I actually have a related story from my personal life that I can add to this article. My grandfather, Herman Ahle was in the hospital in Parkersburg, WV for stomach cancer. My father and my Uncle Wid were there visiting him when he died. They instructed the hospital not to notify my 82 year old grandmother Nellie, that he had did because the house was the last one on a dead end road and she couldn’t get help if she needed it. They had been married over 50 years and had seven children, three of which were still born.
My dad and my uncle drove back to the old homestead and the moment they entered the living room, my grandmother told her sons that she knew my grandfather was gone because he stopped by to say goodbye. My dad never got over that. He was a man who didn’t scare easily, but this one episode, we knew never to mention again.
When your loved ones pass, it is often hard for us to cope. Whatever the reason, life does not get any easier even though deaths are supposedly an unavoidable part of human life. But what happens when you really feel that your loved ones are really around you – how can you tell?
Here are the top 5 happenings of how you can detect your loved one’s presence:
Your loved ones appear in your dreams – also called vivid or lucid dreams, these reality-like dreams are intense and emotional, like your loved one was really there.
You sense their ‘presence’ – you feel it, and can even see it, in the form of indentations on your bunk or just your 6th sense.
You feel them touching you – it could be their fingers or arms around you, providing a sense of comfort when you weep.
It is an unexplainable phenomenon – your phone signal was interrupted of all sudden, and there’s no storm.
You can smell them – suddenly, you smell your aunt’s perfume, or your grandma’s signature dish. And that brings back fond memories of the times you were with them.
