What is Afterlife Communication? Is it Real?

Afterlife communication is the act of opening the door to the afterlife and inviting a spirit being to communicate with you; this could be family, friends, or anyone you may have known in life and with who you can create a heart-to-heart connection.

Communication with a loved one in the afterlife is a lifeline that can bring considerable comfort; it is inspiring, healing, and life-transforming.

From the beginning of time, people have experienced after-death communication. Despite significant negative conditioning about death, many cultures sacredly hold the experience of death. The healing process includes friends and family sharing their experiences with spiritual phenomena.

Since I was very young, I would spontaneously leave my body while asleep and walk around our home. Then, I discovered I could fly and walk through walls, and occasionally I’d encounter a spirit being, they looked like ordinary people to me, but I could only see them while in that state. So, I learned early on that there is an entire world that we can’t always see with our physical eyes.

woman on cloudsAfter having a near-death experience in 1995, my senses heightened. I didn’t have to travel at night to experience communication with the afterlife. When I feel the presence of a family member or friend, their presence feels the same. For example, my first husband’s mother, JC, appears with hundreds of cats around her; she was a veterinarian in life and a passionate cat lover. She also appears when I have a pet ready to pass; she arrives a few weeks before as if she is waiting to help them cross over.

So, when my husband passed, I was open to having these experiences. The first time Jon communicated, I was shocked, but I soon learned to expect the unexpected and welcome all messages.

Afterlife communication isn’t anything new, although it’s been hidden and vilified to the point where experiencers will not discuss it for fear of being persecuted. In fact, I attended a support group for widows and was surprised to hear almost 50% of the women had an experience; however, each one added a disclaimer that there was no way they would share their experience with anyone outside of the group. So, as a society, the condemnation is changing with the increase of research, and anecdotal experiences shared online and on social media; there is still a long way to go before we can openly talk about it.

After-death communication fulfills the need to understand where our loved ones are and to know they are safe. Messages such as “I am safe and happy” and “I love you” have the power to heal shattered hearts and traumatized minds.

Those implications are tremendous beyond description. My experience showed me that the death of the body and the brain are not the end of consciousness, and that human experience continues beyond the grave. More important, it continues under the gaze of a God who loves and cares about each one of us and about where the universe itself and all the beings within it are ultimately going.”
~ Eben Alexander

 Three Types of Afterlife Communication

There are three main types of after-death communication; spontaneous, facilitated, and requested.

Spontaneous after-death communication is the most common type of after-death communication; it involves a visitation or contact, although it was not invited or expected.

Afterlife communication comes in many forms with many types of signs and symbols:

  • Dream visitations- lucid or otherwise
  • Receiving signs and symbols
  • Hearing music or songs that were meaningful
  • Unexplained phenomena with lights, appliances, and technology
  • Communication using technology and phones
  • Hearing conversations
  • Seeing flashes of your loved one
  • Seeing lights, orbs, or streams of light
  • Feeling a touch or a breeze.

Facilitated after-death communication is a requested type of after-death communication; however, it is facilitated by a medium or psychic.

Requested visitations occur when the deceased is invited and encouraged to engage and communicate. The experiencer may employ different techniques or technology to facilitate contact.

After-death communication implies that our current societal death model is a myth, but confidence has grown in knowing that our loved ones are not dead; instead, they have transformed and live somewhere in another dimension, time, and space. We may not know exactly where that is but their messages of love, hope, and assurance lead us to believe it’s a safe place.

Signs and Symbols From the Afterlife

Signs and Symbols From the Afterlife


Signs and Symbols from the Afterlife

Signs and symbols are the most common way loved ones in the afterlife communicate with you. Below are common interpretations; however, your loved one may apply a different meaning to a specific symbol.

Apparitions: Seeing a full or partial apparition such as a hand, an outline, orb, or an entire body is rare, but there are reports of this happening.

