Do you ever have a feeling of being watched when no one is around? Do you automatically get a message inside of your head and you know it’s not coming from you, but from a different world? There are several ways that the spirit world can try to get your attention, whether it’s from loved ones who have passed on or your spirit guides.

Here are 6 telling signs the spirit world is trying to contact you:

Do you see any of these signs?

1. You have vivid dreams and/or visions during meditation.

The spirit world will convey messages through dreams. They will also give us mini-movies during meditation when we let go of the chit chatter and open up consciousness to receive without static. They will create scenarios, or provide archetypes to get our attention. When you sleep, you are aligning with the spirit world. All your beliefs come down and you become more receptive to the other realms. Spirits will share things with you. All you have to do is ask deliberately before sleeping or meditating.

“The spirit world is able to get through to you easily when your mind is still and clear. Meditation is often referred to as ‘sitting in the silence. Whenever you want to reach Spirit from this side of life, start by sitting in the silence.” ~ James Van Praagh

2. Your senses are enhanced when the spirit world is trying to reach you.

Spirits communicate through smell, touch, taste, vision and sound. They can cling to your olfactory senses by letting you smell a flower or herb. They can cause a ringing in your ear as to let you know they are near you. When tones travel different dimensions, they come into our ears with high-pitched sounds. They can use your peripheral vision to show themselves through shadows. It’s in these moments that make no sense that the spirit world is touching you. Stay open and watch the miracles unfold.

3. Electronics start to act up.

Spirits will use lights and other electrical components to let you know they are nearby. We are made of matter; electricity is a conduit for them to charge up. They will turn off lamps, raise the volume on the radio, and change channels. They will also locate a special song that lets you know who is with you. Computers stop working, even a car won’t start…until they get your attention.

Remember that although bodies may pass away, the energy that connects you to a loved one is everlasting and can always be felt when you’re open to receiving it.” ~ Doreen Virtue

4. You have an unexplained knowing when you are attuned to the spirit world.

Have you ever had a definite knowing of sorts, and you don’t know why that thought popped into your head? That’s your spirit guides and loved ones. They use telepathy to communicate with us. Listen to that small voice that whispers at you, nudging you to do something, and follow your gut. That “knowing” is a deep inkling from the spirit world guiding you towards something magical. Whenever you ask for guidance, always wait for that small voice that lets you know what you need to do.

5. Goosebumps and chills appear often.

When you are aligned with spirit, body temperature changes. You get that cold chill that leads into goosebumps. Have you ever been talking about a deceased loved one and immediately got goosebumps? That’s them letting you know that they are with you. After all, we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Connection to the spirit world is home. Those goosebumps are simple reminders that this world and the spirit world are multidimensional.

6. You are guided by synchronicity.

Have you ever had a moment when you were thinking of something and the bumper sticker on a car at a red light gave you the answer? That’s spirit at it’s keenest. Every opportunity that shows up is a stepping stone to look deeper into your existence. Coincidences are signs from the other side that assure you’re on the right track. These little nudges are part of the Universal GPS system.

“We do not create our destiny; we participate in its unfolding. Synchronicity works as a catalyst toward the working out of that destiny.” David RichoThe Power of Coincidence: How Life Shows Us What We Need to Know

There is not separation in our realms. We are all united in one way or another. The spirit world will guide you if you are open to receive the messages. The more you meditate, create, let go and love, the easier it is for your guides to communicate with you. Gratitude is a huge payoff for all their assistance. Always count your blessings at the end of your day and remember that you are never alone.
