Communication with Deceased Loved Ones
By Tara Sutphen
“Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality.”—Emily Dickinson
After death your loved one wants to talk to you. It’s hard to keep in touch with someone leaving this world for the next. It’s much easier for them to see and hear you then the other way around. but we must try, if not for us, for them.
We all have a heart, and attached to all its implications. You may just love, and unexplainably be devoted to a person, making an endearing emotion simple without judgements. Love is not just a gift, its an expansion. It’s something we take into our heart, mind and soul. Emotions are not rational, we don’t know why we have an affinity with some people and in some cases specific people can be our whole world.
When we are born, there is a bond between parents and babies, among siblings, students, friends, co-workers and revelers. This affiliation however slight, has meaning for us. We are shaped by the understanding of others. We don’t know where we come from, but we all know we will go there again. Through our spiritual connection there is a pre-birth place, somewhere beyond the stars.
We have a strange amnesia about love. We can have expectations along with sordid emotions. Not everyone loves the same. When our mindset allows us to just “be”, we come into unconditional attachment. Everyone has their journey, and it doesn’t always coincide with ours. Sometimes we think we’re not linked to the people around us while we’re alive. We can feel lonely or torn by the personalities of others. Mistakes can be made even if you love someone. You may not necessarily like what they do or which path they have taken. The more we practice having a broader view of those we care about, the easier our emotions will be to reconcile.
After all we want the very best for our loved ones. You may feel you have lost what you once had. We want to stay connected to those who enrich our feelings. We want to keep them close. Love is a state of being and not always conditional. It’s best to let go of what we feel is uncontrollable. Knowing there is another existence somewhere else, how can we keep in touch? Just look at how much we’re spending on smartphones, approximately $355 Billion. It’s evident how much humans devote to communicating with each other. We need contact, and try our best to stay connected.
When I had my NDE’s (near death experiences) as a child, I realized my consciousness went with me. I knew exactly who I was and what had happened. As I was talking to these two angelic women, I knew I would experience pain of the body if I went back. I asked them if I could go on to the bright light, but they said “no, I would have to go back because I had a life to live on earth”. They told me of many things that I could expect in my future, especially the love of my children and how important my work would be. As I turned around, I reconnected to the world knowing it is filled with curious things. Because of these experiences, I have inner-knowledge of a pathway to the other side and speaking to the ones we’ve lost.
What I’ve Observed:
When a loved one crosses, they want to say goodbye.
When a person crosses over, first you will a visitation dream. They want to say goodbye. They can come to you many times in their new state of being, it’s important to know they are trying to talk to you. If you can stay away from sleeping pills, anti-depressants or too much caffeine you have to stay aware even in your sleep. Write down what happens upon awakening.
How to Observe:
Be open to what you’re about to receive. It could be a smile, a hug or a kiss. They may tell you what they most love about you and how much you mean to them. They may have apologies, share their own regrets, or simply say a formal goodbye. When coming through the veil, you may experience seeing them bathed in a beautiful bright light. It may feel like a dream.
You can ask in a prayer for your guardian angel and sentinels to help connect you with your loved one. Have a journal open by the side of the bed. Include a short note to your loved one.
Ways your Loved one will try to communicate:
- Dream Visiting
- Lucid Dreams
- Electrical fluctuations
- Objects move
- Money, Feather’s or objects at your feet or where you walk
- Feeling their presence strongly
- Smelling them or familiar smells
- Hear their voice
- See them out of your periphery vision
- See people who look like them
- Shamanic signs (Animals, Birds, trees, flowers, the wind, clouds)
- Messages (song lyrics, quotes, or they’re words suddenly come to mind)
- Day Dream Visions
Love is a sentiment we all carry with our consciousness. Love is Eternal. Remember… the Power of Love.
