People are afraid of death for the same reason as being afraid of the dark, because you have no way of knowing what’s there. The things that always scare people the most are the unknown and unknowable.
Here are the signs that someone you love is about to pass away:
#1 1. You 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!
#2 2. They 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.
#3 3. Your Items Go Missing
We all know the feeling, when you swear you left your keys right by the front door. Or that pair of socks you just had a minute ago has suddenly vanished into thin air. It can be annoying and downright maddening! But don’t get upset, it could just be the spirit of a close family member or friend getting their kicks. They like to joke around too, ya know, think of it as endearing, rather than frustrating.
#4 4. Unusual Thoughts
Feeling like your thoughts have all of a sudden been hijacked? Like that voice inside your head is actually someone else’s? Don’t fret it could just be a spirit friend trying to get your attention. Just take a moment to examine these foreign thoughts. Be open to the messages and notice any relevance to your current life situation.
