9. Watch Your Pets
If the loved one was someone who was also fond of your pets, your cat or dog might see them and react to them. Does your dog sometimes wag his tail while staring across the room? Does your cat start purring for no apparent reason? Both dogs and cats have far superior hearing than we do. They can pick up sounds that expand beyond the scope of normal human hearing. Their sight is also different, allowing them to see further into the red spectrum.
Pets often come back to visit after they’ve passed too. Signs of their presence will be similar to the habits they followed in life. They will sleep in their favorite places and jump up on beds and couches with a pronounced landing. If your cat often liked knocking the knick-knacks off your mantel, you might find them on the floor on occasion after his passing, as well.
10. Watching for Old Habits
Was your father always complaining about people leaving the lights on in rooms after they left? One way he might let you know he’s there is to frequently turn the lights off, sometimes even while you’re still in the room. Was your grandmother fussy about where things went? If you rearranged her items, you might find them back in their old familiar locations.
Always bear in mind that it takes a tremendous amount of energy for spirits to manipulate the physical world. If you ask for a sign, look for the subtle signs as well as the obvious. If your best friend always called you on the phone on Thursdays, you might not receive a phantom phone call, but you might notice difficulties with the phone itself.
The soul is eternal and your loved ones will let you know this to the best of their abilities. Life goes on for them but in a different way. Watch for the signs because they are there. You just have to know where to look for them.