Astral Travel: Astral travel can feel like a dream if you’re unfamiliar with the subtle differences. For example, deliberately or spontaneously meeting a deceased friend or loved one while dreaming can be a cosmic journey, and you’re actually in the other dimension meeting them.

“I woke up in the middle of the night and was fully awake but had my eyes closed when I was suddenly above Kevin’s bed in the hospital. He flatlined, and nurses prepared him for the shock paddles –I watched the entire event happen when they shocked him and his heart restarted!”.Later that morning, Brenda’s friend called from the hospital to give an update on Kevin’s condition. Unfortunately, he flatlined a couple of hours earlier and had to be shocked with the paddles to revive him. Brenda is still in awe of that experience. ~ Brenda

Birds: Birds are considered messengers from spirit. Different birds offer different types of messages. For example, Red-tail Hawks are messengers from God who fly between heaven and earth.

Doves are particularly significant after death; they bring love, comfort, and peace messages.

Red Cardinals are considered a visit from your loved one and the actual embodiment of the deceased. The visit from a Red Cardinal confirms your beloved is still with you and you’re never alone.

Butterflies: Butterflies are such beautiful messengers. Kids especially love using butterflies to send messages to their parents. The butterfly can represent the transformation your beloved experienced to be free of all pain and suffering.
In some cases, a butterfly will follow a person around or appear more than once. Still, others reported that a butterfly landed on their body and stayed for hours, or the butterfly allowed them to hold it in their hands for long periods.

Sandi was devastated by the loss of her baby at seven months of pregnancy.  After the loss, while home searching her wallet for a receipt, she spotted a beautiful pink butterfly tucked inside. She had never seen the butterfly and her purse was not with her in hospital. She knew it was her baby girl; now, she keeps the butterfly with her to remind her of who she has on the other side.

Car License Plates: Our loved ones can get creative with car license plates; this has become a significant part of my communication with my husband, Jon; one day, I asked my husband to confirm he was responsible for a specific event, the next day a car drove in front of me with plates that said, ‘DATWDBME’ (that would be me).

Clairaudient: Hearing with your internal or external ear. You may hear the voice of your loved one calling your name or hear music or a jingle that was a favorite of your loved one. You may experience a high pitch frequency and ringing in your ears that signal a spirit is in your space.

Clairsentience: Getting a ‘gut feeling’ that an incarnate being is in your presence, experiencing physical sensations such as chills, having a feeling of heaviness or lightness in response to a shift in vibrational density in your energy field, feeling a touch or caress.

Clairvoyant: Clairvoyants may see a vision of the deceased with complete clarity while awake.

Clairaliance and Clairgustance: Experiencing clear smelling and clear tasting together is common. A good example is smelling and tasting the smoke of a cigar simultaneously.

Coins: Another object reported as a sign from a loved one are coins. Coins can be a wink, answer a question, or signify you are treasured. In addition, they can show up as a specific denomination, such as finding dimes every time you step out of your car or appearing in multiples like finding three pennies repeatedly or in particular arrangements. Others have also reported that pennies sometimes fall out of nowhere to land on their heads.

Dragonflies: Dragonflies are synonymous with freedom after death. The message from a dragonfly typically means your loved one is embarking on a spiritual journey and liberation.

Dreams: Dreams are an incredible opportunity for the deceased to visit their loved ones and deliver messages. In the dream state, our conscious mind sleeps; therefore, there isn’t any interference. Secondly, we may travel to other dimensions to meet. Having long discussions is not uncommon in the dream state; we can ask questions and get great information.

There are also instances of our loved one visiting a family member or close friend in the dream state to get a message to us; this would happen if emotions are high and they can’t reach us.

