Since 1998, during my grief support work, I have observed time and again the remarkable healing affects that take place when the bereaved receive a personal afterlife sign from their departed loved ones. Many who were deeply grieving and in a very dark place would later confide in me that the only reason they did not follow through on their thoughts of suicide was because they had received an afterlife sign.
Types of Signs
Some of these “signs” may be in the form of: happy and vivid dreams where you get to see, talk or hug them again; being surrounded by a strong aroma associated with your loved one; a special song connected to your loved one suddenly comes on just as you walk into a room or turn on the radio; the gentle touch of someone stroking your hair; hearing your name being called when you are alone in a room; a vision of the loved one; or a butterfly or bird that acts uncharacteristically like your own personal pet.
Who Receives Signs?
Millions of people of all faiths, even atheists and agnostics, have reported receiving a comforting sign or contact from a departed loved one.
Bernie Siegel, M.D. in Love, Medicine & Miracles, says he has experienced a number of after-death communications with patients who passed on. He would be out jogging, and he’d hear a voice say good-bye. He would come home and tell his wife that so-and-so had just died. An hour later he would get a call from the family telling him just that.
Dr. Lisa Miller, psychotherapist, and professor of psychology at Columbia University Teacher’s College, reports that in India, China, and Mexico, being contacted by one’s departed grandparents is something to be welcomed. Our ancestors being in touch with us is not only welcomed, it’s crucial.
Some celebrities who have reported having personal afterlife contacts and who have been courageous enough to publicly share their experiences are: the popular race car driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. who believes his deceased father Dale Earnhardt Sr. saved his life by physically pulling him out of a burning car.
Beatle member Paul McCartney believes the spirit of his wife Linda frequently uses a white squirrel to be with him when he spends time in the woods. Michelle Williams of Dawson’s Creek fame says that her ex-fiancé Heath Leger has appeared to her on several occasions, and that he has apologized to her for not helping her to raise their daughter.
From my own personal experiences and those of my clients, many times these comforting, unexplained, spiritual experiences will happen as a result of prayer to God. Often times these afterlife contacts will occur on a special occasion, such as a holiday, birthday, anniversary, graduation, wedding, and birth of a child. Thus, the bereaved will have the added comfort of knowing that their loved one is there celebrating the joyful occasion too.
How To Get an Afterlife Sign
My professional and personal advice for those longing for an afterlife sign is two-fold. First pray to God to be blessed with a contact, and then state something specific to your loved one that you would recognize as a sign from them, e.g. a butterfly. That way when you receive your specific, requested sign, you will have the knowingness that your prayer has been answered and that your loved one is okay. From my grief work with the bereaved, these steps have proven to be extremely effective and have healed thousands of broken hearts over the years.
Benefits of Afterlife Signs
Receiving an afterlife sign can help to reassure those who are wondering if their loved one can still see and hear them. They bring the validating comfort that their loved one is around them in a spiritual way. Afterlife contacts can feel like a warm and soothing balm to the aching heart and therefore help tremendously in the healing process. They have the benefit of bringing the peace of bolstering one’s faith that we live on after death, and that our loved ones will be waiting for us when we too pass over.
May God bless you with many comforting afterlife contacts and signs.Tags: after-death communication, afterlife, apparitions, Duminiak, faith, God, grief recovery, healing, heaven, signs, spirituality, visions
I am a firm believer in signs. My son who died last July loved Eagles in my time of prayer I’ve had at different times been blessed by Two close encounters with Bald Eagles. It was so unreal the feeling of joy and sadness. Also smells of him around me. Dreams that are comforting. My wife and daughter also have had encounters in dreams. My son was a great young man ,23 years old a very fine young man. His truck went off a steep mountain road and rolled and died of a head drama. A parents worst nightmare came true that night. Life will never be the same.
I just lost my 14 year old daughter, my only child, 2 weeks ago. She died of complications to diabetes type 1. I have tremendous pain and guilt. Has your pain gotten better? Have you received any signs personally? A few other family members have received some signs, but I have not. If I could just get “it’s okay daddy” – It would help me immensely.
Dear Richard, I am so very, very sorry about your dear daughter. Yes I have personally received many afterlife signs. But when someone is in deep grief, it is not unusual to not notice the “signs” we are receiving from our loved ones. So in the meantime, that is why your daughter is coming to other people who will notice and claim those signs and tell you about it. Comforting afterlife signs is a way of our loved ones letting us know that they are okay and are in Heaven!!! Your daughter wants you to know that she is okay, so while it is hard for you to notice her signs, she is letting you know through others. Please also feel free to come to my facebook group where we pray for others to get a comforting afterlife sign. It is called After Death Communication and Prayer Wave. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Afterdeathcommunicationsprayerwave/ May God bless you. Christine Duminiak

Please feel free to also share your experiences with my facebook group, After Death Communication and Prayer Wave. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Afterdeathcommunicationsprayerwave/ We pray for others to get a comforting afterlife sign. There are so many other grieving parents that could use the hope of receiving an afterlife sign. God bless you. Christine Duminiak
It is only 5 weeks since I lost you my lovely man and I still suffer every day. It was an awful shock for everyone. I hope you didn’t know or feel any pain or fear. I miss you so much and mourn every day over the plans that we had made but can never happen now. I don’t know where you are or what happens but I hope you are where all good people go. You were a believer but I don’t know what I believe. We loved each other so much that I know that love will outlast everything if that is possible. I would really like to believe we will meet again someday. so I will try to change my attitude to faith. I hope your faith helps you and I might find peace or faith to help me too.
My mother passed a year ago, about three months later I had a very vivid dream of her telling me she was happy. The next day I called my niece I started to tell her about my dream when she told me she had, had a dream that same night about her Grandmother slightly different scenario but basically that she was happy and content. I called my sister to ask if she had any dreams last night about anything in particular she said yes she had dreamt of mum and she was happy in her dream I told her about my dream with the same message and told her about our niece. I posted a message on our family group that I had dreamt of mum I did not give away the context of the dream, another niece posted she had also dreamt of her grandmother being with her previous husband and that she was happy. Four of us had dreams the same night about her, they all had slightly different scenarios in the dream but we all received the message she was happy.
Here is the extra thing I have a metabolic syndrome and very very rarely recall any of my dreams and if I do I forget them, this dream was so clear I could remember every detail and I still carry that dream in my memory.
My son passed away 3 years ago from head trauma after slipping and hitting his head. He was an organ donor and gave all his organs to quite of few recipients. The following year, I attended the transplant organizations celebration to honor the organ donors and was given an ornamental knot of blown glass with the green organ transplant colors. I kept it by me work desk and then after I retired early this year, I brought it home. 2 months ago, I had it in the pocket of my jeans and could not locate it after that. I wanted to put it near my computer at home and looked through all my jeans and every place else to no avail. Last night, I was in bed and thinking about my son, asking God to be there for him and I hoped that I never did anything to ever make him question my love. Today, I was cleaning out my dresser drawer and pulled out a small box card from my son from years ago wishing me happy Mother’s Day, sending me his love. Then I went to finish a load of laundry in the front loading washer and saw the knotted glass in the front rubber seal groove of the door. There had be no load noise of a hard object banging around in the drum and I had not washed any jeans, only some pieces of light underwear. The glass knot was actually wedged in the groove so I had to really pull it out. I have also had a lot of dragonflies that fly around my yard, even in front of my car stopped at an intersection which always puts me at peace. This summer, one dragonfly flew closer and I asked if that was him. The next it flew under our covered patio d around my head. So I believe he had been reaching out to me with a definite sign today.
