in my heart, that it was him controlling the ouija board, that afternoon at my friend's home.

    And sad, little soul that I still was, I didn't want to face that my Dad who I'd ignored as a young adult, had gotten in touch with me to let me know he loved me, even if he couldn't be with me in life. So, for years after, even though I believed it was him, I was still mad at him, except now it was for getting himself killed! He was shot in the back by his new girlfriend's jealous ex-lover.
    I also should add, he'd been trying for a while, after I turned 18, to get in touch to have a reunion and I wouldn't meet with him! Maybe as an immature 20 something I thought there would be time, if I even thought of it at all. I have long since, asked his forgiveness and told him I love him too and even though I've never had another sign from him, I believe he knows that. I believe that rifts can be healed, even after death. Even long after.

    Pretty sure my family just received an apport from a very recently deceased family friend - A 27-year old who died of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. A penny appeared out of nowhere, hit the table and rolled off. Me and my brother tested if it could've came from off of the ceiling fan and decided that it's unlikely it would've even hit the table from there. The ceiling fan was also already on, and the apport appeared way after it was turned on. My dad also said it seemed to come from out of thin air. None of us have ever experienced anything like this. Maybe the deceased learned that I knew about this kinda thing and wants me to tell his grieving mother to look for signs.

    Lovely story, Nirvana! Yes, those who have seen apports arrive have sworn that they do simply appear in mid-air and fall. You're fortunate to have seen it happen!

    I hope everyone has a wonderful time at the Afterlife Symposium. I am excited about my genealogy adventure. I bring up both now, because I wanted to share something with you.

    In 2016 I attended a 2 day workshop with Bruce Meon, that was offered after the conference. I highly recommend this for anyone who is interested in testing their psychic abilities.

    I was able to find out definitively that I am an empath. We all were able to experience a retrieval. And I did my first, and currently, last reading.

    Bruce's method was a wonderful way to link into the energy of the universe. And for my first reading I was surprised how accurate I was. I had a headache and found out that the individual had died of brain cancer.

    However, it is my partner's reading that I want to relate to you.

    We were asked to put on a piece of paper the name of a deceased individual that we wanted to be in contact with. Of the twenty or so participates in the workshop, only four of us named our mothers. On the paper was only the name, not the relationship. And the odd thing is that the four of us were paired with each other. I truly think was for a reason.

    My partner was a professional medium. She was quite upset when she found out it was my mother I wanted to hear from, because she had encountered a man.

    Once she started describing her reading, I knew she had met my father. Dad was a joker. He didn't actually do many practical jokes, but when he did they were some doozies! And this was one.

    All the personal information that she provided left no doubt that this was my father.

    Now the reason, I believe this happen is as follows.

    First, my mother disliked her name - hate would be too strong. But with a name of Alva, she was often confused for a man, especially in the mail.

    My father disliked his first name. He disliked his name so much that he legally changed it, but switching his first and middle names. This was a mountain name, Rassie.

    As I started working on my family tree, I discovered something about my father. At the beginning of his life, the census taker refused to climb the mountain on which my father's family lived, so the man recorded inaccurate information obtained from the neighbors. My father was listed twice as Rossie, a girl. ;-)

    I truly believe my parents were having their kicks on the other side!

    Did the "professional medium" give you any information you didn't already know?

    Yes, she relayed an incident between my grandfather and father, that I knew nothing about before the reading.

    My husband passed 10 months ago. I had to relocate to another city afterward for work. I brought very few things with me as I was moving myself. (No one to help.) One thing I brought was a large portrait of my husband. The picture was the last taken of him, two days before his sudden passing. His friends had it blown up to poster size mounted on a cardboard backing and had it on an easel at his service. I brought it into the new house. All I remember was feeling very exhausted as I carried items from the truck to inside. I remember thinking that I had to put that poster someplace safe where my pets would not knock it over or damage it. But I actually have no further recollection and don't have any idea where I put it. Keep in mind, I was pretty much sleep-walking through this time as I was so dazed from his passing and what I had to do to go forward. Bottom line, I put the picture away and did not see it again, nor did I think of it, or even remember bringing it to the new home. (I am still struggling with grief and stress and sleep deprivation.) A couple of weeks ago, on a Saturday morning, I woke up and went into the laundry room to feed the kitties. There was the picture, face up, on the floor, right in the doorway. I have no idea how it got there. I live with only my kitties. Here is the poster photo.

    I will also relate an event that happened after my mother passed in Dec 2009. My mom, whose name was Sybil, was living in an assisted living community with my dad. She was 80 and had many close calls from poor health. However, she was still very vibrant and engaged with friends and activities. She had made a good friend named Katherine, who was older and a retired college professor. They spent a lot of time together and led a weekly meeting with residents to discuss current events. Sadly, Katherine fell and broke her hip. After surgery, she was in a rehab facility for quite a while getting therapy. While she was there, Mother had a heart attack, and after a couple of weeks of heart and respiratory failure in a different hospital, passed away. Several days later, my sister went to visit Katherine to give her the news but Katherine's family asked her not to mention my mom's passing, as Katherine was very frail and they were afraid it would upset her too much. So my sister just went in to say hello, without telling her of my mom. Katherine had a roommate in a semi-private room. The roommate asked my sister, "Who in the heck is Sybil?" My sister asked why she was asking. The roommate said for the past few nights, Katherine had been up late talking to someone named Sybil, having conversations and laughing. The roommate did not see or hear any other person in the room. She was annoyed that Katherine was keeping her awake. Katherine had no recollection of this when my sister asked her about it.

