Why You Might Not Be Noticing Signs from Your Departed Loved Ones
Recognizing the Subtle Signs
During times of grief, we long for contact with those who have passed away, hoping to receive signs that they are still with us. However, sometimes we miss these signs, not realizing that they are all around us. There can be many reasons why you may be missing signs your departed loved ones are sending, I have found that for most people these are the two most common reasons:
The Veil of Grief: Grief can create a fog that obscures our ability to recognize the signs from our passed loved ones. Our emotions may be overwhelming, making it difficult to be fully present and receptive to the subtle messages they send. Understanding the impact of grief is the first step towards recognizing and embracing these signs.
Expectations and Grand Gestures: Many people who tell me they do not receive signs from their departed loved ones are often expecting grand, dramatic signs from them, overlooking the smaller, more subtle ways their passed loved ones can communicate. Signs can manifest as a gentle breeze, a familiar scent, or even a song on the radio. By broadening expectations and being open to the various forms signs can take, you will increase your chances of noticing the messages sent your way.
I always tell people to pay attention to the synchronicities in their life, as this is a very common way loved ones communicate with us. Examples of synchronicities can include, seeing your departed loved ones favorite flower, hearing their favorite song, or coming across their name unexpectedly. For some people, keeping a journal to document any synchronistic experiences that feel connected to their passed loved ones is very helpful. I've noticed people who actively seek out and acknowledge these smaller signs that come through synchronicity, receive more of them.
It's also important to trust your gut feelings and inner knowing, because signs from passed loved ones can come in the form of a simple hunch or a strong feeling. Follow your intuition and be aware of the signs that come through this innate sense.
Keep your heart and mind open to all the different forms of communication from the afterlife, and you'll find that your departed loved ones are always with you.
