How Spirits Communicate

There is a distinct difference between a ghost and a spirit. I believe Ghosts are tied to the place where they met a tragic or sudden death, or may just love their home so much that they refuse to leave. They have “unfinished business” so to speak. A spirit is able to move from one dimension to another and can return to us at free will. Often, it is a genuine tie to a loved one. They want them to know the deceased relative or friend is OK. 

I have seen a few ghosts, however, they never spoke or acknowledged my presence. They were seen with my peripheral vision. I never saw their faces, but I could tell you exactly what they were doing and their attire. One elderly man, and his cat, were a part of my daily life from the age of 12 until I moved to Florida in 1987. He was always going out of the room as I was coming in. He would startle me, but never frighten me.

Spirits Communicate in Different Ways

I have way more luck with spirit communication and actual conversations through “dream form,” which I find most common. You know when you are dreaming and when you are having a “visit.” When these happen, you can remember every detail for the rest of your life. 

When my grandfather passed, I took it hard. I had loved and adored him since the day I was born. After his death, I would wake up sobbing in the middle of the night. Shortly after that night, he paid me a couple visits in my dreams. The first time, he was standing in front of me. I asked him, “Is it really you?” He replied yes. I asked him if I could hug him, again he said yes. I asked him, with my arms still around his waist, if I could smell him (as he had a distinct grandpa smell), he laughed and said yes. I woke up feeling so peaceful.

He came one more time. As the visit was occurring, I realized I was seeing a true apparition, where the spirit takes human form right in front of you. Grandpa was in a hurry, and I could tell he planned to do the talking and I was the listener. It was June 1, 2007 at 1 a.m. That was the last time I saw my Grandpa. I think he knew I was going to be OK.

Music is another way spirits can communicate. When I am sad and missing my Mom, a song magically comes on the radio that was our song – “Puff the Magic Dragon.”

Seeing or feeling a spirit is special – no matter how it happens.