Rob had been unconscious in the hospital for weeks. Unfortunately, his prognosis was not promising, although family and friends clung to hope. Rob and Shane and their families were very close; they gathered together often and traveled together. One night Shane had a dream he’ll never forget –– In my dream, I was having a conversation with Rob, I don’t know where we were, but I was damn happy to see him. I shouted, “dude, you need to get back here,” He said, “don’t worry, man, it’s just a blink. Everyone will be here in a blink.”
Annoyed, I replied, “well, if it’s just a blink, get yourself back here. Your family needs you”!
He then said, “just remember medley and Pirates of the Caribbean.” and left. So that’s it, he left me hanging!”
Rob passed away three days later.

Later, Shane’s grandson visited one morning when he started humming The Pirates of the Caribbean medley! Then a week later, his wife opened an online news report about The Pirates of the Caribbean being closed because it’s broken. But then, weeks later, Shane was taking his family on a planned trip to Disneyland and felt compelled to invite Rob’s wife, Irene, and family. They were all having a good time when they decided to ride the Pirates of the Caribbean; when suddenly Irene had heartbreak in her eyes and said, “the Pirates of the Caribbean was Rob and I’s favorite ride.”

Electronic Manipulation: Pure energy is our loved one’s current state. Energy easily influences energy; hence electronic manipulation is one of the most experienced after-death communication phenomena. For instance, they might flicker the lights, blow out some bulbs, mess with the radio or the TV. These are all indications of their presence.

Experiencing lights flashing, dimming, or turning on and off is a common sign they are present. Computers turn on or play a video or music loudly, TV, appliances, or fire alarms turn on and off; these are all examples of how the deceased will communicate with us by manipulating electronics.

Feathers: This is a common symbolic sign sent by departed loved ones shortly after entering the Spirit realm. Feathers are also synonymous with Angels, a popular saying, “When a feather appears, an angel is near,” because feathers convey a message of freedom, love, and peace.

Human Messengers: Your loved ones can influence people to do or say things to help them convey a message to you. For example, you may be in a grocery store on the day of your late mothers’ birthday to buy her a birthday cake when a store clerk randomly hands you a Calalily; oddly enough, Calalillys is your mother’s favorite flower.

Lucid Dreaming: Lucid dreaming is similar to a vivid dream but different in that you are not fully asleep with a lucid dream. Lucid dreaming is the state in between awake and asleep. Seeing, hearing, or feeling the presence of the dead is not uncommon in this state. You may also experience a touch, hear your name called, feel the presence of weight on your bed.

“I woke up the morning after my step-father died but fell back into a light sleep. I was awake in my dream, but asleep, but I felt completely awake when he appeared!
He walked into my room and was in the most peaceful state I’ve ever seen; he gently grabbed my hand, and I felt an immense love from him. I could feel the warmth and grip of his hand, then my hand slowly slipped out of his, and he was gone. I snapped out of my sleep and realized I must have been dreaming, but It was so real; I felt everything as if I was awake.” ~Chelsea

Music: Music is a favorite because our loved ones can send various messages with lyrics and music.
You may be having a bad day when suddenly you hear the song you danced to at your wedding or a song you often sign together.

Our loved ones will speak to you by playing a song that had meaning for both of you when you were together.

Numbers: Numbers can bring tremendous meaning. Guides and angels often use numbers to send messages. You may receive a number sequence of your loved ones’ birthday, anniversary, or a date of significance that only you would know. Numbers can appear as flight numbers, license plates, billboards, receipts, or phone numbers. The possibilities are endless with numbers, and there are several online databases to search number sequences and their significance.

Physical Manipulation: Experiencing physical items moving from one spot to another can either bring you joy or make you feel like you’re losing your mind. But, again, their innovation and delivery always impress me. For example, they can cause wind chimes to move without wind, or my favorite is when they make balloons follow you. These are all examples of physical manipulation by the deceased.

Smelling a fragrance: There are many reports of smelling the roses, cigars, or a favorite scent of their loved ones.