    I lost the love of my life Albert 11 weeks ago. The first week I experienced many sign from him, usually shortly after I requested them. I was very specific - I asked for roses (very significant for us, I have all the roses he gave me including the rose he gave on our first date) and encountered a bouquet of dried roses in the street 30 mins later, or again I asked on our anniversary and 10 minutes later walked into a building with a huge graphic of roses on the window. I asked for a padlock and found one in a drawer the next day, a drawer I had been through the day before and had not seen the padlock. Things like that. Then, they stopped.

    I begged for signs, communication, dreams, anything - and nothing. I was in so much distress because I was really convinced I would be communicating with him immediately, our bond was so, so strong. I talked to a couple of mediums that people referred me to and had a terrible experience with one of them, she was clearly fishing and provided statements that were nothing he would ever say and it was just terrible. And the other was somewhat disappointing because of very general statements (he loves you and says your love will never die, he is happy, he is doing some kind of work with music...) So I was devastated and losing hope.

    Last week, I went out with some of his friends to a dinner. These were Albert's friends whom I have met a few times but don't know so well, so I was a little uncomfortable after a while and just wanted to be home.

    During dinner however, a song that was one of "our songs" came on in the restaurant. It was a song that he sent a video of himself singing to me, that we sang every morning when going skiing all last winter. It's not a contemporary song, so it surprised me a lot to hear it. I acknowledged the song and sent Albert a thank you. Then, walking home in the rain after midnight, there was florist shop that was open (incredibly unusual here in Barcelona) and I peered in. There was a bucket of blue roses, one of the first things I saw. I would not have been walking if not for the rain so would not have seen this. He gave me blue roses once (I have one of them still) and had been asking him to show me a blue rose for weeks, up until about a month ago when I gave up. Well, here they were. I bought one along with a white one and they made up a bouquet for me. I thanked Albert for them.

    Yesterday too some of my electronics went a little crazy - phone talking to me when it was off, a video on my computer screen repeatedly turned on even though I repeatedly put it on pause, my phone screen getting dark and light and freezing then going back to normal. And I have been seeing feathers EVERYWHERE and 5-10 times a day. Not only outside either, I found a tiny white feather on my desk yesterday.

    Last night at another dinner, one of his friends delivered a rose to me midway through. I have it here and can only hope it was Albert who guided his friend to buy it for me.

    I am taking these all as signs and thanking him whenever I see them. I really hope things are changing. I want a dream visitation so very badly. I feel like my life would change completely if I just could have some communication with him.

    What do you think about this? Am I grasping for straws here?

    I think these are too many signs to be a coincidence. What a beautiful blessing. I am so sorry he has departed but he clearly loves you more than ever.

    I received yet another rose tonight. It is interesting that I was asking Albert to show me roses before. Now, I am not only seeing them but receiving them from others now, two nights in a row, plus the blue ones I bought for myself the other night.

    Peanutbritt, I agree - those are too many coincidences to be a coincidence. That sounds like the real deal to me. I hope they continue. That is absolutely terrible about the medium.

    It's been over 15 months and I don't think I have noticed any signs. Every now and then I get a chill, though. The other day I was walking somewhere and thinking about my girlfriend, and I felt a VERY strong chill. I felt it in my back and even my upper arms. Of course I have to wonder, is it her, or me?

    Last night I received THREE roses. This is the third night in a row I have received roses from various people.

    Now, it's not so unusual to be given a rose as in this city there are men who walk through the bars and restaurants all over town selling them. But suddenly I am receiving them or finding them in the particular unusual color that I had been asking for earlier.

    My question now is: why the increase in everything now? What's happening with him or us to facilitate any of this if these are truly signs?

    It has been 11 weeks tomorrow and I am still in the depths of grief. I can only surmise that Albert has learned some skills or was not available before. Or I wasn't ready perhaps. I desperately want communication and I worry if I am still in denial that he is truly gone.

    Found ANOTHER rose today. This is four days in a row for a total of 6 roses!

    It came at a good time, I was on the way to Albert's apartment for one last visit before I handed the keys over to his family. I was very anxious and sad about this. I was leaving the restaurant with a friend I just had lunch with, heading in the direction of his place (a 30minute walk) and looked up in a tree that was on the sidewalk and there was a drying rose draped in the crook of two large branched. This considerably lifted my mood -- I took it as a sign that he is with me and aware of my sadness in the face of what I was about to do.

    Welcome, Peanutbritt! You are receiving lots of wonderful signs - please don't question them, but instead thank him for them (aloud!) and enjoy them for the hugs that they are.

    We cannot know specifically why he seemed to be away for a little time, but people after they have transitioned are as varied in their lives as are people here! He could have been taking a course, traveling with friends, working on getting his house together, or any of a hundred other things; and since people there are not living in time, what seemed like a quick separation to him could have gone on for days from your perspective. Please accept that he is alive and well for certain, and he still loves you, and allow him a little more space now, since for us to keep holding on to our transitioned loved ones emotionally can limit the fun that they are having there. The very fact that you are still in a body means that you have more to do here! So please go back to making the most of this lifetime with peace and love and joy in your heart, and try to grow spiritually as much as you can... make the most of this very precious lifetime!
