1You Smell Them: One of the most common ways our loved ones are felt from beyond the grave is through scent. Our sense of smell is directly connected to our hippocampus, the area of the brain dedicated to memories.
Scents are the strongest in bringing about memory recall as well as in connecting with others. You may smell your grandma’s perfume, grandpa’s pipe tobacco or a friend’s deodorant.
Don’t be scared, just know they are near and looking out for you!
2They Appear In Your Dreams: Another common way spirits try to connect with us is through our dreams. Our subconscious minds are more open and accessible to the spirit realm while we are asleep, making it the perfect time for our deceased loved ones to get in touch with us.
The dream will usually seem more realistic than fictional, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t an important message to be heard.