“My husband loved the men’s version of Obsession cologne, but the version from the 1980s. I can smell it sometimes at night, especially if I wake up in the middle of the night. I know he’s here’s with me when I can smell his favorite cologne.”. ~ Mary

Technology Messaging: Receiving messages via text or a messenger platform is exciting and unsettling, but from my own experience, they can be very clever in their delivery. For example, I received a random text from a stranger on my husband’s birthday in 2015. The text said, ‘this is my favorite song,’ it was a Youtube link, so I clicked on it; surprisingly, it was a favorite song of Jon and me! I replied to the text to ask who sent the message but never received a response, so it’s still a mystery.

Myths about Death and Afterlife Communication

Myths about Death and Afterlife Communication


Seven Myths About Death

and the Afterlife

Decades of conditioning to vilify death have nurtured a pool of poison that destroys the human spirit. If you believe your loved one is buried and becomes dust in the wind, you will feel helpless and hopeless when death knocks at your door. So, here are seven myths about death and afterlife communication to lay to rest.

Myth 1: When a person dies, they cease to exist.

On the contrary, science now proves that we are not our brains or bodies. Instead, our essence resides outside of physicality; the spirit still exists when our body ceases to exist. Secondly, there are millions of after-death communication stories where the deceased are excited to learn they’re still alive and eager to communicate with their family.

Myth 2: A loved one is not available for communication for a year after death.

I’ve seen this multiple times on question boards and groups. It is an excellent example of how human earthly ideas applied to God or the afterlife aren’t relevant. The concept of time is a human construct assigned to measure the flow of change. There is no change in the afterlife because everything exists in the NOW. Therefore, time is not a thing where they are.

Myth 3: You are not a medium, or you’re not gifted so you can’t talk to the dead.

Every person is intuitive. The only difference is some people are more open than others; cultural conditioning, personal experiences, family openness, health, diet, and many other factors can contribute to how much access one has to their intuition. Furthermore, with an understanding of the process, practice and dedication, anyone can acquire strong intuition.

Myth 4: God takes them away into heaven, and they’re not available.

There are thousands of reports of family members dying and frantic that they can’t reach anyone here to tell them they are OK. When they receive validation, they won’t hesitate to communicate often.

Myth 5: Death is always painful.

There are thousands of reports from the afterlife to the contrary. They are happy, peaceful, and excited that their loved ones validate their communication.

Myth 6: After-death communication is evil, or you’re communicating with demons.

Let’s break this idea down and look at it logically. Evil cannot connect to Source/God for the life force energy that sustains life. Therefore, they only survive by stealing low-frequency energy from humans. To do this, they first create situations to stir up hatred, anger, fear, depression, or despair; as a result, when we experience those emotions, our bodies generate enormous amounts of negative energy that swirl around us. Then evil comes along and attaches to live off the energy, like a parasitic tick.

But, 99% of people who experience after-death communication, whether spontaneous, facilitated, or requested, report feeling better, relieved, and at peace; it helps them process grief and brings comfort knowing their loved one is safe and happy. So, the emotions they experience are positive, producing positive energy, not negative, so this wouldn’t serve evil. It will deter them, though.

Myth 7: Can I reach someone who is in hell?

Hell is a hot topic that requires an entire book to debate. Nevertheless, to answer this question, let’s look at it as a state of mind rather than a place.

We die, shed the body, and then transform into pure energy. But, we still have the energy signatures of all of our experiences, which could include killing someone. In this case, during the life review, we experience the killing from the victim’s point of view to learn and transmute the experience. Reports from the deceased who have experienced this are always available to communicate, so they are not in a place of hell the way religions define hell. Instead, they are working on understanding and transmuting the experience for the greater good; when they do, they reach higher levels of awareness in the afterlife.
Now, demons and parasites are entirely different and may dwell in other locations; however, they still have a domain. Therefore, if our frequency is low enough, we can also communicate with them. Hence the reason love is the primary energy while engaging in after-death communication, the lower frequency beings cannot get near the frequency of love.
